Connecting 'The Silence of the Lambs' to the Modern Liberal
"As Silence of the Lambs that movie this is an amazing scene in there Anthony Hopkins plays Hannibal lecter the serial killer right He's talking to Jodie Foster the FBI agent Many of you have seen it And Jodie Foster's investigating another serial killer Buffalo Bill and she can't seem to figure out or get to the crux of what's motivating Buffalo Bill to kill these young women And Anthony Hopkins who was a killer himself but is a very brilliant psychiatrist too Play an elector part He keeps telling her no no Clarice every time she and finally they get to the point he covets He covets when he can't be That's why he wants to be a woman so he covets I always love that scene And strangely every time I get into some dispute about liberalism I always think of that scene Not because Anthony Hopkins or Jodie Foster probably both liberals himself But because when you get to the essence of what the modern liberal is their quest for tyranny totalitarianism and censorship all of this stuff makes sense and it all falls into place Why would you want an open border Because you've told us why you want an open border They literally wrote an op-ed at the Wall Street at The New York Times excuse me a liberal paper About demographic destiny called we can replace them They talked about it all the time This is their thing Just look that up Don't take my word for it Then of course when that results in a backlash and some people take it to mean something it does or doesn't mean they try to blame their theory on conservatives It's the weirdest thing you've ever seen

"Tell us a little bit more and this is a huge change about a coastal town in Japan and an enormous ball that has washed up on a local beach. Just describe the ball to us as well. If you haven't seen it, urge you go and have a look at how big this random ball is. This is not a little marble. This is not a bowling ball. This is one serious macho boil. So it's a big, huge iron thing. The military came and they X rayed and they found it's hollow. Now in many of the movies like with Jodie Foster contact and stuff, this is the beginning of something very serious happening. Most likely it probably came from some sort of a fishing fleet or something like that. Standard in the ocean and sadly, the giveaways of there's two human sized handles on it, not the size of a human body, but the size of a hand. Bricks and ancient Egypt are about the size of bricks and 2023 Britain because the human hand is a similar size. So it's kind of give away it wasn't an alien artifact. However, it could be. How disappointed are you that it suggests that this 1.5 meter in diameter ball might not be something that's come from little green characters. Another kind of think how curious how ingenious they would be to put little handles on it to delude us. What if those aren't for little handhelds, but for big slimy tentacles, you know, they're descended from the mothership. What I love is that around the world, people have these fantasies. It's a desire again for freedom and escape, and also a belief that the aliens will be good, which tends to be more of an American belief than a European belief. Thank you as ever for joining me in the studio. You're with the globalist. It's

Yeah, did you see that that was chuck Todd's version of pushback? And that was. Nicely done. Chuck. Really? So when he says when he gives you a softball, like there is bipartisan support for mental health. And you don't say no, there isn't. Yeah, it would not be the answer. So the answer would be, no, you moron. Every single Republican voted against mental health funding. They also voted against the inflation reduction act. Yes. I blame the bangs and the weak chin. Yes. There you go. Bangs are aspirational at best. One more, James. Yes. You know, the number one priority with respect to crime in America for Republicans is going to be the fentanyl crisis. We talk about terrible gun crimes in America, but we've had over a 100,000 deaths because of fentanyl pouring across our border, which is unsecured right now. The top priority for Republicans come January. Google had you be the guy saying, I'm playing the role of that checked out. Hank, let me do let me do my own bangs. Okay, you say our borders completely. So our supporters are completely insecure. And the fentanyl problem is a lot worse than any sort of gun. Okay, that was doing journalism. Okay, our border's not once completely unsecured. We're getting the fentanyl if it's unsecured. Joe Biden has stopped more fentanyl at the border than any other president. Chuck, just a little. Just like the journalism could even be aspirational like your bangs. It'd be struggled journalism like their struggle bangs. Just try to do a little something that resembles a question. Goodness. She's going to have a I watched it by accident. I don't know why my DVR has failed me again, Chris. I thought it had stopped recording. Tod just because I'm a child foam. Yes.

And then put in Jodie Foster from no, do it. Okay. Just kidding. She's losing it. I think I'm very tired. I've been in a very long vacation. And then I don't sleep when I lie. Do you get all wound up? Okay. Hey, Chris. Here's a guess the quote for you. Let's do this thing. I'm a little all over the place. All right. All righty now.

