When Life Is A Movie
"It was like a movie screen. There is no need to look in the camera. it's right they're is lending to stare into it. It's over there and right there so all you must do his be yourself. It often feels weird when you're going around people but the good news is the chair in the movies and all you must do read the script. Study the lines and let the screen capture what needs to complete the sink. Okay action right now. Feeling like a triangle. But all you see is obtuse but type of fail missus quantity should you be four with an accent. He felt as if you should change since this is a movie and all so you don't understand that when you have others depending on you. Things seem harder when it's hard process then when you're just playing jane doin- what she does. He have to watch your step so you don't become a blooper image heels. Why do you have to where. He wants a tennis shoes or more comfortable. Or maybe even boots flats. Oh so you're trying to explain to me when you're in the movies you must go with the character role. You're playing sometimes when things get too hard explicit language so that changes the guidance on the parental control. If you have children please be warned. Cut cut cut taking the script skimming up and down so now you could end up being abused and lie to from someone who thought cared but you know sometimes people have bad days to does your day have to include someone who has no intentions of being a part of what you have done. How about the world. Do you think you're making the world. Thinks negative about someone who you can't be a part of that show action quiet on the set you get news today. The doctor called told you the stress level could be harmful to you so it st. Aren't you the one going around town trying to make a fool out of someone that you barely know. Oh so that's funny I tell you what. I don't have to take this of so much better things on with me and don't worry if i don't care if you're not impressed because the star of this show is you know see what's a slight when people look for mistakes in you try to create or rewrite. What is yours try. The lotto is better than this movie. I see forcing someone to relive something that happened long ago. What a minute. You don't move lines. I've been through this before but action when you live it when the incident happened to you over time you could remember that dream we had. I say it was a flashback. Or others would like a deja vu the movies so silent. Why sooner ruckus nobar saint for me to talk about. So what is the question at hand. Living to make an oscar or an emmy. So if i'm walking down the red carpet and tend to slip and fall. I can gracefully get up and smile left at all hold it. I thought i read about what happened on the screen in media. I didn't let me see what it says. That's not bad where did speak to come in at. Oh no this person is not me. I have found someone else who is trying to imitate. What has happened to me when you find out. Those shoes you got in was a lot more for them. To handle you have lived you have learned and you have been taught in the movie of life not to trust in everyone or even speak about or even. Show them what you had happened because it tends to be online with someone who was not you should the mask be removed to uncover the fake fax that it was not in. I looked and looked the camera's still on you. I guess it's time to get up. Wipe the dirt of my jeans. I continue with the movie. Trust me when all that you have put into it would be a waste to give up now. Just as the scenes tend to change the starring role issue cut. That was a good take. People tomorrow is a new day. Get plenty of wrist. Enjoy the night but remember the lines are not subject to change. It has been written in the script so you can take charge and character leading the screen. No you're not afraid of letting the world know what has happened on the screen because somewhere someone may just have it on camera.
Dj vu in Alzheimer's research, and OWS's legacy
"Joe biden is heading to the white house. The us is grappling with an economic crisis and biotech is debating the amyloid hypothesis. Twenty twenty. one is starting off quite a bit like two thousand nine. Thanks in part to ally lilly and some surprising data on a new treatment for alzheimer's disease the biggest story coming out of j. p. morgan this week was news that a lily drug called banana managed to significantly slowed the progression of alzheimer's in small clinical trial. So why this is so notable denham ab like so many failed drugs before it is designed to attack toxic proteins in the brain called amyloid and that was reason enough to reignite the decade plus long argument over whether clearing out amyloid can actually make a difference for patients with alzheimer's disease so before we get into the implications of all that we should summarize what we actually know. Here's what lily disclosed in a study involving two hundred and seventy two patients with early stage alzheimer's those who got to non-arab some of their cognition and function decline. At a rate that was thirty two percent slower than those who got a placebo. The company used a metric called the integrated alzheimer's disease rating scale which we should note is a different measurement than what we've seen in past trials and that's about all the detail we got so far. Lilly said it would present full data at a conference in march. But until then we've only got a press release to go off of so i. I'm curious what you guys think. What are the implications of this. All the caveats that would apply to any alzheimer study. Let alone one this small but it arrives as we await word from the fda on a different Amyloid targeting treatment from biogen called which we spent a lot of time talking about on this podcast and then here comes this lily. News like a comet from the sky. How does this change kind of the state of play of amyloid so to me. This is just it's like deja vu right. it's we sort of fall into into this pattern of just keep recycling. The same arguments about the you know the efficacy of amyloid. Whether you're drugs that target amyloid are effective in alzheimer's and i i don't know what to make of these data. I i mean. I think what it says is that we will be having this debate for years to come. Even after we get a decision on atacama. I totally agree. I mean the sense of deja vu was so strong. I was looking back at articles trying to see what had happened through the years with these drugs targeting beta amyloid and i got back to you know twenty ten. When a lily drug called sima geza stat failed and there was this great npr story actually. Quoting bob langres who at the time was at forbes announced bloomberg my old colleague saying that this was really going to call into question the amyloid hypothesis. This was eleven years ago And we had daybreak on. Cnbc this week to talk with him. He's the ceo of eli lilly. And you know. He was the first one to note. How many failures. They've had in their thirty years of working on alzheimer's disease at the company. I'm focused on on this target One thing he noted that's different about this. Trial is its size. It was small and he said that was the reason he was more optimistic about the signal. They saw that they saw such a strong signal in a small study. Made him feel like it. Had to be an even stronger signal He noted that in the past they had gone to these very large phase three trials because they thought they would have to order to see a signal and here they did this small trial to see if this was even worth pursuing a before going to that big one so i thought that was pretty interesting but i also think we're still arguing over whether amyloid is a cause of alzheimer's or like jeff jonas. The former ceo of sage. Who's still at sage in a different role You know he. He's put it as he thinks. It's more like a scar or a scab where you pull it off. That doesn't fix the underlying wound. And we just don't have those answers yet
"deja vu" Discussed on The Brain Candy Podcast
"Oh please don't also this is a life hack and insider tip that i have done and we've done in our house. We are only a house too but we we get meals for four and then two days in a row or leftovers for lunch the next day your life hack there you go. Everybody was like all. I wanted meal plan. That's like new year's resolutions. Right do it there you go. You're welcome tell me about your beans. Oh my gosh yes so. This is really funny. I stumbled across this article. That i have to give a tip of the hat to the author of this article. A guy named james felton. Who wrote james felton you yes. He's great super funny. So funny my favorite was how it was written. Okay so the title of the author is pathetic. Believes that beans are humans and that may have killed him so you know where we get factory and theorem. The triangle thing is that squared plus be squared equals c squared believe. That's it so he. It's so funny. When we take these the line between genius and insanity right you know and sometimes people who have these genius ideas also have some ideas that maybe art so genius so he was totally kooky crazy and he had this belief. I don't know where he got this and neither today in this article. That's and i'm trying to think of how he would come up with us but right he believed that your soul when you died your soul got transferred into another animal and he saw that was like a claim for why he stopped eating eating meat and he also believed that humans and beans which is weird. We call human beings which is not on any way the same thing. Humans and beans came from the same source. And here's why this is hilarious. The like for a guy who came up with like a a theory. That's like like science visit. He designed this experiment. I put that in quotes where took a bunch of beans and he buried them and then waited for a week for them to grow for your few weeks. And when he dug them up He noticed that they looked like human fetuses. And that was all the evidence he lord yes and so he concluded that getting beings would basically be cannibalism and so he had this commun- like this this group like he had. He was kind of like a cult leader in a weird way where he had this group of followers. And this commune that he ran where he forbid people from eating them and he said that means could contain souls of the debt. Wow yeah and he went so far to say that smashing beans counted as murder. Yup oh my god. Isn't that hilarious for real. it's bunker it's so crazy and like a and so like some of the funniest things Some of the funniest things in the arctic roll. Like i was just going to read you this part because it's so hilarious and so well written. According to a legend a son of a noble man named chi-lan attempted to get into is being colt and then in parentheses come for the lack of beans stay for the triangles whole area. So great great. I was like this guy. Have you cracking up i. I'm going to link this article because it's so funny. Areas has to read it because laughs are so good but he was rejected for his unwillingness to abide by the by the training rules which involved five years of silence before you even get to the triangles right. That's that's always like. I have to read you so funny. So naturally kyle on formed a mob Just look how things were done back then. In order to in order to attack with agress and burned the communist buildings as they fled the mob would stab them to death but pathetic managed to escape. The mob thinks to his friends who formed a human bridge to get him out of the building unfortunately he fled and the worst happened. The path took him right into a bean field. Refusing trampled through the fields committing genocide like beans zillah stood there and was stabbed to death of crime. I'm not the time was so heaney so heinous. It was on par with forking a bean. This cannot be true. There are various other theories about his death that include a after his followers killed in the fire. He died by suicide or else starved hiding from the mob which is a lot less beanie and fun. So it's like he died doing what he loved. Not eating not eating beans whow about. I don't i cannot even not smart and it was like a broken clock thing where he just got one thing right or do you think it's like one of those things where like you. I just imagined mathematicians with like the the the boards with all of the triangles everywhere. And now he's like seeing triangles and everything and you know like when like he's looking for stuff that isn't there because in that worked in one yes and then it's kind of like if the guy who accidentally discovered penicillin just started that worked. I'm just gonna do about a whole bunch of other accidents and then started combining weird things and like you know. I don't know right or maybe the same people who discovered that if you like a frog you get high. You gotta look like a bunch of other animals. And that's weird. That just seems like a real stretch to be like that kind of looks. Like a fetus. A big stretch and then the funding and then the article also says like when he's talking about that like bearing he's like he got a bunch of beans and buried them not noticing how this is rarely done to humans. Believe that that guy's a total idiot. Total idiot yeah we go we go out that theorem like you know or right and we've just been committing bean aside can penis. Oh me neither so i. I'm going to link that article. Because i was just reading it and i it sounds like it could be an article from the onion. Yea but it's not it's like you know. What do we know about what happened back. Then but it is funny to hear the stories of of you know just like the the insane things that people do. Everybody's people weird weird. I don't know people are everybody's got weird quirks. Do you think that the problem with how sometimes genius and insanity are a little too close for comfort. Do you think that that's the thing where like ignorance is bliss so then if you know a lot than it's misery for because i don or why is it. You know 'cause. I wonder you know like what is intelligence. What is i if you listen to. Yeah my I would say good friend. But i don't know in relief just in my head. Roberts polski anthropologist. He says that the things that make us human are like the ability create metaphors Like compare things. This is like this. You have a relationship. I can look at it. You can hold up a watermelon.

