either existential dread or realizing that having a job (even the sort of job I thought I would enjoy) blows and like 80% of your waking hours will be spent doing it, commuting to/from it, worrying about it, or unwinding from it when you get home without doing anything productive until you're finally old enough to retire and start the downward spiral towards death

I remember going to my first post-school job and realizing I had nothing to look forward to. No summer vacation. No goals like tests to work towards. My job would provide me nothing but monotony for 30 years in the best case scenario.

that i came out of my dad's penis...as a sperm, the same one that comes out of mine...

then death became something real that will definitely happen to me.

because i thought of life as special before that moment, so even in knowing about death up until then, i never felt it in my being or let it penetrate my sense of the magical in life.

after that moment, i think all magic in me vanished as if by a violent implosion.

im open to the idea of an existence after death in some form that is beyond earthly comprehension, but now its also the matter of heaven or hell on my mind, so im not better off, really.

sperm man, why did i have to make the connection that I WAS A SPERM AT ONE POINT?

so, in other words, what you are all referring to itt is death, but without a net called god to catch you when you fall, right?

otherwise, what is the dread of existence if its all ordained by an all powerful and wise creator?

If you are young and healthy, you have no idea how you will die. You might get shot while being robbed and instantly die.

Death isn't anything to fear. Covid has taught us that.

A few bad ones I can think of:

1. the realization upon hitting adulthood that the women I had so looked up to and respected (mother, parents friends, all my teachers and principals) were just older versions of the super dumb sluts i knew from my own generation of girls. That floored me.

2. the realization upon hitting sexual boredom in marriage that it was not a fluke - that all men are designed by nature to lose sexual interest in their wives, and that all the adult men I knew as a kid were fantasizing about other women, often my teenage peer girls.

Basically 1 and 2 are the same thing: upon becoming an adult I realized there was no magic threshold, that adults are just older children, as fucked up and dumb as we were, and that... here's the terrifying part... NO ONE KNOWS WHAT THEY ARE DOING, NO ONE IS IN CHARGE HERE

The idea of no one being in charge is one of the things that most separates liberals and conservatives.

Liberals think someone's at the wheel and if you control the wheel then you dictate everything. Conservatives are just trying to keep the boat from flipping over because they realize no one's actually in control of it.

ok, ill go deeper and be more honest.

ive at some point realized im all alone in this existence and nobody truly exists except me.

it was all just me, and will be me dying alone. i was just fussing and fighting with nothing. and it was all for nothing, anyways. if you think about it, im not so crazy to think that there is only me and nothing else. what difference will it make once i die? except, unless it does, and then ill be sorry i ever truly even considered this for even a second.

i guess existential dread or chaos or whatever. i was diagnosed with cancer when i was 9 and given like a 30% chance of survival, so I was forced to really confront my own mortality at a fairly young age. had lots of friends in treatment that died over those years, some with the same cancer that i had, and it just seemed so random and fucked up that we'd be made to suffer like that. battled survivor's guilt for a lot of my early adulthood that left me riddled with anxiety. felt a lot of pressure to do something really great since i was given a "second chance" at life, and that anxiety completely paralyzed me. took me a real long time to say fuck it, and just roll with an IDGAF mentality, but once I did, life became so much more bearable. i will live out an unimpressive and unimportant existence, but that's okay, since we all do to a certain extent.

a few xo posts had a strong effect on me:

1. the post with the stream of consciousness in a female mind. sugar sugar chads dick beckys mean sugar, etc. Smashed my ability to believe in women

2. the one about blm and black criminality. effectively removed me from being able to participate in the national religion, isolating me from almost everyone I know

3. the trinity of threads (castro/purell, suicide banker, and meriwether lewis). these legit changed my soul. I realized how short life is and how meaningless this white collar stuff is. i was able to see that men like castro and lewis actually lived, while i wasnt

A lot of truth to this and it hurts.

Men are far more sensitive, far more sentimental, and get deeply emotionally hurt by the woman they love far easier / more often than do women. We were told for years that it’s the opposite.

Lots of good stuff above. For me the most personal one is that parents do not have a strong marriage. Was told this very plainly by my dad in my mid-20s and he was telling me not to make some of the same mistakes. It’s crushing. I think about it every day - how deeply unhappy they are together and how this has been the case since I was a kid. It’s so disappointing. To their credit I had no idea while growing up.

They’re still together but my mom keeps busy with friends and my dad has a sidepiece he’s very open about.

