An Epicurean Guide To The Galaxy

Epicurean Philosophy’s tenets are broken down to the following:

1st: That pleasure which produces no pain is to be embraced.

2nd: That pain which produces no pleasure is to be avoided.

3rd: That pleasure is to be avoided which prevents a greater pleasure, or produces a greater pain.

4th: That pain is to be endured which averts a greater pain, or secures a greater pleasure.

Now that this base has been covered, allow me to expand on them into a broader platform:

*Power and success are sometimes mutually exclusive, but almost always a product of an intelligent exchange of pleasure. Some success can be achieved by an uneven use of power (threats and bribery), but it cannot be enjoyed for threat of retaliation. Conversely, if you are too powerful, you convey displeasure in your constituents and peers (envy) and therefore risk having your success undermined or even taken away.

*Its not morality that predicts someone being a good person in the public’s eyes, its the amount of pleasure that said person elicits. Such explains why villains and violence attract more ratings than virtue and sunny optimism. If you ever wonder why revenge and redemption are more digestible than doing good from the starting gun, its because such flavors are more pleasurable. Without sympathy, pleasure is superseded by hate and envy.

*Delayed gratification is the only gratification. Cheap thrills exist, sure, but the end result is flat and impotent without the tension that builds from denied fulfillment. To want something is to lack it (see the Greek folklore of Tantalus), and therefore the lack of complete fulfillment leaves room for more to be desired. Complete satisfaction leaves no room for more satisfaction. Remember the golden rule: “keep em wanting more”

*The ends justify the means. If you think otherwise, you’re either a slave or an idiot.

*The cost of an object of desire’s attainment is the true value. How much it cost to make, what you had to do to earn it, how much time was spent waiting until you were able to attain said object are the ingredients that makes the mouth salivate.

*To exchange and give is to commune and therefore live. We were made social creatures, and thusly the more powerful are better at exchanging pleasure (and the give and take with these individuals is a delicacy in itself).

*Those who are unable to give and take skillfully are rapists, thieves, the entitled, the obnoxious among us. They do nothing for themselves and therefore nothing for anyone else. Hence the adage “love yourself before you love others” You have to test and refine your product before you go to market to sell your wares

*Make no mistake that the world is about selling yourself and what you have to offer as an individual in exchange with others for what you desire. The world is a marketplace, and you are both merchant and product. In love and in business, this is what it means to be powerful and successful.



Humble Pie: Feminist Food For Thought

To those born female,

*Girls are tortured with the disorder of infantile narcissism and the causes are encouraged from an early age

*As early as 15, some cases earlier, girls are sought after. To use an analogy; if they were to be depicted as any aspect of war, they would be a stronghold attacked by all armies, from all sides. To win this stronghold, all contending parties offer gifts and luxury to win said stronghold. How fitting that despite the unyielding onslaught, the “stronghold” is taken down from within…at the hands of the closest counselors (mother and father/lack thereof)

*This battle from within and without to influence and win the stronghold is at it’s peak until the early 20’s, wanes after around 25, and puts on the brakes near the wall (mid 30’s onward)

*This poisons the well in a few ways:

  1. Receiving all this attention from a young age enforces the mindstate that “the world will come to me without me doing anything but looking attractive” The battle within aforementioned comes from her elder women that laud her beauty without equal or even due consideration of her intelligence. You hear all the counseling in your own life or in passing; tips about make-up and how good/cute they look; What he/she is wearing; what perfume do you like?; find a man that will take care of you and treat you right…..all of these things are about attracting the finer things in life but not about earning them. Heaven forbid you develop a passion or have talent outside of your physique (Acting doesn’t count because women are natural liars)
  1. Relying on your looks to get what you want enforces not only infantile narcissism, but a manipulative and parasitic lifestyle that is low on merit, and stockpiled in cunning. The highway robber without the gun, but sex and the promise of sex instead.
  1. Its no wonder that we see so many pretty women with fragile egos and low self-esteem: they’ve never had to earn what they’ve owned. They can get free drinks, a place to stay, food, vacations for free, so why bother with work? Why bother with work when you can con someone into doing it out of pity or being a “gentleman” ?
  1. Thats why the women who are either not attractive or not viewed as attractive by her community tend to have better personalities because they were never given the false-sense of reality. Instead, they were treated as adults and flourished accordingly. Hence the phrase “skinny bitches are evil” These “ugly duckling” women are the truly beautiful, with brains and personality to boot (i.e. Cleopatra, Ninon De Lenclos, Madame de Pompadour, etc)

