“Is that how you yourself want to be treated?
Ok I’ll give it to you ….
Let’s see …
You are embarrassing yourself.
Fantasy is not a real option Jxxx. It is unbecoming for you to be one. A fantasist.
You are corear Fantasy is the exact opposite of what I suggested. Running away from pain and hiding oneself in false narratives.
You have found a great narrative . The one that says no narratives exist. Perfect hiding place. But i see you. Look at your amazing potential ! Hidden. Hiding . When a man as intelligent and capable of leadership such as yourself is rotting in a philosophical backwater that justifies cowardice, and inaction what are his friends to do?!
The house is on fire , people are dying and the man says let it burn, in fact let’s make sure it gets hotter. Read an A level ecology text book. If your philosophy allows you to place your opinions over scientific theory and evidence all you prove is a hidden arrogance . If a patient is ill you treat the root cause or you break your oath to do no harm. Flat. Simple as that . The only case where provocation has a purpose is in outing idiocy .
I once wished the world to collapse that human civilisation would destroy itself .
But it’s a weed smokers teenage fantasy . I know cos I was one when had it .
No one can live by that philosophy. There’s zero integrity in it. It’s childish.
Sorry to be blunt , but I’m not going to help you screw yourself out of politeness.
It either will burn itself out in you , or you will burn out in it.
That is the Truth.
I suggest you deal with your pain like an adult instead.
And that’s a concrete suggestion, with an offer of support attached.
You want to discuss life with me, fine, but you need to quit your addiction to nihilism first .
Otherwise what’s the point. You are spinning your tires in the mud.
If you have a real response to what I’m saying table it.
If not . Back down. You are totally outgunned . I know your position and it is based in and justifies flagrant irresponsibility.
Your my friend .
But Jesus you are in need of more help than Sxxx. At least she has never given up on Life. Wtf.
There’s some stoking for you. Enjoy!”

WOW! Is McKenzie Wark my sex/flesh-mate?! What’s that?? It is a “soul-mate” or “twin flame” who is more your bodily twin/partner than a psychological/spiritual/romantic match. I used to say I am a male lesbian, which is still true…… Remember?

What does the question “What is the meaning of life?” entail?
My reading philosophy is totally useless, because it is neither practically helpful in improving the quality of my life (or spiritual work), nor am I an academic philosopher, when it would have professional/economic value.
