Renowned psychologist and professor Jordan Peterson has announced his conversion to Hinduism. But don’t expect deep spiritual revelations or divine awakenings – Peterson apparently made the switch purely out of sheer boredom with his carnivorous diet.
Peterson, who gained fame for his philosophical musings and articulate arguments, has recently been facing a dilemma that no amount of Jungian introspection could solve: his carnivore diet left him craving something a bit more exotic than just beef. Enter Hinduism, with its rich tapestry of vegetarian options, spices, and an array of delectable dishes that have long beckoned to his taste buds from afar.
In a statement that had Twitter in stitches, Peterson shared, “You know, I’ve been a devout follower of the all-beef diet for a while now, but it turns out even the most rigorous commitment to steak can’t keep my palate entertained forever. And let’s face it, I’ve probably analyzed meat from every possible psychological angle, so why not give vegetarianism a whirl?”
Peterson’s conversion, if it can even be called that, has brought forth a wave of reactions ranging from bewilderment to enthusiastic encouragement. Some fans speculated whether his “clean your room” mantra would now be updated to “clean your plate of veggies.” Others wondered if his maps of meaning would expand to include the intricate labyrinth of Indian cuisine.
While Peterson’s conversion to Hinduism may not be religious, it has certainly added a spicy twist to the already complex flavour palette of his life. And who knows, perhaps this dietary detour will lead to a new series of thought-provoking lectures on the intersections of philosophy, nutrition, and the quest for the perfect paneer tikka. One thing’s for sure: the world will be watching, fork and knife in hand, as Peterson takes his taste buds on an intellectual and culinary adventure of a lifetime.
