Metal / I'll be damned. (Vigil of the Third Eye)
« on: June 02, 2014, 01:18:34 PM »
I just checked this forum after a handful of months of disengangement from a serious period of alcohol abuse (as if there is a method of properly "using" alcohol) and am floored that the interzone is gone.

Anyway, I've recently been spinning the most recent Howls of Ebb (English [abuse] notwithstanding) and would like to know what others have thought of the album. Sounds to me like an improvement of proper death metal expression minus the modern aesthetic "LOLgotha" sound that has plagued many-a-modern release.

Most of the time, I isnsist on being right, but it is rarely woth the effort. At best, I apprehend a more useful point of view. This haPpens often on this dmu.org forum.

Oh-ho-ho, so you intend to mock me?  Or make an example of me? Evindently you have no idea how far into the realm of sunbectivity you/I can delve. Recenlty I had a dream. I was a riding a bicycle through forests so steep that that no one without a motorbike would dare vennture. In my dream, I established a whole new park for skaters and bikers.

Clearly this means that no mattwr now how far you've gone, there will be others that follow your path, up until you stop, and then.... others will continue on your path, in directions unoforeseen. Deal woith it or be fogotten (though the latter is not so bad).

Indeed, but you'lll notice that I didn't mention that I mendtioned arguing with intellectuals specifically. I don't know how often I engage in arguments with intellectuals. The last time such a thing happened (out in the open), the gentleman that I was arguing with was only arguing with me because he was afraid that I was a nihilist *to the bone* and was deciding whether or not he should allow me to sleep at his house or kick me out to my car and make me sleep out there. Not that I blame him. Eventually he was convinced that I wouldn't rob his house because I liked him and would only hurt myself for betraing his trust in me.

Anyway, I was referring to the argument presented against me in general, by intellectuals and otherwise alike. They assume that my argument is based on some absurd and archaic function that has been rendered irrelavant by modern living situations. Surely you know better, crow.

Oh, you. Surely you won't argue that imagination is totally unreal? A pain in the ass, to us realists perhaps, but cerrtainly not disconnected from the causal plane that we inhabit.

Hate to derail the thread, but just out of curiosity, what do you consider to be shortcomings of Glass? His Company suite has always floored me, I feel much from it. I will definitely check out Part's music if it is a better take on the style.

I've tried to argue in favor of these observations, but have gotten shot down because people easily turned it into a straw man of the "noble savage" argument and ripped it to pieces. Shameful.

There are lies, there are damned lies, and there are statistics. An autistic person is not "sickly".

The criteria for diagnosis can change overtime more rapidly than can whatever environmental effects may or may not contribute to autism.

In a word, fuck these studies. Autistic kids that I know are the only ones that aren't near totally brain-dead.

Good wife, indeed. It's great to find a woman who takes your relationship to the level where she thinks of your well-being as a single unit, affecting the both of you. Cangratulations to you. Young women can be such young women.

Don't think I'm missing your point, but as world-class-devil's-advocate-in-training, I'd like to point out that imagination is not unreal. Forgive the apparent double-negative.

Didn't ring "limpid", I'm just having a hard time figuring out if your question is rhetorical or just obscured. Though I don't blame your post; I haven't had any coffee yet today.

There are two activities I've found that I can consistently put effort into and receive satisfaction from, every time, all the time. The first is sharpening my body (regular old exercise plus mixed martial arts). I've never had to use my knowledge to hurt anybody but I can if I need to protect myself or someone else, and that is a very gratifying state of mind. The other activity is playing my guitar. I've been doing it for ten years, and have never gotten bored, it just keeps presenting me with new possibilities to explore. My guitar is more valuable than any lover I've ever known.

Lovers... Now, there is an activity that you put put your whole effort into and still walk away empty-handed and empty-hearted.

As for those who do not even try, I can't guess. They are a species different from mine. Maybe (or not) I can help clarify by pointing out that many people "try", but that does not always mean that they put effort into what they are doing. They try for show, and after failing, expect to be compensated for their apparent inability. I don't know if these are the people you are talking about though. Sorry, I *really* need some coffee.

Death is not hard to understand when you pay attention to all the things dying around you.

My behaviour in this forum requires a lot of patience to deal with, does it? I appreciate you dealing with it. I'm not the future, though. I'm the part that ties together what has already happened and what is going to happen. My choices have ensured a bleak future for me but I know that others will walk the same path that I did and do a better job keeping their feet. That's the thing about paths. The more it has been walked on, the easier it is to follow. Mine is a rough one, but it will be easier when others follow, and they are the future.

"Too easy", a really interesting phrase. Evidently contradictory at first glance, but not really so difficult to understand if you really want to.

The reason that most people are going to miss what you're saying, crow, is that many of us are not used to considering the difference between self and perception. Superstitious-religious people believe in a soul or self that is totally intangible and occupies some indeterminate spiritual space that is not affected causally or physically. These kind of people are not going to understand because they don't know that their soul is actually very tangible and very much open to the pressures and hazards of life and death in our world of suns and planets.

Other people are still superstitious but irreligious, and they are going to shut down any possibility of a soul, because to admit that they have one would mean acknowledging the very immediate danger that their soul is in. I could be wrong about this, but considering what most atheists I've talked to have had to say, this seems to be the case. Knowledge of the state of their soul would be overwhelming and fearsome. They are their own perceptions, in their own mind, they have withdrawn their connections with everything that is not their own mind. I am that way, and it is sad. But I'm also fearless compared to them, and I acknowledge my soul, along with the damage I've done to it.
