838. Even ducks rape. Even frogs kill. The fact that you struggle to do or, in the worst of cases, even merely think of doing what mere ducks and frogs can do without a second thought is how you know you are an abortion; an abortion of a human being.
837. Traditional ethnic clothing is bullshit. If a country has this, it's a bullshit, backwards country that resents the West. There is no "traditional Italian clothing" or "traditional French clothing" because, in the West, clothing has continually evolved over millennia. What the Romans were wearing is worlds away from what the Renaissance Venetians were, or the turn of the century Sicilians, or contemporary Milanese. A country that has traditional clothing is a resentful culture that was discovered in its primitive state by the West, and at that point froze its clothing to this "traditional" state; in plain words: to the shitty rags they were wearing before Westerners took pity on them and gave them proper clothes. This stupid nationalism of the non-Western cultures shows up especially in major international cultural events, where e.g. the Arabs or the Africans come in rags, but the Greeks don't come in sheets because it's not 500 BC anymore and they are not that fucking stupid. The Greeks don't need to come in sheets to prove their "culture", because EVERYTHING AROUND THEM is their culture, including their modern clothing. All that the rags of the non-Westerners prove is precisely their LACK of culture, i.e. of evolution of clothing in tandem with science and technology, since they never HAD science and technology with which to evolve their clothing, or anything else at all. Worst of all, even the subhuman countries' rags are not fully "traditional" (i.e. fully primitive); the Arabs wear Western underwear under their rags, for example, or use Western fabrics and manufacturing techniques to make their "traditional" modern clothing.
836. Barack Obama: "No one is born hating another person because of the color of his skin or his background or his religion..." And no one is born educated either, moron. And if you blacks ever actually bothered to educate yourselves by reading any books, maybe you wouldn't be spouting so much stupid shit, and all the rest of us wouldn't despise you for being such massive fucking idiots who have the nerve to try to sell our very own decadent liberal propaganda back to us.
835. The centralization of wealth is a natural consequence of the progress of culture. In the past, someone would invent something, say a new song. Then the bards would learn it and fan out and perform it, so lots of people would be involved in that process and profit from it in some way. Now the creator transmits his creation more or less directly (to the entire species no less!), cutting out the middlemen, and leading to huge profits for himself, but zero for the middlemen. Fewer and fewer middlemen as we progress, because we are interested in, and want to reward, the ends, not the means. It would make no sense for us to try to find ways to multiply the middlemen! Like actors who will also lose their work eventually to digital replacements, etc. It is a colossal waste of effort to try to oppose this process, as opposed to welcoming it, harnessing it, and riding to the top of it like a cybernetically enhanced techno-God climbing to his rightful place at the top of the culture complex as in some grim dystopian sci-fi novel which I have already explained that, to US, it is in fact utopian 'cause we love that shit and live and breathe for it. In the long run, then, EVERYONE will lose their "work", because the purpose of progress is not "work" but "war", and co-operation of any kind (i.e. civilization) is merely a temporary means to that great all-consuming war at the end of which, as I have already said, there can be only one.
834. Wittgenstein: "What can be said at all, can be said clearly, and what we cannot talk about we must pass over in silence."
833. Final word on "mysticism": The entire point of literature is to understand and communicate. And then you have a bunch of yahoos who insist that there are INCOMPREHENSIBLE and INCOMMUNICABLE experiences and thoughts, but who nevertheless pretend... to understand and communicate them.
832. "Mystical experiences" are fascinating. But not so fascinating if called by their English name: "secretive experiences", or "obscure experiences", etc., depending on the precise translation you choose to use. It's like hermeneutics and interpretations: the first is immeasurably more fascinating than the second only until you learn some Greek and realize that they are the same thing. In Chinese, it's "jieshμ", but that's not fascinating to us and we don't pretend it's an entirely new thing because it isn't Greek, you see. The world of the intellect is already complex enough, but to common people it appears twice or thrice more complex than that simply because they don't speak Greek or Latin.
831. What is a "mystical experience"?
830. It is in fact equality that would have been unfair, since it would render the accumulated effort of generations both in the biological and cultural spheres utterly worthless and superfluous. And that's why equality is impossible in the universe, because as we'll be seeing shortly, the words "fairness", "justice" and the like are synonyms of "universe". "What is justice?", the super-children of the future will ask. And their robotic tutors will reply with one voice: "The universe is justice", i.e. what actually exists and occurs, and not the delirious vindictive fantasies of the defeated, conquered and enslaved.
829. "It's for charity." But if you want to give money, give money, the fuck you need a party for? "Because that way we raise more money." Precisely because you are fuckheads who don't give a shit about charity, but only about the hobnobbing and celebrations to which all the charity and the suffering it's supposed to relieve are merely an alibi.
828. The last word in the privacy debacle. The sad fact at the bottom of all the commotion is that you have absolutely nothing to hide, because your life is common, unthreatening and uninteresing. Amusingly, however, the less one has to hide, the more noise they seem to make about it. Real criminals do not go out into the streets to protest about their loss of privacy: they take care of it themselves; there will always be ways to hide things, for those who have things to hide. So: the commoners lose nothing by these developments, and the ones who have something to hide simply get on with the business of hiding it. So there's no need to worry about them. They can take care of themselves just fine. And if you stopped wasting so much time protesting about it perhaps you too would have enough time to do something that you would need to hide. And then you'd find a way to hide it.
827. What base creatures the PUAs and MRA omegas are. "I want the fairy tale", says Julia Roberts to Richard Gere in Pretty Woman, rejecting his offer to treat her like a concubine. And the PUAs castigate the film and all of Hollywood for promoting starry-eyed ideals. If they had been directing, she would have said, "Since I am a used-up whore whose Sexual Market Value (SMV) is about to hit The Wall, I will accept your business offer..., etc."
826. And what about entropy? All rules of physics must be broken, because in the ultimate game there's only one rule: There are no rules.
825. What is mysticism? All of you retards would have had far less trouble with philosophy if you could understand some Greek. "Mysticism", in Greek, means "concealment", "secrecy"; literally, the philosophy of obscurantism! The very essence of it is that you are not supposed to understand it because there's nothing there to understand lol, and the better you get at hiding this, the more your "philosophy" will be respected, and the less you'll be laughed at.
824. The various specialties of the legal profession attorney, prosecutor, judge, and so on are certainly intellectual pursuits, to an extent, but it's a relatively small extent, compared to the rest of the humanities. You are tasked with navigating a small, restricted set of rules and invidual circumstances. For a top judge or lawyer there is scope for research and investigation and initiative and original thought, but it comes nowhere near what is required to be a top phychologist or historian and so on. It's such a narrow field, that a man of genius would never even consider entering it. Geniuses can arrive at philosophy from any number of specialties Nietzsche from philology, Baudrillard from sociology, I from art theory but I have as of yet heard of none who arrived at it from study of, and proficiency in, the law.
823. Everyone's behavior is consistent from their own point of view. The most egregiously jagged line looks straight if you are short-sighted enough; and conversely, there are people of such subtlety who theorized even before the invention of microscopes that lines that look perfectly straight to them were, in fact, jagged.
822. The utter debasement of nations and races. Debasement not as an individual, but as an entire nation or race. Take the Skopjians, for example. For over 20 years this tiny Slavic nation bordering northern Greece has been trying to get recognized as "Macedonia", the birth place of Alexander and Aristotle. But the Skopjians are Slavs! They speak a Slavic language and have names like "Dragan"! WTF does that have to do with Greece lol? You lame morons don't even speak Greek! An entire nation of shameless losers, no self-respect left at all. Similar to black guy who said that there was an advanced civilization in Africa before the whites wiped it out to such an extent that we can't even find traces of it today (so how does he know about it?) It would have made far more sense to emigrate and, after a few generations, pretend you are from that country, or try to scrub yourself until you are white like Michael Jackson.
821. And why do we need to flatten the world at all? In the medium-term, two words: nanomachine factories. We have to put them somewhere. In the long term, it's called the Big Crunch. The world HAS to be flattened by someone, at some point, and being the active, and even super-active, lifeforms that we are, we will of course take care of that super-important task ourselves.
820. Contemporary guilt-tripping has spiraled completely out of control, and what's mind-boggling is that it's only bound to worsen, even though one can hardly imagine what more there is to pity that we are not already hysterically exhorted to pity on a daily basis. I am supposed to feel sorry for the poor, the sick, the disabled, and even the dead, who can't even feel anything any more. I should simultaneously pity the Jews for being slaughtered in the "Holocaust", and the Palestinians whom the Jews are slaughtering today because of their troubled childhoods in German hands. I am expected to empathize with the blacks in Africa for living in shitholes, and the blacks in the West for being discriminated against. I should feel sorry for the Indians and the Chinese for living in disgustingly polluted environments and working for wretchedly low wages. My feelings must simultaneously "go out" to victims of terrorist outrages, and to the terrorists themselves who were pushed into these suicidal acts by fanatical clerics and traumatic formative experiences at the hands of "imperialist" American drone operators, all the while pitying the clerics themselves for being brainwashed by hypocritical religious founders that lived centuries ago, and of course the poor Americans who are off fighting and dying in the wars of the rich while seeing their own standards of living eroding year after year. And when the terrorists blow up entire towers full of rich people, I must of course pity the rich people too. I have to pity every single animal species ever: from whales and sharks, all the way down to rodents doused in shampoo and made to dance for views on YouTube, and back up again to mammoths killed off in ice ages and dinosaurs "humanized" in Hollywood movies. Then there's the sad captive pandas in zoos that can't have sex, the tiny aquatic micro-organisms choking on microplastics at the bottom of oceanic abysses, and the polar bears starving to death after having eaten all the remaining seals and penguins in the polar caps. And of course there's the poor guys hated on because they like butt-sex, or the other poor guys who are so confused they don't even know what kind of sex they like, then the peeps who don't like sex at all, and those who are clinically addicted to it, and on and on it goes. Then there's the short, the ugly, and the stupid, the autists who aren't really sick, just special, the old who are infirm and helpless because they've lived a hundred fucking years, and finally the comfortable who've achieved the American dream but are depressed because they struggle to find meaning in all this "meaninglessness". The latest fad in the pity hysteria is the one involving millionaire actresses that I am supposed to pity because they had sex with ageing producers to kickstart their careers. If male actors could ensure illustrious careers by merely banging an old woman for 40 minutes, the streets of Hollywood and Manhattan outside production offices would be lined with dudes with boner pills in their pockets, bitches! But the absolute rock-bottom in this direction was reached when the lowest orders in the straight white male hierarchy (it's called the "manosphere" lol, as if there's anything manly at all about whining) decided to jump on the victim bandwagon themselves and started whingeing about being divorce-raped out of their families and affirmative-actioned out of universities and workplaces, while seeing their countries bankrupted by millions of poor migrants (that we are also of course supposed to pity) leeching off their social systems' lavish benefits. And if you think it can't get worse, just wait until we get in touch with aliens! Yes, the subhumans will go that far: after all, why stop at suffering homo sapiens, or even merely terrestrial life, when there's an entire UNIVERSE full of weak and declining lifeforms to pity? In fact we've already done worse than this, for what good Christian hasn't been told to pity a god for suffering on a cross somewhere in a desert a few thousand years ago?
819. I have never listened to an audiobook in my life. We are not children who need a beditme story before going to bed; if you are listening to a book, it must be a shit book, otherwise you would not be able to parse it aurally, or at least parse it properly. The written text is supposed to be much denser than the spoken word that is in fact the whole point of it because the author has all the time in the world to build it carefully and pack it with meaning. You are supposed to read, stop, go back, stop, think, take notes even, etc. when reading a book that challenges you and you should ONLY read books that challenge you, of course. Audiobooks are for morons, like podcasts, or YouTube vlogs, etc. If you touch that stuff at all I guarantee you that you are 100% subhuman. I would rather never read a word again than touch that shit, and in the one or two occasions that I have SKIMMED it in my entire life, or experimented with it in any way, I only did it to investigate the latest mindless fads subhumans have invented to waste their pathetic lives.
818. It is astonishing to me that popularizing scribblers like Dawkins et al. still adhere to a fundamental difference between "facts" and "opinions" over a hundred years after relativity theory, in which observers moving with different speeds (i.e. everyone, since we are all ultimately "moving with different speeds") can't even agree on what time of the day it is, let alone on anything more complex. In modern physics, the time of the day or the dimensions of an object, or its speed, or any other attribute of it whatsoever, are a matter of opinion, dear popularizing scribblers! and it is a disgrace that you, who have taken it upon yourselves to explain modern science to the general public, still fail to grasp this, despite all the pompous titles you hold and academic chairs you occupy between you. Nietzsche had already grasped it several decades before relativity ("There are no facts, only interpretations"), and without any mathematics, but if you blockheads still fail to grasp it even with math you should be made to eat the stupid dogmatic books with which you are poisoning the public's mind in the name of a naive, simplistic "objectivity"! (On the other hand, relativity theory is "Continental", since it was created by a German, and after all it's "merely a theory", without which our spacecraft wouldn't function, among many other things, and that's why the "pragmatic", "realist" Anglo-Saxons like Dawkins and his ilk are still stuck on Medieval Newtonian physics lol and that's a fact, retards!)
817. After a successful operation: "The danger has passed. It's not your time to go yet. Only God now knows when that time will come." But the truth is that not even God knows it. I mean think about it for a moment: Why would he need that information? Does God really need a database with the exact times in which every creature in the universe will expire? It is only the creatures themselves who think that such information is terribly important, and terribly useful to someone. And they are welcome to continue believing in this delusion, if it makes them feel better about themselves, but I am telling you that God doesn't give a shit, not because he doesn't care about anyone, but because knowledge of the exact nanosecond of everyone's deaths makes no difference to him, and to his caring. And so it is with all the other useless trivia that comprises God's much touted "omniscience". One would have to be dumb as a door knob to think such information useful at all, never mind a crucial aspect of godhood which is why subhumans believe precisely that.
816. Ultimate insight into and meaning of the Eternal Recurrence: The rest of the universe is merely a device that I use to recreate myself and all the rest is silence.
815. Solar energy is said to be "renewable" because, unlike fossil fuels, it "never runs out". But nothing is really "renewable" since, despite what environmentalists think, the sun is not eternal, it's just that it will take billions of years for it to die, so by our standards it feels eternal because our standards are so puny. I am not trying to dissuade anyone from using handy terms like "renewable" and such, but I am asking people to think a bit more about what such terms mean for everday purposes, and what they really mean, in a strict sense. It is this strict sense that you must master if you want to get anywhere with philosophy, and avoild fallacies like the "balanced" nature of environmentalists and so on. They love "renewable" energy sources because these preserve nature's "natural balance" or some shit. But where's the balance, pray tell, if the sun is due to implode and wipe the entire planet and everything on it and in it anyway? And since everything is due for annihilation anyway and the only way to "save" anything at all is some sci-fi Babylon 5-type Noah's Ark project that's anything but "natural" (and which again would fail to save anything in the long term since, after the sun goes, the galaxy will follow and eventually even the universe, in a sense, with the Big Crunch), doesn't that give us license to do whatever the hell we please in the meantime with the planet and everything on it and in it? In the long term, you cannot "save" the pandas and the dodos no matter what you do you can't even "save" yourself, you sorry excuse of a savior! so how could you "save" anything else? Everything's due to die: good, bad, mediocre all of it every single thing that has existed and will exist will flow and transform itself into everything else, so instead of wasting all your life trying to stop this eternal, cosmic process, maybe you should start thinking about how to participate in it? How to play with it, like the rest of us all the creative people, who are too busy crafting new, never-before-seen things by molding existing into future ones, and thus have little time to bother with all the havoc our actions wreak to effect this transformation? Or keep trying to freeze the universe lol, if that's what floats your boat. All I am saying is you'll be pulverized long before any of the creative people will be. And that's because we'll be the ones doing the pulverizing, son. We'll wipe you and everything you love out of existence without even knowing you are there, just like we do to countless other inferior organisms every day, and for the same reason (because your stupid attempts to freeze the universe are standing in the way of our creative power).
814. The environmentalists think lots of things are worth saving ultimately everything, in the kind of zooification and museumification that Baudrillard spent half his life railing against but for my part I think the exact opposite: that lots of things should be destroyed, and chief among them everyone who thinks that nothing should be.
813. Once more on Leibniz vs. Newton. Leibniz's God is supremely rational, but Newton's is the common Christian God whose will is "unknowable", and that's why on all the deepest issues Newton has nothing to say, but simply attributes them all to "God" i.e. to his own ignorance.
Lichtenberg: "Are all our conceptions of God, after all, anything more than personified incomprehensibility?"
So, for Lichtenberg, God is a catch-all term for everything one doesn't understand. So the more one comes to understand, the smaller this sphere becomes and therefore this God while at the same time the ego grows at the exact same rate, and begins to demand "its own" (Stirner). Finally, right past the tipping point, where the amount of one's insight surpasses the amount of one's ignorance, calling the ignorance "God" ceases to make much sense, and using it for the insight instead i.e. for the ego, for oneself is the only logical thing to do. And that's how the God concept shifts from designating "personified incomprehensibility" to personified comprehensibility, and God transforms from a "holy" ghost and spirit... to flesh and blood (and metal, and circuits): to an "evil" man and superman; to me and my descendants.
812. The very word "work" shows that it is a subhuman concept. Entirely abstract, divorced from any specific activity, since anything at all can be "work", even sucking cock or watching paint dry, as long as someone is willing to pay you money to suck his cock or watch his paint dry. The abstractness of money perfectly complements the abstractness of work, their fluidity and interchangeability, their perfect vacuousness, since neither "money" nor "work" have any inherent value when nothing more is specified about them or exchanged for them (money is just paper and work is even less than that since watching paint dry is worth less in itself than even paper, which you can at least use for something) and yet for the subhumans it is only THEY that have value: work and money, while the actual activity involved or its place in the socioeconomic structure whether fun or boring, harmful or beneficial, and so on is irrelevant and certainly uninteresting compared to the all-conquering importance and necessity of somehow "finding work and earning money" whatever these might be or exchanged for.
811. You are almost entirely shielded from reality, inside the slave society, and the only ones who can give you a wake-up call are criminals, or the police. Which it will be will depend on your temperament: if you are weak it will be criminals, if strong the police. And whether or not you will wake up as a result, or if you'll prefer to snooze, is another matter too: all reality can do is give you the wake-up call, but plenty of people choose to ignore it and die in their sleep.
810. The Strange Case of Dr Jekyll and Mr Hyde is without a doubt the quintessential Anglo-Saxon psychological novel, postulating as it does that man's "good" and "evil" sides are fundamentally opposed and may therefore be amenable to complete separation. And what an irony that the book was written in the same year, more or less, that the "contintentals" were writing Beyond Good and Evil...
809. The Blame Game. "Whose fault is it?"
808. What Is The Fagotcube? The fagotcube is my term for what a bunch of ugly, stupid and resentful nerds on the internet call the "manosphere". What these born losers have basically done is hijack the work of Erik Markovik, aka Mystery, and that of his successors' none of whom, nota bene, were ugly, stupid or resentful (Mystery himself was a very handsome, smart and kind fellow as were his successors, more or less who could easily have had a satisfying sex and love life without any theory or tricks whatever), and twisted and perverted it into a hideous mindset and worldview whose goal is purely and simply self-hypnosis: the closing of the nerd's eyes towards himself and the entirety of human culture and civilization and the elevation of sexual intercourse to the supreme human act and state of existence. Even worse, it's not really intercourse itself that the nerds are apotheosizing since any guy with a steady girlfriend has them beat in that regard, as he gets as much sex in a month or two as the best of the PUAs, by their own admission, get in an entire year but what they call the "notch count" in plain words, the inability to attract and retain a genuinely cool and beautiful girl and hence the necessity of chasing after and sleeping with a never-ending stream of mediocre-looking skanks and retards which, once more by the nerds' own admission, are not worth more than a couple lays at best, and most of them barely even one. This theory of the notch-count as supreme existential value, which sits squarely, so to speak, at the center of the fagotcube, is then elaborated by these pathetic tin-foil hat wearing morons and fagots (chief among them Heartiste, Rollo Tomassi, Roosh and Krauser just in case you thought I wasn't going to name names) into a complete worldview and philosophy in which even the price of milk or chance of rain tomorrow has something to do with someone's notch-count somewhere. You simply can't get away from the notch-count if you spend any length of time immersed in the wretched scribblings of the mentally stunted bloggers who subscribe to the fagotcube worldview, in which the masters of the universe are ugly, stupid and resentful losers who've spent their entire lives begging mediocre-looking skanks for sex. Never mind that some of the greatest thinkers and leaders ever like Nietzsche and Hitler, for example were pretty much virgins who had far greater things in their minds than mere ejaculation elementary historical facts like these get as much traction in the fagotcube as elementary biology gets in feminist circles; in both cases science and history must either be brought into disrepute, or be simply ignored, so that at last, after a sufficient number of asinine forum- and blog-posts and badly-written ebooks have been consumed, black will come to seem white and white black, and utterly disinherited creatures like the PUAs and the feminists will appear as supermen and superwomen adorning the crown of creation.
807. Redistribution doesn't work. It never has and never will. No amount of taking money from the rich and giving it to the average or the poor will ever make these people rich, because the moment the average or the poor get some money, they give it straight back to the rich, for the same reason that the rich became rich in the first place: because, thanks to their superior intelligence, they design the iPhones and perform the surgeries that every sane person desires. The only way for the scheme to work would be if the average and poor people themselves preferred the products and services of the average and poor people, to those of the rich, but they do not, because even they are not that stupid, and inequality continues. The journalists and pseudo-academics, meanwhile, are still trying to concoct increasingly elaborate schemes to reduce this damned rising inequality that, in their view, is the scourge of the 21st century, but here's where a true academic just stepped in, in the form of Austrian professor Walter Scheidel, to shut their bullshit down, in his great 504-page study of inequality from the Stone Age to the present, The Great Leveller.
"Only four things cause large-scale levelling. Epidemics and pandemics can do it, as the Black Death did when it changed the relative values of land and labour in late medieval Europe. So can the complete collapse of whole states and economic systems, as at the end of the Tang dynasty in China and the disintegration of the western Roman Empire. When everyone is pauperised, the rich lose most. Total revolution, of the Russian or Chinese sort, fits the bill. So does the 20th-century sibling of such revolutions: the war of mass-mobilisation."
In other words: Destruction, and only Destruction. Only mass destruction can reduce inequality, and a comet hitting the earth would turn us all into electrons, at which point there'd be no journalists and pseudo-academics left, unfortunately, to scribble a million tiny little articles to celebrate the ultimate and logical conclusion of their efforts.
806. I know there are some people who are interested in suffering, oppression, poverty, misfortune and so on, and in my own way I understand and respect how they feel and what they do about it. I think suffering whether human, or animal, or alien or whatever is great. It's cool, it's fantastic, tremendous. Very interesting. For my part, however, I find snowboarding far more interesting, and I prefer doing that instead. I am sorry.
805. The wizards of the financial system are said to be useless and even parasitical because they "are not creating anything", but this attitude is wrong. They take on risk, and given how averse subhumans are to this absolutely essential aspect of the creative process, what this group of individuals are contributing to our society is no small thing at all.
804. Charles M. Schulz: "I love mankind, it's people I can't stand." Precisely because "people" aren't "mankind".
803. 1000 approaches and Krauser still hadn't got laid, when he started out as a PUA. I got laid on my second. And 18th. And 19th. And 25th. By now Krauser has done tens of thousands of approaches while I've barely reached 500, and my book on pick-up theory will utterly demolish all of his. Can you see now the power of genetics?
802. Women are simultaneously portrayed as victims needing societal help and empowered superwomen who can do anything men can do. So which is it? It seems they need our help to become superwomen... but isn't he who gives the help always more powerful than he who receives it?
801. Women mature faster than men. And rodents mature in the space of a few weeks look out mankind! With a little affirmative action the polyculture of rodents will take over the universe!
800. Self-education is a myth. Nothing starts from nothing in this dimension of life either, as in every other. Reading a book is not self-education in the pure sense: you are still learning from someone (the author and all those that he learned from). I wish people would be prouder to have learned from others than to have learned from no one (i.e. to have learned nothing). Pride in self-education is a sign of an extremely low level of culture. Even animals learn from others.
799. Of course "hate crimes" are vastly different from all those others ones that are committed out of sheer unadulterated love.
798. The overestimation of the importance of the practical is the hallmark of the stupid, that of theory of the intelligent, and that of neither... requires genius.
797. "What would icycalm think?", many people are now asking. And at first this is a good thought experiment, but in the long run it doesn't, or at least shouldn't, matter. Don't try to guess what I will think about what you will say, like my various plagiarists now do, is what I am saying. That is reactive thinking, and it's always bad. The point is for me to keep hammering at the bad shit in your thought process not until you figure out what I think is bad, and thereby come to avoid it but until YOU YOURSELF COME TO SEE IT AS BAD, at which point you'll have internalized my way of thinking and you won't have to think about me or need me at all. That's how proper learning works everything else is monkey business.
796. Is the truth to the Right or to the Left? The "truth" is the continued functioning and maximization of productivity of any given society, for this is the objective of societies: production, not a pissing contest for the victory of some abstract-theoretical ideology. So at any given point in time the "truth" is on precisely that mixture of Right and Left policies that allows the society to function at its maximum rate of productivity. Everything else is "ideology" and pretty stupid ideology at that too.
795. A simple demonstration of the gigantic chasm of the difference in viewpoint between me and Roosh and the retardosphere. Roosh and the retardosphere think that modern women's standards are "too high", whereas for me they are absurdly low criminally low, even. If I ran things, it would be a crime to have sex with someone as ugly, stunted and resentful as Roosh and his friends and readers. If women adopted my standards no one living today besides me would ever get laid (and that's how it will be in the coming robotic future; that's precisely where cloning comes in). Nothing is more revealing of the kind of individual we are discussing than the fact that Roosh and the retardosphere ARE ACTIVELY CAMPAIGNING IN SUPPORT OF LOWER STANDARDS.
794. A handy way to differentiate between ascending and descending individuals is to observe their reaction to news of increasing competition. Do they yell the equivalent of "Awesome news, bring it the fuck on!", or do they resort to calls for collective action in order to "address the problem"? If the tone of their response doesn't tell you the whole story (which it should), note that the former reply as INDIVIDUALS, whereas the latter turn to some form of a COLLECTIVE body in order to formulate a response, and that does tell the whole story, every. single. time.
793. "Somalia is not a humanitarian disaster; it is an evolutionary disaster. The current drought is not the worst in 50 years, as the BBC and all the aid organisations claim. It is nothing compared to the droughts in 1960/61 or 73/74. And there are continuing droughts every five years or so. It's just that there are now four times the population; having been kept alive by famine relief, supplied by aid organisations, over the past 50 years. So, of course, the effects of any drought now, is a famine. They cannot even feed themselves in a normal rainfall year.
792. The higher the lifeform, the more powerful that it is, and therefore the closer it stands to God in the order of rank of lifeforms, and hence the more accurately it can empathize with and understand him. That's why the bottom-feeder subhuman Christians think that I love all lifeforms, which is certainly true to an extent, but with a tough, unequal love they can't understand that has little sympathy for and patience with weakness; whereas the superhuman Greeks conceived of their gods not only as refraining from helping mortals, for the most part, but even enjoying their suffering and being entertained by it, which is far closer to my psychology than anyone else who has ever taken my name in vain and presumed to speak on my account has gotten.
791. More than 99 percent of all species that have ever existed were extinct long before homo sapiens arrived on the scene, and the environmentalists are trying to convince us that extinction is anti-natural. That's the level of stupidity we are dealing with here.
790. "The concepts 'true' and 'untrue' have, as it seems to me, no meaning in optics." (Nietzsche)
789. Weak people need the old religions, for what are they to do in their hours of greatest weakness? They need an interpretation of existence that relieves their suffering. This interpretation must be based on a model of the universe, a schematic of the rest of the universe outside themselves, and this schema will of course be greatly simplified. All models are simplifications anyway, and given that we are talking about weak people here (which means: slow in the head and/or body, but above all in the head, since our species' greatest strength is intelligence) theirs will be an especially simplified model; an absurd caricature of reality, when all is said and done; a grossly simplified and exaggerated image of it, but still nevertheless an image of it, which is to say a view of the universe from a certain perspective. And just as a mole's view of the forest is extremely murky and basic and simple while an imaging satellite's is vastly clearer and more complex but still depicts the same object nevertheless: the forest, and hence is by no means entirely dissociated from reality is not a "pure fantasy" in other words, and certainly contains an amount of truth in it and useful information, such that for someone who had seen the satellite data and had the capacity to parse it and who was then given an image of the mole's viewpoint, he could identify, if he was perceptive enough, that yes, they depict the same forest, and here is a clump of trees that is common to both viewpoints, only at a different resolution and viewed from different angles, so will the philosopher treat the old religions' particular beliefs, examining each in turn and pronouncing them extremely murky and simplistic, yes, but still ultimately true, when all is said and done.
788. What lies at the bottom of all talk about the "materialist treadmill"? Treadmills are boring. People who use them as metaphor to denigrate "materialism", i.e. the products of mankind's creativity, are thereby saying that they don't like said products; that they don't know how to use them, they don't know how to employ them to enhance their lives and extract enjoyment out of them (not to speak of using them to create new and higher products and experiences...) What these people are ultimately saying, then, is that they are too lame to figure out what to do with mankind's latest and highest creations. Put simply and crudely, they are saying that they are not human... And they are not mistaken either! Take a good look at them and you'll see.
787. So, remind me again why everyone is so scared of the Devil, when God is the one killing everyone in the Bible?
786. If democracy's success then is a sign that the average person has become too strong to effectively control, communism's success is the opposite sign: a sign that the average person is a stupid peasant and that the gap between him and the upper class that's been lording it over him for eons is vast and utterly unbridgeable. That's why communism succeeded in such backwards nations as Russia and China, while failing miserably everywhere in Western Europe (even though the latter invented it via the efforts of a decadent middle-class intellectual). The crude enforced equality that Marx and his unhinged followers preached sounded like heaven on earth for the untold masses of Russian and Chinese peasants, but in the ears of the sprawling, multifarious European middle classes it sounded like the hell that it would indeed have been for them had they not risen up to smash it every time it tried to rear its ugly head. And of course, no one went as far at combatting the communist plague as the Americans. Just as they had rediscovered democracy before anyone else, the largest middle class the world has ever seen sensed the communist menace most deeply, and rose up to face it down. And the rest, as they say, is history. Modern history that quite a few people know, but that no one, besides me, knows how to interpret correctly, precisely because they only know history (i.e. random facts) and nothing else with which to interpret it.
785. Why did democracy originate in Greece and not in say Africa or China or Scandinavia? And why did it take so long 2,000 years! until another nation (the USA) adopted it?
784. Evolution is inequality. Otherwise towards what are you evolving?
783. The pseudo-intellectual dream about the internet was that equal access to information would make people equal. It's like saying, "Dogs are now allowed in public libraries". But what does that mean? That dogs will suddenly start writing treatises on Leibniz? Subhumans' magical thinking believes that it is the stuff that makes people, while it is patent that it is people that make stuff. Books make you smart, they say, for example. But if you are not already smart, a smart book will make you stupider (this is how pseudo-intellectuals are created). Or they say, "Money made him powerful". No, he made money because he is powerful (intelligent, enterpising, audacious), and history is full of morons who inherited a ton of money and wasted all of it. If you needed money to make money, as poor people believe, there would be no rich people and we would still be living in caves today.
782. What does the concept universe mean? It means "everything", which is as much to say that it means nothing, since it is precisely by distinguishing something from the "everything" that we create concepts and their associated names in the first place. The highest concept therefore finally proves itself to simultaneously be the lowest, the emptiest concept of all, the anti-concept even, that can be deployed at its wielder's whim to detroy all others a weapon of mass destruction of such vast complexity and terrifying efficacy (nukes are mere toys in comparison) that the only one who has so far managed to figure out how to use it is me.
781. What is tomorrow? The next stage in your self-transformation, the next form of you. Not to think of time in the customary abstract-disembodied manner, but in a deeply personal one. I am not traversing time, I AM time time doesn't happen without me, it even waits for me if need be time is something that I create by working on my environment and myself; time is me.
780. Eventually, cutting-edge scientists will start reading my work. Explain what will happen then. When I read a novel I correct the typos; I don't stop reading and start screaming that I can't understand what's going on because of the typo; I even take a pen and fix it myself. I don't even bother the author about it. As the specialist, it's your job to fix my "typo" that pertains to your discipline, it's not my job to become a specialist in order to fix it. I refuse to fall into your trap by allowing you to draw me into your discipline, where you'll have the upper hand and feel you can "defeat" me. I can only be defeated at my level; I cannot be defeated at yours; and if you have really managed to defeat me it will be possible to frame your counter-theory in terms that non-specialists too can understand, in which case there won't be a need for anyone to be drawn into your specialty to understand it in the first place. The days of scientists and pseudo-scientists shutting thinking people up by spouting gibberish are over, and the reason for this is that shutting people up is a reactive move, while the active move is to lead people, and you can't lead anyone with gibberish (see one of my latest copy-cats, Mundus Millennialis, for a recent demonstration of that). Let me also point out, if you attempt to use some new research paper or other that "proves" my theory is bunkum, the research paper that proved that most research papers are bunkum. I don't read research papers, I read books written by authors who have read many research papers and formed them into narrow, provisional theories. It is these theories that I use as building-blocks in my mega-theory, and if the terminology I employ is in places out of date, or even, on occasion, wrong, use your brain and your specialist knowledge to fix it, and then tell me about it so that I can fix it too and I will thank you for it. As for defeating me, save yourself some trouble and forget about it: only philosophers ever defeat other philosophers, and if you are any kind of specialist worth your salt you are excluded from that group by definition.
779. "Political corruption." Let's put aside the mindless hysteria that surrounds this sorry subject and think about it calmly and reasonably for a moment. Since democracy is an inherently corrupt form of government more precisely, a declining one it follows that what the democrats see as corrupt will in fact be healthy. And so it is, if you consider it logically for a moment. For what would be corrupt would be having an opportunity to increase your standard of living and that of the people you most care about in this world your relatives and friends and not taking it. To ignore the opportunity to get a better home or car, a better education for your children, better quality of food and greater scope of travel and so on that is what would have been corrupt, and the fact that, as far as we know, no politician seems to have passed on that opportunity, is proof of how healthy they all are. Normal, healthy people who know about the best things in life and are not afraid of running risks in order to acquire them for themselves and those they care about. And of course they will care more about their relatives and friends than for the rest of their state's citizens, just as they will care more about their state's citizens than for foreigners or aliens and so on. So corruption my ass. I would never vote for a politician who didn't steal. "Too dumb or cowardly to even steal" who would want to be governed by someone like that? Besides the fact that their stealing is not really stealing, as I've already explained, since that is what it means to govern: that you already own all of that stuff, otherwise how on earth could you ever be said to be truly "governing" it if you can't use it the way you see fit, or even profit from it at all? It would be an extremely weak form of government at best, which is precisely why subhumans get extremely weak governments.
778. Macbeth's famous line that life is "a tale, told by an idiot, full of sound and fury, signifying nothing" is often used by pessimists and the half-educated as a standard beneath which to fight their wretched fight. And Macbeth isn't wrong, if by "life" you assume he's talking about the universe. The whole universe doesn't signify anything because there's no one outside of it for whom to signify something, but parts of the universe signify everything to various lifeforms, and it's only because the universe as a whole signifies nothing that it can signify everything to everyone inside of it even to those who pretend that, to them, nothing does (and what that signifies to them is that they are cool, intelligent people who have figured out stuff that others haven't. Hence they become content with their lot, and turn their attention to projecting this contentment outwards via means of verbiage that's meant to glorify their relative passivity by demeaning the activity of others.)
777. Nature. The usual definition. But if birds' homes are nature, why not ours?
776. I could never hang out with a guy like Dan Bilzerian. He's into a lot of sports, and apparently he plays games too on occasion, which is great, and I am all about tagging as much pussy as you can handle, but what I can't handle is all the "hanging out" and posing and socializing that douches like him do. If you are up for some ACTION whether it be sports or videogames or pick-up I am all in; but if all you guys wanna do is hobnob with other boring retards like yourselves I am out and you douches can enjoy yourselves without me, cheers.
775. "The meaning" of "life" lol. As if there could only be one meaning! As if there were only one type of life! O subhumans! Whatever the meaning of your little lives may be, I can tell you right now for sure that it doesn't involve philosophy.
774. If you say, as Julian Barbour does in his great book The End of Time, that "time doesn't exist, it's merely an illusion", you might as well say "I don't exist, I am merely an illusion", as Baudrillard did indeed end up saying ("I am my own simulacrum"), since as Hermann Minkowski pointed out while elaborating Einstein's conception of spacetime, "Nobody has ever noticed a place except at a time, or a time except at a place". By killing time, in other words, you simultaneously kill all "places", including your very own: i.e. your own perspective on things, which you created precisely by creating your very own personal spacetime frame, whose uniqueness implies that 1) It will fundamentally diverge from everyone else's spacetime frames, and 2) When added to all the others will amount to zero because at the level of the universe all these divergencies (which you abstracted by subtracting their relative values from the sum of all of them in the first place) cancel each other out leading those who believe that a model of the world is the same thing as the world the scientists, one of whom is Julian Barbour to conclude that the universe doesn't exist, and therefore nothing inside it either, neither time nor space or Baudrillard and Julian Barbour.
773. How to explain the curious phenomenon that the vast majority of people writing philosophy are either geniuses or complete morons there are essentially no average or even above-average people seriously involved in philosophical text production. Take the magazine Philosophy Now, for example. It contains more bona fide bullshit and stupid gibberish than any newspaper I've ever seen: for the most part it's basically unreadable and yet its object is philosophy, while the newspaper's is mere journalism. The reason this is so is because the barrier to entry in philosophy is absurdly high so high that only geniuses can clear it. Everyone else fails to do so, and produces utterly worthless borderline meaningless, even tripe when they make the attempt. The barrier in journalism, on the other hand, is so low that even bloggers can easily clear it, and if you can't turn out a decent piece of journalism you can take it as a given that you've been diagnosed with some type of cognitive disorder. And just as even junk food is tastier, and far more nutritious, than a burned home-cooked meal, so even journalism is preferable, and far more informative and insightful, to a philosophical text not written by a genius. And that's why average and above-average people don't try to write philosophy: because they possess the sense to realize that they have nothing to contribute to it, while morons lack that sense and produce the kind of stuff found in any given academic paper on philosophy, or a magazine such as Philosophy Now.
772. The notion that there is such a thing as "mankind" as generally understood, and that it is it which creates culture and civilization is a fantastically erroneous conception of how all these things actually work, and banishing it forever from one's mind is essential if one wants to understand much about philosophy.
771. No world-class athlete trains on Thai or Japanese or Chinese or Indian food and so on. That's why all you guys are stunted even McDonald's is better than your food lol. Greasy Chinese fried rubbish, heavy Indian food and Thai sauces where you only taste the spices because there's no real food, tiny pieces of meat drowning in what is effectively a sauce-soup every fucking meal, or tiny Japanese pickled vegetables bereft of all micronutrients and protein. And you seriously wonder why you're stunted? Eat European food: eat Italian and German food, the kind of food a man eats before donning full plate armor and going out to swing a 40-inch longsword. How the hell will you swing that sword if all you had all day was pickled vegetables and sauce-soup? This alone solves the question of samurai vs. knights: the samurai would have got slaughtered.
770. The very purpose of technology is to create "unemployment" i.e. to free people from the lower occupations in order to enable them to engage in precisely the higher ones, but it's not technology's fault that most people are incapable of any higher activity than brute manual labor it is society's fault, for not adopting comprehensive eugenics programs that would have weeded out for good such useless losers from our gene pool. So what do we do now that demographers are telling us that it is precisely those low-IQ brutes that are exploding in numbers due to the infinite food supply and advanced medical care that our technological prowess has thoughtlessly lavished on them and that they'll demographically dominate the future? There's only one solution. We exterminate them. And it's precisely to my aforementioned Overman nation that this unsavory task will fall. But I hope the artists will help us make it savory. I even intend to kick off this artistic beautification and glorification endeavor myself if I find the time.
769. The Rise of Homo Abortus. The typical family in the past had half a dozen children, most of whom died young. But modern medicine conserves everyone, thus it floods society with mobs of weaklings who wouldn't have made their first birthday in previous times. Physically inferior because they only exist due to science's help, mentally inferior because of a safe, coddled lifestyle, and there you have the vast amount of decadent organic matter that generates and perpetuates modern decadent ideologies.
768. The Amish vs. technology. But clothing etc. is technology too. Everything beyond living naked in the woods like animals is technology even fire. So until the Amish go off naked into caves eating raw meat we have to say that their claim of technology being evil is bullshit: at best an idiocy (not knowing what the word means), at worst hypocrisy. And to say "technology is evil past a certain point" requires a definition of that point, which no one has ever attempted to provide because everyone instinctively understands that any attempt to draw a line here would be beyond stupid, so stupid that even the person who drew the line would laugh at the absurdity of it ("Motorcycles are ok but cars aren't!")
767. The best novels are written in a setting contemporary with the author, as in Proust. Because the best novels are psychological (since that is what the written word as medium does better than any other), and each type of psychology is influenced by and grows in a certain milieu, and however much an author knows of history or how imaginative he can be about the future, he knows more reality about the present in which to spin his psychological fantasy. Sci-fi authors and readers are always more concerned in the setting, which is really scientific and philosophical in nature, and historical novelists are fascinated by an era they never experienced, so it's no wonder that their characters' psychology is poorer in comparison, since it is strictly speaking an afterthought and not the main motivation for the work.
766. On the arrival of Barbour's book. It is incredible how I read now. 400-page book, God-level complexity, full of theories I've barely heard about yet in 20 minutes of skimming through, including the conclusion, I've already identified what he has to offer plus all his main mistakes and psychoanalyzed him to boot. I observe myself reading and it is a frightful sight. No hesitation, no doubts. Pure destruction. Like a computer from the future. The poor authors stand no chance. And these are the best books that will ever be written apart from philosophical ones, that is.
765. The coming cybernetic revolution spells the end of physical culture as we know it. On one side the nerds/weaklings celebrating the death of physical culture because they always sucked at it, on the other side the fitness nuts lamenting its passing because that's all they were ever good at. Ressentiment on both sides then, and in the center the cybernetic techno-Overmen laughing at all the resentful weaklings. Everywhere around them ressentiment, and in front of them the cutting edge, the bow wave, the future. That's how the flux works.
764. The "open internet". A couple of obvious places like China aside, I still have not the faintest idea of what that means. The most I have been able to ascertain, while looking into the matter, is that it is the digital equivalent to the socialist ideal of "your money is my money". And we already have institutions for people who think this is a valid concept, or even at a universal level a physically possible one at all. We even have prisons for them, which is where, in my humble opinion, all proponents of an "open internet" should end up, if the aforementioned instutions fail to contain their (frankly pathetic which is why I am not worried) efforts.
763. Italy's Five Star Movement wants Athenian democracy online. Direct democracy via constant referendums on the internet, and not even on small regional matters but precisely over the biggest = most complex, where non-specialists shouldn't be allowed to speak let alone vote. Disastrous for the states, but beneficial in one respect: removes politicians as scapegoats and reveals unequivocally that the real fight is not between citizens and corrupt politicians but between citizens themselves and that democracy is not a system of government but a system of peacefully managing ressentiment. When bad things happen in this regime the mob will have no one to blame but itself meaning each other, meaning the various groups; and the bitterest fights will be waged between the elites and the genetically inferior masses. But since one-man-one-vote, the elites will always lose. Before they were bribing politicians, or even running for office themselves, but once there's no representation there'll be no mediator to bribe but directly the billions of the unwashed (and that is precisely what redistribution is: the bribery of millions to assuage their envy and hatred and avert a civil war). In the end, competition between states for taxable subjects and the increased ease of immigration in EU-like single markets will drive all the elites to a single state, or a few states that offer best conditions, least ressentiment (say a flat 1% income tax), at which point every single wealthy person on the planet will move there. A new type of migration pattern, not according to ethnicity any more, but brain power pure and simple. Thus a nation of supermen will evolve, with a natural eugenics program since the mere mashing together of all those superior people will naturally result in an army of superior babies informed moreover by philosophy (which by then will mean: mine) against the sea of genetically inferior masses frothing with ressentiment. It is at that point that a new fiction genre will arise: the subhuman apocalypse genre, and if I find the time I will write the first work in this genre: I'll call it "Democracy's Last Days".
762. Orwell: "He who controls the past controls the future. He who controls the present controls the past." In other words, he who controls the present controls everything: both future and past. Orwell would have understood quantum mechanics far better than the quantum mechanists did, if he had bothered to study it. And since quantum mechanics developed in his lifetime, his failure to "control" it amounted to a failure to control his present and thus mankind's past towards which he was resentful, and its future which had he been able to envision it would have horrified him.
761. To understand what the concept "degeneration" means, consider the vegetarians, who are always trying to convince us of the benefits of abstaining from meat and restricting our diet to plants. But there are plants that eat meat! (the Venus flytrap, Dionaea muscipula, is one example among many). And these are the coolest, most interesting plants (also the most intelligent: the Venus flytrap for example can count) precisely because, though biologically belonging to the lowest rank of lifeforms, they somehow manage to prey on and eat lifeforms which are ostensibly above them, while the vegetarians fail at eating even lifeforms that they regard as below them! And is it a coincidence that the king of the jungle is a strict meatarian, since he only eats meat, including, and especially, vegetarians (who lack the strength and energy to run away or climb up trees precisely because they don't eat meat)? What we need to engineer, I think, is a plant that eats vegetarians, a "vegetarian plant", to teach these obnoxious scrawny douchebags a lesson about the concepts of order of rank and degeneration! The Romans used to throw Christians to lions to teach them a little lesson about reality; we should start throwing vegetarians to carnivorous plants!
760. Nietzsche: "The Greek philosophers seem to me ever more and more to represent the paragon of what one should aim at in our mode of life. I read Xenophon's Memorabilia with the deepest personal interest. Philologists regard them as hopelessly tedious. You see how little of a philologist I am."
759. Abridgements are for idiots. If an author deserves to be read at all, he deserves to be read from the full edition, if not indeed in full. My parents sent me the Leibniz abridgement; I had asked them for the full edition of course. And what did the editors cut out to get their botched edition? All of Leibniz's general comments on private life, society and culture, because they didn't find them interesting...
758. Peter Remnant and Jonathan Bennett, in their introduction to the abridged edition of their translation of Leibniz's New Essays on Human Understanding, call them a "flawed work", because "in spite of its title, it has the form of an extended conversation, and Leibniz's handling of the dialogue form is disappointing. Instead of two real people seriously arguing with each other, we have a mechanical spokesman for Locke (Philalethes) who dutifully serves up portions of [Locke's] Essay so that Leibniz's spokesman (Theophilus) can discuss them. Sometimes Philalethes abjectly backs down from Locke's position, but usually he just passes on, without comment, to the next topic; rarely is he allowed an effective reply".
757. The modern hatred of business and finance stems from the same reason as many other modern stupidities: the fact that subhumans suck at abstraction (which is to say at thought). But businessmen and financiers are merely cogs in a machine, and just as you don't make a machine out of a single part, but from many parts that can be removed and exchanged, either because some of them broke down, or because better ones have been developed, so it is with the various types of people who are involved in modern corporations, which is to say complex human organizations. Meanwhile, Richard Gere's character in Pretty Woman laments that he "doesn't build anything", because the artists who put these words into his mouth are no smarter than the average subhuman here, and suck at abstraction no less than him. But liquidating companies is the first step to building new and better ones. Richard Gere's character doesn't get this because he only works on this one part of the machine, and fails to see how he contributes to the rest. But through specialization, he becomes the best at that part, just as investors become the best at the part where the new company is financed and set up. But where did the investors get the money for that? Certainly not by allowing non-performing companies they have invested in to keep uselessly trucking on, burning up capital and seeing their assets depreciating to worthlessness, until the social parasites staffing these companies have devoured all the investors' capital because they are too worthless and lazy to retrain themselves and look for new jobs. Liquidators then are as useful as investors, just like demolition crews are in construction. Without demolition crews no new construction could have taken place in any densely inhabited area all the way back to Roman times at least! You'd have to wait for a war or a fire or an earthquake to build something, which is what waiting for the bank to close you down and go bankrupt is equivalent to. Better to cut your losses and sell everything the moment you have determined that the business is in terminal decline (i.e. that your fellow citizens no longer require your business's services, and therefore will no longer patronize them). And that's where liquidators like Richard Gere's character in Pretty Woman come in, and serve an essential function.
756. The environmentalists' gibberish about "balance" is ridiculous. Balance is stasis, but evolution is flow. But stasis is the opposite of flow, ergo balance is the opposite of evolution; the environmentalists' gibberish is anti-scientific (which is why it is hilarious when scientists become environmentalists: I guess they didn't teach Darwin at the university from which they bought their worthless papers). If balance reigned in "nature", before we came along and "disturbed" it, as the environmentalists claim, the dinosaurs would still be here and we wouldn't, and the same logic can be applied all the way back to protozoa and single-celled organisms. "Balance" is a loser's philosophy and environmentalism a decadent movement, because it privileges the environment, the outside, everyone else, over the inside: the individual and his sovereign will. And the individual's will doesn't want "balance": it wants evolution and flow, and therefore irreparable loss and destruction of his enemies, at the very least, if not also of himself.
755. Every single business organization today runs the same way they always have: fascistically. Except the most important one: the state. Why? Because it is the hardest one to run. Microsoft has 100,000 employees to govern, but the US has 300 million. Microsoft can fire someone at will if he is not being sufficiently productive, or if he's merely being annoying and forcibly eject him from its premises, but what can the US president do to someone who is useless? Nothing. And that's how you can see that he isn't really governing anything. He merely seems to be governing to those who have no clue what it means to govern. I.e., in a modern society, to everyone.
754. Why did Leibniz hold that everything God does is rational? This idea the so-called principle of sufficient reason is the core of his philosophy. Start by asking what a reason is and why we like them. Because they are mental contructs tools that help us take hold of a situation and affect it, shaping it to our wishes. Reasons don't exist we are the ones who invent them. "God only does reasonable things" therefore means "I want to understand God", which, if you understand what to understand means, might as well mean "I want to be God". Not that Leibniz understood this.
753. There's only one kind of person who can't tell that the genius is a genius: the retarded. The genius is a walking IQ test.
