Polyphasic sleep

Has anyone tried the uberman or Everyman sleep schedule?
I sleep 10 hours but want to sleep just 4 hours so I can have more time than normies to be productive.
My main issue is time to actually fall asleep.
Also I want to lucid dream and this method gives me 4 chances a night to lucid dream.

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.

Blue niggers and the idiot public want this ugly guy's blood. Typical.

https://news.yahoo.com/florida-man-had-midnight-rendezvous-145456115.html

All he did was go beat off at night when no one was around at a construction site.

Odd behavior? Sure.

Disgusting? Maybe.

Punishable by jail or prison time? Come on.

No one would give a fuck if it were an attractive Chad or Stacy doing this instead.

If it were an attractive Stacy the Jew media would just laugh it off as a "succubi just wanna have fun" type of thing.

And if it were an attractive hunky Chad stud muffin Jew media would have some broad write up an article that instead of calling for the "stud's" imprisonment instead "wondered why he was out there pleasuring himself when instead he could be in this female author's bed being taken care of?" etc, etc.

The lesson of course is all that matters in ZOG is if you look good, have lots of money or better yet both.

If you don't have either you're considered the scum of the earth, worse than a nigger.

Teetotalers

My mother is a very heavy alcoholic. Someday a couple of years ago, I heard this weird gurgling and moaning, and I just found her sprawled out on the kitchen floor. She was conscious, but just so drunk that she could just barely even hold a conversation with me or even move. That's how much of an alcoholic she is.

I know that after she's been awake for more than five hours that I shouldn't leave my room, because she's completely drunk and will attack anyone walking by her. If she knocks on my door, I'll pretend that I'm asleep. It's not just her, it's a large part of that entire side of her family, and to some extent my grandfather on my father's side. Because of this, I completely abstained from alcohol, and I wonder how much it stunted me. Would I have actually been able to develop social skills in my 20s if I had gone out drinking?

Actually, not only have I completely abstained from alcohol, but sometimes I find myself reading about the prohibition era or watching films from that time just to root for the cops, or sometimes find myself wondering whether going somewhere where alcohol is prohibited would actually be better or not.

Would Chuckie of made a good Wizard meme mascot?

Specifically the original Child's Play 1-3 versions before the current remake and those Bride and Seed of Chuckie movies?

I mean think about it, the character lacks the surly quality that most Wizchan members hate about Pepe the frog.

Also Chuckie is a Jekyll and Hyde type of character which is to say a passive "Good Guy" doll one minute and the soul of a homicidal serial killing maniac named "Charles Lee Ray" the next so the character embodies both the passive Buddhist nature of many Wizards as well the extreme anger of other Wizards.

In this way the 1-3 era Child's Play movie versions of Chuckie would suit us well as a mascot I think.

Conspiratory Wizard

Do any of you believe in any conspiracy theories?

I'm fully convinced that the ruling elites are poisoning food and water with estrogen to feminize men, so they are more docile and obedient. Their plan is to mix all the races together to form one solid slave underclass that will work and consume. The final stage of consumerist capitalism. All nations will perish, all countries will perish. The Talmudic predictions will come true and every man and succubus will be a slave of the ruling jewish overclass. This is also why they are pushing degeneracy and race-mixing to get rid of any obstacles in their master plan to forever enslave humanity.

I don't particularly care, because I'm a nihilistic NEET who will die or kill self in all eventuality, however I dislike having feminine features and being attracted to BBC cuckold, sissification and femdom porn while I'm alive.
This is why I don't consume soy, I also want to buy a house and dig my own well, which the jews couldn't poison. But I don't know how you filter hormones from the water.

food provided by family

MY ENTIRE LIFE my mom fucks me on food. my entire fucking life, she has passive aggressively tortured me with food and feigns ignorance of my suffering.

as a child, i COULD NOT STAND mexican food. i would go hungry instead of eating mexican. i skipped dinner practically my entire childhood because SHE MADE IT ALMOST EVERY FUCKING DAY. by 16 i started getting so angry that i would shout and cry every time she would do this to me, and she still persisted.

by 20 my taste buds evolved and i began enjoying mexican. in fact it's one of my favorites now.
guess what happened once i started being excited for her cooking mexican? she stopped making it. she cooks it once every two years now that i enjoy it.

i really enjoy restaurant and fast food. so of course my mom scoured around and scouted out restaurants till she found one i dislike. a place called "China Garden" in mesa which serves exclusively frozen cafeteria style chink food that is seasoned to be way too sweet, and has stale rice.
and now she brings home food from there 9 times a week despite my stating that i hate it and refusing to eat the food she buys me every single time for a year.

if i say i enjoy a restaurant, she'll complain and pretend to hate it even though her food is fine and complain directly to the manager and never take me there again.

