Russian barbarians are Europe's last hope. Europe is too infested, by a parasite-meme, and too infected by a virus-meme - called Nihilism - to be able to awaken form tis death-slumber.
Barbarian Viking blood will invigorate it, if it survives that long.
Orientals will provide the distraction, the energy draining menace to peel away American hegemony.
The culture-of-no-culture is dying. Obama was a sign. The slew of imbecile representatives of Presidential power, is another.
Currently Trump is trying to arrest the damage done, but the parasite-meme has already determined the American empire's fate; it has already infiltrated and infestation the core of the host it is draining. See who controls pornography, pop-music, food industry, Hollywood, television, 'News, media, art, i.e. fArt are indicative of its decline and it will take the world down with it, into this Dark Age.

Strangers among us
The alien component reveals itself through its double-standards.
An obvious indifference towards what it feels no allegiance towards, and a different behaviour towards its true allegiance.
It does not care about how its behaviour affects the hosts health, its children, its future, justifying it as part of 'nature's way', yet it shows no such callousness towards its own kind. There it takes care not to harm or corrupt, placing profit below something more valuable.

This is how it exposes its true nature.
One set of rules for others, and another for self, and its own kind.
It treats its own kind differently to how it treats those it pretends to be of its kind, exposing who it actually is.

The father test, or the parent test, if you prefer.
Would a father, who loves his child, do to it what this interloper does to those whose children it feels nothing for?
Would it sell to it what it sells to the children of those that it feels no real identity with?
Would it expose it to things it exposes to the children of those it pretends to be like, so as to not be identified as an alien?
Would it treat its own mother, or wife, as it routinely does the wives and mothers of those it pretend to be like?
Would it promote the same ideas and ideals to his own kind, as he does to them, for profit?
Would it place profit above blood?
Follow the money, they say.
I say follow the blood.

Cognitive Limits
The boundaries of philosophy can be traced along the four-dimensional possibilities and their combinations.
Any advancement would require an evolutionary leap exposing what can no longer be regarded as a human mind to more possibility/probability combinations.

Within the Nihilistic context I am a 'negative'. I negate their negativity towards existence.
Why did Nietzsche call himself a nihilist?
What does the negative of a negative sum up as?

once desperate degenerates have been convinced that Knowing Thyself is a necessary first step, the question arises....'how?
How can an individual avoid self-aggrandizing, and self-flattery, or self-abasement, to come to a clear and, as much as possible anobjective conclusion?
This has been explained and implied and repeated....so no need to do so once again.

It's a simple and yet free from subjective corruptive elements, such as ego, emotion, and self-interest, method.
It's the only method.

What I like to do, sometimes' is to watch and wait to see how long it will take for a 'smart' man to figure out what and who he is dealing with.
the infection of 'equality' warps many judgements, and they persist to treat others as if they were worthwhile, and they could use reason to come to some kind of consensus.
This shows a naivete not only about humans but about what the world is and how it works.

It's like one of those test they give dogs or chimps, when they hide a treat and then test the animal to see how long it take it to figure out how to get to it.
How long will one moron figure out that the other idiot is more retarded than itself?

Know what I found out, so far?
Most often than not, the 'exchange' ends in a stalemate or an agreement to disagree, or a gradual drifting apart with no resolution, each side believing he/she got the better of the other.
It's hilarious!!!
The entertaining part is to wait for that sudden gleaning of awareness that the other is a moron, beyond repair...and a fleeing away, as fast as possible.
Sometimes it takes days, sometimes weeks, months....I've even seen it go on for a year....

The source of life's woes is also the source of life.
Chaos.

Explanation of Life, Free-Will within the contexts of Order/Chaos

On the continuously fragmenting (expanding) microcosmic level chaotic & ordered energies (forces) (inter)act, manifesting as presence on the macrocosmic level; presence is interpreted (translated) by a conscious organism into appearance (phenomenon), developing the ability to convert appearance to a form it can process (noumenon).


