You never feel bad about what you think you feel bad about

Homo Sapiens, as a species, is pretty messed up. Everything sets its emotions off, and the specimen gets all emotional, angry, afraid, violent, or sad and depressed.

This emotional reactivity makes getting things done near impossible, learning, or having people together pretty hopeless.

Almost all diseases are a consequence of this phenomenon... people eat to soothe themselves. People eat to eat another out of their fortune. People eat to feel superior. People eat to get some enjoyment out of life.

And they eat to fix the damage that overeating caused, and do all kinds of unnecessary things to reduce the damage. Continue reading "You never feel bad about what you think you feel bad about"

Where did evolution take a wrong turn? Can we go back and take the right turn?

Lots of questions are coming up... Is it possible to be happy, to have ikigai, purpose, and joy if you live in your imagination?

What is the main difference between animals and homo sapiens?

The only differences I can see are

2. homo sapiens have conscience

I have written a lot of articles about living in the mind, and have courses to help you spend at least some of your time outside of the mind that is like a cave...

But I haven't written about conscience. Continue reading "Where did evolution take a wrong turn? Can we go back and take the right turn?"

Butterfly vs caterpillar, human being, vs human aka homo sapiens

Three of those civilizations were destroyed by natural causes, and two of those by the civilization itself... parallel with the current humanity and its civilization a civilization of caterpillars.

Our civilization is heading toward the same self-annihilation, unless... Unless human being happens.

What is the number in your starting point measurements that most predicts how effective you are in life?

Theory induced blindness

I like to call the phenomenon of not being able to see what doesn't agree with your theory of life: theory induced blindness. A more popular and better known label for it is "confirmation bias".

You only hear what you agree with. Or more precisely, you only see what you recognize. And you only consider what you recognize as agreeing with your world view.

I see this every day with people who turn to me, who I coach, who I give a free strategy session to.

And I saw this in this video. 1 Continue reading "What is the number in your starting point measurements that most predicts how effective you are in life?"
