Mind is a good servant, but a bad master. 
Mind has many functions. First, mind is deliberation. Second, cognition. Third, volition. And then, mostly confusion. Mind's name is confusion...

I am certain there is too much certainty in the world.~ Michael Crichton, MD.

There is no such thing as consensus science. If it’s consensus, it isn’t science. If it’s science, it isn’t consensus. Period.~ Michael Crichton, MD.

I would rather have questions that can't be answered than answers that can't be questioned.~ Richard Feynman

Liberty is the possibility of doubting, the possibility of making a mistake, the possibility of searching and experimenting, the possibility of saying “No” to any authority — literary, artistic, philosophic, religious, social and even political.~ Ignazio Silone

I can't get over how interested people are in Zappa now. He was considered a novelty act throughout most of his career, like Spike Jones, but transgressive.

He had a loyal cult following from the 1970s into the '80s.  I had a number of friends who would go to his concerts whenever he came near by.  It seemed like he would play a medium-size venue (The Palladium or The Beacon Theater) in NYC at least once a year, but never large arenas like MSG or stadiums.  He didn't get much radio play other than a few "pre-playlist-era" stations or college stations though.  I think he was considered more musically "convoluted" or satirical than he was considered a novelty act to most critics and other musicians - "Dancin' Fool" and "Valley Girl" notwithstanding.  He likely was a fan of Spike Jones though certainly more transgressive.

Never saw that one before, but I have seen this one for a number of years:
If you want to get laid, go to college. If you want an education, go to the library.  -  Frank Zappa

That quote seems more like something Ray Bradbury may have said, but likely did not. 
 
I heard Zappa interviewed on NPR in the early 90's, after the Soviet Union broke up. He had just come back from Russia.  People wanted to know how capitalism worked and had asked: How do you make money running hotels? There is no profit in it.  He said, You don't make money running hotels, you make money selling them.  In other words, assets inflate by design. That was news to me too at the time.

As for my criticism of Peterson's reliance on religion as the basis of morality...it seems posting a little blue link in the middle of a bunch of text that didn't get read carefully didn't result in anyone noticing the link either. Here's the episode I'm referring to:


As for Hitchens: I never said he wasn't sanctimonious (he scathed very well) but he brought a good bit more to the table than Peterson. I don't see anything Peterson has done for civilization that Hitchens didn't already do, and do better.

 
Again, i think you're missing the larger point of Peterson. It's not Christianity or any religion...they facilitate but are not essential to the human condition of yearning for oneness, togetherness, to serve something higher than the self/ego...the mystery.