Chaos (randomness) does not only make life possible but it makes consciousness an advantage (necessary).
Consciousness is the dynamic adaptation (reactive adjustment) of organisms to random events - otherwise conciousness above a certain level would be superfluous; all would be automated.
This advantage is clear when comparing less sophisticated organisms, i.e., plants, with more sophisticated organism's, i,e., animals: the former relying on the slower method of trial and error, whereas the later evolving a quicker reaction to changing environments and unforeseeable events.    

Ergo, the random (chaotic forces/energies) are integrated (organized) into the organisms interpretations of what is being continuously made present.
Organisms can only perceive order, given that they are ordering themselves.

In Kazantzakis' Ascetic (ΑΣΚΗΤΙΚΗ) he described 'god' as a fellow being that struggles alongside lesser beings, i.e., man. Though he does not define what this 'god' struggles against, I can only surmise that a god that is not omnipotent, not perfect, not absolute, struggles against its nemesis its opposite, i.e., chaos, defined as randomness and not complexity.
Life struggles against chaos and against other life, being of a lower rank in the cosmic hierarchy.
For Indo-Europeans their gods were supreme but not absolute - not omniscient, omnipotent, omnipresent, infallible, perfect, complete, i.e., absolute.

Heidegger in his description of the Latin versus the Hellenic (Greek) understanding of 'truth' gives an insight into how meanings can be lost (corrupted) in the process of transmission/translation - mirroring the loss when organisms translated the present into the apparent.
Heidegger, Martin wrote:
With regard to the Latin name for the true, verum, we shall keep two incidents in mind:
1. Verum, ver-, meant originally enclosing, covering.
The Latin verum belongs to the same realm of meaning as the Greek αληθες, the uncovered – precisely by signifying the exact opposite of αληθες: the closed off.
2. But now because verum is counter to falsum, and because the essential domain of the imperium is decisive for verum and falsum and their opposites, the sense of ver-, namely enclosed and cover, becomes basically that of covering for security against. Ver is now the maintaining-oneself, the being-above; ver becomes the opposite of falling.
Verum is the remaining constant, the upright that which is directed to what is superior because it is directing from above. Verum is rectum (regere, ‘the regime’), the right, iustum.
For the Romans the realm of concealment and disconcealment does not at all come to be, although it strives in that direction in ver, the essential realm determining the essence of truth. Under the influence of the imperial, verum becomes forthwith ‘being-above,’ directive for what is right; veritas is then rectitude, ‘correctness,’ we would say.
The originally Roman stamp given to the essence of truth, which solidly establishes the all-pervading basic character of the essence of truth in the Occident, rejoins an unfolding of the essence of truth that begin already with the Greeks and that at the same time marks the inception of Western metaphysics.


The difference between how the Romans translated the Greeks is still with us in our conception of Universe rather than Cosmos (ΚΟΣΜΟΣ).
The Hellenic spirit, though not entirely Faustian, according to Spengler, retains the essence of openness, of uncovering the undisclosed, whereas our English understanding of 'truth' comes from the Latin 'veritas' alluding to enclosures, which is the Abrahamic understanding of it, represented by the 'absolute', i.e., god, alluding to completeness, perfection, wholeness, oneness.
An absolute is rooted in Abrahamism, or the spirit of nihilism, enclosing itself off from a troubling, uncertain, fluctuating reality.
Absolute is an 'enclosure', a wholeness, a oneness that is absent not only from experience but from Hellenic understanding of aletheia, which indicated an uncovering.
As inheritors of the Latin translating of the Hellenic spirit - civilization based on a culture - we are engulfed in the Nihilistic concept of an absolute enclosure - sheltering, covering, protecting, i.e., defensiveness, victim psychology etc.
When Judaism came in contact with Europe it was through the Roman understanding of the Greeks, exemplified not only in how we understand 'truth', i.e., through the misinterpretation of alethiea as veritas, but also in our conceptions of universe, in antithesis to the Greek kosmos.
We are trapped in our misconceptions, in an Abrahamic universe, and not in the open ended spirit of Cosmos, representing Spengler's 'Faustian spirit' - as the true spirit of Indo-European culture; we still believe in a one-god (monotheism) even while convinced we are atheist, or agnostic, converting the absoluteness into scientific jargon which is dominated by the 'belief' that all is ordered, i.e., all is knowable, representing this universal 'truth' in our 'laws of nature', reflected through our self-disciplining 'laws of logic' - both manmade representations of man's knowledge and understanding, viz., man's experiences stored in memory through the ages.
As was noted organic experiences are based on organic presumptions (a priori concepts) and limitations, produced when the present is translated into appearance as part of the organism's self-organizing automated processes - this is where the random is 'lost in translation', and man begins to develop the illusion that his own interpretation, into abstractions, are not mere representations (approximation) but more 'real' than the represented - which remains unknown and unknowable.
The second phase of losing ourselves in our own translations occurs when the apparent is converted into abstraction by more sophisticated organisms with nervous systems and processing organs, i.e., brains.

