start pounding on the roof there fixing something here alright folks without any further ado please welcome eric weinstein the joe rogan experience yes the last hello eric lucia thanks to this had a question you're not late into that other fella the other one team fell it's in trouble right now brett once and now that's your brother the other hello one the other guy yeah i don't know him okay the i got in trouble it is like two more women angelina jolie and uh they both came out today yeah i don't think it's going to stop there seems like you might have a little bit of an issue
amazing that someone can get away with something like that for so long and then one or two people come clean in the walls come down the oppressive fist of just his tyranny whatever i did yeah i mean i think it does speak to the idea that really exists in an industry in a town like this it's always been like that that's been the cliche right the casting couch right yes i didn't know in the modern era how much how much power anyone still had yeah i wonder you know it's just and it's also like super left guy you know like really politically connected to social justice ideologies fighting gun control i mean you know promoting gun control and thing for hillary and all this yeah it seems like over company i don't want to bring this up right up front that we're going to
about cuttlefish i asked you save the cuttlefish in an odd little comfort conversation about how it was just a little fish we were talking about it means all of these are just like incredible button topics but we talking before about your conversation on male and female programming in the mind on male and female biological right frames and what i was what i was going to to talk about there was that you can actually have in other species which aren't nearly as controversial as humans rational basis for something like transphobia in an evolutionary context so the giant cuttlefish which i think is called seppi apama i'm not a biologist um the mail
are incredibly large so they're very sexually dimorphic and you've got these tiny or smaller males who don't have a good strategy for keeping a lot of female underneath them where's the males are incredibly larger than males are incredibly large okay females tend to be much smaller okay when the females are impressed they except shelter underneath one of these giant to males but then you have these other males who aren't nearly as big which might be called sneaker males and the sneaker males start retracting the tentacles that identify them as male an changing through their chromatophores there's sort of their presentation to look female and then the joy males invite these mails disguised as females through behavioral change underneath and we
now proven i believe that these sneaker males inseminate the females well the a large hills are getting duped now are the larger males larger because they just have better genetics or are they larger because they're older well you know the question about better genetics key question as who leaves the lineages that matter overtime so if you're wasting all of your energi on a strategy and in fact what you're doing is you're providing protection for sneaker males to get busy with the females who seem to be equally happy to reward a devious mail as a strong one you know put in mind of the old willie dixon blues song i'm a back door man them in don't know but the little girls understand you know definitely females favor a variety of strategies whether
communicating strength and dominance cleverness or anything that females are likely to decide will benefit their offspring yeah that's a great name for him to sneaker males is not like the tactical mail it did long term for those small mills i i've seen it in lizards and i don't know the sepi apama giant cuttlefish system but i'm i'm obsessed with cephalopods i should probably go back and do some homework on them i didn't know he would be starting out with documenting harvey weinstein harvey weinstein giant yeah right find stein versus weinstein that's the difference i'm definitely keeping that yeah yeah that's a good distinction now right now yeah it's good yeah make a separation so cephalopods including cuttlefish octopus squids novelists and then they all sort of came from malik's right this is the craziest thing world right i mean we're not we're not during
need to meet an alien intelligence during our lifetimes but the idea that such genius exists in mollusks where you least expect it yeah is probably the closest we're ever going to get to aliens so i mean i think that it's sort of there's a secret nationals conspiracy people who have realized this and you know just freak out on south la pots and they know they know every crazy thing that self have been proven to understand and you know where their cognitive capabilities just sort of wow list the cognitive capabilities their camouflage capabilities that strategy they use for attacking bait fish and there's a that i put up on my twitter really recently of a cuttlefish that opens up like a flower and shoots it hang out gets this fish and then just sucks it into its body it's like you're looking
some kind of an alien its totaly in me i forget is seven fold symmetry or you know it's really on a different branch of the phylogenetic tree an i think that you know the dazzle patterns where you just start seeing these neon signs that are effectively made out of the chromatophores um if you've seen the videos where people put them on against like really artificial patterns like chess boards or hints or things and the cuttlefish has to figure out ok how do i blend in with that yeah yeah and they do their best to mock it but the the natural world they mimicked perfectly well not really i think octopus can do it some octopus can do it i think happens is that yeah that's i don't know that one i guess it's octopi i think what they do is they actually sort of do much less then we are imagining and they use the fact that
our brains are interpolated so their part not matching the background as well as we think there doing it well enough that our brains sort of make up the difference that's weird i mean what would be the difference in the way we interpret their their visual what whatever numbers are giving off because it's visual camouflage right yeah look at some of the some of the camouflage videos like the first seven times you see it you can't imagine yeah but then after after a while you say oh wow there really is a difference and somehow i just i did the interpolation to help out that which is trying to escape my detection well i mean there's definitely distinction you can kind of tell once you look at it but it's so insanely impressive in comparison to pretty much almost every the life form
you know what they can do in terms of like they could change their texture that's one of the like they when they sit on a coral reef and they start looking like a coral reef like whoa have you checked at the mimic octopus yes right so that one five or six different disguises i i can't even imagine that usually when you have mimicry it's dedicated or obligate like a you know a stick bug or a leaf insect only only do that one trick you know what to tools like i've heard a real legitimate argument for people that are opposed to eating animal protein that mollusks select clams and mussels and things on those lines are for more primitive in terms of their ability to recognize or have any any sense of what pain is any sort of communication any sort of interpretation end of danger that all they do is close right and that in closing we've interpreted that to being it's an animal and
animal life form is like it's like eating a living thing versus like eating plants but i've did you actually sam harris is the first one to bring it up is actually a moral argument that they sense less than plants do and that they more more there our primitive then plants are but yet from the mall it's family you have octopus and good argument that you probably be knocked of like you shouldn't be eating monkeys you know like an octopus is like crazy sneaky smart it's joe case they are delicious yeah i think if you ever look at humboldt squid
schooling in descending as one of the great nightmares of all time the only thing i've seen a humble square of the humble square and sometimes they forget they call them red devils or a feeling the coast of baja california and they're just social and there fine because they attack in groups so the planet or they coordinate in some way in some way i mean obviously the chromatophores must have some ability to do signaling and i think that you know with respect to what we have to figure out whether it's really intelligence that causes us to become empathic is that you know obviously war and you think highly of your enemy you have
to guard against your own empathy so that you can be effective warrior you have to ask the question you know if monkeys and apes are among the most intelligent beings that do i actually feel some revulsion for just how savage chimpanzees are as compared to say bonobos givens he is the real argument or they're the real fascinating conversation is what happened on the the evolutionary chain like why did but become it's peaceful sexual creatures and champs become these warring savage psychos like what it looks so similar like what happened that one i don't know but there's an interesting system in dung beetles where if you look at the arguments that they have on their head for warring between may
there is a conserved quantity between the length of the copulatory apparatus and the size of the weaponry so the more weapons the smaller the penises so you know they're all these crazy trade offs in apes between relative testicular size and people's size for gorillas right guerrillas have tiny little penises but enormous bodies giant fangs and little tiny one inch penises yeah i guess yeah an but she began seeing big penises and big testicles both yeah see says that panzies there's a direct correlation between promiscuous females and the size of their testicles i don't i don't remember that one but yeah the question about i also worry that we've we've idealized the bonobos too much and you know we were sort of it's very hard to be sympathetic
with the chimps after jane goodall showed us what their capable of right but in part you know that the cold logic of the natural world uh in general it's usually some reason that makes complete sense it's it can't be sentimental anytime you bring sentimentality and you usually screw up a good theory and so you know i i i i worry that are comparisons are driven by hiring needs to put to locate ourselves farther away from chimpanzees and closer to something that we were we feel comfortable so who are idealizing the bonobo's is not necessarily based on what they actually are but based on like our little sort of hippie van tion of life like look we could be like the but loving and sexual and affectionate or we can be
like the warring horrible horrible chimpanzees well you know it's also the case that how great does it feel to be sexual if you're being sexually out competed by others it's always fun fun to be you know los abbas and nature is different ways of punishing and rewarding status in achievement in in various dip in various different species so my guess is that there is a kind of concerts conserved you know unpleasantness and losing each particular game and they pleasure in winning each particular game that's essentially how keeps moving forward right yeah you know to the extent that you're wasting nrg
he warring when you could be being constructive very being more strategic a you're gonna get out competed by whichever members the of your species you know figure out the puzzle first and so i think that you know this this concept of the naturalistic fallacy of of viewing that which you know if you saw that we carry some sort of judeo christian baggage and all of this was thought to come from it the creator who was thought to have positive characteristics than well obviously the natural world is is god's work but i mean if you actually look at the systems that fascinate me the creator would have to be about the most twisted conscious consciousness you could possibly imagine well it seems like it's it's the long game the creators playing and the creators now playing the game that favors the health and welfare of the individual in the current day it's the matter of
figuring out how to get through this brutal game and advancing evolving along the way to the point where someday in the future you find a more complex it's involved system but you know is the most complex and involved this us you and me humans most complex and involved system in terms of its ability to change its environment that we've ever come across and we're not too happy with ourselves yeah although i mean i do think that despite our barbarism we are that which can contemplate the game and you know at some point you've obviously had my brother on the on the show i asked him as an evolutionary theorist brett what are you doing you know you're married to one woman you've had two kids as an evolutionary theorist don't you think you're throwing the game and his response i think brilliant it was and tell me eric if you understood the game why would you want to continue to play it
i'm right so for him it was almost like a sort of proof that if you really get you know and that's another one of his good quotes is that life when properly understood is a spelling bee that ends in genocide that we're also focus on nucleotide sequences do you really care about the particular way in which you did digest lactose different from how i do it that you want to go to war with me so do you we can spell the future using your version rather than mine like maybe you'd you'd feel this way about your ideas about you know your songs here your stories but really you really want to fight over like things that neither of us care i don't follow look what what he's saying well if you're trying to think about like i want to leave seven children right okay why do you want to do that
well because i want to see more copies of myself well you will see a certain number of copies of yourself but that's going to get diluted very quickly by the time we get to your great great grandchildren it's going to be hard to see yourself in your offspring so that's sort of an illusion of one generation to generation's most of the things that are going to determine your jeans propagating have to do with the fact that you're on a team there are a bunch of people who digest milk the way you do and so the key question is you know team rogan on the milk digestion is some huge number of people you've never met that's what i understand why i don't understand the connection to milk digestion i it's just one thing your body is doing in a particular way uhhuh so you know you like let's take eye color maybe that's worth okay so you know i know that i have a blue allele that is being suppressed in terms of its expression do i really care that you know my wife has two brown alleles
does it matter to me that my blue somehow survives do i care that i wanted to survive enough against some brown eyed person be interesting if you had a checklist of like what things that you would agree upon like you and the wife get together and say ok so we do this better than ability what do you think you know who side we go on with intelligence your little are the they going to give it to you let's go with let's go with your brain yeah i'm better at smelling things like how do you know i've just taken allergic to cats let's have none of the kids fucking sneeze every time they go near a litter box was the great thing let's just flip a coin yeah let's do it a couple of times and whatever we get we get yeah i worry about you know crispr cas nine people are going to be having these like trade you this for that we're going to have crazy yeah i'm fascinated by crisper i mean most people aren't even aware of it people like you of course are they're paying attention are but i think to the general because no idea the crisper even exists and it's potentially
world changing when you literally looking at the tools that will eventually lead much like you know alexander graham bell's invention led to you having the internet in your pocket right slowly but surely you're looking at the tools that will one day lead to us engineering some complete new organism that you're going to call human beings yeah it's going to be a long time off the thing alexander graham bell was along time off and then i think well i bet it's less time than that ok when was that was at one thousand eight hundred what are the odds two thousand and seventeen to the late 1800s you don't in two thousand one hundred and seventeen we're going to behave fuckin' incredible hulks and thor's and women click wonder woman this is going to be a single troll like looking person left in the
i think we're going to be able to do a lot of yeah i think we're going to be able to do a lot more combinatorics of swapping something in that's known to work and swapping something out but we actually get to like authorship were like ok i got this great idea for a human being right i'm going to start from scratch there's a there's a lot of optimism that for which i am the pessimist you know uploading the mind to a computer you pass a lot of kurzweil's ideas yeah well not in the sense that we're never going to get anywhere close there's this four thousand and forty five that's what they're welcoming for
