PseudorealityA pseudoreality is a world that is perceived by the beings living in it as true, right, and unchangeable, but in reality is life´s worst enemy and doesn´t deserve to be true. Characteristic are totalitarian, non-negotiable natural laws, surpassing any despot in cruelty, but which are accepted and often even defended by the population. The environment and the inner human nature alike, are causing immeasurable suffering and limiting the possibilities, the psyche fabricates a feeling of meaning and hope, only to disappoint repeatedly.
In the striving, to master all the problems, people burden themselves with aditional rules, which often culminate in oppression. This article is dealing with the fallibility of nature. The resulting societal problems are a vast topic in itself, and will be discussed elsewhere: social criticism
Virtual realities, fantasy worlds and game scenarios, which are subject to rules and restrictions, but which you can voluntarily enter and exit at any time, do not count as pseudoreality. Here you consciously abstain from some of the possibilities to compete or to have a special experience under special circumstances. Losses in such a world are not final and life threatening. On the contrary, play and imagination are the actual reality, because they offer more possibilities, are diverse and changeable and, above all, because not every fart means doom. If games have negative effects, such as addiction, then the fault lies not in the game, but in the parameters of the frame world in which the game is played. The pseudoreality is designed to make good things like dreams, games, imagination seem useless and inferior to the morbid "seriousness of life".

About the term reality
With reality we commonly refer to the physical world in contrast to virtual worlds and fantasies. This definition is acceptable, as long as it serves as unbiased designation to distinguish forms of existence. But it´s problematic, when the term is used to declare the "real life" the only true and right one and to discount everything idle and intellectual as useless visionariness, when it´s used to justify deficiencies of the physical world just because of their alleged immutability and to disparage critique and idealism. My personal connotations with the term are:
The body is a disability
One major reason, why life is bad, is because it´s bound to a flesh host. Am I an ascetic preacher who condemns the sinful flesh? No, on the contrary, I want unbounded expression of all lusts, including the physical. And to do that, the body is in the way. Consciousness arises from the mind, so you could simulate physicality without all the dangers and disadvantages. You should not be tied to a body, to a single, unalterable, fragile, for constant attention crying one, which is restricting you and telling you how to be and what to do in order to to grant you the happiness hormones. Our behavior and body functions eventually serve just a pointless self and species preservation, never we get asked, whether we agree to the dictated goals and conditions. We shouldn´t serve life, but life should serve us. In the following, we eludicate, how the body restricts our freedom and happiness.
- food consumption
Life support of a body is usually based on mutual exploitation. In order to get vital nutrients, other lifeforms must be killed and eaten. The dead body parts are devoured and digested with unappetizing juices to abominably stinking toxic waste. The food chain and eating hierarchies are a fundamental part of nature. The casualties are already calculated in the numbers of the offspring. Most living creatures are too dumb, to see through this perverted system. Humans have to struggle with conflicts of interest between hunger and morality. This leads to emotional repression, blunting and indifference, or to auto-aggression and militant tree huggers.
Special food can be delicious, but the daily ingestion is annoying, the procurement and preparation requires disproportionate effort. Toiled all day and in half an hour everything is eaten. Additionally, nature meticulously dictates how to feed, to avoid dieseases galore, so it is impossible to eat properly without measuring and analyzing every morsel.
A biological body is an unequaled polluter. Sweat and rancid fat oozes from all pores, dead meat exfoliates, in each body opening you find another stinking, slimy waste pit. One is trapped in a piece of rotting flesh, a petri dish for microorganisms, pests and pathogens of all kinds, which involve one in an endless struggle against the all penetrating filth. Bacteria populate every nanometer, shitting onto you, and you are even dependent of this vermin. You are decaying alive and have to do a sisyphean task to scrub off the dirt every day. And not just yourself, the whole world is a sewer that keeps producing dirt that covers everything.
