Joe Rogan Gets Cornered by Lex Fridman Over Trump

"Friedman, this young podcaster big into technology, had Joe Rogan as a guest, which is unusual in and of itself on. And managed to very skillfully walk Joe into a trap of his own making by saying, why didn't you have Donald Trump on your show? You've got the biggest podcast in the world and Rogan says, not interested in helping that guy out. It's not my job. He's nasty. And then literally ten minutes later, he gets into admit, I love Alex Jones. I put him on my show so people could see the other side of Alex Jones. The guy who just got fined $40 million for lying about sandy hook. So this is part of our broader discussion, congrats to lex, by the way. Divisiveness or allowing people to say their viewpoint, shouldn't we welcome that? Because this is the biggest thing about Trump. Oh, oh, he's divisive. He's like, no, this is all. This is all, we have to understand what a monocultural we're living in. This is the thing that skews everything. If Donald Trump had three channels and the left had three channels, I would say, great. Let's fight it out, fight it out. But in fact, the left still holds the high ground, not just in the media, not just in every aspect, except for radio and podcasting. But not only there, but they hold it in terms of the government, obviously, and in terms of law enforcement now, corporations. This was you plugged my half speech before about the collapse of the establishment. That's what I mean. You know, it's one thing. It's one thing to have an avant garde or rebellious avant garde. Sometimes they bubble up fresh ideas and sometimes people like us conservators who ain't no, no, we can't do that. Okay, that's fine. That's part of the system. That's part of how it works. Young people usually a little bit more creative than older people, old people, steeped in tradition, which is also good. We don't have that system anymore. The

Author Andrew Klavan Describes New Book 'A Strange Habit of Mind'

"With Andrew clavin. He is the grand master of the Andrew clavin subscribe, hit the little notifications bell on YouTube, watch it. He's allowed me to transcribe, thanks to Eric we have transcribed his yaf lecture. I'm going to be posting it because you need to read it. If you're not into YouTube or whatever read it, it is that good. However, he just is a grapho maniac. He doesn't sleep. He says that repeatedly on his show. So he's got a brand new book out, a strange habit of mine, no spoilers, but what's the series about? The series is about a parent college professor who's got a very dark past who's got a very violent and dark past. And in this one, he comes face to face with a billionaire social media tycoon. From South Africa? Who he thinks is canceling people in a very egregious way. And it's a story. You know, we were talking about anti heroes in the break. It's a story about a guy trying to go from being an anti hero to becoming a hero that really is what the series is about. And how do you do that? How do you get past the past into the future into being a better man? And here he finds himself faced with questions of race, questions of gender, all the things that are bothering us today and making his way through it as an honest man. And these are issues in the real world. No, I just make this stuff up. Sounds like a good movie script. However, however, no one else would have published this, but mysterious press seriously.

Integrity Is Different for Men and Women

"We're not saying a woman can exist without integrity. But explain why there's a certain plasticity or a little bit of a wiggle room for a woman. But when a man loses integrity, that's it. He's done. Can you expand on that? Well, first of all, women, you know, anyone who knows them knows they think entirely differently than we do. I never returned to my wife and say, well, that's not what you said yesterday. I know it's not what she said. Yes, and she knows it's not what she said. But she feels her way and she actually, the thing that drives men crazy about women is they're completely out of their minds, but they're not always wrong, right? Things keep saying, well, I don't know where that came from, but it's true. So you learn to respect their way of thinking. But it's not the same as our kind of clunkier, more direct, more naked way of thinking, using reason and courage to kind of move forward into what we feel, the truth is. And so we have no we have no wiggle room like that. We have to, when we make our mistakes, we have to admit them, change our minds, move on. And when we're not making mistakes, we have to move forward very forcefully, or else the world falls apart. People who wear t-shirts who say the future is female future is never female, and the reason the future is never females, if you've had two children and one of them says, I'm going to take a cardboard box and turn it into a ramp and take my skateboard to the moon, that's the boy. That's the crazy boy, because he'll do it and he'll break his legs and he'll be in traction. But one day he'll invent that thing that will do what he wants it to do.

And if you read this book, you will say, oh, there's nothing else like this because it's very hard to get published now without being woke. And this is so unwoke. You'll feel like awake in the awakened table. Right now, I'll be impressed 'cause it's not out yet. No. But it is important because this is how those scumbags in The New York Times do these things. If the pre orders, the pre order, if you drop enough pre orders now, when the official stats are launched on the first week, that's how oh look, he sold 60,000 copies in one day.

How Woke Culture Ruined Dating

"This story you'll find to be interesting because I think it says a lot about the unfortunate state of dating culture, among people in my generation. But it's a sweet story. I was visiting Cambridge back in October of 2020. We were sent home that year due to COVID. It was my junior year. And there were some friends I had who were living off campus in Cambridge, zooming. And so I just made a trip because what the hell else was I doing that semester to Cambridge to visit my friends off campus. And there's this fabulous ice cream store in Harvard square called JP lex. It's named after Jamaica plains. It's a suburb of Boston. That's what the JP stands for. They have the best ice cream. I gained 15 pounds freshman year. That I have since lost, thank God, but thanks to that ice cream. Anyway, it was late at night, and I had just seen one of my friends. And before I went back to my hotel, I had to stop there to get an ice cream cone. And I was just sitting outside. It was October. It was a nice evening. Just eating my ice cream alone. And this guy walked up to me. And he sat down with me, and I immediately sat down? Well, I should clarify. He approached, and he said, hi, I'm, oh, God, I can't remember his name, Jim, or started the Jay. I think you're really beautiful. Do you mind if I sit? And I was very, very taken aback. And he looked, you know, he didn't look menacing, so I let him sit. And he was really sweet. He was saying, I'm a graduate student. I'm living off campus, you know, what flavor is that? You know, he was just being nice. And I was so freaked out. I just sat there kind of paralyzed. And you know me, I am rarely without words. I just, I didn't know what to do. And I felt really bad, and I said to him, you know, oh, I so appreciate your, I don't know. Your forthcoming Ness or your politeness, I said something, but I'm not comfortable with this.

