Re: John: Who the HECK is going to be watching us on Christmas Eve?

The rafters were filled... All the viewers were there.
And you thought the holiday meant we didn't care.

From out of the crowd there arose such a hue
That Mr. Wright knew just what he must do.

Sleep and Depression

Very interesting diavlog. Defintely going to check out Whitaker's book, John.

One question (maybe Ocean has some insight here): What is the status of research on the link between sleep and...

Re: Sleep talking ghost in the machine

The same thing has happened to me, only I was working the overnight shift at a crisis hotline where you were allowed to sleep, provided you woke up and took the calls when/if they came in. I'd wake...

Fascinating topic...

... especially as it relates to things like depression. Based on self-observation, I have at times lessened the amount of sleep I'm getting, in order to move away from a depressed or apathetic state....

From the 'Experiment of One' Files...

Gary's comment on orange juice in the morning reminded me of something from my (pre-RedBull) college days... When I needed to get through a 10 or 12 hour event, I'd mix orange juice and Coke, and it...

Re: Dickinson quote

Just to be clear - the phrase itself predates ED by at least about 100 years. (It is attributed also to Chamfort, circa 1700s.) Her "mostly introverted and reclusive life" and desire for privacy...

Question for Carlo

I'm only about 20 minutes into this one, but I'm already wondering, Carlo, what you think about gender differences in existential angst... Do they exist, and what are the qualitative differences?

Re: Verbal Overshadowing

[DISCLAIMER: I haven't really looked at the literature in 10 years.]

Verbal overshadowing (VO) came to my attention in the context of eyewitness memory. VO refers to...

Re: Science Saturday: Complexity All the Way Down (John Horgan & George Johnson)

Yep.



Interesting. I'll have to think about that.

Two other things that came to mind...
1) The literature on verbal-overshadowing. (No particular point to make - just wondering if you...

Re: Science Saturday: Complexity All the Way Down (John Horgan & George Johnson)

(Nice story.) What I'm referring to would be Roy's own inability to access the 'real more complex story' after he's told it. It's like it's actually lost to him.

For whatever it's worth, I've only...

Re: Science Saturday: Complexity All the Way Down (John Horgan & George Johnson)

So stipulated.



Yes, I'm aware that memory changes over time, and with repeated query and retelling. (I did my doctoral work on eyewitness memory - notoriously faulty.) However, I don't think...

Re: Science Saturday: Complexity All the Way Down (John Horgan & George Johnson)

I understand what you are saying. What I question is why the telling of the story should affect the subjective experience of remembering it so much? Why should it (the experience of remembering) be...

Re: the Internet

(chortle) I think John just inadvertently validated my decision to take an 8-week break from the internet, starting yesterday. I should probably quit watching this now... ;)

Outsider Science

Margaret's new/forthcoming book sounds very interesting. I hope one of you (George or John) will have her on to discuss it when it comes out.

Re: Science Saturday: The Great Singularity Debate

Umm... I'm about 35 minutes into this and it appears to have degenerated into a discussion of definitions that should have been a precursor to the two parties having this conversation.

Re: Science Saturday: What's Wrong With Transhumanism?

That was... meaty. Definitely a pairing I would like to see again.

I think my feelings about transhumanism line up pretty closely with Massimo's. I'd like to see transhumanism focus more on a...
