What Now? / Dark Enlightenment: Nobody is Anybody

I foresee abrupt changes, so I am trying to get  our ducks in order, so to speak; that is, I am arranging things in case I have to pick up from where I left off ... leaving clues to myself about the direction I am moving in:  ‘Professor Nobody’s Little Lectures on Thomas Ligotti’s Supernatural Fiction’

Another problem: isn’t the academic essay a quintessentially philosophical format, premised on reason and argument, yet here is a writer that seeks to conjure that which is unphilosophizable, in fictions that mock every system of modern thought as a veil of delusion?


Ligotti’s pessimism is meant to be corrosive: to invite you to give up, and instead fall into infinite resignation.

In the UK, the death toll from "Covid vaccines" already clearly outnumbers those killed by Covid. This information has been leaked "unintentionally" by the authorities, who admit that only 3,000 people died from Covid without having previous illnesses, while, as of August 2021, 30,305 people have already died in the first three weeks after to receive the puncture. Another 123,796 Britons have died more than three weeks after receiving the puncture, but it cannot be assured that it was as a result.

I read long ago that the patriots needed a "divine sign" to intervene; as if, to bring about a change of era like the one that supposes the expulsion of the satanists from the power on Planet Earth, they needed a supernatural signal that would confirm that THIS / THIS is THE moment. Well, after the volcano on the island of La Palma (Spain) erupted, now the Sicilian Etna goes and joins the party. Will it be enough or will another be needed?

It seems that it is confirmed that the President of Croatia is the first in the world who decides to return to normality and stop the vaccination campaign. According to the translation that has come down to us, the Croatian president believes that vaccination has not met the goal of ending Covid, which is why he has urged to live with this disease, as with many others.

The very latest information from The Storm Rider revolves around the control of DARPA, the Pentagon's advanced technology agency, which, as this commentator well recalls, was the creator of the Internet and, as a new contribution, says that it continues to control the Network of networks and the banks, drug companies and Wall Street, through you. Ultimately, it seems to mean that now that the bad guys are rumored to shut down the internet to prevent the outcome of the Arizona audit and the Durham report from being known, the Patriots are going to take control of DARPA, and with it, from Internet.

He also recommends paying attention to the markets in China, due to the imminent collapse of the Evergrande company (owner of a hundred banks) and claims that many celebrities are going to feel liberated and are going to start talking (like Nicky Minaj); a servant understands that the reason for this fact must be that its controllers are no longer in this world. The end game now comes.

Justice Department Announces Largest Health Care Fraud Settlement in Its History
Pfizer to Pay $2.3 Billion for Fraudulent Marketing
Home » Office of Public Affairs » News
Wednesday, September 2, 2009

WASHINGTON – American pharmaceutical giant Pfizer Inc. and its subsidiary Pharmacia & Upjohn Company Inc. (hereinafter together "Pfizer") have agreed to pay $2.3 billion, the largest health care fraud settlement in the history of the Department of Justice, to resolve criminal and civil liability arising from the illegal promotion of certain pharmaceutical products, the Justice Department announced today.

Pharmacia & Upjohn Company has agreed to plead guilty to a felony violation of the Food, Drug and Cosmetic Act for misbranding Bextra with the intent to defraud or mislead. Bextra is an anti-inflammatory drug that Pfizer pulled from the market in 2005. Under the provisions of the Food, Drug and Cosmetic Act, a company must specify the intended uses of a product in its new drug application to FDA. Once approved, the drug may not be marketed or promoted for so-called "off-label" uses – i.e., any use not specified in an application and approved by FDA.

Pfizer promoted the sale of Bextra for several uses and dosages that the FDA specifically declined to approve due to safety concerns. The company will pay a criminal fine of $1.195 billion, the largest criminal fine ever imposed in the United States for any matter. Pharmacia & Upjohn will also forfeit $105 million, for a total criminal resolution of $1.3 billion.

Why Bother? / Specialists in Perplexity
« Last post by Creepy Sleepy on September 21, 2021, 11:07:41 am »
It has been quite some time since this question was put forward by Holden.   I have resisted the compulsion to simply agree with Schopenhauer, and I had done some research to discover what my own deep thinking Animal Being REALLY thought.

