SORT BY Relevancy
In this episode, blogger Sacerdotus will speak on the topic "The Universe as a Simulation." Some philosophers and even some physicists believe this may in fact be true. Even Hollywood has touched on the hypothesis via blockbuster movies such as "The Matrix" where humanity is cognitively enslaved in a simulation of the universe.
Are we a "brain in a vat?"
Are we really here or projections on a machine?
Is what we call reality in fact a "Sims game" of sort?
Who made this simulation?
What powers this simulation?
Is this even possible?
Does this prove God exists?
Sacerdotus will touch on these questions and more in this program using philosophy of science paradigms and physics.

In the world of game theory, simulation, international relations, and foriegn relations, there are a class of events called "Black Swans." These are moments like the 9/11 attacks, the 2008 finaqncial collapse, and the attack on Pearl Harbor. Always a severe surprise and normally unplanned for, Black Swans are the kinds of events which changed the course of human history, and frequently destroy the best laid plans of nations and political leaders across the world. The first and probably greatest Black Swan of the 20th Century occurred in Sarajevo on June 28th, 1941 when a terrorist group ("The Black Hand") sponsored by the Serbian military intelligence service, assassinated the heir to the throne of the Austro-Hungarian Empire. The murder of the Archduke was the "sparkplug" event which plunged the planet into its first industrial global war, destroyed most of the European family dynasties, killed millions of people, and laid the groundwork for worldwide conflicts that continue a century later. Sadly however, most of the world has forgotten the events of summer 1914 in Sarajevo, and usually to our mutual disaster.
To learn more about the assassination of Archduke Ferdinand, and the long-term effects, join bestselling author, historian, journalist, and documentary filmmaker John D. Gresham (@greshamj01) for Military Monday (#MilitaryMonday on the Writestream Radio Network (@Writestream)) at 1 PM EST. His guest this week is renowned strategist, historian, and U.S. Naval Institute Press (@USNIBooks) author Dr. Harlan Ullman. Dr. Ullman's new book, A HANDFUL OF BULLETS is a detailed examination of the events in Sarajevo that day, along with a long-term look at the effects and legacy of the assassinations. Join us for what is sure to be a most intriguing hour, about how history truly affects us today.

“Perversion is in the eye of the beholder.” Today on BOLD, we discuss the socio-cultural origins of BDSM and other fetishes as it relates to the Fifty Shades of Grey phenomenon.
“That book connects to an accumulated reservoir of frustrated female sexual energy,” says researcher Christopher Ryan, author of Sex at Dawn: How We Mate, Why We Stray and How It Relates to Modern-Day Relationships. “Women have been programmed for centuries to carry shame around their bodies and sexual desire. It is actually freeing for many to say ‘someone made me do this.’”
From 19 century matrons who went to doctors for “vulvular release” to modern-day male CEOs who hire dominatrixes, Christopher sheds light on the shadow side of human sexuality. “The sort of kinky stuff we associate with ‘perversion’, you don’t see in the context of anthropology and evolution. It’s an interesting phenomenon of our time.”
