We should also be looking for the next leap in philosophy trends, we need new forms of interpreting reality to have a leap in technological progress. (just the way the introduction of “science” (scientific method, testability) propelled us to the world in which we are now)
Learning and living philosophy is REALLY important. Just as we evolve in every other knowledge field, we must evolve as philosophers. When some philosophers decided that reality had to be questioned (tested) we came up with the scientific method, which brought about more innovation in the last 200 years than in thousands before it. Just because we started questioning our reality differently than before (like shit was made by god and stuff, we learned stars where massive balls of hydrogen and helium collapsing into heavier elements which make up most of what you and I are made of.
What will the next breakthrough in philosophy bring to the aid of our creativity?
Something as simple as the invention and adoption of bread was a key driver for the foundations of agriculture and the evolution of civilization.
I think the outlook of the future is not so good when we look at the eating habits of the average american person, which seems to be similar to other consumption habits in American society. We eat crap, we buy crap, we watch crap, we listen to crap, we waste time on stupid things, the top search trends on Google show that americans just care about gossip and vanal things.
If the future of this country depends on the majority of the people in it (and not in a brilliant few that drive innovation and cannibalize on the majority), I think american supremacy has its days numbered, not to mention that we’re going to keep spending a lot of money on healthcare thanks to our eating habits.
I suck at small talk, I like to think about other things, all my true friends aren’t here so I thought I might as well meet some other like minded people by recording a series of thought starters.
On this first episode I talk about realizing that the complexity of the world depends directly on the level of interactions that humans have with each other. The more of us that can do more specialized things, when working together bring technology forward. Therefore, think of all the things that will come out as the internet empowers us to work together on all fields of human knowledge.
If I get enough traction the plan is to shoot outside, in HD, edit to minimize playback time and save you time, and basically produce a whole season (22 episodes each)
