PostSubject: The Past   Sat Aug 20, 2011 10:01 am

We live in a culture that urges us to forget the past, to overcome it, to dismiss it as irrelevant.

The family is such a connective artery to our genetic past.

We also witness this reconnection in how race and sex and any natural phenomenon, not directly linked to systemic stability and individual comfort, are dismissed or debased.

In this age sex itself is becoming a matter of personal choice, further disconnecting the individual from nature and offering him the delusion of free-will, when the entire methodology is meant to leave him vulnerable to current exploitation and vulnerable to trends and fashions.

If there is disillusionment then it can be understood as this disconnection form historical contexts, where narratives and official stories are offered to replace it.
The slow degradation of tradition is such a severing...just as is the death of God, which was a source of identification for the masses who could not think beyond a certain level and needed a fast, comforting, self-identifying source.

Experience can be thought of as one's personal history and how this determines his choices and expectations.
But this is the only one permitted, because it can be controlled, whereas the immutable past can neither be changed nor neglected...but it can be dismissed and forgotten.
Erase an individual's heritage, detach him form his bloodlines and sexuality, as these have been determined by an past, and you have fabricated a tabula rasa: an artificial clean slate that can be written upon by any charlatan and clever little mind that comes along.

Instead we have the rise of immediacy.
Immediate gratification, immediate expectations, immediate identifications.
This is what is called shallow.

This obsession with living in the present, or overcoming the past, is this attempt to detach one from his anchoring.
The past is not overcome it is only dealt with and built upon.
Not the self-serving, self-flattering version, but the one which takes courage and introspection and honesty to cope with.

To know thyself is to know this past as intimately and deeply as you possibly can; it is to accept it, good and bad, flattering and unflattering, to, at least, offer yourself the option of coming to terms with it before you die, or doing something about it while still alive.

Those whom wish to dismiss the past, claiming to have overcome it, are those who fear it the most.
It is those who fear that it will hinder their performance when they try to live-up to the ideals of the present...the modern.
It is those who fear that they will not measure up in comparison to others, if their past is taken into consideration....allowing them the pleasure of explaining their failures and their limitations as a product of current situations.

Haven't you said this in the past?

Agreed as always.

Everything in life works out as a nice little test, yielding its fruits where it may.

In this topic I would like to discuss Family in modernity. I have not very much clue on this topic, but can see some of the devastating effects modernity has. Satyrs video lecture on this being the basis for this topic and the high ideals as narrated in the book by Numa Denis Fustel De Coulanges on the Greek Ancient State (which deals with this topic in its first chapters). I see todays parents as in most cases representing the state as well. Some youth turning their backs on their parents, because the parents don't offer love. Others becoming automatons. No burning hearth. Parents don't share their pasts, their stories, but are themselves state enforcers. Of the marxist or capitalist state, whichever way you choose to look at it. If all the advice or "love" one can get from the parents, is some the same like any other "chicken soup for the soul"- shit, one can get on every street corner, then why bother!? Or even pastoral lectures on how to live a proper life and guilt and blame for failing. I see both sides of the coin here. Modernity didn't start yesterday, but around 1900 already and so our parents were already born in this decline and their parents too.

Then let us begin from the prehistoric.
Social mammals offer us a glimpse into how tribes, or early human social unities, must have functioned.

Then, with the advent of sophistication, farming, sedentary lifestyles, and the need to protect property this genetically homogenous unity splintrered inot the extended family:
Mother, Father, Children...Grandparents...sometimes the brothers and sisters of the Patriarch all living in proximity.

The idea of leaving home was not a desirable outcome. A spurned son, the second son, most often the youngest one, may leave his family to create a new one elsewhere.
This practice also preserved the property of the family, keeping it under the control of the Patriarch that most often went from father to elder son.

Modernity breaks up the family.
The children are expected to go off on their own as soon as their early twenties.
An older man living in proximity with his parents or his extended family is considered a degradation...a loser status. The closer to the hearth one stays the more undesirable sexually he becomes.
This is where females are sued as mimetic filters.
Those who do mare excluded, gradually, from the gene pool, from the social conventions.

All are now under the parental control of the state, the institution, making any association, beyond the usual brotherly love and support, undesirable.
The parents are themselves brothers to their children, rather than representatives of a heritage.
All children take on the role of second eldest, third eldest, youngest, and either submit to the degradation of not being directly linked to the Father figure, the state the Church, the God, or they go off, but not outside.
They remain under the protection and control of the parent, at all times.

What they escape is the dominion of the eldest brother, which in this case is the father; the once Patriarch is now the eldest son, awaiting the death of his Father, which lives for longer periods than the lifespan of a biological father, because it is an idea.

I notice how overly friendly everyone is to complete strangers, yet they give their parents to homes for elderly.
In a post office for example, people don't just buy stamps, send letters but it's always connected to some small talk. "Happy New Year". And the other has to top that friendliness by being even more friendly. This is all so shallow to me. And is a symptom of this brotherly love, that is replacing the family. My parents are divorced with new partners. Like children they think they now belong to new families, though they don't have children with their new partners, but have some together. These patch-work families become the norm. Sometimes even more crazy than that. With no connection at all, but "brotherly love". All the spiritual seekers I know are coming from dysfunctional families and are compensating with some sort of Religiosity. And they may even be "doing better" than average, but it ends up in materialism, this "doing better than others". It is really spiritual materialism, no matter how interesting it sounds.

Quote :

I am teaching my parents about this.

