Having a waifu is close to what school of philosophy? I suspect waifunism might be close to edonism because it's a escape from reality.
Pretty much. As someone pointed out, modal realism is as far as I know the only philosophical position that have peer-reviewed papers about a waifu and gives you a theoretical framework on how to communicate with her.
Is waifuposting serious? Are there actually people who genuinely fall in love with cartoons illustrated by greasy nerds? How fucking empty do you have inside to be constantly posting about a fictional character on a Nepalese wine tasting board? Lmfao
Do people fall in love with things that are not opposite sex? There are recorded instances of people falling in love with same gender. People falling in love with great age difference. People falling in love with animals, People falling in love with inanimate objects. People falling in love with ideals.
What's so different about people falling in love with their perfect partner that may never truly materialize?
Baka, there's no better option for someone who is socially excluded and has no hope of ever getting a girl.
How does a perfect waifu look like then?
>Sena is best girl
It wouldn't be anyone from shitty harems that's for sure.
I have never enjoyed anime, nor do I ever intend on having a waifu, but I appreciate the effort and reasoning behind that essay and I felt somehow refreshed having read it.
>he thinks the material world is evil because it's an imperfect reflection
that's no way to get on m8
Most of those people who have waifus are honestly the people who would be least likely to attract the love of their waifus. You can't make someone love you. The best you can do is be someone worth loving.
>Trying to unite fantasy and reality
Waifuism is like those currents of gnosticism that attributed all kind of evil characteristics to the material world and proclaimed that only the spiritual world was good. Likewise, people who have waifus say that 3D is "pig disgusting", and only 2D can offer you pure love.
Basically, waifufags are the true heirs of the Cathars.
The idea of creating a surrogate experience as a template for the authentic experience. At the foundation, the flaw speaks to the practioners mental concept that because of x I need experience or a simulation to obtain y, defaulting y mentally and setting up failure.
tl;Dr no confidence, absence of inspired faith
They fall in love with the ideal. They have lost the taste of sommelier because they want to feel an experience so bad they create a synthesis and seek not the genuine. This belief in delusion always goes punished.
