It's more to do with Jabhat al-Nusra anyway.

Was poking about briefly for ISIS stuff. This link is 404.

I see exactly what you mean and that would be very effective as well, and prettier.

I was thinking to fill in the empty sky to left with text and draw the eye across it by having the subject to the right. Also subtle symbol in having the camera ultimately looking at nothing. Having the camera look at text would be quite symbolically effective as well. The given message might determine what would be best.

I carry out 'altruistic acts' which make others feel good.

This makes me feel good.


I see no downside to this.
Smart man.

Sometimes simplicity is better than deep thinking.

Even the sky is symbolically perfect.  Overcast and grey as hell.

Definitely. There's a lot going on in that picture.

The photo quality itself looks like a still image taken from surveillance footage.

The layout is ideal for a text caption as well, with a little cropping right of the flag.

I'm currently in too good a mood for writing such, and wish to stay here, but the truthiness of the image speaks for itself.
huh.
I would crop the left, so the CCTV camera is the subject and the flag is a cape.

This needs to be on a punk rock album cover.

Existential angst. The only problem that money can't solve.


How I got over my first wave of it was through Stirner, Camus, Wittgenstein, and other assorted men with too much time.

Now my world view is something like, everything is in your power to acquire, but none of it matters, and even if it did that's only your perception there's 3 billion other perceptions.

It's self affirming, to think that I can do anything, I can make a fool of myself as much as I want, I can waste my time in 'escapism' as much as I want. Be that escapism video games, helping the homeless, or perfecting a skill. Either way it loops back to me feeding my ego, which my ego eventually just doesn't matter. I'll die eventually and then people will forget about me and I won't exist anymore, or I'll become the next Gandhi or Hitler, people will remember me for years, and then I won't enjoy that because I'll be dead. 



The ego matters,  just not as much as it thinks it does. Still, like the body, it must be properly fed and exercised to maintain healthy function. A very great part of suffering is one form or another of poor health. Much of the rest is suffering inherited from previous suffering in others.

If oblivion is a certainty why waste time and risk suffering worming around upon the Earth? Enjoyment is no excuse, you can have eternal nothingness right now with no waiting.

Unless you're incorrect about the oblivion. If there is more than life as perceived by the ego then what?

also

No posterity can last forever, but the effects of your life WILL influence all future outcomes that it may.
Should you absolve yourself of such responsibility because you've reasoned an oncoming, absurdity implying, oblivion?

These are sincere questions. I have only had opportunity to read 'The Stranger' from the above listed. If you have absorbed them then perhaps by discussion I will understand their ideas better. I don't have the time to do the reading without canceling other projects right now.

I don't just off myself because I'm not going to take the universes shit, I'll be happy with the oblivion.

But every thing you do is just ego and power struggles.

Even altruistic acts only serve to benefit you.

Your definition of self does not include enough others!

Overall mistaken. If you don't want discussion fine, but you seem to be mistaking assumption and personal assertion for truth.
