Geniuses and great men were products of their time and circumstance. It feels foolish for Caesar to have wept at a statue of Alexander for accomplishing more at a younger age than he, because Alexander was the son of a martial king who had reformed his country's military and was reigning at the optimal time. Had Alexander been the son of a political dynasty in an empire which restricted at what age you could lead men and a geopolitical situation as Caesar faced, he wouldn't have accomplished what he did at that age.

Schopenhauer and the same applies. What >>17886489 said. There's more men who tried to chase greatness than had it realized.

The real problem is not distractions like internet pornography or video games like some have mentioned. The real problem is that your parents, your grandparents, your community, your society have abandoned you. You see, if you grow up in a Western country today, and probably others too although I can’t speak to those (some Asian countries seem to not be included) you grow up with basically no expectations for you, your life, or how you spend your precious moments. Your parents and everyone around you have completely disregarded the realities of existence and to the extent they are aware of them, they simply tune them out and look in the other direction. A father no longer has a responsibility to put his son to work, to give him a skill, or an education, or a craft, or teach him about the ways of life which aren’t repeated on the television screen. At most, he has a responsibility to simply make sure the son doesn’t die or end up in prison and typically, he doesn’t even feel that responsibility. You live in a society where a vague notion of youth is extended to people even in their 30s and thus, at the age of 18, 22, 25, you’re free to waste your life on whatever mindless bullshit you please and not only will no one denigrate it but they’ll actually encourage it. How many fathers revel in their son going off to college and his tales of chasing pussy, getting blackout drunk, doing drugs, and getting into bar fights, being an embarrassment to the family name? He revels in it as a way to recall nostalgia for youth. His son is “cool” and that’s what really matters right? Even though, in the back of his head he knows that while none of those things in a vacuum undermine life, they do undermine life when they take the place of more substantial experiences in life. How many people here actually got good advice from their parents? How many have parents on their 2nd or 3rd divorce who will still happily give their young son or daughter relationship advice along the (extremely vague) lines of “just worry about your career” such that the child will inevitably look up at 32 with no friends, no partner, no particular endeavors, and maybe not even a career? This is the truth. This world has abandoned you and unlike those of the past, your task is not to struggle existential expectations of society but to actually wander the desert, with no water, and no path to guide you. I was 27 when I realized what I was supposed to do with my life only 10 years too late to start. I spent those 10 years wandering the desert just like the rest of you will. The one shining hope in this is that while you’ve been abandoned, it also means you’re free to do as you wish. People exist so they can save themselves. That has always been the case and always will. The conditions which now give shape to your method of saving has just changed.

You think it’s possible for Anon to write his magnum opus at the age of 29, having spent the last 10 years chasing pixels on a screen? We live in fantasy land. Even these people who “made it” young spent sometimes decades honing their craft. There’s a degree to which talent is just in-born yes but the unfortunate truth is that you have to pay the man in blood and time under tension. It can be contracted, even accelerated, but there is no escaping this. The greats wrote their magnum opus at 24 or 28 or 32 but they started their craft when they were 14 and that’s how it’s always been.

Tfw almost 30, just realized I've been wandering the desert also: no relationship, no close friends, and no career, just a series of jobs, although I've made some money and I'm healthy so that's good. That's what you get for living in various counties and burning bridges, no quite commiting to this or not quite committing to that. You think you can reinvent yourself, forge a new identity every year, and then the universe will magically show you a way to make it happen, but it doesn't. It's all a loosely connected series of nonsense that has led to this point. at no point have I felt like I've been in charge either: the wandering life is reactive, not proactive, it's as if you're just being thrown around like a ping pong ball, pulled by this or that passing interest or compelled to act only by fear, cowardice and desperation. You're not in control, not living deliberately

