DrivingDo you have driver's license? What car do you drive? I got my driver's license 2 years ago, it was a terrible struggle to get it during a the Covid-shutdown, but it was one of the best decesions of my life. It really improved my situation and helped a lot with my depression, gave me massive freedom to be able to drive wherever/whenever I wanted to go, without my parents.
Silence (and media in general)Any wizards experimented with extended periods of silence? I'm talking months and months of no music, podcasts, videos, etc.
I need Advice. Should I go for minimum wage?Im at college because of family pressure. Tried software development, failed misserable cause im a brainlet. Now Im on graphic design and animation, but I dont give a shit about it, cause most of the classes are dumb fillers of pure theory (which I hate cause im a brainlet), I just want to work with my hands, not listen to an idiot all day. I didnt went to class today because its so boring, I hoped ritalin would help but it didnt. Now what? Is it okay to be a min wage slave? should I go for it? or should I sacrifice my mental health so I can draw as a job?
Your current opinionsWe have these threads every once in a while. What is your current worldview, philosophy, religion, opinions in general about life, etc? I think I'm not the only one around here who changes his worldviews or modifies them quite often.
IncarcerationAny of my fellow wizards ever been to jail? I've been charged with 2 DWIs in the last two months, no prior criminal history. I will probably be given a sentence of a few weeks or months in county jail unless the judge shows some leniency and sentences me to rehab instead. I have been to jail but not for more than a day at a time. What's an extended stay like? I will be a sheep amongst wolves, I am not violent or confrontational, and this jail is one of the most violent in the whole country. The predominant demographic in here seems to be Hispanic. I am Hispanic as well and speak fluent Spanish, so maybe I can make some buddies in there for protection.
ParentingGiven you have money and the kid isn't an infant and/or you still have a living parent with you would you adopt a kid if you had the ability to do so? Late stage wizardry on your own sounds terrifying. Do you think a wizard can be a good single dad for some orphan for at least a few years till he returns to solitude?
how does a wiz become a neet?been working for a couple years now in manual labor and feel like shit all the time because of it. couldnt care less if i get paid well my health is invaluable compared to work. How can a wiz manage to live without having to work? or at the very least work as little as possible in a job with little to no stress? welfare? office job?
The fear of learning magic is often more difficult then learning magic itselfAnd no this is not only me, I've talked with a lot of magic practitioners and warlocks in the past, this seems to be a recurrent theme that is hard to admit. A lot of us procrastinate copious amounts of times, when most of the time all you have to do is take the spell or craft and start using it… No amount of book procrastinating will ever replace the practical side of magic. I get angry with myself often because of this. Why all of this irrational fear? All you really have to do is to practice magic to get good at magic.(And disregard female (it goes without saying it)).
Are you ashamed of your nationality ?I am a slav from eastern europe so yes i hate being a 'slav', why couldn't i be born in a country with actual achievements like france, america, spain, italy or even korea
I just realized that drinking to get drunk is not worth itIt's a waste of time and money, it doesn't solve or help me with anything, it's a nice buzz, but too short lived.
The dog menaceA lot of wizards will likely get dogs to fight the loneliness. Please do not. Dogs are terrible creatures that regularly maul children. They are also noisy and disease-ridden. "A dog is a man's best friend" is just marketing from yhe pet industry to get you to waste money on an animal that only sees you as a food source.
just something i wanted to saySexually I still get erections ( I don't watch porn btw), I have a libido but I don't care for sex. But romantically… I just feel fine being alone. Like maybe it's all these years being alone made me like this but this is just how I am. I have no romantically interests whatsoever. I feel completely fine with my own company.And I feel like I never see people like me out there at all.
Stress ManagementHow do you guys handle your stress? Every time something new happens in my life and fucks up my routine I end up making costly mistakes such as breaking something expensive or almost getting fired from my job. It's been this way since I was a teenager and I'm in my 30s now. It's annoying because it ends up being a subconscious thing too. All it takes is for one major change to happen and boom, I ultimately fuck something up that I would never even imagine being able to fuck up.
any wizards with schizoid personality disorder?after recently discovering that this disorder existed and just so happened to exactly describe the hell I've been living in. I began to wonder if any other wizards are suffering from this as well.
