#151 How to Think, not What to Think (Bret Weinstein & Heather Heying DarkHorse Livestream)
Manage episode 348121851 series 2524025
In this 151st in a series of live discussions with Bret Weinstein and Heather Heying (both PhDs in Biology), we discuss the state of the world through an evolutionary lens.
This week, we discuss the difference between people who crashed and burned in the last few years, and those who remain standing. What was your position on SARS-CoV2 origins, vaccines, early treatment, masks, when those topics first came to your consciousness? Have your positions moved? Has your model of the world become better over time, or has it remained static? Static models of the world are doomed to failure, even when held by those with some heterodox beliefs. Also: what does wordle have to do with any of this? And is Elon Musk really opening the gates of hell? Finally, how to eat pears.
