You can skip around ’til he talks about the car engine. One of the best parts. and towards the end when he talks about The problem with University Thinking.

Systems thinking may not be the “be all” of everything, but having an attitude of systems thinking REALLY helps in divorcing yourself from passionate attachment to particular processes because you no longer see them by their categories but you see them as systems as part of a greater whole. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=OqEeIG8aPPk

 

Oh, I bring up systems thinking because I see humanity and all of its efforts as systems influencing each other, which includes mathematics, sciences, philosophy, education, technology, the internet, religion, daily life, etc. Marvelous mental imagry in my head.. I wish I could draw.
