PostSubject: The "right" to comfort    Fri Jan 20, 2017 7:33 pm

I may have some advantage with seeing inside the nature of liberalism, modern PC-fascist liberalism that is (which is not classically liberalism) because I've been inside that matrix. Indeed it is a matrix, a kind of enclosed virtual world.

What is the heart of this matrix? It is the implicit belief that we have a right to comfort.

What is comfort in this meaning? Think safe spaces, trigger warnings, microaggressions, LGBTQABCXYZ deference, being forced to say it's ok and even noble to cut off your genitals and take hormones to turn your body into a different gender, ...think political correctness that is built around a false and superficial compassion whereby even a woman who kidnaps a baby and raises it for 18 years as her own must be shown "understanding and compassion" and not sent to jail because she "wasn't a bad mom to the child". Also you can think of it like this: easy pleasure and the absence of discomfort without needing to earn it.

What is "earning"? It means to assert values. Ease, pleasure and comfort are just fine so long as they come from self-valuing, from active and earned asserting one's values and having that produce reciprocal compensation in society (in the form of being paid money for your work, for example). Earning money in a free enterprise capitalism means that we create value with our efforts and give that value away in free exchange for money, which is symbolic of the value we created.

Liberals today do not want to earn their comfort, pleasure and ease in life, they believe that they have a right to these things simply by virtue of existing. Practically this translates into their love of socialism, since socialism is the theft of one person's value to be given to another person. In the deranged formula of Bernie Sanders and so many others like him, "rich capitalists are evil!" and in the next breath, "we need rich capitalists to fund our socialism!"

If you can earn your ease, pleasure and comfort then these are values to you. It is proper to have these values, there is no need to claim that these are not values in themselves, but what is false is to proclaim them eternal and free values as rights owed to us. Practically again the belief in this "right" translates into a psychological position whereby one must align oneself to the status quo expectation of deference to the forms of socialist power in order to secure one's free values which one falsely believes that oneself is entitled to. That really means that one turns oneself willingly into a pet.

Pleasure, joy, comfort, ease, security, and freedom are not "god given rights", they are values to be created and earned. The merit of a society lies in the extent to which it is set up with this idea in mind, and would therefore possess an economy of voluntary transaction and earning by merit of value creation and exchange.

This is the real reason a few small number of people are protesting. They know at the instinct level that Trump represents the antithesis of their belief in a right to comfort. Trump believes in real comfort, real value-gain, and not in faking it with virtual hologram worlds and stealing real value from others at gunpoint.

Political correctness is the gunpoint at which liberal society robs people of their true potential and merit to value-create. Obviously Trump isn't politically correct, and that is because he knows once you are politically correct you've bought into the system of value-falsification.

It appears to me that you have a firm grasp of the situation. The majority of the protestors are likely government employees and welfare recipients.

Bring the jobs back? I will have to go to work? Oh, No!!! Not work!!!!

If you analyze the structure of the matrix, you get some interesting results. For one thing, the matrix is an emulation of self-valuing, of an individual self-valuing being -- the matrix is a kind of cloud with various nodal points holding up the intermedial spaces. The nodes are strong emotional or ideational moments, not anything truthful but basically something onticly cohered around something that is real, for example you have Marxist-leftist emotional cries of rage at something that doesn't exist, yet the emotional cries are very real; something has mobilized the living to attribute itself to death, similar to what you see in Islam or radical Christian cults.

I am trying to determine how many nodes are needed to maintain the matrix. I am guessing so far that it takes more than 3 or 4 strong nodes, and once you reduce the number of nodes to 4 or less that matrix starts to shake; reduce it to 2, and it collapses like a soap bubble.

Pop cultural medial PC leftism today is all about living in the cloud of the matrix, and you can see examples of nodal points all around: one easy example is the protests going on right now. The term "women's protests" is literally a nodal point. What you see as effects flowing from that "idea" is matrix-substance like a liquid flowing from soul to soul, blackening and corrupting like acid. As the matrix cannot become all-powerful or else it would literally destroy the ontic-ness of those entities within its grasp, it must instead play these strange games of approaching maximum coherence and then backtracking, lying in the middle spaces.