"That's not a provocation that's not something that compels the leader of another country to invade you. That is legal under international law and it's also a realist fact of life. The realists like to tell you, you know, that Russia here was disrespected, Russia's interests were not taken into account, et cetera, et cetera, but the real world works in such a way that treaties matter that international law matters. That's why people like me were not in favor of the U.S. 2003 invasion of Iraq. Lex, because it wasn't legal. In addition to the fact that we thought it might backfire. But you know Alex, like I said, there are a lot of things about the west that we ought to criticize the citizens. And we do criticize. But we have to be clear about where responsibility lies. In these events that we're talking about today. So you get to trouble, it's largely erroneous to think about both the west or the United States from an imperialist perspective and Russia from an imperialist perspective is better, clearer to think about each individual aggressive decision on its own as a choice that was made. So let's talk about the most recent choice. Made by Vladimir Putin. The choice to invade Ukraine or to escalate the invasion of Ukraine on February 24th, 2022. Now we're a few months removed. From that decision, initial decision, why do you think he did it? What are the errors in understanding the situation and calculating the outcomes and everything else about this decision in your view? Yeah, lex, when you don't win a war doesn't go well, it looks like lunacy to have launched it in the first place. Does it ever go well? War never goes according to plan. All war is based upon miscalculation. But not everybody is punished for their miscalculation. All aggressive war we're talking about, not defensive war. It's based upon miscalculation. What you can adjust, you can recalibrate. You know, when you're driving down the road and that very annoying voice is telling you in a thousand feet, make a right. And you fail to make a right and recalibrates, right? Yeah. It tells you, okay, now, you know, go turn around or U turn or make a left or it doesn't say you're an idiot and turn around and make a U term, but it does recalibrate..

"Now here's where it gets fun. Now that every cell in your brain is knows what it has to do in the sense that we know it and we're providing it. Your brain cells don't need to be in your head anymore at all, right? The only reason they're next to each other. The only reason they're wired together is to affect each other to stimulate or inhibit each other. But we don't need that anymore because optogenetically we're providing that activity pattern for as long as needed. We're providing the effect of the communication. They don't need to be connected anymore. They don't even need to be in your head. I could spread your neurons all over the continent all over the galaxy. And I could still provide the same stimulus pattern over ten or 15 seconds to all those neurons, and somewhere Lex Friedman would be would have to be, even though no longer existing as a physical object anymore, would be feeling that subjective feeling. And it's inescapable because it's exactly the same as the previous situation. All the neurons have to be spatially the locality constraint. There have to be spatially close to each other. And you talk about light opto, which is funny because light is the fastest traveling thing that we know of. Maybe let's not put them all over the universe because we might get relativistic problems then. Let's just keep them. Let's keep all your neurons. Let's spread them over North America, okay? And let's play them out. Same pattern of activity. And it seems absurd, right? There's no way that could be true. There's no way that the lex would be feeling that internal sense of his neurons were spread all over North America. And yet it's exactly the same as the previous situation where you said, sure. Wow. So we got a paradox. And this is what makes people paradox though. We got a problem. We got a problem. Because it reveals that there's something big about that internal subjective state that we're not explaining. And we don't really have a hope of explaining in the near future. But don't you think we would still have that, it's just the word internal loses meaning, but don't you think we still have that internal subjective state? Whereas if not, then where the heck is the magic coming from? Okay, well, I just think, I think one of the problems that I think we need to let go of is we tend to outside of the experience of consciousness..

They also have an 1111 remembrance day, but then the Sunday after there are church services and gatherings in its poppy day, where you wear the red poppy and remember it's a World War I. Cabbie figures it out. Drives to where he figures he can jump out and run and let the car drift and he did. He jumped out, let the car roll to a stop at a traffic circle. Where there was no person, car blows up, killing the suicide bomber and nobody else. And the terrorist police are arresting everybody in

You know as if you were newborn baby. But with a little more experienced he can really notice just how incredibly strange in delicate and julia impossible. The real world is Sue the magic is and perhaps forever will be in the physical world. Well that's my take on it. That's just me. I mean. I think i don't get to tell everybody else how to think or how to experience retreat. At this point there have been multiple generations of younger people who've come along and liberated me from having to worry about these things But i should say also even in a what. I called it mixed reality back in the day in these days. It's called augmented reality But with something like a hall and even then like one of my favorite things to augment a forest. Not because i think the forest needs augmentation but when you look at the augmentation next to a real tree the real tree just pops out as being astounding you know it's it's interactive. It's changing slightly all the time if you pay attention and it's hard to pay attention to that but when you compare to reality all of a sudden you do and even in practical applications My my favorite early application of retrea audi which we prototype going back to the eighties. When i was working with dr joe rosa and at stanford med near near where we are now. We made the first surgical simulator and to go from the fake anatomy of the simulation which is incredibly valuable for many things for designing procedures for training things then to go to the real person. Boy it's really something like Surgeons really get woken up by the transition. It's very cool. So i think the transition is actually more valuable than the simulation

"What is self supervised learning and may be even give the the bigger basics of what is supervised and semi supervised learning and may be wise self supervised learning a better term than unsupervised supervising. Let's start with supervised learning so typically for machine learning systems. The they're trained. Is you get a bunch of humans. The humans point out particular concept. So if it's in the case of images you weren't the humans to come and tell you what is the president and the image dropbox on them draw. Mosques reflecting pixels vision of particular categories not for. Nlp again there are lots of these particular tasks say about sentiment analysis about endangerment and so on so typically for supervised learning we get a big corpus of such annotated or label data and then we feed that system and the system is really trying to mimic. So it's taking this input of data and then trying to mimic the output. So it looks at an image and humanist dog that this image contains a banana and now the system is basically trying to mimic that. That's it's learning signal and so for supervised learning. We tried to gather lots of data and we train these machine learning models to imitate the input-output and the hope is basically by doing so. Now an unseen or like new kinds of data this mortar can automatically to predict these concepts. So this is a standard of supervise setting for semi supervised setting. The idea. typically is that you have of course all of the supervise data but you have lots of other data which is unsupervised which is like not labeled now the problem basically to learning and by you actually have all of these alternate sort of learning paradigm supervised building. This just does not skill so if you look at for computer vision. The largest one of the most popular data sets his image it right so the entire data set has about two thousand concepts

Journalism is truly damaging our ability as a society to have difficult long-form conversations as we strive towards the truth. Truth is not an easy thing to arrive at. It requires understanding context that requires understanding. History requires understanding lived experiences. Different people to be empathetic to be data driven to be rigorous with your analysis. All those things include bay journalism is completely antithetical to that. So that's why. I think you should support ground. News in other companies that kind anyway try them out by signing up at ground dot news slash. Lex is inexpensive. So's definitely worth it. But like i said it's also good support all the different efforts that try to fix our current state of journalism and the media. Go to ground that news lex. Sign up and show. You support this. The lex friedman podcast and here is my conversation with jaakko willing. Is it tragic or beautiful to you that some of the clauses bonds that have formed between people are through war often. I think it's both both tragic and beautiful and for the obvious reasons. What are the obvious reasons. Why is it so obvious. Well it's tragic because a lot of people die and it's beautiful because you form bonds with people that are very difficult to break once you've been through them. What is it about the trauma of war that makes bonds difficult to break. Because what you realize when you're in war. Is that the people that are next to you. You rely on them. And they're relying on you to survive and without them you will not survive and when you realize that you need to work together as a team to to live that forms a very strong bond and there's nothing like team outside of the.

