I just had an insight.
The main source of problems in everything and everywhere is the fact that people are born in different times
Because of that, they'll be made into live and accept things that they have not created by themselves and most importantly, do not understand the reason of their existance.
The only solution would be to completely erradicate all history, culture and knowledgeable people, so that mankind can start over.
Maybe an ancient civilization figured this in the past and mankind is a result of this theory being put in practice....

What do you think about immortality ? Is it something we should strive for, or should we be afraid of it ?
And if it is achieved regardless, what would it mean for philosophy ?
Alex Kirkeegaard had a really interesting refutation for this type of stuff. Computers so far have ran on binary type of thinking. Computer thinking a series of variables given numeric values and a some Boolean
The human brain does not work like this. Wittgenstein showed us thinking is abstract and not boolian (as the postivists tried to assert).
So the idea of a computer emulating a human brain is not going to happen as long as we are still using languages derived from binary.
Immortality isn't possible, but we should strive to double or triple our lifespan. As a start.
Overpopulation is not a problem, as it's already happening now anyway, and as it's unlikely to be available for poor people and rich people don't reproduce. The real problem is social, it is to determine who gets to live. And the fact that this becomes a problem is a good thing, because it will force a positive evolution of society.
Philosophers will talk and no one will care as usual.

Everyone criticises the main Abrahamic religions (Christianity, Judaism and Islam) for their contradictions, violence, and promotion of "fearing" or "submitting" to God.
But there's not much criticism of the "Eastern" religions in the mainstream.
So what criticisms can you think of for Buddhism, Hinduism, Sikhism etc?
How comes Christianity and Islam were so successful and replaced pagan religions whereever they met them?
What caused it to collapse? Can't find any reliable sources

If evil Demiurge created the world, shouldn't man strive to do evil too?
Truly intellectual people - what do they do, how do they live their life? Do they kill themselves? Pursue intellectual interests or try to live the trivial life and just aspire plain happiness? Enter relationships? Become alcoholics?
I guess what I'm asking is not "what is the meaning of life", but "how should one pursue life"?
Philosophy in practice.
truly intellectual people such as myself spend all day doing nothing but enjoying the finest media, reading the greatest literature and philosophy and of course sacrificing at least six hours everyday sharing my immense intellect and wisdom with the ordinary people
Stalin was a rat and didnt look like this.
Between the ego inflated fucks, idiots who believe they're hotstuff and actual intellectuals that won't bother answering directly I can only predict this thread will go to shit.
Never ever mention intelligence on 4chan. It's assuming so many things, you can be sure it'll only trigger shitstorms.
On a scale of Ceasarian to Democrat, what do you think was Nietzsche's preferred form of government?
Is there a philosophy that holds that: Because Humans are basically meat robots designed through evolution to self replicate that the very idea that they could ever hope to understand core universal concepts like truth, reality and existence is flawed?
Is there a philosophy that concedes that the very idea of human comprehension of inhuman truths is basically laughable?
What would Martin Luther think?
