  1. I found this episode fascinating. I appreciated Radin's questions, trying to make sure he understood the question, before answering! So refreshing to hear an academic trying to plot the landscape of ESP phenomena with a scientific (repeatable and falsifiable) approach. And thank you, Radin, for providing specific papers for us to consider.

  2. What an absolute legend. I've broken through some stone cold normies over the years by just showing them the "Science and the Taboo of Psi" video. Will always have a lot of respect for Dean Radin.

  3. Dear Mr. Tsakiris !
    You're shows are like a cellar of great wines : every time, when I'm looking through, I'm finding sth fascinating.
    This interview with Mr. Radin, is like case of old Bordeaux or Pinot Noir, that was left there for unexpecting visitor.
    To my great joy, I stumbled upon it and I'm tasting it and I need to admit – it's better with every sip (specially that I'm sober form over 5 years now :).
    So please Mr. Tsrakiris, keep this shows coming !
    Much Love from Poland and let the Good Force be with You !!! 🙂

  4. That was a fascinating conversation and Dean Radin is a really smart guy, but something really bothers me about him. It's been bothering me for years except finally he sort of let the cat out of the bag (if only a little bit). Cognigenetics isn't a discipline so much as a corporate entity. It's at the cutting edge of altering brain function at the genetic level. Whoa there! Is this really how we want to treat the exponential rise in mental health problems? By permanently manipulating people's brains… rather than say by altering society to make life more bearable? Then comes the kicker. Dean Radin is literally advocating for the Borg or something very much like it. So suddenly I'm wondering if he's ever seen Bodysnatchers because he actually sounds a lot like one of the pod guys trying to convince us that it's a better, happier, kinder way of living. So that's why he kind of gives me the creeps I guess. Yep, he's a fascinating character but turn's out he's an ardent transhumanist, although when Alex asks directly about transhumanism he feigns ignorance. But this is all transhumanism 101. And that's what the billionaires are into, right? Or am I being unfair?

  5. I demand more viewers and more subs. Good lord the internet is full of information how do most people not find their way to this topic/content?

    Thank you both!

  6. put a poster up lock the room then ask all the psi an people who claim to have a gift…. what's the poster. reapt experiment 50 times with new posters an we know if its real or not

  7. It's becoming clear that with all the brain and consciousness theories out there, the proof will be in the pudding. By this I mean, can any particular theory be used to create a human adult level conscious machine. My bet is on the late Gerald Edelman's Extended Theory of Neuronal Group Selection. The lead group in robotics based on this theory is the Neurorobotics Lab at UC at Irvine. Dr. Edelman distinguished between primary consciousness, which came first in evolution, and that humans share with other conscious animals, and higher order consciousness, which came to only humans with the acquisition of language. A machine with primary consciousness will probably have to come first.

    The thing I find special about the TNGS is the Darwin series of automata created at the Neurosciences Institute by Dr. Edelman and his colleagues in the 1990's and 2000's. These machines perform in the real world, not in a restricted simulated world, and display convincing physical behavior indicative of higher psychological functions necessary for consciousness, such as perceptual categorization, memory, and learning. They are based on realistic models of the parts of the biological brain that the theory claims subserve these functions. The extended TNGS allows for the emergence of consciousness based only on further evolutionary development of the brain areas responsible for these functions, in a parsimonious way. No other research I've encountered is anywhere near as convincing.

    I post because on almost every video and article about the brain and consciousness that I encounter, the attitude seems to be that we still know next to nothing about how the brain and consciousness work; that there's lots of data but no unifying theory. I believe the extended TNGS is that theory. My motivation is to keep that theory in front of the public. And obviously, I consider it the route to a truly conscious machine, primary and higher-order.

    My advice to people who want to create a conscious machine is to seriously ground themselves in the extended TNGS and the Darwin automata first, and proceed from there, by applying to Jeff Krichmar's lab at UC Irvine, possibly.

  8. The humanities: One foot in the cave. The science of humanities: One foot out of the cave. We're peaking around the cave corner and seeing something amazing we still don't fully understand. An awakening of sorts, but the majority of humanity is still living mentally and socially in the Dark Ages. (Religion, Materialism…) While the rest of us, are like a bat out of hell, trying to get to the light at the end of the tunnel/cave. Here we are, talking/listening to the stuff that will get us there.

  9. In the book Seth Speaks, Seth talks about 3 great civilizations that came before our present civilization. To skip right to a detail on 1 of them, Seth talked about a thin, physically weak society that was highly telepathic. They feared violence and went underground, mastering the technology used to live underground. They were so in fear of violence they altered their own bodies/brains to not react to violence or violent motivations. I'm simplifying this but Seth pointed out that this was the wrong idea and had they faced their emotion it could have led them beyond the fear causing much of their behavior. I think Seths real spiritual message was to learn the relationship between the nonphysical you and what seems to 'happen' to you.

  10. Good to see a responsible scientist open to any possibilities. This is how science should be practiced, letting the data decide what’s what. I hope the future of science is more humble.

  11. Not dwelling here long. Stopped by to catch this Dean Radin interview.
    It all seemed innocuous until some questions toward the end (which as a trained analyst raised a major red flag for me). They just boggled my mind. To me it seemed somebody wanted their bias confirmed, and reading the change in Dean's demeanour I thought he may shut it all down. However, he conducted himself admirably. He's a pro.

  12. Jesus dude, Dean is nowhere as brainwashed by religions as you and your small minded audience are, he is not going to give into your stupid morality good or bad discussions – the guy is waaaay above you. There is such thing as conditionig that is not just limited to materialism, you know? Airy fairy need for greater purpose is also conditioned by religions so small minds behave, otherwise there would be a zoo. Leave Dean alone, your show used to be good and then you lost it into idiocy of Qanon.

  13. Dean is legend in da field but unfortunately sumhow he has turned into da new naom chomsky, now supporting da system with this whole push 4 madatory vax. Life is full surprises definitely

  14. I would love to see Joe Rogan have Neil Degrasse Tyson and Dr. Dean Radin on his show at the same time. But Joe would never do that because both him AND Neil Degrasse Tyson are too narrow minded; set in their "beliefs" and terrified of having their illusions shattered.

  15. Dean Radin, you attempted to explain something about buddhism, I am required to test you.
    Please explain why all bodhisattvas are buddhas and one reason a bodhisattva would not tell someone they are a buddha.
    Vairocana will curse you if you don't. I haven't communicated with Vairocana in 6 months, I suggest this is pressing.

    My regular contact is Ελλιστέα.

  16. Dean shouldn't be giving people mRNA Gene Therapy Vaccines to make them more Psychic. He should be giving willing participants Psilocybin and LSD and other Classical Psychedelics. End of discussion. And I will also add that unity with the All actually paradoxically liberates the uniqueness of the Individual. It's not about losing your identity into the Hive Mind. I agree with a lot of your ideas, but definitely have a fundamental disagreement with you on this very end snippet of this interview.
