'The Wildman Devotional' With Doug Giles

"Restore the idea of wildness to manhood to Christian faith. By the way, folks, when we say restore, it is a biblical idea. These ideas have been really destroyed over time and especially the wool culture today has really just. Heresy has come into the church big time, of course, but you're really dug in many of your books in what you say. You're hoping restore the idea of wildness because, you know, the idea that you have a line behind you Aslan in the chronicles of Narnia. He is not tame. He is wild, but good. That concept is antithetical to our, you know, let's say feminized ideas are domesticated ideas of goodness. And when you say wild man, you mean that in the very best sense. Yeah, I mean, you look at guys like Elijah John the Baptist, Abraham Moses. Again, like, you know, we've talked about before. They've been emasculated. They've been feminized out the wazoo. They're not these, you know, just rough burly type characters anymore. They've got porcelain skin and they prance around and walk through daisies. I think in some of the newer Bible translations, some of these men lactate. I believe that that's, I believe that's in some of the new translations.

Eric and John Discuss What Happens When People Discard Christianity

"Talking to John Z rack, what more do I have to tell you? I think as you were saying in your new book, letter the American church, as Glenn is not attained Lion. And I thought the moment you reminded me of that, I thought of like people like. David French and Russell Moore, their version of Narnia, Aslan is a Persian cat. A pudgy person cat that you pet and you feed a God purse for you. Jesus is your pal. He's your drinking buddy. That's not it. I mean, Christianity is kind of a scary religion. There's only one thing scarier, which is what people do when they throw Christianity aside. What people become when they abandon Christianity is far worse than ordinary paganism. I wish Roman paganism were taking over in America compared to what's taking over.

Walter Hooper and Eric Reflect on C.S. Lewis' Way With Words

"With Michael ward the other day about Reaper cheap at the end of the dawn treader getting into this little coracle and rowing away nobly beautifully up up the standing wave. And into Aslan's country. One of the most beautiful literary images in the history of literature, I think. And given to a mouse, a noble man. Another one. I did all these names I could just talk for days about the names, read the cheap. Where did he get the name Reaper cheap? I think it just sounds exactly right from this noble and martial mouse. So I mean, he must have just come up with something that some exact right. Well, because read the cheap, we think of PEEP, the way mice, PEEP, but the only person I can think of who does the same kind of thing is, of course, Lewis is very dear friend Tolkien. Yeah. Masterful, and it also has something to do with the idea that both of them had a very deep sense of language and etymology, the idea that Tolkien even invented a language that that's very interesting to me that words the roots of words were more important to them.

"Talked a lot about the issues out there of economy and investments and where the inflation is going and how the Biden administration basically has zero clue to what they're doing. And it's become very obvious, but it also affects everyday life, whether it's your gas process, your food process. But how about your investments? How about the things in life that actually can make you money, you know, set you up in your retirement accounts, do the things that you want to do so that you have some independence and financial stability. Well, I'm going to tell you right now, if you're going out talking and looking out around the world for the get great schemes, the folks who are telling you how to do it and frankly, if you look into their background, they got no money either. Not the way to do it. And so today, I've come across a guy that I've got to know a like a lot. I love his attitude. You're going to just fall for his passion. Because just great to watch. Patrick Aslan is someone who's going to talk about teaching you and what his company does is teaching you about investments and how to trade. And he also has an interesting background as well. So this is going to be one of the fun episodes of the dot Collins podcast. Sit back strap in because you're going around. You're going to want to take notes on this one. Patrick for having me. Thanks for being a part of the college podcast. Patrick explained to people now and I'm going to let you do it because it's your baby, you do it better than anybody. Explain to me what where you're at right now in your life. What you're doing and how you training and I'll give you the clicking. Do do several things here. First and foremost, I have a trading education company target trading academy where we teach people how to trade in the futures market. Not the stock market, not options that stuff is way too rigged way too dangerous and absolutely not in the retail consumers favor. It's a rigged game. I can we can have a 5 hour show and I can go through a piece by piece on how it's written. The futures market on the other hand is a zero sum game and it runs roughly 24 hours a day. So for example, let's say when New York closes at four 15 5 o'clock in the afternoon, you're stuck in a position. You can't get out. Well, when you're in the futures market, you can protect yourself roughly 24 hours and I teach people how to do this, how not to be in the market, how not to have a position, how not to have exposure, how to manage your risk, where to get in and where to get out. It's a real simple prospect.

I ask if Aslan and Michaela ever get exhausted, living in this constant flow of returned gadgets and price fluctuations and intense physical competition, this life where every Friday is Black Friday. And Aslan told me, it does make her feel exhausted. Almost every week. For me, I hate Wednesday. Anybody can tell you Wednesday, I'm like, do we really have to go to the liquidation tomorrow? We all sit there and I'm like, maybe we should just miss it this weekend, but then we're like, what if they put out something really good and we miss it? You feel like you're gonna miss something if you don't like the power. You know, you play nonstop and then that one time you don't play. That could have been your number. Yeah. So. Does it feel like an addiction kind of? It is. Definitely addiction. I gotta say until working on this story. I guess I didn't realize how much everyone was already taking advantage of these generous return policies. And as someone who doesn't really return anything ever I can't help but think am I the sucker here? Like the cost of returns are already baked into the prices I'm paying. So I almost feel like I should be returning more stuff? Yeah, I think I started this story maybe from the opposite part of the spectrum of you. I think I may be return a little bit more than the average bear. Yeah, like way more, dude, you are a shopaholic. You are surrounded right now with like outdoor gear that you probably are never going to use. I will admit to having, you know, impulse purchased an ultralight camping charcuterie board or whatever. Knowing that I could, if I ever came to my senses, just return it if it was still within a year. But over the course of reporting this story and actually going to this place and seeing these literal mountains of stuff that we're sending back all the time for almost no reason at all, a lot of which is just like eventually ending up in the landfill, it's going to make me feel different about this whole system we've set up. There are costs, you know? And the reason it feels so free and easy to return stuff is because we kind of hidden all of those costs. We've basically swept them under the rug. Which.

