There once was a deathmetal forum,
a place somewhat lacking decorum.
With commenters few, just the same shifty crew,
any others unwilling to bore 'em.

Potential new members, take note:
Your comments aren't down to a vote.
You may say what you mean, even if you're a teen,
Settle in and please take off your coat.

Reincarnation then? Quite a popular belief, so I hear.
You might imagine someone like me would be very interested in such things, but strangely it holds no interest at all.
I often wonder about that lack of interest. Very odd.

Good stuff, that. I swear by it.
My woods are currently full of magic mushrooms, and I haven't eaten a single one.
I fear there is something terribly wrong with me.

You don't imagine, then, that when your body is gone, some essence of you will live on?

Does an appreciation for metal follow as a direct consequence of drug usage?
Do all, or most, metal aficionados use drugs?

Well. That's a fine distinction, and an interesting point.
I feel it is rather difficult for anyone to 'remember' something that was never part of their experience.
In this case, not being alive, when the remembrance-worthy-event took place.
Perhaps 'appreciation' would better describe the celebrating of such events.

Appreciation Day. For those who gave their lives (for the civilization we have so gratefully flushed down the toilet).
I, for one, rarely fail to appreciate those who did so, without having to be reminded to.
While at the same time, being disgusted by the callousness of those who have been entrusted with what the remembered ones died for.

Interzone / Re: Western messiah complex
« on: November 11, 2013, 06:02:53 PM »
The complex involves seeing oneself as being seen, by others, to be a messiah.
This is why it is a complex.
If there is such a thing as an actual messiah, minus the complex, he would probably be driven to share what he actually knew, in the certain knowledge that what he knew was vital, as opposed to merely being seen to be 'a messiah'.

Interzone / Seasoning.

Some of you already know the blandness of a life that is too safe.
Maybe some of you also dread the uselessness of a death-by-stupidity.
How many of you have walked the razor's edge of the in-between?

I've often lived on the edges of life, balanced, precariously between the living and the dead.

Life has the potential to be - in itself - spectacularly worth living. So why is it mostly a dull and crushingly boring drudge?
Seasoning is the key. Danger the spice. But not stupid danger, as in that laughably misused slogan "No Fear!"

A risky life is a life lived to the full. Risk as an everyday factor. Lived in places and in ways where risk can not be avoided. Because what humans do best is problem-solve. This rising-above-adversity is the seasoning that brings out the subtle taste of paradise, that separates the living from the dead.

If you're gonna live, then do it while you're young. Your later years, if you are lucky enough, or adaptable enough, to have any, will then take their rightful place as a time to reflect over those glorious days of young-and-strong, and wisdom will be yours, before your time is up.

You'll need wisdom, at some point.

You know, many of you fellas are too young to have even experienced civilization, other than in the form of its final dissolution. Soon enough there will be nobody left who has ever experienced it at all.
Maybe that's not such a bad thing.
A man's time can get very sidetracked by trying to apply the brakes to save it.

As opposed to being consentually drowned?
That's an interesting concept.

That's easily arranged. Move to the middle east, convert to islam, then change your mind.

That's not civilization. It is what remains of our civilization.

Interzone / Remembrance.
« on: November 11, 2013, 02:51:52 PM »
I've long found it odd, that people need to be reminded to remember.
Even more odd, that remembering can become a group-thing.
If you can't remember to remember, then nothing is going to help you do it.
Because if you need to be reminded to remember to remember, then you didn't really remember at all.

Christians go to church, once a week, if they remember to go. If they remember to go, then they get to remember Jesus. It seems odd that religious people should need to remember to be religious. Maybe that's what's wrong with Christians.

I don't need to be reminded of much. That is one benefit of awareness. One is the totality of one's experience, minute by minute. I do, however, have difficulty, sometimes, remembering what day it is. In the real world, I guess it doesn't really matter.

Join nearly everybody else :)
If it was easy, everybody would be doing it.
But if, and when, you succeed, you'll laugh yourself silly with the realization of how absurdly easy it actually was.
