00:27
today,
00:27
Matt,
00:28
over
00:28
to
00:28
you.
00:29  Mat
Hey
00:29
Ben
00:29
and
00:29
listeners.
00:30
This
00:30
is
00:30
Matt,
00:30
and
00:31
I'm
00:31
looking
00:31
forward
00:31
to
00:31
being
00:31
here
00:32
with
00:32
you
00:32
guys
00:32
today.
00:33  Ben
Awesome
00:33
Matt,
00:34
and
00:34
to
00:34
give
00:34
our
00:34
listeners
00:35
a
00:35
bit
00:35
of
00:35
background,
00:35
Matt
00:36
has
00:36
expertise
00:37
in
00:37
physics
00:37
and
00:37
pure
00:38
mathematics
00:39
and
00:39
his
00:39
breadth
00:39
of
00:39
knowledge
00:40
is
00:40
quite
00:40
impressive
00:41
actually,
00:42
but
00:42
mostly
00:43
he's
00:43
just
00:43
fun
00:43
to
00:43
talk
00:44
to
00:44
Matt.
00:45
Is
00:45
there
00:45
anything
00:45
you'd
00:46
like
00:46
to
00:46
tell
00:46
the
00:46
listeners?
00:47  Mat
I
00:47
have
00:47
a
00:47
diverse
00:48
working
00:48
background
00:49
from
00:49
many
00:49
different
00:49
aspects
00:50
of
00:50
life.
00:51
I've
00:51
worked
00:51
in
00:51
a
00:51
bunch
00:51
of
00:51
different
00:52
industries,
00:52
done
00:53
a
00:53
ton
00:53
of
00:53
different
00:53
things.
00:54
I've
00:54
owned
00:54
a
00:54
few
00:55
businesses
00:55
and
00:56
I've
00:56
traveled
00:56
to
00:56
a
00:57
lot
00:57
of
00:57
different
00:57
places
00:57
in
00:58
the
00:58
U
00:58
S
00:58
I'd
00:58
say
00:59
probably
00:59
traveled
00:59
to
00:59
more
01:00
places
01:00
than
01:00
I
01:00
haven't,
01:01
which
01:01
I
01:01
think
01:02
gives
01:02
me
01:02
a
01:02
pretty
01:02
well-rounded
01:03
idea
01:03
of
01:04
different
01:04
aspects
01:04
of
01:04
our
01:05
own
01:05
culture,
01:05
as
01:05
well
01:06
as
01:06
other
01:06
people
01:06
that
01:06
we
01:07
lived
01:07
next
01:07
to.
01:07
And
01:08
we
01:08
talk
01:08
to
01:08
everyday
01:08
across
01:09
the
01:09
U
01:09
S
01:10
I
01:10
try
01:10
to
01:10
keep
01:10
myself
01:11
as
01:11
well-rounded,
01:11
as
01:12
I
01:12
can
01:12
with
01:12
an
01:12
open
01:13
mind,
01:13
but
01:13
not
01:14
so
01:14
much
01:14
that
01:14
my
01:14
brain
01:14
necessarily
01:15
falls
01:15
out.
01:16
I
01:16
do
01:16
enjoy
01:16
math,
01:17
physics,
01:17
philosophy,
01:18
politics,
01:19
chemistry,
01:20
any,
01:20
anything,
01:21
it's
01:21
all
01:21
part
01:21
of
01:21
the
01:21
same
01:22
tree.
01:23
And
01:23
as
01:23
long
01:23
as
01:23
it
01:23
keeps
01:24
its
01:24
interest
01:24
to
01:24
me,
01:25
Kind
01:26
of
01:26
hard
01:26
not
01:26
to
01:26
do,
01:27
but
01:27
I
01:27
am
01:27
excited
01:27
to
01:27
be
01:27
a
01:28
part
01:28
of
01:28
the
01:28
show
01:28
today.
01:29
I
01:29
do
01:29
hope
01:30
that
01:30
my
01:30
point
01:30
of
01:30
view
01:30
at
01:30
the
01:31
very
01:31
least
01:31
helps
01:31
somebody
01:32
somewhere
01:32
ask
01:33
themselves
01:33
a
01:33
question
01:35
and
01:35
maybe
01:35
go
01:35
look
01:35
it
01:35
up
01:35
for
01:36
themselves,
01:36
potentially
01:36
something
01:37
that
01:37
they
01:37
haven't
01:38
ever
01:38
thought
01:38
about
01:38
before.
01:39  Ben
Awesome.
01:40
Thanks
01:40
Matt.
01:41
One
01:41
more
01:41
thing,
01:42
Matt
01:42
and
01:42
I
01:42
were
01:42
talking
01:43
just
01:43
before
01:43
the
01:43
podcast.
01:44
So
01:44
I
01:44
wanted
01:44
to
01:44
catch
01:45
you
01:45
up
01:45
on
01:45
the
01:45
conversation
01:46
also.
01:47
Pardon
01:48
the
01:48
scatter
01:49
brained
01:49
conversation.
