This one might be a bit controverial (somewhat hippyish topic, ie. quantum consciousness) but it's stated much more crisply, clearly, and with more professional reference than I think I've seen to date.

Collapse talk with Adam Robbert, Jesse Estrin , and Matt Segall (0ThouArtThat0). It sounds guardedly optimistic but I'd at least agree with them on this - capitalism realism seems like a positioning for permanent acceptance of a temporary problem from the standpoint that the ground the current sort of global neoliberalism is too heavy for the substrate supporting it.

I would have probably gotten in trouble if I made a thread of it's own for this, nevertheless - very interesting. Yes, microdosing, just a warning for people with red-green color-blindness, tracers.

A New Wind Of Dance MosT All Will Notice; A New Song of Wind Rarely Will Anyone See.
In Six Years At 59, i Public Dance Wind 11,888 Miles; Articulate Wind 7.2 Million Written Words of Free Poetry/Bible Song.
When i Am Three i See/Create Wind, SpeaKinG No Words; Short Cut See/Create Wind; Thousand Plus Cuts Articulate Wind.
Some Folks Are Afraid Of DarK/Cynical oF LiGHT; iT iS Often Those Who Are Not, Who See/Create More Wind;
'Star of David' Brings Life Human’s God too;
Two Triangles Intersecting
Up And Down Will Do; Sure,
Six Pointed Walmart Star Too;
God Is Not Only A PeN iS GoD Is A She SheD
Or A Bottom And Top Of A HeART;
A Religion For All Or A Religion Of All Will 'You'
Discern Which One Is More Comprehensive As 'God';
Afraid oF Or Seeing/Creating Unknown Guess Which Way Is More Fun.

i Enjoy New Stuff; Not Everyone Does; That Pretty Much Captures
the Human Condition In A Nut Shell And Outside of A Cave True.

Smiles, i Enjoyed 'the Video'; Folks Were Creating New Terms; Articulating more of 'the Wind'
They See in and as Natural Existence; Somewhere Around 99 Percent of the Population and More Will Not.

Not Everyone Is Born, Bred, AND Gardened to See and Create More Wind; And Again Those Who Are And Do Have
So much
More
Fun
As Nomads
ThiS Way than
Cave Dwellers Still Horrified
of Dark and Cynical of What Lights Outside of 'Plato's Cave' Will Come To Be And Do as 'US'.

SMiles my Friend You are A Gardener; You are Interesting in Creating and Seeing More Wind;
That is About as Rare on this Internet Site in this Forum as a Flower in a Desert; Just coming
By to let You Know, i for one Appreciate what You Share and Give; HA! YaH HeH HuH and overall i See and
Create Way too much
Wind to be
Welcome
Here; surely
UnderStandAble OverAll too.
Hehe; at Least for those Who See and Create more Wind..:)

The Dark Doesn't Scare me; i Want to Experience the 'Horror' oF it again;
but True This Horror is Not Fear at All; This is the Adventure of Seeing
More Wind Never Cynical oF LiGHT
For that is what
The Dark
BRinGS Best More oF LiGHT;
Seeing/Creating More Wind.
And True Peaks and Plateaus Flow
More Not Unlike A ReSounding Key of E
at the End of a "The Beatle's", "Sgt. Pepper's Lonely HeARTS Club Band' 'Day in a
Life" Eternally NoW WHeRE We Become the Note the Song the Orchestra Symphony ONE;
True, Led Zeppelin's "Kashmir" Will "Take 'US' THere"; A Mix in Flow of Pakistan and India True too...
MaGiC
MuSiC
Plays Forever Soul NoW oN More Wind in/as Light 'US';
Sure, as the Beatles Dance Sing; "Will Love to Turn 'Them' On", too;
but THeRe are Many Days in a Life WHeRe i Live at Least, Where only a Dance Will Be Seen.
Let's Face it Not Everyone Will Do a Mix of Pee Wee Herman/Forrest Gump/the Dude off the
Big Lewbowski/ And The Story of Jesus on 'Saturday'/Thursday 'Night Fever' too even Bringing
that Myth Alive For Real at least by the Book and More hehe;
For Real With No Myths;
Not Likely even
John Travolta
or The River Dance
Lord Will be Able to Do me at almost 60 hehe;
It's true 'Jesus' Could have done more if he avoided
Getting Nailed to a Cross at 33 too... for Real of Course With no Myths.

