Of course my choice of words is aesthetically based, and determined by conventions and communication necessities, and is not so important as long as the symbol refers to the same observable, testable, phenomenon and not to some private, subjective mental fabrication that can only be felt, or believed in.  

Whether you call a cow a horse, does not matter if you define cow by the behaviours applicable to cows.
The multiplicity of languages converge upon the world, as all describe and refer to shared phenomena, and they diverge when it comes to theoretical mental fabrications accepted on faith.  
If I were to name a horse 'cow', and justify it with mystical insinuations, but I referred to behaviours that best described the interactivity of a penguin, then I would be using it inappropriately and with no meaning and substance.
The usage of an inappropriate moniker usually hides a deep desire, feeding a deeper need.

The extrovert promises and threatens from the positive, projecting his power as negation of what already is.
The introvert promises and threatens from the negative, projecting his power as a positive that is not but will be.

Self, defined as the sum of all past events that contributed to your becoming would include all events prior to your birth and gestation.
This makes selflessness a joke, only clowns take seriously.

Ego, as the Greek word for 'self', can be used to differentiate known self, self-consciousness, from all those events, processes the mind cannot be aware of.

Words used to clarify, to discriminate what appears uniform - bringing to light a divergence.

When dealing with living organisms words refer to patterns called behaviours, and are placed within the discipline of psychology.
Psychology deals with behaviours, patterns of interactivity, in relation to a norm, an average.
Terms like 'neurotic', 'psychotic' refer to behaviours that are distinct from the norm, the average, to a degree that makes them discernible disposition.  

The word 'male', for instance, refers to a specific specialized patterns of behaviour, and all members belonging to this category are compared to the average norm.
Words refer to activities, because there is no absolute....there is only process, interactivity - Flux.  

Species is the term, the symbol/word, we use to refer to an average pattern/behaviour characteristic of all members of a self-replicating population, using a particular method of reproduction, and developing a uniformity in all aspects of behaviour, including survival strategies.
Species is first and foremost a sexual/reproductive category...and all additional traits are to be placed within this definition.
This does not make sex central to its behaviour, but death, which sex evolved to deal with.
 
Each individual is then compared to the upper and lower limits of the observed, testable, behaviour, of a given population, and to an observable average symmetry and proportionality of organs, psychology etc.
The word 'behave' can be used to differentiate living organisms interacting in accordance to data informing their behaviours, from non-living patterns that simply interact, without any stored memories constantly informing/directing their actions.
This data stored as memory is called DNA, which can be cultivated, left to atrophy, sublimated, enhanced and/or repressed by experiences - the individual organism's particular interactions with existence, expressed as a relationship, an attitude - psyche, soul/spirit.  

Behaviour is organic interactivity following genetically determined and evolved patterns.
Memory is the binding causality of organic identity.
Nature = sum of all past nurturing.
Even when categorizing non-living patterns it is man's memory that binds them into a continuum it then confuses as intentional, willful, when they are circumstantial.

For life the past is made present - made apperent.
With inorganic patterns the past is not involved...but the patterns, or collection of patterns, always interact as particular pattern, relative to other particular patterns - attracting/repelling simultaneously, forming into balanced unities, or fragmenting due to an overwhelming imbalance (repulsion).  
Of course the word 'behave' can be used to refer to particles interacting, clouding the distinction between living and non-living patterns, and enabling anthropomorphism to captivate the mind with its comforting insinuations.
Words used as metaphors confuse the mind by clouding distinctions.
This is also a psychologically determined attempt to escape a reality the organism finds displeasing - either because it is too much, overwhelming, or because it is not enough, underwhelming.

The desire to add to complexity,to increase chaos, rather than reduce it, is the death drive wanting to disappear in uniformity, and only stand out in relation to it.
This desire is expressed in the belief in a hidden, underlying, and/or overlying reality, and the underwhelming feeling that the world is not enough, contrasting with the psychology that shrinks into uniformity, this wants to immerse itself in an alternative, hyper-reality, with the aid of accelerating chemicals, that trigger cellular interactivity, firing of neurons that produce images, accentuates sensitivity, dream-like visions, sensations etc.

Rather than shrinking inward, into uniformity of nil, this psychosis wants to escape the mundane by exploding out of it, into the surreal, the supernatural - positive Nihilism.

The real is "usurped", overcomed, and the mind escapes into hyper-realism, its own abstractions projected as compensation for a world that lacks them.

Abrahamism (Judaism = Christianity/Islam) is a spiritual nihilism that finds the world 'not-enough', and seeks followers in those who find it 'too-much'.  
It's positive Nihilism, offering projected absolutes, in the form of corrections, fulfillment, under-covering, seducing the common pure nihilists who needs such abstractions and cannot find them, cannot endure a world lacking them.

If spiritual nihilism shed its god, became secular, it did so to become more seductive across tribal, genetic, boundaries.
It reinvented itself as Marxism, Humanism, post-modernism, transhumanism, to become marketable to a broader pool of disenchanted, by spirituality, minds, lost and floating in limbo in a world with no absolutes.
It renamed spiritual absolutes, slightly modifying the definitions, and resold them to the same desperate minds as progress, as the new.

