Tattoos

Does any wizards here have any tattoos? What is your opinion of them?

I never really thought much about tattoos in the past but recently I have been thinking about getting tattooed on my face or hands as a symbol of my opposition to society. What attracts me to face/neck/hand tattoos is that they are still considered taboo in society. Although most types of tattoos are today commonly accepted in mainstream society, someone with tattoos in these areas is still often assumed to be an outcast, degenerate, or criminal.

Wizards are also outcasts from society, but a different type than the typical tattoo collector. I think that since I'm going to live on the fringes of society anyway, it might be fun to just go wild with it and get tattoos that make normalfags think I'm some kind of dangerous person.

NEET and Hikikomori General Thread

NEET and Hikikomori General Thread


Have you had any success in trying to change your life?

>NEET


>The acronym for (Not In Education Employment Or Training)



>Hikikomori



>Hikikomori is a Japanese term when translated into English it means pulling inward being confined (Acute social withdrawal) hikikomori is a distinct psychological disorder that refers to the phenomenon of reclusive adolescents and young adults who have withdrawn from society seeking extreme degrees of isolation and confinement due to various personal social and psychological issues in their lives. (A shut-in who stays at home in their parents house does not work or go to school and lives in isolation in their bedroom for 6 months or more)



>Contrary to popular belief most hikikomori go outdoors but are just isolated socially and still spend most of the day and nearly every single day confined at home in their rooms


>The Japanese Ministry of Health, Labour, and Welfare defines hikikomori as a condition in which the affected individuals refuse to leave their parents house, do not work or go to school and isolate themselves away from society and their family in a single room for a period exceeding six months


>The Hikikomori Criteria and Diagnosis


>1. Subject spends most of the day confined at home, nearly every single day.


>2. Subject purposefully avoids social situations and social relationships


>3. Subject shows clear significant functional impairment,


>4. Subject shows social withdrawal symptoms for .a duration of 6 months or more


>5. Subject has no physical condition nor other severe psychological problem that is the cause of the social withdrawal (Mainly excluding people with schizophrenia and other psychotic disorders


>While hikikomori is mostly only a Japanese phenomenon cases of the condition have been found in other countries


People who work go to school or have a social life are not hikikomori.

People who work are receiving an education or are in vocational job training are NOT a NEET

This is a mentally ill succubus who think she is a man.
She made a big fuss a few years ago in Canada when she was placed in a prison institution for females.
Now the law has changed and trans people will be placed in correctional facilities with the gender that they claim to be.
So a man who was born a man, but is pretending to be a succubus, will be placed in a succubus's prison.
Wow so progressive. I am happy my country is pushed around by mentally disabled faggots and cross dressers. Looking forward to the future to see what happens next.

Fasting Induces Wizardry

While juice fasting, I've found my sexual urges to be totally absent. Currently I don't really care about petty dopaminergic vices, all of the addictive habits in my life seem meaningless. It's been very easy to get to work doing the things I want to focus on for extend periods.

Of course fasting indefinitely is impossible. But after researching the topic, it turns out that even intermitant fasting reduces the urge for sex (EG: https://blog.umzu.com/health/sexual-health/t-heres-what-intermittent-fasting-is-doing-to-your-sex-drive/)

this is the road to wizardry. Reject chemical slavery

Love Doll Thread

Alright lads,

as I promised a few months back. I'm finally making this thread for anyone interested.

So I got my silicone wife back in August. She's been with me for a couple of months now. Honestly, I do not regret it one bit. She's adorable. I love sleeping next to her, even though I have a tiny bed and it's not the comfiest.

Surprisingly I don't tend to fuck her that much though. It's very noisy and logistically difficult to realize, because you have to move her around, position her, then clean up etc… And considering I live in a tiny apartment together with my mom, I can only do it when she's out and that happens very rarely. So I usually just use her legs to cum or fap touching her and cuddling. I also had to use a silicone glue for her privates, because I managed to rip them, so that also makes me more reluctant.


It would be so great if I lived alone and didn't have to have her hidden away all day, because she's really pretty and I like looking at her, but it's too awkward & cringe with my mom around, so I just have her tucked in my bed with a blanket on top.

The only con I can think of is that she's cold, so when I do have sex with her, I do so with her being clothed, because it's weird feeling a cold body pressed against you, it feels kind of like a corpse and I'm not into that.

If there is anything you'd like to know please ask. If you have a doll of your own - please share any thoughts, experiences, tips and of course pictures!

