Also, Prof.Harari mentioned that if people in US or other powerful countries are in pain, then the world is gonna feel it. While the pain of people in less developed country are less critical in terms of their impact. But in the future, most economical value will go to those big countries, it's not hard to imagine government distribute the wealth to sustain stability inside. The real problem is a global one, people in poor countries can not have a seat in the future, as Prof. Harari mentioned later. So Combining these two ideas, it doesn't sound that bad, cause the impact of the poor are not that important, theoretically speaking.

I wonder the idea of promoting meditation, getting to know yourself, can it just be another narrative like so many others, how should we know this will truly help?

Yuval Harari is historian, futurist and spiritual in the same time. It's rare that someone can connect all this dot together.

Thank you for this most illuminating TED Interview. As a gift back to you, professor Harari, I call your attention to a compelling narrative that can replace those three discredited socio-economic narratives you mentioned. With copious eloquence, Bahá’u’lláh, a prisoner and exile from 19th century Iran, painted an astonishing vision of an ever-advancing world civilization. At the core is the principle of the fundamental oneness of humankind. If you are not already familiar with it, I recommend starting with “The Prosperity of Humankind” (searchable online). This statement is a product of the transcendent and practical process that Baha’u’llah catalysed world-wide to leaven the loaf of a leaden humanity with remarkable new inspiration at institutional, community and individual levels.

Harari interview Interesting, but also perpetrating the delusion that personal data has a great value that indiviuals are entitled to. It does not. Data dependent businesses (Facebook, Google, etc) draw their wealth from their knowledge of how to use large data sets. Each person/customer data is of marginal value and almost irrelevant. It has no value unless ALL people hold their data back. Fat chance of that. In a monopsony environment the seller has almost no individual power (besides that of self delusion of his own value). Try to sell our own data? We would not know how to collect it, to whom to sell it and at what price/value, and if we accidentally found a buyer we'd be dismissed as time wasted on something the marginal value of which approaches 0. The only way to avoid monopsony is to bust the market dominator(s) and their algorithms to create competition. In any case, Harari is absolutely right, the world never had it this good. Great story.

I loved listening to this interview. So much to think about. Yuval Noah Harari is in my opinion the most thinker around. I read all his books and eagerly await a new one. Very sensitive and wise interviewer too.
