Bookmarked I Read One Book 100 Times Over 10 Years… Here Are 100 Life-Changing Lessons I Learned by Ryan Holiday (Medium)
All the things that people do hallucinogens to explore, you can also do while sober as a judge. It just takes work.
Ryan Holiday reflects on the impact of Marcus Aurelius’ Mediation in light of his new book, The Daily Stoic. One of the interesting points Holiday discusses is the influence of translation:

All we have now are translations of translations — no original writing from his hand survives. It all could have been arranged in an entirely different format originally (Did all the books have titles originally — as the first two do? Are those titles made up? Were they all numbered originally? Or were even the breaks between thoughts added in by a later translator?)

This comes back to the work of Walter Benjamin and the Task of the Translator.

Another idea that he discusses is the ability to explore a side of life that many assume is only possible through the use of drugs. He explains that this just takes effort. This reminds me of Jack Antonoff’s avoidance of drugs:

Drugs spin certain wheels in your head that are already spinning