Insufferable Distances

A distance separates observer from observed, noumenon from phenomenon, subject from object, the idea(l) from the real – a necessary distance the Greeks called erotic.
It explodes towards the expanding infinite, and implodes towards the unfathomable abyss. That space is where the gods reside, and where art sets sail upon the void.

Φ
For life to emerge a distancing has to take place: skin, exoskeleton, membrane, representing a separation of 'emergent unity' from cosmic Flux.
For consciousness to emerge a distancing of mind from body; for self-consciousness to emerge a distancing of ego from self.
When this separation progresses to a certain level, alienation begins. Then begins a reverse process of desiring to return to synthesis, as an antithesis to the separation process; a desire to re-turn to the womb, to re-merge with mother.
We are born and live alone, no matter how many children we have, or friends we make. In our last moments, we are entirely alone. Nobody will ever hear our dying thoughts.
In life we are distracted from our seclusion. Most cannot tolerate it, always seeking refuge in others. God is the ultimate refuge. How can we endure his death?
Like a child not yet mature, losing a parent, it imagines them idealistically, recalling them tenderly; it cannot let them go. The orphaned child hears the parent echoed in its internal dialogue, it sees them moving in its own gestures, hearing them in its own tone of voice, smelling them in its own sweat. It believes it is in dialogue with them in times of trouble and despair. Their words advising it, comforting, and guiding it.
How can a mind born and raised with the Abrahamic one-god, let go of its comforting presence, its all-embracing power? An addict needs a new vice to overcome his addiction.
As long as there are children remembering a dead parent, the parent lives.
Could it be any different for gods?

Φ
Distance makes the 'heart grow fonder'. The mind perceives distance as an open field of unresolved possibilities; an expanse of potentials. The world does not intrude on the mind's evaluations; all merges and separates, at will. The loss of detail permits speculation, and the positive, predictably, most often dominates. 'Good from afar; far from good'. Distance allows the spirit to forget and to forgive; a cleansing open expanse of space/time between observer and observed. The mind stands in the open, safe behind a wall of distance. Possibility and duration lose their immediacy; remoteness pushes them away, towards the horizon, viz., the edge of perception.
Distance is what language uses to detach mind from the physical, the corporeal the tangible, i.e., world; language is maintained in its purifying vagueness, acting like an internal mediating distancing; an imitation of fog, fabricated through the intentional ambiguity of symbols.
At a distance all seems perfect, serene, and beautiful; the mind projecting, filling in gaps in perception with its own private desires; at a distance the object is concealed though it stands revealed, i.e., all fades with time, and all fades through space.
Past is cleansed of its worse elements when memory recalls events from the distancing abysmal depths of space/time. Distance is divine, sanctifying all, permitting the mind the indiscretion of washing away what was written, and replacing it with its own plagiarized and slightly modified script.

