      Imagine being named "Jesus" following most of his moral code while developing your own, then realizing he was betrayed and killed by the people he tried to help the most, it makes me nihilistic, pessimistic, etc. I think he was an okay guy, I want to be an okay guy too. But the okay(non-violent/peaceful) guy ends up being betrayed, disowned, ousted, exposed, isolated, violated, before crucifixion whats the lesson?!!? AND knowing all this despite reasons to NOT be like him, I'm still out here trying my best. I swear I don't want all that bad stuff to happen to me I'm a coward. I'm not too far from his depictions either, I want to be a bad guy sometimes just to make sure I have a choice in my life's course. Jesus wasn't bad so if I do something bad I'm not Jesus and I don't have to follow his rules and do whatever I want. I'm not who I think I am and that's okay.

      @DS3R 1013 Bernard is a smart youtuber. He knows a lot about medicine. But, he needs to learn a little empathy.

      I think people's ideas are just others' ideas filtered through their own life experience and interpretations and is then made in/claimed to be their own.

      Chubbyemu (Bernard), you are absolutely brilliant! Your videos are excellent and very informative! While we are on the subject of Chinese astrology, what is your Chinese Zodiac sign, (and Western sign as well) ?

          I always do the right thing, without fail, no matter how difficult it is. That means I'm the Lord. It doesn't even matter whether or not I'm delusional about being God.. it's nice to have that kind of assurance. It's the only way anyone can truly know who they are. All else is just a collection of random, arbitrary nonsense. I would recommend the same to absolutely anyone, except perhaps may be skipping the "thinking that you're literally God" part.

                    So how life happens is relative, some will happen better and others just plummet. It's not when but if and we're all in a single predetirmined path and that might mean we don't have free will, the fight is the free will, the choices you make is the free will

                      Can your mother read my face, it'd be an interesting to know what she'd say about me

                        The face feature thing is strange, my dad does the same thing. Nearly every single thing he says about people I know is true. I'm not superstitious but I'm thinking these could be coincidences. Or they could be something else.

                          This directionless stream of conscience reminded me, depressingly, of an awful realization I had recently as a Baby Boomer. Everyone has to relearn it all from scratch! Everything that has taken nearly a lifetime to understand. You’re a smart guy. Don’t listen to yourself, read some Russian literature. (It’s not English, btw, it’s all the Indo-European languages. There is nothing special about English.)

                              Interesting about the word for “four “ in China having a parallel for the word for “death” in Japanese there is a similar thing. In fact turning “44” is like the worst age you can be apparently😂 very interesting.

                                  I'm mixed Chinese, Cambodian and German but was raised by my Cambodian grandfather and Chinese grandmother and everything you say about your mom etc is so true! Reminds me of my grandmother 😱😍❤️. My grandma can look at someone and know so much about them! She's ALWAYS right about everything she says about everything!

                                            3:20 Wow I get it now....but I think people find the pronunciation of R's to be more humorous than anything.
                                            I could tell you why, but it's fun to hear....and I think it actually gives them a more pleasant impression of character overall.

                                              1:30 I still have no idea what that is.
                                              I was never much for tribalism, and hence such extremely descriptive subcultural identifiers, but regardless I still know few ppl who could define that.

                                                        I am a mainland Chinese. During the later part of your video I start to recall some conversations I had with my grandpa when I was a kid. He had been thru WWII and Cultural Revolution as an advanced engineer. His big family collapsed piece by piece during a sequence of disasters. Houses were taken away by the Japanese, himself got jailed by the CCP for a year (along with his eldest son) in the 60s just because people rumored that he insulted Mao. Mistreated with much lower pension after retirement, fought with no response. Life finally got better in the 90s then a lot better till today, which formed most of my generation's experience.
                                                        He was a very interesting person, maybe a weirdo in strangers's eyes. Going to macdonals alone only for their ice-cream, making tea and coffee with microwave, etc. I wonder why he never complained about his life, I guess we are so close/similar but too different due to our experience. I shall never know the answer. I just miss him so much.

                                                              That's where you have to define what "you" actually means. My perspective is that "you" are not simply the ideas you believe. Those are perhaps a part of the explanation for your behavior, much like being bullied can cause you to want to bully others, but there is something that is "you" that can't be changed by your environment. There are ways that you will always see things whereas another person would not, such as people who seem to be naturally talented in understanding emotions, or physical awareness, things like that. We can be pushed around and molded into all kinds of things but there is still a big piece of each of us that is unique. I believe Jesus Christ, God Himself, is the only one who can help us fully realize us, and mold us into the shape we were meant to be, the best shape, which is to resemble Him!

For those of us born in the US, we have to ask ourselves "would I have fought for the North or for the South?" Many people would have fought for the South, but even though I was born in the South, I truly and honestly believe I would've fought for the North. Plenty Southerners did.

Basically your conscious experience is just the information running and swirling through the circuits in your mind. You are what you've sensed plus whatever instincts that temper those experiences.

                                                                                          However, I disagree with you here. Everyone is capable of free will. Making a legit rebuttal would take a long time, I just want to make a note that I disagree with your premise which sounds to me like it's more instinctual.
