Humans are binary animals. It’s built in to how we think because of our “wetware” – which means neurons only have two states: fired or not.
This has tremendous implications for how we arrange nested decisions and how we “bias ourselves” in certain directions. Yet little of this is out in front of the public to consider
Instead, we live in a world where the majority of our binary decisions are pre-packaged so that corporations can profit from our following “their script.” “Tell your doctor” and “Buy one today.” It’s that way in investments, as well. Binarism, if you will. So, this morning we toss around some ideas on this point and I think you’ll find it thought-provoking as hell.
