Atheism versus Theism
The only permissible conflict, in the west, is that between orthodoxy and secularization.
Abrahamism against Humanism
Spiritual Nihilism against secular nihilism.
An internal conflict between two variants of 'positive' Nihilism, each proposing their own world-negating version of the Absolute.
Cold War is not over.
Before the common, true, threat, a return to the post-world war dynamics is preferable to the alternative.
This is why we only find Abrahamic religious spokesmen exposing the current identity 'crisis' created by the secular branch.
Abrahamism stopped at the idea(l) of God, or the God/Satan dualism, as the extreme extent of their world-negation... but secular nihilists having killed the concept of that God in their hearts and minds, have lost all concepts of measure.
They have abandoned all limits and are now exposing nihilism by pushing its self-referential, esoteric, 'logic' to its absurd ends.
Abrahamism remained disciplined to the word, as defined by the first word = god, and though their own 'reasoning' implies what the Frankfurt School applied, it did not cross that line into overt absurdity, but settled upon covert, occult absurdity.
Death of God, as Nietzsche pronounced, was the death, an end, of that self-imposed limitation.
Abrahamism would not cross that line into absurdity, represented by their concept of an absolute, one-god.
His will, presented as his word, was the line.
His declaration that prevented following through with the 'internal logic' of his own defined existence.
Secular Moderns, having lost that linguistic, noetic, limitation, could now proceed with the internal logic of their shared Nihilism.
Consider the rule against taking your own life.
For the Abrahamic the 'logic' of wanting to end suffering, an existence that was illusory, and to speed-up the process of approaching their unity with the singularity they called god was denied to them with a decree, supposedly coming from the god himself.
Suicide is a sin – a convenient limitation to 'God-given’ free-will.
Though salvation from need/suffering is offered, an a more real reality awaits one after death, the faithful cannot avoid the process of testing and self-cleansing - they have to endure a lifetime of need/suffering, proving their faith and their merit, supported only by the knowledge that it awaits them at the end.
The internal logic is denied unfolding. God, through words/symbols, imposes a limit to the internal, self-referential 'logic'. He is the concept that is beyond 'logic', and so need not justify himself.
A convenient way out of the paradox the mind is placed in.
Secular Moderns have lost this dogmatic authoritarian limit to their common, with the Abrahamic mythologies. They accept no limits to their 'reasoning'....not from natural order and certainly not from some imaginary mind imposing a rule that would deny them their salvation.
Secular Humanism is Frankfurt School directing them to surpass Abrahamic limits to common ideals.
This is why we see this conflict between Atheism, defined by Marxist rejection of spiritual authoritarianism, and Theism, defined by Abrahamism.
Both sides pivot around their shared definition of god, representing the absolute, or order.
It's part of the political discourse in the US, defining the lines between religious right & liberal left.
Both accept the same premises as self-evident and challenge each other over the applications and the implications of what this acceptance means - Nihilistic paradigm.

Spengelr attributed the distinctiveness of the 'western man' to a 'yearning for infinity' - Faustian personality.

Duchesne comments on it in his book Faustian Man in a Multicultural Age...
Duchesne, ricardo wrote:
This deed-oriented man is not satisfied with a Darwinian struggle for existence or a Marxist struggle for economic equality. He wants to climb high, soar upward, and reach ever-higher levels of existential intensity. He is not preoccupied with mere adaptation, reproduction, and conservation. He wants to storm int the heavens and shape the world.


This is where the danger lies....to be taken by mythology to be governed by passion and escape the grounding upon world to soar upwards into idealism.
This is where degenerates, or a small distinct portion of them, the 'positive nihilists' attempt their verbal juggling and appropriation of the European spirit to pretend that they've overcome their preoccupations with survival and reproduction.  

I've described it as a disconnection of language from its worldly references, or the detachment of mind from body, from the physical....noumenon from phenomenon.
Mind soaring upward but no longer grounded, standing, on the earth....but released into fantasy - mythology freed from its earthly representations....but myth replacing the earthly.

"Storming into the heavens" does not presuppose a storming out of the worldly.
"Soaring upwards", metaphor for idealization, the mind, does not mean a non-grounding, a non-return to the earth, the physical.
"Shaping the world" does not mean recombining abstractions in your mind, synthesizing abstractions and redefining words.

