Ok KT you win. Being schooled in greek and latin I am not really well versed in ignorance.

Still. Lets make a point of it. Of course healthy men prefer sex with a woman. Naturally they weren't faggers, classical gaymess isn't even about sex, only about vanity, narcissism I should say. Its just that power eroticizes and men get carried away when they drink and talk of victory. Its obscene, but so is much of war.




Alexanders story ends when the troops rebelled and compelled the king to cease the Indian campaign. All beyond that is irrelevant actually, as India carried the great yogi culture in which Jesus was also steeped in his long absence after which he is transformed from rebellious boy to magician.

India remains the invincible nation. It gained as much from England as England did of it - but of course this was always the trick of the vowel-shifters; they had something to offer. And so did Alexander. He offered the savages mathematics and woud have found, had he penetrated India, that here the folks already had their own. Imagine that - he woud have had something to bring home.

Instead of feeding back ancient Indian logic to Greece the whole affair ended in a puerile dream. And so the myth remained true, Achilles and the phantasmagoric nature of power. Caesar, our world.

Life as a mass phenomenon is so easily moved into precarious and nonsensical paths, simply because there are no "normal" paths. The invention of a Norm is what poses the largest problem; one needs at once to be sublimely fantastical in creative whim, that temperament of the evil clown, and one needs a steady high voltage of disciplined unfolding force.

An interlude.
These are examples of non-Alexandrian, normal human thinking at war.
We can see the extrapolated opportunism of Hannibal which was all too proud



and the already advanced evil of the Germans.



and we will see some Augustinian faith and some accidental elephant charges

Greek men primarily took to homosexuality because they were unhappy with the passivity of their women
So had the latter been more enthusiastic the desire to seek satisfaction elsewhere would not have existed

Also Spartan boys were taken from their mothers and trained in an exclusively male environment from the age of seven onwards
In such an environment it would therefore have been perfectly natural for them to develop an attraction to each other over time

But a sexual, physical attraction? Have human beings changed so much since then? Would a boy who was heterosexual automatically or otherwise develop that kind of attraction simply because he was thrown together with other boys? I wonder about that.
"Look closely. The beautiful may be small."


"Two things fill the mind with ever new and increasing admiration and awe, the oftener and more steadily we reflect on them: the starry heavens above me and the moral law within me."


“Whereas the beautiful is limited, the sublime is limitless, so that the mind in the presence of the sublime, attempting to imagine what it cannot, has pain in the failure but pleasure in contemplating the immensity of the attempt.”

I guess the wokers have a point and somewhere, sex is sex Arc. Human warmth and flesh and passion is always going to have its effect no matter what gender. Maybe a revolting effect, maybe erotic, often in case of homosexuality, both. Much depravity. This is not something that changed. Prisons, which are filled to the brim with testosterone, are seething with homosex. And I think homosex is actually a prison or the interpretation of the passions as a prison. I dunno it seems like weary men fall for that shit.

Surreptitious is right by the way, the Greeks loathed the passivity of their women. Even though Spartans, which is an interesting story, had an all female oligarchy.



Yeah, the point of this thread is supposed to be about superior wartactics, magic, the Gods, the stuff of the male psyche.

in fact, homosexuals are a very small minority in prisons. most inmates absolutely detest gay inmates. homosexuality is associated with weakness and emasculation, something reserved for what are called the 'punks'... usually the flaming fags who do hair and laundry for a little commissary on the side. and it didn't matter if you were the pitcher or the catcher. you're still a fag, and you didn't interact with other inmates unless it was for business.

what you're talking about are hollywood prisons where you, and i quote, 'don't drop the soap'. however, in the prisons i was in, you didn't even take a shower the same time as the fags. the fags had their own designated shower time. who wants to be in the shower while some freak is staring at you the whole time? i seen a nigga get laid out for staring before. bet you he didn't stare no more.

Anyway. Obviously the gaynarrative is obfuscation of power, the obstruction of the love of power.
So is the antiJew narrative. Its like veil after veil. Well never find out who is managing at the inner lodge. Certainly we would NOT want to know.

Also here, Alexander is refreshing. A rare episode in history where there was no power in the shadows.

nah that's hollywood. you'd never find a gang of fags like the sisters who've got the muscle to extort you. okay so there's two kinds of homos in prison. the most common kind, accounting for probably 90 percent of them, are the flaming gays. these guys didn't turn gay in prison, but already were gay, and going to prison was like hitting the jack-pot. they love it. the other kind of gay was usually a lifer who's already been down for twenty years... typically a big black fella named clarence or something like that. and these guys always target the fresh meat... usually the skinny white boys who don't know the ropes and are pulling their first bid. i knew one, actually. he got beaten up in the canteen line by a lifer who's advances he wasn't answering to. but here's the thing. these prisons are relatively small, and everybody knows, or knows about, everybody else. keeping in mind that nobody associates with gays unless they're punks (harmless queers), the predator type doesn't last long before he gets shipped. now this little white dude didn't report that he got beaten up. instead it was someone who saw it happen, knew about the dude, and anonymously reported the event to the POleece. the dude was put into solitary and shipped to another prison in a week. found out later that he'd been through like four prisons, and did the same thing at every one. so the predators get rooted out by the inmates as soon as they become known.

being gay in prison simply isn't cool, man, and nothing is more important and necessary than being cool while in prison. you gotta be a cool hand luke, and you can do this is a few simple steps: don't talk to the POleece, don't snitch, mine ya business, and put that work in on the weight pile. extra credit if you smart. inmates are literally mesmerized by intellectuals in prison. they're treated like a species of wisemen; 'yo see that dude over there? that nigga smarta then a mawfucka! he be all talkin' bout god and politics and shit, man. that nigga sharp.'

wait, you asked me something like 'what do you think about the female intellect', didn't you? or was that in another thread?

really though, think about that question. it's so incredibly general that i'd not know where to start in answering it.

i'll make you a deal. tell me what you think about cardboard boxes and i'll try to answer your question.

Alexander was once humbled by a man who lived to tell, at least in histories and anecdotal remnants we have of such events happening. This was the sage Diogenes, who lived in an amphora and was very witty on top of that. He is reputed to have asked, to the offer extended by the great King on his own behalf to the Socrete (in Diogenes it is best seen how the poison of down-going genius spread and took hold of Athens, the extreme quality of wit compared to the radically diminished quality of life) which was that he need merely speak his wish and it would be granted, that Mr Alexander could step aside, out of his sun. Then Alexander reputedly said that if he wasn't Alexander he'd want to be Diogenes to which Diogenes replied that if he wasn't Diogenes he'd also want to be Diogenes.

If true it would have been a brilliant event which it might have been because these Atheneans were really very clever people, but less consequential. Sometimes, people who aren't as witty are still better at life. I think Alexander wasn't very witty at all - how can one be so devout and religious and singleminded for territorial expansion and personal glorification and afford to relativize everything in a good quippy remark? One cant. One must be a bit of s stuck up asshole to get anywhere in this world, even comedians, and we all know Alexander was not a comedian.

How boring the comedian in light of the emperor, for how trivial life seems entirely, if even the Rams Horn King can be put aside for the mere grimace of a philosopher.
