Having been rejected the mind pulls back and inward to recuperate. There it is trapped, a solitary world, in antithesis to a disproving world.
When it ventures forth it does so under the banner of its inversion. The world's disapproval becomes its disapproval of it; the other's shaming rejection becomes its proud rejection of other.

Liberation from the mental disorder we've identified as Nihilism constitutes a paradigm shift, from absolutist 'thinking/emoting' to fluid thinknig.
A shift from [You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]...from idealism to reality, to from reality, empiricism, towards idealism.
From mind towards body,to from body towards mind, where mind is a extension of body and not the body an extension, or a creation of mind.

This requires a more artistic, flexible mind that can differentiate between art and reality, or the represented from the representation.
This requires a counter-intuitive ability, that appreciates what intuition is, and can use it to go beyond it without going insane: succumbing to the temptation to go extreme, to rebel against reality itself, to detach from world because it feels good.
The brain is an ordering organ, that can only sample collect order - patterns; simplifying/generalizing them into abstraction. Brain can only use binary 1/0, on/off methods to understand a world where randomness is part of the flux, but is also fluid and not dualistic.  

The temptation to escape inside the brain, in the mind, is too powerful to resist, for the majority.
This is why Nihilism is powerful, and popular.  
Only a rare type can resist. This makes resistance to the Nihilistic dis-ease problematic, because quantity drowns quality in an enclosed and sheltering environment.
The masses will never and can never resist Nihilism.
The enemy uses them as proxies.
So, this Nebulous War, like no other, is a war over the hearts and minds of mediocrity.
This forces us to adopt the enemy's tactics.
We cannot rally he average, the simpletons, like the enemy can. The masses can never accept a world that exposes them to what is unflattering, dangerous, uncompromising...
Like women and children, they will always side with the liar who promises the most, who flatters and comforts them...who offers them hope, or an escape, an excuse.

This is the great challenge of our time:
How do we adopt feminine methods, those that work and have worked among the majority of simpletons throughout history, without losing ourselves in the pretence?
How do we fight a mental virus, manipulating human feebleness, amassing great following based on word-games and lies?

It used to be that stress broke the simpleton away from the mesmerizing lie he was force-fed....leading to great wars, but the enemy has adjusted and is now providing sheltering and comfort, establishing an artificial environment of abundance, and a protective shield.
The masses cannot be shocked into awakening, even briefly. They wallow in hedonistic lethargy, content and unable to risk their superficial pleasures, willing to swallow any lie that perpetuates the narcotic myth.
They do not care about integrity, reality, they only care about getting-by, coping, making their miserable existence as comfortable as possible.

How do you train an animal?
Not coercion....fear and pain can be counterproductive, and stress comes out in the product.

You use treats and caresses.
In time the animal associates the expected, desirable, behaviour with gratification, and appreciation.
Manimals are no different.
ideas have to be gratifying, immediately, and acknowledging...all-inclusive.

Positive Nihilism: a lie that offers immediate and certain satisfaction and also offers inclusivity...all can partake equally, nobody is left behind.
Who can resist such an ideology/spirituality?

This is what happens when your imagination exceeds reality, and you acquire everything you ever wanted only to discover how empty and unable to meet your expectations it was, from the beginning.
This is what happens when you live in your head, building artificial worlds, characters, realities.

The real world cannot compete with the mind's creativity.
Mind can manipulate space/time, can synthesize and de-synthesize, at will, with a simple thought.
When it detaches from world, because it can and it is adequately protected from world to have that luxury, it can live in its own spectacular subjective world.
But then this becomes too easy, too stale.

Towards the singular oneness of humanity one flees from one's self, standing in the multiplicity, the abyss the Greeks named chaos (χαος).
Collectivism exposed as the feminine womb being penetrated and fertilized by masculine individualism.

If hate is the product of fear, then love is the narcotic that prepares to surrender to fate.

The female collective denies the masculine his individuality, his standing apart, to make his penetration less threatening, and her surrender less revealing.
The masculine individual denies the feminine collective her dominance, her attractive source, to make his need less obvious, and his desire less demeaning.

Rejection of the objective world, denial of the real, is a way of hiding a subjective vulnerability in relation to it.

The talentless hide their artistic inferiority in abstractions; the idiotic hide their lack of intelligence in linguistic innuendos and their lack of integrity in esotericism; the degenerate hide their essence in moral nihilism or in morality projected 'outside' the observable into the mystical realm of the supernatural; the ugly hide their obvious deformities in denying beauty an aesthetic standard, denying their own eyes; the coward cynically dismisses courage, the loveless mystifies 'love', the sexually frustrated turns to depravity to slander what he cannot attain....the list goes on.