To put it into the context of Feminization of Mankind:
The priestly, Abrahamic guru, is a hyper-masculine spirit, compensating for deeper insecurities having to do with his identity and masculine role, fabricating an inflated, hyper-reality, which attracts the more feminine spirits, seeking a leader, an absolute, guidance etc. Symbiosis between positive and pure nihilists.
In a world of increasingly emasculated, males with no connection to their past, no anchoring, no foundations in family, these hyper realists become salesmen to a primed for exploitation populace.

Masculine, or positive nihilism is always attempting to usurp the rule of nature, of natural order.
Christianity is an example...as it overturns natural order by fabricating an alternate reality - a harem that invite all the feminine spirits into it, if they submit to its principles.
Feminine, or pure nihilism, is always attempting to hide, or surrender to it, and and if is either seeking for a hiding place, behind the masculine, or it is suicidal and/or stoic, enduring of its pains and suffering.
It is always running, fleeing, towards a saviour.

Why is light so inspiring, so welcoming, so beautiful; why has it become a metaphor for the divine?
Because it is the fastest medium the human organism can perceive, that exposes the human mind to potentials, the possibilities of time/space, and the probabilities within (matter/energy).
Because light is the extreme limit of our acuity, all else falling into darkness - a perceptual-event-horizon, creating an encompassing world.
Because light helps us triangulate, using binocular vision, and orient ourselves within an unknown, threatening, world.

Jung, Carl wrote:
The division into two was necessary in order to bring the ‘one’ world out of the state of potential into reality. Reality consists of a multiplicity of things.
But one is not a number, the first number is two, and with it multiplicity and reality begin. (1955–1956, par. 659)…

The nigredoor blackness is the initial state, either present from the beginning as a quality of the prima materia, the chaos or massa confusa, or else produced by the separation (solutio, separatio, divisio, putrefactio) of the elements.
If the separated condition is assumed at the start, as sometimes happens, then a union of opposites is performed under the likeness of a union of male and female (called the coniugium, matrimonium, coniunctio, coitus), followed by the death of the product of the union (mortificatio, calcinatio, putrfactio) and a corresponding nigredo.
From this the washing (ablutio, baptisma) either leads direct to the whitening (albedo), or else the soul (anima) released at the ‘death’ is reunited with the dead body and brings about its resurrection, or again the ‘many colours’ (omnes colores), or ‘peacock’s tail’ (cauda pavonis), lead to the one white colour that contains all colours.
At this point the first main goal of the process is reached, namely the albedo, tinctura, alba, lapis albus etc., highly prized by many alchemists as if it were the ultimate goal.
It is the silver or moon condition. The albedo is, so to speak, the daybreak, but not until the rubedo is it sunrise . . . the rubedo then follows direct from the albedo as the result of raising the heat of the fire to its highest intensity.
The red and the white are King and Queen, who may celebrate their ‘chymical wedding’ at this stage.

Jung speaks of the absurdity of the singularity.
The near-absolute- the absent singularity, is conceptualized as a duality - as Ying/Yang, as either/or, as positive/negative, as order/chaos and the many other forms of dualism, of binary logic, 1/0, based on the neurological method of on/off...flow/no-flow.

All consciousness required discrimination, distinguishing, separation, differentiation of what appears to be similar.
We call this 'bring into light', refer to our own consciousness.
We make lucid, we clarify, by dividing what is observable, perceptible.

To offer such divisions based on esoteric, private, inconspicuous abstractions is easy, and such constructs can only be sold to gullible minds, seeking clarity they cannot find or are dissatisfied with, by making them attractive, seductive, appealing.
The charlatan, positive Nihilists fabricates internal abstractions, representing them with symbols/words that have no external reference, and then sells them to pure, or feminine nihilists who are seeking certainty, a comforting absolute.

The symbol/word, as a neurological representation is a conduit, a nexus connecting body to mind.
Data can flow outward or inward.
The symbol/word can be used to connect mind to body and the world, with the physical, or it can be used to pull the world inward, to an esoteric alternative to the world.
In the context of the nihilistic paradigm, feminine spirits seek shelter in alternative noetic fabrications, away form reality, and masculine spirits offer a product of their own mind, validating it with feminine acknowledgment.
Symbiosis.

This psychology is expressed in the usage and application of symbols/words, in relation to a world nobody can deny without suffering the consequences.
The usage of symbols/words to detach from reality can only reach the level of absurdity when the individuals practicing this form of self-numbing, escapism, are protected from reality.

We have two distinctly opposite attitudes concerning reality, and awakening to world.
One divided into two poles, described above, and the other can be called Realism, with its spiritual expression being Paganism, rooted in the Indo-European traditions - Aryanism.

Realism wants to remain true to reality, and seeks clarity, in its relationships with it.  
It uses word to connect to the apparent, and not detach from it.
It engages reality, and attempts to adjust self, in relation to it, adapt.
It tries to change self, and then the other, basing this on observation, analysis.
The objective of changing other, world, in relation to an ideal, has to take the form of action, and not remain theoretical, linguistic, symbol.
In other words, the abstraction has to return to the external world, from where it was born, as behaviour, activity, as physicality.
In theory all thoughts are perfect, and can be made to be self-consistent.

