UK government under pressure for COVID-19 strategy

"Emergency covid downs across the north of England to put the division between Westminster and the rest made Steph into shot relief. Mass journalists voters across the North voicing their anger being dictated to as city leaders discovered happening towns through front pages, twitter blogs. According to Lisa Nanday, the government doesn't even know where weakness and a new report by End Child poverty was just came out says that even before the pandemic child poverty was rocketing in the north and Midlands eight of the ten. Hardest hit areas is England less the union fracturing. Alex Scotland Wales Northern Ireland each have their own approaches to covert the government is trying to centralize control of England even though English, cities and regions were desperate for the more path more local strategies has that approach failed? Is it going to have to be more more regional? I think I don't think it's a one ONS official question. For instance, when it comes to things like testing trays I, think to have a national overarching. Sort of strategy is a disaster because obviously local people will know how to do that better. But when it comes to for instance. You know. Contagion rules. I think collaboratively in simplicity of the message is so key to their success that having a sort of different set of rules complicated rules depending on one postcode or another I think that will fall down I. I can't see that looking. I'm Scott this perceived as doing much better than England, and Cave in Wales to the extent. Are. They really doing better. Do they just have? To they have better messaging that Nicholas Sturgeon is just somebody is more trustworthy Boris Johnson. Better messaging is part of doing better. Possibly one of the key banks. I had to look at a fairly comprehensive study by the Center for Constitutional Change that looked at the totality of what we loosely termed as the first wave and found a covert destroyed trajectories peaked sooner in both Scotland and Wales and came down foster. So one could say that national OAKTON, which came too late for England came even more disastrously nights from Scotland and Wales. But death rates were significantly above national average for England and consistently. Wales and Scotland so I, think yes they have objectively done better. I had Frank Cultural Boys on the Today program saying he actually missed springs national lockdown lockdown gold because the whole country was in the same boat. Matt downs are driven by local infection rates but they all currently in the north I'm is this crisis sort of making the relationship between national local government, the north and the south worse or at least more more strained yeah. Undoubtedly I mean he's also contains enormous opportunities in some ways for Metro Mas- in the North it's interesting that you've seen. You've seen the London Meh. Saudi con his authority has really diminished because he's been basically take files funding in which he greatly depends is being held. So tightly in could be manipulated so much by central government that he doesn't have as much leeway as he used to. Conversely in the north, they know that they can They can basically demand certain things in exchange for cooperation about Kobe measures. So this puts the whole metro messing I mean previously, they were seen as you know, a Nice Democrat Nice Democratic Nice to have but not something that had genuine power, and now of course, because of covid they do it's also worth. Mentioning that Johnson himself has no real idea think of how to hold north-and-south together. If you read his conference speech last week, the only mention of the North was north London in the context of a cultural jibe, the only mention of Scotland and Wales where in the context of wind, power. he really doesn't think about this stuff any session he hasn't given any attention to how to negotiate this new difficult and fragile relationship a rope, the prominence of some of these regional mez Andy Burnham Steve. Rotherham. that. Make the case for a larger. Merrill based system in this country when you labor introduced mayors lately took on in some places and then and then Nelson others. But you think they'll be more appetite for these figures. I mean it's it's it's hard to say because there wasn't a great dealer appetite for them when they were introduced I suspect because of their dynamics that was thought to see here the sort of purchase pull dynamics with the man's the big regional setting themselves up as defenders of particular cities or city regions against the hostile government. That's a great dynamic building, your legitimacy with voices building a profile, and it may well be the other places. Look at this and think well, I'd rather like to have an undefined and in my case, my sanity or Steve Rotherham because at the Reimann way rose again knocks I've by government, but there's no one in our corner as I think he could.

Like, it was just for him to talk about we saw each other with our shirts off that was. That was the substance that happened. So you missed nothing if you hear. True but the guy says, of course, can't tell you anything. Well, of course, don't book yourself then Chris Well, he gave us a little sneak peek at the bachelor season because he said that he was there at location and he says he's at the in the Bachelor bubble right now he looks like he's yeah he he said there are four seasons where he is.

"Off It's time for another installment of Sea Hunt. It's still alive. And today we're going back to season 2 episode 21 for cave diving cave diving Premier package on May 24th 1959 in this episode. Mike is working with a geologist George Brian who is searching for uranium in an underwater cave. George has been doing his diving with his wife Susie up until now but needs Mike helped to explore further and do more work. They're diving off the boat Olympia with its Captain pops. Mike and George hop in and swim down with her watertight geiger counter. Mike has a doubles and George's in a single tank as they approached the cave. They put the ear pieces from the geiger counter into their ear and they take out the probe Mike's off the Geiger counters chattering like magpies. All of a sudden things start to shake Mike is spinning around. George is at the cave entrance. It's an underwater landslide. When all the turbulence is over, there's a huge Rock blocking the entrance to the cave and George is trapped inside under a pile of rocks. Mike shines his light and injured signals back. Mike can't budget Iraq. So he heads back to the surface. He says he has less than an hour before Susie becomes a widow. Mike tells pops. He needs the ship-to-shore radio to call the pier and they need to bring out some big hooks to pull away the Rocks. He's talking really fast. George only has 46 minutes left now. He tells Pops that it's real bad. Now they're desperately scanning the surface for the help from the pier the boat rounds the point and gets there within 14 minutes Susie is on board in her scuba gear bag ready to help George is down to thirty minutes Suzy insists on helping Mike despite his objections. Now Mike and Susie make it to the caves entrance and struggle to get the anchors attached to the large Rock. Finally. They get them in place and Mike's ends up a flare for the boat to pull the rock the boat strains when suddenly the anchors Breakaway failure Susie is desperate trying to get into the cave. Mike is trying to calm her down and he said she has to be rough with her in the commotion Susie's air hose gets fouled and they have to Buddy breathe to the surface. Susie climbs on board the hooks won't work. She's crying pops is trying to comfort her. What will Mike do now? Here's where things really get interesting. Well, Mike just happens to have some Dynamite on board just in case you know, pop says that's kind of risky. Mike says there's no other option but like pops was in the Seabees in World War Two and says they use Gophers to carry a line through a pipe. So they concoct a plan to use a fish to thread the line off The Rock. Well, it just so happens. There's a barrel on Deck with a live fish might takes out the fish and ties a line around its tail and heads back down to the cave with the fish house and a speargun. He checks to see if George is still alive looks at his watch time is running out. He lets the fish go into the cave ties the fishing line to the heavier line and tries to log the fish back with his light like tries to grab the fish. It's too fast time for the speargun. He's got one shot takes dead aim, and our hero fish is a goner my calls in the fish pulls the line through and now has the heaving line around the rock ties the bowl and shoot a flare to the surface and Lifeboat cranks up its engine. Finally The Rock is pulled from the entrance my crushes in freeze George and brings him to the surface. Mike yells out. I got him and pop lets out a big Yahoo back on the boat. George and Susie are reunited. Mike is lounging now. They say George's leg will be okay. They're talking about the fish that saved George Susie says that were fish was Mike Nelson. As the episodes ends, they're talking about pops idea from when he was in the Navy and Pop's final line is I wasn't in the Navy. I was just the Seabees. Hm wonder what my CB friends would think of that now you might recognize George if you're of a certain age, that would be Herbert Anderson better identified with Dennis the Menace his father Henry Mitchell. Well, that was certainly not what we think of when we think about cave diving using a fresh to thread a line around Iraq is a little out there but if anyone can do it, it would be Mike Nelson on Sea Hunt. off

I think it's more likely to be high single digits but that's still as spike of numbers terms probably a million, two, million half additional people who are either unemployed or underemployed, and now will be a real headwind to growth not just in twenty twenty one.

American And United Airlines Announce Layoffs As Federal Payroll Support Runs Out

"Big layoffs today at two of the nation's biggest airlines, American and United are notifying 32,000 employees that they are being furloughed as federal payrolls support runs out. Congress in the White House appear to be inching closer to an agreement on another massive pandemic relief package. But as NPR's David Shaper reports, the airlines say they needed it yesterday. Airline passenger traffic is down close to 70%. Since the start of the pandemic, and with fewer people flying airlines are hemorrhaging tens of millions of dollars a day. The cares act gave them $25 billion in direct payroll support. Allowing them to pay employees through September 30th. That was yesterday. Today People are devastated. Sarah Nelson heads the Association of Flight Attendants, the largest flight attendants union. They're looking at not having a pay check to pay rent. They're looking at not having healthcare. In some cases, we've got to Aviation workers who are both on the furlough list to live in the same home spouses or partners and kids who count on them. Both United and Americans say they'll recall workers if Congress provides more relief money soon. Other airlines, including Delta and Southwest say they had enough employees take early retirement or incentives to leave. So they won't need to furlough workers right now, but they could in a couple of months,

We've been telling Congress for months that this would happen, But now we're here. The problem is that this is just today. There's no backstop now because thes requirements of the airlines for no layoffs are gone. And so as we continue with only 15% of the revenue from a year ago Is all due to Corona virus and the impact of that there are likely other layoffs coming and we're just the tip of the spear because for every aviation job we support one and 14 jobs in this country, So this is going to start a real tsunami of job loss and it's It's just It's devastating.

