"dow teaching" Discussed on The Jordan B. Peterson Podcast

"Your damn hands on. Hello, Dr Peterson. So a lot of your work, a lot of your lectures. Recommend! The audience tackle life with a lot of attention and intention. And you know in. My personal gateway drug to philosophy has been more eastern philosophy. and. Like the BUG GITA and the work of Alan Watts and Towel Talibanism. And what I noticed. I may be wrong, but this is a common theme in Eastern Philosophy. which is more passive, Non Action Don't make as many plants I. I wonder how you reconcile that in how you are reconciling that because you mentioned earlier in previous lectures that you've read the Telltale Ching. How do you reconcile those two different views? Well, I think I that. The Dow Teijin particular isn't about inaction. It's about minimal proper action. and. It's also about minimal proper action. After a tremendous amount of sacrifice, right so the sage that speaking fourth in the Dow. Tate Ching has already let go of almost everything that he needs to let go of. And a tremendous amount of what you're reading in the eastern philosophies is predicated I. think at least in part on the idea of sacrifice. There's lots of things that you're grabbing onto the monkey. You know with the jar that's actually causing your misery, and so sometimes letting go is the right way of moving ahead, but to me that ties into this idea of sacrifice. So now whether there's more than that whether there's more intentional in western philosophy unless. In eastern philosophy I'm not exactly sure. One way of mediating between those two was was formulated at least in part by Carl Young. He pointed out that. The archetypal figure for the West died at thirty two. And so to some degree that outgoing. extroverted. Let's say nature of the West is. A consequence of Its youthfulness in some sense, it's useful ethos. And that the East? Buddha died at fairly ripe old age, and even in the Hindu practices for remember correctly. Many Hindu temples. There's a lot of erotic sculptures. Ninety s something like can't get past the dam erotic sculptures. It's not time to go into the temple. But it's more than that. It might also be that if you're young. It's time to get past the erotic sculptures. So maybe maybe there's a moving forward into life in youth. And a letting, go in. In the latter part of life and that's. The. Way of mediating between those traditions. I think there are tightly aligned. With regards to the importance of sacrifice. It frequently is the case that it's your desire mile. Let's say your desire. That's causing your suffering right, and so there's. An emphasis in Buddhism even more than Taoism I would say on letting go. Letting go of what's making you miserable? and. But you remember the thing about Buddha is that he got enlightened under the Bo tree right he basically. Stepped into the city of God, he stepped into Nirvana He could have stayed there. But he chose to combat because he decided that he had responsibility. To rectify suffering in the rest of the world that it was not sufficient for him to be enlightened well, everything else was left. In a state of insufficiency and suffering, and so I wouldn't call that inaction. It's a I've I've. Made the mistake myself. It's inaction versus non action. I actually had to look up. There good. That's that's. To Re the Dow Teijin does a very good job of distinguishing between those two because. Non Action is the minimum necessary action to keep the balance between order and chaos. Proper right that the end in the end and the Dow teaching is very very emphatic about this you detach. And you watch. And when it's time to intervene, you intervene minimally without a lot of arrogant self propagandize ation. And you cap, and if you do that property, you hardly have to do at all, and it says if you're doing nothing and and. There's there's great wisdom in that book I really liked the Dow teaching it's. It's a remarkable document and I've seen managers who were like that. Who are really good at running their company? WHO DID NOTHING? But what they did, but First of all they set up people to replace them. Because their their idea was well. If I'm a really good manager, then this place could run without me. There was a real humility in that, and then they just kind of wandered around the place. Talking to people and if there is a bit of a problem than they, just you know, turn to knob tenth of. A degree and the place ran smoothly, and it was as if they were doing nothing and what they were doing was detaching. So? They weren't being buried by their current concerns. They were watching to see what was going on, and then they were minimally. Interactive and That worked like a charm, so I think that the. I don't like the idea that all religious traditions are the same because that just makes them into like a gray mass, but I don't see that there's any. Difference there that can't be bridged. I think as you look into the details. The bridges become more clear. Or.

