LONELINESS IS A CENTRIFUGE: art, genius, is the puncturing of immanence(s), that's why inspiration sometimes phases into bacchanal, the madness of an Outside: capitalism arrests the Dionysian instinct with the infantilizing vortex of pop culture, nerd culture is dysgenic, cinema is the depiction of /deliberate/ time: films are the elision of boredom, emptiness, but the womb of genius is vacuum, stimulation is de-individuating because only solitude can be the rehearsal for death, our 20s are now a kind of post-adolescence: social media prefigures the cybernetic emancipation of the cogito, bodies colonized by the virtual so that we might know the frictionless gliding of selves, Instagram thirst as Cybele worship, brains kidnap souls from the Ungrund to feed their hunger for stimulation, the tragedy being no soul pre-exists its "kidnapping" (instantiation): souls do not move bodies, they are the movement /of/ bodies: being does not depend on enunciation, enunciation depends on being: Descartes didn't really break with the Scholastics, he just displaces Aquinas' coincidence of esse and percipi (reserved for God) onto the cogito: "I" does not predate the mouth that speaks "I". The theist says "thou", the metaphysician says "I": Descartes says neither, he reverses the ontological priority of essence over existence by making the "I" the /performative identification of itself/, that is, dependent on time to arrive to itself /as that which is perpetually arriving/: the living thing calls "I" like a heartbeat, only so long as it can: Parmenides and Shestov: the power of thought to command (utter) itself into being degenerates into its slavery to the a priori logicity of its own saying: the bindu depends on the negative space of its inscription to be itself: thought is what /posits its own positing/: its technological mastery of the world is a standard of mastery immanent /exclusively to itself/: Western metaphysics of presence is directly responsible for this need to reconcile God's infinitude as noun with his "verbal" becoming in time: modernity is accomplished when thought's reflection in the mirror of its own activity becomes transcedentally recognizable to itself as itself, when thought maps itself on its own (apperceptive) stanchion: that is to say, the Idea of something just is its coherence through time: Forms are the children of memory. Human ideation is non-being: universals are only a problem for temporality. Plato could say I don't need time to know red, and he'd be right, but I do need time to know redness qua redness: for the non-temporal "consciousness", there are no judgments, no heuristic algorithms, and so there is no likeness or difference: The identity of objects through time is artificial, /nominal/, epiphenomenal to (the empty form of) becoming, and so an ontological fiction: one that completes itself with my death - but death is the restoration of innocence: dust sings when nothing ticks, not even your heart.

>>131 Based opinion.
>>580 Descartes is a fag who contributed to the ultimate materialistic degeneracy era. Hume as well. He broke away from Aquinas the moment he talked about the mechanismo. This ultimately led to the humanistic narcissism that characterised the enlightenment era, which obviously, ended up being the last piece of the puzzle for the judeans, but I digress. Point is philosophia, is worth only in its purest form, just as the platonics conceived it. The only holistic philosophy is the sophia perennis.
>>680 Wdym? Materialism from mind body dualism or another of his ideas?

>>648 I need to read more to make any meaningful comment on this. But thank you for your meaningful answer anon.
>>577 Atleast in Hindu women I find it to be true, that they install the culture and politics in boys and even girls. The male name is inherited, but the women guides other values.
>>649 My stance is that we never will spread our ideas to the masses. The vast majority of people are too far sunk into Sklavenmoral and modernism ever to be able to appreciate ideas like martial spirit, the value of lineage, civilizational ethos, etc. (Perhaps it has always been this way. The masses never ruled society; even "democracy" was for élites and this is a good thing.) For example, "equality" under the law (e.g. between the sexes) is a cardinal value held by the vast majority of urban Indians, yet it's a distinctly western Enlightenment-era ideal that has only existed for a brief blip in human history. There is no ancient, traditional, or virtuous society in existence that has practiced the equality of the sexes, yet to go against that would be anathema to almost any modern Indian. What is the solution then, if convincing the masses will not work? We just need to convince a large enough group of élites of our values, and rule India forcibly from top-down similar to China. Still a difficult or borderline impossible task, but much less so than convincing the masses.
>>641 I know roughly how you feel. Academia is in it's death throes right now, even in the last few years I felt a sizeable shift and my enthusiasm drained with it. It's now full of busywork. the thing I thought was sacred has become like any other workplace, full of people who don't put any love into what they do and don't view as something seperate from the day to day. They drag their unoriginal and mundane ideas into the field and you have to work with them. The people who write articles for the sake of plumping up their CV, those who teach for the summers off, those who raise their hand to derail discussion, those who show up without having done any of the readings. Indian students have also gotten worse. While they're still nice, there is always this sort of snobbery that's depressing to interact with. Idk how many of them I've seen eat beef here. Not sure how things are where you are at, but a summer in India would be nice. You can live well enough on 1 or 2k a month, see places no tourists go to see, get a nice beachside hut in Karnataka or Gujarat and just chill. SEA is also nice and cheap with beautiful temples and hot weather. >>647 I think some massive change is necessary. That's why I always respect Communists, proper ones anyway - they always saw the need for a revolution and a radical departure from the way things were done to a state which they thought things should be done. Compare that to this society o gradual changes and you can understand the appeal. >>646 I'm not sure the usefulness of caste anymore. I think the benefits in modern society are too few and the detriments too numerous. The main issue isn't caste, its communalism and special interest group accumulation. >>648 I'm skeptical of simple test oriented applications. For some companies it might work but I think performing a function at a company is too varied a task for it's complexity to be captured in one format. CV's and recommendations are still super useful. Canadian companies have started rolling out personality tests here, giving me visions of big brother. >>652 That's why I don't believe in politics. Society should also be in the hands of the few. The masses have never changed since the dawn of time. Read the romans and you realize how little has changed in over 2000 years of recorded history. That is why Fascism is so interesting - it was a mass movement that was openly elitist. If anything of the sort were to happen in India it should be along the lines of the iron Guard in Romania. Same with the Roman form of government - an elected Republic that openly supported dictatorship when it was necessitated.

