Morality is full of it. [Dec. 3rd, 2005|09:49 pm]
"It is nothing more than a moral prejudice that truth is worth more than semblance; it is, in fact, the worst proved supposition in the world. So much must be conceded: there could have been no life at all except upon the basis of perspective estimates and semblances; and if, with the virtuous enthusiasm and stupidity of many philosophers, one wished to do away altogether with the "seeming world"--well, granted that YOU could do that,--at least nothing of your "truth" would thereby remain!" (Nietzsche, Beyond Good and Evil, pg. 26)

I'll try to break it down a little so you guys understand. o_o;

Moral prejudice - Morality is prejudiced, due to the fact that, morality itself, is based upon how society has defined it over time. We have no way of telling what is really good or bad, in terms of morality, because it is, in fact, society that fabricated that idea into people's minds. Beyond society's definition of morality is something more.

Semblance - the outward appearance of something; representation

Truth - purest form; below the surface of semblance

Nietzsche is saying that it is a moral prejudice that truth, is worth more than it's outward appearance to society. We as a society, live and base our lives on the semblance of that truth. This means that we define as we see. We cannot grasp beyond that outward appearance because it does not exist in the first place. Society thinks that they are defining "truth", when in actuality, society is only defining what is the semblance or the outside appearance of that "truth". Since we are living in a world based upon semblance, without that semblance, we have nothing to live with.

"...one wished to do away altogether with the "seeming world"--well, granted that YOU could do that,--at least nothing of your "truth" would thereby remain!"

Setting yourself away from that "seeming world", is possible, but since "truth" does not exist in the first place, then you'll have "no truth that would remain."

Hmm... [Nov. 2nd, 2005|12:39 am]

My regular comp is down atm, I'm going to the tech tomorrow to see what the problem is. I'll be using my parents' laptop for a while, so teamspeak won't be available either until the problem is fixed. I'm downloading DA to see the new features and all, too. ^^

OMG Delana is so being screwed over [Nov. 1st, 2005|03:15 am]
I know I prolly dun need to rant about this here, but damnit, this pisses me off. Delana is being removed and barred for no reason. Worst punishment she should recieve is probation. I have an idea, since its Kakarott and Cazia doing this, anyone want to start an anti-Anaman Pact movement? Cause they are taking over Mileth Politics and running them to shit. Though, who can say that Mileth hasn't been going downhill for ages now. I know mommeh will agree with that.

Welcome Meallaire! [Oct. 28th, 2005|12:03 am]
[mood |chipperchipper]

This is the first post for this journal. I would like to welcome all of you to the Meallaire Community on Live Journal! I have been a Live Journal member for years and would love to be able to have the Meallaire family on Live Journal to share the experience. Feel free to post anything that you feel like saying. If you just feel like ranting, bored, something great just happened, etc. It doesn't matter. This community is out of character so don't feel like you have to talk about in game experiences, although if you would like to that is just fine.

Well, enjoy.
