Alan Watts rules.

Hadn't known about him, but good philosophy for a different perspective. I've thought the same thing about having to undo the trainings of parents and my schools.

I kind of wished that the people wouldn't have asked questions until after though, he was on a roll, but then, maybe the interruptions themselves were wiggles that are meant to be.

did not know there was a buddhist core to this website, and it's top two contributors... interestiiiing.

This is the sweet spot for modern Buddhism, where it's neither the "self help scam perpetrated on rich folks" that Japanese zen buddhism was in the early to mid 20th century (look it up, the Japanese were bamboozling rich businessmen out of their money with pseudo-Buddhist mumbo jumbo decades before Americans got on the bandwagon) but before Leary and Alpert introduced it to the hippies and laid the groundwork for Whole Foods impulse rack "buddhism."

There's not a single thing in here I don't agree with.

....yeah ok
Some of that is about rhetorically turning a phrase, without much mind for validity. I mean I'm glad he hates the normies, but that's a gift for talking at a certain kind of cocktail party, not a gift for philosophy.

It gets clunky because the English language doesn't actually have any vocabulary for the things he's talking about.

That guy
I disagree.
I think there are a few places where he carries his argument forward with a poetic or witty rhetorical move, as if it had to be the case because it was word play.
I don't really want to listen to it again, though, so I'll just declare myself the winner.

Typical.

That Guy, there IS some stuff like that near the end when he's responding to questions, you're right.
