10. Social freedom & the value of community with Ashley Bloom
Sep 3 15
I think whatever you put energy and time into should be awesome people, developing yourself to be better at relating to awesome people and doing projects, businesses and work that is useful to the world from your point of reference" - Ashley Bloom
Ashley Bloom grew up in relative affluence with a younger brother, single mother and lots of her odd live-in partners influencing him. He was precocious in limited niches, eccentric and very sensitive.
A few years after high school, he describes himself as being a jaded nihilist - however went through a period of growth sparked by travel. In 2009, he took LSD for the first time which profoundly changed his understanding of the human brain. 10 months later, he had a existential meltdown, recovered and exploded upward from low utility cycles of fear-based living. After experimenting with other psychedelic's, Ashley unearthed a new perspective for himself on the multiplaner nature of reality and coupled with experiences gained from solo-travel - he learned multitudes about responsibility, self-directed learning and deep sources of passion.
Ashley's life has become an extreme commitment to being the best possible expert-generalist. He's on a life-long journey towards mastery in many resonant fields of skill and knowledge, where he tries to get into the best people, projects and wider missions available at any juncture. His next adventure lies in Israel, where he's heading to study and work in high-tech product management.
