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.

Difference between patrilineal and matrilineal adoption of identity is that the first acquires identify from proactive, masculine, agency, and the second from passive, feminine agency.

Or we could say that since both sides end in extremes, the scale is actually a circle. We can then identify another axis, crossing the r/l axis at 90 degrees, for measuring the 1/0 absolutes.

Yes.
The either/or polarity of Nihilism is really the approach of the singularity from a different psychological perspective.
The Left from the perspective of femininity approaching a dominant male, and the Right from the perspective of a challenger approaching an adversary.
This creates the two Nihilistic poles of pure and positive Nihilism - Binary thinking

One from the perspective of absolute chaos, where chaos is defined as complexity, and the other from the perspective of absolute order, where order is defined as a singularity and given a title, like God, One, Whole etc.
Right/Left in the Modern west is dominated by Nihilism. The Right/Left are poles in the same nihilistic paradigm.

This is why in the states the "right' is cucksertative, as it is called.
This gives the illusion of freedom, when the masses of morons are asked, every four years, to choose which pole they prefer for the next while, but the system itself is never challenged.  

We see this in philosophy with its total dominance by the idea(l) of absolutes.
Even self-defined secular philosophies presume a replacement for the One God, but hide the fact by renaming the concept something else, like Truth One, Whole, or when they describe the world using terms present in Abrahamism.
What is particularly absurd and funny, is when pseudo-intellectual nit-wits worshipping Nietzsche, like Christians worship Jesus, describe the universe in Christian terms, and assume it to be conscious, one, a God....or when they replace the Christian word 'love' with some other 'positive' emotional term, that only applies to living organisms, implying the universe is alive.
This is funny because of Nietzsche's polemic against Christianity, and indirectly against its maternal source, Judaism.

Artur Żmijewski: [You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]

"Presented at the 12th Documenta in Kassel, Them is a recording of a social experiment performed by the artist. Żmijewski organised a workshop to which he invited four groups representing divergent ideological mindsets: members of nationalist Młodzież Wszechpolska (All-Polish Youth), women strongly attached to the Catholic Church, young Polish Jews and leftist organisation activists.

Like in the exercise Common Space, Private Space performed since the 1980s at Grzegorz Kowalski’s studio at the Warsaw Academy of Fine Arts, the participants of the workshop were given the task to negotiate the shape of their common space without words.

Thus, the debate adopted the form of actions on previously prepared images, which represented the values of particular importance for each of the groups. The workshop, in which the artist retained the observer role, unveiled the way how the ideological controversy arose between the groups and posed questions about the possibility of coexistence of bipolar opposites in the social space."

Abrahamic religions and all forms of Nihilism despise science, if it is true to tis principles. Anything that places the standard outside the mind, or uses sensuality, empiricism, to construct theories, it despises, because this handicaps its imagination and prohibits it from creating its mental fabrications, exposing them as being nothing more than creative, fantastic fantasies.
Nihilism wants a free-hand to weave its meanings. Remaining disciplined to natural order, the gods, is too much of a hindrance – too difficult, for them to attain their goal of self-aggrandizing, self-flattering, weaves.
Philosophy would be too difficult, for them, to gain notoriety, or to find in it something to use to better their own lives.
It is far easier to fabricate an alternative, from memory, unconcerned about how it relates to the experienced world – the one that must be adjusted to satisfy, or to comfort the self.
Sure, sometimes they try to harmonize the idea(l) and the real, but this always fails when the mind has already decided what the desired outcome ought to be, or within what parameters it would be deemed ‘good’, and therefore ‘true’, and when reality, itself, does not care what any individual wishes, or cares for.
I call this the seesaw effect. The mind pretending to be scientific and empirical, while leaning towards the fantastic, the fabricated; titter-tottering back and forth, when circumstances threaten to expose its methodology for all the world to see, and guided by a goal, an image, desperate to appear, to the many, as a wise, gifted, talented mind. It’s easier to pretend you excel, and then convince some dim-wits of it, than to actually excel. Dim-wits, are by their nature, dim, and witless, and many share a desperation that can be manipulated. They want to believe in lies, so feeding them lies is like preaching to the choir.
This is why science and religion do not mix, and this is why paganism, or Hinduism, is not a religion.

