Look, I ve never been to psychiatrist neither psychologist. But I know that something wrong with me, I know for sure that I had strong social phobia for many years and perhaps I may have aspergers syndrome and some kind of neurosis? Also I m introverted male. I ve never had any friend.

I wonder if I go to psychiatrist and I wont be quite honest to him. What would happen?

Would he find out that I m laying even if I would say logical things to him, or he wouldnt find out it?

Imagine being so pea-brained as to believe that you can reduce the causes of complex psychological states to something like excessive wanking. All of these supposed positive changes could be attributed to a simple psychological placebo caused by the hyped up expectations, like 'your world suddenly becoming beautiful'.

You have to be a seriously deranged masturbator for NoFap to cause any kind of actual meaningful psychological reorganization.

I think a lot of us don't have friends because we're embarrassed about the state of our life and suspicious that people might pretend to be our friends to exploit us. That's generally why I don't go out of my way to try to make friends, and only give basic courtesy when others initiate interactions with me. I think my nervous smile gives off the impression I'm not comfortable even though I am not outwardly hostile so that people realize to not press too much

YouTube used to be full of interesting characters and content. Now everything is overproduced and it's all the same, they stick to the same formula and it's hard to find the good channels like this which I only found on 8chan btw.

I think you are confusing the 90s with the early 00s.

It was a pain in the ass to get IRC to work in the 90s without technical knowledge and most people were actually careful with giving personal info about themselves. It was rare for people to even ever give away their real name on most BBS.
I think chatrooms only just barely started catching on around 98 or 99 by early adopters, but actually became popular in the early 00s.
I mean they existed earlier then that, but they were pretty unpopulated and unstable.

Not sure if I had shit luck with IRC, you had good luck with IRC, or one of our memories of the technical difficulties from it are off.
Then again I know for a fact nothing the shit box I had back then could be done in 5 seconds when it came to stuff online, lol.

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Demiurge

Can we discuss this figure? Do you believe he's real? Do you see him as a symbolic depiction or metaphor of humanity's doomed existence and suffering?

I don't know if such a being exists but the more I learn about the material realm and all we know so far about physics, it really seems that the entire material universe has suffering as a default feature on every sentient being. Evil and destruction is easier to do and more difficult to fix or reverse, even the smallest bacteria's life is defined by killing or being killed (or harming or being harmed) in some way

Maybe God thinks like Nietzsche? Pain and suffering make stronger people at the sacrifice of the weak. Maybe the Human Cultivation Project is a fitting term in this case.

Or the Demiurge is Yahveh obviously and Lucifer is the father of light? This explains why he can't save any of his seed, because he is just a fallen angel that is powerless against the godhead.

Or God simply wants us to be disgusted by evil, that is why He allows it?

Well there you go, trying to apologize for all the awful shit that happens every single second in this world. "Well maybe He wants that way." Sure it can well be he's a sadistic dumbshit. But at this point I don't think anyone needs such a god. We have a good number of idiots right here on Earth making it worse for everyone as it is.

I'm not trying to apologize at all, I just want answers. Even if gods do exist it is evident that they are unreliable just like most humans are. But still, I think the matter of gods is the most important question in the lives of humans. What and who exists above and beyond us?

how can someone be so sophisticated? If i ever tried writing something like notes from underground it would come off as whiny and melodramatic. I think it was due to his time being in the renaissance that he could articulate what was on his mind. is there any writer like this guy?

I came to this realization very recently.

I'm literally getting withdrawals from not having internet and even dreaming about them, but I know it's for my own good.
I've played games virtually every single day for over twenty years now, and they've ruined many aspects of my life.
Internet pretty much ruined my life. I have no attention span anymore for anything unless I'm drunk.
Apart from that: the internet offers way too much information and sites like this is mostly negativity. It drains energy.

 No.160463

I came to the realization too a couple years back, but I've accepted the fact that you can't really quit the internet forever because the internet has become part of daily life and the internet now molds reality instead of the other way around. Pretty much everyone depends on the internet nowadays. It is rare to find people who do not use it, at least here in America.

You can try to quit, but it would be the equivalent of vowing to never drive a car anymore, even though having a car is a huge plus for transportation. The key here is to limit your internet usage and use that energy for other things that can be helpful, like hobbies.

What's your opinion on serving in the military? I know there's been some military wizards on here before, so I guess I was curious about your experiences if you have had any. Though there's a lot of 3rd world wizards who browse here, I guess this is obviously geared towards experiences in the western militaries. Or we could just have a general /mil/ thread for discussing topics and stuff.

