Hey wizzies, so since about 5 years I've been dealing with this problem and it's only gotten worse over time.

I've been isolated for more than 5 years now, and I also during that time I haven't interacted with people online for more than 10-15 hours, so all I do is read books or scientific articles, I rarely watch any kind of media.

So now I'm trying to deal with this problem, I can't seem to interact with someone as I a accustomed to… as in, the choice of words and the sentence structure I prefer, many people online have told me I sound like a bot trying to write a formal letter with an obscure thesaurus, so it seems that if I carefully choose the words I use and greatly simplify my speech, I can seem to blend in easily. But the problem is that after a couple of days some of my verbiage starts to slip and people ghost me online or… start insulting me passive aggressively irl every time they see me, and in groups, you can see the glee in their eyes as they try to demean me, it's quite strange.

I used to think it was the combination of my strange way to communicate and my unorthodox views about many different topics, but for the past 2 years I seem to incense people online just by the way I express myself, and it's so bizarre because I basically make up some hobbies that are considered normal such as hiking, gardening and martial arts, abstain for giving my actual views on any kind of topic, I just spout the most generic mainstream views and still I get people imitating the way I write, insulting and ghosting me….and the weird thing is that I was talking to some rather introverted computer scientists the last 3 times, you'd expect they don't mind compsci jargon but they actually did.

So soon I will need to get into a job (non STEM related, a retail job actually) and I just don't want my coworkers to make a plan to get me fired again, any ideas? should I just only speak when necessary and on the most simple terms I can think of? even when I am drunk on high on weed I eventually start expressing myself the way I am accustomed so I don't know what to do…

I'm just speaking from personal experience, but I tend to view the vast majority personal interactions like interactions with lawyers or the police. You want to minimize the amount you say because in reality anyone is a criminal and everything you say can and will be used against you.
Remember that everything you heard as a child was doublespeak whose purpose was emotional manipulation of the youth. As you get older, you understand that it's all a bullshit game that everyone can't speak against and pretends to go along with lest they break the chains of the social order. Case in point, everyone is out for themselves at any possible chance they can get, there's no sharing or cooperation. So, it behooves you to not give them _any_ ammunition. Everyone is an enemy. Everyone is a DA trying to make a case against you. Everyone wants to step on you to advance themselves. No one is _actually_ a friend or ally–it's all just realpolitik.
Obviously, you have to speak. Just like when you have an interaction with the cops you can't be completely mute, but you still have to not "say" anything. In my opinion, this is the REAL reason for celebrity news or sports or weather. It's filler speech material. Stuff you can say that just fills the void without any meaningful content that you can be liable for.

You need to be more aggressive with people when they try to fuck with you. Instantly hit them back twice as hard (unless they're actually a sociopath, in which case gg just GTFO of the situation) – if they mock your speech, ask if that makes them feel like a big man (or upper class, or whatever they seem self-conscious about). They're playing a game, and if you don't play back they won't stop.

Definitely. Everyone is playing games but the fucked up part is that now I realize that game includes the types of words you use.

Alright, from now on I will choose my words more carefully and never use words that are considered non-standard.

I tried doing this many times, using their on passive aggressive way to deliver insults and even being upfront but it doesn't change anything, they keep verbally attacking me at the same rate.

OP here, that is an amazing quote from Cioran, describes me perfectly. As for the other 2 images, that can be the case for some wizards, but I don't see any of those things described in there as goals, such as, getting a (wage)slave job, as there's not much difference between slavery in the Ottoman Empire times and modern wageslaving besides the absence of physical punishment nowadays, I don't feel alone because there is no one I can relate to, and there never was, not only in my immediate environment, but on the internet as well, as Jung put it: "As a child I felt lonely, and I still feel like that, because I see and point to things that others do not seem to see and don't even want to see them. Loneliness isn't about not having anyone around but it is about not being able to communicate the things one thinks are important, or to having to shut up about certain points of view that others find unproper".

The lifestyle I have managed to more or less pursue (not fully, due to monetary constraints) makes me quite content and cheery, it's only due to the predatory plutocratic covert penal colony that is set up for anyone but the top 0.01% oligarchs that sometimes I feel frustrated as I have to do deal with so many unnecessary time-wasting activities (any kind of job, including white collar ones)to get the proper funds for said lifestyle.

As for obtaining degrees and credentials, that is something I'd like to have if it actually had a good benefit/cost ratio, but time will tell. If I get a proper source of income without them, there would be no point in getting them.

