Nihilistic memes, like Abrahamism and its offshoot Marxism, have an animosity with the past...sum of all previous nurturing = Nature.
their problem with nature is that it determines the present to a degree no nurturing, no brainwashing, no social engineering, can overcome.
Their disconnected from reality ideologies/dogmas, cannot escape the past manifesting as presence, no matter how hard they try to escape the past....past is always present.
They edumucate, the cover-up, they redefine and reinterpret words, the detach consciousness from reality, along ideological lines, suing semiotics, but the past remains unaffected. The present can be changed but not the past....the past is immutable, though the present is where free-will has some impact on what is still fluid, still dynamic, not yet solidified as past.
Thy would require almost as many centuries to rewrite genetic codes, engineering human behaviour, as were involved in its evolution.
Perhaps wilful intervention would shorten the time required to reprogram the human species, but would the product be considered 'human'?
Would what differentiate the homo sapient from other species still be virile and intact?
Would the process of re-engineering the species not warp what differentiates it and distinguishes it as such?

The risk and potential sacrifice does not dissuade the fanatic idealist, because he is willing to do, and give-up anything to escape self, or to extent its survival potential.
Christians have already sacrificed what little integrity and reason they are born with to the remote possibility of eternal life, or to the idealistic integration into an all-encompassing identity, desperately wanting to escape self, and the responsibilities it entails.
Marxism does the same. they reduce everything to production/consumption for the sake of escaping self and personal responsibility.
Though Christians salvaged 'free-will, to enforce their self-flagellating sinfulness that kept them submissive to Church, the Marxist has no use for self-imposed punishments when it is the one enforcing it. Free-will is to be erased, denied, so as to reinforce the ideal of a bee-hive identity, and the converts embraces it as a means to salvation, and regained 'innocence'.
The foundation of victim-psychology is this presumed 'innocence'.
Eradicating past, and eliminating free-will, makes of the individual a helpless victim of the present, governed by 'evil forces' renamed 'capitalists' who stand in the way of Utopian communism, and the uniformity of a collective identity.      
The paradoxes implied b this delusion is part of Nihilistic idealism. its inverting of noumenon/phenomenon, or the denial of the real, and its replacement with idea - ideo-logy - cannot but be based no hypocrisy, producing word-based dissonance.
Abrahamism uses obscurantism and mysticism to deal with them...but secularism can resort to what they've rejected, so they deal with it by force and prose, and obscure, insinuating references, and deferences, creating a theoretical complexity that mean nothing, because they refer to nothing in the world, but only to other minds infected by the same ideology.
Christian canon, with its texts and saints, is replaced by the Communist Manifesto and its cult of personality, and its idols and icons.

Both Marxist and Abrahamic tends towards idealizing iconic personalities and worshipping them as figures with a demi-god status. Lacking a reference in world they must compensate with rhetoric, sacred books, sacred texts, delivered by iconic historical personalities, or placed in the mouths of sacred icons, historical figures - cleansed from their imperfections in death, and protected by time they remain unsoiled, sacred.
Biblical studies Talmudic debates, Marxist theory....all using dialogue, continuous debate, to replace evidence and empirical references.

The real, as a manifestation of past, is the great enemy, the power that keeps them down, that brutalizes and bullies - that victimizes them.
All they have are their accusations, their cries, their emotional reactions, their semiotics.

To achieve this double-standard of being both completely and totally bound by past, and free from it, the Nihilist must exploit the Cartesian mind/body duality.
Sometimes the mind is not determined by past, as the body is, other times it is.
So sex only affects the body, and not the mind, but the sex-less, race-less individual is still a victim of circumstance, and is not free from past.

Christianity deals with its own paradoxes, produced by its own lies, by inventing the concept of 'sinfulness'.
So, though 'god creates man in his own image, and is good and perfect, man is also given absolute freedom and 'chooses' to use this freedom to reject god.
A Christian believes he is 'absolutely free', as is god, from past, to choose his own path, but if he chooses in opposition to the Divine will' he will suffer eternity in hell. His 'freedom' is not as free as it is pronounced, since it is a dualism: God will or Eternal suffering.
A non-choice choice.
Christians invented it to maintain accountability.
Christians retain sex as the only natural identifier, because God has no penis, and at the time of the birth of the dogma man had no technologies to reproduce humans other than the 'natural' one, yet it, along with Islam, rejects all other identifiers for the sake of its propagation throughout the earth; its all-inclusiveness.
But it places the identifiers of believer/non-believer above all others.
Loyalty, love, of god, surmounts all other worldly loyalties and loves.  

