"One of my favorite philosophers even a small infinity is infinity. That's right it's we talked a lot. Yes because i'm not saying that one's smallness is a bad thing. It's almost like within that. Smallest you can feel the hugeness. Send the whole like ocean and the drop kind of thing. That's it and i've i've personally deafening meditation. Find a real piece of the. It's okay. I'm just in this big one thing and right now. I'm supposed to be a musician. Thank you so much. And i'm gonna do my very best and then i'm gonna melt down into whatever the next thing is whether that's just being soil or someone's candle and all okay. This is the point. So i think twice a they with meditation. You get that sort of so. It's okay it's okay. Well the stuff that you worry about the other twenty three and a half hours is just to sort of game Yeah but it's fun. It's great and you learn and you grow and you fail everything But ultimately say it's all it's all okay but when you put it all down. And that's what meditation is and you're still there that's great. That's great news. That's who you really are other stuff is stuck to the window as who you really artists who we we realize it's all of us right everything every but it's so hard to let alone on your poker. I don't know how to articulate that feeling. It's just a feeling like okay. It's right. yeah yeah. Yeah when it comes to me often mike Oh i don't have to do anything that's when not lake right now. I can sit. It's like a deeper profound. Like i just am like i i am. I don't have to knots. I feel like really powerful for especially people like us who were raised religious. Where it's like you have to do certain things to reach the kingdom of heaven and the kingdom of heaven is that feeling of just like. Oh it's okay. i don't have to do anything. It's it's an undoing earning. It's an unknowing. The mind can't now but it goes back to what you were saying about. Success is we so we just started talking off. Mike about tickets stress like my weekend when this airs isn't there laura is going to open for g. Got cocoa tickets home because she had the draft. Because she's amazing this piece. Though i was just gonna say this will air after that weekend is done. So it's like a great cosmic. What are you worried. About linking no matter what the land in the missile air like. Everything will marshawn harp on slow ticket sales at the brain precipitator third weekend where everybody who has anything to do with ticket. Sales has been in that position. Yes i've been even with all of the suffering in the world that's happening as we speak. We're all over the place still if you said to me you know. The tickets aren't really selling in pittsburgh dot that would consume me more than anything in los angles knowing how ridiculous that is. Yeah because i think that for people who've become show business people ticket sales is somehow a measure of your worth even for you internally. Yeah because we got into showbiz partly to give ourselves a sense of self worth. It's like stopping the wound. You were trying to fix in the first rate it barely what he likes you then coming in and i knew it all along and what's worse you go on instagram. And i'm not normally this way. But i see so many people selling out there like added show added show. And i'm like man i'm i'm trying to subtract to show over but also who cares. This is what val said on the way we left the east side coming here and it's feeling stress and by the time we got here. I felt fantastic. And we were just talking about. And i'd love to hear your thoughts on the folly of looking for it out there. I took that as long as you want. Please talk about it for only two hours. Okay well the forty of what would you describe it. I've looking for it out there. Oh yeah yeah. Whatever it is up in working on this a lot I think that other if it's a fully it's just a natural thing of like everybody like you were saying earlier. Everyone wants to be seen. Everyone wants someone to confirm that their precious special because we don't really at least in the schools. I went to really get to your precious just by existing just like that lizard and just like you know and alan watts. Have you ever stopped and thought about the virtues that you grew too precious jewels that this planet knows. Which are your eyes you you. That's part of you and you know nobody told you. Have you ever watched a video. That teach habib sent me a couple of weeks ago of a a cell turning into a tadpole wow and it starts says nothing and then you just watch life. it's just wild. Yeah feeling anytime without much everywhere. Yeah that magic is absolutely everywhere is also strangely hidden in maine me in the mainstream media video ranch headline right so so so so you really told as a kid. How by the way you have all this magic in you and so does everybody. Everyone's different to anyone else. We're all special and we'll we'll super special so you're like okay. Well i don't feel good about myself. No one in this circle is telling me anything good. So i'm gonna become something much bigger to get that applause. Yeah can you pinpoint it. Because i had a christmas eve where i went up into the bathroom like a movie like an indie movie clenched my fists. I was just so frustrated. With where i was in my how i felt really how i felt small and not special. I kind of my an angry prayed. Kinda myself i was like. I'm not i'm not gonna be here. I'm going to get out of here. I was Fourteen and I was at boarding school. This this ad is not and I went to hang out with some guy in the same boarding houses me who had a sister a girl school up the road and we went to hang out with his sister and his friends and the end of the day he said. He said my sister's asked if he would not come next week. Crushed under a pot of brick home. Oh oh okay. I've clearly like turn into something else really working. I mean it's the same thing. I wish i could like be. Go talk to that kid so it was all okay. Don't worry this is normal teenage stuff. That's the time if we just felt like all right. I'm just less than nothing. And so the way it was the greatest gift ever and littler fire and that combined with the love of music because as people i know who love love love music but don't they don't really bothered about whether they do it as a job over whether they're in a huge banner right so most frontmen so i was just gonna say they didn't have the compulsion to master most from men have some sort of and i had a few episodes that i'm sure you guys did something that the fire that just won't cannot be extinguished at my. I will not stop. And so it's a blessing and at the time it felt like a curse but it was the greatest. I would do nothing but be highly grateful to all of the people concerned in that madonna talking about that all the time. It's like i wish. I could take away the wounds of her child self. But i'm like and this is a cliche but it doesn't mean it's not true. That's who made her into the that. I love so much. Now that sounds like a backstreet boy lyric. But it's true so there's nothing wrong with that. I want it that way. If i were you sidebar. All i would do is hilarious covers like i would just cover weird sound like when phoebe bridges covered the google's. I don't know if you saw that didn't see that. I just think it's so funny. Like if i were you. If i were more i would just cover unexpected songs and do them we. We covered Pony the other day genuine fats. Like one of my songs can go to. What is the most piece having. Because of the ernest i wanna timberland first big songs. He produced that. Yeah i didn't know and it's brilliant. Tell me why a loved.

Ac- last night i was thinking about how we skip the intro to rift on that earlier i said he's got the inner and the daredevil intro is really good oh look the song to be that if you made an intro family matters it's like would you like millions of people to see this millions of times and now you work for nine years on the daredevils and it's like would you like everyone to see this once and never again and then on the finale of the whole series out of respect one more time right oh my guy credits to are just like next episode.

