Jun 21, 2020 Episode 19

This is Part 2 of my talk with the absolutely brilliant Dr. Dan Siegel. Listen to Part 1 here.

Dr. Dan Siegel is an internationally acclaimed author, award-winning educator, and child psychiatrist. He is currently a clinical professor of psychiatry at the UCLA School of Medicine where he also serves as a co-investigator at the Center for Culture, Brain, and Development and co-director of the Mindful Awareness Research Center. He is also the Executive Director of the Mindsight Institute, an educational center devoted to promoting insight, compassion, and empathy in individuals, families, institutions and communities. His five New York Times bestsellers are Aware: The Science and Practice of Presence; Mind: A Journey to the Heart of Being Human; Brainstorm: The Power and Purpose of the Teenage Brain; and two books with Tina Payne Bryson, Ph.D.: The Whole-Brain Child and No-Drama Discipline.

In Part 2 of our talk, we discuss:

  • The mathematics of the mind
  • The concept of emergence
  • The inevitable interdependence found in the system called 'Life on Earth'
  • The Pando Forest analogy
  • The etymological meaning of religion
  • What it means to live in the Realm of Nouns vs. the Realm of Verbs
  • The definition of energy as the general process of the movement from possibility to actuality
  • The Generator of Diversity, or G.O.D. churning possibility into reality
  • The incredible story of Dan comforting his late father on death. "We start as a possibility. We actualize for 100 years. Then, we dissolve back into a sea of possibility."
