E11 - God is in the Rain, with Jason Silva
Jason Silva dropped in to discuss the human capacity to transcend our fears and tap into the deep meaning of existence through submission to one's own transformational psychological potential. We also touch upon the poetic aspect of the natural world as a mechanism for channeling peak experiences, and the human desire for immortality through technological means.

E10 - Storytelling in the Decentralized Age, with Melissa Lafsky
This week, Melissa Lafsky joins us to discuss the role of storytelling as it applies to the emerging space of decentralization. We cover the role of storytelling with respect to shaping human behavior, current narratives around crypto, and how our cultural stories inform what's possible technologically and economically.
E9 - Jeremy Lent
In this episode we sit down with Jeremy Lent, author of The Patterning Instinct. We cover topics ranging from the difference between Eastern and Western perspectives on the essential truths of our universe, to how these differences have led our civilizations down separate cultural paths. If you're interested in the intersection of Eastern and Western philosophy, and how these paths of development underlie a great deal of what we now take for granted, this is the perfect episode for you.
E8 - Jenn Hirsch
In this episode we speak with Jenn Hirsch, Global Technology Trend Scout at Ernst & Young, Futurist, and SciFi author, about a diverse set of topics ranging from the liminality of the present technological landscape, to the value of quiet contemplation and self-reflection within an increasingly interconnected world.

E7 - The Geometry of a Unified Physics, Bitcoin, and Beekeeping with Garrett Lisi
Garrett Lisi is an American theoretical physicist and adventure sports enthusiast. Lisi works as an independent researcher without an academic position. He's a strong proponent of balance in life. Lisi is known for "An Exceptionally Simple Theory of Everything," a paper proposing a unified field theory based on the E8 Lie group, combining particle physics with Einstein's theory of gravitation. The theory is incomplete and not widely accepted by the physics community. To support our work,...

E3 - Consciousness, Qualia, and Psychedelics with Andres Gomez Emilsson
In episode three we speak with Andres Gomez Emilsson, founder of the Qualia Research Institute. In Andres' words: "Once we recognize the computational role of consciousness, and the causal network that links it to behavior, a new era will begin. We will (1) characterize the various values of qualia in terms of their computational properties, and (2) systematically explore the state-space of possible conscious experiences. (1) will enable us to recruit the new qualia varieties we discover...
