Murdering the people of the SF bay area and silicon valley is non-negotiable. They are Nazis, we are free, they are threatening our freedom, and we're going to use the government to murder them. We are going to use political and legislative power to murder them.

People have a primitive moralistic gut reaction to pedophilia. I understand the reason for it, it is an affront to the natural impulse to protect children but people let their instincts rule their emotions.

I learned this from watching these “DAP” (Dad Against Predators) videos on youtube in which two guys pose as underage kids and catfish pedos and then accost them on camera. The two men doing this are clearly driven by a primal moral impulse though they are utterly ignorant of sexual psychology. You can tell by the fact that they are always asking their targets “why are you into kids?” as if they know. Ask the same question to anyone no matter what they are into. Nobody can explain it.

To be sure pedophilia is wrong, but so is pancreatitis. A pedophile is not necessarily a bad person, they are afflicted, a disturbed person, though some can be both sick and bad. The critical distinction between a forgivable and a malignant pedophile comes down to those who are aware they have unwanted pedophilic desires and those who willingly act on them. Is it a choice? Of course it is not. Who would chose to have universally reviled sexual proclivities that seemingly automatically instigate brutal aggression and violence from others, aggression which is in turn often seen as righteous? Sexuality is not a choice under any circumstances and only a fool thinks otherwise. Is hunger a choice?

In fact, research indicates that pedophiles have neurological and even genetic abnormalities that distinguish them from the sexually normative population. Many are also the victims of molestation themselves, which would make demonizing those with pedophilic desire a case of blaming the victim. Is the wiring of the brain or expression of the genes a choice? Morality is fundamentally based on the concept of free will, the idea that one has control of one’s actions, or can at least resist the alien temptation to behave wrongly.

One theory of pedophilia is that pedophiles are essentially “mental children.” Indeed research shows that there is a statistically significant correlation between pedophilia and low IQ, and that they think like children. Arguably they suffer from a form of psychosexual arrested development in which psychologically the person remains at the level of a child but physiologically they develop the sexual drives of an adult.

Pedophilia is a mental illness a defect, a psychosexual dysfunction. It is only a moral failure to the extent that one acts on it and exploits a child.

Just to play devil's advocate: what do you make of the fact that ages of consent and ages at marriage were much lower for most of history? For example, my great-grandmother married at 14, and that sort of arrangement was by no means uncommon in her area at the time. Would you say those who engaged in such relationships were all mentally ill in some way, even though its widespread prevalence is well-documented and it was accepted by most of society until the last century or two?

I think I understand what true romantic love is now. The sister of my best friend. I feel like every decision in my life has led me away from her due to my cowardice. I have one life and I have already fucked it up. I could have died in the fjords of Norway with her if I wasn't such a pathetic conformist. To others I appear strong, but I know I am nothing. With every minute that passes, I get further away from her. I would now have to hurt so many good people, including my wife, just to find my way to her azure eyes.

Her presence is my drug and I relapse every time I see her for those precious few moments. For around five years now I have had this and it is not going away. I fell in love with her on a night when me, her and her brother were out in the fields near their house. Her brother left us alone for whatever reason and we watched the stars together, talking for hours. I can swear that the light of the stars showed me someone I was looking for my entire life that night. This was a two weeks after I told them both I started talking to a girl, now my current wife. What hurts the most of all is that her best friend told me she felt like this towards me as well at one point. I am sure she doesn't anymore.

Today I wrote a page long poetic confession (And yes it is as "gay" as the above) as I have just come back from a weekend over at theirs this Monday. I was going to post it here without context, but I would rather take it with me to my grave. Maybe one of the fairytales people preach of is true and I will be with her in paradise. I will give it to her there.

I'm going through something healthy but embarassing. I've been really into this chick for a long, long time. We talked and I was completely dominated by my fantasy-version of her, I was so enamored I could barely sit still. I don't know why that feeling went away, but it did. I don't really think she and I have very much in common at all really, I'm really not sure if I even like her. Right now I am glad that I never put a baby in her. I think I could still like her, maybe some parts of the infatuation were real, but she is not the person I imagined. Embarassing, but good experience.

There is a certain cultural relativity to it, for sure. However, those were technically adolescents being married, they were of reproductive age. You have to also account for the fact that for most of history the human lifespan was much shorter. A 14 year old was already almost halfway through their lifespan. When lifespans are shorter, reproductive norms shift.

Also, prepubescent child marriage was typically a product of politics and inheritances, the child would be married to an adult however they would not engage in sex with the adult until they were of reproductive age.