World is the final arbitrator.
This is why the ancients worshiped natural order in the form of deities.
They did not worship the abstraction in their heads, nor did they worship perfect, absolutes...the gods were imperfect, because they were metaphors for real phenomena, or representations of dead ancestors.
The laymen, the mediocre among them did believe in these symbols literally...but this is the case with all ideas.
The mediocre always need to be given a simplified version of what is too complex for it to fathom, or a comforting delusion to help it cope with its own mediocrity.

The construction of a plausible, self-consistent and yet, at the same time, totally detached from reality fable, is part of the positive nihilistic methodology.
It is rooted in herd psychology, witnessed in fish schooling, bird flocking, and mammals herding.
The positive nihilist places himself, at the center of a collective - makes himself the ideal, the door towards the unifying concept, and attracts insecure members into a group - creating a fluid wall of flesh and bone between it and the world beyond.

In human herding, the meme, the idea(l) can be used to externalize the center, producing the same effect.

Now we can give the two tendencies a new context to conceptualize, suing real life behaviours.

Realism places the idea outside all members, but does not make it the goal, but the orientation point, in relation to the world outside the swarm of bodies.
the members use it to direct themselves outward, towards reality, full of predators and unforeseen possibilities.
This is how traditionalism is used by pagans.

Nihilism does the opposite.
It places the unifying ideal, in some noetic, imaginary world, and makes the positive, the masculine the representation of it - esoteric.
Members move towards it, away from reality. They orient themselves but not to face the world, but to move away from it.
The periphery is the undesirable position....and they judge their progress by how close to a shifting center, they are.
This center is shifting because the representative is always changing.
The threat, is the negative....and it is always the world outside the fluctuating premises of the minds/bodies positioning themselves in relation to the ideal, which is always in someone's mind - theoretical.
Sometimes it is him, then her, then another....fashion trends.
The ideal changes symbols/words, but it always offers an alternative to reality to escape into.

Nietzsche may have diagnosed nihilism, finding it in his immediate environment as the Christian psychosis, but he failed to follow it to its source in a normal existential anxiety, of man relating to an unknown, threatening, fluctuating world, and further back in increasing randomness/chaos, in relation to any ordering made conscious of its condition would tremble, and seek refuge in other - return to the womb, through a return to the collective, and with sophistication a seeking refuge in the esoteric, idea, the detaching from reality ideal.

Christianity was but one such variation, one version, one idea(l), when detachment offers the possibility of infinite variations.
Variations that would seek validation in numbers, if not in self-blinding faith, projected, using symbols/word into a beyond to a beneath; projected into an alternate reality, or a secret, occult, internal one - subjectivity.
A method using symbol/word to compensate for the absence of references to be perceived and experienced - converting the symbol/word from referential representation of the real, to a point where the mind detaches and flees outward/inward into mystical realms - a magical portal.  
Overturning, in nihilism, is a matter of survival - all nihilism offers is an inversion.
An inversion of what it finds intolerable, because it is too much for the ego to take, or too little to satisfy its self-referential identifications.

Too much, or too little, and never good enough....never seeking in self the reasons for this feeling of dissatisfaction.
Always seeking it in others, in the very idea of otherness.

As a diagnostician he analyzed the symptoms that were closest to him, using language that was intimate to him - finding plenty of allegories in literature.
But did he seek the source of this dis-ease, or was he satisfied to measure the fever, the rash, the debilitating physical manifestations, using metaphors to protect the ailing from his prognosis?

The fabrication of a self-referential, esoteric ideology is easier because it is not bound by any exoteric limitations nor is it testable in relation to what is not within the willful control of the mind that fabricates it.
The ideal must only be attractive to other minds, with specific needs/desires.

Such an idea can be primal, hedonistic, using the sensation of pleasure as validation, can be simplistic seeking validation from simplistic minds, or it can be more complex, seeking a higher quality of mind, with more sophisticated needs, desires.
In the last case the idea must be detached from reality but self-referential in a consistent way - taking for granted some ambiguous absolutes, it has to fabricate a seductive and self-consistent detachment from reality - one that can rival existence itself, in challenge, and promise, while still denying the external world to contradict its principles.
Such an nihilism would be accompanied with specialized symbols and language, entirely in-harmony with itself, but in disharmony with the world outside the brain...often this would include the body.

This is what I call a pure noetic construct.

It has no references outside the brain, in fact it considers them base and unnecessary, and is entirely self-consistent and self-referential, raising this method as a empowerment, or a god-like sovereignty as creator of worlds.
The most important factor is the quantity and quality of minds you can attract, and make a part of this alternate reality.
Proselytizing is fundamental....and selective proselytizing ensures that your world is exclusive - elitist.
Realism, and Paganism places the standard of evaluating self, and others, outside self.
Self, and others, are judges by this same standard, which is natural in that you can judge other species outside any memetic corrupting effects.
An example is how realism defines 'fitness' - reproductive success.
I define all my terms using this method.