Quote :

That hurts. Here in Germany I can kind of relate a little to my post WWII socialist parents, because they wanted to avoid another "Hitler". 1968 was a symptom of the modern decline and no freeing of the mind like it was misinterpreted. I will just post a link of western Osho followers going crazy, worshipping their guru/master (while neglecting their families), but it's rather random, I could post Woodstock or whatever else famous event. I kind of reflected on the Gurus in the past weeks, so that's why. The Guru is another father figure. Like the cult. A last refuge that shapes you in form for the God-State. So that you become a better servant and can manage the pain of existence without meaning a little better (this is actually from 1978 and it lasted till the 80's and is still popular today after Oshos death):



Understanding the impact of 1968 is really essential for us today. Any clues? (besides reactionism to the Hitler Era... and what different currents were important then?)

The sense that the system will collapse is shared by right-wing intellectuals and leftist thinkers alike. It's not about political sides, but awareness. I recommend Kafka's "Trial" from 1914, because it was the first text to state the modern condition of man. Nothing much has changed since then. Thomas Mann ("Der Zauberberg") and Hermann Hesse have similar texts.

In the final throws of life the organism fights with emotional desperation.
It senses the coming end and it becomes angry.

See Alex Jones...See Hitler.
An angry reaction to nature's (female) inevitable victory.

The video is the sense of surrender to the inevitable.

If life must endure then it must become aware and through this awareness gain some level of control.
Not to hate, or love, irrationally, indiscriminately; not to dismiss the ego which makes the perception possible, nor the female for being what she is, nor the lion for being what it is...but to gain some control over it.

To control is to dominate. Like all dominions it has a short life.
This is where resentment comes in.

Chaos cannot be defeated because it requires no effort, no energy, to thought, to come about.
And it is in this temporal direction where life is possible as a (re)action to it.

I spent new years with some of these people. It is a cold dark place! If you kill the ego too early, you become a mess. This is the end-result. Many politicians of todays popular parties here, were hippies back in the 60's and 70's. They took drugs and meditated. Today everything is more separated at least. People are a little more aware and mix traditions and different paths less. But has any of these people reached enlightenment, like their Indian masters supposedly have (living good of their donations)?

Quote :

Buddhism (modern) is an extremely sick religion inhabited by atheists, agnostics, and at best polytheists. They congregate together at 'dharma-centers', which are little more than outpatient mental wards for depressed materialists, and engage in idle chatter about attainment of oblivion and the denial of all things spiritual.
The only difference between a typical 'Buddhist' and the Islamo-Fascist suicide bomber who straps explosives to himself and enters a crowd of infidels, is that the 'Buddhist' has set out to annihilate himself only, thru spiritual euthanasia practices. Both of these types are the worst of demons which roam samsara and plague others with their bestial ignorances." -Dr. Rama T. Guptar


But even in this quote, you can recognize from the terminology used, that there is some hidden truth in these activities. This just goes unnoticed by the majority of westerners wanting to join exotic eastern traditions to be something special, to feel loved, all a lack from their parents, who had other issues (like poverty and wars).

I don't like the term genetic filth (it has to be well defined at least). But I would like to apply it to these people! Even if some of them are "new rich", "successful" and considered "role models" even. There are some good looking chicks. But they are shallow fucks! And it is my weakness and desperation that I go there. "Riding the tiger of modernity" may in most cases be self flattery. You have to be careful applying tools, so that you do not become their tool instead. It is their desperation that I share, coming from a broken family myself. Maybe with me it is more obvious that my family is broken than with most others whose parents stay married long past any fire in the hearth is still burning or efforts are made to keep it lit.

Family today is still worshipped as a value! This is an important fact, I want to state! Not just by conservatives, traditionalists and the new right, even leftists. It is just that family isn't family anymore, when the father is not the authority but the state. And the mother is not the mother, but the second income. And state institutions take over for the raising of the children. So "family" itself has become a meaningless term, like "love". In this topic, I hope we can restore some of the meaning of family.

Would you consider anger the driving emotion of these spiritual "truth seekers" (escapists) like in the Osho vid? That's scary. I never looked at it this way. I feel MY anger if I am amongst these types for too long. (I worked at a place where there were lots of them.) I thought it was just me who was angry and they were all further "liberated" than me. Maybe I was wrong.

Surprisingly most of my anger left once I quit that job there. Very Happy

That's a good analogy.

Family, like love, has lost all meaning, it has lost all substance.
It's an empty word that has been stripped of meaning, by stripping it of its purpose, the reason why it evolved.

I studied some scientology materials and even took a course. These two poles together are workable. If you miss one, you become onesided (out of balance). East and West have to find together. Male and Female. Control of the Chaos. And sense: awareness of the chaos.

Anger is a preparation to a fight/flight reaction to a stimuli.
The stimuli is automatic, as it is an evolution attempting to be more efficient, and so more effective, by relying on a trigger mechanism with no analysis required.

Consciousness requires a perception of divergence which requires a closer analysis, a more detailed observation.
The first reaction to the unknown is this fight/flight, which anxiety prepares the body for. This only shows the negative relationship between life (ordering) and the world (entropy).
We are afraid of the dark because it is better to be wrong towards the negative than towards the positive.

Life evolves on this negative relationship.

Anger is perhaps a preparation for the fight option when flight is no longer a viable option.

The more you know of the other, this unknown phenomenon, that egnages you through your sense organs, the less you feel anxious in regards to it...unless this awareness is accompanied with the awareness that it is a threat and that you cannot escape it (flight). Anger is in preparation for the only other option left.

There is, in the case of humans or modernity, an escape.
Since modernity is based on lies or pretenses, the escape is really an escape from these leis and pretenses...a changing of your perspective when the perspective that confronts you is a fabrication.

The fabrication, this complex of memes, this Matrix, has a defensive counter to this.
It preempts this by attacking you with the very argument against it. It posits the real world as the fabrication.

Take feminism and how it claims that sexual attraction is a matter of culture, when it is the denial of sexuality which is a cultural artifice.
Same goes for many of the ideas participating in the matrices of modernity...these webs of lies constructing a barrier, an institutional noetic wall, between perception and the world.
The mind is prone to accept the lies because it seeks relief from a world of unknowns...and because modern systems allow genetic garbage to flourish, by sheltering it, the masses are the majority who want the lie to be true, because the truth is so frightening and cruel and unflattering.

