Interzone / Re: Free Will Is An Illusion
« on: August 09, 2012, 04:35:22 AM »
I'll return once more to say this: there is, though, certainly at least one Free Will - a singular entity, whose consciousness continues to shape and maintain the world.

In essence, it has no personality - it is pure creation, the uncaused first cause, "nothing more" than the concept-machine.  Still, it has a Will to Create, and that is the same Will which permeates all things, pushing the borders of space outwards, setting and maintaining the orbits of the planets, informing humans as to their activities, and so on.

It sounds very much akin to that of some of Schopenhauer, like in the World as Will and Representation, I would say. I concur...

Interzone / Free Will Is An Illusion

Free Will Is An Illusion by Victor Stenger. Follow the link below:

http://www.huffingtonpost.com/victor-stenger/free-will-is-an-illusion_b_1562533.html

Quote from the article:

"Philosophers identify several different positions on the question of free will. Incompatibilists hold that free will is incompatible with determinism, the idea that our behavior is fully determined by antecedent causes such as fate, acts of God, or laws of nature. These split into two camps. Libertarians hold that we have free will since humans transcend cause and effect in ways that make us ultimately responsible. Determinists hold that we don't have free will because either determinism is true or indeterminism (randomness) doesn't give us control or responsibility. Both these groups are opposed by compatibilists, who argue that free will is compatible with determinism, or indeterminism for that matter."

Share me your input...Salutations...

Interzone / Equalization tensions could ‘destroy unity’ in Canada

Equalization tensions could ‘destroy unity’ in Canada: Ex-Bank of Canada Chief David Dodge

http://news.nationalpost.com/2012/07/31/equalization-tensions-could-destroy-unity-in-canada-ex-bank-of-canada-chief-david-dodge/

This seems to be another possible "quick fix, wealth distribution" attempt by the federal government. Another typical case symptom, I think at least, on the perpetually continuous polarization of class warfare and division, leading to my country's eventual destruction.

Share me your feedback...Cheers!

Some may be curious - perhaps even genuinely interested but hesitant, some may be merely just "browsing" out of the bordem of their wasted, futile lives.

This is all Dunning and Kruger effect. The incompetent are both unable to determine their own lack of competence and incapable of perceiving intangible value. To them, everyone is about the same and all things are objectively equal, distinguished only by individual preference. Their pitiful behaviour is a result of their ignorant solipsism: if I don't comprehend it then it is offensive and therefore I cannot allow it to exist so I will therefore rail against it until it goes away. Hairless baboonery!

Very well put...If I just might ask, who are/were Dunning and Kruger and what kind of reports did they write or contribute? I've never heard of them and I'm interested to do some more homework on the subject.

Interzone / Re: Growing up... is remembering.
« on: July 10, 2012, 05:36:47 AM »
I just found out, growing up, that to be a grown up is to know that you are not perfect, but above that, to know that others may have the same weakness. A person who is childish may project his parents on other people, therefore being afraid to express his true individuality because that would imply responsibility or being judged for character. If the child is anxious, he/she may take upon hirself the burden of all responsibility possible, past and present, and not be able to sustain the insertion into society, the law, and nature that responsibility represents.

The mature person, on the other hand, will appreciate only the moment, and think: "If I have been trough so much shit, done so much shit wrong, and I'm not too dumb, then who does this person think he is acting like this [that person may also have done the things I have, and be weak like me in those spots, i'm equal]? I'm gonna get mine!".

What I'm trying to say is, if you're shy and insecure, you may use your apparent lack of value on all things past, present and future, even of situations having not to do with the one you're in (The guy is strong, but he's a friend, so you don't have to take into consideration physical combat) as a defense mechanism for lack of trying and to not be exposed in society as a weakling or in something awkward (not the website).

So if you think the situation is under control, do it! You can worry about your value as a human being later.

It cannot get worse, anyway!

I'm a bit confused on the point of your post....I understand the point of enjoying the momentum, realizing your imperfections and humanity as well as the same weakness of others, but after that you run on some kind of tangent that I can't make sense of by your wording.

Are you saying that if you're someone who's weak and insecure, that we should just hide behind some bodyguard's cloak? I'm not sure I understand what your point is. Could you possibly be more specific?

Not yet....But I will right away.

I had no idea that the ELF had devolved rather so quickly, so recently....I guess I haven't followed up with that group in a while.

Of course, I would support more legal, grassrooted acts for environmentalism. Thanks for the input and the link. I'll be sure to review and bookmark it.

The feedback is much appreciated.

http://www.earthfirstjournal.org/

This is probably the closest thing to a legit updating system you'll find, and it's best to order the issues for full updates. ELF began as a radical arm of Earth First!, and whereas today it bares a phantom semblance to it's origin, only the seriously extreme and criminal acts arise under the ELF banner, which operate in cells with free hiving claim... so anyone can be ELF, at any time. However, as a serious and mature advocate for environmentalism I would strongly suggest that your efforts are put towards the LEGAL involvements of Earth First! and other organizations that encourage legal acts of nonviolent resistance and civil disobedience.

The goal of environmentalism is for it to become mainstream, and followed through as serious standard. In our world a violent eco-mafia does nothing. That kind of approach is impractical and will never be accepted. It's best to encourage the owners of such items, businesses and such to abandon their destructive habits. Make the revolution happen ideologically from within.

Does anyone know of the Earth Liberation Front, and if so, does anybody know if they have a new website or blogspot?

I've missed Radio NIHIL. Who do you think could be able to revive the webacasts again or produce new episodes?

Metal / Re: Another "Christian" Black Metal Idiot Argument
« on: June 24, 2010, 07:41:32 PM »
Check out the link below to see what an idiot this false Hessian is to try and legitimize, self-righteously, "holy un-black metal."

http://hubpages.com/hub/Why-I-believe-christian-metal-is-not-an-contradictio-intermini

I hope you enjoy the comical amusement....

I would not categorize that text as a shining example of stupidity. The author clearly expresses views at least nuanced beyond the blunt either/or-ism dichotomy of good/evil God/Satan, recognizing rather that there are different varieties of Satanism and as well there are different varieties of Christianity. For this alone I think his text is at least permissible. However I do not agree with all his interpretations, and also his English is very poor.

I have written an article about the cumbersome relationship between metal music and Satanism which expresses my views on the subject, if anyone is interested.

I will most definitely bookmark your blog post and read it when I get the chance.  It seems very interesting...thanks for the link.

Metal / Re: We are Hessians, not metalheads
« on: June 22, 2010, 05:32:12 PM »
To Parasite: 

Basically, as Cargést shows in the link he provided to you, in a nutshell we've adopted the term "Hessian" to designate ourselves because of the spirituality embodied by both our music and our subcultural way of life - the same, or similar way that the REAL Hessians were in their soldiered way of life and their battle tactics.

How did we let a sitcom convince us that self-indulgence and designer clothes were every woman's right? Three recovering shoppers share lessons learned the hard way.

Follow this link:  http://money.ca.msn.com/savings-debt/mp-dunleavey/article.aspx?cp-documentid=24595560

This article, in my opinion, is only scratching the surface of only one aspect.  I will further debate how such as sitcom has corrupted the spirit of many young women in general in a later thread.  But, if anyone would like to mention anything of the sort, ranging for women's immaturity and low opinion of motherhood to the poison of "neo-feminism," I'd love to hear some input.
