Life is suffering.

The cause of suffering is desire.

To free yourself from suffering, control your desires.

To control your desires, follow the eightfold path.

It's still absurd, though, as not all suffering stems from desire, and life isn't only suffering.

That is true OP, I have heard the quote "desire is the root of all suffering". If you had no care, not even for your own pain. Would you feel much misery at all? Sadly were just human, physical pain can destroy us. You can enter states of that purity through meditation though or in tastes of it through psychedelics.

>"desire is the root of all suffering"
Who are you quoting?

In all seriousness, though, that straight up isn't true. If someone were to, I dunno, punch you in the gut right now, that'd be suffering for you - or if not for you, for most people - but not because of any desire of your own, simply because you just got punched in the gut and that's a painful experience.

Not only that, having no desires at all could in itself lead to misery, as it would cause intense boredom and stagnation.

Thirdly, pain can't destroy a person on its own, as it is psychological and does no lethal damage in and of itself.

Apathy isn't a virtue. Not caring about things just makes your life empty and lonely.

no philosophy other than hedonism makes sense. everyone lives by hedonism, everyone is only seeking to maximize their pleasure in the long run. hedonism doesn't only mean party 24/7 do drugs all the time.

This may surprise you, but not everyone is a psychopath.

>> No.10548848

Those aren't philosophies of motivation, though. Indeed, other than the first, those aren't even philosophy, and are more along the lines of personal aims as opposed to universal truths.
Further, what, under your ideas, determines rightness? What about the concept of the utopia? Those aren't the basis of a morality. Hedonism is.

>> No.10548871

How is "be rightful" not a moral command? Granted, taken along with the next command it is immediately complex to the point of practical subjectivity; but it's still along the same lines as "Do not make false statements" and "Right mindfulness". The real difference is that, instead of giving a certain axis of morality, it simply states that such a thing exists; that's what the Nietzschean Ubermensch represents.

Thankfully, the label "improper" is extremely vague. Loli/shota & oral sex are perfectly fine.

>> No.10548898

Oral sex is my favorite sex.

>> No.10548913

Though "be rightful" is a moral command (which I don't think I ever said it wasn't), there is nothing in that list to define the rightness. Things like right and wrong are meaningless unless one has a means to define them, which is sorely lacking. "Right mindfulness" falls under the same category; the rightness is subjective. Contesting an ethical philosophical stance with a list which contains no ethical philosophies doesn't work as an argument against the first idea, in this case hedonism being the only logical philosophy; without the defining of a moral stance the concept of rightfulness becomes meaningless.
The idea of not making a "false statement" is objective (assuming we agree that truth and reality are themselves objective), and so that line is in a different category to the other two.

It's right there at the end, that's what the Nietzschean Ubermensch represents. It's one of the core concepts of his philosophy of the post-scarcity world; http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/%C3%9Cbermensch#.C3.9Cbermensch_as_a_goal

>Zarathustra presents the Übermensch as the creator of new values
>they must be motivated by a love of this world and of life
Love of life is a very broad and vague concept. It gives some obvious morals, such as that killing is wrong, but when it comes to the finer points it isn't clear at all. Is it better to prolong life as long as possible, at the cost of quality of life? Is having life at all the optimal state of any being? That stance, while nice to say, doesn't stand up to examination. To create a moral system, one needs more focus and clarity than "life is great, yaaaay".

>> No.10548990

To add to this, as I feel it is rather disconnected from my previous arguments; as "love of the world and of life" doesn't work as a practical ethical standpoint, again, the idea of rightness falls into meaninglessness, thereby again causing that list of ideas to be sorely lacking in moral definition.

Also, sorry for forgetting to sage so much.