I've started some contact with my parents. But I don't want it to be play acting. Let's play "house". My brother is an automaton, who thinks everything is okay. Like my buddhists. All play acting.

Let's play "house" together. Picture a little girl playing with a puppet house. THAT is all family is today. With the emasculated "Ken". And "Barbie" works a job too. She isn't hot anymore. A single mom often. Or a feminist man-eater.

My buddhist "friends" want to pity me all the time. (Like Christians, if you tell them you worship Satan, which they assume anyway, no matter what you tell them to their "Gretchen Question" -What do you believe?- other than : Jesus..) Because they make more money than I do (most anyway) and I can't afford all their travels (they travel a lot). I've let them invite me in the past sometimes. So now some think they bought me and own me as their "project".. And I get an extra bit of "chicken soup for the soul"-advice from these deluded fucks. Would they fucking chant buddhist mantras (in Germany) if they had a happy home with mom and dad to go to? Fucking yuppies.

Would you claim everybody without a family is rather dying than living? Hitler came from a broken home. His anger can be psychoanalysed like that. Alex Jones is just a showman in my opinion. I don't think he is all that angry in reality.

Today we use the term "functional family". Like "functional wheel in the machine". A marxist mechanistic terminology. I forgot the sociologists name, but someone pointed out that with Marxism the "Arbeitsteilung" (German for: labor division) started. That's why most jobs are dull today. They are specialized tasks. No one does anything complex anymore, just like little wheels.

See now, why I claim that you are an idealist? The pagan greek family ideal is soooo much more than anything anybody has today. Even the shiny happy people! Especially those, if they are "spiritual".

Islam being the last exception of this general state. (But already declining from what I witness with their younger generation here, who submit to western decay without resistance at an even faster pace than their peers.)

Ana absence of a family is about the absence of a father.
Most try to find a substitute elsewhere: drugs, alcohol, hedonism, materialism, nationalism, religion...any surrogate masculine figure.

This is why you are here, no?

Alex Jones is not angry?

We all have ideals because we all interpret, generalize/simplify a fluid reality into static forms.
We also all need a code to live by; a set of principles to identify with.

So, yes, I have ideals...but I do not call them absoltue nor do I think they are universal. I know what they are: mental projections that give me a direction...a meaning....a purpose...they orient by activities. It is an ordering.

Am I an idealist in the sense that I think my world-view leads to happiness or perfection?
No.
In my mind it leads to a superior order or a more natural lifestyle.

I was fortunate enough to be a part of a strong family unity.
I know of its benefits and I know of its costs.
I also know that without a strong female there is no family.
The female is the keeper of tradition.
A male its representation, allowing him to be more engaged with the current without being swept away by it.

When there is no strong female present, there is no family...and the male representative gets swept away.
And when I say strong female I mean a female totally given over to a masculine ideal.

Yes, master! How to become a cult leader:

Yes. The give away is the title. Alex Jones Show. Other than that it is really convincing.
He "woke me up" in 2009. It got me nowhere. The MRAs at least led me here.

Quote :

And I don't want to weaken your spirit. I just say that from my perspective the ideals in the book "Ancient Greek State" are very high. Very reasonable too. It's just my subjective perspective.

No.

That sounds good enough.

And what are the costs? How is it still managable in todays modern society to keep a strong family unit?

Quote :

I haven't read the book completely yet. But: could you expand on that. What does it mean: a female totally given over to a masculine ideal?

I saw a wedding: western tibetan buddhist kind. And the Lama (who married the couples) said the man should be like some Blue Dorje Buddha. I forgot his name. And the woman like the Red Dakini. They are supposed to represent the masculine and the feminine ideals. The Red Dakini is an athletice type. I would like to know the difference between those modern feminists and a female "given over to a masculine ideal"? Does "given over" mean "submitting"? So is she a motherly figure or a strong masculine type herself? What is it?

"Ten years later, the debate has moved on. I used to argue that it’s appropriate for teenagers to want to know about sex. But now it’s not teenagers we’re talking about. It’s children. Both girls and boys.

While boys are not being encouraged to wear smutty underwear, they are being groomed by the drip-drip effect of the cheapening of sexuality in music, magazines, and, yes, in our own attitudes as adults.

It’s no surprise that this diet of coarsened sexuality is beginning to affect our very young. How young are we talking about? Well, teachers have reported a rise in sexualised behaviour in children aged seven. Birmingham City Council even set up an Inappropriate Sexual Behaviour Unit to tackle this problem.

Over the top? Perhaps not, judging from the experience of a friend who had her eight-year-old son’s friend over for tea. This angel-faced boy, stared at her chest, and exclaimed, ‘Haven’t you got big t**s?’

I had to take a child to task for repeating obscene rap lyrics to my sons, and teaching them dance moves that involved groin-thrusting and grabbing their crotches.

Was it an over-reaction to tell them off for wiggling around in a way I knew was designed to be sexual, or was I making too much of a childish game? My children had no idea of the connotations - except at the most general level. But the rap singers and their record companies certainly do. My gut instinct was that I didn’t want my children doing it.

But it’s the way children are ’sold’ sex now that turns my stomach. Sociologist Frank Furedi has a term for it: pornographication.

He argues that children have always imitated adult forms of behaviour."

Tibetan Tantric Buddhism does Not see male and female as equal.

See the Kalachakra Tantra for example.
Or as Serrano would say it [in Nos], "A woman has no soul. She is soul."

Nietzsche called her Life. And the Dionysian was the Masculine type that affirmed Her in his will to power.
I see the Dionysian and the Apollonian as different degrees of the Masculine.

