    I actually love and find it great you talking about all of this. I am always so eager to get to everyone the understanding of this kind of stuff. How to see this point of view for a conscious and better way for everyone. I love that in this one video you could explain lots of things with great information and reach a lot of people who will find it easy to unravel and be smarter. I was surprised you talked about decentralized decision-making in society and else. I was going around this idea for a while as a future way of really getting somewhere with a natural and better way for everyone. I think this would be a before and after for humanity. As probably someone said: the mind grows faster than evolution, and so ideas grow faster than acceptance (or behavioral inertia).

    The Guardian article : Want to fight climate change? Have fewer children "These reduce emissions many times more than common green ... Having one fewer child will save 58.6 tonnes of CO2-equivalent per year " No other "green" measure even comes close to the above. Less resources needed, less high CO2 concrete buildings built, less cars built. But some people want you to birth and raise more consumers who buy their mostly unnecessary things ;-) Reason 101

    Just transferred to a college as a sustainable design major this semester. The info I've gathered inside and outside of classes this semester has been a total mindfuxk my initial thought going into it was "I'm going to help future generations" but now I realize shit is going tf down in my lifetime and no one has come up with a practical way of averting total disaster. Good luck everyone hopefully we got this, if not some percentage of us will surely survive and carry on the legacy of humanity and learn from our mistakes.

    Climate change is absolutely not the main problem being caused by failures of reason right now. The reason climate change doesn't get fixed isn't because people haven't reasoned it out; it's because everyone wants to keep on doing what they're doing. While also growing the population and the GDP and the annual deficit.

    One of the best videos ever. We need to evolve so that we can talk to our other brain so that we can understand other points of view better because left brained And right brained people think differently. So if everyone was both we could reason better towards the future. See CGP grey video on you is two. And the research that conservative or progressive is some what genetic. Understand that compensate for it. Everyone needs to understand they are wrong about some things and they don't know which ones

    “We” can’t choose what that will mean until we’re there to interpret or influence the understanding of what it means to be us. Until that point the understandings will largely be taken from those with the longest lasting/loudest voices. As the saying goes: “history is written by the winners” and currently the collective majority, probably >95% of the world’s population will not fit into this category and our collective voices are much more likely to go unnoticed or be mere footnotes.

    Logic test: There is no way to determine if she is married, for it only states the marital status of the two men. Thus not enough information to decide, for an "IF" does not equal a definitive YES. Peter, the only known unmarried person, is not looking at anyone, but only being looked AT by the unknown. Married is looking at unknown. Unknown is looking at unmarried. In no way can you empirically the that unknown is known just because of potentialities. Failed the logic test, much disappoint.

    Drawing reasons from conclusions is called "rationalizing". We can gain control of our reasoning by avoiding rationalization. However, this happens to be what evolutionists like v sauce do when they try to reason out why we are able to reason. They conclude that "we evolved, therefore, here is the reason." Yet, their conclusion and the subsequent rationalization is fundamentally flawed for the massive gap in proof and knowledge. We also reason better when we question our own perceptions, as well as trust our memories when we are being gaslighted. It is only when we don't trust our memories that those memories may be edited by external input because we assume that input to be true over our own memories. The right-wing presidential candidate in the U.S., and both sides of political media, manipulated memories of weak-minded people who do not trust their own memories, prefer to select memories that suit their worldview (denial) or leave their memories and/or thinking up to politicians. That is why the world of mankind is circling the drain right now.

      @William I accuse only the guilty. I did say both sides of political media. There are plenty of things left-wing media falsely accused the right-wing candidate of doing through carefully editting videos. But only one of the candidates did any gaslighting. The narcissistic one. Because that is what narcissists do. For the record, I vote for God's kingdom by putting faith in Jesus, not for some man in a political election. Daniel 2:44 says that all mankind's kingdoms will be destroyed, even the States. However, as long as these kingdoms remain, I will be obedient to their laws and pay their taxes. But I await a kingdom not made with hands that will stand forever and a king whom God has chosen as the only king of his kingdom and he is coming, and he will hand it over to his Father, the only true God, Jehovah. Those who remain will only be those righteous who are loyal to him and they will have delight in the abundance of peace.

    Evolution? Amazing how a 150-year-old broken theory is still believed after DNA scientists destroyed it. "To Darwin, the cell was a "black box" and its inner workings were utterly mysterious to him. Now, the black box has been opened up and we know how it works, Applying Darwin's test to the ultra-complex world of molecular machinery and cellular systems that have been discovered over the past 40 years, we can say that Darwin's theory has absolutely broken down." - Michael Behe “Life did not evolve first on Earth. The immensity of complex coded and precisely sequenced information is absolutely staggering. The DNA evidence speaks of intelligent, information-bearing design. Complex DNA coding would have been necessary for even the hypothetical first so-called “simple cell(s)”. For life to form by chance is mathematically virtually impossible.” - Sir Francis Crick (Nobel Prize for physiology/medicine) "Mathematicians agree that any requisite number beyond 10*50th has, statistically, a zero probability of occurrence (and even that gives it the benefit of the doubt!). Any species known to us, including the smallest single-cell bacteria, have enormously larger number of nucleotides than 100 or 1000. In fact, single cell bacteria display about 3,000,000 nucleotides, aligned in a very specific sequence. This means that there is no mathematical probability whatever for any known species to have been the product of a random occurrence-random mutations (to use the evolutionist's favorite expression)." - I.L. Cohen "To put it at its mildest, one may question an evolutionary theory so beset by doubts among even those who teach it. If Darwinism is truly the great unifying principle of biology, it encompasses extraordinarily large areas of ignorance. It fails to explain some of the most basic questions of all: how lifeless chemicals came alive, what rules of grammar lie behind the genetic code, how genes shape the form of living things." - Francis Hitching See Less

