When "The Tribe" got rid of the gold standard it made money a god on earth.
Utopia is the equalization of potentials using money to compensate and 'correct' inherited injustices.
They made themselves god's bankers – collecting taxes and investing in god’s will.
Money is another semiotics framework; language using representations.
In this case, they refer to ideas, concept... abstractions.
Money has become tangible idealism. The perfect abstraction for inter-subjectivity: it can mean anything to anyone, and its ‘value’ is determined by supply and demand – entirely determined by human interactions.
With it one can manufacture more than Chomsky’s consent. He can manufacture wants, incorporating needs and desires into a trendy product.

When man scraped the images in his head upon a stone, and could then carry it around, and save it, and bury it, and then dig it up and find it still there, he thought he had come upon a magical power.
He showed it to his companions and explained what the scraping on the stone meant, making them smile, and admire him for his new invention.
The stone with the marking became a talisman of power.

He could keep it, or give it away. He could throw it, hide it, and wash it...and it would not fade.
He realized that even when he died this mark would remain behind. A thought made immortal.
Ideology was born.

Base morality uses the body to define itself.
What survives and what propagates is good.
Genes
Self - Subjective
PAST

Nihilistic morality uses mind to define itself.
The idea/ideal -  that survives and propagates is good.
Memes
Ideal - Ideology
FUTURE

Aryan, or noble spirits merge the two.
Genes extended as memes, in the PRESENT.
Morality is what produces the highest possibilities.
Past projected through the Present towards the Future.

Memes is limited by Gene, and its ability to overcome, without linguistic declarations and rejections, in the present, is deemed superior - good.

Cause <> Effect.
No gap.There's a flow.

The momentum IS the existent.
Pattern IS the particle, matter/energy.
Movement is not what happens to the existent...it IS the existent.
There is no 'thing' that is affected and affects.
There is only process.
Interacting....cause/effect.

Existence = the dynamic, (inter)-active = Flux.
the dynamic can have a predictable repeating consistency (order) or it can lack a predictable, repeating, consistency (random).
Yin/Yang
Chaos/Order

Cause/Effect refers to the before (past) and after (present).
Past = cause - immutable, unchanging...
Present = effect - mutating, changing, interacting - Flux.
Future = projection of objective - ideal.

Cause = Memory
Effect = Experience

When we say the 'gods are with us' we mean the forces of nature.
Nihilists may create a short-lived memetic bubble, maintained with numbers and words, creating a small noetic enclosure, an echo chamber supported by psychological energies, emotions and desperation.
But how long can such a noetic construct continue without contradicting itself; without lying to itself?
All we have to do is wait.
These things go in cycles, of ascent and descent.
At its most powerful the noetic bubble reigns supreme, but it cannot endure.
Its effect wanes and it tries to adjust its lie, as more reality seeps through its convoluted self-referential cracks.

History of nihilism, from religious spirituality, to its more recent secular forms, has been a series of adjustments to incoming new insights into reality and natural processes.
Their sacred books are being rewritten, having been written with this in-mind.
Obscure, vague, convoluted....so as to be able to maintain a secret lie, as their core ideal.
One pretence is replaced with a new translation, words replacing outdated words.
The lie is concealed when is is revealed. Guilt and shame inhibiting a sharp glance from noticing.  
Reality baptized, renamed, incorporating newly revealed insights, into its steady, absolute, unifying hypocrisy.  
The masses running from one farm to another, when the weather destroys the barn they huddled within.
Slaves casting one master's metal chains aside to wear gold necklaces; breaking iron neck-collars to put on debt; cutting the noose to wear the suit and tie.
Physical bars replaced by mental ones.

They cannot see what is before them.
They refuse to acknowledge patterns.
Self-lobotomy, pretending to be self-respect.

Most prefer to see the 'forest' and ignore the 'trees'.
The forest becomes a mass of uniformity, with no details, no distinguishing marks.
A concept.

Like the concept 'river'.
It can be used to apply to any and all liquid flows.

Like humanity.
An idea(l).

