  1. @Kalo could you paraphrase? Seems interesting but I can't quite grasp what you're saying
  2. pretty interesting, thanks!
  3. @mandyjw ??
  4. looks good
  5. @Leo Gura I think the op is appropriate for most people here. Most of the fear related to the desire for sex goes away when you start to engage in the processes and activities that will lead to sex. desire feels bad especially when pain/fear is sourcing it: when you know you'll get sex and are free from the fear and uncertainty, the desire for sex takes on a different form. So it's more about the fear involved related to not having sex and having the expectations that one might not get it in the future, rather than the desire itself. Sure it moves you to satisfy your survival needs, but it can also make you feel alive when it is free from fear. Knowing you're are capable of embodying the principles that move you in the right direction is not just matter of procrastination, but it's closely related to flow states and cognitive fluency, as well, which in themselves are pleasurable and enriching. Deeply satisfying desire is the best solution as you say, but what's even better is knowing you have the skills to satisfy them if you want, and get that thing back if you lose it. At least, I feel that brings so much more confidence and calm to my life, and allows me to enjoy satisfying my desires without visualizing some negative scenario of me losing something. Why do that when you know you can get it back? I'll take advantage of the situation to say that I especially enjoyed your last video on the blog, it was packed with a lot of valuable information. During the video I found myself thinking "oh, I've never thought about it in this way" or many many times, and I suppose that's precisely because the video was unscripted. In your random talk is implicity present the particular perspective you have on different aspects of life. And that way it's simply easier to get a communication or internalize anothers' perspective, because you have very little time to think and so you're forced to compress what you think about something, and that works very well if you have a lot to say. Being on the receiving end of the communication I was able to make lots of distinctions in your perspective and immediately reflect on mine, by seeing how you compress your raw thoughts - like I could immediately pick up on your implicit pattern processing. And that made a huge difference. It would be good to have extended periods of time where you only post unscripted videos (maybe on youtube?) and I believe a lot of people would benefit from your raw personal reflections. I sure did. All the better if it's to work on the book. Thanks for your work.
  6. I coincidentally found this channel just a few days ago as I was going through my YouTube homepage. It's interesting and inspiring, and it seems to be making these matters more "rigorous", which I'm sure would help make consciousness work more mainstream or acceptable among intellectual circles in some direct or indirect way. So their contribution is not bad at all Sure there are some corrections to be made. But the best is the enemy of the good, as long as one remains flexible and open to further corrections
  7. Looks very interesting, was having similar ideas recently. Glad someone got to the same conclusions and hopefully put it in much better words. Thanks for sharing!
  8. @amenX was your friend on a low sugar diet?
  9. Not just exploring more content, but becoming more conscious, on a structural level, of what consciousness itself is, regardless of the form that consciousness is. Am I getting this right? It's kind of hard to find this distinctions being made elsewhere
  10. @Leo Gura that seems to suggest why Jung became increasingly creative when he started to get schizophrenic
  11. @Fran11 it's like the distinction between difference/being and meaning; meaning is second order but as if added on top, or a result of the "organization" of differences, so to speak. Interestingmetaphor, thanks
  12. That's exactly how some researchers in cutting edge cognitive science are starting to frame the cultivation of wisdom, one example is John Vervaeke and his work, which deserves more attention in my opinion
  13. Never tried this while tripping, maybe you guys can give it a try
