    Wow! I really relate to all this and i'm not sure if thays a good or a bad thing!?!?

    I have a sorta constant fear of boredom that lurks at the back of my mind and makes me want to do shit all the time. Shit that actually means something. Like today i spent most of the day sleeping or playing games while a little vioce screamed "WTF do you think your doing! This is just pointless shit your doing!"

    ^ Yeah jenocyde i think about survival stuff all the time. Like after discovering the fallout series i keep on thinking of ways to survive a nuclear wasteland!
    "I'd never die for my beliefs, I might be wrong"

    "Is it not enough to see that a garden is beautiful without having to believe there are fairys at the bottom of it too"

    "Intelligence is being able to hold too opposing views in the mind at the one time without going crazy" - Now all I need to figure out is if I'm intelligent or crazy!

    Did you ever read The Life of Pi? You should, if you haven't. It's a different type of survival story...

    I was always completely cool with my own imminent death. But I am older now and it feels like a long cape around me. I'm used to the feel of it, but it covers things now whips around me and has this dramatic flair about it. I don't know what to say. I don't know if it makes anything more meanigful or more meaningless. I just feel it now and I never did before.

    I don't necessarily want to die I just feel like I need a reason to live and a lot of times I don't know what that reason is other than habit.

    I don't want to explain it and tell you the story. I just think you would enjoy it... It's an adventure story that's very cerebral.

    ennui..japanese word for eternal. i learned it recently and never heard it
    before, but now I've heard it on here and in a description from one chara-
    cter of another in a book I just finished reading. I guess my ennui would
    be anything challenging...I'm not afraid of failure because learning how to
    do things that seem difficult or too much of a challenge to others so they
    write them off as things they just don't see much use for and turn to mu-
    ndane repetitiousness to make things easier...simplified...because I want
    them to become possibilities and stop being fantasies...I guess day dream-
    ing is my ennui...I've realized things catch our interests for a reason and
    even though you can't rationally explain it, you can't pretend they don't
    matter like other things you decided to give up doing...you just feel some-
    thing different...and you don't know what it can turn into if you don't try.

    Oh that's beautiful that it means eternal in japanese.

    Ennui, in the latin based translation, is boredom. But a very severe and depressing boredom - an emptiness - and I think that's what this thread meant. But I like the japanese definition much better...
