The Mind, Explained - Netflix Miniseries

Here’s an episode of a new miniseries on Netflix called The Mind, Explained. I haven’t watched it yet, but it looks like Yanjaa is in it along with some memory competition footage.

Here’s a link: The Mind, Explained.

THE MIND, EXPLAINED takes a five-episode deep dive into how our brains handle memory, anxiety, psychedelics and dreams. Narrated by Emma Stone.

After nearly a year of labor behind the scenes, we have an announcement for you: Explained is finally back! And during this year, we’ve turned our attention to a crucial question: Why can’t we remember what is in the fridge? Or more importantly, why can’t we remember most of the details of our own lives? Why do an estimated 1 in 3 people suffer from an anxiety disorder at some point? And why, when we go to bed at night, are we overcome with strange visions? Do our dreams actually mean anything, or serve any purpose? Our minds often feel like a black box. And the stakes of these questions go far beyond the fridge – to our fundamental sense of reality, and what it means to be human. How can we help ourselves, and each other, when our minds betray us? What can we do to take back some control? Scientists have figured out so much more than you might realize – and today, we’re diving deep, with 5 brand new episodes narrated by Emma Stone taking you on an adventure through the mind, available today.

That was fantastic to watch!
So much value in this video!
It’s amazing how they structured the whole message with the animations explaining how it works with Yanjaa memorising 500 digits and what she sees within the story.
I am a big fan of Yanjaa, she is one of my heros. Amazing person!

I really loved watching this and 20 minutes seemed like 2 minutes.
I will be watching this again, maybe a few more times!
Thank you for this link.
