  1. Sam Harris & Nicholas Christakis. Above the Discord: Evolving Humanity in the Age of the Internet.

    A new discussion is emerging as the initial optimism of a self-regulated global internet community gives way to concerns involving the power and vulnerability of tech platform businesses in their influence over civil society and safety. Increasingly it seems clear that the digital revolution, in which information, misinformation and disinformation co-travel worldwide at the speed of thought, needs to be thought of as requiring more than a small adjustment to our politics and culture as financial incentives beckon those in control of content distribution networks to place their fingers on the scales in the marketplace of ideas.

    In the modern era, the analog of the public square is the private tech platform. This means that business and regulatory concerns are increasingly coming to dictate what can and cannot be said in the privatized public square.

    As part of a broader dialogue and conference on balancing our constitutional rights to free speech against the changes wrought by digital platforms in the way information is constructed and spread, the Center for Innovation, Growth and Society (CIGS) recently hosted a conversation between Sam Harris and Nicholas Christakis entitled Above the Discord: Evolving our Common Humanity in the Age of the Internet.

    Changing technology is forcing us to re-ev…

  5. John Vervaeke - The Cognitive Enhancements of Shamanic Altered Stares of Consciousness

    This is a presentation given by John Vervaeke at a conference titled "Altered Mind/Altered Being: The Utility of Shamanic Practice"

    This talk will argue that shamanic ritual can induce an altered state of consciousness that enhances insight, mindsight, implicit learning, and optimizes cognition and consciousness in an integrated manner. This account integrates well theoretically with Winkleman’s work on cross modular and neuroaxial integration.

He currently teaches courses in the Cognitive Science program including Introduction to Cognitive Science, and the Cognitive Science of Consciousness; courses in the Psychology department on thinking and reasoning with an emphasis on insight problem solving, cognitive development with an emphasis on the dynamical nature of development, and higher cognitive processes with an emphasis on intelligence, rationality, mindfulness, and the Psychology of wisdom.

  6. Building an Ecology of practices for self transcendence with John Vervaeke: EMP Podcast 25

    As living, thinking creatures, we are constantly faced with problems that must be solved in order to survive and thrive, but have you stopped to think about how do we do it?

    In the infinite set of variations on how we can act and interact with the world, how do we decode what information is relevant and zero in on actions that yield the results we desire?

    In our second episode with John Vervaeke we are going to spend a good amount of time unpacking the incredible intricacies of decision making and give you a basic framework for understanding how to differentiate between the types of problems you face and the strategies that will lead you towards effectively solving them.

    As we’ve covered in many of our podcasts, one of the core issues that we face in movement and in life is the ability to orient to chaos and act, then weigh the results of our actions and apply that which we learned to future efforts.

    Once we begin to understand the nature of the problems we face and how we can improve our ability to face them, it’s important to structure an ecology of practices around developing our tools of perception and action. Through this process we begin to take an active and empowered role in building ourselves and co…

  8. Vervaeke-Pageau 2018 Revisited, 2 Legitimate Ways of Finding Meaning in the Information Age

    #vervaeke #pageau #meaning_crisis My commentary on the John Vervaeke interview here - https://youtu.be/2PGglfl5j_I on Jonathan Pageau’s channel. Two approaches to Spirituality​, one more traditionally Western, One that is an approach based on Cog-Sci and Buddhism. Both excellent depending on your temperament and inclination. Both excellent for the problems we face today. Both have Dynamic Quality!!

    I read from Chapter 6 of John’s book here: https://books.openedition.org/obp/4274