"You know there's no way for us to To talk about the lex luger story and not address. One thing that i think. He's sort of been handled unfairly with. I'm talking about miss elizabeth. A lot of fans And we've got a lot of questions about it and we're not going to go through them all but a lot of fans sort of point the finger at legs and say. Oh well miss elizabeth. I don't think that's fair to lex You know there's sadly been there's been a lot of people who we fell in love with as wrestling fans in the wrestling profession. Who lost their life way. Too early new to a lethal combination of drugs and alcohol. And i don't know that it's necessarily fair that wrestling fans sort of point the The ugly stick lex luger in that regard for her. It's personal accountability. You know for instance bam bam bigelow. He passed away no seven And it was an accidental overdose. Type situation just like miss elizabeth. But i think wrestling fans have convinced themselves that the real life missile is bliss. Was this you know. I don't know how pristine snow type character that we saw with with the macho man back in the eighties but the real life that that's not a real life in real life. She drugs and alcohol. She did too much one day and she lost her life. But that's an it's not like luger's holding her down and making it. No you get what i'm saying here. Yeah it was made out to be the he'll it's not famous too pristine. She was too much of a. You know the girl next door. Our tv character That that w. w. f. developed along the savage was You know tv character. Yes and You know i. I can't speak to that real well. Because i just never had any relationship with her at all well but the point is jim even if i'm just let's pretend from even if we're going with the idea that oh he was a bad influence on her. Where does the personal accountability come in. Like she's an adult. Yes she's here's an adult of macaroni decisions and the decision. Say when she died. The i'm i'll admit i'm guilty too because my preconceived notion of miss elizabeth was that of a essentially a southern belle. Yes and That didn't have any negative baggage right so when i heard that she died of a drug overdose i two said well that must have been That trained must have been driven by lex so he changed. He changed from the lex express to something else areas driving. But let's not like you said. He can't be blamed for her have. It's no and some people are listening to. This is going to disagree with that. And that's your prerogative folks. I'm not gonna you down well at the same time. If that's true then you know. What's the is the difference that there's a romantic relationship. Because i mean can we blame lex luger for bam bam bigelow untimely death or big boss man's or recruits or paintings. No i mean at the end of the day. these are grown. Elizabeth was forty two years old and she made poor choices that caught up with her and cost her life. And it's sad but it doesn't necessarily mean we should all blame lex luger and he's been nas for a long long time on that deal and and i can only imagine from his perspective no matter the circumstance when you lose someone who is that big of a part of your life and it happens right in front of you. That's gotta be god awful tragic. Yeah it is and it's not fair not fair to have to live with that more days than not so. That's a good point. You bring up a very good point. Conrad you know. She's got the miss. Elizabeth has to be held accountable for her own actions if She was being manipulated to doing. Excessive amounts of of life threatening drugs and alcohol at the behest of her beloved. Lex not have a different story there but we don't know that fans just created that narrative you know i grew agree with you so bottom line is that she s to be accountable for our own actions and people should stop blaming lex luger remiss elizabeth's death. Yes and when they do that they'll probably feel better about themselves that no. There's no way in hell that i did. I i was one of those people though On thinking oh x. heard alexis party and real heavy and all this good stuff And so that's got to be italian there somehow someway so then instead of not. Not really vilifying still putting the blame where it needs to be a lot easier to lex because again. He not embraced himself to a lot of people. And that's why one of the reasons the head is issues in wrestling was and he didn't get over because he didn't connect to the audience he lex luger was not a beloved character. Miss elizabeth was a beloved character. So you go to the vega and the bad guy in this scenario and the eyes of many folks was the male of the lex. So i don't know i but the bottom line the bowl and this deal.

Summer's up wanted out earlier. I think it's funny finally said as it's not gonna work right and and and a lot of open motors would be looking at their expense sheet saying how much i spent on promoting this guy not interesting man. He didn't he didn't he didn't live that way he just move on. And that's kind of what i think. They decided to do with lex until somewhere about winter. You know well some aromas coming up. Let's let's Let's try this one more time right. Let's make sure now because you see other guy looks to make sure. Now that that we're not screwing this thing up and And and as as it worked out Red heart was the answer. Not lex luger. Let's talk about Lex at the end of wcw. You know it feels apparent. That jeff jarrett was persona non grata. When w w goes down. vince publicly. Fires him on tv. But we haven't really talked about lex luger. Was there any interest in lex. I mean we know that buff gets shot. Why didn't lex get a shot with the company was even discussed. I discussed very seriously. 'cause you know the old liver doesn't change its spots. He's he's a high dollar Guy that's not a top guy okay. He perceived as a top guy again. Look at the kasa character. The team he was on. Cw before wwe. Yeah he your father-in-law star and So you know credit. The nate's on that deal. As i said earlier he didn't have this nature boy and wwe he didn't have the one of the most respected guys and tire issue. The business Taken by the hand and trying to lead into the promised land. So i think that we're probably in the short answer would be the ship had sailed. We were done. So i i. I don't remember any I don't remember any serious discussions about bringing back in for a second run after the Minneapolis nitro thing. Not at all chat me up. The you remember talking the lax after he leaves the wwf. I mean obviously you did. I know you did a podcast with him years later but when is the next time you inlex have a conversation might have been then not much. I wasn't real close with it. I didn't dislike him. I his attitude. Sometimes it's a little bit stressful. Because he's he didn't have a big keen sense of urgency sometimes I remember one time. We ran Or was we ran event and nassau coliseum. Thank isn't a new york area. I think it was. Nassau might have been east river new jersey. i'm not sure but some one of those markets and he was up. I was helping produce a show and it was his. You know he was next and as a high level match and he was just taking this time. Music sleigh and and I remember saying something you know. Come on last guy down there waiting on you you know. It's like take it easy. Jr just take it easy so okay have out of town. You know you knew when. You're coming on i you know. There's no reason started discussion right. What is there to to discuss. Assist was a good so we didn't have a close about the only. The person to lex was staying in the in the wcw. All those years. I'll sure other guys so he's a friend of mine you know we'd talked. Would or i go there. Jim and workout or whatever but a lot of guys that he didn't he wasn't outgoing so To me or anybody else. In that respect so i don't think i i don't remember talking to him. What are you going to say right. I say good luck you know. If you do great the the obligatory stuff but you know it was really meaningful. I don't know it's lip service to me but No i i. Don't i don't re- i didn't have the relationship with conrad that would have prompted me to To seek him out on that.