Jews invented a inversion of their own.
The tale about being 'chosen' by a god all other tribes had rejected, is a tale metaphorically reflecting historical events.
Having escaped, into the deserts another expulsion, due to their parasitical survival methods, and their refusal; to integrate, they 'chose' themselves, projecting this self-choseness as God.
God became an abstraction of their collective, choosing themselves when all other tribes had expelled them, rejected them. It is why their god cannot be represented, or defined. They are their won god, abstracted into idea.
The Jews retain their 'racial' identifiers, for this reason alone. Their 'dogma' is a worship of themselves, overturning their shame and converting it to pride, their weakness to strength, the real to ideal....the physical to the mental - phenomenon to noumenon.
All this obscured in an esoteric, mysticism, where this overturning, inverting, takes place.
What its superior becomes inferior....the one-god, becomes King of kings.

Muslims found their own Messiah to save them from themselves, from past/nature....and compensated for emasculation with hyper-masculine self-sacrifices.
Rewards of 77 concubines, after death, were allegorical, promising as many wives, to a devout believer, as he could handle - his 'immortality' ensured through their reproduction.

Marxism rejects race and sex, as nothing more than physical.
Paradise becomes Utopian...projected as a immanence, a forever coming future.
Production replaces sacrifice as evidence of loyalty, love, of the ideology, the collective.
Humanity replaces the concept of 'God' as the sacred abstraction, the divine ideal.
Religious piety, becomes productivity, loyalty to the State, and to the communal.
Futurism is the worship of progress....meaning towards the better, closer to god, the ideal.  
Past is left behind, forgotten, denied, or deferred to to preserve innocence and personal culpability.
The ideology cannot be resisted - resistance is futile. It is inevitable.
All will be assimilated into the collective hive-mind, where all are judged by their contributions to the collective, their work, their production.
Something found in Capitalism, as well - supply-demand economics is the foundation of Capitalism, trying to imitate natural selection, but controlling social mobility. The criterion for self-worth is popularity, marketability.
Communism places the standard in the State, replacing the Abrahamic one-god, but Capitalism replaces it with the nebulous wheeling/dealing of communal psychology - supply/demand markets.
Manufacturing demand, controls supply.
Detaching from the Gold standard was part of the process of liberation from the worldly. Production enters the realm of the obscure, the mystical, the psychosomatic. Ideas can be sold and purchased. Abstractions packaged.  
God, the word, enters Wall-Street.
Semiotics for sale.
Money is God. Communal approval is shown through purchasing a product you produce - marketing is how you prostitute yourself to the community, seeking their acceptance, their 'love'. Pleasuring them increases your popularity, your market value.

Tracing a family tree can be done through genetic and memetic codes.
Race is a sub0category of species, and what precedes the emergence of culture, so we can start with the end result, and work backwards towards a root, like we can start with a leaf and work towards the root system of a plant.  

Using this method we find families of languages corresponding to genetic relationships.
Language Families


Each plant corresponding to a different racial group....a different human  genetic sub-category - breed.
Each isolated population, (inter)acting with its environment, produces a language representing this relationship.
Genes extend outward as Memes.  


The Indo-European family.


The Afro-Asian Family


The Sino-Tibetan Family

Adopting the 'tree' metaphor we can place the emergence of semiotics, of the meme, at the roots, underground - subterranean, representing the (inter)action of genes with environment that produce races, and species, before they develop a complex language.
The stem, the tree-trunk, would be the emergence from the phenomenal, the subterranean, of the noetic, the abstract = noumenon.
Growing upwards, toward the light, towards increasing abstraction.

The branches feed from the sun (mind), while remaining true to their grounding (body) = noumena are extension and reactions to phenomena.
Language represents this reactive relationship to world.

