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.