Why can't you take a stranglehold on the side on you finish them off a simply because one of shen normally to play contracting and meaning playing contract in this in fact that you don't on the ball you don't you leave the ball to the others and you run after the ball and guatemala just made an interview seeing that they've been struggling My city because of the ball and they were running after the ball indicate the they were getting tired.

U.S. plans to ship 6 million Moderna doses
"Vaccine out very soon. On Tuesday, the FDA confirmed that modern is to dose vaccine is safe and effective. The first week of the rollout of the Madonna vaccine were expected to ship out six million doses. The government also bought another 100 million doses from and Erna or a total of 200 million at a cost of 3.2 billion. More on all the good vaccine is will speak to Sarah over mall Healthcare reporter at Politico. This is basically deja vu for last week, so the fighter vaccine it was authorized by FDA last week on very similar data, which is why we are pretty confident about the trajectory for this, Madonna one. We expect that after a expert advisory panel meets on Thursday, the FDA could be authorizing it as In as Friday morning as it did the visor. And then we will have a CDC panel meeting over the weekend to talk about recommendations for who this goes to first. But because they are really similar vaccines, they have a very similar technology called Messenger RNA. They also have almost identical, effective district. We can expect some of the same things. There are some important distinctions for them. Oh, Darrin. I want especially with her and populations that they have different data for. For instance, it shows that it's more effective and younger people than it is in people over the age of 65. That could be a really important distinction. As we roll these this is out and find out that maybe the size or one is more ideal for nursing homes and the Magenta. One might be more ideal for people who work in high exposure areas but are necessarily is older. Somebody who's any more vulnerable situation. So these are the things we're gonna find out over the next few days. But All right. We could, as of next week have a million more doses to be shipping out across the country. The initial round of doses are obviously limited. How many doses air we're gonna be able to see Go out in the first push. So they're actually really more of the mod Janet. This is out in the first post than there were of the Visor. One's government officials have said that nearly six million will be put out into more than 3000 sites. Next week. If we do have this authorized, which were expected to that's in comparison to shoot 0.9 million doses from Kaiser that going out as we speak and 2.9 million from visor that had been held back for a second dose so between the two of them Each has promised 20 million doses. A piece this month, which is 40 million total. But they all are Cheetos regiments. You can think of this as 20 million very high need people getting doses this month. There was some criticism with the government's action on the visor vaccine for not buying that extension or extra doses. But on this case with the Madonna vaccine, the U. S. It exercise their right to buy 100 million additional doses of the Madonna vaccine. Tell us a little bit about that. And then the cost associated with it? Because this one is a little more closely tied to operation warp speed. The government gave Moderna more money to develop this whole thing. Exactly. And so they had options with both of those pharmaceutical companies to buy 100 million doses originally, But the option to buy hundreds of millions more with each of them to christen lately has been that they did not exercise that option when they could have with visor, So they had an option to buy up to 500 million doses from them. And according to size, sir, they offered that to the government multiple times in the government didn't take them up on that. And so they moved on. They have signed multiple different agreements with other countries in the world. I mean, think about the entire world Once he's highly effective vaccines so kind of to them that loss or TOC shore up our supplies here in the United States, the United States announced late last week that they would buy 100 million more of the Modano vaccine, and that brings the total cost more damage to 3.2. Million dollars, which is I popping. But when you think about how much his company which has never actually mass produced a vaccine or product ever before Madonna, this is going to be their first authorized products. The huge undertaking. That's why there's so much money going towards this. So you can think about this as the U. S trying to shore up its supplies in this arena, but it also has multiple other agreements out there with Six manufacturers total to get if everything goes right, 900 billion doses that might seem like Ah, lot like way too much for the U. S. But we don't know how many of those air going toe work. We even just learned last week that another vaccine from Sanofi and GlaxoSmithKline is going to be delayed until the end of 2021 because they didn't get really good results. So this is why the U. S government betting so big Yeah, and the modern of vaccine, for its part is easier to ship and store them. The Fizer one is so you know, maybe this vaccine will make it into rule areas a little more easily. So there's benefits you know, and pros and cons to each one kind of on this, so at least a good thing that they bought a bunch of those extra orders. And last thing I wanted to ask real quick was just about How much the Madonna vaccine protects. There's been things made that it can reduce severe effects of coronavirus. They're hoping obviously, that it'll reduce transmission rates. But that's kind of what the focus was of their study as well. And just how effective this would be. So that was something we learned in the Food and Drug Administration briefing documents Tuesday morning was that not only is this effective broadly, but there's a suggestion that after the first dose in my daddy didn't have curbed infections, and you might think that's pretty obvious. That's what vaccine you just supposed to do. But we don't actually know yet how effective vaccines would be a preventing transmission, which is kind of the ultimate goal. We don't want people to have to get sick in the first place. This indicates that the magenta vaccine might be able to do that and then, like you said with severe Covert illness. There are really promising results from the Madonna vaccine. There were 30 severe illnesses in the placebo arm and none in the vaccine arm. That's great news. So we actually have between this adviser to really promising candidates. First out of the gate. We kind of couldn't expect the Better To be honest, too. Now, you know, it's the challenge of getting this out to people getting into the people who need it most right away and meeting the demand that we know we're gonna have and the United States and also in the world.

Havent I been here before
"Welcome to kiss myths and mystery. Siamese your host kit crumb. I've got to mention that if you're hearing a little background noise there's nothing wrong with your computing device or however you're listening to this podcast is my neighbor dominate away. Who's drilling well while that said. Today's topic is a deja vu. When you go to a new place me someone that you've never met before and had the feeling that you knew that person or to that place. Well you're not alone. But i deviate a little bit when i was researching this story a french carver. Not a real name said. She grew up in las vegas but eventually moved to shasta city california. She told me it wasn't uncommon for her to have the name of a friend that she grew up with pop into her head. And within minutes would run into that person at shasta. Although janice experiences nada deja vu. I felt it was in the same league and i just couldn't help explain it to my listeners. Okay onward we go. Wikipedia says deja vu feeling that one has lived through the present situation before the phrase translates literally as already seen although some interpret deja vu in a paranormal context mainstream science approaches reject of dacia who is pre cognition or prophecy. So how does science explain deja-vu they the world of science has four possible causes of what is referred to as vu. First attention explanations of deja vu involve an initial perception that is made under degraded attention which is then followed by a second. Take under full attention for example. If you're about to unlock the front door of your house and you momentarily are distracted by a noise in the distance when you return to the task locking the door the first perception may seem further off in the past the distraction that separates these two perceptions could be est fleeting. I said i blink. Their second explanation is memory explanations. They make the assumption that some detail of the do experiences familiar but the source of this familiarity has been forgotten. The premise of this explanation is that people encounter countless things during the course of the day. But don't pay attention to all of the information later. Processing of information may occasionally induce. The million era at deja vu. Then there is the next explanation dual processing explanation so vu suggested to usually synchronous cognitive processes become momentarily as synchronous for example familiarity and retrieval could become out of sync alternate league perception and memory could become a synchronous and finally neurological explanations for deja vu attributed the phenomenon to either a small temporal lobe seizure in a person without epilepsy to a delay in neural transmission between the eyes ears or other perceptual organs in higher order processing centers in the brain. Wow do processing. Explanations have received a lot of attention. They are much more philosophical and theoretical and less mechanistic but do processing explanations can be tested in the lab. Similarly neurological explanations are appealing in their neurological basis and seem logical but again we lack the advanced technology to test them. Thus dual processing explanations are less germane to researchers instead attentional memory explanations are best supported by what we know about cognition and could be tested vertically. Well it sounds to me like the scientific explanations can't be tested and repeated in a generally scientific method. Wow that takes the fun out of experiencing deja vu on monday. I'll provide explanations for deja vu from a pseudoscience or paranormal point of view. And we'll see what stands out
Joe Exotic wrote Kim Kardashian a letter begging her to ask Trump to pardon him
"Joe exotic had written to kim kardashian. And i'm totally not surprised and i honestly thought that that would be his tactic to try to get out of jail honestly. Didn't we say that before. Like didn't we say how funny would be if that happened and then it actually happened. I feel like we did. I feel like we talked about it. And then when i was watching it it's like deja vu right like i was sitting here watching and i was like. Oh wow i feel like dougherty happened in life right. we did. She say that it happened or it came. How how did you find out. Yeah so it was on. Et and it just was saying that Et had obtained the letter from the tiger king and that He had just to her trying to get a presidential pardon from donald trump. And and the letter said i know you have never met me. Never want to but i do believe However i do believe that you hold the values of our justice system dear to your heart. I am writing this letter. Not as joe exotic but the person. Joseph malegaon passage asking you to please help me by taking just ten minutes of your life and placing a call to president trump to look at my two hundred and fifty seven page pardon. It's all the evidence that i'm innocent and i asked him to my part into. I can return home to my husband dylan and to my father so okay question i. It's been so long since i've seen it all. What is he exactly in jail for. I don't know abuse. Because i feel like what he did was kind of animal abuse. It definitely was neglect and Yeah it just says that. While he was serving he serving twenty two years because he was convicted of plotting like a murder for hire. Oh right that's right that's right okay. And so then it said in his letter is that i have lost. Fifty seven years of work mizzou. My animals. my mother has died. My dad is dying. And i've been taken away from my husband who i loved dearly. Everyone is so busy making movies getting interviews selling stuff and dressing up like me that everyone forgot. I'm a real live person imprisoned and kept from even telling my own my own story for something that i didn't do so he was just asking him to give him a phone call and just promising that no one has to know that she even called

"The smithsonian is temporarily closing all of its museums starting november twenty third because of growing concerns over the spread of covid nineteen in the region and across the us that means locally eight smithsonian facilities including the national zoo will close dc's covid nineteen seven day average is steadily inching back up to the rate of positive cases. We saw back in may when cases per one hundred thousand people were at their highest in the washington region. To be honest.

