Well? I used to cite Jung's global unconsciousness until I read more and realized he was referencing a cultural transference of knowledge or experience instead of some greater knowing that everyone is all tapped into. For example how a day after a crossword puzzle is released people complete the puzzle faster on average. Someone else mentioned "Disc World's" concept of how God implants knowledge in life, like how to cure cancer, but if its in a worm its unrealized. Obviously a worm doesn't have the biological capacity for that type of knowledge, but perhaps its destiny does.

What do you think?

what makes us such blood-thirsty psychopaths? how is our sense of justice so warped? there is literally no reason to have the insane prison sentences that we do, it's not based on evidence all evidence we have suggests rehabilitation over retribution leads to reduced crime rates, and there is no excuse for them being literally slave work camps where you get beaten and raped, sometimes by the inmates, sometimes by the guards, "CaN'T dO tHe TiMe..." they say if someone gets shanked over a pack of ramen, there are people who make fun of prisons in more civilized countries laughing at rights to human dignity we can only imagine, people will say "Finland's prisons are nicer than my apartment!" and mean that to be a criticism of their open prison system and not a scathing critique of the material conditions of this country

not only that, there was another story about some old fossil who shot at two home invaders as they were fleeing, shot a pregnant woman who was one of them in the back, he bragged that she even said she was pregnant, and you see people in the comments deep throating the old man's limp fetid cock for being a cold-blooded killer, making jokes about the death of a person likely just trying to survive, people will support booby-trapping your houses which by the grace of God for now is generally illegal, people think property is worth more than a life? why? what can we possibly do to correct such an evil, spiritually broken population?

these people will call themselves pro-life for thinking scrambling a bundle of cells that can't think or feel should be a capitol offense and without seeing the mind-boggling hypocrisy suggest the death penalty for abortionists, to these people once you actually do become a human being as you enter this world, your rights end at that point, you are the property of your parents to do what they want with you, beat the snot out of you and anyone who says that is disgusting is just a pussy and they say "I was beaten and I turned out just fine" well, no, you didn't turn out just fine if you think child-abuse is acceptable

and of course i hardly have to mention the anti-mask sentiment, which cropped up in other countries across the world but nowhere with as much support as here, but let me just highlight that popular video of that anti-masker who stripped naked in a school board meeting, to me somehow that wasn't the most shocking thing, what stuck with me the most and what my brain just refuses to process is that in his tirade he said he "ran 4 stop signs and 3 red lights" on his way to throw his temper tantrum, and even admits "I almost killed someone", and goes on to defend it by saying it was "his road too", what? what does that even mean? what broke in this man's brain to make him like this?

it's not just us who are like this obviously, around there world there is evil and heartlessness obviously, but even in those places, there is still a sense of community, a sense of at the very least caring about your OWN people, but Americans seem to think anyone other than them and their immediate family and friends are illusions, that there is no society, there is nothing that binds us together, human beings are social animals, we're meant to care about each other and have empathy, and in many places they still have that, what happened here to make us such a reprehensible, selfish, perverted peoples?

"Self-hating" is a misnomer because I don't think I'm personally responsible and the country I was born in in and of itself has nothing to do with my sense of self, I feel no illusory connection to everyone who happens to live between the same two oceans I do, but growing up here made me who I am and I don't regret it at all because I like who I am, I don't wish I had been born elsewhere because I don't know how that would be, we're a product of the place we spring up in and it's hard to change that I don't believe I could just go anywhere in the world and feel at home if there's no central American culture there certainly isn't any burgeoning "world culture", I actually like the city where I was born and I feel a connection to it, because that's real, that encompasses a couple hundred thousand neighbors I bump into every day and the physical land I walk on, things I see with my own two eyes, any connections outside of this are more or less imaginary, a cosmopolitan identity makes sense but I don't really see what could unite all 350,000,000 of us under one banner and it'd be an awful thing to try and find one because inevitably one groups potential would have to be quashed for the sake of another's, but anyway I like the city I call home and America has to exist for it to exist, so I accept that, I genuinely don't hate America as a whole because that'd be as stupid as I'm saying loving America as a whole would be, I just think we should be always be critical of the country we live in because that's the only thing that can make it a better place to be, and there's no reason not to be because we have no stake in the game

The self-modifying meme, name changing meme, or relevance meme, among other names, is a meme or meme complex whose name continually and purposefully changes by its community who posts it. Its names are usually self-explanatory. It is the meme most relevant to the most other parts of society of any cultural entity worldwide. Often considered the meme capital of the world, the meme complex has achieved a unique “super relevance”, whereby other memes compete for recognition through affiliation with it. The effect is considered comparable to the effects of Jonny Carson on celebrity relevance, Larry King on public relations, or Paris Hilton or the Kardashians on fame for being famous, but unlike those listed, the self-modifying meme complex it considered the first to successfully affect all aspects of society that was intentionally designed for such purpose, and with benevolent motivations.