"Okay, so Jill tarter you go first on the question should we search for life in space or UAS or are you a no? Absolutely. Yes. Okay, Paul said, that means you're the no, but make it clear to us so we can make it official. On the question of should we search for life in space? Are you a yes or a no? I am a no because I believe it is not a very fruitful question to ask. All right, an interesting starting point. So Jill, you got off to a fast start and telling us about your enthusiasm for the search for intelligent life in space, but take a few minutes now and tell us why you're so passionate about the search. I think at this particular time in our history, on this planet, it's very, very important to encourage people to have a cosmic perspective. And I think there's nothing that does that more than thinking about life beyonders and intelligent life beyond. And why is a cosmic perspective? Necessity, it's because we have all of these challenges on this planet with respect to having a long future food insecurity water insecurity, all kinds of political and, you know, even more like differences and we're not going to be able to solve these challenges as nation states. We're going to have to have a global cooperative consensus about how to deal with these challenges. And I think that when we talk about life beyond earth, particularly intelligent life, we're in fact holding up a mirror to all the people in the conversation. And that mirror shows us not that we are all different, but that we are really all fundamentally earthlings. And we need this cosmic perspective to make us act like earthlings to cooperate in ways that we have traditionally not done. All right, a very interesting case made about perspective, cosmic perspective being involved in a benefit of searching for life out there beyond the stars. Paul Sutter, you are a no on the question of whether we should be searching for intelligent life in space. Why are you a no? I'd like to start off by saying I am a cosmologist and I wholeheartedly agree with doctor tartars, a statement that we should have a cosmic perspective that we should look bigger than the earth. We should look through the lens that we are one tiny little planet clinging to the life in the habitable zone of a star. That we should come together to solve our problems that face us as a global community problems like climate change. And that we need to cooperate. We need to invest in a long-term future. And so that was very beautifully put, and I completely agree. I don't know, however, if the search for extraterrestrial life speaks directly or in isolation to those problems. There are other questions we can ask that offer us that cosmic perspective. We can investigate the origins of the solar system. We can investigate and search for non intelligent life. We can study the Big Bang in the ultimate fate of the universe and how stars are born in cycle through generation after generation, there are so many beautiful, wonderful, powerful questions that confront us as curious inquisitive humans that we are, and that on balance when we look at all the questions we can possibly investigate. And all the possible lines of inquiry and all the things that we can possibly be curious about. The search for extraterrestrial intelligence is one of those questions is certainly is, and I would never be one to put down or diminish someone else's curiosity. But we do not have unlimited resources unlimited time unlimited brain power to investigate these questions. And so we have to take the question of are we alone in the universe, which is a very powerful moving question, and put it in context with the other questions that are equally as powerful and equally as moving. And decide with our precious resources that we have available in astronomy, how much should we devote to this question? So let me just stay with you for a moment longer, Paul. If I understand what you're saying, the harm, if there's any harm that might be caused by continuing the search for intelligent life, would be a misallocation of resources, relative to other things that could be done with those resources. Is that the crux of your argument? Yeah, that's the crux of one of my arguments is there's an opportunity cost to searching for extraterrestrial life. There's another argument that I'll probably present later, which focuses on the public harm due to false alarms of when we find signals or apparent evidence of extraterrestrial life. And we go out in the press and make a big deal about it, and then it turns out it is not a signal. It is not a sign of intelligent life. Ultimately, that harms the relationship between scientists and the public. All right, let me bring it back to you. And what is the search involved now? What sorts of resources and you've been involved in it for so long? And for folks who don't know, I mean, you are a giant in this field and everybody who saw the film contact back in the late 90s about Jodie Foster being involved in the search for intelligent life knows that you are a consultant on that film. You are highly, highly respected in this field. And obviously you're passionate about it. So there's probably nobody better equipped than you to tell us, how has that search been going? How is it financed? And then I'd like you to get to the question of the use of resources. The resources that are being spent are minimal, they are within the means of some of our most wealthy individuals and that's how it's being funded this year. And for the past few decades, we're talking about maybe spending $10 million a year, I think it's more like kind of have the feeling $10 billion a week to support something like the James Webb Space Telescope, which will show us all of these wonders that Paul has been talking about being interested in finding. But what the wonderful telescopes that are on the books or on the sky right now will tell us about is astrophysical phenomena. It won't tell us about whether they can engineered phenomena out there. So we can make use of archival data from the astronomer's resources to try and look at a new way at that data. To see if we can find some patterns that we don't think nature can produce, but in general, we have to build our own tools because we're looking for things that the astronomers are not looking for. And so $10 million a year seems to me like not an unreasonable investment. And if you ask me, well, what would I do with a $100 billion or a $1 billion a year? I actually, I actually can't answer that question. Because our ability to search is limited by

Would-Be Reagan Assassin Supports Gun Control
"Do you know what ABC did? I just saw something that almost brings me to my knees. They interviewed the man who tried to murder Ronald Reagan. Who destroyed the life of Jim Brady, who put the bullet in the stomach of a brave Secret Service agent. I don't even like to say his name. Because these people wasn't he the guy that was trying to vie for the attention of Jodie Foster wasn't that him, this desperate, pathetic, cowardly man who destroyed so many lives nearly killed Ronald Reagan. He's free as a bird now. He's gone. He's out. Gets to do whatever he wants. And he sat down with APC news and gave them an interview. Told ABC's nightline that he supports gun control.

