Applying Complex Systems Science To Brain Health: A New Model For Understanding Dementia​

Daniel Schmachtenberger


Heather Sandison, N.D. 

Welcome to the Reverse Alzheimer’s Summit. I’m your host, Dr. Heather Sandison. And I’m so excited to introduce you to Daniel Schmachtenberger, a dear friend of mine, a mentor, and one of the people who has most influenced my career and this path that took me to reversing Alzheimer’s with my patients and the residents at Borama. 

Daniel is a founding member of The Consilience Project, aimed at improving public sense-making and dialogue. The through line of his many interests has to do with ways of improving the health and development of individuals and society with a virtuous relationship between the two as a goal. Towards these ends, he’s had particular interest in the topics of catastrophic and existential risk, civilization and institutional decay and collapse, as well as progress, collective action problems, social organization theories, and the relevant domains in philosophy and science. 

Motivated by the belief that advancing collective intelligence and capacity is foundational to the integrity of any civilization and necessary to address the unique risks we currently face given the intersection of globalization and exponential technology, he has spoken publicly on many of these topics, hoping to popularize and deepen important conversations and engage more people in working towards their solutions. Many of these can be found in The Consilience Project. Daniel, thank you so much for joining us.
