Does determinism result in nihilism?
Since I accepted determinism / hard incompatibilism I pretty much swallow in a complete apathy.

I prefer to swallow in oscillating ecstasy.

Don't swallow too hard or you'll choke.

No? The determinateness of your actions does not inherently predispose you to anything, since from an interior reference of a closed system, all actions feel equally free. You could just as easily have chosen - and thus have been determined - to grab life the balls instead of being a lazy NEET faggot. Hard determinism does not mean you take your inherent limitations lying down, since your will is also a part of this deterministic system. And this isn't even touching on the fact determinism makes no claims about metaphysics

God just think this shit through you fucking redditor sick of this Babby hipsters first existential crisis bullshit

Not so fast there J.P. Crosseye. You can't just declare the mind a closed system, it's highly suscepible to external influences. Accepting a determinist view of the world could have a paralysing effect on a emotional level, and the further realisation of this crippling effect a piece of information could have would only reinforce OP's faggotty belief that he is a puppet dancing on the strings of the universe. To truely remain human while living with hard determinism you must internalise the inescapable presence of external effects shaping you while at the same time (in an almost willfully ignorant way) choosing to raise up your natural self as the autocrat of your being.
Also metaphysics a shit, take your mind-body dualism elsewhere you cryto-Bolshevik

The universe is the closed system not the mind you dip
>>
>>7612330
But his actions aren't equally free from the interior reference of the universe you dip
>>
>>7612348
Which is I explicitly said you determinism does in no way imply taking your biological and character defects as "welp, it was all determined better just fap to futa for the rest of my life then" you dip
