I don’t think I’ll ever understand

by Zetsumei

I’ve come to the realization that I will never understand people or connect with them. Yet, I can’t escape biology and instinct…

So, I will save myself the headache and quit this game early. Despite what others may think, this is a logical decision to me. I’ve tempted fate and tested instinct. I don’t have that instinct to survive. If I was on a deserted island with easy to get food and water, I bet I would still starve to death…

Are you going today, Zet?

Zetsumei 5/18/2016 - 6:05 pm

Hope so. I’m tired of this life I find so meaningless.

What did you mean when you said: “…I can’t escape biology and instinct…”
What instinct?

Every living creature has an innate instinct to survive and reproduce. It’s not something we learn, we are born with it.

Take for example a suffocating person… Even if that person wants to die, their mind will send a signal to the body that will instinctively try to save itself.

Now I’m really confused. In one paragraph, you said that you can’t escape instinct. In the second, you said you have no survival instinct.

whiskered-fish, he is saying, that as a predator he was born with the instinct to survive but he has a brain that say’s what the fuck do i want to survive for? thus has lost his will to live. Am I close Zetsumei ?

I take offense the term, “predator” but yeah, you’re spot on, Rocky.

Kat, instinct doesn’t just mean survival. A desire to reproduce or to pass on your knowledge is also instinct. It just so happens my mind overpowers and crushes instinct…

Zetsumei, True i don’t understand people either, that was a problem for me a while ago, but i came to the realization other than a few things in common, everyone is wacky! one believes in god, one like riding bicycles, one likes the same sex, one likes to steal, one likes to on and on, how in the hell can you understand wacky people? YOU CAN’T, you are a little smarter than most, you figured it out, the problem is you can’t understand why they haven’t, but really you are only responsible for you, getting out is your choice, you can do what ever you want, your going to get out one way or another anyway, so what does it matter? if you died i’d say i’d say i’ll be joining you, sooner or later, the one’s i feel sorry for are the one’s that enjoy living then die, bummer, i feel the same way as you do, i just don’t resent it, that’s the way the ball bonces.

Zetsumei, I am shocked and stunned!! “I take offense the term, β€œpredator” πŸ™‚ in a way i understand, because so did i, that is what sent me in a tail spin 5 year’s ago, your post actually sounded like i felt, always looking for the WHY’S, I was better off before figuring it out, that’s the last thing i wanted to be, but after accepting it, which took some time i learned to deal with it, it’s nobody’s fault, it is what it is, a planet spinning in the universe loaded with predators! ha ha! all in denial while devouring every living creature and resource that comes in their path including each other. oh well.
