Follow us on a journey towards self-discovery!
Today Falk Kastell helps me better understand what intuition is and how it can work in every-day life. William's heavy intellectual propensity makes it a challenge for him to come to terms with subconscious signals and relying on them to make decisions. Let's see whether Falk can assist him in raising his awareness and expanding his personal capacity for multi-faceted perception.

Falk and William discuss the current state of the world in terms of the progress of technology vs. human connection and respect for nature, being attentive to intutions vs. being driven by cerebral messaging, praising the economy as humanity's highest good vs. personal relationships and development, and many other things.

After travelling from Venis to Kahira to the lost city of Du-En, Steven and William are confronted with a mystical cave that is supposed to contain the heart of Volent, a meteorite that allegedly grants powers of godhood. This is the final battleground of our adventure, where we and several other serious raiders are in a deadly competition to obtain inifinite power. Who can we trust? How many times will we die on our way through th...
Having reached the docks at Venis, Steven and William set out to cross the Mediterranean sea to reach Egypt. Will they be able to buy the items they need to cross the freezing Sahara? Or will they run into even more trouble than in the past? They have very little money to go on. But perhaps the peculiar ID card that they found previously will again grant them access to a local facility of the elite Compass Club.
Today Mr. INTP and I talk about the relation between reality and our capacity to grasp it, how our knowledge of the world is based on the scientific method, and how common it is for you and me to base our entire thinking and decision-making on theories that may be internally consistent but are not provably true; they have merely not been falsified... yet.

After failing their last attempt at surviving the frozen Sahara, Steve and William restart the adventure story "Heart of Ice". This time reversing their roles of reader and decider, they follow a differnt path of treachery and peril, this time as an explorer character. Will they achieve their goal of staying alive for an entire episode, or will they have to cheat and undo some of the decisions that led them to unexpected de...
Kade Roundy and I follow up on our previous discussion (Ep. 10) about the principles of libertarian, government, war, ethics and societal values. We approach these topics in the context of humanity's vulnerability to deception. People's beliefs and behaviours can be manipulated by messages of false history, false news-reporting, false scientific publishing, etc. Through various historic examples and personal experiences we ...
For a change, Steve and I are reading from an adventure book in which you can choose your own path: "Heart of Ice" by Dave Morris. Not only are there many ways to die, but there are multiple possible outcomes of the overall story. Follow us on an adventure of travelling through treacherous terrotories including the icy desert of futuristic Northern Africa.

Today we discuss how different approaches to wealth and the accrual of wealth can be a two-edged sword. Are you getting rich by exploiting other people? Or are you building your financial independence by helping others achieve their own as well? We consider how our psychology towards money can have a great effect on our well-being and direction in life.

Craig Irving and I exchange our views on the terrible trends around the world:
It is difficult not to conclude that behind such seemingly random happenings is a global central force with its own ideology and agenda for humanity as a whole.
OCD is often misrepresented in the media. Whath is really behind the ritualistic actions that affected persons feel compelled to do to quell their unease? How does it feel to have unwanted, recurring thoughts? What is the source of this disorder? If you are affected, how can you turn a seeming weakness such as OCD to your own advantage, in order to develop yourself into something greater?

Mr. INTP and I discuss biological and philosophical views of epistemology and personal identity: What can I truly know for certain? How do my beliefs and my biology confine my sense of identity? How can they be changed to expand my view of the world and myself?
We often perceive a plethora of options and choices to be freeing and empowering. But not only is this relative to our cultural expectations, it can even be counter-productive to be confronted with too many things to choose from. Our discussion of realities and illusions concerning freedom of choice is based on the TED talk "The art of choosing" by Sheena Iyengar (see link below).
The PCR method has been abused to test for Covid-19 by exaggerating the method's number of amplification cycles. The degree to which human genetic material is thus magnified leads to the test being overly sensitive and sky-rocketing its false postive rate. Should this cause concern for the centralisation of political power over our economies that has been justified by saving the lives of citizens, or are the lockdowns worth the...
Today we discuss the concept of freedom, including questions around
* self-determination vs. being a product of my environment
* autonomy vs. being parented by the state
* representative vs. direct democracy
* epistemic vs. ontological uncertainty
William and Dr. Kade Roundy from Texas discuss the range of perspectives among people from different countries and different political persuasions. Is socialism what the Soviets had or what Scandinavians now have? Is it economic solidarity or the beginnings of a dictatorship?
Continuing the topic of mental health, William and Steven talk about their experiences with anxiety and its consequences in every-day life.
