I’m very, very, very careful with my words…
I think we have created tools that are ripping apart the social fabric of how society works. The short-term, dopamine-driven feedback loops we’ve created are destroying how society works. No civil discourse, no cooperation; misinformation, mistruth. You are being programmed
Love this kid. Love this series.
It’ll blow your mind. Mr Robot. And it’s got Christian Slater from Broken Arrow… many a happy childhood memory there.
Everybody thinks they have to build fucking Uber. Recalibrate what success looks like. Vaynerchuk is marmite, sometimes I love him, sometimes I don’t… this however is good. Worth a watch.
I’d consider myself a realist, alright? But in philosophical terms I’m what’s called a pessimist.
I think human consciousness is a tragic misstep in evolution. We became too self-aware. Nature created an aspect of nature separate from itself. We are creatures that should not exist by natural law.
We are things that labor under the illusion of having a self, that accretion of sensory experience and feelings, programmed with total assurance that we are each somebody, when in fact everbody’s nobody.
I think the honorable thing for our species to do is to deny our programming. Stop reproducing. Walk hand in hand into extinction. One last midnight, brothers and sisters opting out of a raw deal.
Cohle preaches atheistic nihilism like a high priest of downerism.
