VR is the next thing coming after internet/comptuers. in VR you can use the internet like you used the internet in your psp, ps3. VR is just a device but the screen can emulate the real internet

>Neural-link will universalize the input
No, Neural-link will alienate and slow down those who can't function with NL input.


"the future" has no problem with multiple inputs such as keyboard, mouse, touch sensor… that is ridiculous. you just made up a problem and are now touting neuralink as the solutio

Don't strawman, slut. My point was clearly that headset is trying to replace a technology that needs no replacement. Neural-link is replacing a set of technologies that need replacement.


I've never tried VR and I don't want to until the resolutions are seamless without the screen-door effect I heard described. Until then a big monitor, or an ultrawide seems to satisfy all needs.


yeah and i repeat there is nothing wrong with current input methods for interacting with computers

the problem is the data. there is a universal data type for humans, just regular text, but i don't think strings are suitable for example transmitting streams of visual information or cohering thoughts

unless you think it is all connected, such that solving input automatically solves how the data is transmitted and stored and processed, i don't see what you are getting at

I want to learn about philosophy but I'm a NEET. is there some pdfs for beginners?

I'd recommend picking up any book written by Schopenauer. He isn't all that deep, compared to others, and was very 'readable' in his flow of discourse. Peronally I wouldn't recommend learning anything -about- philosophy. It's boring. If you want to know about something, dive straight in and see what these people are trying to impart onto you and the world. If you want to know more about some concept that comes up, certainly look things up to reinforce concepts, but in my personal experience, philosophy can easily get boring if you approach it in the wrong way. You might also benefit from watching the old discussions of Bryan Magee, who chatted with many guests at the top of their field discussing specific philosophers and their general stance taken on matters. They're all pretty fantastic. Magee also wrote a huge amount himself and is well worth a read.


I yried reading schopenhauer but he uses too much complicated words or phrases, I don't understand him (like any other philosophers who use complicated words). Any philosophers who use simple words?


I'd say Descartes would be a great place to start. Other options could be Thomas Hobbes, David Hume, Leibniz or Voltaire. Also Spinoza would give a pretty big overall perspective on things. There will always be difficulties in philosophy with regards to the concept and how it is described simply because it's so difficult to put a lot of it into words in the first place, let alone in a way which needs to be rigorous. I've had to read paragraphs in many texts multiple times until I've properly grasped what it is that they are trying to convey; really I guess it's part of the fun, if kind of annoying at the same time.

technology used to fascinate me so much but now i don't like it anymore. when there is some invention coming i always assume there is such a high chance that this will only be used for evil that i usually just disregard it without giving it it's fair chance of impressing me. there is probably plenty of useful stuff i don't care about simply because i am repelled by how they treat people in technology. like cattle, like children. in my heart i feel more and more like an amish, a more simple person who would prefer to build his own wealth with more simple machinery, without the presence of drones, cameras, credit cards,…

AI has been such a turn off. everytime i hear something about AI, my face cringes as if i bit a lemon. i just dont wanna know what it can do anymore. how shit i imagine the world to be if it is full of this artificial perfectly politically correct computer poop.

i've been hearing this word luddite a lot. maybe there is already a sentiment growing.

i wish there were amish who work hard and try to build their own stuff as much as possible and instead of restricting technology and computers totally just have the tech from 1999-2007. just pre-smartphone. i want to go back to this time period.

whenever i see someone get a text in a movie and the text is shown on the screen for me to read as part of a story i already lose interest. i like the old show seinfeld just for it's specific point within technological advancement.


free software is this except its not ludditic like amish its just anti-anti-freedom



yeah i guess. though there is some freedom in not using computers at all that the amish get to enjoy. they do have significant disadvantages because of that though. staying on pre-smartphone technlevel i can not see the same tradeoff. with the internet on a dumb computer they can research materials or order stuff, the smartphone doesn't add anything to that though.