01:50
It
01:50
all
01:51
relates
01:51
to
01:51
one
01:51
big
01:52
thing.
01:52
If
01:52
you
01:52
just
01:53
hang
01:53
in
01:53
there
01:53
past
01:54
the
01:54
first
01:54
30
01:54
minutes,
01:55
I
01:55
promise
01:55
you
01:55
it'll
01:55
be
01:56
worth
01:56
your
01:56
time.
01:57
So
01:57
yeah,
01:57
we're
01:57
basically
01:58
discussing
01:58
the
01:59
psychology
02:00
and
02:00
how
02:01
our
02:01
current
02:01
system
02:02
here
02:02
in
02:03
the
02:03
U
02:03
S
02:03
anyway
02:04
is
02:04
set
02:05
up
02:05
for
02:05
failure
02:06
on
02:07
multiple
02:07
different
02:08
levels.
02:08
And
02:08
we
02:09
are
02:10
nowhere
02:11
near
02:11
what
02:12
I
02:12
expect
02:12
of
02:12
ourselves.
02:13
For
02:14
instance,
02:15
I
02:15
have
02:15
been
02:15
trying
02:15
to
02:16
receive
02:17
mental
02:17
health
02:18
care
02:18
for
02:18
the
02:18
last
02:19
three
02:19
months.
02:20
At
02:20
least
02:21
in
02:21
fact,
02:21
it
02:21
may
02:21
have
02:22
even
02:22
been
02:22
longer
02:22
than
02:22
that
02:23
from
02:23
both
02:24
my
02:24
doctors
02:24
and
02:24
seeking
02:25
it
02:25
out.
02:25
Personally,
02:26
I
02:26
cannot
02:27
find
02:28
a
02:28
mental
02:28
health
02:29
care
02:29
professional
02:30
that
02:30
can
02:30
help
02:30
me
02:31
because
02:31
they're
02:31
so
02:32
full.
02:33
There's
02:33
no
02:33
room
02:34
in
02:35
anywhere
02:36
I've
02:36
tried.
02:37
And
02:38
then
02:38
we
02:38
were
02:39
talking
02:39
about
02:40
that.
02:40
And
02:40
as
02:40
we
02:41
got
02:41
into
02:41
that,
02:41
you
02:41
were
02:41
saying
02:42
that
02:42
the
02:42
entire
02:42
system
02:43
is
02:43
built
02:43
for
02:44
failure.
02:47  Mat
Yeah.
02:47
It's
02:47
kind
02:47
of,
02:48
it's
02:48
the
02:48
inevitable
02:48
outcome
02:49
of
02:49
that
02:49
system.
02:50
So
02:50
if
02:50
you
02:51
want
02:51
to
02:51
know
02:51
what
02:51
a
02:51
system
02:52
is
02:52
for
02:53
what
02:53
it's
02:53
built
02:53
for,
02:54
look
02:54
at
02:54
what
02:54
it
02:54
produces.
02:55
Don't
02:55
listen
02:56
to
02:56
what
02:56
people
02:57
tell
02:57
you
02:57
it's
02:57
for.
02:57
Don't
02:58
look
02:58
at
02:58
what
02:58
it
02:58
seems
02:59
like
02:59
it
02:59
might
02:59
be
02:59
built
02:59
for
03:01
a
03:01
system.
03:01
Does
03:01
what
03:02
it
03:02
does.
03:02
It
03:02
outputs,
03:03
what
03:03
outputs
03:03
with
03:04
whatever
03:04
input
03:04
you
03:05
provide
03:05
to
03:05
it.
03:05
So
03:05
whether
03:06
or
03:06
not
03:06
we're
03:06
consciously
03:07
making
03:07
that
03:07
decision
03:08
or
03:08
it's
03:08
by
03:08
design
03:09
from
03:10
people
03:10
up
03:10
top.
03:10
However
03:10
you
03:11
want
03:11
to
03:11
look
03:11
at
03:11
that.
03:12
Our
03:12
system
03:13
produces
03:13
an
03:13
unintelligent
03:14
education
03:15
system.
03:15
It
03:16
produces
03:16
people
03:16
that
03:16
are
03:17
unhealthy.
03:18
It
03:18
makes
03:18
it
03:18
harder
03:19
to
03:19
get
03:19
a
03:19
hold
03:20
of
03:20
products
03:20
that
03:21
are
03:21
healthier
03:21
for
03:22
you,
03:22
both
03:22
food
03:23
and
03:23
topological
03:23
products
03:24
that
03:24
go
03:24
on
03:24
your
03:24
skin.
03:25
Everything
03:25
causes
03:25
cancer.
03:26
Nowadays
03:27
our
03:27
FDA
03:28
is
03:28
a
03:28
laughing
03:29
stock.
03:29
It's
03:29
a
03:29
joke,
03:30
but
03:31
you
03:31
want
03:31
to
03:31
know
03:31
what
03:31
our
03:31
system
03:32
is
03:32
for?
03:33
That's
03:33
what
03:33
it's
03:33
for.
03:33
What
03:34
it
03:34
produces.
