Im aware of the many things to read and things to watch on the forums.
however, if you had one single book, chapter, video, or audio to share , of the upmost quality and informativness. what would that be. please share.  I love researching everything I can, with that said from all your info select somethi g that has influenced you greatly or broadened your mind in such a way that if you literally could post only one piece of material this would be it.  

History is far greater than any single book or video can shed light on, yet still I ask for your top 1-5 must read/see/hear literatures/info.

@3eon that transhuman video is scary, man has probably always sought a remedy to mortality, so evolution mixed with technology doesnt come as a shock. What is shocking is the speed in which our tech is evolving. In the far past learning how to make stronger metals and such was the leaps and bounds of their time, yet here in my lifetime we have computers in our pockets when a  generatiions ago this was fantasy.

@Kvasir - still reading the unibomber manifesto but So far I do like the part

"25. The moral code of our society is so demanding that no one can think, feel and act in a completely moral way. For example, we are not supposed to hate anyone, yet almost everyone hates somebody at some time or other, whether he admits it to himself or not. Some people are so highly socialized that the attempt to think, feel and act morally imposes a severe burden on them. In order to avoid feelings of guilt, they continually have to deceive themselves about their own motives and find moral explanations for feelings and actions that in reality have a non-moral origin. We use the term "oversocialized" to describe such people. [2]"

Nothing can really be separated from the cumalative processes which relate to understanding; but if relating to initiation, a fundament of amazement and change and re-directing will etc.

Music (from youth shaping my taste and worldview): Carl Orff's composition of Carmina Burana
Book (conscious initiation into philosophy when a teen): Baltasar Gracián's El Criticon
Movie (having had such an impact when still a teen and shaped my path): The Savior (1998)
Hero (from childhood I wanted to live up to him [next to Hitler]): Alexander the Great

Dance (specifically relating to this video as intitiation of interest):




etc.

Either, for navigating a physical or social wilderness, whichever is appropriate.

I have the time to read all the works of philosophy. However I do enjoy summarized brief introductions this youtube has many philosophers on his playlist. If I was to refer any one read to anyone it would be "the feminisation of mankind" by Satyr. I was in progress of "waking up" and after reading fem of man Something in me changed. It was like , i got it. My father sent me fem of man when I was in my early 20s, and I didnt grasp it at all. Bored one night I decided to re-read it. (age 30). Unfortunately I prove that a certain level of maturity was needed to grasp the philosophy. Some of you are in your early 20s and it blows me away that you all are into this info, its rare, good for you guys:girls. So yes if I had one post to put on here it would be "The feminisation of mankind". Since most of you have read that, here is the youtube summary of many philosophers if your looking for a quick glance at their thoughts without reading all their books.

Anyone who want's to upload their mind into a computer chip is a retard of epic proportions. Many years ago I had an encounter with one of these specimens, and the conversation was very informative. They are very assertive and knowledgeable and it is difficult to win the conversation if you debate them.

From Schopenhauer, to Nietzsche, then to Heidegger, and then Evola, and then...branch out.

I have had that book for almost 10 years, I used to "study" it like an idiot when I was 15-16. ^ 48 laws of power, it has some good life lessons, but still life is not that simple. People will most of the time understand your actions the wrong way.
