    Daniel Schmachtenberger: Covid 19 Situational Assessment, Risk Landscape & Possible Solutions

    Daniel Schmachtenberger: Covid 19 Situational Assessment, Risk Landscape & Possible Solutions

    This is an audio version of Covid 19 Situational Assessment, Risk Landscape & Possible Solutions, Daniel Schmachtenberger which was published on the Rebel Wisdom YouTube site March 22nd 2020.
    In this fast changing and overwhelming pandemic crisis, what is really going on, and what should individuals and governments do?
    Daniel Schmachtenberger works on global catastrophic risk assessment and mitigation, systemic fragility, and evolving societal architecture. He has been tracking this virus since its early outbreak in China and for the last few weeks has been working on supporting coordinated response strategies, interfacing with major institutional and private sector actors.
    In this situational assessment, he outlines some of the misconceptions about the virus, some likely trajectories for the US and the rest of the world, and lays out some concrete proposals for avoiding disaster.
    Daniel's recent post on Facebook outlined issues with misinformation and the information ecology during the pandemic: https://www.facebook.com/notes/daniel...
    Useful analysis for understanding the pandemic are the articles by Tomas Pueyo:

    Daniel's full bio from Helena: https://helena.org/about
    "Daniel has participated in projects to survey the landscape of existential and catastrophic risks, advance forecasting and mitigation strategies, and develop capacities for the kinds of multi-agent coordination needed to implement sufficient solutions. Associated work has been done to synthesize and advance civilizational collapse and institutional decay models, insofar as they are useful in both scenario modeling and designing more resilient systems.
    That body of work also explored the social architectures that give rise to the coordination failures underneath and driving all catastrophic risk scenarios, and identified a finite set of generator functions (believed to be a complete set). Categorical solutions to those generator functions would solve for the class of collapse obsoleting the need for focus on isolated instances. Such solutions are believed to be achievable and would represent the kernel for a new and robust civilizational model…that has the capacity for enduring antifragility in the presence of the (destabilizing) power conferred by decentralized exponential technology. 
    Advancing those models for long term viability, along with advancing the capacities for sense-making, design, and coordination needed to support the necessary nearer-term transitional and protective work, is Daniel’s mission and focus.
    Some of this thinking on these topics can be found here (mostly in podcasts):

    He has also done work in functional medicine and biotech, education and human development, and consulted local and global organizations on how to solve complex problems across many sectors."

    Tomas Pueyo: Going Viral over Corona

    This is an audio version of Going Viral over Corona, Tomas Pueyo which was published on the Rebel Wisdom YouTube site March 15th 2020.
    This is a companion piece to Rebel Wisdom's 'Sensemaking the Coronavirus': https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3--5k...
    He wrote a Medium post on Coronavirus that was shared 24 million times in a couple of days. Tomas Pueyo immersed himself in the data and produced an exhaustive 39 page analysis of the outbreak. In this exclusive interview with Rebel Wisdom he discusses the likely progression of the virus, and why the sensemaking around it seems to have broken down.

    Bret & Eric Weinstein: Broken Mice, Epstein & the DISC

    Bret & Eric Weinstein: Broken Mice, Epstein & the DISC

    This is an audio version of Broken Mice, Epstein & the DISC, Brett & Eric Weinstein which was published on the Rebel Wisdom YouTube site March 4th 2020.
    Does the response to the Jeffrey Epstein story, and the tale of the broken mice mean that journalism is broken? Recently Bret and Eric Weinstein put out a hugely popular podcast about a scientific discovery that calls into question the entire process of drug safety ('All Our Mice Are Broken' Episode 19 of The Portal). They say that over 20 years of trying to get interest in this story, the response from the medical and media establishment has been silence. Eric has termed this phenomenon the Distributed Idea Suppression Complex, or DISC.
    In this conversation with Rebel Wisdom's David Fuller, Bret and Eric lay out the story of the broken mice, and the response to their conversation, and also discuss the unanswered questions at the heart of the Jeffrey Epstein case.

    Lost Ways of Knowing

    Lost Ways of Knowing

    This is an audio version of Lost Ways of Knowing which was published on the Rebel Wisdom YouTube site on February 14th 2020.
    Culture is fragmenting into ideological tribes defined by rigid certainty and reductionist thinking. As a result, we're struggling to find new solutions to the significant challenges we face. What if it's the way we're perceiving that's the problem? Rebel Wisdom's Alexander Beiner has spent the last few months interviewing scientists, facilitators and systems theorists to explore the neuroscience, psychology and history of different ways of knowing, and how we can use them to make sense. It includes new interviews with John Vervaeke, philosopher Nora Bateson, and jazz theorist Greg Thomas, facilitator Bonnitta Roy and a brand new conversation between Iain McGilchrist and John Vervaeke.
    This film accompanies a three part written series which we're releasing on the Rebel Wisdom Medium channel. Chapter 1 is out now and can be found here: http://bit.ly/2wa2Lsf
    You can see some of the people in this film live at the Rebel Wisdom Festival, London, May 30/31 2020: https://www.rebelwisdom.co.uk/festival
