Simultaneous Realities

It’s depressing to watch smart people chase their tails, searching for moral high ground.

To the parties involved, there is some pretence or engagement or negotiation, but the reason the new right and the feral left cannot communicate is that they are speaking two  completely different languages. Reality is a relative experience. As Scott Adams has pointed out, there are two different American realities operating in the same geographical space. Adams says that it is OK if the movies in our heads are inconsistent, as long as this doesn’t manifest conflict in reality. Well…

Negotiation is impossible where there is no agreement on even base levels of morality, and where there are no pre-existing rules of argument or evidence. 

The split between the left and right is in some ways even worse than a failure to communicate between those from different nations, because it seems to us that if we are speaking the same language. The differences are not at the literal level, but the connotative.

Post-Spencer punch, there are now different definitions of racism and Nazi operating in society in order to enable/excuse violence. There are also different definitions of

  • life (abortion);
  • of sexual intercourse, consent and rape;
  • of gender;
  • of fascism;
  • comedy, art and politics.

This is a typical example of an attempt at an argument that merely insists on a definition.

Repeating the same definition again does not make it any more or less true. There is no empathy, no negotiation. Repetition is not an argument.

Cultural wars are not being fought for geographical territory. They are fought for semantic dominance. This is because we live in an overly litigious society, and these seemingly insignificant definitional inconsistencies become extremely significant when they are being used to direct the coercive power of the State.

The epidemic inability to empathise becomes clear when one looks at how history is understood in society and how legal definitions have changed over time. It is impossible to understand concepts like freedom, law, family, marriage, love, life and sovereignty in the past without levels of empathy that most are incapable of. When one learns that in the past, a married husband and wife were one legal entity under unita caro this is an outrage to one with the contemporary understanding of property right and legal title. Anyone who believes this legal fiction resulted in households with demure women who had no say in how the household was kept wildly overestimates the influence the operation of the law has over culture. Most standards that seem outrageous to us now can be traced to logical conclusions for those living in that culture. To fail to achieve this level of empathy is to believe that for all of human history mankind was a barbarous rabble, completely unrecognisable from the enlightened, end-products we are now.

Until we become more aware of why these conflicts are so hard to reconcile, until it can be understood that some common cultural values are the basis of negotiation, we will continue chasing our tails, pursuing endless definitional alterations, arguing over the truth of arbitrary concepts.

In Rant Chuck Palahniuk describes a world in which the privileged older classes live by day, and the youthful underclass lives by night, dictated by a strict curfew. This is to deal with the problem of overpopulation – two cities existing in the same space, but in different temporalities. In his excellent YouTube video Stefan Molyneux described these disparate world’s and the inevitable collision that will result.

This metaphor is not too far removed from the truth. Go to any modern Western city and see – the baby-boomers still hold all the best jobs, still hold all the best real estate and still dictate culture and policy. The ageing population has meant that the most selfish of all generations has been able to retain control of this reality for an abnormal amount of time. The world shouldn’t be theirs anymore…

Like the youth in Rant, youth today is forced to live around this dominant skeksis class, pedalling ever-faster to keep the boomers’ flawed contraption in the air, for a increasingly irrelevant and anachronistic privileged class who repay in nothing but criticism and shame. The youth are a slave class, working minimum wage, casual hospitality jobs, spit-shining the emperor’s non-existent clothes. Society is divided by race and gender and sexual preference and every damn thing under the sun except the real division – age.

The semantic arguments need to stop. The real enemies must be identified before any grounds for negotiation can be established. The longer the tide is held back, the bigger the wave.

Visualization and the Law of Attraction

Conor McGregor came to the UFC to be the best and to show the world a type of fighter they had never seen before. Watch and listen to these classic Conor McGregor interviews to trace his journey, starting with his early statements of intent, through to the realisation of his vision, and how he has reframed his setbacks, both injury and defeat, to keep his momentum.

When you’re in the struggle it is harder to visualize. When you can do that, that really makes that law of attraction work.

Conor visualises how his fights will go, using his imagination, his kinaesthetic senses, focusing on how the moment will feel.

I see myself as the champ already, I visualize everything; I visualize this conversation, I visualize the walk-out,  have the shots picked out, If you see it in your head, you see it before your eyes.

I can feel that gold around my waist.

Is it all some kind of placebo or self-hypnosis?

A vision allows you to align the conscious and unconscious mind to focus on making a vision a reality. It also prevents obsessive regret and self pity. Even meme magic is just science that hasn’t been discovered yet.

The excellent YouTube videos by Mindsmash provides some basics about theta brainwaves and finding flow, and how certain mental states blur the line between dream and reality, perhaps to the degree that the mind cannot tell the difference.

