Welcome to /ub/ - Überhengst

German for "over stallion," and a reference to Nietzsche's "Übermensch," /üb/ - Überhengst is about bettering yourself physically, mentally, spiritually, and emotionally. It is about self-improvement, constructive self-reflection, and seeking advice from others. You may discuss here those personal hobbies through which you develop your creative energies, and the efforts you take to improve your talents, artistic and otherwise. And of course, this is a board for fitness and literature, as they are parts of the backbone of physical and mental wellness. This is also a board where we may discuss Western culture - history, literature, architecture, and philosophy - as when imbibed, culture improves the mind and spirit, sharpening mental faculties, and providing a greater connection to those around you and to civilizations millennia old.

As this is a self-improvement board, discussions of personal problems should be constructive. No wallowing in self-pity. We are here to become better, and while seeking company in misery may be a helpful part of the process, the process does not end there.

Enjoy!

Should I get therapy?

Is therapy just a joke, or is it worth getting? Who should I do therapy with? Can I trust my entire life's story with anyone who's not on this site?
Maybe if I tell you my life's story, you can give me life advice.

I was raised by abusive lefty parents who hated their smart white son and often tried to push me towards trannyism. Never fell for it.
First I was sent to a shit primary school. A few kids bullied me there and teachers punished me whenever I fought back. I was a fat angry kid who could punch hard when pushed, and they liked attacking me and then running away. But when we fought properly I'd kick their asses. One time I kicked their asses hard enough to make them stop bothering me.
When I graduated from this school I was sent to the special school of a catholic school, and made the personal property of one old bitch there who hated autistic kids. Around that era I got interested in Game Maker and pokemon romhacking but that interest never amounted to anything, though I did have a USB full of GBA roms and romhacking tools and the fact that I was able to code at such a young age when not all kids were learning that should have shown somebody that I had more to offer the world than shitty schools thought I should.
Thanks to that school, my schedule looked like this: Enter a side building, wait for the day to end, sometimes get insulted by the teachers if they felt like abusing me, usually get to eat lunch at lunchtime but sometimes they wouldn't let me (and it didn't matter whether I brought a packed lunch to school or brought money for the school cafeteria) and eventually go home to a house with parents that, when told the right words by my boomer bullies, would freak out and abuse me at home too. Rarely I'd get to join in a classroom... but class clowns would act up until I'd get blamed for it and sent out.
If I had a tape recorder or decent phone, I could have gathered evidence of the shit said/done to me (audio files of verbal abuse, pics of bruises, etc) and posted it online. But I was never allowed anything like that, because my parents feared I might use it on them. One day at school the art teacher bumped me with her car while backing up into a crowd of kids, I was fine but pissed off and the art teacher shrieked and blame-slinged feministically at me until I lost my patience and started barking back, then she put me in front of the headmaster and I told him about the abusive staff members and called him terrible at his job, so he kicked me out.
Then I was sent to a worthless "speshul" school where a few teachers abused me and the students usually watched in confusion when they weren't joining in. Whenever I trusted an adult enough to tell him or her what happened at home, that adult decided to call child protective services, who sent the same fucking boomer woman over to warn my parents that I was talking about what went on at home again. I couldn't get away from my family until I became the problem of Adult Protective Services, where the slightly less retarded and lazy people go.
A woman my age at the autistics-only youth club I attended got mad at me over retarded internet roleplaying nonsense-drama that didn't even involve me, and she lied about me to the cops and accused me of abusing her, even went to some clinic to fake signs of a concussion she didn't have because she's a spoilt bitch who knows how to play her rich parents like fiddles, she was a low-functioning sociopath woman with histrionic personality disorder and every retarded boomer's sympathy. She lied and got away with it, because the cops weren't interested in this case after she cartoonishly fucked up and started gloating about physically assaulting me without realizing it hurt her case. But even though I said to the managers of the youth club and the friends I knew there "If what she said about me was true I'd be in jail so you know she's lying" they couldn't believe me because they were dumb. There was one weird creepy fucker I used to talk to online because his "woe is me, asian school life is sooo hard" shit kind of reminded me of me at the time, but he got severe TDS and stopped being a person once he stopped viewing me as a person so I'm glad I didn't tell him anything sensitive or identifiable that could fuck me over later in life.
Anyway when I went to college, I was lied to and exploited by the staff until I dropped out. They even tricked me into taking a worthless course that turned out to be the dump where they dump the autistic kids and give them a useless fake newspaper to write. I wish I dropped out sooner, trying to live on barely fucking anything is hard enough when your mom took govt money meant for you, but it's harder when you're forced to spend most of your cash on train rides between your college and shitty home every two weeks and all your cunt government can offer is a discount pass. Now that I'm living alone, I've got a free bus pass I can barely use. Government priorities, am I right?

