PostSubject: Satyr Mon Mar 26, 2012 3:23 pm

You are in my mind no way a Dionysian. You are a man of system, like all the philosophers who threaten the world with their 'systems'. You despise nihilism, you do not embrace it. You planed your life. You dare not let go of your mask. A Dionysian would not care if he would make a mockery of himself. He would search to expose his weaknesses, which you have never done. Of course you expose others' weakness, but you dare not expose yours. And you are protective of your weakness. A true Dionysian would expose himself without explaining himself, not try to explain himself like that turd RU, so in the end neither you or that dipshit RU can ever have any authority on what you try and systemize. This is all just quackery.

A nice system you have, all build upon the sophistry of the hidden humanists Nietzsche and that silly nazi Heidegger. In truth christianity is not a submissive idea as little of virgin fool Nietzsche believed. Jesus said he came to bring the sword and not peace. The belief in the superman is similar to the christian believe in the next life. Jesus worshiped the body as much as Nietzsche did. He did not resent evil, he embraced the evil people just as much as the good people, he welcomed the thief or murder to heaven, this is why humanists hate christianity, like Dawkins and Hitschens. Poor little saint Nietzsche, he was trying to feel important, he wrote of power and victory while he was jut a sick fool. An unimportant fool! tried to worrship what he lacked! think about that. Dont you worship what you lack? you are schopenhauerian, its so smelly in your writting, thats why you worship the Nietzschean baffoonery. Powerful people do not write about how they worship power and glory, only those who lack it do. And you foolishly claim that nihilists write about renounciating power, when in fact they do not care for it. It took me some time to realize Nietzsche as a baffoon.

Long live Bacchus
long live Rome
and Romania!
drunken immoralists we are
in the Church united
of Folly and Debauchery
We live with sheep and drunkery
our foolish lives of wreckery
we give not a shit about modernity
we want chaos and folly.
We steal from europeans without regret.
We care nothing but our fulfilment!
Romania is our kingdom of perversity
We and the gipsies are conquering it
from L.A. to Shanghai
we all over it.

Ofc. And I feel well as well. Rhyme. I dont feel resentment. I know the medium of Eastern Europe. I am part of the medium. Not like these foolish Americans or Western Europeans. I know exactly how history is for us in Eastern Europe.

And you are a perfect example of an "eastern" so called European.

So, I was feeling okay but still I must feel "better" now for some reason?

I don't attack you because after years of dealing with simple minds I've grown somewhat tired of it.
I know the routine, the poking, the angles.

I know what you will say in response to what I say.
Can't be bothered, really.

Plus, changing your mind is the last thing I want. I want you to stay exactly as you are.

Oh yes, and you think u are not the eastern european package of the seducer of fools from the west? u think we dont "get" greeks? we know your kind as charlatans, we interacted, we were lead and we commereced with your kind, my dear Satyr, sellers of illusions for fools. I do not have any bad feelings, because I understand you, you learn to survive, you are so similar to jews, my dear greek, my aunt is married to your kind, your kind is a commerce being, just as the jews, this is the true reason your greek culture bonded with the hebrew strucutural bible. U cannont fool me. My people know your illusions, they know your bourgoise kind, you may mesmerize the westerners, but as a romanian, I see past through the foolishness.

@Jester, Who is secret of Bacchus directed by?

The best Romanian film I've seen is The Death of Mr. Lazarescu.

Satyr is an orthodox atheist. That makes him very apollonian. I enjoy that, because there are too many feminized irrational Dyonisuses out there already. His orthodox atheism restricts him a little bit though. He doesn't see the right-left political battleground clearly. Because he makes himself receptive to leftism and liberalism by overemphasizing the importance of non-theism. He picked a wrong battle ground in my opinion. Nietzsche isn't the main problem, but to even discuss an utter trash leftist movie like "Fight Club" and not see it for the immature piece of garbage that it is, is a weakness. I see some hypermasculine aspects about him, though he has introduced my to the idea of "hypermasculinity" in the first place. Which is a little ironic. I owe him a lot.