Flow is vital to visualization. It is linked to mindset by Mike Cernovich at Danger and Play. Visualization is a major component  of Gorilla Mindset and is illustrated in MAGA Mindset, which used Donald Trumps campaign as another example of these principles in action.

These connections are summarised by Cernovich here:

Your imagination is your reality.

I imagined myself living off of a laptop. I imagined myself becoming an author. Gorilla Mindset has now sold so many copies that people accuse me of lying about it, as first-time independent authors never have my level of success.

My imagination manifests itself as will, which imposes itself on reality.

In Masaru Emoto’s The Healing Power of Water he references Robert Sheldrake’s concept of the morphogenetic field, the middle ground between genes and evolution. This may not just lend some weight to the concept of visualization, but also to epigenetics, reincarnation and mimetics. Part 2 of this blog series will explain  this connection more clearly. Later blogs will focus of Conor McGregor, Donald Trump and Mike Cernovich.

#DumpStarWars

I jumped off the Star Wars bandwagon years ago. I always liked the original, but there were always kids who liked it more than me. Obsessives who make their obsession their whole identity have always bothered me.

I heard that last year’s rehash was SJW propaganda, and featured one of the most egregious Mary Sue clichés in all of cinema. After seeing what Disney has done to Marvel Comics, none of this came as a surprise. Disney has been working on its monopoly over the dreams of children for its entire existence, collecting and corrupting them, like the Krank.

I’m sorry to be the one who must break it to Star Wars fans who were on the Trump bandwagon – this is what counter-culture is actually like. Being in a real counter-culture is a lonely struggle.Those who make reality their business don’t get to enjoy escapism. For anyone who didn’t realise this during the election, you realise it now.

Many of us had to make peace with everything from silence to direct hostility from artists who have generally not spent anywhere near the time I have learning how to  research, think and write. Most have a tenuous grasp of how government and the law actually work.

To those like Jack Posobiec, who started the hashtag, I’m sorry but you need to realise what the rest of us were forced to realise  – if you are one of the good guys, if you are part of the counter-culture, YOU DON’T GET TO ENJOY THE MAINSTREAM! Any of it. They hate you. They hate me. They will stop at nothing to attack us, isolate us, separate us.

  • Do you disavow Richard Spencer?
  • Do you believe #Pizzagate?
  • Do you care about Trump as Darth Vader and Amy Schumer as Barbie, or are mainstream cultural wars beneath you?

These ops are designed to divide and isolate the Alt Right, to turn us against each other. This recent Star Wars is designed to create a divide between the intellectual, stoic new conservatives and the mischievous, enthusiastic space monkeys that have been so useful in making conservatism the new punk rock.

So if you are a basement dweller who loves Star Wars, but became drawn into the alt-right through #GamerGate, you have been living in a fantasy where you get to enjoy all your escapist movies games and books and vicariously enjoy politics though memes. This is the time to GET SERIOUS.

The intellectual property ‘Star Wars’ you all helped breathe life into, that you visualised into existence, has been sold into slavery, and eventually slaughtered. Now the skins of the dead are being placed over PC bullshit to trick you.

Andrew Breitbart said, politics flows downstream from culture. The mainstream is an important battleground in the cultural war, especially regarding the indoctrination of children. The mainstream is trolling us, using what Mike Cernovich recently called the “Iverson Principle“. Do not let them make us look ridiculous, triggered like a sensitive snowflake, when the SJWs troll us.

We should have taken this outrageous insult with the our characteristic humour thrown the entirety of our support behind the Empire:

  • Buy Empire merch
  • Root for the empire in the cinema and just act totally amazed when they eventually ‘lose’
  • Cheer for every token victory the Empire has, and boo the end credits.

If they want to call us Nazi’s, ask them why they keep producing the damn merch. There is no referee to enforce the rules of fairness, and if there was, he wouldn’t be on our side. Lighten up guys. We create, they react. We’re above this kind of hysterical finger-pointing. These aren’t the droids you are looking for.

I Need You

Yesterday I had to go into the street in front of my house to find out why a woman was screaming. 

She was screaming that she was calling the cops. My girlfriend reached for her phone to do the same. I laughed that the cops could probably hear the screaming over the phone.

The screamer heard us through the window and began to scream at us, so we went outside. Just as I got outside a car that had been following the screamer pulled up. I told my girlfriend to get inside and prepared myself for what may come.

The pursuer was not what I expected. He was skinny, young and distraught. In tears he said,”She’s bi-polar, and she’s having an episode”.

