Holy shit. Atheists and materialists are such midwits that you are a moron for even contending with them. I believe you need to have a certain personality to get stuck on materialism and never evolve past it. It’s like they are unable to comprehend anything complex. Perhaps they need to try psychedelics? Or they are eternally doomed, who knows. Sage.

the entire universe has "consciousness" if you're willing to define it in more abstract terms. even clearly non sentient things like rock formations self organize over time

I am a second language English speaker/reader.
I might have mild aphantasia since I find it hard to visualize what I’m reading. When I’m reading a novel I can visualize easy paragraphs but when it comes to harder paragraphs my mind is like I’m listening to a radio drama.

i really only have what i call "facial-aphantasia". i cannot visualise faces of people, especially loved ones. i could not picture my mother's face to save my life. I recognise her when I see her, but i couldn't draw her from memory. every time i look at someone it's almost like i'm seeing them for the first time. i feel like i notice new things about someone's face each time i look at it.

My sister is diagnosed with bipolar 2 and my grandma had psychotic episodes. I'm not diagnosed with anything and don't want to be. I definitely have some bipolar/psychotic spectrum traits but maybe not enough for a diagnosis. I used to hallucinate after smoking weed (I stopped smoking weed, it always made me feel bad) and hallucinate when sleep deprived. The hallucinations can sometimes be enjoyable desu. I'm glad I get to stay sane.

this is the typical 'i am tone deaf', no youre just shit with music. 'i am dyslexic', youre just dumb and you embrace it. 'i have aphantasia', youre dull and despirited. pretty sure these are real for some people but commonly its the same as vegans telling you they are vegan

yeah, stops me from having dreams and shit, lots of negative effects over time.
it's funny, we mess with our noggins with these drugs and really don't know the influence of basic shit, yet here we are, hacking our brains for squishing out as much pleasure as we can, bah, who knows. you probably just need some food you're not getting, or your brain is legit broken. just pray that the gods gave you some corresponding talent that allows you to flourish in some niche beyond the obviously useful visual mental manifestations.

I used to have vivid nightmares as a toddler but then I stopped having dreams for decades.
Then I watched some sleep hypnosis for dreams video aged 24 (while high and drunk) on youtube and that gave me dreams and Ive had them ever since. First dream I had from that was getting fucked my something invisible and feeling pleasure that felt like 50 times more powerful than cumming all over my body.
Wish I never wish I never got them desu I wake up after each one so my sleep is shit.

>inb4 I fell for the meme

I'm about halfway through Songs of a Dead Dreamer and I cannot understand why Ligotti gets so much praise. He writes such verbose, self-absorbed prose that it makes Lovecraft look like Hemingway. Worse than that, he seldom puts good effort into the narratives of his stories, which rise to about the level of Clive Barker. Honestly, he doesn't even reach Stephen King levels of quality, which I would call "baseline."

Why is he so well liked, and why do all the positive reviews read like they're from mentally retarded people who think they're Harold Bloom?

The Frolic could be a pretty solid story, but some parts which seemed to be unlikely and the ending made I deem it as a weak one.

How do I love God? What should one do when he finds that he is obsessed with the world, and cannot find his trust and hope in the unseen? And when this love for God is attained, what is the proper path for this life? What careers should I pursue? Should I hate my love for women? Shall I quit this place forever? Is it better to be alone, or to be with others? Is it better to prosper, or to be content with little?

This world is a dream, but I cannot wake up. But If my eyes were truly opened, then how could I endure all the vanity and illusions that fill the life of this world? Nearly everything is distraction, but can I afford to ignore it all?

What is the path that I should take? What is the path that I should take?

Let go of your hate anon, you're only hurting yourself and eventually it will spread and hurt those around you that you care about.

Pretty easy. Just talk to god. That’s humility which is important because you need to get over feeling silly or too proud to simply communicate, even if you think nothing is on the other side. Then when you do all the thoughts and actions in your life will be contextualised against the whole scheme of things, your desires and hang ups will seem insignificant, and since god knows all your thoughts, it’s a chance to be totally honest with yourself about why you think and do certain things without the usual bullshit your ego throws out to defend itself. Apologise for your wrongs and realise that you aren’t being judged for them, and resolve to try and be a little bit better. If you do this semi regularly it is very cathartic and will help you connect with god.

Not much of an achievenment. That first big morning brap thats been building all night debunks ancap.
Even the concept of marginal utility can be turned against its own school. All you have to do is assess the cost benefits of another economic system compared to ancap and there you have it, you've every reason to ditch a cap for even something as shit as Keynesian capitalism with a social safety net.

The author essentially promotes a anti-modernist vision/ideology of how European nationstates should govern themselves in a way that isn't suicidal and can be sustained without any major conflicts.
In his own words it sort-of comes down to creating an United States of Europe, but as opposed to the E.U. there will be a major focus on hierarchical-, ethno-cultural- and family-based principles that would guarantee it's long-term survival.

In a nutshell, it's akin to National Socialism (perhaps it shares even more similarities to the classical Roman fascism) but more practical.

The vibe is harshed because there are far more interesting things to do at the peak of an acid trip than read. On a large dose my mind is racing much faster than I can read, and frankly there are many things that are more interesting to observe.
>He has mellow trips
If you're not bordering on maddness you're wasting drugs.
