    I've been waiting for this for two weeks! Had two awesome conversations with Steven and he mentioned this was going to come out soon.   Amazing research guys!

    What role do nootropics play in this, re: nicotine? Very thought provoking podcast!

    very cool podcast. As a surfer, I know exactly what he is talking about. Sometimes when I am designing (graphic) I lose track of what is going on around me and if there is even any music or anything playing. I also do some public speaking and have experienced it there as well. 
    To be able to cultivate it in more parts of my life would be amazing.

    i wonder. all great troops are very humane. i was an anglico marine. my peers are marine snipers and recon marines. we are all ivy league grads and we give back to society outside of the war zone.  i created a free medical tourist military program for iraqi kids and it helped me be a greater warrior.  we must love all that we do w, whether in the dark or in the light. this is true flow. no judgment….  

    this guy seems confused.

    i was also a monk for 10 years.  the thai military has many monks in their ranks. you must as a young adult go into the monastery and the military.

    patton was a kook and was not accepted by most. the military has always preached brotherhood and sisterhood.

    it is the spectacle of media that shows this as a new dynamic.  the truth is that you are in love with your country and your brother and sister.  but this love is not blind, for your battle buddy can screw you too much like a nation.  so,  you fight on kantian imperative of duty. and take on the consequences and progress: whether in a body bag, or in an inpatient setting, or  a fictional place the tv super bowl  ads call "home'

    if you experience fragging, you will know that war is not always the myth of brotherhood.  you fight because that is all you have.  you do look at others in the mix but there is a haze in war.  and the many military authors, movie folks, etc. miss this point…

    empathy is important but you must find it at a transformative level while using context.  specific context.

    fyi during the first japanese invasion of korea, the monks led the guerilla war and suppressed the samurai. 

    the monk warrior archetype is an eastern discovery and cannot be accepted in jansenist influenced western euro thinking.

    when did the military change to protect your brother?  martial tradition embodies this concept.

    maybe we can have a dialogue about biohacking ptsd.  i have been on this road of transcending my iraq readjustment issues since my return from iraq.  i survived a separation. i am great dad to my son, i am a top student an ivy league doctoral program and i have a full-time job.  essayons  

    i do appreciate your philosophy and am thankful to you david asprey.

    Very interested in Mr. Koetler and considered buying his book until he repeatedly confused "empathy" with "apathy". Realizing that people make slips but I Can't get over that from a writer. Killed his credibility for me.

    Okay. That introduction is just plain wrong. The data sample was clearly skewed by the likely inclusion of African countries.

    Marijuana almost always gets me into flow when I'm active. Either doing martial arts, training or surfing.

    I really don't like how he generalizes all flow states into experiences of strong addiction.. He's not totally wrong, but really guilty of generalization.