John Lennon
Made a Huge
Mistake and so
Many Others True too;
The Secret is Being too Big With too many Colors to See;
hehe, in Broad Day Light, i Dance And Sing it All For Real Like a Real Thief, hAha;
Smiles, People have been doing it this way to Survive for Centuries on End; but Now Herstories are mine too...;)

A Life of Brevity Shallow,
Inherently Twitter Short;
Rarely Deep to See Wind;
And True An Endless Spectrum
of the 'Tween of This A Christmas Tree
Farm Each of Us A Tree From Black to Brown
to Green to Gold in Ever Changing Colors of Soul;
Separate Water Drops

And Martial Arts on Solid Ground Escaping Clouds
Of Anxiety; Balancing Higher and Higher in Beyond Rainbow Colors
oF LiGHT
As My
Tree continues
to Expand in Colors
Within; iNside, ouTside; Above
So Below and All Around Even More...
Smiles; my Friend, it's one thing to Talk About
Putting it in Concrete Terms; quite a different Experience
to Actually Do it in Dance And Song Eternally now already
Arriving; only A place to Go Higher And Higher With Additional Colors
Coming As Essence before Form attempts to Escape the Free of Just Being more....
Haha;
Rationality
Grounds Heaven; Yang
stops Yin From Flying Higher;
Go Figure; Yes, Science Finally
shows this as the Kind of Mechanical
Cognition that the players in the Video You
Shared to Explain A Flow Actually Takes Us
Away from the Social Empathic Artistic Right Brain
Metaphor of Real Spirituality of Being 'More' than Just
A Left
Brain
Think
Tank of Concrete;
Mental Masturbation is
Fun; but True, Flying Free
is An Excellent Adventure that
Never Stutters or Spurts in Words without a Home;
A Spiraling Flow IS A Way of Nature; it's Every WHere to
See for those Who See it; it's EVery WHere to Be to Master All in All
for folks
who

i Am it..
Other wise;
Life is Like a
Huge Dam; a Constipation of Soul;
Yet Remembered, Just to Spiral And Flow...
If We Cannot Find it on a Beach, Under a Tree;
Sure, in a Forest; or on a Mountain Top, or even
in A Cave With No Cultural Clothes; An Essence of
God is not even Real as Nature Naked Dancing;
Meh; An Experience of this hasn't changed
As Always Changing;
but the
Words
for it
are almost totally
Still Lost Now from An
Essence of Free Life Spiraling,
Moving, Connecting; and Surely
Co-Creating for Us Social Animals True.
Yeah; i've written 7.2 MiLLioN Words That
Dance This Way too; Forms of what is Left
are Just Fumes; A Form of the Essence of Heaven i experience
NoW iN all the Dance of Fingers as i continue to Color Higher and Higher;
Hehe; true
HiStory

not often
Do Folks See
a Seagull Like Jonathan
Livingston unless they Fly
Breast to Feather Higher Coloring More...
True though; A Dance A Flow is Easier to see than only Words;
Mirror Neurons; and the Fact that We Communicate more Non-Verbally, Overall;
Of course
not everyone
has the Capacity
or a Practice to See 'Wind'.
The Sacred is a Gratitude for a
Present of Now; For Some Folks it is
Eternal and Ever Expanding Thanks, Now;
for Other Folks it might be a Concrete Man on a Cross;
how Sad for 'God' to Be Reduced that way; Worshipping
a Form lost from Ever Evolving God Within; God is only
As Big As We See More Colors of Wind; Best 'Thing' oF ALL...
God is Free;
So Are We;
unless
We Agree
to Clothe our Soul
And Hide From 'More'...
And to Be Concretely Clear;
For Some Folks, the Only Potential
That 'Some Folks' Will have any Potential
to understand this; is to watch the Concrete
Way it is Described in these Videos; and finally
escape the Concrete and Fly Free i Am... Sadly,
some Folks Are Lost From Understanding it either way;
a Purgatory that does not seem fair;
but i surely would keep trying
if i was 'them' as i
did before; and
Finally getting through
'Pearly Gates' of A 'Right Brain
Metaphor' of Flying Spirit Free
Coloring Soul Ever more Eternally
Now Alive instead of 'Practically Dead' Living Dead;
A Zombie Apocalypse continues to Rise as Fall from Life as Dead;
Why? It's Elementary; We are What We Feed our Souls; Clothes of Cultural
Mechanical Cognition
PriSon DarK; And Or
Naked Dancing LiGHT
Singing Spiraling Free;
Works for me at Least for
Real as Fully Evidenced True; too.
Anyway the Coolest/Most Luke Hot Thing oF all is
THeRE Ain't nothing to be Upset About IN Heaven Flow Now;
Quite the Opposite; Nirvana, Bliss Colors Even More oF LiGHT Out of DarK
Never
Ending
Always
Beginning
Start Eternally Now;
Eternal Life from First
Breath Now to Last BLinK of Eternal Now;
It's A Great Enough Gift That Makes Dying
Well Worth it; and Living Again Now Never Dying;
So Sacred; So Holy; So Full of Meaning And Purpose
Mastering All in All Eternally Now as Simply Thanks Now For Living All.
