Re: Just wanted to chat about some deep things with some intelligent, well read individuals who enjoy thinking out of the box!
I have many others to respond too, sorry I have not had much time to be on the last day or so.

The movie "Her" was better than I thought it would be, kinda makes you think. But as far as new movies go, "Lone Survivor" is amazing.

But I will get to many more responses hopefully soon, some all the way back on pages 3 and 4 if I remember correctly. Thanks everyone for sharing, and if there are any more assholes or trolls, let me know so I can bane them from here.

So, to start out, just incase anyone wants to play, what do you intend to get out of life, or why do you think we, or you personally, are here?

Or, what are your ideas of life and this and other dimensions, universes, etc?
 Quoting: Patrick Bateman


Me, personally?

To destroy all of these false systems that are built on untruths and/or deceptive manipulation, etc., like "science" and financial systems.

Good enough?


My ideas on other "dimensions" and things cause a lot of butthurt. ;) Not sure if many are ready for any of it.

We live in a world (largely) full of delusional idiots that would rather have their heads buried in the sand, only their heads were more or less forced into that sand by other delusional idiots.


It is quite sad, but very real.

I also agree with much of this, thanks for posting!

...

What was that particular essay called you mentioned the title did you not?
 Quoting: Balloons


The Myth of Sisyphus by Albert Camus. you can find it online in audio or readable versions, you do not even need to dl it, but many places you can for free. It is about 100 pages, pretty quick read, but awesomely thought provoking!
 Quoting: Patrick Bateman


Just looked it up, 120 pages. It is definitely worth it though if anything like this interests you! I love his view point and how he turns it around into being good, while most people focus on it being bad in a way. Never mind I will not try to quickly explain, read it! :)

Tbh, I have never met anyone who has read it outside of my Existentialism class, and I have asked a lot of people I figured would have, a couple even with ivy league philo grad degrees, lol.
 Quoting: Patrick Bateman


It used to be rather popular when I was young. Young people read Camus and watched Bergman movies and talked about Sartre but didn't actually read Being and Nothingness, which was really a big mind f*ck anyway and adopted existential ennui as a way to get laid and get high. It was actually pretty depressing.

People don't read as much as they used to, and universities tend to encourage reading analysis and criticism rather than original works.
 Quoting: waterlily


I love Camus, Satyre, Dostoyovski, some Kafka, lots of kierkegaard, and many others etc. Existentialism was by far my fav class that was not physics, chem or bio..

Also, nothing is about if it is "good enough" for anyone else, the ? is if it is good enough for you.

That's true.

I'm very "mean" and facetious sometimes, at least it will appear that way. I don't enjoy seeing an overall lack of critical thinking. And by this I also mean those who are allegedly "intelligent," as this is often a very dogmatic stance. Blind obedience to "something" for no good reason other than bad habit, or maintaining the "status quo" is not terribly "good" in the long run...

;) Many think this is my real name, lol.

Thanks for the references, they always make me laugh!

Also, when bored sometime,you can ask any question and generally get some very intelligent and wide-spread pov.

I have asked a few questions on here in this manner, and have had some very good results. Even if the objectof the thread was to pick at people's brains, play devils advocate, w/e.
