The Ontological Rabbit Hole

The_Ontological_Rabbit_Hole

Series 1, Revision 2, Audio Version of Script. The full version is on the way, in the mean time I've put this out there for subscribers to this channel.

What's going on, why content release has stalled and when new content is coming out.

205, Atheism Defined As A Positive Belief System, Protomachinism, Description:
I genuinely believe I can give a good explanation as to why atheism can be fairly defined in the positive. The subject matter can be difficult, so I would ask you to be charitable and consider it carefully. I've made references to existing philosophical concepts in many places that can be researched to understand what I'm trying to say more deeply. I would enjoy a good conversation about this.

To Manchester With Love Video Description:

After having my tantric experience in 2012, in 2014 I moved to Manchester, hoping I would be reunited with a lost love. I took a leap of faith that would be set to change my whole concept of reality. This is that story and it's an integral part of what brought me to the fantastic conclusion of the series. I don't want to throw my personal life at you uncesecarily, but this will help you understand my motivations and drive to find the answers to the deepest questions.

When Fantasy Hits Reality Video Description:

When you start believing things that don't line up with the truth of reality, you either have to reject the truth and embrace being delusional, with the heavy cost that will bring to your life whether you know it or not. To align with truth, you have to reject the things you started to believe in, it can be very painful. In 06, To Manchester With Love, I had built my own religion and now I had to face facts, I was wrong.

Telepathy is Bullshit

Thanks to those I spoke with in Manchester!

Telepathy Video Description:

I've had experiences that have felt quite telepathic, but it's so important to try to understand our experience within the context of the wider group. While the scientific evidence for telepathy is sufficiently interesting and in depth for it's own special episode, Episode 10, I wanted to get into debate, relate possible models as to how telepathy may well seem entirely reasonable and share with you my own experiences.

204, Illegal Comedy, A Dialogue With Barbara Keeley MP (#grosslyoffensive), Description:
I joined in a letter writing campaign to our MP's about Mark Meechan being convicted for a joke. Even though I think it's crass, was it really OK that he should be arrested for it, then convicted for being grossly offensive? I take up the serious issues around Ms Keeley's reply and then go on to explain three thoughts as to why Section 127 of the Communications Act of 2003, may well need to go.

UK Anti Terror Law Vs-Lauren Southern, Description:
I've watched a handful of Lauren Southern's videos and while I acknowledge her bias and her activism, her bias appears to be self confessed. She seems to represent a loosely knit group of thought about how the world is unfolding around us and it's different to my default view. The difference makes me take interest when she gets herself into trouble, at first it was with Patreon, now it's with the UK authorities. Should we be worried that anti terror law is being used against journalists?

Psi Phenomenon Description:
When you have psi experiences directly yourself, experiencing tends to be believing. I outline the sorts of psi experiences that I've had in the first part of the video, to be followed by what happened when I tried to look for evidence of what I'd experienced personally, in science. I make the case for and against psi in an episode that I can only imagine will have a bit of something for everyone and be challenging to most people too.

Quick Note:
This video has been released out of order, this is because I wanted to make the telepathy videos side by side (05 and 10), one covering the personal experience and one covering the scientific case. I will go back to doing the videos in order (back to 06) when 11 is complete.

Tantra Video Description:

So I've had my own, personal tantric experiences that happened pretty much spontaneously. I talk through my tantric experience and how it changed my life. Before, the experience and after. My worldview would never be quite the same again. I know this has been said before, but I'm not aware of anyone with a background in hypnosis and being a bit of a science geek talking about it from those different lenses and worldviews and what it's done to them.

Brief Video Description:

Belief, whatever you chose to believe about belief, the chances are someone else will believe something different. Surely it's in these differences that we can find the commonalities and start to explore what belief really is? To start, we'll consider the notion of religion and how that relates to belief. Next, we'll look at Darwinian vs Newtonian thinking. Thirdly we'll look at a perspective that sounds very much like a coding perspective. Finally we'll look at more traditional styles of argument and see how those compare to the more intellectual perspectives on belief.

I did consider how I might articulate my own case fairly directly, but when I did the research for this video, I realised that The Art of Story had done more or less just what I wanted to do, only with a quality and elocquence that I would find nearly impossible to produce in the production schedule for the Ontological Rabbit Hole. I'm sorry guys, at the moment it's taking me a month per episode to get just right, though I'm trying to increase that now I'm settling into functional habbits from my more creative fluid intelligence appraoch. Hmmm... seems I've been learning on the way.

I'm highlighting some of the most captivating videos I've wathced here and I condense down short run through's of clips for commentary afterwards.

Brief Video Description:
Education, Science & Technology form the bedrock of our society. How solid is that bedrock? How should we be looking to grow and evolve?

This video goes through my own experience of education, I'm a little bit too much of a lay person to give more than a subjective take in this regard, but I've given it serious thought and have some questions to ask.

In the second part, I explain there are a few things I could have decided to focus on for Science & Technology, but I choose to go into an area that I feel has poor public understanding and something I started taking very seriously myself and considered changing careers to go into the area myself, some years ago. I talk about the importance of abundant, clean, cheap energy for the human race and how we might solve existing problems and provide that at the same time.

Kai Engel - Brave New World

From the noble exploration of the market place of ideas, Dave Rubin's channel:
Bret and Eric Weinstein, Brothers Together at Last (LIVE)

I don't know Peter Thiel well, but I came across his speech and found some of it pretty compellling, a view I don't often hear articulated and one that I feel should be heard and considered:

Kirk Sorenson, a man on a mission to ensure we don't forget the lessons we've already learnt:
The Thorium Molten-Salt Reactor: Why Didn't This Happen (and why is now the right time?)

These two men are legends in my mind, but that doesn't mean I completely agree with Bret Weinstein over nuclear:

Consume nuclear waste, produce loads of cheap power, why aren't we going crazy for this?:

When I think of the BBC, this is how I like to remember it. A well sourced and exceptionally compelling investigation.:

Unfortunately no link available, but you could search the web for a version to rent or buy.

If they can be supported by us and government, I think they could be heroes of our time:

Michael Shellenberger gives a fantastic presentation on why he changed his mind on nuclear power:

Anti Nuclear and Pro Nuclear seems like a false dichotomy to me, but these people are clearly passionate about what they believe:

Brief Video Description:

I was a skeptic and a cynic, then a hypnotic subject, then a hypnotist. Some say I was hypnotised into believing in hypnosis and that it's actually not a real thing. I think they're confused. I go over the questions:

What's possible with hypnosis?
What is hypnosis and why are humans vulnerable?
What's it like to be hypnotised or to be a hypnotist?
What crossover is there between hypnosis, advertising, cults & mind control? (Also ideological posession)
What's this got to do with Ontology?

I've been obsessed with the nature of reality and self from 2014 onward. I'm not here to prescribe a religion, or a correct perspective, but I want to encourage meaningful dialogue and conversation. I've learnt a lot over the last 4 years and I want to advance our understanding of who we are and the meaning of life.