I am an autistic man, I'm 24 years old, I'll be 25 next year, and I've spent so much of my life as property of someone else that I find it hard to notice when I'm hungry or tired and remember that I should eat or sleep without someone or a phone alarm telling me to. I shower every night before bed but sometimes I miss meals, it's what helped me go from obese fatty to only-slightly-overweight. I don't think I know what it feels like to be loved by someone else. Learning makes me happy and I love documentaries but when I tried an online free learning site it reminded me of school and I couldn't do it. Sometimes I talk to people and act charming like those "Charisma on command" youtube vids told me so they'll like me, but I've never given anyone my full backstory before. The only woman in my life I ever kissed was that bitch who falsely accused me and got away with it. I want to say I have no interest in modern women but I still feel the urge to wank to them. But I don't wank any more because of nofap.

Jesus this exercise bike is hardcore. Worth every damn penny.

It's always pissed me off when demoralized cucks try to deny the superiority of space travel/space habitats on the baseless grounds that it would be difficult and not benefit people currently alive. How does that old saying go again, the one from a wise civilization that eventually collapsed but was pretty based before it collapsed into degeneracy and forgot its own wisdom? That quote about how society is great when old men plant trees so that young people may bask in their shade. Mankind's future belongs in the stars. Without space travel we're just idiots moving matter around on a single planet that could easily become our gravestone. Would it really be such a tragedy in the doomer's mind if jobs were created by companies that wanted to colonize space or go bankrupt trying? I'm sure those working for the industries that supply those space companies with resources for cash would be happy no matter how things go. Those cowardly doomer cucks should take their defeatist attitudes to hospitals and try saying their "lets just give up my fellow white males" shit around terminally ill patients with a slim chance of recovery. They'd get their asses kicked for it. They only talk that way because the thought of space naturally gives the white man hope that his science can answer life's questions and solve its greatest problems, problems leftism can only worsen. That talk spits in the eye of every forefather who fought and bled and broke a fucking sweat so the comfortably numb doomandgloomposter can masturbatorially brandish his cynical corporate-mandated defeatism like he thinks it's something to be proud of. Whites can into space. One planet is not enough. And we'll never get into space if we shoot ourselves in the foot slaving away for jewish slavemasters while pretending we are equal to literal niggers. "Equality" is a lie meant to discourage greatness. "Liberalism" is a leftist weapon meant to dismantle the aspects of functional civilizations that let them enjoy the benefits of Liberty and Plenty and Truth and other thing the ravenous weaponized useless eaters loathe.

The lack of free will is a myth that comforts faggots by letting them tell themselves they'd be better people if they lived in better times that gave them more opportunities to be good people and fewer opportunities to be cunts or lazy faggots or lazy faggoted cunts.

ITT we share wisdoms that we have gleaned through our own experiences with our fellow Anons, that they might live a better life. I'll start:

NEVER ask a question unless you are %100 that you want to know the answer. Whatever happens, you literally asked for it, so you better be damn sure you really wanted to know. Remember this and it will help you with friends, family, lovers, and even children. Live your life by it.

Better yet, raise your kids to be normal, functional children who like to go outside and use their imaginations for entertainment. Then, if you really need to punish them, you can just give them a phone and make them read vapid tweets written by celebrity idiots for an hour.

