The one thing all humans have in common is that each of us wants to be happy, says Brother David Steindl-Rast, a monk and interfaith scholar. And happiness, he suggests, is born from gratitude. An inspiring lesson in slowing down, looking where you’re going, and above all, being grateful.

The human brain is puzzling -- it is curiously large given the size of our bodies, uses a tremendous amount of energy for its weight and has a bizarrely dense cerebral cortex. But: why? Neuroscientist Suzana Herculano-Houzel puts on her detective's cap and leads us through this mystery. By making "brain soup," she arrives at a startling conclusion.

	
	
	


	
	
	
	

	
	
 
	
	
	

	
	
	
	
	
	

	
	
	

	
	
	


	
	
	
	
There's an irony behind the latest efforts to extend human life: It's no picnic to be an old person in a youth-oriented society. Older people can become isolated, lacking meaningful work and low on funds. In this intriguing talk, Jared Diamond looks at how many different societies treat their elders -- some better, some worse -- and suggests we all take advantage of experience.
	
	
	


	
	
	
	
	

	
	
 
	
	
	

	
	
	
	
	
	

	
	
	

	
	
	


	
	
	
	
"Life comes at us very quickly, and what we need to do is take that amorphous flow of experience and somehow extract meaning from it." In this funny, enlightening talk, educational psychologist Peter Doolittle details the importance -- and limitations -- of your "working memory," that part of the brain that allows us to make sense of what's happening right now.
	
	
	


	
	
	
	

	
	
 
	
	
	

	
	
	
	
	
	

	
	
	

	
	
	


	
	
	
	
A billion people in the world lack access to all-season roads. Could the structure of the internet provide a model for how to reach them? Andreas Raptopoulos of Matternet thinks so. He introduces a new type of transportation system that uses electric autonomous flying machines to deliver medicine, food, goods and supplies wherever they are needed.

I was absolutely blown away. Peter was one of the first TED talkers on Psychology and how the "mind" works that did not overstep the boundaries of his understanding. Bravo! He described his observations of human behavior and gave us some good suggestions to improve our life experience, all very helpful and useful.

主講者是位僧人。
令我想起古代名言:日,三省吾身。(每天反省做了什麼、做錯什麼、沒做什麼)
也想起近代佳句:夜,三謝其恩。(睡前,至少感謝三個人。讓自己記得,「沒啥是理所當然的」)

而且也是佛教跟基督教對談的交椅。
