The Will To Find Out

Philosopher Bertrand Russell wasn't so much interested in the "will to believe." Rather, he preferred "the will to find out, which is the exact opposite."

Your assignment is to try his approach. Regard it as an experiment that you'll have fun with.

For a few days, refuse to jump to any conclusions whatsoever. Be skeptical of all theories about why things are the way they are. See if you can thrive without clinging to any ideology.

Instead, be bursting with the intention to discover the raw truth, no matter where that leads you, and even if it seems to contradict your rules to live by.

Nice quote. Reminds me of the Gnostic maxim of "Listen to those who seek truth; avoid those who claim they found it."

Hi there! Just wanted to say it's good to see you back online. I used to love reading your reports and had read each one of them as you always struck me as being very different from the average community PUA. It was a very pleasant surprise to see some new posts from your blog in Google reader today.
All the best for your future journeys and endeavours ..

Pulling out Bertrand Russell, fuck yeah!

I am a skilled seducer and even I recently decided to put all my knowledge and stuff aside and start from scratch doing just the very basics.

It's funny how many little things that seem so subtle will have a dramatic effect on your game.
