Futurism and the State - Cutting the Throat of We All (deals with the devil of history)

Something doesn't sit right with us concerning the Futurist Manifesto. Its the same that others have found troubling, the 9th, which we will now quote:

9 .We will glorify war—the world’s only hygiene—militarism, patriotism, the destructive gesture of freedom-bringers, beautiful ideas worth dying for, and scorn for woman.

Yet the reason that it doesn't sit well with us, isn't for the same reasons that it doesn't sit well for others. Well if it is a shared reason, its something we feel is worth repeating. Yes, we see this glorification of war as problematic but not entirely, yet it is this issue we find undermining their very purpose. This glorification of war as the worlds singular hygiene becomes problematic in its manifestation. It becomes problematic for the same reason that Futurism was at odds with some of Italian Fascism. Why? Because of the reality of who controls the violence. This call for militarism and patriotism undermines the destructive gesture of freedom-bringers and beautiful ideas worth dying for, because it is bound and tethered it to the past, to the very history they seek to break from becoming modern. As they embrace the machine, fusing man and his mechanical creations, man's electric heart beating to a love of what? Not women but country!? No beautiful ideas worth dying for. Not relics of the past and dusty kept men (and women we would add, we would even say sexual biology has nothing to do per-say with being a Man in this figuration, all can be Men). Ah, and this brings us to The State. For unless all truly falls into the chaos of anarchy or a communist withering of the state, then there will not be these freedom-brings and beautiful ideas worth dying for. Because love of country, patriotism are a matter of nations and state (not merely the people, who comprise the nation), of birth-right, of language (heritage of a mother tongue) it a matter of the past, it preserves the museum and libraries. It smooths the striated discrete and abrupt moments, events, in history. It creates a mythical story and a straight narrative from past to present, really imagined as being. And this line is the line the military man must toe, not for his individualism but as a pack animal, bounded together for the state, the very twigs to be scarified as kindling for other men's desire. Death, not life is served. The Futurists call for living men.

They seek to bring back the danger, the vitality, they see in a romantification of war. Yet things aren't like that. As long as the State exists, as long as the Nation continues as a State, their gesture was doom to be in its service. The notion that national-war leads to great health is a perversion of Nietzsche great-health, for he understood that the nation is enmeshed with its history and its past, these libraries of relics that no long speak of life, but smell of death and decay. We get that the idea was to prune the dead leaves, to cull the heard and make it fit again, we admire the vitality of life sought. But the war they might imagine, a war that is more than simple a military battle, its a spirit of which to approach life, doomed by their very opportunism and use of realpolitik. They seem to miss or in the zeal occult the reality that past is not dead, but can live and lives like a distant friend. Just like Nietzsche writing to future friends. By their aligning with the state, with fascism, they cut a deal and their own throats. They cut short the freedom-bringers, the beautiful ideas worth dying for, for the glory of the One. This vision of the One, mythic would subsume and ruin the vital. And so, let us never make that mistake again. For the holder of legitimized violence is the state, but truly what is legitimization, but mutual recognition among 'brothers', friends, equals even (that band of brothers that says We*). This mutual recognition is how regimes of power are created, and sustained, and yet, there is also the self-authorization. That is, one or a group as one self-authorizes and does because they can. Legitimate or not, they do. That very power of violence can also be used against the very State that would attempt to monopolize this violence, forcing one recognize it, consent to its power, as if you ever had a choice. Power  gives choices, because power set the conditions for the very choices you are allowed. So, we must learn the lessons and not make the same mistakes and same deals that trade away our beautiful ideas. We must not sell selves and our souls, our very creations and creativity. For cashing in can also be cashing out. And the true inspired beauty of what could of been, turns into a commercialized version thereof, devoid of potency, little resplendence and resemblance, trite and empty, filler without nourishment it should have become.  

*on this we Futurism could pair will with our contemporary understanding of communism as explicated by Alain Badiou, see Logic of Worlds, and Metapholitics for more information.

The Corner's Return


It's been quite a while since I wrote on this blog. I am just going to make a quick, short, statement. Basically, I just want to inform people that Shitty Bears Corner is coming back online. It had been caste away for deletion, to become fragments of dusty layers found as remnants in various hard-drives across the globe. That being said, we are resurrecting this blog. And returning to our work, which is a sacred-political mission. We will leave you with the words of St. Bataille.