All modern pop art is infected with nihilism.
Your appreciation of Lord of the Rings written by a devout Christian is fascinating. The black/white dichotomies and how the Elves (hyperborean) finally exit the scene leaving the world to “men” is also fascinating.

That you always side with the victim is what is the most fascinating.

By the end of the book the beautiful mutiplicity of Middle Earth is reduced to the common man.

Plato realized that in order to build a stable city one must reinforce absolutism amongst the many, while the few must maintain their silence sharing the “truth” of their opinions for themselves.
He claims, through Socrates, to have come to this realization through contact with some Thracian mystic (Zalmoxis) who introduced him to monotheism.
He returns to Athens a changed man, preaching a new kind of religion, after he sees what his earlier teaching have resulted in amongst the base.

If you were to ask me if monotheism is a useful tool that must be spread amongst the many, I would answer YES.
But the usefulness of an idea, a method, does not make it factual, particularly when it comes to human psychology.
The numerical dichotomy of 1/0 is also useful, but it rests on a simplification of reality. Its usefulness remains within limits and the products of tis application must continuously be corrected, adjusted to the reality where neither 1 or 0 exist outside the human brain.

The political and psychological utility of a concept should not be mistaken for its validity.

Reality cannot be endured by all.
Those that can must make it more palatable to those who cannot, if they wish to keep them happy and disiplined.

I think you've mistaken the Dionysian character of Satyr for its host.
If I am Apollonian, as I am, then why did I take on a Dionysian caricature?

You told me before: to provoke the common masses, who deny their nature (instincts) altogether.

------------

For a description I also offer the terms: Postmodernism, Relativism and Deconstruction (Derrida). You are not very flexible in your conversations. It's like you carry a dictionary of "deconstructions of phenomena" and then you just copy and paste, these entries wherever they seem suitable to you.

I don't favor the distinction Apollonian and Dionysian. You're more western and too little eastern. That's why you are a involuntary youtube guru, too. You reject the masses but also don't mind to get dirty amongst them. Your teachers are not to be found in the west. A Nietzsche or an Orwell who just confirm to you, what you already suspected anyway. Your masters are located east of Greece. Those that are capable to change your world-view. To make you an even greater man. If you're open to that.

My, my...another one has come to knock the old Satyr off his high horse.
Please be the messenger of this grand message…defer and refer as you please.
I have too much homework as it is.
What I see in the “east” is feminization far more advanced than it is in the west.
Little monkeys, so feminine that they seek their genitals in the west.
Smarter than average…yet emasculated beyond belief...emascualted into stupidity; little robotic, mathematicians, all theory and no practice, governed by the binary code (The Matrix anyone?) dropping out of the scene.
How well they took to Communism, and when they did not, how brilliantly they copied creativity and resold it as their own.

Buddhism became what it is, popular, because it was meant to keep the masses from killing the masters.
Best meditate than confront…aoeiiiimmmmm…best turn inward to escape what does not participate there...best find that emtiness and rejoice that it is in all one and the same.

I know, I know...I do not get the meditative task of "clearing your mind of thought", nor can I appreciate the insights your cleansing offers you, but I can appreciate its result.
I do not need to get it up the anus nor find some deep spiritual meaning in "uniting" with another in this way for me to see its end result.
I do not need to know an individual's entire history to see it there, in his appearances.
I am as flexible as I need to be. I hate bending over for women.
I use the same words when I am confronted with the same angles.
I'm old, you see...my back aches.and I've been through this a htousand times before.

I was once told by a Christian that I did not "get Christianity".
Shit, every moron out there, seduced by a mysticism, thinks his surrender to fear represents some profound step forward.
He didn't have to actually tell me what I did not "get", but only imply that there was a complexity only he, and his own kind, could appreciate, one only the saintly, the rare few, could understand and teach.
He too offered me salvation from my world.

Like a drug addict who finds in his intoxication visions he takes as a "deeper understanding."
Your desire to find a God should be explored by you.
How much do you want to belong to an otherness?
Did you not come here, like a female, wanting to rub-up against the Satyr’s erection?

Did you not want to calm it, by stroking it into ejaculating its essence?
Did you want to break it?
Can you hear how bored I sound on my youtube crap?
I'm just tired.

