I Am Not My Diet   "There is more to me than what I eat or what I believe about what I eat."Chris Highcock, Conditioning Research


The Pleasures Of Drowning   "What follows is the first installment of what (I hope) will be an ongoing journal of my progress in BJJ. I suspect that many readers of this blog have no interest in the martial arts and will consider this an unfortunate departure from my main areas of competence. I am convinced, however, that training in BJJ offers a powerful lens through which to examine some primary human concerns—truth v. delusion, self knowledge, ethics, and overcoming fear. I hope some of you bear with me."Sam Harris

["BJJ" means Brazilian Jiu Jitsu.  You don't have to be a BJJ practioner to appreciate this article.  Harris has embeded two videos in this article.  The first one shows a "martial arts master" tossing his students around without making physical contact.   It is one of the most bizarre demonstrations I have ever seen.  The second video shows the same martial arts master getting his face punched–repeatedly–by another martial artist who is really fighting.  Apparently the fighter in the second video didn't get the memo that the martial arts master has some mystical, secret powers.]–George
