Value judgments are meaningless outside idea(l)s.
The standard of good/bad is established in reference to an idea(l), which must be defined, explained, revealed as being more or less in-tune with reality, or more or less in-tune with the past/nature, genetics.

Murder is neither good or bad, unless one has a object/objective, a guiding idea(l), a projected desirable destination.
No behavior is innately good or bad - good/bad are human constructs because only humans can project idea(l)s - for animals the rudimentary form of good/bad is in relation to simple satisfaction of needs: food, survival etc.
Humans, the sophisticated noes, not the base ones, project idea(l)s beyond personal survival and the satisfaction of basic needs.  
with modernity the idea(l) human is one who has reverted to his animal state and only thniks in terms of personal survival and satiating personal needs.

Then who and what factor in to determine the value of the action.
Does it promote the approach to the idea(l) or does it hinder it?
Does it serve to maintain the idea(l) or does it serve to destroy it, to dilute it.

I've explained above what idea(l) is in relation to gene-to-meme harmony, which defines Pagan values.
Pagans are in harmony with nature, with their past, when their projected idea(l)s, their memes, the rituals spirituality, their values, are aligned with their genes, their inheritance, their biology.
The Modern is out of tune, in a state of schizophrenic disharmony, because though he noetically dismisses the past his body does not - it constantly reminds him, and this is why they are always excusing their behaviors, repressing their drives, ashamed of what their past made them out to be.  
Not only is he out-of-tune but he contradicts his own genes, pretending appearances are superficial and sex is a choice, his organs toys he can play with in whatever way he likes.
He is in conflict with himself, and so he says one thing and acts in contradiction to it; he becomes stuck in linguistic paradoxes, he dismisses language as a tool, he slanders philosophy, he belittles and mocks those that remind him of what he is.

Of course the Modern Nihilists, the Last Men, wants to level all idea(l)s down to subjective constructs, toys he can play with and the other can have his own.
To define words by attaching them to observable phenomena, will limit their self-pleasuring value.
to define what human means, and what male/female means, and what sex means, will force him to account for his own lifelong delusions, his investment in masturbation techniques; he will expose himself as a charlatan, a coward, a fake, accentuating all the deficiencies he ran from he tried to hide form using these verbal techniques of evasion.
He will be faced with a lifetime wasted trying to come up with hiding places; he will be faced with his own cowardice, his horror, his disgust at the mere sight of himself and his ancestry.
By making sex into a personal choice, an expression of taste, his won sexual dysfunctions, fetishes, become less shameful.
By denying the relevance of appearance, or the symmetry and reproductive fitness of beauty, he escapes his own ugliness.  
By turning value judgments into a sin, he avoids being judged, evaluated.
By ridiculing all idea(l)s he avoids exposing how self-hating, how ridiculous, how cowardly, how infantile, his own are.
By refusing to define the world he is using, he avoids exposing himself as a retarded mind, a stunted spirit, and the self-serving shallowness of his own adolescent idea(l)s.

The definitions of words does not begin with the "I say so" as the Modern subjectivist, moron wishes, only he clouds it as a communal "We say so", but is placed outside all subjective minds so that all can experience it, observe it, for themselves...validate it.

Words simply point to a phenomenon, or clarify it.
The Modern wants to reduce language to a simple pointing out the obvious and wish to avoid the clarifications, such as "smarter", "faster", "stronger", "taller", "better"...etc. and only when it comes to humans, because they have no issues with defining a dog as smarter than a worm, or being human as being better than being an ant, even if they cannot explain why this is so, and why they make this value judgment.

In this case the value judgment clarifies a particular trait by giving it a degree, in relation to an other.
Moderns prefer a uniform ambiguity of "tall", "big"...simplifying concept to the point of innocuousness, dumbing them down.  
All of philosophy is based on value judgments, which irks morons to no end.
The search for the "better life", the more "precise definition" the "better explanation", the most "ideal type of man" and so on.

The Modern offers the right to define degrees to the subjective mind, hoping there is no external standard to validate value judgments, and in this he exposes how cowardly and stupid he is.

One might say that personA prefers having a large dick to having a large brain, but in the real world one offers an advantage and the other not.
Only in hedonistic, sheltered environments is this reversed, where stupidity is protected from itself, making a large penis no different than a large brain...perhaps in hedonistic systems the large sex organ is the advantage, and the large awareness organ a disadvantage.
Explaining why modern morons like sheltered hedonistic systems, where no trait is more advantageous than another.

Back to defining words.
As I was saying, the definition of words, for one attempting to be as objective as possible, is placed outside his subjective preference.
It is meant to prevent imbeciles from abusing their protective status, never having to face the disadvantages of being an idiot.

So, to define a word one must connect it to a phenomenon, an (inter)active appearance.
Something the Moderns never do.
For instance when defining "masculine" the honest man seeks the root in the type's function.
Why did a male have to evolve at all?
Why two sexes and not three, not ten, or none at all?

He does not pull definitions from his arse, like Moderns, and then explain all as social constructs to pretend they've adequately dealt with it.
Then he asks, why do some males exhibit feminine behaviour?
He must explain the exception in relation to the rule.
Why does homosexuality persist, and why is it found only among social species?
What additional function has it acquired, in addition to its original, its primary function of reproduction?

To do so one must define sex, why it emerges, how it necessitates specialized types, and how do these types evolve the traits required to fulfill the function?
What preceded heterosexual reproduction?
What, already evolved automatic reaction, had to be overcome to permit heterosexual reproduction to fulfill its function?

One begins with the basics.
What is sex?
Then one proceeds to clarify the details of the particular types associated with sex.
One does not "just say so" as Moderns wish were so, permitting them to also "just say so", without justifying anything...like how maleness is a social construct, or why homosexuality is no different than heterosexuality, or why sexual behaviour is a product of taste, whimsy, choice, only for humans.
If the argument is that humans are special, exempt from rules that govern other animals, distinct, then why are they so, how are they so, and how does this not relate to the Christian ethos concerning man's, hypothetical, privileged place in the cosmos?

The definition of words, relating to human nature, one begins by observing species other than humans, related to humans, perhaps, then comparing that behaviour to human behaviour.
One does not "just say so" nor does one start with the human artifice of a manmade environment, a social environment to explain everything.

To bring something "down to earth" one brings it down to the soil, not the cement man has paved over it, pretending there was no soil there before.
One does not begin with politics or socioeconomic systems, but with natural systems, natural economics,  upon which these political social systems were added much, much later.

But a retarded moron remains a retarded moron.
His fear, his deep anxieties, his hopes, make it invent methods to escape reality rather than wanting to engage it

Pathetic when the Moderns fall back on humour to escape being exposed as the cowards and imbeciles that they truly are.
The moment they feel vulnerable they claim to be kidding, have been sarcastic all along, were manipulating the other with their guile, did not mean anything because nothing they said was defined and clarified, on purpose.
Their ego is magically saved from being bruised with a simple declaration of humour.
That's why they never actually say anything. they never clarify their positions. They need that "out". That escape hatch of pretending to have been joking.

Pathetic that the ones who desperately want to change the world, accuse others of it.
Like how they dislike natural selection and what appearance show about them, and want to invent a world where they do not matter.
Like how they dislike what male/female are and what this says about homosexuals, and want to change the world to make all mutations normal, functional, a matter of taste.
Like how they dislike how indifferent and cruel to life existence is, and want to change it so that it is accommodating and benevolent and just - they want to vote in their own reality, this is how pathetic they are.
Like how they despise how speiciation works, and what this means about the human races, and want to make the world blind to human genetic diversity, wanting it to be merely superficial, an external shallow garment that means nothing more.

This is how pathetic they are, how desperate to change how the natural world, the world outside their human Nihilistic contrivances works.

They prefer living in their world, and thusly inter-subjectivity is the idea(l) for them.
It means: "We live in a world of our choosing, our collective will; we voted on it, came to a mutually beneficial compromise and now we've altered existence, and nature. Nature, the past, no longer applies to us - we are "free". We agreed on it."
That's how pathetic they are.

How they despise the ones who remind them of what they are, and cannot escape with words.

Objective


---Objective = World
The world preexists the emergence of a consciousnesses that then might develop a subjective relationship with it.
The quality of this subjectivity determines if it will survive and develop further into more precise, sophisticated forms of interpretation of the objective world.
The subject's survival depends on its level of objectivity.  

---The world, or reality, is (inter)active, dynamic, requiring constant reaffirmation and adjustment to it.
It demands adaptation and constant vigilance.

---Reality, and/or world = the sum of all (inter)actions.
Because the sensual method and the processing of the stimuli takes time (translating them into code, neurological pulses to then be transmitted and processes in the brain, reconstructed, interpreted as abstractions), the conscious mind is always lagging behind reality - a 'looking back'.
The noumenon is always a step behind the phenomenon.

---This makes the development of imagination, and its projected methods of dealing with this lag time, a survival advantage...based no efficiency.
The organism can preempt reality, by (re)cognizing patterns in the (inter)activity, then projected in time/space as a method of preparation
Ergo symmetry, order, patterns are attractive to the organism...and we call this beauty.