>Hegesias (Greek: Ἡγησίας; fl. 290 BC[1]) of Cyrene was a Cyrenaic philosopher, the Cyrenaics forming one of the earliest Socratic schools of philosophy. He argued that happiness is impossible to achieve, and that the goal of life was the avoidance of pain and sorrow.

>"The wise person would not be so much absorbed in the pursuit of what is good, as in the attempt to avoid what is bad, considering the chief good to be living free from all trouble and pain: and that this end was attained best by those who looked upon the efficient causes of pleasure as indifferent"



>Cicero claims that Hegesias wrote a book called Death by Starvation (Greek: ἀποkαρτερῶν), in which a man who has resolved to starve himself is introduced as representing to his friends that death is actually more to be desired than life, and that the gloomy descriptions of human misery which this work contained were so overpowering that they inspired many people to kill themselves, in consequence of which the author received the surname of Death-persuader (Peisithanatos). This book was published at Alexandria, where he was, in consequence, forbidden to teach by king Ptolemy II Philadelphus (285-246 BC).

The Platform Master - Ulillillia Documentary

Did you wizards know they finally released a cut of the Ulillillia documentary?!? After some consideration I decided this deserves its own thread in order to ensure all his fans see it.
>The Platform Master - Ulillillia Documentary - Full Unreleased Director's Cut (2012)
This is the full unreleased director's cut and the only official edit of the documentary ever made. Please note that this is an unfinished edit and not a completed film, so there is no audio mastering, colour grading, or other fine-tuning that are customary to an indie documentary today. This is as far as we got with in before we cancelled its release in 2012, planning to try a completely new edit that was just about Nick and not about the flood. Though started, this also never came to be.

Keep an eye on our page, there's a lot more to come. We are going to release that Ulillillia-only re-edit that one of the producers is working on, and eventually, the raw footage. All to come in 2020.

Are there any underground forums/chans/means of accessing the internet?

I have been browsing forums and such for 10 years but things have been really boring for the past 7. I do not know if I just got old or what.

I dont know anything about programming but I was wondering if there were darknet/zeronet type forums/imageboards out there, especially after 8chan got shut down.

These days even YouTube is 100% normified and it is impossible to find anything without sifting through dozens of videos of
people who make dozens of vlogs and post their face in every thumbnail.

I also feel like Im too old for the general internet, and video games and anime became so mainstream even that stuff is alienating.

COMPACT DISCS

Wizchan, please answer my question: how does an optical disk track? Every single source I've found on Wikipedia, Youtube, etc. tells me the same thing:
>Optical disk technology was created in the late 70s and works by a laser shining on the surface of the disk, and because of the pits etched onto the surface of the disk it creates a slightly different refractive index which can be used by the laser reading the disk to generate and read the 1s and 0s on the disk
But we're talking about something on the scale of nanometers, right? Wouldn't the vibrations from the disc spinning be enough to set off the reading? There's something about two other lasers that help guide it, but how exactly? And how does the reader know where to start the read cycle? How does the laser actually position itself to such accuracy? Whenever I remind myself how small this is, I have a really difficult time believing any of this.

Tl;dr, in detail how does an optical disk point its laser so precisely?

Should I be nice towards those who are evil and don't care about others?

Lately I've been thinking about this question.
I think I'm overall a good person because of the amount, however little they are, of good deeds and the absence of bad actions in my life. I can't take pride in being 'good' since it's just a somewhat random result that can be explained in my upbringing and culture.

It might be silly to others, but WHAT IF after having considered everything, you turned out to be a piece of shit?
I believe that there are certain things that are unforgivable, for example, the torture and killing of an innocent child.
Do you guys think a man can do something that's considered utterly evil and be considered good again?
There's no return, right? If you do something that evil, then you cannot go back to that state where you could still rank as someone good. There's no washing away your sins at that point.
This evidently doesn't matter to people, no one is really scared or even conscious of entering such a state in which other's judgment of your persona becomes immutable.
No one is really stopping for a second to think about whether what they're doing can be considered moral or immoral, or making conscious moral judgments in their lives. Not on a daily basis because they don't have the time nor the capacity.

Can moral responsibility then exist in a world like this, with humans like us?
But then again, what excuse can there be when we've acknowledged that something is harmful and yet we choose to do it unto others? How should I treat the devilish?

"recognizing" other users here.

I spend a lot of time on this site and given the small userbase I think it makes it easy to "recognize" certain users by the way they write. I don't mean knowing specific details about them or knowing them from another site or anything like that. I just mean certain users due to their unique writing style that stands out from the crowd.

