    Ben again with the “god” thing.. and relating it to good, even worse.

    if one were to define the source of all life, one would be limiting it..

    you are projecting your own dark side onto others, thinking they must be “selfish” like me

    growth is coming from mastering to stay centered in face of great goodness or sickening evil

    it gives you reference points, no need to demonize the devil, think about it

  2. Bob says:

    I take 500 dlpa first thing in the a.m. taking Wed and Sun off in order to not have a feedback loop and it’s cured restless legs syndrome.

    Hi Ben, I just listened to this episode, Q&A 469 on 3/16/24, and thank you so much for answering my above question! I’ve been using all of Andreas Wecker’s seed oils for several weeks. After consulting with his colleague, Katja, I’ve been using the Flaxseed Oil before bed for better sleep; and after seeing Andreas on a podcast/Youtube with Brian Peskin (found here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=o4tfDppY5xg ), I’ve stopped using fish oil capsules because they state are actually counterproductive) and now rely on the flaxseed oil the same benefits. I’ll test my levels in a few months to check the results, but it would be great if you would interview Peskin–he makes quite a compelling case for the harms of fish oil (but to continue eating good fish/seafood. Some links to his stuff: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=R-lcpGpyNeQ https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ExSiuF8AEP0
    Thanks again!