---The past/nature is never escaped, because the present, the presence (appearance, the apparent) IS a manifestation of this past.
Whether the subjective mind acknowledges this or not, is irrelevant.

---Nature is the sum of all nurturing = past.
You can train (educate) a subjective mind to imitate a behavior (thinking) that may contradict this past/nature, but you cannot help it escape this past.
When the controlled environment ceases to apply, it will return to its innate behavioral predispositions.  

---The world, as dynamic (inter)activity, determines the emergence of the organism, and the development of the brain, that will then evolve apriori methods, and senses of perceiving and of interpreting it, and of dealing with it.  
Interpretation means a translation of stimuli into forms the organic brain can use.

---Subjectivity emerges in relation to the objective world, not separate from it, nor determining it.
The mind does not will itself, nor does it decide to be this or that.
Consciousness, which we call subjectivity, emerges within the world, which preexists it, and makes it possible.
The mind does not choose what world to live in, unless it is sheltered and lives within a highly controlled, artificial, environment which an other determines, and maintains, for it.

---The world preexists the emergence of brains, consciousnesses, that will then become aware of it, as consciousness preexists the self-consciousness that might become aware of self, as another object.  
Subjectivity does not preexist and does not determine the objective world.
The reverse in fact.
The only way a subjective mind can shape the objective world, by intervening, (inter)acting with it, is by first becoming aware of it, clearly, and precisely and honestly - rationally, not emotionally.
It must work for it - agon.
Only then does the possibility of it changing the world rise.
If the subjective mind refuses the existence of objectivity, independent from its subjectivity, it remains, forever, a unwilling subject to its object.
Words, minus effort/work (action), have zero effect on the world.

---Because the (inter)actions of phenomena, are ongoing, making the world dynamic and not a static thing, the world is not knowable, in an absolute way.
It remains mystifying, creating art and the need for spirituality.
The mind then tricks itself, to maintain the illusion of knowability, by projecting itself "outside" space/time" in some "beyond", or "future," from where, like a god, it looks upon the world as a thing, a whole, a singular one - uni-verse.
The one, the singularity, is absent (absent absolute) within the world but, somehow, the mind contradicts this by abstracting it using imagination, as a universe. It considers its own simplified/generalized abstraction as literally the world itself - the dynamic, active, becomes static and complete ...and absolute.

---The objective world, reality, remains indifferent to all subjective interpretations of it.
It is the subjective mind that will face the consequences of failing to be more lucid and objective as it can, so as to increase its potentials of surviving within it.
Only sheltering prevents this cost from becoming severe, thusly making subjectivity another plaything for minds disconnecting from reality.   



****************************************************


Subjective

---The organism is a part of the world, and so a part of the (inter)activity, the dynamism, that makes it possible.

---It's predispositions, tastes, needs, are shaped within the world, it then slowly becomes aware of, guided by these tastes, needs etc.

---An organism is also a psychology, developed due to inherited organ hierarchies which determine its character and the degree each need dominates its consciousness.
This organ inter-activity decides which needs become more central to its (inter)acting, and the degree of their severity, felt as suffering.  

---Divergence in taste, between two different species, represent the specific needs each organism evolved, as a byproduct of its historical (inter)activity, its past/nature.
What is also evolved, are the niche focuses, and the specialized methods used to satisfy these needs.
These differences are similar between species, since all evolved on the same planet and have a shared genetic foundation.
What diverges is the methodology and the niche conditions with which each organism develops the tools to satisfy these needs.  

---Divergence in taste, between two individuals belonging to the same species, are even less divergent than those mentioned previously.
Slight variations in taste are determined by the inherited (genetically, nature) organ hierarchies, which shape the individual's character, and the environmental conditioning (memetically, nurture), which establishes the level each potential strength/weakness reaches.
None of this is determined by choice.
Choice is what happens within what is determined.    

---Consciousness precedes self-consciousness, which makes the process towards self-awareness a gradual one, and an uncertain one.
Similarly, the objective world precedes the emergence of consciousness and the subjective interpretation of it.

---The subjective interpretation of the objective world, and its accuracy, lucidity, honesty, clarity, quality, determines the subjective mind's survival within it. Unless a sheltering environment is established to protect such a mind from its own errors and delusions, making subjectivity a fashionable escape.
Because of this natural cost to a lower quality subjective interpretation of the objective world, natural selection determines which traits are passed on and which perish...again, unless protection of weakness is present.
Using this "cruel" method of selecting higher from lower quality subjectivity the clarity, accuracy and the utility of the apriori methods are validated.
This validation is ongoing, because the world is changing, it is dynamic, forcing upon the subjective interpretation a constant adjustment, adaptation...again, unless it is protected and sheltered from the world...for other reasons.  

---The subjective mind is a forager of patterns.
It is attracted to them because it is an ordering (becoming) dependent on maintaining patterns.
Patterns can be found is almost all (inter)actions (minus chaos - randomness), and are interpreted by the subjective mind as color, taste, smell, tone, rhythm, texture...and so on
Each sensually based interpretation is an interpretation of dynamism, a rate of vibration (energy).
Different rates of (inter)activity are interpreted as different hues, tones, and so on.

---(Inter)Action produces complexity and randomness, as the byproduct of its friction. (Inter)activity produces free-radical energies, as they splinter off the interacting phenomena.
Some settle on a more subtle lower energy, more complex form, or become random, thusly increasing entropy in time/space.
This creates the temporal direction, linear time, which life, as an ordering within the disordering, is a (re)action to.

---Order, symmetry, for the organism which is itself ordering, represents potential.
The organism evaluates, values, the potential, in relation to its own already determined needs.
Therefore, the particularities of taste are shaped by this internal need, manifesting as noumenon, in relation to the perceived phenomenon.
It exposes the organisms' weakness and its desired potentials in relation to its own lack.

---The value of the phenomenon is determined by this relationship of the subjectivity's organic hierarchies, its internal relationships, manifesting as needs, and the objective world, which is engaged via an interpretation, abstraction, translating the phenomenon into a noumenon.
Value does not preexist the emergence of life, or the consciousness which will then appreciate it.  
Value is determined only by this relating of ordering, demanding constant reaffirmation, and world, remaining indifferent to subjectivity, and exhibiting its own patterns and (inter)actions.
All value is a judgment based on a comparison, requiring consciousness, in relation to need.

---Will is the focus of aggregate energies, as these have been determined by organ hierarchies, upon an object/objective.
The object/objective is a projection, of an abstraction, and/or an interpretation, abstraction of a phenomenon.

---The organism in its need to sustain itself within the (inter)activity collects energies, from perceived patterns it (re)cognizes as more similar to itself; it appropriates energies from otherness so as to correct the damage done by temporal friction, and to replenish the energies lost due to constant (inter)activity.
if it is successful and it collects, appropriates, energies in excess of what it immediately needs, it directs said energies towards growth....creativity...pro-creativity.  

---Words, numbers, are the symbols referring to noumenon that may have a greater or lesser reference to the phenomenon.
Their "logic" is self-referential, once a basic apriori abstraction is taken for granted.
This taking for granted is founded on natural selection, but may begin to disconnect from reality if the organism is placed in a sheltering environment where its noetic methods, and their quality, bear no grave repercussions.
words/Numbers are symbols referring to noumena, which are more or less in reference to phenomena - they are approximation, which strive to become more precise...bridging the distance between subject/object, or noumenon/phenomenon, thusly increasing objectivity, clarity.

---The absence of severity decreases respect...as respect is a product of anxiety/fear...of loss.
This creates the circumstances for dumbing-down, psychological retardation.
No fear, no sever cost to an error, makes any delusion, plausible, or equally harmless.
Now persepctivism can become a soothing game of escapism, where definitions, interpretations, of phenomenon, the noumenon, can be inverted, disregarded, detached from reality - a game for children.  

---The need, the anxiety/fear the subjective mind experiences in relation to this indifferent, dynamic objective world, is so great that it must find patterns to comfort itself, increasing its survivability within it.
For some the fear reaches a level where they must believe in some pattern "beyond" time/space, or in the future, or some all-explaining order, to deal with it.

---The simpler subjective mind loses itself in the particularities his needs manifest as - as in taste, preference - and never delve deeper to evaluate the common ground between favoring red rather than green, or preferring fish to chicken.
For such a mind the fashionable thicker woman, versus the more athletic type, represents a change in choice, a democratic decree. He never sees the common ground of symmetry between the bigger girl and the thinner one...the 7/10 hip to waist ration, in women, or shoulder to hip ratio in men; he does not see the proportionality of limp to torso, or the symmetry in eye to nose, to chin dimensions.
He, so desperately wishes to escape judgment, natural determinations, that he is willing to submit to the absurd, exposing how foolish and cowardly he is, than to consider something else.

---When the subjective mind, obsessed with remaining and justifying all subjectivity as equally valid, speaks of "freedom" he means freedom from an objective, indifferent, mystifying, reality.
He wishes to detach from the world so as to become self-referential, solipsistic, and indifferent to the world which is indifferent to him.
This detaching is his liberation, his sense of relief, so gratifying that he becomes obsessed with its pleasing escapism.
Of course, this practice never faces the severity it would in nature, because such minds are protected from their own delusions, so as to shape them into more productive, automatons within the system that offers them this privilege.