03:35  Ben
So
03:36
we're
03:36
all
03:36
kind
03:37
of
03:37
just
03:37
stuck
03:37
in
03:38
the
03:38
system.
03:39
And
03:39
I
03:40
know
03:40
I've
03:40
heard
03:40
that
03:41
our
03:41
school
03:41
system
03:42
is
03:42
designed
03:43
for
03:43
warehouse
03:44
manufacturing,
03:45
standing
03:45
in
03:45
line,
03:46
taking
03:46
orders,
03:47
not
03:47
questioning
03:48
judgment
03:48
understanding
03:49
systems
03:50
to
03:50
a
03:50
minimal
03:51
degree
03:51
so
03:52
that
03:52
you
03:52
can
03:53
potentially
03:54
flourish,
03:55
but
03:56
never
03:56
actually
03:57
flourish.
03:58
And
03:58
so
04:00
is
04:00
there
04:00
anything
04:00
else
04:00
you
04:00
want
04:01
to
04:01
add
04:01
to
04:01
that,
04:01
that
04:01
I
04:01
missed?
04:03  Mat
Well,
04:03
you're
04:03
not
04:04
taught
04:04
how
04:04
to
04:04
be
04:04
a
04:04
CEO
04:05
in
04:05
school.
04:06  Ben
That's
04:07
true.
04:07
That's
04:07
true.
04:08
Especially
04:08
in
04:08
business
04:09
management,
04:10  Mat
You're,
04:10
you're
04:10
taught
04:11
how
04:11
to
04:11
be.
04:11
It's
04:12
a
04:12
clerical
04:12
system
04:13
still.
04:13
We're
04:13
still
04:13
going
04:13
off
04:13
of
04:14
the
04:14
old
04:14
school
04:14
clerical
04:14
system.
04:15
So
04:16
anytime
04:17
you
04:17
have
04:17
an
04:17
educational
04:18
system
04:18
in
04:18
a
04:18
public
04:18
sense,
04:20
you're
04:20
going
04:20
to
04:20
get
04:20
a
04:20
little
04:20
bit
04:21
less
04:21
of
04:21
an
04:21
education
04:22
than
04:22
you
04:22
would
04:22
have
04:22
in
04:23
a
04:23
private
04:23
sense.
04:23
Cause
04:23
you're
04:23
paying
04:24
a
04:24
little
04:24
bit
04:24
more
04:24
for
04:24
that.
04:25
But
04:25
as
04:25
far
04:25
as
04:26
your
04:26
education
04:26
goes,
04:28
You're
04:28
in
04:28
a
04:28
system
04:29
that's
04:29
built
04:29
for
04:30
replacing
04:30
somebody
04:31
that's
04:31
already
04:31
in
04:31
the
04:31
workforce,
04:32
right?
04:32
Like
04:32
you
04:32
don't
04:33
have
04:33
to
04:33
do
04:33
anything
04:34
outside
04:34
of
04:34
your
04:34
job.
04:35
You
04:35
don't
04:35
have
04:35
to
04:35
do
04:35
anything
04:36
outside
04:36
of
04:36
this
04:36
niche
04:37
that
04:37
you're
04:37
training
04:37
yourself
04:38
for
04:38
whether
04:39
that's
04:39
college
04:39
or
04:39
just
04:40
basic
04:40
education.
04:41
It's
04:41
an
04:41
education
04:42
system.
04:42
It's
04:42
an
04:42
indoctrination
04:43
system.
04:44
Whether
04:44
or
04:44
not
04:44
you
04:45
choose
04:45
to
04:45
look
04:45
at
04:46
it
04:46
that
04:46
way.
04:47
That's
04:47
what
04:47
it
04:47
is
04:47
like.
04:48
You're,
04:48
you're
04:48
going
04:48
into
04:49
the
04:49
system
04:49
and
04:49
you're
04:49
coming
04:50
out
04:50
a
04:50
certain
04:50
way.
04:50
You're
04:51
not
04:51
coming
04:51
out
04:51
to
04:51
be
04:51
a
04:51
CEO.
04:52
You're
04:52
not
04:52
coming
04:52
out
04:53
to
04:53
be
04:53
on
04:53
top.
04:54
You're
04:54
coming
04:54
out
04:54
to
04:55
work
04:55
for
04:55
those
04:55
people.
04:56
And
04:56
intrinsically,
04:56
whenever
04:57
you
04:57
go
04:57
into
04:57
one
04:57
of
04:57
those
04:57
systems,
04:59
if
04:59
you're
04:59
a
04:59
worker
05:00
for
05:00
a
05:00
major
05:00
corporation,
05:01
the
05:01
work
05:02
that
05:02
you're
05:02
providing
05:02
to
05:03
that
05:03
corporation
05:04
is
05:04
less
05:05
than
05:05
what
05:05
you're
05:05
getting
05:06
paid
05:06
for.