“They’re trying to help!” he yelled at the screamer.

***

I checked my phone when I woke up this morning and noticed a Washington Post article that had been linked to me on Facebook. For a second I thought it might have been another Godfrey Elfwick (@GodfreyElfwick) hoax. What stood out to me, amongst the absolute, bat-shit craziness of the article was the hypnotic repetition:

“I wanted to find an equal. A man who wouldn’t feel the need to step in and rescue me. I didn’t need rescuing.”

“We’d both bring the things we have to offer and place them on the table. My ability to multitask and keep everyone’s schedules on track would sit next to his ability to fix cars, cook or read books in silly voices.”

“I have the means to fix our car. I, on my own, can support my family. I not only have the strength to keep it together mentally and emotionally but I also have the strength to carry my daughter home. I have the strength to carry all of us.”

This woman wonders why she cannot find a man, while at the same time insisting she doesn’t need one for anything other than fungible manual labour and to be some kind of clown, while she controls everything else. The man cannot want to save her, even from herself.

This reminded me of one of my favourite articles by the notorious Roosh V, who notes that most women forbid themselves to admit they need a man. Most forbid themselves to admit they even want a man. Modern man is replaceable:

“It’s hard to dispute the notion that a woman who believes she doesn’t need a man won’t make as good of a relationship partner as one who does. She will treat you as a distraction to her more important job, girls’ nights out, and social networking validation happy time. Men have become an utterly replaceable and expendable commodity in a girl’s life. Her interest in a man is not unlike her interest in a new television show or Apple product…Women don’t seek out comfort or stability in men anymore—they seek entertainment…We are not men in the traditional sense—we are clowns. “

Throughout history men and women have needed each other for survival. Man has evolved with the desire to be needed by women. It is his main biological imperative. Unfortunately for him, he has succeeded as provider and protector so well that he is no longer needed. Evolutionarily refined and reinforced behaviour has been deemed inappropriate. The systems of provision and protection that man has created has made him obsolete. He has worked to create networks to protect his family even in his death and this is his reward – his life replaced by a vibrator and IVF.

This article is full of the kind of male sensitivity that eventually gives way confused hostility.

Feminism requires that a woman never say she needs a man. Feminism requires women to withhold the one thing that men need more than anything – to be needed. Is the male need to be needed misogynistic?

***

It is a deeply cruel thing to forbid a woman to tell a man that she needs him. I told my girlfriend that I need her. I looked into her eyes and meant it, and she returned it. We embraced and I felt a rush, out of nowhere. The words manifest a psychosomatic response.

Denial of such reality, a denial of who and what we’ve always been and what we’ve always needed is a recipe for existential angst. To be open is to be vulnerable, but to withhold what others need does not allow either to thrive. The scarcity mindset of the animal who cannot be itself.

A parent who withholds attention and affection is guilty of child abuse. As physical violence towards children has become (rightly) demonised, emotional abuse and neglect has become more common, and as a result, withholding is likely to trigger a traumatic response even more than physical violence.

Is the need to be needed inherently misogynistic? It may be argued that this dynamic casts a woman as an inferior. In The Way of the Superior Man David Deida emphasises the complementary nature of masculine and feminine sexual energy and attraction that constitutes a recognition of biological differences as the basis for the negotiation necessary in the maintenance of a relationship. Understanding between genders (and races and religions, etc.) is based on mutual recognition and negotiation of objective difference, not denial of nature, denial of identity and denial of history: cultural Marxism. Without a grasp of reality, there can only be emotional, reactionary responses – temper tantrums.

This girl may have truly believed she wanted to call the police, but it is more likely she was enjoying the power the threat contained. When the police were called her objective reality changed, the situation created new emotions, and suddenly she didn’t want the police to come.

The screamer was aware enough, amidst her ‘episode’ to understand what a call to the police actually meant. She was aware of the rhetorical power of the threat in contrast to the reality. She was not out of control.

Prove yourself to me…

She needed her man to show her that he needed her – to follow her in the car, to protect her even when she told him to go and kill himself.

Prove yourself to me

I remember fights like that, when my girlfriend would storm out of the flat and into the ghetto where we lived. She knew I would follow, terrified for her safety but powerless to stop her.

Prove yourself to me

She was cogent enough that when she threw a CD at me, she made sure it was Guns ‘n’ Roses – Appetite for Destruction – one I didn’t care about and that was easily replaceable.

