Robert says:

Andrew says:

That could be rap song

Brian says:

Notice, when we play a musical instrument, that’s not full of shit?

Mayur says:

Leo talks shit.

Recontextualization – the shit is really deep

So if language is full of shit your full of shit and im especially full of shit does that mean (human) language COULD literally create reality?!

I love the map analogy you use at the end of the clip – That really worked for me to explain what you are doing in I also love and salute how personal and direct and (as far as I can tell) nakedly honest you make your videos – and have delighted in watching over time (in somewhat condensed form – I only came upon the site fairly recently) how your interpretations morph over time and the resutant changes in opinion. This really works with the map idea – topo map with some crossings out and changes to landforms (after a couple of earthquakes a few landmarks have toppled and river changed course).
self inquiry using a rane of lenses, perspectives and maps.

Yourvedeo on Dereeda is superb.I came to know more about Dereeda in Your vedeo.Do You believe even Dereeda and Deconstruction is bullshit?

Eerik says:

Took me around 6 minutes of the list when I got the insight directly. After all, thinking works in analogies and Leo brought out so many of them that it showed to the self what it is. It was like an honest mirror into the existence of the self. That was a fabulous exercise to create an epiphany.

Shahar says:

I watched that video in the morning and stopped after 40 min because I couldn’t really grasp it fully. Then I went through the day and suddenly noticed all the mountains of bullshit in society and in my own ego and only then I understood what Leo was talking about. Came back in the evening to see the rest of the video and then watched it again and only then I really understood.

Max Gron says:

I know mankind is the bullshitting animal, but the beliefs of cats and dogs are still bullshit. A scared dog is full of shit, a disobedient dog is full of shit. Animals get bullshit from the fact that people bullshit. Even your beliefs are bullshit, there’s no real truth in a person’s or animal’s beliefs. Ants don’t do bullshit but the morals of a cat and dog are bullshit.