Subjective/Objective only designate the relationship between observer and observed.
No observer, no consciousness, no subjective/objective.

A dynamic, fluid, (inter)active world being simplified/generalized, abstracted by a dynamic, (inter)active organism.
The relationship of towards chaos, and resistance to it as towards order, is what creates the dynamic of antagonism, agon.
Only a life can observe, be aware of world, and so only within living organisms, patterns combining to create awareness, relating to patterns, or non-pattern (inter)activity, unaware, does the subject/object relationship emerge.
The organism is a cutting away, distancing from world, falling away, to create ordering within its premises, which can then relate to what is outside these organic premises as subject to object.

Outside this organic relating to inorganic (inter)activity the subject/object concepts are meaningless.
There is only (inter)acting patterns, where the point of their (inter)activity is friction.
This friction is what creates increasing entropy = fragmentation (complexity) and randomness (chaos).

This is the only skin/border between organism and the world.

Subjective/Objective are metaphors that have meaning only in reference to a consciousness, and self-consciousness, awakening to world.
At first, as simple conscious organism, the relation between observer/observed is not problematic, because the organism identifies totally with all its internal processes and is completely focused, involved with otherness.
At this stage the world, as object/objective, is what absorbs the organisms senses.

The problem begins when self-consciousness begins to evolve.
At this point a fragmentation between self and other develops.
the organism becoming aware of self, is now becoming aware of world as a phenomenon which includes self.
The mind/body divide is what causes the subjective/objective philosophical issue.

In reality there is no subjective/objective, there is only Flux, patterns (inter)acting.
The observer/observed divide is caused when there is a consciousness present to observe.
This necessitates a noumenon (abstraction), as a simplification/generalization of a fluctuating dynamic world.
At first, primitive consciousness, there is no issue.
Noumenon represents phenomenon and guides, orients, the organism in relation to it, and by juxtaposing nouemna, the organism evaluates phenomenon in relation to its motive, its objective.
the confusion begins when the organism evolves self-consciousness.
It now conceives self as it would any other phenomenon, but it also senses self as self perceiving.
The world as objective also includes self as objective, and Know Thyself implies the approach of self with self, or harmony of mind with body.
The divide, the disparity, the disharmony between mind and body is caused by the discovery of self as phenomenon, among many other phenomena.
Now the subjective relates to the objective as an alienation, as noumenon/phenomenon disparity.

This is where the choice between subjectivity and objectivity becomes possible, as if one can choose to not be observer observing other, but be observer creating otherness, or observer/observed united as one - both observer and observed.
The survival tool of consciousness becomes mystical, magical.
The mind is now externalized.
It begins to feel itself as an alien mind, an alien will, observing itself, as part of a greater will, a greater mind.
since it can now confuse itself observing self as some alien otherness, then it can conclude that the external mind is universal, and that all phenomena are being observed by this greater mind.
The universe is suddenly felt as being aware - a giant brain, and each consciousness a thought within it.
This is the extreme end of self-fragmentation, compartmentalization creating such fissures that a permanent schism develops.

The Modern dreams of life as a perpetual Spring Break: alcohol binges, drug induced joy, "hos" plastered out of their mind giving themselves away, extraordinary tales, anecdotes of partying and gossiping about events that occurred during those uninhibited get-togethers, when consumption reached its peak and all lost control of their senses.

An orgy of decadence, what they call "partying".

This is their "adult" preferred state.
That, and having the cash to pull it off, obviously.
Money guarantees that the party never ends, and the hedonistic options multiply.
Bragging rights to the one who can outdo the other, who can experience a new pleasure, a new drug, a new plastered situation - reputations built on outperforming the other in depravity.

The difference between U.S. moderns and Moderns from others parts of the world, offers us an insight as to the direction we are headed.
A direction towards the Nihilistic idea(l), the "melting pot", exemplified in the psychologies and the methods used by Americans, compared to Europeans, for example, who agree on basic Nihilistic premises.
In the U.S. we find an advanced state of Nihilism, a "progress" towards the Modern idea(l).
American attitudes, their personality, their depth of thinking, their methods, the way they evaluate things prepares us for the coming New World Order =Globalization American-style, or Americanization, or McDonalization, or, more precisely, Feminization.

All is reduced to the presumed singularity of "I", the absolute subjective, which no world, no objective, nothing outside self can "correct", as long as it remains true to the "Golden Rule", and pays its dues as taxes, as labor (utility for the majority).
Once this starting premises is accepted, completely, conveniently, then all the "individual" needs to focus on is pleasure, materialism, distractions, debauchery, decadence, consuming.  
The "I", impotent to defend itself against the system, becomes a willing slave, a worker, dreaming only of access to resources and services with minimal labor - money is the symbol of abstracted resources/services.
Identity is another product, a fashion, a trend, every "individual" can purchase if he has the money.

All value judgments must adhere to the shared standard = money.
All distinctions of identity are reduced to money, or privileged attained through State, through institutions.
All other value judgments, all other distinctions, are relegated to the sphere of personal taste, personal choice, a self-contained delusion which is only expected to not disturb that of the other "individual".
money, usefulness to the majority represented by a monetary code, is all the "individual" needs to live in his/her own world - all else can be dismissed, ignored, laughed at, ridiculed, mocked, forgotten = cynicism.
If you pay your dues and you do not disturb anybody, you can believe in whatever you like; you can value whatever you like in whatever way you like - personal insecurities, inherited organic weaknesses, are all adjusted to the individual proclivity of a psychology directing itself to comfort itself, to cleanse itself of its past.

Detachment, disconnection, from sensuality, where even the senses can be doubted selectively always, is the relieving gift of labor, and the accumulation of access to resources/services.
"If you got the money, honey, we got your disease. In the jungle..."


Who can withstand the seduction of this possibility?
It's the American dream.
It's American "freedom".

The "I don't give a shit, if it doesn't affect my enjoyment" attitude.
And one doesn't have to "give a shit" if he's got the credit, to purchase detachment.
The all-healing code of abstracted resources/services, correcting away centuries of natural-selection.  
American psyche reflects this "joyous" salvation, full of undisturbed hope - the reckless go-getter, knowing he will be saved from himself, if things go bad; the all-or-nothing mentality of Nihilistic either/or; the "might makes right" feeling no shame.

PostSubject: Re: Nihilism: Signs & Symptoms Thu Sep 10, 2015 8:41 am

In all it's inversions, Nihilism displays a consistency in method and intent.

The intent, is to escape past/nature, the method is to take phenomena, the observable, and  reverse it.
This consistence continues when the Modern version of this ancient psychological attitude, attempts to deal with detractors and challengers.

The Modern is obsessed with references and deference.
With the first he implies power/intelligence/knowledge, without having to actually present it
He will refer to some vague or not source, which he hides behind, without actually having to understand it himself.
The most popular sources are scientific ones, usually referring to a particular specialists, or theory, or data base. The modern need not actually understand what is being said, or why, he can simply sample the conclusion, and stand behind them - power through association.

He will defer to famous, or vague, icons, the former as a way to impress upon the other the insinuation of parity, and the latter to impress upon him access to unique information - as a priest implies unique access to knowledge nobody, but him, can comprehend and channel.
In this case, as with the first, he need not actually display anything, but only imply it.  

But the inversion begins before this point, and it has become a popular practice among pseudo-intellectual Moderns.
Whereas an honest mind would begin by finding error, in the other's position, offering alternatives, and then proceed to speculating on the reasons why the error occurred, or why this other fell victim to it, the Modern inverts the practice, exposing him as a charlatan and a individual coming to the table of contemplation in bad faith: he begins with pseudo-psychobabble concerning the opposition's frame of mind, his upbringing, his motives, and only then does he deal with the topic itself, with soem vague comment, or the usual referring/deferring, which requires no personal input.  

This would be analogous to attacking Freud, on a personal level, speculating on the reasons for his addiction to cigars, which resulted in his death, or researching his biography to find information to  slander him, to make insinuations about his sexual life, which would degrade his theories, before one challenges his positions...perhaps remaining only on that ad hominem easy level of innuendo and dealing with the Freudian theories by deferring, to some other thinker, or referring to some data base, as if the theories had been sufficiently understood, by this buffoon, and then dealt with in this infantile method.

The inversion is easy, and the path-of-least-resistance is seductive, if the goal is desperately needed, and the desired conclusions calls the mind to them, like an oasis in the desert.
The Modern has no clue why races are a social construct, or why male/female are culturally imposed, he just likes the idea(l) and it is popular, which adds to its persuasiveness.
Because he has no clue, what he does is attack the messenger, already "knowing" he is wrong because his conclusions do not match with the prevailing narrative - he attempts a character assassination because he cannot destroy the messengers message, nor can he defend his own positions, of which he only knows their "goodness" their popularity, their positive motives - and because he cannot understand the "reasoning" behind his desired outcome he refers to sources he cannot show an understanding of, and defers to thinkers he cannot comprehend himself.

