  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 ?
  14. @Leo Gura you should've asked what cures this cringeworthy behavior (serious) it's actually sad to look at devoted humans that worship the "idol" of god and preform good deeds for good karma etc, and yet aren't able to let go of a depiction that was given to their grand-grand-parents because they are afraid of opposing god, so they cause all kinds of idiocy, and fail to appreciate god's creation. Also could you explaining what Cringe meant ? I could be biased of what I imagine that to be.
  15. seems very turquoise, speaking openly about why some minorities would not be able to get teachings that are higher than their level of development
  16. I have noticed recently that my left rib cage is sticking out to the left more than the right side, I've never really noticed that before. I've had x-rays and had doctors look at my spine last year and no one have mentioned any problem with my spine. I'm mentioning this as I had costocondritis last year (first time of my life getting this) and took a number of x-rays, but no doctor mentioned that this might be due to a ribcage rotation or anything of like that. a few months ago, I visited an Osteopathic and he pointed out that when I lay down my left ribs stick out more than the right. I didn't know what he meant until I looked online for people noticing a slightly more sticking out ribcage. like I said I've never noticed this before or had any doubts, I'd even say that now that I'm looking at the mirror, I'm sure that there is a difference than how I remember my ribcage looking at least a year go. in the past two years however I was doing a rotation movement, bringing my arm towards my body and twisting to the left ( it was the only thing that helped me recover from my costo symptoms ) I did this twisting motion almost everyday, and I'm worried that this might shifted my ribcage. I'm wonder if there's a way to help reverse this rotation? ask me for more details if you'd like.
  17. @Tyler Robinson that’s extreme blue which I don’t like either, what i said is that the business owner themselves would be compelled not to lie as much as the could and actually ground themselves and their business with some good values.
  18. @Tyler Robinson you say that there is no healthy side to blue, which I feel is wrong thats my argument, i do not want society to go back to blue that would be crap. The reason why we are talking about a healthy blue values to begin with is because of the unhealthy aspects of other stages that can’t be fixed with some bits of blue values. you don’t think the culture of stealing people’s money and selling them broken products is bad? You wouldn’t get that with some business owner that has integrated blue values, but you might get it with a stage orange kid who grew up without any blue values and think it’s a great strategy to sell things to people if the product could last for a whole year “who gives a shit about lying to people?”
  19. @Tyler Robinson the problem is that your forcing your world view on someone else’s world view, and making that a valid argument … “but stage blue shouldn't do that because it’s bad/abusive” I’ve lived in a stage red/purple society, i’ve learned to appreciate blue just out of contrast, which is a funny thing! many people in the west will not be able understand this … especially being born in a largely stage orange society where everything just works and people just do their thing and everyone is doing there own part. You kind of just get super blind to what you have for granted.
  20. meditation first for me. I got interested in it after getting curious about the Beatles (not born in the west, so what the Beatles represented was totally not something that I grow up knowing) and then learned about transcendental meditation. after that went on r/meditation learned a bit about buddhism, used headspace the app and persisted with it for about two years of daily meditation (avg 15 min). In the past two years I had a condition that made meditation herd/impossible so I stoped. I'm thinking of getting back to it when I get a bit better. psychedelics came second, used it mainly because I had depression and out of curiosity. not depressed anymore, had a great effect on my life, but no awaking experience as far as I can tell ? I actually don't know what an awaking experience is/what counts as one? it decently improved my emotions and got me get curious about life, I'm still a noob at it, but It's a good force in my life when I use it correctly
  21. @Fearey wouldn’t be easy to change your life to the better with considerable ease with this amount of money? I guess I’m miss-understanding how hard it is to for a stage orange to change course/hardly held beliefs, and see the world form another perspective. EDIT: my intuition says that he’s possibly shoot himself in the foot doing exactly what his socity “told” him to to once you have the money: buy a big ass house an throw parities … that life! Not paying attention to he himself ‘actually’ wanted! Also hanging out with celebrities could’ve ruined him, these people are larger than life and highly abnormal I assume.
  22. @Loba lol i see that, it’d be nice if Disneyland could have a theme parks where you can live these fantasies for a day or two, one for each gender and lgptq+
