2021.10.23 21:27 pluckydamsel Should I bother pursuing a casual fling when I know they are leaving? Are casual flings worth it at all?
I'm 30/F. So I've been seeing this guy and I do like him, but he told me he was moving states soon. On second date I went to his house and told him upfront I'm not ready to have sex yet, and he respected that and let me stay over without crossing boundaries.
But, I am debating with myself if I "should" open myself up to a fling. I spent all of my twenties single, and my sexual experience is very limited.
The last guy I was with was the first sex I'd had for over ten years, he would NOT quit bringing my inexperience up but I didn't want to talk about it/talking about it made me embarrassed and was a turn off, the apartment was unclean and disgusting, he let the cat on the bed during sexy times even though it kept trying to crawl between us (ew), and the sex, just...it was bad (like he couldn't get it in and gave up bad). I broke it off with him after and he was so upset about it I felt like a jerk. But I knew I didn't want to ever go back.
My friends tell me to have more flings and one night stands, and that I'm putting too much thought into things (I do have a habit of doing that). "It's just sex" etc. I'm not religious but I honestly waffle back and forth between being okay with a fling and not being okay with it, and it just leads to me being unfairly wishy washy with men.

2021.10.23 21:27 ninnymoth Front teeth are bonded, worth it to get veneers?
When I was a kid my two front top teeth developed a cavity between them. Now that space has bonding that looks just like tooth. Well, is supposed to. It seems like the “crack” between the bonding and the teeth is stained; the whole bonding is darker than my real teeth they are attached to. Now the bonding is also loose and feels like it could fall out any time. These are common issues I’ve had with these over many years. I’m trying to get in to see a dentist but my appt is another month away. My smile makes me feel bad because it is discolored and cracked. Is there a better way to fix these teeth? Can I have them pulled and fake teeth implanted? Veneers? Other options? Im not sure what’s out there or if any other options are actually better long term solutions as far as function and aesthetics. I’m really worried and anxious I will end up losing both my two front teeth.

- Make the punches actually hit if you are right next to someone (because apparently the game currently thinks that you can’t do that).
- Fix the “punching instead of shooting” bug.

2021.10.23 21:27 sjmarotta completion of part 3: 1/3 Socrates (Shorter Version)
The Short Version I realized that I started out the last lecture promising to do the following things, which I did not do:
- We will continue our story and keep extracts from the authors we consider which help us to view their contributions to the history of philosophy through the lenses of "exponentially increasing questionability," "development of rules of thought," "adherence of propositional analytical program and denial of experiential subjective (and exceptions to this rule)," and "revolutions as dissolutions of previous crises that threaten to make the continuation of the game impossible," "all philosophers as members of one of two psychological camps, and few as attempted synthesizers of these inclinations," etc.
- We will keep referencing ideas with which N specifically or implicitly disagreed so that when we do our "rewind" in part 7 we will not have to consider new ideas to do it.
- We will provide a LIST of works which are LINKED in the lecture, full works which are worth reading if you really want to know the following figures and their thoughts (I am considering going back and doing this for some of the previous thinkers as well, when I revamp all of this which is being written in "first-draft" form right now.)
- I will pick 1 to 3 significant ideas or arguments developed by each philosopher, and give some time to those ideas.
- This has to be summary, so if you want more discussion on any specific part, argument, idea... JUST COMMENT about it, I promise the material we are briefly reviewing here is fertile ground for endless and the best conversations. That's why they have been preserved in the history of philosophy, one of the best ongoing conversations ever recorded.
- I'm going to start out each philosopher with a bullet-point list of take-away points.
- I will make a new post after this one with excerpts of some passages on or by the philosopher we are currently considering.
I realized that I got sucked into giving a full undergrad level review of Socrates as person in historical context and the role he played in the history of philosophy.
However, the point of this review of western thought was to provide context for Zarathustra. So, this is not a summary version of that longer post, but something different entirely. One can skip the last one entirely, and just read this one for the purposes of this review of Western Thought.
Read the last post to get a full picture of Socrates as man, and a reason to read selected works on him.
This is the post where I will ONLY do the checklist of viewing Socrates through the lenses we have identified so far in our discussion of the history of thought in the West. Who is Socrates to us? Recap on everything before and the Thalesian Revolution:
Thales shows up in a world where artists are starting to use conscious reasoning to manipulate their stories for purposed ends.
