Because it speculates about what this story is going to show next” [8:25] “criticism is the only known antidote to error.” [37:59] “become maximally creative by reciprocally holding each other accountable.” [40:32] “together, if we criticize each other, we can cancel each other's delusions, but work together on each other's good ideas. It's a positive-sum game” [41:21] “…there are attempts to resurrect it [politics], but I'm afraid it's going to have to be resurrected over the smoldering carcass of one of our parties.” [47:13] “individually we are flawed, but that we can, together, increase the amount of light in the world.” [50:37] “So the right tends to say ‘yay, competition, boo regulation’. The left tends to say ‘yay regulation, boo competition’ […] regulated competition is how we got the spectacular success of sports” [52:25] “the worst thing that's happened to destroy us is also the easiest to solve.” [57:49] “I tell them [students] that if they spend their time at a university, just studying what they're there
to study, they have betrayed their civilization, […] let alone betrayed themselves.” [1:21:41] “…but raging systematically against your limitations. I am not a limited being, oh, I am limited time, I'm limited in resources, I'm limited in brainpower, I'm limited in all those things, but I can be interested in more than one thing.” “It's the attitude that makes you a member of this civilization. I am surrounded by wonders I deserve to know about them.” [1:33:25] Follow David Brin:
