The drum beats match the stomping steps around the raging fire and they're not alone because the mountains thunder.

The Earth is molten surrounded by a thin crust of 25 miles.

25 miles below the natives feet the magma Earth beat against the crust. Where do you think the drummer found his rhythm?

A new energy. After weeks of crying the outer shell has completely eroded, washed off. Now the tender skin beneath, beating flushed and not yet adapted to the harsh environment. The brain focused again, lead by the immediate goals. Revisiting the once hated probability and algebra stimulates it with clean enthusiasm. Feeling streamlined. This is my diary desu.

I was actually thinking about clouds. I realised that the angle in which you see the cloud is unique, and so the image of the cloud is unique to your perception of it. A million people looking at the same cloud will see a different cloud.
Then I realised that all perception is like that.. and down that rabbit hole I went. What's on your mind friendo?

I've noticed the strange and sudden appearance of stigmata on my body. You might think that absurd but I swear, it was as if the wind clawed me. The world is sentient and boils down to one consciousness, and knowledge of this fact can be used to a practical advantage.

This isn't the first time I've been visited by the claws of the darkness. Something primal and hidden branding me as its possession. Yet it finds resistance, and a powerful spirit fighting against it in this demiurgic drama called life.

I find myself loving the people I used to hate and hating the people I used to love, and then swinging back again like an elastic. That way I see it all, be it all, cut and tumble over it like a kid waiting to fall asleep imagining his bed is a boat sailing the seas.

Why was it that for so many years I lived life in a coma? A terrible, fragmented, parody of myself? So many reasons and I can see it spread out like veins in an autopsy of the past. But the present still lives and the future just might. I know now--I can see it now, a young boy that transcended his circumstances-- the crudities encasing him in cement to manage to figure out how to do what he has always wanted. I've found the child that was me and have let that little thing free. An act of self-forgiveness is a beautiful thing.

My mind is oldish, filled with a minimum 45 years of experience and thought, all of which is upon it this moment. Much of it has become a blob of abstraction, the odd, sporadic details fly by from time to time. Wait, let me see if I can grab and hold one for a moment...

Depression diary of the day
Spent most of the day in bed, didn't touch the book. It's 3:40 am right now and I'll probably sleep after this.
Changed my cat's litter. Been on 4chan most of the time. /adv/ was fun to browse today. I like talking to people about their problems.
The headaches have worn out, and that horrible sensation in my chest is gone. But I still have a strange feeling in my stomach and I'm salivating so much, like I'm about to be nauseous.
I think I've been doing things with a little more enthusiasm today. I hope it gets better tomorrow.

I live in a tent in my ex wife's back yard. I am now in the house on my laptop on 4Chan while "Into the Badlands" plays on our son's desktop, because she likes to "watch shows" while she does her job on her laptop, but I don't really give any fucks about "shows".

What all led up to me living in a tent in my ex wife's back yard? Well, that's exactly the book I'm working on now. I'll finally be able to leave sometime next year, after our son graduates and gets his college sorted. I shall then, like the black dude from Pulp Fiction, wander the Earth like Caine from Kung Fu.

There will be differences, of course. I, for example, am not a martial arts master, though I do know a trick or few. Also, I shall have a WiFi enabled Internet communication device to utilize whenever I enter into a city of humans.

As the Grateful Dead sang, "what a long, strange trip it's been"...thus far...

I allow the days to continue out of some vague expectation, of some development. Nothing happens of course, and my godlessness deepens. I cannot even conceive of worth any longer and I do not pursue what is required of me anymore either for I feel nothing to do so, no compunction. I imagine this will continue for as long as it is allowed , and the allowance ends in a little over 6 weeks with the remains of my bank account. I'm hungry, but that is not a reason to eat. I eat sometimes and I'm not sure why. It feels satisfying to do so but I don't do it for the sake of satisfaction. The cause is something visceral, I don't understand it, and I don't always heed it, and I'm confused when I do. I observe myself. I observe hunger, and wonder at it, rearrange demands, explications, and facts... like playing with one's food, but the food is no food.

