Your body language may shape who you are | Amy Cuddy
 
21:03
Body language affects how others see us, but it may also change how we see ourselves. Social psychologist Amy Cuddy argues that "power posing" -- standing in a posture of confidence, even when we don't feel confident -- can boost feelings of confidence, and might have an impact on our chances for success. (Note: Some of the findings presented in this talk have been referenced in an ongoing debate among social scientists about robustness and reproducibility.

Neil deGrasse Tyson: Atheist or Agnostic?
 
03:49
Don't miss new Big Think videos! Subscribe by clicking here: http://goo.gl/CPTsV5 Astrophysicist Neil deGrasse Tyson claims the title "scientist" above all other "ists." And yet, he says he is "constantly claimed by atheists." So where does he stand? "Neil deGrasse, widely claimed by atheists, is actually an agnostic." Neil deGrasse Tyson: I'm often asked -- and occasionally in an accusatory way -- "Are you atheist?"  And it's like, you know, the only "ist" I am is a scientist, all right?  I don't associate with movements.  I'm not an "ism."  I just  - I think for myself.  The moment when someone attaches to a philosophy or a movement, then they assign all the baggage and all the rest of the philosophy that goes with it to you, and when you want to have a conversation they will assert that they already know everything important there is to know about you because of that association.  And that's not the way to have a conversation.  I'm sorry.  It's not.  I'd rather we explore each other's ideas in real time rather than assign a label to it and assert, you know, what's going to happen in advance. So what people are really after is, what is my stance on religion or spirituality or God?  And I would say, if I find a word that came closest it would be agnostic.  Agnostic -- the word dates from the 19th century -- Huxley -- to refer to someone who doesn't know but hasn't yet really seen evidence for it but is prepared to embrace the evidence if it's there but if it's not won't be forced to have to think something that is not otherwise supported. There are many atheists who say, "Well, all agnostics are atheists."  Okay.  I'm constantly claimed by atheists.  I find this intriguing.  In fact, on my Wiki page -- I didn't create the Wiki page, others did, and I'm flattered that people cared enough about my life to assemble it -- and it said, "Neil deGrasse is an atheist."  I said, "Well that's not really true."  I said, "Neil deGrasse is an agnostic."  I went back a week later.  It said, "Neil deGrasse is an atheist." -- again within a week -- and I said, "What's up with that?" and I said, "I have to word it a little differently."  So I said, okay, "Neil deGrasse, widely claimed by atheists, is actually an agnostic."  And some will say, well, that's -- "You're not being fair to the fact that they're actually the same thing."  No, they're not the same thing, and I'll tell you why.  Atheists I know who proudly wear the badge are active atheists.  They're like in your face atheist and they want to change policies and they're having debates.  I don't have the time, the interest, the energy to do any of that.  I'm a scientist.  I'm an educator.  My goal is to get people thinking straight in the first place, just get you to be curious about the natural world.  That's what I'm about.  I'm not about any of the rest of this.   And it's odd that the word atheist even exists.  I don't play golf.  Is there a word for non-golf players?  Do non-golf players gather and strategize?  Do non-skiers have a word and come together and talk about the fact that they don't ski?  I don't—I can't do that.  I can't gather around and talk about how much everybody in the room doesn't believe in God.  I just don't—I don't have the energy for that, and so I . . . Agnostic separates me from the conduct of atheists whether or not there is strong overlap between the two categories, and at the end of the day I'd rather not be any category at all.  Directed / Produced byJonathan Fowler & Elizabeth Rodd