Talking to Your Kids About Sex With Shafia Zaloom

"She fears aloom welcome to the show. Thank you so much for having me. Yes. Of course. I'm excited that you're here because I have been on this sort of obsessive track lately around I mean for for many years I've been doing this. You've been do in doing this for longer than I. Have I think but I've been doing about fifteen years and it was mostly you know educating talking to adults who want to realize is that now I have a lot of young people, my life three nieces who are teens and friends, kids age and. In the last five ten years. Wow there. There's no sex education. I realize how similar the questions that people are asking me that the young people are asking me adolescents about sex are very similar to what adults are asking, and also a lot of people calling in listening this show because now they have teenagers and they want to know what do we do? How do we talked about Saxon problem because? If they parents never learned how do we actually talk to our kids about sex I know you've made this your life's work. and. So Sheffield tell me a little about yourself like what's your? What's your background? How'd you get into sex education? we you know I always had to have really positive relationships in my life and that made all the difference for me in a really quality education. and. So I was a social worker when I first got out of school and was working with. Kids in treatment centers as an alternative to incarceration who had a lot you know who are wrestling with a ton of issues at all really revolves around relationships or you know the type of relationships they had had as they were growing up and after several years of that realized, they really needed to get into more preventative work versus so much inventive work so that I could sustain my own life and start a family and do all those things and because relationships in education had always been such a strong force in my life I chose that path and started I. Guess It's been. Twenty five years now and that sort of what took me to this place? Yeah, I got it. So tell me how do we approach talking to teens about sex when a lot of parents are feeling that they don't have the information themselves that it's still taboo and shameful I mean. There are a lot of really great resources out there I think part of it is there's just so much information and so much about sexuality that you really have to know where to find them and I think that a sex positive approaches we all strive for like we all want to raise our. Kids to be good people of positive enriching relationships yet romantic as well as sexual ones and so I think it really is twofold I. The information is out there find the medically accurate information from credible resources and showed that with your kid in developmentally appropriate ways and you're educating yourself along the way it is. Okay. no-one taught us this you know either so we are pioneers and you know if you can talk to your friends and say you know I, don't really know how to do this. How are you doing this and source each other to create a sense of solidarity typically as? Parents you know we we tend to lady to do this together. Especially if our kids are younger, we do that really well as they get older teenagers tend to want their independence and we tend to not have as many opportunities to connect with each other but we should find those places where you can connect with each other. You know test the waters and see how open and comfortable those folks artist say like, how do we do this? How can we communicate consistent messages that aligned with our own personal family values, but also give kids the information they need to keep themselves in their friends safe. And with your kids in those conversations, you're really it's the value of these small victories are collecting moments your scaffolding this over time it's not one big giant talk. It's little ones over longer periods of time and it's OK. In fact, it's a tremendous gift to be able to say to your kid to role model healthy vulnerability in an effort to connect in an authentic way. To say I don't know, but this is really important and sometimes the most important conversations are the hardest ones to have, and so let's find out this information together and figure this out in a way that works with all the things we've been teaching all along. Now for some parents, kids suddenly start screaming I'm running from the room you know whatever it is I, don't want do. Don't learn. They might happen to have equality health program. It's one. Nelson say but I I I know everything I need to know don't worry about it. Learning learn it in school. The thing is, is that parents are absolutely the primary sexuality educator in life It can't be they're not the only one that they're certainly the primary one and your the consistent person that they are going to be connected to throughout their life, and so those people who teach them you know education relationship, education, educational those things they're gonNA, come and go. They'll have an impact. It's a huge blessing to have that resource. But really you're the consistent will run and their ethical aspects to sex education that like those family values that are essential to it only you can teach those to your kid. So parenting adults are really important in that role.

Interview with Khalil Zahar, Founder of FightCamp

"Guys that's Martin from shape. We're here right now in San Francisco Studio and unconnected to aid today on with the founder of fights cab Saha. Could you why don't you deduce yourself? It'll. Yeah. Awesome. First of all, thanks a lot for receiving me on the PODCAST. Martin. So my name is Lil- I'm the CO founder, CEO Camp and weekly started Fi Kim about a year and a half ago. So. If I is an interactive corn boxing gym, it comes with everything you need to start boxing and actually follow videos that are built by the best trainers of all the west coast they all fighters they all have obviously a tremendous fight expands but they're also great fitness instructor general for the listener on on our show that has never seen. It's what should be should be mentioned punching back and a pair of gloves. So what be? Yes. So it comes with a free standing bag. The best standing back on the market with a pair of didn't win leather gloves made an approved by fighters with a workout Matt, a pair of with be called quick grabs and the special sauce is who? Motion trackers that you put into quick wraps Ma and detract your hands a thousand times per second trek speed and my my punches. How many punches I'm doing per minute of what should I expect? Yes they tracked the type of country throw the measured the speed of the bunches basically build your output profile from one round to the other. What about impact? Not The impact is really the velocity. Okay. The of your hand and which actually throwing and how does like the coaching look like you were mentioning that you have coaches of all over the place and should I imagine like watching them like on my TV or iphone ourselves for me? Yes. So it comes with an APP you can the. Myriad on a large screen TV or you can watch the workouts on an IPAD whatever you prefer, and then from there, it's Kinda like all you can eat buffet. Really. So if you're advanced, you can jump straight into the advanced workouts right away we go and deep into the complex combinations. We'd practice footwork and the workouts very intense. Otherwise, it can literally start at the very first time. You've you're you're throwing your first punch. So we have what we call the prospect where it takes you from zero boxing experience teaches you to six inches and then at the end of the prospect path which. is about a four weeks program you actually know how to six months probably you know how to stand you know the basics Balkan it's mostly regular boxing the offer classes for a time boxing mma Nelson actually were focusing on boxing at the moment but we're having a lot of internal conversations around providing kickboxing as well as a kickboxing in multi, really as a as a an expansion and so so who's like you you're right now is it really like what you just mentioned on the beginners or is it like somebody that's been into boxing all their life or hundred, seventy, four for you Guys. Yeah, it's really seventy five percent beginners, but it's actually very interesting to see like a lot of them are now not beginners anymore So you know we kind of took a bunch of them. You know through the program you get to see videos online and on the social media and they're getting very proper form on have the basics of boxing. Of course, they don't have the in ring experience right visit steely it's a home virtual experience. Yeah. You can't really compete against somebody else right right. So Yeah, you actually can compete but on up put and precision you can't compete on. Actual defense offense. Of course, you're not going to get him. You know and does like a class look like, is it one on one coaching tailored to me or is it like a big class like pedal tone style or yet is really a group class? So it's you'll have usually the video stream will be divided into not that it's divided on the screen per se but vary between having the camera centered on the coach, and then you're getting bureau that is very dynamic. The camera moves around in the class and focuses on the participants taking the class live at our studio in Newport beach. For for me, you know like me having like an iphone like my supposed to put up my iphone like somewhere like on a on a counter, and then look at it while I'm like punching out on my back or how should I mention it? Yeah. That's a very good question like there's not a lot of people use it only with the with the iphone unless they're traveling aren't as they're actually using it in a gym gym or their apartment Jim the vending most people digging each day my cable upload, the Stream directly on on a big screen. TV. Your accent. Yeah. Oh we have a portion of our users. We actually are doing it on the night pat about Apple TV, that works as well Yeah. You can mirror exactly. You can use apple TV to mirror the the stream directly on a big screen TV as well. That's definitely the best experience you're getting very loud sounds and music. You hear the voice really really properly, the nose of the bag doesn't supplant the voice of the trainer lifts. Your stats are displayed very big for you. So like you're really into it, you feel like you're you're being tracked in. Really part of a group experience and it's both IOS and android os mostly s right now. Saying. It's only on ISLA, its and so why are people doing it Do they just WanNa, get a workout and they are not happy with you know like an experience like Peleton or maybe the half a pedal tone and want to supplement it with something else or do they actually want to get into boxing learn those skills forward let's say self defense. Yeah it's interesting. So. Like calm, we have two types of customers. The first type of customers really just will always intrigued boxing They want to do it because it's a work of that Jesse get something out of it even though you would stop working out after a year like you would still acquire the skills and those are self defense skills. You know a lot of people are mystified by you know. How to actually throw a punch and Hudson do properly. So that was one of our customers the other portion of because there is actually coming from the idea that boxing is the best workout to get in shape and the discovered the fundamentals and techniques through fight Cam. So the first reason they joined is for fitness purposes really assuming that boxing is the best workout out there the. Other portion come straight because they want boxing, but they can't attend to have a busy lifestyle. Their young parents hitting the gym is increasingly harder would a busy schedule? so that's the other proposition that they really resonate with and

Dodgers vs. Padres is the new high-stakes rivalry MLB needed

"Exciting team the hottest team in baseball right now at the Padres going up against the best team in baseball right now, the Dodgers and they're playing for the division, and it's really chippy. And we're coming down to the last 10 games of a wild wild year. That's why I shouldn't have to say so. I may put it another way. Like if you've ever been to a music festival, then you know how there are multiple bands to play at the same time, but on different stages, right? So the headliners get the realestate. The artists who were printed up in a smaller fought on the flyer our summer off to the side playing with smaller crowd, But if you've ever been to a music festival, you know that the smaller bands off to the side sometimes put on the better show. Sometimes you want to be off to the side and you want to see what's going on over there. Last night, I could make the argument the Dodgers and Padres put on a better show than the NFL doubleheader. When they were playing back to back on the main stage. If you have not been paying attention, then maybe you did not know last night was in fact. An unstoppable force meeting an immovable object. The unstoppable force Now are the red hot Slam Diego Padres. They welcomed the immovable object. The seven time defending NL West Champ L. A Dodgers to Petco Park. San Diego, Riding an MLB best seven game heater, the Dodgers holding onto a 2.5 game lead in the division with their ace, Clayton Kershaw on the bump. Kirsch has been nothing short of vintage this year. Maybe the villa is down a bit, but it doesn't matter because this dude has been spinning Uncle Chuck. Slinging a slide piece to the tune of a sub to E. R. A five wins and a career best whip, and for five innings last night, he mowed right through the analyst, second best lineup. Padres. Righty D. Nelson lament matched him the entire way, though, halfway through that game, we were watching an old school pitchersduel. Their courage was barely getting the better off. And then things went from somewhat respectful and cordial to extremely chippy with a single swing in the bottom of the sixth. Game was won Nothing at that point Dodgers and then Padres centerfielder tranq regime. Finally got to Kershaw and tied it up with this Moonshot the deep right field for Christian. It's

