Knowledge and the uncovering, revealing of reality, the becoming apparent of [i]what is[i], is not necessarily pleasant. Knowledge may necessitate suffering. Increasing awareness may provoke anger, shame, despair as much as the alternative.

To know thyself is to reconnect the self to reality. Reality is available to all, but some are not willing to pay it's price.

I seek health so that I can then seek more gainful suffering, I never expect to be at ease.

Knowing myself is humbling. The more I obtain knowledge of my origins and evaluate them, the more difficult it is to consider myself close to doing them credit.

Quote :
"Claiming the treasure is often presented as a mystical marriage. “The meeting with the goddess (who is incarnate in every woman) is the final test of the talent of the hero to win the boon of love.” The hero has passed through the initiation, discovered the object of his search, and is now ready to take it for his own. “Woman, in the picture language of mythology, represents the totality of what can be known. The hero is the one who comes to know. As he progresses in the slow initiation which is life, the form of the goddess undergoes for him a series of transformations: she can never be greater than himself, though she can always promise more than he is yet capable of comprehending. She lures, she guides, she bids him burst his fetters. And if he can match her import, the two, the knower and the known, will be released from every limitation.”
If he can match her is, of course, a very big if. To claim the treasure requires the hero not only to be worthy, but to prove his worth.The guardians of the treasure “dare release it only to the duly proven. But the gods may be oversevere, overcautious, in which case the hero must trick them of their treasure. Such was the case with Prometheus. When in this mood even the highest gods appear as malignant, life-hoarding ogres, and the hero who deceives, slays, or appeases them is honored as the savior of the world."

Quote :
"In the Indo-Aryan tradition, every god-that is, every transcendent power-is joined with a bride, and the term sakti, "bride," also means "power:' In the West, Wisdom (Sophia) and sometimes even the Holy Spirit were represented as a royal woman, while in Greek mythology, Hebe, the perennial Olympian youth, was given in marriage to Heracles as a wife. In Egyptian figurations, divine women offer to the kings a lotus, which is a symbol of a rebirth and the "key of life." Like the Iranian fravashi, the Nordic Valkyrie are a figuration of transcendental parts of warriors, the forces of their destinies and victories. The Roman tradition knew of a Venus Victrix who was credited with generating an imperial stock (Venus Genitrix); the Celtic tradition mentioned supernatural women who take warriors to mysterious islands to make them immortal with their love. Eve, according to an etymology of the name, mean "Life;' or "the Living One." Thus, without proceeding further with similar examples, which I have discussed elsewhere, I wish to emphasize that a very widespread symbolism has seen in the woman a vivifying and transfiguring power, through which it is possible to overcome the human condition.

What is the foundation of the feminine representation of this power? Since every symbolism is based on specific relationships of analogy, it is necessary to begin with the possible relationships between man and woman. These relationships can be either normal or abnormal. They are abnormal when the woman dominates the man. Because the symbolism of the woman connected to this second case does not concern the issue I am discussing here, I will not dwell on it. I will only say that these are instances of gynecocratic (matriarchal) views that must be regarded as residues of the cycle of the "lunar" civilization, in which we find a reflection of the theme of man's dependency and passivity toward the spirit conceived under a feminine guise (Cosmic Mother or magna mater, Mother of Life, etc.); this is a characteristic theme of that cycle.

However, the more general idea of the woman as the dispenser of the sacrum and as a vivifying principle, or as the bearer of a life that liberates, animates, and transforms mere being, does not necessarily fall in this category; rather, such an idea may be (and indeed often was) considered a part of a spirituality that I have characterized as "heroic." In this instance, it is necessary to refer to the normal relations between man and woman as the basis of the analogy and of the symbolism; hence the fundamental concept of a situation in which the virile principle retains its own nature. The spirit, vis-a.-vis the masculine, is the "woman": the virile principle is active, the spirit passive. Even before the power that transfigures it and vivifies the hero, the virile principle retains the character that man has as the lord of his woman. In passing, we must note that this is exactly the opposite of the bridal symbolism prevalent in religious and especially in the Christian mysticism, in which the soul is attributed a feminine role, namely, that of the "bride."

