A simpler life would make us happy. Our brains weren't designed for the internet, for television, for unrestricted and constant pleasure by vidya and porn.

Stop reminding me

indeed. but now that we have these things would we give them up? can you give porn knowing it would make you happier?

modernity has brought pleasure, but under every pleasure is the shadoe of addiction, excess, ultimately: self-destruction

There is wisdom in this thread. I can't stop thinking about death, what it must be like to go through the dying process, the finite nature of life, so I keep my eyes glued to the screen as a way of distracting myself. I can't look at my father or my dog or anyone else without thinking about how they're going to die and when that might be and how they'll handle it. Will they die in fear, afraid to the very end of what oblivion really means? It is not possible to die peacefully. It is not possible to accept death.

I welcome porn and vidya and all the other degenerate pleasures of the modern world. I no longer have to think.

This is true. Read "Industrial Society And Its Future" by Theodore Kaczynski, it's short and you'll like it.

Death is good if your an atheist. You won't be conscious to experience the oblivian.

I suppose I am a primitivist, but I understand that civilization is inevitable.

I don't mean happiness in the sense that you mean. Life is meant to be a difficult ordeal. We were never supposed to harvest pleasure from it like bees because happiness is not a sustainable frame of mind. There is a reason that it is transient. It is a reward system, which we have glorified because it feels good not unlike we have glorified sex. Yet there are people who base their entire lives around exploiting their brains reward system and burning them out like lightbulbs. There are societies that encourage their people do this. Not to have children or be productive, but to do this. Hedonism is encouraged throughout the entire western world. This is the modern definition of happiness. This is not what happiness is.

As a filipino/mongrel, I think I might of had a better life if I were born hundreds of years ago as a simple rice farmer/hut builder. All of this modern shit may be source of my degeneracy and my inevitable self-destruction.

Bump.

I'm posting TRUTH.
