    Who are your favourite philosophers?

    I was reading harman’s OOO last year and remember feeling a really glaring error in the logic of it all and thinking “This is fucking stupid!” and stopped. Cant remember what it was now but it was fundamental to me. Cool story I know

    thats interesting but let’s forget the videos exist and go back to before we all found each other on the internet. What’s the Tingle feeling about? Why does it happen?

    That’s a bit wank tho init. Why do we read? Social connectedness! Music? Social connectedness! Films? Sex?

    Mukbang is a more explicit substitute. I can see why you’re linking the two because both mukbang and ASMR videos are used to give a specific effect...of social connectedness (I think, even if some people don’t know that’s what they’re looking for)

    Those noises are all someone taking care of something aren't they? Even if its a stranger or they;re recorded, it might trigger stuff from when you were young. Do you get it if it's just a machine whirring away, an animal, cars on a motorway?

    It must be more than white noise though... There's always purpose in there. Someone taking care of something and you're comforted by the presence, or the signal of that care?
