"And so we worry a lot about kids who are overly programmed and with technology over the stimulated and. They never really have to have downtime. Because is makes is so the present and so pervasive in so fast. Right that we're we're constantly looking for that stimulation. We feel that the the kind of antidote to that is is not just a painting or playing golf. It's it's radical downtime so the default most work engages when we're not actively doing something else and so we look for this in things like daydreaming in mind wandering in walking in the woods. What did the colts forest bathing japanese Yoku when we don't have with us right and we go off and within five minutes of walking in nature start to kind of think about stuff ourselves and and we're really reflecting on things in a way that's not rumination of gar playing things over and over and over. We also get this meditation specifically particularly. I would say a transcendental meditation bills minna practicians about forty six years. I've been doing this. For about ten years in transcendental meditation creates his real coherence within the brain. Actually wanna bill's favorite stories. They taught team to a group of middle school kids who all had adhd and then afterwards they asked him about it you know kind of what were the effects and they all tend to say things like i can. Focus better unite. I can sleep better and this one kid who was wildly impulsive said before i learned. Tm walking down the hall and someone bumped into me. Turn around and hit a now. That i've been doing. Tm if some bumps me. i'll stop and think should him or not and for anyone who's got a kid who's really impulsive to have any gap between the stimulus and response is really a big thing. But this whole default mode network is so valuable for developing empathy incoherent sensitive itself. We just think we really want to structurally try. Put into kids lives times when they're not doing anything. What's the practical application of that. I'm thinking of the mom of the five year old listening right. Now who's like transcendental. Meditation seems like a completely different world than where. I'm at right now with my dishwasher. So it's really good point. Unstructured play you know for for little guys you know. There's no kid under five. Needs anything with technology. They don't win. It's creative play when it's imaginative play when it's dressed up when his plane with blocks kids are interacting with physical things. But they're in their own heads making these wonderful make believe worlds whereas opposed to technology makes it highly highly directed and so we really just think that with little kids. We wanna have as much time to play without parents or teachers or tutors or coaches or whatever.

"It's not coming from this camp is I've been around this camp, all day, every day since we Bill Minna boerum last year. This camp has not spoken about it. We've been very intimate settings. We have not spoken about it, like it has to be coming from somebody else trying to sabotage trying to say, this is what we want. Or maybe this is what we don't want somebody else's playing that game but it's not coming from that. And really, it's a product of a lot of things. Right. You look at LeBron James everyone saying he's going to Lakers, he's going to the Lakers. They talked about Philly all these other landing spots, and what happened he ended up going to the Lakers. Right. So that's where it kinda even it had nothing to do with Kevin Durant. It feeds that whole fire of what he's going to do. And so then let's take climate at his word and suggests that he doesn't know what he's going to do yet. That would also suggest that the next couple of weeks. Could play a big his decision. Yes, we had a stat earlier this morning. The warriors of the first team in NBA history to sweep a best of seven series without their leading score. So with the Golden State Warriors, should go on to win this championship without K. D. How do you think that influences, if he doesn't come back and play in the finals? How does it influence his decision? I can't tell you. I don't know what his mindset is going to be at that particular doesn't it feel it, but what I would further the narrative that they didn't need him in the first place. We're similar to jump the law, of course. And he is on Twitter, arguing with people who have a hundred and fifty dollars. We are here all day long. If you listen to extremely competitive people, of course, that's going to play somewhat of a factor into his mindset. But that can also go the other way to say, you know, maybe I want to be part something, the greatest of all time. I don't. I don't really care what people have to say. We're maybe he takes the other way, such. I want my own. I can't tell you exactly what that's going to be yet greenie because all these little things factor into it. That's why even when I brought the other day about Vance MVP. I understand what the fans say all time. But if you're a person that's sitting back and now you have time to listen to that, like all these little things go into your decision and my thing, and I said it earlier before you got here, because you relate is that we, if we want the warriors to break up. Root for the warriors to win because you have an impact, it will have, and it'll be it'll be something else that he takes a look at like do these guys need me and they are actively and you've watched every interview you've watched every game. They are actively campaigning for Kevin Durant, talking about how much they need how much they miss them, and how much they import that really stars in the lower position of leverage that say this because if he doesn't play and if they win that speaks four so if he doesn't play in a lose then that sport. So. And. He's going to try to come back and it doesn't work out. That doesn't need to leverage, right? This all well and good. All right. We have more perspective in that, again from the other side of the room. Laura ticket from there. So we know that swag, who has been on this train of Katie needs his own team. He needs his own franchise to reinvent. So we'll get to that in a second. My thought here Tibbs, is that look katie's going to wait and see what some other people do too. If he's going to go to with the clippers, he's going to wait and see if he's going to have these conversations to figure out..
