Re: When the Soul Tires of this Physical Plane

So we obsess about the human world as though the rest of nature didn't exist or matter. What happens when we forget and ignore our roots because we are focused on human abstractions? Neuroses. Overreactions. Depression. Anxiety. Confusion. Instability. Of all the things to focus on in the spectrum ...

Re: When the Soul Tires of this Physical Plane

"Rotten Burden of Existential Darkness" would be a nice name for a punk-rock band. So would "Sticky Putrefaction" and "Walking Human Corpses." Maybe that's why I liked heavy meatal since adolescence. Punk rock? Only the girls all in dark. Milky white skins against dark leather skirts and thong pant...

When the Soul Tires of this Physical Plane

Anyone else here has always felt the rotten burden of existential darkness which wraps around our walking human corpses like so much sticky putrefaction? My soul, if there is any such thing, winces and writhes in my shell of flesh, which breaks down in sickness and threatens my whole notion of exist...

Re: Who Suffers With Me?

Zarathustra said: "I am a railing alongside the torrent; whoever is able to grasp me may grasp me!" Yet Zarathustra was the endless, putrefying cycle of life and death INCARNATE, so that in grasping him one only finally embraces the torrent, and in that acceptance, decides to transcend both good and...

Re: Who Suffers With Me?

My word, you are in a negative mood. Maybe my soul is just finally waking up to this eternal chain of reincarnation which is nevertheless a bottomless pit of death, inasmuch as, like Sisyphus who must roll the bolder up the mountain forever, we keep pursuing happiness and diversion, life after each...

Re: Hi from Portugal

In my opinion, you have revolutionary ideas that I support, but they are complex and maybe they need further maturation before publication to become widely cogent, a request for broad success. Discussing them in this forum is a great way to achieve that. I really need a suitable mass publication fo...

Re: Hi from Portugal

That's why the so called freedom of speech so much proclaimed in our society is so easily circumvented by intolerant people under support of their own rubbish argumentation in which they have the last word (and action). The problem with finally embracing this new and bold society is the residue of ...

The E=mc2 of our New Humanity

I would like earnest and constructive feedback on my groundbreaking essay attempt to set forth a formula for the next stage of our human social evolution. I feel that history has been approaching this step over the course of Western social-philosophical development through the liberal movement, and ...

Re: Hi from Portugal

I hope to participate in many discussions and believe many of you will too in mine, everything in a very constructive way...I'm very open to critics, however acid they are, something I've trained for years, and very hard to attain, I think. But this is the core of freedom of speech...I don't like c...

Re: Are People Rational?

Anyways, thank you for your good intentions; conversation over. I did not mean my comment in a personally antagonistic way so I hope you didn't take it that way. But rather than suggesting nothing more than an esoteric trifle, I would say that a being who identifies as reality itself, as all-suffic...

Re: Are People Rational?

I am who am means I am that which is self-existent, or I am reality itself. Think closely, and you will see. Trying to break it down further will only distract you like trying to guide someone into recognizing an optical illusion. If you don't see, then you won't see by any guidance outside of your ...

Re: Chomsky's "Who Rules the World?"

As to the ultimate human motivation, after survival, being to exercise a 'god-complex' - I disagree. I tend to follow Maslow - and climb his pyramid. But I can't talk for mankind as a whole. I look forward to reading your article in the PN magazine. You are actually getting to the heart of my perso...

Re: Chomsky's "Who Rules the World?"

Why don't you carry on regardless and tell us more about the book... I'm all ears... Well in a few places in the book Chomsky speaks about the "Masters of Mankind." These are, in my ultimate simplification, the power-wielders in our new capitalistic world due to the replacement of the traditional a...
