Everything’s underwater, food is looking a lil insecure, what fun!

Did anyone do Jeff Goldblum as Fredy Perlman for that meme yet?

Benjamin: I am going to surround myself with other people who love to hang out on the floor.

I have made some some more changes to the Tang Ping translation. It reads better and I think it gets across more what is being said in the original.

Ah, on a new instance so should introduce myself: I'm Art, I use she/they, I'm a green/nihilist anarchist but I mostly actually engage with antifascist stuff bc I live in London and that's the only interesting stuff happening here (that isn't infested with abuse and abuse apology). I like football a lot, I've followed Arsenal since the day I was born and I'm a member of a supporters-owned club called Clapton CFC which is firmly antifascist. Also I love fireworks.

needed to make a few edits so I put this all in a more shareable place.

I have an actor's certificate, and when I'm in a good mood, I still go to Hengdian to lie down. In short, I just lie down in a different way: life is to lie down.…

That's right, health is also important. Just after climbing the mountain, you can go swimming in the lake when the weather is a little hotter. I have been soaking in it almost all summer. It is essential to keep exercising.

Lying flat is the only objective truth in the universe. Rest, sleep, or death, the moment when a life full of desire and excitement becomes still and disappears is the embodiment of true justice. I choose to lie flat, and I am no longer afraid.

My position is not positioned by anyone. The ashes enter the sea and the soul floats to the universe. I just pass by in a hurry. When the time comes, it will be another trip.

Cats have subjectivity, but people don't. When will the alienated world die out?

Why should people find excitement for an obviously meaningless existence?

I hate the kind of "traditional family concept" that people should not be so tired all their lives for the sake of steel and concrete. People should pursue a simple life, so I always do things very slowly, because I don't need to do things for anyone. I sometimes hide somewhere to watch and laugh at those busy people…

Because I’m not going to be performing any labor, I am able to only eat two meals a day, noodles + eggs in the morning, rice + vegetables and eggs in the evening. On weekends, I can go to a restaurant for chicken chops and rice if I feel good. For me, solving food problems is to solve everything. My monthly expenditure is controlled within two hundred Yuan, and you can work for one to two months a year.

Lie flat is justice

I haven't had a job for more than two years, and I haven't felt like anything is wrong with playing all the time. The pressure mainly comes from people around you making comparisons, and the traditional ideas of the elders. They are everywhere. Every time you see hot news topics, they are about celebrities in love, getting pregnant and other “fertility” inuendo. Like “invisible creatures” pressuring you to change your mind, the National People's Congress does not need to be like this.
I can just sleep in my own wooden barrel and bask in the sun like Diogenes, or I can live in a cave and think about “Logos” like Heraclitus. Since there has never been a movement of thought that exalts human subjectivity in this land, then I can make it for myself. Lying flat is my movement of the wise. Only lying flat is the scale of all things.

I found this thread that had transcribed the posts as well as a few others, I'll post their translations in the order of the thread.

I started with machine translation then went through and fixed things to make more sense. There may be some things I got wrong but even so this is a really exciting bit of thought!