You know of hypermasculinity, what of hyperfemininity?
It's spirit is one of diceit...hyperbolic lies, inlfated redirections - so extreme that they almost sound plausible to a needy mind wanting something supernatural, something supreme, something less mundane.
Its passivity is a farce.

Let us see where you take us with your eastern wisdom.
So far you've proposed a return to Theism, yet profess to being an atheist.
Show us the way forward.

Shall we be convinced by our own symbols or do you wish for more creative expressions of the same shit?

Right/Left has been skimmed over in my [You must be registered and logged in to see this link.] I've tried to make it easy for anyone to attack me.
What you may call "simple" I call concise. I try not to bury my ignorance in verbal stunts....or mysticism.

But Right/Left, like all human abstractions, can be symbolized in many ways....as the concept of God can.
I've simplified the abstractinos inot one concept: absent absolute.

Right/Left are different directions towards the same END.
One promises a final ORDER, the other a final VOID, the only way the absolute chaos can be conceptualized.
Life requires a balancing act...an acceptance of limbo (temporality being a measure of Flux).
A controlled one, if you wish...if it is in your nature to be attracted to this.
This balance is Apollonian..."Nothing in Excess".
Remeber the tightrope walker?

This balance is always shifting, swaying, a pendulum increasing in its swings...randomness. The fall is inevitable for a creature such as man.
This is part of the acceptance.
Dionysus laughs at Apollo....just as females laugh at a male's desire to estalbish control and order.

PostSubject: Re: Satyr Mon Dec 24, 2012 1:17 pm

So you played the Apollo and now you play the Dionysos? The Apollo suits you better. You admitted in one of your vids, that you find sex to be overrated. (A satyr would never say that!)

First : Plato was right. Neoplatonism is the foundation of all occultism or these secret societies. The "elites". The exoteric religions (theism) are for the masses. Though I guess Guenon and other spiritual persons proposed a way to even work within theism in a way that is beneficial. ( I don't know how yet. But am open to find out. The Right Hand path of one Religion, as opposed to Evolas Left Hand Path, of more than one spiritual traditions.)

Neoplatonism, I guess, is a form of deism.

I am not talking about any modern eastern civilizations. I am talking about the old traditions.
That the east is feminized is a result of overpopulation (and unequal demographics: too many men on too few women, due to a preference of male babies and the 1 child policy. Infanticide of girl babies) and the I Ching. Not Buddhism, though it was misused also.

Deism is not Theism. It is just a higher aiming than the common marxist material goals of wealth and status. When you talk of Hyperborea, it is also aiming higher. That is Platos Idealism. Man doesn't have a soul. But he is contained within a soul. (Or he has a lesser soul? I don't know exactly.) It's a top-down perspective. (We are born of metaphysical ideas so to speak. We are not material, like Darwin suspected.) Of a higher soul and lesser souls. Humans being in the lowest realm of the (soul)cosmos. But not like a christian rejection of this nature, at all. It's pretty complicated at first. There are of course discussions. I have only studied some occult sources so far a few years ago. Plotin is more academic. I plan on studying him. That's going to take a while.

Quote :

How much do you want to belong to an otherness?

That is a good question. I do have dreams and ideals. So I guess I do want to belong to an otherness. But I could rephrase it. I already do belong to an otherness. My heart and soul long for higher ideals, than I find anywhere represented in this material world. But this doesn't make me reject this world or nature. It just lifts my view above the common. I am more discriminatory about my choices in this world. Because my (upper) soul does not belong to this world. Or the upper soul I am also part of. However you want to put it. Like I said it's a little confusing/complicated.

Quote :

Let us see where you take us with your eastern wisdom.

I cannot do the work for anybody else. The wisdom is all there. I don't claim to be a guru or master. But I'll provide sources. I have done so already.

Quote :

No.

Quote :

yet profess to being an atheist.

I was raised an atheist. I am a Buddhologist/Neoplatonist now. I guess that is a form of Deism, but not Theism.

Quote :

Show us the way forward.

