"all these pot prophets have such thin skin" (paraphrased)

Every single person that i have heard complain about "X group has such thin skin" is always the most touchy narcissistic assholes ever, something along the phrase "cishet tears" "liberal tears" or similar cases.

Assuming a closed universe, we have done and will do the same sequence of actions for basicly, eternity.

Why assume a closed universe?

I too thought that a closed universe was a given, but if you are more up to date you could explain?

Pent speaks of how we are physically bound and determined but also that our consciousness automatically negates that... but that very well could be the illussion of free will.

Anyhow, for those that missed it, i act AS IF we had free will and accountability for our actions.

And TBH, from what little i know about science, i do believe in determinism.

BUT, i act and pretend AS IF we did have will and accountability for our actions - theres no net benefit in acting umder assumption of determinism.

I would say, hold a bit of respect for what they did in their past context... but in a symbolycal sense one has to kill its idols, try to outbest them.... were nit doing them a favour by rehashing their words instead of building above and beyond them.

I'm talking about it because I think the millienium old children is a story concept that practically writes itself!
This! The actual rationale for suggesting it is pretty weak. Like, "drugs make time slow down, let's isolate that property of drugs and work out how doses correspond to time" weak as far as I can tell. But that it was suggested is worth discussion, IMO, because it's a fucked up suggestion.
Technically, magnetic pulses to certain parts of the brain can also speed or slow our perception of time, which would probably do less damage then drugging up prisoners minds

motherfuckin magnets, how do they work?
Transcranial magnetic pulses (TCM) are one of the newest alternatives to electroshock therapy, the principle being that they can do the same job as electroshock without the possibility of giving you amnesia afterwards. Since your neurons fire when they're charged a certain way, they can use magnets instead of electricity to stimulate parts of the brain that arent working correctly

Interesting, ive always felt that electrical tampering with the brain would only equate to frying some "circuits".

Well, its up to the person's choice to die or not from a headwound, since the police only has fuzzy warm intentions to incapacitate, and thats what matters, good intentions.

Does violence decrease, or does it simply transform? (i understand PHYSICAL violence is going down, but theres many types of violence)

Does violence manifest nowadays economically more than before? Or is it transformed to psychological violence? Symbolical?

I want a drug that makes prisoners feel like they've only been in for 8 hours, but actually makes them serve 1000 years.

Not for any particular reason, mind.  Just because.

Meth or any stimulant can help with that.

Or Kill Me / Re: Why Paganism is Crap, parts I-V
« on: March 19, 2014, 08:23:54 pm »

Idk, i feel like paganism is the fetishization/erotization/sensualization of rituals... i mean, orthodox religions have rituals, but they are usually ascetic and revolve around some type of physical or mental puniwhment. Thats a fundamental difference and similarity towarss orthodoxy.

Also, I came to the Principia Discordia forum to find like-minded individuals and have some fun.

For some reason I, like it appears so many others, am ruining the awesome fun all you guys usually have around here.

If any one of you, any one of you at all wants me to leave and not come back I'm cool with that. All you have to do is post a picture of some ruby slippers and say 'There's no place like home" three times and I will leave without question or comment.

I'm honestly not trying to mess things up for anyone. I just don't think this forum jives with me.

Eh, upon revision i think its Lo5, but im amusing myself for such connection.  :lulz:
