"We are a team. And Galen's our leader. And that's why each of us can step into the front of the platform. And lead the congregation knowing that their support behind them, that it's okay if they make a mistake. But it's not about us. It's about pointing to God and Galen says this all the time. Let's make God big, because we're not here to make us big. Let's make God big. And that's what our values are for. That's incredible. I know that when the first time that I came, it was, I think we only had two that actually were able to come when we got sick or something. So we didn't have a large team. But I remember talking to our guys when we got back home, we had our staff made and I said, you guys all got to go and experience this. This is amazing. And I remember, I don't know how many you had at the time, but it seemed like there were just everywhere I looked, there was another volunteer and they had another team, and I remember Galen, you said something to me at the end. After the night of worship, when we were talking, and he said, oh, he's got several teams like that. I said, are you kidding?.

"Current active projects or recent releases? There's so much going on. It's hard for me to I realized the other day that I've actually just completely lost track of all the things that people are working on. I mean, we are sort of in this process of continually updating landscape and then like I mentioned before the software distribution stuff is probably the most exciting thing we shipped that we worked really hard on last year. So now I can basically just send you a link within orbit and you can click that link and it will just download a piece of software for me and install it and you can run it right away. And so people have been experimenting with all kinds of stuff. There's almost every day I see something new that I hadn't seen before. And most of them are total toys, you know? It's like chess. There's a file system explorer that was actually pretty amazing the other day. Oh, someone made an actual like two FA. So like self hosted two factor auth that actually uses your camera to go and scan QR codes and generate generate two of a code, which is really cool. But these are just people moving quickly experimenting. So your urban has to run somewhere and we as telome have worked on a hosting service that we've been improving so quietly over the past year or so. There are now three or four other hosting projects. I think two of which are real actual companies that can actually host you, which is so exciting to see because that's really important to getting people on the network. There are a few bigger infrastructure projects. I think neither of them, there are two both of which I think did their entire fundraising and it brought in their initial teams over urban itself. But I don't think either one of them which I really want to talk about because I'm excited about them, but I don't think either one of them is public or wants to be publicly known yet. So I can't get into it. But I suppose that's a good teaser for some of that information is kind of kicking around the network. Those are the things that come to mind. We host a conference about a month ago in Austin, which was pretty impressive. To me, certainly. And so ever since then I've had this kind of feeling of like, I don't even know what's going on anymore. Because my feeling at the conference was that people were constantly coming up to me telling me about things that they were working on that were orbit centric, then I had never met them before or seen them before. And it felt 6, 9 months ago, like the community was something I had a good handle on. I kind of knew what was going on. But at this point, I can't really keep up with it. You'd mention the address space being roughly about the size of the total population of human beings, is that do you have a vision that essentially all people online will eventually have their own personal server is that truly the goal of the project? Yes, so the address space is about half the size of the population of the planet. It's about 4 billion and I'm pretty sure like 7 or 7 and change or so that isn't too difficult to change if we do in fact approach a world in which everybody has a personal server. Yeah, I do honestly think that's reasonably inevitable. I think it's very clear that networked computing is like an extension of the way that we think. I think that's the kind of maybe optimistic take on what is exciting about the Internet in general. Ignoring some of the pain points of centralization, it's kind of amazing that the whole world is connected as easily as it is connected, and we network computers are this sort of accelerant for how we form communities and think about both ourselves and the world around us. I don't think that it wouldn't make sense or it would be historically atypical for something that is that important for this number of people to be controlled by a very small population. Like if you look at the way that cities are built or the way that even like empires are distributed across physical territory, there's a lot of distribution of ownership, the people who live in a particular place. And I mean, historically, kind of have a very direct material relationship with the buildings around them, the people who run that city or that province or whatever. And the Internet I think are sort of like whatever the Internet becomes needs to evolve or not even needs to be like, we'll just naturally evolve in that direction. And I don't think there's any way that that's going to happen with the technology that we have. Whether or not that's urban, I'm not really sure, but certainly we build with that future in mind. Yeah, we talk about this thing as an operating system. I mean, look, it's an overlay OS, it doesn't run on metal, but the idea is that, yes, day to day people should live inside of inside of their own personal server. And be able to compute freely because I think that's what people want to do. And for developer that's thinking about starting a new project. What are the key features that are going to pull them into urban being the platform upon which they want to build? Yeah, great question. This is a question we didn't historically have a great answer to. And I think these answers will continue to get better. But they are improving. So if your developer today and you want to build an application using the legacy stack, you are in charge of basically DevOps. You have to not only make decisions about what stack are you going to use, but you have to keep that entire, I think of it. It really looks like a really, really tall tower of wooden blocks, which as I'm imagining it is just scary makes you a little uneasy to think about because if you step the wrong way in the room or whatever the whole thing can come crashing down, I think most developers are familiar with this. And obviously like the industrials or software stack has gotten better, but it tends to be that if you want to build a conventional app, you just have to compose a whole lot of software that you didn't write and you don't understand and it's generally difficult to manage. The urban alternative is saying, look, the problems of identity and authentication, data storage and networking, how your application business logic is structured and how you do updates. We solve all of that. That's just part of the stack. So we take that entire sac and we just make it into one thing. Everybody runs the same thing and you should focus on basically user experience and sort of like what actual value does your application provide to the user. So the developer experience of urban as a designer, like someone who cares about stuff, I at once I'm like, this is so immature. This could be so much better. We have so much work to do. And then on the other hand, I'm like, this is amazing. This is so much better than the alternative, because it lets people very quickly experiment with making things in a way that you just can't in legacy systems because you're sort of burdened by the tools and their overall complexity or just the fact that they're very industrial scale. So I think that the urban model of sort of like you have this very thick stack and you let a developer just focus on the sort of business logic and user experience of what they're trying to provide. And then furthermore, they never run a server..

