Facilitated by Doug Taylor
Our TUUC Freethinking Mystics will meet for the last time on this second palindromic Wednesday, December 8 at 6:00 p.m. on Zoom to complete our exploration, discussion, and dialogue about biases using the “Learning How to See, Season 2” podcasts from CAC.org.
On this episode of Learning How to See, Brian, Gigi, Mike and Paul talk about the next two biases that look at the social-political dimensions of seeing:
- Catastrophe Bias: Our brains notice sudden changes for the worse, but we easily miss slow and subtle changes over time. We think what is now normal always was and always will be. Our brains are wired for what feels normal.
- Cash Bias: It is very hard to see anything that interferes with our way of making a living. Our brains are wired to see within the framework of our economy, and we see what helps us make money. https://cac.org/podcasts/hate-and-love/
As always, please feel free to share, invite and bring kindred spirits! And please remember that it is not required to read/listen to the materials or answer any questions about the topic beforehand. The power is in Your presence, just as you are, which contributes to the energy and richness of the group!