yeah i'm optimistic about certain things that turned out to be a lot easier than we expected i think that a lot of things that are we thought were going to require artificial general intelligence are going to succumb to much simpler systems and so you might have thought that for example if you played through the great chess games of the 1800s like morphine anderson and things you might say well that's just a uniquely human activity and then you find out no no here's can trounce humans at the chest because it's not it wasn't what you thought it was maybe music will be the next thing to succumb because that's really highly regular right for music is also intensely creative and emotive right it it sparks feeling in humans and i don't think you could really i don't know maybe you could but i don't think you really could figure out a way to
engineer or have a computer engineer something that makes you feel like led zeppelin the immigrant song you know there's just like bizarre feeling to someone's art that through when you listen to it you like oh this fucking great you know like where i i don't necessarily know you could do that with and it doesn't understand emotions or is using a replica of emotions where is chess you know you know a rook move this way pawn can move that way here's the rules this is how it starts this is what once you get here you're in check like those things seem pretty straight board you're dealing with squares it's very mathematic you know one person moves another one moves where like there's like it's fluid nature to art literature and music and comedy other half of that i think i disagree really yeah i mean so i don't know why you
is the immigrant that that's like a lot it's on to them you know why because i'm gonna go to cryotherapy after this that's a song when i was a do he has since been in development the hammer of the gods which is a good song so if we if you taken if you taken roy orbison's pretty woman ok right so have the main riff from that song yeah i'd like to move one in down the stream over the room like do the comma her dark after right with the riff is like do do do do do do do do do do it it it it it it it so if you start guitar string and you split it into four equal parts and put your finger over one slash four of the string and then you start just plucking the string and hovering above the string so you don't actually push it to the fret board those notes occur naturally as the harmonics in the
mission of the vibrating string so that those notes were not really chosen by roy orbison or whoever wrote the song they were really chosen by like a fourier series feels like it's a riff but over this when i was in indonesia as i would start playing that and people would react i thought like why that song about more complex creative and sort of improvisational song like voodoo child from hendricks so i don't know about voodoo child from one hundred pound nine five i mean well you take care now and it changes up so i can if you look at the first couple of chords of red house there's like some seventh or diminished chord i don't like his arpeggiate now and then he moves it down one slash two step which has to do with this tritone substitution and the symmetry inside
the seventh chord so if i recall correctly you have a cord like see e g b flat would be a c seven court and the key and they be flat would form this thing called a tri tone and now if you went in the blues either three elements of the chord progression the dominant subdominant and the tonic if you go down a half step you effectively invert the third in the flat seventh us of you go one half step below that it's the flat seven from the third i think of the subdominant chord so hendrix is actually playing with math in something as basic as do you think he's aware of it or do you think he's doing it sort of just instinctual well first of all visited by an alien intelligence we went through cuttlefish now we've got jimi hendrix so it yeah that's like the these are the best
alien sightings we have right it's very hard to speculate but i just looked at everything i've been able to understand about what he did you know you're dealing with a super mind as well as an intuitive genius mastery of the instrument complete you're standing of the chords and progressions and just the ability to improvise and to make it sound different adding the wah wah pedal and all that distortion another show that he said and the fact that he imparts more into one note like i wouldn't even know how to notate what is even the instrument you play the guitar he played the guitar amplification signal processing system as a whole yeah so you know there are these people who are just in some
two dimensional space another one of my favorites is a guy named roy buchanan who somehow these guys who understand harmonics gravitate to telecasters and you know song called roy's blues and watch him just go into the multiverse and start playing with things that you can't even imagine are are possible so i i do think that that the there's a very close relationship between algorithms and emotion and i just did this one for an old tweet of mine where i wrote a python pro ram that actually runs from the tweets of the entire program is in the tweet and its purpose is to generate the chord progression for pocha bells canon which is if you want people to cry at a wedding that's the chord progression to play and so the idea that it's actually an algorithm
the breaks your heart it is very frightening just what do you know what some say insane noise in the background here folks are doing some to our roof this is the last day days that were in the studio by the way which is hilarious that it's highlighting why we need to get the fuck outta here i don't know what they're doing this too i mean does it even rain anymore while they do it fixing the roof put a fuckin' tarp up their assholes i even asked me right before the show is like what time do you tape i told him he's like oh well that's right about the time we're letting explosions right above your head sorry for people listening to this like with the puck is that noise that's the noises they're banging around the roof pinned down by enemy fire yeah well i mean i think it's also me as a as a human i probably have some bias some stoop idea that create if it is impossible to recreate you know that whatever it leads to a person being able to make some
beautiful song or create some amazing book is impossible or some sort of a computer to figure that out on its own well if you i would go ahead and hang out in a modern recording studio and watch them move the beat around and mutated and change it or if you think about like that moment where share said hey i think auto tune should be used to correct my voice in a sly way i'm going to use this as the instrument itself right and suddenly this metallic voice uhm actually isn't becomes an anthem when you start robo share is incredibly inspiring do you remember peter frampton he was like one of the first guys use it in a song do you feel like i do well so use that that thing with his we had a tube in his mid so he's really actually using his body to shape he's using the just like this five dimensional lattice in your in your mouth to
use the international phonemic alphabet so your your nose could be on or off that's one degree of freedom they have vocalization on or off hope station meaning you can have your vote like f f as in frank versus v as in victory they're the same mouth right but well you just vibrating it through it so you can have those nasalization off vocalization so is in the throat somewhere frank you fucking boomer like this s versus z would be another pair ok so the sound that you're making with with your throat right and you have like your lips and one of three positions so that's a third degree of freedom then you're
tongue can be in one of five positions and it can be fully elevated half elevated or not elevated at all so there's like five parameter family that generates what's called the international phonemic alphabet and you know one of the cool things to think about is how could you create an instrument that naturally allowed you phonemic productions that you're not just doing these you know simple ringing tones well there's got to be a way to dis recreated physically right the just make an artificial head i mean you just made an artificial head with i mean it's not like we do something that's impossible to recreate with a robot ok but like in terms of if you take the collection of all major instruments what comes closest to human voice a lot of people it's the indian violin called the sarong guy really yeah you never check that out
damn what's a sarong a sarong is like a between to drown out the pounding on the roof we'd win a surround i've never heard of a sarong guy sounds bad assets strange violent is a strange violence a lot of sympathetic strings and you know because of you can power into a note if you if i have a guitar and pluck a string i'm just going to get decay unless i drive the sound right but if i oh wow look how cool that thing looks yeah wow louder wow just try to imagine like a lot of those are sympathetic strings so they ring when you hit the tone perfectly now
so if you've never gotten into north indian classical music this is today's your lucky day this is really cool wow looking thing that it has three strings yeah my guess i mean i don't recall but very can you only turn it beat up amazing like rom ryan on this thing he was like the ultimate others of ultimate goddess and the surrounding i'm learning almost died and almost died out it almost done yeah i think it was like it was used for gazal singing and courtesans used to play with a gazal singing goes like this type of of song to be popular in what would now be pakistan in northern fifty i decided to check this dude out
remember zamfir master of the pan flute have those late night ads that that should died off quick huh i am that old pan flute thing really never caught on this is way better than the pan flute i think this guy is groupies i know he does does he teach yoga to seems like you would well so you see the drums on the left yeah so that's the hubler and the by on and that is the you know i think many people would north indian drumming to be the world's most advanced rhythmic system really yeah even even more than africa the speed of articulation goes at the speed of speech and if you take the hindi verb to speak bolna they have the system that they call the bowls
to speak the bowls is to say what you would instruct your hands to do if you were playing the drums well look at him i've heard sounds like this before for sure like uh fan of dollar mandate high wendy's music ok get some cool music and he this kind of shift in the background a lot do you know he is right i do not you don't know dollar mendez should what is this song the big famous song things called tunak tunak tune it's really a badass song it's i really love music but i don't know what they're saying and i i enjoy that because just like you just kind of get a feel for the song you have no idea what the actual words where they could be totally corny yeah you know see if you can
find something like speaking the bowls for tabla and you'll see these guys doing this thing where they do doug deduct it didn't cricket tonight at the doctor you know what they do is that they create with their mouths everything that their fingers would do with their hands so they connect that song that song that was just playing but totally cut off this is it this is him get got a badass had no idea what he's saying larry hilarious music video to the music is like is any virus it's him against him in this video but he got arrested for like white slavery well that's yeah
hello arrested jesus what it was for like sex trafficking or something like that some kind of sleeve trap it sex slave trafficking or something like that he was a part of some i don't know maybe he just pist off the wrong guy in india and i guess they fucking with with should charge you never know you know we're she's like that they can get away with a lot of shit what is it brother just died i guess oh it's taking over the news on his thing anyway sorry so what does that does drums called again often just called tableau but tablas the sort of soprano drum and then the by on i guess you play with sort of the heel of your hands you strike it and go boom boom and i think that you know the world's best practice
this guy lives in marin county now really soccer hussein who is the child of allah rocker who is like the bad of his time and it's one of these things where i think you sort of have to be born almost into the family to have this past down how do you know all this this is something you've studied for a long time there is an amazing book by any meal sorel that i picked up in college and i just opened it up and it went through an entire performance of indian called north indian classical music and i was just you know my my job was on the floor house there this in higher form of classical music much closer to our jazz so much more impressive i mean visually to watch these drummers and one of these soloists like the soloist will try to
lose the drummer in the drummers got these mirror neurons that can't be beaten they'll just like follow him everywhere and so you just you know your some poor white kid in america say nobody told me this existed yeah it's really weird how we just choose like a certain series of instruments that represent rock and roll certain series of insurance or represent jazz you know it's really it's strange when you think of the the the wall wide range of musical instruments that exist all over the world that are just never utilized in modern music yeah and i do think that uh we've become too complacent we should be like ian anderson with jethro tull why if you the flute solo and locomotive breath that'll get me every damn time why didn't they couldn't take it off yeah you know the clarinet was lossed to jazz used to be
incredibly dominant instrument and coming out of like the klezmer tradition you know it rocked and then it sort of became this non thing and at some point i saw god tony scott who was like the last great clear madison jazz who went off to japan to study zen for years and he came back for a birthday concert he blue dizzy gillespie and benny carter off the stage i just think like i forgot clarinet can be the kick acid yeah most people think of it as something you're forced to take in high school yeah but fundamentally that's that's where like the uke the ukulele come back like crazy the ukulele was a mexican instrument that was reduce to hawaii right is not working as i think it was it but it guarantees it's a big ng in in hawaii right that's into the ukulele yeah i think you came over with cattle ranchers i think
was introduced to hawaii by people who all over like cowboys like if i remember i might be butcher in the story forgive me my hawaiian friends but i think what it what it was was he had introduced cattle at some point in the history of hawaii and when they introduced cattle there like hey how do you keep these fucking things from wandering all over the place so man we gotta find some cowboys we just had to do this ship and they that was either mexican or south american cowboys to come over and show them how to wrangle these cows how to corral them how to take rhythm and then when they did these cowboys came over and introduced the ukulele e which is really kind of you know the hawaiian in art in america when we think about it you know like a sound of like the we we sort of think about that's like my daughters musician and when why hawaii i got a ukulele you you know and she plays it we think about it
in a lot of people's eyes like a lot of like what we think of is asset hawaiian music is played with the ukulele yeah so i think i thought that he thought it was i thought it was like a porch google they lay like jumping flea so why in name of portuguese instrument what's that that's a wikipedia says they distributed to three portuguese immigrants and eighteen eighties that developed it from three other guitar like instruments from portugal because write a quick cover keynotes that's the origin of the ukulele e but how did it get to hawaii as they were in hawaii they were in a why those guys were in the white house of the product wide as the very guys made its way like a pds says there's nothing we can i'll brian towns my brother and i have some weird is that i don't really have to is awesome
i just love the fact there's a lot of people just added it like anytime there's a podcast and something fuckedup happens you go to the person's wikipedia page now totally butcher it amazing thing is is that it works at all yes that's that is amazing right it is amazing i never would have guessed that yeah right some user edited thing that sort of what using also there's only one snopes you know there's only one like real well well regarded fact checking website like it was someone else they want to snopes that right i would yeah i wouldn't anymore yeah i'm distressful you'd stressed about distrustful distrustful of snopes well do you feel like they're left leaning or do you feel like they're just not necessarily one hundred percent honest or what do you think well or you think the guide lot of hookers and blow blow is not really pay attention sometimes the guys to history but it's fucking hilarious the guy he just shacks up with some
escort and she becomes the the main editor or going somewhere mtv branson i think the one i think that the iq needed to sort fact fiction at the moment is enormous the amount of money you'd need would be yeah right fantastic actually today with hashtag fake news so i am feeling like i'm witnessing the bye for whether any authority exists at all and the claim that you fact check has been synonymous with the fact that you're truthful which is total nonsense
