Nihilism, Futurist Traditionalism and Conservationism

Linear and inverse vectors merge in zero.

26 08 11 - 14:42

Linear and inverse vectors merge in zero. Critical mass is at zero.

- Why, you could say it's spiritual.

Humanity now moves on two axes:


  1. Linear: this is our illusion of progress, an ever-increasing growth and technology, and consumerist globalism that is also liberal e.g. panders to the individual.

  2. Inverse: this is our tendency to become hollow, to lose sight of our actual souls, our values, our aesthetics and our organic culture and heritage; this is our emptiness.



When they converge, the end is night -- or rather, the long slow spiral back to chimpanzee status (no, racists, fuck off -- this is about all humans evolving toward a lower standard by our lights as those who seek enlightened adaptation).

As we go more into the merger between consumerist capitalism and internationalist liberalism, we lose sight of what makes life adventurous and inspiring, and through that, we lose sight of the real goal: self-discipline, social order, and higher aims like great art, culture, learning and conquest.

We are becoming our machines. We are the tools we once hoped would liberate us but now work against us.


From the web retailers - calculating what books and films we might be interested in, to Facebook's friend finding and image tagging services, to the search engines that guide us around the net.

It is these invisible computations that increasingly control how we interact with our electronic world.

At last month's TEDGlobal conference, algorithm expert Kevin Slavin delivered one of the tech show's most "sit up and take notice" speeches where he warned that the "maths that computers use to decide stuff" was infiltrating every aspect of our lives.

Among the examples he cited were a robo-cleaner that maps out the best way to do housework, and the online trading algorithms that are increasingly controlling Wall Street.

"We are writing these things that we can no longer read," warned Mr Slavin.

"We've rendered something illegible. And we've lost the sense of what's actually happening in this world we've made." - BBC


We made logic outside of the world. Specifically, we made it in our heads. If our mental model worked, then it must be true! -- ignoring billions of related details that together form our world. We wanted the linear intelligence, that which focused on one factor at a time and channeled it into a singular result. We did not want holism.

As a result, we have deconstructed our world and convinced ourselves that the deconstructed -- the subset of truth -- is somehow "equal" to truth.

Just as we assume the individual is "equal" to others, and the long line of evolutionary pressures that produced us, including some more able than others.

But relax, this way we feel good about each other.

And the algorithms? They just follow our lead. What's popular? What's selling? What are people voting for? What do the polls say?

A dog chasing its tail through an empty cosmos.


But this is not just a war between narco-cartels. Juarez has imploded into a state of criminal anarchy – the cartels, acting like any corporation, have outsourced violence to gangs affiliated or unaffiliated with them, who compete for tenders with corrupt police officers. The army plays its own mercurial role. "Cartel war" does not explain the story my friend, and Juarez journalist, Sandra Rodriguez told me over dinner last month: about two children who killed their parents "because", they explained to her, "they could". The culture of impunity, she said, "goes from boys like that right to the top – the whole city is a criminal enterprise".

Not by coincidence, Juarez is also a model for the capitalist economy. Recruits for the drug war come from the vast, sprawling maquiladora – bonded assembly plants where, for rock-bottom wages, workers make the goods that fill America's supermarket shelves or become America's automobiles, imported duty-free. Now, the corporations can do it cheaper in Asia, casually shedding their Mexican workers, and Juarez has become a teeming recruitment pool for the cartels and killers. It is a city that follows religiously the philosophy of a free market.

"It's a city based on markets and on trash," says Julián Cardona, a photographer who has chronicled the implosion. "Killing and drug addiction are activities in the economy, and the economy is based on what happens when you treat people like trash." - The Guardian


Welcome to your future.

A vast slum with a gleaming skyscraper rising above it.

But what created it was not treating people like trash; it was the opposite. We treat those equal people like they're the most important thing in the world! We made them the tail (individually) that we (collectively) chase like a dog.

And the result?

We unleashed unchecked competition. One goal: money and power. And it soon became a sensible goal. In the world of equal people, most of whom are incompetent, the only sensible goal was getting enough money and power to get into the gleaming skyscraper (a) and not into the vast expanse of toxic, hostile, filthy slums (b).