"World is rob Morgan and you're listening to Monday morning credit. Got to say, you and I are born in the same year and you look phenomenal. Like I'm looking at your Instagram and you are looking, you are looking shredded and diesel, and I look at myself in a mirror, I want to jump out a window. What? You're like, you're like, and we're born in the same year. You look like you're about to turn 21 or 22. Rob, what's the rob, what's the magic pill? What's the secret? Hey, man, mind your business and drink a lot of water. I guess I guess so. I guess so, man, I gotta say, but nah, I try to, you know, work out, maintain my health as much as I can, you know, this is literally the only space we technically occupy. Or you could say you have an apartment, you can say you have a house, you miss rent or mortgage three months, somebody's coming to get it. You don't even own that. You know what I mean? So you can say you know, occupy space, but technically your body is the only thing you really occupy and that you can really try to manage and control and use in the best way that you possibly can. You know what I mean? Man. So the way you treat your body now is how your body will treat you later. So if you're sitting on your ass now, then expect somebody to be wiping your ass later. You know? If you up and active and keep it moving then your body is going to thank you later and you'll be able to have a more dignified life towards the end God willing. We all have health issues and things of that nature. Right. As much as you can control, I just try to stay active. I love using kettlebells and I still make some bar. I love calisthenics. I'm getting into running now. I'm trying to maintain a three mile pace at 30 minutes or less. So, you know, planet trying to turn it up now, the older I get, the more I turn it up, man. You know, and I look at that 21 year old that I used to be when I used to think I was in shape. And I probably dust his little ass right now. Yeah, you're looking good. And I have to tell you. Yeah, and then I've been trying to get you on forever. And I'm so happy this is happening right now. Oh my God, I love your work. For those listening or watching on YouTube, we're just gonna run down a few of your filmography. We'll go with depths in a little bit, but for those listening, Stranger Things winning time don't look up the unforgivable Greyhound just mercy bull punisher and then we're gonna get to some of the other ones that I mean there's just so much. What I love about you rob is that you serve all your characters justice, right? You put your heart and soul into them. And I love that about you, rob, because I'm not saying there's actors out there that mail it in. Sometimes we see performances that might look like that. Man, you never mail it in. You are very true to everything you do. Thank you for that acknowledgment. I think that's a testament of how I was brought in to the understanding of developing and making a character. And American theater of Harlem was where I got my start at with Keith Johnston, who was the artistic director of my very first acting coach and he gave me one of the strongest, most powerful lines that I've ever heard and it still sticks with me now. And there's no vulgarity on your show. Oh, you can let it go. Absolutely. You know, he says, nobody gives a fuck about you. It's your job to make them give a fuck about the character. Is that right there? You gotta take yourself out and really dive in and honor that character. You know what I mean? So that one line just resonated with me real hard and that and it's just like, that's just how much you are committed into bringing the truth of that character to life. Because oftentimes we're playing voiceless characters, you know, at least me myself. When I get, you know, and I'm having a chance of empowering these persons out in society by representing them in a way of speaking a truthfully so that they won't feel, hey, he just giving the characterization. That's not how it is, you know. So I just really try to invest as much as I can into bringing the reality of those characters to our living rooms and theaters and things of that nature. Rob, when you're portraying somebody like Irvin Johnson senior or Herbert Richardson, is there more pressure? Is there more pressure on you? Because their actual people, they are, you know, they've actually existed. Is that more pressure on your end? Or is it, you know, you kind of have the same formula regardless of the character existed or not? Well, I mean, you know, you try to come from the school of don't feel pressure, a plant pressure. Yeah. And as long as I am. Giving my all into understanding the mindset of these characters, then, you know, hopefully whoever I am for training can say, you know, at least he put a human being on screen. He put a human being up there. So that's really what I try to make sure happens for me. Yeah, and you have a great story about your first acting experience. It all starts with one of the most wonderfully underrated movies of all time contact, right? To summarize it, you're dating a girl at the time. She says, hey, there's an open call. Let's go and rob, that's kind of how you can add anything you want to that. Is that kind of how you find your way? Yeah, brother. That's exactly what happened. You know, most of the time males, you know, we fall into our passions of life chasing a young lady. And I'm so happy, you know what is young lady, you know, she was an actress came down from New York to live in D.C. and pursue her dream and make money at the same time. And we were working at this insurance firm and we were data entry people and she invited me to come to this open call, which I've never heard of, never been through. And I go there and it was like 3000 beautiful people around and I'm like, hold on, I've never seen these from here and I've never seen what the hell was going on. And I go up there and they're like, head shot and resume and I'm like, no, I just got meat, you know? Took a picture, luckily they liked my style. I guess something about what I had on at the time stood out. And they invited me to come on set, man for 5 days, and they didn't even invite her and so it was just a trip to be and then environment as a real open ready to receive and just digest every inkling of energy on that set because it was so brand new to me. You know what I mean? And I didn't have old body. But of course, you know, sitting on a bus with a bunch of cattle extras and stuff. We start talking, and you know you start hearing things. And the information I was getting about the movie just kind of gave me this impulse to scream at Jodie Foster as she was walking in to ask for more money from the president and me thinking, hold on. They don't even have money for schools. If they're taking money away from our children, how are you going to ask for money for outer space stuff.

