@MentORPHEUS Modern gym culture forgets that the gym simulates life rather than the other way around. To a gym-bro, saying "I pick up heavy shit for a living all day long" is like saying "I don't like the squat rack. Can I just swim instead?"
To be honest, lifting is a far more focused activity than real life. If your hobby is getting big and watching numbers go up, that's the right viewpoint. But the idea that some people just get/stay in shape to get girls, get better at a sport or martial art, perform better at their physical job, etc., and that working out isn't its own dedicated hobby and is just auxiliary to other hobbies is foreign to guys who work out for working out's sake.
@VintageNaginta You're overthinking this. GLO brought up Farmer's walks, I mention having an actual ranch, which implies organically carrying heavy shit around all day as the mission, with gains like grip strength a handy side effect.
@Gaylubeoil, You did get me checking out images of Farmer's Walk equipment. Some clever and interesting devices out there, also a lot of crudely built ones with little thought toward foot safety. 75% of them looked like a product liability attorney's wet dream.
@MentORPHEUS To answer your question there is a difference between the Reason why something happens and it's Cause.
Biopsyche deals with Reason. The Reason the bishop moves diagonally is because neurons fire in a person's brain making him move his hand and subsequently the Bishop.
The Cause of the bishop move is the rules of chess combined with the board state. Psycholoanalysis deals with cause.
To dismiss psychoanalysis on biopsychological grounds is Intellectualy equivalent to dismissing linguistics on biopsychological grounds. Let's study the brain to figure out X language not how its spoken!
So no it's not a challenge moving foward this exact issue is discusses aud nauseoum.
@GayLubeOil Once again you beat someone over the head with your extensive knowledge of Freud's best-of-the-early-20th-century writings, but I've never seen you bring 21st century level neuroscience to the table. "Latent content" necessarily filters through 2 levels of subjectivity. What breakthroughs could a modern Freud level person write with access to tools like electron microscopes and PET scans?
Consider this a challenge moving forward.