"We would die quickly if we had not taken care to insert ourselves into a system of economic exchanges. Its hardly any less necessary for the life of the mind: the most profound difference may be related to the fact that the mind can die of inanity without any real suffering." -- Bataille

Small statement on Free Radicals and Bridge Work

Beginning with the concept of the free radical as metaphor. This is fairly obvious, we had actually thought of this, and pitched it to a group of scholars called The Uncertainties Studies Group, but a philosopher shot us down (as all metaphors have limits, and as such I was rudely dismissed). But a few years later, of course it would be, Zizek is on YouTube speaking of this fairly obvious idea of the free radical as that radical in the system that needs to be neutralized, which is the darling of food-stuff because of the anti-oxidant selling point, regardless of its validity. Free radicals; imagine the world from an airplane view. One may look down at the people. You have all seen the fast motion films of people in stream moving on the pathway (predefined) to and fro their destinations. Little packets of energy flowing this way and that way on the streets. The flow to places that are predefined, that are mapped, that are designated. It is when the packet does not go where is supposed to, when it starts to interrupt the system that we have a problem. But perhaps we need to go back and establish why we see ourselves this way. We must turn to the industrial age, and the beginning of the end of traditional or classical Feudalism.

The industrial age gave us the nuclear family. That says a it all really. We had large families that worked on farms and then capitalist needed labor, and started buying farms (the birth of agribusiness). Social programs and scarcity threat loomed and acted to control people. In the 1900s social workers would slowly get into the act, first against the state and then as it handmaiden. Moving quickly here the point is that for concrete material reasons of social relations, as paradigms shifted into a mechanical outlook akin to physics, as noted in the works of people like Foucault, we became labor-time (see Karl Marx). It is not any wonder that our logic gave birth to economics that embraced Taylorism and Fordism, this was a tactic for cheap labor, just educated and skilled enough. Trainable, but not self reliant. Could work without having to be told twice, but for information on that start with a book called Introduction to the Reading of Hegel by Kojeve. Anyway we were broken down into a nuclear family, sometimes extended as the needs of the state and its wars dictated. We needed to be particalized so we could be detached from the family and then when labor forces of capital demanded, we could be detached from one job and flow into another. Indeed this is a modern problem that job re-training is supposed to help, and a reason so many are going back to university.
Yet keeping everyone flowing on the preestablished and approved paths is not easy, it too requires force, policing. So, we have the occasional free radical, something outside the system, often rich or very poor (jobless at least, or an artist). The point is a free radical also has free time (usually). These free radicals have the potential to break free other radicals and to change the system. But what about bridge work.

Free radicals can connect, they can move around and they can connect different networks. Networks that are often on the same paths, with similar missions and functions but working in isolation, with no view of the other groups or networks. So the free radical has the potential to bridge this groups; to act as a bounding agent (but one that can move always from the two agencies, ideally, and have then adhere). Once bonded the radical become free again to act as another bridge.

There is much more to this, but this is all I am up to for on sitting. Forgive typos, we wrote it straight out, one shot like the music.

noticing cracks in the egg

Its about sound
Its about hard fast sound
About riding pumping, colliding, thumping, humping
Going down, all the way through and out into the unknown
Its about finding another place, that is as real as life, as this voice, or is it a dream, a program
We keep waking up or returning too it… to what do we identify, fiction touches on the insane in its most lucid form, as pulp fiction and high art… it gets hard to tell when you start to look at it
We don't want to look at it, but we find ourselves staring upon it everyday, even seeking it out, collecting it, having it, as if it signifies, gives us power, souls on shelves, housed and harness, available, inhuman lovers

We were sent on a mission, by Control, Control, what is control, we must return to the works of Burroughs, seek out what he noticed, what he caught a glimpse of, Hussurl, Husserl, we know that he was onto something, but also, physical,  meta-physical, mutiphysical, immanent river of dreams, an evil river, of magical thinking… what happened? Have we gone mad? There and back again, we find our answer, but were we really looking while seeking, we could not see what was as we say what we wanted of it… were we ever sane in our reason, in our rationalities? Do we hide or imbibe in the horror? Unspeakable… not because we don't want to, but because it stops the brain, it short-circuits the mind, shatters our world, it makes it impossible, then difficult to think (straight) again, at all, stalling, faltering, stammering, it makes one have to Think, to think a thought beyond the awareness of being trapped in a body, trapped as a body? Even if such a small utterance of sense… fragments, fragments is all we get, out... And to dissociate, we need to be, no exit, but shifting, we wondered what weird would be going on, yes, we wondered. Sneaking suspicion, we were simply deluded, full of wordy shit, rhetorical and empty upon close inspection. But there is never time for that, rabbling on is all that matters, keep going, even while asking why? Why? We know no answer to satisfy, why not? And if so, then what? What if we are asking the wrong questions… or just another reason to like Deleuze, we see it clearly, but look at the comfort, as we start to envision an image, an old painting of the prince of philosophy, and Deleuze in his well worn derby hat.

