"weston" Discussed on Wash FM 97.1
"Weston's about how to be a good spirituals fisherman. They're kind of three suggestions that come out of being a good physical fisherman. Now, if you're a fisherman, you're going to say long. That's not all there is to it that simplistic. There's about 10 or 15 principles. Okay, Well, I'm only chosen three. So be nice, too. Okay? I'm not a fisherman, but I've chosen three. Here They are. Number one number one. If you're going to catch fish, you gotta go where the fish are. That makes sense. Gotta go with the fish arm. Can I give you surprise? There are very few fish in church on Sunday morning. Say what? We're here. Yeah, but you already caught right. Many real fish that we see on an average Sunday morning and I'm glad for people who come the don't know. Christ. I think it's exciting. But in an audience such as ours, I guarantee you they're very small percentage. And you look across every church in America. They're very small percentage. Almost minuscule. And if we plan ourselves in the church, and we say we're here, we've got the message. Now y'all come I'm not gonna get a whole lot of fishing done. Second thing I'd like to share with you is if you're going to catch fish, you gotta use good bait. How to use good bait. They're efficient who spend their whole lifetime learning how to make bait attractive to fish, and it's Christians. I maintained. We have to be using the most attractive bait that we've got available to us if we're gonna catch people I said, Well, what is it? Let me tell you what it isn't. Most attractive bait we have is not our church. The most attractive bait we have is not our youth program. The most attractive bait we've got is not our morning services. The most attractive bait we got is not lawns messages. The most attractive bait we've got is not the music. The most attractive bait we got is not any program. We have. The most attractive bait we have is Jesus Christ himself. Jesus Christ himself. For two reasons. Number one people can always find something wrong with all those other Bates. They confined things wrong with our church. They confine things wrong with our youth program. They confined things wrong with our music and wrong with our services, and I guarantee, and they confined things wrong with May You can't find anything wrong with Jesus Christ. Second reason why he needs to be. Our bait is because only Jesus Christ himself. And meet the needs of the human heart. Church programs can't do that. Which programs are nice, but they can't give peace and joy when you're in the middle of heartache. On Lee. Jesus Christ can forgive Sin Church programs can't do that. On Lee Jesus Christ can take a life and renew it and make a person a new creature. Church programs can't do that. Only Jesus Christ. Give peace in the middle of the storm. Church programs can't do that. Curtain. Finally, not only do we have to go with the fish are on offer in the best bait, but third, and finally there has to be a perceived need on the part of the fish. You can have the best bait in the whole world and be right where the fish are, But if they're not hungry, you're not gonna catch any fish. Has to be a perceived need on the part of the fish. In this case, the fish has got to be hungry. Have the same strewn with human beings. We can go with the fish are with the best bait in the world that Lord Jesus himself But if people aren't perceiving a need I'm not interested in fighting. And I have learned that human pride in human self sufficiency is the strongest force in the world. Have you learned that? Human stubbornness is the strongest force in the world. And that people will only be interested in Jesus Christ. When they feel a need for help. They'll only be interested in Jesus Christ. When they feel like they're in over their head. They only be interested in Jesus Christ. When they feel like they've got problems. They cannot figure out and solve in their own self sufficiency and human wisdom. And when that stubbornness has been broken down to a humility They're willing to accept Help. Now, folks, you can't do that. You might be able to go with the fish are and dangle the right bait, but you cannot change a person's heart. You cannot bring a perceived need into the heart of people around you. Only God could do that and God said he can listen What Jesus said John chapter 16, he said. After I leave, I'll send the holy spirit and the Holy Spirit will do something he will the Bible says Convince people Regarding sin that is that they're sinners regarding judgment that is that they're under God's judgment and regarding righteousness, that is that God has offered to give them righteousness to the death of Jesus Christ on their behalf. And the Bible says the spirit of God will convince people of those three things. You can't I can't on Lee God can and he does it in response to prayer. And if God is not convinced somebody of that I don't care what kind of bait you dangle in front of them. They're not going by. Only God can do that. And he does it in response to prayer. So what That means is when it comes to fishing for souls. Good fishing takes good praying. With me. Good fishing takes good praying. Because that's the only way of perceived need ever develops and people's hearts is when God moves on their heart in response to prayer. A few years ago, I was given one of these little blue cards that we gave you when you came in, and I'd like you to take yours out it says 10 most wanted on the front. I'd like to think it's sealed from Christian businessman's for providing these force. He scrounged up 1300 of these and 24 hours. Wasn't that nice of him? And I appreciate that. And thank you. Christian businessman's uses this and I was given one about 15 years ago. The first time I ever got one of these And what they do is they say to you now I want you to think of the 10. People you most want to see. Come to know Christ. And then I want you to list him and then I want you to commit yourself to pray for them. Until they either die physically or God brings him to Christ. One of the other The whole point of this is that good? Fishing Takes what good Brain. Say it again. Good fishing takes what Praying. That's right, because no amount of Bates gonna catch anybody if they don't feel a need and feeling the need comes from prayer. So I took this about 15 years ago, and I made my list of 10. Wrote down number one number two number three before all the way down. I began faithfully praying for those 10 people. I'd like to report to you 15 years later that I've been able to cross off number one on my list. They came to know Christ. I've been able to cross off number two on my list. They came into Christ. I've been able to cross off number three on my list. They came in. Oh, Christ. I've been able to cross off a number of others Wait on my list. Why? Came to know Christ. You know who number one on my list? Woz. My dad. No number two on my list. Woz. My mom. You know what number Three on my list was my brother. All three of them 15 years later came to know Christ. Now when I wrote them down as 12 and three I got to tell you. I didn't think anything look more impossible. And I would ever be able to cross off what 12 and three 15 years later. I have Why Because God is able And God responds to prayer for people's souls. And if you're gonna be a good fisherman After a good friend.

CDC expected to reduce social distancing recommendation for schools based on Massachusetts study
"Expected to switch gears and in a matter of days recommend less physical distancing in schools that switched in person learning. The agency has been considering a study from Massachusetts about this. WBC's Kim Tunnicliffe spoke with one of the authors. The findings of the study suggests that three ft of distancing in classrooms is Justus good as six FT as long as students and staff were wearing masks co author Dr Weston Branch. Women of Beth Israel Deaconess Hospital says researchers compared infection rates between Massachusetts schools that required three FT of distancing and those that required six FT. Here's what they found no statistical difference and no significant difference. Doctor Element says The study shows that kids should not be kept out of school because of the distancing issue. We can bring students and staff at the classroom safely with three FT of distance, and that's a really exciting and important finding, because it's far more feasible for many school district's to bring students back at Three ft than six FT Him Tom, a.

