When I've purged myself of eros, and tired of thymos, it is in the embrace of hypnos, and his brother thanatos that I release myself, not knowing who will be the stronger of the two.
Together they carry me to the shores of styx, and before I cross over, energies rejuvenated, creativity and destruction call me back for more, and I heed their call.
But, sometimes I wish I could slumber on, wounds not fully healed appetites no longer as pressing, knowing that one day my energies will wane and there will be no more awakening, and that finally, deaf to eros and thymos eternal rest shall be mine.

The meme is what constructs the limits and the rules within which the illusion of genetic parity can take effect.

My words may taste bitter in mouths addicted to sweets, but then a drink of water tastes so when we've been sucking on candy for too long.

Addicted to patterns the artist spills his mind out, enjoying the sight of himself with the arrogance of one who dares the other to criticize.
The mathematician traces his mind using the symbols of his thinking, finding fascinating connections, and subtler patterns in the abstractions.
He begins to lose contact with the world they were supposed to represent, and become a world unto themselves – the mind marvelling at the mechanisms of his thinking, given an external form – the representation being represented.

Before others, I've been a shadow in my own light - the third in a duality, sitting aside and still participating.
Others feel pity, mistaking their own darkness as belonging to me, bathed in my reflective luminosity.
But I am as I am, and where I ought to be, for this is my essence and can be no other... nor wishing to be.

With no way of standing-out, within a group, the desperate one will take the mundane and mystify it.
Exploiting weakness of mind and body is the only way his brain can surpass the median.

Nationalism is idealism reduced to tribalism, same as spirituality, metaphysics and philosophy is reduced to religion.
Unifying principles dumbed-down to a level the masses, constituted of the mediocre and below, can comprehend.


Φ


From group/troop, to tribe, to city-state, to nation-state, and now, to super-state, the idea(l) remains intact, and unifying.
How it is approached, and related to, depends on the quality of the mind participating within it.


Φ


Modernity takes the idea(l), reduces it to an abstraction by detaching it from the real, from its blood and guts meaning, its genetic hypostasis, drains it of substance, and feeds the masses the dried-out outcome in its simplest, non-pragmatic form: nationalism as abstraction, as a pure Idea(l), such as “freedom”.
An inspiring word that can mean anything to anyone, at any time.  
But it does so with spirituality, as well.
Nationalism is religion minus the Divine.
If rooted in nature it can mean a shared genetic heritage, when detached and raised to a noumenon with no relation to anything real, it can become a substitute for God.

Φ

 An idealized conception of nationhood, can be vulnerable to the infection of Nihilism and its multicultural agenda – the dilution of blood, of past/nature essentially as this is carried forth in flesh and blood, creating an artificial parity, founded not on natural standards, but on human behavioural standards enforcing a limit to conduct, and to thinking.

An individuals relationship with nature/past, is expressed through the words/symbols used to describe nature.
Through the agency of the female, man, and woman exposes an inner relationship with past, first through a relationship with their own mother - the medium through which they entered the world as conscious entities.

Man awakens to his infancy, demanding the world provide him with what a parent would; adolescence disillusions him to the parent's omniscience/omnipotence, and the young mind rebels; soon after he rediscovers the merits of his father's mother's support and returns humble and willing to abide by their rule.

Our Modern philosophy is still dominated by those first infantile demands, in the form of childish words, crying out for someone to come to its aid.
returning back home, reverting to an infantile state, we take-up those same words, which should have been laughed away, as the first verbal gestures of a still immature mind, slowly discovering himself within world.

We return to the infinite debate over god, and we are mesmerized by the beauty of our own conceptualizing, in our study of symbols, words, numbers.

The simplest self-evident truth sounds like profound wisdom in the ears of those who cannot hear, or have failed to listen.

The negative has been used to either support its own existence, or any theory lacking the possibility for any other validation, or, it has been used, to negate any theory that offered a negative possibility, in relation to the individual's interests, that could be validated.
From these two utilities we get the modern psychologies of 'naive idealist' and 'disillusioned cynic'.
Two sides of the same nihilistic coin: pure and 'positive' nihilism.
The two binary poles of Modern human cognition.

The deciding standard is not upbringing, subjective preference, personal, taste or some other arbitrary factor.
What differentiates between what is more and what is less probable is the world itself.
There's no excuse, no linguistic trick that can protect you from an indifferent world and its costs, in regards to your judgemental errors, failures, as there is no way to evade the benefits of judgemental accuracies.

The world directs how words are to be defined and how they can be applied, in relation to a goal that exists outside your mind.
Nothing, inducing some human or systemic intervention, some wilful mitigation, can protects you for long.
Whether you pay in tiny increments or in lump sums, the price will be paid in full.
There is no escape. Suicide is a payment.
You can see the real and decrease the costs, in relation to the befits, or you will fail to see the real and increase the debt incrementally, day by day, month by month, year by year.
Death will not evade the cost, because you would have already paid with lost potential and a lifetime of blindness...lost possibilities.

Cosmos is indifferent and cold....and man must harmonize with this indifferent coldness if he is to approach objectivity. The heat of subjectivity only serves to cope with it. It is a life-affirming reaction to what is.
Subjective/Objective, interpretor/interpreting, is the conflict named agon.

Brevity in speech - Hellenic askesis {ΑΣΚΗΣΗ} - habituates the spirit to efficiency of thought.
Prolepsis {ΠΡΟΛΗΞΗ} against the miser's linguistic obscurantism, attempting to establish a relationship of spiritual usury.
An exercise in covering the largest distances with as few steps as possible, without leaving the earth's gravity.
