  • It seems like humanity is heavily limited by biology/ physiology, in terms of our decisions and priorities being so biased to biological imperatives. But if the rational ideal is higher quality humans until we can evolve ourselves and deprecate the current version of humanity, by avoiding cascading negative genetics and environment conditions that could lead to extinction, then would the imperative to be a superior consciousness be lost or less relevant? It seems the biggest problem is communication between people and organisations/ sharing data, and 'understanding' massively complex systems in real time. Maybe an AI could do it and outline goals for different strategies, depending on whether the objective is to make homo sapiens last for billions of years, or whether to optimise for efficiency and either rapidly evolve humanity, or just rapidly evolve a non human origin sentience that could continue to acquire data from the universe and grow.. But then without that biological imperative, what would be the point of acquiring data and growing? Would you become like a sentient black hole that just consumes with no actual goal than to consume?

  • I see what you did there.. I came on this vid through some clickbait and had no idea what to expect but the title sounded interesting. Right at the start you made two fundamental nonsensic statements that raised my eyebrows, until I saw that you're actually just a paid comedian for the Gates circus. You're not even hiding the fact that you're a soundboard for his new book. No surprise there is a massive amount of paid thumbs up. The two initial statements, that basically destroy all further reasoning: 1. Perceiving the individual's brain (=mind) as just a piece on a chestboard, while all other information and tools out there are actually a collective Extention of the individual, therefore could be perceived as the "collective" mind. This is utter nonsense. It may be valid in some sci-fi scenario from Star Trek where the Borg only exist in a collective mind and the individual has no freedom of self expression or creative contribution, other than assimilation of all that is external (i.e. a perverted dystopian society that can only dreamed up by a sick mind for humanity, like Gates..), but the human civilization does not stem from a central mind that expanded and assimilated all it encounters, to strip it from value of self. The human civilization has thrived and has reached its current state BECAUSE of the ability of the individual to be free in thought and expression. Without this individuality, humanity would not progress, as it would not be able to meet challenges laid before it, for lack of creativity that is needed on an individual level. Each human mind is much more like a funnel, when it comes to external tools and information: it is not just a piece in the broader collective that can be called "The Mind", but it is a separate entity. WE ARE ALL INDIVIDUALS. The human mind filters all that comes in and dissects and interprets these on an individual level. This singular process is what results in an unbiased outcome where something new is born. The great composers, scientists, leaders, sportsmen would never have achieved anything without their individual ability to interpret information and translate it to action by their own design and decision. By talking about the "collective" mind, the agenda of assimilation is pushed, which is pretty much the loss of freedom of the individual. It reflects the thinking of people who look down on humanity as merely a "tool" for purposes that they consider "sacred". Like Gates, perceiving humanity as merely a tool for his "divine" goals. 2. "We need to release zero". Well, this is the most unscientific bomb ever :D "Emissions are our enemy". Sure buddy, just like viruses our, yeah?.. The demonizing of all that is part of nature is basically raising walls AGAINST nature, instead of realizing that we ARE nature. We ARE a part of it and if we fight nature, we fight ourselves, we fight our very existence. Just like our bodies need viruses, needed them for millions of years to develop our current immune systems, the same way we nature needs emissions, so that the cycle of life can be maintained. What you actually meant is that there should be BALANCE in how much we emit versus how much the planet can absorb and transform. Photosynthesis is a basic principle that a software seller might not be familiar with, but is the essential part of life. No carbondioxide, no plant life. No plant life, no oxigen. No oxigen, no humanity. The difference between survival and extinction is in HOW MUCH emission can be a sustainable part of the cycle. Not that emission should be ZERO. Now, of course this whole propaganda video is just to make people scared so we cut back on emissions and the "zero emission" mantra is a blatant lie and you know it. I don't mind this bone, if it would lead to results of sustainability, the masses will just swallow whatever you push down their throats anyway. But the issue is the means: Bill Gates does not aim for harmony, because he has no clue what that is. He sees enemies: in viruses, in emissions, in societies, in human thinking in general. As a result, he only sees wars as a possibility to encounter all that he perceives as "bad". As soon as you start fighting something that is part of nature however, you make things much, much worse. Gates tries to fight viruses in Africa by developing vaccines against illnesses that simply reemerge and cannot be stopped, but the weakened immune systems of the vaccinated make them much more susceptible to illnesses and the net result is more people dying, epidemics, much more virulent and heavier strains, etc. The same way, he wants to fight emissions by buying up land and developing GMO crops, so we all turn vegan and thus less "emmissions" occur through mass meat production. His fundamental flaw in thinking is that this way, not only will we destroy the natural soil much faster (as mass crops will be exploiting farmland faster than smallholder cattle that graze and reinvigorate farmland), but through GMO manipulation the human genome will get weakened immune systems and be deprived of micronutrient-rich soil products. The net result is a systematic destruction of human health. Mass meat production is a crime, no doubt about it. Few people know however that it is only about 30% of global meat production: the vast majority is still from smallholders. But the solution should be by regulating the profit-driven corporations and force them to implement grazing animals set free, instead of speeding up production in batteries and cages. Gates uses the dark side of the meat industry to judge on meat consumption as a whole, which is the biggest lie ever. Don't believe the hype of these clowns, unless you want to eat fake meat made of maggots in 10 years from now, maggots that live on GMO crops.

