The Art of Manliness
Jack London's Literary Code [Rebroadcast]

The Art of Manliness

Note: My guest in this episode, Dr. Earle Labor, died on September 15 at the age of 94. Earle was the world's foremost authority on one of the Art of Manliness' guiding inspirations and lights: Jack London. Earle dedicated his career to London scholarship and his work was pivotal in turning London's literature into a subject of serious study. Earle taught the very first undergraduate and graduate courses devoted to London and penned a hundred articles and ten books about him.Earle not only admired London's devotion to what the author called "the true spirit of romance and adventure," he sought that spirit in his own life. As an undergraduate, Earle started the first weightlifting course at Southern Methodist University and he coached and lifted the SMU team to victory in the 1948 Dallas Open Championships. After college, he and a buddy took an epic road trip, where they did farm work and entered boxing matches to work their way from Texas to Canada. And he served in the U.S. Navy and spent time on a destroyer.I had the privilege of interviewing Earle three times for the AoM podcast. The last time in January 2020, my son and I drove to Earle's home in Shreveport, LA to speak with him in person. To mark Earle's passing, please enjoy this rebroadcast of that conversation.  The literature of Jack London has long been given the short shrift by scholars. They say he wrote some good dog stories for boys, but beyond that didn't showcase any literary genius or high-level craftsmanship. Well, my guest today begs to differ with this assessment. His name is Earle Labor. He's the preeminent Jack London scholar and 91 years young. I've had Earle on the podcast two previous times: the first to discuss his landmark Jack London biography, and the second to discuss his own memoir, The Far Music. For this episode, I drove down to Earle's home in Shreveport, Louisiana to talk to Earle about the overlooked literary genius of Jack London and the big themes that London wrote about in his novels and short stories. We begin our discussion with Earle's story of how he became a Jack London scholar and why London's work was historically neglected by academics. We then dig into London's literary themes by first discussing how he used the Klondike as a symbolic proving ground for men and how success in this wilderness depended on one's ability to mold oneself to Jack's "Northland Code." Earle uses excerpts from my favorite London story, "In A Far Country," as well as "To Build a Fire" and The Call of the Wild, to showcase the tenets of this code, and well as London's literary artistry. Earle then explains how London shifted his themes later in his career with his agrarian writing, how his wife Charmian changed his perception of real women and his female characters, and the influence that psychiatrist Carl Jung had on London's last works.Consider this episode a masterclass on the literature of Jack London.Resources Related to the EpisodeEarl's biography of Jack LondonMy first interview with Earle about Jack's epic lifeMy second interview with Earle about "The Era of Bright Expectations"Martin EdenThe Libraries of Famous Men: Jack LondonJack London's Wisdom on Living a Life of Thumos"The Symbolic Wilderness" by Gordon Mills"To Build a Fire""In a Far Country"Descriptions of Manliness: Jack LondonAoM series on Jack London's life"The Sentinel" by Arthur C.

Den sovjetiska fantastiken var en motståndshandling

Hur svarar konsten när makten förordar allt snävare ramar för både form och innehåll? Mattias Hagberg utforskar en sovjetisk, litterär motståndshandling som han döpt till sovjetisk fantastik. ESSÄ: Detta är en text där skribenten reflekterar över ett ämne eller ett verk. Åsikter som uttrycks är skribentens egna.Det börjar med ett meddelande i den sovjetiska statsradion:Här talar Moskva. Vi sänder en förordning utfärdad av Socialistiska Rådsrepublikernas Unions Högsta Sovjet. I samband med det växande välståndet och för att tillgodose de breda massornas önskningar har beslutits att förklara söndagen den 10 augusti 1960 för de Fria mordens dag.Upptakten till den ryska författaren och dissidenten Julij Daniels novell Här talar Moskva från början av 1960-talet är skrämmande. Utan förklaring deklarerar makthavarna i Sovjetunionen att alla vuxna medborgare ska vara fria att döda i stort sett vem de vill under en hel dag.Denna dag har alla sovjetmedborgare, som uppnått en ålder av sexton år, rätt att mörda varje annan medborgare med undantag av personer, som nämns under punkt tio i anmärkningarna till denna förordning. Förordningen träder i kraft den 10 augusti 1960 kl. 06oo Moskvatid och slutar att gälla kl. 24oo. Anmärkningar. Punkt ett. a) Mord förbjudes på barn under 16 år. b) uniformsklädda militärer och militärtjänstemän c) transportarbetare under tjänsteutövning och så vidare. I sin novell leker Julij Daniel lika mycket med det byråkratiska språket och med sovjetsamhällets absurditeter, som han bearbetar stalinismens terror. Textens jag, en medelålders tjänsteman, påverkas starkt av beskedet, framför allt av omgivningens snabba anpassning till partiets senaste utspel. Hans älskarinna ser en chans att bli av med sin trista make; hans närmsta vän, en illustratör i partiets tjänst, ser en möjlighet att tillverka propagandaplakat inför mordens dag och därmed ta ett kliv i karriären; och hans granne, en gammal politruk, har snabbt hittat en förklaring som placerar in det fasansfulla beskedet i en revolutionär logik:Medvetenheten har dött ut. Därför har staten rätt att göra ett brett upplagt experiment och överlämna vissa av sina funktioner i folkets händer! [-] Den här förordningen är inget annat än en logisk fortsättning av en redan påbörjad process demokratiseringsprocessen. [-] Idealet är ju [] en succesiv upplösning av den exekutiva makten i de breda folkmassorna. Julij Daniels text befinner sig någonstans mitt emellan knivskarp realism och grotesk skräck, i ett litterärt rike som aldrig fått någon egentlig etikett, men som i brist på bättre alternativ kan kallas sovjetisk fantastik. I detta rike har så vitt skilda författare som Vladimir Majakovskij, Michail Bulgakov, Andrej Platonov och bröderna Arkadij och Boris Strugatskij rört sig, författare som alla har det gemensamt att de låtit fantasin löpa fritt utan hänsyn till föreställningar om genre och stil, och än mindre till censurmyndighetens krav på litteraturen. Kanske kan man säga att detta spår i den ryskspråkiga litteraturen började med Jevgenij Zamjatin, eller möjligen med Vladimir Majakovskij, två författare som båda verkade under revolutionens inledande och febriga år, när konsten fortfarande bar på drömmar och radikala estetiska ideal. Det var då som Vladimir Majakovskij bröt sig loss ur tiden och skapade futuristiska dikter som faktiskt går att beskriva som science fiction. Och det var då som Jevgenij Zamjatin skrev sin skrämmande skildring av ett slutet, totalitärt och fullständigt planlagt samhälle, som med tiden skulle framstå som en skarp parodi på sovjetsystemet, men som vid sin tillkomst snarare hade udden riktad mot revolutionens motståndare än mot dess förkämpar.Ja, Jevgenij Zamjatins dystopiska roman Vi är på många sätt en text som fångar essensen av den sovjetiska fantastiken. Romanens jag, matematikern D-503, lever i ett samhälle som helt och hållet bannlyst fantasin till förmån för förnuftet. Allt är genomlyst, rationellt och inriktat på tillfredsställelse av fysiska behov. Medborgarna lever bakom glasväggar utan hemligheter och tilldelas sexpartners enligt en noga genomtänkt statistisk plan. Men D-503 kan inte låta bli att lockas av det irrationella. Han dras till matematikens gränser, där talens strikta logik löses upp i mystikens dimmor. För honom blir roten ur minus ett en symbol för ett annat liv, ett annat sätt att tänka och känna, där den rena lyckan, den fullständiga tillfredsställelsen, aldrig är ett mål utan snarare en återvändsgränd. Jevgenij Zamjatins budskap är klart och tydligt: Utan det som skaver, utan det som inte passar in och utan det som är oförklarligt, inget liv.Jevgenij Zamjatin slog an en ton för den ryskspråkiga litteraturen som fortsatte att ljuda i decennier. Den sovjetiska fantastiken blev ett rike för det irrationella, en plats för en fantasi som inte visste några gränser. I takt med att det sovjetiska samhället stelnade och förlorade sin radikala framtidstro, till förmån för ett ihåligt tillbakablickande, blev också denna litteratur, ja, själva fantasin i sig, en motståndshandling.När Andrej Platonov gav den sovjetiska vardagen ett absurt skimmer i Grundgropen från 1930 blev hans böcker genast bannlysta, och när Michail Bulgakov lät fantasin löpa fritt i Mästaren & Margarita från 1940 skrämde han slag på makthavarna. Det irrationella, det som inte gick att begripa, och därmed inte heller att angripa, blev ett hot.Arvet efter Jevgenij Zamjatin, Vladimir Majakovskij, Andrej Platonov och Michail Bulgakov förvaltades under efterkrigstiden framför allt av författare och filmare som tog spjärn mot science fiction-genrens konventioner, men som hade mer gemensamt med absurdister som Franz Kafka och Samuel Becket än med västerländska genreförfattare som Arthur C Clarke och Aldous Huxley.Författarbröderna Boris och Arkadij Strugatskij och filmaren Andrej Tarkovskij skapade var för sig och tillsammans poetiska mästerverk, där realismen bröts sönder under trycket av oförklarliga krafter utifrån.  Bara genom att visa upp en bild av något okänt, något som inte gick att kontrollera och inordna, hotade alla dessa berättare att slå upp ett hål i den totalitära logiken. Den ohämmade fantasin verkade ofta vara ett lika stort problem för makthavarna som sanningen. Ja, kanske till och med ett större problem eftersom sanningen gick att bemöta med lögn, medan fantasin Ja, hur ska man egentligen beskriva fantasin? Hur ska man fånga den där vaga känslan av något närvarande, men ändå undanglidande, något som existerar, men ändå inte finns?Kanske med de poetiska slutorden i Julij Daniels skräcknovell om de Fria mordens dag: Jag går och säger mig själv: Detta är din värld, ditt liv, och du är en cell, en liten del av det. Du får inte låta dig skrämmas. Du ska svara för dig själv, så svarar du också för andra. Och med ett svagt sus av yrvaket samtycke och förvånat gillande svarar mig de oändliga gatorna och torgen, kajerna, träden och husen, som likt en ofantlig, drömmande ångbåtskaravan svävar mot det okända.Mattias Hagberg, författareLitteraturJevgenij Zamjatin: Vi.

