Absolutely love it! Recommended by a human, for a human. However, bet the title was created by an algorithm! Just guessing! Everyone should read the his book! Reply I just love how he says "Umans" Reply I missed the type of meditation he practises. How it that spelled? Did he say 'passive' like the captions state? Reply By meditation he means he gets high Reply One of the best thinkers of our time. Reply I'm reading this book and i just love itChapter : nationalism is 🔥 🔥 🔥 Reply Be careful about someone who has the recipies of how to change the world. Even a statement that such change is necessary should make you suspicious. Look deeper and you find a lot of utopia in his presentation. He isn't a scientist, he is a historian. Predictions of outcome is an integral part of science, but he admits he isn't even interested in predictions. Reply This conversation in itself is a good example of how stuck we still are in the liberal philosophy of free will. The Google-guy doesn’t get it. Reply This guy is a vacuous fraud . Reply Harari's reading method: reading many books, just a few pages, grasping what is new. No need to read a hundred pages. He is thinker which insights are just surprising. Reply Indian wisdom had long long ago addresed these issues. Reply Love you yuval… From Arunachal Pradesh Reply Interviewer isn't up to the job. Google should be able to do better. Reply A lot of very wobbly ideas being promoted here in a very confident package. For example, around 30:44 Harari says "the best test of reality I know is the test of suffering …. If you want to know if a story is about a real entity or a fictional entity then you should just ask can this entity suffer?" He then goes on to argue that Google can't suffer so it is not real. But by this definition the ground under your feet is unreal too and so is the keyboard I am typing on. Reply At 57.00 Harari says that "if you want to commit genocide then you begin by hacking the disgust mechanisms in the brain." A closer look at the roots of the Holocaust shows that you first need to have intellectual respectability for racism … which comes very conveniently from Darwinsim which is the foundation for all Harari's thinking. The full title of Darwin’s revolutionary publication was “On the Originof Species by Means of Natural Selection, or the Preservation of FavouredRaces in the Struggle for Life.” The second part of the title shows thatDarwin’s ideas were overtly racist. In the eighty years between itspublication and the outbreak of the WWII, people were enthusiasticallyapplying the ‘favoured race’ logic to public policies in Europe andAmerica. In “From Darwin to Hitler: Evolutionary Ethics, Eugenics, and Racismin Germany,” Professor Richard Weikart shows how Darwinist thinkers inGermany began applying the good of the race as the sole criterion ofpublic policy. What started as proposals to control the breeding of peoplewho were considered racially inferior, ended with the gas chambers for awhole people group. Richard Evans, Professor of Modern History,University of Cambridge, also recognises the role of a variety of Darwinistwriters and scientists in providing Hitler and the Nazis with the scientificjustification for their policies. I explore these ideas carefully in my forthcoming book: www.faithtechbook.com Reply I don't understand why so many commenters think that the host was dumb/incompetent. I think he did fine. Not stellar, but fine. After all, Google is known for its programmers, not talkers. Reply Lesson 22 is How to Make Money Writing Clickbait Book Titles! Reply A great video despite the uninspired interviewer, repeatedly interrupting and unable to engage with the answers he was getting. Reply "Compassion is the basis for any society" is the leftists bias perspective on this question. The work of Johnathan Haidt shows that "authority", "sanctity" and "ingroup purity" also provide an important basis for group survival. Reply Thank you very much Yuval. The world is for all, share it appropriately. Reply 49:50 till end: A warning for people of the nations promoting a prejudice or a hatred towards a country or a race or a religion. Reply It's a real shame that Harari is a moral relativist. Harari needs biology lessons. Morals are built-in our biology. Everyone know the same thing about being unjustly accused. Your biology tells you that truth serves compassion and justice. Every human knows the same truth. No, morals are not purely psychological. Morals are not whatever you happen to think. Every human needs compassion to survive infancy, and everyone looks for love at the end of life. There's no subjectivity involving the function of biology to social order. It's a shame because otherwise he seems really bright. Biology lessons are in order. Learn about the functions of emotions and instincts. Reply after 45:00 Reply Wilson White…. Reply great talk. terrible company Reply Within minutes, Harari tears apart the concept of free will. I love this guy!!!!!! Reply Harari begins "21 Lessons for 21st. Century" with a call for clarity in a world deluged by irrelevant information. No one can provide this clarity as effectively as Harari. For this reason I have given this