the amish arent a monolith, as far as i can tell from documentaries, they do use modern technology, it just is a communal decision instead of an individual one. some have electricity, some have phone service, some have big ass gas or diesel generoators and trucks. the amish way isn't 'reject technological advancements' its 'consider them and allow our chieftan to decide'. im not amish or know any amish closely so maybe im far off


>arent a monolith

😆 this expression very much reminds me of this sketch: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=G2tLyqfJd54

>as far as i can tell from documentaries

can you recommend one? i've seen a handful. i remember one where one amish got a smartphone and he didn't tell the others and hid it whenever someone else comes along.

i keep dreaming about technologically mindful cities where different technology is preserved but in using it, not just in displaying it in a museum or wikiepdia. in my city for example there is a system of pneumatic tubes that can send little capsules (this is also called capsule pipeline in english). this would be super fun if a city was designed around using such technology.

for connection between rural communities sending telegrams per morse code i consider hilarious. kind of stupid in times of emails but also the reason most emails are sent are stupid and preventable to begin with.

Most humans are evil, which causes a conundrum for non-evil humans. I feel bad for a random human who is the victim of bullying, but considering 90% of humans are bullies, there is a 90% chance the victim would bully other humans if given the chance. Stupidity is a cause of evil behavior, which complicates the conundrum. If you can convince a normal-minded human that its ok to inflict suffering on people who don't drink milk, the normal-minded human would do so.
A lot of people may agree with the analogy, until they hear what I believe are real life examples of this analogy. Never have I heard a good reason why having sex with children or animals is immoral, or why someone who does so should suffer. Most normal-minded humans would inflict suffering on someone who has sex with children or animals, because they are evil, and they are evil because they are stupid.

>alt-right propaganda
Doesn't exist. Propaganda is only so if it's being pushed by a greater power which is using its extended reach and influence to deliver messages to the general public. The Alt-Right is defined partly by its exclusion from mainstream talking zones - from the general public eye. Posting 13/50 to a handful of frogs on an imageboard is not propaganda.

Besides, the Right as a whole is unified in being anti-collapse. It's about repairing and returning. The only ones propagating collapse are the niggers who are burning down buildings and the red-shirt queers who are defending them.

You are a lost and confused ironic shitposter who should really just get off of imageboards. Now call me a CUCK and post ShapiroLaugh.gif.


That would only hand power back to their oppressors lol.


>gets spoonfed obvious propaganda
>lol it's not propaganda it's a legitimate organic movement.
That's why I keep spreading it.


There is a way to act that is acted by normies and low IQ people.

It is a system in which non-platonic friendship is impossible unless you're equally subjugated by someone else. If you beat them like a bad dog or slander them at their every attempt at forming their own opinion or do something without your permission they treat you as their master like said dog. If you treat them like an equal, they will try to dominate you and tell you what to do while immorally attacking you for doing your own thing in your half of the living space. There can be a third person who dominates you both and tells you what to think so that you can outsource your thinking to that person if you are low IQ and your brain burns fewer calories per day than your ears. They will then treat you as an equal as neither of you dominates the other and tells it what to do and what to think.

A form of the aforementioned brain inactivity is practised by Somalis as to not expend excess calories during the famine season.

Group selective morals like self sacrifice and giving after for others are taught in schools while individual selective traits like selective lying and defending your every inch is taught to sons in the Arab world.

Integrity means to tell the truth and have honour when it isn't in your social or material interest. To have integrity, it is needed to have a sense of truth, logic and morals. A person with no sense of truth, logic or morals at all that could only sense loyalty and primal hierarchy would believe its gang leader whatever it said and make up the utmost absurdities if it was such a leader itself.
It is that mind that results in this behaviour.

A complete person with a complete mind would understand your lawn from his even if you didn't pose on the borders all the time or made symbolic minor intrusions to his. The opposite person would instead of investing in a pastime or a craft intrude on your land, living space, dignity, feelings, norms and everything else of yours unless you would mark your territory which you with regards to normies don't have the right to do in practice.

