Examples, please?
Doomer meme, overall nihilistic tendencies. You know, the stuff that made Jordan Peterson rich from only saying that people shouldn't do self-destructive things.

Probably just my own skewed perspective, I'm knees deep in shit and trying to convince myself that it is all normal.

Still, I see so much of the attitude that goes "drink and be merry, world is gonna end soon and you're just lucky if you manage to die before that." around me that I can't help wondering; is this shit happening everywhere?

Speaking of aesthetics.

I feel like there's this movement in youth. They refuse the aesthetic of rich and successful. In fact they thrive to be the opposite. Instead of trying to claw their way up the pyramid to be the top dog who they've heard "ruins the stuff for everyone", They choose the path of least resistance and see what happens when they drill down.

Maybe the top isn't rising, but the bottom is falling off.

So are you advocating for a conspiracy-nerd utopia where "decentralized" order comes from spontaneously arising secret societies?
...Maybe...
Why?

Geez, I wonder how far up the top is...

Fascist discordianism would be basically pinealism. You just take the aesthetics and essence and wipe off all the parts that lead to people behaving unpredictably.

Imagine going to this giant fetishised hot dog stand every friday just to wait in line for hours as the local certified pope preaches about how this ritual is to remind you what crap all the other religions are.

I feel like a quick bio on each character would help my understanding. There's lot to swallow.

2. Gravitational time dilation is the effect by which objects pass through time at faster rates when under the effects of less gravity; as well as the inverse, objects pass through time at slower rates when under the effect of more gravity.

I don't know if I'm just interpreting this wrong, but haven't you got this one backwards? I saw the movie with black holes and shit, and when the astronauts go to the planet near the gravity well, they experience like couple hours of time, while for the dudes waiting on the spaceship it feels like years. So from the point of view of an outside observer time goes by faster under more gravity and slower under less gravity. Maybe there's just a perspective shift, but I'd like to have a clarification.

Also, about those hills. If a wave is traveling on a hill that is stretching/contracting, wouldn't the wave stretch/contract with the hill?

You base this all on physical laws derived by humans from the data we got by observing the TV-screens aliens put up in the sky. They are designed to almost but not quite to make sense so our top scientists waste infinite amount of time rather than come up with anything useful.

P.S. Wouldn't a lightwave traveling in decreasing gravity be analogous to one climbing up from a gravity well?

Musk should just buy some of that shit and film fake Mars landings on the Moon.

I had a thought, probably due to reading these.

Free will is something that is exercised when you don't know what is the best choice.
With perfect knowledge human being could navigate through his life always taking the best,
most fulfilling option every time they're presented with choice.
Like how particles choose to follow straight path, because changing the course would lose energy
and therefore shorten their lifespan.

More we see into the future,
more we see the consequences of our actions,
more we are bound to follow the path of least resistance.

That's why science has felt sinister to me for a while.
It ends up abstracting people,
first as cells in the body of the machine,
then some chemistry that fuels the planetary consciousness,
weird particles that speed around the interplanetary space,
and some strange interaction between stars
until we ultimately fade out into the background noise.

0/9, for lack of effort.

Back in my day, people WORKED for their trolls.

I apologize, my lifeforce is being sucked out of me to feed the destruction of everything you hold in any significance.

Well, at least you'll die first.

That's worth something.

How much that something is in food coupons?

You mean dollars?

You don't need an apocalypse to live in hell, dumbass.

And that's why oh so many of us don't give a flying bulldozer.

In fact it's one of the most logical things to wish for, you are physically unable to regret it after it's done.

Humans are all preppers. Animals better wake up before sun goes boom.