Prove yourself…

***

Obviously the ‘bi-polar’ aspect cannot be ignored, but mental health is a topic for another day. For the purposes of this blog, please let it suffice that I do not believe this condition is responsible for this behaviour. This girl was aware of her surroundings. She kicked a car, but only the tire. The kicked a fence, but only the strong post. She knew the difference between the threat of the police, and the arrival of the police. This is not an ‘episode’. This is a tantrum, most likely caused by alcohol, cigarettes, bad diet, bad sleeping habits and the stress of unstable home and work life – the lifestyle of the modern 20 year old.

As these factors change, behaviour changes. As lessons are learned, life improves. Your current state is not who you are. Never make a decision when you are depressed, or when you are too happy.

Excusing such behaviour as an ‘episode’ is callous towards those who suffer from chronic mental conditions, and it also stunts personal growth. Making excuses for such women is the real misogyny – the misogyny of lowered expectations.

Clip: I Can’t Fix You

The Alt-Right, Part 1

First, there was the Rise of Trump. Then there was his glorious victory. Then there was celebration. There was so much winning!

Then there Roman Salute controversy.

I trusted Mike Cernovich before the election. I did the Gorilla Mindset course after hearing him on FreeDomain Radio with Stefan Molyneux. That was right after the Orlando shooting. His website, Danger and Play, brought a lot of things I was interested in together into one package – fitness, philosophy, masculinity, politics, law, internet marketing, even cage fighting, into one package. I needed his motivational advice and I can honestly say that everything he advised has born fruit.

Mike was right about Trump too. To be in some small way part of such a truly historical moment was one of the most uplifting experiences of my life.

I don’t know Richard Spencer’s work.

In MAGA Mindset Cernovich explains that the Nazi accusation it is a useful way for liberals to avoid engaging with arguments brought by conservatives – Godwin’s Law. Like other N-words, this word is as powerful as we let it be. This recent splintering of the Alt-right is the first successful blow landed by the left in a while. They forced the disavowal, so important to the social justice warriors.

This is why the Richard Spencer controversy happened. So like all Western men, I must now examine how I feel about Nationalism, white supremacy, Nazism and the Jewish question.

My father was always fascinated with WWII. In order to explain the history of the war to his boys, it was necessary to explain the motivations and perspective of both sides. My father had a respect for the military strength and expertise, and technological innovation that the Germans displayed in WWII. I think a strongly ingrained affinity with the underdog was a part of it too, a result of his Irish blood.

My father always portrayed an extremely empathetic picture of the German soldiers and was enraged by any film that either represented them as stereotypical villains or as cowards. I think the post-WWII anti-Nazi propaganda films grated his empathetic nerve as strongly as todays pro-SJW garbage grates mine. You can’t help but find yourself empathising with the “bad”  guys, if only to preserve a sane vision of the world for yourself as a defence mechanism, one bereft of pure evil.

It is an unfortunate result of tribalism that as one enemy is vanquished, if another cannot be found externally, one must be found internally.

*

This disavowal is the exact thing Trump supporters didn’t let happen during Trump’s campaign. The enemy they  were against seemed so powerful they could overlook our differences. This is the isolation tactic Vox Day identified in SJWs Always Lie

These people are clearly big league players within the movement. Spencer clearly either doesn’t get it,  or wishes to be a careerist right wing talking head. I don’t disavow these guys for being White Nationalists. I disavow them for being so fucking selfish and stupid they put the movement at risk. The best point of Roosh’s article was that we missed an opportunity to expand the boundaries of free speech and instead created a limit for ourselves.

Our free speech would have expanded if we helped Spencer, but that opportunity is lost. 

By attacking Spencer, we are announcing to the world that we are scared of being called a Nazi and racist.

The proper response when the fake news tells you you’re a Nazi is to say “Fuck you.” The proper response to when they call you a racist is “So what?” The proper response when they call you a rapist is to say, “I certainly wouldn’t rape you.” The only way we can take away the power from these terms is to not immediately deny you are one.

I am a law student. Mike Cernovich is a lawyer. I feel that coming from the legal perspective, at least one that appreciates and venerates the English tradition of Common Law, must inevitably lead to an appreciation of Nationalism. This is because in many ways Nationalism and the concepts of negotiation and diplomacy, that were forever tainted by the disaster of the First World War, are the political equivalent of the adversarial justice system which relies on balanced parties reaching an Aristotelian mean through competition and concession. The political apparatus is designed to regulate parity, not define morality. This is the domain of the Eurocentric obsession with collectivism and irrational faith in central planning despite decades of evidence of its failure.

