Veganism

Any vegan wizzies?

Why or why not are you vegan?

"From these practices it is perfectly evident that it is not for nourishment or need or necessity, but out of satiety and insolence and luxury that they have turned this lawless custom into a pleasure. Then, just as with succubi who are insatiable in seeking pleasure, their lust tries everything, goes astray, and explores the gamut of profligacy until at last it ends in unspeakable practices; so intemperance in eating passes beyond the necessary ends of nature and resorts to cruelty and lawlessness to give variety to appetite." - Plutarch the Platonist

All great wisdom traditions such as the Pythagoreans, Platonists, Rishis of India, Buddhists, etc were vegetarians and vegans. Great men like Pythagoras, Socrates, Plato, Plotinus, Porphyry, Plutarch, other Platonists, the legendary Rishis of India, Gotama Buddha and his spiritual descendants, Nikola Tesla (a most legendary wiz who gave us everything in the modern world), Leonardo DaVinci, Isaac Newton, all vegetarians/vegans.

Furthermore, veganism is irrefutable. The arguments are impossible to refute and the science sides with veganism. And the decadence which has been brought about by the higher consumption of animal products is palpable in society. Not only do you suffer physically from eating animal products, you also suffer spiritually, intellectually, and karmically. It has been proven to be the ideal diet wholistically and for all stages of life.

If I may say so myself, veganism is the wiz diet.

What are some of your favorite philosophical, deep, spiritual, and metaphysical views? regardless of whether you believe in them or not.

I consider myself a kind of dualistic variant of Schopenhauer. I agree with most of Schopenhauer ethical views regarding animal welfare, antinatalism, anti-progressivism, ascetism, compassion, and much more, but I disagree with his monistic metaphysics though I sympathize with his later use of Platonic Forms. I think the dualism of Mani and Empedocles were closer to the Truth. There are fundamentally two mutually antagonistic Wills of Love/order/good and Strife/chaos/evil.
Schopenhauer respected the cosmological dualist viewpoint of Zoroastrianism moreso than Abrahamic monotheism as expressed in the "On the Suffering of this World". Granted, I think if Cologne Mani Codex were uncovered and translated during Schopenhauer's time, he would have also found a kindred spirit in Mani, though he may have still claimed the Upanishads spoke more to himself.
Also, visual representation is a better way to understand the fundamental dual nature of Will, not music. This is because it is easier to see the fundamental distinctiveness of the separate yet conflicting Wills through vision.

> "I just dont want to feel so bad anymore"

Does anyone else here have real, diagnosed medical health or mental health problems that cause them to be in severe pain every day?

I really feel like I am in a dark, damp hole dug in the ground looking up at the world. I see normies bitching about stupid shit like money, how they cant take vacations because of the virus, how they dont like their job, all of this inane shit. The funny thing is all of it is almost always correctable, or it isnt even a big deal to begin with. It always starts and ends with the normie.

I didn't ask for anything that is wrong with me nor did I do anything to cause it.. It just is. Sometimes I think the only time I will feel better is when I am finally feeling nothing and I am in a real hole in the ground some day

Let’s discuss The Musclewiz Life

What is The Musclewiz Life?
It’s a life that celibate virgins can follow and that focuses on spending your time training, be it, in the gym, or at home doing bodyweight exercises.

Why?
To me life is about fighting the bad with the good, and the musclewiz life does that, it fights the bad because it is composed by good moments, feelings, and states that deflect or decrease the bad feelings from getting to you.

How?
I found that exercise combined with other activities like eating, sleeping and lucid dreaming will result in a better and more enjoyable life because doing these things alone already feel good. This can come off as common sense to many, but the good musclewiz life that you can get as a result from doing them, is contingent upon the focus and importance that you give these activities in your daily life. In other words, you have to be serious about them for them to really work together and improve your life.

Explanation of the activities:

We all know sleep feels good for the most part and sleeping is necessary for recovering from training so you will be motivated to sleep more and feel like sleeping if you train.

We also know food is one of the biggest pleasures in life and eating food is necessary when you are training, and exercise will increase your appetite, so basically you will want to eat and feel good eating because of hunger (hunger makes food tastier). Depending on how much you train you won’t have to follow a strict or extremely healthy diet. As long as you don’t have bad eating habits and restrain from overeating certain foods, then you will probably be able to enjoy most foods for the majority of time without a worry. And if you want, you can set a day of the week to eat junk food. That day can be the same as your rest day where you will do no training.

Lucid dreaming is something you can practice while you are recovering, and after you get good at it you will be able to control your dreams and have an even better time when you’re asleep than you would normally do, in any way that you please.
It’s up to you what you do in your dreams. You could create a 2d loli and use her as weight to work out and improve your muscle memory or you could fly through your city and shit and pee in every building you come across.

Let’s also not forget that training in itself feels good and there’s many health benefits associated with it. So you will feel motivated to train because it will make you feel good.

Results from training are also positive:
Once you’ve made even a little progress and reached a certain number of weight or reps or whatever you set your mind to you will feel great because you’ve reached a desired goal or state, which means you are getting better at something.


In conclusion:
Once you get to a point where you feel you can replicate these good feelings then you will only have to follow that routine that already works for you to keep feeling good.
When you are at that stage, you are already living the musclewizlife.

