“We are on the brink of an evolutionary shift as significant as early hominids and the creation of stone tools. The civilization model that we have is either self terminating or self transcending, but cannot continue either way…”

Today’s guest: Daniel Schmachtenberger

His big idea: Understanding evolution and the crucial next step for humanity.

Daniel’s central interest is civilization design: developing new capacities for sense-making and choice-making, individually and collectively, to support conscious sustainable evolution...to bring about a world commensurate with our highest potentials. He blogs on these topics at https://civilizationemerging.com/

Daniel is also a Co-Founder at the Neurohacker Collective and Director of Research and Development, where he is focused on developing processes and technologies for advancing medicine and human optimization. He is particularly focused on personalized medicine, adequate approaches to complex illness, and deepening our knowledge of how the human regulatory systems function, how they break down, and how they can be supported to function with greater resilience.