For instance, morality is defined using observable, testable behaviors that span species boundaries, and i define beauty similarly, holding myself, and others, accountable to a standards not of my making, but as belonging outside my own personal needs, desires - spanning both memetic and species boundaries.

The proper usage of language is about clarifying shared experienced phenomena.
Therefore, convincing others, or being popular, is insignificant, because the shared affects us all whether we accept it, or deny it, or not....whether we are aware of it or not.
All languages refer to such external natural order, and are not arbitrary in their development. they may become corrupted, or used inappropriately, but this is usually a sign of cultural decline, and of ulterior motives - motives other than connecting to the real, and clarity.

There are plenty of options available to the ones who want to escape the observable, experienced real, because in the mind the laws of physics, natural order need not be applied...but the road towards clarity is difficult and limited in options.
The world dictates what is right and what is wrong, and linguistic conventions founded on the real, restrict how symbols/words can be applied.

Inventing a new word, may display a concept that has never been considered, but it cannot contradict what is experienced, nor appropriate the words already in use, to imply something that they do not.  

For example, Heidegger invented the term Dasein, as shorthand for thrown into the world, which expresses the experience of awakening to a world where self is part of the unknown...and it does not imply a clean slate, or blind chance, as some morons insist on doing, to satisfy their psychosis regarding their desire to escape the past, or to detach themselves from the immutable and the determined because this implies some devastating, to them, probabilities.

It's more challenging to make yourself attractive, than to declare yourself attractive, changing the definitions to satisfy your needs/desires, and then justify the change as being 'higher understanding' or occult knowledge only the special can fully appreciate, hoping to attract all the uglies that are hoping for a excuse and a way out of their predicament of being born unattractive.

The mind of the psychotic, finding in this degenerate display of slave-morality a sense of pride.
Spartacus, is, for the slaves, the Messiah - the collective identity.
The psychotic can only believe agreement can be a product of coercion, or a product of collective insanity, a shared faith, creating a shared sense of self.

The idea of a shared reality, an objective world, producing shared judgments, cannot be computed.
It can only be a result of exploitation, plagiarism, or seduction.
How can two minds agree, and reach its agreement from independent directions?
How can different paths lead to the same destination?

The destination must be pleasing, otherwise why would anyone want to go there?
Why would more than one, do so?

The modern is baffled.
It cannot comprehend, so it must use itself as a standard, and so conclude that there must be some self-serving, hedonistic, self-flattering reason?
Who would place the standard outside himself, unless he thought he met it?
Who would put himself through such a test?

Not the modern, that's for sure.

"I", refers to the subjective.
"Self" is the objectification of this "I", connecting it to a continuum vanishing into the immutable past.
"Ego", would be a qualification of "Self" - as the dynamic "I" becoming aware of itself - the tip of the Self" that turns inward.

An animal has a sense of "I", but no ego.

The organic emotion of love is the equivalent of the inorganic force of attraction, which signifies a relative harmony between two phenomena.
It's opposite would be hatred, corresponding to the force of repulsion, which is always present in the relationship between phenomena, no matter how in-harmony they might be.

But the concept of love, in those terms, has a curious advantage, over hatred, because it allows the possibility of a living death. An idea embodied in losing yourself in otherness, or immersing the distention of self, into a greater unity, of a collective that can be given any name, but that has as its most popular designation the name of a one-god.
It is this idea of being alive, in other, while dead as self, that reminds us of the zombie metaphor.
A condition that synthesizes the drive for life (eros), and the drive for death (thanatos), but inevitably becomes, for the majority, characterized by the former and not the latter.

Nihilistic inversion, from Pagan traditions, to Abrahamic ones, is best represented by the flip from paternal to maternal lines of identification.
Christianity breaks the bonds of the patrilineal continuum, placing an idea(l) in the form of an absolute abstraction of fatherhood in between the child and his biological father, converting him into a representative of the ‘true’, spiritual father, God. His new role is that of corporeal lesser father.
This break is not only reflected in the Abrahamic Biblical tale of sacrificing one’s one and only begotten son, but in the tale of the tale of Jesus taking the apostles away from their families, to become followers of an idealized family, with an idealized father.
Judaism applies a direct breach from masculinity, not only in the ritual of circumcision, but in the bloodline being passed through the mother – matrilineal.
This is a psychological break, affecting the child on a deeper level.
Jewish, and Islamic, as well as traditional Christian enforcement of strict rules upon the female’s sexual behaviour, indicates a preservation of her spiritual cleanliness, and worthiness for God’s harem.
The male ‘soils’ her, once he is approved, or has proven himself clean enough by the peer group’s authority.
Biological masculinity is really a proxy for the one and only true maleness, which is the Divine penis, and in these Nihilistic spiritual traditions, males act on behalf of this divine penis.
The tale of Christ’s mother’s impregnation, and the cuckolding of Joseph by the Holy penis. Joseph’s behaviour is the expected behaviour of an emasculated man.
He becomes a worshiper of the penis that intruded upon his own potential fertilization of her ovum, and then participated in hiding the secret, and raising the offspring as his own.
The message is clearly directed to all pious men who wish to gain the good graces of their alpha. They are to be God’s soldiers, protecting the harem from intrusion and from escape.
Mental eunuchs, who are given the privilege of keeping their own penis, in the service of a Masculine spirit that has none of his own.
The offspring does not really belong to the biological male, but to the one and only male. The mentally castrated, symbolically, is to raise his children according to the beliefs and principals of this one and only Male.
He, the castrated male, is not the conduit to the child’s ancestry, but a figurehead representing God that has no ancestry. He is the beginning and the end – alpha and omega.
Biological males surrendering themselves sot this concept are neither alphas nor omegas, but surrogate females.

