>>686672973 My profession is programming, but there's also nothing wrong with being a psychologist; it's part of STEM and clinical and pharmacological research is quite a good place to help people from.
>>686673982 I used to be really fat. I have this loose skin that is terribly bothersome to me. Certainly doesn't help the bulimia, body dysmorphia etc. The zolpidem is because i dont sleep thru the night often. I get up a lot. Especially during a manic high, though those are much rarer now. I feel like the bipolar is managed fine by the risperdol, but i just never have any 'good' days. I just don't have the swings of really-terrible-down days and unhealthily-up-days. I wish I had, sometimes, the ups were at least something different than day-in, day-out "kinda ok i guess."
>>686672483 hello alice i always get nervously excited when i see your thread i wasn't sure if there would be one today which is always a downer but im happy there is o its me, tic's how are you doing? any interesting developments in your life lately?
>>686672483 Hi again. I have been really attracted to a dude for quite a few months, I've overheard him talk and heard things about him that he is really laid back and funny. I found out his name too, the only problem is that he doesn't know me... What do I do?
>>686672483 I'm already seeing a psychologist, so I'm good for now.. I think. I've seen you here before, what's your name? Fake or real, I don't care just something to call you besides 'the psychologist'.
>>686674275 You can't really compare your perception of time to mine. To answer your question, no. My internet has actually been shit lately, probably because muh tachyons, and it's been hard to get good connection.
>>686674756 o well i've been playing piano alot but thats nothing new I am working on composing something for my year end recital in two weeks. Other than that, I dont do much You're pretty much the only person I engage in substantial conversation with, on a regular basis heh How can I change this?
I really fucking the smell of chemicals like >gasoline >isopropyl alcohol >regular alcohol >motor oil >kerosene >burning plastic And strong cigarettes....but i dont huff them i just really feel relaxed if i catch a wiff of something i like
>>686675565 Thats true i feel very lonely all the time School can be draining but at least im around people and talk to a few guys in my class a couple of times a day however I dont see anyone over the weekend and just stay in my room.
I go on bike rides through trails thinking ill meet someone or something interesting will happen but it never does
summer vacation is the worst two months of loneliness what a drag but its probably the opposite for most other people
>>686672483 I have autism and bipolar and I take latuda twice a day just to be stable. How do I feel normal? I can't even get a job because I would lose my disability benefits and the uninsured cost of that shit is astronomical.
>>686675867 I run my truck rich and idle it in the driveway for minutes loving that rich scent spilling from the pipes, not saying i would directly breath it...but i would...why do i, who likes the sweet smell of fuels, and toxic chemicals ex. Ammonia and bleach together, why would i like this so much? And how the scent is kinda spicy like...chinese shilies
>>686675867 That's interesting. I study mathematics and have a couple of engineering buddies from some years back, one of which is studying software engineering. He's really into A.I. as well. Perhaps you could answer a few elementary questions I have about A.I.? I've talked to my buddy quite a bit, naturally, so I'm just wondering what other things you might say.
>>686676291 i ussually go vacationing with my family somewhere nice like a condo in Florida by the beach or what not but otherwise, my friends and i only meetup a couple of times nowadays the project idea is interesting Is that what developing games is to you: a project to lose yourself in?
>>686676669 What if Aliceposter doesn't actually have a Psych degree? What if Aliceposter is in an insane asylum, and she constantly hears doctors arguing about things, and one of them always yells, "I have a Psych degree!" and that entered her thoughts, and we're all her hallucinations?
>>686677002 First, there are no "insane asylums" in America anymore; there are mostly just state medical treatment centers, and basically everything else is out patient. The average stay for in patient is around 3 to 5 days.
Second, do you think they allow access to the internet unsupervised in in-patient?
Third, everyone would be delusions, not hallucinations.
>>686677070 Antidepressants are not exactly big business anymore; too many medications, too few differences.
>>686677179 I used to play FPS's a lot. I'm a bit too uncoordinated now though. Been thinking of picking up Doom...
>>686677312 i have the opposite problem (same disclaimer about sounding like trolling) but i number 2 every 5 days. there is no discomfort in those 5 days i just dont feel the need to go until the 5th day in the slightest
>>686672483 Okay i had some dates with a girl and recently she was mad at me because she thought i didnt take her seriously (mainly because I use a lot of XD and Haha in my sentences on whatsapp) altho i really do take her serious and told her i'd stop using it but she doesnt believe me. Then she told me she needed some space and now we didnt talk for like a week... Wtf should i do?
