ASP pack their latest episode with stuff that will augment your cognitive abilities to the posthuman state, and likely increase your stress hormones! Paulato discusses an interesting parallel between the circumstances surrounding the 2020 US presidential election and Germany’s Weimar Republic, noting that although election fraud fundamentally undermines America’s democratic republic so does a violent reactionary revolt (and its potentially negative future repercussions) that occurred, and could have been worse, at the Capitol on January 6th, 2020. Alberotle explores Elon Musk’s company, Neuralink, which develops implantable brain-machine interfaces (aka ‘neural lace’), and its connection with a popular social and philosophical movement known as transhumanism. And finally, Steveocrates shares his concerns on his experimentation with a controversial infant sleep training method called the Ferber method, or the “Cry it Out” approach, one that we particularly encourage our listeners to adopt as you listen to our show!
