    Is there a way to get rid of cultures but still maintain an alternative for a social glue?

    So long as there is group cohesion, there is culture. There's no getting around this. You can be blind to your own culture (I know I am), you can reject culturally accepted ideas/values/practices within the culture you reside, but it's not a matter of whether there is culture or not. It's a...

    How do you deal with failure?

    Take a step back and review what is actually important to you. Setting your standard at cum laude seems monumentally entitled. Shit happens, life gets in the way. Recognition is a luxury afforded to be people who are both lucky and capable. Also, does this actually affect your prospects? Why...

    Judging people and figuring their behaviour

    Drives World-view Self-concept and self-awareness Interests In that order. May update later.

    "We are undeserving of this planet"

    I see it as dependent on whether the consequences of our actions are gradually received or not. There is a version of humanity that can do this, and we need the right feedback to allow us to adapt toward that. But if we reap too much too quickly, we are going to regress in capacity to the point...

    Humour on self, self-loathing and humility

    Our brains don't know shit. Our hardware is trash compared to the level of complexity we expect brains to understand. Language is evolutionarily brand new for us, let alone complex concepts. We are not built for logic, it's a bug not a feature. It's completely incidental to our survival and...

    not sure where to go in life at this point

    Wellbeing is measured all the time? It's just a fluffy self-report variable, although you can make the assessment from behaviour too. I think you're wildly exaggerating how many people dislike school. I've read 30-75% dislike it, but never 99%. I was depressed at school, but I also preferred it...

    Humour on self, self-loathing and humility

    @ZenRaiden Due to how neurons work, even if you're only saying something without believing it, this makes those thoughts more available for later. Like water creating a groove in the earth that makes it more likely to flow this way next time it rains. So yes I am saying that, but that's not a...

    Humour on self, self-loathing and humility

    Humility is garbage and false humility many times more so. Fuck it off. Self-awareness is king. Know your weaknesses and maybe even shore them up but leverage your strengths. Regardless, self-humour is IMO more often a sign of poor self-esteem or insecurity. There are three "families" of this...

    how dna can move on their own

    Jeez it's difficult to parse what any of you are saying. Is this the sort of thing you're after or no?

    Edit: dammit by the time I found my cringe folder you put it on Churchill.

    not sure where to go in life at this point

    If you're disengaged, your wellbeing is low. It may not be depression, but I'd argue it doesn't matter what you think it is, it's still worth investigating. I experienced both depression and anxiety in school, although at the time I only recognised the depression. One of the reasons these two...

    Sense of humour is important

    I'm denying it. I think the burden is on you to delineate "good" humour from "humour I prefer". If you venn diagrammed the overlap of humour between people in this thread, I think the amount of content that was held as funny by every single member would be <1%. If humour had constituted mostly...

    Sense of humour is important

    Yes, but neither of these things are sufficient to conclude a binary categorisation of average or profound. You talk about "deeming" but this is a subjective measure. I deem all of the mentioned comedians/authors as garbage because I genuinely don't find any of them funny. I can appreciate they...

    Sense of humour is important

    Whenever you describe reality, be critical of any explanation that explicitly or incidentally invokes a hierarchy without evidence or explanation, especially if you would be at the top of it. The ego is appeased when its praises are sung at the temple within. This can be achieved through...

    Sense of humour is important

    I don't really agree with anything you've said. I find it odd to ascribe aptitude to humour types blindly, or to categorise humour as average or profound. I think it's both too simple and probably not correct. My take is that humour is a measure of the group, and not the individual. The funny...