"They'd set up all over the country. People would just get into sound boats until stories and. It'd be like going to school. At the time listening to NPR among other things, and as I drive to listen to it and I would just be like sobbing. Because people were talking about. One Guy had visited his wife's grave. You know for like ten years or something like that. Passing every day she would go to her grave, and he was just like talking about like for me like such an intense love. that it was still kind of expressed where they talked about like have someone at pastor. What someone meant to them in their life? And of course you know when they're telling that story, the words are just a carrier for the feeling. They're giving right, so they're going to their deepest feelings. Broadcasting it and I'm like I'm just losing my stuff. But but listening is very much. This is a superpower even when we're talking about in business in negotiations. Whenever each side of reflects back with the other one is saying you know it's not saying like I agreed to, or whatever is just saying. This is what I understand that you're saying. This is what you want and this is so whenever they do that. The both sides walkaway more satisfied I. mean whenever you can create that. Win winning. Just you realize like you. Whenever you're able to listen to somebody, you can get things you know what I mean. Create can find out what they want what you want. You know new I negotiated a lot in my business and I worked with very large companies, and I got them to do things that nobody art industry had been able to do and people always ask me like. How do you do this? And eventually I figured it out. I said I understand their limitations. A it wasn't. It was more important for me to. Stand what they couldn't do what they could do. Because if you knew what they couldn't do, you could work around that to find an equitable solution for everybody. Where they needed you bouncing where they needed you, my grandfather had a barnes space miniature, little sign with his bar, and it was a bear cartoon holding a suitcase said diplomacy is telling somebody to go to hell and having him look forward to the looking. But to your point, it's. Whether, you're talking about sunset in the art of war whether you talk about. The Dow teaching in the data, Ching they talk about doing others is powerful, but knowing yourself is wisdom..

"Doubt `aging as a mysterious species of art. Not only there's no consensus when exactly it was written but the existence of its author remains dispute it. Nevertheless one thing is certain. The profundity of this work has left. Its mark on humanity to does day not to mention that the dowding is the most translated work in world literature after the Bible the essence of Taoist philosophy is living in harmony with the Dow also called the way. So what is the Dow neces- question weekend re answer? And it's futile to try. Our understanding of the Dow only goes as far as the limitations over a perception. What the Dow really is and what it looks feels smells or sounds like remains a mystery. Moreover the doubted we speak Gulf isn't the real dow according to louder hence the famous opening of the doubt. `aging goes like this. The Dow that's can be described is not the eternal Tao the name can be spoken is not the eternal name and quote so what knowledge is available about the Dow. Well the Dow I emphasize over and over again that the true Dow is an all encompassing force that is beyond our comprehension and cannot be perceived by the senses and even though we can never grasp the true doubt the goal is to live in agreement with it which is strikingly similar to the STOIC approach to nature. So how do we live in harmony with the way? Taoist literature doesn't really give one practical method to achieve this. However we can find many clues that point to achieving stillness over mind curbing census being humble and the cessation of striving in order to open ourselves up to the workings of the universe. This stillness of mind doesn't necessarily mean that we sit down somewhere with our eyes closed the Taoists that stillness of mind can be combined with action and we are completely in the present moment. Our actions will go effortlessly without friction and accompanied by a razor sharp focus so much so that it's almost ecstatic in his biography. Retired professional basketball player. Bill Russell writes it was almost as if we were playing in. Slow motion during those spells. I would almost sense out necks. Play would develop and where the next shot would be taken and quote. The work zone contains a story about a cook named Ting who engages in his work while in a state of flow. This grasped the attention of Lord when we who was amazed about how elegantly the cook cut up oxygen when he commented him on his skill Gook Ting lay down knife and replied what care about is the way which goes beyond skill when a first began cutting oxen. All I could see was the ox itself after three years. I no longer Saudi whole ox. And now now I go edit by spirit and don't look with my eyes. Perception and understanding have come to stop and spirit moves where at once. I go along with a natural makeup. Strike the big hollows guide the knife through the big openings and following things as they are so never touch the smallest ligament or tendon. Much less a main joint and quote an essential. Part of the story is the condition of the knife that could uses. He stated. That good cooks changed our knifes every year because they cut and mediocre kooks changed their knives every month because they heck Cupertino however was using the same knife for nineteen years because he used it with skill and subtlety. This story connects to another essential teaching of Taoism which is the power of gentleness by forcing and striving we might get the job done but at the same time we spent much more energy than necessary and possibly suffer from collateral damage on the other. Hand someone in a state of flow approaches