"This is one of our chief topics of physical milkshake. A love this topic with the raw bella in fact that with him to partner with rob bell. Yeah i was obsessed with this idea. And we were asking rob because he's a christian who famously kind of disbelieved in hell for lack of a better way of more complicated than that but that was so. He got essentially excommunicated raise. Who don't aren't familiar with his work. But he's still a christian and very devout So i was like so. You're going to jesus like you get hit by a bus rob l. What happens between getting hit by that bus and new meeting. Jesus talk me through took to our series specifically step by step. You're hit by a bus. You meet jesus like what we. I think we covered. Maybe like a second of real time. Yeah in into our anywhere close. But we didn't get to. Jesus we never got there but So what happens after we die So i'm writing a book right now. about spirituality. Which is this is quite an endeavor resident before it's really hard And i'm ta- i'm taking these. Some of the biggest topics in the universe like I have a chapter on death. And i have a chapter on god and have a chapter on religion right Just one chapter on god. it's killing it's killing them literally in that chapter right now and it's i've interviewed resume about a. It's killing me dude. It really is. But i'm coming up some good stuff but What happens after we die. I've i've talked about you know. My belief has a by faith. We believe that there's an analogy that the body has is not just the by faith as many spiritual traditions at the body is a cage and that our reality is the bird within the cage and the ages broken. The bird goes free. And that's not something to be mourned. The broken ness of the body or of the cage. It's to be celebrated the glorious journey of of the bird flying free of the material and physical limitations. But i will say that. I recently had a friend Pass away and this has been a big year of death for me. My father passed away about a year ago The co founder of our nonprofit in haiti died of cancer. And then one of my dear friends died of cancer. Sir thanks Recently and you know it's such a tricky topic but There are there good ways to die and there is not so good ways to die and in fact one of our episode. Sorry feel like really plugging the hell. I guess what we ask a lot of these questions to do that anyway. Live lean into. We had a death. Do la on the show and she was amazing. And that doesn't like birdseed. Exactly what you think it is. Yeah and it's she helps you transition towards death and that can be everything from like. Where do you keep all your facebook passwords and you know and also You know how do you want your ceremony to be. How do you wanna pass when you want your deathbed to look like yeah. That was the big question. So in having these discussions we talk a lot about death and you know this friend of mine who passed away like he didn't wanna look at duff and i think probably because he was mostly i think that what he was like a third you know wondering but mostly and so for him his journey towards this inevitability of death because he was given stage for stomach cancer was like. I'm gonna fight cancer to tooth and nail with every power in my being which is great which is important but but fueled by this terror Fueled by terror. And an kind of like and i would talk. I would be always the voice to talk to him and say david. Can we talk about this little bed. I would send him like a little writing about from the dalai lama or a buddhist taxed or something about something about death and like you know. Encourage him to get some therapy. How processed the emotions around but we live in the western culture in this abject terror of death we don't talk about dozens of a friend of mine was telling me that in Now in contemporary society like we In the victorians never talked about sex but talked about death all the time in victorian england. The road death parties and they would it be corpse viewings seances and that was just this thing and sex was like not talk now. We just talk about sex and everything is like reality. Tv shows are just literally like hey who these people are going to hook up pretty soon. We're just gonna have like shows where just like people meet and they'll come and we've axiomatic called porn porn is never checked it out and i'll i'll show you. Is there any of the internet. It's hard to find bomb. Okay thanks simulink but this this idea that we we are so afraid to talk about that and it is the one thing that we all have in common everyone on this podcast on everyone listening to this podcast end If we embrace it as a continuation of the mystery and yes it's scary We can have a very different relationship to death. Yeah yeah. I think it is less less about what happens when when we die. I mean anybody who you know answers. That question with any level of certitude is somebody. I'm probably not going to trust that but it is. It is about appreciation of death and how to bring death into our daily experience so that we can appreciate the richness of life you know because that is a a certitude and a certain duality. You know that we need to understand. Our culture is so whitewashed of any references to death whatsoever and despite our our our brains intellectually the mass denial happening in our country right. Now it's unbelievable hundred and fifty thousand people dead in our country in a in a year and four months and we're not talking about it and they're partying like it's nineteen ninety nine and there's no one is is looking at and so half of the population is going. I'm sorry to say this going. You know like what the fuck. And i think is a reflection of this very thing right because we're so afraid of death and we have so little i mean like you know. We don't connect with it in any way like the minute. Somebody dies there removed from our line of sight and we don't have language for how to talk about it in a healthy way beyond kind of like the traditional structures around funerals etc. And i think intellectually we all understand that we're going to die. But i think deep down we all think somehow we're going to figure out an end run around for us personally and that creates that like low-grade fear that we carry with us that forces us to even put it further out of our. I think the answer is ultramarathons. Here's here's what i would say. Yeah i mean. Obviously i have no idea what the hell happens after we die but to go back to kind of what i was saying earlier about the scientific fact that we are eternal right the things that make me what i am. I mean like the cells in my body the atoms you know the the the sort of most base structure of what has created this body. Eternal is forever those things. Don't just go away. They are they become something else right. Matter and energy is forever so that means my sells might atoms. They are forever. they don't just stop being. They just stopped being me. But i am more than just this physical body whether you believe in soul or not you believe in consciousness. A lot of you know philosophers theologians will say your consciousness is your soul. Stop thinking of them as different things that your ability to say i am me..

