    143: Can Google and Twitter Be Used For Good? w/ Stewart Alsop

    09/10/2019 Duration: 59min

    Chad and Stewart Alsop (from the Crazy Wisdom podcast) talk about the usefulness, the limits, and the dangers of technology tools like Google and Twitter. Does increasing our fluency with abstract concepts expand the breadth of our Google searches? Can we use Twitter as a learning tool rather than a toy for social validation? How do we cultivate nuance when the algorithms are optimized for spectacle? Do we have a social responsibility to contribute to the algorithms? How do outsiders contribute to society? Are technologists hacking the use of meditation and psychedelics while missing their numinous purposes? What role does our awareness of the observing self play in dealing with the passive nature of suggested content and ranked searches? Are we entering a time of conflict? Can we learn to think like viruses? Should technology be mimicking nature? How does comfort with nuance prepare us to deal with the conflicted nature of being human?

    Chad and Tom talk about connecting thoughts and why so often it feels as if there is something holding us back from deep thought. When considering the things we enjoy, it often feels as if others are able to craft intelligent ideas into fascinating writing and art while we feel that our thoughts are just out of grasp. Chad sets out a plan to strengthen his cognition through tools like walking, journaling, daydreaming, and scrap paper.
