Episode #904: One Gigantic Hologram
First Broadcast: 9/27/21
René Descartes once said "I think, therefore I am." Can we ever know anything beyond that? Do we all live in a giant simulation of reality? Is the Universe one big hologram? Would a holographic universe explain quantum entanglement, a.k.a. "spooky action at a distance"? How weird is quantum physics? Why does existence exist? Did life on Earth come from aliens? Do we really know if our reality isn't a projection by a demon, or some version of The Matrix (or an episode of the rebooted Twilight Zone)? Did the Matrix movies ruin our lives by contributing the term "red pill" to the language? How hypocritical was Ayn Rand? Are selfish people prolonging the COVID-19 pandemic? Could we really have stopped the virus in its tracks if we had all literally stopped going anywhere for a few weeks? Won't the virus keep mutating if we don't all get vaccinated? How common are feral children? Why does there seem to be such a narrow window in which humans can learn how to be social with other humans? I don't know if we found too many answers this week, but now you can think about these questions just as much as we did!
So, what is Free New York anyway? The simple answer is that it's a
this neat little
public access TV show on
Manhattan Neighborhood Network which I co-produce with the
tremendous help of my camerawoman/editor/everything else,
Kim. The complicated answer
is that it's a project of mine to broadcast opinions and events which
don't always appear within "the mainstream media" (like The New York Times,
the major networks, local radio, etc.), and so far I think it's been working.
If you think I'm doing a good job--or not--and you feel
like sending me snail mail, the address is:
Free New York
P.O. Box 20945
Tompkins Square Station
New York, NY 10009
You can also email me at firstname.lastname@example.org, which should get to me a lot faster than the snail mail.
