meta math.large  150x150 Where is the Unknown? (closer than you think)Is the universe random or orderly? In this video, Simeon explains why randomness is closer than you think. The books mentioned are Meta Math!: the Quest for Omega by Gregory Chaitin and David Disalvo’s What Makes Your Brain Happy and Why You Should Do the Opposite.

    Simeon–I love your videos and always look forward to what you have to say and to your reading recommendations. But why do you create the videos on a noisy city street? it distracts from what you are saying.

  • SimeonHein

    Thanks, I like chaotic environments for topics that have to do with chaos theory.

    Couldn’t have said it better… Trash dumpsters and traffic = Too noisy and distracting… Also, from a photography/video perspective, your aesthetics really, really should reflect the quality of your information a little better… because the info is great… and the presentation environment, not so much.

    I love your podcasts Sim. I agree with you and Susan and Dr Dia, there is merit in both points of view. I propose an experiment: do a videocast in a beautiful setting like a Constable landscape (Bowmar nr Calne) and see if you can communicate as well and how your audience perceives your communication. I can see that you are fed by the chaotic energy of traffic in the street, similarly I like to paint with chaotic music as it helps me focus intent. It would be interesting to see the results of this experiment.
    If you’re in London visit Temple square and the old round Templar church. Powerful place!

    I get it but the noise does distract from communicating what you are trying to say, IMNSHO. Never the less, I am inclined to want to read the books you are referencing. Fascinating stuff. So do you think there is meaning in the universe or do we just feel the need to find some? I go back and forth on the subject myself.

  • SimeonHein

    Well, my view is that there is no built-in meaning to the universe. That’s a good thing because it gives you room to create the universe from scratch, every moment. It’s up to you to give it meaning. So go wild.
