A Generation of Men Advancing Too Quickly

For all the benefits the manosphere has had on men, the male population, and male psychology, an unfortunate drawback is that it is so efficient and effective that men are advancing intellectually “too” quickly. So much so that I predict MILLIONS of men are going to advance so quickly, and so efficiently, they will be forced to face the the “void,” the ultimate “blackness” and the end of life.

From my latest piece at ROK.

If you wish to look at this from a Darwinistic point of view, you are here merely to pass on your genes. Your philosophy, however, tells you to place a higher value upon living your life in such a manner that you avoid all possible negative outcomes involved in mating and raising a family. Therefore, you will not pass along your genes. According to Darwin, you are a failure and an evolutionary dead end.
I don't know, is that bleaker than the void?

It's not all that bad

Ever since I was 12, I've contemplated the day that I am lying on my deathbed with only a few minutes left to live. I don't think I'll ever be able to get past it though. I'm glad to know other men talk about this.

And to quote Spike. "bang"

It would appear that men are damned if they do, damned if they don't, and damned if they find a third way.

When the singularity comes, we'll upload ourselves and be able to live forever anyway.

Life is full of misery, loneliness, and suffering - and it's all over much too soon.

Oh for cripes sakes, really Marty?

I've been going full steam since my 20's and my primary complaint is i can't find nobody to keep up.

Ain't buying no sports car soon to make up for it. Besides, my girlfriend looks like she's 27. And I'm too damn tired to chase more.

I don't think the "void" is one's mortality. For me anyway, it's facing the question eternal question of "why?"

Once you see humanity for what it is(red pill), all the usual answers to the question of why become irrelevant.

The only answer left is, "for my own enjoyment". But even that eventually is not enough, is it?

Good post cap, though quite depressing.

Let's envy religious people, they don't have to face that matter.

The answers are of course different for everyone. When I was diagnosed with cancer, my first reaction was how meaningless my life had been. From then on I took steps to help hundreds of people in different ways, so when the end comes - postponed thankfully because the cancer is in remission - I can look back with satisfaction on a life that had purpose.

In your case, there is no way that you can look at the body of your work so far - your blog, your books, especially that wonderful volume Bachelor Pad Economics, and not see how you have helped countless others live a better life.

OK, we can never solve the question about what if anything happens after we die. It doesn't matter. We can die satisfied that we lived a life that was happy, fun, meaningful and served some purpose greater than ourselves.

Then we won't die as victims.
