Hello friendly friends.
Here is episode 4 of the Bold and Determined Podcast.
In the last episode we discussed the banning of Alex Jones and Roosh V., and the possibility of socialism in America.
This week we go into some esoteric topics like ancient religious documents, what's the deal with spirits or higher beings, and I received many questions about the all-meat/carnivore diet.
Before we get started…

Opening thoughts: We have no answer for the past. We have amnesia. We yearn for truth and knowledge. Our history has been decimated. Our libraries burned. Our ancient relics “rebuilt” or burned to the ground. Television replaced oral history and we stopped learning our own fairy tales. Knowledge is power, but we seem to be powerless. Imagine if you could spend a year at the library in Alexandria, oh the knowledge you would have.
“There is only one good, knowledge, and one evil, ignorance.” -Socrates

Hey Vic, What are you thoughts on the Emerald Tablets of Thoth/other ancient texts? Do you feel that they can provide a lighted path for those seeking greatness?
To give you an idea of the Emerald Tablets, here is a short quote:
“Far, through strange spaces, have I journeyed
into the depth of the abyss of time,
until in the end all was revealed.
Know ye that mystery is only mystery
when it is knowledge unknown to man.
When ye have plumbed the heart of all mystery,
knowledge and wisdom will surely be thine.
Seek ye and learn that TIME is the secret
whereby ye may be free of this space.
Long have I, WISDOM, sought wisdom;
aye, and shall seek of eternity's end
for know that ever before me receding
shall move the goal I seek to attain.
Even the LORDS of the CYCLES
know that not yet have THEY reached the goal,
For with all of their wisdom,
they know that TRUTH ever grows.
Once, in a past time, I spoke to the Dweller.
Asked of the mystery of time and space.
Asked him the question that surged in my being,
saying: O Master, what is time?
Then to me spoke HE, the Master:
Know ye, O Thoth, in the beginning
there was VOID and nothingness,
a timeless, spaceless, nothingness.
And into the nothingness came a thought,
and It filled the VOID.
There existed no matter, only force,
a movement, a vortex, or vibration
of the purposeful thought
that filled the VOID.
And I questioned the Master, saying:
Was this thought eternal?
And answered me the DWELLER, Saying:
In the beginning, there was eternal thought,
and for thought to be eternal, time must exist.
So into the all-pervading thought
grew the LAW of TIME.
Aye time which exists through all space,
floating in a smooth, rhythmic movement
that is eternally in a state of fixation.
Time changes not,
but all things change in time.
For time is the force
that holds events separate,
each in its own proper place.
Time is not in motion,
but ye move through time
as your consciousness
moves from one event to another.
Aye, by time yet exist, all in all,
an eternal ONE existence.
Know ye that even though in the time ye are separate,
yet still are ONE, in all times existent.
Ceased then the voice of the DWELLER,
and departed I to ponder on time.
For knew I that in these words lay wisdom
and a way to explore the mysteries of time.”
Leo asks… (10:05)
I have gotten bigger, mainly through exercise, but diet is nonexistent. Everyone has noticed it, but I have more of a burly lumberjack look rather than a Greek statue. At some point I lost weight but I got too small, so I decided to stay big, but I also have fat on my belly and love handles.
Long story short: how to stay big but look like a Greek statue? Is it as simple as having a low carb diet (tried that for 8 months, got smaller)?
Take muscle preserving and muscle growing supplements while you diet. If you diet naturally, you will lose both fat and muscle. The muscle has to be preserved by an outside ingredient to keep it. Meat is meat and the body will eat it all, whether it is fat or muscle. The hormones that control the muscle must be increased and turned on to keep the muscle in the absence of calories. Take Red Growth next time you diet and your results will be a whole different story.
Stan asks… (13:28)
What are the benefits of drinking raw milk and raw eggs?
Hozzy asks… (14:38)
What are your thoughts on astrology?
What are your thoughts on the Freemasons? Would you consider becoming one? Why or why not?
John asks… (16:53)
Can you keep muscle mass you gained during steroid cycle after you stop using them?
Alex asks… (18:30)
Victor, my question is this. I am generally passive about life. I have been reading your blog, been going to the gym, also hitting on girls, doing business but sometimes I feel like my mind is just floating around. My libido is very low. Couldn’t care less if I get laid or not. I avoid tensions and when in social situations I don’t care for others very much.I usually am relaxed and not participating ina conversation. I’m too self involved with my relaxed state. My opinions are not strong and I can’t hold a conversation. One of my friends got in a fight today.. I couldn’t imagine myself doing that. I haven’t punched anyone even in my dream. But I know this can’t be normal because a man needs to be dynamic and to make things happen.
