Culture vs. Consciousness: A Core Human Tension
From Evelyn Behling on April 29th, 2020
Most creatures are adapted to their environment. Humans are, in many ways, a notable exception to this, having adapted to the process of transition between environments rather than to any particular one. Having developed a model of culture and consciousness—human traits that are both fundamental to our humanity, and in inherent tension with one another—Heather Heying and Bret Weinstein posit that the 21st century is either a dead-end for humanity, or a gateway to something as yet unanticipated. In this discussion, Dr. Heying and Dr. Weinstein will present a model for how humans address such predicaments.
