the search engine optimization the jailer's content to a personal life. modifying our behavior patterns but in a world where citizens have been replaced by consumers monitored and fed content information to justify old patterns are left to wonder is our reality like the internet a construct of our own creation. one hundred fifty three it looks like i feel that it's good. for the bottom fifty. i like what they like you know i got it we. could. live with it. there's a phrase that's been part of our culture for
12:31 pm
a few hundred years really but it was the beginning of the enlightenment so-called but they cart saying i think therefore i am and i tend to actually challenge that and say i am therefore i think i think therefore i am is of the indirect to really of trying to know who you are before thought it because you exist i am the put chopra's a provision of the identity. sean still is a provision of identity because it's me changing since you were an embryo or as i go from birth to death you engaged with a process that we call body mind which is experiencing another process that we call work. that's that's the conditioning of. because i am is just existence exists that's all it means without trying to figure out what it's.
12:32 pm
so there are a couple of things we can be sure one of this. is existence look around things exist you can also say i just and i exist and this existence go together. because if i didn't exist i wouldn't have this experience so now we get into huge insurance what is mine what is body what is the us. and how do we know. that these descriptions we have what my body universe are actually the real thing so what is reality reality is a species specific knowing and experience what you and i have is a human experience in human consciousness and that experience is basically. sounds shapes colors forms sensations
12:33 pm
perceptions images the rest is a story for thirty thousand years of forty thousand c.d.'s the stories have been mythology bust stories religion second. the third. the last the fourth and no sides they're all stories at a basically the interpretation of experience. the human story a hundred years ago was that most people lived on farms never traveled more than a hundred miles from home and likely never receive news from far off countries. how do we compare that consciousness to that of modern man crammed into overpopulated
12:34 pm
city like it on social media with strangers from all over the globe receiving hourly news updates the thank dr says to more books our media nuclear process in life. we are all of us already are cyborgs so you have a machine extension of yourself in the form of your phone and your computer and all your application you are already super human. if you have internet link. you have that article of wisdom you can mitigate to millions of people are going to get arrested or instantly i mean these are magical powers. that didn't exist not that long ago so everyone is already super human we're living in a scientific age but actually the world looks increasingly magical in the sense that we are communicating with people across the planet that we never have seen in real life we are understood basically the spell or the the casting the illusions of
12:35 pm
various news corporations and media conglomerates that you know people that we've never met with interacted with are basically helping to program everything from our lifestyle choices on instagram to our political thoughts and ideas very much self everything is about suggestion when we look at the media we look at advertising we look at almost everything that we do the power of suggestion is what is happening rarely do we have a direct encounter with something but there's always an allusion to it so when we. i have this capturing of the imagination which is what a hypnotic induction involves the capturing of the imagination and directing it in some way we go with that flow and we are bombarded all the time by images and ideas and suggestions more so than ever before it's almost impossible to escape between the pings that come on your cellphone to the images that pop up in the corner of your eye soon as you go on to your internet browser everything is saying to you on
12:36 pm
some level look at me give me attention give me your life force your energy in some manner smart devices are sort of tell up at the wood training wheels you know it's a way of us to be connected together and i think the larger the larger issue there the larger story telling point is that it's activating the hive mind meaning the group mind of the planet or what you know joseph campbell called the global human and i really much believe in the evolution of the global human and so that the choice point is are we going to activate that group mind that hive mind from you know the reptilian brain stem theater of the human mass or are we going to actually allow that to be activated from as abraham lincoln said the better angels of our nature and i believe that you know that augment and intelligence extended intelligence and all these transhuman amalgams that are happening could need to reflect the better angels of our nature and make us become more evolved outside of
12:37 pm
the primal reality of being an animal conscious evolution means that the whole evolutionary process of creation from the origin of you know the single cells of the animals to humans now to us we are the first generation to be conscious. whole process of evolution. and secondly are you conscious are expressions of evolution becoming conscious. and third that we have noticed the direction of evolution for billions of years single cell multi tail animal human more complexity more freedom more complex more consciousness there around physicist stephen hawking known for his optimism recently published his brief answers to the big question noted in a way the human race needs to improve its mention of the physical qualities if it
12:38 pm