We had a great time rolling out the red carpet in Chicago, and we're excited to release the first set of interviews!The Seanan McGuire interview starts at 2:10. Seanan is a multiple Hugo award winning fantasy and sci fi author, most well known for her Wayward Children series and her Newsflesh zombie series (published under her pseudonym Mira Grant). We talked with her about how she manages to create so much content, what made her want to write about zombies, and her approach to researching her stories (she once gave herself a tapeworm to prep for a book about parasites!)The Ryka Aoki interview starts at 15:47. Ryka's breakout novel Light from Uncommon Stars came second in the Hugo voting this year. We talked with her about the book, making music, why she loves donut shops (and how she managed to include them in a sci fi novel), and queerness and what it means to be 'normal'.The interview with Joe and Gay Haldeman starts at 42:13. Joe is most famous for his novel The Forever War (which we talked with him about in a previous episode), as well as the Nebula award winning book Camouflage. We talk with Joe and Gay about Camouflage, the Bataan death march, as well as hanging out with Arthur C. Clarke, Gene Wolf, and Robert Silverberg at sci-fi conventions over the years. If you want to see photos from the red carpet, check them out on twitter or instagram! And if you want to see the rest of the interviews from ChiCon with other content creators, we'll be releasing those on our YouTube channel.

Évadnyitó adásunkban Arthur C. Clarke egyik legismertebb sci-fi regénye alapján a legendás Stanley Kubrick által 1968-ban készített 2001. Űrodisszeia című alkotást vizsgáljuk tudományos szempontból. A filmet a tudományos-fantasztikus műfaj egyik klasszikusaként tartják számon, több rétege és mélyértelmű képi szimbolikája, a művész- és közönségfilm kategóriák közti átmeneti volta az egyik legtöbbet elemzett sci-fivé tette, vizuális effektjeiért pedig Oscar-díjat kapott. Filmművészeti kifejezőerő tekintetében színhasználata is jelentős, úttörőnek mondható. https://parallaxis.blog.hu/2022/09/01/parapod_ep71 https://youtu.be/l05t64qHp5U A Parallaxis Patreon oldalán támogatóink számára még a premier előtt elérhetővé tesszük podcastjeink legújabb epizódját! https://www.patreon.com/parallaxis Podcastjeink epizódjai elérhetőek Facebookon, Soundcloud- és YouTube-csatornánkon, valamint Google Podcasts-en, iTunes-on és Spotify-on is!

Greetings friends, Jordan here welcoming you to another very special, extended episode of Divulgence! In this episode, with the fringe of the fringe and author, Troy MacLachlan, we are joined again by researcher and podcaster Sean McCann for a three-way mind-melter! Throughout our discussion, we hammer on the greatness that is Stanley Kubrick (again), as well as the greatness of his films and the brilliance behind his methods, research, messages, goals, and his direction(s). On top of all our Kubrick talk, we also brush on and get into things such as the plagued, poisoned, and corrupted mechanism/concept/place that is Hollywood, Aleister Crowley, Ian Fleming & James Bond, geo-politics, the Pink Panther, the Royal Family, Scientology, Kirk Douglas and Brigitte Bardot (and the murder of Natalie Wood), Operation Mockingbird, skull and bones, the drug-dealing playbook of the elites, Rothschilds and Rockefellers, the Catholic church, Arthur C. Clarke, rich and powerful people doing awful things, blackmail and child abuse, symbolism, MK-Ultra, the Internet losing information, psychopaths dominating the world, Bush Sr., the CIA (& Playboy), Jimmy Saville, manipulations of the Western world, the Shining and child abuse, and Russia. We also get into some topics that greatly connect to episode #007 of Divulgence, so be sure to listen to that episode (before or after this episode, it being our most successful episode to date – see link below). Also, Troy shares more on his HongKongywood career in the movie/acting business and his experiences around Asia, the glory in being one that conflicts and battles with Hollywood, Ryan O'Neil going from Hollywood golden boy to Hollywood's worst father, the fentanyl problem and China's answer to the opium wars, and Sean shares on his crush on Channing Tatum (of Magic Mike, Magic Mike 2).    ** ALL support is much appreciated, in any shape or form.

Den sovjetiska fantastiken var en motståndshandling

Hur svarar konsten när makten förordar allt snävare ramar för både form och innehåll? Mattias Hagberg utforskar en sovjetisk, litterär motståndshandling som han döpt till sovjetisk fantastik. ESSÄ: Detta är en text där skribenten reflekterar över ett ämne eller ett verk. Åsikter som uttrycks är skribentens egna.Det börjar med ett meddelande i den sovjetiska statsradion:Här talar Moskva. Vi sänder en förordning utfärdad av Socialistiska Rådsrepublikernas Unions Högsta Sovjet. I samband med det växande välståndet och för att tillgodose de breda massornas önskningar har beslutits att förklara söndagen den 10 augusti 1960 för de Fria mordens dag.Upptakten till den ryska författaren och dissidenten Julij Daniels novell Här talar Moskva från början av 1960-talet är skrämmande. Utan förklaring deklarerar makthavarna i Sovjetunionen att alla vuxna medborgare ska vara fria att döda i stort sett vem de vill under en hel dag.Denna dag har alla sovjetmedborgare, som uppnått en ålder av sexton år, rätt att mörda varje annan medborgare med undantag av personer, som nämns under punkt tio i anmärkningarna till denna förordning. Förordningen träder i kraft den 10 augusti 1960 kl. 06oo Moskvatid och slutar att gälla kl. 24oo. Anmärkningar. Punkt ett. a) Mord förbjudes på barn under 16 år. b) uniformsklädda militärer och militärtjänstemän c) transportarbetare under tjänsteutövning och så vidare. I sin novell leker Julij Daniel lika mycket med det byråkratiska språket och med sovjetsamhällets absurditeter, som han bearbetar stalinismens terror. Textens jag, en medelålders tjänsteman, påverkas starkt av beskedet, framför allt av omgivningens snabba anpassning till partiets senaste utspel. Hans älskarinna ser en chans att bli av med sin trista make; hans närmsta vän, en illustratör i partiets tjänst, ser en möjlighet att tillverka propagandaplakat inför mordens dag och därmed ta ett kliv i karriären; och hans granne, en gammal politruk, har snabbt hittat en förklaring som placerar in det fasansfulla beskedet i en revolutionär logik:Medvetenheten har dött ut. Därför har staten rätt att göra ett brett upplagt experiment och överlämna vissa av sina funktioner i folkets händer! [-] Den här förordningen är inget annat än en logisk fortsättning av en redan påbörjad process demokratiseringsprocessen. [-] Idealet är ju [] en succesiv upplösning av den exekutiva makten i de breda folkmassorna. Julij Daniels text befinner sig någonstans mitt emellan knivskarp realism och grotesk skräck, i ett litterärt rike som aldrig fått någon egentlig etikett, men som i brist på bättre alternativ kan kallas sovjetisk fantastik. I detta rike har så vitt skilda författare som Vladimir Majakovskij, Michail Bulgakov, Andrej Platonov och bröderna Arkadij och Boris Strugatskij rört sig, författare som alla har det gemensamt att de låtit fantasin löpa fritt utan hänsyn till föreställningar om genre och stil, och än mindre till censurmyndighetens krav på litteraturen. Kanske kan man säga att detta spår i den ryskspråkiga litteraturen började med Jevgenij Zamjatin, eller möjligen med Vladimir Majakovskij, två författare som båda verkade under revolutionens inledande och febriga år, när konsten fortfarande bar på drömmar och radikala estetiska ideal. Det var då som Vladimir Majakovskij bröt sig loss ur tiden och skapade futuristiska dikter som faktiskt går att beskriva som science fiction. Och det var då som Jevgenij Zamjatin skrev sin skrämmande skildring av ett slutet, totalitärt och fullständigt planlagt samhälle, som med tiden skulle framstå som en skarp parodi på sovjetsystemet, men som vid sin tillkomst snarare hade udden riktad mot revolutionens motståndare än mot dess förkämpar.Ja, Jevgenij Zamjatins dystopiska roman Vi är på många sätt en text som fångar essensen av den sovjetiska fantastiken. Romanens jag, matematikern D-503, lever i ett samhälle som helt och hållet bannlyst fantasin till förmån för förnuftet. Allt är genomlyst, rationellt och inriktat på tillfredsställelse av fysiska behov. Medborgarna lever bakom glasväggar utan hemligheter och tilldelas sexpartners enligt en noga genomtänkt statistisk plan. Men D-503 kan inte låta bli att lockas av det irrationella. Han dras till matematikens gränser, där talens strikta logik löses upp i mystikens dimmor. För honom blir roten ur minus ett en symbol för ett annat liv, ett annat sätt att tänka och känna, där den rena lyckan, den fullständiga tillfredsställelsen, aldrig är ett mål utan snarare en återvändsgränd. Jevgenij Zamjatins budskap är klart och tydligt: Utan det som skaver, utan det som inte passar in och utan det som är oförklarligt, inget liv.Jevgenij Zamjatin slog an en ton för den ryskspråkiga litteraturen som fortsatte att ljuda i decennier. Den sovjetiska fantastiken blev ett rike för det irrationella, en plats för en fantasi som inte visste några gränser. I takt med att det sovjetiska samhället stelnade och förlorade sin radikala framtidstro, till förmån för ett ihåligt tillbakablickande, blev också denna litteratur, ja, själva fantasin i sig, en motståndshandling.När Andrej Platonov gav den sovjetiska vardagen ett absurt skimmer i Grundgropen från 1930 blev hans böcker genast bannlysta, och när Michail Bulgakov lät fantasin löpa fritt i Mästaren & Margarita från 1940 skrämde han slag på makthavarna. Det irrationella, det som inte gick att begripa, och därmed inte heller att angripa, blev ett hot.Arvet efter Jevgenij Zamjatin, Vladimir Majakovskij, Andrej Platonov och Michail Bulgakov förvaltades under efterkrigstiden framför allt av författare och filmare som tog spjärn mot science fiction-genrens konventioner, men som hade mer gemensamt med absurdister som Franz Kafka och Samuel Becket än med västerländska genreförfattare som Arthur C Clarke och Aldous Huxley.Författarbröderna Boris och Arkadij Strugatskij och filmaren Andrej Tarkovskij skapade var för sig och tillsammans poetiska mästerverk, där realismen bröts sönder under trycket av oförklarliga krafter utifrån.  Bara genom att visa upp en bild av något okänt, något som inte gick att kontrollera och inordna, hotade alla dessa berättare att slå upp ett hål i den totalitära logiken. Den ohämmade fantasin verkade ofta vara ett lika stort problem för makthavarna som sanningen. Ja, kanske till och med ett större problem eftersom sanningen gick att bemöta med lögn, medan fantasin Ja, hur ska man egentligen beskriva fantasin? Hur ska man fånga den där vaga känslan av något närvarande, men ändå undanglidande, något som existerar, men ändå inte finns?Kanske med de poetiska slutorden i Julij Daniels skräcknovell om de Fria mordens dag: Jag går och säger mig själv: Detta är din värld, ditt liv, och du är en cell, en liten del av det. Du får inte låta dig skrämmas. Du ska svara för dig själv, så svarar du också för andra. Och med ett svagt sus av yrvaket samtycke och förvånat gillande svarar mig de oändliga gatorna och torgen, kajerna, träden och husen, som likt en ofantlig, drömmande ångbåtskaravan svävar mot det okända.Mattias Hagberg, författareLitteraturJevgenij Zamjatin: Vi.

