Consuming beats the night before, looks like your insides were involved in a midnight knife brawl, the morning after.

Best thing about waking up, daily, at 5 a.m. is you can wait for the sun to rise, for a couple of hours, in the winter.
Wait for the sun like one waits for a lover.

I am a very sensitive soul, greatly misunderstood.
My past was a defence, to drive others away, not wanting them to see my weakness, to exploit my insecurities, to take advantage of my failings; to, also, not waste my time with foolishness.
It was my method of remaining efficient, and not being bogged down by crap.

I invite all those pushed away, by my past agression, to return.
KT welcomes you back, if the other Moderators will not mind.

Satyr will no longer growl, or bite.
He will purr, and coo, or remain silent.

I willingly cage myself in this thread, to not disturb anyone - my retirement thread/home.

What I've said, still stand as my positions.
I rescind none of it.
I have nothing to add, or subtract from it.
All of it is available in the Adyton.
Those with access can quote them, cut/paste them in the Agora, if they wish, for those without access, but with interest.
I placed them there, because of the times we live in - we must be careful.
Details are up to the reader, if there are any left.
I've been repeating myself, for a long time, I know.
Those who cared, care, those that did not, need not.

My war is over.
Satyr is retiring, hanging up sword and shield.
Though I can still cut others to pieces, I have lost the desire to do so, - the blood lust.
At this point in my life I lose more than I can possibly gain from such actions.
I am now a detriment to the war effort, so to speak.

Whatever I achieved, whoever I influenced, whatever enemies I laid to waste, will be my legacy.
It was a good sixteen, or so, years.
Had a lot of fun.
Met some incredible people, and enjoyed a few more than others.  
I regret none of it.
I have always tried to remain true to my principles, as I understood them.  
My battle scars remind me of every mistake, every misstep.
I wear them all with nostalgic pride.

Time to settle down.
No fight left in the old-goat.
Like a grandfather I want to sit back and enjoy my offspring, occupying my free time with knick-knacks, songs, art, old stories.
Pretty things.
Good food, good drink, table talk - good sleep, a good bowel movement, the sun, the rain, which I adore, flowers, butterflies, my son's laughter, his perfect eyes.  

KT belongs to the members.
I've monopolized it for far too long, became bored, went to extremes to reinvigorate my passion in it.
Tried to leave, and was reminded of my responsibilities.
I accept them.
KT is not about Satyr.
It belongs to the members, or it dies.


To come clean...
My decision is based on some obvious factors.
First, I am older, and therefore not as strong as I used to be.
Second, my real name and address is now plastered all over the place, which means I am vulnerable to any crazy out there I piss off.
I have a son to consider.
Third, returning to my older self, where I would rip some people to shreds, simply because I could, no longer interest me, and it would carry a heavy cost.
Anyone who has followed me from way back, will know how pseudo-intellectuals, spewing psychobabble, were my bread and butter.
But, I was a lone-wolf then, fighting my own fight, in a field much freer, when compared to today's internet restrictions, and forums moderating. it will get worse, I'm afraid, which makes me an old dog unwilling to learn new tricks.
I can no longer cut through morons, like twigs, as I once did, when behind me my swings may injure people standing behind me, or watching on the sidelines.
I need to use a rapier, rather than a battleaxe, and I lack the patience to do so.
I simply cannot pull my punches, once I decide to throw them.
Patience has always been a weakness of mine. I see it in my son, so I know it's genetic.  
Fourth, it is a part of the natural progression of life that a leader must step aside to allow a younger man/woman to take over. Holding on to whatever authority one attains for too long is like playing too long in professional sports - it taints your past glory.
A man must step aside for his son to stand forth, or for another younger man to step forward.
Fifth, reason being health reasons, which I will not elaborate, and place a dagger in my enemy's hand.

I remember a stray cat I once befriended in Greece.
I fed her, because she looked so thin.

To my surprise, she came scratching at my bedroom door, daily, eventually ripping the screen.

