What is a fallacy, and is nationalism one of them? With a lot of help from Yuval Noah Harari, MoFo addresses this issue. MoFo’s uncle Linus R.

What is “digiphrenia”? The metaphors we use to describe time, do more than distort a genuine understanding of time itself. They also shape the lives we live. Because we are living through the advent of the digital age, our awareness of these transformations in our relationship to time requires us to take a step back. MoFo reads from “Digiphrenia,” a section of Douglas Rushkoff’s book, Present Shock. Mofo also reads from his book, Unheard Tick of Time.
