    The faster you go the more time slows down. When you reach the cosmic speed limit (speed of light) time actually stops.

    Is it weird in here, or is it just me?

      Recapitulation

      "Sorcerers say that we live our life from a distance, as if it were a memory. We spend life
      hooked, hurt by something that happened thirty years ago and carrying a burden that
      doesn't make sense anymore. 'I don't forgive it!' we scream, but it is not true, it is
      ourselves we don't forgive!

      "The emotional commitments we make with people are like investments we have made
      along the way. We must be completely insane to leave our heritage thrown away like
      that!

      "The only way we can become complete again, is by picking up that investment,
      reconciling ourselves with our energy, and dissipating the heavy burden of feelings. The
      best method the sorcerers have discovered for this is to remember the events of our
      personal history until we have completely digested them. Recapitulation takes you out of
      the past, and inserts you into the now.

      "We cannot escape having been born as bored fucks, nor having invested most of our
      luminosity in making children or in maintaining tiring relationships. But we can
      recapitulate; it cancels out the energetic effects of those acts.

      "Fortunately, in the realm of energy, things like time and space don't exist. So it is
      possible to return to the place and to the same moment when the events happened, and
      relive them. It is not very difficult, since we all know very well where we are hurting.

      "To recapitulate is to stalk our routines, subjecting them to a systematic and merciless
      scrutiny. It is an activity that allows us to visualize our life as a totality, and not just as a However, and although this may seem strange, only sorcerers
      recapitulate as an exercise; other people only happen to do it by chance.

      • As an aside, what brand do you smoke Derpamix? I was with American Spirit for a while, but something has gone terribly wrong in their processing procedure 'cos their weed tastes like it's permeated with grit now.

        In the UK, I'm particularly partial to 'Kendal Gold Shag'. I can now offer shags to people, and we all make a quaint and obvious joke about it. It's basically loosely cut light & dark baccy mixed together. I figured it was a pertinent analogy for mankind.

          What a coincidence, going to read this now.

          EDIT EDIT:

          They apparently moved to America, I think, but I might have missed a generation there or something. Either way, this info was pretty much taken from 23andme.com

          And since time is non-linear, it means we can actually go 'back' to an experience and choose to to release the effects of that memory.
          I find myself doing this frequently, though, I never really release them. As a thought, those events are already recorded, so changing them is impossible, making traveling back to the past impossible. Which leads to arrow of time principle and special relativity.

          And also:

          It is very possible to actively slow time down.

          Move through space faster.

          The faster you go the more time slows down. When you reach the cosmic speed limit (speed of light) time actually stops.
          special relativity says that the passage of time for two objects is relative on how fast they are going with respect to each other. The greater the relative velocity, the slower time passes. If a spaceship were to circle around the earth at .99 times the speed of light, time would go about 7 times slower for it than normal. And going to the past is impossible for particles with mass because from special relativity we know it would require infinite energy and events are already recorded.

          I roll my own using American Spirits ROY organic tobacco. The US passed a law(like everything ) that requires cigarette paper to use a flame retardant. So, fuck that. I want my stuff to be pure.

          I agree that the store brand tastes a bit off now, even my favorite black pack. I think a lot of it is that the stores leave them sitting on the shelf too long, and without preservatives they go stale a lot faster. Before that I would sometimes smoke Lucky Strikes, and Dunhills.

          Never heard of that, funny name though. Also, god damn your analogy made me laugh out loud.

          • I've been thinking more about nature versus nurture, in relation mostly to how people I've known have changed dramatically when they're taken from an environment and placed in an entirely different one. My environment has been stagnant and mostly the same for the last several years, so my overall attitude has not changed very much. Sure, different experiences have accumulated and added up to minor personality quirks, and (im)maturity, but overall I'm the same person. Then, I'll look at friends, who have changed environments entirely and changed, to me, for the worst. Overall, they're probably in a much more stable and better situation, but I find that there is a drastic change in what pulled me into them in the first place. Now their opinions are overall abhorrent to me. I think it's a bad idea to continue communicating with a person that invokes these feelings in me simply for being the complete opposite opinion wise, because our opinions definitely clash, and they equally despise what I have to say too. I can't fault them for it though, as long as they're happy, and people really are adaptive, as much as I don't like that factor in human beings. I've always disliked change though.

