"As we've seen, a rat being shocked activates a stress
response. But a rat being shocked who can then bite the hell
out of another rat has less of a stress response."

The ownmost nonrelational possibility not-to-be-bypassed is
certain. The mode of being certain of it is determined by
the disclosedness corresponding to it. But Da-sein discloses
the certain possibility of death as possibility only by
making this possibility as its ownmost potentiality-of-being
possible in anticipating it.

- M. Heidegger, 1927

Sounds a bit wanky to me; and debatable.

Heidegger is definitely a wanker.

Weirdly, enough, if you master his technical vocabulary what
he's saying is pretty straight-forward and down to earth.

In that passage he's basically simply indicating that the
knowledge of our own future death/mortality is certain and
thus not empirically derived from the empirical fact that
other people die. And he's saying that our life's projects
are formed by being limited by death.

lol what about that german immanuel kant, isn't he a wanker
too? maybe he isn't, i don't know. i'm getting more like an
asshole vibe from him, like a cheeky bastard.

"Being and stability are regarded by our contemporaries as
akin to death; they cannot live unless they act, fret, or
distract themselves with this or that. Their spirit
(provided we can still talk about a spirit in their case)
feeds only on sensations and on dynamism, thus becoming the
vehicle for the incarnation of darker forces." - Julius
Evola

"I am your lord and saviour. I created the heavens and the
earth. You are all my children, created in my image...

...that said, I've REALLY got a complex about my foreskin,
so if you will, Abraham, just pass on that I'd like everyone
from now on all to slice a bit off at birth, that'd be
great. Thanks, k, caio. :)"

the longest sentence in kant criqitue of pure
reason
:

In truth, if the empirical philosopher had no other purpose
in the
establishment of his antithesis than to check the
presumption of a
reason which mistakes its true destination, which boasts of
its insight
and its knowledge, just where all insight and knowledge
cease to
exist, and regards that which is valid only in relation to a
practical
interest, as an advancement of the speculative interests of
the mind
(in order, when it is convenient for itself, to break the
thread of our
physical investigations, and, under pretence of extending
our cognition,
connect them with transcendental ideas, by means of which we
really know
only that we know nothing)--if, I say, the empiricist rested
satisfied
with this benefit, the principle advanced by him would be a
maxim
recommending moderation in the pretensions of reason and
modesty in its
affirmations, and at the same time would direct us to the
right mode
of extending the province of the understanding, by the help
of the only
true teacher, experience.

bah formatting:

If the empirical philosopher had no other purpose in
propounding his antithesis than to subdue the rashness and
presumption of those who so far misconstrue the true
vocation of reason as to boast of insight and knowledge just
where true insight and knowledge cease, and to represent as
furthering speculative interests that which is valid only in
relation to practical interests (in order, as may suit their
convenience, to break the thread of physical enquiries, and
then under the pretence of extending knowledge to fasten it
to transcendental ideas, through which we really know only
that we know nothing)--if, I say, the empiricist were
satisfied with this, his principle would be a maxim urging
moderation in our pretensions, modesty in our assertions,
and yet at the same time the greatest possible extension of
our understanding, through the teacher fittingly assigned to
us, namely, through experience.

It's actually not as long as i thought it would be, but its
pretty long, ~160 words-ish?

Ha ha! Fair enough. There’s too many to think of and make
a chart, so I’ll go with this Albert Camus one:

“Don’t walk in front of me, I may not want to follow,
don’t walk behind me, I may not want to lead, just walk
beside me, and be my friend.”

"Truly fertile Music, the only kind that will move us, that
we shall truly appreciate, will be a Music conducive to
Dream, which banishes all reason and analysis. One must not
wish first to understand and then to feel. Art does not
tolerate Reason."

And then it happened—the attack, the trance,
Or one of my old fits. There sat by chance
A doctor in the front row. At his feet
Patly I fell. My heart had stopped to beat,
It seems, and several moments passed before
It heaved and went on trudging to a more
Conclusive destination. Give me now
Your full attention.

I can’t tell you how
I knew—but I did know that I had crossed
The border. Everything I loved was lost
But no aorta could report regret.
A sun of rubber was convulsed and set;
And blood-black nothingness began to spin
A system of cells interlinked within
Cells interlinked within cells interlinked
Within one stem. And dreadfully distinct
Against the dark, a tall white fountain played.

I realized, of course, that it was made
Not of our atoms; that the sense behind
The scene was not our sense. In life, the mind
Of any man is quick to recognize
Natural shams, and then before his eyes
The reed becomes a bird, the knobby twig
An inchworm, and the cobra head, a big
Wickedly folded moth. But in the case
Of my white fountain what it did replace
Perceptually was something that, I felt,
Could be grasped only by whoever dwelt
In the strange world where I was a mere stray.

And presently I saw it melt away:
Though still unconscious, I was back on earth.
The tale I told provoked my doctor’s mirth.
He doubted very much that in the state
He found me in “one could hallucinate
Or dream in any sense. Later, perhaps,
But not during the actual collapse.
No, Mr. Shade.”

But, Doctor, I was dead!
He smiled. “Not quite: just half a shade,” he said.

- Vladimir Nabokov, Pale Fire
