Anon, "my brother in christ" is a common imageboard term of endearment. It does not imply any christliness and should not trigger this kind of reaction in a cosy rec thread.

Does anyone have any experience with meditation or mindfulness?
Ive been seeing it again and again and it *supposedly, i havent checked myself** studies show it can help you focus better and reduce overstimulation from the outside world.
As someone who has struggled my entire life being overstimulated by everything, and who has felt my anxiety increase and my ability to focus drop over the past few years, I wonder if i should try meditating. Leaving aside all of the spiritual aspects, and leaving aside all of the stemlord objections, are there tangible benefits? Did anyone try?
How do i properly do it? For how long?
Thank you.

For the first time in my life i have enough money to travel and see the friends i have made over the years in their home country.
While i am on my travels i would like to see some historic areas of significance for communism/socialism/anarchism. I am going to Europe and i would like to go places where i can soak in some history and perhaps learn a little bit more about the radical tradition.

What places are there of communist significance in Europe?

I have a tiny list right now because i don't even know what places to go

Marx's grave
That Tito theme park in Serbia
Exarchia in Greece
That one communist town in Spain.
Barcelona CNT shit
The paris streets rn

anything else?

I also visited the monument and there was a poster on the wall advertising a festival in August, so that might be a reason to visit it again.


Vampiric piece of shit

The Greek one sounds good, just be aware of current events when you go. And don't be that anarcho-capitalist kid ;)
If you're in USA, one of the intentional anarchist* communities there could be of interest.

Really interesting shit! I'm reading the wiki article. Apparently he believed in an "atomic swerve" that meant that the universe wasn't deterministic which allowed for free will. This is something that people have argued today, regarding quantum mechanics. I disagree and think that physical determinism is compatible with "free will", but seeing the argument made eons ago is really something! Also everything he says about how to achieve a nice life, my god! Very good shit. I will need to read this.

>The alienation of the spectator to the profit of the contemplated object (which is the result of his own unconscious activity) is expressed in the following way: the more he contemplates the less he lives; the more he accepts recognizing himself in the dominant images of need, the less he understands his own existence and his own desires. The externality of the spectacle in relation to the active man appears in the fact that his own gestures are no longer his but those of another who represents them to him. This is why the spectator feels at home nowhere, because the spectacle is everywhere.
>Man, “the negative being who is only to the extent that he suppresses Being,” is identical to time. Man’s appropriation of his own nature is at the same time his grasp of the unfolding of the universe. “History is itself a real part of natural history, of the transformation of nature into man” (Marx). Inversely, this “natural history” has no actual existence other than through the process of human history, the only part which recaptures this historical totality, like the modern telescope whose sight captures, in time, the retreat of nebulae at the periphery of the universe. History has always existed, but not always in a historical form. The temporalization of man as effected through the mediation of a society is equivalent to a humanization of time. The unconscious movement of time manifests itself and becomes true within historical consciousness. Properly historical movement, although still hidden, begins in the slow and intangible formation of the “real nature of man,” this “nature born within human history–within the generating action of human society,” but even though that society developed a technology and a language and is already a product of its own history, it is conscious only of a perpetual present. There, all knowledge, confined within the memory of the oldest, is always carried by the living. Neither death nor procreation is grasped as a law of time. Time remains immobile, like an enclosed space. A more complex society which finally becomes conscious of time devotes itself to negating it because it sees in time not what passes, but only what returns. A static society organizes time in terms of its immediate experience of nature, on the model of cyclical time.

The admins have taken a slower care on promoting this site as some downsizing method. They won’t even create a Wikipedia page even with having resources and ability to do so for more than a year now.

So you might be looking at the name of this thread and thinking Language learning as a hobby? Why yes, this thread is to be dedicated to those that are learning a new language as a hobby.

Not only this but to provide resources for those that wanna get help with their progress and just talk about their language learning journey.

Their "With Ease" courses are still decent for beginners, from the reviews I'm reading. Some of them you can find with audio on libgen.


Fuck it, dumping Routledge's Modern Grammars, too
There are workbooks for each of them that you can find yourself on libgen


Or, well, you can find workbooks for a few of them

First thread >>2278

I just watched the new Batman movie, it's about as boring and derived as you'd expect. The villain is a real psycho, apparently he hates Bruce Wayne's father because of his scam charity orphanage where children froze to death and the villain himself grew up in, and tries to publicly reveal his father's ties to organized crime and political corruption. Luckily Batman eventually teaches him the true meaning of love and forgiveness before the villain is thrown into an insane asylum for the rest of his days, and the credits roll.

I also watched Memoria, which was just as boring and I have nothing to say about.

Noticed a lot people talking about Tolkien’s works and philosophy. So, I created a thread specifically dedicated for that and other things related to it, like the movies and games.

My dude the CIA had their hands in all kinds of crazy shit. The amount of schizo you'd have to get to make implausible accusations about them is pretty high.

Fascinating and another important point about "show don't tell" is that it's an inherently subtle way of writing, as in it's a bit harder to understand the point than if the point was spelled out. This means that some percent of readers will miss the point, and it also makes it easier for the writer to miscommunicate in the first place. This contributes to the Death of the Author school of interpretation, since it's a lot easier to glean different meanings from a text the more ambiguous it is. That makes it easier to subvert or co-opt a text and in fact this is something we see all the time. It makes me wonder if the glowies are involved in some of the memes out there misinterpreting things like American Psycho to be some cool sigma grindset guy.


> to focus literature and journalism on the individual, feelings, sensory details, rather than on community, political theory, and large-scale political concepts.
That's not what "show don't tell" us about. Meds.


It kind of is. If you emphasize showing things that puts your focus on direct experience, which has to be situated in a particular perspective, i.e. individualist. If you emphasize concepts those tend to be interconnected, broadly applicable, and can be held in common across different perspectives.

>Since Tolkien acted like Middle Earth was actually part of this world (implausibly) then he had to explain why there are no Orcs, Hobbits, Trolls, Dwarves or Elves here today. These peoples “faded” away in the face of man’s becoming more dominant and taking over more and more of Middle Earth.

Loyal parents who sacrificed so much for the nation
Never feared the ultimate fate.
Now that the country has become red,
who will be its guardian?

Our mission, unfinished, may take a thousand years.
The struggle tires us, and our hair is grey.
You and I, old friends,
can we just watch our efforts be washed away?

English is very rhythmic thanks to its analytic grammar, which is why iambic pentameter is so popular


i've written so much stuff over the years but i never post it because i'm still holding out the hope that i might be able to publish it one day. but I should just post it instead, let go of the childish fantasy that i should make money off of it, or have my name attached to it, and just let it go. chatgpt will be able to do all this stuff in a few years anyway, and hip hop is way more popular than written poetry


Post too long. Click here to view the full text.


do you seriously have so little faith in your poetry that you think fucking chatgpt can make something like it


Maybe you could try performing it to music. That's how much poetry historically was originally presented.
Even if it's not there currently, AI is getting better all the time.
