Empty Shirt
Best way to ensure someone's participation is to give them some bullshyte title with no power.

Morons use this method to make retards follow them.

Passive Aggression
In the panoply of the female's weakness is her natural, innate, ability to manipulate power, from the standpoint of weakness.
It's how she compensates for her biological weakness, converting it into social power.

Nature's Mind/Body Paradox
Attraction can only satisfy itself with a fit body for so long, before an unfit mind becomes too difficult to ignore.
A dull mind is hard to tolerate.
But, then, a unfit body is hard to ignore no matter how fascinating the mind, within it, might be.

For a man this is a minor factor when compared to what a big deal it is for a woman.

Bicameral Specter
Because self-consciousness slowly emerges out of consciousness, the already evolved, automatic processes seem as if they have a mind of their own.
The individual becomes a separator of himself.

First, easiest, and most comforting conclusion is to assume an external will, which is no other than itself.

Inevitable Fate
What a terrible fate....to be remade and recycled, after your death, into sugar coated vitriol, on the lips of spoiled brats, and comfortably numb imbeciles.
Like Simone Bolivar, Friedrich Nietzsche and Socrates.

Hedonism Objectified
It is when hedonism hides in reasoning that it becomes most inconspicuous, most insidious.
An erotic expectation, deserving of fertilization, after copulation has become (inter)action.
The blind acceptance of what is, that reminds us of erotic madness, settling for the available superior as the ideal, surpassing time/space, transcending the immediate.

Philosophy translated in Modern terms, as love of world, love of otherness, and not agape, friendly openness to possibility - indifferent to sharing, or ownership.
Does a true friend covet friendship?
Does he envy friendship shared?

Love does, by imposing ownership, by restricting and claiming rights over other, over world.
A lover claims a monopoly

Necessary Compromises
The reason why Nihilists must lie, and have no other option, is simple.
Their detachment from reality, true or faked, will result in an inevitable cost, that exceeds the idealized, hypothetical, theoretical benefits.
If a Nihilist remains true to his own, proclaimed, ideals, and principles, if he lives in accordance wit his own beliefs, he shall perish, if he is not protected from the external world by an intervening will.
This explains why Nihilism flourishes in times of abundance, and sheltering, and dwindles down to a private fantasy, in every other circumstance.

To deal with this necessity Nihilists use ambiguity, to mask their beliefs and make them applicable in both times of superfluity and times of austerity.
They are, at one time spiritual mystics devoted to their enlightenment, and at others cold, rational, brutes, dealing with a world that simply does not and cannot care; it rises to noetic idealism, and dives into pragmatic realism, sometimes finding shelter in one, and then in the other pole.
A Nihilist that survives is either privileged by a protective institution, allowing it to claim anything, using any language, that does not threaten the institution providing the sheltering, or must lie, trying to justify why its actions contradict its words, which it constantly, and predictably annuls.  
With no external world to limit its usage of words, it only has its own will to depend upon, to fabricate and acts out, in accordance with an ideal that lacks all external references.
Linguistic insinuation does not only allow the listener to fill in the void of connectivity with his/her own private desires, but also permits the speaker to deny being corned by its own reasoning.

Nihilists must lie or they ill perish.
This certainty is dependent no the degree of their detachment form reality.
The more detached their thinking is from anything outside their skulls, the more vulnerable the are to a world they deny, or fabricate at will.
To survive within world they either lie to themselves, or they lie to others, keeping what they truly think to themselves.
In either case deceit is involved, motivated by an uncertain goal.
In either case they will be exposed through their own actions.

All it takes is time.
Time measuring (inter)actions.  

Within controlled, sheltering, environments this time may be postponed, and exposure might be subtle.

Mind/Body Risks of Entrapment
Mind approached from body risks becoming engrossed within hedonism, materialism; body approached from mind risks becoming captivated by detached idealism, nihilism.
Mind emerges as servant of the body – consciousness.
There is no division in primitive minds.
Right-hemisphere dominates and is outwardly focused.
When self-awareness begins to develop then body is rediscovered as something alien.
Mind from body, becomes body from mind, forcing a new synthesis – left-hemisphere must be quieted, allowing a return to right-hemisphere cohesion.
Left-hemisphere categorizes, measures, judges; right-hemisphere feels, senses, intuits.
MANifesto: Psychology – Personality – Right/Left Brained
Body, the physical, is in continuous intercourse with world.
Mind can shut itself off, turn inward, protected behind the exoskeleton (skull), sleep, becoming oblivious to world, and feels no pain, if it is not exposed, open to the outside.
Body exists as constant (inter)activity.
Body relates to world through this (inter)action, this constant intercourse.
Mind awakens to this, discovering body as it relates to other. It returns to world through body.
Body is idealized – sanctified and/or demonized.

Psychology of having something to prove is an issue among males who have been raised in affluence, beneath a dominant father figure.
Proving their self-worth against world is of no significance, because he is well provided for, sheltered, and guaranteed survival, within reasonable doubt.
What remains, for such a boy, when ancient coming of age rituals no longer apply, but to prove he has surpassed his father, has overcome the shadow looming over him, and that he could have "made it" even without his overwhelming presence.
It is a problem faced by affluent males living in western systems.

Adapting to the prevailing environment which has substituted "world" for "humanity" such a boy measures his advancement by how many he can seduce, and exploit, how many "inferiors" he can manipulate.
Others become environmental conditions for him to overcome and overpower.
Instead of weapons, tools, his wits, he has words, guile, his pretenses to aid him.
He raises his value when he can become popular, the center of attention - king of the world means master of as many minds as possible.
He feels a god when he can exploit the weaknesses in others.

His insecurity before reality is compensated with a thick wall of flesh and blood - he makes his way to the center of the herd, as far away from the world beyond as possible.
His weakness in relation to nature, is covered with power over nature's agencies.

Suicidal Mind
Suicide is an option only to a mind that has separated body from mind, and rediscovers self as an external other, relating/comparing to otherness.

For lesser minds there is no issue with self-value, self-confidence, there is only self relative to other.
An animal has no body image issues.
It does not consider its own worth compared to another.
Mind is, a tool of body, serving the body's needs, and feeding-off the excesses.
The only measure of value is of other in relation to goal, not as other evaluated by some other, abstract, concept, like God, or an implied idea(l).
Giving a pattern a mathematical value, is also a measurement in reference to an external, to self, standard. It, also, implies a telos, a goal, an end, as mathematics is based on 1/0, two symbols of an absolute end.

Suicide is only possible for a mind that holds itself accountable to an idea(l), other than its mind/body unity.
This can be a motivator for nobility, or of decrepitude, it can produce genius or insanity - the upper and lower ends of the cognitive spectrum.
When mind is detached form the body's demands, it begins to disconnect from reality, flowing upward, or downward.
With no world to limit it, it can find itself so high that any contact with reality might break it - Daedalus and Icarus.         
[You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]
Hellenic asceticism teaches a balance between mind & body.
Youthful exuberance, inherited from a clever, more mature mind, must never forget the gravity of earth.

History repeats.
Should it surprise us to find the one who served to bring down what was decaying being used as mortar for its rebuilding?
Should it surprise us to find the one who served to destroy to be forced into service, after he can no longer protest, recruited to fight on the side of the defeated?
Should we be surprised to find the one who uncovered to be used to recover, and bury more deeply what was revealed?

Young hackers are recruited to help close-up the defences of the systems they hacked into.
Viral strains that survive autoimmune systems return reinvigorated, with better methods of coping with the hosts' defences.
Dis-ease never goes away, forcing the body to adapt, to adjust, to become stronger.

Now, we must await the emergence of an old Nihilism reinvigorated by Nieatzschean effects.
Christianity 2.0
A new assault on Hellenism, and through it, an attack on Pagan, Indo-European traditions.
Early attempts are still child-like, transparent, but these will increase in sophistication, wanting to rebuild a new Nihilistic religion, under a new name.
Do not be comforted by these early, infantile attempts....Christianity is not completely dead yet, exposing these upstarts by forcing them to acknowledge and adopt the same tactics, even though they use different names, different words.

