Regardless of where you live, societies are feeling the threat against certain freedoms and are fighting back. Humans innately don’t want to be oppressed or censored by larger, more powerful and dominant groups. But exactly how do you define your freedom? Is your freedom tied to your “rights'' or is your freedom independent of that? Sebastian Junger, best selling author, Afghanistan war correspondent and more has authored a new book, Freedom, that will leave you shocked, perplexed and challenged in many ways. In this conversation, he and Tom take a deep dive into freedom, what it means for different societies, how smaller groups are able to give larger groups and armies hell, and are willing to risk their lives for their freedom. Sebastian also shares his 400 mile experience walking through America with a group of friends and reflects on different feelings of freedom. His more recent near death experience will shock you and give you yet another perspective of freedom worth fighting for Order Sebastian Junger’s new book, Freedom: <a href= "https://amzn.to/3rr8tP1">https://amzn.to/3rr8tP1</a> SHOW NOTES: 0:00 | Introduction 1:06 | What is Freedom? 2:49 | Defend Your Freedom 6:04 | Balancing Opposing Sides 8:12 | Root of the Word Freedom 10:51 | 10,000 miles for Defense 15:40 | Society Safe in Numbers 20:19 | Value of Physical Strength 25:12 | Small Fighter Advantage 31:14 | Culture of Honor 41:07 | Agriculture Control 48:04 | Autonomy vs Comfort 53:12 | Social Primate PTSD 58:31 | Importance of Physical Contact 1:03:45 | A Weird 400 Mile Trip 1:06:39 | Seeking Out Challenges 1:08:54 | Freedom Along Gender Lines 1:17:00 | Lessons Raising Girls 1:21:31 | Near Death Experience 1:27:32 | Giving Meaning to Death 1:29:04 | Discussing His Next Book 1:32:34 | Relationship to Fear   QUOTES: “it means that you are not unfairly controlled by a greater power. That you’re self defining, within the limits, of course of the laws that bind all of us.” [1:25]   “That's the eternal human sort of balancing act is to defend themselves but then not wind up being oppressed by their own leaders.” [4:43]   “It's very clear that armed aggression is very adaptive, that it helps the aggressive group survive and thrive.” [8:49]   “The idea of freedom really only refers to the people within your own community.” [9:25]   “Going into a foreign country to defend oneself, puts the military in the whole society on more precarious moral grounds.” [12:29]   “first thing you need to do in order to feel safe is to be part of a group that has a kind of common agreement to defend itself against any threat” [16:17]   “The really interesting thing about humans is that a smaller fighter, or a smaller group, is capable of defeating a larger fighter or a larger group that size and strength are not the ultimate predictor of victory in combat.” [23:21]   “The small guy in the ring does not have to win, they just have to keep not losing long enough for this for the larger entity to run out of resources.” [26:12]   “We have an instinct for autonomy, we also have an instinct for, you know, not being uncomfortable and being safe and and having our ease” [49:30]   “In an affluent society, individuals need others less to survive. And so they're able to live more and more individualistic lives that are more focused on their own experience, and less focused on the experience of others.” [54:20]   “As wealth goes up in a society, broadly, the rates of depression and suicide tend to go up and in poorer societies despite the stresses of poverty, rates of depression and suicide tend to go down.” [54:48]   “Where evolution comes from, is testing new things, and evolving physically and psychologically to adapt to them.” [1:07:42]   “Leadership has to be completely selfless, like you need leaders who will die for you. Anything less than that is not a leader. They're an opportunist.” [1:12:59]   “The meaning that we give to life and the meaning that we give to death. It doesn't say anything really about the nature of existence, it says something about how we, as humans, create a place for ourselves in the world on this crazy planet we live on.” [1:28:00]   “Some feelings that you get in touch with, prevent you from doing something that needs to be done. Like that emotional denial is absolutely crucial when you're doing something that is scary or horrifying.” [1:34:04]   Follow Sebastian Junger: Website: [http://www.sebastianjunger.com/] (http://www.sebastianjunger.com/) Twitter: <a href= "https://twitter.com/sebastianjunger">https://twitter.com/sebastianjunger</a> Facebook: <a href= "https://www.facebook.com/sebastianjunger">https://www.facebook.com/sebastianjunger</a> Instagram: https://www.instagram.com/sebastianjungerofficial/ ...