I tried to talk to my brother about Spencer, Nazism and the Alt-Right. He has always been far more interested in WWII and history than me, so I saw him as an authority. My brother differentiates nationalism and Nazism,  claiming nationalism focuses more on institutions and culture and Nazism focuses on race.  Through Nationalism it is possible to measure the success of societies against one another, separated from racial factors. Is it possible to objectively compare the societies of different cultures? I believe it is. Paul Joseph Watson believes you can.

Like Paul Joseph Watson, Stefan Molyneux and Mike Cernovich, my brother was quick to provide an unsatisfying dichotomy of civic Nationalism and Nazism,  making this claim that culture and race can be separated.

So why was that so unsatisfying? Roosh made a compelling article against disavowal. Swedish Nationalist The Golden One sees such concessions as betrayal.Why don’t the left have to disavow Communism? Look at how Castro was just publicly fellated by Trudeu. Obama has never disavowed violence committee by Black Lives Matter.

The fantasy that other races can be assimilated into Western culture kind of reminds me about the old line about Communism – it’s a nice idea that hasn’t been  implemented properly. This begs the question of whether such assimilation is possible.

I believe in universally preferable behaviour. The rule of law, the separation of church and state, the free market, the scientific method – this is the West. It is too easy to assume that there is nothing specific that ties our culture to us. Are there inherent ties between the Western races and Western culture that might explain why the leaders of other races seemed so obsessed with control, while our leaders trusted us? Maybe the existence and success of the West skewed the development of those other races, creating a constant state of scarcity that plunged them into r-selected reproductive strategies and worse.

Democracy cannot be maintained with an average IQ under 90, according to Charles C. Murray’s The Bell Curve and researched by Helmuth Nyberg. The IQ disparity seems to be the result of the conditions in the West necessitating the ability to delay gratification as a genetic advantage.

The ability to delay gratification remains the primary test in any civilisation. All forms of education or investment, any resultant success is due to planning and a OODA loop. All addictive and compulsive behaviours are the result of a lack of these characteristics, and todays victim culture privileges such behaviour.

With no God to condition such behaviour the majority have nothing to guide them but a degenerate culture. Gambling and substance abuse are symptoms of a mind that cannot delay gratification and requires a constant illusions of control and participation, like children learning to control their bodily functions or mice hitting the pleasure button.

This slight advantage expanded the West exponentially through technology and innovation, which is why Western culture reveres innovation more than other cultures.

Can Western values truly be assimilated if they cannot be understood by those who do not have the capacity? If not, how can Western values be spread, without voluntarism.

Part 2

2016 was the Year of Visualization

2016 was a year of creative inspiration, dominated by men who have the ability to shape the reality around them. Visualization, or the law of attraction, must be differentiated from ‘the Secret‘, which was  an attempt to make the law of attraction a product. It is not the creation of matter from nothing. It is a way to consciously create synchronicity between the conscious and unconscious mind.

We like to think that we know who we are. We like to think we are in control of our identity. We are definitely not the sum process of a bizarre combination of chemical reactions and learned behaviour. When you can’t sleep, when you can’t eat, and when you can’t bear to sit alone in an empty house, it is your unconscious that won’t let you rest. This is the bug. Socrates called it his daimon. It is the source…

When I was a younger I was fascinated that Marilyn Manson could crown himself the Antichrist Superstar before he’d released the album, and the world make it happen; that Kid Rock could announce to the world he was going platinum, and the world promptly complied. 

I saw it as some kind of mass-hypnosis, that no one wanted to be the one to point out that the emperor is naked, and this is not entirely removed from the truth. There is an element of hypnosis, but the actor is not just hypnotising the audience. The actor is hypnotising himself, and the delusion can be infectious.

Scott Adams picked Donald Trump to win the 2016 election based on his rhetorical abilities. Vox Day wrote about the rhetoric/logic dichotomy in SJWs Always Lie. Mike Cernovich makes self-talk a major part of Gorilla Mindset.

Whether this is all a form of active self-delusion or a way to re-programme your brain is irrelevant. We are talking about the space between the letters, where no regulation can reach.

There were conversations going on beneath the waves of every Trump speech. Beings more in touch with the subconscious are more in touch with the the zeitgeist, through the collective unconscious, and are thus more readily struck by the bolts of inspiration that float through it.

Donald Trump’s subconscious spoke through him to the subconscious of enough of his voters to make them recognise an existential threat as old as this epigenetic subconscious, the battle between genders and the r/K gene war it produces. The conscious is confused, fleeting and easily distracted or manipulated by emotional responses to programming at that level. The ancient unconscious brain, the soul if you will, is less easily fooled.

There will be more on Conor McGregor in an upcoming feature blog on visualization. There will be more on Trump and Mike Cernovich in my upcomings blog review of MAGA Mindset.