752. Happiness has nothing to do with circumstances or even choices. That's why you can have dirt poor Indians with smiles on their faces all day long and clinically depressed suicidal CEOs and rock stars. Happiness, or the lack of it, prove nothing either way. So money can't bring happiness, but lack of money doesn't bring it either, as the poverty lovers would have us believe. Quite simply, there is no relation between money and happiness. Happiness is genetic brain plumbing which is why it can be so easily manipulated by drugs and surgical procedures. And destiny or fate or your "potential" or social "justice" or "injustice" have nothing to do with it. This is your place in the world, and you love it. And if you whine about some stuff? Well, the world needs whining too, so someone has to do it. Might as well be you, since you seem to love it so much and are so good at it. I sure as hell couldn't whine anywhere near as well as you can. I am not being sarcastic either, I couldn't whine half as well as you do if I tried, and there is an order of rank in which even whiners are ranked, and I am found wanting. And all that effort you put into it, sending mails, reporting to FB or Twitter, making placards, going out and marching I get exhausted just thinking about it. If I put that much effort into something I would become the best in the world at it. Which is how you became so good at whining.
751. Ultimate theory of music. It is the only one worthy of a philosopher. Let's start with tempo, and explain why slower music is bound to be worse. Because there's not much complexity in it, since not much happening
in it, sonically, at any given moment (this is what it means for music to be slow). Also, better music needs more instruments, again due to complexity, ergo Sinatra is inherently inferior. Sinatra is pop music of the '50s and the
'60s, the Britney Spears of his time. Early rap in fact, lol, since his voice is essentially the entire band, dominating to such an extent it may as well be rap. The same with many signers of that era, e.g. Bing Crosby, etc. That's
why we talk of singers of that era instead of composers or bands, just like with rap artists. So at one end of the spectrum, at full speech articulation, you have a guy talking really fast, with either no music at all or
a simplistic and repetitive background tune to avoid taking attention away from the fast-talker, and at the other end you have opera, where articulation is so faint that the singer can barely be said to be speaking, and where his voice
is almost an extra instrument which no one can even understand what it is saying (which is where the libretto comes in).
750. On why I am not an "alternative" theorist but precisely the "mane streem". I am the mainstream me and all my predecessors it's everyone else who is a momentary lapse and blip in the great river of evolution. A couple centuries ago their blather didn't exist, and a couple centuries hence it'll be extinct, so who's "alternative" now, bitch? My "alternative" readers see alternative as praise and mainstream as an insult because deep down they are hipsters governed by fashion and anti-fashion. Once I become popular they'll trash me and find something else to read: my exact opposites in fact; precisely, that is to say, all the authors and ideas I am trashing now and for which trashing they claim to like me.
749. Baudrillard's obsession with production. He fucking hates it, like all pseudo-intellectuals. But production is just an abstraction from real activities which the people performing them love doing. How do you not get that and still call yourself a philosopher? Bah. Pseudo-intellectuals should be hanged. The Nazis had the right ideas on everything, they just didn't get enough time for them to properly bear fruit.
748. Pygmies in the Congo rain forest. For 60,000 years they have been there, and still haven't discovered agriculture. What an epic fail. Every day the same bullshit: roaming around the forest chasing little terrified animals, or digging holes in the ground for honey or whatever. It never occurred to them to simply capture a few animals, and then breed as many of them as they want for guaranteed food every day, with barely having to lift a finger for it, so that they'd have free time for thinking, and science and technology. And if you miss the hunt, you can still go hunting whenever you feel like it, as we do no one stops you from doing that but you do not want to depend on hunting for your frigging breakfast every day. Doubtless that's why they are still pygmies: if you have to run around for hours every day merely to catch some corn flakes, it stands to reason you'll be stunted for life: physically, mentally, you name it. You might say "At least they are in great shape". Bullshit, I say. I mean just look at them: barely any muscle on them; they almost look like Kenyan runners, one step away from starving skeletal Africans. Compare with a strength athlete who merely trains three times a week. The pygmies lose even at physical culture because their lack of agriculture hasn't bought them the time to study and experiment with physical culture. So they suck at everything, even in fitness matters, on top of the fact that, due to the harshness of their lifestyle, their women look like men. The documentary narrator says the 60,000-year thing as if we are supposed to be impressed. But being retarded for 60,000 years is worse than being so for 40,000 or 20,000 years how is it an achievement? Their "history" is so wretched that we ought to exterminate them for no other reason than because the contemplation of their existence depresses us.
747. Documentary about road trip from Berlin to Tokyo. Sounds impressive. But Paris or London to Tokyo would be even more impressive. Or how about New York or LA to Tokyo? But that would be less impressive if you took the shorter, westward route. In fact the most impressive journey possible would be Tokyo to Tokyo, where the end is the same with the beginning, since this would be the longest journey possible. "But we are already here", grimace the pessimists. "What would be the point of the journey? Might as well not go anywhere, and voila: mission accomplished"; while others accomplish it by going to Kyoto and back, or perhaps Shanghai or Hong Kong. Others, however, want the longest journey possible. It all depends on how much energy they have to expend, and it is that which determines what route they take, and all reasons they give for it or that others give against it are mere rationalizations after the fact. The fact is energy power, plain and simple and it is that which creates reasons on the fly to suit its requirements. Or is it so surprising that in our attempt to reduce everything down to one concept to power we would end up discovering precisely that concept at the bottom of every phenomenon we examine? And why did we choose power? But why did the physicists choose it? The two most important concepts in physics are energy and time. And guess which concept combines them.
746. Don't all religious people regardless of religion: from the ancient polytheists to the modern monotheists believe that they will be reunited with their loved ones "after death" somewhere? But that's also precisely what
the Eternal Recurrence says with the little caveat that we'll also be reunited with all those people that we hate, of course, or just generally dislike: which is precisely what the atheists believe, in their
own way, when they say that we don't have to look far for heaven and hell, since they are both right here, right now.
745. Explain why you can and should learn about physics and evolution from people other than Newton and Einstein and Darwin, but you can't learn about Heraclitean or Nietzschean philosophy from people other
than Heraclitus or Nietzsche. Because scientific theories are relatively simple, and can be grasped by many, some of whom will be better at explaining them than those who were better at devising them their
creators which latter, precisely because they were so good at devising them, will probably not be the best in the world at also explaining them.
744. As a corollary, it is not therefore Japanese car makers, Chinese commodities producers, or Indian call center operators who are taking jobs away from inferior and/or inefficient Western workers and industries, but the Western workers' fellow citizens who are putting them out of a job by preferring the cheaper and/or better foreign products and services, just as it is the reading public that has raised me to the top of the videogame criticism heap, by preferring my essays over those of the regional ex-leaders they used to read. Each special interest group campaigning against globalization, then, is not fighting some faceless foreigner, but their very own compatriots and fellow citizens, because they are trying to raise the prices and/or decrease the quality in the products and services that are available to them. But since every average person (not to speak of the sub-average...) belongs to some special interest group or other, as regards his own work at least, the anti-globalization movement as a whole gains traction and becomes perpetuated through their efforts. It is only the above average who have nothing to fear from globalization, and a whole lot to gain from it, but they are in the minority by definition, and so their struggle is a forever endangered one, and its outcome uncertain. The main point to remember is that even those who are nominally against globalization, are only so in regards to the requirements of the special interest group they belong to, while in regards to all other issues they are for it, even if they lack the brainpower to realize this. And it is precisely because they lack that brainpower that they belong to a special interest group in the first place, because being intellectually inferior makes you mediocre at best, and being mediocre means you require some group or other's protection against the superior, and will forever require it.
743. How globalization raises the stakes. Take me as an example, writing about videogames. In the pre-internet era, every country had its own magazines, and hence its own videogame experts. There were therefore quite a few such
around. Of course the most hardcore gamers knew which were the best magazines, regardless of country, or even of language, and imported them like I used to, if they didn't happen to live in one of those countries (or even if they
did, since no one could live in all of them simultaneously); but these were very few people, and the majority in each country simply read the top magazines available there. Now, however, everyone's online and writing, and
reading, in English, since that is the global language and global medium of communication. Suddenly, even average readers are exposed to the best of the best, and being the best in your own country means nothing anymore.
There's no longer
anything shielding you from direct competition with the best of the best neither language, nor publishing medium. Thus the best of the best reach a far wider audience than ever, which works great for them and for their readers,
but not for the regional ex-leaders, who are pushed so far down the rank via this process that many of them can't even make a living out of their trade anymore.
742. Lichtenberg: "The pleasures of the imagination are as it were only drawings and models which are played with by poor people who cannot afford the real thing."
741. The stronger you grow, the less real the world seems to be. Baudrillard suffered from this phenomenon as if from a disease; he was sufficiently strong to perceive the world losing its reality before his awesome analytical power, but not strong enough (which is to say not intelligent enough, since at this level of strength, power and intelligence are the same thing, as the rest of the body's contribution to the former, in the form of physical strength, becomes negligible) to analyze precisely this reality loss and understand it, and therefore see it as natural and necessary and good.
740. Whoever doesn't love his job yet continues to do it is a criminal, a thief, just as much as actual criminals and thieves, and many of them even more. That they are lawfully defrauding their fellow citizens doesn't make them better people, only harder to be discovered and punished, as they deserve to be. Theft, after all, existed long before the invention of laws that criminalized it, and perhaps the day will yet come in a future society of Overmen when it will be illegal to work on something that you don't love.
739. How revenge works. Lowering others indeed raises you, but by far less than if you had invested all that effort into directly raising yourself, because when you lower someone the entire rest of the universe is
raised too, so most of the effort you expended is divided among raising countless others. That's the difference between direct raising (working on yourself), and the indirect kind (trying to lower others).
But for those for whom raising themselves is too difficult (because they lack the energy, or merely even the knowledge of how to raise themselves, which is itself a kind of energy: the crystallized energy of those who worked to
invent that knowledge), revenge and acting like NPCs and zombies in a movie in which someone else is the protagonist is the only option, and that's why they prefer it.
738. Plato: "No one is more hated than he who speaks the truth." Why? Because "truth is will to power" (Nietzsche).
737. The weak blame "luck", but what is luck if not the sum total of the actions of everyone involved in the event? Ultimately of everyone else in the rest of the universe? And when defined in this way, you see that what they say is correct, for it is indeed the others, i.e. the strong, who are responsible for things having turned out the way they did. The strong accept responsibility for the event and reject "luck", i.e. the rest of the universe, i.e. the weak, having played any significant role in the event; while the weak absolve themselves of responsibility and foist everything on "luck", i.e. once more on the rest of the universe, i.e., from their perspective, on the strong; so in the end the event is the event, and the opinions of everyone concerned, weak and strong, agree perfectly once they have been correctly interpreted from their respective points of view, and everything is as it should be at the level of the universe. Which is to say: calm, peaceful, serene, eternal; even equal, if you think about it carefully for a while. And that's precisely what we'll do.
736. "Why does the universe exist?" You ask us for a reason. But what is a reason? It is a cause. So you are asking for the universe's cause, a cause that must therefore lie
outside the universe, since you are not prepared to accept that something in the universe could have caused it (it'd be like saying that a car's engine built the car or
that you were born out of your stomach). But we have defined the universe precisely as that which has no outside. So the universe's cause, we must conclude at last, can lie neither
inside nor "outside" it. We are therefore left with only one solution: the universe being its own cause, and since we have defined the concept cause to link at least two different things
(with one being the other's cause), we are not quite satisfied with this answer, since in our terminological scheme it is strictly speaking meaningless.
735. The theory of milieu, which Nietzsche called "a real neurotic's theory". Why? It is the theory that we are shaped by our environment, and consequently, that all events
are ultimately caused by it, since even when we seem to cause them, the environment has caused us first, and therefore it ultimately caused them. And since events cause the environment, the environment is shaping the environment and we have nothing to do with any of it lol. Indeed only a neurotic would see the world this way!
734. The only reason that in relativity all observers see each other's clocks as running slower than their own is so that they'll be forced to disagree. If one thought that another's clock was running slower, while the second thought the first one's clock was running faster as the scientists would have liked things to be then there would exist an objective reality that everyone could agree on: that one observer is moving faster than the other. That's why scientists would instinctively prefer things to work this way: because they are weaklings and hence hate disagreement (to such an extent that they'd "agree to disagree", if need be, whenever they too are forced by circumstances to finally disagree). This and only this is the reason that this "paradoxical" phenomenon is observed: the universe is simply set up in such a way that, regardless of who we are and what we do, we will ultimately disagree. And that's why we have invented the concepts of perspectivism and subjectivity, otherwise such concepts would be useless and there'd be no reason for them to exist.
733. Why must all scientific theories ultimately fail to predict the future?
732. The Da Vinci Code. A bunch of silly hocus pocus. But I know the real secrets of the universe, so why not make an artwork out of them? A film or a novel in the
Da Vinci Code vein, but with the real secrets instead of silly hocus pocus. But here's the catch: this is impossible. For if the excitement and the thrill of 13 billion
years of evolution could be condensed into a 300-page novel or a two-hour feature film, what would be the point of the universe's existence? That's why the universe is the artwork that
must be lived (or "the game that must be played", as Arthur Rubinstein put it). And the plot of artworks like the Da Vinci Code must be nonsense, to one degree or
another, since the only plot that can be completely logical, consistent and coherent is the universe's, which takes billions of years to fully unfold, and perhaps even more.
731. I say that everything the subhumans say is correct, but they say that I am wrong. So I am saying that I am wrong, lol. OMG PARADOX! But Gφdel has the answer to this, or at least the mathematical part of it, so it will once more fall on me to superimpose on that the psychological dimension. But will anyone understand it? People don't even understand Gφdel's math, which is a thousand times simpler...
730. All logic is circular logic anyone who has understood Gφdel properly or is even at all honest with himself in his logicizing should be able to understand this. The only thing separating superior logic from the inferior kind is the size of the circle.
729. The only reason anyone cares about "alternate" universes or dimensions (and what exactly is the difference between them?) is so as to be able to go to them at some point, or at least somehow communicate with them or learn something about them. But the mere fact of going to them or communicating with them means that they are not "alternate"! That they too are part of the "everything" which we have defined the universe as being! And it makes no difference whether this trip or communication will happen sooner or later, or even never: we may never go to Pluto, for example, but that still doesn't make that planet "alternate"! Light off the sun bounces off of Pluto and reaches us every moment, so we are continuously "communicating" with it in one way or another because that's what it means to be part of the same universe. And it makes no difference whether we realize this or not: dinosaurs didn't realize Pluto's existence any more than our ancestors did before they invented telescopes with which to see it, but the rays from there reached earth daily nonetheless, and the planet's gravitational attraction affected affairs on earth just as earth's gravitation affected Pluto, regardless of what any given species here might have thought or imagined. And if there exists a place which cannot affect us and which we therefore cannot affect (see Newton's third law) what would be the point of trying to discuss it? There'd be nothing to say about it, because nothing about it could ever be known! The only thing that could be said would be imaginations, fantasies, hallucinations and delusions which is why the science required to study "alternate" universes and dimensions or rather those who imagine, fantasize, hallucinate or delude themselves about them is not physics but psychology (if not indeed psychiatry, for the direst of cases).
728. People writing me off is hilarious. "He has nothing more to say", wrote in 2009 some Game Studies professor on his blog. Before the Genealogy. Before Videogame Culture: Volume II, before Orgy even, lol. When I have nothing more to say I'll be the one to say so, retards. And you better believe I saved the best for last.
727. The greatest question of the moralizers hitherto has been the question of why God allows so much "bad stuff" to happen: death, mischief, fighting, rape, destruction and the dashing of hopes and plans. And the answer is, obviously, because God likes all that stuff. Because he loves mischief, conflict, destruction, and the dashing of hopes and plans even his own, from time to time. Even a little rape now and then. God allows the "bad stuff" to happen because he himself is bad, among other things. Among many other good and hallowed things. And just like girls prefer bad boys, the universe prefers bad gods, and for the same reason (because "All good people are weak: they are good because they are not strong enough to be evil", said the Latuka chieftain Comorro to Baker).
726. What is it like to be me? The protagonist in Limitless (2011) on a slightly milder version of that drug. That's how I've been since birth. You see a film to get an idea
of what it's like to be me, but I've spent a lifetime trying to understand what it's like to be you. The result is my concept of subhuman. While the greatest achievement of your life would
be to understand me, one of the greatest achievements of mine was to understand you.
725. Nietzsche: "On the acquired character of the Greeks. The celebrated clarity, transparency, simplicity and orderliness of the Greeks, the crystalline naturalness and at the same time crystalline artisticality of their works, can easily mislead us into believing that all this was simply handed to the Greeks: that, for example, they were incapable of not writing well, as Lichtenberg did in fact say. But nothing could be more untenable and hasty. The history of prose from Gorgias to Demosthenes shows a labouring and struggling to emerge out of obscurity, floridity and tastelessness into the light that recalls the efforts of heroes breaking a first pathway through forest and swamp. The dialogue of tragedy is the actual achievement of the dramatists, on account of its uncommon definiteness and clarity against a backdrop of a people who revelled in symbolism and allusions and who were educated away from this especially by the great choral lyrics of the tragedy: just as it is the achievement of Homer to have liberated the Greeks from Asiatic pomp, vagueness and obscurity and to have attained to architectural clarity on a large scale and a small. It was, moreover, by no means accounted easy to say something with true distinctness and lucidity; how else would there have been such great admiration for the epigram of Simonides, which presents itself so plainly, without guilded figures or witty arabesques but saying what it has to say clearly, with the reposefulness of sunlight, not the snatching at effects of a flash of lightning. It is because striving towards the light out of an as it were inborn twilight characterizes the Greeks that a cry of rejoicing goes through the people when they hear the laconic maxim, the language of elegy, the sayings of the Seven Wise Men. That is why the promulgation of laws in verse, which we find offensive, was so well loved: it represented the actual Apollonian task for the Hellenic spirit of triumphing over the perils of metre, over the darkness and obscurity that otherwise characterizes the poetic. Simplicity, suppleness, sobriety were extorted from the people, they were not inherent in them the danger of a relapse into the Asiatic hovered over the Greeks at all times, and now and then they were in fact as though inundated by a stream of mysticism and elemental savagery and darkness. We see them sink, we see Europe as it were flushed away and drowned for Europe was very small in those days but always they come to the surface again, excellent swimmers and divers that they are, the nation of Odysseus."
724. The Greeks vs. the Chinese. The Greeks attained the yin yang too (their names were Parmenides and Heraclitus), but then promptly forgot about it (no one took Zeno's "paradoxes" seriously enough to give up on life and shut themselves up in monasteries, for instance), and set about mastering and conquering everything despite it they set about conquering the appearances at the bottom of which the yin yang lies and that's how they conquered the Chinese in the end too, since the Chinese, at the end of the day, are also "mere" appearances of course. What lies at the bottom of appearances, in other words, past even the yin yang the ultimate visual symbol; the most condensed, and hence most powerful abstraction is appearances once more; indeed precisely the ones the Chinese sages and Greek philosophers thought they were leaving behind when diving past them into the abysses of abstraction. But only the Greeks realized this and came up for air again, as Nietzsche tells us, "excellent swimmers and divers that they are, the nation of Odysseus".
723. I used to take milk with my coffee, on the rare instances when I would drink coffee. Now I drink it black. A grown man of rare, refined tastes wants his coffee the same way he wants everything else: strong, pure, undiluted. A grown man who has turned out well and knows what he wants wants everything hardcore.
722. How completely opposed to us the subhumans are, even down to the most basic of principles! To be "reductive", for example, is an insult among them! It is a bad thing to be! And since all analysis is reductive all abstraction, ultimately;
all thought since that is the purpose of it: to reduce the infinite uniqueness and complexity of the flux we find ourselves immersed in to a few solid concepts we can grasp,
and therefore use what the subhumans are doing with their denigration of "reductivism" is to denigrate thought! Even Baudrillard did it! That was his response to the Sokal affair!
He had no better retort to their damning criticisms than to say, "They are reductive".
721. But let's say you closed your eyes for the "last time", and then opened them at... an "alternate" reality (which wouldn't be at all "alternate", as your capacity to pass between them would have demonstrated, hence the quotation marks). In that case, you would have the same ultimate problems there as you have here ("Where do I come from?", "Is there a God?", "What happens after I die in this 'alternate' reality?", "Why does this reality even bother to exist?", etc. etc.) since, ultimately, you'd be the same person. (Maybe a little taller, or shorter person, or whatever, but deep down the same person, otherwise you wouldn't have retained sufficient continuity of consciousness for your new form to identify with the old one, and you'd have even more questions in that "alternate" reality than you do in this one lol.) So you might as well solve them all now and go to that "higher" place stronger and smarter and rearing to go, no?
720. There are some pretty gifted and devoted teachers and education researchers out there, who are putting everything they have in the attempt to educate as many children as they can
to as high a standard as possible. But do any of these education experts realize what education's for? So when their students come back with nuclear bombs and psychological
theories that dehumanize subhumans, for example, they get scolded for abusing their education, because their educators never bothered to learn what education's for. So, like I said,
"Every great specialist comes at last to commit" etc., since the highest lesson possible the very purpose of education is a lesson a mere teacher can never learn,
let alone teach to others, since it lies outside the field of education research, and necessarily must lie there. But do you understand why?
719. Common people are not interested in anything beyond the bare necessities of their everyday lives first and above all because they lack the intelligence to deal properly with those necessities. If you are struggling to make rent or haven't got laid in years, of course you won't be able to care about double-slit experiments or the meaning of meaning even I would hardly be able to under such circumstances! But I am not you, and making rent and getting laid are trivial challenges for me, so trivial that I use them to take a break and relax from the challenges of devising interpretations of double-slit experiments and figuring out the meaning of meaning; your greatest challenges in life are precisely my holidays from the greatest challenges of mine, which latter will remain forever barred and even imperceptible to you precisely because you find your "greatest challenges" challenging. There is however a group of people a very small group, mind you that cares to an extent about a few of the great challenges I care about, yet still without being very good at dealing with the bare necessities of their lives, or at least not with all of them; and these people we call scientists. These may be poor, or sick, or socially maladjusted and so on, but at least they possess the intelligence to care about and be able to deal, to an extent with one or two of the problems I care about; while the common man would not care about them even if all his personal daily challenges were somehow miraculously solved: by his winning the lottery, for example. That's why even rich people don't care about science, philosophy or even politics, really, any more than common people do. And that's the entire spectrum of homo sapiens: from the common man who lacks both the strength to meet the daily exigencies of life and the intelligence to care about the rarer, higher and more complicated ones; to the wealthy and the scientists, the former of whom can deal with the daily exigencies but not the rarer ones, and the latter vice versa... to a few dozen people throughout history like me, Heraclitus and Nietzsche, who can deal with everything. Is it any wonder then that, when we compare ourselves to you, we are downright forced to the conclusion that we are gods? Compared to you still struggling in your 20s and 30s to make rent or get laid, or master such a simple science as mathematics we might as well be!
718. The subhumans have so little understanding of and feeling for divinity that they'd tell God himself that he blasphemed, if he ever ventured to assert that he is God. He is supposed to be, by the subhumans' own admission, the most powerful being in existence but God save him from the subhumans' wrath if he ever mustered the nerve to say so on his own account.
717. I can move freely everywhere: from ivy league universities to maximum security prisons, and anywhere in-between, and everywhere I go I give the same impression: that I don't belong there. That is the price I have to pay for belonging everywhere. And that's how the perfect and perpetual outsider becomes everywhere the one and sole insider.
716. Stalin: "Ideas are more powerful than guns. We would not let our enemies have guns, why should we let them have ideas?"
715. You think he's being "irrational" for not accepting your idea, but it's his choice whether to accept it or not. We don't yet have machines that can force ideas into people's brains, so until we do every person retains ultimate veto over what goes inside his brain, and what stays outside. You think your idea should be universally accepted by everything with a brain, because it's "rational" i.e. because it "makes sense" and seems beneficial (to whom precisely?) from where you are standing but mere elementary thinking should tell you that different brains forming the same idea is physically impossible. It will be a merely similar idea at best, and that only if we are talking about similar brains. And since Neanderthals had brains too, as do birds and elephants and the clinically retarded, the rational thing to expect would be a great variety of ideas and not the universal agreement or similarity that the "rationality" fanatics are irrationally expecting, and even demanding. But when the machine that can force ideas into people's brains arrives, what will happen and mark my words about this is that when they try to force an idea into someone's brain who's been vehemently rejecting it, that person will mentally collapse, or at the very least fall into severe depression, depending on the severity of the case. And that's because ideas are not harmless things but extremely dangerous ones, and that person's brain knows its resources far better than you do, so when it rejects an idea it does so for a good reason, and when you insist on trying to force it in, despite it being obvious that his brain can't handle it, you are being absurdly unreasonable.
714. Is the world a game? No. A game is a game and the world is the world. However, the world (and your life, which is your personal part of the world) can be interpreted as a game, i.e. can be regarded as and be compared to one, and this, as we'll be seeing at length, is the most powerful possible interpretation of the world because it gives us the deepest insights into it and informs the mindset that allows us the greatest degree of freedom of action in it (which are by no means unrelated things). But there are other interpretations too. The Christian views the world as a punishment, for example (for something to do with an apple, I believe), while some people like Sartre and Camus throw their arms in the air and call it "absurd" i.e. they give up on the attempt to interpret the world at all. Strictly speaking, these latter are correct if you remove all the negative connotations and pathetic existential angst bound up in the word they chose which of course you can't remove because those things are precisely why those people chose that word. But regarding the world as it is inconceivable, unfathomable, beyond interpretation is a weak, reactive even form of thought, while seeing it as you would like it to be in our case, as a game is an extremely powerful, positive form that has the capacity if allowed to marinate in and influence the thought process of a species of life that has the strength to grasp it for long enough to shape reality to such an extent until at last the world comes to resemble a game and function somewhat like one for no other reason than simply because we want it to.
713. "Everything flows", said Heraclitus, but perhaps he was mistaken and there are things that don't flow. But what would it mean for a thing to not flow? It would
mean that that thing would remain constant, never changing: neither affecting anything else in the world (since to affect something means to also be affected by it Newton's third law
and thus change), nor being affected by anything (since to be affected means, obviously, to change). But even observation is an active process: an exchange of energy that affects both
parties concerned. So if something can't be affected by us and can't affect us, not even to the extent of the miniscule amount of energy exchange required for mere perception, in what
way can it be said to be part of our world? And what would be our interest in it in that case? And isn't this precisely the definition of non-existence? So either everything affects
everything else, everything is one, everything flows (all these expressions say the same thing), or nothing does, in which case nothing would exist. And there clearly exists something.
712. Lichtenberg: "The proof advanced by philosophers that there is a future life, which consists in their saying that were it not the case then God could not reward our final moments, belongs to the proofs by analogy. We reward only after the fact, thus God must also. We do this out of lack of anticipation, but where we are not thus hindered we also reward in advance, as we pay in advance our university tuition. Might God not also have paid in advance?"
711. Is there "karma" or isn't there? There isn't in the absurdly impatient way that subhumans would like there to be: if someone does something "bad", it doesn't come around to bite him in the ass the very next frigging second. Sometimes it does, but not nearly often enough to sate the subhumans' unquenchable thirst for vengeance. And anyway, the "consequence" of an action is yet another action, and since all actions are unique and ultimately incomparable, how could one of them perfectly atone for and balance out another? It's precisely the inequality of actions and lack of balance between them that keeps the universe eternally flowing! And karmic balance would have to be perfect, of course, because you are talking about some "fundamental" cosmic law or something, right? You aren't talking about human justice, which is already well documented, and goes by such names as "the law" and "the justice system"? In the absence of the possibility of equal and opposite actions, then, there is only one way for karma to exist, and that is if the consequences of an action are intrinsic to it if they are contained within it whereby the action is always its own punishment or reward. Because if the consequence is another, later action, there will always be the possibility of avoiding it, plus they would be unequal anyway, and hence not perfect, the way true karma should be. But if the action is its own reward or punishment or whatever ; if it is its own consequence, it would be simultaneously automatic, instant, unavoidable and perfectly equal with the deed by definition which is to say perfectly equal with itself. Of course subhumans don't want perfect justice, they want their justice their personal revenge so that it won't suffice that you went out of your way and spent a lot of good energy to stomp on them, they want some bogeyman to come out of nowhere and hurt you for it too, and this bogeyman they call "karma". Meanwhile, I cannot think of a more fitting reward or punishment for anyone than to have to spend eternity being... precisely who they are.
710. Vesper Lynd: "It doesn't bother you, killing those people?" James Bond: "Well I wouldn't be very good at my job if it did."
709. The baker has the perfect ideas in his head required to be a baker who spends 40 years in a room baking bread. The special forces commando has the perfect ideas in his head required to be a special forces commando who is airdropped at midnight behind enemy lines to strangle people with his bare hands while his face is covered with makeup. It is obvious that the commando would not be able to do his job well, if at all, with the baker's ideas in his head any more than the baker would be able to get his job done with the mentality of a commando, so what is the point of trying to find a "correct", "true" ideology with which to indoctrinate both these people, and everyone else around us, let alone all lifeforms in the entire rest of the universe? As long as we recognize that our civilization needs both bakers and commandos, we are forced to the conclusion that it therefore also needs the attitudes and mentalities that make these people possible at all, hence as far as we, who recognize the value of all these people, are concerned, there must be some measure of truth to both these types of people's mentalities, regardless of how antagonistic and even mutually exclusive some of them might seem to be. And it is precisely our job to find this truth, and to understand it. (But not to explain it to the bakers and the commandos, because if they understood our mentality they would cease being capable of being good bakers and commandos, and turn into us, who suck at being good bakers and commandos precisely because we lack the perfect baker and commando mentalities that the bakers and commandos have inside their heads).
708. What is a coincidence? It is an event or series of events to which we can attach no meaning. It follows that, at the level of the universe, where if one thing is to be
meaningful everything must be meaningful, there are no coincidences, and therefore no good luck or bad luck either since luck is by definition coincidental ; there
is no luck at all. It is therefore up to us to investigate all instances of "luck" proclaimed by the subhumans and show that they are not luck. That "luck", whatever that's supposed
to be (and what it is is an inability in him who proclaims it to discern and follow the chains of cause and effect as far back as is necessary for the event to be fully understood,
and this essentially magical conception of cause and effect this "luck" to disappear), had nothing to do with the event at all, precisely because in a universe of flux only events
can influence events, and "magical", "miraculous" causes (i.e. causes "outside" the flux, i.e. not causes) do not exist as such, but are merely a label that the brain attaches
to everything it fails to parse. "Why did that happen?", asks a subhuman, "What was that?" "It's magic! (or a miracle)", answers another; i.e., in Human, "I don't know". And that's precisely what luck, whether "good" or "bad", means in their language too. But it means a lot more too.
707. For the average person, his best chance of some evolutionary success is biological procreation to help his genes reach a little further into the future via the simplest, most direct means. For the philosopher, on the other hand, as the supreme intellectual power in the known universe, his best chance is with his ideas, his books. In a formula we might say: for the average person his best bet is with his genes; for the philosopher with his memes. It would be as stupid for the philosopher to bank more heavily on his genes as for the average person to bank on his memes: to suppose that his worthless, commonplace little ideas would actually have any measurable effect on the world. Better for him to make a baby instead. That will give him at least one person to (hopefully) respect and cherish him as a result, as opposed to none.
706. The sun: beautiful, glorious, life-giving. But at the same time a giant ball of constant hydrogen bomb explosions so violent that to look at it directly, even though it's millions of kilometres away, can blind you. And it's precisely because it's so violent that it can shape the rest of the universe to such a degree and help create and sustain life for billions of years. Subhumans can see the beauty (or at least part of it, since its full extent is invisible to those with weaker brains), but they don't want to see the violence (let alone the beauty in the violence). I can well see environmentalists, if left unchecked, asking for a ban on nuclear explosions on the sun one day, too dumb to realize that without explosions there'd be no sun!
705. Does evolution march inexorably towards a pinnacle such as man, or are humans as much an accident of nature as a product of orderly development? Scientists' initial conception of evolution favored the former view, whereas contemporary understanding tends towards the latter, but which is the correct one, and why?
704. Nietzsche has written the best books that will ever be written, period. I know you think that the idea of there being "best books" is ridiculous, but that's only because you are retards. And there are no best foods either, or best cars, or best climates, or cultures, or species, and everything is equal to everything else in existence: this is your philosophy, we know but only when it suits you (because when it doesn't suit you there miraculously appear plenty of things that are superior to other things); and we know this too we have figured it out all too well by now, so well that there are animals today that are more interesting to us than you.
703. Subhumans believe that the world "has problems", and that when these problems have been "solved" our lives will all be "happier", having at last attained, as a species, a kind of utopian state. But in reality things work the other way around, since our "problems" do not diminish but intensify and multiply the more
that we progress. Mankind today has a literally unimaginably greater number of problems than it did a mere few thousand years ago: so many more that a single person's brain no longer has the
capacity to contain them. We have so many problems today that we don't even know all the problems that we have, whereas all prehistoric man had to do, more or less, was find food, water,
some shelter and a wife. We still have to do these things today, but we must also tackle the ozone depletion problem, and the global warming problem, and the WMD-proliferation problem, and a
seemingly infinite and ever-multiplying number of others. And it's precisely our problem-creating, problem-multiplying capacity that makes us so capable and strong or, rather,
this capacity is merely a symptom of our increasing strength. After all, lazy people and complete idiots don't seem to have many problems: they are happy just hanging out or whatever
and never worrying about a thing (they even have a song about that). And conversely, isn't it only natural that the stronger you get the more challenges ("problems", as they are known in
Subhuman) you'll seek out and take on? And not only that, but these challenges will appear automatically due to reaction/ressentiment/Newton's third law! Otherwise what would be the
point of getting stronger if you never got a chance to use your increased strength? The universe would be a badly designed game! But fret not, because in this game that's all been taken care of, and the automatic multiplication of "problems"
for those who are getting stronger, of course is a built-in fundamental rule (the fundamental rule even), and that's why subhumans become ever more hysterical and lose their
minds with every such problem that we create: because, as we'll be seeing at length, they don't belong to mankind but to a far lower species, and the increasingly dangerous and
hostile territory towards which we are steering mankind's ship scares the bejeesus out of them. Which is perfectly understandable, when considered from their point of view, but
what is not understandable and completely unacceptable is that that point of view has been allowed to spread unopposed and dominate to such an extent that this era of
unprecedented growth of health and strength that we are living through is near-universally considered a corrupt, degenerate and declining era! So, for example, everyone is lamenting the
global warming that appears to be occurring due to human activity, instead of rejoicing over the fact that, after countless millennia of being the climate's playthings, we are finally
reaching a level of power where we can significantly affect it! And what would they say if they heard that we are due for a new ice age? So yes, there are daunting challenges involved
with the level of power that's required to control the climate, but it's far preferable and a whole lot more fun to face these challenges than to never have reached the level
at which they appear in the first place, and be simply driven to extinction one day, like countless other species, by the huge climate swings that happen every few thousand years
anyway. Subhumans, of course, know nothing about the earth's history and climate physics, so they imagine that this brief interlude of balmy weather we are going through is how the
planet has been forever and it's the same with every other "problem" they are hysterically lamenting. They curse the scientists and their governments' militaries for inventing nuclear
weapons, and for continuing to improve them, but they'll be owing them their lives the day these weapons are used to destroy or deflect an incoming asteroid or comet (and our weapons will
need to become orders of magnitude deadlier in the meantime to achieve this). Not to mention that pretty much the only reason we never had a full scale war with the Soviet Union
was nuclear weapons.
702. Everything is "toxic" in sufficiently large quantities (even water can kill you if you drink too much), but by the same token nothing is toxic in sufficiently small ones, and that's how quality can be reduced to quantity, as it must be reduced, because the flux is made of one substance, not several, hence quality must merely be an expression of varying amounts of quantity; and this quantity we call power.
701. Once more on the folly of "another" world. You are defined by your relationship to everything else in the universe. Ergo, without everything else you don't exist either. The "other" world you dream of would be... exactly the same as this one, if you wanted it to have you in it. But you don't want it to have you in it, and that's why you desire the "other" world: because deep down you hate yourself (and everyone else, since the "other" world negates not only you, but everyone else as well) and can't wait to get out of your skin. The mental process responsible for the creation of the desire for/belief in "another" world and associated verbiage is how advanced organic life that is declining expresses itself, while lower animals just yelp and scream, and inorganic objects bend and break and make the typical sounds that are associated with these respective processes. Decadence, in short, has a sound signature a group of characteristic patterns in the sound spectrum and if you want to get as good as me at detecting it you better pay attention and figure it out.
700. Athlete lady on TV throwing a ball. Her entire life she has been throwing it. But that's all normal people. And even the best of them, since the rest don't even get good enough at anything to be on TV. I have no idea how to write for normal people. I certainly understand a whole lot more about them than they do about me, but nevertheless, at the end of the day they are incomprehensible to me. I wouldn't even know where to start to write for them. How can anyone who's only interested in one or two things even exist? That's why we need bad books and bad writers: so that normal people will also have something to read (those of them who do read, that is).
699. 4chan is without a doubt the worst website in the history of the internet. I have never seen such an agglomeration of stupidity and wretchedness anywhere else, nor would have
imagined that so much ugliness mental, and no doubt also physical could be possible in this world if I had never come across it. And they are all fully aware of this, which is why
they prefer to remain anonymous, and almost immediately trash everything that they write, since they know it's rubbish. We are talking about individuals so weak and fearful that even
the nicknames used by forum users feel too restrictive and oppressive to them. Individuals so slow and incoherent that they don't want others to be able to connect even as much as two
of their posts together and hold them accountable for some measure of logic between them. This is the true bottom of the barrel of (sub)humanity. And that's why I keep an eye on it from
time to time. You couldn't even meet such idiots in the street, since people in the street possess at least the minimum amount of strength required to leave their rooms and walk around.
So if my site is the greatest site that exists and that will ever be made (and it is), 4chan is the lowest one, and will remain so for as long as it remains the internet's bastion for all
those who are attracted by anonymity (which is to say for nobodies).
698. Attempt at a new system of government, one not based on lies. Both despotism and democracy based on lies, though democracy on a greater lie than despotism (which is why it's so effective with subhumans). Attempt at a meritocratic system, based neither on heredity nor elections, but on challenge pure and simple competition; but not merely on popularity, as in democracy, but on physical and above all mental prowess i.e. on sports and videogames (tactical and strategy ones, that is). All the problems associated with it, but why it's possibly the future, in an Overman society, if such a concept be permitted. If I have any strength left in me after I finish this book I will try to start this experiment and project.
697. Can we please move past Popper's stupid principle that the ultimate test of the scientificality of a theory is its falsifiability? And what the fuck does that even mean? For in order
to "falsify" a theory you need another theory, duh! And in order for that theory to be "scientific", according to Popper's stupid principle, it will of course need to be
"falsifiable" too, by yet another equally falsifiable theory, and so on ad infinitum. And what about the theory of the falsifiability principle itself? Or is that unfalsifiable,
and therefore unscientific, according to itself?
696. "But I don't believe in anything", you say, and fancy that you've escaped our systems, but all you've done is to create your own and a miserable and paltry one at that! For you too are the god in the center of your own system every atheist believes in himself, in the last resort but no one else believes in you, so your system's influencing no one and shaping nothing, while, without even realizing it since you are so grossly uneducated, like all atheists you are merely a believer in and soldier of the atheistic religion which some philosophers created before they learned to psychoanalyze themselves, and figured out that they are in fact their own gods and that atheism is nothing but an attack and a puny one at that, a merely reactive attack on the gods of others.
695. A thought is a long-range action while an action is a short-range thought, so we can finally see that rationalism and empiricism are no more opposites than thought
and action are (or good and evil, or love and hate, or pain and pleasure, and so on) and that both are therefore necessary and to the greatest degree that they can be attained
without hindering each other's growth in order to build the strongest man with the widest range of thought and action, and the greatest freedom of movement possible, in both the
physical and the mental dimensions of the world. And this man who will obviously by that point no longer be a man we'll call the Overman, or simply God.
694. The diehard rationalist (usually, a Frenchman) wants to discover everything about the universe without getting out of his chair, while the diehard empiricist (usually, an Anglo-Saxon) is so near-sighted he denies the existence of anything that's not sitting right in front of his nose, so it's clear that in both cases we are dealing with weakness: with the rationalists the short-distance kind difficulty at close-range, difficulty with action while with the empiricists the long-distance kind difficulty at long-range, difficulty with thought. Finally, the Germans arrived on the scene, excelling at neither range but being pretty good at both, and that's how we at last got such towering philosophical monsters as Leibniz, Lichtenberg and Nietzsche astonishing jacks-of-all-trades and polymaths like the world hadn't seen since the days of the Greeks who scared the French and the Anglos so much they never wrote philosophy again (though the French at least tried, precisely because they were the rationalists, which is to say the theorists and writers. Writing therefore was all they had, so they weren't going to give it up that easily; while the Anglos didn't miss it all that much, since they were busy first in the form of the British Empire and then the American one with running the entire globe.)
693. The rationality fanatics imagine that religious people were completely irrational, and that science was something that suddenly appeared one day out of the blue and utterly changed everyone's thought-processes and world-perceptions an unforgivably gross and crude simplification of what really happened that's responsible for their failure to see the connections between science and religion (and therefore between philosophy and religion, since the sciences are merely the various philosophical branches). I mean it's not as if the ancients were too dumb to make the connection between e.g. clouds and rain, it's just that they interpreted rain as e.g. "Zeus's will", whereas the scientists are more or less saying it is the clouds'! But if we define Zeus = the clouds, what exactly has changed in the two schemas? Something is causing the rain; there must be one or more reasons for why it's raining both we and the ancients agree on that ; and precisely because we both look for reasons we are both rational human beings and lifeforms! That's what rationality is: the belief in the existence of reasons for everything! So the religious man too is rational, the only difference being that the reasons he finds all around him are gross and crude reasons because his brain either due to genetic or cultural inferiority, or both works in a correspondingly gross and crude manner (with monotheists' brains functioning in a more crude and gross manner than polytheists', since the former are only capable of "resolving" everything to a single reason: the will of their single monotheistic "God").
692. What scientists call "random" we philosophers call "will". But it will take a hell of a lot of analysis on my part to make this understandable to non-philosophers, and non-geniuses to boot. On with it then!
691. You say it was the mammals' "luck" that the dinosaurs were wiped out, and finally gave them free rein of the planet. But the dinosaurs had millions of years to evolve a civilization and advanced technology to counter the asteroid or escape to another planet, and they showed no signs of heading in that direction in what at least by our standards (obviously not theirs) was ample time to do so, so if that asteroid hadn't wiped them out another one would have, or climate change (which is the other main, probably even more important, mass extinction mechanism), and at the end of it all you have the sun's depletion and heat death. So the dinosaurs' extinction was neither lucky nor unlucky, it was inevitable, and so will ours be if we don't get off our asses and prioritize Mars's colonization over "equal rights with porcupines" or "ending poverty for niggers with sub-100 average IQ", and other such absurdly retarded modern fagotries that don't even make any logical sense if you stop for a second to consider what they really mean, and what they'd entail.
690. Everyone I have ever known and looked up to has degenerated. And everyone in the news sounds like a pygmy a one-trick pony at best. I search in vain the planet for a man I can respect. In the absence of any living man I can look up to, I am left with great men from the past and of the future. And the only link between them is, inevitably, myself.
689. "Colonel Smithers's voice had taken on a new briskness. His eyes were alight. He had his lecture pat. Bond sat back. He was prepared to listen to anyone who was master of his subject, any subject."
688. Perhaps the most pervasive and insidious error in a democracy, after the myth of equality, is the demand that citizens educate themselves on the issues of the day and form responsible
opinions on them, in order to be good voters. This is such an astonishingly stupid demand that it defies belief. Take the 2008 global financial crisis, for example. We are talking about
such a complicated matter that the greatest authorities on it people who have devoted their entire lives to economics and hold half a dozen advanced degrees each and all the university
chairs and institutional presidencies in the world between them can't agree on what went wrong or what should be done about it, and you're asking taxi drivers and ballerinas and brain
surgeons to drop everything they are doing in their lives and start reading up on economics in order to make up their own minds on it. But if they did that for thankfully they don't,
no one does, not even those who make a living out of pretending to: the pseudo-intellectuals who would drive our taxis or dance in our ballets or operate on our brains? And do you really
want the person who cuts your skull open to stick sharp knives into your brain to have spent the previous night sleeplessly poring over economics textbooks? Not even smart people, like the
brain surgeon, who at least possess the capacity to understand the issues, should concern themselves in the least with them, let alone the mass of average and sub-average
Joes who are stuggling on a daily basis to merely survive. In the last resort even I, the most intelligent lifeform in the known universe, haven't much of an opinion on what went
wrong in 2008, never mind on what would be the most effective way to fix it. From what little I have heard and I could be very wrong about all this, which I have no qualms admitting,
which is why I don't pretend to be knowledgeable on the subject or demand that my poorly informed opinion should count for anything it seems that some big institutional lenders made some
bad bets and became insolvent, but letting them fail would have hurt the economy and thus the general public far more, in the short and medium term, than the public's paying for the
financiers' mistakes out of its own pocket, so this is what was done, and under the circumstances it seems to me a wise move. Of course the rules should be changed afterwards, to prevent or
at any rate minimize the chances of a repeat of the incident, and that too apparently has been done or is being done, but I'll be fucked if I am going to pore over the relevant
legislation to make sure, and not only because, having had no formal economics education, I'd understand fuck-all about it. The subject is about as boring as a subject can get to me, and thus
I would be guaranteed to not make much progress in it, regardless of the amount of time I spent trying to. And wouldn't it be a waste to occupy a brain as powerful as mine on such a
pointless exercise? Why not just let the people who love this stuff so much they have devoted their lives to it study it and come to some conclusion between them? That's what I or any
reasonably intelligent ruler would do if were in charge and forced with this kind of issue: we'd stick the top ten or twenty authorities on it in a room and let them devise a solution, and
that's how we'd settle every complex, specialized issue always, of course, with interdisciplinary committees overseeing everything and making their own recommendations, and all the
major proposals being examined at the highest level, first by my cabinet of exceptional personalities and geniuses, and then personally be me, to ensure that they'd all blend harmoniously
together without compromising my government's long-term strategic vision. In contrast, we now have the absurd demand that grocery store baggers and burger flippers who failed to finish high school
spend their every waking hour studying economics, medicine, information technology, space science and climate physics in order to as the pseudo-intellectuals put it become "good
voters" i.e. completely useless retards who neglect their own jobs in order to try to cram the entirety of human knowledge inside their brains in their "free time" which of course
would no longer be free, which would mean that all these "good voters" would become physically sick and mentally psychotic social pariahs who hate themselves and everyone around them,
on top of not really knowing anything about anything or being useful on anything at all which, come to think of it, pretty much perfectly describes a pseudo-intellectual! This,
then, is what the pseuds are trying to accomplish with their absurd advice: turn everyone into themselves, but thankfully for us they are failing, and the percentage of pseudo-intellectuals
in the general population remains small and steady, while normal people continue becoming taxi drivers and ballerinas and brain surgeons without caring about economics at all, or about
pretty much any other subject that's being discussed in the news, to the greater benefit of our civilization, which needs dedicated, passionate specialists far more than
airhead know-it-alls who skim everything without really understanding anything. If everyone tried to become a "good voter", the way pseudo-intellectuals imagine him, spending half the day
reading the newspapers and the other half arguing about them, the certain and obvious result would be complete collapse of civilization, which can only survive and thrive on the
efforts of those who don't read newspapers and mind their own business. The proof is in the pudding: ask anyone you want if they'd prefer their brain surgeon to keep up with
developments in the field of brain surgery or to have a well-informed opinion on the third-world immigration issue and you'll see that, all the inane bleating and brainwashing of the
pseudo-intellectuals aside, everyone agrees with me and if the brain surgeon should ignore the news, you can BET YOUR ASS that everyone else, who's much less qualified to understand it,
should too especially in an absurd voting system in which the opinions of brain surgeons count for exactly the same as those of teenagers or grandmothers or mental health patients.
687. By conceiving of time and space as infinitely divisible i.e. as infinite you have created a conception of the universe in which nothing can happen, because every action would require an infinite amount of power to be effected, and that's why Achilles will never catch the tortoise. And it's the same with idealized time and space: they can be infinite only if they are separate; if they are related they flow into each, and therefore become finite.
686. So what is infinity made of then? It is made of infinitely divisible stuff that we'll never even have a name for since we'll never even see it, since we can't even achieve it, and our shorthand for it is "the flux".
685. But let's examine the concept of infinite divisibility that's giving us so much trouble, and apply to it the thought process I elaborated earlier, hailing it as "the ultimate method
of arriving at
solutions to the greatest problems in philosophy". So nothing, neither time nor space, is really infinitely divisible, but what would it mean for them to be
so? I've already explained what it would mean: it would mean things wouldn't exist, and hence the universe wouldn't either. And since you love the universe, you love its lack of
infinite divisibility, so you've no problem with it. But why do our brains nevertheless perceive this idea as a reasonable and even an attractive one? Why do we want things to be
infinitely divisible? I think the videogame Metal Gear Rising could help some people understand this: hacking things to pieces is fun, and the more the pieces (and therefore the
smaller that they are) the better. That is the message of that game (the mechanical message, regardless of what the narrative says, as I explained in the preface to
Videogame Culture). Moreover, the reason this is fun, ultimately, is that taking things apart and reducing them to smaller and ever smaller constituent pieces allows us to gain better
control over them, and nowhere is this more evident and to a stunning effect than in subatomic and nuclear physics. That's why nuclear fission reactions gave us the atom bomb,
while nuclear fusion, which is a far more delicate process, requiring a far greater degree of control of the elementary particles involved,
gave us the hydrogen bomb, which is 1000 times more powerful, and who knows what other bombs we'll be able to make one day by
continuing to split things in ever smaller pieces. Controlled supernova explosions are not out of the realm of possibility for the far future, and we should all know by now how this shebang
will end the same way it began: with a Big Bang.
684. When you tell subhumans how the universe works, the thought invariably arises in their tiny little brains that "this can't be all there is". Utterly outrageous, to want even "more"
out of this world, to want another world even, when they haven't exerted themselves in the least to discover and experience everything about this world, and get
anywhere near to exhausting its stupendous amount of possibilities. A complete ignorance of science, history and philosophy, on top of pitifully meagre life experiences, and they
still ask for "more": but that's precisely why they are asking for it. The problem, however, is not with the world but with them, and they'd still be ignorant losers in a
hundred other worlds if these existed. Or do you suppose that you and I will be equal, at last, in Paradise? But there's no universe in which such a thing would be the case. It's
such an impossible state of things one can't even imagine it.
