Don't know if this kind of topic belongs here. But does anyone else feel utterly repulsed by social media and the climate of virtual interactions especially on platforms where sushi rollymity is an option. Though whether or not sushi rollymous is turned on doesn't make much of a difference in the poor quality content produced. It's an endless repetition of temporary pointless trends and people bandwagoning another's point of view instead of establishing their own. I'm dead tired of the fanatic obsession focused on sex and politics over and over. I don't fucking care. I feel immobilized and unable to interact with most people my age, I don't see the purpose anymore of trying to be social especially in this unfiltered cesspool of vapid thoughts. I gave up on imageboards, lasted a streak reaching a full year. Came back occasionally to small boards to see what's up but I can see the toxicity slowly leaking in.

Some thoughts… people do have worldviews, and those worldviews can be categorized, can be more or less correct than other worldviews. This categorization might be called politics. Or identity politics, though that may include things that are even harder to change then worldview.
Having a correct worldview is important, but telling people their worldview is wrong and yours is correct, or otherwise worldview rallying for worldview combat is uncomfy.
I feel like at this sushi stand the focus should be on understanding other worldviews, more than pushing ones own. Or better then that, talking about mundane everyday life.
And sorry to contradict my own advice so promptly, but I gotta defend centrism. "Active dude" comes to me and says 'Hey "some guy" has been doing [unforgivable act] you gotta help us punish them! We can't have people doing [unforgivable act]!' And I am filled with uncertainty about whether [unforgivable act] is really unforgivable, which I cannot voice due to fear of being attacked. I am filled with anger at "some guy" in so far as I think [unforgivable act] really is unforgivable. I am filled with fear of being used as a pawn, maybe "some guy" hasn't done anything unforgivable at all, I only have "active dude"s word, after all, and its it's probably second or even third hand… it's definitely an unpleasant position to be in. Wanting to take action but not sure what action to take. Both sides shout "obviously just do the right thing: what we say to do."
Centrism is admitting you don't know and are too enslaved by your job to be able to spend enough time to find out. Its defeatist, but if you're defeated it's better not to live in a fiction where you are not, I don't see a better path to victory doing that.

What helps you relax or calm down?

Over the years I've noticed that no matter how distressed or anxious I am as soon as I just sit down under the Sun for a while and listen to some instrumental music consciously I get calm enough to think clearly or even take a nap. And removing shoes is a must to reach peak comfiness for me.

What about you sushis?

Figured why not make it not OT, by makin it the OnT.

This is the official start of the Cult of Good Sleep (informally: CoG Sleepsies (members are unofficially described as "cogs"->"ofSleep"))

Important data of note, this is not a malign cult.
All cult content is optional.
No cultist is ever entitled to force another into any action (regardless of if any "title" difference that may arise).
A cult main guidline, is to never become something that you may be ashamed to admit that you are apart of. It should never be an admittance, to admit you are with "them cogs".

The main object of adoration within the cult is the time of good sooth sleep, and its main way of abiding with that adoration, is to research and collect ways of maintaining an ease of entering good comfy sleep, in an as wide as possible range of environments to do so in, as to maintain a knowledge of a way to sleep in any possible location you may ever spend time long enough for a small nap.

Researched ways of sleepy gate entrance, should never be withheld from the community, because we are all sleeping on eachothers backs, and without the research before us, we would never have made it to the one we currently are at. And if you don't believe that, you shouldn't have to ride at your priors sleepy shoulders, should you? Then you don't need to pilfer community research without giving back your benefit from theirs.

We are currently 1 (me) members deep in sleep, with 1 member pending final acceptance. (we are not actually counting, and we are not ever tracking any one (or any) member//cultist, I was just having fun with typing, so I didn't want to stop, sorry, your fellowcal shizushi has tingly fingers)

Also swampweed always helps with bad dreams, but you have to chase them away during the day ones.

Remembering it better now, think I can explain actually.
It was like it took me along for a dream that came from it, not me. Kinda like the difference between how you feel when you play a game yourself, or if you watch somebody else play it. Like that, but for dreams.

Sadly my dream retention is shit, so I don't remember much detail, mostly just the mood and that strange feeling of being shown things, being lead places to witness.

Not really no, and it was only that one time I've ever felt that way in a dream. And the entrance into dream was completely different, in that I've never been with it at the beginning of a dream before, otherwise the times I do experience dream recall I remember the last piece from what happened before I awoke, and then might be able to fish out more dream-memory by going backwards from there.

This one was the other way, remembered the beginning of the dream more easily, while it got more cloudy further in. I guess as in, the dream memory anchor was placed at the opposite end of what I otherwise always experience.

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?

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.

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.

I've dealt with my mom lying like that for most of my life, and tbh, I never really learned how to deal with it. She constantly rewrites our family history and invents stories. I normally roll with it, but sometimes I wind up at a disadvantage when I'm talking to someone she met before me and I don't know what lies she's told them.

Hi sushis. Hope you're all doing well.
I think most people are finding new ways to be creative in these uncertain times, and I think it would be cool if we used this thread to share some of the things we've been working on!

