• tca300: I understand this is off topic from what you typically teach, but I was wondering if you have run across any information or learned on your own, things that help people grieve over lost loved ones, and or fear of losing others to death? Thank you!

    Ray Peat: It activates the “helplessness” reactions in the body, stress weakening your own life, and I think it can help to get out of that if you think of your life as a continuation of theirs—the same life, though with fewer bodies.

    Why YOU Need To Grow Up

    Nothing is more dangerous to our society than men who never grow up. Men who are still at home at 25 and spend more time in Fortnite than in their future, than in their skills, than in their work. Nothing good comes from men who don't grow up. You sit on your phone and watch one stupid YT...
