QUOTES:

 

“There are intersecting, overlapping and reinforcing meta crisis happening right now. And so it's not just any single thing, and none of the challenges that we're facing, stop or respect, zip codes or political boundaries” [9:42]

 

“And so we have to actually be willing to lean into that drop. It's like skateboarding or snowboarding or anything, like you're standing on the lip of something steep, you don't fall back away from it, you actually have to lean into it, to stick the landing.” [17:52]

 

“...the point isn't to end the game victorious. The point is to keep playing for as long as possible, with as many people as possible.” [21:39]

 

“...the narrative challenge,[...] is actually, can we acknowledge that both are true? It's an incredibly complex quadratic equation. We don't know how it's going to turn out, our participation in it plays a big part in how it turns out. So we need to be vigilant and subtle, and adaptive, and responsive, all at once.” [30:28]

 

“No one beats our collective intelligence.” [57:12]

 

“grieve globally, [...] actually open our hearts to the wound of the world right now, and everyone and everything on it, but thrive locally.” [57:49]

 

“tribalism is destiny and humanism is optional” [1:02:33]

 

“we need to get more effective and more deliberate and more inclusive about our access to healing, inspiration and connection.” [1:10:31]

 

“...when we try and suppress the random and fickle and unknowable nature of existence, right, we tend to create more trauma, we tend to create more heartache, versus just bearing witness in the not knowing of it all.” [1:56:00]

 

“I wake up in the morning torn between the desire to save the world, or savor it.” [1:58:52]

 

“...instead of me trying to escape my mundane existence, I'm coming back to it. And I'm coming back to it with fresh eyes and an open heart and gratitude.” [2:04:23]

“If something comes up that you didn’t expect or that you didn’t know was going to come. Your plan’s not bad, it got you to where you are right now. You have to deal with what’s in front of you.

There is a need to highly value sleep and learn tips to improve your sleep health and be more productive in your time awake.

The word ‘capitalism’ seems to make some people happy, while making others cringe. The U.S. started as a capitalist society and has evolved into a mix of capitalism and socialism. As society and technology evolves, how should our economic system evolve in response? In this episode, Sir Ronald Cohen, “the father of British venture capital” speaks with Tom about the importance of social impact and what impact investing is evolving into and how it can change the social world for the better. Creating systems that support entrepreneurs, venture capitalists, and social responsibility of big companies is just the tip of a massive iceberg. Listen in to see how this all ties into our natural desire to evolve and strive for more than just money.

Digestive diseases are affecting tens of millions of people everyday. So often gut issues are being misdiagnosed and ineffectively handled due to poor diet, misinformation, and general confusion. In this episode, the Gut Health MD, Dr. Will Bulsiewicz (or Dr. B for short) breaks down what is really going on with the microbiome and what we can do to stop damaging it and start supporting it. He drops some shocking facts about microbes and even how your past trauma and unresolved emotional scars can impact the health of your gut. Dr. Bulsiewicz is well researched and an actively practicing physician that wants to simplify how you can improve your overall health by understanding your unique ecosystem and making better food choices to change your microbiome as early as tomorrow.

QUOTES:

“I think one of the major issues [...] is that we live in a society that is completely devoid of fiber consumption. And fiber is the preferred food of these gut microbes.” [10:03]

 

“I personally am vegan [...] I'm not teaching the science because I'm vegan. I'm vegan, because the science led me to where I am today.” [11:42]

 

“with every single dietary choice, we are contributing to the balance that exists within our microbiome.” [18:33]

 

“our fiber deficiency is causing us to suffer consequences because our gut microbes are not being fed.” [24:56]

 

“...the microbiome changes in less than 24 hours, whatever dietary choice you make. So literally, the food that you're eating today will have an effect on your microbiome tomorrow.” [37:04]

 

“If you are suffering from trauma, and abuse history, whether it was physical, sexual, emotional, psychological. If you don't directly address that issue, you will not heal your microbiome. The stress that is driven by that underlying trauma history is an open wound that persists, and it festers until it is addressed.” [41:30]

QUOTES:

“I just don't want to get fired, so I will do anything to help and support and listen and learn and truly, like that is what I think made me successful there because I was a sponge like taking it all in and recognizing there was a hell of a lot more that I needed to learn to be good”  [7:28]

 

“I’ve learned along the way when you are trying to be something you’re not that is when you lose your confidence” [10:20]

 

“The minute you acknowledge what you did you have control over changing that.” [17:23]

 

“Don’t ever worry that someone didn’t ask you to do something, just get on and do it.” [25:41]

 

“It’s about getting them to understand that you will be happy and fulfilled if you do whatever you do in your life off of your own steam, [...] For me the single biggest learning is like, don’t look for shortcuts, don’t look for people to give you handouts. Go figure it out for yourself because that is what will make you the most satisfied happy person you can be” [30:15]

 

“I just have worked in predominantly male industries the whole way through, and it just I never even really noticed that I was the only woman at the table very often, I just was like ‘well fuck I’m here’, so I am going to do the best I can and it’s up to me to outperform my peer group whoever they are.”   [32:14]

 

“Until you’ve been to the depths of the canyon of despair like that’s where the learning and the growth comes from and you come back so much stronger on the other side. [40:18]

Come back this Saturday (4/3) for a special video covering the very best of how to improve your longevity!

Imagine waking up from a simulated reality where everything you know is interpreted and never truly experienced. Is it possible the reality you’ve known for the last few decades is no reality at all? In this episode, Donald Hoffman returns and takes a deeper dive with Tom to discuss the complexities of consciousness perceived in and out of spacetime. Donald shares the possibilities of consciousness and the infinite nature of theories that exist outside of the virtual reality headset he uses to describe the version of reality you may still be experiencing. Take the plunge into this conversation and challenge the consciousness of what you call your true self.

QUOTES:

 

“ Science has not yet been studying objective reality outside of our space time virtual reality, that from an evolutionary point of view, was just evolved as a way for us to play the game of life, and stay alive long enough to reproduce, not to show us the truth.” [8:06]

 

“That's what spacetime is. Spacetime, the sun and the moon, physical objects, everything that we see inside of space and time is just our visualization tool. The reality we're interacting with is nothing like the visualization tool. There's nothing like space and time. It's a whole network of interacting conscious agents outside of space time, a vast social network. And we've made the rookie mistake of assuming that our headset, VR, our visualization tool, is the final reality.” [17:55]

 

“no matter how much consciousness explores its possibilities, it could never come to the end of its own possibilities. And so it's in a never ending self exploration.” [31:22]

 

“And right now we're sort of stuck on this little headset, three dimensions, small amount of color that we can see and so forth. Just, we thought it was the whole world. No, it's just it's a little headset.” [33:08]

 

“...we’re chasing that consciousness itself is only about exploring new possibilities of experience.” [35:55]

 

“So the reason I'm doing this is because I can't even imagine a specific color that I've never seen before, I can't imagine in four dimensions. In other words, I take it as a given that I'm deeply, deeply limited in my imagination. And I need all the tools I can get to help me step outside of my headset and try to guess, the unfathomable outside of there.” [52:47]

 

“There seems to be reward for absolute silence, no concept whatsoever, and out absolute precision on the other hand. And there's no reward for sloppy thinking in the middle.” [1:51:57]

 

“don't hold on to anything dogmatically right as that's the sort of the point explore and then be the first to kill off the things that you know really don't make sense don't don't hold on to them so it's an anti dogmatic point of view” [1:54:37]