She became so trusting that I could pick her up by the head, and she would go limp, like a kitten when the mother carries them.

When I left for the army, I was gone for a year, before my first long leave.
I returned, not finding her.
I thought she had died.
That afternoon I took my father's vespa down to the town - he was in Canada at the time.
I returned, later, and saw the cat running to the house. She had recognized the sound of the Vespa, which is distinct.
Nobody had one in the neighbourhood.
She was emaciated, but as affectionate as before.
I realized she had given birth to kittens, and had hid them somewhere in the cactus bushes.
I fed her well, and before I left I placed food at the door.
Never saw that cat again.
But I still recall her trusting purity, her affections.

Nothing like the first sip of hot coffee, early on a fall morning.

Small pleasures, not to be made more than what they are - twinkles of a distant star.
Let the dark grow thicker, for me to see it dance - light skirting earthly gases from afar.
A messenger delivering a master's power.
How I long to acquire
A ship, with giant sails, and a hard rudder.
Perhaps to Troy
To do battle for another king's love
Perhaps elsewhere
Away from Ithaca shores

Distance makes the heart grow fonder
Closeness makes it grow cold
Caverns to be crossed
only by the bold

Those who can tolerate an ocean
of isolation
resisting the pull of friendly shores
or the warm water of the abyss
that persists

All resistance, mental and physical, can be softened with some chemical help.
Drink some wine and see how many it takes for you to be giggling like a girl/boy, without a care in the world.
Nietzsche's sobriety ought to be reassessed while piss-drunk. Then his meanings change.
He appears happier, more Modern.

And, does not a joint make women less resistant to your other failings?
Does it not gather the girls and boys, wandering urban playgrounds?

When I drink, my firmness softens, but I never lose myself in the inebriation.
I've heard people talk about not knowing what they've done after a night of boozing...not so for me.
I remember everything

Never had problems sleeping, unless something was troubling me.
I've heard other complaining of sleep issues, insomnia, falling asleep after hours of tossing, and I can only empathize remembering my own, few times, of troubled sleeplessness.

Never underestimate the value of a good night's rest, or a cat nap at noon.
At my age, I don't.

There was one memorable night's sleep, when I was but a boy.
My parents had left me behind, in Greece, at my aunts house, and had departed for Canada.
I joined them 6 months later.
I was 8.

My aunt's house was in a mountain village, called Geraki (Hawk).

One night it was so hot she asked if I wanted to sleep on the roof.
Her kids, my cousins, much younger on the veranda.
I said, yes.
She laid down some blankets, sheets and a pillow.
I remember the night was so clear, up there, that the Milky Way was the brightest I had ever seen
The roof so high that there was nothing in my peripheral vision. No trees, no buildings, no town lights.
Nothing but stars surrounding me.
It felt like I was floating in space.
Roof cement fell away, as Hypnos came slowly to claim me floating in the heavens.

Always liked multi-functionality, being, myself a "jack of all trades master of none".

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

Multi-functional cars, furniture, devices, instruments, people...women.
You know, the "sexist ideal": cook, cleaner, maid, teacher, nurse, lover.

Multi-functionality, when you apply my comments on beauty-proportionality-biological functionality, compromises in efficiency, producing some crudeness of style.
Like with the Jeep above.
Mutli-utility, rugged, but lacks a sport-car's sleekness, its effectiveness. The sport car's fragility, high maintenance costs, make it a self-handicapping signal, a social marker. It's utility is singular.
What does it say about a man who chooses a vehicle like the above, or one who chooses a sexy sports-car, or a speedbike?
One is more interested in outcome, the other in image.
One is interested in the work, the other the effect.

PostSubject: Re: potpourri Thu Oct 06, 2016 1:03 am

This thread is kind of feminine.

Speaking of femininity, today i was thinking about the possibly fatal attraction men have towards it, not in the sacrifice kind of way but how they seek to be validated by a feminine presence, which often upholds their meaning in their life. Which isn't really a big deal if you're truly masculine as you wouldn't know either way, things would just play out correctly as the feminine would be naturally attracted and continuously so, so the need never really becomes a need...but for the slightly feminine men, who requires female validation, a natural repulsion is expressed.