if i accurately represent three people who were enough in a scene and i and i leave that to others and services that fact you know that that picture is fake as in none of these three people really where there is yes but you filter it out those other things going to get you can get to tell lies by leaving things out by insinuation i have this whole griffin frequently referred to as russell conjugation the other people call it motive conjugation so you know the difference between fink vs whistleblower is how i usually introduce this you have technically synonyms in english right not substitute one for the other yeah rat and whistle blower don't yeah well with whistle blowers the only
is usually one of the only because positive ones chelsea manning is a highly regarded rat x okay doesn't work the emotional state yeah and so you know that the like another thing is to get somebody proximate to something very disturbing so ben shapiro and i were in this article about how the alt right was outraged and we were like the two people cited neither would be outright you right jesus christ alright things are weird thing to define now it's a great game you have to appreciate what it is ok so if you trying to silence the very small number of people who are probably your guests uhm the right thing to do is to make sure that their proximate to lots of terrible stuff right so that people who too busy to sort things out so well i neither condemn nor condone because all your
trying to do is to model everything you need enough fear uncertainty and doubt in order to get the job done and so it doesn't matter that the article says in the banner headline alt right enraged and then the two people in a listed or like jews who opposed trump because when when those articles are parsed it shows up as well you were in a bunch of articles about the all right yeah okay so i get it you're really not paying it and the point isn't to inform the reader the point is to tag that that you wish to neutralize right and so it's working very well do people alright consider themselves alt right um or did they used to and we know it's become sort of a pejorative right so let's go through the the craziness here okay as soon that you are not a democrat right not a democrat might translate to
libertarian or republican republican translates to right of center right of transgender translates to right wing translates to far right translates to all right translates to white supremacist translates to neo nazi translates to not see right and so you have these very strange chains on the left where republican keeps eating into right because of this very weird things well you said you didn't vote democrat so i can i say you're right wing in your far right right you're basically all right she's just christ holy crap you just move somebody who's a country club republican into being a gestapo agent yeah and is alt right necessarily mean white supremacist or that they conveniently glue those two things together i think richard spencer
considers himself alright well i think he coined alt right so he did so you know the idea is white supremacy with a human face and a human face is supposed to wyler no he's turned is trying to change the is training come up with a friend version of nazi or white supremacists right and so it's level that was a disgusting collectible masterstroke but then alt right became the place you know a lot of people who are tired of being told what to think and who to be started blurring these distinctions so now you've got this frog and sometimes you put a hat on the frog from the nazi sometimes the trump at right and so the whole idea is like ok um for those of us who got used to those lines that we do not cross those are major transgressions uh
two other people there like why should there be a rule about a frog right and so you have this discussion where you have people with terrible insidious intent people who are just clowning around and everybody is mick in in a way that nobody can sort out right like the frog that check right yeah i mean if you really pay attention and i think there's been some sort of a study done and what percentage of the frogs actually used for you know donald trump or racism or alt right and what percentage of the frog is used just for a goof it's the majority is like feels good man type things the but like i've seen it sent too many nazi frogs during the election yeah right you know so that anybody could make one you make it not see and people have made that seems mickey mouse but you know we didn't use too there's still a lot of stick
around reproducing swastikas with the color scheme and the orientation of the third reich have you seen that the gay folks for what for a very short period time we're trying to call up the swastika enter until rainbow swastika take it back oh my gosh well it work when you go to india right you have swastikas pointing the other direction with dots in them and so if you come from an american yes you just triggered all his place up here there's a place in chats worth i believe that is in a very very old indian temple that has swastika and there's a large signed but it's not it's swastikas reverse swastika is a large sign explaining you know hey this is an ancient hindu symbol and we've had it for a long time and longer yeah i mean my my guess i haven't looked at the at the entomology but i would guess that swap comes from beautiful in in sanskrit or something and so you know the question about who
it is a symbol belong to and when is when is it bowl when is it you know that symmetry pattern i have no question that you might find that free pattern in nature you know in in like ninth century islamic art architecture some but you know the hexagon they found on top of jupiter you remember that the storm yeah what if a swastika could you imagine instead of an axe and there's a swastika on top of jupiter jesus christ you think is really take out jupiter saturn was it saturn jupiter have been saturn but there was some very bizarre pattern pattern that's very strange yeah but this uniform i it's like pretty close to an actual hexagon or so yeah but isn't it is very weird that we get so wrapped up in symbols
in symbols are so huge for us yeah but but they are efficient tions formation information know you know and then you lose you know a symbol like you can lose the name um you know like dick i just called her kids dick in gay right yeah yeah it used to be gay old time the flintstones had a gale time that was one of the last uses of gay in that my grand father claimed that the emotion of gaiety was lossed with the word he claimed that there was actual an emotion that went with it i don't when actually experiences anymore how about how we describe it that it this is sort of careless frivolity that it a certain sort of combination of like innocence tinged with a little bit of mischief like sexual mischief really anyway you know so
become aware of words that open up new territories like the concept of sinnock in thai lots of people go through thailand come back and they need the word sin which is the quality of fun that something has to have in order for it to be worth doing like did you pay your electrical bill no why there was no sin in it so that that was like it's a concept or quits but you know coming right yet issue or in a turkish has yucca mows which is the trail of light left on the water by the moon right and so one you have a word for yah camaz it's very hard now to use it even though nobody in an english speaking context knows about it just with the word selfie if you recall when that came and we'd seen all these weird pictures of like ladies and
you know restrooms taking pictures of themselves in the mirror and you're like what the hell is that yeah somebody says oh that's a selfie like got it yeah right and then suddenly that word was everywhere so once we get the the symbolic compression that goes with the concept we become pretty dangerous as a friend is so stupid she has known selfie means so she takes she put uses uses selfie and somebody else takes the picture yeah i've been told her she didn't have a fucking camera in her hand and she standing there with her hands on her hips i would love to joke with you but i have definitely used that selfie i've thought selfie when it's not a selfie at all i mean it's just her picture of self maybe she set up the camera maybe i'm the right is it a selfie if you the timer on the camera and the step back season
suck me i'm an asshole that helmet questions of our she's right i'm wrong maybe she's gotta maybe if you this ever husband that's so dumb will just sit around take pictures of you so you could put it on instagram mean you basically programmed monkeys all you have a program monkey that will take pictures to extend itself exactly yeah yeah if you if you shoot a pheasant and you have a dog that will fetch that bird and bring it back to you still shut the bird a pheasant yeah yeah do you know how they do that yeah hey you you flush the birds out with dogs the birds go up in the should now the shot gun the bird to the ground the dog get it brings it back to you but you shot it yeah that's why they only come retrieve or something yes exactly exactly we're learning a lot of let's let's just go over all we covered no no quiz but they howard why we're moving 'cause it's a fucking earthquake going on on the roof
indian music cephalopods sneaker mail sneaker sneaker males yeah i didn't know so many i didn't know about it's not like a common thing though like everybody kind of knows that's what a lot of male feminists are they like sneaker mail still sliding in closer to proximity to the females by you know by i to too sort of espouse some ideals that they think would be more attractive to the females because they don't find them in nature yeah and then the problem is that the ovulatory window comes along and suddenly there's a desire for something completely different and they go out some biker right immediately things like what happened i don't know it was strangely appealing yeah step fuckin' gene pullman the god dam genetics they've got us yeah but it is really amazing how we are conscious
and we're we're aware of all these issues that we deal with but yet we're still we're still at the it first it's a certain stand at the whim of these genes of these these polls that we have inside of us he has like the argument that people was make for why some people find like assistance living like those shows in alaska so oddly comforting you ever see those shows you're really close to the environment that brought yeah like alaska the final frontier yes see that show that folks just live up in there absolutely related to that woman jewel do you know that beautiful singer jewel remember it's amazing voice and she is related to those folks that live in alaska and have this show where they i mean they live without phuc up there with nobody around them there are literally in just bombs nowhere alaska i do that it's oddly comforting i'd love
those shows i don't know why i love those shows well i really do i think you might i could see you doing that deliver like that now now i'd like to do in little bursts yeah i enjoy a movie theater sir i like highway i like to drive cars i enjoy television i like a cookie in a home okay i like doing that i like sitting down with electricity i like all the trappings of civilization but i do enjoy going to nature i've no desire to be a trapper in you you know flying around a bush plane landing places and checking my steel traps for minks and stuff yeah those are the folks is that her in there obviously i think super old picture of it is she one of 'em is she the girl with the red sweater yeah i forget the name of the family killed kilcher yeah i think that is it yeah but i mean these fucking people they make their own houses up there i like that
and somehow another she escaped notice problems in venice now someshit my arch nemesis is this guy garrett lisi who lives in maui oh yeah why you guys arch nemesis is you don't have one i don't think so you should totally get one what are they good for you well first of all lots of billionaires forgotten to have an r nemesis you go to movies about arch nemesis i don't know i pluralize but it's like it's definitely these things almost nobody has in your art this has to be somewhat like you so you know like there is tension that there should only one of now see i'm not in there should only be one guy i'm a tribal guy yeah i'm i think you should gather up as many people that are like you and support each other well
you do end up supporting your economics you keep each other going right all right and in some sort of way right yeah i mean you definitely we definitely need some sort of competition i definitely believe that so my arch nemesis took me out into the jungles of northern maui i thought so really we wondered yeah you know you have an anime and he says hey man you wanna go hiking bro i was down for because i just thought look i'm not sure that he's the one is coming back right anyway we can go out on this trail and we're visiting this phd mathematics in the jungles and it is without question the most mosquito ridden place i've ever been married yeah it's just available now yes incredible reinforced incredible and we
along this trail and we went in hike like a mile or two in and this guy has built shangri la he's taking this river and he's always been there for like twenty thirty forty years forty years has it's like a phd in differential geometry differential geometry lives into this amazing durian tree if you you know yeah we damascus fruit durion is that yeah that's not stinky fruit right why would you do that 'cause if you've ever had great durian it's one of the great pleasures of life really oh my god so it stinks but it tastes good yeah it's like limburger cheese ok that's a good analysis so anyway this guy who's built this like sala terry world that nobody is watching the performance for one and it's like this naturally sculpted um wonderland that
lives in with all these mosquitoes that he doesn't notice anders during trees we can do mathematics bodies not know some this is because you are in their entirety yeah while we can you can't focus on that yeah convert thirty or he needs to get one of those therma cell's ever seen those things oh there amazing yeah if you go to anywhere where the mosquitoes are particularly aggressive 'cause like have you go to alaska alaska one thing about alaska that's fantastic is the mosquitoes are rabid rabbit they're like pitbulls bulls my nre went fishing in alaska and i am not exaggerating in there now we didn't we sprayed ourselves up with fucking chemicals probably took a year off my life but when you step the car i mean when we open and look at that that's like legitimately what it's like we open
shut the door to the car an within three to five seconds there was one hundred mosquitoes inside the car it's fucking insane because they're only alive for like a month right it's only warm enough for them to exist for short period of time so insanely aggressive so anyway this product called therma cell that outdoors people use and what it is is it's like a small yeah that looks like a large square like piece of gum or something like that and you slide this blue pad under this screen and then you ignite it by pressing a button this little heating element goes off and it has like a little fuel canister that keeps this very tiny fire it immensely small you have to look in see if it's lit right it's it's not a fire it's like uh this element is heating up this fuel it takes a long time to go through a small canister but it emits this very fine mist and this missed will keep
a like an eighteen square foot get out window text mom i never goes dude it is impossible to be in the outdoors with it without it rather once you've had it i found about it from my friends in alberta they they turn me on about it they live in alberta in the same thing in alberta the mosquitoes are super super aggressive 'cause it's only warm enough for them to exist for short period time i'm so glad i did this show food a therma cell is amazing and you can strap him to your hip you just put one on right there and you don't even smell it but the mosquitoes don't want to have nothing to do with it they just keep them they try some like really they give up i mean it's amazing it makes a in the woods incredibly bearable a meet my daughters wanted to camp in the backyard one night there was bugs out there and i said i got the solution when i got my thermacell let that sucker put it there everybody is out out cold sleeping just no problems at all bugs and civilians can purchase if you
it's not it's not toxic okay thank but it's super easy to use that's it right there yeah but thanks that blue thing in the top that's a piece of the therma cell the chewing gum looking stuff these slide under that screen and when it gets used up that blue thing becomes all white it's so easy to use math like go to like come chukka just to try it out they have a large one there that looks like a lamp see that one that looks like a lamp up there fuckin' dude those things are push it as i hate mosquito therma cell is the way to go i'm i don't like google the negative consequences you see that see that one he's got like pouches on side of the container and one power chewed like you're a little extra fuel canisters on the other side you probably have some of those little extra therma cell pads but one thing one of those little blue things last like eight hours so i mean one of the great question some of the most beautiful land in a place like maui