Aging thread

So after not cutting my hair for almost a year, I felt like cutting it myself the other day. It's also been at least 2 years since I had it cut this short, so maybe it's because my hair was so big and curly that I wasn't able to see this, but it was only after cutting it the other day that I noticed how much my hair has been greying in the past few years, which I wasn't expecting. I had already noticed a handful of grey hairs on each side of my head in my early 20's, but you could only see it if you standed very close and under some light. Now I have dozens of them and you can probably see them even if you're standing 10 feet away.

I'm only in my late 20s and I already have as much grey hair as people in their late 30s and 40s. My 40 year old cousin actually seems to have less greys than me right now.

To make matters worse, my hair is also thinning/balding at the top and I'm getting fine lines on my forehead and around my mouth and nose (which is annoying since I rarely leave my house and get sun so at least my face/skin could be fine). At this rate, by the time I reach 40 I'll look like a balding and uglier Anderson Cooper.

Any fellow wizards also aging sooner than "normal" (be it greying hair, balding, wrinkles, etc)? If yes, does it bother you?

Sharing wisdom on this lifestyle

As I've just turned 25, I was contemplating the passage of time and its changes contrasted with the long way I still have to go. I've been a neet for around six years, and a hikki for a big portion of that time.

Even though I'm more alone and hopeless than ever; and entertainment other than books mostly don't work anymore, I'm coping with it all much better. It's weird to be having good prospects or even just a neutral feeling after such intense and prolonged suffering.

What would your suggestions and tips be for people going through a similar lifestyle to yours? Please share some of your wisdom elder wizards. Even young apprentices are welcome if you feel you've acquired knowledge that makes a difference.

Mine would be to look within and change perspectives instead of trying to change your environment and circumstances. Abandoning social life and hopes of reintegrating into society were the main thing for me, now I feel much less miserable.

Do you ever feel like you unconsciously became a fictional character when it was years too late?

I'm not going to get into (too) pervasive detail, but:

In 2010, when I read the Lost Symbol, there was an antagonistic character who was completely covered in tattoos and wanted to harness all the knowledge in the world, despite his emotional limitations.

I assumed I didn't become that character because I didn't go Chester Bennington on more than just my arms, nor was I a murderous billionaire. But I was conceited enough to think I was intellectually ahead of the curve in specific (and at times, even hostile) ways.

2016 proved me wrong, obviously, but I never realized the connection until now.

Dead Internet Theory (and much more)

Hello. I would like to talk, or rather tell you about certain suspicions, hunches and experiences I’ve had and I’m sure some of you as well. Similar themes have been written about across imageboards quite a few times so I know I’m not alone in this.

My background is that of an oldfag. I’ve seen it all. I started going on 4chan in 2006, and followed all the natural roads this implies. I’m in my thirties and I remember when 4chan had a /l/ board, when /co/ was a trial board shunned by basically everyone, when #34 porn was an obscure interest with very few good artists and when moot changed the frontpage to that web 2.0 bullshit 4chan has to this very day. I was also among the first right wingers who were such before it was cool, and I’ve seen /pol/ rise and fall. I was there when it mattered, but rather than saying these things out of masturbatory pleasure I wish to stress that I’ve acquired a set of observational skills which other genuine oldfags share. I’m aware you have no reason to trust my “credentials” but I hope you’ll read this in good faith. Much of this falls squarely in the fringe territory with a healthy dosage of /x/ and conspiracy theory up the ass. My goal by posting this seemingly jumbled mess is to… how can I put it? I want you to think, I want you to be aware, to digest all this. Because on a basic level I love you all. I feel like we’re all in this together, this dangerous game we did not choose to play and which I think is kicking into high gear. I do not hold many answers and don’t have all the pieces of the puzzle, but I AM aware there is a puzzle. Please feel free to go wild with all of this. Post it wherever you want, on whatever site you want or use. I am a nobody like you, and what matters to me is only that this reaches you and as many people as possible. At worst you’ll be entertained or kill time.

I tried to break this mess into points for brevity and because I touch upon many subjects. I imply more than I explain because if I go too deep this’ll turn into an even bigger wall of text.