Announcement: moving onward with other projects, St. Stephen


What we will no longer be bringing you:
We just wanted to let you all know that St. Stephen and Shitty Bear's Corner, aka The Corner, will return to its 'normal format'. What that means is we will be moving away from the work of the One True TOPI Tribe, as that is currently being handled through the Jack Frost Committee. The Jack Frost Committee is a psychick work-team, directed by Aglaeca, and supported by thee others. Aglaeca, along with St. Stephen, engage in a tunneling of the material potentials the present themselves through a third mind, a literary, entity, Thee Uncondemning Monk. For information on that group-subjectivity, see Thee Uncondemning Monk and related sites.

an personally designed mug, lost to the world
What we will be bringing you:
St. Stephen will be back in the coming months. He will be bringing you work information and the sort of offbeat information that you have come to expect. Articles on such things as war and failed programs, to "academic" translations of non-English language texts. Concerning the translations, the are expect to be concentrating in the field of philosophy and literature, in the languages of German and French. Whatever the subject, whether is be a poem or a stop light on some fragment of news worthy information, all we can say is change is bounded and to happen as long as we unfold.

The Uncondemning Monk: "In Site 23 Insight 32" fan-release

Greetings from The Corner,

We have just released one of the working tracks for the working project, Skiddoo 32: On 23 Skiddoo Street. The song was created, in part, to be part of a longer One True TOPI Tribe Compillation, which is yet to be released (the production is in the works, perhaps even as i type this blog post)... but as we have said, we will be periodically releasing tracks that are related to the Skiddoo 32 project, as they come to fruition.

front cover for "In Site 23 Insight 32", by Thee Uncondemning Monk

That being stated, without further ado, from Thee Uncondemning Monk, a new track: "In Site 23 Insight 32"

---We hope you enjoy.

Of course, we will be posting again, to let you know that the new compilation is out, as well as other "songs" that are being worked upon, including those that have yet to be born, even conceptually. As a project, Skiddoo 32 has no end in site (yet it is imaginable that this working title will one day be retired, and a new project started). In the meantime, earlier related OTTT musical/spoken-word works can be found on thee TOPI-Network.

Project: Skiddoo 32 (on 23 Skiddoo Street) & Tinfoil Monster: [cut-up-n-united]

Finally Thee Corner is moving in an new direction... The name Shitty Bear is back!

Currently Aglaeca is working with members from thee OTTT for an OTTT compilation. While this project is getting ready, we thought we would release the full project here, perhaps as it unfolds, a documentary to a documentary projects; that is---cut-ups are being produced--scripts are being rehearsed---the world is taped---they told you---in the 20s, 30s, 40s... listen man... in the morning... those coughs move in a broken wave, it goes silent, the comes back up, a circadian rhythm of death rattles just as the sunlight casts shafts of dawn into the room.

"But expelled, front necessity. solved; protons. things. anything, tethered. no-where, Even man, conclusion... exploration... thee essay is metaphysical, its essence rips pages its-self quotes by recovering additional consequences (permutations) an essence that separates spirit (cut-up) and knows time, present-mundane stating today. geologist, nothing believe (not) space, (nor) atom, course accept thy Biblical self" (Adam Spiral Earth, 2003).

The working project title is Skiddoo 32 on 23 Skiddo Street: and plans are forming (have been forming) for an experimental yet loosely conceptual song which will be cut-up into sections, or perhaps shorts,  following in the cut-up tradition (which includes permutations), by adding a cut-up-story of our own, as a small homage to the great names of Gysin, Burroughs, Genesis Breyer P-Orrdige. Skiddoo 32 (on 23 Skiddoo Street) is to be released the 23rd (23/06/2011).

