ABOVE STRENGTH AND WEAKNESS



Preface

The essence of man and the essence of nature; combined they effectuate what will be propounded in this adventure in grasping the nature of wisdom, of a superior awareness. But also, a superior being. The distinction of strength and weakness is an enduring separation of, not powers, but energies and the direction they go. This distinction is of a timelessness that must be captured in essence to be understood. This is the endeavor of wisdom, to move through a procession of light and shadow, tones and hues. What will be meant as “superior” here, is not an ‘authority’ or ‘position over something’ or others, but a separation of oneself in their awareness to grasp truths. A placement in a hierarchy of organic order, is what is meant in this way of being superior; a place among the world shall we say.

The impetus of strength, of wisdom, the highest point, the apex, is indubitably, the objective of the one of wisdom I propose and the objective of this book. The one of wisdom however, is misunderstood for many things, as is this ascension I speak of, of a certain knowledgeable and spiritual kind. One error we must refrain from is idealizing the wise or wisdom. This is a common fallacy. Any idealization is a pretension. What is of concern are the problem of balance, ascending and descending of awareness in its struggle to understand. The ebb and flow of strength is this aboveness of strength and weakness that will constitute these writings. The aboveness is where we seek to be to attain the highest point of consciousness and the practice of it through mind and body. I propose in this exploration a higher acumen to the nature of strength. A point of seeing what it is, that surpasses ideology; a way of detaching ourselves from methodologies or conventional language; a way of standing outside the perceptual perimeter and gazing upon its structure. But this is not rebellion for the sake of self-grandeur. There is no ideology here, no such sacrilege can be had when one chooses to strive seriously towards the essence of being. This is an attempt to communicate the spirit of this highest point of superiority, of wisdom. A pattern will emerge among these writings that constitute a cohesive idea of strength and weakness.

It is regrettably necessary to acknowledge that we are men of learning, a breed of men born into a yolk of ideas that it is our duty to cast off ourselves. The very possibility that there may still exist some life of naturalness in the practice of thinking has been thwarted by the confines of academics and theory. We learners, tend to look out into a land or terrain and see only how we can correlate it with what we know about what that land is objectively. Objectively, we are wise. Objectively, we know ourselves in relation to the wisdom of the self. Objectively, we can climb any mountain and navigate any ocean and find our way through any forest. We have learned to understand wisdom, but not to have it. The endeavor in this work is, all language aside, to understand solitude and silence and Will. It cannot be any simpler than to return to a traditional mode of what drives us, a simple complexity. The age of ideas has become the calamitous room of disruptive voices, circulating words that go nowhere; it is up to us, the wise, to harness them and explode them through the wall as we break out of the room of this learning cacophony, to see the light coming in that will illuminate a greater awareness and a farther destiny.

The nature of wisdom is an amalgamation of strength and weakness, of a shared conflict of intellectual faculties, both good and bad, right and wrong. This is the way to be “above” exactly those dualities, by synthesizing both. We cannot think of it as either pure strength or pure being, or pure knowing, but a hybrid, just as genius is a hybrid of an organic structure of mind, body and spirit. It is a being of motivation towards an ideal, not the ideal itself. The approach to the nature of wisdom, which is the endeavor of this work, concerns how to merge with it as a force and harness it into ourselves. Let us begin with the a priori state, which is the latent condition of being organically fertile for the growth of raw mental stimuli, after that begins the ordering process of the stimuli into paradigms of reasoning, then into structures of epistemology, and then into definitive and subjective concepts representative of objects in reality. The question is what comes after this? We are content once knowledge is acquired, but there is the enduring problem of understanding, which creates such things as introspection, reflection, retrospection, contemplation, spirituality, intuition. These are the anomalies of mind that make up the spirit of wisdom. But such things have always carried with them a mark of irony, because they are propositional notions of a higher consciousness but not empirical objects. We must not concern ourselves with any one of these vagaries, but to harness them into this same amalgamation. We must not be stunted or strapped down by reservations of any kind, but continuously strive to surpass them.

The truest form of wisdom, that I can fathom, is that of using the motivation for transcendence. The desire to reach the ideal is the common motivator, but the motivation itself can be even greater as it is the magnet for the energies needed to strive for that goal. This motivation, this impetus, for the highest awareness, the most superior man, is what must be sought as the ideal. The path to the absolute, is this great power impetus that is the potential for greatness of spirit, of wisdom. We must, as men of learning, adapt to walking this path and overcome our knowledge and use it as coal to feed the fire of this attainment however possible in the face of our strengths and weaknesses. We must harness both strength and weakness and never idealize either. Stronger requires more weakness. Both being harmonious. This path of strength and weakness is the force of change to the highest point of superiority and wisdom. We must not resist weakness, as we should harness it as we would any other force within us. We must not worship strength, as we should preserve it to reach a higher degree of quality. We should never feel we have wisdom until we are dead.


Authors note
These writings are not random, but follow a pattern of thought, pertaining to a composite understanding, an illustrative sketch of what I endeavor to achieve for the ideas given in the preface. Every aphorism is correlated to the following, and/or the preceding in some way or another, and some are even offshoots of each other with either a clearer view, or a more incisive one. Constructing a cohesive aggregate is my entire aim. Whether I have succeeded or not, only history will tell.


The Path:
In the world in between,
After the tide crashes,
There lies the respite of the impact,
A remembrance,
Of all civilizations past,
Of all the struggle past,
Into one steady, ever so steady moment of,
Suffering of glory,
Suffering of memory,
Suffering of comfort,
Suffering of Destiny.
The cloak of the owl’s gaze,
The silence of the promise of Gods dancing
In a circle of might and whispers,
A whispering end of death and toil,
Until the moment is long lost,
And the opened eyes,
Peer back into the chaos of purpose.




1
The basis of wisdom is melancholy and solitude, not by choice but by the nature of its means, which is the treachery of truth.

2
It is a grave folly of the wise, to misplace his attention. To look at one part, is to ignore another. He should be processing all parts, no matter if his attention is upon them.

3
The mind should never be condensed into a mere dichotomy of objectivity/subjectivity.  The temperamental manifestations of this interconnectivity, should as well, very seriously be considered the strength or weakness of objects to their subjects.

4
When one becomes more conscious of the pattern of the masses to misconceive, one places further importance upon truthful verisimilitude; thus, he makes himself a beacon for the wandering artist to find a safe haven.

5
A sight that is too receptive will further make its abstract center denser until it implodes.  

6
When one lives to belong instead of to become, then any belief is only a practical means to be without any belief at all.

7
All minds go through a state of in between empiricism where they sift through stimuli to produce an ordered objective. Being trapped in between the initiative and the change, is the unconsciousness of nihilism reacting to the consciousness of its comforting idealism.

8
When power falls into the hands of the simple man, he leaves it on a mantel to be admired and idealized, when power falls into the hands of a wise man, he uses it to dominate everything.

9
Aloofness is only effective when it is connected to indifference.

10
The one who hates ego, hates exactly that which prompts him to say it.

11
Wearing the sheep’s skin, for those with the inability to surpass their own unconscious natures, means that they will never know when or how to take it off.

12
Weakness has a festering power to become discontent.

13
What is out of balance will be exaggerated to compensate for its diminished degree; all that is praised as an ultimate good, is what has become corrupted or destroyed. Modern society is a wasteland of heavenly goods.

14
“If such there be, yet grant me this at least:
Man differs more from man, than man from beast.”- John Wilmot. There is no higher intellect which can eliminate the nobility of impulse.

15
Risk-taking is the drive to affirm the value of principles.

16
The art of letting go, of walking away, of accepting loss, of feeling the last fleeting moments of what will never again be yours, of watching it fade into a memory, of seeing its sorrowful face glean its last teardrop, of weeping at the emptiness…such magnificently beautiful life.

17
The masculine radiance is not threatening, nor insulting, nor mocking, nor tyrannical, nor frightening, it is human, all too human.

18
Absurdism is that awareness of nature of hopeless humor with that slight tinge of hope.

19
Two parts of Will: Savagery and calmness. Genius is a synthesis of both.

20
The most insidious and sophisticated way to poison Man’s spirit is to render him guilty.

21
Love is a form of barbarism.
22
The new age man makes himself a God of wisdom, by proclaiming truth is not absolute, thus freeing himself from having wisdom.
23
The morality of the modern hedonist is his mindless slavery to the illusory nobility of work in capitalism; his redeeming asceticism.

24
Indifference attracts derision.
25
Freedom is impossible, but free-flowing.
26
The tradition of individualism, is the tradition of jaded oblivion.
27
Weakness determines greater degrees of strength. To most moderns, strength means to be without any weakness at all. They fear weakness, as they fear themselves and their own humanity. They are convinced of a suspended indomitability.
28
Pain is the file upon which wisdom is sharpened.
29
Rationalism is reason’s crude doppelganger.
30
When such things as profanity, crudity, lewdness lose their shock value, thus society has already lost its own.
31
A small, simple grievance can be the difference between a total collapse and a gradual adaptation.
32
If we understand that to be detached from human affairs is an act of observatory practice than we can see how this affects the collective mindset that bases itself on constant reciprocation of a shared identity.

Firstly, genuine strength lies, not in passivity, but in the self-recognition that requires no constant need to be exercised due to the reason that its quality depends not on validation from those of others but of the awareness of the presence of strength in oneself, in its active idleness.

Secondly, pretentious strength comes from a lacking of power from predetermined skill sets and must find its worth or elevation through a mutual exchange or inclusive/collective valuation, which give it strength.

The problem with indifference is its encouragement of power in the weak.

33
Instabilities of strength are the fluctuations of weakness.
34
Potential is inert without impetus. Even a fool has potential.
35
Falling under the power of another, is merely the fixation on an aspiring ideal.
36
The truly inventive soul draws from the meaninglessness of existence, the humor of nature.
37
Social dependence is a false manifestation of one’s power in others.
38
Let not reason become a plague in your life.
39
Descartes Cogito is a Priori starting point of self-valuation to self-projection to self-identification. Subjects are the abstractions of the objects the self identifies with, to a greater or lesser degree. However, the precision of this degree is dependent upon the awareness and its foundation on memory. To say there ‘is and isn’t a self’ is stagnate and accomplishes nothing more than reinforcing an existential conundrum that keeps one in mental limbo.

The challenge is to surpass one point of comparison to reach another, more sophisticated point where selfness establishes a deeper connection to the world giving the subject a relationship to its object that goes beyond mere juxtaposition as a reference. This is the challenge of the Overman.
40
Those simple minds with superiority complexes, will always humble themselves before truth and act as its indisputable messengers.
41
Humanizing genius is to weaken it.
42
Truth is truth and a voice of reason can come in many forms, some lucid and others more bizarre, but undeniable either way.
43
The one who uses the piety of his cause to bring about the ultimate destruction of it, is a sophisticated madman.
44
The last bastion of spirituality left in modernity, is to become irrational.
45
Animals work relentlessly, tirelessly to survive; thus, man should walk in stride with his fellow lower species and work relentlessly, tirelessly, to conquer.


46
A Dostoevskian disposition is the most pleasant suffering a man can hope to endure. Only in this tormenting yet passionate state can he realize he is a stranger to the world and his era, and thus a greater awareness of his own weakness is reached.
47
Modern man longs for reason, but not its consequences.
48
The subversion of strength is humbleness.
49
“He who attains his Ideal, by that very fact, transcends it”. –Nietzsche
Man must overcome the idea of Man.
Genius is neither Dionysian nor Apollonian, but the timelessness of suffering. Genius has no connection to Godhood, because it is not the singularity, it is the passing over it.
Genius is seeing the morbid allure of madness while keeping it at bay.
50
Modern women are only a bad performance of femininity.
51
Internalizing strength is unwittingly reverting it back to weakness.
52
Shame retains dignity, guilt demeans it.
53
The progressive mind, rejoices in change, not as a force of nature, but as an antidote to themselves.
54
To what degree a man allows himself to be occupied with sex, determines the success or failure of himself.
55
Most self-destructive people are doing nothing besides being distracted.
56
A main avenue the modern soul takes to avenge its lack of passion and identity upon the world, is to love it to death.
57
The man who hates and is hated, is one who enjoys the pursuit of meaning in society.
58
Every interaction carries with it a subtle extinguishment of oneself. Solitude is the only hope to quell the loss of oneself; and to choose how to die every day.  
59
The test of Genius is how accurate it becomes in sync with time. How well it orders its chaos of strength.
Artistry, the ability to intellectually order the fluctuations of patterns in reality into a creatively infused force, is the impetus of genius; without an imaginative versatility of mind, genius succumbs to the madness of immutable absolution.
60
We are our own pallbearers; we are our own light in our own darkness.

61
Intellectuality=passive, subtle, feminine.
Visceral/sensual=active, conflictual, masculine.
62
The one who is most vociferous about possessing strength is the one who lacks it most. Beware, as those who lack power the most will be the cleverest in ostentatious piety or ostentatiousness.
63
The idea of ‘God’ hijacks reason through ideas such as “Good” “Evil”, “Equality”.
64
Most are afraid of those special pair of eyes who can see a small detail as a connection to the whole of who they are.
65
Feigning the reluctance to talk about oneself is a clever tactic to transfer the burden of that vain indulgence to the other in the form of an obliged conversational politeness, while exuding an air of humbleness.
66
Self-deprecation following the acceptance of a compliment is the ultimate form of self-flattery.
67
The passions are not the enemy of reason, but its wellspring of power one should draw from wisely.
68
The myth of Sisyphus comes only, as Camus teaches, in that impossibly short, yet blessed moment when the boulder escapes the grasp of Sisyphus and tumbles down the slope, cruelly and temporarily releasing Man from his suffering and allowing him to ponder, ever fleetingly, the clarity of his own purpose and the vacuity of it, before he, again, resumes his fruitless struggle. The momentary window of revelation of one’s essence can be that pitiful or beautiful luminescence of a glimpse into greatness.
69
“Everyone speaks well of his heart, and no one dares to speak well of his mind”.  --La Rochefoucauld
70
One should have principles, just as a tree has roots.
71
The teacher-student relationship happens as an occurrence of nature. The beta wolves are no more aware of themselves submitting to the alpha than the student is from learning from the teacher, or the follower from following the leader.
72
Men can ever hope to achieve any worthy degree of greatness of himself if he truly believes his abilities or creations, and no one else’s, are the greatest.
73
Most mistake passion for distress, or irrationality. One should express oneself forcefully and with vigor, like Mercutio, or hot-blooded and furious like Doc Holliday as he makes of his dying body as brutally honest a weapon as he can against all the murdering pretension, or as Dostoevsky’s Mitya, embracing his own weakness for vice with a marked rationale, joyful in joylessness. Even the dramatic inebriation of Alcibiades, opining against Socrates, carried with it a purpose of Will, despite its sympathetic undertone. The pursuit of the ideal lay in all actions, and harnessing it in reason, means ejecting it through passion.
74
It is a rare occurrence indeed when one dares to consider that everything they have ever learned is wrong.
75
Being honorable lay first in honor to oneself, as being worthy of having honor.
76
When one finds that they observe others more so as animals than people, one has been gifted with a sight of sensibility whether they are aware of it or not.
77
The beguiling wonder of nature is rooted in its simplicity. One can arrive at glorious forms of self-awareness merely by allowing their attention and thoughts to be immersed in some single natural object; the swaying of a tree, the scurrying of a small creature, or even the immobile position of a rock. Thoreau describes a lake as an eye of the earth, glistening and emanating life while remaining still and steady, peaceful. In the active, yet collected stirring of nature, we find the simplicity of our thoughts reflected in its eyes. The turmoil of ourselves finds a resting place to regroup into that solace that opens up the doors to the very nature of our thoughts that seem to be congruent with the undulations of the earth. The thoughts of the earth speaking back to us, and the still, clarity of its thoughts echoing the truth of our own.
78
The hierarchical essence of existence lay in the very raw fact that strength succeeds weakness. The elimination of hierarchy results not in the elimination of hierarchy at all, but only the inversion/subversion of it creating a ghastly world of disorder, also known as “modernity”.
79
The weakness of men of power is ennui, while the power of men of weakness is rapacity.
80
Be vigilant of the unsavory person who attempts to oblige you to respect them.


81
Being relaxed and receptive in conversation indicates a balanced temperament of graceful intelligence. The one who constantly interrupts during conversation is truly a form of individual on par with the lowest dregs of society.
82
The only time an idiot can be tolerated, is if he himself is acceptable of his own idiocy and has a genuine kind of unpretentiousness to compliment it.
83
There is a kind of Dionysian-stoicism to the great man who becomes self-destructive. The rapture of giving oneself over to the chaos of existence; wisdom in chaos.
It is when self-destruction becomes not merely a justified pleasure or need, but a principle, that makes it distinctly a form of self-destruction of the wise or superior. The wise man is conscious of why he self-destructs in vice and thus transmutes the meaninglessness of it by infusing it with virtue which he reasons to be a corollary to his superiority.
“The most refined folly is begotten by the most refined wisdom” -La Rochefoucauld.
The melancholy/nihilism of the quality of strength and its inevitable demise inspires the self-destruction of the superior man. He is a man who has ironically become a self-loather of his own power, that perhaps it will never reach the ideal dominion he longs for and his self-destruction is the temporary respite that comforts this intuited injustice.
84
Modernity is like a super-cooperative ant colony but with the absence of a queen.


