Do you actually believe that bullshit or are you just high?


Yes I do believe it. I am sorry to tell you, but everything that you have believed in your entire life is lie.



Well damn. I knew something wasn't right. Teach me the truth Vega. Open my eyes.


He is saying that you will reach the fourth dimension of life. Everything will get better. Also, the fourth dimension is not the only dimension that is brought to be in existence. There are many dimensions, but we just don't know about them in total. How could we do that, right? Well, Open your eyes and start to feel it happen inside you. How can you open your eyes? I will just let Vega answer that because he's the creator of the dimensions while I create the bottom chain of depraved deaths.

Life confuses me, all in all I love my life, I'm studying something I'm interested in, I listen to the music I like, watch TV shows that I like, talk to people who I want to talk to, it sounds pretty simple, but I have such a happy life because of it.
But I also have the times when I wonder what I am doing with my life, what I will do later and weather I will achieve anything that people will remember me by once I'm dead.
Although this only tends to happen later on in the day, so whisky and Alestorm followed by sleep usually fixes this.
But I still want to do something that people will remember me for.

Life is pretty much a love-hate relationship.. Most of the time, it's wonderful to have such a happy, carefree life.

But, like technoducky (several posts above mine), I do also wonder if I'll be someone that people would really care about and remember. The thought of dying without people even noticing haunts me from time to time...

It's really quite a lonely world, I notice.

Sometimes I wonder if there is a purpose to all of this living.. Is it just to have a happy life, or maybe there's something more that I'm missing?

At first, during my teenage years, I believed it was a curse. And now it's definitely a gift since I've gotten older and began to see the more positive things in life.

Just because it's a so called "first world" country that doesn't mean that the citizens there don't have to deal with stress. Perhaps it isn't the same as survival stress, where you have the stress of struggling just to keep yourself and family alive, however there are other types of stressors involving family, friends, relationships and death or disease. Just because one has material goods doesn't make one happy. They should be grateful for their fortunes that they were allowed these luxuries others were not granted, but that doesn't mean they are content with their lives. Growing up with something is different than growing up without it and then obtaining it. If you had a TV, for example, in your home since you were a young child, having a television is just something normal, and therefore, while it's nice that you can afford to have one since you've always had it you take it for granted. However if you went your entire childhood without a TV and then when you became an adult and saved up to purchase one, having a TV would mean a lot since you've never owned one, or your family has never owned one. In the end it all comes down to the fact that each human being can only experience his or her view point on life and therefore they can't really empathize with those who don't have what they consider as basic goods. (So a computer/TV to continue with the example)


Perhaps I was a bit too vague with my comment. I'm really addressing people who have everything they could ever ask for in the world, nice family, nice house, good income, overall "good" life, but choose to go down sadness lane and find something insignificantly wrong.. and blow it up to a huge problem. Examples? Kids nowadays depressed about not having the latest technology, not being able to go to a party, a boy/girl doesn't like them and now they have no reason to live. I do recognize that there are acceptable things like a loved one's death and so on. All in all I'm just trying to say and I'm sick of people mopping about their life and not seeing the beauty of it all.

Are you really ready to define happiness as "having enough money to be comfortable?" Right, there's no need for friends, family, virtue, respect, ambition -- you have everything taken care of as long as you have internet. How exactly do you figure that happiness equates to having people that are worse off than you are? Any problems you might have are not actually problems because someone else has worse problems? Now, I've never been a CEO before, but I surmise that even CEO's can rightfully be unhappy. If your company performs poorly, and as a result, you must lay off thousands of your workers, do you think it wrong to be unhappy? Indeed -- you have millions of dollars, so there's no way you could care what happens to anyone else. The fact that thousands of people must now be unemployed ought to have no effect on you, because you have a big house, or even, just because you live in the first world. World leaders, I think, probably have similar feelings. The fact that someone else's well-being is within your power to influence can be a very reasonable source of unhappiness. This feeling can spread to family members, friends, and even strangers. Looking even just in these forums, most of the issues in the posts stem from interactions with other people. If you want to say that my friends, family, fellow humans, or even my actions ought to have no bearing on my happiness, then there's no way that I can fall in line with you.

Although, it's not like I don't understand your drift (unless you legitimately believe everything above). You seem to be trying to say that there are a lot of people that get depressed over petty and relatively meaningless things. I get that, and it's more or less understandable. Indeed, being resilient to these types of problems is important, if only because you might then be unable to deal with worse problems. However, there is also an extent to which it seems wrong to completely ignore a problem simply because there are worse problems. The solution to someone distressed over, say, their favorite sports team losing might be as simple as telling them to "get over it" or just joking around with them. The solution to, say, world hunger, might take a while, and will require a lot more productive capacity than you alone can provide. Further, you simply can't work on that problem all the time, which means that you will have excess time with which to solve more "petty" problems, like boredom. I don't see anything wrong with this, and actually, I'd prefer it this way. I think it''s a good thing that the brain reacts negatively to negative things happening, as it makes for a more appropriate response. This seems to improve conditions more than if you thought that there's no reason to feel negatively about some hardship, even petty ones. You'll be able to see a situation more effectively if you have feelings to match it. Granted some people react over-negatively to some problems, and over-positively to others, which is where I think it might be reasonable to call this behavior annoying.

I'm honestly glad you took some time out of your day to reply to me, but I've got to say you've read too much into my comment. Perhaps I was a bit too vague with my comment. I'm really addressing people who have everything they could ever ask for in the world, nice family, nice house, good income, overall "good" life, but choose to go down sadness lane and find something insignificantly wrong.. and blow it up to a huge problem.

I do recognize that there are acceptable things like a loved one's death, a job loss, house loss, anything going down with this economy and so on.. but honestly, there are a lot of people out there who don't appreciate what a gift life is. I'm not some crazy Christian either, just saying ;)