Nihilism would be a corruption of this process, this model.
It disconnects from the tree, like a seed, but does not float and pull itself into the ground, but contradicting its programming attempts to hijack the process and grow roots into the air.
Failing to do so, it growing inward, into itself, or it latches on to other floating seeds, creating a cocoon, around itself.
But let's not return to the dis-ease of Nihilism.
What matters here is the gradual emergence of language, reflecting a culture, that is a product of a genetic group interacting with its environment.
This (inter)action evolves, over time, into a meme, a culture, a way of relating to life, to reality, and to self = spirituality. It evolves into a social organization with its symbols, rituals, definitions and validations....its interpretations.
Each language reflects in its grammar, its vocabulary its structure the entire history of the meme's evolution, s well as its corruption, decline....symptoms of the gene/meme decline.

Like genetic code, it cannot be erased without corrupting the entire organism....but it can be repressed, left to atrophy, segments becoming inert, others triggered to express themselves.

Returning to Nihilism and using the tree-metaphor, we can say that Nihilism is the product, like I said, of emerging self-consciousness producing anxiety. So, the seed noetically frees itself from the tree and perceives its origins, its self, its past (the tree from where it detached) from an noetic idealized distance.
It feels vulnerable, small, weak, and it cannot trace the tree down into the subterranean roots.
Know Thyself remains incomplete...since there are no absolutes.

Nihilism refuses its origins, denies the tree. It imagines it is detached from both tree and mysterious unseen root-system.
Its desire to detach begins to have an effect...as it proceeds to disconnect it begins to atrophy and become ill, slowly starving.
Its goal is to grow into a different kind of tree but not by returning to the ground, and sprouting its own roots, but by remaining airborne, and sprouting ideological, noetic, roots, in the air.
Unable to survive it connects with others like itself, creating a self-referential, self-feeding, collective....a pyramid scheme. One feeding no the others.

The parasite, within this context would be something like this:


We've alls seen fungi living on trees, feeding off them.
Again...from genes to memes....from naturally evolved survival strategies we get memetic survival strategies. In the photo the parasite is harmless, living on the surface...but there are strategies that bore their roots into the tree and taps into the energies it is pulling from the ground.
This would be the gypsies...for example, annoying but harmless...an eye-soar, but bearable.
An example of Commensalism....but there are two other kinds...one is Mutualism and the other Parasitism.

Evolution teaches us that stress necessitates adaptation. we can assume that a Parasite can evolve from Mutualism, or Commensalism.
One contributes to the tree as much as it takes from it....the other gradually saps it from its life-energies and eventually kills it.
It may even evolve a method of imitating the tree it is growing on, and feeding off...appearing to be part of the same tree. A way of protecting itself from the tree's defensive methods.

Studying the linguistic divisions, and families, we can see distinctly not only racial divisions, but how each meme changed and was changed when it was absorbed into a different racial group.
We see how a meme born from the genetic relationship, and history, was affected and affected an alien meme.
So, we see how Judaism coming in contact with Hellenism produced Christianity, and was changed by it, splintering two variants, two sides of the same coin, Cultural and Social Judaism, or Zionism and Marxism, how it morphed into Islam when it came in contact with other Semitic Tribes, the Arabs, and how Islam morphed when it infected the Aryan Persians, producing the splintering of Sunni and Shia.

We also see how Nihilism evolved among the Persians, into Zoroastrianism, and how it developed in an alien tribe of Semites producing Judaism.
Memes evolve.
First, by contact with environment, and then through contact with other competing memes...they behave like living-organisms, because they emerge out of living organisms, and are but the externalization of their understanding of self, or an externalization of their relationship with world - art.

Language is an extension of DNA that can be transmitted, across space/time, using patterned sound and then semiotics.
Like DNA it can fertilize another, and gestate, giving birth to a new synthesis.
Meme is an extension of Genes....ergo Language/Semiotics is an extension of Genetic codes/DNA.

