What is it with all these people with "dark" names?
 
Seriously?

Is there some Jungian personality struggle with the shadow that video gamers have?

OK. Stop.

The dark side (dork side) could be seen as a snare and a trap, it is not wise to mire oneself in it.

The cosmic joke: the bad guy on TV that gets defeated MIGHT be a trick. The "enemy" in the game MIGHT be a way to get you to think in a distorted manner.

BUT...there might be a reason. Follow the "dork side" long enough and you might just find out why. But seriously, you don't want to. Ech.

Dark names? What dark names?

Ok Reaper_Man, let me explain it.

You are in your element. LEAD.

In the art-ificial world, lead is as BASE as things get. It's even worse than iron, which is heavy, clunky and hard in itself.

Lead let's NO LIGHT in. As in, its a way to exist in TOTAL ignorance. It's undesirable, incapable of doing anything but weighing you down and burdening you.

EDIT: If there were a light as powerful as a gamma ray, lead would BLOCK it.

Of course, one could try to transmute lead to gold, but you know how that works out. Maybe it works as a metaphor though?

My name has both "white" and "light" in it, but it has nothing to do with any symbolism.

Whole 'nother story behind it.

JadussD 12-07-2008 10:41 PM

White Light Brown, eh? Interesting name; do tell the origin.

Iconoclast 12-07-2008 11:31 PM

So I interrupt with wonder: If anything what does my name mean to thee?

symbolic X 12-07-2008 11:31 PM

I do not condone or understand what some of you guys are saying.

A smasher of images, a destroyer of illusions. One who destroys appearances, facades and artificesbto reveal what lies beyond.

Or it could just be a really cool rebellious sounding name.

Iconoclast 12-07-2008 11:45 PM

Then in time it means nothing.

JadussD 12-08-2008 12:06 AM

Iconoclasm
 
Well let's look at iconoclasm.

At one point I was an avid smasher of images; I stood up for what I thought was the truth, and everything was all rebellious and dandy. However, I found out that THEY thought of pretty much EVERY scenario of rebellion and how to counter it.

Then the situation is something like: "wha--at?! You mean, they really do go to hell---w-w-wait, that's too much, wait, I'm totally fucked if I don't conform...wait, eternal fire...shit, this whole metasphysics thing opens up a whole new dimension of possibilities. I mean, if its even possible for metaphysics to be valid, we're openning up a whole canister off whoopass. Yikes!"

And then I was defeated by Them.

Iconoclast 12-08-2008 12:44 AM

...What??

Perhaps "them" is the only dark name in this thread.

Yes. Yes, and there is no "you", the idea of "you" gives birth to untold pain, separation and illusion.

The problem is...well I'll be honest: total, unimaginable fear and terror, visions of eternies of agony, maledictions of overgrown tribal deities, demiurges spilling from the lips of Greek philosophers into unimaginable terrorizers, denied darkness congealing into malefic adversaries, portions of the brain given autonomy to destroy the rest. Horrible waking dreams of agony, whimpering in confusion, art-raped by the shadows of 2 millenia of sickness.

I'd go on, but it just gets worse.

There *is* no dark side. There are only you and useless thoughts about it.

At one point I was very much into philosophy and deep meaningless thoughts like your last posts/threads. Then I had a revelation and realised that it don't mean a thing and that it just detracts from my experience of life.

And "Them" would be...?

... What is the point of this thread?

Aside from a couch philosopher having a wank fest?

You just answered your own question ;)

Reaper man 12-08-2008 07:37 PM

I'm almost tempted to make a forum for discussing philosophical topics and name it "JadussD"

...almost

Haoie 12-10-2008 08:20 PM

But all the cool kids do it!!

There's not much to it, really. Anytime I would hang out with my friends (all of which are black), and something would come up in conversation about race, everyone would forgive my whiteness, saying "You're not white, you're more like a white/light brown."

So it kind of stuck after a while, and I actually rap now with that alias. :)

Ummmmmmm........ Ok.

that's all you had to add to the conversation? That's almost as bad as "me too."

I sure do hope you post things that are more constructive in the future, for your sake.

Brooksee 02-01-2009 12:44 PM

interesting post...

Who got into the tainted hummus?

Adremalech The Wroth 02-01-2009 04:04 PM

hmm...philosophy...
the great killer of civilization >.>
i suppose i must be "dark" as well...

Iconoclast 02-01-2009 04:47 PM

I doubt it.

Adremalech The Wroth 02-01-2009 05:22 PM

you shouldnt...
take the roman empire for example as soon as people began "philosophizing" they became corrupt and lazy and the empire crumbled.
not that im bashing you or anything but altogether this thread makes no sense.

Iconoclast 02-01-2009 09:11 PM

Neither does this. XD

HaxorKyo 02-01-2009 10:21 PM

@ Reaperman: my bad, i didn't get what they were talking about.
