James Harriet, Auburn, Aspirin discussed on Coast to Coast AM with George Noory
Avars are robots just covered in stem cells and the Deford wife's smokey back in the ninety or whenever kind of makes that point also. And I also hurt one of the guests from coast to coast say that eve was alone. She didn't come from Adams threats. So that. Have you host behind all this? It's either that or Lilith what do you think of that third? Mr ron's. Well, first of all, welcome. I grew up just outside of Auburn. So did you wonderful here to somebody from Auburn? Thank you very much. You know at this point. I think we are maybe not synthetic robots. But at this point, a we are biological robots for lack of better term. I did a lot of research on human consciousness about for another book where the question is. Where is the seat of human consciousness? How do we think our brains form of consciousness, which is again when we talk about a how how does an AI from consciousness, and I spoke to some neurophysiologist who believe that the seat of human consciousness is outside of our human skulls that is actually in a quantum field that has generated by our brain. And again, he showed me his research behind that. Which is very convincing that when it comes to human thought human consciousness that it's not just in the in the cells in our bodies, not they the the gray matter in our skull. It's it's these quantum fields that are generated by the electrical activity in our brain. And that's the seat of consciousness. So if it comes to we are we? Synthetic creatures. Are we are is our thought processes, you know, outside of of what seems to be biological bodies. Sure. Yeah. That seems to be supportive of neuro physiology that human consciousness is beyond these skulls that we carry around with us. What draws James the growth of a I is that the human mind or what is it? I mean, you were talking earlier. How would they seem to replicate themselves now? But who's really pushing it? I still think at this point it is human driven. But were right at the cusp or that's going to change rapidly. You know, we're already seeing a is building AI. We're seeing a is replicating themselves. We're seeing a is showing an independence that they haven't had before. So I think we're right at the cusp of seeing that level of human control beginning to disappear. And I think an example of that is that algorithm. Blackbox the fact that even though we created this this this box. We don't know how it stinks. We don't know the pathway. It goes from a plus we'll see we don't know how it came to conclusion of c-, and so already we're seeing our -bility control that slipping out of our fingers. All right back to the phones, we go Tom in the Bronx, take it away, Tom. Yes. I like to say that as a veterinarian have you ever heard the story that more farmers and the people in towns that didn't have doctors around them was saved by veterinarians over the years. Have you ever heard that story? I have. Yes. I again, it goes back to I read. Growing up. And this is a question you always getting when you're a vet school. What inspired you to be a vet and one of the the books that inspired me was the the stories of told by James Harriet? These were, you know, rural rural veterinary in English countryside. And it's surprising. How much not just specifically for human medicine? But I always tell people that when it came comes to being a veterinarian half. My job is I think human psychology a lot of it's you know, trying to figure out what that person behind the other side of the exam tables asking. But also, you know, we've. Human beings, aren't that much different from a dog or cat from a standpoint of physiology? You know, when it comes to, you know, practicing medicine. I would not be surprised if there aren't veterinarians that in in in dire situations that they're going to be able to perform. Services to treat humans. How are we treating people who practice rich witchcraft today, James? That's a good question. I mean at this point there are still. Africa. There's a and this is a sad story is in Africa. The. Individuals that are born with albums that are born. But basically, all by knows are considered to be magical creatures in many villages in Africa. Unfortunately, these individual oftentimes are hunted down and killed because they believe that Albinos Bodley's have magical properties. So we're still seeing a certain level of of. Which crap that's still very actively being believed. Then we have that side of the spectrum that sort of superstitious born superstition born. But then also we have the the practices of of Wicca that are to me what is going back to those those women of old that we're using pagan medicines herbs to to keel in. Treat the sick that I think there are many pagan rituals that have that are that have real value that we've dismissed as being because we can't explain it. We dismiss it as being. You know, superstition when their actual is basis behind that, you know, back when people used to use willow bark to treat, which is what aspirin is which but aspirins based on you know, we see a lot of that word these days what what's considered to be sounds like superstition, you know, scrape this bark off this tree will make you feel better. Sounds dumb. Sounds like, you know, you're just you're not. But there's there's a basis in reality behind a lot of these pagan rituals, and a lot of wick I think calls back to that it calls back to that time. Whether it's ancient knowledge that though we may not at this point understand how that happens or what the process that turns willow bark into into aspirin that that treats us there's there's a basis that we just haven't figured out yet. There's so much. I think of this point that. We don't.