I know I self esteem issues and have for as long as I can remember, not really sure why though. But I'll get back to that later. For 4 or so years now I've hovered around being a NEET ever since I dropped out of school on night to comfort my (online) gf after some family drama gave me a reason to drop out since we were moving away from it.
I constantly form attachments over literally nothing with girls and then get upset when I'm forced to face the fact that there's nothing there. An ex (boyfriend) of mine (that I dated because he catfished me but decided to try it anyways) told me as we were breaking up that I'm desperate for love, and I think it's true I just don't know why.
And here's the biggest thing for me, I know my problems are from my self esteem issues. I know if I get over them I'll be able to pull myself together, I know the only one who truely cares about my flaws is myself and that as long as I accept them/fix them then no one will truely care. I know how easy it is to get out, get a job/friends and have a real life. And I start on that path all the time, but every time I fail. It's almost like I'm self sabotaging, I'll start doing things I know will harm the path out of this life style I say I hate but do it anyways. And I can't figure out why. What do you think doc?
>>686672483 So basically I'm really depressed, but I feel like therapy will probably be a waste of time... I'm thinking I should just ignore the suicidal thoughts rather than doing something I don't want to.
Can't remember if I ever gave an update - I lost contact with the Brit anon a while ago. He hasn't received or read my messages in a while. I was worried for a long while, but I don't think that's of much use anymore. I don't know how he is now. So that ends that chapter.
>>686677016 > .gov Should have mentioned canuckistani here. Earnings over $200/month get my support payments reduced by 50% of that amount, and if I cross a certain earnings threshold (not sure what it is) I lose my prescription coverage as well. Right now I get free on-patent antipsychotics, if I don't have cover I'll probably stuck with fucking first gen neuroleptic bullshit or something.
>>686677016 But you see, I know that those two are different, like very different. All you have told me about your field is that I should just believe you. Where are facts? Where are examples? Where is anything that is remotely convincing to anyone not gullible? How can your job be so easy?
You see, I don't trust anyone. And I won't believe a word you say. How will you fix me?
>>686677345 >there are no "insane asylums" in America anymore It could be in the past. Maybe one of the shitty ones, so it's like sensory deprivation, which I think does cause actually hallucinations, not delusions, outside of insanity. Or it could just be your mental state that makes you think that. >do you think they allow access to the internet unsupervised in in-patient That's where the hallucination part comes in, you're not actually using the internet. >everyone would be delusions, not hallucinations. That's the whole issue with the "they're insane" theories. Pretty much anything could be explained away. You could say that I'm hallucinating everyone I know, and I could say "What about their emotions? They actually have thoughts, so they must exist outside of my mind." You could just say "Haha you're hallucinating bro", and I couldn't prove you wrong. You, of course, couldn't prove yourself right. >>686677700 You feeling alright there?
>>686677474 So I replied to the other one first, but me and my crush had talked a little bit about Fallout 4, but ever since them, it's like we just somewhat look at each other. Also I think he flips his hair a lot when I see him, does that mean anything?
>>686677596 Sounds like a few things (I'm Not Op): You haven't gotten validation from your parents/family throughout your life/feel you've done something that is preventing you from accomplishing things that you otherwise deserve. You're also terrified of having to grow up and face the world.
Start using the Internet less, start working out. Do it slowly at first. Then start going out. Do it or you'll be caught in an endless cycle of misery online before finally snapping.
>>686677921 Y-Y-Y-Y-Y-Y-Y-Y-Y-Y-Y-Y-Y-Y-Y--Y-Y-Y-Y-Y-Y-Y-Y-Y-Y-Y-Y-Y-Y-Y-Y-Y-Y-Y--Y-Y-Y-Y-Y-Y-Y-Y-Y-Y-Y-Y-Y-Y-Y-Y-Yes ITITITITITITITITS THATHATHATHATHAT THREADTHREADTHREAD AGAIN AGAIN AGAIN NOIGGERRRTS is that how u do it?
It sounds less like self esteem issues and more like abandonment issues to me; you do it because you can't find that source of comfort anywhere else. You'd be a prime candidate for CBT; please talk to your doctor and look into it.
You can do it, if only you...try, Anonymous! I believe in you...now you need to believe you are worth it, yourself.