David M. Kelly writes fast-paced, near-future sci-fi thrillers with engaging characters, cynical humor, and plausible science. He is the author of the Joe Ballen series, Logan's World series, and the Hyperia Jones series, and has been published in Canadian SF magazine Neo-opsis.David's interest in science and technology began early. At the age of six his parents allowed him to stay up late into the night to watch the television broadcast of Neil Armstrong stepping on to the surface of the moon. From that day he was hooked on everything related to science and space.An avid reader, he worked his way through the contents of the mobile library that visited his street, progressing through YA titles (or ‘juveniles' as they were known back then) on to the classics of Robert Heinlein, Isaac Asimov, Arthur C. Clarke, and Harry Harrison.David worked for many years in project management and software development. Along the way his interests have included IPSC combat (target) pistol shooting, crew chief on a drag racing team, and several years as bass player/vocalist in a heavy rock band. He also managed to fit in some real work in manual jobs from digging ditches and assembly lines jobs to loading trucks in a haulage company.http://davidmkelly.comBorn in Simcoe, Ontario, in 1965, I was raised and still reside in Cambridge, Ontario. I began writing circa 1974, a bored child looking for something to while away the long, summertime days. My penchant for reading, 'The Hardy Boys,' led to an inspiration one sweltering summer afternoon, when my best friend and I thought, ‘We could write one of those.' And so, I did.As my reading horizons broadened, so did my writing. 'Star Wars' inspired me to write a 600-page novel about outer space that caught the attention of a special teacher, Mr. Woodley, who encouraged me to keep on writing.A trip to a local book store saw the proprietor introduce me to Stephen R. Donaldson and Terry Brooks. My writing life was forever changed.At 17, I left high school to join the working world to support my first son. For the next twenty-two years I worked as a shipper at a local bakery. At the age of 36, I went back to high school to complete my education. After graduating with honors at the age of thirty-nine, I became a member of our local Police Service, and worked for 12 years in the provincial court system.In early 2017, I resigned from the Police Service to pursue my love of writing full-time. With the help and support of my lovely wife Caroline and our 5 children, I have now realized my boyhood dream. http://richardhstephens.comThe Douglas Coleman Show now offers audio and video promotional packages for music artists as well as video promotional packages for authors.

As regular Unstoppable Mindset listeners know, here we do not at all simply believe “vision” means eyesight. Dr. Carlos Archilla-Cady is a perfect example of why this is so. Dr. Archilla-Cady works today as an anesthesiologist in Florida, but during his life he went through a period of being totally blind. He never let his eye condition stop him as you will hear. Carlos began his career working as a medical officer for the U.S. navy. It was later that Glaucoma began to affect his eyesight. However, as you will hear, even this situation which might stop most people Carlos worked through his depression and fear. He allowed himself to undergo several medical procedures that eventually restored most of his sight. Through everything, Carlos' vision never failed at all. He illustrates a precept I mention in my book, Thunder Dog, that says, “never let your sight get in the way of your vision”. During this episode Carlos will tell you of his dreams to participate in space travel as well as where he believes space will play a part in the lives of all of us. Take a listen and hear a man who truly has “unstoppable vision”. Thanks for listening and please don't forget to give us a 5 star rating after hearing Carlos. Thanks for listening and I hope you will let me know your thoughts about our episode and the Unstoppable Mindset podcast by emailing me at michaelhi@accessibe.com.   About the Guest:  Dr. Carlos Archilla-Cady is first and foremost a husband and proud father of two children. He is a Pediatric Anesthesiologist working at Nemours Children's Hospital in Orlando, Florida.

He recently obtained a Global Executive MBA from the IESE Business School. He is a healthcare leader, supporter of medical missions, researcher and frequent keynote speaker at national and international conferences. He is a veteran of the US Navy and a patron of the arts and culture. He has experienced visual disabilities in the recent past.

