Memetic Disease  Empty
PostSubject: Memetic Disease Memetic Disease  EmptyThu Sep 15, 2016 7:20 pm

This is a more concise, hopefully, list of symptoms, defining and describing the memetic dis-ease Nihilism, and its most current manifestation Modernity.
This is to be sued in addition to [You must be registered and logged in to see this link.] and [You must be registered and logged in to see this link.].
A quick reference guide, as ordered and concise as I can manage.

It will be added to as different symptoms and viral strains emerge, or I become aware of them.

First some basic definitions.

Gene: data/memory, simplified/generalized converted to bio-code, to direct organic development and functionality, and passed on to offspring through single-cell reproduction (mitosis) and synthesis via heterosexual copulation.
In the process of reproduction, division, synthesis, mutations arise due to the ongoing (inter)action with patterned and non-patterned energies.
Mutations become the the foundation of what we know as evolution. Those that add to the genetic fitness of the product, those that subtract and those that have no effect, or remain dormant, until triggered by environmental conditions, and further mutations, and/or (inter)activities.

Meme: projection of genetic reproduction - mind emerging out of body with the development of a nervous system.
Brain - nervous system hub, nexus, or the connector of mind/body. The nervous system converts sensual stimuli to neural pulse, transmitted throughout the nervous system, and later processed in the brain.
In the brain neural datas is collected from external (through sense organs), and from internal sources (cellular inter-activities, perceived as sensations, intuitions etc.). There, they are reduced to abstractions - simplified/generalized.
These I also call noumena, to relate to phenomena (apparent, present/presence).  

External sources require a medium, unlike internal sources which transmit the data directly through the nervous system.
A medium, such as atmosphere (air), light, or directly through contact where attraction/repulsion is perceived as heat, pressure, solidity, texture...etc.
Medium (inter)acts with phenomenon, as congruity of patterns, attracting/repulsing each other - affecting.
Medium is a congruity of patterns not a singular pattern.
Affectation is, therefore, how this congruity changes by its (inter)action with phenomenon, which is also a congruity of patterns.
(Inter)Action means how these congruities relate - repulse/attract, and through this relating are changed by fragmenting the congruity, or by altering the oscillation/vibration of one, or more patterns participating in the congruity.
The affected medium then (inter)acts with sense organs, skin being one of them - the (inter)action, or the repulsion/attraction dynamics, are translated/interpreted into neural pulses, a form the body can process.
I've explained my theory on this in my thesis [You must be registered and logged in to see this link.].

Pattern: range of repeating predictable, consistent, oscillation/vibration.
Rate of vibration establishes how the mind will translate/interpret phenomenon - as matter  (slow in relation to perceiving mind) or energy (fast in relation to perceiving mind).
Organism becomes the standard, against which phenomena are measured/evaluated and translated/interpreted.
Organism is, itself, a congruity of multiple pattern that have balanced out their repulsion, or disharmony, to archive ephemeral and imperfect unity - we call this unity of patterned behavior, because it manifests in mind/body probabilities - ordering.
Behavior in the physical is called appearance: organism's arrangement, and organ proportionality, is determined, over time, by environment and specialization.
Sex being reproductive specialization.
Beauty is a reference to the appreciation of this symmetry of organs, and how they are proportionally arranged.  
In the mental, the nervous system, it is called psychology.
How the brain is arranged, its sections, each specializing in processing and transmitting different sources of data, is what becomes intelligence and is expressed as personality.
Personality = data/memories transmitted to brain, through nervous network, of all cellular (inter)activity - then engaging data streaming into brain from sense data.
Impact is what then, produces anxiety/stress.  
Organ hierarchies, their proportions and strengths/weaknesses, determines personality - psychology. It also determines body chemistry, taste, preference, sexual disposition etc.
Character = partial expression of personality/psychology - repression/control of dispositions.
This, over time, becomes entrenched as automatic - social identity (civility/ culture/politeness/attitude).
What has been repressed and, in time, forgotten, emerges as dreams, psychosis, sexual fetish etc.    


Wikipedia wrote:
A virus is a small infectious agent that replicates only inside the living cells of other organisms. Viruses can infect all types of life forms, from animals and plants to microorganisms, including bacteria and archaea.
While not inside an infected cell or in the process of infecting a cell, viruses exist in the form of independent particles. These viral particles, also known as virions, consist of two or three parts: (i) the genetic material made from either DNA or RNA, long molecules that carry genetic information; (ii) a protein coat, called the capsid, which surrounds and protects the genetic material; and in some cases (iii) an envelope of lipids that surrounds the protein coat when they are outside a cell. The shapes of these virus particles range from simple helical and icosahedral forms for some virus species to more complex structures for others. Most virus species have virions that are too small to be seen with an optical microscope. The average virion is about one one-hundredth the size of the average bacterium.

The origins of viruses in the evolutionary history of life are unclear: some may have evolved from plasmids—pieces of DNA that can move between cells—while others may have evolved from bacteria. In evolution, viruses are an important means of horizontal gene transfer, which increases genetic diversity.[7] Viruses are considered by some to be a life form, because they carry genetic material, reproduce, and evolve through natural selection. However they lack key characteristics (such as cell structure) that are generally considered necessary to count as life. Because they possess some but not all such qualities, viruses have been described as "organisms at the edge of life",[8] and as replicators.[9]

Viruses spread in many ways; viruses in plants are often transmitted from plant to plant by insects that feed on plant sap, such as aphids; viruses in animals can be carried by blood-sucking insects. These disease-bearing organisms are known as vectors. Influenza viruses are spread by coughing and sneezing. Norovirus and rotavirus, common causes of viral gastroenteritis, are transmitted by the faecal–oral route and are passed from person to person by contact, entering the body in food or water. HIV is one of several viruses transmitted through sexual contact and by exposure to infected blood. The range of host cells that a virus can infect is called its "host range". This can be narrow, meaning a virus is capable of infecting few species, or broad, meaning it is capable of infecting many.[10]

Viral infections in animals provoke an immune response that usually eliminates the infecting virus. Immune responses can also be produced by vaccines, which confer an artificially acquired immunity to the specific viral infection. However, some viruses including those that cause AIDS and viral hepatitis evade these immune responses and result in chronic infections. Antibiotics have no effect on viruses, but several antiviral drugs have been developed.

Memetic Virus  
Memes being extensions of genes, and viruses infecting the cell extend to viruses that infect the mind.
A memetic virus transmits itself using symbols/words - language.
They can lie dormant, in "crystalline form" in books or as engravings. The host must be receptive - trained in the particular meaning of words/symbols - it must know the semiology the language.

