In this conversation, we discuss the nature of spirituality as a personality trait (arguably the sixth personality trait!) that cuts across cultures and religions, it's relevance for clinical practice and wellbeing and the nature of the FFM domain of openness to experience and its maladaptive expressions.

Karl Smith: inflation, the debt crisis, China and the American tripartite class system
Podcast: Razib Khan's Unsupervised Learning (LS 39 · TOP 2% what is this?) Episode: Karl Smith: inflation, the debt crisis, China and the American tripartite class system Pub date: 2021-08-06 Economics is obviously important. Recently in the US, we’ve been talking about the threat of inflation, and spending financed through debt. What does this all mean? Not only are the answers important on a macro level, but they’re also relevant to all of us. To attack these questions I decided to talk to Karl Smith, a columnist at Bloomberg. We tackle four big topics: Are we on the path toward severe inflation? (in the US) Is the US headed toward a public debt crisis in the 2020’s? What is the path forward for the US-China relationship? Finally, Karl proposes his own understanding of the new class system in the US, divided into three groups, and how we can proceed forward in a reasonably equitable manner The podcast and artwork embedded on this page are from Razib Khan, which is the property of its owner and not affiliated with or endorsed by Listen Notes, Inc.

A new alliance of democracies
Podcast: Future Tense (LS 53 · TOP 0.5% what is this?) Episode: A new alliance of democracies Pub date: 2021-08-08 President Joe Bidden wants to establish a new alliance of democracies to counter the rise of authoritarianism. He’s planning a global summit for later this year. But is such an alliance achievable in a 21st century marked by heightened geo-economic interdependency? Or is it simply a nostalgic yearning for the past? And if such an alliance could be formed, is the United States really up to the job of leading it?

Ask Me Anything #17
Podcast: Making Sense with Sam Harris (LS 84 · TOP 0.01% what is this?) Episode: Ask Me Anything #17 Pub date: 2021-08-08 In this episode of the podcast, Sam takes your questions. He begins by addressing the blowback that followed his previous podcast on “vaccine hesitancy” with Eric Topol. And then he answers the following questions: How can I inoculate my biracial children against identity politics? In what way is journalism broken, and how can we fix it? Have you read the research suggesting that the effects of microdosing psychedelics are indistinguishable from taking placebos? Can you comment on the degree to which Leftist political ideas have captured the Buddhist community? What should Democrats do to prevent a resurgence of Trumpism? What are the ingredients for a good life? Is it ever ethical for governments to lie to their citizens? If the present moment is all that matters, how can we plan for the future? Learning how to train your mind is the single greatest investment you can make in life. That’s why Sam Harris created the Waking Up app. From rational mindfulness practice to lessons on some of life’s most important topics, join Sam as he demystifies the practice of meditation and explores the theory behind it.
