Why Porn Makes You Pathetic

1,549 words

Imagine a world where people live so devoid of happiness that it becomes a popular pastime to compensate by simply watching recordings of people smiling. The need is so severe that when making these recordings, no one even bothers to build in a plot—they just get right to the action of depicting images of people smiling, utterly devoid of any further context or deeper meaning.

Transhumanism — The Final Showdown

The West, in its essence, is neither a human nor a natural society. The current debate – is gender real? – is not directed at finding truth but is instead a program of action – “we will make it so that there is no such thing as gender.” Masculinity and femininity, their polarity, will be abolished.

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 …

Giorgio de Chirico, “Les Masques”

3,924 words

English original here

Z tempa technologického pokroku se nám může snadno zatočit hlava a navykli jsme si očekávat nekonečný proud rychlejších a výkonnějších zařízení. Budoucí vývoj takových technologií slibuje stále sofistikovanější stroje, které zpochybní základní premisu lidské nadřazenosti. Je vynakládáno velké úsilí na dosažení dystopické budoucnosti strojů, nadaných úžasnými schopnostmi, jejichž samotná existence možná způsobí nahrazení lidstva.  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 …

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 …

Purpose in Life

purpose3,271 words

What the lack of any national purpose is doing to America as a nation is painfully evident to everyone willing to see. It may be less evident, however, what the lack of a meaningful purpose in life is doing to millions of the best men and women of our race as individuals. That is because most of these believe, mistakenly, that they do have purpose in their lives.

Nous sommes à un point crucial dans le temps : un moment de transition aussi important que l’émergence de l’homo sapiens, ou le commencement de la civilisation après la révolution néolithique.

Vers le milieu du XIXe siècle, mais dès lors d’une manière toujours plus pressante – à cause de l’accélération de l’histoire –, l’homme commença à comprendre qu’il devait interagir dans un environnement radicalement nouveau. Read more …

Youth Without Youth

youth-without-youth2,179 words

Youth Without Youth (2007) is Francis Ford Coppola’s stunning film adaptation of a novella of the same name by Mircea Eliade (1907–1986), the Romanian scholar of comparative religion and Iron Guard sympathizer. I highly recommend this beautiful, mysterious, endlessly captivating movie. In style, it is classic; in substance, it is eternal.

The Overcoming of the Superman

1,996 words

Translated by Bruno Cariou

The facility with which ideas lacking any real consistency sometimes acquire an evocative force, to the point of becoming a sort of alibi for the passions, is amazing: those who have held them to be true, experience them as such so vividly that they end up believing they have found confirmations of them in their own deepest experiences.