Oh humanity, how you beckon to be exploited by those who are shameless enough to find value in doing so; how you seek to be tricked by refusing to acknowledge what is revealed to you through your own senses.
Fear so deep you must lie to give yourself false hope.  
To what ends will you go?
All for naught. You cannot escape the world except in death, and then of what purpose was your life given to?
Escape? Hedonism? Self-Deception?

What a waste.

All male.
The hormonal soup that turns the female fetus into a male, and pushes the psyche to prove itself, to stand-out, to be worthy of eternity can produce a monster that cannot differentiate between the noumenon and the phenomenon.
Cannibalism is tied to the desire to possess, to dominate and appropriate the world.  
Anti-social behaviour a by-product of thinking outside the box.
Genius and insanity separated by a tiny margin.

The disposable sex has evolved the chemistry of excess.
With no strong feminine presence, outside or inside, a lens to focus the energy, madness follows...and a desire to quiet it, using drugs, alcohol, fantasy when other means are absent or lacking....hyperbole.
Internal chaos unable to give itself order, confusing abstractions for reality, seeing ghosts and chimeras everywhere. Such turmoil can become self-destructive.  
Existence opening up and pressuring the mind to the breaking point.

The basics...from a female reading by-the-book.



Empathy is not sympathy.
The ability to disassociate self from the other, is an advancement of empathy that makes males good hunters, because they have to empathize with the prey in order to predict its behaviour.
Females must sympathize so that they can fit in or 'read' the other, as part of their social inclusion, facilitating their sexual role. They are in-the-box thinkers...genius in empathizing and reading subtle cues.



Narcissists, if not born, are created by Modernity.
[You must be registered and logged in to see this link.].

Nihilism creates narcissists as a by-product of its 'ideology', such as all are 'equal' and all is 'subjective' placing no the pedestal the ego, implying that it is God, now that there is no God, in the Abrahamic sense.
Humanity is the privileged species that is 'outside' the natural order (echoes of Judaic 'choseness')....is followed by the 'individual' is god, creator of his own private reality, answerable to nobody but himself.

Covert narcissist is the the type produced by Modernity, the Nihilistic ideology, because it is ideal for American individualism (capitalism).



Abrahamism is covert narcissism: the pretentious 'meek' who think they deserve eternal life and a god watching over them.
Outwardly victims who have repressed a compensating predatory arrogance.  
Personae/Character, or the dissonance of the exoteric in relation to the esoteric.



Replace the abstraction of resources, money, with the abstractions of reality, semiotics, and you've got a marketplace for narcissism to flourish.

He who teaches you how to find, on your own, and does not make of himself the mediator, the authority, through who you can achieve what you need, is the true teacher.
He who tells you of secret, occult, things you cannot experience, or translates experiences in ways that do not connect, refer, to anything you can observe, is not a teacher....but a charlatan.
He who is always positive, reassuring, with no reason, no argument, evidence, contradicting circumstances, is not a teacher.

Temper tantrums, passive agressivity, emotional vampires reveal the psychotic predator....the noetic virus.
They detach you from reality, conveniently convince you that your senses lie, and are not to be trusted, so that you transfer your trust to their words.
They declare the identity they are desperate to be, for you. They plant the seed by repeating the image, of themselves, they want to cultivate in you.
They do not show, they say.

Concern with emotional maliciousness, with bad intent or otherwise selfish/emotional pathology is a long term concern by its very nature. The manipulation in the moment offers promises, offers hope without giving - leads you on. In the immediate, when consumed in presence, intelligent appraisal is naught but a whisper. Manipulating fear is much more powerful among the weak willed, where a lack of intelligence only makes it easy.

Hate is a reaction to the unknown other, a direct product of fear.
Love is an indirect reaction to the same.
Love deals with existential anxiety by surrendering to other, taking a risk by evaluating other as similar to self, and ignoring what is dissimilar.
What is known of self is projected upon the alien other, reducing anxiety by converting the strange to what is most intimate.
Love is the necessary cost for the unavoidable fact of mortality.
It first evolves as lust, breaking down the need to preserve self into the desire to belong to other, become a synthesis of self with other, or to assimilate other, make of other a means for propagating self, splitting the two sexes into two distinctive psychological types.

Underestimating self is a reaction to an unknown other, a direct product of insecurity. The other looms large, forcing the ego to seek refuge is self.
Overestimating self is an indirect reaction to the same. The ego inflates absorbing self and other into its mass.

