Only the homo sapient specie has the ability to produce such a extreme contradiction between body/mind, because only the human can become nihilistic.

Imagine, the mind being trained, from an early age, to despise the physical, or to deny its veracity, as if the case with many Nihilistic ideological variations; imagine a mind being taught to not trust its own senses, feeding into its desire to escape the apparent, as it pertains to itself.
We call this mind/body dissonance.
It is only possible for a human, and any organism that has developed self-consciousness to a similar level, to believe judge in contradiction to its own body.
This is most often pronounced among females and emasculated males, because these are more easily integrated into any meme that is popular and self-serving - more easily seduced by ideology that offer a theoretical 'escape' from natural order.
Only human females can be simultaneous intellectually, or pragmatically, attracted to one type of male - a socially idealized type - and a physically attracted to a type that contradicts the first - a male with the physical, and mental attributes of symmetry and proportionality - female 7/10 hip to waist ratios become chest to waist ratios in males; mental symmetry and proportionality encompassed by the term 'manliness', manifesting a demeanour of calm authority and an easy going humour that can laugh at itself.  

Most often those who attain positions of high status in modern systems are individuals who are ready and willing to submit to popular ideals, and to go through the process of vetting, when its loyalty and commitment is tested over long periods of time and under conditions of duress.
An example would be a modern politician, seeking the popular approval of brain-dead masses born and raised within nihilistic idealism. Such a 'man' would prostitute himself to the 'lowest-common-denominator' attempting to not 'agitate as many of his constituents as possible; presenting himself as the most harmless to their shared well-being, while insinuating all kinds of outlandish possibilities to manipulate their vanity and inspire hope.

The process is similar to that of cultivating erotic intimacy - making the feminine feel comforted and un-threatened.
Seduction on a collective level.  
Gangstad, Steven W. –PhD wrote:
Flirting is a negotiation process that takes place after there has been initial attraction.
Attraction - product of harmony. Attraction indicates a low degree of repulsion.  
Therefore, to attract another, who is least like you, the practice fo self-repression is essential, i.e., duplicity.
If the goal is to simultaneously attract as many as possible then the process requires vagueness - insinuating, obscurantism, allowing the other's fantasies to fill in what you imply but never clearly state.

Philosophy is practised, in Modern times, as if it were politics.
Never exposing the participants to what may sound 'negative'; always remaining obscure but full of triggering words, allowing the imagination to project its own desires into the hypothesis.

Words chosen to trigger 'positive' reactions, preferably in-line with popular memes - modernity is inundated with market values, so a marketing lingo is necessary to become popular - supply/demand dynamics.
The broader the target audience, the less quality will have to be included - quality inhibits quantitative appreciation, just as discrimination inhibits all-inclusive ideologies; just like light inhibits uniformity.

From gene to meme.

Every tribe developing the culture appropriate to their own survival methods - a culture representing a relationship, over historical space/time; relationship of a people with an environment.
A culture reflected in the symbols/words, in the semiotics they adopted and applied to facilitate their niche survival strategies.
Language reflects this historical context.
It's current application reflecting how this relationship has adapted to present circumstances.

From gene to meme.
Some memes evolve to be predatory, some adopt the strategy of prey, others become parasitical, scavenging, etc.
Languages - semiotics - evolve to reflect and facilitate these strategies.

Concealment is the strategy of herbivores and herd organism.
Revealing and perceiving (discriminating), is the strategy of predators and scavengers.
Parasites integrate inconspicuously, so as to feed off a host. Their strategy involves fooling the host that it is a part of it for as long as possible - numbing or placing the host in a state of slumber, is ideal.

Successful strategies are imitated, coveting the effects without overly analysing the causes.
A mind imitates a performance, expecting the same results.

As such, Jesus' influential sermons were imitated and ingratiated into an inversion - by parasites. He become an icon representing a new variety of Church and Pharisees, when he rebelled agaisnt both.
Is not the same occurring with Nieatzsche's polemics agaisnt Christianity, and Abrahamism?
Is he not posthumously becoming an idol for a new World Order version of Abrahamism; a reborn Christianity?
Have not his positions been integrated, suing linguistic tricks, into a Christianity 2.0, hoping to 'correct' the faults he exposed?

