Why does it feel like in the English speaking internet everyone take your words as an attack on their hobbies/personalities and instantly start being passive aggressive towards whatever it is you're saying?
Have you noticed the same? How do you deal with this phenomena?

Does anyone have trouble solving problems after a continuous period of solving problems? It feels like I can't think logically after working on a problem for about three hours, even if I take a break. Those hours also have to occur immediately after I wake up. Taking a nap helps.

I was thinking that my problem is related to attention and could be helped by meditating. I've never done it and I don't really know how, but maybe some of you have tried it before.

It sounds kind of woo woo to be honest.

Maybe that's the benefit! You'd be surprised how distracted some people let themselves get. Good job, sushi.

You're right, thinking about nothing is a modern misconception. The best sources tend to be buddhists (just ignore the theological stuff), I remember this video https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ukTaodQfYRQ being good, but the sound isn't working for me.

>>5908 I would say working for three hours straight on a problem (assuming you're focused the whole time) is a pretty good feat! Definitely takes a lot of mental energy.

After that, it's completely normal to need a good break before going back to work. Not just going to the bathroom or drinking a cup of coffee in five minutes, I mean an actual break. Get out of your workplace and interact with people if possible for at least half an hour. Then maybe you'll be able to start working again. Probably with lower performance than before, but hey, we're humans. We can only stay fully focused a few hours a day, so take it easy.


Regarding meditation, if you want some legit stuff just google zazen or vipassana, but don't expect some drastic results. It may help you a little bit with ignoring distractions or keeping anxiety away, but it's not a magic pill.

The character in your picture is called Tewi. She is a bunny, that wants to go to the moon, where all the real moon bunnies fight a war thats meaning has long been lost in the never ending violence and hatred.

Take good care of your brother! Maybe one day, he will go to war and never come back, because he never realized how the war had already reached his home and is slowly consuming all the things he loves.

Where would you like to live sushi?

I would like to live in a cozy wooded area around 30 minutes away from town. I'd like a greenhouse to grow vegetables and herbs somewhere on the place too.

the inside would have to be hella comfy. Maybe a small A-frame style cabin? I'd like to have a firewood stove as well. As well as plenty of space to store my books!

What's your idea of cozy livin'?

I live in the equivalent of 4 or 5 right now. It is horribly cramped, and i have barely any room for anything. Just getting into my desk chair is a bit of a challenge since there is hardly any floor space next to my desk, and getting into my closets is a bit fiddly too.

I'd like to live somewhere where the air is dry. I live near the equator so it gets pretty bad to even step outside during the summers since I am asthmatic.
I'd like to experience somewhere where it gets really cold too, with snow and ice and all the terror of it. I believe it was Melville that once said to be comfortable one must be uncomfortable as well.
I would live in a little house and be part of a little village too. Maybe a couple of friends would be there I could chat. Sure, I would lack some modern amenities but at least I could talk with someone who also needs company.
Maybe I could invite them over. I'd make a nice stew or roast and we could eat it together.

And when it did freeze over, I could enjoy a nice cup of hot chocolate and a fire running in the fireplace.
And when it turned to spring or fall, I could take a walk, watching over time as flowers blossom or orange-brown leaves fall.
I would spend the rest of my days painting and tending to plants without a dollar to worry about.

I'm always brought back to reality though. Maybe it's hopeless romanticism. But hey, a soul can still dream. :)

hope I can make my living space /comfy/

Realtime means you can see every letter as it's being typed. Pretty fun, and creates a brisk pace of discussion that makes it feel almost like an imageboard-irc. See you there~

Does anyone here practice Taoism?

Recently I've read up a few things about it and found it very appealing. In addition to that I've watched a few youtube videos from the dude who lived in the mountains with a Dao master and how it affected his personality.

I find the philosophical concepts very good. The "mindfulness" thing helped me to overcome social anxiety partially. Also the entire talk about nature made me want to go outside more, which was a completely foreign concept to me a year ago.

