Is language capable of communicating experience? Looking for a link we mentioned? It's here: https://linktr.ee/philosophyforourtimesWe think sharing experience is essential to being human. At an individual level, we share experiences to get to know others and understand them. Yet from the taste of an apple to giving birth, we know we cannot fully describe the experience to someone who has not already had it. Many now also maintain that it is impossible to communicate the experience of discrimination, and other cultures can only be understood by those who have experienced it. But even if it remains an impossible task - for language to truly bridge our separate realities - should it nevertheless remain something that is continually strived for?Professor of Black Studies at Birmingham City University Kehinde Andrews, linguist and Associate Professor of English and comparative literature at Columbia University John McWhorter, and Professor of philosophy and cognitive science at Yale University Laurie Ann Paul discuss whether or not language is capable of communicating lived experience.

His work combines philosophical and empirical approaches to study episodic memory, imagination, and human communication. In this episode, we talk about episode memory and imagination. We first talk about episodic memory, what it is, what the ability to remember the past entails, why we have it, and thinking about the future. We discuss the relationship between memory and human communication, and the social functions of memory.

Ep#117 Today's episode shines the light on a whole new way to understand compulsive overeating and that's through the lens of food addiction.  Research suggests something more complex might be going on with some foods that we eat that affect the brain's reward system similarly to the way addictive drugs do.  When addiction is the underlying cause of obesity, traditional treatment with diets that rely on personal responsibility, lifestyle changes or “willpower”can have minimal effects. Today's guest is a visionary and leader in the field of food addiction.  She is Susan Peirce Thompson, Ph.D.Adjunct Associate Professor of Brain and Cognitive Sciences at the University of Rochester, and an expert in the psychology of eating.  She is a best selling author with 3 books, “Bright Line Eating: The Science of  Living Happy, Thin, and Free”., "The Official Bright Line Eating Cookbook  - Weight Loss Made Simple", and her newest book, "Rezoom: The Powerful Reframe to end the Crash-and-Burn Cycle of Food Addiction.”Susan  is President of the Institute for Sustainable Weight Loss and CEO of Bright Line Eating Solutions (BLE), a company dedicated to helping people achieve long-term, sustainable weight loss by showing you how to rewire your brain and break the yo-yo diet cycle.   BLE is geared towards those who are susceptible to addictive foods and have struggled to find peace and sanity around food. Grounded in psychology and neuroscience Susan's program uses cutting edge research to explain how modern processed foods impact the addiction centers of the brain.   The complete opposite of the deprivation diet mindset, Bright Line Eating seeks to empower people for life, by creating a supportive community to heal the deeper emotional components that underlie addictive behaviors by integrating the tools of Positive Psychology and Internal Family Systems.  But Bright Line Eating is more than just a way of eating—it's a movement.  Their incredibly close-knit Online Support Community is the core of their program and provides the outreach and human connection essential to  success. Thousands of people from more than 60 countries have participated in their information packed online courses, and their community is growing by tens of thousands each month.  Learn About Brighline Eating (free trial available): https://brightlineeating.com/en/Learn More About Susan Peirce Thompson, Ph.D (weekly VLOG) :  https://susanpeircethompson.com

