I think i'm having an existential crisis

Today on the bus I was just staring out the window as usual then I started to wonder how society goes around, and why?
I looked at the people and the traffic outside and wondered to myself what keep them from just rioting or something, why do they just go along with the way things are? Do they never question everything? Why we shop at all the same stores, why we have the traffic rules we have? Why we have to follow the social norms we have to follow? Is everyone just brainwashed into following along with everything we're told? Then I looked at the sky and wondered to myself - Is the sky even real? And then I realized we're all just floating in space and it made me feel really uneasy, tiny and a little scared. I can't believe that the world is the way it is and that I exist in it and what it's all for? Do we even have control of anything or is that an illusion?

Is It Normal?
Help us keep this site organized and clean. Thanks!

    • Really? I dunno, just can't help, but to fixate on the possibility of the people rioting, I don't think they really have anything to riot about. The talk about rioting in this post just gives me flashbacks of all those pathetic Hillary Clinton supporters marching in the streets with their eyes full of tears like the little bitches they are, and how those people stopped traffic. Whenever I think of it I think those people deserve a face full of tear gas, because someone needs to give em something to cry about! I've been a lifelong Democrat, but I just couldn't bring myself to vote for that disgusting bitch, Hillary Clinton. I'm no longer registered as a Democrat, because nowadays that party is full of far leftwing scumbags.

      ... but seriously, would have paid good money to put on riot gear, and hit em with the tear gas just for a fun adventure... and don't get me started on those ANTIFA subhuman scumbags, if it were up to me the police would have cattle prods to use of those living, breathing trolls, especially that Moldy Locks bitch. I could watch a police officer in full riot gear shoot down an ANTIFA person, and all I would think think is good riddance.

  • One time I was in a shopping centre and I started to think about how humans are basically just ape like animals and I wondered what humans would look like to an unbiased observer and it changed my perception of the people around me and I felt like I had just been dropped in the middle of a society of ape like animals all running around buying things and taking themselves seriously.

  • Know what? You have to find your place in the universe, and your place in the world. The more intelligent you are, the longer it will take. Certain things help certain people. Philosophy, physics, cosmology, economics, maths, even the superiority of cultural adaptiveness, helped me a great deal. But, almost everyone thinks a perfect world is bullshit.

  • We're probably just Sims in a simulation with or without a player. That and most people are definitely brainwashed. I feel that way every day, good to see someone woke and aware of what's going on. It's like 70% of the people on the planet are robots.

  • You have control over nothing because you can't even decide what your thought are. Control is an illusion.

  • I dunno, but if people go out in the street, and riot my love, and support go to the cops in the riot gear! I don't have much love for people who think they have the right to stop traffic for their bullshit. MORE TEAR GAS!!!

    ...but seriously I read your post, and who is this "they" to whom you refer?


    "I looked at the people and the traffic outside and wondered to myself what keep them from just rioting or something, why do they just go along with the way things are?

    *I wouldn't riot, because I have nothing to riot about, all of my dissatisfactions, and failures in life are of my own doing, and most of it is not society's fault.

    "Do they never question everything?"

    *What is to question? Define "everything". Who is they?


    "Why we shop at all the same stores, why we have the traffic rules we have?

    *I shop at the same stores, because those are the places I prefer, those are the places that cater to my needs, and sell the products, services I want. We have the traffic rules that we do for the purpose of preventing accidents. This isn't rocket science!


    Why we have to follow the social norms we have to follow? Is everyone just brainwashed into following along with everything we're told?
    *Not everyone who lives peacefully in a civilized society is brainwashed.


    "Do we even have control of anything or is that an illusion?"

    *Yes, you have control over yourself, and no, it is not an illusion. If you so choose you can seize the day, and take the opportunity to use good punctuation. It's not that difficult.