85
Existence is naturally based on exploitation. One will find a great deal of peace when they accept that every action comes with a cost-benefit element, a goal or a desire for reward and that nothing is free from the demands of one’s own personal economy. This is how love becomes truly strong; success, truly productive.
86
The preachers of utopian equality only love to be its preachers.
87
The commonality that leadership shares with group mentality is the suppression of individual thought for the sake of an inclusive consensus, a level of mindlessness. They merely attribute to it a philosophical method.
88
If one is able to sincerely appreciate the idea of suffering and that everything inevitably comes with some small or large cost of suffering, they will be increasingly less annoyed by life in general. This is the essence of the pessimistic temperament.
89
The only way to manage one’s sanity in group social situations is to know where the escape routes are.
90
What meditation is to the monk, indifference is to the superior.
91
Grand power is like a cloud burst of consistent pouring rain, while mediocre power alternates between bursts of rain, to trickles, to passive lolling.


92
Old age and youth share a fragility of spirit. Old age only becomes tragic when one acquiesces to the same desperation of superficial validation or attention from the fickleness of others, which dominated their youth.
93
How strong was the seemingly devout ascetic man who swooned so easily from the whims a woman?
94
This is the battle cry of the oppressed: that the burden of human weakness, given its innateness in all, by default, proves equality and their right to power or uniqueness. The idiocy of said argument, if it were true, their alleged strength by default of this rationale, should be sufficient enough where they wouldn’t have to even make contentions of entitlement or rights!
95
The honorable man is inextricably linked to his spiritual predisposition of duty. Regardless of what hardship befalls him, or what deplorable or painful circumstance he is subjected to, if there is no other choice but to endure, he will endure. This is the melancholy of being loyal to duty. It is adaptability, acceptance and honor without reason. The blind willingness to endure is the nature of honor.
96
Most men are meant for survival, some for participation, some for exploitation, some for skill, but the ones who enrich and revolutionize all the world around them, they are meant for Destiny.
97
The man of action, is the instinct of genius.
98
The natural state of truth is suffering. Happiness is the absence of truth.
99
Cynicism is the best defense against being wrong.
100
The last resort of an idiotic person, is to rationalize the endless pattern of exposures of their idiocy, into misunderstood superiority.

101
Strength is a continuity; weakness a stagnation.
102
Science for the modern must be free of his nature. It must be anti-human, a separate consciousness; a ghost. By making it divine does he find redemption in his inferiority.
103
Every woman has a chastity complex. The inherent drive to protect herself, to safeguard her womb, is transmitted into consciousness and becomes shallow self-absorption and vanity, distinct to her nature.
104
When one is inclined to use woman as a metaphor, one has appropriately placed her in her rightful place and grasped to some extent, the uniqueness of her nature.
105
To endure the unendurable, is to harness the power of the inevitability of mortality.



106
To overcome something is not to reject it, but to stow it and integrate it into one’s constitution.
107
A good friend is one who leaves you alone, yet always remains around.
108
Woman’s existential discontent with her sexuality is her nihilism.
109
The modern Socratic epigram is: knowing everything, by knowing nothing.
110
It is always the war with ourselves that becomes the projection of the war against the world. The world displaces our self, that is the war.
111
Anyone with an earnest aversion to solitude can never be capable of reaching any caliber of a formidable thinker.
112
You can feel it in your bones, the days that carry the saturations of blood from a war that has been fought as a blaze of glory with more than one weapon but it is not the smites that injure the spirit but the lingering throbbing of pain that presses down on you; And then…time.
113
It is the unspoken truths of reality which float around, lingering amongst the masses while they carefully maneuver around them at all times. These truths lay dormant waiting to be galvanized by that one thinker who smells the blood of honesty in the air.
114
Personal beliefs and truth are two colors that when combined will result in a clear or murky appearance.
115
Those beneath us, we should not use for our validation, for we already have validated ourselves. The intelligence of the universe is social. Accordingly, it has made the inferior things for the sake of the superior, and it has fitted the superior to one another—Marcus Aurelius
116
Those who channel their passion, aggression and daemonic energies into a clear purpose, are simply higher beings actualizing natural drives.
117
The modern’s obsession with happiness is a desperate distraction from nihilism.
118
The mind has its relationship to the hierarchy of the world, that is to say, to the part of the world without reason. Those who can see it, and those who cannot. This is its revelation of itself.
119
Man can only hope to reach the apex of himself by expelling his energies into the highest stratosphere of expression; a looking beyond; A Wagnerian expression in all its refulgence of uncertainty and reason.
This is why passion is so disturbing to moderns: it is the feminine of reason, its mirth, its unfettered riskiness into the unknowable. This is Nietzsche’s overcast of Dionysian Pessimism, choking the life out of modern man and culture, with life.


120
The solitary man is never disconnected from the world, his solitude is merely the peaceful home with the door shut, while loneliness is the door that hangs ajar.
121
Individuality, is the principled pettiness of the self.
122
Modern society’s materializing the idea of the “Good”, took it out of philosophy and into madness.
123
Woman-hating, is Man hopelessly enslaved to his own sexuality.
124
Acceptance of nature is yet one of the many hues of intuitive intelligence, denial is the ironically very intelligent one.
125
The desecration of genius is its imprisonment not into science, or reason, or logic, or even faith, but into priesthood, into priestliness, a conniving faith of absolution; of resolve.
126
The only freedom for the modern is the denial of the self, their beloved Blank Slate. The modern’s power is based on knowing everything and understanding nothing.
127
The best killer is the artist with just a touch of the scientist.


128
Beauty in modern culture is like a paintbrush in the hands of an inferior artist, only ugly and disturbing renderings can be had.
129
The Crows gather before their dead, what Crow will you be in your wake of dead? What Crow will I be when I gather before you?
130
Why do some men obsess over the ideals of those particular greats, for lifetimes on end?  The highest honor, would be to strive to attain their very souls, to come as close as possible to the nature of their messages that lie far beyond the innuendo, but derive from within their hearts, their desires and innermost thoughts; their essence. Many may understand a great mind, but few will ever possess it.
131
There is the love of self who searches for eyes, and one which is content with their own.
132
Good people love a great man they can spit on if they need to.
133
The nihilistic rejection or distaste for existence manifests in the need for solutions.
134
The feminine mystique is for innuendo, for seduction, for pretension. The masculine mystique is for quietly quaking the earth.

133
Melancholy is nature attempting to speak to us.
134
The awareness that one is living in a primitive era, is when anything is shunned which does not lead to some form of either progress or acquisition.
135
It is the dissolution of imagination that leads to the stunted perspective. To be stuck only in the tangibility of things is partially seeing and partially being blind.
136
Darkness should be a reconnoiter of the soul, but never its sojourn.
137
A culture of mockery, cynicism, flippancy; is a culture of cowardice to face seriously its own inferiority.
138
A man hates, more than loves, a woman who offers herself to him easily. He hates, more than loves, a woman who makes him chase her. The irony is the bounty of her is congruent.
139
The madness of nihilism becomes personified in intense psychological ambivalence; the emptiness of the spirit, thrashing against the confines of its dark walls.
It is the desperate faith of something in us, or outside us that is a part of spiritual anatomy, which cannot be denied, as nature cannot be denied. The negation of the spirit, of the simple small tendencies, the proclivities, the affinities, will ultimately declare, “what are you saying, if you say enough?!”
140
I say, take a moment to rejoice in the majesty of the great tales, and hymns and myths and ideas of your era, as they are the sorrowful memories that will be no more; rejoice in the resounding completion of their ends, of the cessation of their fleeting brilliance, because you have just understood a glimmer of a rare part of the world that most only notice in passing. You have been given a touch of the real!

141
We should look upon Evola’s “Differentiated Man”, as not the ideal, but the critical starting point to rekindle an awareness of a higher destiny. The destiny of the natural presence of the past; of the natural course of all things.
142

One should become, in a sense, mathematical in approaching an idea, in that only its potential, its quantifiable reach into the qualifiable should be pursued.

151
The absolution of the ideal of life (omniscience/ omnipotence) is interchangeable with the ideal of the denial of life (nihilism) in that they both aim to resolve the conflict of need. Both presuppose an end; the nihilistic direction is more spiritual and cultural, while the life-affirmative, is more ancient.
This sheds greater light on Nietzsche’s negative paradigm toward stoicism and the “ascetic ideal”.

Man is born for war, war against others, against nations, against ideas, against himself. In domesticated environments, he simply finds ways to spill blood through socialized rules of conduct and pretension.

Above Strength and Weakness Empty
PostSubject: Re: Above Strength and Weakness Above Strength and Weakness EmptyMon Jan 13, 2020 6:06 pm

191
Nihilism is the ideological manifestation of primal nature. Hence its allure.
192
Politics is philosophy’s abomination.
193
The modern only embraces philosophy as a concession. To him, it is like a petty law he chooses to be tolerant of for the sake of civility, while internally he despises and mocks it.
194
The true philosopher is not present. He is nowhere to be seen or heard from.
195
There are two types of intelligent men: the man who is humble in his gifts, and the man who actively uses his gifts to advance himself to boundless power.
196
To be part of society is to be part of a custom. It demands nothing more than pretention.
197
Entrusting your opinions to your own judgment, is the only real path to some semblance of power. At the very least, you are more aware than most.

198
Delve into the darkness of your nature. What makes a man dangerous is his ability to give everything to something.
199
The question is not who can see the furthest, the deepest or the grandest. The question is do you?
200
It is intellectually respectable to leave oneself at the whims of chaos. When you begin doing it for its own sake, is when you become chaos.
201
Principles are what tame reason and imagination does not free it but releases it.
202
A female’s dainty and sensual playfulness is the heroism of her nature.
203
Every man should be a civilized savage.
204
You always must be ready to give up everything for something greater and suffer for everything.
205
You can be of greatness that rumbles and fades away or that scorches the earth into a timeless scar.
206
There is no one idea that exists to account for everything or even most things. It is the pattern of one string of ideas that extends indefinitely but contains links which strengthen its connection with every new awareness.
207
Strength for the weak is like a taut band that breaks under too great of tension. Not strength against them, but of their own momentary capacity for it. They have no stomach for it.
208
Strength can be just as stagnate as weakness, and weakness, just as resilient as strength. There is strength, and there is to be strong. The weak can be strong and those with strength can be just as weak but immovable. The difference is purpose.
209
There are ordered and disordered forms of intelligence. The stability of the objective the intellectual pursuit is directed toward, determines its quality and its longevity. Anyone can know, some can be smart, but only a few can see.
Do you think someone is worthwhile because they have common sense? What is common sense? It is the learned acumens of a collective mindset based on simple mores of conduct and rudimentary values. It is an ability for biological recognition of needs and etiquettes. Therefore, any child can be intelligent in this respect. A mark of intelligence is not having intelligence, but only being swayed by it, periodically.
The “mad genius”, is the soul we think of as a point of order in chaos, like a tempestuous star held strong by a center of gravity. Common sense? Let that be the cosmic matter traveling and landing on anything. If an objective is absent from intelligence, then it remains in the unstable throes of infancy. A superior mind that is too dependent on its physiology is this kind of chaotic intellect. A mind surrendering to the wiles of its strengths; to its feminine dance. As where one that absorbs physical chemistry into an act of thinking is the mind that will absorb all else that is around it until it becomes too strong to move at all.


210
You are alive and therefore in control of all that you are.
211
The focused unpredictability of the Will is the power of Will.
212
Taking the fundamental nature of an idea or a cause to its logical conclusion is a nobility of commitment. Even in madness, there is a logic. One should have the courage to carry the weight of something until it destroys or elevates them. What matters most, if it should, is bringing the meaning of such a thing--whether reason is a part of it or not--to fruition. Or at the very least, stay out of the way of the moving storm so that it may do its business of razing some earth to the ground. Or, express some mad admiration for that which has the ambition to fulfill its purpose however beautiful or ugly. Nothing is about what pleases us.
213
Finding a single trait of strength in something is no reason to sanctify it.
214
Being in a position of power while reinforcing the same ideas and beliefs of the simple masses, doesn’t make you an elite, it makes you another mass fool wearing a pearl necklace.
215
There is, at times of chance, an inadvertent falling out of hierarchy, which one should seize upon to achieve something grand.
216
A man of greatness is not a man of mind, but of being.
217
There is an intrinsic power of duty, that when followed, elevates the spirit.
218
Invincibility lies in death. There is nothing more evoking of fear in others, and empowering, than one who is devotedly ready, always, to die.
219
Genius lacks functionality and survivalism.
220
Most who learn do not know how to learn, and most who have learned do not understand what they have learned.
221
Infinity is a degeneration, not an ascension.
222
Every breath we expel, every word we utter, every laugh we make and every action we take, is a desperate aversion of death.
223
Distinguish yourself from the inferiority of the mediocre. There is no shame in this. There is, however, only the tragedy that you may be gravely mistaken.
224
Primitiveness is not a reversion to nature, but being imprisoned by it.
225
Seriousness is an expression of reason. One who takes themselves serious more often, finds themselves, at the very least, looking around.
226
A culture that lives only for ideas and idealism, denies biology, denies its history, denies nature, denies life and reality.

227
Those thinkers, whose ideas are subject to be summarized into a category of thought processes, are stagnate. It is the ones, whose ideas are so nuanced they remain in a timeless state of flux, continuously altering the colors of the sky, and deepening the panorama of what is already there to be seen.
228
Idiots are the most honest people.
229
The irony of modern individualism is that it acts not as a purge of nature’s competition, but as its impetus.
230
If one is wise, they will take the knowledge of the inevitability of their death profoundly seriously. It is these spirits who are capable, in this approach, of the strictest forms of discipline and asceticism to ascend to an apex of their will, because the certainty of death offers a well of infinite power to draw from that is based on its finite point of direction.
231
Comprehension does not always indicate intelligence.
232
The sheltered mind will always believe there is no war happening because they see no blood being spilled.
233
The weak should be left to build their Utopias, so that the strong may conquer them.
234
The madness of genius: A lens that is too fine may crack.
235
Americanism is a sick form of asceticism.
236
The elderly and the infant states. Two poles based on the same predisposition with dynamical differences, but natural conditions of death and weakness. Both are trapped; trapped within the same paradigm of impossibility.
237
Wisdom is the joy of dying.
238
Food is not for gluttony, but for nourishment, drink is not for inebriation but for hydration, ideas are not for proof, but for thinking.
239
Genius is based on patterns of expressions of power, and how often that pattern repeats itself; it is a splash in the water with the waves being either soft and subtle or disruptive and erratic.
240
The human spirit is a boiling cauldron of need and expression. Modern environments reduce this boiling point to a low simmer and overtime making the contents unnatural. Thus, when a high boiling point is reached, what overflows is a contamination that is ugly or freakish.

241
The academic’s relationship with philosophy is one of childish fascination. He has no real understanding of what it is but feels and intuits its essence. He becomes seduced and enamored with its charms and then excitedly runs back to his fellow brethren of academics to tell them what he experienced with the same fervor and learned enthusiasm that he was taught.
242
Personalizing philosophy is a sign of a dull mediocre mind.
243
Reading great thinkers can either inspire you to create, or confound you.
244
The desire in man to heighten his ideals into transcendentalism, is the natural expression of Will; its gravitation into morality is the instinct of idealism finding its palatable resting place.
245
Analytic philosophy, was the grievous inception of decadent philosophy. Answers and solutions, became the thoughts and ideas.
246
A higher destiny cannot be achieved without a force of surrender.
247
Wise men who seek out the company of other supposed wise men, lack confidence in their wisdom. Wise men who dislike the company of other wise men know they are wise and need no validation from such men and what is left would only be the vexation of the casual conversation.
248
Those who consistently claim to have suffered more than others, are the most contemptible and stupidest moral tyrants around.
249
Dostoevsky spoke of the highest point of awareness one can reach during his epileptic seizures. He spoke of these episodes as a kind of “luminescence of profound knowledge”. The lesson is that truth is dependent on our ability to see it, as Goethe says: “Nature hides God, but not from everyone!”
250
Those who believe their oratorical skills or ability to verbally articulate with ease and sophistication is a form of intelligence, are clueless to the fact that like education, it is merely acquired and learned ability based on a primitive instinct: language. Their efficiency of language reverts them back to a subordinate primal state of mindless hive cooperation, making them the lowest animal on the totem.
251
Solitude is natural ego.
252
Every artist should not fear being modern but being modernized.
253
Pretense can only conceal so much before nature clarifies. Never pay attention to what people say but what draws their attention in moments or what piques their immediate interest.
254
Simple minds give themselves away by how ardently they must argue something down to every last detail, because they are incapable of grasping the whole parts.
255
The noble warrior spirit in philosophy is recognizing preoccupations like envy and covetousness, as the deficiencies of wisdom.
256
Peter the Great’s half-sister attempted to usurp his throne with indolent self-indulgent pursuit of power, having ample time while he was in adolescence to do it and yet, could not find a way to secure a lasting throne before he came along, ousting her with little effort and going on to revolutionize everything. A sword must be wielded, lest it be left to gather dust outside its sheath.
257
One can demonstrate strength by luck or by talent. It is wise not to confuse the two.
258
A layman’s belief in God are matters of fear; a philosopher’s belief in God, matters of Power.
259
The Wanderer is the archetype of the philosopher’s psychology that must be explored by every man pursuing truth.
260
Feminine chaos is a swirling cloud of stinging bees, Man’s reason is the repellant cloak that allows him to walk through the cloud, unharmed, and reach the other side of quiet clarity.
261
Be aware of how you evolve, it could be too rapid or too listless, either way, change inevitably ambushes you into an immediate awakening of power.
262
The songs of heroes are sung softly in high treetops, beckoning only the ones with the ears to hear them.
263
Nietzsche was the genius of teaching us to overcome him.
264
Savagery, war and violence are the building blocks of civilization, which few are willing to use.