The world of arguments has started to open up, since one could disagree, even in one's own mind, with what are the right propositions to advance and how to advance them.
This came out of tens of thousands of years of dramatic
understanding of ourselves in a personal subjective world. underpinned by hundreds of thousands of years of image-driven (imaginary) artistic underpinnings of who we are and what personalities and personal forces constitute the world around us.
This image-driven thought was all unconscious, or almost all unconscious; and it was predated and couched in a world of Behavioral
manifestations of truths that did not exist in anyone's minds but which were operative and coded into us by the millions and billions of years of harsh natural selection working on evolving creatures to produce creatures with dreams and visions.
Thales shows up with a revolution. We can understand the world propositionally. We can find the words which accurately map onto being. He invented philosophy for us.
But a crisis emerged. Did he really succeed at identifying the Arche? Not everyone who came after him was happy with his answers. Debates flourished. In that milieu of debate a crisis emerged. Is there something fundamentally different
about the things in our heads which makes it impossible to map them onto the world perfectly? Is there an inescapable dualism between the mental and the physical which cannot be crossed? Parmenides and Zeno push the rational to a point where it seems absurd to even try to use it to understand the world.
Two camps emerge. Those who run to the materialism, the atomists; and those who run the other direction to idealism and rationality, the Eleatic purists. Their inability to find a common language, approach, vocabulary, agreement makes the whole philosophical project seem doomed already. (It is in this context that the sophists show up, with their conscious hypocrisy and cynicism (in the modern sense of the word) and set up schools of rhetoric where one can learn to win any
argument no matter which side.) The Socratic Revolution:
It is in this mess that Socrates enters the stage. Like Thales, he will start a new game for us, revive the game of Thales. Socrates also
wants the PURE the INTELLECTUAL the FORMS (or, maybe this is Plato putting words in Socrates's mouth). At any event, he turns away from the material, into the internal, BUT he does so because this is the way, he believes, to the TRUTH about what is really real.
Socrates values the infinite. The unlimited. That which is not subject to corruption (he argues that the soul is immortal, as we will see soon). He despises the body, the temporal, the limited, that which is subject to a mortal end. The concerns of the body mean nothing to him. (There are stories of him getting stuck on an idea or mental problem and simply standing still for many hours until he worked it out; even if he was standing in a doorway with people waiting for him inside, or when he was supposed to be sleeping before a battle the next day (he was an excellent and brave soldier, by all accounts)). From a Fichte perspective, Socrates is in the camp of the ideas and the ideal and not the material and the objective.
If there are two languages, as Spinoza says: the subjective and the objective; each capable of fully and consistently describing the entirety of phenomena in the Universe; then SOCRATES is in the camp which wants the INTERNAL not the external language.
A bit more on those two languages now:
- There is a chair before me... I can quantify it and describe it in space. It has length, breadth, width, qualities of impenetrability, it reflects light of certain wavelengths... etc.
- This is all the objective language; the language of things as external to the mind
- Then there is another language: There is the "chair in my mind". the concept of the chair. Actually, all the ideas I have of the first language are really ideas in my head. It is impenetrable to me. (not to a neutrino passing through it and the rest of the earth as many are every second once expelled from the sun as if nothing were solid to stop them). But the idea of the chair is functional it is "something one might sit upon" so a bean-bag and a stump are also chairs, a high-chair is NOT a chair to me, but I can conceive of it as being one for someone small in my life.
- This is the subjective internal language.
Socrates is looking for the "one over the many" he is looking for the thing which is true of ALL CHAIRS. the necessary and sufficient conditions for something to be a chair.
Socrates wants definitions of things.
A definition, for Socrates:
- The necessary and sufficient conditions for being X
- The definition of X should be terms other than X which apply to ALL the things we should call X and to NOTHING which we should not call X
- we can see the precursors of the "Platonic forms" here
He wants these things, but he turns the conversation of philosophy away from material questions to ethical questions.
