To make us human, to help the crushed bird which we know will die. To pet the cat cold on a rainy day to give 5 dollars to homeless for a warm bite to feel better. To treasure the littlest things in life.

Your desire to lose your emotions is itself emotional. Logic would accept them for what they are.

Anyway, the thing about Vulcans is that they have emotions. Extremely strong emotions that they repress through strenuous meditation from a young age. If you really want to try and surpress your emotions, you you need to practice that.

Emotions are paramount to life.

The holy trinity from the bible has truth to it. It involves the mind, the heart, and your actions.

In order to have meaningful actions, your heart and your mind must be healthy.

All emotions are necessary, and are to be understood. This will raise your EQ (emotional IQ).

This is equivalent to a child plugging their ears, closing their eyes and yelling Lalalalala. It is as important (if not more so) to learn to pick up on and read social cues from others as it is to be a critical thinking individual. The reason for this is that humans are intrinsically social creatures. Getting ahead in life means other people are behind you and supporting you in various respects. If you don't have this, you will become bitter, disconnected, isolated, and will likely blame others for your unhappiness. You would be wrong, as it would be your lack of social skills that is the cause of your unhappiness.

And therefore you need emotions to have purpose.

I have deduced, through experience, that life is about one thing as it pertains to emotion: Leave the world a better place than when you found it.

With this realization I now have purpose, and it is so fucking important to have meaningful actions in life.

Lets pretend, for a minute, that you are a reincarnation. That you have lived before, or that before you had a brain capable of memory you were a spirit, and you chose to manifest in the material realm for a great purpose. Lets pretend that you remember now, that you are on a great mission. You will realize a greater purpose, whether this hypothetical situation is true or not.

This is exactly how magic works. Its about using such concepts to become stronger. The idea of a god is simply to create something bigger than yourself so that you can strive for something greater.

>>675639073
Emotions are important, without them the only reason for life is to make more dirt when you die.
The trick is to not live your life at their mercy and look at them logically for what they are.

Me and you could get along well, this has been my mission too for quite some time.
On the reincarnation bit. I like to think of it this way. Every choice you make and action you take no matter how seemingly insignificant, effect the world around you. The sum of those effects is an incarnation of you, and that incarnation will continue to effect the universe indefinitely.

> Logic
> Emotions

Why do they have to be mutually exclusive? Why can't we make the logical decision, even if it pains us to do so? Why do we HAVE to remove emotions from our lives?

OP sounds like some edgelord crybaby tween who doesn't want his wittle feewings hurt.

Or some Christfag trying to bait atheists into saying emotions are worthless, thus "proving" atheists are evil, or some such bullshit.

Either way, thread is retarded.

>>675641648
Yeah dude, awesome. I've always been extremely interested in the mind. This is only one perception of reality, it is extremely limited by the functions of our mind. And it is that humble realization that keeps me searching for MORE knowledge and/or reprocessing what I do "know".

Ghandi said: be the change you want to see in the world. And Michael Jackson has an awesome song called Man In The Mirror. I highly recommend it. I bet it will resonate with you as it does with me.

That's a good one.
I believe that the life we are living now is the only one we have, and the only time we will perceive reality. That doesn't mean reality will no longer perceive us. Newtons 3rd law

What's the point of color anon? You can see far better with an ultra high resolution black/white/grey gradient than with color. What's the point of adding flavors food that have no inherent nutritional value?

Your problem is trying to see "the point" in things. Everything is basically meaningless, fear, joy, sex, life, existence. Just enjoy it while it lasts, its just a blip on the radar. Stop asking WHY or what the point is, there is no answer.

Do you think it would make you superior to live solely on logical decisions? It won't. The most logical decision would be to end your own existence to free up resources for those that would put them to better use.
>>
>>675643650
It would actually be to put those resources to better use yourself.
But you wouldn't do this without emotion to drive you.

>implying there is a 'we' separate from the reality being perceived

When a light-bulb breaks and you screw in a new one, is the light that comes from this new one a 'different' light than was coming from the old one?

There is no thinker of thoughts, just thoughts.

Individual bodies are similar to nerve endings collecting information to be added to mind at large. I'm not getting oogie boogie on you here. We're already at a point where the information we store will be around for millions or billions of years as long as the entire species doesnt go extinct. As our organizing of information continues we will essentially create a god-like mind which contains us all and will extent to as far back as recorded history.

That's an interesting thought in itself, but my larger point is that the universe itself is what is behind everyone's eyes. Noone dies when the body dies. Death is not something that happens to you, absolute nothingness is not an experience that can be had. The body does not matter. The only thing that can happen to 'you' when you die is the same experience, or the same sort of experience as when you were born.

The individual is a conscious being playing a role in a system, the system itself is its own organism that acts for itself. But that doesn't mean the individuals making up the system aren't acting for themselves.
Think of it like Portuguese man o war is individual polyps coming together to function as a separate organism.

It's a gestalt, anon.

Every piece is working for itself, you are right. In doing so, through their organization, it is doing the work for the whole, but there is no real difference, it's about perspective.
>>
>>675645899
No, there is no choice to be part of the system or not. As the system is the sum of its parts.
Cancer is a part of system that isn't functioning properly, good thing systems are self correcting.

I've become really numb due to depression and whatnot. I live by logic. It doesn't really work, it's hard to connect with anyone around me and feel comfortable in social situations. I have to fake every social interaction except for school stuff. Plus, since I'm only 22, I don't know enough about the world to know what to do logically in every situation.
At first glance it sounds cool and edgy but in reality it's awkward and lonely, not really a good time.
