Title: Starve the Beast
Post by: Gorticide :: Admin Elder Warrior Nuclear-Bum on January 24, 2020, 12:28:29 pm
The Enemy has got inside of me
It takes advantage of my Ego -
My Wants and Needs
It knows the Lizard Brain Cravings
My Shadow Psychology

That's why I know
It's my Destiny to starve the Beast,
To resist modern debt slavery
Limit my wants while struggling
For basic necessities

Like a bunch of Baby Spinach
And half a pound of Beef?
English Muffins and cheese?
Onions, garlic, Virgin Olive Oil

Just another monster Me.

The Monster Me

My best friend is a Beast
I call this Monster "Me"

It has been discussing its projects
and the world is not interested

This project - or symbiotic assortment of projects
resists being packaged and commodified.
There is no niche in the formal academic world
in which to promote and experiment with the methods used.

All politics is local politics.
What is what?  Who is who?
Who made who?

While the world is offering consulatations,
opportunities for collaboration,
some of us peck away on huge thankless projects
aiming to become an obscure series of educational texts

all about the math and the programming

Without the politics of scope, licenses, and copyrights,
to be published and proliferated post-mortem,
or, if I live long enough, presented for Free Access
to the World, from Monster Me.

Suppose the mind is embodied.  Then, when a bee stings my face or bum, the bee stings me.

From this bee-sting perspective, I am this animal body.

Am I kind or mean?   It really depends on when my last meal was.

Life must be wired for evil.  I did not want to eat today, nor did I want to do any math, programming, or writing.   So, I escaped into a 3PM nap.   I woke up going right for the beef.   This Thing that is my Embodied Mind, this Animal Creature/Being, becomes quite serious in such moments, and, as difficult as it is to imagine, might be perceived by my consciousness as a kind of Monster or monstrosity or abominable creature, a tormented creature - tormented by its own appetite, more specifically, horrified by its lack of conscious control over the appetite of this Animal Body.

The Natives of this continent (on which the government of the United States of Americs has been "constructed") would refer to "the-spirit-that-moves-through-all-things" --- Some raised as Christians, Muslims, or Jews might mistakenly take this spirit-that-moves-through-all-things, including Christians, Muslims,a nd Jews, as "God" or "Nature" ...

Is it possible that all notions of Devil (in the Abrahamic Triad [Judaism, Christianity, Islam]) really speak about the non-human forces which virtually dictate our behaviors, our need to eat food, etc?

There is something so very unpleasant about this apparent trap we are born into.

Maybe the Natives were more duped by Nature in that they see this Creation as sacred.  They call it a Sacred Hoop.

There was a time when I thought the Native Ways of seeing the world were closer to the truth, and yet now I find myself coming to conclusions which are contradicting that view.    It is more likely that all organic life is fundamentally and inescapably evil.  Thank you, Thomas Ligotti!

We are all, deep down inside, evil scumbags, including, but not limited to even the most devout and pious Christians, Muslims, and Jews.    Even the Sacred Native Tribes consist of human creatures who are, deep down inside, as fundamentally and inescapably evil as their always polite, but never honest, enemies who have desecrated their Holy Lands from Argentina to Canada.

From a thread at Quora, I believe nature is evil. Am I right? (

Quote from: Marek Jagódka
Depends what you consider evil. Some say that nature is not evil because it has no ability to comprehend morality. On the other hand nature brings death and destruction to humans in many forms like natural disasters. Because of that one could consider nature as evil. I personally don’t believe that there’s a need for intent to be evil. So yes I guess I agree with you. Natural law dictates that we are born to die and be eaten and that is something I consider evil. I also love the people who speak about “not respecting nature” and “evil humans” as if nature ever cared if someone respects it or not. It’s a system that states you must die to feed it one way or the other. Respecting that fate speaks volumes of how pathethic those people must be.

How pathetic ... and pitiable.

Quote from: Duffy
Nature treats everyone the same. You respect her and you survive. She expects you to work at surviving. She doesn't cut anyone any slack. Complaining, crying and whining doesn't change her standard — Survival of the fittest. She doesn't care about “The Patriarchy.” You cannot hurt her “feelings.” With her “it is what it is…no more, no less.”

Remember this…it's all about “The circle of life…until your Pomeranian gets eaten by coyotes.”Evil…no. Demanding your respect…yes.

Respect or fear?  Must we love Big Brother and Big Mother?  Even when fear is the core motivation for that thar' luv?

I'm sorry for posting this here even though I have an account on Quora.  I do not wish to lash out there in fear of getting banned or something.  I use it normally for technical questions.   I do not have much patience even when overhearing my sister and mother discussing "God's Plan."

I really do have some kind of serious chip on my shoulder against the Big Lies people feel so righteous and sanctimonious about, whether they call it "God" or "Nature."

Quote from: Seer
I believe there must have been recent situations in your life that had not pleased you, hence your belief.

I understand where you are coming from. When things don’t go our way we do harvest feelings of unfairness against nature.

I think instead of figuring out whether nature is truly evil or virtuous, work on accepting it the way it is. There is no point fighting Nature because you can not control it, whether happily or with sorrow, you have to accept it.

Raul and Holden, do you think it is worth my trouble to respond, "No, We do not have to accept it.   If we are free to do anyhting, I would think it would be to honestly despize the Creation (and Being at the mercy of BEING)!

At the end of the day, I do not trust people at Quora to be honest close-to-the-bone the way we are here.

I have no false expectations when it comes to honest conversations.   Being honest leaves me wide open to be lied to.  Very frustrating.    :-\
