>Apparently the idea that suicide is sinful is not in the Bible at all. It comes from St Augustine in the 5th century;
I was quite surprised to learn this a while back when I read Minois' "History of Suicide." And Schopenhauer mentions somewhere that suicide isn't even mentioned in the New Testament.

The concept of Hell is also shaky and not so clear if you research it.

How do you square your universalism with the story of Lazarus? Lazarus goes to hell; clearly he is not saved. Also, 'Enter by the narrow gate; for wide is the gate and broad is the way that leads to destruction, and there are many who go in by it' From Matthew 7:13. Do you think that Lazarus will be saved eventually? Do you think that unsaved souls could die along with the body and not be tortured forever?

The idea of hell is evil to me. To suffer unimaginably for eternity. I like the idea of annhiliationism; the unsaved just die and are annihilated. Oblivion. They don't exist as before they were born. The lake of fire is the 'second death' where the soul is just annihilated. Resurrected souls go to heaven hence 'eternal life'. It makes more sense to me, but I know it is considered heresy by most Christians and by the Catholic and Orthodox Churches.

Is there a philosophical reason that you want to commit suicide or is it just personal?

 No.223913

>>223905
I have no idea. I don't know enough; I have never actually read the Phaedo. I'm a dumb Wikipedia scholar with a dilettante interest in these things.

If God or gods do not exist then obviously Plato's argument is false. Even with a deistic worldview, there is no reason to believe that the body 'belongs' to God or the demiurge or whatever.

On the subject of suicide, I have always thought that unless you are in consistent and unyielding pain, you should not kill yourself. If you no longer care about your life then anything is possible and long term plans don't matter; just sell your car or go to Thailand or do anything. Everyone is going to die eventually. Your life will eventually come to an end. In fact, as you get older time will really fucking speed up; it gets more intense the older you get. A decade fucking zips by in your 50s and 60s. Everyone finds out what it's like to die and if there is oblivion or afterlife. You will die eventually.

You might as well stick around and see what happens. Heck, one of the things that keeps me alive is just curiosity to see what happens to North Korea, to see how technology develops in the 2050s and 2060s. See what the world is like in 2100 if I make it that long.
If I ever feel like a failure or loser I just think about how, in the grand scheme of the massive universe, literally everyone human life is like a molecule in a gigantic ocean. Kinda pointless. If I am at the point of suicide and my life no longer has value I might as well rob a bank or climb a giant building or do something cool because I feel I have nothing to lose.

I both believe in and thoroughly hate God. Now a lot of you atheists will think “LOL WhY hATe GuD InSteAD thInK HiM not ReaL?” But disbelief is not an option for me due to intense personal revelation. That’s right, I was in the thick of it, fasting for numbers of days at a time, getting tested by demons and I have fuck all to show for it aside from some psychotic diagnoses I was finally able to milk for neetbux. I’m going to hell and let me tell you God is an importunate douche.

People don't think about God/religion so much in countries like Japan, South Korea, and Singapore; they are more concerned with studying and then working virtually all the time. God is not something they really think about.

I think it might be a lot more complicated than 'intelligent countries don't believe in God.' People turn back to religion in difficult times when things are hard and life is tough. Most ordinary people in developed countries these day on a lower middle class income or above live lives of comfort, luxury and access to entertainment approaching that of a Roman Emperor. There is certainly poverty and misery in rich countries, stress and overwork, but overall the lives of humans today, post WW2 economic boom, are astronomically more comfortable than ever before. Death, pain and mortality is no longer in our face all the time so we don't think about the possibility of eternity or an afterlife.

The average common irreligious person today has far less scientific knowledge than Isaac Newton, Gottfried Leibniz, Georges Lemaitre, Arthur Eddington, and John Lennox; all of these people were/are very religious theists despite understanding more about the universe than 99% of ordinary irreligious people. What's different is not the scientific knowledge the average person has; it's the comfortable lifestyle that people lead.

Perhaps its just all bogged down by people wanting allegory for their beliefs so the "themes" are just echoes of their politics, attempts to appeal to a wider inclusive™ market, and a general cynicism everyone feels about the present and future. Like with other media.

I've read almost entire Black Company series through the last three years. Not bad, but the only books you'd be looking for are the first three (I think they're called "The Books of North"). They're all great and complete in a sense, then it all just takes a downhill.

Not much to tell. Dark fantasy with a slightly moderate take on magic and supernatural. Reasonably violent. I believe the author served in military so that shapes his narration.