Though our experiences are all uniquely different, pain and frustration from whatever reason usually leaves you scared, angry, and sometimes bitter. When Lewis Howes came face to face with his anger and rage, he got to work on understanding himself, his triggers and how he could improve everyday. After years of practice, he is sharing with you what doing the inner work involves and how feedback has become a critical part of his success. From sharing his 2 secret skills for success to exposing how his healing came along side a few f*ck you letters, this episode is packed with solid advice and exploration of what it takes to find great coaches and be great!   Check Out Lewis Howes First Interview on Impact Theory: <a href= "https://youtu.be/YZ9kfXw9H54">https://youtu.be/YZ9kfXw9H54</a>  If you want more, here’s Lewis Howes’ Top 3 Tips for Impact: <a href= "https://youtu.be/SEkwkVGaMvk">https://youtu.be/SEkwkVGaMvk</a>    SHOW NOTES: 0:00 | Introduction to Lewis Howes 1:22 | Most Important Skill, Vision 2:45 | Developing Vision 5:48 | What People Are Missing 7:50 | Preparing for Something Greater 9:45 | Perfect Storm for a Break Down 13:27 | Healing from the Shame 14:40 | F*ck You Letters & Darkness 17:28 | Prepared and Facing the Pain 20:44 | Need for Mind, Body, & Emotions 28:07 | Relationship Lessons 32:22 | Delaying Sexual Connection 35:29 | Connection Over Values First? 38:16 | Having Kids & Being Authentic 40:25 | Power of Therapy & Triggers 43:13 | Find Great Coaches & Feedback 44:27 | Practice of Taking Feedback 47:06 | Withstanding Physical Pain 48:02 | Finding Good Coaches 51:17 | Stacking Blind Spots 54:28 | Way of Language Learning 57:02 | Earn Your Respect 59:37 | Defining Greatness   QUOTES: “You've never mastered really anything, you can be great at something but there's always another level in sports to be better.” [3:53]   “We underestimate what people might be going through inside, even if they look like they have it all figured out on the outside.” [12:06]   “If you don't know how to manage the beast inside, you could really be struggling.” [12:20]   “I only let myself lean into the darkness until I know that now it's in danger of being corrosive.” Tom Bilyeu [15:05]   “To just know, if someone wanted to do something, I would be able to take care of myself, that gives me inner peace, that eliminates anxiety” [18:16]   “The discipline of doing something painful every day, I think, is one of the most important disciplines that any human being can have. Whatever that pain looks like for you, I believe we must lean into the pain every day.” [18:36]   “It's not enough to do the work in the past. It's a continual process in the present. That makes me feel at peace every day.” [24:19]   “Love is not enough for a long term committed, healthy relationship to fully work.” [29:28]   “I'm willing to grow and improve but I'm not going to just do something to create peace.” [39:51]   “The ability to have a beginner's mind, find and surround myself by great coaches, and be unapologetic in asking for feedback. Feedback has been a huge indicator of my success.” [43:55]   “Just because someone's giving you feedback doesn't mean it's true about you. So, don't take it personally. And see where is the truth in there, and how can you apply it” [45:16]   Follow Lewis Howes: Website: <a href= "https://lewishowes.com/">https://lewishowes.com/</a>  YouTube: <a href= "https://www.youtube.com/c/lewishowes/about">https://www.youtube.com/c/lewishowes/about</a>  Twitter: <a href= "https://twitter.com/LewisHowes">https://twitter.com/LewisHowes</a>  Instagram: <a href= "https://www.instagram.com/lewishowes/">https://www.instagram.com/lewishowes/</a> ...