Having said that, and remembering what has been said about the "signs" of the center, we find mixed symbols: the Woman of the Island; the Woman of the Tree; the Woman of the Fountain; the Woman or Queen of the Castle; the Queen of the Solar Land; the Woman hidden in the Stone; and so forth. More particularly, as the widow the woman expresses a period of silence, that is, a period in which the tradition, the power, or the strength is no longer possessed, has lost her "man;' and awaits a new lord or hero.3 Analogous is the meaning of the imprisoned virgin who waits to be freed and married to a preordained knight. On this basis, everything that in epic legends and in many chivalric romances is described in terms of adventures and heroic struggles undertaken in the name of a woman is almost always susceptible to interpretation as a symbol of the tests of the virile quality, tests that are assigned as a premise for a transcendent integration of the human personality. And if in this type of literature we also find women who are seductive and who represent a potential danger for the hero, this should not be u~derstood solely in a primitive and direct manner, that is, in terms of a mere carnal seduction. Rather, this should be understood on a higher plane as a reference to the danger that a heroic adventure can lead to a titanic fall. In this case, the woman represents the seductiveness of transcendent power and knowledge when its possession means Promethean usurpation and the sin of prevaricating pride. Another, opposite aspect may be related with what someone has called "the death which comes from a woman," referring to the loss of the deeper principle of virility."

I can value a draconian overlord from a  sort of detached, intellectual point of view, e.g., his power, strength, intelligence, cunning, etc. I can say to myself that I would like those qualities for myself. But that doesn't mean I'm going to passively allow some tyrant to put me on the bad end of the stick just because he has admirable qualities.

Sure, I can appreciate a society that is fascist as it would be the kind of society I would have if I were at the top, but if I'm on the bad end of the stick, it's my personal enemy.

The World as Will and Representation


Will:  Expressing a strong intention or assertion about the future

Representation:  The description or portrayal of someone or something in a particular way or as being of a certain nature

The will is the ultimate nature of reality, undifferentiated. It is not visible or tangible itself. The world is the representation of the will. They are both correlated, but epistemically distinct. The external world does not exist objectively as we experience it; our experiences are subjective in nature, i.e., mental constructs. For example: The greenness of grass is not an inherent property of the grass, but rather the minds representation of force. The opposing philosophical position is Direct-Realism ( pejoratively: ' Naive-Realism' ) which would argue that the greenness of grass ( qualia ) is an inherent part of the grass and that it continues to exist on the grass even when there are no points of consciousness or awareness to perceive.

Schopenhauer was inspired by the Rig Veda and his ideas are, certainly, in agreement with Brahmanical ontology. But it is imperative to note that Arthur Schopenhauer was a thorough going nihilist, a despiser of nature. He even believed that the Will ( The ultimate reality ) was inherently evil. He based this off his perception of the barbarity of the natural world which is, after all, according to him the representation of the ultimate. He believed that the world should be shunned.

It's consistent enough, I suppose.

Here's my beef. Egoism is worth only as much as the person who has it. How do you determine what value you have, if you are the measure of everything valuable? (Fascism is bad, unless it works for you. Courage is bad, unless it works for you. Etcetera. You can say, "I like courage, even if it's bad for me..." but I'm not sure that you actually do, given what you've said.)

This isn't a question I have a definite answer to, and I'm not trying to trap you. It's something I'm thinking out-loud about...

Most people would call that altruism.

You could say that your family is an extension of yourself, but then dying for your family wouldn't be an example of something you'd be for, that may harm you personally.

Lots of people have thought that---in a state of nature---we are in a war of each against all. But all of them, (as far as I am aware), use that as a premise toward the conclusion that society is a necessity. --An argument in favour of the status quo, usually. E.g., Glaucon, Machiavelli, Hobbes. But I suppose it depends on what country you live in, what political rights you have, what laws exist, whether your family would be safer with society as it is.

This just begs the question....is altruism even possible? The family could be seen as an extension of the self - that's valid.

I still think it's a war against all even in modern society - it's just less bloody and barbaric. We still compete for females, jobs, social status, etc, etc.

Altruism depends on one thing: identification.
How each individual identifies self.

When this is understood then "altruism", or what is called "selflessness" becomes another act of selfishness, or self-fullness.

