Without any cost, to the benefit of pleasure; with no price, no risk, to a potential positive outcome, the result is atrophy.
When pleasure is easy and certain, the human mind, evolved in more austere conditions, a product of need/suffering, cannot resit what is provided with ease, when it is made to strive for it, as something rare, and difficult to attain.
The organism's shift, adjusting to this new, artificially produced and maintained, externally provided, state of affairs.
It becomes arrogant, thinking its pleasures are because a result its own strength; it becomes entitled, believing the certainty of the outcome is guaranteed, and deserving; it becomes dull, as ennui increases and stress decreases, bored of the circumstances it had no hand in bringing about, but contributes to its maintenance by remaining submissive; it does not fully appreciate, as one does not appreciate the pain and suffering that went into an inheritance, splurging what he was given and did not earn, generous with what it had no part in making.

This artificial condition produced excess energies that must be released, or placated, numbed down to a level of tolerance.
Moderns are characterized by the careless activity of casual release, and overindulgence.

Words, as representations of nervous energy, are thrown about, expunging the mind of what it built on sheltered pleasures, and easy victories.

Perspectivism is stating the obvious. It is like saying we all see and hear using our eyes and ears.
It is now called subjectivity.
A perspective is of something, outside the perspective - WORLD.
The subjective is of an objective reality.

Currently it has come to imply, for cowards and imbeciles, that perspectives is all there is, as if it creates the world the organism then lives within.

Subjectivity is also stating the obvious, that the organism's interpretation, its perspective is something it will live by.
It does not mean that all subjective perspectives are equal.
It means that the perspective, what I call interpretation, will impact the organism and only it.....
Subjectivity is how the conscious mind relates with unconscious, indifferent, world/reality.

It's validation is not up for debate, not alterable by a vote, not a declaration, a might is right, but expressed by cost/benefit.
Cost/Benefit is the outcome of a judgment, based on a perspective, a subjectivity.
It is the organism that lives by the consequences of its own perspective, and not the world that adapts to accommodate it, morally, idealistically, rationally, theoretically, spiritually.
Sheltering can only do so much...before reality has its way.
No parent, no system, no ideology, no drug, no faith, no conviction, can protect the organism from the consequences of its own judgments.


Adapt, or Die.
Sheltering prolongs and postpones the costs.

Greed is not unique to the human species.
Greed is a product of a mind that can project possibilities into space/time, beyond the immediate, presence - deep perceptual-event-horizon.
Its function is to prepare for a need that has not yet manifested as sensation - it is preemptive.
Taking advantage of the advantage of foresight (imagination) and past/nature inherited as divergence in presence/appearance of superiority available energies/resources, it uses this advantage to store in excess of what is immediately required by it - later this evolved into bribery, also part of heterosexual reproduction, as a method a beta male gains sexual access to a female by offering her food/resources, or establishing alliances with other males based no a shared greed, or by buying their allegiance.  


Greed is based on insecurity, part of the essence of every organism dependent on nutrients to preserve and to expand.
Because it cannot be certain of the future it must take advantage of what is present.
Agon representing this antagonism between self-organizing (organism), and increasing chaos (Flux) - tension between fragmentation and creation.

For the cosmos there is no preference for order or for chaos, for the ugly or for the beautiful, for intelligence or stupidity.
It is only so, for an organism dependent on ordering, being itself a congruity of patterns, that wants to survive within fluctuating (inter)actions, where good/bad, ugly/beautiful become relevant, and profound.

Consciousness is also order, and intelligence its height...but is there a universal intelligence, a cosmic consciousness?
Of course not.
There are only levels of consciousness and degrees of intelligence, and these are only important to an entity that appreciates both.

The delusion that people, somehow decided, to appreciate something, is about as absurd and idiotic as anything else coming out of Modern minds - noise.

Psychosis of Modernity
The Bicameral mind confuses interpretation for the interpreted.
It convinces itself, because it feels good to do so, that it creates reality, and does not awaken to it; that world adapts to organism and not organism to world.