The true masculine nature has to stem from the brain orientation as the body is then directed via it, it is through this bodily direction that provides the proof, or natural attraction. Sometimes, when I'm making all kinds of gains in the gym i see steroid guys who have a feminine spirit, that self-consciousness that women have, bothered by external input, heavily affected by it, not enough masculinity to create an obliviousness to push the self towards self-focus where the brain internally provides an immunity. In some of these feminine spirited men, the external input of the world around them intensifies the nervous system causing a continuous muscle contraction.

Feminine straight dudes always trying to communicate with the woman directly, thinking there will be some sort of credibility for it, thinking the honesty of his nature will do him some favors, their minds draw a blank at this point. For the women this just a sign of a feminine essence to which they find naturally unattractive, their minds also draws a blank at this point.

Modern reality crash, did somebody divide by zero?..a woman in bed with her boyfriend, at midnight they are all cozy, she starts speaking in that baby voice..then feminine boyfriend starts speaking in his baby voice..what the hell is happening!!!!! reality is crashing!

Masculine men stand independently on one checked floor square not bothered by all other squares, almost complete in his nature, woman covering all squares except the one the man is standing on, she feels compelled to move onto it. Communication remains indirect despite of female's continuous attempts of direct connection, female remains..when female connects directly, connection is lost as the need disappears..all participating members don't really understand what's going on..

it's kind of funny..

You know what is also funny, ILP constantly feeling the need to insinuate that we are bored over here and we need them here in order to create interest, despite the fact they are watching this thread..

Chatter has been a social way of validating group, and women use it to establish, maintain, and re-evaluate their status within it.
With all masculine expressions restricted males are forced to become feminine - or child-like.

Basic judgment of Nihilism is quantity over quality - numerical advantage compensating for an absence of quality.
With reality out of the way, the other is all that's left.
Silence is death.
one must constantly speak, be looked at, when world means "humanity".
Power = dominating humanity
Existence = being perceived by humanity

Everything has to do with other humans, and this is why simple concepts like "love", and "value" become "problematic".
Philosophy becomes about attracting, converting, seducing, fame & fortune - words no longer connectors to world but french ticklers, vibrators, role playing masks, chemical enhancers, mind numbers...toys.
The game ceases to be infantile when the many are playing it - DnD, computer games...etc.

This is why they consider us "Nazis".
Anything that points to a harsh world is referred to their most viscous memory, usually second-hand, pop-cultural.
Being honest about nature = cruelty against humanity.
He who speaks of reality in a way that hurts, is an icon of pain.
Moderns having been brainwashed for decades in  post-war Nihilistic, and being inexperienced with real pain and suffering, being raised in relative safety, abundance, and comfort, only have pop-culture to fall back upon - movie magic, history written by the victors, a recitation that repeats yearly with more and more "art".
Holocaust is now part of Nihilistic shared consciousness, a "collective unconscious"...in the west. when we think of cruelty, inhumanity, suffering war, the same iamges pop-up, automatically, in our head - certain words accompany our thinking....six-million, Auschwitz...
Abrahamic dominance.
No other people have ever been victimized when the chosen are involved.
The genocide perpetrated against American natives, on a percentile level, is never on the radar because this would implicate the Protestant Anglo-Saxons who won the Civil War.
Genocide against the Armenians, never mentioned, because the Turks are not worthy of being our official "enemies" - too simple, too genetic, nothing memetic to threaten Modernity, the established narrative, where little boys & girls can still play with adult tools for shits and giggles.

Yes, this is intentionally a very feminine thread.
Wanted to express the feminine in me, the little boy.

Let others fight against these growing number of zombies, of crazies...men-children and...the un-recyclable....

Hope it's good.
Fifty years have given me thick callouses.
My son offered to pay for it, with his allowance money.
I also make him earn some of it with work around the house, like vacuuming, moping the bathroom etc.
He's 9.
He's a sweet boy.
I will take the money to teach him how to give, and not only take.

