88 – FwTK: Are Words Colonizing the World?

Today we dive deep into the ideas behind a single chapter of a (weird but fascinating) book TK recommended called, “Sex, Drugs, Einstein, & Elves”.  It’s about language, and to what extent our vocabulary actually alters our reality, not merely our attempts to give expression to it.

Discussed in the episode: Marc Andreesson, George Lakoff, Ben Horowitz, Wayne Dyer, Seth Godin, Terrence McKenna, Clifford Pickover, Robert Anton Wilson, general semantics theory.

Recommendations: Lexicon, and, The Tyranny of Words.