A new cosmological model appears to demonstrate that the universe can endlessly expand and contract, providing a rival to Big Bang theories and solving a thorny modern physics problem, according to University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill physicists. A new view that requires for a new take on our concept of time – one that has more in common with the “cyclic” views of time held by ancient thinkers such as Plato, Aristotle and Leonardo da Vinci, than the Christian Calender and Bible-influenced belief in “linear” time now so deeply imbedded in modern western thinking.

The cyclic model proposed by Dr. Paul Frampton, Louis J. Rubin Jr. distinguished professor of physics in UNC’s College of Arts & Sciences, and co-author Lauris Baum, a UNC graduate student in physics, has four key parts: expansion, turnaround, contraction and bounce.

During expansion, dark energy -- the unknown force causing the universe to expand at an accelerating rate -- pushes and pushes until all matter fragments into patches so far apart that nothing can bridge the gaps. Everything from black holes to atoms disintegrates. This point, just a fraction of a second before the end of time, is the turnaround. - Daily Galaxy


The dark cycle returns. Kali licks her lips, mounts a white horse, deliverer and destroyer.

In the name of our selves, we have chased down a bad path. We have led ourselves to doom by denying the part of life that is not an equal individual and its desires... the part outside the box... the part beyond the safe gates of the city, past the known roads, the part that isn't yet certain and isn't as petty and tangible as individual desires, sentiment, feelings and acquisitions... the part you can't define.

The adventure itself.

"Humanity now moves on two axes:"

Really? Why is that so? Without explaning these axes, your argument is rendered void. That is fallacy by statement and contradictory to our progressive movement.

"We are becoming our machines. We are the tools we once hoped would liberate us but now work against us."

Wrong. We create the society and use it for our own benefit.

"We wanted the linear intelligence, that which focused on one factor at a time and channeled it into a singular result. We did not want holism."

What are you talking about? We all think in different manners.

"A vast slum with a gleaming skyscraper rising above it."

Vast cities are a hallmark of great civilizations.

"One goal: money and power. And it soon became a sensible goal. In the world of equal people, most of whom are incompetent, the only sensible goal was getting enough money and power to get into the gleaming skyscraper (a) and not into the vast expanse of toxic, hostile, filthy slums (b)."

The goal is prosperity. Otherwise, this "liberal" society wouldn't offer the very computer you are using. We have prosperity, because equality works.

This whole site is fucking backwards; read some books. Dave - 27-08-’11 16:29

^ You only say that because you have no logical prowess. Your attitude is indicative of the goals that ANUS will never accomplish. You people are obsessed with yourselves instead of contributing to an industrialized, prosperous nation. Dave - 27-08-’11 19:38

To Dave: Why are you posting on a website which you think will have no influence on the world? Isn't that counterproductive? answer - 28-08-’11 12:45
Dave
It does not take long to derail this site's ideology, and I do not want young people to follow it, since they will regret doing so eventually. So no, it's not counterproductive. Dave - 28-08-’11 13:37

Is that really all you people have to say? Apathetic remarks? I wonder how many people here actually have IQ's above 120. Dave - 28-08-’11 13:38

Own up to your mistakes
Dave, until you admit that the Romans as a whole did not freely adopt Christianity, then you cannot be taken seriously. Read this article if you simply need more information: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Christian_persecution_of_paganism_after_Theodosius_I_until_the_fall_of_the_Roman_Empire Own up to your mistakes - 29-08-’11 05:32
disingenuous: Not candid or sincere, typically by pretending that one knows less about something than one really does
"Vast cities are a hallmark of great civilizations." You mean like this?

Great V I should definitely pronounce, impressed with your site. I had no trouble navigating through all tabs as well as related information ended up being truly simple to do to access. I recently found what I hoped for before you know it in the least. Reasonably unusual. Is likely to appreciate it for those who add forums or something, site theme . a tones way for your client to communicate. Nice task..
