TWO PHILOSOPHICAL ESSAYS
By Vadim Filatov – philosopher/nihilist (Russia)
THE MANIFESTO OF REVOLUTION OF EMPTINESS
[Azsacra Zarathustra as Creator of Shunyarevolution]
“The Emptiness — is the illusion, if it is not the Emptiness to Supremacy”
“Be thou erect, or be made erect!”
Sometimes, bright Lightnings of Overreflections about the Impossible, are flashing like Overnew Stars in an intellectual history of mankind.
The German philosopher of 19th century Philipp Mainländer considered that the indefinable Deity existed previous to the world. Before than has disappeared, «It has given rise to our Universe». And the Universe became means for achievement of a full non-existence. An ordinary man is afraid of absolute non-existence, but «the wise man is looking endlong and joyfully at the face of absolute destruction», because it be in character to the purpose of life of each separate man and the logician of wring of the Being as a whole.
About 16 centuries before this the Indian thinker Nagarjuna learned that there is an emptiness, which stays outside of a network of a dependent origin of causes and effects. According to his views, the Buddha preached two truths. The first — a truth of the worldly convenances, created by the Buddha from compassion to help to the people being on their way to the final truth. This final truth is the Emptiness. The great German philosopher of the XX-th century Ernst Jünger wrote, disserting about the gist of this final truth: «The politics of any colouring is antipathetic to me for a long time, and I no more march behind flag here. Also the earth revolution with political means is not to be mastered. They serve at most for the decoration of the volcano edge, if they even do not speed up the development». The human reason is powerless in knowledge of the world, which isn’t present, and the reason is incomprehensible for itself, because it is empty. There is the principle of causality, which stays in the basis of human knowledge of the world. This principle created illusion of comprehension of scientific laws, which help presumptuous scientists try to understand the past, to explain the present and to make the authentic forecast for the future. However: «Neither existing, nor the nonexistent thing, can’t have a cause. Such, if the thing doesn’t exist, the cause is absent too. And if the thing already exists, then for which this cause is necessary»? (Nagarjuna). It looks paradoxical, but only the emptiness of all reality makes possible this everything.
The antique philosophers have been convinced that the past and the future are only our phantoms, or (according to the doctrine of the Buddha) the consciousness of Spirit. The past isn’t real, because it comes to the present with each next instant. The future isn’t real, because it isn’t still present. «Therefore the very long life never differs from the very short one, — Marcus Aurelius asserted. — The present moment of life is equal for everybody, and consequently losses are equal also — and they are boil down only to the present moment. The longest-lived and the shortest-lived man, when they come to die, lose one and the same thing. Remember that man lives only in the present, in this fleeting instant; all the rest of his life is either past and gone, or not yet revealed».
But do we possess this reality? Is it possible? The opinions disperse about this. Thus, philosopher Cratylus has strengthened the doctrine of Heraclitus about general «flows» of things. He believed that the present is absolutely changeable (flows) and deprived of qualitative definiteness, so it is impossible to make any certain statement about it. In general, it is impossible to tell anything about any thing (or it is possible to speak anything you like). Anything can’t be designated, and it is impossible to take out judgements about it, whereas it owing to continuous fluidity has time for change infinite quantity of variants, while we pronounce our statement. As it is impossible to express things by the instrumentality of words, it is possible to indicate them only with gestures. Cratylus has tried to speak nothing, but only has moved one’s finger and has uttered undefined sounds. In such a way he reproached Heraclitus, who has told as if it is impossible to enter twice into the same river; he considered that it is impossible even once. He was a real philosopher! But if it is impossible to come into the river even once and is impossible to do anything at all, then are arising the question: What is this the present?
The Nonexistence, the Emptiness, the Nothing.
