  1. I recently made a new video series talking about the foundations of psychological development (according to me) where I use movies as examples. My niche is men struggling with porn addiction, but these videos are applicable to everyone. Thought you guys might enjoy them as my own perspective and development have been very much influenced by Leo. I would love any thoughts, criticisms, or simply a watch and a like In very brief, the movies I cover are: The Martian and technical change, or a change in knowledge or skill. Most people get caught up with technical change when in reality they need the next change. Inside Out and adaptive change, or a change in mindset. It's not merely about learning new things, but about changing your day-to-day lived experience. For example, do you have a growth mindset or fixed mindset? Do you respond to emotions with more negative emotion or repression, or by feeling them fully? The Witch and stage transition. This is basically just the idea that you go through stages in life. I use Robert Kegan's transition from Socialized Mind to Self-Authoring Mind as an example. It Follows and positive disintegration, or the idea that mental suffering is sometimes a sign of growth rather than some sort of disease. In fact, in is a necessity for growth. Evil Dead Rise and the cultural embeddedness of interpretation. Our maps of reality influence how we interpret reality and our maps are often determined by our culture.

  2. I haven't watched the below video yet, but I have read the book they released (found at the link below). I thought everyone here would find it interesting. If you've been following the Nordic Metamodern movement you'll probably recognize some of the people in the organization. Big names include Daniel Gortz (one of the writers of the fictional Metamodern philosopher Hanzi Freinacht), Dr. Gregg Henriques (creator of the Unified Theory of Knowledge) and the guys at Integral Stage, Layman Pascal and Bruce Alderman, among others.

  3. Okay cook, thank you for clarifying. In this video I more focus on emergence and the causal processes that go into the emergence of sex/gender. It’s basically redefining sex/gender in terms of a process ontology rather than substance. Definitely something to consider in future videos so thank you for pointing to that.
  4. Could you please help me understand what distinction you’re trying to point to? I’m not sure I follow.
  5. Haha fair enough. I think of gender/sex as the non-essentialist effect of a complex dynamical system containing many causal processes that must be understood, but reduced to, from the biological, systemic, cultural, and first person experience. Each individual is an expression of this “spirit” and in turn feeds into the spirit itself with every interaction and experience they have. If you don’t understand what that means I guess you’ll just have to watch the video
  6. Hello everyone, I made a video trying to articulate my current understanding of gender so as to better point to something like a positive masculinity. It draws from queer theory, metamodern theory, integral theory, and complexity science. I've been watching Leo's videos since 2015, so I really value the community he's created. I would love to get everyone here's perspective on it. There are a few criticism I would already lay against it: Equivocating between gender and sex. I was trying to point to a superordinate category that contained either but didn't really explain this well enough. Not adequately differentiating between social construction and objective reality. As I said, I'm inspired by Dr. Jason Storms metamodern theory and their concept of metarealism, as well as Leo's Idealistic focus on reality as hallucination and Integral Theory's distinction between interiority and exteriority, but again, I didn't make this clear enough in the video itself. I also didn't spend enough time on holarchies and complex systems within each holonic level, and each quadrant. I think there is only so much I can cover in one video before it becomes an entire articulation of a philosophical system, but some things I need to work on for sure. Let me know what you think. Thank you so much!