And I think that what he has to say will resonate and kind of help us all so Carlos, welcome to unstoppable mindset. How are you?  Dr. Carlos Archilla-Cady  02:21 I'm doing well. Michael is truly being an honor that you invited me to share this time with you and your listeners and viewers and readers today. Michael Hingson  02:32 Well, thanks for for being here and giving us a chance to get to know you better. So, as I usually kind of start these episodes, tell us a little bit about you growing up and kind of where you came from, and all that sort of stuff. Okay, how's that for a technical question? That sort of stuff?  Dr. Carlos Archilla-Cady  02:50 Yeah, of course. Find yourself first. So you're right. You know, I really enjoy defining myself as what I do in life, my values. I'm a father of two amazing children, great husband, very loving family and always want to kind of start defending yourself. And within that context, in terms of where I come from, I was born and raised in Puerto Rico. My family was one of the Wilson in the 1980s moved to the Orlando center, Florida area. In right now there's a half a million Puerto Ricans in the area. That was kind of the first wave that moved into the mainland. So the past 30 something years Orlando has been my home, but because of other commitments, in terms of education, and also military commitments have been literally around the world. I still consider Orlando my home and my place of birth Puerto Rico. Michael Hingson  03:49 So you spent time I think in the Navy, right? Dr. Carlos Archilla-Cady  03:53 I spend 12 years in the Navy, I was commissioned some medical officer in 1988. In the body, they essentially they pay for full scholarship that pay for my medical school. In at the end of medical school, I had to pay back with my time. And when I finished my medical school, they gave me a deferment. To do my residency. I was a pediatric resident for in Orlando. And during my second year, they decided to the numbers have dropped and they needed me to to come on board. So my destination was an aircraft carrier that was already deployed in the Mediterranean. Is this about 1993 spent three years in the Persian Gulf and in the Bosnian war, supporting the missions during those years. Michael Hingson  04:47 What is it like being on an aircraft carrier? I've heard it described as really just literally a small city but what's it like? Dr. Carlos Archilla-Cady  04:55 This a small set of people don't realize that, that how many people we actually half on board. So the carrier by itself is about 4500 people. This is the people that are assigned to the carry in this different capacities. My capacity was medical officer, there's about three to 400 officers, the rest and enlisted personnel. But when the carrier gets deployed, and it grows at sea, we get an additional 3000 People one time, we have 4000 people. So there was a period of time that we have the air when you think about the people with the planes, and the maintenance, and the pilots and all the support team, but also 1000 Marines that were attached to the carrier that time. So for periods of our few months, we have 1500 people. And I enjoy. That's the part that I enjoyed the most about my military career was being deployed in the carrier, we had, you know, definitely place to eat, we have a post office on board, we have a church, we have different type of services in in our chapel, we have everything that you can imagine we have our own TV station. So we are very self independent unit. Michael Hingson  06:16 So did they did they show a lot of like us programming. And of course, like most TV stations, did they show a lot of reruns Dr. Carlos Archilla-Cady  06:27 tried to remember the TV, I remember, that was not something that we all did, actually, the the TV station that we had, that we have our own programming was very popular, because of course, you know, you'd like to see the people that you see every day in a different capacity. But there were movies that were shown. And there were, of course, the news. And I think one of the things that I like the most and sometimes I miss is being deployed during a period of time that it was a war going on. And we were part of it. And we were supporting those operations, that you felt that you were part of history. So when you saw the news, and they were talking about something, that was not something that was happening somewhere out there, he was actually you in the middle of it. And that that kind of excitement was just something that sometimes I miss. And also I think the way that we work as a team, the work that we support each other the camaraderie with the other shipmates, I think you know, out of the many things that have shaped my leadership style, I will say that my military career has been one of the most influential factors in shaping who I am today as a leader. Michael Hingson  07:40 When you had those 4000 extra people on board, the the people who were not normally part of the ship complement, did that, did that create real challenges? Or Did everyone get along because you're all trained to work as a team, or what Dr. Carlos Archilla-Cady  07:56 we all work to work as a team, maybe people don't realize that our aircraft carrier is an industrial complex, you have in the bottom of the ship, you have two nuclear reactors, to power the ship. And in the top of the ship, you have an airport, with 85 planes taking on and off 20 to 24 hours a day. So we all have a specific function, not only in our own departments and our own roles, but we also have a function to protect the ship. So we get into a situation that there is something that is threatening us, we actually have to go and something's called general quarters, which is a significant major threat to the ship. I mean, everybody has to go and battle and then staff their battle dressing stations. That means when there's a threat to the ship, everybody had an area sign in order to support what you will think operations that might lead into an attack. And we did that one time we were crossing the Strait of Hormuz, entering the Persian Gulf. And there were some Iranian ships or were too close to the ship. And then we went into general quarters because we didn't know there were there was a hostile action being taken against in the other time that we went was actually a submarine that was getting very close from the bottom of the ship and then got within a certain perimeter. And we didn't know that that's the purpose of that submarine was to gather information in terms of intelligence, what was a hostile action? So we went into general quarters that time. Michael Hingson  09:33 What did what was your position in general quarters? Dr. Carlos Archilla-Cady  09:37 So I I'm I staff and lead the forward part of the ship. So you think about it, the ship is in different compartments. And if you have an attack in one section of the ship to kind of seal off the section from the rest of the ship so the fire or the damage doesn't spread to the rest of the ship. So that area They have to be fully manned from the course every single logistics engineering services. But in my case, I was there to support, medical support, so anybody that is wounded, and to administer care. Michael Hingson  10:18 So when your tour of duty was over, what did you do? Dr. Carlos Archilla-Cady  10:22 So well, my duty was as a full, full time, let's call active duty, decided to just go ahead and finish my training. And that was in Norfolk, Virginia. And I was trying to decide what specialty Should I just go back and finish pediatrics, or do some of the other areas my intent at that time was to do emergency medicine for pediatrics. And my second choice was to do pediatric anesthesia. The options in pediatric anesthesia were better at that time that emergency emergency medicine, and I was lucky to be accepted at the Johns Hopkins University. That's what I did my, my training in sociology and pediatric anesthesiology in my department was combined with critical care. So we were, you know, what's a very comprehensive program that cover all those three areas. Michael Hingson  11:20 So, you went to Hopkins, and you kind of worked through that and, and we're an anesthesiologist, so you're or what exactly did you do? Dr. Carlos Archilla-Cady  11:32 Yes, well, I finished as a pediatric anesthesiologist. And after my time in Hopkins, I decided to stay there, they definitely have very good professional options if I stay within the institution. But my family was in Florida, there was a significant family poll. At that time my, my daughter has was born she was six months old. And I wanted her to be closer to you know, the grandparents and the family. So we decided just to go ahead and move to Florida and I started working in Palm Beach County, so in South Florida for many years. Michael Hingson  12:09 And you're still there. Dr. Carlos Archilla-Cady  12:12 Welcome senator from South Florida, I went to Central Florida, which is actually my home. But you know, it was I was the closest to Florida to Orlando at that time, being in Palm Beach County. And so I moved to back to Orlando, about 2002 timeframe. And I've been pretty much here since then, with some periods of time that I've gone somewhere else. I went back to South Florida for 18 months to develop a program there and then came back. So it has been a little bit of in and out period in during my time in South Florida. That's when I discover that I have the type of glaucoma that I that I do. So the diagnosis was made in the year 2000 While I was in South Florida. Michael Hingson  13:00 So that led to you obviously becoming some interest in the whole issue of vision, vision impairments and so on. So what happened to you? Why, how much were you involved with dealing with that glaucoma? Dr. Carlos Archilla-Cady  13:19 Oh, significantly, I think the my journey this is now 22 years of experience in glaucoma and all the complications from that truly has shaped my life forever. And it's try it's hard to kind of summarize 22 years of the medical treatment, the many chapters that I went through, but I can go try to go briefly at the beginning of this tell the story that was ironically working with ophthalmologists and have the melodic surgery for children. And I doctor in at the end of the day, you know, everything was well. I was on my way home and driving home. I started seeing that my vision when white like a very dense fog. And this acid was time becoming worse I pull the car over awaited he really became a really wiped out in over about say about 20 minutes division recovered, then I was able to go home. And at that point I just decided to call the same of the monologist that I was working with that day and say, this happened. I knew that something was wrong. I just didn't know why. And he said, No, you need to come and be seen immediately. So I get up on car, go to his office, and he start examining me doing the measurements. And then you get the famous home. And you say well, this is not a good sign. I know something is wrong. I just don't know why and I was very anxious for him to tell me. So at that time, the buy pressures were in the high 50s. What is normal for intraocular pressure is somewhere between 10 and 20. And he monitor very aggressively we did four drops and one medication called Diamox. And my vision and my condition was stable until like about year 2004. When I started losing vision on my right eye, and when that happened was, I was told, you know, you need to go to the best centers for ice, which happened to be Miami, which is not too far away, I was in Orlando at that time. And when there and they decided to do surgery intervention, they place a valve in both of my eyes, and this valve controls my pressure. So it's a passive mechanism. Once the pressure goes above 12, the valve opens up and drain fluid from the eye to the posterior part of your eye, and the pressures are normalized. And a year later, the same problem that I was having with the right, I started playing with my left eye, which is my dominant eye, we all we all have a dominant eye. In the precious we're into the 70s. In when people try to say how can I compare 70 pressure to something that I know better, imagining your blood pressure that is normally 120 over 80 being 500 over 300. That's the best analogy that I can get. So the word excessively high. But my I actually was pretty good, pretty good shape, you know, they didn't have any problems. And when I decided to implant another valve in my left eye, and I lost vision, I went to disability for about a couple of months. And I was doing well until about 2013 When I started having cornea damage likely secondary to the placement of the valve and the tubes going into my eyes. And I had my first cornea transplant in 2013 in both eyes. And I was in disability bow, two months and another three months. So it was a prolonged period of time. So when I tell my story, I tell people, it was not just one episode of dealing with visual impairment, it was multiple episodes at different times. Michael Hingson  17:23 You had a lot going on. And you eventually had to have corneal transplants and so on. How mentally were you dealing with all of that? Dr. Carlos Archilla-Cady  17:37 During my first set of transplant? I did well, you know, I'm one of those very optimistic, like a realistic, optimistic and the optimist and is something that cannot drive me forward. So I felt pretty confident that this was going to be it that these transplants, were going to give me long term control of my vision. And I was going to reintegrate what I was doing, which I did in 2013. But that didn't last too long. In 2018, which is five years later, I started gradually losing my vision more, the white out they can score cornea, edema, that led into my second set of transplants. And that's what was out in disability for about three months at that time. And, again, you know, this optimism that I have was very good until six months later that dust settled transplant failed one more time in then then then I said, Okay, this is this is different. This is this is a repeated failure, something is not quite right. And when I talked to my medical team, there was no guarantee. So they will given me that if we were to do another third set of transplants, that that was going to be the solution long term. But that was the answer that we had at that time with the technology that we knew at that time. And I think that was probably my lowest point I got by before my third set of transplant that I've received few months after that. I went to zero we're talking about totally blind. All I can see was motion in front of me. And I started kind of questioning my faith. I started questioning the why me I say questioning, what is it going to happen? This is going to be permanent. I decided to do a pilgrimage to Paris had been there before, went to basilica on top of the highest peak in the city of Paris. That is called sacred Kerr, which I felt something spiritually is special about that place. When there, you think about a pilgrimage. And they said, you know, you will be good you see when our priests but we don't actually have priests here they have an in another church is called our Motherland, which is Mary Magdalene, where the remains of Mary Magdalene are in the altar of the church. For the ironically, the person that was running the church was a priest from Boston. And so he reconnected right away. And he administering a Minister May the environmental deep, sick, which is the first time that I've been annoyed, is one of the sacraments in the Catholic faith. And when that happened, I started questioning. So what is going to happen next, and we're talking about miracle, and they start questioning myself, Am I ready for a miracle? He sounds wonderful that I can be sure that this will go away. And I just didn't know what a miracle will mean for me. So I remember asking him at the end. And he says some things I've something that I carried for the, for the rest of my life. He said, miracle is very different different people, what do you define miracle might be different to another person, define a miracle. And keep in mind that your miracle might be that you will have the strength to go through what you're about to go through. And so I came back, I had my third set of transplants. And right before that, I decided, you know, what, I stepped down on my leadership position, which was hard. I felt like I was letting people down in my department in the hospital that I have worked for for so many years. And I took an indefinite leave of absence, because I didn't know how long this will take. Eventually, the leave of absence and disability lasted for 10 months. And then, and then I will say that that was probably the most difficult time of my life. But at the same time, things, amazing things happened to me, that had transformed my life forever. When I had the third set of transplant Dr. Carlos Archilla-Cady  22:27 at the end of the surgery, my you know, we decided to do my dominant eye first, which is my left eye. My vision, the right eye, was very compromised by the fact of the corneal edema that was happening. In the end, I needed a transplant, but they didn't want to do the two transplants. On the same day, they usually spaced them out, just in case there's a complication or an infection. So that transplant occur about three months after that. And my surgeon said, We are lucky we got very young donors, we have a very high number of cells. So we got really, really good cornea tissue. And I said, Great, she said, but this time, you're gonna be in bed three days, a strict bed rest, compared to the usual 24 hours, they put a bubble behind your new transplant really attaches into your cornea a little bit easier. So I have to be I couldn't do anything. I you know, my husband has to feed me bathe me? You don't you're not I had not developed at that time, the coping mechanisms when accurately I go from somebody that is fully able to now fully or unable, at least from my perspective, and in a thing the one thing that carry me through those 10 months with some things that happen in the beginning definitely my family was extremely supportive. But also my faith really was very supportive during that period of time. And if I may share the story, it was day number two I was going to see the doctor day number three in the morning and then her my eyes you know bandage and couldn't see. In all I was thinking is when they remove this bandages, I don't know much I'm going to be able to see is it the transplant successful? Do we need to do something else? If this is going to work or not? I mean, it has so many questions. And in day number two, I was laying in bed in the hotel that was close by the hospital. And I started feeling I was listening to music music was very healing to me that's kind of it I still use music as a way to heal and meditate. And as I was listening to music, the music started fading In a way, in a fail, my body was getting very light in a failed this wonderful feeling that people called grace. And I started levitating. In this episode lasted for about three minutes. At the beginning of, I'm gonna be honest, I was very scared. And then I realized what was happening, and then became very peaceful once the episode, and I knew in my heart that I was very confident the next day I was going to get good news. So, when I woke up that morning, and went to a doctor, even before the doctor examined me and remove the bandages, I had a very strong feeling in confidence that this was a successful operation. And at that time, I was just saying, Okay, if you're gonna do this one, does this happen in a very special place, you know, like a US holding the hands of the people that you love looking at sunset or sunrise and special place in the world. And I said, you know why? So they have to happen in a hotel, in a Spring Hill by Marriott, which is not a bad hotel. I mean, it had free breakfast. And when did you pick up a better hotel, you start going through this kind of silly, silly thoughts. And I think the the the message is that we have to be open to that. And that can happen at any time in any moment. There is no special place, we have that capability within us. Michael Hingson  26:40 I gather that when the bandages came off, you did have a successful operation? Dr. Carlos Archilla-Cady  26:48 Yes, when they took the advantages, and they look at my lesion was somewhere between 2100 2150, which is for a newly open AI, in, you know, definitely craft being implanted. It was pretty good, I never had that good have a vision after a transplant, this is my third time with a transplant. And after that, I will say that I was just very energized, I said, Okay, maybe I will need an indefinite leave, maybe I can come back earlier. Of course, you know, you're you're a physician, so you know that you have this kind of honeymoon period. And then after that some healing process was going to happen. So in the days to follow my, my condition starting to deteriorate, meaning that my visual acuity what I had that day worsen, which is pretty normal, as the inflammation process started taking place. In over those 10 months, I think you can go through all five stages of grieving, I will say that I kind of skip the denial phase, because I knew exactly what was happening. So I guess the beginning was more this kind of mixture of anger and bargaining and the anger was more kind of why me. One of the things that I loved the most and I've been involved with, with the movie industry and the independent side and, and working with documentaries and bringing social justice documentary from all around the world to us audiences, and then just say the thing that I love the most, I might not be able to do it anymore, if I completely lost my vision. And so so having the process of anger that follow with the bargaining in the bargaining is, it sounds a little bit silly. And I don't know, some of your listeners may relate to this. But when I saw with my limited vision, someone that was either hearing in fear someone with mobility issues or was in a wheelchair, someone that had all the type of disability, you start saying, oh, would it be better to have that type of disability that the one that I have, and I felt bad, horrible for thinking that way. But that was I guess, part of the grieving process. In that they started my vision started getting a little bit better. But it took a long period of time. And definitely I went through a process of significant depression over a period of time I need to see mental health. And I think that was very instrumental in my recovery. And I did what we considered the standard mental health counselor and professional, but also alternative ways to for for mental health. And I had a coach a life coach. And I started telling her this my story and in I started kind of sharing a little bit of some of the visions that I was having during this period of time about what will be next what will be the next chapter in my life and I started having this vision and this dreams about that I was going to some point. Tell people about my story and power people inspire people, that I was going to be a motivational speaker or something in the similar, but I was going to share the story and that story was going to be inspirational to others. And she said to me, pretty much that's the same feeling and premonition that I have before meeting I met you today. And during our session. And another thing that I was trying to save in, I felt that I was in a safe environment with her. Since I had that episode of grace that I have maybe another couple of those, I started feeling that my tactile senses and hearing senses were very heightened. And I know that's normal, when you have one sense that is compromised, the other ones tend to overcome that by getting stronger. But when to the point that I could, I could feel the energy of a tree of the ocean of the people around me. And it was something new to me that I didn't have the capability maybe was something she always said to me, you I think you were born with that gift with that gift never surface until now. So I think I think that was very instrumental to kind of maybe be able to get that that help. And I think that's when I decided to go through what we call the acceptance phase. And I think that is what really carried me forward to today. Michael Hingson  31:28 How did you get involved with having a life coach, what made you do that? Dr. Carlos Archilla-Cady  31:33 Well, I heard many people about that. And the ironic part that she happened to be my front door neighbor. And so of course, the the access, the easy access really helped because I just, you know, we just have to visit each other. And we were all neighbors, and we already had developed a level of trust, as neighbors and friends not in that kind of capacity. And I knew about the word that she has done for others. So I felt very comfortable opening up to her because we already have that friendship neighbor relationship. So I said it was quite easy. But it's it could be very difficult for many people to seek mental health in general, and even more alternative sources of mental health. And part of that acceptance. I mean, I think that kind of helped me to go to the acceptance phase. And one of the things that I wanted to do is kind of reach out to the families of my daughters, something that I've never done before I have multiple transplant from from other donors. So I contacted the lions Bank, which is the one the largest I tissue bank in the country, and say, Is it possible that I can contact the donors? I know, I heard that you can do that. But I just never thought that I was able to do that. They said absolutely, the way it works is very low expectation. And we'll contact them and they will be the ones to decide if they want to receive communication from you. And if they want to establish some contact we're talking about this is months after third passing, which is a sensitive period, I find out that my donor from my left cornea was a 28 year old young man that died in an accidental way. And my donor of my right eye was a 46 year old woman also healthy that tie in an accidental fashion. So my the lions bank contacted me and said would you like to hear from the from one of the recipients? And they said yes. So I said okay, let me just write a letter, imagining the emotions I was going through what am I going to say? I mean, I wanted to say so many things about how the gift of life transformed my life. So I decided to send excuse me to kind of discuss the issue of legacy. So I wrote him a letter. And I said to them, I would like to thank you for your decision to donate. In the case of the the one of my daughters who he was a young guy, 20 years old. I said I I would like to thank you for your decision to donate his organs. And this is a beautiful example of love and courage. And I would like you to know that his legacy lives and continues to impact the lives of many people. And it's my duty to honor his legacy with my life's mission to care for those who are ill, and advocates for those who had no voice. And I said to them, it has been said the legacy of sowing the seeds in a garden that you will never see. Please know that discarding is now in full bloom, and leaves strong in the lives of many like me, that have been touched by the gifts of life of your loved one. They received a letter, they wrote back, that they were very moved by my letter, but they were not ready to make contact with me. And I said, I feel so energized that I was able to kind of convey the message to them. And it was something that an experience that I will carry for the rest of my life. Michael Hingson  35:38 Well, and have you heard any more from them? Or? Dr. Carlos Archilla-Cady  35:44 No, I've recently tried to establish additional contact. But I'm still I mean, we're talking about when I have years, where we've maybe we'll maybe we'll do it again. Actually, the lion lions bank will be the feature recipient story for the annual report that is coming out in May, that may trigger them to receive a copy and maybe, maybe we know, so it's a possibility. Yes, Michael Hingson  36:15 time will tell, but it is tough. And everyone advances and deals with these kinds of challenging situations in different ways. So you have, you've been the recipient, you've been able to reach out. And of course, it was a pretty traumatic and challenging time for you. So I would assume that even you writing those letters had to be somewhat therapeutic and helpful to you? Dr. Carlos Archilla-Cady  36:43 Oh, absolutely. I, especially when I did, you know, you want to try it, I wanted to write like a 10 page letter saying everything that how they this gift of life, transformed my life, and probably the life of many others that probably received other organs. I didn't know that part, these other organs were also donated. But you know, you'd have to be brief, and you want to kind of deliver your message. And for me, I was very comforted by the fact that they know that what their decision that they made, there was very courageous in a very difficult time, had transformed, transformed least my life, and I'm pretty sure they live for many others. Everyone that that becomes an organ donor. And not on average, you save a people's lives. So I know there were probably more than one person that were transformed by the gift of life. And this kind of