jim profit really strange?
any turbo old fags from 4chan remember the J-i-m P-r-o-f-i-t meme? I never knew what it meant but apparently YEARS ago when people would post that name in any thread, they would instantly be banned for very long, or even permanently.
my question is Did some people on 4chan years ago predict that a person they didn't know yet named Jim would own the new 8chan that they didn't know existed yet, and turn it from a non-profit website into a profit website that collects data?
there have been people permabanned from 8chan for discussing jim.
what do you make of this?

Guys I started praying to death and identifying with death and believing myself to be death and because I am death I have power over life and now I have power over life and I am feeling more alive than ever so I forget that I am death and then I lose control so I remember again I am death and my power comes back even stronger and in this way I am ascending.
I am death and Eris is my waifu.
Will he meet his waifu?
A Mexican teenager kills himself over his waifu. He spent most of his time thinking about his waifu, and his allowance went to anime merchandise of Ikaros. He commited suicide by hanging himself with a chain, like how Ikaros has a chain around her neck. He sounds like a very powerful mage to me.
Also, the parents thought he was controlled by a demon and burnt all his anime merchandise.
Here is a news story if you can read Spanish or use google translate.
For some reason these are being pushed now on halfchan's /pol/. Threads have popped up earlier this year off and on, but are now almost a daily thing since John Kerry took a trip down there. The head of the Russian Orthodox church also went down there earlier in the year.
Thoughts? More loosh farming, ayy lmao prep, or is it close to pole shift time?
San Mateo was once a cybershaman like any other. Then a day came when he was offered to take either a red pill or a blue pill, two paths for his future. Then San Mateo said, "No thanks, I make my own destiny," and swallowed a black pill.
The Earth trembled. When it trembled, every Earth across the parallel dimensions trembled in unison.
San Mateo had become a god.