The Aryan Buddhism Blog, is a great. That guy seems to be a western intellectual, much smarter than me. I am way more intuitive (feminine). But with what I understand: I agree with him 100%. He also provides download links to pdf files of Plotins Enneads and many other metaphysics texts.

Hyperfemininity ... So someone acts feminine and pretends to be all instincual and deeply rooted in nature? Well, you're "pisces", so am I, so we are deeply feminine. No need for pretentiousness there. Passiveness is our nature.

I guess Darwinism is really the essential point with you. This is a materialist worldview. Darwin proposed that we come from matter and the mind somehow devoloped from this matter. That is a non-platonic materialist worldview. That's why today leftists are the foremost Darwinians. They too are materialists and embrace this worldview.

The ideal, hte idea, is another word for the absent absolute.

Now this is a bunch of bullshit isn't it?
Spirit is a reference to the past.
Soul is a human abstraction with no real meaning. It can mean many things.
It can mean "spirit" as I defiend it...or "identity" or the crap Christians use it for, and you as well.
Identity is the issue.
What do you identify with? This determines your ideals.
If you identify with the herd or a segment of it or with the term "humanity" or "nation"....each has its own slant on identity.

How fortunate of you to be so special.

Confusion always tries to mask itself in the implication of compelxity. This is why the simple is not enuogh for you...you need the mysterious, to be flattered, and you hide your ignorance behind the excuse of "complexity".
If you cannot explain something then you probably do not understand it.

Ha!!!
And there it is...the feminine desire to absorb what stands in contradiction to it...levelling it down to sameness.

In modernity, or modern nihilism, it is all about "sameness".
A slight similarity erases mountains of differentiation.
So, even if clones are never perfectly alike it is the similarity which is focused on.
Then nature shows us how difference is all there is. Similarity is again, about patterns.
The mind seeks patterns and uses itself as the starting point.

Laconian wrote:

The typical lingo here.

Once more:
Matter is a form of activity which is less active in relation to the observing mnid.
Energy is what is more active in relation to the observing mind.

I live in reality not some mystical place of ideals and magic and certainties and wholes.

Laconian wrote:

Who cares what you call it?
I'm with Heraclitus...your Plato and his Socrates were a symptom of Hellenic decline.

Do you see your nihilism in that hypermasculine ideal your feminine nature has given itself to?
I'm not with Evola, unless one speaks of utility and manipulating lesser minds.

This is where you show yourself:
Quote :

The fact that you think "pisces" says something or that it's nothing more than a sueprstition wanting to make the other comprehensible, is how unlike me you are.

The effects of weather on the infant is one thing, but genetics an entirely other thing.

Astrology is to psychology what alchemy is to chemistry, and magic is to science.

For me this is just like the diverse soul-theories of NeoPlatonism, or the occult versions of this, that I've studied so far. No esacapism, though I have discovered some of that (escapism) with the actual occultists I've met, so I am glad to now know about the greek original(s).

Quote :

Spirit is a reference to the past.

You introduced me to the idea. I can relate to that too. It fits in with Neoplatonism. The past is also the "above" in that theory. We come from the ideas above and strive back towards them.

I did explain it. As it is sufficient for me. This is spirituality. Not philosophy or science, where everything has to be explained or understood in detail. I've only known it as occult knowledge. It's the first time I ever explain it to someone "publicly" or in even at all. Read Plotin.

Quote :

I'm with Heraclitus...your Plato and his Socrates were a symptom of Hellenic decline.

Yes, which makes you an even higher idealist than Plato was. Why I am here. My Neoplatonism is more modern, more suited for the decline we're in. Less struggling with the world around me. More feminine. I admit all that. Why I am here: to learn.

I am glad we cleared that up.

I explained what Astrology is in my Esotericism 101 topic. Nothing to do with weather.

There’s no mystique here.

It is what you would call “materialistic.”

I don't claim there to be ANY mystique. Neoplatonism is as complex as needed and as simple as possible. Everything is in the right order there.

You're good. I said that before.

Neoplatonism doesn't do that. Plotin doesn't. One should read the originals. And not go by second-hand sources here. They bullshit all over it and yes Christians adapted and perverted some of its ideas to form their cult of power and terror.