"Now, I can't say all of them. I'm not trying to be like, you know, this whole thing is bunk. But there is definitely a trend going on here that I noticed while researching this and then I've definitely read about. Now beyond the fact that these people are not real people. Some fans of the influencers strangely feel like they're developing relationships with them. Some of these virtual AI driven influencers are able to quote unquote, you know, talk to their fans. They are talking to their fans. They're talking to their fans more than you would ever get out of a real famous person. You know, unlike being a real, which with real people, they don't have time to do this. But virtual influencers can simultaneously simultaneously be talking to thousands of people at the same time foraging false relationships. And it's happening. And there's something called parasocial relationships a parasocial relationship is simply a one sided relationship where one person expends emotional energy, you know, they're showing interest and time is going by. Meanwhile, the other party or persona is completely unaware of the other ones existence. That's it. That is a real problem. These kinds of relationships are not healthy. And once they go too far and it's not, I wouldn't say it's common, but it happens and it happens to enough people where their lives can get ruined. Once one of these relationships goes too far, a fan can start to become obsessed and then this parasocial relationship can become toxic and then it becomes detrimental to their mental health. You're talking about a relationship with a vocaloid or a virtual influencer. You're not talking about with one that's made just for them. Well, let me broaden a little bit. A parasocial relationship can happen with a person could have one with a sports team or a real famous person, right? You know, like just someone that they worship. A hero of theirs and idol, a music pop star, anybody that they're super into that they're following. They can develop some type of parasocial relationship. I just wanted to clarify you're not talking about a person having a relationship like with a real doll or something, because I don't think it's safe to say a 100% blanket that that's unhealthy. No. That's not even. I'm not staring into that. I'm essentially saying that the concept of having a relationship with something someone or one of these virtual influencers and it isn't a reciprocated relationship, basically in any way, but the complexity here is that it is being reciprocated because you can get reciprocation from these AI driven ones who will write back and talk to you, right? So that's the part that's got me a little scared about this because these relationships, you know, they can't truly give a human being legitimate satisfaction like a real-life interaction can. Well, okay, I mean, depending on somebody's, yeah. I mean, I think there's arguments with that. But the one way, the unrequited part is really important. Yeah, I mean, you could get conversation and you can get some pleasure out of doing this or whatever, but if it's taken too far and that's the key thing here is if it's taken too far and it gets into a parasocial relationship. Right. And you don't know that. I mean, I think that's the really scary part is we saw it with Jodie Foster, right? Like we've seen these examples where individuals don't realize that they're not in a reciprocal relationship. Yeah, I just worry that as we go into the future here and as the technology gets better and like these chat bots get really good, right? Maybe 5 years, maybe ten years from now, they could get to the point where you could have all sorts of deep levels of relationship. That's remembered. You know, I know, you know, the AI might remember this person and continue the conversation as if it's a real human being. The potential harm here, I think, could be pretty bad. I think there's also a lot of potential good, though. A lot. I mean, we see this in some countries that offer virtual pets to elderly individuals. We're seeing more and more individuals who struggle with difficulty interacting socially, having the opportunity to feel some amount of reciprocation and comfort. We're a social species and we're desperate for social interaction and social interaction is healthy. And for people who struggle with loneliness and who simply don't, I mean, it's one thing to say, oh, they're doing this instead of hanging out with other people, but some people struggle to be around others. And I think that this is an opportunity or it can be when done in a healthful way that could actually have a real psychological benefit. So I don't think I would want to completely throw the baby out with the bathwater personally. Yeah, I agree. This is also a pretty much of a natural evolution of what's been happening for decades. And for example, in terms of virtual pop stars, virtual pop stars are very old. You could consider Alvin and the chipmunks, for example. They're not real people. You know, the oven in the chipmunks. What? It's a marketing created entity, right? Or even any cartoon band that we grew up with the archies or the monkeys. Whatever. And then there's other virtual bands that are fronted by people that were studio creations, and you could say that a lot of influencers, actors, actresses, personalities, are manufactured illusions just because they're focused around a person doesn't mean that they're real. They're illusions and people do develop relationships fall in love with the illusion of the character. That's being generated. This just eliminates the meat bag from the equation, and you have somebody that's completely virtual. So I know it can become fundamentally different,.

"This was the year that they lost to the thunder. Yes, I thought it was Kawhi's injury or two. No, this was the thunder in the second round. And it was Tim Duncan's last year and frankly herring. I think they win that thunder series. If pop of its place is crazy as it sounds, if he plays Tim Duncan a little bit less. Wow. Yeah, that's so crazy that my mind immediately went to the corner. 'cause they were also great that year. But they were, I mean, I was so excited for that series, and spurs were kind of beating the brakes off them in that game. And then Kawhi got hurt in the warriors could score so fast. And it was serious was done, yeah. But, man, there's the 2016 spurs. Yeah, that was when they stole it Duncan, Kawhi was fully healthy. That is one of a team lost to history that was incredible. But Harry, I have a comparison for you. When was the last time you seen a Silence of the Lambs? Oh. I've seen a lot of Jodie Foster films in the last year or two, but I haven't seen that one and at least a good 6 or 7 years. I watch signs of the lambs a couple weeks ago and it just it hit me. It hit me. While I was freaking my awards, the parallels between draymond green and Hannibal lecter, okay? First of all, they're both. They're both, they're both geniuses. They both just know everything about everything, right? The way, you know, the way the way that guy can be in his cell just drawing landmarks out of memory, that's draymond's level of intellect, okay? He knows everything you could possibly need to know about NBA defense, all right? That's number one. Number two, they're both elite shit topics, okay? What's the one thing they'll tell you if you're going to see animal? Don't let them get in your head, all right? That's the same with draymond. You can't. You can't let them get in your head. You can't let them get your and we on that. They're just too they both have really obsessive personalities. And draymond. The tear cover that I'm so funny. And draymond is just obsessed. He has a bloodlust from stopping you from scoring the basketball. He is just the effort he gives on every defensive possession is so incredible to watch. There is a gosh, I wish I could remember the play. But one thing I loved about the play in last year was just the desperation it created. And I'll never forget in that warriors Lakers game, there was just one pick and roll, and it was like later in the game and the defense is really matching it up and draymond's in drop coverage. And he just has such because you look at draymond. He's not the fastest guy. He's not the quickest guy. He's not the most athletic. He can't jump the highest he can't run the fastest. But there are just some moments where he's defending a pick and roll. And it's like his body immediately teleports to the exact right position. Like the muscle memory he has on defense where he just knows immediately at the snap of a finger where his body needs to be is just incredible..