265
The owl keeps itself detached from its prey, perched on high terrain, peering down, observing every motion, catching every movement. It does not need to be near its prey to know what it is, where it is, or how to kill it.
266
Captivation must follow disillusion, in order for wisdom to germinate.
267
Most great men are venerated posthumously, because once their egos have expired, there remains no threat to resist and their Will is easier to submit to, when it can now be made into one’s own.
268
One becomes a true slave when they reach a point of conscious servitude.
269
The timeless challenge of philosophy is not to run away with its relativistic charms and wiles. The woman must be tamed.
270
Women are both afraid and enamored by Man’s nature. Feminism cultivates the fear.
271
A refined and sophisticated civil veneer can be used as a license for mindless hedonism.
272
Passions should be exercised like physical fitness underneath sheltered environments. One should revere the nobility of being enraged at indignities, even at the cost of sagacious temperance.
273
The exclusionary nature of wisdom has to do not so much with aristocracy, as with preventing a limb from being chopped off by mediocrity.
274
What purpose is there to conflict if it does not resolve itself in immolation? A man who fights another man with the intention and Will to kill or be killed, fulfills the purpose of his existence greater than the one who intends to opt out when it becomes too bloody. The embrace of death is the affirmation of life; a spiritual insemination.
275
Mockery and cynicism are the feminine traits of superiority. Therefore, moderns master these traits to become superiorly inferior.
276
The awareness that human life is a farce is the dreadful curse of wisdom.
277
The legacy of great philosophers is to build as many paths to the truth as possible. The legacy of even greater ones is to build one.
278
The marker of any worthwhile man is one who perceives everything in hierarchical terms.
279
The noble man finds such things as “friend” “brother” “love” to be special rarities, which is why he never has them.
280
Those with childlike intelligence will become jubilant when they spontaneously reach an insightful realization about something, as where one who is more intellectually gifted will be unflappable as these realizations occur to them constantly.
281
When too many cheap products are produced you amass more garbage than usable products. In an idealistic age, it is the excess of their delusional refuse.
282
Modernity has only ever been able to distinguish itself by “rationalism”, not ‘reason’. There is no reason for its basis in being rational.
283
Politics to a philosopher is like the sun. If he is fixated on it for too long he will become blinded.
284
Statistical knowledge is about manipulation and control of reality. This is why moderns are so enamored with it, they confuse control for power, knowledge for intelligence and facts for original thoughts.
285
In modernity, knowledge is sold and commodified, and wisdom is kept in a museum.
286
It is easier to look at one’s reflection in a mirror than in solitude.
287
The philosopher should always think of himself as a conduit for wisdom but never its proprietor.
288
Masculine isolation is only proper for the benefit of wisdom, not civilization.
289
Moderns exalt life so obsessively because death would qualify the standard of how they lived. Life is the reprieve for them, not from the fear of death, but of its profound truth.
290
Nihilism is Pandora’s box for the philosopher.
291
Technological progress is not about usurping man’s human nature, but of enslaving him to it.
292
A clever idea or person positing an aspect of convincing focused logic while being tainted with illusions is like a mirage, the initial sight of it is tantalizing, until you come to your senses.
293
Moderns do not do philosophy, they use it.
294
The modern spiritual impoverishment of work, subverted the predisposed penchant of the nobility of work.
295
The idea of Greatness has become one of skill, which is why so few have it. That it is treated as a fleeting fascination, is why so few strive for it.
296
Idiots have a spirit of ownership.


297
Average people retreat back to the home of a group when they have visited themselves enough.
298
All battles, all wars, are waged inside ourselves. The world is the indifferent spectator.
299
There is a proclivity of sensual abandonment to power for both the strong and the weak. The mightiest of all are those who stymie this force that affects them both.
300
Moderns are murderous savages. They will murder you not only with stupidity, but with intelligence. Not only with hate but with compassion.

PostSubject: Re: Above Strength and Weakness Above Strength and Weakness EmptyMon Jan 13, 2020 6:08 pm

301
The ones who appoint themselves to be a voice of reason for a people and culture, express a latent need to become men of action, not reason.
302
The wisdom of moderns amounts to how many times they can get away with being right.
303
The genius of woman is her joyous embrace, not domination, of the masculine. When she allows its force to guide her, to not resist, she becomes a paragon of beauty.
304
The purpose of wisdom is to create patterns that lead to ever clearer patterns and not to become enamored by any one corollary within the pattern, mistaking it for a solution, or an absolute.
305
The ennui of the superior man comes from the throne of solitude coupled with the loneliness of the creative soul.
306
The nature of stupidity is extroverted and boisterous, while the nature of cowardice is reticent, lurking. Together they make such creatures as the sophist, the revolutionary or the careerist.
307
Just like physical exercise stresses the body to become strong, the acquirement of knowledge must enable the mind to become wise.
308
An overactive self-awareness is a mark of an overactive intelligence.
309
A test of one’s perception upon studying other thinkers, is to discern how reflective their words are to their thoughts, and their thoughts to their natures.
310
Life, for the modern is something that is around enough, like a comforting convenience, to convince them it cannot be taken away, and when it does, they become shocked that death still exists.
311
The coward exposes himself from the depth of his doubt.
312
Truth cannot be taught, only understood.


313
The power of Genius can be a pole of magnetism; in Vermeer’s ability to see so much exquisite detail of passing existence in a little room by a window. As if he needed not traverse any land to see its immensity.
314
Most of man’s problems arise from his denial of himself.
315
The Heroic soul is simply the solitary who decides to act with purpose.
316
The warrior should not immediately take the world as something to be conquered, rather, watch patiently until the world shows him how.
317
Part of the genius of the philosopher is merely to appreciate.
318
The force of nature presses against all, forcing them against their will, to succeed or fail.
319
The debilitating symptom of deeming oneself an “individual” is stupidly imprisoning oneself in their limitations. As if one would do nothing but master how to satiate their hunger.
320
The stupidity of moderns, is their confidence in doing something because they see someone else doing it, like imbecilic children imitating their betters, they will rashly attempt their hand only to hurt themselves.

321
Modernity has mastered the art of exploitation of the moral instinct, by making it artificial.
322
The nature of the fool is always mistaking luck for power.
323
A term, word, or idea of divinity is one that makes itself, self-evidently impervious to judgment while posturing as ancient or sacred.
324
One should view truth as a lone bird that glides seamlessly on a stable current of wind.
325
The damage a stupid act does to an idiot, pales in magnitude to the damage it does to the wise man
326
The posterity of modernity is proclaiming its culture without building it.
327
The process of a culture’s decent from decline to decadence to degeneration. First come the nurturing environment (absence of conflict), next the germination of mollycoddled ideas, finally the heroic monuments erected for those who fought lived and died for nothing.
328
The coward is useful in that, one can always count on them to know when to scurry away from something stronger that lurks.

329
The modern workplace is a grotesque theater where people put on costumes of power.
330
One should think about how many times in a day they have spoken, if it was too numerous to remember, then they have no memory of themselves either.
331
One should not interfere with truth anymore than with a wild animal in its natural environment. Idealizing truth is caging the animal and domesticating it.
332
Let us take a prideful thrill in choosing our adversaries, the way Nietzsche chose his in Wagner. One of the most superior ascents to the pinnacle of suffering is to relish the honorable return of power that a worthy enemy awards us by their overabundance.
333
A fool will believe that the imagination is some indulgence in the infantile whimsical abandonment to chaos, when it is the highest domain of order in dalliance with genius.
334
Social awkwardness/anxiety is a subconscious enslavement to ethical tyranny.
335
Faith to a philosopher can be that tantalizing sultry woman beckoning him into a sensual slumber. His Apollonian laughter in her face will keep him wide awake.
336
Some spontaneous saving graces can occur for the lowly; respect for the dead, a moment of courtesy or a solitary repose.
337
A philosopher sadly becomes an academic when he emulates another thinker’s thoughts as a sphere of truth to subsume most other truths. True philosophy is a mirthful dance in the ancestral catacombs of all those thinkers who honored it.
338
An academic complicates, while a philosopher simplifies. Moreover, complication is confused for complexity, and simplification for mundanity.
339
What constitutes a pseudo-intellectual is his immediate claim to have already understood obvious things when they are pointed out to him by those who are smarter than he is.
340
Everyone possesses the ability to think. Few actually do.
341
The modern mockery of philosophy is far more preferred to the horror of its serious attempts to apply it.
342
Cultivating wisdom means returning to it again and again and discovering something new each time.
343
Strength can assail and conquer, but weakness has the ability to infect and spread. Insidiousness is the vile proclivity of strength.
344
Man’s power is obsessed with domination.
Ancient power cares nothing for it.
345
The banter and commotion of a group is like a mating call to lower thinking types, and an unveiling of hidden impulses by those who preen ‘solitary independence’.
346
The mergence with technological progress, is the religious faith in mindless animality.
347
Taking the vocation of thinking into politics is the discontent with one’s own ideas.
348
It is not enough to venerate the natural superiority/inferior necessity of the hierarchy; one must know where they are in it.
349
Those who take up a mission to resolve social injustices, exacerbate the banalities and idiocies in themselves and perpetuate the banalities and idiocies of the injustices.
350
The modern pedant uses whimsical cliché knowledge about human nature the same way he uses self-aggrandizing material possessions.

351
Those who eloquently express sadness and sympathy for the suffering of strangers, is like a pompous wine connoisseur didactically explaining a tasting.
352
The Stoics knew more about philosophy than Nietzsche merited them with. It was in spite of their ethical misgivings and preoccupations, that centered them to a clarity of thought process that was built brick by brick. They believed in using principles of conduct as beacons of lucidity to understand as clearly as possible why they needed them, they considered them nature's poles of perception to a higher awareness. Thus, it was their understanding of nature that distinguished them commendably. It was an incompatible relationship. Nietzsche found the chaos in nature, while the Stoics found the order.
353
A man’s belief in God is like a buffoon hopelessly lost and dying in a desert, but still enraptured and empowered by the comforting reassurance of diamonds he carries in his pocket.
354
The modern emptiness of purpose is exemplified by their belief that to be honorable means to be ‘praiseworthy’.
355
The study of ideas is the study of the synchronicity of patterns.
356
Reading is a meaningful intellectual activity meant to stimulate productive thought processes. Therefore, one who says they “read for enjoyment” is as daft as saying they “drink water for fun”.
357
Morality can be either idealized, believed or felt; all are illusions.
358
Hedonistic indulgences as stress relieving vices are used by most in the form of drug stimulation or festive abandonment. For the wise man, he indulges in the humorous company of imbeciles which can be just as bad.
359
Modern sheltering malnourishes the soul. After a long enough period of time, it will either become ill and decrepit, or rabid and volatile.
360
Modernity is so blindly obsessed with science, that they will classify any cognitive activity as one that is ‘based on evidence’. Because philosophy—an art form----caters to logic in some ways, it too suffers the butchering of their proof fanaticism.
361
A tyrant is one who imitates wisdom. A warrior is one who lives it.
362
One must rejoice with death first to become a God.
363
The warrior revels in struggle and war, not because he is a savage, but because it is the one universal in nature that never disappoints.
364
Envy restricts a philosopher’s sight to only one eye.
365
Asceticism is defined in modernity as a total abolition of the soul, through the savage diligent nurturing of its desires.
366
One should think about cultivating wisdom as sculpting a piece of marble. One precise chip at a time, and to know well, that the marble was not meant to become a masterpiece.
367
Good philosophy is not treading into inhospitable waters too rashly or too often, but when one does, to come back with a sense of tempered rejuvenation.


368
The woman has the song of her hysteria, where the man has his song of his madness.
369
It is in the comedy of the modern believing that his soul has a purpose.
370
The pagan Gods are forms of power in nature, in the real. The monotheistic God is power in nothingness, in oblivion.
371
One becoming aware of time as an affirmation, coalesces a spiritual prowess.
372
Anxiety and uncertainty guide the academic, while hunting and dancing guide the philosopher.
373
The conviction that one is seeing things as clearly as possible, is not hubris or illusive, but profound erring.
374
Creativity is a looking back upon the past with nostalgic extrapolation.
375
The tragic parallel to the hive mentality of modernity and to the original source in the animal kingdom of bees, is that the bees make of their unconscious industriousness, a honeycomb for surviving generations. Moderns make their honeycomb to buzz and be unconscious.


376
A man of pure practical scientific devotion, should be honorable enough to boast of himself a decadent barbarian.
377
Understanding is not necessarily accepting.
378
A consumerist society is a menagerie of dissimilar animals all gnashing at each other’s throats and missing only because of the tenuous leash of moral domestication.
379
The real root of modern anxiety is the blind devotion to survival yet having no ability or idea how to fight for it.
380
Modern workaholism was the capitalistic concession, turned into a code of self-fulfillment to circumvent the emptiness of it. This is because it is the only national community that they have and it must therefore, be sanctified into a historical custom as old and accepted as table manners. It assimilated into the human soul with just enough soft common sensibility and stern ethical discipline to simulate it as a natural human need.
381
Education fails, because it attempts to use tautology as identity. It makes the self, a dull echo within its chamber.
382
Walking through a dense forest, we tend to get absorbed into the effort of moving around every tree or uneven terrain, that we can become oblivious to the rest of it.

383
Modern artists go for impact, not substance.
384
Social causes/activism are a strain of the common cold, they are effective to a moderate degree of sickness before they are fought off, only to recede and linger until they can infect again.
385
Socializing is always a primitive activity, no matter how intelligent and sophisticated it is.
386
The Christian-Pagan is Aryan man’s deepest conundrum. It is a form of transcendence of faith as a higher struggle against modern decadence, and a lessor evil of submission. Alas! The submission is what is the perpetuating element that keeps him in lockstep with the same sickness. The act, the unconscious conviction, that keeps him sallow and listless in the face of what has always been a shadow looming over his mind; a guiding executioner.
387
It is too great an endeavor to practice damage control over the manic psychological projectiles of a depraved society, we must master the art of deflecting them off of ourselves.
388
Judgment is the strongest and purest form of superiority which is why liberal democracy crusades so ruthlessly to destroy it.
389
Language is a seesaw that moderns play on.

390
The greatest conflict is one between truth and principles. Between nature and abstraction. The art of genius is to synthesize this conflict, not reconcile it.
391
Artistry is the application of inspiration.
392
Academics are relegated rogues of an institutional cultural oligarchy. Their philosophical outlook on this status encourages them to believe they are the real voices of reason.
393
Severe social domestication will instill a romantic perception on savage proclivities.
394
A woman’s sexuality is her ego.
395
A way to determine how closely one’s comprehension is connected to nature as opposed to religious faith, is to what apprehensive degree they speak of it.
396
Religious naïfs are necessary fools, while fools are necessary jesters.
397
Odysseus, was the Pagan genius of how man sifts through the chaos of his desires and finds their resting place in rational fulfillment. The Odyssey is the Pagan masterpiece of nature’s appetites and man’s fecund satiation; a Dionysian portrait of power.