Nihilistic virus "hijacks" the host's mind, and then inverts its perceptions, or warps its understanding.
Like all viruses they thrive in overpopulated, spaces, such as the ones in our current world, which have made Nihilistic viral strains such as Judaism, and its mutations of Christianity/Islam, and then Marxism, Humanism etc.- in the west...and ni the east Buddhism.
A virus suppresses the organisms autoimmune system - memtically this means it suppresses its self-awareness, warping, in turn its awareness of world.
this si often accompanied by a numbing sense of pleasure, as the mind gradually detaches from reality.
A virus is known to hide itself, often mimicking the host' cells, and also numbing it, to remain undetected, as it gradually takes over the organisms' processes and redirects them....gradually killing the host.
An autoimmune (re)action, if the virus becomes detected, is experienced as fever, as the body raises its temperature to kill the virus - memetically this is war.
Nihilistic viruses prefer peace, and calm - they are insidious.
They prefer seduction to conflict, and politics to violence.
More symptoms will be explored below.

Virus gradually and methodically detaches organism from its surroundings - confusion, paradoxes, anxiety increase.
This is the first step of viral redirection - its hijacking of the host's processes - Will.

Organism experienced a sense of euphoria, as the brain is flooded with biochemicals, triggered by the virus - inebriation.

Detachment form world is the detachment of noumenon from phenomenon, when the link (word/symbol) is redirected back towards the mind - solipsism.
Detachment is either partial, or complete - zombification.
The latter dependent no an external protective system, otherwise a quick and certain end follows.


Organism experiences a sense of confusion, becoming increasingly dependent on others to orient itself, to function, to think.
Validation, now, becomes a matter of quantities, or how many minds are in agreement, in communion, validating and supporting each other - hospital sick ward.
Referencing phenomenon is undesirable - a cold, harsh world outside the sanitarium walls.
hospital ward acquires its own internal social dynamics - its own rhythms, its own time/space dimensions. In there, all changes - electric lighting, feeding times, medication times, washing times, exercise times - institutionalization.

What health you enter the ward with, you quickly lose in the virus den.


Symbolically it begins to confuse world for humanity, and philosophy for politics.
Part of existence replacing existence itself.  
Shrinking of conceptual reality - its perceptual-event-horizon.

Once a certain level of detachment is achieved virus inserts words like "equality", changes/warps words like "morality", "meaning", "god" etc. as universal absolutes.
All words take on a humanistic meaning, or whatever meaning satisfies viral reproductive needs, referring back to the brain's noetic abstraction - where vague simplification/generalization constructs artificial absolutes, like 1/0, good/bad.
Original meaning of the symbols, words, is lost, or gradually replaced by the viruses injections, its warping.    


With no world beyond the walls of social conventions, institutional rules and circadian rhythms, the modern is left with humanity as his only acceptable standard.
His "truths", his subjectivity, only measurable against those of other human minds.
The criterion of validation not phenomenon and survival, the cost/benefit of reality, but pleasure, popularity, the cost/benefit of social hierarchies, fame/fortune.
Validation now quantified by the amount of minds supporting his subjectivity, his preferred reality.
Increasing their numbers constitutes an increase of his power, his will's range of attraction/repulsion effect.
To be effective he must be convincing, seductive; a talented spin-doctor, a reader of psychology to exploit and manipulate.
If he lacks such inherited talent he seeks insight through others, through the stars, or any psychological manual.
He reads man, but in his mind he is reading world....because humanity = world, world = humanity.
[[You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]]      


Detachment form reality reaches a psychosis when the organism, in order to preserve its noetic ideology, begins to reject its own sensual awareness - partially and selectively, at first.
Divergence is dismissed as "superficial" when it threatens its subjective, noetic internal "alternate reality".
So, we get the compartmentalized, selective application of "reasoning", and "emoting", shifting form one to the other as circumstances demand.

PostSubject: Narcissism Memetic Disease  EmptyThu Sep 15, 2016 7:58 pm

restricted access.


Narcissism is a natural byproduct of the viral infection - Nihilism.

It can have two sources:

1} Increasing sheltering gives the organism a false sense of self-worth.
Having never experienced need/suffering beyond its ability to cope, to tolerate, it begins feeling powerful, indestructible.
Systemic order assures it with predictable pleasure rewards, cultivating a sense of entitlement.

2} Having experienced a devastating, traumatic brush with need/suffering, the mind retreats from  world that causes it dis-stress.
It flees into ego, exploring the safety and certainty of self.  


Detaching from the corrective force of reality, or flux - (inter)acting patterns indifferent to the well-being of the subjective observer, the organism, gradually builds a false arrogance - ego inflates with each passing moment in space/time where humbling is evaded.

The mind begins to build a grandiose sense of self, where it can accomplish anything, at any time.
Within a world, defined as humanity, there is no great, cost that cannot be corrected.
The mind can interpret events in any way it desires, because its perspective is protected from reality's harsh indifference.
Behavioral rules ensure no rude awakening is experienced.

Absence of absolutes, means, that even this is not a perfect setup.
At best costs are reduced but not avoided, postponed but not erased.
Postponed costs accumulate, in time, and no degree of protective institutionalization sheltering will be enough.    


Detachment forces the mind into a state of schizophrenia, [[You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]].
Moderns must lie, to themselves and then to those they depend upon to preserve their delusions.
They must live in a state of half-wakefulness, to survive an objective world they deny, preferring their subjective private world.

To preserve self within a world that denies their verbal magic, their identification with ideals, their nullification of reality, the modern has to divide himself, into parts - compartmentalizing his abstractions so as to apply different rules to them.
Mental fragmentation satisfies the needs of the body, to survive within an indifferent harsh world in flux, and the needs of the mind to escape into its fantasies, its ideological realities, its esoteric "perfect" order.   


nihilists, narcissists, cannot help but lie, pretend, hide....duplicity is how they divide personae from character, choosing character to bury an inherited personae (past/nature) beneath pretenses, clothing, masks, words spoken from script, or connected in word-associations demanding a profound, serious, analysis. They identify with their act, their chosen identity, their caricature.
How could they not when the ideal is shattered by the real?
He peers into himself, because he dares not see himself reflected in through others - he chooses which others mirror his own private image, lend it credence, support it, and in turn he reciprocates, hiding a secret superiority: his lie is not the same as their truth.
When they reflect his image back, it is because it is true, when he reciprocated, as a necessary part of inter-subjectivity, he does not believe in their lie - he feels above them, though he does not show it.
Instead his pretence become more convincing, hyperbolic, and this gives the narcissist his "charm" in the mind of the other - his likability.  


