      Hy Michael, what do you prepare for us in the future, another season of mind field?

    4. Fully Over Yall

      The next video is just gonna be "shut up and do communism!"

    5. Bradley Ticehurst

      If reason comes from available information, isn't it crucial to consider where the majority get their information? If one was to reverse engineer reason by curating information for the masses (mainstream media/social media ect) one could hijack the process to produce a desired result, correct?

      Oh noes! How would a technologically hyper-advanced civilization will ever cope with...a slightly higher probability of storms and droughts! 🤔

      Freaking loving this video, I've been thinking about all this stuff lately. Dang.

      How to reduce the emissions of the factories? Outsource the factories to the Moon!

      What a great video and I just met Kialo, the platform for rational debate, yesterday. This must be a sign

      This is the best youtube channel. This is how youtube should look like, instead it's full of garbage, but treasures can be found inside this garbage dump, and this is vsauce.

    18. SotraEngine4

      16:33 And endurance running. We are some of the best species on endurance running

    19. SotraEngine4

      14:15 Soms people actually do do that consciously, because the brain didn’t invest in developing that system Tbh Inferring that everyone does that is ableist towards people with autism It would be better to say that it means most people, as there are exceptions

    20. Random Guy

      A HyperObject like Nazis trying to stifle evolution. "Climate Disaster" you mean the Global Warm-onger by all those nukes going off? There is so much bitch like behavior in this video. This video should have been about the evils of opterant conditioning necromancy, heuristical logic exploits, assertivism mutual assured destruction, and the NLP agenda.

    21. Antylics

      cancel culture idiots on twitter need this video so badly

      thank you for this video

    24. AniKhang

      I have literally never heard of a lottocracy but what a wild idea, yeesh

    25. DRISZI


    26. Dux Angus

      A lottocracy sounds very interesting and I think it would be quite effective even possibly at a larger scale, but WHO controls the random selection? If it's possible for a jury and or judge to be bought out or "personally" selected by one of the sides in a court case and politicians at any level, so to can the randomly selected people for the lottocracy.

    27. Shashank Laur

      You make NLname worth it. They should be grateful.

    31. Iz Just Meh

      i feel like i wasn't allowed to watch this because i would know the secret

    32. Dexter J

      Every fucking time.. Thanks V sauce for reminding me that not constantly adapting makes me stupid. The end of this made me cry, when you hear people articulating thoughts you've cultivated like they were the last tomato

    33. Rik Thunder

      took me a bit. but I now understand the married/unmarried puzzle after a few minutes of thinking -.-° not quite immediately though.

    34. Madison Wisconsin

      Sounds like Vsauce is a fan of big brother making our decisions for us since we are apparently unreasonable.

    35. IJakeMe

      You know what doesn't have reason? " Justice " I can throw myself out the window call 9-11 and just say that the guy below me did this to me and he'll go to Jail for a long time where is your reasoning now huh?

    36. crimson90

      Ah, yes, Pepe Sylvia. He doesn't exist, but he's everywhere.

    37. spambot71

      14:13 so i guess he's not autistic then

    38. Psinfoni

      a video packed with many REASONS that many things are wrong in this world, cuz its not often about reasoning its about money and power... and a true honest discussion about facts is sometimes hard when some scientists are corrupt and paid to state false information so that the outcome is that what some powerful person wanted it to be. i like the idea of tha randomness that surely could give better results than this where only the billionaires do everything they want and if they do it wrong... well heck delete that information with all the power you got so that only the good parts of you show true... (like gates... wasnt he on "child pleasure island" with his millionaire friend who tortured a lot of children... then his friend killed himself and his wife stated it all after she was sent to prison... wonder what the REASON was to go on that private island) if the people would be all like vsauce it would be great but sadly theres only one vsauce ever born

    39. System Reality

      How can i add turkish subtitles to this video ?

    40. Thisisntanoption

      Nice, the first city shown growing is las vegas

    41. Afif Farhati

      Anyone wants to actually discuss the video instead of memes like the rest of the comments? I want to seek more knowledge and thoughts about the subject but i don't know where to start...

    42. Mr. computer

      All fun and games till you realise hes actually a ancient god

    43. Jackson Masiel

      A lot of these same topics are touched on in Moral Tribes by Joshua Greene. Super interesting stuff

    44. Boss Boy

      The issue is tolerance, people are not torerant of thoughts that aren't the same as theirs, which unfortunately leads to people shouting

    45. Joel Bondurant

      Bitcoin fixes this.

    46. Jimmy Baller

      The great sin of reason is not admitting fallibility. Great content. Listened to the whole thing.

    47. Rogann McFall

      Bill gates is a monster

    48. Adil Hussain

      These videos used to be more appealing and entertaining.

    49. Natdl

      How many people turned it off when they heard the name Bill Gates…😂

    50. jamesmiller

      new vsauce video, new existential crisis

    51. Saksham

      No one is taking about that hand behind Michael 5:57

    52. Nick Schmneck

      The insinuations to political figures and the leftist ideology is very evident in this video, sad to see from what i thought was an unbiased science channel

    53. NerdWorldNinja FoldingSpaceTime

      In a Quantum Reality We Already Are The Ancients...

    54. Attackoramic

      Vsauce: how do you rethink everything? Me: *grabs a bat*

    55. BlockyShapes

      “We will all someday be the ancients” yes, as long as we cut down on those emissions you were talking about. If not, we might not be ancient to that many people.

