Why are we like this, unable to find solutions for some of our problems. Maybe in the future everything will be solved. I wonder if the rest of the world would be fine without humans existing or maybe we will create a perfect world for our species in the future without affecting other species too much.

I don’t know why any of us have to suffer or why I was even born when I can’t stop feeling such pain. But I’m really sorry to everyone here for feeling such pain. For my pain and for your pain. I’m also sorry I speak too much of myself. I just have nowhere else to turn and I don’t know what to do. I’ve felt like crying for days but haven’t been able to, as I’ve felt too dry inside to. I know I don’t deserve to talk on this site because I’m such a screw up and I know many have it worse. But that doesn’t mean I’m not suffering, depressed or in pain. I’m sorry if I wasted anyone’s time. I don’t know why I keep writing on here, but I can’t even tell anymore if I even have a place on this site or not, because I can’t even tell anymore if I’m entitled to feeling pain or not, but I feel like I’m not. I feel like dying, but I can’t as I’m trapped here on this earth. I feel like I’m selfish for feeling so horrible, and I’m sorry.

Im not sure I can be stopped this time nor do I want to be. I seem to attract evil mean women in my life and this latest is no exception. Oh they are so nice in the begining but in the end their true colors show, I suppose I was destined for pain, misery, suffering and sorrow. I can’t wait much longer to be in heaven with no more tears. This 60 plus years of life has been very cruel to me. I just want to lay down and die.

Plants, for the most part, evolved photosynthesis only once and it is believed that this process is so complex for life to evolve that it may not happen again. It is and remains the only means for life to gain energy directly from the environment and every other life form has to eat off of plants and eachother to sustain energy. through ‘recycling’ Plants do no generate a large amount of metabolic energy and as such all species that feed off of them have limited availability. By extension the energy gained in consumption is extremely low, especially after the cost of energy required to find new sources of it. The experience of suffering may be a limitation “scripted in” to life on earth that is ever struggling to gain any real surplus of energy. The human body is extremely efficient, Read: very good at bringing down the hammer on high energy exertion. Hence our physical weakness and proneness to injury. And so we appear to run on a ‘really low budget’ for any high energy state – be it exertion, motivation, happiness, will power – is often of too high a cost in energy for the body to provide. Even if we have an abundance of food the body is (de)evolved to extract only a certain limit…a very low limit of energetic potential. And so the prevalence of chemicals in the brain that command motivation, willpower, happiness etc. are finely tuned to keep one under a certain cloud that forces them to a lower enrgy state to conserve on power. Sometimes this mechanism is even more oppressive in certain individuals manifesting in the various depressive states many in here experience on a day to day basis. And so perhaps suffering, physically and mentally induced, is a mechanism of energy conservation in a life force that has not found a way to effecively synthesise the prevailing heat and light energy across the planet. These sensations of pain, hurt, numbness, so called “laziness”, existential dilemma are all a system of energy limitation imposed on beings (humans) whose limitless minds feel utterly trapped by this underwhelming form of life they find themselves in. A thought… Log in to Reply TheG 11/7/2023 - 10:23 am Of course this is referring to the genreal state of why life ‘feels so hard’ and that trying to do anything is often torture. Suffering is of course also a survival reflex that helps our frail forms avoid being totally wrecked on a perfect for life planet.

And abscent capitalism….. horrors, so we’re told. because we came incredibly close to having a compassionate healthcare system. All the groundwork was done through massive studies during the world wars. And it may or may not surprise you; the rich jerks said the same thing then that they do now; “if people have healthcare, why would they work? if we feed everyone, what movitates them to work?’ and went on to make the case successfully during the red scare that individual liberty means at the core that rich people are the best people, and should never pay taxes or be held to account. And they then went and undid 40 years of human rights advances. so you have to suffer, I have to suffer, we’re all glorious martyrs to the only American God; materialism short answer; Herbert Hoover and Ronald Reagan. If you were to point fingers at the two worst sources of modern misery, there you go.
