Rivalrous dynamics multiplied by exponential tech self terminate. Exponential tech is inexorable. We cannot put it away. So we either figure out anti-rivalry or we go extinct – the human experiment comes to a completion.

Daniel Schmachtenberger visits the Stoa to discuss how to close the niches that incentivize sociopathy.

Daniel Schmachtenberger is best-known as a neurohacker, but some of his most interesting ideas are about civilization–how it thrives, how it fails, and how it eventually collapses. And right now, we are living through times that have many people wondering about the end of the world.

Daniel Schmachtenberger works in preventing global catastrophic risk. The conversation is deep, insightful and considered. If you’re in the right place to hear the message, this could have a profound impact on the way you see the world.

America’s cities are ablaze with rioting after the killing of George Floyd in Minneapolis. This comes in the heightened tensions of the coronavirus crisis. How can we make sense of this spiral of polarisation, and are bad actors taking advantage of the situation?

If a catastrophe is an event which causes the loss of most expected value, a eucatastrophe is an event which causes there to be much more expected value after the event than before.
Currently, there may be a few unique opportunities to steer the COVID-19 crisis away from catastrophe toward eucatastrophe.

One Earth Live was born as a collaborative charitable response to increasing global tensions over COVID-19; focusing on uplifting the world through positivity.

In this second episode of the Portal to be released during shelter-in-place restrictions during the Corona Virus Pandemic, we release an older discussion with Daniel Shmachtenberger on whether there is any plausible long term scenario for human flourishing confined to a single shared planet.

In the popular film War on Sensemaking, existential risk analyst Daniel Schmachtenberger laid out how the information ecology was fundamentally broken.

Daniel is a Co-Founder at the Neurohacker Collective and director of Research and Development, he’s currently focusing on global catastrophic risk assessment and mitigation, systemic fragility, and evolving societal architecture for Covid-19.

In this sequel Daniel Schmachtenberger talks about how information is weaponised by all sides, and how to survive in an environment where nothing can be trusted.

What can we trust? Why is the ‘information ecology’ so damaged, and what would it take to make it healthy?

Advancing the capacities for sense-making, design, and coordination needed to support the necessary nearer-term transitional and protective work, is Daniel’s mission and focus. Buckle up. This one’s a long time coming.

Daniel Schmachtenberger joins Erik on this episode. He is a civilization designer interested in social architecture.

Is anything clear in the age of disinformation?

A discussion including the evolution of tech, limits of growth, building non-terminating civilization, anti-rivalrous behavior, and more.

Discussed topics include: state of planetary phase shift, generator functions of existential risk, the definition of an adequate social architecture that avoids existential risk, how technology creates asymmetric advantage that debases the planetary life support system, the auto-poetic nature of trauma, and more.

In this podcast discussion with Charles Eisenstein, we discuss exponential tech, self-terminating social and technological processes, the future of humanity, the nature of the present crisis, and the necessity of a transition to non-rivalrous systems.

Forrest Landry join us for the first public podcast interview he has ever done. In this episode, Daniel Schmachtenberger interviews Forrest on the principles of ethics and choice.

Earth is our home, and future generations need its resources in order to survive and thrive. It’s crucial we move off of reliance on dirty energy and towards renewable energy.

This conversation with David Fuller of Rebel Wisdom looks at the growing civilisation-level crisis that we are beginning to see around us, and looks at what a genuine ‘phase shift’ for human progress might look like.

A discussion of Meta Existential Risk on the Creating a Humanist Blockchain Future podcast.

All human-induced existential risks are symptoms of two underlying generator functions: win-lose games multiplied by exponential technology.

Tristan Harris, founder of the Center for Humane Technology, has set in motion the Time Well Spent movement; a cultural awakening to the underhanded manipulation of our collective awareness through social media platforms and interactive tech.

A short introduction to the future of medicine and well-being science.

This podcast asks all guests the following 4 questions: What is your purpose in life? What do you want to see in the world by 2050? What are you doing to make that happen? How can interested people get involved? This is a good intro in 30 mins to what I care about and focus on.

Dr. Andrew Huberman, professor of neuroscience at Stanford, and Brian Mackenzie, renowned coach and innovator in health and fitness, have teamed up to stack their distinct professional insights. Find out how research with visually evoked fear in lab mice can be applied to optimize human performance and willful state change.

In this episode, I address how the current civilization model generates sub clinical mental disorders in nearly everyone who participates with it.

In this episode, Ken Wilber discusses “waking up” and “growing up,” the two major types of self-improvement practiced throughout human history.

Peering into neurophysiology, psychology, ecology, economics, and social science; this conversation takes a journey across many disciplines to paint a picture of systems, complex causality, and the impact of what we call “civilization.”

Humanity can, and must phase shift to a higher level of ordered complexity.
