    When a man walks through the woods he may stop to gather his breath, and wanting to appreciate the distance he's crossed he may turn and look back seeing only the last trees, but not the first one's he passed when he began his trip.
    Upon these last trees, the closets will dominate. He may choose to carve his name upon it, or to lie beneath its branches, contained within its shadows.
    The tree, that particular tree, will come to represent all the trees he passed, or will pass; the memory of which will be the closest, the most vivid, intimate, ground-breaking.
    It will come to represent the journey itself.

    Lies and liars need converts, and conviction.
    Thy must proselytize to validate themselves.

    Truth and honesty, only requires awareness, courage and time.

    Hypochondria and Bachelorhood
    Males who have not passed on their genes, and have not had opportunity to do so, are prone to become hypochondriacs.
    They blame their inability no inexperience or a faulty perspective which experience and changing their perspective can remedy.
    Unable to turn back time, they wish to prolong youth, to give themselves a second chance.
    Obsessing over remaining as youthful looking as possible, they also fear any factor that may result in death or a diminishment of their health.
    Hypochondria is an expression of this desire to prolong youth, allowing newfound experience and perspectives to be applied.

    Ontology of Illness
    One can become used to being ill.
    The constant attention; the ready excuse for why you continuously fail; the worship of your diagnostician, the regimented feeding times, eating time, entertainment period; the camaraderie developed in institutionalization, in the infirmary, between victims of disease.

    Over time, you begin to think that being ill is how life always has been - that the disease is a universal good, and that you are the healthy one, not those who do not suffer your ailment.
    You no longer want to get better, fearing to leave the safety of the sanitarium, where everything is ordered, certain, predictable, and nothing is demanded of you but to follow the doctor's orders.
    One can grow to love his doctors and nurses, and the disease that helps him remain in their care.

    A woman that finds a man attractive, even if her mind rejects the idea, but her body automatically affirms it, the smell of him, his sweat, his body odour, smells divine.
    The male who is unattractive, even if her mind affirms him, finds him interesting, but her body rejects, smells terrible - he stinks.

    When the first is arrogant and selfish, it is strength - he is expressing his masterly right, his noble ambitions.
    When the second hints at arrogance and selfishness, it is weakness - he is envious, compensating, trying too hard.

    Unable to accept the unflattering possibility that his judgment was wrong about something, or about someone, the degenerate projects the insulting error upon the other, accusing him or it, of changing to correct his or its error.
    In this way the degenerate never has to confront himself, gradually developing a narcissistic psychosis, unloading all his personal failings, and inferiority upon otherness.
    The myth of the self increases, to the point where any reminder of what he is, is taken as an attack upon the image he's cultivated and bought into.
    His intimates are those who support the delusion, feeding on it, and feeding into it.

    He who fishes in a sewer is sure to catch a species that consumes feces, and feels at home in the muck.
    He who consumes such species identifies himself as a predator of the lowest, most desperate kind, by digesting his own excrement by using a intermediate entity to hide the fact of his self-recycling.

    The last, desperate, gambit for a weak mind, after he's become aware, but still not admitted it to himself, that he's overestimated his own cleverness, or underestimated that of his opponent, is to claim that, despite the chess-board, he's been luring the other into a trap, or, he now shares in the other's victory by staging it as a "lesson".
    It's the only way the ego can save itself from the pain of being exposed.

    The wonderful thing about being a realist is that the world is on your side.
    You don't need followers, helpers, quotes...even if sometimes they add to the impact.
    It's only a matter of time, for the most stringent delusional degenerate, to begin to pretend that he was always on that side, and that he never denied the validity of what he once rejected and fought against, and now claims to have hidden a secret agreement.

    Success has many fathers...failure is always an orphan.

    Females know this well.
    They cannot resist the man who enters the scene with a female she considers her equal, or her superior.
    The same man she would not turn to give a second look to, is suddenly, someone she always "felt" was a "diamond in the ruff".

    More vulgarly...pussy is attracted to the smell of pussy on a cock, not her own.

    Big lies are built on the backs of multiple smaller, innocuous, 'white' lies.
    You cannot even begin to discredit the big lie, without returning to the multitude of tiny, seemingly harmless ones.
    You let them pass and you allow them to settle and become the foundation for the big one.

    Insight into human nature, human psychology, is for a philosopher what realism is for a artist.
    He proves his talent, his insight, in providing insights into humanity, the most intimate part of existence, so that all can appreciate it, and acknowledge his talent, before he proceeds to offer insights into abstractions the common mind cannot fully appreciate...jut as an artist, if he is to be respected, first begins by representing, in his art, the mundane, the real, so that even a commoner can appreciate and acknowledge it as precise and insightful and talented, before he starts creating abstraction into metaphysical conceptions.
    Otherwise, an ape splashing paint on a canvas, or his own feces on a pedestal and then arranging it with his primate fingers, will also be considered insightful and artistic.