a task intelligently knowing when to act and what not to find a balance between action and non action. It's a matter of not too hot not too cold. It's the golden path between anxiety and boredom. The idea behind non-action goes against the western ideal of forcing and working harder and harder to get results. We are encouraged to be ambitious to take control. And to strive meanwhile many people suffer from depression anxiety disorders and sleep disorders. Are we burning ourselves out? We look down on Pacific and often mistaken for laziness but these are different things when we look at nature. Doing nothing makes way more sense than we tend to think. Results do not equal the amount of energy we spent results are a consequence of a series of actions. The funny thing about this. Is that many of these actions? Come naturally and a task doesn't need more human intervention than necessary to steer it into the right direction. Isn't it so that many problems solve themselves? Taoism comparison live to a river. The river already has a course or several courses and the ones we find ourselves in death river. We can swim against the current we can hold onto a branch or weaken. Let go and go along with the Stream. Most of our lives. We swim against the current. And we don't even realize it. Our mind believes that it can shoot control the environment in order to survive which is kind of egocentric because the vast majority of processes within as well as outside ourselves are not in control. I mean let's face it. We don't control our bodily processes like digestion blood flow or the healing of wounds. We don't control other people. We don't control the future. We don't even control who we fall in love with and what people we find attractive everything outside our own faculties just goes into some direction sometimes forced by intelligence but mostly in a natural course when we flow along with the current. We align ourselves with this natural course. This is the bath. Of least it gives nature a chance to unfold without US resisting it. So the Dow was the way is rather navigating through the river instead of trying to control it. Something that will never work another aspect of the river. That characterizes Taoism is the water itself d correct heuristic of water are softness and humidity that basically symbolized Taoist virtue. Here's a quote from the Dow Teaching. The supreme good is like water which benefits all of creation without trying to compete with it. It gathers in unpopular places. Does it is like the Dow and quote. What are maybe soft. But it's overcomes hardness which we can see in the erosion of Iraq and what are not only seeks to lower places. It's also has no burgers. No goal no specific desire yet. It nourishes everything that passes. It's an incredible life force. That literally does God's work but without any ambition water is the softest and most yielding substance. Yet nothing is better than water for overcoming the heart and rigid because nothing can compete with it and quote if you've ever experienced a state of flow that's one thing that disappears and only comes back when to thinking mind. Take back control. This is focused on results. Rather than the task at hand this reminds me of the story concept of Amore Fatty which recommends want to embrace the outcome. Whatever it may be and instead of worrying about the future focusing on what's in the present no matter if you're completely immersed in sports writing a video game or dancing when you're in a state of flow you forget. The results the pressure the anxieties about the future. The failings of the best. It's just you and a task at hand. You're completely in the present and the only way to do this is by letting go letting go means stops swimming against the current stop holding onto some branches. It means letting go of the past letting go of the future focus on this moment entirely and just live it without hesitation.

Thank you thank you I appreciate it. This was one of the most talked talked about subjects for some time but then everyone just forgot about it. Have there been any updates on his future or why why his departure happened. I see I see. He's active on twitter. Still Very supportive of everything playstation but haven't seen anything regarding him joining someone or anything close to that. Thanks you Manuel Suazo. What happened to Sean late? And where is he. What's he doing? We'll never know unless he decides to tell us we'll never know but like is he. He's not doing anything right. He's chilling I do is eat. It probably made a ton of money on like as executive playstation they can retire for a while. I I think honestly it's a dade. ATTENTIONAL is a lot of their stuff in Europe right now like Jim Ryan is former head of se. Eli Herman Hulst is now the head worldwide studios and he's in Europe. It didn't make all the central lane it'd be like if he didn't want to move to Europe maybe he wanted to be here. But that's just a guess who knows like they. The was it the Sony not being three announcement was gained games intrigue out bears which is a European outlet. I it's we'll never know for sure. We can only speculate but I don't think there's anything dramatic some. I'm looking at Sean lanes twitter right right now. His bio is now citizens slash creator playstation alumnus in. Yeah nothing that's really signaling. Here's a political tweets near which I wasn't expecting nothing Iowa Caucus He reached we hear about how the best political orders of the twentieth century. Are Barack Obama. Adam skip which. Yeah Barack Obama Amazing Order. Yeah no legitimately when probably the best or but nothing about what is up to you replay. He has A. Let's see January thirty first and now this is just this is just us going through John. Laden let's Sean. Listen to this like no stop please. The C- He tweets on January thirty first. Just going to take a moment here to recognize teams that created this innovation. He's talking about playstation vue. I believe Yeah Playstation Vue