Do you find bulking easier or cutting? To me not doing something (not eating during cutting) is always easier than doing (eating during bulking).

I have 2 ways to overcome hunger. From one end of the spectrum, allow yourself to be as sexually aroused as possible by watching porn and having lots of sex because the two basic drives of food and sex usually do not co-exist. This is using the body to overcome body. From the top end, read a lot of books, especially super abstract shit like Kant, Hegal and Heidegger. It’s hard to feel hungry when the mind is engaged at a level like that. Mind over matter at its best.


 

Films, relationships, consciousness

One way to test out whether or not your romantic relationship will work out is to go to the movies and see if you like the same films.

Your taste of films tells me more about who you are than your preference for any other aesthetic art forms. I think this is why all my previous relationships failed. All of my exes forced me to watch chick flicks, but fell asleep when I sho…wed them Lost in Translation.

In fact, I used show girls one film at a time on dates to observe how they reacted to see if we are right for each other. If they liked the first film on the first date, I would grant them a second date to screen them another film that I enjoyed. Usually I would start out with something more generous that MOST people would enjoy (Shawshank Redemption, Silence of the Lambs), and then moved on to more abstract and over-the-edge shit as the relationship progressed. Usually by the 5th or 6th films they would finally get tired of it and refuse to come to another date/screening session. It’s like I was using films to weed out girls, or to scratch the surface of their consciousness, layer by layer with each film in order to reveal their true forms and essences. Nobody had made it to Ferlini’s “8 ½” yet, or Michelangelo Antonioni’s “Blow Up” because usually girls start to complain by the 5th scene of “Lost in Translation”.

Film, more than any other art forms, comes closest to the pure nature of THOUGHT because the mind by default thinks in the montage of moving images and sounds rather than in words. Film is the medium of the mind, and when we watch a film, it is like one mind meeting another. This is also why film serves as the vehicle for propaganda. Nothing washes over your brain and captives your mind and emotions and changes the way you think more than films do. In fact, the image making process as a whole is analogous to the cognitive process of thinking. The film projector is your brain, the light that emits from the machine is your consciousness, and the pictures that the light reflected on is your mind.


 

Muscles as Time. Zyzz as Singularity.

When I see muscles, I don’t think of anything physical like protein, gym, weights, or even the idea of masculinity. I think of something far more abstract and profound – namely Time itself.

Muscle (gains) are time fossilized and condensed into something very dense from the habits of the past. Like time, there is an arrow – a direction in which muscles are moving and growing towards. Or rather, they are being pulled into some type of Omega point/ singularity in which all different types of physiques seek to converge.

This is your Platonic Aesthetics – the idealized physique of heavenly perfection that can never be achieved by mortals (yet we try our best to).

*for more on the theory of Platonic Forms: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Theory_of_Forms

Zyzz came close to this singularity during his lifetime, which is why people looked up to him as some sort of deity. He must have realized this himself, even if subconsciously, and that is why he named himself Zyzz; The Son of Zeus.

After he died, he is transformed into an idea and a symbol (partially by the way of nature, but also by Chestbrah). And by existing only inside our minds, he drew himself ever closer to the Platonic Aesthetics (which if you read the Republic, Socrates repeatedly suggests that any type of Form that exists as a Whole in the heavens can only be accessed, if only partially and imperfectly, by the mind).

I went to my friend’s gym, which is located in the wealthiest part of Taipei, with exclusive memberships and VIP squat racks, treadmills. I realized that all the women have noticeably nicer asses than all of the other gyms in Taiwan that I’ve been to. These women are wives and daughters of the wealthiest people in Taiwan, perhaps it’s by evolutionary logic that the most fertile women are taken by the most powerful men with the most resources.

You usually associate strong physiques with primitivism and animalism. But I think in the modern world, it’s more or less a status symbol to have extremely fit bodies due to the amount of leisure, resources, and knowledge one must acquire to obtain a good physique.

And then I think of movies like Wolf of Wall street where extremely well-off, ‘civilized’ people engage in the most primitive and animalistic activities of sex and drug consumption as ends to all means. The only other people I can think of that can indulge in this type of behavior whenever they want, wherever they want are tribal people of the hunter and gatherer societies who pick up shrooms on the ground to trip on and then have orgies all day.

Perhaps this type of primitive consciousness is our default mode of existence. But modern society has it that we must go through a whole avalanche of bullshit in order to go back to our more primal, original state of being.

