I want to be a creative person and come up with ideas for an animated series, film, comic, book, visual novel, and whatnot. However I always end up disappointed in what I come up with. What would your creative process look like if you had one? I picked up Hayao Miyazaki's book "Starting Point 1979-1996" since I thought reading his thoughts on it would be a good place to start.

>What would your creative process look like if you had one?
For me, it's pretty basic. Start with a general idea of "draw this", then pick up a pencil. Draw a lot of quick lines, erase them and draw slightly better lines. Repeat until a composition emerges, and the details come into focus. Stop when I'm sure I can't do better, or when I'm swallowed by despair. Sometimes drawings just suck and can't be fixed. It's a lot of trial and error, informed by things that have worked in the past, along with studying what other cartoonists have done. But doing is the important part. Creativity is a habit, a practiced skill.

>animated series, film, comic, book, visual novel, and whatnot.
I've had less success in this area. The longer ideas, the narratives etc. I think in small bites, quick intertactions. But I fill notebooks with literally everything. Things I see, conversations I hear, endless 'what if?' questions, or possible settings. This is the 'idea net' which Orson Scott Card described in his book 'How to Write Science Fiction & Fantasy'. Everything is a potential story, and writers collect the pieces while most people ignore them. Good book, would recommend.

First of all, writer's block is an actual thing. You can't fight it off if it happens and have to withstand it as it'll take its toll on you.
Track your interactions within societal circumstances and keep track of your reactions toward others — more often than not, it's the fact that you're being influenced by the mass that affects your ability to "be yourself"; unhinged.
Having picked up Miyazaki was a good idea, I suggest spending some time by yourself and delving deep into your inner persona — what drives you, what puzzles you?
A monologue is more cathartic than analyzing others and seeing what "the world" is doing.
Lastly, a creative process cannot be criticized, it is what it is. Do not thwart it, and instead resort to the stream of consciousness technique (see Wordsworth).

I didn't spend years posting on Kohl, you must be thinking of somebody else. I never said I was an elite either.

Odd weather won't kill of civilisation, poor nations fighting each other won't kill off civilization, people on the equator not being able to cool of through sweat won't destroy civilization. Civilisation is not the kind of things that you can destroy so easily. People dying of hunger in Africa won't cause everybody in Europe to permanently forget basic science and how to read.

You really don't seem to understand just how hard it is to kill off life. This isn't the first huge change in the climate and it wont be the last, life has survived all of them and life back then went through far worse and didn't have the luxury of science. You are being melodramatic and you should stop that, it only makes you look silly.

The DoD isn't expecting civilisation to collapse and all life on earth to die.

The great awakening of world have began ladies in gentlemen.
    Since when the great civilations of the world have hidden a  secret that no man have revealed!
today will be you date to wake up from state of dream you been sleep for many centuries
maybe the goverments of world and the religious of world knows about it?
you are in state of a "DREAM from the metrix"
budda called it a 'illucion" life. reality being perceptual.The creation is holographic,
containing all.The entire creation is Cosmic perception in varying forms of vibrational
sound frequencies,containing octaves of knowledge.and forming dimensions containig that
knowledge Each of these dimensions are ordered by their own universal laws that apply to the
expansive potential of the information within the dimensions.
" Uncounsious mind"=data transfer.01 quatum computing.or autopilot.
The "preconscious" refers to the thoughts you aren"t actively thinking of but can call to mind
given the right trigger."Consciousness" the state of being awake and aware of one 's surroundngs.
"subconsciousness" of or concerning the part of the mind of which one is not full aware but which
one's actions and feelings.So you see your whole life is about "thoughts,feelings,emotions.= reality.

Wow it's like I really am reading a chain email from my aunt in the early 2000s.

I think it's especially funny because I was just watching a video about some girl who became obsessed with both Columbine and the idea being this world isn't real. Hint: just because that's true doesn't mean you aren't also suffering with a dissociative disorder.
No. 53514 Kontra
You know there is something alluring about the preconscious in the manner of potential.

Though sound frequencies and a vibrational universe and it being a computer don't seem to add up so far to me since the first comes from a different dimension (mind=blown). Mayb I should ask
>the goverments of world and the religious of world

I think that it's entirely conceivable that individual consciousness and the arising of life is just the emergent property of a universe that is defacto operating as a kind of giant brain. Also this image is incorrect it isn't the galaxy but rather different star clusters. The way matter attracts makes it sure look super spooky though when you consider how absolutely massive a localization of matter has to be to pull entire galactic clusters into thin strands.