Messianic Complex
Deeply rooted in Abrahamic Nihilism, exposing identification with the mother, the feminine essence, which idolizes and submits to the masculine.
For the Jews the bloodline was passed via the mother, in stark opposition to the Hellenic, Pagan,tradition which described geneσis {γέννα} as what the male does, using the female as a means.
The female births the male's progeny {τοκετό}.
Association with the mother makes of the father an idol, an idea(l) that motivates the offspring, or inspire them.
In Abrahamism the male is also a means for another Masculine Father. The earthly "father" represents this noetic entity, acting in its behalf.
He is emasculated, as a consequence of this belief. The female (mother) then acts as a means for God's ends.
This difference shapes the psychology of both male and female children.
As a mind identifying with the feminine and idolizing the masculine the need to become social, to cultivate social stability, peace, is part of the feminine reproductive ideal circumstances.
A boy, idolizing the masculine can never go through the primal rituals of coming of age, as a surpassing of his father.

The Abraham boy's father cannot be unsurpassed, and any attempt would be foolish and blasphemy.
The boy is forced into the ambition of being the best representative of the masculine, without ever leaving its shadow.
By identifying with the mother, the feminine, he approaches females as one would approach a sacred tool: with reverence and a need to use it properly, in accordance with laws.
Being emasculated psychologically, symbolized by the ritual of circumcision, he relates as a female would to another female - both penetrated by the Holy Penis, and one acting as a representation of it on earth.
Such a psychology makes male offspring prone to idolizing other males, and desiring to save mankind from the world, and form itself.
A saviors has already taken for granted the "innocence" and victimization of those he wishes to protect and liberate from world, as well as the worthiness of all to be rescued.
The feminine reproductive ideal defines the "perfect world" - Utopia, Paradise.
A world dominated by female energies - reprimanding, correcting, undesirable male behavior.

Highest position of masculinity would be that of God's representative, his earthly reflection - his worldly penis, gather emasculated males and females within an overshadowing Divine Father.

A disposition measuring effect numerically, or using the numbers of human converts - an inter-subjective standard.Unlike the masculine spirit that evaluates self against world, including humanity, the feminine sexual impulse makes humanity the only world she is interested in, explaining, also, why females make such poor scientists, innovators and philosophers, as do effete males.
Their explorations will always begin from within humanity and return back to it, evaluating their own impact and the veracity of their conceptions numerically.
Their own power, and effect, always determined by how many they can seduce, manipulate and exploit, with harmony/peace expressing their hold over the minds of those that they've assimilated within God's Domain.
Unsupressable tendency to idolize, converting real people into perfect icons, they emulate these icons as the best reflections of the dominant masculine ideal (God). They, the "humble" servants of this absolute power - arrogance via a proxy.

Whereas, for the Hellenes, the male brought out the feminine in a woman, for the Abrahamics it is the female that brings out the masculine (god's spirit) from the man - masculinity measured through feminine judgments.
What male can live-up to the absolute masculine?
None.
All fail, and must continuously feel ashamed.

A Messiah, therefore, has a motherly psychology.
She forgives, accepts indiscriminately, loves with no restrictions, teaches her children the mind of their divine father, which she serves loyally.
She protects, nourishes and comforts, bolstering her children with tales of their worthiness, their value, their lovability.
Such a male would speak with the convictions of a God, whose words he repeats, and then be completely submissive and tolerant - demeanor of a single mother raising children who have only heard and learned of their father through stories, and pictures.

Effect
For a female child the effect of the previous will be that of failing to find her idea(l) male - forever dissatisfied, giving herself to "inferior males" who can never live-up to the Absolute.
Spiritually dominated her physical needs will be suppressed and denied - she will settle for intellectuals who can best repeat scripture, mostly delivered through the intervention of an icon/idol.
For a boy, unable to go through the rites of coming of age, he will remain child-like, forever under the domination of a living father, who represents the ideal but fails to live-up to it himself.
Always identifying with the mother, through her he receives his identity as anointed, he must flee the father's presence, as a constant reminder of his own imperfections, or await his death for him to become the highest representative of the Divine.
Until that time he behaves and thinks as a child, or an immature male - a female.
The feminine, in him, dominates, and is concealed beneath a parental character, which is motherly.

A need to be loved by all, to be appreciated, to be included.
His need will be to make of himself popular, valuable, recognized.
The icon/idol will serve as a inspiration for his own performances.
Unable to surpass his own father e will find community among those, who, like him, have yet to mature, to become fully male.
After death the icon/ideal loses his/her worldly essence and becomes another representation of the Divine.
Among secular communities personality worship substitutes for submission to the priests who speak in the name of the Sacred.
If not death, then distance, fabricated image, substitutes for beyondness to cleanse the icon of its "imperfections", its reality.

Psychosomatic
Circumventing the external world that may be a barrier, the process of reconnecting noumenon back to mind, reattaching it to emotion, sensation, or a fabricated abstraction constructed for this purpose, can produce easily reproduced effects.
It's a matter of conviction or the depth of feeling this self-referential process, dependents upon and accentuates, that is then transmitted, through the nervous system as positive feedback to neurological stress.
Cellular processes, in a congruity of organic sensation, sensing data to brain, that transmit their reaction to world, may be processed, and returned with data that sooth them, for a duration of time, or decrease their transmission, relieving the mind from their stress.
This can become addictive but it does not deal with the source of this stress, which is nothing other than body continuously resisting flux, producing absence, or what is then interpreted, by the brain, as need/suffering.

Like all discovered lies, and the liars that perpetuated them, the liar must distance himself from the lie, so that he may adjust himself to how he was discovered and return with a new and improved lie, that will take into account the "tells" that exposed it.

We now know why Judaism must be distanced from its previous synthesis with Hellenism, Christianity.
It must deny a relationship, so that it can return, adjusting to the methods used to expose its ruse, and assimilating the ones that exposed them as their new concealment, so that they may return, renewed, updated, and now more confident that this time their lies will be convincing and hard to expose.  
Albeit Nietzsche was not the only one who exposed Christianity for what it was, and is, he was the most passionate and consistent whistle-blower, forcing many to now attempt to integrate him, along with Hellenism, into a new and improved synthesis - an updated 2.0 Christianity that will not b e called that, as Marxism is no longer referred to as Communism in the U.S. after the Cold War, and is now called Humanism, or liberalism.
We see the same practice with straight-out Communism, as it is now morphine in China.
It no longer calls itself by its past name, nor does it dress in those funky Chinese collars, but has adopted suit and tie and the outer appearance of Capitalism, pretending to be something other than what it is.

A liar is shameless, because the alternative is far more hurtful and shameful than the lie and being exposed as a liar.
Just as a homosexual is shameless, because what pride is left to him when he's already admitted to enjoying being penetrated and used like a female?
The alternative, being ignored, rejected, is a far more painful a prospect, and acknowledging the nature of his sexual dysfunction far more hurtful than any loss of pride.
Same goes for the beta-male, the feminism advocating male.
His only option is to become a carpet for women to step on - a friend, a loyal defender of her rights, a passionate protector of the lie of her parity, under the protective space of the institution, reassuring him, supporting him.
The alternative is far more hurtful, too difficult to even consider. That he is a failed genetic type, that would have been destined for a lifetime as a surrogate female, excluded from the gene-pool, forced to find alternate methods of gaining feminine favours, is too difficult when compared to simply believing he is enlightened, a new and improved male, with a progressive modern attitude, women find attractive and desire, and do not simply use and abuse, or that they settle for him because of the rules that prohibit or inhibit promiscuity, for both males and females.
The lie protects the mind from the painful reality of its own existence, when juxtaposed and considered objectively.