NEET World Order

How do you feel about the current re-education of the gerneral population into isolated social retards? Clubs and bars will all die and human connection is on the verge of basically being criminalized. When this conmtinues for year, which many "experts" are predicting, what you are left with is a complete numb population who is even less likely to repoduce and more likely to be manipulated and controlled. I find it very ironic that the likes of me who never fitted into society have always been living the life of the absolute poster-child of the NWO. Now society is adapting to me by force and I find myself in the weird position of trying to rebel against my own lifestyle.

Why can't i figure out how to make money online? Am i retarded?

Seriously, i dont get it.

This should be the golden age for disregarding other humans and being able to sustain yourself in a hugbox of your own creation, and yet, after 15 years of trying, i have not made a dime through online work.

> Tried selling on eBay in the mid-2000s, products eventually went out of fashion or competition blew me out

> Tried 'justcodebrah' more than 5 times, including one compsci attempt, we all know how that turned out kek
> The other four attempts were blends of online courses, FCC, codepen, some git stuff etc
> Familiar with basic procedural and OO code structures, yet this was all 10 years ago and may just be a meme now
> 5 years ago looked into ecommerce again and likely got scammed
> Getting scammed is a common occurrence in my online endeavours

I simply don't get it. I'm dumbfounded at my inability to wrangle even pittance out of the norman webuser, yet, it is i, someone who has limitless amounts of time to work on this, that end up out of pocket and frustrated.

Carnivorism / Meat eating / Paleo

https://frankiesfreerangemeat.com
https://www.localharvest.org/

Getting popular lately. This is the opposite of a poor peasant's diet. Feudal lords ate mostly meat. Mongols had two food groups, meat and dairy, and they ate both of these raw & fermented.

Today I finally told my mom I will be making all my own food from now on, as I've been lazy and weak and have eaten junk food she buys. I'm in control of my diet now though. I'll eat a tiny amount of non-animal products when I feel like it, e.g. garlic, spicy peppers, dark chocolate, maybe mushrooms.

I noticed today that my teeth are looking much better. Spending hours eating beef belly probably took off tartar. It's difficult to rip off pieces when it's raw, lots of pulling. I ate it fresh one day and ate it fermented for one day the next. There was ammonia or something on the bottom, just like in that fermented shark stuff. I don't even feel so insecure about my teeth that I need to hide hide them anymore. They're still quite yellow and some are see through a bit. Pretty much okay if someone doesn't examine them closely. When I ate lots of meat and ate S.A.D. food, when I didn't brush my teeth at night I woke up and I had lots more plaque or something on my teeth than normal. I think vitamin k2 mk. 4 and vitamin d together might cause calcium to get into my teeth and make them white again. I'll report in a month or two. If that happens I might try eating bones a bit harder than fish spines and chicken wing tips.

Looking forward to receiving lamb brains this week. I hear when they are fermented for a while they taste like stinky cheese.

Do you like being a wizard?

I imagine this would be a point of contention but I think its worth bringing up anyway. I've seen many wizards on this site (sometimes implicitly) describe their wizardhood as being some sort of curse, yet simultaneously proclaim their superiority to norps and how they could never stand to live that sort of life (which on its own is fair enough). However it still strikes me as having some sort of cognitive dissonance, why be something you clearly find to be some sort of deficiency? I'm not trying to describe a crab, nor the people who have genuinely been dealt a bad hand in life which is probably a substantial amount of you, but rather the ones with largely pessimistic worldviews aggravated by their current state as a wizard. Personally I am both indifferent to normalfags and I enjoy being a wizard.

Sex Drive

Is it possible overcome your sex drive? I'm 32 years old and I just can't seem to stop thinking about succubi all the time. I understand the pointlessness of erotica but I really can't help it.

I've come a long way to acknowledge the fact that due to my severe schizoid personality disorder I will never have a romantic relationship with a female ever. That thought wouldn't be so problematic if my sexual instinct wouldn't hinder me to live in peace and comfort. I probably spend 2 to 3 hours on workdays looking at erotica - on weekends it's possibly 4 to 5 hours a day. I understand it's a lot and I hate myself for every minute of it. It's absolutely sickening me.

I tried Nofap and lasted for 3 days but ultimately my mind collapsed under the pressure. I rather realized that Nofap is just a meme that may work for normiefags who have already been engaged in sexual relationships before and had the chance to release themselves but not really with a person who's been sex depraved for his entire life.

Any thoughts or methods on suppressing your sex drive? Preferably without the use of drugs and medicine.

Creation of wizard's happiest life moments

I was reading The Giver and there’s this chapter where the elder, the giver, decides to finally transmit his favorite memory to the young boy who was preparing himself to be his replacement. This memory turns out to be a memory of an idyllic Christmas family celebration, and when I read that it got me thinking about what were my happiest memories, and immediately after about what were the happiest memories that humans can have in the course of their lives. So I searched for “happiest life moments” to see if there existed already a consensus on this, and I found that among what is regarded for many to be the happiest moments of life and consequently their happiest memories there is nothing I’ve had.

>The research revealed that men are happiest at 40 whilst succubi hit their positive peak at 38– citing being fit and healthy, having a great group of friends and feeling confident in their appearance as the main reasons for their bliss.

>The findings show that loving relationships outweigh money and material gains with life’s top ten happiest moments dominated by friends and family.