That being said, I'm currently brainstorming some sort of novella based around humans who have ascended to the level of cosmic gods (kinda inspired by The Microcosmic God), and what it would be like to be dehumanised by such awesome power. It's also a chance for me to play around with some flowery language and sci-fi-esque grand descriptions of unfilmable concepts, my favourite of which being a game which these gods play. Here are the quotes:

"They still play games. But not at all like they used to. These people move entire species around like draughts, collapse an empire like taking a bishop, all with the regard for life tantamount the respect humans once had for a six of clubs."

"The Game is at once simulation game, chess board, blackjack and match of Go. It is equal parts dance of territory as debate of philosophy. They are making decisions trillions of times per minute, making plans and laying traps decades into the future. The ants on the ground believe it to be them making the decisions, but it is in fact us."

What are you working on, sushi?

Right now now I have a few concepts I'm writing in scrivener. Longest is currently 11,000 words, still so unfinished it makes zero sense, and the smallest is 400 words. Since they're all short stories I have no big plot to describe, but the main plot through out the stories is people describing changes to their body and mind, usually caused by sci-fi body mods or lovecraft horror. The main theme is how they relate to the world with a different body, how when their mind is being transformed their writing style and thought processes changes before they notice, and how repressed emotional problems are expressed through body horror. I have no lines to post since they're all rough drafts and some of them are more therapeutic than good, mostly the ones that deal the very last theme. Most of the works I write about are also related to my academic interest, body studies, so another big theme is how people view bodies.

>That being said, I'm currently brainstorming some sort of novella based around humans who have ascended to the level of cosmic gods (kinda inspired by The Microcosmic God), and what it would be like to be dehumanised by such awesome power.

I've wanted to do something somewhat similar were the character is an alien who's planet is invaded by humans who are competitively over powered compared to them. the story will either be about innate difference, less gravity allowing humans to leap more, humans having thumbs, humans being taller than the aliens, or the humans being genetically modified or in space suits with the 'they were human all along' twist being at the end.

when I was in university (about a decade ago now), there was this girl I liked. one night after some deep conversation she confided in me that she liked to draw but she kept it a secret because she expressed all of her deeper, more hidden emotions in her drawings and she didn't want people she knew superficially to see them. Right before I left for a study abroad program she shared her deviantart username with me so I could see her work. She had been very secretive about it until that point but she was academically very talented so naturally I was very curious to see what she was capable of.


What I found was some depressingly bland pictures of sad looking gothic lolitas. The art wasn't terrible, but it wasn't good either, just kind of in an uncanny valley middle where the facial anatomy and coloring and everything was just slightly off to be uncomfortable. Especially the faces, there was just something offputting about the faces, like they were just too chunky and generic.
I never asked about her art again.I wonder if she knew it was bad and that's why she never told anyone about it.

It's all still there in plain sight on deviantart though. I think her last update was in 2014.

Some people just like to draw for the sake of drawing. There's something to be said for art that isn't "good" but you really pour your heart and soul into. I probably wouldn't tell anyone either, though.

Its probably a mix of anxiety and depression friend. I know exactly what youre talking about. I can't offer you a solution because I feel this way often myself. My best suggestion is just keep pushing as hard as you can to be productive. You need to condition yourself to be able to work even when you feel this way.

I'm going through something very close and I think you have executive function disorder and underlying depression/anxiety expressed, or in this case masked, by alexithymia. The executive function disorder is obvious as being unable to perform tasks which one see's as easy due to an unknown mental block or bad planning is a key stone trait. An underlying case of depression or task anxiety also creates/worsens executive problems.
My main interest is your feeling of inexplainable uncomfortableness before a task and generally being uncomfortable existing as a sign of alexithymia. Alexithymia is a trait were people feel the reactions emotions bring, but they can't interpret them which often leads to them confusing emotional sensations for physical ones. The best example I can think of off the top of my head is from the book emotionally dumb; Paul is driving to a party with his gf. His heart is racing, but he can't tell what it means. Is it because he's anxious to be with his girlfriend? Is he mad he was cut off? Is it because he forgot his heart medication? This ties into you because your uncomfortableness sounds like an alexithymic interpretation of a negative emotion. Instead of having easily identifiable emotions and their causes, I don't feel good because I'm bad at X, you have vague problems and even vaguer emotions you confuse for physical discomfort, when I can't do something I feel tingly. You're obviously not happy right now, so your general depressive mood could be interpreted as your always running discomfort. Most people don't feel good before starting a task, especially people with executive problems, so your discomfort before tasks is an alexymic reaction to emotions.
What I recommend is you buy, preferably pirate, a book on skills to combat ADHD and/or executive function. Along side that you should read a CBT/DBT therapy book on anxiety and/or depression, which ever one you relate to most. Alexithymia is the more niche condition, so it has no books. The best you can do is make an emotion diary were you try to connect your body sensations to an emotion based on the context they appeared, My face feels red + I was just insulted = Angry? Embarrassed?. An emotional wheel could help.
If this doesn't work move to therapy, if you're to poor try online of sliding scale, and if that still doesn't work do drugs, most likely start with ADHD drugs as those are the cheapest.

My experience is that before a tasks I would get a vague emotiPost too long. Click here to view the full text.

I think I feel something similar, like a permanent sense of disquietude and anxiety that makes doing anything, or nothing at all, seem awkward and unnatural.
