This video is fascinating, and it is very thought provoking. I agree with Leo when at the end when he talks about making more accessible, I have been pursuing enlightenment for the past 9 years and I recently for unrelated reasons I have run into some monetary issues because I am 19 and I need to start making money, and Leos older more stage orange oriented videos from more around actualized.orgs start have been very helpful for me in my pursuit for financial freedom.

ok, just tripped across this site mostly by chance, found this video on a topic that is of high interest for me, and now 16.25 mins in and you’re going off the deep end…

so boring, repetitive, nonsense, that is what i am hearing, threatening no, that would imply that i accept that you are for real with so far evidence that is so far lacking…

so more a projection of assumptions with dark feeling tones within mixing in some good stuff which i hoped would get better and lead to something…

but still, i wonder where you are going with this, gender was a defined term for ages as a physical gender, so what is wrong with a defined term for our born as physical gender, why did this word become highjacked and redefine from a physical given to becoming a social construct…

if we need a new word we need to coin a new word, why highjack an existing one, like if we need a term for someone that is a healthy for them outlier to our typical Eros/Logos inner balance, something other than being anima possessed on animus possessed, then whatever but why destroy an existing word with an existing meaning…

so at least from a Jungian perspective, we all have a masculine psychological aspect call Logos and a feminine psychological perspective called Eros and who we are is the inner relationship between, such that demonizing either of these inner aspects is damaging to the psyche…

but that’s what we do and we wonder why some hate their gender suit…

so as a bisexual i like the notion of being free to be who i am, thank you for your support, i just don’t agree when it comes to demonizing our gender suits, this has a bad potential downside from what i can perceive…

“abc”, nor as an “xyz”. But Leo says you will feel complete as a “god”? Sounds weird.
My point is, is ‘feeling’ a reputable connoisseur of truth? Is feeling-about a trustworthy middle (wo)man? Or even an ad-hoc social construct?
Beyond completeness, there can’t be anything ELSE. No feeling-about to test it. No thinking-about, no judgment, no experience, no external machinery proclaiming “I know”.
Here’s the catch: could “I am infinity” actually mean “I know I am infinity”, meaning “I am dreaming-of infinity”? Don’t forget to check.
What is free, free from needs, free from being limited to a loop called “I know that I know”? Whether looping once or infinitely many times, forward (ego) or backward (enlightened), “I know” is a self-fulfilling prophecy. Wonderfully alive, but closed-minded, a navel-staring trap.
Consciousness is a construction. A strange loop, which evolved because it works; not because it’s ultimately true. If seen how YOU made it iterate, can it be deconstructed?
Consciousness is a game of either-or, identification with a rule of exclusion. Consciousness = belief in “is OR isn’t”.
(B.t.w. quantum mechanics exposed the fallacy of either-or, but scientists generally fear living more inclusive lives.)
Transcendence = to be AND not to be, at the same time AND timelessly. Absolute infinity is all encompassing (including dreams of exclusion, hihi).
Why choose to be knowledgeable OR naive? The insanely curious can know AND not know, bound by time AND free from time. I(dentification) can be undone in the blink of an I.

First sentence missing:

“You are never gonna feel complete” as an…
