Yeah, no one can tell that megalomaniac that we're not ants and that he's just flesh and blood. Not our chosen savior. Our elite self-appointed gods have gone insane

    So right, if we want to advance humankind, the one thing that Mike here never mentioned is to use reasoning, to convince yourself _you're wrong._ Now this is a big idea with possibly a lot of detractors, so below is my reasoning behind that; A more pessimistic attitude where one assume everything they think is wrong compels as much, if not more research from oneself than trying to find reasons they're right. If you automatically assume what you believe is wrong, you then can research to confirm these findings, and on occasion, be pleasantly surprised when you find that you were not wrong, you only reached a conclusion that may not necessarily be popular, but is proven with factual evidence based on intuition, confirmed through research. To always assume you are right is to set yourself up for falling on your own petard. To assume you are wrong affords the opportunity to not skewer and roast oneself inadvertently, and instead observe from the perspective of detractors who themselves may be correct _in one aspect_ while foregoing everything else, which disallows others from reaching the same inference-based conclusions you might reach by accepting the _possibility_ of truth others elect to avoid. To keep an open mind, but to always assume everything your mind creates as incorrect is one of a few ways to keep yourself in check, and to test your own ideas against that of the zeitgeist juxtaposed against historical reference to reach a conclusion based solely on facts and evidence. In a sense, some worldly judicial systems - should it function as they was originally designed - follows this idea: Innocence before guilt affords the opportunity to be wrong, and release those who through evidence were proven to be correct in their assertion that no crime had been performed by them.

    I have a question: if one attempt to elevate our reasoning is open debate and maybe even choosing people at random to make our decisions, where does that leave experts that studied specific subjects and objectively know much more about some things than we do? Should their opinion be treated as every other's is or should they have a privilege when talking about certain subjects?

    Great video! I have to rewatch it for a few times to understand it, but it is worth it. It also relates to the problem of the social media that I only receive information from one perspective. And the other perspective seems to be disappearing from the feed. It is like getting fed by a lone reasoner. But in reality I will inevitably face people with different opinions. The lesson I learn today is to respect all opinions and not only praises.

    Very very interesting. I've been kind of lost with the new digital age, and the way I feel we are no longer able to actually debate and civilly discuss the vast differences and backgrounds in our opinions. It's left me wondering how to determine what's true when I feel that everyone is just out to confirm their own biases. I don't blame people necessarily, but it's so hard to know what to do with so many voices and so much information available in this day and age, and people are VERY passionate about what they think they know.

    I like you! But you got trapped, trapped in the CO2 lie. It is the sun wich regulates earths climate, nothing else. The sun is regulated by even bigger things (intergalactic current sheet), they are cycles, longer and shorter ones, more or less affecting what we do. The modern basic thought that humans would be in the center of all happenings wich is wrong. It got dogmatically hammered into our heads in schools, kindergardens, churches, science. "We are the Crown of Creation" What?! If you compare the size of our planet, the size of our star (sun) to other planetary systems you'll find out rather quickly that we are really small. By "we" I mean our whole solarsystem. If you want to find out why Einstein, Greene and a bunch of others are wrong and what is mind-blowingly simple to understand and visibly obvious, you have to explore the Electric Universe, thunderbolt project. It will test your open mindedness and quite likely you will see the world with very different eyes afterwards. Be brave and let your mind blow up!

That's us today. We are still a work in progress.
