You're asking if "ADHD meds", aka legal speed or speed substitutes, will make you better at repetitive, monotonous, rote learning related tasks, as in college work?

Yeah, taking ampetamines will help with that, dude. Down side is you run the risk of becoming a cadaverous, neurotic wreck of a person who's on the road to psychosis. Doesn't happen to everyone, though…

yes they help but only if you take the prescribed dose consistently. They can be very addictive, because its tempting to take the higher dose then what you're prescribed to get a high or extra focus, or more motivation. Taking the extra dose will never work except to get you high and addicted, tempting you to keep trying to see if you can get more productivity out of it. If anything, you'll just become dependent on the extra dose to do things you could already do before anyway.
>I should go to the gym
>I think I'll take an extra dose now to get me there
maybe it makes getting yourself to the gym easier, but you were getting yourself to the gym before anyway, only now you're dependant on the extra dose to get you there.

Also, getting extra focus doesn't mean you'll be focusing on what you're supposed to be focusing on. You still have to get yourself to focus on what you should be. If you expect to be able to depend on them to get shit done you'll just end up focusing on something else, because all you can depend on them for is the extra focus itself

>Every religion has its roots in paganism, what is the point? Yes, gnosticism was influenced by paganism too. Judaism was originally a polytheistic pagan religion too.
My post was referencing his image, not detracting paganism. Plotinos and neoplatonism as a whole is the entire basis Christianity. Christianity is what amounts to a codified monotheistic Greek/Roman philosophy.
>Another influence may have been the Neoplatonist Plotinus' (204–70 CE) triad of the One, Intellect, and Soul, in which the latter two mysteriously emanate from the One, and “are the One and not the One; they are the one because they are from it; they are not the One, because it endowed them with what they have while remaining by itself” (Plotinus Enneads, 85). Plotinus even describes them as three hypostases, and describes their sameness using homoousios (Freeman 2003, 189). Augustine tells us that he and other Christian intellectuals of his day believed that the Neoplatonists had some awareness of the persons of the Trinity (Confessions VIII.3; City X.23).
This isn't the best example because I don't want to trudge through my books, but to cut it short for you when Christianity began to spread through the Roman Empire it wasn't as most people here believe where an offshoot of Judaism enveloped pagan thought, it is closer to pagan and gnostic philosophy taking the idea of Christ(not Judeo-Christianity). Plato, Neoplatonists, and Plotinos himself were already converging on the idea of "The One", and Christ and the idea of the Benevolent Creator was EXTREMELY convenient.
In other words, Christianity is the synthesis of gnosticism, paganism, and the idea of Christ(and the Monotheos).
This is also the reason that the Old Testament(which is Judaism minus the post-Christ writings) has so little influence on Christianity now. Even Christian philosophy is just another identity of the Greek Logos.

You are right, but the best is when people here use "pagan" as an insult, like that poster before. Like paganism is more closely related to normalfaggotry than christianity or other religions. If anything, pagan religions in general are more individualistic than other religions. You can pick who you identify with from the lore and myths, unlike in christianity where you must always identify with Jesus or the moral man.

>>257941
Thanks for the info, interesting.
>anyone that seriously practices paganism today is cringe
Depends on what kind of paganism we are talking about. Independent, individual paganism is great in my opinion - make up your own idols or your own religious/philosophical system. That sounds good to me. Paganism, esoteric and occult stuff are way more suited to the loner or wizardly man than organized religions are.

>My post was referencing his image, not detracting paganism. Plotinos and neoplatonism as a whole is the entire basis Christianity. Christianity is what amounts to a codified monotheistic Greek/Roman philosophy.
Christians rely more on Aristotles than Plato and the Neoplatonists, they reject the theory of an universal intellect (Nous) where all the ideas are stored permanently and discard the idea of a World Soul and the pre-existence of souls. If anything, they just replace the neoplatonic One-Intellect-World Soul triad with Father/Son/Holy Ghost trinity and their biblical hogwash.

I tend to have little self-control when I'm alone in my room, and even though I can manage to keep my cool in front of normies and my family, I get easily swayed by my emotions when faced with contrasting opinions or when the work I'm intent on consuming, regardless of whether it's a book or a movie does not live up to my expectations.

Sure, that's what a good piece of art is supposed to do if it resonates with you deeply. But I don't really get bummed out or irritated if it "does not live up to my expectations". If a movie or book or album is boring or painful to consume, I will just move on to something else. Life is too short to consume garbage, so I don't trust "reviewers" and marketing bots on social media about their opinion on something or the worst of them all, pseudo-intellectuals that need to signal their status by claiming they're the ones that "truly understood" what X author/director was trying to express and anyone that dislikes or thinks little of their work is just "pleb filtered".

Agree with the latter, but the music isn't bad.

>It's a shame that DS is so annoying to emulate unless you can rotate your monitor somehow so I can't play 4 and 6.

I know right? Hate that dual screen gimmick. I played DQ4 on DS but I've heard the western localization is a butchered port: they removed all of the party chatting if I remember correctly, and the difficulty is dumbed down compared to the original, which is something they've also done to the other DS and 3DS DQ remakes, or so I've read.