An insignificant bacterium, gains power in its inclusion into a group of myriads of bacteria.
Then, if it makes an organism sneeze, it takes full responsibility, for the (re)action - it makes itself the singular bacterium that can produce such (re)actions.
But when the organism employs counter-measures to deal with the infection, it returns back to its lowly place, as but an insignificant bacterium, one of many.  


Narcissist, as a manifestation of Nihilistic Modernity, cannot depend on world/reality, to give him what he covets.
Detachment form reality is, for him, a method of ensuring a positive return.
Because, for him, "world" means "humanity", he repeats what he most craves to be identified as, so the with repetition the others reflect back what he needs.
Unable to produce the desired (re)action with his actions he repeats the words he wishes to be identified with, hoping that with repetition he can implant a possibility, within simpler, needy, minds.
He tells others what he wishes to be identified as, because he cannot, with thinking/behaviour produce this judgment.
He explains this as their "problem", their inability to appreciate him.
His positions being entirely noetic, there is no way for him to bring them down to a level , even a simpleton can understand, therefore his intended audience are those prone to more abstract thinking.
With them, he finds a ready and willing audience, tickling their sense of superiority, based on a confusion between knowing and understanding, and on their sense of social status, based on specialised roles, but, with them, he also finds the greatest resistance, having nothing to offer but abstract theory.
He has a greater effect maong the base, those he considers himself superior to, those that cannot fully comprehend his noetic abstractions, without him reducing them to emotions, and sexuality.
There he finds himself feeling above them, feeding into his delusion, and also himself reflected back.

PostSubject: Verbal Dissonance Memetic Disease  EmptyThu Sep 15, 2016 8:17 pm

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


Due to the essence of a memetic virus, such as nihilism, its first observable symptoms will be linguistic dissonance - a disassociation of mind from world, through symbols, will slowly develop a randomness.
Sentence structures freed from time/space, (linear time = towards increasing randomness), or causality (cause/effect = flipped to effect/cause), will acquire a randomness only limited by linguistic formality, so as to ensure infectiousness (destroying linguistic structure will render the virus impotent).
The limiting factor of world as causality, will no longer matter as the brain detached, under the inebriating effects of nihilism.
In fact detachment from the restricting effects of phenomena is exactly what satisfies the virus's reproductive requirements.    

The only motive now is to trigger pleasure centers in the brain, where the words are redirected. This becomes the word's new focus, its objective.


[Words]Having been "liberated" from their original utility as representative neural symbols, connecting mind to world or noumena to phenomena (memetic version of the medium used by the sense organs), words aquire a msytical, magical, power.
This is how they become the first sentence in the Abrahamic manual...

Scripture - John 1 wrote:
1-2 The Word was first,
the Word present to God,
   God present to the Word.
The Word was God,
   in readiness for God from day one.
3-5 Everything was created through him;
   nothing—not one thing!—
   came into being without him.
What came into existence was Life,
   and the Life was Light to live by.
The Life-Light blazed out of the darkness;
   the darkness couldn’t put it out.

Later it is secularized but retains its divine qualities, in such metaphors as "humanity", "equality", "love"...
Any "positive" word/symbol can be recruited to fit into this role. Nihilism is a memetic virus that lives and dies in language, in symbols, in words.
Without words/symbols it has no existence - it is abstract, noetic, theory, ideology attempting to be externalized, to produce a tangible presence/appearance.
As is typical of Nihilism inversion is its basic characteristic - in this case meme does not emerge out of gene, it is not an extension of it, but the reverse.
It must make the concepts it wishes to replace social artifices,  because ti is, at its most powerful, a social artifice - a shared noumenon.
Converting race, sex, (to name a couple) into social constructs, it detaches them from their connections to world (destroys their meaning), and can then replace them with more pleasing connections (imagery, ideas, feelings, alternative words/symbols...etc.).  

The virus may have began by using coercion, forceful education, conversions, training, but, in time, it developed more insidious forms of infection - manipulating human frailty, ego, emotions.
Word "truth" has also become divine, associated with what feels good, what is pleasing, what benefits the organism, what offers hope, what can be corrected, evaded, changed.
Change is associated with "better" - escaping the disappointing present/presence, apparence - a perpetual fleeing, falling away.

Within the paradigm of nihilism, change is the essence of god, and god is good....therefore change is salvation from world.


Due to the limitations of words, determining the memetic virus' range of effect, its power remains trapped within human limits. It has no effect outside human minds, unless it is converted into mathematical code producing copies of human organs and processes - techniques/technologies.
For a Nihilist, taken over by the dis-ease world of man means cosmos.
To compensate for this limitation he anthopomoprophizes world, seeing himself everywhere - extending, noetically, the range of his symbolic power.
Most evident in its primitive form, Abrahamic religion, this technique converts cosmos to a copy of man, expanding the power of his symbolism into infinity.
Animals, inanimate mater, energy, all acquires a human soul, a human essence,; it can be swayed, reasoned with, convinced, coerced.  
Unlike science, which is an extension of philosophy, the Moderns covers the uni-verse with a sheen of his own consciousness, reflecting back to him his own desires, morals, preferences, but also fears.


Moderns as the perpetually current, most up-dated, variant of Nihilism, live in a world of code.
Words, symbols protect him, like a nopetic womb, from a world beyond, that does not bend, so easily to their will's magical verbal incantations; their shared prayers, their declarations.
Symbols, released from their original utility as neurological representations (interpretations, symbolization) connecting noumenon with phenomenon, attempting to understand, by finding meaning in how patterns relate, so as to help the organism adapt, hare now ends in themselves, when survival is almost guaranteed, and all that remains is how to occupy one's time, or how to fit into the communal protective cocoon.
words converted from philosophical tools, scientific tools, to political ploys and./or entertainment toys (hedonism).  

Lucidity, precision, ceases to matter when entertaining one's self is best served by vagueness - the clouded mind of the addict, the mind immersed in fantasy (artificial reality). Precision, lucidity, light, would expose the artificiality, the cracks in the copy - in the twilight, the semi-dark shadows blur outlines, everything merges, everything becomes hazy, vague...the mind forgiving imperfections, when it chooses to focus on imagined perfection, or to accentuate a flaw so as to dismiss.
Under such conditions seances can be performed, the occult attains plausibility.
The eye undisturbed by phenomena, other senses take over: sound, touch. Everything can be processes in the brain as fantasy.
Imagination minus precedent (past/nature) and appearance/presence (empiricism), is fantasy.
Fantasy mixes and mingles abstractions in novel, pleasing, terrifying forms, meaningless outside the mind, but holding sway over its most private and primitive processes.


