Manosphere Philosophy: Lost in the Vastness of Space and Time


Looking outward from our tiny world with a Red Pill philosophy

Looking beyond our world for clues as to what the true meaning of life, if any, there actually is, we awaken to find ourselves lost in the midst of a vast universe on “a mote of dust, suspended in a sunbeam.” The universe is much older and bigger than anyone ever imagined, and it seems at times hostile and at times indifferent to human cares and concerns.

Men know this instinctively, while women never realize it. They never have to, for they’re not faced with the same challenges to survive and procreate that men are. Men must learn how cold and careless the universe is for there wil be no safety net to save him, but there will be men lining up to be White Knights saving a damsel in distress.

Focusing on our tiny world for a moment, trying to make sense of a world in which everything is a myth or a lie, in which women claim to be victims when they’re actually users and abusers of male utility value, and in which those who claim to have the loftiest aspirations for mankind actually display the most repulsive human behavior (i.e. the elite and political classes) is not easy.

Many find religion to be a refuge. For others, religions are only palliatives to ease the pain of living in a world in which survival at any cost has been the prime directive for 4.5 billion years.

For others, only rationality will do. Here’s a look at the hard and inconvenient facts science has revealed about the universe we have found ourselves fighting to survive.


If the entire history of the universe happened over the course of one year, here’s how it would play out (click image to enlarge)

We’re New to the Scene

Humans haven’t been around very long at all. In fact, advanced life hasn’t been around long enough to be significant in the grand scheme of cosmic time. When one condenses the entire history of earth down into the equivalent of one year, the briefness of our existence is thus revealed. Carl Sagan pioneered this method with his concept of the Cosmic Calendar:

The Cosmic Calendar is a method to visualize the chronology of the universe, scaling its current age of 13.8 billion years to a single year in order to help intuition in for pedagogical purposes in science education or popular science.

In this visualization, the Big Bang took place at the beginning of January 1 at midnight, and the current moment maps onto the end of December 31 just before midnight. At this scale, there are 437.5 years per second, 1.575 million years per hour, and 37.8 million years per day.

We find ourselves making our brief appearance on the scene in the last minutes of the last day of the year of the 4.5 billion year Cosmic Calendar. Humans appear on the scene only in the last couple million years, or the last seconds of the last minute of the last hour of December 31.

A single human life equates to one blink of an eye when cosmic history is condensed down into a year for illustrative purposes.

We are just now making our brief appearance on the cosmic stage, on a planet in which well over 99% of all species who ever lived are extinct.


Social engineering schemes designed by elites are just one of many ways our species’ time on earth could be limited

Are We a Flash in the Pan

Some call it evolutionary baggage. There is reason to believe our existence in the world could be abbreviated, thanks to a number of factors. Perhaps the most troubling of these is social engineering, which has reached a troubling level of manipulation of human behavior in the early 21st century.

We now have a state that seeks to groom worker bees and sexless androgynes from birth, as Cultural Marxism moves to break up the human family permanently and subjugate men eternally. This will no doubt weaken the human species, perhaps beyond the point of repair.

None other than Nikola Tesla warned against this troubling possibility, which modern social engineers working at the behest of the elite are foisting upon the West with rabid fervor.

Our civilization will sink to a state like that which is found among the bees, ants and other insects – a state wherein the male is ruthlessly killed off. In this matriarchal empire which will be established the female rules. As the female predominates, the males are at her mercy. The male is considered important only as a factor in the general scheme of the continuity of life.

Men indeed have become nothing but sperm donors and laborers rather than stakeholders in society over the past century. Male incentives and male ingenuity are also being extinguished by this plague upon humanity. Tesla continues:

Woman’s independence and her cleverness in obtaining what she wants in the business world is breaking down man’s spirit of independence. The old fire he once experienced at being able to achieve something that would compel and hold a woman’s devotion is turning to ashes.