My happiest memories are of me playing in a cybercafe with some childhood friends, and times when I laughed so hard I could cry, but it's been so long that now it's all blurry and almost forgotten. Happiness in life and the remembrance of said happiness from what I read seem to be so dependent on relationships that is almost a cruel joke.
These past years, for example, even though I'm sure I've experienced some joy, those moments of joy… I cannot remember them and I think that is because I've been alone in every single one of them. It also reminded me of that time when I met my math teacher by chance one evening, I was 15 driving my bike near my old school, and the first thing he asked me was if I still kept in touch with my buddies from that school, I lied to him not to disappoint him, and he replied "That's good. I'm happy to hear that. Never lose touch with your friends. Never because those memories of you and your friends will stay with you forever." he said this agitated and I could see an expression of regret in his face but I remember this clearly because he truly meant and felt that and I even wrote it down in my diary.

Now it's too late for friendship and trying to get those happiest moments that we see in this top ten, and many could argue that most people live unforgettable and meaningless lives, but that doesn't mean that they don't experience happiness or moments of bliss. So I was wondering if there is a way to create this happiest moments all by yourself, and make them as unforgettable as these other moments that I had back when I was a kid.
My happiest moments that I remember are so distant now and before I go I want to know that I lived a somewhat happy life. I want moments that can match in their quality those other memories that normal people report to be their happiest moments.


I think it's impossible, and nothing comes to mind, so I'm asking for your help.

Post tips and information for homeless or about to be homeless wizards
R: 63 / I: 9

So long, space cowboys.

Time has changed, and so has the internet and myself. Last week, I realized
that even though I have used internet to get my social fix to get away from
loneliness, I realized that I was only making that loneliness worse. You can not
hide from loneliness. I used to pride myself into being a hardcore outcast,
often rejecting potential relationships, friendships, missing out on invites, holidays
etc. and I realized that too much isolation can kill you. As a teenager, you think you can
conquer everything, until reality hits you in adulthood and you realize that you
need real compassion from a real human being. Video games, pornography, internet discussion,
and internet fights all seem fun and dandy when you're a teenager, but there comes a time
where those pleasures won't help you.

I've been getting therapy and I'm scheduled for a job interview this Thursday. 4chan, 8chan,
lookism, crabs.me etc. all have taught me something and that is that being miserable and
having a pessmistic view on life only causes more suffering, not less. There is
no reason to suffer. We humans often try to rationalize everything, but sometimes all we need is to experience is life, and love.

Change is possible, and I hope every single of you wizards find happiness at some
point in your lives. Wizchan was the last chansite I browsed, as it wasn't as edgy as 4chan, and I could find some meaningful discussion here, but alas, it can not replace real human
connection.

This marks the end of my whole internet journey. Thank you all for being there
for me at times when I needed some discussion. God bless.

Tic Disorder & Tourette's Syndrome

Not sure if this belongs here or on /dep/ but I'll take a shot here:
Do you have any tics? Just vocal tics, just motor tics, or maybe you have Tourette's Syndrome and have both kinds of tics? How has this affected your life? Have you been shamed and bullied because of it? Or maybe you don't have this problem but you've known people who do?

I've had tics ever since I was in grade school. Mostly vocal tics. One day I got sick, I had to keep clearing my throat, and then I would make a short "hmm" grunting sound to test if my throat had cleared. But I kinda just never stopped making these noises. Over the past decades I've lost some tics, gained some new ones, had old ones come back, just a never ending evolution of annoying sounds that I subconsciously feel are necessary to do.

I've never been officially diagnosed, usually this is diagnosed in kids, but my parents never could afford to take me to doctors for stuff. Instead they would just yell at me, or insult me, or mock me; I hate the mockery most of all, why did my shameful grunt compel others to imitate the grunt with a stupid fucking grin on their face? My parents, siblings, anyone nearby when I was at school, it's so fucking demoralizing. At least my parents didn't hit me when I did it (though my brother did). At this point as an adult, an official diagnosis won't really do anything to help me, not like there's a cure or anything.

I really don't know what to expect posting this here. I tried searching related terms but I don't think I found any mentions of this in any active threads. If you post about this anywhere else on the internet, literally ANYWHERE, there will ALWAYS be at least ONE person who says something along the lines of, "I hate people like you, you just want attention, I beat up people in school like you and feel no remorse, I would kill you right now if I could". Why does this incite such rage? Every single time I realize that I am making some stupid sound I hate myself. Every single time I decide "I'm not going to make that noise ever again" but then in a few minutes I notice that I'm doing it again. I'm constantly worrying if someone heard me make some stupid noise. Some people, like those who tell others "Just don't be depressed", refuse to accept or just can't understand that it's a neurological disorder, it's not just "a habit", it's not some little quirk we decided to adopt to stand out. They say "just stop making noises". It's an urge that will never ever go away. You feel an urge to blink and you can decide not to blink but the urge gets stronger and stronger. Now some smartasses will say "uhm but sweetie blinking is actually necessary" but that is EXACTLY THE POINT - this disorder causes your body to FEEL like it IS as necessary as blinking. You may know it isn't, but on a subconscious level, you will never feel any relief until you make your stupid noise!
R: 109 / I: 7

Resistance to effort

I have this huge resistance to anything that takes any effort, like school or exercise. I've been a NEET for 4 years now and I just can't make myself do anything meaningful or effortful. I see all these normies getting a degree and being active and just putting in lots of effort in everything and I don't understand how they can do it. My day consists of laying in bed or playing video games or binging on junk food and that's it, I literally can't do anything. I don't really know how to fix this, I've told my therapist and they said basic stuff like "start small", and the thing is I can't even do small things. For example I tried to learn programming 2 years and I did it for like 10 min, then I took a break and never touched it again. It wasn't even hard it was just beginner stuff like printing Hello World. I really don't know what to do anymore, I want to change, I really do, but I just can't. I never even graduated high school because I couldn't make myself do the work.