A liar is not dissuaded.
He regroups, formulates a new angle, a new strategy, inserting himself into a new, more gullible, group.
He adjusts his lie and the method he uses to sell it.
He has no shame.
The alternative would kill him, so what's there to lose, when survival is first and foremost.
Brains evolved to help the organism survive, and if lying to self, becoming schizoid, if turning shameless and cynical, is what it takes, then that is what it will do.

A living example of how past trauma can manifest in present uncontrolled anxiety.




A canine's shallower perceptual-event-horizon, and its primitive "living in the moment" makes its recovery an easier wound to heal, or cover over.
With a lower ability to perceive and assimilate patterns into larger models, the connection of pattern to expected behavior has a shorter time/space duration.

The abuse this animal must have experienced to make it behave in this way must have been severe and continuous.
A heart-wrenching video to watch, particularly for those where empathy is a process that cannot shut-off and ignore.

Cost/Benefit
Cost/Benefit not of their own sake, not to choose one rather than the other, but as a discrimination between attraction/repulsion, or, as it pertains to the individual, what is good/bade measured against the individual ideals, his standards.
These standards may be realistic or Nihilistic, about pleasure/pain, or about pious/sinful, or about noble/ignoble.

Cost/Benefit analysis, evaluation, occurs consciously, or intuitively.
Cost/Benefit is about the path-of-leas-resistance, in relation to the path-of-more/most-resistance.
Cost/Benefit underlies sexual attraction, the hunt, choices in garment, nutrition, behavior.
Most of it is automatic, the mind becoming aware of it after it has judged and chosen.

Cost/Benefit is evaluating causality, after-the-fact.
It is the attempt to determine gradations of adherence to a direction towards an idea(l), a goal.

Biggest issue nihilists have is with memory.
Memory, as the Greeks defined it [alehteia], and forgetfulness as Lethe.
Memory is what they try to bury, deny, reinvent.
Memory as sum of all nurturing, nature.
Memory as past, that must be denied, escaped, overcome, rejected, reinvented, rewritten, re-narrated until the repetitive narration changes it for the better.

Nihilists are continuously hiding beneath pretenses, wardrobes, words, symbols, and they forget, in their forgetfulness, that no matter how many cosmetic surgeries they have, and new covering they buy, they they can never erase the fundamental memory that troubles them - genetic memory.
Because they are memory incarnate.

If only, along with their appearance, which they've reduced down to the superficial, the subjective, if only they could leave behind and cast away the past they are a manifestation of.
A nullification of self, without destroying it.

If only memetic codes can bury genetic ones so deeply that all finally forget, and all can continuously reinvent themselves.
If only their errors could unburden them by changing their name, the words they use, their performance.
If only masks were enough to alter faces, and face lifts also lifted time.
If only with performance their embodiment of a different character can become permanent, and all can become what they pretend to be - nothing showing through the seems in their uniforms.
If only they can rewrite their reputation, and leave all that produced it behind, as if it were all the other's fault.

Memory is what troubles the modern mind, and what confronts its ideal of absolute freedom.

For what is memory but what is remembered in physical presence?
Body is memory, which the mind attempts to ignore.
How could it when mind emerges out of that which it dismisses as something else?
As soon as they lose themselves in the act, there it is reflected back to them, reminding them of all that has come before, known and unknown, all that cannot be escaped but only covered up and dismissed as superficial.

The approach of mind through body or body through mind, is what is in question.
In the mind all theory, all abstractions have meaning, are perfect, are honest, and pure.
You can arrange concepts, using words, in any way.
Place them in any sequence.
Validate them by connecting them to other words, at any time, define words in any way pleasing, or convenient to create whatever mental model imaginable.
The approach of mind, via body, through the merger of mind/body as brain/nervous system manifesting as consciousness, would limit and direct mind.
The body restricts mind, from its creative fantasies, differentiating it from imagination.  

All theories are valid, are meaningful, boundless.
Communism, in theory, was perfect.
Christianity, is theory, is amazing.
The psychosomatic applications are positive.
Body is affected by conviction, by belief, so why not believe in what is pleasing and positive, to reap the benefits?
What's there to be afraid of if it's all in the head, and can be let go and replaced at any time?

In theory all is good and beautiful and has its own genius.
All is lovable, and valuable.
All is good.  
When it's only in the head, who is it hurting?
What, possible, harm can it do, in theory?
Theoretical harm?

Can we not afford to be cynical?

If we rediscover body, by alienating mind from it, then our return can be a homecoming - enlightenment.
We can abstract it in whatever theoretical way we like.  
And, if we can do this with what is most intimate then imagine the endless possibilities the world of phenomena provides, to creatively rethink it into infinitely new realities, each as perfect and beautiful as any other.

In theory there is no severity, and so, no seriousness.
All is a joke, a game.
we can afford to experiment, and fantasize, and dream.  
In theory there is no fear, because we can simply change our minds, admit we were wrong, and create, or be seduced by, a new theory.
Costs, consequences, can be left behind, laughed about, forgotten, as if they never happened.
In theory, the tangible, can be made intangible, and then integrated into new models, buried in new hypothesis, reworked, and reintroduced as new theories.  

There is no regret, in theory, because there's no accountability - not in any grave sense.
There are only happy mistakes, that lead to pleasant growth.
All can be denied, reinterpreted, and left back, because nothing appears, when it remains in the mind.

When they did try to apply Christianity, we saw what happened.
They had to invent clever ways to excuse and expunge - to forgive and forget.
When they applied Communism, its failures had to be used as evidence of  mistaken applications; names changed and reworked - given new symbols, that do not remind us of this wrong application, and then returned, as a new, and improved, ideology.  

The reasons for the failure had to be blamed on a theoretical misunderstanding, and misinterpretation, of a perfect theory - unsoiled text.

They, got it wrong, and we, guided by this mistake, shall correct and reapply.
It's not the theory that is wrong, imperfect, it is those who apply it - it is world that is mistaken and the theory that remains perfect.
The mistaken ones are rare, the theory is undisturbed by how these rare sinners, these imperfect ones, mistook and misapplied it - how they lead us all astray.
We, having reworked the text, studied it with the added benefit of the mistakes made, will adjust and reapply the same theory....but differently.

What is the definition of insanity?

No, let's not change the theory, but only change what we call it; change the individuals interpreting and applying it - better still, let's change how we define world, until the theory actually makes sense and adheres to our perfect theory.

Let's call all those who are not convinced, using world as evidence, paranoid, or sick.....or nihilists, to hide how ill, and delusional, and nihilistic we are....in theory.
Let's ignore experience and measure it all in theory.  

Does the body forget?
No, only the mind does.
Does the body lie?
No, only the mind does.
Does the body conceal, or hide?
No, only the mind does.
It covers the body, to not be betrayed by it.

Image is a cultivated, refined, form of character.
Character may be an intuitive, self-repression of personality, but image is a conscious adaptation of character to create a particular effect within a specific audience.
It’s targeted character building.

Φ

Cult of Personality
A wrongly named process of image building, developing in a religious-like worshiping.
Usually associated with social roles involving the selling and buying of personas, such as acting and politics, it has evolved into a sophisticated form of self-promotion, and social engineering one’s own reputation.
MANifesto: Art – Entertainment – Entertaining Ramifications – Audiences – Actors
The most well-known form of cult of personality is practiced in movie making and the business of creating and selling myths, fantasies, alternative realities.
With the influence of Bernays it has spilled over into politics and product selling of all kinds.
Manufacturing consent, or manufacturing image, involves the association of the product with a primal need, through the prism of a particular idea(l) that establishing the measurements/judgments to be applied.

It’s roots can be found in the primal phenomenon of imprinting. Young, naive, desperate minds, attach themselves to the first thing they see which promises relief. This occurs automatically as part of a newly hatched organism's survival during its first emergence into a threatening world.
Imprinting can be replicated with any first contact with individuals or ideas, that expose the mind to what fills it with awe, because it promises a solution to a problem it could not solve - either ignoring it or pushing it down into its subconscious. This first contact has the same effect as trauma, only it is of the positive kind, soothing a deep seated wound, or filling an internal void.
Similar to first sexual intercourse the event becomes memorable, and life-altering.

