Multiple Selves Without a Central Self | Jordan Gruber ~ ATTMind 168

Adventures Through The Mind

Jordan Gruber is one of the authors of "Your Symphony Of Selves" and joins us to discuss how we all have multiple selves, not a single self. Some of the topics we explore in this episode include an in-depth look at The Health Selves Model in comparison and contrast to The Single Self Assumption; why we mistakenly assume multiple selves to be pathological; how mental health is being in the right mind (self/selves) as the right time; and how we can start applying the healthy selves model into our lives today. We also talk about Monotheism's influence on the single self assumption—“the single god assumption”; how Buddishm's noself and interdependence relates to multiple selves; the difference between multiple selves and Jungian archetypes/autonomous complexes; how Sigmund Freud helped The Single Self Assumption dominate the western mind; and how the very origins of Freud's model of the mind might be in the gaslighting of sexual abuse. Furthermore, we also explore psychedelic journeying and healing from a healthy selves model; how we might understand the effects of psychedelics on the ego, if there is no such thing as an ego; as well as all of reality being fractal iterations of various wholistic expressions of cosmic multiplicity while debating the validity of The Essential Self, Self Energy, and our ability to live in relationship to “Ultimate Reality”. And, of course, more. Enjoy. ...

I could not get it off yesterday. . . . . An abridgement by selection with some good picture-work would be pleasant, & perhaps worth a good deal in publicity; but the present script is rather a compression with resultant over-crowding and confusion, blurring of climaxes, and general degradation: a pull-back towards more conventional ‘fairy-stories'.

Synopsis On today's date in 1862, Giuseppe Verdi's opera La Forza del Destino or The Force of Destiny had its premiere at the Imperial Theater in St. Petersburg, Russia. Verdi and his wife, Giuseppina, were present for the opening night. We're not sure what the outdoor temperature was in St. Petersburg that November evening, but it was something that the Verdis carefully considered before agreeing to attend. Responding to a friend's letter describing a Russian winter, Giuseppina wrote: “If I were not afraid of committing forgery, I would alter that imposing figure of 22 below zero which will make Verdi open his eyes wide in fright… As for myself, I took refuge under the stove… In any case, I shall try and persuade him to expose his nose to the danger of freezing in Russia.” Perhaps in artistic compensation, the story of Forza is set in sultry Spain—and after the premiere in St. Petersburg, the Verdis did indeed set off for warmer climates of Rome and Madrid, where the new opera was to have its next performances. In the early years of the 20th century, La Forza del Destino—like most of Verdi's works—was seldom staged, but in the 1920s it was successfully revived, and its overture has become a concert hall favorite.

Tonight, we'll read another excerpt from French writer Marcel Proust's monumental “In Search of Lost Time” which is seven volumes long, and first published in 1913. “In Search of Lost Time” follows the narrator's recollections and experiences in the late 19th-century and early 20th-century high-society France, while reflecting on the loss of time and lack of meaning in the world. This series does not necessarily need to be followed in order. Rather than being plot driven, it is more of a meditation on memories, consciousness and ambiance. The first episode aired on May 9th, 2022, and is titled “Overture.” The second episode, “The Magic Lantern” aired on July 11, 2022. The third episode, “M. Swann” aired on September 12, 2022. A madeleine de Proust is an expression used to describe smells, tastes, sounds or any sensations reminding you of your childhood or simply bringing back emotional memories from a long time ago.  — read by V — Support us: Listen ad-free on Patreon Get Snoozecast merch like cozy sweatshirts and accessories Learn more about your ad choices.

The book chronicles the amazing story of two English sisters – both opera buffs and spinsters -- who mastermind a daring plan to rescue Jewish opera stars in Germany and Austria from the Nazis and get them to safety in England. Isabel, an award-winning investigative journalist for the New York Post, is the author of Overture of Hope: Two Sisters' Daring Plan That Saved Opera's Jewish Stars from the Third Reich. The book, which has been described as “Schindler's List Meets the Sound of Music” was published in September. In addition, Isabel's account of the Swiss bank accounts left dormant after the Nazi era, Hitler's Silent Partners, won the Yad Vashem Award for Holocaust History. She is also the author of the bestselling memoir, Dinner with Edward as well as three other books. A native of Canada, Isabel covered South American drug cartels for the Globe and Mail and later reported on conflicts in Kosovo and the civil war in Angola.

