posted 10 Jan 2008, 06:01 in The Warrior ProphetCnaiur question by Uroborian Circles, Candidate

I'm not sure what the pieces are referring to... but want to say it's in reference to Moenghus or at least something discussed in another flashback... As for: "Someone. He was forgetting to hate someone." It's the start of a new paragraph. New subject. I would say this doesn't refer to anyone in particular. Probably reference to the fact that he uses his hate to overcome his pain. view post

An article by Nietzsche as an introduction to a chapter of another book. From "On The Genealogy Of Morals" in regard to the the anti-Christ and anti-nihilist. The victor over god and nothingness. Very poetic, that piece. My poor Catholic sensibilities... view post

I think it's safe to say that Cnaiur's sexuality is, in part, what makes him so interesting and tragic. I don't think it has as much to do with his desires but his conflict. Imagine being what he is... I wouldn't think that war-worshiping plainsmen are to accepting of homosexuality and, being one of them, neither would he. Not to mention the nature of his first lover. Ever had a girlfriend that played mind games? He came-out to a Dunyain... It's sad. I mean the guy's not exactly afraid of getting his ass kicked. Or death. Or suffering. He's the Breaker-of-Horses-and-Men. Those are small things to him and he justifiably emanates a [i:gebf5ooz]sincere[/i:gebf5ooz] feeling of superiority over the wine drinking, word writing, self-righteous, effeminate bitch-men who would label themselves his peers. And yet... that automatic and inbred feeling of weakness at the notion that he's [i:gebf5ooz]just a faggot[/i:gebf5ooz]. view post


posted 10 Jan 2008, 07:01 in Author Q & AWhy did the Dunyain learn how to fight? by Uroborian Circles, Candidate

[quote="Mandati Wannabe":1qsiiy31]I always thought it was just because the Dunyain also seem to have a side-mission of mastering all avenues of thought, so to speak. All skills, all trades, everything is mastered by the Dunyain (except sorcery, as they don't accept its existence).[/quote:1qsiiy31] Or history. They could have benefited from a sense of [i:1qsiiy31]humility[/i:1qsiiy31] as well. I suppose logicians wouldn't be able to find a root for that though... :roll: view post


posted 10 Jan 2008, 08:01 in The Warrior ProphetLogos is theft by Uroborian Circles, Candidate

Any man who would utilize reason and rationality should also make use of mercy and compassion. My friend calls me on the phone telling me that his mother is very sick in the hospital and he needs someone to keep him company. For me to do so would be irrational because I'd have to take off of work and I desperately need the money. And yet... I do it anyway. You have to question yourself: "Well this [i:1i2yuj85]is[/i:1i2yuj85] the right thing to do... but it's insane! It's impractical. To do so would be foolish." "Well this is the logical thing to do... but it's heartless. It's selfish and unforgiving." The serpent beneath you will show you [i:1i2yuj85]the shortest path[/i:1i2yuj85] through the forest. It will lead you to many places and reveal many things and take you to thresholds of understanding that most will never pass through. A guardian is needed above you however. One that pulls you back from those thresholds just before entering so as to say, "Enter. Know much. Pass on... Beware of everything you stand to lose though. There is alchemy that turns the lead spirit into gold and there is alchemy that turns the lead spirit into shit." Balance in all things is [i:1i2yuj85]the highest path[/i:1i2yuj85], if not the shortest. You may not reach your destination quicker... But you'll be awarded a better view for the journey. view post

Eh... Semantics. I suppose you could argue that nobody is entirely homosexual or heterosexual. Born or Bred... Attraction versus Repression... In the end Serwe was primarily illustrated as his [i:3n7lv37f]proof[/i:3n7lv37f] more than his passion. Moenghus was drawn as the one he gave his heart to, the one he really loved. In violent opposition to his more customary brides. Let's leave the brain chemistry of homosexuality out of this regardless, as no one knows enough about it anyway (I'll stick with Alfred Kinsey on the subject). Not to mention, to the horror of all, we might inadvertently draw the attention of some [i:3n7lv37f]idealist[/i:3n7lv37f]. Like sharks tasting blood anytime they have the prospect of spouting they're conveniently unverifiable and self-righteous anti-truths. Just another black road to Nihilism. "Lets destroy everything!!! Because it's not [i:3n7lv37f]good enough[/i:3n7lv37f]." view post

The entry for them in the back of TTT says they are indeed hairless. With faces (bone-white if I remember right) beautiful to the point of being repulsive. [b:mnvammt0][i:mnvammt0]"And very very fast. If you can't even outrun them on horses, as is mentioned in the books, well that's just scary."[/i:mnvammt0][/b:mnvammt0] :shock: That is pretty scary... view post

[quote="Shell":2ml812gs]If we say that his violence towards females may indicate repressed homosexuality, then the entire Scylevendi culture would be repressed as wife beating/raping seems to be the norm.[/quote:2ml812gs] Faulty logic. Repression for one could be convention for another. Or both. Or neither. Also... for clarification purposes maybe we should dump homosexual, bisexual, homo-erotic tendencies and all the rest in a basket called "gay." view post

I imagined Akka to be more like this (minus the getup and with Akka's beard). [img:2yyxdavb]http://a77.ac-images.myspacecdn.com/images01/76/l_caab1ce12d2fa6c28869d25b75f0efac.jpg[/img:2yyxdavb] view post

Aside from the ones mentioned some others I wanted to point out: -Eleazaras and Iyokus. Their conversations had a lot of depth and were very entertaining to me. (Tho most of that stems from TWP tbh) -The Synthese and "Sarcellus." [b:tfi0mw85]Wow[/b:tfi0mw85]... I mean... I don't even no where to go with them. My personal favorite: Cnaiur view post

Yes... Well said Angainawen. I'm in a bi-sexual love-triangle myself and have a general interest in libido. The Inchoroi captivate me much the same although in a somewhat less... empathetic way. [quote="Angainawen":14shkvd1]can "psyche" be plural???[/quote:14shkvd1] Not if your Carl Jung... :wink: view post