How to Squash a Paranormal Claim
 
03:22
The James Randi Educational Foundation has never met a "psychic" it couldn't discredit—easily. Still, Randi understands why such frauds appeal to people. Question: What does the JREF consider a legitimate test of paranormal claims? A test of any specific claim is going to depend entirely upon that claim.  If you say you can speak to dead people, I've got a whole load of questions I would like to ask certain dead people.  Answers to which I already have, and the dead people, since they are dead, I don't believe they've got the answers any longer, but if you want to call them up and ask them the questions and come up with the right answer, hey, you could win the million dollars.  Now, many people say they can read minds, they can predict the future, they can interpret dreams and such, well, it all depends on the specific claim they make.  All they have to do is say what they can do, under what circumstances, with what accuracy.  And some people have taken, literally, years.  One fellow, a PhD in California took four and a half years to answer those three questions, and finally when we got ready to enter into tests with him of "remote viewing," as he called it, and he actually gave courses in this at the university in California, he suddenly changed his email address and his telephone number.  We haven't been able to reach him since. Isn't that strange?  I guess he doesn't need the million dollars. Question: What has been the most difficult paranormal claim for the JREF to disprove?James Randi: I'd like to say that there has been one particularly difficult one, but no, they've all been so easy.  They've been so easy because they've been so transparent. I've been in this business for a long, long time and I've seen everything.  Recently, I got a nice contract to go to South Korea and do a TV series, which I did there, testing South Korean "psychics," so-called.  And they told me before I left, they said, "Oh, Mr. Randi, you signed the contract, so I guess we should tell, we've got psychics in South Korea that you've never seen before."  And I went off there with my assistant and we looked at them and turned to one another and said, "Wait a minute. This is the same thing that has been going on since the 1600s. It's in all the books. It's exactly the same thing. They're serving kimchee at lunch instead of macaroni, or whatever, but in any different culture, in any differen... the costume is different, the language is different, but the same stunts are being done again, and again, and again.  They haven't invented anything new since the early 1600s.   Question: Do you believe supernatural thinking is ingrained in human cognition?James Randi: Well, you'd have to ask a psychologist, and perhaps a few psychiatrists that question because technically I can't answer that question.  But I will tell you, I suspect strongly that people need to have some more romance in their lives.  After all, look at the average kid who is male or female who was raised by their parents who believe that he or she will have children and will have a wife or a husband and they will be absolutely ideal people and everything will go... you will be a doctor, or lawyer, or you'll be very wealthy, have a beautiful home.  It doesn't work out that way all the time.  In fact, it seldom works out that way.  And so they look around and say, "What have I done wrong?"  And them somebody runs an ad on television saying, "Oh, I can solve your problems.  I can give you guidance to the future, and I can look into the crystal ball, or read the tarot cards," or whatever.  They may tend to fall for that sort of thing because they say, "They wouldn't' say that if it weren't true."  Oh, yes, they would.  And there's a huge profit margin in this.  So people do fall for these things very, very easily.Recorded April 16, 2010Interviewed by Austin Allen

Jason Silva Shares His Best Advice
 
02:14
If you practice kindness and follow your bliss, you won't go wrong. Question: What's the best advice you've ever gotten? Jason Silva: I always say that one of the best pieces of advice that I've ever gotten, has been echoed by two great thinkers, my mother Linda Mishkin and Joseph Campbell. Joseph Campbell said, "Follow your bliss." I couldn't agree more with that. My mom always said, "Just do what you love and don't worry about anything else, don't worry about money, don't worry about anything. Just be kind to everyone and do what you love." As long as you're not hurting anybody else, as long as you're being kind to people and you're doing what you love, only good things can come of it. Other good advices are people who claim to have absolute irrefutable faith in something without any evidence, I would not trust completely. Yeah, I just, I'm a, I relate a lot to people like Carl Sagan. I recently read one of his books that was based on a speech that he gave in a divinity school. It's interesting because Carl Sagan was one hundred percent a scientist but he was very spiritual. I mean and he said, "The universe gives up plenty to be spiritual about, we don't need to adapt any form of dogma." Look at the evidence and to be willing to question your own truths, and to be willing to scrutinize things that you hold dearly because that way, that transparency, that self awareness will protect you from ever becoming somebody that whose beliefs somehow make them have myopic vision about what could be. So, remain open and be willing to be transformed by new information. Recorded on: April 14, 2009 Question: What's the best advice you've ever gotten?

