Kaczynski is the only relevant thinker of the last 50 years. Anyone dodging the technological question is a coward. What good does theory bring if it ignores the basic values and fundaments of our society?How is knowing how power operates or whether or not equality is something to strive for important when the basis for life - AIR, WATER, WEATHER etc.. and 'social' aspects such as human decency - is at stake? The future is bleak. It's either a full blown environmental cataclysm, nuclear warfare, humans gets replaced by machines, humans get re-engineered to fit in the ever complexifying, ever dehumanizing system… You get the gist.

Or it's all of this. Or it's something completely unpredictable, which is how technology works. We make discoveries, and we spend the next hundreds of years trying to fix the problems caused by whichever new technology appeared.

Technology causes a water drought. So we create more technology to solve it (In reality, no one can plan a discovery. If we're lucky we discover something to buy us a few more years) But then the newer technology causes more problems that requires more technology to solve.

It's a never ending race.
Kaczynski's works don't stop with ISaiF, his other books are incredibly insightful too.

Not only hunter gatherers, but also during feudalism. We don't have time since the industrial revolution actually. I am not defending Kaczynski's point, just being open minded here, the Industrial Revolution was shit, but we can't go back since there is a military technological competition between countries.

Wizards are always despicted with huge beards in media. Anyone here has experience growing one?

I live in a major city that receives a large amount of tourists all year around. These people don't have any shame and will stop anyone on their tracks to ask how to reach some tourist spot. I'd like to evade these encounters and I thought a wiz beard might keep them away.

Problem is that I'm disgusted by filthiness, a beard is another thing to take care of, and since it's so close to the mouth, I'm guessing it gets dirty easily.

idk, all the job interviews I went to the person interviewing me thought I was in highschool, then I tell them I'm 23 with no job history and no school past highschool, usually they interview for 2 minutes or so and they dont even call me in if I send them a resume. I'm convinced people with jobs must be like mega-normal looking/acting or they got something that they're hiding about themselves here, I wouldnt put it past people on chans like this to lie about their past saying they were neet for X many years and managed to get a job when in reality they actually worked a ton and they're basically normal, when I talk to social workers they think I have severe autism but it's just I have severe social anxiety, these job havers must not be afflicted with such things, most likely are pretty normal to normal standards, I dont think a person like me could ever get hired as a security guard, why would they hire a scrawny child when theres plenty of fat intimidating looking guys that probably apply and are even more socially apt than myself

Size 177.96GB. I dare to say contains among the best books of their fields and are supposed not to repeat. It is a extremely well ordered collection by topic, and if you compare the size you soon see its value. Topics range from mathematics, physics, psychology, self improvement, survivalism, the best science fiction and fantasy literature, comics, magazines, and more. Magazines takes about 75 GB and there are many youtube videos, documentaries and conferences so you can exclude these if you want to. All books combined takes about 40 GB or so. But i really recommend downloading other stuff too since you can't really find it somewhere else easily. Did I mention is well sorted and contains only the best books?

It has only one seeder left right now. Used to be many more months ago. Would you kindly share this torrent on places like demonoid, piratebay and other imageboards too? That would be good.

I've been thinking about how I blame my parents for my lot in life. And yet at the same time the normie answer would be "you're a grown adult man, stop being a crying snowflake, and take responsibility for your own life".

Its a weird philosophical conundrum how we are individuals with our own personality, character, free will, and yet we are just robotic products of our parents' nature and nurture.

Usually we focus on the genetic determinism aspect of parents. How we are just robots for their selfish genes. But even if we look at the nurture and environmental side. Who does the nurturing? Who picks the socioeconomic environment for us? You look at the schools you go to, the values you are raised with, the quality of the neighborhood, your religion or lack of it. All choices of the parents. So basically all your environmental factors up to at least your teens and maybe beyond are the choice of your parents.

And yet society doesn't look kindly on a 30 year old man who says he can't function because he got dealt a bad hand from his parents.

To me it seems like life is mostly set in the genes. And to the extent there is an environmental influence at all that was also picked by the parents.

I don't relate to normies who are so loyal to their genes, and feel their purpose in life is to spread them. They don't feel like my property. To me it feels like my genes belong to my parents and I don't want to look out for them. My DNA has brought me nothing but misery. I look on my DNA as the enemy.

But of course there are many examples of children very different from their parents, who reject the values of their parents. Good parents with bad kids and vice versa.