Most of them have "off the street" programs where you can get a guaranteed attempt at their assessment & selection course in your contract (others require you to have served for a few years first, and/or be a certain rank before you can try out). You still have to meet all of the necessary prerequisites & go through all of your initial training/screenings before you get to the selection course. Often times, but not always, assuming you didn't already get it in your contract, you get offered the chance to volunteer to go to selection at some point during your initial training.

Frequently (but not always), the contracts are set up in such a way that if you fail, whatever branch you're in gets to do whatever the fuck they want with you, which generally means getting stuck in a shitscrubber job (this is half the reason these contracts exist, since the overwhelming majority of people are going to fail selection–it's basically an open contract). If you fail, but not by quitting, they'll typically at least put you in infantry (depending on the branch) rather than making you a cook or whatever. If you fall out due to injury, you'll generally get the chance to try again.

Any wizzies here exercise? Whether calisthenics, weightlifting, cardiovascular, or other. Share the reasons why you do/don't exercise, what you do, etc..

I tend to agree with Socrates: “No man has the right to be an amateur in the matter of physical training. It is a shame for a man to grow old without seeing the beauty and strength of which his body is capable.”.

You can but it depends.
If your workload is the same and you have proper protein muscle loss will be minimal unless it is a drastic cut cal.
The only way to 100% avoid muscle loss during a cut is roids though. But like I said if you are doing everything right loss is pretty minor and will quickly come back at maintenance.

This is half true. Eric Helms has some good videos covering it. It depends on what level of fitness you are at. If you're losing weight at about 1.5lbs per week or less and have been lifting for less than 6 months and up to 2 years, you can actually GAIN muscle while losing weight. You also benefit minimally from bulking, eat at maintenance.

The reason why, is that your body isn't in a caloric deficit all of the time. It alternates between caloric surpluses when you recently ate, and deficits when you haven't. During the surplus you gain muscle/fat vice versa.

Basically, unless you want to compete, just lose the weight you want to at a reasonable clip or eat at maintenance. Going through bulks and cuts are more trouble than they're worth. You can end up getting fat or making yourself unnecessarily miserable for minimal gain.

When did I say anything about bulking.
Dude asked about being in a caloric deficit, presumbably as a diet to loose body fat, and that is what I was talking about.
At no point did I bring up bulking as I have never had to do it so I know less about doing it properly. It isn't relevant to the hobbies I have/had while knowing how to properly cut while maintaining performance is.

We're talking about weed here, I know sellers who've been caught with more then a pound (in ounce bags divided up even) and slapped with probation. It's more or less legal in the United States, the rewards greatly outweigh the risks. It's decriminalized in the majority of the states here; the absolute worst case scenario legally would be 6 months for distributing and selling. I'm willing to risk 6 months of freedom to make $5000/month, easily. Every month I do this I'm saving myself 625 hours of labour that a wageslave would do. I own a home now, have a vehicle and have money set aside through family in case anything goes awry. I have zero intention to work and this is how you escape neetdom when you have no one else to rely on and the government won't give you disability; although I'm still trying to get on disability myself.

people over 20, how do you still manage to enjoy imageboards when more than 90% of the population is obviously underage or just slightly above the threshold? do you even realize that you're trying to have a discourse about life with people who never had to deal with anything more complicated than math homework? are there actually any people here over 20 who enjoy staying here because you can relate to what is being said here and other wizards and not because it's just habit for you and you feel like you have nowhere else to go?

It's not just imageboards. Everything is just going to get worse and worse. The one saving grace of imageboards is the fact that you are still anonymous. Even with new demographics, there are still those like myself (25+) on image boards because there's nothing else for people like us online. Sometimes, you can find some decent threads from time to time.Otherwise, the only reason I even use imageboards still is because the alternative is significantly worse.

> how do you still manage to enjoy imageboards when more than 90% of the population is obviously underage or just slightly above the threshold?

Move to boards with slightly less preponderance of it. Going from 4pol to 8pol helped, but I'm a fish out of water resorting back to halfchan now that it's down. Fucking MLPOL is more adult by comparison.

I don't anymore. This summer I mostly stopped browsing imageboards. For the most part it's not real.

Take the website crab.crab

Do you really think the person who has posted, over 4000 times, "I want a qt loli catgirl to friendzone me" is really a crab?

No, of course not. It's mostly bored 14 year olds (I hope they're early teens, anyway).

I don't actually because I no longer dwell on the fact I'm a social outcast. To be honest a lot of people here are on the autistic spectrum, severely depressed, or have a physical disability or other mental disorder. Maybe I am some of those things too, but no longer stronger identify with either of those crowds. My 20s were about making incremental improvements to my life by finding out what makes me happy. Only now that I'm hitting my mid 20s am I seeing results of that. In either case it's time consuming and posting on wizchan is often counter productive because people here have a different outlook on like. Maybe that's an age thing, I'm not sure.
