This is a great post, I could have plucked the same words right out of my head.

I've always seen theredpill as more than just sexual strategy, but as a microcosm for pretty much every other belief in the world.

Since there are so many things in this world where people are living in 'the matrix' as you've said - religion, relationships, government etc. and most people are happy to be in there.

I found myself feeling very nihilistic when I was about 18-19 as I had just started to research things for myself, and found that the real world has very little in common with the world that most people live in, but I gradually realized that there is a beauty in knowing how things really are, rather than living in a world that is the way you wish it was, but is false.

I believe Sagan/Dawkins said something about that - there is an inherent goodness in truth, purely by virtue of the fact that it is true.

I went from seeing myself as simply a part of a society, to seeing myself as a total individual, who is free to do pretty much whatever he likes - the only thing that exists for me is my consciousness - it doesn't particularly matter what others think of me, I can add and take away parts of my life if I want to, but the one thing that remains part of me is simply myself, so that is the only really important part.

Seeing the world like this, and realizing that your time is limited, is just amazingly liberating. I am very lucky to have an inquisitive mind, been born into a time where knowledge can be shared globally, and to have stumbled onto this knowledge relatively early, I think that is the thing I am most thankful for.

Amen to that, the sum total of human knowledge in our pockets for the first time in history. Glad to have been a part of that.

Having all the knowledge in the world is meaningless, and sometimes harmful if you don't have the intellect and wisdom to wield it.

[–]Human_v2 2 points3 points  (0 children)

What it really means is that we're now in an age where intelligence is marked by the ability to 'wield' knowledge, as you put it. We don't need to invest so much mental energy into memorising specific knowledge and can use that to truly think through problems.

The worry of course is that people will waste the time and energy technology frees up for us by spending it all on transient pleasures like TV or magazines.

No, the truth is good only because it serves ends, which aren't even really "good" (morality is another spook, like the idea women are sexually attracted to self-sacrificing providers). The reason TRP is "good" is because it's useful, believing evolution helps us understand problems, understanding were getting ass plowed by the corporate-state complex is only good because now we know our enemy. If there was no real benefit to believing God doesn't exist why shouldn't I delude myself?

'Abandoning the gift of reflection, in favor of being happy is reducing yourself to the cognitive level of livestock.'

Beautiful. Made me think of Plato's quote: 'The unexamined life is not worth living.'

[–][deleted] 6 points7 points  (0 children)

Reminds me of the quote by Mill.

"It is better to be a human being dissatisfied than a pig satisfied; better to be Socrates dissatisfied than a fool satisfied. And if the fool, or the pig, are of different opinion, it is because they only know their own side of the question. The other party to the comparison knows both sides."

You say it as if the two are mutually exclusive; not necessarily so. Although it generally takes acceptance of the former to genuinely appreciate the latter. Perception through experience is rarely so black and white.

His statement can be expressed as: If you X for Y reason, you are doing Z to yourself.

There is no dichotomy and therefore no mutually exclusive assumption in that type of statement.

That was Plato, but Socrates told the story. Socrates is more of a fictional character, there is some discussion whether he existed or not.

It is nearly certain Socrates existed. What is debated are whether everything that is attributed to him was actually his work or that of his disciples.

      I listened to the 7:48 audio of that Ezekiel verse and at the end it says adulterous women have blood on their hands the sovereign Lord says,

      "Bring a mob against them and give them over to terror and plunder, the mob will stone them and cut them down with their swords, they will kill their sons and daughters and burn down their houses so I will put an end to lewdness in the land that all women will take warning and not imitate you. You will suffer the penalty for your lewdness and bear the consequences in your sins of idolatry. Then you will know I am the sovereign Lord."

      Man the Lord doesn't fuck around does he, runs quite a scared straight program.

        This is why post like:

        • fapping is better than fat chicks

        • i love this bitch how can I brainwash her into letting me fuck her

        • I don't want to spin plates, tell me how to make my girldfried a RPW

        • Women and society are mean, MRM FTW !

        • fake it till you make it

        • seduction is about *****

        ..do not belong here, the world is shitty, fucking accept it already and stop looking only at the bad parts . You can know the red pill but still be a pathetic blue baller. Accept the horrible truth, don't try to juggle it or look for exceptionalism. You have a huge advantage in knowing this community, stop diluting it to accommodate your fears and blue biases.

        In both cases you prioritise gratification over improvement, you deflect dissatisfaction with your current self instead of using it to self improve.

        As a "work in progress", fatties are your training ground. We all want >8 but wanking to 8's won't get you to that level, picking up and spinning faties is extremely challenging, especially when you start up and screw up. They teach you how to behave as the partner with higher SMV. Esentially giving you the skillset to use in future interactions.

