Basically, he is selling digital content. For example, $35 gets you a list of books. Not the books; just the list.

I wouldn't watch that video either. I especially wouldn't pay to watch it.

I watched the first minute and twelve seconds. He seems to be conflating "there is no such thing as the brain" with "what the brain perceives does not match reality". I expect the rest is more sleight of tongue in an attempt to seem daring or edgy or something. I can't be arsed to watch more to see if he has a valid point or anything. The shape of his face annoyed me.

Apparently he has arrived at his calling in life after having read more than 250 self-help books over the past 10 years, has figured it all out, and is willing to share his epiphanies with everyone for a reasonable price. Caveat emptor.

Pyrrho: I dunno. I see a lot of people seemingly beyond themselves in happiness who gave up thinking for themselves.....right from the start.

I'm thinking.......there are many ways of defining/appreciating "success." Thinking for yourself is one of the most difficult......... Self = ego. A high hurdle that ego.

Its well understood Freud "suffered" from a consistent bias in his subjects: they all had emotional problems they went to him for help with. Not the best model for what goes on with the greater majority of people who do not have neuroses, psychoses and so forth.

But no Fraud. One of the Three Great Pillars of Western Modern Thought (with Einstein the Forth). Not some guy trying to sell a book.

Just because he wasn't trying to sell a book like Deepak doesn't mean he was right. Maybe he was expressing what he thought was true, but maybe he was wrong. I'm skeptical of his ideas too
