A Tier 2 Conversation

By Leo Gura - February 27, 2021

Listen to the following conversation and notice how different it feels compared to the typical sort of conversations you hear online, on social media, in the news, on TV, on podcasts, etc.

This is a Spiral Dynamics Tier 2 conversation. Notice its qualities of: selflessness, self-awareness, meta-ness, nuance, radical openmindedness, non-ideology, non-judgment, wisdom, non-survival-needs-oriented, etc.

Now imagine what you would have to change about yourself in order to hold this kind of conversation. Notice what personal survival needs and biases are holding you back from engaging in a conversation like this.

Notice that how you see mankind operating in most media, TV shows, news, political commentary, etc. is more animal-like than fully human. Humans are capable of a much higher kind of operation. When 99% of what you see in the media is mankind behaving like animals, it becomes hard to imagine that something higher is possible — but it is.

Really contemplate what this kind of conversation demonstrates about yourself and mankind at large. What would it take to get you to stop behaving and conversing like an animal?