Sexist is nature, which divides sentient beings into genders in the first place. Neither can you choose your body, nor your sexual orientation and you are trapped in it for life. Too easily, you are cursed with the wrong body, ugliness or preferences, which can be satisfied not at all, or only by harming others. It is foreseeable, that mutual lack of understanding, sexism, sexual violence and prudish morality can easily develop here. Lust and love could be so beautiful if they were not just the instruments of vile reproduction, which, because of its central biological importance, takes itself far too seriously. The great drama of pregnancy, birth and the immense responsibility for the offspring overshadows pleasure with stigmata and complications. Feelings of love, romance and lust are only reproduction-enhancing mechanisms, their magic is an illusion. Evolutionary and societal optimizing pressure leads to completely exaggerated demands and bickering. In addition, there is the danger of venereal diseases, which fuels fears on all sides. So it becomes an unenjoyable, hysterical farce. But the sex drive overwhelms every reason. People sacrifice their lifes and their dignity to the reproduction and raising of brats, unmindful of their wellbeing, and they feel important, competent and morally superior with that. More and more generations have to endure this vale of tears.
Intelligence is tolerated by the body only as far as it is useful for the preservation of the species. Those who can build tools, think one step ahead of their enemies, have a survival advantage. But the ability to think is also accompanied by the reflection on one's own existence, the desire for meaning and fulfillment in life, for something that is greater than just crawling over this earth, eating and multiplying until you die. And as scientific knowledge progresses, one becomes aware that one's own mind is imprisoned in the skull, written on a fragile mass of slime that can percieve reality only as an unreliable interpretation of limited senses, that one is a slave to his genes, instincts and imprints, and that one can never truly understand other beings and the world as long as you are in that prison of flesh. Most people take the yoke of nature as given and do not plague their minds with such pondering, or they seek their salvation in dubious spiritual explanations, religions and philosophies.
Who doesn´t know this, you just sat down comfortably, then you remember something to do, or something drops. Telekinesis doesn´t work, so you have to stand up again, leave your for the actual activity adjusted posture, to wrench and bend yourself, to inconveniently go somewhere just to do a minor matter. You also stumble against everything, you are too small, too big, too light, too heavy, moving on your own is slow and cumbersome, why you are dependent of complicated, expensive and pollutive vehicles. Communication doesn´t happen through direct thought transmission, but has to be phrased in words, which is time-consuming and imprecise, regularly leading to misunderstandings and annoyance. These are all small issues, but they add up. But one big Issue is the helplessness of such a weak body in the face of the overwhelming injustice of the world, that leaves so many people behind in desparation.
The brain craves for constant entertainment, because in prehistoric times this made sense, when there were only the classic sources of pleasure such as eating, sex, etc., and these had to be worked hard for, so there was little risk of overdose. The same nature that has set this up, also has allowed us to develop a brain that can invent sources of pleasure that are much more easily accessible. But habituation comes quickly, we want more and more and always new and then we have to macerate and mortify ourselves to protect us from the evil temptations that deviate from the natural path of happiness. The satisfaction of preprogrammed addictions, such as social interaction, however, is thwarted by our own brain, since it irreversibly mutates into an antisocial cripple from the slightest miscalibration during childhood.
Already with puberty, the decay begins. You completely pointlessly start to stink and grow lackluster, frizzy bristles everywhere, which reinforce the stench because of the surface enlargement. The skin becomes dull, limp and patchy. The few who are not born as unsightly freaks, soon become disproportionate clumps of meat with disfigured grimaces. One is plagued with defects and with each incoherent occasion, the brain cells commit collective suicide. Intelligence and the joy of life expire, the initially new and exciting world becomes a habit, which robs us of enthusiasm. Curiosity and the urge for freedom turn into routine and worn down thought patterns. Most adults lose all their dreams and deny anything childlike, but don´t become mature or wise either. Youth is withering quickly, most of your life you are a senile, shrunken mummy.
Whether it's little ailments that permanently pester you, or terrible strokes of fate that ruin your life - all diseases are hideous enemies whose existence has to be totally exterminated. There are infectious dieseases, because dumb nature invented parasites. There are diseases, which are based on unforgivable construction deficiencies, or because the body always deconstructs everything, without thinking, whether it makes sense in the long term. Besides the glorious self healing power, it is often overlooked, that there is also a self destruct power. Things like stress or loneliness are damaging the body, too. You don´t have enough worries yet, so of course one problem must spread to many other areas. (for further reading: Top 10 dumbest diseases )
Pain is supposedly a warning signal. Very useful, if you are put out of action by your own alarm system, convulsing on the ground and unable to do anything about it. Positive sensations quickly lose their appeal, they can even turn into the opposite when overdone, but pain remains, even if one dies anyway, the siren howls on uselessly. And there is even pain, when you are not sick, e.g. the infamous menstrual cramps. How pitiful is life!