Why does this seem so important to me?"

My neighbor has two dogs. Some small breed and a rottweiler. The Rottweiler barks so loud that I can hear it with headphones on unless I'm listening to something at full volume.

ROOOT ROOOOOOT ROOOT ROOOT ROOOOOT!!!!!!

All fucking day and night. I've complained to the police, animal control, the township, you name it. Nobody will do anything and the police told me to stop calling.

Not to mention whenever I go for a walk every fucking dog within 50 feet starts barking aggressively. I walk outside with hearing protection and I can still hear that shit. I've noticed more and more people bringing them into stores and other places dogs do NOT FUCKING BELONG.

Fuck these disgusting mutants and their faggot owners.

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?

Life in prison

I have been thinking on how to escape wageslavery. I'm tired of having to be an unwilling slave.

Getting imprisoned for life doesn't actually sound so bad. It's basically like living as a reclusive hermit monk. You get fed and they don't actually make you work, because prisoners who are imprisoned for life are seldom allowed to leave their cells.

I barely do anything anyways. Sure, I'd miss anime. But other than that I think it'd do me good. I could start reading books again, maybe follow some other creative pursuits. You're fed on government money, quite literally state-sanctioned NEEThood. Nobody bothers you, you get a single cell all for yourself. It sounds pretty comfy if you ask me. It'd be heaven if I could keep my computer, but it sounds pretty good regardless. I'm seriously considering committing some crime and going to early retirement in a prison.

What do you wizards think? Could you live in a prison for life or are you tied to modern comforts too much?

I am here to talk about imageboards and explain my theory as to what is going to happen to them in the coming years. But i cannot avoid talking about 4chan. As that board is going to play a MAJOR role in whats about to happen. This all came to me after hearing the outrage over 4chan and 8chan and thinking what would happen if they deleted it.

4chan is a titan of a website. It virtually has a monopoly of image board users when compared to this and the other chans of the internet. The traffic there and amount of low quality posts is tremendous. The publicity and reputation it has gathered makes it like a bloated sponge of an imageboard with smaller, dryer sponges surrounding it. Based on the content of /r9k/ i have roughly estimated that there are at the very least 900 normalfaggots on it at all times. But There are also good posters on 4chan. lots of them. With all this tremendous power if 4chan was to fall (not so much 8chan) it would be a net positive for all other image boards. All the normgroids who only know 4chan because of the news and memes would be forced to go back to their other social medias, millions of them. And all the good quality posters who know the internet well enough to know other chans (whom i assume are in the high thousands) like uboachan, sushichan, 7chan and many more will go to those chans and it will be as if the whole process of image boards was started over. Quality posts will go through the roof compared to now and the early board culture would be renewed. If this sticks they will be able to set up rules to keep normies out or heavily restrict them. But instead of it just being one very popular image board there will instead be multiple relatively equal chans with unique board cultures. With the combination of a morally declining west and crab/stormfront rampages relaying back to 4chan and 8chan. It seems as if this is just part of the natural process. If you ask me the new glory days are ahead of us all as soon as 4chan falls.

Shall we discuss some interesting articles or podcasts?

If you find something really interesting or containing beneficial information or viewpoints why not post it and have others discuss it with you?

I've most recently watched a talk between Doctor Gabor Mate and Russell Brand, it starts with talk about addiction and they both have a similar psychological and compassionate outlook on the subject. Gabor Mate also has a very pragmatic description of what an addiction is - Something that gives short-term relief or pleasure that you can't stop (I might have missed something there, maybe that it does harm). But they also end up talking about politics in an extremely deep way and then onto parenting for a little near the end of the podcast. I think the parts on parenting would be particularly interesting to Wizards here where poor childhoods are ubiquitous.. but also their talk on politics and economics and how are society is functioning to serve those interests is very enlightening , even for someone who knew all about that area it still adds colour to my understanding.

