    Bertrand Russell talks about the Buddha and Nietzsche. I think I posted this on the last forum. Take it for what it's worth.


    On a side-note, I once heard somewhere that Russell called Nietzsche "an Aesthete for War-mongering" or something like that.

    LOL. Who do you think would win in a fight?

    The only good thing Russell ever did was that Vietnam tribunal.

    Cringing at some of the stuff I posted in this forum years ago. I'll probably cringe at stuff I write now in a couple years.

    Anyway, I came across this video. Watts seems to display a rather TM ethos. His Occ doesn't seem particularly big but his psych profile fits enough I would argue.


    Rather Taoist. Feminine, yielding, fluid, "Go with the flow" of nature. Occipital flows and meanderings uninterrupted by the sometimes hard binaries of Deepsock.

    If you don't cringe at the earlier stuff you haven't grown and matured as a person. You're doing it! You're making it happen! xD

    Koanic once said in an old blog post that TMs and starkids interregulate one another. A sort of humanizing clearcalling (I thought this was an established word but it seems I made it up- I intend it to mean a sort of forthright Gordian knot cutting amidst an air of tension by voicing the repressed natural response) seems characteristic of he TM complement to value weaving. It's empathetic even in non-widespace cases. Melon perspective taking coupled with thallish anthrophilia (acute, of course).

    Edit: lmao he touched on (obviously without possibly realizing) Ling's theory of cell structure (i.e. ordered water). This makes the implied Bruce Lee quote all the more perfect.

    To further the combat bent induced by the above, I've been ruminating recently on the importance of eccentric contraction to striking, and moreover how inducing it pre-contact by the antagonist (in a way contigent upon coordinating based on local conditions, of course) seem to instinctually develop in fighters.

    As you can tell I'm going full AH here. I think you can handle it.

    Fourth image down shows at least biggishocc. Scrolling through the 3rd image slot shows socket depth in the 4th or 5th shot. The image addresses cannot be copied or I'd just post them here.

    I have to wonder mechanistically if muscle tension, however slight/unconscious/delocalized (i.e. "fighting the pain"), might impede dissipation of nerve conductivity which would bring said pain to a faster end.

    I feel that TM's can sometimes have a way of "sneaking" Occ ideas and agendas among melons and to the public.

    A full blown TT trying to explain what Watts explains would do so in a more unacceptable or misunderstood way to the public and establishment.

    TMs have the necessary charisma to present and champion Occ-ism to the public.
