>>24064873 The death drive forces us to desire a previous state of life, even when that state was painful for us. We are compulsed to repeat our terrible experiences over and over again. People who are abused keep getting abused because of a masochistic pleasure they derive from it. Happiness is not a natural state of body, only unhappiness and self-destruction, as every cell in our bodies tries to return to an inorganic state of being, a being before there was life.
>>24065394 That wasn't moving the goalposts faggot, I know what I meant when I made the thread. Most think the same things, mostly the things they are supposed to think about. Like mainstream shit and then controlled opposition. You can see that normies are always acting the same on social media, and real life. They care about what they're supposed to and do what they're supposed to. I'll rephrase the question that I originally said to get what I was thinking, why do we even have sentience when we model ourselves on the idea of conformity and acting the same as each other? Most are misusing it
In a vast universe that often seems sinister and unaware of us, we need the presence and shelter of love to transfigure our loneliness. This cosmic loneliness is the root of all inner loneliness. All of our life everything we do, think, and feel is surrounded by nothingness. Hence we become afraid so easily. The fourteenth century mystic Meister Eckhart says that of human life stands under the shadow of the nothingness. He calls it the 'umbra nihili'. People don't like to feel alone, so they do things to blend in with the crowd, they adopt mannerisms, ways of thought, and philosophies that on the surface seem popular and safe.
Humans evolved as pack primates. It's instinctual.
But unfortunately, you've bought into a false narrative in the exact way that you decry other people for.
"normies" isn't even a real concept.
It's a way of de-humanizing people you deem as your competition.
In my experience, even the most casual, well-mannered person can be extremely fucked up. The truth is, you don't know what they truly care about, nor do you know what they're doing 100 percent of the time. People are great that way, and if you want to truly know, you're going to have to learn a new art of listening and watching.

What revelation does watching people reveal? How do you reveal what's hidden if you can't reveal anything that belongs to you? Why lie to ourselves when the abyss has already broke what little humanity you have left?