Rape Radbury from Farenheight 69 or whatever it's called was right, abridging a great book is just as bad as burning it.
As a kid my shit school had "abridged versions" of famous great novels aka baby versions of the books with a few important-to-movies scenes kept in but all of the depth censored.
Reading all the real english classics makes my brain bigger.

Nigel:

The book you're thinking of is Fahrenheit 451 by Ray Bradbury, a simple Google search could have told you that. Giving a disparaging name to an author and the title of his novel while simultaneously praising what he has to say is an odd thing to do. Also, if you had actually read the English classics it would stand to reason that you would at least know their titles and the names of the people who wrote them. Also, nothing you are saying has anything to do with the content of the post you are replying to. Please stop being a massive fucking sperg.

Sincerely,
Everyone

IIT we discuss and study the Bible. I will be using the King James Version and will take the stance of a fundamental literalist, which is a bit redundant, but these days there exist many that claim to be fundamental but reject the literal interpretation of Scripture when they encounter something they don't agree or understand. I am not a Bible scholar, I'm not a pastor, I don't currently attend any denomination's church service. I'm just an anon that really like to study the Bible. Feel free to argue with me, I could be completely wrong and I hope to learn more about the Bible along the way.

I will post below my first study topic and what I have researched about it. Hopefully it will be interesting and somewhat engaging.

Isaiah 64
4 For since the beginning of the world men have not heard, nor perceived by the ear, neither hath the eye seen, O God, beside thee, what he hath prepared for him that waiteth for him. 5 Thou meetest him that rejoiceth and worketh righteousness, those that remember thee in thy ways: behold, thou art wroth; for we have sinned: in those is continuance, and we shall be saved. 6 But we are all as an unclean thing, and all our righteousnesses are as filthy rags; and we all do fade as a leaf; and our iniquities, like the wind, have taken us away. 7 And there is none that calleth upon thy name, that stirreth up himself to take hold of thee: for thou hast hid thy face from us, and hast consumed us, because of our iniquities.

Following the law does no good, as it's purpose was to reveal your sin. For all the works that you may do in the name of righteousness, it is as filthy rags. No one can save themselves. All have sinned. But if all have sinned, how come there are names on the book that are blotted out?

James 2
10 For whosoever shall keep the whole law, and yet offend in one point, he is guilty of all. 11 For he that said, Do not commit adultery, said also, Do not kill. Now if thou commit no adultery, yet if thou kill, thou art become a transgressor of the law.

John 3
14 And as Moses lifted up the serpent in the wilderness, even so must the Son of man be lifted up: 15 That whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have eternal life. 16 For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life. 17 For God sent not his Son into the world to condemn the world; but that the world through him might be saved. 18 He that believeth on him is not condemned: but he that believeth not is condemned already, because he hath not believed in the name of the only begotten Son of God.

Romans 5
6 For when we were yet without strength, in due time Christ died for the ungodly. 7 For scarcely for a righteous man will one die: yet peradventure for a good man some would even dare to die. 8 But God commendeth his love toward us, in that, while we were yet sinners, Christ died for us. 9 Much more then, being now justified by his blood, we shall be saved from wrath through him. 10 For if, when we were enemies, we were reconciled to God by the death of his Son, much more, being reconciled, we shall be saved by his life.

These verses reveal that the world might be saved, meaning that all the people in the world are written in the book. Those that sin will have their names blotted out, and the works of their life judged for they are recorded in the books around Jesus. Those works, as we learned, no matter how great, are still tainted by sin, and thus all who are not found in the book, as they are blotted out by sin, will be cast into the lake of fire. That means all of us are destined for that fate if it wasn't for Jesus, who died in our place and rose from the dead. He confesses our names to God to not be blot out, that we are spared from our fate.

I believe that sums up the book of life pretty well. The final note would be, how can a church be dead? It is filled with those in sin and unbelievers. We reach the verse that splits a lot of people up, but it is important to understand how a church is dead.

