But summoning the determination to rise to a challenge and succeed is a virtue.” - Calum Chace Today’s guest argues that in the course of this century, the exponential growth in the capability of AI is likely to bring about two "singularities" - points at which conditions are so extreme that the normal rules break down.

EP 144: “Our Search for Belonging: How Our Need to Connect Is Tearing Us Apart" with Howard Ross

If certain things are described to you as being real they’re real for you whether they’re real or not.” — James Baldwin We are living in a time of mounting political segregation that threatens to tear us apart as a unified society.