"weston" Discussed on Fake the Nation
"Like that sounds wild to me. Yeah possible of course but that sounds wild to me. I was like how about that conspiracy. That's how it was reported to happen. That's how it was reported right. So i think some of the other things that were sort of like crazy that jumped out at me a mr. The there was a point with bill. Barr where he was sort of resisting. The president and at that time was also resisting the idea that donnie and birthright citizenship in legally dubious pre election executive order which i was like. Wow that was happening at the same time as all of this also. The the my pillow guy makes appearances in the story. Mike lindell the former stock dot com chief executive. Sorry mike lindell's the my pillow guy. Patrick byrne is the overstock dot com guy And he warned a fake. I think again going back to his idea of conspiracy theories being embraced by people who i think pre back in the day wouldn't have normally embraced it like you don't normally think of like ceo's embracing conspiracy theories right. Well we don't. We never knew much about pillow. Ceo's true that's you pillow. Ceo's are their own category of ceo. Anything about the betting industry. So let me get to the heart of this topic. Which is that. I wanted to look at times piece because it's a sort of this like interesting depiction of the republican party in the number of people that like sort of enabled or like stood by or the way they the way they resisted but kind of quietly what was happening with the white house. But there's also people like you mentioned western wop marjorie taylor green congresswoman out of georgia. Who was accused on person and she thinks the parkland massacre was a fake in the california wildfires were caused by space leaders controlled by jews. I go to those meetings. Every saturday. pain fear with your space lasers later today. Meanwhile forty six hundred republicans change their party status in colorado. Six thousand d- defections from the party were counted for north carolina. Ten thousand in pennsylvania five thousand arizona and then. What's weird is it. Some of these people are defecting because of the the party's embrace of trump. Some of these people are are defecting. Because the party's not embracing western feels like is it the best week for the gop. Where is it. Where do you see going. I know that's like a huge question. But you said are republican front. Who may help us. Have some insight on this. Yeah we're in a deep funk. It is not a good time to be a republican. Except that i think there is among the majority of people who are interested in the conservative movement as they call it are doing some real soul searching and when you look at these pieces that are explaining to us in greater detail what was really transpiring in the last few weeks of twenty twenty one of the things that should creep almost anybody out is how close to the seat of american government. The white house. The you know the the oval office how close people got who i believe are categorically unwell and i think republicans ought to be willing to talk about that in admit that right like mike lindell may be rich guy. He's not well you watch these interviews. He's right he's a crazy man sydney pal. She's unwell and that mentally unstable people had. The ear of the president was crappier than i realized it was around christmas. So where do we move from here while i hope again. I gave you those three categories. Early right you've got new. Trump republicans republicans. Who voted for him. But they're ready to move beyond it and then you've got crackpots. There are real live crackpots within the republican party. And i can't believe it's a question as to whether we just call them what they are. They're they're nuts and marjorie taylor grains easy to pick on. I would say you know live in just a couple of miles from her district. Having watched her win both on the first ballot and then a run off that. There's some kind of unique circumstances that contributed to it my hunches. She'll lose her reelection bid so we probably ought not obsess over her. She's a wingnut she's an outlier. The question is can the party you know. Is there a potential for a big tent republican party. Well i mean you know. There's reason to believe that is possible. Hispanics in droves in southern in south florida and on the border in texas came towards the republican party in november of twenty twenty. They probably were turned off by this wacky fraud narrative. But i think there's an argument that the republican party could get its act together and be a more of a working class party than it has been in my lifetime but i so i paint people this picture. Final point of where the republican party is. The republican party is embodied. Our future leaders is embodied by two people in the us. House to not kevin mccarthy. It's not cheney. The two people are matt gaetz. Dan crunch all their your mind. People who those two are will sure. Yeah so from the panhandle. Florida with big poofy hair matt gaetz. Who's one of the pre president. Trump's henchmen and ease you lose cheney picks on him for his sort of excessive wearing of makeup. But this is. He's a he's a fox news heartthrob matt dan crenshaw who is some people wouldn't realize the dichotomy here but i think it's become really clear because actually one of them attacked liz. Cheney one of them crenshaw came to her defense and then dan crenshaw's the guy who had kind of this famous Saturday night live moment. He wears an eye patch because he lost his is is a navy seal and afghanistan and they're both conservative. They're both republicans. They're both in their thirties. But they're on either side of the of the crazy divide okay gates is on the crazy side. Chrishell still conservative. But he's one of these people who didn't object to the electoral college. He defends people like liz. Cheney who may not agree with that the future the republican party now i think can actually be seen in these two millennial republicans. That's so interesting because that that's that's really interesting to me..
Six constitutional amendments are on Florida's 2020 ballot
"Rhetoric from President Trump calling the elections integrity into question, claiming, for instance, that mail in voting is not secure, raises fears about a contested election. But an attorney who represented George W. Bush in the legal battle over Florida's president to recount in 2000 does not foresee problems. This will not be repeated 2000 and second. I don't anticipate any serious problems this year in Florida. And probably in any states. Barry Richard says Florida has made several changes no more hanging chads for one designed to reduce the risk of election disasters. Six proposed amendments to the state Constitution include one that would open Florida's primaries, Amendment three would create a single primary for all candidates of all parties. The top two finishers in that would go on to the general election. Supporters say it would force candidates to appeal to a wider audience. Those include a South Florida businessman Mike Fernandez. Who has put more than a million dollars into the campaign to get Amendment three passed Amendment Four on this year's ballot would require proposed amendments in future years to pass twice in two different elections to become part of the state constitution. But Kate McFall of the Humane Society of the United States who helped get an amendment passed in 2018, that band Greyhound racing in the state. Says it already takes 60% of voters to approve amendments. And that's challenge enough. If amendment forward pass. We have serious concerns that it would make it even more difficult if approved future proposed amendments that get Thesixty Percent in one election would go on the ballot for the next one for the second approval it would need where Florida's news I'm John Mc Weston.
