Show Notes:
[1:00] Jordan Peterson kicks off the conversation by asking why and how Matthew McConaughey wrote his book Greenlights.
[4:00] Matthew realized he needed to write the book himself without a ghostwriter as initially planned and dig back into his journals as a form of necessary reflection on the past.
[6:00] Matthew’s old journals revealed their common thread through all the stories, poems, and bumper stickers. That common thread was the creation of good things in life through mindset or action “Greenlights.”
[12:00] Jordan talks about his initial response after reading Matthew’s book and how his expectations were changed.
[14:00] Matthew talks about his solo trips when starting to create the structure of his book. Jordan comments that this was a book written by a celebrity that did not really focus on the traditional parts of being a celebrity (very family-focused and foundational). Matthew states, “When we were editing the book, I found that the more personal the stories became, the more relatable they seemed to become, to the human condition, and that was my hope.”
[18:00] Jordan and Matthew revisit the African trip, chasing dreams and having the same exact dream multiple times over the span of many years.
[24:00] What was the personal impact on Matthew during his trip to Africa where he got to strip away the identity we all know him for and exist as something else? Jordan comments that very often, people confuse their reputation with who they really are, and they start to act as a representation of their reputation instead of themselves; it’s an easy trap to fall into.
[22:00] Matthew discusses dealing with the pitfalls of fame. Matthew covers his changing relationship with his mother due to success.
[25:00] Jordan B. Peterson asks Matthew McConaughey about some of his acting work in True Detective and playing dark characters. “How do you play a dark role very well without letting the darkness invade you?”
[32:00] Matthew talks about the positive aspects of the sometimes tense relationship with his father and having a childhood that balanced love and hardship directed from the same people.
[37:00] Jordan and Matthew continue talking about going deeper into the psychology of a dark character like Rustin Cole on True Detective
[45:30] Matthew expanded on the short-term effects of initial fame.
[51:30] Matthew and Jordan discuss the long-term effects of fame.
[55:00] Jordan points out, “If flawed people were incapable of creativity, we would have no creativity.”
[1:03:00] How Matthew and Jordan first became friends.
[1:07:30] Matthew shares a comical review of his own book written as if Jordan was the one reviewing it.