"Well it is the end of the earth or so feels like for luger here when he's Quickly going to move to the backseat. Yoko and take her sort of married here. And it's going to be fighting. The on americans and the taker yoko program gets real hot and now there's a bunch of cheers for bret hart. It feels like brett is firmly in the catbird seat to be the next big star. It's not going to be lex luger as the next hulk hogan windy. You remember that. Sorta settling in on. Not just vince. But the rest of the office because it does feel like we're looking for our next hogan and and we're not sure the lex can be the gob we're giving it the. Oh the oh college trough but then sort of reemerges as now. It's it's still brad. It's going to be brad. And it was a stop. And start for brent. They had tried this before. And yoko beat him and hogan came back. And we've covered that with wrestlemainia nine but now it feels like okay. We've come to our senses. It really is brad. Do you remember there being a moment time when that happened one moment no i know it would have been after summer slam. Probably was before summer slam caused it. The commitment have been made conrad to go with lex it would have been that would have that. We that would have been a decision would have been made prior to summer slam whether you're going to have the match the title. Yeah and yoko and lex. So i'm saying that sometime that summer after the intrepid before august Ensure came back with a guilty verdict. We're not gonna we're not gonna go there and again And i and i applaud pat. you know. The pat was the vo tae of breasts. A lot of us were a lot of guys are kind of older. School believed in brush working ability. The fact that he was he didn't hurt people as i said earlier in the fact that he was dirt. Durable fundamentally sound and and he was not a spot oriented guy he was arrested and that's why he got over and we're still talking about it now because he can do a hurricane rana and south assassin ahead but just the fact that rhett was that good and i think it's just unfortunate that he was never given until later on the credit that he deserved for being arguably the best in the world. There was a time there where you know. Well it's always. It's always sean. It's always this guy. This red heart guy. I wouldn't want to leave him out of any discussion. Who's one of the best workers ever. That would make no sense to me. So i think that somewhere along that summer was discovered or realized whatever that Lex is not going to be the answer unfortunately and But you know it sounds kind of guys say well. We spent all this money on conrad. We've got to continue on. the course. mcmahon is big about cutting us losses. He's off something he's also. I can take him experience so And he doesn't need a specific reason this a gut feeling and he'd always say he's told this meet my trackers good. Jr trackers pretty good and it is look where you are in the market share globally. It's not just like you run. Your little northeast territory right. You're the the world is your territory. So i think you've done pretty well. You're with your tracker. Well the royal rumble. It's a well remembered for the double finish. You know you've got luger and brad touching the same time scott to be A little nerve wracking from a production standpoint but they pull it off. What did you think of the finnish. Two guys types in the floor at the same time. This is the first time that has happened in the rumble. that was patterson finish and You know you can. You can make an argument. That may have been the argument that patterson gave dance. Who may have said well. Let's let's give luger one more try. That could have happened and pat says best. You know it's not gonna work. We've done everything we can form And been bradshaw guy and they come up with a finish for bread and lex. Both get spotlight. I didn't. I liked the finish quite frankly because it was different. We've always said here on the show wrestling fan slow things that are new and unique innovative and i look at that finish as just that very innovative and it kept the story alive to where you left the air with more questions than answers and i always think that's a good for i. Love the idea and ultimately does feel like. Hey this could be lugar's chance of course wrestlemania. Ten as we discussed he comes up short again. It's brands night. And he's not going to be the world champion here or anytime in the wwf after wrestlemania ten. He's off to feud with mr perfect again but it starts to feel like he's floundering a little bit. He's floating through the mid card with the likes of crush into talka- not to disparage those guys to say it felt like once upon a time he was going to be the world champ after wrestlemainia. Ten is it fair to say that. luger's characters just sort of going through the motions here in the wwf Well the lack of a better fresh probably going through the motions also signifies. Somebody's not pronounced any effort. They're not doing anything extra to get over. I'm not so sure. It was that extreme but for simplicity. He relax read the handwriting on the wall. I say his gold will be the champion was On in chicago summer slam. You tell us beautiful story you get there and you Nothing there's no climax made you know. I'm not going to detail analogy but nonetheless It just there's no payoff and the fans felt let down and then they felt that will. He's not our guy..

"The steroid guys you know A warrior kind of guy who their mindset is so tied to their look that when they see themselves you know one of those icy lexa tv and And i would even bo companies and he knew us bullshit but for a second there he would he would really have been relaxed a little bit and sell for my of bullshit. I seem all time to say. Hey manny are you feeling alright yeah remain. Oh nothing really. What do you mean. Look the flu or something lost. Wait another weight off and that was bothering of course. There are so dependent on their look because they knew that they weren't that great bell to bell. They weren't great enough build a bell To you know There weren't built a bell to just let that that work be foundation of your your career. Because now they're looking at. They're looking at their. Their physique is so much a part of presentation and a lot of guys. They come off the stock the sauce. They lost a lot of confidence. They they thought they lost their ace in the hole will be the greatest worker a might not be a funk or briscoe or some of that stuff flare shawn michaels. But and that era but at least so when they go off the sauce they still look good. Conrad you and i would take lex. Leadership zeke off right now. Yeah if i had this zeke. I would not even i do the show shirtless. Yeah pantheon yeah he just be down at the pool all day flexible. Yeah that's silly. So i think that the steroids has a as a multiple can have multiple facets to your to your psyche I know a lot of guys that want to rationalize and say well. I do the steroids. I've done the steroids or recovery. And i'll say okay. I'll i'll i'll go out on a limb here and give you that but let's be realistic. You're doing steroids. Because it makes you look now. How helps you recover. And i think that this event saw lex you know he's he wasn't the same head-turner smaller sized downsize. Lex luger was not as impressive. Welcome to the airport as a bigger lecture if that makes any sense yeah so i think that's kind of where that that's that's for. That story kind of comes together. Sort of steroid. Circuits are personally. I'm not against roy's if you wanna you if you're under doctor's care and you're getting all your blood work done and you're adhering to the medical practices this you're being managed by dr have added but Other than that You know if you're self medicating on anything that's wrong. And if you're using steroids as if i just got on the gas i could get over. Total bullshit. I guess i'll get over total bullshit. I've always believed that but at the same time. Sounds like a american politician I believe that If they're property managed and under doctor's care it's not the end of the earth. It's okay you can admit you're skeptical about mock commercials about save with conrad.

