Great book. Quick to read and inspired a lot of interesting thoughts inside myself.
The writers of this book are some of the most creative and intelligent people on the planet, and hearing their speculative ideas was inspiring and insightful both into understanding how the world works and how people think.
Most of the ideas were things familiar, yet with reasoning very unique and fascinating. Plus the handful of unprovable beliefs that were entirely new to me. Things I had never thought of or heard mentioned before were thrilling to read. It is rare to come across ideas one hasn't heard before, yet this book was full of them. Most of them will likely be false, but even those open up new ways of thinking that will lead to other unique and true ideas.
