  1. I was wondering if any one here lies as an adult to other people. Why? How often? It is a very honest thing to admit so i guess ill begin. This week i lied about playing guitar and how old i was to get an alcohol pass (which i dont drink anyway). I want to be completely honest until the moment. then i am the devil himself. is it ok to lie? or never? do you trust liars?
  2. ah i remember the times when trolling seemed necessary. is this funny for you kids still?? thought you'd be wise as the ai these days.
  3. @outlandish ok
  4. We walk through half our life as if it were a fever dream barely touching the ground our eyes half open our heart half closed. Not half knowing who we are we watch the ghost of us drift from room to room through friends and lovers never quite as real as advertised. Not saying half we mean or meaning half we say we dream ourselves from birth to birth seeking some true self. Until the fever breaks and the heart can not abide a moment longer as the rest of us awakens, summoned from the dream, not half caring for anything but love.
  5. Hey everyone. Here's a quick resource I go to when I feel my lower self kicking in. It's a manifesto of sorts regarding the power of thought. The main message is things may look random, but that there's reason to bring our awareness back to cause and effect of thoughts and actions. I don't have background on the actual source of the knowledge. If that's necessary this thread can be removed (just trying to contribute) https://wahiduddin.net/thinketh/as_a_man_thinketh.pdf
  6. Hey everyone, touching base to see if anyone else is keeping track of questions to contemplate or vocabulary they are looking into. Today I googled what pithy meant, and learned simulacra means a copy from a copy from the video on Leo's blog. I also am looking into questions such as "What am I doing everyday and why!" which hasn't been too fruitful. Maybe needs more open endedness. Another one was "what do examples show" and more short-term, where am i taking this in 2 months... Enough of mine. Whats on your mind?
  7. this thread
  8. Random video i found that helped me see the way. I'm reading many books too but i thought i'd share this instead
  9. Also i wrote this on another post, condensed version of leo's advice from videos.

  10. for the masses, or niche followers of this masterpiece, im curious to know how becoming more conscious manifests in your actions. I'm asking for concrete examples. What I'm really open to is how can I convert the fact that I'm aware of what I'm doing to change. I want to pace myself so im asking for estimates. What change were you after? How long did it take? Extra prompts, What did you wrestle with on your way there? Do you struggle to sustain the change? Does it feel like it's more will power or awareness to stay aligned with your top values?
  11. yess especially on epistemology. which ones are you reading? Hopefully no calculus haha also check out textbooks smart people are "required" to read... You can do this with any university. https://harvardcoopbooks.bncollege.com/webapp/wcs/stores/servlet/BNCBHomePage?storeId=52084&catalogId=10001&langId=-1
  12. i vote we take a recess from videos and focus on going deep with topics on the forum for a few months. who's with me?
  13. what "sensitive" info? at this point, i wouldnt mind more spare time for work i could never outsource.