Paul Simon performs "American Tune" at 2011 Induction Ceremony
 
04:41
Paul Simon Musician American Tune Lyrics by Paul Simon Many's the time I've been mistaken, and many times confused And I've often felt forsaken, and certainly misused. But it's all right, it's all right, I'm just weary to my bones Still, you don't expect to be bright and Bon Vivant So far away from home, so far away from home. I don't know a soul who's not been battered Don't have a friend who feels at ease Don't know a dream that's not been shattered Or driven to its knees. But it's all right, all right, We've lived so well so long Still, when I think of the road we're traveling on, I wonder what went wrong, I can't help it I wonder what went wrong. And I dreamed I was dying. I dreamed my soul rose unexpectedly, and looking back down on me, smiled reassuringly, and I dreamed I was flying. And far above, my eyes could clearly see The Statue of Liberty, drifting away to sea And I dreamed I was flying. We come on a ship we call the Mayflower, We come on a ship that sailed the moon We come at the age's most uncertain hour And sing the American tune But it's all right, its all right You can't be forever blessed Still, tomorrow's gonna be another working day And I'm trying to get some rest, That's all, I'm trying to get some rest.

The Science of Being Successful | Sadhguru
 
05:52
Speaking about what it takes to be successful, Sadhguru explains that success comes when an individual functions at his full potential, which is possible only when the dimension of inner wellbeing is explored. Sadhguru looks at how every aspect of Indian culture was crafted, and powerful technologies were created, to evolve a human being to the Ultimate possibility. Sadhguru Talks @ IIT Madras, Student Activity Center, Chennai, Oct 2010 **************************************** Transcript: http://isha.sadhguru.org/blog/video/the-science-of-being-successful/ Questioner: Sir, I'm a skeptic. Sir, you… you talked about this fact that we should enhance our competence. So how do you start this process? Sadhguru: IIT is a beginning. So… what are you skeptical about? You don’t believe competence will work in this world, is it? Corruption is also a certain kind of competence, anyway. Questioner: That was supposed to be a joke. Sadhguru: Okay, that’s supposed to be a joke. So, now, ‘How do I enhance my competence?’ See, let’s say you want to run on the field, let’s say you want to run a race, you want to run one hundred meters. It is not running that you have to work on right now, you have to work on your legs and lungs and muscle and everything. Isn't it so? So if you want to become a great engineer, yes, definitely an institute like this is crucial on one level, but any number of people might have come here and gone, not all of them became great engineers. Though they might have produced hundreds of great engineers, still not all of them will become, simply because of their own individual attitudes and competence and whatever else, isn't it? So whatever the institute can do for you, it is doing. One foremost thing that you need to do is to enhance your own physical and mental capabilities, because if you want to be a good engineer you have a… you need a working brain. Just having a degree of engineering can… may be a passport to a job, but it is not a passport to success, isn't it? So to have a working brain, which the engineering degree will not freeze… Usually lots of degrees, when people acquire degrees they freeze their brains; they think they can… now they are finished using it and now they can rest it for the rest of their lives; it is not so. This is only to enhance your capability. This is just an organized effort. A school, a college, an institute is just an organized effort towards that, because each individual cannot craft it for himself, that is why an institution; otherwise an institution has no other purpose, it is here to just organize that possibility of you striving to be of a certain competence - but that is a mass application. But as an individual, your most important thing is you as a human being, you are functioning at the fullest level. If that has to happen, there are other dimensions which one needs to explore. Unfortunately though these sciences and technologies for inner well-being have been the mainstay of this culture for thousands of years, today we are largely losing it for various reasons because we want to imitate somebody else, we don’t want to imitate our grandfather Topiwala anymore, we want to imitate the hat seller from another country; because of that we are losing those things, but we should not. We have to bring it back into our lives, this is very much a part of the way the culture itself is structured, that it is all about the human being. See, this is the only culture which talks about – which even a illiterate person in this culture is aware of – that you can actually evolve to another dimension of existence. Even if I go into a village and talk to an illiterate peasant, who has not read anything, who doesn’t know anything, who has not heard any of this stuff, even to him if I go he will not ask me ,‘Give me a golden horse’ or something, he’ll say, ‘Mukti venum Swami.’ He's saying he wants Ultimate liberation. Where did this fellow get this?..