Also it’s very bizarre but I’d rather stay home and jerk off than have sex. 100 times better.
How do I get out of this? My friends say they would love to be as relaxed as I am but I just don’t feel like a man. I hate being this way and I want to change it.
Kyle C asks… (20:34)
I lived in Thailand for a year myself and I found myself nodding in agreement with all of your reasons why it’s not a place I would move back to, mainly the pollution and vast cultural differences.
You mentioned you’ve been traveling for a year and a half or so. What’s been your favorite new spot that you’ve checked out and why?
Also, has Ms. Pride been accompanying you on your travels and back to America? Your “Return of the Firestarter” post is still one of your all-time best in my opinion.
Nirantha asks… (24:36)
Dear Vic, do you listen to records, what kind of records do you recommend?
Gerasimos asks… (25:20)
I moved to another city and a new handball team. After playing despite them telling me to get out the old guys there gave me a talk about how I should give them more play time DURING TRAINING because they’re the ones playing the games (said it in a really aggressive manner). However that wouldn’t allow me to improve as a player. What do I do next?
Mike asks… (25:46)
Hey Vic, how do I manage endless anger? I don't really know where it comes from… I feel like I am born angry. I am not angry at particular things, but sometimes with myself. Other than that, most of the times I am angry for no reason. Being angry does not let me act clearly, focus and work on my goals. I go to the gym almost every day but that is not enough for my anger to go away. I also feel that I fear something that I do not actually know what that is. Any practices for fear and anger?
James asks… (28:27)
Have you used any of the penis enhancement exercises from Good Looking Loser? Do you have any thoughts on penis enhancement, especially for young men?
Levi asks… (28:41)
What do you think about A.I. and the effects on: Low skilled labor, High Skilled labor (B&D) and privacy / freedom?
Mike asks… (30:10)
I’d be interested to hear what your typical daily diet is. I’m going to give the carnivore diet a go and would like a rough framework to begin from. Ex. Breakfast 3-6 eggs, lunch 1/2 baked chicken breast, diner large steak, pork chop, or fish. Snacks, jerky, hb eggs, sardines… Also, I assume you use oils, butter to cook with.
Alex asks… (31:56)
Do you do any calorie counting or just eat until full?
DNF asks… (33:13)
Hey Victor, what are the best foods for boosting libido on the carnivore diet? Would you recommend having all the meat raw or is having some cooked meat ok?
Joseph asks… (34:07)
Would it be effective to build muscle and size eating the carnivore diet? Even for someone who requires 5000 calories per day to even gain weight. My current diet consists of potatoes, sweet potatoes, meat, fish, eggs etc. I cut out grains and feel my digestion is better, however would only eating meat make me feel better and also get stronger and gain weight at the same time?
Guillaume asks… (35:40)
You said in the podcast, that rice will make you sick but do you know that 2 billions of people eat rice every day?
And one billion people smoke cigarettes.
Rice is eaten in a part of the world where human misery and want is very visible. It is not something to be mimicked.
Chez Cantera… (37:20)
What is your recommendations for someone who has pre hypertension? All the info on the web say to stay away from red meat. I know you’re a big advocate on red meat and animal fats. Not sure on what’s a good diet plan to cure hypertension. Also what’s your workout/lifestyle tips for someone trying to cure hypertension/diabetes.
Sunday777 asks… (39:25)
Victor ? How can I stop masturbating if I keep experiencing wet dreams? It leads me to masturbate. Please help me.
Ulysses asks… (40:33)
Do you think that “love” as we were taught it is (that warm fuzzy feeling that makes you want a girl so bad – and in the movies, she wants you too LOL) is a total lie?
The more experience I get with women the more it seems that when I act like they’re my sex slaves (thank you for the accurate advice btw) the more they dig it. If I get that warm fuzzy feeling and I tell them how much I appreciate them, it tends to backfire. They lose interest. I feel I have to manipulate them sometimes, using cock and whip, as they say in my country.
It seems I need to discipline myself, have feelings but not express them. Or maybe I’m not obsessed with my vision enough. What do you think?
MoneyStudy asks… (42:40)
Do you still believe the U.S. is like the fall of Rome? I don’t feel it every day but certainly every year it gets a little bit harder to see my country move to in the wrong direction, I put the expiration date at 2060 at the latest.
A country is the people. When the demographics change, the country disappears. The people are too preoccupied to notice their own demise. This thing has happened in history countless times.
According to The Fate of Empires, an essay laying out the life cycle of an empire, the average lifespan of an empire is 250 years. The life cycle of an empire is broken down into six ages. They are:
- The Age of Pioneers
- The Age of Conquest
- The Age of Commerce
- The Age of Affluence
- The Age of Intellectualism
- The Age of Decadence
Guess which age we are in.