As for a S.O., I try not to rush things, and if it doesn't happens and I end up alone, that wouldn't change my life in any way, not even in a modest way because I've been on my own for the vast majority of my life, besides, there are many alternatives out there (for emotional comfort), moderate dependence liability opiates such as kratom, high dependence opites such as oxycodone, high dependence GABAergics such as benzos and GHB, highly effective and inexpensive older antidepressants, stimulants… and even chatty pseudo-sentient androids in the medium term future. With these, alongside the internet and digital media that helps from parasocial interactions, humans do not need each other anymore for emotional self-regulation at all.

I don't mind what my family thinks of how I lead my life, as long as that doesn't interfere with me getting money out of them, as for reaching milestones and getting anyone to recognize them I don't see the point, I've been isolated for half a decade and partially isolated for more than a decade, so, those are nothing but vestigial self-regulatory needs.

I'm 29 and I'm not addicted to any substance and I'm not depressed or even sad, I also don't have anything I regret for.

Basically all I need is proper funds without having to interact with people for more than 10 hours per week. So… yeah. It's tricky. In the meantime I need to deal with hostile co-workers in a wageslave job.

>"What if some wizards created a shared identity to shitpost & create an alternate reality game?"


What do you mean by this? I don't see how this is relevant to the topic of the thread. Care to elaborate?

"…another hassle judge experienced was making sure his futuristic movie actually seemed like it was said in the future, which meant choosing wardrobe that could be plausible 500 years from now, one day the production's costume designer brought in some clunky footwear that was made of plastic, Judge thought look at these stupid plastic shoes you'd have to be an idiot to wear them he was wary of using them in the film out of concern they could actually become popular by the time it was released, but he was assured that could never happen, cut to two years later and Crocs were everywhere. Another time judge wasn't far off from reality was when he shot two minutes of just a bare butt for the movie within a movie, titled simply "Ass", the crew went to a reform school and used 250 students for a scene where a packed movie theater audience can't stop laughing at this quote-unquote film, Judge assumed he would have to direct the crowd since a movie featuring just a flatulent butt surely wouldn't make any sense without context, to his surprise and dismay the audience all started laughing without direction and couldn't stop, Judge turned to his director of photography and pondered why they were even bothering to make Idiocracy when they could just release this…"

"That's only part of the story, when Judge sat down to write this movie, he exaggerated to such extremes that he never thought they would actually come true, at least in his lifetime, when asked
about this in a recent interview he commented: "I'm no prophet, I was off by about 490 years." There have been countless videos made comparing a certain political leader's speeches to those by president Dwayne Elizondo Mountain Dew Herbert Camacho, Fox even shut down the possibility of Terry Crews reprising his role as president Dwayne Elizondo Mountain Dew Herbert Camacho for a series of fake campaign ads before the 2016 U.S. election, the studio feared the comedic videos would be viewed by some as attack ads, even the movie's jokes that seemed outrageous like the secretary of state being sponsored by Carl's Jr. "I'm a secretary of state brought to you by Carl's Jr" practically became prophecy when the actual CEO of Carl's Jr. was nominated to become the United States Secretary of labor. But it's not just political aspects that have made Idiocracy so relevant, its depiction of a society reliant on pictures for communication mimics the growing obsession with emojis, the film shows a world where curse words are no longer taboo but used as powerful marketing tools, which seems familiar… much like the movie's omnipresent fluid "Brawndo", that we would actually come to see COVID testing sites shamelessly sponsored by big name stores and drink companies, even a show like "Ow My Balls" or "Clash Between Phallic Monster Trucks" don't seem like they would be that out of place on one of today's countless cable channels and streaming services, corporate mega mergers like the movies ATT Time Warner Taco Bell have practically become reality look no further than Disney's acquisitions of giant brands like Pixar, Lucasfilm, Marvel and Idiocracy's owner 20th Century Fox…"

Read your posts in the thread OP.
Advice: As far as IRL is concerned you may be best to limit the superfluous social interactions and learn how to speak in the most effective way which can mean "dumbing down" your speech or alternatively continue as you are because it may make no difference.

Adive for online: Don't even bother with normalfags beyond taking an interest in how they think. Don't write them off completely as for example you may share a niche interest with another fanatic who will be able to help you discover information faster than searching yourself (think niche music to get what I mean).
The good thing about the internet is that there are many people online and you will find someone you relate to eventually or at least able to interact with but do not expect normalfags ever to be that person.