Memories

Does anyone have the memories of inventing your own game to play when you were a child? I used to doodle a lot and play games with my imagination. It originally started with drawing stick figures to imagine brawls and fights when I was in kindergarten. But then it begin to get my own twist as time went on. It diversified into multiple forms of games I played in school and in my head while I was bored. For example when I was obsessed with immune system when I was in elementary after reading a book about it, I drew cells and imagined virus and immune cells fighting them as I drew them while scribbling on cells that I declared as dead with my pencil to show that they are no longer existent. Another example of game that I imagined was my own country rising up from Earth than killing all other countries(Like USA or Japan or China) with fighter jets and nuclear bombs. As I was seeing more media I also did one game where I created a 2D "ant war" with ants farming and fighting against random insects. Another one that I had done was the one where the zombies attack cities of other countries and then I draw army and city blazing with pencil while imagining.

After I went to higher grade elementary I developed a standard system of playing these games which is basically drawing continents then putting small images of roads and buildings than talking with your friend while playing for immersion. I did stuff like fighting zombies or fighting against aliens while playing the game. One time I also got a Sim City DLC pack with future cities than I immediately proceeded onto adopting megatowers into my games where I imagine zombies in a small, narrow alleyway preying on humans.

I still play this game but now I don't draw cities with buildings anymore. My games are far more abstract like a HOI3 game than the games I had used to play when I was a child. I also have no more creativity to imagine outside of modern Earth settings or fantasize coherent settings for an imaginary world. One thing that all of my "draw games"(name I gave to the games that I invented) had in common was that they all ended up in entire paper being covered in destruction and pencil marks to symbolize total destruction of the setting regardless it was a stellar empire or an ant colony. I wonder if I was the only one who did and created these sort of autistic games.

Subsidence

I would like to discuss diet and nutrition with you guy, especially in relation to different wizard lifestyles.

For example what would be the ultimate low effort diet for someone who never feels like preparing/cooking food but at the same time doesn't want to have their health and wallet suffer from eating nothing but fast/junk food?

Or what would be a good diet for wizards that unfortunately must do hard labor?

Or what would be good for those that lay around all day?

And so on.

The tl;dl is bet way to feed a wizard thread.

Wizardry is the solution to envy, inadequacy, wanderlust, lack of purpose, motivation, etc.

Do you feel envious? Do you feel inadequate? Do you feel like you have no unique skills to offer to the world?

Might I suggest being a crackpot.

Crackpottery. I'm not being facetious with this answer. I'm being serious. Do something mystical or occult, or even just eccentric or off-the-wall enough. At first, start by imagining how it's like research for an incredibly powerful spell or something. I know it sounds like I'm making a "Wizards should work on their spellbooks" kind of joke, but I'm absolutely serious.

Now, you may think that you won't be able to convince yourself of this, but trust me, you will. If you work on something even for just a day, your mind will convince yourself that what your doing has to be worth it, after all, you've spent all that time on it! You literally do not have to do one iota of rationalization. The consequences are as follows:

- Whenever your envy gets triggered, you get to say to yourself, "Well, he may be doing X, but I'M doing Y, which is far more important/powerful/breathtaking/etc."
- If it's obscure/arcane/fueled by your imagination enough, you will be the only one in the world who is doing this. You literally have NO COMPETITION. YOU ARE THE BEST IN THE WORLD AT IT.
- You will probably never actually see your project to fruition. WHICH IS EXACTLY WHAT YOU WANT. That way, your psychological crutch will stay with you.

Moreover, after working on it for a while, at the very least you will have something impressive. A very beautifully designed spellbook that looks like it's out of Lovecraft. Notebooks and binders full of bullshit equations. It doesn't matter. It's yours, you're the best at it, you're at the forefront.

hi /wiz/, there was a device I saw earlier in a documentary but I can't find it again, and I don't know what to search to find it, as I remember only a little about it.
It was an electric device used by the US military and it was about waves as far as I remember, it made a very creepy sound that resembled a human voice. it generated a tone that sounds like an aggressive human voice giving orders. I don't remember the purpose of the device, but it sounded like voice in minute 2:44 of this video https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=JnELNv-zqo4
It was either a weapon or an experimental device.
if any of you know what I'm talking about, can you name the device please?

