    Midnight Mass

    Just binged the whole thing and for the most part I liked it. I thought it was a great example of Good Religion and Bad Religion. But the show definitely had some weak points in its theology, most of which have already been written about here. I'll write it out because I just finished the...

    Squid Game

    Turned it off after the episode with the marbles. Couldn't stand the shallow allegory of anti-capitalism. People keep saying that is it the best show of the year but they won't remember it in five years.

    Wheel of Time

    My girlfriend liked it but she watches the Great British Bake Off and Gilmore Girls. I thought it sucked. I read the first five books. First the Witcher and now this. Shitty sets. Shitty acting. Half-assed costumes and seemingly no attempt to get us into the world. It's a soap masquerading...

    Read the next two in the trilogy and then tell me how you feel. I've never had the chance to talk about the books with anyone.

    Shamanism: Archaic Techniques of Ecstasy by Mircea Eliade This is the third book by Mercia Eliade that I have read, and it was not the most interesting work. This book is an exhaustive cataloguing of shamanic practices amongst Siberian tribes, their methods of achieving religious ecstasy...

    Dionysus: Myth and Cult by Walter F. Otto This book is primarily two things. On one hand it is a great resource for detail concerning the rites of the Cult of Dionysus. On the other hand it is a look into the mindset of ancient people. Too often, the author claims, we look at old religions...

    Mysterium Coniunctionis by Carl Jung This is not a book. It is a tome. And it is also a slow burn. Almost 600 pages of actual text, the 'point' of this tome (as with most of Jung's writings) only coalesces as you reach the end. But what an interesting end! The body of the work busies itself...

    Dune (2020)

    Yet he (or Jessica) says they could take the family atomics and go rogue. They don't do that. Leto Atreides had two options and chose to face the bull.

    Dune (2020)

    Man I used to love that band when I was in highschool and college. The Old Duke died displaying 'bravado' in a bull fight. He knew the bull was dangerous but he went into it anyway, because he needed people to see him face down the danger and win. Duke Atreides is the exact same way. He...

    Dune (2020)

    Went and saw it instead of going to some dinner with my girlfriend. Priorities. I'll preface this by saying I have read Dune multiple times. I liked this alot, but I would give it a 8.5/10. I thought it was pretty faithful to the book, but overall was simply a rough sketch. Everything is...

    That is what this all is. People think their Egos are their entire personalities. They adopt personas to wear on their ego, akin to different jackets. "I am Anti-Racist. I am Pro-Choice. I am a Democrat." Then they begin to identify their entire personality with these personas. When these...

    The Archetype of Initiation by Robert L. Moore I enjoyed this book. The crux of it is that in order to deal with new challenges in life and grow as a person, you must 'die.' Effectively you have to experience an emotional or mental breakdown, at which point you must accept that you have...

    I work with a guy who lives on a quiet street in a rural county outside of town. He told me there are a bunch of longhaired rednecks that whip by on motorcycles. Or at least they did. Apparently he went out there and threw a baseball at them and they stopped. I'm inclined to believe him. He...

    Dune Messiah by Frank Herbert I reviewed this in 2019, and did not give it a favorable response. My opinions have changed since then. Armed with more life experience, and the knowledge that Herbert incorporated Jungian ideas into this books, I re-read Messiah. And I enjoyed it more than I did...

    Working at an apartment complex on the outskirts of town. Done some work here in the past. Cockroaches and trash everywhere. Bunch of beat up cars and beat up people.

    You are never go to get rid of all the horrible people in the world. So you don't try to make the world a perfect place. You try to make yourself strong enough to deal with an imperfect world. You will get stepped on at some point in your life, but it is a form of strength to get stepped on...

    Psychology and Alchemy by C.G. Jung Since learning about alchemy in middle school, I took it as just one more example of how people in the Middle Ages were so much dumber than Modern people. But this book changed that. Jung provides two things with this book; the first is a solid look at...

    Bo Burnham: Inside (2021)

    World has always been broken. There is no Heaven on Earth. There never has been and there never will be. How do you deal with that? You need Inner Strength in order to deal with it. That's where the morals come in. If you are fighting a war, you might come to a point where you have to...

    Interesting that you mention this because I think it also ties in with Jung's ideas. In one of his books he writes that if you repress a piece of yourself for too long, it will come back violently. I think that Baron Harkonnen, as the Overlord of Arrakis and the representation of Unchecked...

    Dune by Frank Herbert ** spoiler alert ** I believe this is the fourth time that I have read Dune. The first two times were when I was a teenager, and I liked it for what I thought it was; a sci-fi adventure story. The third time I read the book I liked it for the byzantine politics that...

    I got the impression he was poking fun Woke artists. Yeah I'm 28 about to be 29 and I realized in the last two years that the Internet is just bullshit. All you really need is a moral framework to help you deal with the world, and then a goal to work towards. You should build your opinions...