    The spirit does what the spirit does in truth, and mankind does what mankind does wheel-ding that power even in error of conscious. I am convinced God sent word of his love the truth of the spirit to spare mankind the error of ignorance, being that we all are subjected to error of being subjects of error. And in measuring the word of the way of the spirit in the reality of the experience we experience it occur to me that the measurable spirit of God takes elements of separation and puts them together in a meaningful way, of experience, for the experience, to experience the experience, of life of the spirit of the way of freedom in truth, truth being an attribute of peaceful consciousness in the way, where truth of the spirit sets us free from error long as we maintain by learning the way good conscious, even through prayer, to have experience of love, growing up being caring, and wise, of the circumstance we find ourselves in..Ones Conscious can be seared in error when the way of error becomes a lifestyle of ignorance. The idiom, coming out of the closet striving to make the whole world dark to be comfortable in Error, comes to mind, which is a problem for children of light though generally they lovingly contend with restraint in truth, lest they have the spirit of error, in error. Apparently it boils down to belief, personal belief, and consequential rules, of what error is, being seconded by another who gives courage, in error, of a ruse of spiritual permission that is contrary, making for warring spiritual factions, those of the consensus of error in spirit acceptance versus the contrary spirit of the way of truth that preserves life by avoiding error's way of bondage and underlying unrest where error in spirit is the way of death. Basically people are using the power of the spirit in ways of error because of the state of error in the world where connections are made for happiness meeting a need of desire to have peace, eating for example, that if you error in the way of eating you get sick or die, of cause others the same in error. It is no small thing wheelding the power of the spirit of survival in freedom where we have mechanism of an autonomous nature of the spirit where we are conditioned of the conditions, being lords of our own domain with overlapping interest, even seduced in the way of error of misplaced desires of another domain, where error in the way of spirit effects others of good conscious, and protected by those in error of spirit, in error. In experience, and viewing in the proper prospective of terms of understanding of the word, we can see that truth of the spirit, by measure and rewarding benefit, if we are conditioned in the truth in time, having that of the desire of the spirit of love, avoiding error and it's plaguing anxieties, experiencing consequences, of error, and the joy of love in truth, we lovingly contend with, of which connections in truth we are destine to make of the spirit of preserving life, being animated by the spirit, in a mortal body, to experience the experience of the love of God in what God has to offer, in truth, having sent word of his love the truth of the spirit of the complexity of life made so simply. You understand the dynamics of the psychology of life, the truths or truths of error in spirit, where subjects can be bound in a way of error of belief, its related psychosis, of being subjects of error, where death is a stumbling block, such as the psychosis of an abused child of incest, where amens cannot be made because in error the trustee who violated trust has committed suicide leaving that daughter alone in a way of error, bound in error of spirit, in error, where no answers of why could be asked to make sense. I have spoken to such who was bound and set free by words of truth of the spirit that answered those questions and released them that error, even the error of Adam and Eve, or Abraham's error making for Issac and Jacobs trouble, of the offspring born in error, Ishmael who fought in error with his bothers all of whom Abraham lovingly contended with in truth, but his offspring, not so much love, in the way of error in spirit, fighting over inheritance, in error, still...I hope you still have patience of study to rightly divide this knowledge, of value of the spirit, to share; the missed comma or grammatical error in form, to understand, the spirit of what I mean, in Truth, making the connection. What is mind altering for me is the prospective of the spirit of truth that has it all make sense, being that all truth is manifest of the spirit, even error in spirit truth that so grieves our holy spirit in life. To be holy is to be wholly of good countenance of love, humble meaning the ways of the spirit, of the way of means, Compassion, Charity, to give in effort in Truth of the Spirit, for the sake of Mercy giving Freedom and Peace, in the way, with all being subject of error, subject to error in the way of darkness, where light is given for life in the way of God, represented by the spirit of the way of the Menorah that lights the way of the spirit of the way of truth to God, that in lacking in one, oil of truth, means lacking in the others, without one of these 7 attributes of the spirit of love means there is no peace in error, or freedom as darkness closes in, in error. We have reference of the word of God where a candle stick was moved from it place, peace they once had because they erred, in the way of the spirit, of ignorance, that in error of ignorance, they fought to be free because they were made captive in error, fighting to keep peace when they had no compassion charity of mercy because they lack in Truth, because the spirit works in error of ignorance too, for a time, till the humbling wrath of error comes upon the whole, with so many being naturally naive, spiritually blind, pridefully protecting their bubble of error in belief because they were made rich in the ways of error and death status quo, such as the profitable Military industrial complex and its way of the spirit of death and destruction ironically trying to preserve life meeting the needs of sustainability of dominance of one over demonizing another whose simply in error, where the battles continues continuously in the collective way of error. Democrats focus of compassion is helping people out of the cracks (making money for their constituent landlords, etc, and Republicans focus is on fixing cracks, where they both spend vast sums studying the problems of the past and weighing in the balances gains and losses, to the sacrifice of many in truth and error, but not much can be done because of difference of prospectives of pride and obstruction of power of the spirit to correct error, that they but heads and fight people trying to help fix problems, made complex, when the solution of truth requires both solutions, that is, to help the people out of the crack as you fix the crack along the conditions of truth we are meaning to uphold Constitutionally in caring for all, including the uninformed atheist making waves of destruction of their underlying unrest of being subjects of error, we lovingly contend with, like hurricanes, lol..I could go on... but I am mortal and afflicted, now, up in age, subjected to the error in the way of the world, where duty calls, my cross I carry to the death of error, where the spirit and soul is released, in material truth, of the coded chains of DNA, returning to the Father Spirit of whenst I came, and do in the sake of love for others, back to our first estate, just so you know the prospective terms of the keys given in the past. Now that is as spiritually deep as it is high. lol, not to be confused with the herb given, of high, for healing comfort, peace, and solemn reflection of the spirit of the mind, of the spirit of life, as we endure till the end, which I am sure you can relate. I too see value in you all which is why I made time to share. Too bad I cannot see you clinically for you to explore this brain manifested of the spirit of our creator I know... but still when there is the will, of two witnesses, there is a way; as we just witnessed you and Mathew whom we also love in Truth, and error, in the way, being subjects, maps of meaning. By the way, Jordan, when I think of you, its of your youthful image, the spirit being ageless and timeless. Isn't the perception of yourself, your younger self, until you reflect upon the material mirror. Truth is for the perpetuation of the Spirit of continuing life, caring about the spirit of life, so life of the whole is not cut of in error of ignorance. It is fascinatingly amazing, life in this peculiar way of experience, where we care for, and fall in love with, the spirit of our, creators, beings, some in bizarre ways of error and taboo striving for satisfaction in error that offers momentary gratification in exchange for the underlying continual unrest of being in error, that dives people to drink or search for happiness in other ways of error while loved ones wait till they no longer can bare the unrest of ignorance.

