fucking based desu

>> No.14136528

This guy single-handedly makes me ashamed to be associated with anyone related to the traditionalist school. He is so arrogant it isn't even a meme, it is just pathetic. I am literally laughing at the thought that such a horribly tattooed fat literal-who on YouTube considers himself to be the recipient of divine sophia. I don't know how he became associated with Rama Coomaraswamy when Rama is so mellow and understated in his interviews.

>> No.14136566

oh get over yourelf already

>> No.14136575

He's American. What did you expect? Americans can't receive divine sophia, only divine McChickens.

What is a divine McChicken exactly

>> No.14136596

McChickens are divine because they're only $1 each and 2-3 of them can fill you up. Best food for the money.

Thank you for the wisdom. I must've missed that in his reviews of Shankara

I knew that from the start on his commentaries on Plotinus. You can tell by Ken's words, actions and thoughts that he does not take Plotinus to heart. Wheeler brags about sex. Plotinus held celibacy to be the highest form of human existence and thought the loss of seed was harmful. Ken Wheeler's gluttony and unchastity makes me dismiss him as a neoplotinus entirely, and see him as a pseud hobbiest that talks the talk, but does not walk the walk.

>> No.14136702

shut up leaf
it's still a good amount of cals, protein, etc. for $1

>> No.14136724

wait, america doesn't have the junior chicken? or is your McChicken a junior chicken? how does Canada have more burgers than burgerland

>> No.14136732

mcchicken is your junior mcchicken
there is no other mcchicken here
but again it's $1 for 370 cals 15g protein
best fast food deal

He is well-read, that´s for sure.

>Wheeler brags about sex.


>> No.14136759

Yeah gonna need to see a source on this

>> No.14136802

I don't think he's a traditionalist as such, he only mentions coomaraswamy, he's also said he doesn't want anything to do with religion, so he seems to simply be a Neoplatonist.

>> No.14136827

This guy rants about almost nothing for ten minutes, interspersed with bragging and insulting others. very annoying imo

>> No.14136837

If you are aware of the Jason incident, Ken allegedly messaged him about and told him he was having sex followed by an Emjoi. This said, I hate Jason, and could see it being fabricated. I also have nothing against Ken's photography opinions in general, so if he didn't claim to be a neoplatonist, I would not have thought much of it. He's also referred to photography objectives as "porn" before, which not only serves by extension to endorse the toleration of an immutable evil (i.e. actual pornography), but an insult if you actually know Ancient Greek because porne = whore, so to apply "porn" to anything from "food porn" to "glass porn", is to actually denigrate the subject matter. All of this show his soul is polluted and will never be unified with any of Plotinus's thogut.

>> No.14136838

Yeah, sometimes I think he's insane, he repeats himself alot

I can't take fat metaphysicians seriously. Maybe a little pudgy, but Ken's level, ehhh

What a 'coincidence', he's Livestreaming right now

>> No.14136939

Then hopefully he sees this thread and addresses it.

>> No.14136943

One question, do you think you are what you do?

>> No.14137165


>could see it being fabricated

this most likely the answer

>but an insult if you actually know Ancient Greek...

this is an unusual criticism, is he supposed to completely abandon any vernacular to show how holy he is? he might be dismissive of some ethical issues but i don't agree with your conclusions