Changes in population of Arizona swings state more left
"This is a special edition of Balance of powers. Look at election 2020. I'm David Weston. Today We look at three critical swing states that could help decide who occupied the Oval Office next January. We start with Arizona once solidly Republican state that is now Maura, Va. Toss up. Arizona has 11 electoral votes and polls show a tight race. As for Vice President, Joe Biden hopes to become the first Democrat to win the Grand Canyon state since Bill Clinton did back in 1996. Or an overview. We spoke to Bloomberg contributor Rick Davis, who ran the 2008 presidential campaign of the late Arizona Senator John McCain. Four years ago in 2016. It was not a swing state, so it's one of those that have moved into the Swing column primarily because it changes both demographically in the state, but also ideologically demographically, I think you know, the increase in Hispanic population have moved it a little bit closer to the Democratic column. Hispanics make up almost a third of the Voting population now and on ideologically in 2016 trump one white suburban voters in Maricopa County, the largest county in the state. What really decides the outcome in states and in 2018, those same suburban voters fled the Republican Party, causing Martha McSally running for Election to the Senate to lose a Republican, so it's going to be an interesting ride there, but it's definitely a swing state this year. So if you say Maricopa County is I understand, you know better than I really determines the state. Largely. It's a really big count and a large portion of the voting populace. What has changed 16 4018 has the Democratic nature of Maricopa County's changes it more hetero genius than it was before is that they've changed their attitude towards things like immigration. Maricopa has been changing for a long time is one of those state or one of those counties. It's the city of Phoenix is in Maricopa County that has grown at an enormous rate. It's been one of the top five fastest growing counties in the United States for the last 15 years and is one of the top five of the largest counties in America. So it is a complex political beast. I would say What is starting to change is the Republican lock in the suburbs. In the past, we've been able to win the state by winning Maricopa. And if we are not able hold onto especially white women suburban voters in Maricopa County. We can't win the election for a perspective on what it takes to win statewide office in Arizona. We spoke to someone who's done it. Former Republican governor, Jan brewer. She admits the state is changing, but she hopes it hangs on to its conservative roots. There's a good chance that it is probably turning a little purple hair in Arizona, which is very distressful US Republicans, but the bottom line is is that we've had a lot of people moving in and out of California and other places coming to the great State of Arizona czar demographics. Have really changed. I think that we have to take that all into consideration were out there.
Columbus Crew names Kelvin Jones as new academy director
"Dave you spoke to Kelvin Jones, the nucleus breast C.. Academy director give us a fifteen seconds cell and then we'll get into the show just talking about from a coaching point of view what's left to get more players at the level of Geoana and a Weston mckennie and what Columbus is doing as a small market to build players that can compete and we've seen from eight and Morris Sebastian Berhalter. In cates as so often talked to him we talked about access as well for coaches of different backgrounds, minorities, women, and just in general trying to get into coaching. So lots change but I think cove hasn't thrown everything off and there's a lot of excitement about what's been put in place over the last few years where it's
New York Times: Trump paid no income taxes in 10 out of 15 years beginning in 2000
"Paid no federal taxes in the past 10 or 15 years. Well, the president The New York Times has been doing its fake story after fake story. I've never seen anything like it, and Bloomberg's David Weston says It may not mean as much politically or for the election. I do think it maybe raises questions about his business acumen. I mean, he's raised his run as a billionaire and said that he's so a student businessman. According to the New York Times report, at least where they went over two decades of his tax returns, it appears that he's losing a lot of money.
Best practices for shooting with a view camera
"Not that I want to take all of you down another trip down memory. Lane. But I wanNA talk a little bit about view cameras which was the camera of my youth talk about Gear Acquisition Syndrome I. Think all of us who were interested in pursuing fine art photography in the middle of the twentieth century automatically turned our attention to view cameras because well, that was what ansel Adams used. That was what Edward Weston us that was what all the great photographers used. Except for cardiac or sawn and some of the Magnum photographers but I think a lot of sort of. Discounted that wing of photography is not really the same thing as fine art photography they were more photo journalists and they needed the speed and flexibility of thirty five millimeter equipment and good for them. But for those of us who are interested in, say, for example, landscape photography. Of you camera was the camera of choice but let's admit that hardly anyone uses a view camera anymore and I think for probably pretty good reason they are incredibly Fussy to use lots of little controls, lots of ways to mess up lots of ways to kick things slightly out of focus you can't use them quickly they demand that you use a tripod and they're difficult to set up and it. CETERA. So there's there's slow. They require precise camera manipulations critical focusing on the ground glass. They force you to slow down that that's really think the issue we live in the age of speed and quickness and multitasking, and all the rest of that view cameras force you to slow down. But you know that can be a virtue. As a matter of fact, there may be lots of virtues to view camera and we be able to borrow some of those virtues and use them with our new Yippee skippy digital tools if we really want to. For example, there's nothing that says you have to shoot at twelve frames per second burst mode you can slowdown. Slowing down gives us the opportunity to look and think and with a view camera. In fact, you don't have a choice you have to slow down and look and think, and I think that can actually lead to better photography. And again to compare that to today's cameras where it's all about burst rates and autofocus and instant posting to your social media firehose. I'm not convinced that all of that leads to photographic virtue. At least not when it comes to. Fine Art photography, which is supposed to be about depth of feeling and understanding and being able to share something. That's a little more significant than the glance of social media which I've talked about before. So I don't want to take more time today. But I. Guess. I would some all of that up by just saying that just because the camera is manufactured to be fast Doesn't mean we have to use it. Fast. So here's a few things that I think. We can borrow today from view camera techniques that might be perfectly applicable to digital cameras and the kind of photography we do today because of the virtues of the way it changes the way we work the way we relate to the things that are before the camera, etc the first and most obvious one. is the dark cloth. When you photograph view camera, the image on the ground glass is relatively dark, and so the only way to really see it well is to use a dark cloth and you pull it over your head and you cover the camera and yourself in this dark cloth, which separates you from the world, not only physically but to some degree. Psychologically certainly visually, and you can look at the world from a very narrow perspective when you use a dark law. Now in truth I'm such a trained view camera photographer that when I bought my first digital cameras in early two thousands, I use them with the dark cloth because it was so difficult to see those little teeny tiny LCD screens on. Those early cameras and they were so dark that in the song I couldn't see them at all. So I just used my view camera dark cloth and I found it at great way to not only see the screen and make sure I was composing correctly and all that kind of stuff but the psychological aspect of putting the dark cloth over my head. was such a transition in my internal chronometers. that a I had a a a switch of psychology from looking at the world to photographing the world that had been trained into me for thirty years with a view camera and I found that was a useful tool even though I was now shooting with a digital
But Is It Real