Nature/Nurture, within the framework of world = Past/Present/Future -
Determined/Real/Ideal
Object/Subject/Objective

Past is determining of potentials = nature.
Past is immutable. One can either know it, or reject it, but not negate it.
Past manifests as presence - present.
The consequence of knowing or rejecting, ignoring, is suffered by the individual.
Group intervenes to mitigate and adjust the cost/benefits = socioeconomic ideologies, politics.  
Intervenes upon natural processes - causality.

Present is the indeterminate dynamic = nurture.
Present cultivates potentials, or lets them atrophy. In the present limits are slightly exceeded, or slightly regressed.
Present is interpreted as appearance.
Appearance is the interpretation of the past made present.

Self/self/Ego

Ego = conscious self: 'I' - Will. Mind
self = birth to death = sum of all becoming, dynamic (inter)active, experiences/knowledge, memories - Nurture. Appearance, Action, Choice
Self = sum of all determining (inter)actions: DNA - Nature. Body

PostSubject: Re: Satyrnalium Tue Jun 26, 2018 10:48 pm

There are two kinds of moral standards...one is based on genetics which then develops into social moral rules.
Having sex with your child, or parent, for example.
This produces unwanted mutations, which severely hampers the infants ability to survive independently.
This evolves into an antipathy towards sexual encounters with first-degree relatives.
If it is broken severe genetic mutations are produced.
A second example is violence against your own group, which severely inhibits cohesion and risks the survival of the entire group. This develops into moral rules against killing members of your in-group.
Even primates exhibit this unstated rule against murdering a member of your own group, for no reason.

The second standard is memetic.
This is governed by a collective goal...an ideal.
Depending on the ideal a behaviour is deemed undesirable or desirable, which is then enforced by calling it moral or immoral.
In the case of monogamy the goal is male-inclusion, and group stability...so social rules against intercourse with a 'taken' mate ensures in-group harmony.
Rules against adultery inhibit promiscuity, and in-group conflicts.

For the sake of clarity I will call the first morality (genetic), and the second ethics (memetic)

Best way to discern one from the other is to ask yourself:
If there were no rule of law, what behaviours would persist, and which would not, because they do not require human rules and laws?
We can even study how our primate relatives behave in the wild, especially chimpanzees.

Immediately we realize that adultery, as a prohibitive moral rule, is not one that would persist...since the human species is not monogamous.
Monogamy developed later. Without it civilization, as we know it, would be impossible.

The first moral law is enforced by nature....because it produces detrimental, to the offspring, genetic consequences.
The second ethical law, is enforced by men, with specific ideals and goals. The act itself is not immoral, in any spiritual universal sense, but it does risk the cohesion of the group, so it is unethical because it challenges the group's rules and threatens its survival.

Morality has to do with behaviours that challenge survival, or conflict with a group's chosen ideal.
The first is indisputable.
The second is relative to the environment.
For example, if a group's ideal is hedonism and another's is power, the environment will determine which ideal will dominate...which ideal will offer an advantage to the members that use it to govern their lives.
If one group idealized idiocy, for whatever reason, and another idealized intelligence, then both ideals are not equal. The environment determines which one will succeed and which one will fail.

It is also possible to place an ideal above survival.
This does not mean that all who place an ideal above survival are equally noble.
Again, the environment, nature, will determine which one offers an advantage and which one is detrimental to the individual's well-being.

For example, let's say a pedophile places his ideal of having sex with five-year-olds above survival. He is willing to risk his life to do it.
This is not the same as the one who places dignity and pride above survival and is willing to die than lose either.
Both create a kind of man....a certain attitude, demeanour....essence.

In man-made environments the system intervenes, sheltering the inferior from the consequences of his own errors in judgments or his inferior ideals.
It does so for its own reasons.
As a consequence, morons believe that all morals are equal, or that all morals are manmade, and that all subjective judgments are the same, are equal.

In the past there was no law against killing a mate that was caught cheating. This was changed, protecting all cheaters from the consequences of their indiscretions.

Rules against 'fucking your friend's wife' evolved in Aryan tribes where fellowship was a necessary aspect of a group's success. A male invested, genetically, in the welfare of the tribe would fight like a warrior to protect his investment in blood.
In the wild, if we take chimpanzees as our example, a kind of polygamy is practiced. the dominant male has his pick of the group's females, and the other males sneak in a sperm or two, once in a while, in secret.

