It’s enthusiasm time again. Let me know what you think via twitter at @JamieSmartCom, on my Facebook page, or on my blog here.
1. A quote I’m reflecting on
While I am unabashedly “spiritual” in my outlook on life, I often find myself resonating deeply with the work of renowned atheists such as Sam Harris, Lawrence Krauss, Daniel Dennett and Dickie Dawkins. Here’s Dennett’s answer to the question, “What do you say to those who reckon philosophy doesn’t go anywhere?”
“It goes many places, sending scouting parties out into realms most people never even try to imagine, and every now and then it comes back with something wonderful, which thereafter comes to be considered “common knowledge,” not philosophy.”
2. A film I’m really excited to see
Ernest Kline’s book “Ready Player One” was terrific, and now Steven Spielberg is bringing it to the big screen. This could be special https://youtu.be/L96owcBOQhk
3. This week’s glimpse of the future
It’s a safe-cracking robot that narrowed it down from a million possible combinations! #RiseOfTheMachines https://www.wired.com/story/watch-robot-crack-safe/
4. An interview I enjoyed
Here’s the ‘pop-quiz’ interview I got the Dan Dennett quote from. He seems like he’d make a terrific grand-dad / great uncle. https://www.prospectmagazine.co.uk/magazine/the-electronic-age-has-triggered-epistemological-chaos-daniel-dennett-on-the-information-free-for-all-atheism-and-the-point-of-philosophy
5. This week’s 3-minute miracle
What do you get when you mix the infectious vibe of The Jackson Five’s “One More Chance” with Chicago art-rocker Bobby Conn’s potty-mouth? The incredible, “Never Get Ahead” https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=rm9dzLxLvxc
That’s it for this week!
Thanks and big love,
