Unfortunately, or fortunately, I cannot write freely at my IRL business without a negative impact. It seems people do not want to think, they want to do what feels good in the moment, they want to be lied to, to attach themselves to a fad for a time.
This breaks my heart, as I see the value in detaching from myself to see how I’m lying to myself, and how I’m being lied to. This ties in with fitness and training very well: science and reality go together, it’s us that needs to align with reality. Wasn’t in Feynman that said we must not fool ourselves, and we are the easiest ones to fool?
Either way, I will not abandon but search further. There is a connection somewhere that explains what’s going on. I come back to Taleb’s thoughts on “King first, philosopher second.” Mike will be the king, ThinkySpaceMan will be the philosopher. I cannot keep myself from it.
We will see how this duality plays out.
Forecast: It goes well.
