Show Notes:

Our planned, but unplanned conversations
Pink Floyd were philosophers
From Heraclitus, to Lao Tzu, to Gita, to Deutsch
Where does decision making come from?
Projection 101
Can you versus can’t you read people’s mind
Jim throwing big fancy words like “Phylogenetic inertia”
Corn: The apex predator
Self-serving nature of memetic theory
The Mirror Philosophy
What is a “creator”?
Communication theory by Gregory Bateson
The Founding Murderer
Consequences of eating the fruit from the tree of knowledge
"The most entertaining outcome is the most likely.”
Hot media vs. Cool media
The Wire, and dumb Stringer
The state of accreditation
Balancing mystery with transparency
Knowing pop culture as a status symbol
And MUCH more!
Books Mentioned:

The Science of Storytelling; by Will Storr
The Status Game; by Will Storr
Happy; by Derren Brown
The Selfish Gene; by Richard Dawkins
Steps to an Ecology of Mind; by Gregory Bateson
War and Peace; by Leo Tolstoy