What is unknown triggers an overestimation, potential error leaning on the side of caution, but underestimating the unknown other is a compensating hyperbole attempting to take advantage of self-invigorating pretenses to have a psychological effect on this mysterious other, which is presumed to be affected no less by the unknown.
Other becomes a reflection of self leading to the conclusion that all is subjective.
If the repercussions are not experienced the ego remains inflated, engorged, to the point of excessive energies ready to explode in a final burst of procreative and self-destructive energy. The slightest contact with the real becomes risky, in this inflated state.
Its outer boundaries stretched thin and made hyper-sensitive.
What is other and what is self becomes vague, a thin translucent membrane allowing light to pass through, making minimal contact with becoming.
Ego is now a fragile soap bubble, floating on fluctuating streams, numbing itself to endure all contact with otherness. Each interaction risks disillusionment.
Seeking protection among the similar is the only option left.
A foam gathers, with the usual rules of flocking, schooling, herding, taking precedent over all other natural forces.
A coveted, theoretical, middle ground is now the ultimate idea(l), the shared ambition of a 'whole'.

I wouldn't say hate is necessarily a product of fear.

There are things I hate that I don't fear, and things I fear I don't hate.

For example, I hate mosquitos but don't fear them, and I fear tigers but don't hate them.

Or you can say that I fear mosquitos too only to a much smaller degree, and technically that is true, but still the point is that my hate towards them is disproportional to my fear (my assessment of how much of a threat they pose) as I hate them much more than I fear them, so there are some other factors at play which contribute to my hatred of them.

The reverse is true for tigers, I fear them much more than I hate them.

Anxiety is the sensation, and fear its extreme.

Hate is also associated with nausea...an automatic reaction to toxicity that may develop into anxiety and then fear.
Anxiety is reduced with more habituation and understanding of the alien other.

This modern obsession with fear, or accusing anyone who challenges their delusions, or contradicts their lies, of being afraid, like -homo-phodia, trans-phodia, xeno-phobia, simply exposes the underlying emotion in their own pseudo-intellectual, 'altruistic' idealism.  
A clear case of narcissistic projection.

In the above what is at work is nausea...which may develop into an anxiety concerning what cannot be avoided and is toxic.
Anxiety can develop into fear, and it is a given in all relationships with the other....how one deals with it is what makes the difference.
Anxiety/fear can be about what the other may deny him....i.e. life, health, or his companionship, support, knowledge, presence.

In the first case it is about what the other can take away from us, as something in our possession, and in the second it is about what he can withhold as belonging to him.
Both are a potential denial of what we need and covet, producing anxiety.

An, often denied hedonism rules over Modern idealism.
The undercutting idea that the individual will only accept, will dare to consider, only when it can offer him pleasure, or the potential for it.
There's no need to justify such a self-serving position. One can claim that its 'truth' is something internal, another way of saying 'subjective', or 'private', and leave it at that, allowing the other to use himself as a standard to speculate, only to have the speculation rejected, if it is insulting, or hurtful.  
The 'let's agree to disagree' is this tacit agreement to believe whatever each finds pleasing, validating their reasons using whatever self-serving standard each has adopted or constructed.
That's what 'subjectivity' or perspectivism, implies.
Not that each lives according to the consequences of his/her own perceptions, and judgements, because that's obvious to even a child, but that each will not be bothered by anything outside of this private world, if and when there's a community protecting him/her from the worse.
It's why most of these moderns are also fanatical about their altruism and social values. It's a way to ensure a protective sphere, the Golden Rule, where the individual agrees to step in and bear the burden, along with others, of one member's delusional idiocy, if the same will be reciprocated when the inevitable time comes.

Remaining as pleasant as possible, to others, is one way of ensuring it for one's self, because most forms of pleasure either involve another, or depend on another.
Sycophants are investing in their future relevance.  
This is why most 'popular philosophers' paint a picture of a 'positive', for the majority, world, or mask the real world in innuendos and poetic hyperbole, offering comforting and hope.
The essence of esotericism is the secret truth, versus the stated truth. Oftentimes there is no hidden secret except ego and desire, begging for gratification and appreciation.
Placing one's own pleasure above honesty, willing to sacrifice anything, including integrity, to preserve their access to pleasure, or to life as the only way to feel pleasure, this is the shared ideal of Moderity.
Survival is placed above all other considerations, including the honest assessment of living. Suffering is then made into a threat one has to eradicate so as to purify existence of its pleasure-corrupting indifference.    