MRA - MGTOW movement becoming more and more popular

I've noticed that the mgtow - MRA phenomena is increasing rapidly - a sort of snow ball effect. I was watching boxing videos on Youtube ( a completely irrelevant topic in regards to MGTOW ) and people in the comment section were talking about MRA stuff.

The MRA and MGTOW Youtubers have mass followings - kind of reminds me of the Atheist movement on Youtube; legions of hardcore disciples. I guess it's, really, indicative of the times we are living in. Women's standards are being raised to, essentially, super-human standards - plus the economic crisis is a sort of cherry on the sunday; more and more men losing their jobs, being denied opportunities, and so on. I suspect that Mannequin is correct in his prediction that men will start killing females more frequently. Sexual frustration plus the misandric/feministic system are the perfect recipe for carnage.

Lots of things can be seen as an extension of yourself. If you were raised like most people in the West, the public system probably has more to do with what propensities you've brought forth than your own family. Friends, teachers, coaches, other institutions, etc. When you take responsibility for yourself, you cease to let those accidents of causes determine you---but the same holds for your family. You become your own person. That's why sacrifice for your family is altruistic. The target of your action is not you, it's them. --That's altruism, I would think.

Quote :

No biggie. Competition is not war. Think about the way we actually compete for jobs, in a society---by pursuing credentials, networking, or selling your own shit, etc. Or for females, by taking care of your body, sharpening your conversation, etc. Or for political reforms, by convincing other people we have the better position, etc. It's actually pretty civilized, most of the time.

Without that civilization/society... we would compete for women by beating ourselves over the head with a club. Or a fucking battle-axe, if you prefer. There'd be no jobs, I would just try to steal your fucking bananas. Civilization, the ideal at least, channels competitive instincts to make you better at being what you are. To the extent that it does so, it's worth defending.

Depends where you live, I suppose. The brutal draconian overlord, who by force rapes my wallet at tax time....... is using it for old age security, among other things.

Man is a pack animal.

The ideal of equality within a society doesn't make the members of said society equal.
An ideal can't be reached, and any kind of life-form doesn't even try to reach it. What it does is to adapt to the environment. In this case the ideal can be so powerful, as to create an artificial environment with the idea of equality being set as the ideal.

So one should not expect organisms to try and reach the ideal but to adapt to the environment which is created by the ideal.
For example, the ideal of equality has brought about a race to the bottom in victim status. People don't try to become equal, what they do is, to adapt to the artificial environment by claiming victim status - To gain an advantage, not equality. They specialize and adapt to the environment.

All the same for the ideal of altruism.
Equality and altruism set as an ideal are destructive - They bring about an increase in entropy.
They function as an artificial entropic force in an environment which is suffocating its inhabitants with too much pre-made, man-made, order.

Every man's freedom is one way or another an other man's slavery, no foreseeable future will put an end to this dynamic. A man cannot choose the cards he was given in life, but he can decide how to use them. Determine if they harbor the best of trade-offs. I've too often looked down on others, thinking the best of hands somehow results in default victory. Now things have become more clear, honoring the past in achieving the highest of potentials. Those of whom a head start was given often lose this sight, deterring this greater richness.

How do you feel when you read someone like Nietzsche---someone with the power to see through you, to know you better than you know yourself, and to write like lightening. Aren't you freer, now, because of the power he had?

A plainer example might be some scientific researcher, who has the freedom of his time, the freedom of resources to pursue his interest, his space, his equipment, his safety, etc. Isn't that freedom? --And look what you get out of his freedom... A longer life.

I meant indirectly as in always somebody, the event, the dynamic has winners and losers in for the most part disgracefully uneven proportions. This is the only means of overall advancement, not untill a hivemind mechanism is implemented can the dynamic be somewhat changed.

Say what you will about Inmendham, he does have a footing in realism of sorts. His personality is among the best. For him Nietzsche is more akin to a poet than philospher, calling upon the subscribers to stop noticing the whole picture & focus inward, to perfectly channel this force.

Yes, Immendham is very realistic in certain regards; he acknowledges that reality/nature is brutal, ferocious, and barbaric. He and I both see nature for what it really is, but he gives into cowardice and nihilism which has turned him into an effeminate, neurotic mess. If it weren't for his deluded sense of objective-morality, he would have a lot of potential for being a great member on this site.