Writing and Musical Works by St. Stephen and Aglaeca... in the meantime, check out the cut-ups, 1st of what we see as a new furtial ground for further production [an accessible medium to allow the masses the power of the play, or thee theatre...]: We present, an AASS Production, writen, created, and produced by Aglaeca and S. Swart*, from Poor Girls Theatre, we present:

One True TOPI Tribe (OTTT): a new way on... a legacy gifted

OTTT, is to be, is already, a legacy that is a gift, a gift of a community, spelled quite differently (individuals couming to-gather together, not as One but in coum-unity)... those who are able to read these works, read this mission statement, and this mission statement and the pod casts on the OTTT page... "and you would begin to understand, that the heart and the mind, in the third mind, gods as thee manifest infinity of creation" to understand what is happening... the moment has arrived, we have not been waiting, we have been doing and now its time as we know it is. T.I.M.E to coum together with more of thee others who are waiting, working, going further, doing more or less than the smallest and the largest of known time and space/ this instant/ desire/ sigil/ reverberating, subverting control, short-circuiting desire... and there is Thee Bible, a history and a guide, not a command but an insight related through a kind of personal honesty (which is rare in these parts, indeed). That there is presented to us, from the past, a continuously serious truth which offer up methods for deprogramming, that which you are and can becoumE more... as the world of the flat and common state peoples fails; we turn to the truth of our fictions and begin to dream again, to dream with each other as in to make a new, to make anew and to renew by moving on... akin to all alternatives and limits exposed by their seekers, we bring you Thee OTTT...

NetLogo: modeling micro and macro behavior of multiple 'agent'

Okay, back in the day, perhaps the mid to late 1980s, Sim City came out. It was exciting, as it seem to offer the promise or at least the possibility of modeling reality. But of course, there is the problem of variables, and there are so many to take into account. And then there is the problematic of a subject and of a subjectivity that actually corresponds to empirical or real world situations. And perhaps, one would assume that by now people, scientists, would be using simulated worlds to test out their theories, but this is not the case. Or rather, this is slowly becoming the case, such that what was once understood as gaming, and hence not serious, is now being taken serious by academics in a range of disciplines, form the Humanities to Biology, Economic theory to Postmodern theories of self and subject, hence agents.

This bring me to mention a program called NetLogo, which does all the above. I am very new to it, but I am learning  And in my excitement, I thought I would share this information with you all.

Osama Bin Laden: does it even matter?

By now you have probably heard the news that Osama Bin Laden is dead. But I want to ask, what does it matter? Is this not a shallow symbolic victory? Allow me to explain, before you click way, or chalk this up as something or other (some type of label or category).

I remember the day of 9/11, that is, I remember something I wish I had taped. I wish I could find. For it was the first time I had ever heard the news, any news organization, speak with such candid honesty. It went something like this. One reporter said, do we know that it was Bin Laden? No, said another corespondent, but, at this point it does not matter, the country needs a face for this horrible tragedy. Of course I was like, wow, did I just really hear that? I knew what I heard, but that level of honesty, almost unheard of. Okay... fast forward to a few days ago, when it was first reported that Osama had been killed by US forces in Afghanistan. Okay, he is dead. Let us just accept that, and ignore the reality that he has unknown amounts of doubles or whatever else may cast suspicion on the validity of this really being the death of that infamous Osama Bin Laden. Let us say it was, that he is dead. So what? What does it matter? Does that put an end to Al-Qaeda?

We have been told in the past, that it really does not matter if we caught Osama or not, as there were already new leaders emerging, and that at most it would be a symbolic victory, a sense of vindication, some might say, an empty victory? So, seriously, what does this matter? It might matter that we turned him into a martyr? The symbolic power of this event can be spun many ways, which is the grand power of rhetoric, maybe even logic, or both. Do you know how this makes America safer? As if we can ever be safe, just read about what Oppenheimer told the US government shortly after the invention of the atomic bomb, about the possibility of stopping a nuclear attack, in particular, a suitcase nuke. You know what he said? Once it invented, once its been done, once its out there, there is no way to stop its proliferation (its just science for bleeps sake), in fact, that might be the wrong move altogether. OF course, they did not really want his opinion, the commission just wanted to hear what they wanted to hear, and that was not it. So tell me, why should I even care about this? Are we going to make it a holiday?

God and Leviathan: God plays with himself.

"In the last three hours of the day, God sits and plays with the Leviathan, as is written: "you made the Leviathan in order to play with it." ---Talmud, Avodah Zarah.

