The tragedy in people who become influential and start a podcast is that they think that their expertise transfers to a host of other topics. Jordan Peterson is definitely an expert when it comes to psychology, and he has some beneficial philosophies. However, him, like Joe Rogan (Although Joe Rogan repeatedly admits that he's 'just a comedian but with like a billion people listening to his podcast) who hosts guest that make dubious and sensational claims, Jordan thinks that he's got the lowdown on politics, and other fields of science.

We've definitely reached a point in podcasting where it's at least the beginning of podcasters becoming the mainstream media. Judging by how many podcasters refer to the mainstream media, you'd think that FOX and CNN would have substantial influence, but when was the last time that you watched either of those? (Unless you're 53+ as their demographic has been older since I started counting in 2003.)

People with Podcasts that need to release episodes regularly need material, and the material that never gets old for the human psyche is bad news, salacious news. The magnetic pull of that cannot be escaped. Commentary like podcasts seemingly necessitate that the world be an awful place.

Jordan Peterson's podcast has started running ads for Buying Gold in case of the coming financial meltdown, and for a VPN service to keep you safe from the corrupt government.

How in the world is any government being corrupt news to anyone, especially someone who is 52+?

Look back to around 2003, you'll see progressives with megaphone and all, trying to get people to understand how the government is corrupt, except that back then many people in America, and the mainstream news, were pounding the war drum towards Iraq.

My greatest ask of any stranger is to become familiar with logical fallacies, and cognitive biases. A world more fluent in those is a world that I want to live in.

Synchronicity & The Law of Attraction

" T he Secret teaches us that we create our lives, with every thought every minute of every day. Living The Secret offers tools and ideas to help you live The Secret and create the life of your dreams." - "As The Secret has swept the world and touched millions of lives, we have received so many stories of lives being transformed into joy." -The Secret W e shouldn't underestimate the power of synchronicity. "Synchronicity" is usually thought to be the opposite of "coincidence." Coincidental events seem to have no rhyme or reason. But, The Secret proposes that by consciously applying the Law of Attraction you can change every aspect of your life. Synchronizations seem to be perfectly orchestrated to arrive at exactly the time we need them, as if by divine order . Perhaps you can remember a few events or experiences that where too "trippy" to write off as mere coincidence. For example, instances where you were thinking of a certai

Does Art Necessitate Mental Unrest?

Music alone is not enough And being a film director is too much It's usually the case that there's nothing that I want to say badly enough to put myself through the labor. There was a time when I really wanted to say something, and I did. But, mental well being, in a way, quells the desire to express myself through art. Something about art has been about me not being seen enough, good enough, or just enough period. Feeling like enough kills the drive to express yourself in what David Bowie once called "such rarefied terms". I still make music, I still record music, almost never finish it, and share it with others even less. There's more to me than being a musician. I do have a love for it, but I need more. I always hated math, I've grown curious about it, and have gotten substantially better. The pandemic compelled me to become a roof salesman and to get my insurance adjusters license. I still laugh at that, but nothing is wasted. Transferable knowledge is tak

School and Home School

  Oh my. I don't have time to write this. So it will be as follows:   1. What is school for? I think that Seth has a good grasp on this at the bottom, see [1] 2. There's an ongoing debate about homeschooling vs. public schooling. 3. I agree with most things about home schooling. Which is why I take the view that my kids are home schooled 5 days a week, from 3pm to 9pm, on the weekends, and all of their vacation time. 4. Home schooling should feel like art, it's enjoyable (largely), so don't worry about overloading the tone of "school" in it. 5. Everyone's situation is different: (a) Some of us have checks coming to us from the government that give us all day to do as we please. (b) Some of us have to work long hours every day to survive. (c) Some of us have a spouse that gives us all day to do with as we please. (d) Some of us are the spouse that gives the other all day to do as they please. etc. 6. Thus, our ideals aren't applicable to everyone. 7. Th
