In Defense of Huberman

You'll notice speaking at length with very-successful Hollywood people, often white male writers, that they’ll find a way to cry during your conversation. They've been trained to do this, like monkeys, as it will help them close whatever deal or project they have on the table. The empathy game. I don’t like Andrew Huberman. He’s a rise-and-grind health grifter who lives and breathes therapy-speak. Many such cases, but he plays the game to win, and he has won. He is complicit in his own downfall because of course the empathy game is in large part about appeasing women. He should’ve known they would come for him, and he probably did know. He took the risk anyway. Why? Because the point of power, and life in general, is to enjoy it. Very powerful people take very big risks. The biggest problem in contemporary life is not the longhouse, but the simps who make it possible. Had Huberman been as transparent about his normal male sexuality as he is about his trauma, he wouldn’t be quite so embarrassed. He would be a better, more righteous person—living a “more beautiful life” as Justin Murphy has suggested. But, of course, had he been honest, he would’ve had a much harder time getting laid. Hence, the simp. However, this is all really besides the point. No matter how annoying, cringey, or hypocritical he is, an unmarried man was cancelled for having sex with unmarried women in his private life. Not even technically adultery according to original biblical meaning, which meant having sex with someone else’s wife. Other famous men have been cancelled for saying certain words in a private group chats (one got jailed for posting a meme). Others for being unkind in private scenarios. You read these big character posters in the form of very-serious-journalism and you wait for the ball to drop, some horrible act, and it never does. We have become accustomed to this state of oppression, and, like all oppressed, we seek rationalizations for why we actually deserve it. But absolutely no man, let alone the kind who strives to become publicly relevant, can survive the current cancellation standard. All private interactions collated, evaluated, and published for public consumption. Not one of us will pass this purity test; it shatters the concept of privacy entirely. Really think about it. If every one of your private messages and actions were revealed, would you survive? You know the answer. Any dude condemning Huberman and not an obviously totalitarian media aimed at destroying every last powerful straight white guy in the name of equity is complicit in their own destruction. A righteous person, a person "living beautifully" in this scenario, supports Huberman despite how unlikable and hypocritical he is, because it's the right thing to do. This is the hard thing, and also the right thing. Otherwise, when the Borg comes for you, you will deserve it.

