There is no way to refute this.
>pleasure is... le bad!
Distracting yourself with pleasure to avoid the responsibilities of reality is indeed bad. Passively consuming as a hobby is bad.
>responsibilities of reality
The fuck? What responsibilities?
Forget about it. It's another one of those "DOod you must have sex and have a lot of kids at all cost cuz mankind is like totally on the brink of extinction and by mankind I only mean people who share my skin color"
No it is not. Consumer culture was the only worthwhile and healthy way to entertain yourself and Internet killed it. You participatory culture fuckers are demonizing a perfectly reasonable habit because you can't bear not being the center of attention and not being able to bend everything to your will for 5 seconds
Deep sense of meaning is for suckers and philosophers (homos). Give me a full stomach, a livable wage and free time.
To do what exactly? Fulfill OPs prophecy.
Very well, but you can only have two of those things. Choose wisely.
People who share this comic around are so fucking pretentious
you think that because you're one of the grey ones
Guess again, I have all of those three things.
False. Even if you had a 100k/year programmer job where you only really work 4 hours a day, you’d still be miserable if you don’t care about what you’re able to provide or create
Guess again, homo. Not miserable, not even close.
That’s why you have to tell strangers on Cinemaphile about it, right?
when has this happened
all video games
nerd vocations like software engineering
With you being here right now
Literally every hobby.
Comic-books, videogames, genre-fiction, fucking Star Wars even, etc.
Any hobby that has ever been accused of gatekeeping.
Woke types have done that to:
ALL of those have become worse in terms of quality after this. What should be done now to reverse mediocrity and bring quality back?
that is bullshit.
I would see hookers every week and I would feel awrsome
You would for maybe a year, then you would feel the emptiness and disgust creeping in. Having warts on your dick wouldn’t help either.
Suddenly, you’re 65 and regretting your wasted life. You sit in your apartment eating takeout and wonder if you could have done better. What it would be like to have a loyal wife and baby grandkids across from you, rather then dedicating yourself to cooming and degeneracy between consooming.
no, what a strange fantasy you have
Based. There is no deeper meaning. Only comfort and lack of suffering matters.
uh okay, if you say so, man
I find pleasure in hatred of Hollywood moguls.
I'm sure they're all broke up over it while swimming in cocaine and toddler prostitutes
>Muh deep meaning
Existentialism was a mistake
>Muh nothing matters and life is meaningless
you are worth less than a fucking ant
just as you think ants are worthless there are other beings that you can't see, watch any human goal as worthless
>There is no way to refute this.
My deep sense of meaning is to kill communists, israelites, homosexuals, but it's still illegal (for now) so I have to distract myself until the time comes.
Everyone on earth knows that pleasure is good. "Le deep meaning" is r*ddit shit for joyless libs.
I'm a NEET hedonist and i love it. Sorry if you fell for some "meaningful purpose" meme
theres meaningful purpose in advancing evolution through your children but theyve effectively brainwashed the unwashed masses into consumerism instead
at least you're being selected against, its sad but necessary
I'm not into consumerism. Also i have sex, something you are in desperately need to do
>theres meaningful purpose in advancing evolution through your children
And what exactly the purpose of doing this?
achieve the god form eventually
or you can go the lazy way and do it through ai which will invariably determine humans are the root of all problems and start making t100s
>achieve the god form eventually
What the FUCK are you rambling about, schizoid? The extinction of all life is inevitable no matter what you do or think. It's just a fact you have to accept and move on.
you're just mediocre bud, probably phoneposting too
stop being reactionary
>ignoring the truth
A sign of a weak mind.
>achieve the god form eventually
look at this glorified ape and laugh
The god form, or apotheosis, comes from memes not genes.
You could be a breeder christcuck, but your children will rightly reject the excesses of your chrietcuckery… and upload the far superior enlightenment memes which I so happen to be a repository of.
Alot of shudras here
what if my deep sense of meaning is to distract myself with pleasure. Philosotard debunked.
I work in the space industry, and I autistically pretend my life is an anime where I eventually explore the universe and essentially become god.
I prefer this over a job/life where I sell insurance and watch tv to escape wagie hell.
Have you read Frankl's Man's Search for Meaning. If you've read it, you'd know he can't be trusted.
the "life has no meaning" meme is just a massive cope for betas and incels to justify how miserably they have failed at life and how they prefer to blame life itself rather than to venture into something new and change the shitty, pointless lives they have
I shit on hedonists, nihilsts and other kinds of human garbage like them
and how many children do you have?
you purpose in life is feed FED
>Why yes creating smart software solutions that increase shareholder profits by .01 percent gives meaning to my life.
