The Whitepill

What is the whitepill?

It is the name given to a system of ideas developed over the years that aim to achieve happiness in our depressive and oppressive 21st century society. It’s an experiment, an amalgamation of ideologies, and a psychological and physical guide for those who feel that they have no purpose in our world.

Because let’s be frank: Most people today aren’t happy.

Some enjoy life. They have close loved ones, engaging hobbies, love their job and field of study; maybe they have enough money to skip work altogether. Then some people are okay with life. They study, but lack motivation. They work, but they wish they didn’t have to. They find life lacks a spark, and merely look forward to the next fleeting moment of joy.  And then some people don’t enjoy life. They long for loved ones that do not come, have a job they keep only to avoid starving, feel dread at waking up to another day of infernal routine.

The whitepill is aimed for the last group, although hopefully anyone can take away lessons from here. Overall, this is a guide made for people to get out of an endless cycle of depression and despair.

Where does the whitepill come from?

The origin of the “pills” comes from the Matrix: Morpheus offers Neo one of two pills, a red, or a blue one. The red one would allow Neo to see the reality of the world he lived in, while the blue one would take him back to sweet ignorance.

Thus, in the early 2000’s two sociological understandings appeared: The bluepill and the redpill.

The bluepill is the belief that when it comes to social interactions, true personality and being yourself are key to success. The redpill claims the bluepill is unrealistic, and that instead certain attitudes and behaviors maximise your impact. Dress this way, talk that way, behave this other way. The blackpill is an extension of the redpill that appeared in the early 2010s. It is based on the idea that appearance is the most important consideration in our society, impacting almost every interaction we have.

The whitepill was created in response to the three pills. In contrast to them, it does not seek to explain our world, but rather tries to use the information already gathered to adapt to it and prescribe behavior.

All in all, I make no promises. My hope however is that the information in this blog helps you, even if just a little.

    I have always thought the white pill to be reaching a state of emptiness or nothingness, a state where you feel pretty numb to pain. But however, it seems that the white pill is taken to maximizes one’s happiness. I feel like this is synonymous with solipsism. If you choose to maximize other people’s happiness, then you will lose out on maximizing your own happiness, in a sense of minimizing your own pleasures (not enabling yourself to cope with hedonism). It is you that comes first and satisfying your own needs matters, before attending to others.

    We cannot find enjoyment in all things. We should also remind ourselves that happiness cannot ever be endless. We float about different waves, oscillations, and fluctuations of emotions, because thats what makes us humans.

      That’s a good analogy to the 5 stages of grief.
      I don’t know enough about the Purplepill myself, but I’ll look into it, you may have a point.
