What is the Whitepill?
The Whitepill is a system intended to suggest a path to happiness. It works as a guide, especially for those suffering in our current society, who feel their lives are empty and lack meaning or purpose.
This is a “pill” due to the fact these ideas can be ‘swallowed’, changing your perspective on things. For a thorough explanation click here.
Why is the Whitepill for those depressed or living empty lives?
There already are many refined systems or philosophies out there to lead a ‘good’ life (e.g., Buddhism, Stoicism, Taoism, Confucianism, etc), but they all require heavy changes for someone to adapt, especially for the average person living in the 21st century. We live in a society where depression is skyrocketing, suicides increase every year, and a top elite keeps stealing the resources of our world; it is not easy to find the willpower to create a new lifestyle from scratch. Thus, the Whitepill attempts to be pragmatic instead of idealistic, giving concrete and simple examples to attempt to achieve joy in life.
Why white specifically?
White is created in additive color theory by mixing the primary colors (red, green and blue), thus white is metaphorically the unification of information from other “pill” systems, like the redpill, bluepill, blackpill, etc. The name isn’t important at the end of the day.