Meaning can be used differently by nihilistic extroverts and by nihilistic introverts.
[You must be registered and logged in to see this link.] of data are woven into representations of reality - fabrications of meaning.
Manifesto: Society – Language – Etymology – Word INDEX – Meaning
-Fabrications can cover the individual, keeping the world away, on the "outside" = passive (feminine) pure Nihilism.
The world is 'too much' for the individual to deal with so he cocoons himself in his own construct, his own abstractions, denying everything coming from beyond them.

-Fabrications can cover the world as it is 'too little', too small, not enough for the individual to be fulfilled by it. Ego has hyper-inflated to protect itself. Sense of self has been exaggerated as a defensive posture = positive (masculine) nihilism.
The individual places himself outside, above, beyond the world.
Abstractions, noetic strands, are woven into a tapestry, often more spectacular than reality, that covers the world, until it is buried in artifices and forgotten.
The world is often not denied, completely, but only degraded in relation to the mental fabrication.
It becomes less than it ought to be.  MANifesto: Psychology – Extrovert/Introvert

Symbiosis is now possible, because feminine, passive Nihilism is attracted to proactive masculine Nihilism, if what is presented is appealing, promising to it – the masculine fabrication seduces the feminine out of hiding.
Christianity presented such a 'positive' alternative, better, grander, spectacular, fantastic covering of the world, and the emasculated slaves of the world flocked to it.
The Jews denied it to others, when their fabrication became too attractive for the masses to resist.
Christianity and Islam opened it up to the world, by redefining the world to mean Humanity.
They could ‘change the world’ by changing Humanity – ergo all is a social construct in modern minds.  
Race, sex, many undesirable aspects of the real world were covered in a tapestry of alternate meanings, under the redefinition of humanity as world.
Passive, pure Nihilism and 'positive' Nihilism enter into a master/salve relationship, correlating to an erotic one.
Positive, masculine, Nihilist offers his fabrication to the passive pure Nihilist, as a gift, to liberate him/her from his hiding. The passive element experiences this as an expansion, or a coming-out into the 'world', which is not the real world but the world fabricated by another.

In philosophical contexts this is expressed as a dependence on other thinkers – relating to world via a proxy, and never directly.
World through text, through a sacred book, or a manual held in high regard. The feminine nihilist comes out of hiding, under his own fabrications if there is an alternate reality covering the actual one. He exits his own covering fabrications to enter another's covering, burying, the world.
Like many erotic relationships this one is based on myth – hyper-inflation of each other’s traits. It can suffer the usual consequences of such a symbiotic relationship, after a long period of coexistence and codependency – disillusionment.
The masculine, proactive nihilist is greedy, lustful. He will never turn away a willing surrender, a slave, because his alternate world depends on other minds being integrated, woven into its fabrications –  interwoven, into its tapestry of meanings that covers, buries world.
The passive pure feminine nihilist is prone to what all feminine spirits are prone to – disillusionment with what can only be an imperfect fabrication, and its seduction by a new, alternate, fabrication is almost inevitable. A better promise.

A memetic virus mirrors the strategy of viruses that affect the body, it also follows the same life-cycles: 1- Attachment, 2-Penetration, 3- Uncoating, 4-Release, 5-Assembly, 6-Biosynthesis.
For a memetic virus, such as Nihilism, the transmission is via symbols/words, and the same cycle is this:
1-Attachment: mind comes in contact with a nihilistic idea(l) in text, or word of mouth narrative.
2-Penetration: abstractions penetrate the mind as ideas, in the form of metaphors.
3-Uncoating: nihilistic virus gradually unfolds its meaning, corrupting pre-existing ones.
4-Release: New abstractions arise, that have no reference to reality, or that directly contradict what is experienced.
5-Assembly: these abstractions are combined into new unities, contradicting the sensually perceived world.
6- Nihilistic meme enters the core of the mind’s conceptualizing, gradually detaching it from reality, and engulfing it in tis subjective, private uni-verse, of self-referring absolutes.
The absolute is taken literally rather than as a simplification/generalization constructed by the brain itself.

