Is there a need for gods or a god? More accurately, is there a need for a transcendental reality or transcendental ideals; a reality or ideals that is more than just mere existence. It's odd that removing god and the worship of god from people doesn't necessarily lead to a more rational society, people just find other things to worship. As an atheist I think I should explore this topic more.
The East and The West took different approaches to gaining knowledge and understanding reality. Lately, I find myself going through my Eastern philosophy studies in order to make sense of the chaos around us. I find that Western philosophy (sharp and powerful as it is as an intellectual tool) is somehow ill-equip in understanding the deepest and grandest mysteries of the universe and that of reality.
Conversations about immigration in The West has devolved into hysteria and derangement. No rational conversation is possible for whites, lest they be called racists or xenophobes. So it's time I weigh in on the topic of immigration as an immigrant in The West.
At the time of this writing, I've been eating 1 meal a day for 3 years. I discovered that the conventional wisdom of eating 3 meals a day is unnecessary, almost decadent especially for people whose activity is mostly comprised of short walks, a lot of time sitting in front of their desks, and maybe 1-2 hours of workout at the end of the day.
Everybody wants to lose weight, but so few consider eating 1 meal a day. Instead, these people are advised to eat multiple small meals a day and consume "health foods" such as protein shakes and granola bars. Insane.
There's a big difference between the external world (objective reality, the realm of forms) and the internal world--which have been called in many different ways, the mind, the self among others. Why is this important? In postmodern world where people purposely blur the distinction between the domain of forms and the domain of non-forms, it becomes important to observe these 2 seemingly opposite worlds. "Seemingly opposite", because that is not the accurate way of thinking about it.
The Arrest of Tommy Robinson marks the end of The West as we know it. If Western nations continue on this path, this marks the beginning of the odd and slow demise of The West. I hope I'm wrong. First it's in the UK, then it will spread through Europe. And if North America don't learn from this, we'll be seeing North America suffer the same fate as their European counterparts.
Elon Musk in one of his interviews talked about reasoning from first principles. By virtue of who he is, I think he popularized thinking from facts or objective thinking. The internet just took his word for it. Just search "reasoning from first principles" and you'll find Elon Musk with it. The question is, how do you exactly reason or think from first principles? In this episode, we're going to explore reasoning from first principles in greater detail.
Saying things that people generally don't want to hear includes consequences like being doxed, censored, business taken away, opportunities lost, or worst physically harmed. The so called left has morphed into this dangerous entity. I used to hide from it with a psuedonym as a shield. But no more. Here I am. I use my face and my name. I want to be as open as possible to develop that trust with listeners who may stumble on this podcast.
When it comes to politics and the normal person I see no f*cks given, for the most part. Politics seems like this toxic brew that people try to avoid at all costs, even at the cost of their freedoms and ultimately their lives. If it was up to me, I would just get rid of governments and the politics that come with it, but I don't have any better or viable alternative. And so, I must participate in politics best I can.
Here are 3 reasons why should care about politics. And another 3 reasons why you should care about US politics in particular.
Aiming for the truth in a postmodern world is like aiming at a moving target, standing on a boat on a stormy sea. We have information, yes. But weather that information is valid or true, is a totally different question.
When we say true, what do we mean? When we say facts, what is it? What's the difference between facts, evidence, and proof? How about believing and knowing? What's the difference? These are important distinctions that must be made especially if we're searching for truth.
