  1. Just the final words! Lol
    Funny thing is that the youtube here suggests you some video links to click! Lol

  2. I have question regarding evolution and my ancestors. How many ancestors experiences do I incorporate in my genes. Let’s assume that a new generation is born every 20 years. The purpose is to calculate all ancestors 2000 years backward. Let’s begin with simple calculation 200 years backward which means 10 generations backward. One generation back equals 1*2, two generations back equals 1*2*2, three generations back equals 1*2*2*2, ten generations back equals 2^10 = 1024 ancestors for 200 years back. In order to simplify calculations I round 1024 to 1000 or 10^3. Now let’s calculate ancestors backward 400 years which equals to 1000 * 1000, backward 600 years equals 1000*1000*1000, backward 2000 years equals 1000^(3*10) = 10^30. That means that all my ancestors backward 2000 years equals to the number 1 followed by 30 zeros! Did I really have 1.000.000.000.000.000.000.000.000.000.000 ancestors 2000 years backward?

  3. I have read Homo sapiens. It is intriguing book and I have learnt a lot. Although I didn’t agree with some contents of the book, it captivated me like no other one. Looking forward to read the other books of the writer.

  4. White is so not in sync with what Harari is saying. Wish Google had got someone who was on Harari's page to pin him.

  5. "At the time of crisis philosophy has little power, you act from your gut, not from your philosophical theories".

  6. This guy is 100% right and 100% naive. The education system hasn't been about such topics as discussed here since they decided that indoctrination was far more important.

  7. Sadly, Mr Wilson White cannot reach the actual reasoning that Prof Yuval is trying to demonstrate. Result being a high quality talk becomes pure entertainment.

  8. I use Harari in my teaching as he is thought provoking and gets you to think to try and become = more aware and knowledgable about the WHY – WHAT – HOW – WHERE – WHEN in our lives. We must understand that this planet is fragile.

  9. This is one of the most important books of all times. And I especially love the fact that at the end of the book he is promoting meditation but a stripped down version of meditation without the religious dogma attached. I agree with the other comments that this book should be required reading for every man, woman and child!

  10. Crap – he’s argues human beings have no free will – so that means he has not chosen his own actions, his own path – he’s merely a product of his environment- so no praise is due for his supposed insight. The discussion about the possibilities of Ai is nothing new either. I could watch for example the movie Elysium or Ai and talk about the same Ai concepts. He’s just a fast talking/motivational speaker guy with an agenda- and that’s fine – but I’m not convinced in the least that he’s a genius. I agree with some of his points and not others – these are conversations we have at the dinner table – not genius.

  11. When can I order my Google ditch digger 2000. I heard if I order early I
    can get my repair robot X1 so I am covered when my digger 2000 goes
    down.

  12. If his fucking zionists buddies did not steal 21 trillion dollars from the United States, and they did not get the United States in a perpetual war and all that money was redistributed to the people.

    We did not have to reinvent ourselves over and over.

    Fuck you asshole.

    Some of as are awake.

    Just ask yourselves if Andrew Jackson was brought back to life what would he do.

    He would fuckin shut down federal reserve.

    On day 1.

  13. This POS excrement interviewed at a Vegan restaurant (he's very particular on cruelty to animals), this POS declined to opine on the murder of more than 500 Gaza children by Israel in their genocidal operation on the Gaza Concentration Camp. This POS is more concerned about cruelty to animals than Palestinian children by his apartheid genocide government.

  14. This POS is an apologist for genocidal Israel. He declined in a Guardian interview to express a opinion on the bloody Israeli operation that murdered more than 500 children. This POS has opined on the humanity of animals – he's a vegan apparently, He has never opined on the humanity of Palestinians. He's excrement in my view, filth.

  15. We didn't inherit our liberal mottos. We deliberately intentionally created our democracy, such as it is. Rule of law. Justice for all. Conversations. Put down your righteousness and pick up a stand.

  16. Sorry, beyond belief bullshit – this cunt was asked in a Guardian interview – this when the IDF had murdered 500 children. This POS, this filth declined to address.