    If nobody remembers or observes a particular thing or place, and it is later rediscovered, was it always in the same place? For instance, if I set a glass of water down, and nobody truly observed it in that moment, can it be in a location different than its original position when first observed? This may be a strange or dumb question but I am interested to know the answer. I suppose some of it would come down to probability curves

    Someone asked me to watch this and give me their thoughts. As I watched this video, I took notes on it. I was more interested in parts where I disagreed with Vsauce, so that is what I chose to focus on. I figured I would post them here just to see what happens. . . in the spirit of the video's argument. Vsauce video notes; 9:37 "If reasoning is so great, why are we the only species with such a sophisticated grasp of it? Currently-accepted most likely answer: the complexity of the human brain results in extra processing power, which gives rise to our ability to reason. The human brain grew how it did due to a combination of environmental and genetic factors (genetic factors predisposed us to take advantage of environmental factors, such as more temperate and mild climates, larger food-sources of calories and lipids, and ideal mates). 9:38 "If it's purpose is truth and good judgment, why don't we all agree on everything?" Odd teleological phrasing of that question. It is strange to ascribe a 'purpose' to the advent of reason, from an evolutionary perspective. Reason allows one to take advantage of truth and good judgment, of reliable knowledge, but reason is not the motor for action, desire is. We don't all agree on everything either because we're operating from different sets of facts, or different base assumptions, or even different goals, goals as dictated by our desires. It's not necessarily reasonable, or 'unreasonable' to want someone dead, or to want to eat a particular food, but reason can certainly aid one in realizing those desires. This is just approaching the is/ought question from another angle. 10:08 "The world is not a logic puzzle." Not necessarily, no, but looking at it as though it were might still aid us in understanding its problems and acting accordingly. 14:29 [Vsauce's point about facial expressions and body language]. These are not things that are untrained though; they might seem intuitive, and in a sense they are, because we have such a good grasp on them, our ability to process those things has been trained into us at a deep level, and so we respond by [albiet cultivated] instinct. 15:02 "They're all just guesses." No, they're not. They are inductive inferences. 17:28 "They each have their own unique values, dispositions, and experiences" [Explanation and examination of the social theory of the purpose (or more generously, function) of reasoning]. I think it is fair to say that reasoning (rationalization) is a tool that we can use to increase our social standing, but it can and obviously does apply to many other things more practically useful for survival. 18:46 [Vsauce's 'ABC Burgers' example]. The problem there is that he is pressing his friend too much. In a real conversation, you're not going to get beyond the second reason before getting a 'fuck off I already told you I'm not eating there.' 19:07 "Using reason as it evolved to function." [Stronger and stronger, or at least more aggressive, arguments]. 20:02 "[Confirmation bias] is a problem for the intellectualist view of reason." Is it? It is certainly a difficulty or obstacle that one must overcome, but that does not mean it is necessarily a problem for the intellectualist view of reason; not every facet of our being is ideally suited to our current circumstances. We have confirmation bias due to our instinct and our ability to recognize patterns, both traits that helped our ancestors survive to pass on those traits. Sometimes, traits that we evolved that were valuable at one point, are no longer so now. 20:47 "The confirmation bias at least halves the work that must be done." Not necessarily. There is value in different perspectives, because different people can see different angles and draw different ideas up from the same material, so that what one person might have missed, another will see. Ergo the real, observable social advantage is in having different pairs of eyes on the same set of material. 21:19 [Vsauce's 'ask the audience' argument]. This is epistemologically dangerous. In questions of more general knowledge, this tactic can often be extremely effective for arriving at a correct answer, but 'the crowd' are often ignorant of specialized knowledge and other important details. 26:36 [Jury argument]. We've seen the weakness in this, because Derek Chauvin got wrongfully convicted. Vsauce's hard hold on an expansive notion of democracy is I think, one of the major factors that has brought him to acceptance of the social theory of reason, but there are significant challenges to that theory, and more than a few value-judgments that said theory depends on.

    Ok, I get it. It was an episode about how much I'm polluting and how I should change my way of life. Sure, when Elon Musk, Bezos and Gates will start using carts like in the 1800s maybe I'll think about buying an EV. Until then, uhh... no.
