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.

Adaptation...
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.
One admires what is superior to his own evaluations of himself.

Prejudiced Perspectives
To the simpleton genius seems magical. To the genius a simpletons seems alien.
To the pessimist a realist seems naive. To the optimist the realist seems cynical.
To the ordered mind randomness seems evil. To the Chaotic mind order seems totalitarian.
To the one lacking order any mention of chaos is disheartening and hateful. To the one lacking chaos any mention of order is final and absolute.

To the naive dolt who only wants to see the silver lining, any mention of the dark cloud is terrifying and an attack.
To the crass nit-wit who only wants to see the dark cloud, any mention of a silver lining is absurd and a joke.

When among the naive optimists, the realist is like a fly in the milk: an alien element that spoils the perfection of the whole.
They live in absolute wholes - positive nihilists.
When among cynical pessimists, the realist is like a illuminating mirror in the dark: a disrespectful reminder of who they are.
They live in absolute fragmentation - pure nihilists.

Pagan realism stands in opposition to both – Hellenic balance.

Feminine spirits trap themselves within social, human contexts.
Their thinking begins and ends in relation to human, all too human perceptions of self within humanity, which is their way of understanding world.
Which exposes nihilism as a form of feminine entrapment within manmade constructs.
Females love words, symbols, and gestures. It's how they find themselves and evaluate themselves.

Know what's funny about men-children stuck on Nietzsche?
Most of them are drug-addicts, idolizing a man who didn't even drink wine.
New Age hippies, with a new version of sex, drugs, and rock n roll, worshipping a recluse who barely had sexual encounters, and did not drink or use any chemical substance, though he was suffering terribly.
New versions of those secular Christians, disenfranchised by all authorities, and by a world void of absolutes, including the one-god, finding in one another, and in communal escapism a form of herd relief.
I guess you can twist an idol's words to mean anything after he's dead.

Of course, there are many romantic excuses to justify drug-use, as there are to explain wine drinking, but it all starts with what these men-children deny: an internal lack.
If the world is too much or too little, then drugs can make it less or more so... for a while.
If you are a dullard and prone to melancholy, or un-creative, then alcohol can make you feel more creative, as one feels they can drive better after a few drinks.
All forms of inebriation either accentuate what you are, or they diminish it.
They never surpass it, or escape it.  
Those visions, feelings, sensations, that hidden sorrow or joy... was always there, and it was never more or less than what it is.
Those other-worldly, super-natural realms you enter under the influence, are all your doing.
They mean nothing to anyone, other than to you.
They are useful, inspiring, enlightening, to nobody but you.
They are that part you keep hidden, or you wilfully repress, or feel insecure about.  
That secret fear, that blustering arrogance, that flattery nobody seems to shower down on you, it's all there.
If you are an angry drunk, then anger is what you keep hidden.
If you tend to cry when high, or after a few drinks, then a deep sorrow is inside of you.
If you are joyful and open, then you hide that, when sober.
If you feel grand and a genius deserving accolades when under the influence, then this is what you crave in your sobriety.
Oh and... Cheers!

When an idea has an effect, it sparks a cascade of connections the mind senses as an awakening – an internal power spontaneously rising up to the surface, as if from nowhere.
Things that did not quite make sense, suddenly do so.  Things that were unstable, vague, are suddenly clear.
They are now obvious.
The mind cannot believe how it could have missed the signs, the relationships.
If it has an ego it believes it happened due to its own internal work, unable to accept an external source, to be grateful to – to feel beneath.
For other, sickly minds, the connections trigger a recoiling, falling back, a need to escape, to flee, to hide from the source.
It rests awhile, catching its balance, sitting down to recover, and to rest a bit. Then it looks for a defence, either in self or in some prescription that has worked, and tries to return to face the source of its dismay.
But rarely directly, never out in the open; always from the shadows, from its secret crypt, from behind a mask, from within the peer group it feels most warm within.
It cannot deny, nor forget the impact of the first encounter.
The source is now embedded in its psyche, as a memory, a splinter in the mind's eye, an itch it cannot reach, though it tries, halfheartedly afraid that an open wound will be found.
It sees the source everywhere, hears its voice; echoes of its words reverberate in the words of others.
It has no response, other than a collective condemnation, a shared antipathy for what cannot be denied, nor forgotten.
Once one knows, has seen, one cannot un-see the images, the real, and though he thinks he has forgotten, the same dreams visit him, the same unease follows him, the same anxiety accompanies him.
His words sound empty, his condemnations feeble, his past arguments lacking the gravity they once had; the sacred acumen gone.
Once an idol, the icon, has been exposed, he can never return to the pedestal from where he fell onto the muck – the one that knocked him over will be despised, slandered, attacked from afar... forever, and ever, renounced and ostracized, by a collective voice, though the sacred has been forever shattered by his hand.
What a tiny, insignificant price to pay, from his point of view.
He never considered himself part of the group that casts him out of their midst, as punishment, and what he left behind has changed them forever, and ever.