>It just does ok!
>everything is about profit
Write a book that means something to you
Work for NASA
Join the Peace Corps
Lots of options out there besides working for meaningless shekels
My meaning in life is to laugh and ridicule pretentious NPC biorobots like you.
i guarantee you're single with no kids
It's THE most pedestrian normalfag stance. The fact that there's people here who unironically think that is truly grim.
doesn't make it less true
you think life is meaningless because you failed at life, end of story
>failed at life
By what metric? The ability to bend the knee to israelites?
>hurr le joos
I can tell why your life is shit mate
>I don’t bow and scrape to bankers
Dishonesty is not charming, anon.
Saying da israelites is a dumb way to show someone how the world works, yeah. Bankers run the world is what he should have started with.
What about people who "succeeded" at life and still think that it's meaningless?
>inb4 then they failed if they haven't found meaning
This circular logic betrays your retarded dishonesty. Meaning and success are in no way related, and you and others retards only deluding themselves trying to escape the hard truth.
"well, at least my life had meaning" is just a massive cope from retarded homosexuals to justify how they wasted their whole life doing shit they don't enjoy and to distract from the reality that they will be completely forgotten a month after they die.
Agreed. Nihilism is the ultimate form of cowardice.
I'll agree to that as well. I was hit hard by it in my early-mid 20s, but my good friends and family helped me realize the folly of it.
>Why yes I do let other people do the thinking, inventing, creating while I enjoy myself
, how could you tell?
I was literally contemplating jacking off just now until I saw this thread. Thanks OP
>NOO YOU CAN'T JUST LIVE A CHILL LIFE AND HAVE FUN WITH YOUR FRIENDS!!
>t. some depressed 19th century "philosopher" who died from cholera at age 39
If you’ve found a deep sense of meaning it just means you’re a brainlet who can’t get to a deeper sense where that meaning comes into question again.
Brainlets get the rope.
there is no deeper sense of meaning tho
Meaning is a LARP. You know deep down it's all fake.
Yeah just look at the etymological roots of the word, Middle Ages Germanic for “mind”.
How deep and not-circular could that even be?
most people are ambitionless sods that just consoom. that's just the cold hard truth.
the first step is to realize that if you phrase a question stupidly, you will of course not be able to solve it
what is the meaning of a rock?
what is the meaning of a dog?
what is the purpose of life?
There’s nothing wrong with media, chud
name someone who has never been bored or not reached for the nearest easiest solution to boredom.
What does it mean that their hair color is the same as the TVs shadow?
this is not a good board for philosophy
especially not on the weekends
It’s a good board for philosophy, just, not academic philosophy.
Finding pleasure or, rather, avoiding suffering in life, is all the "meaning" anyone needs. It's what it all boils down to. No matter what people try to dress it up as, finding some degree of enjoyment in your life is all they really want.
>The last man (German: Letzter Mensch) is a term used by the philosopher Friedrich Nietzsche in Thus Spoke Zarathustra to describe the antithesis of his theorized superior being, the Übermensch, whose imminent appearance is heralded by Zarathustra. The last man is the archetypal passive nihilist. He is tired of life, takes no risks, and seeks only comfort and security. Therefore, The Last Man is unable to build and act upon a self-actualized ethos.
>Nietzsche warned that the society of the last man could be too barren and decadent to support the growth of healthy human life or great individuals. The last man is only possible by mankind having bred an apathetic person or society who loses the ability to dream, to strive, and who become unwilling to take risks, instead simply earning their living and keeping warm. The society of the last man is antithetical to Nietzsche's theoretical will to power, the main driving force and ambition behind human nature, according to Nietzsche, as well as all other life in the universe.
Ignorance is bliss. Only people above a certain level of self-awareness and introspection are capable of both generating and perceiving the hole caused by a lack of meaning.
The majority of humanity is quite simply at their greatest contentment to have a tasty meal, family and friends, and excitement, day in, day out.
They are unconcerned by a search for purpose, and you cannot discuss the idea with them as the concept is beyond their ken.
For the rest of us, the statement is true. However, note that it doesn't say that ALL pursuit of pleasure is a distraction; only that pleasure CAN be used as a distraction.
That has to be carefully taken into account, including the risk that a "sense of meaning" will be degrade into a source of fanatical accomplishment. Gender and political extremists, for instance, have to be reminded that they're going to die and they should chill out because most of their goals are dubious if not meaningless.
the difference between nihilism and buddhism is a good night's sleep
I refute saving fuzzy images as PNG when they should be JPG. There is no reason to save an already blurry image as a PNG. PNGs are only for sharp vector art renders and captures that save cleanly. That's 600k of wasted space.