"All of which runs in its own programming language that compiles to its own machine language or its own virtual machine language. So there's a lot of work to do across that stack. And there's also a lot of work to do within the interpreter. So this thing is run by hesitant runtime in its own little virtual machine that's written in C and we have apprenticeships, grants and often except proposals where we commit address space to people who want to help mature the system in different ways. And even potentially do research into ways to make it faster or more efficient that aren't they're totally open ended. We're exploring new things. So yeah, there's lots of different ways to get involved. And one of the fun things about landscape itself and which always find kind of validating is that a lot of the discussion around how to do all those things. Who to talk to what to work on basically all goes on within urban itself these days. So even if you're just kind of curious, you can join the network and check it out. You described that if I were an application developer, I could distribute via orbit and you'd be running my software on your node if, you know, we came up with a deal where I was giving you the software. What's the model for distributing updates to software if I've given you the source code and you're running it? Yeah, good question. So we update the entire system, including the programming language over the network. And the reason that we can do that is because the virtual machine spec, which we call nock, it basically never changes. It's like 13 op codes. It's super concise. It's basically just this little Turing complete definition of computing. So your orbit at any given point is just a sort of a pure function of its event log. So your urban receives events, keyboard messages, network messages, whatever it might be. And then on each event, it computes some new output, some new state. And so some update could be, hey, here's an update to the entire operating system, run that against your existing state. Of course, your existing state contains the current version of the OS. And then output a new state, which is your updated orbit. So one of the affordances of the file system is to be able to it's kind of like reactive git. So instead of saying, hey, clone this repository and send me all the diffs, or you pull down the difference. You can just say, hey, listen to this end point that could be somewhere out on the network and send me all the updates as they come in. So if you're a developer, you basically just have a directory where your application is that is the sort of prod version of your application and assume you have some that you develop on. You develop updates when you're ready to do it release, just move the code over into that production version, and anybody who's subscribed to that what we call a desk, which is basically a branch should just automatically get an update over the network. We regularly do this to update, yeah, like the whole system, as I was saying, which could be all the way down to the language, updating language can sometimes be tricky and has to be done carefully. So kernel updates, you have to be a little bit more careful about, although, in general, orbit is pretty robust, like the whole thing is basically a database. And also acts like a single level store. So we don't really have a distinction between writing to disk or running in memory. The whole thing runs in memory. So yeah, it's a kind of a different model. You're not like, when someone, I guess the closest thing really is like phone. These things on your phone, right? Like I download an app and I can just say, okay, automatically update it. It's probably a lot more like that. We don't have the equivalent of that when it comes to websites. I mean, even with a site, if you're a developer and you've shipped an update, you need a force everybody to refresh, if it's a single page app. So it's a little bit different than that. You'd mention giving out address space as sort of a reward or an incentive in certain cases. Could you elaborate on why people want that? Can they sell it to whom do they sell it and how do people leverage the address space? So let's maybe start at the top. There are two 56 or two to the 8th galaxies. Each of which issue 256 stars, making for a total of about 65,000 or two to the 16th and then each star issues 65,000 planets making for a total of about 4 billion. So you can think of the galaxies as basically like governance nodes. So a majority of the galaxies can vote to upgrade those contracts that govern the whole address space. A star is sort of like your local ISP. That's where if you're a plant you buy default, get software updates or like kernel updates from and you imagine it stars could also sell services. So now there are people operating Bitcoin nodes as bolt on a Ford ends to orbit itself. And that usually happens at the star level. And then planets are kind of like individual nodes for personal use. They're like somewhere between it's for individuals. A planet name is like a domain name and a handle rolled into one, but it's also a network address. I can send packets you. Planets also issue moons. You imagine that moons are for devices. So planets and stars can change parents. They don't have to stay fixed and hierarchy and then moons can not be that's why you don't want that many addresses kind of running around the network 4 billion times 4 billion is a big big number. So address is not that big, right? That's about the size of IPv4. People are always concerned that it's not as big as the population of the earth, which is a valid concern in about ten years or more. The outer space could potentially be expanded by quorum of the galaxies. But for the time being, it's probably roughly actually the number of people who are online today. And the thinking being that, like I was saying before, if for any finite asset, I finite asset generally has some value. So ideally, a planet just costs more than you would make spamming the network with it. And the star of a star, of course, and so I think that's kind of the baseline value of the outer space. Basically, what would someone pay for a planet to use this system? And then, of course, in turn, the questions were like, why is the system use worth paying for it all? And I think boils down to its day to day usability, which is why we care about making things that people actually use from day to day. So assuming that someone will pay 5 bucks for a planet and there are quite a lot of people who will pay for the planet at that price, then the network is in turn pretty valuable. And we're not quite there, yeah, that's an insane valuation. But one of our primary concerns as Arabic gets more and more useful is basically how can you distribute address space to people who can make significant contributions.

"I think a lot of people are just by popularity or at least they'll be familiar with tools like slack and of course email and Microsoft Teams and maybe jira, it's an endless list of things people are using to work together and collaborative fashions. Can you compare and contrast some of those common solutions with what collaboration looks like using orbit? Sure, yeah. So the most important thing to know is I last talked to you guys in 2015, I think something like 2016. So for a long time, we were this time team. We're about 5 people who were kind of crazy enough to think, okay, maybe we can basically develop a totally different, almost like lineage of computing. And building a new platform is just like a completely insane thing to do. And the first half was like, okay, can you make this platform even work well enough to build some very, very simple prototype applications? And I'd say if I 2017 the prototypes were pretty nice and we were using urban a good amount ourselves. And so then over the course of 2018 and into 2019, we started to hone in on, okay, what did we really want to do with this thing? And then I think at the end of 2019, we started building what is now landscape. So landscape itself is definitely super immature as a product by comparison to any Microsoft Teams or slack or whatever. We're bigger now we're about 25 people or so. And that happened in 2018. So, you know, we're like able to build somewhat real software, but of course we also build the entire platform that the thing runs on top of. That's not entirely true. Urban is open-source, and there's a community contributing. But just so you have a good baseline of what we're not Microsoft. We're not slack. But yeah, we did build it just to cover our own use case of how do we keep the team connected. And where people who really like calm straightforward, very purpose build software. So in landscape, you can create a group and that group shares channels and a channel can be either a chat notebook, which is just a collection of basically blog posts with comments or it can be a collection of links in the spirit of say arena of Pinterest. So feature wise, we're like a little bit different than any of the chat focused communication platforms. And I think that's our main differentiator that's probably like an advantage, like most of these things are totally chat focused. But in terms of just overall maturity, like we're still mobile web, there's no mobile app, the onboarding is definitely pretty tough. It's still rough. That's the area that I think we can improve on a lot. And I think we will. This is not a super mature product that's ready for your giant company. And I think that it is however, I think pretty good for your little group of friends that were otherwise spread between whatever Discord and slack and notion and whatever else. So that's more of the use case that we see popping up. This is also somewhat true of, and there are a few kind of crypto focused companies using urban, I think, because it appeals just in terms of the level of ownership and control that people have. A lot of these companies are also experimenting with using urban as infrastructure. So building software for a bit or experimenting with using urban as kind of like a back end for moving transactions around and stuff like that. So urban is a platform can you describe some of the opportunities for a developer to maybe start a business or at least some sort of popular project on top of it? Yeah, sure, yeah. I can talk about actually a few things that people are working on presently that maybe jumping off point. And the other thing that's interesting is that it's a platform where the design of this address space that is finite, the idea there is that in contrast to the Internet, where an IP address is not a piece of personal property. In this case, address space is property, and the idea is that that property, the value of that property should be used to fund development of the platform. So we also pour a lot of address space as a resource into funding just general platform development, meaning we basically pay core developers to help us mature the runtime contribute to the kernel and so on. So we'll start with a former case, and I could talk a little bit about the grants program. One of the things that's been interesting to watch over the last 9 months or so is we had a group of employees. So we work on the I'm in charge of a company called tawan where the core developer. But urban, of course, he has open-source and is run by a community. There's even a foundation that supports community development as of about a month ago. And so about 9 months or almost a year ago, a group of ton employees who are really, really excited about payments and payments over orbit. And I do think there's some interesting ways in which people can do business over orbit, left to start a company that is now working specifically on building payment rails for orbit. So both building interfaces for people to deliver content to their listeners or viewers or readers. And then ways for those that audience to pay the creator basically to Patreon replacement. And so in their case, they're, I think, ultimately going to try and sell subscription based software. So they ship an app where you can go and download it from them over urban itself. And then you pay some feedback to them to actually use their service and to use their payment rails. This is definitely just emerging, but I'm so happy to see it happening because I've always felt like the interesting thing about urban as a platform shifts software to in contrast to the Internet is if I'm a developer of an application on orbit, I basically need to ship you. It's more similar maybe to an iOS model or something where I need to have something online where you can get the app itself. And once that's sort of like a single transfer right, I send you the payload of that application and then you run it yourself on your urban node. But the way that people should be able to make money there is by actually selling that as either a one off like you would buy an app or through some form of subscription. At this point, most people are doing it for fun, but I'd imagine that in the next year or two years, those bottles will start to get pioneered. And a lot of the people excited about figuring out how that should work are super active within the urban community. And those who are not, I think, specifically interested in building, yeah, at the application layer, you know, yeah, the system itself being this kind of alternate reality world of computing is a ton of fun to contribute to if you're like a serious systems person and we commit quite a lot of outer space to funding those people. So some of that may happen within this sort of little operating environment, which is like a file system, a networking protocol, a build system, application sandbox, and so on..

"But anyway, for the time being, I think landscape being this kind of think of it like a disk world alternative or an alternative to sort of like, it's kind of the alternative. We built it basically like being a small community in a company that used Google Docs, arena, or Pinterest or whatever, and message boards, as well as a chat app and trying to combine all those things. So that's kind of what landscape does. What you see on there is communities kind of similar to, yeah, what I remember from the earliest days, the Internet, these either communities that have a shared interest. So there's a bunch of music groups that are really fun and just weird and interesting. There are people say really enthusiastic about small computing, like building Raspberry Pi based home orbit rigs as an example. And then you have these communities that are more kind of creator focused. So it's like we're a creator has maybe a public Patreon or something. And now you can pay them somehow to get access to a group that they run on orbit, where everyone gets access pseudonymously to kind of connect with them more directly. As you kind of hinted at, we can't. Since the network is decentralized, you know, we see the people who pass through the public channels that we run, but we don't, you know, there's no real telemetry. We can't track who's on the network. So these are just sort of anecdotally what I see perusing the network myself. But actually, most of what I use it for is to connect with the company and with the community more broadly and for that purpose, it feels very cozy. It's really nice. It's nice to use something that's not constantly trying to get there's no like a landscape nitro. There's no advertising. There's no upgrade fields just like a solid. Someone wants to drive urban to me is like, you know, when someone has like a tchotchke on their shelf and you pick it up and it's like a lot heavier than you expected it to be. I feel like urban sort of has that quality. It's like, it just works. It's efficient. It's like sort of stable. Understand.