They’ve been dead bedroom the whole time, apparently. My dad thinks she’s a great mother, grandmother, and bookkeeper for the family, but there’s a ton of baggage because of the NO SEX that’s built up over >30 years. I love them but finding out how deeply unhappy they’ve been for years and seeing what their twilight years are (ships passing in the night instead of going on those boomer overpriced river cruises and having baked salmon dinners at 5pm together) is sad. They don’t even sleep in the same bed anymore.

When I realized no matter good looking and successful I am, I am still 5'9", and that cuts my dating options probably in half.

First time I realized I'm destined to be miserable and alone.

I'm actually dating a chick right now who is great on paper, but I know it's temporary.

1. Adults don’t know anything and are just big kids

2. There is no evidence of God’s existence or of an afterlife, and we will be terrified of death up until the end

3. As we age we are just waiting to come down with a terrible disease at any moment

4. There are no do overs in life , would love to hit revert-to-previous-save sometime or multiple saves ago

5. America is obsessed with money and it’s really sick

6. Our leaders don’t care about the country at all, just their own personal enrichment , and you are not let into the leadership club if you aren’t this way

7. People care about social acceptance way way way more than they care about truth

8. Liberals are truly inhumanly evil & cannot be negotiated with

The cave

SOCRATES: Imagine this: People live under the earth in a cavelike dwelling. Stretching a long way up toward the daylight is its entrance, toward which the entire cave is gathered. The people have been in this dwelling since childhood, shackled by the legs and neck..Thus they stay in the same place so that there is only one thing for them to look that: whatever they encounter in front of their faces. But because they are shackled, they are unable to turn their heads around.

A fire is behind them, and there is a wall between the fire and the prisoners

SOCRATES: Some light, of course, is allowed them, namely from a fire that casts its glow toward them from behind them, being above and at some distance. Between the fire and those who are shackled [i.e., behind their backs] there runs a walkway at a certain height. Imagine that a low wall has been built the length of the walkway, like the low curtain that puppeteers put up, over which they show their puppets. The images carried before the fire

SOCRATES: So now imagine that all along this low wall people are carrying all sorts of things that reach up higher than the wall: statues and other carvings made of stone or wood and many other artifacts that people have made. As you would expect, some are talking to each other [as they walk along] and some are silent.

GLAUCON: This is an unusual picture that you are presenting here, and these are unusual prisoners.

SOCRATES: They are very much like us humans, I [Socrates] responded.

What the prisoners see and hear

SOCRATES: What do you think? From the beginning people like this have never managed, whether

on their own or with the help by others, to see anything besides the shadows that are [continually] projected

on the wall opposite them by the glow of the fire.

GLAUCON: How could it be otherwise, since they are forced to keep their heads immobile for their

entire lives?

SOCRATES: And what do they see of the things that are being carried along [behind them]? Do they not see simply these [namely the shadows]?

GLAUCON: Certainly.

SOCRATES: Now if they were able to say something about what they saw and to talk it over, do you not think that they would regard that which they saw on the wall as beings?

GLAUCON: They would have to.

SOCRATES: And now what if this prison also had an echo reverberating off the wall in front of them [the one that they always and only look at]? Whenever one of the people walking behind those in chains (and carrying the things) would make a sound, do you think the prisoners would imagine that the speaker were anyone other than the shadow passing in front of them?

GLAUCON: Nothing else, by Zeus!

SOCRATES: All in all, I responded, those who were chained would consider nothing besides the shadows of the artifacts as the unhidden.

GLAUCON: That would absolutely have to be.

PART TWO:

THREE STAGES OF LIBERATION

FREEDOM, STAGE ONE

A prisoner gets free

SOCRATES: So now, I replied, watch the process whereby the prisoners are set free from their chains and, along with that, cured of their lack of insight, and likewise consider what kind of lack of insight must be if the following were to happen to those who were chained.

Walks back to the fire

SOCRATES: Whenever any of them was unchained and was forced to stand up suddenly, to turn around, to walk, and to look up toward the light, in each case the person would be able to do this only with pain and because of the flickering brightness would be unable to look at those things whose shadows he

previously saw. Is questioned about the objects

SOCRATES: If all this were to happen to the prisoner, what do you think he would say if someone

were to inform him that what he saw before were [mere] trifles but that now he was much nearer to beings; and that, as a consequence of now being turned toward what is more in being, he also saw more correctly? The answer he gives

SOCRATES: And if someone were [then] to show him any of the things that were passing by and forced him to answer the question about what it was, don't you think that he would be a wit's end and in addition would consider that what he previously saw [with is own eyes] was more unhidden than what was now being shown [to him by someone else].

GLAUCON: Yes, absolutely.

