Would Like a Review of Some Writing by Anonymous Coward - Tue, 06 May 2014 05:40:19 EST ID:x+LKkpFL No.193355 Ignore Report Reply Quick Reply

I have been doing some philosophical writing lately and I was hoping someone would read it and tell me what they think. I'm a little embarrassed because I'm scared it may be sophomoric, but if so I'd really like someone to point me in a direction to do some reading and hopefully I'll learn something.

Here's a picture I took of Everest on my travels. Thank you -p

Have you ever texted someone and they didn't respond at all? Do you ever text them again or wait for them to respond (they might but wait until a few days later to get back to you).

So I have always had trouble with women in regard to keeping them interested but I made a note to not always respond immediately after or if they do not respond to a text of mine I will wait doubly long to contact them back. Usually after a few days of radio silence I will get back to them and they stop doing the waiting game thing only to get back to me right away this time. That's it I'm not sure if it's a game, or if this person is legitimately busy. I do understand sometimes you can't exactly get back to someone right away and you forget to text them. I've rarely been in a position where I can't take a break away from what I'm doing and get back to someone like if I weren't at work or whatever. So it is only in my understanding that there is some sort of game to it as I have personally seen a change in how women are towards me after ignoring them for awhile. It really makes me despise this way of communication and I see why some people only say to text if you're trying to meet up. I only do this with women that I am interested in, not just anyone.

Anyone have any input or agree with what I'm trying to get at here?

I do realize some people take it seriously but I can't. It's just short messages, if you wanted to have a conversation and I don't respond back within an hour or 2 or till the next day because I'm high well fuck, you should've just called then.
it's kind of over-the-corner way of communication, somehow meant to keep you safe or have control in a potentially fragile situation so you kind of go 'under' your insecurities.
scarcity brings value anyways, just call people

I hate texting, but there is definitely a way to deal with your problem. Don't let it bother you and don't respond super quickly if it is a girl that you are interested in the you are trying to "talk" to, if you know what I mean. The longest I will let a text sit there, unless I forget, is an hour or two before responding. If the person is responding quickly or I'm not doing anything at the moment I will respond quickly and it usually is the same on their end.
If you are worried about them controlling you in the aspect of you're on their time and waiting on their responses. Stop responding or initiating the conversation. That way you can see where they're really at depending on how they react.

I totally know what you mean though. I hate texting and it allows people to deal with their problems or life or others easier. Makes people cowards in my opinion.

But if I need to get shit done or just do not wanna wait, I will still call people.

Watts had an amazing intellect infused with a truly remarkable gift with language. His work is considered to be one of the most important factors of bridging the gap between eastern and western philosophy. His lectures and books are ripe with intuitive spiritual truths that are going to survive far into the future. Also, Bruce Lee was a massive fan of Alan Watts, which I think is pretty cool.

The notion of God as energy should not fall under 'unsupported claim'. We know that the entire universe is one intricate and possibly infinite web of interlocking energy. If we take the term 'God' to mean 'all that is, was and ever will be', then surely we can indeed say that God = energy.

You are all separate yet intrinsically united manifestations of this energy that is all that is, was and ever will be.

I'm not going to deny any truth behind this statement as I can relate personal experiences to this sentiment. However this is still an opinion not qualitative evidence to support a claim we, as mere mortals cannot support with quantitative data and it also remains disputable. I have held conversations with several characters and also reflected with those who seek to overcome the insufferable power of de;ath and live forever in this reality; the reality that they perceive within the ether: This is a hardly a lesser spiritual concept to taking shit loads of psychs and feeling one with the world.

Depending on who you ask, the stereotypes will vary, sometimes hillariously so. As far as I can tell, in most of the former combloc european countries it used to be widespread to imagine the US as a country populated with J.R. Ewing clones, gun-toting Elvis impersonators, and cocaine-fueled stock brokers (ain't hard to guess which products of American culture were the first to gain ground behind the Iron Curtain to be promptly confused with reality). Worh noting that anything that could be even remotely linked to the US was coveted and sought after as a status symbol, even if it served no fucking function. National stereotypes are funny like that.

In loose connection to the topic: American conspiracy theories are the most widespread ones, but are certainly not the most striking. Ever wondered how they'd look like if half of US gubmint top honchos died in a plane crash occuring over the territory belonging to a country you fought with for the larger part of ever, while trying to land in order to be present at a ceremony commemorating aforementioned country's soldier executing half of the government 70 years ago? Wonder no more: http://www.aljazeera.com/indepth/features/2013/04/2013410113411207111.html

Now that's what I call a radical example. Why wonder how it'd be like if most of the US populace believed they'd been gravely deceived and affronted where you can find a country where the scenario had just played out.

