I was mulling it over in my head after having a few dreams of some rather... unsavory possibilities of the apocalypse caused by a person, a group or universal timed extinction. And then being the only person around to see the end result before either falling to natural causes or eternally wandering the earth, or what's left of it.

Point is: Where do you see the INTP at during the 'final hour'. Being the cause of it or the bystander of such an event? Any methodological processes or a spontaneous bout of insanity over the 'big red button'? Also, any fantasy ideas would be welcomed: Fallout, Resident Evil, ect.

Personally, I see myself becoming the Lich King (if magical artifacts existed with that much power) and laying waste to the world if I became cynical and jaded enough. Taking out a cursed sword and helm to become an harbinger of (un)death and icy chill. Kind of like Christmas at the Nixon Compound. My first landmass target would be the African continent, then northward to Europe / Russia, afterwards double back east to Asia...

Anyway, I would take continent after continent, leaving Canada for last.

Not like anyone would notice the 'before and after' when Canada is overran... :dry:

I could see an INTP being the indirect cause of the destruction of world by creating a device to help human that someone else turns into a weapon. Kind of like when Einstein wrote letters to politicians in regards to his theory being used to build the atomic bomb. Either that or one of us goes bonkers and just decides to level everything while the rest of us just sit around watching the aftermath whilst drinking beer and roasting hot dogs and marshmallows over the fires of the burning debris.

Your first paragraph reminds me of that episode of Futurama where Bender, Fry, and the Professor are testing the time machine and get to watch the universe decay. I wouldn't mind that, actually. Just make sure you shoot Hitler out the window on the second time around and don't overshoot the date.

I think the INTP in such case would be 'facepalming', knowing his idea was put to work wrongly by some other type, seeing that it (again) lead to disastrous proportions :laughing:

Or maybe the idea was meant to be disastrous and they managed to make it harmless... :dry: I knew I kept those 'SJ's' on a leash because of reasons like this.

Knowing the INTP, in that type of situation, we would forget the date because we would be overwhelmed by 'Oooh shiny' and try to visit every day before / after that specific date just to see things.

Wait, something is coming to me. Yes! Yes!! Yes!!! We will destroy the world by making every shiny. Cover everything in the reflective side of aluminum foil, even the trees so they can have foilage. That is not a typo. Everything will starve because it's all aluminum and there will be crashes and explosions and thermite reactions. We will destroy the planet by aluminization. So very shiny and distracting all at the same time. Can't miss it. Nope, nope, nope. The destruction is the distraction and the distraction is the destruction.

You reminded me of Soul Calibur. Or specifically, 'Elysium's version' of order in Soul Calibur which involves coating the entire world in crystal in order to maintain order. I mean, there can be order if no one is able to move! Or breathe!

An INTP's darkest hour? This one comes to my mind. No world conquering or anything, just binge drinking, Fe and Si all over the place and simply a ******* mess of a human.

A personal hell.

Anything voiced by Ron Perlman is cool. Also while 'the lich' is cool, the 'Lich King' is colder. Nothing like causing a war on multiple fronts of Azeroth by being a brilliant tactician. To inspire enough fear that creatures stronger than the lich king and was originally to be his jailers run in fear of him. And badass enough to almost win if it was not for some 'Deus Ex Machina' crap from Tirion.

the intps will be trapped on social media...

a labyrinth in which they'll attempt to outrun the onslaught of special little snowflakes (those introverted sensors, feelers, judging types)

for pointing out the flaws in their logic... (they hate that, oh do they hate that... )

tossing kitten bombs at the judgers,

sending the feelers through landmines of triggering material with no trigger warnings,

and finally, after locating and extorting the surviving member of a fashion magazine... pointing out that the sensors are sooo, last season to which they'll be too distracted ritualistically cannibalizing each other to give much of a toss about you..

where finally I settle with an excess of caffeinated products, in some old dusty library, busy necro'ing the archives and getting pissed off at things that happened more than century ago...

Isn't it, tho? I was explaining to some kiddies, the other day, how he caused a nation to cream their panties in the 80s.

 


I love how the "He comes from a secret place far below the city streets.", is just a gloss over alternative for "He comes from the sewers".

Doesn't sound so beautiful anymore, does it? :laughing:

well, no, not beautiful...

but it works better for rough trade, bordering on porn, fanfiction...

and easier to market for horror/tragedy porn of various charities about the street people, discarded from society, in the human waste-lands... that will still pull on people's apron strings...