Goals are important and should always be considered when choosing what is best for you. This is not advice for anyone, just a look at how I’ve applied the plethora of expert advice I’ve received over the past few years. This episode is Health Theory In Action with my own routine:   Key Points to My Routine: 1. Exercise and Meditation are a must. 2. Diet is critical for health. I keep it simple with meat, eggs, and veggies. 3. Learn what works best for your body and act in accordance.   SHOW NOTES: Morning Routine | Why the order you prioritize in the morning matters [0:40] Workout Routine | Tom chooses push, pull, legs and abs for a weight lifting routine [2:01] Injuries | Tom shares how he is prone to low back pain and safely exercises his back [2:24] Back Pain | Tom reveals 2 reasons for low back pain, diet and not deadlifting [3:28] Deadlift | Tom shares how and why he deadlifts 5 days a week [4:54] Pull Day Routine | Why Tom opts for a 4 to 1 back to biceps ratio and it works for him [5:56] Push Day Routine | Working on chest, triceps, and shoulders [6:44] Meditation Routine | Tom shares his daily meditation practice he calls, Just Breathe [8:37] 4 Part Cycle | Tom explains the 4 part cycle breathing he uses from Mark Divine [11:06] Diet Routine | Tom breaks down your diet’s impact on emotions and cognitive function [13:46] Fasting Routine | Tom reveals why intermittent fasting is a must for him 7 days a week [17:13] Food Choices | Tom shares what his actually diet consists of: meat, eggs, vegetables [18:56] Fruit Caution | Tom explains why fruit is a “cheat” snack on the weekends only [23:00] Drinking Routine| Why Tom doesn’t drink after 2 PM and his rules for caffeine intake [24:21]   QUOTES: “If you haven't at least explored that getting strong is the answer to your pain, that working out even though it seems like the riskiest thing you can do is actually the thing that's going to solve your problem, then you haven't even begun to explore potential remedies.” [3:02]   “The workout that you do, even if it's a little wonky, is better than the perfect workout that you don't do.” [8:27]   “Literally at a cellular level you are made of the things that you consume. So every cell in your body is from something that you ate” [14:31]   “I have a gut instinct, that anxiety is probably 90% your diet, and then 10%, what you're thinking about” [16:21]   ... Read more

Falling victim and feeling helpless is not about being weak or strong, but it is about self-awareness and making a mental shift to see what is possible. Stepping back and asking yourself, what is in your control and deciding how you want to respond is critical. Viktor Frankl says in his book, Man’s Search for Meaning, “Between stimulus and response there is a space. In that space is our power to choose our response. In our response lies our growth and our freedom.” Danny Trejo, an actor and  Hollywood Icon, joins me today to discuss a few of the stories from his new memoir, Trejo. Hearing these stories should remind you that it never matters where you are or how you start in life, it only matters how you decide to respond. Yes it’s hard, yes all excuses and reasons you have to not try and give up are valid, but ultimately the choice is yours to make. Danny’s story is beyond inspiring when you see someone come from a mindset and situation that consumes and devours over 90% of the people engulfed in that life. Which really means, anything is possible and your potential is nearly limitless.   Order Danny Trejo’s new book, Trejo: <a href= "https://bit.ly/trejolifebook">https://bit.ly/trejolifebook</a>   SHOW NOTES: Boxing Champ | Danny shares his time in San Quentin Prison and being a boxing champ [1:12] No Love | Danny explains growing up with no love in the home born into the Trejo gang [2:28] Danny’s Mentor | Learning life skills from a mentor that was criminal in same situation [3:09] Prison Life | Danny on surviving prison and being tough because of his uncle [5:56] Rehabilitated | Danny’s gratitude for a troubled past and why he’s as grateful as he is now [9:14] Confessions | Danny on why his book is so raw and not sugar coated, it’s the real Trejo [10:19] Redemption | Danny on taking inventory and questioning his behaviors and his mottos [12:38] Taking Out Trash | Why Danny began taking out trash for old neighbors, new reputation [13:56] Service to Others | Danny on why helping others is so important to the way he lives [17:15] Arguments | Danny on the bottomline of arguing, not engaging and the toxicity of it [22:13] Legacy | Danny reveals the love is his family and the legacy that holds value for him [25:51]   QUOTES: “I got a couple of scars from what I wasn't quick enough to duck. But you know what, it really showed me that I didn't want to get hit.” [2:04]   “I've realized about prison, it's easy to be a big fish in a little pond” [6:00]   “There's only two kinds of people in prison, there's predator, and there's prey, and you have to figure I'm gonna be a predator, or you'll be prey.” [6:31]   “Remember that you’re only sick as your secrets” [13:36]     Follow Danny Trejo: Website: [https://dannytrejo.com/] (https://dannytrejo.com/) Twitter: <a href= "https://twitter.com/officialDannyT">https://twitter.com/officialDannyT</a> Facebook: <a href= "https://www.facebook.com/officialdannytrejo">https://www.facebook.com/officialdannytrejo</a> Instagram: <a href= "https://www.instagram.com/officialdannytrejo/?hl=en">https://www.instagram.com/officialdannytrejo/?hl=en</a>     ...