Well, let me rephrase it: it wasn't too memorable in the first two coming off from Ys and Xanadu next. I'm looking forward to the future games, if that's the case then for sure.

Oh that's really a shame then with DQ. I'd love to play the ps1 version, because the nes games are pretty ghetto game designs. There are mobile ports that seem to have the party chat, but mobile controls. It's just so god damn enjoyable to play the game on ps2 because of the orchestral music, and I would imagine solid on ps1.

Xanadu Next has been on my backlog for a very long time. Did you play it with a controller or mouse + keyboard? Another falcom game I'd love to play is Brandish: The Dark Revenant, do you know about it? It's a PSP exclusive with no native PC version though, sadly.

>It's just so god damn enjoyable to play the game on ps2 because of the orchestral music

Are you talking about V? I don't think there's anything wrong with the PS2 remake compared to the original… I don't remember there being orchestral music though?

DQ5 for ps2, yes. I installed a widescreen patch and now can spend dozens of minutes in one town/overworld just enjoying the ost.
>Will probably grab XIs and Builders 2 if Squenix ever drops their damn prices…
Yeah the price for builders 2 on pc is beyond insanity, it goes as low as 11$ on ps4, but I don't have the system. At least the game has so much to do.
Monster series I haven't tried out yet, but it's something I'm looking forward to a lot, the concept of recruiting DQ monsters is great. Hoping that the dai anime is good.
>Xanadu Next
Oh, this one is great. I played it with mouse + keyboard, spacebar opens the menu, tab opens the map. I played it the entire day, it's grinding is really addictive and sweet. This one is nice because there are long stretches of time before npc dialog refreshes so you can indulge in grinding. Might wanna get something to listen to like a podcast for the longer dungeons though. I recommend getting a rom of faxanadu and playing that for like an hour to see what the core design was in the original, no need to clear. It would've been great if the emulation of pc-engine wasn't so complicated. The legend of xanadu looks really incredible. The fan-translation is taking so long. Tried to get Revival Xanadu to work on dosbox for a while, but it's just too hard. I could play these all day.
>Brandish: The Dark Revenant
Oh, that looks really fun, but I wanna try out the previous brandish first.

what's the endgame of internet and imageboards?
i'm 99% sure every "anonymous" imageboard are spying programs if not fed honeypots, imagine the following; you're going to do something important as (let's say) doing career in politics and magically every posts you've made "anonymously" and all of your internet activity will "leak" by some uknown source destroying you definitively. i think that's one of the many things that will happen in the future. computers are the biggest and most practical spying systems to ever exist and i would be a fool to think the gov won't use it for their profit.
they gather all the info on you so you become their hostages. i am too naive to think that? i'm a tech noob so is it maybe my ignorance in the matter that make me paranoid? can someone with more knowledge enlight me on computer spying, and their endgame? or even better, has someone who worked for microsoft or any other big compagny reveal some nasty shit?
is the ultimate move to not use the internet anymore? after all it's becoming the ultimate weapon against free speech.
why should i trust i machine i do not understand made by people more intelligent than me?

>i truly think free speech on the internet is already doomed and that we're living the last years of a semblance of it.
Particular revolutions are promoted, other revolutions are suppressed. The Arab Spring was partly organized through Twitter, which at the time supported free speech. The Arab Spring revolutions that started in Tunisia aligned with American interests, therefore in nations with strong governments like Libya, Syria, and Iraq, the US used military power in the service of regime change. There was little organic about those "revolutions", and pretensions about free speech and democracy were just a strategy to maintain public support.

Consider an organic revolutionary movement, like the Yellow Vests in France. Their movement has been crushed by the same internet companies that facilitated the Arab Spring, because the Yellow Vests don't align with the interests of state and financial power. Just yesterday Macron used the Nice terrorist attack to petition the EU Commission to access encrypted messaging services like Telegram, because that's where organic movements like the Yellow Vests are now compelled to organize after being deplatformed from Twitter and Facebook.

More broadly, Western governments turn on and off Islamic terrorism against their own people. ISIL fighters are free to come and go from Europe, since ISIL destabilizes Syria and Iraq who are enemies of Israel. Iraq and Syria were also a funnel for arms to Hezbollah from Iran in their revolutionary struggle against Zionism. Formerly, Ba'athist nations like Iraq, Syria, and Libya were threatening to become a powerful pan-Arab socialist bloc across the Middle East and North Africa, united in opposition to Zionism and American imperialism, so they were destroyed by "revolutions" backed up with American air power.

On second thought, I might have given too little credit to the importance of DRM because circumvention tools had been the product of many hard-fought legal victories, such as phone jailbreaking court cases. Such victories are fleeting. The EFF used to describe Apple as, not a good company, but at least as a company that had demonstrated a higher degree of concern for user privacy than Microsoft or Alphabet Inc. That's gone now.
https://sneak.berlin/20201112/your-computer-isnt-yours/

All the tools that have increased the liberty of the computer end-user are subject to youtube-dl style criminalization. Decompilers and resource managers and any media editor or player that wasn't coded specifically for interaction with DRM locks - and as the EFF spokespeople say about youtube-dl, it's not even that criminal use is illegal, it is working on the creation or distribution of toolsets which can theoretically be used to bypass DRM itself which is subject to lawfare.
