Here is my favourite quote from the presentation (~17:30):

    "The self is only understood only through its properties. You only know what you think and believe based on your experiences, which are themselves an inscrutable stew of nature, nurture, environment, action, reaction, expectation, rebellion, and probably a fair amount of luck and entropy."


Mike is great, I really like his videos on the idea channel. It's crazy how he can push ideas to the extreme. On top of that, he always makes me discover new things like the Nightvale podcast. I'll definitely watch that video when I have time.