acceptance can all kind of gave me the strength to say, you know, I'm going to overcome this, and I'm gonna go back to work and I have to give it time. And but I have to kind of the, I need to create a plan B. So my plan B was to say, well, since I've been an administrator, I can do that full time. I don't need to have the vision acuity that you need to have to do clinical. So enroll in a global executive MBA program did a business degree, which I just finished in March 18. And believe it or not, right now, the plan B could be compliant A, but at least of your comfort there have all options available to them. Michael Hingson  38:25 So do you do you work as an anesthesiologist today? Dr. Carlos Archilla-Cady  38:28 Yeah. So after 10 months, I return. Ironically, I returned to work March of 2020, this same week that the pandemic broke out. And I was able to give us in some way helpful because I think the a lot of the cancellations and the prioritize, right? prioritizing the care for those that were having covered related complications helped me in two ways, you know, the case law was lower, so help me reintegrate to the, to the kind of work that I did. So you were saying, Yeah, I went back to work. I was clear by my doctors to return to work in a part time capacity in March of 2020. Yeah, and which are everybody knows on March 2020, is when the pandemic broke out. And he helped me into into ways as there were so many cancellations to prioritize the care of patient would cover then the related complications. It was he helped me a little bit of reintegrate to my my my work a little bit easier. And in top of that, the fact that my specialty was probably the best specialty best suited to the needs of people had at that time were the experts in respiratory management, ventilator management, airway management, skills that are very, they were very important the early stages of the pandemic. So I felt that it was energize and even give me a sense of Continue the healing process, something that continues even in your career to go back to work, you can still continue your healing process. So gave me this energy to re enter gate to the kind of work that I was doing as an anesthesiologist in a quicker way. But also with a greater sense of purpose. You know, my skills are very well needed right now. And I'm making a very big difference to what my the hospital and our community is going through. Michael Hingson  40:30 So a couple questions. One, I want to go back to life coaching, do you still see her? Do you still do life coaching? Dr. Carlos Archilla-Cady  40:38 It's interesting that I did it for some time. And you know how life is you know, things get busier and wanting to business school. So I was doing 100% school and 100% work. So cannot the the mental health of the continuation of that has taken a backseat backseat. Now my clinical follow up, I mean, I go to Miami, which is about three hours drive or, or half an hour plane ride. I go there every quarter every three months. So I pray I have prioritized for the past two years. My last evaluation was about a week or two ago, it was pristine, they said my transplant looked phenomenal. And another thing happened was if I may say another spiritual story, the week before my appointment with my team, my transplant team in Miami. I was in Israel, and I have been in Israel for a couple of times before with the military. This time was more vacation. You know, my last day in Jerusalem, I knew about the blind man from Jericho. And we have been in Jericho the day before. And I said where did this miracle happen that is being told in the Bible. And they say he happened in this pool that is in the kind of outskirts of the city of Jerusalem, the lowest point of the city, where historically all faced the Jewish faith, the Muslim faith, and the Christian faith, all those people will gather in this pool to climb the mountain to go to the top of the hill where the city of Jerusalem is located. So what's the sacred place for all of them? In and that's kind of the reason why the miracle happened there. Because the people that had disabilities and in blindness was a no no cannot go into the city, they will not consider him worthy of going into the city of Jerusalem. And the they said the problem yes about doing this today is because is a bad storm. And it's raining when I say raining, it doesn't mean they're much. But when the rain is major flooding, because they used to significant amount of rain. And it was raining pouring and said we can go there. But please know that they might not let you go in because that pool gets flooded very easily. It they don't let people go there because they can have accidents. So I said well, let's go you know, I'm one of those that determined very determined person. So we go there. And as soon as we have right, the rain stop, and they led me in and I went to the pool cannot recreate it the the story from the Bible about putting putting some mod in your eyes and then going into the pool and wiping your eyes off from the dirt. And when I did that, Southern the song came out and he was bright and low carb and he was bright. And I felt something special. And I said okay, I need to I was on my way to Tel Aviv. Let's go back to Tel Aviv. As soon as I left the area, the rain started pouring one more time. And I'm telling the story because it's similar to the story that I received right before when I get and I got the third set of transplants to say, Hey, your evaluation that you're going to have next week is gonna be okay. So it was kind of spiritual but also very comforting. And, and I think all these things that I'm telling you right now, kind of lead into what I am today, which is for the first time I feel comfortable and empowered to tell my story. And my my hope is for people to know that I think by now, people that have been listening they can tell that this was not a one time this is multiple episodes of visual impairment, multiple setbacks, in keeping yourself with the hope and the determination that you are going to overcome this. And to let people know that today, I am very fully functional on 2025. And I have been able to overcome this. Going back to your question about mental health advice your life, a life coach, I think now that I'm telling this story, I'm going through this, also a little bit of emotional time, because I feel more vulnerable as I tell my story, but at the same time is has been very healing and very empowering. So I think I need to kind of find that support again. Michael Hingson  45:34 What is the difference between a life coach and a therapist, do you have a thought about that Dr. Carlos Archilla-Cady  45:41 the life coach can know is if it's not a licensed mental health counselor, and that could be you know, psychologists, it could be a physician, it could be a licensed clinical social worker. So this many people that can be licensed, so they're not licensed, they're just more coaches. So they're not licensed in providing mental health counseling. But they also have provide other ways of therapeutic regimens that probably you might not get from traditional medicine. One of the ones things that are discussed with the life coaches, I felt for many years, the in then, after this experiences happened, I, I feel the power of my hands having the ability to, to heal. And in sometimes there's some things that I cannot explain that I put my hands over a person of some time a plant, and something's change after I did that. And she was telling telling me about traditional alternative way of healing, which is called Reiki, something that is done in Japan, which is pretty much getting the energy of your body to go into your hands and place it in the area that needs healing. And that kind of that kind of energy. Encouraging, encourages healing cells to kind of go from different parts of your body to go to that area and promote healing. And so that was one of the techniques that I use while I was healing and what I was doing disability to help myself heal is to do some of that Reiki technique. Michael Hingson  47:28 Well, let me ask you this, how is your view of blindness changed? Having gone through all of the medical changes and so on that you've done? Dr. Carlos Archilla-Cady  47:39 I think, you know, leads to the second question is how my life evolved and changed since I decided to tell my story. And telling the story is for me to admitting that I'm a person that has been disabled, that have some minimal limitations right now. And I have the potential to be fully disabled in the future. So number one, are not afraid to be blind anymore. I know that this experience has empowered me that the same way that I overcame, the medical challenges and the multiple setbacks, I will overcome if blindness were to occur. And I started kind of thinking about what people with disabilities, blindness, mobility, hearing impairment, neuro disabilities, the, you know, the, the spectrum is so big right now, we have 1.3 billion people in the world with some type of disability. This is about 20% of the population in the world, in a study kind of uncovering the benefits, and that people with disability brings to life to an organization to employment. And I started kennel nursery and telling people that you have so much to offer and to also have the ability to advocate for them and talk to organizations to be open that we did this diversity inclusion movement in some way or fashion. People with disabilities work can will not carry through this process, the same way that the social justice movement in this ran and race, gender, LGBT rights, disability seem to cannot took us not a step back with a kind of back back on the line. And I feel that we need to start talking about that then. This year was very empowering to have the best picture in the Oscar award for the Sundance Film Festival for many years. And we always wanted one of our films to be selected as a Best Picture and we have many that were nominated and never won that one. And it was so good that the one that actually won for the first time in 35 years, was a film about hearing impairment about disability is in having a cast that was actually disabled not pretending to be disabled. In, in this, I think is opened the door for me to see disabilities not as a problem, but actually as an acid as something that we bring so much that to many aspects of life. Michael Hingson  50:26 We we often hear people talking about those of us who happen to be classified as people with disabilities as they call us disabled. And that means, by definition of the word we don't have the abilities that, that others except as things that you need to have. And what we've learned is that there is a difference in saying a person is disabled, as opposed to saying a person has a disability or, or something of that sort. Because the reality is that we all have challenges. And we all have gifts, and I've said it before on this podcast. But what is really a disability as such. And we've got to get beyond thinking that because somebody is different than us, because they don't do things like we do. Some of us don't walk, some of us don't hear, as you said, some of us don't see. But we have understood that. And I'm glad you came to the, to the conclusion that we have as much to offer, as anyone else does. We may not do it exactly the same way. But that is where our value comes in. And the fact that we are able to show others in our ways, the assets that we bring is, is hopefully something that over time will make the world more inclusive, I won't use diversity, because diversity tends to not include disabilities anyway, even though every sighted person has the disability that they rely on light. So we could pick on that. But the fact is that we all have value. And it's high time that society recognizes that. And yes, I agree with you about the Oscar winners this year. That was great. And it was exciting to to see that happen. I hope it will happen more. And then we will see more actors with recognizable and maybe not so recognizable disabilities actually be included in all areas of the moviemaking acting, television and media industries. Dr. Carlos Archilla-Cady  52:56 And so yeah, and I think that's kind of with the movement of diversity, equity inclusion, it is the inclusion part of the equation that is the most difficult, it requires an action. It requires a will by organizations and society to do that. But also kind of want to say the inclusion is your right, I don't like the word disability, but it's the best word that we have right now. Because it means this ability, you don't have the ability. So we need to see people not by what they're unable, but what they are able. And doesn't matter the way that you are presenting your wheelchair, you have mobility issues, visual issues, hearing impairment, neurodiversity, mental health, because there is some disabilities that are visible and disabilities are invisible. Michael Hingson  53:52 Well, and again, as I said, I could make the case that every single person on the earth has some sort of a disability. And that the reality is that a lot of the people don't have disabilities that they recognize as such, because there's been enough technology and work to overcome those. But now we need to bring the rest of us into that and become more accepting than we are. Dr. Carlos Archilla-Cady  54:22 And in addition to acceptance, I also want people to kind of move from accessibility. Right, and I'm working with many organizations to kind of move that the efforts that they're making because I know they're making the efforts in to move from accessibility to inclusion, especially in the business side. Now that I've you know, after completing my degree, I've been doing business school for the past four years, that there is such a thing as a disability economy. And there is a lot of innovation that is being as people with disabilities are producing we are, I always say that we are in a constant innovative state every day we innovate, because we try to accommodate our reality to a world that is not made for us. So we have to innovate. And sometimes you have good days, sometimes you have bad days. So you try, whatever you innovate the day before you have a bad day, the next day, you have to re innovate again, imagine how transformation on powerful that could be for our organization. In so we need to start kind of bringing closer together the disability economy. And the venture capitalists and investors to say this is an Arab can invest. I tell people, there's 1.3 billion people market, these people have a trillion dollars of income in progress believes that is somewhere between one and $3 trillion dollars of that a trillion is disposable income. So I signed to say this is it's a win win, you create solutions. But if you actually find and invest in people that are coming with disability products and solutions, those solutions, not only can definitely have a potential to be business have a business sense, in terms of creating value. But also imagine that many of this, what people call special solutions become universal solutions that everyone in society can benefit from. And the best way to do it is to be sure that people with disabilities are included in the leadership structure of the organization. So you can actually promote this innovative mindset that will bring us something that we have to develop in our own lives. Michael Hingson  56:54 Right. I want to switch to something else that I've been very curious about. And that is that you have become interested in space travel. Tell us a little bit about that. Dr. Carlos Archilla-Cady  57:08 That's, that's my new. My new area, Carlos always gets into a new project from time to time, then this is my new one. The way that I got him interested, I mean, definitely, as a child, you know, that's kind of your childhood dream to one day be able to go to space and reach to the stars. And the in my readings. Recently, this is a few months ago, I've read about a story about a group of 12 disability ambassadors that were chosen by a company called organization called astral access to do a spatial studio gravity flight. And of course, they chose different people have different types of disabilities. In when I read a story, I said, Okay, I have always thought that space travel is completely off limits for people like me, you know, we will not qualify, we cannot be pilots, we cannot definitely qualify for the astronaut training. But when I saw that, they said, Well, maybe maybe we can do that. And now that we have the space tourism industry, that you don't have to be a fully trained astronaut, but you can still have the opportunity to go to space. I say, you know, why not me? So I decided to reach out to many of these disability ambassadors that were in that flight. That was in October of 2021. And I started learning from then how healing and empowering was that experience to them that when they were in zero gravity, they were not. They didn't define themself about what they were limited. But what they were able they were floating in the air, they didn't feel that they have any mobility limitations that didn't have any visual limitations. So hearing limitations in that kind of environment, they were have a significant sense of freedom. And I said, Well, I want to experience that. So I talked to the company and I wanted to say you know want to use this experience, not Arsa experience what they experience, but also maybe advance this disability inclusion message that disability inclusion can also happen in space travel. And I was kind of having some signs that I brought a while I was in zero gravity. We were about eight and a half minutes and zero gravity. I was able to kind of show those signs to the cameras and they'd have to photographer taking pictures in people, you know, kind of kind of create awareness about disability inclusions about veterans or disabled veterans in space, and also promote organ and tissue donation. In addition to that, I knew that with glaucoma, there is some reports see that there is some effects visual effects of being exposed to microgravity. And one of the things that that I'm more concerned about is elevation on the intraocular pressures and pressures inside my high. And those have been reported to be in healthy volunteers that they have increased somewhere between 10 and 40%. So I wanted to measure that myself. So negotiated with the company to do it in a safe way towards the end, the last minute minute and a half of microgravity, my pressures went up about 31%. So I was able to measure that. And that happened immediately after we enter zero gravity. And within one minute of leaving zero gravity, they went back to normal. And I'm believed to be the first person in history to measure with active glaucoma to measure the internal pressures in zero gravity. Michael Hingson  1:00:57 So what's ahead for you in terms of space travel? And you're interested in this? Dr. Carlos Archilla-Cady  1:01:04 Yes, I mean, I really want to continue knowing more what happens with visual changes in my fingers posed to microgravity. I mean, right now, there have been some research that has been done, actually quite a bit of pretty good research. And we know already that you intracranial pressure increases in zero gravity, during 12 o'clock, precious increases uses zero gravity and the spinal fluid that you have in your brain, the amount increases in zero gravity primarily from recruitment from the spinal fluid that is in your spine, that goes all the way up to your brain. And then so the ventricles which the areas of the brain the whole, your spinal fluid, get enlarge, put some pressure into the ice and the ice get flatten in these changes can last for days, they delete and the intraocular pressures tend to normalize by day number three, or four or space travel. So it will talking about the space industry and having anyone including people with disability and visual disabilities with glaucoma, which is 100 million people in the world. With glaucoma to be able to have this experience, we need to make a safe for them. So the more we know about the effects, the more we can actually prepare, then maybe additional medications may be so acute treatment while you're in the zero gravity, so that way we can do this experience safely for everyone. And this this has, has been well studied. by many scientists, there is a term that NASA came up to describe this phenomenon. In one of the things that we see is that astronauts that are in space for a prolonged period of time, especially those who are for their for weeks or months, when they return towards they their visual acuity goes from 2020 2015 to like 2200. In that happens in about 70% of people that go we have a prolonged exposure to microgravity in the solar effects. In addition, you know, there's optic nerve and edema which is swelling of the optic nerve, the veins around your eyes, they can swollen, this on retinal changes, so probably is more multifactorial is not the increase in the intraocular pressures and the intracranial pressure that causes these visual changes. So we need to meet the need, we need to know more about that. So one of the things that I would like to do is continue having some opportunities to do this research, but not in healthy volunteers in people like me, so we can make a safe for people like me to go to space. Michael Hingson  1:03:54 So are the changes permanent? Dr. Carlos Archilla-Cady  1:03:58 Yeah, very good question. So the right now this changes, last four weeks, two months, they have been very rare. repond are reports that this can last for years. But there are definitely self limited as soon as you return back to to you know, to normal gravity. And this is this the name of this syndrome is called Space Flight associated neurotic syndrome. And as I said, it's it can be observed as many as 70 to 75% of people that has been exposed have a prolonged exposure to microgravity. And so I did this for two reasons. I wanted to know how my body responded to microgravity. So when I do my my space flight, I will be able to prepare myself and maybe talk to my teens is anything that we can do extra medication, right, that I can do right prior to enter microgravity and made this experience a little safe not only for me, but for people like me. Michael Hingson  1:05:00 So, philosophically speaking, why should we be exploring space? Dr. Carlos Archilla-Cady  1:05:07 I think this is the I have to go back to the title of your podcast the unstoppable mind. We as humans, human kindness is in a constant state of evolution and a constant state of, of exploration. You think about it, you know, we when, in the past six, 8 billion years we went from one celled organism into a multi celled organism. In addition to that, we you think about explorers in the 14th and 15th century, that decided to explore the world we're talking about the famous Portuguese and Basque explorers at first started venturing into the world. This is part of our nature. This is part of human nature, this part of humanity. And so the next step is same way that when we established the United States, we wanted to hold to this kind of westward move to expand our country, to things because we wanted to explore what was west of what the 13th initial colonies had territory that they had. But also because we wanted to discover what other things that we can actually discover there that can make society better. So we have been doing this exploration for years. And we are now naming this in some way we say to space for Earth, in why's that low Earth orbit colonization is the next step for humankind. That's the reason many industries right now many companies we're talking about dozens, or maybe hundreds of companies are developing what this new space station will look like. And most of them will be privately funded. And we're talking about hundreds of people in space orbiting the Earth in low orbit. I always say that this is going to be the next internet. Because when you do that, then you have to create a new industry, a new type of economy is a service economy. For those hundreds of people that are orbiting the Earth. There is also a medical research economy, that is also innovation economy, things that we can actually innovate there that can bring solutions or new products to make life better on Earth. In addition to the research and medical advances, and the and producing new products, the products that we already have to innovate, to actually service those space stations, mostly private that we're going to be seen in the years to come. The solutions that we have to create can actually be commercialized to create solutions for problems that we have on Earth, the same way that I was telling you. Disability innovation can actually not only create special solutions, but create universal solutions. The same thing with space exploration can actually create no special solutions for the space industry, but actually create universal solutions for for all of us. Michael Hingson  1:08:22 How soon do you think we're going to see space colonization, low Earth orbit colonization be a regular part of our society? Dr. Carlos Archilla-Cady  1:08:34 I think just I will not be surprised that within a decade, we're going to be seeing more and more this, this prototypes are already made, some are being built. I think the first the next decade will probably bring more space stations, especially knowing that International Space Station will be decommissioned in that period of time, in 10 years, for now. I think they're trying to stretch every every so often they stretch out a little bit longer, because is a lot of investment that has gone into it. And the next step will be Believe it or not colonization of the moon and looking at the resources that we can find in the moon. But also we can actually not only do colonization for research and medical advances and new product development, but we can actually move certain industry that can be polluting industries that can be actually placed in low orbit. So we don't have to worry about the side effects of polluting effects of these industries. We can actually develop new sources of energy imagine solar energy that we can capture, even in a higher power. And then that energy being beamed down towards Empower Earth in a clean renewable way. So yes, I think the low Earth orbit colonization is something that we might see in a decade. Moon colonization and something that probably is a little bit down the road. But we're destined to be an interplanetary species is just our nature. I think, you know, it's within us, it's in our DNA to be unstoppable explorers, because collectively and individually, we all have an unstoppable mind. Michael Hingson  1:10:20 Being a science fiction fan, I, I can't but think of Arthur C. Clarke and his proposal or, or visioning of an A space elevator, an elevator that actually would take people into space, to space stations and so on from Earth, that there would be a structure that would be 100 or 200 miles tall, that would actually go into space. And that would have a synchronous orbit space station that would be attached to the elevator, and people could actually ride it up to the spaceship station and go from there might be an interesting concept. Dr. Carlos Archilla-Cady  1:11:00 Yeah, I mean, they talking about the Hyperloop, that we're talking about that connecting cities within minutes, you know, within minutes versus hours of flight, the same concept can be applied to have a Hyperloop that connects the surface of the Earth with some of this low Earth orbit. Space Stations, one of the things that also is being developed is to have like the same way that you have airline hubs, you know, like Dallas at the JFK is to have some kind of hubs in that orbiting space at the hole, the old times, and you can have a Hyperloop connecting Earth to this hub. And then from there, people hop to the different space stations to the moon, and potentially to other planets, you know, always say that we, they always have taught us for years that the sky's the limit. And and now we say no, the sky is no longer the limit, the universe is the limits, space is the limit. And I think by we essentially were limited, as a human species, by our ability to dream, if we are capable of dreaming and envisioning a future that is different, better, more powerful than the one that we have today. Then that future can happen because we have the capability to dream about it. Michael Hingson  1:12:30 And that really means being unstoppable, which is what we're all talking about. Dr. Carlos Archilla-Cady  1:12:36 We have to have an unstoppable mindset, we have to have an unstoppable mindset. And and I think, you know, in the past few minutes, I never thought that what I said that I'm a person that has a lot of determination always been that way, never equated on determination to having an unstoppable mindset. But if now that I've been talking to you over the past few minutes, really makes me think that what really carry me on to where I am today, and I will be in the future is that unstoppable mindset. I think that was what really empower me during this years, Michael Hingson  1:13:19 I believe it. And with that, I think we'll go ahead and close this particular episode of unstoppable mindset. But at the same time, we have to have you back to hear more about what's happening with you in space and some of the other things that