In the dark, at night, is when the esoteric stimuli, dominate over the exoteric stimuli: data processed in brain comes from external phenomena, via the senses, and from internal sources via the nervous system - cells (inter)acting transmitting data continuous to the brain, whereas at night, particularly when the brain sleep,s data from external sources stops, or diminishes to insignificance - dropping out of consciousness.
The mind is now given over to the esoteric, to memories, to internal processes.
With no phenomenon to limit them, cellular data must adopt imagery from sensual memory to become a concept, an abstraction, otherwise they remain sensation, unconscious, intuition, feeling.
Dreaming is this esoteric data conceptualized by selectively adopting a phenomenal image. In dream time/space are malleable, cause/effect interchangeable....
Sleeping is what nihilism is - a state of narcosis. Eyes wide shut.
Moderns see, but they do not recognize, they reject what they see, preferring their own dreams, their fantasies.

Nihilism's inverting of reality is an inversion of causality.
Sheltered from the consequences of his detachment, the Modern is free to dream, to surrender to his own fantasies, where all is malleable, subject to his will's give himself to subjectivity, ignoring the objective world.
He is a somnambulist...a zombie, shuffling, sleep-walking, half-awake, half-aware...reality and fantasy blurred, unable to be distinguished.

His compromise is made towards his fellow sleepers, to prevent them from awakening him. In turn he agrees not to disturb their sleep - inter-subjectivity, the social code, Golden Rule...secularized as political correctness: dare not shatter the other's delusion, his arrogance, his self-esteem built on false premises [[You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]].      


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

Because letters, in succession, forming words in succession, forming sentences, in succession forming concepts...the word is to the meme what the genome is to the gene.

Organism is the concept formed by the genetic code.
modern feels like a god, using words, to form a concept that only exists in his brain as an abstraction.
He wishes to realize it by spreading it to other minds, or to convert it into mathematical/geometric code, and externalize it.
He dreams of converting his subjectivity, his noumenon, into an objective real phenomenon. He does not want to adapt to the world, but to adapt world to him.
But, to do so he must know, accept and understand world, which he is detached from, and refuses to engage, because this would destroy his already establishes esoteric reality.
His "power" remains castrated, impotent, it';s only range of effect being the range of effect of humans, as potential converts, and of his converts, infected with the same dis-ease.
He is prone to despair, requiring frequent external chemical, sonar, inebriation to deal with this fact - which he intuits and never brings into focus.
If, and when, another exposes him to it, he reacts violently, accuses the other of fabrication, of intent: projecting his own guilt upon other, his self-hatred as the hatred of others, his low self-esteem as the other's.
Compensated for with hyperbolic inflation of self-esteem - he exaggerates self, so as not be shattered, deflated, so as not to implode from the pressure of a cruel relentless world in flux.


If we study the nature and the methodology of a virus infecting a biological emergent unity, an organism, we can gain insight into the working of its memetic extension, and counterpart.
A memetic virus enters the organism, via its weakest, most vulnerable spot. It infects the feeblest member of a group.
once inside, it begins to hide, imitating the cells of the host, to remain undetected, and to prevent triggering the organism's defences.
In other words, it plagiarizes, copies, and pretends to be a member of the body, another cell.
Undetected virion starts to change the cells around it, those ti comes in contact with, injecting them with its code, its simple viral memories - past/nature.
It begins converting the host into itself, piece by piece, cell by cell, destroying what it cannot convert.
The organism remains oblivious to this until the virus has infected enough cells to begin having a conscious effect.  By that stage the organism can do nothing but fight off the virus.
Memetically, the virus inserts itself within the mind's understanding in the form of words, triggering specific images, feelings, meanings (meaning = relationships). It masks itself as rational, benefiting the organism, as logical, as useful, as helpful (benevolent).
Slowly it infects other words, warping the organism's interpretations of reality, its understanding of world.
By the time the organism becomes aware of it, if it ever does, it can only fight it off - seek and destroy.
Best medicine is preventative.
With more sophisticated, insidious, viruses, the organism never realizes it is converted into a mindless zombie, or is being taken over by a memetic dis-ease.
Memetic viruses attack the very center of processing, the brain, and this affects the manifested mind. they attack consciousness, which is not the case with genetic viruses that begin by attacking the body. An organism may sense, in the early stages, of something being wrong, but as the virus slowly takes over the brain, it remains clueless of its own dis-ease.


There is nothing more disarming, to a Nihilist, than defining words.
He will avoid it, when he can, and when he cannot his definition will be as vague as possible - clouding rather than clarifying.
The reason is, that his "magic" is dependent no an emotional, sensational, factor, illumination would destroy.

Meaning: relationship of patterns.
Understanding: finding patterns in the patterns, or in the data, the knowledge.

Nihilism is anti-real, anti-nature, it cannot and will not refer nor defer to phenomena, but only to emotions, sensations, vague feelings, ambiguity that can be interpreted according to each individual's private desires, needs, ideals - exploited and manipulated.
Referring to external phenomena, and how they relate, would make his target audience shrink, to a few, and it would expose his own motives.
Nihilists need large audiences, masses of followers, of believers, of fellow subjectivists, to create inter-subjective webs, matrices of minds, with them as the nexus (brain), or as willing cogs in the web, finding safety in numbers, finding self-esteem in being a useful minion a supportive piece of the puzzle.
Placing the standard outside mind, would not only make nihilism void of meaning, denying the masses what they require to exist, but it would also make it accessible to all, making him, as nexus (priest), worthless.

Words have to remain abstract, with an air of pseudo-intellectual insinuation, or they have to be made totally meaningless, awaiting each individual's personal input, to give them meaning - either/or, or the masculine/feminine Nihilistic pole.

PostSubject: Binary Logic Memetic Disease  EmptyThu Sep 15, 2016 8:41 pm


In it most primitive form the virus is characterized by polar opposite, binary logic, dualism - taken literally, because words are truth, and magical, and not art, representational, approximations.
In time it develops into good/bad, and then into good/evil, its divine spiritual representation.
Abrahamic Nihilistic religions are founded upon this simplistic either/or '"logic".
two absolutes are placed on the poles, of the cocoon, within which nihilistic paradigm expands to encompass the entire mind's understanding - all this is noetic, and it has no meaning outside the brain, or the nervous system.

