A Brief History of the Study of Consciousness

Stuart Hameroff explains the Orchestrated Objective Reduction (Orch-OR) theory of quantum consciousness in microtubules. He presents data in support of three hypotheses:

1. Consciousness is a process in the structure of the universe, connected to the brain via quantum computations in microtubules ('Orch OR')

2. OR-based primitive feelings present in the universe may have prompted the origin of life and driven its evolution... to 'feel good'

3. Resonating brain microtubules with transcranial ultrasound (TUS) can safely and painlessly improve mood, and offer promise for Alzheimer's disease, traumatic brain injury and other disorders

Why Climate Change is Bullshit

In 12 minutes.

Stefan Molyneux explains how all the predictions and assumptions climate "scientists" have made over the past 30 years regarding things like feedbacks, atmospheric hotspots, oceanic heating, and a whole plethora of other aspects of the Earth's climate have all been dead wrong. And yet they still sell the disaster even after being wrong time after time, because this is all about money. This is all about funding, grants, and tenure. These "scientists" have nice jobs, and they want to keep those jobs, and the only way to stay employed is to ignore reality and sell a catastrophe that doesn't exist.
