  1. Lol, NPCs don't exist. Everyone in a video game is controlled by another player: artificial intelligence isn't real.

  3. I honestly don't even suspect that it's an intentional philosophical trick or logical fallacy, I think they're legitimately just that ignorant of history and so cloistered into their own outrage bubbles that they have no concepts of old ideas being recycled or rebranded to suit the latest rage-mob. That concept is so old that even the Bible has a passage devoted to how nothing is really new. When an idea's over 2,000 years old bare minimum and you still haven't gotten the message, it's a bit ridiculous.

    Ecclesiastes 1:9 - 1:11 King James Version

    9 The thing that hath been, it is that which shall be; and that which is done is that which shall be done: and there is no new thing under the sun.
    10 Is there any thing whereof it may be said, See, this is new? It hath been already of old time, which was before us.
    11 There is no remembrance of former things; neither shall there be any remembrance of things that are to come with those that shall come after.

  4. SJWs may not be NPCs in a real sense, but the argument could be made that they are in fact brainwashed into acting like one.

    What is an NPC but a computer generated simulation that follows a preset programming.

    Same with how SJWs all completely and utterly are brainwashed into towing the party's cultural line.

    They are both incapable of original thought and follow a pre-set collection of behavior patterns that someone set for them.

    So yeah, they are not bio-robots, but they may as well be, since they have been culturally programmed to behave like one.

    SJWs follow a preset programming. That's why their only weaponry is crying buzzwords and when it fails, they get "LITERALLY SHAKING" like a servitor in mindlock.

    They aren't literally npcs, but they are as close as we can get to them with the current limits on technology!

  5. The NPC thing is extremely insulting when applied to SJWs. The old man who walks in place and endlessly welcomes me to Cornelia serves a purpose. SJWs serve no purpose.

  6. The only thing funny about this meme is how completely livid it makes SJWs.

    They get unreasonably mad about it, yet have nothing to dispute it with.

  7. It was wordfiltered at one point, if you were calling someone a sonyfag on /v/ it wordfiltered to "sonyfriend," and some people took to saying that unironically when the filter was removed. Newfriend is still occasionally seen as well.

    More specifically, "reddit spacing" is 3-4 simple sentences/points still spaced out.

    It's needless spacing for what should be one paragraph.

    Twitter-length imageboard posts don't need elaborate formatting or spacing.

    most vertebrates are sentient, the word you're thinking of is sapient, which is higher level thinking(and baked into the latin genus/species label homo sapiens)

  9. You gotta get that existential crisis out of your system. NPC or no you'd still feel the same, the distinction is philosophical.
    I have an internal dialogue, does that make me super duper sentient, or just schitzo?


    This whole npc thing is funny to me, as from my perspective we are all biological machines, and so the question of who is the player character is largely ephemeral. Unless we suppose that information is coming from out of universe and directing so called "player characters", there should be no distinction, and of course there is no evidence that this information does exist, so it is safe to assume that we are all NPCs in so much as anyone is. That said, people might none the less be thought of as NPCs if they do not demonstrate the features that are associated with intelligence, such as analysis and synthesis, and no doubt some people do lack these features. I would assume that they are unfortunate enough to have been saddled with older hardware, or simply have not taken the time to develop their minds.

    One could pull up the armchair to analyse why these kotaku writers are upset over an undead meme, but in all likelihood it is entirely due to tribe loyalty and a desire to berate their perceived enemies. There is certainly a lack of something spontaneous and thoughtful on the part of their ideologues, but that's not to say they're incapable of thought, just that they tend towards the established ideas of their ideology rather than coming up their own. The same could be said of any party zealot though.

    Real talk though, sjws absolutely are oblivion characters.

  10. I'm working of the inference that if you lack an inner monologue, you lack basic self awareness or empathy.

    Personally I'm still reeling from the "inner monologue" study. It never would have occurred to me that there were people out there who didn't talk to themselves constantly inside of their own heads. Just the thought of that is completely unreal to me and I'm almost refusing to accept that this study's being truthful because I just don't want to believe that people like that exist, let alone so many of them.

  12. Why not? Do you assume that things in your head given voice simply wouldn't happen at all if not experienced as a voice? They probably do all the same things you do, they just don't experience it as an inner monologue.

  13. I don't even buy that idea. Admittedly having not read the study, I think there's two possibilities: one, the study is bullshit. Two, some rag completely misinterpreted what the study's conclusion claimed and it ballooned from there all over the clickbait sphere. I think the latter is more likely.

  14. I had never heard of the "inner monologue" study before this, and as fascinating as this is, something about this is scary. There was a time back when I was young where I once questioned (to myself haha) if it was normal to have a conversation with yourself or even carry out a hypothetical scenario mentally, never once occurring to me there are other people who do that, too (closest I got was seeing it being used as jokes in cartoons, specifically The Simpsons). Average intelligence scares me over how widespread it is but that's because I'm consistently forgetting that average intelligence isn't stupid, just average--whatever that means. I guess non-average folks can't gauge how average is normal or something and that's why people easily blend in a crowd. But yet, if an average-intelligence person can think for themselves just fine, then how is it easy to rile up mob mentality? All it does is justify the famous Men in Black line: "A person is smart. People are dumb, panicky dangerous animals and you know it." And yet somehow that quote carries truth.

    Like... humans can't be this stupid, not when we're inventors (even though the inventors only make up like--pfffffft--I guess no more than 5% of the population just to be generous). Were humans always this stupid before the overabundance of technology? It's hard for someone on the spectrum to put themselves in other people's shoes, but does the average person do this without thinking, or does it have to be taught? How have people lived out their day-to-day lives without thought if this is common in folks who don't have some kind of brain anomaly? How has more people not gone insane from seemingly having nothing going on in their heads--or do only those who have inner speech go crazy?

    I'm just now beginning to understand those who say we're all in a simulator, but dear God what is real life anymore?

    But to circle it back to this thread's topic, at least it's easy to weed out the morons who are losing their shit over the NPC meme. Even though it's just making it harder to believe these individuals can even function anywhere.

  15. Lack of an inner monologue doesn't mean stupid. It just means lack of an inner monologue. Everyone is taking way too much out of this. Is a synesthete smarter than you because they can see the color 7? Or do they just experience a different sensory landscape than you?

  16. I mean it does come across as clickbait material, so I wouldn't be surprised if that was what happened.

    Though why they're going on about some shitty 4Chan meme like it's anything more than a shitty meme that needs to die is something I don't think I'll ever understand.

  19. Well if you're upset about someone using internet memes as a serious critique/insult , my initial thought is why arnt you laughing at them for being such a fucking sperg?

    And then the answer comes to me-because they're the sperg the other spergs bully.
