Philosophy – “A Single Idiocy in Breaking from Tradition” – 7/13/2020

“The one beauty in this world, is the one worth protecting.”

– Modern Romanticism

From eating the skin of a salmon for “health benefits”, to making love in the morning when a man’s testosterone is highest, there seems to be an offset for what is traditional, in favor for what is “beneficial”. Nothing can be appreciated of its non-material value, when everything will simply benefit the form. We become scientific fools who do not even realize that our “arts” are not for the mind, though are for the form. The human body is the only thing optimized by repetition. To make an example of that, how often does the body need to be nourished so it does not starve? Often, and always. To its opposite, how often does a person’s mind need to be reminded of another’s love to them? Not at all, if the love has already been proven through a single act.

Repetition does not benefit the mind, like it benefits the human form. We break from tradition, only to place ourselves directly on the side of “utility”. It is because we will inevitably see the mind in terms of benefit to be “impractical” or “useless” of questioning what benefits the body. Why would anyone question that a person needs to eat, or drink water? Therefore, anything that benefits the mind will be useless, and therefore be given no vast audience to it. Though, when it comes to mass marketing for a large crowd, there will be everything for utility’s sake, and thus, everyone is like a pauper eager for consumption.

It is the exact reason why libraries and museums are not as “popular” as the video game industry or YouTube. Attentions spans, that have much relation to non-material relationships such as with romantic partnerships, will be lessened in favor of the physical, versus the metaphysical. The metaphysical, being of the mind, being of love, becomes less the focus, and the form becomes more the focus. It is to state that when love is seen as “highest”, it means just that. It is to say that a beloved should not be shortened of attention given to them, or else be more consumed with consumption, and everyone is a slave or tool.

Love is the only emotion that needs just a single act, a single dedication of proof, for it to be proven non-material in its value. And, for the remembrance of what is still valued by a beloved, that is the memory of when the love was proven.

Breaking from tradition seizes a person in their slow captivation, to be let on the lane that goes forth into fast and repeated so-called “progress”. Yet, we forget our minds, become stupid, even if science is on our side. The only value that truly exists in this world, is a one that doesn’t exist. As in, it isn’t craved. It is needed. That is, love is required to validate our existence. Anything from love, being of acceptance and appreciation, turns us from being invisible to being visible. Thus, we exist, through love. Because, when we are loved, we are seen. Though, it is only out of love that we are seen. See anything not through loving eyes, and one is seeing something so physical that it is disregarded of its human side.

Tradition represents value, though a slow one. Break from tradition, and one literally has broken something into fragments. Repeated fragments, of something so disordered as to be like pieces of bread, for the paupers who are the consumers.

    This is very well written and it highlights a deep issue. I think the mind needs to be trained like the body but a different type of training.

    You mention museum for not being very popular, that is we are not trained to go there and appreciate art. We have been trained by marketing and zapping.

      Whoever sides with love, sides with the mind. Whoever sides with lust, sides with the body. To whoever sides with addiction, among fast and repetitious consumptions, sides with division. That is, whoever brought into society a belief that quantity surpasses quality, is the promoter of our contemporary ways with division.

      There was a man, an architect, dubbed the “Father of Skyscrapers”, named Louis Henry Sullivan, who also quoted the words, “Form follows function”.

      To how beautiful a thing objectively looks, makes it more appreciated for its non-material essence. When it becomes all about material, then material decays and withers, because no one cares for objective ugliness. You look at slums, or what is now called the “inner cities”, and the reason why no one cares for them, is because they are rotting and ugly. No one wants to maintain a rotting structure, because it is like trying to raise a carcass back to life. It is simply buried and forgotten.

      Degenerates of society, such as those sickened by drugs, among the hoodlums, and the prostitutes, are attracted to these decrepit areas. Like birds of a feather, they are attracted.

      Louis Sullivan was nothing more than a man who enforced this, even beyond the grave, as bad of a pun as that is.

      Beauty matters, when beauty is protected. What, should we next say that no mother can protect her child? Should we say to the Liberal organizations that protect endangered species, that they should begin to neglect each animal under their care? What about Veterinarians? What about homeless shelters? What about children’s hospitals? What about the forests that every tree hugger wants to save?

      When a woman says that she is beautiful, she should know what beauty entails for it. Protection.

      As for the mind being trained like the body… it requires only love and protection, for the mind to be soothed. Yet, that is not what “generates an audience”.

      I once said that the 5 senses need to be divided into a 3 and a 2. Sight and hearing for love. Taste, touch, and smell for lust. Love and respect for the former. Craving and consumption for the latter.