back in Twenty fifteen it was ahead of his time and I'm very sad to see it. Go thank you. He'll be missed right so he's still and he has some. He's retweeting pat upon stuff so we still like showing some playstation love. You've in Obama love as John Stewart. Let me and you know what I'm starting to dig Sean Lien. Because I also did Jon Stewart. Charlene's run forever forever. Yeah still showing playstation love on his timeline which at least at the very least I feel like means is an absolutely hate playstations guts. Yeah no I I assumed it was always like a very non dramatically of kids. Just don't want to leave California or whatever yeah. Darth pickles writes in and says hey blessing in Iran with platinum games reaching their minimum goal of fifty thousand dollars to bring wonderful one one to switch in just twenty four minutes. Do you think that any other developers will dip in the crowd. Sourcing four refunding are there any reboots or cancelled games. That you'd want to see on kickstarter. Thanks do start pickles. I mean it's a weird Koplowitz events like like fifty thousand obviously would not have been enough to make re master so I started from scratch and that was not a complete game already. That would have been a ridiculous school. That would not have been mad but they would not have enough money for the actual product. I again it goes back to the same thing of if you can only do it so many times like if they tried to do in like doing your blood saying through kickstarter. I don't think it would probably succeed. But it wouldn't do gangbusters. I extend Mu whatever before they had again. It's not going to have the same number and before I I'm struggling to think because like a lot of people who try it are like the well has run dry a bit. I don't I can't think of who else would go for it now. Like all the big games that we haven't soldier two four now our games and if you're trying to revive again would take a ton more money you get from outsourcing. Yeah and a lot of older games that we try to revive. Don't don't stand the test of time in ways and so like you know people like a lot of people have been asking for new time splitters from deep zone or not tips over the over owns the do they know who's above Dow teach. Yeah that's what I'm thinking of. They own deep silver. But it's not the other. It's a weird confusing thing teach. Nordic Group owns over and his funeral the publisher Oh it's a confusing thing so on basically the publisher made the thing the group did not. Yeah I'm I'm just saying bless I think time splitters could hold up in a way that Goldeneye never I mean of corresponding yes. It would hold up better than go doubts that are doing these hunters. I believe they did but I was teased. But nothing was ever officially announce announced. But how will the time splitters like yesterday. That's a new times winners. How will that stand up to like other first-person shooters today? And maybe I'm just talking to my acid washes gameplay of time slater actually played it. You missed missed out. President had a really good multiplayer. I remember it for. I don't know that would stand out. Honestly it would be a lot of people just like. Hey I remember kind of spiders. The appeal time slater's would be that that like you've played or are you familiar with time Swedish from back in the day going. You're going into it as in like. Oh Yeah I love this game. I'm GONNA play it because my previous love or maybe they do something new and special national but I feel like when you in thing right if you if you revived something you kind of have to add a spin on it that actually makes it stand out today or like do something that is that keeps it with the times when you can't bring back something like Spongebob Belfort Bikini bottom. You know I'm excited for it. As one who likes to three D platformer apparently not extended enough to bet on for this station. But that's the thing right. I think that game's GonNa come out and people like you are GonNa love it. People like me might love it. I I never played. Alfred became Ghanem Childhood. Let's actually I played damages. Quebec counts playstation games as a kid. That's all I played. I played those same areas of defense and we saw she over and over again because I had a ps one demo disc. But I mean that's a game that I feel like that's a bad example because kids are going to love a spongebob game but a lot of games you bring back and they don't necessarily age will crackdown three game. That doesn't necessarily hold up. Clicking is better than most people gave it went into four. But yeah I understand what you mean like what what was great. Even ten years ago is not necessarily great now. Yeah Something that was great ten years ago you can you can. If you want to bring it back you have to Utah. Like shoveling is a great example of again like feels grew our member and he escaped into feeling feeling like but is way more advance in almost every way because if it actually control skating it would be unplayable bad that said I know Microsoft owns this. Ip It's not going to go to kickstarter but if somehow somebody if somebody could steal Ip's something to break into the Microsoft office and steal I imagine Ip's deeds where you if you have the deed. Did you own the land. If you could steal the deed for the Jeff Shelvin I put that on kickstarter and bring that back you got my attention that was unreal. Replay wasn't yes. Yes okay so yeah they would own the year said writes in and says firewall being free. NPS plus actually a red flag for how many active players the game has rigs install it arena got put on PS plus for the same reason star. Blood was even shutdown. Is this a sign of firewall. No longer bringing in the money or sustaining a player base. Probably like I've I've heard. I remember doing the preview event for firewall and it was fun. Yeah but I've never heard anyone talk about it really. Yeah Greg. Greg Miller talked about it a lot. But you've never heard Greg Miller and Kevin Colo