Other Life

Nick Land is a British philosopher and one of the main figures in the school of thought known as accelerationism. He is currently writing a book about the philosophical implications of Bitcoin. We talked accelerationism, cybernetics, ideology, the evolution of Nick’s perspective, Deleuze and Guattari, artificial intelligence, capitalism, Moldbug, mathematics, religion, blockchain, and more. We had some unavoidable connection problems, so there are some clicking sounds throughout.
