Discussions 1: Truth, Honesty, Limitations, Success Frames, and Agency with Andy Curzon and Noah Revoy

The World's First Blog With a Minimum IQ Requirement

Here I go again with my informal series of unscripted, serendipitous conversations and discussions with very smart, interesting people. Andy Curzon put the outline together 30 minutes before start time and we only arranged to do this yesterday afternoon.

I’m in the Sierras in California, Andy is in London, England, and Noah is near Lisbon, Portugal (where we’re chewing on arranging a conference next year).


  1. Truth vs. honesty; the yardstick for an opinion is honesty, not truth
  2. Integrating limitations (first: test them, then accept them, then integrate them)
  3. Frames for success given IQ, conscientiousness, and neuroticism limitations
    1. active listening;
    2. life as training one’s conscience;
    3. honing mastery;
    4. avoid pitfalls such as seeing everything through one frame (ideology) or falling into nihilism;
    5. step back from current affairs and see them as both news, and ideological battlegrounds;
    6. trusting people in a more sophisticated manner;
  4. Close talking of a final frame for success as bringing people together….suggest idea of a conference in Portugal.

I started writing Free The Animal in late 2003 as just a little thing to try. 20 years later, turns out I've written over 5,000 posts. I blog what I wish...from diet, health, lifestyle...to philosophy, politics, social antagonism, adventure travel, expat living, location and time independent—while you sleep— income by geoarbitrage, and food pics. I intended to travel the world "homeless," but the Covidiocy Panicdemic squashed that. I became an American expat living in Thailand. I celebrate the audacity and hubris to live by your own exclusive authority and take your own chances. ... I leave the toilet seat up. Read More