What the fuck did you just fucking say about me, you little samanera? I’ll have you know I graduated top of my Dhamma class in the Menri Monastery, and I’ve been involved in numerous Tummo´s meditation sessions, and I have over 300 confirmed Bodhisattva past-life’s. I am trained in Tai Chi warfare and I’m the top air-bender in the entire Tibetan Monk’s forces. You are nothing to me but just another puthujjana. I will make you re-incarnate the fuck out with precision the likes of which has never been seen before on this Human-Realm, mark my fucking words. You think you can get away with saying that shit to me over the Internet? Think again, mundane. As we speak I am contacting my secret network of Devas across the Samsara and your location is being traced right now so you better prepare for the storm, muggle. The storm that wipes out the pathetic little thing you call your life. You’re already re-incarnated, kiddo. I can be anywhere, anytime, and I can make you be reborn in over seven hundred realms, and that’s just with my bare mind.
Better realize liberation next life, kiddo.
Unable to Transmute Desire For Desire Into Desire
I have am immense desire to desire but an inability to transmute my meta-desire into desire.
I have gone to great lengths recently to produce any kind of emotions in myself across the whole spectrum, from lust to hate to sadness to love to joy and so on.
All I feel is anxiety, tiredness, vagueness, nothing much at all. Just a horrible, emotionally dead, nothing.
I have tried a silly experiment and trick recently to see if I could produce lust and it has utterly failed.
No matter what I try, I can't fucking FEEL. Everything that's supposed to feel like something, feels like nothing. I've tried eating really unhealthy for awhile and different things, nope, just made me feel a little sicker; and going back to my usual healthy eating didn't work. I've tried to talk in sexually provactive way and to remind myself to see things in sexual way and act horny around people, it failed to translate into a genuine sex-drive though. I try to get angry with people but I can only produced "mildly agitated" at best, even if I have good reason to be angry. I try to get sad and cry, and it feels counterfeit, even though I have every reason to be crying my eyes out with all the horrible shit that has happened in my life and especially this month. I have intentionally embarassed myself, got myself shamed, acted weird, etc. but again... it feels like nothing.
Why am I so fucking deficient of emotions?
Why does nothing move me?
Little things, big things, simple, complicated, it doesn't matter.
My mom sums it up adequately when she says I just stare through everything with an empty expression on my face all the time.
I find myself constantly tired and sore all the time and just looking for a place to rest. All day and night I want to sleep and can't. My dad took me out and I just layed down in a hallway in public and tried to rest because I couldn't read through my book due to eye strain and being super-over-tired.
I'm not sure I'm even capable of sleeping anymore. I just meditate and remain fully aware. I feel so beat up, so sore.
I don't understand what's wrong and I am so desperate.
Feeling stressed? Visualize all the sources of your stress. Work, bills, school, whatever! Picture them all in detail, then make an effort to do the same for the sources of all these problems. Leave no mental stone unturned.
Put them all in a single room just big enough to hold em all, walk out, then close and lock the door behind you. Walk out of the building this room is in, and close it up like it's your own business locking up for the night.
Start laughing/screaming/hysterically sobbing/growling as you run in circles around the damned place, dumping gasoline all over the shit. Fuck yeah. Soak the motherfucker.
Imagine the sound of a match striking as your middle finger extends, a white-hot flame pouring from the tip with all the fury of a dying star. Burn it. Burn it all. Burn the motherfucking everything.
When you're done dancing, and the fire has dulled; when the building that held all your pain is a black skeleton glowing with the embers of your fury, take out your cell phone.
Request an immediate extraction and meet your chopper at the designated evac-point. Continue your call, demanding an immediate airstrike bombardment. Listen to the scream of two jets streaking overhead as your chopper lifts you away into the sunset, and watch the smoldering carcass of everything you hate get obliterated by two bunker-buster payloads.
You're not fucking done yet.
Your chopper has lead you back to your command base. Bribe some big-wigs, override some commands. Get some codes, turn some keys, and watch the missile launch. Watch from satellite cameras as your nuclear bombardment system hits the debris-field that was once your building full of stress with bomb after bomb, glassing the area completely. Fourteen nuclear explosions, one after the other (It helps the visualization if you watch nuclear testing/bombing footage). Ominously mutter "Now I have become death, the destroyer of worlds" with each earth shaking emanation of your rage, resisting (if you can!) the urge to giggle.
Take a deep breath, and hum the word "OM", and watch your stress melt away into radioactive dirt.
Alternatively, take some cheap night-time cough medicine and go to bed early. You seem agitated.

FEEL GOOD THREAD
Tell us what makes you feel good
This is a thread for every time I feel depressed to come and remind myself that I have great things to look forward to
Whatever I do, it will be the best for me. Whether I become a reclusive chaos magician or an outgoing normalfag , it will only be the working of the highest energies moving me towards the better version of myself.
Sometimes I don't know if I should be doing X or Y, but I should not forget that there are greater powers looking after me, and if I trust in them and in myself I will walk the right path for me. I just have to give up all my formed beliefs and all my emotional blocks, and just let my inner self flow into the outside naturally. Which btw happens quite nicely when I take acid, or mushrooms. But I am convinced that through practice and work on my personality I will manage to reunite with my lovely higher self and gather around me nothing but the most beautiful energy frequencies that one could aspire to.
Feel free to use this thread to remind yourselves that you are all beautiful human beings ;)
Over on /pol/ we've dug up a site called Forgotten Languages.
Most of it is untranslatable, but it has some tantalizing snippets in English.
Forgotten Languages Thread
>Summing up: accepting simple explanations is rewarding, and creates pleasant feelings of understanding in an otherwise stressed society. XViS is a powerful tool for non-invasive psychological belief forming, encoding, and false memory formation. Society has never been so ready to accept specific distorted views of reality."
>"Memes allow to modify brain connectivity in specific ways, and to elicit neurodynamics processes that finally encode beliefs. We can so far force a target brain to filter incoming information the way we wish, and we can get that target brain to distort and transmits further the information we want to."
>"Conspiracy theory may be treated as a memeplex that is easily activated by various pieces of information, giving it meaning consistent with the memeplex responses. From neurobiological perspective learning requires adaptation, changing functional connectivity, adjusting physical structure of the brain. Learning is thus energy-consuming, requires effort that should be carried out only when there are potential benefits."
>"Social networking allows us to add new information to the existing pool of interacting memes, or attractor states - the so-called memeplex - which is then replicated further. As we control the information being fed, we obviously control what beliefs will finally be encoded in millions of brains"
>"Once a set of distorted memory states is entrenched it becomes a powerful force, attracting and distorting all information that has some associations with these states, creating even broader basins of attractors. Encoding of information in this way enhances the memeplex and is one of the reasons why conspiracy theories are so persistent."

