    He is neither alive nor dead, but undead.Baden

    Now the question is "Is he still in the box?"

    SO I updated my profile picture - I'm not allowed to upload images here yet.

    My cup, as you can see, is now a hand-crafted ceramic, in shades of blue. The cat's mat has been upgraded to a scratching post, so Hanover, you are welcome to his old mat. Jack is pictured sharing my contempt for poor philosophy in its various forms.

    What of Landru Guide Us?

    I have concluded that the post-truth politics of Trump is all his fault.

    He should be here to defend himself.

    @Landru Guide Us joined a year ago but hasn't been seen for nine months. Things were pretty quiet at the time, so there probably weren't enough right-wing memes here to pique his ire.

    I agree that Trump is his fault.

    I don't think he would be very happy about it. Or than again he might be rejoicing in the existential freedom provided.

    P1: Banno is dead.

    P2: Banno was Australian.

    P3: The evidence here shows that he refuses to stop talking.

    Why "Banno was Australian" and not "Banno is Australian"? You seem to be implying that he isn't an Australian (any more). And if he isn't an Australian then he isn't a dead Australian. Therefore that he talks is not proof that dead Australians can talk.

    Can the dead have citizenship? If not then you can't be both dead and Australian.

    You don't lose your citizenship simply because you cease living.

    I've been reading Geneology of Morals (after Gay Science). Paying closer attention to the parts I sort of ignored before.. the blond Aryan conquerors versus the darker primitive people. The assessment of democracy is that it endangers the purity of the blond Aryans (who were universally blond for some reason). Communism is a monstrous reversion to a primitive social structure resulting from the rise of the darkies.

    So.. he said he dwelt with Schopenhauer to the point that it was just the two of them. That means he has to have known that the pale blond image is a myth.. a metaphor... a magic language that is bound to create pathos and pathology. Expression and creation are identical.

    Per N, the Buddhist longing for nothingness is the same as the Christian mystic's longing for union with God. He thinks both forms of mysticism are nihilism cults.
