The Philosopher's Stone


It is most apposite, not to say synchronistic, that the first book in the Harry Potter series is called The Philosopher's Stone

As I noted in my Calvin and Hobbes post, the famed alchemist's ideal of the philosopher's stone, the so-called elixir of life, is nothing other than imagination.

And no one to my knowledge has reproached J.K. Rowling with a lack of imagination. 

Verbal Abuse


One question I would like to ask anarchist researcher Mark Passio is whether verbal abuse is a wrong under Natural Law if it results in and was done with the intention of causing harm to another human being. 

Insightful Opinion


I'm a master at insightful opinion, although this too is only an opinion. 

Data - Information - Knowledge


It could be argued that data becomes information when technically interpreted and information becomes knowledge when critically evaluated. 

Relative Failure of The Nietzschean Project


While it is true that I have made liberal use of Nietzschean insights and observations on this blog, I will be the first to admit to the relative failure of the Nietzschean Project understood as creating a morality that is beyond good and evil.

While Nietzsche saw good and evil as relative quantities, based as he claimed on so-called masterly and slavish instincts, I see them as absolute quantities in the sense that violating or harming others is never a right one possesses except of course for reasons of genuine self-defence which constitutes the masculine principle of protecting one's rights (the feminine principle being the equally important principle of non-aggression). 

Nietzsche was also evidently a social phobic and much of his discourse concerning the 'herd', the 'masses', the 'unclean' smacks of an arguable superiority complex that stemmed from his isolation and inability to relate to ordinary people. 

All that being said, I see the Nietzschean project of going beyond good and evil as only a partial failure in so far as thinkers can teach us as much if not more from their errors of judgement than from their accurate and true statements.

In the case of Nietzsche I learnt the hard way that moral relativism and superiority complexes inevitably lead to suffering and isolation which is why I owe a huge debt to contemporary thinker Mark Passio for enlightening me as to Natural Law as well as to the true, objective, evil that occurs daily in the world and what can be done to fight and redress it. 

I also tend to see Heidegger's moral failings as a Nazi (Not-see) and his general suspicions regarding so-called 'moralising' discourse as symptomatic of his being influenced and seduced by Nietzsche as well as of the yawning gaps in his philosophical architecture which, while claiming to fight evil, failed to see that he was himself not free from evil influence and mind control (until of course well after the Second World War as evidenced by his lecture What is Called Thinking?).

In conclusion much can be learnt from Nietzsche and Heidegger's errors of judgement and for this they can be commended if one happens to be in a charitable and forgiving mood.

Hurting


Hurting emotionally is one of the most unpleasant things you can ever feel, regardless of the lessons and wisdom that can be drawn from such hurt. 

Universal Law


While the expression universal law is often interpreted in the sense of that which is valid for all, it also contains an idea of law that is somehow intrinsic to the universe itself, uni-verse itself meaning the one change according to Mark Passio (see also Universe). 
"I am that which has to overcome itself again and again"
wrote Nietzsche about the universe's position with regards to things. 

Universal law is the same thing as Natural law and the reason they are valid for all is that they are intrinsic to our Creator-given existence on this planet, the universe itself being the ultimate Creator and Architect of our lives. 

Losing It


It is a sure sign of being unwell, not to say of demonic possession, when you start attacking and alienating those who are closest to and care the most for you, be it family members, partners or friends. 

I know this from personal experience. This is why when someone I care for makes personal attacks against me I tend to worry more about their state of mind than the fact that they've tried to hurt me. 

Benefits in Learning about Psychopaths


The one and main thing to be gained from reading up on and researching phenomena such as psychopathy, illuminati practices and globalist agendas is that, in a right-minded person, this will have the effect of clarifying moral law, in so far as it will be made clear through this research that some people want to harm others in every which way possible, and that faced with this reality, lessons about treating others and oneself with care (which is enlightenment) can be more easily drawn.

Taking myself as an example, it was not until I became familiar with all the knowing and calculated evil in the world, i.e. the desire of some powerful and not so powerful people to harm others and violate their natural law rights, that I ceased to think along moral relativist lines, i.e. that there is no objective difference between right and wrong (which is the second tenet of ideological satanism, at least according to ex-Satanic priest Mark Passio). 

This coming to learn about the world we live in and choosing precisely to look at the negative rather than merely ignoring it is why embracing truth, that which is, in all its darkness is a sure way to knowledge of right and wrong and the universe itself. 

By contrast, ignoring all that is evil in the world will prevent people from drawing lessons that need to be drawn as to moral/natural laws and the absolute and non relative difference that lies between moral and immoral behaviour. 

And as someone said
'Ignoring the "negative" ensures you get more of it.'

My Rubbish


I admit to the likely possibility that a lot if not all of what I say is rubbish. Sometimes I express myself in coarse language thinking it to be cool but perhaps I should be more sensitive with my language at times, especially if people get offended by it. 

It is very hard to be always self-aware and free from rubbish. 

Being a philosopher doesn't mean having the courage only to put up with one's errors but also to have the forthright decency to admit to them or, failing that, their possible existence. 

Sod's Law


It's funny how when you are not available and/or don't have your phone on you everyone decides to text and call you but when you in turn try to text and call others they are not for their part available to communicate. 

Life's a cold-hearted bitch in other words, even for something as trivial as phone and text relationships. 

Heidegger & Arendt Controversies


I have made the mistake in the past to read up on and engage in French controversies surrounding both Hannah Arendt and Martin Heidegger and all it did was make me angry at the world for dismissing and overlooking the great amount of invaluable insight contained in both these thinkers' works, despite their inevitable flaws as imperfect human beings, no human ever being perfect in the sense of flaw-less. 

This is one area where I will gladly turn a blind eye and a deaf ear for sanity's sake. Instead I will follow Nietzsche's example when he said
"Let looking away be my only form of denial."