    If life is that bad and we see it only at the end of life, how did we survive to get there, so something good enough kept us alive no matter how small. All of us are born to want to survive until I guess we cannot take it anymore and lost all hope BUT in this point in life whether 15 years Old, or 80 years old, We still don't know if tomorrow is better and really only the present is important. We are not going to change the past or predict the future. So live in the moment , But I live in the promise Jesus made everyone who choses him...eternal life , And joy and peace in this fallen world.

    An actor that is both strange and normal at the same time and it really makes him more intriguing. On top of that he has harnessed the power of positive energy; his success is no accident. Peterson is a good listener and he profits in his interview because of it. He also is thoughtful enough to be able to keep the conversation going into new territory when necessary. Really helps that he actually read the book and actually considered what he was reading. Seems like many interviewers skim the content they read and mostly just want to talk about the things people already mostly know or will create some sort of controversy.

    Great interview, I have always found the subject of a successful persons talent and fame interesting. Its seems a two edged sword it can reward you or destroy you and many times both. A persons talent draws your attention to them in admiration, but I've also noticed that while the talent may be attractive the person with it, is not necessarily so. A book on how to handle fame wouldn't go astray, I think Paul McCartney and Barry Gibb are excellent role models who recognize their greatest achievements are being a good husband and father with loving families.

    This is a surprising deep conversation. Its heartening to know that someone like Mathew is a believer.

    40:09-40-40 Jordan you’re words adequately described something that I haven’t been able to process in my mind when I reflect on my own circumstances, Thank you and thank you for sharing this discussion with Mr. McConaughey, there’s more to man than what is the role in which he plays on the big screen.

    ...just had a breakthrough regarding "resentment". It's interesting how rational thoughts (which are mostly overrated, at least in my experience) can help balancing out emotions (which are WAY more powerful and follow their own biological / psychological / social rules and patterns). I'm 37, I've been establishing a successful business for over 7 years now and I've already overcome so many bad habits and self-destructive tendencies, but I've still been struggling with resentment towards the narrative of "It's not personal - it's just business!" I've hated the hypocrisy, the phoniness. I've felt so much despite. I couldn't understand how - our limited capacities (individually and in every social context), - all the pain and suffering immanent in our existence ("life") and - our need for positivity, laughter etc. to deal with that darkness, leads us to this narrative - and that's actually the best option we have to get along. I've thought about this and struggled with it for years. As Matthew & Jordan came to that issue, I once again felt that resentment towards their argument, but today it wasn't strong enough to keep me from hitting "pause". I took my time to reflect on it and finally, I could see where I've been wrong all those years. I'm gonna be and do better - I promise.
