I DO NOT LIKE THIS VIDEO’S MESSAGE!!! Please read my comment below…
Alan Watts, died 1973, is a superficial new-age philosopher repeatedly published and quoted by today’s gullible wishful thinkers.
First sentence of Alan Watts superficial drivel in the video above:
“There’s nothing wrong with being sick, or with dying”
Being sick by definition is the negative experience of painful debilitation.
And he asks what’s wrong with that?
What’s wrong with it is inherent in it’s nature as expressed by the simple definition itself.
A NEGATIVE EXPERIENCE OF PAINFUL DEBILITATION.
The entire video is so full of non-sequiturs (bullshit logic).
after some time being immortal we’d realize we don’t want to be immortal, that’s why we have children, which is to survive ‘in another way’ of ‘passing on a torch’ ‘so you don’t have to carry it all the time’.
Thereby Alan Watts reveals his perceived burden of life. Life is so troublesome that rather than live, but as a token-gesture of survival, he wants to pass on the burden to future generations.
What a disturbed spirit he was. Just another self-responsibility escape artist.
He sure sounds good to listen to though… nice deep voice, speaks in a tempered, measured way that instils confidence and commands respect. He speaks in short sentences, with poetic points that burrow their way into your mind, it all sounds good enough – beautiful even.
Yet if you actually pay enough attention to string those short sentences into complete paragraphs, and if you have some natural intelligence and ability to discern reason, you readily see how full of bullshit logic Alan Watts descriptions of life and death are.
Now check out Timothy O’Leary’s view of life and death.