Mo, I'm too much of an individualist to desire to support society especially with all its laws and taxes. I think I would rather live in an anarcho-primitivist state of nature even though that wouldn't be all 'sunshines and rainbows' either. I'll be honest, I'm on the bad end of the society spectrum. There aren't many opportunities for me in this system. It's emasculating; a fuck load of dead-end, dishonorable vassal jobs and a rare amount of manly, honorable jobs that are difficult to acquire. Even if I were in a decent position in society, I still would feel like a slave due to all the bullshit laws, regulations, taxes, and so on. Society, really, only benefits those at the very top. But that is sort of irrelevant from the main point of my initial post on society. I was, really, just trying to rid the pretense of ' humanity '.

I look at land prices sometimes. Land is fairly cheap, if you look where other people aren't. Especially places without power, phone, cable or water hookups. It's a manageable goal to save for 10, 20, 50 acres in some sparsely populated forested place, with a river. At least where I am, in Canada. Like the price of a used car, often. Look north. Learn construction basics. Build your own house. Learn to hunt and grow. If it's a Rousseauian return to nature that you want, it is still to be had... I think. My brother does that. He can walk into his backyard, shoot a deer, butcher it, put it in his freezer. You don't need a lot of money, but whatever you do need, can be had by applying the skills you already used for yourself---like in building, etc. One issue is building codes, inspections, regulations... they can be a hurdle. But ultimately, it's just about education. At least in a society, you're less likely to have someone steal into your place in teh dark of night and kill you. And take what you have built. Playing by the rules is sometimes a small price to pay, I would think.

EDIT:

150 acres for $18,000. But really, who the fuck would need 150 acres? Split it with like-minded friends. Keep 50 for $6,000.
[You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]
I might even be interested. The only thing is I'm not sure how much I'd like you're embracing 'nature's eternal brutality' schtick as a neighbour. As long as you kept it to yourself, and didn't go all will to power murderous when I was fishing.

If you're in the States, land is cheaper.

The price of a full grown white pine is typically $500 to $1000. Chop and sell a few, and the property will have paid for itself.

I'm not sure why I'm telling you this.

If you want to be an anarcho-primitivist... maybe you could stick your toe in the water, and see if you're cut out for it...?

I've been interested in Bushcraft for sometime now - I've even done a solo camping trip out in a remote forrest in upstate NY. I've also considered going off the grid. But, i'm still going to need to support myself financially; I'm not adept in hunting yet or agriculture.

I was also considering doing an expedition up in Canada, in the Jasper area. It's very serene in those parts.

Well, as far as buying land goes... that picture you uploaded may be a tad out of your price range, if not entirely protected by the Crown. But yes, it's nice.

But uh, step 1: How the fuck are you going to be an anarcho-primitivist if you're at a loss for what to do when there's no drive through window. Time to build some relevant skills muchacho...

There's a huge trend of famous black males marrying Asians, it’s as if though their selfish genes are smarter than themselves. The black/asian offspring is far more aesthetically tuned than the other options. It’s like the opposites counteract each other.

Males are hard tuned to be attracted to the greatest of genetic potentials for future environment. Females much more prone to social conditioning, eluded into thinking said option bared greatest protection for child, etc.

So mixing ought to be looked within that lens. I personally find Northeast Asians highly attractive. However in the West asian looking males have the lowest of social standing, thus not even an option. If I were living in China permanently, then asian looking offspring would be far more advantageous. I'm conscious about my own biology, and thus can perfectly steer it in the right direction. Others have their biology ruling them, and the mimetic environment confusing the biology with adverse effect. Which are you??

Like I said -- it all comes back to how you feel about it Mo. Once we've figured that out all else can be dissected.


& learn some basic biology.....

I know about the selfish genes, i wonder however, why does attraction towards the ''exotic'' exist, the purpose.
I experience myself this kind of attraction for light-skinned Arab and Berber women and to some extent, Turkish women as well - in my country.
This attraction would also go for the South-European women, but they are not common here.