I haven't read it but from what I've heard it's very fragmented.
>the kingkiller
I really enjoyed them, they seem to be either love or hate books. The author is a lazy idiot who will probably never release the third book so I can't recommend them unless you don't mind being blue balled
>the wheel of Time
I read the first two books in this series about 20 years ago when I was a kid. I don't remember too much except they were boring, I'd like to try them again and see how I feel about them as an adult.

I would recommend The Fionavar Tapestry, Mistborn, The Conan stories, Discworld and anything Lovecraft wrote

As the heat of battle wears off, more narration is heard:
And so the world became ice. The worldstone, corrupted by Ryloth, tainted the world it so protected. The powerful magic spread over the world, and the world was blanketed in snow and ice.
They move on to another room. James grabs the door handle, and his hand freezes to the cold brass. He ignores it and opens the door, and the rips his hand off the handle. Some skin is left behind.
Narration is hearrd:
The tower needed guarding. Who else to guard but a legion of loyal undead? Unfortunately they proved unideal servants and were discarded. Discarded, discarded.
Golomov notices a iron sack of crawling skeletons attached to the ceiling. Dozens and dozens of skeletons, still animated but trapped. James ignores it and moves on. The party follows the demonic pace. The next room has an altar in the centre. Runes glow with a faint light, scrolls flutter in the wind, half tattered papers attached to ropes around the altar. It pulses with an ominous light.
As they walk around the altar, narration echoes through the room:
Explorers, or could you call them looters, came across a hidden altar - In the old forgotten Empire up in the Dead Dream Tongue. The altar of Ryloth. His history is unknown, but the creation stories of this planet speak of the battle between fire and ice and the compromise they had.
Stories are sometimes littered with truth - These demons were sealed. In altars.The truth; a battle raged over Alindest, and both demons were weakened enough so that men, summoning the means they had, subdued the demons and sealed them away.
Greed, often the bane of men, froze over the hearts of all.
As a witness to my own failings, I cannot judge these men. But their foolishness soon cost them their lives. The demon unleashed, his ancient knowledge of the world put to good use.
And as it ended, the altar glows, the runes glowing one after another. Before the party can even react, a demon appears out of a purple smoke. It rages telepathically into the party's minds, abyssal speech in a foul tongue, and then it attacks.
The party take the severe end of its attacks, golomov attempts to hold his ground. Fith turns into a bear, and attempts to hold the demon at bay. The demon spins around and zaps lightning through the party, and everyone fails their save. James is knocked unconscious, and the rest take heavy damage. Golomov fights the creature and does decent daPost too long. Click here to view the full text.

There's no evidence that these corporations are engaging in political censorship because they receive money from the government. If anything, the fear of losing government money and being punished is probably holding them back from actually engaging in even more censorship. I think it's safe to assume that if Twitter didn't have anything to fear, Trump most likely would have already been long banned and deplatformed for example, along with many others.

The idea of deregulation is interesting and indeed we shouldn't extend legal protections to corporations that engage in activities that are subversive and hostile to the people. That doesn't preclude other actions. There's no reason we shouldn't use the government to bust Amazon or break Alphabet if we can. In fact, the section of "publisher vs platform" is exactly that. The logical way to put it is that we should recognize that we live in a world with governments and that we should use the tools at our disposal, because losing while being immaculate is still losing. We can sort out the details after we destroy the organizations that want to destroy us.

This article doesn't address the underlying issue of oligarchic payment processors. They mention Paypal and Stripe, but those services aren't really necessary, although they provide simplicity for electronic payments.
Hatreon was forced to shut down because Visa suspended their payment processing services to Hatreon. The same thing just happened last week with NewProject2; this time, Mastercard suspended their services.
What's the libertarian solution to this? Create your own multinational credit card network? Mastercard and Visa basically control this field of the market, and they're actively partaking in censorship.

I don't think it really matters if the corporations are engaging in censorship because they receive government funding. The crux of the issue is that these corporations are receiving the aid of government coercion to restrict new players from gaining a foothold in tech industries. The reason why it's problematic that companies like Alphabet are censoring people is because they've attained a practical monopoly in the industry that they're a part of, and they maintain this monopoly by subverting the free market. Big tech's behavior is not an indictment of the free market, it's the exact opposite.
Imagine if there was a serious competitor to Google or Youtube. It would strongly incentivize these companies against wantonly deplatforming people, since that would just grow the market share of their competitors. And if none of the competitors were willing to host the deplatformed individuals, well then there's a brand new market that's ripe for the taking. In our current system there's a multitude of regulatory hurdles that prevent startups from realistically growing in size the way Youtube did back when it was created.