Wikipedia wrote:
The two DNA strands are also known as polynucleotides since they are composed of simpler monomeric units called nucleotides.[2][3] Each nucleotide is composed of one of four nitrogen-containing nucleobases (cytosine [C], guanine [G], adenine [A] or thymine [T]), a sugar called deoxyribose, and a phosphate group. The nucleotides are joined to one another in a chain by covalent bonds between the sugar of one nucleotide and the phosphate of the next, resulting in an alternating sugar-phosphate backbone. The nitrogenous bases of the two separate polynucleotide strands are bound together, according to base pairing rules (A with T and C with G), with hydrogen bonds to make double-stranded DNA.


DNA is based on the a the synthesis of four kinds of nucleotides....like language is composed of symbols, in Linear-A, Linear-B, image based, developing into the phonetic kinds composed of 24-26 etc.

Each can combine with the others, into different sequences, creating memory.
When triggered they repeat the sequence (iterate), and recreate processes that have proven to be 'fit'.
Language develops in the same way, preserving sequences that offered the user an advantage.

A simple binary method of ON/OFF, systolic/diastolic, evolves in a quadric code system.
The simple dualistic 'good/bad' develops in linguistic intricacies that exceed the slower to evolve DNA method.
This gradually becomes the mind/body conflict. Mind evolving faster than the body can.
This is both its advantage and the source of its greatest follies, particularly when natural culling is being controlled and/or reduced.

Mathematics is based on the simple 1/0 binary methods, using fractions to represent fluidity - representing Flux. Order/Chaos.
Patterned/non-patterned energies.

Note: vowels are the most important part of language.
Consonants represent the sounds of nature, imitated....vowels distinguish, separate.
Verbs are the most important aspects of a sentence....the Greek language has 7,000,000 of them, and French is all about conjugating verbs.
Verbs reflect cosmic dynamism.

Genes perpetuate through the organism.
The organism need not know nor understand. It behaves according to the genetic code.
Awareness would inhibit or decrease the efficiency, and therefore the effectiveness, of the behaviour.
It feels the genetic programming as an internal drive, an insatiable need/desire.

Same applies for the meme.
The meme self-perpetuating via the individual. Knowledge and understanding are not only unnecessary but would inhibit, or make the performance less efficient, and therefore less effective.

Self-Awareness leads to insecurity, and vulnerability, before it can develop into superior force through focused, controlled application of aggregate energies.
Mind can inhibit the body, attempting to control its automatic behaviours, reactions, and drives.
The degree to which it achieves this produces the side-effect of neurosis.

The disease does not require a centralized controlling agency... it hijacks the organism's natural drives, processes, and redirects them. The infected organism does not have to become aware of what it is doing, and why. Viral DNA usurps the host's DNA.
Like a computer virus...everything is automated, not concious.

Gene/Meme begin as a synthesis and then diverge, as the meme come sin contact with other gene/meme synthetics, producing cross-contamination.  
Contamination is relatively recent and so cannot usurp the genetics that have taken millions of years to develop.
The meme is like a small but dynamic garment covering a a mind/body that is not altered by it but enhanced or hidden.
The garment can adapt, imitate, pretend and hide, selectively and strategically enhancing and hiding that mind/body's inherited traits.

The different tribes/branches of the Indo-European, Aryan, family tree.
Each language corresponding with a tribe, a genetically identifiable population.
The familial relationship indicates a shared past....past=nature...nature=sum of all nurturing....nurturing=interaction of individuals and environment, mind/body and world...evolving into idea(l) relating to real.

Matrilineal inheritance of identity could b a parasitical adaptation. Paternalism absorbs the alien, maternalism is absorbed because it identifies with ideology (memes), more than through blood (genes).

Cross-Contamination occurs. For example the Turks are mongoloids who have mixed with European blood, but retained their mongoloid meme producing a dissonance between gene/meme. Another example are the Semites.

