⚡️ A World Without Lies: What If We Had An Accurate Lie Detection Device?

Mere Mortals

Another hypothetical and this time we'll be looking into a world without lies.

In Episode #278 of 'Musings' Juan and I discuss: the device on our apps that could detect lies via your voice, why the world might not embrace this technology, situations in which lying is beneficial, answers to the 'do I look fat in this dress' dilemma, why people might start using email more because of it and why we would need to understand consciousness before such a device could work properly.

This episode was supported by Petar the Slav and Dave Jones, much appreciation to both!

As always, we hope you enjoy. Mere Mortals out!
