Shop Services

The main part of this update.

  • I added Analyzer and Altar fixtures to the appropriate shops that you have to pay for.

    Bases v1

    After some long thought, I'm altering the way these work again to simplify things and make base building more rewarding. This is probably my next project since I'm getting pretty burned out on towns.

  • Initial building doesn't change at all -- creating the first room of a base

    Your life isn’t just your own.


    It is though. You're ultimately the only person who has to deal with yourself.

    Rethinking things Notes

    Scrapping planes has altered quite a lot -- I'm rethinking my approach with what I want the alpha to be like and what I'd actually be doing when heading towards beta:

  • Having a Surface menu is becoming increasingly essential.

  • I'd like to have bombs work o

    I play. Haven't in a while. Last time I played I was just barely beaten by my 15yo sister's 15yo boyfriend.

    (by seeing it as a series of sensations rather than anything that means anything)


    Purpose/nonpurpose isn't the dichotomy I'm targeting. My philosophy is the complete opposite of nihilistic -- you can create interesting rituals but you can't create meaning on your own.

    My point is that in o

    I can't fix global problems.


    You could if you really wanted to. You don't though. I don't either.

    Embrace Nihilism basically.


    That's not what I said. At all.

    Okay so how do I just talk and human without it being constructs?


    Here's what I've been able to come up with:

  • Practice mindfulness in the buddhist sense of the word -- always have it kind of in the back of your mind about how illusory subjective reality it is and also how easy it is to rob

    Why do you disagree though?


    Because individuals can legitimately fix global problems. Usually by creating additional global problems.

    I think you're putting too much emphasis on the patterns and constructs and not on the simple truth that life and death for senior citizens is scary, helpless, and awful


    Those are also constructs.

    I think that's about as close as we'll come to agreeing on this topic though.

    doesn't mean that doom won't be comparable to rape


    It doesn't mean it will be either -- people can and do die peacefully sometimes. Also there's plenty of suffering that happens throughout life that I guess you could compare to rape. Although "rape" isn't really the right word because

    I guess everybody who isn't killing themselves is getting "raped" by a random and terrifying death that is inevitable.


    It's not necessarily terrifying and isn't necessarily random either. Again, my point here is that that terror is based on what appears to be an absolute unchangeable reality

    You're focused in and locked in on the concept of rape and so while you're capable of seeing rapists immediately you're missing the rest of your environment, including what the rapists themselves want at the moment (which isn't necessarily raping you). Meanwhile you're continuously thinking to yours

    In your rape analogy, it's sort of like if there were rapists present but your persepctive of rape was making you see them as exclusively hellbent on raping you, and you also weren't seeing the other people around them who weren't rapists.

    That dying in a hospital with a tube in your lungs at 82 is fucking miserable and not consensual. But eventually a fate like that awaits all of the people who don't kill themselves. There is no escaping the lack of consent your end will have if you don't take it into your own hands.


    That so

    Suicide is, however, ultimately driven by fear -- it's not the "easy way out" necessarily but it does seem to be based on finding a way to permanently avoid situations that are terrifying in one way or another (being weak at 82 for example). Or alternately situations that are fucked up beyond all re

    2. Not capable of fixing the global problem.


    Disagree there, but definitely agree on the "complete waste of mental energy" front. Not worth the effort, especially since taking up that mantle seems to give you responsibility over the movement, which is a logistical/diplomatic headache t

    Both class reductionism and race reductionism are harmful and divisive
    Politics & Religion


    people won't stop creating negative stereotypes, they won't stop noticing the differences between them and belief that there is something fundamentally different or they're going to form different associations based on their personal experiences and visual differences and they will act on it.