In math it becomes the 1/0, in geometry the point, in space time, the here, the now, and the non-point.
Now the mind can trace lines connecting noetic static points  used to orient mind abstractly.


Binary thinking is the product of a simple neurological mechanism - on/off.
On = neural pulse flowing through neuron or neural cluster....Off = no neural pulse flowing.
Division of matter & energy, again, is one of rate of oscillation/vibration - pattern's speed or repetition.

The virus converts this into its confusions, where the symbol/word is given a literal meaning, rather than a figurative/artistic one.
Every pattern becomes a source of epiphany.
Rarity, or connections between patterns not previously perceived become a spiritual awakening.

Habituation plays the role of normality.
When new neurons are triggered the organism experiences this rarity, this unusual, to it, stimulation, as a cosmic event -  divine epiphany.
The same experience can be artificially produced, using drugs, alcohol, and is also part of the moment of sexual release (orgasm) where the brains neurons trigger cascading effects.  
Music is also a external source of such stimulation, or any medium that can stimulate the parts of the brain not usually engaged, and in sequenced not usually experienced - novelty.


Nihilism:{original meaning, or meaning within nihilistic paradigms, Nihilism defined nihilistically}: man demands of world to give him meaning, purpose, god, morality (rule of conduct/behavior} - man demands, as any child with a sense of entitlement, to be given what he needs.
When world denies him this demand he accuses it of being nil- he nullifies it.
So, for the modern nihilism means the absence of universal absolute meaning, purpose, morality, and God, universal consciousness love, humanism.
His human constructs are absent form world, because world is indifferent to human artifices, needs, desires, hopes, and demands.
Ergo, Nihilism itself is defined within nihilistic paradigms. The positive of cosmos as making life possible, is converted to a negative because it lacks additional benefits.
This is the primary inversion of Nihilism/Modernity, expressed in Abrahamic spirituality, which then also inverts nature's hierarchies, and cause/effect sequences, and with them linguistic syntax, sentence structure (conceptual structure - linear time/space expressed as causality), word definitions etc.
All is noetically (theoretically) flipped on its head - inverted.    

Nihilism binary logic, taken literally, create a noetic space/time characterized by two poles...positive/negative, given alternate names/symbols.

This produces two distinct forms of [You must be registered and logged in to see this link.] [restricted]...

Positive Nihilism: {feminine}
Duplicitous nihilism has to deal with its own contradictions between ideal/real or words/actions, by inventing/implying magical realm, in some beyond, or some coming future (paradise/utopia), or a secret, hidden realm where his ideals exist, as they do in his head.
What is absent from world, such as absolute meaning, god, order, meaning, is projected a ideal.
Positive Nihilists are romantic idealists - or delusional charlatans, selling empty words as universal truths - unable to provide proof, or to construct a convincing argument, compensating with insinuations, vagueness, obfuscation, emotionally positive word associations, triggering positive reactions in the skeptical mind of others.
With no phenomenon to refer to, they use phenomenon as a premise to imply a hidden esoteric more real reality...within, underneath, hidden and only to be accessed noetically, suing fantasy and guided by positive thoughts, positive emotions, a positive attitude - faith.  

For this type of psychology the world is a womb, carrying a child he helps to bring to life (doula)
Alexandrianism: the "positive" nihilists knows the absolute is out there, and he is certain he will, one day, find it.
Contradiction of "positive" and "nihilist" characterizes his esoteric schizophrenia - his internal fragmentation, compartmentalization.
Faith, Hope that it exists, this absent absolute, thuogh if it did it would contradict existence.  
By far, the most popular, numerous, form of Nihilism within a Feminized Humanity.

Negative, or pure/authentic/honest Nihilism :
for this psychology the emptiness of world is the womb he will fertilize with his mental semen to bring into life his ideal.
He is the "god/pater" and uni-verse is his wife.
He creates universal meaning, purpose, god, morality, and all lessers will submit to his creative power.
They will be assimilated, in other words, into his private subjectivity - his esoteric world.
To bring this absolute into existence would contradict existence.
Patterns imploding into a singularity.  

A variant of this is the eternal negator of probability.
He will demanda leveling of space/time into an parity of possibility.
Replacing God with humanity, he will propose a voting compromise, where "mature" rational minds reach a consensus on what ought to be considered "true" and "real".

Maturity: a state of being where one has realized his own weaknesses and co-dependencies, has made too many investments in time and energies to begin anew, and is now defeated, willing to make any compromise that will preserve his subjectivity, his portfolio value in the socioeconomic market - cutting his losses.
His demand to reach ana agreement is a call to his self-maintenance within a vicious world. Preservation of his "rights" as thinking living human being, member of the divine entity, not God, but Humanity.
Leveling down hierarchies (superior/inferior) the Nihilist seeks a communal sacrifice to the lowest/common-denominator: uniformity in and through weakness/ignorance.  
An end to Flux, in the human form of conflict: peace on earth, an end to strife, to debate...all reduced to child's play, innocence where nobody gets hurt.
Majority of inferior minds urging the superior to come down to "earth" or to their level....mediocrity.
Deconstructing language is how they reduce all superior minds to gibberish....using the absence of absolutes.
Here a negative is used to support itself as a positive: since nobody is absolutely certain that the Abrahamic god does not exit, then ALL are equally ignorant, and so all need not fight over the issue.
Might is Right applied politically...but "might" now means multiplicity, the polis, majority might.

As a by-product of [You must be registered and logged in to see this link.] the dis-eases Modern exists in a universe of his own ghosts.
He feels himself reflected in every stone, hears his name being called out in a bird's song, every shape in nature is sending him messages, speaking to him.
Bicameral Madness - his inner voice is the voice of god.
A stone crack, just so, is smiling at him, a cloud shaped like a heart is loving him.
[You must be registered and logged in to see this link.] and, then paranoia.
Spirits of good/evil everywhere.


Symbols, words, become the fabric of his reality.
He is immersed in code.

Boundaries of his symbolic power, his word-magic.
He lives in his own head, the uni-verse is his mind - the verse is his own voice speaking, demanding, commanding, pleading.
When he laughs the world laughs with him, when he cries the world weeps.
Everything is about him on center stage.
His values are world values.
When man is World, in his mind, to become popular is to become universally omnipotent.
He is a god, if only he can convince others of it.

His subjectivity must become humanity's inter-subjectivity.