Ethics is a branch of philosophy, and it is the one Socrates thinks is the most important. For Socrates, the purpose of philosophy is to give men the answer to the question: How shall we live the Good life (with a capital G)
Socrates believes that NO ONE does wrong on purpose... the errors we make are just MISTAKES. We think we are doing what is good, but we are not clear on what is really good. If we knew what the right thing to do way, and WHY it was the right thing, if we UNDERSTOOD the propositional truths and definitions of GOOD then it follows that we would do those things
. Our falsehoods and errors and sins and mistakes are all just attempts at doing what we think is good, but we fail because we LACK KNOWLEDGE.
(I think he is wrong about this, by the way: Edgar Allen Poe once said
that there was one thing all the philosophers missed in their examinations of the world: Perversion... doing what is wrong for its own sake. I have had many arguments with philosophers who think that Socrates was right
about this belief of his; but I have walked away from them concluding that the contortions one has to do to hold to this view reduce the proposition to a meaningless tautology; and I suspect those who adhere to it do so out of motivation
. But I always tell them that the reason they hold to it is that it is true of them
(although I suspect this is not the case) and that they are just too good to understand evil.) The most important story about Socrates:
The Oracle at Delphi was a seriously important person in Greece.
She was consulted whenever there were serious questions at stake.
Processing img 94fx29fcdav71...
- Croesus asked of the Oracle if he should go to war with the Persians or not.
- The answer was: If Croesus goes to war he will destroy a great empire
- He went to war, and the empire he destroyed was his own
Who was the Oracle?
- She was part jestefool (in the courtly sense: figure who can tell any truth to any man without regard to powerful station)
- Part Shaman (figure who contacted the divine forces directly and had coded things to tell us which require interpretation to make proper use of) There is evidence that she used psychedelics to achieve her visions. geologic, even, yes geological
- She was part mass-media (in the sense that she had massive influence over the narratives about current events and great figures that had hypnotic influence over the population in Greece like a single figure having the same effect of FOX News and CNN with their 24 hour "coverage")
- She was part "office of prophet" (as in the Old Testament sense: no one would imagine insulting her in any way (not that anyone would have been inclined to, the point is that it would not have been imaginable to consider it), she had authority, even though it was not authority in a political power sense; it was higher than that, like Elijah or Nathan)
- Her position of authority even above the highest military or political power-figures is also underlined as a truth because the temple in which she dealt and performed her prophetic office was the Temple of Apollo, the God of muse-dwelling higher culture, supreme court level justice, orchestral non-lyrical mathematical music, and institutions of higher learning and science and medicine. We can expand on this elsewhere.
- A friend of Socrates once asked the Oracle who was the smartest (most knowledgeable) man in all of Athens.
- The Oracle said: Socrates.
- Socrates believed that he knew NOTHING. He had consistently tried to find knowledge, and had never been satisfied that he had come to the kind of definitional propositional understanding which would have counted for him as knowledge.
- The story goes that it was this prophesy which started Socrates on his philosophical mission.
- His mission was to prove the Oracle wrong!
- How would he do this? Simple. If he, Socrates, was sure that he knew nothing, then all he would have to do is find one person who knew ONE THING which he didn't know, and that would prove the Oracle was wrong.
- But there was a problem with this idea: Socrates did know one thing. He knew that he didn't know anything.
- It turns out that in his journey to find a learned judge who could tell him what Justice was, or a successful businessman who could tell him what friendship was, or a political leader who knew what goodness was... everyone who PRETENDED (to themselves and/or to others) that they knew something WAS WRONG
- Socrates determined this by asking them what their definitions were, and then asking enough questions to be sure that he, Socrates, accurately understood what the person was trying to tell him... these conversations always ended the same: with the questions and their responses revealing to all participating in this conversation or even listening to it that the supposed teacher himself didn't actually know the answer to the question.
- The conversation ended with Socrates maintaining that HE DIDN'T know the answer either, and the conversation ended in confusion and an understanding that the answer to the important question was elusive to all.
- Eventually, Socrates realized that the Oracle was right. He knew more than all other people in Athens because he was the ONLY ONE who knew that he didn't know anything. No one else knew anything either, but they all thought they did.
- So, the one thing Socrates did know, which was that he was ignorant, was enough for him to know more than all others.
You can imagine how this kind of behavior could have pissed off more than a few people. The Socratic Method:
This process of giving examination, looking for consequences of the answers, deductions and inferences, and then tracing them with consistency until they reveal a contradiction of the original supposed answer... this is called the "Socratic Method".