Another good example of nodal points are every viral Facebook post against Trump, the anti-Trump memes, the fake news, all of this shit is multiplying the number of nodes; every time you add nodes you strengthen the matrix. What is interesting is that nodes are always falling off the map, especially for those most ensnared in the matrix-illusion. This is because these people lack a Mind, and so they cannot maintain things for very long in memory and awareness. They may have 10 different metaphysical nodes simulating an existentia in their matrix-world, but if left to their own devices and with no further input from the matrix this number would slowly dwindle approaching the threshold point of 2-3 nodes, at which point the matrix cannot sustain itself. So these people require to keep feeding themselves with new nodes to compensate for those that are always falling out of their memory.

The minds of such people are literally simulations, they are not real. At their base they surely have some substantial memories and some reality contacts, namely in the form of biological instincts for example, but anything more derivative is pure empty construct. It must constantly be stimulated with new data. This is the reason why we see the media and pop culture going all ape-shit crazy right now about Trump: Trump is a threat precisely because he has knocked out many of the traditional nodal points, he has forced them into a storm and they are trying to reorient themselves. Also Trump has basically inserted real content, real values, into the matrix-illusion, which is dangerous to zombies locked in the throes of their collective madness-dream hysteria. They naturally compensate by trying to create as many new nodes as possible.

Another interesting fact is that the cloud of the matrix somewhat represents the meaning-cloud of consciousness itself. From the real meaning-cloud that is co-existential with the neural architectures of the brain, we get what we call the Mind; the matrix is trying to replicate this structure in the simulated environment of the social-memetic stratosphere, where the 'nodes' are basically representing the function of neurons in our own brains. The "world-spirit" is trying to form itself upon the backs of human minds, destroying those minds and replacing themselves with little copies of the matrix qua image-reality, which in practice represents a set of programed algorithms that determine what a person will do, say, think or feel.

PostSubject: Re: The "right" to comfort    Mon Jan 23, 2017 12:23 pm

I want to to show how the matrix is connected to feminist nihilism and analytic philosophy through expanding on the structure and relationship between the meaning-cloud and the neural architectures in the brain:

The matrix is a pure simulation consisting of images. Just as how image media (films) can show how the spheres of the mind are connected (see Parodites' epistemes) so too can image media be used to create something that seemed as if it were this interconnection, this mind, in so far as the photograph is mistaken for the reality; and more so, the photographs can be created artificially with no resemblance to reality and yet still be treated as if they were proper representations of reality.

Analytic philosophy defends the integrity of the category of the image, although thinks it is doing the exact opposite: analytic philosophy believes that it is getting beneath all images, it believes that continental philosophy is merely "imprecise" and error-ridden images while true analytic method gets to the truth. Because of this, analytic philosophy ends up "analyzing" the image-world of the philosopher's own mind as if they image-world were reality as such, unquestioned in any real way by the analytic philosopher. Analytic philosophers ask questions to avoid asking questions, they posit to avoid positing, and they think to avoid thinking.

What we call our mind is an image-representation of the contents and meanings that unfold out of the interactivity of the epistemes. The "image"-ness is simply due to how this unfolding presents itself to us as a sensory experience consisting of internal and external images. Consciousness presents itself as a given, and the philosopher looks beneath that givenness to see to the true contents, just as how words cannot be taken to give meaning and only the concepts and true content that is evoked by words really gives the meaning.

A word is always a symbol for a concept-content; a thought or a feeling is always a symbol for the truth-activities that lie underneath and constitutive of a consciousness.

The meaning-cloud that coexists immaterially alongside the changing neural patterns in the brain could be thought of as a kind of implicit, invisible, automatic system of pressures: neurological pattern-structures are highly sensitive systems that respond to meaning and thus are capable of taking consciousness from awareness of immediate sensory impression to awareness of facts, and this supreme sensitivity of the neural groups lies in how they are always self-reorganizing themselves at the behest of those meanings and facts. Neural networks in the brain are constantly self-deriving their own next iteration step, the content reflected implicitly within the particular geometries of the relations amongst the neurons, and how those neurons also tie into the rest of the biology all body and its various parts and systems, is always pushing the neurons like a pressure-force to keep trying to attain a lower energy state, namely a more efficient expression of that 'information' by virtue of which that particular neural pattern exists. The meaning-cloud is basically the why of any given neural pattern, and neurons can't directly express or represent any of that meaning, fact or contents but are only able to indicate it and shape a biological response in terms of it, like how words indicate and delimit the meaning behind the words but are not the meaning itself.

