A 1.5hr random, nonlinear tawk with Stephen Wolfram dated Feb 19th 2022 on topics ranging from the hyper Ruliad, computational irreducibility, universality, the Principle of Computational Equivalence, undecidability, metamathematics, scientism, multicomputation, to why IQ fails.

I really wanted to ask a lot more questions, but we ran out of time. Hopefully next time!