In summary:

The laziness; the weak ego; the infantile narcissism, the manipulative and parasitic lifestyle; these lead these girls by the nose to follow their impulses like children. When they finally get a dose of reality, these coddled-creatures turn red with rage. For as the great sage, Thomas Sowell stated:

“When people get used to preferential treatment, equal treatment seems like discrimination.”



Women of Achievement are Atypically Masculine

A broad and general statement to throw into the ether, but one that I will argue with the following:

*Dark, stoic clothing

*Ponytail or braids (similar to rolling up sleeves to get the hair out of the way for working). To adopt this style in casual or everyday life is to say to the world “I’m ready!” In times of trauma or distress from a lack of masculine attention or just the recent chasm of male presence or  male love, a woman will go one step further and cut her hair short  and compensate for the lack. You’ll see many a single mother or woman who’s been hitting zero cut their hair short and stylish in aims to get ready for war or claim independence to the outside world.

*Tattoos are also an indicator of a more masculine bent to a woman

*A good sense of humor

*One who doesn’t take herself seriously and jokes easily

*When their dominance is ACTUALLY threatened, they turn alpha and assert their position

*Independent and private

*Deep voice

*Won’t hold a grudge, but just avoid the other person after the conflict was dealt with

*A temper that is both volatile and short lived

*Prone to skepticism and doubt ; romantic in gesture, but not in words

*Walks more with the shoulders (Masculinity), less with the hips (femininity)

*Search for things without consulting a reference or table of content or authority. They plunge in.

*Needs to be needed

*Protective of their loved ones

*Not afraid of getting dirty or eating in front of people (less afraid of eating hearty food and being messy)

*Playfully pokes fun at their lovers/friends as a form of affection

* Ninon De Lenclos; Dr. Helen Smith ; Sally Ride; Hedy Lamaar; Dana Loesch; Kathrine Hepburn; Lauren Southern; Coco Chanel; Mae West; Ronda Rousey; Gina Carano; and many others.

Now despite the implications of this list, AWALT and the main difference in these women listed or in the ones displaying these traits in their natural personality is that they are more like us. In that way, they become more work oriented and less inclined to the spoiled-child behavior that women have now become, but certainly not immune. One of mine who struggles to wear bright colors and be lady like (off-roading and rock climbing) tried to blame something on me that I had no stake in. They’ve always been the ones we waged wars to protect or just to get back. But now that our contributions have been demonized, we must continue to take the necessary measures that unjust behavior is met with justice.

Boy and Girl Make the World,


Mother Nature, Father Time

A few simple meditations on the two sides of the carnal coin:

*Women are intuitive and primal, Men are logical and experience incarnate.

*Women are intricate and confusing to themselves due to the various contradicting viewpoints vying for supremacy, Men are creatures of focus with blind-spots aplenty.

*Women get their value due to their power or ability to sway and influence another’s nature, whereas Men get their value by contributing things of value and therefore becoming valuable.

*Women utilize their “seasons” to distract and entrance, Men use their persistence to protect and provide.

*Women uproot, Men dig in their heels.

*Women use noise, Men use silence.

*Women want the whole earth, Men want what stands the test of time and discards the rest

*Women want the best resources they can get, Men want the best for women.

*Women get what they want, Men want what they get.

Happy Hunting,


Lying, The Witch, and The Wardrobe

My take on honesty or lack thereof : Dwight L. Moody  “Character is what a man is in the dark.”