I don't claim a man that lived almost 1800 years ago to be on our present day expression level. But probably more refined in some parts even.

Sorry for using that word.

I've understood something. I'll present my understanding of Neoplatonism these days. I just don't like to copy and paste, but use my own words on matters that are important to me.

Exactly. Everbody is a mystique in this sense. L.Ron Hubbard said something cool. I can only paraphrase. 'The one is in power who has the greatest imagination.' He built his whole cult on being a failed science fiction writer. 'We're all part of someones imagination' or 'whoever has the most vivid imagination, is the one that dominates and people flock to', something of that sort.

The 'cult' around you comes from your writings and youtube vids. Your imagination. Is it close to reality? It satisfies some peoples needs...

It helps to think of the rule of: "microcosm equals macrocosm". Or the latin: "pars pro toto". Like you are a descendent from your parents.

Quote :

"Being pisces" means that Neptun was in alignment with the sun at your birth day, in relation to the earth. Look at your complete birth chart (or radix) horoscope (as it is called). It's like looking into your soul, with all the planetary archetyps in accordance to your birth date/place and time. (There are free birth chart calculators online.) You also have a planet that was aligned with the moon at the time and date of your birth (in relation to the earth). That is your moon sign. Very significant also. It shapes the character of a person. The star sign (sun sign) is just the persona that is outward, perceived by others. Children from 0-7, who haven't developed much of an identity yet are still to be regarded as more from their moon sign. So you are correct the SUN and the MOON are what is important in Astrology. It is just the other planets in relation to them (if they're in alignment or not, in accordance to the earth) that shape our horoscopes. (Horoscope means: to look into the hour.)

Quote :

Definetely! Much more than most westerners would give credit for! I guess there is a movie coming out. "The Master", should be a good watch. It's partly based on Hubbards life. Read his biography "The bare faced messiah" if you like a fun read. It's not accepted by "the Church". Especially read the first chapters with Crowley and Parsons. It's crazy!

PostSubject: Re: Satyr Wed Dec 26, 2012 5:58 am

The Feminization of the East lies in a false Traditionalism. We witness the same in the Islamic countries today. Their men are also becoming feminized. Why? Because male children are prefered. A father wants a son. (In order to pass on his legacy.) This is rational on the one hand, but it was taken up to infanticide or neglect of girl children. And then the harems: One (rich) man having multiple women/wives, and many other poor men with no wives at all.

Quote :

Plato and his Socrates were a symptom of Hellenic decline.

And this decline is not unlike the decline we are in today according to Spengler.

Why I try to relate to Socrates and Plato, these days. Not out of comfort, but out of a felt necessity. And not to refute any of their predecessors, who lived in times of a more ordered, more primitive Culture, like Heraclitus, and not yet a Civilization, with all its implications. We need guides that had to struggle, like we do today. And in this sense Socrates and Plato should be closer to our suffering, than Heraclitus and other earlier Philosophers.

The principle here is "similia similibus curentur". "Like cures like".

Am I decadent? Yes! (to a degree)

Am I feminized? Yes. (to a degree)

Am I weak? Yes. (to a degree)

So the common approach would be: to seek idols that are the "opposite", to build yourself up. If you're obese, take an example that is slim. If you're dumb, somebody that is smart. And so on. That is what conventional orthodox western medicine does. But it doesn't cure the illness. It merely attacks it's symptoms, it doesn't get to the core, the heart of the matter. And even if intervention on a symptomatic level is needed sometimes, in extremely hard cases. That's why I am not anti-science and do not reject the western way. I just want to fill the missing (eastern) parts, in our western mind.

So I wouldn't consider Plato and Socrates SYMPTOMS of the decline. Like you and I are no symptoms of the star sign pieces, but were born in a relation to it. No cause and effect here!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Nothing caused the other to occur. Mere analogies. It's hard to let go of the western cause and effect language. I made this mistake, above once, too. Aleister Crowley has rightly criticized this heavily.

