The new Joker film with Joaquin Phoenix is an extremely timely and relevant commentary on what is happening in the Western world right now.

From the mass shootings and the epidemic of mental illness to the grief and anger that people are feeling in the climate change protests, the film is symbolic of many patterns emerging in modern society.

In many ways, the film is a warning. We wanted to do a commentary on what can be done about the feelings and patterns of behaviour illustrated in the film, and what we can do about them on an individual and societal level.

In Part 2 of our interview with Nora Bateson, an award-winning filmmaker, writer, educator, and the President of the International Bateson Institute, we continue our discussion on sense-making, on order and chaos, complex systems and cultures, and what we really need for social and cultural change.

Nora comes from a family lineage of complexity thinkers - her father was the systems theorist Gregory Bateson and her grandfather was the biologist William Bateson, who coined the term genetics.

Nora’s book Small Arcs of Larger Circles came out in 2016, and she is currently working on her next book about Warm Data, or the interrelational processes between and among systems.

Her work brings the fields of biology, cognition, art, anthropology, psychology, and information technology together into a study of the patterns in ecology of living systems.

We’ve been diving deep into several projects lately - growing our courses, designing a brand new meditation app, starting the global Future Thinkers meetup initiative, and brainstorming the creation of an in-person retreat center for exploring the ideas and practices we talk about on the podcast and in our courses.

In this episode we discuss our vision for this retreat center, why we want to create it, and what we want to do there. This is still in a very early stage and a work in progress.

We want to share our intention and invite you to collaborate with us on this idea if you feel inspired by it.

Our guest in the following two episodes is Cris Beasley, an author, podcaster, ex AI startup founder and healing practitioner who created the Love Lock card deck to help people explore and work with difficult emotions. We asked Cris some of the questions that we often get from our listeners and course participants: how to access the repressed emotions in the body, what are some of the helpful techniques and tools to do it, and how to integrate these emotions into our lives in a healthy way.

This episode is in two parts. In Part 1 we talk about the most common 4 emotional responses in difficult situations, the transformative power of breath work, and other tools to access difficult emotions. 

In Part 2 we will talk about the role of emotional health in society and why it is crucial for gaining self-sovereignty, as well as the current position of mainstream science on energy work and healing practices.

We had a great pleasure to interview John Vervaeke, a lecturer at the University of Toronto in the departments of psychology, cognitive science and Buddhist psychology. John’s excellent lecture series on YouTube called Awakening From the Meaning Crisis has inspired us to invite him on the show and discuss how to overcome the meaning crisis in today’s world.

In this interview we also dive deep into the topics of integrating scientific and traditional views of the search for meaning, multiple kinds of knowing, and the ecology of transformational practices. We draw on various resources from cognitive science, psychology, philosophy, religion and spirituality. 

This episode is divided in two parts. In Part 1 we talk about what is the meaning crisis, why it has emerged and what are some of the practices and solutions to deal with it.

In this episode we discuss further on one of our favorite topics - how to gain more sovereignty in modern world, as well as how it relates to the notion of personal identity. We use Jordan Greenhall's framework to describe sovereignty as developing and practicing three basic capacities: perception, sense making and agency. We discuss these capacities in the context of dominant framework of secular thought in the Western world, the crisis of meaning, entrepreneurship, identity politics etc.

The ideas and inspiration for our discussions come from weekly group calls that are part of the course in personal evolution that we are currently facilitating.

Our guest in this episode is Joe Brewer, Executive Director at the Center for Applied Cultural Evolution. Joe is a complexity researcher, cognitive scientist, and evangelist for regenerative culture design. We invited him onto the show because we felt that our ideas about adult development, rites of passage, and overcoming the chasm of nihilism strongly resonated with his thinking and work on cultural evolution. This interview turned out to be very dense and we talked about complex subjects, so we divided the episode in two parts.

In Part 1 we talk about what kind of education we need in order to prepare for an evolutionary transition, why even intellectuals can’t wrap their heads around climate change, and the importance of the grieving process for psychological and spiritual growth.

Category:philosophy -- posted at: 6:00pm CET

Identity politics have become a hot topic in the Western world. People tend to attach their sense of identity to certain political ideas, gender identity, ethnic or religious group, sexual orientation etc, and often get triggered when they perceive their identity is being threatened.

Today we discuss why it is useful and important to detach from these categories in order to develop psychologically. We talk about how to deconstruct your identity and tell the stories of how we have done it.

In This Episode Of Future Thinkers:

  • What it means to deconstruct your identity, and how it enables us to see things more objectively
  • The current narratives of diversity, oppression and globalization as formative forces
  • The relationship between individual expression and narcissistic culture
  • Why it is difficult to stand out in a globalized culture and why we emphasize differences
  • Why people remain attached to ideas even after those ideas are disproved
  • The role of basic human needs when it comes to attachments
  • The different methods for deconstructing identity
  • Getting comfortable with contradiction and letting go of the attachment to results

In this episode we are discussing the concept of "adulting" and why it's relevant today. We also talk about how being an adult will change in the future and what meta-skills one needs to develop in order to adapt to the fast-changing world.

Adulting is an ironic term used by the Millenial generation to describe holding grown up responsibilities like paying the bills or taxes for example, but not feeling like an actual adult while doing that. We discuss why the adult "script" that was handed to us by the previous generations (go to school, get good grades, get a career for life, get married etc) doesn’t seem relevant or even possible for many young people today.

Instead of the specific skills that are taught in schools and tailored for the traditional script of adulthood, we are exploring meta-skills, or the general skills that one can apply to any area of life to learn other skills.

In This Episode of Future Thinkers:

  • Why Millenials don't feel like adults today even if they are technically grown up
  • The differences in going through the stages of life between our parents' and our generation
  • How the increasing social and technological complexity causes anxiety among young people
  • The history and reasons behind the "coddling" style of parenting in 1980s
  • The traits of today's young generations that make them vulnerable to real life challenges
  • How to adapt to the present and future world and increase personal sovereignty
  • Three pillars of cognitive sovereignty
  • The examples of meta-skills that are useful for learning any other skill and adapting to changes

We recently participated and spoke at DGOV Council in Berlin, an event that explored new principles of human-centric scalable governance. The experience inspired us to think more deeply about distributed governance, the emergence of collective intelligence, anti-fragility and sovereignty. In this episode we are discussing what kind of collective system is possible in the future and how to manage the diversity of values in such system.

In This Episode Of Future Thinkers:

  • The definition of collective intelligence
  • The difference between a decentralized and distributed governance
  • How ideological frameworks corrupt personal sovereignty on every level
  • Why we need a system world view and flexible frameworks to think about the society
  • Internet meme tribes as a form of fulfilling the need to belong to a community
  • How to learn to have a conversation with someone with different values
  • The emergence of natural hierarchy vs. flattening bureaucracy
  • How to solve the issues with dominance and tyranny in a collective system
  • The possibility of building an optimal omni-thrive system that supports thriving of each subsystem

  • Flattening of hierarchical structures and the cost of decentralization at scale
  • Why the idea of a global government meets resistance on both left and right side of political spectrum
  • Mobility as a universal human right and why next generation cities and states will compete for humans
  • How we can work together with different varieties of conscious AIs in the future
  • Asking good questions — a uniquely human trait that cannot be replicated by AIs
  • Possible future professions related to AI industry like AI curator or AI whisperer
  • Implications of AI safety movement and the inconsistent ethics of humans
  • Decentralizing manifestations of AR — mixed reality world
  • Censorship concerns in a post-ownership society