So the idea here was to tackle some of those big life questions themes that recur on both of our shows and have a little bit of fun doing it among the frivolous threads. Today polled are. What does it mean to be human how to be a good person. Why are humans prone to spirituality. How do we reconcile science. And rationality with faith and spirituality. Are we addicted to everything. What is the role. Consciousness plays in solving our biggest problems and sundry other related topics. Life is short so let us waste no more moments. Prepare to have your noodle bent. And enjoy my vulcan. Mind meld with raza. Oslon and rainn wilson super. Nice to meet you guys have been wanting to meet both of you for a long time and it means a lot that you would come out here and do this person with me I love the new podcast. It's super cool. We're gonna get into all of it. We're going to talk about the questions that really matter But first before we do that. I have to say rain. I loved you on the show. I'm obsessed with the show. Okay things david show. I love how you on box the painting the other day. Yeah and There's something about that. Guy is so magnetising his earnestness and his childlike nature has become friends. Oh we chouan. I became friends for mutual through mutual friends and met and those guys and then this guy was hosting this kind of retreat to this like men's weekend retreat in hawaii and then we hung out for a whole weekend in hawaii and went snorkeling and mooring and sharing. And you know he kind of cho- shares everything about his right honestly Which is so refreshing. Yeah you know well. He is to not be used to be the opposition jaded and cynical and withholding and too cool for school and the crazy guy who spent months in a japanese prison. And now he's on this journey of self discovery and it's really raw really appreciate what he does and Yeah he's become a good friend. And and plus admire his incredible heart and his artist credible his astonishment. Yeah i know. I hope they get a second season of that. Yeah yeah Similarly i watched the ordained recently roadrunner. Have you seen it yet. Not yet no. And david plays a big part in that especially near the end But in thinking about that documentary. And i suspect like the influence of that that anthony had on your own life and how you conceptualize believer and you know how you kind of pursued those stories through that show i. I think there seems to be a lot of similarities there. Yeah unfortunately i never got a chance to meet tony. But you know i mean. His specter is every part of cnn. At least it used to be and you know. This was a time in which i think. Cnn was trying to get into the entertainment business and they're not as much anymore. I think it's funny. Because like i i think about you know what they were doing during that decade insofar as you know marketing in the entertainment industry goes they had this very smart plan. Which was these Board gain like hosts you know they would get somebody with strong opinions and strong views and then they would let them pursue their expertise passions exactly but then there was this tension because were a news outfit and a aggressively you know center news out fund so there was this constant conflict between. Let's get people with big opinions and big personalities. And let's empower them to go out there and show our viewers the world but also they can't say anything newsworthy or political or controversial or anything. I mean bourdain had a lot to say but he was smart enough to say about british politics. He did his time. Thinks this guy would say you know about british politicians would definitely have gotten him fired but i think everybody else very clearly got the message and now they're just not getting different. Yeah they have stanley tucci going around eight elite sampling pasta. That's what i mean. It's much more milquetoasts. Milk toasts now. It's like the the only i think. The only person who has survived is canal bell. And i think partly he has. He learned very quickly that he should probably just keep his political opinions to himself. I mean you know. He'll he'll make certain comments here and there. But nothing yeah. Programming isn't gonna exist at a place like cnn. Harming there's but there are a multitude of places where you can do that kind of thing like netflix x. or maybe vice or something like that used to be. yeah. I think that's kind of that. Whole genre has pretty much gone by the wayside. Nowadays it's hard to find shows like that like the board dane kind of go around the world show again to cheat you know second italian-american eating pasta and italy it's there's nothing contra rashawn traverse or you know on edge about it at all Bourdain would like go to palestine you know. He wrote iran Pity and he would haiti yet. Exactly nobody doing that. Yeah he was in beirut when all kinds of craziness broke out there. It's funny because i could. So they could have done could have just put a wall like the way fox news pretends to do right. They put a wall between everything after eight pm and everything before eight pm more seven. Pm or whatever here. There's this opinion and everything before seven pm is news. Anything that happens after eight pm flight. Entertainment opinion right. It's just entertainment. And i don. Cnn tried to do but they just didn't go. I'm actually trying to get a show off the ground. We're actually in negotiations right now. I can't really name with. Who but a me going around the world It's called geography of bliss. And it's about what makes people happier world. So why are people year after year happier in finland than they are in romania. Sure you know. And it's not just you know income necessarily What is it culturally. What what habits or practices Make people culturally have a greater sense of wellbeing. No i'm sure you're familiar with dan butin or then the the blue zones guy. Oh yeah the blues show. You should have him on your show. Because he's all about that and wrote a whole book about.

"I'm just a profane person but on the seventh day you know. I go to church or mosque or temple. And that's where it's different or throughout the day. I'm one person. But then i stop and i pray and i'm a different person you know for me my experience as a spiritual being infuses every aspect of my life so that my entire life. My experience walking through the world is in and of itself a form of prayer and i think that allows me to be comfortable with my happiness right not constantly strive for more and more and more. That's so well said raza. I got so much out of just listening to that right now. Reminded me about how to prioritize the sacred while in the midst of the profane and realizing that there isn't again that dichotomy between the two but like here's an example. Eric like for me. Spirituality has to be kind of meat and potatoes. It's like where the rubber meets the road and like i went up the other day. We brought this new house and it's got a little bit of property on it and this beautiful vines covering our fence between us and our neighbor was dead in. I looked and it had been hacked. I mean like at the base like cut all the big thick vines. Anything on the neighbors sign had just been cut and not just like trimmed a little bit like cut like two inch. And i was like these are neighbors. I hadn't met yet because we we've only been in for a few months but we did have a run in with this neighbour once win. A workman of ours took some avocados from their tree and they yelled at them marched down to our house. So i was like. Oh are these neighbors. They resent us. And they don't like these vines urge encroaching on their property..