champion that ship for zonal. That's things like from what I hear from what I hear right. I believe he was nominated for like best vr. I mean I'm sure it's absolutely fine. Yeah it's like hitting the mass market and I think it's one of those things where a multiplayer game in. VR Game have gained fees audiences right. And so there's a Lo- audience and you're able to find matches ray like VR's already thing where it's hard to kind of get into there's like five million. PSBR's out there right like within those five million players all have like twelve friends that are playing that game. Yeah all have three hours and not oculus who says or vibes or whatever and so I think this is the thing like. Hey let's get the The fire all zero our player player base up. You know and I don't think this is this necessarily spells death for firewall but it could be an indicator that yeah that game didn't necessarily sell amazing because it is like a of a more obscure thing underneath VR which is compared to the wide audience a PS four players kind of an obscure thing. Plus I mean maybe done selling. That's fine like they got what they wanted out out of it now. She's like okay now. It's appears plus not necessarily filler tidal. But like the thing we put on here actually for one out Sims. Oh Oh yes since war I might dip into. I might actually make the kind of funny people in that. Oh we'll see how that works out. That'd be fine. That'd be cool like competition you see you. You can make the best kind of funny studio in service since plus that could be a piece of. I'm going to talk to greg now. It's time to squat up. Foodie and fit writes in with a switch Francona. ENCODE says I'm always down for you for Pok Mon yu-gi-oh smashed rather than anything else you want to get on it started. You'll game on switch for online play. I feel like look yu-gi-oh legacy duelists. Okay Yeah we need to look into that. I feel like I want to play some early wonders. Dooley's is the mobile game right right. You'll do links was their concert was there. I'm I'm asking questions that you guys. Obviously I'm bringing you. It's on the right man. Yeah that's what I'm from. One of those new new yields. You knew you don't talk about the racial slur says the second time I think about this. The second admixture. I'm in a good place before I say this the third time. Who is this man? Obviously that's a different universe. That's obviously Yama Yami yu-gi-oh this is like is super say in three. Like if you told me that was like like a weird polka monitoring like yeah I can see that guy. I it though that fast but yeah that's what I was thinking of link. Evolution evolution is the mobile game. You'll see the Dulas was that you make him out by before the switch and then they I guess they poured it. They poured that raiders. I guess is the remastered I have no idea. But it's on on the switch so if you WANNA.

"dow teaching" Discussed on Armchair Expert with Dax Shepard

"Wow Sharon Jesus. You need to start taking breaks during the longer interviews. Just I'm fine for people are listening. Would those are numbers for men in the Dow. Teaching is that women walk away from an orgasm undiminished but it takes something out of guys. We're making prostaglandins making hormones. Were doing something so whatever the deal is. I found that that was I mean. This is a year worth of experimenting. It wasn't entirely pleasant right. I could have more sacks shirt but there's something to that in terms of like if you're going to go and do something really beg. You might not want to ejaculate late the night but that's the old like football. Don't have sex before the game type of thing. It's real yeah that's great because of a physical toll is taking interest. Women are like I'm going to have less orgasms. 'cause you're drops if you're a woman and you don't have orgasms. It's not good site either me lamenting lately about the fact that I don't jerk recall that much we've had many conversations recently with different guys in our friendship circle white how much they do one of her friends does like before they're out of bed in the morning and I'm like like wow I'm jerking once every couple weeks and I was nervous about it. I thought Oh my volatility is low. Abbott now. Feels like it might have yeah I subscribe to the devil is this is this the seventh grade definition like I didn't finish. I would never jerk off and not have an orgasm at this stage in my life. I have no shame aim about masturbating. Thank God anymore but you keep saying one eighty I took gerontology class in college and they said basically potential life span for us is is a species is one fifty where where where's one eighty come from. It's interesting. They chose one fifty. That's pretty aggressive most people I know we can do one twenty because we have people who are one twenty and I've been working in this anti-aging nonprofit field for twenty years. I've learned things for people three times my age you have more energy the night did and I know what's happening because I just wrote the book about it from interviewing six hundred people about it on my show we're cracking the code of aging and if we cannot with our combined resources as a species and the internet which allows us to find research that would have been hidden for decades AIDS before if we can't do fifty percent better than our best today over the next hundred years it's because there's been Zombie Apocalypse or an asteroid hit the Earth Ed fifty percent improvement of Now is not even very good. You look at what we were doing. One hundred years ago we were fighting World War. One on horses in this is a hundred two years. That's how big it is and the last hundred years and we're moving slowly right and right now we're using we're using all these cool technologies to build new technology algae sort exponentially getting better. I don't even think I'm being very crazy pants with one eighty now a truck at him you tomorrow if something bad could happen but barring things like that