Really? Yeah. Well, that's amazing. What I was going to ask you was, did you specifically ask for that relatively smaller part rather than a larger part? I did. Why was that? Because I lived in hell's kitchen in New York at the time. I used to see the pimps along tenth avenue. In the 40s and the fascinating me, I saw all the pimps, you know, and the girls. And Marty wanted me to play was the campaign worker. So that didn't interest me much. And the pimp had only about 5 lines, but it fascinated me because I used to see all the pimps, you know. So I'm Marty said the pimp. He has 5 lines. I said, Marty, let me play to pimp. And the pit was described as an Italian guy stands in the doorway. That was it. Were you able to improvise or how did that work? Improvised the whole scene. The whole thing. Yeah. And the costume, everything. And part of the material that you drew from and improvising as a song. Part of what you drew from though was that you had actually solicited as the wrong word. But sought out a real pimp to shadow the guy, right?.

It's it's a lot more like jodie foster and and actually the only thing about that movie. That that i thought was freaky. Good was the fact that in order for these trans dimensional aliens to to debate. Bring her to their station The the spacecraft had to be in freefall. There was actually a mechanism that dropped a little ball and an economy in a net in the aliens could only connect to her as the spaceship was freely falling. That actually is so deep as in physics. That i was just like. Oh yes i think. They had physics advisors at caltech. Because this is a very special thing about being in free fall that the rest of the universe's curvature can be flat so i thought that was just alma got i. I can't believe they got that right.

Are you know we're here for a good reason. And then it turns out. They had this whole different way of doing linguistics that affected our idea of time. I thought that was wonderful. Because each time and space it's now becoming very apparent are not how we perceive them as humans where we were just too limited. It's kind of like trying to teach you know tried to quantum mechanics to like a a cricket it. It's just not gonna happen. The cricket doesn't have the capability and we're now realizing more and more that in advance civilization might very well experience space time differently we do. And that's that's exciting idea. But difficult to depict and fiction. Because you know. I i can't explain to you what will look. I'm just a little three dimensional creature now known that makes me think that movies are good. Preparation vessels for all of us. Here on earth is because they can try to experiment with time in there. I think of movies like empathy machines.

"A 24 and Dean did Jodie Foster ever worked with Cicely Tyson? She'd never did. She did not work with Cicely Tyson, but had a great deal of admiration for her. Both as Anak Trice, a civil rights icon. And someone who always worked to put women in a better place professionally in show business. She's got a new movie that is coming out, called the Martin Marty on Ian. Which is ah, True story about a man who was held at Guantanamo Bay for 15 years. Without any charges. It's a very interesting story. We talked about the movie. But just so happens that the Friday morning when I talked with Jodie Foster That was when the news had just come out about Cicely Tyson passing away, so I wanted to know if she had had any interaction. Any stories. Any memories about Cicely? Sounder was my favorite film. As a child. I remember seeing it many times and weeping. We didn't have video cassettes then so you just had to go see the movie again. Keep going to see the movie, the movie theater and that movie just really got May. I loved loved that film, and we'll always remember her in that. Just think about how many doors that she opened for women, especially in films and being choosy about rolls. Not just accepting anything that came along. Yeah, I'm really, really happy in a way that actors like Cicely Tyson in some ways that she lived long enough to really see great change and the promise of what could be you know. The movie business has changed so dramatically in the last 100 years on, and I feel like I've been here 100 years, right? So certainly when I was growing up making films I never saw another female face. Sometimes I'd see the lady who played my mom. Whatever that it's just made a bunch of guys. So it Z interesting to see how the film business is changed. Interesting, positive perspective that she has on it. Then even though she passed away, at least she did get to see great advances. And you know, Jody also reminding us there that she's been making movies and she was about four years old, You know, just a little girl and how many changes she must have seen through the years. What if you tell us about this New Syriza's from the writer and director of Black Panther? Yeah, the Ryan Coogler was got so much accolade. For putting together the Black Panther movie several years ago, and he is working on the sequel to that the Black Panther to movie, But yesterday he signed a deal with Disney Plus To develop content for them. And one of those projects will be a Wauconda TV series Will condo Where Black Panther you know the mythical land? Where Black Panther was said not the Northwest suburb in Chicago, although that would make a very interesting television show as well. I think this this would be a story you know who's you know oranges would be And how will condo was developed and you know how it came to be. So if you like Black Panther, I think this is something that you're gonna like. We don't know when it's gonna come out. We don't know who's going to be in it. What characters are going to be revived in it? Just yet, but it definitely is coming, and it's definitely coming to Disney. Plus and after all these years of being slightly bizarre, why now? Would the record label dropped Maryland Manson? What? What happened? Well, Marylin Manson has been accused by his ex girlfriend, Evan Rachel Wood. Of physical abuse of brainwashing manipulation, she says, horrifyingly abusing her during their relationship. She came forward and then other women have come forward. With allegations of violence and sexual abuse as well. And all of that is, you know being investigated there. Marilyn Manson is denying everything, of course. And But in the meantime, his record label Loma This. The recordings Has dropped him from their record label. They say their recent claims are something that they can't put up with. Manson has issued a statement regarding that. Saying these air horrible distractions of my reality and says his intimate relationships have always been entirely consensual with like minded partners, so I'm not sure