Understanding how the simple on/off switching method called binary logic, or dualism can adapt to a fluid, multi-dimensional world, and a body using a for code DNA method, is to understand what abstraction is: simplifying/generalizing means reducing multi-dimensional space/time to a simple binary code.
Shedding light into the mind/body divide, or the paradoxes arising from the conflict of idealism and realism, or words and actions.
Also illuminating the memetic virus I call nihilism, and how the mind can immerse itself in self-referential constructs and detach from a more complicate and uncertain world beyond.
The seductive appeal of living in your own private universe, peering into your own eyes, and comfortably safe in your personal subjective space/time, where no other judgments can hurt you.

Think about the body's four code DNA: AUCG....and compare it to the mind's binary code 1/0.
Body has a wisdom the mind is only awakening to, in a simplified form - needing art, metaphors, similes, to conceptualize it.
Now, think about how the body's four codes compare to a cosmos of ten+ dimensional space/time, where space = possibilities, and matter/energy = probabilities.

Now consider the theory that expanding space/time, and increasing chaos, is a fragmentation of dimensions, multiplying possibilities, tending towards the infinite, absolute.

Perhaps we can grasp why intelligence is an advantage, whereas simplicity is a bliss...and why man invents technologies and artificial intelligence to compensate for his own inability to adapt fast enough to this inevitable process of towards chaos.

But do not be disheartened...chaos, as in randomness, is essential for life and, as was noted, for consciousness to emerge...and the absolute is impossible, so absolute chaos, like absolute order, are human construct - abstractions that refer to nothing outside our brains....like 1/0.
They refer to anything and everything.
When we see a stone, is it a singularity, a one stone, or did we separate it from the background in our mind, and translated it into a whole?

The translation I've called interpretation as in Interactions & Interpretations....and we interpret the world in our own subjective ways, and then act in accordance to these interpretations, hoping we got it right.

First interpretation occurs on a primal, simple level, even pants can perform, when interaction stimulates nerve cells, triggering a reaction - localized cascading effect of cellular interactions.
Second, more sophisticated interpretation occurs when the organism develops a nervous system, and this pulse is transmitted to a central processing hub called a brain, and converted to what we call a sensation, and later a thought.
Then in the brain a third interpretation when brain takes all these sensations, thoughts and combines them into mental models we call abstractions.
Then the fourth when the reverse occurs and the thought is translated back to neural [pulse to be transmitted to muscles to produce movement, or to be returned into world as Inter)activity.
At this point the entire process of interpretations are put to the test, and cost/benefit determines natural selection and success/failure.

But if an external will intervenes anywhere in the process to adjust the consequences to its own objective then the mind will grow to become narcissistic, arrogant, and immersed in its private, subjective reality.
It will become stunted, retarded in its development, it will atrophy, unable to cope with what it has evolved to cope with - fragility, pampering....delusional, retarded.

Such minds will prefer to live in their heads, or in artificial realities provided to them by other more creative minds, or will live in books, by books, for books, finding authors, poets, to idolize - icons of their alternate reality.

Let's assume that a boy's bone structure is his inherited constitution.
Can't do much about it. It is what it is.

Let's say his muscles are the cultivated potentials he's inherited.
He can grow his muscles, with stress, or leave them to atrophy.
He can grow them to support his bone structure.
Yet, he is born with a potential for that, as well. A potential he can only exceed using artificial means, like steroids, with expected repercussions.
Like chemical inebriating enhancements.

Now let's say the boy was raised in a sheltered environment.  
Didn't have to lift much weight, was always safe from such efforts, and when he did it was for sport, to look good for the ladies, focusing his stress to specific muscles that are more pronounced.
Lifting weights by the book, in accordance to a ritual, a scripted method to attain certain goals.

