Indigenous Knowledge: the wisdom of deep listening | RSA Event

What could we learn if we listened carefully and connected with place more deeply? What could happen if we looked at global systems from an indigenous perspective, one concerned with understanding the patterns of living knowledge relations that exist — and always have existed — between all things?

Tyson Yunkaporta, acclaimed author of Sand Talk and Norm Sheehan, Australia’s leading Indigenous systems thinker, join RSA Oceania Director Philipa Duthie for a very special ‘yarn’ exploring issues of culture, climate and sustainability.

Across a rich and expansive conversation, they reflect on the need to cultivate cultures of repair to re-establish the relationships that are foundational to life: our relationship with the land, with Country, with culture, and with each other.

Underpinning these relationships is the principle of respect. Only when we respect the living connections between all things and places can we live in balance with Earth’s systems.

We acknowledge the Traditional Owners and custodians of the unceded lands on which this event was filmed, and pay our respects to Elders past, present and emerging. The RSA supports the Uluru Statement from the Heart to achieve justice, recognition and respect for Australia’s First Nations people and a referendum to enshrine a First Nations Voice in the Australian Constitution.

Look out for more events on this theme coming up in our Regenerative Futures programme this autumn.

Will Constructor Theory REWRITE Physics?

Check Out American Voices: Keep it Close: https://youtu.be/LMJqb5A51_Y

The people behind the greatest leaps in physics – Einstein, Newton, Heisenberg, all had the uncanny ability to see the fundamentals – see the deepest, underlying facts about the world, and from simple statements about reality they built up their incredible theories. Well what if we all had a recipe book for doing exactly this. Well, one might be just around the corner and it’s called Constructor Theory.

The A-B-C’s of Wrongful Convictions | David Lewis | TEDxBeaconStreet

No one wants a person to be sent to prison for a crime that person did not commit. But when someone is found to be innocent or wrongfully convicted and freed, people treat the original conviction as a random error, a fluke, or the result of the actions of a bad apple in the system. Wrongful convictions, however, are not random errors or flukes, but the accepted by-product of a criminal legal system functioning as intended.

The reality is that wrongful convictions are actually a critical warning sign of systemic disfunction. The first step on the journey to fixing that disfunction and to real change is to realize that systemic problems require systemic solutions. And realizing that requires us to look at the criminal legal system in a new way.

David Lewis is an Assistant District Attorney in the Suffolk County District Attorney’s Office in Boston, Massachusetts. He was hired by District Attorney Rachael Rollins in December, 2019 to be the first Chief of her newly-created Integrity Review Bureau. In the two years he has been Chief of the unit, the IRB has provided relief to ten people who were wrongfully convicted or convicted unjustly and who had been incarcerated for a combined total of 321 years. Not having to pay for these men to be incarcerated has already conservatively saved the Commonwealth in excess of $1,000,000.

Prior to joining the Suffolk County District Attorney’s Office, David was an appellate attorney for over twenty years whose practice focused on civil and criminal appeals in state and federal court. During his career, he litigated over 150 appeals with published opinions in 26 cases. He has chaired and presented at multiple appellate CLE seminars and is the author of several surveys and articles on appellate advocacy. This talk was given at a TEDx event using the TED conference format but independently organized by a local community. Learn more at https://www.ted.com/tedx

Why the US is always hitting a “debt ceiling”

Is the huge US national debt a problem?

Subscribe and turn on notifications 🔔 so you don’t miss any videos: http://goo.gl/0bsAjO

Nearly every year, America seems to teeter on the edge of a crisis as the national debt comes dangerously close to hitting the “debt ceiling” and the President and Congress fight over raising it. The “debt ceiling” is really just a limit on how much debt the country can take on. While the US isn’t the only country to have one, it is the only country to have legislation that regularly puts it on the brink of economic disaster.

The current US debt is nearing $29 trillion. That’s a trillion with a T. Is that… too much? And who does it affect?