Bringing us back to this 'infinity' concept.
Space/Time = possibility/probability.
Infinity is a reference to the ideal of infinite possibilities.
Post-moderns understands this as a release from past, and a reinvention of what it means to be alive and to be human - denying race and sex as the limiting natural order, the worldly, from which they want to escape, so as to reinvent themselves at will.

But to reshape the world you must dominate it, and to dominate it you must understand it, and to understand it you must know it.
One reshapes a given shape....one does not invent a new one, conjuring it up from nowhere, or by fantasizing it by combining existing shapes, that cannot be applied in reality, that are meaningless in reality.
If what is being conjured up in the mind, as it releases itself from the earthly, cannot be applied in reality, or cannot be explained using common language, as a product of a relationship of mind with reality, then it is nonsensical drivel, not the will of the Faustian spirit.

Consider the concept of 'equality', as one foundation of the Modern psychosis.
It has an emotional reference, and remains vague  and unable to be applied, or defined using language....so it relies on ambiguity and emotional criteria to remain a vibrant.
It has no reality. There is no such thing as equality.
The concept is a human abstraction...and it attempt to reshape the world...by contradicting it.
World is defined by inequality, not equality.....equality would be a negation of its principles.
A modern can claim that he is a 'Faustian spirit' reshaping the world according to his higher ideals....and this is what moderns have done.
They've misunderstood, and based their underlying reproductive and survival obsessions on misinterpreting or misunderstanding Spengler's definitions of western man as Faustian.

A child can fantasize mythological worlds, and redefine and misuse words to accommodate his imagination....this does not make it Faustian, but a preliminary stage towards becoming so.

Returning to a child-like state presupposes maturity....because if one never grew up he is not returning, he is stagnating.
A surrealist artist must first display his talent by painting realistically, before he indulges his spirit and attempts to represent his reactions and intimate abstractions.
To soar, one must start from a ground, and return to it - floating in infinite space is not soaring; it is being in limbo, it is lostness.
To reach upward your feet must find a balance on the earth, otherwise one falls.

Mental Masturbation
To masturbate you need an image of an idealized sexual object, and a scenario, a context within which the fantasy will occur.
To mentally masturbate you need a metaphor and a narrative.

In both cases the orgasm signifies the goal, and another is necessary, though when it has become a fetish another may be required to witness the act, because it is infertile.
Mental masturbation, in particular, where the end-result is inconspicuous, the act has to be validated by an observer who can attest that it did happen, and that orgasm, pleasure reward, was achieved.

Addiction to the absolute is powerful because it is essentially an addiction to one's own desires, represented in the abstractions the mind creates.

For each mind the absolute has a slightly different connotations, referring to the particular individual's own personal needs.
For example, for some it represents predictability, order, certainty, while for others it represents hope, or a parent, a consciousness that can be reasoned with, that can care, that can be understood.

This makes the absolute a difficult addiction to break.
God was the first universal construct that could be sold to millions who could not construct anything quite as sophisticated.
God's pronounced death means the concept is outdated in a world of higher literacy rates and accumulated knowledge/understanding.
The absolute had to be given a different image.
One, for example is well-suited for the more scientific mind.
The same abstraction is alluded to, minus the anthropomorphic elements that are more attractive to ignorant mins or emotional ones.
Minds that need the absolute to also be conscious and approachable, potentially intimate.

The concept of absolute order is more attractive to the authoritarian, masculine types.