>>686672483 Sup doc, its pretty hard and real to confront my fears and doubts, i've pretty much failed at everything, and rightfully so, i always feel like i never give 100% when i know i can do it. I have so much doubt and so little self worth. I feel like my complete life is a failure, so much so, i barely eat, i feel im not worth it, like i dont deserve anything. I'm generally a really nice guy whos is overly helpful and just wants everyone else to be happy and okay, whats wrong with me?
>>686678082 I've never been diagnosed with migraine and don't know what it should feel like. The headaches are recent and I tend to think it's psychological, since they tend to be way more common when I feel stressed
>>686677016 Oh, it's nothing as complicated as that. While I would have loved to take courses regarding algorithms, and biological modeling, my degree is highly theoretical. Pure mathematician here. The closest I can come to benefit A.I. would be a bit of knowledge about epistemology. Which leads me to my first question, actually: what would you define to be 'artificial intelligence'? Obviously, it's a sort of elementary question because one would assume that that would lay the ground for the work done in the field, right? If not, how would you know what to work on? Although, my experience has been that a lot of people (including my buddy) doesn't or cannot find a proper definition, because there simply isn't one. This is obvious as there's discussion on the matter of intelligence alone; if intelligence baffles us, how would we even come close to making a copy of it?
So, what is your definition of artificial intelligence? Personally I think I have a holistic definition. Now, I haven't read much about psychology, in fact the closest I come is a bit of neuroscience, yet, I feel like you can talk about different kinds of intelligence, like social intelligence, logical intelligence, etc., and I believe artificial intelligence would have to be the whole and not parts.
>>686678319 It's not quite at that stage yet; I'm working on the engine currently.
>>686678367 Yeah, four years is just the start. *sighs and takes a deep breath*
Imagine you are a boat on an ocean, with no wind. You can paddle as hard as you like; you won't get anywhere, you are just treading water. And every day drones on. And every day the gulls come, looking for a meal. You can hang on as long as you like.
But eventually, the gulls are the ones leaving with full stomachs.
I have been obssesed with the same girl for 3 years now i am content with just glancing at her from across the room once or twice a day but sometimes the devastating reality that i will have the nerve to have a conversation with her let alone spend time with her for the rest of my life
every time i see romance in an manga or movie i feel really numb at how that wont be a reality for me.
Everyone has HUGE expectations for me and because I am scared I never work for them, like school, teachers tell me I am very smart and they expect insanely high grades from me (3.9 GPA minimum), but I always actually fuck up and get something like 2.7-3.5 and it hurts so hard seeing people disappointed.
>>686678186 >You haven't gotten validation from your parents/family throughout your life/feel you've done something that is preventing you from accomplishing things that you otherwise deserve. You're also terrified of having to grow up and face the world. Fair and accurate, although I don't think I'd agree with the second part even if I can't really argue against it. >>686678286 >abandonment issues I've never really been abandoned by anyone though, I mean besides never knowing my father. Everyone else-- fuck. I think you may actually be right,
Besides CBT is there anything else I can do? I have no money to do it on my own, and I don't think I can admit to my mother that I think I need therapy no matter how true it is, I'm not one to ask for help. Hell the only time I've ever admitted to anyone that I have "issues" is when I was drunk crying to my friend
(Is there any way I can have them bring it up so I don't have to ask for help?)
>>686678630 That...wouldn't make them psychological. That would make them physiological. Stress headaches are not psychological.
Take tylenol or caffiene pills.
>>686678740 Group therapy is more effective than one on one.
>>686678820 Eh? Artificial intelligence is anything that reacts to the environment in a non-trivial manner. Generally we refer to this as an agent architecture; a thermostat, for example, is a very simple A.I.
This...is the standard definition. It's not difficult at all. We're engineers; we don't consult philosophers on what the true meaning of intelligence or whatever is. We use what works.
>>686679031 Difficult doesn't mean impossible, Anon. Honestly, you might never gather the courage. That doesn't mean you're not capable of doing it. It is a fact that what you want is attainable. "Try harder" is seen as a cold, non-understanding bit of advice, but it is the simplest way to say it. >>686679342 Hell, did somebody send you through SCP-2222?
>>686679619 >>>686679425 (You) >How are you poor for life...? It's pretty simple, I live in a third world country and I have nothing of material value and no school, so I work 150 euros a month and I'm in big debts.
