The Natural Intelligence Podcast

By Inqwire, PBC
There is a widespread belief that we have a flaw in our 'code' that makes us destined to destroy ourselves. But this is a misunderstanding. This doesn't have to be our fate unless we let it be. We have a choice. The truth is that it's not our nature to destroy ourselves. And, the truth is that there is something that we can do. This series will present a new understanding of how the mind works, will explain how we can restore our most important and most powerful abilities, and will give answers to what we can do to win the race against insanity and create a world that makes sense.

Unpacking the Unexamined Harms of Psychedelic-Assisted Therapy: Part 3
This episode is part 3 of a series of conversations prompted by the recent Cover Story, Power Trip podcast episodes exploring the MDMA-Assisted therapy trials by MAPS and the stories of participants who went through severe negative experiences that were previously not publicly known or acknowledged. In this episode we deep dive into a series of thought experiments around the role of the therapist in psychedelic therapy and imagine into what testable mechanisms for good outcomes might look like.

This episode is part 2 of a series of conversations prompted by the recent Cover Story, Power Trip podcast episodes exploring the MDMA-Assisted therapy trials by MAPS and the stories of participants who went through severe negative experiences that were previously not publicly known or acknowledged. In this episode we continue the conversation where we talk about things like the mechanisms of psychological harm, the role of psychedelics in a therapeutic process, the role of therapists or guides, and thought experiments around how psychedelics introduce new dimensions of harm and meaning, beyond existing mental health interventions.

Unpacking the Unexamined Harms of Psychedelic-Assisted Therapy: Part 1
This episode is the first part of a series of conversations prompted by the recent Cover Story, Power Trip podcast episodes exploring the MDMA-Assisted therapy trials by MAPS and the stories of participants who went through severe negative experiences that were previously not publicly known or acknowledged. We use this as a launch point for a conversation where we talk about things like the mechanisms of psychological harm, the role of psychedelics in a therapeutic process, the role of therapists or guides, the placebo effect and psychological diagnoses, and the danger of the enhanced placebo effect in psychological interventions.

Re-Imagining the World Through the Lens of Natural Intelligence
This episode is an announcement that we’re transitioning the podcast into a new chapter, a chapter where we will be re-imaging the world through the lens of natural intelligence. The world we live in has been built and architected while we’ve had the wrong understanding of the mind and cognition. This leads to a real call to action to both modernize around our correct understanding, and restore what we lost. This is going to be a central theme of our next series. ======= Produced by Inqwire, a public benefit corporation on a mission to help create a world that makes sense.

Wicked Problems 5: Building Tech to Address the Bottleneck
In this lesson, we continue to explore design constraints on an information technology for global human coordination. We talk about the information bottleneck and how that lead to humans organizing in hierarchical structures that disseminate ungrounded models, and how to overcome that challenge. We talk about peacefully resolving conflicts and the importance of conceptual blends for model revision. And we also talk about how we have addressed many of the design challenges for architecting an information technology like this, and that the next steps are adoption and transition. ======= Produced by Inqwire, a public benefit corporation on a mission to help create a world that makes sense.

Wicked Problems 4: Design Constraints and Challenges for Global Human Coordination
In this lesson, we explore design constraints and challenges for an information technology that could successfully facilitate global human coordination with each other and the environment such that we can navigate towards a future that is best for our long term survival and thriving. We talk about the nature of data that is required for the information technology, constraints on the architecture for the information technology, and what you'd expect to emerge from implementing this architecture in an information technology.  ======= Produced by Inqwire, a public benefit corporation on a mission to help create a world that makes sense.

Wicked Problems 3. How Different Information Technologies Succeed and Fail when Addressing Them
In this episode, we explore what it would look like to “think globally and act locally” with natural intelligence, and how technology can successfully support individuals in applying natural intelligence to solve problems in their local context in a way that’s consistent with the “global reality.” We go into existing real-world examples to explore how the design of the information technology systems is critical to determining their success or failure in addressing wicked problems. ======= Produced by Inqwire, a public benefit corporation on a mission to help create a world that makes sense.

Wicked Problems 2. How it Feels Different to Approach Them with Natural Intelligence
We go into how addressing wicked problems using natural intelligence is going to look and feel fundamentally different than when we use analytic intelligence to solve problems. We go into how this may be challenging and frustrating to people who want to be able to solve things directly through control and determination, and how with a naturally intelligent approach, we unlock more possibilities than we expect. ======= Produced by Inqwire, a public benefit corporation on a mission to help create a world that makes sense.
