"The entire history of evolution of organisms is associated with profound changes in mechanisms of their energy supply..."
01:55 - "Le Chatelier's principle, that a system adjusts in ways which restore a disturbed equilibrium, is behind this idea. Every part of the flow can be seen as a disequilibrium, and the complexification of the structure tends to absorb the disturbing energy." Ray Peat
02:03 - Györgyi Csaba. The biological basis and clinical significance of hormonal imprinting, an epigenetic process. Clin Epigenetics. 2011 Aug;2(2):187-96.

16:16 - Adam Kokesh debates Webster Tarpley at Occupy Bilderberg 2012 (https://bit.ly/2IbprJl)
17:56 - James Gilligan. Violence: Reflections on a national epidemic. New York:Vintage Books (1997) “[I]ncreased rates of death and disability [are] suffered by those who occupy the bottom rungs of society, as contrasted with the relatively lower death rates experienced by those who are above them. Those excess deaths... are a function of class structure; and that structure is a product of [society’s] collective human choices, concerning how to distribute the collective wealth of society."
19:17 - Is violence sometimes necessary?
19:30 - "Our only hope today lies in our ability to recapture the revolutionary spirit and go out into a sometimes hostile world declaring eternal hostility to poverty, racism, and militarism." "A nation that continues year after year to spend more money on military defense than on programs of social uplift is approaching spiritual death." MLK
20:10 - Györgyi Csaba. The biological basis and clinical significance of hormonal imprinting, an epigenetic process. Clin Epigenetics. 2011 Aug;2(2):187-96. "In the case of hormonal imprinting, the first encounter between a hormone and its developing target cell receptor-usually at the perinatal period-determines the normal receptor-hormone connection for life." "The absence of the normal or the presence of false hormonal imprinting predispose to or manifested in different diseases (e.g., malignant tumors, metabolic syndrome) long after the time of imprinting or in the progenies."
21:57 - Ray's thoughts on "erasing" an imprint and maintaining euphoria
23:26 - Is there "new" element in the environment that Ray is very concerned with (e.g., water, air, EMF)?
24:44 - "Nothing is stored, it's like the pasts are all present in the same room, and we periodically have a different perspective on them. When the present balance of stuff, toxicants, euphoriants, etc., is good, you can think and feel what you want to about things." Ray Peat
26:22 - Dr. Gabor Maté Interview with Tim Ferriss (https://bit.ly/2IeUgNx)
27:01 - Ernest Schachtel. Metamorphosis: On the development of affect, perception, attention, and memory. 1959. "The drive to seek out and explore the new is strongest in the childhood of animals and men, in the period of exploratory play." "As they mature we see in the higher mammals and in most men a slackening or ceasing of curiosity, fascination, playful exploration, excitement, enthusiasm: the "open" world has now turned into a variety of objects with signal qualities, or into objects-of-use to which certain adaptive responses are given."
30:00 - “Gardening, learning to play a musical instrument, sculpting and drawing, are good; practicing the marital arts, going to new places and taking different routes to old places, listening to an unfamiliar language anything that involves participation and action or learning.” Ray Peat

38:15 - "...The mystiques of schooling, medicine, and legal services are part of the system of control and exploitation that can be painlessly dissolved." Ray Peat (https://bit.ly/2GUUYA8)
38:41 - “School prepares for the alienating institutionalization of life by teaching the need to be taught. Once this lesson is learned, people lose their incentive to grow in independence.” Ivan Illich
41:35 - “In evolution, the tendency toward dominance of the head (cephalization) in animals overlaps with another tendency (known in plants too) called juvenilization, pedomorphism, or neoteny, in which an early stage of the organism’s development, the juvenile stage is preserved for longer periods in the descendants, eventually becoming the normal adult type. Baby apes resemble humans, in body proportions and behaviour, much more than the adult apes do. The infant represents our evolutionary future.” Ray Peat
42:43 - M.I. Budyko. The Evolution of The Biosphere. 1984 "Aromorphosis: The existence of living organisms is possible only if they are provided by energy influx from the environment." "The entire history of evolution of organisms is associated with profound changes in mechanisms of their energy supply..."
44:44 - Ashley Montagu. The Natural Superiority of Women. 1905 "The adult human skull preserves the promise of the infant human skull very much more than does the adult gorilla the promise of the infant gorilla skull. In other words, the adult human being is an infantilized or pedomorphic type, a type which has evolved by preserving some ancestral youthful characteristics; the adult gorillais an aged or gerontomorphic type, a type that has undergone evolutionary change as the result of the accentuated development of already adult traits."
