I hail from psych bucket land (and embodied cognition but still) and this was recommended to me by a wonderful clinical neuroeconomist who shares my interest in a lot of different buckets and the understanding that buckets don’t really exist. What an incredible intro, so excited to take this journey 💜

Entering (submersion 3 times with a certain prayer and crossing yourself) in water springs of orthodox saints(which are near or in monasteries) give very much power and sureness to people with depression, panic attacks, schizofrenia and other soul illnesses before getting to the eucharisty that heals all soul illnesses. There are some springs of mother of God Maria that heal all soul illnesses. Spring at the Monastery of st. Paraskevi at Tempi in Greece is one of many springs of saints in Greece. If you have chronic fatigue it is from masturbating, watching pornography, hate etc. 99% of all illnesses are from soul If you have diseases, bad luck, impotence, you can only have a discussion with the same person, etc. it can be from witch spellings. In the Zlătari church in Bucharest, every Wednesday at 17.00 it is read the akathist to St. Cyprian and st. Justin against charms and all demons. This akathist can be ordered at any other Orthodox church if you are baptized Orthodox. You must write your name and give it to the person receives the sheets, it is usually at the entrance to the church.

This is an absolutely amazing lecture because he doesn't just dive into the subject. He outlines the way to approach it without thinking in boxes. Its a refresher for scientific and critical thinking abilities. Designed to help unravel a very complex and challenging subject. I think I'm going to be spending some quality hours here with the Dr. One of his lectures on KoKo the gorilla brought me to this playlist.

I’m not even really interested in biology or science in general but I’ve been watching random college lectures on TRvid and I found this. Now I’m hooked. This guy is just so amazing and smart. When you aren’t worried or stressed about grades, you can truly focus on learning the content more. Especially if you have an exciting teacher like this. Using humor makes you remember stuff as well.

This lecture is an example of how you are drawn to certain subjects in school solely because of the way it was taught. One can develop interest in any discipline just by learning from the good teachers. God bless you for making these lectures publicly available.

@Dark Star King Then that’s why you either go to med school, complete residency & etc and become a psychiatrist, or complete a master’s and PhD and become a licensed psychologist. Or just become a teacher. Psychology has a lot of fields that it can work at: businesses & organizations, schools, government bodies, hospitals, etc. Especially since more people are open about mental health and willing to seek help which makes this occupation one of the better ones during these times.

I was bombing my grade 12 geography course. 30%. Then I dropped out of it and took it by correspondence. I got an A. I loved learning from the book. It was like reading National Geographic and I loved it, and finished in 7 weeks. The book was SO much better than my teacher.

First of all, i can't properly express how grateful I am that I live at the age of moder technology - that I am able to attend such a great lecture while cooking in God forgotten country, to laugh along those students, to come to new approaches and views beside them. I really do hope that the professor knows that making this available to everybody is act of unbelievable kindness. Secondly, lectures like his make me remember why I love learning so much; why I always should stay curious about things around me even though my own college years are gone. And third thing? I am a teacher, too, and I aspire to be the same way this man is - full of humor, kind, knowledgeable and approachable, truly making people to want to seek the knowledge, to think. Once again, thank you, from the very bottom of my heart.

I watched I think all 24 or 25 of his lectures and even seen Robert on some fairly resent podcasts. He is very informative, intelligent, and has an entertaining style to teaching an interesting subject(s) that could be dry and boring if attempted by others. Great job!!!!!

As always, the difference between enjoying a subject and not enjoying a subject is the way it's presented, and whether or not it's presented with actual genuine passion. Clearly, Robert is doing a fantastic job here. Kudos and praise to him. Many thanks for making this publicly available, it's what all universities should do with all their subjects.

honestly, Its crazy how much easier information is retained when you voluntarily seek it. When i was in school i would have never listened to this and would have been dying to get out of there. Now that i have the ability to learn on my own time I retain and look for information on a much higher level. Incredible.

Since this touches behaviour and "forced education", put yourself in the shoes of the government branch of education. Who are those well educated and often upper middle class people, having decision making jobs, associating with on their leisure time? Other heads of state departments, heads of big corporations, influential heads of funds and orgnizations..? Could this have an effect on whether they listen more to the parents of the children in public school, or those who need these children as workers or something else when they grow up? Could this influence the curriculum and what is deemed more important to teach them? And what would they want to teach children if they are prepped for a future without factory jobs, and a digitally controlled people spy on each other -kind of society?

I think we all underestimate the importance of teachers like professor Robert Sapolsky. A teacher, like him, not only tries to listen, see, and understand his students, but to also engage, educate, motivate and inspire his students. A great teacher wants to learn from his students and wants his students to ultimately surpass him and his work. He doesn't gatekeep, but enlightens others, seeks and invests in their full maturity and development. You can see he has passion and a sense of purpose and wants to guide others to their own success.