"My mom is also dyslexic. So one side never made it out. But like if i was doing like a joke version. There's a sign that says you're headed for heal. Never made it out. My dad caught it. Yeah but then there was also a sign next to it. That's like school is essential and schools the waste of time. Why were they against school so it was a doomsday cult. So it always. I always felt growing up. That god is going to end the world and like forty five minutes from now. You live in that constant state of would be the point of going to school. Why would you get a job. That would take care of your kids. Why would you fix the bus. Why would you not put the septic tank under the bias. And where did that come from. The toilet in the bus was on this like three foot platform and then there was no door of any kind no windows. Who'd be the center of the bus and it was on this platform that you'd have to get up on to like shit and then because you're supposed to put a septic tank under a bus but my dad didn't know how to do that so he was like. I just build a platform for so you would shit to the facade of a toilet and then below is just like a tupperware you take it out so when the bus starts to smell like death time to empty that that tank. It's so weird that you can get people to join. This people would ask for tours in the bus and they would be like one step inside. I got it got it. Yeah i'll just do. Independent study was that part of it. Come back to the bus yet. Because we being they were proud of the bus. Yes note no money. He refused any money instead. Relying on found parts like anything that's like in the trash but it's very rare that someone will throw all of the working parts to a kitchen. Everything was always broken. And then we would show up. There'd be a bunch of winnie winnebago's these campgrounds. It's all like elderly people that are tired. And oh my god kids and they can't wait to talk to you and it's like oh boy. Do i have a turn for you. You're not gonna like these kids at all. These are the children of the corn. This is your favorite cartoon cartoons over the devil. You're about to die. You're about to go to hell. Yeah so they asked for tours inside the bus because the outside also look at in-service boss it's essentially like arrested development djokovic hop bonds but if we did stop near a bench people would would check it out today. Should i get yeah. I now understand what you're saying. Yes i thought it was just a bus that they could take bob but instead of the number three when i had those like rolling signs at the very top jesus died for your sin. His blood is on your hands. It was like that so that people would look at that. And that's not the number three they'd be like greyhound has gotten very strange. Lingering people were trying to open the door if we stopped like near like if you're like two cars behind the bus stop that's probably the bus. Yeah whoa yeah. And how did out in general. I think so many things fell apart. I mean we were never. I always get jealous of cult documentaries because there's episode two or there's the fact one in a documentary where the cult has this like all is well. things are expanding. We will join ups. People that had a years worth of grief finally unloaded. We got a compound. We never had that heyday. We never had a moment of success. Failing cult people. You started with in boston. And they're still doing like chit chop wednesdays at five pm and you're like give it up. You have to stop your your forty one. You look fifty eight. You have to stop. It's sad texting as weird. It was that that was the cult was a person to be that guy for boston. We never had a moment of success. The funding so specific for me. I also listen to the show. What a talent. Just go for though before it really fellow so the bus was a big part of like. Oh she we get to move around a lot but we never moved. We just ohio and then florida. There's a thing called reserve america where you can stay at a campground for a dollar a day. This is like the eighty s millan would earn the ninety s so my dad fund to campgrounds within two miles of each other and we would just oscillate between the two campgrounds and people would be there that we just. We just came back from arizona. We saw the grand canyon. Or whatever where you guys bad down the street. There's a great. Tom thumb gas station so we did that. For twelve years. We street preach and then well years. Yes so casual. Twelve years this healthy ears and it sounds like a two year in-depth where no one joining twelve hard ones. I don't again. I don't think it would work now when you don't have the internet and the cult leader. They were successful. James successful his eight kids. I think it's a thirteen. It was eight kids but it was like thirteen of together because another guy there. The numbers are up. Don't look it up cut. That beat david shit. All right. it's like it made me like mullany less. How could you associates the company you keep. I will fight mullany.

"Yeah that's like zen master would be like. Go make bread for ten years. And then i'll teach you because they needed. It does end tea ceremony. Sometimes when i make my coffee in the morning i try to feel the weight of the of the espresso and and just do it to spiritual experience instead of just going and buying a coffee. Yeah is that it can be but it's way more easy to just be like. Thanks yeah i'm like. Do i wanna like 'cause right now. My life is so busy like the more. I wanna unplug the my career. I also business and both things been going really well. The more you on the more my desire to quit everything is the better my career and all this stuff is happening and in. It's so it's really like ten very interesting. But i'm like i've just been tempting to go like well. Okay i'll plug back in. I've been thinking about the idea like why don't why. Why do i need anything. Like i can just live like. I could just live in the woods. I i just need one plate. I don't my needs are so little. And so i'm like why am i. Why am i doing all this stuff. Yeah obviously gonna keep doing it as hard as i can. But i i don't know i wonder if it's helpful. I'm going to call you nice right. We're we've leveled out leveled out. We'll xbox thing goes achieve unlucky. Because i deal with this too. At what point is it. Beautiful to honor. Let's get real. But your incarnation your your specific set of gifts and the path if you are the universe playing the role of abbey. I'm getting a huge kick out of him. That's of service to me. You know what. I mean like i. I don't want either of us to get too caught up in the idea that it's like well we have because i think that too. I'm like well. Why don't we just go to the woods because you know i did largo a couple nights ago and it felt incredible for them and for me. Yeah everybody left feeling so much. I can't speak for them. I left feeling. So much life pulsing with like life lifeforce. Not an ego trip. I know the difference. Because when i was young it was like a new. Do this shit salk in your face dad or whatever like that sort of feeling this was like we got a big wheel of water turning together and we all left feeling a little less alone and afraid. So what's wrong with that such a good feeling well so you can go to the woods. Sometimes that you don't have to always be there. I was. I was sitting in a backyard and they had a fireplace in the backyard and sitting around the fire fireplace going and it was awesome. Just like everyone's laughing having a great time. And i'm looking. I felt like there was nothing but just the fire. No phones like now just people hanging out and then immediately i was like okay. I need to get a fireplace. And i can do this all the time and then i'm like longing to like own this fire in have this fireplace and i'm like wait. There's a fire right here. I can just enjoy this right now instead of planning how. I'm going to do this every night. And get more and more this. It was like the addict brain. He did it. Yeah but that's consciousness. Also i wanna get into addiction to. Because i heard you say you're in the program. Some people don't want to admit that they're in the program. Yeah but you're in the program. I offer up one of the twelve step programs one of the twelfth but there is something enlightening i think about recognizing yourself as an addict because and this is richard. Rohr who i love. He goes. everyone's addicted to their own way of thinking So like an attic is. It's almost a blessing if you're addicted in my case to alcohol and you because then you go like well. What else am i addicted to. Meaning i thought the alcohol thing was that was someone else's thoughts be man drink. Your comedian get drunk via pirate. Like i had no say in it. It was like a pro. Like the matrix had been uploaded into me. And i was just playing it out but like when you were a type of awakening like wait. I don't wanna be doing this. So did that feel to you like a practice at like taking the reins of your life that cracked it. Open this the second step. Is this idea that you're not god like you're thinking as led you to this point like can you at the very least even if you don't believe in god you don't have to grasp out yet just grasp you're not god in your maybe there's another way of thinking and approaching life and that's the second step that's what starts the process. That's why those steps are so cool because they're so compatible with everything it really is like the perfect baseline spirituality for everybody and then once you've done that you plug in your christianity you plug in whatever top of that and then you just guide life in that direction a spiritually broken some talking about the twelve step yeah. It's it's built unbroken this. Which by the way so as christianity is supposed to be. Yeah we turned it into like a faith of winning and winners. And i say the so many times but jesus was losing. Do you still identify as christian like if someone says. Are you religious. You say i'm christian..