* You shouldn’t tell people everything, but you should always tell the truth

*People ignore harsh truths to swallow sweet lies, and will do so without blinking an eye

*Makeup; hairstyles; clothing; all of these are lies that are chosen by the psyche and therefore bear the signature of the soul. The lies that people choose are the truths that betray them.

*The most confident of people are calm: So if one roars like a lion, treat them like the deer that they are.

*The person who wants to do right and proclaims so verbally is unaccustomed to such a virtue. Some think that generosity is a tool to assuage guilt, and I’m inclined to agree.

* If you know something about someone, or understand a subject or an idea better than another, do not let it be known that you do. If do volunteer your understanding, you clearly do not understand how ideas or people are best understood.

* When you hear someone talk about actions, what they will do or what they will not do, you now know which promises they are sure to break.

Hold frame and be amused,


Less Sex, More Confusion: Why millennials aren’t making babies

* Opposites attract isn’t something that you say in place of a real argument, its biological incentive. To want, or to lack, is to desire.

*The things we envy or lust for are the things that are foreign to us, either in nature or possession.

*The good girl wants the bad boy, the experienced man wants the virginal girl. Opposites attract.

* When looking at woman and man, how much more opposite can you get?

* Personality; body; biology; a chasm of differences longing to be consolidated: usually with sex

* The battle of the sexes has always been, and always will be. However, none of the warring factions win if either truly win, for they are each’s compliment, not contender.

* As Osho put it, “the future is she” and the future is now. Men are more womanly than ever; homosexuality as a minority yet a cultural norm in urban areas, sex changes, and the ever vigilant crusade on Masculinity.

*This crusade has won. Male behavior in boys is deemed “toxic” where as women’s behavior is the gold standard. Men are second-rate women to a degree that dandyism would pale. Women now flood the work force and trumpet “girl power.” They enter into the work force in fields that men have dominated since there was any field to dominate, with the exception of child-birth.

*Child care is still a woman’s field, but child-birth is not. With exceptions for arab nations, the 1st world, particularly China, Japan, and the USA, are not producing children at rate that replaces the generation prior. China even upped it’s limit on children allowed to 2 children per family.

*Blame who you will, but the chasm between the sexes in manner, dress, and physical frame has merged to the point of confusion. Women seem to want it all: career and family, career first, and go into their mid 30s having ambitions, sexually experience, or liberated from the patriarchal oppression, only to find that they have gone past their prime age for:

1. Finding a husband or life partner
2. Bearing children
3. Building a family atmosphere

*Men seem to be more docile and are more inclined to retire from the vigors of the work place and the social game of meet and greet. They attend college less, work less, and marry less. If men dont approach or initiate the courting phase, then dating and marriage and babies dont happen.

*And why should they? With the prevalence of STDs, the alleged “rape culture” that scares the shit out of men, and most importantly, women looking and sounding aggressive and unfeminine, it’s a boner killer of a world to be a man. There’s no lush fruit to desire. Where there used to be pineapples and mangos, there are dry and rough, insecure and volatile turnips. Metaphorically speaking, of course.

*Metrosexual men, masculine women, and no babies. Generation Y Even Bother

Until every man is wearing heels,

Hypergamy: There’s Levels To This Shit

Yes: all women are hypergamous, but not all women are the same. How does the hypergamy express itself? According to “the more hypergamous the woman the more likely she is to be a gold digger”

While some only resort to base strategies to secure a mate/resources, such as sex and the security that comes with companionship in exchange for $ and social climbing, not all women do so. Some simply want to yield a child and thus desire to secure optimum genetics. Many a woman I encounter want both of these things, and their “soulmate” is someone who can provide them with both. However, the rarity of this encourages a woman to settle for a good provider of security (stable financially and easily controlled) while pining for the thrills and optimum genetics of another.  Hypergamy is the impetus that urges a woman to yield the best offspring under the best conditions.