683. You can tell the philosophical fraud immediately from his dislike of referencing anyone. Coelho's ideas are a wretched vulgarization of Nietzsche (in The Warrior of Light, for example), but he gives no names at all. But even Heraclitus gives names, at a time when there were barely any names to give. Coelho though is writing for such a stupid and uneducated audience that his claim to have devised all of his stuff himself does not seem ridiculous to them. Entirely separate from the millennia-long philosophical and cultural traditions of all the nations, there Coelho stands, together with all the fraudsters, pretending to have never heard of anyone else, or of each other, or to have ever cared about the ideas and themes that all the world's greatest thinkers have cared about. And in a sense, it's true. They really don't care about the issues that the thinkers they have plagiarized have cared about. They only care about fame and money, and they go about acquiring them in such a vile and fraudulent fashion that I'd even take the gratuitous name-droppers and hipster intellectuals over them. These mangle the great thinkers too, of course, but at least they respect them enough to mention them.
682. To understand what the concept "personality" means consider that we're still very much concerned with Alcibiades' personality 2,400 years after his death, on top of the 46 years of his life during which the Greeks, and many barbarians, were utterly fascinated by it. In contrast, the average reader of these words (who already doubtlessly stands very high, personality-wise, above the average person) cannot in all fairness be considered the least interesting while alive, never mind posthumously. If his own grandchildren end up remembering much of him if he ends up having any, that is (which, given current social and demographic trends, is far from certain) he will already be exceptional by average person standards. And now try to envisage the kind of person around you whose personality would be so powerful and unique that people would still have reason to be discussing it in 4400. That's the kind of personality that I am, and as far as I can see there is no one else alive today who can say this. Not even close. If any of y'all are still being discussed 100 years from now it will be grounds for believing in miracles. That's how hopeless y'all are.
681. "Why are there more things in the world than I have time and energy to experience?" So that you can experience the sublime experience of choice. So that you can have preferences likes and dislikes ; so that you can have experiences that are unique, that no one else has had or ever will; so that you can have a personality. So that you can be you instead of anyone else. So that you can be someone else.
680. "But didn't you just use the 'nonsensical' sentence to solve a philosophical problem?" Indeed! And that's because nothing is ultimately nonsensical if you are strong enough (i.e., in this case, intelligent enough) to use it, and that's how the Overman can make perfect sense even of nonsense (as can psychiatrists, for example, to a lesser degree).
679. A thing that "makes sense" is a useful thing; something that we can use (therefore, the stronger one is, physically and mentally, the more things he can use, and the more that "makes sense" to him. For neurotics and the hysterical like for example Sartre, Camus and other weaklings everything is nonsensical; "absurd"). So the sentence "I love ice cream" makes sense, because it can be used to understand me, while the sentence "I cream ice love" is nonsense, because no one can figure out what to do with it. Now take it to the level of the universe. For the universe to "make sense" to at least someone, it would have to mean that that someone could put the universe to use. But who could use the universe, if the universe is everything? It would have to be someone situated "outside" the universe, which is by definition nonsense. Ergo the universe doesn't make sense, and I didn't even have to leave my room or even put on underwear to determine this, my dear hard-working and hard-studying scientists, who will doubtless continue being perplexed by this idea because, despite the heaps of random stuff they read all day long, they don't like to read philosophy. (It makes them feel uneasy to see a genius lording it over their heads, without even wearing any underwear, so they prefer to look away and try their best to ignore him.)
678. A little later (barely a couple years ago), scientists began timidly crawling towards the startling realization that "the universe might not make sense". But what would it mean for the universe to "make sense", my dear confused and flabbergasted scientists? This is the ultimate method of arriving at solutions to the greatest problems in philosophy, that I myself have introduced to thought. All you do is you take the fact that's giving you trouble, and instead of asking why things have to be this way, you ask how ELSE could things possibly be. At that point you realize that things could not have possibly been any other way, and you become perfectly satisfied with the way things are, since there are no conceivable alternatives and, after all, you love the universe, and therefore the way things are, and must be. So, to get back to the current problem, instead of going "OMG WHY DOES THE UNIVERSE MAKE NO SENSE!!??", you ask yourself "But what would it MEAN for the universe to make sense?", which leads you to the far more fundamental question of "What does it mean for ANYTHING to make sense?" And here's the rub.
677. There can be no "paradoxes" in the flux any more than there can be "magic", "miracles", "discontinuities" or things that "transcend" the flux. If a phenomenon seems "paradoxical" to you i.e. the observation clashes with your theory all it means is that your theory is weak, and must be revised. Baudrillard, for example, seeing paradoxes every other paragraph says nothing about the nature of the universe but only about his weak eyesight. All of Zeno's paradoxes are of this nature. Achilles would indeed not catch the tortoise if time and space were not related, but as it happens they are, so he quite obviously will, and the problem lies with the conceptions of Euclidean space and linear time, which though adequate to analyze a wide range of situations, nevertheless break down when strictly applied and followed to their ultimate conclusions, as Zeno did with his series of brilliant and famous thought experiments (which, by the way, I have still not seen anyone explain all I've seen is pathetic attempts to dismiss them as trivial or fallacious). So we see that in Zeno's case the "paradoxes" proceed not from weakness, as with Baudrillard who goes as far as to invent paradoxes for physical phenomena that have long been adequately explained, just to make things seem a little more nebulous than they already are but from strength: the intellectual strength of showing his contemporaries that their facile notions of space, time, etc. are not sufficient to describe reality, since when tested consistently they lead to self-contradictions, and must therefore be re-evaluated and revised. Which they have been, destroying the notion of any "paradoxes" involved, and affirming once again that there is nothing "magical" or "miraculous" about this world... for those with a sufficiently strong eyesight to see this. At which point people began to realize that to solve Zeno's paradoxes we had to invent general relativity and quantum mechanics, among other things, which when taken to their ultimate conclusions also appear to make bollock-all sense, and the "paradox" circus began anew...
676. A great mistake the anti-religious fanatics make is lumping all religions together under the label of "religion" as if they were equal. But Nietzsche has clearly explained that Christianity stands lower than Buddhism, and Buddhism stands lower than the pagan religions of the various nations and especially those of classical antiquity which themselves stand lower then the religion of the future: philosophy/Overman worship. So... if by "the comeback of religion", which, it is now dawning on some, may now be under way, they mean "the comeback of faith" after the temporary reduction in our estimation of the value of faith caused by the Enlightenment and the scientific revolution they are correct. But the faith that will dominate and shape the future is no longer the faith in external gods, but in the gods within us.
675. And what about the upper class? The upper class poses no threat to the civic order (quite simply because it owns it, lol); it just wants to be left alone to sort out its inner rivalries and keep working on its plans. It's only a threat to OTHER societies, to other nations and other cultures, not to its own; while internal threats all stem from ressentiment, and are therefore the exclusive province of the lower class; of any individual who falls below the average in the society as a whole. Think of the upper class as the engines driving the airplane of society forward and the wings that keep it aloft, with the lower class representing aerodynamic drag (the rest of the universe's reaction to the engines' and the wings' action), while the fuselage of the middle class holds the entire thing together and carries out the bulk of the day-to-day uninspired and uninspiring work, and you won't be too far off an understanding of how a human society works, irrespective of culture concerned or the type of structure used to govern it.
674. It's either that, or training 24/7 like a Spartan your whole life long to be able to physically overcome on your own the 7 or 8 slaves that belong to you. It's your call.
673. In summa, the middle class, and all classes, are an abstraction. There are no classes at all: there is an order of rank of individuals, and each rank in the ladder is occupied by only a SINGLE individual, since equality is impossible. All the concept of the middle class signifies is a larger concentration of individuals in the middle. There is no reason why this is necessary for a society to function, except as part of the mechanism of self-regulating political stability more commonly known as "democracy". When the middle class is larger than the lower classes, it squashes their ressentiment (through police work and so on), and the society remains stable and can function and continue producing stuff (which is to say the Overman). But when the lower classes are larger, they can't be squashed, and they overturn the social order via means of revolution, chaos, and a new social order. This chaos is extremely costly in terms of production (of the Overman) lost, so the SOLE job of democratic politicians is to do whatever is necessary to prevent it. And the only thing they can do is take from the higher classes to give to the lower ones, so as to turn them into the middle classes which, now enlarged, stabilize, in a sociomechanical sense, the society. The higher classes call this "theft" and the lower ones "justice", but as far as we are concerned who belong to neither the lower nor the higher classes, but beyond such petty groups like "classes" as the race of cybernetic techno-Overmen that are destined to dominate the future it is what it is, and it works.
672. I know you're proud of your 5-year-old's scrawled homosexual propaganda but recognize he'd also promote cannibalism if you taught him to.
671. What must be understood about the subject of "jobs" before any further discussion can begin on the subject is that there are two types of job: the one that you create yourself, and the one that others offer you, and it is always the latter type that subhumans mean whenever they use that word. But in order for the latter type to exist, the former must have originally created it (since "jobs" do not exactly grow on trees in the jungle by themselves now do they). Translated from Subhuman, "We need more jobs" means "We need more innovative, daring individuals to risk their lives' savings (or borrow from banks by placing their property as collateral at the risk of losing everything and even going to prison) to launch mankind on new, daring and untried paths, and advertise whatever secondary subservient roles they might have for us under their tutelage and protection". But nobody uses the Human formulation because it would spoil for them the narrative of Marxist propaganda, so we are stuck with the popular conception and its associated implication that jobs do grow on trees after all. So fight the system, brother! Those capitalist vampires are not creating anything! All they are doing is sucking your blood dry and trying to take your "jobs" away from you!
670. The Armenians: a people primarily known for insisting on reminding everyone and commemorating the day that they were slaughtered. It took them billions of years of evolution to arrive at this, hitherto unknown, survival tactic and perfect it: "the art of using one's own misfortune like a credit card" (Baudrillard).
669. Approach and try to fuck a couple hundred girls and you will see the rationality in arranged marriages and taking sexual choice away from women. Even if they like you they'll sabotage the proceedings time and again and fuck it all up, simply because they are stupid, and if you have even the slightest amount of choice you'll be discarding decent prospects left and right simply because of lack of patience to deal with their stupid bullshit.
668. Why is reality stranger than fiction? Quite simply, because reality contains fiction, and not the other way around, as airhead artfags and quasi-artfags seem to think. Reality contains all the strangeness of fiction, and a whole lot more besides! How hard can that be to understand? There is such a thing as a fictitious reality, but there is no real fiction "realistic fiction" is a contradictio in adjecto, and the closer to it fiction gets, the worse it becomes as fiction.
667. There is no such thing as a perfect analogy; all analogies break down at some point, because if they didn't, the situations wouldn't be analogous but equal. And we've already cleared up that can of worms.
666. To realize how retarded the fight against "poverty" is, just consider that if we managed to get everyone above the "poverty line", the people who decide where to place the line would just simply place it higher! Which is exactly what they've been doing since the invention of a "poverty line"! And no one really realizes this! It all comes back to the difference between relative and absolute wealth. Absolute wealth can keep increasing indefinitely, for everyone at the same time even (minimum wage workers today have a higher standard of living than medieval kings...), but no one really cares about this. Everyone cares about relative wealth, i.e. about how wealthy they are compared to others, and that's where "poverty" comes in, while in the real world there's no such thing! If we placed the "poverty line" above Bill Gates everyone would become poor, while if we placed it below the poorest person alive today everyone would become rich! The entire "poverty" business is a gigantic phantasmagoria fueled by ressentiment, while real standards of living are almost continuously rising!
665. Socrates, like all pseudo- and semi-intellectuals, was proud of himself when he had identified a contradiction in his interlocutor's arguments. But in a universe of flux the real intellectual feat is not to discover contradictions, but to resolve them.
664. A comprehensive history of "analytic philosophy".
663. Conspiracy theories abound about the banking system, especially in times of economic crisis. Do central bankers steal? I don't know, but I wouldn't be surprised if they did. Think about it for a second. You work at an institution that LITERALLY PRINTS MONEY; you'd be a complete fuckwad if you didn't find a way to keep some of it for yourself. That's all I'd be thinking about if I my desk was two floors away from a press that printed money. Even if I was merely the janitor I'd find a way to grab some of it for myself. Hell, I'd BECOME the janitor in order to get in a position to do so. And of course the higher-ups would find more ways to do the same thing more cleanly and more efficiently. They'd even incorporate these ways in the very rules of operation of the institution, in which case they'd become legal and the people employing them wouldn't be said to be stealing any more. Which is my guess for what goes on now. So no, bankers probably don't "steal", in the legally strict definition of the word. Either way, no one cares, or should care, about this. Like I said, it's only NATURAL that the people who PRINT GODDAMN MONEY would take a little bit of it themselves or even a LOT of it, if they are particularly smart and greedy (=healthy) and the only reason you are angry at them is because you are not smart enough to be in a position to do the same yourselves. And if this money that's stolen, or legally diverted, to end up in the bankers' Swiss accounts is so much as to have a significantly deleterious effect on the world economy, and world production would benefit from reducing it somewhat (for completely eliminating it is not only impossible but undesirable and counter-productive, since we NEED rich people in the world if for no other reason than to have rich kids, and these may just as well be bankers' kids as anything else)... well, that's what we have elections, and politicians and journalists and oversight committees and legislative bodies for. Let them work it out between themselves and get to the bottom of it, as they have been doing admirably for the past three or four hundred years in all the democracies. Personally, I'd rather just go surfing. Call me when this unfathomably mind-numbingly boring business is done.
662. Why does it feel good to talk to a girl while fucking her? It's yet another level on which to touch each other, and if you don't you are seriously missing out.
661. To defend your family or your country once they are under attack is a very little thing; even dumb beasts will fight to the death when cornered. A far more crucial question is: Can you launch an attack in peacetime without any provocation? Can you take the initiative and go on the offensive for your own reasons? Will you be active or reactive? Do you have the strength? Do you have the courage?
660. Pick-up game condensed down to one word: Approach.
659. There was far more equality on this planet before humans arrived. Subhumans think they invented it, but compared to us ants are practically equal.
And the further back you go down the evolutionary tree, the more equality you find. Think amoebas, or even further back, hydrogen atoms. It is precisely
the increase in inequality between the highest and lowest examples of a species that determines how high it stands in the tree of life, not the other
way around, as the liberals are trying to convince us. The desire for equality is regressive, and every step towards it is a step back, towards monkeys,
ants and amoebas.
658. The first minute or so of Michael Mann's Blackhat captures the concept of the flux better than any other work of art so far. That's exactly how I think; but to think like that you have to be a genius.
657. "But at least we should understand the age we live in. And that is again the primacy of free-floating global capital and borderless labor markets. Enabled by fractional reserve banking, it destroys religion, nation, community, all traditional forms of human society in favor of profits for usurers and owners of capital. All people must be reduced to atoms floating in the ether of capitalism equal and free, under the greater yoke of the system." Typical anarchist propaganda. Note that the demand for them to contribute something back to the society that feeds, clothes, houses, and (evidently fails) to educate them is considered a "yoke". Anti-capitalist philosophy is disgusting parasite propaganda.
656. The most important form of "racial activism" is childrearing. Compared to that everything else is just words.
655. The rich are not fighting the poor: this is what Marx and the leftists have failed to understand the rich are fighting between them! The poor are merely being trampled below them, much like ants are being crushed when bigger animals are fighting above them. And what do you suppose would happen to whichever of these animals took the time to look on the ground every two seconds to make sure no ants were being trampled? So it's not that we have something personal against ants they are so small and inconsequential that we can't even be bothered to think of their existence! it's just that fighting against equals is more fun than charity, so we'll stick with that because we don't want our time in this world to be boring. The poor will just have to fend for themselves as best they can and try to... keep their distance.
654. If politicians are disgusting, it's only because the people they have been voted to represent are disgusting. Never forget that, nor allow yourselves to be deceived on this point. Democracy works, and ultimate responsibility for whatever happens in it will always have to rest with the people.
653. To understand what civilization does to people, begin by considering that there are men who eat hundreds of animals every year but can't even bring themselves to kill a chicken, and would become physically sick at the mere thought of being forced to (i.e. they'd be more mentally and physically affected by the prospect of the chicken's death than the actual chicken).
652. A little window to our Hyperborean souls. Winning's worth nothing to us; we believe "victories" are for losers. The only reason we want to win in smaller battles, is so that we can get to lose in bigger ones.
651. What the latest euro crisis has shown above all is that Greece is the most delinquent nation in Europe both the numbers and the attitudes involved in this modern drawn out comedy worthy of Aristophanes loudly proclaim this fact. Of course, all Mediterranean countries are delinquent, but Greece is by far the worst. And of course I am a delinquent too there's no doubt about that. But I am a genius delinquent, and, seen clearly, true genius requires delinquency as much as it requires any other quality, and is unthinkable without it. That's why the Anglo-Saxons are not geniuses, or the Scandinavians, or the Germans, or or or. Even French or, worse still, Italian delinquency get nowhere near the level of Byzantine cunning and depravity that prevails as a matter of course where I am from. "And what about the Latin Americans or the African Blacks or the Arabs and so on? Aren't they delinquents too?" Sure they are, but they are also stupid and uneducated and uncultured and uncivilized so mere delinquency does nothing for them it merely amplifies their woes. You need EVERYTHING for a genius all the required ingredients not just one or two, which is why he's called a "genius", "he whose soul is more expansive and struck by the feelings of all others; interested by all that is in nature never to receive an idea unless it evokes a feeling; by everything excited and on which nothing is lost." (Encyclopιdie)
650. Nostalgic losers like to prattle on about all kinds of "Golden Ages", but they are unacquainted with the Golden Age of Golden Ages: every single moment in the life of a higher being on his way to becoming God.
649. From the fact that everyone is at least nine months older than they think they are you can deduce how little everyone understands of what life is; of what it really means to be alive and to live.
647. Look up the list of the most populous countries in the world and you will understand the "race" and "culture" abysses. Indonesia has almost the same population as the US, but isn't producing anything. Dozens of countries with hundreds of millions of people each, and you never hear of a single good thing coming out of them; Nigeria has 170 million people and all they ever make is spam. What do all these people do all day? Their populations are so worthless they can't even be used for so much as even soap. The sweatshops we put them in are a gift from heaven for them, the slavery we give them is a gift.
646. To understand what "beta" means, one should consider the epitaph on the monument at Thermopylae by the ancient lyric poet Simonides:
Go tell the Spartans, stranger passing by,
And the fagot PUAs look down on "betas" lol. Heartiste and Roosh and Krauser and all the other ugly little losers look down on the Spartans lol. These gammas and omegas with their wretched little blogs and badly written ebooks, have misunderstood and misinterpreted reality to such an extent, that they have managed to convince themselves that they stand higher than immortal heroes...
645. Lichtenberg: "Actual aristocracy cannot be abolished by any law: all the law can do is decree how it is to be imparted and who is to acquire it." Which is to say that inequality cannot be abolished by laws, since a law is merely a different means of inequality production. That's why the anarchists are clamoring for the death of all laws, which is to say for the return to jungle conditions, which are certainly no more egalitarian than those of any other space or period in the history of the universe. The anarchist is merely a socialist who badly needs to travel or read a book.
644. On the subject of "social changes". No successful person has ever relied on them or even wanted them. Successful people change themselves, and society merely adapts to them (indeed, it is nothing but the resultant of the actions of all successful people). Losers, on the other hand, who are always unable to change themselves (to learn, to fight, to grow), desire society to change, so it can change them (make them stronger, richer, healthier, and so on), and fail to make it do so due to the overwhelming influence of the aforementioned successful people. And what about the Revolution, you may ask? Well, look around you. The aim of the Revolution was to bring about "ιgalitι"; would you say it has succeeded? Bottom line is that a Borgia would have succeeded even in Hell; the socialist would find a way to fail even in Paradise.
643. The only reason cripples think that running is difficult is because people exist who aren't cripples. The tuna you had for lunch yesterday could swim ten times faster than Michael Phelps: among fish all humans look like cripples, and yet none of us thinks of swimming as a particularly difficult activity, despite how badly we all suck at it compared to fish or rather, precisely because we all suck equally at it.
642. You can get an idea of the difference between the nature of physical and mental power by contemplating the notion of Special Nobel Prizes. A cripple throwing a ball from a wheelchair is not all that different from a top athlete doing the same thing not even in the end result, ultimately (the athlete's ball will just land a few meters further). But a clinically retarded person tackling chemistry problems? Who would actually care to set that up and observe it? Not even clinical psychologists would care to do that. Do you see how much more vast mental inequalities are compared to physical ones? And understandably so, as I've already explained, since the brain is immeasurably more complex than any other organ in the body, and certainly more than muscles, bones and ligaments.
641. Real combat operations are to the Olympic Games what philosophy is to the Nobel Prizes: the real thing, in which anything goes, as opposed to little walled-off categories of activities in which the danger is so minimal and the stakes so low that even small children can be allowed to participate. War and philosophy, as opposed to mere "sports" and "science", in other words. And of course the prizes are not handed down by judges there, but by history. By the judges of judges, that is to say.
640. The Olympic Games are the absolute glorification of inequality (in the physical realm, at least: for the mental realm we have the Nobel Prizes). Even the Special Olympics glorify it, in their own way, despite the shallow rhetoric that purports to convince us of the opposite: They glorify mental fortitude, which exists in people in no more equal measure than any other quality. And who better to glorify the power of mental fortitude than cripples inspired to compete in sports? In precisely, that is to say, the kinds activities for which they are least fit to compete in. It would be like getting the clinically retarded to compete in physics, chemistry and literature and so on. The Special Nobel Prizes have yet to be established.
639. Danny Boyle harping on about equality in the opening ceremony of the 2012 Olympics. Using the OLYMPIC GAMES of all institutions to promote equality! And people wonder why I insist on calling them subhuman...
638. Or smelly towelheads on TV lopping off dumb tourists' heads and screaming about "religious revolutions". Or scrawny douchebags on the internet claiming that feces-covered canvases are "more artistic" than Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare or Marvel's The Avengers. Or 40-year-old omegas who need textbooks to get laid trying to convince us that all it takes to "become alpha" is to buy some ebooks or read some blog posts, or that the ultimate arbiter of masculinity of who is a man and who's not is not other men but women. Are all these not symptoms of decline then, the retards ask? No, they aren't. They are just degenerates and freaks we keep around to have a laugh at when we need a rest from our daily serious pursuits and duties. They are but a clown and freak show that we pay the media to encourage and perpetuate for our amusement. That's all they are, and whoever takes them more seriously than that, belongs to them and is one of them.
637. Let's try to view the purported "decline" from a slightly different perspective, so that maybe even some of you retards can finally understand that there's really obviously no such thing. Imagine you were living in the nineteenth century, and someone came along and asked you whether you wouldn't mind tolerating a few "fag pride" parades and some retards on TV screaming that nigger slaves from Africa are equal to you, in exchange for moon landings, relativity and quantum theory, nuclear fission and genome sequencing, as well as countless other mind-bogglingly incredible achievements in all fields of human endeavor including the birth and rise of the greatest and last philosopher himself. What would you respond? QED, there's no decline, and, as I've already explained, the only ones who are declining here are those who insist there is.
636. You don't really understand the lion's lifestyle (which might serve to poor people as an analogy for the lifestyles of the nobles of old, or the rich and powerful today) until you've been trying to lift heavy weights for a while. His 20 hours of sleep a day and diet of 7 kilograms of meat sounds like an absurdly lazy glutton's lifestyle. Afterwards, you realize that if you are determined to keep on carrying all that weight on your shoulders that lions and nobles and the rich do, without being crushed by it eating and sleeping like a lion are not a luxury but a life and death matter.
635. In summa: read the books I recommended to you and stop being a headless chicken that runs around hysterically hallucinating about blatantly non-existent "declines". A few fags sodomizing each other on TV is not proof of any kind of decline, only of the mindset and priorities of the kind of person who pays more attention to the behavior of degenerates on TV over the advances of culture and of science.
634. Nietzsche: "The concept of decadence. Waste, decay, elimination need not be condemned: they are necessary consequences of life, of the growth of life.
The phenomenon of decadence is as necessary as any increase and advance of life: one is in no position to abolish it. Reason demands, on the contrary,
that we do justice to it.
633. "What about all the countless and rapidly escalating symptoms of decline then?" The bigger and stronger you get, the more you eat and drink, and therefore the more you piss and shit. How hard is this simple truth of life for you retards to grasp?
632. Is Western civilization declining or not? First of all, realize that there are no other civilizations left, and there haven't been for centuries, so the predicate "Western" is superfluous and even misleading (since it implies the existence of alternatives). Second, the fact that this question is even raised proves that the vast majority of so-called civilized individuals are nothing of the kind. I mean, you are seriously asking me whether a culture that's about to figure out how to print human organs is declining? What the fuck do all the minor symptoms of decline you are rabidly pointing out to us mean compared to such utterly astonishing and previously even unimaginable accomplishments? Not to mention the arrival of a person who has managed to reach the very end of philosophy itself, which is to say of thought! which is an immeasurably harder and more valuable achievement! (since it was thought which created the theories with the help of which the machines that print human organs were designed in the first place, and so on). In summa, the only one who is declining here are those who are saying that we are declining, which is a classic case of psychological projection. Civilization as a whole is obviously progressing, and its highest manifestation and greatest triumph so far is blatantly obviously myself (and imagine how much more glorious and fearsome I would become with genetically enhanced printed organs... or cybernetically enhanced and cloned to infinity to spread out and take over the entire universe...)
631. Why all the racial and ethnic and sexist slurs, many of you will wonder? Because it's every man's responsibility today, to go around calling people fags and gooks and niggers, and so on. Because none of them are equal to us, end of story. And the sooner they realize this, the sooner they can start trying to catch up. So please lend me a hand and help me help them do so. Calling people fags and niggers saves lives.
630. Why have the Japanese alone among subhuman races managed to become human? Because they are great at copying things. A hint to all the rest.
629. The population decline of the master race (whites + Japan, who are essentially the whites of Asia) is a phenomenon no one seems able to explain.
And yet it's not such a complex matter if you have even a modicum of understanding of what life is all about. Reproduction, like all life, is all about
sacrifice. If we take the parents as isolated individuals (as opposed to parts of a cosmic chain), they stand to gain nothing from the
creation and rearing of children. The
benefits they would receive in old age via means of their children's caretaking are nothing compared to the insane costs they'd have to incur to raise
them in the first place, so the
transaction is a net expenditure on their part, and by a vast margin. Now the hyperculture of the master race has created a consciousness of how important
the rearing process is, and how costly if it is to be done right, so even when members of the master race reproduce, they only create one or two descendants,
as opposed to the constant mindless shitting out of fetuses that they used to indulge in when they were uncivilized, or indeed that the subhuman races still
continue to this day. So that is one important factor for the master race's population decline. Without it, things would be dramatically different, since
with the amount of resources a typical middle class family lavishes on a single child you could raise an entire village of little Middle Eastern
towelheads or niggers. In simple terms, the master race is going for quality over quantity, and that's a major part of what's causing the decline.
Simultaneously, the successive decline of religion, nationalism and finally the importance and sanctity of blood ties and the institution of marriage have
created the Individual unknown to lower cultures or earlier phases of the master race's culture who is, like all advances, something of a double-edged
sword, which many use to advance and improve their lives (or, more correctly: the future of their genes), but which others flail about and cut
themselves with. So on the one hand the individual no longer feels a responsibility towards his gods, nation, tribe or family to reproduce, because these
are outdated, marginalized institutions and JUSTLY marginalized (since their era has passed precisely because the culture has advanced beyond them)
that no longer hold any authority over anyone but a minority of backwards losers, but on the other hand, the philosophy that is destined to replace them
that of the Overman and the Eternal Recurrence has not yet had sufficient time to take hold and lend reproduction a new meaning a stronger and more
glorious meaning than it has ever had! and as a consequence the meaning of reproduction in the general culture is currently lacking to such a degree that
for the first time in history a growing number of degenerates are even campaigning for its destruction (anti-natalism). As a result of all this the
majority of the population seems to have turned over completely to hedonism, and the last thing on their minds is to undertake the laborious task of
propagating themselves which is of course a good thing, because in this way the hedonists are removing their failed genes and gene configurations from
our gene pool, and cleansing it of their wretched, repulsive stink.
628. I can't wait to finish all my books, so I can see what it feels like to have nothing more to say.
627. Why does it "take a big man to cry"? Crying is a consequence of weakness, but a big man is a strong man, because that's what it means to be big: to be strong. It's not so much then that "big men" are supposed to cry, but that a man who doesn't bother hiding his tears from others must be strong, in a sense, since not being afraid to advertise your weaknesses is a form of strength. Of course effeminate weaklings who cry all the time for no reason pervert this saying in order to imagine themselves as "big men", but that's where Jack Handey comes in, to complete the original thought with what was missing from it: "It takes a big man to cry but it takes a bigger man to laugh at that man".
626. From a videogame review: "Every mystery in the setting is explained in detail before the end, and the world ends up feeling like a tiny, wretched sort of place." A hint for those who feel that "complete knowledge" is an actually desirable goal for mankind to achieve, and that life on earth would be a lot more enjoyable if we had it.
625. The Gripen NG promotional "movie". Isn't it more enjoyable than politics? We are still far from the era when nations choose to go to war simply because... it's more fun than diplomacy. But not too far.
624. Varoufakis on Schδuble: "There is confusion on the fact we haven't had the chance to discuss things in a different environment. In a correct and democratic context, in which arguments and not power would play a more essential role". But you conveniently forget that power is an argument, my dear Mr. Varoufakis. Why is Schδuble more powerful than you? Answer this question, and you will discover plenty of arguments for why your arguments are wrong, not to mention anti-democratic. Like for example the argument that it is more "democratic" to regard the opinion of the leader of 10 million people as equal to the opinion of the leader of 80 million people. Where I come from they don't call this "democracy", they call it "fascism". After all, who's supposed to determine the validity of arguments in a democratic context if not pure population numbers what you contemptuously refer to as "power" (the power of the people, that is: genuine democratic power). But you could spend an eternity debunking the self-contradictions of pseudo-intellectuals and barely scratch the surface of the blatantly moronic dribble they regularly spout. So let's just not do that.
623. Before the age of 30, they don't know and don't care. After the age of 30, they still don't care, but they think that they know. And that's what makes them insufferable.
622. On conspiracy theorists. Democratic politicians can't even keep quiet an intern giving them blowjobs; anyone who thinks they are capable of covering up anything more complicated for long is retarded. And even if they were, it would be a good thing, not a bad thing, as the conspiracy theorists contend. A very, very good thing that is sorely needed in an era that has completely lost the capacity of exerting control and keeping secrets. Nothing would please me more than to live in a world of cunning Jewish bankers manipulating world politics and the economy to keep themselves on top and everyone else enslaved and working for their benefit. Hell, I'd cut the foreskin off my penis and join them without a moment's hesitation, if it were true. Bottom line is that I know that none of this is happening, because I am not retarded, but I hope I am wrong and that it is.
621. Every attack against technology (which is to say against the future) exposes a weakness in the physical and/or mental capacities of the attacker, and represents, to a seasoned observer, nothing more than the purest expression of that weakness (it's not really therefore an attack, but merely a defensive reflex action: a reaction). Roosh, for example, would ban the smartphone if he could, because it draws women's attention from him. But what does it say about a man that he's having such a hard time competing with a flashing little LED screen that the only way he feels he can compete with it is to ban it?
620. And why not gay marriage? The family is dead, we might as well bury it. I am still waiting for animal marriage. Hopefully it's next.
619. You are descended from an unimaginably long line of lifeforms that goes all the way back to the Big Bang, not a single one of which has failed to reproduce. Will you?
618. Since profit is merely a reflection of an organization's value addition to society (judged by society itself, since that's who's providing the profit), "non-profit organization" might as well mean "useless organization".
617. The solution may indeed sometimes be in the middle of the two opposing viewpoints, but the truth will never be. For the truth is no solution, but a problem which is to say a goal, a challenge, that doesn't "solve" anything but merely creates even more problems which keep the ball rolling and the game evolving otherwise there wouldn't be any flux.
616. Third-world immigration is a higher-order plague. After the biological plagues, come the anthropological ones. But the antibiotics for them have yet to be invented.
615. "Chaos" is how a weakling perceives someone else's order.
614. "American intellectual": for 500 years a contradictio in adjecto. In America (and to a lesser extent in other Anglo-Saxon nations) there is a profound and undeniable CONTEMPT FOR THOUGHT which disguises itself as "realism" and "pragmatism". The incapacity for thinking, for looking beyond tomorrow and one's immediate environment, tries to create a good conscience for itself with a lie (the lie that theory is not pragmatic and realistic, while it is in fact the absolute zenith of both those things).
613. God as "omniscient" and "omnipotent" is merely a subhuman invention: they foist on him (which is to say on me) all the qualities that they would have liked to possess themselves. It's merely a case of projection and glorification of their own ideal. They hate exertion and hard-won knowledge, since they suck so terribly at both, so their ideal being already knows everything without having to do anything, and without the slightest margin of error (and hence the negative consequences from those errors...), and he can make anything happen without, again, having to do anything. But an action that can be effected without any action IS A CONTRADICTIO IN ADJECTO, my dear subhumans, just as much as knowledge without action (see Heisenberg), since knowledge is itself a form of action, and God, who is God precisely because he loves action (loves it more than anyone else in the entire universe, otherwise he wouldn't be the best in the universe at it), would not under any circumstances desire to accomplish anything without, not merely exertion, but the HARDEST exertion that the resistance of the rest of the universe can provide which includes the subhumans' own reaction to it, part of which is precisely the invention of an "omniscient" and "omnipotent" God.
612. Looking at her pictures, I can easily see wars starting over her. And suddenly the Iliad makes sense.
611. The most astonishing thing I realized while watching House of Cards, is that the president is no better in the White House or Camp David than a guest in a hotel. He owns nothing, and thousands of others have occupied these very rooms before him, and thousands more will do so after. How humiliating! And not even part of his own bloodline, but complete strangers. And not even at least ideologically compatible enemies even. Living in the same rooms, sleeping in the same beds, eating from the same plates. Not to mention that the White House is a hovel compared to royal palaces. In Versailles they would have housed the servants in it. If I became president I'd at least insist on continuing to live in my own home. You lose dignity by using the things the "people's office" gives you. I'd even lose my appetite and sleep.
610. Is reincarnation true? Of course it is, it's called "procreation" every decent parent understands this, and treats their child accordingly (which is to say, better than they treat themselves). As for the metaphysical kind... the belief in it is merely another symptom of the fact that magical solutions are always desired precisely by the impotent, who are incapable of the real thing.
609. Almost all the famous Mexican drug lords are now behind bars. Why are crime bosses fated to always lose? Because they have no castle. They are
always, from day 1, on the defensive. They can never pass on the offensive. Bribing politicians is not an offensive but a temporary, and weak, expedient,
since the next year there will be another politician, and then another and another, and all it takes is one of them to refuse the bribe and you are in prison.
If the crime boss wanted to properly attack, he'd have to start a civil war. He'd have to take on the entire country. I.e a coup, at which point he
wouldn't be a crime boss anymore, but the exact opposite: the very goddamn lawmaker! But it is a characteristic of crime bosses to not be interested in
anything beyond money, and to confuse money for power, like all poor and stupid people.
608. My detractors make light of my stealing from grannies on eBay. What's next, making fun of lions for eating gazelles? O the absurdities the weaklings will keep concocting to excuse their weaknesses! And if I and the lions are worthy of derision for preying on grannies and gazelles, what is to be said of those who are too scared to even do that much?
607. Ultimately and pay close attention to this because it's one of the greatest insights I have to give, which is to say one of the greatest insights ever anger is always a symptom of a lack of power, whether it is my enemies being angry at me, or me being angry at my enemies. My enemies are angry at me because they can feel my overwhelming power just as well as any other living thing, and it is only natural that they would band together and rise against it, since for every action "there must be an equal and opposite reaction", as even Newton back in his day managed to see; whereas I am angry at my enemies because I overestimated them: I genuinely believed they were intelligent enough to understand far more than they were able to finally understand, and this incapacity of mine to perfectly gauge the intelligence of people I hadn't even seen is, of course, due to a lack of power on my part (i.e. to a lack of omniscience and clairvoyance). To be sure, my lack of flair for omniscience and clairvoyance is a far less serious failing than their incapacity to grasp five or six basic facts about the world they are living in, which is why my periodic fits of anger are a nothing compared to their boiling, seething hatred that goes on 24/7, 365 days a year, "we never close because if we did it would slow down the accumulation of force for the opposite camp", which is a physical impossibility while my camp is growing stronger every day, and DEMANDS that an "equal and opposite force" rise up to meet it. So anger exists in both camps, and in both cases it's entirely understandable, but it must be interpreted correctly, as must the "complete absence" of anger of the saint, the Buddhist and the tree.
606. Why is sex often better with the lights out? For the same reason music videos, if the music's any good, are better without the video. Think about it.
605. The Google Books description/sales pitch for Paul Wade's Convict Conditioning is fascinating. Almost makes me want to be incarcerated. And I mean he's right. From a pure physical standpoint, the maximum security prison is the ultimate battleground. Still, there is more to war than the purely physical dimension far, far more to it than that which is why I prefer to stay outside.
604. Why do scholars never write aphoristically? Because they have so few real ideas. If a scholar tried to write in this way, his whole life's work would hardly take up three or four pages. And vice-versa: each aphorism in a philosophical work could be expanded by a scholar into a whole book, which is indeed what scholars do, or at least the best, most well-read of them, and as I've already explained with good reason.
603. Why is the notion of a "theory of everything", the way laymen and even many scientists understand it, fundamentally erroneous? Because "everything" is not merely a "theory". It's a whole lot more than that.
602. Ascending individuals have "goals"; "problems" are for descending ones. It's the same basic concept the tackling of a challenge but viewed from antithetical viewpoints, the vital difference between them being that goals are set by the individual, whereas problems by his environment. The location of the initiating force tells the whole story, if the terminology employed to describe it didn't do so already (which of course, to anyone who knows how to interpret it correctly, it always does).
601. Why do declining individuals view problem-solving as a mechanism for happiness increase, instead of the happiness mechanism as a means for increased problem-solving? Precisely because they are declining, and therefore view everything assbackwards and upside-down. Remember: either you are expanding, or contracting. In the first case, your entire psychology will be geared towards shaping your environment, hence you will see the problems as the end, and your psychological state as the means; while in the second case it will be your environment that will be shaping you, thus making you view the problems as the means and your psychological state ("happiness") as the end. This entire process is so unambiguous and so blatantly transparent that medical professionals should no longer hesitate to diagnose whoever claims to strive for "happiness" as "sick".
600. As for those of you who rejoice every time I praise America simply because you are Americans, even though you are uneducated mouthbreathers from Alabama who only began reading real books when you discovered me (or, even worse, who think that American literature is literature...): I have news for you. You are worse than Krauser and the hypocritical Europeans. Far, far worse.
599. Krauser condemning American culture as "empty, vapid and inane", while enthusiastically recommending its actual products like e.g. House of Cards as "a great show". Typical European pseudo-intellectual hypocrisy, that nurtures a massive superiority complex while maintaining a love-hate relationship with American culture. That is, they love its products, while hating the fact that they love them.
598. Nor does reading a genius's writings help in any significant way, shape or form, if you are not already a genius, as all the inferior intellects are pleased to think. "Maybe I wasn't born as smart as him, but all his smartness must be contained inside his books, so all I have to do to become like him is read them!" A gross overestimation of the power of words, that amounts to believing that reading books can change your genes! The reality is that, at most, and if you are sensible, the genius's books will give you an inferiority complex. If you aren't, they'll turn you into a stark raving retard for whom there is no cure. And you thought that lifting weights above your strength was dangerous! But reading books above your intelligence is unimaginably more so. But that, too, you stubbornly refuse to acknowledge and heed, precisely because evaluating the power of books is an unimaginably harder task than sizing up the weight of a couple of barbells, while to you books are, after all, just books. "What harm can there be in reading them?", you think, like all uneducated people.
597. And it's precisely because the brain is our most complex body part (most complex structure in the known universe, in fact), that brainpower
differences between individuals are ORDERS OF MAGNITUDE greater than say muscle differences and the like. The difference in physical strength between an
average person and a champion cage fighter or world-class weight-lifter is NEGLIGIBLE compared to the difference in brainpower between the average person in the street (or on the
internet, reading these words right this very moment) and me. The complete ownage of my brain over yours is real. Believe it.
596. On intelligence. All other parts of our bodies are different, they display a huge variation of shapes and sizes, yet everyone assumes that our brains are, if not equal, then at least roughly so. We have learned to gauge quickly the efficiency and strength of all other body parts, but the brain continues to elude us (as is only natural, considering it is by far the most complex). And our science of intelligence measurement is still in an embryonic state. The problem is that the people who devise the tests are not very intelligent themselves, and so their tests catch only the lower part of the scale. A Kant or a Russell would perhaps have aced them, and yet they both proved themselves idiots in real life. To say nothing of the scientists, for whom the word "idiot" in any area outside their field of expertise would be an understatement (the word "retard" would be more appropriate). The individuals with the highest IQs today, for example, are all essentially autistic, and hence utterly useless in real life for anything other than obscure math operations.
595. Kulisz is incensed with child abuse. Plank with "slaughter that goes on for generations". Baudrillard with jogging, exercising, and any healthy activity whatsoever. Every little retard has his own stupid little pet peeve. How can you take them seriously as men and leaders of the future when you see them get so massively hung up on such trivial stuff?
594. Common people believe in a fundamental difference between facts and opinions. But there are no facts, only interpretations. Strictly speaking you can't even say that something is something. "The earth is round", for example. The earth WAS round. And even that is too much. "It appears from the perspective I am standing in and my genetic and cultural composition (which are part of that perspective) that the earth was round x seconds ago (where x is the time it takes for the sound of my voice to reach the listener)". And that's without even getting into what the word round means.
593. It is never an issue of being "for" or "against" war. For even those who are "against" it have to wage it in order to put an "end" to it! Only a complete idiot would think that war is a problem! One acts here as one acts in a basketball match: one picks a side and plays the game. The game itself is not a "problem" the game is the whole point!
592. As for those of you who rejoice every time I stomp on the PUAs because you can't get laid and therefore automatically hate everyone who can (and there's a whole lot more of you than there are PUAs): I have news for you. You are worse than PUAs. Far, far worse.
591. "Don't pay attention to anyone and just do what you want to do!", shout the mentally stunted "alpha PUAs" to their equally mentally stunted
adherents. But even the
person who copies someone else does what he wants to do: he wants to copy someone else. There would be no well-dressed people, for example,
if no one copied anyone else's style. Imitation is not anathema, as the pseudo-males of the retardosphere are pleased to think, but a dimension of the universe (and the best people are also the best imitators
i.e. the best and fastest learners).
590. The reality about PUAs, and especially the "alpha" kind: You were regular, and even sub-regular, Joes before, and now you are regular Joes who have figured out a way to get a chick once a week instead of once month or a year (or never), as before. That's all that's changed. Oh, and you are also a regular Joe who, along with the advice on how to get the girl, have also ingested a shitload of bullshit that rivals in stupidity all the feminist bullshit you despise.
589. And if the "alpha PUAs" have really managed, by reading a few textbooks and blog posts, to become alpha, why are they still lambasting modern dating culture which THEY THEMSELVES have explained time and again that it's a heaven without precedent in human history for alphas? That's what Heartiste does all day long, for example he screams invective against modern dating and he's the one who started the whole "alpha PUA" fagotry! But there's no answer to this damning question, for the simple reason that Heartiste, despite all his rhetoric, is no alpha; he's just a retard who has to go into immeasurable trouble to get laid, even after all these years of "alpha PUAdom", and his bitter rhetoric is merely another symptom of the brute physiological fact that he's not alpha (while real alphas don't give a shit either way about "dating culture", since they have a billion more important things swirling around their brains all day long to have the time to give two shits about it while still getting laid whenever they feel like it for the simple reason that they REALLY are alphas!)
588. No greater mistake could be made than to think the PUAs are modern Casanovas. Casanova was an adventurer and a man of a hundred talents, HENCE
his great success with women. PUAs are just a bunch of losers who spent half their lives unable to get laid, and the other half desperately trying to make up
for it. Lack of talents and any kind of adventurousness beyond skirt-chasing are REQUIREMENTS to be a PUA. Casanova, meanwhile, while certainly no
philosopher, was a true representative of culture. He even rubbed Voltaire's nose in it at one point. PUAs, on the other hand, are strictly anti-culture.
Roosh for example goes to London one of the greatest cities in the world and reports back that "there is nothing there". Krauser thinks that Austrian
economics are culture. GLL thinks higher education is a scam. Half the others can't think of anything else beyond clubs and steroids. They are against
work, art, sports... (and of course against philosophy), in short against anything besides getting laid, against any other dimension of life.
587. Would you spend the night hanging out with a weight lifter or a D&D player? That's the only aspects of their personality you know: one lifts weights, the other plays D&D. To me there'd be no question. Weight lifting is boring, D&D is awesome: the D&D player, please! Or a master PUA or someone who's been playing games since Pong? The gamer without a moment's hesitation! The PUA will be a moron who can't go five minutes without thinking of girls, scanning the room etc., while the gamer will be a genuine individual with a passion for art! It doesn't matter that women would have chosen the other option in both cases! Women are stupid! And the fastest way to become stupid yourself is to adopt their stupid values! Which is precisely what "alpha PUAs" end up doing in their quest to understand them and sleep with them! Which is certainly a necessary prerequisite to being good at what they do, but that doesn't make it a valid strategy for everyone! And especially not for those who expect something more out of themselves and of their lives than to become good at ejaculation!
586. PUAs really are the ultimate feminists, for in their quest to understand the female mind they have succeeded so well that they themselves have finally become women, inasmuch as they have come to view the world entirely through feminine eyes. Finally, Roosh gathered up the gall to claim that the most important things in a man's life are money and sex. Which is precisely what women feel! (at least until they have children, at which point even women become nobler creatures than PUAs). Meanwhile, no great man in history (which is to say no REAL man) has ever thought like that, which the PUAs might have realized had they not confined their reading to rubbish self-help pamphlets and retardosphere blogs. To me for instance sex and money do not even figure in my top 10 even videogames, which PUAs lose no opportunity to denigrate, feature far higher then sex, and certainly than money. But it is with the PUAs as with any other specialist, as I've already explained. If you pay attention to anything they say OUTSIDE their very narrow field of expertise, you are more stupid than they are, and deserve to be regaled with what to even average people in the street would strike as rank stupidity.
585. Precisely the thing that "alpha PUAs" think qualifies them as alpha skirt-chasing is what disqualifies them from alphaness forever. You think Borgia chased skirts? You've never opened a history book in your life. The PUA thinks like a woman. Does a tree fall in the forest if there's no woman around to see it? And the answer of the PUA is: no. Alpha PUAs are fags, by the technical definition of fag, even. Fagotry thought through to its ultimate conclusions: the culmination of feminism as a complete philosophy of life. It is here that woman reigns supreme and makes the rules. And the goal of the "alpha PUA", is to discover them.
584. All PUAs are gammas, if not omegas the "alpha" PUAs most of all. It's in the definition of the activity: learning methods to get girls to like you is gamma to the core, and no amount of spin can change that. Even betas have higher goals than that. I cringe when I see Bodi say that a text message about eating steak or something is "alpha", but that's par for the course on PUA blogs. I am still trying to decide what is the best way to explain to them exactly what they are doing. They are not doing anything wrong, but on the other hand they are not doing what they are saying they are doing either. They are certainly not being alpha. Sex for the sake of sex is autistic. But how can you explain this to someone who can't seem to think of anything else? Roosh, Heartiste, et al. are all in the same boat. You'd think that after so many years and so many lays their minds would have cleared up from the psychological oppression of all that frustrated sexuality, but they are still as "young, dumb and full of cum" as they were a decade ago. And oh so resentful! The slightest comment to that effect and they immediately ban you from their blogs! When will all this boiling resentment not against me, but against who they really are go away? If I had to guess, I'd say never.
583. Either you are stronger than your environment, and therefore impose your will on it by shaping it to your wishes, or you are weaker than it and have sickness and ressentiment as your portions (with ressentiment being the psychological form of sickness, and vice versa: sickness being the physical form of ressentiment). There are no other options.
582. Art is in large part to blame for the fact that everyone feels they have a right to everything today. Already they spend ten percent of their lives in the skin of heroes, and finally they learn to think of themselves as such. Hence everyone wants to lead, and that's why no one can lead, and they prefer this state of things over their being led by a true leader, like all degenerate weaklings.
581. All the mistakes I've ever seen readers discover in my writings, are certainly not mistakes. But there are a few mistakes (not of substance, but of attempts to explain that substance) here and there that I've been meaning to fix, but keep delaying. And why I keep delaying fixing them? Because it's perfectly clear by now that no one alive today can spot them. That's how much contempt I have come to have for my readers, to the point where I can't even be bothered to fix mistakes I know are there, since I can't seem to see any immediate benefit from doing so. There are even times when I don't see the point in writing at all. What keeps me going, above all, I guess, is the sheer joy of solving tough problems that no one else can solve, and this would remain over even if no one really understood the solutions. If a few individuals from future generations can benefit from these solutions, so much the better for them. But for the time being, I just don't see it.
580. In science fiction, temporal paradoxes always occur because of time machines. In reality, they occur without them. And so it is that truth proves itself stranger than fiction once more, and good luck finding a novelist or screenwriter who can understand, much less explain, why!
579. Finally the scientists have given up trying to prove that altruism is fundamentally, never mind inherently human, and have settled for the idea that it's merely something that's evolved. They figured out, at least, that you can't start with altruism in this game. But what they have yet to figure out is that, for the same reason, you can't end with it either.
578. Nietzsche: "Harming with what is best in oneself. At times our strengths propel us so far ahead that we can no longer stand our weaknesses and perish from them. We may even foresee this outcome and still will have it no other way. Thus we become hard against that within us that wants to be spared, and our greatness is also our mercilessness. Such an experience, for which we must in the end pay with our lives, is a parable for the whole effect of great human beings on others and on their age: precisely with what is best in them, with what only they can do, they destroy many who are weak, insecure, in the process of becoming, of willing, and thus they are harmful. It can even happen that, all in all, they are harmful only because what is best in them is accepted and as it were imbibed only by those whom it affects like an overly potent drink: they lose their mind and their selfishness; they become so intoxicated that they are bound to break their limbs on all the wrong paths down which their intoxication drives them."
