IMO some LARP can be interesting, but it is better to give people free reign to discover something new and more relevant to them, rather than constrain them with practices ancient people may or may not have done. If it is truly important, it can be rediscovered.

I think the cosmic mind thing could simply be a different way of describing the laws that we observe, e.g. gravity, Newton's laws, inverse relationship of pressure and volume, etc.

I could see this. The noumenon exists in some real sense even though we can't physically touch it. This would be very similar to the Gnostic conception of God.

Thanks for the recommendation, I'll have to check it out. I have similar reservations about the self-abnegation aspects attributed to Buddhism, but if it could be used similar to Stoicism as a form of mental self-control then that could be very useful.

btw, have you seen my other comment in this thread or considered checking out /s/altreligion? I'm asking everyone ITT because this is probably my all-time favorite subject in this intellectual space.

Interestingly enough this could be a point of contention among believers. To me, a cyclical nature of time is too fatalistic - I would rather see a linear progression towards an ideal state of existence. Others might reject historicism outright, and claim that history is not predetermined but instead lies in the hands of those willing to change it.

However, this sort of debate is healthy and shouldn't be suppressed.

I do know that Hinduism is a non dogmatic religion where much of it is up to interpretation including perception of their gods. I think having a non dogmatic religion is essential for a future religion.

I agree with this. Identifying gods, heroes, or archetypes should be left up to believers themselves.

For example, someone coming from a Christian background may identify Jesus as the ultimate Archetype, while someone coming from a pagan background may put Odin in this spot instead.

Allowing believers to define this hierarchy for themselves, as well as to debate it with others, leaves room for the belief system to grow.

That's a great example. Even the most strident materialist must acknowledge a deeper sense of meaning in a cultural touchstone like that.

An everyday ritual like laying flowers on someone's grave is another example of this concept. Even a hardcore atheist would have difficulty opposing this practice, despite no living person actually benefitting from the flowers being there. Maybe you could say the person who puts them there benefits psychologically, but even then, what's the harm in that?

Some other aspects I might add to your ideas: the prediction of the future (through scientific means) and interpretation of dreams.

Btw, have you seen my other comment in this thread or considered checking out /s/altreligion?

phrenology

Maybe he means something like physiognomy, or maybe just the general idea of innate traits influencing outward behaviors.

Belief in a cosmic mind aka God which can be justified scientifically

Yeah, I don't totally agree with this except as a matter of interpretation.

Unless the universe has always existed, one could objectively say that there was a supernatural unmoved mover that somehow started time and created everything. However, such an entity does not need to be sentient.

Maybe one could posit some interesting beliefs about the nature of consciousness as well, but I don't think there is anything approximating a "cosmic mind" that can be equated to the traditional conception of God.

I don't see Catholicism as being in conflict with this idea. If anything, Catholicism is a sub-set of the ideology described here, or a specific iteration of it.

This is evidenced by the fact that a pagan, a Christian, and an atheist could all gravitate towards these same conclusions. And this underlying structure is what interests me the most, not the cultural idiosyncrasies that happen to be on top.

A man living on an island all alone, with no exposure to human culture, might independently discover the existence of a creator based on his own rational thought. However, it is highly dubious that he would end up as a devout Catholic, or a Muslim, or a Hindu. He would be something else entirely.

As you say yourself, much of Christianity has "devolved into a guessing game about random citations of the Bible". This doesn't interest me, as the Bible itself - and especially one's particular interpretation of the Bible - must be accepted on faith.

I have read philosophers like Thomas Aquinas and I simply don't believe you can arrive at Catholicism from pure reason based on his arguments. In fact I'm pretty sure he says the same. This doesn't interest me - and to be brutally honest, I don't agree with many of the values that Christianity teaches anyway.

My goal is to identify the bones that make up these belief systems, not become a believer in one that already exists. I wouldn't do what I'm doing if I thought any current religion was sufficient.