Although I often am at the economic level or lower than the women I deal with, they are happy to take the thrills I offer by way of strong genetics, emotional unavailability (aloof) and therefore manhood, and taboo aura. In short, once they get dinner, the go for desert (me).

Here is a short guide to the degrees of hypergamy:

Low Hypergamy:

* Stable masculine presence or father figure, whether from a biological father or uncle/relative.

* Trades up in strength and intelligence.

* Wants a man of ambition and hard working/loyalty like her father (or other masculine force)

* Tradcons, tomboys/daddies girls. Tough but feminine.

Moderate Hypergamy:

* Father or masculine presence either infrequent or ineffective.

* Trades up in resources and mental/physical prowess.

* Provider priority with increased fantasies of alpha traits and bad boys. Will do so once in a relationship.

* Increased likelihood of neurosis

High Hypergamy:

* No father or masculine presence in upbringing.

* Trades up in resources, mainly money, using sex or the promise of sex.

* Alpha fucks/beta bux as a default sexual strategy

* Highly dependent and entitled. Infantile,  narcissistic, and neurotic as a general rule

While hypergamy is a biological factor, the current conditions for the second sex are of relative lawlessness and condone the worst of human nature to rule the roast. This turn of the wheel allows for women to cannibalize themselves and those who associate with them like locusts without contention.

Until the crops are gone,


In-group Bias Can Kill You

Mob mentality, crab-bucket mentality, tribal mentality, all these are names of the same psychological dynamic. Let’s explore what we’ve seen the world over, and especially in American politics, as the difference between unwavering support and ostracization and even death.

* The group protects you as long as you adhere to the group. The group forgives so as long as you are faithful to the group and never criticize the group. If you contribute to the group and support the group in public forums (represent your set) then the group loves you. However, when you critique the group or hold the group accountable for things it criticizes in opposing groups, the group gangs up on you. If you try to leave the group, the group is done with you. In Islam, Feminism, BLM, these dynamics are especially true. Opposition can even result in death concerning Islam.

* Black people have an increased degree of this hate for the out-group, even in the more moderate or educated circles. The shooting of a black man by a cop in mid 2016 Baltimore sparked a riot and a “white people witch hunt” where cars were tipped and white people were chased and beaten if seen. Thanks to the blindness of mob mentality, they never considered the fact that the cop who shot the black man was himself black, and the very racism they claimed to combat was the one they used as an “open season on white people.”

* Prior and after the election of Trump, anyone sporting a “Make America Great Again” hat was chastised, harassed, beaten, or shot by the tolerant and non-violent, non-racist Democrats. A child of about 6yrs was left outside by his mother for voting Trump in a mock trial at school. Teachers have been fired for tweeting pro-trump sentiments.

* Being a loner you get to see all the hypocrisy and stupidity from the outskirts. Whenever I journey into groups of people of more than 3 people, I call it “going into town.” I adhere to the general rules that they follow. As long as you do so and don’t change or criticize (which is the same thing) too much about the general rules, you can fly underneath the radar. There’s strength in numbers and for most who feel vulnerable and insecure, any change or criticism of the group feels to them like a personal attack because they derive security from the strength/numbers of the group. “The nail that sticks out gets hammered,” and the gazelle that gets away from the herd gets hunted by predators first, then left by the herd. Not many people are built for the outskirts. Even if you are someone, like me, who feels not fear but free when on your own, you’d be an idiot to ignore the benefits of using camouflage.

Fly under the radar and into power,


Imitation is Flattery: Theft vs. Appreciation

Over the horizon has come a massive wave of cultures and artists who’s chief complaint isn’t that their art is unappreciated, but far from it, that their art is being appropriated aka stolen. Let’s dig in.

