Wow! I cannot believe how many things I dip into with Eran Dror! AI consciousness, Buddhism, sense of self, the future of religion, the ethics of algorithms and how we counter this, and religion for atheists! We really unpack what it means to be human, what our needs and our weaknesses are and what we need to be our best self, the need for connection. We mention Sunday assembly and soon I will be interviewing someone from the Sunday Assembly to look more into this - it's Church for atheists! Watch this space!
Here is a link to Alain De Botton's book that Eran mentioned too!