You want to see the main character go through their perilous journey and come out on the other side victorious after the big battle or challenge that was seemingly impossible. When that story is real life, it causes you to pause and take inventory of your own story. What situation are you facing, how is your current situation in comparison to the underdog you just cheered for? Sometimes those questions can really sting, especially if you feel like or can see proof that you are not living up to your full potential. Wallo267, is an incredible entrepreneur, marketer, and self-made millionaire that joins me to discuss how his no BS mentality took him from a life of crime to a life filled with meaning, purpose, and unmistakable success. He was in and out of jail from the age of 11 and eventually served a 20 year prison sentence. What he’s accomplished in this time and came out of jail equipped and prepared to do will leave you speechless and questioning exactly how you’re using excuses and potentially clinging to a victim mentality.. From Philly to Hollywood, these are lessons on building an extraordinarily successful business from nothing.   SHOW NOTES: 0:00 | Introduction Wallo 267 2:58 | No One to Blame 3:57 | Locked Up Age 11 7:29 | No Time for Excuses 13:25 | Serving Time, Not Mad 15:08 | Imagination & Potential in Jail 17:40 | Starts New Marketing Business 19:03 | Google & YouTube Universities 22:04 | Willing To Do The Work 24:23 | Free Marketing Available 26:04 | Wallo on Allow Self To Cry 30:31 | Exposure Is Everything 31:29 | Stop Copying Others 32:47 | Knowing Yourself 35:55 | Surviving Prison 38:39 | Adapting to the Real World 40:15 | Going to Atlanta & Business 48:38 | Next Level Application 51:41 | Positive Not Angry   QUOTES: “We go through some we're always looking for somebody to blame for our existence in a fucked up place. No, I paid for this train ticket to here. I paid for the train ticket. I got on the train. It was many stops before that I could have got off. No, I went to the final destination.” [3:24]   “I spent more time incarcerated than I did free on this planet that fucked me up.” [5:52]   “Now it's time to just be out here on a journey through life experiencing new things, new ideas, exposure, and that's what I realized. A lot of us don't expose ourselves to new things, new ideas. We're not open, open to different open to change. And that's what helped me I became open to all this shit.” [9:51]   “I wasn’t in jail, I was in Yale. I wasn't in prison, I was in Princeton. I wasn't in the state pen, I was in Penn State.” [13:29]   “The world is one big library and everybody's a book, [...] read your books wisely. Choose them wisely. Watch what books you read.” [25:08]   “Sometimes you got to remove yourself from people, places, and things. That's not just not going to allow you to embrace the reality in your individualism of who you are.” [32:56]   “You got to have a conversation with self about the reality of your journey, and once you connect with that it's a wrap.” [33:35]   “A lot of times you got idea killers out here and sometimes idea killers and dream killers be yourself.” [34:37]   Guest Bio: Wallo rose to cultural phenom status in two short years after serving a 20 year prison sentence by catching lightning in a bottle: crafting powerful viral content inspiring people across the world to step into their greatness and discover their purpose.   Follow Wallo 267: Website: [https://www.wallo267.com/] (https://www.wallo267.com/) Twitter: [https://twitter.com/WALLO267] (https://twitter.com/WALLO267) Instagram: <a href= "https://www.instagram.com/wallo267/">https://www.instagram.com/wallo267/</a> YouTube: <a href= "https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCSq2DFO-UlLVtifFsD3DJ5g"> https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCSq2DFO-UlLVtifFsD3DJ5g</a> ...