Φ
Past victors future vanquished
The victor presents the vanquished as a vice forgotten, and left behind. The vanquished present the victors as a virtue recalled and returned to.

Φ
Man feels his own absent substance not only in the sensation of need, and the suffering/pain it inevitably results in, but also in the sense of terminal loneliness that grips his mind and casts him down into the depths of desolation.
The void of his being permeates his existence; wanting to reach an end, but fearing it even as an imagined and unattainable hypothesis. He drifts from object to objective, each promising him relief, all delivering nothing more than a momentary distraction – he might forget himself, for a time, in the spectacle that engulfs him, finding comfort in a warm embrace and a seductive tender touch (seeking its own relief), surrounding himself with mementos of his past escapades, contrasted in the pageantry of his present, but he can never escape.
He rests for a time, like any weary traveler would, embracing these spectral objects of his desire, feeling in their mysterious otherness a hope he cannot fully defend nor completely give-into. He lets himself go – when he dares to abandon himself to the madness – knowing that his joy will be brief and his parting will be certain.
There is no escape. The more he advances towards self-realization, the further along this road he goes, the harder the trek becomes.
He might then, being enlightened by a wisdom he’s gained along the way, abandon some of the burden he carries; he might throw away vast amounts of his earlier illusions, learn to ignore the shiny materiality of his youth, feel lighter for a moment when he dares to cast away the garments he once found himself in, but still there is no escape. He loses himself in the isolation. His endurance is his damnation. The further along he goes, the more alone he becomes. Others fall behind, unable to bear it or to maintain the rhythm of the march, unwilling to leave anything behind to do so – so attached they’ve become with their objects that one cannot discern them underneath their baggage – and those that remain enter his peripheral fields of perception, like ghostly visions pushing and pulling at him, and he reciprocates, until twisting and turning into a dance they find comfort in each other, before the centrifugal force tears them apart once more.
Spaces open up when the contrivances of man are left behind. The horizon is now seen along with the vastness of the distances that separate. He tries to focus upon a variance: some projection, some blade of grass, something distinguishable in all this uniform absence – some small oasis to settle down and build around, and to finally rest.

Darwin called it 'survival of the fittest', Schopenhauer called it 'Will to life', and Nietzsche renamed it 'Will to Power', wanting to make life and survival, a secondary motive, and not a primary corruptive one.

We call it 'objectivity', ascribing to 'subjectivity' survival and living motives.

Johann Wolfgang von Goethe wrote:
The Godhead is effective in the living and not in the dead, in the becoming and the changing, not in the become and the set-fast; and therefore, similarly, the reason is concerned only to strive towards the divine through the becoming and the living, and the understanding only to make use of the become and the set-fast.

Singularity<>Duality<>Quadrality>>>>>
Life's perceptions have been progressing in accordance to expanding space/time dimensions.

From the singularity, it doubled to binary logic and dualities, represented by the brain's double-hemisphere, two sexes, etc..
We are entering a doubling phase adding to the dualities extension and duration, making human perceptual fields four.
In mathematics addition/subtraction is complimented by division/multiplication.

Consciousness begins with the perception of otherness.
Simple organisms, such as plants amoebas, have no conception of self, only of otherness.
Gradually the dualities merge to discriminate between otherness in simple generalities, i.e., edible/inedible, friend/foe, danger/safe etc.
The next step was the emergence of self-awareness, setting up an I/other, also splintering other into degrees of distinction, i.e. more and/or less friend and foe, with time measuring the fluctuating between the two, i.e., gradations altering in time.
I (self as subjective standard)/Worse-Better (degrees of distinction with a bipolar field)/Fluctuation (time, measuring movement within the field).
The I remains static, replacing god as the absolute standard (subjectivity), and the other is now dynamic, never absolutely good/bad, but either/or - an increase in stress accompanies this advancement (sophistication).

The next advancement would add four to make conceptual an eight-dimensional space/time.
We cannot even imagine what that would be. Human brains are binary, only now advancing towards a quadruple conceptualization, i.e, I, better/worse/Time.  