Evola's Metaphysics of Sex is a good place to start, if you haven't already.
And he was no Catholic!
Evola's God-king was no plotinian monad [that's Guenon], or how you have forcefully (mis)interpreted Satyr's 'looking to the past' as a retropolation back to a One. I doubt this is what Satyr means by reverence for an Ancestor.

My little dove, I have my own mind. Don't twist my words, I haven't forcefully misinterpreted anyone. And I am not a Satyr-sheeple either, okay. I am learning Satyrs viewpoint (it's a continual process). Like I would learn yours, if you had one of your own. And wouldn't be name-dropping all day. Hiding behind your references, like the little lying bitch you are.

I respect Satyr. He's a teacher. And learning from him is a continual process. But I don't want to suck his dick, okay. If you want to be his pet then join Purple Dragon in the Dungeon. But don't waste the space on this forum, with your estrogen soaked citations.

Evil!

If he had stopped after, the first phrase, that would be tibetan Buddhism.
Has no soul. Stop. She isn't soul either in tibetan Buddhism. In tibetan Buddhism there is no soul. Only original Buddhism is Brahmanism.

Nietzsche called her Life.

In my weaker moments I share this romanticism. But I would like the quote on this one too, since I only know of him referring to "a woman" (the archetype, not the actual women) as "the truth" and not "Life", which is a little difference at least. Since one can very well live without "the truth", but not without "Life".

In my weaker moments I share this romanticism. But I would like the quote on this one too, since I only know of him referring to "a woman" (the archetype, not the actual women) as "the truth" and not "Life", which is a little difference at least. Since one can very well live without "the truth", but not without "Life".

What you would like is none of my concern; can't be bothered.
Read Zarathustra.

You have, for a Fact, said Satyr's concept of looking back to the past can be applied/interpreted as the Plotinian One, where your ancestors simply replace the One if you go back far enough. That's how you platonize him and comfort yourself.

Sure. Pick bits of in-formation, systematize them as bloodless concepts and Arrange them alongside the numerous other information you've studied from likewise. And then convince yourself your re-arranging data is you having an 'original' mind. ! lol
Real Philosophy takes/ought to take birth as living, breathing, ideas that pull and weave other ideas from an organic necessity. You touch one point and the whole web must disentangle and fall apart. In your case, Philosophy, Thinking becomes the Casual porn activity of jumping from books to books, getting off on information into a working system that's not going to fall apart just because you've decided one day to do away with some thinker, some thought.

Yea, I'm Satyr's slave; he's a total Man. He makes me proud to submit. Are you jealous, biatch? I know you've said you are a little feminine, and fight with other guys for his attention, but you're not the kind of catfight I'm looking for...? Take it easy. Chip down those nails, you might scratch yourself.

Dragon? You mean the sitting Duck! who doesn't have the ba--s to face me in person... he's scared shite going through intermediaries, complaining like a little girl.

His biggest experience is losing some nice girl called Natalie and because he couldn't dominate her, he taunts Satyr to f--- her. That's how emasculated he is. He wants another's d--k to do the job for him ha! HA! HAA!

He knows I'd tear him, its a good thing he hides there from everyone.

Why would I join him when his idea of domination is offering some chunks of rage writings and a few paragraphs of rape-prose he calls philosophy? Is he a Man? Can he dominate? Can he make me submit to him? Can you? Didn't your estrogen soaked woman dump you for an alpha male? You let her go because You Knew you were not good enough for her. She showed you your place, didn't she. Its why you can't hate her, can you? How weak and pretentious you resign feigning, 'all I want now is some girl who is simple and plain'... in other words, you can't dominate. You and the duck would make a nice pair. You are a pretty flower and he's a rapist without the p--is, so you'll be safe... just perfect! They should put you two together. Fortunately for the squatting Duck, he has a good heart, his heart's in the right place; its why I would want to spare him; you, I can't the same. I can't even say that much.
Loved the personal pleasantaries, arigaaatto, and now that we've established who's who and who's under and who's on top, and who's inside whom and what's hanging out from where and all positions are covered, I have to get back to some real work. And maybe, just maybe you might learn something from me. Dakinis are known for gracing the pure-hearted, without demanding a sacrifice. Know thyself.Wink

All the western female tibetan buddists call themselves dakinis. That is so funny. I wonder who started it and if it has anything to do with feminism. See June Campbell's book on her abuse by Kalu Rinpoche, for a clearer picture. In tibetan the term for woman is "being of lesser birth" and man "being of higher birth". See the book by the Trimondis on tibetan Buddhism. Colin Goldner on the Dalai Lama. As well as Bruno Waldvogel-Frei.

The typical remarks trying to discredit his thoughts. People like to make much of Nietzsche's sister's publishing of 'The Will to Power', and pretend she distorted this work.
This just isn't true; the 'The Will to Power' was compiled from plans, notes, and passages in Nietzsche's own hand, much of the copyist work being done by Nietzsche's closest friend and trusted amenuensis, the musician Peter Gast; and Gast was one of the few who could actually read Nietzsche's handwriting [as well as knowing his philosophy
intimately].
There are passages in WTP that as you say Seem to speak favourably of the jews; if his extremely anti-semitic sister had forged his work, why would such passages remain intact! Its the height of dishonesty to call anything one disagrees with, as a forgery, or mentally-ill notes... this is an old old rumour. His sister simply executed all the notes and plans he had left along with Gast and it was published in 1901 Before the formation of the NS party. How can one take seriously the Stupidity of any suggestion that she "twisted her brother's work towards NS". Its a mindless cliche. As to Montinari and Colli, as if there wouldn't have been any publisher's politics with competing attempts on his sister's part. Its too insignificant - who cared what they say. If it had been a forgery, and n.'s sister somehow managed to manipulate his words - which is assuming she too was as brilliant as him! - ridicuulous assumption, the contradictions would have been blaring and apparent with the rest of his work. And there's no such. Nevermind. Lets assume its a forgery by his sister. What does it matter when the content as in the form we have it, makes total sense, has an aesthetic and philosophical value on its own. However it was manipulated, say, and whoever did it, what does it matter when what's before you can stand as a beautiful work on its own.
Regardless, Will to Power was no forgery. His sister may have been anti-semitic, but she also genuinely loved her brother and wished to see his works preserved in their authenticity.

