  1. The Zen way is the direct way that will absolve all negative beliefs in an instant. Not likely someone will hold that state of being for very long until the mind comes in and "thinks" it needs to step out of paradise. (For the love of the holy radiant sun someone prove my probabilities irrelevant on this point). Instead, one might find it easier to assume that if you feel any anxiety in a situation you are NOT being yourself, once aware of this you can ask yourself "What do I have to believe is true about myself for me to feel this way?" Then you find what that belief is and drop it.
  2. The phrase is cliche, the realization is not. It is absolutely worth saying this as many times as you can until it dawns upon someone. The fact that you are yourself means that if someone is not attracted to your particular state of being, then you do not have to concern yourself with whether or not that individual likes you or not because why would you want to force yourself to be someone you are not? All you need to do is... be yourself. How liberating!! How wonderful! All work is done, all problems are solved! Drift aimlessly like a boat downstream and the moon is sure to follow.
  3. Fate is the path you laid out for yourself. Free will is in what way you travel down that path.
  4. That is a belief. You are free to do what you like at anytime regardless of the circumstances. But, if fear of something holds you back, you are absolutely right and you will have to wait until life extension in order to experience that change of behavior.
  5. But, is one still fearing death? If they are, the relationship is exactly the same except for the arbitrary amounts of time we spend distracting ourselves from that fact.
  6. It is already distant to you. What is 1000 years? If we extend life to a thousand then our children will be worrying that they will never live to 10,000. Why do we place death in the future? If we are too afraid to die now, then we are too afraid to live now. So we are already half-alive and half-dead. You do not have to believe in anything to get this point now, unless you postpone it to some unthinkable time in the future.
  7. Transhumanizing ourselves is a legitimate path. But, it isn't saying much since I believe all paths are legitimate. Now if you ask how it would change our thinking to extend our life with our current thinking. It would not at all change our thinking. It would not change our identities either. What changes thinking is going into the question of death and what it means to die and the nature of thought itself. We believe we are living now but, we as a collective are full of thoughts that are conditioned and fragmented parts of the whole that we project into the future as some kind of salvation. So we are constantly living in fear. Fear of death being one of the greatest fears (but, maybe not as great as the fear of speaking). So ok, you live in fear, you live in anxiety, you live in anger, greed, envy, all that and you now extend your life to 1000 years. What do you think is going to happen? Indulge in this revelations quote for fun: "And in those days shall men seek death, and shall not find it; and shall desire to die, and death shall flee from them." Death is there for a reason. You either look into it now, or you run from it until you actually have to make the jump. Everything changes, everything flows out and in. So even if you do decide to upload your peripheral consciousness into a virtual reality, at some point the entity reading these words will eventually have to die. And when that day comes, who is going to save you?
  8. At the end of the Thor movie Asgard became a civilization that only resides in space. I'm reminded of https://asgardia.space/en/ Asgardia being a breakaway nation of Earth that only resides as a cluster of satellites. Here is the foreword to Asgardia: "In ancient Norse mythology, Asgard was a city in the skies, the country of the Gods. It is the realisation of man's eternal dream to leave his cradle on Earth and expand into the Universe. Asgardia is a fully-fledged and independent nation, and a future member of the United Nations - with all the attributes this status entails: a government and embassies, a flag, a national anthem and insignia, and so on. The essence of Asgardia is Peace in Space, and the prevention of Earth’s conflicts being transferred into space. Asgardia is also unique from a philosophical aspect – to serve entire humanity and each and everyone, regardless of his or her personal welfare and the prosperity of the country where they happened to be born. Asgardia's philosophical envelope is to ‘digitalise’ the Noosphere, creating a mirror of humanity in space but without Earthly division into states, religions and nations. In Asgardia we are all just Earthlings!"
  9. Mostly human created through channeled information, some ET. Each legitimate crop circle has a message attached to it. It's a communication between other consciousness and Earth.
  10. You're going to have to make a forum topic for every member on this board. They're going to feel left out.
  11. Where did I go?
  12. Yep, Wallace was Leto. I liked the character he played. Also, I appreciated Ryan Gosling's acting as well.
  13. I just watched Blade Runner 2049 (©2017 ALCON ENTERTAINMENT, LLC., WARNER BROS. ENTERTAINMENT INC. AND COLUMBIA TRISTAR MARKETING GROUP, INC. ALL RIGHTS RESERVED, ORIGINAL CONTENT DO NOT STEAL) I enjoyed the scene where Wallace is talking to the freshly made replicant and then kills her as the camera pans to Luv and your mind gets blown (unless you're sharper than me) as he was ostensibly talking to her through the entire scene. Also, I was excited about the gigantic girl hologram that was interacting with K, but for completely different reasons. This was a great movie, I had one slight shift into my schizophrenic perspective during the scene with the furnace as is normal with philosophical or dystopian films, but it wasn't Cloud Atlas intense. I felt chills a few times and my eyes got watery at one point. (This isn't saying much because my eyes get watery while watching any big budget movie especially something heartwarming like a Disney film. Also this isn't a joke, I legitimately feel these feels as though I'm feeling the entire human condition) This is my review.
  14. Nothing at all negative about depression. It simply means you are looking for the answers within instead of externally, and asking us for answers as a reflection of your own inner knowing. Any state of being you choose to experience will never be extraneous. You can always get something out of it.
  15. Then you will buy into a negative belief. Not to say that all these individuals are doing what excites them the most in life, but everyone at all times will move towards what they perceive to be the most pleasurable and move away from what they perceive to be the most painful. In this sense, they know exactly what they are doing. In another sense, they have no idea what they are doing. So if one holds on to a negative belief where they are suffering, it's because they must think they are getting something out of it.