I still want to think is is just like you're almost there almost atheist. You're almost there sean. You're exactly this is what people are going to say to each other. But i mean some people are nowhere close to being there so that there is a difference the but then so for the hell want to sort of conclude. The conversation is again more practical issues. I mean as you said in which i agree you know. There's a lot of flexibility in the vocabulary that we use about these things god and religion etcetera religion in particular is far more than just a view of the ultimate danger reality. It's a set of communal practices. A set of ideas about right and wrong or whatever and and so the choice has to be made. When you're someone who is like you you know Not a an. Enter a believer in an anthropomorphic. Kind of god right guy up there on the throne with a beard giving us instructions. I mean you could choose to adopt these spiritual but not religious. Kind of label ride. You say i'm not muslim. I'm not religious. I believe in this transcendent realm. But you've made a choice to identify yourself as muslim. And so i wanna know why. That's a good choice in your point of view. So i have arguments that it's a bad choice for. Why don't you tell us why it's a good choice. I it's a really good point. It does go back to that thing where okay so. Let's say you're somebody who is spiritual Wants to experience. Transcendent strives to experience. Transcendence i would say that. There are two ways of expressing that emotion. One is the sort of monastic way of doing so. Where it's all deeply internalised You know it's all a part of how you understand the world in your place in it but it's personal is individualistic..

Pretty dramatically from what my understanding of the orthodox islamic position would be that there is a paradise. There's a hell with good people go and a place where people going. It depends on what you did and what you believed. And so you're you're that's not part of your personal version will look those are again human attempts to make sense of the incomprehensible right.

And i think most people most of your listeners would probably think that the concept of heaven and hell is a is an ancient concept that it's one that you would find in most Religions that it's an early form of religion the concept of heaven and hell is three thousand years old it was invented by a man named zora through stroke. Like he's the first person who said actually no there's a good death in a bad after death in some good people go to the good place and back people go to the bad place. That's three thousand years old again if you even if you take me even remotely seriously and you take my two hundred thousand year. You know explanation for the origins of the religious impulse. Three thousand years concept of heaven and hell. This is a very new idea. So yes it's true that they're orthodox conceptions of what happens in the afterlife but those orthodox conceptions are exact- exactly that their conceptions their their ideas for how to think about the afterlife. I will say that mindscape listeners actually do know better because we had a wonderful podcast episode with mark devilliers. Who wrote a biography of hell about all the different ways in which different cultures this idea of hell is fascinating and hilarious and so very new idea very okay..

"Thanks for having me sean. I'm glad to be here so let me start with like the most obvious question. The question that is pushing us here. you started a podcast. You begin to podcast. Why in the role would you do. That doesn't the world have enough podcasts. I want i want in on that. Sweet sweet podcast cash. Good it's all in all those you know what i'm saying. How we know what to do with early. Hundreds of dollars dozens of dollars. We'll come your way to this effort. You're putting it. I'm pretty sure. I just started a t. shirt store. You know that people have been asking me about that for a long time. When are gonna get like merchandise and so. I finally started that smart. We we haven't. We haven't gotten to the merchant on metaphysical milkshake. But this podcast kind of started my friend the actor rainn wilson and i have been friends for a while and people obviously no rain as dwight on on the office of this kind of iconic character betty created. But what people don't really know about him is that he is a deeply philosophical Very spiritual man. you know. He writes instincts a lot about you know the questions of the human condition who are we. Why are we here. what are we supposed to do. Is their free. Will what happens when we die. You know these are the things that kind of animated him into this. The kind of questions that have always animated me and so he would get together. You know sometimes have breakfast lunch and have these kind of deep conversations about life's big questions and you know one day we were having breakfast in talking about the meaning of life in and then I think one of us just kind of said you know we should maybe record this stuff and maybe people will want to hear it. And that's how metaphysical milkshake was born. We basically every week is one kind of life's big question you know and and we discuss it ourselves then. We usually bring on some kind of expert to to help us figure things out. Well and i think a lot of interestingly you know despite the fact that we dress it up in robes of rationality and trying to think through this fisted way a lot of times the attitude that people bring to kinds of questions is driven by their personality just as much as it is by facts and reason and logic and things like that and so there is a personality is kind of like. Let's just get along. Are we all saying the same thing. Let's just ask questions and there's another kind of personalities like here's the answer you should believe me so which side of this personality divide you come down on definitely closer to the. Here's the answer part. Okay out of those two. I mean the thing about rain is that he's such a sweet guy and he's exactly who you were talking about that we're all the same..