Do "evil" people think they are evil, or that they are doing good? Seems to me you'd find more good people calling themselves evil than evil people calling themselves evil. This is assuming good and evil could even be "objective" states in the first place.

Idk, thread about Good and Evil I guess.

I'm going to sperg about Nietzsche a bit. In On The Genealogy of Morality, he talks about where our ideas of "good" and "evil" come from, how they evolved. In that work (which is a great read by the way) he compares two fundamentally different ways to think about morality.

There's "master morality", which is where you start by thinking "I am good" and by contrast, "those people who aren't like me are bad." Greece and Rome are two great examples of cultures built around master morality: how do you know somebody is a great hero, say, in the Trojan War? Because they're proud; they had the ability to kill a lot of people and used it. Master morality thinks about morality in terms of loving one's own life and self, and disliking non-self. Master morality doesn't see good vs evil, but good vs bad.

Slave morality is instead birthed by miserable people who get hurt by others, and takes the other rather than the self as the starting point. Slave moralists think, "those others are evil", and by contrast "I am good". Nietzsche has a fun section where he thinks about sheep and birds of prey, and imagines what sort of morality each of the two would evolve. The birds wouldn't hate the sheep - they'd even like them, and think they're delicious. The sheep, on the other hand, would see the birds as the very incarnation of evil. They'd even develop a moral code among themselves, that whoever is the least like a bird is the most good. Judea and Christianity are good example of slave moralist societies/movements. Slave moralists don't think in terms of good vs bad, but in terms of good vs evil. But slave morality is ultimately a cope - it's not like a slave moralist wouldn't do the things they denounce in the other - lust, gluttony, wrath, etc - they just that they're in a weak position where they can't, and convince themselves that makes them better. Just take a look at Christian concepts of hell - Christians say they're all about love and justice, but get off on imagining worse torments for those they call evil than master moralists ever inflict.

I once heard someone say that we shouldn't call terrorists evil - from the terrorist's perspective, if you've already dehumanized your enemy and now you see them calling you evil, it doesn't make you think, "Huh, maybe I am evil" but rather, "Great, I've really gotten to them." We should instead call terrorists stupid - they're not working for their own interests, but just pawns of a greater worldly power that's happy to sacrifice them, etc.

What does it mean for something to be bad? Once in a while the universe will destroy an entire solar system or galaxy (that may be inhabited for all we know) with the same innocence as a kid kicking down a sand castle - would you call that evil, or bad?

I truly believe that there's no bad intentions even in the most vile people. Perception is such a tricky thing, you could brainwash yourself (unconsciously) into believing and justifying virtually anything. An example could be Eliot Rodgers "paradise" hiding woman away in concentration camps so that no man would have to suffer rejection. He really thought that his "world" was a good thing.

Probably my favorite quote by anyone, xtian apologists do some extraordinary mental contortions to square the circle, it's really frustrating how a lot of them just shrug and say it's not MY idea it's GOD'S and try to wriggle their way out of owning their own beliefs, even if you think you don't have the ultimate authority in your belief system they're still you're beliefs, and these beliefs in particular still betray a certain wickedness for being able to accept them at all, I'm not an atheist and if I believed such a vain, petty, and unpredictable God as fundamentalists do actually existed it would be horrifying, I wouldn't worship the beast I would resent it

Hey guys I'm just starting to learn how to meditate. So far I can go up to 3 minutes and after that I can't focus any longer. But, I'd say I'm starting off good.

How many of you here meditate on a daily basis? In what way does it help you? What is your favorite type of meditation?

I'm learning sleep meditation and zen. I want to broaden my horizons and love myself again. With this meditation I hope to achieve a higher level of being and be able to like myself and have a positive outlook on life.

Always look to what you are goig to do next. Whether by the minute hour, or naxt
day for that matter. So when you come to it, you will be already understanding
what you psed in your head. It's not mediation, I always thout meditation was
kinda dorky. But it likely gives much of the same self-leveling,

Wow it's been 6 years since I made this thread. Yeah OP here. I haven't meditated in a few years. I want to pick it back up as it gave me many benefits back then. During the beginning of this thread to now Ive been on disability and before the year started I was doing nothing with myself, just rotting at home all day which went on for almost 4 years. Now, I have a job I've been at for a month and have gotten off disability. I'm on a strict diet and about to go back to the gym next week. I've gone through a lot of hard times and adversity over the past four years. But, it has only made me stronger.

I want to keep improving upon myself with more success and I feel that meditation can reinforce my confidence and my (positive) thoughts. I know it can make me more open minded and come to realizations about life and about myself. I'm on a journey of self improvement and I don't want to stop progressing towards being a better version of myself than I was yesterday.

