    so what's your boredom like, anyway? is it stable, but annoying, angry, or is it close to fear.. stinging emptiness?
    Hmm. I can't relate to the one I have been any more. It sort of vanished when I got the insight that the only constant in the world is change. o.O
    That insight occurred after having all values I've ever created within me deleted until I reached "you cannot terminate this process, it is vital for the system" and ended up with Feelings as my vital way of living.
    And since then there's no boredom within sight.

    This is so incredibly accurate for me. "Bored" is just a word. Once you harnass your imagination amply enough, you'll learn about the 1:168 rule (1 hour outside a week). Think about something until you forget about time!

    If the patterns around you showed the endless routine of nothing ever new, and that nothing ever changed. That whatever you tried to do to change it, ended up in the same state as before. People around you were so predictable that nothing felt real any more nor fascinating. To never see change. (Yes, I know now that I was delusional and didn't understand/see change as it happens, though at the time it felt as real as anything else.)

    I did do things. I did try to change the pattern but I all I did always ended up in nothing.
    I can totally relate! I was thinking this the other day, actually. I joke about how I have to create my own reality because I hate reality. Anything to entertain myself! But, as you said, it always ends up as nothing, so it's like you have to try to keep this sustained motion of awesome... which is... tiring. But, it's not boring. And, I hate boring more. I don't think there is necessarily a cure for it, but I think if I was running this operation with someone else who was equally as starved for stimulation as I was... it'd be a lot easier to keep it going.

    If I don't have enough time to myself, I get bored with life routines. Being around people who enjoy what I enjoy helps me not get bored, though.

    everything is always the same. yes it's changing, but it's changing by itself. it's around me. it ignores me. it locks me in. eyes only. no touching. forever. why do i have to exist eternally, when i am nothing at all?

    Do you exist eternally?
    And what is beuty if not a sign of never ending change from one point to another in a constant flux?

    I get bored very easily. In fact I would say that I live 80% of my life in boredom and restlessness. It's weird because it doesn't seem to be connected to whether I'm interested in something or not. It has to be the most interesting thing on earth to me to keep my attention. Because I feel bad about and because I'm so used to it, I don't really tell people. In some ways the word 'bored' doesn't seem to really cover the sensation properly.

    I don't even know what is to be done to overcome it. Although, one thing that helps for me (temporarily) is to have little side projects that you work on - things that interest you, challenge you and/or expand your mind. Learning a language is good, or just reading up on a subject that interests you in order to understand it better. The best thing is when these projects then become minor obsessions and you start to get excited about delving into them every day. You have to be pro-active, though - you have to jump start yourself.

    there's two words in Swedish, one that covers "from time to time restlessness" and one that covers "Life is not, despair and bore". I think there's two in the English language too, I just haven't got the synonym correctly formed in my head just yet.

    That's interesting. Its like a scale of how serious the feeling is. A moderate passing feeling or a deep melancholy.

    In English being 'bored' means to find things dull and uninteresting, and can be also associated with tiredness (eg. "I tired of the conversation quickly"). 'Restlessness' covers my situation more. Its related to dissatisfaction, agitation and the lack of a serenity in mind (and/or body).