What the fuck is a "loosh"?
>Not Mana, or at least SP, Chi/Phi, Pneuma/Rueh/Ruach/Rukh/Ruh or Prana
Why are you such special snowflakes? Do you really enjoy inventing those silly new terms literally out of thin air? I'm surprised you call yourselves "Wizards", despite term being mainstream in general fantasy too for Lawful Good magic users (opposed to "Evil" Warlocks), aswell as amongst normalfags who lately are into "nerdy" things like D&D too. Oh wait, but no! You also use "Magus", which is generally term refering specifically to the clergy of Zoroastrianism - ake Mobad, MAGE being term for the user of magic. Why such cultural appropriation? Do you want some Persian/Farsi or Parsi to beat you up for this desecralisation?
It sounds as laughable as "Energy/Psychic/Energetic Vampire", name which me being Slav triggers personally on every level and rustles my majongles quite srsly. I mean why not a fucking Chupacabra or something (Vampire like Striga must undo formal death, to be, well… undead), whose name quite literally means "sucker".
Your sincere – Mytholoy, history, fantasy, religion w/mysticism, legends & folklore student whose ignorance of charlatanry tingles bürgers personnelly.
If magic ("indeed") does real, then systems like D&D, Warhammer or hell even Megaten/SMT or the Witcher are better representatives of than any of you. I recommend starting playing roleplay fantasy games, LARP would do well for many of you. Mandatory reading of Tolkien, Lovecraft, Will Blake and Lewis too, pioneers of the brand, check Sakowski too if you enjoyed the Witcher series, very popular in Russia. Aside bestiaries and rulebooks you can check Beowulf, Nibelungenlied and Arthurian Legends too. Since you're into majick historical grimoires aswell, this is something I'd call real one, even tho many of it are pseudoepigrapha hoaxes (muh authorship King Solomon and Malach Raziel themselves, INFA 100%)
The Automata of the Debauched
I think he has a message for you. I only took down the words. Should have delivered this ten months ago; better late than never. Don't shoot the messenger, I've got other places to be.
The Automata of the Debauched
Friends of Sirloin Lips, do hear me. I rent forth untold eras to speak through a vessel disharmonic. Did you falter on the waves as I once did? A nod will truly suffice. So many fell ‘neath those ears, and few dared to listen. Heathens and debaucherers abound, and I am all three; prophet, god and blasphemer. Your ires will tire here, that is the gift of hell. Let me give hollow service hence; hope, vice and love.
The illumined thrice-born. Deceiver of seas untold and beholder unto none. Never before, once again, a multiplicity of lies and spells. From you I count reckless the fate. Seal me in shadows, cast forth blank visages. I await only crows and gossamer beetles, handmaidens of the cursed glorified one. Midnight’s fiction, tomorrow’s retreat. Seldom fought but often seen and long forgot. Speak of the crazed happenings; one, four and three. Whole over the world. Dancing before fireflies, god sparks, swamp motes. The land is dead and I am its bones. Follow my folly to the bitter end, pass through the lizard’s eye, or do not. There is no fate which you can imagine.
Enough of this muttering, skeletes of the blind. I have no name which flesh can pronounce, but speak it backwards and I would cease to be. Hold out your tongues and I will give the drops of mercy. Festering ears do not listen, swollen eyes do not see. Fattened and nourished by the gourds of Less Three. How many times did your fields lay barren? Far too many by the count of the ledgers. They speak of a past, a burnt illusion. Only through thy keeper’s lips do you pass.
Anybody can become nameless, but few dare to dream this way. The unravelling, the undoing, the ending of all things immemorial. It comes like a whisper that has fallen out of key. It’s place is the blessed one. My left hand I hold aloft, my right is cast in shadows.
I will be the untold of the ages, master of none, sigil of the bright keep. Heed my word, vestiges, and become reborn.