Symmetry & Proportionality
Tonal arrangements producing a pleasing melody are examples of patterns relating in harmony (attraction/repulsion dominated by attraction).
Melody is the experience of vibrations/oscillations (patterns) (inter)acting with minimal dissonance (friction), caused by a conflict in their patterns.
Music is the purest form of symmetry and how patterns (inter)act, because they are not limited and directed by a function, founded on need/suffering.
In organisms the factor of functionality has to be taken into account when judging symmetry. Survival necessities impose upon the organism a functional form where symmetry becomes a matter of proportionality.
For example, the waist/hip ratio men find attractive in the female form, is a product of reproductive functionality, female sexual specialization, and for men the chest/hip ratio is a product of hunting functionality. Wider hips and lung capacity indicate fitness in child birthing and implies an advantage in the demands of hunting and defending, requiring lung capacity.
Proportionality can also be used to impress. With self-handicapping, a peacock does not only display the symmetry of its tail, but also the tail’s proportions in relation to the rest of the organs. Disproportionality becomes a sign of impressive fitness, relative to the demands of balance and speed – it is actually unfitness developed to outperform challengers.
The organism grows a detrimental to its functionality organ/limb, to signal its virility, condemning it to a short life – selfish genes.
In most species proportional forms integrating, with optimum functionality as the guiding principle, results in balance, speed, flexibility, efficiency of movement (eloquence), or a superiority in the direction of its survival specialization.
Specialization enhances parts of the form to accentuate their functionality, at the cost of its other functions.
Unlike music, or other forms of inorganic patterns in congruence, living organisms have to sacrifice perfect symmetry to utility.
Symmetry is expressed as proportionality, displaying the individual organism’s functional potential.

The problem with stupidity, but the same goes for insanity, is that it mistakes interest in it as a personal effect, when it is simply it as the dis-eased, being the threat.
Inside protective systems the inevitable is postponed, giving the impression that it is due to the dis-eases strength, its virility.
In sheltering, institutionalized, western systems the inevitable simply unfolds at a snail's pace.
Costs are reduced and certain benefits accentuated, making payment in increments or lump sums a matter of social status.

A doctor watches, as the infected patient slowly deteriorates in the ICU, not wanting to take him off life-support, nor release him, infecting others, but, also, not wanting to let him die....preferring to study the slow progress of the virus, its symptomatologie, the weaknesses it exploits to insert itself into mind/body, and how it manifests physically and mentally.
It is because there are no more accessible, frontiers to escape into, that we must turn and face the dis-eased ones.
Our studies might be sued to flatter the infected, but that is but a small annoyance, when the motive is to keep ourselves free form the virus - we study to train our autoimmune system, learning the first signs of infection, and the stages of the virus' incubation and transmission.

Wear a mask, and wash your hands after every encounter.
Change outfits, persona suits, shoes, before going home.

When the virus hits the brain, medications will become necessary.
The temptation to preempt infection by injecting self with the same drugs, should be resisted.
Best defence is to keep mind/body healthy - eat clean, nutritionally rich food (physical and brain food).
Do not overindulge in sugars, or salts.
Drink plenty of water to flush the virus out.
Rest well, guarantying yourself if necessary.
Laugh, but not hysterically - even insanity is contagious.
Stupidity is only the inheritance of a weakness the virus exploits - genetic disposition.

If possible avoid large crowds, especially if men-children will be present.
Do not drink from the same glass, especially if it is cool-aid.  
Shrinking spaces will force you to the periphery... furthest from the center - the middle of the herd where heavy breathing, panting, sweating, mind-flatulence, brain-burping is thickest.

Of course, a strong autoimmune system will decrease the measures needed to be taken, but the most important medical method is prevention.
Do not tempt fate.
Take shallow breaths and turn your face away from a dis-eased one, if he approaches.
To not raise suspicion tell him it is you who is dis-eased - excusing your desire to keep him at a distance....make it altruistic, something you do for his benefit.

What we feel secure about we deflate.
Downplaying the obvious so as to not raise the ire and envy of others.
At the very least, not drawing constant attention to what others acknowledge and cannot ignore - exposing it in subtle ways.

What we fee insecure about we inflate.
Exaggerating the not so obvious, bringing it to the forefront for others to constantly validate.
Drawing constant attention to what others ignore - exposing their low evaluation of it in subtle ways.

Exploiting that latter cannot take a direct route.
After years of vulnerability the mind develops defensive measures to ward off what has pained it, hitting upon its soft-spot.
To exploit such a weakness you must feed into it, adding a breath of hot air to the inflated ego-balloon.
Each breath expelled toward this end, will have to take the form of the words used to inflate itself - the sonar vibration in-tune with the insecurity being covered with heated air.

It will burst, in time.

Words being externalized representations of noumena, are reflections of the organism's nervous system, the brain being its nexus.
As such use of words, their attitude in relation to phenomena, to world, the motive they repeat as a desired movement towards a goal, an idea(l) all expose the inner workings of the organism.

Words/symbols can be used as filler, bridging the distance between intent and goal.
They compensate for actions, constructing a noetic bridge between the mind's needs, desires, and the object, the idea(l) that promises to satisfy them.
They are useful when the idea(l), the goal, is unreal, has no presence in world, but is a pute projected noumenon (abstraction) no action can bring close: fantastic walkway, made of symbolic stones, towards a fantasy destination.  

Identity build in the mind, existing there as an ambiguous theoretical possibility. Never realized because the phenomenal world would challenge it and, perhaps, shatter it.
"I am what I say I am, and convincing others with my words is all I can do to prove it".