Jung on his assessment of Freud and his differences.
Jung, Carl wrote:
Since each individual conforms more or less to a type, his testimony can be accepted as a fairly valid description of a large number of people. And since those who conform to other types belong none the less to the human species, we may conclude that the description applies less fully, to them too. What Freud has to say about sexuality, infantile pleasure, and their conflict with the ‘principle of reality,’ as well as what he says about incest and the like, can be taken as the truest expressions of his own psychic make-up. He has given adequate form to what he has noted in himself. I am no opponent of Freud’s; I am merely presented in that light by his own short-sightedness and that of his pupils.  [Modern Man in Search of a Soul]

Feud's Jewishness seeps into his psychological theories.
Incest, an obsession with being the mother's lover, exposes a Matrilineal focus that sees the father as someone that humbles and stands in the way.
A presence that denies the boy, in the case Freud, access to mother's portal back to be reborn as someone else.
The father proves to be lacking the majesty of the divine Father, making the young boy dream of a better figure to grow up emulating, or he lords over the young mind, proving to be too much to overcome, and to attain the prize.
The castrated boy wants to be reborn whole.

Jung, Carl wrote:
As for Freud’s idea of the ‘super ego,’ it is a furtive attempt to smuggle in his time-honoured image of Jehovah in the dress of psychological theory.  [Modern Man in Search of a Soul]
Psychosis shaped over centuries of shared history, producing shared traditions, and common reactions to existence.

Jung, Carl wrote:
I do not doubt that the natural instincts or drives are forces of propulsion in human life, whether we call them sexuality or will to power; but I also do not doubt that these instincts come into collision with the spirit, for they are continually colliding with something, and why should not this something be called spirit? I am far from knowing what spirit is in itself, and equally far from knowing what instincts are. The one is as mysterious to me as the other, yet I am unable to dismiss the one by explaining it in terms of the other. That would be to treat it as a mere misunderstanding....
A further difference seems to me to consist in this, that I try to free myself from all unconscious and therefore, uncriticised assumptions as to the world in general. I say ‘I try’, for who can be sure that he has freed himself from all his unconscious assumptions?  [Modern Man in Search of a Soul]
Jews bury their theories in the hidden occult of the esoteric where they cannot be disproved, therefore saving themselves the trouble of having to prove.
They rely on using themselves as a standard for manipulating those who closest resemble them, and to make all resemble them, so as to broaden their power base.  
They are salesmen, pitching a product to 'suckers', driving a wedge between fools and their money, or whatever it is that they covet.  
Jung exposes his own weakness with his intentional desire to remain ignorant about what instinct and spirit means - exposing a Christian disposition to merge the animal within the divine, by sacrificing it.
Presuming his own exposure he explains it as an unwillingness to resolve the issue as a matter of "misunderstanding", let alone a misinterpretation of words.
Freud exposed himself in his theory on sexuality, Nietzsche in his 'Will to Power'.
Choosing symbols/words exposes your relationship to world, to existence. It shows where the wound lies, revealing itself indirectly.

An individual is a collective unity, held together by memory, linking it to a past it is ignorant of.
Every cell, participating in every organ, is an independent organism, evolved to become assimilated in a codependent unity.
The mind awakens to this symbiosis, as if it were discovering an alien otherness.
The division of mind from body or consciousness from self-consciousness is this awakening, Heidegger calling it Dasein, as becoming aware of this multiplicity of self, within a multiplicity of otherness – existence.
Every cells communicates with the central processor, called brain, through the nervous system, as a collective of similar cells, participating in an organ, with specific functions, freeing other cells to specialize in other functions – synergy.
Belonging to a collective does not liberate it from the world, because it is also interacting with existence, while participating in an organism that is also interacting with existence.
Cells have no nervous systems, and no brains, so they cannot communicate with the brain using imagery, words, symbols, but only send neural pulses, bio-energy, with specific rhythms to transmit data.
The brain interests this data, in combination with data streaming into it from the outside the organism – world.
Both the internal and the external data merge into unities we call sensations.
Cells carry no symbols/words, images, so it adopts those coming from external sources.
Dreams are mostly internal data dominating the mind when it is closed off from external sources.
It borrows imagery to represents internal issues, such as disease, stress, repression, trauma, in combination with the organism's daily routines, harvesting imagery, data, relating and being challenged by external phenomena.
Dreams are always metaphorical, insinuating, never clear, direct, obvious, because internal sources lack reasoning, and simply adopt the individual's immediate experiences to reveal internal issues.
Cells also carry centuries of memories in the form of DNA.
Jung called these the collective unconscious, and they also express themselves indirectly, by borrowing imagery, symbols/words, or by merging into combinations of data – abstractions.
The artist taps into this data, bringing it into clarity.
He externalizes the abstraction by converting it to imagery, symbols, others can relate to, because these memories also exist in them, as part of a shared genetic past, using a shared pool of symbols, and traditions, imagery, metaphors, memetic past – species.
Genetic memories carry the entire gamut of past experiences, remaining latent, until triggered, or being too subtle communicating with the brain in what is called intuition.

