Introduction: Tat Tvam Asi, “Thus Art Thou.”
Heraclitus says All is Fire. The Leftists like this “All is One” business. It appeals to their “no boundaries” mantras: no borders, no sex, no species. Differences are “irrelevant” because produce hierarchy.
Why then did this “All is one” teaching produce unrelenting hierarchical caste systems?
Online speculations re. Himmler: quora.com/Why-does-Heinr…
Himmler carried around Bhagavad Gita?I think the point of all this is: there is an enduring concern on the Right for the “fire of life” and many looked East for this. Why though? What is this EX ORIENTE LUX meaning?
BAP now talk Schopenhauer. It is through him that the East is most accessible today.Yes, Schopenhauer was a Hobbesian Monarchist Liberal, but these alignments mean different things in different times. You can see how he aligns with Right today through his Wrathful Eloquence directed agst Left Hegelian types of this time.

She fought Christianity in India. The Indians rejected Christianity. The similarities in beliefs were not enough to bridge Semitic view of animal as utterly different from man, mechanical & soulless.

Alliance between Christianity and the Nietzschean / Pagan Right. Don’t let glow jigs manipulate you into self-defeating antagonisms.
If the Trads were really courageous they would denounce liberation theo & it’s images.
Houellebecq’s book: amazon.com/Presence-Schop…The German Idealistic tradition (Kant, Hegel) came to an end with Schopenhauer. Just so, a near-scholastic tradition came to an end with the Buddha.
Abstractions must give way to dedication. What the Buddha taught was a way, that made its appearance as a religion. Reason is the latest and therefore weakest development in the animal “man.” Recapturing man’s true path means recapturing his animal innocence.
Nature is hidden by the accumulated detritus of false philosophy and religion. Reason has become the tool of domestication-partisans. The Buddha discipline… look, he was not surrounded by Stone Age Heroes. Nevertheless it is a practice set up AGAINST the household, the place of filth.
Why do men become listless? Look at animal: animals lose their vitality and innocence when they are TRAPPED. Nietzsche Gay Science #99: nietzsche.holtof.com/reader/friedri…
Wagner saw his works as a companion to Schopenhauer, tried to incorporate Buddhist themes into German Christianity.
But Buddhism’s central insight that leads to Nirvana need not lead that way and doesn’t always.
Nirvana, Moksha, Ataraxia all have the flavor of equanimity through renunciation. Freedom from the stream of existence.
The fact is that the popular mind reinterprets the concepts in this religious way, but is not their source or original meaning. 3 points:
1) Perceiving part … of brain is full of intelligence.
2) Systems of silence: inborn ways of willing, character–ways of perceiving World.
3)Primordial will is behind all things. It has morphed and entered the stream of existence, time, becoming.
Nirvana (abolition); Orgasm (affirmation) The moral conclusions (for abolition) are not the only conclusions that can be drawn. Affirmation is there as well.