  1. The Beatles stole Chuck Berry’s songs and he never got proper credit or credence


Michael Jackson was inspired by James Brown and then took the baton further with the moonwalk

  1. Rappers by-and-large steal other’s music (often from the 70’s and 80s) and call it “sampling”


Radiohead who is largely “influenced” by Jazz but who’s traces aren’t carbon-copies

* Note how black culture has animosity for average rappers (Macklemore, Vanilla Ice) who are white, but without fail regard Eminem as the best Rapper alive who is beyond criticism. He didn’t steal or do injustice to the art form that is “native” to a certain culture, he did it his way.
* If you speak Spanish to a Latino who speaks Spanish, and do so fluently, you show a respect for the culture. If you speak poor Spanish to a Latino who speaks Spanish, it comes off as tarnishing his culture with either mockery or caring not for the excellence with which you speak Spanish.
* The difference between theft and appreciation is how well you steal and further the culture. If you simply do what another group does and do not contribute or honor to that group, the group goes up in arms. If you do pay homage to those before you, you will earn supporters.
* Theft is so insulting to those you steal from, not because it’s morally wrong, but because you ignore and disrespect the well you draw water from. Indians would use all of the animal they killed for various purposes in addition to eating the meat. They also prayed over the animal and thanked him for his sacrifice and contribution, even though they killed him. This honored the animal.
*Casanova was a womanizer, but he did it in such a manner that she would love every second of courtship and in parting: He’d buy his lover a gift to honor and thank her for being his lover.

It’s not what you do, but how you do it: Do it well.

Feminine Lures, Masculine Instincts

Once again we bark up the “opposites attract” tree to take another bite from this red-pill branch of knowledge. Let’s dig in.

* According to Rollo Tomassi “feminine means doesn’t work, masculine works.” I’ve covered this very dynamic in my prior post “Women of Achievement are Atypically Masculine”

* The very thing that makes us approach a woman, want to pay for her on a date, protect her, and behave in a protective and chivalrous manner is the very relationship of father/daughter, protector/vulnerable, teacher/student, giver/receiver. Women hardly ever approach a man for this very reason. In order to illicit resources and protection, they act weak or dumb so that they aren’t a threat while praising and asking of her protector/provider’s instincts and masculinity to look after her. And without a fuss, watch the “you’re so strong; could you lift this for me and help me move” go down smoother than a smoothie in the dead of summer.

* There are physical tells that biologically flip a switch in our brains and drive us men crazy. These tells all communicate “vulnerable, innocent, weaker than us” and therefore protect, provide, and dominate.

* Stiletto heels, long nails, and all other finery that make it hard to move or protect herself elicit sexual/paternal instincts in men. They also double her curves and sexual dimorphism. Ponytails and exposed necks (carotid artery and nape of the neck), limp wrists all expose vital arteries and if in battle would end the battle. These areas also make it easy to control the movement of the other animal once captured (see any martial art video, especially Wing Chun and Bruce Lee) and also are seen to be primarily used by parents and authorities (police and handcuffs, every mammal grabs their progeny by the nape of the neck.

* Large hips support the demands of child-birth, but make for shitty mechanics for running. Heels as aforementioned amplify the ass and hips, and to a slight extent, the breasts by way of posture, and accordingly the external signs of fertility.

* When you join the army, the first thing they do is cut your hair to a Caesar (and a good thing they do. You don’t want long hair when someone is fighting you, unless you put razors in your hair like cholitas do; but this is an easy plant sense the easiest fight-ender is to grab the hair and control the opponent.)

* Neoteny (large forehead and eyes) also plays a significant role in luring in men. The soft skin, higher register voice, the flirtatious and adorkable body movements all make us take pity on women and endear them to us. The lowering of the head, like a child that knows it’s done wrong, or the turning away of the head (which exposes the neck), all contribute to the longest running and successful gambit that mother nature has created: make the gender that houses the creation of it’s kind the more vulnerable and make it able to manipulate the otherwise rational and logical male.

Women like to be dominated, men like to dominate. Women give the signals that she’s a juicy fruit on the vine, ready to be plucked, and we walk by and see her, in all her FEMININE GLORY, and pick her. If you wonder why women aren’t the fabled goddesses of yore, it’s because they dress and act like men. Silly rabbit’s want to be lions, and wonder why no one is hunting them.

Holding Frame,
