i've decided to settle

The origins of the imperative, "know thyself", are lost in the sands of time, but the age-old examination of human consciousness continues here.

It entails looking for other people you can cooperate with in an effort to establish new folk.

That's not much of a plan, no wonder you aren't making progress.

That's quite a plan, in fact, one that is far better than looking for older women you can settle with.

Men don't necessarily have a reproductive expiration date, so if you keep fit you can reproduce until your 50 yrs. old but what of #2?

Any planned ways on helping to save the planet?

They are more likely to be autistic if you make them in your 40's. I mean children. Science says.

You can't have it all. You must choose. Make some sacrifices. Big picture or details.

Work and family take away that time and energy you could have spent on more important tasks.

Wouldn't it be advantageous to acquire all aspects of "the picture" before any choices are made?

What do you consider more important than family and friends?

Regard whatever it is from many perspectives in different time frames with the aid from others as well. Seeking wise counsel tends to help one manually focus on what the picture is all about down to its details. The more light, the better the visibility.

Let's put it this way. Some people are happy to reproduce within any kind of environment. Some are more demanding. You can be homeless and reproduce. Not a difficult thing to do. But that's shortsighted. You don't care about the future. You just reproduce and hope you will get lucky. Like an animal. Often, such organisms reproduce in great quantities. The greater the number of moves, the higher the chances one of them will work. It's a primitive strategy. Often promoted by PUA's who think that alphas do nothing but reproduce whereas women and betas take care of the children. Unintelligent people. Nomadic minds. As our intelligence increases, so our moves become more precise and fewer in number. So we have people who do not want to reproduce outside of healthy family unit, and at the top, we have people who do not want to reproduce outside of healthy social unit e.g. folk. If these conditions are not met, they will focus their energies, not on reproduction, but on restoring these conditions . . . or they simply go extinct because they don't want to go back to being an animal. Most of you are happy to be an animal.

MA,

I haven't seen stats on how our intelligence has increased in the last 10,000 years. I believe there are still missing links in evolutionary theory hence it's still regarded as theory.

So describe how our intelligence has increased (URL links to what you're referring to would help)?

What conditions must be met so all discriminating folks will reproduce?

Most of you are happy to be an animal.


What does "be an animal" mean?

Being an animal means being shortsighted. With no memory of the past and with no plans for the future. Living in the moment. It also means being an egoist: with no interest in social cooperation, no interest in public life, no interest in other people, no perception of them at all, no respect for their rank at all.

I never said our IQ has increased in last whatever number of years. I simply described what happens as our IQ increases.

If it hasn't increased then how can you describe the increase? Our understanding has increased, not our intelligence as it is ever measured. With all the chemical additives and genetic modification to our food sources combined with more sedentary lifestyles, brain capacities have likely declined. People don't even exercise their memories anymore, most do not remember the top ten phone numbers that they call.

Does this apply to spiritual matters as well?

I am simply describing different ways you can interact with the world and associating some of them with lower level of intelligence simply because they involve little to no thinking.

Would you agree that an organism that has no regard for consequences is unintelligent?

Such an organism may feel perfectly comfortable with its decisions but they nonetheless remain poor decisions in comparison to decisions of those organisms that feel perfectly comfortable to think before they act.

Higher intelligence displays restraint: selectivity regarding the manner in which one spends one's energy. It makes fewer but more precise, thus more effective, moves.

Lower intelligence displays no restraint. It makes as many random, thoughtless, moves as possible with the hope that at least some of them will do the job.

Intelligent people wait, restraining themselves from every kind of activity, basically resting, in order to accumulate enough strength so that they can then attempt to resolve the main problem.

Unintelligent people, on the other hand, are divided. They want to resolve the main problem but . . . they also want to live. Unwilling to make sacrifices, they end up siding with the superficial.

You can't have it both ways.

One of the main problems of the modern era is the fact that social roles have become too flexible. There is simply too much mobility and this is even encouraged. Everyone is free to be whatever they want to be. So, for example, a child of a peasant can nowadays become a lawyer, and this is even encouraged, since being a lawyer means more money and more popularity. Peasants are even shamed for being peasants and thus stimulated to compete for higher positions. The fact that such mobility makes people weaker, in terms of potentials they possess, is ignored. The focus is elsewhere . . . on money, on popularity, on pleasure, on peace. Noone aims for strength anymore.

This one is 26. 11 years younger than me. Her face has been cropped to protect the innocent. Anyone who says they'd rather have a 40 years old, all things being equal, is out of their minds.

You see...a pimp's love is very different from that of a square.
Dating a stripper is like eating a noisy bag of chips in church. Everyone looks at you in disgust, but deep down they want some too.

The picture says that there is no meaning to life and that death is both inevitable and final and that is all I really need to know

Acquiring knowledge and accepting death and being alone as much as possible is what works for me as I have no family or friends

I can be alone and content with my life and so can Trixie if she engaged in some positive thinking so please teach her how to meditate

I am 52 and so a 40 year old is younger than me but I would still choose her over a 26 year old any day

Since she will have more life experience and that is something more important than beauty at my age

Though I am both celibate and a loner and so have no need for a woman as I am content the way I am

Why is there no meaning? So if death is final for the human body, what of your eternal soul where your consciousness dwells?