Let's say the sheltering ends, and now he's faced with a world of mass, that does not care about his fitness exercises and grooming and desires.
Will not the first mass that exceeds his muscle and skeletal capacity break him?
Will not a crack be formed?

What of the smart-ass boy who uses mental tricks to lift weights, and renames the weight a 'feather'?
Now this trick may work, for a small mass, because of the placebo effect, but what of a mass exceeding his body's ability to trick itself by using words?
Will renaming the elephant a tadpole make it easier to lift?
Do such clever boys not harbour a secret knowledge about their self-deceit, not daring to lift anything dangerous above their heads?
Do not such boys surround themselves with weaklings, or impressionable boys they can performs their tricks to?


Sheltering atrophies the mind.
It makes it incapable of dealing with reality, above and beyond a certain point of stress.
It forces men-children into the unfortunate position of being forced to perform self-deception and parlour tricks, or to dismiss weightlifting as 'beneath them', as too base and primitive for them.
When a mind is broken, it can grow stronger, like a broken bone, or it thicker, like a muscle, but it may tear beyond repair, making all future weights too unbearable.

'What does not kill me has the potential of making me stronger'....not it automatically makes me so.
It may not kill me but it may very well cripple me for life.

How much difference we can perceive or dare to accept determines how precise our interpretations of dynamic existence are.
Sameness, uniformity, is how a simple mind perceives, interprets, what it cannot discern patterns within.
As such, our feeble human senses cannot discern the intricacy of patterns interacting, translating world into static, uniformity - wholes, oneness = absolutes.

Absolutes are the dimensional implosion of much-dimensional inter-activities between patterned and non-patterned Energies.
Energies = ordered and random oscillation/ vibration.

Vibration = fluctuating possibility, where space = possibility and energy/matter = probability.
Oscillation = range of  fluctuating dimensional effect.
Effect = attraction/repulsion.
Attraction/Repulsion = degree of harmony between two, or more, Energies.

Congruence = circumstantial interactivity, perceived by a conscious mind, using itself as a standard as being intentional - with a motive.
Unity = one or more patterns finding balance in their relationship, where the repulsion between them is counteracted by a superior attraction, or by its partial negation within a synergistic relationship.
What this means is that two patterns that would normally repel each other, the degree of disharmony exceeding the degree of their harmony, may become balanced with the intervening effect of a third pattern.
This is how patterns unite to become what we call particles, or cells, or elements, so as to be generalized/simplified into types of matter/energy.

Energies oscillating erratically, their vibrations being random, we call chaotic.....and these can never attain any balance, not be perceived by an organism with our sensual acuity.
Random Energies remain microscopic, because they cannot unify to reach the level of the apparent.
Their effects are integrated into the apparent - integrated in the final outcome of their interactivity, perceived after-the-fact by an organic brain.
We only perceive chaos indirectly, through its effects on patterns, which we can perceive when and if they form balanced unities to reach a level our organic sense organs and our slow brains can process.

But back to sameness/difference.
Sameness relies on the simplification/generalization of fluctuating patterns.
We compare our abstractions of them finding similarities to make them comprehensible to us - or to integrate them into larger theoretical unities.
A simple mind, or an organism with weak sense organs, will not perceive differences in what for another is full of subtle divergences.

The psychological movement to reduce everything human to a uniformity is a desire to become unconscious of differences, tending towards the absolute sameness of a singularity = god.
God is the theoretical idea(l) of a non-differentiated, whole - a uniform singularity, contradicted by existence and its multiplicity.
Therefore God is the perfectly good, and existence the forever imperfectly evil.
Paradox produced is due to the contradiction linguistics creates hen the mind understands symbols/words literally, and not metaphorically, figuratively = representation.