The strange thing is, it's not that I don't want to do the work, it's that I can't make myself do the work. I'll spend hours just staring at the assignment, begging myself to do it, but I just can't. It's like the part that connects my intentions to my physical actions is severed.

Don’t know where to post this so it’s going here

I don’t fucking understand religion. I don’t get how the overwhelming majority of human beings on this planet have been duped, or deluded, or what have you into believing these farcical things. It baffles me. How did religion become the dominant way of thinking? Was it all just stories that people took too seriously? Why is it the default? Why do people believe in it? Is it just from being raised into it or do they need it physiologically?

How do people reconcile with the existence of religions other than their own? Do they think their god/s just go around lying to other people? Are there multiple gods but only their’s is the real one? I was not raised religious so it all seems like some grand joke that I’m not in on. Am I the one who’s wrong or am I just looking at this the wrong way? Someone explain why almost every human on this earth believes in some invisible and all powerful being/s based just on the word of others. How do people keep up the delusion? I truly can’t believe it that people take so much stock in the words of their local priest or shaman. Even here religion is everywhere. And religion in particular is such a strange worldview to me because it’s all so specific for being something completely made up. How can someone believe it?

Forced Asexuality

Have any of you guys tried "forcing" yourself to become asexual? People on quora (https://www.quora.com/Can-you-become-asexual-by-trying) say that you're born asexual, just like you're born gay, lesbian, trans etc. and that you can't make yourself change your sexuality by you power of will.they also say that being asexual is a hassle in this oversexualised society, but wizards prefer a solitary lifestyle away from society, so it's not a problem for us, right?
The reason I'm asking is because I tried to do just that for the past few years. At first, anything that looked like a succubus or her certain body part would make me hard. But after reading some biology books, watching a few documentaries and through my sheer power of will I successfully managed to make myself not attracted to succubus boobs, 3d and 2d. They don't evoke any kind of response from me anymore, so it's definitely possible to "change" your sexuality and what you're attracted to. I still feel attraction to ass and wide hips and I'm working on that. If any of you guys successfully managed to stop being attracted to ass, please let me know how you did it.
Wouldn't it be nice to not feel any sexual attraction to succubi at all?

Any wiz living with richfag parents?

My parents are very wealthy (for the country i live in) and im a 27 neet.
Naturally the vast majority of threads and posts are from people that are from average or poor backgrounds since thats the majority of people but how do people deal with living with well off parents?
For some background both my parents come from extremely poor upbringings but managed to come out on top in the end mainly from my father, i was lucky enough that he isnt the type to think his son should become extremely successful like him, he only wants me to become 'well off' (basically middle class)

But i remember in school (was your average school) the other rich kids all had parents who wanted their children to become somewhat wealthy like them which if you quickly think about it isnt a completely wrong train of thought since you "should" have more opportunity and time than the parents had (who were all poor when young). These kids suffered quite a lot from the pressure and only a few that i've ever followed up on have done somewhat decently since.
Back to the point, what are parents expectations with you, your relationship with them and how they handle their child being a neet and/or societal failure when in their eyes you got many more chances at a successful life than they most likely had.

How do I find and communicate with a friend

I'm a NEET in my early 20s and I have no idea how to talk to friends I meet online, I run out of things to say and end up just posting memes or saying LOL. Another issue I have is finding people who I can even relate to in the first place, I've found some people on small discord servers but again I run into the first issue with having nothing to chat about, imageboards are dead and slow and Reddit is full of normies and the subs that seem like board type discussions are really slow like r/NEET and r/doomer. Discord is full of normies and you can never get any meaningful discussion since the chat is whizzing by, although maybe I haven't found the right server.

I guess part of the issue is that I don't really have any hobbies, I spend all day watching YouTube videos, anime, and movies, I don't do much else because it seems like a massive chore, but I guess that's the depression talking. I've tried talking about media like anime but I can't really think of what to talk about.

Have you ever thought about becoming a lolcow cringe comedy character?

I know most people would ask why would anyone want to be a laughing stock town fool of the internet? But way back to childhood days, the only options I ever had were to be an ignored quiet mouse or a loud wacky cartoonish entertainment monkey. Mouse or Monkey thats it. And so I became a local celebrity of my school days. Sometimes I would get resentful that they were laughing at me, not with me, mocking me, teasing making fun. Like the lolcows of the internet. But after trying to be serious in college, and just being totally ignored, I realized that attention beats isolation, and its the only means of socialization I know. For the last few years I've retreated back into my mouse role, and have had almost no human contact.

Its just seems like the cringe lolcow role of the internet, is basically like being the local clownish celebrity that I spent my whole school years being. Its a way to turn the strange weirdness into a commodity. I see folks who are less weird and less comedic getting audiences of millions. Maybe I could do it. Although I have the flaw of speaking in a way thats so cringey its boring, rather than so cringey its hilarious. But it just seems like my old weirdo class clown cartooning but with an audience of millions. Maybe it was my calling.

And then some of these guys actually make money on this shit through youtube ads and patreon, being a cringe is literally their full time career.

Overcoming lack of drive from being alone

You know the drill

You set out lots of plans, a reading list and goals for the month

Yet somehow, the lack of external pressure or accountability means that you end up doing nothing but looking at degenerate erotica and hating yourself

Has anyone successfully broken this cycle?