These children were not being married off because the adult marrying them was sexually attracted to children. They were doing it so they could inherit land or a title or a dowry.

>You have to also account for the fact that for most of history the human lifespan was much shorter. A 14 year old was already almost halfway through their lifespan
You're conflating life expectancy at birth with actual average lifespan minus child mortality cases. People didn't live until not even 30 in the past, even in the middle ages or before, but frequently died as infants or children, which lowered the average life expectancy.
Besides, there are records of people marrying at ages that young even in the 20th century, by which life expectancy far exceeded the average in centuries past. The shift to later ages of marriage didn't become as dominant as it is today until fairly recently in the grand scheme of things.

Did you get that idea from The Last Psychiatrist? He had an article about scam games one time along the lines of, "You should be grateful to con artists since they're letting you know how you appear to others". I think Slate Star Codex also pointed out that women in abusive relationships tend to get abused again in new, separate relationships because something about them just lures those type of guys.

Hell, I'm not denying it. She made the first move on me, so it could easily be true. I hope it's not though, that would be a pain in the ass. I tried to help her through her problems countless times and it just amounted to nothing more than temporary relief, there was nothing I could to genuinely solve her issues.

She even told me stuff like, "Don't use voice chat in video games with other people because there might be a woman there and you might add her and start cheating on me". This sounds like I'm stretching the truth but I swear to god, she told me not to use VC for that reason. I knew the relationship was doomed then but it's still a bummer

No... I got that idea from the process of writing my 1st book. Stepping back from myself, I looked at the problem from an outsider's point of view and it suddenly became very silly.

"oh woe is me I can only have sex and never love, wah wah wah!"

Countless times you'll see the same issue in your life and in other people's lives, they attract what they give off. As soon as my switched my mindset around to what I wanted in a woman, I almost immediately attracted her into my life.

I wouldn't want to start guessing who you are, but I'm going to guess you're not a fully independent, grown adult yet?

Once you get to the point in life where you are a seemingly confident man- someone who can look professional in a button up shirt or bad ass in a tank top- you can begin to attract women who have at least the self-confidence in themselves that they could keep that archetype interested in them.

Symbolism, status, clothing, appearance, blah blah... everything you give off will attract a certain type to you like flies to shit.

You're right about the lack of confidence, I probably radiate that a bit.

But mainly I think the problem is I met her on a chan, and mentally stable women don't go looking for guys on anonymous websites. If you need to use 4chan or something to find new friends, it's because you're pretty weird, and the likelihood of some mental illness is much higher. You need to know what you're getting into.

Regardless, I definitely agree with you. Healthy, young women don't want a guy who is depressed or lost in life, they want a guy confident in himself and his values and his sexuality with a promising career. I think I still have potential to land a fantastic gf, I'm only 22. Even guys in their mid-20s can get girls in their early 20s without a problem, right? It can't be that bad at all. I should really be grateful the experience - be happy I got the first one out of the way, getting some experience without any long term scars.

Not only do I not have a wife, a girlfriend, or any prospective girlfriend to speak of. I hardly have any friends. Well, I have no friends really. I have a brother. I’m living with him right now. But is he really a friend? I had friends in college. We were more like drinking buddies than friends I guess but they were there. After I graduated, they all moved away and I just never really made more. I’m only a few years out from 30 now. What am I supposed to do with this discovery?

Life is tiring now, and has been for a while. The sign of Saturn hangs well over me and I find myself losing faith that the future holds any hope.
Things are, uh, not great in every avenue but my career and lifting gains. Being able to bench bodyweight at 270 is cold satisfaction to feeling like life's already over at 22, or that I have already fucked up beyond my capacity to grow and change as a person, but I guess everyone in their early 20s post-first relationship feels like this for a while.

Spend your 20's and 30's conquering women, challenging yourself, and learn about what makes you tick.

At 43, I have kids, very strong motivation to write, high creativity, mastery in dealing with women, a pain-free healthy body, and a lot of goals and things I look forward to.

At 23, I was a lot more confused and was being pulled in a million directions. Life was more dynamic and a lot more "fun" to explore with new women, new places to live, new cars, new ideas, new... everything. So much to adventure.

Life at 43 is on a much clearer path, and it is much less anxious. There are challenges still, as there should be, but nothing probably as difficult as trying to be young and find your way in 2021.

>You're conflating life expectancy at birth with actual average lifespan minus child mortality cases. People didn't live until not even 30 in the past, even in the middle ages or before, but frequently died as infants or children, which lowered the average life expectancy.
I did conflate it, but your correct just supports my point even further.

