My pet hate is people who adopt a 'trendy' mental condition in casual conversation

"I'm a total psycho"

"I'm depressed"

"I'm a skitz"

I'm not a big fan of it either.  I wondered what you thought, to be honest.  With me, its because although I dropped the subject, I do love reading and learning about psychology.
"The thoughts of all men arise from the darkness. If you are the movement of your soul, and the cause of that movement precedes you, then how could you ever call your thoughts your own? How could you be anything other than a slave to the darkness that comes before? Only the Logos allows one to mitigate that slavery. Only knowing the sources of thought and action allows us to own our thoughts and our actions, to throw off the yoke of circumstance."

Psychology should be explored. Reading and learning is like reading and learning about anything from driving to fucking. Helps if you've fucked behind the wheel of an vehicle to get the whole picture.

Troof.  I may be a shitty scientist, but I've always had a knack for trying to think like other people.  Probably all that bloody chess and martial arts when I was a kid...

Advise make a choice between two options:

1 - get inside your own head and start hacking around, see what happens. Very large chance that if you are successful you will totally melt your mind. Psychotic breaks = no laughing matter. Can be tricky putting back together but good learning experience

2 - Follow occult system of your choosing. Some are better than others, many are total bollix. Approach like martial arts for your brain. Rituals = exercises/kata

Difference between 1&2 = difference between snowboarding and chess

Well, when I have the time over summer, I've got a book called "mind hacks" I'm going to play with.  I can probably upload it for those interested, there are over 100 "hacks" ranging from perception to social interaction.

I was going to mention psychotic breaks, but since you're already reading Poker With Cards, no need to say what I was going to.

I'm interested in mind hacks, sounds interesting :D

Would you die for me?

me and my friends strapped a frog with silly putty to a coke can full of gasoline and set it on fire, it was fucking awesome.

umm.

lighting living animals on fire is generally considered uncool.

They have a followup to that one too but this time it's mental exercises you can do to strengthen certain skills. They make a lot of good technical books.

Whats worse imo, is people who actually have said disorders, and fucking brag about them to get attention.

Like this?



Oh, and in case anyone was wondering, I would say most Discordians suffer from a rather mild form of anti-social personality disorder, but that is to be expected really.

Well, I don't know about you, but in the event the entire internet dies, I'm quite likely too busy scavenging through the remains of the country for food, water, weapons and loyal minions to worry about you guys.