is to deal with the increasingly complex world around it and meet new challenges like space travel and it also needs to increase its complexity if biological systems are to keep ahead of the tronic ones at the moment computers have the advantage of speed but they have shown no sign of intelligence. or the rapid pace of improvement will probably continue until computers have a similar complexity to the human brain. the brain and i'm holding a plastic model of one might and is a three pound computer made of meat it's got about one hundred billion neurons in it each one on average is connected to about ten thousand other neurons so that's roughly the number of stars that there are in the milky way galaxy it works through electricity electricity as a result of ionic channels things like salt but it's slow the processing in the brain and neural tissue signals is only about two hundred miles per hour that's not particularly fast and so when we go to a chip the speed on the chip is order of magnitude greater than that transhumanism
12:39 pm
is a philosophical belief that mankind will continue to incorporate technology into its intelligence and physiology far beyond girl imitation the good taste is one about which i will go back to constrain to clean out. our input is much better but our output is true and we are going to be generous you could say maybe it's a few hundred votes or second order. or something like that. you know the way we. moved very slowly. computer which of the terrible. very big differences stephen hawking was one believes the future of communication is brain computer interfaces there are two wigs electrodes on the brain and implants if we can connect the human brain to the internet we will have all of wiki pedia
12:40 pm
because it's resource but do you think it's inevitable that we're going to see basically a merging of men with machine that we're basically going to have to. figure out basically how the brain functions to a place where we can just download intelligence data into a machines that we can prolong our life or expand our memory or do you think that there is actually a potential future where we we have machines augmenting our our technology we actually don't merge machinery you know with nanotech and other things into us i think that we're going to emerge because i think it's a natural aspect of human evolution it's just like saying we you know we were able to grow cotton. and then we're going to wear clothes or just look at them outside of ourselves clothing fashion and all these things to become parts of our identity as human beings both individually and as a group so this is a much much more profound nate aspect of evolution through the expansion of
12:41 pm
a technology but there's no way that it's going to stay outside of us it's going to be integrated inside of us and that's why the stakes are high. so you will be in the. u.s. does. it with the people most of congress are not all what i mean.
12:42 pm
you know they are local if you commute from him he can see as you know he did but if. you're in the home of the media. i'm with you most of the very one with a number on most of them even when he was up in the phone while he mostly was at defense. back the other financial final gaffe today was all about money laundering first to visit this gas into three different. good is a good start while we have our three banks all set up here maybe something in europe something in america something overstays in the cayman islands and it will
12:43 pm
all these banks are complicit in or at the progress you just have to give with all that say they managed to do some serious money laundering ok let's see how we did while we've got a nice not bring vice versa max and for stacy old beautiful jewelry and have. like the automobile again from that you know money laundering highly a typical it wasn't as good. i don't know.
12:44 pm
if. they are groups that they can actually somewhat detect what you are thinking. you're thinking out there sure i think that you know certain patterns by putting electrodes not into the brain just outside the recording of you know their physiological recording so right now we're actually controlling the motor function with the brain there's a project called the brain computer interface you can actually put a electrode in that the brain of m p t s and connect that to the robotic arm so basically when they think they want to move their fingers this robot moves so they're now we have actually decoded those signals that can be translated to
12:45 pm
function so that field is developing is such that. now in technology is being used in air force to control the airplane with your thought right because they either reduce it to timing it that you have to react with muscles so keeping to this notion of it's really how you. approach your brain how you basically are actively engaging with it which really. takes me more to the idea of the power of the mind that basically there's something that has to do with. will and choice and decision making it's not just predictable programatic is that something that we're finding more and more through brain mapping in neuro science is that expectations that basically you could control behavior a control patterns and basically control the individual by mapping the brain is not as simple as what was once thought experiences that you have emotionally and change
12:46 pm
your brain actually does is there's no plasticity correct neural plasticity and we're all made of. you know kind of chemical reactions right so i'm brain be the most reactive part of the body and any imbalance in chemical in the brain can change the behavior of the patient i do a lot of patience with a response of nearest stimulation which is like a pacemaker for the brain that's placed inside the brain i think it's very interesting. when you stimulate certain areas of the brain you can the elicit emotions you can elicits fear there are areas in the brain that if you stimulate. you can almost solicit like a feeling of bliss. for short time. and that is something amazing
12:47 pm
but here's the great mystery you know if you if you take the probe and use sort of stimulated the brain actually you will have certain experiences you will see images you might recall the story you may recall a song that you're hearing. and that's an argument the brain produces the experience i can give you the same experience if you're reading shakespeare. in a book. you can conjure up the world of shakespeare. all that's in the book is squiggles symbols that correspond to one struts we agreed to but when you read a novel you read a book you hear a song on the cd or you see it. suddenly stances because symbolic representations of experience in the region of the.