But if we consider that in Job God is expressed (intensively) as Leviathan, we only need to think the name Spinoza or Pantheisms (so logical are its conclusion, when heaven falls to earth) to know how right it is to say, "God plays with his selves!"---That is Joyous, and sufficient reason to celebrate!

So mote it Be.

Difference and Repetition: Deleuze and the Third Time

Greetings readers,

Gilles Deleuze
The last part of the "Conclusion" of Difference and Repetition, focuses on time, as tripartite, from whence comes a Deleuzean-Nietzschean concept, an apocalyptic of the third time. A time which is said to "re-form a strange loop which in no way resemble the earlier cycle [time as a circle, Hegel and the Absolute idea, his dialectical method, for example], but leads into the formless, and operates only for the third time and for that which belongs to it" (p. 296, Eng. Trans. by Patton). Now does this concerns simulacra, yes, affirming differences, nomadic and crowned anarchies, yes. We have no more questions as we have no less erased what was here before, as we are drops in the ocean, dissolved cognito, the one saying the uncountable multitudes. It is an announcement, that we have read to the point of no longer knowing, we come face to face with ignorance and knowledge, and hence we must think, we must write.

Nietzsche: Part I, Section 10, of Genealogy of Morals [re-print]

The beginning of the slaves’ revolt in morality occurs when ressentiment itself turns creative and gives birth to values: the ressentiment of those beings who, denied the proper response of action, compensate for it only with imaginary revenge. Whereas all noble morality grows out of a tri- umphant saying ‘yes’ to itself, slave morality says ‘no’ on principle to everything that is ‘outside’, ‘other’, ‘non-self ’: and this ‘no’ is its creative deed. This reversal of the evaluating glance – this essential orientation to the outside instead of back onto itself – is a feature of ressentiment: in order to come about, slave morality first has to have an opposing, external world, it needs, physiologically speaking, external stimuli in order to act at all, – its action is basically a reaction. The opposite is the case with the noble method of valuation: this acts and grows spontaneously, seeking out its opposite only so that it can say ‘yes’ to itself even more thankfully and exultantly, – its negative concept ‘low’, ‘common’, ‘bad’ is only a pale con- trast created after the event compared to its positive basic concept, satu-rated with life and passion, ‘we the noble, the good, the beautiful and the happy!’ When the noble method of valuation makes a mistake and sins against reality, this happens in relation to the sphere with which it is not sufficiently familiar, a true knowledge of which, indeed, it rigidly resists: in some circumstances, it misjudges the sphere it despises, that of the common man, the  rabble; on the other hand, we should bear in mind that the distortion which results from the feeling of contempt, disdain and superciliousness, always assuming that the image of the despised person is distorted, remains far behind the distortion with which the entrenched hatred and revenge of the powerless man attacks his opponent – in effigy of course. Indeed, contempt has too much negligence, nonchalance, com-placency and impatience, even too much personal cheerfulness mixed into it, for it to be in a position to transform its object into a real carica-ture and monster. Nor should one fail to hear the almost kindly nuances which the Greek nobility, for example, places
in all words that it uses to distinguish itself from the rabble; a sort of sympathy, consideration and indulgence incessantly permeates and sugars them, with the result that nearly all words referring to the common man remain as expressions for‘unhappy’, ‘pitiable’ (compare deilo/v, dei/laiov, ponhro/v, moxqhro/v), the last two actually designating the common man as slave worker and beast of burden)–and on the other hand, ‘bad’, ‘low’ and ‘unhappy’ have never ceased to reverberate in the Greek ear in a tone in which ‘unhappy’ predominates: this is a legacy of the old, nobler, aristocratic method of valuation that does not deny itself even in contempt... The ‘well-born’ felt they were ‘the happy’; they did not need first of all to construct their happiness artifi-cially by looking at their enemies, or in some cases by talking themselves into it, lying themselves into it (as all men of ressentiment are wont to do); and also, as complete men bursting with strength and therefore necessar- ily active, they knew they must not separate happiness from action, – being active is by necessity counted as part of happiness (this is the ety- mological derivation of en’ pra/ttein)29  – all very much the opposite of‘happiness’ at the level of the powerless, the oppressed, and those rankled with poisonous and hostile feelings, for whom it manifests itself as essen-tially a narcotic, an anesthetic, rest, peace, ‘sabbath’, relaxation of the mind and stretching of the limbs, in short as something passive. While the noble man is confident and frank with himself (gennaiˆ ov,  ‘of noble birth’, underlines the nuance ‘upright’ and probably ‘naïve’ as well), the man of ressentiment is neither upright nor naïve, nor honest and straight with himself. His soul squints; his mind loves dark corners, secret paths and back-doors, everything secretive appeals to him as being his world, his security, his comfort; he knows all about keeping quiet, not forgetting, waiting, temporarily humbling and abasing himself. A race of such men of ressentiment will inevitably  end up cleverer than any noble race, and will respect cleverness to a quite different degree as well: namely, as a condi-tion of existence of the first rank, whilst the cleverness of noble men can easily have a  subtle aftertaste of luxury and refinement about it: – pre-cisely because in this area, it is nowhere near as important as the complete certainty of function of the governing unconscious instincts, nor indeed as important as a certain lack of cleverness, such as a daring charge at danger or at the enemy, or those frenzied sudden fits of anger, love, rev-erence, gratitude and revenge by which noble souls down the ages have recognized one another. When resentment does occur in the noble man himself, it is consumed and exhausted in an immediate reaction, and therefore it does not poison, on the other hand, it does not occur at all in countless cases where it is unavoidable for all who are weak and power- less. To be unable to take his enemies, his misfortunes and even his misressentiment – and here we have his deed, his creation: he has conceived of the ‘evil enemy’,  ‘the evil one’ as a basic idea to which he now thinks up a copy and counterpart, the ‘good one’ – himself ! . . .