InsideTracker: Get 25% off their entire store at insidetracker.com/impacttheory We’ve all experienced those moments when it feels like the odds are stacked against you in a mighty way. In those moments, your willingness to survive, fight back, and come out on the other side unscathed is critical. But, when the odds are stacked against you in the form of corruption that leads to being wrongly convicted and railroaded into a life sentence in prison, it takes an immense amount of resilience and fortitude to strategically plan a way through a broken unjust system. Isaac Wright, Jr. has experienced this first hand after 7 years imprisoned and 9 additional years under investigation after passing the New Jersey State Bar exam. Isaac speaks to patience, calculated moves, and what it takes to turn anger and bitterness into usable skills that have a real impact.   SHOW NOTES: 0:00 | Introduction to Isaac Wright 1:33 | Self Representation And No Believers 3:52 | Having a Voice Most Important 5:07 | Surrounded by Corruption 6:38 | Sentenced but Setting The Next Move 10:45 | Creating New Case Law From Jail 15:44 | Moving Through System As 2 People 18:30 | Managing Emotions In Midst Of Chaos 23:36 | Isaac Defending Self In 3rd Person 29:45 | Running For Mayor of NYC 33:33 | Making Complex Problems Small 44:23 | Breaking Injustice With Minute Details   QUOTES: “Because at that point, I was going to be a slave to somebody else's strategy, somebody else's thought process, and someone else's motives” [2:30]   “The level of corruption that had engulfed me as a young man alone, the book was written before the indictment came down, and that was really my reality.” [5:39]   “My strategy shifted to making sure that when I went to prison, they wasn't going to be able to keep me. And so everything I did was not for the day, everything that I did was for years down the line.” [10:16]   “The more I know about them, and the less they know about me, the better off I am” [13:20]   “One of the things about injustice, if you fight injustice with justice, you wreak havoc upon injustice, it's like water and oil, it's never going to mix” [16:55]   “As a six-year-old kid, I understood the importance of fighting back no matter how much danger you're in.” [21:59]   “I needed to separate myself from what I was going through in order to stay focused and it took me some time, but I literally became a different person. I was representing myself as someone else.” [24:48]   “I always take a granular approach to the things that I'm experiencing in life.” [34:22]   Guest Bio: Isaac Wright Jr. (born January 23, 1962) is an American lawyer in the state of New Jersey. He is a candidate for mayor of New York City in the 2021 New York City mayoral election. Wright was convicted in 1991 after a five-week trial by a 12-person jury of 10 charges involving the sale of cocaine and sentenced to life in prison, but his conviction was overturned in 1997 after litigation brought by him and his lawyer, on the basis that police concealed evidence.   Follow Isaac Wright Jr: Website: <a href= "https://hunthamlinridley.com/attorneys/isaac-wright-jr/"> https://hunthamlinridley.com/attorneys/isaac-wright-jr/</a> LinkedIn: <a href= "https://www.linkedin.com/in/isaacwrightjr/">https://www.linkedin.com/in/isaacwrightjr/</a> Facebook: <a href= "https://www.facebook.com/isaacwrightjr">https://www.facebook.com/isaacwrightjr</a> Instagram: <a href= "https://www.instagram.com/isaacwrightjr/">https://www.instagram.com/isaacwrightjr/</a> Twitter: <a href= "https://twitter.com/IsaacWrightJr">https://twitter.com/IsaacWrightJr</a>   ...

From the way you decide on political issues to the way you tune out dissenting views, and decide against conversations with certain people every choice is backed by some belief in what you consider to be right. Michael Shermer, who I dubbed, the King Skeptic, joins me and discusses why free speech matters most when people don't want to hear it, and the power behind social signaling that helps shed light on some of the breakdowns being seen on a global scale. Michael’s ability to think through strong opposing arguments searching for truth and charitable interpretation and tolerance for others is foundational.   Order Michael Shermer’s book, Giving The Devil His Due: <a href= "https://amzn.to/2TWVvfq">https://amzn.to/2TWVvfq</a>   QUOTES: “much of decision making about truth is made under uncertainty.” [14:31]   “if you want to speak out, because you don't believe this ideology, and you see your neighbor, you know, hauled off and you never see him again, it's like, ‘I'm keeping my mouth shut.’” [33:02]   “if the only answer could be I'm 100% behind it. Or else, I'm not gonna say anything. Well, that's not good for society.”   “so social media is basically taking this natural human propensity to talk about other people. And marrying it to the negativity bias where we notice negative things more than positive things.” [50:26]   “losses hurt twice as much as gains feel good.” [50:46]   “try to separate what I want to be true from what is actually true.” [1:04:01]   “ it's good to remember on commercial television, there's commercials. And so the content is basically whatever it takes to get people to get from one commercial to the next with that clicking away.” [1:07:25]   “if you're going to write a law, you should write it in a way that you don't know which group you're going to be in,” [1:20:03]   “put yourself in the position of you're the lone voice. And do you or do you not want to be heard? Of course, people want to be heard.

