Yo, Vsauce. I just got this idea about a video. "Will you remember this video?". So, what can one do, to plant a memory in one's brain forever? How are memories even stored? Most importantly: could you make the random viewer remember the video, which is based on this exact idea??

Don't waste your money on Bill Gates' book. He only offers solutions if he can make money. I can tell you what he says for free: Animal agriculture is one of the main drivers of climate disaster. Adopt a plant-based diet and cut your greenhouse gas emissions by more than half. Don't fall for this -> 24:28 This is everyone's responsibility.

It would have been nice to see some direct references to existing political theory and practice in here - these principles have been written about extensively and incorporated into successful societies already - it's just that these successes have been actively hidden. If anyone's interested, look at Rojava's implementation of Bookchin's communalism; the EZLNs incorporation of libertarian communist thought; foundational anarchist works like 'God and the State'; pieces on psychological egoism, like 'The Ego and It's Own'; or pieces of syndicalist, council communist and libertarian Marxist theory.

Because if "they" can reason with humans, we have the best shot at solving all of our current problems.

Okay, what?! I was with you nodding along until you said "But what if reasoning wasn't built for what we've become?" 🤯 This is both scary and cool. Lottocracy doesn't really sound that much better than democracy, or at least what democracy is supposed to be. Lottocracy just sounds like complete random, whereas the idea of "the crowd" managing to average out the results would indicate that the idea of democracy (in theory, not in practice) should end up with the best results, no?

@Vsauce you mention the average guess for # of jelly beans is more accurate but you don’t mention whether that is the value people actually come to when deliberating as a group. Do certain voices dominate and the groups guess is swayed more in that way? Are there individuals who’s guess is even more accurate than the group average? And if so wouldn’t them leading be more effective, sort of like a meritocracy

I had already seen a video about the Ancient Athens way of government by randomly electing people to temporarily serve as officials and always found the idea fascinating. It would eliminate sooo many problems with our failed "democracy" (but which is really a "representative republic"). Though no doubt introducing new ones in turn. Still, it would be a fascinating experiment for a small country to do and see how that goes.

To contribute to the "wisdom of crowds" in the line of “lottocracy” he mentions “people paid to learn from experts” (as to cast their vote on political issues) but who will control who is the “expert” and what are those expert preconceived ideological leanings (that are almost inevitable)? And who determines the range of experts that could exist to offer nuances of whatever field is offered on a subject? There is little room for error in things like mathematics but on so many other things (most things in fact) there are nuances and differences. And even worse: You can even produce experts that hold different views on a given field with equally valid points. And the worst: You can even produce “experts” on pseudoscience that sound as good as real experts for the untrained ears and minds and can simply induce fake conclusions rather that help people to have a honest view on reality. For instance, social sciences nowadays are mired with hypothesis that do not pass the scientific methods AND yet they are used (over and over again) to justify policies that are ideologically tainted to the core, and all in the name of politically correct views that can not be scientifically challenged (lest those who do are socially punished).

It’s hard to want to do individuals at random guided by experts because experts have a vested interest in supporting their opinion through confirmation bias as well. The best solution thus far has been to find experts that have different opinions and put them against one another. Hence why we have two different parties. Federalist 51: Ambition must be made to counteract ambition. *Edit: I typed Fed 10 not 51

This is a misunderstanding of both the issue and the two party 'solution'. This video is a direct response to the failures of this system to work with principles of collective decision making, specifically around hyper-objects. I assume by 'we' you mean the US - in which case the only reason the US has 'two' parties is it's FPTP voting system - the largest parties will always stay dominant and therefore have no incentive to provide contesting perspectives for any other reason then ensuring election. This cycle removes all motivation for 'experts' and falls into the exact traps this video points out. The parties do not represent two contesting sides of a conflict, but two manifestations of the one and the same oligarchy that is caught in an endless power struggle against itself, resulting in a consolidation of policy and decision making into a small group of elite, rather than the collective.

There exist groups whose conclusions seem so outlandish to the crowd at large that there are sites dedicated to asking them for their reasons in an attempt to set aside differences and better understand them, which I love. But often when you ask them for reasons, they seem to have little to no interest in participating, either giving a reason, which is often met with scrutiny or counterpoint, which is in turn met with vitriol, or jumping right to the end with comments such as “I don’t have to answer to you.” No, man. You don’t. But why are you coming here if you’re just gonna give up or not participate? I’m sure others’ conclusions seem just as outlandish to them, they must, but how can we start nailing group assignments if half of us don’t even want to try? And frankly, why complain about everyone being “so divided” and “facts vs. truth” and “nobody listening to your side,” when you’ve based your entire ideology on exclusivity and confirmation bias, and will click off of a video you were actually enjoying and appreciating at the first mention of a name you don’t like?

Dag siden
Rin
Rin

I've actually practiced enough self awareness to recognize when I'm using ad hoc reasoning. Inventing reasons for something that didn't have one. I developed this skill because I cared so much over my entire lifetime of being right and have always been afraid of my own bias. After all that time... I still can't help doing it. It really does feel wired in. Sometimes I have to reverse course and give a better reason that is truer. It's always simpler. Like an instinct. A trained reaction to stimulus. Something was just familiar to me. If I were to take that test with the faces, and I did everything how I imagine it, I'd be much more prone to say, "it felt right." Or more honestly, "I forgot." Or even not be able to give a reason at all regardless.

Dag siden

The reason people disagree are because of three things that stand it to me. One, people by nature use words to communicate that have definitions that don't always align. So when two people talk about the same word, they could mean completely different things. Leading to disagreement where if they were able to clarify they would actually agree. Two, people have access to different pieces of information. Having different pieces of information will lead to different inferences. Three, current emotional state can affect interpretation, exacerbating the first two items on this list. Someone who is defensive or angry will more likely interpret any ambiguity in word definitions in the most contradicting way. This will all so lead to them rejecting sources of information that would otherwise be valid. My conclusion based on the information thus far? Your anger and frustration, in any case, should be tempered and avoided while reasoning. It very often leads to compromised perceptions that are warped in respect to reality, and because of the nature of the mind, it will be nearly impossible to tell. If you feel anger, your ability to reason has already been compromised. And it doesn't matter how right you are. You are still compromised.

“The crowd” is on average dumb and can not provide a “wise” collective decision, unless in trivial questions like how much jellybeans are in a jar.
