It's been almost 3 years, but I still can't get over my friend's suicide. It's always there in the back of my mind, plaguing all of my thoughts and all of my senses. I had always seen so much of myself in him, no doubt the reason for the terminal gloom and dejectedness and fear that I feel. When I first heard the news of his death, I reflexively wondered, 'why?'. This instinct of mine caught me by surprise, I'd thought I lost it. Now I try to cling to that, 'why?' and whatever reflexes caused me to question his decision, because it means I understand, or at least understood, on some level that living is preferable to death. And I try desperately to elicit and flex those instincts which prompted me to ask, 'why?', but I worry I worry I'm on a trajectory where the answer appears to me as easily as I first begged the question.

Just got in from a first date. It went tremendously. We connect and communicate really well, we had a lot of fun, and she encouraged my publicly acceptable kissing and touching on her. Took her to a nice dinner, bought us a couple hours on a lane at the bowling alley, then I gave her flowers, six red and six pink roses, before holding her hand and kissing her for a few minutes then saying goodnight. Gave her a bag of treats to give to her cat, too. She seemed super into me before and I'm pretty sure I just fucking slayed. Also she's fucking beautiful and incredibly smart and sweet.

Imagine all negative feelings and emotions and worries pushed out of your mind and replaced with a surge of euphoria and relaxation. It can be incredibly powerful.

I HIGHLY recommend shrooms in natural settings. I like to do them with friends as other people help me stay grounded, which if you are going to be tripping in the wild. I’ve also had absolutely insane trips in the dark by myself on mushrooms. I would say I prefer tripping in nature, but I have done and enjoyed truly psychedelic trips in the darkness.

Seriously every person who is mentally stable should try a normal dose of shrooms in the dark to see what the mind is able to conjure into the reality of your perception.

>> No.18818671

What's the "hangover" like? I'm mentally stable, in fact at the best time in my life so far. Slightly concerned about how it might discombobulate me. What if I took 2 weeks off work? I have access to shrooms. What would be a decent set up? Meditation for a few days at least?

>> No.18818692

There isn’t really a hangover. There is an almost afterglow for the next day in my experience. Your mind still trying to process what you saw and experienced. The important thing is to remember that shrooms are extremely safe. You can’t OD, the worst that can happen is a bad trip, and that’s all about avoiding a negative headspace.
I would go for a 3.5g ( dry ) dose of shrooms for the first time. You can always try a large dose later. 3.5g is a snorkeling dose, you’re skimming on the edge and if you want you can put your head down into the water and observe, but you can also just pull yourself out at any time mentally speaking.
I don’t know about two weeks, that seems a bit excessive. Maybe 3 days off. Trip on night 1 and then take two days off to reflect.

Thanks for the input. I'll now throw some shit in: I'm a recently converted Christian. Do you have any expectations for someone like me?

>> No.18818717

Welcome! I was debating on whether or not to bring religion into this. I really think that praying to God prior to tripping will help you prepare your mind. It’s a very comforting thought to realize that everything you’re witnessing and experiencing is a part of Gods creation and it really puts your ego in place and can be almost humbling. You realize that there is truly and unequivocally a different way to perceive the universe. And this is just one example limited by our bodies.

>> No.18818718


>> No.18818736

Thanks, man. I have two or three friends that have experience with shrooms. I'll consult about dosages and see where I go from there. I'm wondering if I should just go it bare in nature. Because I am inclined towards much writing and painting. Perhaps keep those on standby in case I insist. Though the last time I did high dose TCH I wandered in the woods and spoke with God, which is fine.

I'm not ashamed of admitting that I like Dragon Ball (that's literally what I did as a matter of fact). I was just noting that it's not a medium I normally consume (or really even enjoy) to qualify my opinion. It's like admitting you hate classical or don't listen to it before expressing how great of a classical composer you think Mozart is, I just feel compelled to do it.
Absolutely based. I loved the music from Dragon Ball (esp. the theme song). The Dragon Ball series has always had really good music but the '80s style is a special favorite of mine.

It's like being surrounded in memory foam made of love and happiness. The overdose scene in Trainspotting captures the feeling well, when he sinks into the carpet and gets blinkered and is still smiling. Opiates all feel like love, but it physically surrounds you and lifts you like how people normally paint god's love lifting people up or whatever. It's a very nice feeling and for people who haven't felt loved or their body without nagging pain, it's very easy to want to do it every few hours forever.

>You can’t OD, the worst that can happen is a bad trip
Anon is being slightly misleading here because a lot of people puke. What kind of shrooms you're taking will also change the dose and effect, and they're not all equally harsh on the stomach so some of them are easier to keep down long enough to get the full effect. Puking is way more common than a bad trip.

to add to this, I have been trying to masturbate less and handle the horniness through mindfulness on the bodily experience of horniness (I think it's really the mental component of horniness that is difficult to endure, if you focus on the bodily sensation it's not too bad). So I was basically breathing into what it means to be horny for me, and into how I learned how to contextualize the feelings that constitute horniness, how I learned to take them to be horniness.

