    1. If you and I are in conflict, it's as if we're at the opposite ends of the same line. And my aim is to prove that you're wrong and to shift you towards me. The problem is, you are doing exactly the same. You're trying to prove that I'm wrong and shift me towards you. Notice that conflict is the setup to win but not learn. Your brain only learns if we move. Life is movement. So, what if we could use awe, not to get rid of conflict -- 00:11:59 conflict is essential, conflict is how your brain expands, it's how your brain learns -- but rather, to enter conflict in a different way? And what if awe could enable us to enter it in at least two different ways? One, to give us the humility and courage to not know. Right? To enter conflict with a question instead of an answer. What would happen then? To enter the conflict with uncertainty instead of certainty. 00:12:27 And the second is, in entering conflict that way, to seek to understand, rather than convince. Because everyone makes sense to themselves, right? And to understand another person, is to understand the biases and assumptions that give rise to their behavior. And we've actually initiated a pilot study to look to see whether we could use art-induced awe to facilitate toleration. 00:12:55 And the results are actually incredibly positive. We can mitigate against anger and hate through the experience of awe generated by art.

      Awe can be the antidote to conflict. In conflict, we try to prove the other is wrong and convince the other to adopt my perspective of reality. Each polarized individual is applying the exact same strategy, resulting in deadlock. Awe can change that in two ways. Firstly, awe can acknowledge authentic humility in our own vast ignorance, and our own imperfect knowledge of reality and can advocate for a journey of co-discovery. Secondly, seek to put ourselves in the other shoes and see from their perspective, their lifeworld.