"Love what you just said. Have you read the book four agreements. Yes i just got the audio book. And i've been listening to it over and over again trying to like really grasp it and understand it and that's kind of what it's all about to like. It's like you're born like dislike. You're born light. You're born this happy being and then society conditions you two and there's just so many agreements on a day to day it's like oh you suck it this and then you agree to. It's like bone that's locked in now and it's like trying to d program that and figure out who i am and stuff and it also demystify is reality like it's i was at a party. Last night was a lovely party. But we're having like kind of show biz discussion. Yes like a show biz discussion. And when i'm doing that. I like to go. Oh my god this is what the infinite undulating savage insane gorgeous frac deal of eternal is doing. Its thing this conversation because when you get locked into those conversations and they're good conversation. I'm not saying they're bad. Let's say we're talking about how head lassos a good show. Even now as we're speaking there are blue. Hindu gods infusing practical like it's happening and this is just what we're seeing. This is the channel that are receivers tuned to so. I'm looking at abbey on this couch so we can talk about farts dick's or whatever the fuck but like there's something i know you know it's really just under this. There's like fucking thing itself. Yeah like to ghostbusters. Guns hitting each other point where they hit each other and that's reality and if we zoom into that reality there's just sitting on the couch going so would you get into but like if you zoom out you and i make myself laugh all the time. So what i'm saying is those agreements that society makes you make makes you deeper. And deeper into into the illusion. Yes and you forget that you are. I like the mantra. I'm a point of sacrificial fire. Held within the fiery will of god right because that's similar to the two blasts of the ghostbusters go. You're like you're a spark flying from the to ghostbusters guns flying into each other. You're you're a spark of that. Your whole world is just a spark of two blasts of infinity rubbing up again rich other but in that spark there's a whole lot of bullshit school. Yeah where this boys don't pierce their left ear that or they're right here. That means you're gay. There's all this bullshit. The super bowl and pepsi presents doritos as like your future like xbox live and twitch in its and all of that gets you go into a contract with that and the more you get deeper into it the more you forget and to demystify it. We could just say that you're floating in infinity that you're floating in outer space that you're floating in iraq that no one knows what the fuck is going on here. Is that what we're saying. Yeah it's like it's almost. It's so overwhelming that we have these like this this illusion just so we don't just completely just drift off into. That's right wondering that's right. Yeah so that's impart the service of it. It's nice to go for a walk. You can get an ice cream. Yeah it is and valid. I have days where we go. No deep thoughts today because we do it so much. Let's just. Let's just enjoy the the orchard. Let's not worry who planted that sort of thing right but then. I think that gets overdone. Would you agree. It gets overdone to get where you're like. Of course there's nothing going on because you feel like a visitor here right. Yeah sometimes you've got to clock in and shut those thoughts off. Just be like all right. I gotta just kind of do my thing and then the other times you just wanna think about the world right. It's so crazy. Because i like i completely shut that part of my brain in my life off forever was just like like i just want to do comedy workout. Be a white american guy you know and now i'm just like i'm done with this. I'm how old are you. I'm thirty that's about right. Yeah yeah you did it. Yeah cove it. The lockdown really helped helped perspective. Yeah take the pause pause and reevaluate who were you. That was a spiritual experience for everybody whether they use spiritual language or not because you vanished. Abby roberto didn't exist pete. holmes didn't exist. Because pete holmes is a relationship pete. Holmes is an idea that is only affirmed by other people going european homes. And that's the same with you. Yeah and then when you're alone and you can't be in relationship with other people you're just you're just awareness and then and how many of us went like. Why am i. Flying to south dakota for four days and i'm bear in making like this much money after expenses and you're like why am i doing that all the time saying there isn't a time for that but i'm forty two so many people were like when this is over. I think i'm going to make my own bread. People's are making their own breads probably so many dad ship. Yeah like wait a minute life. My dad would make the best homemade bread. of course he did. Yeah the best he has. He has a starter grind we in the whole the whole deal and that's life what we're realizing is i'm preaching so much we're having our needs met as if the point of life is what happens after your needs are met yet but there's all of this art of like chop wood and carry water. Make bread you realize on a hike. It's not about getting to the destination it's about. The hike and spirituality is so much about being like spirituality is doing the dishes but now i have a dishwasher and then he started letting machine wash your dishes and then you're like well what do i do and it's like go on instagram. And like and wonder why we're depressed. We've completely lost so needs are so mad. They're selling thousand times over already and we're realizing the point of life isn't just meeting your needs how you meet your needs. And this goes back to the amish. It's not what you see. It's how you see it's like what do you see when you see what you see now. What you're looking at. We think it's what we're looking at a suicide squad and there was like slow motion. You're gonna forget it it's about converting and changing and plugging into a new way of seeing a lot of that comes from making goddamn bread..

"Let me let me put to you this way i to me. It's not important whether or not jesus of nazareth was murdered and then came back physically to life. It's very interesting to talk about. I like to lend myself to childlike wonder and belief and enjoy that patient and times. I go what's a metaphor. It's i'm all over the. Yeah i love all of it. Yeah but if you think about someone dying and then so that's nothing then becoming something right. That's what the whole fucking thing. The whole thing is resurrection the whole thing. Even the most materialist person says nothing became something so something dead became alive right. That's what they believe right. I'm not saying so. The the fundamentalist christians believe a dead thing became a living thing right. So does stephen hockey. Believe a debt thing. That's not just one man dying in coming back. That's the whole thing being dead. I've been trying to talk about this on stage i have. I'm actually doing largo tonight. It's a large bed. it's like a bit. I could only do right space to work like that. Ed not a date night outside our way. But i'm like whenever. I imagine the big bang i pictured darkness and then yeah but darkness isn't nothing of a million times on the show. Just want to hear what makes you think nothing. There is no nothing right. we have no nothing. Yeah you can't even picture nothing. I remember being. I went to like an orthodox hebrew day school like for nine years until high school so it was like a catholic school but for jewish jewish kids and i remember just when they said god's never not been here it was like i really like trying to taste infinity like what does that mean but before the before the before the before the before the it hurt my brain. Because i was like what do you mean always had been here. You know. And i feel like if you're a scientist or inclined towards theology or spirituality at some point you're going to bump up against absolute mystery absolute at some point. I don't know man. I know a couple. A couple of magnetism piece of art is an elaborate work of art we are. We're trapped elaborate lab at work of. Yeah that's like realizing where. I think we're in an artery. Well i meant to ask you about this. I don't like going down this that. I don't want to spend on this so i wanna. I wanna put an asterix by that time simulation theory. Sure i hate it. I hate it for lots of reasons. But one of the hilarious things comes back to richard. Is that the idea is we are a simulation. There's a there's a kid in a garage. Four thousand years from now who is created a world that we are in and he is the younger overlord of the world when he's not masturbating telling you go into pete's just absolutely exam really more likely he's just in a world that he can drop in wherever he wants to watch like a voyeur. But you're on autopilot. Right but the reason i want i hate this for many reasons but one of them is what richard says. We become the god we worship. Have you heard him say that would become the god. We worship so we become technology. Yeah who says that elon. Musk says that. Yeah the tech people say it's a simulator..