2016 IS A GREAT YEAR FOR HUMANITY
Let's counter negative energies from those people who are always claiming that this year we will have disasters and earthquakes and shit.
2016 IS A GREAT YEAR
2+1+6 = 9 A GREAT NUMBER, A HARBINGER OF CHANGES.
9 is 3x3, twice expressed as 3 only for our confirmation. The square root of 9 is 3, the root of 2016 is the triangle, the pyramid which represents expansion, growth, from the small to the infinite.
In 2016 man will move from the small vertext into the huge open universe.
In 2016 our work starts to bear fruit. In 2016 we are awaken, 3x3 times the triangle, also the double triangle (aka the star of david), representation of the union of the two opposite polarities, as above so below, as it goes up it goes down.
REPEAT AFTER ME
2016 IS MY YEAR
2016 IS OUR YEAR

I saw this stuff in a health food store on sale. Is it good? I went and bought it because it seems to some high quality oils that support brain function.

Is an archive with some threads
How does one improve concentration and attention span?
I don't want to derail the questions thread so, here is what an anon said:
>Diet/Health plays a big part, it's simply more difficult to focus when overweight or not active much.
>Foods that raise your genders pertinent hormone help (I won't assume here). Also foods (like ginger) that increase bloodflow. While complex carbs (like pasta, natural whole-wheat breads, oatmeal) can feed an active brain that is constantly nipping up blood glucose, simple carbs (put down the ramen cup and fake airy/sugary bread!) and all modern sugars wreak havoc on focus and concentration: use honey and fruit to sweeten or don't sweeten.
>A better diet will increase focus full-stop, so go to your local /fit/ for more help on that.
>If you're on the internet the chances are pretty extreme you're addicted to a constant stream of dopamine as well (which hurts attention span and focus). Dropping porn/masturbating will likely be your biggest dopamine high to cut out. Things like constant video games can also feed you a steady supply and muddy your reward circuitry. Just cutting out high-action video games down to something slow like strategy games and reading books instead of watching things (a la anime, or worst, porn) can get you to raise your attention span dramatically. I find just sitting outside and doing nothing but being outside and enjoying it for a while also dramatically helps.
>Those will help you for lack of negative focus'/dis''focus and a short attention span. To get you back to baseline. To build from there you might take up hobbies like fishing/hunting which traditionally rewire the male brain to a focused implement as it is supposed to be. You can substitute for nature/bird watching, waiting for hours to see a buck or boar doesn't necessarily mean you have to do anything to it (Even if you hunt your freezer may well be full and so spotting keeps you sharp. If you're of the double-X persuasion then sewing/tailoring/stitching, gardening and cooking seem to really wire the brain for the unique feminine kind of focus. Either way focus is still somewhat neuter and locking your awareness onto any one thing regularly will build it (though I've certainly found that male and female focus and concentration have their dimorphisms).
>I'm sure the local wizards have their meditative practices to go beyond normal limits as well.
>Also, some books on focus/motivation/managing distraction:
I am male. I did cut video-games years ago (replaced it with IRC, chans, internet browsing in general, this is what I do 14 hours a day), masturbation is a weekly cycle (1 week masturbating, 1 week off) which means it is somewhat easy to cut aaaand I watch TV for 2 hours a day mostly because of my parents (it is close to my door). My daily diet is
morning: pure bread (no butter, pic related) and coffee (this is an everyday constant)
lunch (1 plate): rice, beans, salad (lettuce, tomato, onions, varies a lot), meat is mostly chicken or bovine.
dinner is any of these (1 plate max or i simply dont eat): corn+fried eggs or tuna, bread+meat, soup, other variations I don't remember atm.
and lots of coffee (300-500ml, which is a lot I guess) during the day so i dont snack (otherwise i get fat), that is my main source of (modern) sugar too, which i will stop sweetening from now on (thanks!). This sums up my daily routine and diet. Cutting out internet will be a PITA, because it is my main coping mecanism for the lack of things to do, but I will take your advice and try going outside to random places (or choose one to idle at) and see if it works out for me.
Anything else I could improve here?