So you can draw an analogy between Socrates/Plato and the hellenic decline. But the one occurrence did not cause the other. There are only analogies, in this picture. That is at least the eastern way to look at it. Westerners would always have to debate what is the cause and what the effect!? What came first, the hen or the egg? With analogical thinking one doesn't have this problem. One just states that certain occurrences happen simultaneously. Like Socrates/Plato and the "decline" of ancient Greece. Another term by Spengler for decline is: "civilization". I would call it domestication. Or even feminization.

Getting back to the formula "like cures like".

We could probably agree on that we admire Socrates and Plato for having been great Philosophers. You know them better, than I do and you know what to criticize about them, but in general we probably both could agree that they were great thinkers.

So I (knowing Spengler a little), at this point in our history of the "Decline of the West", would propose to exactly take these two Philosophers as examples for the suitable medicine for our time. Since "like cures like" and I don't believe in the application of antagonisms, like orthodox (western) medicine believes in.

This is all I am saying. Thereby I do not wish to discredit the West as a whole. Or if I present a different viewpoint than yours I do not wish to "break your whole thought system down" or anything of that sort. (My sometimes provocative style is lazyness. I am no native english speaker and don't feel like expressing myself in english at all times. And then I just want to get something started. Unfortunately it's the emotional crap that gets going then and not what I intented to point to intellectually.)

So I am not against western medicine either, as a whole. For example if there are emergency operations. A patients leg has to be taken off and so on. Heart procedures. All kinds of stuff. But in some of the areas of healing the more CHRONIC illnesses, the East has better ideas. Rather than suppressing the symptoms, like orthodox western medicine. "Like cures like", dates back to very ancient Greece.

I see Greece and India not only as the cradle of the Western, but also of Eastern Civilization. (Notice how here 'Civilization' is used in a good way.)

The "simile"-law ("similia similibus curentur", wasn't invented by Samual Hahnemann, but can be found already in the writings of Hermes Trismegistos). It's a cosmic law.

So you could call it Western, if you wish. I tend to use "eastern wisdom" to provoke westerners a little. There is something that got lost in all the scientific breakthroughs and achievements that are undoubtedly there in the West. The cradle of thought is India and Greece though, neither East nor West. But exactly there.

Shintoism that I admire in Japan, was only able to develop in this secluded and sheltered part of the world. Japan profited from the Chinese empire and their armed forces, until recently.

__________

Neoplatonism is found in Gnosticism to some part. (Although confused there.) And it is holistic. And therein lies the problem of expressing it as a whole. There'd always be stuff to fill in, the gaps. The easiest metaphor is "Platos allegory of the cave".

What is "up there" from the viewpoint of the man in the cave? His ancestors? A god? A creator god? Multiple gods? I really don't know and don't care, how anybody else defines this for themselves. This is where knowledge ends and belief starts. Where science doesn't reach. That's why the great scientists were all deists and not atheists. Even Paganism from my viewpoint is a form of deism. And not atheism. In that case the ancestors are the "gods". They are the "ideal".
_________

One thing the Easterners are ahead of NorthEuropeans is their sense for constant flux. Changes. Development. In this sense we tend to be much more static.

"And so long as you have not attained it,
this, "Die and become!",
you will only be a gloomy guest
on this dark earth." -Goethe
________

One more thing: the same doesn't cure the same either. That's why some diversity is always better than complete homogeneity, like in Socialism. Like cures like, not the same cures the same.

I followed your recommendation some time ago to read Spengler and Evola ("Things to read...").

Why did you think they were important back then (not so long ago)?
________

I don't believe in initial harmony (but respect). I believe in hegelian dialectic. A thesis that provokes an antithesis and in this confrontation leads to a synthesis. And this synthesis may imitate a temporary harmony, but is itself a thesis and might be challenged by another antithesis, which starts the process all over again.

Same with me and tibetan Buddhism. There is something valuable in those teachings, for westerners who are mostly co-opted by the Judeo-Christian kind of Nihilism towards a higher order: state or god. Even if the tibetan Buddhist teachings are nihilist towards the void.

The Westerner can see the immense difference between the two kinds of Nihilism and thereby learn to appreciate to go a third path instead: Paganism.

