Episode 20 of the Wake Up Podcast is one of the most mind-blowing yet.
Brandon Quittem, the Mycelium master & the always deep & eloquent Gigi join me.
There we so many breakthroughs during this conversation.
The framing of Bitcoin as a Living Organism is likely the most profound there is.
We discussed life as a concept: "That which continues".
How markets function like a biological system, or biological systems function like markets.
Emergence as a concept
Life being emergent, complex and bottom up, not top down.
Contrary to how religionists think (in general) ?
We looked at Bitcoin through the lens of the Sovereign individual thesis:
Fragmentation as something that WILL happen, whether or not we do it consciously.
We the tied this into the idea of Bitcoin & the great filter (article by Svetski coming soon, and Brandon making mention of it here:
We then took some time to compare Evolution VS utilitarianism, alongside the religionists mis-interpretation of darwinism.
- God or nature ?
- Creator or creating?
As a life form, we established that Bitcoin is absorbing all these ideas and reading a larger, complete, complex system.
Like how larger cells absorbed the mitochondria.
Life & fragmentation.
The story of humanity: Pockets of centralisation in broader networks.
Tribes, cities, even countries or continents.
This was SUCH a great discussion.
Lastly, I want to make a special Shout out to Guy Swann.