12:48 pm
dr chipper is indicating is a reciprocal nature of the mind in the brain we can physically pry the brain or chemically alter it with drugs our understanding of neural plasticity informs us we can alter neural pathways and chemical tendencies within the brain based on our activities including meditation studies in trauma are demonstrating that the power of the mind can alter the brain using virtual reality the concept is that you basically create the context this best as possible from the memory of the soldier and basically recreate the event by recreating the events over and over you're actually. releasing the energy that typically with people with p.t.s.d. when they're confronted with trigger stimuli in the real world seeing trash post so the road which brings back the memory of when i. wrote so there's an activation in
12:49 pm
the brain that causes this hyper hyper road sort of thing you know somebody called startle response or you know it's like if you go up to a veteran put your arm on her back from behind you see him jump over her skid and that to me as a starting brain behavior relationships really shows how the brain can be tuned by just one big of that have a lifelong impact. and you typically see an over activation of the a big boost in the fight or flight area of the brain and since we're there you know it's a survival mechanism so that you know there is a real threat you're ready ready to go in the whole sort of bodily you know function exchange to prepared to deal with the threat so this simulation behind me is one of fourteen make up the brute system that we've successfully used for treating p.t.s.d. but hope for the patient to go back to the scene of the crime in a certain place there in the therapy office to go back to talk about what they went
12:50 pm
through and do this repeatedly under the guidance of a well trained clinician and by this process of confrontation and processing over time you start to see the activating affects in the brain start to diminish from cold suggesting should and then one study with p.t.s.d. treatment or it was shown that at the end if you measure someone before and after treatment you see the loss activation and they make the you also see the proper change as you would expect and from a low function well to me i've always noticed that there's sort of an electrical charge an energetic charge to memory some memories are very charged that's why we tend to be more reactive when we think of it right this is a real charge and then sometimes you can actually quell the charge you can look less of it until it gets the place where it disappears when that's not as though charging that's when you forget about it. short term potentiation is a short term memory. as some electricity comes and goes in just that so long term
12:51 pm
you basically you you built if the memories very strong then all of a sudden you build. a genetic components to why that's that particularly experience but i mean genetic want to meaning that you know you need to really be becoming grain in the genome. ok so when a cell is regenerating passing. memory to the next one so now we see the memory is this tribute. to out the structures which is cordon aided by. up accomplice so i think. again our understanding of memories developing because our understanding off cell of our memory is developing. all of our organs are formed from cells which are in turn controlled by our d.n.a. which stores our genetic blueprint including at least some of our ancestral
12:52 pm
memories a little wonder then stephen hawking says there's been relatively little change in human d.n.a. in the last ten thousand years but it is likely that we'll be able to redesign it completely in the next thousand. well of course there's a lot of danger in there about trauma evolutionary point of view need share has been editing the genetic code or billions of years and it's been pretty worthless which is to say they've been five mass extinctions before we got here nature does not preserve species nature preserves purpose so what i think is really considered here i think it's natural that we will be able to improve our genetic code there is no indication that our genetic code is totally perfect in all its name and could not be improved so i think we'll do that as our bodies are formed by our cells which are the progeny of originator cells known as stem cells
12:53 pm