As an aside, one of the much more spooky and freakish things I've thought of is what if it's just that false vacuum really is a thing in which case we'd actually have large bubbles of effectively collapsed reality who contain within them other, newer universes, which operate exactly the same as our present universe's big bang merely being the result of collapsing a field https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/False_vacuum
The interesting thing is that the universe actually could be deleting itself and we'd never know it until exactly the moment this expanding ball of different physics traveling at the speed of light, also known as the speed of causality, finally reached us, or if any attempts at super advanced starfaring ships using exotic matter to create wormholes causes this.

I do think however it is profoundly and incredibly stupid for man to invent himself a machine, and attempt to model it as a basic machine upon his own brain, and then get so deluded and retarded as to mistake himself and his reality of being properties of his own machine. Now, we are not in a giant computer simulation in that sense. I'd posit it more likely if a simulation theory were correct that it'd be closer to a super entity merely dreaming of us and this world, or our existence and arising consciousness being a side effect, but to call it a computer is stupid beyond belief. A computer is merely an extra shitty attempt at facsimile of our own brains and our extra limited understandings of how our own brains operate.

Well, I would define "truth" as the least volatile and most stable state a configuration can be in, so to me, a pessimistic view of human behavior is the most "truthful", since the rock bottom is a set point, while "goodness" is infinitely distant and perpetually approachable. In the sense that you can approach it forever without reaching it.

All arrangements will eventually decompose to their most trivial states, and there's nothing more trivial than humans to be benefit-maximizing automata.

truth is absolute lack of contradictions, volatility has not much to do with it.
>since the rock bottom is a set point
things can always get better, but things can always get worse, too. like, when you're on position (-9000) on the real number line you can move to position 0 and continue to eventually reach 9000 or you can go to (-∞), (-∞)-1 and so on.
i'm not really arguing against pessimism though. pessimism can be useful while assessing probabilities of a particular situation. i'm arguing against being pessimistic in an absolute way, such that accepting negative states of affairs as absolute is desirable. this can logically only lead further into negativity.
>All arrangements will eventually decompose to their most trivial states
i think this statement might not be trivial to prove :)

i left /int/ around 2014 since kc became more and more an unbearable cesspool for /pol/tards and the like back then, however i've always been more of a passive lurker and never took part in socializing etc. t. actual assburger on /int/, so i wouldn't know about about irl circumstances of namefags like emokiddeh anyway. i remember iranball as quite an active poster who disappeared from /int/ all of a sudden during a time of turmoil in his country. although i wouldn't necessarily agree a lot with him, i still enjoyed his effortposts, so i was wondering what happened to him.

We are talking about the different metaphysical "levels" of truth. Here.
At the highest level, I see "tokens" proposed by Parmenides. They're like ideas, except more fundamental. They're the building blocks of ideas. Very primitive and fundamental. I could do a math analogy and say that a Parmenides' token is something like "Pi", an "idea" that is so fundamental, it is a lynchpin for the existence of other ideas. But really, it might go deeper than that. Like, pieces of immutable, indivisible information, from which all other information derives its properties.

You are talking about truth in a closer association with the notion of "fact". This definition of "truth" is circumstantial in that it can or can not be truth depending on the existence of an external object. (A contradition to the truth). Not "fundamental" enough for my tastes.

Me, I'm trying to introduce a notion of truth that's not entirely metaphysical, and can exist in a practical context, yet mimics the property of being entirely self-contained and immutable. "Truth" as in something that does not change its nature depending on what is introduced into the system. It does not interact with anything (for interaction requires mutability on part of the interacted), it does not change, can not be further decomposed. That is my notion of truth that is one level of abstraction (or "divinity" if you will) than platonic ideals, and yet can be formulated and utilized in a lower level, "mundane" context.

Since a few of us here are seriously interested in religion, let us have a discussion for all things related to faith, theology, spirituality, metaphysics, et cetera. Virtually everything within the purview of faith is welcome in this thread. Absolutely no restrictions on any particular belief system. Cults are as welcome as major religion so long as they have serious, substantial beliefs. Agnostics, atheists, secularists and the non-religious are welcome, but keep your inquiries and arguments in good faith.

It gets passed on through the ages and morphs over time. Well to start with the Christian God is a Canaanite god and many of the myths relating to the religion pre-Jesus are from Canaanite religion or other regional religions. Regions tend to copy from each other.

But yes, most of the people of the age could not read, particularly not peasants and many of Jesus disciples were peasants so it is unlikely that they actually wrote what is attribute to them. Early on there were many different versions of what would become the Bible written by different people, overtime a few of these became cannon and the rest were discarded(such as the one found recently that has Judas as the only disciple that understood the true message of Jesus while the rest did not).