The Adventures of the Green Grass: Episode 1

The sun is yellow and the sky is blue.
And who see it? It is you. Yah!
We are friends. We are good guys.
There are no bad guys. We run on grass.
When we need adventure we climb the
mountains, swim the rivers, and meet the loners.
We like to eat lots of bread. And sometimes
other food if it can be found. Yah!
Our land is big but it has an end
with a fence that we stay away from.
Jacob Big Hat is the main guy.
He is big and likes to fight.
Allen Long Tail is his friend and also big.
Paul and Ball are two small guys.
They are slow with little steps.
Jumping Flip is another guy who is always far away.
Blipper is a friend to all and so is Niker Long Whip
who is the toughest with his whip.
The robots harvest the grain and make
the bread, but they're also watching for
the end

Jacob Big Hat is there. He is walking alone through the grass. He is almost at the top of a little hill. He will not stop there. The grass is green. He will keep walking to where he is going.
The sun is high. A shadow darkens the grass in front of Jacob Big Hat. He is looking down. Now he is looking up. Jumping Flip is jumping and flipping. He keeps blocking the sun while he is jumping and flipping so high.
Jacob Big Hat takes his hat off. The sunlight rustles his green hair. His hat is brown. He shakes his hat in his right hand, spins around, and throws his hat like a disk. His hat almost hits Jumping Flip. Jumping Flip dodges the hat in the air. He lands on the ground and jumps away fast. Jumping Flip is the fastest. He is always alone and safe.
Jacob Big Hat walks towards his hat. It is on top of another small hill. Jumping Flip was just there. Jacob Big Hat gets there. He puts the hat on and the top of his head is brown again.
Jacob Big Hat has a brown hat that is very tall and wide. His hat is bigger than him. His hat is hollow and light. He is good at throwing it. His clothes are always the same. They are part of his skin. His boots are too. The only things he can take off are his red bandana from his face and his hat from his head. His eyes are permanently covered with black sunglasses. He has a black and white checkered shirt with blue jeans that are blue. His belt is brown with a fancy buckle. Jacob Big Hat's shirt is always tucked in. There is always a red bandana covering most of his face besides his sunglasses. Even his ears are always covered by the bandana. He can hear though.
Jacob Big Hat has brown and black boots. He is a cowboy. His buckle has a horse head on it. There are no more horses in the land. They are just a memory now. His hands are bare and show that his base skin is purple.
Jacob Big Hat is still walking. He stops and stands still. He keeps walking now. Now he is in green grass that has no hills. It is just flat here.
"Now I don't have to walk up the hills," says Jacob Big Hat, "My legs get tired, but not now.."
He is just walking randomly because he has nothing else to do.
>>
>>12192741
Fuck niggers
>>
Far away Paul is walking too. Jacob Big Hat stays away because they are not friends. Paul is almost pure blue except with three black eyes under his forehead. Paul has box shaped feet that are blue. He is darker blue than the sky. His mouth is blue so it is hard to see. When he eats it looks like he is just putting food through his skin.
Paul is smaller than Jacob Big Hat. Paul is only about as tall as Jacob Big Hat's knee. Jacob Big Hat's hat is 5/4 as tall as the rest of him. With the hat Jacob Big Hat is 9 times taller than Paul.
Paul's hands are stumps at the end of his cylindrical arms. Paul poops and pees through his mouth because he has no other holes in his body. He hears through his skin catching sound waves.
"HEY!" shouts Allen Long Tail from far away, "JACOB BIG HAT!"
Jacob Big Hat and Allen Long Tail are both friends. Allen Long Tail walks towards Jacob Big Hat. Allen Long Tail's tail is long and slithers behind him. The end points left and then right and keeps alternating as the tail slithers like a snake. His tail looks like a snake with fur. It is black with thin black fur and black skin.
Allen Long Tail's feet look like kangaroo feet with black fur. He has no claws on his feet nor a pouch on his belly. He is tall and skinny with a small head and a purple shirt that he always wears. His shirt has a picture of a kangaroo on it. Allen Long Tail has long arms with thin black fur and black skin. His knuckles are dragging across the ground. He has no pants or shoes. He has no genitals and poops and pees through the tip of his tail. His small head has two eyes, a black, flat and squishy nose, and a mouth with human teeth and a black tongue. His skin is grey on his head except for his nose. His ears are long and stick out the sides of his head. They are grey. There is thin black fur on the grey skin of his scalp and ears. His 10 fingers all have claws. His tail is 3/2 as tall as he is. Jacob Big Hat stands and waits. Allen Long Tail gets to him. Kangaroos are just a memory. They only live on in Allen Long Tail's shirt picture.
"I want to look for fuggles," says Allen Long Tail.
"I want to too," says Jacob Big Hat, "Too-too."
"Together friend," says Allen Long Tail.
"Together friend," says Jacob Big Hat.
They are walking together. They look with their eyes and see one fuggle sitting on the flat grass with its berry babies. They run so fast. The fuggle hears them and watches them come closer. Fuggles look like the Pokémon called Bidoofs and their babies look like giant blue berries. Fuggles are four times as long as Paul is tall. The babies are half as big as the fuggle's head. They arrive next to the fuggle.
"Hey," says the fuggles, "My babies are not for eating."
"We like to eat them!" shouts Jacob Big Hat, "We will eat them."
"I will tickle you guys until you stop," says the fuggle.
Jacob Big Hat and Allen Long Tail each grab a baby and start eating. The fuggle starts tickling their feet until all six babies are eaten.

