Same as most.

We are not really alive, just intelligent artifacts that are thoroughly complex enough to have an awareness of itself.

This awareness of itself creates the divide between the material and the observer of the material, a mystical matter called subjective experience.

That all races and cultures are not equal.

That different races have different ways of passing on their genes. Some spend a lot of time on a couple of kids while others just spit them out every couple of years and see what sticks. They are winning, too.

The "Holocaust" myth is almost entirely a creature of Soviet propaganda and rumors spread by the British psychological warfare division and the Jewish Telegraph Agency, disseminated over the BBC.

The big bang is the result of super compressed energy exploding once saturation was achieved. Our universe was born and is still contained within the walls of a black hole. Matter and energy is destroyed on entry of a black hole but being created inside a black hole voids any "gravity is too strong" arguments because it is the natural state of existance.

Yeah this one always fucked me up.

I always liked the idea that if it were possible to calculate every variable, then every single action, reaction and consequence could be predicted from now til the end of time. That is of course unless quantum randomness is a real thing and doesn't actually abide by some complex set of rules like the rest of the known universe does.

what if..this is all an alien simulation? This entire existence we each live is part of some alien playing house on a scale we can't imagine because we are ants. We are its toys. What if everytime someone had a panic attack or suffered some "psychosis" it was actually just a glitch in the system, allowing them to see the things that are normally concealed from us. What if dying is the equivalent of dying in a video game? Or dying like a computer would die. Shutting down. Checking off all systems before finally going under. When we wake up on the other side, the world is infinitely larger. Beings exist for an inordinate amount of time. And you realize that you've only just begun.

School give you a culture : Life gives you the opportunities to build a career.

Leaping feet-first as a newbie will make you 99% more attractive than any other student "thinking" about their future in a certain career path.

Whilst you're at college, go out there and experiment life. You'll be there for many years to come, so better learn a thing or two before you're too busy to care for yourself.

A realisation I got recently is that whatever you do, you should be having fun doing it. Even if it's shit. People back in the days were conscripts, they had to go to a war none trully wanted to fight, they had to leave their homes to maybe never come back... Yet there is so many anecdotes about war veterans. I'm not talking of PTSD, but true stories about how your uncle shot a french dude by accident as he was brooming the trench with his machine gun.

They laughed about it, and they knew all too well that, even if they were at war, they couldn't just be at war. They had to live within it, even if it was awful.
Never give up. Even if you're gonna give up, you shouldn't ever give up. Others won't let you down, but they will also never say good bye. Learn this and become the person you have to be.

One big logical flaw with your idea: genetics play a major role in deciding one's personality. Babies have diverse personalities with little to no outside influence. Being predisposed to, say, anxiety, or rage, could very well determine the life you're going to live. If you want to complicate matters even further, sometimes even a single breeze could cause you to change your path (e.g., making you go back inside to get a jacket, causing you to waste time which would've otherwise allowed you to get into a car and get into an accident).

If you're not trolling, you should understand that when you don't know anything about something you can't just make shit up about it and act like it's legit because "no one knows, it could be possible"

The reason why is because if you make shit up, you then make up more shit based on the shit you made up, and before you know it, you have this entire world you've created for yourself based one "what if" and "maybe"

It's nothing more than speculative fiction and that's why people are going to be rude to you about it when you act like it should be taken seriously.

How about the fact that the establishment is literally rigging the current presidential election?
Voter fraud is happening all over the country, and no matter how much the American people complain to the "Board of Elections," nothing is going to change because each and every authoritative figure that could possibly do something about the situation is bought out.

So much political corruption, and we've been taught that the most corrupt countries are in other places.

"I think, therefore I am" doesn't really have anything to do with it. It's intended to be the most basic of true statements you can make in a world where you can't be absolutely sure if anything you experience with your senses is real. It basically states that if you are having thoughts then at least you know you exist. It doesn't prove or disprove his crazy matrix theory though, because technically he could still have thoughts and be real, but live in a completely false reality.

1) Successful long distance space travel will probably end up being impossible - otherwise some other aliens probably would have already found us.

2) As societies become more advanced they become more spoiled, more lazy, less driven, more indignant about bullshit injustice - large swaths of spoiled morons want to save the stupid and lazy of society, mix them in with society, and effectively end up making the society regress into a stupider and lazier society.

Truth. I grew up in a wealthy area so all I really knew were white people, Asian people, and a few white washed black people (who get worshipped in these areas - regardless of how "racist" everyone is there). I grew up thinking black people were normal and capable of being just as intelligent, but that they suffered from racism holding them down.

Major ones:

Girls actually are mostly dumb social climbers, and as moronic as it sounds, if you follow the advice of misogynists, you'll end up having much healthier relationships.

It doesn't matter how long you've known someone, how much you trust them, or how good you think they are. They will betray you if they can get away with it. A lot of times even if they can't.