Some want to regress back to a singularity, a oneness, i.e., God. Things are simpler, easier, comfortable...safe.
There is no I/Other only 'I'....rather than the organic simplicity that only perceived 'otherness'.
This regression is inverted by the stress self-awareness produces. Mind instinctively flees back, trying to protect the organism, inverting the perception of universal 'other,' into the perception of universal 'self'.
All is 'self,' therefore there's nothing to feel insecure ashamed, and/or afraid of.  
The simple organism's conception of otherness - still a source of stress - and no 'self' - no self-awareness - is converted and inverted into a fleeing into the ideology of 'all is one and the same self' - Zoroastrianism, Abrahamism, Marxism.
Division of mind/body implode into theoretical singularities, i.e., ideology.  
This is Nihilism, viz., nullification of distinctions; idealization of uniformity.
A intentional regression caused by emerging self-awareness exposing the mind to increasing levels of stress.
The need to self-medicate is part of the coping method.
The current identity crisis is a desperate fleeing away from the insecurities and vulnerabilities the awareness of 'self', in relation (comparison) with another, produces.
The anxiety/fear seeks relief in oneness - a cognitive return to the womb.

Math will eventually add four formulas as advancements of addition/subtraction, multiplication/division.  
There was no possibility for mathematical linguistics before the mind advanced from binary logic towards a quadrupole. Addition was advanced by multiplication, subtraction by division.
the next phase of evolution of cognition will add four more to establish a octal system.
In physical terms the brain should divide into four hemispheres.

The Last Man is the man who beleives inm 'telos', whether he knows it or not - whether he admits it, to himself, tr not.
He's already reached the end, of philosophy of awareness, of knowledge....he is the peak.
He laughs or mocks any attempt to go further, because he is the last - there is nothing more beyond the end - telos.
Quintessential Abrahamism - Christianity 101 = I am the alpha and the omega.
The Last Man is the 'omega man' - the man who emerges before Armageddon, before the second coming - the end of times.
Nothing matters to him - he is the perfect cynic. He has no future, only a presence and a past - he is plant-like; he is pure Nihilist
In this he is the antithesis of his brother the 'positive Nihilism'; his brother's opposite - the other side of the binary paradigm.
A 'positive Nihilist' is also an end, but not as a negative - nil - but as a positive - as the One. He declares himself god - end of the line - peak of the existential mountain. He is first among the last men.

With no differentiation there is no subject relative to object.
Without non-life, there is no life.
without unconsciousness there is no consciousness; without consciousness there is no self-consciousness.

Distancing is what produces intent - liberty from unintentional, Flux.
The possibility of a free-will can only become probability in relation to unintentional Flux.
There is no free-will if there is God's Will. There is no intent, in absolute order, or in absolute chaos.

It's within the absence where possibility makes sense - within the increasing plane of possibilities - expanding space/time - probability distinguishes itself as becoming more than 'possible'.

Absolute order implies certainty...not possibility, not probability - inevitability, i.e., fatalism.
Absolute chaos implies uncertainty, not possibility nor probability - all words/symbols lose all meaning, i.e., oblivion.

Nihilism in practice
Without intent, there is no better/worse, no good/evil - no good/bad.
With no subjective objective, there is no judgement - where there is no judgement there is no choice; with no choice there is no will.

The dynamics of interactivity can be explained without anthropomorphic references - an intentional attempt to convolute.
For a consciousness all seems intentional, and inevitable, because it uses itself as a standard and it experiences the present after-the-fact. its 'standard' is imperfect and feeble, ergo its projections are warped - either based on an overestimation or an underestimation. Mortal being cannot help but imagine immortal gods.
The quality of the individual's self-knowledge determines the quality of the reflected image of itself - nevertheless it sees itself everywhere, i.e., in all phenomena, it perceives its own noetic constructs, because this is the primary, primal way of understanding other - sympathy - projection of self into another's 'circumstances'.

