We live in a universe filled with awe and wonderment so much so that scientists of all disciplines have been exploring the world around us for hundreds of years. Although we have made great advances there is still an immeasurable gap in what there is left to discover. Alex Filippenko joins we today to share his vast knowledge as an astrophysicist that has been exploring fundamental physics, black holes, galaxies and more for over 40 years. He breaks down quantum entanglement and the expanding universe and a way that is digestible for nearly everyone.

QUOTES:

“In a sense, we are the way in which the universe has found to know itself.” [5:30]

 

“Work hard at maintaining an open mind so you don't get fossilized, so you don't get set in your ways.” [51:59]

“If you ever feel comfortable with quantum physics, it probably means you haven't thought about it sufficiently” [1:00:21]

“But one of the great things about homosapiens is that we embrace technical challenges. We go for it, we climb the mountain because it's there, first because it's interesting, but secondly, because it ends up having unanticipated spin offs.” [1:14:26]

 

“to have novel insights, I've just got to take in data that I can't yet predict how it's going to be useful.” Tom Bilyeu [1:17:33]

“as physicists, as scientists, initially, we come across these new ideas, quantum entanglement, and you have to just struggle with them and work hard on them and approach them from different perspectives. It's not going to be easy, but good things are hard to do and hard things are good to do.” [1:19:26]

“it's the quality of the time that you live. That's actually more important than the duration” [1:23:29]

 

“You can't just say there are a lot of stars out there, and surely they're teaming with life. There are a lot of factors that lead to life, and then intelligence and mechanical ability at our level. And I think they're fairly rare. I don't think we're unique, but I think they're pretty rare.” [1:56:11]

You make think of insulin resistance as being reserved for diabetics, and you may have even drawn the same conclusion I have, that the problem is glucose being too high.

QUOTES:

“when you start asking someone to change habits, you are probably asking them to do the most difficult thing they can do. It's just so much simpler to take a pill. And consequences be damned” [15:31]

 

“... it might be empowering, that rather than hopelessly taking medications every day, knowing that the only the only future is increasing the dose of those medications. Let's actually address the true origins of the problem, which [...] is often going to be insulin resistance.” [18:17]

 

“insulin’s telling the body how much fat to store, the sex hormones are just telling the body where to store it, and how” [28:08]

 

“the muscle is so hungry during exercise, that it just basically tells insulin look when I'm at rest, you're the boss, but when I'm exercising, I'm the boss. I'm going to get what I need, and so it basically pushes insulin to the side.” [39:01]

 

“if you try to compare diet to exercise, diet will beat the hell out of exercise, as a variable for insulin resistance.” [42:00]

 

“it [vegan diet] is a privilege of the elite. You have to be educated enough to know what your deficiencies are, and you have to be wealthy enough to afford the supplements” [44:47]

To know where you are going, they say you should know where you’ve been. Science fiction has been well documented for its often accurate predictions and a loved being a social curiosity for many. In this episode, Tom is joined by physicist and bestselling science fiction author, David Brin. David exposes how science fiction can be more accurately described as “speculative history” than anything else. Their conversation explores society through history from the Periclean times all the way through modern U.S. politics and what a transparent society top-down, and bottom-up would imply and necessitate.

Which diet are you following? Are you doing the carnivore diet? Vegan? Keto? The choices and variations of every diet plan available is nearly endless. At the heart of the matter, diet consciousness is a question of overall health and better managing and preventing diseases and conditions that hinder your performance and destroy your ability to live a happy and healthy life. In this episode, nephrologist and intermittent fasting expert, Dr. Jason Fung, exposes the overarching importance of understanding your body’s hormonal response to insulin activated by what you eat and the frequency with which you eat. He also breaks down the three major paradigms for cancer, and ranks the danger of a poor diet as high as cigarette smoke in terms of high risk contributors of cancer. Dr. Fung is also the author of the #1 best seller, The Obesity Code.

QUOTES:

“So it's simply false to say, if you cut 500 calories a day down, you will lose a pound of body fat a week, it's actually not true in any way, shape, or form.” [5:31]

 

“when you're thinking about weight gain, weight loss, you really have to think about hormones, because it's really a hormonal imbalance, not a caloric imbalance” [12:04]

 

“when insulin is going down you're going to burn body fat, [...] you can't burn body fat if insulin is high.” [21:05]

 

“...we're not trying to kill cells with immunotherapy, we're not trying to fix genetic mutations. What we're trying to do is treat these cancers like a foreign species, like an invasive foreign species...” [40:03]

 

“diet actually plays a massive role, and by understanding it, perhaps you can reduce your risk of cancer.” [47:45]
