Chinese Browser MMORPGs are All the Same

In my opinion Nova Genesis is a fine example of a style and story destroyed by ‘events’ and other distractions for the drug-wrecked and mentally retarded by the drg-wrecked and mentally retarded.

MMORPG Weekly

If you’ve ever played a Chinese browser MMORPG, you’ve likely played them all. Whether it’s the heavily advertised, and oddly popular, League of Angels or the more obscure Shadowbound, the simple fact is that all of these browser based MMOs developed in China are basically the same exact game. They’re built off the same engine and feature almost the same exact game mechanics. The easiest way to spot one of these games is to simply look up at the top left corner of the screen. If you see a “battle ranking” or “battle rating”, you’re most certainly playing a Chinese developed web game.

The Satanic Temple – My contemplation

These are the seven fundamental tenets of the TST – The Satanic Temple.

  • One should strive to act with compassion and empathy towards all creatures in accordance with reason.
  • The struggle for justice is an ongoing and necessary pursuit that should prevail over laws and institutions.
  • One’s body is inviolable, subject to one’s own will alone.
  • The freedoms of others should be respected, including the freedom to offend. To willfully and unjustly encroach upon the freedoms of another is to forgo your own.
  • Beliefs should conform to our best scientific understanding of the world. We should take care never to distort scientific facts to fit our beliefs.
  • People are fallible. If we make a mistake, we should do our best to rectify it and resolve any harm that may have been caused.
  • Every tenet is a guiding principle designed to inspire nobility in action and thought. The spirit of compassion, wisdom, and justice should always prevail over the written or spoken word.

Satanism in this modern age

Decades of my lifespan have been wasted, endured, taken place in a society, which had all the scientific information available, but neither laws guaranteeing that we practice what we preach, nor a majority of people who could profit from overpaid academics and their work-shunning elitism and self-glorification.

We cannot breath money, and we cannot breath science. Neither is getting laid with them a form of good sex. Or of a fulfilled life. Due greed’s idiocy gone unscathed we have arrived in this so-called ‘information-age’ with serious environmental damage not just threatening the future of our own species, but actually contaminating and killing millions of lifeforms.

We have managed to drill kids who excel in school, or later at university, but for the price of life-long psychiatric treatment, as the way it was implemented caused tremendous psycho-social deficiencies and impairments, which are still oft unleashed unto whoever happens to meet such persons. They did not fail to be the idols of society, they were betrayed by the abstract believe and irresponsibility of their own elders, be it by bloodline or political establishment.

Making laws and institutions deliver justice instead of becoming bureaucratic obstacles opposing, undermining, and denying justice, at least to those who can’t pay the big money, has always been a perversion of democratic ideals in my own opinion. That doesn’t mean I would be flawless, or automatically ever-innocent, still it means we all could do a little bit better.

When I first visited the TST website I had only ‘It can’t be that much worse than the next-best La Veyian plagiarizer’ in my mind. The tenets I found are by far not the worst I ever read published by Satanists, or people claiming to be Satanists, and I was a member for a certain time of my life. More than ten seconds, to give a hint.

One of the core principles in magick is summarized by a quote. I add it here:

“Those who treat the art of Magic with spiritual contempt receive exactly what they ask for — and deserve. The true Magi are those who live Magic, and not merely tinker with it. Magicians are not made, they make themselves. That is what this book is about .” Quote from Dr. Israel Regardie

Magicians, even though the term is a very outdated and limited summary for modern occult practitioners, make themselves. Precisely what has always separated us from religion. That was not separatism, it was the nature and truth of the matter by the very facts. There is no extra-cushioned, well-dished time and place for us in the adult world of everyday life, until we produce that due our own work and efforts.

No more magick for the masses

Political parties, communal interest groups, and personal activism, which is received well by our fellow human beings, all have their own demands, their own rules, and their own expectations. We can face the reality of that each time, or flee into drug-crazed, or even proper, spiritual phantasms. Solving problems needs contemplation, education, and efforts.

