E5: This Reminds Me of Another Future - The Emergence Episode

September 2, 2018

New rule: no new ideas after two hours!

This time we talked about the idea of emergence and naturally, its counterpart, reductionism. Of course, supervenience was all thinking it’s host to this party like Rick Moranis in Ghostbusters, “Hiya doin’! Why don’t you have some of the brie. It’s at room temperature. You think it’s too warm in here for the brie?” But never mind, we soon bailed on that party.

Nearly as many names get dropped as threads in this full-on geek-out sesh on radical metaphysics.  Make no mistake, we wrestle with the big ideas-- and this tag-team don't tap-out.  Nevertheless, the ideas usually get us on points.    

Our number one fan  brought a friend. Things are really starting to get going.