Socrates was ugly:
- The Elenchus (The Socratic Method)
- to cross examine with the intention of refuting your claim
- in Socrates it takes on a very formal logical structure
- Socrates asks a primary question; then he asks that the answer be explained and looks for deductions.
- The primary question is always possible to put in the form: “What is x?” even if it is not written that way.
- Interlocutor answers the question. “X is Y.”
- Then Socrates sets off on a series of secondary questions.
- Sometimes the relation between the secondary questions and the primary one are not clear.
- Eventually Socrates gets the interlocutor to say something which is in conflict with the original response.
- At which point Socrates says: that X obviously can’t be Y, then
- And so they start off with another one: “X is Z”
- lather rinse repeat
- In the Euthyphro, for example
- 4 or 5 answers to what piety is are proposed and shot down
- And we end in Aporia
- A state of perplexity and in confusion
- Poria is Greek for passage
- A-poria is "no way forward"
- We do NOT know what piety is at the end of the Euthyphro
- Mark of all the Early Socratic dialogues
- They are aporetic
- They end in bewilderment
- No answer is given to the question that they are setting out to answer
- We may have said before; most scholars agree that Plato's early dialogues more closely represent the actual Socrates; his last ones are more Plato's philosophy put in the mouth of a character named Socrates; Plato was seeing his work as taking Socrates's ideas further, interpreting them properly, finding consequences he never found and answers he may have not even been wanting.
- The Republic comes right in the middle of this continuum, and is one of the 5 books every educated literary Western man needs to have read, IMO.
- Eironeia is first used in Greek to describe Socrates.
- He is pretending to be ignorant and asking to be taught all because he is trying to show that his teacher knows nothing. There is a discontinuity between his stated purpose and his actions and what they actually accomplish! We need a word for that!
- But perhaps this is unfair, I mean, maybe it applies to Plato, but Socrates may have genuinely ended in a state of aporeticism. He said he didn't know, and he proved it, and consistently held to it... the only change is he showed you don't know either.
It has to seem weird that this is a point at all in the discussion of philosophical ideas and how they develop, but it is actually a really important fact.
Let us start with the opening to The Republic:
I went down yesterday to the Piraeus with Glaucon the son of Ariston, that I might offer up my prayers to the goddess (Bendis, the Thracian Artemis.); and also because I wanted to see in what manner they would celebrate the festival, which was a new thing. I was delighted with the procession of the inhabitants; but that of the Thracians was equally, if not more, beautiful. When we had finished our prayers and viewed the spectacle, we turned in the direction of the city; and at that instant Polemarchus the son of Cephalus chanced to catch sight of us from a distance as we were starting on our way home, and told his servant to run and bid us wait for him. The servant took hold of me by the cloak behind, and said: Polemarchus desires you to wait.
I turned round, and asked him where his master was.
There he is, said the youth, coming after you, if you will only wait.
Certainly we will, said Glaucon; and in a few minutes Polemarchus appeared, and with him Adeimantus, Glaucon’s brother, Niceratus the son of Nicias, and several others who had been at the procession.
Polemarchus said to me: I perceive, Socrates, that you and your companion are already on your way to the city.
You are not far wrong, I said.
But do you see, he rejoined, how many we are?
And are you stronger than all these? for if not, you will have to remain where you are.
May there not be the alternative, I said, that we may persuade you to let us go?
But can you persuade us, if we refuse to listen to you? he said.
Certainly not, replied Glaucon.
Then we are not going to listen; of that you may be assured.
Adeimantus added: Has no one told you of the torch-race on horseback in honour of the goddess which will take place in the evening?
With horses! I replied: That is a novelty. Will horsemen carry torches and pass them one to another during the race?
Yes, said Polemarchus, and not only so, but a festival will be celebrated at night, which you certainly ought to see. Let us rise soon after supper and see this festival; there will be a gathering of young men, and we will have a good talk. Stay then, and do not be perverse.
Glaucon said: I suppose, since you insist, that we must.
Very good, I replied.
Accordingly we went with Polemarchus to his house; and there we found his brothers...
The point is to understand the valuing system of the Greeks at the time when Socrates emerges with his new strange game.
What is beautiful, what is strong, what is healthy... these are what is Good
. Obviously! think the Greeks.
