Ignorance


Some might call it stupidity—others, ignorance.

IDK to be honest.

It probably doesn't make sense to call myself a realist when being hopeful but I feel like maybe it's because I want to be like the folk out there who are happy and lovey-dovey for why I can be so.

Though I have always made it my practice to be pleasant to everybody, I have not once actually experienced friendship. I have only the most painful recollections of my various acquaintances ..."

Death is my hope. I'm waiting for my parents gone. And then I will be with them.

People who criticize me about my communication, behavior, and appearance. Being put in complex situations that people aren't in, my knowledge about humanity, and being ignored physically and mentally.

Multi-Agent Quantum AI Computers governing citizens 24/7 using Quantum Cryptography Satellites to run a thought interval to generate cryptographic keys to refresh key information into thoughts to channel the communication 24/7.

NSA Software Engineers & NASA computationally remapping buildings, jobs, relationships, wealth, education, and income using bio intelligence system to manage citizens time & events. Getting away with airplane crashes, accidents, diseases, homelessness, and suicides.

At the moment...not much of anything. The one thing that has given me hope in the past is still out there but gets more out of my reach each day. I guess I still hold on to at least some hope it will happen but I just don’t see how. And because of that, nothing else
matters or gives me hope right now.

I realized it didn't matter how bad SA made me feel, I was always the ultimate authority on what I say and do. This made SA beatable the same way I'm capable of getting on a roller coaster despite my severe acrophobia. The hope wasn't that I'd somehow get better: it was that I was in control of my life and if I had to feel bad talking to people for the rest of my life so be it, but I wasn't going to let it stop me from doing what I really wanted to do.


Fortunately, brains are plastic and when you stop reinforcing certain neural pathways they get weaker. My SA is a mere fraction of what I experienced before.

I feel like there is a lot I haven't experienced yet in life and the prospect of experiencing those things gives me hope.


I'm aware that I am often standing in my own way (i.e. being too afraid to do things) so I know that change is within me to some extent.


I still look young and probably look better than I have ever done before (except for thinning hair...).



I've studied hard, saved up some money and I'm physically in the best shape of my life. I use my hobby to give structure to my life and set goals.


I try to be optimistic but I know I must begin to make changes otherwise I will continue to drift through life.

My thoughts are headed in this direction too lately...for me
it is a tough pill to swallow but I just don’t see any light at the end of the tunnel right now.

I guess I'm just an anomaly. (on this board anyway) There's always a light at the end of the tunnel for me - I know it will get easier. And it always does - eventually.

I probably shouldn't answer cause its pretty negative & ain't nobody got time fo dat.






And all our yesterdays have lighted fools the way to dusty death
Out, out, brief candle! Life's but a walking shadow,
A poor player that strut's and fret's his hour upon the stage and is heard no more,
It is a tale told by an idiot, full of sound and fury, signifying nothing.

This.

Other areas in my life are good, which helps massively. I do find myself back at square one at times but I snap myself out of it. You have to dig deeper than you think to find the strength and determination to just keep going. If you keep going, and never give up, you cant be beaten and something good will come from it. Whether it takes a month, a year or decades. I wont ever give up, and my SA knows that and sometimes listens to me.
