Podcast: On the Objective – Markets Are Desperate For Clarity – Steven Menking – 05.18.2020

05.18.2020

Steven returns for another economic update to cover the important scenarios that are unfolding all around us. Each and every one of us can and must have an impact on the mindset of both those around us and more broadly by passing along information in a responsible, composed, and measured manner. We are facing a pivotal choice between freedom and tyranny, and none of us can sit this one out. There is desperation for good news and clarity at the moment based on the way markets are behaving. Mindset matters more and more. Be safe, be sane, and be steady!

Podcast: The Amateur Society – The Bed Of Procrustes – The Republic Of Letters – 05.14.2020

05.14.2020

Welcome back to The Amateur Society for another set of aphorisms from The Bed of Procrustes by Nassim Nicholas Taleb. Our goal in this series is to demonstrate that philosophy is neither boring nor unapproachable. Everyone must engage with our own thoughts and dig deeper to discover things about ourselves, our relationships, and the world around us. Join us as Steven goes through important topics in practical philosophy and demonstrates how any amateur can begin to access more challenging materials. Thanks again for joining us on The Amateur Society!

Podcast: The Amateur Society – Don’t Discard Wisdom – 10.21.2019

2019.10.22

Welcome back to The Amateur Society for another stimulating conversation! This discussion focuses on wisdom, what it is, and why it is important. It may seem obvious that wisdom is good and worthwhile to pursue, but our culture has shifted in several ways that have in many instances led to a prioritization of education and intelligence over wisdom. We unpack these different definitions and make an appeal that all of us must pursue wisdom wholeheartedly in this generation. We hope you will share this broadcast with someone who needs to hear it. Thanks again for joining us on The Amateur Society!

Podcast: The Amateur Society – Information Theory And Digital Physics – 06.20.2017

DigitalPhysics

Following up on our series of technological discussions, tonight we will zoom all the way out to talk about what the digital age is potentially revealing about the structure of the universe. We have discussed digital physics in previous conversations, but now is an excellent time to revisit these ideas. Once we get this backdrop in place we will then come back in for a closer look at blockchain technologies and the cryptocurrency space.

What Does Digital Physics Have To Do With Hanjin Shipping?

No, fellow amateurs, I have not delved into a John Nash style madness a la ‘A Beautiful Mind’. However, I may in fact out myself as a quintessential nerd by admitting that when the movie came out and I was 13 I wept at the loss of intellectual genius portrayed in the film. I’d like to blame hormone imbalances due to puberty, but instead I’ll just own up to it. After all, I’m going to be writing about digital physics here, so we’re getting into some unorthodox, nerdy material in any case.

What is digital physics?

In brief, it is the theory that the fundamental component of our current reality is information. Not stuff – matter and mass – not energy – frequency and vibration – but information. Some have used this idea to argue that the entire universe is a computer simulation. I know what you’re thinking…
