I'm just thankful to be alive. Taking deep breaths and doing what I can is all I'm capable of right now, but I'm okay with that! Water is good. I got new glasses, so I can see better. My window is cracked and the air is nice. I can't wait to get out of quarantine and become a 'real person' again. That's the best phrase I can think of to describe the feeling.

It's great. I'm not yet at the PhD level or anywhere near expertise of any branch in particular, but right now I'm trying to learn rings, fields and Galois theory to take a graduate level number theory course next semester. Other than that I still have to keep up with my other courses while trying to take a peek into other areas, I think I'll try to get into Riemannian geometry once I'm done with Galois, it just sounds so cool!

Math feels good when you're doing it but it's feelsgood because it's unironically the galaxy brain image macro and ascending your brain to a higher plane of existence. If you go beyond things you're meant to know you go insane. It's like philosophy. Philosophy and mathematics have the most people going insane of any field of study except gender studies lol

>>11071
The simple way of understanding them is that they're the group name for scalars, vectors, matrices, and so on. A scalar is a 0 dimensional tensor, a vector is a one dimensional tensor, a matrix is a two dimensional tensor, etc. Tensors also technically include the transformations and mappings between these, so the vector and scalar ("cross" and "dot") products are also tensors.

So put simply they're useful as a framework when you need to work with more than one of these things at once. Definitely considered higher level than basic math (e.g. calculus or introductory linear algebra) though so more detached than usual from "real life" than those too. Still very useful in engineering, physics (they can be used to describe e.g. the mechanics of a system and such in a concise way), and computer science. Funnily enough they're not actually that common in high level mathematics from what my math doc friends tell me.

I'm feeling an existential mood right now, so I'll say that I'm thankful for getting the chance to exist. Life, for all the crap it gives, is actually pretty nice. I'll be a little sad when I have to go.

>I'm thankful for getting the chance to exist.
I'm not.
I never consented to this. I didn't ask to be here. Just as I am owed nothing by merely existing, I will forever in kind owe existence nothing.

Likewise, I owe my parents nothing. They brought a life into this world, what say did I have in the matter? If anything, by being forced upon it, they owe me a life's worth in lieu. If I may feel so inclined, I might thank them one day, but this is not a certainty. It's okay, I can live with mutual ingratitude and I think this is an important state of tolerance. Perhaps gratitude from offspring should simply be something unsought of by the parent.
If only a future third-party could consent to conception, knowing what its inalienable existence would bring.

I'm still thankful for the nice things all around me, the long chain of giants that made it possible. I might not thank my ancestry for my existence, but I don't forget the lineage of all the merits and accomplishments people have had before me.

 No.11083

>>11082
>I never consented to this. I didn't ask to be here.
There is a possibility that this is not true though, even if it's impossible to know, as with the existence of god and what have you. But just as an interesting perspective, there is the possibility that the primordial essence of you chose to spark into the existence you have because there was something you desired here.

 No.11084

>>11083
Everything barring a logical or mathematical contradiction is a possibility.
We have no more reason to believe that we did consent to being born than we have reason to believe that our next meal is going to be poisoned. But if anyone were to start inspecting every single meal they have for every single kind of poison without any basis or evidence, we would rightfully deem that person insane.
I understand that you are trying to help, but giving weight to perspectives just because someone has uttered them does a lot more harm than good.

 No.11087

>>11084
Any weight given was unintended, my point was more, any concept such as god or free will and so on that we have no way of knowing the true mechanism of, it's unhelpful to decide which alternative is true without reason or proof, regardless of which side. But it can be helpful to explore differing perspectives because of different nuggets of concepts you can use.
I.e, I don't think he should believe we chose where we are, but I also believe it's unhelpful to believe that he didn't either. And that poster has obviously already spent some time considering the context concepts of that belief position based on the post, so maybe he'd get something more out of life by considering the opposite.

I've never understood this existential angst. There's a lot we don't get to choose in life, why should we let that bother us? Maybe not existing would have spared you from the bad of life, but it would also have robbed you of the good. Isn't it better to have been afforded the chance and some options in life, than to despise it all because it didn't go exactly how you wanted it to go in hindsight?

> I think you're putting words in my mouth.
Maybe I am. The way your post read came off as angsty to me on first impression:
> I'm not thankful to exist
> I never consented to existing
> My parents did me a disservice by bringing me into being
> I'll hold mutual ingratitude for that fact

> I said I was fine with mutual ingratitude. Nothing owed - nothing demanded. No expectations. There's no hatred in this.

I think I understand a bit more: you've taken a neutral stance to the matter of existence, and for the moment don't feel a lot of thankfulness about it, but you're thankful for "the nice things" (whatever those are) around you in spite of that?

 No.11115

I'm thankful for the brief moments of peace I have in life. I've thrown myself into so many bad situations in the past without forethought, hurt others, and myself irreparably, and now I'm reaping what I've sown. But these spells of mental ease once in a while make me feel blessed, I'm undeserving of the rest I get to take. There's something to be thankful for, and something worth fighting to make sure others can experience in it too. I'm thankful I made my mistakes while young, leaving such a breadth of time to do good. We're beings of spectra, in a blank, probably godless world. We ought to live what we perceive to be living well if we make that conclusion, it forces us into the position of being our own gods.

>>11098
I'm sorry to say that there's nothing in it at all, sushi roll. Life is little but a strange transaction of energy in the end. But pretending you're apart from the societal interpretation we make of this situation, by your own inaction, is its own form of hatred. I don't need to guess if I want to say you've accumulated misdeeds unto other people in this world, including your parents, just as you view your parents bringing you into this world to be a misdeed. But that's besides the point, I don't want you to feel like there's a debt or some karmic retribution to face. I do want you to understand is this: there's no neutrality in the world of the living, you can't convince people to stop giving birth anymore than you can snap your fingers and end all suffering, you may as well pay forth what little good you can while you're alive, to your parents and anyone else willing to receive it. Our world is getting ever more brutal by the moment, lighten the load of that burden by being strong enough to lend someone a shoulder. I don't know whether you buy into the utilitarian viewpoint, but I feel any human who cares about their consent in a situation must sense some form of suffering and be against it. They'd have little reason to be against their bringing into the world, otherwise.

Let your tolerance pave way to forgiveness, and eventually an expression of love, if it's possible for you. Entropy for the living until we reach a stasis for the dead. I wish you good fortunes, sushi roll.

Just the other day figured out you can freeze like any sweet non-fizzy drink in a tub and then take a fork and stab it inside a cup into a sweet ice-slush kind of thing, it's been keeping me sane in this ungodful heat we've been having recently here.

I guess that's kinda what "shaved ice" in anime is maybe? Or is that just regular ice with something sweet drizzled over afterwards for the taste component?

my grandma has a lemon tree and she gives my family tons of lemons every once in a while. suddenly i had to find out what to do with all the lemons.
i don't have any materials for makeshift explosives, so the next best thing was to make lemonade.
I've been drinking lots of lemonade lately and it just kind of makes me feel better, more energetic and lively.
it's great for someone like me who struggles with doing anything other than staying in bed all day, because i can always get up and make lemonade.