James 2
14 What doth it profit, my brethren, though a man say he hath faith, and have not works? can faith save him? 15 If a brother or sister be naked, and destitute of daily food, 16 And one of you say unto them, Depart in peace, be ye warmed and filled; notwithstanding ye give them not those things which are needful to the body; what doth it profit? 17 Even so faith, if it hath not works, is dead, being alone. 18 Yea, a man may say, Thou hast faith, and I have works: shew me thy faith without thy works, and I will shew thee my faith by my works. 19 Thou believest that there is one God; thou doest well: the devils also believe, and tremble. 20 But wilt thou know, O vain man, that faith without works is dead? 21 Was not Abraham our father justified by works, when he had offered Isaac his son upon the altar? 22 Seest thou how faith wrought with his works, and by works was faith made perfect? 23 And the scripture was fulfilled which saith, Abraham believed God, and it was imputed unto him for righteousness: and he was called the Friend of God. 24 Ye see then how that by works a man is justified, and not by faith only. 25 Likewise also was not Rahab the harlot justified by works, when she had received the messengers, and had sent them out another way? 26 For as the body without the spirit is dead, so faith without works is dead also.

This verse clearly lines out that faith alone can't save you, which would render everything I posted null and void without understanding what the passage means. We already established that what we do is evil to God, but what God commands you to do is what makes your faith perfect, complete as it is meant to be. If Abraham told God, yep, I believe you, but I'm not going up that mountain to kill my kid, then what use is that faith? When you believe the Word of God, your life is changed. We go back to what is a work, which is your life, what you do, not just a specific kind of deed. Giving to charity does not save you, but a person that claims to be Christian that is never charitible is likely not saved at all, as is revealed to us through Scripture.

Galatians 5
14 For all the law is fulfilled in one word, even in this; Thou shalt love thy neighbour as thyself. 15 But if ye bite and devour one another, take heed that ye be not consumed one of another. 16 This I say then, Walk in the Spirit, and ye shall not fulfil the lust of the flesh. 17 For the flesh lusteth against the Spirit, and the Spirit against the flesh: and these are contrary the one to the other: so that ye cannot do the things that ye would. 18 But if ye be led of the Spirit, ye are not under the law. 19 Now the works of the flesh are manifest, which are these; Adultery, fornication, uncleanness, lasciviousness, 20 Idolatry, witchcraft, hatred, variance, emulations, wrath, strife, seditions, heresies, 21 Envyings, murders, drunkenness, revellings, and such like: of the which I tell you before, as I have also told you in time past, that they which do such things shall not inherit the kingdom of God. 22 But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, longsuffering, gentleness, goodness, faith, 23 Meekness, temperance: against such there is no law. 24 And they that are Christ's have crucified the flesh with the affections and lusts. 25 If we live in the Spirit, let us also walk in the Spirit. 26 Let us not be desirous of vain glory, provoking one another, envying one another.

The Holy Spirit compells you to do good works, to live right with God, and to hate the fruit of the world. You are dead if you have no works. You just know the name of God, and you aren't His own. You are as the false preachers, that know all about God, they likely even believe He exists, but they aren't saved.

Matthew 7
15 Beware of false prophets, which come to you in sheep's clothing, but inwardly they are ravening wolves. 16 Ye shall know them by their fruits. Do men gather grapes of thorns, or figs of thistles? 17 Even so every good tree bringeth forth good fruit; but a corrupt tree bringeth forth evil fruit. 18 A good tree cannot* bring forth evil fruit, neither can a corrupt tree bring forth good fruit. 19 Every tree that bringeth not forth good fruit is hewn down, and cast into the fire. 20 Wherefore by their fruits ye shall know them. 21 Not every one that saith unto me, Lord, Lord, shall enter into the kingdom of heaven; but he that doeth the will of my Father which is in heaven. 22 Many will say to me in that day, Lord, Lord, have we not prophesied in thy name? and in thy name have cast out devils? and in thy name done many wonderful works? 23 And then will I profess unto them*, I never knew you: depart from me, ye that work iniquity.

