Rumi, Hafiz, Camus, Nietzsche ... they were the real deal. They were grounded ... they stared at the void and laughed ... danced in the field beyond good and evil ... these badass free spirits are my only solace now.

Foucault ... too dense. His theories on power made sense at the time ... but we all know Discipline and Punish was really just a projection of his obsession with S&M.

Baudrillard ... too obtuse.

Lacan ... pure bullshit.

Derrida ... no longer relevant.

Wittgenstein somehow still works for me, especially the stuff about death and eternity in the Tractatus.

Descartes ... too Christian.

Logical positivism ... a sad joke.

Heidegger was definitely on to something when he lived alone there in his hut ... too bad he was a Nazi.

Through all these dead white guys, you can trace a line ... the abstraction of mind from flesh, of being from earth, of humanity from its soul. These were the types of philosophers Nietzsche mocked ... those who “waged war” on life.

Truly ... Friedrich was right when he said ...“’for as long as men have existed ... man has enjoyed himself too little: that alone, my brothers, is our original sin!’ Thus Spoke Zarathustra.”

Nietzsche enjoyed his way smack into siphilis, madness, suicide. He hardly serves as a model for a life well enjoyed. The way to find meaning and enjoyment in life is not to pursue it directly (empty hedonism) but to serve others.

Science fiction it seems has had an adverse effect if we loook at advertising and entertainment. The unraviling of our minds is a complex one. The doom diary is another one of these examples. One here is not saying that this experiment is bad or good. Although you can certianly find out on facebook whether or not this a liked thing or a:(. Maybe we can look out our windows and see that there are things like hospitals that contain the sickneless of industrial waist, unclean air, police state and so on. It is like Phillip K Dicks Novel or even a Gene Wolfe for that matter. Maybe Adbusters is just another one of these things. Just a human living in the madness you write in your doom diary although try real hard to just live without it now. Nobody Jan. 22 2014. But really now I like to think of as the year 69 according to Arthur Koestler