You are not your body: Janine Shepherd at TEDxKC
 
19:01
We often define ourselves by things that are "outside" us: relationships, work, family — even our own bodies. But what would it mean to have your life dramatically altered and your body irrevocably damaged? Who would you be then? This talk explores the impact of loss on the human psyche and the universal quest to find meaning and fulfillment. It is only through the process of losing everything we thought we needed that we find who we truly are. BIOGRAPHY Janine Shepherd is a walking paraplegic; she is also a qualified pilot and aerobatics instructor, international speaker and author.

Adultery - Sadhguru
 
06:30
Adultery in a relationship is not about right or wrong, it is just a question of sense and consequence. Sadhguru goes beyond the limited moral definition that society ascribes to adultery today and looks at bringing love into everything we do, not just into our relationships. Sadhguru Talks @ Volunteers Sathsang, Isha Yoga Center, Coimbatore, Jul 2002 **************************************** Transcript: http://isha.sadhguru.org/blog/video/adultery/ Questioner: Sadhguru, what are your views on adultery? How does it affect one spiritually? Sadhguru: If there is no love in your heart, you are anyway an adulteress. For convenience and comfort if you have given yourself to any aspect of life, not necessarily a man or a woman for that matter. Without love in your heart, if you have given yourself to any aspect of life you are an adulterer, isn't it? So, am I against adultery? Yes, in that sense yes, with every aspect. But if you are talking about what is considered socially as adultery, it is individual; and for every action that you perform there is a consequence. Most people I know, they are not willing to face the consequences when they come; but without facing consequences they want to have situations that they enjoy. Then anybody who is not willing to joyfully accept the consequences that come to them for whatever actions they perform is just a fool. And a fool is somebody who is against himself in so many ways. Anybody who works against himself; anybody who turns himself against himself, or herself against herself, what should we say about them? So, with your actions, if you are turning yourself against yourself, because you do things senselessly; you are not doing things by choice. You are doing things senselessly simply because you have given in to a certain aspect of your body or your emotion or something, then definitely it’s not ok because you will bring suffering to yourself. Anything that brings suffering to any human being, especially to himself, is it ok? Anybody who simply goes about bringing suffering to themselves, for whatever reason they have, it doesn’t make sense, isn't it? I am not against or for anything. I want you to live sensibly. What makes utmost sense to you, you must do that. Is this wrong, is that wrong? That’s not the point. Are you living your life sensibly, that’s the question. Or are you a slave of something and trying to find approval from me for some nonsense that you do. No. I have neither approved any action or disapproved any action. As long as you are, as long as you are behaving sensibly about what you are doing. A senseless life is sin, isn't it? If you live sensibly, in a way that creator will be proud of you, its fine. If you have just given into either the ways of your body, or your emotion or your mind, and going against yourself, it’s not sensible. So such senselessness, is it wrong? I am not even saying it is wrong, it’s just very limited and stupid. I have never termed anything right or wrong in my life. But anything that is limited and stupid is not worthwhile, that’s all. So I would say adultery is not worthwhile. Is it right or wrong? Who am I to pass a judgment on anything about life? I don’t pass judgments about life, but it is stupid and limited to do anything which causes suffering to yourself. It is stupid and senseless to give into something which seems to be everything today and tomorrow will make you feel like a fool, isn't it? It’s…it’s stupid to give in to something which makes you think today it’s everything and tomorrow morning it makes you look like a fool to yourself. Not to somebody else. That is a senseless way to live. You must live in such a way, with so much sense, that gods should be envious of you. If you show such sense there is no right and wrong with your life. If you don’t have such sense, everything is wrong with your life.