Brad asks… (45:50)
Victor, are you going to do anything with Mike Cernovich at any time? Loved your podcasts that you guys did together
Alex P. asks… (45:01)
You have previously stated that most likely you will not have children. Why?
Damon asks… (45:07)
Do you ever think you’ll start a family?
Also, other than your blog and podcast do you have any other forms of income?
Nick G. asks… (46:58)
What are your thoughts about the current state of blogging? Do you think that the explosion of youtubing and podcasting has almost made blogs obsolete? Can written word compete with actual video and audio? If you first started B&D today in 2018 would it be possible to grow a large following/income if you did nothing but blog?
What do Christians, Muslims, and Jews worship? Words.
Jesus asks… (49:57)
I’ve got past most of my social anxiety but I still get anxiety when going to new places and events. Is there any way to work on this?
For social anxiety I recommend you place yourself in social situations repeatedly to get used to it and at first you can use Red Monkey to ease your social anxiety.
Julius asks… (52:05)
Hello Vic I am 22 and teaching english in Vietnam and I am starting to really miss America. but I know if I go back ill have to move back home with my parents. How do I move past this?
Erick asks… (53:00)
Hi Vic, What do you think about the guys who use prostitutes?
R.H. asks… (53:10)
What is your opinion about Hemingway and his works?
If Hemingway were alive, do you think he would have a successful career as a writer in this day and age when people generally don’t have the patience to read even blog articles?
Delroy asks… (54:12)
Hey Vic! I’m in my early 30’s and I work in real estate. I am ready to marry, have children, and live a simpler life, however as you know, the US is not a good place to raise families anymore.
I am considering moving to Russia. Russia is not perfect, but at least boys can be boys, girls can be girls, and the state supports Russian families – they even pay parents allowances for 18 months after they have their first child.
The biggest problem with moving would be giving up my profession here. Do you think things will improve in the US, or should I start a new life abroad?
Otávio asks… (57:00)
How can we (reliably) find grass-fed food around the world?
There are a lot of mischievous practices which lead us to think something is natural, grass-fed, or related but in reality is something else entirely. You mentioned meeting the farmers personally and learning about who they supply. But maybe there is something interesting you’d like to add to that.
BecomingStronger asks… (58:12)
Hi, since I'm building more discipline I gained more self-confidence and strength, but people who know my weak person still belittle me and order me around especially at work. I don't know how to react to this, since I don’t want to be submissive to anyone anymore, I do the tasks if they talk to me with respect not from above.
So how do I get more respect from people? And how can I become an entrepreneur if I don’t have specialized knowledge. (I work in the accountant department).
Floriao asks… (1:00:10)
Do you use any nootropics to date? I am mostly sitting alone playing video games as a job (eSports) and can tired of playing sometimes after 8+ hours. Staying awake one of the biggest concerns. I wanna get far up away from my opposition/competitors and put more time in, how would you do that?
I recommend Red Coffee, Red Focus, and Red Burner – but be careful to take at least 2 days off all supplements each week. Performance enhancing supplements are a means to an end (the end is better performance) but they should not be an everyday way of life.
Sebastian Heart asks… (1:02:00)
What do you think about drinking blood, eating other humans, and cannibalism?
Also, do you believe in spirits and higher beings?
Must read book: The Siren Call of the Hungry Ghosts
Alex asks… (1:17:30)
What’s a reasonable conversion rate for eBooks out of every 100 page visits. Do you track the metrics for your eBooks? If so, do you use Google Analytics or something else? Thanks!
Email questions… (1:18:30)
I read your blog everyday before starting my day. I hit the gym everyday, no rest days, no cheat days, Body of a Spartan has helped me a lot. The main problem is not about my fitness, it about my parents, I want to start my own journey in my life. My parents are too dominating and I have no independence. I'm just 18 and they forced me to do a job.
You said about moving, problem is they have my passport, they control my finances, of ever I want money I've to go beg for my own money. Any idea how can I cope up with this kind of abuse. Truth is this blog has become my number one mentor in my life.
Brock way asks… (1:20:10)
Keep it Up Victor – Want to thank you for your support, since I was 16 I started reading your blog and when I think of who influenced me most towards how I am/live now you're the first. I now make a living online and live on my own terms at 19. You’re a legend!
I have a question about Building a brand. I’m just about to start my blog (Self development + Money) and was wondering what your thoughts are on linking your domain name to Instagram, YouTube and other social media accounts. Does this matter? I was thinking about just linking it to my own personal Name because its easier.. What are your thoughts on this?
Joe asks… (1:21:52)
