Reply Sonia Munoz says: June 22, 2019 at 3:13 pm Was anyone else curious of what the Hindu deity, Keli, looked like; and subsequently fell through the rabbit hole or rather a plethora of online resources and images? I spent loads of time and yet feel I barely scraped the surface of Hinduism. Reply JustPast12 says: June 22, 2019 at 3:13 pm Which year is his best personality course? Reply Off Handed says: June 22, 2019 at 3:13 pm Reading Mircea Eliade's 'A History of Religious Ideas'… Only on page 39 and I'm running out of sticky notes 🙂 Having difficulty understanding the myth of Hainuwele from Ceram, New Guinea. The thought of a murdered semi-divine maiden springing forth as yet unknown edible foodstuffs seems a bit simple given the brilliance of the discovery of cultivation by these people. It seems that the translation (and the ultimate game of 'telephone' of oral traditions) may have missed something important. It would seem that murder was confused with a voluntary sacrifice of oneself for the benefit of the tribe. The sacrifice is not ones life in a suicidal sense but rather the life's work of someone to provide something new and useful for the people. This sacrifice of time and effort would fit better than the assumption that a murder took place due to the outrage of others at the discovery that food grew from crap… This would NO DOUBT be obvious to anyone living at the time. People gotta go somewhere and the obvious correlation to human and animal feces to punctuated plant growth must have been known. Considering that my interpretation would allow the stated account for the division of labor between cultivator (women) and hunter/Sheppard/protector (men), the discovery of the need of chronological data for farming and only add the more important need to sacrifice time and labor to result in a hopeful harvest later, I can only surmise that the idea of murder is insufficient to properly explain the impetus for their rational to support the mode of being that results in creative cultivation, division of labor and simultaneously accounts for the sacred nature of the feminine. That was the longest sentence I have ever written in my life…. sorry 🙂 Reply Neva K says: June 22, 2019 at 3:13 pm The opposite of love is not hate. It can't be. The opposite is indifference. So A and not A holds. Reply Daniel Stoica says: June 22, 2019 at 3:13 pm Jordan, some hints on being a proper scientist – read and better understand Eliade's work and also Eco with his Semiotics! You could start with the obvious – https://youtu.be/guhEhH9F_q4 Reply xTheBlueNitex says: June 22, 2019 at 3:13 pm Can anyone tell me the name of the movie? Sounded like Crum or crumb…but I can't find the video! Can anyone help? Reply HelloThere says: June 22, 2019 at 3:13 pm I grew up without my dad being around, although I was fortunate enough to have strong male role models in my uncles and my grandfather. Now in my 40s, I have to say that JBP is the mentor I've been searching for my whole life. It's taken me a while to to fully trust him and get past the alt-right stigma, I have searched and searched and there literally is ZERO evidence that he holds extremist political views Reply Dallas Hill says: June 22, 2019 at 3:13 pm We love you Jordan! Reply benoit8850 says: June 22, 2019 at 3:13 pm Just love all your videos dr.P.So increadibly full of knowledge and wisdom. Wish I had your clarity and precision in verbalizing concepts. Long life to you. Reply YedKom says: June 22, 2019 at 3:13 pm can someone please provide a link to the movie that professor Peterson cited ? Reply nilesh kumar says: June 22, 2019 at 3:13 pm Here Kali is symbolism of uncontrolled destruction potential of universe and the imagery points to the futility of humans in a scenario where if they built such destructive potentials ( depicted as Kali) they won't be able to control it (as Shiva himself has to come to stop Kali who ignores him and stomps over him) And the tongue of the Kali is the symbol of regret as Kali is a form of parvati, the consort of Shiva himself Reply Funkyboodah says: June 22, 2019 at 3:13 pm [28:30] On Jung Reply C CC says: June 22, 2019 at 3:13 pm Live by the spirit not the flesh.

Reply gabs says: June 22, 2019 at 3:13 pm its ironic he says university's purpose is to turn the youth into people that aren't marionettes, and its exactly what's happening now with the left indoctrinating and making them sissies. Reply Smikket Abito says: June 22, 2019 at 3:13 pm Wow… so my own picture of what a mother or father are is ultimately a primate's attempt at piecing together roles that have been born out of nature and are far more complex then I could ever hope to imagine. Reply S/LT. says: June 22, 2019 at 3:13 pm What this guy is doing is some sort of a work of art to meI cannot wrap my head around this amazing lecture seriesThis is so much fun Reply NolanEP says: June 22, 2019 at 3:13 pm You're explaining a sophisticated belief that most people are not contemplating. You know as well as I do that the general Christian population, probably 97% of the believers are not contemplating any such ideas, because they haven't been taught that way and mostly because they're not thinking that deeply or on that level, not too mention the intelligence it would take to get there psychologically and intellectually. Don't pretend people think that much or that they're even able to. I know you're smarter than that.

Peterson binge night. Attention starting to fail. You really know how to keep it alive, though, professor. Reply Sam Collett says: June 22, 2019 at 3:13 pm I laid out this dilemma a couple weeks ago and I want to reformulate it, because you might make some use of it. Okay, here it is: the preservation of meaning in, for example, stories, has two effects: 1) it creates the possibility that an individual will encounter that text and become more enlightened and a better person as a result, and 2) it reduces the immediate need of individuals everywhere to even concern themselves with meaning because anyone who might rely on that person for instructive wisdom and virtue can instead be edified by the preservations. The dilemma is that it's not clear whether the 1st effect renders the 2nd desirable or even acceptable. The dilemma is that the goal of preserving meaning actually sabotages the necessity to wrestle with it.

Reply Sebastian Hansen says: June 22, 2019 at 3:13 pm Jordan you are a genius. Thank you for this vast information of knowledge. Can already sense my perception of my self and others is expanding thanks to you. Reply Julien Debache says: June 22, 2019 at 3:13 pm Can we interpret the death and rebirth of the mind to acquire knowledge as an improved or at least analogous version of how genetics work ? Instead of requiring phsyical reproduction to allow the genes to proliferate, the mind can simply kill itself and live again with other "genes", that is other ideas / values / morals / personality ? Isn't that somehow what Nietzsche was taling about when he described the transformations from camel to lion to child ? The camel is the one rigidly sticking to some patter of ideas carrying it without asking questions, the lion being the one who wrecks everything in defiance and the child as the one who can the most easily change die and be born again anew ?