"One way to reduce poverty and to uplift communities Begin grassroots movements because when you educate a girl girls are connected to community and they obviously raised their babies with what they've learned literacy. Or what have you. But they also share it with their sisters and aunts and their cousins and and villages educated girl. You're educating one hundred people. So my wife and i started a nonprofit in haiti that we work on a a lot of when we spend a good. You know ten hours a week. Each just as board members on this nonprofit and we have about forty haitian employees and we're in about thirteen locations with educating eight hundred girls. We've taught hundreds of girls to read and given dozens of scholarships. How with this as kalita haiti. But i'm not trying to not trying to toot my own horn. I would just say that. Begin the process of activation with whatever speaks to you in your heart dear listener of the duncan trussell comedy family. Our and comedy no comedy back in. Nothing is funny about the comedy. Back into the duncan trussell dunkin comedy russell and his family our and find. What makes you come alive and go do that thing. You know What what inspires you. Start down the path however small it will grow. It will trickle will turn into a mighty river because there is something uniquely profound inhuman about our ability to give to one another and to serve one another it. It redoubles our happiness. It is a cure for depression. It cure for anxiety. It is a cure for disconnected. Nece it all lies in giving to others and this is a universal credo in every religious system and just start however small. You wanna do it and let it grow. Had i imagine. Yeah as a matter of fact. That's how rain and i met. We met Because we were both doing. An event to bring attention to the plight of the baha'i In iran of people know rain of a high and amazonian. So it's kind of a natural connection there. Rain is probably sick and tired of hearing me say this like at least once an episode. But i truly believe that you are what you do. We all have a sense of who we are. We all talk about. Maybe the values that we hold here the morals that we have values and morals are shit if they're not to put into practice in the world right. They're not really values or morals. Are they the right. If it's something that you believe in the privacy of your own mind then it's useless. It's monastic its master. Batory true spirituality is about works not about faith so my wife and i. My wife is a very sort of world renowned social entrepreneur. She created something called kiva which has lifted literally millions of people around the world out of poverty and she. And i always have this thing where it's like you know where we were from different religious backgrounds where you different culturally different ethnicity. But we share the exact same values and those values are in a sense our faith and our identity. You know the thing that binds us together and we both believe that you know as as a the book of james in the bible says my favorite verse faith without works is dead so it's not about like being an activist like i'm gonna be an activist. It's who i am. It's figure out who you are and what you believe. And then put those things out in the world otherwise it's not really who you are. God bless both you thank you so much for this wonderful our. You're just so excited that you decided to come on the show. Metaphysical milkshake folks. This is on. Youtube is it is it. But you haven't rss feed or rss on podcasts. Spotify and wherever fine podcasts. Or if you wanna watch us have the conversation which seems silly but some people like to do that. Then we're also on the tubes. Yeah you can find our youtube channel. Metaphysical milkshake if again. For some reason. You want to watch us talk. Which i guess people do. I like watching it. We like watching you. We love you ray of you we love you love you. How are you guys are the best i do love you. Thank you so much for coming on the show..

"It did make the reason that we turn got into. A person is that we can have a relationship with god. You know go away we can. We can actually know god because he's a person he's just like us. God is just like us. Yeah but what the pro that process created. I think a more as i say more muddled relationship with god but it also i think created a more mature relationship for me with god. So i'm in a kind of a you know up spannis and little gullible here. I'm kind of in a transitional moment here my my relationship to the divine. It's it's shifted over the last few years. I mean i'm seeing on yourself there. It seems like you have a was that man i got. I got gannett. Show over here. I got up there somewhere around here shaking. I can't remember the lion the lion. That is that the lion that krishna turned into or vishnu turned into no. That's that's that's from thai buddhism scar from lion king. Okay it is well that was based on the lion. King is just a big buddhist metaphor. What about you wearing and obviously not too weird as my favorite question. Their favorite age i. I'm writing a book right now. In god features quite prominently in it. I'm writing a book on spirituality. Which is very weird for former sitcom actor but I really relate to so much what reser said. Because more and more as i mature i try and separate god in every way shape and form as far away from the idea of an old white man on a cloud looking down and granting us a good parking space you know my my mom as i got back to know my mom. She'll be like okay. Pray for good parking space. Everyone say oh god. Give me a good parking space right by the theater. And in an an. I really don't think that that's how god works. So as i Let me back a little bit. And say i tried being an atheist. I really did. I gave it my best shot. I grew up a member. Of the baha'i faith i left the baha'i faith when i was about nineteen or twenty moved to new york city to become an actor and i did a hard turn against anything. Having to do with spirituality soft and for weak people and people that needed to believe in god or people that needed a a comfort blanket and they needed a sky daddy that give them hugs and it was for grandmothers. Was you know it had nothing to do with me. I was cutting edge artists. I wanted to be lou reed and And i tried it really hard. And then i was miserable number one. It wasn't working and also i just kept you know. He resumes trying to cart earlier. Like i kept trying to wrap my mind around this infinitely large and infinitely beautiful universe that we live in and and that it all came together randomly through molecules bumping into each other. And i couldn't. I couldn't do it. I couldn't i couldn't be in the world without there being some kind of like greater force meaning purpose above know within us but a and outside of us and above us and beyond us in in without without any limitation of time or space. and so. but what i'm trying to do more and more is said to is. Think of god as love. Think of as beauty you know. Think of god. As truth. That god i imagine this. Whatever this forces this creative force that his providential toward all of its creation human and otherwise that this this force wants something from us and it gives us purpose a and not purpose less ness so but do that. God is much closer to. Let's say beauty than god is to an entity who has like a a will in a brain like. I'm going to make these people suffer from this hurricane. And i'm gonna make these people have a good crop harvest this year but anything remotely like that. What about you can right. Yeah you go. oh yeah i just. I love balked yoga. I love like. And i. I think the both of you are saying like the most brilliant weight at one of the most brilliant connect with with with god but i just i just out of a kind of like i don't know i love thinking of god as a as a person though a lot of times i don't and i pray for anything but i try not to do the parking spot thing you know i like. I don't remember who the thomas merton maybe said. The the the only prayer is that. I will be done like the the math behind. That's real good real good. If the if we're talking about some pre genitive super intelligence what are you gonna tell it what to do. You know you're going to tell us a super consciousness how to behave in the way you're telling it today is like shit like parking spaces. You know that being said. I try to understand it. I like bhakti yoga. I like the stories of krishna. I'm a new dad. Being around my kids help me understand. Like the ideas of god sometimes appears to you as your child not literally but you know this idea of like that's pure love so i- zinger out every once in a while just feel like fuck all that and go into like deep buddhist personalism deep just like doesn't like i don't even know if i'm thing much less there being anything else so i don't know but i do yeah. I tried to being eighties when i was much much much younger and it didn't work. I love praying just feels good even if it is a comfort blanket fuck it. We're being harassed by time. What are we supposed to be like. Walk around flexing. We had something know. We had a really interesting for our podcast. Metaphysical milkshake some of the things we do. Is we hear from listeners and viewers like you and people will call in and leave their questions of their comments on whatever topic and we were talking with the great pete holmes so you must know and and vibe with yeah You cut from the same cloth the cloth and this This guy was saying well. I'm an atheist. And i think that people make up god you know to give themselves comfort. But then he said this viewer said but that's okay because we all need to find meaning in this world we're going around the sun sixty seventy eighty ninety times. Then that's it. And whatever gives us the most kind of meaning connection hope..