I once faced that day, when renaming my crappy, crude efforts from ‘Attempted Poetry’ into ‘Committed crimes against the Muse’ seemed a very smart choice… One poem speaking of it, though superficially not Satanic:

We served our nation

faced all our demons

worked that old farm.

Now lets get us happy

as our hearts still beat

& our blood’s still warm!

Instead of expecting anybody to need or appreciate my commenting on the seven tenets of the TST I decided for this final comment:

‘Rejoice in every opportunity to overcome your own prejudices and ignoramuses, as the chance to solve problems, the chance to develop as a personality, and the chance to be an active member of the society we live in IS precious, and worthy of some work to maintain and improve it.’

Wuxia Dreams – My note on Wing/Ving Tsun/Chun enthusiasm…

I note this expecting 99,9% antagonism, scepticism, and rejection. I do so for the chosen few who really have to survive a street crime or murder attempt. I am 44 years old, have survived the cold of one winter sleeping on asphalt (as a bum in our supposedly criminal scene), and was a small-scale criminal for around 3 or 4 decades of my lifespan. I stopped, when love and duty became better values to me.

My most adored Sifu and Sihing is life itself, as the crucial lessons always stem from there.

One of the better videos I watched on the main topic here is: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=5SnfZxgup04

My main reason for hating the fakes & frauds on certain topics is that they know they are sending people towards certain death, dire mutilation, and costly abuse. Even more dangerous it is with our own ignorance and delusions. Bloodshed and survival of crime have zero place for comforting egos!

I agree with mature attempts alike: http://www.samharris.org/blog/item/the-truth-about-violence/ 

Still that does not make me an expert on street-survival, crime-prevention, or martial arts. I only practiced Dr. Leung Ting’s Dynamic Wing Tsun in hospital, on the day the doctors told me I would never do martial arts again. I habitually repeat some basics since then.

And on credentials which ain’t really my own achievements: My own most respected teacher was Dieter Knüttel, by now Grandmaster and ‘Bundestrainer’ of Modern Arnis, an armed filipino martial art. I prefer Muay Thai based stuff though. My best MMA teacher so far was a wanted murderer from Poland, who was among the bunch of bums I had to survive with. He was half my weight and nearly crushed my spine with the ease of a ‘throwing technique’ applied properly. But he is imprisoned now.

The bad news is: I have no martial arts product to sell, so those who want to fall prey to me must purchase my poetry ebook or click ‘gift me a coffee’ on my pseudo-landing page.

Frauds In The Martial Sciences……

I came here during a research on a different topic. I am 44 years old, have survived the cold of one winter sleeping on asphalt (as a bum in our supposedly criminal scene), and was a small-scale criminal for around 3 or 4 decades of my lifespan. I stopped, when love and duty became better values to me.

People like Marc ‘Animal’ McYoung, Tony Blauer and so forth, are by now OLD. They are off the streets, where the real crimes and the real killings happen. They have the ambition to sell their ‘convenient solutions’, which does tweak their own judgment a little bit (proven by science).

One reason no martial arts will be a guarantee in self-defense is that it cannot block, dodge, or parry any form of poison or disease. Half the people disagreeing are homosexuals who are just too ill-informed to understand that their narcissistic need for attention is legitimate, but as well a progressing mental illness getting dangerous to themselves and others.

The other is immature and ignorant people needing to reinforce their own delusions and prejudices. A human factor, for those who shun the work to really discipline and develop themselves WILL always need excuses and postures.

Okay there are literally con men and women in all walks of life.  This is also true in the Martial Sciences.  While the majority of martial practitoners are not frauds.  They certainly are out there.  We have all met that guy or gal who simply has too good of a story about their training in the Martial Sciences. (at least most of us have)  Usually when it is too good to be true then it probably is.  As a practitioner you owe it to yourself to know who you are training with.  Before you train with somebody do a little research.  Look into their background in the Martial Sciences.  Find out who they have trained with and see if you can interview or talk to any of their current students.  Even more importantly look online to see if they have ever been arrested.  Training with someone is a big deal on…
