In this episode, Danielle invites Perry Willis to join the conversation. Today, they talk about extraterrestrial life, UFOs, and why the government is working so hard to keep everything hidden from the citizenry. Skeptics will appreciate the discussion on the Backfire Effect, and why understanding the cause of this effect can help us learn to think more critically about topics we are so eager to dismiss.
Perry also shares ways in which we can learn to go from a reactive state of mind to a more reflective, present state of mind. Adrenaline blocks our pathway to critical thought and we need ways to transform our evolutionary egotistical ways of protecting our pride. The aim is to take you from skeptic to believer.
