    I actually hadn't seen the ass until after I asked. Then I was even more confused haha. Your name didn't strike me as a chick name, but I try not to assume too much on here.

    And I am female.

    By the way, I imagine a lot of girls are very jealous of her ass.


    Also, what's your type (if you don't mind, know, and fit into one)?
    Wanna guess?
    Excuse me, but does this smell like chloroform to you?

    It is a fundamental hypothesis of this work that, not
    indifference, but an active blind spot to certain kinds of
    “truth”, certain kinds of objectivity, is the condition of
    biological human life. Martin Heidegger is what happens
    when one believes in one’s own emotions, i.e. poetry. I have
    correlated bioinconsistency and Heidegger’s being.
    Bioinconsistent-subjectivity normally overrides objectivity
    by preceding objectivity; it overrides equivalence with the
    larger physical environment. In this sense, subjectivity, i.e.
    concern with one’s survival, overrides a purely physicalmaterialistic
    observation of life. Biological self-preserving
    priorities can come in conflict with the priority of the
    objectivity of the observer.
    I think I like Mitchell Heisman.

    Sounds like rationalization of supposedly "objective" nihilism to me...

    Yes, most commit suicide because they are clinically depressed. This means they are suffering from a psychosis and they are psychotic. And in particular their emotions are out of touch with reality. And so they rationalise their psychotic emotions.

    And I guess that is what is happening here.

    Those who commit suicide because they rationalize the universe as meaningless have little concept of how to make commitments or realize subjective "truths".

    Wow, Nicodemus's quote took the words out of my mouth and channeled them through Spock.

    Depression=/=psychosis. For Christ's sake, don't confuse the two.

    I think it's interesting. Like any suicide note is. There is a book called Or Not To Be: A Collection of Suicide Notes.

    I was suicidal at one dark moment in my life and hospitalized for it. I can tell you that if you are suicidal you are completely delusional. You cannot detect that your thoughts are skewed. They are normal to you.

    You have your intellect but your thought processes are fractured. Your lines of thinking are forever viewed through a lens where you have no self-value. Truly if you commit suicide you do not love yourself - at all - and are incapable of receiving love or believing it to be something that can be held onto. It passes through you. Essentially, you are a ghost. So why not be one. Life will not change other than the fact you will not be there.

    No I have not read the 1,900 pages. Nor do I desire to because I have a strong feeling there is no optimism and no hope between those lines. The future is bleak and this world is doomed.

    Where does your self-value come from now?

    Clinical Depression is a psychosis like schizophrenia.

    And where the thoughts of schizophrenics are out of touch with reality, the emotions of the clinically depressed are out of touch with reality.

    It's interesting that the clinically depressed and their supporters deny that clinical depression is a psychosis. And they deny that the clinically depressed are psychotic. It is as though it is too insulting to admit that clinical depression is a psychosis. And to boot, it is lethal.

    But read DSM IV and see that both schizophrenia and clinical depression are psychoses.

    Of course confusion also sets in by conflating depression and clinical depression. They sound the same but are quite different. Depression is not a psychosis while clinical depression is a psychosis. That is why clinical depression is treated in a clinical setting by a psychiatrist. And many of us say we are depressed when we are feeling a bit low.
