  • 10 grey pants
  • 10 grey shirts
  • 3 grey button ups
  • 2 grey sweaters
  • 2 grey pairs of shoes

4.3 The 4 Diets (nutrition, sociality, media consumption, knowledge )

Someone once asked why not maximize the amount of experiences and clothe yourself with diverse views from everywhere you can. It assumes that I will come back , many of those well travelled people have refined simplifications of huge

4.3.1 Nutrition Diet

This is really the foundation of where huīsè de starts. You are a function of what you eat or at least in large

  • Plant based
  • No processed foods (very minimally)
  • No condiments
  • No oils or butters
  • No restaurants / delis
  • Meal prep (minimal preparation)
  • Always bring your own plants food
  • Nuts and beans
  • No such thing as a cheat day
  • Rewards are typically pistachios and other raw foods

4.3.2 Social Diet (solitary but social)

  • leave most of social media and become a producer
  • stop wasting time socialising and philosophising with friends, spend time building towards competence and then mastery
  • your job is not to please people or be the most agreeable person in the room, in fact overcoming time-filling human relations will be the biggest challenge you face in the modern world that is hyperconnected
  • value deep connections and do away with small talk and gossip
  • be comfortable being disagreeable enough and you will only track those who intend to use your time well because they also intend to use their time well.
  • we are in fact social animals, but that does not be sociality is intrinsically valuable, the orangtun is a good example of an intelligent animal that is minimally social and spend time alone or in very small groups, this is what you should strive for, a few deep relationships that come not from endless daily gossip but a shared mission to use life as a way of taking a set of existential questions to their end, in hopes of pushing what it means to be human forward.

4.3.3 Media Diet (lose your cellphone)

  • we both don’t have a single cellphone
  • we track social media usage outside of posting

4.3.4 Knowledge

  • we’ve went through large bouts of consumption of books (600+), audiobooks, and lectures. We recommend knowledge consumption only at the rate to which you can practice and teach it to others. We went from trying to read 100 books in a year, to reading just 2-3.

4.4 Time

Time is a construct. You never have enough it. This is only a half truth. We waste time because we don’t know how to use our time effectively. We spend our wasted time, helping others waste their own time, and we find ourselves lacking the depth we really care

4.5 Depth and Breadth

Follow a question, not a domain. A question will take you on an adventure that can’t be captured by any of the categorical buckets of knowledge we’ve instituitionalised.

Fanli followed the question of why do we constantly sacrifice our life and our time as if we have an endless amount. And more particularly, why do many accept that social relations is a worthy excuse to live pathologically. This lead him from anthropology, sociology, cognitive science, neuroscience, and now towards deep learning and mathematics

Haohan followed the question why do many people who identify as female, value asethetic beauty as an ultimate capital and how does that effect the structure of a person living in the modern world, which has lead her through books and lectures on psychology, neuroscience, self-help and now machine learning and deep learning to try to create a different future.

4.6 Death

the denial of death leads us to treating our time as if it is infinite and we could . Instead you should be a meiser with your time. You should consider it your utmost responsibility to make the most use of your time so that you can become useful to society. That means stop wasting most of it and put yourself on a schedule. That means calling time wasted exactly what it is. The time you put into mastery will increase your ability to impact not just those around you and in your immediate group, but society and furthermore the world.

4.7 Data

Hone your gut intuition by immersing yourself in the data of your life.