Want to know what the US national debt is as of right now? Here’s where the Treasury has it updated: https://fiscaldata.treasury.gov/datasets/debt-to-the-penny/debt-to-the-penny

The Treasury also updates the foreign investor totals every month: https://ticdata.treasury.gov/Publish/mfh.txt

The Wild Plan To Bring Back Woolly Mammoths

Woolly Mammoths could soon make a comeback. A new company is on a mission to create a mammoth-elephant hybrid, and their reason might surprise you.

What if I told you that there’s a plan to bring back wooly mammoths back to Siberia? Wild right?!? And if resurrecting a 6-ton creature that’s been extinct for about 4,000 years isn’t crazy enough, wait till you hear this…they’re hoping to enlist these shaggy creatures to help us solve a mammoth-sized problem.

Mammoths were great ecosystem engineers. They knocked down trees and shrubs, making room for light colored grasses that reflected more sunlight than the darker trees, keeping ground temperatures cooler.

In the winter, they trampled through the snow, exposing the ground to the arctic chill. By maintaining their grassland home, they also protected a perpetually-frozen layer of carbon-rich soil underneath, called permafrost. By the end of the last Ice Age though, most of the mammoths vanished, and the grasses of the steppe did too.

We don’t know whether to point the finger at humans, climate, or some other cause, but what we do know is that the ecosystem changed significantly.

Your antivirus squad is up against a code that’s hijacked your mainframe. What you’ve learned from other infected systems, right before they went dark, is that it likes to toy with antivirus agents in a very peculiar way— and you’re the agent that’s been selected to go up against the malware. Can you figure out which disk that runs your mainframe has been corrupted? James Tanton shows how.

———————————————————————————-
CRISPR (Clustered Regularly Interspaced Short Palindromic Repeats) is a revolutionary technology that gives scientists the ability to alter DNA. On the one hand, this tool could mean the elimination of certain diseases. On the other, there are concerns (both ethical and practical) about its misuse and the yet-unknown consequences of such experimentation.

“The technique could be misused in horrible ways,” says counter-terrorism expert Richard A. Clarke. Clarke lists biological weapons as one of the potential threats, “Threats for which we don’t have any known antidote.” CRISPR co-inventor, biochemist Jennifer Doudna, echos the concern, recounting a nightmare involving the technology, eugenics, and a meeting with Adolf Hitler.

Should humanity even have access to this type of tool? Do the positives outweigh the potential dangers? How could something like this ever be regulated, and should it be? These questions and more are considered by Doudna, Clarke, evolutionary biologist Richard Dawkins, psychologist Steven Pinker, and physician Siddhartha Mukherjee.

– Our ability to manipulate genes can be very powerful. It has been very powerful.

– This is going to revolutionize human life.

– Would the consequences be bad? And they might be.

– Every time you monkey with the genome you are taking a chance that something will go wrong.

– The technique could be misused in horrible ways.

– When I started this research project, I’ve kind of had this initial feeling of what have I done.

JENNIFER DOUDNA: CRISPR gene-editing technology is a tool that scientists can use to change the letters of DNA in cells in precise ways. So I like to use the analogy of a word processor on a computer. So we have a document, you can think about the DNA in a cell, like the text of a document that has the instructions to tell the cell how to grow and divide and become a brain cell or a liver cell, or develop into an entire organism. And just like in a document, the CRISPR technology gives scientists a way to go in and edit the letters of DNA. Just like we might cut and paste text in our document or replace whole sentences, even whole paragraphs or chapters. We can now do that using the CRISPR technology in the DNA of cells. CRISPR is an acronym that actually represents a sequence of DNA letters in the genomes of cells. It’s found in bacteria and it was interesting to scientists originally because it’s a bacterial immune system, a way that bacteria can fight viral infection. For scientists this is sort of really a gift that allows research to proceed very quickly in terms of understanding the genetics of cells and organisms but also provides a very practical way to solve problems. In clinical medicine, the opportunity to make changes to blood cells that would cure diseases like sickle cell anemia, a disease where we’ve understood the genetic cause for a long time. But until now there hasn’t been a way to actually think about treating patients. And now with this technology, it’s possible in principle to remove stem cells that give rise to blood cells in a person’s body, make edits to those cells that would correct the mutation causing a sickle cell disease and then replace those cells to essentially give a patient a new set of cells that don’t have the defect. It’s one thing to talk about being able to remove mutations from the human population that cause genetic disease. And I think for many people that would be a desirable thing to do. On the other hand, I think it’s a very different discussion to think about using a technology like this to create enhanced human beings. People that are taller or have a certain eye color or other kinds of physical or intellectual traits that might be considered desirable. And it sort of immediately brings up sort of the the whole area of eugenics and sort of access to technology. Who gets access, who pays for it, who decides, who decides whether or not to do such a thing, should companies be allowed to offer this as a service to parents who want to do this and if so, should they be regulated in some way? There’s a lot of very interesting and challenging questions, I think that go along with that.