I want to know anything more. That story Sounds like it's pretty creepy, but apparently also he had has a role in in AMC TV. Syriza's And I'm told that he's also been dropped from that. It's very much like the whole me to movement all over again. Interesting story, by the way, Just speaking of all that we told you that They last week. We told you that they had come to terms for financial settlement for the Harvey Weinstein allegations, and there was just a little story that blip through yesterday. But the actual lawyers in that case made more money than the accuser's, that the lawyers wound up being the big winners in in that case. Yeah, that happens. Then. Finally, Dolly Parton has dropped a couple of invites from Washington, D C in the trash. What's this all about? This was it always seemed all that you know of all of our national treasures, people who have been honored with the Presidential Medal of Freedom, the Dolly Parton. Had never been honored that way. Barack Obama always said that it was a mistake for him to have never done that. And apparently, Donald Trump invited Dolly Parton twice to accept the presidential Medal of Freedom. And in an interview yesterday, she revealed that she turned down the Trump administration twice. Both times, she says, not having to do with politics. She wants to make it clear, said the first time that her husband was ill, and the second time was in the middle of covert 19. And she didn't want to travel during covert 19. She has now said that President Biden has talked to them about receiving the award. But now she doesn't want to accept it because she's afraid it would be misconstrued as a political statement if she accepted it now, after declining it twice, you know, over the past four years, so Somebody give this woman a presidential medal of freedom. I'll do it. Just mail it to work during the mail, thanks to an Amazon prime.

Yeah. But then, after reading 10 pages, he realized that it wasn't any said it's the best script I've ever read 10 Page 10 pages. Well, to be fair.

Stuff To Blow Your Mind
Explaining Occam's Razor
"Today we're going to discuss a problem solving principle that many of you probably heard of and we've we've definitely referenced on the show before and that is autumn's razor that's right. It's it's one of the classics one of the hits of like the skeptical toolkit and I think it's a really one to get into because it's something that is widely known but in different ways and often To whatever extent it actually does have value. It often gets deployed in ways that do not actually make use of its value right like like an actual razor blade. It may be misused from time to time. Yes now. What one specific place that. I know we've talked about it before. Is that is in the context of Carl? Sagan's recommendations for the the tools of skeptical thinking he these out and one of them is autumn's razor. He writes all comes razor this convenient rule of thumb urges us when faced with two hypotheses that explain the data equally well to choose the simpler. Okay now why did we end up talking about this today? We we were in the studio the other day Discussing upcoming episodes. And you said that. Seth had mentioned this our producer Seth Yeah. I was in here and set a nickel Johnson was working on. A crossword puzzle was at the New York. Times he tells us it was the New York Times And he he asked me how to spell. Autumn is in razor and I took a guess at it and I can't I can't remember. I was correct. I was probably wrong but also probably hit one of the multiple acceptable spell things for razor But anyway we started talking about it and I was like. Oh Yeah we we could do that as an episode and so here we are. I'm very glad we picked this because I think one of my personal favorite genres of of critical thinking is is being skeptical about the tools of skepticism. You know is sometimes people who identify skeptics can ca- can I get a little cocky. You know they get a little too sure of themselves about what the reasoning tools they use and it's worth putting those tools to the test. Giving them a closer look. Yeah absolutely now I have to say I definitely remember. The first time I encountered the concept of outcomes raise or at least the first time I encountered it and it on some level stuck with me and that was when viewed the Nineteen ninety-seven film adaptation of Carl Sagan's novel contact the movie. I can't watch without crying. Oh Yeah Yeah Yeah well. Why does it make you cry? Oh God there's no point especially the first part where you know it. Zooms out from the earth and you're hearing the radio signals go back in time and then and then it shows the young. L. E. Airway experimenting with the Ham Radio and her dad's helping her and get so emotional. Yeah Yeah it's it's been a very long I. I haven't seen it since initially came out and in fact the main thing I remember from it is seen in which jodie foster's character. Eleanor Airway has having this conversation with Matthew mcconaughey as character. Who How old was Matthew mcconaughey at this point? I don't even know how old he is. Now is this ageless demon but anyway. Here's this character He's scared Palmer. Joss in the scene in question foster's character brings up autumn's razor in a discussion on the nature of God she. She says well which is ultimately the simpler hypothesis that an all powerful God exists or the human beings made got up in order to feel better about things and then this ultimately comes back around is kind of flipped on her later on film regarding her characters encounter with an extraterrestrial intelligence right. Is it more likely that she really had the experience? She thinks she had with With all these aliens or that. She like hallucinated. Something that would give her emotional closure. Yeah and so. Yeah I think I was in high school at the time so it was. It was interesting concept especially in the context of of atheism verses of faith in a creator deity inserted to suddenly have this tool from the chest. Skeptical thinking just thrown up on the table and you and seemingly used by both sides. Well Yeah I think this is funny. This is a great example because it highlights some of the most common features of all comes razor as it is actually used to like. It's often invoked in a kind of fuzzy way without an objective measure Just kind of invoked to back up your intuitions about the probability of something right but another thing is that this example shows how. It's not always easy to find a way to compare the simplicity of two different propositions like is the existence of God a simple hypothesis or a complicated one that I think that really depends on kind of how you feel about it like like what kind of objective measure can you come up with to evaluate that question