It’s a very flattering portrayal.
Aeoli, why do you believe that Turkey is ruled by a deep state?
Steve Sailer said so.
Was doing some Hegel reading, most of it undecipherable to me, but this part stuck out:
“[We might ask, for example,] What is this? We answer, It is a lion, a donkey, etc. – [namely] it is. Thus it is not merely something yellow, having feet, etc., something on its own, [existing] independently. Rather, it is a name, a sound made by my voice, something entirely different from what it is in being looked at – and this [as named] is its true being. [We might say:] This is only its name, the thing itself is something different; but then we fall back onto the sensory representation. Or [we might say:] It is only a name, in a higher sense, since to begin with, the name is itself only the very superficial spiritual being. By means of the name, however, the object has been born out of the I [and has emerged] as being (seyend). This is the primal creativity exercised by Spirit. Adam gave a name to all things. This is the sovereign right [of Spirit], its primal taking-possession of all nature – or the creation of nature out of Spirit [itself].”
This strikes me as a key insight. And building on that: The Powers That Be are currently engaged in a culture war against naming things. The media has claimed a monopoly on naming. And this is making us insane. With the power to name things taken away, we can’t really think. Hence all these weird subcultures on the fringe. We are all clamoring to have the right to name things back.
Example: correctly “naming” the idea of egalitarianism vs incorrectly doing so.
Correct: human dignity*, equal before the law, humans as special category because rational animal.
Incorrect: leftist dogma, tabula rasa is true, race and gender are social constructs.
One puts the name “egalitarianism” on something well-formed that can be thought and developed further, the other puts the name on a ball of contradictions and fog that can’t really be thought other than in sloganistic fashion (and thus can’t develop via mentation). One is like calling a zebra a zebra, the other is like calling two frogs and a rock a zebra.
* Now, the obvious edenist retort here is that crom are untermenschen. That would still be something that builds on the model, though. Ie “egalitarianism means everyone has human dignity” is Newtonian, whereas “yes, but some people really are cutting the line to animals really close and we should nuance the concept of dignity to take this into account” is Einsteinian.
Heaviside, am I getting this right?
I suspect I am getting it wrong, because this really reminds me of Ayn Rand’s acolyte Leonard Peikoff (see here: https://mises.org/library/dim-hypothesis)
We might say that Western civilization has a collective case of brain fog.
>* Now, the obvious edenist retort here is that crom are untermenschen.
I’m not fully convinced this is the case. Furthermore, the consequences are dire, and it is clear that all races of man are more highly esteemed by God than the animals. I am always fearful to bring God’s wrath down on my head (hence doubled fear of Israel and the Jews, aside from their ordinary potency). Anything is better than God’s wrath, including the genocide of my family and species.

This is really excellent. Brilliant work here.
Thanks. Maybe you should comb through my comments and do a “best of Edenist Whackjob” dump.
I’d do it myself, but narcissism bias.
Could it be that the dark force (entropy, Satan, the chtonian feminine, etc) has this dismantlement of naming as their chief aim?
If so, it would certainly make sense to promote fear and lust (through immigration and sexual revolution). Put those in as downward attractors and instate a ceiling of confusion via mis-naming (ie the Cathedral) for those trying to strive to go upward.
Result: people descend into animal nature. Fear makes you not want to spend energy on naming because survival mode. Lust makes you not want to do it because urgent pleasure. Easily controlled Loser sheeple.
Those who have energy for naming get trapped by the ceiling of fog and confusion and go insane. Clueless asylum patients trying to out-think a Death star trash compactor.
I guess only the rare few manage to get up unscathed.
‘Those who have energy for naming get trapped by the ceiling of fog and confusion and go insane. Clueless asylum patients trying to out-think a Death star trash compactor.’
Otherwise known as ‘Samsara’. It’s a jungle out there and this shit ain’t the Discovery Channel.
Hopefully winter turns it into a coniferous forest. That would be cool. Ah, just wishful thinking though. It’s 105 Fahrenheit and extremely humid in my room right now. I’m sweating like a pig in a slaughterhouse.
‘The Powers That Be are currently engaged in a culture war against naming things.’ Yes I call that language parasitism. It’s another form of high-functioning information parasitism that thrives under centralised governance like modern banking or modern education.
Amongst large groups everything becomes an information problem and thus the laws of the human jungle of predicated upon information processing. There is a food chain, there are carnivores and there are herbivores and there are parasites, diseases et cetera. People’s ‘spirit animals’ end up looking like animals. So MTs look like Snow Leopards, Snakes look like Snakes et cetera. Slimy toxic swamp creatures look like just that. We already know this anyway I don’t know why I’m telling you. So find your jungle analogue. As a Sabre Tooth/Snow Leopard find a Jaguar/Tiger, as a Mammoth, find an Elephant, as a Brown Bear, find a Sloth Bear.
>Yes I call that language parasitism.
Ohoho, nice. I steal.
Addendum to your description of finely balanced systems: as n increases, fewer and fewer principles really factor into the outcomes and dominate, while the rest barely matter. At the national level, what really matters? Fertility, IQ, drugs, money, religion. Maybe a couple of other things.
However, every little application in every little situation requires extreme finesse in order to maximize the variables. But the people who have this finesse, and can keep their eyes fixed on the most important variables, win.
As Thals are more adapted to an Apex perspective over a large territory they forget that in the jungle there are smaller territories and more parasitic-type mechanisms to limit such behaviour. A jungle wouldn’t be a jungle if one species could just perform a bulldozer-like Apex predation of the whole thing. It’s a delicately balanced ecosystem with many forces at play, of which you are one. Thus any large scale action requires delicacy and finesse. It’s very beautiful actually. Extremely beautiful.
Pine trees are the k-selected analogon to thalz in the world of forests and jungles. Something interesting I’ve seen in Michigan is that you see some of pines in the south, but only very, very rarely in thick, mixed groups of trees. The trees grow very thick here in general. Usually they’re standing off by themselves. In contrast, they are everywhere in the north and you see a lot of forests that are entirely coniferous.
Also interesting about trees: all of the biggest trees are the same two species, and they all grow together. All redwoods grow in the same general area. Same for sequoias. Is this like genius? Maybe the epicenter genius is just an artifact.
Slowly being poisoned to death is a hallucinogenic experience. Like a party. In recognition of this maybe you can evolve your mind to develop neutralisation or transmutation strategies. All medicines can be poisons and vice versa. This is the principle of the Medicine Buddha. But beware if the spell goes wrong you’re gonna get sick. Spiritually sick.
You mixed like five different themes into about 50 words there.
Anyway, I’ve been stupid with alcohol a few times, so I know you’re exactly right. Also the marijuana thing. Really gets the knots out of my back though, life freakin sucks sometimes.
One thing to bear in mind for your blog in general I think is that most of your life complaints can be summed up by: ‘the easy meat is full of maggots and beetles. I don’t like eating maggots and beetles but the snakes and owls don’t mind. They’re icky and they make me sicky. The meat itself will kill me though. I don’t know what to do.’
So the Macrofauna in the jungle learns to either hunt with extreme finesse and silence or adapt some specialised sloth-like behaviour eating bamboo or unripe fruit or termites. Or they migrate.
It’s whatever though. It’s not a perfect analogy but it’s OK for the purpose of what I’m trying to explain I think.
The spirit of the thing got through. My complaint has traditionally been that I can’t find any edible meat AT ALL. However, the discovery of a method of studying in the absence of motivation has given me great hope for the future.