It's the 'making the world safe for morons and cowards' idealism.
Unfortunately, for them, the world cares not. Then they just find an external other to blame, because convictions and words used to justify the lies will change nothing, but only postpone it...and then, for how long?
The invention of a 'beyond' and then of a forever immanent future, always on its way, a perpetual pool of hope, was, and still is, a naive attempt to postpone the consequences indefinitely.
A self-pleasing mind game.

No internal dialogue, huh?
Hard to believe.
I think most simply conduct the dialogue using imagery, sensations, and not articulations.

Like animals.
An animal with no language cannot have an internal dialogue, so it must be constantly comparing sensations, visuals, sounds, textures, it has processed and stored.

Between the age of 16 and 19 or so I had quite a lot of inner monologue.
Too much for my own liking actually, or the wrong kind of monologue, too much analysing everything in a deconstructive way. Perhaps it was also due to certain influences.
By now I have very little inner monologue I'd say. But I think it's more like when you agree with somebody or yourself for that matter then you are not having endless discussions about everything.

Because a lot of discussions people are having are often about differences in taste or desires where one is trying to talk the other person into accepting their wishes with "rational" arguments and talking.

In that sense, a lot of inner monologue could also occur when somebody has intellectually and emotionally accepted a certain set of morals as true and good while they are not really a good fit for his/her constitution.
And so the intellectually capable is now talking and arguing with himself about lots of stuff because those holy morality cows cannot be slaughtered.

Dialogue is the product of a disagreement between the ideal and the real.
If there is no disagreement there is no internal turmoil - no conscience being triggered.

Harmony with the cosmic is melodious, but it can never be perfect/complete.

When the theory, the idea(l) is constantly reflected by the external real, there is no inner turmoil - only re-cognition.
What triggers thinking is when what you perceive is unexpected, or in conflict with the noetic.

In the conundrum I grasp a salient point and wrap myself in its possibilities, identifying it as my ego.
All else implodes into its gravity well, begging to keep on existing...for just one more year, month, day, hour, second...moment.
I sacrifice the real for its continuance, with the hubris of a god, and declare it sacred, giving it away as a compromise for conviction.

A god can only exist if he is believed in, and worshipped, out of fear and hope, the dual poles of the conundrum.

The body is more honest than the mind, because it is pure reactivity governed by centuries of memories.
Like a plant, it has a past and a present/presence, but no ability to project into future, so it can have no idea(l), other than that one constructed after centuries of trial and error, after countless interactions stored as code.

The mind can lie, can repress, can forget, can pretend...it can even convince itself that an error is really a fact.

This sets-up the mind/body conflict, increasing exponentially as the mind grows, increasing its effect, and control on the body.
Nihilism is rooted in this conflict of noumena and phenomena, the idea(l) and the real, the present, projected into future and the past manifesting as presence....the meme can contradict the gene, believing it can shape it through the power of conviction.
The alteration is partial, and will produce a counter-reaction, a psychosis, stressing the mind as the body fails to acquiesce to the mind's convictions.

In the fluctuating present is where the conflict occurs: past asserting itself on the projected idealized future.
A rupture may occur....the mind seeking relief in escape, in medication.
The ego may shrink or inflate to protect itself or to intimidate what it perceives as an external, alien, will....splintering ego from self.

The practice of using words to manipulate is one that follows the same rules as any training/taming, and is part of the ongoing sophistication of husbandry that recognizes patterns in behaviour, called the essence or nature of a species, though it may deny such a thing, when it comes to the human manimal, as part of the effectiveness of the technique when involved in human husbandry.

The carrot/stick method is effective....using coercion, the stick, without the carrot, the pleasure reward, creates an opposite reactive outcome.
The wannabe trainer/teacher, will use threats, a reprimand, a indirect insult before it rewards for proper behaviour, creating a noetic divergence in the mind of the trainee.
Indirect, not obvious threatening, insulting, retains plausible deniability and softens the blow on the ego, that may react to a direct attack by becoming defensive and so resistant to further training.
The threat is subtle....a withholding of something the subject considers valuable, that it needs.
Direction is given, linguistically, and then discipline to the direction, no matter how small, is accompanied with a reward...positive reinforcement, flattery, praise, an ego treat.
Gradually the trainee intuits the sequence and the degree of punishment/reward, modifying its behaviour to promote the positive reward, and minimize the punishment.

