And now they cry!

“And now, they find their Day is over! their power gone! and the throne of this nation possessed by a Royal, English, true, and ever constant member of, and friend to, the Church of England! Now, they find that they are in danger of the Church of England’s just resentments! Now, they cry out, “Peace!” “Union!” “Forbearance!” and “Charity!”: as if the Church had not too long harboured her enemies under her wing! and nourished the viperous blood, till they hiss and fly in the face of the Mother that cherished them!”

No Gentlemen, the Time of Mercy is past, your Day of Grace is over, you should have practised Peace, and Moderation, and Charity, if you expected any yourselves.

I meditate on this whenever an enemy of progress gets too big for their boots and feigns umbrage, especially the Muslims. Especially the Muslims.

The author in particular is Defoe.

Irony at Nyan Thousand

It’s a metaphor, ya dope. It doesn’t even exist in the most abstract form per se. It’s part of a stage theory, on every level: lifespan, evolution and brain development,.

Remember, top level has no memory. That’s how we know the rest exist.

Empiricism 101.

It’s like if I advocated for ravens thinking they were literally like writing desks.
This is literally a false (conception of) consciousness.

Stupid fucking atheists.

There is no thought in consciousness, only the result of it. The product: I think this. You must begin another loop of reference to feedback any way to explain that. The thought process is unconscious. We know alternate states exist in medicine because MRI and anesthesia. Fucking STOP.
The Self, too, is unconscious in root. What do you think therapy is???!

“Conscious awareness” of WHAT, exactly?
It’s like saying there’s no ocean, only the surface of the bloody ocean, because humans can’t touch the bottom!

Stupid people are completely product-driven, too much consciousness, not enough process.
The stupid cannot introspect. How does introspection even happen without an unconscious? But they’re still urge-driven. Well, by golly-gosh gee whizz, I wonder where those urges could possibly come from?

FYI CBT is hilarious and tragically flawed as a modality.

This quote about humility from an atheist tickles me, the opposite of triggering.
Materialism is the opposite of abstract but you’re no dualist?

I guess doing real work would be too hard?

Hey, you forgot your

you and AGW, pick one up for them too!

You’re not science, fam!

If you have feelings for others e.g. family, you know Dennett’s bigoted view of the human experience is backward bullshit. It doesn’t even work if all humanity were extreme spergs, characterized by low affect and empathy, the highly self-involved and callous, since the fears/phobias/urges drive them more than the rationalizations that follow. We have studies on this – people can explain away any old shit they do consciously, it lies.

Time is what matters. As time goes by, you and I will be carried inexorably into the mainstream of our period, even though we’re unaware of what it is. And later, when they say that young men in the early Taisho era thought, dressed, talked, in such and such a way, they’ll be talking about you and me. We’ll all be lumped together…. In a few decades, people will see you and the people you despise as one and the same, a single entity.

The genius of Swami Vivekananda

I am not averse to admitting foreign genius, in fact, I wish I had a surplus to talk about. This man has long been overlooked by traditionalists online.
If the name seems familiar, he was friends with Mr Tesla.


I do like some of the Eastern mystics but it’s trying to source pure translations, untainted by modern bias.

Many of his works can be found for free online though, if you want a go.


I made Diogenes big again by telling everyone that story about the chicken. The Tesla connection should be enough for Swami. We need to get more good quotes out there, more civic ideas, to drown out the celebrities.

These uplifting quotes are merely positive memes.

If we could find the canon of philosophy that makes Asians so based, Whites would be more competitive.

It is difficult to quibble with someone who believes in you.

Much like Tesla and all other men who don’t feel threatened by ability, he praised women too, and our ability to make society good.

“The natural ambition of woman is through marriage to climb up , leaning upon a man but those days are gone . You shall be great without the help of any man , just as you are .”

That is a role model.