"Friends" of a drug addict cannot help the addict break free of his addiction.
There's a reason they are friends.

Friends of a crazy person are not the solution to his insanity....they would not be his friends if they were not, insane, as well.

A narcissist gathers the types of minds that feed into, and feed from, his narcissism.
It's a symbiotic relationship.
He tells them how "amazing" he is, what a "genius" he is, and they, as psychotics, themselves, feed their own insecurities by inflating his - reciprocal delusion.
His, theoretical greatness, means that they, by association, are also great.

"Birds of a feather..." ...psychological herding.

What Modernity does, by detaching minds from a world they no longer find a source of power, is that it makes them lost, desperate....willing to grasp upon anything that promises a "better" source of self-esteem.
With no past/nature, to anchor upon, to family, no father or mother figure to find sustenance from, they seek in random others, what they lack in themselves.
In time, some, find each other, establishing hierarchies of over-compensating despair.

Using each other, they need not pay attention to anything outside this relationship - they feed off each other, becoming a psychological self-contained unity - clique.

Wittgenstein reads Weininger wrote:
Freud wanted to replace the mythology in our “explanations” of human action. Similarly, Wittgenstein wanted to see through the mythology involved in philosophical attempts to understand language: do not be taken in by the surface grammar of language, but understand it through “use.”

At the same time, Wittgenstein realized that Freud introduced a new mythology, which charmed and captivated, despite its unflattering nature. As McGuinness puts it, Wittgenstein “accepted
and rejected Freud in equal measure, perhaps healthily.”
His attitude to Weininger seems much the same: an attitude of ambivalence.
He embraces and distances himself from Weininger in equal measure in the letter to Moore. Yet when it came to the list of influences, Wittgenstein included Weininger and left out Freud. What differences between Weininger and Freud account for this?
One response to this question starts from Freud’s strategy of arguing that things that look different are really the same. For instance, he denies that there is any real difference between normal and abnormal behavior, in that both are to be explained in terms of deep unconscious forces. Wittgenstein’s line of thinking is radically different.
The following remark on Hegel is equally applicable to Freud:

Wittgenstein wrote:
Hegel seems to me to be always wanting to say that things which look different are really the same. Whereas my interest is in showing that things which look the same are really different. I was thinking of using as a motto for my book a
quotation from King Lear: “I’ll teach you differences".


In my own philosophical positions difference precedes sameness, as a prerequisite of it...as consciousness precedes self-consciousness.
Appreciation of sameness is really finding a shared pattern, in congruities of patterns, reducing it to this common-denominator...forcing the mind lower and lower, until such a shared-denominator is found.
In nihilistic systems this can reach the lowest-common-denominator, to preserve the notion of unity, and parity.



Wittgenstein reads Weininger wrote:
This indicates a deep difference between Weininger and Freud. While Freud thought of himself as a scientist and a reductionist, Weininger resisted both scientism and reductionism in his writings, where he insisted on differences of many kinds: between and among men and women, different temperaments, and cultures. Weininger, like Wittgenstein, was trained as a scientist, but became an antiscientistic thinker, opposed to those who extend scientific methods into areas where they are inappropriate. Hence Freud gives dangerous pseudoexplanations, while Weininger and Wittgenstein accent description, and depiction of facts and practices. Again, Freud is an essentialist, trying to bring all human behavior under one explanatory rubric, while Wittgenstein is an anti-essentialist. Weininger certainly looks like an essentialist, with his quasi-Platonic definitions of opposite Types, and his purported explanation of all character in terms of the ManWoman dichotomy, but Wittgenstein may have found in Weininger’s ever-inventive discovering of new distinctions an anti-essentialist movement of thought that he wished to clarify.

Wittgenstein may also have identified with the spirit in which Weininger wrote. Wittgenstein’s struggle with hypocrisy, with self-deception in oneself and one’s work, his emphasis on clarity and clarification as a value in itself, and his respect for the particular case are all relevant here. In the late 1940s, Wittgenstein contrasted Weininger with Kafka in the following terms: Kafka, he said, “gave himself a great deal of trouble not writing about his trouble,” while Weininger, “whatever his faults, was a man who really did write about his.”
Weininger wrote about problems in his own life, while Freud wrote about problems in other people’s lives. Weininger worked on himself as he engaged in the activity of philosophizing and psychologizing, while Freud had the disengaged posture of the scientist. So Freud’s scientism, essentialism, and his captivating new mythology are not only mistakes but also personal flaws:
The less somebody knows & understands himself the less great he is, however great may be his talent. For this reason our scientists are not great. For this reason Freud, Spengler, Kraus, Einstein are not great.