*this image captures the juxtaposition of the civilized and the primitive pretty well. Also the title of the film, ‘WOLF’ and ‘WALLSTREET’ (i haven’t seen it though, too scared to).


 

Progression and migration of ‘bodies’ to the Virtual.

I came across this picture today. (The first 2. I’ve attached the 3rd).

While I am in no position to judge, my first thought is that the Real Aesthetic crew does look much more “Real”, “Authentic”, “Grounded”, and “Solid” than the Fake Natty Crew, which looks and feel more like the stuff of the internet and the virtual.

Consider the fact that the bodybuilders in the second picture literally made up their names, sculpted their personalities, proclaimed their statuses, and perhaps even attaining gears and training methods through the internet, but in contrast, the Real Aesthetic crew had to deal with mostly real life stuff…

I’ve also talked to people who’ve met these guys, and the first thing they always say is how they don’t look as big in “real life”, which points to the notion that camera angles, lightings, and etc are all part of the self manipulation these guys undergo to present themselves as ‘images’, which leads to, ‘egos’ that are much bigger than what they actually are.

If the technological singularity theory is correct, that we can immerse with machines and fully enter virtual reality that looks and feels so real that it is indistinguishable from reality in the coming decades, we will be dealing with “bodybuilders” who are completely virtual.

I see 2 categories of virtual bodybuilders in the future

1. People who don’t actually lift in “reality” using their hands but pumps iron with their minds to build up avatars (or perhaps their own bodies) that get bigger and more aesthetic with time and effort. This it not completely cheating in my book, for knowing how to visualize effectively and train with the right mentality is half of the game even in real life athletics.

As Winston Churchill predicted, “”The empires of the future are the empires of the mind.”

2. People who simply choose avatars that resemble bodybuilders.

On top of that you have people who actually lift with their flesh and bone bodies. And if you consider the fact that all 3 categories can be mixed up to present the final image of who you want to be, things can get much trickier and complex than today’s “half natties”.

Aside

I realized that I’m trapped inside a limbo that is the gym…for eternity.

I can’t travel anywhere without a scale, very specific weight training equipment, foods, mirrors, and supplements.

I can’t live in a cabin on the country side, rent a beach house, walk the Great Wall of China, climb the Himalayas, travel to space and land on the moon, go back to the past and photograph the dinosaurs, or just chill out and do nothing in my room for a couple of days without losing my gains and getting fat. Fuck this life.


 

 

Aside

‘materialism’ is not materialistic, and it’s not the same as consumerism (in before language game). Or I should say, it is a symptom of a larger set of problems . When someone wants to buy/collect something, he is merely trying to communicate his mind. When a man wants to buy a car to please his girlfriend, he is asking for love and acceptance, which is anything but material, it is sentimental and emotional. In a way, materialism does not exist.


 

Random training tip: When you lift, your breathing should sound like a snake hissing…”CHHHHHHHHHHH…..CHHHHEEEEEEEEHHHHHH”. This is the only way to let out air while still maintaining tightness in the posture.

PR: CHHHHHHHHHYEAAAAAA (this you can release more freely and roll over to YEAHHHHHHH to make a definite, assertive statement at the same time. Since you won’t have to stay tight for the next rep).


 

We try to change the world, and when we can’t we try to change ourselves. But too often the changes happen internally (emotionally), instead of doing something that makes a difference ‘out there’. That’s why being emotional can be sort of a cop out, a cheap way out of situations. When emotions are driven to maximum degrees, we even faint – to cut ourselves from the world completely to become totally unconscious so that we don’t have to deal with our problems.


 

Consciousness could be the resurrection of the non-spatial properties that was dormant before the Big Bang. Reality was non-spatial before the Big Bang, and with the bang, space came into being. But what about the aspects of reality that were non-spatial? Where could such properties re-emerge after space had been established? Perhaps in the brain itself…Once systems that are complex enough arise (the brain), this could somehow enabled the non-spatial dimension of reality to re-emerge and resurrect into the modern world as consciousness…consciousness could then be a type of immaterial and non-spatial fossil that existed before the Big Bang. If this is the case, then each one of us carries with us, inside our bodies, some type of immaterial substance that is so ancient that it precedes the existence of everything that we can conceive of…and it is indeed with this substance that this thought itself becomes possible.

A person’s personality is usually what he wants to be thought and perceived, not the way it actually is. The social world is nothing more than a huge sphere of presumed personalities.