I grew up amongst the ''normal'', thus my own kind (Germanic).
Do not get me wrong, the strongest attraction towards females i have, is towards those belonging to my own people;
as a child i felt the most attracted to the blonde girls with a normal, healthy body.
The first time i became aware for my attraction towards women outside my own race, was with east-Asian women;
but this attraction i do not have anymore since some years ago i noticed more and more differences among them in comparison with Caucasian women -
such as flat noses, flat faces, soulless eyes and such..

Now i am 20 years old, my attraction has extended from mere blonde, blue-eyed women to the whole diversity among the Germanic women.
As a child, i, for example, never had any sort of attraction for red-haired women, now i find them very beautiful;
or freckles i did not like, now, if i see a blonde or a red-haired woman with freckles, i find it stunning - with brunettes less.

Yet, the more i become aware about fake hair, the less attractive these ''blondes'' become,
i read a time ago that not blondes are the most common to become a porn-whore, but brunettes,
this includes those with an artificial colour to hide their true colours.
In the actual life, i notice, the women most prone to miscegenation are those who paint their hair differently from their original colour,
especially Germanic women who paint their hair black, very unnatural and, together with women who colour their hair platinum-blond,
the most noticeable to be found in interracial relationships.

But why also the attraction towards the ''exotic''.
It might be due to the seemingly scarcity of them in combination with these specific foreign women having on average
wider hips (fertility), black hair (standing out) and are smaller (the longest people in the world are the Dutch).
I am 1.72 m, my mother is Swedish and 1.58 m, my father is Dutch and 1.97 m.

Thus fertility (hips), Caucasian features (beauty), body structure/length (smaller) and to a certain extent, identification - in correlation with scarcity.

Of course, attraction is more than just the colour of one's hair and the health of the body -
i do not feel any attraction, for example, towards Slavonic women.
It is about the whole being.

Is it about the looks or also about the demeanor, their behaviour, which you associate with them?

I do not really have a collective judgment anymore about non-negroid individuals from a people as a whole; due to my job,
i work all days outside and go through numerous neighborhoods.
From the public usage of certain objects, or their care of the neighberhood, you can judge its collective genetic make-up, the whole of the people.

White welfare neighborhoods are this, negroid neighberhoods are that, non-White neighberhood are such and
White worker / rich neighberhoods are the best in condition and behavior.

But i can now also separate from merely the facial expression; certain patterns in the face, how an individual will be belonging to any collective -
nice, arrogance, big-mouthed, will greet me, will give me 'the finger', slut, pious, negro-whore, drinks coffee/smokes all day etc.

Drinking coffee, energy drink, or smoking, or eating MC-Donalds (or other fast food);
such will fill me with disgust by any person and lose interest in any woman.

With those women i described in the former comment, i won't see them as much with such behavior (arrogance, fast-food) as my own kind.
Except when they have no sense of their heritage, than they eat and drink all day these artificial products;
and Moroccans, they seem to love KFC, muslim or not.
Berber women without any of such (Islamic values) have (my own and that of others, experiences) the biggest mouth
of all women you can imagine, so vile..
Turkish women (those of the younger generations) have the most respect - Islamic, cultural, or none,
they are the most pious and nice in behavior; at least, those of the younger generations and again, by my own observations in every-day life.

-Overall, i like for example the humility of these women, when you walk passed by one of such women and look them into the eyes, they lower their gaze.
-If not, they know how to talk in confidence and with respect, they know who they are.
-They seemingly, still know how to cook - when i was in Utrecht at a book fair,
the only person interested in extending her food preparation methods, observing the cooking books, was a Moroccan woman..
All those Dutch women went to the romantic non-sense books.
-They still have a certain distinctive character to separate honour from cowardice - and care about it.

Thus a combination of the looks, demeanor and behavior; which each ethnic stands out in in one of these three.


Still, my strongest attraction is towards my own women, especially the sportive ones with some (contradicting?) humility..

It's also not like every working-class/ethnic combination is the same. And if one looks at the relatively young liberal elite of most western countries then one sees that the inversion of aristocracy is also in 'progress'.

Yes, I find that the small gestures reveal a lot.

Behaviour is partly from the innate character which developed in an environment and in part it's learned mannerisms. I've found it important to find ways to discern between the two because learned mannerisms don't change the character behind the mask.