Not to Know Thyself, is to remain oblivious to how you are perceived, how you relate to world, trapping you in the dominant role of casual observer, critic, of what you fail to include yourself in - superior not because of a honest relationship with world, and others within it, but based on the distance of theory, abstraction disconnected from reality.
Narcissism, over-estimating the value of self, in relation to otherness, is dependent no reflecting, upon others, what one most wishes to be perceived as - anger and hatred come quickly to the mind refused this demand - willed but not received. The individual seeks out sycophants, or simple gullible, weak minds to dominate and receive the desired reflection.  


Wittgenstein reads Weininger wrote:
Freud believed he had made a series of scientific discoveries, discoveries that provided for a scientific theory of the mind. Wittgenstein reads him as an inventor of an unscientific “way of thinking” that laid claim to the authority of a science; ultimately, psychoanalysis was not only a “powerful mythology” but also a form of self-deception. Freud says: Think like this.
Weininger and Wittgenstein say: Here is one way or line of thinking; now keep it in mind but think for yourself.


Self-deceit is a important par tof Judaic victimhood, resolving many paradoxes produced by their nihilistic relationship to reality, but also dealing with the power attained by playing the weakling - Jewish Paradox.
Quantity overwhelming Quality.

Christians deal with it with the idea of "sin", but is still unable to justify a "good" God, allowing "evil", without the ambiguity of human "free-will", a synthesis of self-contradiction.  


Wittgenstein reads Weininger wrote:
In sum, we have developed a parallel and a contrast between Wittgenstein’s readings of Freud and of Weininger. Wittgenstein spoke of Freud’s extraordinary scientific achievement and of himself as a disciple of Freud, terms of praise at least as strong as those he gave to Weininger. Yet he was an implacable critic of Freud’s claims to have
provided a scientific theory of the mind, or to have made scientific discoveries. This ambivalence is reminiscent of Wittgenstein’s treatment of Weininger too, both in content and vocabulary. However,
Weininger’s writing helped Wittgenstein to resist the kind of essentialism and scientism that Freud, in his role as scientist of the mind, takes for granted.

Wittgenstein reads Weininger wrote:
The Uses of Reading Section 375 of the Philosophical Investigations consists of a series of Socratic questions about reading:
How does one teach anyone to read to himself?
How does one know if he can do so?
How does he himself know that he is doing what is required of him?

In answering them, Wittgenstein urges us to resist the inclination to turn inward, and the related attractions of a picture of reading as an inner process or activity, psychological or neurological. Sections 156 to 171 contain an extended examination of the concept of reading, a topic Wittgenstein repeatedly discussed. Here, he directs our attention to the skill of producing the right sounds as one looks at the words on the page; understanding what is read need not be part of this activity. In this sense of the word, it is possible to imagine a person who serves as a “reading machine,” vocalizing correctly, but without any understanding of the text. One aim of this passage is to get the reader
to distinguish between reading, in this reproductive sense, and reading with understanding; another is to combat the idea that “reading is just a special inner experience which you may or may not accompany by utterance out loud of the words you read.

Incantation of a "magical prayer"
Difference between Knowledge & Understanding being determined not by the assimilation and recitation of words, evoking patterns, but by connecting them, producing meaning.
Meaning relating to world of appearances, not to human abstractions.

noumenon/abstraction <> word/symbol <> phenomenon/apparent/present

Word/symbol the connector, the conduit, reflecting the neural system, connecting mind & body.

Nihilistic detachment is the disconnection of word/symbol form the external reference point, leaving ti in limbo - the mind reconnects it back to itself, where it is easily manipulated by will - Will acquires a god-like power producing the delusion of inter-subjectivity, the dominance of the subjective over the unruly, unknown objective world/reality.


Wittgenstein reads Weininger wrote:
Perhaps these reflections on reading can shed light on Wittgenstein’s ways of reading others’ works as well as the difficulties he encountered in doing so. For once we distinguish reproductive reading from reading with understanding, and recognize that both of them
are practical abilities, rather than a self-authenticating inner process, this leaves open the possibility that being well-read is no guarantee
that one has understood what one has read. Reading and influence are complex notions. As we read Wittgenstein on reading we are reminded that “we also use the word ‘to read’ for a family of cases. And in different circumstances we apply different criteria for a person’s reading.”

To say of a person that we can read him or her like a book is to say that we understand that person very well – that he or she is transparent to us. But when the book is itself complicated and opaque, when it does not wear its meaning on its face, as it were, then we have a problem. Are we to understand “reading” in these circumstances as a process, or as an achievement, or both? As our various authors stress,
there are many ways in which one can read and be influenced by an author.
The first assessments of Weininger’s influence on Wittgenstein were relatively brief, rather general, and gave little attention to textual details and analysis. They also tended toward the purely biographical, without addressing the philosophical. Yet the relations between life
and philosophy, influence and originality, are themselves themes that link Weininger and Wittgenstein.