Within your personal expression I seen some similarities with myself as if we are looking at the same image with different shades. Take what I say with a grain of salt as I do not want to encourage you to keep from talking to others and can only go off my own experience, I have no friends in any form either.
It feels as if you can become too far gone and it becomes less that you don't fit in but you don't want to fit in but yearn for someone to see eye to eye with. Whether your individuality flourishes or atrophies in isolation it may not matter but we simply lose ourself.. it is as if we are aliens that crash landed but lose all our home planet memories so everyone looks at us weird as we look at them weird and at most you can share information which has importance as if it is part of some goal as you mentioned but never just for the sake of interacting itself.

I agree and I think I've been doing this for quite some time now.

>The good thing about the internet is that there are many people online and you will find someone you relate to eventually or at least able to interact with but do not expect normalfags ever to be that person.


Well, it's been a decade and still haven't found anyone with similar interests but perhaps one day I will.

>Take what I say with a grain of salt as I do not want to encourage you to keep from talking to others and can only go off my own experience, I have no friends in any form either.


When I interact with people either online or irl it eventually becomes a shitshow one way or another, not with everyone but enough people to ruin the interactions I have with people who are neutral with me.

>It feels as if you can become too far gone and it becomes less that you don't fit in but you don't want to fit in but yearn for someone to see eye to eye with.


Yes!

>Whether your individuality flourishes or atrophies in isolation it may not matter but we simply lose ourself.. it is as if we are aliens that crash landed but lose all our home planet memories


I agree 100%, it's been a while since I reached the conclusion that I am basically a ghost, the weird part is that now I finally realize that I never cared about forming any kind of bond with anyone else besides a significant other or even have them as mere acquaintances, I derive no emotional benefit from it, my brainwiring is different.

>so everyone looks at us weird as we look at them weird and at most you can share information which has importance as if it is part of some goal as you mentioned but never just for the sake of interacting itself.

i've done a lot of socializing on Discord and ended up burning every bridge and being viciously hated by several people who namedrop me monthly for years still to this day, the usual.

and nothing too terrible ever even happened.
my theory is that in our current dopamine addicted, single mother childhood society that people just aren't mentally capable of talking for 3-4 hours.
i think that even if you were extremely charismatic, approachable and fun to talk to that people would still find reasons to sperg the fuck out on you and hate you anyway just because nobody has the equipment to deal with elongated, heavy discussion anymore.
people just can't handle it. they want to be playing video games and watching streamers, not talking to you. or to anybody. the ones who speak the least last the longest in Discord cliques, i'll say that much.

My advice if you want to get in good with Discord people is to keep your heavier topic chats well under 40 minutes long.
keep them tantalized in the meantime with down's syndrome emojis, gay furry sex talk and random funny pictures and video once a while throughout the day (no music or else they'll sperg out on you).

i had an online friend message me just yesterday saying "wow i started pretending to be retarded with our mutual friend, and it worked! he likes me a lot now."

mentally unhinged Discord weirdos will explode and start crying and hating you if you make them use their brains for 4 hours straight like you've been trying to do. nobody wants to use their brain these days. You'll have to ration them if you want to have good chats with people and keep them around a long time.

> instead of talking to maybe the odd few who are worth talking with?
there are none. after all the servers i went through, i emerged with zero new contacts.
wizardchan bans and deletes ID's and chats, which is sad and ironic since this is the only place i can think of worth speaking to anybody now.

Well, I see society as a rigged game, governments being the muscle of the oligarchs, which are basically a mafia that pretends they are not. So, everyone else that is not in that big club is an expendable wageslave and is treated like cattle, so, 92% people, or so.

Those oligarchs at the top caring only about keeping their wealth cause almost all of the societal problems we are dealing with since the 19th century, drug epidemics, utter destabilization and collapse of most third world countries, destabilization on some first world countries such as Nordic ones, now this SCAMdemic that's being used to render most people into poverty and establish neo-feudalism, the medical system also being in control of those at the top, rendering it useless as we can see with the obesity, diabetic and cancer epidemics… and the list goes on.

>Also, do you have any actual education in the fields you're interested in?


Yea I do, but it seems no matter what I do I simply cannot deal with people for extended periods of time.

>hat are some of your favorite books, and what genre is your favorite?


