Welcome to Monday’s News on the March – The week that was in my digital world.

Return to a Baseline of Dopamine – Jocko Willink & Andrew Huberman
Podcast at Jocko Podcast

This week’s News on the March features two fascinating video excerpts from Jocko Willink’s podcast. Jocko is a retired United States Navy officer who served in the Navy SEALs and is a former member of SEAL Team 3. His guest Andrew Huberman, Ph.D., is a neuroscientist and tenured Professor in the Department of Neurobiology at the Stanford University School of Medicine. (Watch video excerpt here)

Someone commented in You tube about this short interview:
I was an AD (aircraft mechanic) for 8 years, including some time on a carrier flight deck. They put a lot of time into the details. They’re showing the hazards of the fight deck, how the nose gear attached to the cat, the violence of a trap and arrest, even when Mav was explaining how to run ground air to start the F14. For me, that blew me away. Things like that were put in there for guys like me. Even showing the E2 Hawkeye (my birds) and how it relays information. They NEVER show how that works. This movie was awesome! – nickfrito

The Power of Observing, Alan Watts 4 hour Lecture
Lecture at Insight Fields

In the last couple of days I have been listening to Alan Watts lectures. He was an English writer, speaker and self-styled “philosophical entertainer”, known for interpreting and popularising Japanese, Chinese and Indian traditions of Buddhist, Taoist, and Hindu philosophy for a Western audience.

He discusses in this lecture the importance of watching your thoughts; be a witness to them impartially and not being the subject of them.
‘Don’t be carried away by your own stream of consciousness..Be objective…Who is this Self, behind oneself? How to get grace by your power and how to get out of your own way.‘ (Watch lecture here)
