The lottocracy doesn't seem like a bad idea, especially at the local level, maybe the house too. I just picture an interesting dynamic where some regular guy who works doing something like contruction work being "in office" as the "big wigs" and "well to do" people are all in his grill trying to push their agendas... it might not be a bad idea but then again you do want some positions filled by "the best of the best" as in based on merit.

Спасибо, висос, про гипер-объекты я почитаю сам, без добавки в виде сказок про миллиарды тонн человеческого пердежа, от которых тают ледники.

I used to be sharp, 140 iq, until I needed heavy chemo, and now I can't understand the simplest concepts. I'm very embarrassed to ask this, but how do we conclude that Mary is married from the limited inferences given? I can't concentrate on the rest of the video because of this. I apologize. Please be kind. (I did beat the cancer, though, with surgery and radiation as well. Chemo really sucks for the mind. Don't think I'd do it again)

Hello! Don’t be worried about asking questions online, it’s a great way to learn, and hopefully I can help you; So, first of all, as Michael said, we don’t need to know what Mary’s “deal” is, meaning that in order to solve this problem, knowing whether Mary is married or not is surprisingly unnecessary, and you may be asking “How is that?” Well, to figure out if a married person is looking at an unmarried person, we need to know the status of two people (the one who is looking at the other one and the one that is being looked at). We have two circumstances here, Paul looking at Mary, and Mary looking at Peter, but in both cases, we would need to know if Mary is married or unmarried to solve this. Or would we? See, for this statement (“Is a married person looking at an unmarried person”) to be true, in the first case, where Paul is looking at Mary, given the fact that Paul is married, Mary needs to be unmarried, but on the second case, given into consideration that Peter is an unmarried person, Mary should be married for the statement to be true; so we have two opposites, which means that because Mary can only be either one of two, married or unmarried, the denial of one means the authenticity of the other one, so if one of the cases doesn’t verify the statement, the other one will, and vice-versa. If Mary’s married, then the statement is true, because Mary (a married person) is looking at Peter (an unmarried person), and if she’s unmarried, then Peter (an unmarried person) is looking at Mary (an unmarried person) and we can check it to be true as well! Hopefully you understand it better now, maybe you were just a bit confused and this whole essay I wrote was unnecessary, but the sheer possibility that a bit of my time might’ve helped someone else makes it worth it! I hope you have a wonderful day/night, happy to know you beat cancer as well, keep going strong! ✌️ P.S.: I’m 15 years old and Portuguese, so if any of this didn’t make sense, that’s probably why 🙃

I love watching Vsauce even though I frequently disagree with his viewpoints. His evolutionary presuppositions taint his conclusions on every subject. But I guess I don't need to go into reason why I believe this. Let me ask you this (anyone reading my comment) what if the Hive Mind is intrinsically broken and therefore wrong on these ultimate decisions? When I observe the tangible world around me I can't help but feel and know it is broken in almost every way possible and ultimately breaking more. So - go ahead and trust Bill Gates and your hope of a technological savior...but I would be remiss if I didn't invite you into a paradigm shift: The world was created and we were given these incredible minds as a gift. But part of that gift was autonomy which leads to misuse. Another clear observation any of us can make is the law of diminishing returns and when you really stand back and look at civilization - it's devolving.

I love your videos. I also like how what initially seemed like a presentation that would invite the comment "your optimism is charming" eventually is revealed to be otherwise, but a surprisingly understanding otherwise rather than a shaming one. I would like to share this video on, say, some "random" social media platform, where I anticipate being disappointed by a lack of engagement and discussion over it from the very individuals I would be intending it for. You've got 12.2 million subscribers and 5.6 million views will turn to crickets if I were to share it to my "algorithmically reduced" friend audience of a few hundred.

I see a problem with this lottacracy theory. The part about learning from experts. Now, how would you choose those experts? It can be an area of expertese, their knowledge level, their prestige... But wouldn't that come down to those same old methods of choosing the leader? You could choose them randomly, but then they could be mismatched by their level of informness. And then, how would the end jury come to a decision? In court there isn't many options they should choose, but in such a wide topic as climate change, there could be hundreds of potential solutions, how would you come to a single decision with that? You could give them a small list of potential solutions, but then again comes the problem of deciding which solutions to include.

What I don't like about social theory of reasoning is the expectation to publicly give reasons and/or defending your answers. I think you get the most honest answers, suggestions or decisions when they are anonymous or at least asked by a third party that has no bias either way. When people give in to herd mentality then social theory loses its credibility and starts to fall apart. I hate the societal norm that people ask and are expected to give an answer to who they voted for in elections. I think it pressures people to follow who they think is the herd (be it family, friends etc.) and sometimes vote in a way they normally wouldn't have. But I also think that lobbyists and cold-calling people to pressure them to vote a certain way should,'t be allowed either so maybe I'm a weirdo

When he said " it's almost as if we have this inherent nature about us that causes us to fail, and go against, or how we can't all agree." This same "reasoning" has been around forever and is taught in many ways. Same idea different wording, biblically speaking they call this behavior "sin" that we change the world, build advanced civilizations, yet, we cannot run from this truth deep within our own being. We were created, and so we create. But all things come to and end, no matter how we package it. Our thoughts and imaginations (if if they last a thousand years, or out last our life spans and bleed into another's) will fall apart, and we'll start all over again. Histo y has taught us this, as of right now we are the greatest. So we're blind to our own ruin, or think we are so advanced we can out think and continue to be many moves ahead of the game. But eventually, the great innovative minds will die off, and our own primal animalistic nature will win and everything will come to and end. Stay prayed up, if we don't believe in something greater then we are doomed to trust in the eclipsing logic and reasoning until everyone wants to do what's right for themselves.

If you don't spend more time on thinking about things that don't make sense to you, you're ignoring that the input data could be biased already. Or simply reflect on something else than you think it does. So confirmation bias is an inevitable side effect of that. The communication argument is not false. But an argument is only ever as good as the reality it projects.
