Holden,

Thank you for your words and the video.

I forgot to suggest The Dedalus Book of Literary Suicides by Gary Lachman, from libgen also.

You think too much and too deeply. That´s bad. Really bad. Ignorance is better.

As I told you my ailments will go away when I leave this Earth and turn ashes.
If money,status, fame and power makes most people arrogant, disease and death will show them, that they are nothing on this Earth.

That´s the problem. Most people will never recognize the world for what it is. You expect too much.

I could have been also a sociopath or a psychopath. I am part of this filthy planet as you call it. I may not be a murderer but I am not a peaceful dove. I could also torture, maim and kill.

Do the doctors not tell us that inside our bodies we have viruses that activate in certain circumstances? I read somewhere that geneticians say that in our genome genes only express themselves when the environment causes them.

We are vampires like Dracula. That is the reason vampires avoid the sun. We are barbaric angels.

Capitalism, nazism,fascism, all these labels, are also vampiric. After all they feed off of people.
We proudly call ourselves human and yet we turn a blind eye to our inhumanity. Indeed we are a very diabolical species.

Did well-meaning people not take part in mass murders and theft and then go back to their normal lives?

I often read these alternative bloggers that say that Pope Francis is the Antichrist? Wrong. Each one of us is the Antichrist.

Again that is the way we have been designed. Cruelty, programmed brutality and horror are inside us. Do the history books not teach us about ethnic cleansing, crimes against humanity, genocides, programmed famines,mass rapes, massive murders? I did not do the military service here but the compulsory military service is also part of planned murder and social control.

Directly or indirecty we are part of the machinery of death.

Stay well.

To Don Raul( From Castle Dracula)

Don Raul,

Thanks for your message. While I am quite certain there is no benevolent entity like God in existence, when it comes to malevolent ones, it might be better to have an open mind.
This world is plainly a torture chamber. I wish there were no physical pain,nor mental anguish. Unfortunately these are very common.

To find out whether this message board and people who write here are rare or not, I just need to open my window and look outside for a minute or two.
Who was the man trapped by Dracula in his castle close to the forest? If I member correctly it was Jonathan Harker.
Well,I am very much like Harker. There is one significant difference though-unlike him, I do not think I would ever escape this prison.

I wonder if you have ever heard of  the ghost of Catalina Lercaro. Once when I was a kid, some of my relatives took me with them to visit a rather famous and quite big temple, on our way to that place, I came across a pond which was within a huge ruin, the water was green, and was surrounded by stairs on all side. All in all a very depressing sight. I think ,even as a kid, I wondered how many men might have spent their sad lives in the vicinity and how many of them did away with themselves.

If I were given two choices-either spend the rest of your life interacting with people from time to time or spend the whole of the rest of your life wrestling with the most difficult mathematical problem in existence, I would glady choose the latter in a jiffy.

Mathematics, once one gets the hang of it, is much kinder than most of the human beings I am ever likely to encounter in my life.

I have bought a cheap CPU and have connected it with a monitor. Laptops are a scam because even if one part gets damanged then one cannot use it. However,the system that I have assembled on my own has many parts-CPU,monitor, cables, keyboard,mouse et cetra,now when one of them breaks down, I can just replace that part and I would be good to go. It is far cheaper than any laptop avaiblable in the market.

I hope you manage to see a doctor and get the necessary medicines and treatment as regards your malaise.

Take care.

From Candide:
Pangloss made answer in these terms: "Oh, my dear Candide, you remember Paquette, that pretty wench who waited on our noble Baroness; in her arms I tasted the delights of paradise, which produced in me those hell torments with which you see me devoured; she was infected with them, she is perhaps dead of them. This present Paquette received of a learned Grey Friar, who had traced it to its source; he had had it of an old countess, who had received it from a cavalry captain, who owed it to a marchioness, who took it from a page, who had received it from a Jesuit, who when a novice had it in a direct line from one of the companions of Christopher Columbus.For my part I shall give it to nobody, I am dying."

Holden,

Thank you for the articles and the video on the execution of Queen Mary of the Scots and the quote from Candide.

It reminded me a movie I saw many years ago about  Sophie Scholl and his brother, Hans and others who were decapitated with guillotine by judicial executioner Johann Reichhart in Stadelheim, Munich for acts of treason in 1943 in Nazi Germany. They were members of the White Rose group and their crime was distributing flyers against the Nazi regime. That night, according to Spanish author, José Antonio Marina, there was a huge rally supporting the executions and praising the janitor who denounced the Scholls.

Years ago I heard that there were women who gave birth to children for sterile couples. Well, in India it is a millionaire industry. Business is business.

Jorge Britez, the Paraguayan deputy in the Congress is well known for his position against the pandemic. Last year he proposed to legalize theft as a joke because the government was putting to many restrictions on the businesses. But I did not know he was famous internationally. Some reporters in the Paraguayan news media want him out of the Congress.

