For me, this story highlighted less randomness and more personal bias.

Like most basic human energies, fear when being experienced emit vibrational frequency and can be induced or triggered in other people through any of the 5 senses. Very interesting episode.

Theres a lot I can sympathize with, but my feelings are twisted in all different directions here. Its a shame when the system can't benefit victims in the ways that it should, but the results of a callout are just completely and utterly cold. To be able to destroy a persons life and shun them from the community that they used to define who they were is almost worse than a jail sentence. Its a life sentence of another sort. And for such a thing to happen all through some stupid teenage mistake? People grow and change and though they should own up to past mistakes I dont believe they should have their lives torn down as if they were still the person that made it. Especially when those who started the callout does so with no remorse whatsoever about the person being called out. People make lots of stupid mistakes and people cant be perfect and yet theres people coming up in this world that seem to want that from others and are ready to shun anyone who makes even the simplest mistake knowingly or not in the coldest way possible.

the theory that we 'learn' our emotions or that we need concepts to have full emotions like anger and sadness is interesting but it doesn't really make sense if you consider that babies are born without this experience yet show a lot of raw emotion including anger, sadness, fear and love. is there any explanation for this? also why did Amanda and Tommy, two people who had grown up learning that you have to control emotions have such different responses in adult life?

I'm a Buddhist and door 3 really truly works. Martin's story is simply inspiring. Thank you.

It just goes to show that social justice without compassion for both victim and abuser will always bring about injustice. The call-out is a powerful tool, however it must not be carried by bias and ill-informed statements.

if the movement of a snake becomes faster because of the fear they sense in the human as said in (shreckstoff). then what would happen if the same snake is in presence of S.M(the women with no emotion as fear).

Fantastic pocast! always gets you thinking and brings new insights to everyday things you would have thought of before. The episode on the relality TV show in Somalia is one of my favourites

These kids essentially do not believe in compassion and use social issues as a club to fight for personal promotion. So this is the face of the new young ghastly. Yet Invisabilia brings up an interesting question- do the ends justify the means?

people's fear of snakes is odd too me, as is there fear of insects etc. The majority of species on the planet can harm humans in some way so why not be afraid of everything? Peoples fear of things most likely begins in childhood and is reinforced often by those around them or is introduced and reinforced by those around them.