For the Nihilist "might means right" is authoritarianism - parental coercion, violence, and because world has become synonymous with humanity, he interest nature's might as totalitarianism.
The one speaking on nature's behalf the personification of the autocrat, not exposing world but imposing his perspective of world upon him.
Science is "innocent" only when it judges world outside the domain of humanity - where other rules apply.
"Right is Might: implying science's potential to convert understanding into control, knowledge into dominance, is translated by the Modern as another form of fascism.
He will only live in his own head - subjectivity, making compromises only out of necessity, to the protective shield of humanity - institutionalization {[You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]}.  
Such a fearful, fragile spirit, prefers negotiation, coming to adult compromises - pleading with humanity to agree to pretend.
For him agreeing there are no races, for example, makes it so. Agreeing there are no differences between the sexes, changes reality.
Humanity = reality
Inter-Subjective matrices encompassing a human, all too human world, excluding cosmos that remains indifferent to all human contrivances, desires, declarations, hopes.
If only humanity could make a rational compromises, and then the cosmos will change for the "better". A change in human attitude, will alter natural processes, nature itself.
"Might is Right" is adopted, only "might" now means humanity - the power of cooperative, herd, will.  
"Right is Might" is rejected because power is placed outside the human mind, demanding effort, understanding, a surpassing of inherited potentials - of a limiting/determining past/nature.
[You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]
Causality inverted and the individual authoritative Will converted to a multiplicity of wills, producing Will of Man.


[You must be registered and logged in to see this link.] is immersed in a world of his symbols, his noetic constructs.
He has either constructed them, using his imagination, or he's plagiarized them and then covered act by altering the symbols/words slightly, to retain plausible deniability, or just enough to gain power through association with the mind it has plagiarized.
It's every act is full of profound meaning, he is surrounded by symbols, codes only he can decipher - he is NEO walking on/in/through symbols, nobody else can see.
A Messiah bringing "good tidings" final "salvation" through the price of sacrifice, and suffering the pains of surrender.

When he scribbles on paper, it could be sold for millions to those who can fully appreciate the depth of meanings contained in his doodling.
When he walks his every movement a profound gesture, it would take years of devoted study to completely expose.

No second coming, he is the first - all that preceded were prophets of his coming, some false prophets unable or unwilling to fathom his emergence.
He gathers a small group of the initiated, to give him alms, and in return he soothes their pains, and inflates their egos.
Marketing himself has made him adept at marketing others.
Those who reject, who do not see, are infidels, the un-salvageable - sinners, damned.

He remains elusive, vague, as to imply complexity, depth, the above the median.
He speaks in riddles, forcing his followers to spend weeks meditating over his words - he posits problems he has solved, as initiation tests for the worthy.
Definition of words are as vague as the words themselves, finding power in insinuation, in implying without clarifying,; his magical power is in confusion, in ambiguity, requiring the other to insert his own fantasies, feelings, emotions.
Clarity, lucidity, light is his foe, thuogh he uses these words in Nihilistic contexts, redefining them to retain their utility.
Magic is his words.
Words are his magic.
{[You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]}.
Dancing around the necessity to connect words to phenomena, he impies a hidden phenomenal world, a "deeper" level of (inter)activity the apparent contradicts, requiring to be redefined, reinterpreted to harmonize ideal with real, the theoretical with the present, the act with the word.    


In his madness to evade past/nature, he forgets, denies, dismisses, buries - in his wake burial grounds of past he's trying to forget (lethe).
He covers the past with words, mountains of verbal vomit, mud, never erecting a monument.
He is forever leaving the past/nature behind, and looking forward, moving towards his destiny.
Every morning he's killed the man he was the day before - reborn, renewed, hope springs eternal.
there is no pattern, no behavior that forces him to repeat the same mistakes over and over - he has forgotten, each mistake is a new one, and not a mistake at all: growing with each repeated error in judgment. He runs on a treadmill, never learning from his past - because he never holds himself accountable - always the victim of other people, of circumstances; self-induced amnesia numbs the pain, and he repeats the same processes expecting a different outcome (insanity).
His "joy" is that of a simple creature - his innocence is his ignorance, his courage is his obliviousness, his virtue is his good intention.
He brings others down with him, he integrates them into his sanity to share his fate, and feels no guilt, because for him, he is offering a precious gift, measured by the standard of himself.
All was intended, planned, provoked. All is under his control.
He's buried his errors and now flees their ghosts.

Memetic Disease  Empty
PostSubject: Moral High-Ground Memetic Disease  EmptyFri Sep 16, 2016 12:59 pm


Nihilist claims the moral high, as a result of his victim status.
There, any indiscretions are excusable, as the working of a innocent victim wanting to protect himself from a violent, cruel world, represented by violent, cruel reasoning, and the men performing these "vile" activities as agencies of a despicable and unfair world.
As such, revisionist history, can escape notice, by tweeking (spin doctoring) the numbers, inventing facts, inflating events, infusing data with emotional mutations and appeals, but any attempt to return historical accounts to objective, reasonable, grounds, is accused of "revisionism" guided by hate - inversion, at work.

Perpetual victimhood gives the Modern Nihilist the moral advantage, and he exploits it by making every topic a moral one, an ethical dilemma.

A "white lie" is harmless when pain and suffering is prevented.
Race and sex fall prey to this moral imperative - the social rule, to pretend, to support a lie that increases social harmony: the illusion in text in the American constitution...

Jefferson, Thomas wrote:
We hold these truths to be self-evident: that all men are created equal; that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable rights; that among these are life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness.
...Jefferson a slave owner himself, in a clear display of Nihilistic duplicity.

"Such truths", in other words such self-serving lies, are to be held as self-evident, no questions asked.

Multiple lies in that statement, with the "endowed by their Creator" supporting the last lie "unalienable rights".
an example of social contract, the Golden Rule...a shared lie, only an anti-social mind would dare contradict.
It's purpose is social harmony - a artificial peace, a social artifice... accusing deniers of social artifices.
A lie repeated, becomes truth, particularly when it satisfies the emotional needs of a majority.

He who fails to abide by the unspoken social contract must be ill, for it will result in his certain demise - social vengeance as that experienced by Socrates, or Jesus, who dared to reveal the fact hat God, if he is truly as described in monotheism is omnipresent, requiring no priests, no church - in this last case the lie is part of the lie established as fact: it emerges out of the lie's logic, its own premises.
Here survival, personal interest, subjective desire placed above objectivity.
Who but a monster, or a philosopher, would dare speak against the social contract, exposing the lie?

