I found a book a few years ago called Prometheus Rising by Robert Anton Wilson. It is incredibly insightful. I wouldn't say I agree completely with his "model" for the brain, but he definitely shines a flashlight on how we can convince ourselves to believe anything. I try and stay on what he called the metaprogramming circuit - its the most fun


Another book that has been incredible powerful to me is the Power of Now by Eckhart Tolle. That dude just flat out gets it. A true sage of spirituality

Sapiens is an awesome look into the history of our species. Really cool how he spells everything out and asks a lot of cool questions about who was banging who back then and how environmental challenges changes different species including ours.
The follow Homo Deus is also a great and interesting read about the transition to what ever will come next after us. Mostly dives into AI and genetic humans and how we are just giving up our species freely. Scary thought.

Book helped me tremendously when dealing with forgiving myself. Made me realize in doing so that I was denying God's grace. Still struggle sometimes but it has changed my outlook for the better!

Grace is the most amazing thing. Confirms Jesus in itself

By the way, people bought me a copy of "How to Win Friends and Influence People" when I graduated high school to help me be successful.

I bet there are losers who give this propaganda to high school students graduating now.
