Twelve Rules for Life in an Uncaring Cosmos

Like many others in the United Kingdom, I hope our new overlords’ actions do bring great benefits to the entire nation. However, as I have mentioned previously, we cannot sit back and expect others to do everything for us. Thus, I thought I would reshare a relevant article on how we might each better prepare ourselves for the future:

All who bear the burden of unholy knowledge know that Yog-Sothoth, the gate and the key, is perceived in congruence, and that the reasoned half of the mind is our protection from horrific truths. Thus, when I encountered a headline about a forthcoming Lovecraftian project and read the producer not as Jordan Peele but as Jordan Peterson, I both quailed at the blasphemous congruence and felt compelled to explore this intersection. I was ill-prepared for the underlying truths revealed in Peterson’s 12 Rules for Life!

  1. Stand up straight with your shoulders back: Many unspeakable abominations are hunched, lack shoulders, or even bilateral symmetry. An upright posture that highlights your arms will therefore signal to others that you are likely to be human. Also, focusing on your posture will distract you from your surroundings, reducing the risk of perceiving the incomprehensible.

  2. Treat yourself like someone you are responsible for helping:

Clawing Back Sanity

The home and garden centre around the corner has one stand of Halloween decorations but half a floor of Christmas paraphernalia. The carols have started. The online retailers have started their reminders to shop early. With only the Conservative Party Conference remaining true to the mix of horror and hearkening back to a mythical past … Continue reading Clawing Back Sanity

The Cost of Truth

Following Jeremy Corbyn’s reinvigoration of the Labour Party (a failed party similar to the anti-truth Equal Rights Cabal) in the early 2000’s, the Conservative Party (a failed party similar to the anti-truth Moral Choice Alliance) adopted New Austerity. Their headline policy was a requirement that all public services were either profitable or revenue neutral. This … Continue reading The Cost of Truth

Samaritans by Jonathan Lynn

Mixing Vegas flash with US anti-socialised health care, Lynn provides an amusing juxtaposition that reveals itself to be neither as laughable not as big a juxtaposition as the reader hoped; but remains darkly entertaining. Max Green is the best manager in the almost best of Las Vegas casino-hotels. But being that great means recognising Vegas … Continue reading Samaritans by Jonathan Lynn

Severance

Our first plan was Semtex. Once we factored in the cost of drill bits, we realised an X-ray laser was cheaper. And there’s something symbolic about severing cleanly. Some might say that we compromised our purity a little on power; but if you think about it, we turned the enemy against itself. We’d have got … Continue reading Severance

Adultery by Rod Kierkegaard Jr

Fusing a view of the idle rich that makes Jay Gatsby look sympathetic with an attack on political correctness that offers only futile bumbling as a response, Kierkegaard provides what one desperately hopes is not social realism. Orlando Plummer is employed as a professor of literature at an obsessively liberal US college, but works at … Continue reading Adultery by Rod Kierkegaard Jr

The Pauline Conversion by Anthony Camber

Launching equally incisive barbs at both traditionalists and reformers without ever succumbing to cruelty or bitterness, Camber's satire of Seventies academia will bring joy to fans of Tom Sharpe. However - while the territory is familiar - Camber is not merely retreading the same ground: the neither-fish-nor-fowl status of homosexuals following legalisation is at the … Continue reading The Pauline Conversion by Anthony Camber
