Good job Michael. This truly is the future of Reasoning. Thank you for bringing the masses along. People are complacent and need a shake up in what they think reasoning is, how it's done, how reliable they think their own reasoning and worldview is (clearly not reliable at all, but all people, including those claiming to be reasonable, rational and scientific, are genuinely pained to admit this currently and that needs to change), and how we are going to take this forward in the next 50 years.

And rely on media figure heads to justify our own inaction. Why do we all have "jokes" that we know in the back of our minds are true but feel too powerless to stand against it

That means reasoning can be improved if we combined consciousness of different individuals in a virtual system ? The combined entity will have a more accurate reason as it is a mixture of perspectives ! The conclusion thus resulting to stronger reasoning.

Climate change is quite common with the current corona virus. Altough there's a lot of warnings, we people tend to talk things down until it's too late. People adopted too much to the current state of living and they also enjoy it too much so they don't feel the urge to change anything, and sadly this affects too many people so nothing will change until it's too late.

Ignoring climate change is like ignoring covid and continuing spreading. Humans are stupid enough to ignore it. It's simply a matter of intellect to remain existent or going extinct. We aren't smart.

It appears to me that we have used our intelligence to the point where fewer and fewer people can learn enough about any subject to be able to explain it to the rest of us, leading all of us to a position of being too big for our britches and being caught with our pants down, Mother Nature will bite us in the ass, leaving us to start all over again in the stone age.

I find it fascinating how Michael is always trying to show the viewer these concepts and explore these ideas but most of the viewers can't really comprehend the information like Michael does. Sure the viewer can acknowledge the information's presence but can't comprehend it. I will love the day Michael uploads a indepth video about mental filters and how many humans are somewhat incapable of comprehending information due to mental filters. Hopefully Michael is able to comprehend mental filters like how I like to see them

GOD IS AWESOME. HE made everything and science strives to discover and explain creation. Satan is real and so is sin. GOD has gifted us with choice. Therefore HE created reason and intuition and every scientific definition of brain function man can come up with. Man's greatest confusion is focusing on creation and the worship of creation rather than focusing on and worshipping GOD. GOD OF ALL CREATION. Blessings ☀️

Hey Michael, I've never commented on one of your videos before but I'd like to take the time out to say that this was such a treat to watch. I've watched a couple of your video since a friend first recommended this channel to me but I found this to be one of your best videos to date, as it spoke to me on a personal level. I've been thinking a lot about the higher level concepts that you brought up in this video and I'm so glad to see them presented in such a beautiful way in this video. I've been impacted by this video so much that I'd think I would recommend it to everyone if this video comes to mind as I go about with the conversation. Kudos once again and looking forward to more content from this channel!

If anyone's wondering, the thing he's talking about at the end of the video (and alluding to throughout) is called a Citizens Assembly. Where a random selection of people are chosen to deliberate on issues, and choose a way forward rather than leaving it up to the single person at the head of state. It's funny this video is coming out now, since just a few weeks ago in the most recent London mayoral election someone ran with the view of abolishing the position of London Mayor and instituting Citizen's Assemblies instead. That's how I came to know about it

Hey Michael, Gabe here. I doubt you’ll ever see this but figured put it out there. I was wondering if you’ve ever looked into the idea/ reality of Cognitive loops? I find it an interesting and underrated topic that if made more aware could help a lot of people. 4 years ago on a psychedelic experience I had thoughts about the subject and it kinda stuck with me to date. Anywho just figured I’d propose the idea to ya or anyone who seems interested.