"I have no more babies," says the fuggle, "I will go away and make more." The fuggle walks away.
Both good guys are covered in purple juice from the berries. It is on their hands, faces, and chests.
"Cleaner Bots!" They are both shouting this over and over.
Finally two bots come running from the horizon. Make them look like robots. They each have two legs and a red stripe. They are both Cleaner Bots.
The two robots arrive. They spray the good guys with soapy water. Then they spray them with regular water to rinse. Finally they dry them with towels and go away.
Jacob Big Hat and Allen Long Tail start heading back for home. They walk through the flat green plain until they get to tall grain. These are the farm fields. The grain is almost as tall as Jacob Big Hat with his hat on. When Jacob Big Hat wears his hat he is 6/5 as tall as Allen Long Tail.
All of the Farmer Bots stop cutting the grain until the two good guys are done walking through it. Then they start cutting again.
Now the two good guys are at the Big Blue House. All of the people in the land live here. They are: Jacob Big Hat, Allen Long Tail, Paul, and the rest you haven't met. Jumping Flip is the exception. He jumps outside, all the time.
Jacob Big Hat and Allen Long Tail both go through the black front door.
Ball is sitting alone inside. He is the same height as Paul. He is the same shade of blue too. He has four legs: one in front, one in back, and one on each side. His legs move him by the front one taking a step and then is hip rotating so that the right one moves to the front. When he walks his legs spin in rotation very fast around his center. Ball has two thin arms that come out the sides of his head and have two fingers each. When his arms are straight up he is twice as tall as Paul, but he usually keeps them down. He sees with his entire head and knees, hears with his arms, smells with his arms, and tastes with his arms and mouth. Ball's mouth is a hole at the top of his head. He pees and poops from a hole in the center of his four legs.
"Hello guys," says Ball from his mini table.
"Hello Ball," both guys reply even though Ball is not their friend.
"I am eating at the table," says Ball, "There is bread."
"I like bread!" shouts Jacob Big Hat.
Jacob Big Hat and Allen Long Tail sit at the big table. A House Bot brings each of them a plate with a loaf of bread. They each eat only half their loaf.
"Did you eat berries?" asks the House Bot.
"Yah! Yah! they both laugh shout over and over.
"Berries are messy," says Ball, "Bread is clean."
"Oh?" replies Allen Long Tail.
"You are all good guys," says the House Bot, "You walk in the green grass."
"No more talking House Bot," says Jacob Big Hat.
The House Bot walks back to the kitchen.
Jacob Big Hat, Allen Long Tail, and Ball all go to bed.