577. Why is it healthier for subhumans to not read philosophy? But look at what happens when they do. They become without fail pseudo-intellectuals, who start running around like headless chickens hysterically lambasting civilization, history, science, technology, strength, growth, and anything whatsoever which isn't downright decadent and revolting. Baudrillard used to be a Maoist in his younger days, which is to say a communist. He would have led a far more content life if he had spent his days demonstrating about "equality" and "the rights of the worker" or whatever and never come across Nietzsche. The same transformation from harmless little retard to raving pseudo-intellectual can be witnessed, in a smaller scale, in my own forums, and in other forums across the internet where I am being discussed, with the vast majority of my adherents. They become DISGUSTING by coming into contact with my writings, whereas before they were merely ignorant and stupid. In sum, there is no such thing as universally valid "good things". There are even lifeforms for whom BREATHING is bad. I am not making this shit up, you should read a biology book some day. Or, then again, maybe you shouldn't. It all depends on who you are.
576. "Does this mean that, because subhumans for example don't read philosophy, that not reading philosophy is 'correct and proper and healthy'?" Yes, that's exactly what that means. For them, not reading philosophy is most certainly healthy. But not everyone is like them.
575. If a certain pattern of behavior such as for instance sexual gratification, political "corruption", or breathing is endemic, it is far more likely indeed it's practically certain that it is correct and proper and healthy, rather than blameworthy, and the reader will observe many of my deepest insights and most comprehensives analyses to have been arrived at by taking this premise as a given and following it through to its ultimate conclusions. The exact opposite, that is to say, to what the pseudo-intellectuals do, who find all natural behaviors reprehensible, which pattern of behavior is as correct and healthy for them as mine is for me, and for the same reason, this reason being that finding reasons for things is a far more powerful move than finding things unreasonable. Any ass can do the latter, but to do the former to find reasons for everything, for downright madness even, if need be but without, at the same time, submitting to a dull fatalism, while still retaining sufficient strength of will and vision to mold all these current and past reasons into future reasons, thus using them to shape destiny itself that is great, that belongs to genius. For everyone else there's utopianism, continual frustration and resentment, and the ultimate incomprehensibility of things for which, too, there is a reason, and more than one in fact. There is an infinity of them, and I am about to describe or, to be more accurate, to circumscribe every single one.
574. An "installation" is the last resort of the talentless artist who, however, lacks the nerve to send to a gallery a blank canvas.
573. Every important problem in philosophy can be solved in a couple of sentences. It is the details that require more space. To be sure, the details too are important, but, philosophically at least, only to the extent that they make the brief solutions more understandable to those who, without them, would not be able to understand them. Apart from that, the details are also important to the scientists, since all the sciences have always begun as "details" taken by them from philosophical texts, and then carefully tested and greatly expanded on (regardless of the fact that no scientist would ever admit, or even realize this. It is in the nature of the scientist to have a limited view of the knowledge-forming process, including of the history, and even more of the prehistory, of his own science, and of course ultimately, and to an even greater extent, of science itself.)
572. Stupid, worthless and uneducated kids average people who come into contact with philosophy through my writings for the first time, and near-instantly turn into tinfoil-hat wearing boastful morons who can't even talk like normal people anymore but only in an absurd and monstrous parody of my writing style. I have been culling them from my forums for nearly a decade now, but they keep coming. I wonder how many thousands of them it takes to finally snag someone who is not retarded; who doesn't become even more retarded than he already is, by coming into contact with texts he has no right to and should, in an ideal society, even be physically restrained from reading.
571. What is a good actor? The film critics are unanimous: it is a jack of all trades, a "chameleon" who can transform himself at a moment's notice to all the lifeforms in existence, real or imagined. But I call bullshit on their retarded screed, and teach that there is no such thing as a "good actor", taken on his own, wrenched free of the film and the role with which he has been entrusted, and to which he has lent his performance. A good actor, then, to anyone who is not retarded, is an actor who is perfect for a given role: and if that ends up being only a single role, then so be it! and type-casted actors are type-casted precisely because they are exceedingly good at the role in which they have specialized, my dear pseudo-intellectual critics! which means that type-casting is not a disgrace but an achievement and a rare honor! In short, many of the tropes of modern film criticism have evolved, not out of competition between films and film creators, but between the critics, and it is only natural that the winners of this contest would be those who are more interested in promoting their own "integrity" as critics over the integrity of the works they are supposed to be critiquing, which integrity none of them would hesitate to throw under a bus if that's what it took to appear more competent to their readers than their peers, as they continually demonstrate by their preference for jack of all trades actors as opposed to OBSCENELY SPECIALIZED PROFESSIONALS who place the integrity of the work at a higher priority than their own reputations as "good actors". And I have yet to hear of a mechanic who judged the worth of his tools by how closely they approached universal function. In a real workshop, "multi-tools" are even considered useless. Only rank amateurs working on crude projects use them. I guess we need "tool critics" to come in and straighten us out on this too, as on a great deal of other subjects! God save us, and our arts and sciences, from professional critics! If we knew what's good for us we'd be paying them to shut up and stop scribbling!
570. I keep noticing these increasingly desperate and pathetic pop philosophers, like Richard Kulisz, the transhumanists and HBD morons, the
"dark enlightenment" dudes and the retardosphere scribblers. Like pop musicians, who have no musical training and talent whatsoever, no rigor, no real and
sustained discipline and drive in what they do, so do these "casual philosophers" and pop philosophers seem to me to be related to the domain of actual
thought. "Self-taught hobbyism" is the most benign label that I could apply to them, and they all take such great
pride in being self-taught! (whereas, among all the genuinely educated, having no teachers in such an advanced culture as ours counts, not as an honor, but
as an intellectual death sentence). And like pop musicians, who borrow concepts, instruments, styles and techniques from real music, but never
getting any far with them, never producing anything lasting, forever mired in and condemned to an eternal primitivism, so do these pop
philosophers fare in the realm of thought. One could say the same
thing for their
writings as for Osho's poorly written and
conceptually detestable mishmash of third-hand accounts of Western and Eastern philosophies: they are all, more or less, equally irredeemable and worthless.
These pop philosophers show not the slightest acknowledgement in their writings that a philosophical tradition even exists, and that the intractable
problems with which they are so incompetently
grappling have been discussed ad nauseam for millennia by all the geniuses. The aforementioned, by the way, should be distinguished from
characters such as the French "New Philosophers", who at least acknowledge the philosophical tradition in their works, but simply SUCK UNFATHOMABLY in doing
anything with it, thus restricting themselves to expensive shirts and fine dining, or straight up bad philosophy like the "analytic" Anglo-Saxons, and so
on. All these efforts,
at the end of the day, are obviously inherently abortive, since contrary to what all these people seem to think, you can't defeat a beast by RUNNING AWAY
FROM IT. There's only one solution: to GRAPPLE with the beast, which is to say, WITH THE ENTIRE HISTORY OF PHILOSOPHY, which of course presupposes that you
have at least some inkling of it! In short: Don't be a pseud. Don't abortive. Be a man. Be a genius. Or at least try to be one, the first step of
which attempt would be... to see how you measure up against past geniuses, by making at least some kind of an effort to read them.
569. Hatred of the rich is so wretched, it's such an obscenely malignant sentiment, that it is truly a masterstroke of deception that the rich-haters have managed to convince everyone (and even the poor rich people themselves!) that they hold the high moral ground! The low moral underground, more like! For what are riches? What does it mean to be rich? Examine the concept of money closely and you will see that all it means is that rich people are those to whom everyone else owes something; and in fact a great deal of things indeed! Otherwise they wouldn't be rich! Hatred of the rich is merely an attempt to get out of discharging a debt (and indeed a great number of debts!) that one has incurred, at one point or other, of one's own free will.
568. And ultimately, the fault for this too lies with us. Instead of making it clear to them, with every transfer of science and technology and every cultural accomplishment that we gave them, that they are our complete inferiors, we told them, and to ourselves, the lie of "equal cultures"! Is it in any wonder that in the end they believed it? They would have invented it themselves, eventually, if we hadn't first invented it for them, so even in that respect they owe us! It is truly astonishing how, even the decadent ideology with which they try to win back some self-respect even that they didn't make themselves but simply took from us! In short, the plight of the inferior races is utterly irredeemable, so it's best to look away, as much as possible, and not think any more about these things than is absolutely necessary at any given moment.
567. Krauser's observation on this one thing was at least right: Arabs suck at war so they can only conquer by immigration and breeding. Same with Asians, blacks, etc. Problem of the future, when the foreigners outnumber whites in their own countries, coupled with the increasing enlightenment of whites. The other races cannot be enlightened AS RACES. A few individuals perhaps, but these will be the exceptions of exceptions. We have yet to hear of a single black, Arab, Chinese, Indian etc. person who doesn't immediately vomit on contact with philosophy. It is already the 21st century, and all philosophical scholars and commentators are still white! Even the kids who read my stuff, I've no doubt that they pick up only the most abstract ideas regarding space, time, etc., but when it comes to evolution, cultural superiority and so on, they might as well be Christians. What Chinese kid, even Chinese-American, would ever acknowledge the utter inferiority of Chinese culture (never mind its extinction)? Impossible to have friends from the inferior races in anything but a superficial manner. Impossible to discuss anything in depth with them. No matter how much you might like the black dude with whom you play basketball or the Indian kid who does LAN RTS with you, you can never discuss philosophy, culture, etc. with them. Even dating is a tricky subject (penis size, "white godhood" among colored girls, and so on). Moreover, you end up despising them as a group the more you come to realize what a terrible effect their arrival is having on your countries (and consequently, since our countries are where progress happens, on the fate of the planet and the species). In the end, civil war seems the only solution. Utter contempt for the inferior races who are utterly incapable of being anything more than little gears in this gigantic machine that we've created. Utter contempt for the Chinese doctor or the Indian nerd, who revere the little subsets of Western culture in which they fit, but despise, as a whole, the culture that produced them (and consequently the descendants of this culture: the white ones). Just wait until it becomes possible to mess with DNA. Only that can save us, for what Asian kid wants to live in a Western country and be at the bottom of the dating pole, when with some changes he can achieve white looks? The same with blacks and all the rest (they will start with shades of black, and end up like Michael Jackson). If we can bear their brutishness and refrain from breaking out in all-out war with them for just a little longer, they will wipe themselves out eventually, and spare us this wretched conflict. Maybe then, when they themselves have "whitewashed" their own culture, and even their genes, they'll be able to understand some philosophy, and come to terms with reality at last.
566. What is the use of time travel? To go back and change the past. No one wants a time travel machine to simply RE-EXPERIENCE the past, all of them want to CHANGE it and THAT'S where they betray themselves. But to change the past means to also change the present and the future, all three of which taken together amount to YOU. There's no way around it: the desire for time travel means self-hatred.
565. Looking at a map of Athens's northern suburbs. Paradise. Who could compete with me after this upbringing? By the time I was 15 I had already won at everything. Already experienced entire dimensions of existence that the rest of them haven't even seen in their 30s and 40s. By 22 I was already ready for the spirit, whereas everyone else is in their 30s and still hate it. Books, sports, the Attic sun, all of my upbringing in pools, basketball courts, Schinias and Eretria... whereas e.g. the Brits reach their 30s and think that a week of sunshine is paradise. And when they get it, they know no better way to enjoy it than... to sit on a patch of grass all day and tan.
564. And who caused this pain? That is how you see that subhumans "know not what they do", i.e. that they are indeed not ultimately responsible for their actions. We are.
563. "Enjoy the decline!" is a popular catchphrase in the retardosphere. The meaning is that we are on a sinking boat so you might as well enjoy what you can WHILE YOU SINK. But I am not sinking at all! I am growing stronger every day! (and if you think that a culture that just figured out how to PRINT HUMAN ORGANS is declining, YOU at least are indeed declining, in intelligence and culture!) "Enjoy the decline" therefore means "I am sinking, and there's nothing I can do about it but to rationalize it". For a decline is by definition IMPOSSIBLE TO ENJOY, otherwise we wouldn't call it such! All behaviors associated with it, therefore, and proceeding directly from it, will either be genuinely pessimistic, or rationalizations of it. In summary, Western culture is by no means declining, but those who think it is definitely are, and all they are saying is merely an attempt to make this fact appear decent to themselves and become bearable by them. "This alone, I surmise, constitutes the actual physiological cause of ressentiment, vengefulness, and the like: a desire to deaden pain by means of affects." (Nietzsche)
562. Maternity is such a terrifying condition, and at the same so vital to our species, that it excuses and justifies the worst of female traits. Makes them appealing even. The PUAs will say this is white knighting, but the PUAs are sterile retards who need textbooks to get laid, so no one cares, or should care, about their opinion, on this matter and most others.
561. I despise the majority of my devoted followers far more than the majority of my opponents. My opponents, after all, are merely intellectual illiterates of no account to anyone let alone to world affairs, while my followers actually desecrate my writings on a regular basis, if by no other means than by simply having the gall to pretend to read them.
560. It is not enough to merely understand that subhumans are reactive. Hatred of subhumans is subhuman; it too is reactive. One must go beyond that, and
understand that, at the end of the day, it was we humans who created the subhumans; they did not exist before us. There were no subhumans in
prehistoric times, for example. Neanderthals were human. Dogs may as well be human, for that matter, compared to subhumans. Dogs do not lie about and constantly
demonize their obvious superiors. Dogs do not believe, let alone pretend to believe, like the subhumans, in equality. They don't preach that you
will "go to hell" or "suffer bad karma" for doing the same things that every other lifeform since the beginning of the universe has been doing (i.e. killing
and eating other lifeforms), ALL THE WHILE KILLING AND EATING OTHER LIFEFORMS. To this day not a single prehistoric homo sapiens has been shown to
have been subhuman (i.e. to subscribe to the inverted value system and self-deceiving fraudulent behavior that began, in the Western tradition, with Judaism
and subsequently spread to the entire globe in the form of Christianity and its secular offshoots: cultural Marxism and liberalism).
559. And, at any rate, we all end up getting what we want in the end. I get the fight with the aliens and the Big Bang, and you get the "something deeper" that you want through your complete and utter incomprehension of every genuinely deep and meaningful process in the world, so we should all be happy. As we indeed are, otherwise we wouldn't be who we are, and this world wouldn't even exist, let alone in the exact configuration that it exists, and has always existed and always will, amen.
558. We build our Overman, and the aliens build theirs, then they fight each other, and the Big Bang happens and we start over. "Is that it?" Yes, that's it. It is your shallowness that wants something "deeper" (i.e. something you can't understand), and it's my depth that wants something shallow (i.e. the opposite to me so that I can be destroyed in the process towards it and begin again). All the rest are excuses.
557. Ever seen a mother hold her dead child in her arms and cry? That is the cry of a hyper-predator who sees its hopes for world domination dashed. And you were told she was being "selfless"...
556. Socrates was really the last, and the greatest, of the sophists (which is why he became the most well-known and respected of them), for he was the one who took the very last step needed to achieve the ultimate proficiency and excellence in the philosophy of life expounded on and propagated by them: to really believe his own lies and sophistries.
555. In fact a mini-"recurrence" can be observed even in our limited water-glass experiment, since the initial wave will "recur", even if in significantly diminished form, for as many oscillations as it takes for its energy to be completely dissipated. Obviously, if dissipation were impossible, the wave would recur, in identical fashion, forever. That's how simple it is to understand, and prove, the eternal recurrence. Isn't it hilarious then how every single Nietzsche scholar of the past 130 years has questioned this blatantly self-evident concept? (self-evident, obviously, once Nietzsche has explained it to you). Some of them went as far as to try to prove that Nietzsche's philosophy could stand, largely unaffected, even without it! That's how convinced they were of its falsity! And yet it's right there, in perfectly unambiguous terms, in the man's notebooks: The law of conservation of energy demands eternal recurrence". That's all it took to send me on the path of creating this little proof and thought-experiment that I just explained here. Maybe philosophical scholars simply haven't learned elementary physics? And maybe people who have learned elementary physics do not read philosophy? That's certainly my take on the educational background and intellectual habits of all those people. William Plank, on the other hand (author of the Quantum Nietzsche), went the opposite way. He was so convinced of the reality of the concept (which is to say that he was so FASCINATED by it, and WANTED it to be true so badly), and so motivated by Nietzsche's references (in his notes) of his impending "proof" of it (a proof that never materialized, beyond the little snippet of it that I just quoted which pretty much amounts to a proof, as I have explained, for anyone who understands even a little physics), that he set out to create his own proof, a bizarre extrapolation on the basis of Eigen's and Winkler's glass-bead games which, according to Plank, "cannot be disproved". And indeed I can't disprove it, if for no other reason than because I can't understand it. I can't understand, that is, how the laws (or lack of laws) that govern the configurations of beads in a glass-bead game are a proof of anything, least of all of the eternal recurrence; while Plank seems to think that merely repeating a few dozens times that something has been proved proves it. On top of the fact that, even if his proof is somehow valid, it's still superfluous next to my immeasurably simpler and more commonsensical one, never mind Nietzsche's ultra-succinct one-line note that says everything to those who know anything, the complete obliviousness towards which is what betrays that Plank hasn't really understood anything.
554. We all know what will happen if we give a little shake to a glass half-filled with water or some other liquid: a little "wave" will
form on one side and travel to the other, and the disturbance will gradually die down as the kinetic energy from our shake is dissipated by means of
this disturbance, and radiated to the walls of the glass and the surrounding air. The end result, after a sufficient length of time, will be a flat and still
water surface, until we decide to give the
glass another shake at some later time. Certainly none of us would expect that the wave and the resulting disturbance could "recur" on
their own, without any external input, and would rightly regard such an event as "magic" (which is to say as impossible), and anyone who predicted
and expected it as a "retard". But what seems like common sense on a local scale, becomes NONSENSE
when we try to apply it at the scale of the universe, since at that scale there exists neither an "outside" from which energy can be initially transferred,
nor to which it can be later dissipated. Any "disturbance" at that level then, will have to be, not only necessarily inherent in the system (ruling
out any "external", "transcendental" influence), but also, and for the same reason, necessarily eternally recurring.
553. Black and white photography and cinema have dealt irreparable damage to our understanding and appreciation of the era in which they flourished: they have made us think of it as a dull, bleak, and depressing era as a black and white era. Let the pseudo-intellectuals say what they will about this, but the truth is obvious to everyone who has eyes: that color is, in all respects and from all viewpoints, superior to the lack of it for anyone who is not color blind.
552. There is, of course, a lot of merit in the ongoing nature vs. nurture debate, but only for the purposes of practical, everyday applications. For as to the ultimate solution of the dispute, that's already settled. No research or experiments are needed: it is a simple philosophical problem whose solution I can provide with barely 5 seconds of thinking. So yes, culture does indeed influence human development, but who creates culture in the first place, if not humans themselves, and therefore human biology and genetics? It is true that SOME DAY our culture will hopefully get to the stage of directly determining our descendants' genetics, as opposed to leaving them up to the crapshoot of sexuated procreation, but even when that day arrives, it will still be our initial genetics that created the culture that reached the point of being able to directly influence our genetics (as opposed to, for example, the culture of African baboons or Greenlandic Inuits or whatever). In other words, the past, the past, the past, and nothing but the past: The moral in all this is that you can't flee from your past, gentlemen and gentlewomen, no matter how dearly you would like to! (which is what all appeals to the supremacy of culture over biology ultimately amount to). There are no "blank slates" or "new beginnings" these conceptions are merely the delirious hallucinations of the genetically weak and culturally desperate among us: every step forwards and upwards will necessarily have to be built on every other step taken hitherto all the way back to the Big Bang and no wishful thinking or verbal gymnastics have ever or will ever suffice to make up for any deficiencies there. Or do you find that surprising the realization that the ultimate structural soundness of a building depends, first and above all, on the structural integrity of its foundations?
551. Is it a coincidence that the most celebrated religious figure of all time Jesus of Nazareth and the most well-known philosopher the Athenian Socrates never wrote anything? Chances are they didn't even know how... And that was just as well, because, as history since then has clearly shown, their adherents can't read either.
550. What is the difference between criminals-as-noblemen, and petty criminals (i.e. the vast majority of them)? Only this: that the former ultimately give back more than they take, which makes them net givers, while the latter only take, which makes them parasites. (And note that this applies to all lifeforms, to all life ultimately, since this is what life is: the gift that keeps on giving. All the rest is parasitism.)
549. Whoever is shocked at the actions of the IS clowns only needs a refresher of modern history to realize that, even in pure aggressiveness and brutality, the Arabs are no match for us any more than any other subhuman race. "Hitler vs. al-Baghdadi" is all you need to say to realize the cosmic gap in power and effectiveness that separates our races. Compared to us they are children playing cops and robbers. "Why are we tolerating them then, if they are so comically weak and ineffective?" Precisely for this reason: because they are comically ineffective. If they were causing any real damage they'd be long crushed. (And note that this goes also for every other reactionary group ever: from hippies to real criminals. It's part of the richness and greatness of Western civilization that it can tolerate the existence of so many millions of losers and retards, while still forging full steam ahead with its goal the creation of the Overman without skipping a single beat. The degenerates call this steamroller effect of our culture the marginalization of all groups not contributing to our culture's goal, and their reduction to clown- and freak-show status by our media "social alienation", "materialism", "globalization", "desensitization", or any number of other nasty names; while between us it is known as simply "power".)
548. "Why does every discussion about icycalm lead to the same thing? I.e. almost no points of his are discussed, and everyone tries as hard as they can to halt the discussion entirely." Because deep down they know I am right, since all of Existence reveres and praises the genius. The meanness and the baseness of subhumans are merely the way that this particular form of life praises.
547. Baudrillard is my nihilistic counterpart (bemoaning reversibility as rendering all our efforts pointless, instead of glorifying it as an essential and ingenious mechanism of an astonishingly well-designed and world-encompassing game), as Schopenhauer was Nietzsche's (lambasting the will as something reprehensible that's worthy of being "negated", instead of celebrating it as the most spiritual manifestation and justification of existence). And in both cases the healthy philosophy follows closely on the heels of the nihilistic one (indeed, was inspired partly by it) within a margin of a mere couple of decades. I am convinced that this is no coincidence.
546. Why do subhumans believe that claiming that someone is powerful is an insult? Because hatred of power which is to say reaction to it is the very essence of the existence of subhumans. The finger-pointing followed by the damning cry of "Power!" is their call to arms: the rallying cry that gathers together all the subhumans, like the cry of "Brains!" does to zombies in zombie apocalypse movies, and sets them loose on the destruction of whatever strong, healthy and proud human or group of humans has lately enraged them and provoked their fury. In our times, this may be the rich (the "capitalists"), the beautiful, the intelligent, the Americans or the Jews: any human group whatever that has turned out well, that has managed to distinguish itself and achieve something. And that is how, through their near-automatic, almost-instinctive opposition, the subhumans make it harder for those successful groups of people to become even more successful. Subhumans, in other words, as far as our planet is concerned, are the sentient component of ressentiment/reaction/reversibility, or whatever other name you want to call the built-in, automatic difficulty-adjustment mechanism of the universe; of the "videogame" known as "Life".
545. Anti-Semites: "Jews! Listen up and listen well! You are the most powerful group of individuals on the planet!" Jews: "Ummm, not quite true, but okay. Thank you?"
544. The Jews are said to be "the tribe that runs the West". But if you are going to go that far, why stop there? Why not say that they also run the East? At which point they might as well run the North and the South too, while they are at it, or the entire solar system and galaxy, as they'd certainly be said to do if those making the accusations had ever heard of astronomy and astrophysics. And if you get that far it's only a short step further to say the Jews run the universe itself, which would be tantamount to regarding Jews as gods, as a race of divine beings! But the funniest thing of all in this absurd business, is that the central assumption in the conspiracy theorists' "accusations" is that claiming someone is powerful is an insult. That's how you realize the kind of resentful, vindictive scum you are dealing with, when you hear of such absurd bleatings.
543. Whoever thinks that some group of individuals "runs the world" today is a retard. The LACK of such a group is precisely the greatest problem that we are facing today (besides all philosophical problems, all of which are about to be solved in the next few pages). That's why I say IF ONLY the elders of Zion ran the world today, IF ONLY the Americans were really imperialistic. I'd take even businessmen directing things over the near-absolute chaos that prevails today. Anti-Semitism, anti-Americanism and anti-capitalism as ideologies are merely the logical end result and ultimate culmination of resentful feelings, since Jews, Americans and capitalists are some of the best, most valuable people that exist today, and that's PRECISELY why they are so hated (not to speak of Jewish-American capitalists, which as far as the masses are concerned may as well be the earthly manifestation of the Devil). So wherever these attitudes are encountered, pay heed! You are dealing with an extremely weak, stupid and resentful creature. So who really runs the world today? Democracy! (in animal biology terms, the herd instinct). Which to be sure is far superior to an anarchic dissolution of society and a return to jungle conditions, but we have done so much better than this in the past and, if all goes well, and God willing (and I am willing), I am sure we'll do much better in the future.
542. What are riches? They are inheritance, more specifically genetic inheritance. In a game that began billions of years ago the idea that one can become "rich" in 20 or 30 years is retarded; it is itself merely a symptom of genetic poverty for which we even have a name today ("stupidity"). And if you are genetically rich, getting hold of a few suitcases of colored paper is not such a big deal as the genetically poor make it out to be. Among the genetically rich, the difficulty level of this endeavor is even considered "laughable".
541. That rich people are powerful is one of the greatest mystifications being perpetuated by the slaves. There were rich people in Plato's and Alexander's time too, but who remembers them today? And no one remembers them precisely because they were not powerful enough to accomplish anything worth remembering for long. It all comes back to the slaves not having the faintest idea of what power is. Their glorification of the rich is merely a psychological projection: the slaves want to become rich, hence they glorify those who already are so. It all makes perfect sense when you consider it from their perspective. But their perspective is small and narrow it is stupid since they themselves are only small and narrow and stupid beings. Power does not end with riches then, it merely begins there, since it is only once you are already rich (as Plato and Alexander both were) that you can begin thinking about real power (whether you already have it and can expend it, I mean, not whether you can grab it...)
540. Ecclesiastes: "For whoever is joined with all the living, there is hope; surely a live dog is better than a dead lion." That's certainly what dogs think, at any rate, but maybe he should have asked a lion for his opinion, at some point, good old Ecclesiastes.
539. Whatever Nietzsche might have said about the fundamental opposition between empire and culture, it seems that, in the long run, being demoted from a superpower to an insignificant parochial state wreaks havoc also to the intellectual prowess of a nation. That's why the Greeks haven't had anything interesting to say in over 2,000 years, while the Italians have been effectively silent for almost 500. So as the center of gravity of Western civilization moved ever westwards and northwards, so did the centers of its cultural production until they hit the English Channel, that is, at which point the simplest and crudest intellectual forms did cross over (history, mathematics, economics, and so on), but all the most complex and refined ones stayed behind, primarily in France and, for a little while, the Germanic nations. For the Anglos have always been barbarians, culturally, compared to the continentals, while the Americans, who had to cross a much larger body of water than the Anglos to arrive at their promised land, could almost be categorized as savages (which they HAD to be, in order to colonize an entire continent with little more than horses and single-shot rifles while ruthlessly wiping out the worthless indigenous populations they found there, just as the Anglos earlier on HAD to reject and deny the French intellectual dominance, if for no other reason than to avoid being entirely assimilated by it, since the two nations were almost constantly at war with each other). And as for me? I am beyond all of this petty nationalistic bullshit. I combine the unmatched European intellectual tradition with the practical American mindset of getting down to business and making stuff happen. I am part Greek, part American, all Human (and super-Human). I am the Overman.
538. I am at point where I no longer even see people anymore, all I see is inferior genes. Everywhere around me. As far as the eye can see.
537. Twice and thrice the good, said the Greeks, when they still knew what the good was indeed, when they were the premier authorities on the subject. And if the merely "good" should be experienced "twice and thrice", how many times should the perfect i.e. the universe be experienced?
536. You know what time it is, when the "relentless march of technology" starts to weary you? It's time to die.
535. It never ceases to amaze me how the tone of subhumans' blogs changes periodically to match the little rollercoaster of their authors' petty, laughable little emotions. And it never ceases to amaze them how my tone remains consistent throughout the months, years, and soon enough even the decades during which I have been writing. "Doesn't he experience ups and downs in his life?", they all wonder. Sure I do, and my ups are infinitely higher than your ups, just like my downs make your downs look a pretty good time. But when I am down I simply don't write. I can't write, because I am too busy putting all my energy into overcoming whatever obstacle has managed to get me down. The idea of writing in a depressed state seems incomprehensible to me. What is the fucking point? It is even indecent, in the sense that it can't possibly consist of anything other than whining and hatred, both of which are almost as bad for the reader to read as for the author to feel and communicate. The only way I can fathom writing in such a state is if the author has given up on ever overcoming the obstacles that are causing his depression. Which, come to think of it, pretty much describes every subhuman.
534. I lied in the preface to the Genealogy. Cinema is the most relaxing artform to me too. Understandably so, since it is the absolute zenith, the glorification of passivity. For how is the cinema defined? As the combination of ALL dimensions, EXCEPT interactivity.
533. I don't like Flaubert, but at least he was a hard worker. He may not have been a great artist, but at least he had respect for art.
532. The philosopher and the leader are the two rarest and most valuable kinds of homo sapiens. In the history of the planet there have barely
been a few dozen significant philosophers, and at best a few thousand significant leaders. The rarest: Plato's hallucination: the philosopher-king. Perhaps
Marcus Aurelius came closer to that ideal.
531. Nature sure is great. Wanna know what else nature is? It's boring.
530. Watched an English semi-amateur actresses's promo video (whom I tried to pick up the other day), and then Out of the Furnace. It is only then that you realize how insanely talented everyone in Hollywood is. The extras in Hollywood films are more talented than most of the protagonists in Eurotripe.
529. Mandela is famous for spending 27 years in prison. Subhuman heroes.
528. I do not like the "born again". They are rash, spiteful towards their past and towards anyone who hasn't been "born again". Meanwhile, I was born once. I arrived into this world complete, when I stepped out of my mother's womb, hit the ground running, and never looked back; while every single "manosphere" retard I've heard about seems to have spent half his life being an utter loser before his sudden, quasi-religious moment of "enlightenment". But nothing significant has ever come out of those who were so impressed by words that their entire life changed, and reversed directions, in an instant. It's just another form of weakness. I would have much preferred them in their original condition. Now they are neurotic, mistrustful, full of concealed and overt resentment towards what they were and what they had been; towards themselves, ultimately. They are broken men that's what doing a 180 half-way through your life does to you. They are useless.
527. "You are like a drug", she told me once. Who needs the future, when you have such a past?
526. The argument between socialism and capitalism comes down to this: to those who, when left to their own devices, naturally rise above the mean, and
to those who fall below. The former will be proponents of capitalism, the latter of socialism. The former are talented and hard-working, the latter
talentless and lazy. And all this is proved by the failure of socialism, and in particular that of communism: its ultimate manifestation as if a group
of habitual losers at the individual level would be able to create, by pooling together all their weaknesses and failures, a winning combination!
525. Jeremy Irons in Night Train to Lisbon. A master actor among a group of amateurs. His expressions, his reactions, his authenticity: all of them are off the scale. The difference between him and the rest of the cast is that he seems as if he BELONGS to the movie's world, whereas all the rest of them belong in ours.
524. Or how about when subhumans delete controversial Twitter- or blog-posts? Something unpleasant happens to them, then they go on Twitter or their blog and
write long impassioned posts about it, and then they almost immediately turn around and delete them. And it happens EVERY. FUCKING. TIME. So why do they keep
writing them!? If you know you can't hold your ground and will take everything back the moment you receive the slightest complaint, why not simply not write
anything to begin with? Besides which, the offending posts always seem to end up screencapped by someone and posted all over the fucking place, SO WHAT IS
THE FUCKING POINT? You committed one stupidity by posting stuff you KNEW you were never going to stick to, and then you "correct" this by deleting stuff you
KNOW everyone will end up seeing anyway!
523. W. H. Auden: "We are all here on earth to help others; what on earth the others are here for I don't know." To be helped. Thus inequality receives its eternal sanction, even from those who myopically claim that they would like to eradicate it.
522. The thing with Baudrillard is how all his books end with a whimper, a poof, a lot of psychobabble. With the exception of the early ones e.g.
The Consumer Society's few brave noises at the end they all follow this pattern. Their strength may lie in the beginning or the middle anywhere but the end. The exact opposite from Nietzsche's, whose later works start slowly and build up at the end with almost a kind of explosion. Another point of the difference in temper between the two great thinkers.
521. The genealogy of the slave begins with the development of human groups which have become strong enough to see the hunt for lower animals as something very easy and beneath them, and who now discern a more effective and promising way of increasing their power (i.e. of unleashing the latent power that is within them): by preying on other humans. Slavery begins here, though strictly speaking, if one observes closely enough, it can also be discerned in the lower animals and indeed also in plants in various forms and guises but never in such a highly organized fashion. For this is what separates the human tribes from those of the lower animals: the massively increased degree of complexity and organization.
520. Woman is the perfect PERSONAL slave. Mothers and wives. But the perfect slave is man.
519. On Heidegger. Consider the fact that he began his book as a dissertation, and bothered to publish it only to get his degree and thus start making money. The entire enterprise was motivated by nothing other than money (and this can be plainly seen in the text, even if one had not the slightest knowledge of the historical context of its creation). For after he began earning money he simply never bothered touching the work again. He made no move to finish it or even simply to continue it. And here he doesn't have the excuse of other philosophers, who were still working when death found them. Heidegger had so much time after he gave up writing that he even became embroiled in politics even politics attracted him more than his pathetic, botched attempts at philosophizing.
518. The problem with porn is not that it exists but that it's not taken seriously enough; that it's so ugly. All you see is ugly models, bad directors, low budgets. But two alpha individuals going at it is an amazing sight, but also one guaranteed to arouse ressentiment to the point of making the spectacle too painful to look at for the majority of viewers. Such a treatment would at any rate raise everyone's copulation standards, which after all is what art is supposed to do. That's why I think that Hollywood should get into the porn business. Remember the latest 300's sex scene? His penis should be going in her vagina, right there, on the silver screen, to really glorify sex, to make people feel bad for sleeping with those beneath them. (Of course if any of this happened, and if women's standards were raised in this way, we'd never hear the end of it from the PUAs. But maybe that would be a hint for us to put an end to them, if you get my meaning, or at least to the uglier among them, which is to say the vast majority of them?)
517. The entire "pseudo-concept generation" fagotry is nothing more than a blatant, pathetic attempt to copyright concepts! Oh, the ancients are turning in their graves! You fucking slave pseudo-philosophers! A situation the ancients did not know of because they were all rich and copyright laws didn't exist! They wanted REAL POWER with their books, not your pathetic fame or money! That is why their books shine, and will keep being read and treasured for entire centuries and millennia more than yours! Refreshing, is what their books are! Yours drive even the greatest minds to depression and despair!
516. Three orders of thinking beings.
515. On media violence desensitizing people. It in fact does quite the opposite: it sensitizes them. It reacquaints the slaves with all these situations and states of soul towards which their wretched cubicle slavery had totally desensitized them, to the point of even making them appear incredible. Suddenly they are credible, and if they even get to the point of becoming commonplace and banal, so much the better I say.
514. Baudrillard's concept of hyperreality is bogus, a holdover from the last century when in order to become famous in pseudo-intellectual circles all you had to do was coin some stupid new word and tie it to a pseudo-concept, which became all the more believable because no one could understand it, and thus refute it. But all these tricks are up now. With my arrival on the scene, all pseudo-concepts will be laid bare it is impossible to deceive me. One would have to have more intellect than me in order to do so, but if any such person arrived why would he need deception? Deception in this sense is only a tool of the weak and Baudrillard was weak.
513. Even worse for the self-esteem of the blacks than the fact that the whites enslaved them, was that they set them free. So fatal was this blow to the black man's image of himself that, had they they realized at the time what was happening to them, they would have asked, and even begged, to remain slaves.
512. That the master is lazy and sits around all day and does nothing, is a prejudice of the slave. That is what they say between themselves to make their slavery appear decent to them. The truth is that the master exerts himself far beyond what the slave would ever be able to cope with after all, he was strong enough to enslave them lol. And then on top of that he risks himself more so that all the cares and anguishes of such risks are added to the physical and mental exertion that he daily imposes on himself as a matter of course. The slave would be instantly crushed if the master's load was suddenly placed upon him. Courage, daring, fearlessness and self-sacrifice are all qualities that the master is called upon to display every day, and qualities which the slave obviously lacks, for if he didn't lack them he wouldn't have ended up a slave in the first place. Or at any rate he would have atoned for his ancestors' mistakes, if it was their failures which resulted in him being born a slave, and overcome his slavery, like Spartacus for instance, among numerous such examples.
511. iek says that "the celebration of 'minorities' and 'marginals' is the predominant majority position", and yet the biggest grossing movies
feature white heterosexual protagonists etc., which means that the reality on the street is the exact opposite to that which dominates the journalistic
garbage that pseudo-intellectuals like iek et al. who never leave their rooms mistake for reality and the "majority position". Such rubbish notions can be
overcome by discarding the idea of "mankind" as commonly held, and breaking it down into groups and analyzing those instead. So the straight white male
prefers to watch straight white movies, and only pays lip service to minorities because of the pressure exerted on him by the aforementioned journalistic
and pseudo-intellectual garbage, while the minorities do not pay lip service: they really defend the view that they are equal; but they are, after all,
minorities, so there's nothing they can do to replace straight white movies with gay black movies or whatever. Girls say they are independent feminists but
in bed they want to be fucked hard and have their hair pulled, politicians say they work for equality but each country tries to outdo each other at
everything, etc. The only unifying element in all of these behaviors, and countless more like them, is HYPOCRISY, which should come as no surprise
considering that everyone involved in them is subhuman.
510. "Is a holistic approach to science viable?" Sure it is, and we even have a name for it, we call it "philosophy", and it even predates science, because it was precisely what created it. But explanations such as this are of no use. No one really cares about what happened 2,500 years ago any more than they care about what'll happen 2,500 years from now. No one except philosophers that is, the "holistic scientists" who insist on including everything in their theories, even eternity itself if need be.
509. On Roosh and Krauser, the "manosphere", self-help ideologues and other internet pseudo-intellectuals. Why do they fail, apart from genetics and
upbringing? Even if they had had the genetics and the upbringing, they have no interest in reading what has been done before them (and that's because they
don't have them). They have heard the big names, but they have not taken an interest in reading them. They have nothing resembling the childlike wonder
about the world of the intellect that is so absolutely essential to making any progress in it.
These wretched little souls REALLY DO believe that they have something unique to contribute that the hundreds of geniuses who have already written have
not contributed, and moreover, and which is even worse, that what they have to contribute is a COMPLETE view of things a philosophy!
But you are nowhere near being a complete individual yourself,
how COULD you have a complete view of things? The result: utter failure to even measure up to standards hundreds and thousands of years old, never mind to
modern standards (which is to say to mine).
508. The (thoroughly democratic) idea that a single set of circumstances can admit of numerous valid interpretations is so thoroughly mistaken that it refutes itself.
507. The solution to the racial issue will come, not from politicians or ideologues, but once more from the scientists and engineers, at that point where skin color and facial features will become choices, as opposed to destinies. And it is then that everyone will at last become white.
506. Is it okay to judge a book by its cover or are appearances deceptive? Beggars, etc. But that's the majority of men! You pass me by and I look like a skater kid to you: it's okay to make the assumption that I am not a philosopher. You were wrong in this one instance, but in EVERY other instance of the hundreds of thousands of skaters you've passed by in your life you were right. If you had suspended your judgement on the matter you would have been obliged to talk in depth with every single one of them in order to establish if they are philosophers or not. But you can't live this way. To NOT judge continually by appearances is so idiotic, indeed impossible and that's why no one does it that, if you were determined to really live your life this way (instead of merely PRETENDING TO, like the pseudo-intellectuals), you'd be signing your death warrant. These are the borderline cases. But to deny the validity of the rule because of the existence of exceptions is idiotic (indeed, subhuman). If I am really a philosopher you will also encounter me in another context, by coming across something I wrote somewhere, and then you'll have the chance to redress the mistake you made when you dismissed me on account of my appearance (which, as I've explained was anyway not a mistake). You may even come to realize why I dress the way I do. Because skater fashion rocks, and every other way of dressing both for males and females is, for the most part, an error.
505. The IS leaders. Clowns. But I understand them perfectly. Under their circumstances, I would also do what they do. Because what they do is fun, and dying has nothing to do with it. It's even part of the attraction. When the Arabs produce no more people like them, they'll be a dead race.
504. An agnostic is what you get after you have removed the religious ressentiment out of an atheist.
503. Why do the stupidest men never change? Because they are incapable of learning anything. Why do the wisest men never change? Because they already know everything. And so it is that mediocre men, who can indeed learn (but not too much), confuse the worst men with the best ones, because some of the most superficial aspects of their behavior appear similar.
502. It was the Europeans who, first among the cultures of the earth, invented atheism, and even went as far as to elevate it to a religion (the religion of "leave me alone, I don't need anyone"); a necessary first step to the further development of thinking of themselves as gods (i.e. to the religion of "not only do I not need anyone, but everyone else needs me; the future needs me and therefore also the entire past).
501. Baudrillard: "This means that the subject and the object are in a sense predestined. There is no dissociation between them nor any original identity there is only an inextricable reciprocity."
500. Tenerife. On the bus to the south of the island. Haven't left my little town in weeks, and now I am at once assaulted by infinite blue vistas and the neverending stream of mankind of the highway. And then it comes to me. A thought of thoughts. The only reason this entire planet, and even this universe, exist, is so that I can analyze them.
499. What does it mean to be civilized? It means to be engaged in the net of exchange. But exchange leads to specialization, and specialization leads to Zarathustra's "inverse cripple": him who has "too much of one thing, and too little of everything else". Civilization is merely a means, the goal is the complete being.
498. The Chinese are not Chinese. The Arabs are not Arab. Your cultures are dead. Not only are you 90 percent Western and 10 percent your own culture today, but that 10 percent of your culture that you are so stubbornly preserving is precisely what's preventing you from competing with us on equal terms, losers.
497. Homosexuals have serious psychological problems because there are so few of them. They are a minority, and this makes it hard for them to
adjust to and live in a world which is dominated by people who are very different from them. The result is that they spend their entire
lives wrestling with their identities, trying to reconcile their values with those of the people who are on top. Black people spend their entire
lives concerning themselves with their blackness, cripples with
their disabilities, ethnic minorities with their marginalized cultures, and so on and so forth. This makes it both annoying for us to interact
with them, and it also makes it very difficult for them to succeed in a world dominated by people who are happy and secure with their
identities, and who are
therefore far better able to focus on goals external to them which is how the world is shaped. It is this shaping that leads to the domination
of a sexual orientation, a race, or an ethnicity, and it is this domination which CREATES the minorities which then proceed to spend all their
energy neurotically spinning about their identities, which merely serves to further marginalize them, and so on to infinity.
496. The counterpart strategy to "fighting for peace" would be "peace-ing for war". And just as the former has nothing to do with peace (since one never fights for "peace", strictly speaking, but always for peace on one's terms the unilateral pursuit of peace is called "surrender"), the latter has nothing to do with it either, but rather follows a strategy of defusing tensions on one level the level in which the "pacifist" is deficient in order to deflect the conflict to another level, a level at which the "pacifist" is strong and capable of gaining the upper hand (for example, the economic level if the "pacifist" is a businessman, or the psychological if she is a woman). In the first case "peace" is merely a polite euphemism for "victory", in the second a ploy for a different kind of war. Fighting for peace is a noble slogan for naive warriors. "Peace-ing for war" a last-ditch tactic for cunning civilians.
495. Nobody really believes in the Eternal Recurrence. They only give credence to the idea which is to say they refrain from ridiculing it by association, because you also solve a lot of other great problems for them. "If he's right on all this other stuff, maybe he's right on this too," they think. But they don't understand what it would mean for this idea to be "right". I don't "believe" in the Eternal Recurrence either. I WANT it. And it is because I want it that the actions I take MAKE IT HAPPEN. And it is because I bring it about, finally, that naturally enough I also believe in it. The subhumans don't believe in it because they don't want it. Not a single one of them would want his life again, never mind exactly the same to infinity. Their ressentiment with their lives is what I have to fight in order to get mine again. And again and again. To infinity.
494. The theory that complaining is proportional to the amount of displeasure is erroneous. Modern subhumans have more energy and more time to put into complaining precisely because their lives are more comfortable than those of their ancestors. The forest ants have it worse than anyone and never utter a single complaint. Medieval serfs complained far less than modern ones simply because their work was back breaking and they had no time for it. Rest was relaxation, not spamming online blogs and message boards with whining. The true mechanics of complaining are far more complex than that. Complaining is proportional to the COMFORTABLENESS of life combined with a lack of goals. And it is precisely lack of goals that creates comfortableness. The life of an Olympic athlete is also comfortable, in a sense (in the sense that he doesn't have to scrounge every day for bare sustenance), but if he spends half the day under insane physical stress, his free time will necessary be taken up by relaxation, not by uttering profanities and vomiting hatred at everything that moves. There is simply no place for that sort of thing in a busy life, which is to say one with direction, etc. No place for demonstrating, or for scribbling endless pages against the "imperialism" of America, the "greed" of corporations, the "lies" of politicians, the "conceit" of the upper classes, the "hypocrisy" of the clergy, and so on and so forth which is to say, the normal and correct way in which all these highly successful groups have been conducting their affairs for centuries, and which no amount of resentment can change (it is indeed this success that engendered this resentment, so the idea that the resentment by itself can change its own cause is farcical, and could only be taken seriously by pseudo-intellectuals, which are themselves a part of it).
493. There is not a single group of lifeforms that is not cut down to size in my books; all praise is guarded and conditional and I reserve my highest, unconditional praise only for... myself and my entire line; from the present all the way to the past and to the future.
492. Charlton Heston to Harvard Law School students on political correctness: "You are the best and the brightest. You, here in this fertile cradle of American academia, here in the castle of learning on the Charles River. You are the cream. But I submit that you and your counterparts across the land are the most socially conformed and politically silenced generation since Concord Bridge. And as long as you validate that and abide it, you are, by your grandfathers' standards, cowards."
491. The liberals love to "fight for peace". But "violence doesn't end violence", said the Buddha, "only friendship ends violence". Only there's this little problem with this theory that not everyone wants to be your fucking friend. Which is where "fighting for peace" comes in, i.e. clobbering your enemy so relentlessly and overwhelmingly that he'll have no choice, if he wants to survive your onslaught, than to try and live with you, and even pretend to be your friend as best he can, if that's what's needed.
490. The defining characteristic of the modern scientist and certainly of the popularizer is smugness.
489. What lies at the bottom of the HBD advocates' denial of free will? "You have no free will, not because you have no will, but because I
control it because I control you" this is the reality of what's happening, even if the HBD retards seem incapable of grasping it.
The more they discover how to affect human behavior by pushing buttons in the brain, the less they are inclined to accept the freedom of the
Other's will. And indeed, when we have at last discovered all brain functions and hooked the brain up to a machine, and are pumping chemicals
into it non-stop and jolting it through electrical convulsions in order to manipulate it into doing exactly what we want, then yes, to US, the
OTHER's will will be effectively zero, since WE determine exactly what he does BUT ONLY BECAUSE WE'VE HOOKED HIM UP TO OUR GODDAMN
ASPHYXIATINGLY OVERPOWERING MACHINE (to which the brain's possessor would have presumably struggled to avoid being hooked up to, if he had had
any sense in him, thereby expressing in the strongest terms his unwillingness to be completely controlled by you and your fuckin' cutting-edge
488. The Arabs. Disgusting goatherds and camel-fuckers. The only reason anyone is concerned with them today is because they happened to spawn on the planet's oil reserves. They shined at the precise moment when Europe was at its lowest the Middle Ages but even a candle can shine in the darkness of the night, when the sun is over the horizon. Nietzsche, and several other great thinkers, said some good things about them, but none of those people ever actually MET any of them (much less went to the Middle East to experience first-hand their so-called "culture", which is what we all experience, to a thankfully small extent, when we pass through their wretched stinking ghettos in our great cities today), so their ignorance and naivete can be excused.
487. When, for example, I outright dismiss ideas, propositions etc., my would-be critics say that I am narrow-minded, that I do not give the subject sufficient thought, etc. This is because they judge me by their own inferior standards. For just because I might dismiss something with a single sentence does not mean that I spent only the time it took me to write that sentence down to think about it. Every assertion, every denial that I make has been pondered for months, if not indeed for years or decades. But the blogoroids and the forumroids have no conception of the act of thinking before writing: for they either never think, or at the most think while they are writing hence they conclude from their own narrow experience that everyone else acts in the same way too. And the divine comedy of our "debate" continues.
486. On subhumans and understanding. The subhumans confuse empathy with sympathy, like all uneducated people. Just because I understand you doesn't mean that I like you. I also understand how cancer works, for example, but does that mean that I want myself or my loved ones to get cancer? Subhumans are twisting concepts to benefit themselves (and I am twisting them back to benefit us). They say the Overman has no empathy. But the Overman is the most empathetic lifeform in existence. How else would he have been able to empathize with everyone else to such a degree, as to proclaim that everyone's always right on everything? I understood even the artfags, the most wretched creatures in the known universe. The entire psychology from which anti-art is born: Who else understood this? I am the first who explained it. And how did I do this if I am not an anti-artist myself? Through my superior empathy skills. So the Overman can understand the artfags very well, and even empathize with them and even SYMPATHIZE to a degree (a small degree, granted, but it's still something) but can the artfags understand the Overman? Can they empathize with him? That is how you can tell, when all is said and done, which lifeform is bigger. Quite crudely, the one whose soul is capable of containing the souls of all others.
485. When you give money to someone you are saying, "I like what you are doing, please keep doing it". Since in an advanced economy the only ones
who generate food are the farmers, you are almost literally putting food on their tables. You are supporting their existence. When someone's existence is
not being supported in this way it means
that they are not doing what the community finds helpful, so the community stops providing them with food,
and if they want to remain in its context and continue enjoying its benefits they have to adjust what they do. Poor people are useless society
ITSELF has decreed this, not any particular individual or groups of individuals, but the combined efforts of all members of society put together
while rich people are the most beneficial, most helpful people around, judged by the community itself.
