In this amazing thought experiment, Alan Watts proposes that if you were God, with all the power in the universe at your disposal, you would eventually get tired of fulfilling all of your greatest fantasies and eventually choose to forget that you are God, in order to experience the amazing gift of Life as if for the very first time. If you were God, you would want to be surprised. And the life you are living — right now — is that surprise.

This is an episode of Stefan Molyneux’s Freedomain Radio, in which he gives probably the single greatest answer ever to the most common complaint you will inevitably hear from a modern, educated, working person.
WIM HOF “Iceman” Method: He’s nicknamed “The Iceman” for his ability to withstand extreme cold which he assigns to exposure to cold, meditation and breathing techniques. Hof has set out to spread the potential health benefits of his breathing techniques, working closely with scientists around the world to prove that the Wim Hof Method works. It is thought from current studies that by consciously hyperventilating Wim can increase his heart rate, adrenalin levels and blood alkalinity.
✔ Warning: The breathing exercise has a profound effect and should be practiced in the way it is explained. Always do the breathing exercise in a safe environment (e.g. sitting on a couch/floor) and unforced. Never practice the exercises before or during diving, driving, swimming, taking a bath or in any other environment/place where, should you pass out, a serious injury could occur. Wim Hof breathing may cause tingling sensations and/or lightheadedness. If you’ve fainted, it means that you went to far. Take a step back next time.The cold is a powerful force. We strongly advise to gradually build up exposing yourself to the cold. Always train without force and listen to your body carefully. If it is not practiced responsible, there is a risk of hypothermia. Do not practice the method during pregnancy or when having epilepsy. Persons with cardiovascular health issues, or any other (serious) health conditions, should always consult a medical doctor before starting with the Wim Hof Method.