It isn't irrational to assume that each relationship developing its own type of survival method, its niche environment, would also cultivate the appropriate tools - traits - that would enhance performance.

For the predator, light and sight, are vital.
For the prey, confusion and concealment is vital.
For the parasite, deception and manipulation is vital.

It logically follows that a people's strategy will shape its semiotics; its language adapted to its method of survival.

A predatory method would use language to reveal, to distinguish and discriminate.
A prey would use language to conceal, to flee, to produce uniformity.
A parasitical strategy would be a mix of both, i.e., both predator and prey. It would adjust its language to imitate, to pretend, to exploit.

Predator confronts, kills and consumes.
Prey flees or fights.
Parasite evades confrontation by remaining inconspicuous and draining its prey.

Plants are the sun's energies made tangible - relationship of earth sun, manifested organically.  
Prey, usually herbivores, feeds on plants - solar energies.
Predators, usually carnivores, feed on herbivores - their accumulated over time solar energies.
Parasites do not feed directly but via a mediator - both predator and prey; a proxy - feeding no the excess of its host's consuming and processing.


Predation is currently prohibited, so that only leaves the two last methods as acceptable ones within modern circumstances.
Capitalism is distinctly parasitical, as the Marxists already know - it is based on exploitation.
Prey - victimhood - and the parasites that feed off of their 'work'.
Parasitism is the only acceptable form of predation, giving those tribes - genetic populations - that had already adopted it as their niche an advantage. They already had the lingo for its effective and efficient facilitation. Parasitical tools for a parasite that infests human minds would be superstition, obscurantism, linguistic surrealism, obfuscation etc.
This is why they cultivate herd psychology - herbivorous psyches - victimhood. Human herds are primed to be 'triggered, linguistically - becoming hyperactive, viz., hyper-consuming, hyper-productive, hyperactive.
{Bataill's The Accursed Share} This contrasts with traditional -polytheistic Potlatch societies, where excess was returned to nature, reaffirming balance. In Modern psychology of parasitism, energies are continuously pooled, miserly collected and hoarded - Some small amounts are returned to preserve peace - through 'humanitarian' contributions and small redistributions of wealth, with a distinct selective focus. Nothing on the scale of Potlatch.  

Adjustment from hunter to farmer, only in this context the species is both farmer and farmed - master/slave.
Both are domesticated by their symbiotic relationship.
Symbiosis appears to be one of 'Mutualism', or at worse 'Commensalism,' but it is a subtle and refined form of 'Parasitism'.

Hunter loses his ability to hunt, adopting a parasitical mindset.
Hunted losing its ability to conceal - farmed to be inconspicuous, easily exploited.

We've identified the source of the virus-meme in the gradual emergence of self-consciousness, exposing the mind to its own relationship with other, producing increasing anxiety and vulnerability - consequently the mind hides behind and within its own noetic fabrications - its own abstractions - adopting them literally so as to usurp the effect on him the apparent produces.
The virus-meme is a ideological method of coping with man's increasing awareness of himself, in relation to other.
This is allegorically presented in Biblical narratives concerning Adam & Eve and their expulsion from the 'Garden of Eden'.

We can now proceed to understand the symbiotic synthesis of virus/host which facilitates a parasitical survival strategy.
In this case the host doe not reject the virus, attempting to surpass its influence, but embraces it, integrating it into a new identity which noetically overturns all natural order - the synthesis - i.e., symbiont - of virus-meme and host, is reborn as a new 'being', adopting its new-found anxiety, and adapting it to a insidious form of survival - parasitism.
The method of coping with emerging self-awareness is converted to a tool for exploiting individuals which have failed to find relief in the coping method, or by exploiting the very mechanism of this defensive coping mechanism.
This is also narrated allegorically in the Old Testament.

This strategy does not adapt to reality, but uses a mediating host, as a proxy - therefore its semiotics adjust from coping to exploiting and manipulating another.
As such, it only has to adapt to the mediating host. like all parasites it exploits the host's energies, to its detriment.

