Life is not as simple as any philosopher will tell you. It is not as simple as what I, a foolish sod, would tell you either. It is why I insist upon the idea of poesis, so that one may understand the poetry of their own lives as being distinctly and definitively capable of producing meaningfulness merely through carrying out your life itself in a poetic manner.
If I have not forgotten anything unintentionally, these are the principal opinions concerning the soul. I have omitted Democritus, a very great man indeed, but one who deduces the soul from the fortuitous concourse of small, light, and round substances; for, if you believe men of his school, there is nothing which a crowd of […]
If you have arrived here it is likely because you are already somebody who is conscious, afraid, and internally quite shattered. It is a common condition in these times; there is hardly a rock in the developed world which cannot be turned to find angst. The source of it can never be agreed upon, however, […]

In my practice of Latin I have been reading a lot of unedited and generally unabridged (with the exception of the Perochia) Livy lately, which has both enriched my knowledge of history but has also given me what I feel is a unique insight into both the operations of the Roman state as well as […]
While I have spoken of poesis quite extensively in my works, I have yet to create a fully systematic and well-delineated definition for this concept which has become key to Sodean Theology and Theurgical practices. I even have an article describing how one should use poesis to drive their life towards heaven, but what this […]
Sources for this article include mostly Nepos as well as some Livy and Eutropius. These were all read in the original Latin. If you are familiar with my very early works, you will know my position on the nature of the supposedly extinct Punic and Canaanite religions (which I have found some evidence still exist […]
As this continuously ascending and descending world finds itself in a condition of extreme self-reflection, the impulse will always be, and has always been, to look towards history for answers. Whether these answers are to tell us what to do — that is, imperative answers — or are instead to tell us where within the […]
From whence we came and unto where we goA silent and soft, rocky river shall flowI wish for good and good people wish this for allBut I would have been rude to reject the call If I falter and if I fall flat on my ode-racked and silly old faceThen I shall be muddy ridden, […]
The question of sin is a question which is quite comically gargantuan, but for the sake of necessarily short-breathed explanations of Sodean theology, I’m going to state from the start that this by no means comprehensive and is certainly not a stone-walled defense of Sodean theology with regards to sin. The first question when discussing […]
On the question of sin, such a conversation is always to be dragged either towards sex or towards luxury. These are things which most people experience or consider on a somewhat frequent basis and thus often feel complicit in the supposed sins that one faith or another may place upon the head of one who […]
