"Dr. Gerald Pollack, University of Washington professor of bioengineering, has developed a theory of water that has been called revolutionary. He has spent the past decade convincing worldwide audiences that water is not actually a liquid." Source 

He started his career studying muscles and gravity, which extremely piqued our interests. A topic Jeff & I want to explore on the next episode with Dr. Pollack.

At the end of the episode, we discuss some practical applications of his research on what you can do to improve yourself.

Kasper van der Meulen is an author and lifestyle adventurer. He went from being overweight, burnt out and unhappy, to developing superhuman focus, fitness, and personal freedom. He put himself through numerous experiments and challenges. He optimized his lifestyle, conquered the cold, ran ultramarathons on his bare feet, tested countless diets, read a ton of scientific literature and explored as many esoteric practices he could find. With over ten thousand hours of experience in teaching science, self-mastery and innovation, he decided to demystify and methodize these principles in a fun and bite-sized manner. As a final test of his focus, he wrote his book within 30 days, so that he would have to practice everything he preaches. 

His book “MindLift - Mental Fitness for the Modern Mind” became an Amazon best seller. Kasper now travels the world on a mission to teach others to be the healthiest, happiest and strongest version of themselves through transformative experiences and down-to-earth scientific understanding. He is the head-teacher of the Wim Hof Method Academy, he runs experiential retreats in extreme nature and he trains elite performers and professional athletes. All while keeping a playful and creative approach to self-optimisation.

"Truth is reflected in situational awareness and being present in the moment."
Mike & I initially met a few years ago through a mutual friend at a lecture I gave to a club volleyball team out in Virginia. Later we coincidentally met again at a continuing education course. Since then we have talked sporadically with extreme depth and every time I leave with many more questions to ask, a different understanding of the body and mind, as well as a big smile on my face. Every conversation has been extremely enjoyable and this one is no different.
