The negative will always surpass the positive for it is the tranquil waters of the ocean all rivers wash into after a short tumultuous journey downwards.

The ways these waters rise up into the atmosphere as mists falling as snows on the mountain peaks, is the mystery nobody can ever know, because the knowing itself would contradict it.

Few have the broadness of mind to find self-control and balance, in the infinite possibilities their perceptions expose them to.
The many narrow of mind must be given an external and immediate source of anxiety to keep them in check - and so for the few fear is something that is earth-bound and that can be dealt with, whereas for the others it is forever unsurpassable.

To live well is to live unencumbered by the needless.
To live with fewer needs is to live lightly.

Opposites unite in the same place where they are born and cast in the role of antagonists: in the human mind.
Between them the world ebbs and flows in multiplicities of (inter)actions.

Respect is rooted in anxiety.
One respects the one that can potentially deny him something he values.

All value judgements are comparisons and so no perfection and no absolute should be sought in them, but only the superior and the inferior in regards to a defined intent.

Self-knowledge is this endless pursuit of an identity through the knowledge, and the acceptance of one’s past.
Without the courage of acceptance all knowledge is rendered useless.

A man does not cast off blind as to where he is going, nor does he accept a direction offered to him by strangers seducing him with easy pleasures.
A man finds in his past the binding ideals of his ancestors, cleans and polishes them from whatever dirt may have covered them in time, until they shine as bright as when they were first born, and then he flings them forward as beacons to light his way.

Empathy does not automatically result in sympathy.
It is often that part of ourselves that we see in the other which is the part we despise the most in ourselves, because it is that part which we have overcome, become masters of, or are in the process of doing so.

Understanding is improved in proportion to the possibilities we can connect to our knowing.

The Idealist will consider all challenges, contradictions, to his preferred future an annulment of them, though his own Ideal is no more than an annulment of the world, as it is, and of everything that made it and him possible.
In this way Nihilism is turned into a “happy positive”, seducing many children with its fantastic fantasies, when in fact it hides a deep, mature, resentment of the past (nature).

All is in Flux; all is changing.
Therefore, all demands a constant reaffirmation.

Many confuse the world of man with the world at large, owing to the fact that they are so engulfed in institutionalized fantasy, so immersed in sheltering solipsism and nullifying narcissism that they have lost all contact with the real, and can no longer relate to the world outside of this manmade caricature of it.

Excess develops habituation with it; habituation develops dependence, through repetition.
The price is independence.

In speaking the truth great reservation must be applied, for not all can bear it.
One must make sure that one speaks of the truth to those few who can pay the price in hearing it.
To all others a partial truth, partial lie, must be offered; to each according to their strength of spirit and their constitution.
Some truths are too dangerous to be shared with no sense of measure.

Consciousness is a looking back.
The level of consciousness, its sophistication, is a measure of how far one can look back to find useful patterns so as to apply them in the immediate, or to project them towards the distant.
Ergo the depth or shallowness of a conscious mind is determined by how far back it can delve to sample experience/knowledge – it is the product of clear, brave, honest, detailed, memory.

It is best to avoid the myriads of genetic by-products of human depravity.
Best to only keep to your own, in your own time, at your own pace.
But if you are forced to deal with these recyclable human pollutants, try to remain as curt as possible, never speaking much about yourself and always redirecting the focus upon them; always offer them self-deprecating hyperbole, to feed into their delusions and to play along with their lies.

A female is never emancipated from masculinity; she simply changes alliances and finds a new male to give herself to.
When such an inspirational male is not available to her, in her immediate surroundings, she settles for an imagined, invisible, abstraction of a man, and is no less satisfied.

One does not hate one’s enemies, in a way where the emotion overpowers him.
One is thankful for them, for without disease, the pleasure of ease is impossible; without death, life is impossible; without weakness, strength is impossible; without discontentment, contentment is impossible.

There is only one tribe in history – a singular successful tribe of its type – which begins as an idea and then attempts to become a fact; which begins as a meme and then tries to impose itself upon the world as a gene; which begins as a seductive denial of life and reality, and then morphs into this self-contradicting monstrosity.
They are not to be hated or pitied, for this feeds into their unifying paradigm. They are to be forcefully and consistently rejected, as one rejects a virus.

When love lost its immediate severity, it became the refuge of degenerates, and hypocrites; it became a toy to be played with.

Kindness is often mistaken for weakness, by the same type of mind that mistakes ignorance for courage. For the same reasons, indifference is mistaken for timidity, because one uses one’s self to understand the always alien other, and this understanding can never exceed this limit; the understanding twists around the individual’s self-awareness and self-assessment; its honesty, clarity, and inter-relating structures.
The typical mind discovers self, and determines self-worth through the other, creating a self-referential ring contained within social dynamics – this is how the SueporOrganism starts to form its outer boundaries, its encompassing, porous, hide: it circles back upon itself in a continuity it calls infinite.

Asceticism: The Will imposes a limit to its instinctive (inter)activity.
In time, and with repetitive consistency, this replaces the previous automatic responses to unforeseen stimuli – emotions are to be included into this category of automatic (re)actions.
Only this can be called free-will, and it is what masculine spirit is all about: the rational imposition of the will over innate, naturally evolved behaviours.

Man shows reverence for what is most alien to him, towards what lays outside his field of understanding.
Both demons and saints are forms of erotic reverence, seducing the feminine in man.
But when man appreciates critically, he acknowledges himself in the other, and not what he lacks in himself; he does not demonize, nor sanctify…he only (re)cognizes.

If the “medium is the message,” then Indo-European culture has slowly entrapped itself in a bipolar version of a singular message.

Agape is about exploring the past so that it can be preserved in the future; it's about reaffirming what has been so that it is not lost.
Eros is about projecting into the future what is most immediate, often-times disregarding the past out of necessity.
Eros detaches from the past so as to project an idealized version of what it lacks into the future.

Eroticism is an idealized projection of a presence detached from its historical content; it is organs with no unity, blind need with no care, no consideration, and no motive beyond its immediacy.
Eros is need serving a past it is ignorant of.
The perfect tool for manipulation.

When a noble man speaks of freedom, he does not mean from himself, from his past, from his nature.
When a noble man speaks of freedom, he does not mean death as a polymorphous liberator from the world that made him.
When a noble man speaks of freedom, he does not mean from his senses, from his memories, from his reason.
When a noble man speaks of freedom he means from other men, and the contrivances they invent to enslave his spirit, and to harness his will to their own.

The noble man leaves that kind of freedom to his lesser.

The mind exposes its inner-workings, its undisclosed processes, by the emphasis it puts on perceptions of otherness.
For the more feminine-minded the emphasis, no matter the topic, is always emotional.
The automatic (re)action to stimuli, where inner organic processes mingle with external perceptions, always direct the mind towards the emotional, the social, its relationship with the otherness.
No detached appreciation is possible; no reason with no personal investment. The mind is taken over by the emotion, and all is perceived through the emotive lens, the instinct, the self-interest, the socialized component.