Hope it smooths out my tired feet.

I also ordered this, from Amazon ...

At first sight I thought clever, but coming back to it, it's not clever enough.

If the frame had been made from mock books, well done in design and detail, the seat would appear to be balancing on the books, which would be more interesting and less confrontationally blocky.

Curious, do you know in which decade it was designed?

In my youth I was a tree-huger.
Yes, you read correctly.
In my late teens I was in a stage of spiritual enlightenment.
Feeling the energy in nature. Wanting to tap it.
I felt great power in trees. So strongly rooted in the earth, so daringly reaching up, into the winds, to get to the sun - competing for every beam of light.
I hugged trees wanting to feel their inner strength - wanting to channel it - listening for inner movements, feeling the earth through them.

I remember my father in the back seat of a motorcycle I had, at the time.
I took him on a trip around the Peloponnese, a few years before his death - as if I knew it was coming, as if I wanted this last trip to be my parting gift.
On the final leg of our trip, from Kalamata, crossing over the mountain range that lead up to Tayetos, the spiritual mountain of Spartans, he signaled me to stop, for a piss.
Warm summer air, cooler than down in the valley must have made him remember his youth.
He suggested we sit a while and rest, under the trees.
On Tayetos, one summer day, we slept, listening to the birds and the mountain air making the leaves dance.

A friend in need, is no friend in deed.
When you're poor, generosity is more precious.

I've allowed myself to be exploited.
Giving what I knew was not going to be appreciated, nor returned.
Always put a limit to my generosity, on principle. Never wanting the liar to get away with thinking he tricked me, and it was not I giving it intentionally.
Something uncivil about taking without giving what the other values, equal to how you value what you've taken.
Not reciprocating indicates an absence of appreciation.

It's always the empty ones that take the most, and then only to boast about taking without giving.
A vampire must tranquilize its prey to drain it, otherwise what does it matter if the bloodless drinks of what will be replaced by the end of the day?
Beware of the tranquil, misers, wanting to put you into deep sleep, to take it all.

But they met a different creature, in me.
I always took before I gave.
I despise unappreciative souls, more than I despise hypocrites, of the self-deceiving kind.
Something vile about lying to yourself - like a drunkard falling all around himself, declaring his inebriated love, screaming out his honest opinions, revealing the duplicity of his sobriety. He's lost more than pride, the next morning.
He looks around for his keys in a hangover, but more is missing from the night before.
I cana appreciate lying to others, to take without giving, but to then lie to yourself that it was an act of generosity, well that just goes too far.
At least give-up the moral high ground, when you give up on the principles you claim as your own.
Do not redefine them day after day, to excuse your disloyalty.

Never had a need to bribe for eros , or agape.
Never had a problem getting attention, and of what I could not get I saw nothing deserving of more than a glance of appreciation - reciprocating for a past that made such beauty last, even if it would never be mine.
Since I remember myself, I could open my mouth to speak, and become the center of attention.
I prefer to sit back and watch, at my age.
Watch until I can no longer keep quiet.
I vice, I must confess.
But, I digress, while I undress.
Redirecting your attentions.

I know of liars and hypocrites because I could spot them early on in my development - intuitively.
A sensation, some discrepancy between words and eyes, and lips, and cheeks.
Erring on the side of caution helps, but they call it paranoia now for you to stop it - feminine ways, hip sways.
She fakes it so swell.
What does honesty matter when all's well?

Never needed anything so much that I would be willing to do anything for it.
Never was so obsessed, that a few night of sleep could not erase, leaving behind a trace of precious remembrance.
Always found myself to be enough, with only the pangs of regret coming when in a moment of being moved, by something simple, I looked around wanting to share, as a social mammal is bred to do, and finding nobody it was soon revealed no better than when I found somebody that was not enough to hold the entirety of my spirit spilling over.
My choices were simple.
To deal with the inadequate, for a small return, or to not have to deal with any at all, and have it all for my own.