This ties back to the devils, or demons, James mentions, that believe in Jesus, yet aren't saved. Salvation is something only you and God can know between yourselves. You know if you are saved if you believed in the Lord. Nothing you do can save you from your fate. After salvation, your heart is changed.

II Corinthians
4 For the love of Christ constraineth us; because we thus judge, that if one died for all, then were all dead: 15 And that he died for all, that they which live should not henceforth live unto themselves, but unto him which died for them, and rose again. 16 Wherefore henceforth know we no man after the flesh: yea, though we have known Christ after the flesh, yet now henceforth know we him no more. 17 Therefore if any man be in Christ, he is a new creature: old things are passed away; behold, all things are become new. 18 And all things are of God, who hath reconciled us to himself by Jesus Christ, and hath given to us the ministry of reconciliation; 19 To wit, that God was in Christ, reconciling the world unto himself, not imputing their trespasses unto them; and hath committed unto us the word of reconciliation. 20 Now then we are ambassadors for Christ, as though God did beseech you by us: we pray you in Christ's stead, be ye reconciled to God. 21 For he hath made him to be sin for us, who knew no sin; that we might be made the righteousness of God in him.

Therefore, if you are saved, you will obey God. You will still sin in this body, as I can testify to. You will never be perfect as all you are is still flesh, still tied to the world, still tempted by the devil. But you will also now have the fruit of the spirit, you can pray to God for wisdom, understanding, and help to show yourself more fruitful, to make your works perfect in Him. In essence, your faith allows you to do works which makes your faith perfect. Again, there is no measure of what works to do, because that isn't what the verse is saying. You don't do x good things to please God, you simply believe and do what God commands, the good works are set out in the Bible, the fruit of the spirit. That is what keeps you and the body of Christ alive.

That was a longer one, but I feel like that was a great look at everything you can learn from just a short passage.

something I thought of from this discussion; God is very patient with us and holds off on punishment and judgement, in order to win us over to repentance and obedience.

Also it's super neat how God writes His ways into our hearts as we walk with Him more and more. It really is Jesus changing us when it's deeply rooted sins which He helps us overcome. Always keep fighting and know that it's ok to mess up a lot, as long as you're fighting to move forward. The righteous man falls seven times and rises again.

I am going through some struggles right now with a family member. If you keep him in your prayers, that would be very kind right now.

Revelation 3
7 And to the angel of the church in Philadelphia write; These things saith he that is holy, he that is true, he that hath the key of David, he that openeth, and no man shutteth; and shutteth, and no man openeth; 8 I know thy works: behold, I have set before thee an open door, and no man can shut it: for thou hast a little strength, and hast kept my word, and hast not denied my name. 9 Behold, I will make them of the synagogue of Satan, which say they are Jews, and are not, but do lie; behold, I will make them to come and worship before thy feet, and to know that I have loved thee. 10 Because thou hast kept the word of my patience, I also will keep thee from the hour of temptation, which shall come upon all the world, to try them that dwell upon the earth. 11 Behold, I come quickly: hold that fast which thou hast, that no man take thy crown. 12 Him that overcometh will I make a pillar in the temple of my God, and he shall go no more out: and I will write upon him the name of my God, and the name of the city of my God, which is new Jerusalem, which cometh down out of heaven from my God: and I will write upon him my new name. 13 He that hath an ear, let him hear what the Spirit saith unto the churches.

Here we find Jesus talking to the church in Philadelphia. The name comes from the root of love as one has for a brother, making it a fitting name for a church that is faithful unto God. He says what He opens, no man can shut, and what He shuts, no man can open. The immediate parallel most make is opportunity opening and closing, but it is much more than that. It is all events in the world. Nothing happens that catches God off guard because He opened the way and closes anything that may not be. Here we see that the works of the church are known and so God opens up something that can not be undone by any force of the world. For they had a little strength and had not denied God, He set up for them a great mission. The synagogue of Satan will come and worship before them, for they will understand that the love of God is with the church and not themselves.

