Sometimes when I'm walking I like to fantasize that its in a post-apocalyptic world where I'm the only human left alive. When the cars pass, I imagine that the self-driving thing actually happened. And so the ghosts of self-driving cars are my only company in an empty world.

Its my fantasy, so mostly I don't think of the practicalities of it, but sometimes I do.

Like finding the most fertile farmland, and having a self-sustaining farm with livestock and fruits.

Or going on a grand expedition to Alaska cross the Bering strait, Siberia and the Steppes to cross from America to Europe.

Or more scifi, before the collapse, a robot civilization was prepared to take care of the survivors, and now I'm the only one left.

Do you ever imagine being the only human left alive? Its so peaceful and relaxing for me. Its my happy place.

I don't quite dream that I'm the last human, but I do fantasize about being the inventor of true VR tech and building a megacity in the Sahara desert that anyone can go to and get permanently hooked up to live their life in VR. Your experience in VR lasts 4 times as long as real time, so if you live 50 years in real life, it will seem like 200 years in VR if you want. Robots look after your body of course.

I would be one of the first to hook up, and I would transport myself to a sparely-populated isekai world and live my life in relative peace and quiet in some small mountain elf village with a busty wife and a dozen kids.

I imagine spending a lot of time hanging out at empty university libraries. Ironic, that colleges are such dens of normies. But with only me left, they will finally serve their true purpose as temples of wisdom.

And I would write my utopian constitutions, aided by the benefit of only having to find harmony with a population of 1

I'm not even depressed as much as i know, but sometimes it can be really depressing to think about the shitty limitations provided by envirornment and genetics. Life can be more tedious than average when you IQ(WAIS-III)is below your shithole's average, as if it wasn't not enough to deal with these normies and their annoying local culture.The concept of libertarian free will is a mirage, but it's still kind of hard to accept that, i feel like i'm watching a autistic comedy movie.

How do I go about becoming a hermit? I want to live in a forest far away from everyone. The lockdown in my country has taught me that I am the happiest when isolated. I am aware that survival in nature is no small thing but it beats the shit out of having to be a waggie and being around normies. Also what are some comfy places I can live in without having to worry about taxes, socializing, etc?

The only way to do this practically is to have a lot of money and paradoxically one would (probably) want to do this in the first place to avoid the trappings of the rat race to get a lot of money. Wizchan seems to be distinctively against working to get ahead in the world and many would rather live bellow the poverty line on neetbux than get a job.

Living in the wilderness disconnected from society would suck anyway. The reality is you would have to work far harder to survive than if you just got a regular job.

I am allergic to every moisturizer in existence and it drives me up the wall because I will be dry and apply product only to find it irritating days later. Anyone have any tips?
I tried to use sunscreen as a moisturizer because I read online it can be a good choice for those of us with sensitive skin and I am waiting to see if it helps at all.

My skincare routine is to wash my face with a cleanser (soap free) and then use an every day exfoliation cream and try to limit how often I wash my face. I have OCD so I wash myself very often and it makes my skin so dry and red it is really a nightmare.

The last time I upgraded my GPU I bought a GTX 1070. All these years later and I still feel like I don't need to upgrade anytime soon, runs everything I play perfectly… not that I give a shit about the latest AAA titles anyway.

20XX wasn't worth the upgrade to me, and 30XX is probably the last graphics card you'll ever need so congrats if you got one for a fair price.

I still have a 1050ti. Pretty puny card compared to a lot of modern ones, but the prices are so high, and I don't play enough new/AAA games to justify spending ~$600+ on a new GPU just to play a few games.

 No.56281

I have said it before and I will say it again, right now with current GPU prices the best value for money is a console.

For $500 you get a fine machine similar to a RTX2070 with support for 5 years, that's completely unthinkable in GPU's.

The only exception would be if you live in South America or eastern europe where consoles are far more expensive and if you're gonna pay $1100+ may as well get a GPU.

If you want a toy sure. Unless you can install a real OS on those machines they're worthless. Modern gaming is terrible and you can't even emulate on them.

VR has been dead for years, same way 3D had. It's a neat gimmick but it adds too much complexity over using a standard TV. 3D belongs in the cinema where you go to see a fancy effect once in a while then move on with your life. It doesn't belong in the home where minor positioning can ruin the entire experience. The 3DS dropped 3D entirely pretty early, it's best feature was setting it on but 0 3D so it dimmed the screen and caused less eye strain.

I can emulate on my XSX just fine using retroarch, up to certain PS2 games and pretty much everything before that.

