Some Blade Runner-inspired contemplation music:
I got a new 4K TV recently — Samsung's 75" The Frame — after living without a TV for 7 years. I mostly got it to display HD art, but I figured since I have it I might as well watch some films in HD. So I watched Blade Runner 2049. The TV's design is exceptional, BTW. Truly a work of art. But anyhow...
Blader Runner's story isn't so great, but such beautiful world-building and jaw-dropping cinematography. The best part of the film was K's relationship with Joi. I wish they fleshed that out a lot more rather than focusing on the lame replicants. This scene in 4K is just a work of art:
I watched this scene on 5-MeO-MALT and it blew my fucking mind.
"I want to be real for you."
What a line! What a genius scene.
Adam Savage, of Mythbusters fame, was a prop-master in Hollywood for 20 years. I like him as an example of how to find a very unique niche / purpose in life. Hope this inspires you to find yours:
Imagine prop-master & tinkerer as your life purpose? Wow!
He has a cool YT channel too. Check it out. He seems so happy in his niche. It fits him like a glove.
A brilliant opening scene. They don't make 'em like this anymore:
"You see thee snake, Billy? The ultimate evil."

On a serious note, What is the weapon against evil?
This is a powerful resource for those of you who have trauma to heal. Here's how you heal all trauma in a nutshell:
It's worth watching this entire series as it can transform your life.

Again, trauma healing is not the focus of Actualized.org, but if you got trauma to heal — and many people do — you should address it because it will hold you back from accessing the advanced stages of development that Actualized.org is focused on.
You might wonder, "But Leo, if trauma is so common and so important, how come you don't cover it more?", to which the answer is simply: I'm interested in higher things. Curing world hunger is also important for self-actualization — it's hard to self-actualize when you're hungry — but I'm not interested in that. That's someone else's domain. Actualized.org is not supposed to solve every problem in your life. Be careful if you expect that.
This is an excellent piece of journalism which showcases how corruption works and why Russian political influence is so toxic around the world:
As you can probably tell, I'm extremely fascinated by the topic of corruption. That's because studying it reveals deep insights into the nature of self-deception, selfishness, bias, truth, etc.
Corruption is such a challenging problem to fix because its roots are metaphysical and epistemological, and people don't appreciate that enough.
Also connect this with my video What Is The Devil? This is a prime example of devilry. Contemplate how easily you and your friends are corrupted in your own life.
As much as I despise JP's politics, this interview of his is apolitical, outstanding, and worthwhile to watch. Even though it seems technical in nature, it actually offers some profound insights into personality types, life purpose, and just dealing with successful & intelligent people.
I'm sick of first person shooters, but this is the most imaginative shooter I've seen in a decade. Straight out of a nightmare:
Pop a gram of mushrooms and play this alone at night with the lights off ;)
This is what it's like to Awaken:
When I was a kid, this was my favorite Simpson's episode. I studied every green math equation floating in the 3rd Dimension to make sense of what they meant.
So many subtle easter-eggs in this episode if you're a 90's nerd. I combed through every single one of them. And this was before being a nerd was cool.
P.S. All great art is just a reflection of God's infinity beauty and intelligence. The better the reflection, the greater the art. So now you understand the whole secret to art, and all it took was reading this measly blog post ;)