Related to immaturity it also participates in what evolves into the feminine disposition of being attracted/seduced by what is superior, promising safety, resources, power.

In Modern system it is also a byproduct of dissolving family relationship, absent fathers, and feminization.

Stunting psychological development, and retaining the individual in a perpetual state of adolescence, never going through the natural rites of ascension, retards the organism - this retardation is also called domestication, and we can see the effects in domesticated species such as dogs, or any species that has been bread to exhibit particular traits, and to be dependent, disciplined to authority, loyal, and non-threatening.

This manifests in particular choices, behaviors.
A need to be within a group, but, more than this, to stand behind an authority figure, now designated as an icon, an ideal to be emulated, and from there into a sacred being, a god-like entity, abstracted to the point of losing all its earthly dimensions, and retaining only the negative, or, more often, the positive ones.
Such an icon is usually deceased, or exists in an other-worldly realm, such as the big-screen.
for the follower he is a representation of an abstracted masculinity, imagined in any way imaginable, since it has been detached from its place within world, and has been made into an idea.
The icon, by itself, is an argument supporting the abstracted idea(l)s, especially when these idea(l)s are nihilistic.
His name alone is enough to produce an effect.
The icon is the image to be cultivated, and sold to as many as possible, because this effect is directed towards popularity, populism - the exploitation and manipulation of human minds

It's ironic that those speaking of power and self-assertion, and a mystical apprehension of otherness, are the first to refer to manuals, and defer to experts not merely to support their judgments but to create them.

Noble spirit does not denigrate a dog for being a dog, it denigrates it when it pretends to be a cat, or...a human, and then demands to be treated as if it is, just that.
He puts the dog in its place when the dog begins to demand that he, the human, behave like a dog, so as to justify the dog's delusion that it and the human are one and the same.

Censorship is not about suppressing errors, and false opinions, it is a fear that these opinions may be true, and that what has been held to be true was really false.

"Bullying" marks the strong by the weak.
Passive Aggressiveness labels aggressiveness, to expose it, hoping the embarrassment will return it under the veil of passivity.
Gossip was used to rally the beta-males against the alphas, by females who wanted to create "safe spaces" for them and the sisterhood to carry out their reproductive role as peacefully and certainly as possible.
The alliance of females and "nice guys" was a way of usurping masculine aggression - totalitarianism.  
What they, feminists, now call Paternalism.

Intimacy was a way the female ensured that she, and only she, ideally, could push the male's "buttons" converting him from mysteriously threatening to predictably malleable.
Females are envious not about the act of copulation but bout the intellectual, what she calls spiritual, intimacy a male might give to another female. Giving her the key to his psyche - exposing his "buttons".

Female promiscuity, other than the triggered, automatically, by the time it takes for an offspring to mature, six-seven years, is accompanied by ennui in relation to a male who has been demystified and easy-going, as in easy to manipulate and control, by pushing his buttons.

Sexual tension is relaxed, and the relationship becomes friendship, complacent, dull.
A matter of tolerating weakness and accepting it as a charming part of the other - trust meaning reliability, predictability, the other gradually losing all unexpected dimensions.
Stress decreases along with libido - because libido is an accumulation and retention of stress at the ready.    
As with laughter being triggered by the unexpected, or what is denied, rejected, happening to another, relief releasing stress energies, accumulated and retained for the fight/flight mechanism, as spasmodic hyperventilation.
Same as the experience of orgasm for the female.
Stress before a male bigger and stronger, in most cases more intelligent, threatening as the unknown other, released as pleasurable relief with his non-damaging intrusion, his penetration causing pain, accepted with lubrication, as pleasing - relieving.

This compared to the easy-going unification of the known - a immersion in other, where stress is reduced to familiarity - unity of sameness becoming one indistinguishably whole.
Stress released is less visceral, explosive, it flows out in a calm consistency.
Anxiety of solitude, individual before world, relieving itself through other.
Masculine/feminine lose themselves in oneness.
Intercourse of sameness before alien others.

Respect is a product of anxiety - before a possible loss or withholding of what is needed.
Female loses respect for male but gains him as a provider, a means of self-gratification.
He, no longer, fucks her, takes her, but pleasures her, makes love to her.

For the Greeks it was the male who birthed, created, procreated, γέννα, relating to bloodlines. The tribe was passed on through the male, not the female,. She was But a means toward this end , she birthed, τοκετό.
Judaism, inverts this, passing no the bloodline through the female. The male, father, is but the provider, the custodian, the one who facilitates her bringing to life what is rightfully God's.
He serves as God's stand-in.
Nice-Guy also serves as the state's stand-in - the State, the institution being the only masculine entity permitted to be masculine.
His blood, genes, are inconsequential, because the State reproduces itself noetically, memetically, through education, words, symbols.
Male, having performed his service, ought to become a representative of the one and only Male, God or the State - a surrogate mother.

Surrealism and the supernatural, is threatened after generations of living safely in its cocooned, sheltered, intersubjective environment.
Like a baby coming out of the womb, trembling, crying, not knowing why.

This is what is occurring in the States since Trump's election.
Trump's buffoonery directly correlating to the environment he is the product of.
Psychotics birthing a narcissist, and then whining about it.

I would rather die, defeated, on the side of the noble, with a clear understanding of what we were, and a bold banner furled upon the battlefield, for one last stand, than sit, on the sidelines commenting on how well the enemy fights, and how the two forces blend and bleed into each other.

I would rather fall as what I was, and not was what I should have been, or could have been, remembered for the fight I fought, and not if I was vanquished and not victorious; buried beneath superior forces my essence clear and sharp, not to be mistaken for the ones I cut into, spilling their guts all over me, bathed in their feces.
Let my words show me to not be part of the shit I drown in.

Rebuilding the Tower of Babel
When the time is ripe, men shall place the first stones upon the earth, wanting to reach for the stars, piece by piece, step by step.
In time, when the structure has gone above the clouds, they will slowly forget the earth below, and with no way to gather more material for their structure they will selectively take apart the walls they've built below, and rearrange the stones into new walls, methodically deconstructing the structure below their feet.
When, in time, there is nothing let to sample without risking collapse they will begin building with material available to them, high up there, like water and air, and construct invisible brick-work, and flowing rooms, thinking themselves gods, having forgotten where the structure rests.
But water and air cannot support mass against the earth's gravity, so they will curse this "evil" power and dedicate their minds to continuing their build in their minds, using concepts, made up of symbols, discovering that these materials require meditation to be mined and shaped, and so they will sit in deep contemplation, gathering their ideas, and mixing their symbols, as once their ancestors gathered stones and mixed cement that they made by pulverizing stone and adding to it water.
And, in time, their meditation will turn to slumber, when they realize that they can build faster and more effectively in their minds when the world, that makes it all so much more difficult, is ignored, and in their sleep, each in his own private way, the tower shall become a personal castle.

The Tower shall remain, as it was, and the new builders will continue their work esoterically, where gravity is not an issue, and the material can take any shape they can imagine.
But, gravity will not cease, and winds and rain will still degrade the Tower's roots, as the "new builders" slumber as kings, as gods, in their own kingdoms, atop the Tower's spiraling pinnacle, so far above the clouds. In time, Tower, and slumbering builders of the mind, shall tumble, having forgotten from where the ancient ones began, and how they gathered stones and manufactured cement to bind it.

Absent parents can impact the development of a child.
Missing a step, the child cannot make the leap to go beyond it.

A present parent can be as or more detrimental when such a parent acts as a step of heated steel, blocking the child, burning its delicate hand, preventing it from ascending.