at this point i don't believe there's anything i can do. i try working towards things but the little failures i encounter and stupid mistakes i make along the way just seem to confirm that i'm not really cut out for much. way too defective. i barely passed high school and i couldn't handle the psyche warfare that was community college. i'm 26. now i'm becoming a second class citizen in a country turning into the third world all over (i'm californian) and i have nowhere to run, i'm basically just a sitting ageing duck. i was thinking about getting into the trades but i don't think i have what it takes for that either. i keep thinking i should just get a labor job in some other state or country with less people and real weather cycles, relocate there, and hopefully eventually just die on the job one day. or maybe i will take my savings and go out with an overdose or exit box in a nice cabin during the winter.

but it seems like if i'm denied basic human relationships, and i don't have a lot of frivolous or material desires (i no longer enjoy anything whatsoever) there should be some interesting work i can dedicate myself to instead. i've seen a lot of people over at /hob/ do it, but i can't seem to.

For a lot of normies, music is a budding point around which socialisation can occur. Obviously, from the 1950s to the mid 00s, music was not easily accessible for free in your hand. It was a significant investment of income for young people; people would have to go to someone else's house to listen to their vinyl records or CDs. It was a very social thing. People with similar music tastes would stick together and form cliques and then subcultures; record labels would obviously encourage and exploit this to sell more. With the absence of at least paucity of gaming/social media/internet/vidya, fitting in and socialising was way more important to young people in decades gone by and music was a major medium through which to do that.

These days, with music being effectively completely free in a handheld device that people listen to mostly privately with earphones, the idea of music taste being part of your identity or tribe is no longer relevant.

What even is the point of those things? It stores your password on a central server or somewhere in your computer so it can autofill forms with the password when it comes time to enter it? The password manager itself probably needs credentials too so what if those get lost or forgotten?

They are to store and create strong passwords.
You as a human realistically can't remember multiple strong passwords nor are you likely to want to manually type in strong passwords every single time you want to log in to something.

By using a bit of automation to make thing more convenient it makes it more likely for the user to use significantly better security measures.

But if you want to do it the old-fashioned way of having a notebook and manually typing a random 16+ string of letters, numbers, and symbols then go for it I guess.

I was born with weird mentality. I give you few examples of it.

1. When they bullied me at school, sometimes I thought in my mind that perhaps they have reason for it and it may be partly my fault.
2. When they insulted me at school I did nothing about it, because I thought that if I want to push somebody in the face then I must have good reason for it and being insulted is not enough a reason. I couldnt in most cases insult back thanks to social phobia.
3. Teachers were mad at me when I were fighting with my bully few times at elementary school, so thanks to that I thought that I must avoid fighting with bullies no matter what, because teachers wont like it. So, after elementary school I practically havent fight with anybody, despite being bullied in every school I went to.
4. If somebody told me that I have to do something, the way he wants I did it (even if when in my mind I knew that I should do what I want instead of listening to some moron). If I did what somebody ordered me to do and I didnt like it, then in my mind I was insulting the guy who gave me order (I was calling him moron or something like that)
5. In the middle school even smaller guys than me bullied me, because of me being brainwashed by the teachers that fighting agaisnt bully is bad.
I m ashamed of that.
6. Lots of people yelled at me, mostly for no reason, just because they were frustrated. In the adulthood - I understood - thats just their mentality, which I dont have.
7. When I graduated from middle school, then I wanted to choose high school, but my mother recommended me other highschool, so I did what she wanted me to do and after years I was mad at her, because I could choose better highschool with better people, instead of listening to her.


Everything went so wrong… What do you think about me?

> I wonder if it was always like this or if it got worse the last years.
It's always been like this, it's just that the average person did not have access to the most efficient means of domination and resource-hoarding.
It's why the average male now needs to spend 4+ days in the gymn a week, many males take steroids and then compete in martial arts, try to max their salaries through coding or finance, then in their spare time watch youtube videos about building charisma in order to hack their way to the top faster.
The genetic game has just stepped up it's efficiency, and all of us caught out of the game can now see it happening in real time.

I think it gets worse as society reaches the limits of expansion. You saw this shit in Europe at first and that's why people fled to America. Then even on the east coast people got sick of this shit and started moving west. Now there is very little land left that you can flee too and call your own. Now we are surrounded by ruling-class stock that is constantly trying to one-up each other to the top. That's why I think homosexuality is a natural product of this, as it helps cut down the population of unbearable pretentious people. But even that shit is being circumvented like in how Anderson Cooper got a surrogate for his child (instead of adopting).

