  1. From a technical game perspective, TLOU 2 was much better than the original, especially on the second half of the game, and the game mechanics are well balanced. Map design and detail is breathtaking, and difficulty settings are great, of course not in comparison to Dark Souls. All this praise is coming from some bias as I play lots of games in the past and occasionally do today. From a storytelling perspective, there's nothing new here, as the storyline is similar to Quinton Tarantino's pulp fiction, where there are moments you spend in the present, then some scenes you jump into the past with some of the playable characters, then back to the present. A good chunk of the second half is also played more through the perspective of the new character more than one of the original characters, which due to the medium of the game, provides a unique experience to handling different perspectives and an unusually nice pacing to the game. The last bit of the game an entirely new story arc takes place in the future almost doing a reverse pulp fiction to one of the original characters, which is both a jarring but nice plot twist. The creativity put into the story was quite refreshing. Also a bias of mine, as I study a lot of stories and making them. Spiritual/psychological perspective, it was a gold mind. So many pointers in the game, but mainly the many reactions of the division in the fan base was insightful, as I got some insights from their views on this game, especially after they played through it. It's not that surprising to me, this game feels like it's meant for a more mature, sophisticated ego rather than an immature one. Also the game has spiritual themes and symbolism in it that is quite good. I almost went meta from just observing the fan base alone.
  2. @Guardian I was going to post this a few days ago. Yes, it is very hard to empathize and understand the Danish Foroe Islanders if some have a stage green to orange values system, have different cognitive and moral development, have different life experiences and have a different ego development, also have a shadow of stage red to purple values. While this is horrible, it pales in comparison to industrial levels of fishing of fish via super Trollers that use heavy nets that drag on the sea floors damaging corals. Also to fishing of sharks, roughly estimated to be around 220,000 a day from just Japanese fishing boats, not including other countries like China, Korea and other asuan countries that fish sharks. That's a huge number of sharks that are fished, yet there's still so many sharks in the ocean despite that many sharks killed, shows how big the oceans could really be.
  3. @Javfly33 Is it the tribe people being recorded, or the new agers that are trying them out and are new to that substance?
  4. @herghly Well, if the universe is a mind, and it is very similar to a human brain, with the left and right hemispheres, I could imagine there's a super intuition and super logic at work that probably makes it possible for such entities to have energy and psychic developments over time, in tandom to every culture and it's flow of time. It could be possible.
  5. Seriously? Wow, I didn't know that.
  6. @Sucuk Ekmek And that's because the Aztecs were a stage red/blue society with elements of stage purple worldview with their spiritual views and practices. Mainly it's where their at consciously speaking. However, evolution is intelligent, and they didn't last long anyways against the Spanish conquistadors that arrived, as they are more developed in different aspects of society, like technological warfare, more developed weaponry, more solid stage blue worldview
  7. Having trouble posting image with my phone so I'll state it instead. First part of psychopathy was above 81.5% average and score 3.3. The second part if psychopathy is 89.5% above average, also 3.3. Somehow I don't think the result is accurate. After completing the test, they also give a followup language test. I suggest to take that one too, because it basically tests what a strange word should mean to you, from two other words.
  8. I hsve taken the test, and answered each statement as quickly as I can, paused when the statement wasn't matched with my life experiences eo far. I also took the language test survey right after, which was even more surprising to me. https://openpsychometrics.org/tests/LSRP.php
  9. @Husseinisdoingfine Prove it.
  10. @Shiva99 Not enough context to give advice, like the kind of career you're in, the job offered, salary, time frame, how many hours, work days, previous job you did, what your colleague also did, what your old office is like. So, I'll list some following contexts later to give some substance to my suggestions with what you might've done:
  11. I have recently got news that Netflix was gonna make a documentary on Bob Ross, and am planning on watching it. Recently on the Hollywood news on my google feed they mentioned how the documentary was a bit biased and portrayed Bob Ross inc in a negative light. For those who have watched it, is this true? And what are you thoughts and takaways of the documentary? I'm highly resilient to spoilers, so do tell me what you thought about it. I will be watching it soon.
  12. @Leo Gura It's the return of the sun gazing seller. Mods!
  13. I can't wait to see how this relates to reincarnation.
  14. @taotemu It was good knowing you, through your posts though.
  15. Update: I had been doing some chi gong practices, and got Crysty to do some of them in one of our sessions. She and J managed to do a chi ball successfully, although the concentration was much higher than typical for me to do, because there's not just seeing her forms, but also seeing the chi ball and her chi ball as well.