>>686679207 No offence, but that seems like a bit of a cop-out for a relatively specific thing. A lot of arbitrary things could be categorized as 'reacting to the environment in a non-trivial manner'. I understand where you're coming from though. It just seems like a very vague definition. You're putting a thermostat and reasoning under the same wing. I've heard about the 'rational agent' definition before, but it's usually from engineers who haven't even looked at pictures of brains. After all, you said you double-majored. Don't you think there's a bit more to it than that?
>>686679619 >...are you kidding? You know you have issues, you know you need help, and you won't actually go get it? or admit to it? I know it's fucked up, I know it's stupid. I just can't do it, I don't even know how to bring it up. How do I even start the conversation without sounding like a whiny cunt? >mummy I'm not happy, i need help :( I can't do that >If you could, don't you think you would be better by now? lol I guess that's fair.
My friends wife wants to fuck me and I want to fuck her too, physically. She has a great marriage otherwise, and neither of us want to ruin it so my question is this: How do we shake these feelings for each other?
>>686679619 i dont have any opportunities to talk to her and i want to but i know i never will i used to be sorta friends through my friends but that was 2 years ago and since then all my friends have stopped hanging out with each other and me and her have become strangers effectively.
>>686679664 i really really really dont want to try harder but i really really really want to be with her i think back on all the times i've talked to her and cringe so much to the point where i am physically overcome like earlier today i hopped off my bike mid bike ride and ran into the woods clenching my hair because i remembered a time when she started talking to me and i sorta interrupted her to blurt out that i was gonna go get a pencil
even now its so awkward to remember
i wish we became friends naturally but its not going to happen so instead i go on bike rides with the idea in the back of my mind that i might run into her by some coincidence. even if i did run into her i probably wouldn't say anything
Oh yeah, I might get closed off to some psychiatrist department for an investigation period the coming fall. English gets harder the longer I stay up, sorry for incoherency. After dropping the assburgers suspect, they now suspect I might have brain damage from how my birth went. I'll get my head looked at before that, shouldn't be long.
I usually dream about the same place when I dream, not in the sense that "it's that same house again" But more like a whole town and I can remember lots of parts from that town, I could probably even navigate that place by now. I always dream that I have this super weird feeling like I've been there. And I'm almost always alone and everything feels desolate and bleak
>>686680582 I can't do that because I can't stand cucks. If he turned out to be one, I'd be pissed on his behalf and push him until he fought me, manned up, and then fucked his wife in front of me while I lay there bleeding in a vulgar display of dominance.
>>686680534 But they'd get over it pretty fast right? It's really only ny parents I'm worried about, I don't have any friends worth talking about. Just don't want my parents to feel like they could have done anything to stop it, because they couldn't have
I have extreme social anxiety. I feel like I can't do any social event without wanting to break all of my fingers due to stress. I avoid people for the most part, but it kills me on the inside. What do, Alice?
>>686680162 I'm just a bad person who does good things. But I wish you well.
>>686680248 No, I think that you are looking for a line that isn't there; there is no fundamental difference between the many many layers of architecture between simple reaction tables and full on recurrent neural networks.
The human brain is just a very very large neural network; it's not fundamentally more powerful than a thermostat, it's just engineered for a different purpose. This follows quite easily from, well, the most fundamental of automatas: the turing machine.
A thermostat reasons; it's reasoning is very primitive, but it is still fundamentally reasoning.
>>686680280 What do you mean, you have nothing left to live for?
>>686680333 Yes, you can. You can do it, and you need to do it. Why are you worried about looking like a whiny cunt?
Do you think anyone would think you are a whiny cunt if you complained about a broken limb? If not, why do you think it about someone with a broken brain?
>>686680397 No, someones worth is what THEY make it out to be, TO THEM. There is no universal barometer for worth; you make your own judgments and you decide what you do.
So you pick.
>>686680470 I would recommend just avoiding each other.
Gotta say, I'm a little satisfied that you didn't say that you're here for us. Because I'm starting to think that you're not. I'm getting the idea that you're here to make yourself feel better rather that produce any actual help simply because you're unqualified. Like I said, you're heart is in the right place, and I think you deserve some reward for it, but your limited education isn't capable of helping everyone here. Your response will go unchallenged as I'll read it, but I won't respond any further. Just help me understand what your bottom line is, I just want some closure from you and I'll crawl back into my miserable state of existence.
Yes it is, that's why I lasted two weeks. Maybe your groups were different. I didn't feel like sitting their in front of strangers feeling like a pathetic sack of shit talking about how much I hate myself and how simply eating breakfast was a massive achievement for me. It was more humiliating than simply rotting in my bedroom alone. So I guess there's no hope then. Fuck
>>686681142 >What do you mean, you have nothing left to live for?
