Are we ready for an Intelligence that distinguishes between:
Raw affect vs Emotion?
Non-conscious vs Conscious Cognition?
What man IS vs What man OUGHT?
“Our brains are wired to make decisions based on what gives the most positive emotional bang for our buck. That's not always consistent with what's rationally in our best interest.”
“What I've gained the most from Christianity is a spirit of humility. Quite frankly, I believe I'm the most humble person on this planet.”
“Are our brains wired for hedonism?”
“I felt really bad being alone in UBER pool. It was $2.49 for a 6 mile trip. My conscience was crippling me. I thought about leaving a tip, which I hastily declined. For what's it worth, I gave him 5 stars.”
“The more I study neuroscience the less I agree it's actually a science. It seems to me the field is dominated by very smart philosophers that know a great deal of jargon about brain anatomy.”
“My brother and his wife had a big argument. The worst hurricane ever to hit South Florida was on its way and he was in DC. All he did was suggest he wait in DC until it was safe to join her in Tampa.”
“The notion of unconditional love is a logically fallacious oxymoron. The condition to you my dear friends is that the object of your attention and affection is of sufficient value.”
“Do you have ANY idea what it's like to jam to your own composition”