When I say all is inverted in Nihilism - the virus-meme - I mean that the sequence of gene extended as meme, is inverted to meme extended as gene. In this inverted context the survival of the meme takes precedent to the survival of the gene.
Normally the meme extends and is a reflection of the genes that they emerge from - representing a historical relationship between a particular reproductive population and a particular environment.
In the case of Nihilism the meme is detached from environment - it is entirely theoretical, ideological, allowing it to adapt to any particular host, and/or population.
Such a meme can act negatively upon the host - i.e. gene/meme synthesis - because tis motive is the memes survival and not the gene's.
Ideology sacrificing populations for its own propagation and survival.

Traditional, and/or Aryan gene/meme synthesis is motivated by the survival of the genes - the meme accentuating and multiplying survivability and fitness.
Nihilism cares not for the genetics of a population or an individual - as such modernity ignores or denounces all natural identifiers - e.g., sex, race. It's programming is entirely focused on its own survival - the survival of the meme, e.g., ideology, dogma.
Spreading linguistically from mind to mind - host to host - it morphs within every new host, but is governed by a common programming using the host as a proxy, which it then easily discard when it has drained it of all utility.

It exists in obscurity and flourishes in darkness, manipulating the mind's need for absolutes, as a coping method.
It remains occult and theoretical, interacting with environment through its infected proxy.
Its semiotics are adjusted for this, therefore its language is never in reference to anything in the world - ideas with no connection to the real, noumena with no connection to phenomena - but are always in reference to emotions, sensations, insinuations, absent absolutes - referring to psychology, politics etc.; symbols/words used to trigger a reaction in the host, directing its activities.

Nietzsche, Friedrich wrote:
Christianity as a denaturalization of herd-animal morality: accompanied by absolute misunderstanding and self-deception. Democratization is a more natural form of it, one less mendacious.
Datum: the oppressed, the lowly, the great masses of slaves and semi-slaves desire power.
First step: they make themselves free-they ransom themselves, in imagination at first, they recognize one another, they prevail.
Second step: they enter into battle, they demand recognition, equal rights, ‘justice.’
Third step: they demand privileges (they draw the representatives of power over to their side).
Fourth step: they demand exclusive power, and they get it – In Christianity, three elements must be distinguished:
(a) The oppressed of all kinds, (b) The mediocre of all kinds, (c) The discontented and sick of all kinds.
With the first element Christianity fights against the political nobility and its ideal; with the second clement, against the exceptional and privileged (spiritually, physically –) of all kinds; with the third element, against the natural instinct of the healthy and happy.
When a victory is won, the second element steps into the fore- ground; this mediocre nature at last grows so conscious of itself (acquires courage for itself) that it arrogates even political power to itself – Democracy is Christianity made natural:

[WTP, 215]

Darwinian concepts have been mystified to blunt the edges of their indifferent implications.
In everything man seeks a purpose - telos - a meaning to give to his own need/suffering.
If he finds none, he constructs what is missing and he in need of, projecting them as universal 'truths', without the slightest sceptical inhibition.
So hasty in his need, he is, that he ascribes to life-less processes a living motive.

If a real example you ask for then go no further than the Christian misinterpretation and misapplication of the word 'love', or how the ancient-Greeks, long after they had invented Ananke, they found in 'Eros' a softer, more intimate, metaphor - perhaps a symptom of their own decadence during their decline.
Sexual obsessions always arise in times of decay, as if when man feels the end approaching he is desperate to pass himself on - just look at how sexually obsessed our Modern American based System has become - a clear sign of a coming collapse.
For the laymen, I am sure, a literal understanding dominates; for the wise men the metaphor is useful but not literal, just as the metaphor of 'fire' had been for Heraclitus.

technology works because, like memes are extension of genes, technology is an extension - externalization - of man's knowledge and understanding of his own biological, organic processes.
Like with art, man uses a medium to externalize himself.

But, like organisms, technologies are not infallible, and they require corrective adjustments by a user - an external will; adjustment and maintenance, due to cosmic Flux, including both ordered and random energies.

Given that an organism - self-organizing, self-ordering - can only perceive order, its meme, art, technologies remain within the context of perceived natural order.

Chaos can only be indirectly perceived through order - through its interaction, influence upon order - via the unforeseeable - which is the evolutionary advantage offered by conciousness.