And therein lies the problem. I myself am 27. I’ll be 27 soon. When I wrote that bit above I had in mind not some woe is me unique condition for a few lads here in our predicament but rather I meant to comment on how shockingly common this has become. You spend your teens not even knowing you’re in a desert, your twenties just becoming gradually aware of the desert, and by the time you are both aware of the desert and if you’re lucky, see a way out, it just might be too late. Or at least, it feels too late for me. I can’t speak for you and I won’t speak for other people. I say this with complete sincerity too because I’ve studied older peoples and people in other cultures and I’ve noticed that this does, in fact, exist to a far greater degree today than it used to. One of my favorite authors wrote “loneliness is the price we pay for living in the modern world”. I think that’s a deeply truthful statement and yet it doesn’t go far enough. Being alone is the price we pay for living in the modern world. And the real tragedy of it is, it doesn’t start when you’re an adult. You’re abandoned to yourself and the whirlpool that is today at a very young age. This is also why when you read the biographies of say, your favorite authors, there’s a clear and distinct story arc to their lives, especially their earth lives. Meanwhile we have none. It’s just a hodge podge of incoherent unrelated Acts 1 and 2. Now, you can suppose that it wouldn’t seem this way in retrospect and we have the vantage of looking back and history and only presently at ourselves. You can also argue that it’s because of sampling. Still, it’s something I noticed and I’m just being honest with my observations here.
> people exist to save themselves
I suppose if there’s a silver lining here it’s the absolute freedom that this implies. Save yourself how you please. Your story is yours to make how you see fit, even if you only become aware of its writing by Act 3.

How do I commit to anything when I have a dozen different interests? I'm 25 and am probably past the point of no return when it comes to getting good at something but I want to wait until at least 30 before I start contemplating suicide.

I'd say
With the advent of consumerism, advertising, and social media, there are countless platforms for this illusion of how you're supposed to live, and this talk about getting old. It's all meaningless shit.
>25
>point of no return
Ridiculous bullshit. You're literally in your prime, and will be for at least a decade. 4chan is good for niche interests and hobbies, but it nurtures this echo chamber of defeatism. Grab the good info, and don't let crab mentality get to you.
>commit to anything
>dozen interests
I'm in the same boat. I want to make my own games. I accepted that I'm not perfect, and won't master every skill. I can, however, get enough proficiency to accomplish a set goal.
I just need to stop being a perfectionist and do shit, but I'll need to reduce the number of skills I'd have to obtain. I will pick a main skill, and with discipline, it will be my trump card.
We're young, man. We don't have too much time right now, but we have all the time in the world to get old, and there's nothing bad or scary about that. We will have decades to do shit that makes us happy. Don't look at normie old people. They've given up. I will be a cool 70-year-old fart that cranks it to hentai and makes his own games. I will also be pretty ripped.

Don't worry anon. Not everyone has to be great. It's enough to appreciate life. Though, for what it's worth, many great men have thrived in old age. Here's Milton:

>How soon hath Time, the subtle thief of youth,
> Stolen on his wing my three and twentieth year!
> My hasting days fly on with full career,
> But my late spring no bud or blossom shew'th.
>Perhaps my semblance might deceive the truth,
> That I to manhood am arrived so near,
> And inward ripeness doth much less appear,
> That some more timely-happy spirits indu'th*.
>Yet be it less or more, or soon or slow,
> It shall be still in strictest measure even
> To that same lot, however mean or high,
>Toward which Time leads me, and the will of Heaven.
> All is, if I have grace to use it so,
> As ever in my great Task-master's eye.

I've unironically spent the last decade honing my craft as an almost demagogic polemicist among my peers on 4channel.org and the resulting publications, while nothing to be proud of, have probably reached far more minds and influenced more conversations than anything the contemporaneous Schope or Marx ever did in their twenties.

Thanks anon. This is all stuff that I have told myself but sometimes I need to hear it from another person just to make sure I'm not coping. All I can do is just do things and see where it takes me. If I'm doomed to be a jack of all trades then so be it. Better to live a humble life as what I am than waste everyone's time trying to be something I'm not.

STOP USING COMPUTERS

I come here once a month to shill my patented plan of disconnecting entirely from the internet. Your life will be transformed in ways you can't imagine. Your thoughst become so much deeper, time passes in an entirely different manner, your social anxiety evaporates, etc. etc.

Throw your computer in the trash. Whatever benefit it has to you is far outweighed by the harm it causes you. The time you spend using a computer at work is enough.

to what end? the return is minimal and, more importantly, when you are in your early 20s the amount of money you can save up will be minimal and saving it will reduce your quality of life
why live frugally and scratch together the same amount of money in a year that you will be able to save every month once you have a job?

been reading mass shooter manifestos recently and I really don't see much irrationality or madness in their writing, most seem to be incel loners, bully victims, lots of autists. Virginia Tech guy was studying English and writing violent plays in creative writing class, one of us pretty much. Was reading about some study where (iirc) normies and autists were made to interact with eachother, and afterwards they were asked whether they would want to see the other person again. Autists had no problems with the idea of seeing the normie again, normies on the other hand did not want to interact with the autist again. It's sad how much society hates autists