The day never ends. It is always noon. The sky is always blue. Rest and awakening can be whenever.

Kind of ready to go to work again soon. Not really, but kind of. It's a complicated feeling. I was absolutely miserable in the job but I wonder if it's because I had the wrong mindset. Like I said last thread, I felt like I would be stuck there forever and that didn't help the already Sisyphean endeavor. Quit after a whole month, but was told I could come back any time I wanted. Even if it was for Christmas money. Hopefully I can make it longer than a month this time. Maybe two months. That'd get me enough money to do my own thing.

Most jobs are just pointless and boring, and I think I have to remember that. I romanticise them, I think. Probably not good.

I have a chance at happiness right now. These last few years have been a torrent of mistakes and dysfunctional moments, from blowing all of my money on Filipino whores and strip clubs to starting an affair with a married student at my adult education teaching job to seedy late-night drunken massages from Chinese teenagers in the arse-end of a mainland city - goddamn, but right now my girlfriend loves me and thinks I'm the best person in the world and she doesn't know any of this. Everyone loves me and doesn't know any of this. My father is a serial cheater and a sociopath and everyone loved him too. Everything is suspended on a thin sheet of glass and I can see the hell below that's waiting for me if it breaks.

I like your picture OP. It really demonstrates the divide we have between the human frequencies here on single Earth and the nomadic frequencies found on hyperlanes in the overarching space-miasma community. What the man sees is not of a cranial interface that is compatible with a human plug, and is rather of an objective STANDARD that humans find repugnant. Is he merely visiting an ocular channel stadium that develops what he thinks is the miasmic distortions of SPACE and 3_TIME into abstract sightlines? Or is it truly real? IS he developing into a human dual plug for the betterment of his physical self? Has he rejected that self altogether? The community he seeks is not his, and it has never belonged to him and his kind. What kind of overcoat could defend him from targic rays and halogenic slipstreams? And yet it's such an accurate depiction of miasma that I can't help but consider it as an OBJECTIVE verifiable trait. Wheels in wheels, galaxies in the DNA of the galactic cell-scale, plugs on a color (COL_OR) field out of space. What exactly is he hiding from on single Earth? With what precisely is he dissatisfied, or rather, what does he think he can find in the space-miasma that cannot be found in his dirt palace, or his huts made of broken twigs? 1_TIME carbotypes cannot exist on an accuracy level that enables this behavior without an ocular channel divider.

This is op, Let me just speculate for fun.

>Is he merely visiting an ocular channel stadium that develops what he thinks is the miasmic distortions of SPACE and 3_TIME into abstract sightlines

This probably. But this might also be the objective standard.

>With what precisely is he dissatisfied, or rather, what does he think he can find in the space-miasma that cannot be found in his dirt palace, or his huts made of broken twigs?

If what I said before is correct then what he is trying to do is basically cheat on the test. Because the objective standard is expressed as temporal power.

He's basically taking a 2d view of the emergent layers of the ELECTRO-HOLOGRAPHIC simulation

I'm somewhat remorseful for my past disdain of various businesspeople. For instance, Jeff Bezos. I used to scorn this fella all the time thinking of him as not much more than a greedy neo-feudalist with an absurd quest for power, the biggest little king of them all.

But then I had a change of heart. It's cool that someone gets to have such an interesting life, and isn't being completely useless about it. Matter of fact Jeff Bezo's grand design has saved me quite a few headaches collecting some of those handy knicknacks you find yourself in want of haha

Here's the cute part: although Jeff Bezos is powerful, he's not that bad. He's not going to send a squad of assassins after you lol. He's not going to get the police to monitor you. Business power is good power, political power bad power.

I used to be sympathetic to the idea that these people should have a large chunk of their assets redistributed and put to good use building the nation state. And while there is more than a little something to that idea isn't there it's not the American way. And ultimately if you live for others you can never be really sure of what you're living for

My experience walking in the city at night...

Nothing at all was stopping him from shooting me.
It was a night of walking in the dark park.
He was walking coming my way.
Stopping me he said something to me.
He said bark.
It was dark and what the dog said was bark.
Pulling a gun out.
It was dark out.