Nothing it is delusion, if it is not the Nothing to Power! Emptiness — is insufficiently empty. It is only one more illusion, if it is not Emptiness to Supremacy! Thus speaks Azsacra Zarathustra — the well-known in India the Russian thinker and creator of the Shunyarevolution. Even leading up our negation to the maximum (No), all of us inevitably slide down to the assertion (Yes). To be exact — it is the Will, which always is the Will to Rising. Nobody can deny in such a degree so that to eliminate all. Simple negation is not enough for this purpose. What is necessary for the aim to erect negation in the Absolute? Only going beyond of the maximum of the possibility — in Absolute Impossibility! Therefore, according to Azsacra Zarathustra’s philosophy: Emptiness should become Emptiness to Supremacy and overturn the world of illusions — the illusory world. For this purpose is necessary strengthening of power to degree «Over», passing into the Nothing to Power. All this is the chance for Will to Power for moving and outpacing any cogitative speeds of good and evil, destroying one illusion after another. The Shunyarevolution or Great Revolution of Emptiness becomes the new and unappealable world prophecy which is starting from Sacred India as the most ancient earth of Will to Power! Shunya or Shunya Om will become unprecedented force of energy, which will untwist a planet and the whole Universe in a direction, opposite to fear and infirmity. But we are obliged to be firm, strong and are dreadfully fearless, that to subordinate the world of the physical phenomena to our Will to Power! The most improbable impertinence of commands and captures is necessary. So any reasonable compromises and humane consensuses are inadmissible.
According to Azsacra Zarathustra’s doctrine, India — is the Sacred Country of Spirit, the most ancient and unknown civilization for an external world, capable for creating the Nietzschean Overman. In today’s conditions, when the world has definitively wallowed in spiritual degradation and when the society of consumer is aiming only on sale, even the simple pronunciation of a word «India» (Bharat Mata!) is a brave mantra of exclusive force, a sound of the Improbable Power! Om-India — is the Spiritual Heart of the world as Will to Power! Here and today the Great Spiritual Revolution of Emptiness — Shunyarevotion is developing before our eyes.
The symbol of future Revolution of Overman [Shunyaman of the Nothing to Power] and its distinctive Sign of definitive victory over «the world of forms» is conceived and made by Azsacra Zarathustra is the «Bible of Nothing, Bible of Emptiness». This legendary Book of books is already republished with the big success in India. This is the last, definitive prophecy, which it-self on the significance and depth of thoughts obviously surpasses all other books ever created in the history of mankind. Every wise book contains only the limited quantity of purports. But «Bible of Nothing, Bible of Emptiness» (owing to its Emptiness) embraces all infinity of purports, which perpetually indwell in the Kingdom of Eternally Struggling Spirit. And so it is major difference this book from all other texts. But, first of all, «Bible of Nothing, Bible of Emptiness» is Azsacra Zarathustra’s latent prophecy about the future destiny of mankind and the Universe, and also about each of us, about terms of a definitive victory of the Will to Power as Emptiness to Supremacy over the illusory world of cowardly human forms. Each is free to unravel this prophecy of Nothing to Power at own discretion. But no conclusive key will not open the secret of life and a non-existence for humankind, as long as the Will to Power like Nothing to Power and Emptiness to Supremacy won’t materialized.
Nothing to Power and Emptiness to Supremacy are objectively connected with the ideas, expressing all most spiritual and other-worldly aspirations of mankind, for which is characteristic the cult of physical power and infinite spiritual will to supremacy, and also the strongly pronounced creative tendency. So, Ernst Jünger has proclaimed: «We march towards a Magical Point Zero, which we will only Overcome, when we have other, Invisible Sources of Power at our disposal. And only one who possesses other Invisible Sources of Power would cross through this Zero Point… We put our hopes on a Revolt against the domination of a cosiness, for which purpose a weapon of destruction directed against the world of forms is required». Also resolutely Ernst Jünger rejects any concept of historical and political happiness: «Today only the person who no longer believes in a happy ending, only he who has consciously renounced it, is able to live. A happy century does not exist; but there are moments of happiness, and there is freedom in the moment»… for the Will to Power!
