Summarized by The Spiritual Monk on Twitter.
What if I fail?
Art vs Philosophy
Where the F is Shwetabh?
Knowledge: Facts vs Processes
Prakahar's Infinite Experiments
The Relevance of Gaming in the Future
1/Vedant: Organisation is King
Organize and do micro-changes over time
Create uniqueness in your style
Like how our mothers perform micro-changes on domestic help maids
Vedant gave a TEDx Speech in Lockdown
2/ Vedant's TEDx Experience
Spoke about experimentation & the Importance of the choices you make:
1. Leaving Meerut & going to New Delhi
2. Graduation to Startup journey
3. Leaving startup and go abroad to study more (HARD PIVOTS)
Result: Take Risks. You'll Succeed or Learn
3/ Prakhar on Experimentation
By Experimenting, he can transfer skills from one niche to another
The mindset of experimentation is that victory and loss are JUST words
It's all about learning
Be okay with Never giving up
Focus on the Process rather than the Goal
4/ What if I fail?
He can't answer the question "What if I fail"? when others ask him due to their lack of perspective on his experimentation formula.
Conventional wisdom is Societal "Right Talk"
He is irritated with short term thinking!
Experimentation needs Time.
5/ Vedant Counters
Try to explain the power of Compounding by giving a monetary eg. like Mutual Funds
Efforts+Consistency=Exponentially Compounded Results
Consistency in the right direction is key
My Take: Humans can't grasp the concept of Compounding if it's not measurable
6/ Prakhar on Epistemology
1st school of thought: Knowledge is facts.
2nd school of thought: Knowledge are processes and he feels the latter is better
Forget the outcome, pay attention to processes, character, and habits
1st order right talk is overrated
7/ Prakhar Suggests Films rather than books
Consuming books to be just "Bookish Smart" is not sustainable
Read books cause you love it & Hungry for Knowledge
The best way to remember books is to read those that answer your question Eg. Microbiome, Fitness, Neuroscience, etc.
8/ Generalists vs Specialists
Vedant: If you're Master of one thing & If it disappears then what? Eg. Tiktokers sucking at making Reels
Prakhar: Read books of all domains & transfer principles across disciplines
Final Verdict: Films or Books?
9/ We don't understand the subconscious & unconscious processes
Emotions are the way of communication of the body with yourself
Don't rule out emotions
Films work because emotions, character add different Dimensions
Movies, Art & Stories capture reality better than Philosophy
10/ Language is the map if life is the territory-
To decode Reality & Entropy we use language and finer points are lost in this translation
The beauty lies in these fines point & movies expose these finer points better than writing!
Is Gaming Art?
11/ Relevance of Gaming in Modern World (Will hurt "Alpha Males")
We can incorporate our weirdest & wildest imaginations into gaming.
Instead of writing a book, games will be created to give the audience a VR experience
Prakhar seems very Optimistic about Gaming?
12/ Prakhar wants to create a VR experience of Cheerharan in Mahabharath
(Please watch this part for more clarity)
The beauty will be lost in translation
Prakhar tells his Israel Story
13/ Evolution is a Simp to Women!
Women dictate what's cool for Men.
Vedant's Youtube Recommendation: Girlfriend Reviews
Women don't understand the power they have over men Evolution is a SIMP!
Video games are an advanced version of daydreaming!
14/ Things to Contemplate
-What Actions do you do because of society?
-If you watch Big boss, are you Intelligent?
-People live vicariously through "Influencer's Life"
-For what will you not trade in your Business Ethics?
Conclusion & Recommendations
