I recently received an interesting comment and several good questions concerning how art and artistic expression fits into and relates to Forbidden Truth. I will address this issue in comprehensive detail in this essay, but first, in order for the backstory to be clear, here is My original blog post which prompted the comment:
And here is the full comment itself, in italics and quotation marks, so as not to be confused with My brilliant reply, which immediately follows the comment:
“I have always wondered what your view of art, and creative expression in general is. The only thing that comes to mind is in the manifesto, where you pointed out that many of society’s superiors, especially cathartic avengers, tend to be talented at some form of art. Examples I can think of are Charles Manson’s music and visual arts and crafts, or the articulate, expressive writing ability of Charles Starkweather, and John Wayne Gacy’s paintings.
I can see how a desire to express oneself artistically is evidence of several superior traits, such as sensitivity, depth and even reflectivity.
Over the last few years, and ESPECIALLY after reading forbiddentruth, I have lost a lot of my ability to recognise much value in active creation or creativity, and in its place developed a much greater appreciation for the poignant beauty of destruction.
I can’t put my finger on why. I can’t draw but am talented at music and creative writing and stopped doing both because I lost passion for it. As I become more hateful and disconnected from humanity, I see creating as impotent. Why create? Why add something to this pathetic world when you could be destroying it?
I think in my mind I have been confused by humanity’s inferior view of art, and how much “art” is used synonymously with “entertainment”. By that I mean, it is seen ad something that is created to be appreciated or rejected or judged by others, rather than something the artist does for himself.
I suppose I am asking your view because I enjoy your creative activities. Your poem about the germanwings flight is awesome, and I have watched the Full Force Frank video countless times, wide-eyed, grinning ear to ear. It inspires me to want to reawaken my passion for it, and create art in a Superior way, like you have, but my understanding of art has been too confused and scrambled by humanity’s inferior use of it that I no longer understand how to appreciate it.
If one creates art for oneself, then how is he expressing himself? I can only understand expression as being in relation to OTHERS, something that is below me.”
Let us begin by defining art and artistry within the proper parameters of Forbidden Truth. Art must be understood and undertaken by the Superior thinker, as the creative expression of factual Truth, absent distortion, embellishment, or any overt attempt to deceive Self or others. All that an individual Superior chooses to create, is an expression of personal creativity, which is inherently artistic. All acts of external destruction alter existing landscapes, or to be more precisely accurate, existing mindscapes, be it on a small-scale or a larger scale lavel. Destruction is creation, because whatever alters an existing universe as perceived by others, creates a new and different universe.
Therefore, the creation of all art, and every act of artistic expression, is fully compatible with expression, revelation, and personal communion with Forbidden Truth. But at the same time, all art and artistic expression can be directly use to deny, distort, and escape from Forbidden Truth. Which of the two paths is achieved, and to what degree, on a personal level, depends entirely on the motivational intent of the individual, and his capacity to recognize and appreciate Forbidden Truth.
All communication must always be Self-directed, this is a primate mandate for the seeker of Truth. Art and artistic expression is both a personal creation, and a form of communication. As long as it is properly motivated by personal determination to exalt Self and Truth, it need not betray or compromise either.
Now, let us clearly understand that the creation of all art, and all artistic expression, is decreed by society and government to be a delivered message to others, something to be done in order to try to enlighten or entertain or inspire or impact others. This entire concept is utterly invalid and must be proactively rejected as constituting yet another effort by society to enslave minds and to control reality perception, as well as to impose censorship of personal expression and creation.
Everything that is done in an attempt to influence or impact others, is a compromise of Self-expression. It constitutes Self-censorship because anytime you are tailoring a message to others, you are inhibiting and distorting the valid dialogue you must undertake with Self. It is this dialogue which unveils and expresses and deepens all Truth perception. It is this dialogue which expands the universe of Self.
Let all creation be appreciated for its capacity to destroy, and let all destruction be understood within core consciousness, as a proactive form of creation. The Superior mind is inherently creative, because it is free of social, governmental, cultural, familial, mystical, and all other forms of bondage. The foundational act of becoming a Superior, requires boundless degrees of artistic freedom and talent, merely to fully envision the alternate universe of cloaked and Forbidden Truth which the individual must discover, uncover, dissect to every nuance, and integrate to core consciousness.
Every pre-planned and Self-chosen murder is a premier work of art, an artistic creation which puts almost all other types of artistic expression to shame. Every Self-chosen act of murder is mindful, the opposite of mindless. All pre-planned and Self-chosen acts of murder must be understood as bold, dynamic, enigmatic, real-time and enduring artistic statements of Truth. Creation via destruction, at its best. It is very important to note, however, the clear distinction I am drawing between pre-planned and Self-chosen acts of murder, as opposed to an unplanned murder which may occur during the commission of an armed robbery, for example, or a socially promoted murder such as hunting, abortion, or the death penalty. Carrying out such murders may still qualify as personal artistic expression, but the Forbidden Truth element of mindfulness and creative freedom of expression is lost and destroyed, or at the very least severely compromised.
The Superior is always appreciative of the lyrical artistry inherent in dynamic and uniquely Self-chosen violence. A portrait of Truth is always painted by the actions of personal predators who are born human, quite different from other animal predators who are primarily motivated by hunger or natural instinct, or a combination of both.