"Will <hes> and he wanted to find the the answer to this discontent this dissatisfaction this suffering and so he didn't get it in from those two grew so he decided to try sediq ascetic practices extremists citizen <hes> to the point where the pali canon says that you could see the his ribcage. I mean every single bone in his body. He was eating like one. You know one drop of rice a day kind of thing and he was so weak. He almost drowned when he was in the in water and he finally realize moishe they get. What am i doing this is. This is not getting any any closer to what i'm looking for. It's not given me the awakening i want and so at that point he ate <hes> aw and he at that point discovered what he's what's called the middle way in other words. You don't overindulge you. Don't <hes> under you know nurse the body either just give it what it needs are not what it wants but what it needs so there's a balance so he found balances basically the point of the middleware and although there's a whole philosophy developed later on that idea about the middle way that was the point at this at this stage in his development and so then he's like okay i remember back when i was a kid i was sitting and i went into a a meditative state and i just relaxed extend observed and and there is a very tranquil feeling and and he said well what i'll do is i will meditate and i will sit down and meditate until i find release from suffering and that's what he did and the story goes that he went through a number of <hes> <music> <hes> difficulties in his meditation and in the <hes> middle of the night <hes> he woke up and was awakened and that awakening brought forth the basic foundations of buddhism now when i say buddhism you have to understand that that's really a misnomer you should say buddhism's <hes> because every time buddhism left india and went into another culture adapted the culture and changed so when buddhism went to china for an example that developed into chan buddhism john buddhism left china and went into japan and became zen buddhism <hes> john buddhism some went into korean became son buddhism so it's one of those things it it migrates and as it migrates it switches and absorbs the culture pitcher <hes> to such an astonishing degree and went to tabet for an example in tibet it absorbed the bond religion and became tibetan buddhism so really and it changes quite a bit actually if you if you study the the pali canon new study zan there's a lot of differences for an example <hes> but the there's the foundation and <hes> stephen bachelor. I like the way he called it. He called it. The alphabet or the syntax of the dharma and the syntax of the dharma has basically the four noble truths and the eightfold noble path <hes> and different aspects of that like dependent origination and things of this nature but i wanna just touch on those those four or or those four noble truths and the eightfold noble path today because that's gives you the background to <hes> buddhism so so buddhism basically has what's called the four noble truths <hes> stephen bachelor prefers calls at the four tasks <hes> but the pali canon actually has it as the four noble truths <hes> you could say it's the four wise insights into reality into the way it is is <hes> and those four are the suffering is part of life <hes> the awaken life that the cause of suffering is and i'm going to translate it literally thirst..

"Welcome to awakening i'm jim nelson for us today i wanna talk about what is knowledge so there's a branch of philosophy known as a pistol allergy pissed analogy is usually if you look it up is the fury of dowager the study knowledge and if you studied a pistol allergy at all you'll understand that 'em is they long contested issue of what is knowledge of what counts for knowledge 'em these standard definition of knowledge now this is justified tripoli's 'em and that's been kind of they standard definition of knowledge for many centuries dating back all the way till they classic philosophers and greek and rome justified true belief so the difficulty comes when a guy named getty or came up with several issues called the getty you're problems andy's problems indicate that in fact justified true belief may not be knowledge foreign example see in the this there's obviously multiple layers to the difficulty so if it is if i have a watch end hey wall clock and they both stop keeping time at eight o'clock and i look at them both at eight o'clock and i assume that it's eight o'clock do i have a justified drew believe dr damage so this isn't necessarily example the a was given but it does bring up the difficulty okay if i just happened to be justified i think i'm justified because i'm looking at my no risk watch in the wall clock and they both happened just say the correct time time it just happens to be eight o'clock the justification there seems it's justified to me but it isn't justified because those are accurate timepieces it just the happenstance that had happened to fall at eight o'clock then i looked at it if it was eight oh five and i looked at it and looked and saw it with eight o'clock and thought it was eight o'clock is the eight fired it would be not eight justified true believe it will be a false belief and so the accident of being eight o'clock when i look at the time pieces doesn't change the fact that if not an accurate measure of time so justified drubel if so that's one of the issues with that these other is the idea of true belief okay here they pretty much say that justified means that you have good reasons for believing it true means that the belief he is in fact correct it's the way it is so in that definition of true there are saying that it is the way it is and this is where my skepticism comes then my skepticism says the in this sense nothing is known with absolute certainty more very little very very very little i think therefore i some kind of situation might cause to doubt it means you're still thinking but beyond that nothing objector world is absolutely certain you could be a brain of at t is a common philosophical example or you could use they matrix 'em he could be like neo in the matrix you know how would you know if you're in a computer simulation sure that if it's the simulation is done correctly you wouldn't know which means than that everything that you believe would be falls everything so true to to to know something is certainly true is really not possible we can only know was a high degree of probability something is true so the say justified true believe it something becomes untenable unworkable unusable 'cause there's no way will ever know whether it's true for certain so justified truly fails on they getty you're accounts and it fails they definition definition the truth accounts so what do we used instead how do we define knowledge if you're going to define knowledge if you're going to deal with knowledge what do you call it if you eliminate that justified true belief what is the alternative and this is the one i i've struggled with this before i for a while i held to a justified highly probable belief or something some kind of an arrangement similar to that just because it matches more of the reality though we lou living but after much thought i i really come to the conclusion the best definition knowledge is justified reliable belief justified knowledge is justifiable reliable belief justified reliable belief and that just simply means that it's reliable means that it holds it doesn't mean it will hold in the future in there once it stops being reliable it stops being knowledge for example there was a time where we had really good reasons for believing that the world was stationary and the center of the universe we had really good reasons good observation or justified a that was a justified reliable believe because we had de visual evidence the sun rose in the east sat in the west the moon the stars all of that did the same so there's good reasons for believing that we didn't feel any movement i mean it back in the day if you got on a horse you'd feel the movement of the horse or if you walk you'd feel the movement of the walk or a few job do you feel the the motion of the jump so there is no reason to suspect that we're actually in motion we feel like we're in motion everything that we do we taurel we feel the motion motion why would that not why would we feel motion it was common sense obviously were the subtlety earth and it's the sun and the moon and the stars that a rise in setting so we had good is justified were justified and believe in it was reliable son kept coming up so it was knowledge people would say on that day i know the earth is the center of the universe so knowledge is how we used the term and if we're going to use terms today wouldn't make sense that have the match the way that we actually use them i mean we have things we have called knowledge that now are no longer knowledge newtonian physics one example was considered pretty solid now edge and then einstein came along and showed that in fact it was not knowledge so if it wasn't knowledge before was it knowledge i mean it's not knowledge now but we would consider knowledge before but when they were wrong so then there would be wrong knowledge which doesn't make any sense because how could you have wrong justified drew belief you can't because it would have to be a true believer therefore you just mislabeled acknowledge but it was never really knowledge so how do you know if you ever have knowledge if that's the case einstein physics might actually someday ceased to be quote unquote knowledge so say how on tenable it is how unworkable that definition of knowledge is so when you define knowledge as justified reliable belief than the reliability ceases the knowledge ceases you see it's built in that little wiggle room is built into the the definition of knowledge reliable ceased to be reliable now we know that's not knowledge to me it was of all the the de terms and definitions and struggles that i've seen with the term knowledge this is in fact v best definition that i've come up with and that i've seen is justified reliable believe so this is important enough pissed analogy for a number of reasons one of which could be helpful if you're gonna talk about something they have a good working definition the second is that definition has be apply in different situations so back in the day when we believe the earth was the center of the universe in observation matched it are own commonsense match did and there is no evidence to the contrary therefore justified reliable knowledge it was knowledge it was genuine knowledge it was reliable and then when a galileo leo and others a showed in fact that the earth is not the center of the universe but they were rotated around the sun it ceased to be dealt which it stopped being reliable evidence showed it unreliable and therefore it ceased to be knowledge before that it was knowledge after new evidence came in showed that it wasn't knowledge that follows the reliability factor and not true or not true true which is unverifiable in in the real world so reliable and not reliable actually happens certain truth never happens will never know the truth street through certain in this life of their objective world anyway will never know absolutely certain what is there isn't any objective world but we know it's reliable what actually holds true one holds true to the evidence and so justified reliable belief is knowledge i.

