Listen: Uman, Canonic Field discussed on TED Radio Hour
"Benign only Uman's beliefs such stories. Into what you're saying. Is that these these stories are what allowed us to organize and spread out. Because if you think about any religion and economic system any political system at the basis you will find some fictional story about God's about money about human rights about the nation. All these things are fictional stories. They are not biological reality. But it's a very powerful and convincing and benign fiction. That helps us organize our political and legal systems in the modern world. Take for example, the legal field most legal systems today in the world of based on a belief in Uman rights, but what are you? Thank you mean being cutting open look inside, you'll find the heart the kidneys Nauru ones hormones DNA, but you won't find any rights, the only place, you find rights is the stories that we have invented and spread around over the last few centuries. They may be very positive stories. Very good stories, but they're still just fictional stories. The tweet invented the same is true of the canonic field. I can take this. Worthless piece of paper go to the supermarket give it to a complete stranger whom I've never met before and get inex- change real bananas, which can actually eat money. In fact, is the most successful story ever invented untold humans."
