Beyond Language Fetish

Besides introducing vitalism, I wanted to show its comprehensiveness to discerning readers. It goes beyond grifters like Jordan Peterson or Sam Harris, arguing that well-being is good, but life is meaningless except for pursuing your work-fetish in beatboxing or selling goods on Etsy: ‘your passion.’
Vitalism fulfills philosophy’s trifecta: ethics, truth, and aesthetics. Beyond modernism and postmodernism — which failed this test, rather offering expedient maxims instead — vitalism supports a new era in philosophy. It is the great resolver of science vs. religion, tradition vs. futurism, the individual and the collective, is vs. ought, and materialism vs. idealism. The fulcrum of all these concepts is beyond language, in the realm of experiencing energy’s degeneration or ascent. Correspondingly, we need to demote language from ‘analytical philosophy’ to something secondary and referential to this more fundamental reality. The map, as the proverb goes, is not the territory.
Ethics: Habits related to the refinement of energy. As Nietzsche wrote in Beyond Good and Evil:
“What is good? All that heightens the feeling of power, the will to power, power itself. What is bad? All that is born of weakness. What is happiness? The feeling that power is growing, that resistance is overcome.”
Elsewhere, this may be compared to Aristotle’s virtue ethics or the ‘glad tidings’ of Christ. It is taken as good that vital life is also joyful, strong, and beautiful. It is accepted as profound that this corresponds to the motif and intention in life.
Truth: Contextualized statements on the structures within life. This is to be distinguished from ‘correctness.’ Any student can make a spark notes observation that’s ‘correct,’ but ends up as a half-truth in the long run. Conversely, creating frameworks of truth is another magnitude of difficulty. This is why we have almost none of it today, as journalists and academia manufacture snarky or righteously indignant critiques. On the other hand, antiquity felt their truths that “God is love” with the most total reverence. Like the lapping of a wave, true Truth is always part of a whole other ocean, flirting with us to continue into the mystery.
Beauty: The embodiment of high energy. Cities like Florence are perennial reminders of humanity’s totality. They radiate a lightness and enchantment with life more fundamental than ‘success.’ Art that doesn’t draw on this — which pursues ‘expression’ — is just eye candy in the long run.
Whatever this is — nihilism, the death of god, postmodernity — there are innumerable ideas for how to solve the milieu but one presumption: if we just tweak out the right ideology, all will fall into place. Individually, we tell ourselves the same story through ‘meaning.’
As for the cultural vectors at hand, however, I say: materialism once more, and cynicism for the language fetishists. I say: materialism but true to its promise. Blood is the beginning and end of all lasting pursuits. Materialism: but now with the biologist’s eye and the exhilaration and warmth of high life.
There’s a climate between piney Oregon and strip-mall Los Angeles only a Northern Californian of a certain variety can appreciate. Like greyhounds cornering a track, fog blows in from the Pacific and funnels into the Golden Gate. Rounding the elbow of the Bay, it trips and hurls itself onto Oakland and Berkeley, covering the towns in a grey shell of overcast that breaks as often as it doesn’t. Visitors often leave disgruntled. They wanted the Santa Monica pier. But the overcast is almost always around 50 to 60 degrees. …
The cafe I found had 4.5 stars and one ‘$’ on Google Maps. It was also adjacent a medieval little alleyway which fed into the Ufizzi square. I had a great sandwich there, so it was good value for someone bumming around like me.
“A six and a half, please,” I had asked the butcher.
“Scusi?”
“A six and a half?” I repeated, pointing at the menu, “A six point five?”
“Ah, seeeks point five, certo certo,” he confirmed.
He waved me to a cafe table next to the alleyway. It was in the shade of a castle type building…
In my last post on how I changed my mind this year, I wrote about capitalism and brought up some personal experience. Since this anecdote was one argument I made among others, it was necessarily short and pretty rhetorical. In this post, I’ll expand on it, mostly off the pitch that I’ve started on reflecting on things from a different angle digital nomadding and living out of my backpack.
When I graduated college, I just wanted to gobble New York up. What was to be gobbled? Who’d be involved…
Bourgeoisie Nihilism, the Efficient vs. the Effective, Promising Antitheses
Nietzsche once wrote that philosophy is the mere biography of it writers, rationalizations packaged in prose and complexity even for the authors who wholly believed themselves ‘impartial.’ Socrates insisted sex with little boys was spiritually pure? He also insisted that philosophy was the highest calling? Of course he would! Don’t ask the barber if you need a haircut.
To the degree some of my stuff approaches philosophy, some of my thinking has changed over the past year in-step with my lifestyle shift. From working full time in New York, I’ve started…
As with the creativity that comes from traveling, the need to approach writing with fresh eyes, or absence as the best aphrodisiac — some ideologies grow too close to a culture and need to be approached from the outside to be re-understood.
Specifically, what is Christianity to us today? As of late 2019, the general associations are to Kanye West, Republicans, and perhaps Joel Olsteen’s Prosperity Gospel. Optimistically, Christianity smells like decay. Pessimistically, it’s pastiche people cling to during American decline.
Though not to give its creators short thrift, it’s…