We often hear violence will end the saga of the human species from liberals, but the threat from authoritarianism – which abuses science for personal profit and gain rather than using it to advance the human condition is perhaps an even bigger and more insidious threat to our long-term survival.


“What is your advice to young writers?” Bukowski responds: “Drink, fuck and smoke plenty of cigarettes.”

Best to Enjoy What Time We Have

As we consider these grand ideas, realizing the odds are stacked against us as we strive for long-term survival, perhaps another way to glean philosophy from science is to realize the fact everything dies. Even the sun will die someday, as it becomes a Red Giant and fades into White Dwarf status.

The message I get from the cosmos is that it is best to enjoy what limited time we have on this planet, while trying to make a positive impact on the lives of others. I do this by attempting to tell the truth about things, rather than promulgating the myths that robbed me of half my life – that women are perfect angels, men are evil sexual predators, that the government is god and has all solutions to the ails of humanity.

The West takes life way too seriously, as it reaches out towards an infinity it likely will never reach. Spengler knew this when he wrote Decline of the West. Author Charles Bukowski sums up a worthy men’s philosophy when realizing the reality of our circumstances on the cosmic stage:

We are here to unlearn the teachings of the church, state, and our educational system. We are here to laugh at the odds and live our lives so well that Death will tremble to take us.

More inspiring words I cannot find. Bukowski perfectly summed up the philosophy of the manosphere a full generation before it came about. Let’s endeavor to live those awesome lives, even in the face of a world and a universe not made for us.

  • There is and was micro evolution. Macro evolution is a fairy tale pushed by the media and elites. Much we do not know but this we do..

    There had to be an intelligent agent. Real simple. You can’t have life created from non life. Living systems are EXTREMELY complex. Real simple. The math proves this out. Having an extremely complex organism such as a dragonfly emanate from basically nothing is impossible unless there was an intelligent agent involved. Life can be created, but it would have to be directed by an intelligent agent. Accidents like that just don’t happen. The fossil record, which the media has completely corrupted, is just more evidence that there was not evolution. Species appear then completely disappear. Species which were declared extinct or gone 400 million years ago have been “discovered at different times over the last 200 hundred years. Coelacanth has stayed the same for 400 million years. Let the evolutionists hamster spin on that one.

    Look at the earth it stands out like a sore thumb in a black lifeless universe. Common sense should see the obvious. It is like walking through a forest with no signs of humanity for hundreds of miles then coming face to face with a building. Our intuition knows this building could not of happened by accident.

    Yes animals and humans have been hard wired with certain characteristics which passes on our DNA. It just makes sense. Unfortunately humans often time turn to their “animal” instincts and justify it with their so called logical brain. One thing is for sure, humans are more emotional than we lead on. Doing things like breaking away from the matrix take perception, fortitude and raw courage.


  • Bukowski was great. Pondering the meaningless of existence can mean utter depravity and the low consciousness we find among so many these days. The fire you speak of that men once had. I don’t think the flame has been extinguished yet. It burns within me.

    For some, knowing the truth and accepting it can vivify their souls. With open arms embracing our merciless fate will sever the chains withholding us from true power and freedom. I know that for me, while I live, breath and burn with fire I will do whatever it takes to rise above it all. I will assert my will into everything I possibly can. Or I will die trying.

    The free man hurdles forward with furious purpose. A destiny of his own design. Like Bukowski said. I will go so fucking hard that the earth may tremble to take me back when I return to dust.


    • Great sentiments, and a good article. I will have to read Bukowski. Some of the tenets described in the article are reminiscent of stoicism.

      I really enjoy this site. Keep it up. Love the shit about minimalism, philosophy, etc. I grew up with the shackles of organized religion, surrounded by corporate culture. I clawed my way up to a VP role in my 30s, only to discover it was all fucked. I literally sold the first 15 years of my adult life to the highest bidder.

      Life as a red pill man is better.

      Acknowledge the role of nature in your life, climb mountains, experience women, wonder at the beauty of the universe, cut a large swath through life, and someday, laugh when the reaper comes for you.
