Jeremy Lent "The Patterning Instinct"

Ep. 81


Playing for Team Human today is Jeremy Lent, author of The Patterning Instinct. Lent’s expansive research looks at the variety of ways cultures throughout history have patterned meaning into the cosmos. In excavating these patterns, Lent shares how humans might retrieve those metaphors that amplify altruism and shared intentionality. Together, Rushkoff and Lent explore the question of what makes humans unique and how we might leverage our patterning instinct to foster a future characterized by deeper connection rather than alienation. 

Douglas begins today’s show with a monologue on cultural immunity. He questions the impulse to solve the problems of democracy by simply building better tech. How might we build resilience in people rather than just in our gadgets and algorithms?

This show features intro and outro music thanks to Fugazi and Dischord Records. Mid-way you heard our friend R.U. Sirius featured in episode 31 https://teamhuman.fm/episodes/ep-31-r-u-Sirius/
