  1. Ubi would make people less selfish and would probably reduce crime and increase creativity that alone is enough for my vote.
  2. It’s very repetitive but it’s also somewhat soothing to me. I’ve listened to Jim Newman Tony Parsons to go to sleep before hahahaha. jim and Tony and the Neo Advaitans may not have realized god but it seems they have realized no self, I suppose that’s a start. That is a sort of awakening in itself, hopefully when I realize no self through experience I do not trivialize life like they do, I don’t think it’s a worthless perspective but it’s awful tough living in a dream just constantly telling the other dream people that they don’t exist aha I feel like that is already implied but it’s a paradox and a mystery I guess
  3. @How to be wise I can understand a knee to the neck for a minute even but 9 minutes is crazy. nobody is that dangerous, at the very best it was negligence and at the very worst it was murder
  4. Siddhis are real and they have been shown to countless people but then those people die or are not believed and thus the cycle of skepticism continues. Siddhis ultimately aren’t worth attaining and are just byproducts from consistent sadhana. I myself have experience telepathy and other things I can’t really explain from just doing his chants and isha kriya not even the full 48 day mandala or 90 day mandala. This stuff has worked for 1000s of years but the problem is the amount of people actually doing sadhana and showing it off it so minuscule that it will probably never be accepted in the mainstream until everyone is doing it. Sadhguru doesn’t say he’s the only way but they say when the student is ready the guru appears and I believe a guru is extremely important for realization. It doesn’t have to be him but it’s still important at least in the traditional since. It’s like a Sherpa up a mountain or a map to the territory. It’s very useful
  5. It’s kinda scary that people like this vote. Trunk certainly normalized a lot of conspiracy theory stuff, a lot of people genuinely believe he won, and think there is widespread evidence to back it up. @leo gura what epistemic knowledge could we learn from this? projection and scapegoating?
  6. Waking life is a masterpiece. It’s like lucid dreaming and psychedelics put together, anyone who does psychs should watch this.
  7. @Arcangelo collective responsibility exists, and I disagree, social media companies do care about certain forms of speech more and more every day. Facebook is the worst offender cause they allowed Holocaust deniers forever but recently just changed course. leo make a good point that you must balance personal responsibility with collective responsibility, there is too much shirking of collective responsibility in just giving trump a pass for that riot and coup attempt which he told his supporters to March to the capitol and cheer for people they agree with and “not cheer” for the people they disagreed with. It’s getting out of hand and if you’re afraid that people can’t be vicious and ugly just look on Twitter there is plenty of vitriol. Trump only gets so many chances just like Alex Jones. Ultimately there is no fear in me because my barometer of freedom isn’t how much I can post on a private companies website or app. It’s how healthy and conscious the people in society are.
  8. A good chunk of people believe Antifa did this. That’s how sorry we are as a country.
  9. As a whole BLM supporters are nerdy liberal women and men, very young of all races usually college students, they aren’t rioters and they aren’t antifa, antifa is of a lower level of consciousness than BLM if you ask me as whole but OF COURSE there will be individuals that are lower and higher than the collective consciousness of the group, these are the ones usually evidenced in right wing propaganda. from what I’ve seen as antifa they will be violent but they will usually be in a position of property destruction or defense of a group of people from Neo nazi groups. Violence and property destruction dont automatically = bad back in the revolutionary war the rebels tarred and feathered people, raped women and destroyed king Georges tea and are celebrated as heroes, history will judge BLM nicely maybe even antifa nicely but since they are militant leftists I doubt it, like it’s been said they are a green backlash to blue and red and sometimes they can be toxic or sometime they can be healthy it depends on the individual but on the spiral I would put both at green with BLM slightly higher
  10. @Blackhawk joe Biden doesn’t want Bernie in his cabinet or Elizabeth warren, Kamala bent the knee pretty hard to be VP. maybe the dems will win I certainly want to see what they can do for two years until the midterms with complete control, they haven’t had complete control since the 90s I don’t think.
  11. Join a political organization or intern for a politician/ work in their office if you can’t do that then become politically active and work around elections and never give up on your beliefs, universities and cities are a good place to start and political outreach is always there. You could look into movement for a people’s party or the other non profits you mentioned
  12. Denounce all forms of terrorism, left terroists exist but yes right now the problem is these “militias” denounce rioting but don’t forget why they happened.
  13. Love energy can heal the environment too, yes follow the science but that is also an unmeasurable factor
  14. God is both creator and creation, but yes I don’t know if Biden knows that, and really unless you’ve actually experienced it it doesn’t matter what you say ?
  15. People aren’t rioting they are celebrating!
  16. @DocWatts yep! I think Biden isn’t jesus or a savior or anything like that, but it’s a day for celebration in my eyes. we need to save ourselves from this conspiracy crap and lies and we at least made a major step in right direction today, hoping to run some peoples party candidates and win them
  17. OP also the flip side to that, is Biden got 74 million votes... imagine if the left run a candidate who they actually want
  18. @Yarco well said. There is truth to OP statement but I think a lot of them are misguided, we all know the Republican Party is the party of personal gain and most trumpists simply want more money and they may not agree with his racism but they support him anyway, I certainly don’t like that Biden has a somewhat credible rape allegation cause I have high standards but I voted for him anyway. it doesn’t mean they aren’t what you say they are, but you don’t fight hate with hate, you fight it with love OP. the correct response is to approach them and understand them, education too, but not forced, and also love and empathy, if they still don’t agree then this is America and we must respect there opinion. demonization is part of why trump lost
  19. Convinced this guy is trolling and thread should probably locked for low quality, he “elaborates” on points but they are Tim Pool points.
  20. I guess I’d rather be optimistic and fall back to reality or be pleasantly surprised than realist and right haha. I’m not too hopefully about Florida but I saw that in Georgia women were waiting in line 10 hours to vote and that got me hopeful cause I doubt any POC would stand in line 10 hours to vote for trump. i don’t care what states he wins as long Biden wins the EC and popular vote
  21. @Leo Gura what would he need to do? Hoping for the 3 branch consolidation as well as public support for this. in the debate he said a coalition of legal scholars will help with reforms I wonder if they will come up with similar solutions.
  22. @Leo Gura hahahaha I guess that’s a good point but I’m hoping a majority of people follow through and match the polling and people realize trump is too bad for a second term
  23. @Leo Gura alright fair enough, odd you’re giving trump Florida when Biden’s about 65% favored to win it
  24. At the least you need term limits(8-12 years) if you can’t pack the court, or a two thirds majority senate votes to be confirmed these would all be steps in the right direction.
  25. @Leo Gura I’d say Texas could go blue it’s not impossible. Unlikely but it was also unlikely Biden would win the nomination biden wins 300+ electoral votes and wins PA NC IA OH WI MI and maybe Texas