He's known to millions, in the words of Arthur C. Clarke, as “The most famous unknown actor in the world.” Richter was a mime (and a poet) during the 1960s, but also gained cinematic immortality as "Moonwatcher" in the iconic "Dawn of Man" sequence in Stanley Kubrick's 2001: A Space Odyssey. This in itself would be enough to stir our interest, but Dan was also intimately involved with John and Yoko as a personal assistant for five years, during which time he helped manage their film and recording projects while kicking his heroin habit. He tells his story in compelling detail in his book, The Dream is Over: London in the 60's, Heroin and John and Yoko.  Joining the conversation is guest co-host Ian McNabb (see SATB 234). The conversation covers Dan's time with the Lennons, as well as work on 2001 with Stanley Kubrick.

The award-winning master of spoken word audio, this week's guest is the endlessly entertaining Dirk Maggs. Dirk has been overseeing the production of The Sandman: Act III, the latest in a long line of collaborations with Neil Gaiman. He was first introduced to Neil via a mutual friend at DC Comics, as Dirk had been involved in audio productions of The Adventures of Superman, Batman: The Lazarus Syndrome and other projects and it was also due to the DC connection that Dirk met Douglas Adams and so began the protracted process of bringing The Hitchhiker's Guide To The Galaxy 'back home to BBC Radio' as Adams put it. Dirk has also produced adaptations of Agatha Christie, Stephen King and Arthur C Clarke works. But it is for his work in comedy that we are focusing on this week - Dirk devised and produced At Last The Go On Show in 1991 to mark the 40th anniversary of The Goon Show; he later was the brains behind Goon Again in 2001, a special one-off restaging of The Goon Show starring Jeffrey Holland, Andrew Secombe, Jon Glover and Christopher Timothy ('a genetically-engineered tribute band' was how he described it). We also talk about his early break in BBC Radio comedy producing The News Huddlines and shows such as The Long Hot Satsuma starring Graeme Garden and Barry Cryer, and later programmes like Inside Sasha and Flywheel, Shyster & Flywheel which introduced The Marx Brothers to new generations. It's a terrific conversation about a wide-ranging and never-dull career. More on Dirk here: www.dirkmaggs.com