We are joined by Susanne M. Jaeggi, Ph.D discusses how working memory is an essential system that underlies the performance of virtually all complex cognitive activities. People differ in terms of how much information they can hold in working memory, and also, how easily they can hold that information in the face of distraction. These individual differences are related to the fact that the functioning of the working memory system is highly predictive of scholastic achievement and educational success, and in general, working memory capacity is crucial for our general ability to acquire knowledge and learn new skills. Given the relevance of working memory to daily life and educational settings, the mission of my research program lies in the development of working memory interventions with the aim that that participants not only improve their working memory skills, but also general skills that go beyond the trained domain. By means of behavioral and neuroimaging methods, I seek to understand the underlying cognitive and neural mechanisms that drive training-related changes.Besides research on training and transfer, my lab also investigates individual differences in working memory capacity and executive control, as well as the nature of working memory limitations across the lifespan.https://www.scientificamerican.com/article/does-brain-training-actually-work/"To overcome these limitations, our team is currently leveraging the power of citizen science. Similar to a large-scale study in the United Kingdom (Brain Test Britain, promoted by Cambridge University and the BBC), we are seeking to recruit thousands of participants to help us uncover the potential merits of memory training. But unlike Brain Test Britain's simple question of whether brain training works, we are looking to engage the U.S. population in a new challenge to test why and for whom brain training works, and under which conditions.To accomplish our goal, we have launched a new study funded by the National Institutes of Health that aims to recruit 30,000 volunteers to participate in a memory training study that compares multiple approaches to train working memory. The study will use a common set of assessment measures to evaluate potential training gains, and it will focus on individual differences. Anyone older than 18 can join our study and help generate the data required to change the debate and move forward with a new paradigm of precision brain training.

And so anything that we state in either scientific or religious frameworks, spiritual frameworks, will always be only a partial description and will maybe give us some pointers that are good on truth. It will also miss other things that are really important... Science is part of the process of the fun of exploring using conceptual tools, this endless truth. But on a spiritual side, another way to explore the truth is - if we are in fact ourselves not distinct from consciousness, if consciousness is the fundamental reality, and we're not distinct from that - then we can explore the truth by just being the truth.”Donald D.

"In some sense, kids don't have words early on. So they're just seeing without a filter of words. And I even have memories myself as a young child of just the wonder. I remember walking to kindergarten and seeing this bush with all sorts of flowers on it, and all these monarch butterflies on it. And I was completely transfixed. Here I was, five years old, I was looking at magic, and I knew I was looking at magic. And I stayed there so long that I was late to kindergarten. And I learned that I got in trouble for that. So taking time to enjoy the magic, I learned early on was something that would get me in trouble. Our growing up and becoming adults, we often learn to not give time to the magic because there is no time for it. You need to get onto the next thing."Donald D. Hoffman is a Professor of Cognitive Sciences at the University of California, Irvine. He is the author of The case against reality: Why evolution hid the truth from our eyes. His research on perception, evolution, and consciousness received the Troland Award of the US National Academy of Sciences, the Distinguished Scientific Award for Early Career Contribution of the American Psychological Association, the Rustum Roy Award of the Chopra Foundation, and is the subject of his TED Talk, titled “Do we see reality as it is?”http://www.cogsci.uci.edu/~ddhoff/The Case Against Realitywww.creativeprocess.infowww.oneplanetpodcast.org

And so anything that we state in either scientific or religious frameworks, spiritual frameworks, will always be only a partial description and will maybe give us some pointers that are good on truth. It will also miss other things that are really important... Science is part of the process of the fun of exploring using conceptual tools, this endless truth. But on a spiritual side, another way to explore the truth is - if we are in fact ourselves not distinct from consciousness, if consciousness is the fundamental reality, and we're not distinct from that - then we can explore the truth by just being the truth.”http://www.cogsci.uci.edu/~ddhoff/The Case Against Realitywww.creativeprocess.infowww.oneplanetpodcast.org

So most of the processes in our brains are proceeding without any conscious content, so that they're unconscious processes, but a small amount of our brain processes are somehow experiences.And the standard view is that it's a fairly recent, late evolutionary process that led to the experience of conscious experiences in humans and other animals, and perhaps other creatures more generally. My view is different. I think that the standard view that consciousness is a product of brains isn't correct because I think that our best physical theories tell us that space and time are not fundamental. Spacetime is doomed. So that's on the physics side. Physicists are saying that spacetime is not fundamental for very principled reasons, falling out of Einstein's theory of gravity and quantum field theory.”http://www.cogsci.uci.edu/~ddhoff/The Case Against Realitywww.creativeprocess.infowww.oneplanetpodcast.org