these stem cells are now being studied and used to regenerate organs and tissues the can only be imagined editing of stem cells you know it's really lead to the redesigning of the human body our bodies are stem cells all three of them so we have it in our bone marrow we have a fat. your liver cut off part of your liver and will regenerate. just. only we found out that their stem cells in your brain literally every your teeth every little part of your body has stem cells in it and basically as you age over time these stem cells are what replace damaged parts so if you have a building and you know plumbing is better electrical it's bad it's colic the repairman that comes along and you know does it everything so the more stem cells that you have the more repair you can do basically recreating the original structure but then we can get into things and what if i want to function differently so what if what if i like your brain cells or somebody else's you know
12:54 pm
michael jordan's hamstring cells or his you know me karl if you only get start getting until they design or stem cell cocktails and the like going to your local smoothie shop and say you know those fruits in the next small together but the problem is that it seems to me that is the stem cell of of them but einstein is not going to make you einstein because even though that's themselves works in the context of all the billions of connections absolutely but if all vines science connections are paved in gold and that's what allowed his connections so you know flow better than shoot started paving some of mine in gold so you know maybe my connections will start flowing better stephen hawking pointed out the best intention of genetic manipulation is that modifying genes would allow scientists to treat genetic causes of disease by correcting gene mutation. there are however less noble possibilities for manipulating d.n.a. one negative effect of gene in the crops has been the reduction in seed strains not
12:55 pm
bailable to us compared to one hundred years ago we should fear such loss of power diversity plants animal and human life if gene modification goes unchecked. it is for this reason that stephen hawking notes intelligence is the ability to adapt to change we must not fear change we need to make it work to our advantage so the thing here is that we have a sense. direction of civilization. inclusiveness of everybody's genius being important and we have to just increase that as we gain the powers that we used to attribute either to accident or to god's. knowledge of the genome is reminiscent of the apple offered to adam many by the serpent for other than that if human future is the most natural evolution of all technology is an essential tool in mankind story but it is up to us to decide how you'll continue to
12:56 pm
assimilate it. that decision will affect not only our body but our universe as well. as the human universe recreated money for example. religion god and god as we usually describe god is another contra. everything that you can name is. creation no you'd say this is both advance or creation this is board to construct the new creation but we don't understand this is a construct of creation galaxies or plans for creation. is a construct of whose your consciousness that i am is tied to the universal consciousness that you tap into that every other there is only in the verses consciousness if we'd really get this then we would be. one day challenge darwinian . evolution because darwinian evolution says random mutations and natural
12:57 pm
selection. i through would replace the unpredictable nutrition. and natural selection this means. so if i go to grand central station everybody is seemingly randomly going. but they know where they are going this one is the. this one is going to bust and this one is going. and you know if in fact i watch them every day i would be able to plot to go off and create a business to say this is how this works.
12:58 pm
hello my name's peter and i've been living in bush for about seven years and this is a film about just some of the crazy things i've got in the time. i get up. i mean does it just published or do it if i'm just if i had such a guy that i still does not shift because i was. i passed. through. because. i've been saying the numbers mean something they matter to us as over twenty
12:59 pm
trillion dollars in debt more than ten white collar crimes happen each day. eighty five percent of global wealth he longs to be ultra rich eight point six percent market saw thirty percent from last year some with four hundred to five hundred trees per second per second and bitcoin rose to twenty thousand dollars. china's building two point one bill. ai industrial park but don't let the numbers overwhelm . the only number you need to remember is one just shows you know for two minutes the one and only film but.
1:00 pm
not really. the death toll from think collapse in the russian city of miami to rises to twenty eighth with thirteen others still missing also took up. all necessary means and no promise to renounce the use of force to warnings from china's president as the war of words with taiwan escalates. in the next few weeks and peace will have an important decision today. is paul that backs the deal britain to. the dish promise the trees are made their appeals for support.
