    Complexity, Scientism & The Brain Of The C-Elegans Worm

    Complexity, Scientism & The Brain Of The C-Elegans Worm

    Flagship Interview Podcast: 🎙️ A Curious Worldview - (this is the one I speak about at the end)

    The difference between understanding the components of something versus how that same thing works can be everything.
    It’s clearly not a universal rule. By understanding the components of a bike, and then how each component behaves with the other we can confidently claim to know how a bike works. I know that cycling the sturdy pedal will pull the chain that will then turn the wheels.
    Everything else around that core functioning is just aesthetic or qualitative detail. 
    But by mapping out all the organic components of a human body, from organs to bones and everything in between – does our understanding of each component then inform to confidently assert how it all works? I am not sure.
    Just because you can map out a system does not mean you understand how it behaves.

    Understanding Regression Towards The Mean

    Understanding Regression Towards The Mean

    Flagship Interview Podcast: 🎙️ A Curious Worldview

    Regression towards the mean attempts to dampen our hyperbolic reaction to both outliers and those significant but rare exceptions.
    A classic example of regression towards the mean is a very familiar one to my countrymen of Australia. How regression towards the mean applies to those who are ‘good‘ at pokies (slots, for my dear international reader).

    Christian Busch | The Link Between Antifragility & Serendipity + How To Invite Serendipity Into Your Life

    Christian Busch | The Link Between Antifragility & Serendipity + How To Invite Serendipity Into Your Life

    Flagship Interview Podcast: 🎙️ A Curious Worldview

    Article Attached To This Podcast! - https://atlasgeographica.com/christian-busch-serendipity/

    Life can be understood backwards, but it must be lived forwards.
    How can we predict a future of infinite possibilities based on a finite experience of the past? 
    Along the lines of Taleb's fooled by randomness metaphor - we all cross the busy street every day - and although some fools will occasionally make it to the other side, blindfolded to the world while others who meticulously path their way will still be wiped out - noticing the serendipity, noticing the infinite potential of divergent paths, at least this returns to you the liberty of control and hopefully, if your lucky, an exposure to serendipity that can change your life precisely the way you dreamt it would.
    There is much to this podcast, in it, you can expect to learn about...

    Ergodicity Simply Explained (Nassim Taleb's Favourite Concept)

    Ergodicity Simply Explained (Nassim Taleb's Favourite Concept)

    Flagship Interview Podcast: 🎙️ A Curious Worldview

    Perhaps I am reaching beyond my grasp, but here is ergodicity simply explained.
    In the most basic terms I can manage. An ergodic scenario, whose phenomenon extracted would then be explained as ergodicity – is when the average outcome of a group is the same as the average outcome of an individual, over time.

    The Precautionary Principle | Nassim Taleb

    The Precautionary Principle | Nassim Taleb

    Flagship Interview Podcast: 🎙️ A Curious Worldview

    99% of the things we do in our daily lives are based on the precautionary principle. Since many of the decisions we make, the risks (no matter how inconsequential) are typically not understood until after the decision has been made.
    The precautionary principle is an instinctual survival mechanism that protects us from the ultimate risk. The risk of ruin. The risk of blowing up. The risk of death.

Keep up the good work!

Thanks for the short, concise segments. You really distill the key points down into sound bites.

Short, concise, and to the point.

Great for a refresher on the Incerto.

Fantastic use of profanity. Makes it real.

Keep on it.
