It’s interesting there’s some infighting going on in The Alt-Right with respect to whether or not National Socialism is a part of The Alt-Right.

Looks like Florida did an excellent job of preparing for Hurricane Irma compared to Texas with Hurricane Harvey. No surprise there. :)

So far, the six deaths in Florida don't appear to be the fault of preparers (the government).
I forgot to update on the situation, but neither I nor anyone I know is dead, and the only one of us with any considerable damage is my friend who evacuated to Orlando. Her yard is a bit flooded, and I think a few of her plants might be damaged, but everything else is fine.
A section of my fence fell down, but that's pretty much nothing.

I believe very few people actually understand The Superior-Inferior Relationship Model. Some people actually think they can get rid of the inferior part of the equation but what they don’t understand is that as time passes by, the next logical step would be to label or find something else to designate as being inferior. This cycle would repeat itself until there’s not that much people left on the planet. I believe this could be called hyper-masculinity or hyper-individuality.

I saw somewhere that after Hurricane Andrew, buildings were built to withstand hurricanes or something like that.

In any case, I think some sort of luck does come into play because there were some people that decided to ride out the storm by not evacuating and they appear to be fine.

When I think about the symbol for the Yin and the Yang, I start to wonder if it really is an accurate representation of the reality of this/the Universe. One of my favorite things I like to say many times in the past is the necessity of thinking in terms of ranges, spectrums, and continuums. I suppose proportions is inclusive in all that. How many things related to dualities and dichotomies come in exactly at 50% each? Take for example when you think about the nature versus nurture debate where you might have been taught in school that both are just as important almost implying as if both have equal value to each other. Is this the part where the devil is in the details? Would it be fair to ask/pose the question of to what extent/degree is the composition of nature and nurture? Does nature come in at 50% and nurture also come in at 50% or it is more like nature comes in at 70-80% whereas nurture comes in at 20-30%? Another example would be the duality of masculinity versus femininity. Supposedly, we are suppose to believe that both masculinity and femininity are equal to each and/or have equal value. Once again, I must pose the question of percentage or proportion. What about the very minute detail of anywhere between a 1-5% differential? Some people might argue that such details or small differences don’t really matter but I must beg to differ because even a duality where one thing comes in at 55% and the other thing comes in at 45% really do have serious implications on a variety of other things. Another example would be the duality and/or dichotomy of Left versus Right or liberalism versus conservatism. Some people might say/argue that it’s best to be in the middle or Centrist but is it really? The ultimate reality is that between one side and the other side (Left and Right), one side will produce a society and/or civilization of amazing innovation, creativity, and magnificence. Some people might argue that both sides have their own negatives but at the end of the day, you would still have to pick the lesser of the two evils as uncomfortable/heartbreaking as it may seem. The same can apply to yet another duality/dichotomy which is individualism versus collectivism. Between individualism and collectivism, which one is greater/superior? Contrary to the notion of the benefits/positives associated group work or team work, some of the most amazing discoveries occur with people who isolate themselves from the rest of society. As Nikola Tesla once said, “Be alone, that is the secret of invention; be alone, that is when ideas are born.” So no, two brains aren’t better than one as one brain can be better than many, many brains.

For quite some time now, I have thought about the notion having to do with a very broad theme saying that a paradox constitutes a state of normality but have never really been able to express what I mean. I think I have finally figured out why that is the case because it’s not so much that “a paradox constitutes a state of normality” but rather “a paradox constitutes a state of normality in certain times.” I neglected a very critical factor which revolves around the mystery and/or magic surrounding time. In actuality, it is not so much that duality and/or dichotomy isn’t existent or co-existent but rather there is definitely a side that is ultimately superior to the other. This does not mean that the side that represents inferiority isn’t needed because it is needed in the process of playing that very inferior role for the whole universe or civilization to continue. Even the dichotomy of some kind of “superior-inferior relationship” reflects duality/dichotomy itself which is needed and necessary. So going back to the symbol that represents the Yin and the Yang, perhaps it should be redrawn. Instead of giving the impression as if there is half and half or 50% each, perhaps there should be a total of two circles where you have one circle inside another circle. The circle inside is smaller than the one on the outside. Black would cover the part between the two circles with an area that doesn’t cover as much as the White covering all areas inside the inner circle. In other words, plain and simple, there is more allocation and dedication to the color White (the Yang/Male/Light aspect). Should there also be tiny circle with the respective color of Black and White like in the original symbol of the Yin and the Yang? The answer is no. To do so would taint the purity of both the masculine and feminine energies. The feminization and/or emasculation of males has had a negative effect particularly in Western societies. While the negative effect associated with females is less comparatively speaking, it doesn’t allow for full utilization and/or optimization of the masculine energy. In addition, while at first it may not appear detrimental to females particularly young females, older females may eventually come to understand so and so that’s why there are discussions and Youtube videos centering around how feminism has made women unhappy or has destroyed society.

Here is the symbol for the Yin and the Yang:

Image

Here is what it should really look like (more or less):

Image

So with all of that in mind, as much as some people (I guess P-types in MBTI) wish to believe that there’s really no direct answer in/to life, there in fact is. As much as some people may want to put an equal sign between sets of dichotomies, the reality is that there can only be a greater than or less than sign in lieu. So in essence, it would be as follows:

Masculinity > Femininity

Individualism > Collectivism

Conservatism/Right > Liberalism/Left

Yang > Yin

Thinkers > Feelers (in terms of MBTI)

Eugenics > Dysgenics (seems pretty obvious)

Once again, I must emphasize that the side that represents a lower or lesser quality cannot be eliminated from the equation for they still complement each other regardless as to the degree of quality proportion. In addition, I’m speaking very broadly and generally here and so as always, there can always be a case or argument for the usual exceptions to every rule kind of thing or outliers. I think people tend to forget that it’s actually the average that counts not outliers, and yes, rightfully so, for as much as one may not like, the aggregate does in fact have huge implications.
I think the above is my greatest work this year. :)

Sorry, I don't think I would be able to come up with another amazing piece of work for the remainder of the 2017 year. Maybe next year. Maybe not.

Maybe in a couple of months. Maybe not. I really just don't know. :mrgreen:

Somebody said the following elsewhere:
Has anyone else, besides me, seen any similarities between Hilary and Donald? They both seem to think they can do no wrong, for one. Neither one seems to know when to stop talking, either.
Here's my response:

Yes, I think they're quite similar because Hillary is an ENTJ and Donald is an ESTJ. Both of those MBTI types are Dominant Te types.

I know lots of people think Donald is an ESTP or ENTJ but that's just bullshit. I've been following Donald Trump for a very, very long time back to the very early days of the premiere of The Apprentice. Trump is not Dominant Se as he is Dominant Te. Perhaps former CIA agent Robert David Steele was right when he said that Trump only cares about himself (if memory serves me correctly) or that it's more of Trump having a tendency to care about his people like the way some people would say or have documented Trump being a covert racist so there's some kind of subconscious nationalistic agenda going on. Trump might not be the smartest guy on the planet but he would be smart enough to pull something off like that. The guy clearly has Ne over Ni and so neither ESTP or ENTJ would match that.

Dominant Te types in conjunction with their big letter of being a J-type would think they can do no wrong or that they're probably or most likely right (about a variety of things). The E or extroversion could equate to high energy in the ability to continually talk without feeling tired (as well as the ability/capacity to talk over each other say like in a debate/discussion).