So, I'm starting a routine of meditation as of today. I know it'll go well and the more I do it the better I'll become as a person.

I hope you guys who are and have been meditating find happiness and success in your lives.

>Essentially the Authoritarian Left-Libertarian paradise everyone wants to live in:

Religion is banned outside of a personal philosophical context.
Essentially meaning religion as an oranized entity and force is illegal. However religious texts,images and iconography would still be available for individual study via an internet 3.0, libraries, museums and distributed archives. Some religious architecture of significance would obviously have to be preserved.

As for the rest of society I'm making the assumption that humaniry is going to likely destroy itself and be replaced by machines. However being in North America I would advoacte the cessation of poor land use and misuse of resources.

Personally I like a lot of the benefits of the American Way of Life. But unfrotunately it's going to go away forever if we dont invest ourselves intellectually,financially, societally and physically. As for the rest of the world I dont really give a shit about them. Being a Canadien or a US Citizen is a real priviledge, despite one's heritage.

So what's the diagnosis for an individual that understands only their own boundary and choice, not how their action of choice leads to a consequence, of others making a choice?

As in, everyone has a boundary and can make a choice, and it causes others to make choices, but this guy only understands themselves, so any stimuli applied to them, is duplicated by themselves, indefinitely.

Left brain dominant, perhaps. There's a neuroscientist, McGilchrist, whose research interest is in how the two hemispheres of the brain work differently. It's not the pop psych notion that "the left brain is used for one thing and the right brain for a different thing", but rather, both hemispheres are used for each task - they just approach them differently; two contradictory logics are always at work in our minds. The left brain is concerned with machinic logic and tool use, and categorizes things according to how they can be used. The right brain, conversely, models reality as an autonomous system, an interconnected web, etc. McGilchrist writes about how, from a strictly neuroscientific point of view, the person who is well-adjusted to and successful in society shares a lot in common with a person suffering from serious right hemisphere damage. Society itself pushes left-brain logic almost to the exclusion of right-brain logic.

He mostly writes for an academic audience, but there's a great documentary on his work ("The Divided Brain") if you'd like to check that out.

i posted this on /b/ earlier but the thread got locked after a few minutes so i'm coming here

basically i just spent most of yesterday reading articles about transgenderism as a whole

i had a negative perception of the whole thing before but i now realize that the fact that this mess has been allowed to attain the least bit of mainstrean acceptance and credibility is a downright travesty
this is not a medical mistake at the magnitude of lobotomy
it's way worse and if we don't stop this soon thousands of insecure and mentally ill youth will experience a horrible death at the hand of themselves, helped by the legions of psychologists and surgeons who are willing to ignore studies on the subject that very clearly paints a picture of transpeople as having severe psychological problems that will persist even after SRS

before today I thought that it was ok to call transpeople "freaks" and ridicule them
not anymore as i realize doing so would only fuel their movement which i now know has to be stopped at all costs

SRS needs to be banned asap as does transgenderism being classified as anything but the mental illness gender dysphoria

these people (most of whom grow out of this as long as they aren't encouraged to destroy their own bodies) are in dire need of psychiatric help

The racial mindset we see today is the result of generations of propaganda. Intentional propaganda pushed by whites who wanted the acceptance of other races. This was well meaning, but the fact is that the idea was universally pushed in an unnatural way.

As a result today's white youth have become racist as a symbol of independence, similar to the defiance of short lived traditions we saw in the 70's. Deep in their minds they understand they've been told what to think all their lives, they know what they are allowed to say, and they are having none of it. Not because they ever believed in supremacy, but because they understand the end result is not equality or fairness but eternal subjugation.

https://www.pewsocialtrends.org/2019/01/17/generation-z-looks-a-lot-like-millennials-on-key-social-and-political-issues/

I just thought this was interesting and completely contradicts the prevailing notion I see in some places that our generation is somehow more "right-leaning" or "conservative" than millenials. I think there is this weird tiny but vocal clique among extremely online Gen-Zers (which is a relatively small clique in and of itself) that are people at various stages of falling down the alt-right pipeline. Call it the "PewDiePipeline" if you really want to piss these people off, because he's a spotless victim of the ebil newspapers that have the audacity to report the things he says and does

But mentioning that, it is a little concerning that one of the most popular personalities on one of the most popular platforms among generation Z is a guy that keeps coming closer and closer to flirting with outright, unironic, fascism. That said, I don't think most of his kid fan base gives a shit, they just want to see the funny screaming swedish man, but they might internalize enough of what he says that they start to believe the garbage he peddles. He unironically told his 50 million subscribers to read 12 Rules for Life lmao, oh and there's the whole wearing an iron cross on a video where you announce you're rescinding a donation to an anti-hate organization, and the whole "death to all Jews" but it's actually a really funny joke xd, and following people like Stefan Molyneux and Millenial Woes on Twitter, and defending Jon Tron, and a bunch of other gaffs).