Fortunately, you don´t have to live forever in this fucking world, but dying in its present manner is a cruel extermination of loved ones by the callous nature, whose heartless logic created the contradiction of self-preservation instinct and mortality with cynical contempt for our feelings. Instead of gently dissolving into air, the end has of course to be as undignified and unaesthetic as possible. There are 2 basic ways of dying: Either you wait in plaguing uncertainty, until you get carried away by disease and decay or you help with violence. Besides sorrow and agony, you will also bother your bereaved with your ugly, filthy carcass, which must expensively be disposed of as hazardous waste, while your personal valuables are desecrated by philistines and vultures.
The evil dominates
It's not, that everything is bad in the pseudoreality, otherwise life wouln´t be possible. There are good and bad things in the world, but the world itself is bad, because the bad dominates. This spoils good things, because they don´t exist on their own terms and stay good forever, but are only a shape made of perishable materials.
- unjust causality
Unhappiness is the default setting, that is always present without any action, to which everything goes by itself. Happiness is something, that must be worked out and therefore can break again. In a just world, good deeds should lead to good results, bad deeds to bad results, and if you do nothing, nothing should happen. But in pseudoreality, there is no clearly defined good and evil. What is useful to one person, is harmful to the other. With every step, that seems good at first glance, you have to keep in mind: What are the side effects? Is someone else suffering from the benefit I gain? Is the positive effect only short-term and harmful in the long run? And do not forget: No good deed goes unpunished. If you look closely, almost nothing can be achieved without risks and sacrifices. And if you do nothing, don´t think everything remains as it is. Friendships must be maintained, houses must be maintained, freedom must be defended. You have to drudge to build things, then you have to drudge to keep them. You always have to work for your well-being, but for the bad, you just have to sit back.
- unjust propability
Usually, there are only one or few ways, to make something right, but countless ways, to make it wrong. Since doing nothing is mostly harmful, and you can only do a limited amount of things, the propability to cause harm is infinitely bigger, than to cause good, independently of whether the things you do are good or bad, simply because of the fact, that there is always an infinte number of things, you don´t do. Additionally, you have to expect the worst possible reaction of your fellows, regardless of the factual outcome of your deeds. They will slam even good intentions and sabotage everything.
- Evanescence has always the last word
In the beginning of a life, the world appears full of possibilities. Carelessly, we nest in this world and invest emotions in its fleeting things, that then get wrested from um without mercy. we get the chance to build something, only to fall even deeper. Positive and negative things are equally transient. However, evanescence is rather associated with the fading of good things, because no one grieves for bad things. When we compare joy and pain, we don´t compare the general occurence, but we think of a specific positive event and compare its receipt, which is temporary, with its loss, which is eternal and irreversible. The future is uncertain, except for death. Ther is no guarantee to find love, but a guarantee, that loved ones will die. Love and Hope tie us to life, but the fear of loss prevents us from enjoying life relaxedly. We are far more busy, pondering about dangers and fighting problems, because these have far greater impact, than good things. They always say, you have to get over tragedies and carry on. This would make sense, if there was something to win at the end. But you only put off the evil hour, you have to overcome neverending obstacles and to look back to more and more lost things. In the end wins always destruction and oblivion.
- fragile psyche
It is said,that happiness is largely determined by one's own thinking. It is also said, that the first years of life are the most imprinting. Therefore, the external influences, which are actually less responsible, have their greatest effect at the time, when a human being is most vulnerable to them, in which one has not yet built up a solid world view in order to defend themselves against harmful influences. No rose-tinted glasses, no self-deceptive mantras to sugarcoat your life, even the smallest of the bad role models strike you uncheckedly and ruin your life permanently. Parenting is a tightrope walk, you can only do it wrong. If one is too strict, the brood depraves, if one is too lax, it also depraves. The psyche absorbs negativity like a sponge, every flaw burns irrevocably into the subconscious. Destroying is easy, repairing is nearly impossible. To procreatre under these circumstances is a reprehensible act.