"He's being authentically him. I don't think he's censoring himself. I wanted to make a joke. Yeah i think michael back with someone said a minister i love is definitions are minister is someone who grows in public which i think on some level. We're both doing for sure letting people see like you're not going back and re editing news. You're like that's a record of two thousand fourteen. I might blush if i listened to it. Now yeah it was. I put this in my first movie. Happy thank you more police but someone said to me years ago and actress said life was just continue. He realized life was just continuing series of realizing. What an asshole. You were five years ago. So every five years john john josh. I tried to say that's wonderful. Yeah so i. I really think like if we're engaged in every five years and years you say right about the time your cells have completely replaced themselves. Like what the fuck was that other cellular. Yeah yeah so. That's it and that is not to be too hoity especially as we're doing it but i know my own ability Self deceive yeah. And i was like. Here's the record. How badly would you like to if you're like me. If my dad had a podcast. I listen to him talking We've been doing it for ten years ago. When he was thirty two. I could heard what he was going through. While i would've loved out and who care it's fine but maybe she's open tonight care what we're going to tell you. The watts thing remember microscopes telescopes beyond then. I'd i definitely feel like we're in a good area and i want to get you talking more. We're gonna like it. He goes if you could shrink yourself down microscopic and you were in an artery all you would see is death and destruction right. You just see microbes eating each other. It would be literally the worse dog-eat-dog nightmares either. You're like swooshing around an artery. You on your way on your million time back to the heart just to be squished back out here but everything around. You is eating everything and shitting it out. And then things eat the shed and then you get eaten them and you're shit out. Everything is death. Yeah and then you zoom out and you go. That's a healthy human body right. It's and that's i think that's what's going on here like i'm not here to say that this makes sense. This is a nightmare a. I'll give you a nightmare. If you give me majestic or breathtakingly beautiful. Yeah and that's where i think. I think i mentioned this last time. I think i mentioned that terence mckenna says the only thing to understand is that we are trapped in the area laboratory to understand that we are trapped in a very elaborate. Work of art. Wh- i i don't remember you saying that you also told me though about his big bang thing which is which is all the time. Which is if you if you permit us one miracle that one get one free miracle give us one. He's like there's there's nothing more preposterous. I defy you to think anything less likely to be believed the absolute limit test of credulity and the naysayers. The the and i run into fewer and fewer of these people but the people that are really like get real..

"I wonder i always have this. I'm i wonder if at the moment of death either right before or right after if there's a moment when when you see that all your grasping striving hunger anxiety fear morosi all those things that you could have done it without them. That by the way very similar to the jewish definite one of the jewish definitions of how that i learned in israel i was like what about hell i. I just wanted to ask everybody about hell. Yeah because nobody had illuminated me that it don't worry your friend who died in highschool isn't burning alive right right right so i was asking. Everybody and one of the rabbis wasn't rabbi was just a learned jewish man he was like when you die and you realize that god was there. Meaning love was there and you realize you've spent the whole time denying footprints. Yeah don't ruin the beautiful point. Let's go is what we're talking. That's the burn. I don't actually like this definition. But it's kinda cute as a poem. It's like the regret that you could have known that you were held right or you trusted. Yeah not known. Yeah we can't really know. I mean you can sort of no. I guess some people seem like really certain but like that's the regretted almost feel like they had to suffer in their way into the certainty. There's something about of course offering that. Is it peels away the illusions and at the base base of it. You find that love. That's it we have to subject ourselves to annihilation over and over until we find that which is indestructible. That's right you know. And that that's a real. That was like a psychedelic ship. Moment for me. Where you're tripping right mushrooms. And i saw it was like a jaguar. It wasn't even that vivid pretty small dose. I'm kind of like. I said a lightweight side kennesaw a little jaguar phantom and i it was look scary and i said what are you gonna get me and that is that was the lesson it was like nothing can get. You really are. Yeah that's true in this reality too. That's what you see when you're with the great. When you're with rhonda's this guy knows nothing can get what he really is. And that's jesus. He says strobe. He didn't know that you needed the stroke to get that. He was not his body. Right you know like when when i'm really am generally involving psychedelics but like when i'm really in that expanded state i'm like i could be crucified. Shot killed maimed. You know everything humiliated on the biggest public stage And also be okay like be okay like no that the hug that the divine is giving me is un will not ever stop right because it is you because it is in your reality. You are god. I was just thinking about that. So it's pretty basic new age. Blue fun spirituality. To say that god is the ocean. And your there's a drop of water and it's animating you but how can you divide infinity right so if god is infinity. That's why we say is the ocean or she is the ocean. And you have a drop of that in you. But how can you take just a drop of infinity. I believe it's julian of norwich said at my core. My identity is god. Think that's what she means. Can you take just a piece of infinity. it's either infinity or it's not so if there's a little piece of you that has god then that you're truest nature is infinity. Isn't it funny. If you actually just stay on the path. You're talking about like literally. Just just follow through follow through. You will arrive at a place where you articulate something like what you just said and to the cultural gatekeepers religious gatekeepers. They will call you a heretic right right because they depend on. Duality depend on separation. Because what would say in and out in a codependent. Yeah because then. I said this. I'm telling you the two times. I said something to him that he was like. I'm going to use that. But this ramdas he. They had a cat and it was overweight and big old round cat and they were like. Let's put the cat on a diet. So they started feeding cat less and after two months the cat had not lost a single pound and they were feeding it like a third of its diet swimming in water..

