Are we victims of the narrator's prophecy in the opening paragraph of Lovecraft's story The Call of Cthulhu?


The most merciful thing in the world, I think, is the inability of the human mind to correlate all its contents. We live on a placid island of ignorance in the midst of black seas of infinity, and it was not meant that we should voyage far. The sciences, each straining in its own direction, have hitherto harmed us little; but some day the piecing together of dissociated knowledge will open up such terrifying vistas of reality, and of our frightful position therein, that we shall either go mad from the revelation or flee from the deadly light into the peace and safety of a new dark age.

Lovecraft is a great author. Glad to see fellow-incels quoting his hallowed words.

That being said, I think the answer to your question is no. Most of us would have been incels regardless of the internet and would thus have suffered more by remaining immersed in :bluepill: lies and ignorance, not less. In fact, the internet has been a great boon to incels. First, because it makes :blackpill: knowledge infinitely easier to spread, thereby attenuating the psychological damage done by :bluepill: programming. And secondly, because it greatly facilitates the building of supportive communities like ours.

Pretty much yes. We are designed to be outside in the woods all day hunting for food or w/e. Not adsorbing knowledge into our brain via internet daily

It's the internet itself which enables Chad chasing, unless you speak of inceldom as an inevitable aspect of the human condition.

I think hardcore inceldom (i.e., the kind which is caused by noticeable genetic inferiority) has always been with us in one form or another. Chad chasing I regard more as a function of greater sexual freedom and more life course options in general for foids, both of which are developments that started well before the age of Tinder. Though I will grant that Tinder has made it easier for foids to actually find Chad. Even so, I suspect that without Tinder there would simply have been more (intermittent) volceldom among foids. This certainly would not have resulted in more sex for most men who are currently incel.

"the piecing together of dissociated knowledge will open up such terrifying vistas of reality"...i.e, the BlackPill.

I’m more driven mad realizing how similar online gaming communities are now to real life. I am getting blackpilled by just talking to people in MMO’s