We have yet to distance ourselves from the near-absolute order represented by the concept of the Big Bang, therefore we are still within the range of its resonance - moving towards increasing disorder, i.e., chaos.
This means that at some point in space time - a billion, trillion, years rom now, our technologies will be useless.

The Pacifist
Nietzsche, in altering Schopenhauer's will-to-live to will-to-power, probably fell into a capital error. the truth is that the thing the average man seeks in life in not primarily power, but peace; all his struggle is toward a state of tranquillity and equilibrium; what he always dreams of is a state in which he will have to do battle no longer. the dream plainly enters into his conception of Heaven; he thinks of himself, post mortem, browsing about celestial meadows like a cow in a safe pasture. A few extraordinary men enjoy combat at all times, and all men are inclined toward it at orgiastic moments, but the race, as a race craves peace, and man belongs among the more timorous, docile and unimaginative animals, along with the deer, the horse and the sheep. this craving for peace is vividly displayed in the age-long conflict of the sexes. Every normal woman wants to be married, for the plain reason that marriage offers security. And every normal man avoids marriage as long as possible, for the equally plain reason that marriage invades and threatens his security.

This is what I mean by Nihilism being inverting the gene<>meme sequences.

Heisman, Mitchell wrote:
The genes and memes of Judaism evolve towards opposite and incompatible extremes. The rule of the genes tends to increase social differentiation on the basis of sex and caste because these tend to be the most efficient divisions of labor from the standpoint of kin selective gene propagation. The rule of the memes tends to decrease social differentiation on the basis of sex and caste on a basis of social egalitarianism because the egalitarian memes themselves cannot propagate themselves if totally subordinated to the total rule of the genes. Jewish genes and Jewish memes are thus in ultimate deadly competition for development.

Suicide Note

Mind/Body dissonance producing neurosis, and self-aggrandizing narcissism (messianic complex) founded on the manipulation of semiotics.
Ideology usurps Reality.

The revolutionary innovation was a product of capitulation - only some Semitic tribes accepted nihilism as a 'positive - God - when all other tribes had rejected it as 'negative', integrating nihilism into a symbiosis to become Jews.
This is allegorically narrated in the Bible - choseness. The Jews essentially chose sickness as a new form of 'health', ideologically and semiotically converting weakness to strength and shame to pride.

Within the context of Gene<>Meme dynamics, the sequence from genes to memes, was inverted to memes towards genes.
The ideology preceded the real world, the physical - mind preceded body, producing dissonance - conflict between memes that annihilate or usurp natural order.

Heisman, Mitchell wrote:
Christian love is a radical passive-aggression of the spirit. Whereas genetic insemination requires penetration of biological borders, memetic insemination requires penetration of mental or spiritual borders. Because Jesus’ mind-spirit was the penetration of the mental-spiritual borders that separated Jew and Roman, his spiritual ideas could penetrate and inseminate hitherto ‘natural’ borders. Whereas sexual love leads toward genetic insemination, Christian love leads to memetic insemination. Love is an evolutionary expression of a desire for reproduction and, in this case, the reproduction of the selfish memes of Christian altruism. Jesus overcame the natural determination of being a natural rapist by becoming a supernatural rapist. Christian love is Jesus’ gargantuan spiritual penis raping the boundaries of class and race, Jew and gentile, insider and outsider, and master and slave. Jesus’ penis of the spirit penetrated deep inside until the spiritually violated Roman-ruled world had been loved to death.

The shift does not require centralized intention - no conspiracy.
The meme itself includes the programming of its own propagation, just like genetics produce specific behaviours in organisms that are unaware of what is occurring.

A virus-meme hijacks an organisms genetic impulses and converts them into processes that propagate it, at the experience of the gene.
This is a fundamental aspect of Nihilism, as a defensive vulnerability that becomes infected with a self-serving idea/ideal.

All 'conspiracies' are not the product of centralized control, but of manipulating what is already in the process of becoming.
Successful conspiracies act like man intervening upon a river's flow down a mountainside. They exploit a process for their won benefit, slightly modifying it, directing it, but not conjuring it from nowhere, like many imbeciles believe, or claim to dismiss all conspiracies.
Man is a quintessential conspiratorial organism. History is written about secret motives attempting to covertly control overt processes.