Without overemphasizing them the trio of gender, homosexuality and race, can be used as a litmus test to expose an ill mind - one infected with the memetic virus, feeding on its existential anxiety, and its pretentious ego - resentful arrogance, masking as humility and cynical indifference.

These three topics are on the forefront of modern social engineering.
Later paedophilia and bestiality will take their place, but for now these are the banners of social activism, as practiced by crypto-Marxists, post-modernists...or simply Moderns, as I call them.

They are a test of a mind's connection to natural order.
A test of how subjective, and how content to remain so they are.
A test of how much they are willing to sacrifice to survive, to self-numb, to remain blissfully ignorant.

Psychological differences between Realists/Pagans, and Nihilists/Abrahamist



*Sometimes the Nihilist thinks of himself as being a Realist, the Abrahamic as being a Pagan, because Nihilism is parasitical, and like all parasites it masks as the host; it appropriates from the host to cover its true essence so as to continue feeding off of it, consuming it from the inside out.
Best lie is the one the liar believes himself - therefore the best parasitical hypocrisy is based on self-deceit. Survival at all costs  - manimals.

Positive Nihilists

>Nihilist validates his convictions against others - preferably of his own kind - like-minded.
The other is the mirror reflecting him back to himself; the others, are the echo chamber repeating him back to himself.
Realist validates himself and his beliefs against the indifferent world, within which others are a small part.
The world, beyond human contrivances, is his standard of measuring himself and his beliefs.

>Nihilist has only symbols/words, and refers to internal phenomena, usually using convoluted, artistic, metaphorical lingo.
Vagueness is how he tries to escape detection. Metaphors, references, deference to icons/idols, tries to impress.
Realist uses symbols/words to refer to reality; connecting, via their mediation, to phenomena all can perceive - outside his mind.
His words are precise, clear and direct, because his motive is clarity.

>Nihilist requires accolades, appreciation, popularity, to feel validated and vindicated, because his positions are psychologically driven, and psychologically founded; they are about a personal issue.
Realist requires no appreciations because his views are validated by perceptible interactions/behaviours, and are validated by applying them - actions.
They have a pragmatic value.

>Nihilists depend on mass-participation and mass justification, because their positions are nonsensical beyond the human condition- quantities.
He compensates for the absence of empirical validation, and for the lack of utility, with a following.
He either follows, belonging to a mass (herd) or wishes to be followed by as many as possible.    
Realist may depend on others for his well-being, as he is part of a social species, but his positions are dependent on quality, so popularity has the opposite effect to what it has for the nihilist.
For a realist a position's popularity is reason enough to be skeptical about it, given historical precedent, and the beliefs of the masses  through the ages, including our own.  

>Nihilist must proselytize and convince as many others as possible, because his beliefs are meaningless outside minds. Therefor, spreading his convictions is a means of spreading the utility of his theories, which are useless in any other context.
Application relies on psychology. He needs gullible, impressionable, easily dominated minds.
Idiocy is a potential for power.
Realist does not need to convince or impress, because his beliefs are based on reality, shared by all, and existing whether others perceive it or not.
His beliefs are validated by their applied costs/benefits - consequences.  
His positions are so useful, pragmatic, that making them popular would be counter-productive, from a personal, self-interested perspective.
Idiocy is preferable, unless he is trapped in an enclosed environment, among idiots who determine his fate, like in an insane asylum, a prison, or planet earth, in our modern times - then his situation, regarding idiocy, because tenuous.
Stampeding herd of bovines are easily preyed upon, but if in a fenced area the predator is in danger of being trampled.  