Paul Auster to Young Writers: Lose the Ego
 
03:02
The novelist believes that it's "the burning need to do it," not to be praised, that spurs great writing. Question: How can someone read like a good writer? Paul Auster: Well, again, we get into very murky territory here because it's all a matter of taste. I mean, I have the writers that I care about most, the writers that I think are the greatest of the past and of the present. But my list would be very different, perhaps, from yours. But I guess the important thing for young writers is to read, read the good ones. And I suppose by that, I mean, the ones who've withstood the test of time. You know, the great ones. Hawthorne, Melville, Dostoevsky, Tolstoy, Kafka, Dickens, that's where you're going to get the most, I think. And when you see how, you know, brilliantly they do things, Flaubert, you know, all the names that we know. But they're there for a reason, because they really are the best writers. And I think you have to learn from the great ones. Question: What's the most common trap beginning writers fall into? Paul Auster: Common trap, I suppose a kind of an egotism, self-importance, inability to look out of themselves, and I think it's important to look very closely at the world, everything happening around you, and sometimes for young people it's difficult to do that. And the other thing is to, to get too attached to some of the things that you think are clever that you're doing. I think cleverness has its spots, its place in the world, perhaps, but the burning need to do it is what makes for good work. The wish to do it doesn't really help you. It's when it's absolutely necessary. So when I talk to young writers, I mostly tell them, don't do it. Don't be a writer, it's a terrible way to live your life, there's nothing to be gained from it but poverty and obscurity and solitude. So if you have a taste for all those things, which means that you really are burning to do it, then go ahead and do it. But don't expect anything from anybody. The world doesn't owe you anything and no one is asking you to do it. And I suppose it's this feeling of accomplishment that young people feel sometimes is that, "Well, of course my book should be published! Of course I should be able to earn a living out of this." Well, it just doesn't work that way. Recorded on November 5, 2009Interviewed by Austin Allen Question: How can someone read like a good writer?

Why Am I Stressed? - Sadhguru on Stress
 
07:03
Sadhguru looks at why people are going through so much stress in today's world. If you ask people why they are stressed, many will say it is because of their job. However, even if you take care of their survival process and don't make them work, still people won't be settled with life. Narrating a story about an Orthodox Bishop who seeks out an Indian Yogi, Sadhguru explains that life is essentially our making. If we do the right things, blissfulness is a natural state of being. Otherwise, by handling things unconsciously, your inner situation can become turmoil. **************************************** Download Sadhguru App 📲 http://onelink.to/sadhguru__app Yogi, mystic and visionary, Sadhguru is a spiritual master with a difference.