"So I know you've been on before, but for listeners who aren't necessarily aware of urban, I was wondering if you could give us just the high level. What is it? Sure, so since this is a somewhat technical audience, I'll give you a frame and technical terms, and then we can talk about it in different terms if you want to. But the idea is basically people should have a personal server of some kind. Most of the listeners are probably set up there on Unix servers. It's a nightmare. It's super complicated. Unix is an ancient operating system. We can do amazing things with it in the realm of building web services. But when it comes to doing personal computing, it's really, really hard to basically have a personal computer in the cloud of any kind. And so urban is a new software package that runs on top of any Unix machine within Internet connection. It's designed to be a personal server. So something that an ordinary person can own and control and use day to day, but also a totally new software stack for people to build on top of where the idea being that you ship software to an individual. They run it themselves. Everybody runs nodes on this totally decentralized network. It's a totally different model of how we might compute in the cloud, then using cloud services. So when you say personal server, what are some of the services that that encompasses? Yeah, it's a good question. I mean, today we use orbit basically as a communication tool. So to chat and share notes and links and stuff like that, I think that we have a lot of interest from people in the crypto space broadly because urban overlaps with that world. So you can see this being useful for people who are trading, working as syndicates, engaged in sort of personal commerce, so whether that's as a creator selling things or whether a host of a podcast or something. So replacing things like Patreon in that case or tools like most syndicates have some weird mash up of signal telegram and they're using exchanges and maybe they're using dexa. So basically social software. We have social networks, but we don't really have social software. We have to cobble together SaaS to do that for us, if that makes sense. And you also describe it as peer to peer. Can you expand on that? Sure, yeah. So urban is really two systems technically. It's urban ID, which is basically like a PKI that's deployed on Ethereum. So you own a name that's in this name registry on Ethereum with a private key, those names are these sort of short synthetic names. They're totally pseudonymous. You use that name by registering a key with it to boot a node and urban OS node, urban OS is this totally virtualized piece of software that runs on top of any Unix machine. And when you boot it, you sort of announce yourself to other peer nodes and say, hey, I'm online as this name. And you can contact me at this IP address. So then when you want to communicate with other nodes, let's say you're starting a group to do something. Or you're downloading software or whatever, you're always doing that point to point or person to person node to node. So while there are, you know, if I host a group and a hundred people join my group, I am basically the server for that group. So but in general, it's peer to peer, meaning people connect directly. It's not like everyone goes to Facebook dot com and Facebook has the group basically as an entry in their database..

"It'll be this fall which is delayed. Compared with other years in the past a lot of states would be putting out maps by summertime late summer that would either create a lot of chaos and bickering or just past sometimes in the middle of the night. Also if you're interested in hearing more about redistricting and gerrymandering go check out gerrymandering project that we did here on the podcasts and at five thirty eight dot com. There's lots of information about redistricting there. Okay this question. I really like. I haven't answered to it. Because i already saw the question but considering that we're about to wrap up the week. What is your favorite friday news dump story. Has there ever been some gem buried deep in the friday papers. That really stuck out is an important or really odd way. I should are against her. That where are the canonical friday news. Top stories. I mean number one. Every mini scandal scandal of the trump presidency seemed to break on friday. That's true. yeah. And because i already saw was able to do research. It reminded me specifically of the night of august twenty fifth which. I don't think there's particularly some huge scandal. But the night of august i was sitting at a bar and cnn that was playing in the background and it had divided up the screen until like four different parts because one hurricane harvey was approaching. Texas to trump. Had pardoned ajar Sheriff arizona and three sebastian. Gorka had been fired. Slash resigned from the white house and each part of that news cycle was taking up like one quadrant of cnn's screen. Now that either of those are like a particularly important dump that they really need to hide from the american public. But i have a picture of it. My phone say from august twenty fifth two thousand seventeen. I dunno what sticks out to you. I feel like we had so many emergency podcasts. Over the past four years or five years or whatever. When did trump announced that he had covered is quite late at night. Was that on a friday. I we'd had some friends over..

