  1. I know that Talk at Google is euphemism for buy my book tour, and they let anyone in, as long as they have a "book". And, I hate to be cynical, but it feels suspicious to get advice on how to age well, from a person who packs double the amount of weight than he should. His info might as well be good info, however there is also something to be said for leading by example. I'll skip this one, thank you very much.

  2. Bravo. This is what we want google, empirical, data driven science. Not the postmodern Neo Marxist evil that is feminism which resulted in the illegal firing of James Demore.

  3. The power of dopamine. I've never used recreational drugs before but what if I started using MDMA or marijuana shortly after I retire? Would that steady burst of dopamine improve or maintain my cognitive function? 🤔

  4. He spends a lot of time talking about the power of nostalgia, and yet the smartest people I know personally or follow online have a habit of lifelong learning and adapting to the changing times. On the other hand I'm seeing quite a few losers in their 30's or even younger who cling to their high school or college years and stopped growing. Also, he's fat.

  5. Love the science and enthusiasm. I just have one question about ..you guessed it . Diet. Is John on the Mediterranean or MIND diet as recommended in BRAW.
    If so then they will make you obese and we know your brain doesn't like that. We're confused. Please clarify.

  6. that fatfuck is selling a book,nothing new here, all this is a loop of things already known,he don't care about anybody,just money.

  7. Super talk. I will listen again as John goes so quickly and I want to note the references he uses (which I am sure are in the book). I enjoyed the original Brain Rules book and this video carries on from that. Bravo!

  8. Regarding Ellen Langer's CounterClock experiment (25m10s), there was a great Hidden Brain episode ("Good Old Days") that talks about nostalgia's dark side which includes mis-remembering/re-writing the past as well as the neuroticism and loneliness that's often associated with those that practice reminiscing.