398
Solitude is the summit atop chaos.
399
Music is a sensual undulation of spiritual tastes. The modern pervasion of monotonous music is an ingenious ploy to exploit this primal disposition into impulse distracting addiction.
400
Wisdom is not a pursuit of superiority but a distinction of self from survivalism. Superiority happens on its own.
401
The danger of true dominion of self is to wade into the shallow ends of the lake that will swallow it.
402
A man honors himself when using his masculine initiative to attain the woman, he sullies himself when he uses his wisdom.
403
Rationalists have the same faith in reason as a believer in God.
404
Awareness is like the body, it requires stress and exercise to endure the pain of truth.
405
Superiority is the ephemeral alleviation to the conflict of nature where weakness is a potential to a degree of strength.
406
Power over the inferior is the exemplar of the hedonist.
407
The strengthening of idiocy is by academia, the power of it is by religion.
408
Academic knowledge is the commodification of wisdom.
409
Leisure in the modern work world has turned into a prison cell that inmates retire to after slaving in cheap labor all day. The resurgence of the use-value of leisure in creativity, is the restoration of it from the dreary cell to the thrilling workshop of life and meaning.
410
The idiot, due to his submissive awareness, allows more to be absorbed in him, with the cost of not comprehending. However, because he is merely a servile conduit, he is capable of reacting to truth in strange but reliable ways as to expose it inadvertently. He is a tool of nature.
411
Living and dying by noble principles is the closest thing to real Godhood.
412
The psychotic mass killer is the servile spiritual vigilante against the slavish degenerate master of modernity.
413
Clichés is the tribalism of American Culture.
414
When philosophers say the essence of things cannot be divined, they have exposed their weakness to endure the struggle of genius.

415
The modern European man, so famished to rekindle his heroic soul, devours the spoiled Pagan scraps discarded by Christianity.
416
Genius is the soul of wisdom.
417
Idiots of history will fall into the whimsical trap of learning only about the academically tailored images of great conquerors and the palatable hardships and conflicts of events, while dismissing the blood and savagery that gave birth to them.
418
Every academic pridefully preens their understanding of the entirety of any given theory, epistemology or historical subject, when they are merely intellectual prisoners who have lost all desire to escape their cells.
419
One should be aware that the lake is not always placid but flows into treacheries.
420
The tendency to hate one’s enemies instills a blindness to their power, while respecting or knowing them allows all details of their nature to be grasped. The cost is undignified labor with the benefit of superior awareness.

Above Strength and Weakness Empty
PostSubject: Re: Above Strength and Weakness Above Strength and Weakness EmptyMon Jan 13, 2020 6:10 pm

421
Two personalities of the philosopher; one who waits, and the other who watches.
422
The higher into masculine idealization man takes himself, the feminine abruptly pulls him back down to nature, but losses strength of its grip every time.
423
Wise patience is the control of the inevitability of death.
424
It is not the usual modern mythologies of self-sufficiency, individual empowerment and self-determination which delude moderns into thinking they are important or superior, but simply because they have been allowed to subsist in private obscure sheltered hovels imagining, in undisturbed comfort that they are.
425
Imagination is wisdom that finds the path in darkness.
426
The superstition of moderns is dissimilar from that of the Middle Ages only because they have used the cloak of scientific rationalism to temporarily abate their religious anxieties, and existential insecurities, instead of submitting to them which would, at the very least, balance their inferiority. Now they believe that their submissive instinct which cries out to them, can be ignored by clinging to reason as an authority figure that will keep them disciplined in their subdued anxieties. It is the fear of the truth that reason reveals to them about the nature of their fanatical superstitions, which makes them clutch them ever tighter as a scared child would to its nurturing parent. If they did understand reason, they would never venerate it in any way. Reason has become their hedonistic indulgence to numb themselves to their frail consternation that frantically sifts through the granules of their identity until it finds another absolute to indulge in.
427
Modernity is the sophisticated genius of animal distemper.
428
One squanders more of themselves in galivant hedonism than in mindless boredom.
429
No matter the indignities against us, the war to preserve our superiority is timeless and must be waged in any way, small or large, grand or marginal, fast or gradual, hopeless or optimistic, but always with passion, resolve and purpose. That is the Hyperborean. The pursuit of superiority lies the symmetry; spiritually and physicality. The aesthetic value of our energies in aggregation. It is in symmetry that lay our potential over others and our value in existence as a challenge in itself is what powers our soul for our race; for the duty of conquering existence, because in it lies the greatest of symmetry that made us. The spirit of The Hunt, of the war, of the act of conquering is the Hyperborean drive to absorb what it was given at birth and then to beam it back in great radiance to life.
430
Modern psychosis comes from living in a way naturally alien to their human drives and exacerbating it by adding the demented belief that they are happy living it.
431
As a rule, one should place more stock in silent people, even if they turn out to be imbeciles.
432
War is a natural spiritual appendage of human nature that has been domesticated by modernity into a slovenly state, the way the ears of a domesticated dog recess and droop. The sickness it becomes is the tempestuous impulse to blindly lash out and bite savagely, unprovoked.
433
There are lies which one can use, lies one believes and lies one tolerates. The modern has made the lie an absolute he spiritually gives himself over to, losing all distinctions. His very animal survival is a lie.

434
Modernity is a museum of violence with its visitors as debonair savages.
435
Wise language is unspoken.
436
The folly of the wise is the belief that they are impervious to foolishness. The awareness of this caveat keeps them wise.
437
Spartan asceticism is the extreme discipline of Destiny.
438
The modern keeps his values, virtues and principles as souvenirs and knickknacks on a display shelf to gather dust, while his caprices, vices and degenerate impulses are put to serious pragmatic use.
439
Good and evil are as absolution and nihilism.
440
Isolation or loneliness should never be confused for solitude. It merely happens to be the case that the solitary must isolate themselves from everyday petty grievances.
441
The modern Renaissance Man learns everything about anything, without any recollection.
442
The weak and stupid find victory in egoism, as if a random space in time should feel triumphant over other random spaces.
443
The lightening is easily seen by anyone, the crack of thunder, heard by many, but the receding rumbling tones that carry away into the deepest part of the sky are known only by few.
444
The Baroque art which gave birth, tragically, to the heroism of Judeo-Christianity, became the future seed to be planted into the minds of men who would have channeled their intuitive energies into a higher plane of knowing themselves in relation to nature. Instead the power of these Baroque masters, who, like Prometheus, coddled humanity and gave the power of the transcendent image, as did logos from the bible. Men who could have been seers of spirit, became instead modernized romantics of this psychological imagery of God. Enamored by the mastery of Michelangelo or Gustave Dore, they misconceived their correct interpretation of the heroic spirit itself laid bare and equated it with the concept of God. They mistook the decadence for the genius; captivated by the pagan embroidery and subterfuge. Now they remain stuck in a religious spider’s web, cocooned in a stasis of moral languishment.
445
Places and activities of simplicity, level the terrain for the mind to see everything; the workshop of wisdom.
446
Modern cinema must make a mockery of the imagination of the act, of the theatrical riddle, because it lacks intelligence to comprehend its serious connotations or substance.
447
The natural tendency of the weak is to align themselves with the strong. The tendency of the strong who become weak, is to very meticulously, cleverly and indirectly, do the same.
448
Modern philosophers pursue the goal of dominating their dead predecessors, instead of succeeding them.
449
Envy is the genetic trait of the weak.
450
One should preserve value more than adapt to survival, if only to be able to survive in solitude.
451
Overcoming is not conquering but a tempering into ever stronger density.
452
Institutions have taken the primitive innocuous nature of the weak-minded, wandering in ignorant inconsequential peace and put a magic wand in their hands.
453
The cynic is a social dependent in denial; the satirist is the social sage he envies.
454
Modern progress is the cultural prey adapted trait. Because they cannot conquer, they will run as quickly as they can into the future away from being conquered.
455
Moderns are infatuated with the psychopath archetype, because it symbolizes the captivity of their subjugated egos, savagely bursting through the oppressive confines of everyday drudgery and oversocialization, wild-eyed with their faces spattered with their own blood.


456
Utopian ideologies will always evoke primitivism in the masses, because it demands the highest form of low intelligence and animalism, in order to reach its absolute cessation.
457
An act of stupidity is one who aggrandizes any given source of superiority because they cannot connect any of its antecedents into the whole of a source of understanding; if they could they would at the very least, be calmer.
458
Like mosquitos, idiots are just another one of nature’s evolved nuisances we must live with.
459
Living amongst group ethics is dirty air one is exposed to without choice, while deliberate participation in group ethics is willingly sticking one’s hand in dirt.
460
Solitude is the perceiving of flux.
461
Melancholia is the spouse of the philosopher.
462
There is nothing for two wise men to talk about.
463
True friendship can only be formed by the laws of hierarchy. The two must share superior characteristics and reciprocated elements of inferior ones, with respectful exchange of conflict and authority.

464
The intelligence of fools is to believe experience and age equals wisdom.
465
God for a philosopher is a seductive woman who stands on the other side of a dilapidated bridge. Seeing her from the other side would suffice to reveal what she is. Crossing the bridge is a dangerous perambulation for the sake of greater truth under the spell of intuition.
466
Stupidity reigns supreme because of its inimitable obedience to nature.
467
One is a degenerate, if dignity, honorable duty or nobility have to be taught to them.
468
Academia are the screams, boisterous laughs, contemptuous glances, and the long hot indelible days. Philosophy are the whispers, the dark clouds, the feminine coquettish giggle, and the passing beams of clear sunlight jutting through the overcast.
469
The overcompensation of the inferiority of moderns, lies in their desperate humbleness.
470
Man cultivates better civility isolated from society.
471
Socratic ignorance is worthy only as a tool, not a value, lest one fatally indoctrinate oneself.
472
The romanticizing of nature was the inception of decadence for philosophy.
473
To gauge the strength of one, it is not enough to make note of how little they depend on society, but to what degree their independent prowess is a corollary to it.
474
The challenge of every great man is to overcome himself as a product of his era.
475
The “God conundrum” with the wise is to either objectify God or psychologize it.
476
Struggle is the pressure on man that war assuages. There would be no war if man were not eternally lacking; war is surviving the storms of weakness.
477
There is being vengeful and taking revenge. The former presupposes inferior resentment, the latter, superiorly misguided honor.
478
Those who invest their powers into ruling society are ruled by it.
479
There is the simplicity in awareness that time is the obstacle. To become aware of time is for one’s consciousness to shift to its purpose of conquering reprieve.
480
Know thyself, is pushing back against the exigencies of cosmic representation.

Above Strength and Weakness Empty
PostSubject: Re: Above Strength and Weakness Above Strength and Weakness EmptyMon Jan 13, 2020 6:12 pm

481
Very telling, like using the word “sin”.
482
The modern cultural obsession with prolonging youth, is like a nitwit elderly man trying to woo young girls.
483
What makes a powerful politician is his knack for changing the realities of the masses (impulses) in his favor.
484
A man who hates himself or engages in self-destruction and intelligently understands why, is an odd rarity in nature with some unknown potential.
485
Pedantic intellectualism is a weak spirit in opulent garb.
486
A simpleton explains things while indirectly asking for explication of them from the listener.
487
Wisdom calms the physiology.
488
A drive for recognition is a directing of weakness, not overcoming.
489
One can be attracted to nothingness so profoundly, that he is capable of understanding and illuminating nihilism like no other.

490
Weininger’s maxim: “Man cannot even bear to look into the sun – so weak and immature is he”; exposes the resentment of power, beneath the reigning strength of genius. Oneself in submission to genius. Thus, he offers some remarkable redemption in: “Worth: power = light: fire.”
491
Slavishness of spirit can always be identified as cacophony.
492
The appearances of nature, are still appearances. The human face is the invaluable façade of nature to instruct us how to see past the appearance.
493
A bodily gesture can reveal as much as nakedness.
494
The philosopher’s memory is his haunting ubiquitous mirror.
495
A moment of victory should never be considered victory itself.
496
In modernity, the wise are elephants, trudging through a terrain teeming with the shrewdness of badgers.
497
The warrior’s compassion is that of kindred longing and a steady hand.
498
Let us never look down from our elevated position, but peer; as we bask in the stillness of ordering.

499
There are but few natural activities left for modern man;
defecating and lamenting.
500
The Apollonian and Dionysian balance depends on the threshold of resplendence in the extreme of one to the other; no moderation, only a greater spiritual aggregate of extremity.
501
The Christian’s burden of shame, is his cause of greatness in itself. The greater it is, the less he will speak of God and the more he will relax into superior simplemindedness.
502
The only mirth in chaos comes from a well spent moment in time.
503
Attitude, personality propensities and psychology determine one’s place in their generation and kinship to the new ones. Never age.
504
The civilized savage orients his instincts, while the wise savage harnesses them.
505
Any felt pain of struggle must be conserved as the substance that life gives back to oneself to ascend further and higher. Pangs of pain are razor sharp diamonds.
506
Some can only walk through, but never in.
507
The lowest form of human life: the courageous-acting coward.
508
The Fall was the revolutionized transcendence of Will the weak made into an empire of decadence. It occupied the emptiness within man’s heart, and designated lasting effects of perseverance to succeed in self-hatred; the manifestations of which now have to do with all forms of passive dwelling upon humanity as ideal. It was the psychological seed of eternal guilt, of purpose, now grown into a material destiny that death has no use for.
The looking back to Eden is the Christian gazing into the void of himself, and the modern into the future of himself.
509
The essence of modern victimhood, either racial, gender or national is not to behave or act out as its victims but to take possession of it as their eternal spiritual and social status, to prune it delicately as one would a flower.
510
The genius is between wisdom and joy; the wise between genius and solitude. Aspiration for either is an active unattaining.
511
Courage is the only proper expelling of fear; its object is the idealized overcoming of it.
512
Power in repose is the greatest height.
513
The Heraclitan river meets the Nietzschean lake.



514
Heroism is the cyclical process of an ancient continuum of affirming meaning in emptiness. The heroic struggle are the seasonal changes of the higher existence of the individual.
515
Moderns are the masters of their own servitude.
They are master slaves.
516
Academia is epistemology, and history is the agglomeration of events requiring as much epistemological aptitude as possible to elucidate them. Therefore, the vocation of historian is the only honorable direction the academic can take himself and manage his hoarded intellectual storage banks in a worthy way.
517
The artist’s perceiving of colors is a Godly power confined in a tiny space.
518
The ones who will never become Gods, are the ones who believe power is about rule and dominion.
519
An animal has a more focused destiny than modern man.
520
Man’s life is an enduring sacrifice to the legacy of the universe; woman is the keeper of the sacrifice.
521
The modern’s dependency on relativism and subjectivity is a mental patient finding meaning in his cell.
522
The greatest irredeemable sacrilege of genius was its captivity by the church to canonize the greatness of Christianity.
523
Feminism is the pitiful mythological desperation to fill the emptiness in woman with a meaningful archetypal substance (feminine mystique) which makes her even more of a parody and a lie of nature.
All necessary exaltation of what never warranted it accomplishes two things: exposing and exacerbating its latent weakness and affirming latent strength of the superior.
524
The cultural idealization of sexuality arrests nature.
525
Rebirth is the masculine calling.
526
Modern jobs are the most viral plague ever to befall Man since the Black Death.
527
The pangs of solitude, which speak of the fledgling noble soul, are the avoidances, the incessant vexations, the turning away from most things.
528
The man for whom women are a ‘problem’, have adopted feminism.
529
The asinine nature of academia: knowledge of war.


530
Intuition is the woman in man who is doting; bravado, the one who is emasculating.
531
Superiority is nature’s floral wellspring of which all purpose is derived from. Were it not, the subjugated would not use their inferiority as a strength, prey would not evolve cunning, man would be incapable of self-destruction. All seeks to return to nature.
532
The wise temperament is sailing on the means to the end.
533
Dualism is only useful if it leads to cohesive comprehension.
534
The happy death comes from the sacrificial peace made with loss.
535
Moderns believe that to work is to struggle, and that struggle is an achievement onto itself where no reward or objective is had; this is their enlightenment.
536
When there is no reason left, ideas become mystical saints to save our souls.
537
If one is unable to discern the truth in things, but only the fleeting spirit; that is a start.
538
One can only smile in the face of their enemy for so long before the metronome snaps.
539
The collective spirit is the edge of the crevice man spends his life walking on.
540
The one who spends their time believing everything is a lie, is duped and surmounted by nature endlessly; the strength in wisdom comes from acknowledging what has already been there.
Wisdom is the being of truth.