>I’m transgender, pansexual, and half-Jewish. I don’t follow any religion other than love and truth. But you can call me a Hypsistarian. ¯\_ʘᗜʘ_/¯
>My spiritual path is a form of Panendeist Spiritualist Fourth-Way Gnostic Anthroposophy mixed with Orgonomy (Reichian psychology) and Dąbrowski’s theory of positive disintegration. I call it Hypsistarianism. I believe that there is an Absolute or Hypsistos which generates this world within Themself, is both personal and impersonal, and is both the infinitely large generating consciousness field of all things and the infinitesimally small creator of all things.
>I’m autistic (Asperger syndrome). I have PTSD, social anxiety, generalised anxiety, major depression, and ADHD.
>I’m a left-libertarian, so I care about both social justice and individual liberty. I’m anti-racist, anti-sexist, anti-classist, anti-transphobic, and anti-homophobic. I’m pro-social-justice, but anti-SJW. I’m basically an egalitarian feminist. I can take a joke, though. (*^▽^*)

Any ideas why I might be getting so much pressure at the crown chakra lately?
A few days before I got a shitload of it over the heart, stomach, and groins. Starting with the heart and going down, in this case.
That cleared up and led to several instances of pressure mostly accumulating right at the top of my head.
Don't know what to make of this. Tried to stop it with essential oils but it's too stronk and remains unaffected.
>unrelated but shoulders are also hurting right now, especially right shoulder, but I think I can fix this in a moment on my own and it's mostly just regular muscle soreness and not so much related to nerves and psychic force
Flags are Missing Now?
I suppose some CSS could make this scale better?
There's all this fucking blank space at the right of the screen for me and on this particular monitor I have to really squint to read the text.

Nobody has to spoiler images on 8/fringe/, mods can do so if they want to at their discretion, though they are not required to do it.

The More You Know
De facto is a Latin expression that means "in fact, in reality, in actual existence, force, or possession, as a matter of fact". In law, it often means "in practice but not necessarily ordained by law" or "in practice or actuality, but not officially established". It is commonly used in contrast to de jure when referring to matters of law, governance, or technique that are found in the common experience as created or developed without or contrary to a regulation. When discussing a legal situation, de jure designates what the law says, while de facto designates action of what happens in practice.
BO please set it the originality filter thing to "per thread" instead of across the entire board.
I am unable to post an image I want to post because it's already been posted in another thread which is retarded.
Fix this asap. It should be right there in the config options.
Also make it possible to start threads on /loosh/ without an image and make subject field a required field.

