I have been thinking about the soul for a long time, and I would like to share what I think.

By now, it might not be a secret to anyone that nowadays society feels empty, flavorless, and soulless. Look at social media, don't you think people act more out of inertia than will, consuming whatever without stopping, hoping to find joy without asking themselves what they truly like? Following dreams imposed by society and not questioning what their true dreams and aspirations are? Holding on to anything that promises to improve their lives without questioning what they truly need to do?

On the topic of souls, I can't help but think of the NPC Wojak meme. It is said that NPCs lack imagination. I came across a video showing a Reddit post where people mentioned they couldn't imagine or dream, their minds were blank. This surprises me a lot because I am the complete opposite.

Since childhood, I always had imagination to the point that it's hard for me to control. I would delve into a world inside my head, create stories of all kinds, build worlds with their own lore, have imaginary friends, talk to them, and even had imaginary girlfriends. I even kept a diary where I noted down things I imagined because I wanted to channel the excess imagination. I dreamed of being some kind of artist, like making animations or using digital media to create video games and be a programmer. Sometimes I wonder how NPCs can't imagine anything, as I can't do it for more than a few minutes because keeping the mind blank is so uncomfortable that it becomes unbearable for me. Are they born meditating or what? I would stop because my mind would impose fears and insecurities on me. I was scolded for being distracted in the real world, told to 'come back to earth.' Distraction problems led me to feel bad for having the paracosms I created. I learned to live between both worlds, the real and the imaginary (in fact, I was diagnosed with level 1 autism, and excess imagination is a symptom of it). Despite the problems, trying to channel my imagination through art and computer science was the best thing I could do in my life. I come from a tough time when I felt so bad that I wanted to harm myself and even considered suicide. After the help of a loving family and friends, along with a storytelling workshop on my campus, I managed to be happy again. Not only for overcoming my problems and moving forward as if it were personal development but also for leaving behind the oPost too long. Click here to view the full text.

Support Cyberpunk Bridge Sanctuaries


In the clandestine realm of cyberpunk dissent, cyberpunks harbor a subtle disdain for the reader, a living testament to an analog past amidst a neon-lit rebellion for digital dominance. Navigating the technologically charged landscape with outdated devices, the reader unwittingly becomes a symbol of resistance against seamless integration into the cybernetic zeitgeist. Yet, supporting the cyberpunks remains a compelling choice. Beneath the surface of their scorn lies a shared yearning for a more equitable and inclusive digital future. Embracing their cause means aligning with a collective push against socio-economic disparities exacerbated by advanced technology. It's an invitation for the reader to bridge the gap between analog and digital, recognizing that, despite the disdain, mutual support could spark a harmonious coexistence between the remnants of the past and the aspirations of the digital revolution.


Support cyberpunks in their quest for a more equitable digital future, and consider donating to Cyberpunk Bridge Sanctuaries now to create safe spaces for those navigating the challenging intersection of analog and digital worlds.

I read this piece recently https://lainzine.org/all-releases/lainzine05/txt/go-outside.txt from lainzine.
It's crazy how I feel like I just arrived here (into this world) yesterday yet so old. The trees that used to tiny while I was a kid are enormous in size; to which i had to sit down against to observe its tiny branches now have to sit down to observe its not so tiny branches, how fascinating? how…terrifying?

It's good to know that I still persist the same kid inside me, the same energitic, daring, adaptive to environment me with me or is me ;). Dancing around like a autist in his room and performing occult like in https://youtu.be/VjGSMUep6_4?si=yzAggkzazn7pmLxV while upgrading his little machines, moonwalking from one side of the room onto the other like a 14 year old; stopping by and sitting unfazed, focusing like a unemployed poet while studying his crafts, working on things, which he hopes would be of use one day and feel old when some kid on the internet says 20 years is ancient(i'm 21) :/

so the attached piece describes the author's journey through life(sort of) how the new giant seemingly influenced the lifestyle of newlifed and how author says its getting tougher to find the "thinking people" inside the SSD. Are you the "thinking people"? Am I "thinking people"? What and who is the "thinking people"?

I sometimes feel old and lonely, but it'd be alright, focusing on my craft which i hope would provide me warmth, in the end I want to ask you: How are you…Friend?


>20 years is ancient
>i'm 21
I'm double your age and the next 20 years will fly by much faster. That's for sure. Last time I heard those 30+ on the web was "fossils"? I guess in more younger circles they would think 20+ is old when in fact it's when you really start your life. Unless in the odd circumstance you had one of those extremely experienced childhood/teenage lifestyle where shit was always happening and you went without being supervised by any adults whatsoever doing whatever you wanted. There are some EXTREMELY rare cases such as those.


i wouldn't say i had an extremely experienced childhood/teenage lifestyle(maybe it was to some extent?) , but i do think that my lifestyle was not something that might be considered complete normal either regardless of that, i relate to people from past of me(old people) than i do to my peers, i don't.

anyways how's life?

