- As for the blog's name: -

I was @ Gustav Ericsson's sight, - Anzenkai, and I was looking at Nishijima Roshi’s calligraphies over there. Particularly there is one - "seki shin hen pen" - about which Gustav has earlier said in a blog post that it is Nishijima's favorite phrase from Master Dogen.

This seemed strange to me. It was not what I would expect Nishijima Roshi's favorite phrase to be. It seemed it could be some Rinzai master's favorite quote, - it seems to express continuous and constant sincerity, - but it did not seem to fit my view of the way Nishijima Roshi saw things.

So - consequently - I tried to think what would I expect his favorite quote to be. But all phrases I could think of did not seem to fit just what I might have had in mind.

So I tried to come up with what I would see it as, - and what I have come up with - is - "this universe out here".

- And this seems to be the right name for this blog here too.

- Definitely.                                                 ________________________

Inviting Furious Attacks off the Light of Day and the Eyes of the Blind

I wrote this on 7.7.16. - I posted it first on September 8th, but deleted it on the 18. I initially intended to delete it then after a few days. I think the title makes the reason obvious. It is again posted today - October 30, - and I also initially intended to have it again on about that time, though I was unsure.

So if you have not read it then, do now. If you like.

(the rest is unchanged) As follows: (the rest is unchanged)

There is no clearer example of how could human thought be corrupted in our times and in contemporary society than the existing view having appeared in the last decades of homosexuality and neighbouring phenomena. - What is called LHTB is practically sickening humanity. Not through existence - I don’t mean that, - but through preaching. This could only be compared to the preaching of Nazism in the ’30, as it seems. Of course they do not preach violence or hatred but the wrongness and severe twist (to say the least) of reality is matching. - The extent to which some of what may be the most distorted phenomena of human mentality - putting aside some odd extremes we may always be able to find, - has been able to gain legitimacy and even be viewed by many as an expression of an actual sort of enlightenment, is truly unbelievable. There is no other matching testimony today to the miserability and poverty of human minds. Observing the Nazis, - for example - again, - one might have been easily able to present the positive features of individuals - their casual family life and their care for their close ones, - upholding of values some would believe in, - and create an apparently lovely picture of a pleasing person agreeable to all expectations of the general public. In other words, - showing you how LHTB’s could live in such a nice manner as to allegedly deny older existing views considering the phenomenon as a perversion and a corruption of human life - is bullshit. Nothing less. In principal it means nothing. A homosexual and a paedophile are fundamentally equally wrong in their existing tendencies. No paedophile is going to tell you of how the actualization of his fault is the correct fulfilment of his life being lived fully following its true aim. Same with other similar phenomena. - The LHTB group seems to have been able to twist and turn humanity and its thought in a manner unrevealed (naturally) to most today. Personally, - I have never come across even a single reasonable or relevant argument. People just think x, - and the common view is that x is correct, - and further that one who does not (explicitly stupidly) accept x and continues to hold views held previously before the rise of the popularity of x - is of a dark or a retarded mind unmatching with the pseudo observed view of the alofted masses.

As I said the change in view (in contrast with that held not so long ago) does not seem to be supported by any
(rational) practical arguments, it is just that when one expresses existing [new] views it is as if understood - goes without saying, - that those opposing these are dark and far (or somewhat) behind - and the attitude is accepted by surrounding fellows who never seem to notice, in general, - that nothing has practically actually generally been said. - But this is not the main point. - The main point is the extent to which this view newly prevailing does severely and completely violate reality. It is as if someone has been able to convince humanity that when coming to very large numbers (whatever the scale) the rules of addition no longer hold. It is as if someone has been able to present things as if iron is not a metal but some sort of a crystal or plastic. - It is as if we were told children need not be kept away from any sort of corrupting influence (perhaps particularly residing on the Internet) just in the same way our chairs and tables, furniture, would not suffer corrupting influence under any similar conditions. As a matter of fact, we are practically able to tell and learn, - that humanity does severely suck. - The shallowness and superficiality of modern man is - as it seems, - nowhere as strikingly evident as here. I know many will respond these words do not present opposing arguments denying their stance. Human intuition and natural simple fundamental notions have told humanity for most of its existence what these issues are. I won’t argue further than that. It is not easy to explain to a 15 years old teenager what it means to be 50 years old. Some people are stupid. However polite one may try to be the fact is not affected. - Some have got the eye to see things others don’t. This is the world. You can’t explain high math to someone who does not know basic calculation and you can’t necessarily explain some things to those whose personality is shallow or unclean. This is not a matter of the intellect. - Thinking otherwise would be about the deepest mistake. - It is never possible to put everything into figures which would be “objectively” comprehensible to all. - The fact many can’t fathom does not mean things are untrue. Some might blame me of conceit, but they do not even consider the possibility that I may simply be right. - There is no gain in continuing in this line.

I do think the Nazis are the best example. - It is because at the time views we may be able to quite easily see correctly today were held true in a manner quite unequalled. - It would have been pointless to try and speak at the time. The elimination of the Jews could not have been thought of as an undesirable result. The supremacy of the state or nation was not only not questioned, - but such questioning would have been practically considered immoral by many. - Blockheadedness could not be more easily viewed. And now again similar conditions arise. - Though of course in a different stage, - otherwise it could not be unnoticeable. - Seeing things is a matter of a mental state, of a mental situation, - the shallower a person, the more dull or faded his mind is, - the rougher intellectually is his mind restricted to more obvious conclusions apparent on the surface, - the easier will he discard all that is said with typical confidence easily seen through. But the situation is quite hopeless. These words will only move those who are anyway somewhat nearby. Better than nothing. And together with other efforts elsewhere - with time, - some slight further progress may be achieved. This is all. “Even though two sparrows are sold for a penny, not one of them falls to the ground apart from the will of the Father”.