Look, I am still searching:  I found Schopenhauer's Deconstruction of German Idealism as well as the dissertation, Schopenhauer and Kant's Transcendental Idealism.

I can list some threads showing this trail.  This may even help me "return upon myself," thereby helping me to disentangle myself from the dramatic confusions that have been draining my mental powers.

I, myself, wish to go over several threads before coming to any permanent decisions about my position.  You will see that this old (former) student has remained UNDECIDED and is quite content to rest in confusion.   

We have the following:

1.  Existential Phenomenology

Quote
I think John Wild's work is worth investigating even though he totally ignores Schopenhauer (as though Schopenhauer had never existed).  I am sure this is because Wild was opposed to "idealism" and wanted to embark upon what might be called a radically empirical approach to a phenomenology of existence.  He seems to have wanted to take a different route than Husserl's Transcendental Phenomenology.

What I like about Wild is his animosity toward Analytical Philosophy, the kind which seems to think it is the only game in town in Anglo-American academia.  I also think he is worthy of our attention since he saw American and English academic philosophy as being bankrupt because of the focus on analytic philosophy and not enough attention paid to existentialism and incorporating phenomenological methods into the day to day existence of the living in the life-world, or Lebenswelt.

2. The Nightwatches of Bonaventura

3. Transcendental Speculation on Apparent Design in the Fate of the Individual

4. The Books of Nonsense :: Specialists in Perplexity

Quote
Even though Ligotti has many praises for Schopenhauer, acknowledging that his two-volumed (1819 and 1844) The World as Will and Representation lays out “one of the most absorbingly intricate metaphysical systems ever contrived,” he does seem to warn us that ” … a quasi-mystical elaboration of a ‘Will-to-live’ as the hypostasis of reality, a mindless and uniting master of all being, a directionless force that makes everything do what it does …” proves to be nothing more than another intellectual labyrinth for specialists in perplexity.

Zapffe’s principles, by contrast, are non-technical, shunning theories and focusing more on the brute facts of our LIVED EXPERIENCE. Emile Cioran also rejects the compulsion to systematize thought, choosing, instead, to break thought down to what can be whispered into the ear of a dying man, or spoken loudly to a drunkard.

This is the direction I seem to be moving in:  anti-novel, anti-system ----> Brute Fact

Quote
A brute fact is a fact that has no explanation.  More narrowly, brute facts may instead be defined as those facts which cannot be explained (as opposed to simply having no explanation).   To reject the existence of brute facts is to think that everything can be explained. ("Everything can be explained" is sometimes called the principle of sufficient reason).

I would be rejecting the Principle of Sufficient Reason, and thereby joining the ranks of those who I criticized for not remaining loyal to the great teacher of mankind from Berlin.  I would continue to stand in awe of Schopenhauer's system and its likeness in spirit to the Upanishads, but in my heart of hearts I would disintegrate into pure lived experience, transforming from a student of mathematics into a philosophical madman poet.  Maybe rational trigonometry would ground me.

Once Schopenhauer had drafted his mythology that “everything in the universe is energized by a Will-to-live,” he shifted away from brain-twisting perplexity to the far more easily understood variety of pessimism we encounter today, i.e., “Life sucks.”
What is the ultimate aim of all this striving? I’m hungry so I eat, yes, that is why I eat, because I am hungry, but what is the ultimate aim? Existence is a state of demonic mania, with the WILL-TO-LIVE as the POSSESSING SPIRIT of tormented individual creatures.
(Ligotti 2011)

5.  horror - Collapse IV: Philosophical R&D   (a little off the wall)

6.  The Cave is Empty :: Philosophy, Madness, and Horror

I think that Schopenhauer himself may have become less systematic, less rigid, with his popular essays, where he sounds like the Grandfather of phenomenology, Great Grandfather of existentialism itself.  From Parerga and Paralipomena:

Quote from: Arthur Schopenhauer
To have original, extraordinary, perhaps even immortal ideas, one need only isolate oneself from the world for a few minutes so completely that the most commonplace happenings appear to be new and unfamiliar, and in this way reveal their true essence.

