Get Real: Training Involution 106

Late to the party?  This month’s focuses are Wrestling and The Hourglass.

Get Real: Training Involution #106

  • Wrestling Conditioner #4.  Set timer for 10 mins.  Shin Ride your heavy bag and strike x10, mount and strike x10, roll to bottom position and up-strike x10, then bridge, knee boost, or hip escape from under the bag, and repeat as many times as you can before the timer beeps.  Strike full power and take as few 12-count breaks as possible in order to finish.
  • Jump rope for 10 mins, as fast as you are able.  Take as few 12-count breaks as possible in order to finish.
  • Have you memorized the Emerald Tablet yet?  Yes?  Good job!  No?  This is Cabal Fang, it’s only 250 words, and its required.  “Chop-chop — I’m waiting,” I say.  “But why?” you reply.  Because The Emerald Tablet is a 1,000+ year-old piece of wisdom literature that describes “reality” as a conversation between consciousnesses — and so does this 20-minute TED talk by Donald Hoffman, which tackles the idea that consciousness is prime, not matter.

    Wow! Finally got around to watching this on my lunch hour. I’ll definitely need to return to it. The presentation is elegant and accessible but, man, this is some deep stuff and warrants a lot of reflection. My mind–whatever else it may be–is totally blown . . . thanks for posting, Mitch!

    I know, it’s mind-blowing, amazing stuff right? One of these days, when we’re hanging out in real life, I’ll tell you the story of my near-death experience at age 6 — what I experienced, how close it was to what Hoffman is exploring in his TED talk, and why it was probably the catalyst for a life-long search for spiritual meaning that culminated in Cabal Fang. Glad you enjoyed it!
