Official: Q&A With Jordan

Jordan Lejuwaan (@jordan) 10 years, 4 months ago

Hey everyone! I’ve had a few people suggest that I host some Q&A sessions where anyone can ask me questions. So I’ve created this thread to allow people to post their questions and I will answer those with the most ‘loves’ via a Youtube video.

**Important: Please don’t use this thread to discuss the questions, or which ones are best. It should be purely a list of questions to making voting easier**

Feel free to ask anything! Nothing is off limits or inappropriate. I’m an open book.

**Edit 6/10: Wow awesome questions so far. I’m going to leave this thread open til late next week when I’ll have time to throw up a video of my answers. Keep the questions and votes coming!

**Edit 6/12: I’m hoping I’ll have time to answer these questions this weekend. Video always takes forever to get right.

Do you have any plans for the community beyond this website? Maybe something like an eventual commune, charitable organization, something of that nature… Something that houses or directs all the potential we have?

1. What kind of topics do you like on High Existence, (considering you’re not always following the ‘mission’) and how are they making you feel? No one is talking about what’s considered normal. No one dares to question or admit it. :)

2. Do you miss the old version of HE when they were a lot less meaningful topics and only good and interesting topics were discussed? It’s hard to provoke or stumble upon inspirational romantics right now. This is timeless –

3. How do you want the site to be perceived in the future?

What’s the ultimate goal/vision for the site? …And consequently the community that it has developed?

…ass or titties? ¯\_(ツ)_/¯

I am still questioning actually what potential do the users of this site have. The users that are active and have potential, don’t care much about it. :)

What else do you do outside of HighExistence?

Did you create the passions you have in your life, or did they just become your passions naturally?

oniverse (413) (@jneggleston) 10 years, 4 months ago ago

What were you majoring in/ planning to do career-wise before you dropped out of college?

Christian Chavez (49) (@sonofsaul) 10 years, 4 months ago ago

What was/is it that motivates you to have created and continue improving and expanding HE?

I do not know if you remember me but I was the person who quoted the Dandy Warhols a while back. I’m in the Navy now and since you have traveled a lot I was wondering where are some awesome and truly amazing places to go?

Eric (1,819)M (@blankey) 10 years, 4 months ago ago

In your opinion, where do ideas stem from? Internally or externally?

vishnu (1,235) (@vizznou) 10 years, 4 months ago ago

When was the scariest time of your life? i’m not asking what’s the scariest thing you ever did, but this question is more like, when was it that you needed the most courage to face and overcome a personal challenge? (and what was it?)

Martijn Schirp (112,780)A (@martijn) 10 years, 4 months ago ago

If you were completely unbound by social norms and constructions, what would you do?

If you could give me one advice, what would that be?

Who do you love the most?

Favourite aspect of HE?

Biggest dream with HE?

If you could arrange a big get together of all HEthens for a week, what would be the week consist of?

If you ever manage to create the community, what would it exist of? What would be a typical day for a typical person living there? Would you have private property? How would decision making work? If it would become a paradise, and many people would flock to it, more than the capacity it an bear, would you reject them or accept them, risking the whole community as a whole?

Favourite drug?

What are the awesome things we are going to do when we finally meet?

What are some of the things you strongly believed in could/would work for you but turned out to be a failure?

What do you think of the ongoing ecological crisis and the ever growing stronger distraction (war, media, false social problems like abortion/gay marriage) in the world?

Haha, bring the loves!

@martijn, You should split up your questions so people can vote for them individually :)

Ian (38) (@geryon89) 10 years, 4 months ago ago

do you believe in faustian relentless striving, or taoist passive acceptance of all things? and in your opinion is there a way to practically reconcile the two?

James (38) (@tanner) 10 years, 4 months ago ago

What have been some of your most intuitive moments, when life just flowed perfectly/ knew just what to do?

anniec (29) (@anniec) 10 years, 4 months ago ago

Are you in love? If not, have you ever been in love?

I would like to say that, I like the overall vibe of the site. One thing I’ve noticed though is there is more emphasis on the philosophic aspects of personal growth, and world change, but less emphasis on technical solutions, and practical application. Is this by design, or is it a result of the proclivities of the members of the site? How would you foster a more balanced approach to these issues? Do you see this site, solely, as a medium for the expansion of consciousness, or do you see it as a tool to directly implement change, or an aggregate of the two? Keep up the good work man. Either way this site fulfills a crucial function.

How have the use of drugs, specifically psychedelics, impacted your life/ changed you?… any revelations/ catharses/ or just plain fucking weird memories you’ve had while under the influence?

In your life journey thus far, what is the most significant thing you’ve learned?

yoinkie (1,498)C (@yoinkie) 10 years, 4 months ago ago

1) Am I too sexy for this shirt?

2) If you could time travel to see any event in the history of the universe, where would you go and what would you want to see?

Andrew A. (201) (@biga69) 10 years, 4 months ago ago

Is a world united under one group of leaders a good or a bad thing?

Carina (99) (@misssunbeam) 10 years, 4 months ago ago

If you could change just one thing that would affect the whole human population, what would it be?