For a meme to develop and remain distinct the same circumstances applied to the evolution of species and sub-species (named 'races' in the homo sapient specie).
A population has to remain isolated, genetically, for the process of separating from a common ancestry to begin.
If the isolation lasts long enough, or the environmental stresses are adverse threatening enough, then genetic splintering proceeds and accelerates until a total split develops where no remixing is possible.
A meme may evolve in the course of the population's evolution, and its (inter)action with the particular environment.
A culture and a language emerge, and like genetics the meme will be distinct from other memes, expressed not through genetic codes manifesting in appearance, but in memetic codes, semiotics, manifesting as culture.
A memetic family, like the Indo-European, will not only have common physical traits, but common linguistic traits.
Traits that will distinguish it from other memetic families.
Just as a family will be the same, yet slightly different, but their relationship will be easily distinguished when placed within individuals of other families....or juxtaposed against a different family.



Each family will have developed some characteristics, some traits more than others, facilitating specific survival strategies within specific environmental conditions....in genetics.
In memetics they would have developed different ways of relating to environment, attitudes, ways of thinking.

Gene/Meme is inverted in Nihilism to Meme/Gene.
The Real/Idea(l) inverted to Idea(l)/Real.

Logos is the point of inversion. The symbol inverted so that it no longer connects noumenon/phenomenon but reconnect noumenon with another noumenon.
Noumena represented by symbols/words, referring to other ideologies, represented by symbols/words.

Hellenism/Judaism are the representative memes of this contrary way of relating to world.
The Greeks a culture that embraced reality, worshipped nature, used logos to connect and refer to world, building ideologies founded on reality....and the Jews who are anti-nature, anti-reality, anti-world, using logos, language, semiotics to detach and reconnect to an alternate world, an alternate, negating the real, reality. An attitude more populist/popular given the decades of sheltering and man's existential anxieties....and the product of an emerging self-consciousness seeking relief outwardly, and failing to find any inverting and seeking relief inwardly.
Quantity usurping Quality.      
Hellenism gives rise to [You must be registered and logged in to see this link.], as culture births civilization....and Zoroastrianism, via Judaism gives rise to [You must be registered and logged in to see this link.].
Its the old Heraclitus/Parmenides debate: even here the monists holds an advantage over a primitive, developing conciousness, because the noumenon holds sway over the psyche, and the mind uses binary logic to conceptualize the fluid. The human psyche is inclined towards the promises of usurping the uncertain apparent with the more malleable, certain abstraction. Idea(l)s are more powerful when confronted with an indifferent Real.
Christianity, Marxism/Zionism, post-modernity are the by-products of memetic cross-contamination, affecting the genes indirectly.
The current (modern) man-made environment favours nihilism. Enclosed spaces (limited possibilities/probabilities), increasing populations of dubious genetic quality (sheltering), necessitating specific traits (feminization).
But nihilism is its own contradiction. Lying and pretending may work on concious beings whoa re swayed by word-games, emotional criteria, and can be manipulated, but it does not affect world/reality/nature.
Using proxies to create a protective shield, protecting self from world has its limitations - its risks and costs.

There are those who are αυτοφωτοι, brilliant, exuding light, spilling out of them indiscriminately.
We associate this with the sun, where inner processes, internal turmoil, produces light and heat, illuminating space/time.
We also associate this with the masculine, which for the Greeks were the ones who birthed, generated life, procreate.
Apollo is its symbolic Deity.
As with genetics so too in memetics.
There are cultures that birth, create, and are more masculine.

Then there is the passive element, associated with the moon. They reflect what the sun, another, produces. their only contribution is to adjust themselves to selectively reflect, focus, this light.
The feminine is associated with this role, and is a means for a male genes.
The moon is dark, associated with the occult, the mystical.
It needs a sun to be noticed, to make its presence noticeable.
As with genes so too in memes.
There are peoples, cultures, who adopt this same passive imitation, reflection, mirroring.

From [You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]we can appreciate language, as a externalization/expression/representation, of a meme, and the meme as a connector or dis-connector, with degrees of connectivity, with the experienced, apparent, world/reality.
Being trained (educated, raised within a specific meme/culture) is similar to placing a lens between the senses and the world.
A lens that can accentuate or selectively block, or completely block sensual data, allowing the mind to fabricate its reactions, from stored memory, and project them as alternate realities/worlds.
We can imagine this intervention as the lens's tint, or convex/concave shape warping sense data, and also projected abstractions.
Moderns tend to begin from a framework of predetermined lenses, gathering sense data in accordance with their interventions.
These interventions, represented metaphorically by a lens' convex/concave shape, are what we call allegories, metaphors.
With Nihilists the lens itself, and its shape, replaces the world/reality beyond it.
The sense data are reflected back to the eye, by the lense, that permits a small, or warped image of the world. usually vague, hazy, permitting it to mirror back to the sense organ its own desired allegories, shaping the mind's conception of reality.