Another example of "logic" built on the premises of a starting hypothetical, taken literally, is the mathematical sentence:
Were the logic follows from the premises already established...beginning with 1.
Taken literally this leads to a one god, a singularity, an absolute.  
Taken artistically, figuratively, it leads to an approximation, a useful representation - symbol of the noumenon applied in relation to phenomena.
One, and its negation nil, are also symbolic representations of what later develops into Nihilistic  [You must be registered and logged in to see this link.] & dualism.


Leftists, throughout the world, claim the moral high-ground as their own inalienable right - as deserving of the "innocent" victim of nature , the one wronged by inheritance, by a past it cannot convert to an advantage.


The advantage rest on the emotional reactions of the common, average mind - the primitive automatic response to anything threatening.
An honest, objective, description of world, cannot but entail come harsh, unjust, fact.
Therefore, whoever speaks of such things, is accused of being motivated by as desire to harm, simply by describing, honestly, a world indifferent to human desires, antagonistic to organic interests.

A liar, a spin-doctor, will always hold sway over the majority, who have already decided they find reality undesirable.
More so when sheltering has permitted unfit mutations to be perpetuated - made possible by protective interventions, they desperately will support protective interventions, at the cost of honesty, lucidity, reality - a reality they would never have experienced without these protective interventions.
A hypocrite, not concerns with remaining true to what is, will find open ears to his calling - exploiting deep-seated anxieties, he will offer soothing relief and be rewarded with money and praise.


The final attempt of a weakling is to claim the moral high-ground, to claim that his emotions, despite his failed reasoning, are superior, and therefore he a higher organism because he feels things deeper, because he appreciates the social bonding emotions more profoundly.
Weakness finds strength in unifying emotion - herd psychology.
Quantity over Quality.
Indubitably of the shared subjective sensation, multiplicity imploding into a singularity - each bringing his/her own nuance to the shared emotion: many shades of blue.
Attraction of a common insecurity - who can challenge, debate, what feels so positive?

Memetic Disease  Empty
PostSubject: DeTox Memetic Disease  EmptyFri Sep 16, 2016 4:41 pm

Doctor is In
This post is reserved for offering antibiotics, to combat the dis-ease, the memetic virus infecting mankind, and more particularly Indo-European man, and even more particularly Europeans.
Symptoms of the dis-ease are defined and described in the other posts, offering insight to preempt the virus taking over and converting you into a mindless zombie.
Once infected, this post ought to offer some guidance - a Red Pill to the Blue Pill swallowed and now being absorbed into your body/mind.
It's a toxin cleanser - DeTox 101,  mental enema.  
It may be painful.


Paganism is the spiritual antidote to Abrahamic Nihilism spiritual nihilism.
Realism is its intellectual counterpart - an antidote to its secularized forms (Marxism, Liberalism, Humanism, Transhumanism...) Modernity.  


Deep mind-cleansing, to rid yourself of the virus, begins with meditation.
Take account of your "understanding" of concepts, and how you define words.
Then take note of why you do so, and from where you adopted those definitions.

Slowly, methodically, re-connect each word/symbol to the apparent - place the word/symbol in its place as connector between noumenon and phenomenon.
Begin with easy words, like love, race, sex...then advanced to more complex concepts, where one or more patterns are included in a congruity.
Separate each word and re-connect it separately, cleaning it of all the crap, the lies, they placed there, when you first began talking, writing, reading, in your first classroom, by your first teacher, by your own parents, by your own peers.

Define the words, and then justify the definition you were given - try to refer it to something observable, empirical, sensually apparent.  
If you cannot seek not accept it as you did before. Test the definition the understanding given.
Doubt it.
Try to observe it in practice, to make predictions, remaining honest with yourself.
Do not submit to emotion, to need, to desire.
See world as it is, not as you wish it were, how you hope it were, how your loved ones told you it was.
Challenge the understanding given, the definitions given, do not simply adopt them as you did the dis-ease infecting you.  
Pharmakon will be bitter, but you must endure. It is part of the healing process.
Your survival is not guaranteed....and if you place it above integrity then you will fail.


Unlike the Nihilist who hates himself, his past/nature and attempts to deny it, to forget it, to escape it, to cover it up and bury it, the realist faces it.

All organisms dislike and are insulted by their past/nature - in relation to their idea(l)s.
But the noble spirit faces his past/nature, trying to come to terms with what he cannot change, trying to cultivate compensating traits, and trying to change what he can.    


A Pagan's relationship to nature is not that of an arrogant, narcissistic (Abrahamic) singular God, but one of courage and humility.
He does not surrender to nature, represented by his gods, he challenges them, worships them, tries to appease them - stands up to them.

He approaches with humility and dignity that which is superior to him, and what made him possible.


A reasonable mind connects its abstractions (noumena) to the apparent/present (phenomena) using words/symbols.

When his abstractions contain more than one pattern, as they often do when we get into more complex ideas, he deconstructs them, connecting each pattern separately, before we appreciates the unity
A metaphor for a congruity of patterns.

Usually this is where the virus slips in: by immersing itself among rational patterns, formed into complex concepts, undetected.
With the rational, abstractions referring to world, a detached noumenon, slips by, now associated, in the mind of the infected, with the unity - gaining legitimacy.
With continual use the nihilistic concept cannot be separated from the non-nihilistic concepts - it is associated with them, mystifying their reasoning, rationalizing its magical mystique.  


There are words that connect directly the mental abstraction to the apparent, there are those that are metaphors (unities of abstractions symbolized by one word/symbol), and then there are words/symbols with no reference to anything apparent in world (outside brain) - pure noumena, ideas - the last usually compensate for this absence of meaning by remaining vague, permitting the mind to find connections of its own (subjectivity), or by referring to emotions, feelings, pleasures (memetic unity, by appealing to the lowest-common-denominator).
By far the most dangerous are metaphors because there literal interpretation can confuse, but worse of all within the grouping of abstractions the nihilistic virus can be slipped through the mind's rational defences.  


When confronted by a cornered manimal, sensing you as a threat to its infected mind, the prudent thing to do is...stand side, and help it along, as it moves towards its destiny.
Do not succumb to your human emotions, fueled, perhaps, by the remnants of Abrahamism in your psyche.
Let time/space deal with it.

For those detoxing after as long period of intoxication, know that the dis-ease has left damage - lesions.
It will take a lifetime of consciously, willfully, dealing with their insidious, automatic, viral processes.
Once an addict, forever an addict.  