Grats. Been a couple of years since I got out of tech school. Not sure if you're outside the US, but can speak about my time. First job was aluminum, cut, tacked, then tigged. Since I was new they cut me D:
Second was steel, but while I got to do stuff at construction sites they lacked a supervisor for the welding department and I never got to. Eventually left. Was NEETing in between. Now I'm finally at a place that doesn't do heavy lifting and has their act together. Hope you do well. It's a job that's hard on the body and can be dirty, but it isn't retail.

Book discussion.
Previous thread: >>54504

So it's been about a year since I read Arabian Nights (>>54901, >>54902) and last night I was staring at the ceiling before going to bed and out of nowhere felt like going through it again and started reading. Not sure why, I think it's because it turns out it's my favorite literary work out there. This was not obvious to me until very recently but it's becoming clearer now. Let's see how a second reading feels like. I feel like this book is everything I look for in literature. Weird fantasy, horror, mystery. It feels exotic and outlandish and you never follow the same people for long. You catch them at the turn of the tide, just before the angel of death comes for them. It races through this odd, tragic world at a steady pace, highlighting the shitshow that is humanity. Beasts, monsters, men and succubi who in their fear and ignorance become even more cruel and unpredictable than a Djinn. Ghouls feeding their young with the flesh of a young prince. Warm colors of a beautiful palace, where the powerful fill their stomachs with delicate pastries in a hurry, before their inevitable demise. The peaceful, lulling sounds of a gentle breeze in the desert. Dromedaries feeding on the flowers of an Acacia tree under a clear bright sky. Fishermen dreaming about rings of sorcery inside the belly of a blue tilapia. Forgotten ruins, forgotten, sleeping demons. I want to go back to those places again and when you read it, for a moment, you're there.

Also I got a warning for posting 'test' on the previous thread. Apologies, I wanted to check if it was still bumping and forgot to delete it.

I don't know how to distinguish between normal and non normal. I am trying to find something that amuses me as much as visual novels do now that I have already read most of the good ones. I suspect that the main reason that I enjoyed visual novels so much is that they allowed me to self insert so I didn't feel that I was observing the story of someone who was more boring than myself. So it would be true to say that I am looking for validation of my own ideals.

At first I was just reading VNs for simple amusement but then I read too much philosophy. Now I don't feel comfortable reading VNs anymore because they are rooted in the particular instance of recent Japan whereas I now want to attempt to experience universality. The problem is, of course, that most of the literature I attempt to read does not meet the lofty standards that some philosopher hold it to have according to my tastes.

The source of this distaste is probably my own undisciplined mind and poor understanding but the gods have decided that I must continue to push the boulder up the hill as punishment for my ineptitude.

I’m curious to know what kind of philosophy books and visual novels you’ve been reading. I’m somewhat similar, but not quite. I don’t enjoy reading anymore but still do it out of obligation, or because I don’t have anything else to do. The only book that got close to describing how I feel was a short novella by Georges Perec called A Man Asleep. I suppose any depressed wizard can self-insert into that.

>Thus Spake Zarathustra is your book.
Indeed, it is the kind of book that I desire. The problem is that Nietzsche has introduced the puzzle of literature that still torments my mind. I also now feel compelled to listen to classical music even though, again, I don't really like it that much.

>>60699
I've done a fair amount of research into the history of philosophy, the individual philosophers that I'm most familiar with are Plato and Nietzsche. My favourite VNs are Air, Tsukihime, Subahibi, Umineko and Kikokugai. While I like VNs I don't have much fondness for anime which I conclude must be because it does not have the memorable soundtracks that VNs have and because the VN format is easier to project one's own attitude into so that while characters and plotlines that are uninteresting in anime become far more intruiging in VNs because it feels that I am the one who is experiencing them and not someone else.

I'm currently listening to Don Quixote and it is tolerable so far. I suppose I'll start posting in the audiobook thread shortly because listening to books is easier than reading them, although it can be easy to zone out and lose track of what is happening.

Nebuchadnezzar. Man this game caught me by surprise. Just found out about this title 2 days ago. It has been consuming my life like no other game in a very long time. I'm a fan of the old city building managers like Caesar and Cleopatra but this one really hit it for me. Starting with the setting. Ancient Mesopotamia is one of those historical periods I was always fascinated by but for whatever reason never actually got in the right frame of mind to really sit down and read about it more closely. Nebuchadnezzar is divided by campaigns where you manage important Mesopotamian cities, from the neolithic and early bronze age, all the way to late iron age and classical antiquity. From Sumerians to Neo-Babylonians.

If you have played some city management games before this, it will be familiar to you but there are some very charming things about Nebuchadnezzar that I quite enjoy it and makes it perhaps my favorite of the bunch. I think the most interesting thing about the gameplay is how insidious failure is. You make a mistake but it won't be obvious at all until your city starts to fall apart, very slowly at first and then a sudden collapse if you neglect to realize it in time. There's a fair amount of micromanagement here which makes your mistakes harder to notice. You are just busy doing something else, without realizing a crisis is coming your way. This aspect alone fascinates me but there's a lot more to it than that.