I know what the Pisces is. Isn't necessary every pisces ends up with a strong jupiter. You don't. The fact that you couldn't keep your political party intact and together, already reveals your jupiter's in a weak placement. Your Mercury is good. Its what allows you to move between and across East and West for example, with the ease you do.
In any case, what makes you think I pointed that out to say, you had a weakness?!
I'm saying your weak jupiter and strong neptune allows you an advantage to pick up streams of thought that are too fine, like the ones that sound on the lower frequency. Evol'a book would have let you pick up the 'undercurrents' on the male/female metaphysics.

Twerp, why do you take it out of context? That line was after I said I don't need psych. books and Freud to teach me psychology and insights into people; my instincts are enough for myself. I am enough for myself in that sense. And Dakini because they show no mercy to the dishonest Wink

Naaah dakini is as you say, a pose - I was just playing, since you used that word to express a male-female balance. I was trying to rag you because the Dakini was never meant to represent the equal feminine counterpart. The skydancer is a personification of the guardian of the thresholds during meditation when you Invade Into another space. So you have to face the wrath of the door-keeper and you have to give her a payment to let you through. So you give all your negativity - your repressions as "blood offerings", as price to move on further. I was just engaging in a mock ritual, asking you to "offer up" your negativities for sacrifice to the Dakini. She won't grace you till you are honest with yourself. Its the same among the Irish/Welsh. Recall Robert Graves, and the part about giving the White Goddess a token, a silver coin she demands before she floods open your mind and poetry flows. Its just poetics.

Reg. how the Dakini was appropriated by the Western Feminists - I think it already had its origins in Tibet, which already has its origins in the Kaula/Shakta cults if you've read Woodruffe. The name Dakini is diff. from what this means to the Tibetans when they address her as Khandro. The latter etymology is independent of any male derivation, while Dakini derives from a word denoting the male.

Yes. In your "Cinematic masterpieces" I smuggled in a movie on the "Nibelungen". Great stories of family and heroic values, tradition.

Yes. This is the curse of modern times. The information era. With the internet. Diminishing borders. Multicultur. And all that. But I think Neoplatonism is an impasse now. I focus on self-improvement, which is Scientology and roots (the "soul") which is Paganism. The real kind Satyr represents and maybe you?

Nietzsche's understanding of Jews can be broken up into 3 stages.

1. Pre-Christianity: The Old Testament he believed was a "mighty book."

2. Christianity: The New Testament he hated.

3. Modern Jews: The Jews of his own time who he believed were noble.

PostSubject: Re: Family in our modern day & age   Fri Jan 11, 2013 7:11 pm

Three basic reasons- according to Satyr - why Nietzsche rejected antisemitism:

-1-
The noble spirit is grateful to his enemies because they keep him fit and because the help him define himself as that which does not wish to be like his enemies.
One is grateful to a virus for maintaining his autoimmune system...because "What does not kill us only serves to make us stronger"

The noble spirit does not despise what opposes him, but is thankful that they do, wishing upon himself powerful enemies to help him become powerful in opposition.

-2-
The rational man does not hate something or someone for being what it is.
For instance...one does not hate a lion for being a lion and attacking a man.
If a man ventures into a lion's territory he should know what a lion is, in relation to himself. If he does not, and does not take the necessary precautions or is arrogant and foolish, and he gets eaten by a lion, it is not the lion's fault for being what it is, but the man's fault for not knowing, beforehand, and totally, and honestly, what a lion is.

This also relates to the infamous MRA movement.
One does not hate women for being what they are, one studies them analyzes them, courageously and honestly and with care...and if he still wishes to engage with them for whatever reason, then he also accepts the risks and the costs for doing so.
If the risks taken lead to a negative outcome, a more costly in reference to the desired and expected benefit, then the man accepts this as a necessary aspect of engaging the natural phenomenon called "female."
One does not succumb to romanticism, considering females as being something other than what they are. If he does then whatever happens is not their fault, entirely, and one cannot blame them for being exactly what they are and for not living up to his ideals or hopes.

Every action with an intended benefit entails a cost...and a risk for a cost higher than the intended benefit.

If a man wants to climb Mt. Everest and does, it is not the mountain's fault.
The mountain is not only honored when one climbs it.
If one chooses to ,live amongst a wild animal, like bears, and is subsequently mauled and deformed, he does not hate bears afterwards....not unless he's a fag, an ignoble, child-like, imbecile.

-3-
To hate the Jew is to buy into his world-view.
The Jew identifies with being the chosen; chosen to suffer on behalf of a God-King.
This is their bonding meme: to be amongst the few, special, ones belonging to a Deity rejected by all other peoples, and suffering the costs of what this means.
See above.
For them this cost promises a benefit; the higher the cost the more substantial the potential, hoped for, benefit.
It is a reversal of reasoning...nihilism.
A rational mind computes the possible costs in relation to the possible benefits and then adjusts its actions to minimize the former and maximize the latter.
In this case the opposite is the case.
Here the Jew, being a product of a history which offered a "ray of light" to the downtrodden and miserable and the hopeless, reverses the computations (Pascals' Wager).
The Jew, the Judeo-Christian mind, wishes to maximize the costs so as to hope for a minimal benefit.
Within the cruelty of nature, he finds a possible alternative to his plight.

This desire to maximize the possible costs so as to ensure a minimal benefit, is a passive-aggressive attitude, based no the wrong assumption that, in the end, nature, the world, reality, balances out.