Indeed, it is striking that the passage on Wittgenstein’s influences, cited at the beginning of this introduction, is surrounded by remarks on influence and originality that have a strongly Weiningerian character.

Understanding is to render transparent, explaining why Moderns find fertile ground for preserving their delusions, their shared dis-ease, in confusion, in complexity, in clouding the issue with unnecessary words - mystifying.

Wittgenstein reads Weininger wrote:
I think there is some truth in my idea that I am really only reproductive in my thinking. I think I have neverinventeda line of thinking but that it was always
provided for me by someone else & I have done no more than passionately take it up for my work of clarification. That is how Boltzmann Hertz Schopenhauer Frege, Russell, Kraus, Loos Weininger Spengler, Sraffa have influenced me.

The list appears to be arranged according to the chronological order in which they influenced Wittgenstein. One sign of this is the odd punctuation of the list, which is due to the fact that Wittgenstein first wrote just four names – “Frege, Russell, Spengler, Sraffa” – and added the
other names, carefully arranged in order, above the line. The first three names are authors Wittgenstein read as a teenager; Frege and Russell first had an impact on him when he was in his early twenties. While Wittgenstein would certainly have known of Kraus and Weininger long
before1914, for both were famous and controversial in fin-de-si`ecle Vienna, their position on the list, and the fact that Kraus, Loos and Weininger all had an influence on theTractatus, which was composed during the First World War, suggests that their influence should be dated to the war years, or immediately before. All three were important influences on Paul Engelmann and his friends in Olm¨ utz with whom Wittgenstein stayed during an extended leave in the summer of1916. Spengler’s influence would have been after the publication of The Decline of the West,in1918, while Wittgenstein first met Sraffa after returning to Cambridge in 1929. In most cases, while the precise nature of the influence is certainly debatable, the overall character
is not.

Two children of Judaism with sexual dysfunctions making them unable to fulfill their memetic role, of reproducing the genetic type, critique and expose modernity - whistle blowers, to which we can add Heisman as a late entry.

A liar and a plagiarist, a truth thief, begins with a half-truth, to be convincing.
When others are onto him he covers what remains of his leis with selective portions of truth, hoping to bury it, but keep it as a foundation.

A lie as foundation offers shaky ground, no matter how many portions of the truth you place onto of it.
It shakes, with every fluctuation produced by (inter)activity.

A plagiarist is a lying artist.
Lacking creative genius, he copies that of another.
Unable to imitate the foundations, rooted in stress, in need/suffering, he copies the image of need/suffering, adopting the character of a Messiah, hoping to gain a similar following, and make a similar effect.
With no experience he studies the art produced by creative geniuses - trying to discover its smallest particle, what others in their obtuse numbness cannot perceive....the paint dot, on canvas, the chisels strike on marble.
Plagiarists begin with the smallest perceptible particle, to copy.

Covering their tracks, they simply change one color for another, replace one word with another, use wood instead of stone, go up an octave in a note...
The rest they keep, pretending it is of their own making.

If their imitation remains unacknowledged they declare themselves the equal of the great artist genius, attempting to receive what they cannot in any other way.
The copy is passed on as their own genius - they sell it to naive, simpletons, using desperate marketing technicians, like disciples, spreading the "word" of their worth.

If challenged, they use mass appeal, to silence dissenters, shaming those that fail to see the genius so many others can appreciate.
The motive is to sell, to receive fame and fortune, to live in the minds of the many, as a talented artist, when all he did was copy and paste.
Stealing from here, and taking from there - a hodge-podge of Frankenstein monstrosity, resurrecting the dead, defeating mortality...the dream of eternal life.
his scavenged parts untraceable by the average onlooker.

His confused monstrosity, having a short-life - it cannot survive the flux with no foundations.
It shifts as the earth quakes, its crumbles...
Confusion used to create the semblance of brilliance, is but a symbol, with no reference.

Greek proverb wrote:
Liar and a thief, rejoice only the first year.
>>Ο ψεύτης και ο κλέφτης τον πρώτο χρόνο χαίρονται<<

Practical Superiority of the Absent
A child that has not gone through the natural rites of passage, particularly a male, idolizes his same-sex parent, and if this parent proves to be contrary to cultural ideals, or has died, the child replaces them with an icon.
The icon is worshiped, in the absent parent's place - of the parent is alive the icon is chosen from among the dead, if he is dead he becomes the icon.

The icon is then harmonized with an idea(l) - converted to a theory, a pure noetic construct.

Dead icons are more useful because they cannot contradict the child's idealization with their actions/behavior.
They are malleable, as all noumena are.
The child can shape and reinterpret memory to fit into a desirable idea(l) outcome.

