Renounce the flesh. Temper your desire. Do this and you will know peace.

>> No.12847804

/lit/ is for the discussion of literature, specifically books (fiction & non-fiction), short stories, poetry, creative writing, etc. If you want to discuss history, religion, or the humanities, go to /his/. If you want to discuss politics, go to /pol/. Philosophical discussion can go on either /lit/ or /his/, but those discussions of philosophy that take place on /lit/ should be based around specific philosophical works to which posters can refer.

that is not necessarily true. If I get on the nofap wagon for 4-5 days I get spontaneous boners just by looking at some random chick on the bus which normally wouldn't happen. Also I'm 30 so I'm not that young.

Alters neurochemistry in such a way that it leaves you fatigued and tired. Makes the mind hypersexual. Subjugates the will and places it into a state of heteronomy where you are constantly distracted by whatever the next sexual distraction may be. You only have one shot at life and you are throwing away your agency over it the more you reinforce the sexual urge.

Hume, David. Dislike him. A large sensualist, topsy-curvy and obese. A laggard, a claptrap empiricist and a slapdash ascidian. Some of his books are extraordinarily dense. Nobody takes his constitutional journalism seriously.
A Treatise of Human Nature. His best work, though an brainlet and shameless interpretation of Plato's "Collected Writings".
The History of England . Dislike it intensely.
Four Dissertations. Dislike it intensely. Ghastly gastronomic (should have been called Four Digestions).
