I personally think philosophy is underneath literally every subject. Perhaps I'm stretching the definition of philosophy a bit but if you do that thing kids sometimes do where you repeatedly ask 'why?' it'll get pretty abstract and pretty philosophical really quickly.

Developing a diverse philosophical toolkit is always a good thing to do.
The why philosophy to me is worthless, and i dont think it bring anything very useful.

Philosophy is useful for me because it teach wisdom, how to live my life, it teach the right mindset to see the world.
If you look deep enough you will notice that most school of philosophy are quite similar that tell you something about the timeless wisdom that can be learned

I don't think that the schools are similar. I am an Epicurean. It's quite different from the others.

There are state philosophies and private philosophies. The state philosophers are mostly lying.

Others like Schopenhauer and Epikur are more honest.

That is why you should ask the "why" question otherwise you get tricked easily.

Epicureans philosophy seems interesting, but idk much about it except the very basic descriotion. Would be interested in the how because at first view it seems to be a bit too hedonistic.

Im no expert but i do read alot. Regading stoitism i only read Aurelius so far. Got Senaca shortness of life a few week back and will surely read Epikur afterward.
Also interested in learning more about Kant, i just know the basic i got in one sociology class in colleges

Imo
There is similarities, the focus what you can control and your reaction to things is one.
Look at some Aurelius quote , Buddhist and even Nietzsche there is similar thinking.
Same with the story of Epikur and his broken arm, we have seen some very similar things by Buddist monk.

I would start with Epikur. The reason why hedonism is connected to Epikur is for two reasons. The first is propaganda almost from all religions and state philosophers because they don't want people to be independent and free.

The second reason is many people are to weak. Epikur believes in the pleasure and pain principle but he believes that they must be tamed as well.

Epikur's life principles are simple and down to earth.

1, Live hidden (in your garden with friends or something like that). Away from politics.
2. Be minimalistic and frugal. Don't chase status, sex, don't get greedy.
3. Channel your couriosity, the notion to conquer, the notion expand,
wanting to get away form bordeom into INTELLECTUAL COURIOCITY

If you have these as a basis you will learn about other philosophers without
getting too much negatively impacted, distracted, irritated, annoyed, hypnotized by them.

One of the honest philosophers is Arthur Schopenhauer.

He gave some information about romance:

Love is of such high import, because it has nothing to do with the woe of the present individual. It has to secure the existence and special nature of the human race in future times.’

Schopenhauer believed love is our sexual instinct wearing the mask of passion and romance. This sexual instinct deceives people that they love each other so that they have sex and accomplish nature’s greatest goal: procreation.

To prove that love is nature attempting to attain its goals, Schopenhauer provided an example of how a man’s love for his woman decreases after a while and the man gets attracted to other women so that he spreads his seed and ensures the survival of the human species. He also supported his argument by claiming that a woman’s love is constant because ‘nature compels her intuitively and unconsciously to take care of the supporter and protector of the future offspring.’


another one from him:

“A man can be himself only so long as he is alone; and if he does not love solitude, he will not love freedom; for it is only when he is alone that he is really free.”

If you didn't learn to dance you don't deserve to be happy.

This is a quote from me. Produced now.

Democracy is only good for swiss people.

like in Jason Brennan's book "Against Democracy":

It's mostly about repetition. With zumba it's only a matter of time

Thanks man
I see they doing some boxing moves, I taking classes at boxing maybe it would help
Hip movement is central to martial arts of all types. It is important in striking with power. In grappling, controlling your opponent's hips is the way to control his movements, because they are the middle of our body and everything else pivots around them.
