From Green to Yellow (and maybe hints of communal Turquoise?)

PewDiePie ... comedian who have the most subscribers on youtube. He makes content from cheap jokes to some "serious talks". I can notice some chameleon structure that he has. In this video we can also see some resemblance to the stage yellow. He consists of many colors and is not yellow at most of his videos... But from time to time he also shows this side.

We, who don't know him personally, can only wonder, if he acts more yellow, when he is not in front of camera. I can definitely say for myself that he is partly yellow, which means that we have a lot of influential people like him all over the world. 

The statistics that Leo gave in the Yellow video - 1% of people and 5% of influence - seems unreasonable. I think that a lot of people have yellow in them. These numbers are not important, except if you want to feel special as the 1%. 

What do you guys think?

@primzolo PewDiePie is most definitely NOT yellow, like you yourself said. I'm not going to watch all of his videos to make a really high level analysis of his development, but one thing is for sure: he is not a good example of a yellow person.

@primzolo

I haven't watched a video from Pewdipie in months, but he strikes me as mostly Orange.

Peter Joseph; known about this guy since his first Zeitgeist film in 2008. Surprised no one's mentioned him. Haven't bothered to think where about's he fits on the scale. Green / Yellow

These ladies were not just capable of love but further more than that, they were able to transform their love into making a change and progress in mankind. They are absolutely adorable.

@molosku Why I posted this video is to show the part, where he uses this (yellow) perspective. No video posted here is perfect example of yellow, because in practice it is almost impossible to find a person, that qualifies this perfect restrictions. But, if we think about a specific moments with specific people, we can see that lessons can be learned in them - in this PewDiePie case "yellow" lesson.  Nobody expects that you would analyze every video - if the purpose of this tread is only analyzing everyone who fits in description of Yellow as a whole person - then my mistake. 

@Etherial Cat Yes, I think in most of his videos, he is exactly like this. With this example I only tried to show that even, if he makes orange level appearance, it doesn't mean that he is mostly orange. As is my knowledge about yellow stage - it has an ability to consciously switch between tier 1. stages, when they are appropriate. 

The fact is, that yellow isn't always the optimal color with which you can deal with your life - and that in itself is a yellow conclusion.

P.S. With this replies, I only tried to explain myself, why I made post of him here. It is only my opinion, of course - but I felt some resonance that he would bring a lot of disagreements like: "he doesn't belong here". Maybe that's true.

Lord Mansfield: British judge. Makes an important chance in CollageMaker_20180709_123837379.jpghistory.

Okay it's too long to write. I adore this movie, I have had taken my time to write down most of the lines of the movie to my journal.

He adopts this black daughter; he resists immense pressure not just while adopting her but then through the Zong Ship case while giving the most humanistic decision at the court... The humanistic attitudes of Dido -her daughter, John her husband.. and the way they create a shift.. Is .. Still makes my heart pounding while even writing this.. 

I couldn't find his final speech at the court in YouTube, but:

Great painting of Belle and her cousin. What I noticed in the movie was, no one wanted to marry Belle's cousin in the end, so Belle supported her cousin's arranged marriage by giving her dowry. UK had arranged marriages at the time. The point to this is, just because someone's marriage is arranged, doesn't mean it's at stage blue, and it doesn't mean it stays at stage blue. Arranged marriages are more nuanced than that. Nowadays, most ppl are not familiar with it. When ppl hear about arranged marriages, they may just pass it off as stage blue marriage and don't give it a second thought as to what happens when it's not stage blue.

Alanis Morissette. Most people know her more for her earlier Orange-tinted work (which North American culture finds most relatable), but these days she appears to be at green/yellow. (As she moved into green and beyond, her music changed and became less "mainstream" you could say.) This is a good example of a song with aspects of both green and yellow, I would say:

This one as well, I would say:

There are many more examples in her recent work. Her husband's work is at a similar stage.

Also astrology is one of the models/tools in the journey of the evolution of human psyche toward self-awareness

Generally speaking, throughout a Saturn transition an individual starts to recognize some sparks of self-realisation through some internal or external blockages of any kind. The very inherent inner sensation of existence, the cognition of the external world and the perception of the self start to be get disturbed. This generally causes an arise of a panic within, then either the individual starts to resist and grab on the recognized and familiar tools and ways of living -and regress- or finds a way to cope with the shifting waves which stimulates the current awareness for awakening or at least for expansion.

It doesn't necessarily mean that every individual's way comes across to know astrology itself; but those important triggering moments represents the opportunities for the recognition of new layers in consciousness.

This journey is of course described and formulated in different various models; astrology is just one them. A very functional and efficient tool to have.

 

Some of the system thinkers through the methodology of astrology are:

Dane Ruthar (The Astrology of the Personality; his works were very influential in the new age movement)

Stephen Arroyo (The Inner Dimensions of the Birth Chart)

Steve Forrest (Founder of the concept of Evolutionary Astrology) (I know him personally:) )

Robert Zoller (Predictive Techniques: An Astrological Guide to the Methods of the Sages)

What do we think of mr. Alan watts? He was a wise man and a controversial figure for sure, but does he qualify as yellow? He had lots of knowledge about eastern religion and culture, and he also talked lots about pretty high level spiritual consepts. I do doubt he ever embodied those concepts really, as he was an alcoholic. I think he's yellow nonetheless.

I've always seen him as Turquoise but I don't know his work that well. He has talks about non-duality and he's appreciated as a spiritual teacher

I would not put in the same basket as your "traditional" sages and gurus. He is more of an intellectual i think. I'm not judging alcoholics but the fact that he was one probably prevented him to trancend himself and many other things. I dont know, I haven't studied him as a person in debth either.

@Zweistein She is Green at best . . . If at all, there is Tier 2 in Green, . . That'd be perfect for her. 

Here is another video with Emma Watson (can't help it, Leo's list had too few women for my taste ;-)

And here are the reasons why I think that she is one of the first feminists who sees the bigger picture:

- she realizes that the word "feminism" is a problem 

- she sees the complexity

- she is openminded

- she can put herself into the men's perspective and is very understanding

- she is doing research and analyzing, connecting the dots, pulling ideas from different sources

- she is able to provide concentrated information (-> UN speech)

- she is able to act quite neutral and is building bridges

- she has a vision

Convinced?

Yes! Maybe the best example of the Yellow stage that I can think of, where Orange and Green are fully integrated.

His Stanford lectures are precious and a must watch if you want to move towards Yellow.
