There are so many things wrong with this ignorant article making the rounds:
‘You can’t stop consenting adults from being stupid,’ Marler said. ‘But we should at least try.’
This is a rather analogous situation to the criticism of Sam Harris I wrote last week.
Scientific/Rational/Technophiles resting in Intellectual Superiority while making fun of the supposedly idiot hippies…when they are actually committing idiocy through Scientific Reductionism.
Look the Scientific Culture may get their rocks off making fun of the Hippy Dippy Crunchy Granola Hippies. But they’re the fucking Neanderthals here.
This group literally represents a lower level of development in developmental psychology, on a dozen different psychometric scales.
(Orange/Green if you know Spiral Dynamics or invariant Integral Developmental Psychology)
However the Scientific/Rationalist level of development loves competition. So what I’m trying to impress with many of my posts is that there is actually a competitive advantage to the higher levels of development,
…That comprise ‘Trans-Rational Thinking” and “Non-Duality and Awakening via Meditation”…so y’all should actually invest the time and energy to get to these higher stages to remain Evolutionarily Relevant.
The Scientific Rationalists think they’re winning because the hippies in the level right above them are usually not very good at rationalist language.
Unfortunately for them, I am very good with scientific, rationalist language and concepts and am multiple levels above both the Scientific Rationalists and the Post-Modern Hippies.
And can easily run Intellectual Circles around these undeservedly intellectually arrogant scientific rationalists…like a Spiritual Conor McGregor Knocking out of Reigning Champ Jose Aldo in 13 seconds…
So let’s breakdown their idiocy and competitive inferiority:
1) I actually drink this water and get it delivered to my home every 2 weeks. I know this water is better than average water and even better than other spring water because I can Fucking Taste It.
Here’s my raw water and less-expensive spring water:
My home water setup – Raw Spring Water on the left & Mayacamas Spring Water on the right
I even ran blind taste tests with myself and friends.
Yes, Rationalists, how something tastes is a valid epistemological method of knowing.
Learn to use the amazing precise measuring tool that is YOUR BODY and all of its beautiful sensory apparatuses. It is actually far more powerful than most scientific measuring devices if you learn how to use it properly. And it’s real-time!
2) They irrationally fear all bacteria. There is a germaphobe mentality to this critique. When in reality, the gut requires billions of good bacteria to function properly and optimally. This is called pro-biotics. And this water contains lots of these good bacteria.
3) This article wasn’t even fact checked. Might as well call it FAKE NEWS. Why bitch about ‘stupid hippies drinking raw water’ if no one has even gotten sick yet?
Live Water says, “We’ve been selling raw spring water for 3 years, and not one single person has ever gotten sick from the water we bottle
The FDA arrived to our bottling facility on Friday, and they confirmed everything we are doing is completely safe.”
4) Poverty mindset of being unwilling to invest in health
“OMG this water is $50…I can get free water from my tap LOLOLOLO”
Ok, our bodies are composed of ~70% water, why would I not spend $50-100 a month on one of the largest input sources to my feeling of well-being and productivity.
Are these people not willing to invest in improving themselves?
The problem probably goes back to (1)…they are so in their head they have no felt sense of their body so can’t tell that this water actually makes them feel better.
Net Net — People who are stuck in their heads and unable to read sensorial signals from the body are significantly evolutionarily maladaptive in 2018 and over the next few decades will dramatically lose the Memetic Natural Selection Culture War with the Post-Hippie Integralists.
So your best option is to stop spouting stupid shit and just do the personal development work to get access to Trans-Rational Non-Dual Awakened Awareness that is Competitively Fueled by Raw Water.
Mystic Max Out!
