This was my opening speech at The 21 Convention 2011 of Orlando Florida. It was the last speech I will ever give in Orlando at The 21 Convention (unless and until I decide to return the event there). It is also the last speech I will ever given at the dawn of The 21 Convention. Going forward I will be only making an appearance, and then letting the show get on a roll of it’s own.
Will I continue to speak? Certainly. However, not only am I not the best speaker, but I want to tackle more specific subjects that would not necessarily make sense coming from me, right at the open of an event.
Some subjects that are especially interesting to me are romantic love, declarationism, the ideal man, morality, self-esteem, and the philosophical/meta-physical foundations of proper exercise, nutrition, and healthy living.
For all the chatter done by the paleo community, it’s far too rare I see anyone mention “nature to be commanded is to be obeyed”. And need I mention the monstrous reduction by equation of biology and psychology? Maybe not, but I will anyway: paleo-psychology is an oxymoron.
And of exercise, I still find it fascinating how thoroughly and rigorously Bill DeSimone is able to nix out structural contradictions from exercise and create contradiction-free congruent workouts. Which is to say workouts congruent to and in line with reality.
Come to think of it, I don’t think I’ve seen a lick of this in the paleo community. It seems everyone’s mind shuts off after nutrition, much like people “like” to shut off and shut out the consequences of their political and moral philosophies.
Anyway, enjoy the speech. It picks up about mid way through. I personally was not enthusiastic about my performance, but I did get the comment multiple times that it was my best ever.
