Tripcodes are a way to identify yourself between posts without having to register with the site. To use a tripcode, enter your name as ‹name›#‹key›.You can choose anything you want as the key—it is private and will never be shown to other posters or stored on the server. For example:

Rarity#bestpony → Rarity!.4PK7yxdII

If you want a tripcode containing specific words, you can download a program designed to search for tripcodes, such as Tripcode Explorer.

Email?

Entering an e-mail is optional.

There are also code words you can enter here which perform certain actions when you submit your post.

  • sage — lets you post without bumping a thread.
  • nonoko — uses the original post behavior to redirect to the board index.

These can be used at the same time as an e-mail address by typing ‹email›#‹action›.

You can also use Skype names in place of an e-mail. The notation is the same as a link to a username on skype itself, which is skype:‹username›

Ask a Level 6 Anything Pony_PuristCountry code: blank.gif, country type: ponyflag, valid: 42095846

Also, what level are you?

I'm an absurdist with some Christian beliefs. So...level 5 I guess.

Also you could ask this in >>>/ef/
You might get a better discussion of this nature there.

Anyway, what's your specific philosophy? Taoism?

I went from Level -1 when I was a little kid, Christian, to to Level 2 when I was 15 and realized Christianity was a lie and God wasn't real. With a little more thought, by 18 I graduated to Level 3. I had an existential crisis at 19 as I entered Level 4, 5, and 6 kind of simultaneously. I used to like the idea of lots of different things, including existential absurdism, Wicca, Zen Buddhism, and Taoism, but I've ultimately settled down with Stoicism as my current philosophy.

How can any degree of knowledge, wisdom or enlightenment be claimed if every possible statement comes to be accepted as true or possibly true?

Some kind of Level 5 Egoist-Existentialist reporting in.

Good question. This is because at Level 5, you've come almost as far as you can go intellectually-speaking. Therefore, the philosophies that lie beyond Level 5 are going to be very personal and individual. While at first it may seem like you're going backwards as you enter Level 6, you will find that in spite of your apprehensions, you retain all the knowledge and truths that you have previously acquired - none of them are contradicted. Whereas Level 5 was all about consolidating the intellect, Level 6 is all about coming to realize the intellect directly in your life. At Level 6, all philosophical ideas are open to you, and you come to know yourself.

That feel when you realize you leveled up your character completely wrong but the game won't let you retcon.

Philosophy is like having street smarts imo. You pick it up as you go along.

Again...my opinion of course.

Surprisingly little, I'd say. He's not actually here very often.

It does suggest he is what he says he is.

Well, according to his previous posts, he developed into a stoic apparently.

As for me, I'm a level 5 absurdist. Life is as about malleable as clay in my opinion. I do know my limits though and I feel there is a higher power that probably created the clay in first place.

Imagine Art Clokey being God and a bunch of Gumbys being us. We can mold our perspective of reality, but that's about it really.

Life is absurd. Sometimes like a cartoon, sometimes like an anime, and sometimes like a stiff claymation, like I mentioned earlier. It's great. Really.

TBH I've been tempted to write down my thoughts on life, in a tome that hardly anyone would read, but which would still let my hot takes outlive me.

That would be cool, if only to read it yourself in a decade or so.

And hey, I could figure that whether anyone else's response would be to say "At last I truly see!" or to burst out in laughter, in such cases a little joy is added to the world either way.

Please - I am merely a humble highly-internet-educated philosopher. As to your following question - a lot, but the process has tested and shaped my beliefs about reality, and for that I am grateful to you all. I of course hope that you got something out of it as well.

You should be spewing that kind of spaghetti more often here, yaboob. The absence of this kinda thing is part of why we're a necropolis right now.

What if I agree with a little bit of everything from "1" to "6"?

Infinity is just a meme section.

This basically peaks at 5 and then drops at 6.
