      • Religion, evolution, and the ecstasy of self-transcendence

        by @notthisbody and @jonhaidt http://notthisbody.com/ This video was created to accompany Prof. Jonathan Haidt's talk on TED titled //Religion, evolution, and the ecstasy of self-transcendence// see the full talk http://www.ted.com/talks/jonathan_haidt_humanity_s_stairway_to_self_transcendence.html *the views expressed in these videos do not necessarily represent the perspectives of notthisbody* “The most powerful force ever known on this planet is human cooperation — a force for construction and destruction.” Jonathan Haidt Psychologist Jonathan Haidt asks a simple, but difficult question: why do we search for self-transcendence? Why do we attempt to lose ourselves? In a tour through the science of evolution by group selection, he proposes a provocative answer. Jonathan Haidt studies how -- and why -- we evolved to be moral. By understanding more about our moral roots, his hope is that we can learn to be civil and open-minded. At TED2012 he’s combining his work on morality with his work on happiness to talk about “hive psychology” – the ability that humans have to lose in groups pursuing larger projects, almost like bees in a hive. This hivish ability Is crucial, he argues, for understanding the origins of morality, politics, and religion. These are ideas that Haidt develops at greater length in his new book, The Righteous Mind: Why Good People are Divided by Politics and Religion.

        • TED 2012 Full Spectrum Audition - One Second Everyday

          UPDATE 4: I DID IT!! Dream come true :) http://blog.ted.com/2012/03/02/filming-one-second-every-day-cesar-kuriyama-at-ted2012/ UPDATE 3: I'M A SPEAKER AT TED2012!!!!!! http://blog.ted.com/2012/01/11/ted2012-speaker-lineup-revealed/ UPDATE 2: Q&A right after TED talk! http://blog.ted.com/2011/05/25/the-power-of-one-second-qa-with-cesar-kuriyama/ UPDATE: I GOT IT!!!! http://blog.ted.com/2011/05/09/announcing-the-finalists-in-teds-full-spectrum-auditions/ Hi TED. My name is Cesar Kuriyama. I’m a director, a computer graphics VFX artist, and an educator. TED Talks have changed my life. Inspired by Stefan Sagmeister’s talk on “The Power of Time Off,“ I recently decided to save enough money to leave my day job and take a year off to travel and explore more personal and creative endeavors. Among these projects is what I call One Second Everyday. The concept is simple: every day I record and capture a single second of video—just something interesting about that day. I will compile these tiny slices of my life into a single, continuous video. But what started out as a fun way to chronicle my year off grew quickly into a catalyst that forced me to reevaluate how I approach my day-to-day life. Soon after I started the project, I realized that I couldn’t even spend a couple of days on the couch without detracting from the whole video. Footage of my typical routine was, frankly, boring. The One Second Everyday project has helped me to maintain my creative drive, as I am constantly attempting to capture something noteworthy. It has become a perpetual reminder to wake up and seize the day. As of this writing, the project has been underway for just over two months, and because of the positive influence it has on me each day, I am already planning to continue recording one second of each day for the rest of my life. This means that if I live to see my eightieth birthday, I’ll leave behind a five-hour video that summarizes fifty years of my life. After Memorial Day, I’ll be leaving New York City to take a three-month road-trip around the US and Canada. Two months later I’ll take an extended trip to Peru, and if everything goes according to plan, I’ll then set off on a sixteen-stop journey around the world. I can’t wait to see what just one second of the days to come will look like. The completion of the first year of this project will culminate in the launch of a website that will encourage and provide help for others to record their own one second every day, and supply ways to share their projects. With some funding, I would love to design and build a smartphone app that would automate the process of compiling each daily video. Thanks to the new generation of smartphones, more and more people have an HD-capable video camera handy at all times, making this project widely accessible. I started this project on my thirtieth birthday, when I began my year off. The first year of this project will conclude on my thirty-first birthday, February 20th, exactly one week before TED2012 Full Spectrum. I would love for a TED audience to be the first to see the finished six-minute compilation. Thank you for your consideration. Cesar Kuriyama

          • Moments at Coffee Common

            This is for the most part behind the scenes footage at Coffee Common, TED 2012. I'd like to say a big thank you to all of the Coffee Common organizers for allowing Chris and I to be a part of this beautiful event, and thank all the great baristas I had the privilege to work along-side this week. It was a great experience, and given the opportunity, I'd do it again in a heartbeat. Please note: I was limited in what footage I could take as I wasn't able to record attendees, nor during busy periods because it was too crazy. I also missed about half of the baristas taking part in coffee common, so this is by no means a complete video of everyone.

                There are few devices more personal than one's mobile phone and so it stands to reason that the kinds of things you want to find on it may well be ... well ... of a personal nature. So imagine that you need to find a place of worship in a strange town you're visiting. Wouldn't it be nice if you could get everything on that topic and then find an Instant App with the answers? Yes it would. And thus, today's Daily Discovery...

                  I've been running while here in Long Beach for TED 2012 which is great; but this morning my body just didn't feel like that pounding pounding experience. No problem, I can easily find a yoga class nearby thanks to Everything. In fact, if I wanted to, I could see if there was a yoga studio that any of my new TEDster pals had gone to ... thanks to an awesome Daily Discovery on Foursquare.

                    So in a previous Daily Discovery I was trying to find a synagogue in Long Beach where I could observe my father's yarzheit. I found synagogues, but it turned out none had services early enough for me to attend. So I did the next best thing, I went down to the beach at sunrise ...and thanks to Everything I was able to find the prayers I needed!

                      I'm pretty lucky. I get to attend some of the most interesting events and conferences in the world, and as a result get to meet some of the most amazing people. Many of those folks are on the stages as speakers, and while their names and jobs may be something of which I'm aware, oftentimes I just don't always have the deeper insight to their background. And let's face it, bios in conference programs are usually pretty weak. Thanks to Everything, I've been managing to learn a lot about the speakers, which has been awesome for starting conversations with them when I meet them over coffee during breaks!

                      What are Tags?


                      Tags are keywords that describe videos. For example, a video of your Hawaiian vacation might be tagged with "Hawaii," "beach," "surfing," and "sunburn."
