Float Tanks are an amazing way to settle into a meditative state. The one I goes to, and the one Mark is going to is Float North County. If you want to try it, give it a dozen tries before you judge it. I loved the first one but not everyone does. While you’re in the tank, you’re entirely relaxed, and your muscles aren’t engaging at all to stabilize because your senses are entirely deprived, so it’s very rejuvenating.
“How do you concentrate your mind? Focus. Concentration is focusing for longer and longer periods of time. So we bring our awareness to one thing, and then we hold our awareness on that one thing for longer and longer periods of time, and you practice that” -Mark Divine
Remember your past to help you in the present, remember your future differently to help you in the present. Imagine the progress you make in the 20 years, and then imagine if you had all of that power now.
Mark Divine’s chants for doing burpees when he’s travelling, and want’s to move.

Mark felt a little bit like a pet, being paraded around. He said it was nice, but it feels like a dungeon. Everything is connected, all the halls and corridors. Mark was following Claudia, the congresswoman, down past this hall past all these reporters, who were curiously looking at Mark, wondering if he was famous. Mark found it very interesting to see who was there to be there, and who was playing roles. Congressman wearing cowboy boots and a hat, obviously from Texas etc.
Politicians have to represent the lowest common denominator of their constituency, so they merge their identities into it, and it’s pretty clear to see.
There is a possibility that the rich are going to become superhuman and dominate, there’s also the possibility of the expansion that we solve all the world’s issues and, knowledge, creativity, and coding will all be the skills of the future. We will have food from 3d printing, much less agricultural impact.
