Does anyone else look at this board and think that all of it is pseudo-philosophical armchair bullshit? Why is all of the discussion about New Age "theories," ancient (read: outdated) religions, consciousness (read: New Age talk for the outdated concept of the soul), and leftist circlejerking/self-fellatio? Judging by this board I get the impression that all of the intelligent people really DON'T do drugs.

Yeah, I wish I could post something as straightforward like that but I engage in philosophical discussion simply because it's fun and mildly enthusing for me to do when the moment's right, not because I want to try to make a superficial conscious effort to look smart.

sorry I don't even remember this conversation. I'm one of those inebriated faggots lol.

You know I was watching Ed, Edd, n Eddy the other day and I realized something. It's a Capitalist, a Socialist, and a Fool. One day they each eat three lard-burgers
The Fool (Ed) eats his contentedly. The Capitalist (Edd) vomits up a gear to symbolize wasted production to make extra room for the fatty burger. The Socialist (Eddy) nibbles daintily at his burger when he's disturbed by the fact that the three troll girls (feminists) want something in return for their burgers.

The entire show is a political cartoon. I just never knew it. Start with season 1. (only past season 2 is available on Netflix. Go figure government funded everything not wanting to accidentally publish propaganda decrying the state.)

Let's say that the universe is consciously creating itself.

The observer and thing being observed are essentially the same thing, or made from the same cloth; consciousness.
Separation is an illusion.

How was anything created before anything was around to observe it?

You have a finite amount of time to exist. Your soul is a floor joist in the timeless structure called human experience. Your floor joist isn't complete until you die. Whether you're a good floor joist or not, future structures will be built on top anyway, long after your last nail has been hammered. Whether you want to embrace that or be afraid of it is your choice.

Name of the game is serious piss, or rather, a thread for more serious discussions.

A more rational forum, that indulges in rational and useful thought. Opposite to /jenkem/ and all of the like threads on this board, this single thread will be the shining light, like a nugget of gold that has been discovered within a newly birthed shit.

This will be a formal thread, degenerate language like the above is frowned upon; It can be used, but to a limit.

Rational as in unemotional thought, only made impure, or rather enriched, by ones experiences.

Useful as in something that can be practiced is gained. Something that can be used to augment or change our lives for the better.

Philosophy & Social sciences isn't a fitting title, analysis and discussion of the human mind is more fitting.

Does anyone have a topic they would like to begin with? Maybe questions?

I consider social interaction as completely economic in nature. I think the way the economy functions and the way people function with each other, socially, are absolutely the same in process, only what's put in and what's taken out are different. We invest in others the same way we invest our money; in a way that's easiest for us and that generates the most personal gain. The gain isn't in dollars, though. The gain could be happiness, comfort, safety; essentially any good feeling/state. I cannot think of a single social interaction that does not parallel economics or trading, as it seems everyone interacts only with the hope of gaining the most/losing the least.

I mostly agree, though I rarely share this view, as it's often seen as "cynical" or "calculating" or "cold".
I don't know what's cynical in engineering your own happiness and fulfillment though, or what's cold about this vision. I find that considering "the good life" something mystical that can only be achieved by not thinking about it too much a much more despairing view, that leaves you completely stranded and vulnerable to others, when you're lost.

I'd also add that something else you gain from others is learning a new and useful skill, which is incredibly valuable and often gets unrecognized as such.

The thing is, depending on a person and the situation, altruism or egoism can be the preferrable attitude.
It depends on whether in a given situation one feels that the effort, expenditures, and possibly sacrifices one needs to commit are outweighted by the projection of the benefits of other people on oneself or not. If they are, then one chooses the option that is self-centered, if they are not, then one choses to focus on others.

Reciprocity and reputation also factor in. One finds it easier to focus on others if those other people's view of them is going to become more favorable thanks to that (with all the benefits that brings), and if the people who are treated well are expected to return the favor in one way or another.

Of course, we're not factoring in the dimension of deceit here (it'd crash the party, because the whole world runs on bullshit).

I wanted to rebuke OP's post by mentioning that in social interactions, people very often base their decisions and actions on sentiments with little consideration of gains and losses, but then I thought: Don't they do that the same on the market?

"It’s a fact, I mused to myself, that in societies like ours sex truly represents a second system of differentiation, completely independent of money; and as a system of differentiation it functions just as mercilessly. The effects of these two systems are, furthermore, strictly equivalent. Just like unrestrained economic liberalism, and for similar reasons, sexual liberalism produces phenomena of absolute pauperization. Some men make love every day; others five or six times in their life, or never. Some make love with dozens of women, others with none. It’s what’s known as ” the law of the market”. In an economic system where unfair dismissal is prohibited, every person more or less manages to find their place. In a sexual system where adultery is prohibited, every person more or less manages to find their bed mate. In a totally liberal economic system certain people accumulate considerable fortunes; others stagnate in unemployment and misery. In a totally liberal sexual system certain people have a varied and exciting erotic life; others are reduced to masturbation and solitude…………

Love as a kind of innocence and as a capacity for illusion, as an aptitude for epitomizing the whole of the other sex in a single loved being rarely resists a year of sexual immorality, and never two. In reality the successive sexual experiences accumulated during adolescence undermine and rapidly destroy all possibility of projection of an emotional and romantic sort; progressively, and in fact extremely quickly, one becomes as capable of love as an old slag."

