YANSS 155 – What we can learn about why we dangerously disagree on the truth from The Dress, Yanny, and bloie, presented live in New York at The Bell House

For the 155th episode of the You Are Not So Smart Podcast, David McRaney, four experts, and a bunch of YANSS fans got together for a deep dive into how we turn perception into reality, how that reality can differ from brain to brain, and what happens when we dangerously disagree on the truth.

The Dress

At The Bell House in Brooklyn, David was joined on stage by NYU psychologists Moira Dillon, Jay Van Bavel, and Pascal Wallisch.

Moira DillonMoira Dillon studies how “the physical world in which we live shapes the abstract world in which we think,” at the Lab for the Developing Mind at NYU.  She and her colleagues study how humans make sense of their surroundings through spatial perception and how they attempt to communicate those surroundings through art, geometry, and mathematics.

Jay Van BavelFrom “neurons to social networks,” Jay Van Bavel studies how collective concerns like morals, group identity, and political beliefs affect human brains. His team at the Social Evaluation and Perception Lab studies these issues using social neuroscience, and approach that uses neuroimaging, lesion patients, and linguistic analysis of social media to examine how humans in groups affect the beliefs and perceptions of other humans in groups.

Pascal Wallisch“How do people construct the subjective reality they inhabit?” That’s the question at the center of the work of Pascal Wallisch, who studies how human beings differ in the their interpretations of the objective truth. As part of that work, he has been the go-to scientist when it comes to making sense of The Dress, the Yanny/Laurel illusion, and several other viral phenomena on the internet. He even produced a study explaining exactly why some people saw the dress as one color, and others saw it as another.

Brian ReillyBrian J. Reilly is the author of Getting the Blues: Vision and Cognition in the Middle Ages,  an interdisciplinary study of how people in the medieval era thought, wrote, spoke about and experienced color. In the show, he explains how people in previous eras and other cultures developed color terms when they needed. Even though they experienced the same world as us at the level of perceptions, at the level of categorization and communication, they experienced something else entirely.

The dress is bloie!

Vinnie Fiorello x Funko Monkey Assassin

If you've been collecting vinyl toys for awhile, you might remember the curious Monkey Assassin (2004) from Vinnie Fiorello, perhaps best known as the lead singer of Less Than Jake. What you might not remember, is that the cold-blooded ape was produced and released by Funko, long before Pop! took the world by storm. Recently Funko unexpectedly released a new version of Monkey Assassin, this time in Pop! form. Originally released as a Funko Exclusive, the new edition features the sword-wielding pose featured in later versions of the toy rather than the behind-the-back OG pose. It's available now directly from Fiorello's Paper + Plastik shop for $15.

Funny thing about this one.. I had NO idea what I was doing until almost the end.
I kind of hit one of those famous Blocks and couldn't come up with an idea.
I started drawing the guy sitting on the left, than the girl across from him, and kept
adding characters and this came out.
I actually like it quite a bit!
Funny how that works.

Lost in Translation

Lost in translation.
Something different.
trying to figure out how to translate varied emotions. Not always easy to find their
visual counterpart, especially when the emotions are all mixed.
