What is Art?
Society is constantly proclaiming “be yourself”, you’re told that over and over as you grow up, but as soon as you try that you quickly realize that what they really mean is be yourself but not too much or not like that or not when it makes people feel uncomfortable. Radical art and self expression is ridiculed by society and it only becomes accepted when its validated by an authority figure, a celebrity or an influential group.
What art is, true art, is a communication of someone’s subjective world into the external world. It is to take what is inside, pull it out and put it forth into objective reality. It is a symbolic communication of who you are, of what it is like to be you. The objective world is full of restrictions and constraints, of chains and shackles. You are constantly being told what you can and can’t do, how to dress, how to act, what to wear and who to fuck. But you are free within your subjective world, your inner world. And every piece of art that you create is a communication if your inner world. Art is the realm of liberation, release, catharsis.
And make no mistake this absolutely applies to the clothes you wear, the makeup you choose and any other form of self expression. You YOURSELF are the ultimate work of art. Always strive to express yourself and fuck anyone that tells you otherwise. How insane is the culture that makes men ashamed to wear makeup and for women to feel ashamed for not wearing it? The culture that says boys wear pants and girls wear dresses. These are colors and pieces of cloth and it doesn’t matter whether you have a dick or a pussy. The Mind is limitless and fluid, it is not fixed, it is gender fluid with no arbitrary restrictions. This is a reality of constant change where concepts flow into one another. You cannot put things into neat and tidy little boxes.
People everywhere are hiding within themselves, they are terrified of saying the wrong thing, wearing the wrong clothes, or putting on the wrong kind of makeup. They are walking prisons forever trapped by their fear of not fitting in and being excluded from the group. Every true piece of art that you create is a step closer towards freedom. The more that you bring your true self forth into this world, the more that you self actualize, the closer we get to a healthy liberated and conscious society. What would happen if everyone kept their true self hidden beneath the surface? Well, look around, you get exactly the world we have now. A world of sexual repression, misogyny, homophobia and hatred of anything new and different.
This reality is so fucking boring. Do you realize what sort of amazing experiences we could be having together? This is our opportunity to experience each other in physical form. This is our moment. Don’t waste it. LIVE life. Do I need a bullhorn? How can I make it crystal clear? Fuck societal norms, fuck everything you’ve been told and explore yourself, this reality, your mind, the world, and others free from societal conditioning. Look around you! Look at who is running the world! It is a disgrace! It has become unbelievable that you are standing on the sidelines and letting this happen. Take back the world! Take back your mind.
It is time to relight the fires of creativity and passion and to proclaim to the world that you are not a product, that you are not a commodity and that you are not property. Raise your voice and make yourself known to be what you truly are, that you are an individual mind, a free and liberated being and a unique expression of the infinite.
True art is the symbolic expression of an individual’s inner world into the outer world. When you experience the art of a true artist, such as a painting, a piece of music or even their personal style you are getting a glimpse into their soul. You are catching a flicker of what it is like to experience reality from their perspective. You might not even like it, it might make you uncomfortable but that’s okay, you will learn and understand from that experience.
What is a true musician doing? They are manipulating frequencies, they are shaping waveforms, they are creating intricate mathematical patterns. They are creating a soundscape, and when you listen to their music you are getting a glimpse into their world. They are creating a reality for you to experience. And this is just the beginning! Art and expression is evolving just like everything else. Imagine a future in which not just soundscapes are created but entire landscapes. Don’t get caught up in the finite human perspective, fast forward into the future and imagine a time when an artist can literally create an entire world of objects, sights, and sounds for you to experience. You will be able to walk into a world created by an individual and experience that piece of reality they have created for you. Today music and movies are just the shadow of this.
Leonard Bernstein said, “Any great work of art … revives and readapts time and space, and the measure of its success is the extent to which it makes you an inhabitant of that world — the extent to which it invites you in and lets you breathe its strange, special air.”
Soon we will fully be able to experience each other’s worlds. So much more is coming beyond your imagination! But it all starts now. With you, with us. So fuck the haters and be free. Don’t let them drag you down. They only strike at you because you represent the unknown, you are something they have never seen before and so they fear you. By getting haters you know that you are doing something right. They succumb to their left over instinctual drives by fearing anything that is new because the new threatens them, it is the fear of the unknown, the fear of the dark and unexplored territories. Always remember that they are apes, they are brutes and you are more evolved than them. The new, what hasn’t been seen before is exactly what pushes our boundaries and expands our horizons. So keep pushing!
Remember that we are all about logic and reason. Logic and reason is how we gain knowledge about the objective world, but it is through art that we experience each other. Reason must always be primary for it is through rationality that we gain knowledge of ultimate truth, and it allows us to work together, make decisions, and to create a healthy society. Logic and reason is exactly what allows us to create a new world in which art, creativity, and self expression is given the opportunity and freedom to flourish.
From the perspective of the absolute we are reality coming to know itself, we gain true knowledge through rational understanding, and it is through art that we are reality experiencing itself. Reality is one immense feedback loop and as you actualize and bring more of your inner self into the outer world for others to experience the more the universe actualizes as a whole. We are having this physical experience right now and we have the opportunity to experience, learn and grow together. Don’t waste this opportunity by living in fear of what other may think of you.
Nietzsche said “Believe me! The secret of reaping the greatest fruitfulness and the greatest enjoyment from life is to live dangerously.”
Nietzsche also said, “one must still have chaos in oneself to be able to give birth to a dancing star.”
Harness and guide that artistic chaos within and you will shine more brilliantly than the brightest star. This world is in a sorry state and it is only by using logic and reason humanity will be able to work together and stop killing each other! This world must utilize reason so that everyone can get on the same page and realize what this reality is and that you are here to make progress, move forward, and evolve in a healthy manner along with everyone else. You must realize what you are! And that is the universe coming to know itself.
We are self actualizing autonomous individuals and we don’t give a fuck about the herd. We are defined by no one, we are self creating and self defining and we raise our middle fingers to anyone that says otherwise. We are the trail blazers, the intrepid explorers of unknown territories, we are the light in the dark.
The people of this world are so fucking blind. Open your eyes, there are signs all around you. You can understand your purpose through something as simple as the cycles of a plant. A planet is like a garden and its people are the flowers, but the flowers in this garden refuse to bloom, it is a garden of the dead. You get so caught up in the human game, this fake existence foisted upon you by a sick culture, that you forgot your purpose, you forgot to bloom. You are meant to express yourself, if you never do then you are a flower that will die without ever having bloomed. All around me I see dark flowers holding in their bloom, hidden and ashamed for others to see and to even look at it themselves. Fulfill your purpose, become what you are!
Imagine a world in which everyone is not dragging each other down, bullying and trolling each other, but instead a world in which everyone is building each other up, supporting and pushing one another to be the best they can possibly be. Imagine a world in which there are no more empty clones but instead it is a world in full bloom comprised of fully actualized gods and goddesses. Join us and together we will build that world.
Ad Astra. To the Stars.
