Yes, shortly before the university, I remember it gloom, eg: Frankl: find a reason to endure life Peterson: find something that makes life worthwhile Me: you are what you do, who do you want to be? IMHO: diff subtle but important. BTW: there's a child's movie: The Iron Giant

If I were searching for happiness, I would not have studied a PhD, but I did, because I was searching for meaningfulness, which IMHO is better, as it may last longer than your life [If I made terrible mistakes, that's a different topic] wrt happiness:

But I think sometimes we form beliefs as children (before have the cognitive and emotional maturity to realize they don't make sense), and then don't consciously re-evaluate those thoughts for years (if ever)

Indeed. Adults have ideas slipping into their minds subconsciously. They may connect w/ other ideas, impact on them For children this is more likely (less background & critical thinking,…) → larger impact Some people need professional help to become conscious of their ideas

It's not capitalist values, it's game theory & incentives, they're everywhere, they permeate everything. When properly aligned, they are powerful but go unnoticed. When misaligned, they are devastating, spelling tragedy & dystopia, then we see their force

Si me hubieran mencionado "Ásatrú" hace 5 minutos, habría pensado que me tomaban el pelo, pero lo de las 9 virtudes está muy alineado (expande y ¿mejora?) el bushido (código ético no sólo de samuráis). Muy interesante, ¡gracias!

We all have have things we like to do, focus on what feels like work to others You don't need to compete and be the best, but you need to be yourself, happy, free, different, and valuable for society, as an artist, engineer, creator, entrepreneur,…

Focus on what brings joy to you, your intellectual interests. If you are good at something, the society will want more of that thing from you. If that is a virtuous cycle of joy & freedom or a vicious cycle of capitalist oppression depends only on you.

Do not restrict yourself to already walked & well known paths, go to the unknown (blue ocean), research, i.e. learn what nobody knows and cannot be taught, you will be the only one w/ your skills. Nobody is better than you at being you.

You could put an example: An idea in tweets, then in a blog, so that we all go "ooh! I had totally missed the point there!" That would help. Then we can try to summarize in tweets again IMHO, short writing may be just as clear and precise, but more challenging Then images…