The nervous system, which includes the brain as its processing hub, is the nexus dividing/uniting body & mind.
It is the ambiguous point where duality and the binary code begin.
The nervous system converts sensual input, coming from internal and external sources, into nervous energy, converting it to a reaction, in primitive organisms, and/or transmitting it to brain, in more sophisticated organisms, where it is processed further.
The nervous system is where the objective is translated into subjective, developing into what we know as the real being translated into idea(l) .
It is where the memetic virus infects the organism, inverting the translation to contradict the perceived – the idea(l) negating the real.
Because nervous energies can also be stored in waiting, for the fight/flight mechanism, or as libidinal energies directed towards sexual reproduction, the primary symptom of this dis-ease is sexual dysfunction, and confusion.
Unable to be expunged these nervous energies accumulate until fragmentation begins – neurosis culminating in narcissism and/or schizophrenia.
The breach between mind/body widens, and may become permanent.
Compartmentalization is an indication of mental fragmentation – schizophrenia.
Judgment is divided. One standard used in one instance and an entirely opposite one in another.
This neurosis may not result in fragmentation but an inversion.
The mind turns inward, unto itself. The world is pushed to the periphery, kept ‘outside’, and selectively permitted to enter consciousness.
Intricate alternate realities can function as substitutions for the one denied – development of occult, esoteric world-views ensue.
Solitude forces the mind to attempt to pull in other minds.

Antipathy to conflict is an antipathy for (inter)activity and a desire to avoid the cost/benefit consequences.
Such a psyche is willing to risk losing the benefits just to avoid the risk, because it has lost all confidence it itself and its capacity to endure.
This anti-dialectic is the epitome of pure nihilism.
An upfront desire to die, so as to not experience existence as need/suffering.
A feminine disposition that has faced disillusionment at the hands of positive Nihilism so many times that its heartbreak rejects all men on the ground that they are all liars, and dogs.

How many times can a girl's hear be broken before she gives-up on men and joins a monastery...not once blaming her self and her romantic understanding of love?

An animal has more common sense than a modern manimal.
It does not mistrust its senses. It knows that what appears different is, in fact different.
It can tell and smell male from female.
It does not feel 'trapped' in an alien body.
It does not think culture has constructed sex and breeds.
It lives by the consequences of its own judgments, and does not look to find someone or something else to blame.

Why?
Because it is healthy, and the manimal is ill.
It is healthy because the dis-ease infecting the manimals brain is transmitted through words - it is Nihilism which is a brain dis-ease transmitted by symbols, making an animal immune to it.

All men admire and are affected by what exceeds their own limits, whether these are circumstantial, socioeconomic, or genetically determined.
Some experience envy and are inspired to become that which they see as above them.
Some experience envy and, feeling insecure about themselves, are inspired to bring that which is above them down.
They relate to it as a reminder of their own inadequacies.
Pulling something down may not be destructive, but reconstructive. One can adjust the thing coveted to become more attainable - the individual redefining it in ways that make it approachable.
Another variation is to place the admired one so high as to remain forever in its shadow - a child under its parental care.

Some covet and rise up to meet it, and others covet and pull it down to destroy what reminds them of their own failures, or to remake it into something closer to how they see themselves.

A female covets and wants to belong to that which surpasses her, and a male covets and wants to become it, or destroy what he is surpassed by.

Trump is an example of how right/left politics are trapped in a nihilistic paradigm.
For one he is a product of right conservatism, where status and wealth is inherited and not earned and the system is there to preserve hierarchies, permitting some socioeconomic migration to preserve internal peace.
Here we have a classic example of sheltering producing narcissism and a infantile psychosis, appealing to psychotics of the same ilk.
A system that worships hypocrisy and narcissism places on the top a classic narcissist, to be adored by imbeciles and pretentious narcissist who are inspired, can relate, and cannot help feeling superior to him.
He is the perfect package.
A spoiled brat, rising to the top because he has no principles and no ambitions beyond his reflection in others - a social image - becomes the icon to spoiled narcissistic brats the world over, and he is idiotic enough to also become beneath them.
They see themselves in him and he is inferior and child-like to become someone to feel superior to.

The message is inspiring.
If a hypocrite and self-involved psychotic like him can seduce millions of imbeciles and be made chief, then what's to stop these 'more mature' narcissists from exploiting human idiocy?

