    What Are You Doing to Become Invincible?

    Good morning, afternoon, and evening brothers,

    I have a question for you all. What are you doing to become invincible? By this I mean, what constructive activity (big or small) are you participating in to make yourself better?

    I've been doing a lot of reflecting lately. Then all of a sudden, lightning hit my head like a flash. I had an epiphany in part because I was reading "How I Found Freedom in an Unfree World". (It's a good read and I highly recommend it.) I realized that my freedom does not have to rely on cultural shifts of the masses. I can just choose to be free.

    There are always things that you can do no matter what where you can better yourself. For example, if you are at a job with some downtime, instead of talking about mundane conversations with coworkers, get yourself a mini calisthenics workout. Build yourself to be better than you were the last day. Cut out any sort of thing that can negatively set you back. This mindset does not rely on anyone else's permission. You are the most important thing in the world.

    What I have done on my journey to become invincible is realize that I can't change other people. I am not responsible for other people's world view and their views do not affect me. I will do what I want to do no matter what. Another thing I have been working towards is practicing living within one's means or "loose minimalism". I will splurge once in a while but the majority of my money is spent buying my freedom. Having cheap hobbies to be content and happy is a must for this to work. Finally, I have been using my employer's time to better myself. I'll just leave it at that.

    So I am curious as to what are the constructive things you guys are doing to better yourselves. I would contend that a healthy amount of stoicism is good for most men. There is a lot of negativity to focus on in this world. What good does it do for you to focus on the negative. Focus on the positive things you can do for yourself and forget the things you can't change.

    I'm doing harvest which involves, ripening, boiling, canning, cooking and freezing, I use commercial equipment as my setup has improved year after year. I grow my own fruits and veggies, pound my own nails, and turn my own wrenches as well as maintain my own road and land all around me I squatted and laid claim for the above mentioned activity.

    I carved myself a new asshole in the map of Massachusetts! It needed one with all the shit they try to give you!

    Re: What Are You Doing to Become Invincible?

    I was thinking something similar the other day. About investing in future freedom, but with some additional pessimism :

    1. I assumed that world will be in terrible condition, which means you cannot assume to have millions in your bank or pocket and be able to use that in any other country. Basically, assigning huge uncertainty value to material investments, mostly because as an individual, you will have limited capability to defend anything, as sociopolitical conditions of all the countries are a mess.

    2. I assumed that it will be an era of machines and AI, which means manual/mundane labor will have even lower returns than they have now.

    So what can you invest in ? Land is out of the question, so is gold, cash, precious metals etc. Even crypto is out, in (very) hard times, people will not be technically proficient or even interested in any of that. You will have to convert that into money, which will lead you back to square one. Even if there are machines and AI all over the place, crypto requires existence of a stable network. Even in today's world its volatile as fuck, and I know several people who hesitate in trading crypto for something real. I just assume this hesitation will only go up. Correct me if anybody finds something wrong with this line of thought (but please do note that I am deliberately assuming very bad).

    I live in a country with extreme corruption. If you think California is bad, you need to live few years here. One direct impact of corruption is on the availability of technical skills : engineers, doctors, programmers, etc. This happens because corruption creeps into education and then there is no incentive for students to bother with honing their skills and just focus on gaming the system to stack degrees and certificates and other such gimmicks. This results in doctors who know jack shit, this results in engineers who only know how to get superficial job done, this results in programmers who churn out one bug ridden software after another.

    And that is what I think is the best investment : skills. There are basic skills which you should know how to survive, eg cooking, plumbing, electrical wiring, basic medicine and first aid. I'll put hunting and fishing here too. Then some additional things like physical fitness, or better yet, combine it with combat training (and/or arms training if you have access to them). Of course, not everyone in every part of the world have access to these, its better to learn as many of them as possible within the regular schedule.

    Then on top of that, some technical skill. You can be a good doctor, a good machinist, a good programmer, anything of that sort. There will be scarcity of all these, and you can be a real asset to any group of people you are living with. Which means, you can negotiate better deals. Example, the pirates paid double to carpenters and doctors aboard the ship !! And pirate life was HARD.
    Unless stated otherwise, I am NOT presenting my preferences.

