Joe Rogan Experience Podcast 183 Jason Silva

 

Jason Silva:  We’re gonna go into the stars, man!

 

Joe Rogan:  We’re gonna live in the stars for sure?

 

Jason Silva:  Of course we are!  That’s the human.. that’s the next leap!

 

Joe Rogan:  Isn’t that what — said that got him in trouble?

 

<background> (laughs)

 

Jason Silva:  Well..I don’t.. I think he just said it coz he was taking at NASA.

 

Joe Rogan:  No, he was doing really well in the campaign trail that said he was gonna go to the moon.  People are like, “Fix Detroit.”  What are you going to the moon for?

 

Jason Silva:  I think.. No.. I.. I do think we didn’t stay in the caves, we didn’t stay with the limitations of biology, we won’t stay in the planet.  I mean I think.. It will be human to transcend our boundaries.  Like, it’s natural.

 

Joe Rogan:  If we figure out a way to geo-engineer some other planets and shit and people will move over there and Brian, but how could you say it’s impossible when you look at what we’ve been able to do here?

 

Brian Redban:  Oh dude, in just a short couple hundred years.

 

Jason Silva:  For two hundred dollars you can buy an iPhone, something that the richest person on the face of the planet fifty years ago couldn’t buy with all those billions.

 

Joe Rogan:  I know.  Isn’t that crazy?  What a crazy invention.

 

Brian Redban: If everyone on the other side of the country like, moved to the other side of the country, like if we’re all living on one side of the country, would the earth go out of its spin?

 

Joe Rogan:  Yes.  The earth would sink.  It would flip over.  Somebody asked that.  Yes, somebody actually asked that.

 

Jason Silva:  Just remember, when most of the world is water anyway, like, it’s mostly empty space, the planet.

Mostly empty space.  And more and more people are moving into cities, anyway.  So it’s gonna just be more and more empty space.

 

Joe Rogan:  Dude, somebody actually asked that, those like.. I forget.. It was like a recent thing, it was a story.

 

Jason Silva:  Really? Somebody asked that?

 

Joe Rogan: Yeah.  Well, there’s too many people on an island, and he was worried if they had all that people on one side, that the island would capsize.

 

Jason Silva:  That’s.. (laughs)

 

Joe Rogan:  It was a real.. a real person actually asked that question.  Like, dude.

 

Jason Silva:  You know what we gotta get you?  We gotta get you some T-shirts from the Imaginary Foundation.

 

Joe Rogan:  Okay.  No.

 

Brian Redban:  Do they exist?

 

<background> (laughs)

 

Joe Rogan:  The light of the day goes, too.

 

Brian Redban:  Here’s one of my favorite T-shirts.

 

Joe Rogan:  Wipe your ass with this, loser.

 

Jason Silva:  The Imaginary Foundation, they make a peril that celebrates the power of human imagination.  If you go to imaginaryfoundation.com

 

Joe Rogan:  And that is one of them?  The one you’re wearing right now?  It’s like a .. with a bunch of cool colors on them.

 

Jason Silva:  And I mean there’s this old guy underneath like holding it up

 

Joe Rogan:  Oh wow.  That’s pretty cool.

 

Jason Silva:  I mean their stuff is like the most gorgeous and inspired imagery that I’ve every come across.

Because it’s cosmic, but it’s also whimsical and psychedelic.  So it’s like singularity meets psychedelic rapture in image.

 

Joe Rogan:  Yeah.

 

Jason Silva:  It’s just I love them, man.  I’ll get them to send you a shirt.

 

Joe Rogan:  Okay.  Sounds awesome, man.  Yeah.  Uh.. how did you meet uh.. Ray Kurzweil?

 

Jason Silva:  I met him because um.. for five years I was hosting television show for Current, which is Al Gore’s cable channel.

 

Joe Rogan:  I heard it.  Him and Keith Olbermann had been

 

Jason Silva:  That’s the rumor, I guess.

 

Joe Rogan:  sprawling.. squa.. squabbling?

 

Jason Silva:  I left the network last year so.. I didn’t know about that.