"I've been working this last week with Lens Work Alumnus Jack Curran because he and I are teaching workshop this weekend as part of the out of Chicago in depth virtual seminars that are happening this weekend and in preparation for that workshop, I've been spending a lot of time working with Jack Looking at his work and in particular looking at a lot of the before and after images, what the camera captured versus what he made in Photoshop Light Room in order to create a little bit of artwork from sometimes a pretty bland camera capture and that has me thinking about photography's tenuous relationship with the truth and what we do that is to say the power of what we can do with software. I I came into this idea about photography's tenuous relationship with truth when I visited. Yosemite for the first time in the early nineteen eighties to attend a workshop. Of course, before I had absorbed everything that ansel Adams did in terms of Yosemite and I. I was so inspired by the Yosemite that he presented his photographs and books that I. Thought this is this is fantastic. Going to be a wonderful opportunity to go see the place for myself. But I have to say that when I arrived in Yosemite what I experienced standing there looking at half dome and El Capitan and a Cetera was not at all what I had seen in ansel Adams photographs and I realize that he had made something in his artwork. That was not real in the sense that if you were standing there next to ansel Adams and looking at what it was that he photographed, and then comparing that to his eventual photographic artwork, you would realize how much difference he had created through the craft of photography and the aesthetic choices that he made when he was processing his film and his prints. And I became aware that there is different kinds of. Photographic truth I guess is the way I would call it. My first reaction was to be a little disappointed because. I thought I was going to see something spectacular that only exists in a photograph and so I kind of felt like had been a little bit hoodwinked. But. The more deeply I thought about this in the subsequent decades the more I've come to realize that there are different kinds of truth and one kind of truth might be what I characterize as the physical truth or maybe more accurately the camera truth. That is to say what the camera sees is one thing and that's one kind of truth. And that's the kind of truth that we really insist on in documentary photography and in evidentiary photography and those kinds of things. But rarely do we see that as part of fine art photography? The great challenge that all of us fine art photographers have is not to merely make a copy of what the world looks like or even to accept what the camera tells us and the film. Tells us that the world looks like. But rather work we're interested in different kind of truth. And generally speaking I use in my own way of thinking anyway, the term emotional peak that that's what we're looking for is some kind of emotional peak. We don't want to have every day life presented to us because we can see that for ourselves every single day, what we is something that's a more extraordinary experience we want an emotional peak. So we want think of ansel Adams in Yosemite. Again, we want that high contrast, absolutely spectacular cloud moment of unique and wonderful weather with everything sort of. Dolled up for the artwork. Of course, there are photographers who want just exactly the opposite of that. Think of Lee freelander and Louis Baltin some of that end of the scale of fine art photography but in terms of the more publicly acceptable. Ansel. Adams Edward Weston, those kind of people. That kind of photography is more geared towards some sort of emotional peak. And generally speaking that's achieved by. Pushing everything a little harder than it really is. When the camera captures it that is to say, it's generally we're gonNA push the contrast a little bit we're going to. Increase the. Vibrancy of the collars so that they're more read those fall leaves than they really appear in real life. So it's kind of a hyper reality if you will. And the purpose of that kind of hyper reality. Is I think to. Prompt in us, an emotional response that. Probably. Well. Biologists and physicians and whatnot could explain this better. But I think it has something to do with the release of endorphins and all those feel good hormones that we have in our human system that give us a little jolt of excitement and hyper reality in terms of experiencing

As you suggest and Major League Baseball Pitcher Brandon McCarthy. He told the PITCHES WITH LOSE. Four to five miles. An hour of their fastball. Just because of that. Lack of birds that lack of kind of that next level that's provided by friends. I always thought home fans but the love that you're saying it's the opposing fans that motivate you mentally if you're going to talk about how to counter the lack of fans and how that might impact you again. It's really within the players themselves. You have to really depend on your teammates. The coaches to to you know give you that motivation as well and you have to find yourself to find the self motivation. I mean for me. I'm a person it doesn't matter Sanz.

Since the moment I realized and opened up my eyes and started reading a lot of different things. You know and stronger me you know so are you like. Are you going to be doing any like any videos like my movies and stuff? Tv shows are like. Are you like into like acting and stuff too or he is going to use it and stuff but Right now where I live. There's not much acting going on so I would probably want to get into some of that but just the opportunity hasn't came up to happen. I mean I'm like to film and I like to News film scoring and stuff like that and get people hit me up on that. I have a project I hit up on that the Wanted to want to pay me to do some Sound effects and sound and film scoring to it but we'll see how it goes and see if they actually follow through because a lot of people are a lot of talk and I'm about action some about taking action and doing what I can do. You know me too but Is that is that we want to talk about today? Is that it. That's that's a good. That's a good thing. Leave off with You know it was great being on your show Jordan. Thank you for having me. You are so welcome. Where can people fall you on social media? Just look me up. Western Salinas That's W. E. S. T. O. N. S. I M. O. N. I S. I have music page. There is You can follow me on there. You're listening in there I also have my you know personal profile You could send me a friend request. I might take your friend request. Don't don't get mad if I don't because I mean I do get a lot of people. Hit me up ahead of time where I had people from all over the world sending me friend requests every time we have a fire disaster because as a for a while in firefighter for a long time I have like content out there about wildland firefighting and people start sending me friend requests. I mean one one night I had like probably like five hundred in one night one time. So you know Because people just send me a friend requests over fire disasters you know 'cause the habit content out there and they you know they tell me. Oh thank you for this content you know but And then bill people will disagree on that content because you know what I have is not exactly what they they think is you know. And they don't you don't see a lot of Of the stuff that's going on first so they'll sit there and to disagree with it and that's that's usually what typical people do is still disagree on something that they don't have experience with. And what what do you think of the The California fires and all that I want to thank of the California fires are man driven and There's a lot of Unmanaged forest out there. That could be That could help if they decided to manage more around the big cities and get people to stop. Stop having overgrown vegetation and fuel loads around their house. That's that's a lot of the problems I mean there are is Seattle think of the Santa Ana winds says do playing factor but The fuel load around your house and around civilization should be managed better. And if you can't manage that and you sit here and you know have a disaster after disaster than you're going to just continue to fail and I think that a lot of that is happening because of that and You can yeah and some people try to say it's global warming but then you sit here and you look at things and you go well not necessarily could be global warming global warming could change it completely in a different way. You know it's it's us. Humans trying to play God way and have our civilization and a place that you know. is not healthy for a living for people in the first place because they have too much vegetation around their place. I mean that stuff is good to have you know. Yes we trees we need. We need to have healthy trees. They think about the trees in the way they grow if you just let them grow and not have any healthy. You know Management to it. It's just going to be all sticks growing up if you look at a forest that's unhealthy. You're going to see a bunch of trees together that you can't see through and they're going to be really fan and small but if you get to a healthy forest where trees are big and round and tall And support theirselves. They're going to have at least a fourteen foot's band between each other. They're touching each other you know so there's a lot of there's a lot of factor in And that part but you know you could sit here and talk about managing forests saw long and and how it would work better for free. You know the forest fires but not always to not not always is. Is that the factory. You know. You've got to put a lot about Topography and The weather you know a lot of per topography and weather could play a lot of factor. And what these forest fires are doing so I mean a healthy forest. That's Manish can always help manage the force a better for fire fires in its place and you know. Prevent less fires but not. Is it going to stop every fire? So a managed forest is a better choice than an unmanaged forest and actually puts out more oxygen. If you think about it because the trees are bigger out more. They put out more oxygen because they're bigger and small. These smaller trees just make more fuel loads for the fire and they feed the fire so You know and I. I'm not the Expert I am a fire expert but I am not all always right on everything I talk about because you know Things could change tomorrow and everyone has their own opinion and everyone thinks that they're right and you know I'm just saying it would be a better choice to have managed forests versus unmanaged forests.

