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.

I laugh hysterically, sometimes. I just can't stop.
I entered a cafe, some years ago, in the gulf islands, where I live, and asked the waitress if she had any cake.
"We have some space cake", she said.
I looked at her, wondering what space cake was. Maybe the kind of cake astronauts take into space with them. Dehydrated, perhaps, or in a tube. Maybe it had those tiny coloured candy bits all over it...
"What's a space cake?"
She looked at me, wondering what I was.
"It's got spaces in it", she said.
I started to giggle a bit. I tried to imagine a cake with spaces in it. What? Like a swiss cheese?
No matter how hard I tried, I was unable to picture it. I had to try some, if only to find out.
"I'll have a slice of that, then, and some coffee, please".
She waddled off, while I amused myself with imagining what it might turn out to be.
She returned with an extraordinarily ordinary-looking slice of cake. No coloured bits. No holes.
I took a bite.
Then the laughing started, in earnest.
She seemed quite upset as I shook and guffawed, almost falling off my chair.
I tried to explain it to her, but was laughing too much to do so.

She was from Newfoundland, it turned out.
Her accent had sounded like she was saying 'space cake', when in fact, she had been saying:
Spice cake.

History shows again and again how nature points up the folly of men. Godzilla!

And one of the the greatest follies is that men perceive all their follies can be corrected with more of them. SUCCESS! DUNNOT GIB UP! TONY ROBBINS SAVIOUR SOUL

"The rediscovery of man's place" is how we might phrase the question today.

In the old days, there was no such question, as Crow has alluded to on another thread. They simply lived.

Because the will of the universe is unchanging, man's presumptions of progress blind him to the fact that nothing has changed, nor will ever change according to the parameters he's put up.

^This relates to what Sr. Aquiles is saying about curiosity. Since we've developed parameters for everything, that has become what is meaningful- whatever falls underneath the purview of these parameters. Curiosity is actually eternal, for it comes from something that is 'curiously' unchanging, the Rule of Life. Only modern man can admit curiosity is or can be extinguished.

Sr.Aquiles, you have managed to distill some of the magic of life into words. Bravo!

There is wisdom in a smile.  Although, only a fool can really laugh. I am a fool. I laugh at everything, even when i do not laugh.

You describe me very well here.

I often have hysterical bouts of laughter about things that no one else finds particularly funny. I will laugh uncontrollably for five minutes or so (not like a psychopath, don't get the wrong idea), and usually some quality of my laughter makes everyone else laugh too. My laughter spreads like wildfire. I have found that this is a good quality of mine.

Though I do wonder, am I strange for laughing so much, or are they strange for not seeing the humor?

The mascot of this thread ought to be the fool from King Lear, I think...I always felt a strong affinity for his character.

Our ancestors were curious creatures. They lived in what our society now condemns to oblivion: reality itself.

It is entirely possible, and reasonable, to do this, if one has no awareness of what reality is.
How such a thing can be is difficult to imagine, if one recognizes reality.
But what if one doesn't?
Is there a means by which it can be made visible to those unable to see it?

Having goals is different from living according to a nebulous telos you are to fulfill. By positing this telos before you have started to *live* you are already fighting a losing game. Merely by living according to the rule of life, you have fulfilled everything that needs to be fulfilled.

The point is not to conquer life, but mould yourself to the rule of the world- nay, the universe. In doing so, you have already conquered the most dangerous of all foes.

The primordial telos of man is to become one with reality.