>Nihilist must always have a sacred book, full of Holy Scripture, to refer and defer to, or he must always have a famous dead icon/idol to use in his support, whether the dead icon/idol does so or not.
He is a mind of the Book, by the Book, for the Book, where 'Book' can be any text that flatters and makes him feel good.
It's because he requires third-party validation for what cannot be validated independently. With no world to discipline himself to, he seeks limits in other minds, only to appropriate, and/or dismiss them, in time.
Realist needs no such sacred manuals, or sanctified idols. He refers and defers to a collection of manuals that both support and contradict him, because he fears no opposing beliefs, holding his own as superior, not as absolute truths.
Challenges is how he sharpens his mind, and solidifies his positions.  


Negative, or pure, Nihilists
This type of psychosis dismisses his own perceptions when he's become disillusion by positive Nihilism.
Having been trained to not trust his own senses, and to rely on mediators, such as positive Nihilists, he becomes aware of the deceit, but having lost trust in himself has no alternative but to negate all.

A mind comes closer to nature with his symbols/words.
He honours world and his existence within it, by correctly, and respectfully applying symbols/words.

They are representations of his nervous system, with the mind as its focus, its Will.
Performing the rites correctly, shows reverence for what is held as sacred.
Applying symbols/words correctly, in accordance to a tradition, a convention, but also in in harmony with nature's order, is a display of one's true reverence.
The right symbols/words placed in their proper sequence, and in the right context, is how a man worships nature.
He does not add, or subtract anything, because this exposes a dissatisfaction.
He begins with what is....what appears.

Having no artistry means not being able to decipher metaphors, or to misconstrue the representation of the real, for the real itself.
This makes degenerates particularly vulnerable to those that can paint metaphorical imagery, pleasing surreal abstractions, naming them whatever pleases or promises a better effect.
It's among the inartistic, the non-talented, where artistry become lost in ambiguity and insinuating forms and colours, or can be used to exploit those that are clueless - the lost, the ones inheriting inferior genes, the ones born and in un-stimulating environments.
You will find them congregating in pop-cultural venues, applauding, mindlessly, what they are told is deep and of great artistic value; what is in fashion, this season, and forgotten the next.
there you will find the misers, the charlatans...those that parasitically feed on such decrepitude.

We can ascribe this degradation of language to nihilistic manipulation as a result of loss of aesthetic acumen.
A cognitive thickness that knows not the difference between metaphor, and representation.

What I call Nihilism is an idea(l) that dismisses, and negates the sensually perceived, experienced world.
Nihilism is an idea(l) that has no existence outside the mind.
Pure meme.
Memes are rooted in world and genes interacting with it.
Nihilism inverts this relationship.
It replaces world for the meme, the idea(l) and then relates to it genetically, or it centres world around the idea(l).
The idea(l) was not invented by Abrahamism. They stole it from the Zoroastrians, where it was the idea(l) of a duality God/Satan.

Nihilism is the worshipping of the idea(l), and idea(l)s in their raw form are dualistic, are based on the brain's binary method of interpreting a fluctuating, fluid, dynamic world.
The idea(l) can only be shared, transmitted contemplated as a symbol/word, therefore the symbol/word becomes the essence of the idea(l) - its code, replacing genetic code DNA with a binary code 1/0.
This is related to man's dominance of his body, his animal nature, using the mind. This is called cultivation, becoming civilized.
The mind's binary code imposed upon the body's genetic (G,C,U,A) rules regulating their expression.

With Nihilism this becomes a psychosis.
The genetic code , the body, is rejected completely, and usurped by the binary code of the brain.
This binary code is expressed in many ways.
Spiritually, in Abrahamism as good/evil, or God/Satan.
Politically it is expressed as Right/Left.
Mathematically as 1/0.
Philosophically it is expressed as Absolute Order/Absolute Chaos.

