To reprogram oneself

2 years, 1 month ago

Hai, HEartlings. This is actually my first thread, anyway…
I recently heard that upon reaching the age of 25 the mental schemes (in every aspect of life I guess) kind of consolidate and it is really hard to actually change them afterwards.
So, in the 4 years I have ahead of me before I get there, I would really like to explore a wider range of… well… systems of thought, so to say. This in order to have some versatility and such.
So the question is, how does one actually do this? to entirely reprogram oneself, and not just once but a few times.
Don’t get me wrong, it is not like I don’t like the way I think. I just think I am too young to be fitting myself within set standards which will only slow me down in my purposes.
(lol at my deployment of pretended eloquence)

It is not so much as to reprogram oneself, but to extend thought and perception. Thought shifts in exponential ways, so two thoughts will emerge from one, and four from those two. It is to not accept, but consider everything. One’s wisdom is measured in proportion of one’s awareness of one’s ignorance, think less of the faults and perceptions of others and consider the possibilities you once never thought possible.

argue with people
go thrill seeking and get pumped with adrenaline
attend lectures with intelligent people (philosophers and such)
use this website more
make fun of women and hurt them, they will reveal your deepest insecurities and fuck with who you are!
travel far
be confident about new experiences
dont discriminate, try everything

Check out alan watts` “Out of your mind: the nature of consciousness” audio lecture series.
After listening, and understanding, you will not have this problem in your later years. Enjoy!

I can’t really formulate anything worthwhile besides that whatever program you are seeking to follow is very likely pre programmed if you listen to where your mind needs to take you. I don’t think there is a set formulation that will have the same expanding properties that will fit everyone. Things like dealing with a shitty job or getting mugged can reprogram someone more than loads of forced or planned experiences, in my opinion. One could feel he needs to bungee jump while on lsd, another feels the need to fall off the grid and lock themselves up in their room for a month, another needs to backpack around the world to shake their head up…