is mosquito written yeah and so that work could you change the land value burnham all the time and i don't know if it's something you want to breathe in all the time okay yeah i just don't i don't know enough about negative consequences but i've used them a entre times and they've never even give me a headache or anything find out of whatever zend thermos cell is like say for long term exposure says you're not supposed to use in a confined space okay there is some sort of stuff you're obviously breeding in yeah for sure but herman known remiss in paramus n i don't know nothin you know i have a bass this before but when we were kids and read comic books but like radiation they always helped people turn people into fuckin' superheroes yeah never hear that in real life yeah you have to get lucky and get like some home iotic mutations so you've got like yeah arms coming out of your head never does anything good no no not well meditations and bugs really cool yeah and bugs but i mean in
in human beings like but i guess the chinese experimented with that yeah that was the thing about crisper that's going to bring up earlier for sure they're doing that right there making humans yeah i mean that's the thing about like having s ethical moral stance on the use of something like crispr to genetically alter fetuses yeah that if you do that you really if if you have an opposition to altering embryos like that's immoral it's not do not a beating heart o s here with the problem they already passed that the russians don't give a funk about that you see that movie icarus no god damn you to see that movie i had bryan fogel on last week who is the director and producer of this documentary on the doping the russians sponsored doping program russian stone hey dude they don't play
they had a state sponsored doping program that was kind of over seed by putin like down the line like the direct chain of command the whole entire russian team is sochi was on drugs all of a the guy who engineered the whole thing like the main scientist is in the united states now under protective custody in hiding and putin is trying to dragon back to russia by stealing the the comes from his family stealing his wives home turn him into homeless people in some of to get him to sacrifice himself to come back for the health and safety of his family remember what happened when saddam did that it didn't workout so good yeah cell phone video that's when you know you locked up the cell phone in video footage of your execution so that's the doms execution but i think he learned his son and his son in law's back like don't worry it's all forgiven the sudden loss came back and they really was the yes and i was pretty skilled in
this is a difference to a situation that none of the self i mean if that would that was a very strange situation because he actually was the only guy was like his together when he was being yeah he understood the game he accepted the yeah it's like right but so he's probably like jesus christ how many people die kill i guess i think after you've killed yeah people you probably like i probably deserve it yeah i'm going well did you ever seen that christopher hitchens narrating the original bath party i don't know what to call it theatrical video where like half the bath party was called out as being revealed and then the other half of the bath party was giving given sidearms with which to execute them making them complicit in the founding murder and there was all i'm aware of this but i didn't know the christopher hitchens narrated it well he
something where he he brought it to prominence i think i was aware of it with just arabic and i couldn't tell was going on and then he actually said ok look you have to appreciate well this is a topic that i think it would be good to talk about i don't know that i've ever talked about it but message violence is the glue that keeps a lot of societies together and we don't study it or talk about violence that is specifically construct to be theatrical um like public beheadings lonely man yeah that would be it kind of message violence or for example forcing families to pay for the ammunition with which there members were executed to make them complicit and emphasize their weakness all of this stuff that the mind goes to horror movies
to explore is often used structurally particular in the middle east so you know isis for example the jordanian pilot video which i find that many people haven't seen the
whole point of it was that the pilots were raining down death into particular forms rubble and fire when people in the ground and isis captured one of the jordanian pilots and decided that they would theatrically execute him with a version of exactly these two things that he was meeting out from the air and so the whole point of it was to create the cinematic imagery um to see her into people's mind what it meant to oppose isis that isis was in fact just in this sort of i for an eye kind of way and you know my belief is that we don't understand the role that message violence plays in part because
now denying it if you think about vietnam we have all of these images that were burned into all of our minds with pulitzer prize winning photographs but in the modern era you don't have images like that from like because there was a there was a decision that we could not afford in some sense to have the kind of opposition that we had to vietnam when people suddenly said wait a minute you're doing what in my name there's an issue that is always puzzled me and this issue is people lean left will they consider themselves progressives have very distinct very obvious bias against criticizing islam criticizing islamic terrorism criticizing islam suppression of women you know the criticizing these cultures right under
for the guys of not wanting to promote islamophobia and things along those lines always wondered how much of what that is is a fear of reprisal of speaking out against them is terrifying so what they do instead is embrace the the cultural differences that these people exhibit concentrate instead on the positive aspects of their community and the good things about muslim culture and islamic culture and not really does not bring it up at all like you we very rarely hear people on the left talk about how oppressive and horrific some of the conditions that women and homosexuals are forced to live in in in muslim cultures always wondered if that's what that is like there's a feat because no one in modern hey no i don't ideology is more brutal in the reprisal i mean they kill apostates right to kill people who
if you join you can join no one stop right the whole idea of a spread islam is that you should be proselytizing you should be getting people join because it is the only truth is the only way to go but once you do you're in thank you do not how to leave first of all let's actually do this one i think it's important but they didn't start that we jews started this so far as i know so the you tyler no no no no we don't we don't proselytize but the once you're in you're in really yeah if you go iran to me i think i said something to the effect of if someone comes to you and says hey let's worship gods not known to the fathers set upon with the stone before anyone else gets there what are you supposed to do that to someone who is already converted to if you're in if you're if you're in and somebody says hey let's go worship other gods you're supposed to kill him what if the interesting so
so it's an old idea it's an old idea and it's not in islamic idea it's a jewish idea in my opinion ok but it does exist today primarily so i asked my rabbi about this and she and she said yahoo email rabbi you progressive motherfucker you look at you know i have actually i like it proud of this i have a rabbi who happens to be female okay she born female or is them she's all woman all rabbi allegedly they're all women caitlyn jenner is all how many incendiary topics do you want to know let's just turn everything up to eleven i do ok come on man i'm a comedian alright i don't have a boss in three minutes i'm about to be a target ok your note female rabbi so
point was yeah we don't execute anybody because in in effect that portion of the code never runs so the jews have figured out how to have bad code that is permanently inoperative if i could stop you there for a second one of the unique things about jews is that there are so many jewish people that i know that still can did themselves jewish but are almost totally atheist yeah like my friend ari he was doing this video recently where are this podcast recently was we were doing this challenge where we can't drink or smoke pot or do anything for a month and we have to do fifteen hot yoga classes and he's going crazy and screaming during his podcast i am a jewish performer and i live in new york city i'm supposed to be doing drugs i'm supposed to be drinking i like drinking but he's he's the biggest atheist i've ever met in my life or if not an atheist he
certainly at the very least agnostic at the very least she's definitely not someone who considers himself a religious person but he was he was and he escaped the claws of it when he was young but it's jews many times think of them it's almost a tribe much is it is a religion like if you get down in and corner most jews that i know about like much of the time do you follow how much how much of the old testament do you think is legit how much of the the these these teachings do you think you're imperative for everyday living there's a vast majority i really don't want to have they're not connected to any i think if you met anybody following the old testament you wouldn't recognize them as a jew right right like we have to kill the apostates i used to live in an old ultra orthodox neighborhood in jerusalem and the i was writing on the sabbath my final list for leaving and the kids in the
next door started shouting in hebrew it is forbidden to write on the sabbath kill him and the parents had the concept knock it off like the ultra orthodox pairing so they wanted to kill you because you're writing because it was literally that's that was you know i was violating a bunch a little monsters now mom's is the word you're looking at the bastards anyway yeah so jews are big into observance but part of the relationship is you get to question things that are much deeper level than in most religion and you know i would say no six or seven rabbis well enough to ask the question about their belief structure none of them believe in the character of god from the old testament so how do they sort of rationalize the whole thing well that's the point is that you know you have layers of abstraction
and you know if you're really stupid for example do you believe that the supreme court is nine black robed super geniuses who can channel the original intent of the founding i think the wizards yeah ok just like wizard well then that's it i mean you there's a grown up way of loving your country and there's uh this way of loving your country and there's a grown up way of believing in your religion and childish one and the this one is like cats all literally but what is the grown up believing in a religion well i mean in part and it's got a lot of hidden instructions it's not resolved so that you have these sort of dialectical tensions that see if like ethical guidelines as opposed to like don't tell you down from on high and giant stone tablets well you know not kill but thou shalt
kill has to go up against an admonition to kill right right these things are not resolved and they are it may work swim back upstream to your original point about islam it will leave here before we do we leave israel or jews sure there's an end to this and i used to know it but i forgot it what is the reason why so many european jews have won nobel prizes so many european jews are insanely intelligent like is there you want the modern social justice answer it's because we cheated physics i don't want it answer it's a that's a silly answer no no no they're smart like why why are so many insanely intelligent people european jews um so it is hard for you to answer being a jew yeah a little bit like if you asked me ok well let's let's do a different one okay okay so
one thousand eight hundred and ninety seven ten one thousand nine hundred and eighty seven all of these different countries winning the boston marathon and then from nineteen eighty seven to the president basically two it's right kenya and ethiopia maybe a korean guy wins it or something um why is that well now you have this really uncomfortable thing is culture is that that those guys in east africa just have heart is it because they will the rent is to school every day twenty six miles people said that mentors at the take the bus like everybody else so there can be a genetic predisposition in trade off space if there can be a cultural premium so when you have the top marriage prospects you may turn them off to the to the richest or the smartest so in judaism there is some
good way in which intellectual prestige proxies for material wealth to if you is insanely smart not very rich it can be very prestigious to marry your your daughter let's say to that student of the torah so there are all sorts of cultural strange aspects of this is because money lending was prescribed forbidden to christians that this particular facility with mathematics was highly selected for when no he also was selecting for it you know i don't know what the answer is but i do know that um like in my case getting a ph in mathematics is an ivy league education for that were in on my brother's case giving up an ivy league education to make a point standing up for social justice these are sort of self destructive things in my
cultures standing up for social justice against social justice warriors will not allow in his in his one thousand nine hundred and eighty seven he stood up because uh jewish fraternity was using black strippers for sexual entertainment to lower in incoming freshmen and he said okay this is you know this is some sort of class oriented thing more works eating this is a different situation i don't know so he had to leave penn university pennsylvania under death threats wow so this is the great irony of my brothers situation is that people don't know who your brother brett weinstein is a weinstein harvey weinstein bret weinstein right brett was the guy that was the part of the whole evergreen college fiasco he's been on this podcast twice i'd suggest if you're interested you could either
girls name and get the story from a multitude of sources or listen to the original podcast where he sort of laid it out it was before the settlement with the college before he wanted leaving ann you know i really hope that he goes the jordan peterson route meaning that he starts putting up these pictures and some of these ideas that he has just putting them up online may just putting videos up and you know i know he's got a patreon page now correct yeah and that which is great way to do it too but jordan is making more money from doing that than he ever did from college yeah for teaching university i want to support you know the other thing is that we have to make the case because he can't because it will look wrong right higher this month yeah i heard that mother yeah and he's amazing he's a straight up genius i have a recommendation for him from his old adviser who i think you know said he's the top stew
in forty years of advising and just we have to recognize that if you want this stuff to stop you have to make it not pay to drive super smart people who are courageous enough to be open in their thinking and his shirt i'm sorry could you go yeah and you know to share their thoughts and fundamentally if we drive these people to extinction it's on us and so my question is hey university of chicago harvard princeton stanford where are you yeah i mean people are terrified of repercussions right side of the they think that he's a he's a guy from evergreen state so he's lower rank you know let me let me use my tiny mega to say he's not lower rank he's on believable believably smart
look at his work on elongation of tila in laboratory animals where he predicted what nobel laureate carol greider found from first principles that the mice that are being used to test our drugs have wildly exaggerated telomere here giving them amazing capacities is the logical repair button pop possibly putting drugs to market that shouldn't be there this is somebody you want to be taking intellectually serious and stop treating us like the clown act that they're running and this just happens to be a evergreen college is an amazing example of what can go wrong if you let these crazy children sort of dictate the way human beings are allowed to behave and the way this course takes place on campus to the cliff notes what i was going to say they wanted to have a day of absence they traditionally had day of absence where people of color would take the day off to school for where people would miss some sort of like didn't
you know that in la day without mexicans was a movie right it was shut down just tell you right now ls shuts down without mexicans mexican to butt but instead of doing that the social justice warrior mentality that thinks that every white man is some sort of an oppressor and you need to figure out a way to eradicate them from the world they decided to the opposite route enforce white staff and white students to stay home your brother rightly protest saying that is inherently racist like what you're proposing is is anti racist yes he's and and the problem is is that the diversity movement which is now become the equity movement is actually racist racist against white people i mean i only want to say it's wrong race in a racism against white it's openly racist reverse reaction there is either racism or knowing racism that whole proposal that ray
