The most important thing in life is OTHER PEOPLE.
Prove me wrong.
Protip: you can't.
>You would be worth nothing without other people
No one has any intrinsic worth. It's only defined by what you can offer other people.
But I hate hearing about other peoples lives.
It's the only assured way of leaving a lasting impression. Our mortality is a given and unless you have some tremendous talent, passing on your genes is the best option for living on so to speak.
Of course, but you didn't say that those people need to be alive to matter to you. You can merrily lock yourself in your room and only keep the company of dead people's works for the rest of your life.
>leaving a lasting impression
For whom? For what purpose?
>passing on your genes is the best option for living on so to speak
Dead is dead. When you die, your are DEAD. Passing on your genes simply means you created something that will also ultimately meet its end. It means absolutely nothing.
>It's the only assured way of leaving a lasting impression.
By being born you have irretrievably altered the timeline - all your actions will trickle out in all direction for the rest of time, forever.
I understand the idea of a legacy is appealing for alot of people, but you and I wont care so much after we're dead.
To build something. My goal is to build up a family name that'd be recognized and I can't do that by not reproducing. Granted I also need to be successful as well, though reproducing means that there's a chance my child/children will be successful themselves and achieve it.
I do care though. My family came from an impoverished nation and I'll be damned if our name is allowed to be associated with dirt farmers.
hey, i didn't read the thread i just wanted to comment on your image.
aren't "twist it" and "turn it" the same action? the 3 actions on a normal bop-it are bop it, twist it, and pull it, aren't they?
You cant see me but Im clappin.
Well played m80.
>family name or your status and they never will.
i googled to verify. the dumdum that made the original picture didn't even care to check his facts
>You would be worth nothing without other people.
worth nothing for what? other people?
>All good things in life revolve around others
and also all bad things
hes just projecting
because they dont give more than they take
and here is our online darwinist
not more than anything else
> passing on your genes is the best option for living on so to speak.
that doesnt even make sense
important when it fulfills you
good when it doesnt hurt you
ok now my reply
is everyone this retarded or is it just special to this thread?
>is everyone this retarded or is it just special to this thread?
Go on then smarty pants.
i found new information, apparently they made an extreme version of bop-it, adding "flick it" and "spin it" to the list of things to do. maybe the artist confused spinning it for turning it?
>though reproducing means that there's a chance my child/children will be successful themselves and achieve it
>or they might end up as degenerate manchildren neets who watch anime all day and choose not to reproduce then off themselves at age 25 because of their apparent mental and physical defects
you gotta support your claim with arguments for it to be able to got proven wrong. because its not a material fact. if it would, then it would be proven with experiments. like what science does. so when u make your arguments, and if my arguments win against yours, then we will assume that my you lost the argument. but that even will not prove that you are actually wrong or right, and it will never be possible till it gets on a mathematical equasion.
>i found new information
Slow down anon. This is starting to get too real.
Guys I dont want to freak you out, but I've been translating some dead sea scroll text and pieces are falling into place.
>important when it fulfills you
>good when it doesnt hurt you
How old are you?
An original question.
Do you know where you are, austist?
But what if you fail? What if your children grow up to live in poverty or live miserable life's? And in the end everyone just dies anyways, you might as well save your potential grief of ever having to face that harsh reality.
All to impress the opposite sex, use other people to be advantageous, and I think the whole friend stuff is fake almost as much as the whole boyfriend and girlfriend fling.
However, not entirely true. I enjoy gaming, anime, and doing maths; which has nothing to do with any human beings.
People are just sheep, all friendship is bullshit.
>tells me to prove him wrong
>tells me i can't
Whats the point anymore?
DUDE WEED LMAO
Go tell him that you are getting ebin digits while he is getting dicked in the ass desu desu.
the only thing in life that is possible is serving your own ego
all rational actions serve to benefit yourself in some way, even those which don't seem to benefit you, are in fact egotistical. Such as helping a homeless man, perhaps it seems selfless, but you're actually gaining a very specific feeling that is innate to man and is implicated in the pleasure seeking mechanisms in your brain, empathy, you in some way derive pleasure from this sort of action. Yes these actions help other people, but they are self serving in nature, we only seek to satisfy our own ego, whether we like to admit it or not.
Why do my actions or feelings have to coincide with my beliefs? Many people are affected by their emotions even though they understand it's irrational, for example in cases of social anxiety. Even though I don't intellectually believe it's important, I can still enjoy my instinctual hatred for you.