Paganism has been corrupted by its association of corrupting dogmas, such as those found among many Satanists. Devil worship is an inversion of the same monotheism dualism found in Abrahamism, yet it is now referred to as ‘paganism’ because it uses the hexagon and declares itself so. Asian occultism is mixed in to ruin Olympian nectar.
The product is, almost always, gaudy and insincere. A performance the participants themselves do not fully believe in, aping gestures and rituals, parroting mantras.
The source goes back to Nihilism, and the power the cult of victimhood leads to.
At some point victimhood, meekness, gains so much power and influence over the masses that it begins to contradict itself.
We see hints of this in the Christian churches, and clergy who as representatives of ‘God’ are supposed to serve the poor and the downtrodden, adorning themselves with gold and living opulent lifestyles of comfort and privilege.
Marxism experienced a similar dissonance when it rose to power. Suddenly the 'leaders of the proletariat' had access to lavish lifestyles they became addicted to – amassing wealth by selling revolution to the impoverished. This is also called the Jewish Paradox.
Which brings me to the present state of affairs.
Power built on victimhood begins to contradict itself – it must lie to hide this conflict. At the same time what was once threatening, like Tribalism, Paternalism, Nature, becomes a new awakening, a new ideology.
To put it another way…
Nihilism detaches the mind from the body, the ideal from the real, and if this becomes popular and gains privileges and wealth, it seeks a return to the past it had detached from, but this time with newfound power.
Its victimhood makes it powerful enough to victimize. It suddenly realizes that it cannot prolong its hypocrisy, so it involves itself in the gradual reaffirmation of what it once despised.
But too much time has passed and the continuity has been broken. So it adopts the superficial disguise of paganism and tribalism, putting on gaudy shows, and lavish symbolic displays of its reawakening.
The slaves rise to the throne and hold control of the empire that enslaved them, and they begin acting like the masters they dethroned – wearing their clothes, eating their food, performing their rituals with such vindictive gusto that they go over the top. Exaggeration exposes their past.
Their words become hyperboles; ridiculous attempts to compensate for what they truly are. They wear the mask of the master they tore off his skull when all they wanted was to free themselves. But it does not fit well. They cannot pull it off. They can only convince the masses, the mediocre, and the average. But that’s enough, for them. They’ve always been about associating with the lowliest and the inferior, building strength on weakness, and pretending gnosis by exploiting ignorance.
Paganism is readopted but by those who worshipped the mono-god of their slavery: the emancipating redeemer, the messianic vengeful god of Abraham.
How can they now return to the gods they denounced, without exposing their hypocrisy?
The US, for example wears the symbols of Pax Romana, but the performance is so poor that it can only fool the simpletons. Its elites participate in secret organizations where they gather in secret locations to go through the rituals that imitate what was lost when they destroyed it as they rose to power.
They change their names to fit in, but they cannot change their spirit. They mate with the master's women to assimilate, to appear the same as those they hate, but the memories are never lost.
They use base races to destroy what they can never be – diluting blood that does not run through their veins; learning the master’s ways, hoping to be like him.
They are aliens wearing a crown that does not quit fit... and they look ridiculous when they try.
They call themselves 'illuminated' but they cannot escape the darkness they rose from.

Genetic/Memetic filters, hijacked to serve a new master.
The dis-ease corrupts the filtering, through the mind....as it only exists as a mental, noetic, construct - noumenon with no reference to phenomena.

Women 'despise' Paternalism but then feel its absence when it is no longer present.
They look for a cult, or indulge in this role playing kinky shit, Rogan speaks about.

This is the gene/meme conflict manifesting as sexual fantasy - fetishism.

Guess what "born in NY" is code for.
The 'revolutionary spirit', as Jones calls it, is Nihilism.
Rebellion against reality, against the past...against natural order...a one-god symbol of rebellion against the gods.  
A revolution of words, because one cannot truly rebel against reality, but only lie about it, pretend he is free.

I've called it 'inverting'....noetic overturning.
Noumena usurping phenomena - ideal usurping the real - ideology.  

