Show Notes

In this episode I talk about an idea I've been exploring for a while now: That we're all made up of different parts, and how they often conflict with each other.

There was a time when I thought the best way to deal with the undesirable parts is to just eliminate them, to get rid of them. Now, rather than looking at an isolated part, I try to first understand: What's the function this part fulfills in the larger system?