is it against white people as reverse racism let's just hope this is a cult in the way you know that it's a cold is you ask for the definition of race system and if somebody tells you its power plus prejudice and therefore certain groups can't be racist because they have no power that's how you know somebody's in the cult because if you look at in the dictionary it doesn't say anything like that another one would be gender has nothing to do with sex go to the ox this dictionary look at the difference between 3a a three b gender and sex have been closely tied and sometime in like the nineteen 40s couple of fields in the u s started using gender to be behavior sex to be you know that which is your dedicated genotype phenotype what is going on is that these people are change the definition of words in order to push a cult into the exact swear it must not go it must not go
in the diversity office it must not go in hr you cannot have this openly racist openly sexist called in the place where it the which is the immune system yeah so that's that's that's the key thing is is that we're used to thinking of our immune system as being there to protect us but if you think out an autoimmune disease it's when your immune system starts attacking the self that you're in real trouble so learn the signs and learn the tells you don't have to sign up for jordan peterson postmodernism just ask somebody whether black people can be race it's against whites and as soon as you hear power plus prejudice you know you're talking to as soon as you hear the gender and sex have nothing to do with each other right recourse to dictionaries and you start talking about the history and somebody starts well that's your white fragility as your white privilege why are you in denial why aren't you accepting allyship
ok so suddenly it's like ok z new in the volcanoes in the clams again yeah it is yeah it is and well one great evidence about that was this whole google memo thing the google memo thing the difference between what that guy actually wrote on the memo and what was published in so many different publications somebody different on my website it's just yup libelous like that guy if i know he's going to sue google but he could probably sue a host of people once he's done with that 'cause they changed what he wrote turned him into this horrible evil sexist person to the point for the ceo of goo too brother was saying that she she read it and it made her sad at the whole thing meter sample he wrote up a peace based on why people of different genders are more inclined to gravitate towards specific things he made an error how was the error that he made was that he used a reserved term neuron
system the big five personality inventory where it is a reserve term denoting particular psychometric and so and then saying men are less conscientious than women women are more in the reason women are more neurotic i actually brought that up with that he regretted it did bring that 'cause i told him i said that's my only criticism like that's a draw tori term but again you know i had not quite remembered the big five personality inventory you know is openness conscientiousness extraversion agreeableness and neuroticism but you know when you see something that careful i mean most people just didn't read it they went with like the headline right so that's the first thing you should guess somebody that smart is probably using a turn if i say moral hazard to you and you don't know economics you're going to think oh wow what is the moral hazard that like reefer there's nothing to do it that's a reserve turn right so if i keep talking about rent seeking or moral hazard and i'm talking about landlords
you know or somebody offering your kid to do be after school right right right so so that was like the first intellectual failure i i just have been dealing with this where i talk about power laws in statistics which is a particular type of probability distribution somebody says she's the power powerful people in our country are so protected and privilege why don't we why do we need laws to protect them like what you said power law like that has nothing to do with there used to be this character on saturday night live and whose name was emily litella played by gilda radner and they bring her in she was hard of hearing them what's all this
i hear about the death penalty the death have problems enough as it is and that should refer to minutes in the death penalty and that's entirely different never mind so she was trying for that remember my limbs on television classical music killer radner was awesome she was on roseanne i resented diana you couldn't do any of this stuff and more you couldn't you really couldn't yeah but it's dumb selling back to the more thing yeah okay checking our tree and it's exploding here the thing about what he did was he was trying to write a pro diversity memo if you lie about the differences between men and women what are your odds that you will be able to hack a solution to get getting all the brilliant women in our country who care about stem into the work workforce this is what we need to do there's no shortage of brilliant women you know i call with them i know they're there we need to
you're out as a society do we need to pay women more so that we can get them out of working in the home and taking older the young children during their prime years we need to be very creative about the actual differences between men and women we have a rule not equal pay for equal work but equal pay for unequal salary negotiation if don't sell twenty please please elaborate on that because that is an issue with why women sometimes make less than men is that they do they have the same sort of aggressive salary negotiating tendance is that a lot of men do aggressive testosterone driven sort of i mean there's all sorts of things that you know i again i don't want a man splaine any cut that is not a big issue too i mean but look at check all right short story called the new income poop in which its the an employer and the domestic worker in his home
and he talks to her about all of her wages and then he starts taking away little bit by little bit for you know you broke a cup and you were a little bit late and he whittles her compensation down to nothing and she accepts it and then he says the employer says you you stupid cool i've just cheated you out of your entire wages i'm going to them to you but understand that this is how an employer cheats an employee and you just like whoa right so this is an old russian speaking a truth which is don't allow yourself to get taken advantage of now you could say that's really horrible because it's called the nincompoop right or you could say actually that was an attempt to talk about problem about needing to be more aggressive and more assertive so you know getting back to the to the to the da more issue
do more needed to set this thing up a google differently so i took my son to the local pinball arcade and just think of it as a bunch of workstations where nobody's getting paid instead you're paying for the privilege of staring at this thing for hours with the bells and lights doing something with ball mechanical systems there no they're not a lot of women trying to integrate the pinball arcade because it's a loser activity right that's how this is for losers i play pinball i'm a loser i know this and owns a pinball arcade yeah it's pinball in hurt me no the point is this is something which is low prestige it's anti compensated yeah and it's complicated we're pointing right it's just like you just plug in into the machines so my point is is that
what do said was it's not cognitive ability you idiots it's interesting temperament which is hugely liberated right if it's not basically cognitive ability if men smart as women but men can do something for hours and hours often uncompensated in a kind of robotic mono maniacal tunnel focus kind of away is that necessarily a great thing what happens to be compensated now it's only thing if that's what you choose to go into for a career i don't i program and i hate it not all programming what do you want to do that nghi indian violent thank because all spend hours doing something like that right but the point is is that coding turns me into like this autistic spectrum guy i get speech app again i don't want to say anything against
do you is so like as you the more you get into coding you only to sort of adopt a code mines and started talking to me while i'm coding all right he said hey you wanna go for beer i'll start say maybe later really yeah like if i'm doing some being annoying and i'm distracting you from your exactly right i see you is annoying yes i'm try follow me as annoying to have that helps if you're doing brazilian jiu jitsu when i come in and say hey joe we might go out for a beer like i got my hands full choke bro yeah so the issue is that of us you know who have mail hardware mail software recognize that we get obsessive compulsive not always thinking about reward right
it's not necessarily the most attractive set of characteristics when i do math i'm definitely wildly on the spectrum and i'm proud by the way i'm proud of it it's not like right in now it's not drug tori term and you're actually talking about yourself when i'm socializing yes i'd like to think that i'm fairly normal fairly normal fairly normal when i'm doing math yeah i don't want to be right i want to kill that problem i want to think through the think i want to have that theorem on that way i'm not on the spectrum in any way but i'm that way with writing for sure if i'm right someone came over to talk to me like yeah i can talk you know i mean i mean that my own my wife will come over and she'll say wow you really sharp with me like what i barely even what that you work process needy now well the thing is is that we've collaborated on you know she brought geometry from
quantum field theory into economics and so at the level of you know she's really she occupies brain space with me but she will kick out of that space kids need something whereas i'll just say i'm sure the kids will be fine it's just you know years old eric yeah they're not going be able to take care of themselves right you know and and so she'll have a much more she as has her compassion running whereas i can turn it off turn it on for periods of time when i'm focused there are these differences and you know i think we need we need to impart to teach women how to under deliver delivery yes how so well if you can't risk under delivering then you can't shoot for the you know you can't swing for the fences often you want to make sure that you're going to be able to not disappoint so very often like hey i thought i could do it didn't quite workout it's going to take another couple of weeks that's uh
good way of putting it though 'cause that's a results oriented way of putting it instead of an ambition oriented with trying to say like if the real secret of life is over promise over deliver i don't think it is though so it is assumed that you lose out when in a bid if somebody else is going to promise more than you and then if you can't over deliver given that you've already over promised then you can't actually delight people so that they're going to want to do multiple go rounds but that's like the economy of bullshit though like do we really not even promote that like why not just be why why not just be honest about what you can do because you don't know what you can do you know this is the thing that i opened honest about what you think you can do no no ok let's use it in a practical sense okay like layers lots and lots of bring you a car and i say hey man i think the transmissions gone this fucking thing do you know how to fix one of those things you like definitely i know how to do it
i can do it but meanwhile you don't write want to go to you ma'am well i went to the guy down the street number you've given in there for twenty five years used instantly given in the car i've asked you now okay now lied to me now i go home the card message i don't know what i'm doing i'm trying to open this thing i don't know right i better learn transmissions fast right so now i the crazy mode because now i'm terrified this call crossing the adaptive valley would if it's something you can't learn fast like brazilian jiu jitsu quote if i come to you and i say hey are you due to expert eric yes i am i okay cool will you meet me in two weeks and we're going to jujitsu and you have two weeks to go fucking crazy and learn all you know about you just say so what we're talking about now is this is not a trivial skill transmissions is not slow down okay you have to be able to have a feel for what adaptive valleys you can cross
okay i see we sank right so so if your other arm if you say like hey i could run this country country and i run businesses brazil so yeah yeah yeah then you're going to have a problem because you we have to learn washington in order to run right if you have no plan do that then you're just bullshitting your way through everything like hypothetically like this ipad this situation hypothetically ok now but my point is that there are lots of things that don't have those characteristics where something is really hard but you may have to invent something in order to get out of it so there's no dumb enough to get in smart enough to get out is kind of the magic formula bite off more than you can chew but if you actually you know feel called
you can summon the will you can summon the intellect you can summon your friends your resources to somehow get across the adaptive value and the problem that leaves open the possibility won't be able to get across that valley whereas put someone who is an expert in the field he's worked very hard to apprenticeship through schooling whatever it is to get to become an x people can tell you definitively yes eric i can fix your computer i fix heaters for a living i know exactly how to attach a motherboard board let's at least agree that you're making the point that you know over promise don't under deliver yes but we all know that we all know that we all know that that's the general good advice so bye advising women to do something that they should but here's the problem the more women that over promise and
your delivered the more where people are going to you know it's not want a fuckin' sure these chicks they don't deliver i don't think that's right i don't think i think that what's happening is that there are certain characteristics that are very valuable in low variance processes there are certain things that you want every time to workout ok right well childers child rearing your particular kinds of surgery yes right it's simple appendectomy i don't want to get fancy just do the appendectomy and don't screw it up right ok ok so those are low variance processes now you've got some crazy conjoined twins that nobody's ever seen before right and the question is what are we going to do right well do you think that that is potentially within your ability even though nobody's ever successfully pulled it off before you have to over promise to some extent
like there's a guy is going to try to do a head transplant you know we we had head transplant with monkeys in the early 70s robert white or something yeah so just came out of jim watson said this thing which i think is just brilliant which is if you're going to do something amazing you are by definition i'm qualified to do it that's what's in real quick and wants and that's right now the point was that those guys did not know enough bio chemistry to do the double helix but why do you think that's good advice to give to women over promise over promises understand it if you cannot over promise you may not be able to win a bidding war for the right to do a project if you're playing it very very safe and other people are saying i can get that done faster and cheaper
see the cynic in me says you're telling people to bullshit i'll be up til gates i like to know whether or not someone connected to deliver on what we're talking with bill gates talked to ibm he didn't have an operating system he said that he did that created a panic situation how often do you have a product and you announce the date the product before the engineering is done but are you talking about outliers liars you talking about people pulled things off that you know the average person probably doesn't mean how many people talk all right wayside how many people do over promise and this is what i'm trying to get it which is if you value regularity then under promise over deliver right if you value shackleton like outliers you may have to over promise and over deliver so that way okay and you may have to risk over prom sing under delivery
i think women absolutely so women are people absolute they are much like am i hiring chicks i'm going byron checks for the reason you're telling them to not be the way they are but we're failing to communicate you know another now i'm just i'm just playing devil's advocate in picking you apart a little bit that's ok but i think other is when you start hearing people say why aren't there more female founders of billion dollar plus tech companies my feeling is that a lot of those people who do found such companies are this kind of fast and loose outlier idiom and very often females specifically because the crazy demands of child rearing which is like something you cannot screw you have to be on all the time you have to be incredibly regular have