She was structurally in a system where alternately she got to prove her worth in front of juries right in so what she would like the old boys had to deal with and so I recognize like coming from a business background. The what she's been able to do in law might be more. It's not like there aren't the same. Yeah drawn lines but was she was able to demonstrate her. Mid Twenties and indoor thirties is I can convince the jury better than the old white dude's better than the middle aged white women better than anybody. And therefore you're going to respect me and you know and so she's like one of the most lauded criminal prosecutors in the south but she took this hard headed approach like. I don't want to be seen as an outlier. I don't WanNa be seen as unusual. I just want to be seen as a good attorney and in that industry like you go perform and nobody can deny juries believe you well. I I actually think that is I and I realized you have one minute to tell the story of your sisters rise to success. So it's obviously going to be summarized but I think a lot of women in a variety of of professions where they are up against the same sort of situations come into it and they're like I'm not going to be perceived this I'm GonNa be. I mean that's what we are. We're doing that is stupid. Stand up this way and I'm going to build an and it is still not that easy stuff like you're not winning them all over and it isn't Ms Mazel and you know it's just so much more complicated than that and you do well.

Momentum and momentum begets money in politics and money in politics guy it plays way to been against it. Dozens United Citizens United is One of the fundamental disasters of our political landscape. GonNa say yes. Yes so much more complicated really. Can you tell them real quick listening? I listen to your one of your tax money episode yesterday and can you tell them real quick. The the one eighty of Mitch McConnell which I think. A lot of people don't realize that it's so fascinating. It is shocking that we go through this in the sixth episode of this money politics podcasts. At that I've done. I went back and found these clips of Mitch. Mcconnell heard it. I'd always heard rumors that early in his career. Mitch McConnell was actually supportive of campaign finance reform to the extent. He supports things that you basically. Won't he supported things in one thousand nine hundred seven my birth year by the way that you won't even really find Democrats supporting like the most liberal reformers? Don't even support things as dramatic as McConnell completely. Getting rid of packs all types of packs. Forget superpex all types of packs in the dark money world. A lot of people don't realize almost all dark money it comes in the form of an abuse of the irs code the five. Oh one section right. We're all familiar five. Once he threes you pay attention to politics. You familiar with five. Oh One C. Four will irs code. Says PRETTY SIMPLY THAT? You can be a nonprofit five once before but you cannot let your primary activity politics all that like nothing is bastardized in politics like that. Line of IRS code because they pop up all over the place while the key difference in any campaign account and You know what happens in a five four? You have to disclose money. All money is transparent in a real campaign account. We've agreed on that concept hundred years but if it's a five hundred eighty four. That's where Dr Money happens. Because nonprofits don't have to disclose their donors. Were back in the day Mitch. Mcconnell war Democrats out because he thought back then Democrats benefited from these five hours and he would rant about how it should all be fixed and there should be a constitutional amendment. Didn't they say he went? As far as to say there should be constitutional amendment to prevent really all of the outside money that we see coming in independent expenditures for example which are protected by the Constitution. And you play tape of this on your podcast. And then here we are in twenty twenty and the man is so unbelievable. I don't know how long it's been maybe ten years. He's been so pro citizens united and pro dark money. It's outrageous the turn that he made. I mean it is like a flip flop of the ages and this is not a real funny Senate so make it funnier but the saddest part of citizens united is this the jurisprudence of citizens united is in no way no way honored today and what I mean by that. Is that Antony Scalia. The late justice who actually gave the majority opinion he was he was explaining why people should be able to put unlimited money in politics. Okay fine. That's his opinion but he also and that was the majority opinion but he also made very clear that money like voters deserve to know where it was coming from. It was part of the citizens united opinion that there should be disclosure ironically because Washington really on both sides. Now there's been some resistance to fixing the laws to citizens united on. Its face is bad. Enough but point here is citizens. United IF If it was enacted in the spirit of the Supreme Court would not be nearly as bad as it is that we have yes. Yes you know and I think again it's interesting if you're were you shocked at Bloomberg's millions. What does the campaign finance issue because we know where the money came from but like you know when he was in New York City by the way he did not partake in New York City Campaign Finance Program? Which is fantastic about you know a a model for the nation. We should have it in the nation but he did not participate because it's not mandatory. So he was able to just like wall up these other. Were you surprised as millions didn't let them make him win. I mean well I mean I feel like again in my little bubble soon as I entered everyone I know was just like. Are you like a joke of the joke but also the Guy Right actually? That's the one good thing I could say right now. Is that the billions and billions in just throwing it all over the place and making ridiculous Just ongoing media things at all. It hits as well as a truce at all. It hits as Western Samoa your way in American Samoa you as out there like if there were aspects of Super Tuesday that your friends thought were disheartening. I think it's somewhat heartening to see that. I think the American public pays more attention to what's going on. Who's trying to buy what in American politics and they have like? We were beginning to talk a lot about digital natives. Thinks though if if he had no one if Biden handle one South Carolina Bloomberg would have had a better turnout on super. Here's the best theory. The Best Theory of all is the the Bloomberg debate the Great Bloomberg debate. That will go down in. History is and what a terrible feeling to know that people got exposed to you and then didn't like you. They liked the idea of Bloomberg within regular people like in my home. State of Tennessee came through my hometown. Chattanooga weeks ago but people like him and then he spins hundreds of millions of dollars and does the debate in. Nobody likes him any. There's like the Netflix show. Love is blind we were in like our separate pods with Bloomberg commercials and then we meet and we're like. Oh no this will not work. Work Theory is that I had already forgotten this but nate silver pointed out yesterday that if Marissa had not released a poll right before that Nevada dumpster fire debate that Bloomberg did where he was. Just the weird Blair Elizabeth like super visceral at him. Absolutely Marras the day at the absolute buzzer came to the poll that Qualified Bloomberg so if Bloomberg if people had not gotten to know Bloomberg and therefore not like Bloomberg. He may very well have gone on. The whole race could look differently. If it weren't for marriage dropping this poll at the Buzzer the qualify Bloomberg. The debate unraveled his campaign. Yeah I mean it's you