Message from Corset in /leftypol/ International #english_theory
I think I understand now. Making art is just apart of human life. It is perverts by profit motives and other falsehoods. But when the perversion is gone, humans are able to express themselves with better quality. They remove perversion with materialist thought. But art is not the aim. Materialist thought and Marxist thought just allows humans to express with better qualify, free from perverted motives.
nothing is ultimate, friend.
Matter is moving.
Change is flowing.
@Corset How much should revolutionaries indulge in music? Is it only to increase revolution?
And everything is ultimate at the same time.
Matter is a funny substance
Very prone to change
But always present
every fkin time
Ha. Thanks for your help.
How can be something that always is?
And always will be?
Sometimes objective comes too close subjective.
Or is it the opposite?
Or is it happaning all the time?
Now I will know, if something is good, it depends on its quality.
are you a material yourself?
Yes, I am now.
Not since right now, since maybe a month ago. Then I did not know; agnostic. Wanted to believe that saw no logical way. Now I see my cowardice.
You mean historical materialism or other secular explanation like determinism? Is this an exam?
@Deleted User What qualitative, quantitative changes in your essence did you experience?
Tension and then freedom. I combined the best of both.
I had experienced what I thought were 'mystical' experiences, that I could only experience being close to the supernatural, or at least entertaining thoughts of the supernatural. This created tension because I knew in my mind the supernatural did not exist. But then, when I read Marx and about Dialectical Materialism, it filled the supernatural need. And now I have piece of mind and piece of heart together, with no tension. I have been freed.
@Deleted User Materialism is a cure for dialectical mind. But there are not many to be cured.
Most material is idealist. One sided. Very limited.
At this moment
Even Hegel could not escape his idealism.
but there is a way
Yes, materialism was my cure. But what did you mean by 'a way'? What way?
It changed the way I looked at the world.
People who used to impress me no longer impress me.
