Every time I try to do something in the real world or even in normie places on the internet I get scolded,laughed at,ridiculed,bullied etc I just can't comprehend how humans work,how they manage to live day by day buying stupid shit all the time,working,having relationships etc.

All of this alienated me from the real world,other people look like aliens for me,I don't care about what happens in the real world anymore,I don't care about politics,the economy,the elections,COVID or anything that goes outside my own little bubble.

I think I wasn't designed for living in this world,when I watch anime or play games I look at these vast worlds full of great things or incredible people and I wish I lived in those worlds instead of this shitty world,sometimes I cry all night because I don't want to live in this horrible world that has nothing for me,but the only option is killing myself,I wish I could live in my fantasy words,I think that is extremely sad and almost criminal that the human mind is able to create these beautiful perfect worlds but we are forever doomed to watch them from outside,never indulging in our most precious fantasies.

I wish there was some kind of VR machine that plugged into our brains so people like me that just can't function in this world could enjoy our own fantasies living our perfect fantasy lives,normies that enjoy life could enjoy their shit as always if they want to,but for people like us the only solution is suicide.

This is so fucking bullshit,I never asked to be born like this,I never wanted to experience this horrible absurd world but I'm forced to,I'm forced to endure this dogshit until I die and dissolve into nothingness,this is so unfair and I'm so fucking mad at all,I wish I could live in my fantasy worlds inside my brain but I can't,and instead I'm forced to be alive in this shitty world that has nothing for me.

i feel you here

I am subpar in mostly everything. The fact I am still alive is maybe a miracle.

 No.228815

I relate so much. After 27 years of being alive I found no solution. Being the alienated observer in life is only bearable so much, at some point all that's left are drugs.

tone it down a bit

To come and think of it we're all hedonists. we all try to find something that is enjoyable to ourselves yet if we look at the truth we can't actually enjoy it, It's just there to entertain us and that's it.

Yeah, I used to think I'm the only human in the world and everyone else around me is a robot/alien too. Back when I was 8.
You're just wired differently from others.
Oh and yeah, most if not all fantasy worlds take inspiration from the real world. A fantasy world looks nice from the outside but if you actually live in it, not as a main character or even a side character, but as a mob, you'll feel shitty just like irl. People in fantasy worlds are manipulative, selfish and destructive just like in the real world. Unless you choose to live in teletubby land, but why would you go there?

Thankfully it's coming, sadly we will all be long dead by the time neuroscience and electronics advance that much. The huge increase in unemployment caused by advancements in AI might force governments to give people a UBI to keep society from collapsing, so who knows, people in the distant future might even be able to retreat into fantasy completely, without having to work

Just like The Matrix.

I've been working on brainwashing myself to believe in God and stuff. Built in denigration of this world as the unreal.

So many of these comics misunderstand the experience machine. The seeming inability to understand wellbeing as anything other than a heroin fueled stupor probably says a lot about the culture. Being pumped full of two chemicals is wrong since the experience machine would essentially be a magic box with so much complexity to simulate human experiences like awe, beauty, transcendence, etc. You want an experience of overcoming hardship and it feeling meaningful, well you can my boy. The experience machine question is about the sense of the real and why the knowledge that things are simulated can cause a sense of deprivation. If you add conditions around breaks from the machine, utopia so no suffering in the overworld, and other people in it like a vr game the amount of people willing to get in increases.

If you're depressed and suicidal I doubt you care about the sense of 'realness' of the world as much since the world fails to provide base valuable experience. The bullshit about suffering and struggle being meaningful because it's 'real' gets real meaningless after a few years of of it producing nothing but mental suffering and dysfunctional internal experience. Ah cool you want to feel that your climbing the tallest mountain is happening in the real world against set material limits and within the social feeling of being the first among humans. I'm not climbing mountains I'm suffering with a collapsed mind niggah. Plug me in.

Wouldn't it be better if these boxes would provide a peaceful and painless death? Nonexistence is preferable to whatever form of existence these boxes can simulate. What if at some point there will be a technical problem? The person awaking in the chamber will be a retard unable to care for himself, also he will suffer from extreme withdrawals and probably die on a very painful way.

I too used to consider that. Then you realize there's no escaping, nor denying, you're part of this world.

If I am a part of this world then why does it hate me so

 No.228849

>>228848
Because you're part of it. Because you remind people of stuff they hate, because maybe they see stuff in you that they hate on themselves. Maybe because you're just unlucky, and your life is short of affection and understanding but with plenty to anger and hate. Those things are from this world, too. I'm sure you already figured all this out by yourself.
