Either way, you've clearly demonstrated that you're not interested in discussion.
Not with you. I came to see if there was anyone but faggots on this board. There aren't.

How can something that is strictly matter identify certain pieces of matter as "itself" and recognize other clusters of matter as conceptual units. You ignore how absurd this is.
Because it's built that way. You're just to stupid to understand.

According to your own definition of what we are, you clearly don't have better things to do.
I can see your confused. Most people don't seem able to comprehend a world without magical thinking.

So you're not an anarchist (according to another thread), and you don't want to convince us of anything. So what exactly are your aims in coming here and posting?
Forum-hopping to find non-lame people.

If we're nothing more than rocks, shouldn't the word "myself," or "you,"
I don't know about you, but I'm a recursive pattern machine. These self-referential patterns in patterns is what I am. That's exactly what I experience. That's what consciousness and will are, emotions are physical stimulai - mechanical changes.

I really do pity you.
Haha, you libertards are so much like Christians.

Is there a reason you're posting here, besides trolling?
As Schiller wrote,
I sing as the bird sings
That on the bough alights;
The song that from me springs
Is pay that well requites
Quote
Your bare assertion remains unconvincing.
Thankfully, convincing you (or anyone) forms no great part of my aims on this planet. If you're actually interest, I recommend reading Max Stirner's The Ego and Its Own, L.A. Rollins' The Myth of Natural Rights and Richard Joyce's The Myth of Morality. James L. Walker's The Philosophy of Egoism and John Beverly Robinson's Egoism are also decent short works on the subject. All of those except for Rollins and Joyce can be 'legally' found online, and the other two can be as well, if you're clever.

Nihilism is a philosophy that deals with morality, ethics, etc
Nihilism - existential nihilism, that is - deals with the nature of value. In this sense it remains on the subject of teleology, but as it denies extrensic value, 'rational' values or normatives generally it does not - as you accuse - describe or entail a 'way to live', it explicitly denies the existence of any such 'way'.
Quote
I was making the claim that a society could not function under nihilists principles.
Nihilist. Principles. Seriously? As I explained above, Nihilism is a statement about teleological theory, not a prescriptive or proscriptive set of norms. Quite obviously, society does function in a world in which nihilism is true. Beyond that you have conveniently defined 'function' to suit your own purposes, you have made an implicit value judgment on what is 'functioning' and 'non-functioning'. "This does not suit my ideas, therefor there must be something wrong with it." Maybe there's something wrong with your ideas.

I never claimed you have a duty to do anything, besides not getting in my way.

There isn't. If it happens, it will happen without me. And if it doesn't (which is my guess for the near future), I won't make any difference. Sorting out my own affairs and managing my responses to their stupidity is far more productive and interesting for me.

That being said, please feel free to continue moping, or whatever it is you think you're doing.
The word you're looking for is mocking.

How do you define what is enough to "matter"?
What matters to me.
Quote
Your life doesn't exist in a bubble. You don't have the ability to know where your orbit ends.
I do have the ability to know that my energy is better focused elsewhere. Like sleeping. I don't know how sharp you are with numbers, but billions of idiot herd animals win; no matter how ridiculous their religious fantasies are.
Quote
Ultimately, your argument boils down to "If it's broken, don't bother trying to fix it." Brilliant.

My argument boils down to, "I have better things to do." Not all of us are crusading fuckers obsessed with righting "wrongs" and rebuilding the world. Regurgitating this same jackoff notion that spawns that 'every vote counts' and 'we all have a duty'. Please. Stop trying to rationalize your debate-team antics as somehow important.

Responses like this are why I generally have trouble taking nihilism seriously.
That's your problem.
Quote
I have a hard time believing that you wouldn't give a shit if the person I killed was a friend or relation of yours.
You didn't specify that, obviously. And most of the people on this planet I couldn't give a fuck about.
Anyways, there's no 'rules' on this. Maybe I'd shoot you in the face. Whatever I wanted - I don't care about rationalizing it or some ridiculous hand-waving bullshit about justice.
Quote
Nihilism is a fun philosophical idea
Nihilism is also true, whether or not you like it.

but an impractical (if not impossible) way to live.
This doesn't make any fucking sense. It's not even a 'way to live'. You clearly have no idea what you are talking about.

Many things are outside our control, but we do exert a tangible influence on the world around us.
Not enough to matter. I don't care what happens to the world outside of my orbit, and I have better ways to waste my time than trying to convince stupid douchbags of shit they are congenitally incapable of comprehending.
Quote
you still clearly prefer to do as you wish, versus being forced to do what others wish. If this is the case, then it must warrant some action for its preservation, whether on an individual or collective basis.
Meaningless. I do what I can within the limits of my power to serve myself. This does not involve squandering energy on stupid bullshit like political discussions or bitching about the Federal Reserve.
If I bitch about something it's because I feel like it. Not because I'm stupid enough to imagine it makes any other difference.

Buzzword is the greatest buzzword. I'm not sure how anything could be a "non-concept", unless I doublethink about it.
"God" is a perfect example of a non-concept. Or "evil". It is something which is literally nonsensical, has no cognitive content or is used in eternally shifting, unrelated and unspecified ways. "Country" is an example of a non-concept.

If I hypothetically choose to kill a stranger walking down the sidewalk tomorrow, what do you believe should happen to me, in terms of reparations, punishment, etc.? I've done nothing wrong.
I don't give a shit.

Your own.
Markets allow a rational allocation of resources according to scarcity. Governments aren't any good at providing services, they more or less function like protection rackets. But this is so vastly outside my control it's rather irrelevant. I like the theory behind economics and law, but I couldn't give a damn about your silly movements. Activism is lame.

Given what human nature is, do you doubt that anarchy is superior to statism?
According to what rubric?
14  General Category / General Discussion / Re: Good Day/Night/Esoteric Limbo on: October 16, 2010, 02:36:50 AM
I would agree that these concepts are social constructs, but given that we live within a social environment, the ideas of authority and liberty become highly relevant.
I think they're non-concept, buzzwords and ideological totems; confused pseudoideas to mistakenly explain real-world phenomena.
Quote
If you don't believe in the use of these concepts, even within a social environment, then on what basis do you choose to either respect or reject another individual's wants or needs?
I don't 'respect' anything. I do as seems best suited for my own advancement as I see it. I do not trouble myself with 'rights' or 'duties'.

that has ever since provided the capitalist system and its true believers with a handy rationalization for selfishness and greed.
Greed and egoism are inescapable facts of life. Trying to 'rationalize' it is like trying to rationalize gravity; it's a fact that doesn't require a 'reason'; it just is.
Anyone who really was willingly a selfish and greedy individual needs no 'rationalization' or 'excuse'. So, even if we went with your fanciful tale, it would instead prove that altruists and idealism are trying to find a way to account for the boon of markets and property.

You fail. But one can hardly expect sense from the left, with their religion of Humanity and Equality. They are ever blind to the individual, bodily man and his uniqueness.
