I have come to a serious problem in my philosophical construct on this wide and wild road of my PhD studies. It is such a head fuck, to be frank that over the past week or so I feel that Nietzsches Abyss is a nothing but a children’s toy that no longer scares me.
This is one of the harder topics to think and write about of late. My initial feeling was to blast out a bunch of uncollected thoughts purely resulting from my utter shock at the scale of the abuse that I was clearly oblivious to, shamefully. I’ve fought the urge to write anything about for the past 2 days as my thoughts on the subject at hand have been too conflicting, even overwhelming. Admittedly, I was and still am somewhat scared of even writing about the subject – can I as a man even talk about the subject of male sexual abuse? If I do, how do I even broach the subject without it being yet another unnecessary male version of a problem that I was shamefully unaware of? In typical fashion I’ve decided to just blow it off any just go for it. Words are important and meaningful, so here are mine.
Originality in Fashion, in the broadest terms, is dead and has been dead for longer than I can remember. Nothing ground breaking in that statement and yet I have retained my interest in the next generation of kids with their adamant fascination in fashion and their pseudo religious fever when it comes to their regurgitated proclamation of originality.
Thanks to copious amounts of Vietnamese Coffee this will be short and to the point, furthermore, this is specifically for us people that create for a living. Withdrawing one’s self creates clarity in intent and the subsequent creative output.
This is going to be reoccurring theme on here, for two reasons. One, economic philosophy is at the core of my PhD and secondly it might just be the single most important concept and point of discussion of opposition in the 21st Century. Our value system is skewed, I’ll go even further, our understanding and interaction with the current physical and metaphysical value system is the single most destructive force of our society and furthermore, the greatest enemy in the light of positive humanitarian rational progress.
I have been thinking about Death and my own mortality a lot lately. Truth be told, I do think about my own mortality a lot and whilst it goes through waves of importance, or let’s say it being at the forefront in my mind, the last two, three months it has been at the forefront again. More recently, two deaths have really brought it back home again. Earlier, a friend of mine, Gary Warnett died unexpectedly, and today the news of Tom Petty’s death arrived.
Right away, I am not talking about emotional pain, that’s a whole book in itself, but physical pain. I am not even entirely sure there is a point to this train of thought other than it being ever so present again today.
This is must likely going to be a reoccurring topic so excuse if this isn’t going to be a broad full scale nuclear war on the subject but rather a small SAS behind the enemies line type of bite- Culture Vultures aka Industry Marketing / Connector / PR types.