"Didn't know any black people lived in like a very white area league a white bubble and we're just really seeing i think representation in like a child's life is makes a big difference. It's really interesting. I think one of the fundamental fears is that if white people aren't winning them the whole thing will fall apart and then no one will be winning. That's what white people. I think that's part of white fragility is when i'm quiet with my own. Weird beliefs are things that i feel like we're handed to me is like yeah. The systems unfair but right. Now it's unfair in at least one group is winning. And if we try and stabilize all the levels then we'll all just be not winning and there won't even be in that it'll just which is an ran. Which is if you if you pay. If jeff bezos paid everybody three hundred thousand dollars. A year did quit like the whole thing will fall apart. It's a. it's a deeply sort of conservative republican belief. Like why don't you pay. You need to pay your employees just enough so they have to keep working for you but are relatively happy. 'cause if you give them a five hundred thousand dollars bonus they'll leave because they don't wanna work for you and then i don't know how those things are related but i think there's something really rotten in the roots which is like i think. Honks hungers honky. I'm just trying to keep trying to would like to look like they're helping but like would want would quietly wanna keep things the same but isn't that yes. I think that is true. And and they want to keep things the same even if they're not aware that they want to keep things at the same because it's so it's it's also exactly the nature of the human brain so if we make this like the masculine the logical thinking brain against her versus the feminine inclusive receiving flexible adaptable brain. Feeling brave. you. Are it the way that your brain often keeps control. Valerie doesn't share with your body is by saying well. At least we're doing it if we can't trust the the whole system you're blowing my deck. We took control are blowing like blowing my brain blowing my hat. I but i said dick for some reason and blowing as a sex act. I'm just saying you're brilliant. The struggle between who gets the power in culture is also the struggle of who gets the powering control in your one body. Yeah your heart as would say wants to give away the store. Let the homeless person sleeping under street common. Your house is breaking her heart. that's us. Yeah i love everyone give it away and the head says that person could be unsafe. We need to save money. Winter is coming. You can lose your. And that's very the brain even tricks you by being like i know it's not a perfect system but we can't trust that gushy guide that's right or and we can't trust the body the body like feels like we're dying time the super wanna give the keys to the guy in the suit. The thing. the part of us that in the supermarket heard a song play when really inserted crying. As we know that like the brains misinterpretation of what the body is doing if it actually would. Just give the body the microphone. There's there's no problem right. It's the brain freight wedging in ends. I feel like that somehow still works at the metaphor for this. We're just talking about I lost it because i was worried. I interrupted you. And then i lost it. No we were. Just oh when how we feel like. It's not always good culturally to show your feelings. And i will concede to that. Sometimes other people's feelings makes me uncomfortable because often my own feelings make me uncomfortable. And it's interesting. I i wonder what you think about this. I was i think i will have to or i. Let's put it this way. I think it would be wise to teach leela that there are some situations for example. Your house is on fire. Now is not a good time to go. Oh darling this is so sad you have to get your social security card or whatever you're going to rescue your cat and get out of the house but there's other situations that aren't as immediate as a fire where you do have to go. Let's say you are in a job interview and someone does hurt your feelings i. It's just a it's part of being the human animal. And i really want to hear what you think about this. The ability and i know women do this. I'm not even saying it's a guy thing to hit pause on a feeling because that's if you're an attempt situation you're gonna finish the thought the job interview they say something that's condescending or mean or hurtful unintentionally. You can't cry. There's no crying in baseball meaning. Sometimes you need to learn to to do what men traditionally do way too much which is compartmentalized and deny their feelings for later. Let's process this later. Yeah well that's that's such an interesting question. The first thing that comes to mind is the whole. You can't cry in a job. Interview is because men have built the system. If women built the system maybe we would be like. Hey you're a full spectrum person you can have your. Your emotions are welcome here. I'm not threatened by them. It's interesting as you say that. I can immediately picture a job interview if it's not but you're talking about emotional wholeness. If in the job interview we start talking about family. And i started telling you that my mom passed away and i start crying. I think we're in a culture. Currently that could value that. But if i start telling you like what are you going to do this. And this and this. And i'm like give you three things and you get so overwhelmed that you start crying you might be like well i don't i don't think you have the fortitude these the code words we use and you don't have the skill to postpone your feelings until after the task is accomplished if every guy or or woman every person on an i beam building skyscraper was going like i saw a lady bug and it reminded me of that summer in in rhode island and he starts crying and he drops a blow torch on. Somebody's had. this is a cliche but like wear in. All of our embodiment talk. Is it good to have some of that like it's not what's happening right now because it's sort of what i do for a living. Is i show up somewhere. No matter how. I'm feeling. I look for the funny version of me and that's not just boys entertainers all public speakers all clergy nor people who present or all people have to show all. Barbara's do this. They can't all beauty technicians. Do this all manicurist to this. They have to go now. Isn't the time to be a mess. Yeah i think that there is I think that's the thing is full having so many things about this. The one the first thing i was going to say is i feel like. There is an Attuned embodied way. And and i do practice it To say okay. I see you thank you for letting me know you're there. I will get you somewhere safe where we can which is like. That's how i feel if something comes up even when i'm like for example when i was in texarkana For my my grandpa's funeral. And i was in so many situations with with people. Even though they were family members that i was like. I can't my feelings. Aren't entirely safe here so i have to just go and i have to wait and manage it so you are working with the whole system. You're not just. But i was gonna say the second part of that is there is validity to it to this point and i want to be careful because the that is like the thinkings mind the thinking minds storytelling about why we can't trust the body or trust feelings as it's like and if you think about like traditional like misogynistic even relationships where it's like will women are hysterical. We can't trust them to do anything they'll be so emotional time. What if they get their periods. Whatever so i just really really don't want to fall into that myth because the truth is if you are embodied and you're working with your whole system including the brain but it's just one of the factory workers it's not the ceo Then you then. There is a way of like managing it in a really healthy way. It's funny as i was. We started talking about this. I'm glad we did. I was like who better than women know how to hit pause on a feeling. Yeah i was like. That's a female cliche. You know what i mean. Yeah manner doing it unconsciously This is a generalization. But i feel like women are doing it consciously. Yeah and more often. I think that's true and like parents know have to do this all the time. Like your kids feelings. Gonna take the the goof leila's having really big feelings. Of course. I have feelings about those feelings. But like i have to wait. That's right a minute. Her field she starts crying. And then i started crying. It's like this is. This is helpful to anybody..

"Look who's fucking smart. Here is another little bit bars bars. Our tastic our perfectly. I love it so much joy just to dry joyful you and before i met reggie i loved his special. I just like. It's exactly what i'm into. Which is just like pure silliness here. Sally i think maybe i told you somebody. We had two specials. Come out the same time reggie and i who i keep meaning to say this. He would wave and talk to everybody in the way that most people friendly open hearted people. Or that's not fair. A lot of people wave at are happy to see babies. Reggie appears to be that way about everyone. And i i. It's weird. I don't want people that hang out with me to feel like they're going to be reported on. But i'm only an extra special dude. Well when you hang out with somebody where you're like fuck man. I guess like it's always my hope. Is that you spend enough time trying to raise your vibration. Open your mind. Let the light in. It's nice to see somebody ahead of me. In that regard. This is why it's so nice to hang out with rob rob l. From time to time or whoever it might be but reggie is definitely just. He's not on a religious trip. he's he's just it's just being done with him. I'm not gonna say yeah. He's participating with music with art with whatever he's up to and it's and it's working it's really fun to see. Yeah that's like encouraging to me. Because as you and i were always talking about the remembering and forgetting and one of the best things you're remembering hanging out with somebody who's remembering although i was just talking to my brother about how what a burden can be and i was so touched that he related to those when i meet somebody in my sine wave is up and i'm my best self and i hugged them and i'm literally almost like on drugs. Like enamored with them in love their shoes and think their name as cool and then i might make plans to hang out with that person and then on that day. I don't feel like that guy and this is like one of the lonely weird things that