In a world with no past, no attachments to nature, no acceptable objective source of identity, the many will pretend to be different, unique, free, with superficial appearances, covering a shared uniform idea(l), and the few will pretend to be the same, with superficial appearances, hiding disagreement, disparity, a threatening challenge; hiding a forgotten connection to the world.

When the objective is revealed, the symtomology is verified.

Confusion between what "ought to be", the "perfect, best" world, as in the idea(l) world, the best for mankind, hypothetically, and how the world is, and forever will be, for life.

The need to degrade all ideals as lacking perfection, is part of the state symptoms
a way to equalize without arguments, nor reasoning.

Books such the one about r/K Selection and how it relates to American left/right wing politics fills in the gaps, at least within the contexts of Americanism, and the culture of no culture.
The book, of course, does not stray outside the Modern Nihilistic paradigm, but makes a valiant, though conveniently incomplete attempt to connect American politics, and the western Modern meme, with genetics - reproductive strategies in particular.


Absent from the K-Selected individual's sense of self, his most basic identifier of the in-group, is race - the identifier of shares genes, bloodlines, that crosses national, idealistic, political boundaries.
A wolf pack knows its own by smell, because they share genes, and ti knows other wolves by smell and appearance.
It's selection method is shaped by this awareness.
 
Other than that, and how the Anonymous Conservative settles, in the end, to pay lip-service to the prevailing narrative in the U.S., the theory exposes the relationship of politics, morals, ideals, principles, and genetics.

[You must be registered and logged in to see this link.] is where I try to expand on it, and bring it in harmony with my own positions on Nihilism, Modernity as dis-ease, and the symptom of feminization.

The Modern exposes himself as being a covert conservative. He wants to conserve, the system he feels most comfortable within, and only rebels, becomes a revolutionary, when the system hinders him, does not protects his weakness, does not permit allowances for weakness, and stupidity.
As was described in the r/K selection book the r/selection uses the rabbit method: live fast, copulate often, reproduce many, and then suffer the consequences of your weakness.
The K/Strategy uses the wolf's method, or the carnivores/omnivores.  
I will not get into the details.

The strategy here is to ridicule, level it all down, so that all superior/inferior can be dismissed as equally incomplete, all equally indecisive.
Christians use this against Evolution Theory: they accentuate gaps in the theory's knowledge, and understanding, to imply that it is just as likely as their "Creationism".
Once all has been leveled down to being equally wrong, the deciding factor is emotion, or in the case of Democracy the vote.
The vote decides, periodically, and nobody suffers from a loss, for long.
All is up for grabs every four years - gravity, evolution, flat earth, god.
All undecided....always voted upon.

Binary thinking, leading to dualism, and how it relates to Nihilism.

To posit a positive absolute, a one, one has already implied its negation, its opposite absolute opposite.
God implies His opposite in Satan.
One, the numerical/linguistic symbol already implies a nil, to make it meaningful.
Value implies valueless, otherwise why would you need to propose it without a purpose, a motive, an idea(l), as some cosmic innate essence governing all including phenomenon lacking life?
The proposition implies a goal, an objective against which it evaluates itself, and hen it is not openly stated it implies a motive to deceive, by using a word that can mean anything to an individual who understands it in relation to his/her own objectives and ideals.
It is how the Christians used love, out of sync with the natural world, to imply and manipulate, allowing the believer to understand the word in any way (s)he wanted, overwhelmed by the pleasant feelings/emotions, images, the word triggered.
Love was for them what "value", one, justice: a word that triggers positive feelings, and desires, because all individuals need love and to be valued, when they belong to a social species.

Life means something when death negates it, and only if we understand life as an absolute, eternal, perfect condition, and not a dynamic process.

The Nihilist's "thinking" is tied up in this Gordian Knot, this binary box, and he makes use of its presuppositions to defend his own inclusion within its premises.
This type of mind understands the concepts in absolute terms and so also negates them absolutely, producing an either/or mentality.

If, for example, there is no absolute omniscient Being, then all knowledge/power is absolutely negated, all is equally ignorant; if absolute certainty is not possible, no truth to be found, then all opinions are equally and absolutely wrong; in the absence of omnipotence all is equally and absolutely weak; if not one then nil; if not absolutely positive, then absolutely negative.

The Nihilists begins to think from a position of absolute nil, or absolute one, having already implied the opposite to complete the mental model, to close the loop, and square the box with a neat boundary.

As such, if nobody can prove anything absolutely, then all opinions are equally possible and impossible.
So what is there to do with no absolute Divine Law giver?
A compromise to help life go by - an agreement, a vote.

Challenging a claim of superiority, whether it be about physical beauty, power, mental acuity, intelligence or reason, one does not just state that the one proposing it is wrong, or arrogant for daring to make such a claim, one offers a counter-claim to disprove, negate, offer an even more superior proposition.

One the counter-argument has proven to actually be superior one can then proceed to analyze what made the other fall into such a grave, and misinformed mistake.
Beginning with the psychoanalysis only exposes how unable the actor is in the face of the claim.
This is Top<>Down thinking in all its glory.

Of course, implying that everything is imperfect, and less than absolute, is easy, because all is so, but making the leap of faith from that to the idea(l) that all is equally true, or equal in clarity, reason, and objectivity, is one only a coward, a retard, and an Modern Nihilist would attempt and would be satisfied with.

Offering something to someone who has not earned it may gratify your inner doubts, but it only serves to nurture the failings which could not earn what was given.
Giving a child a prize for coming in second, or last, only nurtures the weakness that could not earn the top spot, nor strive towards it.
An immediate gratification, an easy pleasure, for him and you, but worthless, destructive, destined to produced pain and suffering in the long run.
Offer respect to someone who does not merit it and you propagate the weakness that produced it.
Give love to someone, just because you have to, just because you want o give pleasure and receive it in turn, and because it is the "right" thing to do, and you make the pain withheld all the more devastating, in the future.

"Truth is there is no truth".
An antidote to Judeo-Christian/Islamic dis-ease?
No.
The one God mimics death, while the maggots feed on his cadaver, transferring his virus to them.

With the loss of the absolute, in God (as love, as truth), the populations had to find an alternative to fill in his absence...or go mad, raping and pillaging when all that kept them at bay was that fear/promise; their "morals" no more than self-preservation pretending to be innate goodness.
You can see their nervousness when their master's whip is threatened with a blade - they fear they and not only other, will revert to their natural state of base, animals.
From absolute positive to absolute negative.
With no "truth" then all are absolutely ignorant of truth.
Equality in he negation.
The inversion of truth, where equality under God, as truth, is converted to equality in ignorance - subjectivity.
The deciding factor...popularity, the vote.

But the more clever Nihilists were not satisfied with this loss of control and the possibility for mass manipulation the word "truth" offered.
It had to be returned to their panoply, if the herd was to be exploited, effectively.
How so?

Easy...
"Truth is there is no truth" based on a linguistically produced paradox, became "all is equally truth & untruth" of inter-subjectivity, and then "truth is truthing", or "truth IS truth"....the word given an ontology - also "value is valuing" or "love is loving" or "pleasure is pleasing".
The means become the end . the verb converted to a noun.
Anthropomorphism is reborn.
You begin with a "positive" word such as "value, love, pleasure, good, moral, one, consciousness, truth"...etc. and you mystify it by disconnecting it from its phenomenal reference points, converting it into a pure noumenon, a pure abstraction.
Christians used "love" in place of God...but any positive word can stand in for the same concept, the same feeling the word god produces.
The concept god is nonsensical, absurd, non-existent, but the word, as symbol, referring to an emotion, in this case positive, is applicable, is useful.

After the Cold War the U.S. herd had been immunized to the concept of communism to the point where the mention of any word referring to the abstractions communism promoted as world-binding, as humanitarian, as "good", caused a passionate psychosomatic reaction - a defensive mechanism trained into the population after decades of brainwashing.
Most did not know what Communism was, but their reaction was automatic, severe, and certain.
How, then, does one reintroduce the underlying dis-ease of Marxism into a population immunized to it?
You alter it, you change its strain, you adapt it to the new conditions.
You make it invisible, friendly, to the body's natural defences.

A memetic dis-ease uses words to infect the body.
This is the reverse course genetic viruses use.
With genetic viruses the body is infected, and then the mind is affected.
With memetic viruses the mind is infected, and then the body is affected.

Communism morphed into Venus Project, and/or Transhumanism, and returned under a new guise - using new symbols, new words the same factors that had seduced all those millions could evade the immunization, and reintroduce themselves as new pleasure giving goodness, new Utopian promises.

The body's immune system cannot detect the dis-ease until the body is infected, and then the symptoms give it away.
It is only the symptom that exposes the virus.
How would one reintroduce the Judaeo-Christian God, and all that this concept represents, into minds, who after decades of knowledge, and literacy have become repulsed by its older form?
Sophisticated systems require more knowledgeable sophisticated slaves, which makes the older methods of infecting them and manipulating them obsolete.

When "love" as God, has been used, then why not "value" as God?

