Something vs. Nothing

26 February 2013, 16:00

If I had (at gunpoint or whatever) to subscribe to any ism it'll have to be egoism. If the word egoism leaves you thinking of Rand or Epicurus you're on the wrong track – not selfishness essentially, rather selfness.

I do what I want, when I want, for as long as I want – will and power comes from me. I do not promote egoism; I simply concern myself with actualising my will. Whether the bewildered (Atheists & Creationists) think 'correctly', to my mind, is inconsequential – unless what they think will help actualise my will.

I am will.

I am perspective.

I am nothing.

God - Not possible, 'some say' the word is nonsense, I tend to agree. And if he/she/it (or whatever) exists I hope admiration isn't expected. Fear? Maybe… the sort of fear that one would feel taking a slash at Oscar's house… but definitely not sanctity.

Atheism - Converting Christians/Muslims etc. is dangerous, you'll just be left with a humanist – trust me, you don’t want that – I like the religious, only because I don't like humanists. Remember what Rudolf Stirner said – "our Atheists are pious people" – as true today as it was back then. The religious: Don’t kill (unless sanctioned by the Church); Atheist: Don’t kill (unless sanctioned by the State). The same destination, deferent route… Both reject the self – I reject membership.

Evolution - We are all apes, right? Composed of molecules and all that, right? Ok… then what? None of this troubles me, ever! How does having ape ancestry help me achieve what I want in the immediate future? Being able to prove it, without referring to the 'Origin of Species' won't even get you laid – LAME!

Ideology - The fool fills his head with religion. This, naturally, includes our self-righteous friends the Atheists - constantly mouthing off about freedom, morality and humanity. Defend with reason that which you hold sacred – much like clerics, so too will Atheists lose ground – their reason is everything but watertight. Their oh so precious morality – what is it if not an essential without an end? Desecrated Ontology? Grammatical error? Hmmm…

I am will.

I am perspective.

I am nothing.

Mouth watering rugby ahead.

I must agree that England's demise was mostly due to a horrible pool and surely as hosts they should have had an easier path to the quarter finals. Read more...

Strategic Disruption

There is, for some reason, an attraction to falling in line, following the rules, and playing this business game by the books. If you want to be an agent for change within the company, and let them know that you are not just a minion, be disruptive. Read more...

Cognitive Dissonance in South Afr...

I have been hearing a lot about "Cognitive Dissonance" lately and I had experienced it talking to certain individuals within a certain party. I had to read more about it. I came across a quotation that says, "Any fool can despise what he cannot understand or comprehend." Read more...