This is a fascinating concept and one of the main reasons why I made an account here. In fact a sub already exists for this, and I would encourage everyone with an interest to give it a look: /s/altreligion

The ideas you've mentioned are remarkably similar to my own ideas on it:

  • I also think that neither Christianity nor paganism can be a model in the days to come. The former has internal inconsistencies, promotes bad values, and requires the believer to accept the existence of supernatural beings on faith alone. The latter is more traditional, but also requires faith over reason and in the modern age just feels like LARPing.

  • Neoplatonism and ancestor-worship are belief systems that invoke strong feelings of spirituality, but both can be said to be objectively true even in a purely scientific universe.

  • Viewing natural law as an extension of the will of God, or at least something that must be acknowledged and respected, is another belief system that promotes strong spiritual feelings while being compatible with "materialism".

  • Allowing heroic figures to become archetypes is a brilliant idea. This would also make the new religion more appealing to those who followed Christianity or paganism, as well as give the new religion much-needed roots. Heroic figures of the past were not weird heretics or unbelievers, but were past saints. Perhaps Jesus might be re-conceptualized as an Archetype of Mercy, or Odin as an Archetype of Wisdom.

COVID Vaccines: One Year On by Ponderer in debatealtright

[–]Ponderer[S] 2 insightful - 1 fun2 insightful - 0 fun3 insightful - 1 fun -  (0 children)

From what I can tell there might've been a plot to create an artificial pandemic and increase deaths by rolling out a faulty vaccine but I don't think it was anything more than that based on the evidence, and given that governments have been able to act against it the conspiracy wasn't as overarching as some assume.

I was considering making a thread for all the conspiracies (or benign possibilities) that there could possibly be for the COVID vaccine. Everything from "the vaccines are the mark of the beast" to "governments just had the best interest of their people at heart".

Would there be interest in this?

COVID Vaccines: One Year On by Ponderer in debatealtright

[–]Ponderer[S] 2 insightful - 1 fun2 insightful - 0 fun3 insightful - 1 fun -  (0 children)

Antivax was a monumental failure of the right. A lot of political capital was spent on an issue that was factually dubious at best, thousands of right-wingers died because of it and little was achieved.

IMO it's more nuanced than this. The issues involved are very complicated.

Tens of thousands of people work with vaccine research and safety and they are spread across a tripple digit number of countries. No conspiracy that size has a snowball's chance in hell to survive.

Right-wingers have good reason to distrust authorities. There are thousands of medical experts who advocate for transgenderism, for example, or who work in the psychiatry industry cooking up bogus disorders like "toxic masculinity".

Of course you could say that the field of vaccine research is a lot more solid and more difficult to politicize than other fields. But when many of the most vocal proponents of vaccines are people who said they wanted you dead just a few weeks earlier, it's hard to shift gears and change heuristics.

The greater failure for the right was the lack of debate or discussion before coming to a position on COVID-related issues. Most positions were just kneejerk reactions against what the left was doing. Fortunately, many of these reactions ended up being right: lockdowns really were a way to disadvantage small businesses in favor of corporations, and the media really was pushing double-standards in calling right-wing gatherings "superspreader events" while praising left-wing protests.

However, other reactions were very wrong, such as treating covid like it didn't exist at all.

Ultimately this comes from the right's disorganization and (unintentionally) decentralized nature. The sad truth is that this sub is one of the few places where rightists can actually debate and think critically, unlike many of the echo chambers where one must take a hardline in one direction or the other.

The vaccine passports were a de facto way to exclude vaccine skeptics from society.

I could see that. From your perspective, were the spike proteins included on purpose, by accident, or because those in power just didn't care?

Honestly I'm not sure what the angle really is with the vaccine, but my best guess would be that these big vaccine makers put a lot of money in the right pockets to create the vaccine mandates and then made an order of magnitude more in profits from said vaccine mandates.