know who knows I want to say though. You mentioned nate silver and I know we have to stop over still not only sixteen over. I have found myself like seeing stuff by. I'm not trying to throw him under the bus. He's he's Great. But Him and nate. Cohn and all anyone named nate and the annuals. I'll just also throw them a perfect. I don't WanNA listen. I don't want to hear about polls I've become extremely anti-poll in my ten years. And I it's I think it's it's a reaction to twenty sixteen and I hate people talking to me about pathways. This is not about pathways. This is about. Who Do you think is going to be the best fucking president? That's what this is about. Let's vote our conscience. I say that and look I don't Know What Elizabeth Warren GonNa do. You know what I mean. She may draw. She may stay in the race. I don't know but like to me I I I. This entire process was meant to disenfranchise me. And I get that because our vote in York doesn't matter but it an an an effectively has talked about Biden as just he's the nominee. Now we've disenfranchised a third of the. How many two thirds of the population and that makes us fucking dicks and talking about pathways all that stuff. You're just disenfranchising people in it. It's it's voter suppression and I don't like it. I actually I think I I think we gotta get away with the no more pundits. Comedians COMEDIANS register assists senior. Strategists are real problem right now but I just feel like there is such a you know. It's sort of like the twitter of television people. Don't even list. They're not even listening on him listening. Let's just hear what my favorite pundit has to say not so it's like you're being guided by editorial I mean yes pieces and I can't pieces gotta be everyone's trying to make this decision for US rather than us us having a pure relationship. Oh what happened Elizabeth? Warren dropped out. No I just got the control. Room is is breaking my heart Franchise heartened this heart. Oh my God I.

"Yeah his basically name here right now. I feel like that's what's happening is the guys can. I just pat myself on the back for like wbz autographed sports. But I but I I WANNA set low. You're absolutely right that this is incredible. Bounceback I also think Bernie is not someone who to take anything lying down rate so I I don't think He's just in his fans are deaf first of all the minority of his fans that want to punch me in the face at all times on the. They're tough. I embrace them. You know as as people but they are. So there's no time for a thirty second Bernie Sanders Story. Yes I mean I. I'm urge because the context is my dad served in Congress for Sixteen Years Bernie served in the House before the Senate Zach Zach the name and What a name right all right folks ridiculous and my dad was too gleeful southern Republican who had friends with friends with everybody Sheila jackson-lee was his buddy and he hugged been he was It's new everybody kind of politics. Aside friends with everybody. And He'd always try to crack the Bernie Code and he said of all the people ever served with hardest guide. Ever have a conversation with so. I'm talking to a friend of mine. Yesterday's in reform community a named his daughter after a very famous Vermont a political activist a game and he sees Bernie at an event a couple of years ago in Bernie sitting on a bench. No Phone no distraction. No magazine just sitting on a bench by himself an event and so my friend goes up to him and says Hey Bernie I just wanted you to know My daughter is named after this woman. Who is a really famous Vermont activist in by the way she passed away just a couple of weeks ago. I thought you'd like to know that. And he said Bernie looked up and goes yeah she was a real pain in the ASS. That was their whole cover. Can you imagine that interaction surprising i? It's on brand. It's exactly I mean the Just He just indulges curmudgeon. Nece in in the most beautiful away curmudgeon. It's like the aged hippie rightly do want this sort of side by side. I I've been dreaming of the side by side sort of ad for I guess it would be pro Bernie where you see Biden step out of you know a luxury Bentley Limo. Or what you and Bernie roll out of a Rv or a VW something. Yeah I feel like they are dual opposites like in the way the ultimate opposites in every single way. Yeah way they put them on stage during the debates. Even I feel like is specific. Yeah I also WANNA look so. So wasn't you think it's you just think it's over?.

"Of moderate. But they were worried that she was a woman who couldn't be ov totally great. I think that's what happened to the idea that Elizabeth Warren was siphoning off votes from Bernie. I just don't think that that holds water. I think it's just like in our heads because she is a progressive but she also said so. Many times cheerful capitalist. I'm a cheerful capitalist. So she's really she really set our self aside from from burning in that way in a way the Bernie never has said anything like that to assuage people who who worry about the socialist. Tendencies of a Bernie. No they just ray. He's just anti-establishment which I love. Yeah not lot. And he's fantastic in many ways. I'm I'm yes. But the strategic thing right. This is all about the strategic. I mean the way I just always think about. It was like Oh yeah. We're not looking for a relationship. We're looking for a rebound relationship like we're just looking for the next person that can make us forget about the ex boyfriend that we hate all. We're looking for rebound person. Yeah that's just an edge and so everyone is. They're not picking their best choice. They're like who? Yeah whose good enough hang out yesterday and the good betting money is in these are from like I was talking to a woman who for forty years has been a staple on Capitol Hill and. She thinks the good betting money is that Elizabeth. Warren is Biden's vice presidential pitch or like. How do you see to really do that? I would feel twelve thousand times better if you picked a really solid person like Elizabeth Warren. I mean because he is. The talk is at an age where his running mate really matters right. Oh.

"And I I mean I have to say. I was personally attacked for like four days leading up to Super Tuesday because I po PO. Something like Oh and phone banking for warrant. If you're really good about it and then it would just be like your handing nomination to the corporatised abiding campaign you know and I was like what first of all ninety six percent of the country has yet to vote. Why are you telling I mean why? Have we already decided what's happening here? Yeah why have we already decided what's happening here? And I think what happens is beyond the the pressure cooker of New Hampshire and Iowa that creates completely unrepresentative narratives of the election. We just decided it was a Bernie Biden and we decided Bloomberg was super valuable and we made these decisions in when there was there was a real a candidate in the midst. She didn't get any airtime right. And that's what happened to me. That's what happens. It's not the people were not interested. And I'll tell you what happened when I was phone banking. This was really interesting. The idea that all of worn supporters are Bernie. Supporters is not true just remind completely non scientific research when I was foam banking. I'd be like who are your top choices. How you who you GonNa vote for and they would be in some of them would just be like Elizabeth all the way whatever and we need to continue this conversation but the people who are like Biden Biden Bloomberg. I guess they were not excited. By the way about Biden and Bloomberg they were just thinking who's going to win and I would say. What are your thoughts Elizabeth? Warren they're like honestly I think she's fantastic. So the thing is this. I think Elizabeth Warren was the second choice to obscene numbers.