How do you become mentally weak? is the reverse-answer to this question. What is "strong" and what is "weak"? What are you actually asking, or is the question just empty? Sometimes we ask empty questions without even realizing it, we attach significance to a certain way of thinking ("strongness", "weakness"), but they are, like, just subjective as hell.

These moral conundrums don't have a lot of weight in this environment. It's generally accepted that nobody can uphold the precepts without flaw, but we try to do our best. For serious offenses there's always repentance.

I still don't understand the point of punitive rape. And drinking but avoiding intoxication is rather normal. Heck, drinking to the point of reckless intoxication isn't that uncommon among historical Zen monks.

The only one on there that I can give a definite answer on is the cheating. To cheat in retaliation is a waste of time and energy.

Not OP. But I am also very interested in Buddhism. Even so, which book by Arthur Schopenhauer would be the best to start with? I was thinking The World As Will and Representation would be a good start. Correct me if I may be wrong... Also, I have been reading a bit of the Upanishads. I'm not sure how well I will learn more of Buddhism from this, but I'll still read them anyway because they're quite interesting to me. Also, I have been practicing meditation for the past few months now.

>nb because not related to the topic
I don't understand why the psychology behind apparent free will isn't on topic. No one ever talks about that. I don't even think there's just one kind of it. There's being pro-active, there's setting goals, there's recognizing opportunities for choices to be made. I'm only listing these things because I stumbled upon them, so I don't know if there's more. Merely BELIEVING you do or do not have the ability to make a choice effects your choices!

>And that's why I mentioned you're asking the wrong people.
Who, besides therapists? I keep looking but I don't know what... I've tried rationalist groups, pagan groups, artists...

>I can tell you have to keep trying if you want to succeed.
I just don't want to be wasting my life away trying in a way that's pretty much guaranteed to fail. Maybe free therapists in Canada are no good. Maybe I'll never make progress as long as I hold some things back, but I can't trust them completely and trying to explain what I'm thinking is exhausting.

>You know, one thing that once allowed me to function rather well was simply forcing myself to stop overthinking shit. Again, it may seem trivial, but you can't spend entire days thinking about philosophical implications of determinism and not thinking about how to solve the most burning issues of your everyday life.
I've heard that, like in meditation, and it's a good idea I'd like to take, but I don't know that it's my biggest problem. Most of the time I'm just wasting time on distractions. Most of the time it feels like I'm not thinking at all. I don't get a lot of opportunity to be introspective.

>One cannot naturally describe something that defies descripiton. In order to describe those (purported) states, one needs to invoke supernatural phenomena.

Sure you can, without evoking supernatural phenomenon. However, you need to create a new vocabulary or use the old in new ways. Many mystical writings do resemble poetry for example. You probably wouldn't take philosophers like Schelling seriously though.

>So: in order to justify the very existence of mystical experiences (much less attempt to "describe" them, one needs to abandon scientific naturalism. Seemingly mystic experiences have naturalistic explanations, which you have to ignore in order to still consider them mystical.

I don't have to justify them. And a naturalistic explanation don't have much to do with it as far as I'm concerned. It would be like a colorblind person reading up on wavelengths and thinking he now knows what color looks like. He knows how light and color works mechanically, but it doesn't say anything about what it looks like. The same is true for a mystic experience.

>Nobody would deny that there are limitations to our language, certainly in our every day use of language
>How does that support mysticism?
It supports that something experienced or envisioned can be real without having the ability to describe it using language. That could have multiple reasons: perhaps our language or mind is not sufficiently advanced or it may simply not be possible at all. Go back 2000 years and try to describe some piece of modern technology. Even though we know it can be done, you'd probably have a very hard time convincing anyone you are talking about something real, simply because the language back then wouldn't be suitable to describe modern technology in a way that makes sense to someone who's never seen such technology. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=rLSgQoUB-rM related

>Firstly, you're assuming his experiences were mystical in their origin, and not a byproduct of his mind that has a naturalistic explanation. Secondly, this does not make (purported) mysticism a part of proper reasoning.
He said so and that by itself is enough for me to say it's a mystic experience, the underlying mechanics don't matter. It's mystic because to him it appeared in a flash of insight (while he was stuck in a cabin) and appeared more real to him then anything thought of before.

Do any philosophers have any works about what it means to be jaded

i've read what the condition of being lifeless or not having liveliness, and heidegarr on ambiguity and why its there as a force or a factor in our experience(forgive me on whatever position heidegarr technically places it in i can't remember)

Is there any philosophical works that express the role of being jaded and how it comes into play and why it does or what it means

Also any more philosophilcal writings on ambiguity, confusion, guilt, and anxiety.

