  • Finding comfort in boredom.
    But, can't their e a moment of inhibition in regards to the incessant arising of wants and desire. Some ough call this death or the relinquishment of desire.

    It's a feeling that doesn't want to consider the negative association with anaphor and boredom.

    I'l call it a template for eudemonia.
  • Finding comfort in boredom.


    One the contrary. Boredom only attained a negative association with the rise of the ROmantics and such.

    It's a battle against the different terms used to classify a "disease" or "ailment".

    Therefore, if you're feeling bored, everything is alright!

    Huuurayy.
  • Finding comfort in boredom.
    Maybe the word youre looking for is flow, or meditative bliss, rather than boredom.Joshs

    I believe that meditative bliss is the final telos of brute boredom. SO, to recreate the situation in a different light, then boredom is simply an artifact of a life in balance.

    I'm surprised more mature readers of this forum, haven't found solitude in "boredom"? Isn't that a sign that everything is proceeding well and such?

    So, boredom need not be evil. It can be good too.
  • My moms being a bitch
    Can anyone give me any advice to better my situation?Perchperkins

    I suggest looking into a IHSS (In Home Supportive Services) equivalent in your state. It has been a Godsend for me and my mom. We kind of exploit the system; but, you can register as a caregiver to your mother who sounds like she is disabled and gets paid for the services and duties done for her.

    Best of luck.

  • How does motivation work with self-reflection? Is it self-deception? What a conception!
    This might come off as disingenuous; but, the Nazi's hanged signs stating something to the matter that work gives one freedom, feeding the belief that if the poor Semite worked hard enough s/he might escape the confines of the concentration camp.

    Analogously, we undertake work in our lives. If we were 100% rational about the whole thing, then we would most likely turn inwards and start by altering our needs and then wants rather than the world to make it conform to how we want it to look like.
  • Quantum experiment undermines the notion of objective reality
    I think the bigger import of this story is that wavefunction collapse fails under such an interpretation of results.
  • Quantum experiment undermines the notion of objective reality
    IN case you post this on PF, please send a link. I stopped posting there indefinitely.
  • Quantum experiment undermines the notion of objective reality
    In that case, you have drawn the exact opposite conclusion to what the experiment suggests.Wayfarer

    Yes; but, there can be no modality without the observer effect on a macroscopic scale concerning n>1 observers, such as has been demonstrated here? So, what's the big fuss about?
  • Will we make a deal with technology, whatever it is, wherever it comes from, whatever it demands, in
    No, I don’t think I know the Singularity movement.Brett

    It's pretty big. Have a read about what Ray Kurzweil thinks about it.

  • Quantum experiment undermines the notion of objective reality
    The key piece I took away from the article is the following:

    The experiment produces an unambiguous result. It turns out that both realities can coexist even though they produce irreconcilable outcomes, just as Wigner predicted.

    So, they can co-exist as long as there is something that can be agreed about between observers. So, we might be talking about the same thing despite having differing views about it.
  • Will we make a deal with technology, whatever it is, wherever it comes from, whatever it demands, in
    I think that’s what I’m suggesting in my op.Brett

    Oh, cool. Glad we can agree on something here.

    Have you or do you subscribe to the SIngularity movement? Or have heard of it?
  • Will we make a deal with technology, whatever it is, wherever it comes from, whatever it demands, in
    I don't quite see any intermediate entity that would be some arbitrage between the demands that we will face in the future due to our collective lifestyles and choosing that between comfort or sacrifice for that comfort.

    Rather, the self-aggrandizing nature of technology will finally encompass its creators (most likely), instead of being treated as a means towards an/some end.
  • Were Baby Boomers Really The Worst?
    I think the concept of generations is becoming subject to increasing scrutiny and examination, now that practically everything of interest is becoming documented and broadcast on a medium that itself is self-organizing.

    Some people have prophesized that the concept of "generations" will become irrelevant in a post-consumerist future or at least a consumerist society that faces no challenges of self-created negative externalities such as the internet is. The information age will face another rebirth and contraction, that could as well continue indefinitely as long as there are things to talk about.

    Anyway, just another opinion that needed expressing.