Wizard internet communitiesI've been using english speaking internet sites since 11 years already, im 29. My main language is spanish, and to navigate english based internet was certainly an advantage. The problem is that i've became disappointed and tired with the english speaking crowd, its really difficult to find communities that are not conditioned by anglo culture, and all the things that encompasses (consumerism, ruthless competitiveness, hollywood-style pretentions, politics, virgin hate, etc).
TruthWe were rejected by society
If you could change anything your life what would it be?I am curious about the things you guys would change in your life if you could. I had a relatively shit start in life. Poverty, family drama. It left me fucked up. and even in my 20's and late teens I just felt old. I am in my 30's now and feel really old lol. I never got to go to college because I never had the time or money. I have just held down a series of low wage jobs. If I could change anything it would be to go to college and get a decent job.

School education and real intelligenceIt's horrible to see how everyone fawns over-educated academics and their titles, thinking education means one is intelligent, mature and wise.I got to know a professor of literature on /lit/ and he was just your basic, entitled, tantruming 4chan poster with little insight on human life beyond his own experience. This opened my eyes.Doctors are the worst. They worship succubi and get all the glory in society, but the hidden truth is that med students are the biggest party animals and worst turbo normies. They enroll in med school to get status money and pussy. That pretty much says all about their character. Smarter people choose math and physics. But not even a degree in physics guarantees you're an actual seeker of truth. I'm actually an ex physics student so please take that into consideration before you think it's clever to mention Dunning-Kruger.
Downloading information into your brainI have a theory. I think it might be possible to put myself in a suggestive/hypnotic state, in a dark room with only a computer screen and headphones on my ears. I play some kind of educational or informational video, and just let it go into my ears without thinking about anything at all.
How to cultivate the energy to fight inertia?I'm a soon to be ex-NEET and I have come to terms that, yes, there are things I want to achieve before dying, there are things I "deem" worth it, places I want to visit, things I want to learn and do.
You are no better than the people you critiziseAmong normal people you have to fit certain criteria to fit in. You have to be outgoing, you have to dress and look a certain way, you have to be happy, etc. Among imageboard loser crowds you have to have been browsing these sites since the beginning, you have to be into and knowledgeable about anime, computers and videogames, you have to use linux, you have to be into obscure media and music, you have to be into breakcore. Of course you don't have to fit all the criteria and what makes someone cool changes slightly from person to person, but you're given a subconscious score based on these things. It's a different social hierarchy, one that attempts to be the opposite of the mainstream one, but it's the same old system. I'm a boring person who browses discord servers and youtube all day on his windows laptop. I use discord, but only talk to 1 person in dms and then make a couple of posts in 2 servers once every couple of days. I'm not knowledgeable about any type of media either. I like anime succubus images, but don't watch much anime. This means I'm a "normalfag" here and a "loser" in the outside world. I wish there was a community that accepted you regardless of what you're like, but that goes against human nature.
Question for my fellow shut-insDo you ever wonder what it will be like to get old, I mean truly old, and never have a lifetime of experiences to look back on and reminisce about? If you end up in some old folks home and some person asks you about your life, what will you have to tell them? Some old childhood stories so dusty and decrepit you can barely remember them? You could talk about what your opinions about the world are, based on what you've read, but when it comes to talking about how you actually impacted the world or influenced it? What will you have to say? What good is having opinions on stuff if it never leads to any sort of actionable outcome?
how strangeI just got myself into a horrible & bizarre situation, and feel like a complete idiot. Looks like being a fucking pushover dipshit finally caught up with me.
Fake it untill you make; will it work wizards?I fucked up, big time, I'm 27 and I have to do all the work I didn't do when I was 18/20, go to college (yes I want to, and it's my best option), college is free where I'm at, I didn't do it way back because I was a dumb, delusional idiot.
