admiring my creations, especially my weapons
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.>>53501
What kind of creations?
consoles and weapons mostly, things that took years of building skills to do
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.
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.
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.
tfw when you create the most technically advanced society in the history of man
and people would rather play stardew valley, animal crossing and farm simulator
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.
because nobody here takes joy in something *that* small
Yeah. Makes me sad that tea time never caught on in America.
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.
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.
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.
People who aren't around nature often develop serious mental health issues. Humans value fertile soil because it means food can be grown.
Tea isn't a single drink. You can find a huge variety of flavours in all sorts of teas.
I’ve unironically thought about getting into gardening to calm myself and relieve the loneliness (sounds retarded I know) but I live in a very small flat. Any advice on how to start?
playing my keyboard
drinking alcohol of any kind, eating popcorn, lounging with my cat on my belly, watering plants, sleeping and napping, sitting on the porch rocking chair, doing dishes, finding leftovers in the fridge, finding leftover pizza upstairs
basicslly just thought of the moments during the day when in happy
It doesn't need be hard, just get some soil and some seeds. Mix them together and make sure it both get sun and water daily. Thats all. I was cooking dinner and use chilli as an ingredients and simple planted the seeds.
but make sure to watch karate kid, this part is vital.
Cleaning (dont mention that canadian quack please)
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.
You must think very highly of humans to think we've made so many new chemicals and spread them so far.
he's canadian? that figures
He's not a quack. He's fucking smart. I wish I could become a millionaire telling trannies and succubi to pound sand while telling crabs to clean their rooms. Fucking jealous.
>>54178>telling trannies and succubi to pound sand
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.
never heard of that saying before, it's supposedly an american saying. neat
Poor raccoon :(
That’s gross dude.
Have you tried dissecting them? It's really interesting to see how the internal organs behave as they dessicate.
upping the ante on that edge
How is that edgy? High schoolers dissect fetal pigs in school all the time. Scientists dissect animals too. It's completely straight-edge.
Same. I've also been observing this habit of mine getting more fleshed-out and intensive during the last two or three years, probably to a needless degree even. I know do a complete clean-up twice a week, otherwise the faintest dirt, dust or body hair just annoy me.
context is everything
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. Since you alone have birthed this edginess through your act of judgment, I am innocent of any edginess for I have birthed exactly 0 edginess through my acts.
Something tells me you are being retarded on purpose as bait to derail the thread.
Isn't that the fundamental principle of Stoicism kek
No, it is more like a really shitty version of a postmodernist deconstruction, which in its self aims to isolate words from context to destroy meaning.
You're the one who said context gives things meaning.
I'll wire you half a bitcoin if you eat it raw
ok, pls sens monie
you need to post evidence jabronie
sned bonies then i wil eat the dead cat
Made a ham sandwich for dinner. Sourdough, cheddar, lettuce, tomato, onion, mayo and mustard. Wasn't aware just how much onions really elevate a sandwich to the next level.