05:07
If
05:07
it
05:07
wasn't
05:07
that
05:08
wouldn't
05:08
be
05:08
a
05:08
good
05:08
business
05:08
decision
05:09
for
05:09
that
05:09
corporation
05:10
and
05:10
or
05:12
the
05:12
product
05:12
that
05:12
that
05:12
corporation
05:13
is
05:13
selling
05:14
is
05:14
worth
05:14
less
05:15
than
05:15
what
05:15
it's
05:15
being
05:15
marketed.
05:17  Ben
Well,
05:17
okay.
05:18
So
05:18
then
05:18
that
05:18
brings
05:18
me
05:19
into
05:19
like
05:19
a
05:20
real
05:20
life
05:20
topical
05:21
situation
05:21
that
05:21
I've
05:21
been
05:22
in
05:22
at
05:23
multiple
05:24
different
05:24
companies
05:24
that
05:24
I
05:24
don't
05:25
really
05:25
wish
05:25
to
05:25
name
05:26
because
05:26
I
05:26
don't
05:26
want
05:27
to
05:27
be
05:27
sued,
05:28
but
05:28
in
05:29
those
05:29
corporations,
05:30
if
05:30
I've
05:30
ever
05:31
drawn
05:31
outside
05:31
of
05:31
the
05:32
line,
05:33
I've
05:33
found
05:34
that
05:34
that
05:35
is
05:35
extremely
05:35
discouraged.
05:36
In
05:36
fact,
05:36
it's
05:36
penalized
05:38
you're
05:38
not
05:38
producing
05:39
a
05:39
certain
05:40
amount
05:40
now
05:41
because
05:41
you're
05:42
thinking
05:42
outside
05:43
the
05:43
box.
05:43
So
05:44
as
05:45
a
05:45
result,
05:45
we
05:45
have
05:45
to
05:45
put
05:46
you
05:46
on
05:46
a
05:46
disciplinary
05:47
or
05:47
reform
05:48
plan
05:48
because
05:49
your
05:50
performance
05:50
isn't
05:51
what
05:51
we
05:51
expect
05:51
it
05:52
to
05:52
be.
05:52
But
05:52
wait,
05:53
I'm
05:54
according
05:54
to
05:54
the
05:54
numbers,
05:55
still
05:55
performing
05:55
exactly
05:56
what
05:56
it
05:56
should
05:56
be.
05:57
In
05:57
fact,
05:58
I'm
05:58
outperforming
05:59
my
05:59
peers.
06:00
Well,
06:00
that
06:01
didn't
06:01
matter.
06:02
It
06:02
wasn't
06:02
that
06:02
I
06:02
was
06:02
outperforming
06:03
my
06:03
peers.
06:04
What
06:04
mattered
06:04
was
06:04
I
06:04
wasn't
06:05
keeping
06:05
my
06:05
mouth
06:05
shut.
06:06
And
06:07
so
06:08
if
06:08
I
06:08
didn't
06:08
follow
06:08
the
06:09
prompts
06:09
on
06:09
screen,
06:10
exactly
06:11
saying
06:11
those
06:12
exact
06:12
words,
06:13
I
06:14
would
06:14
fail
06:14
that
06:15
specific
06:16
instance
06:16
of
06:17
support
06:17
or
06:17
whatever.
06:18
It
06:18
didn't
06:19
matter
06:19
that
06:19
the
06:19
customer's
06:20
issue
06:20
was
06:20
resolved
06:21
in
06:21
three
06:22
minutes
06:22
instead
06:22
of
06:23
eight.
06:23
It
06:23
was
06:24
that
06:24
I
06:24
didn't
06:24
follow
06:25
their
06:25
process.
06:26  Mat
And
06:26
unfortunately,
06:27
there
06:28
might
06:28
be
06:28
certain
06:28
reasons
06:29
for
06:29
that,
06:29
like
06:31
on
06:31
the
06:31
bad
06:31
side
06:32
of
06:32
things,
06:32
if
06:32
you
06:32
look
06:32
at
06:33
it,
06:33
it's
06:33
like,
06:33
no,
06:33
just
06:34
stay
06:34
in
06:34
your
06:34
niche.
06:34
Don't
06:35
go
06:35
outside
06:35
of
06:35
that.
06:36
You
06:37
know,
06:37
we,
06:37
we
06:37
don't
06:37
want
06:38
you
06:38
to
06:38
grow.
06:38
That's
06:38
one
06:39
aspect
06:39
of
06:39
it.
06:40
But
06:40
if
06:40
that's
06:41
not
06:41
the
06:41
case,
06:41
there
06:41
could
06:42
be
06:42
a
06:42
legal
06:42
aspect
06:43
of
06:43
that
06:43
too.
06:43
Right?
06:43
So
06:43
like,
06:43
if
06:44
you're
06:44
working
06:44
for
06:44
a
06:44
bank,
06:45
there
06:45
might
06:46
be
06:46
certain
06:46
things
06:46
that
06:46
you
06:47
absolutely
06:47
have
06:48
to
06:48
say
06:48
to
06:48
the
06:48
customer.
