Her theory? By assuming certain poses, we can actually become who we want to be.
Zombie Roaches and Other Parasite Tales
This talk is given by scientific journalist Ed Yong, who explores the world of parasites and bacteria, and how they drive host organisms to do their bidding, even at times to their own self-destruction.

The talk leaves the viewer compelled to ask serious “What-if’s” about the possibility of the free will of human beings themselves.
Love, No Matter What

Through literature, pop-culture, science-based references, this time so resonated with so many people, he was able to create a museum online: The Museum of Four in the Morning. Intensely peculiar and deeply satisfying, this talk is an eye-opener and not to be missed.