Now, I've never ran an ancient, craddle of civilization city in real life before but I imagine this game does a good job simulating that in some areas. For example the constant fight for adequate space. It's no coincidence all ancient civilizations began near a river. It's amazing what a logistical nightmare Nebuchadnezzar can become because of the location of a river. If you're not very careful with how you plan things out, you'll waste that very, very precious valley space and your entire city will be churning in pain as you try to avoid your citizens to run out of bread. There's a very satisfying learning curve here where each catastrophic failure will teach you very valuable lessons.

Speaking of failure, this game doesn't pull any punches. It's quite hard if you compare to most games these gays, even on normal setting. Just learning how everything works is not enough. It will also test your patience in a good way. The objectives for each campaign really test how well your city is running. One of the common goalPost too long. Click here to view the full text.

I calmed down and tried to see if there was a much easier way out of the death spiral that I wasn't thinking of.

Nope. Apparently everyone has this criticism of the game. A lot of people:

How do I completely rid myself of any attatchments to the normalfag world. I've already accepted love doesnt exist, that the world was created to generate suffering to feed the demiurge, Im losing attracting to 3dpd as well, but still how do I become truly deattatched to the normalfag world.

I would reccomend that you don't focus on movements that are derivitave of philosophy and instead focus on the source. In other words stop taking gnosticism so seriously and instead read Plato. True wisdom can only be found if you ignore vulgar religious movements and pop culture.

This is just some way that some people who suffer misfortunes try to make themselves feel better by tricking themselves that they really are better off because of it. I went through a 2-year-long phase of that after reading Nietzsche and Deleuze, so I find it very trite and a bit too dramatic.

It's only when you can more detach from it all that you can you look at it a bit more objectively with an aristocratic cold disdain, like Schopenhauer and Lovecraft (interestingly, one an extreme idealist and the other an extreme materalist).

>"Life itself is a sea full of rocks and whirlpools that man avoids with the greatest caution and care, although he knows that, even when he succeeds with all his efforts and ingenuity in struggling through, at every step he comes nearer to the greatest, the total, the inevitable and irremediable shipwreck, indeed even steers right on to it, namely death." - World as Will and Representation, § 57.

Suffering is useful (sometimes) because it helps you navigate more accurately the "sea full of rocks and whirlpools." But regardless of how amazing you become at it you still arrive at the "irremediable shipwreck." So these lessons and insights are ultimately futile and pointless.

>Suffering is useful because it helps you achieve X

And why is X useful?
>X is useful to achieve Y, which helps achieve Z
And why is Z useful?
>Because… well, because it's desirable in itself and means you're some Übermensch badass
But even achieving Z is ultimately pointless. You then die and it all fades away and is forgotten forever as if it had never existed in the first place.

Now, you can be an idealist like Schopenhauer and believe that consciousness and "The world is my representation" is eternal and infinite, with no beginning and no end. Or you can be a staunch materialist like Lovecraft and believe that the universe is purely composed of particles and their meaningless motions, and it would make no difference for the value of one's own life. If my consciousness has always and will always exist, then infinite lifetimes full of the greatest wonders and horrors, and Herculean achievements and catastrophic failures, have all already been forgotten, as will this lifetPost too long.

>Suffering is never without aim or purpose. It makes us stronger or richer in experiences. Without suffering life would be boring.
And without life there is neither boredom nor suffering nor stronger and richer experiences, or any experiences for that matter, which is the whole point of the discussion.

There is no aim or purpose, it's only invented afterwards. You know, even your daddy Nietzsche said that last one.

Like that other poster I have no interest in pessimism, which is why I tend not to post on /dep/ except for when my melancholy overwhelms me. If you truly believe that life is nothing but suffering then you have a lifetime to rectify that problem yet your type chooses to whine on imageboards instead of taking this opportunity. I am not one that believes that the immediate passions are the greatest dimension of human feeling, but I believe that it is possible to detach the self from these sensatations and view them with the rational faculty, at which point you realise that these sensations are unimportant in the grand scheme of things.

What can one use to mix with urine to remove the smell of it?
My previous piss jug strategy was to fill large 1.5 liter bottles and hide them with other trash and throw them out but:
1. Almost got busted (trash full, classic).
2. Used to drink soda, don't anymore, so no bottles.
Now I'm using some jugs and I'm careful to empty them in the toilet while everyone is sleeping.
The thing is the smell. Imagine the smell. I've tried vinegar, but it just smelled like vinegar and piss.
I tried using dish soap, and there was some limited success.
I bought some "calcium nitrate tetrahydrate" shit for portable toilets, and I think it removed the smell,
I'm not sure. It made the piss in the jug turn really brown and like… separated into almost water on top completely
covered with white mold. Probably lack of air and/or light. I'm not going to sleep with an open piss jug.
I'm considering smuggling that piss jug into the woods to empty it.