I'd love to be able to get full access to this course. The professor is very likeable and what's more, he seems to care deeply about getting all the knowledge and information across to whoever is interested in having it. I think he is right in saying that this should be thought to everyone ( preferably not at gunpoint :D). At this moment I feel jealous of everyone who has had the chance to take this course.

Every human should listen to this entire series. It gives you so much insight into human anthropology, behavior etc. These videos are pretty old at this point but nonetheless pertinent. I think Sapolsky is still alive and there's absolutely nothing boring about listening to him, he keeps things moving right along, and a bit of humor gets thrown in here and there. I'm so thankful this series was conserved for humanity.

The same for me, its also the case for animal studies,people have attempted to replicate the findings from the 80s but to no avail. Interesting how ( if any one knows a specific word for this please tell me) previously valid information makes its way into society but over time is found out to be wrong.But we never become aware of the change and still hold certain ideas to be true. My head is full of these false notions An example being we only use 10% (or a small %age) of our brains which possibly has its origin in Dale Carnegie’s-How to Win Friends and Influence People. Or a least seems to be popularised by the book

@Senor Lopez I don't think any of us "puny humans" can fully grasp the concept of God. If we could, then we too would be gods (in theory). The part where it's insinuated that religious people aren't intelligent, is where you say" I assume most educated people are agnostic". Not giving themselves totally and unconditionally to a single loving God. I'm aware of how the Bible was comprised, and who put it all together. Sometimes things don't make sense to us, but to the supreme controller, everything is understood by he/she. We are but mortals, talking about things which we do not fully comprehend. I consider the evidence, and formulate my "opinions" from that, I also don't try to force my beliefs on anyone, or put them down for their own beliefs. When I was young I used to believe in greek mythology. Maybe all religions are based off of the tablets of Thoth...? Idk, anything is possible. I believe in God, but upon the existence of new evidence, I could be interpreted as "agnostic" also. I hate putting any one thing into a single box. Lot of variables, and 2000 years is a long time for something to get lost in translation. But if there is a creator, I'm sure the book He has intended for us to have, is the one that He also produced. Even if it was through us "puny humans". Have a great day 😎

@It's_All_Fugazi Where did I say that intelligent people don't believe in God? I'll elaborate on my point since it doesn't seem to have hit the mark I wanted it to, educated people are more likely to be open to other ideas rather than the blind "faith" that the church would prefer you to have.

This would have to be the most appreciative comments section I have seen anywhere. Proof that most of us thirst for real knowledge because we are unsatiated by the daily sources of "knowledge". This professor nailed his role. Articulate, intelligent and witty while having an appearance that invites your attention. Best thing I have seen on TRvid to date, solely for the good it passed on to so many people.

"Most of us" seems to be a rather ignorant, or maybe just ignorantly hopeful, proclamation. There's certainly no proof here.

I have a sister seeking a masters in western psych. She herself is an addict and her kids all have sexual identity issues as well as suicidal tendencies. She claimed not to be ABLE to go to her exes wedding bcuz she felt it unfair for him to be in a happy life when he was the reason she didn't have a happy life now....she's one who tries to fit in and so when in the home of those who care not to fit in she attempts to remove babies from their loving mothers in demand that they will not thrive socially....this is venango county Pennsylvania

The first time we get a glance at Prof. Robert Sapolsky's video teaching, there's no doubt we can't escape a feeling of stunned astonishment at his unusual look, especially in his hair style. So unlike the classical image we may have formed in our younger years of an austere, conservative competent academic in a prestigious university. The bushy mustache, the luxuriant beard, and the cocky ponytail in the back form a strikingly impressive appearance. One may wonder, what kind of microscopic vegetation may prosper in such a jungle-like beard. All this, while wearing what looks like some kind of tired open shirt more appropriate to home carpentry work than standing between a professorial desk and regular school blackboards. It's easy to jump to the conclusion that we're facing a truly eccentric character, a kind of hippie-style professor better tolerated on the West Coast than in the North-East. Surprisingly, Prof. Sapolsky's style is not as extravagant and unique as we initially thought. There's another distinguished lecturing scientist who operates with practically an identical style of facial hair configuration. This is Dr. Irving Finkel, a philologist, a specialist of the Ancient languages of Mesopotamia. This was a Middle East region now in modern Iraq, part of what is called the "Fertile Crescent". This area is one of the origins of human civilizations, where farming emerged through domestication of plants, and creation of crops. Thus permitting accumulation of reserves of food, a technical development of agriculture, the formation of primitive nations, with record-keeping, government, writing, etc.. the whole megillah. Dr. Irving Finkel operates at the British Museum, in the Dept of the Middle East. He lectures a the Royal Institute. He now is about 70 or 71, which makes him 6 years older than Prof. Sapolsky. The major contrast between both hairy scientists is that Finkel's beard, mustache and ponytail are all white, and thus project a much older look than Sapolsky, who still enjoys a vigorous frame of darker hair. Nonetheless, the resemblance of looks is uncanny. It is tempting to wonder if the two have ever been photographed together. This unusual resemblance suggests another question: Are there more scientists or academics sporting a similarly remarkable bushy frame of facial hair?