A prefect whole made of imperfect parts is a self-contradicting idea(l) trying to mystify as a means of hiding this self-contradiction.  
Converting the contradiction to a mystification clouds it over, and attempts to hide it, or to use it as evidence of faith.
Faith being the sacrifice of reason, experience, reality on the altar of need/desire.
Mystification is how charlatans, liars,  hide their lies, manipulating the simplicity of their target audience that desires sameness, to become part of a uniform whole, a one.
The psychological desire to ignore, and/or dismiss, reject divergence, is exploited.

Mistaking empathy for sympathy or antipathy exposes the modern mind as mediocre and lacking an imagination above the subjective level.
On the other extreme cold rationalism leads to apathy, which is a disconnection, rather than a connection, using the imagination.
Moderns, lacking more than a mediocre mind, can only project self in the other's position, and imagine themselves and how they would react if they faced this others circumstances or if they thought as this other does.
This method confuses self, for other, therefore someone expressing an opinion about race, or sex, that the modern cannot relate to, is immediately judged in this manner.
The modern imagines how he would be, how he would feel, what he would do, if we believed in races, or if he believes in gender differences, as more than social constructs.
Anxiety/Fear, bring more than the mother of all emotions, and the easiest and therefore first to evolve, is the one governing the baseness of the modern.
Fear is the first emotion the modern projects, or feels when placing himself in an alien, undesirable circumstance.
Fear is what drives them to their own conclusions, seeking sheltering there, so they project it into anything that exposes them to discomfort, or what is strange, unknown to them.
The first emotion the modern can feel when imagining himself in the others place, or when trying to understand the other, imagining himself believing what the other believes, so the modern immediate assumes this as being indicative of the other, and his motives.
What is the first thing the modern assumes when exposed to race facts?
Hatred, violence... because this is what he would do, feel, if he believed what the other believes.
What does the Christian imagine when thinking of a world missing an absolute one god?
Sadness, suicide, meaninglessness...so he assumes this is what characterizes the ones who reject his conception of god.
Without a threatening, promising God, he imagines how violent, destructive he would be, and assumes this is so for the non-believer.
Moderns cannot empathize... they are trapped, or limited, in their dualistic either/or paradigm, able to only sympathize or feel antipathy, or at most feel apathy.
They never know other... they only project what little they know of themselves into other, and this self-knowledge is often lacking, or minimal, and always self-flattering, self-aggrandizing, self-comforting, self-serving.

Consider the method of a simple organism, such as a dog.
How does a dog imagine a human, other than by taking itself as an example?
A dog assumes the human is another canine. A dog projects this as an identification of other, assuming that it is like the human… another human, or the human is like itself.
It has no ability to think of the human as a different species, as something similar but vastly more different. It only knows the similar, not the different.

Multiply physical attacks over long periods of time may threaten the body's cohesion, forcing it to react by thickening the points of impact.
Time, as always, acts as a period of habituation, adapting what is not shattered to new circumstances.
Body's thickness, topical numbness, does not completely register to the mint.
It winces, every time there's a lunge towards the delicate area, even after a long period of time when thickening has made all attacks relatively less damaging and painful.
To the mind, habituated to the assault, the area is still delicate.
Each thrust makes it react in exaggerated reactions.

And so it is with matters of trust, and what is called paranoid personality disorder.
Childhood scars long healed and thickness to the point of numbness, of no-feeling, leave a mental sensitivity.
Stress energies put on standby for a fight/flight reaction, remain high-tuned to minor gestures of a threatening nature.
A child growing in a home where accusation, judgment, resulted din severe beatings, will be very defensive, very sensitive to critique, when it grows up.
In its mind every judgment can only be proceeded with a painful event.
Anger is what fear/anxiety turns into, when fight is the only option, and there is no sublimating 'love' to quiet down the mind, and expunge nervous tensions.

Freedom is another one of those words being thrown around in its modernistic conception.
As an absolute.
Like truth, for many mediocre minds, means absolute certainty, absolute singular truth, freedom has come to mean absolute independence, and not degree of dependence.
Like strength, if defined similarly, would mean omnipotence, and not a degree of weakness, in relation to another - a value judgment, a comparison.