        Why fatties and not star directly with 6's or 7's? because you genuinely don't give a fuck about outcome and you won't get whipped and stop spinning and improving. A 6 will make you comfortable, and you'll stop chasing because you have regular access to someone decently attractive. But you wont have the power at least not as a beginner with a 6(they think they're 8s but stuck in an ugly duckling phase) and we all know what happens after a few months.

        In my definition of fake it til you make it, you're faking the confidence, success, etc, while actively and continuously making an effort to achieve it for real, hence the "until you make it." If it was just "fake it, that's good enough" I'd agree with you.

        As for fat girls, I may be an extreme case, but I'm actually grossed out by fat girls. I'm not sure I'd even be able to get hard. It's a real "do not want" situation.

        Nope, I can't stand the thought of doing a fat chick. If I'm going to lower my standards, they're at least going to be sort of skinny.

        [–]2asd1100 3 points4 points  (5 children)

        sorry, this has been archived and can no longer be voted on

        The problem is that most people fake it until they get it. And after loosing it, they repeat fake it, because that is what got them the first girl and will probably get them the second one. This PUA manner of looking at TRP does not lead to improvement, it just leads to easy gratification, a kind of social dynamic masturbation if I may.

        Only men with BBW fetishes aren't repulsed by them, it's natural, that is the point, they lack any sexual power over you.

        How is dragging a fat chick home from the bar so she can play with my limp dick for 10 minutes before we both give up going to be good practice or increase confidence? It's totally counterproductive.

        if you know how to lead and don't sweat at her shit tests then no

        if you don't have a problem in keeping frame when she uses her sex card again no

        if you don't crack after 2 weeks and can't see your life witout her again, you don't need the starter pack

        but a lot of guys (like 90%) get the technique and punch slightly above their weight(SMV) get snagged(yes the chick picks them) by a chick and revert to supplication after the second date, because the thirst is gone.

        I dunno. I've recently got into nofap and I can't deny I feel infinitely more productive and happy when I control my urges and don't masturbate or fuck fat chicks. I recommend people try abstaining and seeing if they feel similar effects.

        People do not realize that "bread and circus" still applies in modern society. Make the people content enough to perceive the world as a good place to live. As long as they're entertained, order will be kept. Plate spinning and self-improvement is TRP's form of entertainment.

        I just hope I live long enough to see the people stop being entertained.

        stupid argument. i have heard it applied to crimea too "it was not a legitimate election so only half the population voted, hence the near 100% results" that is an easy way to explain away an inconvenient truth. god forbid we admit turks dont want western media dominating their outlets, or that most people in ukraine are just ordinary russians and want nothing to do with peasant ukrainians. choosing not to vote means throwing your voice away, regardless how you feel about the election. when you dont vote, you waive all rights to complain about results of the ballot.

        I'm pretty sure both youtube and twitter were banned because of information that could compromise the ruling party. I doubt it had anything to do with funny cat videos or 140 character rants about the newest Coach bags coming out.

        well, when they first got banned, it was possible to enter those sites with simply changing your dns address. I am not sure if it still is, but there are other ways (vpn etc.) So the ban is effective only for people who cannot think about googling "how to go to youtube", which sadly means the majority of people.

        The government/people in power toe a very thin line.

        They push the population as far as they can to keep control, but the real power rests with the people - if they step too far over that line, they are gone.

        It has happened since the beginning of time, in almost every civilization known to man. The people are happy to have things taken away from them, because they believe they are powerless, but eventually the people in charge push too far, and then all their power is worthless.

        One of your more insightful posts, GLO. The world is populated with people would would prefer to live in the Matrix than accept reality. Reality can be harsh, and the vast majority would rather live in ignorant bliss than burden themselves with clarity and understanding. It requires mental fortitude to see the world the way it is and still come out happy.

        The corollary to all this is that there are people who understand the Real but continue to push the comfortably lie to the masses. Note how these people are typically the most powerful. Religious leaders, politicians, CEO's of public companies. Understanding the truth of the world and using it to your benefit is enormously powerful.

        This is why it's not in our best interest to always spread the truth. Share it with others you know you are worth confiding in, take advantage of the rest. If people want to be sheep then feast on lamb.

        Great so we're doing autism nihilism again.

        The Real doesn't subscribe nihilism any more than it subscribes utilitarianism or fucking raelianism. It's about looking at the world how it really is and interpreting it how you see fit. If you look at the universe how it really is and then decide that there is a creator and an afterlife or that we are part of a complicated computer simulation then you're allowed to. It's about making the theory fit the facts, not the facts fit the theory. If you decide you want to work and bring up a family then good for you. Don't let some cunt tell you you're an idiot; just know the risks and make an informed decision.