Obviously parents can get very angry at their kids, especially when they are NEETing. And its not like they philosophically reflect "I'm just getting angry at my own nature and nurture"

Blaming your parents is regarded as bad, because it's easy to scapegoat them when you're unwilling to make improvements in your life. It is the same as blaming genes.

I'm not arguing that your upbringing and your genetics are not almost entirely responsible for your current state. They obviously are. However, maintaining the idea that they are entirely to blame puts you in a mindset where you're unwilling to make any improvements on your life, because you believe there is no way out. Your parents may have done some good things and you may have some latent intellectual abilities that just haven't been used to improve your life yet. Somebody with learned helplessness may realize that things could improve if they kept trying.

The main point is to continue strugglibf when it seems as though you are doomed by fate. You aren't necessarily doomed, even if that is how you perceive it.

How would you reset your brain ?
Depressed, tinnitus, eczema, fear of death and obsessions … all appeared fairly at the same time, while a part is for sure due to my genetic predispositions and my poor way of living, I wonder if psychedelics,lucid dreams and such could help me ?

Any thoughts or stories are welcomed, even if it's bro-science, if you have some cool science papers to share or if you think it is useless

Psychedelics are perfect for this in my experience nad others. See this video. It uses the metaphor that the brain is an operating system and psychedelics reboot it. It is accurate in my opinion. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9c8an2XZ3MU

Meditation is also strongly recommended. If you're irrationally afraid of drugs then do that. The hardest part is just committing fully to doing it everyday. Try to schedule it and set a timer for 20 mins. Just focus on your breathing and senses and try to quiet your thoughts

I am somewhat of a germaphobe but it's also coupled with lack of energy and money. So even thought I want to clean everything thoroughly and regularely I find it too exhausting. But I have yet to get sick (knock on wood) except a cold once in a while.

From time to time there are these articles that talk about how covered in germs everything is. For example about how dirty your keyboard is. I only wipe my keyboard like once in a while with a rubber alcohol cloth. I know I should disassemble it and clean each key but that sounds like a huge pain.

Another article talked about how flushing the toilet sprays germs everywhere. I leave my toothbrush uncovered and I only rinse it quickly before brushing. I saw that there are cases with UV light for toothbrushes but I can't just spend $100 on something like this if I don't know it's absolutely necessary.

I started carrying hand sanitizer but a long time before that I would eat a burger and fries without washing my hands and with no issues.

This make me wonder: have I just been lucky or is the immune system stronger than I thought even though I lead a sedentary lifestyle with a bad diet that doesn't strenghen it?

If you're eating decent food and taking vitamins your immune system should be able to fend off most things. You should still take basic precautions like not touching public doorknobs, handles, touch screens, toilet seats. Keep hand sanitizer around.

Immunizations are shit, I always seemed to get sick if I got them.

 No.158908

Not all germs are the same and quantity isn't always the most important factor.
The keyboard may have more in number but the ones in the restroom are usually far more dangerous.

It may well be shit considering I am a two time survivor of Sepsis (only due to getting to the emergency room in time to load me up with life saving IV antibiotics) which is pretty much 100% fatal if not treated immediately ie it is said it can kill a person in as little as 12 hours.

In anycase one of my health care providers has recommended Vitamin C, Zinc and Sellenium pills/supplements for me to hoepfully bolster my immune system and prevent this from happening to me ever again so I hope it works.

lets extract expenses(and be) comfy heroes.
Im making this thread to discuss online-begging from normies trough gofundme or similar online plattforms.
I personally don't advocate lying in the fund but I honestly think begging may do the trick-
for example"im about to become homeless. Please donate so i can go to a housing proyect"
i've seen many selfish and stupid gofundsme receive 50 or 100 dollars.

For legal reasons; I'm not advocating for this, I'm just evaluating a hypothetical:

E-Beggars have it much better if they are left-wing. Despite having great problems with unifying under a single banner due to purity testing, politically active left-wing individuals like to show solidarity to one another. So they will donate to a politically active leftist if they are e-begging.

Right wing people on the other hand (and especially American right-wing people) operate with a "you deserve every bad thing that happens to you" mentality. So a lot of them may refuse to donate a person in need. In my opinion this is kind of ironic because many capitalist thinkers advocate for private charity.

The thing to deduce here is that if someone were to lie about their situation for internet donations, they would probably pose as a minority leftist who is in need of financial support asap simply because that would make more money
