How would we ever know what was good if we never knew bad?

6 posts in this topic

So I came across this video

 Alux is the pinnacle stage orange. They glorify being rich yet look away from the evils that come from giant corporations that pollute the planet and don't care that Jeff Bezos breaks labor laws.

 

I watch them occasionally, when some titles catch my eye. And this had me thinking a question I have for a long time. How would we know what was good if we never knew what was bad?

There are some things about reality can't change. Women want a provider and protector. Their biological clock goes faster and they have to get a partner faster than men. We all can't be handsome like (insert attractive male)? We all can't be rich like Jeff Bezos?

Isn't this a zero sum game; survival, like Leo said it is? I mean, if we are praising one quality, aren't we putting one down?

I am still stuck in stage orange, and not advanced like Leo, so talk at a stage orange level

You're on the edge of Green. Don't resist your own evolution.

Have you watched Leo's new video on relativity?

If we're praising survival, then we're putting death down. It's all relative.

We don't "know" what is good.

We determine how good a thing is relative to the things we labelled as "bad".

And usually what be label as "bad" is really self-serving. Basically we say that something is bad if it threatens our own personal agenda.

So, our notions of good and bad are extremely relative and selfish.

So what can one do when they feel inadequate? Like they feel like they don't fit the ideal "trope" like being jacked and being mega rich?

Change perspective.

Feeling inadequate because one can barely afford food is one thing.

Feeling inadequate because one is not mega rich is just ridiculous. This is a serious lack of perspective.

@Shiva so channels like those thrive off of making people feel inadequate?