Donald Trump and Joe Biden locked in tense fight to the finish
"Inskeep. Good morning across this country, local election officials are still counting ballots. Some have been at it. All night summer taking a brief break and we'll continue today. The presidential election is undecided. As we speak. Former Vice President Joe Biden has 238 electoral votes, which is short of the 270 he needs. President Trump is a bit farther from 2 70. But as enough states in play that he too, could win. We're leading with those facts, and we keep them in view at all times throughout our coverage this morning as we hear claims about them both true and false. NPR's Franco or Dhoni asses on the line. Now he covers the White House. Franco. Good morning. Good morning. I'm looking at the map here. The electoral map it NPR dot org's, which is really helpful. It's based on tallies by The Associated Press. Very conservative. Very smart calls by The Associated Press about what states are undecided in six of them seem undecided. Nevada, Wisconsin, Michigan, Pennsylvania, North Carolina, Georgia. Some of them do lean one way or the other. What is making them hard to call? Yeah. I mean, it's really been such you know such a last few hours, and there's so much to go. I mean, the states that were that made that difference or states like Florida and Arizona. I mean, there's so much going back and forth. I mean, The night was really interesting because you know, Trump started out outperforming predictions that the pollsters once again you know, those thoughts of a swift victory by Biden were quickly dashed. Trump officials were actually texting me early in the night that they were feeling deja vu from 2016. Especially when Trump took Florida, which was a must win state for the For the president. You know, he's successfully targeted Latino voters in South Florida with his message about socialism. But you know, as we know moment, um, kind of took a turn when outlets started calling Arizona for buying, which was a huge win for the Democrats. Biden spoke calling for patients and then those of us who know the president who could have covered him for so long knew he was not going to allow bite and to have the last word of the evening. And so let's hear those statements in a moment. But first, I just do want to be clear on these six states that I mentioned. We're talking here about what absentee ballots, mail in ballots. That's what's uncounted here. Yes, That's right. There's they're millions and millions of absentee valets and mail in ballots that have yet to be counted in many of these states. I want to mention just one of them. Pennsylvania. Our colleague, Pam Fessler, who covers voting noted that there's something well north of two million. I think, she said 2.5 million or so. Mail in ballots in Pennsylvania alone. That is a state the president's leading that is a state the president could really use and would take him a long way toward to 70, but that he cannot claim yet Michigan is in this similar category. There. A couple of other states that are leaning toward Biden, such as Wisconsin, at this moment in Nevada and Wisconsin has gone from tinted red tinted blue just in the last couple of hours now. In the midst of all this. There were these statements by the presidential candidates and let's hear the president first. He spoke in the early hours this morning. He had previously said he would not try to stampede a victory. He would not prematurely claim victory, and then he falsely claimed victory. Let's listen. I want to thank the American people for their tremendous support. Millions and millions of people voted for us tonight and Avery Sad Group of people. Is trying to disenfranchise that group of people and we won't stand for the president has been talking about mail in ballots, which had been used safely for years as a source of fraud. He's been doing that for months without any evidence, falsely, Franco did he present any evidence of fraud last night. No, he has not. I mean, you made that You just made the case that he's been kind of light laying the groundwork since the spring in the summer against mail in voting, you know, saying that votes shouldn't be counted after Election Day. In a way he's you know, carrying out threats that he made over the weekend, which was to go in with his lawyers, But, you know, he was pressed on this actually yesterday morning by one of his favorite programs, Fox and friends. And he clearly backed off that for threats, saying that Victor will on Ly be called when there is a victory, and so there's no reason to play games. So this is really a stunning reversal. Considering there is no victory. There is still

"Stir sticking definitely, not decision or that feeling like, Oh, I just WanNa sit down at work on this story. Then you tell somebody about Hewlett's release tinkered for sell. What do you do you start working on it then you find out two years later somebody only sold it, but it's going to be able. and. You could pick your cell say, yeah. That's a big part is just shutout everybody else and learn how to do that. Yes. Yes and that's true when you make it into the spotlight to because there's always gonna be some critics and we have to tune those out and just focus on what's true for us. Exactly. So you have another book called the grid exploring the hidden infrastructure of reality and I was taking a class some years ago with a teacher who taught something she Called Grid reading and she would lead us through this guided meditation imagining this grid I just remember looking kind of like a spiderweb and we would do readings four another person in the group. So you'd imagine the great coming down over the person and it would have points of light on it, and then you would go into the points of light and ask them. To, find out information for the person being read and one of the readings I did I went into one of the points of light will two different ones in the answers I got from my questions were specific names and this time those points of light were people and I figured well, this is a class I can say whatever and told the person it was a relative that. Had just crossed over and their grandfather. So I was getting medium ship for it through this method and I was kind of blown away by it. I've never tried to do meet him by have had plenty of visitations by my bedside. That's a whole nother story for another time. But I'm curious this story bears any resemblance to what you talk about in your book the grin email. Because what they wrote about who were trying to figure out what the structure of reality might look like if you Wanna Tron image, and so we envisioned the three dimensional read with lots of different layers going vertically horizontally, and now we move through one reality to another. Maybe what we dream maybe another one when we have deja Vu or if we have a pre cognitive vision or any kind of paranormal experience, but maybe some of that phenomenon is coming to us from other parts of the grid, and so we're at one point, the grid, but all of these other. Downside side could be other dimensions and other universes that were interacting with. That could help explain why? Domino's so fleeting and scattered, and it's not consistent. It's pops then out of existence is coming to us from other levels if the grid are we perceiving it as we move through the red at night but we cream. So that's kind of that was going, but it is similar that you're acces. Whether, you're doing a reading for someone that you're accessing information per somewhere other than your immediate point in space in time. So you're literally traveling down Ritter, cross the brand or up were it to find information whether past presidents future from another source whether it's a person or a spirit or kind of higher energy does similar I think it all speaks to the fact that reality is not just one layer. There's many many layers they're spending many different You know five decide top to bottom stacked on top of looks like a big giant, hugh? And different times we're moving around within that. Then we're interacting with other things within that grid. Interesting. Thank you for sharing that, and then before we go tell us where people can find you and any other offerings you'd like us to know about. Well, they can find me on my website Marie Jones Dot Com and one of my books are there try to keep pretty current and I'm also special that were in.
Whats the science behind bullying?
"Okay guys. I want to talk about bully. For. Me Back when I was in grade two, I was bullied. This one person made most of the air just miserable one day he just decided to torment me. Oh i. think he wanted to drive a wedge between me and a friend. The worst part was we used to be really good friends. We were like really really close and then he just. became. Randomly. evil. So. One day we were friends, and then the next day he just. Flip and he just came a jerk so. What's up with that? Like what do people just become bullies? And, it's not just me boiling is everywhere I looked into some of the statistics and it's not looking good for US guys. At least one in three students in Canada have reported being bullied recently and the rate of discrimination experienced by students who identifies lgbtq plus is three times higher than heterosexual students and girls are more likely to be bullied on the Internet them boys. So, put that guys. and. The worst part is that this stuff doesn't end as you grow up. Forty percent of Canadian workers experienced bullying on a weekly basis. But why like? Why are these numbers so hot? Is there some sort of evolutionary societal biological purpose to it? Is it something in our brains something that we've been born with. What is the scientific reason for bullying? I'm Kai. This is my podcast I asked why there are just so many good questions other than you. Really WanNA. Get Answer. What is deja-vu? How'd you songs get stuck in your head? Water animals. Sing. The dinosaurs died how did other animal survive? Why Space Dark? And what is the science of bullying? So I'm assuming all of you've been bullied at least once in your life. Yes sir. These are my friends. Piper Fin Cayden and Zoe were all kids here and we all have dealt with it at some point in our lives. For. Me Oftentimes, I feel like my friends needed knee for their entertainment. It would be weird because if they would be like teasing me or something and I would be like Oh. But these are my friends. These are Nice people why are they? Bullying me. For me. It's sort of something that I'm like currently experiencing is just someone at my school in my class who like they'll just jokingly show me and I think they take it too far. Sometimes, they just don't really know when to stop I. Just think like for me there is just like the little things that kind of like build up like there's this one person who Kana criticizes me like about. Maybe my grades or something like that and say that I'm not doing well, just like making up stuff which I think is very nice. Young guys. It's not a good feeling at all. It sucks you know and really bad blink can actually affect your life for a really longtime i. took a listen through some recent CBC stores on bullying and made me really really sad to hear from grownups who are still haunted by these heroin blink experiences that they had when they were young. I was a small kid. And being a small kid I was. Bullied a lot I was an easy target. I. Constantly get pushed around punched kicked bookstore on the hallway floor. I changed schools a couple of times about bullying followed me and I dropped out screwy sixty years old. But three of them after school would pin me down on the ground and push me down and hit me and kick me. I really became a shell of who I probably could have been. I was quite an emotional rack. I think it's something you just never really recover from. So I, think you know in a way we're playing with fire when we think that this is just something that everybody goes through or many people go through and there are consequences. If bullying is so painful and so hurtful for so many people why would anybody ever do it ever? Found? Someone why Could help me get to the bottom of this. Alot. This is Tony Vote. In the Department of Child, new studies at Brock University. He's a developmental psychologist. He spent a lot of time studying bullying his approach is multidisciplinary. So he thinks about it from an evolutionary biological and historical perspective. Even as his own laboratory studies it. So I am here to figure out what he's learned. So. What got you interested in bullying I was fully PRETTY UNORIGINAL I know. It's it's good motivation. Alone. Bullying is probably ubiquitous amongst life itself. I mean, you need that the pecking order and checking. The dominance hierarchy in wolves. Chimpanzees. Could also probably by many definitions seat amongst trees that compete with each other. Hold up hold up. So even trees are blowing. Each other is nothing sacred people. Some Bushes will inject toxins into more developing species beside them. So the strategy of being. To weaker individuals is for better for worse part of evolutionary strategy in general.

