The Case Against Reality with Professor Donald Hoffman, Part 1, #32
2 days ago
Do we see reality as it actually is? Have you ever wondered if what we see around us every day is actually...there? Is this actually the Matrix?!
Buckle up and take your shrooms for this one...
Donald Hoffman is a Professor of Cognitive Science at the University of California, Irvine.
His TED talk "Do We See Reality?" has garnered over 3 million views and takes a dive off the deep end of the consciousness pool as it explores our place in the universe and our perceptions of our very own lives.
Hear him explain and me attempt to understand how:
1. Humans are not made to see the truth
2. What reality actually looks and feels like
3. Scientifically, are we truly capable of altering our realities since we are not perceiving the "real" one anyway?
4.How we have evolved to be great at lying and deceiving ourselves and what to do about it
Part 2 is going to go even deeper on this subject AND talk about how anxiety and guilt are evolutionary tactics that are not necessary anymore. We also talk about the role meditation, prayer, and hallucinogens play into going through our doors of perception and seeing the truth in our lives and the world.
