    FBL8: Donald Hoffman - Why Reality Is a Lie, Online Dating, & A.I.

    FBL8: Donald Hoffman - Why Reality Is a Lie, Online Dating, & A.I.

    This week we sit down with cognitive psychologist and long-time professor at UC Irvine, Donald Hoffman.

    Hoffman has a long history working with some of the greatest minds in the history of humanity, including Francis Crick who was part of the team that discovered the double helix of DNA. His own endeavors are no less revolutionary, as he's currently spearheading a new theory that argues humans evolved a perception of reality that looks drastically different from the true appearance of objective reality. It seems a hard argument to make, but once you hear his ideas you'll understand how insightful and profound his work is.

    In addition to an in-depth exploration of this theory, we also discuss the evolutionary impacts of online dating, the future of artificial intelligence, and a whole bunch more.

    Donald Hoffman's newest book, A Case Against Reality, comes out August 13 and can be found on Amazon.

    FBL7: Zoltan Istvan - Implants, Religion, Transhumanism and Death.

    This week we sit down with journalist, author, and transhumanist, Zoltan Istvan.

    Zoltan Istvan is most commonly known for his book the Transhumanist Wager, his 2016 Presidential Campaign—where he drove across the United States in a bus shaped like a coffin—and his many contributions and appearance with media outlets such as National Geographic, Vice, and Wired.

    In this conversation, Zoltan and I explore the ideas of transhumanism and why he's so passionately dedicated to the cause. This takes us on a lovely tour through such light-hearted subjects as religion, death, and technological implants.

    FBL6: Annaka Harris - The Great Mysteries of Consciousness and Free Will

    The Feedback Loop - Episode 6

    This week we talk to author, editor, and consultant to science writers, Annaka Harris, whose brand new book, Conscious: A Brief Guide to the Fundamental Mystery of the Mind, just became a New York Time's Bestseller.

    In this episode, we explore some of the fundamental questions Annaka explores in her book, such as: what is consciousness? How did it evolve? Does free will exist? What are some of the common intuitions that we have wrong about our own minds? And panpsychism--the idea that consciousness is a fundamental property of matter.

    We also take a few detours to explore altered states such as meditation, as well as the role technology and artificial intelligence are playing in our relationship with consciousness.

Douglas has written more than a dozen books, which include "Throwing Rocks at the Google Bus", "Coercion", "Program or Be Programmed" and his latest book "Team Human"--which is also the title of this highly regarded podcast. This conversation explores a wide breadth of topics, from technological exploitation and consumerism to the power of narratives and universal basic income.
