Peterson, Jack Slack, Miyamoto Musashi discussed on The Joe Rogan Experience


Top-flight town is not a surprise anymore. There's even amazing guys out there like Jack Slack and Lawrence Kinchen that do bring down on specific fights, fighters and specific techniques where if I send Jack Slack and Lawrence Kansas stuff to my team. All the time and group chats like watch us. Yeah, just watch us. Yes, you know if any of them, pick up like a cheap like Sam art than unlike. Job Done Yeah, and I didn't have to think about it with letter. Those clips are so great to because they'll highlight is specific technique. Those show the KO or the. And then they'll break down all the different moving parts like both those guys are fantastic. Robin blacks created as. Pink Yeah. Very entertaining to is a really entertaining person you know so he and his enthusiasm for martial arts really comes through and I do love his sincerity. Yeah, you're just a thing that is missing. In authenticity in anything you do and just like we talked about. The rogan man cave, but it's not about being a man cave. A extension of everything that you're trying to create for yourself, and that is honestly whether you have the means to create something like this, or you just have the means to create something really small on your own little apartment. Everything that you do should be. In worship so to speak to what your ideal you're trying to create. And you can't do that if you're insincere can't do that if you're if you're just trying to be the packaging and not the item. Yeah, we were talking about that earlier that there's too many I think this is part of the problem. With social media's people are intoxicated with this idea of having other people think they're awesome so they put out all this stuff to make it. Look like you know like they're this amazing person. You know they'll put up these quotes and put up this shit, but. But it's it's not really what they're into. Did just want you to think they're into it? And it comes off that way like you get like one of my biggest pet peeves and I was GONNA. I posted up quote last night, or not a quote rather, but an image of Miyamoto Musashi 'cause I got I got into the book of five rings again. I cannot wait to hear what what just criticism somehow came out of nowhere to tell you what what a jerk you were. How wrong you! Handle if there isn't a case, was pay attention, but what I was GONNA criticize is I was GONNA. Say That I have an issue with. There's a lot of people. Online! It's not even that I have an issue. It doesn't resonate with me is a better way of putting it with thirty native. There's so many people that are posting motivational ship, but they haven't done anything true it is. Trying to be the packaging the item you can do if you feel that, go do this. This is is how you go. Get it. What the fuck of done! I've got to do something. I didn't say this last night, but this is what I meant when I posted it like. If you WANNA, take inspiration, there's something about the words of mea multi Musashi that are profoundly inspiration on because he's a man who best over sixty men and one on one sword fight, so when he's talking about strategy where he's talking about technique and he's talking about preparation, and you must research this. You must look into this. This is how you go. This is how you. You go about attacking. This is how this is. How you play off your opponents strategy. He's talking about life or death with a fucking sore can't get more serious than comes through in his words, many even translation from Japanese to English. Even though it's four hundred years later, there's something about that guy that it gives me goosebumps man a shit all. I fell in Love With Samurai philosophy a long time ago from what NATO Bay and The hugger curry, and there's even one called A. Budo or Samurai. Philosophy of the Samurais I forget the name of it, but it's a really short succinct book that really nails down some things and I think part of why what they have to say is so. so so authentic and so so real so to speak, because it's life or death for them reading a storm of seal by Ernst. And you're reading this guy's take on being in World War One and it's not that he was never afraid. It's not that he didn't understand what war is is just hit from his position as a soldier. In the way, he approached things in the way he even still saw beauty in these moments in living in that part of his life. It's it's clearly somebody that. I believe has a good grip on being towards death, as heidegger would put it like being embracing what it means to be alive, and by embracing that you're also embracing the fact that you are GonNa die is not going away that that death is alongside you and you don't know when it's coming, and there's no need to because you're not supposed to be thinking. Thinking about whether or not, you're going to die or when it's going to calm or anything like that, but you're. You need to be thinking about what you're GonNa do before that time does show up in how you're to do it. And for why you know, what is it? How how are you finding? Meaning and fulfillment in life so that when when death? Death comes along and tugs on your shoulder on your shirt sleeve. You're like all right well. This is it yeah, and those guys people that you've described whether it's Musashi or any of those people would comes out in their words is authenticity because of the fact that they have led these extraordinary lives, and they have faced incredible danger. They have lived. There's there's something. Something about that where you can genuinely learn from those people, whereas there's a lot of people that really haven't, but they know that people long for those things, so they try to recreate it me. Try to recreate these quotes, or they try to find some words that will inspire you to get going in and seize the moment and make the most of the. and go out there and conquer and right and kick ass, and it doesn't mean anything. It's all persona. Attempting to take our presenting the persona of that kind of individual mainly because they know that. Deep Down, all of us realize that there's wait to those kind of. Yes, you know and I'm sure Peterson would be like. tied. We do but He's an example as well when he talks about whatever he's talking about. We're. Talking about. Gulag archipelago or anything he's talking about it from a place of profound understanding, and that resonates like when when he critiques Marxism or critiques, certain philosophies and certain certain trends eighty season in social. Social behavior like he's doing it from a place of profound understanding and that's that's why it resonates with people. That's why he became so famous that people think somehow or another that he became so famous because. There's a an angst in a lot of like week. Men Shirt tapped into. That's the typical criticize level the surface level diagnosis of all these kind of finger prognosis. But, the thing is even as much as. You. PUT IT in perspective. So I have my own journey dealing with with. Marxism Neo Marxist whatever and how it is at one point with a part of my life, and just making me absolutely miserable from another person it was like. Why is the person you were dating? Relationship with and it was just like I'm getting assaulted in a way. No I'm not trying to say words. Violence calm down. I was just under I felt like I was under attack all the time for things that I didn't do and things I from arguments that I had or accusations, then like I. Don't understand why I am being This is being offloaded onto me at the time, so I started researching and researching and researching because I truly believe Essentially like James. Mill, says the that those. Who He who understands only one side of the argument? Not The other understands a little of both and so even through all this I have to re I had to come to the fact that as much as if you'd want to take that shallow diagnosis of of Peterson. It's the same as if you WANNA take a shallow diagnosis of Marxism These things aren't operating out of complete falsity. They're not coming out of nowhere. They're not built upon nothing. There is truth being said in everything this stemming from truth. So that's what you've read marks. There is true critiques there's there's true things within it now where people often go wrong. Is You know they take a seat of.