06:49
Like
06:50
you
06:50
can't
06:50
go
06:50
outside
06:51
of
06:51
that
06:51
or
06:51
else
06:51
your
06:51
company
06:52
could
06:52
potentially
06:52
be
06:52
sued.
06:53
So
06:53
they
06:53
give
06:53
you
06:53
these
06:54
really
06:54
direct
06:55
guidelines
06:55
to
06:55
follow.
06:56
And
06:57
if
06:57
you
06:57
don't
06:57
follow
06:57
those,
06:58
then
06:58
that
06:58
could
06:58
be
06:58
bad
06:59
for
06:59
the
06:59
company
06:59
as
06:59
a
06:59
whole.
07:00
So.
07:01
From
07:01
the
07:01
standpoint
07:02
of
07:02
a
07:02
company
07:02
or
07:02
a
07:02
corporation,
07:03
there
07:03
might
07:03
be
07:04
certain
07:04
reasons
07:04
for
07:04
that,
07:05
that
07:05
are
07:05
beneficial
07:05
to
07:06
everybody
07:06
as
07:06
a
07:06
whole,
07:07
or
07:07
for
07:07
them
07:07
to
07:07
be
07:07
able
07:08
to
07:08
even
07:08
work
07:08
in
07:08
that
07:08
business.
07:10
But
07:10
from
07:10
an
07:10
individual
07:11
standpoint,
07:11
if
07:12
there's
07:12
no
07:12
legal
07:13
repercussions
07:14
for
07:14
going
07:14
outside
07:15
of
07:15
your
07:15
little
07:15
niche
07:16
there
07:16
and
07:17
providing
07:17
an
07:17
additional
07:17
service,
07:18
which
07:18
helps
07:18
the
07:19
customers
07:19
and
07:19
intrinsically
07:20
would
07:20
help
07:20
them
07:21
stay
07:21
a
07:21
customer
07:22
because
07:22
they
07:22
appreciate
07:22
the
07:22
customer
07:23
service
07:23
that
07:23
you
07:23
provided
07:24
to
07:24
them.
07:25
Like
07:26
what's
07:26
wrong
07:26
with
07:26
that,
07:26
right.
07:27
But
07:27
there's
07:28
a
07:28
lot
07:28
of
07:28
situations
07:29
where
07:29
that's
07:29
frowned
07:29
upon.
07:30  Ben
I
07:31
see.
07:32
And
07:32
so
07:32
then
07:32
what
07:33
corporations
07:33
do
07:33
is
07:33
they
07:34
twist
07:34
that
07:34
around
07:34
and
07:34
say,
07:34
well,
07:35
anybody
07:36
can
07:36
be
07:36
sued
07:36
in
07:36
the
07:36
us
07:37
anymore.
07:37
So
07:38
we
07:38
have
07:38
to
07:38
make
07:38
sure
07:38
that
07:39
you're
07:39
staying
07:39
on
07:39
this
07:40
specific
07:40
thing,
07:41
because
07:41
if
07:41
you
07:41
color
07:42
outside
07:42
those
07:42
lines,
07:43
there's
07:43
158
07:44
different
07:44
rules
07:44
you
07:45
need
07:45
to
07:45
adhere
07:45
to
07:46
because
07:46
you
07:46
did
07:47
those
07:47
things.
07:48  Mat
I
07:48
mean,
07:48
you
07:48
could
07:49
be
07:49
sued
07:49
for
07:49
practically
07:50
anything.
07:51
It's
07:51
just,
07:51
how
07:51
long
07:51
can
07:52
they
07:52
keep
07:52
you
07:52
in
07:52
the
07:52
court
07:53
and
07:53
keep
07:53
draining
07:53
your
07:53
pocket.
07:54
Right.
07:54
Even
07:54
if
07:54
it's
07:55
a,
07:55
a
07:55
fraudulent
07:56
court
07:56
case,
07:56
even
07:57
if
07:57
it's
07:57
not
07:57
going
07:57
to
07:57
go
07:58
through,
07:58
it's
07:58
not
07:58
going
07:58
to
07:58
pan
07:59
out,
07:59
you're
07:59
still
07:59
gonna
07:59
have
07:59
to
07:59
pay
08:00
court
08:00
fees.
08:01  Ben
Right.
08:01
Right.
08:02
Exactly.
08:03
And
08:03
so
08:03
then
08:04
becomes
08:04
the
08:04
question
08:05
of
08:05
when
08:06
is
08:06
individually
08:07
individuality
08:08
encouraged
08:09
and
08:09
should
08:10
individuality
08:11
be
08:11
discouraged?
08:12
And
08:12
is
08:12
that
08:12
why
08:13
the
08:13
system
08:13
that
08:13
we're
08:13
in
08:14
right
08:14
now
08:14
is
08:14
broken
08:15
to
08:15
the
08:15
degree
08:15
that
08:15
it
08:16
is?
