    A product of LSD> Essentially speaking the obvious in a grandiose way. These ideas aren’t new. Just rehashed. The problem with acid is that when you come down, finding the resolution is not so clear. And as you grow older, the ideal is not as solid as you once perceived. The presumption that we are any more intelligent than people in past history is a misnomer. What has changed is our library of information. If we suddenly lost that, people would appear to grow more "stupid" over time.

    This is your brain on crack.

  21. Drixidamus on July 16, 2022 at 10:41 pm

    Checked out your stuff after checking out your interview on the Tim Ferris podcast. Great video. I’m not sure how your message attracted so many trolls.

  22. HackermanBlue on July 16, 2022 at 10:44 pm

    Walk into every moms basement and you will be there.

  23. David Stack on July 16, 2022 at 10:46 pm

    Sounds like "Falling Slowly" from the movie Once. Search youtube for "falling slowly piano"

  24. Sarah Christine on July 16, 2022 at 10:46 pm

    lol that was fun.
    Not sure how you attracted a bunch of assholes to comment on this.
    I saw your interview with Lewis Howes. Loved it 🙂

  25. ThingThought on July 16, 2022 at 10:46 pm

    what’s your job? and what studies did you go through? just wondering, i haven’t started my studies yet

  26. philips1998 on July 16, 2022 at 10:47 pm

    Mindblowing..

  27. OpenSource Citizen on July 16, 2022 at 10:47 pm

    ….this will be the best 2mins of your day.

  28. Moe Olmos on July 16, 2022 at 10:48 pm

    This guy is a highly evolved intellectual and very charismatic. He seems to quote Timothy Leary quite often whom once said he was carrying out the work of the late Aleister Crowley. I wounder if he to is an extension of his work. You know the philosophy of Elevating man to Godhood through his intellect and knowledge. The eating of the forbidden fruit and the rejecting of God. I think France Bacon spoke of it and called it the New Atlantis. I think I read this in a sci fi book for christian once

  29. Pistol Pete on July 16, 2022 at 10:49 pm

    God Damn Jason!!! freaking mind blowing…

  30. Renee Truman on July 16, 2022 at 10:53 pm

    Hmmm, He’s sort of like a hip, #EMO, Latin-Jewish version of #CarlSagan – sans the #zeitgeist moments, of course …

  33. Chowder Head on July 16, 2022 at 11:01 pm

    No mention of the people enslaving minds and keeping millions in a state of suffering and billions in a state of servitude, but..pleasant

  34. srinidhi s bharadwaj on July 16, 2022 at 11:02 pm

    That’s some energy you got there expressing yourself

  35. Christina Vendley on July 16, 2022 at 11:03 pm

    "Imagination let’s us conceive the best future possibilities, pick the most amazing one and pull the future forward to meet it." That’s a WOW!!!!

  36. Hypnagogia on July 16, 2022 at 11:05 pm

    Excellent. Too bad your comment was overlooked by others, I agree with you.

  37. Nick Nichols on July 16, 2022 at 11:05 pm

  45. fuck on July 16, 2022 at 11:13 pm

  46. GreatMinds GreatQuotes on July 16, 2022 at 11:13 pm

    So for me to quote him would be kind of tricky. 🙂 Great inspirational video!

  47. Medusa Negrita on July 16, 2022 at 11:13 pm

    So far out of the entire video…the only words that are truly Silva’s was the word…"Wow." Aside from that he’s a walking citation.

  48. Vector Sigma on July 16, 2022 at 11:15 pm

    I love you

  49. CriMxDelAxCriM on July 16, 2022 at 11:15 pm