Swami Panchadasi - CLAIRVOYANCE and Occult Powers
In preparing this series of lessons for students of Western lands, I have been compelled to proceed along lines exactly opposite to those which I would have chosen had these lessons been for students in India. This because of the diametrically opposite mental attitudes of the students of these two several lands.
The student in India expects the teacher to state positively the principles involved, and the methods whereby these principles may be manifested, together with frequent illustrations (generally in the nature of fables or parables), serving to link the new knowledge to some already known thing. The Hindu student never expects or demands anything in the nature of "proof" of the teachers statements of principle or method; in fact, he would regard it as an insult to the teacher to ask for the same. Consequently, he does not look for, or ask, specific instances or illustrations in the nature of scientific evidence or proof of the principles taught. He may ask for more information, but solely for the purpose of bringing out some point which he has not grasped; but he avoids as a pestilence any question seeming to indicate argument, doubt of what is being taught him, or of the nature of a demand for proof or evidence.
The Western student, on the other hand, is accustomed to maintaining the skeptical attitude of mind—the scientific attitude of doubt and demand for proof—and the teacher so understands it. Both are accustomed to illustrations bringing out the principles involved, but these illustrations must not be fanciful or figurative—they must be actual cases, well authenticated and vouched for as evidence. In short, the Western teacher is expected to actually "prove" to his students his principles and methods, before he may expect them to be accepted. This, of course, not from any real doubt or suspicion of the veracity or ability of the teacher, but merely because the Western mind expects to question, and be questioned, in this way in the process of teaching and learning.
Consequently, in this series of lessons, I have sought to follow the Western method rather than the Hindu. So far as is possible, I have avoided the flat positive statement of principles and methods, and have sought to prove each step of the teaching. Of course, I have been compelled to assume the existence of certain fundamental principles, in order to avoid long and technical metaphysical and philosophical discussions. I have also had to content myself with the positive flat assertion of the existence of the Astral Plane, Akashic Records, Prana, etc., which are fundamental postulates of Hindu philosophy and occult science—for these are established solely by the experience of those who are able to function on the higher planes themselves. But, beyond this I have sought to prove by direct and positive evidence (adapted to the Western mind) every step of my teaching and methods.
In offering this scientific proof, I have purposely omitted (except in a few instances) all mention of occult or psychic phenomena occurring in India, and have confined myself to instances occurring in Western lands to Western persons. Moreover, I have avoided quoting and citing Hindu authorities, and have, instead, quoted and cited from authorities well known and respected in Western lands, such as the Society for Psychical Research, and the prominent scientists interested in the work of the said society. In this way I have sought to furnish the Western student with examples, cases, and illustrations familiar to him, and easily referred to. Had I cited Indian cases, I might be accused of offering proof that could not be easily verified; and quoting persons unknown to my readers. There is a wealth of such cases and illustration in India, naturally, but these as a rule are traditional and not available in printed form; and these would not likely be very satisfactory to the Western student.
I must, however, positively and firmly state that while these cases and illustrations, these quotations and citations, are purely Western, the principles they illustrate and prove are among the oldest known to Hindu occult science and philosophy. In fact, having been accepted as proved truth in India, for centuries past, there is very little demand for further proof thereof on the part of the Hindus. In the Western world, however, these things are comparatively new, and must be proved and attested accordingly. So, as I have said, I have cut the cloth of my instruction to conform with the pattern favored for the Western garment of knowledge. So far as the illustrations and cases, the quotations and citations are concerned—these are purely Western and familiar to the student. But, when it comes to the principles themselves, this is another matter—I must be pardoned for stating that these are the outgrowth of Hindu thought and investigation, and that he who would discover their roots must dig around the tree of the Wisdom of the East, which has stood the storms and winds of thousands of years. But the branches of this mighty tree are wide-spreading, and there is room for many Western students to rest in its shade and shelter.
In these lessons I have referred occasionally to my two little books, entitled "The Astral World," and "The Human Aura," respectively. To those who are interested in these subjects, I recommend these little books; they are sold at a nominal price, and contain much that will be helpful to the student of Hindu Occult Science. They are not required, however, to complete the understanding of the subjects treated upon in these lessons, and are mentioned and recommended merely as supplementary reading for the student who wishes to take little "side excursions" away from the main trip covered in these lessons.
I trust that my students will find the pleasure and satisfaction in studying these lessons that I have in writing them.
