Unless you're studying something technical you don't really "learn" anything substantive in college. You do learn how to put up with nonsense, work within deadlines, etc.Continuing on: once I have amassed enough UNDERSTANDING of whatever the normal person would have learned in FOUR YEARS at a regular college, in what I assume to be hopefully half the time, I will apply for jobs, and well you can see where that's headed.
I think it's mainly me not knowing what the goal is, I don't think I understand what the difference is to just lying down resting etc... Maybe my mind is usually relaxed? LolMeh, phoniness makes me contemplate suicide.
What is that hinders you from being able to do so? Is it your wandering mind (fuck, im starting to sound like one of those phonies)? Or what? I'll take some details and go from there
I cannot stop the voice inside my head. I can however read over words at insane rates, taking them in without subvocalisation. Please realise that, while you'll remember seeing these words before, your understanding will be pathetic. I have trouble trying to read maths / physics / chem too fast for me to keep up. For studying, slow and comprehensively reading a text once or twice does me much better than subvocalisation. However, once you've built up understanding regarding a subject, it's a very neat tool.Thoughts of worthy ideas that I have yet to see genuine threads on:
I believe this is what people are attempting to achieve when they meditate: the loss of the inner voice, the one that thinks, to let go, its really eliminating subvocalization (temporarily).
Bear in mind I haven't read everything you have posted; but I have to echo Absurdity here.Welcome to the forum.

More than anything though, a degree is a license to compete in the job market. I think you have a bit of a romanticized idea of how easy it will be to get a "job" with your DIY project (assuming by job you mean something sustainable in the long-term that can also be thought of as part of a career).
You can be a autodidact in college. I sure am. You could also learn a trade or some sort of technical skill that doesn't take 4 years and a waste of money. However hanging out at a library isn't something to put on a resume.
Not saying it isn't possible, but you're misunderstanding the point of university.I think you have a bit of a romanticized idea of how easy it will be to get a "job" with your DIY project (assuming by job you mean something sustainable in the long-term that can also be thought of as part of a career).