this. This is not crazy pants. There are people who are going to have live longer than one hundred eighty. It is already in in. It's happening now. Do you know Brett Weinstein Weinstein Weinstein Weinstein do he will. He's an evolutionary biologist just text him the other day saying here's what. I don't understand your cells. Go through my toes. They make a perfectly identical copy of themselves. If everything works they have the power to make an identical copy of themselves. I text him and said Ed if we can make an identical copy of our somatic cells through my toes. Why evolutionary did US dying ever benefit the species because there's really no reason that an animal couldn't live forever and there would be no cost evolutionary because you would just be able to spread your genes longer and longer and longer it really begs the question why dines even a part of the biological equation because it doesn't have to be there is a realm in which you start making an identical copy of myself this day going forward and there's no creepy jeans. That's destroying Tissot. You know these other signs of aging. Why is that not possible. Why hasn't that ever happened. What would you eat. What would I eat. Let's say eight a Gel packet that was completely scientifically engineer that the that came from what something that plants so the plants headed. I feed them. What are the plants son. No plenty of dead people poop. That's what plans he won't now because plants for around before dead people one poop they had bacteria dead bacteria that they reading the dead plants but in all seriousness we we would have no soil on the planet without these. He's amazing. PROBIOTIC sources giant herds of buffalo elephants giraffes jeep goats pigs chiller spreading seed in but the seeds. It's actually the POOP. You actually need to have a carbon cycle right so if we have animals that never die then we'd have no predators right and if you are a species that was engineered to never die you would never reproduce and you wouldn't have the one. I reproduced because you get eaten and if reproducing you never die you get overpopulation into the planet right so you'd you'd need all of the food in your environment especially if you weren't a human but even in the model where five of the two hundred person small hunting and gathering group group live forever they would pass their genes on indefinitely and slowly that ratio of people with that don't die would become one hundred percent over the course of five generations or whatever ray. I still don't understand the tool by which it's going to self correct and there's no record of those mutation still around. You know what I'm saying. There's what what would act against the animal that live forever to correct it overpopulation okay so there'd be overpopulation and let's say eighty percent of the people would die of starvation or male nutrition but those twenty percent would still be around. That's a completely valid point. I just I think the the mere fact that we don't have a single example of a carbon based life form that has live forever. I mean we have Koi fish that live for two hundred years. We've trees live for ten thousand years all these things naked mole rats and these cool corners species the fact that thus as far we've not found anything that has been around since five billion years ago when the earth was formed to me seems like there's something weird that but let's get a little bit woo here here. Okay good all right one of the really interesting books I read. The name is escaping right. Now and author's name is todd. The forward in this book is it's something about states of consciousness but the forward of the book is by the Dalai Lama many times without Allama roads the forward for books. I don't know he's very popular pretty much. Never okay. I can see him doing this book. Yeah okay yeah friend. Dr Is A and this book was about the evolutionary biology arguments arguments for bring carnation and this is a hard core science guy who rewrites USB drivers to talk to brain stimulation things things he went and he said here's all the reasons that it would make sense that consciousness move between lives but meet needs renewal and that solves a lot of problems in and one of the biggest issues here is Abba genetics. We're going through an environmental chantrey now. It is actually getting hotter than it used to be and there are some fantastic taste amazing studies of bacteria. They take bacteria that do not metabolize lactates. This is a type of milk sugar and they put them in an environment where they don't have the genes to do it. That are turned on their. They will starve magically. They change and they turn on lactate production. long-dormant long-dormant genes in order to do this and their environment but their offspring doing anyway so there's all kinds of weird things that happen where life will change more rapidly piddly then genetics predicts mutation model would suggest it's probably because the U. from a thousand years ago probably wouldn't survive very well in today's environment but if you believe any of that past life stuff and I've done some very wise people who've come to grips with the fact the that is the part of the world that they live in including a guy wrote this book they're saying you know maybe we're living. We just don't really perceive it that way. I find there's a great mystery here. Oh yeah there's yeah we know billionth of his wife in just waving your nicotine around us even offer me a spring twice all that you have won over that was Martin Susannah. Martin offering is windows. Superhuman come out. Let me just ask you tober eighth it hits it's shelves at Seville preorder. You get a Dave asprey dot com and there's a bunch of interviews with anti-aging experts. He can't get in other places and we just need the one big questions why one eighty but what you didn't ask about was overpopulation and I'm telling people in here. Here's the seven things that are making your old and the four things you