I just want to make a quick note about the advice – such frequent on here – not to subvocalize when reading. It is literally the only way you have to train and develop your sense of rhythm, so not doing it is very bad, other than unnatural. This is all. Goodbye.

>> No.16643405

>>16643366
Not a bad argument. The truth is probably than one has to know when to do it and when not to do it. It's essential for poetry but absolutely not for non-fiction for instance (unless you wanna study rhetorics maybe, but poetry will do the trick better).

>Described as a "pessimistic freethinker", Al-Maʿarri was a controversial rationalist of his time, citing reason as the chief source of truth. He was pessimistic about life describing himself as "a double prisoner" of blindness and isolation. In an epigram he mentions a third prison, his soul being confined to his body. He attacked the dogmas of religion and rejected Islam. He was equally sarcastic towards the religions of Jews, Christians and Zoroastrians. He advocated social justice, and lived a secluded, ascetic lifestyle. He was a strict vegetarian, writing "do not desire as food the flesh of slaughtered animals."[2] Al-Maʿarri held an anti-natalist view, in line with his general pessimism, suggesting that children should not be born to spare them of the pains of life.[3]

Post-ironic shitpost reply know as "The Epistle of Forgiveness"
>Known as “one of the most complex and unusual texts in Arabic literature” (Banipal Magazine), The Epistle of Forgiveness is the lengthy reply by the prolific Syrian poet and prose writer, Abu l-'Ala' al-Ma'arri (d. 449 H/1057 AD), to a letter by an obscure grammarian, Ibn al-Qari. With biting irony, The Epistle of Forgiveness mocks Ibn al-Qari’s hypocrisy and sycophancy by imagining he has died and arrived with some difficulty in Heaven, where he meets famous poets and philologists from the past. In al-Maarri’s imaginative telling, Ibn al-Qari also glimpses Hell and converses with the Devil and various heretics.

What literature to read if I want to at minimum get an idea of what having a good character entails?

Lately I have come to dislike people who get very emotional and let their emotions override their judgement, physiologically I know what is happening, the amygdala is sending a signal to the rest of the brain that the person is in danger, so the brain pumps out adrenaline and cortisol, HR accelerates, you begin sweating, and your emotions take hold. Unless your frontal lobes are powerful enough to catch this and recognize the reaction for what it is, then you have control over your emotions. This is why people who practice meditation always feel more grounded, because their frontal lobes get more robust.

My problem is not that I´m annoyed that people are overly emotional, it´s like being annoyed at people who are born deaf, or blind. I´m not annoyed at them, I´m annoyed because I see myself in them and fear becoming like it.

So I spend some time going back and forth in my own mind about actions I took, to figure out if what I did was correct or if I had a lapse in judgement. BUT. I have no role models, I don´t know if a good character and morals are set in stone, I suspect they are, but if they are where can I read about them? I´m going on a buying spree, I have some Seneca books and Aurelius, but that is about it. What do you recommend?