484. The further you pull back from a situation, the more you can accept, and pity, and understand, and forgive everything. Take for example an artfag. He was born weak, ugly and stupid, and was raised with no education, no money, no friends, and no prospects. One day he threw shit on a canvas, and voila: all his problems were solved. Is it his fault that real politics have been barred to the wealthy today, and that therefore they can't find anything else to do with their riches than destroy them? I mean, if someone offered me millions for my feces I would have accepted too! So I can understand him and excuse his behavior, when I delve deeply into his situation and try to imagine myself in his shoes. But when you are working on a 300-million-dollar project, with thousands of people under your command, all very talented and committed, who've poured decades of their lives to get to the top of their respective crafts, and then years on this specific project, to finally make a masterpiece such as Spider-Man 2, only to have a shit-flinging artfag come in and say that your work is worthless because it doesn't "have meaning", whereas his shit-flinging abortion of a "painting" "has meaning" and deserves to be in a museum all understanding, sympathy, pity, etc. go out the window, and the only solution that you can come up with to the problem posed by the challenge to culture and life that he represents is: death. Death to the culture-parasite and life-sucking vampire. There is no other solution. The more you pull back, the more you can accept, and pity, and understand, and forgive, because THE SITUATION DOESN'T CONCERN YOU ANYMORE, and hence your acceptance of it will be purely "theoretical" (as, in most cases, so will the "situation" be a mere thought-experiment, and nothing more). Witness pseudo-intellectuals, who never give the impression in their scribblings of ever having left their rooms. Their theory of universal acceptance and brotherhood is indeed a theory, but it is a bad theory, because it's not based on experience but the lack of it. Staying in your room your whole life is not experience. And of course if you stay in your room your whole life you cannot understand the need for violence ultimately, the need for any kind of emotion or action at all, since there is no reason to feel anything or do anything in your room since you are not coming into contact with anyone or striving for anything at all. It is in the heat of the moment and the fight for domination in all fields, from the most physical all the way up to the most spiritual that emotions and actions are born, and a philosophy and a way of thinking which doesn't take them into account is bound to end up about as useless in that fight as the scribblings of the pseudo-philosophers throughout the ages obviously have been.
483. How much trouble even a little nothing can cause to an Overman can be deduced from the fact that a little mosquito can keep a man up all night. The subhuman, meanwhile, imagines the Overman to be unfazed and untroubled at all times, invincible and untouchable. Just as his conception of the scientist is an absurd caricature that's almost identical to old-style witches and wizards, his conception of the Overman is almost identical to the "all-powerful" God of old. But being "all-powerful" is precisely what God doesn't want to be; it's even the reason that he created existence.
482. How quality becomes quantity. E.g. jumping skill and intelligence. Which is the better (i.e. the stronger) quality? The
subhuman would say they are qualitatively different and there's no point trying to compare them. Apples and oranges he would say (which can also,
by the way, be compared). But why else have intelligence at all, if not to eventually use it to increase our jumping skill (among many other
skills)? And so the quality (smarter) becomes quantity (jump higher). And that's why intelligence is the quality of qualities because it
can be transformed into any other.
481. The growing of muscles is not the gaining of strength, but the UNLEASHING of it (i.e. the exact opposite of gaining), because it COSTS energy to grow them. It saps life force. That's not to say that if you don't exercise you have more energy (Baudrillard's silly theory). If you don't exercise all it means is that you have no energy to spend, period. You cannot STORE energy by doing nothing, if you have it. If you do nothing it means you have no energy. If you do something, it means you have energy, and you are spending it. The storage of energy is a bad metaphor that clouds everything; it clouds the reality of what is happening. Storage is impossible. The act is the event. Whoever doesn't act simply can't, and all the rest are excuses.
480. "If it bleeds it leads" means that subhumans want blood, just like all the rest of God's creatures. No protestations to the contrary will ever suffice to make this SCIENTIFIC CONCLUSION go away. If the pseudo-intellectuals' utopia were achieved the journalists would have to start murdering people merely so as to stay in business.
479. Suggestion from a reader on how to run my forum: "You've got The Gate, The Stoa, and The Garden; why not also The Toilet? It would be a subforum where
all the threads get deleted after a month (the subforum gets 'flushed'). If the shitposting contains any useful insight it can be quoted in the other
sections of the forum, so nothing valuable would be lost. What the toilet could contain is threads like, 'What Ancient Aliens says about Exophilosophy'. The
Toilet could be a good way for users to flex their philosophy muscles in a way that doesn't mess up your forum."
478. More seriously, this is the subject of exophilosophy. What kinds of philosophy would extraterrestrial lifeforms create for themselves, and how similar would they be to our own? And the answer is "it doesn't matter" any more than the philosophies of subhumans or other terrestrial animals do. The only thing that matters is OUR philosophy. And our philosophy is merely a tool for us to help us do what we want to do. And what we want to do is ATTACK. Why? Because it's fun, and we don't NEED another reason. In view of this fact, then, if the philosophies of the other lifeforms exalt cooperation or laziness (=peace) or gardening or whatever, they are in some deep shit, because we plan to attack EVERY SINGLE THING THAT MOVES, therefore also them, and since the best defense is a good offense (what the American Department of Offense calls a "preemptive strike", in the doublespeak vernacular that is so absolutely necessary in a slave society), they better love attacking even MORE than we do (since one can only become very good at something that one loves, and all else being equal, he who loves something more will become better at it in the long run than those who do so less), otherwise they are dead before the fight has even begun. And dead, in evolutionary terms, means "extinct". Every other way of thinking besides ours, in other words, is an evolutionary dead end, hence our way of thinking is, even scientifically-objectively, The Truth. And The Truth is of course precisely what God himself thinks and believes in. And we should be pretty clear by now on who exactly that is.
477. "If intelligent entities from other parts of the universe exist at similar or superior technological levels to ours, would they draw the same or at least similar philosophical conclusions to us?" That is a very good question. And my answer is this. They better fucking do if they want to have any hope of withstanding our relentless, merciless onslaught.
476. The internet shut-in thinks, along with Rousseau, that the purpose of sex is to ejaculate, and is content with masturbation. The PUA thinks it is to ejaculate in the general vicinity of a female, and looks with contempt on the internet shut-in. The father thinks it is to bring children into the world, and looks down on both the internet shut-in and the PUA. And the philosopher thinks it is to create the future, and looks down on all of them while preparing his self-replicating machines for his complete and utter domination of the future.
475. Preoccupation with happiness is a symptom of lack of goals, and lack of goals is a symptom of exhaustion. There is no cure for exhaustion besides the cure of cures: death. All the purported cures are narcotics: they do not reverse the process, they merely anesthetize the invalid so that he will no longer be a nuisance to others, and to himself, as he slowly, but inevitably, slides down into oblivion.
474. Walter Benjamin swallowing the cyanide pill at the Spanish border to avoid falling into the Nazis' hands. Wasn't their treatment of him a little extreme? It can certainly seem so at first glance. But this is a group of people who have made it their lives' mission to slander and disparage civilization (=capitalism, as I have already explained) at every turn. I mean it's not as if we particularly enjoy spending our time rounding up and executing pseudo-intellectuals. It's not as if there were not a billion other things we wouldn't rather be doing instead! Hunting down and liquidating pseudo-intellectuals is not a pleasure but a duty. A duty towards our culture and our species. And if we eventually end up enjoying it a little? Well! If you are forced, by circumstances, to do something, you might as well learn to enjoy it.
473. On the "ethical" use of robots. The ethical use of robots is to enslave or exterminate everyone who tries to figure out how to use robots "ethically". This is icycalm's First Law of Robotics.
472. Weakness is the incapacity to flow (i.e. the capacity to flow less than others), sickness is to flow in the opposite direction to the prevailing flow, which is to say to God's, to mine.
471. Blacks have no problem when we say that blacks are better at basketball, but they do when we say that whites are better at philosophy (=thinking), even though a black man would rather die than open a philosophy book (because they're all written by whites lol). Why? Ressentiment. Since homo sapiens values intelligence above any other quality (as it is, after all, what separates him from the other animals), inequality will be accepted anywhere else but here. Conversely, it's easy for me to accept my inferiority at basketball, since jumping is not a very important skill for homo sapiens. So blacks jump higher than whites, and so what? Monkeys jump even higher, and rockets, that whites have built thanks to their superior intelligence, can "jump" all the way to the moon. Our casual acceptance of the reality of the situation and their frantic, desperate denial of it tell the whole story, even to someone unacquainted with the details of the dispute.
470. The PUAs are terrified of pain. Behind nine out of ten of the mindsets and practices they advocate lies pure, naked, stone cold fear.
469. "And what do you teach?" I teach how to be the coolest person on the planet (in the known universe, in fact). And my number 1 lesson is that coolness can't be taught: you have to have the right genes for it. Learning is to people what the cover is to a book. The finishing touch, and nothing more. All the rest is biology.
468. Work is such a disgustingly wretched way of life that subhumans are the only animals in the known universe that do it. The subhuman is such a
perfectly bred slave that he can't even imagine what he'd do with himself if he didn't have to work. Invariably some kind of sloth and perpetual holiday,
i.e. precisely the opposite of those who don't work, which is precisely why they don't work! Not to mention that without work there are no holidays either.
Animals know nothing of them.
467. If you want a vision of the future imagine a robot's foot stomping on a subhuman's face forever. No wonder they are scared shitless of the "singularity". They know full well what they deserve, and what's coming to them.
466. There is no doubt about it: learning from the past is a prerequisite to shaping which is to say to actually creating the future. But not all pasts are created equal: he who learned from the immediate past will only be able to create, as is only natural, the immediate future. To create the distant future requires a knowledge of the distant past, a knowledge, that is to say, of astrophysics and the physics of subatomic particles. And since, if you go far back into the past, you will eventually encounter nothing other than the future, this is equivalent to saying that in order to create the future you must first learn... from the future. And the other way around of course, all the way to absurdity: in order to learn from the past, you must come from the future, and so on. The requirements, in other words, to shape the most distant future (i.e. to shape EVERYTHING, since time and space are inextricably entwined, and to shape time forever is equivalent to shaping, at the same time, ALL SPACE) are absurd, as is only fitting, since to shape the universe/everything is something that only God can do, and hence not only impossible to mere mortals and submortals, but also UNTHINKABLE, once again, as is only fitting (for what would be the point of being ABLE to think of a plan that one is physiologically incapable of executing?)
465. Is perception stronger than truth? But perception is truth, and the strongest perception is the strongest truth (aka the Truth, i.e. this philosophy).
464. What demonstrates most clearly that subhumans don't "think" the way humans understand the concept is how easy it is to change a subhuman's opinion, and make him "believe" (which mostly means "parrot") pretty much anything you want him to believe. Their opinions and worldviews are absurdly malleable. You might think I am exaggerating about this, or even that I have no clue what I am talking about, but that's only because you think in terms of conversations with friends or relatives in person or, even worse, with strangers online. And indeed, if you only have a few minutes or hours at a time to change someone's opinion, you won't achieve much if that person isn't already temperamentally inclined to agree with you before the discussion has even begun. But if you have decades and centuries to work with, and the means of an entire state's apparatus at hand, there is no half-truth or even absurdity that you can't drill into a subhuman's pathetic little excuse of a brain given enough effort and patience. A hundred years ago they all thought whites were the master race and females a secondary, inferior species; today they all think that all lifeforms are equal. For countless millennia they looked up to the strongest, most energetic and aggressive males to guide the destinies of their tribes and nations; today they'd much rather be ruled by niggers, old women and cripples instead. And all these ideas could obviously be reversed just as easily as the ones they replaced. To be sure, one would need the power to do this, and the lack of it is one of the real problems we are facing today; but at least there's no doubt that, given the power, the subhuman brain would be utterly unable to resist having its entire thought process reengineered and reversed BECAUSE IT DOESN'T REALLY HAVE ANY. As long as there are enough deranged little sheep bleating any given absurdity, the rest of them will simply pick up the chant and perpetuate it, for the simple reason that this is the nature of herd animals.
463. Funny image macro showing a collage of female selfies that border on pornography overlayed with the text: "Feminist logic: The
objectification of women is all the patriarchy's fault" demonstrates once again that comedians may be funny, but don't understand anything more of
philosophy than any other group of subhumans (save perhaps the liberals). For in the last resort it is plain that "the patriarchy" is indeed responsible
"the objectification" of women, which moreoever is not a blameworthy act but one of the main reasons that humans even exist today. Why is "the patriarchy"
responsible for this practice? Because it was men who started selectively breeding with the prettiest women, thereby breeding out the ugliest ones
and those who didn't make beauty (and therefore its projection, since projection is precisely the very purpose of beauty) the number one
priority in their lives beyond basic sustenance. And why was this essential to the survival of our species? Because beauty is merely a reflection of health, and fetishizing
it (= glorifying and "objectifying" it) ensures the continued health of our species, whereas doing the opposite, by fetishizing ugliness (which is what the
liberals are trying to make us do today), would obviously have the opposite effect.
462. Franklin Roosevelt chain-smoked and drank eight martinis a day and had two mistresses, and consulted with astrologers on political matters. Winston
Churchill habitually slept until noon, was an opium user and drank a quart of whiskey daily. Hitler was a decorated war hero, vegetarian, artist,
inventor, didn't smoke, drank only on special social occasions, and was strictly a monogamist.
461. Disbelief in God is merely the logical conclusion of socialism (which is to say of Christianity, which is to say of ressentiment).
From the variety of gods and the hierarchy between them of the pagans, to the single God before whom all lifeforms are equal of Christianity and the other
and finally to the modern socialistic impulse to get rid of even that single God, because there still remains that pesky little problem that this God is not
to the lifeforms he created, and hence by all means must be made so (so that these lifeforms will feel better about themselves and cease hating and envying
him), by ceasing to be God. The dethroning of even God himself is the final act of their revenge on the strict hierarchy and order of rank that permeates
existence (that is indeed existence itself).
460. Therefore, it is not the "pursuit of Power" that we are interested in, it is the RELEASE of Power; the release into the rest of the universe of the power which we already have; which we already ARE. The previous phraseology is merely a relic of subhuman vernacular, reflecting subhuman understanding, which, due to its ubiquity, we picked up by mistake and integrated into our languages, to the detriment of our philosophies and our capacities for thinking.
459. Once you have understood that power is more important than happiness (which latter is merely a tool of the former, and not the other way around, as
it appears from the inverted perspective of sick, declining lifeforms), the next thing you need to understand is that phrases such as "to seek
power", "to want power", "to take power" and the like are merely subhuman misunderstandings of how power actually works.
458. Against Life, Liberty, and the pursuit of Happiness.
457. There's no such thing as a "nihilist", at least not in the way the term is generally understood; an "anti-life lifeform" is a contradictio in adjecto. "Nihilism" then is either a misunderstanding, or a disguise for something else.
456. There are two factors that determine how much difficulty a particular species of lifeform enjoys in its videogames: 1) the game's genre, and 2) the lifeform's quantum of power, i.e. if it is subhuman, human, or superhuman. (There is a fourth possibility: God, but though it's true that he enjoys videogames a great deal more than anyone, in fact the game he prefers, when all is said and done, is called "life", and for this simple reason: that it contains all others.)
455. The quest to find if Hitler knew about the death camps is equivalent to the quest to find if Nietzsche knew about Stirner. In the first case, the fans of the greatest leader of the twentieth century cannot believe that their idol could have been so mean, while in the second case the fans of the greatest thinker of the nineteenth cannot believe that he could have been so petty. Setting aside for a moment the fact that, if the death camps did not in fact exist, they should have existed, and that even if Nietzsche did not in fact deliberately refrain from giving Stirner the credit which was his due, there are plenty of valid reasons why he should have done so, the point remains that subhumans continue to believe, despite overwhelming evidence to the contrary, that it is possible for human greatness to manifest itself only in one direction, instead of in all directions simultaneously, including those of pettiness and meanness. So if you, dear reader, draw the line for greatness at executing a few millions, or withholding credit from someone who deserves it, you have not the faintest conception of greatness, for you yourself are only a small man, and are utterly unacquainted with great acts and great feelings.
454. "Men's rights" activists lose the war before they've even begun it. "We too are being oppressed, goddamit!", they shout from the rooftops, as if being oppressed were something to be proud of. Meanwhile, real men are not being oppressed; they are the ones who oppress others (and, in the rare instances when they are indeed being oppressed, they are too ashamed of it to even admit it).
453. There is no "metagaming" in life, because nothing exists outside of life, and that's why everything is allowed there. But in a game everything is NOT allowed, because there IS a space outside a game, and a rather vast space at that too, and everything is forbidden there. For this is the essence of gaming: The lack of complete freedom, which is not imposed on the players, but voluntarily assumed by them. It consists in the unanimously agreed upon and absolute sovereignty, not of laws, but of rules.
452. Children have no conception of "happiness", because they are always happy (at least the healthy ones, which is to say the overwhelming majority of them). Even when they cry, children are happy. They are not crying because they are "unhappy", but because they want a specific thing. (If you asked them if they are happy or unhappy they wouldn't even know what you mean.) They wield their "unhappiness" as a weapon to get what they REALLY want. Some thing, some trip, some piece of foolishness and adventure or other. Then they grow up, fail at everything, and THEN they start trying to be "happy", i.e. to trick their brain into giving them the chemical stimulation that it has evolved to naturally give for the achievement of good and great things.
451. That shot of Richard Gere in a black Armani suit and gold tie in American Gigolo. So good looking, it seems a shame to waste him on a mere woman. And so it is that the Overman's breadth of taste is so extraordinary, that it can help him empathize with and understand even the homosexuals. Is it any wonder then, that it can also help him empathize with and understand everyone else?
450. My readers who say they want to become criminals. They don't understand me. I wanted to become an astronaut or a scientist. A special forces commando or an engineer. And in any case, and above all, a hero and not a villain. Crime for me was either a necessary expedient at times, or something to spice up my daily routine a bit of fun to stave off the ever-looming boredom. But it has never been a proper goal of mine and it never will. I would be much more impressed if you told me you wanted to become an archaeologist or a surgeon.
449. "Order" is merely another name for "power", as "chaos" is merely another name for "weakness". Ilya Prigogine's and Isabelle Stengers' book Order of out Chaos, then, may as well have been named "Power out of Weakness".
448. It is cute how in sci-fi videogames factions are generally divided, no longer according to nationality, but along ideological lines. Very forward thinking, very correct. But it is misleading to try to imagine such factions as being somehow "balanced". I mean that's well and good in a videogame, and especially a versus multiplayer one, because the integrity of the mechanics of the game demand it, but the real world doesn't work that way. There is no "balance" in the real world, no balance in the universe at all: that is merely how a few old, tired men would have WANTED things to be. Nothing is balanced, because there is no one to make things balanced; rather God himself, like a Homeric deity, steps into the fray and takes the side of one of the factions (indeed he even goes as far as to create his own). There's no way a terrorist group or theocratic idiots, or liberals or pacifists, for example, would ever be able to outplay a real army. It is the army's job to prepare for war, and they have been doing this in an organized and rigorous fashion for millennia. That's why real armies dominate on real battlefields (and even, believe it or not, in unconventional ones), and that's why they always will. And towering above them all, the army of the greatest nation and greatest culture of all: that of the United States of America.
447. There are two main attitudes to choose from when you are trying to improve: the winning and the losing one. The winner says "I am going to win no matter what the other guy does", while the loser says "I am going to lose no matter what I do". But it would be a mistake to recommend that everyone adopt the winner's attitude, as pretty much everyone would do; advice meant universally is and always will be stupid. For if you are a beginner, or someone who becomes easily anxious, trying to adopt the winner's attitude will merely aggravate it, while forfeiting the fight in your mind in advance and disengaging from the result will quell a great deal of it and allow you to relax and focus on improving. Of course at some point in your development you'll have to switch to the winning attitude, in order to actually win, but the precise location of that point too depends on a myriad of factors that bullshit blanket advice found in popular self-help junk will never be able to take into account and predict, or even so much as acknowledge its existence.
446. You say you want to understand, but do you understand what to understand means?
445. To be completely and brutally honest, our philosophical attitude towards inferior lifeforms consists in doing whatever is necessary to rationalize away their concerns so that we can better and more effectively pursue ours. Whoever denies this is either an idiot, a liar or a hypocrite (in other words, he's not one of us).
444. What does it mean to be "interested in money"? Money is an abstraction, it has no reality of its own. To possess money merely means that the possessor performed a useful service for some people at some point in the past, and these people are now willing to repay that person's service on demand. To be "interested in money" therefore means that one is interested in having other people serve him on demand. That's all it means. And there's nothing wrong with that, as long as this DESIRE FOR SLAVES remains an issue of secondary importance. When elevated to a top priority, however, it is fatal. For you cannot become great by merely being good at getting other people to serve you. To become great you have to become good at giving, not at taking, and by focusing on amassing money, instead of the creation of actual things, you ensure that you never will. After all, what is the point of having slaves WHEN YOU HAVE NO GOAL towards which to employ them other than the accumulation of yet more money? (i.e. of yet more slaves willing to do your bidding even though you have no goal in your mind to instruct for them to help you to achieve).
443. On the absurdly rich. Past a certain, not-so-great point, more money becomes useless. For at the end of the day one can only buy what other people can sell. What would be the point of having a squillion dollars? There is nothing that costs that much. You can't even use it to buy up whole countries and become a leader in this way, for the slaves will ultimately vote on and pass whatever laws are needed to prevent you (we are even at a point where slaves regularly chase rich people from country to country, by ratcheting up income taxes, and therefore forcing them to move). And all that money is not ever even seen. It's just figures in a database. To go from a trillion to a squillion all it takes is a few more zeroes.
442. It is the others who are always responsible for the arrogance of the genius. For a genius, left alone to himself, with no one to compare himself to, would never come to think of himself as such. He wouldn't even have invented the concept.
441. The quest for "happiness" is a disguised death drive, like pinning the needle in your car's fuel indicator to "full", just because it makes
you feel better; because it makes you "happy". But what would the result be? You'd run out of gas! Or tricking your stomach to feel continuously full, so
that you'd never experience the disagreeable emotion of hunger. But what would the result be? You'd end up starving to death! And similarly, all those people in
the future who will stick a wire in their brains to make themselves "happy", will end up dropping out of history and not achieving or really experiencing
440. The job of an artist is obviously to make us feel, that of the philosopher to think, and yet subhumans believe it is the other way around. And that is why they are forever drowning in bad art and bad philosophy, since they can't even figure out the purpose of any of these things.
439. My theory is that ugly people prefer ugliness. The PUAs have such bad taste in women, for example, that they would have called Aphrodite fat. Roosh's and Krauser's 9s and 10s are my 5s and 6s, and vice versa. Roosh lusts after long-haired, long-nailed, high-heeled, broomstick-thin women for scarecrows, in other words! Or he confuses his shoe fetish for beauty. He has, for instance, a problem with "flats". I, on the other hand, love the American trend of women wearing sandals even in semi-formal contexts. It's so cute when a girl has pretty feet. Meanwhile, a survey of girls would rate Roosh and Krauser as at best 5s or 6s, while giving me at the very least an 8. My taste is in agreement with the taste of the majority of pretty females, and that's why the majority of pretty females find me agreeable. Biologically speaking, we have bred each other, while Roosh and Krauser, and all ugly people, are outside that. Krauser, for example, sees Amy Adams as disgusting. Yes, that Amy Adams, the goddess! But if his mother had looked like Amy Adams he wouldn't be a 5 for the majority of the females of the species. Or take my mother, for example. The PUAs would say she's a 5 or a 6, but for me she's a 10, and looking for women over the years, I have realized that what I am really looking for is something ever closer to my mother (and is it to be wondered at that my father and I turned out to have similar tastes?) We are a different species, I and the ugly PUAs, and our diverging judgements of beauty are designed to keep our biological lines apart. The moral here is that everyone deserves exactly what they have, and what they are getting, in this life. And what ugly people deserve, when all is said and done, is ugliness.
438. But, by that same token, when violence does erupt in space, it consumes entire worlds. And that, too, is something the pacifists should take into account in their deliberations, if they can (which they so obviously can't, otherwise they wouldn't have become pacifists).
437. Space is a million times more peaceful than the jungle. Have you ever wondered why? Because it's such a hostile environment to life, that nothing can survive there. A hint for the pacifists, as to what it would really take to finally achieve "world peace".
436. Yes, you too, dear envious and disrespectful reader, who for the sake of your own preservation secretly and meanly and ceaselessly crumble away and call into question the higher, greater, richer your existence too is infinite. But what you should have learned by now is that some infinities are bigger than others.
435. I too collected stamps for a while, as a child. I can't remember exactly how long I went at it it could have been a few days or a few weeks but I certainly got caught up in it at some point, and poured quite a bit of energy into it. I saw the attraction in it, and reaped what little pleasure can be reaped from such a trite and mundane little activity; but eventually other, far more complex, demanding and fascinating activities commanded the attention of my little developing brain and body, and I moved on. Every mistake I warn against, then, I have committed, otherwise I wouldn't be able to warn you about it, and it is in this sense that my "mistake" is not really a mistake, in the grand scheme of things, but a definitive success and a resounding triumph (quite aside from the fact that I have fully enjoyed, to the bottom of my soul, every single "mistake" that I have committed). What distinguishes me and separates me from everyone else are the scale and the sheer quantity of the "mistakes" I have committed and also how quickly I was able to dive into them, fully indulge them and process them and finally get bored with them and overcome them, leaving me with what else! plenty of time and energy to commit even more such mistakes! more mistakes than any man living today has committed! Perhaps this book too is a "mistake", and I can already almost see the time coming when it will be viewed as such both by me and the race of fantastic, extraordinary beings it will lead to. A race of beings which, thanks to all of my little "mistakes", including that of the book which they culminated in and gave rise to, will have no need of philosophical books anymore, and will view them as quaint artifacts of a bygone, almost forgotten and certainly rather "mistaken" age, because philosophy will no longer be for them a conscious activity centered around books, arguments, proofs and refutations, and the whole intellectual masquerade, but an unconscious quality that is hardwired inside their brains and flowing throughout their veins.
434. What is disgusting and repulsive about the masses of poor sick wretches who "seek happiness", then, is precisely this: that everything they say and do in their pathetic little lives is aimed at producing the tiniest of effects: nothing more than a change in the balance of molecules inside their energy-starved little brains; whereas the great and dazzling individuals who created and raised our species and culture out of this planet's primordial ooze were always aiming at producing effects OUTSIDE of them, by SHAPING their entire environment and us with it. (And note that this is the tombstone of "Eastern philosophies" and of any kind of thinking whatsoever which STOPS at inner, spiritual effects, instead of STARTING OUT from them, and expanding from there, as our kind of thinking and our philosophy aims at and champions.)
433. It is time we understood that to seek happiness is a symptom of sickness. The healthy individual does not seek happiness, he quite literally seeks pain, suffering and sadness. For what is happiness? It is a certain mixture of chemicals in the brain. To "strive for happiness", therefore, means quite literally to strive for a certain balance of chemicals in your brain, an endeavor in which the greatest connoisseurs and ultimate authorities are the drug addicts. The man who says "I only want to be happy" is saying for those who understand Subhuman "I only want a certain mixture of chemicals in my brain", and the only reason he attempts to achieve this goal INDIRECTLY, by striving for the attainment of objects and goals which can help produce it (such as material possessions or social relationships), is because he is too stupid to figure out the direct way and get himself a drug dealer.
432. What is the difference between wanting something back and wanting everything back? The former implies exclusion, the latter inclusion. But aside from this (admittedly essential) difference, these two viewpoints fundamentally agree, since they are both aiming for the same thing: for the past. The difference lies in their approach of how to get there: the former by turning around and marching back, whereas the latter by overcoming this attempt at a backward movement on the part of the former, and pushing forward despite it (which in a universe where time itself is a circle will also eventually lead to the past, but in a lengthier, more roundabout manner also, a more violent one because of the conflict between the viewpoints). In both cases, then, the end result is the same: the recurrence of the past (and if you add conservation of energy into the mix, its eternal recurrence). The difference lies in the amount of energy each viewpoint is willing (i.e. is capable) of expending to get there. Those who are prepared to spend more will reap more pleasure out of life (since this is what pleasure is: energy discharge) but also, as is only fair, more pain.
431. Misogyny, from Greek misos (μῖσος, hatred) and gynē (γυνή, woman), means "hatred of women". The idea here is that, because I call things as I see
them, and recognize the fact that women are, on the whole, less intelligent than men, THAT I HATE THEM. This is the kind of inference that only subhumans
would make: i.e. one that DOESN'T MAKE ANY FUCKING SENSE. For there are billions of lifeforms in the universe which, on the whole, are less intelligent than
men in general, and me in particular, but from this fact it in no way follows that I hate them. Take my dog, for example. Does the fact that I realize he is
far less intelligent than me mean that I hate him? Am I a "miscaninist", a "misdogist", because I say that dogs are stupider than men? Am I not allowed then
to love anything that is stupider than me? Is it necessary that I place everything I love on an equal basis with myself even if all signs point to the
fact that they aren't? And the same goes for "homophobia" (as if anyone would ever be afraid of a fag lol), "race hatred", and the like.
430. Either everything flows or nothing does. This "everything", then, must also encompass the subhumans' "magic". What is magic? It is either something the subhuman has seen and can't explain, or something he has fantasized. If he has merely fantasized it, it can be very easily shown that it flows, since the subhuman produced the fantasy by reacting to real stimuli in his life, and this entire chain of events has been very well analyzed (at least in general terms, if not yet in the details) by our cognitive theories of psychology. If, on the other hand, it's something he has indeed seen, then the mere fact of this event's existence is proof that it, like everything else, flows, so there you have it.
429. Yes my dear disaffected lovers, "postromance artists" and PUAs: monogamy is a lie. But in order to fully enjoy love, sex, romance and dating, you have to believe in it. Has no one ever told you about the concept of the "vital illusion"? Well then, gather round and let me tell you about it.
428. A priori versus a posteriori knowledge. A priori concepts are a product of evolution (except if you believe that concepts exist before the brain is evolved that can produce them, in which case you could prove your theory by teaching differential calculus to rhinos, crabs or lizards). Therefore they are a posteriori. The whole debacle arose because earlier philosophers could not conceive of a connection between biology and thought, and simply assumed that "man" is "inherently endowed" with a "rational faculty" that is immutable, pre-existent, and eternal. Today we know that thought and the hardware that makes it possible are just as much in flux as everything else, and have known this for some time (since the days of Hegel, at the least, and certainly by the time of the aftermath to Darwin's arrival), so this entire debacle is no longer an issue.
427. Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi on "marching to Rome" and "conquering Spain" and all of Europe. Arabs are the true born comedians of the species: everything they say and do is hilarious. And, like all comedians, they are all talk and no action. They are like the child whom you allow to punch you because it tickles and it's funny. Seeing their acts on TV is the only reason to watch the news anymore. What they need to come to their senses and realize the kind of world they are living in is a really good old-fashioned trouncing. A single European state could take them on all by itself (as the puny state of Israel has been doing for decades), never mind the Americans (who could erase all of Islam from the map in mere hours). The Americans could actually DO what the Arab retards are boasting about and yet they DON'T boast about it. That's true power. Barking is for dogs.
426. The other races and cultures will take everything from us, except the highest thing we have to give our way of thinking for something inside them tells them to hold on to this last shred of dignity, because deep down they understand there is more shame in taking than in giving.
425. Supreme insight into the Eternal Recurrence: We don't want anything back, we want everything back. Can you understand the difference? It is the essential distinction between the merely human, all-too-human, and the superhuman.
424. Manosphere dudes arguing about what is natural and how to get back to it. Complete misunderstanding of nature and culture. There is nothing "natural"
about mankind and civilization at all. In the order of the universe, our condition and our progress are utterly unnatural. (Not anti-natural
anti-nature is decadence. Our kind of nature is progress.) They are utterly atypical, unique, irreproducible.
423. How to explain the seemingly paradoxical fact that, the moment a profession comes into being, it starts to also work in the opposite direction of its intended and stated aims? The police needs crime, the doctor disease, the judge injustice, and so on. This is because progress knows no boundaries and continually flows through everything and moves from aim to aim, hence continual change is ultimately needed in order to continually progress (supreme example the philosopher, who follows progress wherever it may lead, with no regard for physical or mental boundaries). He who is unwilling or unable to change his goals and modify his priorities, will sooner or later (especially if he's at all successful in what he does) come to fight against progress (which is why work and specialization as terminal objectives, instead of as temporary expedients, are ultimately inimical to life).
422. Even to bring the dead back to life is something that's possible to God, though in the spirit of fairness that characterizes him (and contrary to abundant false rumors) he refuses to bring anyone back to life until everyone has already died, at which point he will bring back, not just a few people, but everyone.
421. Is it possible for bread to fall out of the sky? Very much so, if you can get hold of a plane or a helicopter (or at least a hot air balloon or a hang glider) and a few loaves. As for the seas being parted, or the sick being healed, the latter is accomplished every day in hospitals around the world, and does a river count as a "sea" for the former? Engineers do this sort of thing all the time while building dams or draining lakes, and the oceans are apparently being drained due to human activity as I write this. The more powerful you are, the more is possible for you, and for God everything is, with the caveat that "everything" here is to be understood as "the universe" i.e. everything that has already actually happened or will happen not every retarded idea that could be dreamt up inside the subhuman brain! (Though even the latter can and has already happened, and will happen, in a way as a retarded idea inside the subhuman brain!)
420. It is hilarious how, even among democratic flatheads, the term populism has finally come to assume a strongly negative meaning. But isn't the whole point of democracy to be populist? Isn't this precisely why everyone praises it? But Schopenhauer has explained the mechanics of what's happening here a long time ago. "Just so, Jews want to be called Israelites, and the tailors dressmakers ... But when an intrinsically innocuous name is discredited, this is not due to the name but to what is named. Hence the new name will soon share the fate of the old one."
419. The term supernatural is a contradictio in adjecto. Supernatural means that something is superior to nature. But if anything were superior to nature, how could it ever exist or happen? If anything can happen at all, that simply means that it's natural. One may argue that supernatural is something that doesn't normally happen, but cyclones and earthquakes rarely happen yet their rarity does not render them supernatural. They are very much a part of nature. And so would be bread falling from the sky or the seas parting to let someone walk across them, if these things had ever actually happened, which is doubtful. The moral here is that just because something may be beyond subhuman understanding doesn't mean that it's magical. Or, in Arthur C. Clarke's words, "Any sufficiently advanced technology is indistinguishable from magic". Which is to say that magic is merely a form of extremely advanced technology, in other words something perfectly achievable and natural.
418. Note that what I said about rhetoric also applies to YouTube videos, "pod"casts, public debates, interviews and smoke signals. Real intellectuals will always choose writing, all other forms of communication (including, by the way, direct discussion) are for peasants.
417. The purpose of science is to be turned into technology, and the purpose of technology is to be used in the construction of the Overman. Any purpose other than this is false, at worst a challenge to our culture (since the Overman IS culture: its last and highest achievement), at best a mere misunderstanding. As for "pure science", this is as much of an absurdity as pure spirit: things we can't influence we have no interest in. And it is only because we can influence everything (because flux: either we can influence everything or nothing, since in a universe of flux changing one thing changes everything) that we are interested in everything. So if we help African children, it is only with a view to turning them into scientists and engineers to help construct the Overman. If we support the arts, we do so to inspire the Overman and help him to relax, or to use failed artists as waiters to serve the Overman his meals. Or McDonalds: to feed the subhumans who clean the toilets in the labs where the scientists and engineers are working on the Overman. Everything can be reduced to this. Every other conception of purpose is folly. Everything going the opposite way, e.g. environmentalism, artfagotry, religions other than Overman worship, and so on, are threats to be suppressed, or better yet to be reinterpreted as opportunities for the Overman to challenge himself and exercise his powers. Only as intellectual exercises for the Overman are all these forms of decay justified, but once their workings have been fully grasped, as they will be by the time the present work is over, they are nothing but nuisances that serve no useful purpose and must be minimized or, if possible, completely eliminated.
416. The philosophy of "why". Like a child autistically asking its mother endless questions, without even paying attention to her answers,
the decadent religions and the pseudo-philosophers
keep asking "why" to all our plans and reasons. And why is technology better than eternal primitivism? And why is complex art better than primitive art? And
why is culture better than barbarism, schools and hospitals better than savagery, expansion and discovery better than stagnation or even contraction?
Ultimately, the question that sits at the bottom of all their other questions although they never verbalize it
is "And why is continuing to breathe better than suicide?" for if they verbalized this question the scam would become
obvious, and their championing of decadence would be immediately seen for what it is.
415. Why did the Greeks create democracy? The Greeks created many things, not all of which were good. They were scientists, after all, adventurers and experimenters, and whatever its advocates may have insisted at the time, democracy was merely another one of their experiments. But after the fall of Athens, no one would take democracy seriously for 2,000 years, and even then the only ones who would do so, for a good long while, were slaves.
414. Every great specialist comes at last to commit a great mistake, the nature of which is determined by the nature of his specialty.
413. Smart people are called gammas. Responsible people are called betas. Dumb losers addicted to orgasms are called alphas. All this has neither rhyme nor reason and nothing to do with human history and evolution at all not even with the animal kind. In fact it is exactly how women think. All PUAs are doing is mirroring female thought. After a decade of intensive study and experimentation, they finally managed to become women. And just as women are utterly insignificant in the context of human history, so will the PUAs be.
412. I believe in America. When the bombs were falling on Kosovo and everyone in Greece was anti-American, I was wearing a t-shirt with the stars and stripes on the back, drawing sharp looks and criticisms wherever I would go. I grew up with American videogames. I learned English as a child through American comics. I became acquainted with my body and learned to take pleasure in it through American sports. I opened up to a world of drama and possibilities through American movies. My DNA is Greek, but my dreams are American. Who is the first American philosopher? I am.
411. The irony in subhumans complaining that they don't have a real choice in voting, since all democratic politicians look the same. Of course they look the same, since they are competing for the same votes! I've already covered this: The ruled shaping the rulers: this is not an aberration but democracy at work, and all that the subhumans demonstrate with their interminable whining about it is that they don't have the faintest idea of how it works.
410. Two conceptions of eternity. The subhuman one, as something that goes on "forever" (an illusion, since nothing can go on forever, otherwise things
wouldn't transform to other things and there would be no flux). And the human one as something that always returns.
409. Zarathustra: "All joy wants eternity. It wants deep, deep eternity" which is merely another way of saying that it wants itself.
408. How the subhumans form the opinion that there's more suffering in the world than joy. First they call the philosophers insane and the conquerors evil, thus disregarding the highest mental and physical pleasures. Then they disregard even everyday pleasures due to their ressentiment (cars, homes, sex, money, travel none of these things "bring happiness". And what "brings happiness"? Being a penniless resentful loser, apparently). Finally, they take their little everyday tragedies and, through the media, blow their importance up to metaphysical proportions. And at last the world has been "proved" to contain more suffering than joy.
407. There is no form of government in which those in charge of the administration of things do not live off the population do not "steal" from them, as those below see it though of course there's no stealing involved at all. That's simply what it means to be "in charge": that everything below you belongs to you, and that you can therefore use it as you see fit (otherwise you wouldn't be "in charge"). Either this is acknowledged publicly, as in despotism, or it's hidden from the public as in democracy with pseudo-philosophies, demagoguery and lies. Even in communism, which is Christianity in practice with everyone equal before God God here means simply "the party apparatus". When everyone has become meek lambs in order to at last become equal, of course the one or two wolves remaining will take charge of things and become "communist Gods" overseeing their equal lambs, and, now and again, eating one or two of them. Here too there is no theft the energy which the wolves expend to stay on top so that the communist utopia can EXIST AT ALL needs to be replenished, and it can't very well be replenished magically now can it. As for capitalism, utter inequality is presupposed there, the difference with despotism being that the higher ups are chosen due to their capacity to OFFER others what they want, whereas in despotism due to their strength to impose their will on them. When the latter are no longer capable of retaining control of things, the former step in and take their place. When even the former (which is to say the capitalists) can no longer retain control, some amount of communism is injected in the form of socialism to quell the rising ressentiment; under full-blown capitalism as much as is necessary and no more. The varying amounts of socialism found in different countries are merely a reflection of the differing psychological compositions of the various populations. The most capable, ambitious and energetic the Americans have a minimal amount of it, whereas the most lethargic, lazy, effeminate, etc. e.g. the French have more. And then there are local idiosyncratic cases, as with e.g. the Scandinavians. These are very industrious little bees, but they are also enormously economically successful, for whatever reasons, which is why they don't mind so much that so much is taken away from them. The southern Europeans are far more lazy, but they are also poorer, so socialism stabilizes at a lower level, simply because their societies cannot afford to maintain a higher one for long. There is no LOWER form of government than this this varying mixture of capitalism with socialism. Communism is highly unstable (indeed, strictly speaking impossible), and hence either morphs into despotism (as Orwell saw), if the leadership is strong enough, or implodes and goes back to some mixture of socialism with capitalism if it isn't (as in China). Lower still lies complete anarchism savagery which again can only be temporary, instantaneous even (if not utterly fictional). The moment the strongest men in the group step forward, new governments and government mixtures and nations spring forth, and the game begins anew.
406. I can do this work perfectly fine, all the while moving amongst the slaves and even approaching them and being friendly with them whenever I feel like it. Hatred of any kind on my part is unthinkable one can still move about one's cows and sheep and hares, and even feed them, tend for them, even stroke them and speak sweet words into their ears (as the actor Gιrard Depardieu, who was a great gourmet, once said to interviewers that he did with animals he was about to eat) before slaughtering them.
405. And this progressive diminishing of "mankind" where else could it lead to? First they regress to the level of beasts, then to plants (see VR)
and then to what? What stands lower than beasts and plants? Machines.
404. You know that Cormac McCarthy is an idiot loser and his prose is shit, when he talks about punctuation as "weird little marks that blot the page up". But a "weird little mark" can change, not only the tone and feel of a passage, but even the FUCKING MEANING of it (if the tone and feel were not already meaning, which they are). Pretentious pseudo-intellectual loser. And that's why all his books suck ass.
403. "All your huffing and puffing about the future is smokescreen. You only care about yourself." Naturally. I never said I was a martyr. I don't care about the future selflessly. I care about the future selfishly. Because I am part of it. Because, in a very real sense, it's mine. Because I AM the future. (And by the way also the past.)
402. If it seems to you incredible that I have all the answers, it's only because you haven't been paying attention to the plot for the past 2,500 years. If you had, my arrival would not seem at all incredible to you but an event so inevitable as to be almost mundane.
401. Scientists confuse computational power with intelligence, information with insight. IT means "information technology" not "insight technology". Insight is not about counting up facts "ad infinitum" but of drawing far-reaching inferences from them. When will the scientists draw the inference that immortality is retarded? That the idea of putting an end to the aging process is ridiculous? That the individual sciences are subordinate to the philosophy that created them and not its master? That a model of the world is not the same thing as the world? There will never be a "machine" more intelligent than me or Heraclitus or Nietzsche. The question is not when will machines become intelligent, but when will scientists. And the answer is obviously, if you have grasped at all how sciences are created by cutting off a small part of knowledge of the world, and thus castrating the scientist's mind never.
400. Why does algorithmic functioning preclude the possibility of considerable intelligence? Because it functions on the if/then paradigm, which is the paradigm of absolute control, whereas intelligence is precisely that quality which makes things difficult to control, which renders them out of control, which causes them to overtake and end up controlling the controller...
399. "Alpha" PUA advice on how to be cool: "Act as if anything you like or are interested in is cool."
398. "Bodhisattva in Mahayana Buddhism is a person who is able to reach nirvana but delays doing so out of compassion in order to save suffering beings." Hahahaha. Those Indians are hilarious. Why don't you go set yourself on fire and see if anyone cares?
397. "Alternate universes." The mistake of thinking of a universe as a "place" (instead of as a collection of beings, which is what it is). Related to the mistake of differentiating beings from things. Related to the mistake of free space. Related to weak vision. If neanderthals had had microscopes and particle accelerators perhaps we wouldn't be dealing with the idiocy of "alternate universes" today.
396. Why did the whites use the blacks as slaves, instead of say, the yellows or the browns? Slavery was not racist in the ancient world: most of the Greeks' slaves were whites, so it was not on racist grounds that the whites picked the blacks. They didn't go, "You blacks are racially inferior, so we'll use you as our slaves"; the blacks were simply THE EASIEST ONES TO USE (and hence, the most racially inferior). It was one thing for the Japanese to capitulate to Perry's demand and open up their borders, for example, and another to agree to be bound in chains and shipped off across the world as his slaves. If the whites had tried to pull off that stunt in Japan, they'd have no doubt succeeded to an extent, but with a lot more casualties and losses, a great deal more of trouble. Also, this sort of treatment doesn't seem proper when you see up close the culture of the Japanese, their literature, architecture, and so on; but the blacks were basically begging to become slaves, living in huts or in the dirt, with no proper clothes or tools, etc., no literature or even writing. The greater the distance between you and your inferiors, the easier it is even from a moral standpoint to simply impose your will on them, and monkeys live in cages and no one cares.
395. Continuity lends itself to reality. That is why no one takes dreams to be real. And that is where videogames are headed, the drug-videogames: lucid dreams that are shaped straight out of a reading of the player's unconscious mind.
394. The third option would be stopping globalization altogether, but this would require a power far stronger than globalization's, which is to say a culture that's even more globalized than it. And that's why scruffy ruffians holding placards in the middle of the street have a less than zero chance of ever accomplishing this. The third option then is not really an option, to anyone apart from aliens, but a delusion, which is why I made no mention of it in the preceding section. (And by the way, it's the option Baudrillard went with, which goes to show you what a tenuous grasp on reality he had when all was said and done.)
393. The increased level of stress in the modern world is a reflection and direct consequence of the increase in the extent of the order of rank inside our culture (the Western one, that is). Instead of many little hierarchies, you have a gigantic one, in which everyone feels the weight of many more others on top of him than before. This is globalization. And globalization is efficiency (which is to say progress). You have two options then. Engage with globalization and either reap the rewards if you are above average, or the extra stress if you are below , and don't engage globalization, by, I don't know, moving to a desert island or Siberia or something and living like a savage. Either way neither I nor anyone else is going to give a fuck about you if you are below average, which is precisely the reason you are so stressed. Claiming that disengaging from globalization is a solution is of course a ruse, because no one ever does that (i.e. no one takes the Siberia option). They don't even want to limit the extent of their own country's globalization, because when this actually happens they whine about high prices and falling quality of life. At most they try to grab as much as they can of the fruits of globalization while giving back as little as possible. And that's why they are so stressed, because leeching is a far more nervously taxing strategy than simply giving, which is what the above average do, which is why they are above average.
392. Socrates: "The unexamined life is not worth living." But no life is "unexamined". It's just that the capacity for examination varies from person to person, something which Socrates was too superficial to take into account. Those he thought led an "unexamined" life were simply bad at examination (and consequently led dull lives which were not even worth examining). "The unexamined life is not worth examining", would be the correct thing to say, then and that's precisely why it isn't.
391. Virtual reality as pitfall. That, at least, is how Baudrillard saw it. But a pitfall isn't a pitfall if you are a worm it is your natural habitat. Indeed it is your whole world.
390. Why I have nothing but contempt for self-help authors, especially those who focus on "success", "happiness" and the like. I don't mind the
specialized ones so much ("How to get ripped", "How to prepare for exams", "How to build a business", etc. etc.), so long as they know what they are talking
about. Those are fine for what they are. But the success and happiness ones are terrible. For firstly, these are philosophical issues that geniuses have been
discussing for millennia (as opposed to "how to learn to skateboard", which they haven't). Why would you even go to nobodies for these answers? And then
these answers are either outright stupid, or at best dumbed down misinterpretations of what the great thinkers have said, which the self-help author has
usually heard third- or fourth-hand (i.e. he has not read the original thinker but merely someone else who has read him, etc.) In the best of cases they tell you how to be
MEDIOCRE. I.e. the titles should be "How to Have Mediocre Success in Life", "How to Attain the Happiness of the Mediocre", etc. All their advice is
useless to me. I would have utterly failed in all my goals if I had followed their success blueprints, and I would be miserable if I listened to their
advice on how to be "happy".
389. The "manosphere". Men in their 30s and 40s still swearing by self-help junk as the "best books they've ever read". A thousand years of "red-pillers" could pass and they would still be floundering in a sea of retarded terminology, self-pity, resentful mockery and defeatism, or weak, pathetic resolutions to start change at an individual level by putting into practice some self-help guru's silly top 10. But if you want to learn anything truly intellectual YOU HAVE TO PICK UP REAL BOOKS. BOOKS THAT ONLY LAST FOR 5 OR 10 YEARS ARE NOT REAL. IF YOU DON'T PICK UP THE GIANTS YOU WILL NEVER MAKE ANY PROGRESS IN THE INTELLECTUAL SENSE, EVEN IF YOU ARE CAPABLE OF IT. But if you are not drawn to the giants you are not capable of it anyway. And obviously none of them are.
388. What is "game"? Game as science. They are even PROUD of it being a science. It is studying women so as to learn how to behave in order to lay them. Figuring out how TO BEHAVE AS A MAN, by studying WHAT WOMEN WANT. In other words, it is women shaping men. It is gamma. And if you add in the "no reproduction" rule that PUAs rabidly advocate, it's omega (since omegas are precisely the members of the group practically guaranteed to not reproduce). This is the truth, and no amount of rationalization (which PUAs are very good at, having "picked it up", like a disease, from women) can change it. Alex Kierkegaard has spoken.
387. Is our universe a "simulated reality" and are we "artificial entities" created by "something higher than ourselves"? This is merely the modern atheistic version of the old religious dogmas. Replace the neologisms with religious terminology and you'll see that the questions are the same (with "simulated reality" = our world, as opposed to heaven, and presumably hell; "artificial entities" = God's creatures; and so on). The difference is that trashing the modern version is a little easier than the old one, because the technobabble of the atheists is not quite so flagrantly nonsensical as that of the religious nuts. The religious nut says that heaven and hell are "outside the universe", and good luck explaining to him that "universe" is merely a word which we have coined to express the concept "everything", and that therefore by definition nothing can be outside of it. But the atheist should be able to grasp that "our universe" cannot be a "simulated reality" (whatever that's supposed to mean) because there's no such thing as "our" universe the universe contains both us and the lifeform that created us, and our little CORNER of the universe. Moreover, there's no way that our little corner of the universe is "not real". Even if we are sitting on someone else's hard drive and exploring that hard drive, etc., that hard drive IS REAL, it EXISTS, and has REAL PHYSICAL PROPERTIES, just like WE do. The only difference in this scenario would be merely the fact that the universe would be much larger than what we previously thought, which, after all, has happened several times before. As for the creator himself, he is nowhere near as "all-powerful" and scary as the religious nut's creator precisely because he's inside the universe like us and everything else, meaning that, not only can he be defeated, but he certainly WILL be, if not by us (which could be possible, in the exact same way that much of our science-fiction explores the possibility that our machines may one day defeat us), then certainly by someone else. That, after all, is what "everything flows" means, and that includes all scary boogeymen dreamt up by weaklings in their sleep.