Do I not share wit with you now?

In all my wanderings, past and present, not once did I hear a bird sing and think it was singing for me.
Not once did I think I had solved a riddle, or that I was someone's one and only.
Not once have I considered myself indispensable, a leader, a guru, a teacher.

I simply show, and ask
"Do you not see?"

I guess I've never been so vain, though I am egotistical as can be.
The opposite, in fact.
Whenever I'm flattered I feel embarrassment, speculating on the motives.
When I am shown appreciation, I blush.
Imitation is the highest form of flattery - actions speaking louder than words.
Mind can lie, but not the body.
Body judges, on the sands of time it draws its appreciations - salivating, moistening, hardening, dilating, contracting, with a mind of its own - a reptilian automatism, the cortex must justify.


Empathy.
Can't watch a shameful act performed shamelessly without cringing, feeling ashamed for the one who feels it not - embarrassed on his behalf.

Have you ever squeezed into your girlfriend's panties, enjoying how your package bulged through the fabric where her vagina presses against?

Yeah...me neither.

Stripping naked to wash is best accomplished if you take-of your clothes.
Down to the skin and hairs.
If possible, tear skin yourself, exposing bone and muscle.

Undress yourself to the core, wash, wipe and add each level working upwards, step by step.
Wet, soap, rinse, dry.
When you reach the skin level, stop. look at yourself with eyes wide one, before you put on your person suit.
That's YOU.

It's liberating when finally all see you as what you truly are beneath all the pretenses and makeup and lies.
No mater the reaction, good or bad, shock, awe, or laughter, the first pangs of pain and embarrassment subside, and you join in.
Walking around, later, having put on the same uniform, you feel lighter, freer.
Like a lifetime spent working for "the man", self-repressing, acting competent, being respectful...and then retirement, and a regular government stipend.

Freedom is wasted on the elderly.

PostSubject: Re: potpourri Tue Oct 18, 2016 12:45 pm

I've gambled, in a casino, four times.
Out of the four two were on my own, and the other two were with friends.
Three times I left a winner, and once I lost.
Small amounts...lost $100 and left, as I had as planned.
Of the three times I won the amounts were $250, $300, and $350.
I was up by more, but the moment I lost three consecutive times, I took what was left and departed, as I had planned.
Three is part of my rule(s)
Of the four times two were consecutive. They were the two times I went on my own.
It was the only time I felt what the gambler's rush was about.
I could always channel best when I was alone - I even prefer going to movies on my own.
I cannot relate, otherwise.

Some would say I fear losing, or I put too much value on the small amounts I've lost, or am willing to lose.
I say...I simply do not feel the expected excitement, the thrill, even when I win.
It's not a big deal, to me. Not on the level I can imagine, empathically, others feel.
I understand it. I cannot relate to it.
I empathize, I do not sympathize.

Before I was married others told me how "good' it is to be married. They accused me of fearing intimacy, fearing failure, of not taking the risks.
They told me not all women were as I knew they were, by observing patterns, empathizing, experiencing vicariously.
I knew there were exceptions to the rule, as there are big winners in casinos, but I also knew the odds, and my own strengths and weaknesses, and I knew my levels of satisfaction/dissatisfaction - how much was too much, and how much was not enough.
I knew how the 'I' (know thyself) related to what was expected (environment/otherness).
Nevertheless I took a chance, wanting to take it as far as it would go, before my losses exceeded what I was willing to give-up.
Time being an important one. Pride, dignity, freedom being the others.
I cut my losses and left.
She begged me to return. Tried to entice me. Wrote me an emotional letter.
I understood the "goodness" of marriage, but not the emphasis others put on it. It wasn't so "good" that I would give-up what they seemed to, or risk what they gave up so easily.
My standards were different.  
Never went back...not even to the Casino.
I took my winnings and invested them elsewhere.
Most of it went to immediate gratifications - easy come, easy go.
A bit went to longer term investments....minimal amounts, over time.  
One, my son, is still pending. I will let him ride, on the roulette wheel of life.
All-in on six - you take nothing with you when you die.
You leave it all behind.