This is why consciousness cannot be located in the brain and never will be; consciousness exists in the immateriality of the pure fact-ness of its own participation in the endless sea of significances, meanings, and truths that comprise our most summative access-point to the ontic, to Being.

On feminism, we should understand feminism and all leftist critical theory from the perspective of how consciousness forms as the dynamic interactivity between neural structures and the meaning-cloud; pressures shape the neurons into ever-changing configurations, neurons that are wholly outside the "clouds" of the pressures that force them to change, like words indicating and shaping the spaces of meanings that the words themselves are entirely external to. We can understand leftist-feminist type thought in terms of this and very easily: it is the absence of any recognition that there is a difference, both in space/time as well as categorically and ontologically-epistemologically, between that out of which and in terms of which consciousness is made and that which indicates and shapes-delimits conscious spaces-- content and words, respectively.

Feminist thought not only collapses the conscious experience of the self to the threshold of its lowest dimensional contact-indication between thought and neuron, content and word, it is this very collapse itself. Imagine for a moment that a consciousness were convinced it was synonymous with and equal to its own immediate-indicating, to the rote biological markers changed in the body by virtue of neurological shifts; I am convinced this is how the consciousness of most non-human animals operates, as a kind of most-reduced collapse of the potential for the formation of a meaning-cloud to instead merely follow the geographic contours of the neurological-biological landscapes, whereas humans learn how to use those landscapes to the purposes of producing greater significance and meaning, namely as apprehending truths. Then the body itself, the biology itself comes to reflect truths (an easy example is how humans have been physically shaped in terms of our own standards of beauty). But for the non-human animals (some non-human animals do seem to generate meaning-clouds, however) they basically have a zero-dimensional meaning-cloud and their consciousness is indistinguishable from the biological-heuristic geography of bodies engaged in sense-perception, and this is essentially what feminism etc. represent, a collapse of the mind to its lowest possible parameters of merely biological, heuristic, "neurochemical" sense-perceiving devoid of fact- and meaning-perceiving-- the empty image of pleasure takes the place of a possibility for true happiness, in the hedonistic nihilism and Prozac-popping culture of today, for example. (This also shows why they are so hyper-sensitive with their political correctness and safe spaces: the matrix is unstable and artificial, and subject to extreme pressure-force and possible collapse at even the slightest reality contact.)

Critical theory and analytic philosophy are nothing more than the failure to perceive and respond to meaning, and the reduction of factual-perceiving consciousness to the most minimum standard of the empty and structurally simplified empirical. You can see, therefore, that these "philosophies" really only exist to ward off any possible contact with real philosophizing.

The matrix today (in which throngs of liberals and sjw's are trapped) is literally a new kind of religion. I say new kind in the radical sense: it is categorically different from the old religions because while the old religions were built within the intersectional spaces between biology and meaning the new religion of the liberal-left/technocratic/transhumanist matrix is actually able to collapse the meaning-space to the biological dimension, thus utterly eradicating the mind. This is not something that traditionally religions are really able to do, and indeed the better religions actually participate in assisting the formation and development of the meaning-cloud, albeit within very strict and prescribed limits. But the new matrix-religion of the left-liberal paradigm today actually has as its aim the destruction of all traces of Mind and collapsing human behavior, thought and feeling to the biological dimension. It can achieve this with the aid of modern technologies that succeed at simulating sense-perception from within an artificial environment, in tandem with modern technologies of production and economics that create globalized systems of capital-distribution whose central function is to remove human beings from occupying any significant or critical social, political or economic junctures, as well as transferring wealth and property away from local contexts and up into global systems. Feminism, analytic philosophy, scientific positivism, pseudo-academic political correctness, neo-Christian new age-y liberalism and "secular" neoliberal global capitalism all conspire to assist this process of putting the matrix in place of individual minds and putting globalized systems in place of our natural human communal mind-assistive structures (local communities, history and culture, family relations, etc.).

Opposed to the right to comfort stands the right to effort.

"Right effort" isn't possible without that right.

I think of the right to be left the fuck alone, which is the rational basis for the right to privacy. Seems like this is connected somehow into the right to effort.