A pattern repeats.
The memetic virus has left a pattern, usurping previous genetic patterns.
By "damage" we mean this ingrained nihilistic pattern, that has become strong with repetition, with habituation.

Memetic Disease  Empty
PostSubject: Herd Psychosis Memetic Disease  EmptyMon Sep 19, 2016 6:18 am


In a group of the one-eyed, binocular vision would be socially condemned.
So called, "individualism" is, for the nihilists, a way of coping with their own dependencies, their desire to remain part of the largest, most popular, group, only to distinguish themselves within it, using symbols, secret wisdom, specialized jargon, used as fashion statements.


Distinction of a somnambulist, half-asleep, unaware of his identity, motivated by the same ambitions: self-esteem built no the shared appreciation, the popular decree, of the masses - recognized through tokens of appreciation: money.

In this context the lowest-common-denominator, bridging races, sexes, heritage, culture, genes & memes, are emotions.
Manipulating and exploiting emotions, raises your market value.
It sells to stimulate feelings, directing the organism to an orgasmic release of repressed energies: stress.
The sensations feels uplifting, enlightening, a burden lifted making the mind feel free of gravity.    


Herds congregate, running in unison, to confuse predators - moderns find comfort in groups hoping to confuse destiny, to escape fate.
Within it, the "outside" world seems distant - bodies mingling, shifting, creating a living wall, shelter made of flash and blood.
Self expands to include them all - ego inflated.
Individual dies, but the herd lives on.
Meme is passed on, from brain to brain, making it eternal, they hope.
as long as one of them lives, it remains probable.  


A group is, for the Nihilist, the extent of its hope, the range of his possible effect. Beyond the flesh and blood fluctuating boundaries of the group his prayers, are swept into silence, his please remain unheard, his words are never heard.
Outside the herd, he is powerless, madness at the very thought of it, like staring into the void.
He becomes obsessed with maintaining the herd, with his own place within it - will he be in its center or on the periphery, closest to the outside?


Obsession with social status, with fame 7 fortune, is characteristic of the Modern Nihilist, struggling to jostle its way to the center of the group, the point furthest from the cold, indifferent cosmos, outside, furthest from the undesirable periphery.
When force fails, then a soft cooing, nudging away resistance, soothing nervous tension, with soft words, delivered with tender sounds.
The Modern wants to create a cocoon of flesh and blood alla round him - an enveloping womb, a social network.


Herd Benefit
Postpone the costs indefinitely, enjoying the benefits within the protective shield of the herd/masses, until death saves you from them.
Death as a positive. Ignorance is Bliss.

But does it save you when you've already paid the price?

PostSubject: Duplicity Memetic Disease  EmptyWed Sep 21, 2016 10:16 am


Nihilists must be hypocrites.
it is a matter of survival.
They detach, to survive contact with reality, and then they must lie to self, to preserve self within a world threatening to drive them mad.

Words, detached from its references in reality (noumena detached from phenomena), have essentially castrated themselves from their utility.
Their comforting use, cannot deal with an indifferent world.


If a Nihilist were to remain true to his own values, his own ideals, his own stated principles, he would perish.
Naivete may be charming, worth preserving, but, like a child, it needs contant supervision, or else its carelessness, its infantile psychology, will kill it.  
Innocence is ignorance, and in the case of the dis-ease there si no possibility of gaining knowledge/understanding of a world from where the mind flees.

If the Nihilist does not contradict his own words, with his actions, he faces costs, his fantastic benefits cannot justify.


Nihilists lie to themselves, to cope with a threatening world, and then he must lie to others, to preserve the reciprocity his disconnections demand, so as to survive itself.
Convincing others is a form of validating his lie, to himself.
The more minds it convinces, of the lie, the more true it becomes.
The other faces the same dilemma, and so the social arrangement occurs where each lie, subjectivity, demands from other, validation, because the words/symbols have no reference outside this arrangement - is powerless, impotent.
Nihilistic meme is virile and viral only amongst minds sharing the same lies, or that have come to an agreement.  


Philosophy, for the modern, means political effect - range of his verbal/symbolic power.
The method is debated, the way towards concession, towards the middle of the protective herd, away from the periphery, closet to a world that cares not for words and lies; cares not for human contrivances, and hopes, dreams, emotions, desires.


Duplicity will take many forms, to cover its tracks.
The Modern may defer to an icon, hoping the listener has no knowledge of it, and if he does he will claim a superior interpretation of the icon's words...see Jesus, Mohammed, Buddha, Nietzsche, Marx....etc.
Not once will he attempt to connect the words with reality, the noetic idea(l) with the real, the phenomenon/apparent/present.

The Modern will use impressive verbiage, displaying his vocabulary, his expertise with words/symbols, or vague specialized lingo, to intimidate, hoping the concepts will not be addressed, because they are void of meaning outside human minds.

The Modern will define an obscure concept, detached from reality, using an obscure, insinuating word, by using an even more obscure, insinuating but not clarifying word., and then claim that the "worthy" understood.

The Modern will use positive terms, evoking emotions of pleasure, comforting imagery, soothing feelings.
Seduction of the "[You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]".
What the cosmos denies him and those he is attempting to exploit/manipulate, he provides, as a god, an authority, with a word.
Word mystified, complicated, made incomprehensible, only accessible through surrendering to emotions, to desire, to need - the needy feel its power, experience its magic esoterically.    


A liar can lie to himself, and lie to others, and if he is talented he might convince and/or coerce (Might makes Right), but how does he lie to existence, how does he convince reality?
He lacks the language (Right makes Might) to exploit/manipulate world outside human brains, sharing a common semiology and mythology.
Outside he is impotent, useless, castrated by his own duplicity.


What we call paradox, is when a mind convinced of its linguistic literacy, comes in contact with world - Idea(l) facing Real.
This is a product of human naivete, in its early stages.
Self-Colossiennes not yet mature enough to understand what words/symbols are, in relation to consciousness engaging world.

Currently it is a form of preferred immaturity - a dumbing-down.
Self-lobotomizing, reverting the individuals(s) into a state of childish innocence where magic is still possible, in its most basic definition as supernatural, surreal, made real.
Those involved in this method of self-numbing, will gather in groups of support and reassurance - cliques, emergent herd within the herd.
They will be characterized by a joyous childishness, perpetual adolescence, careless exploration of infinite possibilities.
Many times the self-induced state of numbness can only be achieved using narcotics, but sometimes meditative methods, of placing the mind in a trance, are possible for the dedicated.