Is it weird that I get really angry at marketing-speak? I just find it so unmindful. Like it was written by a robot.

Every crappy product can write that it's "high quality". But what makes it high quality? They don't say that though. So why even say it at that point when it has no meaning since every product claims it? Why not just be factual? Instead of "vibrant lifelike colors thanks to the True-ColorTM technology" write "IPS panel with 100% sRGB coverage, 400 nits brightness and 4K resolution". Even that doesn't cover it all but it's something. Or if you are going to claim that your food is made from the freshest ingredients have an actual list of the distributers and origin.

Now of course most people don't have the knowledge and time to research everything they buy in full. So I wish they would just cut the crap and sell everything in plain boxes. Add some flashy logo or picture of attractive people smiling or something but spare me the marketing bullshit.

It's especially awful in job postings. They are not just looking for someone to work at their fast food restauraunt but for young, dynamic people with a passion! for gastronomy. They are not offering a paycheck for a simple but tedious job but an opportunity to work in a exciting environment!

I just don't understand who writes and continues to write this. How no one steps in an says "this is really cynical and inhumane. just be honest with people".

I made a terrible mistake.

I don't know if you ever had trouble with remembering the multitude of websites you visit every month in the Internet, I really do. Among the things human beings made just right are: 1) bookmarks; 2) bookmark sync.

Well, I freshly installed my Linux but accidentally forgot the .xml archive with all my bookmarks in the live-usb -yeah? guess what - now all my sites are gone. It's been like two hours or so of a frustrated tentative of remembering them. I can't search Google either, they are of a very restricted kind of public.

Tried Google sync, only trash. Why…?

If I could only remember the name of the forums, there is information there that I was planning to use in some article in the future. One of them is a humorous site with a forum, it appeared for the first time as a newspaper column in a Chicago newspaper in 1986. The other is a small forum were I used to collect information on Ancient Rome.

I want my forums back.

Female dentists

I just spent 40 minutes receiving continuous pain getting 2 fillings from my female dentist (looks to be in her 30s) and 60 minutes prior to that getting a cleaning (scaling of hardened plaque known as tartar) prior to that from a female hygenist (looked to be in her 20s). Since I am a virgin and don't even date or have any female friendships, this is pretty much the most intimate interaction I've ever had with succubi, and it is very strange to me.

Particularly because I haven't been to the dentist in about 10 years and only got around to it recently because of getting my NEETbux and seeing visible cavities in the mirror and feeling pain and realizing I don't want to lose my teeth because I don't want to restrict my options of eating or losing jaw stability in case I get punched during some supermarket chimpout.

I think this falls within the guidelines of rule 2. This isn't romance, this is paid professionals doing their job and me trying not to choke on my own saliva and mucous (I started a horrible throat/nose cold yesterday) or couch and get a hole punctured through my cheek.

That said… some of these pros do have decent mannerisms and even though I realize they must detest me, some primal part of me does kinda buy into it and feel relaxed and cared for. I believe it is part of their training to ask questions, get people to feel at ease, feign interest in their clients. I know that consciously but I have a very active imagination which runs away with me when I'm bored (for some reason they put Ellen on the TV and I'm not assertive enough to ask them to change it) which I think influences subconscious reactions to them.

What was embarrassing to me is casual questions they ask are kinda triggering for my being shamed for society about my lifestyle. She asked if I had plans after my appointment and I said no… then if I was working and I said no…

I think my shame is reducing though because in the past when people would ask me if I was working, I would be misleading and say I was a "temp worker" which is technically true (I worked for a temp agency about 6 years ago) but it implies I work for them recently, which I haven't, because I was late and got fired and I've been too embarrassed (or maybe lazy or prideful to work at minimum wage) to ask my agency if they'd led me try working again…

But since I simply said I wasn't working now, I think I've just gotten more comfortable (less ashamed) about my situation. In the past I used to give vague/deceptive replies because I didn't want to feel embarrassed in front of succubi, but now I'm a lot less hung up about how they feel. I know I'm not a prospect for them and it's very freeing. I wonder if old/obese/ugly men begin to feel a comfort in this (assuming they are intelligent enough to realize it) once they come to a resolution that since relationships aren't on the table, that you no longer need to care as much about what others think, just treat them to the same degree you treat men that you must interact with.