Welcome to The Nonlinear Library, where we use Text-to-Speech software to convert the best writing from the Rationalist and EA communities into audio. This is: The Track Record of Futurists Seems ... Fine, published by Holden Karnofsky on July 4, 2022 on The Effective Altruism Forum. Disclaimer: This post was cross-posted with the author's permission, under his account. He may not notice comments. It was originally posted on June 30. You can find the audio version here. I've argued that the development of advanced AI could make this the most important century for humanity. A common reaction to this idea is one laid out by Tyler Cowen here: "how good were past thinkers at predicting the future? Don't just select on those who are famous because they got some big things right." This is a common reason people give for being skeptical about the most important century - and, often, for skepticism about pretty much any attempt at futurism (trying to predict key events in the world a long time from now) or steering (trying to help the world navigate such key future events). The idea is something like: "Even if we can't identify a particular weakness in arguments about key future events, perhaps we should be skeptical of our own ability to say anything meaningful at all about the long-run future. Hence, perhaps we should forget about theories of the future and focus on reducing suffering today, generally increasing humanity's capabilities, etc." But are people generally bad at predicting future events? Including thoughtful people who are trying reasonably hard to be right? If we look back at prominent futurists' predictions, what's the actual track record? How bad is the situation? I've looked pretty far and wide for systematic answers to this question, and Open Philanthropy's Luke Muehlhauser has put a fair amount of effort into researching it; I discuss what we've found in an appendix. So far, we haven't turned up a whole lot - the main observation is that it's hard to judge the track record of futurists. (Luke discusses the difficulties here.) Recently, I worked with Gavin Leech and Misha Yagudin at Arb Research to take another crack at this. I tried to keep things simpler than with past attempts - to look at a few past futurists who (a) had predicted things "kind of like" advances in AI (rather than e.g. predicting trends in world population); (b) probably were reasonably thoughtful about it; but (c) are very clearly not "just selected on those who are famous because they got things right." So, I asked Arb to look at predictions made by the "Big Three" science fiction writers of the mid-20th century: Isaac Asimov, Arthur C. Clarke, and Robert Heinlein. These are people who thought a lot about science and the future, and made lots of predictions about future technologies - but they're famous for how entertaining their fiction was at the time, not how good their nonfiction predictions look in hindsight. I selected them by vaguely remembering that "the Big Three of science fiction" is a thing people say sometimes, googling it, and going with who came up - no hunting around for lots of sci-fi authors and picking the best or worst. So I think their track record should give us a decent sense for "what to expect from people who are not professional, specialized or notably lucky forecasters but are just giving it a reasonably thoughtful try." As I'll discuss below, I think this is many ways "unfair" as a comparison to today's forecasts about AI: I think these predictions are much less serious, less carefully considered and involve less work (especially work weighing different people and arguments against each other). But my takeaway is that their track record looks ... fine! They made lots of pretty detailed, nonobvious-seeming predictions about the long-run future (30+, often 50+ years out); results ranged from "very impressive" (Asimov got about half of his right, with very nonobvious-seeming predictions) to "bad" (Heinlein was closer...

