We’ve hit 10K subscribers to our channel, thanks so much! As a small thank you, in this video we discuss your questions with the director of Essentia Foundation, Bernardo Kastrup. It gets pretty wild as the conversation will range from the consciousness of bacteria, to our minds being ‘time traveling machines,’ to Hans asking Bernardo if Eve performed the first quantum measurement when she ate the apple. Also: why is meditation, literally speaking, an egoistic thing to do? Did Job suffer more than Jesus? And, this one is personal for Bernardo: what is the real danger of idealism if life hits you really hard?
