    If you don't feel like learning meditation and practicing that for years you can reach it via a crash course by taking psychedelics such as LSD and mushrooms. I'm not saying you should, I'm saying it's possible, not condoning drug use

    Very weak. I guess, to use his own terms, he needs to keep meditating.

    Survival instinct is indeed a very primitive and rather "blind" mechanism but there is a reason for its existence. It would be a bad idea to simply let it go.
    However, we need to work as a species towards replacing pure instincts with something more advanced, based on reason and logic. That's were education comes in.
    Unfortunately, the issue is a bit more complicated and it will require large scale coordination in addition to individual effort for self improvement.
