Can You Explain A Bit More About That

please forge jumping between heads and microbes or in our moods? Yeah so so the I mean as we talked about before we. We intuitively feel that we’re we’re kind of these independent you know atomized entities, but when you look at say the physical science um we I mean firstly, our bodies are made of molecules which are actually parts of you know they were part of other plants and animals and you know inside our body. There are 40 kilograms of oxygen and that oxygen was before it was in our bodies was spread around the atmosphere in the earth in the oceans. It was inside dinosaurs and plants and trees just just to kind of give. You a thought experiment about you know how that those molecules would have been spread out if you imagine those 40 kilograms of.

Oxygen Right Now Theyre Quite You Know

densely held together with with the just they’re in water. So there’s strong kind of intermolecular bonds holding our bodies that’s why we don’t all float around even though we’re full of oxygen, but if we when we die and we’re in a weather cremated or um you know those oxygen molecules will burst out they’ll spread amongst the atmosphere. You can imagine them spreading around the entire earth. You know a line 100 kilometers high in the atmosphere and those molecules spread around the entire earth. If they were equally spread how far apart do you reckon the average oxygen molecule would be it was once in your body.

I Dont Know Like Sort Of If They

have to go around the whole world. Like I don’t know 20 mile 50 mile smaller, it’s a bit smaller than that so it turns. out there’d be 0. 3 millimeters apart so in a mil in a meter cubed. If they went around the whole world in the whole world.

You Just Take A Meter Cubed From From

you know a kilometer above Russia of Moscow. You know and you take a meter cube. There’d be 29 million molecules of oxygen that were once in your body. So that’s a dense fog of molecules and that’s mingling with a dense fog of molecules that once part of other you know every every dinosaur that’s ever lived every plan. Every you know shark hedgehog walrus.

  • oxygen
  • molecules
  • cremated
  • microbes
  • atmosphere

Its All Mixed In There So When You

take a breath. You know you’re breathing in all those that zoomological legacy all right. This is a logical legacy that’s a nice bit of language. Yeah I guess you’re also breathing in bacteria because on our body actually most of our body. is in terms of number of cells Is bacteria.

  • um know oxygen molecules burst
  • oxygen bodies spread atmosphere earth
  • bodies molecules actually
  • bodies don float oxygen
  • cremated um know oxygen

We Have About 38 Trillion Bacterial Cells

in our body to 37 trillion human cells, so they slightly outnumber us , but they’re also inside inside our human cells. You know we have these mitochondria. They’re the powerhouses of the cells They produce the energy that we move around. They were just originally single-celled bacteria that got engulfed by by a bigger cell that became multicellular organisms that evolved into humans. So even inside each one of our cells.

Like Little Russian Dolls, Are Kind

of microorganisms bacteria, so we’re a kind of chimera of of a human and a non–human And you know we with those bacteria in our guts there’s a lot of stuff. You know you read about how they can affect our moods and our emotions again detracting from our supposed you know autonomy because you. We act can be affected by how our gut bacteria are kind of treating us today, but in addition to that they want our skin in our mouths There’s about a thousand different bacterial species behind our ears. There’s about 150 different species, so they’re all over us and when you brush your skin like that they fly off into the air. You know so actually around you.

We Shed About A Million Microscopic Particles

every hour and you can sample that and it contains a distinct like signature of you. So if you use like sophisticated processing of what DNa is in there and it’s your own kind of signature like a cloud surrounding you like an aura. I suppose, but when you breathe in next to someone you’re breathing in their cloud. You know so we’re we’re constantly you know transferring molecules between us and actually. a lot of the cells in our body.

You Know Theyre Only With Us For

a few weeks their new cells form, so we’re like continually turning over so then okay right so our bodies our physical bodies are not. They don’t define us but what about DNa that’s the instructions that build the body maybe that’s us but actually that’s you know borrowed from our ancestors. We’ll pass it on to our ancestors to come. I mean even viruses sometimes carry DNa between humans. So you know that the the the tree of life is actually like a dense tangled you know network.

Because Of These These Viruses Pulling

the different um limbs together. So physically you know the science sort of says you know we’re not we’re not individuals, but then okay well. Psychologically. Maybe we are and I guess that’s where the the psychology comes into it. Which I can expand on, but no go on no I was going to say about the thoughts actually my next question was you’ve explained now like how the microbial effect of consciousness and mood and stuff and I was going to say about the thoughts bit yeah.

