  1. Life goal: I want to get into reading Why? I am naturally inclined to learn and actually enjoy knowing about new things / things in general ^Sam Vaknin's trifecta of fiction "portraying the totality of human psychology" (paraphrased) Researching, writing: - Underlining things (Joseph Campbell) - Color-coded notecard system (Robert Greene)
  2. Life is a battleground, like Jung said. No other way around it. Nonduality lies in the innermost state of things, but I'm agnostic about it. DMT couldn't save starving children in Africa, oppressed people in wartime conditions, people extorted by psychopaths and narcissists. Love could... perhaps save us from fear. But what is love? Is it more than an ache in the heart? How do we keep that love inside of us all the time?
  3. Life is meaningless. Love isn't.
  4. Ni Ti Fi Te (Se-Fi) Se Ne? More to come What is Ne? Ti-Ne= kant How the heck does one get started with kant?
  5. Leo's not a psychopath. Just take a look at his facial expressions, the dude seems like an emotional guy. There sure are a lot of psychopaths and narcissists on YouTube, but he doesn't strike me as one, at least not in a full-fledged way. Contrast his face to the one by the convicted gang leader/killer in the "shakedown in Santa fe" documentary - it's quite chilling tbh. That dude lacked affect (emotionality) when mentioning the murders alleged to him at the time.
  6. Psychopathology is appealing because these people tend to be confident.
  7. Socratic method maybe
  8. Go full steam at your target, but NEVER disregard your heart and mind. "Always work on the hearts and minds of others" - Robert Greene Sad to say but emotions govern life much more than reason does. Reason belongs in books and action, but not in the trajectory of our lives - which is utterly unreasonable.
  9. I will not be distracted by the evil (in me and others). McKenna - subversion. Martin Butler - understanding, focus, reason.
  10. Ideology is in itself an evil. I know that I myself could sometimes be easily drawn to creating ideologies around what I stand for. Also, my lack of responsibility = it's probably careless. Not evil, but careless. Perhaps not loving myself is an evil though. Courage is good. Assertiveness is good, as long as it's not crazy / aggressive. But yea, responsibility is a part of the path, if we're to call anything as that. Clarity itself is a good. Entitlement is not. Really, the path will come to those who want to take it. And by no means is it an easy path. Perhaps this "path" is something that inherently reflects a fundamental nature of the human spirit... if such thing exists at all. The path of good- honest, open, caring, kind, truthful, strong, courageous. Elements include integration, individuation, constant knowledge really. All knowledge. That's what sets it apart from everything else. The archetype of the good man is not unfamiliar to the basic instincts of the human being. It's integrative, rather than avoidant, because integration is closer to transcendence than anything else. Transcendence is a strong word - but who's limiting us really?
  11. The only way to defeat evil is to integrate it. It's a bottomless pit, so be careful. It also might be better not to look into the abyss alone. Or is it? Is man powerful enough not to be consumed by evil? Headspace might be the answer, baby
  12. Consumed by life's pain and evils - psychosis? Is psychosis the true abyss? Sam Vaknin seems to think so. Psychopathology is better looking so society rewards them. To the individuals, don't just be a bystander. Stand up to the evil, stand up to injustice. It's not black and white - depends on the situation. But evil is evil. Evil must be contained, or it will contaminate you. The human mind is a maze. Find yourself. Know yourself. Be yourself.
  13. Lies are evil. If you claim expertise in something you know nothing about, you are doubtlessly evil. Irl this may be a bit different, but perhaps only because we so quickly get impressed by strong personalities. So a perception problem, but doesn't change the consequences of your actions. The consequences of our actions = what so many of us don't wanna hear about. Hence the success of industries like the new agers, the self-help guys, and the law of attraction stuff. I know life is hard. Learning is the only way. Hence your faux-expertise are a form of evil.
  14. I feel like every single one of us is a "problem of the world". No point in using generalizations. The only "good" is "good action". Firm boundaries, kindness and empathy (especially towards oneself), constant learning.
  15. Boundaries. Ignore the toxic person. Ugh.
  16. Garbage in, garbage out. Evil resides in everybodys hearts, or shall I say - minds. It can escape it anytime.
  17. You ask yourself - "am I saying this to put myself above him or her, or am I saying this because I sincerely believe in it." There's a reason why "fake it till you make it" is such a popular catchprase in society lol.
  18. Find what you like doing and be really good at it. That's the typical template for an archetypal hero anyway.
  19. Probably not, because human traits are acquired through society. A psychopath operates through deceit, superficial charm, exploitation, etc none of which cannot be learned without the rest of us.
  20. Rules of the Game: "I can calculate the motions of heavenly bodies, but not the madness of people." — Isaac Newton "Human behavior is the potential and expressed capacity (mentally, physically, and socially) of human individuals or groups to respond to internal and external stimuli throughout their life. While specific traits of one's personality, temperament, and genetics may be more consistent, other behaviors change as one moves between life stages—i.e., from birth through adolescence, adulthood, and, for example, parenthood and retirement. Behavior is also driven, in part, by thoughts and feelings, which provide insight into individual psyche, revealing such things as attitudes and values. Human behavior is shaped by psychological traits, as personality types vary from person to person, producing different actions and behavior. Extraverted people, for instance, are more likely than introverted people to participate in social activities like parties. The behavior of humans (just as of other organisms) falls upon a spectrum, whereby some behaviors are common while others unusual, and some are acceptable while others beyond acceptable limits. The acceptability of behavior depends heavily upon social norms and is regulated by various means of social control, partly due to the inherently conformist nature of human society in general. Thus, social norms also condition behavior, whereby humans are pressured into following certain rules and displaying certain behaviors that are deemed acceptable or unacceptable depending on the given society or culture. Human behavior is studied by the social sciences, which include psychology, sociology, economics, and anthropology. In sociology, behavior may broadly refer to all basic human actions, including those that possess no meaning—actions directed at no person. Behavior in this general sense should not be mistaken with social behavior. Social behavior, a subset of human behavior that accounts for actions directed at others, is concerned with the considerable influence of social interaction and culture, as well as ethics, social environment, authority, persuasion, and coercion." (Wikipedia) "The human condition is all of the characteristics and key events that compose the essentials of human existence, including birth, growth, emotion, aspiration, conflict, and mortality. This is a very broad topic which has been and continues to be pondered and analyzed from many perspectives, including those of religion, philosophy, history, art, literature, anthropology, psychology, and biology. As a literary term, "the human condition" is typically used in the context of ambiguous subjects, such as the meaning of life or moral concerns." (Wikipedia)
  21. Have something really meaningful going on with your life. Something that matters to you truly. This is what oftentimes people realize during their psych trips imo (me included).
  22. Infinity = things not being still. Infinite possibilities, guaranteed that you know what to do and how to do it (like this man with his molotov cocktails he saw from a game).
  23. Feel deeply with your body. Eat the "egg" so to speak of your negative emotions, like fear,, anger, strong intense ones. Youd feel that you now have a relationship with your own body after this.