very strong ethic of not screwing up branches positive i don't want to say that it's negative but i'm not saying that it's made what i am saying is that if you are not happy because you were not represented in the outlier category understand that screwing up is not a behavior pattern that leads two outlier level results i see what you're saying you were saying so they almost have to go away from their natural instincts and adopt a different pattern of behavior to achieve extraordinary success yeah i mean i would like to tell a lot more men hey you can't keep promising and failing to come through yeah so you know it would be better if we had higher regularity from some men who chronically over promise the chronically under deliver and we had more women who were trying to swing for the fences if the feeling is why are we not represented at the highest level of certain kinds of activities so alright
so what i'm trying to get at is that we are not currently feeling safe enough to have these style of converse where we're saying look to what extent are we holding ourselves back are we holding you back what is that we need to be doing or what we talking about the glass floor as well as the glass ceiling so the bricklayer unions the a famous example where if you look for pictures of bricklayers you'll generally see a bunch of guys very few women and there's no complaint these have not been integrated so there are ways in which you don't find the pinball arcades you don't find them in bricklayers unions and you find fewer of them founding you know multi billion dollar tech companies so how do feel about that i don't know i mean the key question is if
want to see change you have to be risking having a real conversation about these things that would do more tried to do was to decouple intelligence from this problem and say it's much more temperament an interest in the person who made that point on dave rubin show a month before the google memo leaked was my wife and she didn't get attacked this she said look you know i was in an incredibly you know basically an all male environment i wasn't happy because of the temperament and interest when it got highly competitive i didn't want to spend my energy and my time fighting she has she has like a nobel quality result in economics and her feeling was it's just
worth it to get into some multi decade pissing match with incredibly powerful people now my feeling about this is those guys are going down we're gonna fight them you know i'd mike a book came out called the physics of wall street that i encourage women to read the chapter called a new manhattan project and the epilogue discusses her contribution and you know in fact we sort of walked away from it in part because she didn't want to go to war and there's nothing wrong with not wanting to go to war but that is a very big temperamental difference that is not a cognitive difference and that's what i think the more was saying now i think you and i would both agree that we would never want anyone to discriminate against women for a job that they're qualified for and they're looking to get into if they're good at we would like to see people who would
like to see a equality of opportunity right more than that more than that yeah i mean you think about how many women are offline and you think of it as like just stop thinking about in terms of like so she good and think yeah like an oil field that hasn't been tapped they're neural allowing us to resend children i'm far as numbers henschel right you you're just talking to jews in physics so one one percent of the world's population of one hundred and twenty five percent of the nobel prize in physics or thereabout right very few asian females have nobel prizes if if i were trying to figure out with oil fields i wouldn't go to texas to try to find more oil because i figured it would be pretty well picked over i try to find some other place it's like i'm going to find great waves not in hawaii but go to the arctic right so let's say asian females heavy which percentage of the world's neurons basically untapped if you want
like tons of money if you want to cure cancer if you want to do all these things figure out how to bring those neurons fully online so it's not just a question of nobody wants to keep them out there's a huge prize to be one for figuring out the puzzle right but it hasn't not been proved that gender and sex have a role in what people are attracted to or interested in so why should we assume that just because we have these systems like whether economic systems whether it's you know starting a business or whether it's working in tech why should we assume that women would want to do that why should we courage them to do that if they're not interested in it and why do we put so much value in it just because it generates incredible amount of money do you do you think that maybe we what we're looking at is natural patterns natural patterns where i mean this is the more argued that men gravitate towards certain things more often than women and that was one of the
that was so disturbing to me that was overlooked about his memo he had a full page and a half dedicated to trying to encourage and did various ways to try to encourage women to get an attack right nobody talked about that the other thing that they didn't two is no one men would no one but many of the people that published his work and took sniper of it they didn't publish the citations right for the bill we are yeah which is like reno it's it's funny now yeah it's immoral but it's what it is is back to your cult analogy these people are in a call and this was a challenge to to the ideology of the cult so but but let's look at it from the felt experience in the felt experience if you if you've already struggled as a woman against incredible odds to be in tech to begin with you know that there's somebody whispering and she's not very good they only hired
because she was female and you're sick of this shit right so you have to appreciate that the lived experience of the whim inside of google is that they know that some percentage of those guys were saying hey i just want to talk about studies are actually pissed off right so their bullshit detectors are set very very high they think they're hearing dog whistles everywhere and so i don't think we should be blaming women who been subjected to this as if this is not a real thing there really are dog whistles there really are people who don't want women in tech and we want to go back to an all boys club blah blah for sure but that's not really what we're saying are we know we aren't i don't think right now but the issue is what if i need to do some amount some simply minimal amount of kind of intellectual terraforming to
all of these female neurons to work on all of these amazing problems so what if what if the people who have the answer for well take cancer or ag who knows happened to be female what if i needed do some things in order to make the environment more attractive like for example probe being in teams has to some extent per replaced cowboy programming worse just some guy with his code and you know right a set of headphones in the he he goes to it okay so that's what he was talking about like what are the to what extent can you actually change the nature of work to bring these
extra neurons online now that's the right reason to do this i don't think we should value like what is coding it's some sort of highly logical very technical persnickety activity if it's highly compensated everybody wants in if it's poorly compensated only people who are sort of addicted to it one right and it happens to be sort of high status at the moment and so there's this feeling of a king okay this must be an all boys club and maybe it grew up as an all boys because maybe it has particular attributes but the thing that i'm looking at the baby different from what you're looking at is that i'm thinking about particular high ability females who have left the game or who have sort of going into a lower intensity mode because there's just so being in an all male environment so if i can interject you're trying to discourage attrition i'm trying to
courage attrition of the amazing people who have something deep and powerful and important to say so the environment of these places is contrary to them establishing whatever strength of the house so let me give it i would love rather not talk about women and i'd rather talk about something i know very very well which is myself ok so four years ago i gave some talks on physics which terrifying to me because i wasn't trained as a physicist and they got a lot of attention and publicity at oxford i don't like the unpleasantness of intellectual one upsmanship and negging if you will that takes place in particle theory it's a turn off to me and so i've sort of stayed away for four one slash two year because i didn't like how unpleasant and hyper like exaggeratedly masculine it was why do you think that exists well because it's a huge
why is raining mean if you're trying to get gain einstein's mantle it's still a i'm winning because you know einstein was times man of the century so it's uh as of this huge prize there's also a lot of critical thinking a lot of criticizing yeah but there's a lot of just wasted yeah there's like a dick measuring contest that does nothing for me okay right and so so my point is is that is a guy who's been in mathematics physics economics finance and tech that's five hyper there are some of them that i just can't stand because they're too exaggeratedly mail and you you feel like criticism is exaggeratedly mails that just criticism it's just like snarky stupid mean spirited construct div teachout mean girl show female show maybe housewives of beverly hills that's pretty pretty takedown yeah that's a different version
so this is you avoid these particular person makes lots of us men and you think women there would you be more so likely to avoid and you would lose the contract just trying to say a lot of these brilliant minds that part of the problem is is that every time you have an extremely kind of overly like an exaggeratedly toxic culture get attrition from people who are really good at it or just don't like to go into work makes sense and putting that on women is not fair right i don't do labor economics at harvard for the same reason it right it's a really unpleasant i understand that once they've actually gotten to the game yeah right but is that what
this them from pursuing the game or is it natural inclinations towards other pursuits and then it's a mixture it's a mixture right so most things right well this is really what damore was saying is you saying there's a five thousand and fifty default baseline that you've adopted i don't think i james damore don't think that we should accept five thousand and fifty we should figure out what percentage of this has to do with uh interest in inclination an should be an adjustment that with prejudice and right so break it into two components were off of fifty plus b where a is the natural amount that it should favor one gender or sex over the other and then b is the extent of systematic yes that's a very analytical i think a very good chance that it will do the same thing it is exactly right you're one of the very few people that it's broken down like that if you can
in this weird ideological struggling i got into tremendous trouble because i let off a tweet that was about biologist yeah great because richer dawkins had just been d platform at berkeley where he was going to speak as a biologist my brother thought about why of the platform platform food because you know he said something uncharitable about islam which we have to get back to you right but the key point was is that i had three biologists damore dawkins and weinstein who had all been d platform so i let off a tweet about you know for god sake stop teaching people that they should run to hr rather than code which had nothing to do with harassment at all it was really just about seeing a woman who deleted her tweet and i haven't talked about this i'd tell now because i felt that i reacted to her deleted tweet and then i still i still have it on my
shooter but i didn't want to bring it up and then i i was left sort of holding the bag right what was the to eat it was a dear google uhm the don't teach my daughter to run to hr for financial freedom rather than code thanks a dad and that was in it is like suck it up if you're being harassed in the workplace you know do not suck it up if you were being harassed in the workplace i don't know how to make that clear but it's about if somebody's talking like a biologist and they're saying oh well there's prenatal doster own and you know there are these psycho metrics and these are the conserved differences across cultures that's not a reason to go to hr that's a reason to figure out the person is making sense not making sense to take them on the arguments that's i feel very passionately as well think discourse it's free speech is incredibly important when you distort
what that guy was saying and you turn into his hateful attack on women you've shut down discourse and you've discourage anybody else that has any sort of unusual opinion or unusual observation from coming forth because you're essentially you're limiting free speech to free speech that you agree with and this is what happened while i agree with this but think about how difficult it has been as soon as i say learn how to over promise and over deliver when under delivering that that that can take up ten minutes like are you telling me to bullshitin not come through no i'm not saying that i know what i'm saying but all of these higher level points all have level misinterpretations right and so you know circumstance it's also important to realize that after so many years of putting up with sort of whisper campaigns it is standable that women are sick of the right so that's true to that
right yeah so the key question is are we going to just deep platform all the biologists are we going to pretend that there are no differences are we going to pretend the gender and sex have absolutely nothing to do with each other like this sort of fantasy life that you can try to lead in press of context is going to destroy the underpinnings of in civilization and i have nothing against eastern civilization but i'm an exponent of western civilization and you know this gets back to the issue of will we be able to talk anywhere in a safe enough fashion that we can have really meaningful conversations so that we can actually fix these fucking problems right and the only way you're going to fix these problems is if you cut out all this the the ideological bias on the right and the left the male and the female and just look at the problem for what it really is well in it's tough
or challenge because we also don't see ourselves but just hiring that guy for that memo and then here's the my favorite part my all time favorite part they we invited women to take time off 'cause it was so stressful i mean you are you are reinforcing the worst stereotypes that someone couldn't i actually read the memo yeah and it was so disturbing to you that you had to take time off you are insanely fragile or you're looking for time off you looking to take time off either one of those things reinforces the worst stereotypes that people have against women yeah but what if the idea is different what if the idea is that dave we've been experiencing trauma at somebody else's hands that wasn't james damore ok but that's not about the james damore memo and then just i have it done right why have it
because that's not thermal lots but you're having it directly in response to that guys a memo which was it in any way directed this conversation i go to india and i see a bunch of backwards swastikas with dots in them that have nothing to do with nazis right can trigger door going far though we're pretty far away from that let's just talk about the internal memo that little sense like why why give women off if you want it first of all don't fire that fucking guy have a convo nation with them and have open discourse the biggest problem was firing him because establishes a precedent that truck look i called him up specifically to ask what the hell happened right and you know you've talked to him yes he's soft spoken very kind very nice guy james is pretty open so i'm gonna say he's while the introverted almost certainly on the spectrum for short and his reaction was that i to a meeting where they try to teach diversity the biology that's wrong they asked if i had any feedback i told them he wrote at
will this is right this is like this is how its brain thinks exactly which is why is a coder which is why he was a biologist which is why he's at champion right exactly this is how it's very important that these people not be unwelcome because fundamentally we're going to this country i'd social justice stuff in absolutely everything all knowing that he was labeled as a misogynist over and over and over again and you don't even given the guy a chance to have a communicate have open communication like if you sit down with sort of the big problem is that if you say come to the seminar we're going to teach you things the things are wrong and now we want your feedback right just setting certain minds up friends thing for sure yeah that said and and this is something i i i i this is like much harder to bring to this room this firm yes this room was wrong note because i'm i'm part of this constellation of people but we keep doing this we keep making a mistake