I Guess Because Because Then Okay So Yeah,

maybe it’s our minds that that kind of defines me. You know that’s really that’s me but actually you know every every touch from someone every word every pheromone. You know the smells the molecules that we get from people influences our brains you know we have um billions of neurons in our in our heads and they they’re changing every every second and they’re influenced by every word that we hear everything we smell so we’re not even the same person that we were when we woke up this morning you know we’re. always changing so even as I talk to you now we’re kind of changing each other’s brains and interacting with each other like that our minds are porous and um you know we have these these ideas. These cultural ideas that you know.

For Example, Like Inventors You Know

they’re great they’re lone lone geniuses out there kind of beavering away in their labs, but actually a lot of these inventions are almost kind of ready to be birthed. They’re kind of a product of a you know well standing on the shoulder of giants. I guess is a cliche but it’s actually true. You know lots of inventions like the thermometer incandescent light bulb steamboat hypodermic needle. They’re all invented by multiple people at the same time.

Sometimes Patents Filed On Exactly The Same Day

in different places, so you know these inventors weren’t necessarily um you know. Obviously, they’re bright women and men, but actually they’re often taking the almost inevitable next step in a series of kind of interdependent innovations and this creativity. It’s part of a great linked you know sort of human endeavor. I guess yeah, where does it come from you ask, but perhaps our sort of intuitive reaction to genius? Whether it’s in sport or art or science? There’s this sense of or of what is how did someone do that How do you do that as a sense that it’s beyond the individual I heard some time ago that we should regard ourselves more as an event than an object? Do you think it’s possible plausible likely that we re that we narrativize our reality due to the sort of nature of our perspective like we operate on a limited bandwidth of consciousness and that perhaps there are comparable distinct higher. or at least different levels of consciousness? Perhaps at the level of this sort of microbial reality that you describe floating in dense cubic clouds above Russia that could be attuned to could be subjectively experienced Is it do you like to get into that kind of gear Yeah, I mean I I I think there’s definitely things a lot.

We Dont Know About The World For

sure and I think um like you you said in terms of um we can did you say I think you said about kind of nouns. I guess whether objects are true or whether things are events or actually dynamic processes and I think that’s absolutely true and you know if you really look at it carefully. There is no such thing as an object like a noun. You know it’s actually a shorthand and it’s a useful shorthand because you know I mean imagine trying to sort of. I think I’m a book.

I Give An Example If Youre

like a. You know you you own a field or something and you’ve got an assistant and you ask them to go and cut the cut the meadow. You know you say meadow because it’s a kind of useful shorthand, but if we try and articulate that in its full complexity you’d be saying well. Can you go and mow that area which is in a process of changing the soil microbes are becoming dynamic and there’s gas fluxes and there’s pollinators which are made up of DNa, which is connected to the rest of the world. You know can’t do this job anymore.

I Just Wanted To Work On

a farm complicating everything yeah yeah so yes. You lose your assistant? So we we kind of need that that shorthand, but actually those shorthands can become a bit dangerous if we believe them they become our reality. This this of the the the signifier becomes the signified. I am I I have have the great privilege of living near the river Thames. I was on the river some time ago.

Theres A Weeping Willow Tree Me

and my wife went under it on a paddleboard and hung out. We didn’t do enough in erotic. We were just hanging out but like that as a like when a boat would go by the ripples come along and they move the little paddleboard that we were on. I was holding on to a branch to keep us there underneath it and I said that do I imagine that if you had a sensory instrument sensitive enough that the waves.

That We Can Experience When We

are in water would be ah measurable when someone comes into a room and you are affected by it and based on what you’re saying about pheromones and microbial information that this is true that like it’s like Oh, I don’t feel cool when that person comes in like it’s not entirely a construct as materialists in the the current Zenith of understanding would have us believe but that there is the possibility that we are like that ain’t good something negative just happened and where do you say you feel these things in your gut in your heart? Where there are indeed as I understand neurological cells and processes that could be called intuition taking place definitely yeah There’s there’s a lot of processes that go on behind our consciousness that you know that we’re not aware of and I mean there’s experiments. For example, where you know dentists making mistakes if you if you don’t do this by the way If you wear a t-shirt to the dentist that you’ve been you know you’ve had some fearsome event happen to you. You know you jumped out of an airplane and then your the kind of.