"We have it. Can you won that special election in alabama next question does rhonda's santa's win in the recent fox news straw-poll mean anything significant for the republican presidential primary so wishes the fox's chapel Is this like scientific effort now. So this is what this listener i believe is referring to this is from fox florida governor rhonda santa's edged out former president donald trump as conservatives choice for president in twenty twenty four in a straw poll conducted over the weekend as fox. News host tucker. Carlson announced that he is not considering a run for the white house to santa's pulled in seventy four percent approval to trump's seventy one percent in the poll conducted at the western conservative summit in denver. So i think this has been a little mistaken about the fox. News straw poll. I don't think that fox news conducted the straw poll. Or maybe they conducted it but it was out the western conservative summit in denver. Seventy four versus seventy one percent descent having a higher approval than the former president. Yes actually let me point out. That's an example of approval voting. Where you can just say. How many people would you find a good. Gop nominee in twenty. You're bringing it full circle. And because of that i would imagine that there are people who would rank trump won into santa's tube but finding both acceptable so been in more traditional straw-poll poll. I'm not sure that the santa's would have one and is again a poll of like a group of activists and not necessarily true reconcile voters. But i'm going to start an interesting. I mean i think is clearly the person that you would consider the front runner if trump doesn't run with the santa's challenge trump. Look i think that there are a group of saying relatively speaking republicans who would think that may buy into trumpet trumpism. I'm not sure. They want him to be their nominee just in terms of winning the general election for the election in a row. He did lose to biden as the incumbent. This next time biden will be the incumbent which is probably a small advantage in general. Unlike other past presidents trump's image has not improved since his presidency hit a very chaotic a final lame duck period in office obviously events of january sixth polls show trump behind by by a wider margin the election by last year. But santa's is the name that i think is being buzzed about this bridge toward being trumpy enough without having quite the same amount of baggage that trump brings a follow up question to this was from steve. It's rhonda santa's has been getting positive. Press i know. It's a long ways off. But is he a potential twenty twenty four front runner. We've already kind of answered that question but can he activate the type of voter you've talked about before on fivethirtyeight white non college voter who doesn't necessarily respond to polls. I think that's a very unanswered question. A good question that is going to be pivotal in the both the primary. The general electorate in twenty eight teen. There's trump on the ballot per se in the gop had pretty high turnout but democrat said equally. I turn out in one over swing voters wall. But the thing is rhonda. Santa's did very well in florida in two thousand eighteen. And i guess the other thing to point out here is that the florida. Gop is turning out not just don college educated. White voters turning out a multi-racial multi-ethnic coalition of working class voters to some extent. I mean it's doing well..

"There's still an outside chance that someone other than atoms wins. I mean there were some polls. Where garcia gained a lot through second choice votes. The reason why she's kind of a compromise between adams on the right relative to new york still liberal right adams on the right and widely on the left and then yang explicitly endorsed her as his number two. So the absentee ballots are also thought to be good for garcia. Same that she's currently in third place behind wiley if someone pulls off an upset. It's based on the polling.

Yeah okay you're holding all right. Let's move on to some of the other questions that we receive from listeners. This first question relates to new york. But it's a broader question to west asks. What can the turnout levels of primaries in states like virginia and new york tell us about the national environment. I think they're curious about whether interest in politics has kind of fallen off a cliff since the twenty twenty election. I think it tells us almost nothing which primaries are more competitive depends on lots of things. How competitive the racist. How much money the candidates spending on much media coverage the race gets going to criticize him by name. But it won't in general the take we are like. Here's primary not number is what's it mean for the mid term. If you're running take it's a nice day out. Just go and have a nice little lunch you know. Get a nice little sandwich.

A Brief History of Neuroscience
"So neuroscience. The study of the nervous system has had an interesting history of being both extremely old and extremely new Ancient greeks and egyptians went back and forth whether the brain or the heart was the center of intelligence and hippocrates argued that the brain was the center though this wouldn't gain traction until the roman physician galen proposed it It took until an understanding of electricity. In the nineteenth century before we could really understand the brain the experiments of luigi gala vanni and the electrical activity of the body pave the way for research in the nervous system for awhile. Neuroscience research was divided into different fields such as physiology anatomy zulu psychiatry etc David roche helped integrate these fields creating the neuroscience research program at mit in nineteen sixty two. james mcgowan established the first department of neuroscience at university of california irvine in nineteen sixty four and later major neuroscience organizations were created including the international brain research organization.

"The most common example in europe and later america is the werewolf accursed man who turns into a bloodthirsty beast under the full moon. The word where wolf comes from the old english rare for man and wolf for wolf. Dvd players and underworld fans. Please resist the urge to correct this to liken throat. Because they're actually different things. It has a parallel etymology from lucan therapists in the greek for wolf and human but it originally applied not to supernatural. Bc's but to people who thought they were supernatural beasts bc's according to the physician galen when people these days present with animals delusions they may be diagnosed with clinical like hanthropy like throats can transform at will and they have a more specific story than where wolves as an institution do in greek mythology lie cone the king of arcadia who got it in his head. That was not as initiatives people believed and that he was just the right guide approve it in the most popular version of the myth like cohn held a ceremony and feast to honor zeus. Zeus showed up. The main dish on the table was the roasted flesh of cones own son. Nick demus scheme being that would eat nikomas thinking it was pork thus proving. He wasn't all knowing turns out he was rather than kill like own. Outright zeus turned him into a wolf and resurrected the prince who then ascended to the throne but where wolves unlike in throats. There are half a dozen underworld films if you need more of that and even though there are many different werewolf legends in many different cultures.

Nature meets lisa frank at night though the boto transforms into a handsome young man who seduces girls gets them pregnant and then pops back to his river. Come morning you will see this pattern of behavior repeatedly today the boto and can tato loves a party. They can't resist inviting themselves. So if you're having a get together in the amazon river basin keep a close eye on your single girlfriends because it's really hard to serve a dolphin with a paternity suit. You should be okay if your party is endorsed. Though boto cantatas may look human but they have a distinct tell they retain their blow holes on the back of their heads and will always wear a hat to hide it asking that handsome stranger to take his hat off inside may be the only way to reveal the bodo and cantata renowned for being charming to the point that partygoers will beg them to stay even as morning encroaches and the bowen can tato needs to get back to the water and they aren't one trick dolphins either they have the power to control storms and can transform humans into an cantatas themselves or afflict them with disease or insanity. Most people who live near the amazon won't go near it between dusk and dawn or won't go in the water alone during the daytime because in cantatas are fond of ducting humans. They fall in love with the children born of their dalliances or just anybody near the river. Who looks like they be good company.