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-Cub_Fvyalg

In a thread about the possible existence or Idea of a Creator God, I had stated, "I do not agree that it is unfortunate that this is a tiny forum.  Less is more, as far as I'm concerned.  Whenever I browse ligotti.net, there is just too much.  I lose interest quickly.  I am no longer interested in huge philosophical discussions or competitive arguments."

Presently, I might say that I would rather learn rational trigonometry to see if there is a better way to teach high school mathematics than debate about Schopenhauer's Transcendental Idealism.  (I don't like bickering.)

With that said, here we go again!

Holden,

Thank you for your response. I hope you get a little peace at night specially.

According to https://www.vacunate.gov.py/index-listado-vacunados.html 2,543,590 people took the vaccine.

The authorities will do everything and anything to inject the vaccines into people´s bodies. That is the reason the government imposed the lockdowns, closed the borders, ruined people´s jobs and paused all kinds of medical consults, etc. Their aim is to vaccinate 4,900,000 people.

In the Paraguayan Supreme Court of Justice no lawyer can do his/her paperwork if he/she does not provide the vaccination card. Although it is illegal many companies force their employees to take the vaccines or they will be fired from their jobs. Two weeks ago I heard that between teachers and employees,10,000 people, in the Ministry of Education did not take the vaccine so these teachers, specially, will not be allowed into the classes.

Next month we have elections for mayoral candidates in the country and some gatherings are with maskless people. I am sure when the election is over they will come back with their variants.

Here too sugary drinks and fat-laden food have been all around for years. Years ago I drank these sugary drinks and ate lots of fat. Now I am paying the consequences.

Stay vigilant.

Holden,

I believe that you were on to something here when you started the thread back in 2016; and I can see how I might have gone on a tangent, maybe not knowing how to proceed. 

In resurrecting this line of inquiry, I wish to quote from the Stanford Encyclopedia of Philosophy:

An alternative title for Schopenhauer’s main book, The World as Will and Representation, might well have been, The World as Reality and Appearance. Similarly, his book might have been entitled, The Inner and Outer Nature of Reality.

Has anyone taken a look at the English translation, The Nightwatches of Bonaventura ?  It was written in 1804, when the Buddha of Berlin would have been around 16 years old, right about the time that he came to the conclusion that this world must be the handiwork of some blind demon. 

The Nightwatches portrays a position opposed to the transcendental idealism that characterized the philosophical basis of the "European Romantic Movement".

The other very interesting paper which might help us is SCHOPENHAUER AND HUSSERL: CRITIQUING THE 20TH CENTURY PHENOMENOLOGICAL TRADITION

Quote
As Ted Humphrey points out in his essay “Schopenhauer and the Cartesian Tradition,” Schopenhauer is not the deviant metaphysical and epistemological figure he often is cut out to be. Rather, “because Schopenhauer follows the tendency in Hobbes and Hume to attribute predominance to the will and passions over reason in human nature, he tends to offend the more Cartesian and Kantian tendencies of our present age.”

Many wonder why Christmas is referred to in September?

It is because of the true date of Jesus' birth.

Many analyses have been made of the gospel and historical records, discovering that the one who established December 25 as the traditional date that reached our time was Emperor Constantine, but it was not the real date....

The real date was, according to the records, September 11...

September 11th (that's why the cabal chose that date to topple the towers and for other events in previous years, as a way to mock)

Why Think? / Hipparchia
« Last post by Creepy Sleepy on September 20, 2021, 10:56:11 pm »
Hipparchia is notable for being one of the few women philosophers of Ancient Greece.  Drawn to the doctrines and the self-imposed hardships of the Cynic lifestyle, Hipparchia lived in poverty with her husband, Crates the Cynic. While no existing writings are directly attributed to Hipparchia, recorded anecdotal accounts emphasize both her direct, Cynic rhetoric and her nonconformity to traditional gendered roles. Entering into marriage is a traditional social role that Cynics would normally reject; yet with her marriage to Crates, Hipparchia raised  Greek cultural expectations regarding the role of women in marriage, as well as the Cynic doctrine itself.