This is the practical utility of the absent absolute.
It is its very absence which makes it malleable, convertible, adjustable to any desirable outcome.
Nihilism thrives on the absent absolute - its very name is derived from the notion of a cosmos void of meaning, universal morality, god.
A child's trauma, experiencing a missing parent, growing up to be psychotic.

Within the contexts of patterns and how they produce attraction/repulsion, described [You must be registered and logged in to see this link.] and in numerous other threads, attraction/repulsion is not a willful choice.
The organism may awaken to them, and try to understand, so as to attain a level of control, or focus them more precisely, but attraction/repulsion is a product of the very essence of an organism, as is its field of effect.
It attracts/repels in accordance to the patterns participating in its congruence, producing an aggregate excess of repulsion/attraction, once these are canceled out as part of its organization's hierarchies.

An organism is a congruity of patterns, not in absolute, perfect, harmony.
The attraction/repulsion dynamics between the organism's differing patterns manifest as a combined spontaneous repulsive/attraction field of effect.
This is what is called the specific organism's personae (personality, psychology/psyche), its nature....Character is this repulsive/attractive field of effect under a particular level of control.
The control might be willful, or might be the result of education/training, that has stifled and repressed or has cultivated and promoted in accordance to a desired goal - an idea(l) (meme).
This is character.
Character is, therefore, genetics within memetic contexts.
...and so, gender is sexual specialization within cultural contexts, and race is human breeds within socioeconomic contexts.

To put it simpler, persona is nature/past manifesting as presence/appearance, as behavior, and character is nurture the inflation and deflation of innate, inherited personality/psyche.
The idea(l) used determined the measurement of the outcome, its worth/value.

But the final decree comes from objective reality, indifferent to all human ideals, and standards of measurement.
This final arbiter (blind justice) of Flux, determines cost/benefit which no human ideal can erase, but only reduce or accentuate, and only for a short time, and within a confined space.  

The interesting thing is, that the same outcome, due to the nature of flux, will have a different cost/benefit balance, during different periods of  time/space, but this difference will not be so great as to make all preparation, and prediction impossible and irrelevant.

From garbage one cannot expect anything but the smell of decay and sepsis.
To find a use for it (wring from it what value remains), you must grind it into mulch (effort), and then evenly spread it over the soil to fertilize your garden, where you've planted seeds that will one day bear sweet fruit.

Nature recycles, cadavers, and decomposes filth, returning all to the Flux, from where new patterns emerge.
All it takes is time, and a farmer's disposition.

Hyper-Masculinity is overcompensation for the castrated ones, the mentally circumcised.
Dreams of fertilizing a cosmic womb, when they copy, creating clones, imitate, fabricate, and having no real father-figure, they adopt cadavers, raise them from the dead, baptize them, make them members of the Kabbalah out of which the "true" messiah will come.

Feeble men-children inflating their testicles with injections of testosterone, learning the text so that it can be recited, as a second-nature, to cope with their first, their innate nature, as feeble follower of masculine energies.
Inner female expressing herself as macho man, hiding her vagina with a cod-piece.

When philosophy becomes about human husbandry, politics, psychology, marketing dominates.
Wisdom about world is reduced to techniques of exploiting and manipulating the masses, and the study of reality is reduced to the study about the study about reality, from the perspective of how this perspective affected people, or how popular it became.

Fame and Fortune is the Moderns materialistic/hedonistic replacement of the Abrahamic God and eternity lost.
Icons of "philosophy" are worshiped because of their influence or whatever posthumous fame and fortune he accumulated.
To covet what one lacks in self is the calling card of the modern infected by the Nihilistic [You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]


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

Along the Yellow Brick Road...
A zombie craves healthy flesh and blood, a coward craves courage, the brainless craves a brain, a weakling craves strength, a heartless man craves a heart, the castrated craves testicles....

A congruity of congruities, a unity/tribe of organisms - a clique, a clan, a fellowship on the same path to the same destination, each with his own agenda.
An alliance of need/suffering.
Friendship built no lack, expressed as desire, desperate hyperbolic covetousness.

Who sits behind the curtain as Wizard of Oz, but the icon himself.
Behind the impressive performance, a simple man, using the burial mask of a dead man.




Philosophy becomes a pretext for the study of techniques/technologies to achieve earthly happiness, to find personal fulfillment.