The reward for keeping the faith is being kept from the hour of temptation, that tries them that dwell on the earth. This refers to what the rest of Revelation will cover, the rise of the antichrist, who tempts the world into worship of the dragon, Satan. They will have no part in the coming disaster. Just like the previous church, they are instructed to hold on to what they have. To those that overcome, they are made the pillar in the temple of God, meaning they are what hold it up, and they won't leave it. They will also have the name of God written on them, which is the counter to the antichrist, which will have his name or his number written on those that serve him. Jesus then reveals what will be covered in more detail at the end of the book, New Jerusalem. Finally, Jesus reveals that they will also bear His new name, which also will be covered towards the end of the book.

I must apologize for the quality of this post. I might return to it later with more references and Scripture to back up different lessons you can take from this passage, but I couldn't get it all worded just right this time, so I omitted it for now. Perhaps I will have a clear head and a better study for next time. Until then, thank you for sticking with me so far.

It's weird that Divorce makes a more permanent connection between two adults than Marriage.

What does The Bible have to say on marriage, divorce, and how adult relationships are supposed to function?

I haven't been able to get a gym membership lately due to time constraints (and wanting to get the best possible deal) so what I've done is do squats and jumping jacks wearing a backpack full of heavy books. It's very cheap (provided you're a student) and effective. I'm going for the "T-Rex build" for now as I've injured my arm and can't do any pushups for now.

May sound played out but for aesthetics unironically go lift. Lifting drives muscle protein synthesis better than anything else, then to drop bodyfat % just eat on a calorie deficit (cutting, still eat lots of protein of course). I'm about to finish my cut, dropped 30 lbs and my lifts have hardly gone down meaning probably like 27 lbs or so of that was fat, and now I have muscle so I don't look like a skelly. If I was running every day I doubt my lats and traps would be a big as they are now (thanks deadlifting) so I have that masculine massive upper back look starting to stand out now that my beer gut is gone. Now that I'm slim I want to add more muscle mass so I'm going back on a calorie surplus soon.

Get a gym membership, go lift, focus on the Big Four. You won't regret it.

I kind of dropped off from my normal exercise routine which was a bunch of simple exercises with a pair of 5-pound weights, some lunges, squats, and pushups.

On the other side, I started some part-time work doing tree removal, and I just picked up a job doing construction work to fill out the rest of the week.

As far as I know, I'm basically being paid to work out.

I would like to get better at lifting heavy things, as that'd be clearly applicable for my work and would catalyze more muscle definition. I'm on the skinny side, but I wouldn't mind getting swole. I'm just worried that if I work out one day that it'll kill my ability to do work the next day.

One problem plaguing a lot of people these days, especially burgers like myself, is that many people eat out at restaurants too much instead of preparing home cooked meals. Eating out is frequently both more expensive and less healthy for you than a home cooked meal. Furthermore, many people live with a limited library of meals that they know how to prepare and don't realize the culinary possibilities that are right in front of them.

The purpose of this thread is to try to break that habit of eating out and to make cooking at home become the norm in our lives. Please share meal ideas and how to prepare them here. All meals are welcome, although preferably we should post meals that are easy to prepare so that novice cooks will not be intimidated by the prospect of preparing them for themselves. Even simple sandwiches are fair game. Sometimes that may mean cutting corners with pre-made mixes instead of preparing everything from scratch.

Remember that the goal isn't necessarily to post the most inexpensive meals or the healthiest meals, although those meals are certainly very welcome. The goal is to encourage people to dust off their kitchen appliances and flex their atrophied cooking muscles. I realize that this opens the door to culinary nightmares like /tg/'s infamous meat-bread, but so be it. Let's get cooking!

Just read the ingredients list.
If they cover them with added sugar and whatnot, they're unhealthy. If there's no additives, they're about as healthy as eating dried fruit and nuts.

Makes sense. Is "cold-pressing" good or just a marketing meme?

