Here's another thing I became very interested in rules, and the thing is that if you leave things to your own judgment every time you like it to fail, Yeah, I was, every time I was gonna say, I hope he doesn't say, that's the best way to do it because that's their strategy is not that for me, right? Yeah. But the moment, you have a rule, you basically have taken some decision out of your mind. And actually, there is an interesting story, there's a in Orthodox, Jewish scholar, they call a layout destler. Who said that, if you take all the Jewish people and you ordered them from the least religious person on the left of the most religious person on the right, and that's true for all religions. One of the differences is they have more and more rules. Rules that dictate their lives that are outside of their consideration, right? So if your secular person, you have to decide about everything. Yes. What do you dress? And what you eat and so on, as you become more and more religious religion, doesn't regulate everything in life, but it regulates more and more sure, you don't have a question of what you're going to do Saturday, especially, if you're a Hasidic Jew or Gare, you know, that's act care. Super strict. Yeah. The decision has been carried out for you, and it's kind of interesting. When I travel, I sometimes try to meet Chief rabbis. I'm very curious about religion like think about, you know, your interest in startups. What are the most successful? Social institutions out there. Sure. Yeah and I'm using the word successful in its terms of survival, right? In terms of necessarily positive impacts on human life through our religion. Yeah, absolutely clearly, right? Yeah, quietly. What's working? So well, so there's lots of things guilt. There's lots of things about religion. There are complex organizations.
The More Religious Someone Is, the More Their Life Is Regulated By Rules