tends to run in. The homes bloodline which is like we distrust like. Of course you loved my best self. And now i live in fear that you won't like my real self it took. Hey that's the sweet. I appreciate it. The reason i say it's okay is because even this admission is the working on it right. Meaning i now have you. Mike for big leah. The gunners have people now pretty good bench in my life And the people that aren't on that bench probably my fault. I mean what i'm saying. Is the benches people that will accept me and enjoy lunch with me. Even if i'm not like spoons are great of flattened out for the yet gently delivers food. We like first of all. That's not even everybody's not. I think i'm not even clear on what people like about me. And then if you dig deep enough you get to a place where you're like well. Nobody really likes me. You know what. I mean that that's how i don't really believe that but i think somewhere deep down if a lot of us look there might be a feeling. I don't know how we got here but here we are now and i really think that's valuable and interesting. I'm sure you're not the only one that feels that. I guess that's why i brought it up when i said it to my brother and he related that the bestself makes plans that less than bestself has to follow through with. And that was the pattern of standup. Mrs weird way that my i'll say damaged because i find it empowering to consider it damage the way that my damage informed my standup life was at stanford is all about making plans when you're high when you're feeling powerful and then following through with them when you're feeling low. That's i think that's what i would say. The job being stand up. Comedian is until you point you. You do it for twenty years. And i can you know go and do a show and i can surrender more like if it goes greater. Doesn't go great. It's less about me than i'd even like to think it is but the first ten years at least is like someone asks you and you're feeling confident or maybe you're just faking confidence. And they're like do you wanna do this weird outdoor trailer park show and you're like yeah and then as you're driving news like fuck. No which is why. I gravitate towards other comedians. Who tend to be like anxious. If you don't wanna talk about how bad the show could go. I don't really wanna hang out with you. Which i don't think that's a surly. Yes from listening to me or knowingly. It'd be like i bet your guy that's like this is going to go great and i'm like actually one of the ways that i make great as i really lower my expectations well and it is interesting. Because i've seen this happen before where you are wanting. You are saying things to the other comedians about lake. This audience sounds terrible. This isn't going to be good and like it. I know that that makes you like you just said that makes you feel safer about it. You can even you can see like how that might be the exact opposite way that somebody get psyched up to do a show. I get psyched down. Yeah myself down to do a show not always but often the ones that i psych myself up for like. I've said this a million times. I wanna go up on stage at a deficit and win at back onstage. I could imagine how like if i were doing it. I would have to feel like. I was super empowered and not at a deficit to even to even do anything like i feel like i'm i'm going to show you guys how good i am at this which i guess you are still doing. If you're an yes yes. And i think is important. If it's my show i go to chicago. I'm playing theater. I'm like it's gonna be fucking great. Yes but i'm talking about like you're dropped in. I was just talking to greg fitzsimmons and the edwards and laura bites about. This and i was like so much comedy. Is this interruption. We were talking about shows where they turn off the. Tv's grown where they stop dancing. Or i think..

"This is the denouncing all. It's it's like if our daughter leila you know. It's how i would feel about her like i will remind you that you are safe and loved as many times as it takes no problem. I love reminding you. You know that was the feeling. And that's alone new when you share that devotional practice which a may adopt as well well and the fact. Because you're the god of your childhood. There's something so innocent and true about it That that love is living through everything and we have to find the ways of what we turn towards. It most gives us access like for me. I have a tree a false. And here. And i've been cultivating this love relationship. That was already there with the tree. But i'm just waking up to it more that we're very in relationship you know it depends on me to live. I breathe within the oxygen from it but more than that. I just in some way. I actually say i love you. May you do well. And and in saying that and feeling it loving me like just supposing that loves me and i know how this can sound to some people but just assuming it loves me actually wakes up the realness of relatedness and i had an interesting experience. I was listening to a podcast about a physicist. His name is and i'm looking at the book right now. Because i just got his book. Carlo rosella held the land so here is one of the most brilliant physicists in terms of understanding contemporary physics in the world. And he's you know making all these breakthroughs about quantum theory and his deepest breakthrough that is circulating. now has to do with everything in the universe. Being in relationship with everything else that it doesn't matter what location two separate disparate objects are and they're not objects they're not separate and they only exist in relatedness to each other you know and and one little very brief anecdote details is. He writes beautifully. He says he cannot go speak to people online or in person until he's i gone outside. Wherever he is found a tree touched. It felt the inspiration. Oh that tree. And that gives them a feeling of belonging and empowerment and happiness is as he walks away smiling and then he can go speak so we need to find the pathway of connection that that souza's that wakes us up whether it's you know comedy club or wherever. Yeah yeah. Yeah with the ocean with the trees and then people yes start with the ocean right one of the reasons we like the ocean as because it's so clear that you're in relationship to the whole ocean. You know like one of the practices that is sometimes you as you think of the air as gelatinous. You know if you if you could just trying to point out myself and others that the air is made of the same atoms you're made of though it's not like there's real and then there's like nothing doesn't exist like we don't have a scientific basis for nothing i i. I don't know if that's entirely true. But like everything is something even what we perceive is. Nothing is is something because even if it is just a relationship of this as zero and this is a one. I'm out of my depth. Were were in an ocean right now. It's that what the hell is. Water thing yeah. No it's beautiful cousin. Would it just saying there's no distress Discreet separate object unto itself. nothing exists unto itself. the waves are all belong are made of ocean and belonging to ocean Yeah i vowed. I wanna give you because we're almost out of time but i wanna give you time to ask questions. I did want to ask one last. Well i really have two things. I you ask your question. Okay if you if you have one or two. Obviously as many as you like. When i wanted to say just because you're a teacher and you might enjoy this You were talking about like we know deep down that we that there's something bigger going on This was a long time ago. You said this and again. It's richard roy's like every fairytale it's it someone realizing that they're born from divine from royal blood. Even harry potter is a young boy who realizes his father was the great wizard. And it's like why do we keep telling the story. It's because it's your story you realize that you are blood is divine that your parents are the universe itself and mike you need to wake up to your own son or daughter of god. Nece isn't isn't that just fun and totally resonates is true. It's one of the great. You know you see through history of people thinking that that either and sometimes it's the parent thinking. This isn't my kid because the child does not represent the beauty and the sacredness that they think that they should give birth there. I've seen it's really true. we have. it's both truth and distortion. 'cause you know we also have a An inflation that feel special because we own that nobility and we own that it's like the consciousness of the universe moves through us and then we own it and it becomes inflation but if we just get at that's our that's our birthright and it it's our assets then it's actually empowering right well that's mb here now. It's one of my again i. It's a very funny standup bet. It's like tara brach can't said at the right hand of god because that's what psychosis like you don't make the journey a you realize you try and bring if i try and bring pete holmes. It's christian imagery but to the right hand of god. That's literally a cliche of an insane person. Art if you realize. I am divine and i'm also not divine. It's it's a it's a paradox. it's like i am an to say. I'm not in p doesn't enlightened. But i am. It's sorta like both. Both things are true. Like pete certainly not but but the big i is made of enlightenment. Love it yeah. There's actually does lead to to something that i wanted to bring up which is kill ken. Wilber has the idea of like cleaning up before you wake up. And i think that there's we love like colts documentaries and so often the cult leader is touching on some profound truth. But what's helped me kind of an for a long time. I couldn't reconcile that that was breaking my brain And and now. I'm starting to understand that there's like if you jump straight to like crowned shaqra absolute truth stuff without doing the necessary cleaning up and the necessary Witnessing the ego and its patterns than it can almost like give the ego some of these delusions of grandeur basically your And that aunt or a can. And i've experienced this with trying to i jump to crown. Shocker stuff it can be way too scary. Just like there's no grounding and i'm seeing too much too fast and so maybe that you know what i'm experiencing or what i experienced psychedelics or something is true but i was already living from the neck up and and was ignoring my body and so it was. It was not integrating in a healthy way. And that's what i love this. This is where you're working. And jack's work kind of entered. Where at first. Even with buddhism..

