Winning Not Allowed

Have you noticed how winning is not allowed anymore? That is, the narratives of winning have gone missing. Trump becomes the POTUS but complains how he has been ‘unfairly treated’. Taylor Swift is worth hundreds of millions of dollars but complains how male label executives oppressed her. There is absolutely nothing good about the Western Civilization (or any other one, for that matter).

There are no Noble Kings anymore, only losers whining and oppressors.

I understand the need to go beyond Good and Evil but it cannot be done by worshipping the Evil.

Nutty or Not?

^ This doesn’t seem nutty to me at all. Google is certainly capable of doing it, it has political reasons for doing it, there is no law preventing Google from doing it and it’s code is closed-source which means there is no way for anyone to independently verify whether or not they are doing it. It is at least reasonable to conjecture that they might be.

Chapman on Formality

Chapman assumes that this kind of formality is what comes ‘before’. And he might be right because this is exactly the kind of formality that is taught in schools. However, I think I started seeing things meta-rationally at a very young age. So much so that this kind of formality does not come naturally to me anymore. I am always aware of the context and purpose.

I struggled a lot because of this in college. In my freshman year at college, I remember asking a math professor the ‘meaning’ of the formalisms he was teaching. Upon getting the reply that it doesn’t mean anything, I was similarly befuddled. That was not because I was incapable of adopting a formalism in that way. It was because I knew that that wasn’t the whole story and was disappointed that the discussion of context and purpose was not part of the curriculum.

I feel like I’m better at meta-rational activity than I am at rational activity.
