Life is like a box of chocolates you know. They usually suck. Just get a bag of ferro roche instead.

A sik þau trûðu


Nisus ait, "Dine hunc ardorem mentibus addunt,
Euryale, an sua cuique deus fit dira cupido?"

Have the gods set this ruling passion in my heart,
or does each man's furious passion become his god?
- Virgil.


It is not opium which makes me work but its absence, and in order for me to feel its absence it must
from time to time be present.-- Antonin Artaud

And if anybody else's inhibits you? Cuts your money flow? Heh, I actually have a bunch of those myself. But I'd rather consort with chocolatiers and consume even better chocolate. And eat them in the setting I like. If I can't, fuck chocolate. I'll eat straight from the cacao.

That world is perfect precisely because it recognizes its own conditionality. The coherence happens within time, not beyond it, beyond the idea of it, into a greater idea. Philosophy must first arrive there, the peak of nihilism, as contradictory as that sounds, before it can turn its face back upon the world.

The model of the severed mind will be instrumental in the building of institutions per value ontological principles - P allows us to see how the mind forms its ideals, how the mind works that is not integrated with an organic context but rather integrated with the principles on which it, specifically, relies, which make it self-valuing-pure.

N could argue that this is simply the will to power as it expresses itself in the one whose energies can not find a way outward, and he says this of all philosophers, but of course with that, nothing is said. What I take from Nietzsche ultimately is that life is all about specific values, not general ones.

Only 'self-valuing' is a general value. Philosophical self-valuing must explore the path of the mind unto itself, the mind that no longer requires the body in its evolutionary process. This mind has a future, because it works both ways - it frees itself and illuminates the theoretical freedom every mind has. This is why it can build ... Mannaz.

In part, because it doesn't care. There is a relationship to Buddhism, but it is far more indifferent, which means it can be partial, and synthetically complete.
