We uncover the most rebellious ideas in philosophy, human potential and transcendence to find direction through the chaos of the times.

    Spirituality & Conspiracy. What's Going On?

    Spirituality & Conspiracy. What's Going On?

    Since the start of the pandemic there has been an exponential growth in all-encompassing conspiracy narratives, with the viral success of the 'Plandemic' documentary trailer being the most popular example.
     
    In particular we have seen traditional right wing conspiracy narratives combine with traditional left wing alternative, spiritual communities.
     
    What is this new phenomenon, and what is causing it?
     
    In this film in Rebel Wisdom's Sensemaking series we try to understand the nexus between spirituality and conspiracy thinking.

    What the F**k Do We Do? Sensemaking & Tribalism

    What the F**k Do We Do? Sensemaking & Tribalism

    Rebel Wisdom's Sensemaking Series is all about the problem of Truth in the digital age.
     
    This film looks at how the alternative media creates and enforces tribal boundaries, and argues that some kind of mediation is needed to tackle the spiral of polarisation and division.
     
    The first film 'What the F**k Is Going On?' looked at the crisis of traditional media, and has had 330,000 views in a month: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=VkKnO...

    Now What the F**k is Going On? Sensemaking Series

    Now What the F**k is Going On? Sensemaking Series

    Rebel Wisdom's Sensemaking Series is looking at the problem of truth in the digital age. If we can't agree on what is true, how can we even begin to solve any of the other problems we are facing.
     
    In the first film in the series 'What the F*ck is Going On', a month ago, we looked at the growing crisis in journalism. The crisis has continued to accelerate in the last few weeks.
     
    In this edition, Rebel Wisdom founder, journalist David Fuller speaks to Jesse Singal from the Blocked and Reported podcast, and also brings in new material with Bret Weinstein, and frameworks to understand what's happening from Jordan Hall.

    Can Truth Survive Big Tech? Tristan Harris

    Can Truth Survive Big Tech? Tristan Harris

    How is social media and big tech pushing us towards conflict and polarisation?
     
    Tristan Harris has been called the "conscience of silicon valley". He worked for Google as a Design Ethicist until 2016, when he became so concerned about the direction tech was taking us that he quit, to set up the Centre for Humane Technology.
     
    In this conversation with Rebel Wisdom's David Fuller, they discuss how the incentive structure of the "attention economy" is turning us into different kinds of beings, and that if we can't recover some human values, then the future for humanity looks bleak.

    What Happened to the Intellectual Dark Web? Bret Weinstein

    What Happened to the Intellectual Dark Web? Bret Weinstein

    The Intellectual Dark Web was framed as a space to have the conversations that were being frozen out by the mainstream platforms.
     
    Evolutionary biologist Bret Weinstein was one of the most high profile victims of extreme campus culture in Evergreen College in 2017.
     
    What does he make of the trajectory of the Intellectual Dark Web project over the last two years?
     
    This interview was conducted in late February 2020.
     
    This film is part of Rebel Wisdom's Sensemaking Series, see part 1, 'What the F*ck is Going On?' here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=VkKnO...
     
    Part 2 is: My Journey with Jordan Peterson & the Intellectual Dark Web: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=NXpWI...

    Music and Transformation, Tim Booth & James

    Music and Transformation, Tim Booth & James

    The music of James contains one of the most complete records of the process of spiritual transformation in music. But until now, the author of these lyrics has not shared where his inspiration came from.
     
    While most of the band's contemporaries in late 80s Manchester such as the Stone Roses and Happy Mondays were fuelled by hedonism and ecstasy, singer Tim Booth was deep in hardcore spiritual practice.
     
    In this full and frank conversation with Rebel Wisdom's David Fuller, Tim explains the full backstory for the first time.
     
    There is a Medium article alongside this film with links to many of the band's songs referenced in the film: https://medium.com/rebel-wisdom/music...