As long as two people are singing it together. That don't normally like like the brothers aren't to do like we do to similar. Yes singing assam. You're on a road trip with somebody who says their favorite music is duets. If you go to the nearest gas station and our tune style kick them out of boots. That's great call newburgh but cartoon style kidding them out with the boot and saying sorry this duet car ride just became a solo and we allow. It's your own fault when you wake up at about full of ice like that person. I'm say it does love to see your path who clearly doesn't enjoy music. Because they're sociopath would make up that say like so what would you the duets. It's a abreast. Feels like a bag of sand. I'd say it's slowing or person is alien and has completely is trying to be human and can't it reminds me of being in junior high and thinking like what kind of person will i be. We were just talking about this in our parenting clouds. This morning We take a parenting class. Shakespeare said the lies the parenting class. But just how like the reason why our possessions means so much to us is because they're extensions of our identity and that is accurate tollway and that's why like the difference between someone stole my car or someone stole the car. It's so different. Yeah a monologue on property ownership during the the last we were over five. Min- is like during those things talk about gender norms. I'm trying to walk the line between The gender stereotype that i'm going to talk too much And be like tried to assert myself over the vulnerable Sorta spacious. I don't wanna say feminine. A spacious and lovely. It's so spacious and levied threatens me as a man so the way i'll protect myself. I'll tell lots of stupid stories. And i'll start talking about my parents instead of just like owning up to how i'm raising donner. So that's one of my moves aware of is talking too much. Then i'm like. I'm gonna talk very little but then i'm also very aware that that's another choice is the and i'm sure she tarrant. Our teachers sees that a lot is the guy. I'm guessing the guy who doesn't participate and that's also defense so i haven't been talking very much. I was talking when asked questions and stuff. But then i was like fuck. I don't know if she feels appreciated. And i do appreciate her. And i so i was like the only thing i can think to add as little little aria. I did sing it quickly. Asama bagga digs. That's really interesting and what great self-awareness as usual. And i didn't really know you were like mentally going through those dynamics while we were there i mean i try to. I'm just trying to think of how. I can support you in that i. She asks the question. I usually try to allow you to go first. But then i realized i'm just balancing like. Does he want to go first or do you want to. I want you to go first to be honest in our parenting styles I really am skiing. And i'm deleting a lot just like at skier. I'm not thinking about the tree that you just pat. Yeah and that's that's a cool way of saying i'm forgetful or or like i'm not paying that close of attention and i'm also like full of shit. I'm a bag of put me to your lips. is that like. There's constantly a reality reframing program running that will sort of say no matter what we're doing with leila it's right. Yeah often in our parenting classes. It's confirmed that a lot of what we're doing is good yup but You are a better record keeper and that's really valuable so she says like how's it been going with a i'll answer honestly that it's been going perfectly and then you'll be like well. She did find that switchblade. She threw it into my foot. And i'll be like oh right. Yes so i'm just trying to yeah i got it. That's that's interesting. Yeah which actually.

Seattle still reeling from year of violent protests
"Seattle In the last year, we watched us some peaceful demonstrations evolved into riots, Destruction and violence. Doubles Jonathan Show looking at where protests go from here. Day after day night after night weeks, turning into months of protests, and then we've seen various leaders come and go, including City Council member Shama so want directing hundreds of people into city Hall. This moment, rallying cries are constantly changing. Moment. It's black lives matter and calls for homeless reform. Then it's to fund the police and raise the minimum wage, public parks and city blocks occupied and overrun the homes of elected officials like the mayor and Amazon CEO Jeff Bezos. All targets. Various groups continue to peacefully march while a mob dressed in black now remains a constant threat. Representing a violent and volatile mix of activism nearly one year after George Floyd's death sparked social justice demonstrations and emboldened others to mobilize Seattle is exhausted and wounded. Many city leaders remain silent and on the sidelines from the business community to neighbors living in hot zones like Capitol Hill. We absolutely not taking it anymore. Victoria Beach says She's trying to create a united front in her neighborhood. But the chair of the Seattle Police Department's African American Community Advisory Council is struggling to find others. Willing to courageously stand by her side. We have the power to stop it. So why aren't we coming together? We need every public official in Seattle to draw a really clear bright line and condemn. Violent acts. John Schools, the CEO and president of the downtown Seattle Association, he says it's hard enough for business is recovering from covert 19 profit losses. But when violent protesters continue to target the downtown core, that is gonna hold back recovery. It's time to stop any. If not, you're gonna go to jail and we will prosecute you. During last month's press conference, in from Seattle police chief Adrian de has once again made a clear distinction between peaceful marches. The ones led by groups dressed in black. They've tied up. A lot of our resource is DEA says Officers will continue to monitor evolving demonstrations adapt and be prepared for all scenarios. So we do have sufficient amount of officers even personally, asked the attorney, Pete Holmes, to get tougher and more consistent. With protests related prosecutions. The police are doing what they can what they're told to do with the courts or are telling them to do, which means no more tear gas for crowd control. But law enforcement consultant Jim Feudal believes the city will remain in a vicious cycle. Until these people are prosecuted and held accountable. I don't see anything changing after all the social unrest and ongoing protests Address. Your success remains undefined in elusive. One thing is clear. It's difficult to predict the future of demonstrations in Seattle, but history has a tendency to repeat itself. Seattle, Jonathan Show. Comeau News update Now to breaking news.

