This Is How Elon Musk Can Learn and Master Anything Quickly
First principles thinking

""It is important to view knowledge as sort of a semantic tree — make sure you understand the fundamental principles, i.e. the trunk and big branches, before you get into the leaves/details or there is nothing for them to hang onto.""

"What he describes here is called "first principles thinking." "I think it's important to reason from first principles rather than by analogy," Musk said in an interview. "The normal way we conduct our lives is we reason by analogy. [...] we are doing this because it's like something else that was done, or it is like what other people are doing. [With first principles] you boil things down to the most fundamental truths ... and then reason up from there."

More than 2,300 years ago, Aristotle mirrored this same mode of thinking. The philosopher said that the first principle is the "first basis from which a thing is known.""

Panpsychism: The idea that everything from spoons to stones are conscious is gaining academic credibility — Quartz
"Panpsychism doesn’t necessarily imply that every inanimate object is conscious. “Panpsychists usually don’t take tables and other artifacts to be conscious as a whole,” writes Hedda Hassel Mørch, a philosophy researcher at New York University’s Center for Mind, Brain, and Consciousness, in an email. “Rather, the table could be understood as a collection of particles that each have their own very simple form of consciousness.”"

Movement Culture
"I am not impressed with Wim Hof's method and definitely not with Kotler who is somewhat of a repackager. Wim Hof as a practitioner - very impressive. Wim Hof's method on the other hand = devoid of detail, progression, logic, coherent process, quality. It is confused, contradictory and scattered. His book is especially terrible. His idea is an old one and one that mankind has been aware of since the age of time, (one has a potential for full control over anything in one's chemistry, neurology, system) but putting it into practice takes not only practice as is often presented but specific talents and predisposition for that direction, in order to circumvent a host of filters, masking and blockages installed on those functions from the simple reason - to PROTECT YOU and enable you to take on HIGHER FUNCTIONS. As for the cold resistance specifically - I've been aware of Tummo and the Tibetan methods for over a decade. It is nothing new. It is energy consuming but doable and definitely"

(5) Movement Culture
I wont put 'tutorials' and 'instructionals' for certain advanced protocols, methods, exercises and movements that contain inherent danger to them and a need of individualization tailoring. Many 'free loaders' and other 'YouTube Students' who never take their practice seriously enough to seek proper and in person instruction will complain, bitch and moan. Haters will hate. And I could care less about people who don't care to respect me, my beliefs and my ways. When I was fresh out of the military and broke, I saved 6 months and traveled abroad to the US to study with Charles Poliquin. I always invested into my education - even when it was ALL the money I had in the pocket. I went to the best and studied in person from the source. Not second hand and not picking up some free material online while confusing simple DATA for WISDOM and KNOWLEDGE. It makes me immune to the 'can't afford this or that advice'. To this day I have never met anyone who can match me on yearly expenses.."

Alan Watts - How Could This Happen To Me [Must Listen] - YouTube
"Alan Watts is one of the most widely read philosophers of the 20th century. In addition to his 28 books, Alan Watts delivered hundreds of public lectures and seminars the recordings of which have been preserved in the archives of the Electronic University. Alan's eldest son Mark Watts has reviewed and cataloged these talks to prepare them for public broadcast. In 2005 Amber Star of Zencast.org created Alan Watts podcast to help disseminate these lectures to a new iPod listening generation . Today the Electronic University and Zencast.org are pleased to present the highlights of the spoken works of Alan Watts."

The "common movement folks"... : movementculture
The common 'Movement' folks: You don't move. You train. You don't strengthen. You isolate and tone. You don't play. You go through your session. You don't eat food. You ingest calories. You don't invert, quadrupedal, fight, climb, etc. You curl, extend and flex. You don't research your body. You research articles on someone else body first and foremost. You don't own your body. You own apparel. You don't have a practice. You have a program of wod's. You don't enjoy the floor, a wall, a patch of grass, a stick, a rope. You enjoy a vibration plate, a stair-master, a pec-deck. You don't have movement patterns. You have only muscles. You don't have resiliency. You have fragility in face of the unknown. You don't have weaknesses you admit to. You have delusions. You don't Move. You barely move. All you need is Move, Ido. http://www.idoportal.com

Natural Training
I have been reading some bizarre (although entertaining) statements about the spine via the good old "grapevine" we call Facebook. I am always amazed how much strength the "straight spine is a strong spine" mantra still has. If we are to make any sense of this "debate", we need to attempt to remove as much subjectivity from the discussion as possible...this means take a step back and get a broader perspective from an evolutionary standpoint. In other words, "loads, loading, high impact, etc..." are secondary variables because they are DERIVED from evolutionary ........... " If the spine needs to be "neutral" or fixed during movement...why is it engineered with an inordinate amount of articular displacement and potential?"

Two Ways To Think About Nothing : Krulwich Wonders... : NPR
"We are surrounded by Nothing. Everywhere we go, we have no idea what we're not seeing. We don't know what gravitational fields look like, what dark matter looks like, what quantum foam looks like, what de Kooning's drawing looked like, but what the scientists and the artists are telling us, in their very different ways, is that if we lean in, and pay very close attention, sometimes what looks like Nothing is the best place to find the most interesting...somethings."

Amazon.com: Shop Class as Soulcraft: An Inquiry Into the Value of Work (9781594202230): Matthew B. Crawford: Books
Starred Review. Philosopher and motorcycle repair-shop owner Crawford extols the value of making and fixing things in this masterful paean to what he calls manual competence, the ability to work with oneÖs hands. According to the author, our alienation from how our possessions are made and how they work takes many forms: the decline of shop class, the design of goods whose workings cannot be accessed by users (such as recent Mercedes models built without oil dipsticks) and the general disdain with which we regard the trades in our emerging information economy. Unlike todayÖs knowledge worker, whose work is often so abstract that standards of excellence cannot exist in many fields (consider corporate executives awarded bonuses as their companies sink into bankruptcy), the person who works with his or her hands submits to standards inherent in the work itself: the lights either turn on or they donÖt, the toilet flushes or it doesnÖt, the motorcycle roars or sputters.

America's freedom and prosperity derive from the combination of the idea of human liberty in America's Declaration of Independence with the idea of economic freedom in Adam Smith's Wealth of Nations. Friedman explains how markets and voluntary exchange organize activity and enable people to improve their lives. He also explains the price system. Friedman visits Hong Kong, U.S. and Scotland.

Welcome to 50 Classics by Tom Butler-Bowdon
Covers PsychoCybernetics -- and Meditations by Marus Aurelius: excerpt:
All things fade into the storied past, and in a little while are shrouded in oblivion. Even to men whose lives were a blaze of glory this comes to pass; as to the rest, the breath is hardly out of them before, in Homer's words, they are 'lost to sight alike and hearsay'...To what, then, must we aspire? This, and this alone: the just thought, the unselfish act, the tongue that utters no falsehood, the temper that greets each passing event as something predestined, expected, and emanating from the One source and origin.

Ask these powerful five questions: What power have you got? Where did you get it from? In whose interests do you exercise it? To whom are you accountable? How can we get rid of you?
Only democracy gives us that right -- that is why no one with power likes democracy. And that is why every generation must struggle to win it and keep it, including you and me here and now.