Why don’t we cover the desert with solar panels? – Dan Kwartler

Explore what would happen if we covered the Sahara Desert in solar panels, and the possibility of it solving our energy crisis.

Stretching over roughly nine million square kilometers and with sands reaching temperatures of up to 80° Celsius, the Sahara Desert receives about 22 million terawatt hours of energy from the Sun every year. That’s well over 100 times more energy than humanity consumes annually. So, could covering the desert with solar panels solve our energy problems? Dan Kwartler digs into the possibility.

You Own Your Wearable Data, So What Should You Do With It? | Reed Ferber | TEDxYYC

Sharing your wearable technology data can build a better world. There are hundreds of thousands of people using scientifically-valid wearable devices such as Garmin, Fitbit, and Apple smartwatches in order to track their activity and monitor their daily living. Using these data, we can better understand how people work, play, and commute. Everyone who uses a wearable device owns their own data, and each individual can decide how to share that information. Dr. Reed Ferber is a Professor with joint appointments across the Faculties of Kinesiology, Nursing, and the Cumming School of Medicine at the University of Calgary. He is the founder and director of the Running Injury Clinic and internationally recognized as a leading expert in biomechanics research using wearable technology. Currently, he leads a team of UCalgary researchers in the NSERC Wearable Technology Research and Collaboration (We-TRAC) CREATE Training Program to train the next generation of wearable technology experts. He is also an award-winning teacher and has been inducted into the Student’s Union Teaching Hall of Fame as well as being named a Killam Laureate after receiving the McCaig-Killam Teaching Award in 2020. This talk was given at a TEDx event using the TED conference format but independently organized by a local community. Learn more at https://www.ted.com/tedx

Digital Humanities | Swantje Dogunke | TEDxUniHalle

Digital Humanities? For some time now, we have been encountering the term in university teaching, in funding programs, or in “classic” humanities publications. In my talk I would like to give a little insight into the subject area and look at the Digital Humanities from the perspective of a museologist, librarian and information scientist. It’s about typewriters, modelling knowledge systems, turtles, and YouTube. These are topics we find in the Digital Humanities, a new field of research or a new way of thinking in the humanities. Swantje Dogunke studied museology in Leipzig an Library and Information Science in Berlin. She has been working in the area of “Digital Humanities” since 2014 and is interested in building research infrastructure, data from the cultural sector and participatory design.Since 2021 she works as a subject librarian at the Thuringian University and State Library. This talk was given at a TEDx event using the TED conference format but independently organized by a local community. Learn more at https://www.ted.com/tedx

Are geniuses real? The neuroscience and myths of visionaries | Big Think

Are geniuses real? The neuroscience and myths of visionaries

———————————————————————————-
Revolutionary ideas and culture-shifting inventions are often credited to specific individuals, but how often do these “geniuses” actually operate in creative silos?

Tim Sanders, former chief strategy officer at Yahoo, argues that there are three myths getting in the way of innovative ideas and productive collaborations: the myths of the expert, the eureka moment, and the “lone inventor.”