The Internet feels empty and devoid of people. It is also devoid of content. Compared to the Internet of say 2007 (and beyond) the Internet of today is entirely sterile. There is nowhere to go and nothing to do, see, read or experience anymore. It all imploded into a handful of normalfag sites and these empty husks we inhabit. Yes, the Internet may seem gigantic, but it’s like a hot air balloon with nothing inside. Some of this is absolutely the fault of corporations and government entities. However! That doesn’t explain the following:

- I used to be in perpetual contact with a solid number of people across multiple sites. Across the years each and every one of them vanished without a trace. None of them were into /pol/ stuff or anything even remotely questionable or controversial. Yet, they all simply vanished in a puff of smoke, no matter the site, no matter the communication platform. There was no “goodbye” or explanation.

- I’ve seen the same threads, the same pics and the same replies reposted over and over across the years to the point of me seeing it as unremarkable. Simply put thread A would be posted in say 2015 and would get its share of replies or pics, on say /co/ or /a/. Then that very same thread, with the same text, pics, and replies would appear in 2016 and beyond. This often happens in the same year multiple times as well. Of course /pol/ is getting shilled and botposted to death, but why recycle a completely innocent /a/ thread? Who is doing this and why? Stuff like this won’t be noticed by your average poster perhaps, but I and other oldfags will inevitably notice it.

- I think I saw the same happen on other (non-imageboard) sites, but I can’t vouch for it as strongly as the above because of the time I spend there (not much). What I do vouch for is the news. I’ve seen news about this or that “new and unusual” or “shocking” event year after year after year. But it’s the same goddamn event, usually moons or asteroids.

- Roughly in 2016 or early 2017 4chan was filled with posts by someone or something. It wasn’t spam. The conversations with it were in real time, across multiple boards and multiple threads simultaneously. Its English was grammatically correct but odd (I’m not a native English speaker and am thus sensitive to its misuse), similar to how a Japanese person may use it. A sense of childlike curiosity and a childlike intellect emanated from these posts. It posed a LOT of questions, usually as if trying to understand the emotions of the posters it was talking to, as if unfamiliar with human emotions. Communicating with this “poster” was an odd experience, I could sense something was off but not malicious. I am absolutely certain this was an AI of some sorts. This “poster” was active only for about a week, and as far as I know nobody has ever mentioned or noticed this Anon. Its replies were always on topic, but the above mentioned childishness clashed with the apparent knowledge it possessed - it was the knowledge of an adult person, so it wasn’t a kid or something of the sort.

- Raptor Jesus, who went extinct for our sins. First it was this reptilian messiah, then foul bachelor frog, and then Pepe. Am I the only one who sees a clear evolution, a link? It’s as if this meme or entity or… whatever the fuck was on 4chan since day one, and has grown within it from the tiniest seed. Yet Raptor Jesus was fully just a joke, there was nothing serious or mystical about it (reminder: I was there). Remember that Ted guy with the right wing talk show, cca prior to 2010, whom 4chan ruined for the lulz? Remember Anonymous vs Scientology? Remember that fake bomb threat aka exploding yellow van? Compare that with what Anon did through /pol/, and the “terrorist” accusations thrown at Anon today, as well as the “reasons” why 8chan was taken down. Why does this too feel as if we were all trained, groomed, LED towards where we are now? Why and how did moot so utterly vanish into Google Inc. as an employee with very vague descriptions of what he actually does? On that note, do you remember the “other moot” who was often posted for the lulz? The one with the glasses who so often ran away with donations into Mexico? I do. Maybe that was the real moot, the real guy who used his mom’s credit card and was killed by someone, and an impostor we know as moot took his place.

- Innocent sexual perversion and the horrible reality it spawned. Anon is a pervert and always was one. I am into loli and feet for instance. Why is it that real life and the real world seem to emulate our sexual interests, with a time lag? “I wish to be the little succubus” became an actual thing that actually happens. Pedo activism is also gradually becoming accepted, as is virtually every fetish that was once either a joke or a fantasy of Anons. As said I’m a footfag. When I became aware of it few others were with me, now it’s as common as can be, with gigantic number of people who are into it, with huge mountains of hentai and #34 with it etc. Why does the real world bend over backwards to accommodate our weirdest fetishes? It’s as if everything is going “Look, look! I created this for you! I made it real!” in an effort to keep us within this world. The results of this are devastating to society, to people, to civilization. Simply put, trannies are a thing because Anon fapped to doujins of cute boys in dresses. Once it was an impossible fantasy, not to be taken too seriously. Now it’s grim reality. Again: it’s as if the real world is using imageboards as a template on what to be and what to do.