Trump's victory is the Cold War dynamics experiencing a corrective adjustment.
We have the two variants of Nihilism, Abrahamic, spiritual, contra Marxist, secular Nihilism.
Cold War was a internal struggle between the two variants of a victorious nihilistic mindset - quantities over qualities, whereby aspects of opposing sides were absorbed and integrated into the others world-view.
Current Communist States functioning as Capitalistic superpowers, and the early absorption of Marxists social ideals, evident during the 60's are evidence of how conflict between these fundamentally shared ideals, expressed differently, can influence one another.

The animosity of Church and State is at the root of this internal nihilistic conflict - two variations of "positive" nihilism at odds.
Both use nihilism as esoteric methods of maintaining cohesion.
This conflict gives the impression of choice where the choice is over a variant that never challenges the foundations of a shared anti-nature ideology.
Trump capitalized on the dissatisfaction of those who were still in-tune with the Cold War, pre-sixties identifications - a small push back to this victory march of freakishness, and sexual dysfunctionality "normalizing" itself by adopting the institutional validation of what it is replacing, with a new fashion, a new type, a new method, of nullifying past/nature.

Prison Philosophy
When the idea(l) is taken from reality, detached, manipulated, converting it to a construct that no longer refers to the world it was harvested from, manufacturing meanings not present in reality, is a matter of covering what contradictions arise, with an emotional component - ambiguity, the magical Mayan veneer of insinuation permits the convention insertion of irrational concepts in unison with rational ones.
The final product is judged by how creatively it assimilates reality, twisting and combining it in innovative ways that remain true to the end-goal, the inevitability of the final solution.
Experience, sensual input, are inconveniences that prompt the mind to ignore them, forgetting they exist, or to justify them within the premises of its own established response/reaction.    
This process can only seek support in others, creating a communal self-referential creation, each dedicated to dealing with a small part of the real, allowing for the rejection of the perception of the world-view it implies but never admits to be considered - compartmentalization.
words play a decisive role in this process of self-deception, and manufactured complexity, to hide the obvious schisms in what cannot be harmonized into a cohesive mental-model.
Showing a preference for some words that imply an additional desirable nuance, evoking artistic leeway in using metaphors that cloud rather than clarify, redefining other words so as to fit into the desirable conclusion, by refusing use them as symbolization of the connection of noumenon to phenomenon, that would immediately limit their application - a reference to the authoritarianism of Reality, anthropomorphized under the myth that all is a human construct.
From God, through State, to the liberty of the individual's "authority" to define words and use them to manufacture his own reality, by connecting them in innovative ways - creating new meanings.

If all this is accepted as "positive" then subjectivity can start imposing itself as a declarative power, over a world placed outside the field of reference.
Philosophy made into art - selling itself as what stimulates the many, and permits them to find in its vagueness, its liquid forms, what emerges from internal sources - passion taking over from reason to harness the will.
Creativity judged by how well abstractions can be reconfigured, and how many of them can be assimilated, into an alternative - incorporating as many minds into its promise as possible.
How seamlessly it can reject reality, as it appears, and substitute it with its own theoretical fabrications - not to be measured against interactions not included in manmade relationships.
Nihilism a updating delusion, continuously justifying itself before new incoming data - threats to its already fabricated conclusions/truths.    

Philosophy as an artistic expression of esoteric needs, externalized and masked in convoluted forms, hiding essence so as to promote a self-flattering image - hiding in plain view, feeding both the desire to protect and preserve, and the desire to reveal, to be seen and be appreciated.
Phenomena sampled as sources of inspiration to manufacture the character-shield behind which the personae can remain safe.  
Philosophy for the incarcerated, trying to fill their empty time, with fantasy.   
A manual on how to tolerate and remain safe, next to your fellow prison-mates, and, at the same time, how to preoccupy yourself in the most pleasing ways.
Establishing a clique, in prison environments, is a good first-step.
Being nice to the guards, establishing and maintaining a convenient relationship, is a good next-step.
Within prison environments there is artificial environment loosely based on the natural one it emerged from - mirroring it, but slightly convolution the image, like one of those amusement park reflective surfaces.

Cost/Benefit

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

Hinting at an economic evaluation, cost/benefit expresses causality from the perspective of an intent.
The intent can be primal, such as survival, or as base as pleasure for its own sake, or it may be an idea(l) independent from the individual’s judgment, such as Nobility.
Man is the only animal that can intend an objective that lies outside itself, and because of this the only animal that can intend an objective that contradicts self – self-destructive, suicide.
Cost/Benefit measured against the approach to the desired outcome.
On a primitive level cost/benefit refers to the biological outcome of suffering/pleasure in relation to the desirable outcome of satiation, or gratification of a physical need.      

Φ

Space = possibility.
Tending towards infinity = absolute chaos, in lived linear time, or tending towards absolute order, as past, noetically extended to its conceptual limit.
Cosmos being the mitigating time/space, conceptualized as causality producing manifest presence/appearance.
Nature being a reference to order(ing), particularly pertaining to life = iterating, self-preserving, self-perpetuating order(ing).
Life implies a selection of order, adding to the limits already inherent in order(ing) - sophistication of order/chaos relating/interacting.  
Matter/Energy = Order(ing), meaning probability.
A limit to possibility.
Ordering, as consciousness, constitutes a placing of limits to what is possible.
Willing, is a placing a limit to order(ing) - discrimination. It presupposes consciousness which presupposes life. Self-Consciousness adding to the limiting process(ing).

Within this context cost/benefit refers to a judgment, measuring potential, possible consequences as these pertain to an intention, a willful movement towards an objective, or an idea(l).
It is the evaluation of probabilities within the vastness of possibilities, and their effect measured as time.
It is what the advantage of projecting, imagination, a product of intelligence, gives to an organism.
It is, therefore, easily corrupted by emotion, error in judgment, limited acuity and imagination/intelligence.
To deal with this potential error the mind samples from its first-hand experiences, and from second-hand experiences, by observing others.
Patterns within these sensually perceived and evaluated/processed experiences expose a pattern, a link, relationship, also called meaning, reaffirmed in time - repetition.

Good/Bad, or Good/Evil within Abrahamic Religions, are the evaluation of the outcome, the consequence, in relation to the intent. The intent can be something base, as in gratifying need, animalistic, or preserving self, survival, or hedonistic as the triggering of pleasure, or it can be in relation to a projected idea(l) with varying degrees of references to experienced world - ranging from contradictions, as in nihilistic ideals, or pragmatic, realistic.
   
Φ

Using the concept of cost/benefit is off-putting, insinuating a calculating mind measuring all of its options on a selfish scale.
It smells of capitalism and materialism, using market jargon and cold mathematics to judge.

In the Moment
Present is immediate past contained within the organism's memory as a point in time. This point in time determined by its metabolic rate, or the speed of its abstracting – neurological speed of processing, based on cellular systolic/diastolic rates.
Present is not a point, it is how fluidity is experienced, as a falling away.
What we call "present" refers to a vague point in space/time which has fallen to the past – the time required for the nervous system to process the data included in its vagueness.
An organism refers to it through causation – by evaluating the results in hind-sight, after-the-fact, trying to determine what exactly occurred.
Because most processes in organism are automatic, consciousness emerges primarily to deal with external threats, and not to perceive and to determine actions.
Its secondary effect is learning, through which the organism internalizes experiences to make them automatic (training, learning) adjusting automated (re)actions to make them more efficient, and effective.
As such, when in distress and the organism's brain functions are put on overdrive – or when some other circumstance or chemical effect accelerates brain functions – this contained space/time shrinks in duration, and the organisms experiences this as a "slowing down of time".
This is also called the zone, indicating an acceleration with extreme focus on the objective.
Organisms' actions, thoughts, experience minimal distractions, to leek away energies, enabling it to focus a near-maximum of its aggregate energies – synergy at its most efficient state.
Experiences are accentuated due to this extreme focus, as if they were something new.
Most of the data lost in the speed of (inter)activity and hyper-awareness, dropping-out of consciousness leaving only a feint hint of their passing, are suddenly brought into consciousness.
Other forms of this can be duplicated using inebriation, where the mind's peripheral awareness falls out of focus, leaving a more clear view of the object/objective.
Inebriation can also break down unconscious barriers of personae, allowing character to stand forth, before personae, as the primary actor.
Artists use this method to break down social conventions and psychological inhibitions, permitting them to spill out their repressed self.
Reliance on such external forms of release indicates an incapacity to permit self to be, or the presence of self-denial, fearing that what is performed, as character, is not genuine – self-deceit.
Symptoms of this self-deceit, requiring self-repression, can manifest as hyperbolic self-deprecation, or self-aggrandizement, pointing to the source of what the mind is repressing or deceiving itself about.