Self-awareness produces insecurity and one of the defences is to convert another into a version of oneself - making the unknown alien, an intimate known entity.
Psychology becomes the foundation of awareness.
For Christians this became humble arrogance, believing they 'deserve' eternal life, and the care of a god - a benevolent god watching over them; believing that they were made in his image - reflections of an idealized self.
Their emerging self-consciousness produced such a sense of insecurity and vulnerability that a one-god became a matter of survival.

The comedy/tragedy of life is also found in the fact of its imperfection - in the absence of absolutes itself.
life may direct itself towards an objective but this objective is not necessarily attainable, and it may even be non-existent - the organism is not omniscient, so it can only direct itself using what it knows, and what it knows may be incomplete or based on an error in judgement.
Judgement is founded on imperfect data and imperfect sensual awareness - survival of the fittest. The superior judgement will survive; the inferior will perish - if no mitigating entity does not intervene, as in the case of Modern social systems.

Self-knowledge, if it is attained, may be warped by ego, emotion, self-deceit, illness. An individual does not necessarily know himself/herself completely - no absolutes.
Another may know an individual better than it knows itself.
Self-consciousness, in fact, corrupts consciousness, just as much as it accentuate it. What the mind becomes aware of can be so traumatic that, in order to survive, the mind may corrupt its self-awareness, warping all subsequent relationships with other.

There is no infallible judgement - no absolutes - because there is no omniscience and no omnipotence. The organism uses itself, as a standard, which is imperfect.
Ergo, all principles, judgements, evaluations, ideals, are approximations.
Every choice can lead to death, more often than it may lead to life - over time judgements increase in quality, but this does not mean they are eternally gifted to remain there.
An individual may inherit the potential for good judgement which may be left to atrophy - never cultivating it to its full potential - or he may be corrupted by environmental factors along the course of a lifetime - nurture - memes - multiply and/or divide inherited potential - genes.
Linguistic warping is a symptom of mental corruption. The intentional or unintentional misuse and abuse of symbols/words indicates a corrupted mind.  
Anxiety/Fear has the greatest corrupting effect on judgement - though it may focus the will, by disregarding the inconsequential - it may even freeze the mind or place it in a state of panic.

Time = juxtaposition of cosmic momentum with organic metabolic rhythms.
Measures change - and/or interactivity, Flux.
Measuring time is based on a triangulation between subject (conscious organism) - objective world (indifferent, unconsciousness momentum) - measuring standard (usually the organism's metabolic rates, or a quartz's steady rhythmic vibration can also be used as a standard. In past times a pendulum's arc, within the earth's gravitational and magnetic fields was the standard).

Claiming that something is eternal, that it has always existed is an easy way to validate beliefs you cannot otherwise validate.
It's a cop-out.
It's the preferred method of pseudo-intellectuals who want to claim absolute knowledge and understanding but cannot justify such a claim.
It attempts to arrest infinite regress without a plausible justification.
It's a baptismal 'magical act'....like saying 'all is perfect, and change is part of its perfection'. It uses words to simply declare by renaming phenomena into something that implies a desired outcome.
It's so easy that the majority are seduced by its power - based on linguistics. A mind need only name something 'good' or 'perfect' without giving any explanation or evidence.
'God is perfect' & 'The universe is perfect' - a self-serving Magian declaration - that which makes us possible is, 'perfect' and 'good'.
Why? It has always been so.
It's how parents silence the endless queries of children - "Just because!"
To say that the Cosmos just is, and it has always been, is just a way of admitting ignorance.

