  1. How ? for example if I read a book about Kegan level of development or any of Ken Wilbers book; it will be good to compare the two, But how do you go by finding their limitation? One time you criticized SD by mentioning that it might not be applicable to regions outside of the Western World, and though I disagree form my own observations, your proposition persested and I cannot prove you wrong without having you see form my own perspective, which when I'm thinking, seems like a difficult task since it's seems yours has some level of convection not observation. In summary I don't think limitation are very obvious to see (at least for me) other than it being a map not a territory kind of thing . EDIT: maybe the only way to find out is to conduct these studies in other regions of the world ? that could be one emperical solution. although I feel like it's like going to measure the cost of another country just to prove that your tools of measurement do the same thing in other places around the globe.
  2. @Leo Gura good, thanks! I’m always grateful for your great work, and just want you always be at the peak of your creative output. Otherwise you’ve helped me a lot seeing shit ideas form good ones (I guess you’d call that : you improved my epistemology!) and for that I’m really grateful.
  3. @Leo Gura I want to ask you this question because I know if I should start a whole thread just about this. I hope you answer it: Why are you making videos about controversial people/figures ? - Like Andrew Tate or Jp - doesn’t this take valuable time form your mission as I understand it ? when are you going to cover all the big topics you’ve been promising/hoping to make and what you aim to make actualized.org about ? I feel like your wasting a good time instead of making a video about a topic that can transform our understanding of reality you make a video about Tate. Just wondering what value do you see in it that don’t?
  4. This post will seem like I’m giving my own conclusions or my own anecdotal stories, but I hope that it in this way might shed a light on what maybe, in addition to Green/leftist pushing their agendas, what can be another layer to this problem. I’m a foreigner living in the us for about 9 years now, and form my point of view having lived and traveled outside of the the US, this loneliness problem also definitely has to do with how the American society and even (to a very apparent degree ) the way cities are designed in here that drive people appart. The sense of sick “individualism” that is, even though it breath of fresh air to people used to less individual oriented societies, can quickly turn toxic and sickening. In retrospect, Men where I’m form in college never struggle with having friends, you meet people and you hang out with them like a pack. I don’t know a single guy who’d tell you they felt lonely or isolated. Not to mention people knowing their immediate neighbors, or staying in close touch with their childhood/early school friends, having deep life-long relationships with them. When I fist arrived I was shocked, and honestly stayed in disbelief of how things are like here! Yet I played with it, being used to not having this much binderies/autonomy/freedom. yet I quickly realized how it made me feel like I didn’t belong/alienated and its wierd that even people who are born and raised feel the same way about where they live. What I’ve gathered is there is a false sense or a promise that you are going to go “someplace” or find “someone/some people ” “somewhere” where then and there you’re at the right spot with the right people where you can form friendships and/or commit to “being” there - in reality of course you never do. - So it's ok to spend a semester talking to your classmate, or year working with you co-workers and then not talk to them ever again. “Your not “there” yet and so these people are not so important to keep in touch with.” This seems to be like a program that everyone here has running in their heads, which is madness to people living anywhere else! Social life in the us sucks! even though I live close to a major city, where you can find people actually walking side to side -instead of all packed up in cars- It’s still tainted with this crap individual sense. That you would be breaking an invisible norm to ask for directions, or to asume someone has the time to help you or give an honest little piece of their time. Compare this to were I was last summer, in France: we were lost somewhere on the edges of Paris. Some 3 old folks (white guy, and two black and Indian ladies) saw the look on our face, said something in french, guided us to hop on the bus with them and on the road were fighting over who’s got the right directions that can lead us where we wanted to go; they were complete strangers, not even in a trouristy part of the town, didn’t speak English and me and my family differently didn’t look like them, yet they helped us like we where citizens of their country. On the streets kids were playing on the side of the road with their parants barely paying attention to were they where going. Families, friends and couples hanging out in open parks giving zero attention to time, relaxed. What it brought to back to me was the feeling of what it felt like to live in a “society”. Compare that with the US where the past 2 paragraphs are practically impossible in so many different ways. No wonder people are lonely here, society is spilt between ridged individualism and leftist agendas that misguide the young folks, where the hell can they go?
  5. Which ones work for you ? I bought Modalert and it doesn’t do much for me.
  6. Which brand of Modafinil do you have?
  7. You are just not asking the right existential questions to break it :
  8. The piano piece is a really nice choice!
  9. Had an interesting experience being around my family and relatives this thinks giving, whom are very centered in my view around stage blue-orange: rational thinking yet vaules family and self-identify as homophobes… yep literally! ( they absolutely refuse anything and everything that has to do with being LGBTQ) It was like being with current Jordan Paterson for 3 days. Which I tried to use as a practice for my own development and expansion of world-view IDk learned anything useful or if i did well or I just hearing them express their world view openly and proudly, maybe they only thing that I learned was that people have the freedom to think whatever they like. I feel like I just viewed a number of adults in a state of hate/anger and/or unwillingness to discuss their ideas or see the world form different lens. I tried to grant them they opportunity to say what they like without me debating or interrupting with what I though. What I didn't like was how it felt like I had to cheer them out for every opinion they had or I would be the opposition, it was physically very tense for me to be in that space but I did what I could. Some of the was discussed during the gathering (NOT my own opinion): vaccines causes disease and turn people gay, black people are inherently driven towards crime/troubles making, genrally there is no justification for being gay and they openly refused to go to a place just because the name of the address had the name “Gayloard” in it. would like to hear your 💭
  10. @Leo Gura plugging more gradual and last more so the experience is interpreted bretter vs. vaping immediate last less time ?
  11. I don’t agree, I think Nora is at stage yellow, I don’t know a lot about her but she is the daughter of a systemic thinker and a systemic thinker herself; just look up Nora Bateson and warm data, and you’ll get very inserting results on YT: Daniel and Nora grew up on a mountain of prevailed upbringing and good fortune. While the rest of humanity is born into blue/orange societies; if not red/purple, Nora grew up on the edge of emerging culture : in Esalen, listening to Alan watts and Joseph Camblell as a child 😁 while Daniel had an education of Finish schools : in Finland there are no curriculums, kids are followed by thier teachers in the play ground and a curriculum is designed based on what the kids find interesting … or so I heard. No wonder they grew up being the geniuses that they are 😄
  12. They both have green bits. Daniel when talking about animal rights, even with all his understanding of society and complexity of life can’t see that you wouldn’t be able to let cattle out alone because a family of wolves would eat up what could’ve been 100s of families dinners, and even if you offer protection for no return, that’s just ridiculous, given the amount of land food and care the cattle would need until the die of old age; that IF they didn’t maintain there population like any animal under stable circumstances and protection wound naturally do; meaning indefinite food, work care and occupation of valuable land for no return at all. His thoughts on this matter is coming from green.
  13. Seeing that you say that you say you are in uour late 50s, Would you recommande for a young guy over 26 ?