    Preferences can be views, thoughts, opinions, philosophies, morals, values, ideology, imaginations, fantasies, fictions, god, soul, spirit...

    I am using scientific method, its an algorithmic computation, designed to give highest efficiency and chance to win in a conflict, at a very high cost of mental discomfort of not adhering to preferences and spending time and energy on the computation.

    I think that skills is one of the best investments. If you really think about it, no one can take that away from you. Money can be stolen from you, land can be seized but skills can't be stolen nor seized. The great thing now is that learning a new skill requires no money. There is so much free knowledge around that you can learn anything you want.

    Yes !! But that is also a downside to skills. Nobody can take them from you, but nobody can give them to you either. Money, land, gold etc can be given, but not skill. Skills require deliberate investment.

    Yes there is so much free knowledge out there, but again, that also brings a disadvantage. It means you need to be a lot smarter to properly sift through all the sources, to figure out the one which is good. Often without the help of any teacher. I am a programmer, and I know there are lots of "learn coding in X days" tutorials out there, which are pure bullshit and deceive the gullible into wasting their time and energy.

    Yeah things right now are definitely looking bleak. That being said, you have some skills that many others do not. You have something of value that can't be taken from you. That is a positive!

    One other downside to the onslaught of constant information is that there is potential to get sidetracked all the time. It requires a lot of focus to sift through the noise and stay the course.

    Re: What Are You Doing to Become Invincible?

    I had to start this thread to put my thoughts out there currently. I'm tired of always thinking that there is nothing that can be done. There are always things you can do to better yourself amidst the chaos that surrounds you. A government puts a restriction on something but then by doing, provides 3 more alternatives to circumvent said restriction. There will be no scenario where I rely on others for my personal freedom. Thinking like this gives me a sense of hope because no matter what happens, I will do what I want regardless. It is unwise to be the victim and I won't do it.

    There are some things that can be done to mitigate this. I personally follow one strategy in my field. I know traditional programming, but not the emerging AI based programming (thats its own damn field). So this is something I am doing these days almost exclusively.

    My strategy is to not be the first, but to be fast. That is, when things arrive in media/market, there is a lot of hype. I let the hype subside down. When hype is gone, the trash crowd moves on to next big thing (crypto/blockchain in this case). And this is when, if I planned to learn this skill, I jump in, find the resources and get down to work.

    Lately I'm into fitness, eating healthy. So far I've lost 3 pounds in the past week.

    I'm researching around the net for business ideas to invest in. I want to buy up health supplements cheap and resell them for profit. I can't find the right wholesale site to invest in. I found Europa Sports Products and Muscle Foods USA, but their prices are about what I was going to sell on eBay, because that's what they're going for. Can't make a profit that way.

    I'm also investing half my money into buying a house in the future. I also daydream of having an arcade and pinball collection in the basement man cave with a beer bar and vending machines. Speaking of man caves, I like to buy or collect small things to add my already existing man caves: beer tin signs, movie/gaming posters, neon lights and 4K set up.
    It's a man's world and we need to take it by the throat and make it give us what we desire.

    There is nothing wrong with trying to learn something new. That's the only way we grow. The problem arises when we let all these new things sidetrack us from our goals. In the realm of physical fitness, there are always new methodologies coming out but that doesn't mean they should replace what you are doing. If your training methodology works better than the new stuff, ignore the new stuff. My point is, don't get sidetracked.

    No no, I meant different thing. From new I meant, new in market. When AI, deep learning and python were making daily news in programming ecosystem, there were people making tutorials daily, explaining this concept or that in a very haphazard, half assed, random things held together with a tape, sort of thing. At that time I knew I will need to learn this as this is a new thing for me (in the sense you put it), but I didnt start at that time.

    I waited a lil bit. Now the hype has died down, the "trendy people" are bored of this, and have moved to crypto blockchain. Which means, those who are still in AI, are dedicated people. The needles self sifted themselves, because most of the haystack went away. Now its much easier to find good resources, compared to few years ago.