Definition of being a wizardWhat's correct definition?
Mental QuarantineI am thinking of entering a mental quarantine in order to curtail the influences of the outside world/society on my mind.
EnlightenmentHere we shall discuss how to severe our attachments to this world and existence. Plus asceticism techniques, how to be enlightened in various ways and how to achieve inner peace. Stoicism, epicureanism and Buddhism or eastern religion experts are welcome, generally everyone whose aim is achieving ataraxia in some way.
Saying Yes to existenceLet's face it, no one here will commit suicide most likely so might as well embrace life with all its bad stuff, illnesses, poverty, horrors, pains, sufferings, humiliations. Can any of you say with 100% confidence that you managed to say Yes to existence? I admit I'm still struggling with it but slowly making progress. This is the only life we have for certain so I'm trying to get used to it. My tolerance for suffering has been going up steadily, I'm training myself mentally. Life is shit but still better than death or non-existence.
Let's talk actual wizardryHas anyone here tried astral projection or similar? I've always been interested but never succeeded in it, I'm still looking for alternative methods that might work.
NPC TheoryWhat if everyone in the world as you know it is merely a soulless vessel which reflects that person from their reality?
Fear of going to jailIve tried stealing some pokemon cards from a newsstand on the street, they called the police on me and for some reason they accused me of attempted robbery, I have to face the process but the fear of ending up in prison has taken away my sleep, have any of us ever had these problems? An apprentice in jail wouldnt last one day
Guntrip on Sexual DesireTension without discharge is only purely unpleasurable when the prospect of satisfaction of the psychological aim is hopeless. To have to go on wanting what one cannot get is painful. Resort is then had to ad hoc tension-relieving devices, which, far from bringing pure pleasure in their train, are usually experienced as disappointingly unsatisfying, because mere decrease of excitation is not what is wanted and in itself gives nothing that can produce a sense of deep satisfaction. On the other hand, the mounting of the tension of desire is itself pleasurable when satisfaction is possible and expected… If tension qua tension were unpleasant in itself and the aim were simply its reduction, then any method of relieving excitation would be as good as any other, i.e. autoeroticism would be as satisfactory as object-love and much more easily come by. In reality the reverse is the case.
is voluntary vs involuntary a LARP either way?the ~involuntary~ virgin "I've absolutely 100% done everything possible to achieve sex at all costs! It's just impossible!"
Small Scale Accomplishments?NEETs are not known for making great strides in the 'real world' or in a material sense, but it's important for us to appreciate the little things. The actions and events we meet on a daily basis are minimized in comparison to others who partake in the world but this doesn't mean that these small happenings mean any less to us. Our hearts and minds have readjusted to fit a smaller scale so now these smaller actions or events can have a greater impact on us than it would on a normal person but the range of emotion amongst all people, normie and wizzie alike, does not change. What are some of your recent small scale accomplishments?
What do you guys think of reddit?Why does 4chan hates reddit so much? Sure 99% of the site is garbage but there's some good stuff in there once in a while (just like 4chan come to think of it). You can't even mention reddit without 5 posters telling you to "go back", it's really annoying.
what do you think of thisI am writing a "guide" for wizards. Basically a guide to make your life as a wizard as much easy and bearable as possible. I wanna leave something wortht of wizardom before offing myself.
Never gonna workI'm 35 and have never worked a day in my life. Nor do I intend to, despite being overly qualified. Spend my whole day playing old vidya and reading manga.
Carnivorism / Meat eating / Paleohttps://frankiesfreerangemeat.com
OF INC*LS AND WIZARDSWhy the hate against inc*ls? Never truly understood why wizchan has a hate policy against inc*ls, why can't we get along? From my point of view wizards are inc*ls, for they don't have any sexual experience just like an inc*l, so why create a fake dichotomy for basically the same thing?
any NEETs from the third world?I'm from a small brazilian town and I'm still a NEET at 32yo, I wonder how uncommon my situation is since most people in poor countries have to work ASAP and can't afford being a NEET.
