I honestly cannot tell whether this is parody. It has all the aesthetics of a normal guided meditation, including gentle music and a sonorous voice. But then Adam Smith personally congratulates you on your good work. Surprising, but I am willing to accept it. But the “Sorrow of your competitors, resigned to their loss”? I’m really not sure how to feel at that point.

However, I have been long frustrated with the lack of emotionally resonant material which expresses intellectual values, so I encourage everyone to give this six minutes, if only to get inspired about what a better version might look like.