Wikipedia wrote:
In the field of psychology, the Dunning–Kruger effect is a cognitive bias wherein people of low ability suffer from illusory superiority, mistakenly assessing their cognitive ability as greater than it is. The cognitive bias of illusory superiority derives from the metacognitive inability of low-ability persons to recognize their own ineptitude; without the self-awareness of metacognition, low-ability people cannot objectively evaluate their actual competence or incompetence.[1]

As described by social psychologists David Dunning and Justin Kruger, the cognitive bias of illusory superiority results from an internal illusion in people of low ability and from an external misperception in people of high ability; that is, "the miscalibration of the incompetent stems from an error about the self, whereas the miscalibration of the highly competent stems from an error about others."[1]

Pride in yourself, respect for yourself, is what stops the few from believing the lies of the shameless and the guileful.
Dignity. The foundation of nobility.
Dignity stops the few from believing comforting lies, and from buying into word-based contrivances.
A spirit of wanting to see, even if it means something terrible and life threatening will be perceived.
Dignity produces intellectual integrity: holding yourself responsible for all mistakes and deceptions.

Eastern Europeans have the psychology of a child that has been told stories about a place of infinite amounts of candy, has seen this place, dreams of this place and is then released to discover it is real.
The candy is not nutritious, and its is mostly candy, and fancy food colouring, but it tastes good.
Most will become addicted to it....a few having become used to its absence will be less inclined.

What Nihilism offers in Hollywood fantasy, presented as the 'American dream', is sweet and it looks tasty, like those fast-food commercials that make crap look delicious and fresh.
Having been denied a taste makes one both vulnerable and immune.

The larger the group you want to belong to, the more exaggerated your desire to stand-out within it.

The more inclusive, tolerant, the group wishes to be, the more base, vague, and insinuating its defining principles become.
Darkness is the great equalizer.
Whether in death, sleep, or in the night, all forms merge and mingle.
Light disperses, separates and divides, cutting through the dark like a blade.
Light is the medium of consciousness and consciousness is discrimination.

Something interesting: in Abrahamic religion, God does not see things which take place in bed for those commenced together.

For the desire to be alone, or distinguished: a tribe to return to. To distinguish yourself and then maybe return and plant seeds. Modifying of nature which belongs to your most distinct group, for the sake of challenging or splitting off. Challenge comes through battle of distinct group against self (most distinguished identifier). [Not ascetic] Genes w/ conquering, genes w/ memes (sexual selection changed by culture).

The modern defined "desire to stand out": to have others express belonging to you, so you increase status in larger group. Modifying of nature which belongs to another group, for the sake of belonging to a larger. Or modifying nature of larger to become superficial smaller: the modification always having "goodness" all are responsible toward. Ascetic through methods of modification: chopping noses, dyeing hair. Superficial by insignificant change: baubles and bracelets.

A common trait among European males, and Aryans of both sexes, in general: the individual, seeking seclusion, and requiring only a select few to share himself/herself with.

It is a trait common among those we call geniuses, as well.
Consider the great philosophers who never married and never had children, or could not take the chatter of the masses and isolated themselves.

Spartans had two kings and only submitted to a leader as one of the same, not an equal, but as the superior of the same - Homoioi...not Isoioi.
Alike, not equal.
A man was a king in his own home, and defended his own blood, when he fought common enemies.


Quantity versus Quality...bot a weakness and a strength with Aryans.
These contained circumstances benefit the quantity minded.
American individualism = consumer choices, sexual choices, goods and services options, and prostituting self to others for self-esteem, measured monetarily.
It's the old 'divide and conquer' in the form of a culture of no culture - fashion trendiness, who is 'in' and who is 'out' changing from week to week - flavour of the month.
Survival at all costs - if you survived you are good, because how you managed it is inconsequential.

When the manimal brain got trapped in its herd psychology, it placed survival at the top of its objectives - it idealized life and living.
From there the idea of one absolute God was inevitable.
they could pay any price, if they could exist for more than a lifetime - they would sacrifice, reason, ego, integrity, their only begotten son, their pride....their humanity.....anything and everything to survive.
This made bacteria icons to be emulated, to be admired and imitated.
This made the memetic virus seductive.

Trendy distinction comes from a bastard of Abrahamism: materialism. Every distinction must be harmless and superficial. Otherwise you are "oppressive", and no longer can claim victim status while you're distinct.

