Some people tend to get depressed because their brains are biologically tuned to be better at perceiving and focusing on negative information in the environment.

Living in a hostile environment is particularly bad for these people. Interestingly, there is some evidence that living in a supportive environment is particularly *good* for these people.

Many "risk" genes for mental illness may be more accurately described as genes which make people sensitive to the environment, for better or worse.

I’m starting to get tired of the inefficiency of concentrated wealth. High-net-worth (say north of $100mm) people are really bad at doing things with their money to the point I think their best strategy is to just blow it all up in hedonistic excess. It’s hard to beat the impact of just putting the money back into circulation in the hands of people who have less and can devote more cycles per dollar spending it.

Been missing my and off routine a few days due in part to a toxic guest of my housemate, but they're all leaving for the weekend and I signed up last minute for a full day of meditation and practice at the Zen temple tomorrow. I am so incredibly lucky to have these resources.

One of the things that makes toxic masculinity toxic is how it insists that men who don't wish to engage in it are inferior.

I knew a lot of this stuff long ago, but it's taken a good deal of observing people like this and realizing that they have no idea what they're missing and no idea that they're not doing stuff they could be doing, to really drive the point home for me. I haven't chewed on this realization long enough to be able to describe it much better than that.

I'm realizing that a significant proportion of white middle class Americans have little to no concept of hospitality, and thus their isolation is no surprise. My parents were like this and I chalked it up to them being weird, but it's apparent that this is actually the norm for many people.

Such people may have parties, guests even for the long term, etc etc, but there's something missing and hospitality is the best way I can name it. It seems like a learned skill that's missing.

BTW, finally having all my property sorted and organized after many years deep in the weeds is VERY satisfying and a huge step for me. For those who haven't been homeless or suffered major life chaos, having your stuff scattered and mixed around and half packed away is a huge psychological barrier and a drain on living. Even when your end goal is to have as little stuff as you've ever had! Anyway, I'm pleased.