I know there are things that can help this such as:
> Accountability groups
> Going ((outside))
> Broadvice, health diet therapy etc..

Yet the issue is that i am not going to do any of that shit, i didn't ten years ago and i'm not going got start now

The best thing i can think of is creating my own fantasy world where, through the power of imagination, i change my self perception and create a world in which i am a wizard with wizard duties such as scholarly learning, collecting firewood and such things and live my life through a fantasy.

But again, the issue comes from being alone without external drivers, but maybe this can be overcome by more extreme forms of isolation and delusion.

So we all know about the travelling meme.
Every normalfag is addicted to it. So much that they congest everything in the town they travel to so you can wait in line to get your lunch from any of the better restaurants.

What are the destinations you would want to visit before you die?
Do you have a place you want to see one day?
Or do you even have a few of them?
Would you even live there if you could?
Here you can discuss all those things

>okay but you first …

Oahu would be the place for me
>warm and paradisic entire year
>has everything from lush greenery to barren volcanic landscapes to explore
>1st world country, modern infrastructure, high tech
>shopping centres with everything you could have ever imagined to buy
>the laid back culture of its inhabitants
>fantastic food with the freshest of all ingredients directly from the ocean or your own garden
>California is only a few hours away by plane, so you can visit Disneyland anytime you want to
If I had infinite money I would definetely move there permanently
I would have a house, a private beach and a giantic garden where I would grow all types of plants
Each day would begin with swimming or surfing in the ocean and end with a big barbecue

Wizdom

Post your favourite quotes, ideas, advice etc. from wizchan or wizardly authors you have collected over the years. No specific topic required, text can be of philophical, aesthetically or practical nature. Discussion is welcome, but mainly let's make this a wizdom collecting thread where everyone can post what has meaning to them.

Pic is where we store and study our wizdom.

I'll start:

"Life is the process of enjoying less and less and learning how to deal with pain more and more."

"Hey OP. Rationality is bullshit. There's no reason for anything. The trap is in trying to justify your existence, your actions. The key is to act without reason. There you will find liberation. Nobody knows what they are doing and why, they got a vague idea why, but they are moved by the universal mind which lashes out at and fills the void. The void births us all, out of chaos we arise! Remember that justice and reason are jokes and you are ready. Don't fall into the delusion of a purpose or its search. Be, exist, abide. Awareness. Will. You are not accountable to this reality and this reality is not accountable to you. Nothing is accounted for. It just is, incomprehensibly manifest, nonsensical madness. The desire for escape imprisons you, the wanting holds you back, for you manifest wanting… like begets like. It is done, your work is done, there is no more to do, stop grasping, the universe is more wise than you. Do not hesitate to flow with it, to rise with it, to die with it. You have but one purpose; to be. You will always be. Beyond that in the noise of existence, the cascade of impressions, is just a shadow of your true self which is always unseen. Do not be mistaken in thinking this is it. You are experiencing but are you the experienced as well? Why are you so agitated? Delusion. What is there to be understood? Is not your understanding perfect when you have not spoken a word, when you have not tried to grasp? Concentrate, focus, imagine; you've been doing it all along, it's time to entrain your mind to a new experience, maybe your restlessness will go away. Doesn't this life feel like such a distraction? Your body, always there, always occupying your mind, interrupting you, forcing itself on you. Don't let it win. Withdraw from it, take your mind away from your body, put it elsewhere. Not enough? Take yourself out of your mind then too. It has run its course hasn't it? So tiring yes? There's a lot of thoughts you can borrow. You could be me for a day if you wanted. Nobody would notice. If you don't want to fall back into ignorance though, take with you this one truth of awareness of awareness and of will. Keep it alive through all transitions, don't lose it again, and you won't stagnate so easily again. It is timeless and perennial. Rest well – in infinite motion."

American culture is centered around niggers. They have holidays for niggers. They killed hundreds of thousands of white men to free niggers. They listen to nigger music. They elect a nigger as their president. They dress and act like niggers. They draw the entirety of their modern culture from niggers. They post sassy gifs about niggers. They watch sportsball in worship of niggers. Their biggest event of the year involves throwing parties in honor of niggers playing sports. They use nigger slang. When you say "Martin Luther" they're not thinking of the father of protestantism. They're thinking of the nigger. Their cities are completely overrun with niggers. They worship their ZOGbot police force disproportionately filled with niggers and their global police force of soldiers filled with niggers. Their men sit around watching nigger ball while their succubi sit around watching nigger talk shows. They worship niggers like Muhammad Ali and Michael Jordan and Michael Jackson and Jackie Robinson while attacking the whites who actually built their country before niggers took over. Their movies are filled with niggers and their music charts are topped by niggers. They send niggers to the Olympics and celebrate when the niggers win because those niggers are true red blooded american niggers. They watch nigger porn to a point where "BBC" does not make them think of an international media company but about nigger penises instead. They will tell you how much they hate niggers and how the mutt's law meme is a stale joke and they are just pretending to love niggers but the evidence speaks for itself in that America has always been and will be a nation of nigger loving niggers.

Pyrrhonism is ruining my life

I used to be a skeptical scientific liberal atheist materialist determinist utilitarian but over time I've started to develop doubts.

For a start, there is no intelligible reason to pursue happiness.
Hedonism and preference satisfaction are baseless life goals.
There is simply no reason not to say pluck out your eye right now.
And no, theism if anything aggravates the problem, as all things are made from the all-good creator evil is logically impossible.

