I read this and it wasn't that bad. I kinda like it. pretty entertaining.
that's really good to know
thanks for sharing matey
here's a picture of a cute bunny for ya
Do you guys enjoy Charles Bukowski? I really like how he's kind of a scumbag and hopeless, but at the same time kind of friendly and comfortable
Characters that change, that grow in personality, who learn things... Is this a worthwhile premise for a sci-fi novel?
If done right but its sci-fi so you're already wrong. Sci-fi is more about world building, spooky plot, or 2deep4u messages, not character development.
Don't rely on other peoples opinions for your novel, work on your novel and submit it for publishing. If you like it, do it.
Just finished this.
Should never read another book ever again? Nothing will top this.
So, I'm not sure exactly were to go with this so here i am.
Can anyone tell me the possible significance of "There are more things in heaven and earth, Horatio,
Than are dreamt of in your philosophy."
Along with a red rose? Color of the rose is important, but not terribly so.
Quote is from Hamlet
>Pic wildly unrelated, but i giggle at it.
>"There are more things in heaven and earth, Horatio,Than are dreamt of in your philosophy."
It means that full scale and depth of the real world can never ever be truly conveyed in ideas/philosophy. Those things are just theory that spring from our own limited perspective of things.
I don't mean Steven King normie tier shit, I'm looking for the H.P. Lovecraft type shit, horror with actual thought applied, like Clive Barker shit. House of Leaves type shit.
post it nigga
I disagree, I find horror these days to be something of an art form. To really truly scare someone, especially by today's standards is incredibly difficult, but it can absolutely be done with the right skill and originality.
>the world is divided into two groups of people
>those who have read 'Milly-Molly-Mandy Stories' and
>those who are yet to read 'Milly-Molly-Mandy Stories'
What did Brett Easton Ellis mean by this?
Is it a gay thing?
I'm not a homophobe just genuinely confused.
The first time i ever jerked off was to the cover of Milly Molly Mandy
It was the one where she was up in a tree.
I used to imagine that the tree was my cock and that she was trying to climb to the top of it, but the more she climbed the bigger my cock got.
Thanks a milly Lancaster
Has the self died? How would we even know if the concept of the self has died in a society? Are we going to look back on our life and wonder why we spent so much time on screens? Is it troubling that we connect to other people way easier and more frequently alone and online than in real life? How important is the physical human nowadays?
Self comes from will, you ultimately decide whether, when, and what to watch "on the screen", which is a pure reflection of your will.
If you read up on many philosophers, or look at successful businessmen of the past, you occasionally find people cut off to the point that they essentially spend all of their time with books and letters... Screens aren't different.
Don't worry anon, it'll turn around once the safe space cry baby SJW stuff goes away, and people trade their selfish...

I've just finished with chapter 5 of Godel, Escher, Bach and I'm really diggin it so far but I feel like I'm not getting everything I should out of it.
I'm grasping the concepts finely enough but some of the examples elude me a bit and I feel as if I'm skipping ahead a bit because I'm too excited to see where he goes next. I also feel like maybe these chapters are supposed to be a bit barebones to frame later topics? Should I just make sure I gasp the central idea of every chapter and move on for now? Also are there any accompanying works,...

What did he mean by this, /lit/?
Determinism is the philosophical belief that all events transpire in virtue of some necessity and are therefore inevitable. Notably, the idea that the past choices of certain rational agents could have been performed differently - or even the idea that the future decisions of such agents could turn out to be other than what they will - is usually challenged under this view. Thus, the "problem" of free will - or the idea of free will as being an "illusion" - often arises as a result of the main claim made by determinism, that is, that the past, present, and future is identified with an essentially unbreakable chain of circumstances of which no single link in such a chain could possibly be avoided. Some determinists deny the idea of "possibility" or "randomness" altogether, even asserting that such ideas are only a creation of the mind or merely the result of imagination. However, addressing free will is its own concern, and any discussion of determinism does not in principle require any discussion of free will. In addition to these issues, the length to which language can actually capture what is exactly at stake, or what the true nature of reality really is in spite of the concept of determinism, is disputed.
holy FUCK this book was good
are the 4th and the 5th as good or are they shit
Is it possible that videogame literature, if it got less autistic, could become a staple of literature in the coming years?
Not so much fanfiction, but more so stuff that is just generally based off the events and canon or even mechanics of games?
Post interesting books you want to read or have read
I want this book !