Psychology isn't a legitimate field of study and neither is sociology. Their methodology is garbage and the people defending it have vested interests in keeping it going. Legislation should never be made based on these things.

Most people are selfish and evil, they only say and do nice things because it's popular to do so.


You can't actually be yourself in this world. Even though this is the advice everyone will give you to be happy. If you actually be yourself, chances are you will be neglecting some socially important aspect of your life and it will end up ruining other aspects of it as well. You will then be forced to make excuses for your choices to avoid cognitive dissonance.

This is just a virtual world and nothing real. You can realize that by things inserted into the simulation soon after thinking of them even when you haven't seen / heard of those things in moths to years and then they're gone like that long again if you don't acknowledge them any further. The purpose of the simulation is to keep us challenged and busy with these needs and this paradox life for unknown reasons. Also these déjà vu experiences with the exact same scenes playing out different from before: Signs of a copy & paste design.

And don't you wonder how we got the Internet in like these few years around the world and yet not so much else has changed ? You'd think there'd be broad changes with this.

Just to distract from the flaws we got a flashback of old problems so that we're busy with that and paying attention to it without further aknowledging the flaws of this false world.

I'd argue that we have no understanding of most of the concepts we take for granted or think we understand.

For example, your mind can't even fathom the concept of 1000. Of anything. Try it... think of 1000 of anything as a whole. You can't. Sure you know what 1000 is. You know it's 500 twice, or 250 multiplied by 4, but mathematics, like many things, is just a system we created to describe concepts we can't actually fully wrap our minds around. Our minds have to rationalize it using what we can understand. We have to break it down into segments so that we can know how many of those segments go into it. Then we break those segments down into even smaller ones until we can get to concepts we actually understand, like 1 or 2.

Almost all of the knowledge we have acquired as a species isn't naturally understandable to us. Sure, we still use these things in our lives just fine, but the point is that we have to come up with systems to describe these things. The concept of infinity is no different.

The universe is a simulation. But you've got a human centric perspective of the whole thing. You mention some things with the brain but, thats focused more on the biology of the brain which is just evolution. The simulation is being done on a much smaller scale, actual spacetime and matter n shit. As to the person of the simulation, I've thought about it quite a bit and maybe theres an answer but I haven't been able to come up with anything decisive yet. Idk what you expect differently from the internet. I know a bit about it and there's nothing particularly odd about the advancing technology, other then the unintuitively exponential progress.

Can't help but agree with this even after being raised not to be racist. I've been working in retail jobs for the past 10 years after being a spoiled middle class brat for my entire childhood. Going from dealing with white people to black people is like dealing with a cat vs dealing with a dog. Sure some of them might act similarly, but in general they are completely different. I grew up looking down on racists because everyone told me to and practically forced me to believe that black people were just as capable as everyone else. Even though growing up and going to school with them, it's pretty obvious that they're not.

>all people who are depressed/suicidal don't challenge are all self-pitying crybabys.

Why do you guys always think the depressed do nothing for themselves?? I go boxing, I go hang out with friends and I go to the Gym regularly and have been dating too. I talk to people almost everyday yet I'm still suicidal.

Why don't u think past the stereotype for once? I have PTSD & Insomnia and I never ever feel sorry for myself and when I find myself doing so I snap out of it. I'm taking therapy and taking pills, but I still find myself pressing my knife vertically against my wrist. I try and fight my suicidal thoughts which is why I'm still alive but each days the depression gets worse and I hurt even more, and I know one day I'm just gonna end it all...

So what have u got to say to that? I'm not someone who doesn't challenge myself or wallows in self-pity 24/7 as you think every depressed person is. I mean, I'm sure some people do do that and I agree they are retarded if they genuinely haven't got anything to complain about or aren't willing to try everything before offing themselves.

Dark matter/energy, the "thing" that comprised roughly 69% of the universe (tentative) is either...

The source of intangibles, such as emotions and values

Potential itself, meaning the pure ability to change

Or

Nothingness, most of our experience is comprised of nothingness

Are you guys really arguing semantics about meat because some retarded dudebro thought it was 3deep that people have a tendency to refer to chicken meat as chicken but not beef as cow? Take a step back from your computers for a second.

That even though a lot of people are as fucked up as me, and I've realized it, the feeling of anxiety and inferiority to those I perceive as normal, popular, or powerful, will never really get any better until I am either so huge I can and will kick anyone's ass, or am so rich that I could tell a playboy bunny knocking on my door to get fucked, neither of which will probably ever occur.

I grew up around real niggers and I have an engineering degree and plenty are smart. Many get caught up in fucked up drug culture because the money is easy and they have no dad to look up to so they look to older dealers and local people with power. It's that simple, plenty of white niggers do the same fucking thing. And I've known quite a few to refer to certain other black people as niggers, only the worst of the worst get that title. But this fucks with me around white pc people like you because I can't speak with any flow or jargon. Really have to white it up.