Mo, I'm too much of an individualist to desire to support society especially with all its laws and taxes. I think I would rather live in an anarcho-primitivist state of nature even though that wouldn't be all 'sunshines and rainbows' either. I'll be honest, I'm on the bad end of the society spectrum. There aren't many opportunities for me in this system. It's emasculating; a fuck load of dead-end, dishonorable vassal jobs and a rare amount of manly, honorable jobs that are difficult to acquire. Even if I were in a decent position in society, I still would feel like a slave due to all the bullshit laws, regulations, taxes, and so on. Society, really, only benefits those at the very top. But that is sort of irrelevant from the main point of my initial post on society. I was, really, just trying to rid the pretense of ' humanity '.


Your current financial condition apart, I will only comment that this kind of anarcho-primitivist "Individualism" and "each for his own" is ultimately, to me, self-stunting and dwarfing of the heart.

Master-Individuality is about being a link and maintaining that link and handing over/bequeathing that link.

You as a re-Presentation of your ancestors once more, and,
You as Representing the highest value of a current society in a way, when you rise, the whole society rises with you.

This was the meaning of Nobility/Arya.
The design of the caste system or Plato's republic was to effect this kind of Individuality - when you rise, the whole society [ancestors in the post, heirs of the future, kin of the present] rose with you. Caste is a linking and experiencing together.

To live alone, reaping the fruits of your success alone, to share them with a few family members and close-kin, etc. is typical dwarfing of the kind of Libertarian logic that Eyes/Antithesis and some others were propounding.
He called it "contentment"; I call it regression.

This is atleast not what Indo-Europeans meant by "Individuality" - it was a double-affirmation.

Bane - The Nihilist

I'm sure many of you have seen the latest Batman movie, so not much explication should be needed on this one. I just thought it would be fun and interesting to quickly post this.

The character Bane was born in some obscure, subterranean prison. The Prison was constructed as a sort of giant well, a gargantuan circular abyss that manifested the sky above. Bane was gravely beaten for helping to save a young girl escape the prison. His face was smashed in - which consequently caused some sort of perpetual nerve damage that only a special mask could alleviate.



Bane later is rescued from the prison by the League of Shadows. He is then excommunicated for reasons unknown.

Bane is a classic case of a misanthrope/nihilist. All of his years suffering in the abyss caused him to hate the world outside of which he could only fantasize about, he blamed the world ( Gotham City ) for his years of imprisonment, resented those who were free and enjoying life as he was left to rot in the abyss. He displays clear evidence of Marxist tendencies as well; take from the rich and give to the poor. But Bane is not, really, even interested in caring for the poor and disenfranchised; he hates, essentially, everyone which is why he planned on blowing up Gotham City entirely - Man, woman, child, and beast. He is a nihilist because he resented those who were free and happy, somehow deluding himself into believing that they were the source and culprits of his imprisonment and misery. It's akin to how an effete male blames the entire female population for social/sexual ostracization.

Bane let his rage and hatred consume him, he became a monster. But he was not always such; he had a heart at one point as evidence by his helping a young girl escape the prison from assault. But the beating he received and continual suffering from that point on drowned him into nihilistic rage.

Why I Am Not A Leftist

The comments in my Ego Death thread inspired me to make this post. I'm going to demonstrate, succinctly, why I am not a Leftist.

Leftism  : "  Left-wing politics are political positions or activities that accept or support social equality, often in opposition to social hierarchy and social inequality. It typically involves a concern for those in society who are perceived as disadvantaged relative to others and an assumption that there are unjustified inequalities that need to be reduced or abolished." - Wikipedia

Let's try and dissect this piece by piece.

Social Equality

Do I believe in social equality? Do I believe that all people are equal? or that all should be treated equally? No! I do NOT believe all people are equal nor do I believe that all people should should be treated equally. Hierarchy is everywhere in nature. We, humans, are part of nature. Some people are more athletic, some are more intelligent, some are more fat, some are more ugly, so on and so forth. No one is the same, therefore equality is impossible.

The core tenet of Leftism I reject. Ha!

Some major ideologies associated with Leftism: Feminism, LGBT movement, communism, Marxism, Liberalism, etc.

None of the listed ideologies and movements do I support.

The only vague similarity I have with Leftism is that I seek to help out some unfortunate souls, SOME. But Charity is not a necessary component of Leftism.
