John Vervaeke on Lex Fridman's podcast (episode #317) - getting into his best-known topics such as 'the meaning crisis', meaning in the 'meaning in life' rather than 'meaning of life' sense, particularly at the more granular level what gets termed 'relevance realization' which if I'm understanding the idea correctly it's rightness of fit or finding fit / finding relationship between subject and object or perhaps subject and object series.

“Love takes off the masks that we fear we cannot live without and know we cannot live within. I use the word "love" here not merely in the personal sense but as a state of being, or a state of grace - not in the infantile American sense of being made happy but in the tough and universal sense of quest and daring and growth.” - James Baldwin