    The downside is, when you finish learning a skill this way, there are already competent people in the market, so you cannot aim to make a quick buck by making false but sexy promises to capital investors and then making a snake oil vaporware product. You need to become actually competent. I like it this way. I like doing things properly.

    Re: What Are You Doing to Become Invincible?

    For me it's actually not that hard. I realised that "power" only works if both "parties" fall for it. I realised nothing and nobody has got any "power" over me. No matter how much they try: camera's, censorship, uniforms with shiny medals, guns a.s.o. the only one who has got any power over me, is me. I'm always free to do whatever the hell I want. That also implies I'm 100% responsible for the consequences of those actions. By thinking ahead about the consequences of my actions, I'm free not to do them.
    F.e. if I want to start my car and drive around the city like a maniac, I'm perfectly able to do so. The cop can them arrest me, take my car/ license and throw me in jail. But he/ she (for that matter) doesn't have any power over me regarding the starting and racing part.
    Another example: if you put a gun to my head and order me to crawl over the floor. I'll start crawling. But that's not because you want me to do so. It's because I don't want that bullet.
    In both, of course bizarre, examples I have complete power over my own actions. If I'd be scared of that cop or that bullet, that's my own choice for believing the cop and you have got any power over me. It's only when I fall for that mind trick when power works.

    To determine if power worked or not, you need to see actual change in state too. State can be state of the world, or immediate situation. Everyone can affect their environment by their actions, changing in the state. The change can be beneficial or can be harmful. If I am thirsty and drink a glass of water, the state changed from me being thirsty to me being not thirsty. That is a change in my favor.

    But if water is not available ?! Then I will have to induce other changes to eventually arrive at the change of my thirst quenching. One example, I go search for water, or I buy the water.

    But changes can be unfavorable too, and power comes into play when a particular change is favorable to one entity and unfavorable to another. Lets take your gun and car example. You point a gun at my head and ask me to give up my car to you. Me giving car to you, is an unfavorable change for me, but favorable for you. The problem is, assuming simplicity of the situation (no police, no law, no knife, no somebody else, nothing), then I actually have only two choices, and BOTH are unfavorable. I can either accept the change of state of my car's ownership, or I will have to go with the change of state of my life.

    So I can rewrite the title of the thread as : "What is your strategy to minimize the effect and/or probability of unfavorable changes in your personal state ?"

    Amazing reply! Thanks for that. I think this is an excellent question. For me the answer is to let go of suffering. With my realization regarding power I also realized nobody but me can make me suffer. Also nobody but me can hurt me. With "suffering" I mean the story in your head saying "I shouldn't suffer." If f.e. you punch me in the face, you'd damage my body and I experience pain. IMO that's not suffering. The suffering comes when I feel sorry for myself, my inner voice telling "this pain will never go away and you should kill that MF!" First: that pain will go away. Between now and my death. And extremely likely sooner than my death. Second: killing you won't make the physical pain go away.

    How did I do that? By furthermore realizing the trias which causes me to make myself suffer. "Don't resist, don't attach and don't judge." In your example of stealing my car with your gun I can make the choice of suffering "oh! He shouldn't have taken my car! Now I'm the most sorry creature in the world. Boohooohooo" Or I can realize I would have lost that car anyway in my life. Either by selling it, wrecking it or someone else stealing it. Now does that mean I'm Jesus and turn my other cheek to everyone and let everyone take advantage of me? No I'm not. Within my "trias" I immediately accept the fact you're pointing your gun to me. I refuse to go suffering and panic "oh! He will kill me, now I'm so pitiful!" I also won't judge "He's an asshole for stealing my car!!!" That's also suffering. And like I said: I wasn't attached to my car in the first place. By doing so, I'll keep a clear mind on how to handle this unfavorable situation. And observe if I can find a window of opportunity to overpower you with minimal risk. In which I won't hesitate to kill you if I'm been given the chance. Or of I don't see that, just accept I'll lose my car. But walk away from it unharmed. Which would be my most likely scenario. I.o.w. with not resisting/ suffering during the situation I won't make it worse than it already is.