Love loving, value valuing, self selfing, pleasure pleasuring.

The "positive" word is sanctified, by disconnecting it of its earthly references, and it becomes a new word for the old God, now being resurrected.
With a new word for god, new priests, and new hopes arise, but the same types converge upon it, as they once did and will forever.  
Christianity infected Rome through its weakest points, by evolving: covering itself in select Hellenic metaphors.
The Romans ignored it until it was too late...they having become weak and weathered after centuries of success and dominance.
A sophisticated virus adopts the body's smell to escape detection.  
Cancer is not noticed until it has spread to the point where the symptoms make it apparent.

Too much credit has been given to the Semites.

They did not invent the memetic virus that would morph into Christianity, when it came in contact with the Greco-Roman body, they invented the inversion that reinterpreted the disease into health, shame into pride, weakness into strength, ignorance as gnosis, and with it all was inverted by them and only for them.
A clever form of masturbation but one that quickly became infectious among the growing numbers of inferiors in every tribe, and this included the Greeks and Romans.
Conflict between mother and daughters, began when mother refused to give her daughters their dowry.
Elitism of the slave - Jew paradox.
Choseness was the deal-breaker for the inferior in other tribes, forcing them to go off on their own, and seek out new interpretations of the same virus. They found it in the Greeks and their cosmopolitanism, and in the west in Persian Aryanism.
Christianity is Judaism wearing a Greek mask.

The disposition to this existential dis-ease goes back to the dawn of man.
It refers to a genetic configuration and how it relates to existence, to world as indifferent, uncertain threatening.
A genetic disposition that would make the organism defined by it a natural follower, an omega.

In recent times the disconnect language offers, has opened up marketing schemes to new methods.

When the "word is God" and "God is the word", any word will do if it feels good, wanting your God to be good.
Keeping the word ambiguous, free to be applied in any which way, satisfies the Nihilists dream of freedom from reality - escape, salvation.

The moment you reattach the word to its worldly roots, you connect the abstraction in your head, via the symbol, to the phenomenon, the apparent, the behavior, you return the abstraction to the order it emerged from, and you deny the Nihilists, their chaos, their malleable toy of self-flattery.
Order is probability-  probability is a reduction of possibility. The Modern loves expanding possibilities, because that's how he escapes the probable. Order is fascism, the authority of nature upon their need for liberation form determining past/nature.  


The irony of it is that existence, due to (inter)activity, is expanding space, increasing possibilities, chaos....and this exposes the Nihilists are conservative in their essence.
It is the so called "conservative" that proves to be the true rebel, the real revolutionary, because he proposes a reaction against entropy, an order despite disordering....and whether you agree with his proposition, his ideal, or not, he is the only wanting to progress back towards the Big Bang, the near-perfect order of the incomplete singularity.

And the pagan stands outside this Nihilistic paradigm with the two poles of absolute chaos and order - left/right, 1/0.
Not as passive but joyous participant.
His enemies are these Nihilist humans - these charlatans and liars - these innocent saints who fancy themselves world-changers.

In the same way they manipulate language to repackage old lies, they've understood old masters, converting them to their side, baptizing them their ancestors.  
When words are detached from phenomena, there is no limit to what a mind can do with them - the power of magic.
This is what seduces young boys to follow the Messiah out into the desert, leaving behind their flesh and blood..Promises a new fleshing, they tear themselves apart, to be reborn.

Philosophy describes and then prescribes, it does not begin with the pharmacon and then finds diseases to heal.
Beware of the man with grand gestures and big claims, he is lying to himself to convince others.

When philosophy defines phenomena, it can help the mind orient itself, and find paths towards a desirable goal.
It is this goal which eventually creates alliances, as others are also on that path towards the same idea(l) though form a different direction.
I don't want to change world, because then I would have to scrap all my world.
I study world, especially how humans intervene and warp it.  
I study self, in relation to world.
I adapt self to world, so as to attain my goal.
I do not change world in relation to self....first because I cannot and second because I am not so arrogant as to think I can, and I know that if not for the protection of others, I would suffer the consequences for such a delusion.
World is not only humanity.
Humanity is part of world, it is not WORLD!!!
If I restrict myself to this bubble of human environments, I am sheltered, cocooned, retarded.

Within manmade environments words are magical...words are how exchanges are made.
They are for the meme what blood is for the gene.

Cost/Benefit is the evaluation of the repercussion/consequences for every activity.
A projection in time/space.
Consciousness evolved to utilize this so as to gain efficiency in its (inter)activities.
if all were conscious there would be no advantage to consciousness - if all was love, love would be worthless. .

Value is the word we use to measure cost/benefit judgments.
Value is meaningful to an organism in relation to a motive, a movement towards a goal - a will.
It is meaningless outside this context...just as consciousness is meaningless outside life, and so is love, and so is one, and so is self.

Cost/Benefit is not done outside organic unities - life.
If there were a universal mind/consciousness evaluation, judging, there would be no need for (inter)activity.
The harmonious particles would find each other from across space/time, directed by this will, and unite, like two long lost lovers, embracing into a self.
They would not bother with interacting with what is not of their kind.
The universe would be imploding, not exploding - gravitating toward a singular I - God.
Order would be increasing, not decreasing.    
Life everywhere.

Addiction to subjectivism means that you can believe if you find a group of people who agree with you.
with no external standard to validate human judgments, the subjectivist, seeks his own kind, to remain glued to his perspective.
This is why popularity, numbers, are so important to them.

As with everything else, as his essence dictates, the Nihilist, the modern, works backwards, Top<>Down...

He begins with a psychoanalysis of the opinion giver, and may, or may not, deal with the opinion.
Most of the time he is satisfied with his own "degradation" of the source, to conveniently ignore what the topic and the argument is.

Bottom<>Up thinking begins with the opinion, and if it is found to be wanting, then proceeds to the source, in order to understand how this error came about.

The first is subjectively founded, the latter objectively based.
The first need not use words or reasoning in an ordered manner, but only be interested in the effect his "thinking" is having.
The second is stringent with the usage of words and of process, abiding by natural/temporal rules.

Medicine (pharmakon – φαρμακο), to cure a dis-ease, is often rejected by the one infected by a virus.
He enjoys the attention his illness attracts: pity, curiosity etc.
He cannot stomach the cure, preferring to remain ill than taste its bitterness.
Even fever can be enjoyed erotically.

Love loving, value valuing, self selfing, pleasure pleasuring.

That was actually what Dante taught and infected the west.

Love loving itself.

Realizing Beatrice/Beautitude is impermanent, that which stays forever and will not leave you cannot be the beloved, now here, now gone, but your own love for love and loving itself, which is more stable and more in one's control.

The desire for the changeless and to equate change as suffering is the reflex ion of the life-exhausted souls.

How to use ambiguity, and creative linguistics to converge tow diametrically opposite idea(l)s, and world-views.....
M-Theory has been the name given to the not yet constructed theory which will unite Quantum and Newtonian physics.
An ambitious endeavour, since it already presupposes that a whole is in existence, and will be discovered – the absolute.
Christianity can be thought of as a metaphysical M-theory uniting two opposite moral and metaphysical attitudes in an unholy matrimony.
Christianity is the ugly child of this unnatural, forced, union.
The mutant grandchildren were not less ugly than the mother.
The contradictions so ungainly, so monstrous, so disproportional, that they had to wear a masks, to hide their deformity, and walk on crutches to not trip and break their necks.
Since then many have tried to reintroduce the blood of more vigorous, healthy combinations, to heal these intellectual Cyclopes, consuming human flesh like candy-cane.
A metaphysical M-Theory to rival that of a coming physics M-theory.
Every so often a new magician comes along, an alchemist, claiming to have done the math and resolved the contradictions, but the math is wrong, because it is self-referential, and it only makes sense when the symbols are given new meanings, and their order is altered to impress and to convince using ambiguity.
Such a magi will be angered if you do not trust his calculations, accusing you of stupidity because you cannot see the brilliance in his algorithms, and the power they promise.

How do you make 2+3=1?
You change one of the symbols, the [+] to a [-].
You baptize it with holy water, and make the negative positive.

Negative/Masculine Nihilism
Beyond – Past


Φ

“Order” is the word used to describe this absent absolute.
In its emerging stages it formulates the conception of a singular Deity, a one.
The masculine nihilist will find this totalitarian regime deplorable.
For him the promise land is where absolute chaos presents itself to him, like a maiden begging to be inseminated with his organizing ideals.

If the male judges his past/nature to be insufficient to cope to excel in world he will desire to nullify it, and bring all others down to his nil, with him.
Honesty, his male pride, cannot be twisted to a feminine lie.
His only solution is self-destruction, and if he is also resentful of others continuing to exist, and cope with what he cannot, he will dream of world destruction as his idea(l).  

Φ

The “positive” one, the absolute singularity, is a duplicitous concept.
It attempts to signify a negation of a negative, when the negative is presupposed, implying its own positivity.
What it, actually, signifies is an end to existence, when existence is defined as (inter)activity (flux), with the implosion of space/time into a monad, a theoretical oneness, also called God.
With the feminine type of nihilism almost the same effect, in relation to life, is implied with an explosion of space/time and the attainment of infinite possibilities, which signifies the elimination of probability (chaos).
Life, or consciousness is nullified in chaos, whereas in the absolute order of a singularity life is made irrelevant.