"Hi I'm Kevin I can vary I'm here to help you reach your Joel as a leader and a human being welcome to remarkable TV today we're talking about lessons from family reunions are you ready well let's get started many people say our family reunion is different than most people most people have an afternoon long family I mean not us starts Friday night goes through Sunday at lunch people come from multiple states and that's one of the reasons why it's longer our family reunion this year was held at our farm in Michigan and so because it's just recently happened as I'm recording this for you I thought I'd share some of my lessons and how they might apply to you too one history provides understanding one of the things that happens for me at a family reunion is a chance for me to connect with my uncles and I aunts and uncles cousins so a generation above me and get a sense of the history of the family the stories that were told the things that helped to create an understanding of who we are and where we came from history provides understanding we can certainly get that from more than a family reunion but a family lean is a great place to get new perspective and understanding about ourselves our families and our backgrounds number two learning from our elders this is I suppose related to the first but let me just tell you a quick story one of my uncles Michael Galen told a story about something that someone taught him once and it went something is he was telling a story about something that happened to him and he said here's the lesson when there's when you have one boy you have one boy when you have two boys you have Oh boy when you have three boys you have no boy at all I've thought of that story and that lesson several times in the last couple of weeks and it's just an example of things we can learn from our elders when we gather at a family reunion unless we are the oldest person at the reunion there are others around us within us I actually believe in our world today we don't spend enough time thinking about and valuing the idea of learning from our elders a family reunion can great place to do that number three the power of making memories there are a whole bunch of memories I won't bore you with what they are that aim from this particular family reunion and one previous family reunion that I had the chance to host I asked everyone to share their favorite memory from past family reunions I believe that we all need more opportunities and ways to make memories in a family reunion is a great place do that to make lasting and meaningful memories next family is about more than just blood certainly families together because of a blood relationship but then in every generation there are marriages and there are folks that aren't blood relation that become an integral part the family that's true but in our particular case there's a close friend of mine who has been to some pass reunions and many people were saying well where's Allen and why isn't Allen here and when I said well he's not in the family many people said well yes he is so my point here is that maybe you don't have a close family or you don't have a lot of extended family members family in family reunions can be about more than just blood relationships and so don't lose that if you're thinking yeah well Kevin I don't have the opportunity to do what you described and lastly it's worth the effort is worth the effort to attend it's worth effort in our case to host because of all of the benefits that come both in the short and long term it's worth the effort to attend and to to pay into engage in family reunions well whether you've ever been to a family reunion or not whether you have the chance to create that or not I I invite you to attend or create your own maybe it isn't with blood relatives maybe you're going to create that family and described that however you WanNa do that put those people together in a situation where they can enjoy each other's company where they can engage with each other where they can make some memories you will learn things you will laugh and you'll build relationships let me close with today's tweet we all need family whether blood or not for strength stability tea and relationships who is your family you know each Monday morning I send a newsletter out called unleashing remarkable potential and we would love to have you join us if you're not receiving that newsletter each week for to get inspiration and information and education and stimulation please join us you can sign up right here.

"galen" Discussed on Bitcoin Radio
"It's that time again dan. I've got an awesome show in store gaylon dan's ago. He's the c._t._o. Mao spelt everybody knows about. I've mentioned several times. They're also the parent company of bitcoin radio. Oh and i was able to pull away their c._t._o. One of the busiest guys and all of development and blockchain maybe in the world. He's you'll laugh at that but gaylon is zaire's also a friend of mine and i've been honored. I've been privileged. I've been really excited to get a chance to get to know him. I've also been able to learn from this dude. He's got a lot of wisdom. He's got a lot of knowledge and he's a little bit funny to y'all soon. <hes> some of you have seen him. I've actually interviewed him on video. Before an is just really you know he's got this really great ability to conceptualize explain the space to everybody whether you are high end developer and you understand the tech at a really really high level or if you're just you know joe blackburn burn who's not a developer and not in the space as any technician period. I love the social media side. I love bitcoin will the politics of bitcoin and all of that but it it is not in me to understand how to write code. Fortunately gaylon understands those types of people like me and you for the most part and he's going to be able to break some things out but we got a lot of fun stories today. Some of you may remember in that initial interview. He told us a little bit about his first encounter with with a theory and that encounter was not a small one that was of italic chilin hanging out sleeping at his place at his apartment while this little thing called a theory and was being created and i'm not not going to tell the story for galen but these are the things that i enjoy. I mean like you can. It's like sitting around the campfire at camp and you hear these really cuco stories or whatever you hear these really cord adventure stories and just captivates. When you sit around gaylon you get to a point where you like. You know just like an all you listen to what the so. I'm really proud to have him on but i really enjoy being able to explain to him. You're explain to you guys. You know what he's been doing on this level for my introduction to him. He's probably gonna get on really shut up joe. I don't wanna wanna hear all this stuff about me. Let me just talk but regardless anyways galen come on man. What's going on. Dude welcome to bitcoin radio finally glad to be here. Joe is <hes> pretty a busy week. Everyone getting back from burning man sort of everyone's getting back to it all at once but <hes> glad to be here man. You know like with everybody like you're. You're in the san francisco bay area right and you know the burning man is obviously a big deal. I mean it's a big deal for a lot of people across the united states but specifically in the area does the city inti out during burning man surprisingly yeah it's <hes> at least in my office. I'd say because we're we're we're in a co working space the blockchain center and all the mouth team. We're in this sorta corner of this larger co working space. The whole place just emptied out a everyone seemed to go to burning man from san francisco. I guess it started in san francisco but everyone empties out to the desert now. I guess it's close by san francisco. Go right well. It's a it's a good ways away. I think it's actually <hes> i've never been so yeah. I think it's it's actually like <hes> hundreds of miles away. It's it's definitely a pretty long drive okay