So one of the difficulties is tried to explain how Bodey Taoism is different from any number of religions and the best way that I can explain it is that Bodey Taoism is based upon scientific naturalism. So I guess the, the most important thing for me to do at this particular point is explained what Bodey Taoism or what's scientific naturalism is that bodied, how is amiss based on. So this is my definition of scientific naturalism scientific naturalism is the view that based on the evidence. The natural world is all there is, and that science is the best means of knowledge about this world. So I'm gonna read that again. Scientific natural is is of you that based on the evidence the natural world has all there is, and that science is the best means of knowledge about this world. So that's the basic meaning of scientific naturalism. That's what Bodey Taoism is based on, if you don't agree with scientific naturalism than Bodey Taoism is not for you. We follow the evidence. We file were science leads us. Now. There's some things I want to point out in this definition. Because when I talked to people about naturalism, they get confused. There's a difference between what's called philosophical naturalism and. Methodological naturalism, methodological naturalism is what science uses science basically brackets, supernatural claims, and simply studies. In other words, they don't look for supernatural answers, if they pop up another matter, they haven't, but if they did. That'd be another matter, but they're not looking for them because there's no evidence and no reason to look for the supernatural. Results. So methodological naturalism is what science use uses now in philosophy. We use naturalism in a different sense. We mean the natural all there is, and that can be verified. If anybody wants to search into I mean, you really have to basic positions, naturalism, the natural world is all there is supernatural, the natural world is not all there is those are really your only two options, either the natural world is all there is or it's not. Of course, there is the option of not believing in the natural world at all. But that's a whole nother ball of Bala wax. I mean, if you really can't help you, if you don't believe in the natural world. I often suggest people go into the room and smack themselves until they believe in the natural world. But you have to begin with the natural world and the evidence shows if you follow the evidence there is no evidence for the supernatural. So if you hypothesize the supernatural you're doing so outside of evidence outside of faith, and really are not interested in truth. You're interested in what you believe in other words, truth is no longer important. Your belief is what's important. And that Trump's evidence. In other words, you have faith, faith is except in a claim as true without evidence, and that will get you into all kinds of problems. I mean, literally there hundreds of thousands of different religions both now and throughout history, and no to actually agree. So which one is the right one. There is no right, one because you have no standard to decide which ones. Right. So one belief is a good as another. So you can't criticize anybody. If you believe in, if you. Operate on faith. Anything is true for you. Truth doesn't mean anything. So for me, you have to begin with you have to be done with scientific naturalism, if you don't you might as well just believe whatever your ancestors, believed or whatever, whatever you feel like believing. I mean it really truth is not important at that point, it's basically whatever you like. And that's what most people in spirituality. Do they go through in there, if they don't like their particular region, the born in, they kind of make their own, eclectic Lee? Pick this a little bit of that. And you know I like this Abboud ISM has a good thing over here. I'll take that I'll take a little Hinduism over there, all take a side of Judaism, little Kabbalah about some NAS descent. And oh, let's see. So it's like a smorgasbord you just you go to the dinner to the, the potluck of re. Religions debt and current and you just pick, whatever you want. Because truth doesn't matter because evidence doesn't matter. If evidence doesn't matter, the truth doesn't matter truth is the correspondence between thought and reality, and they'll the way you're gonna know there, if there's correspondences by the evidence, that's the only way not sub subjective feeling not some hunch, you have to have the evidence and by evidence. I mean verifiable evidence evidence that everybody can see if it evidence just for you. It's not evidence, so you have to start with scientific naturalism. Now, there's a couple of things I wanna point out in my definition scientific naturalism is not a. Bias? It's not a. Hypothesis. It's based on the evidence. There is no evidence for the supernatural there is evidence for the natural. That's like saying, okay, we're going to operate, our lives based upon the belief that there are no unicorns. And until there is evidence of unicorns, we're going to believe that there's no unicorns that seems pretty reasonable. Okay. It's the same thing, the natural world exist. Therefore, we're gonna work on the assumption the natural world exists until there's evidence of a supernatural, then if the evidence is, is sufficient, then will believe in the supernatural, but we are not going to jump into that. Unless there's good reason to believe so good, solid in pure ical objective verifiable evidence. So that's why I put in there based on the evidence. It's not just a, it's a presupposition based on the evidence. It's not just an unfair verifiable presupposition. It's a subset, and it's based upon the, the idea of autumn's razor, do not multiply entities beyond what is necessary. If your if all spiritual experiences can be explained by the natural. There is no new need for supernatural and that's my argument. There is no need for supernatural, mystical experiences can be explained by nature mysticism your connection and interconnection with the cosmos, we know that people who have experiences of one this with nature have the same essential one nece with nature that people have with one -ness of what they call God, but they don't understand that. God is an interpretation. It's not the experience the feeling of one. This is the experience. The interpretation is God nature. Those are. Interpretations. You have to separate the experience from the interpretation and all experiences can be explained under the interpretation of naturalism without reducing it to non meaning new understand. There's some people that want to reduce it to, to nothing, you know that it's just allusion. No, the experiences are real that feeling one. This is real. And we know from science that everything is interconnected. So it actually makes sense that we'd have these experiences. So again, we go back to scientific naturalism the natural world is all there is. And that science is the best means of knowledge about this world. This is important, please, listen carefully. I did not say science is the only means of knowledge about this world, just the best. Okay. Science is not the only way we know things. But a lot of the things we know outside of science is open for interpretation and is unverified will or not usually verified. So some of those things are true about nature and some of those things might not be true about this world, but is our best, most reliable most solid knowledge that we have, but not our only, and you have to understand that because this is where people, you know, misunderstand scientific naturalism love is not a is not an empirical thing. You can show by science. That doesn't mean that love is not true or real or an actual thing in the world. It is. But it's not verifiable by science. The actions may be, and we might be able to, to get into some neuro science and stuff like that. That to verify a mental state of, of love or something like this. But right now, we don't have the capacity to do that. But just because science can't verify it doesn't necessarily mean it's not true. What I'm saying is in the natural world has all there is and sciences, the best means of knowing about this world. That's all I'm saying. So now that means that there are number of truth claims that are made, and I would say, a truth claim is wrong under these seven circumstances. A truth claim is wrong if it is not..

"nelson" Discussed on Awakening with Jay Nelson Forrest

"Welcome to awaken in, I'm Jay Nelson forest today. I'm going to be talking about the wheel of the year. Now the wheel of the year is my version of it. There are several pagan versions of the wheel the year. The most common is within Wicca, the of course, have the winter and summer solstice and the spring, and fall equinoxes. And then they'll have the festivals between there. So usually end up with eight spokes on the wheel the year. So I'm going to share my version of the wheel the year and the body Taoist version of the wheel ear. So as you know, Bodey Taoism has if you bet listening to the podcast, or you've read my website, you'll that Bodey Taoism has eight wisdom traditions and so what we'd like to do. It was like to incorporate these wisdom traditions into a wheel of the year to help us to remember the different streams that helped give us it's ration-. They give us perspective on. There's eight different viewpoints that we can look at something from. And so what I'm gonna do is I'm gonna go ahead. Give you the dates and the traditions and then I'll give you a little cermony to perform on each of these days. So they match pretty closely to the, the wiccan or pagan wheel the year as far as dates, the only difference is that we're actually celebrating wisdom tradition during these things. So we'll go head start with the first one, which is December twenty fifth which is Christianity that seems pretty obvious that we've be celebrating since Christianity is one of the wisdom traditions. We'd be celebrated on December twenty fifth now of course of all the wisdom traditions Christianity's on that causes us the most difficulty because it's the least scientifically naturalistic of the wisdom traditions. But we interpret Christianity from a mythic standpoint, Richard character has a whole series of books on the mythic Christ and how crisis really can be interpreted as a myth and the history of Christ as a myth, and there's many things that grew up within Christianity, especially in the monastic traditions, that are helpful for a spiritual disciplines so we go ahead and incorporate those so December twenty fifth is the first and that is Christianity. The next is February second and on February second. We celebrate Gina sim and Jane ISM was a religion that was founded many years before Maha Veira, but Mahavir is the most. Current one in this was he was considered either just before the Buddha or contemporary with the Buddha during his time and Mahaveroo taught tune the main things is onto cut vodka, which is non absolutism that means there's many different ways to look at something, and we need to look at things from different viewpoints. And that's in fact, what this the traditions is about trying to look at things from different viewpoints. And the other thing is a his MMA, which is nonviolence is usually how it transit. I prefer to translate as non-harming. And that's we're the vegetarianism comes from is Janus and also Buddhism. But Jane ISM was much stronger on it, and then March twenty first is the celebration of Taoism and Taoism. We. Go back to philosophical. Dow Eliza the Dow day Jing and the original idea of Taoism, not so much the religious Taoism that turned lousy into a God. But more the philosophical aspects of Taoism all these traditions have difficulties with them. Otherwise, we'd be, you know, we'd be one of them. So please understand that every single one of these wisdom traditions. There is some aspect of either they add a God. They add the supernatural that an afterlife either in the form of heaven, hell, or rebirth reincarnation, or they completely eliminate the spiritual and none of these traditions, do, but humanism did eliminate secular humanism usually eliminates spiritual to spirituality. Altogether. And that might come under Confucianism is probably the closest to humanism, and we'd consider that part of that stream, so and Jane ISM than December twenty first Taoism, March twenty first and then maye Firth is epicure, Newsham epicurious had the fourfold cure, which is do not fear the gods. Do not fear death. What is good is easy to come by what his heart as easy to avoid June twenty-first would be Buddhism, and Buddhism, of course, is probably the for me one of the main traditions of practice. Its biggest problem is the idea of rebirth, the six realms and cosmic karma. Those are things that we don't accept in wouldn't accept and so. Buddhism would be unacceptable to a scientific naturalist, but there are elements within Buddhism that are acceptable, so June twenty first is Buddhism. I would also say that June twenty first since it's my birthday and I'm the founder of Bodey Taoism that it also is a celebration of Bodey Taoism and August. I is stoicism and stoicism is tradition that Zeno began tracing some of its roots back to Socrates giving it a particular flavor and stoicism is definitely an important tradition in cognitive behavior therapy as Buddhism is in mindfulness based stress reduction, and then September twenty twenty-first is Confucianism and Confucianism is a lot about the verb. Virtues and about. Being courteous in society and being respectful and things of this nature, about self cultivation and then Octo thirty I is paganism so paganism, of course, Tober thirty I is dean with all hallows eve, Sal Hain is called by them. And so we would actually the wheel of the fifth of the wheel the year actually matches on that day would match up perfectly with their highest day, which is, of course, signed so we have December twenty first being Christianity, February second Jane, ISM, March thirty or twenty first Taoism may, I epic unionism, June twenty-first Buddhism, August first stoicism September twenty first Confucianism October thirty first paganism, so that's the basic. We'll of the year the body douse Tweedle of the year, and then the simple ceremony that I recommend. And I'll go ahead and put this on the website. So if you want the d-actually script for this, I'll put it on the website and what it would be is. You basically the what you'd need is you need a candle and a grape juice, or, or something of this, this nature to drink, and what you do is you would sit maybe by yourself or if you're with the family, you can do it with your family on to do it for if it was just yourself, but the I can be we in these things. So what you do as you'd sit down. You'd say, I take a moment to remember the teachings of and you'd name the wisdom tradition. The next one is Buddhism, saw us Buddhism, which is June. Twenty first I take a moment to remember the teachings of Buddhism. And the light it gives me and then I would light the candle. Then I would say I'm moment of reflection that I would say. I drink in honor of Buddhism may use his teachings wisely on my path of awakening. And then I would drink the juice. And then you can have a meal, leaving the candle lit during the meal beginning with, like an affirmation such as I give thanks to all beings, helping this food to our table and vowed respondent, turn to those in need with wisdom, and compassion. Let me mindfully and then after the meal, you blow out the candle. And that'd be a simple way of remembering the day. The other thing you could do is either watch a YouTube video on Buddhism. Read a Wiki pedia article on Buddhism, or some kind of a short introduction on what Buddhism is just to remind yourself of the basic teachings the four noble truths. The eight fold noble path things of the state should remind you of the Buddha end the teachings of the Buddha, now known to us as Buddhism in one of our wisdom traditions. So that is the wheel. Of the year for Bodey Taoists, and it would help. I think to kind of help you incorporate these things in your life to kind of get a, a rhythm to cow harmonize with nature. So if you want, like I said, I'll, I'll put that stuff in the show notes, so you'll have the script for that and also incorporate the give you the dates to. So if you go over to j Nelson forest dot com, and you'll look for the wheel of the year, you'll be able to find this with the simple ritual in order for you to participate. And this is a very simple way to practice your body Taoism other ways of practice and of courses through mindfulness meditation. Loving kindness meditation being charitable to others, you know stoic practices are also acceptable, and some of the other practices are acceptable. Just remember that all practices are based on basically there have to be based upon reason evidence and natural. So we want to make sure that we're thinking critically about what we're doing. We want to base it on naturalism way, what to base it upon evidence in to look at the results it's having their life. So when you start a spiritual practice, you know, take note, even if you have to do it, you know, in, like a little note pad or something, the effects of before, and after your meditation or spiritual practice, whatever you're doing and see if it's making a difference in your life. If it's not you might not be doing it, right. You might need more. -struction in. And maybe it's something that you don't need to be doing this particular time. But so that's the wheel of the year. And I hope that, that helps you incorporate Bodey Taoism in the eight wisdom. Traditions known as the streams better into your life. I also wanna make a note. I have updated the summer Sophia. The latest update is now on the website. It's not. You don't have to go to academia dot EDU the way, the website actually will have the current most up to date version of the summit Sephiha, and I am currently in the process of updating it. Because I'm hopefully next week. I'm going to start writing the next book that will incorporate the sumus Sophia into a complete. Try to get some of the stuff some of the stuff have been working on onto a page and systematic orders so that there's actually a book that you'll have that will have the, the current update the, the Kerr the most current one, of course, is spirituality without God, but unfortunately, that still had the original four dishes. And now, as you know, we're at eight traditions and the aid, of course matches the eight pointed compass that we're using as the symbol for bony Taoism. So with all that explained probably to death on gonna go ahead and leave you for this week.