Today guys very excited over the very first time to the show. This gentleman comes so highly recommended. I just finished a listening to one of the episodes of swamp stories. That's his podcast and it was riveting fantastic. It was about dark money which is a subject at both Republicans and Democrats alike want to obliterate so like I said he's the host of swamp stories. He's a senior political. Strategist at issue. One you guys. Hey Weston thanks for having me I feel not nearly funny enough and underqualified we your ear maybe our first senior political strategist at a place. So you you're doing rural well you've had like Assistant strategist a strategy in reality. I fought a long battle. That was not even my own over the senior part of that title. There were some extremely well respected women in the reform community. Who saw me coming along now? My political life began as a kid so I can claim status was in a desert. I almost got I was I came. A percentage point away from beating incumbent Congressman Twenty seven Tennessee. That's kind of what I'm known for like. I almost did something you Buddha judge before I was I was really like almost the Republican version of ABC. Because we literally and I was like there was just a conversation the office about senior star and I was like no no no I. I can't I don't care. Don't give me that. I don't want that. And because they don't care and I was like. Oh man like I want no part of that. Best Way to get that title to say you. Don't you don't ask where? What is the reverse psychology also? A true leader doesn't understand their Palo. The voice that you're hearing talking about power is my gosh. You guys you know. She's what am I good friends. She's so funny she fucking kills in. Almost I want to just say every fucking situation. Yeah that's me. Every time situation. I hated I'm sorry. Comedian and host of the NPR. Show asked me another. She's a writer and she's just as so many fucking that she is a moth storyteller. She does so many things you know. Fear Eisenberg she. You've been awhile again. Basement to above ground customer. So you we were in a basement. Oh I guess. We're on ground every comedy club. I just assume we're entering a basement because it's that feeling of like yeah. Yeah Yeah it's limited oxygen either way all right. Let us get into topic number one okay. So Biden one big on Tuesday taking Alabama Arkansas Maine Massachusetts Minnesota North Carolina Oklahoma Texas Tennessee and Virginia Bernie One it looks like California Colorado Utah and Vermont Bloomberg One American Samoa and then he dropped out of the race and endorsed Biden. Elizabeth Warren ended up with about forty delegates and is As of this taping. Guess she's still hanging in there. She had a reassessment day yesterday. I don't know what that means SPA. She had a Sunday and she deserves it. So okay so just out the gate. Would you think of the results? Well I GUESS. Disheartening seems to be a word that you people are using a lot. Actually I think every article I read. Use The word disheartening. Even quotes from people coming in they were disheartening disheartened Many of the pundits said the word disheartened. Yeah I feel like that really had disheartened disheartening. About what about the result about Biden making this comeback? I feel like it's actually a relatable story to people almost anywhere in the political case so you saw sort of like a hometown boy makes good or has been terrible at this herbal it running for president. A lot of people don't realize that this is third time running for President in South Carolina was the first time ever WANNA state. Yeah never done it and then all of a sudden on Super Tuesday blows it out at a time. Where Yeah. It's just it's surprising. He reminds a lot of us of our GRANDPA. Who you know Joe Biden of really having lost an edge mentally. But you you change your personality. He's he's not like spry Joe Biden and he just dominated like all across the board. And I think there's something we can all see water shows in the process. Well I don't think it's all that surprising I think what's different is to learn a lesson about how we the the way the media covers these things we obsess over. What's right in front of us and everything's about Iowa and everything's about New Hampshire and these are pressure cookers that aren't representative of the whole country. Yeah very small minority populations and we stare at him for so long that we convince ourselves. Joe Biden's no good. When in fact Joe Biden getting a fine? He had a thirty point lead in South Carolina for two years from before even knew he. Was you know it had decided he was gonNA run 'til primary disheartened thing? I think comes from from my point of view in many other people that I know specially in the little bubble I live in New York City. Is that it all became about Biden and then Bernie and the women just you know I mean I again because we all know that. I'M A warn Warren person and.

"weston" Discussed on When We Talk About Animals
"Welcome to when we talk about animals a yale university podcast devoted added to exploring the big questions animals raised about what it means to be human. I'm lindsay stern and i'm viveka morris in his paper. A new kuzma janie the polish writer stanislaw lamb asked how it can be possible that from the vast cosmos most likely filled with intelligent beings other than ourselves. We have so far are heard nothing. The problem is more commonly known as the fermi paradox given the high probability that other intelligent lifeforms exist elsewhere in the universe. Why does does it seem that none of them has ever tried to contact us. Fourteen years later lamb published a fictional response to the paradox in the novel called his master's astor's voice. Lemmy imagines radio astronomers intercept what appears to be just such a message and neutrino signal from a distant constellation. The fermi paradox fox has been solved but it is here that the problems begin governments and scientific factions scrambled to control privatize and even weaponized the signal. No one manages manages to decode it. It's not even clear by the books end that the signal represents a message at all in his blazingly original paper radio astronomy as epistemology demolished our guest philosopher anthony weston formulates a similarly irreverend response to the fermi paradox what we take to be the silence of the a universe he suggests may teach us more about ourselves and the challenges of receptivity to non human minds in general then about the prevalence of other life suppose he writes for the sake of argument that some extraterrestrial intelligence briefly scans are portion of their sky in search of messages. Could they recognize our tv transmissions for them. Just one fluctuating electromagnetic impulse among billions as a product of intelligent life. A tv signal is certainly not constructed to be easily decoded by anyone else. We cannot assume western continues that the e._d._i.'s are so unlucky as to have thought thought of television the reason the universe appears to offer no evidence of extraterrestrial intelligence or a t._i. Weston suggests may be that we are paying the wrong kind of attention in his books. He invites us to imagine the possibility that other forms of intelligence quote do manifest themselves constantly and directly in ways that we simply simply do not expect and are not prepared to welcome or even notice for evidence of this blindness he continues we need look no further than our poor track record with non human terrestrial intelligences the dolphins whales and chimps right here among us with whom we have such a poor record of communicating. If we have such trouble acknowledging them he asks when we have lived with them since time out of mind. How can we even begin to say what it will take to recognize a truly alien intelligence or life form possibly we would miss it even if we were face to face with it and even if it was going to extraordinary lengths to try to reach us dr anthony weston is professor of philosophy and environmental studies at elon university university north carolina where he teaches ethics environmental studies and of course on millennial imagination he is the author of thirteen books including how utter reimagined the world and back to earth as well as dozens of articles on ethics critical thinking education and contemporary culture at elon western has won the university's premier awards for both teaching and scholarship. He is also a founding member of heart smell eco-village north carolina an experiment in self sufficient sustainable living. We are thrilled to have him here with us today. Dr