Reputation of the insightful one goes through three stages.
First, they ridicule him.
Second, he is assaulted personally.
Third, they claim to have been aware of the insights all-along.

Nihilism's self-referential nature, and its dependence on others to validate what they cannot, forces them to become passionately combative.  
In the absence of a realist to challenge their delusions, because a realist requires no validation from other minds, his ideas are either more or less validated, are more or less correct in relation to an indifferent to all interpretations world, and by application, these nihilists turn on each other.
Then it becomes a competition over who is more mad, and whose madness is most inspiring and popular among minds like their own.
It becomes a fight over how many crazies and how much insanity they can gather.

I believe this mirrors  fish schooling, birds flocking, animals herding.
Immersing one's self in uniformity of individuals that have made some degree of self-sacrificing to survival.
Insanity feels safe within an asylum - institutionalization. It disappears among those that display varying forms of irrational behaviours. Philosophically, the absurd becomes less so when compared to an extreme level of absurdity - then it seems more rational.
Modern systems are a kind of organized madness.

The power of symbols/words remains psychological.
They represent a transmission of data from inside one skull, one subjective interpretation of an objective reality, across a medium, space/time, and into another skull, with its own subjective interpretations of reality, or a mind void of such interpretations.
The transmission can create a mass agency of minds in general agreement, converting this interpretation to action, behaviour.
But this still does not mean the particular interpretation has anything to do with reality, something those sharing in a false, or weak, interpretation will soon discover.

The accuracy of an interpretation of reality, is not by how many other minds you can convince, or animate using its principles. It is by the costs/benefits, in relation to the projected objective, expectations.
These can be spin-doctored or denied, or blamed on some other entity,. but they cannot be rejected.
Benefits, but more so costs, need no acknowledgement by the mind that enjoys or suffers them.
They are the consequences of an applied theory.
The individual suffers them whether it likes it or not, whether it knows it or not.

As with all things human, symbols/words can be used to differentiate, which is another way of saying to clarify, or they can be used to assimilate, which is another way of saying to make obscure, to mystify.
Sometimes we use different words for the same concept, for the same phenomenon, or where the difference is but a nuanced subtlety, adding degree, a detail, making it more clear in this way.

The word 'need' for example, as I use it, in connection to a sensation, in reaction to world, indicates a relationship of subjective, interpreting mind/consciousness with objective world.
The word refers to the feeling of depletion, due to the attrition produced by (inter)activity, which is another way of saying existence.
Organism awakening to existence feels need, due to its dependence on order.
Organism is order-ing, and need is the product of this - it is the feeling of existing.
Need is another way of saying 'stress'.
Brain, as part of the nervous system, evolved to deal with stress.
To direct, hold in the ready, control nervous energies.
Need is the depletion of nervous energies, exposing a physical necessity not being satisfied.
it warns the organism that something must be taken care of.

This is the natural consequence of being "thrown into the world", and because 'world' means existence, and existence means (inter)activity, need is the awakening to existing.
Needs left unsatisfied for a period of time, dependent on the particular constitution, its metabolic rates, of the organisms, result in what we refer as 'suffering' or 'pain'.
These words refer to extreme need, or needs reaching a critical point, indicating a severe depletion of energies, or attrition threatening the unity, the organism, such as a wound, illness, draining the organism of energies, or so severe that they exceed the energies readily available to the organism.

But need, ironically, produces a second type of stress.
Stress of abundance of energies.
To differentiate the two I use the term 'desire' to represent these.
Need, due to constant attrition, depletion of energies, or due to a threat on the unity of the organism produces movement, action directed, by the will, towards sources of satiation.
If this movement is successful, the organism assimilates and stores excess energies,in the form of 'fat' in the physical body, or as standby nervous energy for the fight/flight mechanism.
These later produce mitosis - cellular division.
In single-cell organisms we call this reproduction, but in multi-cellular organisms we call this growth.
growth occurs when the organism has excess, to its needs, energies that can be automatically be dedicated towards increasing its hold on time/space - increasing its physical dimensions...or into moving within time/space, expanding its range within world.
In more complex organisms these excess energies are also stored for multi-cellular, heterosexual, reproductive purposes - we call these libidinal.
In females it takes the form of an ovum, and the uterus lining placed as nutrition for a possible fetus, resulting in menstrual cycles.
In males it takes the form of sperm, stored in the scrotum, which results in desire, a stress produced by holding in ready all this nervous energy.

Now need, product of lack, produces need, or desire, product of excess.

One is directly linked, is the byproduct of the other - one is driven to consume, to appropriate, to assimilate, and the other, with the excessive energies the first produces, is driven to expunge, to expand, increase, to release.
One is implosive and the other explosive.