My life is meaningless and entirely empty. There's no chance of it improving and to be honest I don't think I'd want it to. I'm just tired of the effort it takes to pretend to be fine, for absolutely no reason. I'm going to die one day, why bother prolonging it? I don't wanna waste your time with that though, I guess I'm just trying to find a way to slip away quietly. I've never liked making a fuss.
>>686680663 If you had the chance to hook up with someone else, would you take it, or is she the only one that you want? Perhaps there are harmful habits of yours that only worsen how you feel? Try to cut those out. Maybe there is something you'll discover soon that you end up really liking, or even helps you with motivation, or gives you an answer. What are some things you've been wanting to do for a while, or that you just think would be fun? This could be as simple as seeing a movie you've been wanting to see. Even that could, somehow, get you to start thinking on a path that proves beneficial. I can't tell you specifically what you should do, Anon. Do whatever it is you want most. Hopefully that's what you think is in your best interest, and what ends up helping you the most later on in life. ... I do hope you have a good life, regardless of the past.
>>686681834 CBT need not be in a group Anonymous! If you need specialized or one on one care, you can get it! If you aren't getting it at your current doctor, get a new one!
But here: [email protected] Email me then, if you need someone to talk to, if you need someone to answer when you call. I cannot promise I will email you back immedietely, but I will do so the same day if at all possible.
You don't need to throw your life away for such a reason!
>>686681142 Well yeah, dreams are usually pretty random. But mine aren't alot of the times I don't know if I should call them nightmares because I don't wake up from them. But they are really really uncomfortable and I don't feel as rested as when I don't dream.
Do you know if there's anything I could do to influense my dreams to be 'happier'? Or is this the wrong place to ask?
>>686681142 >Yes, you can. You can do it, and you need to do it. Why are you worried about looking like a whiny cunt?
>Do you think anyone would think you are a whiny cunt if you complained about a broken limb? If not, why do you think it about someone with a broken brain? I don't know, it's just the way it is. And a broken arm is different, you're in pain. It's obviously, real physical pain. Not that psychological pain isn't real pain. I just, don't know
/b/ even if you're the biggest NEET treat everyone that comes into your life with positivity, treat everyone the way you Always wanted to be treated. We have the possibility to change generations ahead of us
I can't stand when people chew with their mouths open, especially crunchy food. I get headaches and start sweating, general panic to get out of the situation.
It really sucks when I'm in a public place. And I feel like a pain when I have to ask everyone I meet to not eat anything crunchy when they're around me. Especially since people tend to forget it and do it anyway
Can I get rid of this hatred for eating noises somehow?
i'm almost done with year 12.i want to attend Uni and stuff. but my family has a horrible history of brain problems and heart diseases. my add prevents me from focusing on things, even things i like.My asthma means i can't even do heavy work for more than 5 minutes without my lungs closing up. there's not a single thing i want to work in, i can physically work in. i don't think i can become an anthropologist or work in the medical industry at this rate. if i do get rejected into uni because of piss poor grades. what is there for me?
I'm genuinely considering suicide here, if i fail uni or get rejected, I'm stuck working at jobs that will barely pay for me. help me out here
I quit my job a few months ago due to my depression. Since then I just sit on the internet all day. I have enough money to last a while but I will run out in a few months. I'm going to therapy. I am hoping that by not worrying about getting a new job I can get out of my funk faster. Am I fucking myself over?
I fucked a 14 year old girl when I was 26. Lied through counseling and probation since she said it didn't happen. Wife asks if I actually don't remember, since I was drunk at the time and we have daughters. I do remember that I did it, what do??
There are groups of people which I hate for no visible reason, I will avoid and tell them to fuck off when around but I dont know why other than the fact that I dislike how they look visually, and no, not racism.