 

Read a quote by Freud today. He said that love is the “psychosis of the normal people”.

What he means is that most people only experience attributes of mental illness, delusions, euphoria, drug experiences, meditative states, and various other signs of altered states of consciousness through love (and also sex. For most people, sex is the only activity they are allowed to totally ‘let go’ without filter and return to a primal state of being).

In other words, love is one of the only legit high most people get to experience.

But what about people that experience these things on a regular basis (other than love) anyway? does love seem to lose its significance and perhaps becomes pale in comparison to all other possible altered states one can choose to experience and express?

 


More stuff I read today from ‘Sex at Dawn’ that blew my mind (Pick up the book if you haven’t already. I’m still deciding whether this book is totally right on or complete bs, but I love reading alternative views and this book is full of it, from taking on Darwin to Steven Pinker to almost everything we take for granted about human nature and sex).

The following excerpt offers one of many proofs that females are evolved to be promiscuous : sperm competition in humans indicates that there are constantly sperms from different males inside a woman’s body.

Cliff: your semen is designed to kill the semen of the next man that fucks your gf.

“Heritable differences in sperm quality and sperm delivery equipment will be under intense selection…men’s ‘souped up genitals’ backed “a lot of spermatic firepower” would be worthwhile only if there were “some sort of race or contest. Otherwise, they seem excessive”.

Indication of spermatic firepower are evident in the differences between a man’s first spurts and his last. A human ejaculation typically consists of anywhere from 3 to 9 spurts (mine are 10 – 15 spurts on average. No wonder most girls said I have the most cum they’ve ever seen. Watch this video to learn how to practice prolonged ejaculation: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=66LYZfbRr6Q). Researchers found that the first spurts contain chemicals that protect against various kinds of chemical attack. What sort?

Aside from leucocytes and antigens present in a woman’s reproductive track, they protect the sperm from the chemicals in the latter spurts of other men’s ejaculate. These final spurts contain a spermicidal substance that shows the advance of any latecomers. In other words, competing sperm from other men seems to be anticipated in the chemistry of men’s semen, both in the early spurts (protective) and in the later spurts (attacking).


 

It’s funny how the people in younger generation don’t know what bbl or brb means because they are constantly connected to the internet. I don’t have internet on my phone (I choose not to mainly because I don’t want to be trapped inside virtual reality everywhere I go and I don’t like people knowing where I am most of the time, and I think i’ll hold it off for as long as possible. I just don’t think I’m ready to live life with that extra dimension yet), so it’s natural for me to go bbl when I step away from the computer, and then they’re like WHAT!? i was like be right bak! they go where!? i say away from the fucking internet.


I don’t delete friends on FB, even people from the past that I don’t talk to anymore because I like looking at pictures as they look older and fatter with each newsfeed update. The rush is exactly the same as looking at your own body transformation photos.


I had a vision last night during the in between state of dream and sleep that I was sleeping without a head. Rather, my head was not where and what it was supposed to be in reality. It shrunk to the size of a marble and was tightly situated in between my urethra, which served as a cork that was keeping me from ejeculating all over the place. What dis mean? Actually it’s obvious; I’m using my head/reason to keep my desires at bay, but I never knew such visual metaphor could be so literal that you hardly need Freud to decipher it.


 


 

Aside

Being unconscious is the deepest of the altered state of consciousness and I look forward to it every night. That’s why I have trouble falling asleep sometimes because I get so excited and anxious to be asleep/unconscious. No drugs, meditation, art or music can put you into that state directly, except for sleep itself. I know some people take sleeping pills recreationally because you can actually feel high on it right before it knocks you out…but I think the real high is the unconscious part. Everything else that comes before is come up.

The educational system today, especially in Asia is kind of like reading and memorizing the notes on a symphony without actually hearing the music. 

I think the same could be said about religion. Religions today place too much emphasis on dogmas, texts, and signifiers instead of the actual/direct experience itself. The average drug-taking, atheistic hipster probably has more mystical and religious experiences than the goodie, next door neighbor church goer. You want to experience god? Try tripping on psychedelics while listening to classical music instead of listening to a preacher list the dos and don’ts of life and then putting cookies on your tongue for once.


 

Too many people confuse creativity with intelligence. Creative expression is illogical, unreasonable, and often times unintelligible…and when occupied by grown men and women, it’s completely insane and irresponsible. 

