Believing x is true simply because it cannot be shown to be false is a terrible way of thinking and nobody should do it - if they want to be intellectually serious. I assume everybody here desires to be serious. If they don't, then obviously the statement does not apply to them.

If somebody has a reason to believe that x is true due to reasons independent of inserting the belief in a space provided by a lack of knowledge, then that should be shared if the person desires to convince other people.

Asking me to discover on my own the truth of something that I don't believe in to begin with is silly.

"You can't prove God doesn't exist, therefore you believe on faith he doesn't!"

Replace "God" with "non-material" and it's the same quality argument. Until someone can provide evidence that the "non-material" exists, it shouldn't be taken seriously.

"The poor" is a fiction created by Crowdists who believe having a "free" education, "free" housing, and "free" food is an innate HUMAN RIGHT.

Who provides all these "free" adventures is something they don't like to discuss.

Recognizing that science is, at present, unable to fully explain all natural processes in the brain does absolutely nothing to lead to the notion that there is any "non-material" process which conveniently [and unexplainably] interacts with the "material".

This is the "God of the gaps" method of thought in action.

The most ugly philosophy is that which is secretly religious.

You really think there was nothing at all original in the metal tracks that could be pursued? There was a conscious attempt at culmination/achievement of an 'end point', despite the 'punkiness' of the individual riffs (short, repetitive) within each song.

It seemed like a result of someone who aesthetically and intellectually understands black metal, but isn't able to convey the full "spirit" of what is trying to be expressed. There wasn't anything within it to differentiate itself [when compared to the relevant black metal bands, if compared to contemporary bands it'd be far more favorable] except perhaps the solos, which did fit within the song far better than most bands do; however I'm in the camp that "acrobatic" solos have no place being anywhere near black metal.

My personal taste would be to delete the solos, get a guitar tone that doesn't sound like midi, and improve the vocals [more like Demoncy, less like Marduk].

I'd be interested in hearing the project move away from metal towards ambient. The last track is intriguing.

Thanks for listening. Do you mean 'noumenon'? Or the last proper track (which itself has more keyboards/ambiance than the other 3)?

Noumenon. The metal tracks were fine, but nothing that hasn't been done before. I found myself looking forward to the synth elements within them more than the riffs. Noumenon is interesting in that it retains metal instrumentation but the production is so distant that the structure of the song is nearly destroyed. If that was complimented with synth/noise, but extended to a more narrative form, it'd be intriguing. (I'm thinking of something like Burzum's Decrepitude tracks or Beherit's ritualistic tracks for reference)

I'm always suspicious when being told what to be grateful for - and it wasn't the colony I was ungrateful towards.

In my view, deconstruction is a value judgment on the value-less observation of destruction. I label the aluminum adventure as deconstruction because it reduced an organic construction to an ugly exhibit of human megalomania.

Uploading recent releases could get the forum in trouble.

Art elevates, it does not deconstruct.

What type of person looks at an anthill and thinks: This needs aluminum! ?

We pass under surveillance cameras every day, appearing on perhaps hundreds of minutes of film. We rarely notice them. London-based artist James Bridle would like to remind us.

Bridle has created a wearable device he calls the “surveillance spaulder.” Inspired by the original spaulder—a piece of medieval plate armor that protected “the wearer from unexpected and unseen blows from above”—the surveillance spaulder alerts the wearer to similarly unseen, if electronic, attacks. Whenever its sensor detects the the type of infrared lighting commonly used with surveillance cameras, it sends an electric signal to two “transcutaneous electrical nerve stimulation” pads, which causes the wearer to twitch.
