    Jim Rutt - How to Transition to a GameB Society

    Our guest in this episode is Jim Rutt, a systems thinker, host of the Jim Rutt Show podcast, and former key player in several technology companies. He was also the Chairman of Santa Fe Institute, where he was working in the scientific study of consciousness and evolutionary artificial intelligence.
    We had Jim as a guest on the show a year ago, where he did an introduction to the concept of GameB and talked about the history of the movement.
    Today we want to catch up with Jim about some of the ways that the concepts of GameB are being applied in practice. Earlier this year, he published a Medium article called A Journey to GameB, which lists lots of practical steps for transitioning into this new social operating system.

Extra Nutritional Food For Thought

I’ve read some comments on here about how the guests or hosts ramble on a bit and I wanted to comment on that. This podcast showcases people who are on the leading edge of their fields. If you want to learn more about consciousness, cognitive sovereignty, spirituality, tech., etc. then this is a superb podcast for you, but you will need to be well informed or at least willing to research/read up on the topic at hand to fill in for the parts where the guest speaker goes a bit over your head. It is stressed at the beginning and end of the podcast to look up the show notes on their website and to look for the guest speakers book(s). I enjoy this podcast for this exact reason. Personally, I’m not looking for brief overviews of new and emerging systems and ideas. This podcast introduces me to these systems and ideas and then also satisfies my hunger for a deeper understanding and how I can apply them to my everyday life. As a college student I’ve currently been using episodes 111-113 with Ken Wilber to apply the integral framework of consciousness in my essays to reevaluate topics such as the decolonization of museums and the emergence of Neoclassicism and Romanticism in art. This is definitely scoring me some points with my professors and helping me view things through multiple lenses. On another note, special shout out to my personal favorite episodes with Duncan Trussell (my favorite content creator) and Dr. Kirby Surprise! I hope to see more episodes over synchronicities, manifestation, and ceremonial magick soon! :)
