Gün önce

Jonathan Pageau, Douglas Murray, and Dr Jordan B Peterson discuss our hierarchies of perception, existence, faith, and whether meaning is a self evident truth or something intangible that is sought in vain.
Jonathan Pageau is a French-Canadian liturgical artist and icon carver, known for his work featured in museums across the world. He carves Eastern Orthodox and other traditional images, and teaches an online carving class. He also runs a TRshow channel dedicated to the exploration of symbolism across history and religion.
Douglas Murray is a British political commentator and author. In 2007 he founded a think tank called the Center for Social Cohesion, which later became part of the Henry Jackson Society. Currently he is an associate editor for the magazine the Spectator, where he became somewhat infamous after organizing a competition in which entrants were invited to submit offensive poems about Turkish president Recep Tayyip Erdoğan, with a top prize of £1,000. He has authored five books, the most recent of which being “The War on the West.”
Dr Peterson's extensive catalog is available now on DailyWire+:

As a lifelong atheist/agnostic raised in the presbyterian church, it wasn’t until a very close family member who was Antiochian orthodox just recently passed away that I started to feel my inner architecture shift towards some longing curiosity towards orthodoxy. For whatever reason, talks like this one and others involving Jonathan Pageau have completely blown me wide-open, kicked down the doors and started remodeling my inner architecture. I’ve never been this kind of person at all, but I found myself weeping tears of joy/relief on my commute to work this morning as I listen to this. Thank you, gentlemen. Now starts my real work.

I came to believe in God about a year ago. It became clear to me that humans have always been searching for truth, and that truth always seems to point toward goodness. John 8:32, John 14:6, psalm 51:6, John 1:1.... All these speak to our desire to know the Truth, which I believe to be the fundamental aspect of humanity. One either seeks the truth, or avoids it all costs, those that seek the truth are humble, practice kindness, and see the obviousness that there is some kind of spiritual force for good. Those who avoid truth, tend to be self-centered, callous, and cold. I came to realize that one believes in Goodness, or God, or one is evil...or inspired by the devil

Nikos Antikythera

I think there's nothing contrary to faith by doubting or losing it in part, or even altogether. The true ongoing struggle is essential to the gradual deepening of faith (as opposed to "prelest"), including even simply the desire for it. The rejecting of it, as we engage with the world that too often destabilizes us and creates doubt within us, is quite frequently temporary. Hopefully, when we return to our faith again, we rediscover that this is where the light (the "uncreated light") actually resides alongside truth. To have faith, and then believe or be convinced that one is safely, easily, and permanently "locked in" to an unassailable place, that is, to a strictly intellectual, rational, relationship with the transcendent that can never be doubted or assailed or deconstructed is the mistake and the illusion. The transcendent exists. Christ is the perfection we seek but can never completely reach, which doesn't invalidate the necessity of the ongoing struggle toward him. ☦

@Barton Lee that is extraordinary since he referred to a book written in 2022 in the video. Time travel perhaps? "Fled" is not what you do by driving to an airport and sitting on a flight. Your multiple comments about "Russia" and "addiction" would indicate obsession. Get help for yourself.

They are all rhetoricians, obviously. Nothing they said is even the accepted creed and doctrine of single church in the world. They are just trying to invent a religious metaphysical basis for the current Christian conservative worldview, which they all like and admire for its outcomes and not for its beliefs. Basically, at best jordan peterson is ready to call all religious stories as mere stories written by ancient hebrew psychologists who somehow knew jungian psychoanalysis. None of them is a true christian, you know it, I know it(Even though I am a muslim) and every christian theologian of every church knows it. They have good intentions in the sense that they want to save people from nihilism and skepticism that comes from modernity. But their attempt is not genuine nor true. Nobody believes in religion for rational reasons, no matter how much jordan peterson tries to REINVENT AND REINTERPRET AND REVISIT religion. Religious belief doesn't start from rationality nor rationalizations. Nobody will stop having intercourse before marriage or outside marriage because of "the weird fictional true" rationalization forbids it. People do that only if the hell and heaven are true, so true that the fear of hell and the want of heaven should direct your actions. The miracles of prophet jesus (PBUH) were not stories mr. jordan peterson, if they were stories, the belief in them becomes optional. If all religion is PRAGMATIC AND PSYCHOLOGICALLY useful fictions, then why should it have authority ? Why can't everyone be free to make his own fictions, which might be more pragmatic and psychologically useful ? If the pragmatic and psychologically useful fictions of a social justice/mystic leftist group provides them more moral certainty and lessens then existential angst, then why should they believe in your rationalizations ? And then there is more to say about psychoanalytic justifications for your beliefs. Psychoanalysis is in itself a pseudo-scientific endeavor and is just a reading of effects of cultural/social/material life on human thinking, not a discovery of true human nature. You cannot erect your new religion from a pseudoscience. The Christianity of st. Augustin, st. peter, st. thomas aquinas and martin luther king is THE CHRISTIANITY. What you people are doing is just making a new religion out of thin air for "pragmatic" reasons. And trying to become NEW PROPHETS OF IT. The virgin birth is true, in literal sense, and I bear witness to its truth.