More than an innate quality reserved for an elite group, neuroscientist Heather Berlin and neurobiologist Joy Hirsch explain how creativity looks in the brain, and how given opportunity, resources, and attitude, we can all be like Bach, Beethoven, and Steve Jobs.
———————————————————————————-
TRANSCRIPT:

-There is no such thing as a lone inventor. We want to be as empowered as Ayn Rand. We want to think that we are the fountainhead, so this is how we tell the story. But until you believe that genius is a team sport, you will never give up control.

– It’s not just about collecting a bunch of data and knowing a lot of facts, but it’s making these novel connections between ideas.

– I think all of us as humans are sort of endowed with the need to make things better. Genius is just an extreme version of that but it represents us as humans in a very fundamental way.

TIM SANDERS: There are myths of creativity and these myths are usually propagated by people that have romantic notions about heroes, romantic notions about eureka moments. And these myths of creativity keep people from collaborating and it causes them to be a lone wolf. And the research says it causes them to fail. So let me talk a little bit about those myths of creativity. In the world of sales and marketing, I battle against three myths. Myth number one, the lone inventor. This is very dangerous because there is no such thing as a lone inventor. As a matter of fact, there’s a lot of historical research that has debunked Einstein. Specifically in terms of inventions, Henry Ford, not a lone inventor. Classic example, Thomas Edison. In the invention community, Thomas Edison is a brand. It stands for 14 people. Yes, there was a figurehead named Thomas Edison. His name is on 10,000 patents. He did not invent a single thing. He marshaled people together and knew how to spot innovations and put people together like, a creative soup, if you will. Here’s a classic example, Steve Jobs, you ask the average person, say a millennial who uses a lot of Apple technology, “Who’s one of the greatest inventors of our time?” They’ll say Steve Jobs. Steve Jobs once said, “I never created anything. “All I did was notice patterns “and put people together to finish projects.” So think about it. If he doesn’t have Wozniak, there is no original Apple, right? If he doesn’t have Ive, there is no iPod. If he doesn’t have Tony Fiddel, there is no iPhone. And the list goes on and on.

Got a good friend of mine, David Berkus, who wrote a really wonderful book about the myths of genius. And he was telling me that it’s a romantic notion. And I remember when I first read this research years ago, no lone inventor, it did kind of hurt my feelings. I’m a musician in my past. I thought I wrote a lot of songs but according to the research, I’d never wrote a song. I always collaborated with somebody, the song that actually made it to the record and made it on the radio had 15 to 50 hands on it. When I talked to David, I said, “When I read your research, it kind of hurt my feelings.” And he goes, “It’s a romantic notion because we want to be heroes.” We want to be as empowered as Ayn Rand. We want to think that we’re the Fountainhead. So this is how we tell the story. But until you believe that genius is a team sport, you will never give up control. And this is the problem for a lot of people in sales. They don’t want to cede any level of control over their process to somebody outside of sales world because they don’t value those voices enough. But the research is clear on this, Miller Heiman Institute researched the difference between good and great. They call it world-class organizations. They win, they sell 20% more than their nearest competitor. The only thing they have in common is they’ve broken this myth and they understand that every deal is about rapid problem solving and no one person can solve the problem on their own.

Quickly, the other two myths of creativity that must be dispelled is the eureka moment. There is no such thing as a big idea that changes the world. I know this is another one of those hurtful, but very true based on empirical research…

Can love and independence coexist? – Tanya Boucicaut

Dig into Zora Neale Hurston’s classic novel, “Their Eyes Were Watching God,” which follows Janie Crawford in her search for love and agency.

Baritone thunder. Snarling winds. Consuming downpours. Okeechobee, the hurricane of 1928, forced many to flee their ruined communities. But for Janie Crawford, it inspired an unexpected homecoming. So begins Zora Neale Hurston’s acclaimed novel “Their Eyes Were Watching God,” about a Black woman’s quest for love and agency. Tanya Boucicaut dives into this classic of the Harlem Renaissance.

Lesson by Tanya Boucicaut, directed by Tomás Pichardo-Espaillat.