Something that's peripherally related to what your talking about; I've found that I can make myself do things more easily if I perceive them as being agreeable to my own personal disposition. So I might not feel like working out for example, but if I imagine myself, or think of myself, as being a Shaolin monk or something all of the sudden I might actually want to do it (as retarded as that may sound).
But it only works if the activity coincides with my preconceived agreeable image -so this wouldn't inspire me to start benchpressing because that's not something Shaolin monks do, but I'll feel very inspired to start doing calisthenics.
I've even had periods where I imagine myself as simply being a self-controlled person (like a Batman type character) and this has a cascading effect onto everything, whereby I can make myself do anything at all. I can workout several times a day, I can read for hours at a time, I can easily refuse food and diet, etc. -and all of this become completely effortless.

The biggest problem with this is that the effects don't seem to be permanent, and I cannot consistently get this process to work. It's not verbal, or a matter of just visualizing. For this to work I have to convince myself on a very base conceptual level, which I can't necessarily consciously control.

The more you observe yourself like this, the more you'll notice how your perception influences your motivation by making things seem appealing or the opposite. The perceptual frame itself is actually this "preconceived agreeable image" that you've observed that you have and you've noticed that aligning your current activities with that image makes them seem more appealing. Being conscious and aware of this will help you take advantage and help direct yourself more easily, but it's still something that operates inside of the frame, rather than changing it.

A perceptual shift is when that "preconceived agreeable image" shifts into something different and this can cause radical changes to your behavior. The way this is experienced is that old behavior will simply stop making sense to you, so you stop doing it, or new behavior suddenly becomes very natural and effortless. These shifts are possible, but I can't say what exactly causes it. Visualizations and mental imagery don't necessarily, otherwise you'd be having shifts any time a thought popped into your head which would be horrific in its own way (think of people with extreme "mood swings").

Visualizations and mental imagery are tools that can definitely cause a shift, but it's important what you imagine and visualize and it's important in very subtle ways that aren't very clear to me currently. From Bruce Ecker's work, you can force a shift to happen if you guide a person to experience two incompatible realities side by side and it will have to settle on one. For instance, a person might have this very rigid and unchangeable view of reality where people are dangerous no matter what and within that frame, anxiety and anxious behavior are compelling. If you can get the person to experience people as safe or call up a vivid memory of such an experience, then use a visualization technique where those two contradictory realities are set side by side, it's highly likely to cause a permanent shift. I guess perceptual frames have to make sense and be useful to the person, and a contradictory experience will likely dissolve even the most deeply held frames.

This could be generalized and simplified: perceptual frames have "features" or "expectations" that can be contradicted and violated experientially in order to cause them to dissolve or rapidly re-organize into something else.

Stopped when I went broke and now the negative health effects scare me away too.
I hope they never invent cheap and healthy alcohol.

1 dl Vodka and 4 dl Sprite was my go-to because I was a babby.
Chugged 3 to 4 of those and had a good time. Then the tolerance started going up.
At worst made me gain like 10 kg in two months, it was pretty bad but made some good memories at the same time.

I would be considered an alcoholic, but that is really just another stupid boomer construct that isn't representative of how the real world works at all. Well, for me, at least. I used to spend just about every waking hour drunk, aside from the hours I spent of work (I sure as shit showed up to work drunk, though). Now I only drink maybe once or twice a week as a treat.

Long story short, the pandemic allowed me to stay isolated in my wiz cave for the past 2 years, which did wonders for my mental health. My depression was cured, allowing me to enjoy things again finally. It got to the point where being drunk 24/7 made me feel worse than being sober. Well, most of the time, at least. I didn't give up alcohol, but I no longer feel a compulsion to drink all the time. 'Once an alcoholic, always an alcoholic' is fucking bullshit. No, I wasn't addicted to alcohol. In fact, I had an entire case of wine sitting in my home for months but I never felt compelled to drink it because I am not that much of a wine drinker. Younger me would've chugged the fuck out of that case because I was using the booze to cope with the shit life I had. The shit life that I was fucking gaslit by everyone into believing I should be happy to have. Now that I am no longer depressed, I see alcohol as more of a life enhancement and not a requirement to stay sane.

My birthday is next week. I think I will celebrate it with an expensive whiskey and a delicious cake.

You could distill sugar and yeast in a still you bought off amazon, you know. And I will go on without you. I never felt that it was a problem until the 7-9 drink mark, at which point I'd begin to feel a bit ill. I fell off the wagon again, got an natural ice in my hand again as I post. Cheers mate.
