Aphorisms 2

Postby waechter418 » Fri Oct 25, 2019 3:38 pm

Innocence is a lack of resistance against corruption.

Homo claims not to be able, when he does not want to – and vice versa.

The more confused and Self-estranged Homo gets, the more he seeks refuge in possessions and religions.

Homo threatening his kind with death comes mainly from his fear of death – and of life as well.

Existence is lust and requires strength to bear its joy.

Because by the time he can mature and build resistance, he has lost his lust for living.

Thats naive - which is different. A flower is innocent, precisely because it is perfectly resistant to corruption. Its health affords it innocence. A flower is hardly naive, being the theatre of the birds and the bees and all. Nietzsche speaks of the bestowing virtue as a soft lustre.

Homo claims not to be able, when he does not want to – and vice versa.

The latter requires courage, the former is simply entropy.

I don't think so. The more a human (I assume this is what you mean) understands himself as capable of sustaining certain possessions and religions, the more people will come to him for advice and comfort.

Homo threatening his kind with death comes mainly from his fear of death – and of life as well.

But also because it hasn't really been one kind.
Fear of living non-being is a factor as much as fear of death, being accompanied by an a priori assumed envy for actual self-integrated beings, which among humans are more exception than rule.
Structural integrity is a great disturbance on conditional beings.

Existence is lust and requires strength to bear its joy.

Yes, because that joy, far greater than lust had anticipated, is innocent simply by virtue of spanning areas of existence that it alone brought about, where no prior knowledge can serve.
A white hot void which opens into pitfalls at all wavering.

Perhaps never had it. Some folks' only lust is their hatred, and when they've fulfilled the work of the hate only loathing remains.
So hate is much sought after among dead, neutron stars - the only passion attainable to them, and they require passion to escape themselves, a place where they only loathe.

And it is true passion is required to burn away the filth. Still, no soul can be absolutely joyless - when there is great dread, suspect great reserves - something has to support the dread, it does not carry its own weight.
The strong do what they can, the weak accept what they must.

Hate is usually self indigenous, and reflective. Naivete has a broader spectral archetype, built on zillions of years of evolutionary/existential premise.

Hate attempts to pre-empt succession by re-flexion.

You can be aware of corruptions existence, and not care, or be able to do anything, realistically.