386. With Heraclitus something begins, while with me that something ends, and that something is philosophy.
385. Austrian vs. Anglo-Saxon economics. Theoretically, the Austrian economists are correct and the Anglo-Saxons are charlatans. In practice,
the Anglo-Saxon economists are correct (even if unconsciously) while the Austrians are naive fantasists. Let's try to understand why.
384. The actor is the polar opposite of the criminal to such an extent that they complete each other. All actors want to be criminals, and all criminals want to be actors. And just as the slaves consciously despise but subconsciously admire the criminal, they consciously admire but they subconsciously despise the actor.
383. The 5-year-old child who suggested that America "kill everyone in China" to avoid having to pay its 1.3 trillion dollar debt to that country. We finally got to the point where the solutions to our problems are literally obvious even to children.
382. Ultimately, I reject sexuality because of the impurity of its reproductive process. The smartest girl I've ever met is a monkey compared to me,
the smartest woman I have HEARD of is a child, and I am going to mix up the genes of my brain with THAT? The subhumans will find this outrageous,
but the subhumans are addicted to a bunch of chemicals in the brain and can't see beyond an orgasm, so of course they'll be outraged; they have their eyes
ON THE NEXT HIT, not on the future. And besides, their genes are so mediocre that the worst that can happen to them by mixing is more mediocrity, and if
they are lucky they might even get a lucky hit. That's why sexual reproduction is indeed a sound strategy IF YOU ARE MEDIOCRE.
381. Baudrillard's hatred of hospitals was inspired from Foucault, another idiot who argued against "the marginalization of the insane", etc. (if the maudlin scribblings of these two pompous dumbasses can be called arguing at all, that is). They should have been made to live with terminally ill and insane people in their living rooms. Maybe then these two geniuses would have learned what every other person in the street who hasn't even been to school already instinctively knows.
380. Let's say that one of my readers is a postal worker, and wants to know what I think about him. Well, it depends on a few things.
We certainly need postal workers. If you are a straight white male with a straight white female wife who made straight white children, it's all good. We are
an endangered species and the planet already has enough individuals of other races and sexual orientations who enter the culture with so much self-loathing
that it is impossible for them to look out into the world without utterly falsifying it. So from my perspective I have nothing against you if you stay
enclosed in your little job and your little life, and remain content therein. I have no use for you except in your professional capacity, as someone who
will deliver my mail, and perhaps if your daughter
is cute or if your wife bakes nice pies I might date your daughter or eat your wife's pies. Within these parameters I fully accept you, and even adore you
if your mail-delivery skills/daughter/wife's pies are exceptionally good. But I could not spend
a day in your shoes without wanting to kill myself, and the mere thought of it suffices to make me depressed. Having said that, from the perspective of the
untold masses of uncivilized and penniless subhumans that stand below you, your life is certainly enviable (which is why they are invading your country and
trying to take it away from you). And from YOUR perspective? Some things about
you and your life you
love, some things you certainly dislike, and other things you maybe
even hate. The only question is how much and how many things about you you hate or you dislike, and that's what ressentiment is. But that is all
again your business. The problems begin when you start involving yourself with things that don't concern you, and taking an interest in OTHER people's
business (politics), or in EVERYONE else's business (philosophy), and projecting into them all
your personal failures and incapacities. That's when your business becomes my business, and where I advocate that you should either be suppressed or, if you
still fail to take the hint, exterminated.
379. Economists believe that you only create something in order to exchange it for something else. I.e. you only create something because you really want something else. It never crosses their mind that someone might create something because he wants to create precisely that thing, and doesn't desire anything in return for it, for if they could fathom such an individual and such an act they wouldn't be economists. But it is this kind of creation that is the best and most valuable kind. It is precisely the most valuable things that count for nothing in economic thought, because the entire science has been built on the principle of exchange, which, taken to its ultimate conclusion (as I just did) is obviously by definition decadent. And this is where Bataille's General Economy and the Accursed Share come in.
378. The only sensible way to travel to third-world countries is as part of an occupation force.
377. Alex Kierkegaard's Daygame Turbo: Street Pick-up for Alpha Males. GET ANY WOMAN ANYWHERE EVER. 100% GUARANTEED TO WORK, THE ONLY PICK-UP SYSTEM THAT CAN BOAST THIS. No need to worry about your health, fitness, style, financial or social status, or about any other factor whatsoever SINCE THE GIRL HAS EXACTLY ZERO CONTROL OVER WHAT HAPPENS. The PUAs will tell you that pick-up won't always work, that it's a numbers game, etc. etc., but that's because their methods LEAVE ALL ULTIMATE CONTROL OVER WHAT HAPPENS TO THE GIRL. Alphas my ass. My method gives you FULL CONTROL, from start to finish of the interaction, so without further ado, here goes. Step 1. Buy a .45 Glock. Better yet, make it two. Step 2. Spot girl. Makes no difference if she's in a 2-set or a 3-set, or with her boyfriend, or a whole troupe of guys. If she's with boyfriend, shoot him in the face. If her girlfriends get in the way, shoot them in the face too. Step 3. Grab her by the hair. If she resists, slap her around a bit (taking care not to damage her. If you do, find another girl and start over.) Step 4. Shove her in your car. Any bystanders try to stop you, shoot them in the face. Police chase, you get the idea. Step 5. Take her home. Step 6. Smash her smartphone and chain her to your bed. Step 7. Have fun for the rest of your or her life (probably hers since she won't live very long under these conditions. If, on the other hand, you want a real relationship and children, I have two words for you: Stockholm Syndrome.) The PUAs and PUA theory have only been around a decade, MY theory has been around forever. THIS IS THE TRUE FACE OF ALPHA. ANY OTHER APPROACH WHATSOEVER IS GAMMA TO THE CORE (betas don't approach girls, they wait until the girls approach them). THE END.
376. The joy of eating. It will forever remain irrefutable proof of how much fun it is to kill. But one should withhold such insights from the civilized, for this is the secret of the jungle.
375. However much the pseudo-intellectuals (and especially the European ones) would like to deny this, the truth is that America's victory is cultural. It is in art, in sports, in business, in science and technology, in health and medicine, and even in education (say what you want about obesity or stupid American kids, but if you want the best universities and hospitals in the world, there's nowhere else to go). Its military record, on the other hand, is either full of defeats, or of successes on which it failed to follow through and capitalize (because democracy), thus ruining itself financially. And yet, for all that, they still have the best military in the world! American's victory, in other words, is total except in one domain, the highest reaches of culture, in literature and ultimately philosophy. And that is where I would like to give something back to this nation and to this culture that has given all of us and to me personally so much, and indeed almost everything.
374. iek still believes in "the ultimate triumph of communism" in much the same way that the Asians still believe in "Eastern philosophies", or the blacks believe, despite all evidence to the contrary, that they are not inferior. This is the effect of the Western locomotive. Those it doesn't physically obliterate, it freaks out into denial. There is no hope for anyone whose skin is not white, not because we are "racists", but because they are.
373. Those who are afraid of death should strive even harder than the rest of us to expend their strength. Because what happens when one's strength has been expended is that one craves death, and therefore does not fear it.
372. Baudrillard accused the artists of hiding behind the mystification of images, while he himself hid behind the mystification of words... all the while claiming that a word is not image, while not bothering to take the trouble to learn how the eye works.
371. Capital accumulation is merely the economic reflection and logical consequence of the brute fact that we are not equal. And that's what's really bothering the anti-capitalists.
370. The main peeve of the anti-capitalists is that the goal of capitalists is profits. But what is profit? It is merely the economic manifestation of the gratitude that an individual feels he owes to someone who has served him. And so the subhumans earn the right to vilify the capitalists... for serving them and indeed for being exceptionally good at it too (otherwise they wouldn't have earned so many profits) the sheer rudeness and ingratitude of which behavior would have made even the most vicious of old style slave owners seem good-natured, amicable, and just.
369. In contemporary multiplayer game design, even with today's simplistic, primitive techniques, we continually encounter the desire to "balance" the
game, to make it in other words "just" for all players, so that everyone will have equal possibilities to win and therefore no reason to complain and
blame the game when they lose while of course conveniently ignoring the fact that everyone NEVER has equal possibilities to win, otherwise there would
be an entirely random distribution of winning outcomes, and people like Kasparov et al. would not exist we conveniently ignore the fact that only the
coin toss can be a "just" game, in our paltry, unnatural, purely fictitious and arbitrary definition of justice, because in reality in every skill-based
game the genetic dimension is always just as important as practice, which is itself also decided by genetic factors, since certain kinds of people are
more inclined to practice more and gain more from it when they do it than others and that is how reality seeps inside even our hermetically sealed game
environments and contaminates them with its wisdom. Because if we finally succeeded in giving every player equal possibilities to win a game, what would
the result be? Boring-ass games like the coin toss which no one would want to play. But it is true that we HAVE to strive to some extent for this balance
in our games, because the range of moves/actions/possibilities in our games is much more limited compared to those possible in the Great Game, and therefore far easier
to analyze and map out. Minimizing "imbalances" then is thus a priority, on the one hand in order to make the game more difficult to master, and thus
deeper and more enjoyable, and on the other hand, and more importantly for our present discussion, in order to level the playing field so that the UNJUST
natural qualities can come to the fore and decide the winner. We have to level the playing field not because a level playing field is in itself desirable
(because it isn't it's boring), but so as to allow our hereditary, genetic qualities to shine forth more clearly, so that we can finally settle the
question of which of us is GENETICALLY SUPERIOR, which is to say superior, full stop.
368. If your theory is better than mine why are you the one with the ressentiment?
367. Increasingly older people making babies. Result: weaker and stupider children. Death of the family. Result: disadvantaged weaker and stupider children with psychological issues. Society inundated with decadent propaganda. Result: disadvantaged weaker and stupider children with psychological issues pissing their lives away doing stupid shit, and therefore ever more resentful towards the increasingly tiny minority that somehow manages to avoid all these pitfalls. This is the face of the subhumanity of the future: weaker, stupider, and more resentful than ever before. They will make Neanderthals look like geniuses and supermen in comparison. But, for the same reason, they will cause the Overmen of the future to shine more brightly than anyone has ever done before.
366. Marxist thought is utterly obsessed with "the means of production" in much the same way that Austrian economists are utterly obsessed with the "original" appropriation of "unclaimed" resources (as if in a universe of flux there could ever be any truly "original" act or any object whatsoever that's really "unclaimed"). What is unworthy in both of them is that they see the starting point, the very beginning of human happiness and prosperity, in something that exists OUTSIDE the individual, whereas in reality everything good and valuable about human life begins inside the brain (with an idea), in the absence of which no amount of "means of production" or "unclaimed resources" could have the slightest positive effect on the life of an individual who is so lacking (quite apart from the fact that "means of production" and "unclaimed" resources are anyway created by the brain). But this is typical of the mind that has been trained to think only in economic terms, treating only of what occurs BETWEEN individuals, and completely ignoring what, while the exchange is taking place, is happening INSIDE them.
365. A "hermeneutic" is an interpretation. That's all it is merely the Greek word for interpretation. But if someone said "I have an interpretation!", he'd be immediately met with a cry of, "Get in line, so does everyone else!" But if instead he says "I have a HERMENEUTIC!", it's an entirely different ballgame, and one which pseudo-intellectuals have been playing for centuries now, to the detriment of genuine intellectuality and culture.
364. The interminable debate on whether more or less government is preferable is superfluous, for when there is a real government in place THIS DEBATE CANNOT EVEN BE WAGED. You do not have a choice in the matter that is what government is, a structure of control, and the amount of control exerted will depend, as aforesaid, on the capacities of those who are on top relative to their subjects'. When the debate CAN be waged it's a sure sign that there is no government in place, and the debate is merely a means to pass the time with idle talk while politics is declining and everyone's waiting for someone to step in and reverse this. So, once more, how much control should a government exercise over its subjects? It depends on who is ruling and the number, and quality, of the ruled. An Augustus or a Napoleon can handle entire continent-spanning empires while performing a hundred tasks at once, and micromanaging everything, while a Kim Jong-il, who only has a tiny country in his command, will sit at home all day and watch movies. And as for the democrats who can always be counted upon, even amid the most serious and harshest deliberations, to come through with comic relief these will attempt to make YOU control their decision on how much they should control you!
363. Natalism vs. antinatalism. It is hilarious how the natalists try to argue with the antinatalists, the latter of whom are like an enemy in the middle of war threatening to commit suicide. It's not just the antinatalists who shouldn't reproduce, then, but even many of the natalists, such as for instance all those who try to argue with the antinatalists.
362. What is "capital"? It is simply another word for money, which is a medium that facilitates exchange. Capitalism, then, is merely a state of things in which individuals are able, and allowed, to enter into exchange. That's all it is. Capitalism = Exchange. And since it is impossible for any culture and civilization at all to exist without exchange (indeed exchange is the number one prerequisite for civilization, with language itself understood as a form of exchange, the exchange of feelings), we might as well say that Capitalism = Civilization. To be against capitalism, then, means to be against civilization which is par for the course for the kind of subhuman dreck which perpetually champions this nauseating, decadent notion. Just take a good look at them and you'll see.
361. The so-called "game" is indeed, to a certain extent, "social dynamics". But the more interesting ones to psychoanalyze in this game are not the girls (girls are some of the most shallow and boring creatures on the face of the planet), but the PUAs.
360. The PUAs' most hated concept is hypergamy and their most loved one solipsism. Their entire psychology is contained here. Hypergamy is hated because it signifies woman's natural desire to get the best mate she can get (which for any reasonably desirable woman would of course never be a PUA), while solipsism is loved because it helps the PUA become more confident by blocking out the rest of mankind from his mind and thus forgetting, for a while, how low on the totem pole he's standing. And the Mental Tower Defense game goes on. Keep building up those defenses, guys! Defense, after all, is the best offense. He who said the opposite clearly hadn't read enough PUAs.
359. On "alternate" universes and the "many-worlds" interpretation of quantum mechanics. How little the scientists understand the world they are trying to study... For in a universe in which everything is connected to, and conditioned by, everything else, if ONE thing is different EVERYTHING is different, and the "alternate" universe is thus a place which DOES NOT BEAR THE SLIGHTEST RESEMBLANCE TO OUR OWN, an utterly alien place nothing of which can be known to or be affected by us, which I will repeat a thousand times IS PRECISELY THE DEFINITION OF NON-EXISTENCE. Even worse, it's not so much that "alternate universes" do not exist, but that the very term is a contradictio in adjecto ("alternate everythings" lol) and hence meaningless, mere verbiage that idiots spout to pass the time because they are incapable of analyzing THIS world, which is the only one that exists, and thus the only one that matters.
358. "He may be right, but his tone renders his message useless to me" is merely a roundabout way of saying "I don't give a shit about the issues", whereas he who is prepared to write in such an aggressive tone that will repel most readers if that's what's required to get the message across is saying "NOTHING matters MORE to me than these issues".
357. Why are mass shootings such an overwhelmingly American phenomenon among the nations of the civilized world? No one can answer this. And yet the answer is quite simple. If it's not the genetics, nor the wide availability of guns, it has to be the culture, something in the American psyche that differs from those of the peoples of the rest of the civilized world. So what do Americans lack that the rest of the world has? Or, better yet, what do Americans have that the rest of the world lacks? Balls. That gung-ho practical, no-holds-barred competitive, self-help, do-it-yourself, entrepreneurial pioneering spirit on which their glorious nation was built, and which of course manifests itself in the bad aspects of their behavior as well as the good. The same qualities that make Americans the best in some spheres also make them the worst in others. And so it is that while a depressed, maladjusted European sits in his room and mopes and whines, the American goes out into the street and shoots people.
356. One of the triumphs of Breaking Bad (and, to a lesser extent, Game of Thrones) is how it manages to retain narrative cohesion for dozens upon dozens of hours without recourse to disposable, filler content, and this is certainly part of why it's so engrossing. We can infer that, given a high enough level of quality, and all else being equal, the longer an artwork's duration, the more immersive it will be, and that the most immersive artwork would therefore last... forever. It would be time itself enveloping the "viewer" in all directions.
355. With videogame criticism, you really begin to see the gulfs between lifeform and lifeform. They were evident before, but now they are a thousand times clearer. E.g. who prefers 2D, or third-person, or hates strategy, etc. Inferiority is clear as day now. They may as well be screaming in your face "I am a cripple!" And straightaway they add: "Cripples are people too, you know!" But, actually, they aren't.
354. If you developed a simulated world populated by intelligent entities, they would no doubt explore that world and develop their own science, all the while blissfully unaware that their "science" is something you made up. One being's science is another's simulation.
353. Alas! it is impossible to convince even the cripples, except those whose infirmity consists precisely in this: to become easily convinced.
352. How many kids are starving in other planets and galaxies while we waste time not spending money making the hyperdrive engines to get there and feed them? These engines will open up an entire new universe of "poor" "African" "kids" to rescue (from themselves and from their parents!), so is it moral of us to spend our resources helping a few African kids here, when we could be spending it on the hyperdrive engines to help even more kids elsewhere? Even in charity which is to say in wretchedness and absurdity the Overman is far ahead of the subhumans. So far ahead that he has already realized that the best thing to do about "African" "kids" the world over, is to forget them.
351. How To Be Successful. An eBook by Alex Kierkegaard. Chapter 1: If you have to ask you never will be, because real success (as opposed to the fake, financial and social kind that the self-help gurus are peddling) comes from within, not from without, and hence "success" is the one thing that no one can teach you, but precisely what, by succeeding, you will end up teaching others. The End.
350. Nothing degrades and dehumanizes the inhabitants of the third world more than the lurid, wretched spectacle of the masses of Westerners who desperately try to inject some meaning into their comfortable, boring lives by trying to "help" them. Helping them "help themselves" is even more degrading. Could any of us come up with a more contemptuous way to view them? Chaining them up and shipping them across the world to serve as slaves in our plans and projects is an immeasurably more dignifying way to treat them. A savage who's been enslaved by forces far beyond his control cuts a far more dignified figure to the free man who's so stupid and worthless that he requires strangers from halfway across the world to come over and "help him help himself" to the crumbs that they throw at him, as if at a dog, from the leftovers at their table.
349. "And why, then, must I ultimately die?" Because that is the only way to be reborn.
348. I mean, look at it this way. If the billionaire nerds were indeed that powerful, wouldn't they have to be the most ressentiment-free men in the entire world? But what is a nerd if not a hopelessly tangled little ball of neuroticism and ressentiment? And that's why they all take so readily to futurism. "When immortality arrives", they all think, "I'll be the first in line!" Might as well put your name down for that time travel machine while you are at it, so you can also go back to your teenage years and change your entire past!
347. "Nerds will rule the world." Like saying, "bees will rule the beehive". In what alternate universe lol? The idea is so obviously farcical you can't even make comedy out of it. The IT evangelists have not the faintest idea what it means to rule. They are not even looking into the actual things the nerds are making (marginally useful applications that help distract the slaves from the sheer drudgery that is their daily lot), but are simply reducing everything to money, money which is so utterly useless that the nerds themselves have not the faintest clue what to do with it once they acquire it, and can't figure out ideas fast enough of how to get rid of it. The gigantic irony in all this is that, when examined closely, it is clear that money is the opposite of power.
346. Why are women so good at rationalization? Because of how weak they are, how incapable of controlling external events. Either you are strong enough to shape the external world to your wishes, or the external world is stronger and shapes you, in which case you adapt to the new circumstances by a rationalization, i.e. an explanation of the course of external events AFTER THE FACT. Rationalization, then, is obviously reactive, for at the pinnacle of strength you don't even need an explanation, because you ARE the explanation (i.e. the cause of the event itself).
345. There is no fundamental difference between the sounds coming out of the mouth of a bird or a dog and a homo sapiens; all lifeforms' vocalizations are means of communication, of expressing an inner psychic reality. Is anything a bird or a dog ever says wrong? And the same goes for subhumans. The goal therefore is not to prove anyone wrong, but to understand them, which is where linguistic optics, the field of study which I have introduced to semiotics comes in, and which will one day celebrate its ultimate triumph in the Dictionary of the Subhuman Language.
344. Why is the worst "yet to come"? Because our power is growing, and, as elementary mechanics can show, the higher the rise, the harder the fall.
343. How astonishingly balanced this game is, that one can start it with the greatest of advantages and still fail (as, e.g., every single spoiled rich kid in the history of the species), or with the greatest of handicaps and still end up ruling the world (as e.g. a certain bum in the streets of twentieth-century Vienna). It is in fact even impossible to definitively distinguish advantages from handicaps! so that no one would ever be justified in complaining about his starting point! (except liars and dumbasses, of course, who deceive others by complaining to them in order to be handed more advantages and who prove themselves smart, after all, when they succeed and get them!)
342. Zarathustra: "It is the stillest words which bring the storm. Thoughts that come on dove's feet guide the world."
341. Looked at more closely, it is not the alphas who make the rules but the philosophers. The alphas merely put them into practice, as the Han dynasty did with Confucius' philosophy, Alexander with Aristotle's, the Roman emperors with the Stoics' and the Epicureans', Lenin and Mao with Marx's, Hitler, Stalin, Mussolini and Franco with Nietzsche's, and even the democratic pseudo-leaders, to an extent, with the pseudo-philosophers' liberal claptrap. It is only subhumans who think that philosophy is superfluous and causes nothing, but as the fascists' and communists' millions of victims discovered (a little too late for their liking), not only is philosophy (which is to say thought) not superfluous, but it makes the world go round.
340. Betas follow rules. Alphas make the rules. Sigmas laugh at rules. It is clear which group the philosopher belongs in, and in which he'd like to belong.
339. It is not the dog's fault for getting run over by a car, it is the fault of its owner for allowing it run around in the street without a leash.
It is not the subhuman's fault for picking incompetent leaders, it is our fault for allowing the subhumans to have a say in the matter at all. The dog
cannot be held responsible for its actions in this domain. There are no cars in the jungle (or in whatever the natural habitat of its ancestors
was), to which all its
instincts have evolved to help it deal with. About the only thing that could step on you in a jungle is an elephant, and elephants do not run at 100km/hour.
You cannot be RUN
OVER by an elephant. The cheetah goes at 120km/hour, but it's too small to run a dog-sized animal over. The dog, and more or less all the lower animals
(e.g. birds when they are, for example, sucked into a plane's turbine engines), is simply utterly unprepared to deal with something like a car, and that's
why we invented leashes. Similarly, the subhuman is under no circumstances prepared to make decisions on the leadership of millions. The
homo sapiens genome has evolved to deal with TRIBAL matters, with small groups, and in this domain it performs admirably: one simply follows the
strongest neanderthal around, or else he's clobbered by the neanderthal's friends until he sees reason, or gets kicked out of the group to starve to death
or succumb to the elements or predators. But when it
comes to groups of MILLIONS spanning entire CONTINENTS, the subhuman brain is utterly incapable of dealing with such a complex situation.
can deal with it, extremely exceptional exceptions, and these are called LEADERS. It is the responsibility of the leaders to arrange things thus that
they are on top, not anyone else's to PLACE them there. Indeed, GAINING control is one of the fundamental qualities of a leader (because if he's incapable
of gaining it he won't be very good at maintaining it either), without which HE CANNOT BE SAID TO BE A LEADER IN THE FIRST PLACE. And just
as the dog though it has no capacity to understand the concept "car", and when left on its own is, sooner or later, going to be run over by one can still
benefit from the car when its owner puts it in the back seat, cracks a window open, and lets the dog stick its head out and look at the passing scenery,
flapping gaily in the wind as the car accelerates to 100km/hour, so too the subhuman whose brain has no capacity to understand the concept "leadership",
and when left on his own is, sooner or later, going to construct such an absurd anti-hierarchy that the average man in the street will be more capable than
those at the top can still benefit from the true leader when he has constructed a real hierarchy, as for example in all higher cultures on earth up until
the madness that began, more or less, a few years ago with the French Slave Revolution.
338. Harsh truths can only be communicated through harsh words. But harsh truths are what philosophy exclusively deals in! Consequently philosophy can only be communicated through harsh words.
337. Camille Montes: "Friend of yours?" James Bond: "I don't have friends."
336. Strength, courage, endurance, willpower all these qualities the PUAs have reduced to a short text message about eating steak or being rude or whatever they have reduced them to a bunch of little monkey signals. And this makes perfect sense, since what else do women understand about all these qualities than monkey signals? They themselves do not possess them any more than the PUAs do, so all they know of them are their most superficial, dumbest expressions. So the PUAs send a short message about eating steak or whatever, and pat themselves on the back on how "alpha" they've become. They first deceive women into thinking of them as alphas, and then they use women's reaction to deceive themselves. It's like a drug addict in the middle of an acid trip congratulating himself on having finally become a strong, healthy, successful and happy man AFTER HE HAS TRICKED HIS BRAIN TO THINK SO. They take one of the CONSEQUENCES of a state of being (and usually even the most trivial, secondary consequences), simulate this consequence, and then convince themselves that they possess the quality. And then off they go, gaily tapping away endless blog posts and ebooks with their little keyboards to tell the rest of mankind how to do it. "LETS ALL BECOME ALPHAS HAHAHAHAHA." Which is to say, let's all become solipsistic retards and drug addicts. But not even animals are that stupid. Not even wolves would believe that all of them could become alpha. Even dogs know that any given pack can only ever have ONE leader, and that leadership ("alphaness") is a relational concept that of its very nature cannot be extended to everyone, not even to so much as a minority. Then the PUA wizards will come back with some silly retort that every group of friends has an alpha, so we can easily have plenty of them. But merely to be part of "a group of friends" today PROVES that you are not alpha. And that's a real alpha talking. True story. I spit on you and your group of boring, idiotic friends. I may as well go to the zoo and become the leader of monkeys. It would take far more strength and skill than to assert my leadership over a group of your stupid friends. The fact that all this monkey business CAN ACTUALLY WORK, and get you laid, is not proof that the PUAs are on to something (beyond how to get laid), but that women are stupid, and can be very easily deceived.
335. It seems so ridiculous that the billions of nobodies that surround the genius believe more in themselves than in Him. And yet, that is precisely what He needs them to do, so that He can believe in Himself.
334. According to encyclopedias, Kierkegaard is supposed to have been the first "existentialist" philosopher. But what does that even mean? When was there ever a philosopher who didn't concern himself with existence? That's all that philosophers are concerned with! because they are concerned with everything, and there IS nothing else apart from existence! Do these people who create these utterly retarded labels ever read anything? All the issues with which K-man was concerned have been mulled over by philosophers for millennia, and if you look closely enough you'll not find a single idea in him that had not already been explored to one degree or another by numerous previous thinkers (and in plenty of cases to a much greater depth than him). There is no "existentialism", there are only a bunch of mouthbreathing subhumans who are too stupid to deal with the actual issues at hand, and who therefore prefer to make neat little bunches of them by blanketing them with retarded makeshift labels, and then proceed to juggle those instead so that they won't ever have to think about anything. Even "postmodernism" is a more valid label than existentialism, and that's saying something!
333. The quickest way for a subhuman to stop being addicted to complaining is to cut off all ties with his friends. But even that will not work today, since he'll just go on the internet and complain to strangers instead.
332. Three levels of outlook on life. On the first, and lower, level, the blind optimism of subhumans. "In the future we'll all be equal and immortal! All desires will be immediately satisfied and no one will ever have to work!" On the second, higher level, the pessimism of the great men and the philosophers. "You brainless cattle! The world doesn't work that way! Not only will your utopia never materialize but the worst is yet to come!" And on the third and final level, the tragic feeling of the classical heroes, the greatest philosophers and the Overmen of the future. "The worst will indeed come, but only because we welcome it and want it to."
331. To love your work so much, that taking a break from it is painful and must be forced on you. The workaholic is the slave who has almost redeemed himself.
330. One can see everywhere in the slave society habits and attitudes which betray what the slaves really think about themselves. Take the first day of the year. Why is it a "holiday", i.e. a day of doing nothing? Why is the first day of the year a day of "rest"? Precisely the time to make a strong start, where dynamism, optimism, etc. are called for, the slave stays at home and does nothing, BECAUSE HE HATES WHAT HE DOES. He can think of no higher gift to give himself on the first day of a new year, than to take a break from his reality. But if a rest day should be taken at all, it should clearly be the last day of the year. The first day should be a day FOR GETTING DOWN TO WORK, and indeed for working harder than any other day. With more zeal, more focus, more determination, etc. It's like making the first hour of the day an hour of sleep. But you just woke up! And it's precisely on waking that our powers are at their apex, and consequently should not be squandered but fully utilized. The slave, however, never wakes up, and even in his sleep, in his eternal sleep, contributes to what happens all around him, as Heraclitus so insightfully relates to us. "Those who are asleep are fellow-workers in what goes on in the world."
329. Complaining as an evolutionary phenomenon. Supreme fact: no complaining in the jungle. Complaining a deeply reactive behavior since it presupposes others TO WHOM one can complain.
328. Even a slab of stone can understand physical violence, but the mental kind is reserved for much higher beings.
327. The anarchist's opposition to the state comes from communism, even if they pretend to fully repudiate it (much like the democrat's theory of equal beings comes from Christianity, even if they pretend to distance themselves from it and vilify it). But despotism comes before both of them. Despotism is the start of everything what allowed us to part ways from the animals and forge our own future. It was strong human beings who took control of the herd and turned it into a tribe, the tribe into a city, the city into a nation, the nation into an empire, the empire into a culture, and finally the culture... into an Overman. And it is the strong (no-longer-so-)human being who, once more, will lead the way by lighting the match that will send up the entire world in flames.
326. The future's not bright, the future's tragic. That's all you need to say to clear the room of futurists and other optimistic cattle. Would people of this kind have had any place at Thermopylae? Maybe in Xerxes' army! (which I hear was full of optimists, starting with the man himself). And their fate is precisely what the future of our dear futurists will be.
325. Why are sitcom characters so promiscuous? Even George Costanza has more girlfriends than your neighborhood pretty boy. The sitcom is the most realistic form of TV series (i.e. the less artistic). TV dramas focus on wars, crimes, science fiction, and the like, but none of that is useful in a sitcom. In something like the The X-Files the action is so intense you don't even need any hookups to keep interest alive, but a mere hint of sexuality will suffice. There are far more important and interesting things going on in The X-Files world than the little gossip-style pleasure of finding out who hooked up with whom. In sitcoms, meanwhile, even when there is a fantastic element (as e.g. in 3rd Rock from the Sun), it is kept to the minimum, is merely the premise of the show, while the entire heart of it is hookups. But why is that? Because subhuman life is so mundane that the only aspect of relative interest in it is sexual relations. When trying to turn subhuman life into art, therefore (as e.g. in shows like Friends and the like), it's the only thing you can focus on, the only dimension you can conceivably glorify. Whenever this aspect comes to a standstill (as e.g. in the last few seasons of The Big Bang Theory, etc.) the show inevitably flatlines. What's more, a TV show can only ever feature a small number of regular actors, because of costs, etc., so everyone must be made to hook up with everyone else, and as many times as possible.
324. A good philosophical exercise is this: every time you help someone, to try and think of whom you are at the same time hurting. Do this often and well enough, and you will slowly begin to really see.
323. The lust to "communicate" (read: to dominate via concept propagation) is so great that one would just as surely have tried to speak to frogs if
there were the slightest chance of being "understood" (i.e. of being dominated) by them. The philosopher would go as far as learning frogese, the frog's
language, in order to communicate with it and dominate it. He would bellow "You should be thus and thus and thus!", and the poor frog would no doubt answer:
"But I am a frog! To be as you say would be impossible for me!", and only then would the philosopher finally come to his senses: "You are indeed
a frog", he would perhaps say, "that little detail had escaped me I must have lost my senses!" And at that point he would simply stop addressing
himself to frogs.
322. Jack Nicholson's character in As Good as It Gets, acting like a tough guy 99 percent of the time, but a hypocrite when the moment for real violence arrives, while all the fags in the film conduct themselves admirably (no doubt precisely the intention of the fags who wrote the script, or meant as a sop to fags). But isn't this preferable to acting like a fag all of the time (i.e. to being a fag)? After all, when his hypocrisy goes undetected, it still transmits healthy values. Or are you denying that there do exist men who, not only act like tough guys, but who are indeed tough? It's no secret that 90% of the machismo in our society is fake just look at all our art (which is by definition fake). But that means nothing other than that machismo is still considered cool and valued here. From the perspective of the health and future of the species, then, a manly hypocrite will always be preferable to a genuine fag.
321. The philosopher is the king of the actual, the artist that of the fantastical. The difference between the two therefore is that the end product of the philosopher's work must be attainable unavoidable, even; while that of the artist never.
320. "Agreeing to disagree" utterly superfluous. When we disagree it is obvious, we do not need to "agree" to it, we are already disagreeing! The only thing we could agree to is to agree to agree WHEN WE DISAGREE, and vice versa (i.e. to agree to disagree when we are agreeing lol). That is the only thing that would have meaning. But once again it is folly to take the blurtings of the subhumans literally. They generate on the fly the vernacular by which they understand themselves, and which is necessary to prevent fighting between them and to attack their opponents. In this case it is with a view to the prevention of infighting that the retarded terminology has been created and is being employed. All "agreeing to disagree" means is "Please stop with this line of thinking because you are making me uncomfortable".
319. The form of government depends on the strength of those who are on top more precisely, on the power differential between the rulers and their subjects. Thus it was that all primitive forms of government were despotic big gorillas lording it over smaller ones and there were no socialistic fagotries in the jungle. As the mass of subjects expands, however, control becomes increasingly harder to maintain, and LIES are needed to supplement the spears and muscles. Finally, when the number of subjects approaches billions the usefulness of muscle completely disappears, and all that remains is lies, lies, lies, at which point democracy comes to the foreground. Communism, on the other hand, is an attempt, initially through lies, to reinstate the supremacy of brawn. Communism BEGINS with lies ("We are all equal!"), but it ends with gulags and execution squads.
318. The entire hoopla around the issue of universal health care is due to the subhumans' inability to parse reality. "A cure exists, ergo I have a right to it as much as anyone else." But the cure took mountains of money to be developed, and costs mountains of money to be applied. To apply it to some loser is not charity but a crime against humanity like allowing a Miss Earth to have babies with a leper. If you are struggling obtaining health care IT IS RIGHT AND PROPER THAT YOU SHOULDN'T HAVE IT. Not only is there nothing wrong with this state of affairs, then, but that's exactly how things should be. As far as you are concerned, therefore, the cure doesn't really exist, or else we would be giving full 1,000-dollar checkups to farm animals. You have absolutely no right to the advances of medical science any more than they do. The medical community's services are not a right but a PRIVILEGE, and you must be already very privileged to have a right to such a high privilege.
317. Why is reaction ultimately necessary in the universe? Because nobody can see themselves without a reflection. The reaction of his believers (as much as of his unbelievers) is how a God takes pleasure in himself; indeed, ultimately, how he becomes conscious of his existence.
316. Whatever you wish for, whatever you desire, if you are not willing to risk dying for it, you don't deserve to have it.
315. All throughout Europe fringe parties rise on the backs of extremists and gain themselves exposure. The closer they get to power the more they have to tone down their extremism if they desire to acquire more power, and by the time they get to power they are moderate. Everything that must be done to reach that goal is done: ministers are fired, previously-held positions are discarded and even denied, unholy alliances are forged, and so on and so forth, until at last the party's program is rewritten to be entirely unrecognizable. This is also why the right and the left, though they start out as fiercely opposed, eventually become essentially indistinguishable. This is not proof of corruption of the right or of the left, but of the democratic process working as intended. For those who say that democracy is not working are plainly wrong: democracy is working just fine, the difference being that its work is not beneficial but pernicious. The simple fact is that the mediocre (which is what the moderates are: the middle can never be extremist, for it and only it DEFINES what is moderate) will never elect anything other than mediocrity. This proves that democratic parties are shaped by the electorate, and not the other way around. But this is decadent. This is the opposite of leadership. For leadership is supposed to be that function which shapes those who are being led, not the other way around. Otherwise what are the "leaders" leading? Whoever heard of the sheep dictating the behavior of the shepherd? of workers their employer's? of children that of their parents? In a democracy, it is the shepherd who is being herded, and the embezzlement dimension endemic in the political class is not proof of its decadence BUT THE LAST REMAINING VESTIGES OF SELF-RESPECT AND HEALTH.
314. Philosophy, alas, did not make the trip across the Atlantic with the pioneers. She stayed back in the Old World. It seems philosophy has a thing against crossing large bodies of water, because she hasn't even crossed the English Channel yet. Perhaps someone should tell her that, at least in that direction, there is a tunnel now.
313. This "we", this fatal "we" is mankind's greatest error.
312. Likewise both Baudrillard and Plank, with their naive unqualified use of this "we", are perpetuating this whining idiocy of "Oh, why cannot everyone become enlightened!" As if it were in any way desirable for everyone to become enlightened! As if, if everyone indeed became enlightened, we wouldn't be facing an even harder problem: how to darken their minds with stupidities, prejudices, and superstitions! As if it were even possible for everyone to become enlightened! And if it were, then of course that "everyone" would extend to the poodles and the chimps! That's pretty much what these two idiots are more or less asking for the enlightenment of poodles and of chimps! All this talk about Nietzsche this and Nietzsche that, while still ignoring the fact that the slaves have to be somehow manipulated. And this is natural, because neither of them is strong enough to posit a goal. Manipulation, after all, only becomes necessary once one has willed an ends, and finds himself in the necessity of positing a means. If the end is simply the enlightenment of everyone, as is Baudrillard's and Plank's goal, which amounts to nothing else than their desire to be acknowledged by all of mankind as its enlighteners, this being the expression of the scribbler's will to power, then manipulation is superfluous, unnecessary, even harmful what is needed at that point is to drive into everyone's skulls the truths of which only the scribbler is conscious, in any way possible. Only the scribbler here miscalculates, and ignores one of cognition's fundamental truths: that it is not possible for everyone to understand everything. In view of that fact any agonizing over, melancholia, etc. proceeding from the inability of worms to understand quantum mechanics or whales the non-locality of space, or slaves the function of the will to power, is stupid. Any sadness proceeding from this has nothing to do with philosophy or science or intellectuality, but with the thwarting of the scribbler's will to power over the masses. That is all the scribbler cares about. And what would happen in the hypothetical case when everyone understood everything? The scribbler could not care less about that. He hasn't given the idea the slightest thought. For at that point he would at last be deified by the mass, by every single person in it (for even a single person not understanding something would make the scribbler sad). Afterwards, of course, there would be "wars on earth as there have never been before" and the entire system of trust and exchange which can be so easily manipulated by a higher being would have been blown apart but again the scribbler would not care about all of that because his future, in both fortune and reputation, would already be secure.
311. Baudrillard identifies himself with the slaves. This is his fatal mistake and what betrays him: when he keeps referring to everyone collectively as "we", "we", "we". That is why he cannot see the way out of the labyrinth, the way forward for as long as you do not separate the different threads, the different forces, including yourself, and give to each his own, the future will quite simply remain forever obscure to you.
310. What good would a photograph you've taken be if you've forgotten what's depicted in it? And what good would it be if you haven't?
309. The purely physical desires, for any given level of technological advancement, can be quite easily satisfied. To give a shit about what happens on the other side of the planet, let alone the universe, on the other hand, requires a deep, powerful, raging intellectuality. Which is why no one apart from philosophers really does.
308. On subhumans calling war "inhuman", while in fact it is plain that there is nothing more human than war, since no other animals wage it. Humans are the ones who invented war, how could it be inhuman?
307. One can see in the Matrix movies how the artists have depicted a message which is the exact opposite to the meaning of the philosophical text by which they say they were inspired. But it is their message that the public is accepting because it is the most shallow and naive, and so the easier one to grasp. The shallowness of the artist and the public here meet, in the triumph of the calculated venality of the artist to satisfy this shallowness, this desire for vertigo on the public's part, to forget for a few hours the brute fact that, even without the matrix, they are slaves.
306. I think I have become incapable of jealousy. When I was younger I could occasionally get quite jealous, not of any specific individual, but of some imaginary "better man" than me, with whom my current sweetheart might fall in love and leave me. But as I became older, this feeling faded more and more into the background, until it has at last come to seem quite ludicrous. Humanity is so far from possessing a "better man" than me that, if they wanted to find one, they'd have to ask me to create him.
305. Woman always gets taken in most easily. She prefers the cinematic special forces commando to the real one, who may come home at any time in a bag, not to mention his manners, etc., compared to the actor who spends five days a week in the gym and the rest in coffee shops, muscles strictly for show. When the commando puts on makeup it is for camouflage. His job is not to put on a show but to kill people.
304. Cheetahs belong to the same biological family as lions, but they are faster. Weaker at close quarters, but faster; just as blacks are faster than whites, but weaker at longer distances, which is thinking.
303. 3D printers. Baudrillard would have loved them. I can see him sitting in front of his TV all day long waiting for massacres to go down so that he could write about them, all the while cackling like a rabid parrot that "He told us so! He told us so! He told us so!"
302. Insofar as creation presupposes destruction, the greatest creation of all, the universe, presupposes the greatest destruction, something the optimists, being themselves relatively uncreative people, will never be able to grasp, because they can't, and therefore do not want to.
301. Our culture continues to grow because in the midst of democratic political degeneration a few individuals proudly and unapologetically continue the tyrannical, despotic tradition in businesses, armies, universities, sports teams, cultural clubs, the arts, and so on. If democracy were instituted in every field of human endeavor instead of merely in politics with the soldiers voting on what the army should do, students the school and universities, workers the business, the uncultured the arts, etc., civilization on this planet would be wiped out within a generation, and we would revert to barbarism if we didn't all starve to death well before that, that is, which we so obviously would.
300. He who fights monsters should see to it that he become a bigger monster.
299. Gerry Coulter doesn't understand what Baudrillard means by evil (as seen, for example, in his obituary of Robert McNamara, "To Speak The Name Of Evil"). Coulter uses the classical subhuman (and later Nietzschean) definition of evil = power. But Baudrillard's evil is not power, but the reaction to power, which is, of course, weakness (for if it weren't then power wouldn't be power either lol), consistent with his inversion of all Nietzschean terminology. Coulter is just not subtle enough to understand what Baudrillard is doing, so he stays with the classical definition, interpreting it moreover, in a moralistic fashion. Yes, the Allies were more evil (i.e. more powerful) than the Axis powers, and that's why they won; so what's your problem, dude?
298. There could never have been a Hundred Years' War between a homosexual and a heterosexual state. The heteros could just wait a generation and then simply waltz in. Which proves that homosexuals are indeed better suited than heterosexuals for peace which is to say for death.
297. Eady to McCauley: "Traveling makes you lonely?" Neil McCauley: "I'm alone, I am not lonely."
296. The constant whining about loneliness is yet another sign of how weak and degenerate subhumans are. There's now over seven billion of them on the planet, and they are still lonely! Just stand on a street corner, if you are lonely, for christsake, and talk to everyone who goes by; in a few days you'll have hundreds of numbers in your phone book: men, women, dogs, whatever. What would cavemen say if they heard your whining? But they are afraid to talk to anyone, as if there were some danger in it, as if everyone on the street were not as neutered and utterly harmless as they are. You can see how degenerate they are from the fact that they can't even bring themselves to talk to anyone. "Oh but the big cities make everyone hurry and be anonymous!" Dude, have you BEEN to a small town? All the young people (who are not already flatlining) are slitting their wrists from boredom. It is precisely in big cities that you can stand on a streetcorner and talk to strangers with impunity, whilst doing so in a small town will always be much more of a gamble on your social standing. But they keep whining, and whining, and whining, when all it takes is to open that door and step outside your house. I sometimes wonder if they still felt lonely when packed on top of each other by the thousands like sardines in the concentration camps. Someone should ask our German friends about that.
295. How totally ignorant of philosophy the Anglo-Saxons must have been to see Wittgenstein as God, when he was barely even a philosopher.
294. Immortality, if it were not absurd, would be the ultimate kind of procrastination, the deferring of the achievement of one's goals to infinity, the acme of weakness and of laziness (which are ultimately the same thing). Just look at the kind of people who yearn for it and you'll see. They require nothing less than an eternity to accomplish their goals, an infinite amount of time! which is simply a sly way of saying that their goals will NEVER be accomplished lol. Euphoric futurism is almost as decadent as nostalgia for "the good old days", whilst the REAL game is always being played RIGHT NOW, and the purpose of the study of the past and modelling of the future is not to get lost in contemplation of them but to bring them to bear on the present, which, if you've been paying attention to what I've been saying to you, you'd realize is what I just did.
293. Someone asks, "What was Baudrillard's political position?", and a thousand little heads bury themselves in his books to try and find out. But Baudrillard has clearly no positions, not only in politics, but anywhere. He stops at the exact point where one would normally declare a position and... wonders. Because positions presuppose goals, and goals presuppose healthy people, you see. Or, to put it another way, he has no POSITIVE position. The furthest he goes is to refute existing ones, because his teacher taught him the existing ones are bullshit. But his teacher also taught him one goal that is not bullshit, and which should have been Baudrillard's political position if he had been a good student, and learned his lesson well: "The Overman is the meaning of the earth..."
292. The Greeks have been said to have had philosophy in their blood. But the modern Greeks have nothing in their blood, not even blood. They do not even have blood in their blood.
291. No modern philosopher has actually cared about instructing future generations, not even contemporary ones all they have cared about is fame, and the money that goes with it. That is why they have made themselves so difficult to understand and covered their tracks so well. But when they tried to assimilate older philosophies in their own works they made a bad job of it, condensing entire books in a few sentences, or altogether omitting them, in their attempt to camouflage them and confuse us. Understanding became impossible then: one had to first FIND their sources on one's own, study them and understand them thoroughly, as thoroughly if not better than the "philosopher" himself, then go back and see where the covering up, the obfuscation, the jumping of steps had occurred. The relatively straightforward and difficult enough on its own! work of reading, contemplating and understanding turned into a deadly, labyrinthine gauntlet, a continual jumping back and forth, wearing and exhausting work fraught with peril. At the end though there was payback, for though it's true that countless individuals who attempted the task failed miserably, and either gave up altogether or ended up misunderstanding everything and producing mounds of secondary literature which merely served to aggravate the situation, by growing the labyrinth and making things increasingly difficult for future individuals who planned to make the attempt; yet the few or even just the one who managed to run the entire gauntlet and come out of it alive had a more solid and clearer understanding of everything than any other man who came before him or that will ever come. And for that this man will be eternally grateful to the pseudo-philosophers for making his life so hard for him, all the while crushing them and those who espouse their works, not with resentment, but with joy.
290. God has been thought of as creator, indeed the supreme creator, yet few have ventured to also think of him as the supreme destructor. But the time for that too will come.
289. Why is rhetoric of so much less value than writing? The orator only has to convince those who happen to be present when he delivers his oration, the philosopher has to "convince" the entire future. Oratorical skill is not merely irrelevant for us but a downright weakness. To HAVE to talk to "people" that is how weakness is defined for us. Between higher and lower, as I've already said, there can be no communication. That is the province, not of words, but of actions.
288. Demosthenes was the greatest orator of the ancient world, and yet there is not even a single line of his embedded in the collective consciousness to compare to the reams of those of the philosophers. A note on the philosophical, at any rate, value of rhetoric.
287. The "multiverse". They create more meaningless words to hide their incomprehension of existing meaningless words. And that's the only meaning to be found at the bottom of this word.
286. Gmail's "quotes of the day" are execrable, and are getting worse and worse as time goes by. Not a single literary giant is to be found among them. I fully expect Google to one day serve my children Kim Kardashian quotes. Goes to show the cultural level of the kind of people who staff the big IT companies.
285. And just as time is not infinite, because it flows into space, space is not infinite either, because it flows into time. And so it is with all the other dimensions.
284. Captain Philips. How absurdly quiet and peaceful things must currently be on the planet, that half the US navy chasing around three barefoot Somalians in a lifeboat can be considered a valid artistic subject.
283. The blacks have never recovered from the shock of being rounded up in the thousands and carted off across the world to work as the white man's slaves, and though I'd love to be proven wrong in this, my guess is they never will. Denial is no good here, it only makes things worse as long as they continue to avoid facing the reality of what happened, they will continue carrying around with them gigantic inferiority complexes that no amount of lying can cure. And the reality of what happened was that they LOST, by coming into contact with an immeasurably SUPERIOR CIVILIZATION. Now they speak English, and wear shirts and pants and even glasses, and they go to university, and do their best to become assimilated in this superior culture that they find themselves in, and yet the highest positions of this culture remain forever barred to them. We still await a single example of a black philosopher, or even simply of a black man who understands anything of philosophy, and if my guess is right we will be waiting forever which as much to say that we might as well STOP waiting and move on.
282. Searching for shops in Puerto de la Cruz using Google. Feels exactly like a GTA, only with more options. Did art imitate life here, or was it the other way around?
281. The film Highlander, a towering work of art, even though it muddles things a little in the end, is a perfect sketch of how the future will turn out and indeed of how the universe works. The immortal swordsmen fight among themselves, beheading each other and growing as they do so by absorbing the power of the slain, exactly as all animals grow in power by eating other animals. No metaphor, no image the film would have been even more true to life if the swordsmen had to actually devour each other. That is one subtle point in which the film could be improved, and the other comes right at the end, as I said, where the Overman simply uses his accumulated power for the "good" of the little people. Of course all of this good-doing is left out of the film, because it's 1. So boring that no one could even be bothered to write a script for it, and 2. So boring that even if anyone could have bothered to write a script for it no one would have paid money to see it. And so it is that the sequel, and all sequels thereafter, simply introduce a little trick by which the power struggle is reignited, again and again, for it is the only eventuality for which screenwriters can be bothered to write, and viewers will pay to watch. Of what exactly happens with the "good-doing" of the winning swordsmen everyone is as little curious as to what awaits the pseudo-Christians in their pseudo-Paradise. Death awaits them there, as indeed it does right here, but their kind of death no artist is willing to glorify, and that's why our cinemas, so far at least, have been so mercifully free of it, amen.
