The paradigm that’s driving people the most, which is the performance paradigm to succeed, no one seems to be as interested in the secular scientific proof that that’s good for you. So we’re on this rush to sort of succeed and work 24/7 and make all this money and it’s all on faith. Not only is there no proof that it’s good for us, there’s actually more scientific evidence that suggests that it isn’t, but when it comes to meditation then we want the proof. So that to me is an interesting dynamic.

The middle away is an ancient eastern philosophy probably first attributed to the Buddha, and in fact the life story of the Buddha is really sort of a metaphor in a way for the middle away. And there are many ways to sort of recount the middle way, but in the context of Pixar I think of it like this: you can imagine perhaps that there are two people inside of us. And so one of the people inside of us you can think of as a bureaucrat. And the role of the bureaucrat is to function, is to function well in the world, to make sure we get up on time, that we get to catch a play on time, to make sure that they’ll be dinner on the table at night and we have enough money in the bank and all of these requirements that we need in order to be sort of successful at functioning in the world. And then there’s another person inside of us that you can think of as like an artist or a free spirit. And that free spirit just wants to live and love and laugh and create and be and enjoy and just experience all the richness and possibilities of life.
