In this episode of t podcast, Sam Harris speaks with Peter Attia about meditation and the nature of mind. They discuss types of meditation, the difference between pain and suffering, the difference between joy and wellbeing, the half-life of negative emotions, thinking and dreaming, the power of culture, the power of language, letting go of anger, MDMA, loving one’s enemies, moral luck, the ethics of lying, and other topics.
This thread is for listeners’ comments.
This was a very useful podcast because I seem to be pretty similar in nature to Peter Attia and it was like getting to have a conversation with Sam with questions I would have and also have solutions tried out with some success from someone who has similar tendencies, dislikes, etc. (The whole complex question boiled down to a bullet point also makes me crazy.) Very enjoyable and helpful.