One on one with Seattle's interim police chief
"The Seattle City Council is considering yet another budget cut to the Seattle Police Department a move that I suppose we should not find surprising. It's a preemptive cut of over dollars. This, of course, on top of what was previously cut, and of course, it has implications. Joining me on the line is interim police chief Adrian Diaz. Ideas. Welcome back to the show. Welcome. Thank you for having me. I really appreciate you taking the time. So what is the $5.4 Million cut mean in terms of public safety? Yeah. You know, we have had, you know some cuts last year. At the end of their session, Another $2 million and some of the other additional cuts that they have This 5.4 million is just One of those things that we're trying to just kind of stabilize our efforts and our hiring efforts. We have some other crude costs that come up. We have You know, we've had a lot of people leave our department. So we had to pay additional money out in separation pay. We've had people because we have Ah, younger workforce, eh? So we've had people that go out on pay parental leave. And so this is some of that money that you know can you know, cover those costs, But we've also had, you know, we really tried to focus our efforts because we've lost a lot of sworn officers. Hiring additional civilian positions that conduce you of riot different works from CSOs, our community service officers, crime prevention coordinators. And you know that you know another additional cut with a lot wouldn't Wouldn't allow us to be able to hire for some of those civilian positions that are so desperately needed. So they've also effectively cut your overtime budget. So how does that work? Because you've got a dwindling for she lost What? 197 police officers last year I'm told that the numbers are still going down. You lost about 20 this month. I don't know if that's been confirmed yet, but you know you've had to use over time as a result of that, of course. Also you had a lot of instances of unrest that you were staffing. So what exactly is the plan this year? Yeah. You know, we've we've actually had to make some obviously some some adjustments. You know, when I moved 100 officers back into patrol we created during that same time we created a community response group. That has been able to handle 911 calls but also be able to, you know, work and deal with the demonstrations, some that direct action that has been occurring for the last several months. And that has helped us out immensely having a group or squad or units that are able to, um Be able to respond to that direct action that is actually limit that's actually pared down some of our overtime. But as we see more people leave the department. You do have to figure out ways that you can have personnel, you know, sure that up, and that means that you know if we have this level of direct action occurring, you know, luckily not on a nightly basis, but it's been enough. Where it impacts our ability to go out and do proactive public safety on destroying to recover guns off the street because we've had an all time high when it came to about an all time high, but 28 year high Yes. You know, we've tracked. You know our shots fired. Going up are you know homicides going up and so we've got to figure out how do we get? Our resource is back into just doing police work so we can Get some of these guns off the street when part of the issue is and you know you made a point to discuss this over the weekend is you'll make arrest. Your officers will make arrest and then nothing really happens. And so you kind of got a little bit of Ah, potential fight brewing with Pete Holmes, Seattle City attorney. You announced this new policy that he will actually prosecute the vandalism by some of these anti for groups and other agitators. His office has since come out and said, there's no new policy. It sounds like someone's playing a game of semantics here. So what was your conversation with him like between inauguration night violence that that broke out which you indicated? That's when the conversations started to happen? At least and your press conference? What was the conversation? So you know, I'm not going to speak for homes. What I can say is that e think we can all agree that the actions of the direct direct action of these groups that have you know Been breaking windows and created property damage and assaulting, you know, people, there's no tolerance for it. Um And I do think that you know Pete Holmes had mentioned they not gonna prosecute peaceful protesters. We don't arrest people protest. Yeah, Exact. That is not what our focus is. You know, our focus is literally trying to make sure that people that are committed to property damage. Uh, that we address those issues, you know, right away, and and so you know, and we've we've taken you know some different approaches over the last several Uh, months to try and reduce the confrontation between our officers Because direct action. People are looking for that confrontation. And so you know, we've we've taken a different stands on it. And actually Wednesday, the Wednesday case on Inauguration day he did charge and so I'm grateful for that. We have to put good cases you know, together and making sure that officers when they do arrest somebody. They have all the elements of the crime and and I will keep on pushing that our officers need to go out and do their job and making arrests in and try to Fine cases. And then I'll work with Pete Holmes on a case by case basis of making sure people are held
Amid muted response from Seattle City Hall, more weekend protests possible
"Protests were held in downtown Seattle today. Only a couple dozen people showed up. Things remain peaceful. But if that ever changes, police chief Adrian DEA says. This time, it'll be different. We looked at up into early December we made close to 600 arrests. And write different demonstrations, and many of the misdemeanors hadn't been prosecuted. But you know now we have the city attorney's office is willing to work with us. Lack of prosecution from the Office of City Attorney Pete Holmes has been one of the main criticisms of how Seattle has handled the protests.

The local, national, and global fight over 5G infrastructure
"The. The fight over five g. infrastructure is about the digital divide corporate handouts city, and state's rights and China. So basically hot mess from American public media. This is marketplace tech demystifying. The digital economy I'm Ali, would. The whole multi trillion dollar promise of five g. and its millions of jobs and new businesses is all just a pipe dream without infrastructure. Unlike four g. which can be delivered through a relatively small number of tall towers, five g. wireless service relies on lots and lots of small receivers placed fairly close together and installing all those little five g. cells is turning into a big fight, booze being done at the expense of cities that are already overburdened, trying to deal with homelessness and host of problems cross the country. This is Pete Holmes, the city attorney in Seattle, Seattle's one of several cities fighting a new order from the Federal Communications Commission that puts a federal cap on how much city can charge. When a company wants to put a five g. receiver on public property, we have to essentially give up our property rights are property values to benefit private. Companies that will be doing the expansion. The FCC says, cities like Seattle are charging excessive fees and the flat rate would save telecom companies about two billion dollars. So they could afford to build infrastructure all over the country, including traditionally underserved rural areas. Here's Brennan car, the FCC Commissioner who initiated the new order. He says, it's also the key to beating China trying to beat us to five g. what that fight looks like is largely infrastructure battle right now. They're deploying small sales cell sites out the building block needed for five Jeep, somewhere around twelve times the pace at we've been doing it in the US and largely that was due to our outdated permiting processes and regulatory red tape. Look, we can cut all the red tape we want, but there's no way that the US is going to compete with China in five g. that's Mike, Dana editor in chief of the wireless industry publication, fierce wireless. He says, China, indirect way, more government resources and. Double up way more users than the US ever can. Our biggest obstacle sustain. Oh, is that the rollout of five g. has become shockingly politicized? You've seen it argued as a national security issue because if the United States doesn't deploy five g. fast enough than China will and that will put China ahead of us in terms of technological capabilities, give seen it argued as a national security element in terms of, you know, having a nationwide five network will will make things safer. You know, we'll we'll support Thomas cars and that'll that'll reduce traffic accidents. But all this raises the question, if five is such a big deal economically and in terms of security, should the federal government pay for it here? Seattle, Pete Holmes. Again, you know, our whole interstate highway system was underwritten by the federal government. That's why we have such good heads such good infrastructure back in January, the Trump administration actually floated the idea of secure national five g. network Brennan car from the FCC. Says, there is no way that's going to happen, but he said there are already existing federal funds to build out internet and five g. access, especially in rural areas. Although those funds are small compared to the four hundred billion dollars, China has directed toward five g. over just five years. And now for some related links, honestly, maybe we don't want so much internet a story in the Atlantic yesterday, terrifyingly details all the ways that teenagers are using Instagram to bully each other. Like by setting up anonymous profiles, just to hate on someone or sending a constant barrage of messages or tagging each other with bullying comments. Now, reading it, I did feel like you could substitute the word internet for Instagram in a lot of those places actually substitutes smartphones, and then you're really getting to the heart of the matter. But I can't say I don't see potential problems with how my tweet son is using Instagram mostly because yes, he and all his friends are using it parent company, Facebook actually announced earlier this week that it will use artificial intelligence to scan photos to detect bullying that has had mixed results in the past. I don't know. I mean, I don't know the answer, but I gotta say it doesn't feel like five g.. Going to make us nicer and speaking of name calling around about way. Lots of you wrote in after I talked about the dilemma yesterday of whether to call myself a nerd, lots of you do support the idea that we should let our nerd flags fly, but I thought about how I've used it in the past, and it's true that when I said it, it was sort of self mocking. So from now on, I will only call myself a nerd when I'm feeling really awesome about it, which to be honest is pretty much all the time. I'm Molly would, and that's marketplace tech. This is APN.