"nelson" Discussed on Awakening with Jay Nelson Forrest

"You could call it personal growth. You could call it spiritual growth, but it actually minds both. So let's start with the two aspects of the process of I growth or psycho spiritual growth. The first is the process of personal growth. Now, Stephen Kobe is the one that I originally got this from. But my understanding he got it from somebody else's. Well so and basically your growth takes place in three stages. You go through a process of dependence, like when you're four years old and stuff, you're kinda dependent on people then in your teenage years you go through the independence process, and then somewhere hopefully in adulthood, you go through an interdependence stage where you realize that all things are connected. And this actually can be subdivided. This is what I subdivide interdependence into two phases. The social interdependence and cosmic interdependence, the socialists when you realize that people are. Dependent on one another in that you both have to be dependent and. Be people have depend on you and you have to depend on others, and there has to be that independence as well. So it's kind of a combination between dependence and independence and social is realizing that the entire society is connected. We're all in this together kind of concept, and then the further stages, Cozma interdependence, and that is sorely needed in our society today. We need to realize that all things are connected. Natures connected, and we need to understand our interdependence on nature interconnection. And so that's the three basic or four stages of personal growth. And of course, the goal of personal growth is flourishing, which I've talked about many times, which combines the personal growth. Which is what the aspect of talking about now. Inner peace, equanimity tranquility and meaning in life. So. That's the process. So you and you can see this, that you can see a lot of people that go through a long period of dependence, who haven't really immature to independence and you have those that are still stuck in the teenage attitude of independence to do my own thing. My way or the highway kind of idea. And then you have mature adults reaching the place of interdependence. Socially, and then even a smaller amount of people, grow into cosmic interdependence, or global interdependence. If you will. So that's the personal growth part. Now the spiritual growth yet understand my definition of spirituality and spirit. So I defined spirit as consciousness. So spirituality deals with the deepening and widening of consciousness of our wariness of our connection with reality with nature. And so this goes through three stages. The subconscious the self conscious and the super conscious. Now, you probably heard self-conscious before, that's when you reach that point of Indian independence, and you can see they coincide, very well, with the, the personal growth, sub-conscious, that is the things that are not conscious of the things that rule us during our dependence stage. We become self conscious in our independent stage and we've become super super conscious in our interdependence stage out, of course, the two aspects of that means social and cosmic. So sub-conscious is when you're just not aware, you're living your life on autopilot. And a lot of people don't get past this. Until late in life where they realize really more to life than just going through the motions living by the some conscious urges, just going out and, and living that way. And you can see the subconscious carries into the self conscious, but self conscious is really when you begin to realize that, you know, you are your own person, you begin to realize you are, you know, your own controller your own caretaker, and this goes back to an old idea that I don't find very much talked about, except by back in the early days, eighteen hundred something like that this thing of personal self government that means you've got to govern yourself, self control, but self gurvey. It contains. Two government has to do two things. Nafta do them. Well, they have to control and the half to care. And those a trade off between the two. So you got to do the same for yourself. You've got to control yourself because you're pretty much the absolute monarch over your own. Body and psyche. And you've got to also care for yourself. A lot of people don't understand that. Self governance, governance tixx, both those aspects you gotta take care of yourself and even though you're supposed to love your neighbor as yourself, you have more control, and therefore more responsibility to care for yourself. Not selfishly, not at the expense of others, but the fact that you have control of yourself means that you do take care of yourself, I because otherwise you're no good to help others if that makes sense. So you've got to make sure that you understand that self self-governance deals, specifically with that aspect taking care of yourself and controlling yourself. And of course, control is, is use very little that we actually can control. I actually divide this into three phases. Which we can control that which we can influence and that which we cannot control or influence. So. If you're familiar with the stoic, they had the dichotomy of choice, and the Kadhamy choices things you can control and things that you cannot control. And I think this is accurate. I think it's helpful, but I don't think it is the complete picture, there are things you can influence. By words and actions and deeds. That you should whenever you can but not at the expense of your own. Highest good. So you go through these stages of sub-conscious, and self conscious you reach the stage of super conscious. Now, you might wonder what the heck is super conscious. So if you look up Mariam Webster dot com, you'll see that super conscious can be defined as of relating to, or possessing the highest consciousness, or margin of consciousness above that within the ordinary range attention, the Oxford, dictionary defines as transcending human or normal consciousness. And I would that's probably the easiest super consciousness is that consciousness was transcends normal consciousness. The APA dictionary, the American, psychological. Cessation dictionary says in the tradition of humanistic psychology a higher state of awareness that is associated with creative inspiration, spiritual insight and the teammate of peak experiences or spiritual experiences, I'd prefer to say, so, of course, they're talking about Abraham modules definition of peak experiences there. So those are the three basic stages of growth, both in the spiritual which is the subconscious self conscious and super conscious and the personal aspects which is dependent interdependent independence and interdependence. Both an interdependent, of course can reach the social, and then the cosmic levels, which is the highest that we can hope for as a species is to reach the cosmic. Awareness of our interdependence that all things are interdependent. So those are the basic stages of psycho spiritual growth. I hope that, that helped you kind of put some conceptualization to the process of personal growth we get into different aspects like the hero's journey, and, and things like that, and how they correspond to this. But we'll go ahead and pass that on past that up for today. I appreciate you. Joining me just wanted to let you know that we are now an iheartradio. So if you have I heart radio can look for waking with Jay Nelson forced, and you'll find it on iheartradio. And with that I will bid you do and have a great day. And until next time may wisdom guide just ups on the path of awakening..