Abandoning the universality of morality must not settle for the absence of behavioral codes we inherit and do not create on our own.
We are a social species and what we appreciate in empathy and sympathy is because of evolved dependence, a product of our singular weaknesses forcing upon us compromises.
We are not the fastest, strongest, toughest species, so that we've survived because of our big brains, is because of a cooperative system that permits the birth of undeveloped offspring, dependent on the group, and its mother, for years - out of uteri maturation process.
Our survival, as a species, is tied into our necessary dependence.
 
Going Beyond Good and Evil would suggest a going beyond species identification - allowing the very meaning of the concept "species" to be corrupted.
What we call morality can only have meaning to a social species where the necessity for coexistence, evolving into codependency, establishes some innate behavioral forms of conduct rooted in the reproductive processes, from intercourse, to raising and weening offspring.
Reproductive cooperation is the precursor to social cooperation - erotic converting to agape.
Reproduction/Preserving of self, tolerating other, requiring chemical madness, to love of self in other, requiring heightened awareness of other and knowledge of self.

What we inherit is a predisposition to adhering to social group norms, highly influenced by our individual sexuality, and how we relate to others.
How we relate to others founded on our awareness levels, or our ability to discriminate, perceive and acknowledge divergence and to appreciate self, know self in relation to other.

We all have our own proclivities, which cannot be enforced nor taught, because then this produces self-repression and resentment, or a lifetime of alleviating what is denied and then justifying our actions. Nevertheless, some degree of self-repression is inevitable, when coexistence and competition maintain inter-group tensions.  

I'm all for allowing all to follow the inner call of their nature, meaning how the past manifested in  their presence, but what I am unwilling to concede to is accepting the costs for another's choices, just as I would refuse the benefits.
Reciprocity cannot be allowed to exceed a balance. If it does then a few pay the costs for the foolishness of an growing majority that has not born the full price of their bad judgments, or the full impact of their own nature/past.
Beyond individual differences establishing their own relationships there is a world within which this dynamic takes place, and remains indifferent to personal desires and how this was inherited, avoiding the individuals' responsibility.  
   
Every idea(l), whether inherited, or adopted as a guiding principle, must take responsibility for its own consequences.
Each one producing a particular kind of psychology.
The good and the bad ought to be accounted for, and not selectively accepted.    

What I know of morality is that it is based on the survival strategy of social cooperation, and heterosexuality.
What is human, in us, including the male/female specialized roles, is at the heart of our innate dispositions, to whatever degree these manifest in each individual.
Genetic mutations, flourishing due to sheltering and the decrease of natural culling, explains Modern identity confusions.
If this is an overcoming of man, then let each type face the brunt of its essence within a world where no intervening other adjusts costs and benefits.

There must be an algorithm to determine success.
One factor is desire - how much one needs to attain the objective.
Second factor is persistence - how long one is willing to spend in its attainment.
Third factor is awareness - an analysis to increase probabilities in a world of uncertainty.

