    Not if I reject the idea of a subject-object relationship, actually.

    This is really brilliant.

    I am going to teach myself to be this good at being so stupid so cleverly.

    why do you accept the idea of subjectivity?


    THERE HE GOES AGAIN

    ACTUALLY I THINK HE DID IT TWICE HERE JUST NOW

    NOTICE I'M NOT SAYING ANYTHING IN RETURN, BUT I AM BEING REALLY LOUD. IS ANYONE CONVINCED I'M SAYING ANYTHING? PERHAPS I'M SAYING SOMETHING BY ADMITTING I'M NOT ACTUALLY SAYING ANYTHING. MAYBE THAT'S THE BEST PHILOSOPHERISIPHIZING OF ALL.

    No, dude, you're putting too much into it. It's just masturbating. You go like this:
    "I reject you."

    You can't reject me if I reject the rejection-rejectee relationship.

    One of the conclusions I've arrived at thus far in my limited experiences with philosophy, is that philosophy is a way to cope, a way to order the world into something intelligible, or to perceive the world as the intelligible thing it actually is. Some people philosophize to cope with a world that appears chaotic and senseless. I think this makes sense. It's helping me.

    Developing a coherent philosophy is a part of most therapies.

    I like Stoicism. When I was a kid I thought it meant like Spartan badassery, but it seems more like being a cheerful person when you can manage is the basis.

    息も絶える環状線沿いで
    色褪せた星と 闇空の下
    いつのまに僕は 自分らしさと
    生き方のレシピ 探しているんだろう?

    素晴らしさという忘れ物
    取り戻しに行こう くたびれた夢
    幼少の頃 砂に埋めた様に
    十年後の僕に この歌を捧げよう

    笑って泣いて歌って 花になれ
    咲き誇れ いつか 光溢れ
    歯痒くても きっと 受け止めるよ
    未来は気にせずに

    数えきれないほど 何度も
    君の名を呼んだ
    何処かで微笑んでるのかな
    夜空に放った 僕らの
    声は喧噪の中 消えて
    優しく僕らを包んでゆく

    繰り返しの日々が嫌んなって
    いっそ華麗に 輝いてみようか
    永遠に咲くドライフラワーよりも僕らは
    散りゆくことも 一心不乱な桜になろう

    笑って泣いて歌って 花になれ
    咲き誇れ いつか 光溢れ
    歯痒くても きっと 受け止めるよ
    未来は気にせずに

    数えきれないほど 何度も
    君の名を呼んだ
    手のひらに残る温もり
    あの時 誓った 僕らの
    声は喧噪の中 消えて
    君といた街に 立ちすくむよ

    いつのまにか 傷つく事が怖くなって
    まだ蕾(つぼみ)のまま
    光の射す場所を ずっと探してる
    明日もきっと

    何処まで行けば 笑いあえるの?
    自由や希望や夢は 僕が思うほど
    素晴らしいかな?輝いているのかな?
    未来をこの胸に

    数えきれないほど 何度も
    君の名を呼んだ
    何かで微笑んでるかな
    夜空に放った 僕らの
    声は喧噪の中 消えて
    優しく僕らを包んでゆく

    Hey Poldy what do you think about Stoicism.

    I'm wondering if you could apply it practically, as an alternative to therapy or anti-depressants. This is honestly a very stupid sounding question to me, but I'm curious anyway.

    Honestly, any major school of philosophy, I feel, is going to be very therapeutic. So long as it's not a chemical imbalance problem, forming a coherent rationality will do wonders for your ability to deal with life.

    There is no such thing as a fully coherent rationality which incorporates living in the world.

    I like stoicism a lot. But, I can tell you from experience, that if someone comes to, say, an online forum and says "my wife and three children just died after a drunk driver hit the brand new car I bought my wife in which they were driving" and you, as a stoic, say "vased break" everyone will mostly hate you.

    Edit: "no such thing" may be a little heavy-handed...maybe...but i'm pretty sure a coherent rationality would result in one killing one's self.

    Oh man. I come here kind of to try and work out what the hell I'm doing with myself after this big... thing with my girlfriend, and I'm hit instantly with rather intelligent and rational therapeutic techniques.

    I'd love to take on a system of belief wherein I can organize all my uncertainty and chaotic feelings toward the world.

    I can absolutely see the allure of religion.





    Also: I am a terrible partner.

    Oh man. I come here kind of to try and work out what the hell I'm doing with myself after this big... thing with my girlfriend, and I'm hit instantly with rather intelligent and rational therapeutic techniques.

    I'd love to take on a system of belief wherein I can organize all my uncertainty and chaotic feelings toward the world.

    I can absolutely see the allure of religion.





    Also: I am a terrible partner.

    I understand the allure of religion. I think philosophy offers the same thing, except instead of faith it's built upon reason, so I am attracted to it. I've been reading Descartes. It helped me get past something that happened last week. It wasn't even really relevant to what was happening, it was just enlightening and made things feel more sensical. It's something I can recommend.

    Well, first you have to define some a priori premises...

    Go on!

    I need this. I have no idea what to do with my self intellectually, philisophically.

    At what level do I make my own decisions, or rely on advice? Do I just do what I want, make my own mistakes and learn? When do I need to do that, or when do I need to listen to intelligent advice that could save me a lot of trouble? Which advice do I take? On anything, though in this specific situation I find myself, relationships and maturing are the main courses.

    I had a good drive and I know damn right well that I had this all planned out much more eloquently, but fuck all if I can remember how it went in my head now.

    Okay, JamesKeenan, you're in a very vulnerable place right now and I just want to help you. You can trust me.

    You're going to get a list of names in the mail. These names are bad, they are bad people. If you make the bad people go away, you'll get all the answers you need. Just be sure to make it look like an accident.

    what did you do keenan

    Spoiler'd because... Well I didn't want to post this anyways, but I actually did...

    And you asked.
    I make my own decisions without consulting the person I'm supposed to be bound to. I don't keep big promises like getting a job.

    I don't have a job. I'm 21 without a job. With a girlfriend I want to, intend on marrying.

    She has had the idea of moving out and getting married forever. We're older now and not close to doing that. And now her three year younger brother is already moving out with a job and a girlfriend who he has proposed to. So He's not helping my case.

    And me going to New York without her really... really brought this whole thing on. I made the plans without her, and then when I found out she couldn't go, I went anyway.

    That was the big thing, but it's in smaller things to.

    And I'm a damn good boyfriend in some smaller things like bringing her presents, taking her out, giving messages and genuinely caring for her and loving her, but I also live very separately, whereas she has expected a more... "hive mind" approach to relationship decisions and growth. And I still live with my grandmother.

    I don't know. I would advise against taking my word for all of this, because I probably misunderstood her own points. Then I'm poorly communicating my misunderstood issues to you over the internet. And you might misinterpret them just a little based on what they sound like compared to your own experiences...



    But it hurts a lot, and I know it's my fault, when she says things like, "If I were thinking in a strictly 'me and you, me first' sense and not a, 'I'm bound to this person', I'd have broken up with you a long time ago."

    My fault in that I've been promising to get a job and help us move out for a long time now, and sure I've looked, but...

    I'm a goddamn boyfriend bum. She should move on.