Pic unrelated Goemon is relaxed but seeming to take in life fully the opposite of jaded.

you have to think if it's left open, then i'm open to any.

as you guess by the end of the post, i guess, you can see why with the things i listed, i possibly wouln't want to define and specify. But guess what you didn't really need to articulate specifically why that was, that you thought this it just appeared that way to you.

Don't give me some rigormorole about how i need to do the hokey pokey and pretend its bordering on impossible, when it more seems its not preferable. This is not an issue that should have ever even entered justication mode.

And really you sometimes could venture your idea of what i'm saying if your really not that sure. You can't pretend disqualifying the state of mind and the language that was enquiring is gonna get your response any closer to what was being talked about. Maybe you don't want to talk to a person that spoke like me. So don't. Don't come in here pretending you can't wonder about something broadly.

And also not to put me in a situation where i have to describe why i'm doing something to you, over something like this.

Here's what's obvious, i wanted something about being jaded, and what that meant, what i got was some person with an incredibly jaded response. And i had a feeling that would happen, maybe i should have gone with that, no most likely some asshole, it could be anybody will want me to articulate specifically what that means. that doesn't sound smarter to me it sounds like you think i am engaging you in a pissing contest, and i can't for the life of me convince you its anything else. All i can say is put yourself in the position of looking for something, and then think about what someone saying well tell me exactly where it is found before i can help you look for it.

I didn't ask for something else to ponder i was already and i didn't not forward any ideas about what any of these things were but your still giving me feedback on what my ideas must be on the basis of what i didn't say.

Well ain't that the fucking point. Thing is, the issue can be seen from many angles, and I asked which ones interest you.
>Don't give me some rigormorole about how i need to do the hokey pokey and pretend its bordering on impossible, when it more seems its not preferable. This is not an issue that should have ever even entered justication mode.
It did?

We can talk things broadly. We *should*, even. But I think that talking in broad terms ALONE isn't the most efficient way of talking.
>And also not to put me in a situation where i have to describe why i'm doing something to you, over something like this.
Excuse me?
>Here's what's obvious, i wanted something about being jaded, and what that meant, what i got was some person with an incredibly jaded response.
Well, I'm a really fucking jaded person.
>All i can say is put yourself in the position of looking for something, and then think about what someone saying well tell me exactly where it is found before i can help you look for it.
Nope. If I ask someone to help me look for something, I first need to tell that person something that will allow him/her to help me. How does that thing look like? What is it for? And so on. Otherwise, you end up in a scenario in which someone doesn't know what the HELL you're looking for, and therefore will either bring you random things you might or might not like, or give up and leave.
>this entire post was about things that were puzzling and or not clear, and you came and said the problem is these things are not clear.
No shit.

And just to clarify, I in no way consider this a pissing contest, you piqued my interest, actually.

the thing is your missing the possibility of being interested in from multiple angles, because your refusing to listen to it another way.

to me somebody saying when you talk about why something should be in the manner your suggesting it is, your in justification mode, because your justifying that as "why it's gotta be"

i believed that you thought that, what i'm saying is that there is a time in a place, i understand trying to think of something more permanent and more fixed, and perhaps that language might not agree with you, but something that you think is so regardless of when, where, and what. What i suggest to you is that's the problem you may feel that exceptions are problem because they make rules weaker, but rules are not valid when they don't apply, that might not be profound, that might be why you don't want to hear it, because it's not elite. The thing is though alot of your things have nothing do with what's at hand, there are some things that are better to talk about in broad terms that to make more specific would be a problem. There are in fact milions of things. For instance it depends alot on the end you think i'm trying to reach if thinking about this in the manner you suggested is efficient at all.

all i was saying skipping down because you somewhat understand and I would love to share the rage but for another day when i'm in a good enough state of being to no what it means regardless of an understanding mind to be able to talk to me about these things. I'm dealing with some sort of conflict about looking at things from multiple angles, and alot of times i can't put it across in words to you very well, i could describe something like the way that you said hey okay this is what i'm talking about, but i'm dealing with some sort of thing i've internalized where i feel like even though these are the things i would like to do i am actually dealing with a bizarre sense of guilt over these types of things. Which is not one i really agree with and am confused. Hence why i'm saying hey i get what your saying but i'm almost having like a pent up headached because of my baggage, with these things in o…

Also i should clarify as well or summarize, i'm in bit of a position where i feel i'm just regaining and/or finding new perspective, but that's a feeling that in the past i have had squashed or messed up by an almost shipwreck type situation, where i finally hit the seas but then i wreck into the cliffs immediatley, because i didn't really know where the waters ahead were. So i'm philosophically tip toeing because i'm the groundhog whose coming out of the hole and is like is this shit alright, and looking with alot more timidty apparently but i really i'm having the feeling of wondering is this really spring.

I'm not as wise as the groundhog though because i still often believe i can find spring even signs point to winter.