I've stopped taking that shit this summer, it was awful. At the time I took about 7g a day. Couldn't sleep even a minute for 5 days, anxiety levels like I never knew could exist, vomit and so on and so on. Finally went to an adictology service in a hospital, the doctor gave me some benzo and I managed to get off without too much damages in two weeks. Do it anon, the more you wait the worst it will get. That shit is worst than a first generation benzo

I find it mind boggling how I can see the patterns clear as day and yet I can't break them for shit. Like I could sit down right now, and write down everything I need to do to get my shit together and yet everytime I try to put it into practice it feels like I'm picking a fight with the entire weight of Destiny itself. And whenever I do win that fight (because it does happens) I fall right right back to my old habits as soon as something upsets the motion I find myself lost in.
Like I just want to stop jacking off so much, to take better care of my pet, to actually do some fucking sport and to keep a normal sleep schedule. Those aren't insurmountable ambitions that only the brave and the mighty would ever hope to dream about. It's just basic stuff that I can't do because I'm too busy beating my meat 8 times a day.

I've studied both and I'm not confused by them at all. Hegel took more time overall but that's a given seeing as how he could only write in such a convolluted manner. It's very hard not to totally write off the school of continental philosophy you know that?

Perhaps you’d be better suited to different pursuits. Not everyone is cut out to be an intellectual. There are tons of fun and interesting hobbies you could take up.

Man I'm thinking some really messed up shit right now, like if people could read my thoughts they'd probably run away screaming. Some people underestimate what I'm capable of, they just don't know. Then again, they underestimate just how patient I am. Sometimes I think I could really save humanity, other times I think I just might show them the dark grim truth that they're weak, the bottom of the food chain, how easily they can be destroyed. But I think it's better they find out for themselves, humans out there killing themselves off instead of helping one another...while I sit behind a rainy window looking on with a knowing smile...I warned them. But they're just too vain to listen. And so I whet my sword and dagger in wait for them to come to me in revenge, revenge on their once-friend who they turned their backs on, their prophet, their stoic... oh I'll be waiting.

You needn’t suffer the pain of contorting your mind into pretzels trying to understand things that are beyond your grasp just so you can be a big important intellectual.

I don't believe in the concept of "oversharing" or "TMI" . It's not how much you reveal it's what you reveal. This is a key thing about getting to understand the nature of attention.

Some people manage to be successful without doing anything besides express their personalities. It's a rare art, very hard to pin down. But charm, charisma, wit---these things are as valuable as phds in turbofinance or a million years of experience.

Once your realize everything everyone does all the time everywhere is a game and it's all about how you spin it....

>This is a key thing about getting to understand the nature of attention.
No it's not. "what you reveal" is that which was too much to reveal. Don't fucking interpret people's phrasing of "oversharing" as something other than what's meant just so you can fly in with the actual point of the phrase and go "You had it wrong!!"

>Some people manage to be successful without doing anything besides express their personalities. It's a rare art, very hard to pin down. But charm, charisma, wit---these things are as valuable as phds in turbofinance or a million years of experience.

In our times, people talk a lot about ‘the abyss’, or some such similar dumping ground for all those broken souls, left behind by the motions of life. ‘Staring into the abyss’ you hear, from those who are miserable. Not me, there’s no looking into it from where I am; I’m in the abyss, and you are to. Everyone is. We rush through utter darkness as we push recklessly into the gloom; further towards the gallows, desperately reaching for something brighter. Some say we youngsters bide our time till we hit the net and land comfortably. Then we’re able to light a candle, illuminate our world and find some context. Not so, we find no rest or salvation as we are propelled on our course by the arrow of time; at the end of our blackness is a hard brick wall, studded with rusty nails and sharp blades the wall is littered with the remains of the desolated. Birth to abyss to oblivion, and nothing in-between.

