Homo Deus & Westworld

Hello, I keep waiting for someone to mention the book “Homo Deus” by Yuval Noah Harari during your podcast as it relates to Westworld. I don’t know if any of you have read it, but I feel like the writers of Westworld must have. While in my opinion it’s not...

Big D confused the hell out of me

Hi Joe, Jerry and Sugar Kane, Listening to the deep dive for The Winter Line got very confusing when Big D reached for his tinfoil. I am going to have to listen again more carefully with a notepad. However the assertion that the timeline doesn’t seem to match up is...

SWS DoD real world simulation

Hey, Just to finish a couple odds and ends Ash. To clarify my end, I am Vincent C, hence my email address in my name. My wife has the desktop setup in her account, hence youtube handle Gigi Bouse. Sorry just want to make clear. So part of PROMIS is...

Westworld 3-2

Hello all, Listening to the deep dive gave me a couple ideas. Gene mentioned that winter line means an atmospheric inversion. After a bit of googling, I found that the winterline is an atmospheric inversion that causes a second horizon, a mirage. You can only see this horizon from high...

You are generally the best but…

Three things: 1. fine you didn’t like it – don’t belabor it – that doesn’t help me enjoy the show. 2. My wife would say any show is tedious when you re-watch it – of course, you know what happened 3. I enjoy having people who are really knowledgeable talk...

A little more evidence for Big D’s Tinfoil

Hi all! I’ve been listening to you for many years and have always loved your perspective on this show as well as GOT! Today, as I was listening to Ashley respond to Big D’s tinfoil (which I LOVED listening to BTW), something dawned on me that adds to the “evidence”...

Erich Fromm’s The Sane Society

Hey, Great podcast this week. I think I may have enjoyed it more than the episode. Your discussion of Free Will and Capitalism reminded me of a great book by Erich Fromm called “The Sane Society”. https://en.m.wikiquote.org/wiki/The_Sane_Society Fromm argued that the individual is really just a creation of Society to...

Westworld: Telegraph for The Winter Line

Hi Crew, Love the podcast, it’s truly my fave. I have a few thoughts on the last episode, if you’ll indulge me, but I guess that’s what you’re paid the big bucks for… I’m pretty annoyed with the discussion of “free will” as if it’s even worthy of discussion. Just...

Cornerstones

Hey guys! Westworld s3 premiered on the first anniversary of my wife of ten years suddenly passing. She was very much looking forward to that day and was actually the one that turned me on to the Shat Family. Needless to say it was a heavy week but I decided...

Is Rohobo acting like HAL in 2001?

Big D’s theory about Rohoboam acting to preserve its existence and purpose in the world seems suspiciously like the same problem HAL had in 2001. Its prime directive to protect the mission to Jupiter at all costs conflicted with the threat posed by its human subjects to shut it down...