The left has always and will always fail – taking over when surpluses accumulate, to disseminate them evenly within a system, to preserve some parity.
If they remain in power for too long, then deficits will undoubtedly make the right necessary.
They are the political expression of Nihilism – detached, romantic, words void of connection to reality – naive idealists, ranging from Marxists to Anarchists, and from Social liberals to Maoists.
Their detachment from reality results in a failure to apply their dogmas in a world indifferent to human fantasies, desires, hopes.
Nihilism, and its branches of Abrahamism and secular Humanism/Marxism, are impotent, useless outside human minds, and by extension manmade environments – socioeconomic systems. Environments created, in accordance with human ideals, and maintained with constant human interventions upon natural processes.
Within this context does the magical effect of words apply, and it is only there that words can be arranged in any sequence imaginable, if they simply trigger the desired psychological reaction in the listener, soon to be follower.
Soviet Union fell, China has had to arrange a contradicting sub-system to survive, as Judeo-Christians/Muslims must contradict their own beliefs to survive within world, and the modern secular variant of the same dis-ease?
Well, he must lie, first to himself and then to those he seeks approval from, from those he depends upon, and maintain a reciprocal relation of need with.
Nihilism, in its most current variant, its last (Modern), is duplicitous.
Its words never coincide with its actions, because if it were to remain true to its own declared principles, it would perish in a world it denies, and claims to be its own creation.
Judaism had to create a postponed, validation, and is now dealing with the paradoxes its own power founded on chosen to suffer is presenting. Obsessive hedonism has to be justified by the eternal victims.
Christianity has been exposed from behind its Hellenic covering, Islam struggling to find its own masks.
Marxism could not secularize Abrahamism with its naive conception of human nature.
Humanism in the throes of identity crisis is cutting at its own legs, hoping technologies will soon be available for an efficient prosthetic to substitute for it.

In an insane asylum the loudest, most outspoken crazy receives all the attention, from the staff, and form the other inmates.
He feels special, receiving so much for so little, the staff monitors the events, preventing ti from getting out of hand, but happy when all the inmates are preoccupied, distracting them form mischief.

Crazies in a circle is a win-win circumstance, if only temporary. A break in between feedings, medication, and lights out.
Inmates being what they are, has much disposable time and energy requiring controlled harmless release.  
They cannot all be constantly medicated, nor distracted with childish entertainment, nor can they sleep away the entire day.
It's a problem that finds its own solution, once you establish a routine and the rules of acceptable behavior.

Whether some think they are Napoleon, or reincarnations of Jesus, or bees buzzing, is of little matter.
What matters is how to discharge all that organic energy harmlessly, and perhaps functionally.
A method of making the repair of institutional facilities, turning it into a game, is one way among many.
How to make the inmates agencies of maintaining their own incarceration, is a win/win, and all it takes is one loud, attention seeking, crazy.

Sheltering, particularly by a dominant father-figure, causes psychological stunting.
The first born is like the parent of the opposite sex, and so if a boy it identifies with the mother, which if weak, because she was also dominated, becomes the source of the boy's resentment, and his passion to be more than his overbearing father - a father his mother deserved.
He will redirect this desire towards male friends, becoming, for them, the father he wished his was, or actually was, replacing him (killing him, in the Freudian sense), overcoming him, by becoming him.
His mother's adoration, telling him how he was the smartest, the best, the fastest, the handsomest boy in the world, transforms into an obsession to prove her right.
Her weakness, her tenderness he identifies with, internally, while externally he wears his father's authority.
He becomes his father, and his "friends" representations of himself, during those early days.
He finds such lost boys, among those with father issues of their own - with man issues.
They are looking for their own father, and he wants to become, for them, his own father, to overcome him.

Negro culture is a source of hyper-masculinity.
Fatherless boys, emasculated minds, compensate in a show of aggression, arrogance, egotism.
Sheltered "white boyz" find in African anger, an expression of their resentment for their own, missing or overwhelming Fathers...because a bad present father can be worse than an absent one.    
Imitation of inmate gestures, vocal tones, a forced regurgitation of word-associating self-aggrandizement, exposes white guilt, implanted there by a nihilistic meme wanting to destroy the only force standing in its way.

Females have an innate, advantage, over males, when it comes to psychoanalyzing others.
Their role, evolved into a ability to read, through behavior, actions, the other's intent, no matter what was stated.

Where they fall short, is in conceptualizing this intuitive advantage, experiencing it as a feeling they cannot bring into consciousness, feeling it without pinpointing how or why.
In nature, they did not have to go beyond the sensation, aiding them in their social ambitions.
Their specialized reproductive role ensured their place within the group, and that of their offspring, during the long periods of gestation and weening.
A successful male has to do more than that.
He had to get into the mind of an alien organism, to help him succeed in hunting, improving his social status.
He had to not only feel the other's intent, but know why and how, because he was dealing with a different psychology than his own human one. He had to focus on externalized signs, behavioural nuances, subtle patterns, to outperform his fellow hunters.  
It was not enough to turn inward for guidance, using self as the standard, when dealing with a different organism, he had to externalize this self-knowledge and adjust it to the hypothetical psychology of an entirely different species, with which he had minimal intimate contact.
But this was also her advantage.
The fact that she could base her choices on intuition, not having to explain it, made her efficient.
The fact that she was dealing with her own kind, with which she had intimate, continuous contact with, and to which she was related genetically, was an advantage.
Her status was socially derived, and guaranteed.
A male's was that and more.
His was not guaranteed, when one male could fertilize multiple females.
Not until later, with the development of more complex societies, with the coming of massive tribes, did males become less expendable, and had to be integrated into the social group by partially taking away female sexual powers.
A change that males first became aware of, and it was they who applied it, producing the present animosity towards Paternalism.