[You must be registered and logged in to see this link.] implies that the simpler you are, mentally, the more confident and arrogant you can become.
Cross species behaviour can be used. A dog, if treated as a human, an equal, begins to believe it is not only equal to his owner, but superior, and may bite and snap trying to assert its alpha status.
In humans, the more of a simpleton an individual is, the more he will tend to be arrogant.
An annoying fact.

A primitive mind ascribes a motive to what it cannot wrap itself around and make sense of.
Unable to understand how unconscious forces acting in relation to each other can produce repetitive processes they fall back on themselves and project into the incomprehensible the only thing they truly know, to some degree, themselves.
This is more despicable when it is intentional. When what drives this superstitious projection is not ignorance but knowledge the mind cannot accept without being terrified of the implications.

Being cynical is easy when you feel you've got nothing else to lose but what's left of your time on earth.
This indifference feels charming, to others.
They think you've discovered a powerful secret, when all you are is lost.

Young is now collaborating with several other members of the Centre for Translational Social Neuroscience 'to extend his findings in rodent models to non-human primates, including rhesus macaques and chimpanzees'. In a recent interview in CBC radio, young admitted that the so-called 'cuddle hormone,' 'the love drug,; identified as 'the moral molecule; that would usher in an era of cooperation across the world, has now been revealed by scientists as having a 'dark side'. Young noted that when it comes to human behaviour, the latest science suggests oxytocin plays a similar role, as in the study of primates, in creating an 'us versus them' dynamic. Dr, Catherine Crockford, from the Max Planck Institute for Evolutionary Anthropology, was cited in this interview, her discovery that chimpanzees' oxytocin levels surge in anticipation of and when they go to war. These findings have troubled these scientists made to believe as students that aggression, in-group behaviours, are 'imagined' realities constructed by white male biological determinists.

Another nihilistic ideological myth destroyed by reality.

On Strauss' Zionist contributions to western decay...
Duchesne, Ricardo wrote:
Strauss wanted a revised interpretation of Anglo-Saxon citizenship standing above tribal identities and historical particularities. Strauss's objective was to provide Anglo-American government with a political philosophy that would stand as a bulwark against "intolerable" challenges from the left and the right, which endangered liberalism itself. The West had to affirm the universal truthfulness of its way of life and be guarded against the tolerance of forms of expression that threaten this way of life.
Havers observes that Strauss was particularly worried about the inability of liberal regimes, as was the case with the Weimer republic, to face up to liberal challenges. He wanted a liberal order that would ensure the survival of the Jews, and the best assurance for this was a liberal order that spoke in a neutral and purely philosophical idiom without giving any preference to any religious faith and any historical and ethnic ancestry. He wanted a liberalism that would work to undermine any ancestral or traditional conservative norms that gave preference to a particular people in the heritage  of America's founding, and thereby may discriminate against Jews. Only in a strictly universal civilization would Jews feel safe while retaining their identity.        

-Canada in Decay

The Zionist agenda is revealed.
A duplicitous double-talk, marketing what the fabricator does not buy.
The goal is to level all down to make the world harmless to the meek and the victims, unable to surrender not to compete with what is above it.

Oxytocin = one of the chemical mechanisms evolved to deal with the fight/flight mechanism.

Left is the political expression of the 'positive' Nihilism psychosis.
The right is pulled into its vortex.

The malignant narcissist wants to make everything about him....and so the entire world is anthropocentric.
Humanity is world.
He sees himself in everything, and calls it god.

The noumenon conflicts or is confronted by the phenomenon....and in a healthy mind the lines between subjectivity and objectivity are not crossed.
They remain clear.
Ideal is distinct from the real.

In psychotics these lines are blurred.
Psychosis has many degrees. It can remain on a linguistic level of confusing words for actions, or being unable to differentiate theory from reality.
Nihilism flips this, to where the esoteric is exoteric and the exoteric is esoteric.
Projection is one aspect.
In schizophrenia internal voices, images, seem to come from an external source.
The narcissist projects self into everything. He sees himself everywhere and in everything.
The "I" and "Other" are inverted, or confused, one merging into the other.
The narcissist is mesmerized by the idealized version of himself reflected in other.

Paranoiacs confuse their self-doubts with an other's judgment.