Need/Suffering, Desire are words referring to internal sensations, organic subjective reactions to an indifferent objective world in flux.
Flux = (inter)activity.
Need/Suffering is not a universal truism, to be used to define cosmos as a whole.
The world neither lacks not needs, nor has excess anything.
What would it have excess in relation to?
Non-existence?
Some referring to the constant (inter)activity, in other words energies, call it overflowing.
But this implies a containment, and a state of non-interactivity, in other words of non-existence.
Non-Existence is its own definition - it refers to what is not existent.
Existence IS (inter)activity...it is not that which is (inter)active, implying a separate thing that can either be (inter)active or static.
In relation to an organism, with limited energies to keep its unity of patterns intact, the comic constant (inter)activity may seem as excessive, as superfluous...and because it can only conceptualize in absolutes, it imagines cosmos as a contained whole, with ambiguous outer boundaries one can exceed.
Furthermore, cosmic constant expansion of time/space is related to by the organism as a form of growth. It can only understand it using itself as a standard and concludes that it is conscious, or that it is some god with infinite energies, constantly growing, overflowing with energies.
If it reaches that level o f intelligence, it conceptualizes universe in organic terms, because it can only comprehend the alien by using what is most intimate - the unknown can be made known by naming it, by conceptualizing it in terms that are known - using self, or what one knows of it, as a metaphor that is then taken literally.

The cosmos is neither perfect, nor imperfect.
It is neither one, nor nil.
Neither good, or bad.
These are representational artistic, metaphorical concepts that are taken literally, to describe what is other, by using what is self as a mirror.

World is Flux, it is process, it is constant (inter)activity.
These concepts are tools used to make sense of the world.
To make sense of it the brain uses its own processes as a standard - on/off neural switching, producing a binary code, and dualism - good/bad as the most primal form of discrimination, of consciousness...because consciousness is discrimination.
To be aware one makes clear, and to make clear one differentiates, holds forth; pulling closer the object of interest, leaving behind all the rest. 'Bringing into the light', is a metaphor meaning to hold in consciousness, to focus, and because an predator like homo sapient uses eyesight, the light becomes a metaphor for being aware, for making aware, for un-covering from beneath darkness.
Consciousness IS discrimination.
This is how the brain creates singularities, absolutes.
It discriminately separates the thing of interest from the rest, from what is not of immediate interest.
It focuses.
Higher consciousness means higher, more refined, more detailed, more nuanced, discrimination - it means seeing divergence where the less consciousness only see uniformity, sameness.

Need indicates depletion of energies, which exposes dependence.
It is a weakening.
It is the sensation of energies being lost to the organic unity, due to constant (inter)activity.
Need is quintessentially the sensation of living.

Sexually this is felt, judged, as a weakness.
We say 'he is needy' to indicate severe dependence with no alternate sources of satisfaction.

Bad Boy Factor = a male with alternatives.
This is expressed as an indifference for the particular female.
Instinctively she perceives this as power, and finds it attractive.
Confidence produced by having more than one way of satisfying a need or gratifying a desire - higher independence.

Non-Principled Principle
The modern degeneration of Communist opportunism; placing self, survival, above all else: dignity, beauty, the superior.
Resulting in the memetic equivalent of Culture of no Culture - Americanism.
All is levelled down to a uniformity of taste - lowest-common-denominator, for the sake of inclusion into the safety net.
All is for sale.
Pride, Dignity, Reality, Nature, Honesty, Honour, Decency.
Hedonism placed on a pedestal. The feeling of well-being, at all costs.
The feeling of surviving, of being alive at any price, at any cost.
Ideals and Principles malleable to shifting dynamics.
Feminine pragmatism: surrender to the most popular, to the strongest.

Moderns are so afraid of exposing themselves to reality that they cannot admit things, like the fact that need is a weakness.
Weakness does not mean something to be ashamed of.
Bravery is not the absence of fear.
The absence of fear is either due to a brain condition, sociopath, or it is the product of ignorance.

Courage is controlling your fears.
It is, actually, far more demanding and ennobling than absence of anxiety/fear.  

Weakness is the living condition, man awakens to.
He is ignorant, weak, and this motivates him.
What is shameful is surrendering to weakness, succumbing to ignorance.
Need is weakness....yes...and?
Need is dependence on something and/or someone...and?
Life is a movement towards an ideal.
If it is independence then you move towards it, step by step, not by denying it, and pretending you re already independent. This makes you more dependent.
Denying what you are, surrenders you to it.  

Need is weakness, so?
One must incrementally become less needy, more independent, more self-sufficient, more powerful.
A weakness motivates.
Being unfit forces you to exercise and become stronger, more fit.
Calling it a strength is how you demotivate yourself.  
Calling ugliness beauty is how one comfort one's self.
Saying that it is subjective feels good, but it isn't true.

Admitting your weaknesses, your imperfections is the first step towards correcting them, if you can, or coming to terms with them, if you cannot, and then developing compensating traits.
Pretending you have none settles you exactly where you are.
Declaring yourself this or that, is stagnation.
This is why the absolute is a existential end, no different from absolute nil.
The absolute is a finality, an END.
Redefining words to make yourself feel better, does not help you resolve the issue.