Well I don't even knew that right at all until I came to Canada. It's a kingly right. It doesn't exist in Europe, it's too densely populated. The right to effort, the right to fight, the right not to be called evil if you happen to be stronger than others and therefore have higher standards, and want to exert yourself beyond what they could endure for themselves - all this is problematic when you have a populace that needs its ego secured by "knowing" that its weakness is the meaning of the universe.

What if "ego" is posited as a mass phenomenon, this very incomplete, unwhole entity weve been loathing and talking about - held together as goo with other egos by the power of a Superego - who takes away all the responsibility for them.

The anger now unleashed is merely and purely anger at being forced to account for themselves, their thinking, their actions, their choices. They find that "fascistic". Trump signifies the removal of the Superego, and thus the acknowledgement of the Id... on both sides.

Our own Id is merely Drive, fire, we know our own danger. Their Id is what now is overtaking what the Superego left for prey - the illusion of 'good'.

I talk about ego often but really, there is no such thing.

There is self-recognition and self-actualization.

Ego, Id, and Superego are just aspects of self. That is, the totality of what we are; an animal with a fairly well developed brain.

I love myself therefore I love my ego.

"Leftists."

There are real problems facing our country at the moment; people can't get a job, health-care sucks, education system sucks, there's a bunch of unelected bureaucrats running all of Europe, our past administrations have been writing laws that do nothing but take advantage of us, etc. and all they got is "hate is bad, peace is good, rape is bad, don't kill kids". How do I translate that into a viable foreign policy or economic strategy? It's just emotional gibberish that serves no greater purpose than giving these little kids an excuse to go out with their friends and pretend like they're protesting something. "Hate is bad" isn't a political opinion. "Rape sucks" isn't a political opinion.  It's not a philosophy, it's beneath even platitude. Because these people don't have political opinions. They don't know shit. They don't know anything relevant to the national dialogue and they're fucking stupid. That typifies most of them. Then there is a smaller percentage of these, namely the autistic spaghetti warriors who have a neurotic complex like you describe about feeling entitled to emotional comfort; they write blog posts, they have tumblrs, they have chicken tenders. Then there's an even smaller percentage of actual communist/feminist/whateverthefuck ideologues.


All in all it's just a big mass of aimless, wreathing dumbass-meat that the few Soros types that actually know what they're doing can easily marshal into their service and direct toward an objective like creating civil unrest that they don't need to understand in order to accomplish.

Sheep don't tend to run around destroying the land and trying to kill the shepherd. Leftists aren't sheep, they are rather the dogs.

That is to say, they are supposed, as humans, to have capacities of kinds, unlike sheep. They have physical capacities that allow them to form threats, this is why they are useful to the nazi Left.

They are dogs that have been beaten, starved and kept in the dark. The strategy of the nazi Left is to pour pigfat over all responsible people and then unleash their hounds.

Leftists rioters are dogs of hell, trying to drag us all away from the green Earth into the sewers of ontic disintegration of the soul.

Your thoughts are much deeper than mine are. But I'm not going to disagree with you. We have been talking Trump at the Taoist forum and I had to announce that I have converted to Apatheism. If I can't change it why worry about it?

I would always prefer a sheep over a rabid dog.

Good point. Our preferences lead us through our life.

I prefer wolves over sheep though.
Brotherhood over herd... hunt over obedience...

but dogs... they are man-made.
I only like wolf- or bear-like life dogs and supremely clever small ones.

No disagreement. But remember, it was within the nature of the dog to be domesticated. Part of its evolution. Same with the horse but not so with the zebra.

And it was within the nature of man to be domesticated and "civilized".

Apatheism is no way to go. Whenever you feel the draw of apathy, just be like this guy and snap out of it:

Or like this:


 

___________
"We must, now armed with such a language, realize the “transcendental unity of ideas,” through a new morality that aims, not to hypostasize experience and grasp in positive knowledge a series of particular virtues and vices, but rather to fully explicate this continuity; where philosophy exists to represent this transcendental order, morality most exist to mediate the two spheres, the spheres of experience and ideality." -Parodites

"Was it necessary for the sense of truth that Nietzsche described as developed by the Judeo-Christian tradition that then manifested itself in the scientific methodology to turn against the symbolic foundation of that structure and demolish it... Jung's answer was that the conflict between science and religion is a consequence of the immature state of both of those domains of thinking... it's just that we aren't good enough at being religious or at being scientific to see how they might be reconciled." -Jordan Peterson
