If women only care about you because you're tall they see you as nothing more than a social object to show off, because it shows society that they're successful socially.

If love isn't real because it's the effects of a drug, is it safe to say that happiness and sadness are also unreal? They're just the momentary awareness of a chemical reaction taking place and nothing more. That means those things shouldn't matter, right?

>>tfw there is no such thing as altruism; literally everything we do is for the sole purpose of making ourselves feel good

That's true anon, but I don't really care, because it feels terrible to see another people suffer (besides successfulnormalfags) and it's pleasant to cheer them up or help them a bit.

Even if I die alone , I die knowing I helped out a few people and quite a few people suffer a little less during life and that's good enough for me tbqh imo senpai

They only matter if you give them value.

If you believe that love is still worth pursuing, even knowing its chemical basis, then go for it.

fucking hell yes. My favorite:

Credulous at best
Your desire to believe in
Angels in the hearts of men.
But pull your head on out (of) your hippie haze
And give a listen
Shouldn't have to say it all again

The universe is hostile
So impersonal
Devour to survive
So it is, so it's always been .

>>25685210

because this is pseudo intellectual dogshit perpetuated mostly by people to seem 'enlightened' to the true inner workings of life.

its something that is associated with a teens coming to awareness of reality outside his/her own immediate surroundings, how there are a lot of unanswered questions re: life, and how that makes things appear pointless & hopeless.

especially when its all utter pessimism and pure intellectual masturbation, it's so fucking pathetic and boring.

You can't into logic. Having an existential crisis apparently doesn't make you nonretarded. Are you literally 16 years old?

Love in the way we imagine it doesn't exist, you fucking retard. What we think of as love is really just a chemical reaction. You can't into reading comprehension; it's pretty fucking clear what I meant.

>>25685663
I know what you mean you smug fuckface, it's not deep, it's retarded.

Are you literally 16?

Might be terrifying for you because you're a normie, but for people like me, we understand the end is an inevitability like the end of the universe and then, get this, we get on with a excruciatingly short lives because we don't have time to sit in fear like you op. Fuck yourself you his damn idiot

That's no terrifying.

We all experienced infinite nothingness before our births.

Life has been noting but a pain in the ass for most of my life.

I for one welcome death with open arms as long as it's quick and painless.

I'm just too much of a coward to do it myself.
>>
are you trying to convince us or convince urself OP?
its okay she still loves you everything else is just a cover up and inbetween to make you go after her and test u
>>
>>25686052
I contribute, though trying to teach you is a hard task as you're as stubborn as you are dumb.

Pain is neurons firing, stuff happening in the brain. Does knowing this make pain any less real? If some psycho starts flaying you alive you'll be in misery, your knowledge of the mechanism of pain won't change anything. You'll be in pain.
Love is chemicals and stuff happening in the brain. Does knowing this make love any less real? If you see a qt girl, just your type, who smiles at you and you talk, and you feel really happy and excited, your knowledge that it's dopamine and serotonin working won't change anything. You'll be in love.

You're just another oversensitive, dumb autistic faggot, that's why you couldn't dismiss the disturbance caused by your peers.

There is no objective way of looking at this reality even less so looking at it through the lenses of the modern scientific chastity cage.

>>25686258
Of course not. Concepts in general are not real by the words strictest sense. But OP doesn't speak about that, he's just being a brooding faggot. And you're being a nitpicking autist trying to be smart.
Do chairs exist? It's just pieces of metal and wood and yeah you can sit on it, but why would it be a chair? Because we agreed that this particular thing we will call chair.
Yes love is just a pattern chemical reactions that manifest itselfs as certain sensations, so why would it be love? Because we agreed that these particular sensations we will call love.

maybe if you have autism
>>
bright side: your emotions are the only reason why you care about any of that
If it makes you sad, then its because really you want to be happy about reality rather than sad about it.
So there's no reason to despair as your despair over reality just reaffirms your attachment to it.
Therefore simply deciding to seek happiness is enough to deny all the problems that all those issues you have reality may cause, because if you're happy they are nothing. If you're sad, its just another thing to be sad about.

Despairing over knowledge of reality and despairing over not getting a walmart job is the same kind of despair.
Its just an emotion, a fleeting blip in the experience within your mind, a wave that washes out of your mind.

Though I don't expect /r9k/ to understand.
