Do you have faith, sushi?

I have this old memory when I, as a kid, lost a precious toy. Asked God to help me find it, but to no avail. I blamed God for this misfortune and declared that I no longer believe.

Now I would say I am an agnostic, but I think I really want to find God. God, as someone to talk to, to confess to and to find support in. Lately I faced a lot of difficulties and praying helped me. I even made few liabilities, that I now struggle to accomplish.

When things go well I forget about my prayings and obligations, there is that thought that it is all my work and not some old dude above my head. Until now I went by this and it made me feel like a tiny, tiny man.

I really want to believe, but something is stopping me. Please, share something about yourself.

I was raised to be religious (basically grew up in a Lutheran church), and although I enjoy reading the bible and other religious scriptures, I mostly do it for self improvement and self belief. This helps me when I have to ignore parts that I do not agree with.

> there is that thought that it is all my work and not some old dude above my head.


Maybe you're right. After all, it was you that experienced whatever happened. You actions(be it direct or indirect) caused them to happen. take the time to appreciate your accomplishments. You decided to seek God out in order to gain some form of stability. That was your doing.

I was taught that God is all around us. In my opinion, the Holy Trinity is a good starting point. Holy Spirit is the one I connect with the most. So the wind, the tree branch, that dog you saw yesterday and our feelings/thoughts are all a part of God. I focus more on the feeling of receiving mental strength and being understood. Helps me feel empowered when I realise that everything in this world is connected. The Sushi a few posts above this one explained it better that I did. "God is the eternal rhythm of the universe, life, experience, something indescribable in words."

But at the end of the day, how you view and use the religion is up to you. As long as it benefits you I'd say that it's working. if you don't feel comfortable with where you're at, try reading up on different religions and viewpoints. Hopefully you'll gain enlightenment and peace.

But you were having a hallucination. I don't really understand how you can draw conclusions about the universe from a temporary alteration of your brain chemistry.

I'm not a religious person myself, i was an atheist materialist for some time and that fucked me up really hard, to a point i had a strange lucid dream were i was on the verge of disappearance and desintegration and i couldnt see a reason to keep living and the only thing that made sense on that moment was suicide. When i woke up it was like atheism was the most retard idea ever, and its kinda how i feel till today. I've messed up with the occult for some time after that, but it wouldn't fill my void. Tried some practices from eastern religions like islam, hinduism and buddhism to no avail.
I tried going back to my religion too, but it doesn't feel aesthetically pleasing enough, i honestly am more about aesthetics than theological solidity, which made me live in a paradox between the Catholic church that once was or that could be and a pantheon inside my own head, divine beings i can feel as if they were me in strange times and lives. All this batshit insane post just to say: go read Chesterton, he might do for you what he couldnt do for me.

>>5656
Yeah that's my holdup. A lot of people feel the same thing so it's hard to discern whether or not I actually saw god. Nonetheless, I have faith in what I experience, and believe emotion or experience to be a reflection of some truth. Not an attack on rationality, but I believe there is some value in trusting one's perceptions. Even if they don't line up 100% with reality as we can test beyond ourself, what we perceive is part of our reality.

 No.5676

I was raised by not very religious parents which didn't try to force me into believing or not believing, and after being kinda religious as a kid I ended up being an atheist (despite going to a primary school where religion was considered. We went to pray once a year and had religion lessons)
>>5660
Imo religion is not the only way to fill the void. But it works I guess
>>5675
I've always seen reality as something real, concrete, and that would exist even without me. As such my subjective view is imperfect and partially untrue: if I mistake a ball for a brick, it's still a ball. If I get hit by it I don't get hurt even if in "my reality" I would. All the fear I'd feel while seeing the brick/ball fly towards me would be a mistake, and nothing more.

Did you know that even in research there is a mainline research track trailing behind big companies or well-known names?

Researching anything else is forbidden… at least as far as your advisers are concerned. All your special track research has to be hush hush while you slowly crank out regular mainline track papers.

Eventually, you either realize your idea and decide it's not worth sharing with your community or you move on, having failed to realize your brilliant idea.

There's no winning!

fuck the system, fuck hoes, smoke kush

I've done research on my own, separate from my university, because academia focuses on shit that's measurable

there's too much of an emphasis on LaTeX, abstracts, graphs in gnuplot or whatever, and other pseudointellectual shit to make your boring-ass research paper look smarter

but real research can transcend academia

I used to think academia was the be-all and end-all of education, but it's really not

autodidactism is better tbh famalam

post it on your website or github or something, ignore universities

The 944 is a great car. Good for a lot of highway driving and is set up stock as good cruiser and its pretty easy to maintain as there were a lot of them so parts are easy to get and despite not having a lot of room in the engine bay, they are pretty easy to work on so long as you dont try to race it everywhere and warp the head and valves.
They also look great and feel like you are driving a jet fighter.

I've got a 2007 toyota camry which is still in really good condition. It was previously owned by my uncle who only drove it to work and back (he also has a minivan which he used whenever they went anywhere as a family). The car was also kept in a garage for its entire life, so the paint is in really good condition. I actually just recently passed 100k miles just last month!

My dad has a new 5 series BMW, and while it's a really nice car I wouldn't recommend buying one outside of the warranty period. These cards need repairs every year and they can get very expensive very quickly. It's perfectly fine to splurge on it if you can afford it as a fun toy, but it definitely isn't a wise choice.