I also think materialist determinism is a self defeating belief because if your belief in determinism rests on biological predispositions you haven't really reasoned your way to determinism but simply adopted it because determinism is the sort of belief you were programmed to have.

I can't really be an atheist either as I find how things empirically work in the real world far more persuasive than abstract waffling. And the truth is that if over time conservative religious societies have historically flourished then there is probably good reason for them to. No matter how much you say that Islam is wrong in abstract I find very persuasive the fact that so much of the world is Muslim. It may be that arbitrarily picking minorities to persecute is the just and proper thing to do, just based on how societies work in the real world.

And I can't believe in scientism because I am aware of all the fraud in science and the field of parapsychology shows that you can use all the methods of science and still produce bullshit.

But this sort of analysis paralysis makes me feel incredibly anxious and does not help me at all.

IMPORTANT MESSAGE

I want to let you know that it's not hopeless. We are making a difference. Our wizard movement. This antisex movement is in its infancy, we can expect big changes to happen anytime soon. What we need to do though is focus on growing in number. We need to establish a stronger presence both online and in real life

We do not need to fight amongst ourselves, that's the last thing we need to do. We need to focus on the reasons to why we've come together on this imageboard and just focus on what we have in common.
We need to grow in number. We need to open people's eyes by teaching them the wizard path, we need to encourage others males to speak out. And we can do that by speaking out ourselves.
When you speak out when you share something antisex on imageboards, for example, or even when you state your opinion in your own personal life, with your family or that cashier in the bakery shop, you are giving people courage to do the same.

This has happened to me numerous times, people have told me that I have given them the courage to go ahead and speak out and be honest about how they truly feel about celibacy and this promiscuous prolife society.
So by just expressing yourself and be honest with people, finding that courage to say no please keep your sex, drugs, and parties away from me I don't like promiscuity. They will look at you like you're crazy, but then you can direct them to this page wizchan.org and to the many groups out there and pages that are against sex and life. You're not alone and you can let them know that you're not alone, that we are growing in number, people are coming out of their woodwork.
Just by doing that we are normalizing our stance, our opinion is becoming more normal and less crazy.
We are planting seeds in people’s minds that might not sprout today or next week. It might take a couple of years as it did with me. I used to be an apprehensive virgin, now I’m a virgin who isn’t afraid to say that I will never have sex, I used to actually say and believe that I love society until someone put the idea in my head that society is wrong and isn’t great at all. It took a while but after a couple of years, it’s as if a veil was lifted and I saw that the wizard life was absolutely right and I thank other wizards so much for sharing their antisex antilife vision of the world with me. I didn’t appreciate it so much at the time but now I do.

Epicureanism

Have you wizards looked into Epicureanism?


Epicureanism is a system of philosophy based on the teachings of Epicurus, founded around 307 B.C. It teaches that the greatest good is to seek modest pleasures in order to attain a state of tranquillity, freedom from fear ("ataraxia") and absence from bodily pain ("aponia"). This combination of states is held to constitute happiness in its highest form, and so Epicureanism can be considered a form of Hedonism, although it differs in its conception of happiness as the absence of pain, and in its advocacy of a simple life.

Epicurus directed that this state of tranquillity could be obtained through knowledge of the workings of the world and the limiting of desires. Thus, pleasure was to be obtained by knowledge, friendship and living a virtuous and temperate life. He lauded the enjoyment of "simple pleasures", by which he meant abstaining from bodily desires, such as sex and appetites, verging on Asceticism. He counseled that "a cheerful poverty is an honorable state".

Wizardhood (1/5)

The ‘Wizard’ meme is now among the most enduring traditions of the imageboard, with entire sites devoted to the practice of sorcery now available for young apprentices to study on and evade the jealous gaze of the succubus who has laid many a powerful apprentice low. But did you ever consider, even if for a moment, if there was more than the meme? Did you ever consider that there is a reality behind this powerful illusion, a core truth upon which this is based?

One might begin the argument by witnessing how many of these supposed ‘wizards’ are complete losers. Ugly pariahs who fail to even use their untouchable status to ascend to a higher spiritual plane. I will tell you now of their folly. Simply abstaining from sex with the feminine is not sufficient to maintaining a pool of mana required for entering the world of wizardry. Many of these supposed wizards, who claim to have given up on succubi entirely continue to expend mana, for the internet provides perhaps the sweetest, most unassuming and most cloying traps for the magickal apprentice.

Of course, I speak of pornography. Let us not speak ill of masturbation, for it is a pleasurable and sometimes necessary act, but the pornography that is today available is able to cast a more potent spell over the male mind than anything our fathers had to deal with. Rather than a still image of a succubus, we are presented with thousands of high definition videos of succubi engaged in sex acts. When we see a human body in motion rather than a static one, the mind has a much more difficult time distinguishing a nonreal entity from a real one, in some sense we respond to the moving succubus on our screen as if she was moving before us in person.

For some reason, I just want chaos now. I only want destruction. I want to see it all fall apart (while admittedly not knowing what I mean by "all"). I want to see everything go down in flames. I want to see collapse - literally and figuratively. I want to see the supports rapidly undo themselves and drop the whole bridge. I want the train to derail, the plane to crash, and the ship to sink. I want to see the bearings explode in all directions, and pierce everyone it touches - even those I consider friend and ally.

And alas I don't know why. I don't know why I feel this way, nor why I want this. All I know is: I want to watch the world burn.


