I’m pursuing a very odd effect I found in a case study. In certain cases, people suffering from schizophrenia see their symptoms abate after receiving a bone marrow transplant for blood cancer. Link to my current literature review and thinking about the subject here.
I also record the podcast Narratives, which focuses on narratives about progress (is the world better, or worse than it was in the past? What ways is it better? In what ways is it worse? How do we make real progress? I record the podcast, primarily for selfish reasons (so that I can get a chance to talk to the people I find interesting, but would have difficulty accessing otherwise), but also to try and remind smart people that they should work hard to make the world a better place, and to help them 10x their ambition.
