Episode 3: Alex Pratt
For Alex, the truest thing he knows is that people are terrible at appreciating what they have. Alex believes this tendency had to be advantageous at some point in the evolutionary history of humanity, but is terribly misplaced in our modern society. It's not that we never feel content, but Alex sees the huge push in society to combat this feeling of unease points to our need to constantly work against the gravity of ingratitude.

Episode 2: Emery Wager
Emery says, the truest thing he knows is: "I can control my actions, and that's the only thing I can control." Emery finds great liberation in knowing that his control only extends to his actions. That allows him to let go of worry about his thoughts, the actions of others, anything that isn't a direct action.