Above Strength and Weakness Empty
PostSubject: Re: Above Strength and Weakness Above Strength and Weakness EmptyMon Jan 13, 2020 6:13 pm

541
Careful that reason should become an appetite, rather than a faculty.
542
Imagination is a superior hereditary gene that passes over most.
543
Conquest is the survival of oneself in meaning.
544
Observe what ones loves and listen to what one claims to love.
545
The heroic transcendental spirit that Aryan man seeks, he must find in the last remnants of tradition, that of the embattled Knight Templar, who, bereft of spirit, carries the cross of servitude to victory. The place victory once held in his heart, has become subsumed in the heart of humanity and its moral revenge on the relegated Gods who still threaten it with a consuming ancient fire that is too scalding to be close to and too bright to perceive for his sensitive eyes spent in the dim light of feminine virtue.
The hardest part of his spiritual awakening is the phoenix must not be allowed to fly towards the first pole of power it senses. His river breaks through the dam but it must flow to the sea.
546
The focusing of rage is a centering of the spiritual brutality of time.
547
Potential wise men must understand that their potentiality is perennial.
548
Modernity’s cause is the war to end war.
The self-immolation of civilization.
549
Modern man has mythologized his emptiness in order to transcend it into greatness. His wallowing nihilism, is turned into a superior solipsism. His morality is unassailable; without fear, without logic, without possession.
His greatest failure is his greatest victory. His greatest weakness, is his greatest strength. He reflects the abyss. He seeks knowledge in nothingness.
550
Knowledge by collective associations is a pretense of wisdom.
551
The challenge of Riding the Tiger is understanding when to sojourn and replenish.
552
Man leaves his indelible imprint on all he touches;
Woman touches everything.
553
One should rejoice to have enemies!
554
Wild wisdom and calm wisdom. One to learn from and one to keep.
555
We should war with our strengths and make war with our weaknesses. Do not coddle ourselves with humble superiority by opting for conciliation of both, but to break through both with the innate cause of death and fuse them into a star.
556
Weakness is gold waiting to be mined.
557
One should look at the world and think how to merge with it. Conquering is only the primal expenditure of power; all that consists of the will is determined after.
558
The iron can always be struck again.
559
The charlatan says his greatness will never be recognized.
560
Melancholy is the levity of power. The joyless, the depressed, the cynical are searchers of that elusive child called melancholia.
561
We must spend our lives being worthy of dying, whatever path that takes.
562
There is such a thing as pure suffering.
563
Those who glorify strength into an end, were born weak.
564
The modern will say something idiotic like, “the truth is eternal”.
565
All modern man has to do now is adopt and he becomes. He openly suffers for it because suffering is a pure source of being he can use to make his masquerade noble and superior.
566
When man rejects religion, he embraces politics.
567
“God is dead” means “God is reinvented”.
568
The shallowness of moderns serves a great purpose; one only need to observe the nature of one of them to understand the whole of an era.
569
Christ embodied the divinity in man; modernity succeeded it in humanity as divine. Individualism is modern Christianity and every modern appoints himself the new messiah.
570
If the academic institutions taught understanding instead of knowledge, eruptions of anarchy would be commonplace.
571
Compassion is the ebullience of respect. Those who earn it bear the mark of the Hero.
572
Woman turns to God once the Godhood of man runs its course. All women have their spirit of Wagner’s Kundry, the one who is accursed with penance as an eternal endeavor toward religious absolution. God, the unknowable, the unseen absolute, the eternal mystery, holds enough depth to fill the bottomless void within woman that mortal man cannot give her. The feminine longs for the eternal; the ideal of man temporarily suffices to satisfy her cravings for the divine—to be filled completely—until his limitations are evanescent by his humanity. The monotheistic deity, Him the Supreme, offers the masculine finality to the suffering of her longing for it, to give herself over in submission to the absolute, to be absolved of her weakness.
573
There is greater sickness and danger in quiet self-hating weakness, than bellicose vindictiveness.
574
Michelangelo’s pieta is the essence of the Christian soul. Man living in an illusion of his own power, subjugated by the providence of God; to ultimately return to the source of his slavishness, the inhibiting maternal matriarch, the feminine bosom of conquered masculine slumber beneath a quiet power.
575
Only man has the ability to be conscious of hedonistic self-destruction; the final excursion of principle before his nihilistic plunge.
576
Nature’s weaknesses are roaring rivers, Man’s are stones.
577
The inferiority of genius is its deliverance in language.
578
There are those who express and those who think; primal need and spiritual satiety.
579
Reward gained without struggle is a brain without a mind.

580
Moderns appropriate their identities. The greatest hope they have is to acquire a resemblance of themselves.
581
Patriotism is a euphemism for democracy.
582
Rights will always be demanded because they don’t exist. Promises in nothingness are cultural hypochondria.
583
Liberals will assent to any inequal notion, as long as it does not interfere with feelings of equality.

The vulgar mind will always extrapolate from any given theory, only its strong points.

586
Man is forever only calmed.

What makes moderns a people of prey are their believed fraternity with the animal kingdom.
588
The pagan ascetic is in peaceful relationship with nature. For the Christian ascetic nature is a flagellating chastiser.

589
Sick obsession is the healthy way moderns pursue their goals.
590
The weak mind will attach itself to ideas hoping to receive some semblance of truth they cannot fathom; because they cannot fathom it, they are reprieved from themselves.
591
Types of strivers: mountain climbers, desert walkers and forest dwellers. The first lusts for superior strength, the second for superior wisdom, the third for superior spirit.
592
The decadent man speaks only in decoration.
593
Moderns’ only association with wisdom is to be stimulated by it.
594
Reticent suffering is supreme being. The cold must be endured quietly, because it has no need for tears; when those tears can be collected into a lake. To suffer in harmony, in repose, in burning density. The noble heart burns. Those who cry out, wish for answers that are non-existent.

601
Attributing moral transgression to the unforgiveness of death, is the height of nihilism.

607
The warrior, the hero, the genius, the artist, the philosopher, must, above all, be preservers of the rawness of what builds castes, hierarchies and greatness; but never its rulers, never its loyalists. Their embodiment of spirit cannot interact. The ones who succeed culture, the great men, can know only of this spirit, and with strength and weakness, pass it on.

Most feel that the more they prepare to know something, the more knowledge they have of it.
609
Walk the greatest distance out into seclusion and you will never escape yourself, nor achieve solitude.
The wanderer does not search.

Above Strength and Weakness Empty
PostSubject: Re: Above Strength and Weakness Above Strength and Weakness EmptyMon Jan 13, 2020 6:16 pm

611
Nature is corrupted when one believes it to be all beautiful.
612
Art becomes mediocre when a message is attached to it.



613
The inferior man would be demeaned if we were to raise him to a superior as the superior man would be had he sunk to an inferior level. Nature affixes so that we may appreciate purely.
614
The ‘cultured man’ is the modern playing dress up with intelligence.
615
Strength without direction is the power of wisdom without knowledge.
616
One should look upon the beast that will slaughter them as a deadly brother.
617
The modern wishes to salvage his primitive superstitions in rational faith.
618
Spirituality is the wisdom of one’s past.
619
Truth is a ubiquitous pressure from the world weighing down on perspectives until they push back or break.
620
The idiot has one power, to ideologically phase himself out.
621
No matter how impractical, maladaptive, or repercussive, Spartan exclusiveness of wisdom, honor and dignity, is the only sacrificial practicality to human greatness that I can fathom.

622
The most inferior man is one who proclaims the highest superiority by ruling the weak.
623
The social man is the possessed man.
624
Thinking is separate from awareness.
625
The modern man has ordained himself the creator of his destiny through ideas, but never its achiever, never its possessor.
626
One can never attain superiority by investing it.
627
Perhaps this man of greatness exists. We should not occupy ourselves with concern of his whereabouts.
628
When conflict is suppressed, only sickness and disease can simmer beneath its sealed surface until it erupts and destroys.
629
The strong say nothing.
630
The aware weak man lives on proof.
631
The wise should have sense enough never to speak for others or himself.
632
The lowly do not know why they suffer so they compound it in the suffering of pleasure. Pain requires only resistance; pleasure, an exacerbation of ascending. For those who endure enough pleasure will endure only the torment of dying but not the respite of death.
633
Those who know how to absorb strength, have mastered the act of accepting.
634
God is always recognized for its power because it traverses the world to include all forms of life. The weak become powerful only when recognized. The cosmopolitanism of God is mistaken for its spiritual wandering(prowess); whereas, the one who remains only in one place has learned enough about it to wander in wealth and power; the brimming soul.
635
Nature symbolizes nothing, but only pressures one to become.
636
Nietzsche’s quintessential problem: saying ‘yes’ is stagnate. One can acknowledge existence into absurdity.
Harnessing it into becoming is roaring. Let us roar.
637
Genius must be organic, never mental.
638
Spurious wisdom can charm our understanding but leave it wanting.
639
Fear is the mother of survival, necessity of invention, pretension of society.
640
The interiority of oneself is the representation of its eternality.
641
Freedom is only a nostalgia.
642
What is out of reach is not the unattainable or mystical, but the path to it.
643
The need to overcome the flux of existence is the inferior will, asserting itself to its highest end.
644
Shame can cull man’s nobility into extinction.
645
Masters used to enslave men with chains, now they do it with ideas of freedom.
646
Weak men talk about what they have.
647
Appreciating, recognizing or glorifying what is inherent, makes it nothing more than its basic nature.
648
The intractable challenge for man is knowing how to surrender to his own domain.
649
The weak boast of the strength of surviving because they multiply the effect of their weakness to insure its survival. They cling to the lowest degree because they cannot ascend any further, and find glory in animal regression; the primitive evasion of the predator is their mighty trademark.
The strong crescendos; the weak subsists.
650
What becomes impossible for nature, one should take the reins.
651
Modern man is a tourist of wisdom.
652
Cowards hide behind facts as they do bushes.
653
Let us laugh only so hard.
654
A philosophy of nature might just be the lessor of all evils.
655
Reason is only a shroud.
656
The wise do not sing, dance or make merry and that is right and necessary dear fools.
657
The disorder of the modern thinker is his objectivity is his conscience; he finds salvation in academia.
658
The noble man is an aberration of nature, a pariah of Man, a thunderclap.

659
The wind challenges: how long before you cast off your coat?
660
Strength in weakness comes from the force of finitude.
661
Great thinkers are inspiring without being influential.
662
Philosophers must learn to make peace with pessimism.
663
Modernity is a barrage of subtle indignities that toxify the soul.
664
Strength is an expulsion of the kindled energies of weakness. Excess must be released for the mass of power to expand. Loss is fortitude, conservation is decay.
665
Figuring out how to know, is probably more paramount then why.
666
The sign of a decadent is one who compares his thinking.
667
Be careful that wisdom should lead you astray.
668
Searchers of strength are better off than searchers of truth.


669
The warlike soul should aspire to wage war. If he should remain only warlike, he becomes a philosopher. If he should make war, he attains wisdom.
670
Individual strength is merely confidence in oneself by the reassurances of a placating society. How does one gain strength of oneself without the social proxy? By knowing what silence is.

Above Strength and Weakness Empty
PostSubject: Re: Above Strength and Weakness Above Strength and Weakness EmptyMon Jan 13, 2020 6:16 pm

671
War with others, is the need to return to nature. War with nature is the need to return to ignorance.
672
Authority is the cheap version of strength most men find a shortcut to.
673
The self-destruction of truth is its idealization.
674
Feeling out of place in one’s time, is a superior spiritual gene with unrealized potential.
675
The noble warrior and the philosopher. Two repelling magnets that sometimes touch.
676
Most want faith in something, but never to have faith as to have honor.
677
How much ones lacks, lies in how much one wants.

678
We must peer into what is outside ourselves more than what is in ourselves, age brings on blindness sooner than later.
679
Why seek out others of wisdom? Comfort? Companionship? Reassurance? Even if I trekked the farthest region and came across the wisest of men, it would only be an occurrence of nature, a happenstance. Wisdom has no telos. Lingering in the presence of even this great wise man would be exhausting, knowing it cannot last, knowing that his presence is indirectly taxing me to reciprocate. The interaction of wise men should only be that of colliding and separating.
680
Melancholy, the weariness of existence, should not be looked upon as anything more than a condition of a higher consciousness needing respite. It becomes a problem for philosophers when they attribute use-value to that respite.
681
Preoccupying oneself with the ‘methods of rational argument’, means that one has spent too much time around simpletons, and too much time protected from nature.
682
To fall into a ‘category’, means you have been drawn to the safety net of society.
683
Modern men wish to leave their mark by desperately throwing a monkey wrench into the circle of ideas and theories. They make of knowledge only an intriguing peccadillo!
684
Rationalism was the solution to the loss of reason. Moreover, deliverance from it.

685
How much strength would you have to exert to land one blow? One can expend themselves without any knowledge of how it happened.
686
The crumbled ruins of a past can rescue destiny when laid before the right pair of eyes.
687
Why would one, alone, charge the onslaught of a hundred men against all chance of victory? Because death laughs at you, and one should take offense at being laughed at.
688
Modern society is the hideous stare of Medusa, one should avoid looking straight at it to avoid being paralyzed by its ugliness.
689
Let the women weep, and the men fight, and the storms rage. Perhaps then flowers may grow.
690
The sorry state of a man is when even in death he places himself on a pedestal.
691
The woman is always safe, because she always feels eyes upon her.
692
One who suffers and struggles having no idea why, is a terminally ill inevitable death.


693
If you do not wish to slay with your sword, then keep it sheathed, even forever, unless it be wasted on asinine logical reservations.
694
Ideas are stones that should be thrown by the strongest men.
695
It is enough to endure oneself; enduring others is a state of dying.
696
We can mock those weaker, but they reside everywhere in our wake. The female is abundant and ubiquitous for a very good reason; to be overcome.
697
The joy of wisdom is only a palate’s satisfaction that should not become an indulgence.
698
To “love” nature is to offer one’s throat to the jaws of a tiger.
699
The sensation of time, is the only sensation worthy of nurturing.
700
Religion is that maternal bosom man enjoys feeling is close by when weakness becomes too great.
701
You desire to be liberated from fear, from want, from value, from the pain in a body spent in pleasure, in oblivion or triumph, in sickness, in health? There is none to be had, not even from death, not from the stars or the consuming waves of energy in the universe, or the suffering of change. If anything in this world cared about you, you would be a contradiction, the most senseless being to ever have existed!
702
The man who finds peace in chaos is more dangerous than one who finds submission in order.
703
We are either the poets or the subjects of nature.
704
The searcher is aimless, the wanderer is oriented.
One who needs; one who overcomes.
705
Make the mind an arrow, the Will a sword.
706
The intellect has no power or worth, without connection to destiny.
707
The ideologue is one who must theorize his spirit into existence. Conceptual blindness is his sharpest vision.
708
One should realize where reason ends and nature begins and return the power to receive it back revitalized.
709
How masterful we could be if we perfected our yearning!


710
Nature is the dominion for us to dominate. Those who idle in woe, waiting for nature to claim their lives, submit to its dominion. Let those of power merge with it.
711
For new seeds to be planted, the land must be cleansed, tilled and summoned.
712
Seeking out the raven is a pursuit of foolishness.
713
The deft silence of the mountain echoes nothing. The wish for the echo is the wish for a falling boulder.
714
Look up to Irminsul and one will glimpse the knowledge of themselves. Turn this glimpse into your weapon of choice.
715
To be captivated by the vastness of a land, some will mistake for divine inspiration, when it is the overstimulation of reason finding an alleviation in faith. That one is captivated at all is a potentiality of power.
716
What man can truly say he understands the silence of the desert?
717
The storm cares nothing of your life, and that is the greatest gift to the sanctity of oneself.


718
The voice of the spirit whispers to reason, and reason should devote itself to hearing it as clearly as possible.
719
One shouldn’t stand atop the hill until their eyes have adjusted to sight. Vertigo is an inability to withstand nature.
720
There is no transcending nature, but only transcending one’s representation of it.
721
There are those who mount the summit and look back and those who look forward and press on. Both actions must be done; to remember and then preserve, honor.
722
Only those who know how to laugh, once the trek into the deepest forest has taken everything from them, has crossed paths with Odin.
723
One can be sedentary, like the boulder, but the boulder is far more powerful in its immobility.
724
Cybele hands us the tools to become Gods, and we must surpass her feminine wiles to use them to ascend to power.
725
Man should strive to perfect himself in the gaps of nature.
726
Merge destiny with instinct.

727
Honor and virtue are the rods of God-like power hidden from reason and logic.
728
The distance into the desert can be a mirage or a mirror.
729
The universe manifests truth, the mind suppresses it.
730
Odin’s sacrifice: Peer into the distance with a sight severed from its world, to one without sight.
731
One has no wisdom without the awareness that it is connected to nature’s indifference.
732
The world is loud enough, no words need to be spoken.
733
Accepting truth is planting its seed; believing it, is bringing it to flourishment.
734
How long did it take you to become aware that you were thinking?
735
It is better for those who have no truth to redeem themselves with faith in it.
736
Greatness identifies with no one.

737
Morality is the way back to divine illusions.
738
Most only understand death and not how to be reborn.
739
If you should be starving for a piece of bread, take it with an iron grip.
740
The strongest thoughts are those that echo and vanish. The weakest, those that linger and repeat.

Above Strength and Weakness Empty
PostSubject: Re: Above Strength and Weakness Above Strength and Weakness EmptyMon Jan 13, 2020 6:19 pm

741
For one to labor and suffer all their life only to realize that “humanity” is the highest ideal, has made peace with their inferiority.
742
We should, as philosophers, visit the grotto of Venus, if only to escape it and sharpen our understanding of suffering. The spirit of Tannhauser’s pilgrimage without the deterioration of shame.
743
The rapture of one moment of idealism can encourage one to construct themselves as the ideal. Such is the power of individual purpose in its death throes.
744
Intellectualism is the feminization of philosophy.
745
Superiority is a plunge of self-awareness risking the presence of the creative spirit.