To Will is to will what one lacks, desires, needs, because if it is in his possession then he would not will it - he would not have to.
Free-Will is a self-contradicting concept if understood defined, in the manner moderns do.

If understood properly, by connecting words to world, then freedom is a degree of independence from a particular phenomenon, and will is a focus of aggregate energies upon an objective, only possible for living organisms...therefore only life can be said to have the potential for free-will.

But if all is ordered then what can a will be independent from, and how can its will not be determined by what is?
There would not be a necessity for choice, if all were ordered, because in time all would fall into a reactive state where consciousness would be redundant.
All interactions, reactions, could be stabilized by trial and error, over huge periods of time, requiring no judgment, no focus.
A particular ordered circumstance would produce an automatic, ordered, determined, response to it.

The only way choice would be necessary, and the development of consciousness an advantage is if randomness slightly altered order so that no two instances was ever absolutely the same.
This divergence is what makes consciousness essential.
Consciousness evolved to deal with the eternally unforeseen, since there are no absolutes, and this means there is no absolute order.
Choice is the slight modification of a reaction to the same circumstance....because insanity, as Eisenstein, I think, said, is the repeating of the same and expecting a different outcome.

Randomness, defines properly as absence of order, of repeating, consistent, rhythm, where existence is defined as that which is dynamic or (inter)acts, is what enables choice to have the leeway to liberate itself from precedent, and automated, prescribed actions.
Order would follow the path-of-least-resistance, and not apply choice at all. a simple process of (inter)action..
Only life can will, or choose a different, more demanding path - path-of-more-resistance.
Only life can choose a self-destructive path, or place an idea(l) above even its own continuance.
This is an expression of its liberation from its past, its nature, from precedent - nature = sum of all previous nurturing.
This si how life differentiate form non-life, or lifeless unities of patterns, and how one life form distinguishes itself from more base life forms.

Life is ordering, of a variety of patterns in varying degrees of harmony - balance. It depends on a degree of order, and samples precedent, past, to guide its choices, its interactions, when it opts to choose its death than to live in a world void of what it deems necessary to be dignified.

The only way this could be possible is if the world were not absolutely deterministic, and this means it is not absolutely ordered.
In religious metaphors, or Abrahamic semiology, God = absolute order - singularity, oneness, whole perfection, and Satan is the imperfection in the perfection.
Chaos in order, Yin/Yang.
The Devil is presented as the benefactor of man, because without what he represents life and consciousness would be redundant.
devil is defined as a trickster, because he is never the same, as he is a metaphor for chaos, randomness, and not chaos as hidden order, complexity.
Without the Devil the world would inevitably end, because absolute order implies an absolute knowledge, understanding of it as a probability.

Absolute order, is the opposite pole in the nihilistic paradigm = absolutes.
Nihilism needs absolutes, because it is an entirely human construct.
Whether it be in absolute chaos, or in absolute order, the world ends, as nil, or as a singularity, a ONE, where there is nowhere to go, because it is the abstraction of the implosion of space/time to a singular point - one dimensional space.

Now moderns create fanciful ways of explaining why an absolutely Good god would create absolute evil....with a anthropomorphic narrative.
But secular nihilists do no less.
they simply baptize interactivity perfection, or describe a multiplicity as a oneness, or the imperfection as a perfection.
The theoretical perfect made of imperfect parts - contradiction...where the goal is to discover it - faith...finding god.
a good god creating a world where evil exist..
The insinuation is always that of a 'testing'...as if existence were a game, a puzzle, we were placed in - a labyrinth and we Odysseus, or Theseus, trying to find Minotaur to free, or to slay, and then exit.
Although in the allegory the Minotaur represented the soul of darkness, man's denied animal nature.
Odysseus, more noble, wanted to free the beast, and Theseus to kill it - killing man's nature.
A metaphor pointing to modernity.
Nature trapped in mental labyrinths, slain, to make man fully rational, civilized - ordered.

