  4. https://loopvids.s3.amazonaws.com/Feb04_Post.mp4 Way back in the day, we humans didn't have a lot of extra thinking time. For example, we were hungry, and we had to spend a lot of time getting food. Sometimes days of thinking and planning and scheming. This type of thinking is not like anything most people have experienced today. This was very much a daily, "failure is not an option" situation. You and a bunch of dudes MUST find something big to kill. If you don't, everybody dies. If you do, everybody parties like crazy. A very big positive if you s
  5. https://loopvids.s3.amazonaws.com/Jan16_Post.mp4 Stage hypnosis is pretty cool. Both to watch and to participate. Once I spoke like a Martian. My job, as a Martian emissary to Earth, was to tell the Earthlings that you'd better obey your Martian overlords. I don't remember much, but when I stood up and lectured the audience in Martian, my friend told me I looked like a professional speaker. When it was my friend's turn, he counted to ten, but somehow forgot the number 3. Stage hypnosis is much different than other hypnosis. Stage hypnosis is a combinatio
  6. https://loopvids.s3.amazonaws.com/Jan14_Post.mp4 The biggest cause of pain in modern life is instinct mis-match. But it's also the source of some fantastic hacks. Food is the easiest to understand. Back in the day, it was hard and dangerous to get food. So, between the feeling of hunger, and the satisfying of hunger was a HUGE and dangerous task. Work, risk, hard effort. Today, there is NOTHING between hunger and the satisfaction of hunger. Which is why there is a very tight correlation between GDP per capita and obesity per capita. Another instinct
  7. https://loopvids.s3.amazonaws.com/Jan08_Post.mp4 What does it mean to be self actualized? Like many other vague terms, this is misunderstood today. Self actualized sounds pretty good. And it's almost always defined in vague but equally good language. And whenever we see something defined in vague but nice sounding language, our minds fill in the blanks. And HOW our minds fill in the blanks is what gets us in trouble. We tend to OVERESTIMATE how good something is going to be. And we tend to UNDERESTIMATE how much effort those good things will take.
  8. https://loopvids.s3.amazonaws.com/Jan06_Post.mp4 We humans have tons of built in instincts. And we have tons of built in learning. We can learn to improve our built in instincts. Or we can learn to create new instincts. Take riding a bike, for example. Nobody is a natural when they first try. That's why they make tricycles and training wheels. But once you got the skills down, you've got them down. Riding a bike is one of the common examples of learning something to the level of unconscious competence. Learn it by heart, and it's second natu
  9. https://loopvids.s3.amazonaws.com/Dec20Post.mp4 Acquired tastes are pretty cool. We tend to think of them as taking time, and not being instantly delicious. For example, once I had a Vietnamese coworker. She brought in some Vietnamese food to work. Our boss came in, took a bite and said: "Hmm, must be an acquired taste." Which is the opposite of saying: "Wow, this is delicious!" Saying it must be an acquired taste is kind of like saying you think it tastes like crap but you get that other people like it. But even that statement is not accurate.
  10. https://loopvids.s3.amazonaws.com/Dec19Post.mp4 The boundary between unconscious competence and conscious competence is a pretty interesting place. This is where your self awareness is most conspicuous. Like when you've JUST about, but not quite, learned something by heart. When we are born, we have a ton of pre-wiring in our brains. Language, basic addition, and plenty of other things. Other things we need to learn as we grow up. In ancient times, this was how to get food, not get eaten, and stay safe in different environments. Humans have figured out h
  11. https://loopvids.s3.amazonaws.com/Oct26Post.mp4 The human imaginations is incredible. We can imagine things far more amazing than the things that actually exist. This can get us into trouble. In ancient times, this hyperactive imagination was a fantastic force of motivation. A bunch of guys were hungry and out looking for food. All the ladies, kids and old people were back at camp, hoping they'd get something. If they DID, they'd be treated like rock stars. And maybe even get some cave-sex from the young cave ladies. So, they were hyper sensitive to
  12. https://loopvids.s3.amazonaws.com/Oct09Post.mp4 Criteria are interesting things. If you're shopping for dinner, even if you don't have a clear idea what you want, you'll kind of know it when you see it. Not much conscious brain is required. On the other hand, if you're buying some spark plugs, you need to be very specific. Very conscious with the "pass fail" criteria. The more involved you and your "choice" will be, the more complex the criteria will be. The more of a mix of conscious and unconscious the criteria will be. What does it mean to be more "in
  13. https://loopvids.s3.amazonaws.com/Oct04Post.mp4 Humans have a big problem with cause and effect. According to scientists, we evolved a "cause effect" linkage system, in our brain, to think much faster. So, we make a lot of causal connections that aren't really true. In the harsh world of hunter-gatherers, being SAFE was more important than RIGHT. Being wrong, but safe was better than being right and dead. So, even thought most of the fast and quick conclusions we made about our environment were wrong MOST of the time, that was OK. This is kind of like a shot
  14. https://loopvids.s3.amazonaws.com/Sept09Post.mp4 A study was done on guys picking up girls in parks. It wasn't quite an academic level study. And it wasn't completely scientific. But since it kind of makes sense, it seems pretty accurate. It was done by a men's magazine, not a scientific magazine or an academic, peer reviewed magazine. The study? They sent a guy, or a group of guys to the park. These guys tried to get ladies phone numbers under three different scenarios. The first one was the dude by himself. The second one was a dude with a do
