Skill Mastery & Peak Performance through Deliberate Practice with Psychologist Anders Ericsson

Anders Ericsson, author of the book "Peak: Secrets from the New Science of Expertise". He is among the world's leading authorities on how to new master skills.

Donald Hoffman: The Case Against Reality (Consciousness, Evolution, Cognitive Science)

My guest today is cognitive scientist Donald Hoffman, author of the book "The Case Against Reality". Don has been making waves with a theory of reality that splinters all of our preconceived notions. What if everything we thought was real -- the physical world around us and the notion of time -- are not reality but a vast surface-level operating system designed to guide our behaviors for evolutionary survival. What if understanding true objective reality were in fact counter to evolutionary success.