"A stab at it. The lex express is the idea of going to criss cross the country but he doesn't wrestle his first wrestling match after body. Slamming yokozuna it's for the us w. a. in memphis at the mid south coliseum and he's going to defeat kyoko in a non title match tar. Listen i understand that. Vince as that famous clip out there. That says we make movies. I get that. But if we're to criss cross the country and try to get this guy over. Should we not have you know winsome fucking matches. What did you think of that creative. Well it was just a different philosophy. Connor i bet she just marketing. You know it was the o. Barnstorming tour you know. Jack dempsey barnstorming tourism boxing. But he back in the day. He didn't fight never tale right. It's all publicity and and the it was expensive. Have driver an attendant. You know guys like him have to eat every three hours so seriously somewhere thereabouts and they gotta eat certain things not like you have me on the on the conrad express. We're gonna stop whatever fucking open. We don't care yeah burgers pizza. You got any barbecue whatever's there we're gonna eat it. He wasn't that way you know he he had to have. This is grilled chicken breasts and all those things and balance cards. I'll say that he's very dedicated. I eight but i can see why i think that's why we we. He didn't wrestle as much the other thing. Was you know we knew that that was the marriage. It's going to be yoko and lex. Obviously yoko in the champion. It was thought that alexa be the next champion. But this wanna make sure that lex had always is dotted. He's crossed as related to work with yoko. That's why they went off. Broadway down in memphis and how to run three. See how that was going to be. Because everybody's got to kind of figure out their next their dance partner new music and all that good stuff so that was all done to protect the less because we knew what we had yoko. Obviously so i think that's the that was based freeze. just publicity. Bartering publicity and then they shoot all this video footage and these towns salt crowd a little bit. So there's a crowd there. It's like a lot of the owed. I always compared to the politicians on the train. You know it's just a you had to have a crowd there and then that crowd made the news this newsreel. Thanks back in the day. So now you've got your camera crews with you there. Twenty four seven and they can feed back this footage to stanford for the for the vignettes and all the stuff in the in in our tv shows so he was oh television a lot but in a controlled way to help create his image and the is to have tell me about the lex express as a concept. I mean this is the first time. I remember something like this being done in wrestling. What did you think of a. We're gonna put lex luger on a bus and you knew lex luger. The the real guy behind the character What do you think he thought of the lex express concept. Well i know he thought he wanted to get over. Yeah for sure. And i know that he wanted to get to the next level where the big money waiting But i don't know how How how motivated. He was to live on that bus for awhile. You know Some guys could make a just fine so guys feel like they're being you know strangled Squeeze squeeze a little bit. He never told me that exactly. But i know that when i would see him raina He would say something along the lines of just good ago at the best for a while. Because like i said being challenging for sure so Here's a tour bus kind of what it was. The lex express had had all the vanities. Tv bed the bed fitting goes. You're so damn big but nonetheless. I think that he was happy. When it got off the bus from time to time and stretch his legs fresh air and all that good stuff. So i think it started off just fine but the it's one of those deals for if i can endure the schedule and in coexist living on the bus. If i might just get over finally. I think that's what lexus county on to get over. Because he had this is i. He had been support and he had advanced had again that hulk hogan image of you know big muscular guy. Yeah all that. Good stuff so But i i'm sure challenging is hell. It would be for me. I could tell you that. What did you think of the. I'll be your hero music video. Do you remember that vaguely. I wanna play it for you. Because i know that you're really excited about it. I i can tell glad and worrying darks.

"Mr jim rawls jim. How are you man good. Conrad i'm ready to rock and roll. Finish out this compelling lex luger story as we're going to pick it up today. from wrestlemainia nine. And you told me so. Yeah the next time you lex. I was actually there for that or not. So the But we got good responsible last liver show. He's very polarizing character. Is one way of saying. I think so. It should be fun. as as a as a urban meyer would say this is a deep dive and as as one of my best friends says. There's a lot to unpack here. Let's keep it rolling. I am pumped to keep it rolling and talk about the lex express and all of that. Entailed lex luger. I think when i was a kid. He's got to be one of my top five favorites. He looks like a real life action. Figure and of course you know. Don't get me wrong i'm still alexa. Gra fan but now more alexa lugar fan of the man because i had the good fortune of meeting him and man. I know there's some stories about olex. Was this way and lex. Was that way. I cannot stress how much respect and appreciation. i have for lex luger. The person as we're talking here today in twenty twenty one so i'm just pumped to talk about it man. I think he's a fascinating individual. I think he's got one hell of a story and to To be on the other side of of so much stuff. And it's that's a great place is really remarkable. It is yeah. He said he's another one of those guys. So we did the magnum ta show it weeks ago and imag got a bad hand dealt him and then lexus kind of saint category. You know there's health issues or or been very challenging. So i think he has taken on a different perspective now than a lot of fans had of him early earlier when he was wrestling. And what did what attracted you to him. Zeke yeah i don't know i mean i was a big thing fan and a big scott steiner and rick starter fan so back in the day w w when i first started watching those guy. Those four were like inseparable. So you know. i mean sure. They're trying to take on the horsemen and all that. But that's like the cluster of good guys at the time. And i i guess you could probably throw in flying brian in their Maybe even zemun. But flying. Brian and the steiner brothers and stinging lex luger when i was a kid man that was. Wcw that was fun. Yeah yeah good group of guys a group of guys. I could tell you that. So well you know we covered Lacks going in only. I started the football you know. Is he played a lot of football. But it was kind of undistinguished. And i was just kind of got a burner my saddle because anytime you play at a d. one level anytime you get a opportunity to play professional football on any scale That they nothing wrong with that. And i thought that he Some people married that lack of football success to him. And i don't think that's fair so but in any event Where now to the part of lexus career had made the big jump finally yup and On oh vince always coveted lex and largely issue. The question he he was enamored by lexus. Look right how marketable is alexis. Look laws and And vincent body guy and lex certainly had a body and a very good one. Yeah let's talk about it. He was the he was the narcissist when he comes in i mean i guess we should sort of set the table. He he winds up coming over just as we finished a few weeks ago. meltzer predicted. Hey he's gonna come over and be a part of the wbf and as soon as his contract allows him to his start wrestling for the world wrestling federation and that is the way it shook out of course. Jr wasn't there for that Jr shows up at wrestlemania nine. So that's where we can really pick up the story but by the time you get there luger had already been wrestling for the wf for a bit and the The story had been. Oh he's got steal play in his forearm. And he's using that as his has finished which i guess is pretty creative. But the narcissist gimmick. I mean you were just talking about. How vince mcmahon and even lex luger himself or enamored with his physique as well he should be probably the best body maybe in the history of wrestling. He's got these I don't know ladies. I guess we call him accompanying him to the ring and they're holding the the mirror and he's posing and flexing. It's an idea. What did you think of the narcissist persona thought. We could have done better. Yeah but did hate it about thought. We could have done better. I had to get my dictionary. Narcisse even meant. I really did. I didn't know so And that's i the irony of that is working interesting all those years. I was nineteen years in the business. Before i got to wwe. So i wasn't exactly an overnight sensation even though there's previous nineteen years not.