        The matrix we live in isn't the world, but the way we interpret it. Drugs, porn etc. don't 'distract from the real' because they distract from your masculinity but because they distort your perceptions and interpretations of what the world really is. Masculinity itself isn't a nihilistic part of 'The Real': it's an interpretation of traits that make men happy, successful and attractive to the opposite sex.

        Life is a great game that rigged against you; if you play by the rules then you'll lose. You can give up and refuse to play or you can learn the true nature of the game and turn it against the system that would love to fuck you over.

        It's not even that I disagree with this post. I think GLO just came to a vastly different conclusion than I would.

        I believe Lacan knew about the female nature, his most famous quote ''La femme n'existe pas'' for me is a refrence to male delusions about women, ''The selfless mother'' and ''The faithful wife''. This woman doesn't exist in The Real, this woman is not a ''delusion'' either, but an idolized version of reality. His other quote ''Woman is a symptom of man'' is just as redpill, he's talking about how men project their values onto The Woman, from the link :

        More precisely, a woman is a symptom of a man, in the sense that a woman can only ever enter the psychic economy of men as a fantasy object (a), the cause of their desire.

        The fact of the matter is that these guys, ''Lacanians'' I mean, have held immense power over a very elitist, very secretive psychoanalyst tradition in Europe that has been growing in the past 20 years, when every other bastion of Psychoanalysis and even psychology has been under immense pressure from psychiatry. They don't share what they know either, most of Lacan's work hasn't been published. Imagine using redpill knowledge for counseling in a blue pill world!

          Women act in their biological self interest when choosing or abandoning partners.

          Not entirely. They act in their perceived (both consciously and subconsciously) self interest, as does everyone else.

          Strong anti-disestablishment views, which I agree with. Society has been constructed to try and preserve a minority 1% in power and prevent anyone climbing the ladder by conforming.

          Would you maintain a realist perspective? Is it possible, to have similar truth claims as an anti-realist?

          You have a mind with which you can interpret and understand the world. Willfully abandoning this gift is a betrayal of your humanity.

          This was my favorite segment. It just reminds of the "well you wouldn't understand because your not a (ethnicity) (gender)." However the things I feel I can understand best are those that do not influence me emotionally, and I am truly without bias. I trust myself and my observations above all else, you cannot tell me that red is yellow. It is amazing what people will believe just because someone has a PhD.

          This is a fucking timely and well written post.

          I want to pick a nit about this paragraph, at the same emphasizing my agreement and esteem for the post as a whole.

          When men engage in violence they reenter The Real of natural masculinity.

          In my opinion (and I suspect the OP's), that statement is true in rare, rare cases.

          Eliciting violence from state- and culture-controlled men is FUCKING SIMPLE and therefore pandemic. That sort of violence isn't The Real Real, but it's closer to The Real than almost anything else, hence its appeal.

          Fascinating post, I like it.

          I would like to point out that a helpful therapist will not simply tell a man to forgive a cheating woman. Many will of course, depending on the (your?) local culture and values. Many however will simply work with what's within the man's power, focus on their role in the relationship, their needs, and what was it about them that led to having a cheating partner. Not in the sense of "you didn't give her enough hugs so she went elsewhere" but more of a "what is it about you that led you to choose a woman not really interested in you" or whatever it is the therapy has revealed. And often that will be because the man is not sufficiently connected to "the real" as you say.

          Of course, we can never be completely connected to "the real", which is what makes it so wonderful in my mind: there is always more to pursue.

          The Real is always in the eye of the beholder. The Real you see now is different from what you saw before and considered to be The Real. There is no final station in learning.

          There is a lot of good in this post but the fundamentalism of what OP considers to be The Real is offputting to me. Morality is not The Real, human qualities are not The Real. People need drugs to handle a day-to-day bullshit. Or is there anyone who is devoit of the use of psychoactive shit? No coffee? No dope? No booze? No fucking green tea? There is documented tendency for people to change their consciousness, that is The Real.

          Also I thought this was The Red Pill not The Atheist Dogma Pill.

          are you purporting that if a man sees his fiance get fucked that he will realize he's not alpha enough to dump his seed in her?

          and let's be honest, there are plenty of beta men who will take it time and time again because they know they've landed one completely out of their league and because of a basic biological need to procreate with the best and be seen with the best women, will take the abuse.

            Believing yourself to be better than you are is more valuable than self-reflection, which requires a lot of conscious energy devoted to manipulating. And of course, has been the environment humans have been forced to live in for millenia, and arguably now due to limited information available to us.

            Your post is fucking retarded.

            Willfully abandoning this gift is a betrayal of your humanity.

            If it's betraying our humanity then why have humans evolved so many mechanisms by which to deceive ourselves and others?