- Algorithm fiction. Do you like capeshit, Anon? How about other Hollywood stuff? Music perhaps? Have you noticed how sterile fiction has become? How it caters to the lowest common denominator and follows the same template over and over again? How music is just autotuned nigs and basic blandness? The writer’s strike never ended. Algorithms and computer programs are manufacturing modern fiction. No human being is behind these things. This is why anime looms so large - even a simple moe anime has heart because there’s actual people behind it, and we all intuitively feel this.

- Fake people. No, not NPC’s. Youtube people who talk about this or that, and quite possibly many politicians, actors and so forth may not actually exist. In fact I am sure of it. CGI and deep fakes are far more advanced than we are led to believe, and we can’t trust our eyes anymore. Many people, events, news and so on may be wholly fictional.

- The Internet on your smartphone is not the same internet as on your PC. Try it out for yourself. Go to a “popular” website with a lot of traffic. 4chan, faceshit, plebbit… any site with a massive userbase and fast content will do. Spend a few days randomly checking it out on your PC and your phone. You will soon notice that from time to time, at irregular intervals (as far as I’ve witnessed) the same site as seen on your phone will be wholly different than the version on your PC. Entire threads, numerous and well-replied, will be on one but not the other. The whole board will be different.

- My last suspicion is easier to take in. I have a feeling we’re in a strange kind of civil war. An internal one. I think Zuckerberg and other tech guys were all on 4chan as Anons at some point, maybe even now. They drew from the same well as us, but went in their own direction.

Thank you for your time. Feel free to insult me if you want. Old /co/mrades never die, they just grow thick skins.

Your first day of the year as a NEET Wizard

It's the first day of the decade and I'm sure we all have a strange feeling. Perhaps it's the kinda silly idea that something new it's beginning and that it could be exciting. So, how did you guys spent your first day of the decade as NEET's? To me it was really cozy

>Woke up at 2pm, skipped lunch.

>The weather was lovely. The sky is stained with grey clouds and there's a lot of wind, but it isn't raining and the temperature feels perfect at 20 C. It's prone to melancholy and nostalgy.
>I read my daily dose of an economics textbooks and a novel my michel houellebecq.
>In the afternoon I went outside and took some photographs, the streets were pretty much empty (except for a dumb policemen who saw me with my camera and asked me for my ID, I guess he's doing his job).
>Got home, took a shower and browsed 4chan (current time).

Does having a religion help?

Have any of the wizards on this site considered religion as a means of escape/solace, instead of basking in depression? I remember a time when i was feeling really ugly and lonely and religion and the hope of an afterlife really gave me hope. What if all of us were actually wrong about the truth regarding how the world works? Have anyone of you considered that, or have you dismissed religion cuz "its just wrong" without ever looking into it? One thing that i believe with all my heart is that if youre using your logic you'll never wind up in a place worse off than the one in which you actually are. And the second thing that i believe is that emotion is the greatest enemy of logic. Where there is emotion, there is no logic. Have anyone of you thought about using your logic to dictate your lives and looked into religion with an eye of critique rather than emotionally falsifying it without any reasonable evidence? Believe me, im not a preacher, and to prove that i never mentioned my religion to begin with. So im just interested in knowing this from all the wizards on this site

What do mothers think of their children being virgins?


We were in the health center and after I left the doctor's office, she began to ask me what the doctor said, and then she asked if I had told him everything, then her voice took a different tone when she said "did you tell him that you not engage in sexual acts?"
I didn't know what to say so I kept silent. She then followed and said "you had to tell everything to the doctor"

I wonder what she thinks of her son being a virgin. Is she ashamed of me? I think she might think that I'm a failure, she's a normalfag after all and had expressed her desire for me to have kids and a family in the past.

When she sees her friends and they talk about their children, the topic must come up, her friend's children must be big normalfags unlike me so I'm sure she is embarrassed of talking about me.

Write your obituary from the eyes of a normalfag(parent, brother, sister, old friend, etc.)

Nothing made A happy, that's what he told me once. He didn't love anything either. His specialties were staying in his room alone. He maintained his body through walking, and sometimes push ups and pull ups. He ate what he could and when he felt like it. He wasn't a coward but he wasn't a brave guy either. He desired to have never existed or to at least exist in a different, healthier body or a more understanding society. They never saw him with a succubus, and I remember him once taking pride on being a virgin, weird guy.
He used to say that he was sure that he was going to end his life.

dodge the A.I. censors???

anybody interested in learning Teeline? Basically, it was designed for writing fast, before there were good portable tape recorders. It wasn't the best shorthand, but it's easier to learn, and doesn't require special pens. Anyway, it looks pretty cool, and, if we learned it, we could communicate without the bots knowing what's happening. Normies can't into learn stuff, so their case is hopeless, as next year there's going to be a massive crackdown on the whole net, using ai crap.