  16. Brief context: I've experienced a haunting in my early childhood in Indonesia. The situation was resolved through various means my mother won't disclose on to which I didn't pry on. The experience isn't pleasent. The memory of that event is somewhat fresh in my mind. Roughly 15 years later, I've gone on vacation to Niagara Falls with my mother, father, older sister and brother in law. It's a beautiful place! Can't remember the name of the hotel we stayed but it had a Kegs restaurant in the middle. Anyways, we rented a joint room for, if I recall, 4 days, which both had two beds, a desk, table, mini fridge, tv, and distorted glass panels near the doors. In one morning, there she was, lying on the bed with me, what appeared to be a cute girl in her pajamas. A moment later, I realized the girl is semi-transparentish, blurry and I felt shock. Despite the shock I felt pleasent feelings in my chest. Throughout the days in Niagara Falls I felt confused yet pleasent with her presence around me. I could speak to her using my mind voice sometimes and she has this distinct 'cuteness' in her voice. It strangely felt like it was love at first sight. I remember actually putting some coins into this machine that was in the park used to measure if you're in love or not and it registered in my hand grips I'm in love. Sometimes she would be walking or sitting with me trying to speak to me, other times she would disappear. After me and my family returned to Montreal and my older sister and her husband returned to the UK that spirit girl kept visiting throughout my time there, and eventually she has stayed with me. 4 years later to present day she's now like a close friend. I struggled with perceiving her at first but I'm able to distinguish her form much better, from the shape to the colors. She also has more personality than before. One of my favorites is how she can be so random with her humor it's amazing. Despite her airy headed attitude she does share pieces of knowledge about situations and people I know that seemed nebulous but later made complete sense. The issues I'm just having are how do I go from here? Sometimes she does annoy me when I meditate. Odd enough, she sometimes copies me, even doing the meditation I'm doing. She also calls me by many nicknames which can be annoying but it's her. It's amazing that I'm able to experience this at all! I'm currently taking my time learning about the paranormal and if you guys have any advice to share when it comes to the paranormal please post. Also feel free to ask more about my childhood haunting. Also if you have any questions addressed to her feel free to ask because we've talked and she's ok with answering your questions. Thanks for reading!
  17. @coca Yikes, that's touth. While it's still true that most of red pill is BS, a few men here and there will have much more difficulty in dating and fucking, which might seem like it validates red pill, in fact it doesn't, it's complex and comes down to the man, and the few who suffer far more in this area of life. I hope you are not those few. Forget about dating and improve other aeeas of your life instead. Don't give these 'PUA red/black/blue pillers', or promiscuous women any more of your limited energy and time.
  18. And that makes ten threads criticising Leo.
  19. @coca Ok, that's nice to know. So, what do you really want from this thread?
  20. @Blackhawk The problem becomes double then. One, there could be some form of mental disorder at play to some degree, and they have formed an identity out of trolling and are maintaining that. Bais also factors in.
  21. @Breakingthewall Ok. I agree and disagree.
  22. @mandyjw Yes. There might also be other factors involved as well, like technology for storage and regulating meat consistently is more difficult back then. Other factors also can occur. Depending on which stage of development, and where you are at in ken Wilbur's integral theory modal, you can have many interpretations in this one context. For example, the pig meat being forbidden might also be because a rival tribes men cursed one of the followers of Islam, for stealing a pig, to be trampled by wild boars, and it came to be. Because of this, pig meat is outlawed because it means you are eating the vassal used by demons for that curse, basically eating something that killed one of your own. That's a stage purple magical thinking interpretation.
  23. @Breakingthewall I define non-existence as the same as nothingness, that which is before the big bang so to speak, and synonymous to the "void", because it's to avoid misunderstanding from where I'm coming from when I say non-existence. Firstly, from your point of view, you set the standard for your imagination to not be possible to imagine that reality was non-existence and suddenly existence emerges as a emergent property of non-existence. That, and not knowing how you define non-existence for you, makes this very hard to reply. Are you assuming that you can have 1 without first the 0? Secondly, while it's true that existence in now is undeniable, there are many factors involved in making that so, and other factors that could also make that not so. If you are faced with something horrible, can you deny and distract yourself from that? Thirdly, "if there is existence, there was never existence, due to the very nature of nonexistence(no exist)." is not accurate logic. the order is this instead: Non-existence=no exist, therefore, if true, therefore there is existence, which equals no existence. Even here, there is an error. This is like saying that 0=nothing, so if I see a 1, then there never was a 0, but that assumes existence of 0 came after 1, or there isn't a 0. fourthly, another logical contradiction. You claim that most importantly, there never will be non-existence because the current existence is not temporary, but then you say it doesn't last long. Are you referring to existence not lasting long? If you are, then existence is impermanent, which eventually means that existence itself will die, and become nothing. If not, and you're referring to non-existence as temporary, when what you're claiming is that the very bed rock of all of existence, nothingness, the void, is temporary, and not permanent, which contradicts current spiritual teachings about the world, and the nature of no-self as a temporary thing, which contradicts. In conclusion, I think we still need to contemplate non-existence if there's still difficulty in grasping non-existence. P.S. The main problem when I contemplate non-existence, is that I run into immediate trouble, that I'm surrounded, in me, and around me, with existence, or 'something(s)'. So many somethings, somethings that cause and effect other things, and many somethings that correlate with other things, with little evidence of non-existence. I see a lot of conflation with non-existence too, that it's also synonymous with illusion of the self, or the illusion of the world due to maybe the impermanence. Is this the case?