Communists are now renamed, as are Abrahamics in all their forms.

The all or nothing, is the either/or binary logic of the simpleton...the nihilist.
Such a create assumes that if you agree with an individual's insight, in one area, that you must also agree with all his insights, or that you also accept his conclusion, his judgment of this insight.

Animals do not sit around debating the morality of a choice, nor if it is good or bad.
They convert judgments to actions - their evaluations never remain theoretical.

Only man, who can shelter himself within a group, like no other species can, and who can fabricate and project theoretical actions, or construct theories that have nothing to do with the experienced world, can be come perplexed by their own noetic constructs, externalized in semiotics.
Only man can confuse himself because he can externalize abstractions in the form of symbols/words, or project theories in a theoretical beyond, or a forever coming future. only man can intentionally entrap himself in noetic constructs, using language to convince himself either that he is god-like, or that the world is an illusion, that it is irrelevant.

Every organism judges world and itself in relation to it, and then faces the consequences, but only man can cocoon himself in a social womb living out his life in isolation and in comfortable delusion, protected by the group.  
Democracy enforces communal sharing of burdens and then is confused by the false parity this produces, to the point where he demands ti as his 'right'.
Without it there would be no debate.
Right or wrong, every individual would suffer the costs, or enjoy the benefits of his judgment.
There would be no debate over the 'morality' of abortion, or euthanasia....because there would be no communal sharing that demands others are convinced to share the burden of an error in judgment.
It would not matter to anyone, other than those involved, if a underage female got an abortion, or if someone believed race was a social construct.
The consequences would be immediate and indisputable. Even the attempt to blame others would only harm the idiot who failed to acknowledge his, or her own culpability.
Post-modern liberals, or nihilists, want to share the costs and the benefits....fearing more the costs of their won idiocy, and naive idealism.
This is why they insist on socialism and sharing of costs, so as to evade the consequences of their own stupidity - they sell ti as an feel-good egalitarianism of parity and belonging and love, when all it is is a intuitive anxiety, a secret fear, concerning their own quality of mind and the feeble judgment it produces.
Moral dilemmas are, for them, a way of convincing others to share the byproducts of their mental feebleness.  
They do so by shaming, using altruism, or by convincing others that their judgments are worthless, offering the only solution: communal judgment - communism.

They want to be 'free' from consequences, from the past - free to be carefree sluts and careless adolescents, and then for the system, the community to pay for the consequences, either as welfare or by providing free abortions.
They want to experiment with their bodies, taking drugs, fornicating using other orifices, indulging in child-like exploratory behaviour, and then they demand others stand by to save them, or to pay for it all.
They want to absolve themselves of poor genes, and an inherited inferior mind, by using guilt to impose upon others  an obligation to protect them, furthering the illusion of equality.  
Their own insecurity they want to unload on others.

The essence of morality is revealed in the manner in which it is applied.
For most there are a set of moral values to be applied internally, and another set of moral principles when dealing with the world outside the social unity.

Nihilism goes a step further, being entirely disconnected from reality, in one degree or another. It contradicts its own principles and then fabricates excuses, or ignores the fact.
With Christians, for example, they have set-up the perpetual excuse of primordial sin, allowing them to live in accordance to natural laws, throughout the week, and then on the last make amends and beg for forgiveness.
In this way the internal is harmonized with an external world which remains indifferent to human delusions and methods of escapism and self-comforting.
The ideal is continuously contradicted, in relation to the real, and then affirmed, in an act of contrition.
The ideal is pure, a noetic abstraction considered sacred, struggling to remain pure within the 'evil' real world.
Schizophrenia.
Mind is Divine God, and body is the Devil that seduces and leads the mind astray.

One has to marvel at the level of idiocy displayed by moderns.
From where do they think 'morals' came from?
From God?
Did some proto-humans invent them, and then force them upon thousands of generations afterwards?
Why are there common principles in all moral systems, like altruism, compassion, tolerance, love?