This is what the house is full of his brains. four-lane basically, the mud is he's when he went to the past to save her and these happen. And another thing that I didn't you know when we are talking about the voicemails doors beginning of the movie We didn't really explain that call from her friend but originally. When he played that that voicemail from a friend. that. Picked up and says like, are you joking you know? No No. I gotta go about someone with me hang up the phone. And we found that really interesting. Now we know because. When he got there. The lady. Clear was there and She did not. One hundred percent trust him because although his saint he's claiming to be a police officer he wasn. She didn't. Take him statement like normal police will do? So she immediately think okay this must be guided the the the Kidnap me because you know she was commerce she couldn't see his face at all through entire thing. So. She had him gunpoint. and.

She's she actually told the guy on the other line of. Okay, can you have them call me back? Here's the phone number and that's what we see at the beginning of the movie.

So she freaked out because everything he said is exactly what a friend said when she picked up the phone and says. You Know I. Are you kidding? Is this a joke? And and then she said, you know the same thing that we heard at the beginning of the movie like I'm with someone I gotTa hang up by.

"So I don't think it's a bad thing. I think some people. Get it at times of stress and some people can have like kind of pathological forms of it but I don't think it's a bad thing when we experience it. Okay. For those of you who don't know pathological means it means something related to a disease pretty much. So for the people with epilepsy getting Vu that counts as a pathological kind of deja Vu. But Chris says he's seen other weird bad types of Dejavu to just after completing my PhD when I worked in a memory clinic, there was a guy who came in and his complaint was unusual and he complains that he'd already been tested before in the memory clinic and his wife said. That was his problem instead of being forgetful he complained that everything was a repeat of something he had already done so that like what happened to get really frequent deja Vu it's a sad thing really because the people I, work with WHO do have. Very constant forms of deja Vu like this patient I was talking about the first guy I started working with. They become withdrawn and depressed because just as you say, they can't find anything new and if you think about your life what motivates you in love the good stuff is the new stuff. You don't want to watch the last episode of your favourite show you WanNa watch the new episode. So we see that the people that they do kind of get a bit difficult to motivate to. Find interesting things just because they feel that everything's everything's repeating. You begin to understand when you work with rare disorders like that. How memory system is constantly active like you are constantly looking at everything in your environment to see whether it's familiar or not whether it's something you already encountered on and thankfully all goes on automatically without you ever really about it until you have something like a deja Vu. But. The deja-vu there shows you just how that automatic processes always going on. Sierra, memories, constantly accumulating all your experiences trying to see what has helpful Info for the future. And this process just keeps on going keeps aren't going behind your nose that brain area that Chris Martin showed me. And you know it's a good thing. 'cause if everything was super familiar all the time it'd be really sad 'cause you know movies would just sock nothing would be new and exciting. It'd be really sad and the opposite would be Kinda, bad to like if nothing was familiar, I wouldn't remember my route to school how to tie my shoes. I wouldn't remember the answers tests I was studying for. So I'm glad I got this weird deja-vu glitch checking in on me 'cause it helps me make sure the world is jest the right amount of familiar. MOM and it turns out there's other helpful glitches we get to. I mean have you had this sensation way? You look a word for long long time and it starts to look strange like it might be spelt wrong or did you like sometimes go to write a word and think hang on a minute? Is it spotlight not night Alex completely weird to have that yes. So that that is related to deja-vu and that's that's you can think of that as the opposite deja Vu does could geometry. In French of course, my Papa who's great. It tells me Jamie means. Never seen. So it's like the opposite of Deja already seen as just never seen. Mulhall said. We Messy Papa. And again, we can think of it as the same kind of a control mechanism but work in the other sense. So that, you don't want things to get so familiar like imagine if you if you like just kept repeating stuff from repeating stuff and you never had any check on whether it was right or not. Yeah I play piano. So like every time you're doing a song and it's like three or more pages every once in a while it'll just be muscle memory and then when you actually think about it you just. Stumble over your hands and then your hands just like your like what because the more you think about how you play you just like completely fall apart. Yeah exactly. I I had a once when I was driving. Then all of sudden I was like. This those pedals for. Which is which yeah, that is that's that's bad. Okay. So then what is deja-vu? Tell us about memory itself you know because it's like it's a little unnerving that our brain does have these glitches. Yeah I mean I think you're right. It makes me sometimes question. How would I ever know if something I'm remembering is real memory or not. Then in fact, there's plenty of evidence not just with Asia view to make you think that hang on memory isn't that reliable it has biases and we tend to confused very, very similar events and similar people and similar. Objects. So one of the things that deja-vu really rams home is that kind of idea. The memory is kind of constructive and you make up a memory but not only that the thing that Deja tells you that the what makes memory is that it feels like a memory and sometimes you can have that feeling even when it's false. So if you didn't have Deja view and if you didn't have this fact checking mechanism. then. You'd be in real trouble because you'd never know whether what you were remembering was a real memory enough. That was just my mind exploiting. That was really awesome. must say Yo, pretty awesome too. So I see what Chris is getting up, memories are just assumptions you assume that this happened and this happened at this time, and if my memory's these assumptions are subjective. then. There's no real objective perception like. My Life it's all based on these assumptions of what are my memories they'll just things. I JUST Thought was right but there is a real world there. Maybe that's why we get. DEJA. In new places because the mind is kind of has to nausea. This is the big wide world it's either I've been there or Heaven, and you know whether or not it's happened before is deja-vu double checking these assumptions. I wonder what my friends at think of all my new deja-vu win sites. So, how'd you guys take to the idea that Deja who might just be your brain double checking your memories if you're like I've been here before day your brains just helping you snap out of it and realizing you're not yeah, that's that's interesting but it also makes a lot of sense I kinda imagined a brain as a computer wires can cross and it's not predictable. Brains are weird. Wow..

"I think the Deja Vu is a memory problem. This is Chris Mullin. He's a neuropsychologist at the University Grenoble Alps in France and he's an expert on memory deja. Oh. So Chris. What exactly is deja-vu. DEJA VU is caused by like a little glitch in memory system where you have to feelings at the same time, you have the feeling that you find something familiar. And at the same time is that you also know that that familiarity is false. In fact, it couldn't possibly be true. For some reason, you get expensive remembering it while it's being stored in memory for the first time to get a feeling like like I've been here before if you're like on the moon. Yeah. Exactly. So You would have like the feeling that you're you're having a memory but without actually having the memory and the example appeared on the moon is a great example because we know that deja-vu in fact happens more likely in. Novel environments. So if you go to a place where first time is, then you're likely to get deja-vu. So I, went to New York for the first time in my life and it was really big deal. When I was there I turned a corner and I had a massive sense of deja Vu. had. This big feeling of familiarity but I knew it was the first time I'd been in New York's wasn't possible I've been there before. So it wasn't possible that it was memory. It was very strange experience. 'cause you're like cold on like I swear I saw before but. Like I guess didn't. Is it still, Deja Vu if you like if you feel the sense of familiarity but you're not sure that you've been there before you're like, Oh, hold on I've been to New York before does that still deja-vu? That is such an excellent question. So one of the conundrums engage every research why old people get less Vu and I? Think just like you've kind of suggested they get less deja-vu because they say, well, they've just done so much that it is is quite possible that confused because they already do something very very similar and I ninety nine is deja-vu. deja Vu is only that time when you you really certain it hasn't happened before and there's not that sort of confusion. That does make sense. So according to Chris Deja. Vu starts around the time your Tan and it just dies out after your thirty. So. I'm in the height of my years to get out there and take advantage of this sweet spot before the world gets too familiar. And you know what? America go in. New York with my family for the first time next week. Who knows maybe I'll get it deja-vu. Okay. So I'm here New York? Manhattan specifically mad displaces massive. Really. Big. The buildings and the skylight I really like hearts. So organized everything's just so big. But unfortunately, I'm not getting any deja Vu yet you know everything's completely no. TURNS OUT REALLY FORCE MYSELF TO GET DEJA Vu. When it happens, it's really fleeting. It's hard to put your finger on. It's almost over before you even recognize that it's even happened. Also, hard to predict when it will happen. So it makes it really challenging to study in the laboratory. Also Chris Chris. Martin Moon. He's a post doctorate fellow working at the Psychology Department at the University of Toronto and just like other Chris he spent a lot of time studying deja wounded you. And explains that even though it's really hard to know what's going to happen. There are actually ways that we can study it. What we can do is look at populations that have it in the context of temporal lobe epilepsy, which is a particular type of epilepsy a little more than half of those patients experienced Asia with their seizures. So Chris explained that the way they figure this stuff out that when people are having seizures, whatever they experienced helps give us clues about where in the brain the seizures are. So. If you're searching, we're dots and colors and shapes when you have a seizure, then they're able to figure out that it's probably happening around the part of your brain that deals with fishing. And when people have Deja over with their seizures, it's probably because it's happening in the part of the brain that deals with memory. But. It's the deja Vu that they get their seizures the same as deja Vu that I get. Radically different than what you are I would describe might last longer. So sometimes, they last up to a full minute versus what we might experience being two three, four, five seconds of It's a nifty feeling but I guess if it happens for longer periods of time, it could be like really scary like what's going on everything is top ND before. And actually. So one knee anecdote I can share with you is. This patient thinking particular said you know I'm looking around to find something that isn't familiar, but everything seems to be familiar even though I know it shouldn't be. To, learn more about what's happening in the brain when these deja Vu doing. Chris Martin brings epileptic patients to his lab to check out their brain activity. So I got him to take me to his lab to check out what Deja Vu looks again the Bray We are in Sydney. Smith. Hall. At University of Toronto. the psychology department and most of our labs are downstairs, which is where at that I work in is heading down there. So this is where he takes patients that are part of their experiments. It's really cool. How are you able to understand what goes on with deja-vu? How are you able to capture what's going on in the brain? So one way to do this is implant electrodes that would go deep into the brain and have multiple recording sites on those electrode. So they can really localize it a high degree of precision where in the brain seizures are starting. And what's really interesting about these depth electrodes is that you can also use them to stimulate the brain. Well let's GNARLY. So Chris can apply these electrical impulses to the brain through these sites and see what sort of experience the patient has and what they've seen is that the seizures are starting in these specific parts of the brain called the pair were Ryan and enter Ronald Cortex Rhino means nose. So parrado means the near your nose and and Toronto means in your nose. So you can try to picture this weird Deja Vu area inside your head where your nose ends and your brain begins. And what's most compelling is if you stimulate those regions, the participants have these sort of fleeting experiences of familiarity. They wouldn't know that you've just stimulated spontaneously say experiencing deja Vu. Arena. On so you guys do have ways to. Induce. DEJA. Vu. There are ways in clinical settings to induced. You can connect the dots and say we stimulate here. We see Dejavu wasting like elsewhere we don't see that response..

