Bill Gates is literally throwing chemicals into the atmosphere intentionally as you say the goal is 0% emissions....

Was recommended this video because Tim Morton gets a mention, but gosh this is a messy essay. It flips the hyperobject definition around to not be about unknowability and the hubris of exclusive belief in reason, but posits hyperobjects as being just another big thing we humans can know and get a handle on, if we only avoid cognitive fallacies by reinventing the wheels of scientific consensus and representative democracy. Those two institutions already exist, and fixing their corruptions requires (to Morton and co.) a better appreciation of the philosophical, critical, and playful approaches, besides the predominant reasoned approach to things. Morton and co. are very specific about how to think and act differently, and how presently possible those changes already are, rather than being dreams of some future utopia. Calling those other three ways of thinking and informing action (philosophy, criticism, experimental play) merely "the future of reason", the latter defined here as facts and logic, is muddling and conflating definitions and leads to no real conclusion at all? Lots of good fragments of lipservice to other thinkers and science folk though. Good stuff to look up, though I'd wish mr. sauce had better integrated and collated all his sources into something meaningful.

you learn from childhood to read facial expressions like when your mother is angry so then if you see how someones facial expressions looks you can see if they are happy or not and you can actualy know why someone is angry fore example u did something that they dont like to them and yes you cant know aswell because if you mother comes home and u actualy did nothing that makes her angry u could not know why she is angry .

To contribute an opinion, the future of reasoning will be non-existent. There will be no reasoning in the future. Whether we reach a civilization where we become one mind or a civilization that we have rulers who decide things for us, reasoning will become inefficient, redundant, or even a taboo. This all boils down to what I call behavioral entropy, where emotions are extinguished and all are equal and the same. We can see some signs now where opinions become offensive, meanwhile, what is new and non-conventional, destroying the traditions, becomes the modern setting. Remember when Michael said that an individual's opinion is inaccurate, but the mean of that shared opinion from many individuals becomes accurate? That is what's happening, the climax is arriving. There's no conclusion to reach, there is always debate. Social Equilibrium where everyone thinks the same thing is on its process of creation. Once all the opposing sides collide, creating sparks, fire, and destruction, either the bigger eats the small or a compromise will be reached. There will be peace, but at the same time, there will be nothingness. There is no contrast, no light nor dark, but only gray. This will start on the bigger scale with the help of the internet. Then from the world to a continent, from a country to a city, from a house to an individual. The decision or the compromise have yet to be concluded as this process will take a very very long time, even centuries. However, by the time our civilization reaches that point, reasoning will disappear together with emotions and maybe, even communication. What is the point of socializing if everyone thinks the same and acts the same as you do? That's how it will just happen. There's a price for everything, the law of exchange. We are part of nature, therefore, just like how the universe will end not with a bang due to entropy, so are we. Edit: This is just an opinion with no extensive research, thank you for your time :)

Is it really the case that people do not get an occasion to debate nowadays? Or is it that we do, but when we do, every side just keeps reaffirming their own view? We could ask ourselves why that's the case. A very good point in the video, that "if everyone else was just using logic, everything would be fine" is a very limited view, but it didn't take us far enough. People need to learn to understand and respect emotions. Because when someone feels a certain way, that is a fact. This is the real barrier to "reasoned debates". This is especially for people crticising the "fake news" state of the world, who love to value "reason" above how others feel, to learn.

Something that wasn't mentioned was lying. People can have an incentive to lie to the detriment of others. Then, conversation can be used to manipulate, so in turn other people are paranoid about others fooling them, so they shut down to themselves and don't like to discuss things. Also, people don't like getting told they are wrong for some reason, so they get really emotionally invested in an argument like their life depends on it. That seems like an issue.

If reason comes from available information, isn't it crucial to consider where the majority get their information? If one was to reverse engineer reason by curating information for the masses (mainstream media/social media ect) one could hijack the process to produce a desired result, correct?

A lottocracy sounds very interesting and I think it would be quite effective even possibly at a larger scale, but WHO controls the random selection? If it's possible for a jury and or judge to be bought out or "personally" selected by one of the sides in a court case and politicians at any level, so to can the randomly selected people for the lottocracy.

a video packed with many REASONS that many things are wrong in this world, cuz its not often about reasoning its about money and power... and a true honest discussion about facts is sometimes hard when some scientists are corrupt and paid to state false information so that the outcome is that what some powerful person wanted it to be. i like the idea of tha randomness that surely could give better results than this where only the billionaires do everything they want and if they do it wrong... well heck delete that information with all the power you got so that only the good parts of you show true... (like gates... wasnt he on "child pleasure island" with his millionaire friend who tortured a lot of children... then his friend killed himself and his wife stated it all after she was sent to prison... wonder what the REASON was to go on that private island) if the people would be all like vsauce it would be great but sadly theres only one vsauce ever born
