What actually is BULLSHIT?

12 posts in this topic

Well, I watched Leo's video on "mankind is the bullshiting animal." and the whole time I was trying to make sense of what bullshit actually is. Is it just untruthfulness, or devilry. It would help if there was a general list of what bullshit refers to.  If I'm trying to question my own bullshit what am I actually questioning.  I feel bullshit encompasses a lot. Can someone give me an example of how they uncovered bullshit in their life?

@Cody_Atzori To me, a clear case of bullshitting was when I used to lie to myself as an attempt to feel better in the short-term.

In a nutshell, it's any unconscious behavior/thought.

The word "bullshit" is verbally excreted from the mouth of humans when their internal information digesting system can't process a piece of information that has been consumed.

I was interpreting it as something broader than simply lying or narrow unconsciousness.

Basically everything that humans do is built upon layers and layers of contrivance, of abstraction, of interpretation, of artifice - fundamentally, of bullshit.

Bullshitting = deluding

Animals go directly from point A (hunger for example) to point Z (food).

Human beings go from point A to point Z through all of the alphabet and even more.

Don't think of bullshitting as a bad thing though. That'll make you suffer. Think of it as a magic show.

Search "George Carlin and bullshit".

He's got some great examples of social bullshit.

But of course that's just the obvious tip of the ice berg.
