  1. @Shawn Philips I'm asking. Where have you seen a conspiracy theory here? Let me use my mind as I prefer, thanks.
  2. @TheSomeBody but if the vaccination line doesn't affect a thing in the green line
  3. Can someone explain me why reported data on vaccines seems to say there's not even a correlation between the number of new cases, and therefore death cases, and the number of administered vaccines? Please take a look at this page, especially at the section "Country-level Covid-19 vaccination", and explore the various countries. It seems there's no correlation going on when you consider many different countries, so that the progression of the number of cases could probably be due to the various political decisions on how to restrict movement, etc... At the world level the advancement of the infection seems to be unaffected by the appliance of vaccines on the popolation. I've tried to ask WHO about it but it seems to be a one-way only communication with it. So, since I'm not part of any kind of specialised forum and here there's quite a variety of people, I ask to you. Here's a screenshot of it.
  4. I'm not talking philosophically, I'm talking to you about You.
  5. I agree. Cult thinking is not something that can happen to a group every ten or so. It's a natural tendency of human minds when they group together. We're all minded here. Maybe just a few transcended their own mind. So yes, cult thinking is something that we should constantly pay attention to.
  6. @johnlocke18 who is this other youtuber who can perform miracles on a camera?
  7. @Blackhawk Trust me. You like suffering and you don't want the truth. The truth looks boring to you and suffering makes you feel like a hero on his journey. It's a huge joke once you realise it, and you'll realise it when you'll get too tired to keep going. You only played with yourself: by forgetting you're on stage the story feels much more real. All of what you're experiencing is what you want to experience. Just keep this in the back of your mind while you keep playing, you don't have to stop playing the games you like to play. I mean, if you pretend you don't know it then it's much more dramatic, more juicy.
  8. @Blackhawk It's all a funny thing. Your question, my effort to answer you, other people answering you. You say you want something that you don't want and we all try to give you something you don't want but you keep saying you want. Our answers are worst than your question. The most sensical answer would be "f*ck off!" (please don't take it as an offence, I don't mean it)
  9. And there was any problem about it back in those periods? Or maybe the problem still was that you didn't get to it. If so then you were expecting it: you were trying to not try, in order to get it. You can't trick your mind with your mind so to transcend your mind. You see, if you really stopped trying you wouldn't care at all if you got enlightened or not. What is all this glamor about enlightenment? Why do you even want it? Who would you be without wanting it?
  10. It's not hard to achieve, it's impossible! The very act of trying to achieve it is indeed a running away from it. "Getting rid of the ego is the biggest ego trip", Alan Watts once said. Stop trying then. That is a very fucked up mind, let me tell you from my own experience I'm not judging you. It's quite twisted. Maybe it's a good thing, who knows, maybe you'll reach the extreme before leaving it completely, many did it that way. It's all a matter of what you want ultimately. But don't fuck up with psychedelics too much anyways, preferably. Why are you looking for it anyway? I'm speaking from my own experience, trying to achieve enlightenment is a purely material thing. It's just a political game. Try to be honest with yourself instead and ask yourself why you want it, would that make you a better person? Would you tell the whole world you got enlightened? Yes? No? Honesty pays here. The truth is, behind the veil, you're looking for something else. Maybe recognition from others? Identify that something else and find the most sane way to achieve it. You're not done with this life yet.
  11. Not really. It's true you're probably not going to find any truth, nor a great amount of open-minded and wise people. However it teaches you to think critically and to doubt your own ideas, especially if you consider them to be the Truth, the one that others don't have. You might say they don't teach to think critically. This is true to a certain degree, and mostly true in all of the other fields, but it's really the case with philosophy, since you have to review and understand the whole of thought systems that we went through in millennia. This forces you to compare the different perspectives and escape for a moment the one in which you grew up with. There's not a best perspective on things, all of perspectives throughout history were just a succession of different trends, just like fashions. So it allows you (by actually forcing you, since you have to get the grades) to challenge your own perspective and detach yourself from the ones that you're identifying with.
  12. Relationships are the perfect example for applying spiral dynamics. Two different stages can't go together. There must be a large part of the two personalities that is shared on the same stage. No way a Blue can fit with an Orange or a Red or whatever. Even Blue and Green can't fit together, the Green one will look at the Blue and see how limited it is. Even Yellow, who can understand the previous stages, would get bored with them. There might be sexual/physical attraction but it's not going to work as a proper relationship.
  13. @GrandeOrso Oh man, it seems like I've written that. My suggestion to you is to do something. Whatever. If you don't know what to do yet do something, if you have no idea of what to do at all, start working anywhere, in a McDonald for example, and save some money for you future trips (in both senses ). Don't spend your time merely thinking about what you have to do in your life, I've done that for years and it's wasted time. Experience something, you'll feel what you like and you'll plan better next time. Do an Erasmus working project (probably you can't in Switzerland) or something similar, for a year or so. I started studying philosophy as well, when I was your age. Then left and came back again, now I'm finishing it. It's okay, but I doubt you're going to find your life purpose there, as you said it's "still academia". But who knows...
  14. There's motion inside motion inside motion inside motion... This is to say that subatomic particles move in the aether or spacetime (you name it) and this spacetime is discrete in time, of which the minimum extension of it is Planck's time. Particles pulse at their own frequency, of course lower than 1/Planck's time, and the frequency depends on the kind of particle. Neither the "Planck's frequency" nor least of all particles frequency are infinitesimal, just the shortest time frame possible. Subatomic particles might be pulsing, but they disappear in a very short amount of time because they're not stable and are not a semi-autonomous system like real particles are. The simplest kind of a real particle is the hydrogen atom: electrons don't pulse, it's current flowing; photons pulse but it's incorrect to call it a particle since it's a perturbation, so these are not properly particles - atoms are perturbations as well, but stationary; subatomic particles are perturbations too but unstable on their own and therefore short-living. Particle is a convenient and comfortable term for defining these phenomena, but there's actually no particle, in the sense of separate matter, in the universe. It's a gigantic fluid pulsing and vibrating in musical harmony.
  15. @eaaaeaeae It's true. Each moment is static in itself and movement is illusory: continuous movement is what is perceived when the finite observer's rate of perception is lower than the rate of change of the observed. For example, same thing happens with sampling sounds: we sample music usually at 44.1Khz, which allows us to sample to the slightest change of sound that we humans can perceive. Digital music is not continuous but discrete, but we can't hear it discrete. This is a universal metaphysical law: same dynamic works with "solid" objects or consciousness itself. It's mathematical: a polygon with a number of sides that tends to infinite is a circle, if you were to have infinite+1 resolution rate you could see it as a polygon. Quantum physics supports the conception of time as discrete as well. It can be actual in experience, but only in relation to another movement. You can experience static moments if the observed is slower than your rate of perception, pretty much like watching a video slowed down 30x. So absolute stillness is not an experience, since there's no difference between the observer and the observed.
