The most interesting concept brought up in the interview was the idea that humans do know their imminent future; however, they are willing to ignore it since the idea of the future is either too scary for people to understand or they believe the future will not affect them, against best judgment. The example that was given was a divination tent in which people were pushed to think about the future and guided into thinking about climate change. It was found that people did acknowledge that climate change will affect the future; however, their biases led them to believe that it wouldn't affect them, so they choose to ignore it. This phenomenon is fascinating to me because it shows how self-centered humans are.
I would ask Gilbert about the psychology of self-fulfilling prophecies. Often, I am given fortunes that told me to avoid going out too often, or else something terrible would happen to me. Whilst on my journey to avoid this terrible prediction, how often is it that I end up fulfilling this prophecy as opposed to just going about in my normal life? In these predictions, is it considering the fact that I will continue my normal psychology or banking on the psychology that I would alter myself in order to avoid this?