Notice the threat of physical violence if Socrates is not willing to stay and hang out and talk with his old friends. (there is a loving undertone in all of this, and it shouldn't be taken as actual animosity between them); but understand the clash of different values that Plato is offering to us in dramatic form as he presents to us Socrates and his project.
Socrates offers a third way: Instead of you overpowering me, or me winning a fight against you (unlikely)... might I not use words
to convince you to let me go?
But can you persuade us, if we refuse to listen to you? he said.
Could not be clearer.
Nietzsche's criticism (unfair if understood in a simple way, but perhaps psychologically very profound): Socrates couldn't gain honor and esteem in Athens because he was Ugly and not powerful... so he invented a new wrestling match
, a game of words that he could win... and he dominated all of Greece with this new game.
There is an historical confirmation of this kind of interpretation. It is significant that the best and most important of the students of Socrates was Plato. Plato was the MMA champion of ancient Athens. He was gorgeous and powerful; strong fit healthy beautiful... his life was completely dominated by Socrates and his new game of thinking in words. Socrates slept with a copy of Aristophanes under his pillow:
We talked about Aristophanes in the previous long version of this lecture. We won't repeat a lot of it here. Short summary: The Clouds was a South Park style and quality satire production of Aristophanes which turned Socrates on his head for fun or maybe as a way of exposing
him as the consistent and brilliant charlatan he was?
Nietzsche said that Plato (from whom we have most all of what we know of Socrates) slept with scrolls of Aristophanes under his pillow
And with regard to Aristophanes—that transfiguring, complementary genius, for whose sake one PARDONS all Hellenism for having existed, provided one has understood in its full profundity ALL that there requires pardon and transfiguration; there is nothing that has caused me to meditate more on PLATO'S secrecy and sphinx-like nature, than the happily preserved petit fait that under the pillow of his death-bed there was found no "Bible," nor anything Egyptian, Pythagorean, or Platonic—but a book of Aristophanes. How could even Plato have endured life—a Greek life which he repudiated—without an Aristophanes!
-- Nietzsche Beyond Good and Evil, The Free Spirit (emphasis mine)
You can see that this is a serious and considered analysis of the works of Plato and Aristotle and is not just a joke (though it is a fantastic joke).
Not to say that we agree or disagree with this analysis, but just to leave it there. Socrates as hero:
The definition of an educated man as someone who has some small conception of how little he knows
Socrates seems serious to me. His project was proper.
Why not hold ideas with an open hand? (It isn't really until later Plato that Socrates is made to affirm doctrines); the life of Socrates started and ended in consistent aporiaticism
If you take this view, you can passionately argue for whatever is the best view you have so far heard, and immediately abandon that view the second that you find a better argument, your consistency is in the method and not in the dogma you affirm.
Perhaps you have to be murdered early if you are going to live this way without collapsing back into a premature certainty of some sort; maybe that is why Socrates made it so likely that he would face the death penalty and avoided escape when everyone wanted him to take this option instead of the Hemlock.
This is dissatisfying to most, including to Socrates's most famous student, Plato, who is really the founder of the game we all played after Socrates. But Socrates's game was purer
and more appropriate
in my view. It just isn't satisfying to most... but the rest of philosophy can be thought of as proof demonstrated
in the pointlessness of doing more with words than Socrates was willing to do.

2021.10.23 21:27 heyyyaaaa Vitamin A helps me eat most foods that broke me out except grains... does anyone know the missing piece to all this
I used to break out from coffee, any type of dairy, fruits like bananas and grapefruit, oatmeal, honestly almost everything aside from eggs and meat. Once I introduced cod liver oil I was able to eat a lot more things.
Except for one thing, grains. Any type of bread or flour, even white and brown rice, still breaks me out.
So Vitamin A lets my body digest more things than it used to and it seems to help a lot of people online, but for some reason it does not let me process rice and bread.
I thought it might be a gluten thing since it seems to check those boxes but I can eat oatmeal but not rice, when it is usually the reverse for people with gluten intolerance.
I am 6 months in on Accutane and even Accutane does not let me process grains at all this far in.
I am curious if anyone went through something similar or if anyone knows why Vitamin A lets me open up my diet to more things except grains. Or if they could suggest something that might help.