so clearly both me and you have zero experience with burning man. That's the easiest way to put this and i'm glad that everybody out. There is having a great time yeah. I i haven't gone yet. <hes> there's a surprising amount of people working in cryptocurrency that i'll go like i heard brock pierce was there. He was in this on some sort of like a bitcoin camp. There were doing. I heard all sorts of things like weird. Satanic rituals to drive up the price ice who knows clearly whatever they did worked because bitcoins obviously had a nice little run. I think we're at ten seven right now and so a lot of people were calling eight thousand seven thousand dollars the other day i mean it's just it's just always funny to me that nobody knows what the hell they're talking about. When it comes to the price of bitcoin oh yeah no. It's i mean predicting. The price of any market is really really hard to do and many times. You're incorrect more than you're correct. If you're correct more than your incorrect correct <hes> you could make a huge amount of money but most people don't of course you know the the problem is that we're greedy right. Oh absolutely i mean. It's like this game if i said hey gaylon here do you want one hundred dollars like yeah man. Give me a hundred dollars so you go to mexico gambling casino the great bitcoin exchange and and you go and you make one hundred dollars but guess what now you one hundred dollars and you're like i can make a thousand dollars so it's time to go back to the bitcoin casino the gambling machine of bit macs with sir arthur. You know running the show hit. The liquidation button which is by the way is not true. I don't want to put that on arthur. I don't know if it's true. I'll just put it that way yeah now. There's <hes> <hes> i mean the greed generally drives markets. I think that's the the big driving principle i mean. It's an extent everything we do is for greed right. Well yeah everything it well. Yeah i mean there are definitely people very altruistic out there but <hes> i mean the whole way. All of the pricing works the security and bitcoin join. Everything is based around everyone acting in their own self interest so galen. I'm really excited to have you on man you know. I believe you know so much about the developing space the developers just in general you know you're the architects of the giant buildings the giant projects giant everything that's gonna come out of the space one day right you know the the net flicks is that are beating out the blockbusters back. You know fifteen years ago. You're doing that right now. One way or the next contributing to that next growth and and for the audience listening you know gaylon is not as i said in the introduction. He's also a friend. He's not just a developer. He's not just someone. I know i consider galen of front and you know as gaylon <unk> as being a friend of mine. I've been witness. I've been privileged to listen to him. Tell stories you know and then here's some this we're gonna get to this here shortly but but gaylon let's go ahead and start with a little bit of your background. I'm like what like. How long have you been developing. You know obviously we can keep this quick kinda. Give us some background on who you are and what you've done so yeah i guess about a decade now. I've been doing a software development starting with like internships or i was doing stuff for research and i got more for into doing <hes> like probability and financial based programming was doing research. 'cause there's a lot more money in <hes> ways to find a job if i'm doing like modeling for casinos rather than <hes> trying to predict an earthquake which which <hes> is still <hes> people don't think you can really do according to the u._s. At least do you think they could do it. Oh i i mean i think eventually we might be able to but right now. We cannot reliably predict an earthquake and it's the same way for about one hundred years and it's probably gonna be the same way for another hundred years if we really had to get f- i guess but eventually hopefully the technology will allow or prevent them altogether. Prevent altogether would probably be very tricky but there maybe maybe knowing when when they're more likely to happen that something galen just code something a predictable algorithm that tells us and we can get out of there right no they even even when people have an idea about how systems that complex might work there are just so many small little things that all interact with each other and if you get one inaccurate measurement that just cascades cascades and cascades it'll throw the whole thing offense so marvel yet like whether it's really hard to predict whether <hes> more than ten days out because there you have all these when you're measuring things all these small inaccuracies on the instruments and things interact with himself over and over so many times it just it could becomes really hard to accurately predict things along long span of time out known about it anyway moving move on from earthquakes earthquakes <hes> i i did programming <hes> like a bit all over the place. Hold on hold on. You should be called earthquake. That's a cool name bro. Let's everybody for everybody listening. I was like trying to like give gala nickname before the show. I was like man. I need a cool name. The call you bro. You are the earthquake developer bra earthquake doc earthquake. Let's go all right <hes> so i started doing branching out a little bit i got into some things related payments <hes> some stuff and <hes> my first introduction to <hes> blockchain was actually really when <hes> i've been in san francisco at the time i just got there and i was staying in this sort of hacker house type setup which was basically just a bunch of <hes> <hes> people all around my age like early twenties all in a house. We use this as a yeah. This was twenty twenty two thousand thirteen two thousand fourteen that i was there s._f. Rent was just way too much money as you get a lot of these people just sort of piling into a place some working for tech companies as some working for like startups a lot of people just sort of like writing code doing some cool thanks and <hes> this particular one was called the negative <hes> you could actually find it in the news news. There were various <hes> like local people in san francisco. That really didn't like it well they they just. I think it was originally eh. It was originally either church or some sort of like how people who couldn't like afford it and then we took it over injured tech house. Yes so what happened is like this was a place where other people were staying out of like a charity situation nation and apparently at the owners were either sold it or they they started winning it and then you guys moved in when we moved in it. Actually i think it ended up being not not up to code at all because it was a bunch of kids who didn't know the most about building codes and everything else so two converting this house so yeah no extremes piled in like. Was it like four to a room or having like how how does this work it was. I think it was like either one or two in in a room but we were definitely pretty piled in. I'd say there was probably like fifty. Ish people there fifty yeah. I mean we had this. It was like this four story are- like abandoned church that had been rented out sort of turned into like a giant apartment place that house for developers alpers it almost was it was it was a really cool place though okay so we don't lose everybody because although i'm really enjoying the the story and i'm sorry for my peanut gallery commentary <hes> i'm actually not that sorry because it's really fun but <hes> but this is where a certain individual was <hes> was staying right sleeping sleeping or wherever you guys could just like you yes there was <hes> vitality actually stayed with us for a little bit don uh-huh yeah i i didn't know very much about bitcoin or blockchain or <hes> very much at all about any any of that we did have one guy who is working with a bit pay at.
