Description

Greg Kieser is on the show to explore a hypothetical future where society is led by Super Aware Intelligence Machines as a framework to talk about systems thinking, supersystemic thinking, idea ecologies, the two cognitive impediments that prevent humanity from solving the largest problems it faces, and where psychedelics are sewn into the mix.