Beneath the Neon Canopy: The Subversive Realms of Cyberpunk Bridge Punk Sanctuaries

In the labyrinthine sprawl of cyberpunk cityscapes, beneath the monolithic structures and the neon-lit skyline, lies a subculture that thrives in the shadows – the bridge punk sanctuaries. These clandestine havens, tucked away beneath the towering bridges that crisscross the urban expanse, represent not only a refuge for the disenfranchised but also a symbol of resistance against the oppressive forces of a dystopian future.

The choice of location for these sanctuaries is deliberate. Bridges, once symbols of connectivity and progress, now serve as paradoxical spaces where societal fractures become palpable. The bridge punks reclaim these forgotten spaces, transforming them into thriving communities that exist in stark contrast to the polished facades above. Underneath the concrete and steel, a counterculture emerges, challenging the very foundations of the society that has neglected its own.

One defining feature of these sanctuaries is the resourceful repurposing of urban detritus. From discarded materials, bridge punks construct makeshift shelters that defy the conventional notion of home. Cardboard, salvaged wood, and repurposed scraps become the building blocks of resilience. In this process, the bridge punk sanctuaries not only provide physical shelter but also symbolize the resilience of the human spirit in the face of societal neglect.

The subversive nature of these sanctuaries lies not only in their physical existence but also in the communal dynamics that develop within. Bridge punks form a microcosm of society, albeit one that rejects the norms imposed by the elite. Shared adversity becomes the bond that ties them together, fostering a sense of belonging and mutual reliance. In these subterranean communities, the inhabitants become architects of their own social order, challenging the hierarchical structures prevalent in the world above.

Furthermore, the bridge punk sanctuaries embody a unique form of resistance against the pervasive surveillance and control characteristic of cyberpunk worlds. Far removed from the watchful eyes of corporate entities and authoritarian regimes, these spaces become pockets of freedom where autonomy is reclaimed. The very act of existing beneath the radar becomes a form of protest, a silent rebellion against the omnipresent gaze of those who seek to manipulate andPost too long.

Where I live the bridge punks don't care about tech or cyberpunk culture, they only care about their next high and to rape any women walking alone.

Do the asthetics of your technology matter to you? Do you prefer a spartan look that minimizes distractions, or do you find that a little flair brightens up your usage of technology?

are you retarded?


Technology is just another tool to use in your life, I care more if it can do the job I require of it. I have more important things to occupy my mind with.


It matters becasue I have to stare at it four hours on end every day and being surrounded by ugliness is bad for the soul.

It depends on how I'm feeling, but overall, I enjoy minimalism like that what you find when using command prompt. Computers are machines, after all. Cold lifeless byproducts of logic. Command windows, with their plain font, illegible codes jetting up the screen, and infinite abyss of darkness is very sobering and makes me feel good looking at it.

I feel at home looking at a terminal. Anything else is bloatware garbage


I miss truly innovative designs. The early 2000s was the last time we really had "sovl".

I'm remaking this general after I've come back to the site getting wiped. Talk about old, unwanted computers and other tech you've rescued from dumpsters, attics, sales, the side of the road, etc. and found a use for. Remember, it's only obselete if it can no longer do what you want.

i put fedora on my laptop the other day. its like a latitude 3180 someone ot me, it has 4gb ram and on windows was really slow but now its super fast and has 50gb more memory because it purged the widows aids.


Recently, I dug up my old PSP Go I used as a kid and turned it into a retro game emulator. I used it for years when my parents bought it for me back in 2009 and I remember dropping it, getting water on it, and just the general abuse I put it through being a kid and all. Let me tell you, these things are resilient, and I feel like there should be something said about the strength and quality of older electronics, but that's for another day.

When I found it, there was dust all over and the screen was hanging off from the ribbon display cable. I found the original charger and it charged like normal and started right up with all my save data still there from well over a decade ago.

I originally found it just to play Dissidia Final Fantasy again, which was more an impulse decision than anything. In the process of doing that, however, I found that there's an entire community of modders that make plug ins and emulators for the PSP, so after getting Final Fantasy going I decided to download any and every game my heart desired. This included classics from the PSP like Dissidia, SOCOM, Syphon Filter, MGS Peace Walker etc, but also included Gameboy, DS, Atari, and even PS1 games that looked and played incredibly well.

The memory on these things is a measly 16gb which was a big deal, at the time, but kind've a joke in today's 2 tb hard drive world. Sony had a remedy for this, as did most handhelds back then, with the addition of an SD port.

So just buy a 128 gig SD card, no biggie, right? Well, no, Sony had something to say about that too. They wanted their products to be completely proprietary, which is so strange looking back, but I guess most companies did that back then. You could only use the Sony branded M2 memory cards, which would net you an extra 16 gigs at most, which was still not much more.

Well guess what? Today, people make nonproprietary converters for the PSP SD port specifically, that let your use any SD card from any brand and almost any size.

Now, after tightening the loose screws back up, cleaning out the internals, adding way more storage capacity and loading a bunch of new software onto this neat little device, it's better and has more potential than it ever did back in 09. The sound only works if I have headphones in, but I think that adds a little character to it haha

It's fascinating to see just how much we've progressed in the software world after having reacquainted myself with Post too long. Click here to view the full text.
