Metal / Re: Gender in metal
« on: March 22, 2014, 11:06:46 PM »
Most girls I've met that are into metal seem to see it as some kind of fashion accessory, but then again so do most metal listeners in general. I also like people to be natural and the natural way of the female is to be feminine.
This is a good point. Furthermore, it points to the idea that abnormal (possibly disturbed) women could find solace and productivity in art like metal. Consider Lori Bravo and the great metal art for which she is responsible.

Interzone / Re: Now admit it
« on: March 22, 2014, 11:00:15 PM »
I do prefer DMBM and Conservationists "leadership" over crows though. I miss the constant homoeroticism.
I too miss the allusions (and explicit references) to sodomy that they brought.

As far as I know, DMBM is a piece of software.
DMBM / Prozak / Brett is a man. Now, whether or not he is a cyborg is to be determined.

*Brooms are phallic objects that womyn are forced to manipulate via the imposition of socially constructed binary gender roles the white male heteronormative patriarchy has established. Forcing a womyn to manipulate a phallic symbol is nothing but rape, pure and simple*

It's amazing what beauty can be found in such simple things (as others have touched upon). Also amazing is the proclivity and power of people to pervert something so beautiful.

Interzone / Re: The menace of intellect.
« on: March 22, 2014, 10:51:08 PM »
Not to get all semantic, but intellect is really just one of the tools in man's rational toolbox. It can be used to rationalize complex ideas into comfortable (politically correct) ones, as you mention, but it can have a variety of other uses.

With respect to whether or not everything can be made sense of, I think it can. However, so much merely lies outside of the human capacity to make sense of it (maybe even the capacity of any possible organism).

Everything you said from "What is sense, anway?" on is correct, though, and insightful.

Interzone / Re: Command Interpreter.
« on: March 01, 2014, 11:35:24 PM »
Expanding on NHA's point: Given that the human equivalent is genetically/biologically determined in its parameters (or else it wouldn't exist), it would make sense that it has some structurally adaptability, certainly within a social context. In this sense, one could view certain ideologies as hijacking and rewiring the command interpreter.

Example: Some people are given an aptitude test. Group X accounts for 25% of the test takes, but only 5% of those who pass. Observing this, someone notes that Group X must not have sufficiently known the material. Big Brother then informs said observer that such talk is treason. The test must be 'oppressive' and 'discriminatory' against Group X. Unless you recognize this, you will suffer social exclusion, be stripped of an ability to make a living and feed your family, and possibly face criminal charges.
It would seem obvious how said observer's command interpreter might out of sheer need to survive restructure itself to be acceptably insane. One can run wild with thinking of extensions of this example.

Interzone / Conformal Cyclic Cosmology
« on: March 01, 2014, 11:25:11 PM »
Roger Penrose explains his emerging theory of conformal cyclic cosmology
Short version: Roger Penrose is promoting a view of cosmology similar to the eternal recurrence. The two driving principles are a reinterpretation of entropy and the observation that in the absence of the Higgs Boson the universe lacks a natural metric, thus any concept of distance or time becomes meaningless. In light of this, the state of the universe at the beginning of the big bang is identical to that as time approaches infinity. The universe is self-sustaining and cyclic... maybe.

I was quite happy to find a serious attempt at driving physics forward on this topic without resorting to string theory shenanigans.

Interzone / Re: Further ruminations
« on: February 25, 2014, 04:40:43 AM »
This actually ends up being a very good test:

Come up with a good argument why this forum should persist.

Otherwise, consider the countdown started. Crow, I and others who are not inert are looking forward to reclaiming this time, energy, server resources, etc. for something that succeeds.
This place is one of the few in the which the exchange of information, knowledge, and wisdom can take place. Like so much else, this place is cyclic in nature. So many used to bitch about Prozak clones and now apparently the hip shit is calling decent newbies copy-crows. It's nice to have a place where people speak plainly, even if the cost is that a lot of fags show up.

I understand the frustration, though. I mean, this is literally the best I could come up with and it's rather self centered. The negativity is parasitic. Maybe you could keep this place alive if for no other purpose than giving crow a place to crack intellectual skulls.

Anyway, I trust you'll make the right call.

Interzone / Re: Socializing is deterministic
« on: February 25, 2014, 04:31:44 AM »
Free will gets a little more debunked.

Averaging reveals trends and obscures deviations.
Of what averaging do you speak? From what I read, the research was largely based on aggregate analysis. Certainly, averaging played some role in the statistical analysis, but that doesn't constitute the whole of it. Also, they openly admitted to the existence of deviations. I'm not sure where you are going with this.

Interzone / Re: Hierarchy.
« on: February 25, 2014, 04:27:18 AM »
People often use the term 'hierarchy'. But what is it? Is it good, bad, useful, or useless?
It, itself, of course, is nothing. A sound, or series of sounds, used to grunt to somebody else, hopefully to signify whatever it signifies. What does it signify?

Leftists would do away with it altogether, because it seems at odds with their avowed God. That is to say: Equality.
I think it is sufficient to say hierarchy is the inevitable relation of things given the unreality of the Left's God (equality).

Quote
But hierarchy is what you do with it. Which is dependent upon how you see it. Here's how I see it...

{*God > ... > crow*}

{snip}

Hierarchy. An appreciation of how things stack together, according to what works, and what doesn't.
The most important part of which, is an ability to place oneself at the bottom. Not because one has no value, but because value only comes from being able to disappear into one's life, as opposed to life being nothing else than whatever one thinks one wants.
This is probably the fundamental hierarchy in the broadest sense of things. It should be noted, however, how this form recursively propagates throughout everything. I can think of no other pattern which so thoroughly permeates every aspect (and penetrates every orifice) of reality. Hierarchy is the foundation of structure and sanity.