>Be me >Meet her >Tell her about the Dark Web and other weird shit >She is secretly nervous >End up really liking her, ask her out >She says yes >Apparently only said yes because she was afraid I would dox her or some shit >I feel horrible >She says that she was nervous at first, but she has truly started to love me, and she really did open up to me >Have to be a massive faggot and sperg out because I felt bad about her being scared of me >She barely talks most of the time due to depression >I try to get her to talk when she doesn't really talk >I assume stuff because I am a cuck >She ends up breaking up with me >She doesn't tell me why >I end up cracking it outta her >She says because I assume stuff and "interrogate" her. >Major Heart-Break >We continue to talk >She ends up opening up to me more, and even sends me pictures of a diary she wrote when she was younger, when I never even knew about it >I start making her feel bad (unintentionally) about how she broke up with me, and I kept saying sorry >Me and her got into a fight earlier, and we both agreed we should take some time apart from each other and not talk for a few weeks like until sometime in June I know this sounds autistic as shit, which it is, but I truly love her, the highlight of my day is when I first wake up and the first few moments I forget she broke up with me.. It hurts a lot, what can I do to make it better? She barely talks due to depression as I said, I just wish she would have talked more.. I didn't mean to be such an asshole, I don't deserve her. I care for her so much, I just want her back, do I still have a chance? What do I do?
Look I appreciate you pretending to care but I genuinely don't want any help with that. Basically I just want to know the best way to end it. I've already tried crashing a motorbike but I lived and just made everybody I know angry with me since they had to look after me while I was in a wheelchair for 6 months. Can't risk failing at that again so I need better ideas. What would be the most gentle way to go? Like say someone you knew died, what way of them dying would make you the least upset?
>>686682459 >You are clearly in pain right now dude. What's the difference? Pain is pain; the fact it is caused by emotions doesn't make it any less real. I don't know how to explain it, it's just different. To be honest I'd probably be lying if I said it wasn't different because it's me. If our positions were swapped I'd be saying the same thing you are and not understanding why the person doesn't just ask for help. But as the one who needs it, I just can't do it. I really don't know >Go get a cast for your broken bone, Anonymous. Don't suffer in silence. I can't make any promises, but at the very least I'll always keep this in my mind. Good news is I've started becoming more vocal about these kind of things so who knows maybe some day soon I'll be in therapy because of you....Obviously in a good way
>>686683535 Thank you. :) I should look into Upwork. I used to be a web developer. I quit because I felt like I was a failure and had no confidence in my ability. I don't ever want to do it again but it made me so much money. What if I took a job and fucked it up? How could I live with myself?
>>686681989 >>686681989 i think if some other girl came along who i liked then i would preferably get to know her a good amount but then hook up. i am a virgin and i dont think im bad looking, i just have no self confidence. a few girls have asked me out over the years but i acted unsure with them and none of them took the extra initiative to follow through. However, there is definitely something special with her. I don't think about her sexually like i do with most other girls (even tho shes quite attractive) for some reason a sexual thought about her has never formed in my mind. I believe it is because I love her (as cliche and retarded as that may sound) Sex never mattered with her. I would have sex with her if we were in a relationship, don't get me wrong, but what i long for is to spend time with her; someone to quell the loneliness, you know what I mean?
>>686681142 >>686681142 Hm.. I see. Except that reasoning was just one part of the whole, but I see what you mean.
Next question, I suppose, is: what is it that makes us think we're so different then? In comparison to other animals, as an example, I believe (and excuse me if I remember incorrectly) that what made us different was our incredibly big cerebral cortex, which enabled us to.. Basically analyze, right? Then the diencephalon (hypothalamus and thalamus) handled urges, compulses, etc., and the cerebellum all the way in the back is motor control, correct? It's a long time ago but I think I'm semi-correct about this. Now, I've heard examples of animals, mainly insects, that exhibit literal programmable behavior in the sense of automation. And the next step are bigger animals that are driven by their instincts, and the last step is us. Where does A.I. rank in this three step system? Obviously automation is possible, and I believe analysis as well, but instincts are a biological characteristic, correct? Yet, a huge part of what drives humans to act like they do is instincts. Is this a barrier in attempts to mimic human intelligence, or is that not even the focus of A.I.?
I'm sorry if this seems like a silly answer. I understand that a thermostat, or a Mario-playing A.I. aren't related to this.
>>686683879 No, that's bullshit dude; it's an excuse. I live in pain; I'm a pain patient, and the DEA cut off my oxy months ago; every day is pain, real, physical pain.
And depression is worse; I'd take the actual pain from my body any day over the depression.
Stop lying to yourself; this is an excuse. You don't want to admit it because you'll feel weaker or you'll feel like you are whiny or some other bullshit.
Suck it up! Get the help you need! It's not fucking tough to just suffer, it's idiotic, and it hurts everyone around you. You think your friends want you to suffer? Your family? No, they want you to be happy and healthy. And if you do end up putting a bullet in your brain, they'll be the ones who suffer because you thought it weak to get help.