How do you identify a sociopath. I feel disconnected from the idea if I have to deal with an actual person. I don't feel like concepts of the mind work on actual people because they are always more complex and don't conform to the label. I'm convinced if i ever met a sociopath I would not even know it even though I know what he definition is. So If I want to deal with the psychology of people around me, how should I go about doing so in practice?

There actually is an experimental way to determine if someone is a sociopath. I don't think it's been used as a diagnostic tool, but it looks like it could.

Basically, put someone in an FMRI and subject them to some stimulus (like a pin prick or rubbing on the arm). Record what the brain looks like when that's happening. THen show them a video of the same thing happening to another person.

In normal people, the same regions in the brain light up faintly. They're empathizing with the person in the video. In psychopaths, they don't.

It suggests there's a basic neurological function not present in sociopaths. THey can't put themselves in someone else's shoes.

None of us is normal. A person having a bad day will also have less (or no) empathy for others. A person under acute or chronic stress will also be unable to empathize as well as someone who feels well about their life. Anxious and depressive disorders could also contribute, there are a million factors. Sociopathy is presented in black and white in this thread, and it is a billion shades of gray. "Normal people" have shades of sociopathy, and sociopaths have degrees of empathy, especially for family members and close friends.

>being able to drive a car, and live without a car, would be "more" than only being able to live without a car, i dont see how driving a car changes your "mode of perception" in a way that destroys other perspectives
Well the phenomenon is much more complex than that. Driving a car, itself, does not quite create a new mode of perception. It rather creates the groundwork so that a new mode of awareness might proliferate. Like I said, it is the lack of awareness that is the real danger. Once the car became a common commodity, it created an entirely new way of life. Life moved away from the farms, from the towns, and into the cities. Not only could product be moved at rapid speed (we have the train to thank for that), but now people could be too. A man didn't have to work near to his home any longer. Cities expanded, and there was new room to grow. The roaring twenties would not have been possible without the demolishing of old sensibilites, established by the new mode of awareness. Now we have TV, radio, most recent of all the internet. We all move faster, disembodied, than ever and our behavior reflects that. Of course it couldn't have an effect on us any longer, but back then of course.

What? Eliza is right, full employment is still a nonzero number. When people switch jobs, they're going to be unemployed for a time. When a business goes under, there's gonna be some unemployment. You need at least some unemployment for flexibility within the economy. Unemployment insurance lessens the human cost.

Long term unemplyment should be practically 0. Also, the 5% is for older methods of measuring unemplyment, which includes discouraged workers, and part time workers looking for full time work. The US BLS U-6 numbers are closest to that.

The market already takes into account future actions. The reason they wait before implementing measures sometimes, is that surprise can often be the only way to actually jolt the market in one direction or another. Alan Greenspan was famous for this tactic.

The part of the person not in communion with God unless that person wills it is the will. God may be transcendent and immanent with all being, including immanence with your being, but the person behind the eyeballs making the decisions is the self, and not God. This is why love is possible at all. Love is chosen by the subject which loves, not puppeted by God. If love were coerced by a puppetmaster, it wouldn't be love. Forgiveness wouldn't be forgiveness, mercy not mercy, justice not justice etc. Which is why being in communion with God requires acting according the will of God, ie loving others. The person who doesn't love their neighbor isn't in communion with God, even if they believe themselves to be.

Yeah I get what you mean. The problem is that the person being awful to their neighbors leads a life that might even make him forget that he has the chance to be with God.
The delusion this book wants to dispel, imho, is that God is never unreachable, no matter what you do.
It also outlines why not acting in accordance to God will lead you to misery, but instead of being a threat like in the Bible, it explains thoroughly and with a simple language why, it shows both paths and where they'd lead, if followed to the end.

That's why I said it's what the bible wished it could be: a book about choice and freedom, instead of a book of forced laws to follow for fear of the whims of an omnipotent psychopath (yes yes I know there are several interpretations of the bible too, including lost texts etc, but this is how they teach it, mostly)

There are laws conserving matter and energy:
matter cannot be created or destroyed, it can only change form
energy cannot be created or destroyed, it can only change form.
It rather escapes me the notion that consciousness can be created or destroyed.
Maybe when we die, our consciousness exists in a different form.
then again, we may be wrong about these laws of conservation.

What would you want to quantify?

Don't worry it does, as I said in the above post, I make no claim for or against the 'reality' of those phenomena, I don't believe nor disbelieve them. To have an open minded discussion it doesn't hurt to consider multiple perspectives at once.

Also I do not think I am mistaken about consciousness and wave form collapse. True, it is the act of observing that causes the change, BUT does it not stand that the act of observation arises from a conscious entity? What can observe that is not conscious?

again, no, you are mistaken. the act of "observation" is merely the interaction between quantum particles and the devices we use to measure them. these particles are made up of tiny, tiny amounts of energy/mass and to detect them involves a device that absorbs some of that energy and/or alters their motions

it is not the presence of a conscious observer that causes wave function collapse