Yes, we are all like Jonathan Harker, inmates of this asylum called Earth.
In the late 1990s I used to listen to David Warner, a U.S. singer, aka Marilyn Manson. He is now facing serious legal issues. One of his known songs was The Beautiful People. I believe his song was referring to those who are in high society.

You are not among the “beautiful people.”

You are an evangelist but an evangelist with a gloomy, bleak, and dark gospel. You preach a gospel for the doomed and damned.

We all wish there were no physical anguish and mental anguish as you say but we were brought into this living ocean of tears where sorrows, pain, anxiety and anguish abound. We, human beings, are diabolical clowns. Our civilized veneer is very thin indeed. Millions speak of love but love has no power over our dark and miserable hearts. We are split creatures.

To be a human beings means being trapped in this prison planet.

Once browsing the Internet I picked up this quote by Ovid, a Roman poet:

I am dragged along by a strange new force. Desire and reason are pulling in different directions. I see the right way and I approve it, but follow the wrong.

We carry in ourselves the burden of life and death.

I hope to see the doctor and get the medications. But there are public hospitals are requesting the vaccination card for surgeries or operations.

Keep studying mathematics and stay well.

For Don Raul:

A fire broke out backstage in a theatre. The clown came out to warn the public; they thought it was a joke and applauded. He repeated it; the acclaim was even greater. I think that's just how the world will come to an end: to general applause from wits who believe it's a joke.

That clip from the war film with Tracks of My Tears had me chuckling and singing.   I've had a strange couple of days.   It might have been bad food eaten, but I was not eating for 2 days straight.   As Holden mentions, it does not take much to expose the human organism as the Worm it is.    Do real worms also pray, "Lord, deliver me from myself !" ?

This live version of the song, performed by Smokey Robinson with Stevie Wonder, has such a calm, cool flow to it.   I am amazed how old Mr. Robinson is able to express such strength in his tender feelings.   He's so together.  Can you see something "child-like" in his eyes?

This one by The Staples lifts my spirits when feeling very despondent:

Hard Boiled( To Don Raul)
« Reply #1001 on: November 22, 2021, 12:40:21 pm »
Don Raul,
Thanks for your message.I could easily spend the rest of my days without having to look at any human being.Have you read any ,what is called “Hard-Boiled Detective fiction”? I am asking you that because I think that is quite close to how life really is.

What I mean is ,there are murders and kidnapping and what not.This world really is the way it is depicted in those books.

But we live in “Woke” times and so all of this has been swept under the carpet. But just by doing that the filth does not disappears. It might remain out of sight but it keeps festering all the time.

The fiction was,generally speaking, more honest back in the day.

I like the night is about thousand times better than the day. It is comparatively quiet and I find the darkness soothing. But then it is only a matter of time before the rotten Sun comes up again to spread more misery.
The Sun is evil.They say if the Sun were to die off, then, our planet would be cold like Neptune and there would be no life, let alone sentient life.

Take care.

It might have been bad food eaten, but I was not eating for 2 days straight.-Herr Hauser

I hope you are being able to eat something now. Maybe some nice fresh fruits like grapes,if you like them.
Yes,human body is quite frail and the slightest thing can throw it out of gear. Hunger and lust are the two sides of the same worthless coin and yet that is the currency of the land of the living and one is required to carry the coin to draw the breath.

It must be quite cold at your place.Winter ,generally, makes me quite depressed. They say an animal has two responses to offer when it gets face to face with a predator-fight or flee. I,generally,try to avoid getting into fights and so, the only response left at my disposal is to flee from the predators. Or ,what is I think just a variant of that, to hide from them.

At any rate,try to have something nourishing.

Take care.

Holden,

Thank you for the quotes and the links. I hope your neighbor is leaving you in peace.
Being born on this Earth is like being born in a coffin.

Up to now I have not read Hard-boiled detective fiction. I am a very ignorant person.

The reality overcomes fiction. Murders, kidnappings, famines, wars, pandemic, and even your neighbor or your colleague could stab you just for nothing. Millions of people just kill as they drink a can of beer.

As you say we live in “Woke” times and so all of this has been swept under the carpet. But the filth will not disappear because the filth is inside each one of us.

The nights are about thousand times better than the days. They are quieter.

From the point of view of the Cathars “Any hell that existed was here on this material earth. To confound the Bad God it was necessary to abstain from all earthly temptations and to strengthen the inner spirit by prayer. It was a persuasive argument and it seemed to provide a rational explanation for all the misfortunes of the world.”

I read a sort of biography of Dostoevsky. Just minutes before his execution he said that “It’s not possible that we’ll be executed”, then Tsar Nicholas granted the prisoners a last minute reprieve. Instead of facing a firing squad they would be exiled to Siberia.

After this experience Dostoevsky said that life is everywhere even in a world of death and executioners. He wrote to his brother that “life is a gift, life is happiness.” “I will be reborn for the better,” he wrote. It turned out that the execution was just a display by the Tsar to showcase his power.

Stay safe.

Holden
