Complex and graspable

The ability to explain complex concepts, humorously and understandably is crucial for everyone to be able to consolidate them efficiently. Bob is a master in this activity. Have been recommended to this audio from a friend and enjoyed it every single second.

Eclectic Philosopher Extrodinare

Curiosity killed the cat, but it did not kill Wilson!
Most recognized for Playboy Forum editor, his anti- government views was on par with Hefner and beyond. Cybernetic nervous system philosopher and General Semanticist. He once called himself a guerrilla ontologist because... Well listen and learn!

Everything you think is true is just a thing your nervous system taught you, you should fire him and reimprint the whole damn reality tunnel.