This makes sense. Corporations just being greedy, and there being nothing terribly wrong with the vaccine itself, would be a relatively more "benign" reason for the vaccine push.

I used to be subbed to this but it's all demoralization at this point. I think there's a real reason Reddit leaves these doomer blackpilled subs up, while banning funny meme subs or discussion-based subs. If you're already redpilled continuing to binge on TiA and stuff like it is bad for your mindset.

Fun fact: every country in the world has leftover men since there are more males than females at birth. As many as 1 in 20 are leftovers below age 40 or so. This only equalizes later on since men have a much higher death rate.

This isn't abortion-related, in fact you see the same trend in animals. Look up 'sex ratios at birth'.

Why this isn't widely acknowledged is a mystery to me. The disparity obviously causes social problems and there's several technological solutions already available.

Virtues need to be universal in order to work. If large percentages of the population are openly bucking a virtue, most people will see the virtue as fake.

Think of religion. When ~99% of people are devout church-goers, it's incredibly difficult to dissent against religion or disobey its commandments. But if 30-50% of people are atheists, the rest of the population starts wondering why they have to abstain from alcohol and get up early on Sunday.

So, a fully-chaste society could work. A fully-promiscuous society could work. A partly-promiscuous partly-chaste society would not work, because the chaste people would always get jealous of the promiscuous people, unless you can convince the chaste ones they are somehow superior.

In the past this worked with monks and the clergy because everyone respected them and at least paid lip service to chastity as a virtue. The clergy were chaste but took solace in it because everyone looked up to them. Today this would not work, because the majority of people do not even pretend that chastity is better or that chaste people are worthy of respect. This is the reason you don't see people clamoring to join monasteries, nunneries, or the priesthood.

The D.C. Council on Thursday considered legislation that would ban cashless, brick-and-mortar businesses in an effort to make the city less vulnerable to cyberattacks and more friendly to residents without banking or credit cards.

The way to defeat the push for a 'cashless society' is to expose how it discriminates against poor people without bank accounts.

So there may be no urgent need for an exodus after all.

It's still good to make plans just in case things get so bad that moving is inevitable. And an "exodus" out of California and New York was absolutely necessary to get to this point.

I feel like the exodus that felt inevitable a year ago is not necessarily the case right now. We have bastions of freedom like Florida, which has given a little bit of guts to gutless places like Texas, and a few others.

IMO people should keep making plans to move if necessary and building up their own independence regardless. Don't panic or lose sleep or anything, but don't forget to stay alert.

Even Disney supposedly is going to focus on better stories and worry less about wokeism (we'll see I find that hard to believe).

I have a hunch that media pushes leftism hard during Republican administrations, and dials it back during Democratic ones.

I don't remember media being unwatchably bad under the early and mid Obama administration, for example. That only happened around the time Trump got in.

It would make sense if the same were true for Biden - Hollywood hasn't actually changed their minds, they just know they'll lose their entire audience if they keep shoveling crap.

We do not dismiss the ongoing and upcoming tribulations that we will face. However, we also do not want people to ignore the beautiful future that they can help create. Furthermore, we hope to create a roadmap for future political action, whether at the local, national, or supranational level. We need to develop concrete ideas for what our ideal society looks like. The beauty of creating is in forcing Man to formulate his ideas in a genuine way.

Short of getting an extremely good quality water filter for your home, you still end up showering in it even if you change your regular drinking water.

We ought to have discussions about this on this sub.

One article I've just read suggests that an activated carbon filter can remove some phthalates, but not necessarily all. A nano-filtration system would be more expensive but also more effective. Carbon filters, at least, are commonly available for showerheads.

When you think about it, that's going to make its way into the foods you consume as well.

Growing your own food and raising livestock could mitigate this, unless phthalates can make their way into rainwater (which I can't find any information on).

Eating organic food could also help reduce some exposure.