>Besides, there are records of people marrying at ages that young even in the 20th century, by which life expectancy far exceeded the average in centuries past. The shift to later ages of marriage didn't become as dominant as it is today until fairly recently in the grand scheme of things.
Tradition can exert a powerful pull, and those traditions, by definition, derive from how things were done in the past. Generally it is considered taboo to have relations with someone who is not of reproductive age.

Culturally, today ephebophilia (adult attraction to teenagers) is often construed as pedophilia, because humans live longer and youths are considered to have a longer "incubation time" before they become adults because people live longer on average.

Such estimates reflected the life expectancy of adult males from the higher ranks of English society in the Middle Ages,3 and were similar to that computed for monks of the Christ Church in Canterbury during the 15th century.4

I shared a very random story in a now deleted thread which had a bunch of anons telling me I was writing cliché unrealistic coomer spy fantasy shit. Another anon or two said it was "houellebecqkino" and that I should write a book. The whole thing was 100% true, which makes me think there might be something to it.

> Being hated by your mother
"About ten years ago, my best friend and roomie asked me if his lawyer brother could move in with us and stay at our place a few days a week, since he was getting work in the city. We have a free room, I was in Law myself, so I said why the fuck not. I had not seen the brother since he had gone to China to do his Law School, but I remembered him as a fairly cool dude, if a bit awkward.
The dude apparently grew into a major fucking asshole. The kind of autist with enough social pull and money not to realize he's an autist and not a gunner lawyer. He had a literal glowie super hot obviously honey pot Russian diplomat girlfriend who was so fucking clearly working him... dude bragged he had already had to get her a fake Canuck birth certificate in order to have her come to canuck diplomatic functions, and himself done the same for a Russian one... (Russian diplomats have huge restrictions on who they can date and where they can go).
Anyways, beside being such a fucking autist, the dude was the worst roommate I've ever seen. A completely non-functional human being when it came to the simplest things in life. Same with the hot russian spy gf. Their cat once shat in their bedsheets and they left it in a bundle laying at the bed's feet for a whole week. The gf clogged the toilet one morning, get flushing to get it through, and when the toilet full of piss and shit overflowed, she just fucking left it there and went to read fashion magazines in the other room until I woke up and started screaming at her.
Anyways, his mother came to our place at some point. The sweetest lady ever, I fucking loved her. My friends always laughed at me because I'd been brining her gifts since I was 10 when I went to my friend's house, because she was legit the nicest woman I've ever know. Anyways, we got on the subject of her older son, the lawyer autist. Her smile immediately went away, she looked at the ground as if ashamed and said "Yeah, he's really not turning out to be how I wanted. I don't know where I went wrong with that one. And his new gf, that fucking demon... I'm sorry you have to endure him, anon, he really doesn't know how to live his life." The only time I've ever heard her say anything mean about anyone, and it was a complete disavowal of her eldest son.
It was shocking, but desu, she was 100% right."

idea for a novel: a lowly janitor who works at a city brothel and also works as a drug runner is tasked with the most valuable shipment of his life, an extremely experimental lost drug allegedly developed by a shadow government to activate MK ULTRA plants and assassinate presidents. He thinks such a drug is ridiculous, especially since he was given so many to distribute and no care was done in its packaging. They just look like every day red pills, and frankly he believes these are just placebos paid for by anonymous schizos. In fact, in a night betting with friends he takes one himself and that's when it starts happening

he develops amnesia and finds he wakes up weeks at a time rather than waking up to the next day. Plot is him realizing he has now been leading a double life and people are trying to kill him. he realizes that his only hope to get answers by talking to the people he delivered to in their altered states, who recognize him from his own altered state

ending is him finding the mysterious Sneed being distributed by Big Corn to cultivate a nation wide sleeper coup when ready. title is "formerly chuck" -- he finds out that he was Sneed the whole time

The thing you're not getting is that the average life expectancy was shit, because the birth mortality rate was shit, if you had a kid, it had a 50/50 chance of dying. If you made it past 2, odds are you'd live to at least 60, and 90 was not uncommon.

i have come to believe that the real power of religion is not necessarily in its logic, but in its capacity to provide experiences for people. The challenging aspect then, is that not all experiences is so easily communicable or can be explained rationally. Over time, this naturally leads us to a situation wherein we have groups of religious individuals who have received positive religious experiences but can't exactly articulate or share why with a religious skeptic

the theology underneath as an attempt to share a coherent logical and metaphysical framework is interesting but generally remains unconvincing to the religiously opposed. if anything the theology appears to be developed after-the-fact to cement spiritual conviction by the religious for the religious

I've been doing this thing where I try to put a positive spin on my negative qualities. Some here may call that coping, but I prefer to call it "reframing." For example, I'm not proud of it but I'm a bit of a slob. Is this because I am an undisciplined, weak person? No. It's because my mind prioritizes metaphysical eternal truths and II care not for transient hylic matters. All my energies go into organizing my mental space.