book to all my children and have recommended it to my friends. Read it, reflect on it, to help you explore what you can (and must) do to build a sustainable and humane future for all persons. Reply Noah you are too intelligent for this world Reply NOAH HARARI AGREED TO REMOVING PUTIN CRITICISM FROM RUSSIAN TRANSLATION OF NEW BOOK AND REPLACING HIM WITH TRUMP. I am disappointed, the desire to be published damaged his judgment. "In the Hebrew version Bibi will be replaced by Abu Mazen, in the Turkish version of Bibi in Erdogan, in the Chinese version of Shi Jingping in Donald Trump and in the North Korean version Kim John Ong in Harry Truman." Reply @25:00 philosophy might have little power but economic theory did and does exert this kind of power: for instance telling that profit is good, and you should maximize shareholders value no matter what. So, it is not exactly true that this happens for the first time. Reply Boring Reply He is a rare gem of the 21sr century. He is treasure of knowledge. Reply Just the final words! LolFunny thing is that the youtube here suggests you some video links to click! Lol Reply I have question regarding evolution and my ancestors. How many ancestors experiences do I incorporate in my genes. Let’s assume that a new generation is born every 20 years. The purpose is to calculate all ancestors 2000 years backward. Let’s begin with simple calculation 200 years backward which means 10 generations backward. One generation back equals 1*2, two generations back equals 1*2*2, three generations back equals 1*2*2*2, ten generations back equals 2^10 = 1024 ancestors for 200 years back. In order to simplify calculations I round 1024 to 1000 or 10^3. Now let’s calculate ancestors backward 400 years which equals to 1000 * 1000, backward 600 years equals 1000*1000*1000, backward 2000 years equals 1000^(3*10) = 10^30. That means that all my ancestors backward 2000 years equals to the number 1 followed by 30 zeros! Did I really have 1.000.000.000.000.000.000.000.000.000.000 ancestors 2000 years backward? Reply I have read Homo sapiens. It is intriguing book and I have learnt a lot. Although I didn’t agree with some contents of the book, it captivated me like no other one. Looking forward to read the other books of the writer. Reply White is so not in sync with what Harari is saying. Wish Google had got someone who was on Harari's page to pin him. Reply 13:40 elevator does not care a child in it or an adult Reply "At the time of crisis philosophy has little power, you act from your gut, not from your philosophical theories". Reply This guy is 100% right and 100% naive. The education system hasn't been about such topics as discussed here since they decided that indoctrination was far more important. Reply Sadly, Mr Wilson White cannot reach the actual reasoning that Prof Yuval is trying to demonstrate. Result being a high quality talk becomes pure entertainment. Reply I use Harari in my teaching as he is thought provoking and gets you to think to try and become = more aware and knowledgable about the WHY – WHAT – HOW – WHERE – WHEN in our lives. We must understand that this planet is fragile. Reply Thank you 😊 Yuval and Googles. Reply There is no free will. All the great minds agree. Reply This is one of the most important books of all times. And I especially love the fact that at the end of the book he is promoting meditation but a stripped down version of meditation without the religious dogma attached. I agree with the other comments that this book should be required reading for every man, woman and child! Reply He always talk nonsense Reply Google eliminate single use plastic from your offices. Reply 8:00 exactly what i said to my friends few days ago Reply Crap – he’s argues human beings have no free will – so that means he has not chosen his own actions, his own path – he’s merely a product of his environment- so no praise is due for his supposed insight. The discussion about the possibilities of Ai is nothing new either. I could watch for example the movie Elysium or Ai and talk about the same Ai concepts. He’s just a fast talking/motivational speaker guy with an agenda- and that’s fine – but I’m not convinced in the least that he’s a genius. I agree with some of his points and not others – these are conversations we have at the dinner table – not genius. Reply a rather simplcistic view by a non-philosopher Reply When can I order my Google ditch digger 2000. I heard if I order early I can get my repair robot X1 so I am covered when my digger 2000 goes down. Reply One big pile of leftists crap… Reply If his fucking zionists buddies did not steal 21 trillion dollars from the United States, and they did not get the United States in a perpetual war and all that money was redistributed to the people. We did not have to reinvent ourselves over and over. Fuck you asshole. Some of as are awake. Just ask yourselves if Andrew Jackson was brought back to life what would he do. He would fuckin shut down federal reserve. On day 1. Reply Vladimir Putin is a thug and a war criminal in Syria and Ukraine and Georgia Reply Would all the so-called leaders in various fields please just first read Yuval ? Reply This POS