I'll just leave this here to be quite honest family.

I love cheesy alternative rock. My wife has this song on a sampler, which contains HITS ONLY!

If the universe is materialistic, why don't we feel at home here?
3 posts omitted.
But as he stands before imminent death, he grasps its nature also, and the cosmic import of the step to come. His creative imagination constructs new, fearful prospects behind the curtain of death, and he sees that even there is no sanctuary found. And now he can discern the outline of his biologico-cosmic terms: He is the universe’s helpless captive, kept to fall into nameless possibilities.

From this moment on, he is in a state of relentless panic.

Such a feeling of cosmic panic is pivotal to every human mind. Indeed, the race appears destined to perish in so far as any effective perservation and continuation of life is ruled out when all of the individual’s attention and energy goes to endure, or relay, the catastrophic high tension within.

The tragedy of a species becoming unfit for life by over-evolving one ability is not confined to humankind. Thus it is thought, for instance, that certain deer in paleontological times succumbed as they acquired overly-heavy horns. The mutations must be considered blind, they work, are thrown forth, without any contact of interest with their environment.

In depressive states, the mind may be seen in the image of such an antler, in all its fantastic splendour pinning its bearer to the ground.
nice shitpost n1x
Wasn't me m8
Yes, but is it Kafka or is it Mann? Is it because of a inherent unheimlich nature of reality - or another symptom of the stress in our modern (or post-modern) society?

ITT we talk about how petty-bourgeois or full on capitalist we used to be.

syndicalism will allow us to continue our consumption and continue the spectacle (me a few years ago)

> that they went through a naive phase in which they believed there would be some great revolution all at once

right?! Reading the earlier Marxists makes me believe this too (and I'm still sympathetic to it), but now I just think capitalism will probably kill us all before any meaningful change happens. But you know here's to 15/hr minimum wage!
>but now I just think capitalism will probably kill us all before any meaningful change happens.
This so much. Capitalism will make this planet uninhabitable before we ever have global socialism.
>we talk about how petty-bourgeois or full on capitalist we used to be.

Used to be a full on Libertarian.

As many nerds in my teenage years, was pissed that I wasn't popular and girls didn't like me, so I took contrarian positions to my peers in order to justify a superiority complex.

Climate Change wasn't real.
Smoking doesn't cause cancer.
Blacks are genetically stupid.
etc etc.

When I actually broke out of my shell, got out of high school, got new friends. The need to be a contrarian edgelord faded away and those views quickly dissipated.
Within months of actually being in the workforce under the thumb of my beloved "Captains of industry", I was a Socialist.
I read the first third of Atlas Shrugged without knowing the context and I liked it. I saw it as a just slightly more grounded version of Gurren Lagann because the story contextualizes itself with that Icarus reinterpretation and I identified with the guy who hated his family. I might have to groan through the rest if I tried it now though because I really couldn't enjoy the Harrison Bergeron episode of My Little Pony.
>tsk, fucking lefties, obviously we need to give all power to the most intelligent and rational people - like me. Unlike everyone else these select few will be able to act in a truly altruistic way, also robots.

Cuckoldry is a Hell of a lot older than capitalism, m8.
You could argue that concern about it is patriarchal, part of the superstructure, and so on, and therefore bad.

Personally, I think that people who mess around with 3dpd deserve whatever misery they get.
I didn't mean to post that image. Got my waifu mixed up with my Hoxhbando.

I as a strict monogamist don't think my wife "belongs to me", but what would hurt the most from being cucked was the realization that the relationship is not the unique connection only the two of you had, which was sealed by the promise of accepting only the other one as sexual partner.

Also, I just can't believe polyamorous relationship wont lead into an emotional train wreck, but if people think they can manage to avoid this, they should do what makes them happy.

Alain Badiou: Down with Death! Comrade 03/12/2016 (Sat) 06:45:34 [Preview] No. 131 [Reply]
>So we could say that nihilism is the negative subjectivation of finitude; it is fundamentally the organised or anarchic (either is possible) consciousness that because we die, nothing is important. The most classic figure of nihilism is the statement that everything is devalued, de-symbolised and untenable in the face of death. It is an equalisation of the totality of everything that could be valued, faced with the radical ontological finitude that death represents. This question of the relation between nihilism and values is, as you know, a central question in Nietzsche’s philosophy, which takes up this theme of nihilism in order to make a very important diagnostic and critical use of it.

So which conception of /death/ do you find appropriate?Heidegger's 'immanent death' or Badiou's external one?
Am I too opportunistic for seeing them as compatible (one an existentialist approach, and the other as logics)?
Zizek criticizes this very articles by Badiou in part 2 of his newest seminar, titled "Surplus-Value, Surplus-Enjoyment, Surplus-Knowledge":

Part 1: http://mariborchan.si/audio/slavoj-zizek/surplus-value-surplus-enjoyment-surplus-knowledge/

Part 2: http://backdoorbroadcasting.net/2016/04/slavoj-zizek-masterclass-2-surplus-value-surplus-enjoyment-surplus-knowledge/

He reasserts the Hegelian/Freudian immanence of limitation, that is, he denies the Heiddegerian conception of death as something exterior. (Death drive.)

Highly recommended.

>he denies the Heiddegerian* conception of death as something exterior
Badiouian* conception of death as sg exterior!

Sorry, for mixing that up!

gimmie a few hours and I'll post something.
Ok let's see here.

First off, I consider myself a Freudian and Todestrieb is an integral part of that theory.

So my real criticism (in which I agree with Zizek) is that humans are inherently complex and contradictory creatures, we are self-sabotaging. Thus I'm generally critical of this Spinozist notion of conatus, it seems to imply a certain rationality in our drives that might be more based on how we want to perceive ourselves rather than the actual behaviour. This can be seen in as everyday circumstances as our fear to act. We fear the pain of rejection more than the pain of an unrealized fantasy - in the latter we console ourselves with temporal possibilities (if I could just go back in time...).

We're to a certain extent creatures that enjoy our life's tragedy.

On a side-note, I still generally consider a Spinozist reading of (at least young) Marx to hold a lot of weight. I'm currently reading The German Ideology but even in Capital we can find a certain idea of labour as conatus.This becomes even more noticeable in the 'culture' of later Marxists, just look at the ideas of socialist realism (necessary labour into an act of pleasure)!

Wait don't Badiou continue from Heidegger? Now I need to re-read it.