Absolute is the new name of the one God, and man the slave, the self-negating 'hero' trying to come close to the divine.

What is the overman, and resetniment in Nietzchean canon allegories?

It is man, dependent on order, desiring, craving order, being ordering, appreciating order as beauty (symmetry proportionality) resenting the necessity for chaos.
Overman is the acceptance, the coming to term, the surpassing of man's resentment of his chaotic dependence - fear, 'nay saying' becoming 'yes saying'.
It is the overcoming of man resenting his own nature, as ordering emerging from the interaction of patterns and randomness, of order and chaos.
It is the coming to terms with eternal uncertainty, unpredictability...that which makes consciousness, choices, possible.

Let's put aside words, and big theories and renaming concepts to accommodate a desired outcome and ask ourselves...."Am I perfect? Do I feel perfect, compete, free, whole?"
"How can I be imperfect within perfection, even if my imperfection is not knowing how perfect I am - ignorance of my own absolution?"
"How can my imperfection, be part of a perfection, when I am a part of that which I judge?"
"How can I be perfect and die, or be dependent on other? Is my mortality, and by dependence, my lack of freedom, part of perfection, or am i simply renaming things to make myself feel better, or like I belong to a perfect, absolute one god? Have i invented a new name, and a new way of remaining Abrahamic, Judaeo-Christian/Muslim, because the alternative terrifies me and makes me feel small, vulnerable, insecure?"

It's interesting that in science the slightest divergence is studied, often creating an entire discipline form the analysis of a small divergence, but the only place difference is considered too small to matter is when it comes to humans.  

Hyperbole meets Hypobole.

Hyper - υπερ-βολή: to shoot above the mark.
Hypo- υπο-βολή: to shoot below the mark.

We've become so numb, so void of sensation, that we use symbols/words to refer to a hyper-inflation of our reactions to world, safe and sound within our man-made artifices.
In addition to all other functions the brain has the duty of protecting the organism from the stressful impact of the world.
Metaphors are like parachutes, spreading the pressure across a larger expanse, to not overburden any single point, floating down, down gently upon the ground.
They are now pushed up, up, on the hot air of organic peptic processes - mastication and flatulation.

Carrying away, free of gravity, a mind wanting to reach the sun.

Ever since Nietzsche philosophy has become psychological interventions to rid human psychology of a linguistically carried psychosis (metaphor) – a mental parasite corrupting the very essence of philosophy.

But this is to be expected.
Nihilism is a way of coping with the world, by turning against or away from it and hiding in symbols/words.
It's a psychosis the modern man suffers from - a memetic virus that places the patient in a comfortable half-wakefulness, a state of narcosis.
Nietzsche offered nothing new, or different from ancient pagan, Aryan spirituality, and wisdom.
Traditions going back to Heraclitus and Hinduism.
What he offered was a diagnosis, and a preemptive preventative regimentation to keep clean from the infection.
I fear he did not go far enough, nor was he clear enough.
He is now appropriated by the very disease he diagnosed...just as Jesus was appropriated by the very religious tradition he rebelled against.

Fortunately he is not the last diagnostician.

People use language to hide from the truth, abusing language with malformed abstractions and metaphors, allegories, all sort of these types of speech that have become their form of thinking as well. An mentality-world has been created in which language can be used to reference things that do not exist, but also guarantee a feelings-based response in oneself and in others used as a kind of secret signal to say to one another “I’m with you.”

“That’s just my white privilege.” —overheard in class

Statements like the above serve not to develop an idea but to signal an allegiance, and also to violently psychologically cut oneself down. The vermin feel most comfortable when closest to the ground, where they can hide and search for food amongst the shit... as Nietzsche said.

Do you think that postmodern decadence and nihilism can never rule, because they hate truth so much? To rule, this must mean to be truthful, to embody certain truths to enliven them more in the world. Or should we see postmodernism as power’s [Rulership’s] creative playfulness with itself, because its spirit is wide and deep enough that it can afford to do that?