"Resident. What do you have any just. Because i know offense rain. I think you're the most scholarly of everyone here right now. Do you have any sense of the like the history of that has. It's always been the case that this was a driving force for people like in the one thousand nine hundred and the fourteen hundreds where people like. I wanna be famous. No desire to be put on a pedestal to have people look up to you to admire the things that you do. Admire you for who you are. I mean that's that's part of the human condition that goes back forever. I just think what has changed now. Is that the pedestal is so low and so easily accessible. Right i mean. Do you have a new channel. Are you willing to shove something in your nose. Then all right that's go. That's it sharpshooter noodles once a week or two and you could achieve socrates level notoriety. Yeah well okay. So i guess this brings me to like a a question that ever since i read zella. I wanted to ask you as a and rain. I'd love to know to. Where are you all at now with god. The conceptualization of god the idea of the divine and is the is like the fame thing and the furious desire for that just a replacement for kind of increasingly diluted. I don't wanna say like we've lost our spirituality but definitely like i mean the people's perception conceptualization of god now compared to many different phases of human history is so different. There's nothing feeding people in the way for better for worse that he used to feed people. So where are y'all at with that. do yeah. i pray rain. Praise pretty less formerly than i think i used to be my views on god have both muddied end matured at the same time. You know which i think is supposed to be the way. It's that's how it's supposed to be right. You grow up you get more mature. Your your mind expands. You realize you don't know what you thought you know and you start to doubt things that that's supposed to be what happens to you as you get older and smarter. The i a couple of years ago wrote this book called god And i had originally intended the book to just be kind of a straight up history of of god. The origins were what are the concept of god arise. How did it evolve. You know where. Where will it go in the future. That's how i pitched the book to the publisher anyway. But then i started working on the early stuff. Like where did this concept of god arise in the more. I began to study at the more. This kind of shocking revelation occurred to me which is that Human beings have this involuntary impulse. We all do it. Whether you believe in god or not in which we construct our conception of god as essentially a divine mirror of ourselves we construct god to have our politics. Our emotions are attributes. Mom likes our dislikes. In fact we construct god to have our face. There was an amazing study. Done in two thousand and twelve. This is something. That's that psychologists cognitive theories religion of known for a long time. It's this it's just kind of how our brain works and that's why you can go back hundreds of thousands of years and look at the earliest conceptualization of god and even a the very start of all of this. God is anthropomorphized. God has arms and legs and ahead you know and and god likes the things we like and hates the things we hate. he has. Our attributes are virtues and our and our vices but a group of scientists at the university of north carolina chapel hill decided to actually put this theory to the test and they got five hundred in this case. There were five hundred protestant christians and they asked him a very simple question which is what does god look like. And they showed him a series of kind of bland images of human beings and they were supposed to kind of you know whatever more plus more more minus more plus more minus And then doing so. They were able to create a composite for each person of what god looks like. And this is the study where god for. Everybody look like everyone. It really shook a twenty twelve like you know not not the twenty twenty one. Well no two thousand twelve was when steve left the show. The office was in decline. So mid Rain but of course what they discovered is darker skinned. People created a darker skin. God lighter skinned people created a lighter skinned guy. Women created a more feminine. God male men created more mail got but then it got really weird. Republicans self-described republicans created a much more muscular masculine god when liberals and progressives created a far more feminine and seat god We create a divine being. Who is just us but without kind of human limitations right so that ended up being what the book was about. It wasn't at all what i thought the book was going to be about. But that's what it was about and winner was finished. I just i really had to kind of think to myself. How have i been thinking about. God been approaching. God have i been praying to god. I've been praying to god as though god is just some kind of divine version of me. You know that even gives a fuck about the things that i that i care about. And i went through this process. Where i really had to consciously strip my view of god of all human elements and kind of return to a more primal conception of the divine as just pure creative force.