    One has to prove that he can see reality, before he proceeds to express what he sees on a level the average eye cannot see.

    What a drug user is admitting, whether he knows it or not, is that he is unable to tolerate world without the help of some mind altering agent.
    He is admitting that he, or she cannot find beauty and a reason to exist, a reason to continue enduring what is negative about existence, without external help.

    It is usually in times of decay, when all becomes a matter of pleasuring self, and self-deceit, when the individual is protected from the worse of what life can throw at him, that such practices become wide-spread.

    A strange thing about experience, and experiencing....
    It appears to be inversely proportional to itself.
    The more experiences you have, the less experiences you desire to have repeated, until, at some point in time, there are few experiences you look forward to, and less of the ones you cannot foresee are expected to be positive.

    Fortunately, for me, most people do not understand what I am saying, or do not understand the implications of what I am saying, and of the rest most do not agree with what I am saying, and do not understand the implications of this disagreement.

    Using the human body, the nervous, skeletal system, wrapped in a membrane/skin,as a metaphor for human ideas, we can see that where spinal column meets cranium is where body becomes mind - exoteric becomes esoteric.
    The skeleton is the core of a theory that requires fleshing out.
    If reality contradicts it, this fleshing out is impossible when exposed to real natural forces, and can only grow if placed in a quarantined, controlled, sheltering environments, where the conditioned can be adjusted to accommodate it.

    If exposed to reality the flesh hangs in a haphazard decaying way, like a Zombie.

    Beware of the one who calls himself good, who declares himself a genius.....he is the most foolish of the fools, the worst of the worst.
    Beware of the one who wants to lead....he will lead you to your doom.
    Beware of the one who calls himself a saviour...he is one of the damned.
    Beware of the one who has found the absolute....for he is absolutely lost.
    Beware of the one who announces that he's found the solution to everything....for he has nothing.
    Beware of the one who desires to rule, for he is ruled by his passions, his needs.
    Beware of the inflated ego, peering into itself.....for he is fragile, seeking protection in himself.

    Duchesne, Ricardo wrote:Ind-Europeans were uniquely rules by a class of free aristocrats, grouped into war bands that were egalitarian rather then ruled by autocrats. A state is 'aristocratic' if the ruler, the king, or the commander-in-chief is not an autocrat who treats the upper classes as unequal servants, but is a 'peer' who exists in a spirit of equality, as another warrior of noble birth, primus inter pares. This is not to say that the leader did not get to enjoy extra powers and advantages, or that leaders were not tempted to act in tyrannical ways. It is to say that aristocratic cultures, for all the intense rivalries between families and individuals seeking their own renown, there was a strong ethos of aristocratic egalitarianism against despotic rule. A true aristocrat deserving respect from his peers could not be submissive; his dignity and honour as a man were intimately linked to his capacity for self-determinism.
    -Faustian Man in a Multicultural Age

    Contrast Aryan spirituality with Abrahamism and its authoritarian, singularity one-God.

    This spirit is based on metaphysics as I described them.
    The absence of an absoltue makes this spirit possible.
    An absolute would be a de facto authority, an imposition upon free-will and individuality.
    it is because of chaos that an individual organism stands before it alongside other organisms, as agencies of order.
    Absolute order is another way of describing Abrahamism, and its version of a One-God.

    Chaos, as I defined it, places the gods alongside man. Superior but agencies of order.
    The Greeks did not worship their gods in a submissive manner. They tried to placate and trick them....gain their favour, and often challenged them.
    This is the Faustian spirit of European culture.  

    The anti-Faustian spirit permeates western civilization.....as a disease.
    It underlies philosophy and its derivative, science.  
    It presumes a singularity, or an ordered universe as a starting premise....and it reflects the Biblical declaration that 'first came the word'.....where language is the expression of noetic ordering.
    There are two ways to approach this...one as a declaration of an intent - to impose order where there is none....or that there exists order which all must submit to.
    Rejection of this is what results in post-modern nihilism, that begins by a selective rejection of natural order and then linguistically declares its own fabrications as more real than the real.....the ideal more than the real.

    Here the separation of self from nature places it in an antagonistic relationship, that evolves into the notion of a absolute God existing beyond existence.
    The Aryan understanding places man before natural order as the Greeks placed themselves before the gods.
    First among equals, means the gods are first, and man an equal agency of nature, of ordering, in opposition to chaos.
    This does not mean a rejection of the gods and the declaration of self as above them.
    The Olympian gods, as the Greeks metaphorically understood them, were also fighting against chaos, I the form of Titans.