Nihilistic psychosis works on this premise:
If you can think of an idea(l), it is a possibility.

If it feels good thinking of the idea(l), then it is validated, it is empowering.
If you are passionately obsessed with the idea(l), then it is invigorating, a positive.

From the premises of a negative....since there is no absolute gnosis, no omniscience, then if you cannot disprove an idea(l), it is just as possible as any other.
It begins with EVERYTHING is possible...and you must disprove it to discount it from the list of possibilities.
Classic TOP<>DOWN "thinking".
Words have a magical power, the brain is god creator.
God is dead...so man is now God. He declares things into existence, and he declares things out of existence - first came the word, and the word was human, and the word was good.

The irony of the conundrum.
If you declare an absolute, the other must disprove it absolutely...ergo "There is absolute no absolute" begins with the moron's declaration of it, forcing an equal negation.
The moron declares an absolute, then to negate it one must negate it absolutely, resulting in the paradox that is based on the first presumption.
So, to negate the one, if it is taken literally and not as a representation, you must do so with nil.
Both 1/0 are representations, symbols with no external reference. they exist only in the mind as an abstraction that can be used to refer to anything, it's only restriction being the dictionary.
To negate ghosts to a believer in ghosts, is to first accept the reality of ghosts, and if you cannot disprove them absolutely, then they remain, in his mind, a possibility, as possible as any other theory.
Nihilists always have a holy, mystical text, a sacred book, to refer and defer to.
Nihilism being only noetic, ideology, existing only as symbols/words. There's always a sacred text, or a hidden universe, or some holy figure, a sacred icon...a corporeal manifestation of the idea(l).....but he or she is conveniently always dead, and buried, existing, in the minds of worshippers, as perfect idols.
Spiritual Nihilism is spirituality of the BOOK, by the Book, for the people of the Book - Abrahamism.
There's always some mystical text, some sacred religious Book(s), because nihilism is entirely linguistic - semantics, exploiting morons, and manipulating feeble-minded nit-wits.  

Realism requires no such Book, nor does Paganism, because it refers directly to world.
Books are written about the world, they are not a gateway to an alternate world.
Languages can all sue their own symbols/words because the reference point is the same.
Whether you call ti a 'dog' or 'chien', or 'skylo' is irrelevant, because all these symbols/words refer to a real phenomenon, a real organism.
That's its standard, its starting point, from where it moves upward and downward...towards the idea(l), and towards the spiritual, the metaphysical.

Realism does not give a shit if you do not believe in dogs, or you think they are more than what they appear to be, or if you think the apparent dog is really a hidden monster, one requires a special word, found in a special book, to fully understand; realism does not give a shit if the idea of a dog is popular or if the majority believes is these creatures,. as they appear to be.
That's your problem.

Realism uses words to refer to world...and all exist within the world, whether they know it or not, whether they accept it or not.
How schizophrenics cope, or what they see or hear, is his problem. What a narcissist thinks or feels, is his problem. How any psychotic deals with world, or how he perceives it, is his problem.
But the problem is, psychotics can be exploited by the system...and this is how we have post-modernism....never-mind all those ideologies that exploited morons throughout the ages...Abrahamism (Judaism = Christianity, Islam), Marxism, Trasnhumanism...and on and on the list grows.

Why do realists care about what nihilists think?
Why do they even bother to confront them?
Because of Democracy.
These morons vote.
They determine the environment realists are forced to live in, alongside them.

If it were not for this fact, they would not give a flying fuck what some degenerate imbecile uses to cope with reality.

Democracy declines from demo-cracy to ochlo-cracy.
Quality is drowned out by quantities of sheltered morons with rights and equal privileges, demanding respect and consideration.
If they lived on their own, where their idiotic ideologies only affected them Realists, true Pagans would not give a shit what they say and do.

Inversion of Metaphors
When artificiality replaces natural order, Utopian idealism converts to Dystopia, and myth ceases to transport {μεταφορά} the real to the ideal, but transports the ideal to the real, through the projections of mind.

He who truly loves, also passionately hates those who make of his love a plaything.
He who is order, despises those who worship it forgetting its gradations and its nullification.
They make a mockery of the sacred, presenting it as a matter of self-assertion and self-referential self-flattery.

Order is difficult to attain and more so to maintain.
Those who are prone to chaos, declare it as belonging to them, whereas those who know order and its struggles, never forget about chaos.

Do we not accuse others of what we fear most in ourselves?
Metaphor.
Do we not transport our weaknesses to another, to unburden ourselves from their stress?
Does not the feeble mind, the coward pronounce the identity he wishes to be seen as, but secretly knows he can never be?

A sign so predictable in its appearance that all one must do is wait for the other to declare himself, passionately stating what he 'is' or 'ought' to be in the eyes of those who fail to see it.
Weakness is presented in the pretense of strength, because strength needs no pronouncements.
All recognize it when it appears.

One obsesses over what one lacks the most, or what threatens him the most.