- the brake of progress
The lifespan of people is limited. Once a generation has learned from its mistakes, it goes extinct and the new one has to learn everything from the start. While organized gathering and sharing of knowledge enables some progress, experience can not be taught. The further the misdeeds of the elderly date back, the more unreal they appear, the easier the mistakes are misjudged and committed again. In addition, the everyday struggle for survival lets the latest scientific findings take a backseat. The quick buck seems more urgent, the barely wheezing status quo safer, than to worry about fundamental changes that make life better in the long run. Thus the progress is long drawn out and a few backward fanatics or natural disasters are enough to throw everything back to the Stone Age.
- the lie of the balance
Pushing something out of balance is a bad thing. But if the balance is a middle way, it should not just be able to fall in one direction, you could tilt it in the direction of positivity. But that does not work. Tipping is always bad, only the balance is good. But balance can´t be good by definition, because it is balancing good and bad. So if the balance is the best possible way, 50% positivity is the maximum, and that is just the impropable ideal state, most of the time it's out of balance. Although theoretically more than 50% positivity can be reached, you have to have a guilty conscience because in the end the equation has to work and the negative surplus is shifted on to somewhere else.
- no escape from subjugation
Who always accepts the unfair rules of life and makes the best of it, is a servile opportunist, who is only thriving, because he adapts to the ruling order. But who has the backbone, despite all senselessness, to question the laws of nature and to rebel against adaptation, has to accuse himself of succumbing to his pride and convenience, instead of doing something for his happiness. What we perceive as our self, is nothing but a compliant minion of our subconsciousness, which eventually just serves self and species preservation and bypasses or overwrites our personality at a pinch. But as long as the psychological srain isn´t stron enough, it remains in its dreadlocked thought patterns. we are imprisoned in a body, ruled by a program, exposed to an uncontrollable world. Our waking consciousness is degraded to a passive observer, who underlies the delusion, to be the ruler of himself.
- coercion leads to more coercion
Since natural constraints such as mental isolation and limited resources lead to greed, envy, and lack of understanding, some folks come up with the crazy idea to oppress people and impose a panacea for wealth and happiness onto them. This lifts greed, envy and lack of understanding from the personal level to a societal dimension. Personal problems you can theoretically solve on your own, but if the madness is nationalized, the shit has hit the fan. Nature itself is sad enough, but then you are additionally opressed by things like economy, politics and religion. The natural laws don´t know human rights. They five violence its tempting power, which bad people embrace. The world agrees wit the evil.
the personality dictate
In your head, there is a little judge. If you dare to neglect the way of life prescribed by nature, he punishes you through disease, unhappiness, depression and increased mortality. On the other hand, if you behave well and do exactly what you have been designed to do, then he rewards you with a candy full of happiness hormones. The judge can be bribed temporarily, but only to pay back manyfold afterwards. If you want to obtain your fortune through deviant activities and substances, he will punish you with addictions and all their consequences. The required personality is also nothing else but pre-installed, incurable addictions.
- physical training
You do enjoy the conveniences of civilization? Guilty! You are an animal, designed for life in the wild. Evolution does not keep up with technological progress. You must sacrifice your time to fidget, you must toil physically and take an eye on your diet, otherwise you will get fat, sick and weak. And of course lack of physical health also affects psychical health.
- mental challenges
You like to relax and don´t want to keep stressing your brain for your mental fitness? Guilty! You have to scourge your synapses, you have to trudge out of your comfort zone, otherwise you'll be punished with stupidity and demotivation, your already built up synapses will be taken from you, making it increasingly difficult for you to do anything.
You are introverted, pssimistic or have any quirks? Guilty! They say, you should be authentic, but only as long as your authenticity coincidentally matches that of a sociable optimist, who knows to put himself on the market, otherwise you will find no friends, no job, no sex partners and you are doomed.
- social contacts
You are a loner and think you don´t need friends? Guilty! Even if you hate people, nature doesn´t grant you to become happy alone. It has condemned you to be a social being. This is even worse than the other dictates, because it is dependent on unreliable other people. Even if you are willing, the others are antisocial and will reject you, if you don´t meet the requirements. The feeling of being misunderstood will drive you even more into isolation.
