  • Adam talks with British professor of Cognitive and Computational Neuroscience at the University of Sussex, Anil Seth about the difficulty of defining consciousness, the difference between the idea of a self and a soul, what happens when things go wrong with your perception of self and those around you, the way that psychedelics alter consciousness for better or worse, and whether Anil's work has changed the way he thinks about the big D. Not Sunny D. The other one.

And there's a clash of the BBC documentarians as Kayvan unleashes the full force of his uncanny Louis Theroux impression and Adam does his best to respond with Adam Curtis.