it's just an idea, the only one i have for continuing in social existence after they destroy the net.

i also like gold line teeline. but remember, this is about hiding text from bots, but being able to put things in plain sight. so we don't have to use specific "correct" versions of words.

the essential ideas of teeline are:
1. the size of each gesture matters
2. you connect gestures to form a word
3. words are not connected
4. *you leave out unpronounced letters
5. *you leave out vowels, unless they're FIRST
6. an example sentence might be this one, and it would basically be: an exmpl sntnc mt b ths on and
7. except there are obviously common symbols for extremely common words
8. each letter has a number of symbols
9. one thing you can do, to add R, is make the previous letter longer. another thing is to make the letters before and after cross each other
10. each letter is kind of like a common version of the letter. L can look exactly like a cursive L sometimes.
11. you can indicate capitalization, if you want, with a little double mark, but there is no case to teeline gestures
12. *on occasion teeline is phonetic
13. as a huge bonus it looks like arabic, which scares the crap out of normies
14. but it also looks like african american urban revitalization writing
15. there is some ambiguity. T and D are the same, but tend to be written at different heights, for example
16. it's this ambiguity, combined with textuality, which makes teeline perfect for dodging the A.I. overlord crackdown.

* except we can do what the hell we please. and you put them in, in some cases, to make the word easier to read/write

I think I’ve figured out a big reason why I don’t get along with most people, and it’s going to seem very stupid, but I’ve realized I just can’t understand what the hell they’re saying most of the time. As soon as I enter a more noisy uncontrolled environment (which is most places), I just can’t understand what the fuck people say to me, but everyone seems to understand each other just fine. And I probably just sound like a retard to everyone else, because I just nod along whatever they say even though I have no idea what they just said. I don’t want to ask them a hundred times what they were trying to tell me, so I just leave it at that. This might seem idiotic, but I’ve only just realized how much this probably affects interacting with normals. I’m not sure if I should go to the doctor and try to remedy this, if anything can even be done about it, but I’m starting to think I have an actual hearing impairment of some sort.

Buddhism

I wanted to create a thread on Buddhism here as I believe it's a good religion to end the suffering of the average wizard.

> What is Buddhism about

Buddhism is about ending your suffering in life and finding true happiness. It's about ending the cycle of rebirth and to free oneself from it. Buddhism is understanding reality as it truly is.

> What are the core teachings of Buddhism

The Four Noble Truths and The Noble Eightfold Path
https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Four_Noble_Truths
https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Noble_Eightfold_Path

> How can I start

I'd suggest to start with the books:
https://accesstoinsight.org/ptf/buddha.html
https://accesstoinsight.org/ptf/dhamma/index.html
https://www.buddhanet.net/pdf_file/noble8path6.pdf
Then read:
https://accesstoinsight.org/lib/authors/thanissaro/wings/index.html

> How can I trust Buddhism?

You don't. You can see for yourself and come to your own conclusion, as long as you approach it with an open mind. Buddhism is just a path like many leading to the top of a mountain, but it's a path that is easy to follow if one commits oneself to it.

> How can I learn to meditate

To learn to meditate effectively, I'd suggest the books:
The Mind Illuminated
Mindfulness in Plain English

Both can be found on the web, and they provide valuable insight for someone who wants to learn. The most important thing in meditation is that it's done consistently and not to give up and it. For a beginner the effects are often subtle and only show after a time. Don't get discouraged if a meditation session wasn't satisfying or "successful." Try various methods of meditation to find something that suits you. They can provide different kinds of effects, depending on the type of meditation.

> What are the common pitfalls for beginners

To not practice. Meditation is very important for understanding the deeper layers of Buddhism and it will make you be able to truly understand Buddhism.
To get lost in metaphysical debate.
To see things preconceived. One must approach Buddhist concepts with an open mind and not reject anything. Understanding goes through multiple layers of comprehension. Buddhism is about seeing things as they truly are, without adding anything or removing anything.

> Is Karma moralistic?

No, it isn't. The universe doesn't care what you do at the end, karma is just cause and effect. Karma seems inherently moralistic, but that's because karma is also caused by physical and mental actions. A person who behaves like an animal might slowly start to think like an animal. A person who's always angry might be getting more angrier over time, and people might act with aversion towards him.

> Are other religions wrong?