My primary concern is usually stuff like "could some stalker have recently them I like bishoujos and then they'll try to rid the world of a dirty lolicon by jamming a scalpel up into his brain?" which is terrifying in its own way, but I convince myself it is obscure enough. A baker's dozen years ago when I was a teenager my petty prior-normy concerns would've been stuff like "how pathetic does she find me that she would never date me?" It's embarrassing to remember facets of a former self like that!

Now, pity is kind of awesome. I actually got polish for free today (it's not covered under my bux) and I wonder if it might have something to do with my candid replies about being unemployed and not having social plans later in the day. I'm sure being sick and polite and apologetic about being sick doesn't hurt too. Also it's possible she didnt' know, and I could have interjected about it not being covered earlier on but waited a few seconds until she had done a few teeth before saying "is this scaling" and then explaining to "no, polishing" that polishing wasn't covered.

So anyway… I don't know how often you go to the dentist, but I am curious about your experiences with it, whether male or female. I obviously have a ways to go in my enlightenment that I even give a shit about the gender of my health care workers, but I think it's still okay to have ephemeral reactions to human touch. It's pretty much the only touch I get. I plan to get as much dental work done as my bux can cover, so perhaps once a year. That's about how often I'll bother with a haircut too, which is the only other way I can recall having human contact, aside from accidentally bumping into people, or when I need to offer my forearm as a makeshift cane to help my mom get up from the ground.

I had a dream last night. I was transported to the past in my school. There I saw one of my bullies, but this time I was stronger, I was towering over my bully with my large frame and size. My bully was much smaller than I remembered, he cowered like a rat in a corner about to accept his defeat. With my left hand I grabbed him by the neck, I then took my right hand and used my fingers to shove into his eyes. My fingers wriggled around his sockets and moved around the wet round balls, it felt warm and slimy but it wasn't unpleasant. I felt a great release of delight in getting back at my bully. After years of be oppressed by him I had finally overturned my position of being a victim into being the dominator. I heard his cries for help, his mouth was wide open screaming in pain. Without his eyes he wouldn't be able to see anymore, crippling him made me smile in innocent glee. Now, he would be able to feel as I did when he abused me. I thought it was a fair punishment for him, to pull out his eyes, and letting the blood drip down his face. But it wasn't over. I wouldn't let it end here. I had much more to do, he still has his limbs in tact and his organs remaining. I would have ripped him apart in the next moments but it was then my dream ended and I woke up. I was disappointed that I couldn't continue my punishment. After all, dreams are just dreams, made-up fantasies. I couldn't let go the feeling of pure pleasure when I tortured my bully. I want to feel it again.

Hey there wizzies, someone posted this in another image board and I've had a few really relaxing days vegging out in bed and browsing global radio stations, so I thought I'd share it.

When you go to the website you've got access to the whole world, just rotate the globe and zoom in and it'll auto-search for radio stations from that area so you can listen to live broadcasts around the world. Japan tends to have quite a few comfy jazz/nostalgaic channels, let me know what you find wizzies, there are other features I haven't explored much so have fun with it.
R: 8 / I: 1

do you sometimes feel like being a wizard isn't the most important thing about us?

One major reason I still avoid sex at 33 is that normies who go and fuck succubi just don't seem to get any long-term fulfillment from it. However temporarily happy they might be, in the aftermath I think most of them feel let down by the experience and probably lose their sense of wonder for erotica. I really enjoy erotica and don't want to lose my sense of wonder for it. I think I idealize sex in my mind and know that 3D would never be able to match 2D, that it would come with too many complications, so it's better just to fap to waifus and explore fantasy scenarios from a safe space.