It supposedly has higher nutritional value because the machines don't use heat in the pressing process. Idk if that's significant though.
In theory, there are some nutrients in fruit and nuts that may be denatured under high heats. Cold pressing might also preserve the flavor of the ingredients.

Perhaps if you will, describe what about you mentally and completely snapped? This seems to be at the crux of the equation. In my case (with the gays and their info campaign) I quickly lost interest and stopped responding. Your experience could shed more light. In what way did you snap?

Imagine everything in your room becoming dark, going completely schizo and then screaming at the top of your lungs while you seek out to destroy everything in your path, you break a bunch of shit before your brain snaps and you see in your mind what has been causing it this whole time as if it was something of pure darkness and you kill said thing as if the darkness you fight is inside you. Then you look around and snap back to reality as you stand above a knocked over monitor and broken shards of glass and plates. And you go to lay down and you stare at the ceiling. And your next goal is to put your life back together.

Today is Wednesday which is the day of Mercury, the 3rd day of the week, it is the full moon tonight and it's the last super one until next year. La Luna is so beautiful, many nights have been spent upon the observation of her rise and fall, the 28 days of constant waxing and waning.

Eh, I didn't really need to get rid of that video but whatever, I know where she is but it's fairly far away. Still miss her.
There is another clandestine equine that's caught my eye anyways. Albeit, more moodier than she ever was, their hormones change the way they behave like it does with women but this one is extra bitchy in heat, sometimes it appears as if they have split personalities, though it is merely the estrus cycles that change their mad mare minds. Lessons can be learned from these ponies.

Seems like it's somewhat smooth sailing from here onwards, perhaps by the 3rd quarter of the moon it shall be sunnier ahead than it is currently, the clouds shall dissipate and there will be a golden glow before long.
That's it for todays forecast.

A weird old prick insulted me today with the nonsensical stock insult "you think you know things but you don't. Uh... *points to head* knowledge" right after I fixed his computer for him. Clearly I fucking do know things because I just fixed his fucking computer for free. I'm not mad, I was surprised. Still surprised. You'd think a guy like that would want to be a holier man considering his age. He's related to a friend of mine who asked for help today with this. I don't think I gave the old fart any excuse to get butthurt at me but there are many reasons why his generation loves niggers. Oh, those wacky pseuds. They'll never change.

While an interesting starting point and not necessarily wrong.
At the essence of what he's talking about is the way anything enters or leaves the mind.
His claim is that the mind is an immune system for unverifiable ideas. Once someone is compromised other bad ideas go in.
From my experience the mind is akin to an ecological powerhouse. The thoughts and ideas and perceptions occupy that area.
Suffice to say you do have at the minimum some amount of influence in that jungle area. Some people can do more there than others. Once cognizant anyone could start doing some interesting self change. The automatic (subconscious, unconsious) process can be improved with being taught to be allowed to act in your collective self interest with the updated priorities to go against stupid decisions.

Wishful thinking does jack shit. For this more relevantly wishful thinking is an exercise in disempowerment for everything.
That's different from ignorance or not having the information/knowldge due to it being inaccessible.
The other claim that a bad filter would cause malfunctions is also somewhat true.
And the third combined claim is that self reflection is typically not done to one's own mind garden. That's due to the effect of manually agreeing the whatever is true even if that's not the case.
The problem is his assertion of what is true upon others, Astrology has fucktons of hacks and cheats. Much of the same information is derived from the social security number doesn't help. On Astrology Planetary influence where secret knowledge is useful for various projects.
For flat Earth? That's a conspiracy being a conspiracy theory. It is (((their))) goto choice for discrediting areas of knowledge (true or false). Due to overwhelming amounts of information pointing why it's false, to even consider it or to disprove is a waste of resources. It is then used as character assassination.

It's a fine attempt for what it is. The examples could use work. The means and depth of knowledge could use work. As a compilation showing how one has barriers for their mind, it's fine. The attempt is outside worthy. Once more I'm only basing it off of the video clip.

The opposite conjecture for why the mind has a reason to disregard everything when it knows it has everything is quite interesting as well.