Go to therapy. Get a cast put on that injury of yours. Stop being afraid of feeling or being weak; that's the weakest bullshit you could do.

>>686684261 We aren't different; that's the long and the short of it. In fact, there was a recent study that showed ants have some degree of self awareness and consciousness, which seems to be related to the midbrain, not the neocortex. Mix that with studies showing we don't have free will (as it can be determined what choices one will make up to 3 seconds before we make them), and it looks like the neocortex merely helps STOP bad decisions and JUSTIFY ones we do make.
I think your beliefs are unnecessarily anthropomorphic and human centric; the smartest things I know of aren't humans, they are genetic algorithms.
>>686683912 i will ask about it next then. thanks. i am still worried about being rejected or failing though. getting my lungs and ADD in check means nothing if i'm working full time just making enough to live by.
>>686684044 https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=W3716hI8lkE I understand what you're saying. The desire for a sexual partner, and/or a romantic partner, are two of the strongest desires that humans experience. She sounds like a nice and beautiful person, Anon. I guess that's the kind of person you like? I hope she likes that kind of person, too, because if so, congratulations. >>686683677 >do I still have a chance Of course. There's always a chance. If you both have problems to work out, there's probably a similiarity between those problems somewhere. If you do talk to her, would you want to gently mention this? If you thought you didn't deserve her, would you want to get her back? It might be your initial extreme emotions that make you think that. People deserve to be happy.
>Be Sadist >Explore darkest urges Age 11-18 >Planned to an hero but found something to live for, over time that motivation failed >Now found exactly what I wanted partner who is accepting of me and love me the same way I love them >Still drawn to wanting more, despite having everything I could possibly want What the fuck is wrong with my faggot brain, legit got everything I could ever want but still want worse and more depraved things and I don't know why.
>>686684989 my piss poor grades are a problem i can't fix. if i get accepted then i still have a chance, but if i get rejected (which is likely as i failed alot my classes and done poorly in most of the rest) than it's already game over. I'm just waiting for the response.
>>686683912 Because I stupidly dropped out of highschool out of sheer laziness, so I'll never get to do the one thing I wanted to. I live with my parents working a 9-5 job for minimum wage. I don't have any friends apart from people I've met online, I never socialize, I feel incredibly self conscious around other people, I've never had a relationship or even kissed a girl, I have zero interesting hobbies and I'm too distant and isolated from any social groups now to even attempt to gain new friends. I'm also a shallow and manipulative cunt. I'm fine with all this, I merely want to stop wasting the planet's resources. Why does everybody pretend like there's some great reward for enduring our fucking existence?
>>686685045 thanks. she is a nice person. she deserves someone better than me but being with her would make me so happy that i wouldn't know what to do. Maybe i'm not meant to be that happy in the end ..
Talking to you about all this is very helpful so thank you :)
>>686685503 The kids are angry we are angry my husbands ex made the whole thing up, town of 400 people, she is still trying to fuck us over, they aren't mine so I no longer want anything to do with them I am so angry
>>686685871 >intellectual superiority You can't actually believe this. >>686685998 >We're all just people. I stopped being 'people' a while ago, but I see what you're talking about. ... I'd like to think that these threads do help some people, Alice...
Hi, what's the best way to deal with a relative that has BPD (99% sure she has it)? I've completely cut her out from my life even though I don't want to. She hasn't seen a medical professional but how can I make her see reason when she has a 'tantrum'. She's in her twenties
>>686684833 I never stated any beliefs though, only what I could recall having read, which is why I asked what makes us think we're different and not why we're different. I don't think I've ever heard of genetic algorithms, so I'll be looking that up.
Have you read the book "Superintelligence" by Nick Bostrom?
>>686672483 How do I get over someone I never got with ?
My class partner is this muslim guy, hes so sweet, smart and handsome but I hear hes quite religious and so I never asked him out, I dont know why I got so bummed about it even though Ive felt less about people I have been with actually dumping me :(
>>686685503 it is in a key which is minor but i forget which one i improvised in and i dont have perfect pitch so i can't tell from the recording. Im very happy that you think it could work in a game. that wasn't even my intention when i recorded but it is very encouraging to hear you say that and if you ever wanted to use it then please, be my guest.
i'm just a little gloomy over thinking about this girl i like, i'm alright.
>>686685789 I'm glad. I'm not telling you what you should do, but saying that things aren't 'meant to be' is empty without explaining who or what assigned that meaning. In all likelyhood, nobody did. I have a friend who talks about Existentialism sometimes. According to him, there is no meaning, but that's not a bad thing.