    And last bu not least: regarding not attaching: that situation will also end. By either you killing me, me killing you or you driving away with my car. In all possible results any suffering I might have had will end anyway. The most profound words I've learned regarding this comes from Tolle. "this too shall pass." I'm referring a lot to him. Spiritual awakening is my first biggest life revelation. The red pill my second.

    Yes, this is the result of applying your method. You did not let fear cloud your mind, which will allow you to (hopefully) figure out some plan, to induce the changes which result in your favor, which I (in that car stealing scenario), might not have imagined you'd do.

    And not just that, your lack of attachment will do the same, not in that scenario but after that. It will stop suffering from clouding your mind, in figuring your way out of future unfavorable situations.

    If I understood you correctly, you are talking about courage/wits (during bad event) and stoicism (after bad event). But there is one more thing which can add to all that, and that is preparation (before potential bad events). And this is, as far as I understand, is kindda less straightforward. Because preparation has a cost. The more you prepare for bad events, the less optimal your utilization of good events will be (aka opportunity costs).

    Some of us here are preparing by digging the trenches, others preparing to run. And then some are just relying on courage and stoicism for the most part. All of that can work, depending upon where we are and what we face. I am myself somewhere between "preparing to run" and "wits/courage + stoicism". Not digging the trenches though, dont have second amendment where I live...
    Unless stated otherwise, I am NOT presenting my preferences.

    Preferences can be views, thoughts, opinions, philosophies, morals, values, ideology, imaginations, fantasies, fictions, god, soul, spirit...

    Re: What Are You Doing to Become Invincible?

    No brother. I'm not talking about courage. But I am talking about wits. To actually use my brain for what it's been designed to do: to solve problems. And not to let it been taken over by emotions. Of course I won't be in full "zen" when you point a gun to my head. I'll have fear for my survival. Which is a basic instinct. But in that situation I'll "detach" myself from that fear and let it "be on it's own." And use my mind to influence the situation to get the best result possible. I already know that'd be you driving away with my car and me walking.

    Regarding preparing? Yeah I've seen a lot of debates in the manosphere about an imminent collapse of "society." Clown world is getting more and more insane every day. With their 'feminism' BS but also those totally retarded BS regarding gender. Gender has got a number. Which is 2. Male or female. Everything else is sexual preference. In which there are neigh infinite possibilities. I see men prepping to run and live elsewhere. Or stacking stocks to last them for years. Buying weapons to fight WWIII. A.s.o. My take on that? I'm not saying anyone is wrong or right. What I can say is I'm trying to root myself as much as possible in the present. The future is unknown. And has endless possibilities and outcomes. Personally I don't see much point in all those prepping activities. Suppose a collapse will happen. Then what? Where are you going to run to and how? In your semivan like TFM is proposing? Who is going to stop the "barbarians" from just shooting you in your car while on the run? Stashing food/ supplies for years? Same question regarding those barbarians. Run away and live from the nature? Meh. That's very hard to do and nature won't be able to sustain us very long anyway. We are already wasting our resources like morons. And I don't want to live in the wild at all. Yes I might get killed by staying. But I've made peace with death a long time ago. Because I will die. You too. Does that mean I won't do anything when shit is going to turn bad? I don't know. It all depends on the situation. When the first wave of Covid19 hysteria broke out, I told my wife that we are going to purchase canned food and water which will last us 2 months. Just in case the nut jobs lock us up in our houses completely. That way we were sure we could survive for those 2 months. And it'd be food we'd eventually eat anyway. Now with the 3rd hysteria wave is looming I won't do no such thing.
    "But what about the weapons?! Won't you need them?" Again: how would they help me? If an insane horde is attacking me I might shoot about a dozen of them. But by the time I'd have to reload, the other 300 already are tearing me to pieces. In that scenario I would run away and let them ransack my house. Because it's not me they're after but my stuff. Live to fight another day.
    Last but not least: should there be a new 3rd Reich coming and is aiming at destroying my race I'd make a run for it and leave my country to go live somewhere else. But I don't see that as highly likely. I think I do know the agenda behind feminism. Which is IMO depopulation. We are with way to many too sustain on this world. Destroying/ killing people doesn't work on the long run. They tried that with WWI and II but the population quickly recovered. With disrupting the fabric of humanity and driving a wedge trough the sexes I think that's way more effective. I see you're from India. IMO that's the reason why India seems to be one of the most cucked countries in the world. It's population is frightening high.

