Life is about pleasure

Matt Participant I have made a different and much more convincing argument for pleasure being the only greatest thing in life that actually has different things than what was written before.

Life is about pleasure

This is a personal issue and I wish to discuss it. Therefore, I must explain everything in detail as to why Life is about pleasure have these beliefs to the point where it is convincing to you just like how it is with me.

My goal here is to argue my points to where they cannot be refuted in order to fully convince you if possible. One more very important thing I would like to add before I present my summary here is that I am going to share and talk about my issues my beliefs here regardless of whether it offends you or not.

A Feature of Momentary Experience

Therefore, I am now going to present my summary here and freely speak my mind: For example, create any shape, letter, or sound in your mind that has no meaning to you whatsoever and does not evoke any emotional response. Therefore, any meanings we create in life are all the same in that sense because they, too, are nothing more than just imagery, words, sounds, etc.

And that goes for all other things in life besides pleasure because they, too, are all neutral things except for feelings of pain and depression which are bad in of themselves.

So all meanings we create in life are neutral because they all come from the exact same functions of the brain that create these neutral words, sounds, imagery, etc. Whereas, emotions such as rage and pleasure are completely different functions of the brain as they are completely different experiences.

These emotions, in of themselves, can never be neutral and are always positive or negative. Pleasure will always be positive and feelings such as rage or depression will always be negative regardless of what meanings you attribute to them.

Hedonism is a very popular and convincing belief well supported by science that states that pleasure is the only good thing in life and that nothing else is anything good at all though my version of hedonism involves you harming others as long as it brings you the most pleasure in life: It does not matter if you were to help others, do great things in your life, etc.

All our thoughts, knowledge, intelligence, etc.

Suggest a Verse

Meaning, that if you have lost one of your emotions which would be pleasurethen you would be less human and more towards being a biological robot.

Also, pleasure, in of itself, is a good experience and we do not need any created meanings in life which would be knowledge, thoughts, etc. The same thing goes for depression. Depression in of itself is a bad experience and we do not need any knowledge or thoughts to tell us that it is bad.

So you would have the right to take advantage and harm others as long as it makes you happy in life because, again, you are not in the minds of other people who feel pain and despair. So how much something matters to you and how much value, worth, and beauty it has to you how good it is to you all solely depends on your own level of pleasure in life.

If you have no pleasure, then life itself as well as everything and everyone will have no value, worth, and beauty whatsoever to you and will not matter to you at all no matter what you think otherwise. If you have little pleasure, then things will only matter little to you.

But if you have a lot of pleasure, then things will matter greatly to you and the things and actions that give you the most pleasure would matter the most to you again, even if it is harming or taking advantage of others.

Again, you mattering to others and them having value and worth towards you and viewing you as a beautiful person does NOT give you or your life value, worth, and beauty because, once again, you will be and forever will be in your own mind and it will only be your own pleasure that gives you these things.

Also, I said that you are free to harm and take advantage of others as long as it brings you the most pleasure in life. However, I would never take advantage or harm others despite my beliefs in pleasure being the only greatest thing in life because I am not that type of person at all.

Now I am actually going to make a more convincing argument for hedonism and how pleasure is the only good thing in life. First off, we all know that depression is a very bad experience. So we can obviously conclude that depression itself is a bad thing.

In other words, any positive meanings you have attributed to your depression are meanings that stand by themselves. They do not become infused with your depression and make your depression something good. Because depression itself is not any thought or meaning whatsoever.pleasure, joy, and enjoyment mean the agreeable feeling that accompanies getting something good or much wanted.

pleasure is used for a feeling of happiness or satisfaction that may not be shown openly. He took pleasure in helping others. joy is used for a radiant feeling that is very strong. Hers is a life filled with joy.

The pleasure principle is at the base on hedonism, the idea that life is to be lived to the full and pleasure sought as a primary goal. Hedonists in the extreme will be self-destructive in their use of sex, drugs, rock and roll and other methods of gratification.

Pleasure is a broad class of mental states that humans and other animals experience as positive, enjoyable, or worth seeking. It includes more specific mental states such as happiness, entertainment, enjoyment, ecstasy, and euphoria. LIFE IS PLEASURE. K likes.