Oh my god they're reusable rocket will shoot up sixty five miles into the sky which is apparently the edge of space which i did not know. That's less then. The the the the mileage from los angeles to san diego strata going up to five miles really far san diego's pretty out there. Imagine san diego was in was almost in space. That sounds yeah. He'll be reaching the edge of san diego and returning to earth without going into orbit. That is a very important part of this is that they're not. They're not flying to the moon. They're not going to mars. They're shooting up sixty five miles into the into the sky and then they're going to hopefully safely return back to earth without going into orbit

The Future of Computing, AI, Life, and Consciousness

"What's the value and effectiveness of theory versus engineering. This dichotomy in building. Good software or hardware systems. Well it's good designs both. I guess that's pretty obvious. By engineering dean. You know reduction to practice of known methods in sciences to pursuit of discovery. Things that people don't understand or solving problems. Definitions are interesting here. But i was thinking more in theory constructing models. The kind of generalize about how things work engineering is actually building stuff. The pragmatic like okay. We have these nice models but how do we actually get things to work. May be economics is a nice example. Like economists have all these models of the economy works and how different policies will have an effect. But then there's the actual us call it engineering of like actually deploying the policies so computer design is almost all engineering and reduction to practice message now because of the complexity of the computers. We built you know you. You could think you're well we're just go write some code and then will verify and we'll put it together and then you find out that the combination of all that stuff is complicated and then you have to be inventive to figure out how to do it right. So that's definitely has happens a lot and then every so often some big idea happens but it might be one person that ideas in what in space imaging or is it in space a lot sample so one of the limits of computer performances branch predictions. So and there's there's a whole bunch of ideas about how good you could predict a branch and people said there's a limit to it and that's matata curve and somebody came up with a better way to do branch prediction of a lot better. And he published a paper on it and every computer and world now uses it and it was one idea so the the engineer who build branch fiction and hardware. We're happy to drop the one kind of training array and put it in another one so it was. It was a real idea and branch. Prediction is as one of the key problems. Underlying all of sort of the lowest level of software bows down to branch. Prediction boils down on certain computers delimited. By single thread computers ltd two things the predictability of the the branches and predictability the locale of data. So we have predictors at now predict both those pretty well. Yeah so memories. You know a couple hundred cycles away. Local cash couple cycles away. When you're executing fast virtually all the data has to be in the low cash so simple program says you know. Add one to every element array. It's real easy to see what the stream data will be. But you might have a more complicated program. That's you know says. Get a get a element of this array. Look at something. Make a decision. Go get another element. It's kinda random and you think that's really unpredictable. And then you make this big predictor. That looks at this kind of pattern. And you realize well if you get this date in this data then you probably want that one and if you get this one this one and this one you probably want that one and is that theory. Is that engineering like the paper. Those written was that Todd kinda kinda discussion or is it more like. Here's a hack. that works. well it's a little bit of both. There's information theory. I think somewhere to actually trying to prove but once once you know the method implementing. It is an engineering problem. Now there's a flip side of this which is in a big design team. What percentage of people think. They're they're they're they're they're planner their life's work is engineering. Versus design inventing things. So lots of companies will reward you for filing patents. Some many big companies got stock because to get promoted. You have to come up with something new and what happens is everybody's trying to do some random new thing ninety nine percent of which doesn't matter and the basics get neglected and or they get. There's a dichotomy day. Think like the cell library. Baixa cad tools. You know our basic you know software validation methods that simple stuff you know they want to work on the exciting stuff and then they spend lots of time trying to figure out how to patent something and that's mostly useless but the break was on simple stuff. No no you know you have to do the simple stuff really well. If you're building a building bricks you want great brex. So you go to two places to sell brexit one guy says yeah there over there an ugly pile and the other guy is like lovingly tells you about the fifty kinds of bricks and how hard they are beautiful. They are now square. They are you know which when you buy bricks for him which is going to make a better house.