08:17  Mat
Well,
08:18
if
08:18
everybody
08:18
was
08:19
an
08:19
entrepreneur
08:20
and
08:20
capable
08:21
of
08:21
free,
08:22
intelligent
08:22
thought
08:23
and
08:23
creativity,
08:24
then
08:24
we'd
08:24
have
08:24
a
08:24
much
08:25
different
08:25
world
08:25
than
08:26
it
08:26
probably
08:26
wouldn't
08:26
favor
08:27
a
08:27
few
08:27
people.
08:27
It
08:28
would
08:28
probably
08:28
favor
08:28
everyone.
08:30  Ben
And
08:30
so
08:30
is
08:30
that
08:30
the
08:30
challenge
08:31
that
08:31
it
08:32
favors
08:32
everyone
08:32
and
08:33
that's
08:33
why
08:33
people
08:33
don't
08:33
want
08:34
to
08:34
change.
08:35
Is
08:36
it
08:36
socialism?
08:37
Is
08:37
it
08:37
Darwinism?
08:38
Is
08:38
it,
08:39
what
08:39
is
08:39
it
08:39
that's
08:39
causing
08:40
us
08:40
to
08:41
be
08:41
like,
08:42
well,
08:42
we
08:42
prefer
08:43
it
08:43
this
08:43
way.
08:43
This
08:44
is,
08:44
this
08:44
is
08:44
what
08:44
we
08:44
want.
08:46  Mat
Well,
08:46
if
08:46
you
08:46
are
08:46
on
08:46
top
08:47
and
08:47
you
08:47
control
08:47
what
08:47
happens
08:48
from
08:48
that
08:48
perspective,
08:49
then
08:50
why
08:50
would
08:50
you
08:50
want
08:50
anything
08:51
else
08:51
to
08:51
happen?
08:52  Ben
What
08:52
I'm
08:53
trying
08:53
to
08:53
figure
08:53
out
08:53
though,
08:54
is
08:54
all
08:54
of
08:54
this
08:55
makes
08:55
logical
08:55
and
08:56
philosophical
08:56
and
08:57
theoretical
08:58
sense,
08:58
but
08:58
how
08:59
do
08:59
we
08:59
change
08:59
the
08:59
system?
09:01
We
09:01
can't,
09:02
we
09:02
can't
09:02
go
09:03
up
09:03
against
09:03
the
09:03
billionairs.
09:06  Mat
There's
09:06
a
09:06
really
09:07
big
09:07
issue
09:07
that
09:08
I
09:08
don't
09:08
know
09:08
as
09:08
though
09:09
we
09:09
really
09:09
have
09:09
a
09:09
workaround
09:10
for
09:10
as
09:11
humans
09:11
and
09:12
it's
09:12
everybody
09:12
knows
09:13
it.
09:13
And
09:13
it's
09:13
really,
09:14
really
09:14
simple.
09:14
We
09:14
don't
09:15
always
09:15
think
09:15
about
09:16
it,
09:16
but
09:16
imagine
09:17
whatever
09:17
you're
09:17
good
09:18
at,
09:18
it
09:18
doesn't
09:18
matter
09:18
what
09:18
that
09:19
job
09:19
is,
09:19
whatever
09:20
you're
09:20
really,
09:20
really
09:20
good
09:21
at,
09:21
you
09:21
know,
09:22
a
09:22
lot
09:22
more
09:22
about
09:23
that
09:23
situation
09:24
than
09:24
most
09:24
normal
09:24
people
09:25
do.
09:25
Right?
09:26
So
09:26
like,
09:27
you
09:27
know,
09:27
the
09:27
ups
09:28
and
09:28
downs
09:28
of
09:28
your
09:28
trade,
09:29
you
09:29
know,
09:29
what
09:29
works,
09:30
what
09:30
doesn't
09:30
work,
09:30
but
09:31
not
09:31
everybody
09:31
else
09:31
knows
09:32
that.
09:32
So
09:32
there's
09:32
a
09:32
degree
09:33
as
09:33
human
09:33
beings
09:34
for
09:34
us
09:34
to
09:35
be
09:35
able
09:35
to
09:35
take
09:35
a
09:35
situation,
09:36
simplify
09:37
it,
09:37
be
09:37
like,
09:37
why
09:37
can't
09:38
this
09:38
just
09:38
be
09:38
done?
09:38
Why
09:39
can't
09:39
we
09:39
just
09:39
do
09:39
this?
09:40
This
09:40
would
09:40
be
09:40
so
09:40
much
09:41
easier
09:41
if
09:41
we
09:41
could
09:41
just
09:42
do
09:42
this,
09:42
but
09:42
there's
09:42
so
09:43
many
09:43
factors
09:44
that
09:44
we
09:44
just
09:44
don't
09:45
understand
09:45
on
09:45
an
09:45
individual
09:46
basis.
09:46
And
09:46
that's
09:47
okay.
09:47
That's
09:47
why
09:47
we
09:48
have
09:49
that's
09:49
part
09:49
of
09:49
the
09:49
reason
09:50
why
09:50
we
09:50
have
09:50
a
09:50
system
09:51
that
09:52
is
09:52
based
09:52
off
09:52
of
09:52
specialists,
09:53
right?
