Be weird, be (You).

Most wizards at this point have probably already figured out, understood, that this material existence is an illusion. That none of this human shit matters in the slightest.
Stay gold, stay true. You're gonna make it, Wiz.

Why not follow your line of thinking to its conclusion and reject such labels as "us" and "them", "wizards" and "normans"?


I am ME!


Go back and never return.


I'm glad there's still places like this on the internet away from all the shitty judgement most people sport (yes I used those words in that fashion, I don't need to tell you the reason so don't ask me why)

I am a former atheist. I decided to convert to the protestant faith and abandon all nihilism and pessimism in favor of salvation in the hands of Christ. now I pray daily and read the bible my goal is to achieve salvation through Jesus christ It might have started as a response to a general sense of nihilism, but talking to a priest didn't help move me anywhere in that regard. It might have started as a cry in a moment of despair, but when I did that, there was no response. It might have started as an acceptance of philosophical arguments, but while I find some of them viable, I don't think they're compelling enough to move me from one category to another. It might have started as an outpouring of welcoming from religious people, but I'd always received that welcoming.

Maybe I decided that religion (in its broadest sense) is intrinsic to humanity, and in order to have a human existence that made any sense, I'd have to give this religion thing another shake. Maybe I decided that, even if we are cosmic orphans, it is the role of the orphan to long and cry out. Maybe somewhere in the depths of my humanity, somewhere immeasurable and small but more there than anything else, my cries received a response and I have never been as happy and content as I am right now in my life faith is comfy
Anybody here has any similar experience with faith and religion?

>If you are powerful you can do anything.

It makes sense, but only on the surface. If you study history you'll realize that to be powerful you have to become part of a 'chain of wills' because nobody is powerful alone or become powerful by doing anything you want. In fact, you have to play a very strict game of power, doing all sorts of shit you don't want in order to climb the chain of wills, appeasing here, forcing there, scheming endlessly. And then when you're at the top, you still don't get to do what you want, you do what you have to do because even at the top you're not free from the chain of the collective wills of all the people you rule. It's almost like you don't get to decide what to do, but how it's going to be done.

I hope I'm not too vague here (probably am), but read about the lives of Roman emperors and kings, it becomes very clear how pernicious power is and how it's nothing at all to do with doing anything you want.


If you have power you can do anything so maybe those roman emperors weren't actually all that powerful at the end of the day? It doesn't matter if you are in a high position or not if you are too afraid to live out your desires and to shape the world into what you'd like it to be. To be really powerful you have to be brave and cruel, ready to fight anyone who opposes you.

That is exactly why I said our leaders need to be strong warriors and people who claimed power through violence, confrontation or war. If you hand people the staff of rulership then they will be weak emperors. The Roman Empire suffered from the same disease we suffer from nowadays: civilization.

If someone can't do what he wants then he is obviously not free. What I dream about is a society where you don't suck up to people in any form or way but take what you want by force.

Collectivism is always the safe solution that leads to corruption while individualism is harder but has better rewards in the end.
Meh, /pol/ and the liberal left seem pretty much the same to me, both argue on the grounds of slave cattle morality just in different ways. Both care about "justice" and other spooks like that a great deal. Both dream about some utopistic society where people will help each other and obey the CORRECT laws and morals, heh, which is ofc their laws and morals.


Caligula and Commodus disagree


It's too narrow and influenced by ancient middle eastern desert cults. Life is more universal than any single ideology or religion.


Yet everyone is locked into his own subjective experience of life and subjective view of things. Life is just what life is like for you at the end of the day.

what is your guys taste in music?

I used to mainly listen to rock like linkin park in highschool then began getting into orchestra music and movie scores. Then when I got into anime I started listening to the OP/ED even though I don’t understand a single word.

After I started listening to hip-hop because one song was stuck in my head. I hated the genre at first because the music had no lyrical substance then I compared it to anime music and how I never understood a single
line so I decided to put my ego to the side and I have been listening to it the most now.

I mostly listen to the rappers like lil uzi vert, kanye, kid cudi, and juice wrld . It feels weird when I see fans discuss the music on forums online and it’s mostly teenagers or young adults.


i dont listen to music much anymore, I found it's mostly a waste of time

…and the japanese are out to cure them.

>The blind cave fish Mexican tetra exhibits similar characteristics to humans with schizophrenia. The species as a whole is solitary due to a lack of natural predators. They have no need to join protective schools and are instead able to independently navigate underwater using variations in water pressure and vibrations.

>Despite their safety in the dark recesses, they remain anxious and restless. The fish repeat behaviors incessantly without sleeping.
>The fish show the closest behaviors of any animal researched so far to human schizophrenia. In fact, the fish seem to have about 90 percent of the genes with known risk factors for psychiatric disease.
>Yoshizawa has attempted to quell the natural erratic behaviors of the cave fish with fluoxetine, commonly branded as Prozac, and clozapine.

According to wikipedia, they are eyeless and have taste buds all over their head.

They are closely related to surface, social, normie fish. It's quite interesting. Perhaps it's really hard to lose sociability once it's been evolved, and the best natural selection for asociality can do is fucking your shit up.

How can fish have the same problem as humans? our brains are completely different


if you share enough genes with animals, you can use them to research potential treatment on humans. soudns like the fish is likely to be considered the model orgnanism for schizophrenia research because of this


i guess it shows the evo origins of schizo, in the chemicals in the brain. like JP and his hierarchy alpha lobsters

Completely honest post, does spirituality (a less cheap version than the one in the picture) have any single meaningful thing to contribute to a man's life other than a false sense of well-being for some hours? Why do people irl get into shit they don't understand and defend it to their core?