That insight at 1:01:57 - "Is there anything more real than pain?...The Meaning that overcomes pain is more real than the pain and that's actually what meaning is." Pure gold.

Yet meaning does not need to come with pain. Its not 'pure gold' its word salad. It sounds deep yet it means nothing.

@Darryl Elam ​ @Darryl Elam I dont know how you can say its word salad and that it means nothing. Genuine people dont do or say things that mean nothing. They aren't just making this stuff up. I almost want to say that youre just making stuff up when you say, "Yet meaning does not need to come with pain", but I think I know what youre saying, and its not meaningless, you just misunderstand what they were saying. I replied to your comment on my comment thread, and coming from that, it seems to me you simply dont have the full context, you dont understand what they are actually saying. If you did understand, and you still disagreed, that doesnt then mean that what they said was meaningless word salad, it could just mean that what they said was wrong.
Darryl Elam
Darryl Elam 6 aylar önce
@Daniel Galvez "Genuine people dont do or say things that mean nothing." And they aren't genuine people, what part of that aren't you understanding? "you just misunderstand what they were saying" Nope, pain is NOT part of meaning, what they said was not only pointless but F'ing stupid. Things are ether real or not real, there is no such thing as 'more real'. Meaning that doesn't come with pain is just as real as meaning that comes with pain. Meaning has NOTHING to do with pain. Meaning definition Noun: what is meant by a word, text, concept, or action. adjective: intended to communicate something that is not directly expressed. Notice how pain it NOT part of that. Overcoming pain dos NOT make what is meant by a word, text, concept, or action more real. Not having to overcome pain does NOT make a meaning less real. Its the same level of real. This is nothing but word salad meant to convince you that they are really smart people when in truth they have nothing of value to say. They do that because that's how they make their money, its a con job to get you to buy his books, 23 of them and/or support him financially in other ways.
Daniel Galvez
Daniel Galvez 6 aylar önce
​@Darryl Elam Why dont you think they are genuine people? Just because they sell books? I hope not, that'd be ridiculous. They are pretty smart: they are at least above average, its not your IQ that determines whether you're worth listening to it's whether you have anything meaningful to say, whether you're sharing a useful understanding that the listeners lack. And being able to say things concisely as they do in this video is very useful. Its not like they haven't expanded on these ideas in other videos, they have, so these ideas are not meaningless, there is a great deal of context you clearly lack. There are tons of videos where Peterson goes into more detail about these ideas, they are not just empty words. If you disagree with what Peterson has to say in those videos, then fine, you disagree, but they are not empty words deprived of meaning. Besides I dont support him financially at all, most of their listeners dont. And Notice how Google's definition of meaning you pulled has nothing to do with the other way people use meaning, like in the question, "what is the meaning of life." If that google definition was all there was, then that question would be as simple as looking up the definition of the word life. Clearly, they are not using the word "meaning" with that definition you pulled in mind. In this case it is right to say they are using jargon, specialized words that outsiders wouldn't understand.

He's not a genius, he's an artist in the true sense of the word. He has the same kind of brain and education as me. He sees very far and deeply into things and he makes conncections and recognises patterns that others don't see but he struggles with the details. And then his knowledge of Orthodoxy provides his style of thinking and perceiving with a rich and solid foundation.

I go to church because it gives me a sense of calm and peace, listening to the word gives me a sense of security and sanity. Having a church community, helps me grow, keeps me grounded, accountable for my actions, and incentivizes me to be a better person. Learning good morals, discipline and how to live a better life it’s why I am part of a church and follow tradition, I believe this is very important for everyone so that we stay away from depression and the psychologists. I am grateful to God for this 🙏🏻🙌🏻

Lorem Ipsum
Lorem Ipsum 8 aylar önce
Did you notice, first he asks "Is Chritianity exhausted force or unexhausted force" and quite soon after that says "one of the revolutions of Christian tradition is that everybody has an intrinsic value"? Can't we derive from the two statements: "Is the idea of people having intrinsic value an exhausted force or not?" I don't know why, but I misspelled the word "intrinsic value" repeatedly "intrinsic meaning". Intrinsic meaning feels to hint at action more than intrinsic value, later feels to imply to something static. Some branches of Judaism see people as co-creators of the world. That line of thinking offers intrinsic meaning as well as value.