A modified approach to the same method is to imply there is a great reward hidden in what is defined obscurely.
The trainee is made to believe that he can avoid the punishment, the pain, if he dares to think in a proper manner, sacrificing reason, doubting his own senses, delving into the secret realities of the mind, where all is malleable and accessible with the 'proper' use of language....in other words the proper redefinition of words/symbols.
We must not underestimate the need/suffering of existence, and the inability of the majority, born and raised in sheltering environments, to cope with it.
Everyone, eventually, suffers a tragic loss, or a physical disease, testing his capacity to think clearly and honestly.
Hope, is the antidote to anxiety, and a good, plausible, lie is the only way a mind can deal with the truth. All he/she requires is the proper cajoling, prompting, directing to allow him to overcome the last flimsy vestiges of honesty and clarity. What use does such a mind have for it if it exposes him to pain and suffering, or to a reality that is hurtful, insulting, or so challenging that he's lost confidence in his own ability to overcome?
Such a spirit is primed for a 'awakening', an deserved 'enlightenment'....making the real less grave, less massive. The perfect and easiest way to achieve this is to 'change your 'perspective', your attitude, which is another way of saying 'redefine words', or detach them form the apparent and reattach them to the noetic, the positive ideal.

Binary logic, dualism, is based on cellular rhythms, metabolic cycles of systole/diastole = on/off.
On = positive
Off = negative

Either/Or
1/0 - one/nil
Phase of moving towards awareness, and phase of falling away form awareness - gnosis/ignorance.
Love/Hate
Light/Dark
Known/Unknown
Cycles of life, and of life's extension as civilization; genes and memes
Ascent/Descent
Attraction/Repulsion

Movement towards the known, positive, pulling/Movement away, negative, pushing.
In the Heart the systolic/diastolic phases engorge the heart with blood and then push it out, as the heart relaxes to begin the phase again.

With life the movement is wilful, intentional, moving towards what is judged as being most like self.
Attraction to what patterns participate in the organism.
Only higher consciousness can choose to move towards what offers more resistance, is less like self.
There are many motives for doing so, one of which is a projected higher-reward, due to the absence of competition. More resistance means less organisms will choose to move towards it.
With lower life-forms, such as plants, the path-of-least-resistance, still applies, with the added component of information, precedent, informing this movement.
Memory is what differentiate the living from the non-living.
Memory that need not be aware of itself. plants, like many animals, do not know why they behave the way they do....they just intuitively, instinctively, do so, directed by a subconscious knowledge they experience as drive, passion, need.

With non-life the movement is governed by the path-of-least-resistance.
What is more in harmony, in tune, with the pattern, has less repulsive energies, less friction caused by the disagreement of oscillations; what is more in harmony exhibits less friction, less resistance.

I've already offered my positions on how modernity produces and promotes [You must be registered and logged in to see this link.], so here are some institutionalized insights into this psychosis.



It's obvious that Modern alienation is a byproduct of institutionalized Narcissism, because the Narcissist needs impressionable, effete, needy spirit to dominate verbally.
A narcissist makes himself the path towards your self-awareness.
His path goes through him/her....through some internal path, implying his/her internal path....and never offers an independent path outward, externally, in relation to world that makes him/her irrelevant after the first steps are taken.
He will never teach Independence....but only dependence.
The logic, reasoning, is always unavailable to you, and his guidance becomes indispensable.
He oscillates between overt dominance, self-aggrandizing, brow beating, and friendliness, praise, comforting, when you turn away and he thinks he's losing control over you.
He always goes too far, his nature coming forth when he begins taking your presence and your worshipping of him for granted.
If you mange to detach yourself from their control they obsess over getting you back into their fold. He will not risk trying his shit on anybody, so if it has worked on you, it will work again.

In a nihilistic system that also cultivates, and promotes idiocy, because it is more malleable and controllable, narcissism can find a hard time differentiate itself from genuine superiority.
A clue is by how the narcissistic needs a following, a world to worship, appreciate him highly, and follow him, whereas a intelligent mind quickly evaluates and allows the idiot to continue on his way.
The narcissistic fishes in pools where he knows he will find needy fish to manipulate, and become, for them, a god.
An intelligent mind requires no following, in fact he may detest the responsibilities entailed in being that for others.
He never declares himself, hoping the declaration will impress become a judgment another will hold of him. He acts, and attracts unintentionally....like a sun attracts planets without intent.
When you reach to grasp, you expose a need, and any subsequent pretence of power fails.
The act takes precedence over the word.
You can be sure that anyone who tells you what you should think of him, by stating what he thinks of himself, is compensating for a fear that he might be the opposite.
