Psychoanalytical

“I’m so going to rest during the Thanksgiving break,” I kept announcing while compiling lists of everything I was going to accomplish while on break. “This time, I’m really going to rest.”

“Like I’m ever going to trust your lying ass ever again,” my body said and proceeded to ensure that I did stay in bed doing nothing by making me extremely sick.

I should have just rested of my own free will without pushing the poor body to this extreme.

trajectory

I had to figure everything out about shamanism for myself.  I think a huge key of it is that in my original culture I did not have the cultural conditioning to have an ego.  When people are ego-centred, they are a bit dead, and in an ego-centred culture, most people are not as spiritually well or spiritually alive as they would like to be.  So I was fresh meat for these kinds of vampires all my adult life.  I even tried to adjust to their ego-centred culture, but I coudln't quite believe in it, so went back to my original roots, only more deeply.

By the way, what I meant by fascism is a mental state — a lower, middle-class, small change counting mentality. If people are complaining resentfully about not having a holiday they need to organise by joining their unions, so that they can obtain holidays for themselves. If they don’t do this, they will fall into a mode of passivity that leads to psychological fascism – the blinded hostility toward those who have more or think differently.

QUESTION: "How Do You Become A Shaman?"

A mathematic proposition regarding guilt and pain

Nietzsche's writing on this can and ought to be taken as a mathematical proposition or more precisely one related to physics.  What I am saying is he is making a dry statement and forces and counter-forces.  He is not even being all that flamboyant in the direct sense, although his use of language gives another impression.  (That secondary level of meaning is like his mask, his skin.) At the primary level, however, it is a simply mathematical equation.  The more you go against the line of conformity -- which is a psychological line set in your head -- the more you will invite a sensation of guilt and pain.  It's no more complicated or more simple than this.  Have a look at my video on superego shamanism.  Both Nietzsche and Bataille were into this.  We don't have to use Freudian terms, as they can be misleading, but most people are more familiar with Freud than with mathematical dynamic Nietzsche is outlining -- so we can refere to "superego shamanism" Superego guards against one's breaking from conformity.  But conformity is mindless.  That is the nature of it.  When one infringes against superego by doing something that is not in accordance with mindless conformity (i.e when one invokes the counter-force against it), the automatic reaction is to experience guilt and pain.  When one infringes against internalised social and cultural expectations, one can expect a loading of guilt and pain -- especially in the early stages of breaking free from them, since one is not yet used to thinking and being for oneself, not on behalf of the herd.

The Death of Welfare | Clarissa's Blog: "I believe the harsher people are treated, the more they turn to fascism. Give people enough of what they need, and they won’t care about seeking out the “Jews” (literally or figuratively) in their midst. Punish them, torment them and take away some of their essential services and they will start bleeting for the mposition of a stricter, harsher regime and for the purification of their culture."

Update on Ukraine: Biden ‘ s Visit | Clarissa's Blog: "haha!

I’ve had Westerners treat me like that too–and to be plain, the assistance I was asking from them was very little indeed, just by way of moral support and if someone could please speak to my father and get him to stop acting out his psychological problems.
I was addressed with the most extreme baby talk and told “by the way, other people have different views on the topic” — as if what I had been presenting was a theoretical proposition or a request for others to accept my views.
Western culture is so fucking immature.