Sensing
In sensing the formal unity of the body is continually dissolved into qualitatively distinct aspects of consciousness: seeing, hearing, touching, and so on. If modernity required, and was made possible through, new body images and new forms of embodiment, equally it brought the senses into prominence in a new way, threatening even as it did so the architectonic unity apparently established by these same processes. The world apprehended visually was not identical to the world revealed in sound, nor was it easy to relate to the world that was touched or tasted. The senses were differentially incarnated; the body that looked was distinct from the body that listened, or stretched out a hand to touch and hold (Strauss 1963; Katz 1935; 1989).
This either put into question the unity of the body and its world or left unclarified its coherence as a manifold. In the modern period the senses became the privileged, indeed, exclusive sources of knowledge of the world. And although the disciplinary regimes of modernity invoked an ascetic ideal as the foundation of order, reason and legitimate pleasure, the senses were also celebrated and valued to an unprecedented degree and in new ways. In relation to these issues a convincing phenomenological sociology of sensing has yet to be fully developed, but recent scholarship in a variety of disciplines has opened fresh perspectives towards such a development (Classen 1993; Howes 2004; Jütte 2005).
The early modern period has been characterized as the baroque; marked, vision as revelation and the modern articulation of seeing becomes evident.
For the religious cosmology of the premodern west seeing is the first (and not necessarily the most vital) medium in which the person draws near to something other than the envisaged object. It is an intimate sense, in which and through which the divine spirit is conveyed to its human host. Vision at once puts humanity ‘in touch’ with its creator and a strong mystical tradition in western religious thought longed earnestly for the moment in which God would be glimpsed ‘face-to-face’ (McGinn 1992; Leclerq 1978).
But within modern society the priority of seeing is a function of its role as a distance sense. Vision becomes consecrated to a wholly secular task of ‘picturing’ the world as an external scene.
Some, of course, regret the loss of intimacy that seems irrevocably to be the consequence of this transformation. And a sense of loss and separation, palpable in every contemporary access of nostalgia and melancholy, as a result colours the experience of even the most committed of modernists. It is not only the priority of the visual sense over any other, but the dominance of immediate seeing over revelatory vision that robs the world of its enchantment. Such views are easily exaggerated and invoke a somewhat fanciful narrative of a past, shared world in which the living presence of another speaker makes hearing and listening the primary senses for conveying and experiencing fellowship (Derrida 1976; 1981).
This view has also been associated with somewhat exaggerated claims, in a quite different ideological perspective, for the significance of printing and book production in the emergence of modern culture; specifically that the circulation of the written word encouraged the rapid spread of humanism and played an important part in a general intellectual transformation that remains notable for the rise of modern science (Eisenstein 1983). In the premodern scholastic community the manuscript text was usually read aloud to a group of listeners, and its transformation into the printed and individually available book allowed learning to free itself from the dominance of ecclesiastical authority, and encouraged scholarly communication among physically and socially remote individuals, forming an early ‘virtual’ community that initially required little institutional support. The transmission of culture became primarily a matter of visual reading rather than communal listening.
Such views are exaggerated. The immediacy of the spoken word may be a harsh and inescapable word of command that dehumanizes and humiliates, rather than the familiar voice in which a cherished and intimate relation is borne. Equally, the detachment of the text from the community does not always signal the liberation of the reader and thinker from traditional (or novel) constraints; most importantly, perhaps, the growing authority of the author who could now exercise an uncanny power over the isolated and unprotected reader. Not surprisingly the early modern period was productive of superstition, magic, heresy, and nonsense as well as seeing the birth (or rebirth) of the rational sciences, the invention of the novel, and Europe’s greatest age of drama (Martin 1994; Chartier 1994). Above all, by devotion to the senses and by an extraordinary development of sensuousness of every kind (Maravall 1986; -2000). It is the baroque spectacle that Foucault alludes to in the opening pages of Discipline and
Punish, hinting at an entire world of sensuous excess that bourgeois society will repress. The banquet, the festival, the performance, opera, as well as characteristic architecture and the heightened and dramatized bodily forms in painting characterize the sensuous world, as it was reborn from the neglect of a medieval culture that sought reality in symbols (Camporesi 1988; 1994; Harbison 2000; Bouwsma 2000; Buci-Glucksmann 1994).
In the sensuous awakening of modernity, a process that locates the origins of modernity firmly in the Renaissance and views the later emergence of bourgeois society as something of a late development, or even a deviation from its more fundamental form, a new ordering of the modes of awareness and a fresh articulation of their interrelations are adumbrated. Vision, it has been claimed, becomes the pre-eminent sense and the cultivation of seeing the most significant distinguishing feature of modern humanity (Foster 1988; Levin 1993; 1997; Shapiro 2003). Of course vision had been highly valued in the Judaeo-Christian tradition; the divine light came into existence prior to humanity and every act of seeing dwelt in its luminous essence. The blind were excluded from immediate participation in the primary manifestation of the divine mystery and their misfortune, thus, tinged with sin roused fear more than sympathy (Barasch 2001). It is just in this respect, however, that a fundamental difference between the premodern tradition of More importantly these views fail to note the transformation in hearing that along withthe emergence of new ways of seeing distinguish the modern social world. It is only recently that a more general social history and anthropology of hearing have been taken seriously (Attali 1985; Kahn 2001; Erlmann 2004). Now the history of music and the ‘soundscape’ of the environment form important themes for the historical phenomenology of modernity. Alain Corbin, in particular, has begun the task of describing the characteristic sound of early modern society. And just as new pictorial conventions in the Renaissance stimulated, amongst artists and non-artists alike, a search for valid forms of visual representation, rules and conventions for perspective drawing, and adequate techniques of illusionism, so musicians, including Galileo Galilei’s father, Vicenzo, and many non-musicians became concerned with formulating a satisfactory physical and mathematical account of musicality (Cohen 1984; Crombie 1990).
Vision and hearing are often described as the distance senses; privileged in the modern period as the means of gaining knowledge of the external world. In the development of modernity, however, the division between outside and inside is constituted both by the architectonics of the body and by a division of the senses. The senses of smell and more particularly taste are taken to be indicative of a purely personal region and these senses become increasingly confined to a region of incommunicable interiority.
The doctrine of primary and secondary qualities, which played such an important part in the development of the physical sciences after Galileo, systematized and refined what was a general cultural transformation in the sphere of sensing. Vision and hearing were construed as remote sensing devices that revealed the character of a common, shared exteriority; taste and smell, on the other hand, depended for their identifying qualities as much on the moral character and inner cultivation of the individual as on the nature of the object. Aesthetic looking and listening depended on the general cultivation of the individual’s senses and, thus, became primarily a matter of ‘taste’ rather than a mere registering of what was ‘there’.This very ambiguity, of course, became a focus for the development of philosophical aesthetics, particularly after Kant’s determined efforts to establish common criteria for judgments of taste (Kant 2000).
The transformation in the sense of smell is one of the most revealing aspects of the history of modernity. Corbin has elegantly described the transition from the collective understanding of smell as organized around the foul and fragrant, to a modern odourless environment. There is a considerable effort to eradicate odour of all sorts, the ‘toning down’ of smells in the modern period (Corbin 1996; Classen et al. 1994).
Interestingly, at the same time, a developing passion for stronger tastes, both sweet and spicy, becomes evident and is not accounted for simply on the basis of new sources of availability (Schivelbusch 1993; Flandrin and Montanari 1999). Medieval food would seem, to modern palates, mostly bland and unappetizing; medieval smells would be suffocatingly pungent.
The difference here is related to more general orientations; smell and taste are individuated senses but where taste, as it were, points outward and can be a mark of distinction, aroma is the secret inwardness of the person, lodged deep in the body. The ‘odour of sanctity’ and the ‘smell of corruption’ refer still to an unknowable interiority. Pleasant smelling scent masks the odour of decay, and if intense serves only to emphasize its unfortunate necessity. Good taste, however, can be publicized (Kass 1999).
In being interiorized and personalized, smell and taste have come to play a special role in the structure of recollection. Taste and smell often function to trigger and mark such memories, particularly those spontaneous recollections celebrated by Proust, in which the past seems to well up and live again within us, saturating our consciousness with the repetition of some forgotten event.
The history of touching and feeling in the emergence and development of modernity is the least studied of sensory transformations (Montagu1986; Harvey 2003; Classen 2005; Derrida 2005), yet its importance for a culture in which the surface of the body serves as a double boundary, simultaneously distinguishing each individual from any other and differentiating the outer world of objects from the inner life of the subject, is evident. The zone of touch is our only point of contact with both the inside and the outside, self and world. In marking the boundary between inside and outside, self and other, the skin, enveloping the body, plays a vital role in uniting the architectonic and the sensitive aspects of embodiment (Anzieu 1989).
Touch marks out our place in the world and hollows out a mysterious abyss within us; it defines the peculiar region, seized by Pascal, in which we actually live; a finite haven between two qualitatively distinct infinities. This is a region and not a line; an indefinite and variable zone.
‘Sensitivity’ is, first of all, the awareness of contact. Sensitivity is distributed over the entire surface of the body and animates its image as a living unity (Schilder 1964). The sensitive zone registers the resistance of the world without, and the recurrence of appetite and needs from within; it is also in the flesh that feelings of all sorts arise; the shock of grief, the twinge of recrimination, the ache of desire. We feel disgust as a special aesthetic and moral revulsion at touching anything impure, and awe at coming into contact with the sacred (Scheler 1987; Miller 1997; Kolnai 2004). What most excites disgust is the body’s own waste products and discharges (the intriguing exception of tears remains puzzling); a reaction that is so firmly institutionalized in the culture that most people have difficulty conceiving that it is not a universal and natural condition. Yet we need only consider the evident joy with which an infant will, accidentally allowed the opportunity, play with its own faeces to realize that here too we are dealing with a history of conventions. Equally challenging is the extent to which the erotic overcomes disgust, and might even be defined as the overcoming of a general fear of touching.
Historically the sense of touch also underwent a fundamental transformation and became part of the modern sensorium. The kiss and other forms of embrace became eroticized (Perella 1969). Violence became ‘civilized’ in the duel and organized through weapons that kept the protagonists apart. The transmission of power or healing directly through the hand was attenuated (Kantorowitz 1957; Marin 1988). Yet even slight accidental contact can cause offence and, where bodily contact is unavoidable as in busy subways and lifts, is highly ritualized. The potency of touch, ideally withdrawn from public life, continually threatens to break into and disrupt its orderly flow.

Psychological Predispositions
The difference between a realistic and idealistic approach to life and the world it finds itself within, can be divided into Top<>Down or Bottom<>Up thinking, corresponding to an approach towards phenomena through noumena, or noumena through phenomena.
Nihilism finds its natural disposition in the Top<>Down, idealistic approach.
It begins with the desirable abstraction, to whatever degree it is based on experienced world, and then proceeds to justify it by shaping world to fit into its established "truths".
Nihilism begins with a fabrication as a given, and then demands that it be disproved, absolutely, otherwise he remains convinced that it is no better or worse than any other "truth". Using nil as validation of whatever it took as being self-evident.
The realist begins from the position of nil, and then proceeds, through experience, to judge what is more or less likely, never expecting any final, absolute conclusion. He holds hypothesis as superior or inferior, not as certain, and adjusts his positions if and when new data is experienced, multiplying his confidence with every repetition of it. The onus is upon the theory to prove itself, not as absolute but as superior, basing this assessment upon perceptible, repeatable outcomes, and in reference to an indifferent world of (inter)activity.      

