    [–] New evidence found on UFOs over Ireland The_Telltale_Fart 1 points ago in UFOs

    Lol you never heard of meteor showers? This seems like nothing. Like whatever it is it's hurtling towards the ground. This is such a reach.

    [–] Toy Story 4 - Official Teaser The_Telltale_Fart 11 points ago in movies

    They are the exception to pixar's sequels. Most of their movie's sequels have been only ok imo. IMO!

    [–] Toy Story 4 - Official Teaser The_Telltale_Fart 34 points ago in movies

    I don't think they did. I remember everyone being stoked for 2 and 3. This feels pointless.

    [–] My culture has been appropriated The_Telltale_Fart 13 points ago in Tinder

    That girl with the chinese dress had steel balls to go up against the thousands of twitterati and not only be vindicated but showed the sheer ridiculousness of the attacks on her.

    [–] My culture has been appropriated The_Telltale_Fart 12 points ago in Tinder

    This is actually an amazing insight. White girl culture is defined by faux outrage, hashtag campaigns and pumpkin spice lattes....oh and those instagram pictures of sunsets overlaid with a "deep" quote that ironically reveals her inability to take responsibility in her life.

    [–] The CEO of Starbucks technically runs one of the worlds largest drug empires The_Telltale_Fart 1 points ago in Showerthoughts

    This is totally anecdotal but ever since I gave up drinking and started regularly exercising, my daily cup of coffee leaves me feeling fantastic.

    [–] Wisdom From The Dalai Lama 🙏 The_Telltale_Fart 3 points ago in Buddhism

    They were influenced by all kinds of belief systems. They were trying to draw a parallel between them. The world of illusion could also be said to be samsara and the agents representing suffering in the mind. Then the programs represent various gods from a higher realm (mavhine city). When Neo is carried away at the end of revolutions we see him appear as a golden lotus flower which simultaneously appears as an angel. It's a message of West meets East.

    [–] Wisdom From The Dalai Lama 🙏 The_Telltale_Fart 26 points ago in Buddhism

    He just unintentionally described The Matrix trilogy which itself was deeply influenced by Buddhism. The machines are the corrupted human spirit incarnate, keeping man asleep in a world of delusion and ignorance. Alienated from his true nature, man indulges in illusion and creates suffering. One must wake up into the real world and reconcile the physical realm, mental realm and spiritual to achieve peace.

    [–] I think I just know why/how agent Smith is destroyed(?) in the end. The_Telltale_Fart 1 points ago in matrix

    One thing I realize as well is that because neo lays down his life and chooses to die/be deleted, he by proxy makes that choice for Smith. Programs can't just be deleted, Smith rebellled against his programming and deletion the first time. They have to choose deletion when they go to the Source. So when Smith becomes Neo/Smith, he takes on Neo's choice and the two choose deletion together.

    [–] This Batman cosplay looks better than movie props The_Telltale_Fart 0 points ago in batman

    yeah except Nolan ruined it by making it into Alien eyes Batman instead of anything that looked remotely comic book like. I'm not a fan of the TDK cowl at all and so adding that made him look super weird and offputting to me.

    [–] Anyone else sick of housemates? The_Telltale_Fart 0 points ago in ireland

    Exactly. This post reeks of "why can't I have my way". Like, you chose this place, you live with your choice. Someone else wants to live how they're comfortable with, who the fuck is he to say it's wrong. The whole rant is arrogant af and I can't imagine he'd be happy living with anyone. Maybe the gf sensed that.

    [–] Enlightenments, Not Enlightenment The_Telltale_Fart 2 points ago in Buddhism

    I'm pretty sure he meant what he meant. He was asked directly about it if I recall correctly.

    [–] Enlightenments, Not Enlightenment The_Telltale_Fart 6 points ago * (lasted edited 23 days ago) in Buddhism

    But am I mistaken or is enlightenment not necessarily buddhahood? As in you can be awakened but not a fully awakened one. It seems like that was what the lady at beginning was really trying to ask: is buddhahood a myth. I recall the Dalai Llama saying he's never met a Buddha.

    [–] I lost my editing job for making JBP memes on YouTube The_Telltale_Fart 3 points ago in JordanPeterson

    It was definitely lapped up at least when I looked at it. This is not a brigade either, this was on the popular tab so I checked it out as I assume most others did who aren't subscribed here. Now that I read it again I can see it's actually baiting people so it strikes me as obviously at least exaggerated.

    [–] What is something many people find sexy, but you don’t? The_Telltale_Fart 5 points ago in AskReddit

    No it isn't you just misunderstood the concept along with 99% of people and I'm tired of defending it. The pods and humans DON'T provide the energy. They are used as spark plugs for the nuclear fusion reactors that are the actual towers themselves, which in turn power the Matrix and the machines.

    "Combined with a form of fusion, the machines would have more energy than they'd ever need."

    [–] I have really bad knees that make it hard to sit up in an upright position without being distracted by pain, but when I lie down I get sleepy. The_Telltale_Fart 1 points ago in Meditation

    I occasionally use my zafu, put it on my chair and sit on it's edge so that even though I'm sitting, my back is upright and supporting itself and my hips are above my knees. Works pretty well.

    [–] I lost my editing job for making JBP memes on YouTube The_Telltale_Fart 256 points ago in JordanPeterson

    There's something going on here. There was a fake post from this sub that hit the front page a few days ago too that was lapped up by everyone.

    I immediately felt something was off about this and I think it's the same story.

    OP: try writing better dialogue in the future. You can't write women. Practice screenwriting if you're gonna troll people and incite hatred against your awful cartoon version of SJWs. The niece wasn't at all believable. Too whiny and stereotypical. The female co-worker going all out for you and happens to be a fan of Peterson too....nah this whole post reeks. You paint yourself as flawless and brave and everyone against you is the big bad villain. Every co worker loves you, you're talented and suuuuch an editing superstar.

    I'm laughing out loud right now cos its dawning on me how ridiculous this post is. Either you worked at some sort of South Parkesque alternate reality of a company or you're a out and out liar trying to manipulate people. I'm going with the latter.

    [–] Wachowskis closing down production company premises due to "no new projects scheduled". The_Telltale_Fart -1 points ago in movies

    I forgot to say that the major point of seeing the golden machine code is that we're being shown the "ghost in the machine". The machines have a soul is the point. They're not just dead eyed machinery. As shown by the Indian family, they even love each other.

    Neo's not connecting with machinery parts per se, he's communicating with a higher consciousness, a godlike mind that exists in all machines: The Source. It doesn't act like Wi-Fi, it's more saying that humans can reach a higher state of being through a journey of the mind and that is what the machines have achieved in their evolution: transcendence.

    Granted I accept that it goes past logical grounded explanation but it's a spiritual journey for neo more than anything. This is why we see a lotus flower symbol when he's taken away: he's reached Enlightement of mind in the Source.

    [–] Wachowskis closing down production company premises due to "no new projects scheduled". The_Telltale_Fart 5 points ago in movies

    Here's how that works. It's not wifi really, he enters the architects room and has his "consciousness altered". Why? Because hell need to protect the new people freed from the matrix from the machines.

    But instead he rejects that offer but still has been transformed mentally. How can he communicate with machines? Machines are a higher consciousness, they're a metaphor for spirit or soul. Neo has attained a higher consciousness because of the Source/architect and can feel and see the Source in the machines. That is,he can connect with a transcendent hivemind that operates on a level above human consciousness. This is done because he has machinery implanted in his brain that would allow it but also because the Oracle ensured his mind would be transformed by his profound journey of awareness and the architect's dilemma.

    Anyways food for thought.
