10 thoughts on “The Ultra Interview”
Hi HG, I am your YouTube fan for a quite a while. Recently I have subscribed to your blog, I absolutely love your work. Is the silhouette in The Ultra interview you yourself? I believe you are really handsome.
Kristin Sinema is a typical politician who is doing politics – triangulating to get the most out of a situation she can. She will never get re-elected if she goes along with the leftist agenda 100%. She is following in John McCain’s footsteps.
Her wacky and inappropriate dress is a warning sign, but it appeals to her wacky supporters. Her political shrewdness is surprising if you simply judge her by her looks.
Once a politician gets in power they never want to walk away. They always want the perks and power that their elected office lavishes upon them.
Good interview! It started inconspicuously – 10 minutes of mutual sweetening, I wanted to turn off 😊 But then it got really interesting. I listened very carefully as HG “flowed” 😊
I am glad if characters from literature will be discussed, even on the basis of film reproductions. Very interesting to me.
HG, I am very curious, why is this arctic place so important to you?
1. Have you already given the answer to this question in some material, will we never know? (the second option is also a satisfactory answer).
2. And the second question, do you associate this arctic place with death?
And one more thing. In some movies, by the blink, something happens to your breath (rarely). It always makes me wonder. I have 3 options, but I don’t ask because I don’t expect an answer. In any case, I find it touching.
Tolstoy… Yesss. He is a very important figure for me. My iron literary trio are: Leo Tolstoy, Fyodor Dostoyevsky and Thomas Mann. I love. This “holy trinity” has had a great influence on who I am. Of course, there are also many, many, really many other authors that I value very much. I write down all the quotes that “seduced” me, made me stop, made me think. Quotations from the works of these authors are the most numerous.
Tolstoy was certainly a narcissist. There is no doubt about it 😊 His life is as exciting as his books. I also love reading letters, diaries, appeals. Wife of Tolstoy – a wonderful woman. Her diaries of their marriage are an epitaph of empathy. Crazy relationship 😊 Even while dying, he treated her so cruelly… Certainly, her contribution to his literature was enormous (they agreed, to write notes to each other or exchange their diaries). These two, with his hands and mind, created something extraordinary! Despite the very ungrateful fate of life, especially for her…
Few quotes from Tolstoy:
– “He came downstairs, trying not to stare at her for too long, just as you don’t look at the sun. But without even looking at her, he saw her as you see the sun.”
– “He looked at her like a man, who picked a flower and in a withered flower he hardly recognizes the beauty for which he picked it up and destroyed it.”
– “Maybe it was my mind that told me that you should love your neighbor and not bully him? I was told this in my childhood, and I believed it with joy, because I was told something that was already in my soul. And who made this discovery? That’s not a mind. Reason discovered the struggle for existence and the law that I should oppress all those who would be opposed to the satisfaction of my desires. This is the conclusion of reason. And the mind could not discover the love of man for man, because it is not a reasonable thing.”
And a few quotes from the memoirs of Zofia Tolstoy:
– “I don’t like men at all; they were always alien to me and physically abhorrent. I have to like his soul and talent in a man for a long time, so that he would become dear to me and that I would like him completely. In all my fifty years of life, there were three such men, the most important of whom was my husband. And yet he too!”
(A surprising confession, considering he had shown her “himself” two weeks after the wedding, and considering the number of their children – who disgusted him at birth.)
– “There is something weighing on me. I still think I’m going to die soon. Now it’s strange because I have a husband, I can hear him sleeping. And yet I feel fear, I am alone. He keeps me from getting close and it that worries me. All these physical things are repulsive.”
– “If I could kill him and then create a new one, he would be exactly the same – I would do it with joy.”
I understand her so much in the first and last quote (apart from physical).
So much unfair that many try to discredit her and attribute her “cold” and mental illness.
This short mention in the film encouraged me to come back to my favorite authors. I read their books and biographies about 25 years ago. I don’t like to come back. But in this case it’s worth it. I wonder how my perspective has changed over the years? I think, a lot. I can find many new things, that I miss then. Ah, if time could stand still… The prose of life “eats” it so much…
Joa, I would encourage you to continue your listening and reading.