But I mean, his fans and YouTube reply guys in general are let's say not the most socially successful among us. So I really don't know how much influence the things they believe has on the real world.

And at the same time, more liberal personalities are coming to the forefront on a website that has historically had an undeniably reactionary user base. And despite the inherent contradictions of it, most of the "right-wing" Gen-zers still don't give a shit about race, gender or gender identity, sexuality, because they were brought up in a way where none of these things were even presented as contentious issues, shitty attack helicopter jokes not withstanding

So, are the kids alright?

Being 22 I am one, albeit on the older end that mostly rejects the title (personally I love my generation, and identify far more with them than millenials) but i have a very carefully selected social circle so i can't possibly have an unbiased opinion, most of the people I know are on the far Left, I just encircled myself with like-minded people because there's no reason not to in this day and age, but I try to get a feel for what people think as a whole, because that ultimately affects my human rights as a (currently) protected minority

I see this alot. But if poverty causes criminality, does that mean there are no rich criminals? Secondly, I think violent crime is specifically the subject here. And it points to a level of civilization in a culture to pursue conflict resolution by other means. And a certain level of sophistication to resolve heightened conflict with high technology nuclear weapons instead of rocks and spears?

>Are there no rich criminals

They commit different crimes, ones that far more often go unpunished, some people obviously have issues with anti-social behavior, or are just bad people, and that's why they're criminals but a lot of poor people will steal to not starve/die, even kill if it means a better life for their children, it's not an excuse but billionaires fucking boys on little st. james while posting record profits during one of the darkest periods in history have absolutely no excuse, and they get off scott free with the occasional inconvenient one being suicided.

The point is that the existence of petty crime absolutely is a social issue, even if the people out there doing crimes to survive do more than they absolutely need to to not die, if they were to actually have their basic needs provided for by society which is how we survived for millions of years in close knit tribal communities with everyone working together, there would be far less, it wouldn't eliminate it entirely but it's very disingenuous to say well if it's not a perfect solution than we shouldn't do it, there are no perfect solutions to anything in life, there is no black or white only grey

>And a certain level of sophistication to resolve heightened conflict with high technology nuclear weapons instead of rocks and spears?

That's like the dumbest example you could've picked to make your point, nuclear weapons simply existing doesn't resolve anything, except one time a war that was already basically over I guess, now that the world powers all have they're basically useless to any sane leader, but could easily fall into the hands of one who isn't and that would be the certain end of mankind, what does that actually get us? What does their mere existence symbolize about our "civilization"?

>And it points to a level of civilization in a culture to pursue conflict resolution by other means

Oh OK I agree then glassing the entire planet is a much more civilized method of conflict resolution than jumpings and drive-bys

man i wish you weren't banned i would've wanted to pick your mirror-finish brain some more see what you'd come up with, just had to go post cp didn't you?

Here is a clip of old Carl Gustav Jung being asked if he believes in god.

https://youtu.be/Os3RscGfkhE?t=78

He says "I know, don't need to believe."

What does he mean by this? Do you have any clue as to how he reached that conclusion?

>consciousness only comes from greater consciousness

I tend to support the idea that consciousness is something that arises in complex information systems (i.e. us) after they reach a certain level of complexity/self-reference, an idea explained very well I think by Douglas Hofstadter in his book I Am A Strange Loop, which is satisfying to me because it explains the actual issue at hand (i.e. the nature of this phenomenon we're calling consciousness) in a comprehensive, clear way, and it requires no faith to explain, unlike something like "consciousness only comes from greater consciousness", which actually means fuck all, like what is the nature of this greater consciousness? how do we know? oh we "feel" it?

The universe is interesting and complex enough as it is, we don't need to trick ourselves into wondering at nothing.

Why is this debate so undervalued and overlook? I personally think this discourse is the foundation for human development in the future. Let me feed on your thoughts.

To add to this. Honestly it just takes a small stroke of genius or being in the right place at the right time.

Do you think the banking cartels really wanted trump to get elected?

Crazy shit can easily happen at the flip of a dime. This is the knowledge they are terrified of.

And what are politicians without their supporters? What are politicians if they cannot get you to think what they want you to think?

What is supporting corruption is that we as a people have become too lazy to try and change what our government and politicians are doing.

The entire house of cards crumbles without our support. It doesn't matter how corrupt you think they are.

And what do all politicians like? To be elected. To have supporters. And to make money.

The goal is to make C require A and B.

It is our complacency which is silently supporting them. When more people start to get involved in changing the government, eventually politicians will be forced to follow, as populists. It requires a certain threshold to be crossed. That's it.

The entire thing is an illusion.
