An Excursion Beyond the Ouroboros

One of the best, most professionally cast games by Gyle, very well done.  In congruity to this the players, two of the "OG"s of the game, and two of its top players, play with a finesse, precision, and ingenuity which are so masterful as to make the units themselves appear to be more "real", as if acting according to a potential which is more lifelike and intelligent down to their every step, where they go, when they stop, etc.  Their level of skill at micro-management along with macro-strategy are so precise and interactively gauged that it resembles the level of chess at which grandmasters of that game uniquely practice.  One wonders about these "pros", whether they were not in some way commenting on the game, and playing it, as though their very SOULS depended upon it.  One wonders if they would ever investigate the fates of their own souls as if their souls depended upon THAT.  Some possibly do.  

It's such a pity then that the rating system of this wonderfully designed modification to the original game, whether that rating system might not have been better designed to describe the strategic and cooperative substance of players and integrate that into their rating.  It might give a better climate for people who give a damn about the art and science of a cooperative game (when it IS team based), and who could actually play in the spirit of camaraderie and warriorship, even if only in such a way as can be squeezed out of a possibly very morally and physically unfit human being who may be at the computers involved. 

 But this game, any game, any activity which can contain or express the ideas of "excellence", are flawed with the subtle hubris of those involved, like all else in life, so that it can be rather easily derailed into the activity of proletarian-minded, spiritually crippled hylopsychic hominids.  Like so much else in our Ziodegradable "culture", it is a quicksand marsh of moral mush, with only a noxious effect on the spiritual sense of a True Person.

In the ages of decay, even excellence itself will become a mockery of the virtues it would have in a Golden Age been a token which vouched for their veritable proof of substance.  It must be owing to the format of this "New School" chess.  When the game is symmetrically "1 v 1" it is somewhat indistinguishable from two supercomputers playing each other (it is excellence almost altogether disembodied from the men themselves as such), and in team games, where bodies no longer inhibit the full expression of the good or vile natures of the persons involved, gives the maximum advantage to those truly capable of cooperation IN SPIRIT from those who are only banding together as a common extension of disparate egos.  It is that same hylic egotism that prevents the game designer to have bothered about such qualitative enhancements of the game which, in team play, would be programmable to give a reward peculiar to fact that better team play enables better team wins, and all other things equal MORE team wins for the team that does this better.

That is not only an unusual and valuable confluence of might AND right that one would think an intelligent method of signifying that could have been invented by that designer.  Unfortunately, it is probably beyond his ego's comprehension of things and values, so it cannot be understood well enough in the first place so that it could even begin to be translated into the required algorithms.  One would have rather hoped it were merely a lack of understanding of how to design such algorithms in computer language!  It is by the lack of a sense of MORAL SPIRITUAL AESTHETIC in such people that such qualitative aspects of anything humans do requires in order to be authentic and appreciable cannot be recognized, evaluated, and safeguarded by thought, word and deed.  In other words, they are proven, "even" in the sport of playing games of the most abstractly unphysical sort, to lack a truly religious sentiment within them, nor a proper conviction even for the real spirit of sportsmanship and warriorship.

The lack of such insights in people is the source of all corruption.  Their inability to properly respond to such are a cause for their tendency to hate and sometimes even actively persecute those who do possess it.

Still, there is a potential sense of "excellence" in this game, especially in this very battle here.  Games used to be integral parts of societies, and they used to enable social time to be filled with exposure to each other's spirits and their expressions.  In platforms like this, but also in an age of technocratic spiritual suppression generally, excellence is merely a "sheen" of itself, a mockery of itself.  It is like a unicorn which wanders in a forest as though "free" but in reality is in giant but well-secured cage of some kind.  It is NOT, on the face of it, truly a free being which it is meant to symbolize, except as this very symbol: something which SHOULD be free, is the ESSENCE of freedom, but is in chains, like on the coats of arms of many who take themselves to be "noble" (an opinion which crass society also seems to possess for some reason...).  The noblest of the crass, maybe?  In any event, the parasite in the brain of a parasite!  Maybe that would better describe their "position above others" in a truer fashion.

But that is an absurdity which is reflective of reality, not to be lightly disdained as to its truth value, rather than that, it should be judged by the value implied in how that truth is rendered.  So how absurd the modern human, who seems in some odd sense able to show a notion of value, virtue, and even excellence, but who in the end cares not one wit for a wider notion of moral values which actually faces the truths of a systemically evil society, and if left to its own devices and even one other righteous being, could form a true society right there with none of the abuses and pointless conflict of those societies they could gladly do without.

