    sadhgruru – truth is becoming the authority

    what a joy to have you here. You are among friends and it seems (Sadhguru laughs) that there are many who know of your work and there are many who don’t. Sadhguru: You are a highly educated man and I’m… but I’m devoid of education, so you have to (Laughter)… Dr. Benjamin R. Doolittle: Well, you know, as… Sadhguru: …make some allowances for me. Dr. Benjamin R. Doolittle: That’s lovely of you to say. I was so well educated, I have rediscovered a joyful curiosity. And while it is true I have many degrees after my name, as I’ve lost my hair and become more wrinkly (Sadhguru laughs), I’ve so…

    Artificial general intelligence: The domain of the patient, philosophical coder | Ben Goertzel

    My cousin who lives in Hong Kong is a game programmer, and he loves what I’m doing but he just tells me when we discuss it, “I need immediate gratification.” And he codes something and he sees a game character do something cool, right? And if you need that, if you really need to see something cool happen every day AGI is not for you. In AGI you may work six months and nothing interesting happens. And then something really interesting happens. So I think if someone doesn’t have that kind of stubborn, pigheaded persistence I will tend to employ them doing, for example, data analysis, because that gives immediate…

    The Map of Physics

    So physics is a huge subject that covers many different topics going from galaxies in the depths of space right down to subatomic particles. And if you don’t already know physics its difficult sometimes to see how all these different subjects are related to each other. So this is my attempt to show that in a map, so this is the map of physics. I hope you enjoy it. Physics can be broadly broken down in to three main parts: Classical Physics, Quantum Physics, and Relativity. We’ll start with classical physics and a good person to start with is Issac Newton. His laws of motion describe how everything made of…

    Fact vs. Theory vs. Hypothesis vs. Law… EXPLAINED!

    [MUSIC] We need to get something straight. Evolution by natural selection is a theory. So is climate change. But people keep saying that like it’s a bad thing… [MUSIC] I get it, I understand your frustration. We’re all searching for ultimate hashtag #truth, and complex, challenging ideas don’t always fit nice and neatly in our brains. But what is truth? Are there different levels of truth? Are some truths truthier than others? I don’t know. But I do know this: Science is the absolute best tool we have for understanding how the universe works, and theory is not a 4-letter word. If we’re going to trust science together, the least…

    Why Some Countries Are Poor and Others Rich

    There are 196 countries in the world. 25 of them are very rich, defined as having an average wealth per person of over $100,000 a year. They are: But far more countries are quite poor, and some – which we’re considering here – are very very poor. These are the 20 poorest countries in the world: where the per capital wealth is under a $1,000 a year, or under three dollars a day. Every country is now more or less on a path to growth, but the poor ones are growing very, very slowly. If Zimbabwe continues at its current growth rate, it will qualify as a ‘rich country’ in…

    How Platforms OWN You (Disney+, Netflix, Uber) – Wisecrack Edition

    Hey Wisecrack, Jared here.  You may have noticed a trend lately. It seems like every day, some company announces a new cloud or platform service for people to download.  A few months ago Google announced its Google Stadia game streaming platform, which will include YouTube integration, and allow gamers to play games from most any screen with an internet connection.  The announcement was met with some excitement from big game developers looking for new distribution deals… and… a lot of skepticism from gamers, prompting eyerolls and also some questions like, what games will be available? Will people actually own their games or will everything be subscription based? How will everyone’s…
