Doc Watson - I'll Fly Away - Final Performance [youtube.com]
brentan comments on Dec 3, 2019:
Wow! The last time I saw him he looked 40 years younger!
why the name change?
brentan comments on Dec 3, 2019:
The agnostic name justifies my being here so I'm obviously happy with it.
Letter From America I am guessing this is about the Highland Clearances.

That's a beautiful song enhanced by the accents. Here's a couple more you might enjoy, Mary Black and Duke Special (Peter Wilson): https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=oRdDnpkR3AQ https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6dpUqeOC1Hw

We ARE ALL PRODUCTS OF OUR EXPERIENCE as we get older our experience differs from our fellow ...
brentan comments on Dec 3, 2019:
I'm reading Kant at the moment and he's a big believer that's it's our experiences plus what we make of them. He says we all have the same faculties of mind to process our experiences so I think that would mean that if we all had the same experiences, we would all deal with them the same way. That can't be true. We seem to have different qualities of intellect. The only way I know an intellect can be made more efficient is education. John Vervaeke on YT discusses in detail the elements of rational thinking which I'll put here in his formula for the heck of it: rationality = intelligence + psychotechnologies + active open mindedness Psychotechnologies just means facilities we use such as language
And on a similar theme, a group that is a composed/improvised hybrid and a mix of bluegrass, jazz ...

I started watching YouTube regarding Jehovah’s Witnesses.
brentan comments on Dec 2, 2019:
I can relate. I used to do a lot of ex-JW stuff but it was a neverending bout of sadness, anger and bitterness. I only watch KimMikey nowadays on YT because they are a likeable, happy couple who know all the latest nonsense from the Watchtower.

Do democracies need heroes?
brentan comments on Dec 2, 2019:
There's a saying that goes something like '20% of people are negative about everything, 20% positive and 60% open to suggestion'. I think charismatic leaders carry the day because they get the majority enthused enough to do something different. My favourite hero of this type is Jordan Peterson because he motivates people to clean up their own act first, then extend that sense of responsibility out to the world they live in to help change it for the better.
A New Discovery About Prehistoric Rock Art Suggests Ancient People Had Technology We Are Only Now ...
brentan comments on Dec 2, 2019:
It makes me wonder was the IQ spread across human populations always much the same while the contexts of their worlds they lived in changed over time.
"Freedom of knowledge" is a thought I had to discuss.
brentan comments on Dec 2, 2019:
I think the extreme view is the Calvinist notion that free will is impossible due to our fallen nature. In this case, it seems to be a matter of the fallen intellect. If Kant is correct, our mental faculties create knowledge from sense perceptions. In computers, raw data is processed to become knowledge. My guess is that access to knowledge - or to put it another way - the freedom to gain knowledge, is bound by the processing power of our intellect.
The Psychology of Awakening .
brentan comments on Dec 2, 2019:
It seems that if we want to lose our sense of self, we need to find out who we are first. I loved the idea of spiritual by-passing. I've been watching something very similar to the topic of the book in terms of Western psychology and Eastern teaching in John Vervaeke's Awakening From The Meaning Crisis on YouTube.

Maybe it's just as well the Devil didn't tempt him with a woman when he in the desert. I think propriety demanded that the Gospel writers not go there.

Do you feel advanced enough?
brentan comments on Dec 1, 2019:
That looks like my cup of tea. I've been watching John Vervaeke's Awakening From The Meaning Crisis lectures on YT and it's focus is also on how to think properly.

I'm terrible with names. Recently, I kept getting a woman's name wrong and felt stupid and embarrassed about it. Plus, people can get testy about it. This woman, Yvonne, was very nice about it.