right. It's GonNa depend so much on your like your background your culture what you grew up with. And you know how you how you've come to view the possibility of Of God's existence. Is it just kind of the bedrock of your your worldview or is it this thing from the outside that you are contemplating and also how do you view it at like the coherence of the idea? Do you view it as something. That's like That's full of all these little kind of ad hoc accommodations or something that is a holistic coherent Sort of like fact about nature. Yeah you know I it's I I think this is a perfect example. That shows like win. People used the idea volumes razor in a way that is not helpful and doesn't really doesn't really get you any closer to figuring out what's true now if you're if you're still questioning what the concept really means. Don't worry we will get to some. I think some very understandable examples of how it can be a used properly and used improperly. But let's go ahead and just start about the concept itself the the word autumn You know where this comes from. We'll get to the origins of autumn's razor so Oxfam's razor is also known as the principle of parsimony and parsimony means a tendency towards cheapness or frugality. So I like that. It's like the principle of parsimony is like you. You want to be cheap with your with your logic right yeah. I don't need more than two steps of logic between me and the solution. Don't give me one with four or five. And it was named after the Medieval English philosopher William of autumn. Of course William of Arkham So he he lived in the thirteenth and fourteenth centuries from twelve eighty five to either thirteen seven or thirteen forty nine. I've seen different death dates given forum. I've seen different birthdates as well. Eighty seven twelve. Eighty eight looking at That's interesting so he was a prolific scholar. Franciscan friar we'll get more into his ideas in a minute. I you know one thing I've always wondered is where the heck is awesome. I've never heard of that. Well yeah because the word sound has kind of like a remoteness to it. It sounds alien in some ways. Autumn is very much a real place. It is a rural village. In Surrey England. You can look it up online. You can find that the website for the church in Oxfam for example and this area has been occupied since ancient times. It's about a day's ride south west of London and it was the birthplace of the individual who'd come to be known as William Volume now beyond that beyond the fact that he was born here. We don't know a lot about William's life We don't know what his social or family background was or if his native language was French or Middle English. As Paul Vincent Spadea explains in the Cambridge companion to Arkham he was likely given over to the Franciscan order as a young boy. Before the age of fourteen and here Latin would have quickly become his language of not only writing but also just conversation Grey Friars Convent in. London was likely his home convent but later he traveled he visited Avalon he visited Italy and he lived the last two decades of his life in Germany. Now philosophically William was a Nominal List and spayed writes that the two main themes of this for William were the rejection of universals and ontological reduction in these two teams are are not necessarily interconnected like you can you. Could you could believe in one but not the other and vice versa but basically like let's get into what these mate so the first rejection of universals is perhaps best considered and this is very brief and broad Certainly you can find so much written in instead on this topic but basically think of it as a rejection of the tonic idea of the realm of forms. So that idea that all chairs that we might make design and carve a symbol are an attempt to create the perfect chair which doesn't reside in our world but only resides within this realm of forms. So all chairs that we create our like an aspiration for the ideal chair another way. I've thought about it at least as I understood it was. The nominalism is kind of the idea that there is no such thing as a chair. There's only this chair and that chair in this chair over here. There is no chair right like this. This is the kind of the situation gets too. When you you get into the genre classifications of say albums artists or movies. You care a great deal about and someone tries to limit it to a classification and say oh well that's classic rock where that's alternative rock near like. No no no no no. Don't don't try and fit there is there. Is these categories. Do not apply. There is there is only you know whatever. Your band of choice happens to be. There is only tool. There is only primis or whatever right there yeah there. There is only things not category right. Now let's move onto the second theme here. Ontological reduction this is as Britannica defines it quote the metaphysical doctrine that entities of a certain kind are in reality collections or combinations of entities of simpler or more basic kind. I think your classic example here is molecules atoms. Yeah so another example. Here's while our aristotle defined ten categories of objects that might be apprehended by a human mind. These would have been translations vary on on how you wanted to find these but substance quantity quality relative place time attitude condition action and affection. William cut these down to two substance and quality. He's really getting in there. That's the razor. That's what a razor Dutt. Cia slices away. It cuts off the fat and gets down to the meat. Spayed writes quote. Although these two strands of thinking are independent. They are nevertheless often viewed as joint effects of a more fundamental. Concern the principle of parsimony known as Oxfam's razor okay. So we're getting to the razor. Yeah so William. Devoted a lot of energy to arguing against What spade calls the bloated onto logical in inventories of his contemporaries and became well known to his peers for this as such either towards the end of his life or shortly after his death a kind of greatest hits album came out on his thoughts and ideas titled On the Principles of Theology? Now it wasn't actually by William of Arkham but it featured his doctrine as well as verbatim quotes there is no ascribed author either so later generations would often just attribute it to him as well as the notion of outcomes razor however the specific phrase was apparently never actually used by him. He never said autumn in the house. I'M GONNA get the razor out and started carving on some some some some some ideas
This Movie Changed Me
Contact: The Movie That Changed Drew Hammond's Life