No one seems to like their diaspora. There are some interesting exceptions.
If a normal person that is born and raised in america to parents born and raised in Mexico in a home that is entirely ethnically hispanic and mexican in culture where only spanish is spoken and the person is entirely fluent as it was the first language they learned was at a social event with Mexicans who where born and raised in Mexico and the American born man said he was Mexican in spanish there would be a lot of awkwardness as the Mexicans would be giving each other looks and looking back the person in silence. Whats interesting is that for example Stipe Miocic(pic related) the former two time UFC heavyweight champion who is also born to immigrant parents who are from Croatia is treated radically different. Stipe was raised in a home enviroment where his home culture and ethnicity was so lacking that Stipe can only speak Croatian on a low level. He is completely and entirely accepted by Croatians as a full Croatian. He is not dismissed as an american even though he is thoroughly anglicized and is for all intents and purposes an anglo man. He knows so little of Croatian culture and so unlike Croatians ethnically that he doesn't even really speak Croatian but still he is entirely and completly accepted.

Another example is Cane Valesquez another former heavyweight champ in the UFC. Cane once again like stipe speaks spanish on a very elementary level you can find videos of him speaking it is very labored very slow he has to think hard about every word he says and once again even though he is more anglo like a white american then hispanic ethnically he is accepted in Mexico as a mexican.

>> No.18824133

This is interesting to me as someone that is much more like the country of origin and very much culturally and ethnically attatched to their parents home country is mocked and dismissed as a larping american or a delusional american but people who know so little of their parents homelands culture and so are uninvolved in their ehtnicity that they can barely speak the language on an elementary level are accepted entirely as if they where born in raised and once left their small town in Mexico or Croatia because of something that had nothing to do with being a member of the nation or ethnicity.

I'm curious there was a Mexican Doctor who made progress in curing HPV that was in the new recently in the small amount of women treated it had cured them of the illness. If this doctor where born in america and like Cain and Stipe had barely any ties to their culture and ethnicity would she have been accepted as a Mexican? Or is she not famous enough to get this distinction?

This distinction between these two types of people is completely bullshit but I dont think this perception and special treatment will change at all in the future. I have some limited tests on this. My parents where born in the Dominican Republic we have gone there on vacations a few time. If I'm speaking spanish not a single person I have ever encountered even noticed I was from America. No matter how long we talked no matter about what we talked about they had no idea I was not born and raised in the country. This is the same regardless of where in the Dominican Republic we went. They just saw me and my family as Dominicans. They would keep assuming as this until I tell them I was born in America but they would have never known otherwise.

It's also pretty obscure, far from A Land Before Time and so on. I just wonder what about it hit me so hard.

We should work on ways to minimize physical pain, while maximizing physical pleasure. Parts of the brain that encourage open-mindedness and playfulness could be stimulated via magnetic stimulation. Sleep-dreaming would be discouraged, so that people stay as grounded in physical reality as possible. Communal bathing would be encouraged, males and females would bathe together. Genetic engineering would primarily be utilized to ensure large, satisfying male genitalia. Females would be encouraged to explore different types of orgasms, and would be rewarded upon finding a new type. The type of female orgasm achieved through having sex with a man, would eventually be considered "old-fashioned", but females would still want to experience this type of orgasm, because it would be like listening to a song that's an old favorite of yours. Nostalgia would be discouraged, in order to keep people looking forward into the future. The only kind of nostalgia that would be allowed, would be the kind that makes females yearn for a nice, fat cock in their pussy. Anal sex, in both genders, and male homosexuality, would be strictly prohibited. People’s biology/metabolism would be genetically engineered so that all they would need to eat is fruit, and they would be provided with a never ending supply of fresh, delicious fruit. People would be encouraged to learn an instrument from an early age, but only certain kinds of instruments would be allowed, such as violin, piano, and the harp. Music theory would be taught from an early age. Singing would be greatly encouraged. Drugs, of any kind, including illicit substances as well as prescription drugs, would be banned.

Premise: Animals are capable of suffering and experience immense negative utility and brutal lives even in optimal natural environments.

Thesis: Non-human animals are incapable of rationally and consciously bettering their own lives on a fundamental level. They mindlessly reproduce and thus doom their descendants to an endless cycle of suffering they cannot escape (in contrast to humans, who are fully capable of recognizing their own suffering and can choose to end it or stay alive at their leisure). Their total (future) suffering massively outweighs their total (future) positive utility.

Conclusion: From a negative utilitarian perspective it is a kind and moral act to put an end to all naturally occuring forms of non-human life that can consciously experience pain as soon as possible. The suffering of that last generation of animals would be inconsequential compared to the total future suffering of animals, especially if a painless form of extinction, like sterilization is chosen.

Why not take the apathetic stance and concour that it may well be best for everything to die but you do not have the judgement to know for sure and it may well be wrong to restrict other humans from procreating because of your ideals. What is it to you? Even if we did have a magic button to kill all life would it not be more humane to instead focus all our efforts on creating some "thing" that will be able to scour the universe after annihilating our planet and kill ever other life which exists?