He said the worst quote is from the Nationalsocialists. Yet after that quote, looking carefully at our modern Society and World... it turned out to be correct. You can hate it, you can deny it... but the reality is that we live in a Society that strives for Human degeneration on all aspects of Society and Social Integrity. The World is in a constant Downfall. ""Es ist notwendig das ich für mein Volk sterbe, aber mein Geist wird sich erheben aus dem Grab und die Welt wird wissen, daß ich recht hatte"

Finnish actually does differentiate between B and P. The ultimate difference between P and B is that B is a voiced sound and P is not. Both sounds are bilabial (pronounced using both lips) and plosives (pronounced by obstructing airflow), however a B is voiced (accompanied with a "hum"). In addiction, in English, P is aspirated if it's at the beginning of the word. That means it's accompanied by a little puff of air in words like pear, but not in words like apple. Finnish, however does not aspirate P sounds. So the Finnish speaker probably did say pear, but their accent made it difficult to differentiate as a native English listener.

@Mark Ellermets - i just saw this for the first time, so sorry that i am answering so long after your post.... I am with you, in believing that there are free-will aspects to our lives (the universe needs some randomness). however, there are so many tiny things that you would think are free-will actions, yet, even when we make a choice to do something outside of our pre-programmed biology, it is our pre-programmed biology that decides what that 'something' different might be. LOL my favorite proof is the twins example -- where the 2 twins who had been separated their whole life had some strange quirks that were unique to them (such as needing to flush a toilet twice). it's really odd how such a trivial act can be so set in humans due to our biology. ;)

@Sylvia Skinner - Hi. I don't think anyone answered you, so even tho it's been so long, i will. The prof asked the question as if he didn't expect anyone to agree with evolution because he didn't want to lead (aka bias) the class into thinking he expected them to agree with evolution. A student who doesn't believe in it will assume the college professor does, and therefore would be reluctant to admit non-belief. however, given the prof asks it in a way that sounds like he expects someone to not believe, a non-believer would feel safe to raise their hand.

@Serpentine S how does nature vs nurture remove the individuality of a human? Even ants are individuals.... or wait, what category are you thinking in at the moment? Do you mean individuals as in being able to think for ourselves, transcending our nature and nurture due to our complex conciousness, or individuals as in DNA? Or individuals as in having different facial features? There's a fuck ton of ways to see ourselves as individuals.... so what category do you fit in?

@Will Sani But his entire class is something very complicated boiled down to a simple category... Human Behavioral Biology 🤣 Nuanced would be listing genetics, biochemistry, physiology, etc all the categories within human biology that helps determine behavior. Saying a simple/lazy mind will fight complexity is simple/lazy minded since there's an evolutionary and logical reason to why humans generally favors simplicity. I assume you are smart enough to know what I'm talking about. There's also danger in over-complicating things....

I am listening to this lecture totally out of curiosity and I find the lecture extremely informative, and enlightening.

I find the topic extremely interesting and I am gonna finish listening to all the lectures in this lecture series. Thank you for making the knowledge easily accessible.

@Madhav heres anothers perspective. The Finish guy told him to practice doing testiclar biopsies on a bear. The Finish social/cultural/psychological programming had taught his hearing not to catagorise the diff between the sound of p & b. So he could only imagine he was saying "practice on a pear" when in actuality he was saying "bear". Language filters can cause a barrier to hearing sounds correctly and many other forms of sense data. Our brain often categorises incorrectly according to socially indoctrinated filters. This means we also sometime lay an incorrect catagory over sensately experiential facts and are unable to discern that we have done so. Thus we often cannot hear or see or smell etc actual facticity because we arent free of catagorical barriers.

Found out I got Bradypnea (slow breathing) self-diagnosed which causes dizziness and other symptoms. Normal breathing rate is 10-14 cycles per minute that is 10-14 x breathe in/breathe out. It takes months to retrain your breathing they say. I’d be interested to see how many breathes others take. Even 10 breathes a minute seems very fast to me, more like puffing than breathing, it’s a hard pace to maintain.