An ‘artistic genius’ and a ‘mathematical genius’ have two completely sets of brains. Mixing up the two categories is like confusing a marathon runner with a 100 meter dash sprinter.

Drive movie “review” starring Ryan Gosling.

Aesthetic as fuck.

Just saw the movie Drive again, on DVD. It’s still one of the best movies I’ve seen in theater in the last decade.

The more I think about it, the more I realize that this movie is actually about an autistic savant. 

Someone whose mind operates in a completely different wavelength than the rest of us and fails to connect with other human beings and worldly matters. Except he isn’t amazing at math or memorizing phonebooks or music, but a genius in DRIVING. 

And that idea in and of itself makes this movie a genius of its own right.

Anyway here was what I wrote when the movie first came out. Might have changed my mind about some of it but here it is…

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6r_PLen-MyE

“This was the only movie I saw in the last 2 years that got stuck in my mind hours after I walked out of the theater. A little bit of art-house existentialism and a little bit of Hollywood action…the paradoxical mixture makes the film quite surreal. See it, and tell me what you think.

I love the mask scenes. Ryan gosling’s character – having no name, no clear motivations, no past, no future, little dialogue, and the way he put on a faceless mask in critical moments while roaming around the city in the dark, the way he was referred to in the beginning of the movie as a “zombie”, how he got stabbed at the end, yet seemed to be unharmed as he simply drove off into the horizon, how he walked away without the money because he had have no practical purposes or uses for it, and his god-like driving ability to get around and avoid physical obstacles seemed to indicate that he was some sort of non-being who existed in a different metaphysical plane as most mortals. He avoided human contacts unless absolutely necessary (hesitate to shake hands, drives people around but want nothing more to do with them other than “just drive”), yet had the power to exert forces and influence causes and effects if for greater cause. 

One of the many themes of the movie is that real “heroes” are nameless and faceless and do not seek after glory and fame, and unlike a lot of of cliche heros in action movies that take up a lot of space and grab a lot of unnecessary attention to get the job done, he quietly “flows” around like a ghost, yet he was extremely effective and lethal. His job as a stunt driver symbolizes this. When we watch movies, the heroic moments were often times the work of nameless stuntmen who take the “hit” for the big-time actors…but they get no credit for their work, yet they are the real heroes who work “behind the scenes”. Their jobs are stunt doubles are deadly, fast, loud, and full of explosions and danger, yet they “quietly”, while hiding behind masks, makeup, wigs, and etc, get the job done discretely, jumping from scene to scene, job to job without leaving traces of who they really are.

Ryan gosling was the stuntman for Irene and her family. He took hits for them, taking the baggage that was going to be on Irene’s shoulder and put it on his back. He never revealed more about himself than what was necessary, and after the family was relieved, he just drove away, leaving nothing physical behind. Sometimes the people who have the most affects on our lives are people like him…you don’t know who they are, where they are from, and where they are going, their physical presence could be minimum…they may appear in your life for only a moment or two, yet their influences, spiritually and mentally, are immense and life-changing”.

LOL.

“losing hope in humanity”….”the world is now fucked” are the typical top comments

I think it’s quite the opposite. I think this pictures shows signs of progress and advancement.

First of all, what’s the perquisite for accomplishing this task? Lots of money. Which means this guy is definitely well off. Even if his dad paid for his surgeries, he’s probably not a moron, since his dad has to be somewhat intelligent to make that much money. So it’s basically a status symbol. And if the real JB is the ultimate status symbol. This guy is the status symbol of a status symbol. Meta.

50 years ago a lot of people will want to look like Elvis or Marilyn Monroe but they can’t because medicine/technology won’t allow it. Now they can, because the world is getting more awesome. So awesome that you can look like JB. 

In 50 more years we will have virtual reality and the ability to switch bodies, which I’m sure will result in even more JBs. We would also cure lots more diseases, athletes will be faster and stronger, and we will know much more about the universe.

Don’t forget that people’s seemingly superficial desires – perfecting looks, driving a faster and more aesthetic car, etc are some of the strongest driving forces behind tech advancement, which in turn allows more people to fulfill these fantasies that have always been there, since the dawn of mankind.

Darwin and Einstein were two of the biggest mind BBCs known to man. Beethovan was too. You can just tell from his facial expression that he just wants to mindfuck the shit out of you, just because he can.

Muhammad Ali was THE BBC. So was Jordan…and yes he fucked a lot too. 

And if you really think about it, even when athletes dominate, they are really just mindfucking, the way they enter their opponent and fans’ heads and gave them nightmares. 

