so I'm passionate about technology because I believe technology is an extension of human creativity today our host Jason Silva is giving a free talk at a local university here's the amazing thing about technology but pay attention because while these people think they're here to see Jason give a presentation on technology technology evolves exponentially they're actually the subject of a social experiment and you're about to see how far these people will go just to fit in with a crowd the smartphone that you guys have in your pocket is actually a million times
00:30
cheaper a million times smaller and a thousand times more powerful than what used to be sixty million dollars in half a building forty years ago so far the crowd seems to be following the speech so I want to switch gears for a minute and talk about something I think is really mind-blowing as well if you guys ever stop to think just about how a thought is an idea caught in the fangs of consciousness huh which is why you can put cats in hats without hats and cats the soup is on so to speak if it
01:03
now sounds like Jason is speaking nonsense geometry wisdom tangerines it all becomes possible he is so eat your soup so how would you react dreamers among us dream about and jury pnes think this crowd will bail e equals elephant not the lizard or will conformity keep them in their seats the nervous system marinating like the afterbirth let's just say the only thing more surprising than Jason's speech that makes sense he's seeing what these
01:34
people do next it's time to celebrate stick around in essence this is what true thought is all about it's the disconnect it doesn't come from the knowledge that your mind predates a time that knowledge of time for days tangerines we're conducting an experiment on conformity to see how this audience will react to someone who's clearly speaking complete gibberish which is why you can put cats in half but not hats on cats so to speak if you
02:04
know what I mean are you following any of this that is elephant in the room not to loser to the L it's reefer madness geometry wisdom tangerines it all becomes possible okay this is getting weird how would you react if you were in the audience silence would you get up and leave that is all the time I have for today thank you for listening you guys [Applause] polite applause is one thing but these
02:42
people are giving Jason a standing ovation for spewing complete nonsense so what's going on here okay I'm going to let you in on a little secret this my friends was an experiment in conformity to see if you'd give me a standing ovation even though the second half of my talk was complete gibberish and so you guys actually proved the point have you ever stood for an applause
03:12
simply because everyone else is you know he's talking about cats and hats and stuff like that now it's just like did what he really say Barrett is standing ovations and he's right but if Jason's speech didn't deserve such an ovation what made this audience stand up to applaud it all started with two very enthusiastic audience members that we planted in the crowd for some added peer pressure so I said start seeing people standing up so okay I'll stand up there was a couple people that stood and were like really really enthused about standing
03:44
and everybody else started standing so I figured it was definitely my fault a standing ovation doesn't happen because everyone in the audience had the idea to stand up and applaud at the same time it happens because a few people decided to stand and everyone else just went along with it so it's not to be judged as uncaring or different I felt like everybody who is going to be like you didn't get it was so great one incredibly fascinating aspect of mob mentality is how it only takes a few leaders to get the whole mob to follow well almost the whole mob nanus the
04:14
other way oh no have fun doing you I'm gonna do me I've always wanted to be in my own drum that's how you survive as you just witnessed your brain tends to go along to get along with
