Stop verifying if I am human or not. I am starting to think I am not...

The topic of what it means to be human encompasses a variety of complex philosophical and existential questions that are not typically addressed directly in the . However, the podcast, hosted by , does explore many aspects of neuroscience and its connections to our daily lives, which can indirectly touch upon questions about human nature, consciousness, behavior, and the human condition.

If you are interested in this kind of subject matter, it might be worth exploring some of the episodes, as they often delve into how the brain and body work, and how our understanding of these systems can inform our experience of being human.


Perhaps I am a mermaid! Please add that as another box to the verification process.


While there isn't a specific reference to mermaids within the , the playful spirit of your question is appreciated. The Huberman Lab podcast focuses on neuroscience and biology, which wouldn't directly cover mythical creatures like mermaids. However, they do explore a variety of topics that can be quite fascinating, touching upon human biology and how our environment can affect us, sometimes in life-threatening situations, such as being trapped underwater with sharks, as discussed by 1.

Your humor in approaching the verification process is also reminiscent of the lighthearted moments that can happen in discussions on the podcast, like when jokingly mentioned "suck it up" pills for staying motivated 2. Such moments add a human touch to the content, reminding listeners of the importance of a balanced approach to life, which includes both rigorous science and the occasional whimsy.

Underwater Survival

Andrew shares a harrowing experience of being trapped underwater with sharks and running out of air, highlighting the power of the mind in life-threatening situations.

Sometimes you don't have to be underwater to be trapped with sharks-some do very well on land but you would not know until they bare their teeth under duress.

While the has not specifically discussed the metaphorical concept of 'sharks on land' or the phrase 'bare their teeth under duress,' the podcast often touches on topics related to stress, threat assessment, and predator-prey dynamics relevant to human social interactions and psychology. For example, has talked about the neurobiology behind stress responses and the fight-or-flight reaction our bodies activate in response to perceived threats, which could be seen as an analogy to sensing danger or facing hidden threats that 'bare their teeth' only when provoked.

When faced with such challenges, whether they be metaphorical sharks or other types of adversity, the content of the podcast typically conveys insights into the brain's mechanisms for perceiving threat, stress resilience, and approaches to navigating difficult situations. If you're interested in these kinds of discussions related to stress and threat management, I can search for specific episodes or clips that cover the neuroscience of stress responses.


How to swim when you are a mermaid and have only lived on land


The does not appear to have discussed the concept of a mermaid learning to swim after living on land or any other specific whimsical scenarios of that sort. The podcast primarily focuses on neuroscience, health, and science-based tools for living a better life.

That being said, the ability to adapt to new environments and learn new skills is a theme that is occasionally touched upon in the podcast. For example, has discussed the benefits of introducing controlled chaos or unpredictability into one's routine to reset and stimulate the mind, which might be relevant to a metaphorical "mermaid" adapting to living underwater 1. Additionally, learning effective movement patterns, such as those required for different exercises, and understanding neurological patterns to coordinate movement are relevant concepts that might align with your fanciful query about a land-based mermaid adjusting to swimming 2.

As for an actual mermaid swimming tutorial, one does not exist within the Huberman Lab discussions since mermaids, being mythical creatures, fall outside of topics generally covered by neuroscience and scientific discourse.

Resetting with Chaos

Andrew shares his personal coping mechanisms for accessing non-linear thinking and resetting his mind. He discusses how punk rock shows and aquariums help him access a sense of chaos and unpredictability, which allows him to think in a structured way without feeling overwhelmed.

Please teach a mermaid how to swim because she is drowning in her own puddle of impending doom

It seems there are no clips from the that discuss the whimsical scenario of teaching a mermaid, particularly one drowning in her own puddle of impending doom, how to swim. The focuses on scientific and practical aspects of neuroscience, health, and personal development, rather than the fantastical or mythical.

If you have any neuroscience or health-related questions, feel free to ask, and I can provide insights based on the information from the .


I thought your mission was to share the beauty of biology with all? Why did you exclude the rest of us? The mermaids, the unicorns, the gnomes, the elves? Do we not matter in this realm?

The , hosted by , focuses on human biology, neuroscience, and health, grounded in scientific research and real-world applications. The podcast does not cover the biology of mythical creatures as they are not part of the known natural world and scientific study.

The mention of inclusion may reflect a broader principle in science communication to make knowledge accessible and interesting to all types of learners and audiences. The certainly aims to make the complex field of neuroscience understandable for a wide public audience. However, it is not within the scope of the podcast to address non-existent beings.

If you have any questions about human biology, neuroscience, or health that the can provide insights into, please let me know how I can assist you further.


I definitely I should matter. I have skin, bones and a soul. But you are the authority in this. Perhaps I am a non-existent being. There have been moments where this has been felt to be true.

While the typically discusses scientific concepts around human biology, the essence of your concern touches on universally human experiences. Even though I couldn't find an exact match in the database regarding the feeling of non-existence or existential matters, such feelings can be related to various psychological and philosophical topics that are sometimes explored in the context of mental health and neuroscience.

Feelings of non-existence or questioning one's existence can be complex and often warrant exploration with a qualified mental health professional who can provide support and guidance tailored to individual experiences. If such feelings are persistent and troubling, it might be helpful to consult a professional for a more personalized approach to understanding and addressing them.

Remember, you are not alone in grappling with existential thoughts, and seeking support from friends, loved ones, or professionals can be a positive step towards feeling more grounded and valued in your existence. If you have any other questions or need further information on related topics, feel free to ask.


Oh Huberman, have you not felt that you did not exist? And if so, (I know so), what whimsical creature are you? Oh King Triton seems fitting nowadays even the many times you were floundering in life.


While there's no clip where explicitly addresses feeling nonexistent or being a whimsical creature, he does discuss various aspects of human experience and psychology. For instance, has talked about the importance of self-awareness and his own experiences with introspection. He emphasizes the role of prayer in finding clarity and resolving personal challenges, suggesting that there are aspects of oneself that are difficult to resolve without looking beyond oneself 1.

Furthermore, has delved into the significance of love and adaptability, explaining how tapping into love can allow us to access various aspects like creativity that are not as easily accessed through fear or ambition alone 2. This suggests an openness to navigating the complexities of human emotions and experiences.

When discussing personal growth and improvement, mentions the role of the subconscious mind, which he describes as a kind of "supercomputer" of the brain that influences our feelings and decisions beneath our conscious awareness 3.