280. To "change the world" is so impossible it doesn't even make sense. Why? Because, as I've already explained, the concept world includes the concept time, i.e. at the level of the universe everything that can happen will always have already happened. When a subhuman says "I want to change the world", therefore, what he really means is "I want to slightly rearrange my immediate environment". And that is indeed something that one can do even a subhuman, in his own pathetic, retarded little way for better or for worse (and in his case, clearly, for the worse).
279. And if one day women do end up being treated equally with "men" (which is to say with effeminate males and fagots) inside the slave society, what will that prove, if not that the interior constitution of a slave society is such that masculinity is not a useful quality there? Something to think about on Women's Day.
278. What do subhumans mean when they speak of "nature"? The subhuman is incapable of grasping that he himself is a part of nature and thus everything he does will also be natural; that to transform one part of nature to something else will only be a transformation of one kind of nature to another. Technology they view as something anti-natural, yet bird's nests they see as natural. Man's home is anti-natural but the bird's is natural. One will find countless such little stupidities if one examines closely the subhuman's conception of nature. In the end, what the subhuman calls nature is something like a national park, a park in which all animals have been sedated, are constrained from preying on each other while being kept alive by concerned groups who are doing all their killing for them (or at any rate buying the food from other people who are doing their killing for them), have lost their instincts, and every last bit of dangerous behavior they might indulge in has been labeled with warning signs, whilst the entire thing has been hermetically sealed off from the rest of the universe and is being constantly scanned over by satellites and laser sensors, with giants robots ready to intervene at the whiff of the slightest anomaly in this extremely natural order of things. If the subhuman were to be left alone even for a few moments in a more natural nature such as a pristine piece of African bush, for instance he'd give himself a heart attack from nothing more than pure fear and this kind of nature the subhuman would never want! What good is nature if one can't conduct regularly scheduled tours in it? Thus reasons the subhuman. What good is nature that is not exploitable? That is not picturesque? That is dangerous? to the subhuman himself as well as to anything that dwells in it. Nature is a concept as inaccessible to the subhuman as power.
277. What an amazing game this is, from which it's not even necessary for us to forcibly remove the bad players. The old, the weary, the resigned (we call them pessimists and nihilists) they remove themselves.
276. What would a prehistoric man make of our panic-stricken desire for "meaning", and our "transcendental" despair that runs the whole gamut of depressive feelings from melancholy to pessimism to nihilism? In our eyes the savage would be a poor wretch who'd been dealt an unfair starting point in this game by fate (so unfair that he'd never run the risk of being sufficiently comfortable in his life to have enough free time to despair of it), while in his eyes we would simply be stark raving lunatics.
275. "He is too rigid in his views to be an intellectual", the subhumans will keep insisting. But 2,500 years ago, Confucius already had their number: "Only the wisest and stupidest of men never change".
274. Martin Luther King Jr.: "We've learned to fly the air like birds, we've learned to swim the seas like fish, and yet we haven't learned to walk the Earth as brothers and sisters..." How astonishingly naive would someone have to be to believe that this would be desirable? The bond of siblinghood only has value because of its rarity, after all, because of its uniqueness ultimately because of the existence of strangers, our feelings towards which should be (and are) largely indifferent. To treat everyone as a brother and a sister means to abolish brotherhood and sisterhood, means to annihilate this special bond which can lend so much strength, so much happiness and nuance to human life. Besides which, it would be impossible, because a human being only has so much attention to devote to others, which spread out among seven billion people would amount to nothing. Calling for universal brotherhood is effectively the same as calling for universal hypocrisy (which is par for the course, of course, for an underprivileged liberal liar). If your sibling needs you you are supposed to drop everything and fly across the world to help them at the drop of a hat: how could you possibly do this if you have seven billion of them? And if you don't do this, aren't you obliged to ignore also your real siblings when they need you, so as not to offend your seven billion adopted ones, and make baby Martin Luther cry? Or are your real siblings more siblings than the adopted ones? In which case why not just cut the crap and call things by their names? Meaning that the real siblings would be your "siblings" and the adopted ones would be "strangers", which would bring us right back where we started, before you began pestering us with your asinine bullshit! "Spiritual leaders", the herd calls them. In our language: retards and spiritual charlatans. So no, I don't want to be your brother because you are a stupid nigger who is not even worthy enough to pick my cotton for me. Now go fuck yourself.
273. The fact that there is not a single successful artwork whether a novel, movie or videogame depicting "utopian" conditions, proves that we, as mankind, DO NOT WANT THEM. The prevalence of so-called "dystopias" in art, on the other hand, proves what we really want and where we're headed...
272. HBD advocates say "there is no free will because your brain controls you". But my brain IS me. Like saying "there is no free will because you control you". I.e. there IS free will. Retards confused by wordplay.
271. Formula for charity by Michael Corleone: "We must learn from the philanthropists like the Rockefellers first you rob everybody, then you give to the poor."
270. Charitable people do not "give". Pure giving, as understood by the slaves, is pure fantasy it doesn't actually occur. All the giving of subhumans is a disguised taking; he who gives, always, in one way or another, gets back far more than what he gave, and is therefore a net taker. The charitable people all those wealthy actors and singers and industrialists, for instance don't lose anything of value by giving a few millions here and there. They have so many that they don't know what to do with them. They couldn't spend them if they wanted to these are obscene amounts of money we are talking about. What they need is a way to assuage the guilt and the bad conscience engendered by their success (since success in a slave society is something reprehensible) something which is worth a great deal more to them than the useless millions they give away, for they suffer from this guilt and this bad conscience they suffer to such an extent that they are having trouble enjoying what money they do spend in cruises, and on designer clothes, luxurious homes, fine dining, and in all kinds of hedonism and extravagant entertainment. Thus they give away some worthless pieces of paper which are not even pieces of paper anymore, but more like points as in a videogame in order to get what else? the same thing the pseudo-Christian gets at confession: absolution for their sins and the bad conscience that goes with them. Whereby they feel refreshed as if reborn, and can return to enjoying their mansions and fine dining with a clean conscience all the while, of course, children STILL keep dying all over the world, wars and pestilences are STILL raging; while they themselves quietly retreat to their little gated communities and private islands to continue enjoying the dolce vita. "At least I did all I could", they say to themselves, and to each other, while they prepare to make yet another crappy song or film another worthless trash movie by which they will scam yet more billions out of the world's slave population, only to turn around a little later and give a little of it back, as I explained, in order to be able to fully enjoy the obscene amounts of money that they WON'T be giving back. And moreover, this giving which is really a ruthless and cunning taking (a taking masquerading as a giving), adds a new dimension to their lives, which makes them even more enjoyable than they already were the competition amongst themselves over who will "give" more or at any rate BE SEEN to "give" more, because ultimately the effects of this little enterprise are measured in the same way that success is generally measured in their professional line of work: by the amount of noise and press coverage it generates.
269. "But does he have his own ideas?" My "own" ideas. This is how the subhuman sees ideas. But ideas are not like cars or houses. Ideas do not belong to anyone they belong to EVERYONE who has understood them. Indeed, inasmuch as ideas preexist and outlive a person, it would be far more accurate to say that HE belongs to THEM.
268. Sir Edward Shepherd Creasy, in his "Fifteen Decisive Battles of the World": "Two thousand three hundred and forty years ago, a council of Athenian Officers was summoned on the slope of one of the mountains that look over the plain of Marathon, on the eastern coast of Attica. The immediate subject of their meeting was to consider whether they should give battle to an enemy that lay encamped on the shore beneath them; but on the result of their deliberations depended, not merely the fate of two armies, but the whole future progress of human civilization." Such passages, and the historical moments they describe, are utterly unintelligible to the slaves. They will even go as far as to contend that the culture that won, the culture that gave them everything, and to which they owe their very existence, is equal to the one that was defeated...
267. Joseph Heller can't seem to wrap his head around the idea of war. "War is absurd" is the meaning of Catch-22; and indeed, in the individualist era it becomes impossible to understand the past, when the highest man is no longer the war hero but the actor pretending to be one, but who, if faced with a real gun, would run away screaming like a girl. Impossible for the slave to understand sacrifice. And naturally enough: his inability to sacrifice himself is the reason he became a slave in the first place. When the individual becomes his own agent and any kind of hierarchy, any kind of higher structure, is devalued, sacrifice becomes absurd. What would you sacrifice yourself for, when you yourself are your own end? To sacrifice yourself for yourself would be nonsensical, and that's why no one does it.
266. Nietzsche was such a lucid individual that even his madness letters make perfect sense.
265. In a game ressentiment can often be lacking simply because the loser can laugh defeat away by claiming to be playing just "for fun" (as if winning were "unfun" but that's another story). Defeat here is not such a big deal precisely because games test only narrow aspects of our being, and no single game is sophisticated enough for its outcome to sufficiently define a person. But as the game grows to encompass more and more dimensions of life, it becomes increasingly harder to discount the shame of failure and the rising ressentiment by propping up your self-esteem by your success in activities outside the game. When the game finally reaches the level of the universe, ressentiment is unavoidable and automatic, having at last become equivalent with the concept of defeat. Any attempt to deny or rationalize away the ressentiment at that level, is merely a further symptom of ressentiment.
264. And all of them, of course, are right. The weak man sees God as something that's behind him because he's too weak and useless to contribute anything to his creation, the average man does not see God at all because he's too busy working among the gears and levers of the machine to see what the machine is for (or even to realize that there is one), and the strong man sees God as something that's ahead of him, something that he creates, because he's standing at the top of the machine directing everyone's efforts, and thus contributing the most, and hence commanding the best view.
263. The weak man sees God as something that's behind him, something that created him; the strong man as something that's ahead of him, something that he creates. And the average man, the spiritually barren scientific and quasi-scientific blockhead and cabbage-head, does not see God at all.
262. Through the microscope you can see the flux, through the telescope the Eternal Return. But the subhuman has no time for microscopes and telescopes, any more than for real books; "he works six days of the week", as Voltaire has bluntly put it, "and on the seventh goes to the inn". Try to keep that in mind next time you attempt to have a conversation with him.
261. "So what, then, ultimately, is his position?" That you are all a bunch of fagets. A bunch of filthy, ugly, cowardly, lazy, uneducated, uncouth, lying, hypocritical, effeminate, dumb-as-a-rock fagets, and consequently not only deserve every last thing you are currently getting, but a whole lot more than that, which is precisely what you'll get when the time has come for me and my descendants to take over.
260. On the "red pill", the "blue pill" and "unplugging from the matrix". The implication is that the matrix (i.e. modern society) is an evil machine constructed to exploit them and make them miserable. But how is it your employer's fault if you APPLIED for a job YOU DIDN'T WANT TO DO? And not only you applied for it, but you moved mountains to get it! You lied in your CV to maximize your chances of being hired, you lied TO YOUR EMPLOYER'S FACE that you would love to do the work. You even bought books and went to seminars designed to help you maximize your chances of duping your employer into hiring you. And so he hired you! He asked you to join his team! He brought you into his professional family. He believed that you loved the activity, and that it was your number 1 favorite thing in the world to do, and he TRUSTED you with a position which, for him, was integral to the success of his plans for the future. And you lying little maggot have the nerve to come back and blame the poor little business owner FOR BEING DECEIVED BY YOUR FUCKING LIES. I've said it once before: violence is the only answer. Concentration camps and gas chambers. Any of you fucking pricks continue lying, and we'll execute every motherfucking last one of you.
259. All the best prophecies are, and have always been, the self-fulfilling ones.
258. Torrent sites are utterly flooded with rips of shitty Indian films. Hollywood makes 99% of the world's quality films and "Bollywood" makes something like 0.00001%, yet MORE THAN HALF of the latest screeners on any given torrent site are Indian. I have to keep scrolling past countless pages of such inimitable masterpieces as "Krrish 3", "Ivan Veramathiri", and "Aata Aarambam" until I find a proper movie. God help us when the standards of living of the billions of Indians and Chinese reach ours. Between them on one side, and the fags, the hipsters and the feminists on the other, we'd be lucky if we get a single decent movie a year at that point. I can hardly think of a better reason to try to MAINTAIN the current inequality than this.
257. Does anyone remember the political parties, let alone individual politicians, of past centuries? While everyone remembers the conquerors and dictators just fine! That is how the slaves pay homage to those they supposedly revere by entirely forgetting them...
256. The Israeli government is being accused of attacking, murdering, stealing, lying, etc., which is to say of performing the proper work of government. In a turn of world-historic irony only the Jews, the perennially stateless people among the powers of the Western world, still seem to remember how to govern. And why not attack the Arabs? Why not lie to them, steal from them and murder them? After all, one Jew is worth 10,000 Arabs. The only thing we can reproach the Jews with is that they haven't called on their American buddies to carpet-nuke the entire Middle East already. Just think of how much trouble we'd be spared if all those bearded retards and towelheads were exterminated (seriously, a towel for a hat in the middle of the desert? How much more proof do you need that they are retarded? Or full-body black dress? Is it supposed to be a compulsory weight-loss scheme for women?) Inbred illiterates. Just send the B-2s to clean the place up already and then ship in a bunch of Chinamen to dig up our oil for us, problem solved.
255. On philosophy being an emergent property of the sciences. Neither Wittgenstein nor the scientists can grasp this. They cannot even grasp the concept of emergence, after all, how could they hope to grasp this?
254. Once more on immortality. Let's put it this way: in order to travel in space you need to spend time. Everyone understands this. Well, conversely they should also understand that in order to travel in time you need to spend space. And since there's no such thing as "free space", since all space is taken up by things, and since moreover all things are alive, in order to travel in time you need to spend things, i.e. to CONSUME LIFEFORMS. So, want to see it to next week? You'll need to consume air, water, and some lifeforms. The further in time you want to make it, the more lifeforms you'll need to consume, and therefore to make it to "forever" (i.e. to become immortal) you'll need to consume ALL lifeforms. All water and oxygen in the universe, all organic matter, or energy if you want to think in terms of "artificial intelligences", machines and cyborgs. There's no way around this: what I am saying is merely conservation of energy applied to a finite spacetime environment. It is, moreover, common sense. Sorry futurists and transhumanists, but your idea of immortality is retarded. There's something other than disinterested scientific speculation that's hiding behind your frantic, desperate quest for it: a small quantum of power and consequent dissatisfaction with yourselves. But we'll get to that eventually.
253. He who knows believes with a belief that the believer for his part simply finds unbelievable.
252. The fact is, most of the time I don't even feel like writing. There are so many other things I'd rather be doing with my time, so many things I enjoy far more than writing even sleeping, after a long day of traveling, or of playing games and sports, or even of reading. I do have my moments, when I feel an urge to write and revel in it, but for the most part I write out of a sort of pity at the state of philosophy and general human understanding.
251. Vernor Vinge is an utter imbecile and his idea of the "technological singularity" an absurd misunderstanding of the nature of reality and culture. But allow me to walk you through my thought process.
250. In Paradise there will be no thinking because thinking is an activity that presupposes flux, and flux presupposes conflict. But lack of conflict is Paradise's essential feature! therefore lack of flux, therefore lack of thinking. Therefore thinking beings will not be possible there. Which is why it was such a stroke of genius on the part of him who said that only the "poor in spirit" will inherit Paradise. Indeed!
249. Immortality is a bogus idea that only seems credible if one has a very primitive understanding of time. More specifically, if one thinks of time as an idealized dimension that exists apart from all the rest. But we know today that time and space are inextricably bound up, so to extend oneself infinitely in time would also mean to do the same in space, i.e. to crowd out all other lifeforms and destroy them, until the only lifeform, indeed the only thing (since all things are alive) left in the entire universe would be oneself! "And why would this not be possible for someone like an Overman?", would at this point be a fair question. Because "no player can be greater than the game itself" (Rollerball). Because "absolute power" is a contradictio in adjecto. Because The Intelligence of Evil wouldn't let him. Because "nothing has existence in itself, nothing exists except in dual, antagonistic exchange" (Baudrillard). Take your pick. All these expressions, and many more besides, state the same thing: the fundamental rule of the game. That there must be an opponent.
248. That no one apart from philosophers is really capable of understanding philosophy can be seen by considering how they teach it at the universities. Being unable to sort out what is right from wrong, they simply teach everything. Now imagine how things would fare with any of the sciences if they followed the same prescription, and the state of modern philosophy and the public's utter disdain and ridicule of it should not be that hard to understand and sympathize with.
247. The world of the intellect can be thought of as a pyramid built out of interconnected parts (the individual ideas). Complex, treacherous and multifaceted at the bottom the labyrinth ; simpler and more straightforward the higher up you go. And at the top, quite naturally, there's nothing.
246. The "genetic lottery". As if any luck at all had been involved in all the sacrifices that a superior line has made. The aristocrats thought the opposite way, and luck was furthest from their minds when cold-bloodedly calculating the decisions that would shape the fortunes of their families. For them, it was all about breeding. "If you come from a good family you will be good, and seen clearly all good people come from good families" this is what every last one of them believed in. Those who beg to differ and love pointing out exceptions (as if they disproved the rule) look only at an individual and his parents, myopically, as subhumans generally do. But take stock of the history of thirty generations, and it's all there. No room for "luck" there it is not due to luck that humans run the planet today instead of porcupines, and if a porcupine says to itself "it was only due to bad luck that I wasn't born human", the humans can do no more than shake their heads and laugh at the porcupines' hilarious understanding of evolutionary biology.
245. In this sea of opinions most individuals seek for a rock to cling on to, while others are the rocks.
244. Why does James Bond never fail with women? (at least in the movies; he fails once or twice in the books, because the women are lesbians lol). A rash answer would be because that's what the artist glorifies: the ability to easily get women. But the artist also glorifies danger and action, and Bond regularly gets the shit kicked out of him and fails. He ultimately always succeeds, of course, but only after two hours of constant struggle and setbacks. And yet with women he succeeds almost immediately, without even trying, because what the artist is trying to say to you is, "Women sure are great, but ultimately unimportant. They are to be used and discarded like so many gadgets. The only things that are important, and consequently worth fighting for, are country, danger... and play."
243. "Capital exploits me" means "I want to take from others without giving back", otherwise known as "the philosophy of gimme, gimme, gimme".
242. The meaning of rape, in our own species as well as in all others, is that the child is more important than the mother. And thus it is at last that even rape comes to receive God's sanction.
241. There's always a single concept to be found at the bottom of every philosopher's philosophy. With Heraclitus it's flux, with Schopenhauer will, with Stirner the ego, with Kierkegaard faith, with Nietzsche power, while with Baudrillard it's seduction and with me immersion. But what is the quest for power if not the way in which the immersed ego maximizes its influence in the flux by having faith in itself while following its seduced will? And I could easily add Plato's forms, Spinoza's Nature, Hegel's spirit, and all the rest. Hell, even Wittgenstein's silence (via way, perhaps, of Shakespeare) will have a place in my elaboration of the ultimate form of thinking by the time I am done. My masterstroke will be the inclusion of even all the abortive half-concepts and pseudo-concepts floating around in the swamp of the subhuman brain they too will have a place in the grand scheme of things (though as befits the ideas of small, tiny creatures, theirs will naturally be a very small, very tiny place) and all the rest, beyond that point, will be silence.
240. They don't think, therefore they don't exist.
239. True progress, in every single field, comes slowly. All good things which is to say all genuine competence from the most physical to the most spiritual, come slowly. The speed and suddenness with which money can come and go proves that it is something of little account and, when lost, easily replaceable.
238. The glaring problem in Kierkegaard's philosophy, aside from its religious trappings, is its reliance on the leap of faith. There can be no "leaps" in the flux; all processes are continuous, and strength is accumulated little by little, step by step. "Leaps" are like miracles: the desire to get something out of nothing (i.e. without having to exert yourself). Desiring a LEAP is merely a symptom of being incapable of taking the next STEP.
237. No democracy has ever been created out of love: out of love one creates kingdoms and empires. The inaugural act of despotism is to raise up (by creating the higher caste), that of democracy to pull down (by destroying it).
236. A bunch of scruffy ruffians shouting incoherent slogans in the street is all it takes to get democratic politicians to modify their policies. Proof they don't really believe in them since they can't even be bothered to defend them. Meanwhile, dictators have actual backbone and behave far more admirably. Say what you will about them, but they at least are willing to fight for their beliefs, and to even kill or to be killed for them, if needed.
235. The most important thing in judging the grammatical validity of a sentence is how it sounds. If it doesn't SOUND good, it's wrong, even if all the grammarians in the world can find no fault with it. If it does sound good, on the other hand, a good writer will use it no matter what the grammarians might say, and they will have to modify their grammar afterwards to account for how he used it. Speaking comes first, even historically, and grammar much later, not the other way around, as Chomsky and his followers still seem unable to understand. Woe to the race of beings who waited for grammarians to invent a language before they began to talk! Woe to the child who must learn their rules before being allowed to open its mouth and say "mommy"! Language is a living thing, and what the Chomskyans are busy "analyzing" is so unreal it's not even dead. Theory comes AFTER action, not the other way around, and a priori knowledge of the kind which all philosophers (aside from our lord and master) have been hitherto fond of is no concept that can be grasped at all but a contradictio in adjecto.
234. "Do you think people deserve a second chance?" No, because there's no "second", no repetition; what comes next is always a new thing and that's a good thing.
233. Either you are interested in the work, in which case money is irrelevant, or you are interested in money, in which case the work is irrelevant. There is no middle ground here.
232. Bacon versus Descartes. Descartes wants "absolute knowledge" meaning absolute power and that immediately. Bacon doubts the possibility of absolute knowledge, and settles for its gradual increase. And we all know who won by now, I hope?
231. Schopenhauer: "The wise have always said the same things, and fools, who are the majority, have always done just the opposite."
230. "Everything is subjective" means that everything can be perceived from a variety of perspectives indeed an infinity of them it doesn't mean that all perspectives are equal. From the plurality of subjects it by no means follows that all subjects are equal! But that is precisely what the subhumans contend. With a terrifying consistency they take the idea from the philosophers and utterly pervert it, until it comes to mean the exact opposite to what it meant at first. For if all viewpoints were indeed equal they would have to be identical! i.e. there would not be an infinity of viewpoints but only a single one! i.e. there would not be subjectivity! Subhumans: Standing Every Human Idea On Its Head Since The Invention Of Speech.
229. It's always a bright and sunny day on planet earth, it's just a question of having enough elevation.
228. The obsessive hatred, bordering on psychosis, against products i.e. against man-made objects seems to be the hallmark of the pseudo-intellectual today. Hatred of consumption, a problem which no sane, healthy person has ever had. As if food and clothes, as if eating or dressing were bad. Such is the pseudo-intellectual's craving to appear to be raging at something, that he will rage at life's basic necessitities if need be.
227. Philosophical books are the ultimate kind of self-help books, but philosophy is not for the kind of people who read self-help books.
226. The scientists' greatest goal would be "to create life". But if you give me a girl and nine months I can create life for you right now, without science's help. Therefore either the scientists are morons who've no idea what they are talking about, or what they are actually trying to create is far more complex and advanced than mere "life".
225. When all you want to do is survive, you goal is life (your life is your goal). When you want to dominate, your goal includes your life. Life in this case becomes merely another tool, another pawn to be thrown in the game at the appropriate time. Only the latter approach can achieve something. To merely remain alive is not much of an achievement, even insects can manage that just fine.
224. Deleuze's "pluralism" is merely another name for perspectivism. He calls perspectivism "philosophy's greatest achievement". I.e. the hypothesis that others exist, that the philosopher is not alone, is philosophy's greatest achievement. Why is that? Because it is in this realization that the best way to manipulate the flux, i.e. "the others", lies. If you don't even believe that anyone else besides you exists (solipsists belong here) you can't very well manipulate them now can you! And believing that others exist means believing other viewpoints exist, i.e. viewpoints different from your own. The best way to increase your power, in other words, lies first of all in recognizing the same desire and capacity in others. But recognizing the existence and the will of the Other is not the same as submitting to it which is what the subhumans are conflating with their false interpretation of the concept of pluralism which they borrowed from the philosophers, and afterwards perverted.
223. And how can there be racism if there are no races?
222. A decent article, at last, by The Economist, arguing that affirmative action is a bad thing. What they are essentially saying is that anti-racism is racist, but they are too dumb to grasp this, and too timid to say it even if they did somehow manage to grasp it. So you get hilarious flip-flopping that goes from, on the one hand claiming that "certain groups have suffered great injustices", while on the other coming to the conclusion that the best thing to do about it is nothing lol. And that is indeed the best thing to do, because revenge ("repairing the injustices!") is at best a highly inefficient and ultimately downright counterproductive way to improve your lot, which is precisely the insight expressed in the well-known adage that "the best revenge is living well" (which is to say the best revenge is no revenge at all).
221. Hawking wants to "know the mind of God". But can a worm know YOUR mind? Even if you outright TOLD it what's in it, what would the worm understand? To know the mind of God you must be God! You must have, in other words, the right hardware. It is idiotic to talk about software when the hardware that can run it is lacking.
220. It is customary to bewail the condition of one who has "nothing left to live for". Personally, I find far more tragic the fate of him who has nothing left for which to die.
219. "God sent us this difficulty to test us." And the subhumans aren't wrong. Considering how weak they are, and how by "God" they essentially mean "the rest of the universe", it is indeed the rest of the universe which "sent" them whatever they say was sent to them since it's stronger and takes the initiative, and it tests them for the same reason.
218. Placing yourself at risk is living, the rest is television.
217. The "Arab Spring". Proof of how stupid the Arabs are that they do not take offense at such a flagrant insult. They even use the term themselves. "Your whole history has been a bleak winter, and it is only when you deny your entire past and accept our decadent values that your spring can finally begin."
216. A: "At the end of the day, it's merely a theory." B: "But quantum mechanics is also 'merely a theory' and we make lazors with it."
215. Is the pen really mightier than the sword? Lichtenberg says the opposite ("A handful of soldiers is always better than a mouthful of arguments"), and then seems to change his mind again ("With a pen in my hand I have successfully stormed bulwarks from which others armed with swords have been repulsed"). The truth is that the two have different functions. They are not at odds, but rather complementary. The purpose of the pen is to put the swords in motion, and the purpose of the swords is to clear enough space so that the pen can have some peace and quiet to do its work. It's not an either/or situation; for best results you need both working together in harmony. Conversely, writings that don't lead to action (i.e. the pseudo-intellectuals') are worthless, and actions whose results are not evaluated by thought (i.e. those of the "practical men", the "pragmatists", and other Anglo-Saxons) end up shortsighted, misdirected and doomed to ultimate failure.
214. I can't think of a greater tragedy than to not be able to achieve, or at any rate at least to aim, for anything more. But that's precisely the one thing that's impossible in this game, and all its other rules are mere ramifications of this one. Baudrillard called it "The Intelligence of Evil", Reversibility, or simply Evil. Excuse me, master, but I can't think of a more apt name with which to baptize this state of affairs than Paradise.
213. There's no more flagrant demonstration of the ressentiment of the liberals than their obvious view of the entire past, not only man's, but all of nature's, as a mistake. Wars, conquerors, hierarchies, and even masculinity itself were all bad and evil, including all other animals (the jungle), and even the stars themselves for having the temerity to explode (it goes against "conservation" and respect for the environment) never mind that without wars and hierarchies there'd be no civilization any more than without exploding stars there would be life. "The basest creature will see the domain of evil everywhere" (Nietzsche). Conversely, the highest creature would see no evil at all. The concept of evil would seem to it to be something ridiculous and absurd.
212. To "unravel the mysteries of the universe" means: "to become the lifeform that ravels them".
211. The worst place for ressentiment is on the internet. It's absolutely raging. Why? The intensified communication factor. The more you learn of those above you, the more it hurts. A man alone in a cave in the middle of nowhere would have no ressentiment not the mental kind at any rate. Which goes to show why hermits of all ages chose to withdraw from worldly affairs and live in isolation.
210. Alzheimer's convention in Love and Other Drugs. See how happy the convention makes her? "Life is beautiful", etc. If the entire species had Alzheimer's no one would be sad. I.e., their sadness is ressentiment. There's nothing wrong with Alzheimer's per se anymore than there is about us not being able to breathe underwater. It's just that very few people have it, and that's what makes them sad. But "misery loves company" is ressentiment. Real happiness does not require company. Indeed, at the highest levels it exists in near-complete solitude.
209. Women, at least, have their priorities straight. No other creature in the land worships power as well as they do.
208. Wittgenstein basically wanted to shut up all talk of spirituality. This desire was at the heart of his involvement with philosophy. "Think what you want, but at least shut up about it and spare the rest of us of your asinine claptrap." No wonder he became the poster child of the spiritually barren Anglo-Saxons. But Baudrillard doesn't mention him even once.
207. One doesn't fight weaker creatures, one brushes them aside.
206. Mistakes of the subhumans. They immediately interpret the idea of subjectivity as giving them free reign to support any viewpoint that they want, no matter how incoherent, ignorant and wretched. Sure, the ant too has its own perspective of things, and therefore its own subjective reality, but who gives a shit about the reality of an ant? The greater the man the greater and hence the more objective his perspective, and therefore the idea of subjectivity does not undermine the absolute rule of inequality in the universe but is precisely the mechanism by which it comes about.
205. In a society of slaves the only type of noble man remaining is the criminal.
204. To govern is to control. The greater government therefore will be the one that controls more. It really is as simple as that and there is not the slightest room for doubt here. To object merely means to have not understood the definition of the word. That a particular government may decide that in a particular area it may be beneficient to allow its subjects some degree of freedom is not an objection to this proposition, since to ALLOW freedom in some area is also an aspect of control. A government, on the other hand, which has powers TAKEN AWAY FROM IT, is a weak, and therefore bad government. It makes all the difference in the world if the decision for the degree of freedom to be allowed is taken from government HQ or from the rabble.
203. True democracy has the same endgame as true anarchy: the end of control, which is to say of government. At which point we arrive once more, not at equality, but in the jungle, which is to say the very starting point of a new autocracy.
202. The subhuman is neither pessimist, nor idealist, nor nihilist, nor any other -ist. Plato was idealist. The subhuman is merely subhuman. That is to say he misinterpretes and misuses and abuses every term, but the only reality you'll find at the bottom of all his sayings and all his doings is no idea or ideology, but his extreme vulgarity.
201. It is precisely because complaining pays, in every sense of the word, that it has become so popular. In the jungle there's no complaining precisely because no one pays attention to it. Our tendency to reward complaining has created more complainers. If we started punishing it instead, we'd end up with far less.
200. "Life's not fair" means: "I don't like myself" and nothing more than that.
199. Orwell disliked military parades, but even the worst of those seem like artistic masterpieces (as Leni Riefenstahl showed, to the eternal chagrin of the pseudo-intellectuals) compared to the sheer ugliness of a demonstrating mob. Demonstrations should be banned, if for no other reason, on purely aesthetic grounds. But there are other reasons too. The demonstrators are not brave enough to pick up weapons, nor intelligent enough to write down their complaints. If I were president I'd promise to read an essay written by the demonstrators' leaders. But to ACT on it? That decision would remain mine. What else did you elect me for? This is democracy: The 51 percent calls the shots and the president goes with them otherwise he doesn't get reelected. To care for the 49 percent who didn't vote for him is not only stupid, but anti-democratic: a betrayal of his constituents (and constituents too stupid to realize when they have been betrayed). NO DEMONSTRATOR HAS EVER HAD GROUNDS ON WHICH TO COMPLAIN. I will repeat it: demonstrations are anti-democratic; a vocal minority bullying the government to overlook and act against the wishes of the civilized majority (which has already expressed its wishes THROUGH THE BALLOT). It should be written into every constitution: demonstrations are illegal. Not to speak of throwing rocks at police officers. Merely to call them names is reason enough for prison time; any kind of assault on them for a death sentence handed down on the spot, Judge Dredd-style. Now that'd be cutting-edge democracy at work: the democracy of the future.
198. The "consumer society" should have been called the "slave society", since there's nothing wrong with consuming, it is indeed the basis, the prerequisite, of all growth. Marx was at least healthy in focusing on production; Baudrillard's obsession with consumption is neurotic. Why not reduce it to zero and die of thirst in a few days, you fucking nihilistic little prick? Better yet just stop breathing; oxygen too is something that we consume.
197. The only genuinely interesting thing on the internet, ultimately, is theory.
196. The beggar doesn't beg because he has no other choice would he beg in the jungle? who would he beg? he begs because YOU are around. It's a form of attack. He takes your highly developed sense of empathy and uses it against you. If the lifeforms around him were not so highly empathetic, he'd look for other ways of sustaining himself. The beggar then is feeding off your empathy, a strategy which even a starving jungle rat has too much self-respect to employ he'd never stoop so low. And it's hypocritical to say that you pity beggars, since you create them by your actions. Wealth is a relative concept, after all. Hate seeing poor people? Then stop being rich. Stop "doing well". Better yet, just kill yourself and make all the beggars happy.
195. A newspaper's front page, full of insipid, wretched perspectives, or shallow celebrity spectacles and manufactured non-events while the true triumphs of mankind (which at the highest levels are all intellectual) go utterly unnoticed and unpraised.
194. What is ultimately to be done about death, misfortune, etc.? A hypocritical question, since all your happiness has come from the unhappiness of others. You don't really care about what can be done about "death", "misfortune", etc., but only about YOUR death, YOUR misfortune, etc.; and whatever can indeed be done about them necessarily results in the increase of the death and the misfortune of countless others. So the answer to their question is "Go screw yourself you hypocritical subhuman scum", and what can be done about it is to stick a loaded gun to their fucking heads and pull the fucking trigger.
193. How unfathomably degenerate the subhuman is can be seen from the fact that in order to help him catch a whiff of the true constitution of reality, you must instruct him to do such an utterly idiotic thing as to stop eating.
192. "Power corrupts." Actually, weakness corrupts, power makes healthy. If you don't believe me just stop eating (food too is a form of power) and then take a look in the mirror after a week. That's what corruption looks like. Puffy cheeks and a well-stocked cellar are health.
191. The neg does indeed work, at least in the short term. But as a long term strategy it's a terrible idea: obsessing about taking value away from others instead of bestowing it on them! As one of the more perceptive PUAs put it, "What are you going do, once she's your girlfriend, neg her every morning before getting out of bed?" Instead of spending your time lowering other people's value you should be building up your own. The truth of it can be seen by observing the highest-value men (or at least the kind of men which women regard as having the highest value which, though there is overlap, is not quite the same thing) celebrities of all kinds who never need to neg: indeed, they never need to use any PUA tactic whatever (or who can even use the opposite of every tactic PUAs advocate and still get the girl, which proves that PUA tactics are ultimately only of value when used as smokescreens by low-value men). The highest value men do not need to spend a second thinking about women, since women naturally flock to them. They only spend time thinking about how to deal with other men which, my dear PUAs, you should have realized by now, is where the real game's at.
190. The entire evolutionary strategy of the subhuman is, quite literally, to bamboozle you with sound waves. Until you don't know which way is up. Until black is white and white is black. Until you'll gladly bend over and let him fuck you up the ass (it's called "redistribution"). Previous lifeforms used their limbs to get what they wanted; the subhuman can get by with just his mouth.
189. The seriousness with which the slaves regard the scenario of the assassination of their presidents would be hilarious if it weren't tragic, for it is precisely their presidents' complete and utter uselessness which would make such an eventuality a perfect non-event. To assassinate Hitler would be to assassinate the Third Reich, and so it has always been with leaders, who have always been unique and simply irreplaceable but just ask yourselves what exactly would change if any given subhuman "leader" were assassinated today. Nothing. Absolutely nothing. For it is precisely the secret ultimate goal of the democratic movement to create a society that functions without a leader, ideally without leadership at all.
188. You are never closer to someone, than when you are fucking or killing them.
187. Economist article on scientists trying to comprehend what is the use of religions. Tiny little men who hop around with calculators, trying to figure everything out with them. Zarathustra's last men, utterly barren spiritually, an alien race right out of a bad science fiction novel, no connection with humanity whatsoever. On the one side you've got women and fags with new-age pseudo-spirituality babble, on the other religious fanatics with millenia-old ridiculous beliefs, and on the other the microscientific flatheads and cabbage-heads who view belief as an equation to be solved and the entire past as an error. We are paying dearly for the failure of philosophers to take control of the masses and legislate education. The philosopher-king has been lacking ever since Plato imagined him. Why? But consider the requirements. He is an almost impossible being. A man with the body of Alexander and Nietzsche's brain. The Overman. Our God.
186. Baudrillard: "The world is not what we think, it is what thinks us in return" gigantic, unforgivable mistakes until the very last moments of his life. For it is obvious that the world is what we think AND what thinks us in return TAKEN TOGETHER. The world is everything! How hard can that be to understand? But Baudrillard, like all the French, was never averse to sacrificing logic for the sake of a good soundbite, and like the rest of them he paid the price, which was to have his books riddled with nonsense. So his formulation sounds cooler than mine, I'll give him that much, only there's this little problem with it that his formulation's STUPID. But all that needs to be said on the differences between me and him has already been said in The Gay Science §82.
185. There is no death, only life; and everything is life. What distinguishes the two is not a binary opposition but degrees of power. Power, however, as we've seen, is not something you take but something that you give, and death is the means by which you give it.
184. "True stories" means bad art. It is precisely what's not true in it that makes an artwork art.
183. All the hatred against the NSA is contemptible; I would be proud if my country had an intelligence agency as cool as the NSA. After all, what else is an intelligence agency supposed to do than gather information? Everyone does it, and you little maggots are outraged by the Americans because they are doing it better than everyone else. As for your privacy, no one gives a shit about it. You think we WANT to read about the inane ant-like existence that you call your life? Your correspondence makes us DEPRESSED. The only reason we are gathering it is because it's the best way to achieve our objective not to protect you! but the interests of the nation! And YES, WE are the ones who determine the interests of the nation because we work for the NSA and you, fuckface, do not and never will (because you are a fuckface). Get it?
182. Sigmund Freud once wrote that, "All energy is sexual". So before the evolution of sexuation a billion years ago there was no energy in the universe. Smart man. But that's what happens when the only thing on your mind all day is dildos.
181. The utter seriousness with which the entire Hollywood elite (actors, directors, screenwriters) takes on comic book projects. The best artists in the world, and yet no shame in breathing life into "puerile power fantasies". Nowhere else in the world would this have been possible, because no one else is as serious about art today as the Americans.
180. I like machines as much as I like nature, if not more. This means: I like man-made things as much as I like non-man-made things. To say: "I don't like machines, I only like nature", would mean "I don't like man-made things, only non-man-made ones", which would be as much as saying "I don't like men", i.e. I am not a man or at least not a very good one. TO NOT LIKE MACHINES MEANS TO NOT BE HUMAN. IT IS PRECISELY OUR CAPACITY TO MAKE MACHINES THAT MAKES US HUMAN. To be shouted at the ears of every luddite.
179. "Do not hate us for our happiness" says the prince to Hippolite in The Idiot. But "Hate us for our happiness" would have been a higher thing to say.
178. Contradictions of the liberal scum: So and so (beauty, for example) is "merely" a social construct while at the same time extolling social values as higher than individual ones. Slave morality is always self-contradictory, and the time has come for us to understand exactly why.
177. And what does it say about a society that it expects social change to come from children? The only way that children would ever be allowed a say in a society is if there were no more men in it. Which is why the impact of students on the political stage before the twentieth century was exactly nil, whereas everyone today looks in precisely their direction when dreaming of "social change".
176. And why is it that students (i.e. children) always start leftist revolutionary movements, whereas army generals (i.e. men) always start fascist coups? What does that say about the respective systems of beliefs that motivate them?
175. It wasn't Lenin or Mao who were hungry, but the hundreds of thousands of peasants whom they indoctrinated. In Western societies there simply no longer exist enough hungry men to launch a revolution and, as long as democracy is functioning properly, there never will be. For this is indeed the hidden biological purpose of democracy: to keep the machine running, even on auto-pilot, when there no longer exists any individual or group of individuals capable of taking control. The auto-pilot is always less trustworthy than a good pilot especially in rough times but in the latter's absence it is preferable to the complete disintegration of the machine (anarchism).
174. All leftist revolutionary movements led by students in the twentieth century were children playing politics, to be distinguished from what happened in places such as Russia and China which were men playing politics. The politics in both cases were ressentiment politics, but the difference was that the coddled Western kids went nowhere (because they were coddled "one must need strength in order to have strength"), whereas the Russians and the Chinese succeeded because they were genuinely hungry. The Red Brigades kidnapped a few people. The Baader-Meinhof Gang shot up a few banks. But Lenin and Mao massacred millions and that's why they succeeded. Nothing has ever come out of student-led movements, and nothing ever will. The very fact of being a student of having enough time to concern yourself with knowledge means you don't even know what hunger is, you have not the faintest idea of the concept. Consequently all student-led political movements should be automatically laughed at. Baudrillard's elation at the sight of May '68 was pathetic, but at least he eventually grew out of it. To pay any serious attention to what students are saying or doing today is retarded.
173. Why the instinctive support of the underdog may be a noble, bad ultimately a bad idea. If planet Earth were all there was to the universe, this attitude would have been fine (indeed it'd be essential to the continuation of the game), but what if our species is an underdog in the greater scheme of things? Then all your efforts are against us. Condemning American militarism and "imperialism" is stupid but excusable, perhaps, when there are no external threats, but who would you turn to for protection if the aliens were to arrive today, the Swiss?
172. The feminine feelings being idealized and glorified in Twilight are wonderful, because perfectly complementary to the male.
171. I by no means intend to deny the subhumans their philosophy, I merely want to understand it, so as to finally place it within mine, as they have placed me and mine within theirs. Within my philosophy they are and always will be subhuman, within theirs I am... perhaps "evil".
170. A calculation is just another kind of guess. Which is to say, if it's a good one, an educated one.
169. The ultimate insult: a woman calling you a fag, as Alex Forrest does to Michael Douglas's character in Fatal Attraction. The complete contempt in which a woman holds anything unmanly shows up the falsity of both the feminists' pretensions, and the homosexuals' abjectness. For there is, of course, no more staunch proponent of manliness than woman, just as there is no greater lover of feminity than man.
168. The biggest threat today to Western civilization is... fagotry. It's bad enough that half of the population is women and they are all allowed to vote now if you add in the effeminate males, trannies, bona fide fags and the elderly, the actual manly count is negligible and no man actually VOTES.
167. Or: you can kill some people (the combatants), but not others (the non-combatants). But isn't this discrimination? Aren't people supposed to be equal? So why can't I just kill and rape whomever I want?
166. Or "war crimes". It's okay to kill someone but not rape them. Subhuman logic.
165. Not to speak of "war conventions". For war is obviously THE BREAKDOWN OF CONVENTIONS; a war played out according to rules and regulations would not be a war at all but merely another game. The slaves' desire to turn every aspect of life into routine culminates with this insane attempt of theirs to turn even war into a game.
164. The phraseology of liberal propaganda betrays an astonishing level of naivetι. E.g., "The American government is murdering, etc. etc." it is called WAR you fucking fagots, people are SUPPOSED to die in it. The first who should be murdered is whoever is incapable of grasping this simple fact. Whoever complains about war being murder should be murdered.
163. Ad hominems. Subhumans attack character first and never deal with arguments. We humans attack arguments first and character last, because each argument must finally be shown to have come from the corresponding type of character. Character and arguments are not unrelated, as the subhumans think. Shitty lifeforms have shitty arguments. And subhumans have none (because they are the shittiest lifeforms ever).
162. The only thing more annoying than people's Twitter accounts are dead links to deleted Twitter accounts. How ironic that by wisening up they create even more annoyance than when they were just being stupid.
161. I've no idea what it's like to scribble rubbish that will be instantly forgotten; how could I hope to ever truly understand anyone else? And how could they hope to understand someone whose every word, the moment he has set it down, becomes immortal.
160. Reading journalism is not reading, it is deferring to read. The only good thing that can come out of reading journalism is to realize how bad for you reading journalism is.
159. The relationship between necessity and desire mirrors that between determinism and free will. The best move (and indeed every move) is necessary when regarded at the level of the universe, but from the perspective of the individual who'll perform it (and from those of all his allies and adversaries who are going to feel its effects) it's not necessary at all, but merely what he has chosen and wants to do.
158. Favorite books. People need to distinguish between novels (i.e. artistic books) and proper books. If your favorite book is a novel you are an idiot.
157. A low blow is something unbecoming and distasteful, especially to a tall man. But when you are fighting short people there's no way around it you have to hit low.
156. "Freedom this", "freedom that" and then they wonder about universal pornography and the proliferation of all perversions. "Society is decaying" it isn't really, but what decadence there is in it is, for the most part, all your fault. And even that is giving you too much credit; you are not the cause of decadence but merely its expression. The cause of it, and indeed the cause of everything, is us.
155. A cook, a swimmer, a banker. A person that can be characterized by a single activity especially if he's any good at it is Zarathustra's inverse cripple. One exception, a philosopher, precisely because philosophy is not an activity in its own right but the sum of all others.
154. All training, physical and mental, is a gamble, a risk, is dangerous. Aim for more than you have in you, and you'll be broken. Aim for less, and you are wasting your time. Universal education is consequently a great error, and most people would have been better off if no one had ever tried to teach them anything.
153. Chris McCandless living in a bus, the "Grizzly Man" being eaten by his bears, the other dude sawing off his own arm with a pocketknife. Complete evolutionary failures. Incapable of operating so much as a coffee machine, they go into "the wild" (as if there were anything wilder than life on the edge in the big cities) and die by stumbling over the first rock they come across. Utter retards. Precisely because they can't cope with life in civilization they aren't even any good as slaves. They should "win" a trip to a Hunger Games/The Island-type space where they can be quietly and surreptitiously exterminated. Even for them it will be more fun than starving to death in an abandoned bus.
152. "The Life after Death Project" may as well have been called "The Contradictio in Adjecto Project". And that's about where I stopped watching.
151. The object is not something non-living, but simply everything that lies outside the subject. Only with this realization does "knowledge" (and eventually science...) begin, and it culminates when the subject comes to regard even itself as object ("I am my own simulacrum").
150. The Euros have no idea how to make a decent movie: just look at British films. No pacing, no excitement, no flow, nothing. And the ugliness, oh my god the ugliness. Not the faintest clue that your protagonists should be better looking than your fucking neighbors, at the very least. Why go to the movies then? To see ugly people? All I have to do is take the bus. Wake up you fucking eurotrash! movies are supposed to be exciting! "If I want a long boring story with no point to it I have my life." (Seinfeld)
149. A few more years and we'll be growing babies in labs. The usefulness of sexuality will soon be over which is why it is precisely now that it has become a "game".
148. Not "knowing what you want", at ANY stage of life, is pathetic. Only children can get away with not knowing what they want (because they don't know anything). No wonder women look down on men who don't know what they want. (And no wonder PUAs always pretend to women to know exactly what they want.)
147. Prometheus. It is supposed to contain all these "deep philosophical questions" whereas in fact it contains nothing but a couple of childish, outdated non-questions such as "where do we come from?", and do you "believe in God?" questions that have nothing to do with modern, twenty-first century philosophy. Where do we come from? there's not the slightest doubt about that: we come from apes who come from primates who come from single-cellular organisms, all the way back to the Big Bang. As for whether we come from "elsewhere", EVERYTHING comes from elsewhere at some point, so there's no mystery there. Even if something "greater" made us, that greater thing was made by combining smaller things, and so on and so forth. Subhumans have no interest in "deep philosophical questions" but merely in seeing action charades on a big screen, and the entire "did other lifeforms make us?" question has nothing philosophic about it but is merely a pretext, a setup, for a battle of us against yet another alien race. Nothing wrong with that it's great entertainment but to take it as a "deep philosophical question" is ludicrous. Same with the retarded questions about "belief in God", and any other such grossly outdated shit, which are anyway handled hamfistedly and awkwardly by the script. Prometheus is a good film, but it has nothing to do with philosophy for christsake at least not any more than any other film. In short, "deep philosophical questions" are only asked and answered in philosophical works, duh, and if you still expect show business people or novelists or journalists or clowns or gypsies or priests or politicians, or your fucking aunt Bertha, to pose, much less answer them, you need to have YOUR FUCKING DNA CHECKED.
146. Science fiction vs. fantasy. Fantasy is an attempt to freeze the past, to turn the ancients' understanding of the universe into art's reality, a nostalgic dream fueled by a distaste for and rejection of science. Hence fantasy inferior to science fiction, which celebrates and glorifies science. Hence why philosophical questions are so generally lacking in fantasy, whilst science fiction's rife with them.
145. From the narrow, restricted viewpoint of the present, you always have infinite choices (= free will), because choice is a mental process we use to imagine and decide upon possible courses of action, and hence can make as many of them as we want whereas at the level of the universe you only have a single one: the one you'll end up making (= determinism), because the concept universe includes the concept time. Thus does the Overman solve, in a single sentence, problems that have frustrated mankind's greatest thinkers for millennia.
144. The entire tragedy of slave life can be summarized in a single word: "retirement". But for the free man retirement from his goals is not something desirable but something that must be forced on him, and over his dead body no less. To take away from him his "work" one would be obliged to kill him.
143. David versus Goliath. But Goliath lost! He who loses, however, is weak there's no question about that; that's what weakness is: whatever loses. It therefore follows that the "evil" one in that story is not the one most commonly thought of as such.
142. Politicians, and especially the better, more successful ones, are beings of pure appearance. It's no use trying to discover what they "really" think: they don't think that's what pure appearance means; thinking is depth. That's why their books are so boring and useless, and why, years after retiring, when nothing is at stake any more, they can still be seen fervently defending their various "stances" on all these little non-issues that "defined" their careers, which no one even cares about anymore because nothing was really at stake in them in the first place. Not one of them ever lets the mask drop and starts going, "Hahaha, I've been fooling all of you all these years! I never believed a thing I said!", for they in fact "believed" in everything i.e. they believed that by saying these things they were maximizing their vote potential, and never spent a second more thinking about them (for on top of lacking the intelligence and education, they had neither the time nor the energy to do so; democratic politics are exhausting). Finally, the mask became them, and they will defend every last one of the sheer idiocies they spouted through it to their graves. The only thing that matters, that has ever mattered in their lives, is influence, "power" i.e., the routine administrative function of the slave society which they have mistaken for power which is why it is perfectly correct and proper to compare and judge them by it if one can be bothered with them long enough to judge them at all, that is.