Φ

“Negative” is pure, an affirming of Nihilism.
Direct and honest, it hides only the motive, the reason for all this destruction and leveling all to nothing.
The masculine spirit wishes to destroy what order exists either because it shames him, through his failure to match it, or because it wishes to destroy so as to rebuild something in accordance to his own tastes: leveling of order to build upon chaos a new order.
A less duplicitous form of Nihilism.  

Φ

Anarchism
An example of masculine nihilism.
It could only be part of what is called the “left wing” political spectrum.

Anarchism is a ruse.
It declares an antithesis to an arche {αρχη}, and yet it is driven by one; it rages against hierarchies, and yet it proposes a new one; it attacks order, and yet it promotes a new one.
Its duplicity is more direct.
What destruction, levelling, it dreams of, is a kind of bulldozing preparatory stage; necessary for a new foundation to be built.
Flatten things down, convinced that in the emptiness produced it will rise up from the dirt, to become the new master – a desperate attempt, which would rather destroy “what is” than live in it.    

Φ

The male need to order the chaos is an expression of his libidinal desire to impose his will upon otherness.
The first step towards lucidity, awareness, is the nullification of what cannot be processed, or integrated into a coherent concept, an abstraction.
Consciousness begins with nullification.    

Φ

In its extreme masculine nihilism leads to the depression of absolute negation–pure nihilism or nihilism proper.

Φ

God, the absolute representation of the Masculine, is both a one and a nil.
Oneness, absolute order, would be the elimination of all possibilities, or their restriction, within the singular probability of One/God.
It is an annulment of space/time, within its noetic implosion into a singularity.
Ordering is the exclusion or rejection of possibilities, so as to enable the desirable possibilities to become more probable, therefore absolute order, whatever name it is given, is the rejection of all possibilities and the presence of a singular absolute probability.  

ΦΦΦ

Positive/Feminine Nihilism
Immanent – Future


Φ

“Positive” Nihilism is duplicitous, false, and full of promise and hope.
A feminine appeal offering itself as a means to an end.
Through the feminine form of nihilism possibilities expand to embrace the infinite, the “all is possible” universe of chaos – randomness with no order, no probability restricting possibility

Φ

Sexual types and their genetic psychology will determine which type of nihilistic mimetic variant the individual will be attracted to.
Where the more masculine will find God a competitor, preferring the chaos to build his sacred Kingdom for himself, the feminine psyche will be easily seduced by the masculine promise of a God.  

Φ

Nihilism acquires the sexual traits of the mind.
The more feminine psyches will be seduced by the power of change, though it is tending towards absolute chaos.
And like all shameless lovers this irresistible force will promise them, through its priestly representatives, the fantastic, and the undeniable, just to get under their… skin.  

Φ

A nihilist will not come with empty hands.
This will expose him to others and to himself.
A nihilist comes bearing gifts of hope and positivity.
He hides from himself his inner emptiness by filling it with words.
He hides from himself.

Φ

The “positivity” aspect of this projected nullification of the present is that it remains a promise, seducing the mind but never disappointing it, because it is never attained.
It is the promise of hope, and the feminine form of nihilism.
Surrender to entropy becomes the surrender to possibility, fraught with unfathomable opportunities – the siren song.

Φ

The duplicitous soul will find nothing wrong with lying to his own self to inherit eternity.
Like all hypnotic states this one relies on the active, compliance of the one being hypnotized.
Exposing the hypnosis as a fraud only exposes the self-hypnotized to their duplicity.
They will take this unraveling personally.

The hypnotic priest has nothing to worry about in this performance.
Though he may be exposed as a peddler of dreams, the purchaser is part of the lie, and the one with the most to lose.    

Φ

In a feminizing meme/culture, the Modern, nihilism takes on its feminine mask, attempting to harmonize internal structures with its all-leveling force of forgetfulness.
Nihilism becomes a method for internal mind-control – it reduces the elements that can create friction by slowly smoothing/eroding away natural processes.  
The word “Modern” can only refer to this socioeconomic cultural state.

Φ

Manipulating the internal is how a female asserts herself upon the dominant, externally, male.
The effete male, the emasculated, beta, finds here his only hope of salvation.
What he cannot deal with, applying what (s)he’s inherited, is compensated with words, redefining reality to be less harsh in relation to this inherited past/nature.

Modern Mind-Control
Shaping Perspectives

Φ

1- Repeat Official Dogma
The consistent repetition of imagery, words, associated with ideas, emotions, constructing a shared consciousness by creating an immediate past.

2- Emotion
Use Shame, Guilt, and Ridicule to silence any contrary position.
Use love, joy, humour, hope in relation to the preferred world view.
Place a high price to any exploration of a possibility that contradicts the official narrative; impose a higher standard of proof on any possibility that does not agree with the official dogma.

3- Confuse Knowledge for Understanding
Make the knowledge of a word associated with an idea synonymous with the understanding of the idea.
Education becomes a way of turning minds dependent on institutions.
In more complex specializations train the mind to follow established methodologies, precedent, and the shared manual.

4- Restrict thinking to binary dualism, the either/or
Any contrary opinion must be categorized as being on the opposite camp which is preferably one characterized by positions which accept the basic principles of the preferable dogma – McLuhan’s thesis applies.
Playing both sides of the dualistic paradigm restricts all conceptions, forcing them into seemingly contrary positions which, nevertheless, never challenge the shared underlying principles.

5- Inhibit Pattern Recognition
The inhibition of patterns recognition restricts the minds ability to reason independently.
Dependence on authorities to educate it on what is perceived, and what it means, institutionalizes the individual.
To further inhibit free-thought insecurity in one's own judgements is promoted, as no idea is taken seriously if it is not referring or deferring to authority figures, or is not speaking on behalf of an established institutionalized perspective.
Even if the mind is able to perceive patterns and it can analyse possible explanations, it is embarrassed to risk an opinion unless it has been supported by an established authority or it has been accredited by an established institution.
Of course this only applies to subjects that are considered undesirable, or socially reprehensible, or perspectives that contradict the internal cohesion.
Judgment in all other areas is uninhibited.  
To gain this institutional credibility one must first absorb, and perhaps internalize, the official knowledge and its acceptable understanding.

6- Cultivate confusion rather than Lucidity
The usage of language to imply depth, complexity, which cannot be displayed, is how a concept is converted from absurd to feasible.
Detaching words from external reference points is the first step before the second of redefining their meaning, by connecting them to noetic constructs.
Hiding the process in unnecessary complexity is how the vague, exploiting emotion and human vulnerability, convinces the many, creating an inter-subjective reality – a world within the world.
Nihilistic meme detaching from gene.
What paradoxes remain as the by-product of this idea(l) being contrary to the real, can be easily smoothed over, using the same method of (re)definition and word placement within a sentence, when the mind has been properly identified (as a fellow mind in desperate need), and indoctrinated (educated). The other will want to be convinced, otherwise he is excluded from the sheltering community of delusion, of Nihilistic detachment. His willingness will make him an agency of his own imprisonment.

There is, perhaps, no simpler way to unify nihilists than their shared fear of chaos - of randomness.
Even where there is no pattern perceived, they must assume that one is present, but hidden from them.
Even when there is no reason, no justice, they must hope that one is present; even when there is no spirit, no god, they must have faith that somewhere beneath it all, underneath and above it all, there is something, someone, that makes it all make sense - something that will justify their suffering and give meaning to their life.

Binary thinking - 1/0...even the negative is given a name and made intimate, known, less threatening.  

If no absolute order, then a absolute disorder must be converted to complexity.

Being a Jew means being a nihilist in the west - the twisting and overturning, of reality, to convert the world to its opposite, satisfying the fragile mind.

The Jew awaits the "true messiah" - he will be the one bringing a final "truth", a final absolute judgment, solution to the existential "problem".
Every Jew wants to be that Messiah, after the old Jew, Jesus, proved to be anything but that, no matter how Saul tried to rewrite history.
Messianism is at the heart and soul of a visceral Jew, no matter what race, creed, or nation he was born into.
If not to surrender to it, he wants to be it.
He sees idols and false prophets everywhere, all harbingers to the coming of the one, true savior.

He is expected, immanent, coming.
There, but not present; present, but not obvious, ambiguous, hidden, somewhere, everywhere.
He hides in the clouds and in stones, and in tides and in wind storms.

I am a realist, in the sense that I negate, annul, the nihilist's position which is always contrary to what is perceived, experienced, real, natural.

I am bound by world, the apparent, and cannot let my mind wander and fantasize, but, even, when I imagine my constructs must abide by real forms, and real experiences, and natural laws.
My words are restricted not by my whims and emotions, my ambitions, my pleasures, but by the world, that places a limit to what I can refer them to, and what order the words I use can be placed in a sentence, representing a causal continuity.

