Cyberpunk is dystopian, you are not supposed to want to live in its world. I don't think you have to reject cyberpunk to reject the "cyberpunk reality", as many of the cyberpunk works reject it too, or at least heavily criticise it. People usually overemphasize the aesthetics (the "cyber") elements of it and downplay the critical (the "punk") parts of it, but you don't have to follow it. Cyberpunk does not have to be about neon signs and synthwave.
i understand that now that i have matured, that does not change the reality we live in though only my perspective of it, the point of this thread is not bash cyberpunk works but to discuss how to (mentally) survive in the current reality without becoming entrapped into it
u just gotta man up and exert your will over it
what does "positive nihilism" means?
That video really is something. Galactic empires and video games? While conveniently forgetting that a third of our lives, half of the hours spent awaken, is sacrificed on the altars of Economy…
From the comments:>Optimistic nihilism is basically like a Minecraft world. There’s no point of it, but you have so much stuff to learn and do.
I love how Minecraft has become a frame of reference for real life now. I went walking in the countryside with my friends once and one of them said, while we were walking across a field, that the sheep sounded just like they do in Minecraft…
Technically everything its cope this seems like a healthy one tbh.
I agree with OP point if thats how he views life, better than being an addict or self harming and other destructive coping mechanisms
