About Us

The Idea List Podcast began as a YouTube channel of the same name (www.youtube.com/idealisteye), where I put forward some new, interesting ideas about the nature of reality, videos with titles like “What is Existence?” and “Who Experiences Your Life?”I’ve realized that putting together visual content to go along with my ideas isn’t always necessary, and it takes a lot more time than writing and recording an episode, so here I am in podcast world.

Episode 5: The Single Most Important Idea that We're Missing

Episode 4: Consciousness: the Most Incredible and Fortunate Thing in the Universe

Consciousness! Without it, the Universe might as well not exist, because there wouldn’t be anyone there to experience reality, wouldn’t be anyone there to perceive that there’s such a thing as existence at all. In this episode, I talk about the fundamental role I believe consciousness plays in reality and why we shouldn't look at it as an impossibly magical thing, but as the most natural thing in existence. I frame this discussion with the observation that consciousness seems to arise from certain types of information processing, and examine what this means for our understanding of reality and our place in the world. I also put forward some ideas about how thinking works, about how consciousness influences physical matter, about why consciousness evolved, and an understanding of the "binding problem" in the philosophy of mind. Some of the amazing possibilities awaiting us in the future in the form of augmented intelligence and AI are also described. Music: 0:30- Juana Molina, "Si...

Episode 3: If You Change Your Perspective, You Change Your Life

Episode 2: What is Existence?

What is reality, really? It strikes me sometimes just how fortunate it is that this infinitely beautiful Universe gets to exist, that all these complex and diverse phenomena get to happen. We take it for granted (because, after all, it is granted), but how strange it is that we are born into this miraculous reality with no explanation as to who we really are or where we came from. I think it is immensely valuable to be able to take a step back from our day-to-day lives and just stand in awe before the mystery and immensity of it all. I've spent quite a bit of time in this meditative perspective, trying to glean insights into what it must take for this unimaginable world to exist, and this video series is an attempt to share these ideas. Here we explore many of the most intriguing questions: What is real? Why are we here? What is space? What is time? What is information? What is god? What is consciousness? Who am I? What am I? After pondering these ideas from the perspective given he...

Episode 2: What is Existence?

Episode 1: How Can We Break the Cycle?

In this first episode of the Idea List Podcast, I explore the reasons we as a species tend to repeat our worst mistakes- wars, genocide, slavery, things of that nature. I also put forward the key idea I believe we need to adopt if we are ever going to break out of this cycle. The outro music is "The Wax Philosophers" by Deku, from the 2014 album "Escapism": https://deku.bandcamp.com/track/the-wax-philosophers