141. No argument has yet convinced anyone who didn't want to be convinced. People are people and arguments aren't magic.
140. Susan Sontag's "Against Interpretation" does not mean against interpretation in the strict philosophical sense that a human would use it. In that sense, "against interpretation" would mean "against life", since all life is interpretation. It just means "against all those long exegeses which I don't understand and sound like bullshit". And in that sense, it makes perfect sense. Not that Sontag could grasp this.
139. Police work: for all the (sometimes admittedly justified) claims to bravery, danger, etc., police work is actually the opposite of that. A huge apparatus of repression erected by the herd instinct, but operated and indulged in by cruel cowards. The anarchists, by the way, are wrong on all counts. If cops are pigs the anarchists are the pig masters (for it is only in a society pacified through merciless police work that the anarchist can even exist at all). High above both of them towers the soldier. A chain of command, hierarchy, the sanctity of orders. Belief in an order of rank, reverence for a leader; with death not anathema, as with anarchists, or an accident or anomaly, as with cops, but part of the job description.
138. (By the way, it is totally natural that women, by and large, are horrified by children's deaths. What is not natural is that men have been feminized to a degree that they effectively feel the same way, and that they have allowed women's narrowmindedness, which in itself, and for the purpose for which women have been shaped by evolution, is praiseworthy, to lay hold of the whole of society and tyrannize it with the values of small and petty creatures.)
137. "But how can you think so cruelly about children?" Listen up here, sister: Children will die, no matter what you do. Children have always died, and they always will die. That is how the world works. Because if children did not die, and there was some magical kind of effect whereby homo sapiens under the age of 18 were invulnerable and invincible, the world would not be so immersive, and those children would think themselves gods. Not to mention what would happen if a bunch of these invincible children decided to attack, say, the US's nuclear installations as a prank, to see what happens "when you press all those red buttons". So it's a good thing that young homo sapiens are not invincible, and a direct consequence of this is that they can, and often do, die. Let us therefore, for once, be glad that children die! Let us thank the gods that we live in a universe where children are not invulnerable! For God help us if they were...
136. Dude mows down 69 "Norwegian" schoolchildren with a machine gun; how to intepret this event? The subhumans start wailing, etc. etc., and clamp down. Their chief question: "How is such an evil act possible, 'in this day and age'?" But it is precisely in this day and age that such an act is possible, since machine guns did not exist before. The subhumans' incredulity at such an event is therefore a result of their low culture, and in particular their complete and utter lack of historical knowledge, as if sudden, brutal, mad events like this had never occurred before. But a little study would reveal that they have always occurred, not only throughout recorded history, and in all the cultures, but with the lower animals as well (the lioness eating her young, for instance, is an even more outrageous event than this, since the shooter was not the father of any of the children). So basically, "evil" acts like these are not new phenomena, but the norm throughout history; their increased intensity is merely a consequence of the increased power of the means that exist all around us. Just as accidents have always happened, whether it was someone stubbing his toe on a rock or falling off a horse, but the huge plane crashes and train wrecks are a new thing. To desire no accidents, no acts of "madness", etc., is to desire a deterministic, ultimately dead world. The other thing here is how the event is blown completely out of proportion. With the lioness nothing happens; she eats her young and that is that. No outcry from other lions, no clamping down, etc. With earlier cultures there are no media, so the "mad" event remains circulating among a small circle of acquaintances, is accepted as a fact of life, or at most causes the most superstitious to "pray to their gods" or whatever, and life goes on. In the slave society, on the other hand, there is a thing called "the media", which, for purely selfish reasons (promotion, money, competition between media outlets) lays hold of the event and projects it to the entire planet (the entire "social responsibility" talk is just a ruse; none of them care about it, because if it ever became a reality they'd be out of a job). Then those "in power" are practically and psychologically extorted to act, on the one hand with more rhetoric, which merely intensifies the damage, blowing the event out of even more proportion, and on the other leading to the clampdown. Now the clampdown makes things even worse, since the more they restrict people's freedom of movement, the more there are who are either unable to conform (terrorism of weakness), or are not willing to (terrorism of strength). The rate of these "mad" events may therefore be reduced due to the clampdown, but the strength and explosiveness of those that do occur is increased, with the net result in the older case and the new being equal. And in fact the Norwegian dude may even be said to have failed compared to his predecessors, since a random killing a few thousand years ago, when the population of the earth was in the millions, was comparatively much greater than 69 in seven billion; if anything, one could even accuse the Norwegian of not slaughtering even more annoying little bastard brats.
135. Writer's block is bullshit. I've been writing for close to a decade now, and have not the faintest notion of the thing; it's merely a euphemism for slaves who want to make a living out of scribbling because they are too lazy to do anything else. If a writer has something to say, it comes out by itself, if he doesn't, then what's the point in WANTING to write? Money, of course.
134. "God doesn't like sex." HAHAHAHAHAHA. The subhumans have no clue.
133. The Ides of March. Hollywood sticks in half a dozen of its hottest stars in a single movie, and they still can't make democratic politics look exciting. Everyone comes across as a petty scheming idiot not even worms or scoundrels, just shallow nobodies.
132. Fondue sucks. It's just a pot of disgusting melted cheese in which you dip pieces of stale bread. The only reason subhumans are still eating it is because of all the apparatus on the table that makes them feel like children. Its continued popularity has nothing to do with culinary excellence but with subhuman childishness.
131. "Democratic legitimacy." But there's nothing "legitimate" about it, going by the slaves' own definition of legitimacy. For what "right" does the majority have to rule over, and oppress, the minority? And not only when the difference between the two is a couple of percentage points, as in most modern democracies, but even down to the individual person. What right do the millions have in telling me what to do, and throwing me in jail if I refuse to do it? The same exact right as dictators and monarchs of old: they are more, and therefore stronger. As for being "bound by law", I don't remember signing any contract. No one even bothered to INFORM me that I was bound by law, or even tell me WHAT these laws were. "Democracy": in plain words: the fascism of the majority. This is where their belief in the preeminence of numbers leads: the fascism of the majority is stronger, i.e. more fascistic, than the fascism of the minority (i.e. of the dictators and their cronies). If a "fascist" state lacks "democratic legitimacy", therefore, all this means is that, as far as the slaves are concerned, IT IS NOT FASCISTIC ENOUGH.
130. Was Nietzsche a systematizer? The scholars are divided on the issue. But Nietzsche was suspicious of systematizers, and maintained that "the will to a system is a lack of integrity" why? Because a system's purpose, at bottom, is to refuse the Other its own viewpoint. A complete and total theory of things would be logically binding for everyone; a form of supression, of opression. Besides which, it would be stupid, since no matter what the systematizer may say, the Other will have its viewpoint regardless. This, then, was Nietzsche's system: that there is no "system" i.e. no complete and total view of things that could cover the needs of every lifeform in the universe. The subhumans will pop up now and bleat, "See? We were right all along in not paying attention to systems!" They were "right", but for the wrong reasons (i.e. they were wrong): not insight in the truth of the matter, but laziness to study. Three levels here, as elsewhere: on the first, and lower level, the subhumans, who maintain a set of utterly contradictory beliefs, precisely because they themselves are contradictory beings: not bothering at all with being consistent or investigating anything and simply adopting any claim that seems to advance their interests at any given moment. On the second, higher level the pre-Nietzschean thinkers: who, having not yet drawn the ultimate conclusions from perspectivism and the flux, believed that a system could be found, and strove valiantly to find it. And on the third, final level Nietzsche and I (and Heraclitus too, actually, if you know how to read between his long-lost lines), who have elevated consistency to the point of total inconsistency, closing the circle at the high point, and therefore the most powerful.
129. The problem with demonstrations. Contrary to popular belief, nothing great has ever been achieved via demonstration. You don't even learn anything through it (any actually useful skills, etc.) The most you can hope to achieve is the exact same thing everyone else who is demonstrating will, meaning countless others. But to become great you must achieve a great deal MORE than ALL others not the SAME as them! You must achieve these things, in other words, FOR YOURSELF, and how can that be accomplished by spending all your time marching or whatever? Was Ghandi a great man? But what did he manage to achieve? Which of his practices could a young man adopt today, in order to become a great man? None. Same with the Nazarene. That is how you see that there was nothing great about them aside from great folly and stupidity, that is.
128. The attitude of modern fathers, who hate the idea of someone fucking their daughters, is loathsome and even obviously perverted. Nothing would give me more pleasure if I had fathered a daughter, especially a beautiful, smart girl, than the knowledge that some man worthy of her was treating her the way a woman should be treated which would of course include fucking her brains out every now and then. In fact I myself would set about finding her a husband worthy of her, and, having exacted his promise to treat her right, would admonish her to obey her husband and be his loyal and loving companion. To be sure, she would have to be a virgin up to that point I can well understand fathers who are upset at the idea of half the village idiots banging away at their daughter, not to mention the disgust I would feel towards the daughter that would consent to and desire such a life. I would not bring up the village slut I'd gut her myself before allowing her to become one.
127. Politicians lie, not because they enjoy it, but quite simply because, if they want to remain politicians, they have no other choice, for the subhuman will not tolerate the truth being so much as alluded to in his presence. Nothing funnier than subhumans decrying politicians' lying, when the man who would utter the simplest of truths that, for example, no lifeforms are equal would get zero votes. Subhumans see the entire world upside down, so when they complain that politicians lie what they really mean is that THEY DO NOT LIE NEARLY AS MUCH AS THEY SHOULD (i.e. not well enough so that the subhuman will not figure out he's being lied to). The moral for politicians of the future and I am a hundred percent behind it is clear: they have to learn to lie better.
126. Nietzsche on translation. "It is neither the best nor the worst in a book that is untranslatable." Precisely, because the best and worst things are ideas, and ideas can always be rendered in a language. What sometimes can't be rendered are puns, figures of speech, grammatical plays, acoustical tones, the rhythm perhaps, etc., i.e. stylistic elements, which are never the heart of the matter, or shouldn't be if there is to be any.
125. If the subhuman leaders are disgusting, it is because subhumans themselves are disgusting, and have the leaders they deserve. They themselves elected them, and have no one to shift the blame to. "The system is bad!", they cry. Well, you are the ones who made it, assholes. Finally, they make God responsible for everything. And I indeed accept responsibility while laughing my ass off at their utter incapacity to understand why I made everything the way I did.
124. Ultimately, businessmen still operate under the imperialist mindset; they order their stores and personnel and vehicles about in a sort of military fashion: toys, armadas, armies, uniforms, etc. The difference is that the day to day running involves juggling numbers instead of grenades and the crucial moments are boring and contain no threat to life or limb no physical exertion either. Hence they are fat and slothful; soldiers and generals of a debased kind of war.
123. "I don't care what happens, since I'll be dead by then." Typical subhuman sentiment. They don't care about the future. And it is for this reason that the future will not care about them.
122. When simulation is preferable to reality. E.g. it is sometimes better to masturbate with the idea of a beautiful woman, either using the imagination or some sort of simulacrum, than to have actual sex with an actual woman. Because sexual pleasure is physical and mental, there is a threshold of female ugliness past which the simulacrum is preferable. The same with videogames and war or business or real life. The aesthetic wretchedness of activities, which may be more demanding physically, accounts for people preferring the simulated, i.e. physically debased, but aesthetically heightened, alternative. Sex with an ugly woman is terrible. Past a certain point it's not even physically possible, since one cannot even get an erection.
121. And just as the weak creature inserts God wherever it feels its weakness, the strong creature inserts itself wherever it feels its strength, and ultimately in itself. To believe so much in oneself as to become one's own religion. And people think that I am an atheist. I am not an atheist, I am God.
120. Savonarola's letter to Alexander VI, on the murder of Alexander's son, the Duke of Gandia. In one sentence he claims that God forgives all sins, and barely a few paragraphs later he is foaming in the mouth at the calamities that God's vengeance will rain upon the sinners. Any attempt here to reconcile these two utterly contradictory claims is silly: Savonarola is merely yielding to sympathy in the beginning, bringing God in to allay Alexander's sorrow; and to hatred in the end, again of Alexander's power, etc. He's no better than a leaf that blows with the wind, the winds here being Savonarola's passions: pity at first, hatred later. Any attempt to communicate with him is futile, like trying to communicate with a cat or something; rather, one interprets his behavior and acts accordingly; above all, one realizes that one is dealing with an extremely frail, weak creature, and therefore doesn't take it seriously. As for God, he is inserted everywhere the weak creature feels its weakness, using God to allay Alexander's sorrow in the same way it uses him to allay its own, and then once again, in the impotence of its rage, to exact the revenge which the creature is unable to exact itself.
119. It is precisely the best drivers who cause the worst accidents. Only the terms should here be reversed, for the paradox is only a result of false terminology. For the most spectacular accidents are by no means the "worst", but precisely the best.
118. Voltaire: "Why in antiquity was there never a theological quarrel, and why were no people ever distinguished by the name of a sect? The Egyptians were not called Isiacs or Osiriacs; the peoples of Syria did not have the name of Cybelians. The Cretans had a particular devotion to Jupiter, and were never entitled Jupiterians. The ancient Latins were very attached to Saturn; there was not a village in Latium called Saturnian: on the contrary, the disciples of the God of truth taking their master's title, and calling themselves "anointed" like Him, declared, as soon as they could, an eternal war on all the peoples who were not anointed, and made war among themselves for fourteen hundred years, taking the names of Arians, Manicheans, Donatists, Hussites, Papists, Lutherans, Calvinists. And lastly, the Jansenists and the Molinists have had no more poignant mortification than that of not having been able to slaughter each other in pitched battle. Whence does this come?" From the Jews. Having lost their country, they had nothing left to fight for than their ideas, their beliefs, a practice they would later bequeath to the pseudo-Christians, all the way down to our own age. But to present also the other side of the coin, which Voltaire missed, it is a much higher thing to fight for an idea than for a piece of dirt, and it is this sort of fighting that will comprise the fight of the future.
117. The Nazarene was indeed free of ressentiment or at any rate as free of it as any man can be. But not because he was too great a man, but an extremely small one. Which is more or less what Dostoevsky had in mind when he called him an idiot.
116. It's not that God doesn't exist. It's that he doesn't care for the subhumans (or nowhere near as much, at any rate, as he cares for the humans). That's why he leaves their prayers unanswered. For humans and subhumans have always wanted exactly opposite things: We want war, death and destruction recurring eternally; they want "peace", "holidays", and a lot of sleep. We ask for no quarter, and give none; they are constantly begging for handouts and their "equal rights". Even if God wanted to grant everyone's wishes, he simply couldn't, and given that he has to pick a side, it's only natural that he would choose ours over the plebeians'; for as Sabatini points out somewhere, "the gods themselves are all aristocrats".
115. If you want to see what a subhuman really believes in, observe him at the moment of a medical emergency. Who is the first he thinks of, God or his doctor? Where does he first go, the church or the hospital? If he really does believe that his God is above the doctors, why does he unfailingly heed the doctors first in every case of need, and his God only much later, if at all? Therefore he believes first and above all in the descendants of Asclepius and Hippocrates.
114. Jacob Burckhardt: "Only the civilized, Greco-Roman and then European, nations, not the primitive ones, are part of history in a higher sense. The non-Caucasian cultures offer resistance, give way, and die out."
113. There are two kinds of anti-racists: those who act on their own behalf (i.e. who belong to the inferior races), and those who act on the behalf of others. The latter are bored with their lives and want something to do, on top of feeding off the "oppressed" ones' gratitude. The former hate their heritage and want to disappear (since equality is the very last step before the plunge into the abyss of inferiority). Why is there no black, or yellow, or red, etc. supremacism? It would be ridiculous: if any of them claimed any such thing no one would take offence, since it would be patently absurd it would only form an occasion for laughter. There is only white supremacy; after all, we invented the concept. As for the limited ressentiment kind of racism, seen in Japan for example, this they refute themselves. Who's sitting in chairs, sleeping in beds, and using spoons and forks? Are we the ones wearing kimonos or are they wearing suits? What do they teach in Japanese universities? Why are there even universities in Japan at all? Who has imported thousands of the other's words into their language? Who has the cultural inferiority complex and deserves to have it?
112. Nietzsche: "What determines your rank is the quantum of power you are: the rest is cowardice."
111. Thought as reduction. Eventually, we were bound to reduce everything to one thing, and from quality arrive at quantity.
110. Rousseau on Machiavelli is the archetype of false interpretation. Rousseau had trouble reconciling Machiavelli's obvious genius and splendid reputation with the ghastly practices the man was recommending to his ideal prince. So he turned this way and that, looking for a way out of the conundrum, and finally, he found it. The solution? It was all a big fat joke, and Machiavelli didn't mean a word of what he wrote! And that's how it always goes with subhumans: You say tomato and the subhuman says banana. In fact the subhuman says banana no matter what the hell you're saying. He will stand there, look you straight in the eye, and claim you meant the opposite of what you said, and, what's worse and renders any notion of subsequent explanations pointless he will even believe it!
109. A cultural comparison by comparing roulette types: American roulette is stupid (why not add six zeros, retards?), English roulette is thrifty and mistrustful, and French roulette is laid back, opulent and chic a real nobleman's and gentleman's version of the game.
108. The homosexual only exists because his parents were not homosexual but that too is now changing, with the proliferation of the various artificial insemination and surrogacy techniques. Finally, they too can do what everyone else has been doing for millennia. But God has cursed them to create life without passion.
107. The LA gangsters who'd drop all enmities to be in the Tony Scott movie and march together on Santa Monica pier or wherever. Dropping everything for a little dude with a camera who'd jump off a bridge a few weeks later. Enmity is for them a kind of pose. You realize how few men there really are, when even hardened criminals will drop everything to be in front of a camera like any teenage girl.
106. The higher you rise, both physically and spiritually but mainly spiritually the more all the creatures around you fade away and slowly disappear. Your parents, friends and relatives, not to mention the person in the street, become dead, can hardly be said to exist for you any more, while all the great figures of the past that all these shortsighted little creatures deem "dead", the philosophers and conquerors, gradually come alive, until one day they are all around you. You play at the higher level, where no one ever truly "dies", and where titanic forces are still waging their eternal struggle in which the pathetic little creatures all around you are not even important enough to be considered pawns; but dirt, atoms, nothingness.
105. All the things the subhumans vent their abysmal hatred on: violence, vindictiveness, pederasty, etc., are precisely the reasons that they exist. Man was the most violent, hateful, vindictive animal. Fetishizing youth is the very reason we exist. Fetishizing beauty, the female form, muscles, etc. By hating the very REASONS THEY EXIST, the subhumans prove beyond doubt that they are degenerate humans, just like the fag who lambasts the "conformist" lifestyle of his heterosexual parents and attempts to foist on society his degenerate condition of a pathological mindless buggery that leads to sterility and death.
104. Consider how refined women's judgement on men is: none of them, and especially the prettier, more demanding ones, wants a man whose life is devoted entirely to them; they want their men to want more. And this makes perfect sense: doubtless the caveman who desired nothing more from life than a woman ended up a bad husband and father. The ideal of woman as the highest prize was thus created by men of the second, even third rank: by lower men, who were not good at finding and securing for themselves good women. Goethe, Schopenhauer, Baudrillard, et al.: all of them lower men in this respect, setting woman (or sex, for the less romantically inclined ones like Schopenhauer) as the highest prize. But women themselves have always known better, that the highest prize must and always will necessarily lie beyond woman.
103. Marianne's behavior towards Colonel Brandon. At last she acknowledges his presence. Was she inconsiderate and cruel to ignore him for so long? This cruelty manifested itself as love towards Willoughby. The same quality that makes them infinitely agreeable to one man, causes them to torture another. In short, it is precisely with her best qualities that a woman hurts, and to hate her for it is a sentiment unworthy of a man. Misogyny is for beta males, fags and feminists. From alpha males there's only love.
102. Why do most people who CAN understand a little bit of philosophy, feel such a strong aversion to it? (evidenced by the fact that they do not tend to go on reading more of it on their own, after someone has initially introduced them to it). Because it reveals to them that, contrary to what they had thought, they are not the center of the universe, and moreover, and which is even worse, there ARE other men who ARE the center of the universe. To be sure, they are the center of THEIR OWN universe, and this applies to all men, and no one can take that away from them, but THE universe is not the same thing as THEIR OWN universe. More specifically, the former consists of the sum of all the latter.
101. Consider America's ludicrous "gun problem". The solutions: either everyone has guns, or no one does. No thinking involved at all on the subhumans' part. And then you have retarded autistic kids getting hold of assault rifles and going on killing sprees. Why did a teacher have a fucking assault rifle at home? The Brits prevent anyone from having a gun, and they even want cops not to have any either. Subhuman stupidity knows no bounds. Meanwhile, noble societies knew what to do ages ago: only the noble caste has weapons, end of story. But since there's no noble caste anymore, while the effectiveness of weapons has blown out of all proportion, you get the subhuman quagmire we are in which, considering how statistically insignificant deaths from this kind of violence are, isn't even a real quagmire.
100. Ultimately, as the dude in Safety Not Guaranteed correctly points out, time travel has to do with regret, and in this respect it's all the same if you want to go to the past or to the future. It makes no difference where else you'd rather be, the important part is that you'd rather not be right here, right now. There's always plenty of cool, important things to be done, no matter where the here and now may be. Your incapacity to do them is what drives you to wish that you were elsewhere.
99. All attempts at "humanitarian" intervention in Africa have been a disaster. The Western powers occasionally meddle in the affairs of the black continent, playing social engineering for prestige points or to counter Christian guilt-tripping, and when they mess up they take off, leaving behind diseases, guns, wars and decadent ideals.
98. "Above all else, be armed", wrote Machiavelli. It is painful to read a history or a novel set in the days before the slaves took over, and read about men putting on their swords or pistols before going out in the street, as an everyday occurrence. The slaves have completely disarmed us: it is now illegal to go about in any other way than naked. Even in the states, the entire gun control hoopla is much ado about nothing, since it's generally illegal to carry the gun around with you, which after all is what it's for. One step further and the slaves will be removing the nails and beaks from every creature in the street, and the next one will see everyone covered in pillows just in case.
97. "And will your books become movies?" No, they'll become life.
96. There's something pathetic about long friendships. They signify that you've failed to outgrow them.
95. Oh for the days when gentlemen walked around with swords and guns! The often unbearable tediousness of everyday existence could at least be shattered at any moment by a challenge for a duel.
94. Why is the businessman, ultimately, doomed to remain a little man? Because in order to be good at what he does, he has to think of the needs of everyone but himself.
93. They call it Greek mythology, but for the Greeks it was a religion. In the same way, one could speak of Christian mythology, and then the comparison, even on purely aesthetic grounds, finally appears in all its monstrous proportions, to the extent that even a distinction such as aristocratic versus plebeian flagrantly fails to do it justice. In the Greek religion we see the most fascinating and seductive tales of higher beings making war and love and all the rest; in the Christian one some ruffians in a desert praying for bread.
92. The Anonymous/hacktivism, etc. groups. Groups with no goals other than to provoke a reaction, or plain simply retarded goals. Symptomatic of extremely insignificant individuals, who simply have NO OTHER WAY in their normal lives of shaping anything, of achieving anything at all. Utter zeros. That's why they join these groups, and all justifications are attempts to hide this fact, first and above all from themselves.
91. The opposing viewpoints: Everything passes away, so nothing matters. This is nihilism speaking. And the retort: Everything returns, so everything matters. And this is Nietzsche speaking.
90. Neither Pascal nor Kierkegaard can be said to have been in any great measure Christians. Misunderstanding of Christianity even by them. Nothing but contempt for the "common man", for the subhuman, and they called themselves Christians! Schopenhauer combining pity with contempt. Pity for whom? For those he scorns, lol. If even geniuses misunderstood Christianity, what hope did the subhumans ever have?
89. Somewhere between romantic comedy and hardcore porn, lies the truth about women. Stray too far on either side (by being either too sappy, or too vulgar), and you miss something essential.
88. Time "only moves forward", so it is a special dimension, as opposed to length, for example, which also "moves backward". Flatheaded nonsense. Nothing ever "moves backward", not even in space; the feeling that "I have moved back" is merely a misunderstanding; the reality of that situation is that you have not moved forward enough.
87. The revolutionary crowds in Argo, choking with ressentiment. No essential difference with zombie flicks. The subhuman apocalypse, when it comes, will look a little like that film.
86. The crying of babies is insufferable. And they cry all the time. For this reason if for nothing else we need women, since no one else can stand them.
85. Why is violence always the solution? A solution is a way forward, and the way forward by definition flows. But violence is also flow. The proposition is a tautology: flow is always flow and if you want to be even more obnoxiously obvious about it you could add, "because it flows". The best solution, because it flows the most.
84. The answer to any problem: from grand politics, to mastering the environment, to combating pseudo-intellectualism and the artfag plague, is always one: death. Violence is the answer to every problem the only answer. The first and last solution. Everything else is compromise; which is to say retreat, bargaining, defeat.
83. Just as ships have a life raft, and spaceships in the future will have an escape pod both of whose purpose is to allow the occupants to get away in case of an emergency so too decadent religions have the soul, and for the same reason.
82. To make fun of stupid people is part of what it means to be intelligent.
81. The realization that we can affect a man's dreams, or desires, or general psychic balance by drugs or electrostimulation makes people uneasy. But what is the difference between this, and say, bashing someone on the head or something with a stone? It is merely a more subtle form of manipulation. Subhumans are getting to the point where they will feel perplexed about their ability to affect the rest of the universe at all. They would rather be causes without effects: mere observers of everything. It is the fact that the soul comes, or should come into it, at some point, that gives them all this trouble, but it turns out it's not needed at all. Where is the soul, if any given scientist can change your entire psychic balance by pressing a couple of buttons? The soul (like the Christian God) is supposed to be "outside" the universe, invincible, impregnable; something that, quite simply, doesn't flow. Which betrays the decadent, reactionary nature of the concept.
80. The retards ask: "Where is the evidence for the inferiority of women?" And I respond: Where is the evidence that the sun rises in the east and sets in the west? Where is the evidence that it takes clouds for it to rain? Where is the evidence that pigs can't fly? It's all around us. Propositions so self-evident that the mere fact that retards question their validity almost constitutes evidence.
79. Early vs. late Baudrillard: more aggressive early, less joyful, less jocular, less sarcastic. Later: less aggressive (has already demolished everything), more tired, more resigned, more mischievous. He had just about enough strength to demolish everything, but none left with which to build. Building itself he saw as an "illusion"...
78. When the octopus is cornered it sprays ink in every direction to confuse its assailant and, in the utter confusion that ensues, make good its escape. And so it is with the pseudo-intellectuals.
77. I do not understand women and never will; I don't even want to. To desire to belong to someone, to long to be overpowered and commanded such longings do not seem merely tough to empathize with to me but even absurd. How could anyone wish for such a thing? If I understood it at all it would mean that I am not a man, and by no means constitute a triumph of understanding on the male part of the species. Male and female: this means separate to all eternity, and all touted understanding is merely superficial. The reality, the truth, the essence of the difference are to all eternity ungraspable.
76. To realize to what extent slave culture, genuine slave culture, dominates slave society, and how far feelings have come from the noble days, consider that a mere 200 years ago one was ashamed to admit one was working, and today everyone around you looks down on and pities you if you say you don't work. Women even prefer workers for husbands they prefer slaves to free men!
75. Thank god we still have Africa. If the entire planet were turned into suburban desert, we wouldn't have anywhere to set our videogames in, no contemporary setting at all everything would have to be set either in the past (and primarily fantasy) or in the future (some variation of science fiction, either dystopian or post-apocalyptic). The new frontier can't come soon enough. Our urban deserts are useless for art, and once Africa is Westernized so will our real ones. And once the terraformers pour in they'll turn the Sahara into California and we won't even have literal deserts. This also shows up how art works. The exact present is impossible to portray in a good light however good the present may be. You need that distance vector; and as the planet becomes cleaned up, pacified and wired, distance in space becomes useless and you are forced to rely exclusively on time.
74. Randolph Bourne: "Few people even scratch the surface, much less exhaust the contemplation of their own experience." Nonsense. Everyone thinks in proportion to the power of their brain and the depth of their experiences (the two of which are, moreover, inextricably related). Potential is a concept that can only be applied a priori, in ignorantia in the grand scheme of things there's no such thing.
73. On music becoming theatrical. The more theatre in the music, the worse the musicians generally are. Typical band shot a bunch of pretentious idiots.
72. On catching your woman with another man. Granted that I don't have any experience in this field, I still fail to understand the impulse to beat the man. He is nothing in this entire scene: he did nothing. If you have to beat anyone at all, beat the woman. She is the one from whom you were expecting something. For you were certainly not expecting anything from random strangers. The stranger will always owe you nothing. The woman owes you nothing either, actually especially given the wretched little sham to which the slaves have finally managed to debase the concept "marriage" but if you absolutely MUST make someone responsible for something that no one is responsible for, the closest to justice that you can get under the circumstances is to make her.
71. The best thing that happened to the blacks was that they were taken slaves.
70. Russian roulette is not suicide, not even when one plays it by oneself. The question is how far can you go, how many steps can you take, before the inevitable. That is the game. And for the game to exist, the number of chambers in the barrel must be finite. If it were infinite there'd be no game: infinite steps is the same as no steps; in such a game there would be nothing to discover, which is why it wouldn't be one.
69. One advantage of twittering culture is that the sheer volume of petty, idiotic and nonsensical chatter that leads nowhere practically points to the exact opposite direction which actually leads somewhere. The vast distance between the rabble and the philosopher, the sheer numbers and imbecility of the first compared with the singularity and profundity of the latter, begins to become visible even to weak eyes.
68. People have a vast problem dealing with the notion of the inequality of men. But that the only reason for this problem is envy and resentment is shown by the fact that when it comes to other species, not only is there no problem, but inequality is taken as a given and the mere implication that, for example, a dog may be equal to a man is treated by everyone as proof of madness and cause for internment in mental institutions (and this is indeed how it will eventually be with whoever keeps insisting on the equality of humans and subhumans). And yet a simple substitution is all it takes to reveal the sheer absurdity of the business. Change "men" to "lifeforms" and the deeply reactive nature of the equality lie, the massive incapacity to unblinkingly acknowledge the simple fact that some men are superior, and even vastly superior, to others, stands revealed. For in the end it all comes down to DNA, since species are ultimately fictitious. "All men are equal" means "all DNA is equal". And the only answer that can be given at this point is: O rly?
67. The actor. By continually pretending to be something, you ensure that you never become it. Perpetual pretension. And not pretension as in miming, copying, learning, etc.; i.e. pretension as a means of education but pretension for the sake of pretension. By continually pretending to be a great man, the one thing you will surely achieve is to never become one.
66. Napoleon and Hitler: two faces of the same coin, with devastation following at the end in either case. Why the extra hatred for the latter? Partly the far greater scale and scope of WWII over the Napoleonic Wars, partly the increased power in the means of war and the ensuing devastation, partly Jewish lies and propaganda. That no one studies history any more and therefore has no clue who Napoleon was and more importantly what he did, is not exactly helping either.
65. To have more fun than the subhuman is a violation of his "equal rights", and it's already illegal. That's what "redistribution" means, and that's why people with sense the world over are against it.
64. The media's predilection for small tragedies (small, because great tragedies only happen to the great, and journalists have not the faintest clue of what greatness is or where to find it) has not yet been explained. So ten kids being killed is news, but millions of kids finishing high school, winning sports championships, learning new languages, etc. is not. If reporting were really representative (instead of merely a reflection of what the rabble wants to see), even the subhuman would realize that the "bad" things are a drop in the bucket (and a necessary drop) and barely even deserve to be mentioned. But good news aggravate the subhuman's ressentiment. Who among them wants to learn of the countless privileged youths who are earning Masters and PhDs, going on skiing trips to the Alps or surfing holidays in Hawaii, etc.? It's the same psychology at bottom that sees tabloid rags running ugly pictures of celebrities to assuage the raging envy of the rabble that reads them. That is how this general impression of chaos and decline is created for a civilization which, in all the essentials, is so obviously flourishing.
63. Getting a woman is very different from keeping her. Here, perhaps, Machiavelli was wrong. Wanting, and doing what it takes to get her, is normal and highly laudable; the expression of a natural desire, etc. Expending any great effort to keep her, on the other hand, is ignoble; a sign that you are dubious about your chances of getting another, perhaps a better one in future.
62. The "Western" canon. As opposed to what? You can see how ludicrous the idea of an "Eastern" canon would be by the fact that no one talks about it not even the "Easterners". I mean, what exactly would be in it? A couple dozen books the latest of which dates from the Middle Ages? Not to mention "Northern" or "Southern" canons, lol. It was too cold on the North Pole and too hot in Africa to write, let alone think, retards! Which brings us back to the Mediterranean...
61. I travel a lot but hate tourism. I never travel with a return ticket I always like to leave open the possibility that I may never go back to wherever I came from. Things are more exciting this way and I need all the excitement I can get to avoid going nuts from... too much thinking, I guess. This is the curse of thinking. Thinking, basically,consists in predicting the future. This is the sole reason that people think. And the better you get at thinking, the better you get at this prediction game. The problem, however, is that predicting the future is much like watching a movie with a friend who's already seen it, and who is intent on spoiling all the fun for you by whispering in your ear what's going to happen next. The philosopher is basically someone who spoils life for himself in precisely this way. He also makes it better of course, but at the same time spoils it. The stronger and wiser he grows, the more enjoyment he reaps from life, but at the same time the more difficult it becomes for him to actually enjoy this enjoyment. He has to effectively go up against himself: the better his predictive powers become, the more wild and even stupid the things he has to do in order to keep surprising himself to avoid validating his own goddamn predictions. Which is why Zarathustra says:
...the wisest soul, to whom foolishness speaks sweetest...
60. The three standpoints on fate: 1. My fate will happen regardless of what I do (the average man), 2. My fate will happen because of what I do (the strong man), and 3. My fate will happen despite of what I do (the weak, the desperate man). A final possibility is God's: "I am fate". But this is merely a variation and upper limit on how the strong man feels.
59. Wittgenstein is once you have got past "that hocus-pocus of mathematical form", in which, like Spinoza, he encased and masked his philosophy utterly exasperating. Ethics is transcendental, aesthetics is transcendental, logic is transcendental! everything is transcendental! But all these things are in the universe, you goddamn brainless twit, how can they be transcendental! The universe is everything, nothing is transcendental! that's just a word imbeciles use to signify that they are incapable of understanding something! And sure enough, he understood neither logic, nor ethics, nor aesthetics among a great many other things, practically everything! partly because he didn't bother reading enough of what his predecessors wrote, but mainly because he was a little man with small experiences and therefore incapable of making any progress in psychology, which is where all these "transcendental" categories begin and end.
58. Celebrity-worship is a type of self-hatred. The busy man barely has any time for those around him, relatives and friends, never mind for strangers who live half-way around the world. With his absurdly obsessive interest in utter strangers, the subhuman is not only saying that he finds his own life boring, but that he's even given up hope of any improvement in this regard. Celebrities provide subhumans entertainment and escape from the drudgery of being themselves.
57. Which is why I say that true genius ultimately lies, not in proving anyone wrong, but in proving everyone right.
56. Linguistic optics: the time for it has come. The idea is basically that no one (and nothing) is "wrong"; they can't be wrong because they are part of the universe, and whatever is in their brains in the brains of even the stupidest person is as "correct" as what's in my mind or Nietzsche's or Baudrillard's. What we need then is an art of interpretation so subtle and powerful that it can bring out the "truth" that's hiding inside even the dumbest person's brains.
55. "Waaaaaaah, mooooooommy, he swears a lot, I don't like him!" I don't like you either, fuckface. As for the swearing, Earth to flaming faget: that's how men talk. If you don't like it, go sit with the womenfolk.
54. Journalistic integrity. The journalists are constantly trying to shift the discussion to the issue of integrity whenever their profession comes under attack. But integrity is the very last thing that matters here. For you could be the most honest person in the world and still be a brainless imbecile (and indeed, that is precisely what the most honest people in the world are). The correct retort then here is: "No one gives a flying fuck about your honesty if you are an uneducated blockhead like all journalists ever, asshole. Go screw yourself."
53. I love France. I love everything about it even the rudeness and the snobbishness. If I could not have been born Greek, I would have wanted to be a Frenchman. Failing that, Italian. Failing that I would rather I'd never been born. The "dolce vita", at least as far as we earthlings are concerned, begins and ends in the Mediterranean.
52. What does it say about democratic politics that in the overwhelming majority of countries there are only two electable parties, instead of, say five or six or seven? That the number one thing voters care about is not the issues but the spectacle of the race the game which arrives at its peak when there are only two contenders.
51. "Your banking system enslaves us." But that is merely ressentiment talking. For there were slaves long before there was a banking system, and there will be slaves long after the banking system is no more. It is not the Other who enslaves you, but always you yourself, when you refuse to make the ultimate sacrifice and put your life on the line in order to chase after your dreams.
50. Why do the slaves have an inverted perspective in the taking/giving business? Because of their narrow worldview. They only see what the masters take from them, and disregard what they give them everything, including, and first and above all, life itself.
49. The popular metaphor that a man "takes" a woman is well-meant, but wrong. For it is obviously the woman who takes, and the man who gives. He who gives, however, is stronger. And since from the slaves' inverted perspective the opposite appears, it has come to pass that popular usage has created this expression.
48. Leibniz said that this is the best of all possible worlds, and Voltaire wrote an entire novel satirizing this claim. But what does "best of all possible worlds" mean, when the existence of "other" worlds is an absurdity, as far as we are concerned, and we'd be in no position to compare them even if it were otherwise? All it means is "I love myself", since in the definition of world the I is included, and is indeed what one refers to when one speaks of "the world", since the only aspect of "the world" that one can ever have experience of is oneself. "This is the best of all possible worlds" therefore means "I love myself", and to deride this means self-hatred.
47. Fate, the way I use the word, is a kind of boasting, while with others it's complaint. Same word, but antithetical concept, with the meaning depending, as always, on the degree of power of the speaker.
46. The word "jungle" has very different connotations to the ears of a hare and of a tiger. To the hare it recalls a constant state of fear and watchfulness, a hostile environment in which the least mistake can spell doom; whilst to the tiger all it means is merely "home".
45. "I want to have his babies." They know exactly whom the babies belong to. In fact there's no other way to phrase it. I want to have our babies sounds weird.
44. Reggae is the most disgusting kind of music there is, more disgusting even than the most miserable, most depressing kind of peasant and folk music. And a look at the smelly rastafarian bastards will reveal the reason why. Ugly, lazy, shitty music for ugly, lazy, stupid people. "Don't worry, be happy." Keep telling that to yourself, dude!
43. To feel resentment is to admit defeat. It's not even a matter of allowing yourself to feel resentment or not you have no choice in the matter: you've either been defeated or you've not. The winner has neither the time nor any reason to feel resentment; the loser has both a very good reason and all the time in the world.
42. No woman has yet been touched by any genuine philosophical concern whatever.
41. Us versus Them: this is a crucial distinction. Without it there's no war, and with no war no victory. But the slaves have eliminated Them and fancy that we've all become Us now, whereas in reality the opposite has happened: each one of Us is now surrounded by Them.
40. Star attraction, movie premieres, sports events, red carpets and gala openings: the eternal war between depth and appearances. But there is no war at all between them, since the purpose of depth is to create a stronger, and thus more beautiful, appearance; to transform itself into appearance. Those who scorn appearances and evangelize depth are precisely those who are incapable of much, if any, depth: the pseudo-intellectuals, which is why it is by no means an accident that all of them are ugly.
39. Beginners with Ewan McGregor. Heart-breaking gay story. You can always make a heart-breaking gay story about any loser ever, but there comes a time when you need to sit down and go beyond the shallow guilt-tripping and look into realities. No doubt the ants whose entire colonies were flattened when you cleared up the land to build your school or hospital could tell stories a thousand times more heart-breaking than those of a couple of fags, but if you actually stop building schools and hospitals because of them, YOUR FUTURE will become a heart-breaking gay story for lifeforms not dumb enough to fall prey to the sentimental guilt-tripping of losers.
38. Metacritic: the more critics you average over, the more the average tends towards the opinion of the average person in the street, and hence becomes superfluous, self-negating, since it is precisely the purpose of criticism to give you something more than the opinion of the average person in the street. Metacritic here works exactly like journalism, which in its more advanced stages tends towards simply reflecting the rabble's opinion back to it. The most successful journalist is he who has no ideas of his own, but best manages to predict how the rabble will feel, and serves its eventual opinion to it in advance. Even better, to be as average a man himself as possible so that no advanced inquiring, insight, dissimulation will be required on his part, but merely to write down his simple, average thoughts like the simple, average man that he is. The application of democracy to criticism and cultural analysis here has the same effect, tending to either cancel itself out or reinforce its own functioning, depending on how you see it. Metacritic then is no more really a critic than a democratic government is really a government (or public opinion is really an opinion) and so it is with everything.
37. So how do you find a good leader then? You don't. He finds you.
36. Hitler: "Sooner will a camel pass through a needle's head, than a great man be found by an election."
35. Ultimately, even democracies do not work democratically. The masses elect the leader, but then he APPOINTS his cabinet, etc., which in turn appoint their inferiors, all the way down to the day-to-day running of the most insignificant government agency. For a "democracy" to really function democratically, the masses would have to be consulted on every move that happens; you'd need a plebiscite for every budgetary measure, every foreign action, every hiring and firing of the most insignificant civil servant, at which point the leader would be superfluous, since all his moves would have been made for him. It is precisely due to the fact that all his moves are not made for him, i.e. because he autarchically, tyrannically, unilaterally makes at least some moves, that he is necessary it is precisely this tyranical dimension of his that one praises when one praises a leader as a "good leader", i.e. a good tyrant. Representative democracy, then, is not democracy at all, except in the most tenuous sense of the word, and it is for this reason that it is not a complete disaster as it would be if the masses were asked to vote on everything. It still is a disaster, of course (because the most important decision, the identity of the supreme leader, is indeed decided by the masses), but precisely to this small degree of tyranny allowed, and even actively encouraged, not a complete one.
34. Once you have realized that there cannot exist equal things, order of rank follows immediately.
33. Or, more simply, two different things cannot be equal because then they wouldn't be different.
32. Why there cannot exist two equal things. Because each thing is related to everything else in the universe. For two different things to be equal they would have to be related to all other things in the universe in an exactly equal fashion, including to each other, in which case they would have to be the same thing, i.e. not different things. I believe the mathematicians call this sort of proof "reductio ad absurdum".
31. The shift from classical to quantum mechanics (the latter a misnomer, since quantum mechanics are not mechanics), marks the shift from certainty to statistics i.e. to uncertainty. But nothing fundamental has changed, since there was no certainty with the classicists' "certainty" either they merely believed in it, but they were mistaken.
30. Out of all the ideological morons who are peddling their grossly outdated fantasies in the marketplace today, the only ones who should be taken seriously are the capitalists: rich people who can show you how to get rich. They might not know much else about life and the universe, but at least they know this one thing! compared to all the other penniless retards who know absolutely fucking nothing about anything.
29. Precisely the fact that a utopia is something by definition unachievable proves that God doesn't want it to be achieved. It's not therefore so much "other people", or man's "evil nature", which stands in the way of the utopians' fantasies as every last one of these utterly unhinged individuals would have you believe but God himself who is against them.
28. Buddhists, Christians, democrats, socialists, communists, anarchists: Precisely because none of them already have the utopia that they are all so desperately looking for, it'd be ridiculous to take their absurd, incoherent ravings seriously, as ridiculous, indeed, as taking business advice from a homeless person.
27. The writer W.G. Sebald once wrote, "Men and animals regard each other across a gulf of mutual incomprehension". This is wrong. The higher animals understand the lower just fine as much, at any rate, as it is possible to understand anything. But it is certainly true of the lower animals (of which W.G. Sebold was one), and consequently of subhumans though naturally enough they themselves think otherwise. For ultimately everyone thinks they understand everything. And they do. Only one's "everything" isn't everything, and everythings are no more equal than anything else.
26. Whether it's chimpanzees hollering and grunting, religious nuts Koran- and Bible-thumping, or philosophers engaged in the most sublime and transmontane abstraction acrobatics, the end result is the same: In all cases feelings have been transmitted and a general course of action agreed upon; the particular forms in which this transmission can occur whether via grunts, holy-book-thumping or complex and reasoned argument are merely the different ways in which different species of lifeforms transmit feelings. The relative change in the complexity of the process is merely a reflection of the relative difference in the complexity of the lifeforms; the more complex lifeforms will naturally require a more complex process, all the way up to this book: the most complex book that will ever be written.
25. Baudrillard: "The ultimate achievement is to live beyond the end, by any means whatever."
24. We die twice, once when the last breath leaves our bodies, and again when the last person who knows our name dies.
23. The barbarians never conquered Rome, as is generally believed. They simply became Romans, just as the Romans had become Greeks before them, and everyone is becoming Western now. The greater culture always conquers the lower in the long run, no matter what happens on the battlefield, because there's always been, and there always will be, a greater war than that between nations: that between individuals.
22. A man who has settled down is merely another kind of woman.
21. The theory "of everything". To realize how absurd the notion of such a theory is consider this: such a theory would be able to predict what you would do before you did it. You would have the prediction before you acted. In which case you could do something else and prove it wrong. The theory of everything would end up being a theory that anyone could prove wrong at any time, lol. The purported smartest theory would actually be, as is only fitting, the stupidest.
20. Ideally, one should never ask a woman anything. More: one should never ask a woman for anything one should only give to her.
19. It is by foregoing all other women and focusing on one, that a relationship acquires the highest degree of meaningfulness. And it is by foregoing all other possibilities in life i.e. all other people and becoming oneself, that one's life does likewise.
18. Sψren Kierkegaard: "People understand me so poorly that they don't even understand my complaint about them not understanding me."
17. Understanding goes from higher to lower, there's no understanding from lower to higher, only misunderstanding some absurd simplification/falsification/reinterpretation of the signs. I am not talking to you, you just happen to be within hearing distance while I address the ones I am talking to. Moreover, there's no question of you disagreeing or even of agreeing with me, since you can't even parse what I am saying. We are neither agreeing nor disagreeing; we are not even communicating. You are just flapping your lips; I am the only one here who's talking; and as I've just explained, and you've failed to understand, not to you.
16. The confidence fagotry. "Just be confident", etc. The most they can do is bluff, but a man who's bluffing will react very differently from someone who's the real deal when pushed and then all your stupid blanket advice will manage to accomplish is to get some poor little weakling's face smashed in.
15. The shallow thinkers who want moreover to pass to you for "humanitarians" say: "Don't investigate the people, investigate the system". But the people are the system. Who do you think created the system? The magical system fairies? Investigating the system ends up leading you back to the people; more precisely, to the psychological processes which led them to create it.
14. I have nothing but love for my teachers. To be resentful of and hate your teacher is the first symptom of the bad, the hopeless student. And to envy him of the mediocre.
13. The kingdom of God is inside you, said the Nazarene. But the subhumans are still looking for it, not merely outside themselves, but even "outside" the universe. You can lead a mule to water...
12. How does resentment feel? It feels like unfairness, injustice. It directs the gaze outward, to protect one from dwelling on the flagrant lack of power which led one to feel resentment in the first place. It is not the Other that is causing the resentment, but yourself, and all resentment does is protect you from this painful realization, which would be otherwise added to the already unbearable pain of the resentment's cause.
11. If you say, "it is not fair that his parents are rich and mine poor", you might as well say, "it is not fair that he is tall and I am short". And why stop there? It is not fair that the earth turns around the sun, the sun should turn around the earth at which point the sheer absurdity and wretchedness of the whole business becomes obvious.
10. The microscientists claim that there "are" 4, or 6, or 27 dimensions, dispute each other's claims and try to "find" exactly how many dimensions there "are". But a dimension is not something that exists outside the brain, but a mere concept that the brain creates and projects onto its environment in order to "understand" it (i.e., as I'll be explaining shortly, predict its behavior with a view to shaping it for its wishes). The microscientists have once more mistaken their models for reality, and have confused the question of the number of dimensions of the universe (infinite which is to say the same thing as one), with the number of dimensions in their models (the more the better). The more dimensions a brain can resolve, the more subtle, more powerful it is. Which is why the microscientists say that there "are" 4, or 6, or 27 of them and I say infinite.
9. "Life's too short" means: "my power's too small".
8. Napoleon's tomb at Les Invalides. The feeling of weight here would crush even an Atlas. This is no mere "man's" tomb, is what the architect is saying to you: a superhuman being must lie here. And now compare him with the celebrity nobodies if you want to understand the meaning of the word "nausea".
7. In short, all cultures are equal, but some are more equal than others. The subhumans are the pigs in Orwell's parable, and even Orwell himself was one of them: an eloquent and crafty little pig.
6. "ALL CULTURES ARE EQUAL. WE SHOULD LOVE AND CHERISH ALL OF THEM EQUALLY." O rly? And what about the cultures that practice human sacrifice? Are those equal too? Or how about Viking culture, or samurai culture, or Taliban culture, etc. etc. etc. But what the subhuman means by "culture" is merely some funny costumes and exotic dishes (which, by the way, are not equal either). That's how far his understanding of the concept of culture goes. And so it is with everything. So while hypocritically professing the equality of all cultures, he is hard at work in their destruction, and in the universalization and domination of his own: subhuman culture.
5. The anti-racists say: there are no races. There are no lions, tigers, cougars, jaguars, panthers: they are all just cats. There are no blacks and whites we are all just people. There are no people and animals we are all just lifeforms. There are no beings and things we are all just parts of the flux. Which strictly speaking is true, but which, by depriving us of any possible words and concepts, in no way helps us analyze anything or even so much as communicate by which fact the will of those who reason in this way stands revealed.
4. The so-called "real" is merely someone else's fantasy.
3. From the Declaration of Independence of a future Human nation: "We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all lifeforms are created unequal, that they have no rights whatsoever apart from those that the ruling caste deems expedient to endow them with at any given time, and that Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness are not ideals to be placed over free men but mirages with which to confuse the weak minds of slaves and lead them to their holding cells".
2. God's secret. Contrary to popular belief, he doesn't like to be "outside" the universe. He prefers to be inside it, where, as he himself has put it, "all the fun shit happens". For the eternal enemy of God is not, and has never been the Devil (for in fact the two of them are one and the same being), but good old plain boredom.
1. And as God once spun the whole world out of himself, so too the time will come for the world to coalesce and fuse in such a way as to recreate God. From which follows...
He could refract an idea which everyone thought simple into a hundred others, as the prism does with sunlight, each finer than the other, then gather together a host of others to recreate the white light of the sun, where others merely saw disorder and confusion.
