Doth anyone have knowledge of where to obtain this book? So far, I've found only a couple copies floating around the internet, pushing $200 each.

I would like to scan it and upload as a pdf.

Has anyone done this?

In the other direction I experimented in,  I do have a song at hand, I just have to get the gear up and running and I'll post it on YouTube. This does neither reflect an aspect of norwegian nature, and therefore neither under the NiDHOGG name. Trying to describe it, I figure Psychedelic Necro Ompa would suffice, to give an idea of the sound. Labeling/not labeling, I don't care. There is energy to it like me and iLDjARN's metal stuff and some trippy shit going on. The picture I attached also should give you an idea of the sound, I think  ;) I had two songs ready for a limited 7", but one day I lost the A-side down the "equipment failure-drain", so to speak. The intended B-side I have, tough.

And here it is: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=liHRNYeCFLc

Turn up your volume before listening.

It's possible to think otherwise?

Hello fellow Hessians, I composed two death metal ish songs recently and I would appreciate your feedback and criticism regarding them. I am not currently able to record music, so the best that I can offer is rendered MIDI files. Better than nothing, I guess. They are mp3 files, so you should be able to listen to them. Link.

I still say Flowering corpses is good. I'd like to hear it recorded.

The second one doesn't have the same level of inter-connectedness as the first. There doesn't seem to be a central motif to the track, which ends up being a collection of riffs. It's decent, still.

It's a great way to relax while also allowing creativity to flow!

Or is that sex?

I dunno.

Here's the link to my youtube propaganda page. Going to use it to upload good music and cause problems: https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCmMyf4BBMEbeK3SwvLyKZiQ

Additionally, I've uploaded two new compositions. Listen if you want to:

Synth: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0ISI0_SsJ_o
Metal: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=wrJBKFSfWZE

If you think it's good, good. If you think it's terrible, please post incoherent profanity-laced ranting.

I enjoy that.

How do you know that a guidebook is a good one and not one writen by an ignorant?

Well, know he knows it was correct about that road.

The largest stumbling block for moderns is probably point 2:

But if there's social standards, that means I can't get wasted and run through the street naked. That's not variety!

No graffiti? But that's my artistic expression man! Don't you like diversity?

You're against democracy? Then how will I vote for a transgendered-homosexual-feminist-walrus? Don't you be restrictive!

What we gain by losing all that garbage:

1. A more aesthetically pleasing civilization

2. Individuality is strengthened by allowing each to reach their heights of glory within a civilized structure. I'm sure drug slum individuals are very "unique"; but if you pack 1,000 unique characters into a city and let them run wild, you don't output a very attractive civilization. And all end up looking the same.

My questions for the deep ecologists here:
- As long as civilization prevails, why should we give a damn about the continuation of any plant or animal species?
- To those who point to the beauty of nature in its defense, what does it really have to offer that Virtual Reality won't eventually be able to match or surpass?

To the first; your question assumes from the start that you care about preserving a specific animal species (homo sapiens). To do this, you will need some number of plant and animal species around - for consumption and to offset carbon/etc. But, this only takes us to the point that exists more or less now: factory farming and a few trees here and there, as long as they don't interfere with someone's view.

Why should one care about nature more than civilization?

I am inclined to say that if one doesn't, one doesn't, and that's it...but: it would be a distinct tragedy for all life to be reduced to a profit/loss great Coca-Cola Culture arrangement. It uplifts the...(I am trying to avoid using the word "soul" here) mind/body relationship to consider oneself as a part within nature rather than an external parasite imposed upon it. If we would realize this, we could preserve nature and a quality civilization, simultaneously.

crow answered the second part well.

And the OP didn't even mention Kaczynski's main point, which was that the modern technological state is so inherently destructive and unstable that as soon as it starts falling apart, the whole global system would follow; because it relies on an international factory creation of items that cannot be replicated on a local level.

In a post on his youtube page, he wrote that he made both of them (svart dag and eksistenses jeger).

Thank you for responding, NiDHOGG. Both you and Ildjarn are held in high regard around here.

It seemed likely that when recordings re-surface after 20 years, it's difficult to retain information about them. Perhaps Ildjarn didn't realize who had conceived the work or there was a a problem with Osmose's understanding of the situation.

Either way, it's good to hear that work and the demos you posted on youtube. It is appreciated by this community.

There is a difference between physical experience and intellectual information, but is it as strong as has been suggested?

All perception is a gamble in a way; our experience of reality is filtered by the sensations screened by our nervous system and organized in our brain. It may be that there is always a gap between "that which is" and "that which can perceive it". Humans are notorious for creating errors in any number of ways in this process. Having an "experience of something" does not mean that "something' actually exists, but there is extreme difficulty in convincing some people of that.

In regards to words conveying knowledge: it may be that they can't provide the experience, but they can enable one to have it: if i have no idea how to fix my snowblower and I look online at guides which explain how to do it, and then I do it, I am putting into practice something which works and did not originate with myself.

Yes, it amazes me too, that you can be so - whatever it is - so seamlessly.
Understand this:
03-04 is the star of the show. Bar none. He is the reason this forum exists. He knows more than all of us put together. Take my word for it, since you seem unable to recognize it.
So when he does a fly-by and drops a few gems, the last thing I am going to allow is anybody - anybody - to take cheap shots at him.

Since I'm evidently teetering to the edge of being added to the pile, I'll ask you your question:

What is it that you think I add to the forum? Earlier this month, you were praising me and now you say I don't know jack shit about anything. Which one is it?

In regards to 03-04, fine. If the admins wish that to be the policy, I will follow it out of respect for them.