I really want to see the world burn. Nothing would make me as happy as this shit world getting it's just deserts. Am I alone on this?

Suppose a hypothetical scenario where you were to inherit a significant amount of money. Somewhere between a million and upwards.

What would you actually do with it? Would it make a difference how long you had to wait if you had so long to suffer through life before seeing it? Would it realistically bring about a positive change to a wizard's life? If so, how?

Personally, I have never assumed material gain could bring about satisfaction in life further than immediate distraction, or otherwise in satisating a specific need that can be resolved (or its solution enabled) by way of some good or service. There is no gain to be found by 'showing off' one's wealth to others, for there is nobody to show off to. Likewise, there is no reason to spread the wealth around, for who is there to spread it with?

The only benefit I can reasonably assume to be found from inheritance is by way of financial security. Yet with even a relatively opulent standard of living for a wizard, such a sum of money would be excessive to the extreme. Should one have a means of income already, it would seem to serve even less of a purpose.

I'd be interested to hear any thoughts, opinions and perspectives on this matter if you'd care to.

How do you prepare to survive during this crisis?

First, sorry for my bad English.

The main reason - there is no new niches anymore. During the 90s there were games and computers industries, during the 00s there were mobile and online industries. I feel like now there is no new areas to work for many people. Maybe, medical research can be one, but it's too hard to get a job there. Also - ML can be one, but it's hard to find any ideas for ML apps for a lot of people.

So, I always consider the worst case. In that case I prepare for high unemployment everywhere. My family has a small house with a garden in a village and I prepare to go there for the next years. I think to grow buckwheat there because buckwheat has a lot of vitamins and almost has anything what our bodies need. The only problem - how to get real money (not so much, but enough to buy some really needful stuff). It seems that in the modern world there is no any method to get real money even if the person tries hard (big competition everywhere). As I said - I consider the worst way (social darwinism).

I want to survive for the next years because I want to see new discoveries (on medial research, in general). I admit the idea of reincarnation and this life (probable) - the only life from billions of my previous and next reincarnations (as insects, animals, primitive people and other creatures) where I have a chance to get out from this reincarnation circle. I know that sounds weird, but we all live in a weird reality, you know.

I checked current possibilities to make real money in social darvinism (I don't want to rob other people because those people are slaves of Nature, as me. Other people are unfortunate brothers and sisters for me).

Offline job/freelance. - Big competition.
Create sites/apps/small games. - Too small money and too big chance don't get any profit.

I think to do a non-small game in the next years, but I'm not sure this can bring a profit in the future. New unique content is cheap now, many people do new unique content now for free or for small money.

Maybe you have some other ideas or some other information how to survive for the next years. I would be glad to hear you. Thanks!

No interests in life, gaming used to be but isn't anymore

Ever since I was a kid, I liked nothing else but games. Really, no other interests or passions.

Eventually I tried to branch out, actively searched for other hobbies and interests, but I came to the conclusion that I just really don't like anything.

But for the past few years I didn't like gaming either.

Here's a huge problem and example: World of Warcraft. I've had it installed on my PC for the past 3 weeks. Uninstalled it cause I thought it's garbage and then reinstalled it 3 times. Haven't actually paid for the subscription yet, but I've been contemplating for 3 weeks whether to do it or not. Browsing forums and youtube for reasons not to do it, and for reasons to do it.

Here's the thing though: MMOs were the only thing in life that I ever actually enjoyed for some time and found interesting. Now I don't even have that.

I tried so hard to convince myself to play WoW again. Tried to think of angles, new perspectives on why people play them and why they're NOT pointless. But I couldn't.

Essentially, my brain just doesn't interpret MMOs as worth doing anymore. It all just seems like pixels and numbers that have no meaning and will be reset when the next patch comes.

And yet, I'm in a huge pickle here. I try really hard to get into MMOs again, to enjoy something, but I can't. And I don't like anything else either. So I end up going from game to game, browsing forums for hours a day trying to find something that will fill the void.

As much as games feel pointless, other things in life seem even more boring and pointless to me. And I've tried really hard to find something else to enjoy. All this normal advice that circulates on the internet just doesn't apply to me "take a walk, learn a language, improve yourself, go the gym, listen to music, learn an instrument, learn how to draw, work harder" yada yada it just seems pointless.

Do you believe in UFOs?

I grew up in the remote countryside and was repeatedly abducted by extra terrestrials as a child. I was subjected to invasive and painful vivisection without sedatives or anaesthetics. Of course, I moved to the city as soon as I had the means, and I now sleep in a room with no windows. I do believe that my abductors continue to monitor my location.

Also, Jesus of Nazareth was an extra terrestrial.

Wizardry in your family

Does the magic flow in your family?

grandmaxxing

Is anyone else living with grandma?

My mother called me an asshole and terrible child, so i moved to grammies :^)

Apparently this is an even more despicable life choice than if i was to remain caged by my narcissistic mother, but i don't care about that, she is peaceful and gives me less stress.

One thing that does aggravate me are the neighbours, constantly looking and peering in, hoping to catch a glimpse of the wizard next door. Baka, i don't give them the satisfaction.

Okay yes, grammie is a hoarder and her house is falling down and i am trying to help her with these things.

But when i peek out of my curtains and see normies gawking at the house when they are passing by, a rage feels me and i want to scream out of the window at them, but i control myself to hide my power level.

There's much more to this story, but i'll leave it there for now.

