Dr. Gad Saad: “The Consuming Instinct” | Talks at Google (Video)

In this highly informative and entertaining book “The Consuming Instinct: What Juicy Burgers, Ferraris, Pornography, and Gift Giving Reveal About Human Nature”, the founder of the vibrant new field of evolutionary consumption illuminates the relevance of our biological heritage to our daily lives as consumers. While culture is important, the author shows that innate evolutionary forces deeply influence the foods we eat, the gifts we offer, the cosmetics and clothing styles we choose to make ourselves more attractive to potential mates, and even the cultural products that stimulate our imaginations (such as art, music, and religion).

On the Road to Calamity: Solzhenitsyn’s The Red Wheel: March 1917

Solzhenitysn’s multi-volume The Red Wheel attempts to answer the question: why did the Russian Revolution occur? Solzhenitsyn’s art allows readers to grasp one of the pivotal episodes in history.

One hundred years ago, a catastrophic event took place in the grand city of St. Petersburg. A revolution overthrew the Tsarist government of Russia. Out of the chaos that ensued, the most vicious and ideologically extreme splinter group gained ascendency. When the Bolsheviks violently solidified control throughout the vast Russian Empire, it so frightened people in other parts of Europe that they ceded power to vociferous anti-communist political parties—fascists and Nazis. In turn, those movements led the world into the worst war in history. The end of the World War II did not bring peace, but instead led to a long Cold War in which the United States and the Soviet Union spent uncountable fortunes to defeat each other’s way of life.

Aleksandr Solzhenitysn’s multi-volume The Red Wheel attempts to answer an important question: How did all these horrible events come to pass? When Solzhenitsyn began writing the story in the 1930s, it was not to be a tale of tragedy, but one of triumph. The work was intended to show how Solzhenitsyn’s boyhood hero Lenin founded a society based on equality, freedom, and brotherhood. The tenor of the book changed when the psychotic Stalin succeeded Lenin and began to systematically enslave and brutalize the Soviet Union in an effort to establish Marx’s vision of a perfect society. Solzhenitsyn was swept up in the whirlwind of terror, spending years in forced labor camps under the most inhuman conditions.

How to Fail at Almost Everything with Scott Adams (Video)

The Dilbert comic strip artist and political philosopher Scott Adams sits down with Peter Robinson to discuss his book How to Fail at Almost Everything and Still Win Big. He discusses with Peter his theory of “talent stacking,” the idea that rather than being an expert in one particular skill (i.e., Tiger Woods and golf), one can become successful by stacking a variety of complementary nonexpert skills.

In Germany, there’s a replica of The Parthenon made from 100,000 banned books

Some of the literature included are Salman Rushdie’s The Satanic Verses, Mark Twain’s The Adventures of Tom Sawyer, and The Kite Runner by Khaled Hosseini.

South American artist Marta Minujin has built a stunning replica of Athens’ famous Parthenon using not concrete, but instead, an unconventional construction material: books – 100,000 copies of them.

Part of this year’s 100-day ‘Documenta 14’ art exhibition in Kassel, Germany, the installation features 100,000 books wrapped around the Greek temple’s façade. It’s called The Parthenon of Books, and it comprises 170 titles that have been censored around the world.

To find these books, the 74-year-old artist from Argentina asked help from students at Kassal University in coming up with a list of 170 banned titles, then she asked the public in finding donated copies.

Torching the Modern-Day Library of Alexandria

“Somewhere at Google there is a database containing 25 million books and nobody is allowed to read them.”

You were going to get one-click access to the full text of nearly every book that’s ever been published. Books still in print you’d have to pay for, but everything else—a collection slated to grow larger than the holdings at the Library of Congress, Harvard, the University of Michigan, at any of the great national libraries of Europe—would have been available for free at terminals that were going to be placed in every local library that wanted one.

At the terminal you were going to be able to search tens of millions of books and read every page of any book you found. You’d be able to highlight passages and make annotations and share them; for the first time, you’d be able to pinpoint an idea somewhere inside the vastness of the printed record, and send somebody straight to it with a link. Books would become as instantly available, searchable, copy-pasteable—as alive in the digital world—as web pages.

It was to be the realization of a long-held dream. “The universal library has been talked about for millennia,” Richard Ovenden, the head of Oxford’s Bodleian Libraries, has said. “It was possible to think in the Renaissance that you might be able to amass the whole of published knowledge in a single room or a single institution.” In the spring of 2011, it seemed we’d amassed it in a terminal small enough to fit on a desk.

“This is a watershed event and can serve as a catalyst for the reinvention of education, research, and intellectual life,” one eager observer wrote at the time.