And actually that makes us more insecure.” [22:30]   “At the end of the day, self acceptance is your greatest sword. That is what is going to make you the most desirable to yourself and to others. Do not fall for standards of beauty.” [24:00]   “The fact that we have to fight it says that there's something to fight, and there's a system in place that we constantly have to buffer ourselves against “ [34:47]   “It is our inner that is represented on the outside on a global scale” [40:26]   “The scourge of humanity and mental illness is our deep void, our insecurity which is causing us to want to go to Mars and colonize it and go to every corner of the earth and dominate, similarly with our partners.

The chaos that can get unleashed on your body from your diet is so important to understand. Having low energy and brain fog is not only frustrating but it feels debilitating as well. I've had my own recent experience with low energy that had me questioning if I had lost my drive. Starting with my diet and realizing pecans were causing my energy to feel so low was shocking for me. Dr. Steven Gundry's latest book, The Energy Paradox, reveals what's taking place on a cellular level that was affecting the body's energy. He joins me to unpack how significant gut health is to your immune system and brain. We get into the chaos leaky gut causes and how you can make better choices to restore your energy. Even if you have a healthy diet, Dr. Gundry, a cardiothoracic surgeon, will surprise you.   Order Dr. Gundry’s new book, The Energy Paradox: <a href= "https://www.amazon.com/dp/0063005735?tag=imprintweb-20"> https://www.amazon.com/dp/0063005735?tag=imprintweb-20</a>   QUOTES: “believe it or not in the American diet 24 hours a day, we're causing leaky gut we're assaulting our immune system, [...] just from fat, we are just a giant ball of inflammation.” [18:54]   “So if we look at energy production, as literally cars moving down through a freeway, it's no wonder that even though we're eating huge amounts of calories, we have no energy because we literally log jam the mitochondria.” [38:29]   “You've got to eat for your gut microbiome first, and you have to choose foods that they want to eat. And if you do that, they will take care of you.” [40:09]   “We die, we get diseases, by breaks in the wall of our gut that start this process” [41:05]   “If you begin to gradually restrict the time you eat down to about six to eight hours a day, you will develop much better functioning mitochondria, you'll actually have a better gut wall because you're not working on digestion. 24 hours a day. And you're gonna protect your brain.” [41:57]   Guest Bio: Dr. Steven Gundry is an American doctor and author. He is a former cardiac surgeon and currently runs his own clinic, investigating the impact of diet on health. Gundry conducted cardiac surgery research in the 1990s and was a pioneer in infant heart transplant surgery, and is a New York Times best-selling author of The Plant Paradox: The Hidden Dangers in "Healthy" Foods That Cause Disease and Weight Gain. He is best known for his disputed claims that lectins, a type of plant protein found in numerous foods, cause inflammation resulting in many modern diseases.   Follow Steven Gundry: Website: [https://gundrymd.com/] (https://gundrymd.com/) Youtube: <a href= "https://www.youtube.com/channel/UC4ODXZL2r3XepieV0uoRjNA"> https://www.youtube.com/channel/UC4ODXZL2r3XepieV0uoRjNA</a> Facebook: <a href= "https://www.facebook.com/GundryMD/">https://www.facebook.com/GundryMD/</a> Instagram: <a href= "https://www.instagram.com/gundrymd/">https://www.instagram.com/gundrymd/</a> Twitter: [https://twitter.com/DrGundry] (https://twitter.com/DrGundry) Podcast: <a href= "https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCtxo0nTZjzlKJq5-vJq6s6g"> https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCtxo0nTZjzlKJq5-vJq6s6g</a>   ...