The talents-less mimics talent.
The plagiarizer copies.
The weakling imitates strength.
The coward imitates courage.
A non-thinker regurgitates thinking.
A non-philosopher studies philosophers, repeating their words precisely.
An actor learns his lines and follows direction - trying to repeat both perfectly, convincingly, trying to embody the essence of another.

From one authority to the next, to the next master, to the next artist, thinker, play, each time trying to be the best plagiarist, the perfect copier.
Hoping that repeating the act will develop into the spirit that produced what he covets.
hoping imitation will become fact.

He is a Modern manimal.
Underlying his ambition is the common belief that genetics is not inherited potential, a limit to possibilities, but parity.
All are born with the same potentials, and learn/cultivate what is different.  
Here is why he fails to continue the performance, and why, in time, his pretentious lie is exposed.

A well trained orangutan, repeating the gestures, actions of his male trainers, will not evolve into a human.
It may convince other orangutans, but humans will smile and laugh at it.

Psychological pattern...
A leader needs to lead, a follower needs to follow.
The two will find each other, will become congruent, meeting each others needs, as a product of their essence: aggregate of the congruent attraction/repulsion.

It is not the follower's choice, but his nature, as it has been determined in the past, that makes him act/behave in the only way he could.
A weak spirit will gravitate towards strong spirits, and then justify it after-the-fact.
He will fall in-line, imitate, as interaction produces a balance of attraction/repulsion - tension.
Leaders' goals, ambitions ,are now his.
He attempts to imitate the one he follows, pull himself forward to sit beside the leader, but he is what he is, a follower, and his imitation remains just that, an imitation.
He repeats the leader's words, copies his gestures, repeats his signs.

One leader gives way to another, but the follower remains true to his essence, because to alter a patterns particularly a congruity of pattern's requires a traumatic event, a force equal or superior than the pattern established, a life risking, and so life altering event, and in these times of sheltering these are no longer common.

We reach a cognitive impasse when we realize that we haven't been going forward, at all, that we've been going in circles, or worse, slipping backwards, losing our footing, on the incline.
We become distressed when we realize we must turn back, to go forward - reorienting ourselves.

But how many have the courage to see the mistake, and make adjustments?
Most continue on, untroubled.
They've seen what lies behind, recalling why they first turned away, why they did not use their hands when they began to lose footing, why they did not stop when they realized they were going round and round.

Inherited traits, cultivated, sharped, by experienced stress (pain/suffering) is what brings forth talent, style, charisma.
An individual who survived difficult circumstances, and came out stronger.

This cannot be copied.
Its appearance/presence, might be imitated, but missing the inherited and experienced past, it is no more than an empty shirt, with no body.

Spirit = inherited and experienced past - nurture + nature = personality, psychology.

So, experiences minus inherited potential, and/or inherited potential minus experiences = performance - character/caricature.
The first comes across as fake, forced, the second as dull, empty.
Character acting can be learned, but not personality, not spirit, not style.

Sheltering, pampering, the protective shield of humanity and its mitigating institutions, make reality, nature something exotic, something strange and unique, something to be caged and studies from afar, something "unreal" compared to our experienced manmade "alternate reality".

Nietzsche is now one of the displays, for girls and little boys, to visit and observe, wide-eyed, as if they were looking at an alien species evolve in an alien world.

For us pagans Nietzsche is no more than a kindred spirit, who with eloquence and courage, stated the obvious, to stunted minds and sickly spirits; spoke honestly, if not clearly, in a world of lies and pretentious duplicity.
The degree of worship he has received by the very products of Nihilistic detachment and Modern sheltering, is fascinating.
He is now their adopted icon, for minds not used to that level of realism.
Is this not why he had to hide it in aphoristic metaphors?
So infectious, to the infantile, that you cannot discuss world with those morons, without referring and deferring to the only connection with it they have ever experienced.
It has gotten to the point where discussing reality has to go through his words, his imagery, now a singular conduit to nature/past, these stunted minds will ever experience.  
It has gotten to the level where the obvious is now profound insight for naive men-children, and the self-evident is now deep insight for mental cripples.

Granted, the literature professor said it with such artistic eloquence that brain-dead Moderns could not help but be aroused, in an age of linguistic retardation, presented with so many Spartan Delphic metaphors that they could use his words to masturbate forever.