"Uh-huh. Welcome to awakening. I'm Jay Nelson forest today. I wanna talk about psychology and spirituality. So as I've been continually continuing my study. I've taken the dive into what's called trans personal psychology. And the reason I've left that particular branch of psychology for last to delve into is because it hasn't Tennessee to. Crossed the lines from a science into religion. It is kind of like a religious psychology. And what I mean by that is they will accept paranormal. Phenomenon such as psychic abilities, clairvoyance, ghosts demons. Spiritual worlds. It's kind of like a. Acceptance of the religious aspects, but trying to deal with it from a psychological. In other words, it's not institutional in the sense. It's not a church. It's not a denomination. It's kind of like a psychological version of the Asif iw. With the. CIO Sophy kind of throws everything into one big bundle. You know, it's, it's kind of the, the catalyst for the new age movement. So the new age movement does pretty much. Express some the eclecticism the in. Oh, there's no truth. But your own truth can of idea, even though they claim that no truth is hire them or no religions higher than truth. The truth are speaking of is your own truce. So it's a very subjective truth in that sense. And that's why you have different Theophilus going different directions because there's not any real direction, it's kind of like these all teach the same thing you've got to figure out how they are the same because, you know, if if you know anything about Christianity and Buddhism, they're not the same thing. And there's no way that you can harmonize those two things. With, like Teradata Buddhism, and even Djelic Christianity. Those things are not no matter how many maneuvers and, and contortions you go into there's no way to reconcile those if you're honest with the, the systems themselves, and what they do is they're, they're dishonest in the sense that they. Reinterpret those in the archetypal setting. And then try to, you know, bake all, you know, square pegs fit the round holes. So the JAMA men and, and they're not honest with the, the, the, the traditions themselves. So, so that's my problem with why postpone getting into transfers transferral psychology. 'cause I knew that it embraced aspects that were not verifiable by science and departed from the. Lou world view that I hold, which is naturalism the natural world has all there is. And because of that, I knew that I'd be treading on two areas that in which I disagreed. And so when I got to into the study and started looking at much of the material, I found that I was actually correct. You know you have things that in there like, you know, levitated and. The soul. Some these spiritual healing stuff near death experiences. The shock rose. Things of this nature. That, of course, science hasn't verified that such things exist. And then to build your whole psychology on something that's not verifiable to me, doesn't sound like a good plan. So that's why. Kind of a void getting into until now, one of the things, though, that I did think about when I was doing, this is really, we need to distinguish, even if we take psychology in it's more naturalistic sense. And that's what I do cognitive therapy, things of this nature, even many of things Carl Jung has said qualify within the natural Listrik setting although he does crossover and I would consider him.

"Welcome to awake at. I'm Jay Nelson forest today wanna talk about deconstructing God. So what I wanna do is. I want since we've decided to rive decided to incorporate. God talk. I've decided to go ahead in. Really take apart the concept of God a little further than just the normal idea of God. So what I did is. I originally thought well, you know, there's many. Subdivisions we can go through on God. But really today I just wanna talk about four four concepts that you can subdivide God into and they are fate personal ideal ultimate concern and reality. So I want to break that down to those four and just kinda delve into each one a little bit so fade is basically the fact that you're not in control of the world. You're not in control of the way things. Go your and the stoicism was really good at saying you need to understand what's actually under your control. And what's not? And I don't think that we're. Usually conscious of just how much is not under our control. Basically just about everything in your life is not under your control, not that you can't have some influence, but it's not as you control only that which you completely direct is under your control, even your body. You know is not completely under your control something as as connected to you as possible your body, you can't control whether your body gets sick or tired or any of the number of things. What color your eyes are? There's a lot of things that you can't control. So our spear of control is actually much smaller than we actually realize. And although we do have influence in in things of the world pretty much everybody in our lives is not under control pretty much every. Thing in the world is not under our control. We might be able to have influence on a person or a thing or Nevada, but is just an influence. We can't control it. And so the the great teaching of stoicism to concentrate on that, which is in your control and stoicism actually defines a refers to God is part of the the fate or the destiny or the fortune of people and to surrender to that. The the thing I disagree with stoicism on is they say that that's that. God that fate that destiny that fortune is alternately for your good, and there's some advantages to be an optimistic. But I think that the universe is indifferent. It doesn't care about you. So. Whatever God, we conceive that God has to be an end in different God. And if it's an indifferent God than it has to be more like fate and fortune and the working out of the laws of nature. So the second. Aspect of God that I'm looking at today. And like you said, we could probably subdivide. Over and over again. But I'm just picking these four is a personal ideal. So think of this when you think of God, and you think of we'll just take the Christian. God says most familiar with people. There's the imitation of Christ that also in the bible talks about being imitators of God. So God is eight ideal. And you can see this pretty clearly if you actually kinda step back and realize in the Old Testament, you see God completely different who's telling people to kill man woman and child and even the baby in the womb? To kill them to actually wipe out entire nations in the New Testament, you have God's who? So loved the world that he gave his only begotten son. So is a complete so much. So that one of the early what was later considered a heretic Marsin believed that they're actually two gods was the Demi Moore JR. And the other was the the father of Jesus. That's how radical if you actually are honest with the the Old Testament. Most people don't read the Old Testament, especially the Pentateuch and the historical accounts. Well, the the history books is what they're called how much history is actually in. There is debatable. But Joshua and books like that the the chronicles kings wanted to you'll see things that just you know, are appalling if you know that your idea of God. But in the New Testament, there's a new cleaned up polish version of God, not perfectly, but you know, much more loving and looking out for the world and. A more benevolent if you will. And so you see mankind has and you see this. If you study if you do any comparative religious studies, you'll see that people create God's their own image. So the Greeks created Zeus in their own image and the rest of the pantheon of gods and the Israelites created Joe VAR, y'all way or elohim in their own image in Islam, you'll see that they're creating Allah in their own image that the Allah is for the air ABS, and you have to follow what they feel as the ideal. So what they do is they they have a personal ideal. They have the ideal man or woman and they project that onto the concept of God. So that's what I'm talking about. When I talk about the personal ideal. The perfect, man. The perfect woman is that projection that they put onto the concept of

"Uh-huh. Welcome to awakening. I'm Jay Nelson forest today. I'm going to be talking about God Christianity and paganism. So as I gave you a option to let me know what you think about a pantheon stick idea within boaty Taoism, I didn't get much feedback. And I was kind of a little disappointed in that. So I kinda had to make this decision without much guidance. I did talk to my family about it. And and I actually wrote an article for the spiritual natural society on paganism or not paying into some on pantheon. And so I re- published that on the website genostim force dot com that gives the proof for pantheon. And so. I thought that I would give you a chance to understand where my thinking has gone and give you a chance to comment at this point some of the changes that I making based upon my conception of pantheon so pantheon some basically says that all is God. And God is all pan means all and the ISM. Of course means God. All god. And so I'm an atheist, and the fact that I say no to theism that is the Christian Islamic in Judaism, God, I say no that that is evidence against that. God. And there's no evidence for a entity or entities called God. However, there is within us the sense of something greater there is a. Idea of a higher power. It's more a feeling than idea. And so when I think about pantheon, I think really the best way to explain my particular take on pantheon is a naturalistic pantheon that is the natural all that there is. But that natural world is important the importance has nothing to do with his existence. It's something that we attribute to it. In other words, objectively it's the cosmos subjectively it's God. That is has you might know from. Other conversations I've had they're actually two kinds of belief beliefs about there's more than two, but the two that are important at this. There's two kinds of belief. There's the belief in. What is true and the belief that what is important the belief is what is true. Is course is truth the belief? It is what is important is our values and for us, of course, as Bodey Taoist. It's skepticism altruism, flourishing and environmentalism. The spells out the word safe. And once you realize that there's two kinds of things they're the values is not out there values of something we bring to the table. And so when we say when I say that the universe is God, I'm bringing value to the table values. Are important altruism. Skepticism flourishing environmentalism these values are important. And likewise, the universe is important it sacred and Hance God divine ultimate concern. And I actually got to thinking about. And I've done this in a previous book from Christ Buddha. I believe I have the article on it where I deconstruct spiritual or deconstruct God. And for the simplicity fact, I'm just going to deconstruct God into four parts. There's goddess fate got as ideal person God as. An ultimate concern, and God is a central theme. So if you divide God into those four parts, the the God concept, then you can see that fate. Yeah. Nature kind of tells us our fate, and we're going to skip the personal ideal and go right to alternate. Concern nature is our ultimate concern and the last one central theme. God nature is our central theme. So everything else revolves around the whole. Now, the the second one personal ideal that is a moral ideal. What we did is we created God in our image that we projected our morality onto God. Kind of like a big projector screen. So that we can look at God. And kind of see ourselves as the the perfect man or the perfect woman. And so when we look at God and. We kind of think about that as a great projector then in the Old Testament. You see that the God of the old test, but really is a projection of the Israelites and their their highest ideals that they had at that time. Of course, they were a tribe. So it's very much a tribal God. And you see he's petty. He's jealousy. Does things that you know, genocide and things of this nature things that you would expect the tribe to view for themselves as the best for them. In other words, it's very human standard projected onto this large blank screen called God. And in the New Testament, you have Jesus who projects a different view of that God because Jesus had a better deeper understanding of the unity of the human race. And at least the writers who wrote about him did like John in the gospel of John it says for God so loved the world that he gave John three sixteen. So all of a sudden, it's not triable it's cosmopolitan, and that's probably from the influence of stoicism on Christianity. Most people don't give. Stoicism the credited deserves it's much that deeply influenced deeply influenced Christianity in the writers of of the early texts deeply influenced them. So stoicism was definitely influence in in bringing about this idea of cosmic perspective. The other thing too is Christianity, although it appeared to start within the Jewish Ajoy sect it quickly got adopted by the gentiles. And of course, the gentiles aren't the Jews. So it's also natural that they would become more cosmopolitan more citizens of the world if you will. And so for the protection changed from a tribal God to a universal God of love and Justice. Of course, you've got both parts. So when you start to look at this idea of as we're deconstructing God, the personal ideal. Well, we have to do is. We have to realize we cannot project the personal idea onto nature nature is not a person nature is not a he or she said it now, we may we may look out the Taoist the the feminine masculine and stuff like that. I'm not not saying anything about that. What I'm talking about is just simply thinking of God as a man or God as a woman, God is an it. Okay. Because God is nature nature is God. So all is got an all. And Nate all is God. And God is all so that being the case, then we have to eliminate as we deconstructed God, we have to limit the personal and we have to find somewhere else to do that projection. And my suggestion is to do that projection on the sages such as the Buddha and Lousa and Confucius put it on the the the great sages as examples on ideas to live up to the other advantage to that is that they're much more human much more relatable, much more more realistic. Although over time, of course, the idealization of any of these characters grew. So that's that's the concept here of the idea of adding pantheon into Bodey Taoism. So hopefully that that's clear that part. So that's the remember the the name of this episode is God Christianity and paganism. So part two is Christianity because the eight traditions. None of them deal with. None of them deal with the God concept. Stoicism might be the closest we have. That really deals with the God concept. And the simple fact is that there's a lot that. Just being in a culture that's been saturated with Christianity. I think it's best. If we acknowledge our debt to Christianity. Oh, my debt to Christianity. Yes. Because spiritual disciplines, and and and and spirituality and things of this nature. Definitely come from Christianity. And so I decided to add Christianity to the wisdom traditions, and I also have decided to add paganism to the wisdom traditions, but I wanna keep the wisdom traditions to eight. So that means I'm going to eliminate to wisdom traditions. So I'm replacing existential ISM and humanism with Christianity and paganism.

