Who /Transcended/ Here?
>Be 21 years old
>6 years ago decided I needed a change in direction and wanted to start a new life
>said fuck the world and became a hermit, intent of studying the mysteries of life
>want to share the hidden knowledge I learned in those years with the rest of the world
>Have a purpose in life
how many of you chose the life you have? Did your choice lead you to anything better?
>15 years old to 21 years old
Sure thing, anon. I'm not saying that it didn't happen, just that it's unlikely that a 15-21 came up with concepts that scientists in the top of their fields haven't, or dreamed of a philosophy which hasn't been examined in the last few odd hundred years of human history, and in spite of the billions of other people kicking around. Post your ideas.
My plan is like OP's except
>Live alone in a small apartment once I acquire $1,500 a month autismbux
>Never get internet, it's a hindrance to my life and hard to set up anyway
>Spend days reading, meditating and hiking
>Only use the internet occasionally with my laptop at the library to buy books
I'll tell you one i came up with by browsing this place.
we are told our entire lives how to think by authority figures, Parents, teachers, talking heads in society. Anything outside of those beliefs or ideals is usually swept under the rug or shunned. Hence places like these.
Part of the reason we are all here is because we have searched inwardly for the answers that we couldn't find in the "outside" world. Sadly many of us haven't found those answers and have become bitter, and that is why we all talk in a big echo chamber here.
cont. We're told our entire lives that X' has value because Y says it does. So for example, you have these memes. "if your under 5'9 kill yourself, >tfw no gf ect."
Why do we feel the need to have these things, is it because we really need them? Or because society tells us we need them? And on the flip side, why do we tell ourselves we're worthless because we don't have these things?
What ever happened to the concept of intrinsic value? of defining our own value? It is gone, along with many other principles in society.
that doesn't mean i think the companionship of a female has no value, obviously.
but the idea that we have to accomplish X to be worthy of Y is a flawed concept. ESPECIALLY when many of the X factors that define our value are things beyond our control.
we've got to learn to control the things that we can control in life, and not worry about the rest. Are we REALLY? not worthy of Stacey? Or do we just Tell ourselves, and more importantly let others tell us, we are not worthy of her?
pic related. A lot of the reason so many of us (including myself for a long time) lost our backbone is because we told ourselves we were no good because of a certain factor. But that just isn't true. We all have value, what that value is is ultimatley up to us. Pic related.
Sadly the hidden knowledge you've discovered doesn't mean jack shit to other people that aren't you. People only find answers meaninglful when it comes to personal problems if they come to them themselves
Is this what passes for insight these days? If the best you can offer after spending six years as a "hermit studying the mysteries of life" is some boring commentary on 4chan memes and supremely basic philosophy then you wasted those years, buddy.
Virtually every thought you could possibly have has been extensively debated by people far, far more intelligent than you. If you'd spent any of those years studying philosophy instead of whatever it is you actually did (browsed 4chan while pretending to be intelligent, probably) you'd realize how embarrassed you should be at trying to pass off something like
>we've got to learn to control the things that we can control in life, and not worry about the rest
as some kind of deep insight.
