    James Fallon & Jakob "The Striking Viking" Lovstad: The psychopath professor and the psychologist fighter

    James Fallon & Jakob "The Striking Viking" Lovstad: The psychopath professor and the psychologist fighter

    James Fallon is the author of The Psychopath Inside: A Neuroscientist's Personal Journey into the Dark Side of the Brain ... and I'm wondering if he's the kind of guy we'd send on a trip into space.

    The 72 year old Fallon got up at 05.30 to talk to me from Orange County - and with me in my studio in Oslo, I brought the 190 cm (6.3), 93 kilo ex light heavyweight mma legend Jakob "The Striking Viking" Løvstad, currently training to become a psychologist, aka punching people's brains with his brain.

    This is barely enough to contain James' boundless energy.

    Robin Hanson: Mind Uploads could be a bigger revolution than AI

    Robin Hanson: Mind Uploads could be a bigger revolution than AI

    Robin Hanson on how mind uploads could make space irrelevant.

    The Fermi paradox is the mysterious lack of traces of alien
    civilized life.

    Professor Robin Hanson invented a term to describe that something may doom all civilizations to die before they go interplanetary (and become visible from earth). He coined this unknown factor "The Great Filter". Today, the term Great Filter has become quite mainstream and understandable - just look at Elon Musk's pinned tweet since august: "We must pass the great filter."

    But Robin has moved on - this idea was his in 1996! We want to know what he's up to next. So this episode is not about the great filter, but about Robin's
    excellent, and very unique, book "Age of Em". (We'll have to save his new book "Elephant in the brain" for later - we only had two hours!)

    Philip Lubin: Building a giant laser to save the world

    Philip Lubin and Breakthrough Starshot.

    Stephen Hawking's last speeches were often about his gigantic dream project, funded by physichist and billionaire Yuri Milner: The Breakthrough Initiative. It is mindblowing in scope and ambition. Professor Philip Lubin is one of the minds that inspired one part of this initiative: Breakthrough Starshot.
