  • Scott H Young compares the mind to a computer, based on the abstract concept of information processing.

Against discipline
by Irina Dumitrescu (4 mins)

  • Engaging in enjoyable activities can be surprisingly difficult to initiate due to internal resistance.
  • "Discipline" as a solution might inadvertently turn these activities into obligations, leading to rebellion.
  • Embracing "play" could be a more effective way to overcome resistance and indulge in loved activities.

How developing mental immunity can protect us from bad ideas
by Dr. Hannah Rose (6 mins)

  • Mental immunity helps the mind detect and reject misinformation, analogous to the body's immune system targeting pathogens.
  • Enhancing mental immunity promotes critical thinking, aids in discerning false information, and encourages cognitive flexibility based on credible evidence.
  • Increase awareness of misinformation, cultivate evidence-based beliefs (meta-beliefs), and practice diverse and critical content consumption.
