The Tao of Kung Fu #1 - "Fear is the only darkness."


  1. Not quite the clip I was looking for in regards to comparing stoicism and taoism, but if you watch the first clip all the way through the next clip up has a reference to one of the questions in the Fight Club presentations.

  2. I like what you said here:
    "But maybe Stoics know emotions are just our physical body’s learned reaction to outside influences. By letting those reactions alter our actions or existence, we are allowing those outside influences to control our lives. Stoic’s acknowledge the deterministic influence and seek to limit it. By limiting our reactions we are taking control back of our life. This may be the first step in obtaining or regaining our free will.
    Well stated!