In this Nietzsche's adaptation of Hindu cosmic circularity did a great disservice to the minds of the young males who eventually became addicted to his exciting prose and inspiring, to them, 'wisdom' - because pre-Socratics and the greater canon of Indo-European cosmology was unknown to the majority - trapped, as they still are, in Modern Nihilism; as was his transformation of Schopenhauer's 'Will to Life' into a more heroic, Aryan, 'Will to Power' - ideas boys that had lost their connection to their own heritage - via the father - found intoxicating, having never heard of such things before; ideas that sounded mystical as if they were being delivered from a divine source.
Circularity cannot be proven, nor does it imply repetition of the same.
Nietzsche's brilliance was as a psychoanalyst, and he presented us with a test of our life's choices, confronting us with a dilemma: Would we feel content with the idea of repeating the same exact life we are currently living, ad infinitum? A psychological test.

Cyclical time does not imply repetition of the same. It simply indicates a repetition of existence - in one form or another. It presupposes a confined space-time, guaranteeing an eventual repetition of the same.
Current multi-verse theories break out of this restriction. Repetition occurs but never in exactly the same way - one universe, one phase in the cycle, is not a clone of another - as there are no absolutes there can be no perfect copy, no absolute cloning - not even genetic twins, or actual clones, are perfectly alike; not even transistors produced on a modern assembly line are ever absolutely alike.
Each phase in the cycle is slightly different than the previous one - this can only be so if there were the element of chaos, properly defined as randomness. Without chaos there is no possibility (space) but only certainty (singularity) - no actual divergence; all is implied as being uniform, only appearing to be different.
Existence is a trick, an illusion, a farce; the Devil's work.

The idea of existence as a film on a movie reel that continuously plays, is absurd, and nonsense.
History repeats because chaos can never completely - absolutely - usurps order, so some patterns emerge with every repetition, but it never repeats in exactly the same way.
Every cycle is slightly different.
Like every copy of the same genes are slightly different - not only because of a different synthesis of DNA, but also due to the mutations that the process of copying (replication) produces and are passed on.

Dope-o-mine junkies have to have a good pusher to supply them with their daily chemical joy.
Artificial confidence.
Like all junkies, they follow the mantra - misery loves company' so they must gather into junky-clans, in junky enclaves - opium dens - to accentuate the 'high'...maaaaaaan.

If left to their own contrivances, they are miser-able, creatures.
Chanting me-me-me.....sounds hollow if there's nobody around to hear you self-affirming your 'joy and power'.

Modern man has become so detached from nature - his own essence - and engulfed within his own noetic constructs - perceiving them from within their artificial urban fabrications - that he forgets the basic animal impulse to trust in its own senses and to act without knowing the outcome of its own choices - adjusting them after-the-fact.
Modern man perceives an occult consciousness behind and within everything, because that's where he wishes it to remain. He is unable to endure the prospect of his choices being determined by unconscious forces with no intent and no purpose; even his pains, the evils that he experiences, must be ascribed to an intentional agency, so as to not be burdened with the responsibility of acting and adjusting - the uncertainty of trial and error; the modern desperately insists that the unknown is known, by someone, or something, even if it is not himself; he needs a motive to accuse for his suffering, so as to remain a victim of something and someone other than himself.

The natural method, adopted by science, is beyond his ability to comprehend or to accept.
He needs a conciousness, an intent to reside in all that he experiences.

Causality terrifies him, if there is no conspicuous or inconspicuous intent behind it all.
Chaos, must be defined as 'complexity - implying an occult order, underlying existence; man needs everything to be guided by a reason, a purpose.
The alternative is beyond his spiritual constitution; he will freeze in his tracks, or never rise from bed, if he were to internalize an alternative. He would rather die....because then that would be a certainty he could predict.

An adjustment to the ancient maxim ΜΕΤΡΟΝ ΑΡΙΣΤΟΝ: 'Everything in Moderation'.
Less is more.
Less possibilities/probabilities translates to less variables; less variables translates to less stress; less stress translates to less worries and cares; less worries and cares translates to freedom and well-being.  

In all areas of human interest, 'less is more'.

Men write in prose not only to hide their vanity behind metaphors, or to seduce lost soul into their linguistic cobwebs, but most of all in an effort to not scare away those that can comfort them, in their unendurable isolation of individuality; they write, covering the fragile surface of their ego with mysterious symbols, so that they no longer see their reflection.