Modern psychology has been infected with Freud's insights into human psychology.
As a Jew he had no issues with mortality, but began fro the perspective of how to apply his time on earth.
He focused on sex.
those who have already decided what occurs after death can obsess over how to pass their short time among the living.
Hedonism immediately takes over.
Whether you side on one side, that says death is a stage towards something else, or that it is a final end, both positions are convictions about mortality.
This frees the mind to dedicate itself to the pleasures of the earthly, or how to pass one time.

Jung correctly saw this as only a partial truth.
Before the sexual was the issue of death.
It is in relation to death that sex has meaning, or a utility, a function.
Mortality is the underlying anxiety of the human condition.

To place it into perspective we must define what life is, in relation to the non-living, and what an individual is, in relation to the living.
A definition of self is essential.
The definition should not be mystical or make any assumptions that cannot be validated by using experienced existence.
This would be easy and its easiness should make us suspicious of the motive.

A word referring to a concept an abstraction, when and if possible, should be defined in ways that refer to experienced, real world sensual phenomena.
To accurately define 'self' we must use the word to distinguish and to clarify.

Therefore we can use the word 'ego' to refer to the lucid part of consciousnesses, or self-consciousness, and use the word 'self' to refer to all the unconscious factors that produce life, consciousness and then self-consciousness.
the word 'self, therefore shall refer to the chain of events, known and unknown, that participated in the emergence of the ego - ego as a pinnacle of consciousness.
Self would then be the chain, linking the ego, or the presence of an individual organism, to a past.
We can further this method and use the word 'spirit' to distinguish what past of this 'self' preceded the birth of the individual in relation to what followed.
We are using symbols/words as they were means to be - as a method of differentiating and clarifying.

Ego = lucid self - self-consciousness.
To this the Delphic command of know Thyself is directed.
Self = the sum of all past, known and unknown, participating in presence, or the emergence of the individual as present.
Soul = the sum of all that preceded the birth of the particular ego/self.
Spirit = the collective sum of the reproductive type that participated in the particular - the entirely of individuals, born and dead, that participate in the phenotype out of which the individual emerges.

Once we've designated the application of the symbols/words we are to sue to refer not to imagined but to real phenomena, we can proceed to bring to light what remains mysterious because ti is unknown.

The individual is now a product of a chain, a continuum of known and unknown events (interactions) that define and give him a distinct identity.
Its appearance is a display of these events, in their entirety.
The observer's perception and judgment determines how well he can interpret what is not hidden, but is present. Every detail is a sign.
To dismiss appearance is illusory or superficial is to make of one's self intentionally blind to what is present.

I've already described and explained why the majority presently do so (Moderns), and what psychosis motivates them (nihilism).

Premonition

Three factors to consider.
1- The phenomena (inter)acts with the organism in its entirety, and not only through the sense organs. The skin is a sense organ. This data cannot be translated into a form drawn from experiences but must remain on a primitive state as sensation.    
2- The senses convert (translate) data that is then discarded because it cannot be integrated into a mental model.
3- The organism is always making sense of what has already occurred, because it experiences (inter)activity as hindsight. The temporal lag is due to the times/space required to collect and to process stimulations, converting them to neural signals and then to abstractions. Most data remains on the primitive form of sensation, or is too subtle to be perceived consciously.
The combination of these three factors produce the sensation we call a ‘gut feeling’, or a premonition, or we call it intuition.  
The organism is continuously (inter)acting with both ordered (patterns) we call matter/energy, and chaotic (non-patterned) Energies.
Only a small fraction of these (inter)actions become consciously registered, and a large percentage cannot be processed, or integrated into an abstraction (thought), but must remain in its primitive state of mere sensation.
The organism is always (inter)acting in the present, but experiencing (inter)activity in the immediate past. This makes the sensation preceded the intuition by a time/space period equal to the minds processing speed.

Sensation precedes conception, depending on the individual’s state of mind – inebriation, or distraction, as well as slow processing speeds contributing to the length of time experienced as intuition.
Data may not be integrated into a cohesive mental model until a missing piece is added, at a later time. This is attributed to paranormal, or supernatural factors.
The mind pieces together data it has already collected but could not process, or integrate into a clear thought – it could not make sense of what it felt.
