CS student here, one of chapters in Fanged Noumena is interview with some proffesor, supposedly specialist in area of cryptography or coding or something like that.

He obviously changes the professors name as to not expose him in anyway, whether he said something good or bad its always a safe move to change peoples names to not deal with any issues in the future, most publishers force writers to do this regardless.

What did you honestly expect? Especially if you're serious about the fascist side of it. Either you're playing devil's advocate, or you actually agree with that sort of thing, but either way, its not a healthy working relationship with academia. You poked the bear, man. You'll come across like a jabbering lunatic. Slam poetry is one thing but at least it provides a space with predictable/digestible themes and ideas. Academic philosophy by rights shouldn't engage with this kind of thing.

I have really good relationship with my professor and honestly I thought and still think what Moldbug (his ebooks are insanely good) and Land have to say are ground breaking philosophies I may have fit the crazy lunatic category when I insisted some of my friends to read a few articles to just trial it I even went to the extent to sending blog links to my phil. group chat consisting of a few friends in the class, its like everyone's blue pilled and wants to stay that way

Moldbug is a smug contrarian boomer and Land is pretty much set on the idea that philosophy is a way to deepen unknowing, which is a philosophy incompatible with academia. Whether or not you think those thinkers have value may overlap with the fact that they both suggest very dangerous ideas. Universities won't risk their credibility by promoting it.

read most of moldbugs book but patchwork is his best imo

and I say if you read alot of the links above and just scroll through the old accelerationist/Nrx megathreads regardless of understanding the substance you'll be able to piece together alot of shit in your reading of FN, read old land for more horror stuff, read #accelerate if you want to grasp the basics good despite it being outdated and the wikipedia page for accelerationism is pretty good although its short.

I won't post my blog here among the shit I linked above to not look like a psued and obvious reasons

Unless you read SIEGE and pledge allegiance to the acausal Body of Kalki will be posting pictures of yourself in thigh highs within six months.

It is my sincere belief that the real Vindex will never make himself known. He will be the most pedestrian being, merely setting off a chain of effects from the slightest of actions. A mere bottle left in the street in the right place would be enough for him. Or perhaps a seemingly harmless book written. Everyone is waiting for the rise of the Vindex, but I feel the real Vindex will never be seen coming, even by the most acutely aware of adherents, as befits necessity.

Is Accelerationist writings something you can only make sense of after covering all major works in philosophy ? Or is it self contained?

>> No.12764885

>>12764880
some people can grasp the rambling really well without too much background in philosophy but it certainly helps, a lot. Not necessary at all as if you read Land you'll be easily influenced enough to go back and read Kant,Nietzsche,Marx,Deleuze and some sci-fi stuff

OP was philosophy major so he probably absorbed accelerationism like a sponge combining all the philosophers hes studied

I really don't know how to say this kindly, but I think someone in the thread should. I read through a couple of the posts from 'moldbuggery.' You actually find this stuff compelling and/or plausible at all? I don't know how to put this next part, but I'm a grad student in philosophy at a top 20pgr school and I'm into and down with weird stuff. It's not that the conclusions here strike me as radical or so-evil-that-we-shouldn't-consider-them or whatever it's that they poorly argued for. And not in the rhetorical sense, but the evidence doesn't provide adequate support for the conclusion sense. I'm not gonna get into specifics in this post, but I will if you want. I can't help but suspect that you're into this stuff for silly reasons, reasons that have little to do with truth.

Okay so I got into accelerationism a few months ago, I read some Xenosystems posts and I bought Fanged Noumena. Everything was going great, I made a Gnon worship group on discord and we practiced some qwertology and tried to summon a few of the lesser cyber demons but someone posted a rar called Grimes_nudes and I downloaded it and opened it accidentally and now ALL two of my bitcoins are gone and my computer won't stop playing John Stewart episodes in the background. I'm so fucking pissed off, that was literally all my student loans I was waiting for them to recover in value now I'm fucking broke and probably going to get evicted because apparently I kept everyone last speed binge listening to Kode-9 and croaking at the top of my lungs. Fuck Nick Land, fuck bitcoin, fuck discord. I'm going back to being a fucking communist.
