Jason Silva (@JasonSilva) would have been called a “performance philosopher” by counterculture icon Timothy Leary. Among many things, he’s a futurist, filmmaker, creator of short video series Shots of Awe, and host of the National Geographic Channel’s Brain Games and Origins: The Journey of Humankind.
What We Discuss with Jason Silva:
- How our concepts of self are formed — often through the eyes of others — and how they affect our behavior.
- How top performers excel by shutting down the editorial parts of the human brain coined by Buddhists as the monkey mind.
- Why “unscripted” isn’t the same as “unprepared,” and how videos can be edited to elicit altered states of consciousness.
- How good directors help performers get out of their heads — while bad directors do just the opposite.
- How is day-to-day reality edited by context, similar to the Kuleshov effect demonstrated by Alfred Hitchcock?
- And much more!