"The movies adapted from the science fiction novel by The scientist Carl Sagan and tells the story of L. E. We first meet her as a little girl with her dad watching the stars and fascinated by the idea of life on other your planet's we see her playing with the radio trying to make a connection with people from outside her hometown and that curiosity that she has a little girl will eventually guide her through her work. Could we talk to the moon. Wow Big enough radio. I don't see why not can we talk to Jupiter or or what's one after that. Don't tell me give you in Hula hoops Saturn. Could we talk to Saturday. dad could be talked to mom. I don't think even the biggest radio could reach that far. Yeah people on other planets. I I don't know sparks but I guess I'd say if it is just as it seems like an awful ways to space ellie grows up to be this amazing astronomer who works for this organization that is trying to find aliens on other planets and many people don't take her work seriously other scientists give her credit for her hard work and for her intelligence and her amazing determination in her projects but it's the kind of science that is often equated with faith the kind of science. You can't prove true what I'm I'm doing you promising scientists to be wasting your gifts on this nonsense consider what could potentially be the most important discovery the human race nonsense incense okay. There's four hundred to one. There is intelligent life out there but it's so far away you'll never contacted in your lifetime Carol Disisto. Oh there's nothing out there about noble gases and carbon compounds and you're wasting your time in the meantime. You won't be published. You won't be taken seriously and your career will be over or before. It's begun so my life. That's search is one that takes l. e. directly into the path of Palmer Joss this this kind of spiritual pastor seeker played by Matthew mcconaughey elliara mutually studying all the usual Nabulsi quasars pulsars stuff like that. What are you what are you writing. The Usual Nouns adverbs added to here and there I worked on a project called city search for extraterrestrial intelligence. Wow out there l. E. is played brilliantly by the one and only jodie foster. One of my heroes and the relationship between her and Palmer is so important because it is going to kind of demonstrate and play out for us that divide divide between science and faith science and religion and it becomes the guiding light for the movie. How can you be sure that something really exists when you can't prove it Orig- book. Would you like me to quote you. Ironically the thing that people are the most hungry for meaning is the one thing that science hasn't been able to give them yeah yeah come on. It's like you're saying that science killed God. What if what if science simply revealed that he never existed in the first place the character of Palmer Joss was important for me because he inhabited this religious spiritual seeker identity but he also really understood were Elliott as a scientist came from and that was really important for high school teacher Hammond. Although he related to Ellie you know he had never seen a scientist. I figure like her before someone who would ask these hard questions of everyone around her and even of herself and the work that she did and yet but really really comfortable with the idea of mystery and unanswered questions so I want to hear the story behind when you first saw contact and this is kind of a meditative exercise that we found really useful here on the podcasts which is free to close your eyes so I'm looking at you so I know you're doing close your eyes and then for ten seconds distinct about that first time you saw the movie and then I will look at the clock and I'll interrupt you so what memories came for you then it it was the it was the summer after high school high school graduation. I think it was yeah and and about two weeks before the movie came out my long-term term crush that had a you know I wanna say it was love but it was not for sure. It was just highschool crush but for four years I had you know wanting wanting to be with her. and then towards the end of highschool. She got engaged to her youth pastor well from her church was he he he was like a good seven years older than she is right. Yes right but you know. Jesus was cool with it so I guess it was all part of the plan anyway but so I was I was crushed and I remember like I went to the wedding and and I remember thinking like Oh. Oh you know if if I if I was more of a person of faith if I was going to be somebody that could go to church this would be this could be me love me and I I I was just I was depressed and I felt so alone and and then a couple of my friends like we went to the the movie just because it was a science fiction movie had aliens in it and if you if you go back and look at the trailer it does not know it does not sell thus you knew like Carl. Sagan's work had no idea the kind of dialogue that it just looks like a cool science independence day was going to be it's been fun a fun romp and we watch the movie and and win when it was done my friends I got up and started to walk away and they were like let's get them scream and I was just sitting there bawling and I could not I could not bring myself to leave the theater for like a good ten minutes because it was just such a yeah. It was just such a profound and deeply personal experience that I don't think I've ever had in a movie like that where I felt like this movie spoke to something that I could never even put into words and I didn't know how to talk about it with anybody. I didn't feel like it was okay to talk about and what that what that movie brought up for me what I'm saying. Oh yeah definitely it's one of the things that I love the most about movies and that experience when you see one in the theater is it's you're kind of hit with the impact of the film and then you're processing it. I mean days weeks years later for sure. I went back and saw the movie again in the theater. You know maybe within the next week and finally started to figure out like Oh. This is speaking to this disconnect that I felt for the last you know whatever the the time probably eight years of being a young kid who never had a relationship with church and and was surrounded by very spiritual and religious people and always feeling like an outsider because you know it's funny. I think I had a similar experience to you watching the movie as someone who grew up actually very religious my parents are pastor eventual Christian but he's also a man. He's like a botanist and he always man of science. Yeah I think watching this movie felt in a lot of ways like seeing a lot of his own or inner conflict a lot of the things that we grew up hearing about from him but it was also the best example that I had had seen at the time of my ideal version of faith
