Do atheist not embrace spiritual actions or engage in ways to improve the psyche? Sure you may not believe in gods or a god but do you engage in spiritual acts of meditation find motivation within your soul? A spiritless entity is a soulless entity and I claim, boldly, atheism is nothing but the religion of the degenerate and lost among those who do not partake in spiritual actions amongst themselves.

For you atheist I recommend to search for peace(like Schopenhauer) in the Vedanta for an intro try Guenon.

Just finished Anti-Oedipus the other day, starting 1000 Plateaus right now and I'm wondering if this guy got the memo about Kant. Where does he take his whole ontology from? At no point does he back up any of the bold claims he keeps making. Am I missing something?

How so? According to SEP he works in a post-Kantian framework in D&R. Now I haven't read D&R, but in C&S he seems to have reverted to some kind of Spinozan panpsychic materialism and I can't figure out how that's compatible with Kant's central problematic.

>> No.13002812

Read his lecture series on Kant, available online. His entire system derives from transcendental empiricism, his inversion of Kant's schematic

>> No.13002881

Deleuze's virtual is a transcendental category empty of forms but still containing difference (probably partially derived from Leibniz, probably even Trinitarian theology in how an unindividuated virtual can still be characterised by multiplicity, and if Deleuze is to have his way Bergson), a elegant 'organic' solution to not falling into the trap he sees with Kant for one. Key to this solution is that individuation is a process which occurs after something has emerged into our everyday empirical realm, probably cribbed from Simondon and a redirect from the waning fashionability of Existentialism's essence-existence etc.

Deleuze is one of the top "I've already considered that and here's my workaround" philosophers of all time. A huge part of his philosophy just comes about trying to avoid falling into so many pitfalls which others before him have. I think that more than anything is why his language is so ephemeral, he doesn't want to say too much but has to account for a lot.

>> No.13002885

You know he wrote an entire book on Kant, right?

It's so sunny.

I don't know how I managed to wake up at 9 am and leave the house at about 2.45 pm without doing much in-between.

I had burger king yesterday, McDonalds a few days ago, and I'll have one of those or KFC today. I haven't gone to the gym for about two or three days.

It's the same mental pattern everyday. Large sorry or sadness in my brain causes me to have one last binge and then I'm happy.

Audrey: What Jane Austen novels have you read?

Tom: None. I don’t read novels. I prefer good literary criticism. That way you get the novelist’s idea as well as the critic’s thinking. With fiction I can never forget none of that has really happened. It’s all made up by the author.

Listen! I recently found this gem of an an awefuckingsome band called Hello Kitty Suicide Club that y'all folks need to just shut up and listen to. Yes... I'm okay... yes *yes* and *no*. Many tears were shead on the night I realized they were utterly super duper after years of not being able to endure more than a few minutes, thinking "this is just me". Could the same thing have happened to you, good sir? Ditto that? Let that sink in. Your flawed human brain automagically nailed it to the metaphorical wall of "this is why we can't have nice things" level dipshittery. You ought to tell your brain -
brain, you had one job!" Kudos to you for going back and listening to HJSK. After, you will be able to respect yourself, and, why yes, maybe even like yourself. Yay for you. Nope, wait, is it actually shit? Literally no. Duh. Just thought I'd throw a little curveball in there to leave your mind=blown. What? You're mad at me disrespecting Hello Kitty Suicide Club? That escalated quickly, you magnificent bastard. Looks like I nailed it. Faith in humanity restored? Uhm... no sweetie... There is not one mississippi, two mississippi, or even five. The time I have left to write this is in the red, and to go on any other website now, well that's a risky click. Let that sink in. I'm definitely doing this to fuck around, but I have to go to work. Kudos to you for taking the time to listen to me whine, my good sir. It's caled being a decent human being, and I hope you have a super duper day.