You feel like you've been in the situation for. You feel like that's even more thing but you haven't because it's happening right now. If. You guys like it. That's great. But I think it's like a really weird sensation. deja-vu. Next this is really weird. Well, sometimes I just this weird feeling this started nothing else like it like it happened to me this morning actually, but sometimes it stronger than other times. But why my friend had some theories navy just dreamed about it I don't know I have that feeling sometimes but people think that has something to do with like a parallel universe. Where pretty much you have memories from like another parallel universe where like you've already experienced that before or you're experiencing it simultaneous lease, you feel like you've already experienced it sometimes I feel like Deja Vu it's like, oh, well, then this is actually meant to happen or something like that. Maybe, it's because your brain. Is. Really good at figuring out patterns if you noticed something is. Really similar. May Your brain saying wait a second.

Control of the body with the mind
"Today? We take on a luck at the medicine mystery of mind over matter, a mind over matter can be the control of the body with the mind. This might include controlling blood pressure or the rate of a heartbeat. Some monks are able to dry out wet towels by controlling their body heat. That is what usually is described as a placebo effect believing that they can do it so strongly that they can try out those wet towels. Placebo is an inert substance or belief which produces real biological effects in humans. It's so widely accepted as fact. A placebo variable included most medical tests as way of proving if say. Say A. Drug works on its own merits, or because people think it works. There are tons of experiments showing the proof of the Placebo, one of the most amusing to watch the test done by a group of Princeton students who decided to throw a Non Alcoholic Keg party for their unsuspecting classmates. The experiment who secretly filled a keg with Oh duels contained, which contains about point, four alcohol while regular beer has five percent alcohol, and then watched as their peers acted silly slur words slept on the ground, generally acted drunk, although it stereo impossible to get in toxic donald tools. These college students had such a strong belief. They were drinking standard beer that it affected their behavior. Then, there is a level of creative mental imagery that affects the physical body for an example. We look at a prisoner of war during the Vietnam Conflict Air. Force general colonel. Hall was locked a dark North Vietnamese prison for seven years most would have lost their mind. In such circumstances hall went into his happy place by mentally playing golf. Every day of his imprisonment is visualizations were extremely in-depth, included everything from hitting the ball off the tee, raking the sand traps, feeling the wind, and of course tapping the ball into the hole. Regardless of being weak and hundred pounds lighter than before his capture, one of the first things hall wanted to do after his release was play a legitimate round of golf, he was invited to the greater. New Orleans open for he astoundingly shot a seventy six, so despite his physical deterioration, not stepping on coercion over seven years his body had developed muscle memory day. Day simply on his imaginings mind over matter it's usually dismissed like deja Vu and the paranormal, but many years ago, I witnessed a lesser known form of mind over matter. I've been involved in the martial arts for over fifty years. One point in my training schools, black belts were invited to witness an example of Chee Courses Costas about eighty dollars each there were. Were about twelve of us, essentially, Chee is a life force. It exists in the human body in the martial arts. There are many stories of men who could control their cheat to the extent that they could ward off strikes or even extend she to knock over an opponent. Needless to say I was very skeptical. I was in my mid twenties at the time. Time, we were gathered in the schools large back room and told a former circle. I watched as an Asian man who looked to be in his fifties. Walk into the room. He was smoking drinking coffee from a Styrofoam Cup, he dumped coffee into a corner planter. He also ground out his cigarette. He walked to the centre of the circle placed his cup on. On, the floor upside down through our instructor, he expressed that he wanted one of the students to pick up the cup. A young black bolt directly across from me, was chosen and step forward data over and over the cup, but total a Mason said he couldn't pick up the cup all the while watching I determined that. If I was chosen, I'd fall on. On the Cup indeed was picked I stepped to the center of the circle, and at a signal from sense I extended by hand, proceeded to fall, figuring to catch myself and even push up position. The end result was that I. could not touch the cup. Indeed, our guests could not only control his chee. He was a master of mind over matter referring of. Of course to his ability to control bodily function
Can we survive Number 6
"Welcome to kiss myths and mystery sign your host Kit crumb back from vacation back from Cornucopia. The upper northern corner of the state fantastic area this podcast usually addresses an outstanding myth, sometimes some history, often the common thread connecting myths to mystery, is that both have been around a long time both existed across continental around the world as often as not fact, surrounding these myths and mysteries are difficult to locate or have been lost in the mist of Time Ninety Miss, slip into the category of. Or they rejected out of hand by science yet just because science rejects a meth does not mean that they can prove it does not exist. Recently Dis- podcast covered deja-vu and included four scientific theories on what Deja Vu really was. However, these were just theories, and could no more disprove deja-vu than paranormal explanation could prove Dacia as I present data, surrounding extinction and the current whole scene or six extinction. I've attempted to US faxed are agreed on by experts in the field from around the world. The debate or controversy on the subject is the how come or why now. Now question, the earliest extinction came about when an asteroid somewhere between six and fifty miles long struck the Yucatan Peninsula Mexico. There's some debate about the size of the asteroid, but it's agreed on by the biggest wise on that matter, and it caused a worldwide climate disruption brought about the cretaceous extinction event, a mass extinction in which seventy five percent of Earth's plant and animal species became extinct, basically brought the existence of dinosaurs to end. Keep in mind. This conversation will not cover earliest life. The crawled out of primordial soup. Many of the species survived the worldwide climate change. By the asteroid died out during the second grid extinction, or the third or fourth or the fifth while canes around the world unleash poison gas into the atmosphere, oceans encountered. Huge algae bloom at depleted the oxygen destroying see life is believed that life today evolved from the four percent of animals, see and plantlife. That survived five huge changes in the earth's atmosphere. Here comes great controversy. A heated debate in the scientific community is whether or not earth. Earth is heading into another mass extinction. Currently, the world is a whole scene extinction era, plants animals are dying off at an abnormally fast rate and life. As we know, it is in danger this time. However, the cost is not volcanic activity, nor asteroid impacts. Human activity is triggering a change in global climate which has increased species extinction to between ten and a hundred times faster than normal. The evidence is pretty clear. We are headed toward. Toward the sixth mass extinction, if we are not already in it, all this leads to a very big question, will we humans be part of the sixth extinction? Just because we've survived the loss of x number species, can we keep going down the same trajectory or do we eventually am barrel the systems that keep people alive, and if we could survive, would we really want to live in an environment devoid of diversity of species unlike Vu mentioned. Mentioned earlier in this podcast, it may someday be explained by science, and that today we can say time will tell paranormal neurological.