And if you want to calculate the inflation index, you have to construct a market basket of goods and services and assets that you would want to acquire.” [33:54]   “I have to invest it in a strategy, which is going to appreciate faster than the money is devalued.” [40:07]   “So the discount rate is jumping, which means the value of the cash flows into the future is collapsing.” [48:30]   “Bitcoin is the strongest asset the human race has ever invented, it's like gold with none of the defects of goal.” [51:22]   “The volatility is the price you pay for the performance that you get, and oftentimes, the best investment idea isn't the most comfortable investment idea” [1:05:24]   “It really comes down to what is your aspiration, and that determines your hurdle rate. What you want determines your inflation rate and your inflation rate determines your hurdle rate.” [1:08:14]   “It's very rare that you find it a technology that's the solution to every rich person's problem and every poor person's problem simultaneously.” [1:20:28]   Guest Bio: Mr. Saylor attended the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT) on a full Air Force Reserve Officer Training Corps scholarship. While at MIT, he was a member of the Theta Delta Chi fraternity, and obtained dual degrees in aeronautics and astronautics as well as science, technology and society.   Follow Michael Saylor: Website: [https://www.hope.com/] (https://www.hope.com/) Twitter: <a href= "https://twitter.com/michael_saylor">https://twitter.com/michael_saylor</a> Facebook: <a href= "https://www.facebook.com/msaylor">https://www.facebook.com/msaylor</a> Instagram: <a href= "https://www.instagram.com/michael_saylor/">https://www.instagram.com/michael_saylor/</a>   ...

When you think of empathy you may think of being overpowered with feelings and emotions for someone close to you that is having a response to something. Possibly you lump sympathy in the same basket with empathy and toss kindness in for good measure.

As technology advances, biologists such as the Chief Science Officer of the SENS Research Foundation, Aubrey de Grey, is leading the way to pioneering tech that will allow you to choose how long you want to live. For years scientists have been trying to find a way to slow down the aging process, but Aubrey introduces the idea of repairing the damage that aging does on the body to theoretically restore the body’s biological age to maybe 30 years younger. If you are familiar with the obsession I’ve had with living forever, you already know how much this excites me.   SHOW NOTES: Quality of Life | Aubrey on why a long life depends on the quality and being invested in choice [0:58] Reverse Aging | Why damage repair could be easier than slowing aging & the push back met [4:40] Indefinite Life | Aubrey on why the result of expected life for reversed aging could be indefinite [8:08] Structure Repair | Landing on the idea of repairing structure to restore cellular level function [9:32] Pushback | Aubrey on pushback among scientists about reverse aging in biology [11:17] Body Damage | Aubrey on self-inflicted damage being reversed to same level 30 years prior [14:13] Longevity Escape Velocity | Aubrey on his theory how to reverse biological age 30 years [16:26] Types of Damage | 7 categories of damage that correspond to therapeutic methods of repair [21:18] Stem Cell Therapy | Aubrey explains how stem cells could treat loss of cell problems [22:17] Cancer Treatments | Aubrey gives category of damage due to too many cells [23:26] Senescent Cells | Aubrey explains how these cells can promote cancer [26:53] Mitochondrial Mutations | Aubrey explains problems at the molecular level inside cells [28:53] Cellular Waste | Aubrey breaks down how cellular waste over years impacts old age [33:35] Macular Degeneration | Aubrey explains specific enzymes that could prevent blindness  [35:24] Excretion | Aubrey explains diseases that could be resolved by breaking down waste [37:50] Alzheimer’s | Breaking down amyloid as extracellular waste and modest benefit [39:22] Advancing Therapies | Aubrey gives sobering guess how close effective therapies are [44:07]     QUOTES: “I want to make sure that my choice about how long to live, and, of course, how high quality that life will be, is not progressively taken away from me by aging.” [2:24]   “Old age is something that evolution doesn't care about at all. Evolution only cares about the propagation of genetic information.” [34:41]   “you've got to fix them all. You haven't got to fix any of them perfectly. But you've got to fix them all pretty well.” [43:28]   “what excites me is typically the breakthroughs that would take me half an hour background to describe why it's even important.” [46:16]   Guest Bio: Dr. de Grey is the biomedical gerontologist who devised the SENS platform and established SENS Research Foundation to implement it. He received his BA in Computer Science and Ph.D. in Biology from the University of Cambridge in 1985 and 2000, respectively.
