Have any of you on here read the original Welcome To The NHK novel by Tatsuhiko Takimoto?

2 Name: Bookworm : 2021-02-11 09:03 ID:G4u8tBHt

Yes, I read the novel. It's very good. I tried watching the anime and reading the manga, but it felt like a chore since I don't usually watch anime or read manga.
To anyone who hasn't read it: read it, it's short, good, and quite relatable.

It is also more realistic and relatable.

I read it after I stopped being a hikikomori, and I was, for some reason, surprised by the realism of the book: the drinking, taking drugs, sleeping more than twelve hours a day. I used to be a chain smoker, literally lighting the next cigarette with the previous one. Since getting out of bed was only really necessary to go to the toilet or get more food I would try to build a large tower of cigarette butts in my ashtray, trying to keep it stable like a house of cards.
The book is more relevant than ever.

haha I'm in the hikikomori boat for a very long time, I've successfully pushed everyone that I cared about or felt they cared about me in manipulative ways; anybody I did that to won't ever want to contact me again. I've made "friends" with some manipulative people and I'm egging them on to ruin my entire existence as I pretend to be ignorant about everything that they're doing to my life and everything that's going on around me.
I enjoy destroying myself in ways that others would find repulsive.

don't care if this is off-t0pic; my existance is going to be over soon-ish anyways.haha

the only reason i exist is to suffer reality is a joke all of humanity is slowly fading away into nonexistence. there is beauty in extinction.

im been in a manipulative situation my entire existence all I know about relationships is based off of manipulation;I want to hurt myself in ways that fuck myself over entirely such as running our of money and being forced into the streets or making those I live distrust me, death by a thousand cuts in order to make them despise my existence to the point of my existence being completely unbearable to them. i want to feel despair i can't help but to manipulate others in order to get what I want at this point and all what I want is to do harm to myself and manipulate others into manipulating me to do so. i always get what, its easy when what i do to myself is what normal people avoid by instinct i deserve i always got what i deserved.

nobody I know will read this post so i dont care.
i ruined myself financially by wasting money on things that I hate and hurt myself with those things; i intentionally looked at things I wanted and then bought something I didn't want at 2x retail price.
I should be brain-dead with the amount of drugs ive overdosed on, it didn't matter what drug I took, tylenol, antidepressants, opioids, psychedelics, it did not matter as long as it was in my posession, i stopped doing this but I would hoard prescriptions and take around 5x my perscribed dose for a couple of days before stopping suddenly and doing it again.
my family have all emotionally abused me since I can remember, scaring me with suicide and divorce at times, they got less direct with their manipulation as time went on.
I don't deserve friends. I deserve manipulation.
I deserve to be hurt, I want to be hurt.
I don't need people.

do you maybe want to talk somewhere?

You seem like a directionless sick fuck. I hope you stay away from me or try to do something constructive.

Try believing in God or Science maybe. What will save humanity from loss of information and the decay of our world? Perhaps God or science will. The Earth will decay and so will the Sun. Every star dies and black holes evaporate; the universe might end up being nothingness. Nothingness from everything being the same temperature, when the energy sources (stars, black holes, etc.) have all been rendered useless.

How could science be our salvation at or leading up to that point? Time travel, inter-dimensional travel, intergalactic travel, interstellar travel, use of worm holes, traveling to parallel universes, Jupiter brains, quantum computing, nuclear power, etc. could all help.

How could God save us from a doomed existence? God is a powerful being, beyond the constraints and limitations of physical reality. More powerful that those powerful things which die eventually (after millions or maybe billions of years). God is the ultimate subject, and, as I think Hegel pointed out, the ultimate substance.

How could one put faith in atoms when even they might decay into useless but more simple and stable particles? As sturdy as the physical reality surrounding us seems it might be flimsy in the grand scheme of things. But maybe atoms don't decay and the universe is eternal, somehow never running out of energy sources. In that case I would respect materialism even more. Maybe God is eternal, all knowing, and all powerful. There is comfort in thinking that there is an all-knowing eternal being, for in that case no information (past, present, future, legal, or illegal) is ever lost. Each human's consciousness, memories, and experiences can be thought of as individuals units of information, for example.

It is disingenuous at best and a lie at worst to presume the absolute nature of reality or the truth of the future (especially when the future in question is highly speculative). If I remember correctly Kant said to not lie, for if you lie you take responsibility for reality.

adj. Liable to be required to give account, as of one's actions or of the discharge of a duty or trust.
adj. Required to render account; answerable

Reality itself is the best representation of itself. Any person's intentionally false account of reality could be laid asunder if that person missed a relevant facet or tendril of the part of reality in question. If you tell the truth then the power of reality itself supports you. If you tell a lie then the only thing supporting you is your own wit. Lying means that it is you, rather than reality, telling a supposed truth about reality. You then have to maintain the integrity of the false account of reality. If your account of reality becomes not logically sound then it could fall apart. If you want a lie to work then you should only tell variants of a lie when absolutely necessary. Or better yet, craft the lie so you don't have to tell variants of it. If you tell variants of a lie, consider if the people whom you told will ever communicate with each other.

The opposite of truth is falsehood: when it is held for truth, it is called error

God doesn't exist.