It really is the loneliest journey; the figures to your left and right are lost in the endless darkness. And even though we are identical in our trajectory towards the chopping board, we can find no solidarity with the fellow doomed. Something’s eaten all our light; someone’s nicked all our brightness, and shadows mask the despair on our tortured faces, we suffer alone in perturbed isolation. It’s all downhill from here. So go out and fumble in the obscurity, find what pleasures you can, at any expense; you can do no harm in a blind search for satisfaction. Any and all wrongs committed upon others are absolved, swallowed up by the cosmos and its malicious intent. Its ruthless condemnation of every soul has already destined them to suffer far beyond what you can inflict.

I have entered a pact with some portentous figure dwelling in my mind's recesses. This summer, under the auspices of boredom, ennui, and isolation, he would make regular visits, discoursing on matters both important and nonsensical. Throughout our conversations he would urge me in some direction or another so as to alleviate my boredom, but, alas, each time I would resist - I feared this spectre. Nevertheless he continued in his efforts until finally, on July 27, he began to speak to me in a poem. Naturally I wrote down every word, not wanting to freeze in my icy solitude while his embers burned. Upon the conclusion of this poem he then spoke directly to me, prompting me to negotiate a deal wherein he would, as long as I strove for activity, grant me creative powers abounding. In my weakened condition his words were a sedation, a cruelly calculated siren song for a forlorn mind; I accepted. In addition to his deal I offered to sever all common bond with my fellow man. Fool that I am, I failed to see at the time to what extent this severing would diminish even the most mundane of social graces. What madness, what incorporeal madness...

This will be my final 4chan post. I've decided to renounce this website and all (or at least most hehe) of my vices. but not until the clock strikes midnight tonight then it's right off to bed! Gotta still get my kicks in while I still can!

Recently I have been experiencing this wonderful psychotic break in which I've been channeling Heath Ledger's Joker while shitposting wontonly. I know, it sounds crazy. But it's real. Something's going on--perhaps it has to do with Jung's collective unconscious but I can only wager a guess

. Although nothing changed about my day to day mundane surface life, the underbelly was transforming chaotically and marvelously, and the secrets of the universe swirled around my head and suddenly I could see the unity in all oppositions, the paltriness of logic, and the absurd tangle mostly everyone else finds themselves in :)

I realized every man women and yes child is bascially just a child inside, even though they are adult, still that bewildered little boy or girl who an adult before they know it. Fear, fear used to rule me--now it is my pet. The self-destructiveness was a learning exercise to know destructiveness, that power, but not to be consumed by it. I must end it now or my soul will be destroyed.

Ledger's Joker is actually a philosophically interesting character with a vast grasp on reality. This explains his profound effectiveness, his capacity to bend people to his will with instantaneous ease, get under Batman's skin, and orchestrate complex symphonic criminal schemes. His only problem is that he is psychopathic, he does not know empathy.

Although most of the people he kills are criminals and other wretched of the earth, he also kills when he pleases. He is bored, ever bored, and to kill his nihilistic ennui he tortures and plays with lives. But the truth source of his power is that he knows the truth of existence, and can wield it like a magician. He loves and knows and is chaos.

But imagine if the Joker helped all those mentally ill people rather than manipulated them to be his pawns. He would have been a lifesaver, a lovely person. But he was marked by crime and society's evils and he decided it would be fun to return the favor!

Anyway that's all over for me. I've decided I want to fight for the light and not my own darkness. But the darkness has strengthened me.

This site is filled with wanna be jokers. They don't have any of the understanding. Craziness can be a form of enlightenment. You may need to do something crazy to be free. But what's crazy? All I know is I am not.

Today I tried to read Michelstaedter, and once again, I've picked a work that quickly developed beyond my comprehension, though I did find the few pages I could understand quite interesting (in particular the image of the lovers trying in vain to "interpenetrate" each other, and in general the futile desire for external possession). Several times I felt that I was on the verge of realizing something tremendous, only for confusion to set back in and rob me of the completed thought. But with most other philosophical works that I've found incomprehensible, the problem seemed to be rooted in my own ignorance of the author's influences and terminology (and so I could happily put down the work and say, "maybe some other day!"); whereas here, I have to worry that the ideas are entirely above my head. His words make sense to me on an individual level, and I seem to be able to form some vague conceptions from them, but I have neither the clarity nor depth of mind to solidify the intended meaning. It is no surprise that Parmenides had such a great influence on him, as I had a similarly frustrating experience trying to understand that philosopher's baffling ontology. There is little reason to believe that reading further will clarify anything, but even if it would, for how long would I have to slog through this haze before reaching a clearing?