Did god create love, or did man invent it out of the ether?
Their desperate need defines words in ways that mystify them...like the word 'love'. Then they are baffled by their own self-deceit.
The define the word in an supernatural, surreal, way and then are heartbroken when they never find it - some intentionally do so, so that they can excuse themselves from failing to find it.
A coward spends a lifetime looking for a concept he's defined, or accepted a definition, making it unreal....and then, because he has failed to find his own fabrication, he wants to infect others with his own delusion so they do not find it either - a last cowardly act of retribution against a world he could not accept, or understand.

Have they no intellectual integrity, or are they that stupid?
Evolution is enough.
Survival of the fittest applies to ideas, theories, morals, ideologies....scientific methodology practices it.

From genes to memes.

Sheltering warps the outcome, convincing the imbecile that his judgment is no different than that of a genius...because he demands to be protected form his own poor judgment - he considers it his 'right' to remain as stupid as he likes, until death finally takes him away.
He is, often, a socials advocate, because he knows that within sharing the costs of his bad judgments, he will surely die sooner, rather than later.
So, in love with his life, he is, that he would rather sacrifice integrity than risk death.

Ideals that are contradicted by the real world are harder to remain loyal to.
Those few who reportedly managed to do so, for more than a few decades, or during the last part of their lives, we call saints.
Most of those so-called 'saints' are sanctified after death, when memory selectively recalls, and the individual himself is not present to contradict the narratives that have been built around his name.
To some degree this is also rue of all famous men and women, from pop-idols, to philosophers.
After death their legacy is purified, idealized, and used to promote a fable around their supposed exploits and writings.
This is easier if the individual remained obscure and mysterious, during his lifetime.
Gaps in knowledge allow worshippers to fill them in with their own fantasies.

What is reduced to a noumenon, an abstraction, whether it be by detaching it from the world of phenomenon, or if it is purified after death, is always malleable.
After death a man can be vilified, or sanctified, his presence unable to contradict this narrative.

Like a word can be vilified or sanctified, by simply disconnecting it from its reference to a real world phenomenon.
This does not change the real, it only affects the believer, in a positive or a negative way. It's psychological.

Abrahamics projected their god in a 'beyond' or refused to depict him, or even utter his name, fearing this reduction of the noetic to a phenomenon, like a spoken word, or an image, would 'dirty' the idea itself.
Muslims refuse to portray their Abrahamic god, and so do the Jews.
Only the Christians, influenced by Hellenism, and after much bloodshed, portray the one God, dividing him in three to protect the divine from wordy corruption.

Moderns think they are over Abrahamism....that they've surpassed its fairy-tale storylines and symbolism, but they are not.
They've secularized it.

They still believe man holds a distinct place in existence, and that anything that has to do with the human must be the product of a conscious mind. If not god, then man himself.
This reaches the level of insanity, as it has with post-modernity. It is the 'logic' of Abrahamism pushed to its limit.
If not God, then man, or men....imposing, by force, what they invented. Liberation, then, becomes a matter of breaking free from these imposed artifices...and become your own god.
Man as creator of himself.
Some, less confident ones, cannot deal with the pressure and the responsibility of what this implies so they want the community to decide for them: outsourcing their godly creativity.
But, at the root they all believe the same thing.
If not a one God, Divine Consciousness, then Man himself, or Mankind as part of a communal project inventing reality, creating the world.

For post-modern Marxists nature is authoritarian, and fascistic.
They cannot hate a faceless entity so they have to personify it, anthropomorphize it.
So, most are attracted to Abrahamism, trying to cozy-up to the faceless power they are confronted and threatened by.
But then this Abrahamic construct proves to be just as authoritarian, so they rebel.
Nihilism is, essentially, a rebellion against natural order.  
Then they become individualists, declaring themselves a supreme authority, believing that by conviction alone they can liberate themselves from all external authorities...for faceless and those with faces. This is called 'subjectivity'.
That proves to be ineffective, and naive....some begin blaming nameless, faceless forces, or they flee into the collective, where they can manipulate by playing the victim, or by practicing reciprocity....mutual concessions. As if the collective can change the world just by collectively believing.
A few become pure nihilists, but they do not wish to go to death alone, but wish they can take the world with them.

Essentially they need a mind, a face to accuse, or seduce, or beg, or bargain with.
They need a consciousness.