  15. https://loopvids.s3.amazonaws.com/Sept03Post.mp4 Memorized lines are very, very tempting. These go all the way back to the dawn of time. Of using some kind of magic words to shortcut the regular effort. Tons of diets and get rich quick schemes are based on the idea of circumventing normal efforts. Nowhere is this more prevalent in the area of dating and seduction. Think of the typical male fantasy for sex. To see what this is, structurally, you don't have to look much further than porn. Particularly something like "Bang Bus." Guys are driving down t
  16. https://loopvids.s3.amazonaws.com/Jun26Post.mp4 I love eating peanuts. Particularly in the shell. Ever since I was a kid, I loved eating peanuts in the shell. I'll get a really big bowl, and dump a bunch of unshelled peanuts. Then I'll slowly dig around while I'm watching a movie on TV or something. Theoretically, I could keep the uneaten peanuts on one bowl, and put the shells in another bowl. But part of me likes the treasure hunting aspect. Of digging around in a bowl of mostly peanut shells, hoping to find one that hasn't been eaten. Sometimes I
  17. https://loopvids.s3.amazonaws.com/Jun25Post.mp4 If you've ever made the switch from regular soda to diet soda, it might be a little harsh at first. But it's easy to get used to. And if you drink regular soda by accident, it will taste like pure sugar water. This happens to your taste buds, if you gradually shift to a healthier diet. If you get into the habit of eating healthy, processed food taste really bad. If you re-calibrate your taste buds to the natural sweetness of fruit, eating some ice cream would be too much. If you work out regularly, but can't for
  18. https://loopvids.s3.amazonaws.com/May19Post.mp4 Imagine you were having a big dinner party. You just got a promotion, or she said yes, or any other reason. You were cooking something that you'd never cooked before. Some huge roast pork of some kind. All your dinner guests were excited, ready to taste the delicious smelling pork. You check the recipe, and it says to cook it until it reaches an internal temperature of 170 degrees. You check it, and sure enough, 170 degrees. You pull it out, cut it up, serve to your guests. They eat it. Only twent
  19. https://loopvids.s3.amazonaws.com/May18Post.mp4 The best relationships are mutually beneficial. Even raising kids. Sure, the kid doesn't do much except receive stuff from the parent. Food, safety, love, various forms of teaching, etc. But the benefit to the parent is immeasurable. The child knows absolutely nothing about this ancient arrangement. They just show up, and suck as much experiential data into their brains as possible. But once you have a kid, it changes everything. It changes your outlook, your priorities and the things make you happy
  20. https://loopvids.s3.amazonaws.com/May17Post.mp4 Mother Nature is a genius. The way she calibrated our instincts to survive back in the day was fantastic. Particularly when you consider our brains, our main feature. Brains are extremely expensive. Thinking about difficult subjects is literally hard work. Our brains burn more calories per gram than any other body part. So sitting and studying algebra literally is hard work. And way back in the day, when our brains were tripling in size over a couple million years, a decision had to be made. Our brains
  21. https://loopvids.s3.amazonaws.com/Apr19Post.mp4 All animals, including humans, are driven by instincts. William James, an old school psychologist from 100 years ago said humans have tons of instincts and tons of learning capability. Consider that these CAN be the same. One reason for our "self awareness" is we can use it to learn new instincts. To learn new things to the point of unconscious competence. Normally, when we talk about learning things to this point, we say things like "learning by heart." Or learning them until they become "second nature." T
  22. https://loopvids.s3.amazonaws.com/Apr13Post.mp4 Why do we humans love stories so much? Not just stories, but storytellers? Maybe because they move us through some very powerful and enjoyable emotions. Way back in ancient Greece, they discovered the idea of Catharsis. Of being able to experience non-normal emotions, without having to experience the real and dangerous events that normally produce those emotions. Way back when they first started showing silent movies people were AMAZED. They actually believed that trains were going to come out of the screen.
  23. https://loopvids.s3.amazonaws.com/Apr08Post.mp4 One of the curious things about being human is we think we are logical. We all believe we make logical choices and decisions. And those who disagree with us are NOT logical. They are irrational, emotional, crazy, etc. But according to most psychological and neurological research, our conscious brains are NOT in charge most of the time. This is the basic idea behind Cialdini's research. Cialdini is the guy who came up with the idea of Authority, Social Proof, Scarcity, etc. And through his research, and plen
  24. https://loopvids.s3.amazonaws.com/Aug07Post.mp4 There are two "best case" scenarios or outcomes if you are proficient salesperson. One is to eventually start your own company. This is risky, but it can come with massive rewards. The guys who invented the Go-Pro camera, essentially a camera on a stick, are ultra rich. But in order to make Go-Pro cash, you've got get Go-Pro lucky. You've got to go through a ton of risk, rejection, years of trial and hustle error, all without a guarantee success. So being very good in sales is really just an entry ticket. W
  25. https://loopvids.s3.amazonaws.com/Feb22Post.mp4 There's an economist named Basiat, who is known pretty well in certain economic circles. One is most famous sayings is, "It's not what you see, it's what you don't see." This describes how "reality" really works. Our monkey brains evolved in a very different environment than the one we live in. We could get by, back then, but thinking in very simple, very linear terms. Do X, and you'll get Y. If you get Y, you'll get Z. For most dudes for most of history, there were only three things to think about.