The evolved eye (genes), with their a priori methods of interpreting/translating stimulations (interactions), and the nervous system with its own translations/transmissions of the sense data the sense organ collects and has already interpreted into a form it can transmit to the mind, are intervened by an extra layer of interpretation/transmission, the meme (culture, traditions).
Like eye-glasses intervene between eye and world.
With meme, the lens also intervenes in the process of externalizing the abstractions. so it has a dual purpose...like magnifying glass, it selectively focuses and accentuates parts of the observed, leading the mind towards a desired way of thinking - method, way.
With Nihilism the method replaces the world.
The lens IS the world, rather than a means towards engaging it.  
An adjustment of the Platonic cave allegory.  
Art, the method, the metaphor usurps the world....ideal replaces the real.
1/0 are the binary adjustments of the shape of the lens, based on motive.
The 'nil' like darkness, serves the Nihilist well. Just as black is a useful non-colour for the painter.
Black is for the artist what 'nil' is for the thinker. The 'nihilist' uses it with artistry to create shadows, block portions of reality, to create an alternate reality.
With it he can tint his lens, or block reality, or the medium to engage it, light. With carefully placed shadows he can then manufacture a more desirable, to him, reality.
Just as a painter's method is used to represent a scene, in the world, or project a reaction to a scene, philosophy is also determined by the individual's public and private motives, and its motives are determined by his/her known and unknown, acknowledged or not, needs/desires.
Most of the time moderns have no clue what their real motives are. They call this their mystique, or their spontaneity. Women are prone to such tactics of lucid or intuitive ignorance, convincing males, for centuries, that there's a mystique to their essence no man can ever understand, because they can't understand it completely.
Romanticism and many forms of Idealism depend on such ignorance and self-deceptions. The practitioners are usually proud of their deceit and ignorance, because they intuitively know they would not be able to tolerate the real.  
 
Spiritual methods, ways of dealing with reality, are offered as coloured glasses with shaped lenses.
This is the meme. An overlaying layer of varying degrees of translucency, each with its own concave/convex shape, and blocked out by strategically placesd shades of darkness, or focal points of space/time.
The mind is encased by the meme.
Everything that it experiences is filtered through it, or placed within its contexts after-the-fact. Just like a film editor selects scenes, and how to place them in a movie sequence, or how to digitally alter them to accommodate a fiml's underlying message to an audience.

I think Blackmore would be fascinated by the idea of a memetic parasite.
A host infected by a memetic virus, not repelling the virus, not trying to become healthy, but embracing it, accepting it to become a symbiont by merging with it.

Returning to the lens metaphor....
What happens when a glass lens is darkened on the side facing reality, towards the world?
For whatever reason, either intentionally, or because the lens is so sensitive, so fragile, that the sun's heat blackened it.
It becomes a mirror.
no longer a lens multiplying the eye's sensitivity, or distorting its vision, towards the better or worse, but a reflective surface.
This is the paradox the nihilists are trapped in.
A glass cocoon reflecting them back to themselves.
They do not see a world on the other side of the lens - there is no objective reality, for them. They only see themselves looking at themselves, and if the glass surrounds them, engulfing them in reflections of self, there's an infinite regress.
They assume that all are conveniently, and comfortably trapped in a memetic glass cocoon, reflecting their subjectivity back to them.
They want to forget there is something beyond the darkened surface, on the other side.  

But they also intuitively know that glass shatters, no matter how thick it is. So, they want to surround themselves with surfaces, a labyrinth of mirrors, like those one finds in village festivals.
A house of mirrors - inter-subjectivity.


Nihilists trapped in the paradoxes of their own making.
They prefer the glass walls, the ambiguity, the confusion. They want to run in circles for a lifetime, pretending they are making progress.
Everywhere fragile glass painted dark, on the outside surface.
A memetic womb.