Having no right to dominate immoral normies who live with you, the living space and possessions would gradually fall into their hands, them stopping only at the bare minimum you need to exist as laws and norms are not holding them back. You could try to be aggressive but it would land you in jail 1 day out of 2, rendering it an equal opporPost too long. Click here to view the full text.


a lot i agree with and a lot of edgy stuff i can't quite make sense of, overall 10/10 post though

Can Internet be fixed? Can a bit of its old charm be taken back? Or is already done for?

Even imageboards seem to be in decay

Sometimes I do wish we experience full ecological collapse, just to see people who think nature is irrelevant get fucked and die.


shut up tree hugger


We already exhumed most of the living being, I guess we'll just start eating each other after the collapse.


Talk about the internet and old charm. You can find it on the news, multiple sources say that they were planning to delete old youtube videos. They walked it back and edited this blog, but they were planning to delete a lot of good internet history. They would've gone ahead if a few media websites didn't notice it and start pumping out articles.


good thing we can just eat bugs

It's Palmar Erythema. If you go on imageboards for heath advice you're completely retarded.


Dish soap is actually more toxic than most food waste left on the dish. Boiling water scrape then air dried is the only way.


I've had that but around 10 times worse. My hands (only the outer side, not the palm side that is on your picture) was so purple it looked like it was from a corpse. It was especially bad while I was in the cold temperatures. It happened because of only one thing. Me being a lazy shite, not getting up from my PC except for the most basic of things. It improved and eventually 100% stopped. It's an enigma. Because I did become active, but not by a large margin. I'd say you need just 10 thousands steps a day, same as a daily goal on samsung walking app, and you're golden. It also helped that a friend from special forces made me go on a hike with him. 70km in the hills. Like a Tolkien adventure.
You could also go swimming. Maybe even ride a bike. Anything that is not sitting all day in front of a PC. Bonus option is changing what you eat. This one is obvious, stop eating junk food (if you do so). And don't get me started on the cigarettes and other POISON


>why can i drink water out my mouth but not drink water out my asshole
you deserve the anal fissures you get from the gay sex you do

People who block testosterone generally become nicer persons, who are more sociable. You don't have to transitioning, just begin with bicalutamide and gets a bit of that serenity.

careful the wizchan mods don't like it when science is against their tranny agenda


Testosterone is linked to wanting sex I think. Most truecels I ever met have been low T. On the other hand encountered some low sex drive low t volcels who have been complete amoral sociopaths


Speaking of trannies, do you think there'll be an end to the effect it's having on geeks? Or has it permanently stained it? On one hand I have a limitless amount of high-quality tranny porn, on the other hand it's sad seeing so many obvious geeks whoring themselves out and destroying their body to live out a fetish. The sheer number of tranny pornstars that have geeky tattoos is crazy.


Why would you admit to that?


I suffer from high W

I'm not listening to communist/leftypol garbage or the retard rogan experience but that's about it. Neuroscience and current events is eajy. Nonfiction audiobooks are good too assuming they're not too dated

I'm talking 120 hours here. I'm loading up on the huberman podcast right now

very few people have the time to listen to a 2-3 hour podcast regularly but I'm getting value out of the Huberman podcast right now. If you can get him on an actionable discussion with an expert rather than the usual neurosci trivial it can be surprisingly good



need moar content dudes, I'm burning thru at least 4 hours a day of this and the struggle is real. Self help, redpilz, history that isn't dan carlin reddit tier, lifehacks etc. Feeeeed me

I'm willing to pay some neetoid 30-40 bucks just to aggregate at least 200 hours of good content actually because I don't have the time to effectively search for this. But that'd need certain negotiations


>I'm willing to pay some neetoid 30-40 bucks just to aggregate at least 200 hours of good content
…what. V…value your money more, please.


There isn't close to 200 hours of good podcasts in existence.


A podcast about the Jonestown cult and massacre. Seemed well done from the few episodes I have listened.

Left or right?

For some reason, men and succubi prefer the left but fags prefer the right. Weird shit.


Wrong, tags prefer left too, bro.