my opinion which is we keep seeing these wrong things that happen in the space and we lose the empathy in some sense because people are not representing themselves well so i believe having watch my wife in economics that it is really corrosive to go in every to work in an environment which does not feel welcoming for sure very toxic very bad so now the idea is that something breaks the camels back and it's a proximate cause it's not the actual problem right blairstown how they framed it they're saying they're giving people time off because this diversity members that he put in his brain targets versus hard targets right so the idea it is is that he was a soft target but they may have had you know many of these women may have had a manager who passed them over for you know promote
since three times when they'd been the major contributors but it sort of reinforces a rational ideas about his memo without actually reading the core components of an look charted objects why i that's why i was outspoken on i know i know you were right i know you were the point is even while i am out spoken on to more species have think there's issues i believe there are fundamentally we are in danger of breaking empathy with people who do not express themselves in our area and i don't like the fragility i don't like the you know the there is this confusion between strong people versus very aggressive people and in general stronger people are much less aggressive right is not that's like loud yelling i think that they're winning an argument because they're loud yelling well if you watch like the jungle book shere khan the tiger is portrayed as unfailingly polite right right because he's just he doesn't need to prove himself right
so part of the problem is is that we are waiting for the strongest voices to rise above the din and say look we can't be this aggressive about everything all the time right we have to actually think what's misdemeanor what's a felony what's a foot fault you know so just a boy little down you don't think there's any issue with inviting women to take time off from a memo that you didn't even disagree with i'm i absolutely think that there's a problem there but i don't think that that's the right place google sitting on a pile of cash it doesn't need all these people to show up they botched thing as far as i can tell you but why why tell women take some time off you just got assaulted you were just attacked by some horrible thing that doesn't discourage or that discourage
diversity the discouraging right thing to do would be retained to retain more right yes and to say look we need to be able to talk about this right without silence each other with terrifying each other without so thing that we've heard the others arguments have some public speeches where you have people poses ideas and have him discuss right and make it public so that maybe people can learn from it instead of making it this gigantic campaign against one guy's idea and just destroying his credibility in a very sort of perverse way how about just google has youtube they have all the resources in the world i just in to turn this into an educational experience exactly yeah but the big problem firing damore yes because what that did was it puts out a press it said here's how game should go when you hear somebody say genotype versus phenotype complain yes when you when something makes you want
scrabble about psychometrics complain if somebody starts to disagree with implicit association tests and don't own their own bigotry and bias complain right well that's terrifying well it's sort of the same type of thinking that got your bra weather in hot water in evergreen what i'm trying to get at is that we are we who understand this problem i think better than others and are willing to talk about it in public are losing empathy we're so sick of being worn down by these terrible arguments right and so you know can we we pop all the way back up to your original point about this law sure okay you asked the question why is the left seemingly weirdly supportive of practices
include female genital mutilation honor killing terror etc etc etc and i think it has to do with the fact that there is a fundamental inability to discuss these issues because nobody is given us the right tools and language so the issue of little judaism political christianity and political islam is one cat and then there's just sort of cultural judaism cultural long cultural christianity now quite honestly you can easily be embedded in a muslim community that is not devoted to political islam and feel that you are very much in another a brahmic faith similar to christianity and judaism on the other hand there is a much bigger issue which is that islam has a
totality to it the judaism no longer has and the christianity never had as sam harris points the out the line render unto caesar what is caesar's cleaves off the potential for political christianity at the same level as political as long as you're you're dealing with this different object that doesn't quite seem to have the same character sticks as the others and you haven't been given any tools to sort of pull it apart you've also been taught that if you are proud of european civilization that you are like pro white white is irrelevant to me i care european civilization just as i care about european barbarity having sat through european barbarity i'm not going to give up her being civilization you know so in in part what you have is you have people who are making the vanilla confusion where they they imagine that
vanilla you know we use it to me in the absence of anything interesting but in fact it's like the most interesting spice in this particular orchid that's incredibly flavorful so we it's like a linguistic mistake well white is that to european civilization i have no attachment to my yes they could care less couldn't care less on the other hand i have a huge attachment to newton to mozart to the terrible things that happened you know in the in the killing lands in the mid 20th century so the evil the good the imperialism the guilt like that tradition i'm very resonant with the good the bad and the ugly and it is my tradition so when i you know meet somebody coming from china i expect them to be an exponent of chinese culture well i don't
to say well i don't have the right to have my own culture because i have to erase myself based on this confusion between get this that is incredibly value and the skin color that is completely irrelevant to me i don't i would much rather have western civilization running between the ears of people who don't look anything like me uh and you know be proud of what the software has produced then have a bunch of people who look like me who don't think in any way that i recognize wherever the original point was why does the left wide progress failed to criticize the homophobia the sexism the the killings with all the the horrific acts so let's talk about let's talk about particular example okay rabaul your her them yes revolution
afghan women's association these are the most badass chicks on the planet they're the ones who taught little girls under the taliban they are muslim they're proud afghan women they have afghan men who risk their lives these are people who take their lives in their own hands to educate women in one of the most repressive places on earth that is islam those are muslims right right now my point is i try to get people interested in won't you take the side of the muslims who hold your values right or the values closest to yours and this is where we get into real trouble because for some reason we don't perceive that there is almost an intellectual civil war within islam with forces from maderna t and forces that are trying to reboot you know from the original texts right
so do you think that we associate islam with may even a smaller fraction of it then we really understand like the isis action the the the taliban like things that were terrified of what people that are throwing gay folks off buildings we somehow weirdly view them as more authentic some sense and so you don't wanna go against the authentic universe for example the hobbyist sort of saudi arabian very i never thought was going to be influential over pakistan because south asians tended to look down but with all of this money that's been spent exporting the sort of ticular text oriented very literal interpretations i think we've we've gone down a terrible path where we've sort of weirdly
not understood that there is a conflict in that we actually have a dog in this fight in the dog in this fight is those were trying to create cultural islam and cleaving off political islam i don't want live under sharia law and i don't want to feel bad about this live under anybody's religious law i don't want anyone to live under whole jewish law and this is a mainstay of in civilization and when we can't feel comfortable about that which is like who who are you to say whether we should live in under sharia law answer is i come from a culture myself it's not like i have no this is my culture we do not live under religious law period the end it's fast turning to me how very how many different idea loud ideologies exist and how much they vary in how people can just slot right into those and accept them as the end all be all period and it's to me just from uh
evolutionary psychology standpoint just looking at the the broad spectrum of different ideology the people slide into it so fast i it so fasting how many different sets that people adhere to that are unwavering and rigid and how common it is it so uncommon to not have an ideology it seems like this idea of what will the numbers that we have of atheists and agnostics in america today i mean is this unprecedented is this the most the largest of human beings ever that are looking at things in going maybe nobody has an answer maybe this isn't the right way yeah well i i act but i so think that a lot of those agnostics and atheists have more religious leanings the nail open up two and a lot more of the religious folks are able to run the atheist agnostic program almost perfectly between their ears as well i don't think it's as clean as let's say you know sam might same here
this might make it that's what i was going to get to next whi is it that so many people who are atheists and agnostics adopt religious tendencies in terms cultural behavior and what their to not willing to serve except a lot stuff that you see that you're calling earlier when you were saying people to describe racism and you you do describe it as power and influence these cult number ideas did a lot of times getting these cult member ideas from people that will tell you that they're not a part of an ideology they're not religious but they are exhibiting dogmatic images ideology so but that was my question is is it just a thing that we are inherent program to slide into yeah yeah yeah this is this is the big point where when jordan
sent in sam harris got into it the first time on sam show that was so confusing was well was confusing and sam would have would have appeared to have won that one pretty decisively because jordan tried to fold in fitness to the definition of truth yeah does not work right your kings point however was really deep and i don't think he did it uh the service it needed to be to have done i think they would i'm better off in person i don't like conversation where people are as wide on skype and i've i've refused so far to do any podcast were not looking at the person because i believe me i contact to warm yeah it's huge i've done one and so far that was with john anthony west the brilliant egyptologist it's just 'cause he's a ill and he lives in new york and it's just hard to get it was awkward if i had to but in general it's like how many fights have happened over unicode and ask yeah actors as bad
number would even take place i you're looking at each other talking to each other i told yeah tone tone cues is it's completely you know that's like with conferencing is that you find it you're staring right above the person is usually you trust yes so it's weird this going to say is that jordan peterson's really deep point if i understand it so jordan if you're out there please correct me is only archetype of the kind found in religion is sufficiently rich and deep too explain why humans behave the way they do there is no scientific that's good enough there's no purely logical there's no fear philosophical tradition so as of the moment we're stuck with deep cultural archetype baby shakespeare would be the only thing comparable to the religious cannons and the claim that you're making licitly in the jordans making perhaps more explicitly is that there's something
what our brains maybe that we were parented and so we need to give the parenting effort over to something else i don't know that fundamentally finds its way to religion even the computer that is our brain knows that it's making leaps that don't make sense how old are your kids minor twelve and fifth do you when you see them do you see things that are you and your wife within in wonder like is this how much so this is genetics how much of this is the mimicking their environment how much of it is both the there's the sewage generous stuff that comes from god knows where that i have no idea cut into their head at all yeah well culture this is the books invent i mean don't don't discount individual invention sure you know for sure that too so i believe
eve that my son who twelve has gravitated very strongly towards judaism so we go to services i don't think he believes in a technical sense but he enjoys the service yeah but you know again so many of us just don't know the music is beautiful sentiments the richness and coming back to jordans point except she's not part of it it's like hearing to doing a horrible right you're in like star wars drama warrior in kung fu panda and she left don't let anything go to some you know you're going to a place whether it's a temple or a chapel or you know you're going to this place is uniquely ornate environment you know we have particular words for example the rabbis tell us you know we usually don't say this because this is what we have stolen from the angels but this was the one time in the year when we can actually shouted and it's
sass potent end you know you're going to to your original point so you have some weird tradition that makes no sense that produces it ridiculously disproportionate number of the nobel prizes let's say in science it would it be scientific to throw that away i don't think so no right so if you were scientist scientists i don't know what's going on with these weird rituals it's like you know it could be the funky chicken or the hokey pokey something is mean if if most of the people who nobel prizes we were found to do the hokey pokey i'd probably put more effort into may it's not maybe that's it's not a to the ideas that spot and from these religions at all maybe it's that people have the freedom to think about these other things they have intense confidence in the future destiny in their god and their traditions their ethics and they're also carved out that this i
thought of religion in some ways is almost being like a moral scaffolding like you ok well you got like a real clear structure so operate under and that gives you resources it gives you freeze up resources to do other things i i mean the problem is is that the atheist critique which is like there is no beer to do in a cloud granting your wishes or listening to what you know bich that's my answer how do you know everybody who says there's no god and nothing happens when you die like you don't know that to say that is no different than someone saying they know for sure there's a god in the cloud with rpn st peter noted gold but look at a list of if we conjure are if we conjure sam and we try to steal man's and right with the okay okay but they're all these explicit ways that you're supposed to worship god right they can't all be right because their mutual in compatibilities and so how do you choose one among many in it and this led right okay level none of this is the point the point is deep archetype is it's
own thing in the morning to six d archetype it's white cares about the godfather pictures differently than home alone home alone is not deep architect godfather pictures d parked it right okay this is why i i on one khan fit comfort panda like white on rice that is deep architect those are actually pretty god damn good movies not just the first one the second was not bad my kids like that the younger than yours i don't hide behind my kids just i liked it i enjoyed it i enjoyed him look i enjoy the lego movies man i say i've never seen a not bad this last ninjago wants not bad i enjoy it so i think that just messing with now i like those that really do enjoy it a little bit because a lot of dumb that i like though that sad really yeah i like a lot of dumb sheep quickly with some ship kiss that is dumb
every now and then man i'm on my way to the comedy store i'll throw on i was made for loving you baby yeah that's not so bad i prefer angus young in the school board hey i don't mind it either like him as well yeah look i'm i like all kinds of music but i'm out i wondered when it comes to archetypes whether or not when i was getting too when i was talking about your sons and your children whether or not they're behavior is genetic whether or not it's experience whether it's a combination of all things how much what we have is just in these this sort of inclination towards ideologies is because pretty much everybody had them thousands and thousands and thousands of years that we had civilization and we are in some way shape or form the product all that stuff even genetically never memories i don't totally understand genetics but what i
