Well, I guess so..
My philosophy I guess would be something like epicureanism or hedonism... and utilitarianism. It seems like most people believe in utilitarianism, though.
I think that deep down, everyone wants to be happy. That they want to have fun rather than be in pain. Some people say they don't... but I think maybe that's a way of coping with suffering they're sadly going through.
And I guess with being a Hedonist and a Utilitarian, I'm a Determinist, a Feminist, a Transhumanist and I'm sure some other things.
I think that while I'm a utilitarian... ethical hedonism probably explains my philosophical beliefs the best.
Though I guess that's a little bit off topic..
I want to not just do and enjoy what makes me happy. I think that everyone ought to be able to have that. Though... I guess since not everyone likes the same things, so I guess not everyone can all be happy in the same ways.. since some people some people like different things. I'm really empathetic and I value empathy.. but.. I think I have to be good to myself and do what makes me happy and support what makes me happy. Even if other people don't like it.
Part of my raison d'Ítre is liking things like cuteness and androgyny.
Maybe it seems silly. Like it should be more intellectual or have more meaning or something like that.. ? I don't know why those things make me so happy, but there's no reason to worry about it. As long as it doesn't hurt others and it makes me happy then that's a good thing.
I guess what it means is that life doesn't have any meaning. But it doesn't have to have one. I've made my own meaning. And my meaning is feel good and to keep living.
I'm not very good at philosophy, but people like the Cyrenaics are really inspirational and influential to me. I liked their ideas. Epicureanism a little bit less so.
I think that both working hard to do amazing things and improve yourself or make life better for other people, and having simple pleasures are good, too. I think that the hard work and intellectual things are good because we have to work hard to be healthy and enjoy simple pleasures. Like if we don't work hard at science, we can't save everyone and life forever. We have to save the universe and become posthuman, I believe. Or we can't have those simple pleasures and life forever. But I think that feeling good is always the goal we should have for everyone, as much as we can, for now and eternity.
I think that passion and desire are good things. Unlike a lot of Buddhist and other philosophies. Maybe I'm an Extropianist Hedonist? I don't know... I'm not good at philosophy..
Anyway, I think that as long as you're empathetic and you want to help others and share your happiness with them, then it's good to do what makes you happy, no matter what it is. And for me it's things like cuteness. And I love cuteness so that's what I enjoy and support.
I think that anything that makes you enjoy life and doesn't hurt others is a good thing. Because it makes you want to live and enjoy life. It gives you motivation and positive energy. It gives you vitality, I think we should all want to become like unstoppable burning flames of passion that will never let themselves be put out. We were born as anti-entropic energy, and so for us, entropy is a tragic. I think that it's important that we value ourselves and our passions. I think the basic desires which give us happiness is the base that we will build on to save the universe and expand into the infinite multiverse.
I often say that I want to live forever and I think some people misunderstand me. Like I'm not happy now or I'm waiting for something. That's not true. I want to live forever because the feeling of infinite potential and happiness makes me happy. That life is good and is only getting better. That there is always hope. I don't want to ever die because I enjoy life and I don't want these feelings to end. I don't want to stop feeling good.
Oh... wow.. I kind of got off topic... didn't I.. ? I'm sorry...
Anyway... I guess what it means is that I've learned the basic things which make me happy to be alive. Why I enjoy all things I do and why they make me happy. And doing things which makes me happy and supporting them so that they're more popular and supported and prominent is the energy inside my heart the motivates me to wake up in the morning and be healthy and keep live. It's what motivates me to work and try hard.
I'm not going to give that up for anything. So I'm always going to support cute things and moe and things like that. That's my raison d'Ítre, it's the inner fire of my existence.
So if other people don't like moe or cute things, well that makes me really sad, because that's something from the inner, deepest part of my heart. But I'm not going to let them stop me, or stop supporting them.
So I guess something like core interests and philosophies... or something like that...
Um... anyway.. about the character design... I'm actually not that big of a fan. I like her voice and the way she behaves. I want to be cute like that. Though I'm not sure I like her facial design as much.
I still like Leo the best. And Ling Xiaoyu is my second favourite character.
In Tekken 2, my favourite character was Kunimitsu. She was really cute in Tekken 2. And in Tekken 3 my favourite character was Ling Xiaoyu. And she was my favourite character until Leo Kliesen in Tekken 6.
I don't like what they did with Kunimitsu in Tekken Tag Tournament 2.
By the way, I think that someone from another culture and other martial arts would be great. You know... I really like moe and cuteness.. but there's not enough black girls in anime and Japanese things... Iris from Pokemon is great. I love how she's cute and strong. But there's not many others. There's Ayukawa Miyuki... but she's needlessly sexualized. And there's nothing wrong with sexualization... but I wish we could have more characters a little more like Iris instead...
I'd love to have an anime about a character like Ayukawa Miyuki... but without all the sexualization. There's no reason that she had to have huge breasts and that they had to show them all the time, too. :/ And in video games, too. I'd love it if fighting games or Japanese RPGs or other Japanese games had characters like her.
I'd love to play a Japanese RPG starring a moe black girl. There's Ayukawa Miyuki and Iris and Elena, and there's lot of black characters in Michiko to Hatchin...
It would also be neat to have some stories that are about and have things from African culture, and not just Europe and Asia. I'd love to see more stories about African characters and their culture that's empowering. And in fighting games, too. Black girls can be just as moe as white girls and Asian girls. And black boys... too..
I think that there should also be more body types. We have a fat male.. but no fat females. Or much older female characters. It would also be really nice to have really muscular female characters. There are so many characters with large breasts, why can't one of them have pecs?
I just think that Lucky Chloe is kind of fun and I like her better than a lot of other characters. I don't like her top, but Nina and Anna are sexualized, too. I like her a lot better. Nina and Anna have always been some of my least favourite characters in Tekken, actually.
