You don't need a lot of money.

Weekend Lounge Post:

We all think we need a lot of money. Which is not true. We WANT a lot of money. That is different from NEEDING. What you actually need is something different.

These are the seven needs without which you will surely die:

(In order of how long they take to kill you)

1) Air: Without it you'll die within minutes.
2) Water: Without it you'll die in a week.
3) Sleep: Without it you'll die in 11 days.
4) Food: Without it you'll die in 3 weeks.
5) Shelter: That supports your physical form.
6) Relationship: Connection with other beings (be it humans, animals, plants).
7) Creative Expression: You need to express who you are.

Good post , but money brings everyday and have its own drawbacks as well !
 
that's is to keep people positive and make them see that there is more than the problems they curently have but reality still there you need money to live difference is the way you get it and how bad is your situation to get anything of those, still I get your point unfortunatelymoney rule the world and that is what gives you status and basic needs.
 
You don't need that


I have arguments why money is the most important thing in life, dating back to 2022

Sugar -> Without it you turn into a crackhead (you need to be one to know one)
 
Yeah, this sounds like Maslow's hierarchy of needs, but leaving out some of it. So in actuality you would need money to strive instead of just surviving. The most important and basic ones are at the base of the pyramid. maslow-s-hierarchy-of-needs--scalable-vector-illustration-655400474-5c6a47f246e0fb000165cb0a-e...jpg

I feel like safety, love, esteem are above self actualization in some people's minds...

That's completely crappy life as you're never satisfied and will never become so self actualized to get yeah... Safety and so on... They try to self actualize without these. Thinking it will get them safety and love and Esteem

It's called pathology.

I even witnessed car accident victim that smoked cigs and worked a hard underpaying 9-5. He didn't drink water. There was barely any air in workplace. Complete human catastrophe. Even though they had money. The person was from Ukraine. He was told to train me. He barely could speak because of the accident. Destroyed vocal cords.

I had to figure out on my own what he wants to say. It took 2 days of constant explanations and I still couldn't understand what he really means. He called dirt as "cat". Wtf

The idiot who hired him wasn't even involved in recruitment. Outsourcing shit of west Europe to East Europe.

In some cases it definitely seems pathological but I'm not an accredited expert on the matter. Also, these needs do overlap at times and depends on the individual itself but claiming to have attained enlightened self-actualization without a roof over your head and food in your belly does seem a bit schizo.

For me even work doesn't make sense if you don't have food. First hunt, then work. Not the other way around. Survival... Work without water? Haha. Funny. Did that yesterday. I drank 3 liters of isotonic to recover in 3 hours. My stomach almost blew up from dehydration. It was worse than 2 liters vodka hangover.

Well yeah, exactly. That's why Physiological needs are at the very bottom as the "base". And your mentioned example with the guy from Ukraine, well, I guess he has a bit of disregard for his own wellbeing as well as some grit.
 
Yeah, but the more money you have, the less you have to worry about securing tomorrow. If I would stop having an income now, I would have issues with most of those points pretty much right away. Of course, I can adjust and do something else if necessary and I will make a survival, but if I had more money, I wouldn't notice it for longer. Right now, I can live maybe 3-4 months without being broke, but if I were richer, I could live years and decades before I end up broke and need to find new money

My Source is not Maslow, it's Bashar, a channeler. What can I say, philosophy is my favorite passtime.:D

Also my order of needs was based on "How soon it will kill you!", as mentioned in the first post.

You'd go bankrupt as you say. The problem with this thread is that...

It should say

You need health and discipline.

That's all.

A mix of neurotransmitters fine tuned by your choices and help of your environment.

COOOL BUZZWORD - FINE TUNED :D

Now...

Bullshit fine-tuned to your interests!

Money is just value in form of digits, right. But that's not universal for humans. What's universal is health and discipline.

Money is love. That's the truth. But that can be used irresponsibly. We all know how many fantastic people married for love and left as wrecks.

Yeah but if I am broke and can't eat, then discipline is completely irrelevant and my health deteriorates.