A little extra Time
"Welcome to catch myths and mysteries. Shyam your host kid chrome with everybody shelter in place. I thought it might be interesting to talk about time travel and with that in. Mind the paradox of time on time. Paradoxes any logical contradiction that has to do with time travel. The Classic Paradox Time Falls into the classic grandfather paradox. The grandfather paradox who's usually the screenplay turn novel then movie where the U. S. Nimitz is caught in a storm of thrush and back in time to December sixth nineteen forty one. The dilemma is what the crew knows. What's going to happen? But the grandfather paradox of time gets in the way when the past is changed. It creates a contradiction. The time traveller could do anything that did happen but can't do anything that didn't well an aircraft carrier the size of the Nimitz didn't exist back in nineteen forty one so anything they could have done would have altered the future in a big way. Fortunately the storm that sent them back in time reappeared and brought them back to their time before they could decide what to do for a little more detail watch the movie. The final countdown. I think it came out in the nineteen eighties. Should you can listen to Martin. Sheen explained the grandfather paradox. To Kirk Douglas. The topic of time travel bags of big question. How would travelers go forward or back in time? H She wells painted a picture of a time machine with his book. The time machine. It was simply a vehicle for going forward or back with little regard to the visitors passed or impact on the future or past for the past for that matter that then we have screenwriter Richard. Matheson who wrote somewhere in time and takes the issue of time travel to a new level in the movie. Christopher Reeves is a young theater students celebrating the success of his latest production when the party is interrupted by an elderly woman who break Suda crowd of well-wishers Impresa lock into his hand Luxembourg. The says come back to me long story short. He traces Salak at back. To a stage. Actress of Nineteen twelve and her summer retreat that has been restored to pristine nineteen twelve decor. He buys clothes from the era right down to the socks. He wears a pocket wash from that era than rents a room and focuses on all things nineteen twelve and remember. He's surrounded in a room and a facility that is all nineteen twelve and ZAP when he ventures back out into the hall so hours later it is indeed nine thousand nine hundred twelve and elderly woman is there and a romance began one day. It is raining so they decided to have a picnic and Gorse at some point. She asked the time when he pulls out the pocket. Watch a penny from nineteen. Eighty comes out with it and the spell is broken. Well all this talk of time. Travel's seems a stuff of fiction. The what about Deja Vu? The feeling that you've been there before or met that person before done that thing before could it be that you've visited another time and have a flash memory of the person you met. L. Let's bring it home. The was the last time that a day week or month just seemed to Fi- yet your routine hadn't changed. I can remember going to the gym a specific time day or I would meet a friend. We always did the same routine but after a year or so. We noticed that we were finished sooner than before our next meeting. We TIMED ISH. Exercise routine and the gaps between each workout. The Times were always the same yet. We would finish at different times out of that work at one meeting. We had to stop and re park our cars yet. We completed our usual routine at the same time we had established and still finished early. Not Time travel but perhaps time slip. The Earth spins at Specific Rate. Plants grow in predictable period of time. Are we humans of variable our perception of time altered for seemingly? No reason when I was in grammar school failed to complete my homework. I could still hear my teacher telling me that we all had the same twenty four hours in the day but do we. The world's most accurate clock has neatly shown how right Albert Einstein was a hundred years ago when he proposed that time is a relative concept and the higher you live above sea level. The faster you should age. Einstein's theory of relativity states at time and space are not as constant as everyday life would
Wisconsin governor suspends in-person voting for primary
"Brand well because of current virus Wisconsin governor Tony Evers has suspended in person voting in tomorrow's presidential primary he's a Democrat and his order comes after nearly a week of back and forth with Republicans in the state legislature there they rejected a request from the governor to postpone the primary like other states have meanwhile the Supreme Court is weighing a lower court judge's order to extend Wisconsin's deadline to submit absentee ballots Jessica Levinson is here to talk about all this with us she's a law professor at Loyola law school in a regular legal legal hello hello well let's begin with even order it postpones in person voting and he did that unilaterally does he have the authority to do that I'm gonna give you everybody's least favorite law professor answer we're not sure and I actually think we're gonna be saying that a lot over the next few months I mean there's going to be a big issue of trying to secure elections and protect elections in the time of a global pandemic and so does the governor have the power to unilaterally change the election date spent a lot of I've been back in Wisconsin about that I hate to say it but we'll know when a judge rules on whether or not that's permissible right and Republicans have resisted that why have they resisted postponing in person voting right so there's no question that legally speaking if the Republican controlled legislature had decided that yes we will postpone the date of the election that that would have been permissible that they as a state as the representatives of the state could have done that what they've said is that we can't postpone for a couple reasons one they said it's not just the presidential primary that's on the ballot it's also a lot of state and local races and we don't want those to stand vacant now Inc in the governor's executive order he said they don't have to stand vacant I'm just going to extend the terms of the state and local officials what the Republicans have also said is that they don't want this huge change an influx of vote by mail because they're worried about issues of fraud and essentially that the election would lack integrity I think all of us frankly the studies on that indicate that those aren't real fears that we don't have to worry about voter fraud date what's much a much bigger worry is making sure that everybody who wants to vote actually camp out right and so along those lines there's also this dispute over absentee ballots a federal judge extended the deadline in Wisconsin and that was upheld by the federal by a federal appeals court but now the Republicans have appealed to the US Supreme Court what's going on there with the absentee ballot dispute yeah what's going on there is there's two parallel tracks one there's a legal track that we were just talking about which is this argument by Republican lawmakers that it really infringes on the integrity of the election to do things like increase vote by mail or route increase the amount of time that you would have to return your ballot and that's kind of the legal argument that's going up and back the second track is really a political one where for Democrats it's better if there's more time if more people show up for Republicans it's really a big game if we don't count those vote by mail if we don't extend the time there's a really big judicial action in the Wisconsin Supreme Court Republicans have I believe the reporting is openly said you know it might have been actually better to have the selection when it's a lower turnout so we're sure we can keep that particular seat this is really a preview of I think a lot of what we might see in the fall these parallel tract arguments on the one hand legal on the other hand political okay let's turn to another story in the news right now in the midst of this huge pandemic at least six conservative states of trying to restrict access to abortion a federal District Court judges blocks nearly all of those orders but not in Texas the fifth circuit court of appeals left aligned Texas go into a fact on a temporary basis so I know a lot of states are saying no to elective medical procedures right now but there seems to be at a time difference here rate when it comes to having an abortion is not considered an elective procedure but not by the American college of obstetricians and gynecologists in so it's gonna feel like deja vu all over again from about forty five seconds ago but what we're seeing in this case is also two different arguments one is the legal argument of whether or not you can basically prohibit and or postpone these abortions the other is really the political argument a lot of Republican controlled states trying to restrict access to an abortion so you know to your question is this really an elective procedure no it really my understanding is medically is not considered an elective procedure and of course there is a much different timeline when it comes to an abortion at a certain point out you've waited so long that it might be for instance illegal under the state's loss to happen abortion in so this brings up again this kind of Wu Ming fight at the Supreme Court at some point we'll have to take up about the contours of abortion rights what grounds on what grounds did the court of appeals let the Texas law go into effect yes so what the Texas court said and as you said this was really an out liar decision every other federal court that's taken the sap has said no you can't implement these types of prohibitions or restrictions Texas court said as the state has the power to do that looking at the states broad police powers to do things like limit the number of elective procedures you have to do other things like we talk about all the time like closing restaurants cook closing schools that it would fall within that power so I think the conservative fifth circuit really kind of went out on a limb and frankly I don't think the ruling is consistent with the current standard they Casey versus Planned Parenthood distinct standard so do you think the Supreme Court will take this one up when it convenes at when and if it reconvenes physically and or virtually it you know it depends on how long this particular prohibition is in place but I think it's gonna be really hard for the court to avoid this they may try and issue some very short opinion which basically says this isn't consistent with our current standard and then wait for a bigger case to come before them to really make the decision about whether or not states can essentially say there's an emergency exception to the current standard that there's an emergency
The Great Toilet Paper Shortage
"The great toilet paper shortage. No I'm not talking about a toilet. Paper shortage caused by the corona virus. Won't get to that in a minute. I'm talking about the shortage of Nineteen seventy-three. This was a time of shortages. Many areas oil scares great economic. Stressors kept Americans on edge so when herald the FROLIC a Republican congressman at the time? Put out a press release warning the public about a possible and in no way imminent toilet paper shortage and night time comedian. Johnny Carson echoed the press release. Well put people on edge and I've got digs out quote from Johnny Carson. He's doing his stand up monologue. You know we've got all sorts of shortages these days but have you heard the latest. I'm not kidding I saw the papers. There's an acute shortage of of toilet paper and now that's an exact quote from Johnny Carson. At the time he had twenty million viewers the ground had already been laid for troop Hanoch amongst consumers carson simply ignited the spark for full blown madness. Millions of Americans across the country flooded local grocery and convenience stores. Totally wiping them clean of all toilet paper. One consumer told New York Times that after hearing it on the News Day. Bought an extra fifteen roles. Another woman asked her party guests to arrive with the roll of toilet paper and again I remind you this was all taking place in Nineteen. Seventy three for a few must toilet. Paper continued to be a rare find. Until like most short-lived trends the fizzled out in the aftermath. Carson was hotseat receiving a large portion of the blame for fueling the shortage. Myth Carson issued a sincere apology to viewers and again this is a quote from Johnny Carson. I don't want to be remembered as the man who created a false toilet paper scare. I just picked up the item from the paper and enlarge it somewhat. There is no shortage. That's a direct quote from Johnny Carson Nighttime Comedian back in one thousand. Nine hundred seventy three. At this point in time the damage has been done and Americans were passed all the potty drama most people would place the blame on Johnny Carson for causing the T. P. Panic but is he solely accountable even before Carson's joke on the Air Americans themselves are partially to blame for the self-induced toilet paper trauma. Can you blame them? These people were used to shortages of everything from oil to that true panic stem from a blatant rumor. Could it be a deja Vu today? The Washington Post reports a run on roles with both Costco. Another supermarket. Chain stripped all but clean even Amazon's physical stores appeared to be down to single rolls of Toilet Paper The New York Times similarly reported from a whole foods supermarket in Somerville Massachusetts where shoppers had to be limited to two packages of toilet paper. Each lease they strip the store bear. There was no shortage of toilet paper. Nineteen seventy three or today. Nearly fifty years later no shortage. There is a quote that applies to the story that you might be familiar with. Those who do not learn from history are doomed to repeat it. The quotas most likely due to writer and philosopher. George Santayana it expresses the sentiment. Ably that history repeats itself it that is true then. We simply need to pay attention. Still we all eat sleep and poop and are driven to take care of those basic
How AI Predicted the Coronavirus Outbreak with Kamran Khan
"Welcome to the trauma podcast. Thanks for having these great to be here is really really exciting to chat with you so you originally came on our radar as a result of a wired article that came out not too long ago. About how your company Blue Dot used a I to be among the first to warn about the corona virus. I you probably have much more precise words around exactly what you the role that your company's playing in that but let's start out by having you share a little bit about your background and you know what brought you to apply machine learning and artificial intelligence to this problem of early identification warning of diseases. Yeah for sure. So maybe I'll start out by providing a little bit of background about myself and ultimately. What was the motivation for this work? So you know I'm a practicing infectious disease physician. I still just paste seeing a bunch of patients this morning with the Burki listened and managing that and and I'm originally from Toronto I did my my medical school training here But I specialize in infectious diseases in public health. And I was down in New York finishing up my training In two thousand and two and then moved back to Toronto just before. The SARS outbreak happened so Toronto has mentioned is is where I grew up in an home When I got here Shortly after arriving we have this outbreak of the SARS krona virus. Seventeen years ago in and it was something that we didn't really even know what it was until it showed up in our hospitals in our city and as a physician specializing in infectious diseases and in public health You know I didn't know what this was. I don't know how anyone else would know what it was. And so it really became apparent. We need better systems to be able to detect anticipate how infectious diseases might emerge and spread. And we know that they do that really quickly. The the reason why this was such a profound event for me personally was You know I got to see the impact of SARS on our city Really in a up close and Personal. Way one of my colleagues got infected with SARS and And we had other healthcare workers who got SARS and who actually died with forty four deaths. We had an outbreak involving over two hundred and fifty people that went on for four very long months You can just imagine the amount of mental and emotional fatigue that sets into your healthcare workforce when day in and day out. You're trying to confront this thing. There's a lot of personal protective equipment and gear that you gotta be working wearing in your environment And you know there's always the concern that you know. Would you potentially get this next? And Are you gonNA take it back home to your family So there was certainly an enormous amount of concern there. We saw our hospitals completely overwhelmed. They went into lockdown. All ELECTIVE PROCEDURES WERE CANCELLED. Our public health system was overwhelmed and even the city took on a different feel. It was one where people stop traveling to Toronto We didn't have the same kinds of people gathering. There were billions in financial losses to the city. This was a really profound event. And if we take a look at the big picture. Toronto was just one of dozens of cities around the world. That we're going through This outbreak Singapore and Hong Kong and Taipei and others. In fact these are some of the city's right