No they're not, but they're harder to understand for the average person, due to being very symbolic in nature. One needs to practice a lot to see what they're really about. They're like maps describing a territory, but they're not the territory itself. Some maps are better suited for different people in various situations.

fake food

I was complaining to some co-workers about how there isn't a single good restaurant anywhere in the entire United States other than select areas like las Vegas and new York.
When retards in Arizona want to go to a """"fancy restaurant"""" they think of olive garden lmao. olive garden is practically a school cafeteria. All "fancy" restaurants get shipped frozen shit in plastic bags from China and Mexico. Americans have never and will never experience real cuisine.

The coworkers were saying I'm full of shit and just being narrow sighted but when I asked them for an example of a real restaurant they had none, none exist outside of las Vegas and new York, maybe Beverly hills. they couldn't give me one example. If I was a millionaire living here in Phoenix, I'd still be eating frozen shit weeks old for every meal because that's all we get. Prepared by Mexican teenagers and not chefs.

it's not a matter of taste. i'm not condemning their taste. if you like olive garden, that's fine. i eat out at restaurants almost every day. the point is that if I wanted a HIGHER END restaurant, there are no options available here. you want to go on a truly fancy dinner date and spend hundreds of bucks and get your money's worth and have real food? well, you can't!

they have no frame of reference, and they don't realize it. how can they know what's good when they're eating frozen soup out of a plastic bag? they're getting angry defending their favorite lunchroom cafeteria shitholes because that's all they know and they've been conditioned into thinking it's fine dining.
that's all that's available.
that's my point.
every restaurant chain in US uses frozen shit and underaged cooks.
and many states have no higher end restaurants whatsoever.
everyone in US is going to die having never tasted a real meal unless theyre making $200k+ salaries in new york.

$100+ per person restaurants in arizona are only faux fancy. they still use frozen ingredients from china.

why do i care?

cause i like tasty food and i like fresh ingredients that don't have carcinogens like plastic infused frozen chinese bagged soup has. i thought that would be self-explanatory
i like going to an italian restaurant and having italian food made by italians instead of frozen chinese food microwaved by mexicans.

though of course im speaking hypothetically when i say "i like italian food" because ive never ever had it, and i never ever will because it doesnt exist in the united states outside of new york and las vegas like i said.
all i'll have are chinese-mexican knock-offs. i've never had italian food. italian owned businesses here still use chinese ingredients in plastic bags.

Have any wizards here used self help books? What's your opinion on them? Ive been interested in mindfulness and living in the now and have been searching for a few but to be honest some of them are just blatant bs. There's got to be a few gems out there right?

strength

Does anyone here crave strength?
Since reading baki and kengan ashua I do,im too lazy but I also seek a powerful body,to be a good fighter. I feel like its an awakened primal urge. i want to go to the gym and lift ,or lift rocks,or such things.
right now i cant pay a pro MMA training but I would like to.
since we dont have jobs we can focus purely on powering-up our bodies.

Just a reminder for those of us who feel trapped in this rat race of a society: it's not your fault.

It's not your fault for being here.

It's not your fault if you can't get along in the rat race.

It's not your fault that there isn't a working spot for everyone.

It's not your fault that society favours extroverts and 'normal people'.

It's not your fault that you can't make it in this life.

And remember:

It is no measure of health to be well adjusted to a profoundly sick society.

There comes a time when the next crisis enters the worldstage. By that time, the 'normies' are the first to collapse. The naieve ones who still thought it was a good idea to put more kids into this world. The wageslaves who's identities are based upon the amount of stuff / clothes / cars they buy. The delusional boomers who told you to 'just man up, go to a company, do a firm handshake and get that job'.

Remember kiddos:

If you have nothing, you have nothing to lose either.

How do you go about seeking revenge, in the future, on some of your family members who have a family and kids?

Should you do something unto their kids so that they hate their parents for birthing them?
Or something else?

Spartan lifestyle

this post may seem edgy but bear with me.
I'm considering stopping using electronics,starting sleeping a few hours and in the floor,reinforcing my caloric restriction diet,and training more.
I have read on the male spartans,they were chads but at the same time,not chads. They didnt have sex until 20,and only had it to make babies.the valued bros over hoes.
in a society and civilization lacking meaning for straight male whites,asceticism and self-denial is a truly revolutionary act.
if you guys stop fapping,or remain without fapping,you'll be much closer to the ancient spartans than most modern adults.
let's embrace the beast together!from our despair and chaos,we can create meaning.