anthony western welcome to when we talk about animals. Thank you great to be talking and you guys so you teach a class on the fermi paradox and by the end every student has to offer their own solution to it as far as i understand. Can you just walk us through the paradox and why you find it took compelling so again the the classic stories firming himself was a vicious kind of a polymath and not two ways at lunch with some colleagues wednesday and they were talking about the likelihood of intelligent life elsewhere and all of a sudden <unk> where are they and that's a paradox but a little bit more in detail so if you start with the idea that you said in your introduction that it seems pretty likely that the other life and intelligent life out there considering well in tax for me. This story originates from the fifties early. The late forties when we didn't even know that were planets around any other star that was just conjecture but now we know that just about that every star has planets and there a couple of hundred billion of them just in our galaxy and their multiple hundreds of billions of galaxies so even the clear that the preconditions of life are rare. Maybe they're even very rare but if you have a hundred billion chances probably there's going to be live somewhere somewhere else. So that seems like a reasonable hypothesis is argued the then you'd think if there were life somewhere on some of it since the universe is fourteen fourteen billion years old <hes> some of it would be advanced enough to be able to travel and make contact and if they were you'd think that we would have noticed so so since we don't seem to have noticed that conclusion as we got a problem that we have to really conclude that there there isn't other intelligent life out there or that ah somehow <hes> we shouldn't expect to be able to perceive them worse. Something's wrong with our way of perceiving so something's you gotta give somewhere in that a little more detail. That's the paradox and how would you articulate your solution my own solution well. Let me start with you mentioned the class class so we do a variety of things i could teach with astronomer this class. We do a variety of things there but we one of the things we do. I read a book called whereas everybody the fermi story and book is a collection of fifty possible. Answers is he's really doing is teaching basic astronomy astrology but that's the way he's doing it so anyway we turn apple's own answers and then the students do their own answers so it's very interesting my answer though is really i think why why did you send to the kinds of things that you're interested in your podcast. Which is my answer is kind of to look at the people must usually considered the least questionable assumption behind us which is in other intelligence present or trying to contact us that we would of course notice and you look around. It seems like that's clearly not case because well really forgot trouble enough. Noticing each other's intelligence right has the time or communicating or for that matter even our own sometimes but that's just among among families but let's say other human beings history of human contact with other quite different civilizations <hes> or here's the kicker for this podcast series other animals in general abysmal in your introduction. You said something in but a poor track record but it's not even a poor track record. It's disastrous the human record of recognizing particularly officially recognizing any kind of intelligence expressively communication from other animals especially ones that are a little bit farther relief from us in evolutionary terms is just is just awful so you know for one thing one more story is to start at home sugar how to communicate with or be open to the expressive -ness of other creatures right here on this planet is all i mean i'm not saying we should stop doing the searching for aliens. We should should do that too but you know the the challenge for me september on awareness and alertness to a world that's already profoundly communicative breath. It's much bigger than just a question of some astronomers searching radio spectrum australians. This is a much bigger thing much richer and more promising and right next to us. That's really the moral stories from me. And how do you define intelligence when you're speaking both both animals or extraterrestrial terrestial life in this case of course controversial topic even among humans totally and and that's kind of the point. It seems to me that almost all the concepts that we try to. I think we're thinking about elliott with thinks it's so useful about thinking about aliens is all the concepts lose grip on them but really that story is. We don't have to start with even about each other. Let alone other creatures so intelligence while you know there was a time when intelligence was supposedly measured by certain kinds of tests <hes> or certain kinds of problem solving even that's now sort of fractured into whole variety of ways of thinking dot intelligence so that kind of standard in psychology is seven or eight kinds of intelligence emotional new miracle but even at in you know in test-taking context and kind of self proving context proof you know are you intelligent are so well okay so one example would be. I i listened recently to the number of your podcast one of them about octopus and it seems like people <hes> a really impressed by certain things that i always want to say occupy but octopus guy said so okay and professor guttering smith said <hes> so people are very impressed by the fact that octopus can escape from cages under certain conditions. It's england probably humans like through the drainpipe so they're very good at getting out of traps <hes> so that seemed to kind of impress people but <hes> i suppose that's the kind of intelligence but it might be quite marginal to the animal is actually mostly doing more about right so it proves something. I suppose. We probably shouldn't be at that impressive but we should correspondingly. We ought to be a lot more interested in what is central to the animal's life inexpressive impressiveness. We might call intelligence so we might need to learn to take seriously something other than escape capacity right it's intelligence but not many that central and even so but i think a lot of terms are like that in the language itself and communication even all these notions are profoundly anthropomorphized in in ways that we you know again thinking about aliens and correspondingly other uh-huh none other than human life forms really helps us to think of reminds us so i'm basically dodging question. I don't think intelligence thinkable notion and i don't i think the way to work on this problem or issue is to try to figure out criteria for intelligence. I think much broader kind of openness and expectation dictation of mystery or you know things that we don't anticipate <hes> what is going on with these creatures rather than do. They need some standards. We have even if they're broader water more inclusive than they used to be an. I still find that a suspicious way of proceeding. That's very interesting. I <hes> recently read a book by david abrahams who knows a philosopher and thinker. He resonates with you as well called the spell of the centrist in which he discusses among other things how language can have a distancing distancing effect on our ability to perceive other life forms for what they are and i think that that's really demonstrated by what you were just talking about the need to define intelligence in a way inhibits us from actually being able to see and appreciate it because any any definition we come up with is going to be woefully insufficient to encompass breath of life. You need to talk to david <unk>. That would be go back. Go back a long way so one of the two to in his terms for a second so one of my things is even the most basic concepts we have for thinking about animals and aliens really lose their grip so this notion communication so communication which tends to get reduced to language and language to a certain kind of familiar syntax and semantics the antics type of thing which runs through a lot of animal experimentation as you know in general abram says well you know a broader. Maybe more useful and certainly more. I guess you could say receptive or even civil category. Instead of communication might be communion so <hes> so that's an that's just something so if we think of ourselves as because communion is not necessarily sesotho conveyance of proposition information or some canal in long to that but his alert aware being together somewhere somewhere moving together.