  • Love the music. If I were able, I'd say much the same with that concision. Humans are easily manipulated - because of their sociality. Psychologists use the convincing deception of 5-6-year-olds as a mark of intelligence. For deliberative democracy to work, a large percentage of the population would need to have a fair understanding of human psychology and sociology to know and accept our human conditions or bias. I see so much binary or black and white type of thinking, and 'belief' of facts being what your peers tell you. Australian schooling may have deliberately omitted logic as an essential life tool. In my rural region, there are many with borderline personality disorder. Many were neglected in early childhood, as the rural region has been for 120 years. We appear to be going into a similar situation as those in the isolated Middle Ages. [Many concentrate within a narrow range of Facebook contacts, but in reality have little information of the outer world or even the 'outsiders' living inside the region.] One must have a range of life experiences over years to gain multi-perspectives, as well as research history. The more surveys we do, with a range of people from differing cultures, ages, politicians to the homeless, the better we feel that we have 'reason' of what may be appropriate in a diverse society. We must know from healthy to various health conditions also. What we aren't talking about is a consensus over the reality of humans being in a range of mentalities from psycho-sociopathic, without empathy for other beings, to those who give their lives for humanitarian purposes. Between the Wolves and the Sheep, there are even the disadvantaged who become the abusers of others. Our politicians speak of competition, and our state then seems to reflect this with a high rate of scamming and parasitic behaviour evolving into local area's as they dangle carrots to the locals [to rip up the railway line for nebulous reasons]. There's little logic here. Our local media is very restricted, and people repeat the same actions - expecting a different result. Or perhaps they just get involved in very fragmented environmental groups to be involved in a peer group or club. Yes, humans do things to be social and accepted by even tiny groups. With psychopathic narcissistic behaviour or BPD, those desiring power or the centre of attention, state governments encourage employment in agencies that once advocated for local human rights. Old staff are replaced with those agreeing with government neglect, and the reasoning used along this channel. We truly already have an Orwellian takeover, but stealthily done over decades, few have looked or attempted reasoning using a diverse range of alternative perspectives. Youth won't notice when their hands resemble a 'smart' phone one day. They will be connected! It's human nature to avoid life's horror or reality using natural endorphins and a loss of memory. Volcanoes explode, and the next generation rebuilds on the volcanic slopes. Full and logical reasoning may be nowhere near any average of what people think. Witches may yet be burned. Messengers are shot. I ask my friends what they think about matters. My father played devil's advocate. Buddhism suggests we question our own thoughts, or at least not attach ourselves too closely to them. Family and friends are mostly gone. Humanitarians who would have saved the day exposing our terrible neglect; have died, or been made uncontactable. Covid is the coating of an iceberg. If we're ill and can't drive, we can't escape our hell in paradise. There's no one around to communicate face-to-face in a relaxed non-commercial environment. Some say new community services, where people are driven around instead of allowed the freedom to travel independently, are like paying to have prison guards or chaperones and limiting where one goes. There's no rationality or logic, when people just accept this, as they have no perspective of over 50 years of the region's history. Tree changers don't know we had quite a reasonable rail-based transport system in the sixties. Some of the youth think kayaking in our polluted rivers is a form of public transport. People have no comparisons to ponder in small-town parochial thinking. Some do not want to think about reality, and will avoid any in-depth discussion. I asked someone I knew in a village street, after my 'spiel' on reality, what he thought. He said it's a bit 'In Your Face' for some. Sometimes people on the autistic spectrum wish to get to the point, and talk of the awful things in reality, that many I now see, avoid because there in pain and focused on themselves. They're on antidepressants and such, and have illogical thoughts, such as, 'Think positively, or be optimistic, and things will change that way"! I attend human rights meetings, and nothing pragmatic comes of it. The talk on 'Democracy' had not even mentioned the word. Our state government department renamed state rail, as 'transport for the future', while equally saying it wishes to 'divest itself' of all public assets. How can there be logic and reasoning when we use words like 'future-proofing' which puts people in stupefied mode, accepting a word without clarifying its meaning. Are we moving into 'triple-speak' from Orwellian 'double-speak' where the true intention of eradicating the future, is boldly said as if it meant something vaguely opposite? Even 'future-guaranteeing' is extremely vague. We are in a 'fast world', with no time to really communicate properly or deeply, and now being kept divided and separated, with no means of meeting a diverse range of folk, as one does travelling by longer distance rail services.

