A LIVE TALK WITH POP PHILOSOPHY FUTURIST JASON SILVA
BLISS WONDER and AWE
The climax from pop- philosophy futurist @jasonsilva 's " Bliss, Wonder and Awe" live talk last night was when he " ecstatically" quoted Flaubert : “ Human speech is like a cracked kettle on which we tap crude rhythms for bears to dance to, while we long to make music that will melt the stars.” Making a point that philosophy is his cognitive turn-on, ( and maybe hearing himself talk too), the question we are left with is what's ours?
Listening to him is fun and yet pretty exhausting. Is he charming, passionate about the world, cool and contemporary, yes. Could he turn it down a notch with the continuous quote ranting on abstract pseudo science commentaries, maybe.
He touched on humans as insatiable wanting beings and how scientific and technological development is happening too fast to comprehend in a holistic way, but this interaction with our world is changing even faster than the speed of his voice when he speaks (absolutely not kidding).
I was hoping he would go into more depth on the subject of FLOW but was still delighted to have some of his ideas contagiously reinforced in terms of being curious about the world, and turning passion to purpose.
Big thanks to I AM GENIE productions.