>Since I can't fix my faggot brain I don't see the point in a society that advocates working just to make $ vs doing something that you excel at and are suited to, how do I make my brain stop being a wanker and just force it to do something despite not being enthusiastic or giving a fuck about it. >inb4 just do it, if I tried that id have to fucking torture people to deal with the daily stress of doing something you really don't wanna do.
>>686687084 >Been there done that I've dropped metric fuck tonnes of acid for that purpose, I just wanna see whats over the infinite rainbow but hit a dead wall in that regard. Only way to discover more is to an hero and see what lies over the rainbow, and if nothing resides over the rainbow well r.i.p
>>686686886 Society doesn't advocate that, but here's how you do it: Pick a project you want to do, schedule time to do it, then divide it into tiny chunks. Then do each chunk at a time, until you are done with the whole project.
Then pick a bigger project.
>>686687084 Yeah, and both of those forms of philosophy have been thoroughly disproven. But okay.
Alright guys, it's 10:30, my back hurts like a mother fucker, so I'm turning in.
Im after voice change after really Long Time, and when i said first Times to my dad with new voice he told me something like "wtf is wrong with your voice?". Now im speaking to family using fuckin high voice and its uncomfortable for me. Tell me how to start speaking with normal voice around him ;_;
>>686686856 >Jvhqe ytlqr lhymg kzomn ezbdl bvcle k? Biitj tsfzo hvspo zvnaj bwmk, tuhpa gavsi zgfjm yl What did he mean by this? ... (Second favorite /tv/ meme.) ... Is this a Caesar Cipher? Did your head get fucked up, judging by the bandages? I sure hope you didn't take enemy fire to the trusty noggin, Bell.
>>686685998 >...so take out loans and go to college? Go to a bar or club or whatever and find friends and a relationship? Who cares if your hobbies are interesting; they are yours alone?
All of what you've said is "things are bad"; that in no way leads to "things will always be bad".
"Just go fix your problems anon then things will be fine"
oh ok i didnt know it was that easy.
You know, when someone is talking about killing themselves, it's out of desperation at the fact they've tried everything they can think of and things still haven't improved. Some people's lives are just going nowhere. For some of us there's just zero point in wandering about all alone until we get hit by a bus or die of old age.
>>686687305 >Then pick a bigger project. So essentially keep running on the wheel and constantly keep picking a bigger wheel? Lets say for the sake of arguement, I chose AI theory, then advanced to AI programming, which led to AI, and the AI led to me finally finding peace due to achieving what I wanted at that moment. But what happens when that fades and I am drawn to the next task? Legit I just want to live forever and see everything that ever will be but cannot do that for its not a reasonable achievable goal with the current understanding of the universe and biology / technology. What do when what you want you can never ever have?
>>686687488 >"Just go fix your problems anon then things will be fine" You're oversimplifying everyone's advice into circular reasoning. I beliebe Alice has given some simple advice, but I think that's on purpose, although I can't speak for her intentions, or say what she's thinking. Saying "Try harder" an an answer to "How can I make my life better" is meant to serve as a reminder that your life isn't to a point where you are absolutely unable to make it better no matter what you do. There should always be something you're able to do that will help you. >>686686737 Please explain how >I hear hes quite religious Leads to >I never asked him out If you can't think of a reason why that turns you away from him, well...
>>686687305 Oh, no worries, I was more seeking validation of what I had read rather than trying to shake a point out of my sleeve. I'm really not knowledgeable about most things biological. And I will shoot you an email.
>>686688031 Its because the religious people who Ive seen would make a problem of it, if I ask him out and he no longer speaks to me that will fuck our grades, so why risk ruin the relationship to begin with ?
Please respond fellow anon, So found out my wife was molested by her step dad from a very young age I am the only one who knows of this and I do not want to fuck up her familys life brother/sister mom ect... by letting her whole family know of what has happened but I want to get back at him for alllll of the fucked up shit he has done to her and caused in her life, So any advice tips or anything helps thanks
>>686689370 I honestly dont care if its black mail or not really... Hes fucking evil and some of the shit he has done and caused has left some deep emotional scars that is taking a lot to fix and I would but it also effects her and dont want it to come back on her in any way so its not as easy as just telling everyone because hes fucking crazy ontop of it and feel he would do something crazy if he felt he had nothing to lose if everyone know
