"Space Time Mind" is a podcast hosted by philosophy professor Pete Mandik and often features discussions with co-host Richard Brown as well as a variety of guest experts. The content revolves around intricate topics at the intersection of philosophy, neuroscience, artificial intelligence, and consciousness. This podcast delves into profound questions about the nature of the mind, the philosophical underpinnings of physics, and cognitive science.

Throughout the episodes, listeners can expect to find deep explorations into themes such as the neuroscience of consciousness, the philosophical basis of pain, memory, and emotional experiences. The show also frequently addresses the implications of advanced technologies, especially in the realm of Artificial Intelligence, examining both the ethical and practical consequences of AI development and language models like LaMDA and GPT-3.

Another recurring area of focus includes metaphysical questions related to time, reality, and the future of humanity. Discussions often probe into theoretical scenarios involving technological immortality, the philosophy of time (eternalism vs. presentism), and the potential for humans to evolve or be transformed by technology. The interplay between existential risks and future philosophical perspectives is examined in the context of transhumanism and the singularity.

Episodes often feature thought-provoking debates on the philosophical implications of scientific developments, including the nature of conscious states, the concept of higher-order thoughts, and the boundaries of human knowledge. The podcast also touches upon artistic and cultural aspects, including the future of human creativity in light of non-human generative art.

Guest appearances from philosophers, neuroscientists, and AI researchers bring additional depth to the discussions, offering varied perspectives on issues such as illusionism, cognitive behavioral therapy, and Buddhist philosophy. Overall, "Space Time Mind" serves as a comprehensive forum for intellectual engagement with topics that lie at the heart of contemporary philosophical and scientific inquiry.