now that are experiencing Outbreaks of this new corona virus. So for me I think one of the key things really at that point was we need a better system. We need a better system to be able to detect outbreaks. More quickly We need a better system to be able anticipate how they would spread and we need a mechanism to be able to rapidly communicate. That information was Toronto. Unique among North American cities in the impact of the SARS virus. I remember obviously hearing about it at the time but it didn't feel nearly as personal. I'm based in Saint Louis but travel extensively to New York and San Francisco and other cities in the US so there were actually dozens of imported cases of SARS into North America. Nah It just so happened and this is a point that maybe I'll come back to later on that. In Toronto one of the cases lead to a whole bunch of other cases and triggered an outbreak in many of the other cities the cases were identified quickly isolated and there wasn't secondary transmission that went on to lead to a broader outbreak so Vancouver had cases in Canada and they're bunch of US cities that had travelers who were infected with SARS but it did not trigger an ongoing outbreak. So Toronto was one of those places where we had an outbreak that everyone heard about simply because it just we had case after case going on over a four-month period and you refer to it as the SARS corona virus What's the relationship between SARS and Crime Bias? Or maybe you know. Just define corona viruses category of viruses so corona virus is there are two groups first of all the corona part of. Krona virus is largely because of the way the virus looks it. Has these almost looks a bit like You know a child drawing picture of the Sun With these kind of surface proteins that go out and there are two broad categories corona viruses can just caused the common cold. So that's these are not that unusual but there are novel Corona Viruses New Corona viruses. That may have made the leap from animals into humans and there are two other ones prior to this SARS back in two thousand and three which we think probably came from civic cats maybe originally from bats to an intermediate animal and then over to humans and then murders which is the Middle East Respiratory Syndrome. That really came on the scene in two thousand twelve is mostly been in the A Middle East around centered mostly around Saudi Arabia. And that's another cronin virus stocked actually originate from camels and then has spread to humans and causes severe respiratory illnesses as well the Animal. That is the The source of this new corona virus is still being evaluated the Pangolin is. One of the candidates in animals is being discussed but genetically this. Is You know almost eighty percent similar to the SARS coronavirus so they sort of fall into the same family. It almost think of him a bit like being cousins if you will Related in in many ways genetically and so the virus came about via mutation I would imagine as at the right term. Is that how these viruses get started not not necessarily a mutation per se but what happens is they have a will call it? Zona spillover and what I mean by that is. This virus is found in an animal a human incomes in contact with the virus and it just so happens that the virus is sufficiently adapted to be able to replicate in human cells and then ultimately become a human pathogen or a human disease So that is you know this is similar to what we saw during the SARS coronavirus. In fact that there's a Deja Vu with the story here which is if we look back to two thousand and three. This was pneumonia that developed in association with a presumably exposure to a live animal market that then triggered that outbreak. And here we are again seventeen years later with a coronavirus associated with a live animal market. That has now created the next Outbreak and this one has some similarities and some differences from SARS But certainly is a much larger outbreak. It is now surpassed SARS You know in many fold in terms of number of cases and even now the total number of deaths surpassed. I what we saw in two thousand three with the SARS outbreak. Talk a little bit about the role of early warning. The importance of the motivation for what you're doing at blue dot let me just tell you a little bit about the the kind of evolution so first of all as I mentioned I'm a practicing physician. An epidemiologist by training so after the SARS outbreak ended You know one of the things that I came to my mind was. Let's not do this again. Let's think about another way that perhaps we had better anticipate this and I spent the next ten years as a scientist and as a professor at the University of Toronto. Studying outbreaks trying to understand. Are there ways that we could better anticipate how these diseases spread around? The now we know that ultimately these diseases that affect humans are spread by the movements of humans and the long distance movements of people This generally occurs through commercial air travel around the world and this network. Which is you know. It's it's not even one hundred years old Of Commercial Air travel has really transformed how people move around the world and ultimately how microbes move around the world. So I spent the next ten years studying that and realized from various outbreaks that you actually could start to potentially anticipate how these diseases would spread. I I started working with billions of Anonima used a passenger flight. Itinerary tickets and sales and those types of data kind of dawned on me that I could learn and understand that seat sixteen four or sixteen or something was available and sixteen was taken had to be some kind of data system that was accounting for all of these types of transactions and after studying a little bit of the information systems in the airlines Realize that There were Billions of a ticket sales data. That actually could be utilized to understand how the whole world is connected. How people are moving around the planet so after doing that for ten years and realizing that there was some rhyme and reason to all of this started thinking more and more about how do we move quickly in the academic world You know when we published in the scientific literature it's a pretty lengthy process in it often takes months or maybe even some cases evening to take years to Conduct a scientific study generate the results submitted for peer review by the scientific community. Have that reviewed if the article is rejected. Do it again. If it's accepted that goes to the editors they review it and so on and so forth and that's a fairly lengthy process But of course the diseases don't wait for the reviewers to review the science They spread in hours and days and so we needed a better system one. That was more agile to be able to respond to this. And that was for me. The motivation for founding blue dot creating this as a digital health company I will clearly say. I am not a serial entrepreneur. Who's done this twenty times? I had never even imagined creating a company if someone had said that to me when I was going through medical school I would've thought I was some kind of joke but ultimately really what I was trying to do was to solve a problem and in a we have a number of organizations here in Toronto may be similar in in in Saint Louis or other parts of the United States that are really here to start supporting an entrepreneurial spirit amongst those in the university system to say well maybe you can take a leap of faith. Maybe you can accelerate that discovery in scale the implementation of discovery using business as a vehicle to do that. So so that was the motivation behind launching blue dot. And what I will say is that we have been for the last six and a half years building What we call a global early warning system for infectious diseases. And I'll be happy to you. Know To Kinda of describe what that is and how we use. Data and things like machine learning and other types of Analytical approaches and pieces of technology to build a system that can detect outbreaks faster than we have in the past assess how they might spread around the world and what the consequences might be. And then actually generate information to disseminate its. We're literally spreading insights and knowledge about the disease faster than the disease spreading itself. So that's really been our overarching approach. in in terms of how we have been thinking about infectious diseases. Not just big outbreaks like the current corona virus. But you know. We're dealing with the resurgence of measles we're dealing with. You know lime disease expanding we are. We're dealing with a unfortunately a world of infectious diseases where outbreaks in these threats are becoming more. Frequent outbreaks are becoming larger. And they're having larger and larger and more disruptive
"deja vu" Discussed on True Mysteries of the Pacific Northwest
"Welcome to kiss myths and mysteries siamese host kit crumb. I've got to mention that if you're hearing a little background noise there's nothing wrong with your computer device or however. You're listening to this. Podcast is my neighbor who dominate away. Who's drilling well while that said today's. This topic is a deja vu when you go to a new place me someone that you've never met before and had the feeling that you knew that person or to that a place well. You're not alone but i deviate a little bit. When i was researching this story a french carver not a real name said said she grew up in las vegas but eventually moved to shasta city california. She told me it wasn't uncommon for her to have the name of a friend that she grew up with pop op into her head and within minutes would run into that person at shasta. Although janice experiences nada deja vu i felt it was in the same league league and i just couldn't help explain it to my listeners. Okay onward we go wikipedia says deja vu feeling that one has lived through the presence situation before the phrase translates literally as already seen although some interpret deja vu in a paranormal context mainstream extreme science approaches reject explanation of dacia who is pre cognition or prophecy so how does science explain deja vu they the world of science ryan has four possible causes of what is referred to as deja vu first attention explanations of deja vu involve an initial perception that is made under degraded attention which is then followed by a second take under full attention for example if you're about to unlock unlocked the front door of your house and you momentarily are distracted by a noise in the distance when you return to the task locking the door the first perception may seem further further off in the past the distraction that separates these two perceptions could be est fleeting. I said i blink their second. Explanation is memory explanations. They make the assumption that some detail of the new experiences familiar but the source of this familiarity has been forgotten the premise addison this explanation is that people encounter countless things during the course of the day but don't pay attention to all of the information later processing of the information may occasionally induce the million era at deja vu then there is the next explanation dual processing explanation so deja vu suggested to usually synchronous cognitive processes become momentarily as synchronous for example familiarity and retrieval could become out of sync alternate league perception and memory could become a synchronous and and finally neurological explanations for deja vu attribute the phenomenon to either a small temporal lobe seizure in a person without epilepsy or to a delay in neural transmission between the eyes ears or other perceptual organs in higher order processing centers in the brain. Wow oh wow do processing explanations have received a lot of attention. They are much more philosophical and theoretical and less mechanistic but the dual processing explanations can be tested in the lab. Similarly neurological explanations are appealing in their neurological basis and seem logical oh but again we lacked the advanced technology to test them. Thus dual processing neurological explanations are less germane to researchers strips. Instead attentional and memory explanations are best supported by what we know about cognition and could be tested empirically well well. It sounds to me like the scientific explanations can't be tested and repeated in a generally scientific method. Wow that takes out of experiencing deja vu on monday. I'll provide explanations for deja vu from a pseudoscience or paranormal point of you and we'll see what stands out deja vu was produced here. I don't sound studio. Although i think produced it before and brought to you by al creek cabinet al creek cabin dot com check it out and by the rogue valley metaphysical library. I'm sure i've been there before. I'm kid chrome. Thanks for listening.
"deja vu" Discussed on Tai Asks Why
"Hi there. memory for the first time to get a feeling like like i've been here before if you're like on the moon mm-hmm yeah exactly so you would have liked the feeling that your your having a memory but without actually having the memory and the the example of being on the moon is a great example because we know that deja-vu in fact happens more likely in novel environments so if you go to a place for first first time is then you're likely to get deja-vu so i went to new york for the first time in my life and it was really big deal when i was there. I turned the corner. Anna and i had a massive sense of deja vu. I had this big feeling of familiarity but i knew it was. The first time i've been in new. York's wasn't possible. I've before so it wasn't possible that it was a memory is very strange experience cold on like i swear i sought right before but like i guess i didn't is it still deja vu. If if you like if you feel the sense of familiarity but you're not sure that you've been there before you're like oh wait hold on. I've been to new york before. Is that still deja-vu. Well that is such an excellent question so one of the conundrums engage every research y old people get less deja-vu and i think just like you've kind of suggested they they get less deja-vu because they say well. They've just done so much that it is is quite possible that confused because they did already do something very very similar and i signing now is deja-vu because i think deja. Vu is only that time when you you really certain it hasn't happened before and there's not that sort of confusion yeah that that does make sense. According to chris deja-vu starts around the time you're ten and it just dies out after your thirties so i'm i'm in the height of my years. Got get out there and take advantage of this so wheat spot before the world gets too familiar and you know what i'm actually she going to new york with my family for the first time next week. Who knows maybe i'll get a deja vu okay so i'm here new york manhattan soclean man. This place has massive really big the buildings the skylight. I really like hard so organized. Everything's just so big but unfortunately i'm not getting any deja blue yet. You know everything's completely no turns out. I can't really force myself to get deja vu when when it happens it's really fleeting. It's hard to put your finger on. It's almost over before you even recognize that. It's even happened. It's also hard to predict when it will happen so it makes it really challenging to study in the laboratory. This is also chris chris martin. He's a post doctorate. Fellow working at the psychology department at the university receive toronto and just like other chris. He spent a lot of time studying deja vu you and you explains that even though it's really hard hard to know when it's gonna happen. There are actually ways that we can study it. What we can do is look at populations that have it in the context of temporal lobe epilepsy which is a particular type of epilepsy a little more than half of those patients experienced asia with their seizures so chris explained that the way they figure this stuff out that when people are having seizures whatever they experience helps give us clues about where in the brain the seizures are so if you're searching we're dots and colors shapes when you have a seizure then they're able to figure out that it's probably happening around the party brand that deals with fishing and when people have deja over with their seizures it's probably because it's happening in the part of the brain that deals with memory but it's the deja vu that they get with their seizures the same as deja vu do that i get. They're not radically different than what you are. I would describe it might last longer so sometimes they can last up to a full minute versus what we might experience experienced being two three four five seconds something like that. It's a nifty feeling but i guess if it happens for longer periods of time. It could be like really scary. It's like what's going on. Everything is top end before and actually so one knee anecdote. I can share with you. Is this <hes> patient. Thinking particular said. I'm looking around to find something that isn't familiar but everything seems to be familiar. Even though i know it shouldn't be okay think deja-vu necessarily bad in fact. I think it's evidence of a healthy working good working memory system because it's an indication that everything's going right now. You can detect that conflict. I asked chris about this to remember him from earlier. I think deja view is caused by like a little glitch absolutely in the memory system to chris's. It's kind of like deja vu right. You're anyway. Chris mulan agrees with chris martin. The deja vu was in bad for us too chris two different last names one.