Taste is how mind interprets appetite; appetite is how body interprets need; need/suffering is how mind/body interprets existing.
Mind is an extension of brain, which is an organ within an organism, an organic hierarchy; a physical body: brain/nervous system is where the translations from the physical to the mental context, occurs; the organ of synthesis.
Appetite is translated to taste, and addiction is translated to obsession. Also where need/desire can be translated to want, and wants can be socially manufactured.
Organ hierarchies determines which organic needs, and what degree, will dominate. This relationship determines taste, and how it changes from moment to moment and from age to age.
Pleasure is the momentary release/relief from interpretation – an ephemeral ecstasy which, depending on its length and the minds processing speed, may be experienced as an epiphany, a fleeting moment of profound clarity.
Some may try to replicate this using chemical means, numbing need/suffering so as to release the mind from the external so that it may delve into itself.

Need = lack - experience of existing within Flux (interactivity) - by-product of temporal attrition.
Desire = excess, due to the consistently efficient/effective gratification of needs.

Wants = synthesis of need/desire, focused upon object/objective.
Wants can be manufactured by conspicuously or inconspicuously linking them to needs/desires.
Ambition is a socially manufactured synthesis of wants.

Nihilism, by detaching symbols/words from their worldly references, just as it detached money from the gold standard, serves the manufacturing of wants that control the masses.
For example, an individual may obsessively want a sport-scar, unable to fully grasp what needs/desires it promises to gratify.
By detaching symbols/words from their references all becomes an ambiguous ideological matrix, engulfing the individual and preserving his confused lostness, seeking satisfaction without any focus.
One product replaces another as an object/objective promising satisfaction for needs/desires that cannot be identified precisely, but only felt as a longing, or a lack.
The concept of an 'absolute' is such a product. Used in multiple ways, mostly as an expression of high probability, in a sea of possibilities. Its primary symbolization is one of juxtaposition of objects/objectives in relation to each other, suing self as the standard.
My own use externalizes the standard as a theoretical singularity: immutable, eternal, indivisible, and forever absent.
This 'absence of absolute' is another way to define 'need', and is the foundation of Nihilism; within its binary context it is represented by the 'nil' in relation to the absent absolute 'one'.
1/0 is the binary code of nihilism.
Every nihilistic philosophy, spiritual dogma, theory, presumes it as its foundation, and claims to have resolved the dichotomy, and the linguistic paradoxes it produces when understood literally and not figuratively; not approximately, but absolutely.
Certainty is another word for the absolute. Not degrees of probability, but an absolute certainty - an implosion of possibilities into a theoretical absolute probability = singularity.

Certainty is to conviction, and to judgement, what omniscience is to knowledge/understanding, and to awareness; omnipotence is to power; freedom is to the concept of free-will, and to choice; need is to gratification, and to pleasure; becoming is to Being, and/or man is to god, as defined by Abrahamic nihilists.

All indicating a relationship of 'self', the continuum held together by memory, and world, a continuum of causality, a constant interacting Flux of dynamic processes, some predictable (order, pattern) and others entirely unpredictable (chaos, randomness).
Within these varying degrees of uncertainty man longs for absolute certainty - confidence to deal with the insecurity an emerging self-awareness produces.
Wants can be manufactured and presented as consumer goods, promising certainty of outcomes, in relation to desires, rooted in needs.
Layer upon layer, lost in translation, and semiotics; exploited by misers and charlatans.

Lost in Translation
The mind's binary code (1/0) is unable to fully process the body's four base code. It reduces the body's code to dualisms of either/or, eventually converting (translation) it to the linguistic version of Binary logic (1/0).  
The body has already reduced multidimensional, and continuously fragmenting, space/time into four digit code [GCUA], representing four dimensional space/time.
The body can process more data than the mind can, but at the cost of clarity. It can only sense; intuitively, viscerally perceive.
Mind sacrifices breadth to achieve higher awareness, reducing the four to two, substituting what is lost by using fractions, linguistic allusions, allegories and metaphors.

With every advance in precision and clarity, a loss of possibility, of breadth is sacrificed - data lost in translation.
