Belief is not Binary


Here’s a very interesting video by Evan Jones about the non-binary state of belief. In this short talk, Jones explains how people interact and engage into a story in a new way by redefining the way they believe in it.

Here’s the official excerpt by TEDx Halifax:

In the spirit of ideas worth spreading, TEDx is a program of local, self-organized events that bring people together to share a TED-like experience. At a TEDx event, TEDTalks video and live speakers combine to spark deep discussion and connection in a small group. These local, self-organized events are branded TEDx, where x = independently organized TED event. The TED Conference provides general guidance for the TEDx program, but individual TEDx events are self-organized.* (*Subject to certain rules and regulations)