You have a pronounced sense for aesthetics? Guilty! Nature puts you and others into flawed bodies, and you must uncritically accept, what is thrown at you. Since nobody has chosen their physical appearence, a fine taste is automatically a discrimination against everyone, who is ugly, and you are co-rasponsible to promota a morbid beauty cult. So, be satisfied with mediocrity.
You don´t have trust in the world? Guilty! Wether there is a basis for trust at all, the world don´t gives a shit. The socalled basic trust is simply expected. This term already sounds like brainless naivety, running blindly into your perdition. But without it, you will be punished with desperation, depression and increased risk of dementia. If you have trust, the world will do anything but stop to anguish you, which leads us to our next point:
You are sensitive and no born fighter? Guilty! You must be hardboiled and blunted. Who doesn´t stand up again, repeating the same mistake over and over again and build upon the life, that takes everything from you in the end anyway, is called effete and will be left behind without mercy. But who praises resilience as a virtue, only speaks for a tyranny, which means to impose affirmation through violence.
- standing on one´s own feet
You are well sheltered and live happily in Hotel Mum? Guilty! You will be punished with dependency and learned helplessness and your parents will be reproached for their good intentions. Life will tear you out of your safe home without mercy and rob you of all your loved ones. It forces you to learn all the annoying crap to survive the wilderness.
Even if you meet all the requirements, that is not enough for nature. You also have to be grateful for it and deem it right. Act as if everything is sunshine and roses, what life is selling you at extortionate prices and idealize the dark sides into "opportunities" that the oh-so-benign nature grants you to grow on! If you use your alleged freedom of thought and think too much about negative things, then the judge will make those thoughts your prison cell and self fulfilling prophecies. Nature will do nothing of its own to save you from this condition. It will continue to destroy you unless you choose to acknowledge the dictate and struggle your way back under unimaginable torments of self-denial.
The 2 principles of psychology
The human psyche cam be boiled down to two basic principles, which always turn against oneself:
- Self is the fool
The first rule says, that the blame is always on your side. Even if not, you must carry the can for it. Nature will never bother to admit a mistake and always shift the responsibility upon you. If you suffer from something, it´s always because of your negative thinking, never because of the obvious depravity of the world. The flaws of the others are only your own projected weaknesses. And if your psychical problems are indeed the others´ fault, you must still work off everything yourself. Then, you must accept, forgive, get over it, always you have to betray yourself and to adapt to the world.
- Always the Opposite
The second rule says, that the truth is always the opposite of your convictions and to overcome your shortcomings, you have to do, what you precisely want to do least. If you hate or fear something, you must expose yourself to it. If you are lethargic, you have to be active above all. If you are idealistic, you will get disappointed and have to accept the opposing side. As soon, as a wish becomes fulfilled, you are unsatisfied and want something else. Also, if you want to help someone with mental issues, the logically obvious actions are always just wrong and make it even worse. Negative personalities gat the advice to seek the presence of positive people, while positive personalities get the advide to avoid negative people.
The environmental disaster
Initially, life has been forced into a merciless fight for survival, that fuels ruthless progress, then suddenly, the world breaks under overpopulation, scarcity of resources, pollution, climate change and species extinction, and evolution says: "Oops, that wasn´t planned." Then we only have the choice, to suppress our drive for development, or to let us be executed by the broken world. The world is a bad design, that can only end in disaster. Precisely the things, which make life a bit more bearable, like food abundance, motorized travelling, water and electricity supply, fast internet, the diverse uses of plastic, all that gets slammed. Nature doesn´t deign us to make our lifes more rich, pleasant and colorful.
The evil is pointless and illegitimate
<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<< There are several attempts to justify the evil in the world. No matter what excuses one invents for the necessity of evil, they are circular reasoning based on the logic of the same laws of nature that cause evil. Wether badness is real or imagined, evitable or inevitable, just or unjust, absolute or relative, doesn´t matter. The perception of evil exists in the form of suffering and this contradicts the will of every sentient being.