We are in a war after all.

What then is it that you consider valuable in Evola? I didn't get that.

Plato, who posited an unreal world of Forms, perfect and utterly removed from this one. Heraclitus, who posited the Flux, the imperfect, the mutable, the ever-changing.

He was attractive to the Christians because he slandered reality. He is attractive to you for the same reason.

See here:

Quote :

"(to a degree)" is you flattering and consoling yourself. You are far more decadent, feminized and weak than you would like to suspect..... and it shows in your behaviour, your tastes and your philosophical pronouncements.

I've been so fortunate to discover Satyr (but only this year). I read his essay and studied some of it. I am immensely decadent and feminized. I make no illusions to myself about that. But what does it do to wallow in self pity. I put myself out there, like I am and hope to learn from the best. Are you one of the best? Where have you challenged Satyr? Is he the apollonian male ideal? Or is he too feminized to some degree? (Chaotic? Not well ordered?) Strength is measured by weakness. I may be feminized in regards to this forum. In my surroundings I am pretty much alright. I wouldn't say the manliest man around, but okay. Manliness for me is mainly about order. So there is always room for improvement.

Like so many eastern philosophers.

Metaphysics are mental models. They refer to the real. They are not real.

A phenomenon is not constantly switching between slightly different variants of itself during the process of causality.

The way in which one conceptualizes reality is a result of ones particular psychological disposition.

The flux implies uncertainty, impermanence, changeability, usurpation. To a certain mind, applying these concepts to the very fabric of reality itself, as metaphysics, is unpalatable.
We have a predisposition to order reality into Thing and Not-Thing, into the binary. These designations carry with them the idea of the perfect Thing, the Ideal as Real. Therefore, Plato suggested that his Forms represented perfect Ideals (mental models) in reality.... that the process of causality represented these Forms being switched out, interchanged for eachother as interactivity occurs.

In effect, it elevated the Ideal above the Real. It slandered Reality. That is why Christianity loved it. All of the various Semetic infections elevate the Ideal above the Real. That is their main common characteristic, over all their mutations they retain this first crucial premise.

A turning away from the world and reality; nihilism.

It is not a matter of the simplistic Order (masculine) versus Chaos (feminine) dichotomy that you seemed to have invented, or picked up from popular culture.

Quote :
And what is reality to you?

Turning the tables is very feminine.

I have a thread called the Infinite Regress of Causality in the Lyceum. That is my metaphysical position.

Quote :
I am immensely decadent and feminized. I make no illusions to myself about that. But what does it do to wallow in self pity. I put myself out there, like I am and hope to learn from the best.

Is this the confessional? Am I your priest? Will I redeem your soul?

Did you come here to be saved?

Look at this:

Quote :
Are you one of the best? Where have you challenged Satyr? Is he the apollonian male ideal? Or is he too feminized to some degree? (Chaotic? Not well ordered?)

Are "the best" those who have challenged Satyr? Supplanted him, maybe? Taken his place?
Become him?

You are being treated gently because you truckle well. But you are still a dog. A little puppy with big, brown pleading eyes.

It is comforting to believe in redemption, as it is in freedom. But you are what you are. Your past determines you, as you are the continuing manifestation of it, it's effect. This past is constantly being added to as you move in time. Your genetics set the range within which you are bound and your experiences set the place within this range that you occupy.

Do not look for a cure here.

The "inifnite regress of causality" is part of the Münchhausen trilemma, which is essential for the "theory of knowledge" (Philosophy of Science). At the age of 26, that too, was my metaphysics. Maybe a long with George Spencer-Brown's "Laws of Form".

It was then, when somebody introduced me to the writings of Aleister Crowley and Hubbards Bio "Bare Faced Messiah", that left a strong impression on me and marked a turning point in my life, I do not recommend to everybody. From there on I went quite a bit down the rabbit hole of female wisdom. Until 1,5 years ago, when I realized I had gotten out of balance. It was towards the female end of the spectrum, I realized about a year ago.

Again, I am thankful, that you provide a space like this for Satyr and us other guests.
