Seeing Through New Eyes with Mark Changizi
Mark Changizi was just a fortunate YouTube suggestion a few months ago. Since then, I’ve devoured all his video content and added his book Harnessed to my ever-expanding Kindle library. I had to get him on the show and get his genius in your earholes. We talk about illusion, evolution, mass hysteria, and even why your fingers get pruney when they’re wet.

It’s the antidote to the cathedral.
I started trading crypto, mainly using bots by 3Commas, after interviewing Pavel twice. So far this year, my portfolio has doubled. I’m not giving you advice or anything, but if you’re interested, please click the links below to get in the game!
Use the Ledger Nano X wallet to keep your crypto secure when it’s not on an exchange (which it shouldn’t be unless it’s actively making you money!)

A quick tip: It's important to remain safe and secure online. Using a VPN, you can hide your location from hackers, malicious websites, governments, and other nefarious ne'er-do-wells. I've had great results with Proton VPN and IP Vanish.