746
The feminine is forever what was/is.
The masculine is forever what became/becomes.
747
The sun reveals the spirit of truth beneath the guise of power, while the moon contrasts its finer details beneath the guise of sensuality.
748
The great tragicomedy of life is the innate uselessness of death.
749
Should one find themselves one day, adorning their egos with accolades and accomplishments aplenty, they have found their kinship among beasts.
750
The goal of wisdom must be to wither itself down to a denser, more resilient size of those few ideas, thoughts and beliefs that truly matter.
751
To speak of the modern spirit is only to do so, to avoid soiling oneself in their clean stride.
752
A smile in solitude, is a laugh in death.
753
Walk along a path of flowers and know that the beauty seen should not be made known to anyone.


754
Ideas incite feelings of power, worth, privilege and uniqueness. They are the only balm that soothes our abstracting and primitiveness. The ascension to power and truth is to overcome this illusion.
755
Place an intelligent man at an elitist social dinner table and he becomes a pretentious pedant. Place him in a rickety old shack in a secluded forest and he becomes a wise conqueror.
756
Calmness of self is the path taken to the happy death.
757
The only superstition which arises from wisdom is the belief in ‘divine purity of truth’. This insidious succor of redemption plaguing even the wisest men.
758
Erupting in flames of glory would be the man who absorbed the feminine in him by purging all guilt from himself.
759
Before one conquers, he must explore if he has already been conquered.
760
Man’s power becomes corrupted when he becomes aware of it. It is undermined when it is validated. It is lost when it is idealized.
761
Only the highest minds can make sense of darkness.


762
If there exists any tolerance or good nature toward suffering, it is by purposefully inflicting it upon oneself by conquering enemies.
763
The post-modern attack on truth is its immortal Judeo-Christian spirit ensuring that all reality be made divine and untouchable by the use of grandiose doubting. Thus, in order to bury and relegate any degree of strength beneath idealistic bedazzlement and secure weakness and cultural inferiority forever in its place.
764
What thoughts would a loquacious person have without a tongue? Solitude is a cruel father.
765
Honor is water for the spirit. One simply needs it; never to question it.
766
Idleness, that odd potential of sorts, must be reserved only for the initiated; as a sword on the hip of a soldier.
767
The pursuit of truth, the natural drive of philosophy, can be understood as the mindful act of courage. For all longing and pursuits toward an ideal of truth is merely the fervor of Will which drives the intellect as appetite drives the need for sustenance. There is no other comprehensible idea that can be had other than that the courage to handle the emptiness of the nature of this pursuit, is the only organically feasible way to attain it in any real form; the only contented way, that is, by focused alacrity alone.
Just as fear encourages the overcoming of it through survival, courage supports the intellectual impetus to act with fortitude against the odds of nothingness or the highest meaning of something. Ultimately, courage is all one has to attain truth, to wade through the opaque dimness, the unknowability of nature. We must, however, with some objective reserve, not give total credence to the inexplicable other than to suspend our judgment in it. We cannot give too much credence to objectivity either, as it will lead to myopic intellectual exclusivity. To take a plunge of ascertaining what is, should be the only methodology we should settle upon, if we must for the sake of our knowledge and theories.
Philosophy still, has a problem with faith. That this pursuit should end, not with God, but with a confounded agnostic faith in God, is a spiritual inferiority that has not been overcome by the thinker doing the philosophizing. That a courageous disposition of intellectual versatility should ineluctably come to the relativistic conclusion of the shadow of human idealism is the decadence of genius. To climb a mountain, one must first enact not the first step of the climb but of the temperamental commitment to risk falling. This courageousness of thought is the act of holding fast to the pursuit of truth so that some semblance of it can be achieved if not for any possibility than by the discipline of reasoning alone, to endure. To stake our victory on an absolute end or means will leave us in a state of religious faith from one pole to the other. Thus, courage is the locomotion which propels us to the truth. It is the only means which we can rely on that grants us the power to succeed in the battle for ourselves.
However, some form of faith, if one will catch on, is always to blame in this pursuit. It becomes the resting place when thought becomes too challenging or reaches spaces of reasoning too great for us to handle at the moment we reach them. What is bewildering and agonizing is this stagnation of faith, has nothing to do with God but of the absolution of nature as godly. That the chaos and order of nature condemns the Will in submission before it, and this is where the muscular failure of thought occurs in its exertion for those with weak minds, or undeveloped minds, or minds not exposed to the war of disappointment and internal tragedy of oneself. For, one cannot even begin this approach to truth without seeing or intuiting melancholia of existence that resides inside them as unfulfilled beings who want to be fulfilled.
The types of faith have always to do with a retraction into mysticism or suspension of thought itself rather than logic or reason. The thinker plagued with this germ being spoken of, will, for instance, render himself “inadequate” to look further or deeper or beyond what he knows. He balances himself with latent Christian asceticism, as a backdrop for his fear to investigate or lack of insight. He resorts to modern humbleness to avail this qualm, sheepishly and subtly as to where it goes unnoticed by the less observant and counts for some act of ethical dignity. He reaches the summit only to conclude that because he cannot see the decent of the path down, he must turn back, but with a feeling of humble wisdom which he attained from the ascent. To this, he is satisfied. An absurd ‘humble’ satisfaction; a strength cultivating weakness! If he had the courage to descend into the depth of the mountain how much he would have learned about what lay beyond his own methodology. He settles for being ensnared and held captive by the thought process.
768
True dignity can only be reached by rejoicing in nature’s cruelty.
769
There is exceedingly more truth in nature than the furthest truth in philosophy.
770
The mind recalls what matters immediately to truth, regardless of the quality of what was cast aside. It is these empirical sensualities that are the keys to understanding the being of oneself.
771
A culture that has learned to belittle or deny death, is one that has reached the death throes of its spiritual impoverishment and decay.
772
There are thoughts that must be understood, words to be learned, ideas to be built upon, but the songs and melodies are almost never grasped.


773
Power of genius is this perplexity of nature asserting itself through an organic medium like any other species. It finds its way through a worthy agent which has the tolerance of its energies and forces; which can contain them and become them. Any great man should well despise the worship of himself, as this will conserve his strength. Nature is frightening, genius is raw nature.

774
Suffering is the subjugating cost of the war of existence and the threshold of it; it is its spoil. Suffering for suffering’s sake is the physical sickness of nihilism.

775
The one power in humility is an alliance with nature.

776
Those who hate themselves in silence, love themselves in noise.

777
There can never be too great fullness of spirit other than the fear or distress of it reaching a conquering crescendo of fruition.

778
The more ideas one is preoccupied with, the greater the absence of what those ideas symbolize in them. The most earnest advocates for peace, have none in themselves, and the deepest haters of peace wish to expel the truth of what it revealed to them about themselves.
779
The immortal inspiration of Jesus Christ, is the symbolism of the commitment to blindly, but with an ironic noble reserve, take one’s actions to their absolute end into self-destruction. A principled self-destruction redeems everyone from existence and empowers one to their complete abolition of self. Jesus became everything, and nothing; he occupied everywhere and nowhere. Thus, do others find in him, their private kingdoms of absolved oblivion.

780
The ease to which one can obtain riches, possessions, social merit, or relationships, pales in comparison to how difficult it is to be alone in quietude given that everything else requires the sacrifice of that precious solace.

781
Only war and conflict can be the great emancipators of human delusions. Only in war will ever truly be determined what is and is not, what is truth and what is a lie, what is strong and what is weak, what is brave and what is cowardly, what lives and what dies.
782
An ability to peer into the essence of a thing, is the mind perceiving its own mortality, its own death. It is hard to believe that one could have the melancholia of truth, without connection to its spiritual roots of dying, without a conscious primal foundation. Why does the noble warrior not seek out war, but consume it in flames when he encounters it? There is no need to search for what is there, unless the intent is to incur disaster upon oneself. One does not wait for it either, as that is mere passive naïveté. Knowing it is there, is a reserve of strength, an aggregate of energy that builds toward the proper exertion of power, and its entropic receding, its return back to the dying state.
There is no seeing what truth is, without accepting its origin in death. Truth is this accumulation of energies needed to order life that must be dispersed, inevitably, when it reaches its apex. Death is the ultimate truth. To have truth, is to be plagued with the melancholia of knowing the nature of its purpose. Death reveals what becomes and what is, nakedly, without intrusion of illusions. Truth is the only manifestation of the inevitability of mortality one partakes in throughout life, as it is the only connection to what truly matters and the one tool to uncover death in our wake as we near our dying day. One truth, exposes another, and reveals another part of the process of dying and if one is wise enough, of their own death itself.

Hence the Socratic axiom: philosophy is the study of death.

783
The wise man remains ever a tamed shrew of impartiality; until his principles unleash his barbarity so as to keep the order.

784
Reason in courage is a sophisticated ignobility.

785
There is no natural law, no natural philosophy, no natural science, there is only nature and us.
786
Any man of real intelligence, will detest the verisimilitude of intelligence.

787
Pain helps us to remember ourselves and stems the tide of need, because it leaves an indelible imprint of spiritual fortification, while pleasure spins the memory around until all it has experienced is lost, leaving only an empty longing for what was faintly there.
788
Man must wage war on himself to know himself.

789
A true devotee of truth, never preaches truth. A charlatan loves to teach and preach truth, but never speak it.


790
The success of the miserly soul, of the political king, comes from the veracity of self-delusion.
791
A great man has no dream of being great.

792
Beauty is tragic because it illuminates our mortality; It is beautiful because it shrouds us from death.
793
Modernity forces the noble spirit into endless predicaments of relegating himself to the level of the reprobate in order to survive among it, until he realizes that to preserve himself, he must enact the superiority of the alienation of indifference.

794
A great tragedy is a wise man being more foolish than he knows, and a fool, being wiser than he understands. The spiritual disability of both comes from their attempts to be what they are not.
795
The culture of nihilism survives if only from the throng of inane voices uttering inane things, where by freak chance, something of marginal relevance is heard and redeems the rest of the maddening lunacy to than become even stronger.

796
Most minds fear truth, but are enamored with its ideal.

797
The exertion of power must leave behind a reserve of force. One should never believe they have conquered, until the silence tells them.



798
There is a vital difference of intellectual integrity between one admiring a great thinker, and one considering them omniscient.

799
A step to wisdom: Knowing, without rumination, what should be destroyed and what should be preserved.
800
The academic institutions are good solely for the purpose of producing the gifted rare few who will overcome its indoctrination and illusions.

Above Strength and Weakness Empty
PostSubject: Re: Above Strength and Weakness Above Strength and Weakness EmptyMon Jan 13, 2020 6:21 pm

801
Man lusts after nature because it is the closest to immortality that he knows of.

802
For every strong and superior being, there is a greater one. One who perishes, perishes again. One who conquers, conquers again.

803
Most wise men see light everywhere; few are its source.

804
Much of men’s lives are oriented by the need to be forced into action or inspired into creativity. Everything else is a triviality.

805
There are nuances and patterns and degrees which lead to truth, weak minds want only the truth.
806
Pleasure is not a reprieve from pain, but its planted seed.

807
A natural distaste for language is a healthy trait of lucidity.

808
It is simple and entertaining to beguile the masses, and undignified.

809
The birth of the idea of evil was the redemption of the weak to become strong while making all that was ever strong a negative with no need for explication. The idea of “good”, its interchangeable justification, ingrained it into the psychology of Man. To view anything as evil, is a temperament of cowardice. Nature, what exposes us to pain and struggle, became evil so that the “Good” may be made into an absolute. If man couldn’t have one absolute, he settled for another.

810
One should shy away from language, as from a steep ledge.
811
Comprehending the complex details of a simple whole would only serve to heighten the acumen of it; creating complications for a simple whole is to conceptualize one’s own naïveté of it.
812
Among a throng of screeching animals, one in particular is recognized as the loudest. This is the politician.
813
Nature loves to hide, as Heraclitus says; therefore, it follows that our patience depends on how she presents herself to us.


814
When one observes things in their own being, it will be quite clear that there is nothing to opine about.
815
The men who speak the less, either know too much, or are content to accept what they do not know.
816
Learning can be like a gluttonous belly; overconsuming, no absorption.
817
The mannerism of a fool is to rashly believe he understands what is obvious.
818
To see things clearly, one has to patiently wait until the tide of urges and truth recedes.
819
Insights into nature are sensations of dying; the joyous pang of recollection and its forlorn throb of loss.
820
Happiness is the rejoice of suffering.
821
War is nature’s equilibrium.
822
The greatest power atrophies without the fitness of death.


823
The laws of man are inferior to the laws of nature and the laws of God are Man’s greatest inferior laws.
824
Ruling requires a pronounced whimsical naivete to be forceful; Hence no philosopher king is possible.
825
How the wise err: to choose one strength over all others. How the wise survive in a world of decadence: to choose one strength over all others.
826
The wise perish in a fever pitch, while the foolish subsist and decay.
827
Great men have rage, inferior have bitterness.
828
Fate are occurrences of nature corresponding with human thoughts as natural as a bolt of lightning striking earth.
829
We would do better to make a pact with nature as enemies.
830
Romanticizing nature is a tricky art form; the challenge of endearing the spectacle of a tiger hunting without one being torn to pieces.
831
A warrior in peace longs for war, a philosopher in peace longs for death.

832
Forms of weakness: Strength through repetition.
Strength through momentum.
Strength through exhaustion.
Forms of strength: Strength through harmony.
Strength through failure.
Strength through focus/power.
833
Humoring people, is an incurable chronic ailment.
834
Beauty’s cruelty lies not in provoking envy, but in the hardship of the duty to ascend in oneself.
835
A weak mind sees only the use of something.
836
Idealism is the domain of the untested mind seeing all obstacles and overcoming none.
837
If the modern spirit were to commit to itself, it would self-destruct. It survives by changing itself with its environment as a chameleon.
838
The engagement with objectivity is the subjective ordering process.


839
Poetry is the passion of reason. Therefore, those who create it, honor patterns of lucidity and soundness, as a well sculpted statue follows laws of geometrical symmetry while being enchanting. Those who aggrandize or obfuscate poetry, are the same ones who speak vaguely but quickly so as to impress, and then disillusion.
840
There is the tree which grows rapidly, jutting forth into the sky until it topples over upon its own senseless power. Then there is the tree which grow slowly, expanding outward as well as upward and reaches ever so slightly higher than the other over much toil and time. Such is being and becoming.
841
Most anxieties and frustrations stem from the suppression of natural functions of Will.
842
Inspiration is a catalyst of either creation or destruction, or self-destruction.
843
It is reviling for most men to accept themselves as pawns of society, when they were born pawns of nature.
844
The psychology is subject to the Will if only by the narrowest of margins; therein lies flame and fire.
845
Oversocialization is the conversion of instincts into practical methodologies. Modernization is the purging of them.

846
Genius should avoid becoming revolutionary, lest it become absorbed into mediocrity.
847
A blind fit of fury would teach one more about themselves than a lifetime of education.
848
The cynic is the noble man accepting modernity. Hateful passion, is the noble man rejecting it.
849
The difference between the wise man and the shepherd is one has yet to become the other.
850
Most fear silence, because its business is in death and truth.
851
One part of man’s life is spent acquiring wisdom, the other part is spent being worthy of it.
852
The academic is a pedant and insufferable, not because of his superciliousness, but because he makes the inane meaningful.
853
In an age of nobility, the artists and geniuses are few but the culture rich. In an age of decadence, the artists and geniuses are ubiquitous, but the culture degenerate.


854
Animals succeed survival, idiots succeed stupidity, degenerates succeed hedonism, the strong succeed strength, the wise succeed spirit; evolution is uncomplicated.
855
Beauty is that old friend of the noble soul who crosses paths with him in the worst of times.
856
It is mistaken to believe that knowledge has a nature of universalism, when to know, is to narrow a pathway further down to a single direction of where we will inexorably meet our end.
857
The pusillanimous repugnance of modernity is ultimately rooted in profound pettiness.
858
Nature is a stream of patterns contained by forces of truth.
859
Be wary of the one who speaks when he says he prefers to be alone.
860
Will and individuality are incompatible.

PostSubject: Re: Above Strength and Weakness Above Strength and Weakness EmptyMon Jan 13, 2020 6:22 pm

861
The strong soul rejoices, never worships.
862
The philosopher divines what is and was already present, beautiful and sacred; he simply ascribes to it the word ‘truth’.