Lucas 8 aylar önce
This is such a beautiful conversation. I think the “leap” Jordan and Douglas struggle with is actually having a RELATIONSHIP with the transcendent/divine. It’s not simply about believing, but embodying as Jonathan (and the church) says. If you remain in the sphere of “fiction” and “ethical systems,” you are like an actor that can only study and appreciate acting, but cannot walk out on stage and actually take your part in the play.

Agreed, as I similarly commented above. I love listening to this kind of discussion, but in the end, it's not something that can be rationalised, or arrived at by mental gymnastics. Somewhat ironically, they discuss how the (or a) divine or "meta-being" must necessarily exist for anything else to make sense, in order to make any sort of value judgment, and to derive order from the chaos of our universe, but this seems to miss the obvious (to me) conclusion that solely rational thought cannot allow us to comprehend a divine being in a different plane of existence.

They are still blinded by their intellect. Faith is much more than a subject one can study in school. In fact the more ‘knowledge’ one has, the harder or further away from the absolute truth they are obtaining

Embody like Mother Teresa who didn't believe in medicine or birth control and thought suffering was a way to heaven? Like that? Pft.
Thesteadfast 8 aylar önce
@Emma Shalliker Claims like that against St. Theresa have been debunked. Cynical people try to tarnish the legacy of good people. Also, Jordan Peterson advocates very strongly for facing suffering as a path to self-improvement. There is a huge difference between telling people to suffer and acknowledging that it is inevitable and the way you face it matters.

In a world full of disarray, disagreement, and distress, this conversation is an oasis for this soul. 3 deep thinkers with different world views, discussing the most core existential questions of life, while maintaining respect and being of equal conversational reciprocity. If conversations like this became commonplace, mankind's progression would be much more meaningful than just simple expansion and "advancement". Without these core meanings, every other pursuit of mankind will be unsustainable. Bravo to these gentlemen 🙏

This is Jordan in his element. Putting words around the seemingly conflicting but possibly symbiotic relationship between religiosity and science. This is the shit i love to see him speak about.

Thank you for this invaluable discussion! I got very deep realizations from it like faith as an antidote to resentment (JBP); a very clarifying concept of art as a participatory experience beyond irony and satire (JP); and DM's assessment on Andy Warhol's only ability to pose questions. As a fine artist, I am profoundly aware of the state of our culture from watching how art became just non-transcendent and uninspiring objects of consumption for the individual totally disconnected of the communal purpose. I'm looking forward to the next conversation. Thank you again.

I listened to this while driving home from my weekly visit to my older brother. I loved Douglas’ last statement- maybe that is what we need, something that transcends the natural. I related with Jordan’s comment that we are still living out the scriptures- I feel that in my own life. And I agree with Johnathan that yes, these things really happened.

Brilliant conversation! Inspiring, deep and motivating, visions of light, thank you so much! I would like to differ though on one subject, namely ART. Art has it’s own history and it’s own function and in the harsh judgements at the end of the conversation remind me of the disturbing sides of Religion: dogma and judgement. Art holds a space which is free of anything. Free from the material reality if it wants, free to discover and uncover what reality can mean in it’s widest sense. It has a function of moving someone, connecting with someone, opening a part of someone. This is very individual and can also absolutely happen through something ugly, distorted or ambiguous!!! Critical Art is another virtuous path with a compelling history! Art can express the ugly, the aggressive, as a form of relieving yourself from it and can be recognized by others, helping them do the same. Taste is a dangerous little bugger. Just placing a reminder to ‘Entartete Kunst’ (degenerate art) here. And although you were both surely thinking of specific pieces, maybe look at your own frustration and judgement with new curiosity..

Dear lord... this was an amazing conversation.

