  1. I'm down for this plan. I'm in Seattle. Look forward to it
  2. Leonardo da Vinci is an example of stage Yellow and beyond.
  3. And the best one in my view is dedicated to Neil deGrasse Tyson
  4. This is a great idea! I live in Seattle and I'm fully okay to pay $20 or more for a ticket. I'm sure there are many people from Seattle who would join the meeting. I look forward to it!
  5. I don't give any advice here. It suffices to say that clear communication is a fundamental skill to have. It requires clarity of mind. Leo has a video about communication skills. You can check his video.
  6. I suggest to take a look at this book: The Big Leap. The summary of the book is as follows: When you life is going good and you have a good progress, you mind manipulate you to get back to your old habits. In other words, you capacity to live a good life is limited.
  7. In today's video, entitled Self-Deception - Part 3, Leo discusses different types of self deception. One of these self deception mechanisms is Analysis Bias & holism. This first few minutes of this video vividly shows how analysis bias is quite common among scientists.
  8. Very glad you are posting videos on your blog. I am just curious about the number 666 on the wall. I knew you are the devil @Leo Gura
  9. @ajasatya Thanks for the note. You can find all lectures here. If you are interested in lecture notes, you can refer to the course link I shared. Hope it helps
  10. Guys, If you are interested in today's Leo video and want to study this topic more rigorously. You can check this course. It is all about Gödel, Escher, Bach book. It includes topics like isomorphism, recursion, infinity, self, formal systems, etc.
  11. Guys, This is a great video about Cantor and his take on Absolute Infinity. It would be a great addition to Leo's video. I never thought Leo would go into Absolute Infinity from the mathematics point of view. I'm so happy he did and clarified many points. Hope you enjoy it!
  12. In regard to the recent video by Leo, I came across this video. You may also enjoy it.
  13. I don't think you can remove all of them from your life simultaneously if you are addicted to them. However, you can make a plan to become more conscious about how you use these tools. When you watch TV ask why you are watching TV? When you are checking Facebook, ask yourself what value Facebook has for you? There is nothing wrong with technology or the internet, per say. The problem is when we become attached to these things and they become a source of stimulation rather than a tool. We all need to be careful about what sort of information we take in a daily basis from TV, Media, etc. It does not hurt if you unhook yourself from them temporarily if you can. My 2 cents.
  14. Hi guys, I hear that Leo always advises that suppression of an emotion is destructive and bad. On the other hand, he always encourages us to go through emotional labor. Can someone clarify for me the difference between these two terms? For instance, if I want to get rid of a bad habit, I am required to accept emotional labor. But, how can I know that I am not suppressing my feeling? Thank you!
  15. I come across "NEUROSIS AND HUMAN GROWTH- The Struggle Toward Self-Realization" by Karen Horney. I read half of the book and it was very eye-opening for me so far. This is not a classic self-help book, and the language of the book is academic, unfortunately. However, she uses great examples throughout the book. In this book, the author speaks about the process of self-idealization (neurotic growth) in contrast to self-realization (healthy growth). She then speaks about a variety of neurotic claims. In chapter 3, she speaks about our should statements. And, how our should statements are actually a tool for self-idealization. She also speaks about neurotic pride, and many other neurotic behaviors.