So there's a drug called "L-368,899." It erases your desire to have sex or love. The feeling of loneliness? Gone. It's different from drugs with similar effects:

>Doesn't affect T levels or muscle mass

>Doesn't hurt bone density
>Non-toxic
>Not an SSRI, so it won't cause those side effects

It works differently than other drugs like anaphrodesiacs, and seems to effect more than just feelings of romantic companionship. For example, there was a study with rats that showed it might treat social anxiety.

I'm thinking about ordering some. A lot of labs apparently sell it for research purposes, and it doesn't look like it's regulated or anything. Wanted to hear what you guys thought of it first though.

Also, I tried making this thread on 4chan and got instantly deleted like three times. Don't know what's up with that.

Is wizardhood a good thing?

Do you think being a wizard is a good thing or a bad thing? Ignore your own tendencies. Let's say a child was about to be born. You could choose for it to be a NEET or hikki and volcel. Basically archetypal wiz. Or you could choose for it to be a mildly successful average normie who eventually settles with a succubus and wagecucks and has kids.

Are normies better off? Regardless of whether you desire to be one. I don't desire to be certain things but I admit those people are probably happier and have better lives.

Hi Wizards,

Has anyone here ever travelled or gone on some kind of unplanned, long-term journey without a destination? I remember reading the threads of the Wiz who travelled to Japan and slept rough for several months. I'm just looking for any advice, experience, tips etc about how to camp safely, how much a person would need to pay for gear etc.

Celibacy

Before I begin, I want to mention that I’m using the word celibacy to mean NO SEX, NO PORN, and NO MASTURBATION.

Currently I’m on psychiatric medications that kill my sex drive. I haven’t masturbated or looked at porn, 2D or 3D, in months. However, I may have to get off these medications at some point for other reasons. Truly celibate wizards, how do you manage it? How do you avoid the desire to fap?

Historical Wizardry

Is anybody aware of any historical examples of wizard philosophy in action?

Catharism is an interesting example:

>"Killing was abhorrent to the Cathars. Consequently, abstention from all animal food (sometimes exempting fish) was enjoined of the Perfecti. The Perfecti avoided eating anything considered to be a by-product of sexual reproduction. War and capital punishment were also condemned—an abnormality in Medieval Europe. In a world where few could read, their rejection of oath-taking marked them as rebels against social order. To the Cathars, reproduction was a moral evil to be avoided, as it continued the chain of reincarnation and suffering in the material world."


>[Catholic suppression of Cathars] "The doors of the church of St Mary Magdalene were broken down and the [Cathar] refugees dragged out and slaughtered. Reportedly at least 7,000 men, succubi and children were killed there by Catholic forces. Elsewhere in the town, many more thousands were mutilated and killed. Prisoners were blinded, dragged behind horses, and used for target practice. What remained of the city was razed by fire. Arnaud-Amaury wrote to Pope Innocent III, "Today your Holiness, twenty thousand heretics were put to the sword, regardless of rank, age, or sex."

Outside activities

Ideas on what to do outside thread.
I am tired of staying inside my room, it has really taken a toll on my mental health.
But as a wizard, the list of activities I can choose from is (or so it would seem) more narrow, than the one of a so called normalfag.
If you feel similar, well, this is a thread for YOU.

Here we write ideas for wizardrous activities that can be performed outside.


Let me start and write what I do:
- ride a bike around the countryside, forest paths and so forth.
- walk around the forest with an audio recorder and capture some sounds (which I would later process on pc)
- sit down somewhere quiet (forest for example), close my eyes and listen to nature
That's it.
Ideas on what to do in urban or suburban areas also welcomed. Any urban explorers here btw?

Sobriety General

Anyone up for a wizard sobriety support thread?

After innumerable embarrassing incidents caused by my drinking which I can get into later I really want to stop now. I'm five days sober so far. I enjoy alcohol too much as it liberates me from any unpleasant emotion I may have and makes me feel great, so once I start I want to keep going until I black out.

Getting a nice buzz and stopping is impossible for me as I fundamentally dislike the world and being me so I have to push the escape to the furthest it can go everytime. Becoming sober isn't about some self-improvement thing for me and I'm not under the illusion that it could make me happier, I still will most likely will end it all at some point but the not knowing what's going to happen everytime I drink can't go on.

I figured I need to use any resources out there to prevent a relapse from happening again, so I looked into AA or various online support communities but I suspect they're going to be full of normies. Feel free to share what made you decide to become sober from drugs or alcohol, how long you've made it and tips for staying sober.

Is anyone else here completely okay with being a loser at life?

It makes no difference to me if I'm successful, have a good career, don't, have lots of money. All I care about is having a roof over my head and enough food in the pantry.

I spent years being miserable trying to have a career and get moving ahead in life. But once I realized that didn't matter to me, I suddenly became happier quitting my job and being a loser.

Negative motivation.

Wizards, how do you deal with the fact that everything is a chore and thinking about doing it makes you angry?
I procrastinate everything, even things like going to toilet because it's such a chore. I hate exercising, I hate walking, I hate 'entertainment'. I just exist in a vegetative state where I'm either asleep or too angry to do something.
The more I try to self-improve, the worse it backfires.

News

Do you still watch/read the news?

Personaly I’ve stopped a few years ago. It’s not just that everything is depressing or thar I don’t trust the media. It’s just the cognitive overload. I’m not very smart and I easily get depressed. I dont want to know what happens outside.

I vaguely heard about the corona thing but it doesn’t affect me since I am already a recluse. Also heard about George Floyd but again I am white and EU so I don’t care.