This idea that all balances out, so that there is no positive or negative victory is founded no the assumption of a unity, a whole, a perfect, absolute Universe...anthropomorphized as a God who overlooks it all and allows Satan so as to make virtue possible.

But I digress.
To hate, as Hitler presumably did, is to accept the emotion as the foundation of activity.
One acts in regards to his emotional reactions...which are automatic, unconscious, intuitive...buying into the paradigm which lowers all to a slow decline towards chaos.
Reason, of course, being a higher, more ordered, state of consciousness.

To hate the Jew is to accept his Cult of Victim-hood and to abide by it.
The Holocaust was a godsend for the Jews, who now prey for the destruction of Jerusalem so as to bring about the prophesied conditions which would usher in the coming of the "true" Messiah - not Jesus.
To hate the Jew is to reinforce his own faith in his own nihilistic delusion. Being hated, simply for being a Jew, only offers credence to the delusion that they are the "chosen ones."

Nietzsche rejected antisemitism

Yes. This is correct. He rejected it. This is important for me to state this facts clear. I haven't read WTP and it will probably stay controversial, but I know this from academic sources (like Safranski) and my own reading. It would have been a complete turn around, if he had turned anti-semite in the end of his life.

Today there is an even more intellectual and highly charged debate about genes and different tribes and ideas about what Judaism actually is, amongst Jews mainly. It is a race of course, with some shared memes, but not on all accounts, like in other groups also. Just a common history. We have more Secularisation. Like within Islam also and Christianity. Humanism with some preference for the own kind. (Supremacist thinking, like there are White Supremacists also.). For this forum jewish sources are important. Some are high IQ people, scientists and so on. Kafka described alientation in modernity.

Nietzsche's understanding of Jews can be broken up into 3 stages.

1. Pre-Christianity: The Old Testament he believed was a "mighty book."

2. Christianity: The New Testament he hated.

3. Modern Jews: The Jews of his own time who he believed were noble.


1. He thought it was a priestly work copied from the Aryans.

2. He wanted to subjugate and exploit it, and affirmed its possibility in different circumstances. The Dionysian is about saying No to nothing, affirming the max. nausea one can. This included Xt. for him. You overcome it not by pushing it aside but by going through it and Overcoming it by affirming.

3. He want to Europeanize them and exploit their merchant-skills For pro-european purposes.

Yes. This is the curse of modern times. The information era. With the internet. Diminishing borders. Multicultur. And all that. But I think Neoplatonism is an impasse now. I focus on self-improvement, which is Scientology and roots (the "soul") which is Paganism. The real kind Satyr represents and maybe you?

Yes, I'm a pagan.
I do not and I doubt if Satyr either sees paganism as a belief in "self-improvement"! Scientology - from what I've read of it and Hubbard as introduced by Hugh Urban is not for me; it sounds like a new Humanism, "we can improve man", "To you there is no limit", "You are formless":
[You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]
"You are not mind or chemicals / You don’t even have a form / You’re in a trap of senseless lies / It’s time to be reborn. / To you there is no limit / Knowledge is your key / Take the route of auditing / And once again be free." [Hubbard, Road to Freedom]

In any case, I don't believe in all this self-help guru kinds and quick and out easy answers to self-formation. Paganism to me is a path of Honour and Honouring those to whom and that to which you feel blood-related. The hearth-fire for instance is what accompanies man to his death. When you light a fire, you gathering Your world together and demarcating the rest. You mark a boundary. Like the sun, when you create the body of a fire, it manifests a world, and you make a call for victory, fame, and lustre, like the sun in the world out.
"At the level of the polis, Hestia's cult symbolizes the alliance between Greek colonies and their mother cities. Her nearest Roman equivalent, Vesta, had similar functions as a divine personification of Rome's "public" and domestic hearths, including those of her colonies; and Vesta's cults bound Romans together in the form of an extended family."
[You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]

To Heidegger, a lamp connected all thresholds and gathered the hearth together, like Hestia gathered all the Greeks into one Family.

In Ister [p.63]: [You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]
he writes, when all the gods moved about inconstantly, the only goddess to remain steady was Hestia of the hearth [or vesta in rome, or paavai in india]. He goes on to say, like the fireplace is the center of the house, Being is the hearth of all beings, and the house of this Being is language and language itself comes from poetry, and
poetry comes from poetic living and poetic living from re-member-ing. --- in the sense of re Membering, weaving someone, a member, together.
Its interesting how he connects thinking with thanking. He says, at the hearth, you not only guard a dwelling, but you also build your
dwelling, by gathering everything/everyone around in the middle. And poetry, etymologically means 'to build'.

"Hestia, you who tend the holy house of the lord Apollo, the
Far-shooter at goodly Pytho, with soft oil dripping ever from your
locks, come now into this house, come, having one mind with Zeus the
all-wise -- draw near, and withal bestow grace upon my song. [H.G. Evelyn-White, 1914]

"Daughter of Saturn [Kronos], venerable dame, the seat containing of
unweary'd flame;
In sacred rites these ministers are thine, Mystics much-blessed, holy and divine
In thee, the Gods have fix'd place, strong, stable, basis of the mortal race:
Eternal, much-form'd ever-florid queen, laughing and blessed, and of
lovely mien;
Accept these rites, accord each just desire, and gentle health, and
needful good inspire." [Thomas Taylor, 1792]

"The lararium, the shrine of the household gods, takes its name from the lares to whose vigilance was entrusted the protection of the household.

