During their recent episode, Taylor, Carlisle, and Morgan discussed Exploring Finding Your Tribe Online: Navigating Digital Connection in a Disconnected World, here’s an excerpt from the episode:

Tom: Yes, exactly right. I think that all of this stuff is solved. It’s like a solved problem in many ways we just don’t do it. Like, “Yeah, put the phone down.” But I think you’ve got to work with what you’ve got, which is that like, “Why are we talking right now,” Jake and I talked because we met in real life and then we met digitally. My wife doesn’t give two hoots about anything I talk about. That was very alienating for a long time during COVID when it was just the two of us in a room. And then I started being mega turbo weird online. [Tobias laughs] I’ve now got like good in real life friends that would just want to spend hours talking about the batshit stuff that I talk about right now.

And so, I found my tribe online using technology, which I think is a very important caveat. I pursue information that gives me energy, not just like in real life community that’s so obvious everyone does it or doesn’t do it. You know what that is, right? Information brings you connection and excitement.

Then I think it’s this general conception of, if you can bring more right hemispheric practices into your life, you will feel more embedded and at home in the world. That just brings you a sense of intrinsic well-being that, like, I think that if you have to pick one word– Literally, if you go through every single thing that’s problematic in our world right now and you just apply the word disconnection to it, you win. Environmental disconnection, we’re killing it. Like, personal disconnection, we’re killing it. Political disconnection and polarization, we’re killing it. Institutional disconnection.

Every single problem we have is disconnection. The fundamental nature of the left hemisphere is disconnected. Is it causal? I don’t know. Is it a symptom? I don’t know. But that’s the problem. And so, to the extent that you can resolve connection in every single one of these, you can resolve that problem.