>Once when I was a small child I was in a supermarket with my mother, sitting in a trolley she was pushing, and I noticed on one of the aisle shelves some watercress potted in plastic. I thought to myself ‘why would anyone want to eat leaves? They come from the ground!’

>Today I view this as one ugly symptom of my complete divorce from the natural world growing up, and my limited intelligence. I knew nothing about the origin of my dear fish fingers, chips, ketchup, pizza, or ice cream, except that these were more exalted and civilised kinds of food than those favoured by insects and tortoises.

>About 15 years later, when I was 19, I volunteered at a farm for 6 weeks. The evening I arrived, various roast dinner components were cooked and I was told to help myself to them from the kitchen. I went in, helped myself to some meat and gravy, and looked around for the vegetables, which were not forthcoming to my vision. I turned around and spotted what I assumed were the vegetables by the sink. I walked over to them and thought ‘these vegetables look rather raw,’ but I piled them onto my plate anyway. I returned to the dining room and ate my meal for several minutes before I realised the vegetables on my plate were unwashed peelings that were meant to be discarded. Atop a piece of tattered kale was a cricket carcass. Whenever I think about it I 'frisson-cringe,' which means I get full body goosebumps and go red.

>Several weeks later I was asked to pick some cabbage from one of the polytunnels on the farm. I had to Google search images of cabbages so I knew what they looked like.

The attractive woman serving me got visibly angry and said with a mixture of contempt and disbelief: 'you want a cappuccino without milk!?'

The guy you're replying to is 110% right. I actually went into my relationship with the same mindset as you, thinking "Well if she's crazy then I'll have a good story to tell". But it doesn't work like that. Mental illness is rarely funny. It's mostly just sadness seeing someone you connect with in a lot of ways ruin everything for themselves because of these weird problems they create in their mind. You may think, "Oh I will help them" but it doesn't work like that. Even if you work them through the issues logically, that won't fix it because they're not running on logic to begin with. They're relying on their emotions which have a massively skewed perspective, which is why they can't identify truth in anyone's words. Basically, being with a girl like this is an exercise in futility trying to change her/hoping that she changes, and eventually giving up when you realize it's impossible.

Don't do it.

I've been watching a lot of videos of suicides. I like to observe how slowly or quickly they pull the trigger and what their skulls and meat looks like spilled out. I am not being fetishistic about it, I am just trying to get more comfortable with the mental image of me dead and what I would particularly look like and how my skull would burst open and stuff. I want to find more where the family discovers them after they kill themselves. It's horrible to listen to their whole worlds violently collapse in a quarter of a second but I just want to desensitize myself to the thought. It's also a rare emotion, the purest and most lurid form of "sadness"? (I don't know what you would call that. Shock? I've been forgetting vocabulary a lot). I just notice that blank stare that my family looks at me with and I want to be able to approximate what it would sound like if they screamed at my maimed head. Then they wouldn't look at me like that anymore. I am not good at picking up emotions or feelings in other people so I need extremes to register things clearly. I don't know. I don't really seem to feel "emotions", or I don't know what emotions they are. It's like a whole new emotion, the lack of all emotions. It's kind of like calling something dry wet. I can't tell how these videos make me feel. They're just kind of dead, and that's it. That's all right I guess. I look at my face in the mirror as if I'm alive, but I really want to see my dumb mouth slightly agape with my slimy brains trickling out. That is a more definitive facial "expression" than anything I am capable of. I am a zombie. I am a grain of rice in a human shell. I am nothing. I don't really exist. The last thing that makes me somewhat feel something are old photos of my parents holding me as a baby. I want whatever that is again but it's cold and distant like old photographs tend to be. Maybe that kind of stuff doesn't matter though. Trigger, wad cutter, back of ear. Neither black or white.

