Towards A Greater Purpose
Please welcome Paracelsus to The New Modern Man.
What attracted you to the concepts of the Manosphere, or more precisely, why? Think about it while I tell you my motivations, because I can only speak for mine.
As Nicolo Machiavelli stated in his Discourses, men from whatever age tend to look on earlier times more fondly than those of their present age. Seeing history as more dignified and illustrious than the moment they live in. To be perfectly honest I can’t help but feel those feelings of nostalgia myself from time to time. Even as I sit here with an excellent edition of The Bhagavad Gita in one hand and a smartphone in the other, I can’t help but feel that something is missing. The vague sense that something indefinable and profound is absent, but what is it?
My first introduction to the Manosphere came as an article posted on Facebook years ago when I still participated in it. I don’t exactly recall the article, but I do remember that it was on Return of Kings and that it deeply resonated with me. The article wasn’t about pickup directly, but all articles dealing with human nature, and all that deal with male and female interactions do, in an indirect way. For better or worse pickup and game are necessary. It changes you and makes you better in ways that extend far beyond the ability to score pussy.
For those with a philosophical bent I assume that you already have a generally higher awareness than those around you, and certainly a greater intellect. But, this doesn’t always equate to a greater effect on the world. Quite often introspection and philosophical rumination is merely cognitive masturbation. Pickup and game, though often maligned by the MGTOW community as a shallow, meaningless pursuit for mere physical gratification can be much much more. Game/pickup is actually a mirror through which the world views you. Game is how you influence those around you, both male and female. A suave and charismatic man who can pickup women can easily lead other men. Game extends beyond carnal gratification and teaches you truths about the world. Often, such truths are uncomfortable, some are even downright painful.
Since time immemorial men have pursued women, built monuments, fought wars, killed, and certainly died in the pursuit of women. In fact this modern world has become a monument in and of itself for the gratification of women. Sitting here at Starbucks I look around and estimate that at least seventy percent of the people at this location are women. Some are attractive, a few are unfortunately un-attractive, but most are plain. Yet, all of them are women, and as such some man will come along at some point to provide for them. Not a single woman here today will have to go down to the river and wash clothes by hand. I highly doubt any of them will have to kill a chicken, pluck its’ feathers and then butcher it tonight. But I digress, the average Western womans’ life is defined by ease, comfort, luxury, and especially consumption.
However, the world being as it is is such a highly malleable and reactive environment, nothing happens in a vacuum. All of these feminine traits (which have been corrupted) are starting to infect modern men to some degree or another. The easy, decadent life is starting to crop up in male character. A life of austere and Spartan values has been supplanted by a life of conspicuous consumption and unbridled avarice. Eventually though, the life of luxury begins to wear thin, a soft bed leads towards a soft body, and a soft body leads towards a soft spirit.
This is where I found myself returning to when I found the Manosphere. Reading an article that was fortuitously stumbled upon when I was searching for something greater, for my purpose. As a man you instinctively know when you aren’t moving towards your purpose. However enticing, things, awards, accolades, and especially women are merely a byproduct of that purpose. That vague sense of searching for something is the tradition that “modern man” is severely lacking. It is why we are lost, and it is the void we fill with useless possessions and trivial pursuits.
Today it came as no coincidence that I picked up my copy of The Bhagavad Gita to read through earlier. The reason was, today I had a battle to fight, and I needed to seek counsel with God before I did so. Yet, I’m not so special or unique, all men woke up today to do the same exact thing. As a man your battle is your life, and you wage bitter ceaseless war against it until the day you die. All sages, mystics, and philosophers have attested to this inalienable fact in their own verve since the dawn of recorded history. They have recognized the great tendencies of human beings and exposed them for what they were. Even the least of them have noticed the very obvious differences between males and females and the motivations arising from them.
Generally, women seek comfort and men seek challenge, the more time you spend around people the more you can corroborate this assertion. Learning such truths about human nature can often lead to the state of “red pill rage.” You can find yourself enraged that people only dealt in platitudes, that you had been deceived your entire life. But eventually the rage subsides when you learn that no-one lied to you, and no-one intentionally deceived you. As with most things you were only deceiving yourself. You believe only that which you chose to believe from the level of awareness you have at any given moment.
What use is it convincing a woman that feminism is a decadent philosophy designed to corrupt feminine value and virtue? Or telling a SJW that true Justice is an intrinsic value gained from hard earned wisdom? The meaning people who deceive themselves gain from life is the sanctimonious feeling that they are right. For those with greater wisdom however, the meaning of life is work. A life lived in service of a purpose, an ideal, an aspiration to create. It is the polar opposite to consumption, which is – at its best- a passive action. History shows a record of the greatest men in the world to be producers, inventors, and artists. Those who left an immortal record and legacy of their brief time here. Their greatness extending far beyond their corporeal vessel in spirit and in form.
As a man you inherit the spirit of THE Creator, never lament the state of the world. You are a man, and you have within yourself the the power to change it. In my research of the “great conspiracies” I have often felt impotent to change the world until I came to an even greater epiphany. It is that throughout time there have been men like Nikola Tesla, Viktor Schauberger, and John Ernst Worrell Keely. And there have been those vast un-named and unknown cowards to oppose them. This vast conspiracy of cowards was required to mount any resistance against genius. They knew that a single great man possessed of great vision can conquer the world. Countless men have done so, and countless men stand poised to do so again.
Amongst great men there is the tradition to change the world they don’t agree with, that doesn’t suit their vision. Personally I can’t work a 9 to 5 because I have more to offer than simple interchangeable tasks that anyone can be trained to do. I have unique and original works of art to contribute. I have to tell the world that the Giza Pyramid complex was actually an ancient powerplant. That this ancient powerplant complex used a form of physics and mathematics unknown to modern science and that it was hidden in the very architecture of the structure. And this is just one of the many areas of investigation I hold dear to my heart. There is thousands of years of clumsily suppressed history and knowledge that stands waiting to be unveiled!
So, when you read articles in the Manosphere and the around the internet in general, don’t give in to pessimism. Have faith that to those with stolid and unwavering resolve the world eventually does relent. The new modern man and the archaic man of distant antiquity are exactly the same. Both are men, and both seek to conquer the world and bend it to their will.