SchizobullyMany situations where I got bullied came from two factors:
Stagnant brainWhenever I roam the streets I feel some tickling idunnowhat inside me that keeps telling me that I have something clogged in my head I am not living up to. But I do not know if this is real or just a residual filth from that part of me I have been furiously rejecting due to it's resemblance to the cattle world.
monkypox aint shitWe are seeing them repeat the same lies and acts that started the first 'totally real' scamdemic.
Financial survival tacticsSince the economy went to shit and is most likely gonna stay this way for a longer period of time and it's always been hard out here for a NEET, I'm wondering what a NEETs, poorfags and wageslaves financial survival tactics are.
wiz mask = goodWizzies, I have intense social anxiety and going outside makes me highly uncomfortable. I feel exposed, like everyone is looking at me (sometimes people do look at me just part of their own curiosity.) But since the covid pandemic people have been wearing masks everywhere. Since then I have noticed something amazing:
Horses as model of humanity?>The standard feral horse band consists of a stallion with a harem of two to seven mares and their immature offspring. Stallion-and-harem bands occupy a home range, and stallions fight one another, fiercely, for control of mares and territory. After the young males are expelled they form loose associations called "bachelor bands," which lurk at the edges of the home range of an established stallion. Most bachelors are unable to challenge mature stallions or keep mares successfully until they are more than five years old. Within established bands, the mares are arranged in a social hierarchy led by the lead mare, who chooses where the band will go during most of the day and leads it in flight if there is a threat, while the stallion guards the flanks or the rear. Mares are therefore instinctively disposed to accept the dominance of others, whether dominant mares, stallions—or humans.
Hermit PillHow do I go about becoming a hermit? I want to live in a forest far away from everyone. The lockdown in my country has taught me that I am the happiest when isolated. I am aware that survival in nature is no small thing but it beats the shit out of having to be a waggie and being around normies. Also what are some comfy places I can live in without having to worry about taxes, socializing, etc?
PhilosophyAny1 here feels bad about how much time they wasted on philosophy, religions, or generally on seeking the "ultimate truth"? I can't take it seriously anymore. It seems to me like meaningless word-plays, all of it, politics, philosophy, everything. So much shit that doesn't have anything to do with my life, you know what I mean? Should have just read 07th expansion VNs or watched cartoons/movies instead of wasting my time on trying to become an intellectual or wise person.
The earth is a prison trapThe Matrix Reincarnation Soul Trap Theory states that life on earth is inherent suffering, and this suffering is harvested by beings called archons that trick souls into reincarnating on earth through different brainwashing tactics as well as a white light tunnel that lures souls into reincarnating, and wipes their memory., which makes the life experience a person gains mitigated. The white light tunnel is designed to keep souls trapped on earth forever and to make escape impossible.
Uncomfortable with being a "wizard"I'm uncomfortable with adopting the label of "wizard" because I don't want to be a part of a culture created by someone else. I don't want to be the product of someone else's imagination. I dislike people that idly accept the label of "wizard" because these people are generally unthinking in most other aspects of their lives. These are people who would passively accept any ideology that floats within their cognizance. The same people who zealously believe in the religion enforced upon them in their upbringing. I hate the way you all act. I hate the memes. I hate the way you reflect eachother's oratory. You are so dull. You are so empty and without character. If I were to build a culture, it would show you all as strong and intelligent! It wouldn't celebrate weakness and poor choices. What do you all think of my viewpoint? Am I a heretic?
Why do normal people want to have sex/ relationship with the opposite sexI don't understand this mindset, I've never looked at anyone and thought "I want to have sex with that person", neither have I thought that I want to be around some person just because they look attractive. I've always seen "crab" types talking about how they want some certain GF and I am just perplexed as to why? Like they will fawn over some person that they don't even know.