24   ‘Oi’ is an interjection expressive of pain. A person whose life gives ample occasion for the 
use of this interjection is ‘oizuros’.
25   ‘not prosperous, unfortunate’.
26   ‘tle¯nai’ = to bear, endure, suffer. A person who must endure things is ‘tlemon’.
27   ‘to have bad luck’.
28   ‘accident, misfortune’.
29   This expression (eu prattein) has something like the ambiguity of the English ‘do well’ =
‘engage in some activity successfully’ or ‘fare well’. There is no expression in common use in

Socrates the Virtual Reality Experience: Education Adaptation

What if you could interact with the ancient Greek philosopher, Socrates?

Opposite Appendages, connected by an invisible body, duality:
choice of the Good and Bad; bodies we are mixtures

With virtual reality, in its present state, this is possible. I have been thinking about this for a long time, and because I want to see this come to fruition, I have decided to take the risk and put my idea out there. But if someone does think this is a good idea, and can help, I hope that they would involve me in the project. So if you are seriously interested leave a comment, but not that you have to be seriously interested to leave a comment, no not at all.

The idea is simple a virtual reality version of Socrates, but this, to my mind, immediately brings to mind the question of version, which Socrates? And by that I mean, what rating version? Not that there are not alternatate and competing versions, brought together to form a realistic Socrates. All of which is culled from fragments, that is various anceint sources, who speak of Socrates, for Socrates, as Socrates, with Socrates... but I am moreover thinking of the fact that Socrates taught boys many things, including sexuality. That is right, do you have you child or student learn about the real, that is actual Socrates, the Socrates that practiced pederasty (for a good article, see a text called Fuck You Socrates, which is a text from a peer review journal).

So do we stay faithful to tradition, to history, to the total educational experienced, or do we edit reality, as we already do with our history (which have no choice but to be selective, but often it is a matter of not degrees, but of Good verse Bad history, and what history should be, that is ought be, which is alway a choice, a choice which is never completely free, as it is forced to obey the dominate logic of the discipline (and yet resistance is possible, necessarily so). But back to the basic question, and I would of course given the opportunity, be interested in building the immoral or amoral or differently moral version of the "real" Socrates, which in turn would mostly be forced by standards and practices, concerned moms, and the media that instills fear in them, and all other institutions that play their parts/roles, as they act as mechanism of control, to be Socrates-lite, PG-13 or even G.

Now, is that how we raise adults to be mature beings, with lies that cover the nasties of reality? The same attempt was committed by the King who sired Siddhārtha Gautama, who became Buddha, brought about by this dichotomy of the Good life, verses the life of Suffering. And on that note, Virtual Nietzsche, would also be vastly interesting, as his reevaluation of all moral calls also for a hierarchal society, not unlike the Brahman Caste System, and as such, Buddha stands opposed to Nietzsche, as suffering is for the later the way to vitality, to suffer to the point of joy, as Buddha too suffer to the point of revaluation, of a Hegel unity of opposites in ecstasy, to the point right before (pure annihilation) Nirvana, and returns to the Hindu idea that from Kali Yuga we will all ascend together to the next age of time (God), Sayta Yuga.