Freud and many others said that the creative energy is fundamentally sexual and primal, and the most noble thing that a man can do is channel this energy into the arts (or athletics)

Animals use this energy to mate and hunt. And we humans do the same. Except what made us humans is not strength or speed, but the ability to THINK. 

So while humans, like all other animals, have the desire to FUCK with our bodies, because our brains are the ultimate weapons for survival, we also have the desire to MINDfuck. 

In other words, we not only want to pass on our genes, but we also want to pass on our ideas as memes to leave our legacies behind. And IDEAS will last longer than bodies.

Which leads to my conclusion that mindfucking > fucking. Even when you try to fuck a girl, you have to seduce. Seduction is one huge mindfuck. So big that it blows open the vagina.

If you really break down the concept of “mindfucking”, what’s really happening when you got ‘mindfucked’ is that your brainwaves undergo a change to allow you to be in an altered state of consciousness. 

And playing with the brain, testing out its potential by altering mind states to accomplish different goals and solve different problems is essential to our survival, and probably how our brains got bigger. 

Terrence McKenna even pushed it as far as saying that mushrooms, peyotes and weed (ingesting them can result in the BIGGEST mindfucks known to mankind) were standards in the diet of early humans because they allowed us to perceive our environments and thought about things differently.

Anything from drinking to partying, to playing video games, to going on a roller coaster ride, watching movies, going to concerts, falling in love, orgasming, taking drugs, running, watching football ARE ALL MEANS OF ACHIEVING ALTERED STATES. Some states however, are more ‘significant’ than others.

According to the English philosopher John Stuart Mill, he distinguishes between the lower and the higher forms of pleasure.

I think what he is really saying is that there are better or worse ways to mind-fuck yourself and others. 

What are some higher and lower ways that you alter your consciousness? 

For instance, 

High: A concert pianist entering into a state of ecstasy and getting a huge kick out of humping his keyboard while the audience, lovers of classical music, are moved to tears. 

Medium: Going to art-house theater and genuinely enjoying the experience.

Low: Watching porn and fapping. Afterwards getting drunk at the club and dancing to Beyonce.

Not saying that weed is bad or anything, but the whole “it’s found in nature! so it shouldn’t be illegal” argument is retarded. 

Just because something is found in nature it doesn’t mean it’s healthy for you, or that it shouldn’t be kept away from civilized human beings who might crave it.

There are tons of poisonous substances found in nature that are lethal to the human body. What if there’s a newfound species of snakes that can get us high, but the negative consequences are as bad as Heroine? Should that not be made illegal?

And the whole “it’s prohibited by law, therefore it is against our freedom” idea is equally nonsensical.

I’m pretty sure the hunter and gatherer society, where everyone is pretty much free (to kill and rape anyone for that matter) sounds like real freedom to me. 

Complete freedom is no freedom. Freedom can only arise out of a structured backdrop/limitation.

Freewill and determinism are not two exclusive concepts, but must co-exist for either to make sense.

Came across this today. I used to think about this scenario everyday. Toy story was my favorite movie growing up and I bought like 5 different Woodies (2 of them were from Happy meals at Mcdonald) 

At first I was really embarrassed because sometimes I would fap and forget to put them in the closet. But after a while I got used to it and even lined them up and fapped in front of them.

I used to ask myself whether it was possible to have a mind without the physical brain inside those plastic heads. It was obvious to my young mind that the Woody inside the screen had to have a mind, in fact, Woody was nothing but the mind since his body was immaterial and made up of wavy pixels.

I wanted very badly for Woody to have a mind, even if he didn’t want to show it off in front of me. I think this was what got me started in the mind-body problem obsession.

I want to live in a world where females automatically get pregnant every 7 days, and the only way to terminate the pregnancy would be to insert a penis into the vagina in a sort of, abortion as contraception paradox.

This way, young females who don’t want to get pregnant will go around begging for sex. Here is a rule : It must be a DIFFERENT penis every time. So all girls will be sluts by default.

I think the reason why I enjoy both filmmaking and bodybuilding is because they are very similar, at least to my mind.

If bodybuilding is sculpting the flesh (space),
then filmmaking is sculpting time.

When you make a film, you shoot a BULK of footage, and then CUT it until you reveal an aesthetic structure (with as little fat as possible). 

Now, when you partake in them simultaneously; when the films you make are of yourself bodybuilding…that’s META
