Are You a Prisoner of Society? – Joe Rogan (Video)

Are You a Prisoner of Society? - Joe Rogan (Video) | Third Monk image 3

Life has found many ways to express itself over time. Now we are arriving at a point in our unified existence where many of us are questioning the logic of current societal values.

Do we really need to create a feeling of scarcity that does not exist in order to give false worth to material objects?

Is making money as important as making a creative breakthrough that offers a piece of yourself to society?

The questions go on and the feeling that a major shift in the way we view life is prevalent.

I currently hold a job in order to pay for my way of life and I do wonder if I can find a way to express myself to the fullest and feed myself while doing so, it is a fine line — it is possible! But I haven’t hit that point in my life yet but I move towards it everyday.

This Joe Rogan society trap rant strikes a chord and resonates with my current mentality. He lays it out on the table, simple and clean.

Do you contribute to society or do you merely exist within it?

Redban’s Heroic Dose – JRE Podcast

Redban delves deep into the aether in search of knowledge and adventure.

He recounts his experience on the JRE podcast, with comedian Joey Diaz and host Joe Rogan providing color commentary.

Heroic Doses have fascinated me since I first heard Terrence McKenna mention it in his lectures. I don’t have extensive experience with it myself, however a friend of mine swears he was in the presence of the Original Mighty Morphin Power Rangers during his Heroic Dose.

A Visit to the Observatory is a Psychedelic Trip – Joe Rogan (Video)

A Visit to the Observatory is a Psychedelic Trip - Joe Rogan (Video) | Third Monk image 1

Joe Rogan talks about one of the best psychedelic experiences he’s ever had that didn’t involve a drug. The elevation of the Keck Observatory in Hawaii is so high, you can only reach it by driving up and past the clouds.

You have this incredible view of the stars, where you see the whole milky way like a movie. I was staring into the impossible, I remember being upset that I couldn’t see this every night.

That’s up there all the time, and by not seeing that and just making it this blank screen, you lose the feel for what’s really going on.

When you’re on top of an observatory and you look out at this incredible view of the stars, you realize we are really in space right now, on a big organic spaceship. – Joe Rogan Experience #371 with Rick Doblin, Founder of  Multidisciplinary Association for Psychedelic Studies (MAPS).

Astronauts that go into space and look back down at earth experience the overview effect. The view from above causes a shift in consciousness and a reminder of how much wonder exists in the universe.

Don't Smoke Me Out With Garbage Weed - Joey Diaz (Video) | Third Monk image 1

A classic Joey Diaz moment on the Joe Rogan Experience Podcast gets animated. Joey is tired but still makes the long late night drive to Joe’s studio to record an episode.

The pre game ritual is to stimulate the mind by getting high as fuck. Joey isn’t too happy when the Susquehanna smoke session is over, and he’s not as stoned as he expects to be.

Neil deGrasse Tyson Funks the Universe, Psychedelic Music Video | Third Monk

Neil deGrasse Tyson‘s interview on the Joe Rogan Experience Podcast is remixed into a funky psychedelic music video about the universe. (Animated by Andy Greenhaw)

In our experience, the Universe never makes anything in ones. When we thought Earth was it. No, Earth is one of many planets. The Sun is! No, the Sun is one of a billion stars in the Milky Way. The Milky Way! No, no there are a hundred other billion galaxies in the Universe.

The Universe? Well we’ve been there before. Am I going to say there’s only one? Because the trend says more. So maybe there’s this Multiverse.

Let’s just continue to push the question a little deeply. If this “entity” never makes anything in ones, then why would it only make one Multiverse? Maybe there are multiple Multiverses.

A Society Without Cannabis Lacks Unfiltered Levels of Perception – Carl Sagan

A Society Without Cannabis Lacks Unfiltered Levels of Perception - Carl Sagan | Third Monk

carl-sagan-cannabis-perceptionI am convinced that there are genuine and valid levels of perception available with cannabis (and probably with other drugs) which are, through the defects of our society and our educational system, un-available to us without such drugs. – Carl Sagan

Joe Rogan Podcast – Carl Sagan’s Belief of Cannabis Being Our Connection to the Universe

Joe Rogan talks about Carl Sagan’s essay on cannabis where he revealed that some of his best insights came from smoking marijuana.

The Marijuana Majority, Quotes From Public Supporters of Decriminalization

The Marijuana Majority, Quotes From Public Supporters of Decriminalization | Third Monk image 16

Marijuana Majority exists to help more people understand the simple fact that supporting commonsense solutions like regulating marijuana sales and ending marijuana arrests are mainstream positions and that there’s no reason those who support reform should be afraid to say so.


Morgan Freeman, Academy Award-Winning Actor

It’s just the stupidest law possible… You’re just making criminals out of people who aren’t engaged in criminal activity. And we’re spending zillions of dollars trying to fight a war we can’t win! We could make zillions, just legalize it and tax it like we do liquor. It’s stupid – The Daily Beast


Danny Devito, It’s Always Sunny in Philadelphia

Even if one doesn’t smoke pot one has to see the benefits of decriminalising it! – Twitter


Joe Rogan, Comedian & UFC Commentator

People say, ‘Well you can abuse marijuana’… You can abuse cheeseburgers too, you don’t go around closing Burger King… If people…commit crimes while on those drugs they should in fact be punished, but you can’t punish someone for something that hurts no one. – YouTube


Rosario Dawson, Actress

I’m for the legalization of marijuana, absolutely… We’ve got a lot of things that we need to be putting our focus and attention on and it’d be really great to take it off of joints. – CNN


Carl Sagan, Astrophysicist

Is it rational to forbid patients who are dying from taking marijuana as a palliative to permit them to gain body weight and to get some food down?… That’s a highly irrational official government position – YouTube


Elijah Wood, Actor Wilfred

The whole notion that marijuana is illegal is past the point of ridiculousness... To be honest, I’m not really much of a pot smoker… But I’ve always been an advocate. I just feel it should be decriminalized. – High Times


Quentin Tarantino, Filmmaker

It’s slavery… All the reasons that they have for keeping this going are the all same reasons they had for keeping slavery going after the whole world had pretty much decided that it was immoral. It’s an industry. – George Stroumboulopoulos Tonight


Bill Maher, Comedian & TV Host

It’s like gay marriage. These things that we believe are third rails, and then somebody has the guts to challenge it and they find out, ‘Wow, the American people actually are ahead of us. – HBO’s “Real Time with Bill Maher


Seth Rogen, Actor

There are probably 400 people getting murdered at this second, and these two cops are taking an hour to write up my court summons for smoking a joint... That just seemed so…ridiculous to me. – Playboy


Gavin Newsom, Lieutenant Governor of California

These [recreational marijuana users] are incredibly upstanding citizens: Leaders in our community, and exceptional people. Increasingly, people are willing to share how they use it and not be ashamed of it… These laws just don’t make sense anymore. It’s time for politicians to come out of the closet on this. – New York Times


Brad Pitt, Actor

The drug war is actually being used to hold a portion of our society down... It’s criminal in itself… The only way to end the war on drugs is to take the profit out of it… We have to look at the what-if-everything-was-legal and people were allowed to make their own choices. – Huffington Post


Bill Clinton, 42nd President

I think that most small amounts of marijuana have been decriminalized in some places, and should be. We really need a re-examination of our entire policy on imprisonment. – Rolling Stone


Snoop Dogg, Rapper

Go to Amsterdam where it is legal and you see that the crime rate is nonexistent. There are people riding on bicycles being happy and it’s because of the environment that’s provided by the legalization of marijuana. Hollywood Reporter


Jack Nicholson, Academy Award-Winning Actor

The illicit drug market funds terrorism and — this is a huge problem in America — fuels the foreign gangs. More than 85 percent of men incarcerated in America are on drug-related offenses. It costs $40,000 a year for every prisoner. If they were really serious about the economy there would be a sensible discussion about legalization. – Daily Mail


David Duchovny, Actor

I’m all for legalization. I don’t think it would lead to any more use. Everybody I know, if they want to, has smoked pot. The fact that it’s illegal doesn’t stop anybody I know, so why not allow everybody to benefit from it? It would be billions of dollars of tax revenue. –
