Fair enough.  Maybe this is a good opportunity to talk about how the inverted cross is the Cross of St. Peter, pentagrams were widely used as symbols for Health by pre-20th century Christians, and the Nazi swastika is not "the wrong way round".

dishonorable tactics hardly guarantee victory.  you don't have to throw out honor in order to win.  practicing one's martial art will you make you a better fighter than the willingness to kick someone in the balls

Screw honor.  Win above all costs.  Honor is a fool's way of putting sportsmanship into the act of survival.

Let's assume you and your opponent were engaged in hand to hand combat, no weapons.  Would you kick him in the balls?  If so, you're a bitch



Depends.  Are we sparring, or fighting over the last bottle of water in the wasteland?

Neither, you knucklehead - let's go with the median between those two scenarios

"honor" ... There is a place for it, to be sure.

That's all that I wanted.  If you've read The End of History and the Last Man, you'll realize that THYMOS/HONOR/DISHONOR is always an aspect fueling wars, peoples and history.  We would do well to learn about honor.  Even you guys have a *sense* of honor, you both just admitted it.  So enough of this "screw honor" BS.  I obviously get your point, but if we're talking about a Hessian Martial Art and what we would be teaching, I would teach:  We wage war FOR victory, WITH honor.

Interzone / Definition of DECADENCE
« on: May 11, 2010, 03:40:14 PM »
This word seems to be a tough one to define sometimes.  How do you ladies and gentlemen define it?  With Nietzsche in mind, the broadest way I can define "decadence" is:  life, itslef, has become a burden and a problem.

I guess Matt Stone and Trey Parker were right, God doesn't exist.  oh well, time to kill myself!

Give me an honest answer as to what differentiates pixie dust (or lunar beams and invisible tarantulas) from God.

Pixie dust hasn't been the cultural norm for understanding the Universe, neither invisible tarantulas. Why? Because they don't have the same purpose and function. God has an unique function which is not the same of a flying spaghetti monster or whatever reductio ad absurdum specification you will.

What is this difference exactly?

God has a social functionality that a magical ninja chicken-hippopotamus doesn't. At a functional level, God is the sublimation of ethos and the teleological crystallization of individual and communal destiny... I'd like examples of pixie dust doing that. Of course, God can derive in bad results, as every high concept does (heroism, love... black metal).

Now, the metaphysical level is even better. As Schuon said: "The Absolute is not the Absolute inasmuch as it contains aspects, but inasmuch as It transcends them." Does pixie dust serve as concept to contain that which is beyond the multiplicity? Does pixie dust seeks to solve the duality between subject and object?
Pixie dust could do all of those things if it was the cultural norm (who knows, maybe in some cultures a pixie dust like concept has the same transcendental qualities that God does in Western cultures). Pixie dust could have "the sublimation of ethos and the teleological crysallisation of individual and communal destiny", could "serve as a concept to contain that which is beyond multiplicity" and "solve the duality between subject and object". Hell, invisible tarantulas could be the ones spreading the invisible pixie dust, in conjunction with the invisible goatlord who fires lunar beams from his giant horns. This transcendental, invisible goat of course, is an essence of a further supertranscendental pattern in the transcendental plane, the mighty five eyed snake Colololuu, who in turn is controlled by an infinite regression of supersuper....transcendental patterns/beings/entities. How is this ridiculous account of metaphysics any less likely than God doing everything you said?

Do you write for South Park?

Metal / Re: Literary influences on metal
« on: January 11, 2010, 01:49:34 PM »
...all of them being very appealing to teenagers.

are you trying to say something?  please articulate it.



or you're gonna smack me? :))

.. as metal music's largest audience is made of teenagers and young people also it seams the literary influences on metal follows this "rule".


Romantic literature's largest audience is teenagers and young people?  that's quite the claim!