you understand is that there's a lot that we don't know about why ideas get transferred from father to son from children from parents to children and things to get transferred even two adopted kids right they come directly from their parents right in in a very eerie way where you go is there some like what our instincts wire children afraid of spiders and monsters like what is that is it because at one point i'm someone near them was killed by a big cat you know dozens of years ago you know back when you know we were living in these environments where we were preyed upon by predators what it mean the reasons why and rupert sheldrake had a great point about that if you two children in new york city they're not afraid of child molesters or murderers or things that they might encounter car accidents they're afraid of monsters like why what is a monster
and that a monster may very well be the memory or the ancient genetic memory of christmas i mean i think if you look at for example the evil stepmother oh well that's real too okay yeah but what was that about probably it had to do with the fact that the first thing that you want to teach your children is hey if i'm not around and daddy remarries somebody who has no interest in you genetically right here's the emergency glass in case of emergency plan right all of that but it's also how many times does that play out or someone has to tell that story yeah because it's so calm we all know it we all know the story i have a good friend of mine who is essentially tortured by stepfather or throughout growing up i mean it has a horrific life story and one of a million one of millions right but sometimes we do is we we sort of go obliquely at these things so for
sample in little red riding hood you know is the fox fox sorry is a wolf a wall for actually stand in well i think it's a wolf because throughout europe through thick and thin thousands of years wolves sprayed yeah but the wolf is pretty creepy in this kind of because wolves are clever you know do you know weather in paris in i think the early 1400s wolves killed something like the number some insane number of people in paris like fourteen people were killed by what snyder in paris they are starting to show up in paris again wolves survive looking dangerous wolves will look so everybody that everybody respects the wolf but yeah but they're clever yesterday about wolves is they they have some sort of a health ever said the better to see here right because he was being clever mean okay but you asked the question about predators also made the
big bad wolf to three pigs it's all wolves there's a lot of wolves in ancient folklore and stay the out of the woods woods always stay out of the woods wolves in the woods right so what's the woods is in central park know it's real woods people live near the fucking 'cause they weren't there wasn't those kind of city yes when they wrote the stories when the grimm brothers were around there was no central park right now all i'm suggesting is is that a lot of information comes coded so that it doesn't point to directly maybe maybe stepmother counts and wolves are dangerous step mom i take no responsibility for this man there's a lot of amazing step mothers now let's say thirty seconds worth of things that wonderful step buttons there's amazing step mothers it is obviously some monsters there's obviously some monsters but just yeah we step mother step stepfather the question is what happens when
mommy or daddy re marys yeah sometimes it's awesome right off and it's not right and why because of this issue about genetic relatedness so you know shore yeah to your earlier question i was stunned i didn't think about twenty three in me as a religious test but when i sent my saliva off to be analyzed it came back you're a jew like ninety eight point six percent coming well i didn't i didn't know my religion was in my saliva it didn't even occur to me yeah but it's a but that's the weird thing about jews is that it's a religion but it was also an ethnicity right right right the idea is that all of these rules dietary restrictions rule for who gets to marry it at what level in the culture where do you your resources are you proselytizing or do you try to live at steady state do you discourage people converting in
all of these things are some sort of tool kit for living and it has produced more physicists then you know outfielders right so it's not good at everything create some things at the exclusion of others and so the question about how does the stuff co travel um travels in some ways it's very mysterious yeah you know we pass on trauma say in my family for sure that my family stop being religious when my great uncle sasha was killed right at the end of world war two and my great grandmother said no no compassionate god would kill somebody so stupidly who had so much give to their family and change the family from some kind of orthodoxy to orthodox atheism when then you know for three reasons you have jews marrying jews with nobody believing in anything
i think continuing to marry jews why are they celebrating these holidays well it's because fundamentally a switch got flipped but my guess is that the orthodox were always questioning whether there was a god the atheists are always questioning whether there's a god at some level as our brains are not just simple computers to be a room you know rid of bias they have particular needs so my four things that i care about our truth fitness meaning and grace all of those right off amongst each other i said there's something like this on sam's sam harris's program a lot of people who wrote in so you know shows that he doesn't care about truth and you know i felt like now it shows that you guys don't understand how important so the argument understand the argument sam would like to make an argument that the better and more rational are thinking is the more it can do everything that religion once did so if you
dmt or an lsd experience that can give you meaning and transcendence you know if you can think your way more accurately through a problem that should increase your fitness know maybe grace is something that's independent and you have to figure out whether that's important to you but the a choice in you know an elected objective and my belief is that a lot of these things are actually preset and that there's more antagonism between them so i think of myself as an atheist but it's uh because there's a room in my mind that i try to keep very very clean analytical that i i sort of make the first among equals but i have needs for these other things and i haven't you know times when the truth doesn't give me enough meaning and i'll start storytelling okay you know what we're surrounded we've got to fight a way out you know like all that kind of narrative so joseph campbell's type stuff yeah sure
i think that the been there's lessons to be learned in those right but it's and there's meaning in all those stories and there's there's a longing that we have for a lot of those here journey type narratives but um but truth is significantly more import then just these lessons that we learned from heroes journeys like learning the lessons is important are fascinating they're interesting stories are amazing but what really going on like what biological processes are responsible for certain types of behavior you know what would really is happening to humor bodies under certain conditions what is really happening to the earth what is really happening as far as a mile my friend peter thiel critiques beyond this point just as you have for he says you eric under value and underweight the role of truth but i we're not even having a conversation if i think about my personal physics he rode iraq who's the guy who came up with the equation
electron less well known than the einstein equations but arguably even more beautiful in order to predict that he needed a positively search in the negatively charged particle and the only two known at the time where the electron and proton to make up let's say a hydrogen atom well the proton is quite a bit heavier than the electron and so he told a story that wasn't really true where the proton was the anti particle of the electric and heisenberg pointed out that couldn't be because the masses are too far off in that have to be well short time later the anti electron the positron that is was found i guess by anderson at cal tech in their 30s and then an anti proton was created sometime later so it turned out that the story had more meaning then the exact version of the story
so the story was sort of more true than the version of the story that was originally told and i could tell you a similar story with with einstein tell it with darwin who you know fully understand the implications of his theory as evidenced by his screwing up particular kind of orchid in his later work not understanding that his theory completely explained that orchid so there's also it's of ways in which we get the the truth wrong the first several times we try it but the meaning of the story that we tell somehow remains intact and i think that that's a very difficult lesson for people who just want to say look i want to you know like feynman would say look if if xp kermit disagrees with you then you're wrong and it's a very appealing story to tell the people but
also worth noting that feynman never got a physical law of nature and it may be that he was too wedded to this kind of rude judgment of the unforgiving you know you it meant you were to innovate in in brazilian jujitsu the first few times it might not actually work but if you told your office story no no this is actually genius and it's working and you're like no you just lost three consecutive bouts well that may give the ability to eventually perfect the move perfect the technique even though you were lying to yourself during the period in which it was being set it's a little bit like the difference between scaffolding and a building and too often people who are crazy about truth reject scaffolding which is an intermediate stage in getting too the final truth so well the problem with that analogy is that some techniques work but they just don't work
you and the reason why they don't work for you is you don't know them good enough yet right or not you can eat that yeah your problem now we can just wrap this up if you're that hungry well if the home stretch buddy we got seven more minutes can't take it anymore i'm sorry insulin lowered issues aggression listen we just read the sub anyway this is this it was a really fun conversation really i feel like that eating that bar he definitely has changed because in the body of christ it i know what you you were so hungry you had to eat the middle of talking i was so i could go to the bathroom yeah good thing going too well he said you could do it for like six weeks but the 92nd will go fucking crazy when they hear people chewing on the microphone is the number one thing that people complain about his podcast analogize to it no worries we've had these fight companion podcast and people are fucking potato chips and they're eating potato chips on the pocket and i just would get my twitter would be filled with people fucking furious so slow
america is hang in there too sorry you gotta you gotta be comfortable being uncomfortable like couple minutes i can do it well i was going to say is that analogy is not the best analogy because some things work they just don't work for you like one of the analogies as used in brazilian jiu jitsu is like someone will try a technique and it doesn't work for i'm like well that techniques no good i would say ok well you know that head kicks work right you seen people kicked go ahead and knock them unconscious right ok try to kick me in the head while i don't know how to kick people in the head there you go even if i show you how you're not going to be able to do it if i show you how to kick people in the head you think going to be able to take someone who actually knows how to fight and i had no they're going so they're going to see it come and you're going to be too slow you're not going have your neural pathways cars to the point where that thing just slices right in there we're not gonna how to set it up you're not going to have the confidence and the experience to execute it the difference between
that and the truth is very different because it does require some sort of physical process for you to master before you can execute it with with sufficient prowess to actually be successful well i think you know this has to do with placeholder truth you know the famous example of trichinosis and pork where if you believe that god hates those who eat the pig you think that's what that's about i think it's about tricking it most likely right or various other parasites right right so you know how long but malaria right bad air shellfish red tide right don't eat selfish right so all of these things have to do with i'm not quite sure that i can explain to you why this is a bad thing but let's have a placeholder and then we'll refine it over
nine right come to understand what it is that we're we're doing now lasts were rigid with their ideology we go buy some ancient scripture that ancient scripture says that anything with a cloven hoof that eats its own could you know like there's all weird laws like this is your what you're allowed to eat we're you're not allowed to eat except you that's very often not how things work right so my fear is that it's a little bit the emily lytell effect on religion where the atheist concept of a religious person is usually the sort of robot we look things up on the tables right and in fact what you often find is that you're rewarded for brilliance in and by not having to follow the rules nearly as closely if you become adept at argument sort of like really christian people with a cross tattooed on them that could be right and you make some art for example in islam contract marriage where you need to get married
for a few hours so that you can set your urges with your wife who then becomes not your wife a short time later your arbitrage the letter of the law against the need for some sort of human so they have contract marriages where you like would get married for a day yeah really so good move i think everybody should do that just to find out what the hell that person's really like you don't know until you actually marry him once you backed up with them and you're living for awhile and they have access to your money then you like then you get i know the really like one point six billion people are considering your words right now i do i don't know if it's a good thing or a bad thing i do thing that i don't think that many people in this podcast there ok we had a situation i think in in the can there in israel where people were using bread crumbs to fish as bait
question was well does that invalidate the entire water supply of israel during passover and so rabbis had to be convened and you know paid a sufficient amount of money level rabbis could figure out why it was okay to drink the water during passover right so the issue of getting around your own rules is a time honored religious tradition where you know any book that is not a book for living in survival and thriving is consigned to the dustbin of history and so the fact that these things have been around for so long in general means that they have their own means of evading the self extinguishing programs that would seem to doom them some of them those self extinguishing programs the way they evaded through fear right i mean isn't that
the fear of richard isil cheating on them yeah right and so the idea of you know if you attack on yom kapoor does that mean you can't fight back because you should you're supposed to be atoning for your sins now if you want to survive you're going to figure out a way to fight on yom kippur what about i guarantee you nobody you know if it were so easy to defeat people using their own religious traditions against them we you know the name of these religions and we wouldn't wouldn't know the genius of the books how many did we lose how many religions if we forgot what they were you like joe and ted's excellent religion yeah how many we just didn't make the cut you know i mean how many from the epic of gilgamesh from those days i would i would guess tons what did
all it was the heaven's gate remember though yeah they added to it the nineties that killed themselves when the the comet or the solo castrating yeah yeah the one guy let it let it was self castration issue the elevators and she cried furniture than anyone down to like one there were three shakers at some point in there was like one they were accepting note note no new recruits my favorite is the amish they of that i was i called rom scalar what is a crazy lincoln that's yeah we go nuts for like a year it was a ring from spring is that is that what one year where they just go fucking hog wild they don't have to follow the rules and then they usually feel soul austin disconnected that they i think the the majority of them returned to being amish is that right i am pretty are on their way to burning bass nothing there that kind of not so they get smaller booze in ac dc type nuts a they just a lot and get crazy and throw rocks you know to i'm as i'm gonna look for the amish camp yeah year
