"No Special Now"
This is a 20 minute episode of Radiolab from 2007. It’s a mixed bag of reflections on time, starting with “there is not future or past”, to anecdotes about Einstein’s developement of relativity, and oddly it ends with reflections on free will and possible resolutions using the “many worlds interpretation” from quantum physics!
None of the topics is particularly new… but it’s easy to listen to as radiolab always is, and it packs A TON of bread-and-butter philosophical problems into a 20 minute show.
I’ll post some shorter clips from this show later on, with analyses of some of the concepts introduced. Good stuff!