Here's some of the teachings (paraphrased by me) which I found cool and really useful:
>eat until you're 80% full
I thought that it sounded like some dumb diet for single moms, but it really makes you feel better in the long run. I didn't notice much change a few weeks in, but after a few months I found out that I no longer feel heavy in the stomach after eating, don't feel sleepy and have my sugar levels much more stable.
>focus on being "right now"
This is the "mindfulness" thing. When you feel anxious or something like that, switch all of your attention to the "current" moment. Focus on the fact that you live right here and right now, not in the past or in the future. You're a human being who functions and interacts with the environment right here and now.
>appreciate being a part of the nature's natural way
Everything around you naturally flows and lives on its own - the insects, the animals, the plants, other people, etc. You're part of this flow. Act in the most natural way in order to preserve the flow. Appreciate the ecosystem you're a part of.
>for every "yin" there will always be "yang"
The famous "yin yang" thing is part of the daoism philosophy. Put short, there's no yang ("light") without yin ("darkness"). Without bad, there's no good. If you only want good, you'll eventually have to pay the price for it. If something bad happens to you, it means that good will follow.

good writeup, sushi roll. i think everyone can learn from taoist ideas. won't make this a blogpost, but i'm currently homeless and one of the few things i keep in my bag is my copy of the tao te ching. everyone should read it. wouldn't be surprised if others here are already involved with taoism or would be particularly interested in it.
chapter 11 - using what is not - has always been my favourite. it just flipped my perspective of everything upside down when i first read it, and in such a short piece of writing!
i've thought for the longest time that, regardless of if you subscribe to any particular religion or none at all, everyone should read the tao te ching and the book of ecclesiastes. everyone can and should learn from them.

I've read the tao te ching some years ago. Thankfully it's not that long. However the shortness comes at a price. I found it rather cryptic. The general idea of Lao Tse was to simplify things and to calm the waves of life, as I would phrase it. On one side that means to chill the fuck out, as everything forcefull will face greater resistance, while smooth sailing brings you just as well to your destination, even though it might take a bit longer.

There where other parts I didn't understand at all and some parts I liked but forgot. Guess, I'll have to read it once more.

I've been suffering from depression and possibly many other mental illnesses that I need to get properly diagnosed for a long time now. I have to say I'm interested in the properties of Taoism for those very reasons. I'm trying to enter a new chapter in my life to say the least and perhaps the teachings can help my chaotic mental state to ease and be calm. But I have had a lot of bad with what feels like nothing good and if my "yin" is overloaded maybe just maybe I'm in store for a lot of "yang" for my future.

 No.5741

I quite like daoism, but have turned away from it as a higher guiding principle for reasons pointed to by these quotes and much of the writing by Eliezer Yudkowsky.

"Many great and wise Air Nomads have detached themselves and achieved spiritual enlightenment. But the Avatar can *never* do it. Because your sole duty is to the world. Here is my wisdom to you: selfless duty calls you to sacrifice your spiritual needs and do whatever it takes to protect the world."

"Dolphins can live in balance with nature, but in doing so they can never reach the stars and survive the death of our sun"

>>5737
One think I think helped me with my emotional state more than thinking of yin and yang was a philosophy I gained from learning about weightlifting and growing plants. The focus on gains.

In each day you check on the plants. If they are too dry you water them, and otherwise you do nothing. You can't water them extra to make them grow faster, that kills them. You need to maintain conditions that cause growth, and then you keep growing. Not a focus on refining a balance, just keeping things balanced enough, enough of the time that growth continues.

I find this way of thinking both adds responsibility to, and relaxes the focus on the current moment. What's good in the moment was built in the past, and your responsibility in the moment is to maintain growth into the future.

I do need to lampshade how much this crosses with the capitalist ideas of growth through consumption. Ideas found in economics can be reasonable, but a lot of the time seem to sacrifice long term growth (or survival) for short term growth.
