- Tom explains what those are and how they each limit/constrain or expand our perception.
- How the size of your awareness is related to the size of your reality, and to the size of your perception.

- Understanding what constitutes a right action according to MBT
- An explanation that it is not about the action, but about the intent that makes it right or wrong

- The error of focusing on the problem versus the solution, for example with weight loss

- An explanation of different political/economic systems and why they are not the problem, but rather the people populating them
- The importance of evolving the quality of our consciousness to have the most efficient change within society
- Being able to see the system as a representation of us
How do we not negate what is within our systems (politics, economics, consumerism, healthcare, etc), while not being used by it, or kept “asleep” by it, or having our personal growth stunted by it? (55:00)
- Tom explains that it is always about personal accountability and intent—no one or no thing can force change upon us, or enslave us
