Poll: What motivates your behavior?

Postby Ichthus77 » Sat Jul 30, 2022 2:22 am

See poll above. You can pick 1, 2, or all 3.

If C: What is the reason for your joy?

If not C in every circumstance: Did you lose/forget the reason for your joy when your behavior is not motivated by C?

Can you give a “for instance” of the much more and how it doesn’t fit into one of the three options?

Not violating the pleasurable exclusive access problem while being in pleasure forever.
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.

so, 1, because you are hypothetically in denial that you can have 3, given 1 (displeasure) — even though, if you didn’t rub it in or hoard basic needs from people, people would all be happy for your exclusive relationship

This is fucking insane. I don’t know why you tell yourself the lie that when you’re are happy, that everyone is happy for you.

Ichthus.

Other people exist besides you. This isn’t a Christian hallmark movie where everyone is a zombie slave to your love story.

People have desire besides you.

People are different than you.

Maybe more than one person can’t live without you.

That seems to not bother you.

You use the LORD to ignore it.

It’s not what I’m trying to say, it’s what I am saying.

The universe - the multiverse - revolves around no single being.

You are so conceited, that you delude yourself into believing that the entire multiverse should accept yours and only your passions alone... otherwise, they are abominably jealous.

People don’t work that way.

If black holes are “born” in fractal patterns because the universe is one, and we can’t get through them to verify physically but only with other means (kinda like doing history using abduction), then yes he said it right. Universe=multiverse & vice versa.

Fuck you. There’s no way you’d do that for another person. Look at you. A simpleton holding on to the golden rule.

Let’s give you a hypothetical. You must always remove yourself from a relationship if someone else wants it as much as you do. Thus, you’ll always get relationships that you want.

I think you’re abusing the golden rule.

I think that you think that if you sacrifice those relationships that you’re forcing the universe to give you a better one.

I don’t give a shit what Jesus taught, but I do know someone gaming the system for a loophole.

Ichthus. My primary training is how to send beings to hell realms. I was taught mercilessly by the demons themselves.

I can spot a fake from across all existence.

You’re a fake.

Do I want to send you to hell? No.

Ichthus. You’re getting desperate. Hell can smell it on you.

I just need to get the fuck out of here. You handle this shit. I’ll leave behind a hyperdimensional mirror copy of myself to edjudicate you.

You’ll be given a choice. My patch or this world. I can’t make you innocent.

What do you want to know?

I’m giving every being their own universe to reflect and project reality in the way that suits them personally forever, without having an actual being that they can actually hurt... forever.

Since there are an infinite number of beings in existence; there’s an inexhaustible supply of entertainment. You can even use the reincarnation feature if you get bored.

You’ll be able to hyperdimansionally reflect all existence. An infinite number of dimensions at once.

Right now, I’m patching universe security so that nobody can sneak into your universe, while giving me the option to come back here as a hyperdimensional copy to pull you out of a universe that is bothering you.

The magnitude of the entire patch is way too complicated to type out.

Just know that there are enough raw materials in existence to keep you happy forever.
