Just finished reading 1984 Anonymous 2021-08-04T17:10:05Z No. PFHK1ASH [Report]

Good book, if a tad too lengthy. From the references of it I normally see people making, I thought it would be more focused on "SURVEILLANCE BAD" and "STOP GROUP THINKING", but from what I saw it is more focused on the everyday living in a totalitarian regime, and how people cope with the restrictions and adapt. Part 1 was alright, took me a few days to read. Part 2 was so boring I almost gave up reading the book, I even took a break of several months from it, but then I took a large spoiler that O'Brien was a thought cop and that picked my interest again. Part 3 was by far the best, I started and finished it in 2 days (due to time constraints, I almost finished in 1), I found the whole process of his "reform" very interesting. I like how the book has a bad end (although I guess from his perspective it was a happy end?), I wish I knew more literature like that with a non-heroic protagonist, I am tired of the same old "...and then the good guy beats evil and gets the girl and lives happy ever after the end".

Ikkyu is a contender for top chad in philosophy, after Diogenes and gang. > gets enlightened > drink heavily > marry a 14 year old blind girl > they called him out for it > "nah, im enlightened, i can do anything" lol > He died from malaria when he was 87. His last words were “I don’t want to die”, which was totally unexpected from an enlightened monk, but it fits Ikkyū’s character.

Studying texts and stiff meditation can make you lose your Original Mind. A solitary tune by a fisherman, though, can be an invaluable treasure. Dusk rain on the river, the moon peeking in and out of the clouds; Elegant beyond words, he chants his songs night after night.

Drop what you're doing right now and start reading The World as Will and Idea volume 1. This book will turn your life around and tell you the TRUTH about what our world is and who you are. This volume 1 is 200 pages split across 4 chapters. > I The World as Idea The Idea Subordinated To The Principle Of Sufficient Reason: The Object Of Experience And Science. > II The World as Will The Objectification Of The Will. > III The World as Idea The Idea Independent Of The Principle Of Sufficient Reason: The Platonic Idea: The Object Of Art. > IV The World as Will The Assertion And Denial Of The Will To Live, When Self-Consciousness Has Been Attained.

>>LQ9O98JR It was one of the first few books and really enjoyed when I was younger, I've just kept going back to it every now and then. It's a pretty good book IMO, simple, but still good. Plus it has a decent amount of spinoffs from the ending of the story that are decent.