If you carefully dissect and immerse Yourself in the known life path actions of infamous murderers, from Andrew Kehoe to Ted Bundy, Howard Unruh to Jeffrey Dahmer, Timothy McVeigh to Dylan Klebold, John Hinckley Jr. to Lee Harvey Oswald, Jim Jones to Charles Manson, the lyrical artistry of their personal expressions of True Reality, shine with a beauty, a depth, an intricacy, that no painting, no drawing, no writing, and no song, can ever achieve or attain.
All Self-inspired murderers are good at expressing themselves. Their act(s) of murder prove this. Therefore, logic dictates that the odds are high that Self-inspired murderers will be motivated to pursue other forms of artistic expression, painting, drawing, writing, etc… The inspiration to create is the inspiration to express, to form a new mindscape for Self, where none existed before, or to alter forever an existing mindscape. You know Yourself by the things that you do, within your mind as fantasy, and/or given external form via a deed, regardless of whether the deed directly impacts others.
If I write My autobiography, its existence within the universe of Me is exactly the same, if no other living thing ever sees it or even knows it exists, in comparison to billions of human beings or even Superior extraterrestrials, reading it millions of times over. There is no difference to Me, the creation is the same, inspired by Me, created by Me, created for Me, owned by Me, by my conscious awareness of it, and of what I have done.
Every fantasy is a work of art. Every Conscious Dream is a work of art. And every idea which challenges the existing matrix of universal illusion, is a work of art. And how are these things created? Via thought, the canvas of the mind, your unique mindscape. The artist is the art, and the art is not created via a pen or brush or guitar, the art is created by the thought, by every integrating and shifting thought of the individual mind.
Transcending your humanity and claiming ownership of a universe that you have proactively created, as I have done, is a premier work of art. And art is not for public or external consumption. Art is something you create in order to nurture Yourself and the Truths you recognize, as well as the True Realities which have been externally imposed and inflicted upon you.
Nothing I have done in My artistic journey has been motivated by any desire or attempt to impact others. All of My artistic achievements have been messages to Self, actions undertaken to honor, strengthen, glorify Myself. Why have I made a small portion of My artistic creations publicly available? Simply as a mild form of personal amusement and Self-stimulation. It is enjoyable to Me, to mock humanity, to show and to tell something that I am dissecting, why and how I am dissecting it. But affecting the consciousness of others is not My primary motivation, not even close. And such impact has never been necessary to Me.
For example, I only published 60% of the xerox zine content I created between 1989-1991. The remainder I chose to keep private. I only released to the outside world, approximately 20 hours of the more than 300 hours of Super-vhs camcorder video recordings I created. I have a 3000 word handwritten autobiography which I have never publicly released and never plan to. And I continue to add to private journals in which I write essays and poems which I do not publish online and have no plans to ever publish online. All that I create, is Self-directed and Self-motivated, to enhance My personal universe, not to impact others.
Addressing your comment more personally, you write that the embrace of some level of Forbidden Truth has dulled your inspiration to create, but sharpened your motivational impulse to destroy. The Truth is, as I have already articulated here, that to destroy is to create. The embrace of Forbidden Truth is itself a premier form of creation. You are creating a new universe of mind. You are destroying myths, delusions, illusions, beliefs, rationalizations, hypocrisy. Just as My written Manifesto exists as artistic creation to Me, the changes of mind you experience as a result of integrating My Manifesto to your consciousness and your True Reality, exist as artistic creation, for you.
The fact is, there is no “value”, external to Self-realization, Self-love, Self-worship, and Self-help, in anything that any of us have, can, or will do. The Forbidden Truths of death prove this factual reality. The Superior mind is motivated to create, solely to honor Self and Truth. It is within this path that artistic creativity must be understood, and can flourish. Every idea is a work of art, created by your brain. Every realization of Truth is a work of art, unique to you as an individual, nuanced and branched, like a tree. Are any two trees the same?? No. Every tree is unique, its branches positioned differently, its leaves positioned differently, and always changing, in subtle ways, in real-time.
Understand your own brain as a tree, alive and changing, reactive yet fully under your control and ownership. Every thought creates an altered mindscape, which you can and you do express in many different ways, internal and external to Self. The thought does not need to become a poem or a painting. The artistry is in the thought itself, and how it alters your brain, and therefore the universe, your universe.
I paint and I draw and I write the greatest masterpiece the universe has ever seen, each and every day. The masterpiece is My own brain, changing for the better, uniquely changing, becoming ever more magnificant with each stroke of the pen or brush. Every thought is a stroke, a new sentence, a new lyric roared out…. Despite all my rage I am still just a rat in a CAAAAGE!!!!! Every thought changes and creates Me, as the artist becomes the art.
How am I inspired to externally create something like the Germanwings poem, or My unique zine collages or My camcorder videos?? By an overflow of personal pride and Self-love, an ego maximized and ready to burst. Inspiration is not something that a top-level Superior needs to work at creating within Himself. Rather, inspiration is always tugging at the mind, asking/demanding: Is today a good day to disturb the universe I so despise? Or, is today a good day to try to destroy the universe I so despise?? Everything I create is rooted with the open acknowledgent of My sacred right to destroy.
There is an additional aspect to art and artistic expression that must be comprehensively dissected. This is the very real issue of how and why humans and human society & government uses art and artistic expression to negate, reject, deny, distort, and destroy Truth. I will address this very important issue in My very next essay, but it should be understood as concurrent to the Truths I am revealing here in this essay. I only separate it for the purpose of reducing the length of this essay.
