Out of His Mind: Phase VII ~ I Am/I Think I Am/I Wish To Be What I Think I Am

Soulforge ~ Gerard Brom

the existence of this space; this {interface} implies that my life’s hard won atheist belief system [a belief system that did not waver even in the depths of pain and imminant mortality] was wrong; or perhaps only flawed; since it appears that something of me remains.
i remember that my belief system concluded that the world is unjust and that this was a necessary premise for survival.
but something at my core asked the question: if the world is unjust, do i need to be unjust to survive?
perhaps my isolation makes the answer easy – to survive in an unjust world i would need to justify my thoughts and actions; apply some system of logical analysis in order to make my way through the labyrinth.
i remember that, in life, it was necessary to make these judgements; ultimately in order to proceed with the business of life, but also in order to maintain a sense of self-worth; a sense of good [right].
why was this so? why, if all that is required is to survive, did i need to make decisions that would leave me feeling good?
is it true to say that those whose decisions and actions do not comply with the justification of good [right] will feel bad [wrong]?
perhaps my analysis is digital and requires some analogue gradiation.
perhaps the perception of good [right] is not an absolute and that there is an area of more good than bad.
there must, however be a tipping point, and that tipping point must be absolute.
it is [and was] apparent to me that an anarchist viewpoint must follow logically from an atheist belief system.
an anarchist viewpoint must form the basis of an atheist morality.
do what is just as long as no other is harmed or effected adversely by your action.
from this basic premise all else should stem; and survival should ensue.
perhaps i shall consult the {interface}, knowing as i do that the {interface} [like the god of superstitious belief] will not [or cannot] answer.

...rational thought is interpretation according to a scheme which we cannot escape.

~~Nietzsche (from Notes-1887 )~~

Now yer in it!
Nature is indifferent to its bounty.
Justice is civilization's imposition of preferential outcomes.
True self-worth is one's ability to adapt to nature.
Survival is mistaking self-worth for ability to adapt to civilization. This mistake is the source of any confusion about right and wrong.

Is it possible for there to exist a system of atheism, much less believers in it, since atheists only exist in the minds of believers in gods? Without religious belief systems there would be nothing to be a- of.

Is it possible to be an anarchist without the imposition of justice on the indifferent symbiosis of adapting to nature from which to differentiate oneself?

Essentially, feeling good is adapting to indifference rather than making a competition of life, just because that's the way it is.

Subtorp: Nietzsche handles the razor with clinical precision, we need to determine what the 'scheme' is in order to escape. Perhaps.
Dood: without doubt we are agreed in these two areas... what the mind finds hardest to accept is
a) its own demise
b) the insignificance of its own demise
Only when we graduate from the delusion of a divine plan, can we move on to tackling the above.

Yodood said...

Pi, Do you mean "mind's" demise including curiosity or mind's certainties demise?

Pisces Iscariot said...

Dood: I was referring to death.

Yodood said...

Me too.