"Uh-huh. Hello friends. Welcome again to the podcast Wiki. I'm Jay Nelson forest today. I wanna talk about God talk. So I've been doing a recent deep Dolf into Carl Jung and. I don't know if you familiar with much of Karl Yune he is probably one of the greatest psychologist of all time to me, a profound thinker and the more that I study the more that his. Thinking makes sense to me. I'm reading not just the actual works of car of of Yoon. But I'm also working through a his it's called an autobiography it's a semi autobiography if that makes sense it was actually ghost written in in the although we know who actually wrote the autobiography for him. So it's a biography. Autobiography kind of thing a lot of it. He did. Right. And most of it is his words. Although perfected by the. Person who actually wrote it say all this to say that he is interesting. Take is. Making me rethink the. The God talk question. And so for those that are hard atheists list of podcast. This might be a difficult thing to listen to. So let me be started guest by saying clearly that I believe that the theistic God of Christianity. Islam and Judaism is. On tenable that is there is no evidence and the evidence we have is against such an idea of all loving all powerful. God who created this world came just not? You can't look at the evidence in come to the conclusion that that. That's correct you can ignore the evidence in pick and choose and many Christians and Islamic scholars and things of this nature do that they have to do that they have to pick through the evidence. They can't be honest with him. My difficulty though is the power that the God concept has. Throughout the centuries. The reoccurring us of it. And I say that because I have I have a couple friends in my life. L and will are are two that come to mind both of which flow. Back and forth between this God concept. Both have at least for a time were eight Theus te in the sense. I didn't believe in God. And both now are re. Searching the God question, although they've taken away the the the dog Matic -ness of of Christianity and stuff like that is an interesting to them. What's interesting is more the mystical the the mysticism of yet. Or if you wanna be accurate at least for for one of my friends. It's more in the NAS tick. The knowing of this. Greater higher power thing. So. And for me if I embrace God talk it would be in a pantheon setting. I always had. I always felt that there was a power in the pantheon them motif, not so much the the because the the physical sciences if you just cut man in half and just he's if you're just talking rational than clearly naturalism is the the most correct interpretation the most correct conclusion based upon the evidence we have so far. But man is not just an objective rationalist. He has a deeper psychic experience, the what you in called the unconscious and the more that I delve into these hidden motives, the more. I begin to question the wisdom of divorcing myself from the God talk thing. And so I'm opening this up to discussion with you. Would you think about God talk? Do you think there's a place where you can talk about God in the sense that the the universe is God and God is universe to use Dhaka's term sex sex up, atheism. Is there a place for that? Do you feel? It's just that's a line that you won't cross is that ally. And that I should not cross. And if so why? Not. And you can you know, either comment on this episode in the comments on the website at Jada genostim force dot com, or you can Email me directly. There's a contact page on the website. And there's also my Email address, which you can Email me directly J J Y at j Nelson forest dot com and again forced is with two ours. And if you do that, then you know, I will get back to you probably Thursday or Friday of next week of this coming week, depending on how busy I am. I might have jury duty this coming week. So we'll have to see, but the important thing that I really want to put out to you is I need to know what you think about God talk in a pantheon stick sense because the theistic cents is that's not on the. Table. Okay. But whatever someone says God, you know, there is the the. The crossover between that and the theistic concept. You know, when I think of a pantheon steak. Idea of God. I think more of like Dow something that doesn't have the attributes of being all loving in the sense of what we are something. That's because the universe is indifferent. Okay. That's a simple fact, the universe is indifferent to our existence. We just happen to curve out. Carve out a space of existence within a cruel and on the life. Universe. We have life booming in on earth, which is unusual. Considering how much non-life there is in in our solar system that we have been able to discern anyway. So when you look at it that way, you kind of think, okay? So whatever this.

"Hello friends. Welcome to the podcast awakening. I'm Jay Nelson forest. So they I wanna talk about cultural on Raveling. So I've been doing some study within postmodern thinking and Postmodernism and the. Combination of that which with understanding of integral philosophy. And with Ken Weber, and some of the other ideas of how modern culture is on Raveling, and I ran across some stuff from Jacques Lacan, who's a French psychoanalyst. And probably the twentieth. Century's most famous one and isn't really known too much in the United States, but is known within continental philosophy and psychoanalysts circles in one of the things he came up with is he began to. Look at Freud's. Cycle analysts. And he thought, you know, a lot of Freud's ideas, actually don't deal with the actual unconscious at deals with language. And so he basically translated a lot of Fred Freud's ideas, soon Freud's ideas into an idea about language. And there's a philosophical movement that's called structuralism and within the logistics, which is dealing with language. They were looking at language as having a signifier and the signified. So a signifier is some kind of a verbal symbol a word concept that would symbolize a signifier for an example, if there's a cat that would be you know, I point to a cat. I use the signifier cat to refer to the object that I'm pointing at cat. And of course, that's simplistic and dairy, Don, others deconstructed that and that's a whole nother podcast. I don't wanna get into that right now. But let's just stick with the idea of a signifier. So what Laekan basically began to think about is. He thought of schizophrenia. As the disintegration or disconnection of those signifier 's in other words, the meaning making mechanism. Disintegrated for schizophrenic things worked coherent. There was not a coherent whole, and in some I'm not saying the concept this, but in in my experience with studying schizophrenia, one of the things that's very common is the narrative of the government is watching the they're watching are being monitored a very small loop of Cigna fires that sit around the self. But most of the the the larger contextual signifier 's of like nationality. Religion subculture social status things of this nature disintegrate within that. So I I see some. I'm not sure he's correct. But I see where he's getting that from and so. His basic thesis is that the schizophrenia is the disintegration or disconnection of those signifier 's and therefore there's not a holistic understanding of reality. And he kind of divided the subconscious into the imaginary the symbolic and the real and I'm not going to get into his. Cycle. Analysts theory too much here. Just enough to say that there's a point to what he's saying. And there are some philosophers modern philosophers who actually take his idea and have applied it to capitalism and to culture, and that's where I wanna pick up. I want to pick up at the fact that Macon's idea that the schizophrenia is the. Disconnection of signifier. So in other words is the it's the lack of making a coherent meaning of the world said disintegration or a a lack of integration of a unified. Being unifying contextual understanding of reality. Does that make sense? I hope it does. So I want to read some from Jordan Peterson. And it's in his preface to the book. Maps of meaning that kinda will give us a context as we talk about culture here. So this is what he says something we cannot see protects us from something. We do not understand. The thing. We cannot see is culture. In its interests, psychic or internal manifestation the thing. We don't understand is the chaos that gave rise to culture. If the structure of culture is disrupted unwittingly chaos returns. We'll do anything anything to defend ourselves against that return. And that. Is so correct. So.

"No. There's no religion. I can think of that would dot pass the the standard of that. And then after you get that general as specific as you can deaf initiative, which is part functional part description, then I would say what you need to do. Is you need to kind of think a little clearer about religion and sub divide religion into what I call for subdivisions. So there's natural religion and supernatural login. Bodey Taoism would be a natural. Jim. We don't believe in the supernatural don't believe in God. And things of this nature. The supernatural that would be like Christianity Islam Judaism. That's a supernatural religion. And then whether it's a personal, religion or a communal religion. So that would be the other division between a personal religion. Which is centered more around the personal the person's practice that would be like in Wicca, you have the sole practitioner. And that's basically what I'm thinking of or even in secular Buddhism. You have a sole practitioner. It's more centered on the individual, even though they do get together and meditate and that something as a body Taoist that we would do we'd actually be more than happy to join the Buddhist, meditation or. The eco spirituality people who might be practicing shin Rin Yoku where they go out into nature. Shivnarine Yoku is usually translated literally as force bathing. I prefer to say nature immersion. And what you do is you go out in nature and just immerse yourself. Take all the the sensory input. And just kind of immerse yourself in the the environments, you're in just listened to the sounds smell the smells be present fully present in nature is what that's about. And so if some group is doing that that something that we'd be Abbadi douse would be more than happy to to participate in they were so inclined. It's also something you could practice on your own something I enjoy. So you've got then four different kinds. You've got the first division, which is what is a natural. What is a supernatural Bodey? Dallas amiss natural Christianity supernatural, and then you've got personal and communal Bodo Somoza, personal, religion and Cristiani's communal. It's about going to church, then things of this nature, go to the the synagogue, or or, you know, go to the temple or or whatever the the communal part is is the focus than it's more of a communal. It doesn't mean that it doesn't have a personal aspect. And it doesn't mean that. If a personal religion doesn't have a communal aspect is just what the focuses if that makes sense the focus is on personal practice for a body doused, your us, a solitary practice or most of the time. If you join you like I said you join with the Buddhist to do meditation or if you can find other Bodey doused in your area. You can get together and do nature immersion with them or meditation with them that would be the most common to things that you would do together. But you could you know, read sacred texts that like the Dow day djing or something like that or the Dhammapada? Yeah. In talk about that one of the texts of the or books from or about one of the eight traditions that body Taoism considers inspiring. So that kind of gives you a ballpark idea, you can kind of think a little clearer about religion than and it's not that I still have apprehensions about it. But I think if at least if we say a personal and natural religion Bodos as personal and natural religion. Then you get the idea you get kind of better the idea. Oh, it's about the natural world. It's about personal development becoming better people. And to me, that's how we change society. You want to change society make better people? And how do we make better people? We make better ourselves we begin. You know, it's it's like that famous saying a believe it was a tributed Gandhi. You know, everyone thinks about changing the world thinks about changing them. Selves. So be the change. You wanna see in the world? And I really believe that ES where we need to go. If we wanna see lasting and deep change. So what is religion? You've got a general overview of, you know. Religion being a comprehensive system of beliefs and practices fall by group of people. That is centered on alternate concern and gives meaning to life, and the means for personal and social transformation, and then it can be a natural or supernatural religion, or it can be focused on the personal or a communal. And that would give you at least a clearer picture of religion. And then of course, you can get into natural religions, and and things that are more focused on dater such as paganism and Taoism and Buddhism and things that are equal EKO spirituality things that we'd be more focused on this life and this natural world. So hopefully that helps you understand. The nature of religion. What is religion? I appreciate you.