@martinvars El comienzo de mi vida fue bastante difícil, muy triste, porque nos tuvimos que escapar a Estados Unidos como refugiados. Eso también me definió como una persona muy ambivalente con Argentina. Cuando murió mi papá pensé «esto no va para ningún lado, necesito hacer guita». Heredé más deudas que plata. Dije: voy a emprender para hacer plata y avanzar con mis estudios académicos. EinsteinNet fue la primera empresa de Cloud Computing de Europa. La vendí por €1 y a los pocos años el Cloud despegó. Ahí perdí €50MM y la plata de mis inversores. Una empresa exitosa es aquella donde vas saltando de un quilombo a otro, y un día se vende y no lo podés creer. ¿Pero cómo se vendió por toda esta plata si lo único que yo veía eran quilombos? Nunca me equivoqué con las tecnologías, sino con el timing. En casi todas las empresas yo soy el CEO y fundador, y después encuentro a alguien que me reemplace para pasar a ser Chairman. A veces soy CEO de dos al mismo tiempo, pero no más. En general mis empresas tienen algo que ver con algo que me pasó a mí. Es algo más personal: de repente no puedo vivir si no hago esa empresa. No sé [por qué no hay tantas mujeres en el mundo emprendedor], pero sí creo que hay algo de discriminación por parte de los inversores y por parte de la sociedad. A los inversores les explico que en dos años me voy a «echar» de mis empresas, y de hecho lo pongo en el contrato. La reunión con Steve Jobs fue muy rara, muy extensa, de 90 minutos. Me citó porque quería entender qué era Fon porque él sentía que tenía un producto –el iPhone– que no andaba muy bien porque no tenía buen ancho de banda. La reunión con Steve Jobs fue con muchísima animosidad, en persona era increíblemente difícil. Lo primero que me dijo cuando me vio fue «vamos a hacer Fon sin vos». Fueron 90 minutos de pelea, dos veces me levanté para irme. Ya nacieron 100 mil bebés gracias a Prelude Fertility. Me parece que la energía nuclear es una gran oportunidad. Soy un cryptoescéptico. No le veo el potencial que los demás le ven. Para la Argentina sé que tiene sentido porque el peso es un fracaso, pero el dólar y el euro son grandes monedas y los pagos electrónicos funcionan increíbles. Es algo exagerado. La gente se llegó a obsesionar con el cambio climático (que es real y nos causa problemas) pero no es el único problema medioambiental, y monopolizó el discurso. Hago trabajo remoto mucho antes del comienzo del Covid. Voy a mi oficina fuera de mi casa sólo cuando mis hijos están en el cole, si no me quedo en la oficina de casa. Nadie se muere diciendo «por qué no pasé más tiempo en la oficina». Antes viajaba 1/4 de mi tiempo, ahora viajo 1/10. https://twitter.com/ETPA_Spaces/status/1579200994596253696?s=20&t=bTDaun3l5qKGTLIBZx0SgA

Synopsis 1991 was a big year for American composer John Corigliano. The Metropolitan Opera premiered his opera “The Ghosts of Versailles” and the 53-year old composer won two Grammys and the Grawemeyer Award for his Symphony No. 1. Corigliano was increasingly recognized as one of the leading American composers of his generation, and was deluged with commissions for new works. But about 10 years before all that, guitarist Sharon Isbin had asked Corigliano to write a concerto for her, and kept on asking him. On today's date in 1993, her persistence paid off when, with the St. Paul Chamber Orchestra and conductor Hugh Wolff, she gave the premiere performance of Corigliano's “Troubadours — Variations for Guitar and Orchestra.” This piece was inspired by the courtly love tradition of the medieval troubadours, whose songs combined sophisticated word play with simple but elegantly communicative melodies. “For composers the idea of true simplicity — in contrast to chic simple-mindedness — is mistrusted and scorned,” wrote Corigliano. “But the guitar has a natural innocence about it… So the idea of a guitar concerto was, for me, like a nostalgic return to all the feelings I had when I started composing — before the commissions and deadlines and reviews. A time when discovery and optimistic enthusiasm ruled my senses… Troubadours is a lyrical concerto.” Music Played in Today's Program John Corigliano (b. 1938) Troubadours Sharon Isbin, guitar; Saint Paul Chamber Orchestra; Hugh Wolff, cond.

Tonight, we'll read “M. Swann” the next part in our series from French writer Marcel Proust's monumental “In Search of Lost Time” which is seven volumes long, and first published in 1913. “In Search of Lost Time” follows the narrator's recollections and experiences in the late 19th-century and early 20th-century high-society France, while reflecting on the loss of time and lack of meaning in the world. This series does not necessarily need to be followed in order as rather than being plot driven, it is more of a meditation on memories, consciousness and ambiance.