A Nihilist in not restricted in this way....(s)he feels "free" from nature, from past, from appearances, and can play with words and concepts, combining and placing words, representing concepts, in any sequence, fantasize, using them, any reality that makes him feel good, that flatterers him, that makes his projected fantasy, his noetic abstraction, plausible.
Nihilists come in more varieties because they share the same antipathy towards what challenges their ideals, and self-interests, and their desirable objectives.
Their subjectivity is unrestricted by any objective world, and though they disagree with each other, they agree on the basic ideals that maintain their subjectivity free from any external standard.
They "agree to disagree" because their subjectivity must remain free from any standard that would make this "agreement" void of meaning and a product of cowardice.
The core of Nihilism is their need to annul nature/past, or all present manifestation of this past - all appearances.
All Nihilists do so to differing degrees, and different levels of passion, but all of them share the same desire to partially, or completely, dismiss the apparent as illusion, or to imply a secret, deeper, reality, underlying the apparent, or to reject all concepts based on this determined past/nature, or a need to rearrange concepts to bring about a predetermined, in their mind, outcome, and then justify it backwards.

The realist begins from the ground up.
He starts with metaphysics and works upwards through physics towards the roof, which is a mirroring of his starting metaphysics, the entire construct remaining cohesive and in harmony, as much as this is possible.
He does not start with a predetermines moral ideal, but begins with the apparent working upwards towards the idea(l), and in the course of his climb, he acquires the morals and principles to support him in his ascent.
He does not noetically fly up to the peak, and then free-fall down, he climbs slowly, methodically upwards, restricted in his movement not by his personal needs, his fantasies, his desires, but by the mountainside, the environment, and his own physical and mental potentials.
The mountain-climber is limited by the mountain itself, in what movements he can make, what directions he can take - the mountain and his own skills determine his ascent.

A Modern , a Nihilist, would deny his annulment of the real, with his own obsessive commitment to his own subjective ideal.

The question, he asks himself: "How to live the best life?" is, on its own, an indication of his intent, in relation to world.
This question would follow an honest, courageous, exploration of world, and not precede and dominate thinking.
For him "philosophy" begins with this human question, and always returns to it.
He is not interested in how the world is, but only how he can cope with it, how he wants the world to be.
He approaches world after he has determined what he prefers, and then tries to justify it in relation to how world is.
He takes himself as an example and assumes that all perspectives are like his own: expressions of personal need, desire, want, and that, like him, the goal is already in mind when exploring the world, and the objective is never world itself, but a part of it, or a contradiction of it.

A pure Nihilist cannot even accept his own senses as legitimate, and his own mind as a tool of judging.
He looks for reasons and methods to think without thinking, to evaluate without the risks and costs.
He wants authorization, and a safety net before he dares to decide.
The world he perceives is more of a problem, a wound to be healed; more of a contradiction of what he desires.
His idealism is so profound he is convinced that he is being reasonable, when he is a naive romantic, and that he is following the only option, as he declares all certainty a form of fascism.

From the musings of the modern Greek philosopher Ramfos Stelios...

The paradox of time.
Those who only think only of the future, are dominated by the past.
With no present, time compressed as a “living in the moment” they only project a coming future, and they can only draw from memories, from the past.

In my own world-view, when the past is denied, forgotten, it manifests subconsciously as a repressed libido, exploding into a future completely disconnected from past.
This is what the moderns call “freedom”.  
The past expresses itself as one experiences dreams – a collection of random memories combined in bizarre, monstrous irrational, unnatural forms.
In dream the brain is detached from the manifestation of past, as presence.
The dreamer is free to combine the past, to remember it as he pleases, at will, unburdened by the ongoing present, the apparent.
The term, at will, is a bit misleading, because none of this occurs on a conscious level, but is the product of automatic processes, emotions, passions, directing this process. The will falls back to tis primordial role of directing organic processes with no intervention from a rational, abstracting mind.
In this state the dreamer constructs imagery, story-lines, in accordance to his/her internal turmoil, his internal, subjective world – some of it lucid, rational (daydreams), the tip of the iceberg, but under the surface a mountain of ice floating in the ocean of his organ (inter)activity.
In daydream the imagination can construct anything, using past experiences/memories, but he can remain aware that all this is fantasy because he is still awake, and has access to the present, the apparent, that is reminding him of the real order of things, re-minding him, bringing him to mind, the actual manifestation of past as presence.
The dreamer, on the other hand, is numb, his senses disconnected from external stimuli. All the memories, sensations, come from internal sources, are entirely subjective, and there is no external objective world to re-mind him, to correct him, to make him feel embarrassed for mistaking them for the real.
This dream-world, is what Ramfos means by an individual lacking a presence, a present, and being totally dominated by the past, because this is his only reference point.
The dreamer has no present, and so the past is all he has to pull from and project as possibility towards future.
The dreamer, the modern, is the conduit through which the past is re-combined in creative forms focusing him to the coming future. The future is always “better” because it is a rearrangement unhindered by presence, the apparent.
He "lives" in a future, undisturbed by the present; a confusion of past arranged in creative ways, reflecting his personal psychology, his internal hierarchies.
The mind is a refractor, splitting the past/nature, and focusing the desirable color into the future, and scattering the other colors as white-noise.
Human cultures are this absence of present – an artificially constructed present, where the past can be reinterpreted, re-defended, re-membered, in whatever way it suits the coming future.
Nihilists are dominated by future, and are the quintessential "forward thinker", the Modern – always on the cutting edge of what is most current.
He is a man with no present, no appearance – denying appearances as too inhibiting to his need to recombine past in whatever way he chooses.
His present is always under-construction, because it is a dream-world.

Temporally he "exists", consciously, in the extremes: absolute past <> absolute future.
The binary poles of the nihilistic paradigm – either/or: absolute order <> absolute chaos.
The present is a distraction, something to ignore and numb himself to, so that the past can be rearranged in more vivid projections of future.

[You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]

In this prism, language reflects this fragmented selective confusion.
Words are rearranged to accommodate the dreamer’s internal landscapes.
Sentences re-present this mental re-arrangement of reality.
He dismisses world, objective reality, as not sufficient for his expected coming future.
He needs to circumvent it, as a problem to be overcome, following the hue splintering from the prism of his mind, to its destination.

one Nihilist priest tears the word "love" from its worldly anchoring, converting it to a divine ambiguity, that one must believe, internalize, to make sense of.
He wants love, by making himself the earthly representative of the concept which he covets, and has transformed into a sacred word so as to strip it of its restricting, discriminating appreciation.
By declaring himself the earthly representative of the divinity "love", he makes himself a conduit of love, towards the divine, and so the earthly recipient of what is intended for the ambiguous, and the non-existent - a word stripped of its moorings and set adrift, for any mind to offer a safe harbour to.

This is how arrogance, and vanity, masks itself as humility, and selflessness.

But, if you think this is only possible using one word, that of "love", you are mistaken.
Human creativity unhindered by reality, or an innate sense of integrity, of nobility, will use any word to achieve the same thing - it reinvents the same method, by simply baptizing it using a new, more current, more fresh, label.
There is nothing restricting the degenerate, desperate, ignoble spirit - not world, not time, not shame, not integrity. His goal is pleasure, fame, fortune, sex, whatever he has associated with value.
There are no depths he will not stoop to to find what he covets.

When you do not humble yourself before world, not as victim but as son, and fights, FIGHTS!!!, knowing the outcome, but does the unseemly, of presenting himself as a demi-god, before gods, before he's proven his value, has tested his mettle, and pronounces himself philosopher, bringer of light, bringer of truth to convince his own, but not the gods, he is no more than another run-o-the-mill messiah - another prophet, another Jesus, worse another Saul - seller of an other's goods, regurgitator of an other's spirit - a vampire of the soul, draining blood from living, healthy, bodies to make himself, his sickness, immortal.

The tragedy of nihilism, is that it gives birth to monstrosities, like Christianity and Marxism.
Monstrosities which understand world and man in the abstract, as pure noumenon, and can then act in the mist anti-human, anti-real ways.

Consider the example of Christianity, and later Marxism, and how in their dogma of love and humanitarianism, justice and food for all, they enacted the most brutal campaigns against man ever imagined by a human imagination.
The love of a Christian is theoretical, divine, and not actual.
He can be crueller than a atheist, a pagan, while holding up the signs of self-sacrifice, and chant the scripture of agape.
He is so disconnected from reality that this contradiction between his thinking, expressed as recited words, and his actions, never trouble him.

Was it not the same for Marxists, who in the name of humanity tortured and massacred millions upon millions?
The Nihilist is so detached from reality, wanting to protect himself primarily, that he can then enact brutality, and force upon others pain and suffering, all to spread his theoretical world of justice and peace.
This is not only shameful it is insane.
To be attacked by someone who lies about his own motives, because he does not know them himself.

Beware of the man who uses words disconnected from reality - as pure noetic abstractions, or in ways that does not abide by the causal chain and the temporal arrow.
Beware, because in his delusion, seeped in need, he will do you harm, as he professes to be interested in your welfare.
But this is true of all things. When a paradox, a conundrum, is discovered, seek the root, otherwise face the consequences of your ignorance, and when your choice is between words and deeds, always place your trust on actions, and ignore words and word-games.

