What If We Lived 50 Years Into the Future? - Guest: Steven Kotler

April 17, 2020

Mark Twain once said...Well, Mark Twain said a lot of things but in this particular context, his "it's difficult to make predictions, particularly about the future" is as apropos as it is yogi Berra-ish. But these days, futurism is not only harder than it's probably ever been, but also not for the faint of heart. Everything from AI to quantum computing to epigenetic and nanotechnology have some people excited (and many people terrified) about just what exactly does the future hold. 10 years from now feels like an eternity, let alone 50!!! Award winning and best selling author of smash hits like "The Rise of Superman", "Stealing Fire" and co-author of a new book "The Future is Faster Than You Think" along X-Prize Founder Peter Diamonds, Steven Kotler would be in the "excited" category when it comes to what the future holds 50 years from now. But he also very much sees the challenges ahead as well. Join Teddy and Richard and Steven Kotler for a jaw-dropping, awe-inspiring conversation around the question, "What If you lived 50 years into the future?".
