792: Dark Matter
It’s often difficult to understand why bright people leave good positions in life. Moreover, they generally struggle to explain the decision as well. On today’s show, Alastair shares that this difficultly stems from the phenomenon of dark matter, and that some things in life can only be identified by their opposite. The absence of their desires is then the cause of their action. In today’s world, we often label this as boredom.
During the presentation, he covers:
- Dark matter as the physicist’s idiopathy
- Why we leave good positions in life
- Things that can only be identified by their opposite
- The power of repurposing our work
