Your Favourite Things - 161

Your Favourite Things - 161

July 16, 2020

What are your favourite things? We are going for a more light-hearted tone this week on the podcast. We have had some heavy subjects as of late. Some levity never hurt anyone before.

So, this time, I am going over some of my favourite things. As an added bonus, you get to hear clips of dialogue from movies, and pieces of songs that I enjoy.

Talking about favourite movies, songs, artists and bands, video games, books and authors, quotes and memes, toys and collecting, and rabbit hole conversations that make you think. I also talk about my girlfriend Julie at the end of the show.

As an added bonus, there is a trailer and discussion of the Pink Cloud Nine podcast.

Robots, Replicas and You: Simulation or Reality - 160

Robots, Replicas and You: Simulation or Reality - 160

July 9, 2020

Who are you? What makes you, you? How do you know if you're really real? Are we living in a natural world or some kind of a simulation?

This week, we take a deep dive into some rather dense topics. First, we look at the concept of 'you' as an individual. Every person you encounter has a different version of who you are in their heads. How do we reconcile all these versions?

Technology is progressing at a rapid pace. Are we heading towards the singularity? Are we there now? Perhaps we are in some type of simulation. Is this the Matrix?

We touch on the concepts of androids, cyborgs and robots. The Turing test is explained. And we touch on the 3 laws of robotics.

Replicas, starring Keanu Reeves is investigated. After a spoiler filled review of the film, we discuss just how possible something like this is.

Replika is a new app. It is your AI chatbox; your new best friend; perhaps your lover. We review the app and talk about some of its features and how it relates to the topic.

Is Adulthood Real? - 159

Is Adulthood Real? - 159

July 2, 2020

Feel like a grown-up? Are you mature? Do you have your life all figured out? Are you someone that other people hold up as a shining example of what it means to live a proper life? Is adulthood really real, like for real life?

There are many stages in life where a person may feel as if they have reached a certain stage or level of maturity or independence. But, is adulthood real? How many of you out there feel like an adult? In my experience, it isn't very many of us.

On average, most people feel as though they are about 13 years younder than their actual age. And, there are many stages of life where you can be considered an adult. Other things in life may make you feel more mature or grown up, such as going away to school, buying your first car, living on your own, having a child or getting married.

All these questions and more will be covered in this episode. Plus, we have 21 things that will help you feel like an adult.