Consequences of Agenda 21:
- Homosexuality to decrease fertility rate.
- Increasing obesity to decrease the fertility rate.
- Destroying religions because atheism has the lowest fertility rate.
- Increasing standard of living of the poorest nations at whatever expense one can get away with with the richer nations, because wealth means a decreased fertility rate.
- Encouraging people to live in high density areas because that decreases the fertility rate.

I can testify that the "staring at the bully" trick does work, usually. Tried it with a verbally abusive family member and he couldn't make eye contact at all, just kept looking at my shoes. He did keep berating me but he was visibly uncomfortable and mentioned how I was "looking at him like he was a mean guy".

So long as you can keep that dominant mindset without folding I think the best thing to do is to remain professional and don't fall into the trap of defending yourself to the bully or appearing submissive.

Well… I didn't win it, again. Nobody has won it tho, and third time is the charm.

That being said, any other wizzies trying their luck and fantasizing about winning the lottery? Would you like to win the lottery at all? How would you deal with your newfound wealth and fame? My favorite pastime is to daydream and since I've been daydreaming about this all day everyday for a few days I thought I'd make a thread.

Honestly, the only reason I haven't bought a doll yet is it would be money I'd otherwise spend on lottery this year.

I usually bought lottery tickets at supermarket and CVS vending machines, but most of those aren't working, or the store unplugged them to prevent crowds or lines. Been going into random liquor stores and gas stations when they're empty or one other person, and they don't seem to mind me coming in just to buy lottery tickets, as long as I have on a mask while inside.

no because i saw firsthand my parents, uncles, and relatives all waste their fucking money all my childhood on lotto tickets and scratch off. like fuck you could have just saved that money and bought me clothing and toys or videogames, or just bought decent food with it. so yeah i think gambling is a weird addictive poison against poor people

A lot of churches have themselves been overrun by the same. Those values have been attacked from every direction and the institutional support that underwrote them eroded such that there is no organised backing for anyone who voices them.

If Trump loses the war will continue but through official means, if he "wins" it will continue as it has, with the opposition continuing not to recognise him as legitimate and implementing their program through state and judicial channels while using lawfare and corporate collusion to suppress unapproved political speech.

It's too early to tell how much of a long term game-changer to the economy and culture corona-virus will be. Certainly, the amount of debt governments are getting themselves into to prevent mass unemployment is phenomenal; will it mean the triumph of Keynesian economic policy? That's kinda been the way things have been
going since the 2007/8 crash.

Culturally, I've no idea how this will affect our mentality.

I would be wary of being sure that nothing else we be important in this decade. We have no idea what will happen. The USA and China are gearing up for a new cold war. There will be problems with the environment. Trump winning again this November will increase political tension and instability; Trump losing will also create tension and instability.

Well, that's complex and depends on the operating system and applications. You can easily execute a system command to list out current running processes (ps on linux, tasklist on windows), but getting data from other applications is tricky when there isn't an API or they encrypt their data files.

For instance, to get browser history, you have to know where the browser stores that information. For Firefox and Chrome it's an SQLite database file (lookup the location online). It's readable with an SQLite library and some investigation of the table structures.

perl is so cool.
joe camel is cool.
perl sounds like pearl. thats like expensive.
larry wall is a cool looking dude. hes like a rms that trims his beard.
perl used to be known as the glue that holds the internet together. then boring php and js came.
state of the onion sounds cool, like an intelligence brief.
"perl monks" sounds cool. its just like "the knights of lambda" in coolness.
and camels were the best in aoe2. they could beat knights.
i think its better than python or c or scheme as a language for newbies. "print "hello world"" is a full and valid perl program. its good at manipulating text, automating stuff, some web stuff, piecing programs together. its like bash on ritalin. perfect for people new to this.
perl books have cool names. like "The Camel Book". and "High Order Perl", that one sounds sophisticated. compare that to automate the boring stuff with python which has boring in its name.
pythons name is based on a boring english tv comedy show. might as well make a mr bean programming language. its used by people who see computers as only a means to an end.
perl can be obfuscated. python obfuscation? pfft.
i think everyone should start with bash, then perl, c++, c and assembly. it looks like theyre all that you need to get real stuff done. then if computing isnt just a means to an end you can read about APL, Prolog, scheme.

Really depends here. I live out of my sedan-sized car, and I love it actually. I would never tell someone to BUY a van for vanlife, but if you have a van or car you can absolutely live very comfortably out of it if homelessness becomes a possibility. You'll need income for the occasional repairs and of course gas, but it's often a TON cheaper than an appartment, and you can follow the work around the country.