863
There is the particularly awful burden of being too aware of others.
864
Solitude offers the one solace of importance to any virtuous constitution. It returns the soul to a place of natural laws and associations of intrinsic earthly value, which are the laws and beliefs of oneself.
865
The pure soul is suited to mythology because of its tentative power to become, like the Ideal, broken and unattainable. Nobody wants to truly believe in the ideal, just as they do not wish to truly become like the ‘pure soul’. The need of the ideal itself, grants enough correlation to what they know is beyond them, and therefore grants them their illusions and self-importance.
866
Genius sometimes causes madness, sometimes causes death, because it is a rogue who gives its allegiance to no one. It is a force which repels, resists, eludes and destroys; all in the name of creation, of a quake of land, of a blinding flicker of fire and light.
867
The modern mind’s sickness is to discard all forms of laws which uphold existence itself. Their crude minds cannot fathom order in any human sense.
868
All creating is not creation, but posterity; the building, expanding and succeeding upon ancestral foundations.
869
Most live in society never realizing that it is an aberration of the self. Man’s place in it is as fleeting and inherently useless as his concern with it.
870
The genius of Montaigne was that his honesty was so natural and impressive, that philosophy, as if like a generous king, seemed to reward him with profound acumen.
871
The academic believes that ‘knowledge is power’. Power over others, not himself.
872
The inimitability of greatness is to be what is not in nature.
873
The reason courage is so paramount to greatness is that it is the bridge from finitude to infinitude. There is nothing of it, or in it, without the act of venturing.
874
Courtesy, generosity, civility; these are noble pieces of garb that must sometimes be torn off with ferocity.
875
The difference between the madness of the mob of simpletons and the mob of brutes, is the former will scatter in blind confusion, while the latter will tear them apart in blind savagery.
876
The huge able-bodied man who thinks and behaves womanly, is an offshoot of giant domesticated livestock who will find their place in the abattoir.
877
Asceticism is not the denial of energies, but the accumulation of strength.
878
Before modernity, the word “horror” was just a word.
879
The hollow degradation of moderns, is that even their true opinions reveal nothing of themselves.
880
There is a vast difference between society and a shared culture/people or Volk. The community, the ancestral kin collective of an age, has roots in life and being. It has a purpose and belongs to a focused destiny. ‘Society’ is an amorphous sacrilege of the Volk. It deracinates the people and reduces all to a cog of performance to the function of a pulsating aggregate of mindless interaction. The consequence is those who belong to the Volk cannot be blamed for looking upon society as anything but a hunting ground, for their kin, their culture, are nowhere to be found anywhere and thus no altruism to be had.
881
Noble men do not romanticize nobility.
882
The impetus of the artist is to control time.
883
Philosophy, simply put, is a higher form of fundamental logic.
884
Most who are successful, are so in terms of a long arduous life of social trifles and exacerbating relationships.
885
The feminine in us shows us who we are in stark nakedness; the masculine clothes it with endurance and suffering.


886
The true artist must be pagan. For his talents depend on extrapolating from the essence of nature.
887
“Enemy” is a subtle term of respect afforded to those with some degree of power to challenge our own. Those of low and base character should not be our enemies, but only forms of pestilence that simply must be pragmatically wiped out.
888
Let women conquer by manipulating, deceiving, groveling, hiding and subverting; let men conquer by looking their enemy in the eyes and decimating them.
889
The strongest man should understand that there is always something stronger than him.
890
The weak and downtrodden will feel any degree of power or superiority, as long as they are allowed to.
891
I once heard someone speak of the “evolution of aristocracy”.
I laughed.
892
Moderns do not desire the attainment of power; only the feeling of it.
893
It rarely occurs to most thinking men, that the “Good” need not be transmuted into anything at all.

894
There are the men of ideas and the men of action. This is the only natural camaraderie that compliments strong civilization. For if men should lack cognitive strengths, they should refine their might.
895
Nature takes our breath away, because it suffuses energy of conflict and war of its past and that which created it. Traversing a desert or climbing a mountain is walking upon the ruins of its empire.
896
Heroism is the sensible audaciousness and sacrifice for success; not grandiose stupidity for recognition.
897
Political sectarianism subsumes human tribalism by divesting it of its biological basis, and turning it into an ideological grouping of consensus. An artificial tribe of no race, no values or identity, but of an impoverished longing for such things.
898
When war is absent, and words dictate actions, rather than noble initiative, the very soul of man becomes a toss-up of arbitrary opinions of inactions and angst.
899
The highest point of power is to wield it, not become it.
900
Language is the most indispensable and self-destructive tool Man has.
901
The unsavory slavishness of the modern spirit is to afford themselves their one good deed that exempts them from performing any others.
902
One’s loyalties lie somewhere; once uncovered they will be either strong or weak.
903
Love can exude a genius when it is rooted in the depths of a particular graceful soul who knows how to summon it as light and darkness, passion and aggression, rage and honor.
904
Simple minds require the mediocre simplified form of wisdom; which is why they worship man made laws.
905
Childish groveling should not flatter us anymore then the sincerest respect of our enemies.
906
Nature is the one and only true sage. The wisest of men still only speak to us in one mere cavern which nature affords to him. Nature’s movement, energy and flux is the pure spirit of wisdom.
907
Beauty is the harmonious balance of subtle details and this creates the center of light; that shimmering phenomenon of truth that we intuitively know makes all the sense in the world.
908
One cannot oust morality from humanity; only look beyond it.
909
We forget that the purpose of the Hero is to emit his light as bright as possible and then perish. Life is not meant for him, only destiny.
910
Fear of oneself, is the power of, and over oneself.
911
Nature resounds its war drums continuously; the man of virtue, hears this all day every day.
912
Reaching the summit of the mountain does not mean you have conquered it, but have placed yourself further at its mercy.
913
Beware that all that we say should turn into a waking reverie.
914
All actions are degrees of progression toward a pinnacle of purpose.
915
Socializing is indirect nakedness.
916
The art of thinking, its quality and its purpose, must be retained, and can only truly be recognized, in dissociating oneself with their identity.
917
A right and true action sometimes must be taken without reason, without qualms, without suppositions, without regard for life or death or oneself.
918
Deep sympathy is a trait of the ruthless noble heart.


919
The mind is the ‘arrow’, in conceptual stasis where reality makes perfect sense, and where its contradictions are resolved in creative theory, and infinity co-exists with immutability. And sometimes, these arrows find a mark in reality, but largely go unnoticed by the untrained or ungifted eye. Conversely, the mind rarely finds its mark, to corroborate the travels/flight of its perceiving, and this constant effort creates more arrows, needing their perfect mark, their perfect resolution of truth, which become not an absolute truth, but a fluctuation of attaining. But the truth is there, the aim of philosophy is to sift it out through paradoxical rumination, as a scientist does to understand nature through empirical trial and error.
920
Weakness can become strength, but failure cannot become victory.
921
Great men become ashes, like all men; but ashes never meant anything to begin with.
922
The concept of “nothingness”, should be a passing dalliance in our path which we regard and then move past.
923
Dependencies are worse than weaknesses. Quixotries, worse than strengths.
924
The noble soul, living in an ignoble world, internalizes his discontent which becomes a passively wise solitude ever churning with the heat of power and destiny.
925
Strength of spirit means nothing without strength.
926
Academics can only ever be onlookers of what nature conceals from them and surmise what it is, using their pragmatically acquired sources of knowledge and wisdom. Ultimately, they will either become nihilists or God fearing souls, once they realize they lack the ability to see past what they know. They will fill their lacking, their weakness with an end point, God, the Singularity, AI, etc. They think in terms of methodologies, coping strategies, survivalism, techniques, that must act as figures in an equation leading to a solution. It is either God or the modern psychosis of freedom in nothingness.
927
Man’s success over the intellectual, manifests as aggressive precision. To exert the masculine active force over what is passive, subtle, is to control and order its deficiencies, it’s weaknesses.
928
For the modern, reason is an island he is hopelessly marooned on.
929
Force is the unspoken longing among the intellectual and the civilized.
930
It is in the soul who sees the futility of conquering who conquers the most inside himself.

Above Strength and Weakness Empty
PostSubject: Re: Above Strength and Weakness Above Strength and Weakness EmptyMon Jan 13, 2020 6:23 pm

931
Solitary wisdom is what draws the most threats, for it must remain immovable to extend its roots deeper into the world; attracting and resisting the greatest hardships, failings and destruction.
932
The extremities of the female are that she resents her sexuality absolutely in slavish religious contrition, or gallivant promiscuity.
933
There is no other greater destiny the modern individual aspires to, than to have someone take notice of him.
934
Grace can be any poor man’s salvation.
935
Leisure exposes one’s natural drives.
936
Wisdom emanates; no one source of it exists.
937
Pitting enemies against enemies comes nowhere near the power of destruction, world around, of pitting brother against brother.
938
Despite weaknesses, misgivings or incredulity, the instinct of being on the right side of history, keeps one aligned with a natural course of life.
939
Intellectualism and politics are the inversions of thinking and philosophy; they came about as the survivalist reaction to bring hierarchy to mediocrity.
940
The inferior exists, so the superior will remain timeless.
941
The movement and stillness in the flower, is the ebb and flow of a merciless ocean.
942
The grotesque is what over-emphasizes.
943
The truth always shines the brightest and goes unnoticed in the simplest and most familiar phenomenon of nature.
944
The use of power and force is enthralling, until it turns itself upon you.
945
One who realizes that ideas are patterns, not absolutes, are the most in tune with nature.
946
We do not live to be admired.
947
The malady many suffer from is seeking “The Good”, like sustenance to satiate appetite.
948
A remedy to most of our ills, is to revert our emotions back to instincts.
949
Two forms of foolishness: believing one answer resolves everything.
Believing one factor of wisdom resolves everything.
950
The idiot is oblivious to his acts of idiocy; shallow superiority is his self-awareness.
951
A Christian philosopher is an eccentricity of the world; a speaker of truths, and untruths and half-truths.
952
Modernity is the culture of self-deception. When reason has been deified to disprove all beliefs, it begins to disprove one’s existence and psyche. When every whim of human imagination has been deracinated from creativity, when every thought and idea is decreed as a ‘phantom’, one begins to live only as a masquerade; imprisoned in an endless canard of being and not being.
953
Even the noble man must understand that his values and principles do not concern nature.
954
Mediocre minds are unable to look beyond the immediate realm of their own existence. Modern art began the tradition of relegating oneself to the confines of one’s surroundings of drudgery and the monotony of daily life as their only spiritual tether to the world and nature. The great minds, looked to mythology, to higher perspectives, to the heroic, to transcendence; to a becoming of themselves no method or environment could satisfy. There is no surpassing one’s past, but there is building upon it, until its foundation becomes strong enough to support one’s life into the future of deeper wisdom and greater age. To this, the great minds sought to conquer in themselves; simply to live in greater preponderance of their own simplicity. To make the mediocre, complex, is the apex of what the lower minds strive for. For why would an animal notice anything beyond its own survival?
955
There is a density of strength that can only be had through the breaking of the will of strength. No muscle is strong without knowing the exercise of risk.
956
Reason is the strength of the feminine.

957
There is a corruption of consciousness that subverts what isn’t said well, and that which mystifies what is said too well.
958
That which bewitches and lingers the most in the heart of man is not of God, or immortality, or perfection, but of the eternal.
959
Transcending self is to remain organic and active.
960
Need and longing will forever negate comfort and happiness.
961
There is no ‘productive’ use of anger or any negative emotions as laymen believe, other than to give them their purpose of fulfillment.
962
Reason/masculine: Order, idealism, precision.
Reason/feminine: cynicism, obfuscation, circuity.

Wisdom/masculine: transcendence, lucidity, impetus.
Wisdom/feminine: Nihilism, vanity, whimsicality, sublimation.
963
Nihilism begins where causation loses effects.
964
Do not let wisdom hold your tongue; nor bound your mind.

965
For possession of virtue seems actually compatible with being asleep—Aristotle.
Then let us not forget that virtues are the redolent roses of nature, feeling their power through their thorns.

Happiness can stomp man’s soul until it is no more.
967
The reprobate perish quietly; their shouts of ego, echo off nothing.
968
The degradation of the degenerate is naked and exposed before us, just as well, the nakedness of beauty displays greater and blinds the eyes of those preferring only nakedness itself.
969
A tragic thing, such is honor with allegiance to power.
970
Virtue exposed to excess, is no different than an indulgence.
971
Those who seek to change others, detest change within themselves; those who leave others to themselves, seek to master change in themselves.

The beast within devours the life that gives him life.

The philosopher is merely a seed planter.
979
To understand stoicism is simply to assign oneself a purposeful use of themselves.
980
There is the thinker who peers down at the ground in reflective contemplation, and the one who gazes up at the sky, looking beyond.
981
One can have strength and power without being strong or powerful.
982
Giving is the true display of power.
983
Peace is necessary for the cultivation of wisdom. However, it is the naive idealism of war it encourages which undermines this otherwise ideal state of power.

984
The frail mind is that mind which lacks the stamina to uphold a timeless truth. For certain truths are immortal and immortality is not meant for those living within the mortality of fleeting thoughts.
985
The wise exploiting fools, is akin to the predator befouling himself before the kill.

The untested individual suffuses the war-like spirit, until war itself takes its due from him, leaving him longing for the higher spirit.

990
In modernity, beauty does not speak, we must speak to it. It does not inspire, we must inspire it.

Solitude is unnatural to the human spirit. A treacherous unnerving terrain few will venture on. Only those who were born on it, know how to walk on it.

Above Strength and Weakness Empty
PostSubject: Re: Above Strength and Weakness Above Strength and Weakness EmptyMon Jan 13, 2020 6:24 pm

1002
Modern philosophy is the art of turning existence into theory.

1003
Strength is a balanced state of resistance.
1004
History must determine our legacy, not small minds of men.
1005
When you need to speak, do so; when you want to speak, refrain; when you have something of value to say, remain silent.
1006
Nature appropriates man; therefore, man must know himself to know nature.
1007
The absurdity of happiness is one does not choose it.
1008
Feeling is not seeing; seeing what one feels is feeling.
1009
Courage which whispers or roars, overcomes the lie.
1010
The only purpose for a belief in God, is to overcome it.
1011
There is nothing wrong with consuming sensuality, as long as it is digested by reason.
1012
It is laughable that some would find great achievement in winning a place in society; while this doesn’t even place them in the wake of the world speeding away from them.
1013
Perhaps the greatest challenge is to become aware that you are dying.
1014
A war with oneself should be a struggle, never a rebellion.
1015
The most outspoken advocates of freedom, are the ones enslaved by the idea of it.
1016
We should be careful not to be taken in by small attributes of nobility which cling to a person like debris; for many ignoble people only come in contact with nobility as one does dust in the air.
1017
Belief is the end of knowledge, courage is the end of virtue, alacrity is the end of strength, truth is the mean for it all.
1018
To attain virtue, in truth, is to first grasp its irrational nature.
1019
There is a hierarchy of precision which exists; for most only feed on the scraps of higher minds, while the higher minds must imitate the great ones, for no scraps are left by them.
1020
For the modern thinker, universal ideas are interchangeable with the particular, as they will affirm the first as absolute and the second as absolute based on the absolute.
1021
Practicing nihilism, means simply, making practical what is useless.
1022
Wisdom is merely a state of awareness; practical wisdom (worldly knowledge) is the conscious denial of awareness.
1023
Beyond ‘good’ and ‘evil’, is beyond life and death, nobility and ignobility.
1024
Power comes from mastering the art of nurturing a rose. Conquering comes from knowing how to pull it out while preserving its petals.
1025
The modern mind becoming aware, is only a stirring in its slumber. A prey animal freezing in consternation.
1026
The degradation of Heroism, comes from the tedious association of the Hero with “goodness” and the belief that it is mediocre enough to submit to a fellowship of such a brethren.
1027
Love is the great destroyer of life. We should not aim to love life, but simply to develop roots of endurable fondness.
1028
Actions speak louder than words, but words speak volumes of appearance.
1029
An open cowardly person is far less of a pitiful tragedy, than the one who has yet to know it.
1030
The glorification of virtue is a vulgar gesticulation of profound weakness.
1031
The weak and powerless should never be taken for granted; their lot is a will to power.
1032
Overcoming the innate deficiency of contemplation is what philosophy must strive for, as a King must constantly fend off hubris.
1033
Laws of nature are only the abstractions of forces.
1034
The object of the pursuit of power determines its outcome. For power can never be successful, or unsuccessful, but a means to both. The one who understands it the least will amass it infinitely, unchecked, until it consumes their strength to resist it. The opposite will extract from it only that which gives them more strength; power being only their wellspring.
1035
It should be preferable to suffer the deepest despair than to be joyful in acquiescence.
1036
Fear of oneself is an untapped source of power which lies dormant deep in the recesses of wisdom.
1037
Honor is not the absolute virtue, but the highest standard which to measure it.
1038
One’s soul is emasculated when there is no anger at that which warrants it; it is strong when there is contentment in lieu of happiness.
1039
Truth in character is superior to that of intellect.
1040
The attraction to symmetry is a state of a healthy mind. A mathematical proportion of inner quality.
1041
The only function equality serves is to affirm degrees of inequality to indirectly impose hierarchical order.

