Welcome to my virtual reality

We are living in truly exciting times. In which technology is enabling us to reach deeper, aim higher and go further than any human has ever been before. We are able to create synthetic life, edit our genetic blueprint, build quantum supercomputers, enter virtual worlds of galactic proportions and infuse all of this with Artificial Intelligence.

This is rapidly and irreversibly changing the world we live in and invites each and everyone of us to ask ourselves these questions: 'what is this reality I find myself in, what is it comprised of and how do I navigate it?' And even more so: 'who am I and what does it mean to truly be Human in this High Tech world?' #knowthyself

'Today, being Human is the biggest act of heroism. Remember: WE are the most advanced technology'

From Wired
Field Trip offers supervised, in-clinic drug experiences to treat some mental illnesses. But if you want to keep your social distance, an app to stand watch could be the next-best thing.

“What type of Trip are you taking?”

The question appears on a phone screen, atop a soft-focus illustration of a dusky, Polynesian-seeming landscape. You could type in meditation or breathwork, or label it with a shorthand wink, like a mushroom emoji. The next question asks, “How far are you looking to go?” You choose “moderate”—you’re planning to ingest, say, 1.5 grams of magic mushrooms, which is still enough to make the bathroom floor tiles swirl like marbled paper. Select one of five prerecorded ambient soundtracks, and answer a few gentle questions about your state of mind. Soon you’ll be plumbing the depths of your consciousness, with an app as your guide.

Never before have a handful of tech designers had such control over the way billions of us think, act, and live our lives. Insiders from Google, Twitter, Facebook, Instagram, and YouTube reveal how these platforms are reprogramming civilization by exposing what’s hiding on the other side of your screen.

How The Future Works: Why your ultimate job is to be HUMAN

Tags: Humanity, HeartHack

THE FUTURE. Are you excited, or are you worried? The next 20 years will bring more change than the previous 300 years. Technology is rebooting the very idea of work, how we work, when we work, where we work, and sooner or later why we work.

Computers are no longer stupid. They're watching, they're listening, they're speaking, they're learning... and they may even be thinking! Science fiction is becoming science fact, and the End of Routine is only one of the outcomes.

How much of your work is routine? Rest assured, anything that can be automated, digitized or virtualized... will be. This is as certain as music is in the cloud, cars are driving themselves, and money is going digital.

James Doty - Into the Magic Shop

Tags: Humanity, InnerTech, HeartHack

In this inspiring talk, you'll witness a neurosurgeon’s quest to discover the mysteries of the brain and secrets of the heart. This journey started when 12 years old James wandered into a magic shop and met a woman who saw the potential in him and taught him how to manifest his potential through a series of techniques and meditative exercises. With her, he learned a unique relationship between the brain and the heart that later led him to incredible international success both in business and academic life. In this session, Dr. Doty will tell his inspiring story and share the meditative exercises that shaped his life. And, last but not least, he is able to back it up with leading-edge science and data.
