Everything Is BLEEPED: a Book about Hope - Deepstash

MARK MANSON

One day, you and everyone you love will die. And beyond a small group of people for an extremely brief period of time, little of what you say or do will ever matter. This is the Uncomfortable Truth of life. And everything you think or do is but an elaborate avoidance of it. We are inconsequential cosmic dust, bumping and milling about on a tiny blue speack. We imagine our own importance. We invent our purpose - we are nothing.

The Universe Does Not Care

The Universe Does Not Care

It feels as though the world has some sort of greater importance, yet in the scale of the infinitely expanding universe, we are nothing but another cluster of atoms.

You are the one who cares. You convince yourself that things matter in order to avoid the Uncomfortable Truth (the idea that our lifes are meaningless)

Hope Is Necessary

Hope Is Necessary

"Something needs to matter because without something mattering, then there's no reason to go on living."

Hope is what keeps us going. If we have no belief in the future being better than the present, we spiritually die.

There needs to be some source of hope giving us a reason to get up in the mornings - and if we can't find it, we'll create it.

Finding A Purpose

Finding A Purpose

We make hope narratives whenever we go through difficulty. For example: "My grandfather died, so I must live to make him proud". 

These narratives we create for ourselves give purpose when its running out. Narratives vary and can be anything from raising kids well to improving a golf swing.

Why People Choose Religions

Why People Choose Religions

"People flock to religion, because religions acknowledge this permanent state of unknowing and demand faith in the face of it."

Religions remove the need to develop a personal manifesto. Your life will be figured out as long as you believe, and the Uncomfortable Truth will loose its power.

The Phychological Carrot At The End Of The Stick

The Phychological Carrot At The End Of The Stick

No matter what your narrative is, what you believe in, it'll have the same implications as all other beliefs:

  1. There is a potential for growth or improvement or salvation in the future.
  2. There are ways we can nagivate ourselves to get there.

These are the principles we all live by every single day. Though the narrative may change, the format remains the same.

Paradox Of Progress

Paradox Of Progress

We've never been wealthier in terms of materials and it's only getting better, yet we're still hopeless.

"The wealthier and safer the place you live, the more likely you are to commit suicide."

Creating Hope

Creating Hope

"To build and maintain hope, we need three things: a sense of control, a belief in the value of something, and a community."

We need to believe that we're in control of our own fate, we need to know that there's some greater value we can strive for and we need support from other believers.

If any of three are lacking, we lose them all.

Best app ever! You heard it right. This app has helped me get back on my quest to get things done while equipping myself with knowledge everyday.

Ashley Anthony

This app is LOADED with RELEVANT, HELPFUL, AND EDUCATIONAL material. It is creatively intellectual, yet minimal enough to not overstimulate and create a learning block. I am exceptionally impressed with this app!

Giovanna Scalzone

Brilliant. It feels fresh and encouraging. So many interesting pieces of information that are just enough to absorb and apply. So happy I found this.

Even five minutes a day will improve your thinking. I've come across new ideas and learnt to improve existing ways to become more motivated, confident and happier.

Laetitia Berton

I have only been using it for a few days now, but I have found answers to questions I had never consciously formulated, or to problems I face everyday at work or at home. I wish I had found this earlier, highly recommended!

Jamyson Haug

Great for quick bits of information and interesting ideas around whatever topics you are interested in. Visually, it looks great as well.
