We are a species defined by our tools. Our cognition extends beyond our fingers, branching into the technology we hold and the institutions we build. But everything we wield changes us in turn. If we want to make sense of where we find ourselves in this moment in history, we can begin by exploring the unique relationship we have with what we build. It can show us where we come from, and where we might be headed.As the US election approaches and COVID forces lockdowns around the world, we cloister inside and spend more time online. And as we do, many

I happen to be a bit of a student of history. As such, I’ve noticed that what we are witnessing in the United States (and much of the West, as I understand it) is a case study in the break down of civil society and the emergence of civil conflict. I imagine that if you could see into the living rooms and street corners of the American, French and Russian revolutions or the American, Spanish or English Civil Wars, you would find a lot that is similar to the current dynamic.But this time something new is happening.

It appears that at long last the popular sentiment seems to be boiling with enough intensity to (maybe) do something about the problem of social media.Good. It is high time.But, even if it turns out that we have reached the point where we are ready to do something, we come face to face with the reasonably difficult question of what we should do. And, in order to know what we should do, we must first have a good understand of what is, in fact, the matter.I have spent a great deal of time over the past several decades endeavoring to boil down the

I would like to explore what I think is a useful distinction between “thinking” and a quite different phenomenon that might be best referred to as a “simulation of thinking”.First a quick clarification of two core concepts. This is easy.If you remember learning how to drive a car or ride a bike, you likely recall transitioning from the uncertain, unsure, exploratory moments of early learning to the increasingly effortless, unconscious, process that now allows you to drive from work to home without even noticing that you did so.In the first case (learning) we are in a costly, awkward and error prone “explore”
