Skimming throught this list I personally I think you are better off not doing what kuhn would call "normal science" (ie reading a whole bunch of stuff related to the anusian paradigm) but rather read fundamental books of all fields you want to understand.

History - "Europe - A history"
Mathematics "The Road to Reality" - Penrose
Physics "On the should of giants" Hawking
Philosophy "The passion of the western mind" Tarnas

etc

Taking this approach is far more fruitful though definately more "work"

I'm an INTJ black metaller nationalist fascist.


nationalism and fascism/totalitarianism are incommensurable even though a lot of internet propaganda would like you to believe otherwsie. academics have tried to define fascism, with some difficulty so I am assuming that you are referring to rise of the 'militaer maechte' of early 20th century. according to hannah arendt these only used nationalism as a, in relation to their other propaganda, minor form of propaganda. fascists did not like the nation state because it was too confined. as corrupt correctly points out, imperialism is not nationalism and, as the case of the 2nd ww illustrates, often go hand in hand with the decay of traditional nationalism.

well, given the above varg quote, it seems as thoughprison has successfully removed vargs idealogical convictio / his will to fight (which brought about his current quandary) or in the least his thymos or spiritedness which, by the way, was what gave birth to those amazing albums. it could thus be speculated that the music he has been composing in his cell will be imbued with a wholly different set of emotions.

the above quoted statement by him is particularly interesting if you recall what he said before he entered prison as was quoted in lords of chaos. he said something in the vain of:"prisons are like monasteries. when you get out your only much stronger." all of this only conffirms what plato already showed with his divided line: imagination is the lowest form of cognition. so, i think you guys who are contemplating murdering people and then cruising to some sweet cell for 21 years are fucking idiots.

Oh, well that's a little different to what I've experienced (minoring in sociology)  :(


to continue on the sociology tangent you might want to look into aristotles philosophy of science according to which sociology is a pseudo science simply because the way you divide up society completely depends on your own ambitions and goals. which makes the whole idea of marxism and sociology seem less scientifically significant but still somewhat annoying.

My advice: LEARN GERMAN so that you can READ NIETZSCHE. Anything less is like listening to your neighbors little brother do a cover emperors anthems to the welkin at dusk.

I personally think being a security guard that watches over some building at night is an excellent job. you are basically paid to read. the vast majority of great minds have in some form or another been autodidactic. seen from an intellectual perspective such a vocation is truly the freest i can think of!

Traveling

We will be meeting at a small town near Mt Rosa called “Zermantt” I have found that the cheapest way to reach Mt Rosa is by flying to Zurich (a flight from Berlin to Zurich costs 50 EUR) and then taking the train to Zermatt, which costs about 70EUR with the Swiss train service SBB. A normal train ticket is not that much more expensive though and environmentally friendlier. Ofcourse, it is up to you whether you want to travel over Thursday night or already leave for Zermatt on Wednesday. I personally sugget the latter. In case something happens. I am hoping for us to start the hike Thursday morning.


Hiking Route

We will meet in front of the Zermatt trainstation where the two roads “Bahnhofplatz” and “Getwingstrasse” intersect on Thursday morning (April 10th). Here is a google map page of the location: http://maps.google.de/maps?f=q&hl=de&geocode=&q=zermatt&sll=51.124213,10.546875&sspn=12.203179,29.882813&ie=UTF8&ll=46.023847,7.749063&spn=0.003293,0.007296&t=h&z=17  We could then visit a café or something for breakfast.  I will present to everyone the route I personally suggest we take to Mt Rosa. There are a number of possible trails to follow all of which leave from the town Zermatt. Which ever route we choose, it will take 2 or 3 days to hike into the mountains to reach Mt Rosa’s glacier where we will leave a tribute to Evola.


General Comments

I suggest looking up “Zermant” on google maps to get a sense of its location in relation to other major city centres.
If you have a cellphone and want to take it with (which might be a good idea; perhaps you will miss a train and don’t want to be left behind), check your provider to see what you need to do to have reception in Swizerland.


Equipment

According to wetter.de the current temperature in Zermatt ist -1*C. Although we will only be hiking in April, the Mt Rosa glacier does lie about 1000m above Zermatt, so a warm jacket as well as comfortable water resistent shoes are key. If it starts snowing you don’t want to get wet feet. I wont pretend that I have a lot of experience hiking in mountains. I don’t. I am also not taking any responsibility in case something goes wrong but the valleys near the mountains we will be walking through are relatively well populated. People hike these trails all the time. Otherwise you will need a sleeping bag and the general hiking outfit. There are huts on the trail which might be free (I am still looking into this) but we should have enough tents to accommodate everyone who attends. Either way, the Alps are amazing and this should be a great oppurtunity to get outside as well as meet some interesting people.


General Information

Good general info on Zermatt:
http://www.tripadvisor.com/Tourism-g188098-Zermatt_Valais_Swiss_Alps-Vacations.html

A list of hostels; “Hotel Bahnhof” looks like the most affordable and conveniently located near the train station.

I suggest you google map “Zermatt” to get a sense of where what is. It’s a really small town:

Destination: Mount Rosa in the heart of the Swiss Alps. More specifically, we will be hiking to a large glacier at its north western base where Julius Evola's ashes were scattered.

Duration: Thursday April 10th – Sunday April 13, 2008
More details to be posted this coming Monday.

I would appreciate it if people interested in this event contact me: [email protected]. Please note: this is not a mountaineering expedition but a beautiful hike:

You mean 'was'. Sepultura are rubbish now and have none of that spark left in them. Not least with their wannabe-rasta front man.



correct. was. alas, that is something we are all too familiar with.

i posted that nietzsche quote because it captures what i like about Sepultura... their music appears more meaningful, more lived, than most metal Ive come across, which is often about suffering that has probably never been lived. Furthermore, I feel that sepultura is closer to the traditional and therefore hessian [?] way of life than, again, most metal. They sing about tribes that actually still exist and dont just dream about "those times when i rode through the forest of old"

back to the topic: personally i am building a career in the environmental field. 'Am studying philosophy and environmental politics and am working my way up various environmental groups in my city.

I think the thing to do when one is still young, is have friends in as many circles as possible and see what kind of lives these people live, especially if they are older.
