I wrote an essay https://byrd.im/on-language/

It’s in everyone’s best interest to take system design of computer networks out of greedy and possessive hands of software engineers, attempting a little revolution-like sleight of hand trick, that would allow anyone concerned with things like language, logic, and problem-solving—to easily learn about, or maybe even directly affect how things around them are run.

Actually, I don't really understand what your work is about. I was just writing an essay about web development recently and had to choose a topic. I looked at a site with free essays online https://sccis.org/ for work that students write and I wrote about web development methods. I wonder what you mean in your paper.

Good day everyone! In fact, I rarely have trouble writing essays and other academic papers. But there are times when I just don't have the opportunity to write an essay. In such cases, I prefer to use https://domypapers.com/ to write my essay. This approach helps me avoid problems with my studies and not have academic debts. I advise you to try this too.

I don't think logic can meta itself. While it's integral part of reality, it cannot encopass itself and beyond while still operating within itself.

In other words, I don't think it makes sense to ask a question like that.

The answer is blowing in the wind though so it's fine to ask, but just listen and instead of a question - you have an answer.

I've been getting my toes wet in philosophy for a couple days now, and I've figured out that I strongly associte with the idea of materialistic determinism. Who are some essential writers to familiarise myself to develop this new interest? I'm not opposed to having my views challenged.

Also, I'm kind of retarded, so I'd prefer some easier reads if possible.

I made a post with the same title, but decided to delete it and make a dumbed-down version of it:

> me interested in philosophy since young kid
> me wanting to write philosophy book
> me not wanting to read philosophy book
> me think is unnecessary to read all book, when one can grasp fundamental ideas and apply to other fields
> me unsure if must read philosophy book to seem legit in dialogues with others (+writing)
> me believes 10 tools more important/useful than 1000 books of information
> hence, me invest in tools over the years instead of reading
> me refer to philosophical branches, anyways (subconsciously) > resulting in on flowing discussions
> me not wanting a title in philosophy
> me wanting to speak in front of an audience in future
> me having million dollar dilemma - me arrogant for thinking = reading philosophy unnecessary? For me thinks most books are recycled ideas, like hero vs villain, meaning of life, God etc.
> me thinks - why reinvent the wheel, when me can roll.

Philosophy is idealism, which is the heart of malehood.

Philosophy is just adults complicating things to create an articial product called maturity.

"the world is filled with suffering" is just as much of an anthropocentric and obviously empirical viewpoint as believing that "life has a greater meaning", for me anti natalism immeadiatly falls apart at its first step

Well yeah, of course the view is based on the human experience. No one is saying it's "objectively right" in some metaphysical sense about the universe as a whole, people don't really try to say that about anything.

McKenna tries too hard to come up with a valid argument as to why humans have self-awareness that he gets lost in his own mental masturbation.

I want to believe in antinatalism as it would mean I have nothing to fear about death and that’s really appealing to me since I’m quite afraid of dying but I haven’t found any of the arguments convincing.

Red pill me on antinatalism, convince me it would have been better if I was never born.

I really think that a lot of wisdom can be obtained through considering the anti-natalist view without actually becoming one. I accept that life is inherently painful and that by having a child you are subjecting them to pain they would not otherwise have to deal with. I also accept that I want to have kids, and the awareness of point A will not stop me. The end result is planning to have kids but recognizing the ordeal I'm putting them through and being very thoughtful about how I raise them.

Basically, I do not intend to act like they should thank me profusely just for bring them to life and not letting them starve until they're 18. I know that human beings need a hell of a lot more to be reasonably happy and free from suffering, and it's not fair to act like it's entirely on them to get it for themselves. I will be responsible for giving them the problem of scarcity, thus I have a considerable obligation to help them deal with it.

Anonymous 22/10/30(Sun)02:34 No. 15165 ID: 9e90b6


I think the original post was more about OPs stance on death rather than the ethical implications of having kids, I think we're side tracking here.

Anyway, looking at life as a patchwork of either painful of happy experiences and trying to weight it on that basis is absolute insanity.
No, life is not inherently painful, and its not inherently happy. Its more complex than that and cannot be racionalized in such simplistic ways

You're not subjecting your future kids to torture by bringing them to the world. Hopefully your kids wont see life so black and white, hopefully they understand its many shades of grey
