Ted Talk by Donald Hoffman « Do we see reality as it is? »
But here’s the point: Once we let go of our massively intuitive but massively false assumption about the nature of reality, it opens up new ways to think about life’s greatest mystery. I bet that reality will end up turning out to be more fascinating and unexpected than we’ve ever imagined.

Donald is showing how science finally comes pretty close to the « Determination of the 6 patriarchs » (Geshe Michael Roach Interview).
