As the a(A)absolute is approached, the difference between relative events becomes indistinct

They. can be understood contemporaniously.

If you are talking about the sexes, they tend to be drawn to the same potential, often using each other to come closer to it, cooperating.
It is itself of both genders, the perfect intelligence.

Meno - yes and no, they will be apprehended as one but not understood in their own right. Thus what is understood is rather a general substance of perception rather than events, beings.

Potential between the sexes is of course a driving power underneath all human endeavours. But this kind of speaks for itself. As much mystery around where precisely the most rewarding, valuable attraction is to be found remains as there ever was - the flux isn't to be preconceived, and sexual selection is pure flux, the glimmer of light on the surface of the pond always reveals new ripples. All one can do is swim at the proper depth. Swim where fish your size are also swimming. Rank, rather than taste, is the first aphrodisiac. Recognizing ones own rank is to find the best sex. The terms of rank, in turn, are the tastes. Hierarchy is a play of tastes, and games are to be played seriously, with rules, if they're meant to be any fun at all.

For a quicker path to the answer of where to find potential and what it "looks like"... play this track and stare at the Sungif. See how long it takes before a revelation dawns.

This is I believe what was found when Odin hung from the tree and sacrificed one of his eyes for the knowledge of the runes - the 'spells' dances or trances, the forms in time.

All successful 'campaigns' are also runes, riddles with uncertain outcome but definite character. A president must be a recognizable rune.

Agh.

Just saw First Blood again. Forgot what a great movie it is.

Disdain. It's the same reason Nietzsche liked Mark Twain. Nietzsche would have liked 70's action movies.

How can you explain what hasn't been lived?

That's why Fixed Cross and I are idiots. All the effort we put into it. Though we have lived different things. But we both saw a towering figure amdist it.

"Then there's the centinels..."

Hahahaha. At least you put effort into it. Much more than can be said for the rest of mankind.

Mowks comment, focus potential upon potential,


To use the words and not take them in context. I saw potential that was directed at itself, and it was done again with those words. I said upon not against.
Likely I should have phrased the sentiment differently. They weren't so wise after all.

Would someone rip these ridiculous pom poms off my hands. Shouldn't have stuck my nose where it didn't belong but I wanted to see what finally looked like, shouldn't be surprised what I found.

Sort of a fucked up rampage. Live to learn and guess again.

I'm just a bug...learn me something real.

I did bring you at risk of actually respecting something. I do that. People run from me because of it. I know this, Mowk. I did it deliberately to you. HAHAHAHAH.

Absurd attempt at sneaking back into relativism.

No, Pezer, I did not see a towering figure between us.

Capable and I can work as equals, as he actually has the balls to understand value ontology. Or lets say, because he has, besides true unadulterated kingly genius, the size of balls that allows him to understand it.

I understand, you are in the modern environment of filthy smallness, where the notion of reverence must immediately be memed as "pom poms" or those infinitely pettier expressions of the marxist.

But the people you're trying to impress are all already dead.

Who else is gonna say it?
Who else but me is going to show people that there is, next to smallness (and reasonableness), also this other thing, which cant be relativized away as easily?

What do you think will remain after a thousand years -- the relativism? The carefulness, the diplomacy?

Look man maybe this is how things are done in your household, but where I come from if you ask a question and someone takes the trouble of answering it, you don't say "Im not gonna listen to you because listening is as much a waste of time as not listening".

A rather efficient recipe for the death of culture. To regard all paths and passages as shortcuts. To never open any doors because that would be unfair to the other doors.

P - the only figure between us was the Rhythm Wolf. And it wasn't towering, its was laying humbly on its back to be used by us.

This is a fair description of the conundrum Ive resolved, by being technical, precise and drill-like in my approach to Nietzsche and recognizing that what was still "Christian" about him was the presupposition of a Whole, an All.

He saw this All as Will to Power, even though the logic of will to power precludes any coherent totality.

So he was stuck and went mad.

The All had to be forfeited for there to be any power at all.
You can see what the Mayans were on about with their calendar.

My work has indeed been so far to make Nietzsche understood by Americans.* Nietzsche was not significant to Capable, as he seemed mostly to consist of rhetoric. The Will to Power is an entirely rhetorical term. It does not actually convey what is happening under that term, what kind of action it really indicates. It is too "spectacular" and Nietzsche was well aware of the necessity of being spectacular in order to be the iconoclast who smashed "Gott". But the ... bestowing virtue of Nietzsche lies in his apprehension of valuing as a criterium for nobility, which is a criterion for being itself.

The subtle logic which is sensed by the 'higher men" N addresses; indeed a soft lustre, and it is this which Capable apprehended in the value logic, I presume - the sap, resin, rather than the outline of the tree, its form and fruits. What builds the will to power, what is its ground?

Discernment, sharpness, judgment of value in such a way as to raise ones own rank, ones freedom to not receive but give;





* id est to make him understood in a relevant way, to make him useful.