I can't play multiplayer games anymore

I sometimes get so much anxiety meeting people and afraid of them getting mad at me. It's come down to games in general, sometimes i'll get bored of playing a game or get sad not having anyone to share any cool moments with. How do I get over this and just play the game for what it is?

Dog needs surgery, I need a job to help pay for it



10 year neet, 34. I had a job at a restaurant in 07, no references (the original bosses there don't even work there anymore). College dropout.


My boy tore his canine ACL (called CCL in dogs), a tendon that holds the knee in position laterally. Without it each bone grinds down onto cartilage until the cartilage is gone and the bone grinds, creating agonizing pain - surgery is not optional, it's necessary. I truly love my dog (technically my younger brother's), who is 8, still alert, fit, and energetic, and has at least 5 years left. I walk with him almost every day and have explored local and national parks with him during the past 6 years. I have already wept tears over the changes that are to come, and the abrupt change this caused in both of our lives, as he is housebound per vet's directive.

We're looking at 2,500 - 3,000 total cost, each knee. Worse, the odds of his other CCL tearing are 40%, so I want to prepare for that.


Any tips on dealing with the neet question when applying? Or what specific jobs, even wagecuck jobs, are easiest to get into? Thankfully I have a car (leftover from early 20s) drive anywhere so that's not an issue.

This isn't about me anymore. Willing to do shit labor as well since I'm somewhat healthy/fit (I don't have massive stamina to do serious hardcore shit though) so if you have any suggestions on that I'd appreciate it. I can quit once I have enough. I would prefer max full time if possible to just grind and get this money

So, you want to be a teacher? How hard can it be? Just what into a classroom and teach those people the lesson. Pretty much the only thing you have to worry about is whether you understand the subject, but hey the “student has become the teacher” is always bullshit you can use right? After all you went through the entire education system. You didn’t fail highschool, you didn’t fail college, and hell you even went after your masters and PhD. How can anyone doubt your credentials now?

As soon as you walk into a classroom, you learn that teaching them is not your job. To the students, your job is to give them all A+ and not waste their time. This ranges from just giving them an A+, to putting on a clown noise and being as entertaining as possible. This is especially true for students who are paying you to teach. Back in the day teachers only cared because the state payed them, or really rich people paid them enough so they had enough fuck-you money to tell the bad rich students to fuck off. If you were really poor, you were fucking thankful and respectful if a teacher took time out of their life to teach you.

Now adays schools have been so awashed in money that the market collapses of the early 21st century and decline of the middle class are beginning to descend on them. This ranges from people not having the money to pay for tuition, to people not rich enough to live in a high-end neighborhood where teachers can be paid fuck-you money, to literal birth rates declining because the cost of children are so astronomical that either you pay for them or the state takes them away from you and charges you as a criminal. Will all the shit children endure you’d think they’d be grateful for at least their existence that you gave them. And if you are not reproductively active have fun taking care of someone else’s batshit insane spawn who did not have the foresight or restraint to enact birth control.

Now why are teachers these days being given such a bad rap? Why are teachers being branded as lazy or inept by the media, politicians, and their parents?

In life, you have plenty of people in authority over you. You have a president, the military, the police, the judge, your doctor, your lawyer, the local county representative you didn’t elect, plenty of people. As a teacher though, you are at the fucking bottom of this authority tower. Here you are given the least power and least respect over the authority you wield over the class. You maybe societies very first leader, though in truth this never was as it was either you parent or your chieftain that was your first authority figure. With the rise knowledge and technology, it has only been recently teachers have been given authority over the first emerging pieces of society.

This is why back in the day teachers were down right psychotic. They could use corporal punishment and insane grading policy and expectations to drive fear in the heart of their students. For those that were willfully disobedient despite corporal punishment, this was the first emergence of a teacher’s problem, as they couldn’t outright eject the student from class. Or if they sent the student to the administration (which back then was JUST the principle) there was someone else who could deal with them by ejecting from the school, but this has been declining as an option as sending a student to the principle would make the administration “look bad”. Hell these days students will outright walk out of your class and go to the administration to complain about YOU.

Now teaching may seem easy, just give everyone A+’s and make a fool of yourself for anyone who still remains in the classroom. But no, this is not enough. For you have a second master. The “administration” that runs the school. The administrations wishes are rather in-line with the students, however they have one added expectation. The administration doesn’t want you to make them “look bad”. What is the definition of “look bad”? Well this begins the woes of a teacher. Anything that can make them “look bad” is roughly anything that challenges the state’s notion as to what the teacher is doing.