There can be no other compelling flux within us than the motivation of energy; the purposeful drive of energy. All our actions are based on what is innately driving us toward reactions. Our latent energy to become without resting, is the motivation of existence; the motion of self. The self is motion towards a function, or purpose, or end. Tapping into this motivation is the means to attain direction of self into a destiny, into the unknown. Being unconscious of this motion, is a slow decay of the spirit. To be unaware of it, is to drown beneath the slow evaporating pool of nihilism.
1043
There is nothing like the poignant agony of a state of peace.
1044
The purpose of beauty is to disillusion.
1045
Learning to smile in conflict, in rage, in everyday matters, is something of a milestone of the soul, the first glorious stage of acceptance of death. For all we do is search for ways to accept death.

1046
The hatred for life stems from the insuperable continuous demand that one must earn it. For even oneself, if lost, must be earned back.
1047
Innocence is the form in nature that teaches us the value of appearance.
1048
Man’s savagery in itself is not ugly, but only his proclivity to add to it.
1049
We tend only to consider the mind endowed with faculties of precision and proportionality; we never think to apply this to the spirit.
1050
The success of reason depends on exploring patterns rather than constructing ideas; for an idea can spell the death of the intellect.
1051
The fragility of strength lies in atrophy. It is never enough to develop a degree of strength before it must extend further or be avidly retained. Its quality is linked to its instability. Forever fading. It is the great glory of the Heroic to have committed his life to such demanding cultivation of that inner value which was so transitory and fleeting, to have found the way to finally tame it within himself, that his reward would be to have a fractional quantity of it solidified into his being, never to fade again.
1052
How much force of will is wielded is directly dependent on how much is lost.
1053
We are in a constant state of recovery and relapse.
1054
The one who is superior in the illusion of power, even if he secures victories by it, must construct a genuine philosophy around a reprobate identity.
1055
Necessity is a preferable choice over survival.
1056
The honorable man detests base things out of simple disgust; his honor is spared in dignity.
1057
The Will, as Schopenhauer remarks, is the root of a tree, producing the fruit of consciousness. Thus, let us grow inwards, rather than outwards.
1058
We must dodge Zeno’s arrows, not be the archers.
1059
One who has ruled the states of active and passive, will know how to conquer himself. One who has ruled states of need and gain, will know how to conquer others.
1060
The tedium of cynicism, is its discontentment with natural states of contentment, for the sake of discontentment. An answer with no question.
1061
Understanding the value of peace early in life, is akin to being endowed with a genius aptitude.
1062
Truth can be decorated, disguised, and even hidden, but always there to be seen.
1063
Human consciousness is but a step up from the animal. For the animal is never confused, it is predisposed to align itself with the natural patterns of existence which orient its purpose, while the human suppresses the instinct toward these patterns and instead create ones which are incompatible with them. All the while not realizing that the activity of awareness, of sensual experience, is too swift to allow for any given state of reflection which does not serve an immediate purpose, and that only those specific details, just as the animal perceives, it will accept into its constitution in order to necessitate survival. Thus, there can be no possibility for a higher awareness then to harness the force of time, to steady the velocity of events, and to understand that to attain more consciousness than the animal, one must use the ability to endure the impossible quantity of details and to master their human animal consciousness, by submitting to a necessity to perceive the same thing over and throughout the course of one’s life in order to truly grasp its meaning apart from an appetite of need. Our lacking is our means for strengthening.
1064
Mastering the feminine in oneself is to prevent it from knowing oneself.
1065
Pleasure is like exposing oneself to a germ. It infects your judgement, and can lead to severe madness.
1066
Intellectual defensiveness is not only a sign of a weak mind, but an incentive to the stronger mind to uncover that underlined value prompting their reaction.
1067
The hardest part of ourselves to truly master is temperaments.

1068
The reason for philosophy’s stark incompatibility with society; why the philosopher must always be a recluse, is not due to intellectual elitism, but that social affairs demand an actualization of the mind, a teleological pursuit toward a product which must contribute to a collective. The art of wisdom, is only the continuity of flux in nature, ebbing and flowing, without the need for any objective, other than to be objectivity itself, running along all streams and rivers of thought. In society, it is nothing more than an animal deracinated from its natural environment. Man has his connection to nature, himself and his fellow man. Society is an illusion of all.
1069
Learning is a form of acceleration that one must learn to halt.
1070
Having enemies, sickness, sorrow, pain and feelings of emptiness, are the most invaluable antidotes to nihilism; the greatest elements of life-affirmation; the highest procession toward strength.

1071
There is the fear of knowing yourself, and the denial of oneself. The former is only a delivery into death in the latter.
1072
The paradox in philosophy is a restructuring movement to form a proper structure, the highest one, through conflict of thought, as a war to peace. It works and doesn’t work.
1073
Optimization is a great deficiency in thinking. For most minds, no matter the quantity of exposure to truth, in all its appendages and details, only the weakest part of it, and that which appeases would be retained. The mind will follow its primitive attraction to reduce the most effort for the simplest reward.
1074
Weakness is the receding dispersal of heat after it reaches its pinnacle and begins to decrease; Its power fading, but still effective.
1075
The idea of Salvation is that one universal allure most, if not all, are willing to take under any circumstances, like a magic healing pill.
1076
A noble act in desperation or stupidity, is looking upon the descent of the last discolored leaf to fall from a rotting tree.
1077
We are not at war with others, we are at war with ourselves in relation to others with nature as the judge.
1078
The greatest pretense in society, is the absurd drudgery of refraining from barbarity.
1079
A reprobate soul who manages to utter truth, is a mutated hybrid between a charlatan and a disgraced nobleman.
1080
The constant desire for something new is only a desperate longing for that which one never had.


1081
A wise temperament has to do with a calmness of mind that allows perception to will its way to illumination.
1082
Shame is an orientation of the soul; guilt is a deterioration of it.
1083
Wisdom is knowing how uncomplicated things inherently are.
1084
Strength is not allowing weakness to be exerted, only absorbed.
1085
Suffering is the deepest sense of time we can feel; It is this ultimate feeling of the passing of time that weighs on us, and our melancholia, and the need for pleasure which simply numbs this sensation, replacing it with an illusory and palatable one. To master our suffering, we must master the flux of time by the mechanism of force and movement with it or against it. To resist it is to become stronger, to escape(to forget)from it is to become weaker and stupider. To follow it, is to accept oneself as a process within its flux and strive to awaken to it.
1086
To be master over oneself is to defer to the prowess of consciousness and nature’s dominion over it.
1087
Destiny is the subjugation of one to the rule of change.
1088
Silence is the fool’s hideout; for the wise, their home.


1089
Facing down adversity is about simultaneously accepting three possibilities, that you may live, die or win. All in harmonious combination produces the courageous charge, there can be no default on either one.
1090
We should embrace death, not wish for it.
1091
He who sheds the least tears, has ingrained himself well enough into reality, but with the price of over-brimming passions and rage.
1092
Power comes from keeping thinking and acting preserved in their respective and distinct functions.
1093
The pursuit of proof, in place of reflection, is an inability to understand, while nurturing the art of cunning.
1094
Conquering comes from being unconstrained by weakness or strength.
1095
Opportunity is an undiscovered well with only a limited offering of water.
1096
Adaptation is a byway into decadence.
1097
Art immerses us in the meaning of what may or can truly matter under the clamor of our judgements.
1098
One should be careful in asceticism that the strengthening of the self, would not be ground into oblivion.
1099
There is no reason to expect that a wise man would be better company than a fool.
1100
There is no redeeming that which has been lost, but only building upon that which still remains.
1101
Of death; the strong seek destruction, the weak seek elimination.
Of life; the strong seek war, the weak seek salvation.
1102
Good people are better off in blissful ignorance.
1103
Silence is the great breaker of Wills.
1104
Nature is not our friend or our ally, it works against us. To push back against it is to honor it and be in harmony with ourselves through its war against us.
1105
The man of power mostly is waiting patiently in churning passions for when he can exercise it, or otherwise actively looking for an awakening energy.
1106
We tend to want what we already have, and search for what is all around us.

1107
One should treat society as a tool, and individuals as purposes for that tool.
1108
Truth pulls in many directions; it offers many proximities; the idea is to master the few that count while spending the remainder of one’s life remembering where all the others are.
1109
A half-measured mind is the practical mind; a fearful strength.
1110
The attraction to light is not the flee from darkness, but its unification of meaning. The opposite is the edified absorption of it.
1111
We can say of philosophy that it is the artistic portrait of thought.
1112
Real justice unleashes its wrath upon both the weak as well as the strong.
1113
Apathetic minds and decadent lifestyles result in the greatest thinkers of morality and laws.
1114
Frustration is an expression of the discontent with the intrinsic pain of existence.
1115
A desire for power wrought in vile weakness produces the antagonism of the rage of power that leads to annihilating effects of all.

1116
I find there to be more worthwhile commendation for those who smile in the face of death rather than insult.
1117
The war strategy of the weak is to wait until the strong are dead.
1118
The two great teachers in life are suffering and time.
1119
The test of wisdom is to see what is far away and then have the courage to attain it.
1120
The Heroic and Noble are not meant to be possessed; only borrowed and protected.
1121
A noble intellect is tormented by not being able to forget.
1122
Academics adulterates all that is pure of the intellect.
1123
Mastering the feminine is a steep treacherous mountain we must scale, frightening as it is, if we wish to reach the summit where we can see things clearly.
1124
Idealism always uproots human passions from their natural order.
1125
Ideas with unintended consequences, will, in time, manifest intended natural purposes.

1126
There is a special sort of wisdom in considering everyone an enemy.
1127
The innate degeneracy of modernity is that it is a hybrid of mediocre beauty and base ugliness in all forms; some seem familiar, others foreign, and some even seem valuable; ultimately resulting in a general feeling of unease and angst.
1128
The tragedy of nobility is its peccadillo of innocence. For it is not in the saint’s chastity that is weak, but in his ignoble deficiency to retaliate.
1129
Goodness is the only human pretension worth abiding.
1130
Passions are undesirable only when they have no direction.

1131
The only solitary association wisdom has with old age, is its ability to let go of youth.
1132
Sever man from his community, and he will seek power over others; sever him from his identity and he will seek power for power.
1133
We can know how we associate with humanity by the way we view art; at a distance, or up close.
1134
Restlessness is a deep dependency on need.

1135
A life of truth would mean a life lived in action and inaction, virtue and concession, love and hate, goodness and savagery, reason and contradiction.
1136
A lesson we should learn from Socrates is that it is better to die knowing the truths that mattered, then to wallow in a feeling of emptiness in the truths that were unrealized. To know that we knew, is to die in peaceful honor.
1137
The glory of mastery is a method of rebellion against one thing and total surrender to another.
1138
We always aim to learn from our goodness and never our savagery.
1139
The nature of naivete is to take a serendipitous positive from a negative, and turn it into a virtue onto itself.
1140
Being is intimately proportional to becoming.
1141
Time is the only singular cosmic deity we should invest our faith into. It is the reaper; the shadow of death that looms around us at all times; the only form of pain that has a voice to speak to us.
1142
One can live within momentary expressions of potential, or live within full potential. Only the latter becomes a burden to bear.

1143
Language is the most dastardly nemesis of the modern mind. Metaphor is the lively spirit of existing as human; the modern despises his human existence.
1144
Wagner is a representative paragon of wisdom, detested by both the wise and the stupid.
1145
The simple mind thinks in particulars/individuals, the intelligent mind thinks in universals/wholes.
1146
To begin to think truly, one must return self-evidence back to being.
1147
Feminine wisdom is innocuous, but effectuating.
1148
Those who cannot understand metaphor, will accuse the ones who use it as deceivers; moreover, believing one is being deceived is a natural inability to understand.
1149
Know thyself is the flux of order in memory.
1150
The act of seeing or having sight, in itself, has been forgotten.
1151
There is an art in thinking, and an art in allowing thoughts to come to you.

1152
There are only two types of elitism; that over others, and that over oneself.
1153
War is nature’s way of expelling unfitness, bringing order to chaos, forming hierarchies, sustaining pressures of conflict and success, all for the sake of finding some form of equilibrium, somewhere.
1154
Politics is a contrivance of nature; virtues are an approximation of it, spirituality is a precision of it.
1155
In a world of inferiority, superiority is everywhere.
1156
Superiority is not authority or power over others. This is a form of weakness. If it becomes that, it does so only as a contingency of its own nature towards its motives and only relative to the weakness exhibited by the one being dominated, to the weakness inherent in the superior agency of the one dominating. The power of the center of gravity is maintained by perpetual contraction, not expansion.
1157
Growth of oneself comes from silencing the voice in oneself.
1158
A higher form of mind is the transfiguration of it from instincts.
1159
Anxiety is actually an acute state of heightened awareness; its suffering is brought on by its inability to become conscious of what this awareness reveals.

1160
Aesthetic tastes should walk hand in hand with primitive impulses.
1161
A path taken to the highest ideal rejects all idealism.
1162
Nature is always what is, and never what ought to be. Therefore, to value nature, or a return to it, is to desire a return to Being as purpose, and to fulfill that purpose in tragic comprehension.
1163
The enemies of reason are rationalism, education, academia, rhetoric, debate language, analytics, information use, fact worship, scientism, methodology, intellectual logistics, and any and all other area that attempts to honor it. There should be no honoring what is already within our ability to succeed, there is only the nobility in succeeding it.
1164
Deception is a Platonic divination. Meaning that there was a crucial reason why Plato distrusted sensuality; which had to do with spiritual attachments, not psychological ones as the modern myopic academics would have it. The strength of awareness and its correlation to our external wiles, will determine the quality of the intellect. If one part is out of balance, the other will overcompensate, as a limb does from being deprived of its opposing other. This will not only produce extreme proclivities and mentalities, but also blur the line between reason and desire. As we see in the symbolic depiction between Plato and Aristotle in Raphael's School of Athens painting.
Plato pointing up to the heavens of idealism, and Aristotle gesturing downward to the realm of physical objectivity. Their "books of wisdom" they carry also complimenting this mutual separation; as Plato's book is positioned upright, while Aristotle's is positioned flat towards the earth. Raphael also gives us a geometrical connotation of vertical/horizontal expression of genius. Possibly indicating the "lines of understanding" which extend out in their respective directions, into the time space continuum, covering the 'space of understanding' in binary; giving us a cohesion of what consciousness is within a paradigm of cosmic existence. The idea of balance is the theme. That we must stay connected to both sides of consciousness if we should seek to unify our awareness with our physical impulses.

This is the nature of the philosophical method, if a 'method' must be attributed to it: UNITY. This is what confuses lessor minds and their inability to grasp the cohesiveness of this model. If they give themselves over to idealism, they will become degenerate in their instincts, if they give themselves over to empiricism, they will falter in their spirituality and also become degenerate. There is a third animal however. The one who wishes to belong to both but has no ability to order them into his own awareness producing a dysfunctional constitution of confoundedness.

The one who reaches down to grip something deeper in order to extend it up to something higher is sort of a heroic miasma. Zarathustra's descent from the mountain was symbolic only from his unfortunate awakening to the degeneracy of the human mind. That even wisdom can suffer from naivete and also must go through trials and errors, which will strengthen it anew. Once one has been exposed to this degeneracy, this ancient dichotomy becomes clear in its ramifications: those who fear being deceived or look for reasons to be deceived are themselves deceived by themselves. Their universal distrust of what escapes from their awareness is an inferiority finding a superior prowess in rejection of existence. Therefore, it is nihilistic in nature.

Deception is the inherent weakness in human consciousness, because nature does not deceive, it is raw and visual. Only those who deceive themselves by believing something of hiding something from them, because they are too weak to see it themselves. To be deceived is to be trapped on the bottom of lower consciousness, unable to find a way to the higher realm.
1165
Knowledge, knowing, learning, are the passive states; reflection, wisdom, envisioning, are the active states.
1166
There is no other element in nature then ice to harden the mind, and no other temperature then cold to harden the skin. The darkness of ice will inspire one to find the light; the need for warmth of fire, will ignite it within.
1167
One should strive to be kind rather then good. Things such as goodness, piety or justice are the artifices of the worldly forces which determine good wealth of soul such as compassion, grace, courtesy; the good in nobility is without rule, this is the conduit through which it comes out with life and energy.
1168
Solitude is not so much about controlling the self, as it is controlling the world; so much as it is being in the world.
1169
The disability of leadership is its necessity to placate minimally, but perennially, to extend the length of reign; a state of self-induced attrition of war. This is what destroys it in the end.
1170
Genius is dangerous and burdensome, because it assails the mind with an overflow of existence.


1171
We should begin every act or thought, with the precision of our ability, the fear of its demise, and the hope of its effect; being awash with honest exertion will make way for the singular attainment we wish for every time, and we will attain.