- Dualism In a world based on competition, joy serves motivation, pain serves avoiding dangers. The wear-out effect of unlimited joy is only a warning of the danger, to neglect other actions of self-preservation. This circumstance damages the reputation of joy. It is said, that suffering was an unavoidable part of life and necessary to feel joy, the highs and lows would make life interesting in the first place. This is shortsighted nonsense. Firstly, the total abolition of suffering would include the suffering from too much joy or too less variety. Secondly, I don´t talk just about stimulating frictions and challenges with a second chance. Hate and war faciliating brains, deadly diseases and catastrophes benefit nobody. How many crimes are forgivable? Why are different standards applied to nature and mass murderers?
- creator of own reality Disciples of this theory claim, that our negative thoughts and evaluations would make the world appear so bad, we should kindly see everything positive. If the only way to change this circumstance is to change our mind in order to make the change in circumstances obsolete, it is highly doubtful that we are the creators of our reality. The fact that reality doesn´t change immediately according to our wishes, shows that our creative power is subject to some restrictions. If these constraints really do not come from the outside world, but are in the interest of an unconscious higher self, the problem would only be shifted by one link in the causal chain. What reason would the higher self have to torment its incarnation if it were free to decide and there was no external need for it?
- achievement principle This disgusting idea says, everything has its price and good things have to be earned. Read unjust causality.
The 4 stages to overcome the evil
Just warned against this, I now present the panacea for all problems. Of course it will not work, because this wouldn´t be the pseudoreality if hope appeared realistic.
- recognizing the evil
All badness is based on coercion. Coercions arise when different interests meet and hinder each other. While the evil in our imagination can appear in a personalized form separated from the good, in pseudoreality everything is interlocked. It can´t be actually destroyed, only tideously kept small. This way the extortionate laws of nature shall force us to accept this condition and to sit out our wretched life. Anyone who submits to causality seems to be able to live happily. But that's just a phoney peace. We want to achieve happiness beyond blind loyalty.
- fighting the evil
Imagination is the path to freedom. Dreams, playing, art and hobbies are poison for the bad "reality". To do this, we imagine a fantasy world that meets all our desires and merge with it. The orgasmic shockwave will exorcise the demons. Now evil is isolated and can be destroyed with a clean conscience. For this we use their own means against them: "Misfortunes never come singly". Everything bad causes a domino effect, a long bloody trail of permanent damage that we track back and reverse. This suffer-mirror-curse allows the suffering to flow back to the causer, who experiences everything bad he has ever caused first-hand. Every fear, every physical and psychological pain, every mourning of the relatives, the anger and despair of all affected people, all in the full extent of the life of each victim. He will become aware of how hated he is by the whole universe, how wrong and useless his existence is. This kills the demon immediately, but it feels like an eternity to him. Since we kill no person here, but the extracted coercion, the revenge is truly fulfilling.
- ignoring the evil
Ignoring does not mean accepting the suffering. Suffering is to be despised with every fibre of our existence and deserves not the slightest concession. But while at Stage 2 we had still to sacrifice too much time and energy to eliminate this nefarious entity, we now move on to passive annihilation. We no longer pay any attention to the enemy and pursue our lusts undisturbedly. The power of imagination will build up a shield around us that protects us from any persecution. No pathogen, no unwanted creature, no weapon can penetrate it. It can also be activated a refraction of light, which makes us invisible or hides all attackers. So we do not feel disturbed anymore. The intelligent force field expands over things that are important to us. This way our friends and our property are protected. If we are eager to commit a "crime," let's just do it. The time line will be split, so that both of them, perpetrators and victim are equally happy. The damage is outsourced to an extra dimension. Then the bad guys can toil in vain and die of their anger that all their efforts are futile, that they are worthless shit which no one cares about anymore.
- escaping the evil
On the last stage, we no longer have to bother with this inadequate world at all. The imagination forms a so-called armored cloud. This is an indestructible dimensional field in which our imagination becomes reality. Our personal universe, with which we become one and experience infinite joy. We float as a self-contained cycle, independent of any external influences through the framework. "Reality" bothers us only as a voluntary amusement. We enlightened ones can visit each other and experience adventures, while the evil suffocates lonely and forgotten in itself.