Our director series continues this week with a film steeped in Hollywood lore while being utterly disdainful of its treatment of actors. It's a near masterpiece, but as we talk through it, it's Billy Wilder's directing that shines a bit more than his writing. Still, even the last 5 minutes of this film are enough to etch it as an instant classic, and the first two hours are pretty great as well. Equal parts dark comedy, thriller, and anti-romance, this movie defies description and style at numerous turns, and garnered 11 Oscar nominations in a year that is one of the best movies have ever seen.

What's up! It's episode 95 of Payne Points of Wealth and FED chairman J. Powell has ruined everything! Just two weeks ago before recording this podcast, J Powell came out and basically said that the FED was going to continue to be hawkish with their monetary policy, and markets sold off precipitously. Is this the end? Is the punch bowl going away? Is the economy ruined? Well, we're going to talk about that on our podcast today, we're going to give you our viewpoint. And we're going to talk about critical questions you need to ask yourself if you're putting together your financial independence plan. You will want to hear this episode if you are interested in... How a great portfolio is like a great rental property? [2:22] Bulls or bears…it depends on the wind [4:43] Don't double down on tech [6:58] The Tipping Point [11:56] Do people really spend less when they retire? [13:08] How will you fill the income gap? [15:43] Do you know what you own and how are your finances organized? [19:11] Hidden Facts of Finance [23:07] Keep your portfolio because the rents are going up! That eight-minute speech that J Powell gave certainly sent our clients into a tailspin. I was talking to a client last week and he asked if this was time to sell out of his portfolio. Of course not! The value of your house probably went down 10-15% in the last few months, are you selling that? Of course, the answer's no.  Owning a great portfolio is a lot like owning a rental property. With the dividends and interest, it pays you're going to collect rent until the market goes back up. Under our e-money portal, you can even pull in the value of your real estate from Zillow, so it's updated in real-time.  One client I spoke with has a lot of rental properties. He said that they were at all-time record highs and now they're down like 15% in some cases. I said well, why don't you panic out and sell? He said, why would I do that? I'm still collecting my rent and guess what I'm going to do next year? Raise it.  That's kind of how it works with the stock market. Stocks pay dividends. We just had global dividends hit an all-time record high at $545 billion. Think about that. We have increased dividends to the highest level ever and they're going to go up again next year!  This week on the tipping point: Critical questions We thought today we could talk about certain questions that you really want to ask yourself to make sure that you're on track to what we call that proverbial financial independence. We covered some critical questions that everyone needs to answer to make sure that they're on their path. Will you really spend less in retirement? SPOILER ALERT...Probably not! Where will your income come from and how will you get it? Do you know what you own and more importantly WHY you own it? How are your finances organized? Can you generate enough returns that it keeps abreast of inflation? If you haven't asked yourself these questions in a while (or ever) then this is an episode you will want to listen to! Go check it out ASAP! This week's hidden facts of finance Small investors matter for Tesla. About 46% of shares available for trading are held by non-institutional investors. The comparable number for Google is only 15%. Small investors basically drive that stock. American airlines group is planning to buy up to 20 supersonic jets to speed up air travel. Boom Supersonic is developing an airplane called Overture, which is being designed to carry 65 to 80 passengers. American Airlines said that supersonic flights from Los Angeles to Honolulu would take only three hours or as little as half the time of a standard jet.