    56. Fernando Barros

      How? Ecosocialism.

    58. Mahesh Bandara Wijerathna

      This is proof that NLname content can have actual value. Even if it's just a guy sitting and talking to the camera for 30 minutes.

    59. Dennis Albert

      Reasoning = algorithm

    60. John Thimakis

      Thanks so much for sharing. 😎👌🏼

    61. gooneybird808

      fuck ya dog! well said

    62. Boss Boy

      Its a bleak future

    63. Lilian Tavares

      you’re actually arriving to the opposite conclusion from Zizek

    64. Yeahdoh

      What a great video

    65. Joepags23

      Great job Michael you've earned awesome elephant status

    66. Biomirth

      Sometimes out of frustration I want Michael to be wrong, but he knocked this so far out of the park I'm going to not be back till the 11th inning fetching it.

    67. Tama Huntley

      The amount of people that don't think about this stuff on their own it's funny

    68. Michael Gabel

      This is a great argument for conservatism. Based on time tested principles.

      1. GonnSolo

        Did you watch the video?

    69. xVect

      When Michael said that you don’t actually analyze people’s individual body movements and body language to come to conclusion that they’re upset, he obviously doesn’t have bpd.

    70. fool

      I respect the hell out of this channel and won't stop watching but goddamn does it piss me off seeing bill gates here. Who the fuck cares about intellectual property and profig in the middle of a global pandemic.

    71. Hao Asakura

      AKA: his telling all the Libs to leave their eco chamber.

    72. T T

      Phlogiston. Goodbye.

    73. Crimea River

      This was a fantastic video. We need to end online censorship and banning. We need to bring ALL voices into the space and be willing and vulnerable enough to modify bad ideas, even when they're our own.

    74. Khatharr Malkavian

      This was pretty good until you said Bill Gates.

    75. akaaka

      Never thought vsauce would bring a better political system. This is enlighten scientificism

    76. Justin

      Man doing what is right in his own eyes. Better to fear God and keep his commandments.

    77. Jonathon Jubb

      "Or is it?.." only took two minutes. Love it!

    78. Lody Cawson

      this is the best vsauce video in history and i’ve been watching since 9 y/o. 20 y/o now. gods bless and stay true everyone we will change and get better! get on the same page the best we can! we have a planet to help! we always did! tick tock! - a future dr and present thinker ❤️

      International Collaboration Days sounds like such a great idea omg

    82. HyDeph 0

      the collective consciousnesses, all our minds are connected throughout the ether

    83. Tytus Bombus

      eh i still belive that its technological progress that will give us sthe power to not worry about things like climate, i mean i hope it will come fast enough ;d/:D

    84. toastboii

      "Hey Vsauce! Michael here!" are the words that make my day

    85. DownwindFish

      "..guides us to less suffering" I could use a little less of that right now

    86. Marius Jenkins

      New Vsauce video : Win Click and see it's 30 min long : Double win I need to go get a fresh drink and snack for this one and enjoy it properly... Edit: Just finished the video and realized just how much I miss the old Vsauce... This was a great video and felt a lot like one from about 3-4 years ago... One can only hope we start getting more episodes like this on a more regular basis...

    87. Thomas McBriarty

      VSauce is one of the most valuable (to humanity) channels on NLname.

    88. Sus Doctor

      My brain is also a blob ty for noticing uwu *Pin and favorite you wont :)*

    89. Jacob Persico

      That was really good. I love the conclusion at the end!

    90. phlaxyr

      This video is so good, it should be required viewing for political science majors. Like damn

    91. Gustavo Labegalini

      By Sperner's Lemma...

    92. FMSpeedart

      BRO, I literally designed a campaign for uni that's exactly what the recommendations at the end of this video were. It has to be about civil discussions. Plus it takes people out of the global social media platforms and makes them focus on the logic and resonaning that their own environment needs. Nice vid!

    93. Cristian Rivera

      Hello! I don't think this would be seen by Michael, but I hope someone who can help me with this can contact with me, i'm currently in Colombia, I would like to contact with a human rights defender somehow, since from my country it's impossible at the moment, people are being killed by the government in protests, it's stones and sticks against guns, they are shooting at us, there is no resistance, they are censoring everything, we need help and the police cannot help us because they are the killers, we need international help #soscolombia I would like to give further information to whoever can help me. Hundreds are missing, more than 40 people have been killed by the police, girls have been assaulted by police and anti-disturb agents

    94. Rebotxd

      Wish I could talk like this in my expositions

    95. Austin Mackell

      There's a general problem with all these cognitive experiments though, in that the stakes are really low for the participants, and the reasoning takes place over a short time. When it comes to things that matter, we might think quite differently, and when we think about things on multiple occassions over time, in different moods each time, etc, we might perform in a qualitatively different way... This is the same issue as with IQ tests, which test for "sprint" capacity, when most of the really important intellectual work is more like a marathon.

    96. Luc Guerber

      You're a role model Michael

    97. Dylannskates

      i dont get why there are dislikesssss

      1. ImmaSingWhatIWant

        There always will be on a video that reaches millions. Actually, assuming that there wouldn't be is kind of counter to one of the messages of the video; people think differently. But in this case specifically, the biggest reasons are probably: 1. Manmade climate change 2. Evolution 3. Bill Gates

      2. rafflesmaos

        Basically "Philanthropy man bad" without usually having logically sound reasons as to why.