"C._b._c. podcast. You guys know that feeling when you're in the middle of your day doing whatever doing your normal thing thing or you're on normal thing doing whatever really and then just all of a sudden this weird like epiphany feeling like whoa. I've done this before and you know you haven't but you feel like you have deja-vu right which i learned from my i papa that it comes from the french and it means already seen so you feel like you've been in the situation for you. I feel like that's the thing but you haven't because it's happening right now. If you guys like it that's great but i think it's like like a really weird sensation deja-vu like i know exactly what's coming next. This is really weird. Well sometimes i the weird feeling. This started nothing else like it like it happened to me this morning actually but sometimes it stronger than other times times but why my friend had some theories. Maybe you just dreamed about it. I don't really know i have that feeling sometimes but people we'll think that it has something to do with like a parallel universe where pretty much you have memories from another parallel universe. We're like you've already experienced that before. You're experiencing it simultaneously so you feel like you've already experienced it. Sometimes i feel like deja vu. It's like oh well then this. This is actually meant to happen or something like that. Maybe it's because your brain is really good at figuring out patterns. If you you noticed something is really similar. Maybe it's your brain saying wait a second. My.

"That's collagen have coin terms for besides deja-vu, like Jabu or deja entendu or Preska vu. Yeah. While we were researching this episode, we actually found a word oath clip from some memory lifts TV game show. His most have been way before my time. Because I told you don't remember it figure it out. Get ready to make grains, feel weird. Welcome to the Delage. Let's meet the contestants return guests Jabu feels like everything even old stuff is somehow new. Oh, yes. Hello. Thank you. I know we've been here before. But it feels like my very first time on this game show. This is definitely your thirty seven time on the show. Next up deja entendu translates directly to already heard how weird I feel like I've heard you make that announcement before. And here we have Preska vu, always on the verge of the pithy. We've really know. I almost have it. It's right there. Let me think let me. Oh, and here is deja Rivi. The player has a hard time drawing lines between memory dreams and reality really feel like a game show was in my dreams last night. And last, but not least we have villa. No memory glitch, but has in its name. We'll make the humans feel weirdest state soons. I'm so sad. We don't have the rest of the show. I know it's really old. That's the only bit that survived. But maybe someone out there members. What happened, and hey, I just remembered it's time to get back to the mystery sound. Are you ready to hear it again? Yeah. Okay. I ready. All right. Let's get those years going here. It is. All right. So last time without a book or typewriter to have any new thoughts. Okay. So now that you hear I could hear kinda shuffling with the finger. Someone's thumbing the paper. Maybe it's a cloth. I think it's a cloth. So I'd say it's a sewing machine that the really good thought Kenji. What's your guess? I think it's very similar to what kisses shuffling. So I think it's a they used cards to shuffle. Like the way where they just get two pieces of one have of the deck, and then they just put a bridge and then put it together. That's that's the sound where they just put it together for shuffling playing cards. Yeah. Excellent. Gus well here is the answer for the former United States memory champion, and that was the sound of a pack of playing cards. Being shuffled Kenji. That's amazing. Excellent work. So what do you think playing cards have to do with memory? So I remember he said he was a memory champion. So I'm guessing what he had to do was memorize the whole deck. No. He shuffled the deck. Then he memorized it. So then later in the gaming show. They did keep the dick in than sif. He memorize it correctly. You're totally right yet. Josh competed in memory petitions like, you just said and the challenge there is to remember as much as you can as fast as you can sometimes they'll, you know, give him a string of random numbers or a poem or maybe pictures of strangers and their names and whoever accurately remembers the most wins, that's hard United States memory championship. One of the events. Is to memorize the order of complete shuttle back playing cards like all fifty two cards in perfect order. So when I did it I actually wasn't the time the United States record by doing it in a minute and forty seconds. Now, you might think that performing mental feats of strength like memorizing, a deck of cards in a minute and forty seconds take years of training. But not so says, Josh, no, no, no, I got into this. 'cause I'm taking my real job is on a science journalist, and I had gone to write an article that this strange contests. And when I heard the competitor's telling you that anybody could do this that they were just using these ancient tricks that people used to know about in two days. We don't really use very often. I thought that's definitely I wanna try and learn these techniques myself, and I went from being somebody with just an average memory to, you know, peeing the US memory champion. Josh says anyone can train their brain to have a better memory tricks. Basically come down. Down to figuring out how to create a wild funny..
"deja vu" Discussed on Brains On!
"So a lot of the time our memory works. Pretty well. But sometimes our brains can deceive us that brings us to this listener question brings on I'm Louise in. I lived in far on Texas. I was wondering what is deja-vu what's going on in your brain run at happens. Why does it always have the same outcome on every single person? Meaning that we feel like we have previously experienced what we are experiencing. Thank you. Have you ever had deja-vu Kenji? Yeah. Every once in a while, I play board games is my brother, and he and sometimes I just feel like I know what he's gonna say next. It feels so like powerful like superheroes them thing. That's amazing case. What about you? Have you had deja-vu? Yeah. I definitely agree with Katie. I feel like an oracle. And I remember my most vivid. Burst of deja. Abu was when I first watched Harry Padron sorceress stone, especially when Henry Potter. I learned quidditch. I felt like I knew every single bristle of the broom. So that you had never seen it before. But you the broom just look so familiar to you. Yeah. I've felt like I just knew it even though look nothing like the one we keep at her house. That is so interesting. Well, luckily, we know someone who can help explain this bizarro brain phenomenon. And clearly studies deja-vu at Colorado state university. Welcome an thank you. Hi. Hello. So what is deja-vu Dacia food is usually defined as a feeling of having been in this exact situation before while realizing at the same time that that can't be true. This is new this is the first time that you've ever been in this situation. Cool does everyone get deja-vu actually. No, not everyone does get deja-vu. So Survey Research. Suggests that roughly two-thirds of people report having experienced it at some time or other personally, I've talked to people who've told me that they've never had it. How does scientist research on deja vu phenomenon since it happened? So randomly the way that we did it previously was actually using virtual reality. We used a game. And you may have heard of this game. It's a game called the SIMS. It's kind of an older game. But it's a game that allows you to create many different scenes that we could use in virtual reality. So we could create lots of different kinds of rooms, for example, like a bathroom or living room. We could create lots of outdoor scenes like a courtyard, for example, or swimming pool area. And what we did was we had people wear virtual reality goggles and just immerse themselves in different types of scenes one right after the other and what we did was looked at. What happens when a scene has the exact same spatial layout as something that they experienced earlier. But that they forgot about. So basically when a person for God, they can't consciously remember that they were in earlier seeing that's very similar to this currency ING. Indeed, people seem to be more likely to say, yeah, I'm having deja vu right now. And we think it's because that similarity of the spatial layout is producing a feeling of familiarity. What makes deja-vu happen is deja-vu to pass memories? Or is it a creepy? Sifi thing. I love that question. Actually, those those aren't mutually exclusive. I think vu is very likely rooted in memory, but it can still make for good subject matter. For example, might be maybe you're visiting Paris for the very first time in your life and your at the museum called the loop. When suddenly you're plagued with this mysterious feeling that you've been to exact spot before. And it's puzzling. Because you know, this is your first time ever visiting the Loof what may be that buried deep in your memory somewhere is actually a relevant previous experience that you're failing to think of at the moment. And maybe although you haven't actually visited the loop before maybe you watched a movie years ago that head lots of scenes from that museum in it. And if you can't consciously recall that movie as the source of your current feeling, maybe it just feels puzzling. And mysterious you just have this feeling without an explanation. I like that exam. Apple will. Thank you so much. We really appreciate you making time for us today. You're welcome. Thank you for your time. Thank you. Thank you. Above a on. So deja-vu is sort of a brain glitch. But it turns out it's not the only one. There are other experiences..
