Everything is Connected -- Here's How: | Tom Chi | TEDxTaipei

Published 2016-01-11
Tom Chi認為「萬物都有相關聯」或「事出必有因」的說法,其實不只是純粹哲學的形上思考,而是有各種科學根據證明這個理論的。而找出這個現象象徵的意義是什麼,或許就能解開人類之所以存在的秘密....?

Tom Chi has worked in a wide range of roles from astrophysical researcher to Fortune 500 consultant to corporate executive developing new hardware/software products and services. He has played a significant role in established projects with global reach (Microsoft Outlook, Yahoo Search), and scaled new projects from conception to significance (Yahoo Answers from 0 to 90 million users).

His current focus is delving into human development issues with social entrepreneurs around the globe, rebooting the fundamental frameworks of entrepreneurship itself, and teaching a limited numb

當試圖定義這個時代創業意義的Voltaic Labs,碰上以創新和新穎計畫聞名的Google X,他們的共通點,就是Tom Chi。

他是天文學家、是網路與軟體工程師、是科學家、創新大師。他曾說:「我們不能忘記跨出書本,改變世界!」藉由Tom Chi的快速原型設計(rapid prototyping),他成功地在網路時代領導Yahoo從0到9千萬用戶,接著創造了Google Glass,近年更開啟Google自動駕駛車計畫。

    We are not a human experiencing the universe. We are the universe experiencing a human!
  • Funny how an astrophysical researcher and an 18 year old on shrooms came to the same conclusion.

    We in India say "Vasudhaiva Kutumbakam", a Sanskrit phrase which means "The World Is One Family" 👍

    Lol I’m 18 years old, most people my age watch love island but I spend my days reading up on revolutionary theories and powerful Ted x talks. I think as human it is our duty to utilise our phenomenal intelligence to find new knowledge, not consume the media.

    He has the capability to be a scientist and the sensibility to see through the material world. We actually need these sort of scientists, those able to make a link between the materialism or science and the spiritual meaning of what they observe through their job. They give the meaning, they see the “why” behind the observable matter.

    I love this. For someone going through an existential crisis, its comforting to be reminded that my person is contributing the universe on a grand scale by doing such simple things as breathing, by simply existing and giving away my energy to be used for a greater purpose.

    "It turns out that the world of people is a lot harder to understand than the entire universe" Amen to that, brother.

    "The meaning of our lives is not even within the scope of our understanding."

    “The world of people is way harder to understand than the entire universe” kinda felt that on the soul

    Tom Chi's perspective on "everything in the universe being interconnected" not only allows us to better understand the universe surrounding us, but also transforms our relationships with each other and with the world. Through the stories of the heart, the breath, and the mind, he provides us with a new perspective on how we can shape our lives and society. Moreover, I was mesmerized by Chi's stories explaining how iron from supernovas ends up in our blood, how cyanobacteria transformed Earth's atmosphere, and how human creativity expands the "Palette of Being". These stories remind us of how our actions and decisions can influence not just us, but the entire universe. After watching this video, I feel more motivated to pay more attention to what is happening in the world and the direction of our lives. Indeed, understanding that everything is interconnected strengthens our ability to build our lives and societies in a more conscious and meaningful way. I encourage everyone who watches this video to discover how this perspective can make a difference in their own lives.

    “Maybe the meaning of our lives are actually not within the scope of our understanding…” I like how he puts it that way.
  • I love how he slows down at the end to choose his words wisely, he knows the value of the information he is giving and wants to make sure he it giving it justice
  • Ancient Hindus said: "Tat vam asi", meaning "You are That" Looks so profound after listening to your speech! Thank you so much!!

  • I need new friends sooooo bad. This is the type of person i need to b around
  • As a person who is low in iron.. 16+ blood infusion… 30+ iron infusions.. it all makes sense.. I have been obsessing over energy and how we feed off everyone’s energy. This makes so much sense. Thank you for this!!!!!!!! We are connected. All my best to anyone who reads this comment .. you were brought to this page for a reason…. WE ARE ALL CONNECTED

    17:26 - "we need to challenge ourselves to understand what it means to live from this truth." - very powerful. you animate the principles by which you orient your perspective.