Not so for the Nihilist.
He expects his presumed theory to be disproved, and that it be disproved absolutely, otherwise he uses the absence of an absolute as justification of parity
He prefers to level cosmos to infinite space, so as to avoid the impact of matter/energy, representing probability, within it.
Whether he understands it or not, his disposition of a desire to escape in the uniformity of theoretical nil - infinite space/time, where no distinctive fluctuations can trouble his fearful mind.
Having abandoned the childishness of absolute order, as in God, he turns to the opposite, never letting go of the absolute, and hopes for an end in a future where his own inferiority will disappears in uniformity of chaos.
Unable to endure the uncertainty of his own presuppositions, perhaps sensing their motives, he wishes to pull the world down with him, so that even in the case of his own error he would have not have left anything behind to laugh at his cowardly foolishness.
Unendurable, for him, is the thought of wasting a life trying to make amends for the "injustices" of natural selection, he wants to spread his own feebleness by seeding doubt, and the ideologies of self-hating, life-negation.
Unbearable, for him, is the possibility that others will strive to stand-out rather than blend-in; discriminate rather than be blind-to.          

Dragging the world into the dark where nothing can be discerned, and he is no longer assaulted by his own reflection, where everything is a matter of touch, careful hands groping in the dark, with delicate soft fingers.
Somewhere where eyes no longer reveal what lies in the distance, and it can sleep and dream, with "eyes wide shut".

Paradoxes arising from quantity drowning out quality, over time, by selling victimhood can only be hidden, not erased.
To hide it the modern strives to reduce all to the lowest-common-denominator, of unifying victims, so that the "chosen to suffer" and the "meek, who shall inherit the earth" may cloud their majority-based powers, and the obvious contradiction of their own values and principles, often ones that distinguish them within the throng.
If they succeed then they can claim ownership of the identity they accused of prejudiced, and used victim status to manipulate.
Pity exploited to instill guilt, then shamed into making amends for past dominance.

This is how power is built upon feebleness - or quantities overpower qualities.
Pride through humility or faked humility hiding producing pride - Nihilistic inversion.
Nihilism must lie in order to survive.
This is why words are so essential to it.
Using words to convince minds that what they see is not real - using words to confuse and justify the delusional.  





Nihilism is a memetic parasite.
In the west it has appeared as Judaism, Christianity, Islam...in the east as Buddhism.
It's mode of reproduction is language, or symbols.
It infects the host, alters its behavior, takes over the mind, causing behavior contrary to the host's original nature - past.
With no genetic past, unlike the hosts it zombifies, it follows an inverse cycle - it begins as an idea(l), theory detached from world, and then strives to become genetic - inverting the process fro gene to meme, to meme to gene.
In racial contexts rather than being the product of genetic isolation, then producing ideologies founded on a common history, the memetic virus begins as an idea, reacting to the hosts presence, and then through the ideology enforces a behavioral isolation, while at the same time killing the host, or weakening its autoimmune system, by infecting it with ideologies that promote the opposite behaviors.

This is a suicidal process, yet to endure the nihilistic virus manufactures a benefit that exceeds any suffering, or costs to its earthly life.  

Such a mental virus does suffer from the effects of the hosts' effect. It must hide its essence from the host, so it takes on the symbols, the image, of the host's ideal's. In time it become convinced that it is, in fact, no different than the host, or that the host was never any different than after its infection.
This is what is called self-deceit.
Contradictions must be hidden, or dismissed as non-existent - the host must forget, and the virus must be convinced that it is, as it always was, part of the host.
This is not the case for more base viruses, like the ones in the video, but when dealing with memetic viruses we can assume a level of cognition that does not disturb the bases varieties automatic parasitic behavior.
What occurs in human mental viruses, like the ones we broadly call nihilistic, including within the category many different types of parasitical memes, is that the members of the virus themselves, having weakened the host to the point of total collapse begin realizing that their own influences, causing the host's disease, is now also threatening the virus, which cannot survive outside the host precisely because it is Nihilistic, and denies a reality it will be returned to, if the host dies - the sheltering membrane of the host's outer periphery dissolved, the parasite will be exposed to a world it may deny, but it cannot escape.
For the more fanatical members of the virus this is not an issue because they still have this alternate "reality" to comfort them, as a final reward for carrying out the behavior that distinguishes it - pride of a little parasite killing a formidable, powerful, host by insinuating itself internally, because it has no chance to challenge it openly.
Then there are those members of the host still numbed by their self-deceit - unaware of their own role in the host's decay - trying to find the causes elsewhere, going so far as to accuse the host of purposefully dying because it has lost interest in living.
These creatures are the most dangerous and pathetic. They live and die, in their own hypocrisy, continuously pumping their viral dis-ease into the host, naming it invigorating names, associating it with the host's ancestry, to maintain the lies that they are an inexorable part of the host's essence - that they were there, from the beginning, as more than just existential anxiety, and the challenge of immature insecurity.
Being the product of feebleness, exploiting feebleness, they try to associate their belonging by referring their existence in the host's infancy - not as what has been overcome but as a destiny.  
But then there are those few self-aware parasites that awaken to their own essence and the role they play in the hosts' demise, like Weininger, and Heisman, who choose to carry out their destiny, in accordance with their own principles, quickening the process of self-annulment.
 
In the est the virus incubated within the host, relieving the stresses population and resource pressure produced.
With no Hellenic sea-fairing people to to invigorate it with a dose of Cosmopolitan openness, and with no past history of a tribe being rejected, forced to be an outcast that had to invert its status to find the will to endure, the memetic virus, in the east, took a different path, and not until after contact with the west did cross-infection begin to converge the two strains towards a secular form - humanism.

When all becomes abstraction, easily modified using words to represent it, then even natural laws become authoritarian imposition upon the 'freedom" of human beings to reinvent themselves as anything they dream-up.
Who can hate, or shame, something as abstract as patterned processes?
The feeble-minded modern, wants to do what his ancient predecessor did when he faced the mysterious, the threatening, like natural catastrophes, sickness and death, and invent a face to grovel before, and accuse.
Does not the modern personify nature's "fascism" with the faces of those who expose it to him?
Does he not grovel and accuse him, because he has no other way to rid himself of his frustrations?
Does he not dream of doing to them what he has done to himself, and to the environment he pretends to care about?
He does not care for nature. What he cares for are parks, fenced-off preserves, zoos, to visit and then leave to return to his safe zones.

His horizon begins where man intervened upon nature to create, for him, a safe-zone.
His philosophy begins and returns back to people - grand, impressive, infamous figures he worships and strives to emulate.
He studies philosophy, he does not practice it.
And because he only studies perspectives of the world, he deals in words, symbols, politics, religion - the areas where human brains live within safe-zones.
What lies beyond it is to be selectively accommodated, defined, reformed in a way that can be assimilated within these safe-zones without disturbing the "harmony" - that fake, veneer, of culture, plastered with flyers, and catch-phrases, and the faces of celebrities, and all sorts of symbolic insinuations while underneath a seething turmoil of anxiety and confusion looking in other for direction, for identity, for purpose and meaning.
Building castles in the sands of human pop-cultured fashion trends, trying to keep-up with what is "in" this season.

War of words is a war against everything that restricts man, limits his progress to his idealized self.
War against nature is war against an immutable, determining past.

With no way to confront what stands in the way of becoming what he wills what's left to man but the products of his own mind?
With declarations, and name changes he twists an undesired world into a step to his preferred one.
He intrudes upon reality with his symbols, covers himself with them and then pretends that what was there before is dead and buried, but he is not convinced, knowing his own ruse, so he invites others to accommodate him, to validate his new identity - he demands it as his "right", and the ones who refuse to play-along he accuses of hatred, unable to understand why anyone would refuse him such a simple act of acquiescence when he is more than willing to reciprocate.
In his face he recalls what he covered and tried to forget - he despises the one who will not stop reminding him of the unfairness of natural-selection, of the brutality of indifference.
Who can he appeal to?
Where can he turn for help?
Who can he blame for a past he despises and he cannot escape, no matter how many external interventions he applies?
No, not himself, not his inheritance, but someone else.
Yes, the one who will not play along.
He will be the target of his wrath, his self-hatred.
If only he could rid himself of the one who, just, will not accommodate him, for no reason at all, but spite, then he would finally be free to be "himself", free to reach his full potential.