In all these representations, conceptualizations, the common trait is absoluteness.
The absolute is central in nihilism.
It is the absolute negation of the world's uncertainty, its fluidity.
The absolute can be imagined in many ways, one of which is a synthesis of opposites, because the opposites participating in nihilistic dualities are mental fabrications, relative to the individual's self-awareness.
The Nihilist makes of himself the point where these opposites merge into a singularity that can be projected as an Absolute One otherness = God in the abrahamic sense.
The Self becomes a mystical idea(l) synthesizing the opposites of Mind/Body, exoteric/esoteric, I/Other.
World's fluidity, its dynamism, is harmonized with the brain's translation of it into static abstractions using vagueness, ambiguity, a spiritual mysticism. The only place where the semblance of a synthesis between contradictions can be converted into evidence of its validity.
Rather than disproving the thesis it accentuates its magical essence when the contradictions result in great paradoxes, conundrums, contradictions.
Rather than disheartening the individual they indicate that he's on the 'right path' towards enlightenment.
For many the contradictions between his conceptualized abstractions and experienced world become penance, or a testing of his piety, his will.
The paradox is integrated into the dogma as a normal byproduct of its faith.
Mind considers it a testing by the body - corporeality, the physical, testing the commitment of the mind to discipline the body to the idea(l).
Zealotry emerges from this, as a sacrificing of the physical, the body, to the sacredness of the mind's idea(l) = Absolute One.
Asceticism, in the Hellenic sense, is the training of the body/mind, to cultivate an idea(l) where body/mind (self) are part of a continuum that exists within the fluidity of the cosmos.
Asceticism, in the Abrahamic, Nihilistic, sense is the denial of the physical, of the body, and its assimilation into the mind's singular idea(l).
It has no past, only future.
It has no presence, but is everywhere and nowhere.
It does not appear, but is hidden, occult, exposing itself only to the initiated, the chosen, the worthy, the adequately trained in its symbols/words to find meaning.
Language is where the Nihilist's idea(l) exists, and it can only exist in a mind that has been prepared, cultivated, indoctrinated.

There is no 'self' as the Moderns define and understand the term.
Some eventually awaken to the fact that the world is opposition to their understanding, because their understanding is primitive and absolutist, using the most primitive method of conceptualizing, the binary method, and then taking it literally.
To their dismay there is no point in space time, to call 'I', and no eternal, absolute immutable, perfect, whole; no oneness.


Self is a process, emerging, spontaneously, from unconscious interactivity, and then developing into a conscious interactivity, focused outward, and gradually turning inward.
Self, is a process held together by memory, and like all memories they fade, and the risk of losing them is a constant clear and present danger; a by-product of interactivity itself.
Self can only refer to a living organism, to distinguish it from non-living un-conscious processes, with no motive, no judgement, no awareness whatsoever, and therefore no possibility of memory.

Memory is what holds the self-aware ego, within the non-self-aware, but simply aware small self inside the bigger determined past, sum of all selves, Self.
Memory is what connects the patterns, participating in the unity called self, with the continuum of patterns that have interacted and contributed to the causality chain.

Appearance is this chain of causality made present, and apparent to other conscious unities.
Appearance is the manifestation of this chain of causality, that does not hide the entirety of its past - interpreted by another consciousness to the degree that it can decipher the apparent.
Appearance can be covered in garment, in make-up, and can be surgically altered but it cannot be changed.
you can bury and forget it; you can dismiss and deny it...and you still have not escaped it, because you, as you appear, are it.

You are not more, or less than exactly what you appear to be.
Some may misinterpret the apparent, or fail to perceive its details, but that's also something you can fail to do.

What is called 'I', or ego, is simply a partitioning of time/space, in accordance to your motives, or the accuracy of your sensual awareness, excluding dimensions of appearance, because they are unflattering, threatening, or you simply cannot process the data.
The 'I' is contained within a time-frame, determined by your motives and mental speeds.
The 'I' is the ego naming itself.
The ego is the part of the self that is becoming aware of itself.
The self is the part of the Self that begins at inception and ends at death.
The Self is a continuum of memories, stored and passed on, from generation to generation.
It's beginning is lost in time/space, when iteration established a stable, self-perpetuating unity of patterns, withstanding other patterns and random Energies.
The ambiguous point, in space/time when awareness separated from non-awareness, and gained a motive, a goal, an objective. at first simple...like consume, appropriate, attract, the type of patterns being lost, due to attrition, and then gradually progressing to where the energies being lost, in self, became externalized idea(l)s, as mind began to differentiate itself from body.
