How many of you read books or other stuff for fun?
Not many people do but it's okay, you are lucky to have an entire world awaiting you! There is almost unlimited amounts of information in books that can totally change your life! Entire life times of information are available to you in text form, just take a dip one day into a book! Take a topic you like and find a book on it! I can almost guarantee your mind will feel things like never before once you get into a book!
I personally enjoy reading about ontology ( Ontology is the philosophical study of being. More broadly, it studies concepts that directly relate to being, in particular becoming, existence, reality, as well as the basic categories of being and their relations. ). One thing I'm reading right now is "The Origin of Consciousness in the Breakdown of the Bicameral Mind" by Julian Jaynes. It breaks down the origin and reasons for having a consciousness (you know, the whole thing you are experiencing right now xd). It's been blowing my mind with it's ideas and opinions. If you want a digital copy of it to check out I can send it to you on discord! I'm also reading a book called "How to Fail at Almost Everything and Still Win Big" by Scott Adams (creator of the Dilbert comics) in which he talks about his struggles and techniques for making it in life. It's basically a self help book but not so much, the writer has a dark tone when it comes to "self help". Check it out or I can send you a digital copy! Another book I'm reading is "Black Rednecks and White Liberals" by Thomas Sowell. It breaks down where stereotypes come from and why race relations are the way they are. Did you know the reason the South in the US is so different is because when the British was sending people over here to colonize less educated and poor people came from a shitty part of their country. It's said that the entire Civil War might not of happened had more educated and well of people colonized the South from overseas. Let me know if you want a copy!
I'm reading so much more than listed here but I also read the bible, tanakh, quran, and study spiritual texts and philosophies such as Zen and Buddhism along with the 3 other popular faiths. I also read psychology and sociology.
I typically read on a Paperwhite Kindle. This thing is a god send, the text is so easy to read like a real book and I can just download any book I want usually for free. It's great.
Let me know if you have any questions or want a suggestion for a first time book!
