Why is everything so boring?

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

If you think boredom to be bad, wait until you get seriously ill and they have to cut you up to poke at your insides. You lie there like a slob of meat, curled up, white lights before you eyes and morphine in your veins, floating on a little cloud thats on fire. I had a very bad accident when I was around 17 and I almost died, now I look at all petty pain and discomfort with a kind of a disdain and contempt.
Kvasirs Mexican gay lover(writing about a need of committing a genocide on 99 percent whites and all non-whites as a Mexican mestizo himself):
And if they are not good, what could be wrong with the genocidal fantasy in my ‘Dies Irae’, published in Day of Wrath, with a vindictive Star Child calling home 500 million Caucasoids (and of course, all non-whites, including Jews) to, ironically, make sure that Dave Lane’s words be fulfilled with the remaining Aryans?.
My step-dads schizophrenic diagnosis:
I see a disease taking over....I will not stay silent. I will do what I can, when I can.
If we do not stand then we shall fall....and the enemy will win.

Remember: the world will end, all there is that is left is to fly between Canada and Greece and have barbecues and drink vodka before you wake up at 40 and remember to have a son who will be 30 when you are 70 and whos children will be 20 when you are 90. paGAYn as fuck.

I don’t think that we invent the fear, but that it creeps up on us to fill the void that boredom has opened up within our minds.

Our current global situation is helping intensify the process, to levels that have not been experienced before.

I just put fear within wider brackets, implying that in this nihilistic world devoid of what's left of real feeling, experiencing something, even fear it's self then experiencing nothing.

Too much of the pleasure principle has been reduced to the reality principle. The measure of things has been skewed toward too much reality, if that makes much sense.

In Felix’s Wholeness thread I state “..a bit of derealisation now and again can break up the monotony of existence every-so-often.. a neural pause button, if you will. It takes One inward, to experience unique thoughts and feelings that One wouldn’t otherwise be inclined to entertain. A balance was struck, between a private inner world and an outward facing sociality.

..detachment from a reality that is difficult to cope with, is useful.. especially if there are a few things that One is simultaneously having to cope with/adjust to. This makes sense.. ensuring that stress, and cortisol, are minimised”.
