nevermind don’t get help they need.. get more oppression.. self-perpetuating cycle of taking traumatized people and re traumatizing them.. they won’t give it up.. the more hurt they are the more they need to escape..

which addict causes more problems in the world..

deepest reason – denial of pain

aboriginal population suffer most from addition – under colonialism.. benign wings of british empire.. aboriginals displaced.. culture destroyed.. self-image transformed into negative.. and to deal with that..

we’d have to look at ourselves..

we don’t like the trauma story.. in the terrorist story we get to be victims..(then goes on to show.. we created terrorists..).. do we really understand the source.. what has been our role

brian: is it possible to reduce trauma

brian.. a nother way

gabor: how you do that.. start reducing stress/trauma at first pre natal visit.. by not medicalizing birth.. by supporting young parents to be with their children..

brian: so we have to up our humanity by 10x

let’s try 7 bn x.. we can

addiction showed up in late 18th cent.. because loss of communes

bruce alexander – globalization of addiction.. when people lose their place.. lose connection to culture/meaning/spiritual values.. more dislocation greater addiction..

the more sensitive the child is.. the more affected

if we’re going to become whole (healing) let’s look at everything

there’s no war on drugs.. there’s a war on drug addicts.. not even on drug dealers..

human infant is an attachment machine.. can’t survive w/o it.. so take care of attachment relationship with children at any age.. infants can teach you about it if you really listen..

a and a..

acting out: portraying in behavior what you don’t have words for

usually it has to do with some trouble aspect with attachment

trauma fundamentally comes down to lack of attachment.. not lack of love.. but lack of attuning..

people who inspire me.. people who struggle and learn something from it and share with the world..

i’m also looking for a deeper inner healing.. i’m not where i want to be

to 20 yr old self: not your fault the way you/world is.. don’t work so hard to be liked.. you’re ok..

best advise: to thine own self be true.. from aunt – i wish i’d understood what that meant

there’s a lot of people out there that see the truth but they don’t control the media.. so not much validation.. you have to deepen your truth.. never be afraid of your own truth.. and.. never be afraid to let go of it.. if you find a deeper truth.. whatever you do out in the world.. do an equal amount internally..


douglas rushkoff on london real – with Brian


all we have is attention


as if efficiency really is the goal.. if we really want efficiency.. just get rid of the humans all together..


i think the turning point is redefining econ system.. ie: twitter as successful

present shock.. constant now now now .. and you feel that you need to catch up

drone pilot more ptsd – because breaking up into pieces.. and parallel processing.. that’s a computer thing.. people can’t do that..

1\ living in a sense of perpetual emergency interruption.. so do tech in your own time

2\ go out side enough to at least look at the moon

i don’t think there’s any effort by western nations to stop this (terrorism).. the allegiances are too strange.. deals w govts et al.. i don’t think we’re genuinely focused on that problem

12 yr old – have skin in game.. and became harder for me to make money w/o selling out… so i do yoga as my practice..

there’s nothing to work towards.. it’s happening right now.. we live in such a carrot and stick society.. it’s right now.. your integrity is in the moment.. there’s infinity in the moment if you can embrace this as that instead of a step..
