... bands like Averse Sefira and Demoncy, that while great in spirit, have some seriously loose ends in their composition.

Could you (or somebody) elaborate on these loose ends?  I was surprised to read that; I've gotten the impression that Averse Sefira is the last great Blackened Death Metal hope for many around here. 

Averse Sefira requires way to much focus and attention to actually get through listening to their entire albums.  Its too technical, it doesnt stay interesting, especially Tetragrammatical Astygmata...  They have their moments and thats about it. 

Uh, have you actually listened to Advent Parallax? Most of the riffs are actually quite simple in a memorable, black metal sort of way. Most of the technicality just comes from strange and dissonant chord shapes. The song structures are pretty easy to follow as well, and manage to be different and unpredictable without being needlessly complex or difficult to keep up with. Great album.

The planet's ecosystems are being destroyed by the Western way of lifestyle, which third world countries imitate. If anything will save the planet's ecosystems, it is the crash of industrialized civilization.
One of the unstated conditions of the utopic fantasy I described is technology will magically restore us to equilibrium with the environment. Just like with raising the average IQ level, it's unlikely and shouldn't be anticipated, but not impossible.

I don't think I'm willing to hedge my bets on technology giving humans a habitable biosphere.

Of course, the West won't be able to raise the standards of living in third world nations if it fucking collapses first... and the rape of the planet's ecosystem.

global standards of living can be raised through the technological evolution capitalism propels so that in the future even those who have less money (the poor) compared to those who have more money (the rich) will be able to lead a decent life and, their immediate needs being met, will be able to look to higher and more communally and philosophically important things.

How's the kool-aid taste?

In other words, humans want to fail.

This is kind of an ambiguous and meaningless statement, but there is truth in it. The truth in it is that almost the humans of our culture want this civilization to come crashing down, even if they don't consciously realize it. They are obsessed with their own self destruction. This is a healthy reaction to what we know intuitively is a poisonous culture. However, it's only a very small percentage of us that realize that what we really want is a spiritual/cultural death. We're a lot like young adults who feel like they genuinely want to die, but what they really want is to let the child die, so that the adult can live.

We find ourselves in a situation that requires a shift in heart and mind, but as Joseph Campbell noted, there will always be those who will prevent changes in society, because they are very comfortable and benefited by the very society that is so damaging to even themselves. They will (and have been extremely successful at) convince people, whose minds they literally control through media, that this civilization is the best way to live, is heading to a great future, is without limits and not subject to natural laws, has a right to destroy the life systems on earth, and, most importantly, is something that we could not live without. The power structure works in a way similar to an abusive relationship, actually.

As far as goals go, the only thing I will ever be able to do in this society without lying to myself and being miserable is to do everything I can to bring about a paradigm shift back to a healthy, sane, human lifestyle while doing everything I can to prevent this dying culture from it's final attempts to destroy everything that is not itself. Currently I teach primitive skills, naturalist knowledge, and wilderness awareness at a nature school for children and adults. These things are very important to heal the members of a terribly wounded human culture by reconnecting them to the community of life on Earth, and giving them the capability to grow out of the infantile and domesticated civilized herd into responsible and healthy human communities. It is the most fulfilling thing I have done with my life thus far (21 years in!). I'm not sure if it's enough, but I know that it is important to plant the seeds any way we can.

I just grabbed this album, wanted to see if it was any good. Wasn't really expecting much.

Pleased to say it exceeded my expectations. B+ material definitely. Thanks for the rec.

Be sure to check out the Firmament demo/album.

We were once listening to Autechre on Itunes and the album ended. Then Mental Funeral started. Dead is probably the greatest mood ruining song ever, but we were too busy to notice.

I would advice against sitting still in a forest for an hour, that sounds boring as fuck.

And this is part of why our culture will never be able to stop itself from committing ecocide without a radical change in mindset. If you can't create an awareness and come into a relationship with the community of life, then you will never be able to truly respect it. You can't come into a relationship with the biosphere by merely studying it scientifically; like a person you can only truly know it through interaction and direct experience.

I see what you're saying. I would submit, however, that on the left-hand path discipline doesn't have to entail suffering. It need only entail intellectual challenge, which can be quite fun, and which involves suffering only insofar as one fails to realize the right answer.

Let me put it this way then: Sitting in the forest for an hour and not moving is not boring, and it is definitely not suffering. If someone thinks it would be "boring as fuck" they have probably never done it and have no idea what a forest is actually like. If you think it is suffering then I don't know what to tell you. Trees and animals and insects and water and fungi and decomposers don't recognize the left or right hand path. They were the teachers of humanity long before Yahweh and his most loyal angel, and they are outside their dichotomies.