The idea of a faceless unconscious authority, like nature, terrifies them most of all.
Who can they accuse and blame then, other than themselves?
Who can they grovel to, who can they beg for mercy and 'fairness', and justice?
From who can they demand their 'rights', on humanitarian grounds?

The Moderns needs someone other than themselves, to unload what burdens and shames the self.
They go so far as to deny 'self' an existence, defining the concept in ways that makes it absurd, then rejecting all rational definitions as being equally linguistic contraptions.
They do this with all concepts they wish to 'erase' from their consciousness, and in the collective-consciousness of the group they wish to be protected by, by immersing themselves into its uniform warmness, its all-embracing humanness.

Basic advantages of post-modern obscurantism:
By remaining vague it can claim to have considered, assimilated and surpassed what it is confronted with from without. It is forever reinventing itself in secret and integrating every external threat, after the fact, as belonging to its subjective core.
By claiming the 'esoteric' it is essentially using subjectivity as an excuse to hide its intentions and weaknesses. It then manipulates semiotics, adjusting them to pull in the threat, concealing contradictions in ambiguity, offering 'explanations' that uses words to convert an absence of substance, and to trigger emotional rewards, acting as a narcotic upon the psyche that prefers the pleasing comfort of the internal to the unknown, source of endless anxiety, of the external.
All Modern art-forms  (fArt) uses this method... including what is passed on as 'philosophy'.
With no objective, external world to limit the use of form and hue, the mind is released to cope with what it has rejected, internally, hoping that the world beyond will be taken care of by the collective, or some magical power that is benevolent and eternally sheltering – metaphor for the collective.
Consider abstract [You must be registered and logged in to see this link.].
How we to judge what are is intentional, or a product of talent from what is garbage, anxiety vomited outward, begging, desperately, for attention and acknowledgement... for validation?
Beauty is reduced to an ideology, a subjective construct that can adapt the external to internal desires, or fears.
In intellectual matters, idiocy can hide in vague text that pretends to be deep and insightful, offering a secret knowledge, a power to the desperate powerless, using the audience's own desperation to compensate and hide its own.
Who can validate or appreciate quality when the evidence is 'inside' the mind of the speaker, the fArtist, who can then claim to have considered whatever challenge he is faced with, adjusting his shallow stupidity to accommodate the threat, as if it were part of it from the start?
Art and philosophy becomes a game of symbols not daring to show itself openly, directly engaging the world, fearing that the creator will be exposed as what he truly is - intentions hidden behind rhetoric and emotionally triggering verbiage, to then be able to claim any intent, adapted to the audience he wants to ingratiate himself in, and to exploit.

The coward and hypocrite always places validation of his judgment in a realm that is entirely subjective....in a beyond or the vague internal.
This is essentially subjectivity using other words to appear more sophisticated.
If you agree with the speaker, you are one of the few who understands, if you disagree or expose his methods and intentions, you are one of the many who does not understand.

It's a way of choosing and being part of the 'chosen' few. A way of protecting self from an indifferent world.

All true artistry and philosophy places the standard of validation outside where all can judge the ideas and art for themselves, selecting themselves to be excluded or included.
The standard is objective...sensually perceived, and indifferent to all judgments.
It begins from the simplest, where even an animal can appreciate some degree of what is then exposed in its intricacies.
For example, a philosophy begins with the sensual where an ape, a chimpanzee can also acknowledge its starting premises, and then advances towards the more complex, leaving behind simpler minds and selecting minds that are more sophisticated.
The entire process of weeding the inferior out of the ascent from Bottom<>Upward is transparent, not secretive.
Reality filters-out the feeble-minded, the cowardly, and the ones void of intellectual integrity.

The peak can be discerned from the lowest places. Even those with poor eyesight can discern a pinnacle they can never climb, nor see clearly.
It is not hidden inside...it is not internal, where it can be declared to be whatever the desperate mind, the needy psyche, desires it to be - a private world, for his \chosen' friends and him to seclude themselves and play with their legos...not logos.

That's the counter-intuitive, subversive, risk, isn't it?
That masculine 'rant' to confront feminization normy pretentiousness.
That's what's it is all about...the risk, that counter-intuitive 'hate-speech' exposing itself as nauseousness.
That's what it is all about.
How far are you willing to go; how much are you willing to risk?
It is what separates the male from the fe-male.