Relationship of Mind/Body, corresponding to Meme/Gene.
Hellenism promotes asceticism as the search for balance. Body, the primal, is not denied but brought nuder the control of the mind. This is cultivation.

Abrahamism, and most variants of nihilism, attempts to absolutely deny body, the physical, the tangible, empirical.
It proposes a denial of body, by the mind.
Mind is held to be "divine" and body a source of "sinfulness", evil, what is dirty, base, undesired.

This is at the root of the current identity crisis where Desperate degenerates deny their physicality to claim that they are "females trapped in a body they reject".
The rejection of "race," and gender, is also rooted in the same rejection.
It's asceticism is self-abnegating - see Buddhism as an eastern version of Nihilism, produced due to population pressures.

For Aryans the body is not rejected - appearance is not superficial - but it is to be brought under the reasoning mind's dominance - usually an external idea/ideal, held in common by all members of the same tribe.
Nature is the first standard - indifferent and independent - metaphorically represented by the gods.
The second standard is the tribe's ideas/ideals and, which do not contradict natural order but cultivate it towards a preferred direction - cultivation.

In regards to identity in a fluctuating world with no absolutes.

I have to remain humble, to avoid triggering an delicate snowflake, out there, who may read this and mistake my conviction for an absolute certainty.

How does identity persist in a world lacking absolutes and in continuous interactive Flux? Memory. [ MANifesto: Intelligence & Genius – Memory]
Memory is what holds a continuum together as a single ephemera phenomenon.
Life has innate memory. We call it DNA. DNA is what is passed-on from parent to offspring, and what is continued through mitosis. Each distinct (individual) participating in the process inherits memories from its parent and then contributes its own accumulated memories of its interactions with world before it passes them on to its offspring, if it manages to reproduce at all. Death is a severing of a continuum.
Lifeless matter/energy has no innate memory and no means of accumulating and passing-on memories – which can also be described as data/information.
What then holds together a stone, a cloud, or a river, as a single continuum?
The observing living organism. The stone is part of a continuum, a river is part of the same continuum, only in the memory of a living organism, if it has a nervous system and a brain to store experiences as memories.
Genes are memories and memes are externalized representations of genetic memories; expressions of the same continuum.
What are memories? Simplifications/Generalizations of experiences, and/or interactions, reduced to an algorithm that can replicate them, without ever being able to completely, fully, absolutely do so.
Memes contribute to the maintenance of experiences more completely and fully – more precisely – without ever attaining an absolute preservation of the interaction; something is always “lost in translation” from inter-activity to memory of the inter-activity.
If the continuum is broken, for any reason, then we can no longer speak of the same identity. For example, the transference of human memories into an artificial intelligence constitutes a break in the continuum from organism into an alternate medium, such as metallic, cybernetic, device.
Identity can be divided into a triad: ego/self/Self, each representing a different aspect of it; i.e., ego the lucid part – conscious mind; self, the unconscious part – body; and Self representing the part inherited from the parents via synthesis.
Conscious implies an awareness of its own memories, experiences, as they are being accumulated and stored; awareness of being aware, and/or awareness of interactivity. This is usually what is referred to with the word/symbol "I" – yet it also includes the other two parts of identity which are most often denied, rejected – forgotten by Moderns – calling this denial "freedom, liberty".
Some, sensing that this is false, conclude that there is no such thing as "freedom". The continuum is perceived as an "enslaving causal chain" they want to break free from but cannot. In this context the body is a sort of prison for the mind, where mind is self and body is an undesired limitation inhibiting its freedom. Essentially, the mind feels temporally trapped by the body's representation of its past: identity crisis – mind feels antagonistic towards its own body and its own past.

Memory is not only fundamental to identity it is an intrinsic part of what we call "intelligence". Without stored experiences the organism has no way to perceive repeating patterns and formulate a response, or a strategy to cope.
Memory is a foundation for what is called "genius". Sampling space/time interactions and integrating them into cohesive wholes so as to perceive repeating patterns allows the mind to perceive patterns lost to others who cannot do so.