For fiction: A confederacy of dunces, Against nature, No longer human, Wittgenstein's nephew, Journey to the end of the night, Nausea, The stranger.

Non-fiction: usually anthropology and neurology, a lot of philosophy too.

I prefer non-fiction, but when I read fiction I prefer Philosophical novels.

>What exactly was the reasoning given for when you were fired from these jobs?


Underperformance, but it was due to my co-workers leaving me to do the stuff I wasn't qualified to do, as I put it on my resume, I complained to the boss and thankfully most of the bosses I had we're neutral with me but couldn't do much to help me.

>Personally, I want to get more involved in knowing about things like football/basketball/mainstream music/etc. and just become a yuppie

>Those oligarchs at the top caring only about keeping their wealth cause almost all of the societal problems we are dealing with since the 19th century, drug epidemics, utter destabilization and collapse of most third world countries, destabilization on some first world countries such as Nordic ones
I disagree. The atrocities, wars, and disrepair of the 19th and 20th centuries were "naturally" occurring, for the most part. Napoleon's rise was a direct reaction to the French Revolution, Hitler's rise and the Bolshevik Revolution were direct reactions to WWI and industrialization, etc. It could be argued that, say, WWI was a result of faulty oligarchical diplomacy, or the French Revolution was a result of the French monarchy/aristocracy ruling badly and being at odds with each toher, but why would this absolve "reactionary" individuals like Napoleon/Hitler/Stalin from their own actions? You could argue that, when the previous oligarchy is abolished and replaced by someone like Napoleon or Stalin, it's only a reintroduction of a new form of oligarchy or absolute ruler, but there is no real alternative. When the old oligarchy is destroyed such as in the French and Bolshevik Revolutions, and the people have a chance to rule, a new oligarchy is simply put back into place - this is because it's the optimal structure of civilization. Note that I'm not saying Napoleon is anything like the other two examples given, in fact I am a big fan of the great Western conquerors like Napoleon/Alexander/Caesar, but that's not to say he didn't plunge Europe into a state of constant war.
>now this SCAMdemic that's being used to render most people into poverty and establish neo-feudalism
How, exactly, is the pandemic being used to institute neo-feudalism? From experience, any definition equating the neo-fuedalist goal you speak of to feudalism would likely also encompass society as it is now anyway.

To relate this back to the topic, by the way, none of these takes of yours are radical or unorthodox outside of the neo-feudalist thing, and that's only because most people don't know what feudalism is or how that would work. The different, I suspect, is that most people simply don't care or aren't as articulate in their beliefs as you are. Going up to someone and telling them these things would be weird, because they may not have the same interests in politics or history, and so it's the same as trying to force a conversation regarding any other hobby onto someone (albeit more extreme because of the topics).
>Yea I do, but it seems no matter what I do I simply cannot deal with people for extended periods of time.
What degree do you have?

I've never read any of those books, I'm more into philosophy and Ancient Greek literature. Phaedo is one of my favorite texts, for example, especially towards the end when Socrates begins musing about 'higher realities' and beings. I have read The Plague by Camus, though.
>why do you want to become a yuppie?
It seems comfy - structured, pristine, streamlined. American Psycho is my favorite movie which may influence this (yes I know its message is anti-yuppie). I wouldn't mind getting into the business world, and plan to in the future.

Oh, and when you mention that you start to irritate people after 3-4 hours or so of talking - this may be for the same reason I alluded to above. People tend to take very strong stances on things like politics without any actual interest in them. I used to be able to spend hours and hours at a time arguing with people over political philosophy and that sort of thing, and it's just that they don't really care enough to do that as diligently.

>The different, I suspect
I meant to say "The difficulty, I suspect" here.

I have found from experience that if you want to have any chance of "fitting in" you completely have to cut out the parts of yourself that makes you, you.

It also used to be that people would start hating me if they spent any significant amount of time together with me, most of the time the cause would be that I would start talking with them about some kind of deeper subject, they would just stare at me like "why the fuck is that interesting".

I remember in school if somebody said "peepee poopoo" or simply the word "sex" the entire class would erupt into laughter, and I would just sit there thinking why the fuck do you guys that's funny. I have learned the hard way if you want people to treat you like you are part of the tribe, it's best to just mimic what other people do. If somebody says a joke no matter how unfunny or unoriginal I find it, I just look at other people in the room and fake a laughter if other people are laughing
