I see people as illusions

The origins of the imperative, "know thyself", are lost in the sands of time, but the age-old examination of human consciousness continues here.

You have no idea of the work and risk involved in being a nihilist.


Not impressed. You know what’s harder? Turn the other cheek and anything you ask of me I’ll give it to you.

I don’t even do that shit.
The purpose of life is to give everyone individually what they always want at the expense of no being - forever.

The biggest problem of life is the, “hey, I don’t want this to be happening” problem for everyone.

"Nihilism is a fucking luxury dude! Enjoy your luxury."

No but I like how you always take the worst possible conceivable thing mentioned by someone and then say 'that's nothing dude!', like your own suffering is indescribably terrifying and inhuman.

'Bro, I was a POW in Vietnam and had to fight with a great white shark in a pit everyday over a rotten chicken leg that was infected with salmonella, or I'd starve!'

'That's nothing, dude. I've lived eighty trillion years and been through eleven memory wipes and I have to decide every day whether or not I'm gonna send everybody on earth to hell for eternity!'

'Damn, my bad dude. I thought I had it rough.'

All that means is that you’ve learned how to kill a thread without dropping the mic on anyone. (That’s an insult btw).

An illusion with the capacity to kill a thread?

Aw bless! "Am I a badass?"

Listen. I have watched your videos - some of them. I have seen how you interact with your cat. You appear to treat him (George?) as your equal. That would be the sane thing to do.

The voices! Have you considered writing down what the voices say? The nature of your experience is your experience. Such is the reality for each of us. Let's not give in to the temptation to allow others to label us as insane, simply because the nature of our experience is beyond their experience! You class yourself as a genius and yet you happily accept the label 'insane'!

But, hat's off. Nice touch. You've gotten people to keep you supplied with tobacco and booze and somewhere to live.

Fair play. I can see why you might label yourself as a genius...

Spare a thought for the rest of us.

How about - just a thought... How about you make a note of what the voices advise you. On this forum, you speak of your experiences dating back many, many years - surely at some point in your long and varied history you must have bumped into someone who was unable to comprehend the nature of their own experience. Perhaps someone who heard voices. Did it never occur to you (given your 'then' experience) to advise that person to make a note of what the voices were telling them. With all of your millions of years of experience, I am surprised that you did not demand that that person should: "Stop bleating, and don't be so selfish - (I am sure they would have complained of their suffering) - the voice you hear could be providing you with the answers to all of mankind's woes. Remain vigilant."

Nope, I know what you would have said. "Disregard the voice, block it out. You should listen to what people tell you. You're insane. Best you drink and smoke yourself into oblivion. Hey! Look after yourself, and make sure you look after your pets... You treat em with respect.... My turn at the bar, what's everyone avin?"
That's what you'd have said, way back then.

But, again, fair play to you. In this day and age, you have a roof over your head - folks supplying you with alcohol and tobacco. I must confess, I am a little surprised that someone in your exalted position does not smoke a little weed.

Honestly, I wish you well.

I hope soon, (pray.... far more effective than hope) that a young lady catches your attention, and you fall in love. It would be nice if you have children together, whereupon you will personally realise that you, hitherto, had not properly experienced real love. Let's not go into the emotions that one experiences with grandchildren.

I envy you, you have so much to look forward to (if you haven't previously experienced it!) :)

If I have offended, Ec, please forgive me. It was not deliberate. I am, as MagsJ hinted, somewhat passive aggressive!

Thanks MagsJ - hadn't previously realized! :)

I see dead people, and they are NOT illusions.
They tell me they are not.
I believe them. Why would the dead lie?

Embrace the god of Nil....the only truly omnipotent none.
Don't be scared that life has no meaning and no purpose, not like I was, before I came here and was taught a lesson.
Be a convert.

What I transcended...
There is no purpose, make one.
Life is full of meaning, see it.
I'm over it now. I've ..."matured" into the no-body I always was.
Spiritually sailing across the sand dunes in deserts of the real...with my no-foreskin buddies.
Oyve!
To every man upon this earth
Death cometh soon or late.
And how can man die better
Than facing fearful odds,
For the ashes of his fathers,
And the temples of his gods

I’ll tell you... derleydoo

If I had to choose between psychic battles or physical battles, I’d choose psychic ones everytime.

In fact we do that on these boards as well.

As a message to everyone on these boards ...

Don’t fucking lie to me... when the psychic battles start, I didn’t know what the fuck was going on and neither did you.

I just happen to be a person through selective pressure who excelled.

The way (part of it) is that I gave everyone equal standing. I literally defeated people by giving them all an equal voice ... like the cat.

Yeah. I’m inviting 18 people for dinner. I have to rotate every year because of how many friends I have.

It takes me a month to prepare my birthday.

It’s the only day I celebrate.