Theres a thread for promoting things. You would know that if you actually browse here. As usual someone comes in, plasters their poster on the biggest wall they can find, then leave.

what's your experience with love? falling in it, falling out of it, one-sided or mutual.

currently i'm crushing very, very hard on what might be the most unreadable person on earth. i fell in love (i guess) when they asked the professor if they could step out of class and stumbled over whether to say "can i" or "may i". they went with the latter (and said please) and dropped their phone on the way out.

crushing this hard is like throwing my heart and brain in a blender and pulverizing them at the highest speed, but the blender short-circuits and the whole thing just combusts and explodes. i've always been a hopeless romantic, so this is a real weird mix of unsurprising and absolutely terrifying. i've never been so frustrated and so joyful in my life.

how about you, sushis?

I work at customer service for a mobile company in the US. I live outside of the US but ofc it's cheaper to pay 3rd world countries for workforce, isn't it?
Do I enjoy it? actually, I do. It's just what you'd expect: talking to angry customers all day. It can be hell, actually. Today I got a really rude and frustrated guy on the phone. But I managed to keep calm and even though he was really rude throughout the call and kept telling me I wasn't helping him, though I WAS, in the end he cooled down. Not always does this happen, and since I'm not american and speaking with americanese, I get a lot of racist jackasses.
But in the end I enjoy it, and I also enjoy the fact that it thoughens me in some aspects, givese me some endurance, and also the fact that I'm outlasting a bunch of other people who keep dropping out.
It gives me the money to keep studying chinese, to take my pretty lady out for dinner every now and then, and generally, to chill. Even though sometimes the shift can be really heavy, but I also have drugs so in the end, I can't really complain.

How do you deal with pathological liars? Have you ever encountered any?

I've been lying pathologically for most of my childhood, and stopping doing so was the best change I've made in my life. I believe it passed to me from my mother, who to this day lies a lot.

However recently I've encountered a person who lies very much. It's a girl, we've got normal friendly relationships, neither of us is romantically interested or anything like that. However, for the little time we talk, I can see that she lies quite a lot.
Those lies are mostly about achievements or something similar. I don't care about them, it's just an indicator for me to not get surprised next time when she gives a different answer when we touch this topic. Something like that.

But I wonder how people deal with those. Do you call them out? Do you try to avoid the person or do you continue to communicate normally?

>How do you deal with pathological liars?
If I don't really have to spend much time around them I just ignore them or tell them they're full of shit.

If I'm stuck with them like people I work with I just avoid talking to them.

Had this one kid in school who was one. Mostly just made fun of him, tho he was a friend; banter I guess. Said his Father was a millionaire , he said he bought him self a Jag at age 14 for when he was 17, things of that nature, along the lines of materialism. Mostly he liked being the center of attention (maybe why he didn't mind the jokes), when a good friend of mine was in trouble with the law, he was spreading and talking about it to people who really didn't need to know. I was not keen on him post that.

Depends on how you know, and interact with the person. If you can't joke about it then that person is better being cut off.

 No.5488

I encourage it, in a way. I don't call them on their bullshit, but I let them tell me their ridiculous stories and tell them I believe them. I try to make them say the most ridiculous shit possible because I know they will embarrass themselves real bad at some point. I don't need to be the one making it happen.

 No.5489

I've only met one true pathological liar, and it was a girl from school. We were kids, so nothing of importance was ever discussed. She would just make stories up constantly. I never had a problem with it, and I would listen to the bullshit she had to say, but I wouldn't ever consider being friends with someone like that.

Hey sushis, how the hell do I get off the computer?

I spend practically all day browsing various boards and forums and doing nothing of value. I have a couple non-computer-based hobbies but barely any motivation. I've tried to make my computer time more productive (studying languages, programming, even just watching stuff or playing games) but I can never stick with it because to be honestly I hate the computer and everything to do with it.

I'm at the point where you could call me internet addicted, but it's mostly because I feel like I have nothing else to do. I could stop using the computer, but I have no idea how I'd fill my time. I guess I'd stare at the wall? My social life isn't too vibrant either and that doesn't help.

Has anyone else been here / does anyone have some ideas?

I think you should try creating things creating things, maybe start with things you find entertaining and try to create your own or lean how. When I take breaks from the internet, I also spend time reading books and writing in a journal which are ok. Sometimes I feel like my life is stagnating and I’m just doing the same thing all the time but having to create things and not having them readily available seems to change that. Also, an example of this would be trying to write stories to entertain myself. I’m not good at it but for some reason it’s pretty fulfilling.

If you are having trouble being productive, I’ve found that figuring out what you should do or work on, going to bed relatively early (melatonin helps a lot,) and waking up relatively early and doing whatever it is you decided to do as soon as you wake up helps a lot. If you start being productive before you have breakfast or do whatever else you do, you won’t have time to procrastinate, get sucked into some form of escapism, or get overwhelmed with whatever you are working on and it will be easier to concentrate for the rest of the day.

Just get outside. I've been skating around with headphones on the past few days and I feel like a kid again. Just take it in moment by moment. Psilocybin was a big help for me, it made me realize that being outside isn't threatening.
I fell yesterday and almost broke my leg, but I still feel great nonetheless.

In my experience, once I started going to university and had a lot to do, I started spending a lot less time on the computer (granted I'm doing it now instead of studying). Still, I think one of the best things you can do to help is to start dedicating a lot of time to something worthwhile. At least then, even if it involves the computer, you will be getting something done and you will feel better about your use of it. Maybe just going outside with a laptop to a park somewhere might change the mood around your pc use.

Cultivating social relationships is also a great way of waning yourself off if you have that option. It definitely helps me.

If you really want to get away from anything electronic, there are ways to do worthwhile things without the internet. Even learning a language (something I've been spending a lot of time doing in my free time) can be done with a physical spaced repetition system. You could read physical books, work on maths by hand, make physical art, do exercise. As another sushi here said, try psychedelics, maybe it would give you some perspective.