"Okay let's okay now. I got a really weird question for you. Forgive me for it in advance. This is a very weird original deepfake question. The fake washer wasn't even weird. It was kind of a. But i think that's kind of a nice starter question but this is something. I wonder about rain. your your world. Famous comedian raza world-famous intellectual. Your your whole planet knows about you. They know you are. You're experiencing a such a like whenever you just contemplate. How many people are on the planet. And then just general like the way that wealth is spread around the planet you know and then you not just wealth power not power but all the things that go along with it. Do you ever get a kind of vertigo or a sense of like. How did this happen to me. The out of all the people on the planet. I ended up being one of the mouth pieces. And does it creep. You out do you ever get. I always feel like i'm mispronouncing. You're saying it wrong. Please correct me raza solipsism like do you ever get the sense that holy shit the whole thing. Just some kind of simulation a subjective dream of having because how could it end up. The i'm one of the people are. Are you asking whether this is all a simulation and i know asking if am truman. Do you ever get freaked out all the time. I mean yes i am. I solid cystic. Absolutely i am solid cystic after constantly. Remind myself that you know. The universe isn't there as a simulation in order to keep me occupied and i am frankly. There's no way that i could prove that. That's not the case right right. The only thing that i will say a is that i my my solace comes from the fact that i assume everybody else thinks exactly the same thing that i in that that inev- itself there's this sort of so if you're if you're a dicara fan You know this. To be true. Rene descartes very famously set out to prove philosophically proved the existence of god. And what he did was he began. Cartesian this kind of yes. Yes and he began with this whole thought process where he was like. Okay so i need to. Before i can get to god like that's that's you know down the line. Let's start with what. What do i know right. So what do what what am i. Absolutely certain of. And the what. He said very famously was well. The only thing. That i'm certain of is that but there's a can't sort of and the reason that i know that i'm real real is Kogi to- arrigo soom right. I am thinking. Therefore i am and the fact that i am in the process of thinking crews my existence and then of course famous lead. He got he got stuck right there because then he realized a weight so i i don't know that ramos thinking rain tells me he's thinking but how can i know that i think he's thank you. I don't know. I think he's thinking but as far as i know he could just be a reflection. This five hundred years ago man. So he's like. As far as i know he could just be a reflection. I could be dreaming in fact that was his argument. Like sometimes i dream feels real. It feels like rain is there. He's naked except for a rubber ducky. And until i wake up. I don't know that it's not real so this could be a dream And he never even got to the god part all he ended up proving was that here. Nothing else exists but him. I read that my freshman year in college. And i was like shit. I couldn't get past it. Select philosophically i just walked around for awhile. Basically just telling people yeah. I'm pretty sure that when i leave this room all of you cease to exist. It didn't make me very popular. But what i'm trying to say. Is i know what you're saying. I get the question. I have struggled with it myself. And i've learned to essentially ignore it because they're logically philosophically de logically re rationally. I can't get past the fact that i am. The only thing that exists in the universe and he behaves accordingly the ring. And the i will say i don't i don't understand your question but i'm gonna say duncan 'cause i love you duncan and i wanna say that you were one of the weirdest things in the entire universe is fame. It's so frigging weird. 'cause i was an actor for a long time before i became famous i i graduated from acting school in one thousand nine hundred eighty nine and i didn't become quote like famous like recognizable to like two thousand five so it was like sixteen years of acting and a bust in my heart and trying to get auditions and get jobs and trying to pay off my student loans and then all of a sudden other sudden people are like coming up. Hey you're the guy oh are you. Oh you're the i i know and now it's to the point it's just it's kind of crazy. 'cause people walk to you. Jaws agape eyes wide like moths to the flame because they've seen me on their net flicks for a billion minutes a year. It's very it's really really weird so it does create in me of this very strange sensation of what what world am i in. What reality is real. Is this real a people i can. I have picture of you and the amount of people who say i love you and it's like you don't love me you don't know me you've never smelled me. How can you love me. I've smelled you. I love you thank you. Thank you for that. But it's so true. You you love my work as an actor when i transform into a character named dwight troot thank good good for you. I will say people. I have noticed that people have a very difficult time. Really differentiating between dwight troot on raven dunkin just now as well. I don't mean it's wait a.

"But i have to ask both of you. Maybe you are aware of some new messaging coming out but it feels like the from a lot of the big mouthpieces that are trying to alert people of how fucked things are Is such an almost nihilistic sort of depiction of things that i feel like it's making people it's having the opposite effect. It's when you start hearing like well we've already gone past the point of no return which i've seen in a lot of different stories lately. There's it's it's all right it's done then. I think what ends up happening. Is people feel helpless. Non inspired can you think of some like better messaging on top of praying for some incredible new technology that pulls carbon out of the air is it now. Is it time for like some hyper manipulative. Mk k. ultra level weird campaign. That like somehow detaches people from what you were talking about rain. The sort of bizarre fixation on all the power and aggression aggression and buying owning. Well i think i think messaging is really important and you know every scientist you talked to well not every scientist the majority of scientists that you talked to on this issue are like we can. We can do it. We can stop the very very worst from happening if we act right now so i think at least around climate. The message needs to be like. Hey guys let's put on a show. Your dad's got a barn. We can get some costumes and you know. I'm pretty good at you know playing a grandmother. Let's let's make show and instead of let's put on a show it's like. Hey let's save the planet. Let's vote for people that believe in climate change. Let's put in a legislation that and courage is you know You know reduced emissions of co two and methane everywhere and get people on board in a positive way because you're right if if the messaging is like were faulk than it's like our right okay so so be it I just read recently. This blew my mind. They're like i didn't even they were doing this in fishing. They're doing this kind of trawling. Deep sea trawling where like thousands ten thousand feet below sea level. They're trawling the bottom of the ocean to get seafood for our seafood. Consumption and that trawling which brings up gases and methane from the bottom of the ocean to the top of the ocean is responsible for more co two and heat trapping gases emissions than all of airplane transportation. So people like go. You flew on the airplanes like well. These ships are so there's stuff we can do. We control the bottom of the because humanity is not united. Because we're not working together because we're not. We haven't found a way to use a tool like the united nations. We can't just we as a species. Go hey guys. let's stop the trawling. Hey check it out. Look at the science around the trawling. Let's get seafood and other ways. Okay cool moratorium. No more trawling bom but we're just too. We're not we're not there yet so we we need to work on all of these things. It's not an either or but we need to work on kind of shifting people's perspectives Spiritually and philosophically as well as like hard legislation. There's something interfering with your happiness that might be preventing you from achieving your goals for example. Maybe you made it through a global pandemic in are kind of freaking out because it seems like everybody's just ignoring the fact the entire planets went through global pandemic and you're thinking to yourself fucking serious like really this is you're gonna reactors or just get back to work like that that happened. You can imagine nothing happening you kidding. I moved across the country. Not freaking kid..