The quality of any advice anybody has to offer has to be judged against the quality of life they actually lead. Douglas Adams I was amused last week to see that a conversation between two of the world’s most popular psychologists, Jordan Peterson and Dr. Phil, was in my list of recommended podcasts. I don’t know that official numbers as to who has a bigger audience. I would assume that with his decades on TV that it would be Dr. Phil. Although, if it’s overall attention and we count his many detractors, Peterson may have the edge. Either way, that’s unimportant, they have both been very successful at bringing psychology to the masses. Unfortunately, popularity can erode credibility. A case in point: It is not uncommon for me to dismiss a book that is wildly popular – my reflex is to assume that it is dumbed-down. While it might be a good rule of thumb, a thumb is a very crude measuring stick. We must always remember that in the middle ages an “ynche” was the breadth of a man’s thumb at the base of the nail. If I rely on better instruments when working with wood, when it comes to building a base of knowledge, this heuristic might be helpful, but be inadequate. Decades ago I would occasionally be home from university and saunter through the living room as my mother watched Oprah. Oftentimes I liked her and her guest, but I would not admit it to myself, even when it was evident that Oprah is engaging, smart, and really good at what she does. The same is true of the guest appearances of Dr. Phil. on her show. I judged the book on its cover. This was daytime TV, pop psychology, and on Oprah to boot – definitely not my demographic (Mom yes, not me). I was in university, my classes talked of the id, the ego, the superego, and personality theories. I would tell myself that my lingering in the living room was just to be amused by the quackery (which is completely laughable given he has a PhD and a successful practice and I had what to boast? A High School diploma and a little league soccer trophy…). I soon could not deny that he was not just a good entertainer, he was entertaining because he was good. I think this became evident in one of the very first episodes. I watched as a guest went through a litany of problems and described a life in shambles. I couldn’t imagine where one would begin to offer advice to this hopeless soul. Dr. Phil looked them squarely in the eyes and asked: “Just how bad do things have to get until you decide to do something about it?” This stung. Perhaps I was expecting some sympathy for their plight. I was in my early twenties, in my mind people had problems because they didn’t have solutions. Hence my default position that his job was to provide advice and have pity. Instead he offered perspective instead of sympathy. It was tough love, but necessary. He reframed the situation for them. By doing so he helped me see that oftentimes people lack solutions because they can’t see that they are the problem. When I put the Rules for Living Journal together to celebrate the work of Jordan Peterson I often paired his words with the great psychologists of the last century – Jung, Maslow, May, Fromm, Adler, Frankl, to name a few – but I also included McGraw as both are straight shooters that remind people that when you point at someone or something there are three fingers pointing back at you. It therefore came as no surprise that the ten chapters in Dr. Phil’s latest book We’ve Got Issues seemed to dovetail nicely with Peterson’s twelve rules. They cover quite a lot of ground in the podcast as they delve into the themes in Dr. Phil’s book, jumping from individual psychology to social psychology. Two notable moments for me from each domain were: Social psychology Dr. Phil’s quip, “I’d rather have questions that I can’t answer than answers that I can’t question.” says it all. Personal psychology Their musings on the difficulties they’ve had getting some mentally ill patients to let go of irrational and unhelpful beliefs is particularly interesting. Jordan brings up the story of Exodus. He notes that escaping tyranny led to 40 years in the desert – things got worse before they got better. Most importantly, those were years of wandering. Dr. Phil astutely adds (based on his expertise in the judicial and the clinical realm) that what people really need most is an alternative belief that is plausible. How often do we resist change because of the uncertainty that will ensue? Our bad situation might be uncomfortable, but it may be tolerable because it is at least predictable. We cling to certainty. This also provides clues as to why Dr. Phil’s guest from decades ago could stay idle as their life got progressively worse. These are insights that we all could benefit from. I know of nobody (myself included) who could not ask if they are clinging to certainty or afraid of asking hard questions at some level. The paradox here is that both deplore how many embrace superficial identities that box us in and thus prevent growth and learning. How many don’t listen or read either of them because of their popularity (are you listening former me?)? Popular often translates into unsophisticated, but the two are not mutually exclusive and there are many other examples that prove that. More importantly, how many will pay no heed because it’s not their demographic (or psychographic to be modern) or because it threatens their identity? Both of these psychologists stress the need to be a builder and prod ye who criticizes to come to the table with viable alternatives and contribute rather than just tear things down. One thing I’ve learned so far is not to dismiss the lessons that anyone can teach me. This is especially true if the speaker has had more success (which can be defined in numerous ways – material, professional, spiritual, relational) across any dimension than I have. Popularity is neither a great measure of success nor the most virtuous aim to pursue, but both of these psychologists gained their popularity and their success through the dogged pursuit of knowledge and understanding – that seems to be a better rule of thumb when determining who to pay attention to: look at what they’ve built what it’s built upon.

Vindicating Peterson's stance on Covid with...

post image
After seeing this clip of Jordan Peterson and “@Destiny” debating the justifiability of Covid mandates, I thought it would be fruitful to post two key facts that should outright define the discussion. The first surrounds the lethality of Covid and the second concerns the frequency of heart damage among the vaccinated. Covid is not significantly lethal to the majority of age deciles. By April of 2021, 6.9 million cases of Covid had been confirmed in the United Kingdom and case outcomes were collated into this NHS report. Table 1, presented on page 3 shows that of the ~2.4 million confirmed cases in the 20-39 age group (which is a rather large age range), 32 individuals died. Through complicated arithmetic manipulation, we find that 2,384,233 / 32 works out to a mortality rate of 1 in 74,507. For comparison, if we consult the National Safety Council (NSC) for annual American car accident fatalities by age group, we find that in the 25-45 age bracket, the death rate stands at 33.5 per 200,000 or 1 in 5,970. That translates to a 12.5-times greater likelihood of dying in a car accident than dying from Covid. It must also be noted that the NHS report was published in April of 2021 from data collection beginning in February 2020. The first wave of Covid struck the United Kingdom in 2020 before vaccine rollout and by April 2021, only around 13% of the U.K. population had been double-jabbed (which was weighted towards the at-risk elderly). So it should be specified that you were 12.5 times more likely to die from a car accident than Covid if you were unvaccinated (within the relevant age range). By now, one should be at least somewhat perplexed by the wrathful enthusiasm that Governments took towards mandatory vaccination, but let’s also check-in on the safety profile of the vaccine: Oh oh — 1 in 35 recipients of Moderna’s booster show signs of heart damage (page 1). Heightened blood-troponin levels indicated myocardial damage in 40 of the 777 participants in the test group. This study, which was widely publicised thanks to the dauntless work of Dr. John Campbell and others, has been avidly ripped apart in the consolidated annals of the legacy press. Why? Because "signs of myocardial damage" is not strictly synonymous with clinical myocarditis. Just a good indicator. We can nevertheless say that since the myocardium does not regenerate, damage done in the wake of mRNA vaccination means that unbeknownst to the vaccine recipient at the time of jabbing, some of their myocardial health and potentially some longevity has been irretrievably lost. Shouldn’t this have been picked up earlier than March 2023 (the report’s publication date)? Yes. And Jordan Peterson was rigorously correct in say that the vaccines had in no way been tested with the rigour that would have been appropriate. So the key stats that I wanted to share in vindication of Peterson’s publicly stated stance were those: ~20 to ~40 year olds were 12.5x more likely to die in car accidents than from Covid without vaccination and 1 in 35 recipients of Moderna’s booster show signs of myocardial damage. Oh, and @Destiny's counterargument that, "Covid causes myocarditis too", was a red herring since vaccination does not lower the risk of developing myocarditis from infection.