In other words, if a ratings system which tests for what qualities in a player makes him more worth playing WITH, then a proper contest between TEAMS (enemy armies) could take place, where virtue would be better rewarded in battle, and yielded more and better victories, at least insofar as such games could be invented which make such contests possible.  In other words, it would be a game which favored the "good" who can better form societies to begin with, and it would be a game which better fit into the spirit of such a society and its games, and more generally its culture.  We live in a world where all such societies are fundamentally sabotaged, both by "nature" as matter and "invention" as the spiritual essence or that mockery of the expressions of such an essence by another spirit.

In a contest between two such spirits, only "the real thing" would win.  Understanding this, and respecting it in all our behaviors, ritual or not, is what Spirituality MEANS.  But most humans are proven incapable of this.  But there is a strange residue of such proprieties in what humans actually do, but only "virtuous" in the same way that the disembodied and stuffed skin of an animal is "like" that animal...  And if virtue is really so manifested in this world when it is "at large" within it, then we have a very evil world, one which is surely the closest thing to hell known to good men, and one in which this very fact is even celebrated by the perverse mob, and actively affronted by their culture and, in semi-secret, desecrated as a religious act in the privacy of the homes of all, whether peasant or overlord.  If this is their "reality", it is less real than nothingness, because it is significantly less desirable for anyone with a true Moral Sense.  They'd rather "sleep through it" than live IN it.  But this is just as far beneath the dignity and worth of such a True Being that it would rather make a MOCKERY of that MOCKERY until this ends, if necessary, in its own oblivion.  It turns out that it will not, but will be the very bridge to His Origin.

So rather than ooh and ahh about the "excellent qualities" which can be seen in this game (and the Supcom Engine), I'd rather hone in on the spiritual rot which pervades it, as with all other parts of culture and society.  I'd rather put that EVIL to the question than pat it on its back's "good" part.  To be consistent, one must do this, or else compromise with, and succumb to, evil.  Only by preserving this alienation from what is evil can what is Good ever have hope of regaining an environment in which it truly belongs, where all that is possible for it is as much nobler than "nothing at all" than "nothing at all" is greater than this "worst of all possible worlds" at its root ontic through to its outer and manifest levels of phenomena, and that is to say by orders of infinities beyond those with which we are mathematically familiar, because they are Living and fully Qualified Existences, which are far beyond the "elohim" that these hylo/psychic anthropods uphold as their "Jehova".  Spiritual Men take their every act in this context, and are one with a Godhead completely antivalent to whatever crapsack entity behind THIS world in THIS universe!

We are NOT one, and every aspect of physics and culture, if forced through the sieve of a structure which favors TRUE excellence over its imitation, we would not only move toward a culture which is benign to Spiritual Men, but even capable of being expressions of such societies as are comprised of them.  Perhaps, after a few generations of such sincere civilization they would even BE such a society. That can no longer happen in this world, and if it could happen at all then certainly not openly so.

This is the REAL meaning of "As Above, So Below" which the New Thought Light Belaborers cannot properly understand since they can't understand the strange implications of admitting a duality of one kind, the physical versus the spiritual, but cannot seem to get any insight into a far more important one, which they wouldn't even have guessed by now if they were reading this, which is the distinction between Good and evil.


Pure hypocites, who can only mouth the words of justice but never exercise the substance of it, yet talk about it more superficially than anyone else and with the least number or quality of personal exemplifications of it in their lives, and even are often living antitheses of the idea!  They are in charge of the beast upon which they parasitically feast, and which they bring down eventually, and with it they descend into oblivion since they were not the real originators of anthing permanent nor permanent themselves, while the "true excellence" is returned to its Origin, along with all those who were never truly a part of that evil and facile world, hence never able to suffer a destruction with it as a member OF it.   Only we who would insist with that our every breath be drawn from a different air than our nemeses if possible, could possibly win in such a precise contest of wills which REAL Reality MUST demonstrate on pain of self-annihilation.  While they, on the other hand,would insist on the contrary, on an insistence of a falsified and insubstantial "commonality" (via materia), even though it is painfully obvious that such formalities are in a completely false spirit and in bad faith, and to be regarded as insignificant signifiers which signify the evil-mindedness which bespoke the signum but possessed not the signatum, namely, VIRTUE.  And so in the END it is the Good and True which will manifest ultimate Reality, and this is Known only by THEIR WISDOM, which the hylophiles cannot EVER comprehend or reach!  In THAT contest there can only be one Victory, and only ONE OF TWO will ascend to its Glory, NOT BOTH, the denials of the wretches notwitstanding.
