It's hard to describe, and it's not something that happened all at once.
I spent a very long portion of my life wondering about the nature of human interaction.
Over time, I came to the conclusion that we are all, in a way, alone in our mind. Our words
are an attempt to communicate the thoughts we have, but not everyone can properly relate what
they understand in their mind. This has informed my view of how people work. Something that makes perfect sense to one person
makes no sense at all to another.

That may sound unusually cynical for me, if you happen to be familiar with me, but in reality I think it's made
me a more understanding person. I think I've become more attentive when discussing ideas I disagree with,
and I feel it's helped me to identify and quiet my knee jerk refusal to hear certain opinions. When you focus on the idea
of every person having an individual understanding, it makes it easier to see people as individuals rather than shills for different ideological groups.

Profound is an awful word I would say. It's like reliving a fucking nightmare and it just won 't go away. Of course me being a drug-free goodie two shoes definitely DOES NOT help.

Same shit, new day therefore completely mundane. I haven't experienced anything life changing since I've lived the same routine for 20 years and I'm content with that. I still feel the same as I do when I was little. None of my morals or values have changed. Everything that happens to me in the grand scheme is small. Thus, there's no reason for anything... Life's goes on and no fks were given.

Also, I don't understand the point of living for something, having hobbies and etc. It's all a past time.

And just a disclaimer, I'm not depressed.


You may not be depressed, but it sounds like you share some strong ideological values of nihilism. Which of course there's nothing wrong with that. What I find most perplexing is you have no hobbies or something/one you feel is worth living for. Unless I'm misinterpreting your words a bit. Pound on the ivory keys of a piano, pluck at a stringed instrument, dip a brush into some low-grade paint & let your hands dance. Certainly there's something for you dive passionately into.

Oh, trust me, I have a 'high' level of experience with acid. Mushrooms though... those things can reveal your own soul to you, & it can be quite frightening sometimes.

Getting bullied in school. This really helped me in raising my self-awareness and thus my perception of other human beings. And I started to realize, that least 95% of all humans are fucking retarded animals (i do not mean to offend you, dear animals), who can't use their own brains and tend to react in a very predictable manner. So now I am studying psychology, which is very interesting, because it is so accurate. Quite funny and sad at the same time. Guess Adam and Eve should have just swallowed all those apples instead of taking a mere bite.

On the bright side, life is quite short, so whatever.


Btw, this thread is really interesting to read through, thanks for sharing your stories guys.

That, my friend, is a profound realization, essential to the growth of your being. Kudos to you for accepting this thoughtful revelation.

I'm really excited to try mushrooms, they're just a little hard to find around here. I also want to go to Peru for an Ayahuasca retreat

When I was in 7th grade and decided to give this "anime" stuff a try on a whim. I got hooked within a week, and my personality began changing drastically. Before I was trying too hard to fit in (it was middle school. Pretty much what you'd expect.) but after really getting into anime I started figuring out who I really was and just not caring anymore about what others thought. Sometimes I imagine what would've happened if I hadn't gotten into anime, and it scares me a bit. Definitely life-changing for me.