  • Most of us humans have prejudices and laziness and identity to which we associate ourselves . Once we have had associated ourselves to a particular identity we can't make unbiased decisions . In the ancient Indian spiritual education system , the students were told "aham brahmasami" (meaning that they are a part of the universe). I feel that having this identity helps in being less baised while taking descisions . It's beneficial for us to reason correctly because if we have the right ideas we will take better actions leading to a better life . Leaving pride , ego , identity while resoning is the best thing to do , having this attitude really yeilds tremendous fruits in life , I can tell by personal experience .

  • Haidt had a great analogy for this. We like to think that reason is the cart driver and emotion is the horse pulling it--that our reason keeps us going in the right direction, without waivering on the whims of where our emotions want to go. In fact, it's more like the other way around. Emotion is the driver, and it steers reason wherever it likes.

  • Excellent episode. Very thought-provoking. And I think the lottocracy idea is actually rather good. Maybe you could expand the idea so that instead of one group of, say, twelve getting together to learn, debate, and come up with a recommendation, there could be multiple groups of twelve, each making a recommendation, and we could see if the majority of these recommendations agree with each other and go from there. By the way, my take on the pronunciation of 'Eratosthenes' is 'air-a-TOSS-thin-knees.'

    • @Son agreed. Politics needs a revolving door in order to keep moving. There's always the case that mistakes can be made but removing the "career politicians" and the "political class" from government by turning the executive branch of government into a jury system we could actually make more decisions that correct each other as they go along. Studies show diverse juries come up with better decisions than homogenous ones

    • @Hayan Imadi I’ve never thought about or heard of a political system like this before. Im sure if something like this was implemented new problems would arise from it, but it seems like a system that would be able to actually get stuff done by taking advantage of the massive amount of thinking power of so many millions of people many governments aren’t taking advantage of. The extremely divided political dialogue happening in the US and many other countries is only pitting us against eachother. We should be working together towards common and real goals instead of setting false and easy to attain goals that deliver quick satisfaction which requires the demonization/scapegoating of others!

  • Lost me at "the internet gives voices to more perspectives than ever before in our history", This golden age didn't last long. collectively improving reasoning only works if the person/party/group listening wants to hear your voice. They may choose to pretend you never said anything for any number of reasons. Feelings get hurt, they believe they're right no matter what based on a fallacy they don't want you to challenge, could also be that they simply don't want to bother. They can even get so tied up into their own reasoning that they outright reject reality as a whole. Think about how the word delusion recently got rechristened as "personal truth". Having that spiritual base is good, but when reality comes knocking it's really more important to give "the truth" more weight. We can't be apache helicopters even if the majority agrees that that is the truth. That said I would say we're sort of in a dark age where voices still get marginalized, but the marginalized voices sort of flip-flopped, and it doesn't seem like the silencing of the newly marginalized voices is going to let up anytime soon. I don't know about anyone else but I'm not the type to just roll with a narrative that just doesn't address reality. If we look at the court systems, I wouldn't ever want to be that person who knows whats right but chooses not to share it. If you do have your ability to reason in order, and you're facing opposition on an issue important to you, you will stand alone in favor of what's right. Think the Twelve Angry Men movie. Tl;dr: collectivism vs individualism

I feel like I need a drink to calm my anxiety after even thinking about the very idea. The masses aren't experts; we simply can't learn everything. We have experts for a reason. We developed job specialization for a reason. Imagine some important political decision falling to a flat-earther, a creationist, an anti-vaxer, a Trump supporter, and a Klan dragon. A lottocracy would literally turn the world into a real-life version of Idiocracy. I would rather be ran by a rogue, super-intelligent, AI, dictator.

    • Lool bootlicker. The premise of a lottocracy is the same as a representative democracy except the representatives are better at representing you because they act like a jury. They would be paid trained etc but not becoming entrenched into the political class and start having different interests. I'm a political science major and I've been telling people for years it takes no expertise to be in politics, just votes. There are fundamentally no qualifiers. Trudeau won because of his dad, Trump won because of a reality TV show and his branding. It's better to have a revolving door in politics than invite the most power hungry and attention seeking sociopaths to run for the highest offices in the land.

  • The premise that we live on a spinning ball in space is a fun one that’s entirely based on confirmation biases.

  • I actually think about this all the time since i read The Prefect by Alastair Reynolds a couple years ago. In the book there is a world where this is how they make decisions. Really cool.