Brevity pulls the other closer, like a whisper; verbosity pushes the other away, like a scream.
What is unclear is left to the imagination of the listener; seducing with possibilities the listener completes using his or her own desires.

When one learns to be alone, he suddenly becomes attractive to those who cannot endure loneliness.
When one desires to be alone, he is confronted with those who never came close when he was in need of company.  

Power is a gravitational force.
It unintentionally pulls that which is of lower mass, assimilating into itself what lacked the momentum to resist it.

Like a magnet, it is a product of symmetrical alignment creating a magnetic aura.
Success increases its field of effect. Each assimilation adding to its mass.

The herd has been outsourcing its judgements for ages.
Only difference is that in this age, and with all the data sources available to them, they also declare themselves fee-thinkers and are convinced that they do not belong to any herd.

test - If the first impulse is to turn towards the herd, seeking guidance, not towards the world, you're definitely part of the hive-mind.
If you've lost all trust in your senses, and confidence in your judgement, you are part of the hive-mind.
If you can't utter a single opinion without dropping the name of a famous source, you are part of the hive-mind.
If mentors are verbatim adopted as sources of 'truth', and not used as supportive components for your own opinions, you are part of the hive-mind.
If for all unverifiable opinions, based on higher probabilities, your only option is that the 'majority' thinks so, you are part of the hive-mind.

Deferring to authorities is a sign of emasculation.

Every age has its intellectual and moral authorities.
Every age has 'experts'.
And every age has its herds.

Mencken, H.L. wrote:
The Renaissance, it seems to me, is easily and sufficiently explained by the fact that the Black Death, raging from 1334 to 1351, exterminated such huge masses of the European proletariat that the average intelligence and enterprise of the race were greatly lifted, and that this purged and improved society suddenly functioned splendidly because it was no longer hobbled from below. For a thousand years the population of Europe had been steadily increasing, and its best men had been forced, in consequence, to devote themselves to the wasteful business of politics – the grabbing of new territories, the opening of markets, the policing of the proletariat. Their ability thus had no opportunity to function in a dignified and splendid manner; they were condemned to such dull, degrading tasks as harass United States Senators, generals in the Army, Tammany bosses, college presidents and captains of industry. Then, like a bolt from the blue, came the Black Death. In less than twenty years it reduced the population of Europe by at least 50% – and yet it left substantially all of the wealth of Europe untouched. More, it killed its millions selectively; the death-rate among the upper classes, as every Sunday-school scholar reading Decameron of Boccaccio knows, was immensely less than the death-rate among the submerged. The net result was that Europe emerged from the pandemic with the old pressure of population relieved, all the worst problems of politics in abeyance, plenty of money, and newly-found leisure. The best brains of the time, thusly suddenly emancipated, began to function freely and magnificently. There ensued what we call the Renaissance.
Every rebirth and revival necessitates the leaving behind of all the accumulate waste of the past; selectively propagating what is essential to survival, and to our sense of distinct identity within the fluctuating multiplicity of existence.
Man produces pollution in the course of his ceaseless interventions upon natural order; along with the intended unintended collateral by-products are also produced.
This coming Dark Age is an opportunity to rid European man of its accumulated genetic and memetic garbage. We must consider it more of an opportunity than a threat, by taking our own personal interests out of our thinking; placing them as an afterthought and not a controlling motive; an opportunity no different than any other; entailing both risks and costs, and with uncertain benefits.
When “opportunity knocks” you either answer the door or you lose the option.

A silver lining....
A burning house collapses taking with it all the foreign inhabitants that has infiltrated its structure.
Fire is cleansing.A kind of gratification in the one watching his home burn and collapse is found in knowing that the fire started by a vermin nibbling at the electric wiring.

In tragedy a new beginning will correct errors made during the building of the original.
A structure clean and fresh - more resistant to vermin.
