Introspection.
Either you can do it, or you can't.
And if you can't, you don't even know what it is.

People often say it is impossible for anyone to be objective about themselves.
They can say this because nobody else exists for those people.
Such people see their own experience as the only experience possible. Their view as the only possible view.

When ego runs things, this is so. Ego is perfect. Or so it is convinced. There is nothing to adjust, or develop.
When ego does not run things, one watches one's ego, and rips into it, when it misbehaves.
So what is this 'one' watching one's ego?

If you have no soul, you do not know what soul is.
No words may describe it.
There is no way to know it without beng it.

The good news is that you may - at any moment - spontaneously birth your soul.
But to do so, you must have some interest in doing so.

Interzone / To Civilize or not to Civilize...

Is civilization a good thing?
Or is barbarism better?
If safety, stability and comfort are the goal, then civilization is the way to go.
Or is it?
If nature, vitality, and sudden extinction are the goal, barbarism is the way to go.
Or is it?

Barbarians need little looking-after, while civilized peoples do.
Barbarians periodically decimate each other, while civilized peoples produce ever more long-term examples of themselves.

Weeds are virtually indestructible, and actually perform an important function, outside of human preferences.
Whereas flowers and lawns are fragile things, requiring constant oversight.

Viruses are probably useless, as far as anyone knows.
Anything that exterminates its own support-system, and consequently itself, isn't much use.
Or is it?

So you're content with the way you are.
Are you perfect? The best you can be? Nothing questionable about yourself? No further you can go? Not one flaw you recognize? The apex of human development?
You've never been discontented with yourself? Ever? Faults and all?
Anyone who seeks to become better than they are, is sick?

Such a way of seeing oneself seems very, very unhealthy to me.
And goes a long way to illustrating why the Western world is in such a state of terminal decline.
This way of individuals seeing themselves is now the norm.
Everyone's a winner, just the way they are.
The only loser is society, itself.

There is no change.
Eloquence is an art that like any other, may be mastered.
It is the intention behind the eloquence, that can either create, or destroy.
The personality behind the avatar.

We have some new posters, here, encouraged by the weeding of the weeds, and the banishment of the avatars of those weeds. Yet weeds grow back. It is their nature.
These new posters are the cultivated wonders that the practised gardener welcomes.
They are the entire purpose of the garden.

Gardeners have a hard-on for weeds. They say:
"One year's seeds, makes seven year's weeds."
So they pay special attention to exorcizing those weeds before they can seed.
That done, the garden flourishes.

Thus in a forum, both the avatar and the personality behind it, if weeds, must go.
But nature, ever adaptable, may - over time - convert a weed to a glorious flower.
This forum aims for that.
There are few who realize it.

I have experience with just about everything.
Which is why so many people don't have any idea what I'm talking about, having so little, themselves.
What are you talking about, anyway?
Did you walk on a rusty nail, once, and so liked the feeling of it penetrating your foot that you want everyone else to experience it? That's deathmetal, to me. A symptom of an error.
On the other hand, errors are the very things that some require to show them how to avoid making them again.

As for wanking with the brain: it only goes to show how profoundly you misunderstand the worthwhile use of a brain. Brain give man ability to share experience with other man. Knucklehead not know this. Him think brain only good for insult others and blow stuff up.
Crow not know why knucklehead do this.
Crow not care to know, neither.

Crow-Magnon. That's it. With a dose of the Neolithic.
Both ahead of my time and born too late.
I wonder, sometimes, if the present is always the wrong place to be.
Or perhaps that very few humans actually inhabit the present.
Personally, I estimate that I inhabit a place one and a half seconds into the future.
Which actually is the present.
While everybody else seems to lag one and a half seconds into the past, while thinking only of some indeterminate future (and all the bad stuff that might lurk there).

Somebody stole my tribe, and I am pissed.

Do any of you actually feel any pride in being the same colour as that mass of people who are the same colour as you? I mean, knowing what most of them are like, and how they behave, do you feel any real kinship?
Perhaps in this age, White Nationalism is best kept as an inner conviction; an orientation, rather than a physically overt demonstration.
I raise this point, because although I definitely do prefer to be around people I have something in common with, I find, more and more, that I really don't have a lot in common with them.

For allegedly being deathmetal, the music wasn't half bad.
A bit pedestrian, perhaps, but not unpleasant.
I suppose I prefer subtlety to smashing the audience over their heads with a mace.
Then again, subtlety rarely works, with the concrete-headed masses.

Ah, the irony. The leftist descent into nightmare, inverted - as always - into utopia.
Imagine: fleeing from Somalia, to Sweden, then fleeing from Sweden, back to Somalia.
Hopefully, they will all do that, throughout the West, when they finally discover what a can of worms the West has become.
And perhaps - in a best-case scenario - take all the leftists with them.

People with metal legs, for instance, don't only interest themselves in metal legs.
Whereas they may frequent a forum for people with metal legs, some of them may also be interested in model aircraft, or raising chinchillas.
People talk about whatever interests them.
Life, for instance, interests me. So I talk about life.

On the other hand, Metal interests me only in that it is a symptom of something that causes an interest in Metal. The Metal, itself, drives me nuts, but the reasons for it existing at all, let alone being so important to those it is so important to, intrigues me.

Chasm is where you jump off into space and hope to discover the principles of flight before meeting up with the bottom. It is one aspect of Metal.

Leap boldly into the void.
You will not be harmed:
it has no bottom.

Some folks need to drink in order to paddle in life's absurdity.
Crows are absurdity. They see little point in drinking.

Crows don't do haikus. They run more to limericks...

There once was a crow with a bow,
if you didn't, before, now you know.
It would fly like an arrow, not at all like a sparrow,
and thereby did not shoot its toe.

My toy recurve bow is too light on draw weight to take advantage of anything over forty five yards.
The arc the arrow makes, becomes a ludicrous drop-off past that range.
There seems a direct correlation between draw weight and accurate range:
35lbs = 35 yards.
40lbs = 40 yards.
55lbs = 55 yards.

In the glory days of 1415 AD, most longbows were around 200lbs at full draw, and the skeletons of medieval archers show severe bone and joint deformation to prove it. Hence the massive range: 200 yards, or more.
Very few modern day archers have the musculature to pull such a bow, and it is now rare to see any longbow over 60lbs.

Muscle-rebuilding continues. Within reason.
