  1. Well Russia is a broken country, ever since she went from being a European superpower in the early 20th century to a communist hell hole, the Russian citizens suffered. Say if Russia never had a 1917 revolution, Russia would be one of the most developed of the European nations. You would not see even a 10th of the problems you see today. I hate Putin and his weird fantasies, but if he followed in the footsteps of tsar Nicholas II, Russia would come back to her greatness, to the greatness of what used to be the Russian empire. I know this was deep, but my honest opinion to this subject area.

    @kray I feel like I would like NYC. The anonymity. Just another speck amongst millions of others. With that said, I can imagine there's 1000s of different groups, clubs, activities to join. You can bounce in and out until you find a few tribes. 

    If I lived in NYC I'd join a Chess club.

    If I lived in NYC I'd find some guys to do pickup with.

    I could go on and on...

    Well I’m living in Pittsburgh PA now, so not as much of a hustle bustle city as New York, also got not single 😂


  3. Unrelated, but I also think a lot of immigrant communities in developed western countries take in the negative aspects of american thug culture and make it their own. Kinda the negative of our culture's effect on the rest of the world. I mean you have a serious problem of black on black crime in London, in London! Point is not everywhere is America, and applying American politics to different places is just stupid. With the case of Sweden, you had a completely white, homogenous society not too long ago, and all of a sudden introduce these immigrants. Now add in some far left American politics in the mix, and you have a recipe for crime and gangs. 


  4. @Leo Gura Honestly you think like the majority of Asian Immigrants in America. My parents would honestly prefer to live in a diverse, but White/Asian dominated area over somewhere thats more black and hispanic. Even me, I would love having black and latino friends, but I would never dare live in a black/hispanic majority area, too much crime. Objectively white and asian areas are safer, but black and hispanic areas are cooler (hence gentrification)

    I think its a bit of a moralistic stance that the state takes when it doesnt excecute its criminals. Because the citizens of the state are a product of the state. Why doesnt the state have enough ways to stop and help criminals to not become criminals in the first place? So the state is responsible for it in a certain sense. Its easy to just kill them and not take responsibility for your action. But thats not truth.

    I agree with this, but I think that simply takes time. At the end of the day we need to vote people into office who are willing to reform the system. At the end of the day we the people have the power. We just need to vote for the right people.

    Someone who is an absolute danger to society and cannot be saved can also be locked up permanently in a maximum security prison and only allowed an hour a day of exercise. 

    There's an element of retribution in the death penalty. Is it low consciousness to want retribution in the form of death?  

    You'd be surprised how dangerous these inmates can be to other inmates behind the walls of prison. Yeah it's not high conscious, but sometimes we have to deal with real world issues with real world solutions. Once we as humanity evolve, then we reconsider, and maybe we won't have as many sick criminals out there. But in a world where a HUGE section of the population is stage red, we need stage red solution, fight fire with fire. You can't defeat stage red with stage green, that is a recipe for disaster. That only works in a world where theres only <1% of people who are stage red in this world, but that is far from the truth in our world today.

    Isn't taking drugs a thing humans do? It's important in almost every culture.

    It is I’m not denying that, but I guess, with a self admitant  bias, that can take you only so far. In the Hindu tradition, a lot of stage turquoise sages, gurus, and yogis achieved these high levels of consciousness without the use of external substances. Again I’m not excluding or undermining other cultures, but I’m just giving an example where huge advances were made in consciousness without drugs.

    It's incredible how well-written this show is. There is nothing like it and there never will be anything to equal it. To create a show like The Sopranos you first have to create a human being like David Chase, and I doubt the world of television will ever see that kind of genius again. I think the character of Tony Soprano is even better than Walter White. 

    This is my favorite scene:

    Very subtle. Beautifully shot. Great performance by James Gandolfini. And I love that song.

    I think it's the relationship between Tony and Dr. Melfi that made this show special:

    I love Melfi. She is mature, intelligent, and classy. 

    Robert McKee analyzed Walter White to be more dimensional than Tony, but I like Tony more than Walter, because he's a more plausible character. Walter's transformation is fascinating but unrealistic. Breaking Bad is a thrilling ride, but, in my opinion, there's more emotion in The Sopranos. At least in the long-run. David Chase sacrifices short-term pleasures for long-term satisfaction. 

    I just love that this show is so New Jersey 😂

    @Yali I don't have sober access to the level of consciousness created by 5-MeO. It would be hard to live with that level of consciousness.

    @Leo Gura but why use a chemical for that? If you want to realize the profundity of life, shouldn't you realize the profundity of being a human, without adding chemicals to your body? I'm completely for psychedelics to open that door, but after that shouldn't it be you, not the drug, that takes you to these levels of consciousness? At the end of the day, the hero's journey is about avoiding the path of least resistance, and isn't taking 5 meo to those profound levels taking the path of least resistance? I'm sorry, but I find it rather cocky from your side to say that you have reached the highest level of awakening and god realization without at least appreciating others have too, without the use of psychedelics. I know many will dispute this, but Sadhguru reached many of these levels of consciousness without the use of psychedelics. I agree that psychedelics may have an important role in introducing one to the path, but I also think that after a while you have to give up on adding more chemicals to your body, and walk the path with the authenticity and beauty of the human body.

    Yeah paranoia was one of the reasons i quit smoking weed, This how ever you do still have a flavor of that same mechanism functioning. But your more aware of it, rather than meshed all up in it I would say. Its almost just a little lower of a degree of the same thing. like if smoking weed puts your paranoia at a 10, for me this only puts it at a 5 or 6.. I think thats the best way I can describe it. However that number will go up the higher your dose. I have the gummies so 5mg. I once tired up to 5 of them at a time and it was way too fucking much. I find 2 is manageable and 1 is suggested. Depends on your senstivity. Your not trying to just get high here but if thats your goal then they will certainly do the trick. lol. If anything this a great tool to working through consciously observing your paranoia as an object of attention. You will be able to actually be aware of it and not trapped by it how ever youll still have the same feeling but it wont like be too overwhelming as it subsides based on your attention. The biggest thing i find about it is It basically magnifies all your thoughts. I would even word at as it exaggerates thoughts. Its very good for contemplation.

    I also know that there is THC-O and HHC. Given these three main derivatives, which one of the three offers the best euphoric experience?

    Yes the effects are as real as smoking a blunt, at the right dosage. I dont smoke weed anymore but Ive tried Delta 8 and i was literally just as high as if I smoked. It slows down mental processing speed and reduces cognition. It may be useful for silent sitting contemplation as it slows down your thinking so much that your really able to go deep into every thought if you want. But its not very useful due to the drastic cognitive reduction. 

    The reason gas stations can sell it is because its legal. Thats the only reason. Delta 9 is regular marijuana. That is still decriminalized. (in the US) The only difference between the 2 is a location of a particular chemical bond within the molecule making it Delta 8, then if that same bond is in a different location on the molecule it becomes Delta 9. Because of that location shift it becomes its own new compound that is legal.

    I've heard that with Delta 8, you won't get that paranoid, is this true?

    Definitely real effects, unlike CBD. It's as safe as delta-9 is.

    So how are they selling them in gas stations?


  13. So I’ve recently learned about THC’s younger cousin delta 8. Are there any real effects from delta 8, or is it more like CBD? Is it safe or dangerous to consume?