As we navigate the complex world of health and beauty, a pressing concern demands our attention—the impact of certain products on women's health. I approach this topic not as an authority dictating choices but as a Board Certified Health Coach deeply invested in public health and wellness. My intention is to foster a conversation, especially around the substances found in many cosmetics and personal care items marketed towards women, such as heavy metals, parabens, and others which carry known health risks. This discussion is rooted in care, particularly for those who might not be aware of these risks. It’s about informing, not instructing. The ethos of my personal care philosophy is simplicity and safety—I use only what I trust to be as harmless as the food I consume. This stems from a belief in the inherent beauty everyone possesses, untouched and unaltered by the products society claims are necessary for enhancement. Our culture often pushes the narrative that beauty requires augmentation, from costly cosmetics to surgical procedures, suggesting a conditional self-worth tied to physical appearance. This, I believe, does more harm than good, undermining individual confidence and well-being. However, the core of this dialogue is empowerment and choice. It’s about encouraging informed decisions that align with personal health values and beauty standards. So, to the women in my audience, I invite you to share: Have you found healthy alternatives to mainstream/harmful beauty products? How do you cultivate a sense of beauty and confidence that defies societal pressures? Your experiences and insights are invaluable as we collectively navigate these challenges, seeking health, authenticity, and self-acceptance in our journey. @carnivoreaurelius Healthy & Awake Podcast: Apple: https://bit.ly/44pEBV6 Spotify: https://bit.ly/47KVbBM Rumble: https://bit.ly/3HPzG6V YouTube: https://bit.ly/3SKeZjn Substack: https://bit.ly/3TI9Jgw X: https://bit.ly/43sR7oa Mike Vera isn't your average Board Certified Health Coach (NBC-HWC).

Sometimes, what's right in front of us isn't what it seems. Our brains, in their quest for efficiency, employ heuristics and biases—shortcuts that, while useful, can make us susceptible to influence. Propaganda exploits these shortcuts through narrative control, fostering group conformity via bipartisan politics, and leveraging authority to forge a consensus. These are just a few of the ways it shapes our thoughts and perceptions. Similarly, marketing mirrors these tactics but focuses on consumer behavior—crafting compelling narratives in advertising, using influencers to shape our perception of status, and catchy jingles designed to linger in our minds. These pervasive strategies don't just influence our views; they subtly nudge our behavior, often in less healthy directions. As a Board Certified Health Coach (NBC-HWC), I guide you through not just adopting healthier habits in nutrition, exercise, sleep, and stress management, but also in recognizing and countering these external influences. Our unique approach empowers you to use these very tactics for your own benefit, turning the tables on the forces that shape your decisions. Reach out to explore how we can redefine your health narrative. What unnoticed influences have you identified in your life, and how have they shaped your decisions?