This week we have three features provided by our listeners. Scott Hawk has thoughts on why CDs were considered superior to albums in the early 80s. John Lyman compares Records vs Airplay and Digital lossless and Tim Klevar reviews the Airfly Bluetooth dongle and the Sony Mark V headphones. Plus we have listener emails and news.  NBC Could Give Third Hour Of Nightly Primetime Back To Local Affiliates Samsung, Prime Video to Offer 8K Content From ‘The Lord of the Rings: The Rings of Power' Report: Budget-friendly Samsung displays on the horizon CD's Were Universally Recognized as Superior to Albums in the 1980s By Scott Hawk Back in 1985, cassettes were outselling records and you probably remember how terrible they were.  Cheap housings made them wobbly inside your player. Cheap tape material gunked up the heads and reels of your cassette deck with soot. They used Dolby B or no noise reduction. All this got worse if you kept them in your car.  For many people, records were not much better. Few people cleaned their records so pops, hisses and cracks were common. Plus, the record undergoes wear with each play since the needle is physically touching the grooves.  Plus, the stylus would also exhibit wear, reducing its ability to track the grooves on the record. A stylus starts off with a nice point but gets rounder over time.  So, play a record 300 times and the wear on the stylus and record obviously effects the sound quality. Most turntables were belt driven and the belts had been stretched, dried out or slipping which caused all sorts of wow & flutter.  Now, enter the CD. Even though CD players were at first expensive, within a few years all CD players sounded alike. Everyone who listened to music got an upgrade.  If you had a cassette tape, the new CD sounded amazing. And, if your tape was a few years old, the new CD sounded like it came from heaven.  If you had a worn out record playing on a worn out turntable, you also got a major sound upgrade.  And, if you listened to FM radio, you too got a huge sound upgrade.  Plus, they sounded great on the first play and the 300th. CDs were also indestructible compared to tapes and records.  No wonder everyone raved about digital music.   So, what happened since then? Today, getting a good music experience is much simpler. Any phone with even basic headphones stream good sounding music. And, nice sounding music can even come from a bluetooth speaker.  But to get music out of a turntable, you have to go through a process which has some attraction. It's certainly more of a process than using your phone. That process has some allure to it and the music will sound different. People can decide for themselves if something that sounds different is actually better. I think my own experience was not the most common. I was passionate about this as a kid.  I saved up to buy a fancy direct-drive turntable, with a floating suspension and a carbon fiber tonearm. I bought a Shure cartridge, installed it myself and adjusted the tonearm, tracking pressure and tracking angle. I'd buy a new album and play it twice … once to remove any manufacturing artifacts and then again to copy it to a Hi-Bias or Metal tape with Dolby C noise reduction. I splurged on a 3-head tape deck and cleaned it (and my records) religiously.  I'd only play the record again to replace the tape or make a mix tape.  I was very particular in getting the tape to sound as close to the record as I could.  So … a friend gets a CD player and loans it to me.  I go out and buy 2 CD's … Don Fagan's Nightfly and Dire Straits (first album).  Holy cow … it blew away my ears.  The highs on the cymbals were stunning. The dynamic range was astonishing.  The extra thump of the bass gives me chills to this day.  Even after all the effort I took to get the best sound, this new technology just ran the table. Record vs Airplay and Digital lossless a Listener's Test  By John Lyman With all the discussion I was curious about the difference in the following three formats: Streaming via AirPlay 2, USB to Amp streaming at highest rate vs a record. My setup for the test:   M1 iMac streaming to an Airport Express (Airplay 2)  - digital output into the receiver (10 Feet away) 2019 16” MacBook Pro connected to Amp using USB output set to 24 bit 192Khz  Pro-Ject Debut Carbon Evo Turntable - connected to a Cambridge Audio phono amp Amp is a Cambridge Audio CXA-81  Speakers are Wharfdale EVO 4.2  Sub is turned off and no EQ running Using Apple Music for digital content The songs I picked were  determined by the few albums I have and those that are brand new.  I also chose the first song on a side of the record so I was listening to the same thing from all sources.  I played about 1:30 minutes of the song. I went in the same order starting with streaming to Airplay, USB direct connect and then turntable. Songs used Elton John - Sweet Painted Lady (24 bit 44.1Khz  lossless from Apple)  Neil Young - Old Man (24 bit 196 Khz) Pink Floyd - Speak to Me/Breathe (24bit 96Khz) Overall I noticed the same thing  Airplay had the narrowest soundstage, was the brightest sounding of all, and the instruments did not stand out as much.  The horn on Sweet painted lady was not as pronounced.  In the chorus of Old Man where its a higher pitch and louder - the other instruments get lost.  Breathe you can't tell there are two voice at the beginning  USB Connection While Painted lady was at the same stream quality I could hear a difference. The soundstage was larger and I noticed a horn that I did not in the Airplay 2.  Old Man is where I really could hear the difference in the sound stage being a little wider and the instruments were clearer.  When they get to chorus its not as bright as the Airplay and I could easily make out the other instruments.  Breathe - I noticed there were at least two voices singing and again bigger soundstage  Album - WOW this blew me away on all three songs with a much warmer sound and clean.  Sweet Painted Lady had a great soundstage, the horn came out great along with the other instruments.  Old Man the chorus was not as high pitched as the others and I could make out more of the background singers. Speak to Me/Breathe - this is where I was blown away.  