have to not do. Don't I have these four things and fifty seven even things with some small tweaks in your odds of feeling really good when you're old and living longer go way up like it's it's pretty straightforward but what happens if people live a lot longer like what what about the overpopulation problem Let's talk about it because you know it's funny. Maybe this is related or it's not related. I constantly stress out about the fact they're seven billion people here and I think it seems untenable Hannibal and all these things but I did think oh my gosh. This is the easiest problem that can be solved of all the problems we have because literally if just we cut the birth rate in half. We're GONNA shrink precipitously but then I started worrying about what that does the world economy in lack of growth and all this money. We've lent that demands. We have you know three percent level of of all the stuff. I went straight to the economics of downsizing on the planet but it is a problem that could be fixed in thirty years truly. All that has to happen is we. We don't reproduce for thirty years and our population goes in half. My first book was a book on fertility. My wife was in fertile when I met her. We had our first child at thirty thirty nine one at forty two with no fertility systems other than food and supplements and getting hormones dialed in her medical practice now she does consulting over the Internet but wow so we know a lot what about fertility five years of writing a book thirteen hundred references my own children at stake okay. We don't have a global population problem. We have a global fertility told problem. The fertility rate in every developed country is plummeting now. If you want to have kids and you can't have kids. There's your thirty year thing the goal oh population problem. It's a single generation problem. The world is too polluted. People are unable to have kids and the kids are less valuable than they ever have been that will get solved over the next sixty years. I'm planning to be around planning for my kids to be around to see it right. So what I'm more worried about over. Sixty years is the destruction of our soil and the pollution of the oceans because we need them to soak up carbon. Yeah and that's going to be much more ugly problem than there being too many people right but let's just talk about what the world looks like. If people listening to this now like Oh old old-age isn't tubes diapers forgetting my name and giving all my money to the hospital before I die right. This is pretty much the picture most people have yeah what if the picture was when I'm old I'm going to be the village elder and I'm going to have the ability to have the energy the memory and the desire to share decades of wisdom with the next generation and this is actually what old age has been through all societies throughout all of history except the does Norwegians where they were just pushed him off a cliff and got old so other than that It's actually been this way. So do you want to talk someone. I was married fourteen times and I finally got it right..

"But when the easiest ways to write his to write down a problem like what's what what problem is bothering me the right about that. First of all to get the problem clear because that's a hard thing. Many start right about what might possible solutions. And if you fight with those solutions because you know, wanna kill off the stupid ones. And then, you know, maybe you need to learn to speak. More fluently. Maybe you need to. What what what what we say? You could try a class in improvise ation in maybe that's too daunting. You could join a speaker's club like Toastmasters. You could try talking more at dinner parties a little bit. Or once you formulate thought you have to be willing to be somewhat of a bumbling fool to begin with. Right because you're gonna if maybe you're better. Verbal skills are better than you think they are, you know, and you're just self conscious. But after practice putting yourself forward a little bit and tentatively. You can do a lot of that. In a lot of that initial learning how to interact with people though by asking them questions about what they think and then responding instead of being too concerned about putting your own point four. So all right. So what's the answer? What would I advise the personal has the courage to defy the crowd? Good live. According to your principles right in. That's not verbal thing. You could be a good example now, major accomplishment. But then if you need to improve your verbal ability, which is generally good thing than those are the ways to read. Right. Speak. And and and understand developing those abilities might be of tremendous used to you because it's one thing to live properly. And that's not a trivial thing. But it's another thing to be able to articulate yourself and to be able to negotiate and generally speaking, there's nothing about it isn't advantageous and even introverted and anxious people can learn to do that, you know, it's learnable skills. It's not easy. But but you can manage it in. You can also can also speak carefully. Listen to what you're saying. Only try to say things that you think are true. That's also unbelievably useful. You have to feel that out. Like is this really what I believe or my putting it forward because I wanna look good or I want to dominate tour. Or I want to express oblique and emotion that I'm too cowardly to come out and confront directly remind being manipulative -sorts reasons that people use language, but what you really should use it for is to state what you believe to be true. And then to let the consequences of that unfold. And so that can also help you simple truce. Bluntly, stated can be very powerful. You don't need a lot of verbal fluency under those circumstances. If there's evidence of strength of character behind it. So. The Dow teaching speaks of acting naturally. Well, I I don't know if that's true. If it's acting naturally. It depends on what you mean..