I will end there with more brought up than discussed. And anyone interested in putting together a virtual reality version of any philosopher, let me know. I have some computer programming skills (and computer skills), a decent understanding of philosophy and literature (I have the equivalent of a Master's degree in Philosophy, which I will be awarded after I finish my Doctoral Work in Comparative Literature (only a few short years left, thank Bog)), and would welcome anyone who will take this seriously.

As always, let us here on the corner know that you where here, leave a comment... for a good beginning on the type of research in area of artificial intelligence programs please review this link: computer programing and the Socratic method.

Underground Clarity

Underground Clarity

One stain on the mind and too long into its ground
Happy are those that in those moments hear not the sound
Those gurgles
Sell it all, remove the lice

That isn’t the way its meant to be
The way you speak to me
In the morning was sun
The saturnalia we are undone
Sadly she whispers to you now...

We have waited
in the clouds
and its too late
the summers gone
We thought we would, couldn’t, get along

And now its done
Its done, under the sky without sun
When the moon is still
The world rests and reels
Rests and Reels

The Gurgle
I hear it still
with underground clarity

domestic terrorism: end of days religions (cults) in America

Isn't it about time America turned its eyes towards Christian end of days groups as terrorist? For example, Scientology, do a key term search "Scientology and terrorism". Interesting results don't you agree. How about Latter Day's Saints (or Mormon's). Try searching about them, satellites, end of days, and agribusiness. Look for information about how they are preparing for the apocalypse, because the US of A is the place of the New Jerusalem. Even William Blake, with his Vision of America, thought the Americas would be have a pretty special destiny. This follows right along with Hegel, and a long tradition of American Exceptionalism. The seeds of the old are planted in the new to bloom. Yes, we are a bloom. Perhaps its already happening. Where does the freedom of Religion, of active thought, end? What about Christian groups that look forward, and materially aid, the coming of Jesus Christ, "preparing" for the end of the world, speeding up kairos? Aren't these groups creating problems, causing wars to end all wars? There is much to be said about groups that control, or are supported by such large numbers. Any thoughts?

How to Dedicate You Soul to Satan

Making a Commitment to Satan

Had I as many souls as there be stars, I'd give them all for Mephistopheles!"
-Dr. Faustus

*Please read the Frequently Asked Questions at the bottom of the page.

What happens when I make a formal commitment to Satan?
Satan looks out for his own. Satan gives us an inner strength and we become very strong in spirit. Unlike right hand path religions, where adherents are forever praying and searching for their god, Satan comes to us on his own. Many times, we can feel him. He comes to guide us when we get down, worried, or are experiencing problems.

He snaps us into line and directs us as to what we need to do to be focused and happy.

The foundation of Spiritual Satanism is in our finishing Satan's work upon humanity. This is the goal of the godhead, and is accomplished through power meditation. Humanity is currently at a very low level spiritually. When we begin to meditate, we experience profound positive changes within our lives. Satan and his Demons (The Original Gods) protect us and look out for us as we transform and achieve personal power. With Satan, we have protection that outsiders do not have. We can advance in the powers of the mind and soul as far as we wish. For outsiders, this can prove dangerous.

6-Year-Old and a Gun?

I Love You Mr. Pistol
And now for our question of the week:

How the fuck did this happen? A Six Year old with a Gun? 

Let me fill you in, the headline is an eye catcher: 3 Students Shot After Gun Brought to School by 6-Year-Old Accidentally Fires.

Besides the headline, all the Fox story really says is, "Police are investigating how the boy obtained the gun."

So that leaves much room for speculation. If you are reading this post, please comment on how you think this all went down?

Mao in Low Format

Maybe schizophrenic
Okay machine
I don't think I'm a' gunna speak

Roll, roll you down
That's that, how the story goes
Roll, roll your bones
Umbee it's better, taken from the sole
Roll, roll your own now
That's that, as the story grows
Roll, on your home
Is it better taken from the (w)hole

La da de, la de da
La da de, la de da
La da de, la de da
De dum, dum, dum, dum, de da

It's okay, there machine
Wash me out
From the inside spleen
Outside's Hilrolya
Michael's pile of dream
We're situated insolation
Abbot you under,
The terrible Think King

a poem by Blank Black and Black Blank