Is the US political system a duopoly doomed to fail?
"Hopefully, you know, more people will vote in the primary, and therefore you're going to get people that, you know, we're not just trying to appeal to their particular extreme the second part of the Gail porter election reform trifecta ranked choice voting. Here's how ranked choice voting works. You'll now have four candidates. That made it out of the top four primary. There's four candidates will all be listed on the general election ballot. And you come and vote for them in order of preference. So it's easy. This is my first choice. This candidates. My second choice, my third choice. This is my fourth choice. When the votes are tabulated if no candidate has received over fifty percent, then whoever came in last has dropped and votes for that candidate are then reallocated to those voters second choice and the count is run again in till one candidate reaches over fifty percent. And a what that does is it gives a candidate of need to appeal to a broader group of odors, and very importantly, it eliminates one of the hugest barriers to competition in the existing system. And that is the spoiler argument. So what happens currently is that? If there is let's say an attractive third party candidate or an independent candidate, both Democrats and Republicans will make the argument that nobody should vote for them. Because they will simply draw votes away from a democrat or draw votes away from Republican and therefore spoil the election for one of the duopoly candidates. Once you have ranked choice voting everybody can pick whoever they want as their first choice. Second choice. Third choice. No vote is wasted. And no vote spoils the election for another candidate. And then the last part of the trifecta is nonpartisan redistricting gerrymandering has to go essentially when parties control drawing the district's they can draw districts that will be more likely to tilt in favor of their party. And they can end up having a disproportionate number of quote, unquote, safe Republican seats are safe democratic seats, by the way that they draw the district's and we wanna make that that go away. In addition to election rule reforms porter. Gale would like to see changes to the rules around governing. So congress makes its own rules for how it functions and over time these rules customs and practices have been set in place to give an enormous amount of power to the party that controls that chamber, and what's happened. And this is sort of collusion in a way is when the other party takes over. They do it the same way pretty much. So we propose moving away from partisan control of the day to day legislating in congress and also, of course, in state, legislatures as well, the third leg of their reform agenda is about money in politics. But they're also led them to a different conclusion than many reformers where we differ. With so many people champion these reforms is that we don't believe that money in politics is the core issue. Ultimately, the problem is really this nature of competition that leads to this partisanship. And that's not a money issue per se. That's a structural issue. If you take money out of politics without changing the rules of the game. You'll simply make it cheaper. For those using the existing system to get the self interested results that they want without changing the incentives to actually deliver solutions for the American people. Having said that we do believe that there are benefits to increasing the power of smaller donors, and so the reforms that we have suggested are primarily focused on increasing the power of small smaller donors, for instance. Having the government itself match donations from small donors. We should know that most of the ideas Galen porter are presenting here are not all that novel. If you follow election reform, even a little bit, even we poked into a lot of them a couple of years ago in an episode called ten ideas to make politics, less rotten. I guess that's one measure of how successful and dominant. The political duopoly is that plenty of seemingly sensible people have plenty of seemingly sensible reform, ideas that for the most part gained very little traction. It is definitely challenging this is a ground game. We're not going to be able to do this in a in a year or one election cycle because the resources that the current duopoly have to deploy to play their game are substantial despite the rather depressing, or at least sobering picture that you paint of the political industry throughout the report. You express quite a bit of optimism. And I wanna know why or how because I don't see the avenue, I guess for optimism. Well, I do think we have a basic optimism. We have no sense that it will be easy to change the rules of this game. For a whole variety of reasons. But the good news is we've had some progress. We've got some nonpartisan primary states now, including California, you know, we've got ranked choice voting in. Maine. I think what seems to be building in America is a growing appetite and a growing recognition that this isn't working for our country. And I think the younger generation millennials are particularly outraged and concerned and open to, you know, all kinds of new ideas. But I think it's going to take time. The most exciting strategy in this area that we champion is a strategy put forth by the centrist project and full disclosure. I'm on the board of the centrist project. It's now actually called unite America. And this is the Senate fulcrum strategy. So here's the idea. Let's a elax five centrist problem solving oriented US Senator. Who at that? Number five would likely deny either party an outright majority in the Senate, which would make those five senators the most powerful single coalition in Washington DC able to serve as a bridge between the two parties or to align with one party or the other depending on the issue in order to move forward, very difficult policy solutions where previously there has not been the political will. So we don't need to wait to change. The actual rules of the game to deliver politician's office who can act independently of the existing political industrial complex. So
