#47 - Answering Profound Questions

My current list of Profound Questions. Feel free to repurpose them however you'd like and share the answers you get from others! Do you believe we are in a computer simulation? Do you believe we are alone in the cosmos? Do you believe consciousness is localized in the human brain? Do you believe in free will or determinism? Do you believe there is a global ruling class? Should one endeavor to join it? Do you believe AGI poses an existential threat to humanity? Do you...

#46 - Meditation Part 2 (feat. Jordan Rein)

Everything happens inside you. Your senses cause sensation in your body which trigger emotion, craving, hatred, clinging, etc and practicing Vipassana meditation teaches one that these sensations are impermanent, like everything in nature, and to be equanimous when these sensations arise inside is the key to eradicating your suffering.

#45 - Empathy & Truth (feat. Matthew Rein)

We frequently think we are open minded to all people, but do we truly empathize and ask questions about how they reached their perspectives? How can empathy make our perspectives more nuanced and intricate, taking in dozens of variables, rather than simple binary answers to such complicated issues? Action item: Go outside your comfort zone and ask someone that disagrees with you questions about how they reached their perspective. Thanks for your support in watching! If it's made a profound...

Episode 43 - Meditation (feat. Jordan Rein)

Why did we do our first 10 day meditation retreat in August 2016 and why are we going back to do a second 10 day meditation retreat in June 2017? Vipassana - inward vision - seeing things they way they really are - is an incredibly important and underrepresented skill in our world. The same way new photons are being shot from a light source each millisecond is the same way thoughts arise and leave our minds - it's so important to experientially practice recognizing this impermanence as it...

Episode 42 - Contemplating Truth (feat. Mahmoud Zaini & Omar Dweller)

Wikipedia is the best collective, decentralized, and free online source of truth. Let's use this as a model for future truth sourcing but not get our creativity stifled by the tools we use to organize truth. A simple deep breath can help make us feel more alive. The intertwined connection of all keeps us mesmerized. Our apologies about the video being cut, our quicktime player died.

Episode 41 - Epistemological Chaos, Honing In On Justified Truth

Imagine each epistemological point on a scale of 1-10, 1 being the most belief driven vs 10 being JUSTIFIED TRUTH. How to pass your free time on the internet. This in my opinion is a 2 - we rarely ever have conversations about what to watch or learn that will maximize our individual human potential as well as collective human flourishing. We are all scared to attempt to begin slapping objective ratings on the quality of content on the internet based on education per minute (or some...

Episode 37 - Life in the Bay (feat. Anting Shen)

Anting and I both grew up in South Dakota and we agree that one of the best things we learned was how to understand and empathize with conservative opinions. Now, as we've both gained liberal political insight in the Bay Area for five years, it enables us to be moderators between both sides in the hope there will be collective agreement on some truths. Anting currently works at DeepScale where he builds perception systems for autonomous vehicles.

Episode 35 - Science Communication (feat. Dr. Sarah Daniels)

Environmental health needs better science communication because of noise and biases produced by the media and other stakeholders. This is not just the health of the planet at risk, but the health of YOU. In order to become a better communicator, one must immerse themselves in the moderator position of an issue like climate science, financial responsibility, or automation to really empathize with both sides and highlight the truth in between people who are frequently talking over one...

Episode 34 - The Age Of Limited Moderation (feat. Dr. Sarah Daniels)

Paraphrasing Aristotle: "Moderation is the balance between excess and deficiency." In today's world we have excessive amounts of technology, food, media, and sugar among many other things. Yet we lack the self-control to sift through this chaos to find a happy medium. Can we get back to a happy medium in this digital age?
