Our human interface with reality

Bottleneck reveals the disturbing and exciting implications of taking the true nature of the human interface with reality into account.

There is a paradox: The world we inhabit and experience through our senses, appears incredibly detailed and rich in information. However, there is no scientific evidence that we are able to absorb more than a tiny trickle of fresh information, leading to the conclusion that most of the world we are experiencing is just an internal construct or simulation based on our history. This process represents a “Bottleneck”, a narrow constraint on the rate at which we can learn something new, and has shocking implications for the future which we are yet to appreciate.