i don't know if i should be thankful for this ability but its really hard for people to convince me i entered this blackpill hellhole right from its start with eggman and even fell down the rabbit hole but it brought absolutely 0 changes in my behavior of walking life i have browsed almost every degenerate site, imageboard, forums or anything similar for many years yet people can't tell and nor did these things ever affect me i have personally seen many of my acquaintances who literally fell to the bottom of these shitholes in just 6-7 months and now have based their entire personality around these lifestyles claiming to be blackpilled but i couldn't even find my types in there i was lonely and i still am, most probably will remain for the entirety of my life

>>230 The classical man’s worst fear was inglorious death; the modern man’s worst fear is just death.
Set not thy heart on any good or gain, Life means but pleasure, or it means but pain; When Time lets slip a little perfect hour, O take it--for it will not come again. Each day a leaf falls withered from the tree Whose leaves make up the life of thee and me, The leaves are counted and the last is there-- Ready to fall before thy destiny.

/sa/ starter kit version 1 तिरस्कृत 09/30/2022 (Fri) 18:40:13 ID:43d763 No. 597 [Reply]
So guys, I've made the first version of the /sahitya/ starter kit. The aim of it is to guide the newbies towards the choice of literature we deem important. Books of almost every era is chosen, in a way that they become a good introduction not only to their authors but also to the movements/eras that the authors hail from. (Note that I could've chosen the OG 2 epics, but I didn't as they would've been hard for a newbie. Though I've put Rashmirathi instead of Mahabharata) Any and every feedback is welcome wrt the books chosen, layout, font, etc.

>>615 Honestly I don't think there is a chart that encompasses Indian literature, and I don't think there is a single person alive who can claim to be an authority. There are so many languages in India, and literature is infamously difficult to translate.
>>615 Theyre meh. Couldve been better imho. Also request to jannies to pin this thread
>>619 no not right now, we will make a separate sticky thread and close the replies on that one so that only mod can post the messages we need to keep the sticky clean atleast
>>618 exactly, literature from the whole peninsula is extremely hard to capture and the chart kinda corner outs our lungi bros even the hinduism chart is kinda retarded
>>615 Naipaul is pretty good. But a very meh chart.

Gandhi as an author तिरस्कृत 10/02/2022 (Sun) 12:45:11 ID:c59eea No. 637 [Reply]
Those who've actually read Gandhi (instead of taking out-of-context excerpts and larping), what insights have you got? I'm not saying he was a pure-and-perfect guy, sure he has got some major flaws, but I hope that such discussion would be more beneficial and rewarding than the discussions on /b/ or on /pol/.

>>637 i would rather read harry potter than reading this guy and any books related to the same genre and era >>>/pol/ is gonna be your best guess unfortunately
>>637 Its been a while, since I read him, but his ideas don't connect with each other. One para gives one meaning then another gives another. He borrows heavily from tolstoy and others (which he admits himself). All in all, time wasted. My oldfag relatives told me, gandhi is a molesty fag, I would have saved time had I listened to them and not read Gandhi.
