Evolution, Covid - 19 And Natural Selection With Spencer Wells: EMP Podcast 55

Today we're joined by geneticist, anthropologist, author, entrepreneur, and adjunct professor at the University of Texas at Austin, Spencer Wells! He's going to help us take a closer look at human evolution and share his insights on the current state of the coronavirus pandemic. Liked it? Like it! ️ Loved it? Subscribe! (if you haven't already) --------------- ️ SHOW NOTES 00:00 - Intro 05:47 - Considering Covid-19 13:39 - Evolutionary Myths and Misconceptions 29:14 - Risk and Immunity 34:21 - Engineering vs Complex Systems 41:14 - Natural Selection 46:46 - The Origins of Europeans and Puerto Ricans 01:09:29 - The Disease Drive 01:18:02 - Outro A big reason that we lean into the study of play so much is because it’s a profoundly powerful learning system that exists to drive us towards our most genetically relevant skills and abilities. Children climb, jump, roughhouse, throw and creatively use objects like sticks and stones because those physical abilities have been crucial for the survival of our species for an incredibly long time. Yet biology and evolution are incredibly complex and when it comes to human health, it can be easy to fall into the trap of reductionism. There will never be any diet or movement routine that can act as a definitive cure-all for the entire population. Even routines that work wonders for one person can be ineffective or detrimental to another person, so it’s highly important to keep an objective mindset and pay attention to nuance when looking to build a healthy and sustainable lifestyle. The fact that our evolutionary heritage is both highly relevant and staggeringly complex means that we should look to experts like our guest Spencer Wells to draw insights from that can help ground our understanding and make better decisions about our health as modern day humans. ️ See full notes on the companion blog: https://www.evolvemoveplay.com/emp-podcast-ep-55-spencer-wells/ --------------- ️ Nature Immersion and Movement Retreats: Nothing can take you deeper into a truly alive movement practice than one of our very exclusive movement retreats!

Meaning, Balance and Spirituality With John Vervaeke: EMP Podcast 54

John Vervaeke is back on the podcast! Today we'll be having a balanced and thoughtful discussion on spirituality and how it can help or hinder us on our path to living a more meaningful life. Liked it? Like it! ️ Loved it? Subscribe!

In a lot of ways this is a continuation of the concepts we presented last time John was on the show; chiefly of the importance of the sage archetype for it’s expert ability to understand and draw wisdom from many sources— even those that may seem to be at complete odds with one another. This is a staggeringly difficult process, and it’s made even harder by the fact that many of the guiding doctrines and institutions we have available to us do little to cultivate a broad and balanced viewpoint of the world. In fact many actively guide us away from that balance. So in today’s conversation we’re going to dive into some of the ways this shows up in our culture and how it has a lasting effect on our ability to find meaning in life and develop deep connections to ourselves and the world around us. ️ See full notes on the companion blog: https://www.evolvemoveplay.com/meaning-balance-spirituality-john-v-ep-54/ ------------------------------ ️ Nature Immersion and Movement Retreats: Nothing can take you deeper into a truly alive movement practice than one of our very exclusive movement retreats!

At the very least we run the risk of closing ourselves off to new lessons and practices that can be hugely beneficial to us.