09:54
So
09:55
we
09:55
have
09:55
specialists
09:55
that
09:56
are
09:56
really
09:56
good
09:56
at
09:56
these
09:56
things
09:57
and
09:57
they
09:57
help
09:57
drive
09:58
this
09:58
aspect
09:58
of
09:58
our
09:59
economy
09:59
or
09:59
our
09:59
social
10:00
structure
10:00
in
10:00
a
10:00
certain
10:01
direction.
10:02
But
10:02
then
10:02
the
10:03
information
10:03
that's
10:04
actually
10:04
put
10:05
out
10:05
there
10:05
what's
10:06
approved,
10:06
what's
10:06
not
10:07
approved.
10:07
That
10:08
can
10:08
be
10:08
controlled.
10:09
And
10:09
if
10:09
you
10:09
can
10:09
control
10:10
that,
10:10
then
10:11
you
10:11
can
10:11
control
10:11
how
10:11
the
10:12
system
10:12
is
10:12
steered
10:13
as
10:13
a
10:13
whole.
10:14
You
10:15
can't
10:15
control
10:15
the
10:15
experiments
10:16
that
10:16
the
10:16
specialist
10:17
or
10:17
the
10:17
scientists
10:18
or
10:18
the
10:19
practices
10:20
that
10:20
certain
10:20
people
10:20
are
10:21
doing
10:21
in
10:21
certain
10:21
areas,
10:21
but
10:22
you
10:22
can
10:22
make
10:22
laws,
10:23
you
10:23
can
10:23
make
10:24
jurisdictional
10:24
references,
10:26
you
10:26
can
10:26
create
10:26
court
10:26
cases
10:27
that
10:27
support
10:27
certain
10:28
things
10:28
over
10:28
different
10:29
things.
10:29  Ben
So
10:30
this
10:31
brings
10:31
me
10:31
into
10:31
an
10:31
interesting
10:32
reference
10:32
then
10:33
Kyle
10:34
Hill,
10:35
have
10:35
you
10:35
heard
10:35
of
10:35
him?
10:36  Mat
Potentially
10:37
I'm
10:37
bad
10:37
with
10:37
names.
10:38  Ben
He's
10:39
a
10:39
YouTuber,
10:40
looks
10:40
like
10:40
Thor.
10:41  Mat
Oh
10:41
yes.
10:43  Ben
Very
10:43
knowledgeable,
10:44
very
10:44
good
10:44
graphics.
10:45
And
10:45
as
10:45
YouTube
10:45
videos.
10:46
Yeah.
10:47
Anyway,
10:47
so
10:47
this
10:47
guy,
10:48
Kyle
10:48
Hill,
10:49
he
10:49
did
10:49
a
10:50
segment
10:51
on
10:51
info
10:52
hazards
10:52
and
10:53
I
10:54
never
10:54
really
10:54
considered
10:55
that
10:56
aspect
10:56
of
10:57
bringing
10:57
this
10:57
back
10:58
to.
10:59
What
10:59
people
10:59
learn
11:00
is
11:00
how
11:00
you
11:01
control
11:01
them.
11:02
I
11:02
never
11:02
considered
11:03
this,
11:03
but
11:04
info
11:04
hazards
11:05
can
11:05
be
11:05
as
11:06
simple
11:06
as
11:07
a
11:07
blanket
11:07
statement
11:08
about
11:08
how
11:09
nuclear
11:09
physics
11:10
works.
11:11
And
11:12
he
11:13
did
11:13
quite
11:13
some
11:14
interesting
11:14
thought
11:15
patterns
11:15
on
11:15
that.
11:16
Where
11:16
if
11:17
everybody
11:17
knew
11:17
these
11:18
things,
11:18
then
11:18
there
11:18
would
11:19
be
11:19
chaos.
11:20
If
11:21
you
11:21
knew
11:21
that
11:22
by
11:22
inserting
11:23
a
11:23
phrasiology
11:24
about
11:25
how
11:26
you
11:26
build
11:26
a
11:26
nuclear
11:27
bomb,
11:27
that
11:28
would
11:28
cause
11:29
challenges.
11:31  Mat
So
11:31
that,
11:31
that
11:32
plays
11:32
directly
11:32
off
11:33
of
11:33
cognitive
11:33
dissonance
11:35
as
11:35
human
11:35
beings.
11:35
So
11:36
whenever
11:37
what
11:37
we're
11:37
doing
11:38
is
11:38
in
11:38
stark
11:38
contrast
11:39
to
11:39
what
11:39
we
11:39
believe,
11:41
then
11:41
we
11:42
get
11:42
this
11:42
thing
11:42
called
11:43
cognitive
11:43
dissonance.
11:44
It's
11:44
a
11:44
very
11:44
uncomfortable
11:45
mental
11:45
state
11:46
mental
11:46
feeling,
11:47
and
11:47
we
11:47
try
11:47
to
11:47
do
11:47
everything
11:48
that
11:48
we
11:48
can
11:48
as
11:48
human
11:49
beings
11:49
to
11:49
stop
11:50
that
11:50
from
11:50
happening,
11:51
whether
11:51
consciously
11:52
or
11:52
unconsciously.
