PostSubject: Pithagoras   Mon Oct 05, 2015 3:25 pm

Pithagoras found nature immediately as mundane as any unthinking man, the same with mathematics as boring. What made nature misteriously transcendental was that he had the code, the number. Numbers are transcendental inasmuch as they decode the normally mundane nature into a mediate knowledge that imprints power on the brain itself... The feeling, the almost smell of wisdom in trees comes from the knowledge that numbers can be applied to them and almost make man commune with nature in terms of man instead of of nature.

Pithagoras was a badass. But he had no transcendental knowledge, only an applied philosophy that gave a feeling of mistic communion.


In the final instance, I have only found philosophy to reward my suffering with theretofore unimagined... What? Good shit. That the answer to the world, in the final instance, is "yes." Not the answer to ME. To the WORLD.