    Without chaos, defined as randomness, there is no concept of 'first among equals', or of 'free-will' or of self-determinism.
    There is an totalitarian authority, whether conscious or not, imposing a rule, in the form of linguistic commandment, in more primitive superstitious forms, or imposing laws we cannot overcome, or contradict.
    There are indeed natural laws that can be understood by man, by finding patterns in the patterns, or by anthropomorphisizing them into deities representing natural forces.... and we can indeed conflict, barter and submit to them, but there is also randomness which defies all understanding of it.
    As Kazantzakis described in his book Ασκητική, the gods are fighting alongside us, not against us, if we only pay them homage and we do not reject them.      

    The same relationship to the leader is found in all Aryan cultures...and more strikingly found in Sparta, with its two-kings.
    It also underscored Democratic system, even though the principle of first among equals is never practised, particularly when it comes to shared risks.

    I consider Timocracy  a more Aryan political system, in comparison to Democracy.
    Democracy is a compromises forced upon the Athenians due to their decline.
    Yet, how they practiced it and how we do in modern times, is different.

    Feminization of Philosophy
    Love of wisdom has become love of self.
    Philosophy, for the modern, is psychology.
    A continuous social and emotional positioning.

    The feminine is overtaken by masculine words.
    She swoons, listening to him conjure his version of the absolute out of thin air, wanting to give it flesh and blood she spreads herself wide-open, lusting for what she’s never had.
    Over time, eros frees her mind, returning it to its normal state.
    She suddenly finds the entire affair amusing.
    His words no longer grip her imagination, moistening, and softening her resistance.
    His juvenile presentation of what is missing no longer inspires her.
    She finds him charming, in a boyish way.
    Lust may turn to love, if she discovers charisma in him – traits that can hold her interest, or parts she would like to propagate.
    But he has lost his manly intimidation, and his mystery.
    She thinks on her earlier state and is amused by her own naiveté, finally excusing herself by accusing her womanly desires, and her insatiable appetites for novelty, and the promise of power.

    A pure agency of nature, woman holds chaos and order inside her.
    Shifting, when unseen forces play with her spirit.
    She can be inspired by masculine order, or find it embarrassingly infantile.
    Her opinion of men changing.
    One man may inspire her, triggering primordial processes that will inebriate her into lustful desire, while another leaves her cold and amused by his creative fantasies and artistry with language.
    She may not know it, but she feels the absence in her womb.
    Men may promise its fulfillment, but she intuitively knows she can never be entirely satisfied. She enjoys letting men try, and if she like one, she may even pretend.

    **************************************

    The feminine submits to power, and randomness has an unequalled force.
    It requires no maintenance but occurs from the interaction of order.
    Randomness is a powerful master, and she submits to it, occasionally letting her masculine side resist, testing her boundaries.
    When a man comes her way with similar promises she wants him to test his boundaries, knowing he will fail, but not knowing how fast, or how badly.
    She craves order, and so is relentless in her search for the highest, the best, and the most resistant to attrition.
    She wishes to give birth to a new attempt.
    Once more testing herself, in combination with this other male.

    When men make her promises for absolute order she wants to believe in them, but inside she feels that the promises will be broken.
    Nevertheless, she rejuvenates the attempt, and is most amused by men bragging and fabricating ideals using words.

    Their need for popularity, for the majority, the herd, will differentiate them naturally.
    Their desire will be expressed by an offering of collective salvation, a desire for more instead of less.
    Their addiction will be exposed as obsession.

    They will seek the middle, the centre of their mass....and think of this drive as a will to power.
    At the centre of their mass they will scramble, wanting to distance themselves from the periphery, the edge - furthest point away from the 'outside'.
    There they will seek peace in the eye of the storm, surrounded by the turmoil of their own kind creating a whirlwind of bodies - a womb of flesh.
    The bold will try to distinguish themselves by standing on the edge, relative to the centre.

    On their own, and separately, they will detach and move towards these collectives, filtering themselves out, leaving us in behind, in our dreaded solitude.

    This is when we must prove strong, for the pull will also be in us, and we will be tempted to follow.

    Modern man worships himself, replacing 'god' with 'humanity', preserving the same implications.
    Abrahamism hid its narcissism, offering superficial amends and a lifetime of secret admonitions and guilty self-critiques.
    Modern man shamelessly delights in it. He has overcome the last inhibition on his way to hell.

    Fantasies are secret ambitions, and public ambitions are expressions of secret vulnerabilities and unrequited desires.

    It takes a special sort of intestinal fortitude to accept the fact that one's life is at every moment hanging on a delicate string of uncertainty, and that every moment can be the last.
    A paralyzing fear grips the mind, trying to shake it off with calming internal dialogues, whispering a tender lullaby, to help them make it to the next moment, and then the next.
    The mind grasps at straw, or pulls on its own hair, wanting to keep itself afloat.

    Perhaps not even Cioran could have imagined one who unlike himself, among all else, also managed to commit the 'sin' of becoming a father.