"Beard is gray. People who are kind of disappointed to look at me. So i come to think the deep make rain circa two thousand fourteen kind of want win. The office was ending. People would be like. Oh yeah. That's when he was white and that's when we that's when we liked him and now he's old and talking on podcasts. All the time and he and he's got really weird political views because he ever made the deepfake. Better fucking asshole you know. That's the problem is people are like. Wow this younger rain. Is i think i think definitely cue in on it. All seriousness in people. Probably know what i'm talking about when i'm talking about the deepfake tom cruise. I mean that was creepy right. Was anybody else creep. Like there's no way. I would have been able to tell the difference except that it looked like tom cruise from twenty five years ago. Which actually looks exactly like tom cruise today. We talk with point. It is tom. Cruise himself a deepfake. Tom cruise that that could possibly be could be man. I've i've blown by duncan seriousness. I have. I don't have room in my mind to worry about deepfakes. There's so many things for me to worry about. That's like an. I'm glad it's higher on your list of priorities but for me personally like it's one hundred and ten degrees in the arctic circle right now. I can't be thinking about deep politicians and fabricated. Sex tapes with with celeb- unlikely celebrities. Like dr ruth and a german shepherd that is. That's in our you know we could only you know this is i know i know i clearly. Climate change is like the number one number one if we're going to deal. It's like the opposite of winter. Winter isn't coming anymore. At least in the places you'd want it to come but not to like beated a deepfake horse here but if you think about it the the problem is the amount of human harmony between countries that has to happen if there's even the slightest chance of doing something about this impending catastrophe it depends on having like completely non jammed signals of communicate. You're almost right. And that duncan actually and there is enormous amount of statistics to backup say but in the entire planet there is really one Sort of unified political entity on earth that refuses to even acknowledge Global warming and climate change as a as a real problem. And that's the american republican party. There is no version of this. The right wing in europe. The insane crazy zena phobic. Let's kill all muslims. Right wing in europe says there's climate change of course global warming. What kind of an idiot wouldn't even see that. There is only one political party that is in the way of profound global change. And it's the american republican party and that's it so we don't have to get the rest of the world on the same page. We have the rest of the world on the same page right. The paris primary cl climate accord's is a great example. We brought china and russia into the paris. Climate accord's we had them make promises for profound caps on their climate activity. There's one party that put an end to that. And that's the republic. So i'm gonna. I'm gonna i'm gonna. I'm gonna widen the view first of all residents wrong because the right-wing party in australia is actually mirrors the american republican party. But that's that's another that's another issue. They still burn coal like it's coming up the yin yang and they refused to mark the great barrier reef as a as a as a protected natural disaster area but dunkin raza. I think what you're getting at. And i didn't even let you finish your question. You see how bad ass we are bad ass. That's what they do. That's what rogan does. Screw brand is soon before the we have a couple episodes on climate. Change that we've done and number number of of the largest kind of issues facing humanity right now and i will say that when you start to. I've done a good amount of work on climate change on the board of a non of a climate nonprofit. It's called camp and it's We we speak science to power. It's called and it's all about getting the science about what's happening in the arctic out into the hands of of everyone common people of politicians of businesses. Because they need to understand that what's happening in. The arctic doesn't stay in the arctic. That what happens in the arctic greatly affects. What's going to be happening in the rest of the hemispheres and we see this kind of interactivities. So and it's it's much more extreme in the arctic than it is in other places on the glow. But i will say that as you dig in to. Let's just take climate change like you mentioned race relations and upcoming impending wars and whatnot. The the kind of work that will need to be done in order to solve climate change is much greater than reducing co two and methane. It is a complete new way of being in harmony with the planet and it's it involves cooperation an involves consultation. as opposed to competitiveness. it involves I wouldn't say eliminating capitalism but maybe eliminating capitalism as we know it certainly commercialism and It has our relationship to buying stuff and owning stuff and the ease with which we order stuff at the press of a button with amazon. This is it goes so deep because our old way of doing things which is competition contest aggression. One upsmanship is simply. It's tapping out. It's not working anymore and you can throw race into that and it's actually part of that same process will in fact i'll even add one more thing to it. Ranges said Based on an upcoming episode metaphysical milkshake where we interview the great Environmental reporter Lisbeth colbert she wrote the sixth extinction In a number of other books in his new book out now in which essentially the argument that she's making is it's conserving is not enough right that that climate change has gotten so far along now that the only way to truly reversed the damage is by engineering climate by actually doing the. Doing what environmentalists have been telling us to stop doing for generations which is stop trying to manipulate the climate to our advantage and her argument is that you know. The new environmentalism at this point has to have its toolbox of ways of responding to the problem of climate change the ability to use science and technology to actually reverse the damage that we have done in perhaps maybe even take some fairly radical steps to do so radical steps. You mean like weather. Control the idea of putting particulates in the air to cool the planet down that kind of stuff. Yeah that is a very controversial point. Many environmentalists seem to be radically opposed to fucking around with the planet. And in that way. But i have to ask both of you. Maybe you are aware of some new messaging coming out but it feels like the from.