"The most sacred, the most hallowed place on earth is the home of each

and every citizen. There are his sacred hearth and his household gods,

there the very centre of his worship, religion, and domestic ritual. [Cicero, De Domo Sua 41, 109]

Also worshipped in the lararium was the genius, the essential spirit of the head of the house: the house was protected by the lares, the family by the genius who guaranteed continuity of generation.
The poet Propertius describes the sad neglect of the lares when they do not receive their daily worship and offerings. The whole daily round of the Roman citizen was governed by religious observance as he offered prayers to his hearth, his household gods, and his ancestors; births, coming of age, betrothals, marriages, anniversaries were all
times of solemn religious acts for the family. And the flourishing vitality of this element of Roman religious belief is illuminated by
the special prohibitions of the Theodosian Code at the end of the 4th century AD:

"Let no man in any place in any city make sacrifice, or
worship the lar with

burnt offering, or the genius with wine, or the penates with
perfumes—let

them light no lamp, burn no incense, hang no garlands."

[J.-P. Descoeudres, Pompeii Revisited: The Life and Death of a Roman Town]

Sad...

When you light a fire, you are 'feeding' it as one of your own, giving a part of yourself, your resources; the reach of its light, energy and lustre sets up an axis-mundi or a relatively stable pole around which You orient, You Order the world on your terms. Its like announcing, "My beginning is here where my ancestors have kept this flame alive, and its from Here, I go now to the world"..., you give yourself a self-orientation and break your slavery or consideration to being determined by another's Initial values. And when you die, this fire [or atleast one believes], this fire carries your Initial. It safeguards your Name, all the Acts and deeds you have done Initiat-ing, starting yourself from that point.

Of course, I've taken the easy example of lamp-lighting, being a woman, but Paganism is essentially Self-Reverence. You make an offering to your self(your selves which have lived as your forefathers and when you retropolate, then, you understand the Worth-ship of Reverencing You in the sun, moon, stars, trees, rivers, etc.) Paganism is not some blind nature worship or about "progressive" self-improvement like how the American Eugenic movement had envisioned it.


Quote :

who's antisemitism he rejected vehemently. And he hated his mother and sister!

Yes, I didn't say any different. He did reject anti-semitism, but he was not pro-jewish either. He understood to be an anti-semite, is to be oxymoronic when Xt. itself is judaism at the bottom and so anti-semitism becomes self-hatred.
And family frictions happen in ALL families; to say he "hated" his mother and sister is baseless.

Quote :

I haven't read WTP. I mean "Götzendämmerung" and other works, where he also spoke critically of the Germans.

Speaking critically of oneself or one's own country is healthy, and it doesn't immediately mean he favoured the jews to his own germans. Baseless claim again.

Quote :

But he hated her and his mother too and disagreed with her husbands political involvement in antisemitism also.

He had fits of rage, and yes, he disagreed with his brother-in-law's views; doesn't mean he hated his family and it doesn't make the WTP a forgery.
And like I said, it doesn't matter whether it is or it isn't [I don't believe it is]; you have before you a book that is excellent and you appreciate it for what its worth; whether N. wrote it or Gast or his sister... doesn't matter. Its a pro-Aryan pro-pagan Greco-German-I.E. book. Its a treasure.

Quote:

I know what the Pisces is. Isn't necessary every pisces ends up with a strong jupiter.


That would be new to me. You of course have an academic source for this? Better a shorter quote, because I can't read so much.

I thought you said you don't read academic stuff?! Such to and fro... restless neptune that hates and has a problem with Boundaries, well-defined Boundary lines.. see how it explains why you have a concotion of beliefs that you want to merge... strong neptune takes you to the intense mystical side, where you do not want to get caught or cling to/within a particular boundary. You'll say one thing today and another tom. depending on circumstances - this can make you a wishy-washy person with no sense of self-hood easy to be carried away in a strong current, Or, this can make you a very adaptive person if you know how to work having this flexibility to your advantage. Its why I am saying, since your neptune is strong, understand how to exploit yourself, where/how to disperse/conserve your energy.
Back to the point, I was saying Pisces is ruled by Jupiter as well as Neptune - the double fish. But, it depends on which house in your charts Your jupiter is placed that will determine the kind you are.

Quote :

Quote:

You don't. The fact that you couldn't keep your political party intact and together, already reveals your jupiter's in a weak placement.


Jupiter doesn't equal success. And I was just helping built a regional base for a little libertarian party. I left when my work was finished. Just in time. My views towards Libertarianism changed since then.

Jupiter is about Confidence, about Good Fortune, about Law, about continuous Expansion and Subjugating and networking people into a web, into a connection, a Meaningful Community, gatherings. It Signifies Leadership, Ambition, while Neptune tries to make you shy away from the spotlight and learn from the shadows. Your mentioning having put on weight in the middle and your struggle with it, is blaring example of a weak jupiter or jupiter transiting through a bad house. You tend to overeat because a weak jupiter means over-indulgence. It means over-eating anything from food - to porn 'consumption', having an over-bearing personality, trying to be someone's saviour, etc.

So your authors just explain the runes? Spiesberger does too. It's about 2/3 explanation to 1/3 how to practice. I don't know about the other titles.

Esoterically in a philosophical sense. List's 'Secret of the Runes' can be found online; although Willigut would be more your taste since you are a Plotinian.

By Racism, I mean senseless hatred against someone for being who they are. Hating Blacks just because they are Blacks, hating women just for being women, for being themselves like the MRAs do.

By Racialism, I mean self-reverence, affirmation of your race and heritage, the healthy exaltation in your superiority and worth which is not raised, by levelling others down in a cowardly way, and for their being the way they are. Its the opposite of Nihilism. Racialism in an individual is his self-pride in 'overcoming' his individuality as a re Present ation of his entire line, of everything that made him/makes him possible; he presences the whole web of it.

What is the hearth-fire, but a flame, and what is a flame, but a straight line... Racialism is maintaing this lineage - a Mobile hearth-fire. This is basically why the "linga" or the phallus was worshipped openly - its a pillar of light/flame - "linga-jyoti", an erect-ion made permanent, worth-ship of the line-age. A little digression.

