    Imagine waking up from a simulated reality where everything you know is interpreted and never truly experienced. Is it possible the reality you’ve known for the last few decades is no reality at all? In this episode, Donald Hoffman returns and takes a deeper dive with Tom to discuss the complexities of consciousness perceived in and out of spacetime. Donald shares the possibilities of consciousness and the infinite nature of theories that exist outside of the virtual reality headset he uses to describe the version of reality you may still be experiencing. Take the plunge into this conversation and challenge the consciousness of what you call your true self.

    “ Science has not yet been studying objective reality outside of our space time virtual reality, that from an evolutionary point of view, was just evolved as a way for us to play the game of life, and stay alive long enough to reproduce, not to show us the truth.” [8:06]
     
    “That's what spacetime is. Spacetime, the sun and the moon, physical objects, everything that we see inside of space and time is just our visualization tool. The reality we're interacting with is nothing like the visualization tool. There's nothing like space and time. It's a whole network of interacting conscious agents outside of space time, a vast social network. And we've made the rookie mistake of assuming that our headset, VR, our visualization tool, is the final reali

Tom’s a real one

Absolutely undeniable authenticity and value in this podcast. Tom’s basic thesis of life that “mindset is everything. Your mind is all you have, it’s all you’ve ever had, it’s all you have to offer other people.” Is true and we can all know it subjectively

AMAZingAmazing007 ,

The best interview program

This is not just a podcast! This is TV interview!
Tom is the best interview host in the field of exploring human potential!

the real smitty ,

Too many commercials

I get it’s how you pay the bills but far too many paid advertising spots really takes away from the great message in the shows.