The Code of Hammurabi

Everything Everywhere Daily

The Code of Hammurabi

"Hemmer robbie was the king of the babylonian empire from approximately seventeen ninety two to seventeen fifty bc. Just to put that into perspective. This was over a thousand years. Before the city of rome was even founded as babylon emperors went hammurabi was pretty successful when he rose to power babylon was still a relatively minor player in the region and when he died he had conquered most of potato along both the tigris and euphrates rivers. The region was almost entirely in. What is today modern iraq. Like any good king win. Hammurabi wasn't conquering nearby kingdoms. He was passing laws and making sure that his kingdom ran smoothly and efficiently. It is believed that hamurabi sent out scholars to the various kingdoms. He conquered to collect the various laws of all realms and then collected them into a uniform code of laws for everyone. The result of this was the code of hammurabi which is believed to be two hundred and eighty two laws regarding any number of different infractions. Crimes and disputes the laws were inscribed on a stone and clay tablets and spread around the kingdom. The stele which was found in one thousand nine hundred one is exceptionally well. Preserved the object itself is a hard blackstone known as diorite. it's shaped like a giant human finger at the top is an image of hammurabi receiving the laws from the babylonian god chumash. There is then a preface which states the following quote and who in bell called me by name hamurabi the exalted prince who feared god to bring about the rule of righteousness in the land to destroy the wicked and evil doers. So that the strong should not harm the week. So that i should rule over the black headed people like chamo- and enlighten the land to further the well being of mankind unquote about six hundred years later. The was taken by the king of elam. Shrek know if you've ever watched the two thousand two movie the emperor's club with kevin kline. You'll remember that should noonday was as the example of someone that no one remembers except that i just mentioned him in podcast and he was in a movie under the reign of Dante was believed that he erased two three dozen of the laws. Originally written by hamurabi researchers have been able to recreate the deleted laws by finding other clay tablets. That had the law's written on them sometime after that it was buried as ancient things tend to do and it was rediscovered in one thousand nine hundred one. So what does the code of hammurabi say. Many of the laws are examples of what is known in latin as lex talionis which is a law where the punishment is similar to the crime. You might know better as an eye for an eye. For example law one hundred ninety six states quote if a man destroy the eye of another man they shall destroy his. I if one break a man's bone they shall break his bone unquote however the rules were different depending on what social class. You're in for example. I didn't read the entirety of law. Ninety six just now the rest of it is as follows quote if one destroy the eye of a freeman or break the bone of a freeman. He shall pay won gold meena if one destroy the eye of a man slave or break a bone of a man slave. He shall pay one half his price unquote so the social status of the victim of a crime was a consideration in the law. If some of this sounds familiar. That's because it's very similar to the laws that are in the bible in the book of leviticus the code of hammurabi was written well before the book leviticus so it's quite possible if not probable that some of the laws from leviticus were adopted from babylonian laws the final version of leviticus was written after the jewish babylonian exile. So it's in fact very possible. There are laws in the code deal with commerce divorce rent liability and even medical malpractice there even laws dealing with contracts and the issuing of receipts. It's true that most of the laws are of a rather brutal. If x than wide variety with punishments ranging from drowning burning severing hands gouging out is that cetera. Most of these type of laws are no longer on the books in most countries. Obviously however there are some surprisingly forward thinking laws for something that was written down thirty seven hundred years ago for example law one hundred forty nine states quote. If this woman does not wish to remain in her husband's house then he shall compensate her for the dowry that she brought with her from her father's house and she may go unquote that is basically an ancient version of no fault divorce. However there was one concept that was in the code of hammurabi which was revolutionary and is still with us today. That is the concept of being innocent until proven guilty. In fact these are the very first law's written down in the code. Here are the first three laws in the code of hammurabi quote law one if anyone in snare another putting a ban upon him but he cannot prove it then let he that ensnared him be put to death law to if anyone bringing accusation against a man and the accused goto the river and leap into the river if he sink in the river his accuser shall take possession of his house but if the river prove that the accused is not guilty and he escaped unhurt then he who had brought the accusation shelby put to death while he who leapt into the river shall take possession of the house that had belonged to his accuser law three if anyone bringing accusation of any crime before the elders and does not prove what he has charged you shall if a capital offence charged put to death unquote so basically they had really harsh perjury laws and they made it really hard to pass frivolous lawsuits. So while i don't think anyone would really wanna live under the code of hammurabi today. It's an important part of humanity's legal history old hammer. Arby's two hundred and eighty two law's written in stone with a very first step in creating a system which has led to the one hundred and seventy five thousand two hundred and sixty pages of the united states code of federal regulations today

"How do you balance that self confidence with you know like hey i know what i'm doing and i trust myself to make the right decisions with other people saying you shouldn't be doing it like that or you need to be doing it like this. How do you how. How does that battle look within yourself. This is a matter of building your circle knowing. Who's in your circle and in acknowledging the fact that. Hey there's a lot of things that i know and i'm confident and but there are a lot of things i don't know as well but that's why have my coach. That's why. I have a strength and conditioning coach in the dietitian. All of these other people and you literally app to lean on them but sometimes things just go wrong in two thousand fifteen on a world championship and lex lapped and ended up sprawled on the side of the pit. His tights were ripped up. His elbow was mashed up and usually his guide. Wesley claps when lex is running towards the pit to let him know when it's safe to leap but this time the claps echoed in the stadium or maybe they just got drowned out by the noise of the crowd. Lex thought that he had missed his shot but it turns out he had one more try so he jumped and ended up winning the gold medal. What happened how do you know when you've made a mistake. You know you suggested that you know okay if you found a team member who doesn't who isn't right. How do you deal with. Like i know for myself. I'm terrible at that. I will hold onto a bad decision. Just because it's almost inertia is going to keep me there rather than just being like no. I'm going to stop this now. And i'm going to move forward. Where are you in that continuing. It's hard it's definitely hard. A lot of stems from at least for me is not wanting to know. You don't want to hurt anybody's feelings. Or make them feel like they're inadequate or make them feel as though the work that they've done has been Not as good or not as useful so building up. The courage to be open and honest is very important being vulnerable. That's huge and i think that on a lot of ways to you if you built your circle up in a way that these are individuals who genuinely care for you when you're vulnerable. You put your thoughts in an ideas out there. I think it also gives those around you permission to do the same approach clearly paying off and twenty nineteen at the world paralympics championship in dubai. Likes one yet another gold medal and he broke a seventeen year championship record. Do you have any thoughts on what will replace the role of sport in your life. You've been an athlete a professional athlete for a long time. And it's part of your identity in all aspects of psychological. Well being the physical well-being the public persona the private self. All of those things are bound up within your identity as an athlete. But you know this too shall pass. Yeah so i started a speaker business probably year and a half ago. So i've been doing that. Which has been a lot of fun. A wrote a book last year and that released in april. I think that after. I'm done with sport. I'll certainly continue to roam business and continue to speak. I don't enjoy myself in a eight to five job. And certainly nothing wrong with that. But i think that for the past sixteen seventeen years. I've literally been doing this since i was a teenager. Tell me a bit about myles. Munroe and how you discovered him. Mouths monroe is. He's a lot of things he's a he's a he's a businessman. He's a speaker philanthropist. I stumbled upon him. Because i had a Mrs sherman is someone who i've known since i was three years old. She's basically besides my mom she's been through the entire joining with me in life and she's a transition counselor She's she's pretty phenomenal. And i'll never forget we were. I'm not sure where we were coming from. But whenever i go back home to raleigh north carolina will find time to to meet up or go out to eat. And i wanna say we were sitting in a car and somehow she randomly asked me. Have you ever heard of miles monroe. I'm in my rome or something. Oh man mr said. I should look myles munroe. Let me check this dude out. So i'll get on youtube and immediately. I'm listening to the titles of different videos. When i choose to click on. He had one called like right. People need visions and dreams and is like an hour and a half long in house ministers powerful and here. Of course we're talking about the vision of not exactly foresight or a strategic planning or just an imagining of who you are not physical eyesight not vision in the biological sense right. Yeah literally what is it that you see for your life. Where do you see beyond the horizon. The your ability to see things before they exist. And i remember asking my friend. Is it possible to have a mentor in not actually meeting this person in real life because he died he died not long. You discovered him right. Yeah maybe a year. He died in a in a plane crash and asked when i went on online. That's when i knew the magnitude of of who he was just from other people like barack obama was talking about him and the td jakes of the world and all like just a ton of different people. I'm like wow okay mentioned. He's a pastor right. He's also a speaker so he knows how to use his voice. Can you describe that for me. His voice is very much just ending. When you hear him you listen. He knows how to use his voice as an instrument. He knows when to put more emphasis on certain words he knows when to back off and be a more subtle or soft spoken and it makes the presentation really is almost like an experience. The word vision here as described it does have a double meaning and you said that the first things that really pulled you in you tripped in to his world. Use the word vision. Do you think that was an important aspect of how how you related to him. So for example if he used the word dreams or possible selves. Do you think that that would have been as much of a resonance for you. The video that really drew me to him you know. He talks about vision any talks. About how if it's something that you you really believe in than knew that visions should guide your actions daily. That's what really caused me to gravitate towards him and say that because when i had lost my sight. Nfl isolated in outside of quote unquote normalcy. If you will the one thing that bridge that gap in brought me back to reality is that everything centers around vision you. You create a plan. A strategy work relentlessly to bring that into fruition and again he just breaks down and makes it so simple in in especially using example of athletics. I want to win a gold medal so it just makes sense to have that discipline to go down to train every day having that discipline the eat the appropriate things to make sure that you're staying nourished or replenish than allowing your muscles to to have the right things.