Welcome to The Nonlinear Library, where we use Text-to-Speech software to convert the best writing from the Rationalist and EA communities into audio. This is: The Track Record of Futurists Seems ... Fine, published by HoldenKarnofsky on June 30, 2022 on LessWrong. I've argued that the development of advanced AI could make this the most important century for humanity. A common reaction to this idea is one laid out by Tyler Cowen here: "how good were past thinkers at predicting the future? Don't just select on those who are famous because they got some big things right." This is a common reason people give for being skeptical about the most important century - and, often, for skepticism about pretty much any attempt at futurism (trying to predict key events in the world a long time from now) or steering (trying to help the world navigate such key future events). The idea is something like: "Even if we can't identify a particular weakness in arguments about key future events, perhaps we should be skeptical of our own ability to say anything meaningful at all about the long-run future. Hence, perhaps we should forget about theories of the future and focus on reducing suffering today, generally increasing humanity's capabilities, etc." But are people generally bad at predicting future events? Including thoughtful people who are trying reasonably hard to be right? If we look back at prominent futurists' predictions, what's the actual track record? How bad is the situation? I've looked pretty far and wide for systematic answers to this question, and Open Philanthropy's1 Luke Muehlhauser has put a fair amount of effort into researching it; I discuss what we've found in an appendix.

My God, it's full of stars… Thanks Hal… How beautiful is that? Yes, this week we get sciencey and oh, how our minds are scrambled! This episode Geordie & Michelle look at quantum-y things like the multiverse, time travel and more, starting with Geordie's revelation about a super hungry Super Massive Black Hole that's been discovered by Australian scientists. Apparently it eats the equivalent of one Earth every second  - WHAT?! - and it shines 7,000 times brighter than all the light from our own galaxy. Plus she natters about 2001: A Space Odyssey, an interstellar object floating randomly in space called Oumuamua, a fascinating Time Slip incident in Liverpool plus Michelle compares the multiverse theory to a giant eating a Malteser. Tune in to hear all this and more!   What would you change if you could go back in time? What kind of life you could have had if only you'd made even one different decision? These questions and more were inspired by Michelle reading How To Stop Time by Matt Haig, which is a gorgeous time-skipping novel about the power of love and the point of living, which Michelle basically reviews in this episode.  She then talks about The Midnight Library, another Matt Haig book, about a place between life and death where you can try on different lives the way you'd try on a coat… Michelle then gets very confused about Einstein's time-travel theory that's part of his special relativity theory and time dilation, but she has some interesting info about time gain and GPS satellites. She also discusses some real-life time travellers and  about what she might change if only she'd bought those 9 Bitcoins…   We hope you enjoy this week's episode – and wherever you are, whatever you do, just keep Eavesdroppin'!   *Disclaimer: We don't claim to have any factual info about anything ever, soooooorrrrrryyyyyyyy   Get in touch with your stories and listen, like, subscribe, share etc…  Or email us at hello@eavesdroppinpodcast.com      Listen here: www.eavesdroppinpodcast.com Or here: https://podfollow.com/1539144364   WE ARE NOW ON PATREON :) Want to show your favourite podcast some love by throwing a coin into the tip jar?

He accomplished far more in his life than most, yet he was a high school dropout. Born in November 1919 in New York, as is often the case, this science fiction author started out as a sci-fi fan.Along with Isaac Asimov, C.M. Kornbluth, and others he formed a group known as the Futurians which broke off from the Greater New York Science Fiction Club. The author once said and I quote, “We changed clubs the wayDetroitchanges tailfins, every year had a new one, and last year's was junk.”He would form lasting relationships with members of the group and many of them rose to sci-fi success.  Frederik Pohl's work was first published in 1937 and he began his career as a literary agent that same year. He was Isaac Asimov's agent, the only one he ever had, then he started editing not one, but two magazines, Astonishing Stories and Super Science Stories. He was only 20! His stories often appeared in these magazines but never under his own name. Stories he wrote with C.M. Kornbluth were credited to S. D. Gottesman or Scott Mariner, other stories were credited to Paul Dennis Lavond or, as is the case with today's story James MacCreigh. Then came World War II. Pohl served as an Army weatherman in Italy. After the war he wrote advertising copy, became a literary agent again, and started writing a lot, quite often with his friend C.M. Kornbluth.He would become an editor for two magazines again, this time, Galaxy and If, Worlds of science Fiction. Pohl won more than his share of awards, a Hugo for best magazine in 1966, 1967 and 1968. In 1976 he won the Nebula award given by the group now known as the Science Fiction and Fantasy Writers of America. He won another Nebula the next year and a Hugo in 1978. There are simply too many awards to mention them all. He wrote more than 65 novels, more than 150 short stories and he kept writing. His last collaborative effort was 2008's The Last Theorem with Arthur C. Clarke and he won his last Hugo in 2010!Frederic Pohl died in September 2013 at the age of 93. Let's go back in time more than 72 years ago to the pages of Planet Stories magazine and listen to the words from a Sci-Fi Superstar, Let The Ants Try by Frederic PohlIn 1936 Pohl and around a dozen other sci-fi enthusiasts gathered in the back room of a bar in Philadelphia for what many regard as the world's first science fiction “convention.”Next week on The Lost Sci-Fi Podcast They opened the ruins to tourists at a dollar a head but they reckoned without The Old Martians.Thanks for listening and we hope you'll join us next week onThe Lost Sci-Fi Podcast, with at least one lost vintage sci-fi short story in every episode.

When Dr. Dave Bowman (Keir Dullea) and other astronauts are sent on a mysterious mission, their ship's computer system, HAL, begins to display increasingly strange behavior, leading up to a tense showdown between man and machine that results in a mind-bending trek through space and time."
