Ep. 94: fiction, flow, and imagining the impossible. | Steven Kotler.

Watch our interview with Steven Kotler on Youtube.

Flow is a well-known and valuable psychological state in which time seems to drop away and you become completely immersed in the present moment. Though its usefulness in achieving individual excellence has been studied extensively, much less attention has been paid to how it can aid in cooperation. Well tonight we're joined by a guest who has tried to fill that gap by writing "The Devil's Dictionary", a fascinating novel which also explores topics around climate change, mass extinction, and the future of humanity. Steven Kotler is one of the world’s foremost experts on human peak performance and the New York Times bestselling author of "The Art of Impossible" and "The Rise of Superman".