Dare...come what may.
No drugs, no reasoned risk can hold you back.
It will separate you from the herd.  
Come what may, be true to what you are. Hold onto what you are.
Possess the only thing you have that distinguishes you from them: integrity.
Remain honest only to those who deserve it. All else, let them be means to your ends.
Use them.
They deserve no more, and they can hope for no less.

What you cannot save, let go and allow it to face its own inevitable end.
What you cannot change, step aside and urge it forward to follow its own destiny.
What you cannot convince, nurture it on its own idiocy, manipulate its momentum, feed it its own internal feebleness, knowing that nature, the gods, are the final arbitrators.

Let things unfold and take their own spontaneous course, meticulously detaching yourself, as much as possible, from the outcome.
What is left absorb, endure, and convert to an experience, a lesson, that will inform the next instance.
Because patterns are about repetition.
Do not grasp, but nudge - a spinning wheel will sever your fingers if it is held tight.
Do not stand in the way, dance and direct with subtle graceful movements.

Hubris: the rejection of the gods as anthropomorphic representations of natural forces.
The layman believes in them literally, but the wise man knows they are but symbols.

The hypocrite overcomes them by inventing a singularity that cannot be justified within world but only without it.
He sacrifices reality to attain a false 'height' of narcissistic hubris; a noetic 'beyondness' where multiplicity is imploded, in his 'creative' needy mind, into an abstraction, a flattering, terrifying and rational idea(l).
His brain becomes the uni-verse, singing its own praise. He hears the echoes and confuses them for an external will.
Multiplicity implodes into a thought, and this thought becomes his world - subjectivity's gravity well.

The artist suckles on its mother's teet, embracing her warmth, listening to her heart-beat and to the soft lullaby she is singing.
But there are those who, due to the absence of a better term shall be called 'monsters', dare to push away, finding themselves floating in the silent abyss.
At a distance they see their mother's bosom, a feint hint of her humming voice reaches them, and what they've left behind and lost is replaced with a brutally honest vision of their condition.
Some go mad, others implode under the pressures of internal life-forces relating to the external void.
A tiny minority evolve, merging contradictions, becoming rigidly pliable, and hard in their softness.
An internal struggling order compensating for the external flux.

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

Have we not been duped for far too long, by such contrivances?
Everything and anything can be redefined esoterically, in the mind...another way of saying 'by the subjective'.
The method of mental manipulation using language to exploit human ignorance and weakness.
History can be changed, events reassessed.
Philosophies and philosophers redefined to fit into different ideals, sometimes contrary to the author's intent.
It's the practice of semiotic manipulation, a Tulmudic method of reinterpreting language, using verbal challenges training the mind to exploit the mental dissonance produced by confusing the representation of the abstract, as the product of interpretation of the phenomenal, dynamic world.
Detaching the noumenon form the phenomenon, using language, permits a reinterpretation, the re-connection of the text to a alternate reference, such as a book, or an ideology.  
The empirical, real world, is circumvented as 'illusory', or as secondary, selectively ingratiating it after-the-fact to a desired conclusion.
Retaining obscurity, while claiming to desire clarity, the charlatan places evidence inside himself, or inside the target mind's psyche where emotions, desires, fears usurp reasoning.
Usually the 'evidence' is found in scripture, some sacred text, full of innuendo and insulation.
Similar to how abstract art (fArt) sells itself to unsuspecting naive masses, exploiting human needs and anxieties.
The talent-less fArtist sells his authority, his implied talent and intent, by allowing the spectator to project into the nonsense his own feelings and meanings.  
The piece of fArt is a trigger point, alluding to nothing, and so it can be anything. This allows the prevailing delusion of 'all is subjective' to claim power over the nothing.
Shapes and words used to stimulate, with its nonsense, all sensual projections, offering only a pretext, a canvas, or a shape, a noetic boundary within which the individual finds a wholeness, a final encompassing of his own confusion, his own lostness.  