"Guest today is lex. Gillette and i am a paralympic athlete competing for team usa. I am currently in chula vista california. Which is about twenty minutes. South of downtown san. Diego lex is a blind paralympics champion. In the long jump category he is the current world record holder in this field. He won the gold medal for long jump and the last paralympics championship which was in two thousand and nineteen in dubai. He's also a motivational speaker and a singer songwriter. Like screw up. in raleigh. north carolina had a really good childhood. I would say prior to me. Lose my site. I was very active kid. Mom and i pretty much. It was the two of us moms single-parent and she had me involved in a lot of different activities played recreational baseball and i learned how to swim. I wasn't swimming competitively but glasses naked. I can hold my own will run into the cannonballs not other stuff into the water. My mom she would take me to the park and we walk a lot of places. My mom is visually impaired also I experienced site loss at an early age. I had actually come home from school and that night. That's when i started noticing that i was i was losing my sight randomly out of the blue. How we. I was at that particular time house seven. Just a little fella. Do you remember what it was that you can. I don't know what the nature of your site loss. And the sort of degeneration how quickly it happened or even sort of what it looked like it was lights are blurry hearts reflection in the mirror. Things were looking faint will blurry there were a lot of ways kind of disfigured a little bit and the next day we went to the doctor and After an examination the said i needed to have an emergency operation because all suffering from retinal detachments. I've heard stories of retinal detachments and how terrifying they are just simply because you know it happened so fast and it's painless isn't it. It's not painful. Experience guests a total like a flip at a light switch. Will everything looks fine. One minute in a few minutes later man. This is totally different. Once you noticed it was it back and forth. It was a gradual decrease. So i wanna say from that point up until i was basically like eight years old over the next year. I had ten operations to try to fix the issue in it was go in everything would be fine. The operation seem successful. I will be able to see for three or four weeks or so. And after that time i we'll get blurry again and each time it will get worse than time before in terms of excruciating. I think the first one two three four maybe operations. You're you're pretty optimistic in thinking that it's going to work in. You're going to be able to to see clearly again. You won't have to worry about going to the doctor anymore. And then you get to the latter part of the ten eight nine ten in. I think that i had subconsciously. Gotten to the point. Where i this is going to be reality and my need to figure out what's going to be next. How are we going to do this. And then after the tenth one. The doctors confirmed that with. Hey there's nothing else. We can do the likelihood of you. Being blind is pretty high. That's heavy for seven eight year old for you but also there's there's something else that's going on at that time. Which is your becoming a social creature rain and all of this going into surgery and coming out and recovery and all of that kind of thing is disrupting your social life man. That's a really good question. I think the challenge at that time is trying to make that transition because this yet can you prepare for those types of things because again to your point. You're trying to figure out life at that time you making friends. And the average kid isn't probably as in dealing with something like the magnitude of losing their sight so they're just just trying to learn learn about their friends and their environment and how to navigate traverse. Do life gradually like says he just got used to this new reality and so did his friends and his cousins they were empathetic about it and naturally a little curious but they didn't treat him any differently always included him in their adventures and soon lex learn to visualize things around him he would assemble a kind of scratch pad image of his environment to be able to get safely around. He ran outside. He built a tree. House even learned to roller skate and throughout his mother was a crucial source of support. One stories. I love to hear my mom talk about is. She said that she was in our living room. And she was like praying or meditating. And i run up to her tapper mom. I need to learn how to read dots and she says that when i had told her that at that point it was okay. This is confirmation that my son understands it. He gets it in knows that this is this is life. this is reality. This is the path that we're going to go down from narrow. It was her being able to get out there and do everything possible to make sure that i would have everything. I'll need to be independent and self-sufficient move forward. A single mama encouraged abo-. When did you realize your mother was a fierce. Probably i would say going into once. I got to the age while really understood what was going on. I knew that there were these. Iep meetings individualized education plans. And so in these i. p. meetings mom she would go in there in in pretty sure. There are many times where she had to fight tooth and nail to ensure that. I got this piece of technology or a. Have this book in braille or. I had teachers who were going to set the same standards and expectations that she did. I think that she was relentless. In that fact in was very much listened this is this is the environment and the atmosphere that that he resides in. When he's here. My house. And i want this to be consistent across the board is an incredibly physical thing and especially the kind of thing that you're doing where you are running hell for leather in that direction and you can't see so. Can you talk a little bit about the experience of learning what your body did in your boundaries were and weather. Sport was part of that renegotiation. The beauty of my situation is that i was active prior to losing my sight and after i did finally.