Also, not saying that elites aren't actually advocating for pedophilia or that they don't use this bullshit argument to further it or other kinds of degeneracy.

I don't trust the vaccine, but I don't believe it will cause millions to drop dead. And in a year from now when they don't, the libtards are going to all point and laugh at the conspiracy theorists who predicted they would. The conspiracy theorists themselves will feel confused and ashamed and maybe even abandon their more reasonable beliefs. It's a huge psyop on both sides.

An honest question to the pro-vax people on this sub, why do you trust the state on the vaccine issue? by casparvoneverec in debatealtright

If you are terrified of foreign mrna in your body you clearly shouldn't get covid since it is a giant ball of replicating mrna that replicates in your circulatory system.

This is a false dichotomy.

It implies that there is a binary choice: either get the vaccine or contract COVID. That simply isn't true, it's entirely possible to avoid both. How do you think most people survived through 2020?

Hate to be that guy but I don't think that article actually existed

Can't find it online (iirc Netflix still has Cuties up which was far more flagrant, I don't see why SA would take down an article from 2019) not even mirrored anywhere, the pic looks a bit shooped, and the text below the headline sounds a little too much like bait or Babylon Bee tier satire

Feel free to prove me wrong and share an archived version of the article if you can find one

I agree that the elites are attempting to normalize pedophilia and they use the bullshit "if you don't like it you're one of them" tactic, but we need to be accurate about where on the timeline we're on

Was the car a positive or negative development for society? by Ponderer in debatealtright

Obviously every community should be built so that employment and essentials -- such as schools, shops, medical services, and the like -- can be found within walking distance of one's residence. But cars will still have significant utility as individual transport between settlements, and hopefully there will be developments in sustainable transport in the future.

This sounds like the ideal world. I could see some speculative fiction examining a society that works like this, where communities themselves are completely walkable, and only use cars to travel between them.

I like that take. I call it a "problem of scale", basically when something isn't bad in and of itself, but becomes bad when everyone does it.

For example, fishing isn't bad. But if too many people fish too much, the natural supply of fish is exhausted. There are plenty of things like this, and people portray the original thing as a problem, when in reality it's just the amount of people doing it, which is much more subtle and harder to blame.

All this said, one dilemma here is that by advising young right-wingers to not join or start large companies, we would be shutting them out from considerable cultural power.

What are your thoughts on this? Also, what is your stance on conservatives running for public office, or joining organizations run by the government?

Oh, I totally agree things would be screwed if we run out of gas now. But that's mostly because we've already built our society to be dependent on it.

Before the car, most people lived on a farm. Combined with their local community, they were more-or-less self-sufficient. Not being able to travel to the next town over would deny them access to specialized goods like medicines, but they would still have necessities like food and water. That's not the case today.

This is an excellent strategy.

Even little words of encouragement go a long way in someone's life who's being boiled alive.

Totally agree. For example if I see someone wearing a conservative message on a t-shirt or bumper sticker, I'll give them a thumbs-up or compliment on it. Sounds minor, but every bit helps.

I wish I knew more history about this, specifically relating to stuff like Communist regimes. Surely there were some nomads in Siberia or whatever that the Politburo didn't deign to notice?

Living isolated out in the boonies may even be more dangerous than the relative anonymity of a town or a small city.

This is also a concept that interests me. I suppose it depends on how strict things get and what's demanded of the average person.

Just a heads up, I wouldn't take the opinions of a subreddit as anywhere near reflective of the opinions of the general population. I sincerely believe that many subs are astroturfed, or at least massively skewed towards leftist opinions.

By any chance are you able to move out of NYC? Or are you tied down there?

Also, which vaccine did you take? In a month or so you might consider making a post if you've had any side effects or anything

It is a conflict between the rational, material, and passive vs the spiritual, emotional, and active.

Right on. I got the same sense from the part of the clip that I watched. Most of the comments (which are now supporting Vaush) are clearly in the former camp.