Difference between retirement and a life in labour is one I can, personally, appreciate.
Besides being "deserving" of the retirement moneys, the fact that you receive it changes your psychology.
Your outlook on life.
More forgiving, open, generous, willing to give the benefit of doubt.
More relaxed.
Difference between a tame, domesticated pet, and a wild animal.
Loyalty, love, caution, fear, take on different meanings.
The issue of sheltering.
Inheriting wealth rather than earning it, changes your approach on spending.  
How one earns it being, no less, vital.
The ease, or struggle, the selling of time or talent. One limited by mortality, the other limitless, even after death.

Elvis is still selling, and the Beatles, now two remaining, are still making a profit.

To wit, the least talented two - one, a total dullard, and the other a pretentious shallow man-child, living on the infamy of the two who died.

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

Yes, philosophy should be practiced by those of leisure, but the life that preceded it shapes the approach, and many times the conclusions.
Stress is brutal.
I wonder how many great minds were lost to the genetic drift of the rat races?

Sure, sex, race, are details we can ignore when dealing with abstractions, but if we do so we miss a large part of the mind producing them, especially when the topic is about a species and how and why it thinks.

I watch a movie, like I read books, without looking for a biography on the creator until I am done.
Some begin with a biography.

Who am I kidding?
I hate biographies, unless I am intrigued.
I guess I am rarely intrigued enough to look deeper than what is present in the creator's creation.

I must confess.
When I read fiction I tend to read the last page first.
It's usually not enough to ruin the story but sometimes the information helps me enjoy it more.

Haven't read fiction in almost ten years.

Scanning modern pop-art icons I am amazed by the unfairness of it.
So much "talent" and beauty, in so many.
There's no more fat women to say "it's over".

Can't find a talented ugly person, or a beautiful untalented one, unless I exit my house, or thumb through b-movies and the underground, where little gems hide.  

A few seep through corporate marketing, from time to time.
Pop-filters letting a few indubitable artists have their fifteen minutes before they settle for a career behind the scenes.
Front stage center, all those electronically-enhanced, Botox-injected, shadow-enhanced performers.
A good agent and image maker, and you're good to go.

Is this not true of all careers?
Networking, and having the right connections can put you on the money fast-track, of mass appeal.
An above average talent is about as good as a college diploma, if you want to stand-out from the throng.

I rarely flatter, or like being flattered.
There's something insidious, fake, about words.
They are so easy, and shameless.
I prefer showing affection and admiration with actions, simple gestures, or using indirect language.
I've had to repress my natural inclinations when it comes to my son. A child needs praise to feel loved and wanted, and it wants to have no doubt about it.

When I'm flattered I look for a motive, and when I meet flatterers I am embarrassed for them.
Repeated flatterers make me nauseous. I want to punch their throat and silence them for a long while.
You can imagine how I feel about self-flatterers.  
Like walking into a room to find an individual you thought serious and mature, masturbating, or pushing a dildo in his rectum.
It irreparably damages the previous image you had of them.
His judgment is now under review.
Private self emerging out of public image.  

I remember how a friend of mine gushed with verbal praise over an acquaintance of ours.
I had to avert my eyes.
Like watching an inverted rape scene between people you know.

Of course the opposite can also be disturbing.
To critique continuously, so as to avoid praising.
I fell into a group, one summer, through a friend of mine.
I socialized with them a few times, going to restaurants, movies, and once taking a trip to Ottawa.
That trip stands out because it was the last time I socialized with them.
All they did was complain, criticize.
They had nothing good to say about anything.
It was a long day of whining and trying to find the humour in it.
On the way back I decided that was it. Never again.

I'm the kind of guy who finds a silver lining in everything, along with a dark one.
My philosophy is that in every good there's bad, and in every bad there's some good to enjoy, to gain from, to not make the experience a waste of time.