Physics in the Days of Einstein and Feynman | Freeman Dyson
 
03:50
Freeman Dyson never spoke to Einstein, but revered him from afar. He was a "totally exceptional person"—as was another colleague, Nobelist and "clown" Richard Feynman. Question: Do you have any personal recollections of Einstein?Freeman Dyson: I mean I was here in Princeton when Einstein was still alive, but I never spoke a word to him and in fact, he moved in his own circle of friends.  He didn't have anything much to do with the young people here at the institute, so we never actually contacted...  He never came to our talks or to our meetings, which was a shame, but that's the truth.Question: What misconceptions do people have about Einstein?Freeman Dyson:  Well I suppose what most of what people believe about him is true, I would say.  I mean he was a totally exceptional person in all sorts of ways.  His science was exceptional.  His humor was exceptional, his ability to say... just to answer questions in a witty way so that he got in headlines in the newspapers.  He had just this wonderful gift of talking to the public, and in addition of course he had a turbulent family life and he was a, in many ways a selfish and unpleasant character, but on the other hand he was wonderful with children and so on.  I mean there were all sorts of...  He had wonderful qualities and those things I think the public rightly appreciated.Question: Of the scientists you worked with, who inspired or mentored you?Freeman Dyson:  Well of course the one I wrote about most, the one I enjoyed most, was Richard Feynman.  He was...  When I knew him best he was quite young, so he and I were about five years apart, so he was a young professor and I was a student, and he took me for a ride across the country from here to Albuquerque in a rickety old car and we had a great time.  So I mean he was a wonderful person to be around.  In addition he was a genius and so he was doing the physics that actually made me famous.  He had the ideas and then I translated them into mathematics, so we worked together in that sense, so he had always...  He did the real work and I tied it up afterwards, but anyway, it was a great thing to be with him and I enjoyed him enormously, and in addition because he was a great joker, he was a clown.  He loved to play the fool and he was famous for picking locks.  He could open a safe and he did that quite a lot just in order to shock people, and he told stories about himself, most of which were true.Recorded March 5th, 2010Interviewed by Austin Allen Question: Do you have any personal recollections of Einstein?Freeman Dyson: I mean I was here in Princeton when Einstein was still alive, but I never spoke a word to him and in fact, he moved in his own circle of friends.  He didn't have anything much to do with the young people here at the institute, so we never actually contacted...  He never came to our talks or to our meetings, which was a shame, but that's the truth.Question: What misconceptions do people have about Einstein?Freeman Dyson:  Well I suppose what most of what people believe about him is true, I would say.  I mean he was a totally exceptional person in all sorts of ways.  His science was exceptional.  His humor was exceptional, his ability to say... just to answer questions in a witty way so that he got in headlines in the newspapers.  He had just this wonderful gift of talking to the public, and in addition of course he had a turbulent family life and he was a, in many ways a selfish and unpleasant character, but on the other hand he was wonderful with children and so on.  I mean there were all sorts of...  He had wonderful qualities and those things I think the public rightly appreciated.Question: Of the scientists you worked with, who inspired or mentored you?Freeman Dyson:  Well of course the one I wrote about most, the one I enjoyed most, was Richard Feynman.  He was...  When I knew him best he was quite young, so he and I were about five years apart, so he was a young professor and I was a student, and he took me for a ride across the country from here to Albuquerque in a rickety old car and we had a great time.  So I mean he was a wonderful person to be around.  In addition he was a genius and so he was doing the physics that actually made me famous.  He had the ideas and then I translated them into mathematics, so we worked together in that sense, so he had always...  He did the real work and I tied it up afterwards, but anyway, it was a great thing to be with him and I enjoyed him enormously, and in addition because he was a great joker, he was a clown.  He loved to play the fool and he was famous for picking locks.  He could open a safe and he did that quite a lot just in order to shock people, and he told stories about himself, most of which were true.Recorded March 5th, 2010Interviewed by Austin Allen

Never, Ever Give Up. Arthur's Inspirational Transformation!
 
04:55
If this story can inspire someone you know, please share it with them! Arthur Boorman was a disabled veteran of the Gulf War for 15 years, and was told by his doctors that he would never be able to walk on his own, ever again. He stumbled upon an article about Diamond Dallas Page doing Yoga and decided to give it a try -- he couldn't do traditional, higher impact exercise, so he tried DDP YOGA and sent an email to Dallas telling him his story. Dallas was so moved by his story, he began emailing and speaking on the phone with Arthur throughout his journey - he encouraged Arthur to keep going and to believe that anything was possible. Even though doctors told him walking would never happen, Arthur was persistent. He fell many times, but kept going. Arthur was getting stronger rapidly, and he was losing weight at an incredible rate! Because of DDP's specialized workout, he gained tremendous balance and flexibility -- which gave him hope that maybe someday, he'd be able to walk again. His story is proof, that we cannot place limits on what we are capable of doing, because we often do not know our own potential. Niether Arthur, nor Dallas knew what he would go on to accomplish, but this video speaks for itself. In less than a year, Arthur completely transformed his life. If only he had known what he was capable of, 15 years earlier. Do not waste any time thinking you are stuck - you can take control over your life, and change it faster than you might think. Hopefully this story can inspire you to follow your dreams - whatever they may be. Anything is Possible!
