Separateness, Technology, and Overcoming the Digital Divide
Marko Vasiljevic joins The Immersioneer Project for a deep dive into the current technological landscape, future possibilities, and how we can keep our sanity (and find purpose) amidst the acceleration of our modern time. Hint: It's more than just putting our phones down. ---- SHOW NOTES: CH intro till 7:30, interview starts after that Genetic Engineering The Shadow of You / Passing data through time Genes / Reproduction as Data Transfer Finding your path through curiousity Curiosity's role in human consumption The trap(pings) of novelty Note from Clancey: Around the 33 minute mark, I meant to make the point re: expertise that there is a "gap in authority" in our current culture with the backlash against academics and dismissal of a lot of new forms of self-expression from the "non-experts". Bungled it, but hopefully that makes sense. Consumer culture as Stimulation Machine Advertisers know best how to entice and play on human psychology Consumerism rooted in selling incompletion Disappointment vs Sadness Negative Zero Feedback loops Being with the "feeling" to uncover the hidden lesson on demand culture forcing us to ask “why are we incomplete?” What is “Chance"? Conditioning vs Essence Subatomic Level = Rules of Reality Change Law of Causality / Chance "Negative Zero" The Evolution of consciousness with and into technology (i.e planes of existence, offloading consciousness) Technology’s effect on human psychology The Singularity as Unity Consciousness (technologically accelerated) ---- Quotables: "We want now. Forever." -Marko Vasiljevic "Moderation is hard. Extreme is easy." -Marko Vasiljevic ---- ABOUT THE GUEST Marko Vasiljevic Marko is an engineer and entrepreneur.

Whether we’re turning to mindfulness, meditation, or mind-expanding substances, our exploration of inner space is advancing rapidly and bringing with it profound questions about the nature of human identity and modern society. Blending insights from psychology, philosophy, science, and spirituality, The Immersioneer Project seeks to supercharge this exploration, hone our shared understanding of inner space, and deepen human dialogue in the process. Basically, it’s as far from filtered selfies and fake news as you can get.