"The Vestals, alone of all women, were
escorted by the fasces... elevated to the legal status of men.
The seeming paradox posed by the juxtaposition of the symbolizations of the
private and the public as well as its eventual explanation is suggested by true and folk
etymologies of the terms the Romans used to describe them. The virgin is virgo .
The rod bound to form the fasces is virga. Vir is man. A woman who has the
virtue of a man—like a Vestal—is a virago. Fasces means "bound." Fas is divine
law—that which binds man to god? The Vestal's ritual phallus is fascinus , which
means not merely the male organ but also enchantment and the evil eye. It is the
source of the English "fascination" and is obviously related to the fasces , but
how? Clearly, we are fascinated with the phallus. When we are fascinated, are we
spellbound ?
From the standpoint of the political philosophy of G.W.F. Hegel and the
psychoanalytic theory of Jacques Lacan, the public and the private serve
complementary functions and are mutually constituting. Both the law and the
virgin served as the representation of the Other, the external object by which
the Roman man was able to define himself as an acting subject— a Roman citizen.

The Vestal and the fasces cannot be separated because they are one and the same:
virgo is virga is vir ; Vesta is fascinus is fasces is fas. ...Hegelian and
Lacanian theory that shows that property—the law of the marketplace—and the
Feminine are both Phalluses in the technical psychoanalytic sense of the lost
object of desire. They serve parallel functions in the creation of subjectivity
as intersubjectivity mediated by objectivity. Property, according to Hegelian
philosophy, and the Feminine, according to Lacanian psychoanalysis, are fictions
we write to serve as the defining external objects enabling us to constitute
ourselves as acting subjects.

By serving as objects of exchange between subjects, property and the Feminine
simultaneously enable subjects to recognize other humans as individual
subjects—they enable us to desire and be desired.
...In other words, the reason the Vestal is always accompanied by the fasces is
that, at one moment, the Vestal is the fasces—both the Feminine and the legal
regime of property are Phallic . The binding of the virgo as virga to create the
fasces is the writing of the fas —the creation of law and subjectivity. As a
consequence, the actualization of human freedom requires not only the
recognition of property rights but also the simultaneously impossible but
necessary goal of feminine emancipation." [J.Schroeder, The Vestal and the
Fasces, p.3, 4]

That's written by a Feminist, but;

In simpler and simplistic words, Roman Honour/Fasces-ism/Fascism is the saying where the Fire is guarded (hestia or vesta), there is Law, and where there is Law, there is Self-Freedom. Racialism is the Heraclitean relation between the ever-living Fire and Logos. What is this relation? That the bent bow constrained by the max. dissonance/diversity of other beings/other laws, this bent bow [bios] with the max. protraction is Life [bios] at its Highest Harmonie. Max. Freedom[self-direction] is enjoyed when there is max. Fitness, and max. Fitness emerges from protracted enemities; as N. would say - one creates distances without abolishing antitheses; instead one simply does away with the intermediaries and their influence...

Racialism is the Max. Freedom of one's Be-ing in one's own Being-ness. It doesn't slander the Other.

And reg. your other question - diff. between the old and new Right. In short.
It depends on what for you constitutes the 'Enemy'.

The New Right has Benoist against J.-Xt., Faye against Islam, Sunic against commies, Dugin's national bolshevism is against everything that is non-White, Southgate's national anarchism against authority of any form within an auto-ruling/traditionalist White boundary, and Norman Lowell's aristocratic capitalism, Hoffmeister's pro-Israelist National Futurism, so many others. So the New Right has become inclusive of the old Left - Xt., bolshevism, judaism, etc. are no longer "wrong" in themselves; they are contextualized in the self-preservatory reaction against the de-Whitening of a civilization. You have various voices, but all basically feeling the urgency of preserving the White Civilization in the face of Modernity and post-modernity.

It is no longer a Philosophical ideology that Creates Politics like the old right did, but its Practical Politics that exploits philosophical ideologies.

"Self-reverence" and the " healthy exaltation in your superiority"(as opposed to that "unhealthy" supremacism at Stormfront?) based on little more than feeling a historical sense of where you came from... seems limiting and a bit too "mystical."

I agree, that it seems limiting and mystical. However her analysis of the New Right may be correct.

If religiosity isn't a problem in the New Right: Darwinism certainly is a "problem" for them, in that their figureheads: Evola, Nietzsche (according to WTP), (Spengler?) and Francis Parker-Yockey all rejected it for one reason or another. So Religion is something that is even promoted by the New Right, wheras science is looked at very critically. This then gives room to mysticism,and spirituality, like with Rene Guenon/the Tradtionalists/Perennial Philosophers.

The New Right is not a political movement.

Stormfront is not my kind of place; Skadi was.

Mystical? Hardly. That would be the KKK - and that would be Racism. By 'healthy exaltation', I mean something a little more than simply taking pride in your past glory, wallowing in the achievements of your past. Self-reverence means possessing that bearing, that spiri-TED disposition, the drive and the will to carry forward or extend those achievements in your actions and what goals and meaning you give your life through affirming your past.

I proudly announce that I bought a book. For 4 Euros including shipping. It's "Döbler - Die Germanen" (German title). It's a book about the ancient culture of the Germans. Partly encyclopedia. With pictures. (It arrived today! It's awesome!) And I want to thank Satyr and Lyssa for promoting this direction of thinking (Paganism)! I feel like I bought a soul. For a dumb unacademic idiot like me an understandable book on Paganism. And it has the same information on family, like the Numa Denis Fustel De Coulanges book, just from first looking in it. I will keep you posted, on what interesting I find in there. I like to go by original sources (but Edda and Nibelungen are just a bunch of stories and the cultural background must be guessed from the narration), because I kind of started to associate most academics with leftists. One has to distinguish historians though.

The big question at the moment seems to me: WHAT IS CULTURE? Evola criticised this about Spengler, that he didn't define "Culture".