I feel Jordan sees the Judeo Christian faith as an important if not the most important philosophy there has as yet been on the basis of the good influence it has had. The conversation is very complex but at times gives the impression of three people in a fairly dark room not quite able to see what they're looking for. I am reminded of verses from the the gospel of John. "In the beginning was the Word and the word was with God and the word was God and without Him was not anything made that was made" A statement that encompasses everything. The most crucial thing is not so much our various opinions and insights and ideas about the subject of God but the decision as to whether we will or won't surrender our so called right to ourselves and give our lives back to God from they came. I'm not sure if that is a settled issue in Jordans life. I pray so. Yes God gave us minds with which to think and discuss but He came not just to offer an excellent philosophy and illustration but through Christ to have His very life living within us. It is important to remember that God's wisdom transcends ours and as scripture puts it :"in your light we see light".

Sen Dog ---How do you know that good art discovers patterns beyond the physical. What does that even mean? Show me something that is "beyond physical". What evidence do you have apart from saying that art discovers it? Then you come up with some new definition for God that I've never heard of and finally you give us some false dichotomy by giving us a choice between two made up concepts. Sorry, but what a word salad this is.

I don’t think we have ever seen Dr. Peterson so well and so healthy. The last time he talked to Douglas Murray, he looked to be so ill and in so much pain that he could barely get his breath to speak. I hurt for and with him. It is so good to see him now without layer upon layer of pain on his face. It’s as though something deep healed, not just in his body, but in his spirit. It is so good.

After listening to that; I feel that I can , on some level , relate to that Wittgenstein student. You three are probably too modest to allow me to put your names into such an analogy , but from my perspective (relative to my own intelligence / understanding) that discussion was utterly magnificent. What I mean to say is; I'm in awe at the level upon which the discussion took place and I'm thankful to be fortunate enough to be able to listen to it and enjoy it. Thank you.

@Darryl Elam Either you're using the term word salad in a way I'm unfamiliar with, or I would disagree that's its word salad. Its certainly not unintelligible. You could say they are speaking in jargon, but that's not exactly right, they are going back and forth with abstract ideas rather than diving deep and making the ideas clearer. I see that as, they are familiar with the ideas, to the extent that simply stating one builds on the previous one and everyone in the room knows the full context, no need to deep dive. So like the general ideas are the jargon, and in order to fully understand them you would need to dive deep in explanation and picking every possible hole to make sure you have the whole clear picture, whereas here they all already know the whole discussion to be had on each general idea, so there's no need to spend extra time on clearing things up. It makes the conversation go a lot faster, you can really get to the point of things and really advance the conversation toward frontiers like that.

The word that was running through my head as soon as this conversation was fully formed finally showed up at about 1:16. Gratitude. The dichotomy between gratitude and ingratitude (blatant ego, imo) is what much of (modern, but probably all ) human life boils down to, I think.

I agree, once the PC party loses Poilievre on or before the end of this decade we will be in a better position to have a change in government. In the mean time it looks like the Liberals will likely win the next election in 2025 and govern until 2029. Let's hope by that time that a good Conservation leader comes forward.

I grew up going to a Lutheran church as a kid with my grandmother who was the only one in my family that took religion seriously. I’ve been very interested in it as a young age but as I started growing older and wiser I would often have many questions during my confirmation. My entire life it was shown to me that religion is about faith and belief in the literal sense, I was never taught any philosophy by Christianity what so ever. During my last year during confirmation as I was really fed up with Christianity as I had been doing my own research for a long time now we had a new pastor from the Virgin Islands begin to teach us. He took my questioning extremely seriously and for the first time in my life validated it, HARD. When I explained to him the ridiculousness held in the belief of Noah’s Ark he agreed with me and explained that maybe it was not supposed to be taken literal, but as a metaphor. During that time I was extremely interested in Buddhism as there was not any scientific disputes in the religion, and it didn’t involve god. He handed me Siddhartha right away and told me to read. He explained that religion is like languages , although different they serve the same purpose , and he was grateful for my history with the church as he believed you must start with one language in order to learn the rest.Siddhartha opened up my mind to the idea of spirituality and being bettered through religion and ego death became my main goal. After years of spiritual practice and meditation I believe I achieved the first stage of (enlightenment) and it caused me to fall out of the religion. When your ego begins to die you do have the illusion of killing suffering as you begin to realize that life has no meaning. I now believe after found through a very difficult time with that realization that the ego is an extremely important part of the human experience and Christianity if taken philosophically can do an awesome job at balancing it

As a consequence of following Jordan, I like his forthright nature and laser focus on issues, I have just started to read Dostoyevsky's The Brothers Karamazov. As for religion it has played a fundamental role in many societies for moral and ethical behaviours, a role which today has reached it's use by date. The whole issue is very complex but can be simplified as Buddha did with his 8 fold path as a model for living.