Consider any piece of modern fArt....reaching the absurdity of a blank canvas with a red dot, or a line across it, sold to pretentious feeble minds for small fortunes.
The 'talent' is that of the agent who sells the fArtist's talent as a given; his 'depth' of insight as a presumed 'fact'.  The fArt is of nothing....no meaning.  This is what allows it to be anything, to anyone, at any time.
like clouds are reminders of running stallions or birds in flight, the forms are meant to trigger whatever the observer is preoccupied by at the moment.

Time is the measurement of (inter)active probabilities creating a field of possibilities = space.
Time is the relationship of subject to this dynamic, fluctuating object, field. The organism's own metabolism is the foundation of temporal measurements, measuring change, or the friction of (inter)activity.

The space/time continuum is of patterned (order) and non-patterned (chaos) energies, corresponding to predictable and unpredictable outcomes.
The unpredictable is integrated into the predictable for the subjective interpreting consciousness who can only process order and so believes the outcome is always inevitable, perceiving it after-the-fact.
It is experienced as a slight modification with no precedent - novelty.
Unpredictability necessitates a dynamic reaction/response - creative consciousness, as opposed to simpler forms of life, which is more automated and requires little creative adjustments to genetic programming, and to non-living energies that have no creative input, no memories to inform their ongoing interactions, and simply follow the path-of-least-resistance.

InterAction = attraction/repulsion, determined by the energy's essence, or its frequency/tone, its rhythm of vibration/oscillation and how it relates to other energies.
Memory establishes a standard to evaluate the interaction, juxtaposing it with stored precedent.
It offers the organism an option, necessitating a choice, which will then determine, or influence, all subsequent options available to it.
Memory becomes a storage of interactions (experiences) that gradually accumulate altering the organism's reactions. In simpler organisms, like plants, this does not require a conscious participation, but is mechanical, the accumulated experiences altering the DNA, which is how memories are stored.
These accumulate tipping the balance toward or away from an option, producing choice.
In higher organism, those with brains, the choice is more informed by the past, enabling the mind to choose a path-of-more-resistance, projecting, in space/time (probabilities), a bigger return, in comparison to the present.
The particular (inter)action is surpassed, transcended,, by projecting probabilities, based on precedent, stored in memory. The organism evaluates the options with a deeper perceptual-event-horizon.

Academics and Philosophers
Difference between knowing, academically, and understanding, viscerally, is the difference between hunting and killing your own game, choosing its morsels, and digesting it without giving it a second-thought, unless the particular game challenged your skills, or used some unique evasion, and having the game prepared and served to you, then wanting to know who the chef was, and how he managed to cook the meat so well, demanding the recipe to replicate the style, and knowing the culinary schools and the world techniques, keeping it all organized and labelled, recalling dates and places, as if this constitutes understanding, or the talent to replicate what you've never killed, skinned and had to prepare, on your own.
The hunter digests, and recalls the taste and the kind, assimilating his kill into his very being; the gourmand, seeks guidance, popularity, exotic dishes, and studies the techniques and knows the cooks.
A mother praises the child every time it fails, waiting to persist, offering tips on what to do, as if persisting will eventually produce the desired outcome; the father shows, chastises, challenges, shames, and insists that the child not be outwitted by a beast, nor recall its name when he downs it.
Whether of body or mind, the idea is to consume, enjoy and then digest thoroughly... and quickly.
Herbivores regurgitate and mull over the same blades of grass, wanting to grind every last drop of nourishment from it. Its mouth never stops moving, when at rest. It has evolved two stomachs, one for positive and the other for negative ideas... a bipolar, bilateral digestive system.
Carnivorous are more efficient. They consume and digest quickly, riding themselves of the remaining toxins before they poison their body.
If they fail to absorb every last nourishment from the particular kill is of no importance – they will kill again and it will be of the same kind, using the same techniques.

The herbivore obsesses over food; the carnivore eats and then sleeps for days, then plays and just sits, meditating, before it hunts again.
Isn't addiction the body's obsession with pleasure, and is not obsession the mind's addiction to what it fears will not be tasted again?
We cannot forget how energy demanding the brain is, explaining the mind's appetites and its inability to satiate, and to calm itself. Body is slower less demanding.