The Truth Does Not Require Your Belief

The concept of censorship often emerges under the banner of preventing the "dangerous spread of misinformation." However, I've come to see censorship itself as the greater threat. The essence of truth is its resilience under scrutiny; it does not fear examination. Governing from a place of fear and weakness, where censorship is seen as a necessary tool, undermines the very foundation of free discourse. The notion of censorship inherently suggests a belief of "I'm right and you're wrong," serving more as a mechanism of thought control than protection. The principle of free speech seems to be increasingly conditional, often followed by a "but" that introduces a strong opinion. Should the strength of one's conviction justify infringing on another's right to free expression? History shows us that ideas, even those initially deemed "bad" or incorrect, evolve and improve through open dialogue, not through silencing. In this spirit, Healthy & Awake Podcast regularly features episodes and interviews with experts who challenge the status quo and mainstream narratives. Our aim is to uncover the truth by fostering discussions that might otherwise be stifled. I invite you to check out the podcast as a resource for perspectives that encourage critical thinking and dialogue (Apple/Spotify/Rumble). I am committed to voicing my thoughts freely, regardless of who it may unsettle, and I urge others to do the same. If you disagree with what's being said, the solution isn't to silence the speech but to engage with it, challenge it, and argue your position. The right to speak one's mind is fundamental, and no amount of opposition should extinguish that flame. How do we protect the integrity of discourse without resorting to censorship? Can you recall a time when an idea you initially disagreed with changed your perspective after open dialogue? How did that experience shape your view on the importance of free speech?

Why We Should Change the Names of Personality...

Why We Should Change the Names of Personality Disorders A New Method of Cluster B Diagnosis “Therapy-speak” exists for a reason — in many cases, it’s excellent shorthand for various personality structures, serving to bridge communication between therapists and patients, patients and their intimate contacts, and vulnerable populations with the community at large. However, many terms in the therapeutic pantheon — most notably Narcissistic Personality Disorder (Narcissism or NPD), Borderline Personality Disorder (BPD), and Antisocial Personality Disorder (ASPD or Sociopathy) — are accused of being, and very often are, “weaponized” against those with less severe personality disturbances, and, more insidiously, used by malicious actors to discredit and impute self-doubt to well-adjusted people. Instead of discarding existing psychological concepts and adding diagnostic subcategories to the ever-expanding DSM, the therapeutic community and concerned laymen should develop new terms that divest the exploration of Cluster B personality disorders of its negative emotional charge. Not only would this greatly lower resistance in subjects under analysis, but could even expedite the diagnostic process by mobilizing the unique features of each disorder toward revealing themselves. Let’s change Narcissistic Personality Disorder to “Master Narrator” Narcissists are known for inhabiting a fanciful and elaborately codified inner world that brooks no contact with reality. As such, there’s no surer way to trigger the narcissist’s defense mechanisms than by suggesting that they are, in fact, a narcissist. However, a term such as “Master Narrator” would be perfectly descriptive of the disorder’s central feature — a deep-seated, highly fictionalized self-concept that distorts reality into a self-serving inner monologue — while appealing to the narcissist’s outsized ego. Imagine the following conversation: THERAPIST: “Sir, I believe you are a Master Narrator.” PATIENT: “I am, thank you! I sometimes find myself weaving elaborate yarns around the most innocent-seeming details. That tie you’re wearing, for instance… it reminds me of a drawing I made when I was a child. The designer ripped me off! You see, I remember watching an interview with him where he mentioned my name…” The narcissist, softened by the flattering designation of “Master Narrator,” has effectively self-diagnosed and spared his interlocutor the thrashing reserved for those who dare invoke NPD. Borderline Personality Disorder? No, “Poetic Spirit” Borderlines are emotionally labile, relying on external inputs for self-regulation. Like the Narcissist, the Borderline can be flung into a days-long rage based on any perceived slight. Unlike the Narcissist, they bond ferociously to individuals and situations with a positive emotional valence (real or perceived). This volatility attests to a poetic view of reality, where anything and everything can become a lifelong foe or raison d'être. If someone is suspected of being Borderline, the news should be broken gently — they have a Poetic Spirit. Tell them this and they’ll agree, and probably put you on the “good” side of their polarized emotional spectrum. Not Antisocial Personality Disorder, but “Upper Percentile” Terminology surrounding this disorder is already the subject of much debate. It’s variously referred to as Antisocial Personality Disorder, Psychopathy, or Psychopathic Personality Disorder, and often conflated with schizophrenia, an unrelated condition. Unlike the Narcissist or Borderline, those with ASPD have a flat emotional register and, if intelligent, are highly efficacious in creative and managerial roles. Since the less intellectually gifted ASPD population is usually incarcerated or otherwise removed from society, this example deals only with Antisocials of above-average intelligence, who are known for shrewdly outmaneuvering attempts at therapeutic intervention. Suspected ASPD subjects might like to be referred to as “Upper Percentiles,” as mathematical abstractions appeal to their amoral, pragmatic worldview and stoke their inner grandiosity. Gain their confidence this way, and they may even open up about their methods and misdeeds — not even a true psychopath is immune to flattery. Much of psychoanalysis consists of semantic games, and there’s no reason why therapists and laymen shouldn’t add terms like these to their toolkit if dealing with resistant subjects. Much of this resistance is a response to the perceived social consequences of a Cluster B diagnosis, but suggesting that one may be a “Master Narrator,” “Poetic Spirit,” or in the vaunted “Upper Percentile” would not only create a more open therapeutic culture, but make it more difficult to weaponize its insights.