"Hello friends. Welcome to the podcast. I'm Jay Nelson forest today to be dealing with. What is religion? So boaty Taoism has been defined as a religion. And then I thought well, maybe I should call it a spirituality, and then maybe just a world view a philosophy of life. And I've struggled back and forth between whether to call voting Taoism religion. Now, there's some reasons to call it a religion for one in the United States and some other countries if it is a religion, it's protected you have the freedom of religion in the United States, for example. And so it'd be protected so that's a definite plus in that category. And the con is that when I say that Bodey Taoism a religion, I think most people picture a belief in God. And we don't believe in a God. I don't boaty. Dow some does not include a belief in God the supernatural afterlife. So it seems kind of. Weird to call. It a religion to some people because well, it there's no belief in God in yet Buddhism doesn't believe at least terra vodka Buddhism doesn't have a belief in God or has. I guess it's it you wouldn't say it quite that way. Doesn't it doesn't have anything to do with God being an ultimate concern? There are God's in the Pali canon, but the gods and the divas are pretty much part of some Sar the part of the same suffering. They don't have a clue either. And so they're really irrelevant to Buddhism. So they're there, but they're irrelevant. So, but then you've got Gina some which is eight theistic. It doesn't believe in gods. So. You've you can you count to go back and forth between. Okay. So you do have some religions what about humanism? Well, if you followed the history of humanism most people don't know the history, but it originally began as religious humanism. So it was considered religious now pretty much an alternate. Religion too. Theism to to Christianity. And so you have that aspect, of course, after the first manifesto, the humanist manifesto one. After that, the second one dropped and became much more secular and didn't embrace the religious categories. John, Dewey, who is one of the philosophers who signed it. He has a book called the common faith in which he argues that some of those things some of the words from religion, a hard to to give up just because the have meaning the have substance, and whether or not it has substance after pretty much rejecting a belief in in a theistic. God does the word religion have valid validity. You know? That's that's a question that I've struggled with and even Paul Kurtz who founded the secular. The secular Buddhist council for secular of excuse me, the council for secular humanism, even he struggled with what you call a world view that does the same thing as a religion does. But isn't centered around God or the supernatural? What do you call it? And he came up with you practically which may s-, basically means good practical wisdom. You know, it would be great. If that was popular understandable term. I have never met anybody in my life personally that actually ever used the word you practically. So it's it it doesn't mean anything to anybody. It would be like in in me inventing first. I invent the word boaty Taoism the way of awakening. And then I describe it as you practically which is another word that nobody would know. So use one word to describe another word and a person doesn't know either of those. That's not very helpful. So that's why I went with. My latest book the one I did last year was spirituality without God introduction to Bodey Taoism. Of course, I've developed my thought further since then in that book, I argue that could defined religion as the search for significant in ways related to the sacred. I am not sure that I actually like that terminology.

"Into the systems. That are they're they're real the racism is real. I do not deny that. But what I am denying is that the the idea here that what we need to do is, you know, become, you know, switch everything, and, you know, let the people of color oppress the whites that's not that's not the answer. That's hatred. I think we need to follow the example of Desmond Tutu the example of Nelson Mandela the example of Martin Luther King junior. We need to follow the example of men of highest caliber, you know, we need to follow Michelle Obama's dictate when they go low. Oh, we go. Hi, because we need to be people of character. That's what's important. We need to stand for the truth. We need to stand for equality of opportunity. And we need to stand for. The love and goodwill towards all human beings and the environment and the animals, so I'm gonna go ahead and leave it there. So there's so much more that I could say, but I have pretty much run out of time. So if you have any comments or questions, please Email me at Jay at Jane Elson force dot com. Visit my website.

"Welcome prince. I'm Jay Nelson forest. Thank you for tuning into the podcast today. I'm going to be talking about identity politics. So let's begin dealing with identity politics with the definition. Identity. Politics is the tendency for people of a particular race religion gender ethnicity to organize politically around that special interest for the sole purpose of advancing that interest without concern or regard for any larger group or collective. Now, the difficulty is whenever you deal with something like this. People tend to misunderstand. So let me speak as carefully as I can. So understand that. We are living in a nation. That's now divided. It's divided even more. So than when I was growing up and reached adult dot delta. It's now so polarized that you have barbs flying back and forth between the the right and the left that it's hard for anybody to have a decent conversation or to come to any kind of mutual understanding. It's so polarized now that it's hard for any conversation. To take place any civil discourse to take place. It is come to the point of just name. Call in across the aisles. A good example of that is what took place with Jordan Peterson. If you're not familiar with Jordan Peterson. He's. He's canadian. Psychologists who basically got. Thrown into the midst of the the culture wars. So. He had issue with people or the government. Man Tate mandating the language that he was to us referring to transgenders transgender people. His issue wasn't that he wouldn't respect the person. What was the issue is? Once you start that slippery slope of legislating. Conversation when you legislate language when you began to take away freedom, you add up a slippery slope where it becomes. Real issue because then whoever's in power gets the decide what can be said what cannot and for those of us that are interested in free speech. That's an issue because I think that everybody has the right to be wrong. And they have the right to share their opinion. Even if you disagree. The problem that I'm having with the whole identity. Politics thing is the the he madness of it and the strategy the TAC TAC, the tactical strategy that's used in this identity politics realm. Here's the thing. Okay. I believe in social Justice. But I don't believe in social Justice as it is sometimes extreme or radicalized on the left where it's oh. Well, for an example, let's let's use an example to try to get a little more complex or a little more nuance and a little more specific. So. It is understood by some within the social Justice arena that only white people can be racist. Okay. That's an extreme left viewpoint. Only white people can be racist. This is an issue that I have because first of all that isn't true. And see the thing is it doesn't matter. Whether it's true or not they believe it and the minute that you question it than they especially if you happen to be. Of white skin. You are now on the alt-right just by just simply questioning. And this is the this is the way that it operates. They operate on the basis of. And remember who I'm talking about? I'm not talking about all those that are are for social Justice. I'm one of those as a supporter of Bernie Sanders. So please understand that my political view is metal to left in in the sense that I believe in in rights, or you might even say it's libertarian in the fact that I believe that government should stay out of our lives as much as possible because anytime government starts telling you what to do. Somebody's ideology is now controlling your freedom of speech and your civil rights. It shouldn't be okay. Keep government out of the private sphere. Let them take care of what needs to be taken care of by government. So, but that's that goes beside the point. So here's the issue is once you limit freedom of speech. You can do that in a number of ways the way that the particular tactic that they use is to immediately do character assassination. Now, you might ask like what what are you talking about? Well, let me use the case of the evergreen state college incident with Brett Weinstein. So Brett Weinstein is a biologist and he was a teacher at. Evergreen state college up in Washington. So understand he is a liberal or progressive. And they were in the process of trying to make the the college a social Justice college. They had a new president come in. And there's some indication that his particular plan was to restructure the the college. And what he did is he created a equity council and the equity council came up with this huge document that very people bothered to read where they're actually restructuring the the college now to to try to make a really long story really short is the structure of the the original founding of the the college was to give it maximum freedom to the professors to be able to do something that, you know? Was not possible in a regular college. And so they left the faculty in charge of pretty much the direction of the college, which is unusual and this president came in and was try to restructure it. And he was doing it through means of the equity council and the equity council had a lot of things in the document and Brett Weinstein win against the the document the the way that they were implementing it because of the the hidden. Restructuring that was in it. And because he did that. People began to question his commitment to equity to a quality. And of course, if you have you know, any kind of knowledge about Brett he is definitely one that believes in equality of opportunity. So it was one of those things that he he did that. And then because he raised issues day began to have questions concerning him, and then because there are moving in the direction they had a day of absence and once a year the. The faculty. The the people of color faculty would leave campus for one day to to let people know the importance of people of color, and they're they're import to the college. And Brett never had any issue with this the entire time. What took place though in? I believe it was two thousand seventeen is they decided that. Oh, no. We are not going to be absent. We're going to ask the white people to be absent.