6 years ago, I was basically your average anonymous. Lazy, overweight, spent all my time on 4chan, jaded, pessimistic, and working a job that I hated. Then I went the classic "the 21 year old self improooooover" route. I lost a lot of weight, I took better care of myself and my home, I set shit in order, I got into reading philosophy, I forced myself to go out more and talk to people, I took the confidoooooncepill, yadda yadda. Aaaand it did nothing. Or at least, not much. I got big memed. I looked much better on the outside, I was healthier, I was more worldly, I had made many new "friends" (read: friendly acquaintances), but really, I was still unsatisfied. No matter all the "improvements", nothing ever felt enough, like there was an actual hole being filled [this is now about 2 years after that period, so 4 years ago]. And that's when it hit me: it's because there's nothing I truly ejoyed doing. These were all steps and tips other people gave me in hopes of filling that void, but really, everyone is different. What brings you joy will not necessarily bring another person joy. Life felt like a wheel of playing out the fantasies of others through "advice", not mine. And I was faced with a question: at what point in my life did I stop being happy with myself? what really changed here? my life, or my attitude towards it? what do I actually want to do? and what is holding me back from doing it? That night, I sat a in tub of cold water and just re-digested my life story for like 2 hours. To keep it short, I came to the conclusion of wanting to fulfil the things I daydreamt about, not others, and stop doing the things I thought would make me happy. I don't want to have a big social circle, it's tiring for me, I'm perfectly happy with only having 2-5 friends. I don't want to bodybuild anymore, been there, done that, and frankly I never got any use for all the athleticism it gave me. I don't want to go to parties or clubs, large social gatherings are taxing for me and I grow tired of them quickly. Instead, I want to learn the bass. I want to get back into swimming. I want to write. I want to get into filmmaking. I want to play a lot of videogames I never got to. I want to try my hand at botany, etc., etc. All of these things I daydreamt about, and I somehow never dedicated any energy towards doing them. I was an idiot, and I got duped into becoming what others meme that I should be. So I started doing all of that :) and it made me so much happier than I ever was. Sometime after that, I met a wonderful lady by pure chance, and we clicked. Skip to modern day, we got married and are expecting a son :) So yeah, that's what happened. Do those things you yourself KNOW will bring you joy, not what others tell you will. Enrich yourself, don't stress overwhether the things you're doing are making you "desirable", fuck all that noise.

I want to do something with my life, I'm thinking about joining a political movement, a nationalist one, but I don't have much to offer yet. I have a need for action, but a certain fear that keeps me away from changing.

>I don't have much to offer yet.
That's a fucked up mindset to have. Everyone just does the thing, while you, on the other hand, are trapped in your negative thoughts. Do your best. That's everything you have to do. What more can anyone want? If people think you're not good enough for them, they can kick you out. It's a free country. You can join a terrorist party, you can built a family. If people say Yes to your barely decent being, they deserve what they get. And if they later throw you out onto the street because of your terrible humourless ricecake personality, you deserve that too. If you can join something: join it. If you can do something: do it. Or atleast try. If people think you are not good enough, they will tell you. And by the way: The picture of Mussolini you posted and the text of your post fit together. That means that you are already smarter than most people out there shopping off-brand Coke. Do you think you would "dilute" the movement or your prospect wife with your grostesque mangled corpse of a body? Movements and prospect wifes are pools of shit. You are the drop of crystal water in a sea of shit. Your are the water, my friend.

Wow what an exciting life. Maybe work on self discovery versus joining a movement to be a pawn for others.

Nations don’t have anything to offer you and you want to throw your carcass on their alter?
Black-tongued cuck is all you are.

That fear you have is an instinctual urge telling you this is a terrible idea.

Quit being a bitch and live your fucking life. Also forget about this bullshit of tradition or anything, think for yourself and change your surroundings based on your experiences. This whole "I want to be part of something" is last man bs. Ideally you overflow to your surroundings, not the other way around.

>> No.18827979

an authentic sense of religion and spiritually can only really be experienced, not described or taught in the traditional sense. Therefore, what would be helpful are instructions for how one can achieve these experiences, rather than passing along the teachings of said experiences. the truth then, is a set of consistent experiences between people, rather than a consistent set of logic and teachings

i've been to catholic masses and i have found in my experience it was predominantly rote memorization of songs, text, and passages from the bible. the churchgoers there seemed to know the rhythm and lyrics of the songs so to speak, but may be radically different (if not entirely absent) in its interpretations or meanings

suffice to say i was not impressed, even though i actually greatly enjoy and generally agree with the Bible

in my experience it's the opposite. texts in many ways have become substitutes for experience -- they say this and that, but not how you would get there on your own. it is very disheartening how "programmable" a lot of organized religion followers and spirituality has been

however on the extreme end, i have met more "out-of-the-box" kind of people so to say, who describe to be utterly fantastic religious and spiritual experiences, but they simply cannot articulate logically or elaborate further other than they experienced such a thing

i imagine there must be an ideal golden balance to this
