DEVTOME.COM HOSTING COSTS HAVE BEGUN TO EXCEED 115$ MONTHLY. THE ADMINISTRATION IS NO LONGER ABLE TO HANDLE THE COST WITHOUT ASSISTANCE DUE TO THE RISING COST. THIS HAS BEEN OCCURRING FOR ALMOST A YEAR, BUT WE HAVE BEEN HANDLING IT FROM OUR OWN POCKETS. HOWEVER, WITH LITERALLY NO DONATIONS FOR THE PAST 2+ YEARS IT HAS DEPLETED THE BUDGET IN SHORT ORDER WITH THE INCREASE IN ACTIVITY ON THE SITE IN THE PAST 6 MONTHS. OUR CPU USAGE HAS BECOME TOO HIGH TO REMAIN ON A REASONABLE COSTING PLAN THAT WE COULD MAINTAIN. IF YOU WOULD LIKE TO SUPPORT THE DEVTOME PROJECT AND KEEP THE SITE UP/ALIVE PLEASE DONATE (EVEN IF ITS A SATOSHI) TO OUR DEVCOIN 1M4PCuMXvpWX6LHPkBEf3LJ2z1boZv4EQa OR OUR BTC WALLET 16eqEcqfw4zHUh2znvMcmRzGVwCn7CJLxR TO ALLOW US TO AFFORD THE HOSTING.

THE DEVCOIN AND DEVTOME PROJECTS ARE BOTH VERY IMPORTANT TO THE COMMUNITY. PLEASE CONTRIBUTE TO ITS FURTHER SUCCESS FOR ANOTHER 5 OR MORE YEARS!

Of My Learnings

Foreword

This work is composed of two parts, insofar. The original piece and the addenum. The intention was to continue this work, and incorporate the addendum into the whole piece. As yet, this is unfinished.



My learnings, insofar.

I feel it is time to come clean with all of these projects I claim to have been doing and experiments, and readings and writings; notes and notices, I have a large desire to write a piece summarising my learnings – those truths I have learned through life and philosophising that are ripe enough to be eaten but not yet developed enough to be low hanging fruit, I bring it in an early form, in my eyes; but it is anything but unprepared.

I feel it is only appropriate to begin with that which is relevant to the zeitgeist, and as such I will not mention a philosophical truth, and yet the conclusion we will draw will still be of the philosophical. I think it is necessary to approach philosophy in such dynamic manners in this time because for some reason, instead of bringing back the art of the ever-nearer allusion, we have resorted to bowing to science, and becoming analytics. I remember Nietzsche baptising a new generation of philosophers; a generation I was already too late to join, but the sensation my mind had to comprehend when I read such metaphysically-loaded words was that of new pride; a higher order of pride hitherto I had only scarcely noticed. It is also true then that the context in which we experience qualia is highly important as to our processing of it.

You fear that I will begin this paragraph with my prime feeling. – The keyword there being prime – feelings, like thoughts are many at once and often wrong. It is our sense of critical sensing, not just critical thinking that we must develop.

Again, as Nietzsche proposed the metamorphoses of man; I propose the metamorphoses of mind, and the second stage of it I reason is the understanding of the logos. The first stage is the death of God; and I reason this also to be so due to the way mankind must unmake his own manmade ideas, because that which harmonises with the natural, underlying, joire de vivre of the universe will always prosper, and that which does not eventually falls to the ground.

Spinoza would have understood such ideas, I believe. No man could so thoroughly prove at the very least a reflection of that which appears divine without touching on that which I am talking about – Indeed; all philosophers upon the path of the logos will have fought and danced with the domineering contenders of ideals that lie in wait from every direction.

I, am a pessimist of the majority; for the majority only prove that to rationalise the irrational is logical – the fears inside their mind click, one by one in sequence like a mass of unchained gears being pushed by the rod of some unruly child. Intellectual honesty must be difficult to nurture; for I see God has tried.

Subjectivity is the state before objectivity. Will you understand me then, when I tell you that this objectivity, too, is subjective? It is a quantum truth.

As unlearned as I am; I find myself growing in new ways all the time. It is an easy mistake to make to confuse this newfound consciousness growth,

Please do not dictate to me what is 'natural'. Do you know it is natural for you to be born with genes that evolve as you age? What is to say you cannot, as a consciousness manifesting from a body, whip your genes into slowing your sleep cycles? To heating up or cooling down the body? into evolving the mind to hear the call of the divine?

Science has many failings. You think me a liar? Why is it that candidates for scientific study are not required to be intellectually honest? Why would you ascribe morals to yourself if you are not going to apply them to your most true of actions; those you commit in your mind – to simplify, I am talking about the judgments you make. Those judgments are that which shape your mind. Remember your consciousness is the master lens through which we view reality – it needs constant adjustment to capture the truest reality.

Logos is a sense you have to develop. It comes from attempting to infer so deeply that you almost can grasp that which you are inferring straight from the forms themselves.

Nature enchants man so much for it has the handcrafted marks one is used to witnessing on ones own creation; albeit with mans capacity for creation significantly more limited; as we scan the cherry blossom tree, searching for the absolute source of the pinky-white magic we witness falling from the skies to our feet.

From my understanding, the set of genes that create the structure of our minds which is repsonsible for processing, and defining, gender, is the furthest thing from a simple one and zero system. Your genitalia can be overcome; subdued, even. I find it inescapable that when utilising as much of the brain as possible, one tends to become more bisexual in thought – and to elaborate; there is a lessened feeling of lust, the decision of love manifests itself, rather than the desire to love, which is short lived. To be more of a series of higher order thought/feeling chains, at least from my personal experiences, that which I have read and that which I have observed.

Addendum

Of my learnings, addendum.

It seems the case to me that philosophers, and philosophy in general, with the way the proverbial dharmacakra is turning, we may not survive this harsh winter of reason.

Humanities reach has always extended beyond its collective grasp – but such undertakings must be done in logical increments, first they are merely dreams, then they become art, the art becomes a collective societal condition; then, finally it was of us, it was our culture, our collective being.

Now, with the domineering advent of modern, as well as the undercurrent of, postmodern society, we began to distort our own truths and move away from – or outright ignore, our inner logos. Dreams now consist of material things, do they not? You are racing on the motorbike, but you are poor; and your daughters bicycle has just been run over. There are many common underlying truths in such a situation – so I urge you men of will, those of understanding, please cast down your comforts from time to time, and grow. Perchance you may dream for real once again.

Marx would have it that no change is gradual, every change – not growth – is the result of conflict in his eyes. How can you establish a foundation, a shared perception, through or in the midst of conflict? At least a foundation based upon truths, rather than evils. Dare I dream, once upon a time such truths were evident to all populous societies, brought to a man's ear through the romantic medium of poetry.

As we experience so much in these times, we often forget that we seem to have a higher calling in ourselves, a constant direction to follow; despite our inability to ever truly become it, we can circumnavigate it, we can trace it, and become ourselves. So it is then that to adapt is to square the circle, to grow is to square the circle, and to change is to square the circle. The only difference between these functions of the will is the size of the circle to be squared. The old wisdoms do have a more penetrative understanding, like the book of Job; when read correctly it is enough to introduce hermetic thinking, but again with the average mind so subjugated by the times, it becomes difficult to remain aware of the hidden truths around us; let alone the more obvious ones.