Given the direction this thread is taking, I feel compelled to write the following as essentially a neutral third party:

I wrote for Amerika for a short period, but ultimately stopped because I didn't feel my material was up to the standards of the site and thus I didn't want to drag it down. During my time there, I was essentially given complete autonomy. I could write about whatever I wanted. Criticism was always constructive, and the people there were always direct, honest, and polite. Furthermore, it was assumed that complete agreement would never be a reality, so content was not reviewed to make sure it fit completely in line with some ideology. In no way is Brett a control freak or egomaniac. If you are competent and not an asshole, you can basically contribute as you see fit, which is far more generous than pretty much any other organization on the net.

My experience has essentially been the same with helping to "keep" the audiofile. Even in times when I was flaky or temporarily retarded, the worst I ever got from anybody was indifference.

With regard to the change in this site specifically, I would present the following. The old website had an incomplete version of the Dark Legions archive, was focused mostly on the history of death metal, and did a lot of "lost gem" reviews, etc. The new version has the complete Dark Legions archive and has a front page dedicated to news and original content, including interviews. It seems quite clear that the new approach is more likely to be effective in drawing in people to the relevant content.

I don't know anything about the internal bickering going on, but I know, based on the character of the individuals involved in running these sites, that it takes quite a lot to get under their skin. Given that there is a looming impression of a drastic need to purge this place, I can only assume that some serious bullshit has been happening.

I don't know if I'm considered a defective or not, given some of my previous behavior, but if I'm deemed so I can only conclude the following:
1) I'm a grade A asshole
2) I need to do some serious introspection

I don't consider the people running this place perfect. But they certainly aren't incompetent, backstabbing, or dishonest. They know what they're doing. I can't imagine how they put up with all the negativity. They are certainly better men than I.

myself and a small team have done the following:

* Made a leading Death Metal news source out of this site, and updated our old articles and reviews to a new format that's more flexible;

* Made a leading New Right blog and spread our ideas to a wider community.

This is what it means to do things -- to unite groups based on idea, and further those ideas.
You have found a pattern that works. I'm glad to see these sites doing well and hope it continues. Amerika especially has seem to really taken off.

Internet drama queens and other defectives are being eliminated, as wherever they go, they poison discourse with their negativity. They will be happier at the big forums where they can grandstand for idiots and be acknowledged for their supreme wisdom.
I think there has been some success with infiltration of big forums, but the work is soul crushing and results are slow and small.

Is it a neutral observation, a good thing, or a bad thing, to point to a "...possible autistic hippie-nazi hybrid... with a ...blubbery neckbeard's duff..."?
That was self deprecation on his part. I'm surprised nobody pointed this out for you.

Interzone / Re: What is 'Wisdom', anyway?
« on: September 23, 2012, 09:25:32 PM »
Go on: go with it.
What other ideas occur to you, on this?
They don't have to 'make sense' in everyday terms.
This is cutting edge spiritual research.
This could go all over the place, so I'll stick to the immediate:
Assuming the hypothesis is true, this means wisdom is associated with a structural aspect of the mind and that knowledge emerges from the conscious mind and other unconscious elements utilizing this structure.

Another immediate extension: Since nature is a cruel bitch that bends everything towards her will, there should be a natural tendency towards properly tuning the filters with age and experience. However, the influence of culture (and related phenomena) could vary. Culture "in tune" with reality will aid this process and help maintain the integrity of the structure; culture "out of tune" will compromise the integrity of the structure.

This could naturally be extended to spread light on certain things. Given that there is a general tendency of this process associated with age, we can see that certain politics (specifically conservative) are correlated with this phenomenon. Similarly, others (like liberalism) are inversely related. The conflict between a naturally forming conservative structure with liberal ideology will create internal cognitive dissonance. This will produce bizarre thought patterns and possibly suffering. It's known that conservatives generally report being happier than liberals. (This thread of thought could obviously be continued.)

This also raises a question about how artificial environments could affect this process. This would directly explain the need for certain institutions (especially universities) to have an insulated and isolated nature. In order to counteract the natural tuning, people must be isolated and forced into narrow environments that only (and constantly) reinforce whatever ideology is being used for indoctrination (e.g. political correctness). (This too could continue.)

There are a number of questions that arise. However, without proper empirical investigation, it's difficult to know where to go with it. I'll have to consider this more before making another contribution of thought. I think alternate perspectives might also help shed some light.

Often, when I write, I am not conscious of any thought-process taking place.

...

It seems I know very little, consciously, but that I have access to a vast store of knowledge, when necessary, and this store is accessed with no 'thought' whatsoever.

Thus I imagine that wisdom has a lot to do with accepting reality without mentally modifying it.
Using what-is, as-is, without guile or bias.
This raises an interesting empirical question. It's well established that the mind subconsciously filters information prior to any awareness. These filters are malleable and can be altered by culture and experience. Wisdom is therefore possibly related to experience slowly tuning these filters/lenses/whatever to the right settings, such that our brains are adjusted to viewing things more closely to how they are instead of a warped and distorted view.

This is admittedly rather speculator and simplified pop-psychology, but there must be something to it.

I haven't been to church in over a decade and have seen many churches filled with ideological garbage, but the remaining sane ones may be the answer. Churches are one of the last places where traditional culture and heritage don't have a bad name. At the very least, this would imply they are the institutions for which the effort to restore is minimal. Also, they have some of the most interconnectedness to other institutions (e.g. schools) and have an inherently social dynamic.