After a while you realize that no matter how many variants you come across, nihilism can be reduced down to a simple act: it has nothing new to say, and indulges in word games, and verbal acrobatics to facilitate the maintenance of its primary objective: to erase word, to evade and escape past/nature, to be free from the experience of existing.

All else are clownish antics.

They have nothing new to say about the world, but only how man can cope with the world, and most of often they prescribe changing it, annulling it, denying it, hiding from it, and words are how the brain covers itself with a fine layer of murkiness, and everything looks rosy through it.

Morality outside objective/ideal, objective/ideal outside motive, motive outside judgment/evaluation, judgment/evaluation outside consciousness, consciousness outside life...life outside world.: the causal chain of Nihilism leads back to the unreal, the unnatural, the beyond.

Nihilistic inversion follows the path of conversion of philosophy from exoteric, dealing with world, engaging reality outside the subjective, into esoteric, the exploration of self in relation to reality.
Philosophy is converted to politics, when the other is recognized as important to the welfare of self in relation to an indifferent uncertain world in Flux.
Objectivity denied, all converts to subjectivity, and how they relate, (inter)act come into harmony.
World is converted to humanity.
Power converted into control over others, physically or mentally.
Words converted from representations of noumena referring to phenomena outside the human brain, into representations of noumena referring to noumena inside the same brain, or in the brains of others - inter-subjective referencing or collective solipsism where the hive mind manifests in diverse expressions of the same detachment from world.
Truth becomes realpolitik, popularity.
Value becomes acknowledgment, appreciation by other, from others.
Politeness, social conventions, becomes parity - evidence that all men are created equal when they abide, out of necessity, and convenience, to the same rules of conduct.
All reduced to harmless word-play, banter, seducing, manipulating, passive aggressive platitudes, learned ritualized forms of engagement.
Language is dulled, and nobody is hurt, but worse that can happen is that his ego is bruised.

Culture of Nihilism uses the method of negative critique to imply its own positive offerings, without having to justify them.
A method of negating what is hurtful, or not pleasing, to maintain hedonistic immediacy.

An entire habit of thinking revolves around pleasure, sometimes changing the word sued to express it: happiness being another term substituting for immediate, easy pleasure: pleasure based on mind, or changing your perspective, your attitude, as if this has changed something more than how you cope and deal with what is outside your mind.
An entire moral and ideological framework is constructed to support this motive, lending an air of sophistication and seriousness to a base, animal need, adopting hypocrisy and denial as its expression.

For example, when denying race, the Modern Nihilist, motivated by its need to find immediate pleasure, will ridicule, simply declare something wrong, deny, ignore, and then offer no alternate explanation for why and how species splinter off from a common ancestor.
They announce their acceptance of evolution theory as the superior explanation for life, but then cannot explain how intelligence evolves, or how different species evolve, within the Evolution theory model.

They do the same thing with appearances. Denying relevance to sensual stimuli, while, at the same time, declaring themselves empiricists, and scientifically oriented, rational, realists.
Denying the importance of appearances they then proceed to apply their rule selectively, primarily when it comes to human appearances, while remaining true to empiricism when it comes to other species, and when if comes to inorganic patterns.
They announce that appearances are superficial, when it comes to humans, but then live their life judging everything else on sensual appearances, without justifying the selective application of their method...except by mystifying concepts such as "human" or male/female or anything to do with human beings.

When it comes to sameness they exaggerate the simplifications/generalizations they base them upon, while minimizing them when it comes to differences, refusing to think on the idea that sameness comes after a divergence has been established.

The short-term benefits, and how these thinking habits are established and maintained are easy to understand.
The psychosis, schizophrenia, this compartmentalized form of thinking is based on is harder to explain.
First step in understanding a dis-ease is analyzing its symptoms, or how the virus is affecting the body (meme affecting the gene).

The beginning is in criticism, wanting to find a negative in the concept, other, to be dismissed, so as to remain within the habitual form.
No alternative is offered, except implied, as a return to habit, or social norms, or easy pleasure - an addict uses the same method when wanting to justify his obsession, his dependence, his coping mechanism...his habit.

Critiquing those who believe in the process of [You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]within the human species, while offering no explanation as to why humans are excluded from Evolution Theory, or how speciation occurs if not gradually, is how these hypocrites deal with what is most threatening to their immediate dependence, their addictions, their habits.

How intelligence evolves if it is evenly distributed in a population, and it offers no advantage, is avoided with personal attacks and innuendo based on social norms and on peer pressure threats.
How value judgments are expressions of higher awareness is avoided, wanting to preserve the illusion of parity and only in the human species.
How a species, like the human one, could have evolved an awareness beyond that of other species, helping man dominate, if no gradual divergence within a population was never a fact, is never explained by these cowards, because the explanation might involve some uncomfortable insights that may disrupt immediate, easy, gratification.

Their interest in philosophy is as a coping method, similar to religion.
They are not interested in any wisdom that challenges their personal beliefs, and their self-interests.
The idea of accepting something as more probable when it insults and is against their interest is inconceivable to them, to the point where if someone speaks of thinks hurtful and contrary to their hopes, they assume a secret self-interest is behind it.
Intellectual integrity is another word for politics, for them.

If man can rise above his animal state it is with his ability to perceive himself in space and time beyond the immediate.
An animal needs to be chemically tricked to behave with indifference to its own survival - sexual frenzy and the method of imprinting where, for a time, the parent identifies with the offspring, later evolving into the type of imprinting that makes social cooperative unities possible, make the behaviour we associate with morality, possible.

But with man, the rational being, this type of self-deceit is considered base, and the type of natural automatism man cannot surrender to without embarrassment.
It is man's capacity to self-sacrifice fully cognizant of the mechanism and the costs, which raises him above animals, and bestows upon him the title of nobility.
We cannot say this for all humans but only for the human species as part of its potential.

With man, self-preservation becomes a secondary matter, because only he, when, and if, he attains the fullest of his potential, can think beyond the here and the now, and though he still feels that animal urge to preserve self, to survive, can overcome it, not with chemical support, and shallow redirected self-identification, but with his will alone - will directed by reason expanding his perceptual-event-horizon to encompass the entire history of mankind, discovering, there, patterns he wants to preserve, though they may cause him immediate suffering, or may even contradict his personal interests, his existence itself.
With the cruelty of pure love, the one who is not concerned for fame and fortune and with the mundane desire of preserving his name, himself, intact, will consider the benefit of humanity, and not of himself within it.

At its most extreme this can lead to a further detachment from concern with humanity, seeing the struggles of a single species as a tiny part of the entire picture, and himself as but the smallest particle participating in it.
To those trapped in the dilemmas of self-preservation, masked in a care for the human species, will consider the remarks of such creatures evil, terrifyingly cold and cruel.
Motives will be projected upon such minds, taken from inside of those who cannot detach from their own needs, and secret motives.
The incomprehensible is often reduced down to a comprehensible state - the lowest-common-denominator, to make it less intimidating, and alien.
Ignorance can be confused for courage, knowledge can be confused for understanding, and these spirits can be confused for those who have lost interest, or have never developed any, with the future: those I call the pure nihilists, that with no care for the future of humanity involve themselves with preserving the conditions that offer them certain gratification, hoping that after their death humanity will follow - resenting the thought that others will live in a way they could not.
Their concern for humanity ending at the uncertain moment of their passing.
These pure nihilists will offer exaggerated altruism as an indication of their generous heart, when all they want is to sustain the circumstances they have become accustomed to, and want to preserve - an expansion of their self-preservation, including those they depend upon to go on living.
Degrading their identity to the level where they can identify with all of them, all at once; losing themselves in the currents of humanity, in fashion, in political-contingency, to remain alive; sacrificing self to multiplicity, to escape pain and suffering - fluid in their imprinting.

Noetic ambiguity, words with no reference points outside the human mind, uncertainty, extreme skepticism approaching the point of indecisiveness requiring an external "expert" to take over, indefinitely postponed judgments, arguments from the negative, are their ideal conditions.

All variants of Nihilism, in the truest sense of the word, sallow anxiety, approaching the level of terror, at the idea of a uncertain, unknowable, fluctuating world, indifferent to them and their interests.

The majority submit to the comforting idea(l) that the world cares about them through this Being, they give many names to, "God" being the most popular one.
A growing minority, having had the idea(l) of God discredited, rushes towards the idea(l)s that offer him the possibility that underlying all this flux, is a secret, hidden, order, they can work towards discovering so as to gain an advantage over those who cannot see it, or deny its existence.
The concept of God, as universal Will, is replaced by the concept of universal order, and, again, given multiple names to represent it.
Fluctuating patterns they can un-cover to guide their willing, their activities, are not good enough. They need, literally physically need, an all-uniting singular thing, given a name, to stand in for an absent god, and if not that then they crave the absence of all patterns that insult, and inhibit the freedom to create themselves with no constraints, and enjoy the short life they are given.
If possible, the secret order they have substituted god with, ought to permit the freedom from a determining past/nature, so as to make life worth living.
