If you are not familiar with Stoicism here are 3 key points:
*The single most important practice in Stoic philosophy is differentiating between what we can change and what we can’t. What we have influence over and what we do not.*
*A practicing Stoic has goals that they want to achieve, and they work hard in pursuit of those goals, but they also know that they’re not entitled to success.*
*You refuse to be a passive victim of your circumstances. You work hard to make your life better, to make the world better. You are you keep going.*
Stoicism is a school of philosophy founded by Zeno in Athens in the early 3rd century BC.
While Stoicism holds timeless truths, core parts in Stoicism preach the acceptance of death and suffering because that was the best they could do at the time.
Now, we have entered a time period where our actions can effect these metrics, and for that reason birth a new school of Stocism which rallies around this capability. We have long fought for survival with our physical self, we now enter an era where ones mind can break the shackles of genetic faultiness.
NeoStoicism holds the same core values as Stoicism, but it breaks open a new frame of mind that which is greater capability to effect the death and suffering of ourselves and the world at large. To effect the chance for decreasing suffering, increasing health span, and even making death optional.
Because our actions CAN change whether or not our parents live with us into the future, or how much they suffering in their old age means we should do EVERYTHING in our power to improve their odds of living longer and healthier.
Because our actions MIGHT be the difference in humanity existing forward into the cosmos or not, we should do EVERYTHING in our power to give humanity the best chance.
The bridge over mortality awaits us, the chance one could only dream of.
We either succeed or die trying, there’s nothing to lose but everything to gain.
When death was inevitable we had to come to peace with it, but now that we can oppose it we have to say peace to it.
