  • [ – ] Dos_Gaming reply Okay... Then what did I do wrong to have the entire earth get fried with me being the only human left alive in the year 2782? No seriously... I don't think I did much wrong in life...
    • [ – ] Sectual parent reply That's a beautiful imagination. I feel like I just lived an entire life reading that.
      • [ – ] Dos_Gaming parent reply Why does nobody believe me!? I even set up my own theme tune and artist rendition of what the actual world looks like right now! I thought it might make people take me seriously! You guys love entertainers and listen to them all the time!
  • [ – ] SunsetPop reply Girl you need Jesus!
  • [ – ] Hypedrebel reply Karma is a bitch.... and then you marry one.
    • Sectual parent reply Muwahahaha bwahahaha! Indeed but what did you do to deserve marrying one? That's the question the vicious machine of life cycles us through to answer.
  • [ – ] witchkitch reply I deal with chronic pain that effects my mobility, and that at times is a seriously profound burden on my soul. Yet I practice gratitude, and I work towards solutions, and my suffering has given my life meaning. The way that I see it is that life is valuable because of two things: pleasure and meaning. I don't get to have a lot of the same pleasures as other people (primarily physical comfort), but I get to focus more on meaning. The ultimate hell to me is to be asleep, as you put it, but even for those people, they probably enjoy pleasure. I think that having kids might be part of the karmic cycle. It seems to me that the negative things in life must be around for the positive things to exist. If your child suffers, they probably won't just suffer, and if they do just suffer, they can always revert back to lifelessness. Your child isn't just born into the world unconsciously creating their own karma. You as a parent are the influence upon their mind that effects the karma they receive...more. You mold their minds, and you get influence over their level of awareness, and thus their karma. Also, the trend throughout history has been a reduction of suffering, and I think an abolishment of suffering is going to be profoundly widespread sometime soon, especially with the alteration of dna before birth. I think you're being way too one-sided here. Bringing someone into this life shouldn't be about how good or bad their life is, but rather that they get to participate in and experience life.
    • [ – ] witchkitch parent reply Also, I want to add that I think how you describe karma can often be described as causality. In context to raising a child, I think that one should be bold enough to plunge into it, despite the fact that something could go wrong. The things that can go wrong can be the things that go right, and from a karmic perspective, it could be that every negative thing has a positive correlate, even if the positive correlate is generated in the life of someone you don't even know. I think most of it is figuring out how to bring out the goodness and awareness out of your child, and society won't infringe upon the personal culture you show your child. You're obviously very precious, intelligent, and sweet, and I feel like it's good people like you that really should have children because you would have so much culture and perspective to share. There aren't a lot of girls that are as well-rounded and cool as you are, and if you aren't a shitty idiot or super basic like so many are, I say there's an ...moreeven greater responsibility that should be felt towards raising kids. Seems like you have a lot to offer is what I'm trying to say. I say this for your own good: you're too wrapped up in what can go wrong, and the inherent suffering in the world. You say yourself that life is awesome, and that's why giving life to someone is the greatest gift you can give. Some people do live perfect lives of joy and achievement. This world is not the world of suffering, this is an even playing field, and anything can happen, but not if you aren't around to experience it. With you being someone that is into exploring various potential realities of this world, I wish you would try to see the beauty in giving life, even into a dichotomous world of good and evil. Suffering is often transmuted into higher dimensionalities of meaning that wouldn't have been achieved otherwise. Like, straight up, my suffering guides me to new heights, and you know, let's say your child is fucked up somehow, you would be there for them to guide them through it. A bad situation could easily turn into a good one, and that's assuming they're born into a bad situation in the first place. Stress, anxiety, the hardships, they all play into building people up (assuming they don't destroy you). Stress/pressure in the physical world is what forms matter, and metaphysical stress causes the same type of formative change. I really hope you move on from your hard-line anti-natalist stance. Seems like an unrewarding place, both for you and potential offspring. Life is way too precious to not give the gift of life. <3
      • [ – ] witchkitch parent reply Don't let the millions of possibilities paralyze you. Without the possibility of something happening, there wouldn't be anything at all. Do you think the universe should have never existed?
        • Sectual parent reply “Also, the trend throughout history has been a reduction of suffering, and I think an abolishment of suffering is going to be profoundly widespread sometime soon, especially with the alteration of dna before birth.” It SOUNDS like it would be some kind of solution, doesn’t it? Alas… I believe that there is no way to ‘iron out’ the inherent existential suffering. You ‘trim’ it here, it’s gonna ‘grow out’ on the other side and set things off balance of there instead. I do not believe there is a way to minimize inherent suffering. There are ways to mitigate the suffering we could receive by the actions that we choose after we’re born. But that suffering inherent in life, there is no escaping. DNA tampering will only result in more karma with unforeseen consequences. There is no escape. “With you being someone that is into exploring various potential realities of this world, I wish you would try to see the beauty in giving life, even into a dichotomous world of ...moregood and evil.” Well I can’t seem to be able to shut off the natural urge to reproduce. It keeps showing up for me. It keeps rearing its ugly head and causing me to ‘seek a suitable mate’ etc. I try to keep control over those faculties, but I always find myself defaulting. Nature. What’re ya gonna do? “Like, straight up, my suffering guides me to new heights, and you know, let's say your child is fucked up somehow, you would be there for them to guide them through it. A bad situation could easily turn into a good one, and that's assuming they're born into a bad situation in the first place. “ I deeply respect your view point here, and I do agree with you. “Stress/pressure in the physical world is what forms matter, and metaphysical stress causes the same type of formative change.” Well said, and absolutely true. Friction. It’s such a strange dichotomy. I just find myself flabbergasted at this ‘life machine’… the ‘reality matrix’. It’s just… unbelievable. I get deeply involved in contemplating all these different aspects of existence, and these specific hangups recur. “Without the possibility of something happening, there wouldn't be anything at all. Do you think the universe should have never existed?” Again, well said. I do believe the universe should exist… because outside of existence is only nothingness. I am merely trying to figure out WHY it is the way it is, which I believe, is perhaps the entire point of existence and this ‘simulation’ in the first place. I’m just doing my part ;)
  • [ – ] KilledInAdvance reply very thought provoking. I like this.
  • [ – ] jarredjackson reply Yo. So, your VidMe cover photo is fuckin' dope!
    • Sectual parent reply Thanks Jarred baby. I was in bed naked checking out your profile photo just this morning thinking how rad you look.
  • YoungByron reply Thank You For. Following Me Back On Here.
  • [ – ] YoungByron reply Thank You For. Following Me Back On Here.
  • AntiBullshitMan reply "Life tho!" OMG Valley Girl cameo! Perfect line for her too. Still trying to figure out if this karma business contributes to (or subtracts from) your criticisms of procreation. Surely if you didn't believe any of the bad things in life were generated by karma, you'd still agree with the reasons against procreative hubris offered by us karma disbelievers. With or without karma, the borg is the borg.
  • [ – ] kendrakane reply hey! You are pretty!