            When I decide to shake from my current foundation, I wonder if I'll change that much too. I guess, I've never really reflected much on my own personal change as I've gotten older, to me I feel like I've always been the same person. Maybe my situation has never really changed much, which is certainly a possibility. I also wonder if they really notice the changes they go through either, because, if you confront someone about it, they usually deny it.

            • Hmmm... I think I understand what your saying.

              Ten plus years ago, I changed my environment. I wanted the change because I didn't want to continue in a destructive lifestyle. I was literally killing myself slowly with all the stuff I was doing.

              In my case, I changed for the better. I'm still the same me. I just have different preferences and habits. I still get along with my old friends, though we didn't hang out anymore. But now 10 years later I'm in contact with most if them. Still close too.

              Sometimes I wonder if they judge me, thinking I'm going to judge them bc they still dable in drugs. They think I will judge them but I don't. I love them and want the best for them. I'm stable and will be the stability they need when they need it. (Don't know if that makes much sense.) lol

              Now that I wrote all this out, I don't think it's really the same thing you're talking about!

              I had to make the decision to not care what others thought of me. I know this doesn't apply to you. I'm just rambling.

              • You may have seen Yoyo and I converse about this very topic some time ago.

                As much as it pains me to admit, we are not immune to our environment. Some people are strong enough to overcome their environment, but I wasn't and perhaps neither are you. I was depressed and anxious where I grew up. Even my family tells me that I am not the same person since I moved away. Other factors may have included me just growing the fuck up but I don't know how happy I'd be if I had continued to stay in LA.

                Is it possible that you are just envious of your friends who moved away?
                Is it weird in here, or is it just me?

                • I really dislike change too and for good reason, I think. The one time I made a big change in my life (moving from CA to PA), it was a big mistake.

                  I also dislike it when other people change. I pretty much want everything to stay exactly the same as it was 10 years ago. And every time someone gets married and (god forbid) has kids, it's pretty traumatic to me.

                  But I don't really think that's what you're talking about. What kinds of changes are you looking to make?

                    Yeah, it is and isn't. It's more like a personality shift entirely. It's mostly political views, I think. I'm what people review to as "naive teenager" who read a few too many Ayn Rand books. They hold opinions I hate completely, no matter how hard I try to look passed it because people are worth more than their opinions, though sometimes it's really really hard to.

                    As much as it pains me to admit, we are not immune to our environment. Some people are strong enough to overcome their environment, but I wasn't and perhaps neither are you.

                    I'm happy they are in a better place for them, not really jealous. This place is poisonous for me, but it's all I really know. I don't find myself envying anyone else for their lifestyles, oddly enough -- not even the wealthy. I know that they all have their own share of bullshit to deal with, and I can shape my own life to be exactly how I want it to be when I get over this false complacency.

                    I really dislike change too and for good reason, I think. The one time I made a big change in my life (moving from CA to PA), it was a big mistake.

                    I also dislike it when other people change. I pretty much want everything to stay exactly the same as it was 10 years ago. And every time someone gets married and (god forbid) has kids, it's pretty traumatic to me.

                    But I don't really think that's what you're talking about. What kinds of changes are you looking to make?
                    To roam, I think. If I settle one place for too long I begin to see all the bad things about it. I'd rather never stay that long, and have only fond memories of places to look back on as I get older.

                    I just dislike when people change entirely, not just their habitats, so I agree with you. Or maybe on the flip, they were always the same and I never saw it before? Who knows.

                    • Today I ate a large cheese and fruit pizza. It was everything I hoped it would be, and likely loved me more than I loved it, and that's a lot of love for a lot of pizza.

                        • IME it is extremely difficult to maintain relations with old friends and acquaintances, whoever it is that you were once close to, when the realization comes that you have really grown apart. It tends to grow into resentment overtime.
                          For me personally moving on works well. Whether that's good or bad I enjoy solitude, too.

                              I find this to be the case for me too. Solitude anyway. It's best to watch people grow from afar, so I can be literally invisible, as opposed to invisible to them.
