 Tristan Harris - How Social Media and AI Hijack Your Brain | File Type: audio/mpeg | Duration: 1:41:56

Tristan Harris, founder of the Center for Humane Technology, has set in motion the Time Well Spent movement; a cultural awakening to the underhanded manipulation of our collective awareness through social media platforms and interactive tech. He is leading the conversation in consideration of ethics in the design of technology, especially the tech that pervades our every waking hour. Having previously worked behind the scenes of this attention maximizing industry, Tristan brings to light the maladaptive inner workings of the attention economy, and shows the public how our minds have been hijacked for financial gain, with no responsibilities toward the actual wellbeing of the users. The human brain is no match for the flashing, pinging, and beckoning applications which compete with one another for our attention, and gobble up an astounding percentage of the conscious energy of the world. His work is unique and controversial, in that it challenges the ethics of several of most powerful entities in the world. It's time to get real about the use of AI, and the many clever psychological tricks that these platforms use to hook our minds into the screen and placate our impulses to keep us there. Tristan is helping so many people across the world to wake up to our vulnerability to these digital forces, and to the threat that this poses to our sense-making and choice making.

 Nichol Bradford and Dr. Jeffery Martin - A Personalized Path to Higher Consciousness Through Transformative Technology | File Type: audio/mpeg | Duration: 1:41:06

Learn how the journey for a solution to discontentment gave rise to a reliable protocol for dramatic transformation. Integrating technology, neurological imaging, psychological studies and meditation practices, The Finders Course, has made a massive impact. Co-Founders of the Transformative Technology Lab, Dr. Jeffery Martin, and Nichol Bradford, share with us how they have crafted this personalized approach to psycho-spiritual development. Their work was carefully constructed to make finding each individual’s path to higher states of consciousness reachable, reliable, and measurable. Biometrics and psychometrics that correlate with peak happiness are commonly observed in individuals who have also achieved elevated conscious awareness through their breakthrough practices. Those practices were surveyed and compiled into a comprehensive course. By identifying what worked for their collection of subjects, then mapping out the discernible methods, Dr. Martin and Ms. Bradford aim to provide a guided tour of techniques designed to help individuals find their way into a dramatic psychological transformation, like a key in a lock. The persistent goal of their cutting edge technology is to amplify mental health, emotional wellbeing, and human thriving. For the full show notes visit:

 Extinguishing Fear When it Really Matters by Altering Breath and Vision with Dr. Andrew Huberman PhD and Brian Mackenzie | File Type: audio/mpeg | Duration: 1:02:51

Dr. Andrew Huberman, professor of neuroscience at Stanford, and Brian Mackenzie, renowned coach and innovator in health and fitness, have teamed up to stack their distinct professional insights. Find out how research with visually evoked fear in lab mice can be applied to optimize human performance and willful state change. Their work implements a unique combination of breathing protocols and selective visual stimuli, in an instrumental methodology for adjusting one’s state— specifically the fear state. Put this knowledge to use every day in stress management, high performance athletics, and even in actually dangerous circumstances. We discuss how to consciously choose a parasympathetic response over a sympathetic flight or freeze response when faced with real challenge. Brian and Andrew have created a valuable tool for the public. Their upcoming tech application, State, approaches high performance training, recovery, and navigating stress, using reliable objective metrics with techniques and practices grounded in neuroscience and physiology.

 Dr. Molly Maloof - Bringing blood sugar into the spotlight. Revealing the intimate details of your health using critical biomarkers | File Type: audio/mpeg | Duration: 1:30:02

For far too long, healthcare has been a system designed to treat and bill for disease. However, a growing population of patients and doctors have started to building a more accurate picture than ever of each individual’s health with the use of biotech innovations, fine tuned testing, and a quantified-self toolkit. Molly Maloof, MD, is an innovator in health sciences, a practitioner of personalized medicine, and a major advocate for health optimization through regular tracking of key biometrics. She emphasizes a commitment to foundational health involving resilience to stress, continuous glucose monitoring, and proper consumption of micro and macro nutrients. In this discussion we unpack the importance of monitoring the body's dynamic capacity to regulate in real time. Highlighting some surprising facts about diabetes, blood sugar, and aging, we offer new priorities to consider for your health goals.  Find out which crucial bio-markers to look at, to inform effective choice. We discuss the objectives of personalized medicine, shifting healthcare to a multi-modal approach aimed at prevention over treatment. Empowering patients to proactively measure and managing their health on a consistent basis, with meaningful data and lifestyle modifications, is at the core of sustainable wellbeing.

 Dr. Bruce H. Lipton - Epigenetics and Evolution: Bettering Yourself and Humanity | File Type: audio/mpeg | Duration: 1:44:16

For too long, many people have thought that their destiny was controlled by their genes. With advances made in epigenetics, we now know that isn’t the case. Dr. Bruce H. Lipton joins Collective Insights to talk about epigenetics and how the environment can affect genetic behavior. Dr. Lipton also discusses how perceptions of the environment have an impact along with the importance of positive thinking. It all leads to a deeper understanding of how our society will evolve in the future. For full show notes and video of the episode visit: Dr. Bruce H. Lipton, Ph.D joins Daniel Schmachtenberger on Collective Insights to discuss his career work in the field of epigenetics. In this episode, you’ll learn all about epigenetics and why the traditional view of genetic and biological determinism is incorrect. The environment plays a big role in genetic behavior, in part due to how we perceive it. The discussion expands to include a look at how our view of evolution changes thanks to these advances. We also get a better understanding of humanity’s progress and what we need to do to reach that next step in societal evolution. Bruce H. Lipton, Ph.D., bestselling author of The Biology of Belief, is a cellular biologist and former Associate Professor at the University of Wisconsin's School of Medicine.  His pioneering research on cloned stem cells at Wisconsin presaged the revolutionary field of epigenetics, the new science of how environment and perception control genes. His later research at Stanford University’s School of Medicine revealed the nature of the biochemical pathways that bridge the mind-body duality. For more information visit