The rage you turn against the capable and enlightened is a mere sublimation of the deep hatred you feel for yourself for being unable to call them your peers. You allowed the example of others to set the bar of achievement for you, their example set it too high, and now you shrink from what you cannot achieve. Why hate yourself for your innate incapacities? Why not just lower the bar?

A life spent in the deep end when you cannot swim, desperately struggling not to drown while watching other, more talented swimmers effortlessly dive to the profoundest depths, and effortlessly resurface, again and again, with armloads of glittering treasures, the diamonds of insight, the rubies of wisdom, the gold of deep self knowledge, is invariably a life of insecurity and resentment - a life, I believe, that is not worth living.

Swim to the shallows, my friends, and splash around with the simpler souls. Happiness lies in community with one’s own kind and kin.

I am found to the be in the same darkness that you have described. Subject to the same fate. Death's occupation will pass over me as well and it won't be soon enough. Your hedonistic recommendation, however, is a match being held by a man covered in gasoline searching for light.

I wonder the darkness, same as you, searching for something to illuminate my world All is not lost though. I know there is me. Written before me, is you. We both are aware of our lives in the abyss, the crooked deal put before us. Our fate was doomed in an unjust pact that I have no recollection of agreeing to. Where we differ is that I do not believe this is justification to indulge in the twisted desire of the abyss.

It is duty that pushes me to be better than the abyss. You are right in your assessment of isolation in endless darkness. There is no escape. I do not give in to my torturers. I will add darkness to the pitch black. My efforts will be futile, but I will know the difference between myself and the abyss.

Mormonism is just a hugbox for people who crave structure and purity. The religion paradoxically both claims austerity and makes up rules on the spot.
It's a shortcut to genuine community for people who see themselves as outcast or unlikable, and theres nothing wrong with that, but it's certainly not a defensible worldview and any maturation of your faith essentially amounts to thinking what you're doing is less ridiculous by degrees.
I want to point out that I think faith is important and defensible, however anyone who feels no need to critically examine and disagree with their peers on any number of issues is weak-minded, and mormonism is very unwelcome to those who would question its pseudo-austere traditions and principles

I thought we had something going after months of playful talking in class, smiling and looking into each other's eyes. I thought there was a real connection here.

I finally got the courage to ask her out, and she said yes and then asked for my number. I gave it to her but I didn't even think to ask for hers. It's been nearly two days now and she still hasn't sent me a text. I know finals week is coming up but I guess if she really liked me too that wouldn't matter.

I just feel depressed now. I was so sure that there was a connection and I had built it all up in my head, imagining where it might lead... I think it feels so much worse because she really is, in every sense, so perfect, and there are so few girls like her. How am I supposed to get over this? I keep thinking there's still a chance but come on, I have to be realistic now.

How do I overcome this feeling? It's absolutely crippling me right now and I have to do stuff.
>>
>>12201001
1. Focus on finals
2. Give her time to respond until after finals
3. Know it's a numbers game and there are plenty of women out there similar enough to get those feels going again
4. Go jerk off and study
5. Play persona 5 and ship every girl
6. Think of all her negative characteristics that would start getting annoying after 6 months of dating

Parmenides came quite natural to me, and I saw a lot of parallels to Nicolas of Cusa when I read his Idiota de Sapientia. Perhaps you could amplify your foundation by reading some of his works, if you haven't already.
As for Michelstaedter specifically, I'd recommend just thinking his thoughts through yourself: What do you know that reinforce them, which other ideas to they connect to, what consequences to they carry with them - the usual I suppose

Have a date tomorrow. Haven't spoken to a girl in any kind of intimate pretense in a few years, feel like I have no idea what to say. And due to my past experiences I'm (unsuccessfully) keeping my hopes down, a few times I've had plans just for them to cancel the last minute.