Ultra-processed foods are not just convenient; they're crafted to be irresistible. The food industry invests heavily in research to discover the perfect blend of ingredients—many of which barely qualify as food—to ensure we can't stop at just one serving. Beyond the product itself, vast resources are funneled into marketing strategies, keeping these snacks at the forefront of our minds and a staple in our shopping carts. The consequences of this engineered addiction are evident in the soaring rates of obesity, cardiovascular disease, diabetes, and other diet-related conditions affecting populations worldwide. In an attempt to combat these issues, Colombia has implemented a "junk food law," introducing a tax on ultra-processed foods. While this initiative might be considered a step in the right direction, it's just one of many strategies that could be employed to tackle the health crisis. At Red Pill Health and Wellness, we advocate for empowering individuals to take control of their health, rather than relying solely on institutional measures. True wellness comes from making informed, personal choices about our nutrition and lifestyle. Interested in exploring how you can take charge of your health journey?

Huberman Has It Half Right

“ Choice of attention – to pay attention to this and ignore that – is to the inner life what choice of action is to the outer. In both cases, a man is responsible for his choice and must accept the consequences, whatever they may be. ” — W.H. Auden Andrew Huberman, Ph.D., specialist on the eye and vision, advises us to get outside for a few minutes every morning. "View morning sunlight!” is one of my common refrains. Viewing sunlight within the first hours of waking (as soon as you can, even if through cloud cover) increases early-day cortisol release (the ideal time for elevated cortisol) and prepares the body for sleep later that night. A morning spike in cortisol will also positively influence your immune system, metabolism and ability to focus. Further, morning sunlight helps regulate your “circadian clock” — the body’s mechanism for anticipating when to wake up and go to sleep — and it manages other biological processes like hunger and body temperature. So, by going outside we hit reset button on our circadian clock. By getting sunlight into our eyes early in the day (through the windshield does not count) we are effectively helping ourselves be more alert in the daytime and sleep sounder at night. But I think that’s only the half of it. It’s not just about the light that gets into your eyes when we add this to our morning routine, it’s also about subtraction. There’s a war going on for eyeballs. Eyeballs equate to attention. Attention means dollars, votes, or status. Perhaps there is an equally beneficial effect: resetting your brain – owning your focus and your thoughts. Going outside is more than good for your body, it’s good for your soul (or at least your mind if that is too esoteric for you). For his light exposure advice see: Using Light for Health – Huberman Lab Also, Huberman also has a lot of great advice on developing focus and attention. If you read this, the title is just to attract eyeballs (so, if you’ve read this far, I made my point!). Andrew, if you read this, I wish people like you were around when I studied physiology and started a PhD., you show that being condemned to the lab full time wasn’t my only fate. K.

Pharmaceuticals or Lifestyle Medicine?

While I often voice concerns about the medical system and the influence of the pharmaceutical industry, it's clear to me that the majority of doctors genuinely strive for the well-being of their patients and recognize the importance of lifestyle medicine. Certainly, there are those who may be overly influenced by what can sometimes appear as pharmaceutical propaganda, masquerading as 'rigorous studies'. Yet, many are enlightened and aware. A glaring oversight in our current healthcare model is the lack of emphasis on lifestyle as a fundamental component of health. This is precisely the void that health coaches aim to fill. We emerge in response to this oversight, acknowledging that while most individuals, particularly those battling chronic conditions, understand the need for healthier lifestyles, putting these understandings into practice can be daunting. The challenge often lies not in knowing what to do, but in how to implement these changes sustainably and effectively, without faltering in the absence of a supportive structure. At Red Pill Health & Wellness, we bridge this gap. We don't just hand over a generic plan and send you on your way. I, Mike Vera, engage directly with you to understand your aspirations and collaborate on a tailored approach to achieve them. Have you ever felt overwhelmed by trying to make healthier lifestyle choices? Do you find it challenging to maintain consistency without someone to hold you accountable?