To me it feels like being a wizard is can be a ramification of having important values, but not actually a cause of them. Like we abstain from sex because we are observant, have forethought, witness how society functions, how people change. We see behind the curtain at components normies overlook, and we can't unsee those components, which push us away from participating.

That's the so-called "volcel" point of view, mind you. It would not reflect the so-called "crab" point of view, and I consider them to be wizards too. I'm not sure how much better off their celibacy makes them, if they constantly waste efforts trying to obtain sex or are upset because they cannot pursue it.

At the same time, while volcels are not wasting time pursuing it or fretting over its lack (partly I think because it feels better to choose a path than for there to be only one path) I think it is actually our prioritized time and conscientiousness which elevates us above normies, not actually the lack of sex.

Say for example: some succubus drugged you and raped you in your sleep and you never found out about it. You'd technically no longer be a virgin anymore, but your mind wouldn't actually change. You'd still have elevated priorities above a normy. "Mana" is for the most part a metaphor, and I think when we discuss succubi stealing mana, rather than it being a metaphor for sperm, I think we can also view it as succubi stealing our souls: our attentions, our worries, our identities.

That is what is protected by not being involved in relationships. However, these factors can be stolen even without sex: succubi (and even men) can steal those factors from you regardless of whether or not sex is involved. Whether it's a so-called "crab" friendzoned by some succubus he's thirsty for, or some guy getting bossed around by his mom, they can still wreck your life, virgin or not.

Something struck me about Sunburst's outburst of ennui in pic related. It made me think, what if Sunburst was a virgin/wizard but didn't consider himself IMPORTANT because of it (his discipline did not lead to magical competence) and just decided to give up on his celibacy and wade into the disgusting cesspool of normy non-virgindom?

Looking at this, it feels like an analogy of slitting wrists (do ponies have wrists?) because it's like he's giving up on what's most important to him. Giving away his prized possessions: his pride, his purpose, his discipline. Is this the type of shit a guy might do before ending it all? Like if a guy was a vegetarian but he's going to kill himself so he just decides "fuck it, I'm eating meat" and hates himself as he does it, but he wants to hate himself?

I wonder about guys like Hot Wheels… when he decided to go fuck some disgusting landwhale, was he maybe just contemplating suicide anyway? He obviously didn't, but in a way he did… I mean a big part of you dies when you do that. There's a being left over, but one with different drives, different perspective. Alien in a way. It's not like cheating on a diet by eating a big chocolate cake, it's like something you couldn't come back from. It would be burned into your memory. It would infiltrate all your future fap sessions. The 3DPD would wriggle its way in to block out the faces of your 2D waifus and you could never enjoy a fap again.

Sometimes I shudder to think about that, but in the same time, part of being a fan of erotica means you sometimes force yourself to think about things that make you shudder, things which have negative sides. It's not all for fapping. That's why sometimes you opt not to look away from upsetting manga that depict crying raped succubi who kill themselves afterward, because it's about making the hard choice to encounter ideas which challenge our happiness.

Doing nothing in peace

I lay naked in my bed.
The sun shines on my hairy exposed pale flesh through a few clouds. It's Sunday, no work, roommate gone. The fan is gently blowing wind into my buttcrack. It rained a while ago, so it's not too hot. 25 degrees Celsius. Listening to Bizet for the last 40 minutes. Don't feel like getting up even to piss. I'm bored, but at the same time it's so tranquil and peaceful. Why can't it always be like this bros? Why do I have to work to enjoy a moment like this once a week? Why can't I just have my own apartment without having to interact with other humans? I either have to live alone and be a wagie and suffer slavery or be a NEET, but suffer my parents. My mother constantly berates me at home, to clean this, wipe that, to throw out the trash, to wash the dishes, to go buy something. I hate the fact that I can't just exist like this for eternity, like a lazy rotting aristocrat lying in my bed until my last hour.

I went to a forest yesterday and there we so many mosquitoes there. They swarmed me and sucked my blood. I had a strong allergic reaction to all the pollen. My legs were scraped by branches and poison ivy and later by the crops as I had to escape the forest via a field, because I'm retarded and got lost. It scarred my legs and they were so itchy I scratched them to blood, same as with my arms as they itch from sweat and allergies. Fuck Varg and his bullshit. Nature is hell. Civilization is great, comfort is great. I would rather die than to return into the woods.