    Who is going to stop the "barbarians" from just shooting you in your car while on the run? Stashing food/ supplies for years? Same question regarding those barbarians.

    You brought many good points, some of those I myself have stressed at several places, not just on these forums but also irl talking to people. When I talk about collapse for some realistic preparation, I often mean something a collapse, which is slow enough that it cant be called sudden and fast enough that it becomes very hard to impossible to continue with regular life. The classic example from current times is some form of vaccine mandate by the government which makes it impossible for me to do something which is absolutely essential, like buying food or using medical services.

    That will be quite an emergency for me but not so much for society, because here almost everyone either got vaxxed, about to get it soon, or will get it if government starts to apply pressure. But this is just one example, there can be other such scenarios which only effect a small percentage of society.

    And from preparation, there is also a spectrum. On one hand you can go for some crazy underground nuclear-proof bunker complex (lol !), but on the other hand it can mean just what you said. A basic idea in the head about what to do. That alone can matter a lot, it's so much better than getting caught with pants down. And often this is the only feasible thing you can do, because like you said, there are so many possibilities, its not feasible to prepare for each and every of them before hand.

    Regarding barbarians stealing your stuff, that is exactly what I was addressing in my first post in this very thread. The best thing that can be invested in is something that cannot be separated from you. But there is more than that. The question I like to put is, imagine you are indeed running in a chaotic world, and find a tribe, or a group, who asks you this question : "Why should we give shelter to you ?". For a person who is planning to run, that is a very important question. Because if you dont have any answer to that, then you depend entirely on your luck and the presence of some semblance of law and order (at that place where you ran to), so the police protect you from any random bunch of hooligans simply killing you and take your stuff.

    This also ties in to having weapons. Because its not just about having weapons, its also about the training and ability to use them properly and maintain them. If you can do that, then you have one additional answer to above question : "I can fight !". THAT... is a very good answer in a chaotic world !

    Regarding depopulation, from what I can conclude from the information I have, the elites/globalists of the world dont have much choice. Either they can let the things go on as usual and face the chaotic depopulation by Malthusian limit (too many people to sustain) OR they can do a more "managed" decline, where they choose which people go away. They may follow a slow and gradual method, like feminism and gender stuff, or they can follow a very fast method, like Chinese government releasing flood waters from their reservoirs in the middle of night without warning or anything.

    About India, yeah, the people here are RIDICULOUSLY cucked !!! Fortunately, I dont have to put up with those people. The situation I am currently in, all the people I have to interact with regularly, range from purple to red pilled. I dont need to ghost to them. They know my strategy. They know about mgtow very well. They may not fully agree to it or understand it, but they have no problems with me.

    The detachment thing you talk of, its the same I follow. But I follow it all the time. Which means there is me, and then there is everything else (entropy). By default that "everything else" will kill me. If I dont find food, I'll die. If I do stupid random things, I get into an accident and I die. But within that "everything else" lies certain rules (like laws of physics, laws of human nature, etc) which I can manipulate to fix unavoidable situations. And even better than fixing it is avoiding it. But, as we both agree, its a hard problem. You basically solve two problems, one is the actual problem, and the other is problem of figuring out the likely incoming problem(s). Anticipating problems and avoiding is a strategy I have followed in my life and it has worked very well (yet, I am 34 years old). I dodged the bullet of women and romance using the same strategy. I dodged the bullet of useless education, debt and unemployment by using the same strategy. Hopefully it will work for the rest of my life, who knows !
    Unless stated otherwise, I am NOT presenting my preferences.

    Preferences can be views, thoughts, opinions, philosophies, morals, values, ideology, imaginations, fantasies, fictions, god, soul, spirit...

    I am using scientific method, its an algorithmic computation, designed to give highest efficiency and chance to win in a conflict, at a very high cost of mental discomfort of not adhering to preferences and spending time and energy on the computation.
