I'd need a more robust study than asking 15 highschoolers, the replication crisis is built on the back of badly conceived experiments.

Excellent point, I think they did do a deep dive on this and this was a quick abbr video on it, but I'll double check to make sure. Good catch.

TLDW: We lie mostly not because we're "bad"/immoral, but because our consciousness is asleep. Less judging and more wake up calling is most effective ( please be honest, tell me what happened ).

Smoke, by Dan Vyleta

Very enjoyable. The setting is an alternate Victorian England, with some strange metaphysics involving the physical manifestation of good and evil. Recommended.

The Legend of Bagger Vance - Steven Pressfield (3)

Very impressed by it but I think that's mostly because I was once hit and miss with perennial philosophy and I've resumed being an avid and terrible golfer in the past half decade. I've been convinced in the past two years that everyone needs to find and read at least a handful of Pressfield's books in their lifetimes though, even if I don't necessarily agree with his underlying esoterics.

Yeah, The Outside turned out decently.  I think they did, ultimately, fail to capitalize on how good the first couple episodes were, but the show was still entertaining.

Right now HBO has Westworld and The Plot Against America.  Both first episodes were pretty decent to us.