It's the same with any religion, Greek myths have different interpretations and variants and what we have are just the variants that have survived, the Christians from early on had tried to centralise and unify into one common scripture so they removed much of the variant texts.

Hello, I am new here, so I'm not sure whether my post is going to be appropriate or not. Someone sent me here when I asked if there was any imageboard with less racism and rudeness.

I have been very depressed over a single disturbing idea for the past four years, and I need some advice regarding how I can overcome this. I am a twenty-two-year-old Indian man living in India (in case you didn't recognise the flag). When I was about eighteen years old, I started browsing online imageboard communities such as 4chan and Krautchan. Now, a lot of people in such websites have racist and White supremacist leanings. They are generally very impolite to brown/Black people such as myself. Moreover, they justify their racism by citing an ideology known as "race realism".

The idea behind race realism is that darker-skinned races are inherently intellectually inferior to lighter-skinned races, and are hence less evolved in terms of cognitive ability. According to studies conducted by a certain number of IQ researchers, the average IQ of India is around 82, while the average IQ of Sub-Saharan African is in the range 60 to 75. The threshold for intellectual disability in Western countries is supposed to be around 85. Hence the average Indian or African is intellectually disabled by Western standards. This explains why countries with darker-skinned people are poor, and why there has been very little contribution to academic fields from these countries.

Just ignore them. You should pay attention to yourself before your history and your race. If you are living a successful life and have good social interaction the rest doesn't really matter.

I'm 26. During the periods I feel lonely, overwhelmed by difficulties, faced by hard choices etc, I go online and waste hours, days, weeks in a trance/artificial coma. Mindless scrolling, refreshing, muscle-memory typing URLs. This is only stopped by external stimuli, and when there is none, it doesn't stop.

There were years when I (over)used the internet to study interesting things. News, technological breakthroughs, physics, politics, literature, you name it. I actually became very knowledgeable in some topics. But eventually my interest subsided, and nothing useful was yielded from my time online.

I spend literally years of my life on the internet. Thousand upon thousands of hours wasted completely on forums, communities and imageboards, on repeating, stupid, vile discussions. My ability for critical thought is no longer there. My inner monologue, my ability to think consciously and maintain my focus is crippled. My language skills in my first language declined so much that for some periods I was not able to remember the right words for many concepts in my own fucking language.

Right now I should have been talking to a friend. I should have gone out for a drink with someone. Maybe I should have visited a shrink for an expensive chat. Or I should be sleeping in anticipation of going to work tomorrow. But here I am, typing away my thoughts once again, on an anonymous imageboard. Publishing the details of some of my lowest lows for the world to see. Hoping something will change this time. It's just sad how someone at my age was developed such a deep addiction to something so stupid. Had I spend all those thousands of hours speaking to "real" people, like over Facebook or IRL, I would have had at least something to show for. Meaningful discussions. Continuity. Accountability. Maybe a handful of friends, a girlfriend, or maybe just even just the normal human experience of socializing. It would have been better over what I've been doing so far.

Longish reply here. Some of the things you wrote feel familiar from my past, so I can relate a little even if circumstances are different. I don't know you or psychology, so my ideas may be all wrong:

>such a deep addiction to something so stupid
It's nothing to feel ashamed about. Internet is naturally addictive, especially interactive feedback loops like Facecancer and imageboards, and especially for people who have no superior stimuli in their lives.

Perhaps it's a consolation to you that you may have wasted your prime years, and any topical knowledge you've accrued may never be useful, but you know there are way worse addictions, like substance abuse or gambling. I'm just saying this so you can hopefully feel a little better by comparing your situation to those people who've had it even worse, and appreciate that your addiction is less destructive on body and wallet.

More importantly, wow you're still young! Don't think: "How can someone so young already be such a failure?" I think your young age is an asset and greatly improves your chances of somehow managing to pull yourself out of your situation. Perhaps not soon, perhaps not on your next try, perhaps slowly, just keep trying.

Their business board is mostly crypto, not even crypto but just outright scams, no one there knows anything about anything at all.

They actually have their shit together as a site and as a knowledge base. krebs is just mouthbreathing retarded boomers and their abortion dodger children.
Even their porn is bad.
and the irony of this btw which I think speaks volumes about them all is the fact their porn board is seemingly half tranny shit and the other half cuck porn. This confuses me because the obvious fact is black guy on white women porn is a category because black men watch it. Yet I can't help but wonder if poltards in particular are this one ultra degenerate group of white guys who watches BBC porn for reasons I can't begin to understand.no seriously, trannies and black cocks. It really starts to make their bizarre behavior make a lot more sense.