11:53
We'll
11:54
fight
11:54
something
11:55
mentally,
11:56
verbally,
11:57
whatever,
11:57
if
11:57
necessary,
11:58
to
11:58
make
11:58
sure
11:58
that
11:58
we're
11:58
in
11:59
a
11:59
position
11:59
where
11:59
we're
11:59
not
11:59
feeling
12:00
cognitive
12:00
dissonance.
12:01
And
12:02
one
12:02
of
12:02
the
12:02
struggles
12:02
with
12:02
that
12:03
is
12:03
that
12:03
if
12:03
you're
12:03
told
12:04
information
12:04
enough,
12:05
you'll
12:05
start
12:05
to
12:05
believe
12:06
it.
12:06
So
12:07
if
12:07
you're
12:07
just
12:07
force
12:08
fed,
12:08
this
12:08
is
12:08
what
12:09
the
12:09
truth
12:09
is.
12:09
This
12:09
is
12:09
what
12:10
the
12:10
truth
12:10
is.
12:10
This
12:10
is
12:11
what
12:11
the
12:11
truth
12:11
is.
12:12
Eventually
12:13
you're
12:13
going
12:13
to
12:13
have
12:13
an
12:14
inclination
12:14
to
12:14
believe
12:15
that
12:15
that's
12:15
what
12:15
the
12:15
truth
12:15
is.
12:16
If
12:16
you
12:16
don't
12:16
have
12:16
any
12:17
information
12:17
that
12:17
tells
12:18
you
12:18
otherwise.
12:19
So
12:19
if
12:19
you're
12:19
presented
12:20
with
12:20
new
12:20
information,
12:20
that
12:21
goes
12:21
against
12:21
what
12:22
you've
12:22
been
12:22
pre-programmed
12:23
to
12:23
believe
12:24
you're
12:24
going
12:24
to
12:24
have
12:24
an
12:25
instant
12:25
conflict
12:26
with
12:26
cognitive
12:26
dissonance,
12:27
and
12:27
you're
12:27
going
12:27
to
12:28
choose
12:28
to
12:28
fight,
12:28
to
12:29
save
12:29
the
12:29
system.
12:30
That's
12:30
actually
12:31
giving
12:31
you
12:31
that
12:31
cognitive
12:32
dissonance
12:32
opposed
12:33
to
12:33
coming
12:33
to
12:33
the
12:33
truth.
12:34  Ben
And
12:34
that
12:35
then
12:35
becomes
12:36
when
12:36
do
12:36
we
12:36
adopt
12:37
new
12:37
technology?
12:38
You
12:38
can
12:38
apply
12:38
that
12:39
to
12:39
basic
12:39
everyday
12:40
life.
12:40
When
12:40
do
12:40
you
12:40
change
12:41
the
12:41
oil
12:41
in
12:41
your
12:42
car?
12:42
When
12:42
do
12:42
you
12:42
change
12:43
to
12:43
a
12:43
new
12:43
car?
12:44
Do
12:45
you
12:45
change
12:45
to
12:46
a
12:46
new
12:46
car
12:46
because
12:47
your
12:47
current
12:47
car
12:48
has
12:48
one
12:48
challenge
12:49
or.
12:50
Do
12:50
you
12:50
want
12:51
to
12:51
change
12:51
from
12:51
the
12:51
old
12:52
reliable
12:52
vehicle
12:53
to
12:53
a
12:53
potentially
12:53
new
12:54
unstable
12:55
vehicle?
12:56
Now
12:56
that
12:56
probably
12:57
doesn't
12:57
apply
12:57
to
12:57
very
12:57
many
12:58
people,
12:58
but
12:58
I
12:59
buy
12:59
used
12:59
vehicles
13:00
and
13:00
I
13:00
pay
13:00
cash
13:00
for
13:00
all
13:00
my
13:01
vehicles.
13:01
So
13:02
that
13:02
definitely
13:03
applies
13:03
in
13:04
my
13:04
life.
13:06  Mat
You
13:06
can
13:06
see
13:06
that
13:06
with
13:06
appliances
13:07
too,
13:07
if
13:07
you
13:07
want
13:08
to
13:08
go
13:08
that
13:08
route,
13:08
opposed
13:09
to
13:09
like,
13:09
you
13:09
know,
13:10
information,
13:11
education,
13:11
if
13:11
you
13:11
wanted
13:12
to
13:12
go
13:13
the
13:13
route
13:13
of
13:13
like
13:13
appliances
13:14
or
13:14
hardware,
13:15
you
13:16
can
13:16
look
13:16
at
13:16
older
13:16
hardware
13:17
stuff
13:17
that's,
13:18
you
13:18
know,
13:18
made
13:18
back
13:18
in
13:18
the
13:18
fifties
13:19
or
13:19
sixties
13:19
is
13:20
tanks.
13:20
Like
13:20
they've
13:20
been
13:21
around
13:21
forever
13:22
older
13:23
vehicles,