I think we have all kinds of great religious literature tells us, otherwise we have wonderful and vital guardrails the beatitudes the Dow teaching the blog about all these things demonstrate what we go to the transcendent and what we owe to one another. But again. The victim essential principle of western life found in the earliest passages of scripture is the men and women were created in the image of the higher of the creator itself. So it stands to reason that if we take that seriously, if we take that seriously, and we are here to create, and I I encourage people I really encourage people to get in touch with their desires and not to slice and dice them with some kind of melancholy or wondering, and I be materialism, I being selfish and my being attached. You're being creative and met the central principle for me. The act of creation is God. Like god. God-like? That's why I like being an artist. Exactly.

The Koran reading the. Dow teaching. Reading other religious texts? Well the Koran and? The Torah are pretty much the same until Abraham Abraham that's what they switch Well the Koran basically is a follow.

Lot of patients that were struggling with weight loss so this is not something. That I take To be a funny situation it's actually not funny at all that. We have such a huge. Problem with weight in this country but the problem, with weight is due to the problem with our appetite we eat. Too much and that's called gluttony, now that's one of the seven deadly, sins? Now these Christians who claim to be so devout and so interested in throwing all these centers in. The hell most of them are overweight if. You let you look around in your churches you're going to see. An awful lot of overweight people to show Super them to point at one particular scene and. Say these people are all.

"Bit. And this is a simple reflection of right in this moment. What if this moment there really is no problem. What's here. What if there's really nothing wrong right now. Than what's here. If there's nothing wrong. Who am I asked that question. What's it like to let go the boulder, just let it fall away. Can you get a glimmer. Of how much having a problem and thinking something's wrong, defines your sense of self and live. If there's no problem right now. Nothing to solve nothing to do. What is here. You can keep your eyes closed if you'd like, but find to open them. There's a friend of mine is to, and teacher teaches with me sometimes here in Washington on Upton and won his book. One of his well known books is called no self, no problem. And I also think it's fascinating to sense how no problem. No self. Can you notice a bit how if you really sense? Oh, there's no problem how the boundaries or sense of self get a little more hazy. Perhaps you can sense that. So we're organized around the sense of there's a problem. There's something missing there something to do. That's the teaching hair. And if we look at what's the Genesis of this inner controller, that always has a problem to solve. We can sense that all organisms come into existence and they have ongoing needs and whenever the needs are not met, that's a problem. There's a sense of an unmet need, and there's an impetus to do something to grasp after something so we can have food or sex or shelter or whatever it is. That's the impetus, okay, fine. So we need that. We humans need to have an impetus to take care of ourselves, but it doesn't stop there. The deep questions, how come it's so chronic that we always think we have to be doing something that we always think something's wrong. And there we start looking at how win the ego evolves and become self aware. What do we become aware of? We start noticing mortality, and it's the background of everything. So it's not like, oh, I've satisfied this need right now. I can be. We never get to be because we're always a frayed that around the corner, something bad's going to happen, and we're always Tensing against what's around the corner. Checking again, does that resonate for you? You can raise your hand and say, Kay, thank you. Livestream that's looks like around eighty. Ninety percent. So we're just looking at our predicament how come we always go around thinking something's wrong and feeling like we have to do stuff, pushing the boulder, just trying to set the frame for this. And the big deal is that we have in the background, a sense of impending loss. And then we make all sorts of stories about it. Like in one one parent describes the family dog died. The mom tried to break the news really gently to her little five year old. And she said, we can all be happy now little bows up and have with God and the little girl said, but mom would God going do with a dead dog. No, it's like I've always loved this guy at the therapist. He's on a couch, you know, and therapist happens to be the grim reaper and the caption. Is grim reapers talking to the therapist. She says, no, I'm sorry. Doctor your time that's out. Okay. So the again, the two assumptions once I got a problem now, I know the ego thinks the problems. I'm gonna lose stuff around the corner, something bad's going to happen. Something's wrong. And often there's a sense of, you know, something's wrong with me, and then there's the have to do something not only that the ego thinks it should be able to take care of stuff. So when we can't, when our body does get sick or we start really looking older, we get the divorce or the custody doesn't work steep down. We think we should have been able to work out that anything that doesn't feel good in our lives. If it feels bad, it means I'm bad just if that doesn't resonate, just check it out. But basically there's very little pausing because railways trying to take care of stuff and the more trauma, there's been in us the more the engine. Is on that background home, saying, fear fear or something bad going to happen, do something you're wrong, life's wrong. It's the mom that writes the sun, the telegraph telegram. This is from way way back and it says, start worrying details to follow. You know that one second of thing. So this is the Dow teaching.
