We are exceedingly happy to be launching the Reality Reminded podcast today, with acclaimed Dutch documentary filmmaker Hans Busstra. Could it be that we have ‘un’minded reality and now need to ‘re’mind it? This is a show like no other, in that each episode covers a specific theme, as opposed to a specific interviewee; the listening experience has an almost visual feel to it; and the content covered is more akin to an ongoing television documentary than a podcast. And best of all, it’s all FREE.
In Reality Reminded, I share my research for a new documentary about metaphysical idealism. In this first episode, I take you back to what first fired my interest in idealism: my fascination with conscious artificial intelligence. Diving into the idea of spiritual machines, I found myself stumbling upon metaphysical and mathematical problems that point away from materialism.
Could it be that we’ve ‘un’minded reality and now need to ‘re’mind it?
This first episode features archival footage from Ray Kurzweil and Yuval Noah Harari, and exclusive interviews with Meghan O’ Ghieblyn, Jeffrey J. Kripal and Roger Penrose.
