This is really fascinating. I'm about 2/3 of the way through, the bit about the two-headed flat worms that can be cut into several pieces and regenerate as two-headed is really catching my interest. The overall idea of what's being presented here - cell differentiation is guided by the kind of bioel...

Jamie Wheal has been sharing a lot of his trepidation around the psychedelic renaissance and in particular his concern not only of Prozac Nation 2.0 but that the big companies, such as Compass Pathways (which Tim Ferris called out recently) will not only medicalize it but that there will be moves to...

Wow, to say I'm out of my league would go beyond an understatement. I didn't start until I was 37 so I'd say if you're already learning languages and if we were comparing age-per-age you're a good 20+ years ahead of me. The thing you find about the work world though is it's 'sink or swim' in a lot ...

I just took a listen to this to see what kind of depth-of-field it would give on the genre. He pretty much tells the story the way it landed for me, and I really started getting into it right around the time he was describing as the 'nether zone' and I think for me it was partly that there was a lot...

Samo's a pretty profound thinker and I'm glad to see when he has no interviews. Despite the spicy title he's not a reactionary, rather he's trying to evaluate the societal systems that keep society from collapsing, doing forensics on societies that have collapsed, seeing when needed changes can't br...

I'm pretty sure this will get a lot worse before it gets better. We're headed for increasing market failure as everything gets virtualized and automated and we have no road map on how to shift from a 'work to live' economy to something else or even how we'd keep that afloat. It's worth noting that t...

When it's an economic war of all against all you'll then see natural antipathies heightened rather than decreased, and TBH at present it seems like were doing unusually well at keeping the veneer of civility, even with as much economic damage and uncertainty as Covid has given us. I have read that ...

Another weird question hit me.

If Caitlyn dressed up as Bruce and Ru Paul ran against her could you call that a drag-race?

(context - if someone like Blaire White ran as a Republican for congress somewhere I wouldn't think twice, but we're talking Kardashians here...)

Trump clearly helped the Republicans catch up to the Democrats on fragmentation.

Larry Flint was never an Olympic runner, both Usain Bolt and (then) Bruce Jenner were/are.


Larry Flint was in a wheelchair because a right-wing terrorist shot him.

TY. Orthogonal but fair.