In the digital version the jump between Speak to me and Breath is very pronounced there is no ramp up to the louder music you just jump there.  On the album there was a ramp up and then the wall of music hit me.   Conclusion  I found that the higher bit rate/more information provided did create a better sound picture filling in the holes a little better because of the additional information.  I would also say the direct connection does make a difference as I noticed with Sweet Painted Lady.  However, with the majority of my listening being done during the work day or streaming around the house with a non-critical ear. I will continue to use Airplay 2 because it is easy.   However, for critical listening I will be using either a Mac hooked up directly or an Album with a good bourbon. Update  I wanted to send an update after this weekend.  I was reading an article about Open Core Legacy Patcher (OpenCore Legacy Patcher) that allows a person to install the latest Mac OS on older machines.  So I went through the process of updating my 2012 Mac mini that I use as media server.  This allowed me to load Monterey on that machine and take full advantage of Apple Music lossless on the machine and also Airplay to the machine from other devices.  I'm streaming the music over USB to my amp as it allows full 24/192 output (digital capped out at 24/96) when direct streaming.   I also received Supertramp's Even in the Quietest moments original album.  This album has a song called Fool's Overture that I have been using for speaker testing since the 90's. A great song because of so many instruments and changes really puts speakers through its paces. So I listened to this song from the album and again I noticed  a warmer and good sound stage. To me the bottom line is that both lossless and vinyl sound great for those dedicated music listening times.  The reason I believe those two give a better sound quality is similar to streaming vs a Blu-ray Disc the more information the better the end product will be and the better the sound stage.  Airfly & Sony Mark V A Listener's Review By Tim Klevar The Airfly is everything it promises to be. I bought the Duo and it allows two devices to connect. If you have cup phones and earpods, this or the Duo Pro is for you. There are two models of the Airfly: Duo and Pro. Both allow for two devices to connect. The Pro provides an “Aux in” function. The Duo is about $10 less expensive than the Pro, although neither are more than $55. Mostly, I think, cars and other things do not need this.  I bought the Duo. It works well, it is “elegant” in its design and function. It only has two buttons with dots. There is a single dot and double dot button used to connect and select the devices. Pressing either button connects to the device that was paired on that button. It charges via a USB-C port and has a USB-C to USB-A cable included. It is only about 6 inches long, but enough to get from an IFE USB to the AirFly. It is pretty cool.  The Sony Mark V headphones are everything they promise to be. I agree with Tom's and RTINGS analysis. While they do not come with aptX, they have the other main codecs, including LDAC. These seem to me to be better than the Bose 700's, which likely will not be upgraded until next year. On the other hand, the Mark V uses BT 5.2 and I was able to get about 40+ feet away from the source with no dropoff in quality or squeaks/pops. It was just as clear as when I was in the room. These work really well. They are not perfect. And pricey. But if you have the money, they are worth it. I believe it is better than the Bose 700s.  The noise canceling is super and the sound is excellent. I do not have one of the subscriptions to try the spatial 360 stuff. The ear cups fit nicely over my normal sized ears and provide a snug fit. There are only two buttons, one to power on and one to change the noise canceling levels, of which there are about 6 or 7. I have not yet been on a plane to see about engine noise, but around the house, it is a “dark” zone when I have these on. However, I notice that sometimes when I laugh or move my jaws just so, it pauses the video/audio stream and I have to double-tap the right cup to play again (I watch one or two episodes of Hogan's Heroes or Bob Newhart to relax my mind before I go to bed). It is still pretty cool that when I take them off, the stream pauses and then resumes when I put them back on.   The connection via BT was clean, and the Duke Ellington I listened to was sensational. All ambient noise in my home office was eliminated. The app is a little lame, and to get the 360 Spatial, you have to use one of 5 services, one of which is TIDAL, but the others were obscure to me (Deezer, Artist, mugs.net,, Peertracks)  I particularly enjoyed being able to use the conductive touch feature to raise/lower the volume, skip ahead and such. Just a quick swipe on the left earcup was all that was needed. They also include a 3.5mm cable for a wired connection if you run out of juice, but they are supposed to last for 30 hours at full charge. A nice thing, you can get a couple of hours with a 3-5 minute charge, although with the advent of more in-seat power this is not really a “feature.”  In theory you can use Aa-Lady to do things with the app, but I have not been able to figure that out yet. I also Have had issues trying to update the firmware. While I know that high-speed connectivity is coming, many do not have that and use the IFE system. This doohickey will let them use their BT headphones for which they paid a fortune.

It is also quite tragic, as we shall see. After giving a bit of background on Túrin's ancestry, it picks up where the last chapter left off, with Túrin's father Húrin imprisoned in Angband. The chapter then focuses in on Túrin's life.Like “Of Beren and Lúthien”, this chapter summarizes one of the Great Tales of the First Age.

We look forward to a chapter-by-chapter discussion of The Children of Húrin in 2023.QUOTE OF THE WEEK » "Then Glaurung died, and the veil of his malice was taken from [Nienor], and she remembered all the days of her life.
