Introduction to Vedanta, Part III
The Katha Upanishad, Continued

Lord Yama instructs Nachiketa, as related in the Katha Upanishad.

4,644 words

Part I here, Part II here, Part IV here

In the last installment of this series, we saw that the Katha Upanishad tells the story of Nachiketa, a boy who is tutored by Yama, the god of death. The boy makes a request of Yama, which at first the god does not want to grant: “When a person dies, there arises this doubt: ‘he still exists,’ say some, ‘he does not’ say others. I want you to teach me the truth.” But Yama soon realizes that Nachiketa is a worthy student, and begins to teach. Read more …

The Aryan Ethos:
Loyalty to One’s Own Nature

2,384 words

Today, more than ever, one must understand that social problems, in their essence, are rooted in problems of ethics and world-view. Anyone who thinks that social problems can be solved through purely technical means, is like a doctor who only wants to treat the patent symptoms of a disease, rather than examining and treating its deep causes.

Unbreakable

1,903 words

Unbreakable (2000) is many people’s least favorite M. Night Shyamalan film, but I think it is his best: brilliantly conceived and scripted, beautifully acted and filmed, and quite moving. Since the film is almost two decades old, I trust nobody will complain about spoilers.

Unbreakable is a superhero film, but it does not contain any computer animation, strobe-fast editing, or deafening crashes and booms. Read more …

bunnies_eating_marijuanaEditor’s Note:

April 20th (420) is celebrated by two groups whose ethos — self-indulgence in one case, sublimity and self-sacrifice in the other — could not be more fundamentally opposed: potheads (“420” being a code for marijuana) and Hitlerites (April 20th being Hitler’s birthday). I am reprinting this article alongside our normal Hitler commemoration hoping to lure in a few potheads and expose them to a more wholesome alternative.  Read more …

Ελευθερία, Αιτιοκρατία και Πεπρωμένο

eleu8eriboulisi1,352 words

English original here

Μετάφραση/απόδοση, για το Ιδεάπολις, του Νίκου Καρατουλιώτη

Ελεύθερη βούληση σημαίνει ότι έχεις να διαλέξεις μεταξύ πραγματικών επιλογών. Δεν έχει σημασία τι επιλογή θα κάνει κάποιος, ο καθένας μπορεί να επιλέξει διαφορετικά. Αιτιοκρατία (ντετερμινισμός) σημαίνει ότι δεν έχουμε πραγματικές επιλογές. Όταν κάποιος επιλέξει, δεν θα μπορούσε να έχει επιλέξει αλλιώς.  Read more …

Isis como Agathe Tyche y Osiris como Agathos Daimon en forma de serpiente

1,382 words

English original here

Tener libre albedrio significa tener verdaderas opciones de las cuales elegir. No importa que opción uno pueda elegir, uno pudo haber elegido de forma diferente. El determino significa que no tenemos dos opciones reales. Cuando uno elegí, uno no podría haber elegido de forma diferente.

Incluso si uno tiene libre albedrio, no todas las decisiones son libres. Read more …

Translations: GreekSpanish

Having free will means having real options to choose from. No matter what option one may choose, one could have chosen otherwise. Determinism means that we do not have real options. When one chooses, one could not have chosen otherwise.

Even if one has free will, not every choice is free. Read more …

Ludzie, odłóżcie bongosy i posłuchajcie mnie przez chwilę. Chcę wam wyjaśnić, czemu uważam marihuanę za jedną z najbardziej zdradzieckich – z perspektywy długoterminowej samoaktualizacji – znanych człowiekowi substancji.

Dejen sus bongs de lado y escúchenme por unos minutos. Quiero explicar porque creo que la marihuana es una de las más insidiosas substancias conocidas al hombre desde el punto de vista de la auto-realización a largo plazo.

Más confesiones de un “transfóbico”

Henry Fuseli, Tiresias le dice el futuro a Odiseo, 1780-1785

Henry Fuseli, Tiresias le dice el futuro a Odiseo, 1780-1785

1,965 words

English original here

Drama, auto-mutilación, y suicidio son normales para la trayectoria con los transexuales, así que la muerte de la chica-trans en potencia Joshua “Leelah” Alcorn, que se tiró delante de un camión, es menos historia que las subsecuentes reacciones de la Izquierda, que han tomado el desafío de cambiar la sociedad para que nadie como él vuelva a derramar otra lágrima-emo.

Further Confessions of a “Transphobic”

Henry Fuseli, Teiresias Foretells the Future to Odysseus, 1780-1785

1,884 words

Spanish translation here

Drama, self-mutilation, and suicide are par for the course with transsexuals, so the recent death of would-be transgirl Joshua “Leelah” Alcorn, who threw himself in front of a semi truck, is less of a news story than the subsequent reactions of the Left, who have taken up his challenge to change society so nobody like him will ever shed another emo-tear.
