I recently picked up this hobby of watching pop education videos on youtube. History, science, technology, futurology, philosophy etc. It really passes the time. And a quick 10 minute tidbit is very relaxing.

I especially find the science, technology, futurology, AI videos very uplifting from the usual pessimism I dwell on.

Basically a transhumanism video but it goes into a good degree of detail about different kinds of stem cells and how they could possibly be used in the future to improve or extend life.

I thought this video was very interesting. It is about wood block printing, a process in which they carve blocks of wood that work sort of like stamps to make very detailed designs on papers that can be mass produced. The guy's enthusiasm is kind of infectious.

I remember watching that a few months (or was it years) ago.
Good video on the subject, and the presenter has a calm yet interesting way of presenting the information.

It isn't a educational video, is the point.
It is just a hour and 40 minute philosophic rant from a guy who has been doing pseudo-intilectual rants on YouTube for almost a decade.

You didn't even watch the video. Funny because he even explains why you didn't and why you're acting that way.

 No.48515

I used to keep up with over a dozen of quality channels but I stopped a while ago and barely remember their names. Instead, sets of more longform lectures on a single topic became more appealing to me. You don't have to watch the whole lecture at once and there is a sense of progression as you go through a course. And it doesn't smell like mass-media made with norms in mind as much. Example: https://www.youtube.com/playlist?list=PLA20B690583E9931C

I watched enough to see that it wasn't a educational video and was exactly like all his other videos.
It simply doesn't really fit the thread.

This is all pop sci garbage that teaches nothing but theost surface level details . You'll never meant anything this way. Utter waste of time.

Here is a talk by Sabine Hossenfelder, a German theoretical physicist. I really enjoyed her book "Lost in Math: How Beauty Leads Physics Astray." It was interesting and genuinely funny. Her YouTube channel is also great.

Very interesting discussion.
>Mathematical Challenges to Darwin’s Theory of Evolution with Berlinski, Meyer, and Gelernter
Based on new evidence and knowledge that functioning proteins are extremely rare, should Darwin’s theory of evolution be dismissed, dissected, developed or replaced with a theory of intelligent design?

Has Darwinism really failed? Peter Robinson discusses it with David Berlinski, David Gelernter, and Stephen Meyer, who have raised doubts about Darwin’s theory in their two books and essay, respectively The Deniable Darwin, Darwin’s Doubt, and “Giving Up Darwin” (published in the Claremont Review of Books).

whats some good topics to stupid eductional wise? Looking for inspiration.

Pop science videos aren't supposed to teach anything to any one, not even at a surface level. They're religious videos preaching how great and powerful science is to the followers while never exposing them to anything of real depth or value. These videos are like learning the alphabet and claiming it's the same as writing a grand novel.

Love these scientific tidbits of information, however, I hate the constant bombardment of politics in modern videos. It really ruins the experience. Also hate reading the comment section of YouTube videos. Need to cut that habit, trying to by only watching YouTube on my tablet with Newpipe. Newpipe disables comments.

 No.49265

>>49264
YouTube comments have been generally garbage forever. You aren't missing anything by not bothering to read them the vast majority of the time.
I personally don't.

Polite sage for being slightly off topic.
