    he id is part of the id, ego, and super-ego, the three parts of the psychic apparatus in Freudian psychology (in English translations of Freud's work)

    yeah....

    Id is your instict
    Ego are your standards
    Super Ego is your society's standards

    So I'm saying from a philosophical stance how much reliance on instincts does it take to ignore everything you believe and everything you've been told?

    At what point is murder justifiable or is it never justifiable or always a rationalization?

    At what point do we say fuck it, It's me against the world and I'm the only person who matters?

    At what point do we consider the possibility that other people aren't even real and that the only thing we know is what we know.

    Is that insanity or some sort of enlightenment. It's like I interact with you but how do I know I'm not the only one typing? How do I know my mind isn't playing tricks on me.

    It's like the matrix.... ooohhh matrix.

    2 kinds of people in this world. People I know and what I call 'other' people. I don't give a fuck about other people

    Exactly. In my humble opinion how do we know they even exist? Rumors of wars are not proof of wars.

    Maybe I'm missing what you're saying, but is this the question: How do I know that anybody besides me is real? I think about that shit all the time, and maybe this is all just an elaborate and depressing fantasy that I've placed myself into. But I'm kinda high, so maybe I'm not getting your point, or maybe I'm making no fuckin sense.

    You can't prove anyone else exists, even people you love/like/know intimately.

    You can go a way to proving that you exist because you are considering whether you exist ergo you must exist in some form.

    Wether other people matter depends entirely on them. Due to this fact, most people don't matter.

    I gotta bring this bitch back from the grave.

    The original post is the most interesting part of this conversation. We can never truly know anyone's existence save our own (unless some sort of Being John Malkovich situation somehow arises through technology), but how much do we have to really believe it to say "It's all an illusion so I might as well start merking bitches?" Cuz I can't conceive anything