It wasnt meant to be exhaustive nor the 'final word' on the phenomenon, but it does raise an interesting point about belief systems (specifically those based on interpretation, conjecture, and individual opinion).

The idea being, the more spurious the belief system - regardless of the conscious intent of the individual - the more susceptible the person becomes to ideas that are comparably and/or increasingly fallible. And yes, it also pertains to the rejection of contrary evidence (something I assume needs no example on the political world et al).
The more damning detail is the probability(certainty?) that this proclivity is being actively (((used))) to further erode at the cognitive capacity of society.
The takeaway is that critical thinking (sometimes maligned as 'negativity') is an absolutely essential skill and practice, the neglect of which can literally impair a person's ability of critical thinking. I can think of countless examples of this phenomenon at play, bother to its perpetuity and the symptoms observable in behavior.
Tl;dr Critical thinking is like a muscle that can either be developed or allowed to atrophy.

Does anyponer know what the most well-accepted interpretation of quantum physics is today? Is it still the Copenhagen Interperetation? Reducing reality to consciousness and viewing the world from the viewpoint of probabilistic wavefunctions has really helped open my mind up to juggling a lot of possibilities at the same time.

For instance, the flat earth theory. It's not, to me, a question of whether or not it's true, just how probably true or untrue it is, it is in a state of superposition of true and untrue. To take it further, very much of empirical data, if not all of it, is based on statistical analysis, IIRC, which would mean there's still a statistically impossible (as in so improbable that the scientific method would more likely have to be bust to accommodate it and the chance is patently negligible) chance that gravity doesn't exist and none of the scientific "facts" we have accrued over centuries really help to explain anything whatsoever, that science is totally wrong about everything it's ever claimed. That would be along the lines of Hume's Problem of Induction, if I'm not mistaken, please pardon me I have not read Hume yet, but intend to get to him eventually, but which is something that I can mention has hamstrung efforts to prove that science is making progress for quite a long time.

I wouldn't say the guy's wrong in the video. Attaching oneself too closely to anything has shown to be detrimental to my well being, at least in my own experience, and meditation has helped me quite a lot in simply forgetting things and starting from scratch if need be. To a helpful degree, anyway.

ITT: We post artists, songs, albums, and discuss the merits and shortcomings of various musical projects. The music discussed need not necessarily be right wing, as there is currently a thread on /mlpol/ housing discussion and updates regarding that.

Attached is the latest /mu/-core chart I could find, but that hardly means the thread needs to be restricted to discussing movements made in the last couple decades.

As any proper metalhead could clearly see, I'm not very well versed in brutality, I just liked the meme idea and the colors (wish Rainbow Explosion had some green in his hair though, the background could be a bit darker as well for a bit less of a stark contrast[?]). Also you should listen to Animals as Leaders if you don't already, they're pretty good, and if some poner comes by and likes metal please post some facemelting albums, I could stand to delve into that genre a bit more. I've heard Opeth is pretty good, but I never could get into them. Maybe I can take another look.

Come to think of it, Dillinger Escape Plan was something I could find agreeable to my tastes back when I listened to a lot of Math Rock, but I was really looking more for something more purely, bleakly, ragefully Metal. Guess I can start there for now, anyway.

No, however Little Dark Age >>3630 is extremely gothic and the sonic embodiment of the rended heart of the White man. It's so white, in fact, that it makes me want to buy eyeliner and move into the Castle of the Two Sisters and marry Limey and get haunted by Flutterbat and take long and lonesome walks in misty graveyards and have questionable relations with her sisters every time I listen to it.

Another from the chart, Illinois -- stylized "Illinoise," one of Sufjan Stevens' -- features complex arrangements, an in-depth history of the state in question, Christian themes, the blending of many genres across many songs, lyrics that might as well be poetry, and surprisingly somewhat of a hipster singer-songwriter aesthetic that's not distasteful, at least to me. Rather bittersweet as a whole, this one is, with high highs and a very low low. In case you ever wanted to visit Illinois, listening to the soul of the place ought to do just as well.
