  2. Bernardo Kastrup: Why materialism is baloney || March 2022

    Bernardo Kastrup: Why materialism is baloney || March 2022 —- Bernardo Kastrup began as an accomplished computer engineer and AI developer. Today he is one of the most influential thinkers in the intersection between spirituality and science. This episode is probably the most philosophically dense and intense so far. Kastrup covers so much ground it is impossible to do it justice in this brief description. Just dive in and listen. And stop once in a while to reflect. Having said that, here are some highlights: • On metaphysical idealism, which entails that the world is essentially mental: ”Just like your thoughts are mental, the physical world at large is made of mental processes, which present themselves on a screen of perception.” ”Everything is in consciousness. But that doesn't mean that everything is conscious.” • On how human-like an intelligent artificial neural network can become: ”We have no reason whatsoever to believe that a silicon computer can ever have a private conscious inner life in the way that you and I have.” • On the immense problems with materialism: ”You can not pull the qualities out of the quantities. You have to have only one thing. The quantities are descriptions of the qualities, not the generator of the qualities. Mass, spin, charge, momentum, amplitude etc are descripti…

  3. What Are Sexes? - A Video Essay

    What are sexes? And what are male and female? In this full length video essay, we’ll do a deep dive into how "sexes" are universally defined in biology and debunk common misconceptions.

    Sexes are not social constructs, nor are they defined by chromosomes, body types, or personal identity. They are distinct and complementary reproductive strategies.

  4. Crypto CEO Accidentally Describes Ponzi Scheme

    Whoops. The magical box was actually a pyramid this whole time. Sam Bankman-Fried recently went on a podcast and tried to explain "yield-farming" to Matt Levine and the OddLots podcast and ended up describing a ponzi scheme. Chaos ensues. Listen to the full podcast (starts around 24:00) https://play.acast.com/s/oddlots/92e2123c-6b1c-49b2-bd02-ae7f01252fba

    This video is an opinion and in no way should be construed as statements of fact. Scams, bad business opportunities, and fake gurus are subjective terms that mean different things to different people. I think someone who promises $100K/month for an upfront fee of $2K is a scam. Others would call it a Napoleon Hill pitch.

  5. Couldn’t Care Less. Cormac McCarthy in conversation with David Krakauer

    Cormac McCarthy has spent the last quarter century writing his novels at the mountain top retreat of the Santa Fe Institute (SFI) in New Mexico, an institute dedicated to the formal analysis of complex systems. In this documentary filmed in December 2017 at the library at SFI, Cormac in conversation with his colleague David Krakauer, reflects on isolation, mathematics, character, and the nature of the unconscious.

    Filmed by Karol Jalochowski Produced by Santa Fe Institute & Miller Omega Program

  8. The Optimal Morning Routine - Andrew Huberman

    Andrew Huberman, Ph.D., is a neuroscientist and tenured Professor in the Department of Neurobiology at the Stanford University School of Medicine. He has made numerous significant contributions to the fields of brain development, brain function and neural plasticity, which is the ability of our nervous system to rewire and learn new behaviors, skills and cognitive functioning.

    Huberman is a McKnight Foundation and Pew Foundation Fellow and was awarded the Cogan Award in 2017, given to the scientist making the most significant discoveries in the study of vision. His lab’s most recent work focuses on the influence of vision and respiration on human performance and brain states such as fear and courage. He also works on neural regeneration and directs a clinical trial to promote visual restoration in diseases that cause blindness. Huberman is also actively involved in developing tools now in use by the elite military in the U.S. and Canada, athletes, and technology industries to optimize performance in high stress environments, enhance neural plasticity, mitigate stress, and optimize sleep.

    Work from the Huberman Laboratory at Stanford School of Medicine has been published in top journals including Nature, Science, and Cell and has been featured in TIME, BBC, Scientific American, Discover, and other…

  9. Does Superdeterminism save Quantum Mechanics? Or does it kill free will and destroy science?

    Check out the math & physics courses that I mentioned (many of which are free!) and support this channel by going to https://brilliant.org/Sabine/ where you can create your Brilliant account. The first 200 will get 20% off the annual premium subscription.

    This is a video I have promised you almost two years ago: How does superdeterminism make sense of quantum mechanics? It's taken me a long time to finish this because I have tried to understand why people dislike the idea that everything is predetermined so much. I hope that in this video I have addressed the biggest misconceptions. I genuinely think that discarding superdeterminism unthinkingly is the major reason that research in the foundations of physics is stuck.

    If you want to know more about superdeterminism, these two papers (and references therein) may give you a good starting point:
