Every now and then some extremely wise person or people will put together an absolutely brilliant description of the Truth. Here, David Foster Wallace uses his genius to teach us how the world actually works—in under ten minutes. And some people were kind enough to visualise David’s concepts for you. He was a brilliant writer that I recommend you check out. And don’t forget to buy his books if you can afford it. His share goes to good causes.
If you want to know what students study with me, this is the first part of the class (the practical part–in a very small nut-shell. But you’ll get the idea. You can live a life of death by a thousand cuts, or you can be saved by a thousand opportunities for appreciation and gratitude. The choice is yours.
Enjoy. (Trust me, it’ll be easy.)
With many thanks to The Glossary for their production of the speech.

Scott McPherson is an Edmonton-based writer, public speaker, and mindfulness facilitator who works with individuals, companies and non-profit organisations locally and around the world.
Following a serious childhood brain injury Scott McPherson unwittingly spent his entire life meditating on the concepts of thought, consciousness, reality and the self. This made him as strange to others as they were to him. Seeing the self-harm people created with their own overthinking, Scott dedicated part of his life to helping others live with greater awareness. He is currently a writer, speaker and mindfulness instructor based in Edmonton, AB, where he finds it strange to write about himself in the third person.
