things are not things but debates on how things should be

things are archetypes- or blueprints-concepts-of how things should be. like the clothing drawer in the bedroom is not a clothing drawer, it is an example/manifestation/attempt of the underlying eternal blueprint of what a clothing drawer is, and it's function. to go deeper in this case, it is a place of storage etc.

makes you question what does IS mean. a cabinet IS not a cabinet, but a creation from the underlying idea of what a cabinet is. this underlying framework existed before the cabinet was made. it is eternal.

can apply this to people too...people are not people but debates on how people should be. i've had this thought process before. i carry myself as, not just myself, but as an example of how someone OUGHT to live - link to essay on people are walking philosophies.

this is what music is. music, in some sense, is a debate. (i wrote this somewhere...) i am at war with justin bieber in a way: trying to steer the collective consciousness. make new framework on this and link it.

wrote a lot in the frameworks version ^

and thus even this dark website itself implies, insinuates, and affirms that this is what every artist out to do..to catalog their work. to aggregate, to build, to iterate, to display it authentically as one can.

this might be why im so god damn competitive.

(see for the three layers of being).

but here is the thing, in reference to

, even though a thing may be a debate, it still needs things that are NOT it to debate with for its own existence.

it needs the other side of the debate to enhance its own...thus perhaps to frame it as a DEBATE is wrong, but as a conversation or conference of sorts....reference with compositional framework on how music is a debate too

but there is feeling of drive within me thats at war and debate with other musicians, that DARK is to diffuse and suffuse those cracks. but we are not under competition because we are all one....the existence of dark is enhanced but the existence of justin beiber. (reference that composition framework on music being a debate too- did i make it already?? if not make one).

and it is true to say, that to imitate another artist, like copying animals as leaders, is doing both you harm and animals as leaders, that's why there is so much community and collective consciousness vitriol when someone imitates another artist.

instead, one must be divergent to another artist, because to get isness with yourself IS to enhance the isness of another artist too.

man reality is so layered ! maybe i'll make a seperate essay in three layers of being.

satirically, everything is an ad for itself. nike logo shirt is a clear example. but even the door connecting my living room to my bedroom is an ad for that door. both surface-level reality/commercially (brings attention to the manufacturer of door), but also existentially.

create new essay on "is attention a zero-sum game? like if music and things are debates, and trying to compete for attentions etc. then we really are at war here. but maybe attention is.l not zero sum, for there is a growth and infinite to it. but if REALITY IS INDEED ZERO SUM- AND THINGS ARE COMPETING HOW DO WE RECONCILE THE FACT THAT THINGS ARE THEN BOTH DEBATES BUT ALSO REQUIRE THE CONTRAST OF DEBATES IN ORDER TO EXIST

that x files episode of the writer, season 6, "words are not things but signs to things" or something like that, am paraphrasing.

and thus this website is a prime example of this...i'm not just showcasing my approach and my mind, but AN approach and A mind...and i get existential vibes thinking about this and framing it this way.

same with music...this is war. this is what music is. music, in some sense, is a debate. (i wrote this somewhere...) i am at war with justin bieber in a way: trying to steer the collective consciousness. make new framework on this and link it. link with existential essay in debate too:

in some sense, what we are trying to do as artists is chase the constant refinement of ones craft into the perfectly imperfectly perfect. at least for me, it is a refinement and sculpting of true reality and vision, and of utopia. a carving.

this is what is implied in, say, bodybuilding- how the perfect man OUGHT to look, at least that is what is implied or affirmed, or at least the original goal of bodybuilding. to attain the perfect and thus what all men should strive for. but then you see shit like trystan lee and the roided megalomaniacal ronnie coleman and phil heath and you realize that collective consciousness, at least a large part of it, has lost its way. and thus the artist needs to direct collective consciousness back to the path that he/she thinks is the real "ought", the real vision of what he she thinks is the real "divine".

The final design. That is what we are converging towards. all genres and styles are simply circuitous routes trying t figure out what that final design is. the most rightous. the most just. the sublime. the perfect. the perfect dark.