Part time I cope with less gloomy Schopenhauer readings and fulltime with Church. Church people these days are delicate and hard to be open with. Even for someone like me who has salesman and casanova charisma IRL proven by sales and seductions.
I had a lot of Christian autistic friends. Christianity allowed the kind of patient environment to be redundant, explicit and open which is what neuroatypical people need. I myself appreciate it despite not being autistic but gifted in avoiding psychiatric detection with chameleon intent.
The effort to build charisma as a skill is not so much empathy but game theory, autiste. "Empathetic" people are instinctively skilled as gregarious born but the second they are confronted with anyone unlike them they are truly unempathetic, crass and cold. You must increase your gift of gab of IQ. You're in the right place. Understanding others is now a game of rhetoric. Seinfeld is the art of minute distraction. Big Bang Theory is the art of intellectual flex and pomp. This artfulness is lost on the halfwit audience that only has concerns in cheap laughs and simple easy to follow dance like stimuli to rotely be commanded to. Your brain is on overdrive and theirs is barely on. You are magnetized on a subject to gain knowledge of while they desperately want to keep their attention at a surface lull. If you see a dance floor and truly let yourself dance you will be alone save for less than five people. Most will simply rotely follow routine. When you understand this you overcome the normie question and can situate your autism around their black hole. You are light. You are focus and appreciation gone far too gravitated into slow and pedantic. This is the autist stereotype become virtue. You've been disparaged all your life but you need to create the brotherhood of autists for yourself IRL. You're basically here now, fren.

Upon recounting several memories of my early memories, I am amazed to find the number of times I was drawn to or thought of Saturn as a planet in childhood.
On studying old-form Astrology, I learned that my planetary association was with Saturn. Small world, I guess.

I've noticed that fapping in the evening tends to make you retain some water weight overnight, which is not the case when you fap in the morning and then don't fap the rest of the day. It's not much, usually just a pound or two, but it's something distinctive that shows up when I weigh myself in the morning.

I may have had a kid for a few hours when I was 18 but we went to the store and bought a plan b pill. Didn’t even think about how that was basically abortion at the time. 4 years later is really fucks me up knowing that I might have literally killed my firstborn son for $50. Wish I could talk to the girl about it but I think she has a new bf now, besides she was one of those abortion obsessed libtards

there is a mother waterbird and it is with its young one. the young one sticks close to the mother. when it is close it feels safe and at ease. separation is a great distress to it. the mother and the young one are waiting for the father, who is out fishing. they are laying safely on the pond. the mother decides she will teach her young, but she has no words, she has only example. quickly she flies off a few meters, and the two birds are separate. the young one yells in pain, it does not understand, there is no explanation, and quickly it scurries to the mother, who waits for it just there, a few meters off. it reaches her and she lets it rest a second, but then she is off again, and again the young one yells and struggles, pedals and flaps all it can. Its world has been torn from it. And so they go on until the father returns.

The young bird thinks that all it needs in the world is to be close to its mother, but the mother knows that what a bird needs more than anything is to develop its strength. So is it also between man and God. So don't despair.

Do you guys have any embarrassing fantasies? I know most people have had the one where they do some kind of judo move to disarm a mass shooter and they're the hero and all. I had this fantasy once where this school shooter would pull their gun out and they would be about to open fire but I stop them and tell them that they don't want to be a murderer and that their pain is not permanent, among other things like "You were wanted, someone wanted you to be born." and somehow I pull a photo out of my magical pocket that has a picture of them smiling with their parents as a little boy and I try to show them that they are not nothing and they can be loved, and I just hug them tightly. Yeah it's really gay but I hope by sharing this you guys don't feel so embarrassed about thoughts like that.

Hey everyone, I posted this and I want to say that I am feeling better and I do not have access to a gun to commit suicide. I am still kind of blurring in and out of dissociative states but I do not feel in that dark mood anymore.

I don't really get lost in fantasies anymore, but one common theme I've noticed in mine are the recurring theme of myself being in a morally superior position proving my "case" in a very cut-throat, intimidating, or destructive way. In these, I would typically prove everyone else opposing me was wrong/stupid/evil using a combination of verbal and physical violence. This manifested in fantasies about defending myself in court, standing up to evil government bodies, putting ignorant people "in their place", being a martyr, etc. As these fantasies play out in my head, I'm vividly aware of how cringe I'm being, and yet I still let myself get lost in them from time to time because it feels good.

my understanding
atman= the consciousness that is occupied with being conscious of all the phenomena you are aware of.
brahman= the all-consciousness of God

when you manage to dislodge your consciousness from your experiences (ego-death) then you realize that your subconsciousness is actually entirely continuous with the one main-consciousness of God, its just happened into a relationship with a few sense-phenomena. Life is something like God making Himself partially blind in order that He can seek Himself and find Himself.
