Ask @KeepYourEyesPeeled:

¿De qué manera te importa el bienestar de quienes te rodean? ¿Cómo haces a otras personas felices? ¿Hay alguna otra forma en que quisieras hacerlo pero por algún motivo, no puedes? ¡Saludos!

El bienestar de las personas que me rodean me importa tanto como el mio, algo así como si todos fuesen la misma persona (yo). No se como les hago felices, ni siquiera se si lo hago, pero a veces si lo intento con cosas que aparentemente no tienen importancia. Parece azar en muchos casos. Lo unico que me impide hacerlo quizas sea la ley, no se si me explico. Podria hacer muchas cosas que no hago por no meterme en lios indebidos. Mi etica personal digamos que es peculiar.

What are some of your last thoughts before you drift off to sleep?

Think too much about the past or the future. I am not where I have to be: sleeping. I'm usually running through ideas for a story I'm working on or asking some philosophical question about life or death or something of the sort. Visions of grandeur mostly.

Serais-tu favorable au retour du service militaire obligatoire ? Pourquoi ?

Questions Quotidiennes
Il y a tellement d’argent à mettre dans l’éducation que c’est indécent de s’en servir pour ça. Mettez plutôt du chauffage dans les amphis. Pas du tout. Le service militaire dans la forme sous laquelle il existait auparavant servait aux jeunes à apprendre à manier les armes pour créer une réserve militaire pour défendre la patrie. Or, en 2018 la France n'a plus besoin de ça. Après, sous une autre forme, à voir suivant ce qui est proposé mais j'ai énormément de mal à en voir l'intérêt. Je suis contre en grande partie, comme beaucoup (du moins je pense?) parce que j'ai pas envie de le faire, et deuxièmement parce que je supporte pas l'armée, ni ce qu'elle fait malgré tous les "bons côtés" qu'on nous fout sous le nez assez régulièrement. C'est du lavage de cerveau et de la propagande et j'ai absolument pas envie d'être lié.e, de près ou de loin, à ça.

Thanks!Sorry if it's bothersome to keep asking advice on my decision,but I just wanna get different POV's on it.I'm bad at being logical,always follow my heart.Should I work on the side just to be more financially independent while I chase my dream?Or should I put all my time into music?

I think you should do what you personally feel is best. That's my advice to you.

Thanks for the advice. Lol I want to pursue music and have for years,but as a younger kid I always heard how difficult it was to make it so I kinda pushed that dream off for broadcasting. Now I can't even get much of a job in broadcasting so yolo I'm gonna try music.

Brice
Good luck to you! I'm confident that you'll succeed. I have a feeling that you're going to do really well. I think you can make something real good for yourself in your chosen field. I think you're going to make it. I'm confident in your success. You're going to do just great.

Do you think it's worth following a dream of a certain job even if it's more likely to fail than succeed and you're already an adult who started to choose a safer career path that's not working as well as you want and you still live at home.Just a question I've been pondering for myself lately.

Brice
Depends on the type of person you are. If you’re still living at home with no dependents nor any other major financial obligations, then I say go for it. Even on a part-time basis while holding onto your current job. When people come to the end of their lives, it’s rarely the things they did that they regret. It’s the things they didn’t do.

Do you have codes of behavior or philosophies that you abide by? If so, what are they.

Be tolerant, the truth is always up for debate. Love, be kind, and only ruse a feather if I feel the feather should be woken. Do good and don't look back. I hope so. A few billion of us have to get on together and share finite resources. Be open-minded.

Do you believe in God and religions? if yes, how can you prove to an Atheist that God is real?

Dana
I believe religions exist, but their deities most probably do not. I'm not religious, I'm not certain on where I stand really. But can an atheist prove there isn't? Why does one need proof? Isn't that what having faith in something is? Whatever it may be. Sounds to me like they may be scared to die.
I do, but I don't try to convince people to believe. If they are open to the concept to religion it might be worth a chat. I can't prove it. Wait until we die and see it for yourself. It’s about having faith. No. Sometimes life can seem a bit pointless if there isn't something else but when you try to articulate what the "something else" might be you find yourself in the realm of the absurd. We should be able to tolerate each other regardless. Most religions teach people not to tolerate people but to convert them instead.

The "internet of things" is quickly becoming a reality. Just today I bought a Wi-Fi enabled doorbell. Apparently, there are washing machines that will alert your phone when the cycle is done and refrigerators that will tell you when you're out of milk. How far can we go with this?How far is too far?

hamburgercrimp
I don't know, but I know that the 'investment' of one thing always leads to the 'divestment' of another, and the extent of our dependency has become potentially deadly. It's all junk though, isn't it? A wi-fi enabled doorbell. This distinguishes it from a normal doorbell how? You don't need a washing machine capable of alerting your phone. If you're at work what use is it? You need an integrated system that can unload the machine. Pretty soon, the only one's who will be talking in my house, are the appliances. I don't blame technology. If not for technology, this house might just be an empty void. Now excuse me, I have to go and see if my toaster remembered to tell the coffee maker to brew me a fresh cup. Surely you would notice when you are out of milk when you take the last carton out of the fridge and don't put it back because it's empty? Will a smart fridge tell you when one of your kids has left the milk out on the kitchen worktop? I've never understood what those smart thermostats are for. One of the adverts says about turning up the heating while you are out but if there's no-one home, why would you want to do that? Also, if you've set your traditional thermostat properly a significant drop in temperature will cause it turn on the heating anyway. One of my friends bought a smart doorbell complete with camera that could stream to his Android phone. It got stolen within 24 hours (it was worth about £140). My doorbell cost me less than £10 and has never been stolen. It doesn't tell me when people call while I'm out, but that's fine because I'm not there and I can't answer the door anyway.
Most of these smart devices have yet to do anything that seems useful to me. What is the point? I can understand forgetting to lock your doors and locking them remotely, but milk? You don’t want any extra WiFi signals in your house. They will fry your brain and make you want to buy more WiFi devices, which will fry your brain and make you want to buy more WiFi devices, and so on. You can link just about any item to the internet or to a mobile service, people are stupid with money.

What impact would it have on you if religion did not exist? Would your view of the world and yourself be any different from what it is now?

Nocturnal
Personally? It wouldn't have any effect because I'm not, nor ever been, religious. It would make me more confident in people's ability to think critically. Too often are people unable to make the soundest of decisions when religion is influencing their thought processes. I would be slighly less suspicious of old men in dresses. On one hand I think it would be great and the world would be a better place...on the other hand though I love stories of Norse mythology and the Greek gods, so it would be a shame for them not to exist. And a lot of impressive artwork has been inspired by religion, particularly paintings and sculptures. I probably wouldn't have had so many issues with my family if it didn't. But other than that it woukd affect me very little. We would gain a lot without religion and also lose so much. It cuts both ways, no doubt about it. I would suspect the most gains from lack of religion would come on the rational side of things, advancements in sciences, mathematics, and logic, while most of the losses would come on the cultural side of things, artwork, writing and poetry, and architecture. I honestly cannot imagine how different my life would be. As one born into it, sent to Catholic school for my formative years and eventually breaking free of it post high school and looking around to see so many still grasped in what seems most likely to be lies; it has been very influential at every step of my life. I think religion plays a big role. It would depend whether or not my parents’ morals are independent of Catholicism, since they raised me. I suspect they are, since there are rules in Catholicism with which they disagree. For me? No impact whatsoever, although certain things would likely be more comfortable. I would look for which substitutes have taken its place. Religion is part of human nature.

(Proposée par un.e anonyme) Crois-tu à un monde sans créations de l'Homme ? (vivre entièrement en harmonie avec la nature)

FSIQA
Je crois à un monde sans créations et de l'Homme, mais ça impliquerait un monde sans Homme (auquel je crois à fond également). Je ne suis ni biologiste ni philosophe, mais, à mon sens, le fait de modifier la nature - car je suppose que ce que tu entends par "en harmonie avec la nature" consiste à la laisser vierge de toute intervention extérieure - est un comportement humain tout à fait normal, qui lui permet de suppléer à son absence d'avantages "naturels" (pas de griffes, de crocs, une agilité tout à fait médiocre...). Certains animaux modifient la nature, je pense aux castors ou même aux abeilles ou aux termites. Nous le faisons à une échelle infiniment plus complexe. Donc, pour faire simple, non, je n'y crois pas, tant que l'homme arpentera la planète. Par contre, je crois à un monde dans lequel notre sens moral nous permet de préserver, par nos créations, un écosystème dans lequel nous pouvons vivre. (parce que la nature, elle s'en contrecarre, de nos saloperies. Quelques millions d'années après notre passage, il ne restera pas grand chose). On l’a déjà fait dans le passé, donc ça me semble envisageable mais il faudrait que notre génération disparaisse car personne accepterait de vivre ainsi.

Do you think Venezuela will descend into a civil war?

No, there won’t be a civil war, not at least between oppositors and government. This is the explanation: the Venezuelan national anthem starts with “Glory to the brave people that cast away the yoke”. However that people that fought the Spaniards in 1810 and defeated them to obtain their independence is no longer there. It’s not clear who is opposing to the government or why, actually. Many people are against communism, of course, and they are identified as right-wingers, but they’re a minority. Most Venezuelans are socialism-oriented ideologically as they’ve enjoyed of the welfare of a big State with a high public expense during decades, even before former dictator Hugo Chavez appeared in the political scene. However almost all Venezuelans are suffering now the comsequences of socialism, a big and very crooked State ruled by ignorant and violent criminals, some with a past in communist guerrillas during the 70’s. As long as the government keeps distributing some freebies to poor people, they will support their opressors because many Venezuelans just can’t imagine life without a protectionist State providing food, housing and education to them no matter if the quality of such services is actually very poor. This is the people that blocks any civil initiative to start a real war against the government. They are victims of their own dictators but they’re still afraid of living 100% free, working by their own. paying for their own food, housing and education as a reward for their job. The result is the poorest country in South America with the richest oil reserves, without enough gas for their cars as their oil refineries are out of service most of time, without enough food although the country has almost 1M km2 of tropical weather and more than 1000km coast in the Caribbean sea. So although the situation is critical, few middle and high class people is eager to risk their lives fighting against their oppressors. However if for some reason the government is dropped and democracy returns, there will be a civil war! Poor people won’t accept a democratic government that would cut all kind of subsidized economy in exchange for their freedom. They are able to use weapons and kill or even get killed because after 18 years of socialist indoctrination they’re terrified about the idea of being left alone working by their own and getting their own stuff by themselves.

Has anybody thought that you are arrogant or unfriendly and misapprehended your personality, because of being an introvert?

As a young teen, I was very shy. Moved to a new school and the kids thought I was a snob. They were so wrong. Yes, unfortunately that often has happened. My resting expression is rather stern. I think pretty much everyone thinks I'm arrogant. But I don't think it's because I'm an introvert. I just come off that way. Yes, I think so. Not wanting to attend group activities or parties etc. doesn't help. It happened when I came to the school I am working at. I did not care much, to be honest. A few have not changed their mind. Do not care either. I don’t know if that’s the reason, but it probably doesn’t help. People see what they want to see but also what they see at the time. People think because I don't share openly or talk much that I'm suppressed or don't have anyone to talk to. That's not true, I get my needs met. There are days where I'm more observational and just don't talk. But it's always incomplete and debatableable. I'm good with that.
