Dr. Angus Fletcher — How “Story Thinking” is the operating system of the brain.

Dr. Angus Fletcher

Listen to the UNcivilized Podcast:

The brain and a computer are light years apart from being the same. It is true that both store data, process information, and perform tasks. However, although technology tries to simulate the human intelligence processes, the human brain has proven to be better adapted than any computer could.
To dive into this topic, today we will be joined by the Story Science Professor, Angus Fletcher. Angus is a man curious about the human brain and how it works. His research led him to discover how history can help us to be tougher, capable, and to have courage.
During this episode, we talked about chaos, growth, attitude change, and initiative-taking. In addition, we will also be talking about the brain as a machine and why it is superior to computers, a topic worth listening to.
