In my previous post, I criticized the positive thinking and subjective reality schools of thought.
There is always more advice on self-improvement. The trick is to apply the advice that best fits your situation.
I generally recommend the following sequence:
1. Basic health
3. Basic self-tracking
2. Basic cashflow
3. Basic social
4. Basic meditation
Lots of options.
If you are at Level 0 and biology is compromised, it is a bad idea to attempt positive thinking / subjective reality techniques.…

Reality is subjective! Mind over matter! Never quit! Never say die! Stay positive!
Ha very ha.
Volunteer at a nursing home or hospice. That is your endpoint. You are mulch.
The only question is how much screaming there’ll be inbetween.
Reality regulary takes people riding in their cars without a care in the world and shows them their insides for long minutes before they helplessly expire.
How people fail to respect reality is beyond me. I fear reality.…

For 3.5 years, I suffered and built systems to resist the harshness of my circumstances.
Finally, my efforts paid off. Via continuous improvement, meticulous record keeping, expansive reading, and endless self-experimentation, I drove my health above the “employable” threshold.
As they say, “Physician, heal thyself.” That is what I’ve done.
With the health bottleneck cleared, the other systems I’ve built are showing their mettle. Systems for info organization, meditation, and face reading have combined to produce outsized results.…

So apparently the magic phrase that instantly gets people to do tongues correctly is this:
“Can’t you just do it in your regular voice?”
Your regular voice is the one you use when talking to friends you’re comfortable with, ie not feeling awkward or stifled or nervous.
I don’t mean that God is just your buddy that you should feel totally comfortable around. But I do mean that you can speak to him in your regular voice without getting all dramatic about it.…

Before his fall, Adriano Leite Ribeiro was one of the top footballers in the world, making millions and playing for Inter Milan. He was brought down by a woman in 2009, and his career hasn’t recovered.
After his girlfriend Joana Machado broke up with him, Adriano spiraled into depression. He failed to show up in Italy to honor his Inter Milan contract, thus forfeiting his €400,000 monthly pay for the championship. Ouch.
What was Adriano’s mistake?…

This book contains two short stories, “Wardog’s Coin” and “Qalabi Dawn”. It’s well worth buying as an ebook. Spoilers ahead, so just buy it if you trust me.
As an amusing aside, I noticed two fellows from the Edenosphere were featured reviewers in the book’s front-matter. Apparently Neanderthals read books or something.
** Review of “Wardog’s Coin”
Overall, the story was great and stayed with me. The wargaming bones of the battle make it stick in memory with lucid clarity.…

In response to this:
Fuck hope. Hope is good in that it can allow you to be open to positivity and thus channel that positivity. But hope is also a fucker. Hope is a bunch of expectation that can leave you disappointed and future-focused rather than enjoying the present.
Persistence is the most important trait for anyone to have. To be persistent you need to be resilient. You can’t hit home runs every time you’re up to bat.

This fellow Muflax is quite genetically similar to me, although he has a handicap or two that I don’t, and I have one that he doesn’t. Here’s what he thinks about Edenism:
If you haven’t read fellow crazy-person Koanic Soul, I recommend you check him out because he might serve as a hint of what my writing would look like if I wouldn’t take great care to balance my ambiguity, enforce pragmatism and instead trusted my intuition.

Below is my reply to a Thal girl’s questions about how to implement the koans. I won’t post her original email.
I’m usually answering questions from dudes, so this gives me a chance to cover the other side – the traps someone with excess sensitivity falls into.
In her case she was trying too hard to be genuine and connect with people in a deep way, and then getting hurt. My reply:
Thanks for the kind words, I’m glad the koans have helped you.

Humility is the slow heartbeat pace of your tongues as you lay in bed, descending gradually into the void of unconsciousness. A prayer to the Ultimate as your finitude winks out.
Humility is the mortification of appetite. Eating a small amount when hungry, not animal gorging. Experiencing women as human beings, not merely outlets for release and dopamine spikes.
Humility is the ability to look into someone’s eyes without delusion or judgment, of self or other.…

If you aren’t aware of l’affaire McRapey, Vox Day has been beating on John Scalzi like he was the probability of Japanese invasion of California. This has attracted even the attention of the mighty Roissy, leading to an entry in the Urban Dictionary. In honor of which, I’ve composed a few lines:
McRapey bequeathed his own title
Now at its use he doth bridle
We can’t figure out what he’s upset about
For he’s king by his own little idol.

It’s a bit premature, but I appear to be turning the corner. Found some legit organic free range meat in Shenzhen, finally. I’ve got a cold in the vid, from malnutrition. Interesting that all this time and I’ve only now learned the lesson of defeating melon pride.

Here’s what I mean by forehead slope. Take Brock Lesnar as a very radical example:
Brock also displays some archaic giganticism, at least a little socket depth, and a mostly melon back of head. He’s socially comfortable and charismatic, pragmatic, personally guarded, plays a great villain, and prefers an introverted country lifestyle.
Here are some examples of vertical foreheads:
Here’s an intermediate 45 degree slope (with deep eye sockets and major occipital mass to boot):
The meaning of the slope
The more vertical the forehead, the greater the mass of the prefrontal cortext portion of the brain.…

Correction: That’s 4 post per day at the Neanderhall.
Notes on Moldbug:
Problem is unemployment of the economically useless
Solution A – Run country like a biz, hire and fire, automate and outsource. Kill the useless.
Pig philosophy, king but no computer.
“Universal unemployment is the definition of the Singularity.”
Solution B – Embrace unemployment. EBT card. Detroit. Destroys character.
Natural aristocrats rare.
Solution C – Oculus Rift, physical imprisonment with virtual enrichment.…

In the below video, Penn of Penn & Teller talks about his time on Celebrity Apprentice and how willpower is a muscle that weakens with continual use. When people are in front of cameras, they initially exercise high willpower to manage self image, but after a while this muscle is exhausted and they become completely undisciplined.
Interestingly, Penn’s response to this exhaustion is to become quiet and non-confrontational. From this we see that he’s an introvert, which is common for intelligent big-eye melons.…

I have decided to allow full visibility for typed groups. E.g., MT’s will be able to see the TT hall, but not post there. MM’s will be able to see the TM hall. Etc.
I am glad I did not initially allow this. It allowed the subforums to develop their unique characters independent of comment or criticism from potentially less understanding types.
However, there are also significant downsides to the arrangement. It is difficult for e.g.…
