Ethics VS Morals

Ethics and Morals relate to "right" and "wrong" conduct. While they are sometimes used interchangeably, they are different. Ethics refers to rules provided by an external source (codes of conduct in the workplace or principles in religions). Morals refer to an individuals own principles regarding right and wrong.

Nihilism: Should We Believe In Nothing?

Hey everyone, I want to continue the talk we had yesterday, but mainly the term 'destructive.' And the best way to expand on destructive things is to explore the philosophical mindset that is nihilism. Nihilism is the belief that all values are baseless and that nothing can be known or communicated. It is often associated with extreme pessimism and radical skepticism that condemns existence. To be a true nihilist, you would believe in nothing, have no loyalties, and no purpose other than, perhaps, an impulse to destroy. Few philosophers in history labeled themselves as nihilists, nihilism is most often associated with Friedrich Nietzsche. Nietzsche argued that the philosophy's corrosive effects would eventually destroy all moral, religious, and metaphysical convictions and trigger the greatest crisis in human history.

"Nihilism" comes from the Latin nihil, or nothing, which means not anything, that which does not exist. It appears in the verb "annihilate,&quo…

What Is The Most Beneficial Emotion? How About The Most Destructive?

For centuries, poets and priests have reflected on the influence of emotion, noting its ability to suddenly take control of thought and behavior. I found a question online today that was quite thought-provoking: "What is the most beneficial emotion? What is the most destructive?" I really enjoy questions that pose a challenge. They're fun to just sit and ponder for a long time, and finding the answer to this one was not easy.

So, let's start with the most destructive. A lot of people would say hate, and greed, but I think everything negative stems from an obvious answer: Fear.
The oldest and strongest emotion of mankind is fear, and the oldest and strongest kind of fear is fear of the unknown. - H.P.Lovecraft.Fear is humanities - and a lot of animals - oldest emotion. It's what kept the cavemen in their caves at night. When we fear something, we act in different ways and most often than not, destructive. We don't understand something, we gain fear. Fear paralyz…

Prometheus Rising And The Eight-Circuit Brain

Hello everyone, welcome to the next step into our journey into higher content creation. Today, I want to discuss Robert Anton Wilson's work: Prometheus Rising." It is, paradoxically, one of Wilson’s least commercially successful books, but its reputation in occult circles is nearly mythic. That is to say, that out of a hundred people who have claimed it changed their lives, maybe ten or so read it, and only a couple of those readers actually went the extra mile to actually try the exercises. Even Wilson found this out when fans would come up to him and express their love for the work, but none of them could name a specific exercise. He later realized to stop asking questions and just accept the compliments when they came to him. Which is really a kind of shame because I think this book really can change your life if you are diligent and stop taking things - especially yourself - too seriously.

At it's core, Prometheus Rising is Wilson's interpretation of another body …

New Possible Blog Layout

Alright, I'll be honest with you; I need money. I'm a poor guy in his early 20's who is tired of the normal concept of jobs (9-5, Monday-Friday). I know it sounds lazy, but I enjoy creating things and working for myself. When I work a "normal" or "traditional" job I'm working for someone else. I'm on their time. I can't get anything I want to get done until I get what they want done first. That doesn't sit right with me. But until I can make a living creating I have to be on other people's time.

Luckily, I found a job where I can write every single day. I'm not writing content that I'd love to write about, but at least it pays; not much pay, but pay nonetheless. It's not enough money, so I need to roll up my sleeves and really get to working on other ways to make money. This blog has been extremely helpful for me and my writing. It's kept me on a strict schedule - even it there are times when I just write a quick post…

Why Anime is So Good To Watch

Happy Monday everyone! Let's get this week started with something that I've had defend for a while now. Anime: Why do I watch it? Why do people love it so much? What's so significant about it? Well, I love anime and everything that comes with it - mainly, a general knowledge and insight on Japanese culture. But, a lot of people tear down anime - and the people that watch and enjoy it - only because they don't understand it. I've got a few things to say on the subject as to why anime is so unique, creative, and enjoyable to watch.

Like any other versions of entertainment, there are plenty of examples that are both very good and examples that are very bad. When it comes to anime there are a couple of reasons you find it so good. First because it originates in Japan that acts as a bit as a natural filter. It takes extra time and money to translate it from it's natural language. If the Anime is very bad, they are less likely to put the time and money into translatin…

I'm The Worst

Sorry all! it's been a long and busy day! I promise to be better tomorrow. I may even post twice. I'm also trying to figure out a way to expand my audience. I'm researching ways to better manage a blog. I'll keep you all updated, and I still haven't quit on the whole podcast idea. I just keep forgetting to do the research.

It's time to take things more seriously. See you tomorrow.

Buh-bye.