Of course. You provide stimulation on several levels so it would be hard to leave 😊
This one took me by surprise, the fact she was an Art Historian, but then she mentioned she’d been entangled with a narcissist which is what has brought about her interest in your work. She was able to relate it to her field, and various art forms can be seen from a different perspective when viewed through the lens of narcissism. You’ve shown us that before through music and film, also literature. An interesting conversation with some wishful thinking thrown in on her part regarding ‘compassion’ … we’ve all been there. We feel it even if it’s not being offered. How strange. Good you clarified, HG.
Tudor Academy. Hmmm. Sounds really good. I liked your explanations on how it would be structured to aid various ‘paths’ (ie work, family) of learning in relation to narcissism. This would assist those, for example, working in Law firms to read up about narcissism to understand the ‘dynamics’ of a narcissist in court, should the case arise.
Yay! RE: the Ensnared series and the Ashley, Ian and Peter ‘trio’. OMG though, it will be interesting to re-read my comments on the videos and compare these with your upcoming ‘analysis’ on who is what and so on. I am looking forward to that 🙂
LOL “as to what those rascals have been getting up to”. Oh, yes?
That would be absolutely excellent for you to narrate and have as you suggest, maybe the BBC to dramatise. I can just imagine you, sat in a chair and narrating it, just like Roald Dahl did when introducing ‘Tales of the Unexpected’.
I have described you as ‘groovy’ in your approach to educating and entertaining people about narcissism, and other pieces of literature / poems. Groovy, indeed.
Being the ‘Ultra’ sets you apart because you explain the affects of narcissism from both ‘perspectives’, the narcissist and the victim. You support and empower the victims yet maul the narcissist.
Where you explained, clearly, the difference in intimate relationships where there are no narcissists compared to those involving a narcissist (or two) – where a narcissist is involved, it is as if someone is continuously pressing on the ‘fast-forward’ button of a ‘dialogue’, so in some cases, a victim may appear to be ‘slow’ in catching up with the narcissist. There may be other cases where the victim who has been ‘continuously’ under the influence of narcissism because of their addiction (to narcissism) and not having a break in between narcissistic influence from one narcissist to another (ie back-to-back relationships, on ‘rebound’) and so the victim would not necessarily ‘see’ it as being too quick (to ‘rush in’), even if those outside the relationship point it out to them.
Laughing, because you’re explaining and then I’m reading….”in the pulling of hair and leaping around and everything’s rainbows and unicorns”. My mind stops and I think ‘what?’. LOL.
That was interesting to read about Scandinavia and the need to create an ‘outlet’, hence producing narratives that are fictional.
Similar yet a different ‘slant’ to a narcissist and their ‘magical thinking’. In saying this, it reminds me of the psychotic dissociative spectrum. Hence people, including non-narcissists producing ‘masterpieces’ in art, film and so on. Creativity from those who have experienced both ‘dark’ and ‘light’ in their world can be astounding to those who have not experienced it, thus bringing forth awe. Effectively, those that have not had to ‘live behind’ a mask may not have the talents, or creativity, at times, lateral, logical and analytical ‘thinking’ approach.
It was good to read your prospective plans for ensuring your Legacy continues with expansion of your work to further fields and continuing to educate, and inform others about narcissism. I hope it all goes to plan and I have no doubt you will succeed in all you aimed to do originally. Congratulations and well done, HG.
It is a very good interview and it is different from those you had with Doug. Thank you for sharing it with us, HG.
This interview was amazing, not the interviewer, but many aspects of things you said HG. I am so happy the consults are going to continue to be an option. Also, you handled the question about your morality etc with finesse, it was very impressive and I breathed a sigh of relief at your reply. I felt that you toned down the cold, hard logic a bit but were still very straightforward about how negative manipulations work for you. It was great to hear it, done in that way, but still true to what we have learned here. Thank you for sharing this here, much nicer than commenting on YT, for me anyway.
