Just wanted to pop back in two months on to let anyone who was concerned upon my departure know that I'm doing better. I'm not coming back here or anything, just wanted to say things seem to have worked out and the future seems relatively ok. Thanks to those here that have offered me help and kindne...

(((Everyone))) I'm sorry, I'm going. Heck, I've been gone for a month now. A few people here have been kind to me and it's meant a lot. But, despite that, I've grown to have significant negative feelings towards this place and numerous people in it and I don't want to be here anymore. I've attempted...

I haven't posted in a while and after this I can't imagine I will again. I don't know why I came here in the first place. Something about community and not feeling alone. Whatever it was it didn't happen. I felt as understood and accepted here as I did anywhere else, which is to say, not much. I cou...

[color=black]For every philosophy, there is an opposing philosophy. Both are equally valid. You speak some definitive, judgmental, know-better-than-thou crap sometimes, and now pure equivocation between all possible opposed ideas? Will you not claim any stance about reality to be victorious? In you...

mostly whether a person knows (or could be reasonably expected to know) they are incompetent at something ROFLMAO Tell me when you find a reliable way to avail people of their unknown unknowns and to reliably get them to reintegrate their belief systems around them. I haven't found a way yet, if I ...

^ sort of what I was driving at: if you can’t define competence as necessarily being a moral quality, then by the same token you can’t define incompetence as necessarily an immoral quality. The question itself is a categorical conflation. Thank you for ending this asinine discussion. Conflation was...

-1 I've done my best to stay away, managed for a week until I felt too isolated (will posting this help that?). Quit my job and school. Couldn't do it anymore, used up what I had left to give in the first week. Don't want to hear about how now I'm destined to be a garbage collector. Trying to keep t...

-3 Spent the last few hours mostly staring off into space trying to figure out anything that's worth doing. Read a couple things online. Went back to staring off into space. Thought of writing various posts; remembered that, unless it's to take issue with me, nobody seems to engage or care much abou...

1. Feeling rather lonely. Back at school and work but my heart isn't in it. I think my perspective and values have shifted and I've fallen out of love with my field of study. Don't feel like I fit in anywhere, including here. Especially at school/work. Wondering why communications with a new friend ...

I'm thinking about a pair of pieces of advice I often receive in regard to being better adjusted within social settings: "just be yourself" and something along the lines of "people don't connect with ABC, you should be more XYZ." They appear to be contradictory if being oneself e...

You already know my definition of useful. Nope, that's why I ask, so I can understand the extension of the concept as you use it here. Useful, in other words, in the sense that you can DO something with it. Ok, useful in the sense that it can be put to use. That's a pretty broad definition that inc...

All of which can be achieved by a tour through your local and private library, which doesn't cost any where near the exorbitant extortion that is college prices. While true to some extent, there are significant advantages to having specific materials selected for study and a competent instructor ve...

What is the value of studied knowledge if it isn't useful? Could you define "useful" in the way you use it here? Of course business can be trusted. If the point of an education is to prepare for the workplace, what better than the workplace to prepare? I've found that university education...
