  1. @Leo Gura I wouldn’t trust sadhguru too much if I were you.
  2. @Leo Gura It seems certain at this point that Trump will be convicted for his crimes.
  3. @Leo Gura When will the next video be?
  4. @Leo Gura I think you trust sadhguru too much. Some of his claims are just too extraordinary to believe.
  5. @Leo Gura Another interesting argument against aliens is that, if they were able to travel so far through the galaxy to the Earth, how could they then just crash into a tree? It seems highly unlikely. They should’ve had the technology to avoid that, or at least to teleport the ship back before the firemen got there.
  6. @Leo Gura Leo, when is the next video?
  7. @Leo Gura Do you really believe that Trump will remain silent if he knew that the US government had alien technology? He would’ve posted it on Twitter five minutes after finding out.
  8. @Leo Gura There’s a good counter argument to the idea that the US government is hiding alien spacecraft, which is that Donald Trump was president of the United States. I just don’t see him being able to hide something like that. He would’ve tweeted it out 5 minutes after finding out.
  9. When she uses the word “colonial”, what I see is stage Green anti-hierarchical thinking.
  10. @Leo Gura If they can overthrow Musk, that’s all that matters.
  11. A critique of the blog post by ChatGPT 4: The statement you provided presents a unique perspective, mixing some aspects of reality with an element of humour and satire, although it may be offensive to some individuals due to the generalised statements and usage of explicit language. Here are a few points of critique: 1. Over-generalisation: The statement oversimplifies the distinction between spirituality and science, suggesting that all scientists are disconnected from reality. This perspective fails to account for the complexity of human behaviour and belief systems. Many scientists may also consider themselves spiritual and find their work as a means of connecting with the reality of the physical universe. 2. Stereotypes and Assumptions: The claim that all scientists are paranoid, incapable of attracting partners, or are bad at social connections is an unsubstantiated stereotype that isn't supported by evidence. Scientists, like any other group of people, come with a diverse range of personalities, abilities, and preferences. 3. Distorted Understanding of Science: Science, by definition, is the systematic study of the structure and behaviour of the physical and natural world through observation and experiment. It's an attempt to understand reality as closely as possible using empirical evidence. Thus, the argument that science keeps reality at arm's length seems fundamentally flawed. 4. Unfounded Claims: The statement alleges that no scientist is "awake" without defining what this means or providing any evidence to back up the claim. While it's true that education can shape our views of the world, suggesting that all PhD education equates to brainwashing lacks nuance and is an oversimplification. 5. Misogynistic Undertones: The statement's depiction of gender roles and its crude analogies around female sexuality could be seen as misogynistic and offensive. It oversimplifies the motivations and choices of women in science and reduces their value to physical characteristics. 6. Limited Perspective on Spirituality: The statement defines spirituality as a "raw contact with reality," which may not align with how many people understand or experience spirituality. Spirituality often involves elements of introspection, belief, faith, or a sense of connection to something greater, which can be very personal and variable. While the statement uses a metaphorical and colourful language to compare science and spirituality, its lack of nuance, reliance on stereotypes, and potentially offensive language might limit its effectiveness in engaging a thoughtful conversation on the topic.
  12. @Tobia The wars and bullying happened under Republican presidents.
  13. @MsNobody I would recommend looking at Leo’s booklist. He has many great books on success and money. Also, he has a playlist on Work, Business, Money that you can check out.
  14. @LSD-Rumi Either way, this was an embarrassing day for Russia.
  15. Says the person who referred to conservative media as mind herpes.
  16. @Leo Gura Many spiritual people couldn’t see through the BS of Trump.
  17. I asked ChatGPT to critique Leo’s latest blog post. Here it is: 1. Generalization: The text makes sweeping generalizations about scientists, universities, and corporations. While it's true that there have been instances of scientific fraud and corruption, it's not accurate or fair to say that all scientists or all scientific research is fraudulent or corrupt. Many scientists adhere to strict ethical guidelines and are committed to the pursuit of truth. 2. Misrepresentation of Science: The text seems to misunderstand the nature of science. Science is a method of inquiry that involves rigorous testing, peer review, and replication of results. While it's true that science is conducted by humans who can be fallible and biased, the scientific method itself is designed to minimize these biases and errors. 3. Funding and Influence: While it's true that funding sources can potentially influence research, many scientific institutions have strict rules about disclosing funding sources and managing conflicts of interest. Moreover, the claim that "most scientists are dirt-poor" is not accurate. While scientists' salaries can vary widely, many scientists are well-compensated for their work. 4. Comparison with Religion: The comparison between science and religion is somewhat flawed. While both are human institutions and can be subject to corruption, they operate on fundamentally different principles. Science is based on empirical evidence and is constantly revised and updated in light of new evidence, while religion often involves beliefs that are held on faith and are not subject to empirical testing. 5. Personal Anecdote: The author's personal anecdote about fabricating data in a school science project is not representative of how real scientific research is conducted. In professional science, fraudulent behavior like this is considered highly unethical and can lead to severe professional consequences. 6. Pessimistic View of Humanity: The text seems to have a very negative view of humanity, suggesting that all humans are "selfish, fearful, greedy, clingy, ignorant, closedminded". This is a very broad and negative generalization that doesn't take into account the complexity and diversity of human behavior.
  18. How will you get your vitamins and minerals then?
  19. Next best thing is to intercept Leo on his solo retreats.
  20. @MsNobody I would rather go to Peter Ralston’s retreats just to see if Leo still goes there.
  21. @Leo Gura You should contact Alex O’Connor. He is a fellow Philosophy student, so I’m sure you’ll have a lot to talk about.
  22. We’ve been connected to nature for hundreds of thousands of years. We only grew in consciousness as we urbanised and industrialised.
  23. @Leo Gura Is it a coincidence that AI was created soon after they came?
