  1. Mean IQ differences among various ethnicities are a real thing (even in Europe, where e.g. Western Europe is generally higher than Eastern.) That they exist doesn't mean you want to "exterminate the inferior races." It does mean that this leftist idea that everything is socially constructed and all differences are due to environmental factors (iow total denial that genetics play any part in intelligence and ability) is not just a fantasy or a lie, but one of the most bald-faced lies one can possibly tell. This is why leftism at its essence is seen by many on the right as either wishful thinking or moral narcissism or some kind of vendetta against God and nature. If something this foundational is lied about, then all specific policies and ideas must be questioned as well.
  2. Put down the Leo solipsism kool-aid, please. I swear this forum is like a bunch of three year olds who think they can fly if they flap their arms hard enough or something. "The Truth" is that what you think you are (a separate self with a delimited identity) is an illusion. It doesn't mean that upon realization of this illusion you suddenly become invulnerable to everything that being human entails (physical limitations, pain, illness, aging, death, unmet basic human needs, etc.) This is not DC Comics or Manga. That some people have siddhis is irrelevant; you don't need to be enlightened to have them, and being enlightened is no guarantee of having them.
  3. "No porn" is a good idea regardless of the existence of Deep Fakes. As for banning it -- good luck. It's like banning music file sharing back in the day before streaming services. The best you can do is reduce the distribution channels.
  4. That is a silly argument. There's a difference between feeling good over a period of weeks, months and years and having a several hour high which is followed by a crash. You can't possibly believe that's a reasonable argument.
  5. Pain can cause anyone to go insane or dissociate, enlightenment doesn't make you immune from being human. Enlightened people aren't Superman.
  6. That's an inflation experience. Why would a solipsistic experience be pleasant? Has anyone here actually claimed that? It seems pretty horrifying tbh. Lots of "logic" is specious. Lots of things sound logical when you can't recognize where the logic goes off the rails. You have to understand the difference between an experience of inflation (or cosmic ego) and the experience of nonduality. If you expand your boundaries to include the entire universe, there is still an ego. You're identifying with the all. Nonduality means the very process of identification is dissolved. This is virtually incomprehensible to someone who still has a fairly strong ego (and is susceptible to ideas like "solipsism.") It's as if the idea of "ego" is meaningless. It is seen as a fiction. This is not the same as '"I" am the only thing in existence.'
  7. Can we be honest here and admit that "take the teachings and leave the teacher" is pretty much a cult tenet? Why would you take the teachings? How do you know the teachings are "right"? Simply because they're out there? Because Leo says so? Because he's a charismatic YT content creator and that somehow lends credibility to the teachings? Well, firstly, Leo does not get to redefine terms, he does not get to have his own private English vocabulary. Secondly - that definition is pretty much standard Advaita Nonduality. Or if not - please tell me how it's different. Thirdly - wrong. He DOES NOT say what you're saying he's saying. That is your comforting interpretation of what he is saying. He claims unique spiritual knowledge which transcends traditional spiritual teachings (it's right there in that outburst.) So, you can't claim that this is in essence standard advaita/panentheism.
  8. Did you read the thread? Quite a few people here seem to be immune to reason and will defend and rationalize Leo's behavior and appear to have completely swallowed his basic spirituality schema. If that isn't cult-like behavior, I don't know what is. Even the criticisms here basically miss the mark. The critics are clutching at straws -- their basic take is that Leo's teachings aren't the problem, it's his behavior that is. Well, no; the two go hand-in-hand. You can't separate them out. It's not a "Good Leo, Bad Leo" situation (Leo is good when he just teaches and bad when he lashes out at people.) Leo's behavior and his teachings are reflections of each other. Solipsism as a spiritual teaching can only come from someone who has experienced profound inflation (i.e. "cosmic ego.") According to him "ego IS God." Why would you expect different behavior from someone who believes that?
  9. Yeah, totally only a 13/30 on the narcissism scale (below average.) Completely normal behavior. Not a shred of grandiosity there at all. Just "Leo being Leo." Yup - totally not a cult.
  10. You read this forum, imbibed its solipsistic teachings and then, lo and behold, your trip reflects those teachings? Well, isn't that just a pure coincidence, lol. Yeah, I've taken psychedelics too -- some powerful ones. Never in my experience did I get a message of solipsism from them.
  11. Small mind, little comprehension. Maybe you like concrete examples. "When they ran outside, she said, they heard the suspect uttering racial slurs about "white privilege."" That's pretty much where modern progressivism leads. A fucking accountant in a Lexus, not some nutjob on the way to jail.
  12. There's nothing inherently "progressive" about modern leftist dogma (such as intersectionality) which is a regression to tribalism and group identity. It's authoritarian, collectivist, triumphalist and really, based in romantic irrationalism. There is nothing resembling "progress" in such dogma by any metric a reasonable person would recognize.
  13. Let me share my highly un-PC and insensitive model of anxiety. I used to have anxiety disorder before I made changes in my life, so this is from personal self-discovery (including psychedelics.) Anxiety is what babies have when mommy isn't responding or daddy is absent. It's a response of "shit, I've been abandoned." It's basically "the world is a threatening place AND I'm helpless to deal with it." The problem is that second part: I'm HELPLESS to deal with it. I depend on others to an unhealthy extent. This is a normal response if you're an infant. If you're an adult, it means you have to rectify the feelings of helplessness in dealing with the world. Maybe it's by acquiring more skills, more self-reliance, by shoring up your weaknesses or intentionally facing your fears. Maybe it's as simple as cooking for yourself or doing regular physical exercise. The point is, if you think meditation is a panacea, you're going to be disappointed. It's just a tool to get you to the place where you're ready to make positive changes in your life. So you may as well think about what that needs to look like now.
  14. It's not enough by itself. It may be useful to become calmer, to get insight, etc., but ultimately you have to make changes in your life and I don't know what those would have to be because I don't know what your life is like and what's causing you to experience anxiety.
  15. Honestly, take some of that money and travel and gain more of that experience.
