There Is No Spoon

TINS – Ep. 3: Cosmic Web And the Human Connectome

By April 10, 2020 No Comments

Today Rich took a look at the Cosmic Web and how related it is to the connectomes (connected neural pathways) of mice and humans.

There Is No Spoon is a weekly talk that balances the line between absurd genius and Mad-Hatter insane. The topics are often unusual, and are designed to spur imagination about possibilities rather than a 100% defined space. It’s where the kids go when they’re no longer afraid of failing, and simply imagine the possibilities of existence.

Rich also discussed parts from his book, “On Terran Liberty”, a 7 volume series coming where volume 2 is now available to read here: https://amzn.to/35OEfdd

The thoughts with Sir Richard Penrose, my version of multi-dimensional intelligence, and Rodney Brooks that lead to: “Just like we need light from the stars and matter to access the energy within, likewise we need sensory setups to be able to access the world and create intelligence.” https://youtu.be/dHsVDjV_hg8?t=2592