Russian atheist volcelist

A lot of times it feels like Wizchan was the 1st place ever to advocate for volceldom on secular grounds without any religious basis. So I think this guy is an interesting character whose been doing it online before us. Not sure if he was ever mentioned here, I never saw it.

Glasses-wearers

How many of my fellows wear glasses, and how long have you worn them? I got these in elementary school. I can't help but suppose glasses-wearers might be over-represented in wizard populations relative to the overall population.

the astral world

has anyone here entered the astral plane?
you astral proyect you NEED at least 40 days of celibacy(no fapping! no p0rn!)and its a wonderful experience.
it eases fear of death,its fun and creative,like doing DMT on a roller coaster.
my few so far experiences on the astral have given me a deep insight into the nature of reality and of the human being.

Wizardly Marriage

This wizard aged 35 married Hatsune Miku. He's very public about it. He organized a proper wedding, went on a honeymoon with the doll representing her, booked a hotel and a flight for two people and received honeymoon gifts from the staff. He even begged his mother to recognize his 2D waifu as his legitimate spouse.
What's your opinion on this? Would you ever marry your waifu? Would you do it publicly to encourage others who also have feelings for 2D characters? Do you think it'd be too embarrassing and cringe?

He seems like a very nice and likable fellow to be honest. I applaud him for what he did and the courage of doing it in such a public official manner. I can't even comprehend doing something like this. I'd probably die of cringe and embarrassment.

forced asceticism

Im afraid I will have to live a life of no food and no money,like a beggar with a house,because its very difficult to work and have a job.
What pains me the most is losing my internet and videogame electricity, bland food isnt an issue but i like my internet.
I have an apartment and 40K units of local currency neetbux but inflation will make it a problem.
Maybe ill stay all day inside or wandering around the streets.
im sad.

Free Hold Apartments

Are free hold apartments a wizardly investment?

There's a lot of shoe-box sized apartments in the nearest city between 100 and 200 k, that's around four and a half years worth of rent. The way I see it, if I live as cheap as possible and save all extra income I could potentially get one of these a year or two after I finish studying. This would enable me to
1) be where the jobs are
2) get rid of transport expenses
3) give me the option to go full hermit before I hit 40
Heck, I might even be able to get remote work, or do webshit from home.
Shit, I could even start buying multiple over the years if I keep saving for it and let the rent money fund my early retirement into NEET life
Any other wizzies got there own apartments or thought of buying one?

What's the longest you've ever held down a job? I seem to go about a year on each before I feel like I'm about to have a mental breakdown and quit.

Luckily I never travel or buy expensive things, so I save up a bunch of money and can neet for a year or two after each job, until I run out of money.

Finding a Normie repellent hobby

Serious question: Are there any hobbies left that haven't been invaded by groids? It seems gaming, coding, and even anime have long been gaining ground in the normgroids circles and are in serious danger of being watered down/ruined.

I wish I was religious. Living an ascetic monk life in some Greek monastery seems like the perfect life. Instead I'm stuck here in my study destroying myself with no hope for what lays beyond the void if theres anything at all.

Any wizard here was jailed? I think I will be a murder next few days and will spent at last 30 years inside some Brazilian prison.
There is nothing I can do about it and if I don't go to jail they will lock me up at some mental hospital for life.

Gay/Bisexual Wizards

From the porn threads I can tell that we have a couple of fags here, but that has me wondering, why do you choose the wizard path when gay sex is so easy to get? I've been coming to terms with the fact that I'm very likely bisexual, but the thing is I just have no interest in having sex with men, (granted I'm not all that attracted to them to begin with, but I'm certainly a fan of digital dicks). I've racking my head for months trying to make sure I'm not repressed or in denial, but I genuinely feel like having sex with men would be the most pointless shit ever outside of the base pleasure of it all. I think the societies negative view of gay men who don't embrace their sexuality has gotten to me because of the relentless shaming of closeted fags like myself, but of course saying no to sex with succubus is much more acceptable since its seen as a admirable feat for a straight man to control his sexual urges, unlike the fag who is then just self hating.
