I honestly haven't put any effort in gardening this chili plant, I just placed the seeds in the pot with dirt and this how it turned out a few weeks later. It's pleasuring seeing it growing day by day and im looking forward eating the chilli once its red.
It has such incredible calmness to it..

What are the small things that gives you some joy in this 'life'?

 No.53501

admiring my creations, especially my weapons

 No.53502

Plants are always calming. I have some basil and bellpepper growing myself. What helps give me my small pleasures is writing poetry and reading. Writing is very relaxing, reading depends too much on the book but when you get one you like its awesome. Hope your chili grows big and tasty wiz!

ah that sounds nice. I really love basil in food, you use it for that purpose?

I also enjoy writing and reading, what kind of writing/reading you enjoy? Im currently switching between Carl Jung and Eckart Tolle.

Yeah I use it in food. It's so good! I like philosophy, history, and anything that you could call AnPrim or wiz-tier I really enjoy. Big on French writers too, really love Louis Fernindand Celine and Georges Perec. A large chunk of my books are French lol. I'm about to start on Ligotti's "Conspiracy Against the Human Race", I just finished "The Book of Disquiet". Disquiet was beautiful, one of the best books I've read. Extremely relatable for us all Pessoa was a wiz.

Those two authors sparked a new interest, never heard of them. I own a hardcover of 'The Book Of Disquiet', however i haven't managed to get through it just yet. I decided to read it when i was at my lowest and I allowed my self to accept another downpath.. I went through some pages while writing this and now i want to finish it, especially when you described it as beautiful. When it comes to French authors, i havent read to many but among my favorite is Édovard Leve and his book 'Suicide'. His written in a very simplistic one line sentence, yet unique. It's written as the reader was the one committed the suicide.

90% of people used to be farmers before the past couple hundred years or so. I think it's more common to enjoy gardening than most people think.

 No.53508

never thought about that. do you think farming for so long has implanted something in us that doing it is rewarding on a primitive level.

Yeah definitely finish it, Pessoa is the man. I will have to read "Suicide" next, that simple style sounds good. You can easily be too wordy in literature. I've wrote a book of poetry over the past 2 years that I'm about to publish this summer. Will share it here first!! Another good small pleasure, a nice cup of tea. Hot tea. I like irish breakfast and earl grey myself

Cleaning. Feels pretty good to make a room spotless. I don't quite like the process of it itself but that moment when I finish it and lean in a corner to have a good view and the entire room looks fresh and clean. Pretty good.

Yes, I think there was an evolutionary selection for people who enjoyed growing things. They tended to survive better because they had more food and could have more kids therefore the genetic predisposition has been passed down strongly. Many of the things we enjoy I think we enjoy because it imparted some sort of evolutionary advantage. Take long distance running for example. It makes little sense for people to just run for no reason and yet millions of people around the world do it all the time because they enjoy it. Why would they enjoy it? Because their cave-man ancestors evolved a genetic quirk to make them enjoy it and then those ancestors were much better at running down food and reproduced more so the trait was passed down strongly. Whether an ancient evolutionary adaption like running or a relatively recent one like farming, any time a mutation causes enjoyment in some sort of activity that ends up being wildly beneficial, it will end up being expressed widely in the population. I think farming was definitely a big enough change in how humans survive to leave a genetic impact on our psyche and in fact there is some research out there showing gardening can have beneficial effects on people's mental health and well-being. We have been disconnected from both the hunt and now the fields as well, we are trying to adapt to being wage slaves but I question if any of us should want to make that adaptation.

Yeah. Makes me sad that tea time never caught on in America.

 No.53552

>>53549
Has to do with cultural history and certain associations.
Country preferred coffee instead, which was more of a unpleasant utility drink to increase productivity rather then a pleasant beverage that happened to have positive side effects.

Only relatively recently (the past 30 or so years) has it become fashionable to make coffee that isn't imo noxious as far as flavor. Even then it is still tied to it being a drink of utility culturally speaking so rituals similar to tea time haven't spread.

Tea is not pleasant. It tastes like hot leaf water. The only reason it became popular is because it was expensive.

 No.53554

>>53553
Taste pretty good to me, especially with a little sugar or honey to add a complimentary sweetness.
Though a well brewed tea doesn't need it and is quite nice on it's own. Especially the white and green teas.

 No.53568

>>53553
Wine isn't pleasant either the first time you try it. But as you continue developing your taste and slowly work your way up the quality ladder, every drop becomes a joy. Same with tea.

It seems somehow you have managed to keep the structural integrity of your neurological pathways despite existing in the 21st century. I genuinely commend you and slightly envy your not burnt out receptors.

In the span of less than 100 years due to all the ground breaking discoveries in chemistry and theoretical physics man kind has opened up a literal “pandoras box” of drugs/chemicals which have effects on the human brain. Our entire planet is now laced with never before seen molecules of all sorts. The food supply, tap water, drugs from the doctors or even over the counter, in all likely hood even if you aren’t living in a dense city the air might still have something foreign in it wherever you are.


All I’m trying to say is that in my opinion a lot of mental health based suffering can be attributed to a chemical imbalance in the brain. As someone who grew up being over-stimulated with tv/vidya/recreational substances and is prone to major depression genetically I truly wish my brain would fire hits of dopamine off for the types of things you just listed off but especially >doing dishes

Keep on keeping on my wizza and don’t forget, you can’t miss what you never had.

He never did that though. He even said that he'd respect a tranny's pronouns if they wanted to be called by that. His issue was with the government making it illegal to call people by the wrong pronouns.

If the only thing edgy about it is the context then the act itself has no intrinsic edginess. The only edginess that exists is the edginess that you have attached to it.
