Interzone / Modernity is not universally sustainable
« on: February 22, 2010, 07:29:50 PM »
I believe some major shared concerns in our time can be resolved through parallelism, or allowing independent development to take place around the world. Apply a non-interference pact similar to the Prime Directive from Star Trek fiction.

Problems
* overpopulation
* urban sprawl
* overcommercialization
* extreme income disparity
* loss of languages and cultures
* habitat loss
* resource depletion
* ecocide
* pollution

What we have instead is the reverse: we insist, as a universal moral imperitive, that everyone, everywhere, has to be brought into an affluent North American lifestyle. The past after all, as the implied narrative informs us, was composed of 100% Pure Horror, Ignorance, and Inhumanity.

If the United States alone uses the majority of the planet's resources, but has only 6% of the world's population, our moral imperitive to upgrade 5 billion lifestyles, barring significant required technological advancements, is mathematically impossible and will remain so for the foreseeable future.

Not every group is ready to responsibly, consistently maintain and advance a modern state of living. For some, their best fit for the long-term yet is hunter-gather, for others, perhaps something resembling Late Antiquity or the Middle Ages. Yet, this is unequal, and in some ways inhumane, but it is the only realistic resolution available within our finite space.

That's a giant star going supernova:
1 pops out a neutron star "bullet" big as a modern city; the densest type of object known aside from a black hole singularity
2 blows off a superheated shell of gas; the misleadingly named planetary nebula due to its sheer scale over time
3 stray gamma ray bursts that would probably flash fry Earth into an ash cinder in moments

1 and 3 are continual variables out there that could end our drama for us without warning

Our place in the cosmos is far less significant than our humanzee pop culture, modern religion, and liberal politics would have us believe. This collective fantasy ego drama robs our present and future of greater possibilities.

Thus to identify Jesus' love for John in a special way might indicate a sexual relationship. The disciple was "the" beloved. He was in a class by himself. 

During the Last Supper before Jesus' execution, the author(s) of the Gospel of John describes how the "beloved" disciple laid himself on Jesus' inner tunic -- his undergarment. See John 13:25 and 21:20. Robert Goss, assistant professor of comparative religion at Webster University in St. Louis, LA, noted that Jesus and the beloved disciple: "... eat together, side by side. What's being portrayed here is a pederastic relationship between an older man and a younger man. A Greek reader would understand."

Metal / Re: Death/black metal on mainstream radio
« on: February 21, 2010, 06:10:22 AM »
Furthermore, I believe that quality Metal should stay underground, as it needs to maintain its occult roots.

Maybe it is the occult or perhaps non-modernist that needs mainstreamed. Metal and other phenomenon might then follow suit.

Like "Proletcult" in Orwell's 1984 - give the masses manufactured garbage as you exploit them for your own ends... or send them to their ends.

Let's assume the Great Pyramids are a persistent testimony to the sort of greatness or purpose that having a civilization in the first place can produce. We have learned that it was not forced enslavement, but instead a willing people inspired by and in awe of their god-kings who willingly worked themselves so hard to bring evidence of their lasting greatness into the world.

I think Jesus was a compassionate, super-intelligent gay man who understood human problems. On the cross, he forgave the people who crucified him. Jesus wanted us to be loving and forgiving. I don’t know what makes people so cruel. Try being a gay woman in the Middle East — you’re as good as dead.”

The Muslims may eventually acquire France and Britain.

Why all the hysteria in the West about Iraq, Iran, and Pakistan having nuclear armament if the people and ideologies from these countries are welcomed to control them officially in Europe? This hemisphere is mentally ill.

Side effect redundancies or interrelations:

* Increasingly rootless population
* Victimology and panderers
* Centralized control
* Import trade dependency
* Foreign loyalties
* Overemphasized commercialization
* Inadequate infrastructure
* Weak conservation

If i want to see what a third world country looks like all I have to do is take the train through Baltimore, what a fucking shit hole!

There are pockets of abandoned rotteness all over the country now, including rural, suburban, and urban areas.

The alphas lead the tribal pack, while the betas follow in their own pecking order. This is all basic sociobiology which remains in effect right now.

Human nature is elastic, not concrete. You can tug, push and pull at great expense of time and energy, not to mention revolts and repressions to boot, but we'll snap right back into place - where we were 10000 years ago. The only profound modification since speciation resulted from settlement due to our adopting agriculture. The best solution is to allow compatible kinds to group themselves and let the emerging competition sort the successful from those bound for extinction. Unlike the social engineering fantasy ideologies of past and present, this is how things actually work.

The medieval conflicts between various kings and the distant Pope fits in here somewhere. So does this:

Almost no one seems prepared to discuss the obvious danger: that if politics becomes a replacement for religion by taking upon itself the responsibility for transfiguring human nature then politicians, of all people, become the prophets and the priests. Just at the moment, I can't think of a more absurd idea.

http://www.telegraph.co.uk/comment/columnists/janetdaley/7231568/Immigration-a-plan-to-alter-the-nations-soul.html

But, transfiguring human nature, not which human takes on such a task, is, judging by the results all around today, the actual absurd idea.

extremism, extremist: e.g., "For the past thirteen years I have been preaching The Vision of, 50,000 Righteous Men Living for the Lord in the community formerly called Harlem.  Essentially the answer to the problems of this Ghetto can be solved by the men becoming Righteous Men, but more importantly Almighty God will get the glory when He raises up a people who are now not a people; and the world will have to acknowledge it was the Living God who raised up this community."
