Jacque Fresco-Depression, Self Identification-Sept 5, 2011 (1/2)

Hi lovely people :wave:
Please can someone give me their thoughts on the following phrase?
It's from the video where Jacque talks about depression.
At minute 05:19 he says:
If you're depressed it means you're looking within yourself for answers and you can't get that. How did I get it? I didn't find it in psychology books at all.

When he says "you can get that", do you think he means that you can get it as in understand it, or get it as in find the answers within yourself.?
His tone of voice, to me, suggests the second way, that you can't find the answers within yourself.

Thanks in advance :bighug:

Hey, SweetSue,
I remember that, and I think he means the second way: 'you can't find the answers within yourself.'