Looking at the fire-light itself

SOCRATES: And if someone even forced him to look into the glare of the fire, would his eyes not hurt him, and would he not then turn away and flee [back] to that which he is capable of looking at? And would he not decide that [what he could see before without any help] was in fact clearer than what was now being shown to him?

GLAUCON: Precisely.

FREEDOM, STAGE TWO

Out of the cave into daylight

SOCRATES: Now, however, if someone, using force, were to pull him [who had been freed from his chains] away from there and to drag him up the cave's rough and steep ascent and not to let go of him until he had dragged him out into the light of the sun... Pain, rage, blindness

SOCRATES: ...would not the one who had been dragged like this feel, in the process, pain and rage? And when he got into the sunlight, wouldn't his eyes be filled with the glare, and wouldn't he thus be unable to see any of the things that are now revealed to him as the unhidden?

GLAUCON: He would not be able to do that at all, at least not right away. Getting used to the light

SOCRATES: It would obviously take some getting accustomed, I think, if it should be a matter of taking into one's eyes that which is up there outside the cave, in the light of the sun.

Shadows and reflections

SOCRATES: And in this process of acclimitization he would first and most easily be able to look at

(1) shadows and after that (2) the images of people and the rest of things as they are reflected in water.

Looking at things directly

SOCRATES: Later, however, he would be able to view (3) the things themselves [the beings, instead of the dim reflections]. But within the range of such things, he might well contemplate what there is in the heavenly dome, and this dome itself, more easily during the night by looking at the light of the stars and the moon, [more easily, that is to say,] than by looking at the sun and its glare during the day.

GLAUCON: Certainly.

FREEDOM, STAGE THREE: THE SUN

Looking at the sun itself

SOCRATES: But I think that finally he would be in the condition to look at (4) the sun itself, not just at its reflection whether in water or wherever else it might appear, but at the sun itself, as it is in and of itself and in the place proper to it and to contemplate of what sort it is.

GLAUCON: It would necessarily happen this way.

Thoughts about the sun: its nature and functions

SOCRATES: And having done all that, by this time he would also be able to gather the following

about the sun: (1) that it is that which grants both the seasons and the years; (2) it is that which governs

whatever there is in the now visible region of sunlight; and (3) that it is also the cause of all those things

that the people dwelling in the cave have before they eyes in some way or other.

GLAUCON: It is obvious that he would get to these things -- the sun and whatever stands in its light

-- after he had gone out beyond those previous things, the merely reflections and shadows.

Thoughts about the cave

SOCRATES: And then what? If he again recalled his first dwelling, and the "knowing" that passes as

the norm there, and the people with whom he once was chained, don't you think he would consider himself

lucky because of the transformation that had happened and, by contrast, feel sorry for them?

GLAUCON: Very much so.

What counts for "wisdom" in the cave

SOCRATES: However, what if among the people in the previous dwelling place, the cave, certain

honors and commendations were established for whomever most clearly catches sight of what passes by

and also best remembers which of them normally is brought by first, which one later, and which ones at the

same time? And what if there were honors for whoever could most easily foresee which one might come by

next?

What would the liberated prisoner now prefer?

SOCRATES: Do you think the one who had gotten out of the cave would still envy those within the

cave and would want to compete with them who are esteemed and who have power? Or would not he or

she much rather wish for the condition that Homer speaks of, namely "to live on the land [above ground] as

the paid menial of another destitute peasant"? Wouldn't he or she prefer to put up with absolutely anything

else rather than associate with those opinions that hold in the cave and be that kind of human being?

GLAUCON: I think that he would prefer to endure everything rather than be that kind of human

being.

PART THREE:

THE PRISONER RETURNS TO THE CAVE

The return: blindness

SOCRATES: And now, I responded, consider this: If this person who had gotten out of the cave were

to go back down again and sit in the same place as before, would he not find in that case, coming suddenly

out of the sunlight, that his eyes ere filled with darkness?"

GLAUCON: Yes, very much so.

The debate with the other prisoners

SOCRATES: Now if once again, along with those who had remained shackled there, the freed person

had to engage in the business of asserting and maintaining opinions about the shadows -- while his eyes are

still weak and before they have readjusted, an adjustment that would require quite a bit of time -- would he

not then be exposed to ridicule down there? And would they not let him know that he had gone up but only

in order to come back down into the cave with his eyes ruined -- and thus it certainly does not pay to go up.

And the final outcome:

SOCRATES: And if they can get hold of this person who takes it in hand to free them from their

chains and to lead them up, and if they could kill him, will they not actually kill him?

GLAUCON: They certainly will.