  17. Yesterday I was torrenting his book and boom… Today Google showed me this Talk in YT feed.. 😂 😂 😂

  18. I checked his books at a store yesterday. And I wondered what I need confirmation for what I think since years anyway? Do I feel better cause some now famous "thinker" proofs I´m right? No, I worry again even more about the stupidity of mankind that makes this man a sensation. And it´s sweet to see the host trying to spot the benefits of the development to avoid the horror of total control his company is aiming at anyway. A critical thinker would focus on that main fact and couldn´t be as naive to discuss big brother scenarios at big brothers palace. If the thinker doesn´t realize he´s used to make big brother look open minded, what big thinker is he?

  19. israelis are horrible at making ethical decisions — like murdering academics or using sniper fire to kill and maim women and children who are peacefully advocating for their freedom.

  20. Yuval statement " My best advice is to focus on personal resilience and emotional intelligence." stood out as be best advice he gave.

  21. 35:14 “Exciting news (or entertainment) for free … and truth gets pushed aside.” We are having our attention hijacked for free and for fake news.

  22. …"… very old spiritual and philosophical questions are now practical questions of engineering which you cannot escape,… if you want, for example,… to put a self-driving car on the road …"… @25:35

  23. Prof. Harari , I do have a lot of respect for you. But in your book , at part that you're writing about God , you wrote " …Denmark is not not vild like Iran !!! This statement refers meanly to people of Denmark ( I assume) but in comparison , Iranian PEPOLE are accused for being vild , in fact because of their government's behaviour ,I think it's better to be more considerate when you're making / writing these kind of judgements !

  24. Well said.. The true picture about religions…How the religions have manipulated human beings throughout decades to gain power and remain in power…Its important that people should start thinking fresh rationally….

  25. The owner should donate google to the world . With a rotating non partisan management. Its either that or it will have to be broken up.In the wrong hands it is freedom over.

  26. Ser catedrático en el ESTADO de ISRAEL,
    NO ES PARA CUALQUIERA…..

    SUS análisis lo hacen
    El PROFETA de la MUERTE….
    …… la muerte de
    los MARGINADOS y emPOBREcidos
    del mundo.!

    SERÁ un SUPREMASISTA SIONISTA.?

  27. So insulting to a giant in modern philosophy and Titanic thought leaders to have a moderator that hasn't even read his book and doesn't even get the basic principles… Especially at Google! Isnt it supposed to be hard to get a job there??

  28. why pseudoscience at google? there are al lot of specialists in all those fields that can debunk in seconds all the naïve methodological reductionism of reducing complex systems to few buzz-words

  29. At end asked what Google should work on? Yuval Harari suggests AI that doesn't prioritise profit but protects him.
    Am confinced enough he really means AI that protects people.
    Those prioritizing escaping to Mars or thier private armies appear comparatively callous and should be restricted in those efforts due to what they are and shall be killing.

  30. Hes hopping around from subject to subject not being able to complete each one because theres just so much to explain in such little time. And he knows he cant explain one without explaining another that supports one but then he has to explain a third so we can understand the 2nd and then the interviewer wants to move on and the whole thing collapses. This is when books are better than interviews.

  31. Harari: "Google Will hack us".
    Interviewer: "Yeah, but you gave us permission".
    Harari: "No, we didn't".

    Well, that backfired. Gotta love this guy.

  32. I read some comments and people seem to think that the interviewer did a bad job, but I honestly didn't notice anything like that. He had a few bad habits that could easily be ironed out with experience. The poorer parts of his performance seem to come down to nerves rather than anything else, which is, of course, understandable when dealing with a mind like Yuval's. Also, this isn't the best talk Yuval has given, but that's saying that it's 'only' good compared to his other amazing talks.

  33. this guy gives good advice about future..teaches a lot about past..but the results he deduce from history is pure conjecture a best..

  34. I truthfully believe that the great value of this man's job is that the outcomes presents us possibilities of our future. We are able to see, clarifying ourselves if it's consistent, reliable and solid bases job – if his comceptions really worth – and decide by ourselves the direction to go – the one we believe that is right. Congratulations Mr. Harari. You must be listened.