excrement interviewed at a Vegan restaurant (he's very particular on cruelty to animals), this POS declined to opine on the murder of more than 500 Gaza children by Israel in their genocidal operation on the Gaza Concentration Camp. This POS is more concerned about cruelty to animals than Palestinian children by his apartheid genocide government. Reply This POS is an apologist for genocidal Israel. He declined in a Guardian interview to express a opinion on the bloody Israeli operation that murdered more than 500 children. This POS has opined on the humanity of animals – he's a vegan apparently, He has never opined on the humanity of Palestinians. He's excrement in my view, filth. Reply We didn't inherit our liberal mottos. We deliberately intentionally created our democracy, such as it is. Rule of law. Justice for all. Conversations. Put down your righteousness and pick up a stand. Reply Sorry, beyond belief bullshit – this cunt was asked in a Guardian interview – this when the IDF had murdered 500 children. This POS, this filth declined to address. Reply Yesterday I was torrenting his book and boom… Today Google showed me this Talk in YT feed.. 😂 😂 😂 Reply Worst introduction ever Reply Terrible mediator Reply Another new age ikon for the left… he is a total fraud. Reply 43:40 😭 Reply When this guy calls himself 'a scientist', it makes me laugh. Reply SSSSHHHHIIIITTTT!!! This guy just blew my mind @ 28:00. This is some deep shit!! Reply we lose more Jobs when AI and Biotech is combined. Reply "Identities like tents"? What a disgusting, counter-intuitive idea. This awful guy knows exactly what he's doing… Reply Gawd this interviewer sucks. Reply I checked his books at a store yesterday. And I wondered what I need confirmation for what I think since years anyway? Do I feel better cause some now famous "thinker" proofs I´m right? No, I worry again even more about the stupidity of mankind that makes this man a sensation. And it´s sweet to see the host trying to spot the benefits of the development to avoid the horror of total control his company is aiming at anyway. A critical thinker would focus on that main fact and couldn´t be as naive to discuss big brother scenarios at big brothers palace. If the thinker doesn´t realize he´s used to make big brother look open minded, what big thinker is he? Reply israelis are horrible at making ethical decisions — like murdering academics or using sniper fire to kill and maim women and children who are peacefully advocating for their freedom. Reply On the Future more and more slave😉 Reply Yuval statement " My best advice is to focus on personal resilience and emotional intelligence." stood out as be best advice he gave. Reply Harari is completely rit Reply This was an amazing talk! Reply 46:30 I’m sure his answer to this question will help me a lot in my life. Reply Yuval is the young version of Noam Chomsky…. Reply Getting angry is not a personal decision. Same about being compassion. It takes more than this to experience compassion. Reply 23:00 Engineers must tackle spiritual questions. First time in human history Reply 26:30 stories are essential to move masses to change or do things. Reply 35:14 “Exciting news (or entertainment) for free … and truth gets pushed aside.” We are having our attention hijacked for free and for fake news. Reply 52:00 money or labor will lose their importance; on universal meaning global inequality Reply 53:30 history is not the study of the past but of change. Reply 55:30 hacking the brain with stories; disgust cognitive mechanisms Reply amazing question @56m says it all really Reply This awesome person understands reality! Thinking big! Reply Did he give a recipe on how to create genocide? Reply …"… we're talking about a world in which humans are no longer a black box …"… @11:25 Reply …"… very old spiritual and philosophical questions are now practical questions of engineering which you cannot escape,… if you want, for example,… to put a self-driving car on the road …"… @25:35 Reply Mission given to Google By Yuval: "Don't do what you are doing now, Do the opposite" Reply Hi Yuval, I am going to read all your books. Already finished 'Sapiens' and currently reading 'Homo Deus'. Reply Prof. Harari , I do have a lot of respect for you. But in your book , at part that you're writing about God , you wrote " …Denmark is not not vild like Iran !!! This statement refers meanly to people of Denmark ( I assume) but in comparison , Iranian PEPOLE are accused for being vild , in fact because of their government's behaviour ,I think it's better to be more considerate when you're making / writing these kind of judgements ! Reply Google=Skynet 😛 Reply Professor Yuval has broken the Matrix 😎 Reply The interviewer is clearly struggling and doesn't get it. Reply fucking phoney on the payroll of corporations promoting their values and bullshit. pseudoscientist. Reply Well said.. The true picture about religions…How the religions have manipulated human beings throughout decades to gain power and remain in power…Its important that people should start thinking fresh rationally…. Reply Wilson White but you're black Reply Nice i dont need to buy the book 😂😍 Reply Smart guy!!
