michael-grazianoDr. Michael Graziano is a professor of psychology and neuroscience at Princeton university, and the author of several books on consciousness and countless peer reviewed articles. He is also a composer, a novelist and a ventriloquist.

Few neuroscientists have so boldly dived into the topic of spirituality. He is the author of God Soul Mind Brain: A Neuroscientist’s Reflections on the Spirit World.

In his latest book, Consciousness & the Social Brain Graziano presents an audacious theory on consciousness. This theory has attracted a fair amount of controversy, and in this podcast Michael lays it out simply, and explains how using a puppet monkey named Kevin, and the ability to ventriloquise, helps him understand and explain this theory. Watch him do this here. 

I really enjoyed this free-flowing conversation that spans flow states, creativity, non-optimal mind states, bystander effect, and of course puppetry. Stick around until the end, as Michael provides a very interesting strategy for tapping into peak creative states.