If it does happen I'm sure it'll be fine, I am excited. But I don't know what I even want, I think I want a gf, but I feel incapable of being with a girl for a long period of time. We'll see.
I also don't know if I'm like supposed to go to her door, or do I text her when I get there, or do I wait outside my car for her or stay sitting? Would I hug her if I wait for her outside? I hate that type of shit

I've been getting really depressed recently that I never got to have a high-school girlfriend, or that whole drug-partying experience that I assume almost everyone but me had. I've convinced myself that these experiences are necessary for good creative writing, but I know this isn't true. Am I shallow? I never cared for these sorts of things until recently. My head was always buried in books, vidya, anime, porn, etc. and my only friends were like-minded in their interests (that is to say that we were and are nerds). As my last year of high-school trickles away, I'm only growing more and more envious of my peers and more insecure about my self-worth. I know a lot of pointless literary trivia. I'm thinking of cold-approaching ladies in hopes of a number or something. Is this a good idea? I feel this would be good to develop my character and self-esteem. I don't know what responses I'm expecting; I'm transcribing my train-of-thought or stream-of-consciousness if that interests anyone. Am I alone in these thoughts? What good is being precociously well-read if I'm estranged from the vast majority of my peers? In retrospect, this post is pretty embarrassing. I am NOT underage.

Is your financial situation stable. Is your lifestyle healthy? If not, then deal with these things first.

I am going in. This is how I choose to spend all my time. Sitting on my bed writing things that will have no bearing on anything in the real world. Absolutely nothing. Zero. Just fucking wind blown through a keyboard and blasted out through thousands of wafer-thin chips so autistics cucks like myself can look at themselves in the mirror and chuckle sardonically saying "huh, glad I'm atleast better than that guy." But really. Why. The. Fuck. Can't. I. Write. A. Plot. That. Is. On. Par. With. My. Fucking. Vision. Fuck. I have these ideas. I can touch them, feel them, smell them, and I write them. It turns out well. The secret sauce really is alive in me. Then around 50 pages the words fall apart and I'm holding a grenade that I can only flush down the toilet and hope for the best.
The best advice I got about writing was to think heavily about characters but think absolutely nothing about prose or grammar, just let it all flow out naturally during every iteration of a story. No more meticulous editing that makes reading my stories feel like eating glass.
To top this pressure off I have to be the best of my family's children. There is no goddamned way I am letting anyone else get ahead. All I can do is hope strive and observe.
What do you do if you think you can only get with a girl only after sufficiently humiliating a topic/subject/person/idea/concept/consumer product? Seriously I fucking live off of negativity. It provides me with a release that I have only found in violence and certain songs by Joanna Newsom. When I am with a woman and I cannot sic my own critical machinery on a poor target there is an unregulated niceness in me that feels totally put-on.

you do whatever it is you have to do for 8 hours. The computer screen flickers banal numbers, the people clatter banal words, and as soon as its over you've forgotten the whole day. You make you're way back to your shoebox house. the wind is cold. the feeling is briefly pleasant.

The proposition that the many thousands and thousands of hours devoted to religious thought over the millennia was simply the elaborate indulgence of illusion strikes me as less credible than the proposition that people were tapping into something strange but real.

And mythologists who have studied many religions have identified overlapping patterns and constants that suggest that religion is part of then natural development of the mind.

In biology organisms don't do something unless there is an explicit rationale why.

I feel like an incomplete human being, a golem, a parody, an homunculus . Although all elements necessary for humanity are present in me, it feels like they have no animating principle, my emotions are seemingly planted by an outsider third party, and they merely pass through, I feel sadness, anger, happiness, but it's like nothing changes. From state A, to B, and back to A.
I don't know how to describe. Maybe I'm disappointed at myself for feeling much less about what happened than I think I should. But then, maybe it didn't really matter after all. It usually doesn't.
