The Half-Life Combine Empire

Half-Life_2_cover4,003 words

In the popular video game Half-Life 2 and its sequels, the players fight against the Combine Empire. This empire may be fictional, but it has many aspects that are all too real. The universe of Half-Life 2 has been created with patience and a lot of work, as one can guess from the number of tryouts for designing one of the game’s most important buildings. The result is a very well-thought, sometimes subtle universe that goes often unseen because players are more concerned with solving a particular riddle or fighting a particular battle. Read more …

Abir Taha
Nietzsche’s Coming God or the Redemption of the Divine
London: Arktos, 2013

Abir Taha, a Lebanese woman described as a “career diplomat,” and who has a philosophy degree from the Sorbonne, has written an interesting book, Nietzsche’s Coming God or the Redemption of the Divine. As the author of the polemic essay on “The Overman High Culture,” I thought a careful reading of Taha’s book would be useful. Read more …

Goethe’s Prometheus

1,384 words

Gustave Moreau, Prometheus

Gustave Moreau, Prometheus

Prometheus is, probably, one of the most enduring characters in universal mythology and, in addition, one of the most frequent subjects of artistic, literary, or philosophical interpretation. Aeschylus’ version, Prometheus Bound, has generated different symbolic interpretations across the centuries. Starting with the Renaissance, Prometheus has been seen as a symbol of consciousness struggling against arbitrary power.[1]

This was captured in essence by Goethe, circa 1771, who presented the image of the Promethean Man who, decades later, Friedrich Nietzsche would write about in his Birth of Tragedy. Read more …

“The Wild Boys Smile”:
Reflections on Olaf Stapledon’s Odd John, Part 2

William S. Burroughs with the hint of a smile

5,047 words

Part 2 of 3 (part 1 here)

Alan Watts’ notion of “fascinating ugliness” leads us to another important theme is the disquieting or even repulsive “beauty” of John and his kind. Here is Jacqueline:

But though passably ‘human,’ according to the standards of Homo sapiens, she was strange. Were I an imaginative writer, and not merely a journalist, I might be able to suggest symbolically something of the almost “creepy” effect she had on me, something of its remote and sleepy power. Read more …
