ML192 Iain McGilchrist on The Matter with Things, Paths to Understanding & Answering Big Questions
MetaLearn: Who are we? What is the world? How can we understand consciousness, matter, space and time? Do we have a purpose? What is the divine? Our answers to these questions are important because our view of humanity and the world around us shapes what we do and how we live.
+ Continue reading
While our current perspective has allowed us to make remarkable progress in increasing our material wealth and extending our lifespans, the costs of this worldview are catching up with us, including the assault on nature and destruction of culture. What we need is a new way of thinking – one that takes the best of the progress we have made but restores the important values we seem to have lost.

Iain McGilchrist has taken on this challenge. In his new book The Matter with Things, which forms the basis for today’s conversation, Iain uses the disciplines of neurology, philosophy and physics to tackle the big questions and paint a new picture of humanity and the world.

In the episode, we speak about:

– The key differences between the left and right hemispheres and how they shape your view of the world
– The 4 pathways to understanding – science, reason, intuition & imagination
– How the big problems we face including the assault on Nature, destruction of Culture and dismissal of the Divine are all related

We also talk about the significance of morality, the nature of truth and beauty and the intersection of science and religion. This was a genuinely perspective shifting conversation that will change the way you look at yourself and the world around you.

Is Moral Space Curved?
This is a clip from the May 2022 live Q&A session with Iain McGilchrist and members of Channel McGilchrist who have the opportunity to ask questions in advance or post them in the chat during the session itself. The question asked by one member is in response to a seminar with Iain in April 2022 with The Centre for Myth, Cosmology and the Sacred, on A Sense of the Sacred, where he mentioned that “moral space is curved”. The question, “During the presentation for the lecture on A Sense of the Sacred on April 24th, Dr McGilchrist stated that moral space is curved. The concept is intriguing, indeed. An elaboration of this idea interests me” is relayed by Mary Attwood who helps to moderate these sessions for Channel McGilchrist, and the member who asked the question can also be heard slightly later in the discussion.

Look out. Orlando Wood on the brain, advertising and a world that’s turning inwards
Orlando Wood (Chief Innovation Officer at System1 Group) talks to Mary Attwood from Channel McGilchrist about his latest book, Look out (Amazon UK), an advertising guide for a world that’s turning inwards. Drawing on the work of Dr Iain McGilchrist, Look out is a study of attention and its implications for advertising. It describes how our attention narrows following periods of technological disruption and how this can result in increased levels of detachment, fear and aggression – as Wood puts it – in culture turning inwards. This is the context in which advertising is being made today, and Wood reveals this narrowing of attention in the advertising sounds and images around us – the rigid ‘stare’, the loss of human vitality, the overuse of the word, the rhythmic soundtrack, its stasis and symmetry. Using attention, emotion and business effectiveness data, Look out shows how this kind of advertising, far from drawing people in, pushes audiences away. When companies move online they lose their physical availability, and so too their mental availability. Brand building advertising therefore becomes more important because it maintains the mental availability that is otherwise lost. To create the effective and memorable advertising that’s needed, Look out urges advertisers to capture the ‘broad-beam’ attention of audiences. The book describes how this can be achieved through advertising with an appreciation of human uniqueness, movement and ‘betweenness’, with character, incident and place, with humour, music and warmth of colour. But to succeed the industry must broaden its attentional plane, Wood argues – it must look out.

The Master and his Emissary
Why is the brain so clearly and profoundly divided? The difference between right and left hemispheres has been puzzled over for centuries. We now know the left hemisphere is detail-oriented, prefers mechanisms to living things, and is inclined to self-interest, where the right hemisphere has greater breadth, flexibility and generosity. And yet, despite the left hemisphere’s inferior grasp of reality, why is it increasingly taking precedence in the modern world, with potentially disastrous consequences?

The Matter with Things by Dr Iain McGilchrist was published on 9th November 2021
“It has been a very interesting experience writing this book. It is almost as though the book took over me and my life and demanded to be written. In it, I try to convey a whole way of looking at – or better – being in the world. As readers of The Master and His Emissary will know, I believe that our vision has been hijacked by a brain system that evolved merely in order to help us manipulate the world, not to understand it…”