What is there to gain?
9 posts omitted. Click reply to view.


I worship the Arrow of Time, Fifth Force, primordial Chaos, Entropy.
It's omnipresent and omnipotent, blind, uncaring, the true God of humanity. I know it's futile but it still gives me comfort.


In what sense worshipping entropy gives you comfort? That's curious.


Not him, because it's likely the only known way we can actually see nature "acting" as a higher force. I don't see Jesus of Nazareth or Odin doing shit. Formless gods tend to be more believable


The desire to worship something always leads one down the wrong path. Insteading of worshipping forces or gods or entities that don't care about you it would be better to learn to use other beings for your own gains, no? I mean supernatural beings. Like angels, demons, spirits, that sort of stuff.

Well, according to their faith, everything moves thanks to God. Abrahamic religions suppose that God is an active participant in our lives. So everything good is thanks to him, everything bad is because of original sin/humanity/demons etc.
Paganism is always about Nature Worship and so Odin was what, the god of death and wisdom if I remember right? So he is death and since death exists he is doing shit.

>Formless gods tend to be more believable

You think? I don't know, I think humans are more likely to follow a god that is similar to them in some way or another. This is exactly why God The Father or the gnostic God is hard to grasp for people, because they are unlike us so much. While Zeus for example could be understood much better because he was much more human.


I worship it out of fear and respect. I recognize it as the supreme entity.

>haunt you
I know someone with a charge for shoplifting alcohol while underage that still got a security clearance. It doesn’t seem to matter at all.


lol that could work but I doubt you could fool security for long, and you would be recorded by cctv anyway

it made me think of these tricks to get random people to act a certain way, like carrying a seemingly heavy cardboard box as someone is walking into or exiting a private building, to get them to be less suspicious and hold the door for you out of politeness… it would be useful to have a bunch of tips like that to make life around normals easier


I live in California, cops don’t pursue for thefts less than $950, also I would not even take out a cart, I would only take two bags full of stuff with no car.


Warlock is my main in WotLK


That's nonsense, you can still be arrested for petty theft, be charged with a misdeameanour and spend months in jail. Even if you steal a lollipop, that would still be an infraction and if you get caught you'll end up with a fine worth hundreds of dollars.


Long time ago there was a thread here with old youtube videos. Instead of saving them properly i saved the link to that thread due to lack of mental strength at the time, unfortunately.

Would you like to share some of old youtube videos to relieve the memories of the past long gone?

As someone on the A cluster of personality disorders, life is very unmanageable and diminishing
i remember before my illness i was a different person, i used to not care much, i was pretty alpha.

Currently in life i've been more of a victim to my surroundings, admittedly because of me, but also because i'm an easy target.
I've increasingly become envious of cluster B more specifically dark triad or these days it's updated. I exclude BPD and histrionics those aren't beneficial (my sister has bpd)

I've done drugs to alter myself, i watch gore, i don't respond much to shocking imagery because of shizoid tendencies i have, but i do have feelings. I'm kind to animals etc.
My problems in general are of a social nature, i feel fine by myself, but anything with other people is no fun at all, i don't like people.
I would call myself a nihilist and a misanthrope but also a coward, i understand anxiety, i wish i would wake up as a genuine psychopath.

It sounds edgy and you can suggest i should top myself, but hear me out, in our society psychopathy is very beneficial, it's almost a cure all.

psychopaths have reduced connections between the ventromedial prefrontal cortex (vmPFC). The part of the brain responsible for sentiments such as empathy and guilt, and the amygdala, which mediates fear and anxiety.
the neuroscientist James Fallon, he himself is a psychopath and he discovered this by reviewing scans of criminals brains. Abuse and bad upbringing is the difference between a pro-social and antisocial one. But also genetics. NOT solely upbringing.

I was always interested in psychology, if i was smarter i would've have studied it with criminology, it's just interesting. I'm not glorifying murderers, in a sense i think people should pay for their crimes.
All of this is meaningless anyway, but i just came to the conclusion in order to break the cycle of a abuse, the abused becomes the abuser, psychopathy CAN be the answer in certain situations.

Lobotomy, brain damage, drugs, callousness and exposure to violence, killing animals, it can all amount to advancing the spectrum of psychopathy. I guess i'm just a weak individual looking for a way out.

well, yeah


this gives you an idea as to why someone bound to negative emotion would want to be a psychopath


You'll find people online throwing labels of narcissist personality disorder and sociopathy left and right. If someone doesn't like you, you're a "gaslighting" narcissist.


usually when you don't like someone you don't go into a psychotic bend on trying to get at that person and ruin their lives/reputation
Insults and not liking someone is normal even talking behind their backs if you're that way, but taking calculated steps and using manipulation tactics isn't normal behaviour.
You can't seriously label someone online as a psychopath or a narc because it's just words on a screen, you don't really know me nor do i know you.


also FIY narcs don't gaslight, they believe their lies unlike sociopaths and psychopaths they DO use gaslighting tactics

How the fuck do I curb my internet addiction? Im online every hour I'm awake. I browse my phone until I fall asleep, I wake up and browse, I watch porn on my phone, I use my phone to listen to music while I shower.
Its everyday every single day. I can't take it anymore. They purposedly make everything addictive so you get trapped in the shithole that is the internet and they get fat checks and bonuses because ad revenue went up.
Please help me, I get insanely bored offline. I tried greyscale and uninstalling apps but I always go back
