This place is depressing as fuck, and yes this belongs here and not in /dep, why? Because I said so, I'm no dep, and I'm old enough to be a "wiz" and I've been long enough on this site and on the one before this one, that is now dead, I've been even longer on the net… in a way, it shaped me on who I am now more then I care to admit. 18 posts and 5 image replies omitted.

There is a name for this, for what we do here, I'm too tired to recall, but it's not interaction, it's something else, something to 'fool' interaction, and no, I'm not one of those, yes, unfortunately I'm still human, but no, I don't think interaction is the way to go, I think the way we are going will become the norm in a way in a couple of years, well it already did really, not noticeable enough for the masses to acknowledge, but I think it's pretty clear now, for anyone on the first world or that is hyper connected, yes, this is the norm now, and there is no coming back, why would we even want to? Even if we could go back, why would we? Would we disassemble the work of hundreds of thousands? For what? A misguided ideal of a imagined bygone era?
I don't think so, the people were even conditioned to accept this, not that they needed any encouragement, kek, I'm one to talk… All the work that went into this project would culminate into one single final logical solution. Yes solution.
It all depends on your perspective I guess, I try to no longer give advice's, but only reflect on ideas these days, so again, this is not a judgment or moral judgment, everyone is entitled to choose their poison… so it's a question of your beliefs, what is this happiness that so many of you so much speak of? I never bought the whole concept, but then again, I'm not a good reference, first of all I think, we should define the object of inspection if we are to dive on that, I honestly have no idea what people mean when they refer to "happiness", and no, that is not a language limitation, although I don't use english very often, my language has the same word, and people use it the exact same way, it's almost a perfection translation, as a matter of fact, in all the languages I know, there is such a concept, and I can't even pin point in my own mother language, as more as people talk about it, it all seems like a convention, like there is no actual meaning, for instance you make the distinction between pleasure and happiness in your post and if I'm not mistaken categorizes hedonism as a form of extreme pleasure, so again, what is happiness? A feeling, joy? Continuous joy? Tempered pleasure? Pleasure in achievement? Comfort?
OP can't express his ideas logically or explain anything he's thinking to people that aren't himself. It's like you just express a slew of bullshit that's totally dependent on your past thoughts but fail to list what those thoughts are. I hate people like that tbh. You just look like a rambling fuccboi.
We can argue what is happiness in theory but it's a concrete feeling. I'm pretty sure you felt happy too at some time in your life. To me it just seems like anti-hedonists are making their own life worse on purpose in order to brag about it to others and to get a hollow sense of superiority out of it. Well if that makes you happy, your call. I'd rather try to indulge in all kinds of pleasures before I have to die.>>201057
Buddhism or eastern religions in general were made exactly for weak-nerved individuals like you. Little flowers who are collapsing at the slightest amount of discomfort or ecstasy.

In my youth I would have argued that the existence of individuals such as yourself was a waste of resources, but looking now, with sober eyes… I only really thank the existence of people such as yourself, and how you are mass produced in more and more numbers, you bring me closer and closer to my goal.
See you again in 3 or 4 years weary traveler.
Not mass produced at all. Eastern religions are more popular than ever in the west. Ironically, you are the npc, man. Why are these religions so popular nowadays? Because the west is falling to pieces and it's dying. It's always when a culture is at its last breath when world, pleasure and self-deniers appear and start preaching. They are a sign of decay, just like stoicism and Christianity were the signs of decay in the times of the Roman Empire.