During Civil war in Spain desperately brave call was the slogan of the forces of the Spanish Phalanx: Long live Death! These courageous words have predicted the benefice of Nothing to Power and Emptiness to Supremacy. The future like the benefice of the Revolution of Emptiness.
Today the original Luxury of Will to Power can be reached only through incessant war of a body and Spirit in Overnoumenly of expanses of Creating Death.
Only Death — Upwards!
The most Ancient Cipher of Spirit — Inexplicable War for Impossible as the Will to Power — always thinks about Spirit as Spirit to Break.
Only one, who as lightning and ruthlessly are Seizing the Heavens, — strengthens Power of Earth and creates Soil for New Overmanly Secrets as inevitable Purports of Over.
The Overman is only a prologue, certain the oblational «Pre» to the Future Power of Over. It is necessary to cut off the former Force for the sake of achievement an Unprecedented Power — the Over Without man!
As the quantity the Will to Power approaches Zero — it approaches mysticism of attacker-Om. Because Emptiness to Supremacy is impossible act of Shunya.
Shunyarevolution is only going beyond of the maximum of the possibility — in Absolute Unpossibility! Emptiness should become Emptiness to Supremacy and Overturn the world of illusions — the illusory world.
Nothing to Power and Emptiness to Supremacy
(From Vadim Filatov’s book “The Warriors of Emptiness”)
“I do not teach a primitive replacement of one human rule by another, which could be even more human, but the most severe capture of absolute superiority through Nothing to Power and the statement of total prevalence through Emptiness to Supremacy. That means: one having ears… finds them already cut off” (Azsacra Zarathustra “Nothing to Power and Emptiness to Supremacy”)
If the nuclear bomb could philosophize, it would certainly claim that its philosophy is for anybody to embrace, but it is also a fact that its deadly wisdom just belongs to everybody. Thus the modern philosopher, poet-mystic Azsacra Zarathustra, the severe founder of the legendary and entirely empty “Bible of Nothing, Bible of Emptiness” says. This Book of Books (1000 pages) represents something which Mircea Eliade termed as “ierofania”, a manifestation of the sacred in ordinary things, a concentration of the power of Absolute Emptiness.
Mystical intuitions are often difficult to perceive only because stupid and indisputable ideas are quite understandable. This article is based on statements by Azsacra and represents some kind of prolegomena to his philosophy of Nothing to Power (“Das Nichts zur Macht”) and Emptiness to Supremacy (“Die Leere zur Herrschaft”). Azsacra says that his philosophy should “create an effect of a Definitive Absence of the weakness” which, in turn, will lead to the annihilation of all human-created systems of universality based upon the concept of the “same” Weight of Spirit (der Geist der Schwere).
At midday when a mystical dialogue occurring in absolute silence stopped, the Snake suddenly bit Zarathustra on his lips. Zarathustra, having stroked it, laughed and instantly overtook Death. The Eagle, who had brought honey in its beak to Zarathustra, found only his corpse. “I am the murderer of Zarathustra!” — the creeping Snake hissed. The Eagle seized the snake with its claws and tore it into pieces. Then the shouting Eagle soared up into the sky with its curly black thunderclouds, and was in a flash incinerated by the lightning, which had struck therein. But the lightning, which was the Overman, perished, too. The decline of Zarathustra ended with the last and the brightest flash of lightning. The great ring of returning has become isolated with a Death in Death, for only a most Cruel Destruction contains the secret of the main transition.
The Nietzschean Overman (Übermensch) has died and will not return any more, even if he found a new, still unknown, “Will to Power” (Der Wille zur Macht). Together with the Death of the Overman, the Devil, the secret of the Evil unsolved by anybody, disappears too. So it is impossible either to think of, or to design Absolute Evil today. There is only a “permanent person” in the world, who is doomed to come back eternally to himself realising his pitiful and cowardly “human, too human” state. But then at the moment of the triumph of the “ordinary person”, on that side of all “on-those-sides”, from the Death of the Overman, the Overnoumen (Übernoumen) is born. It is Nothing (Nichts) itself which just like every “top” violently aspires to the only one: to overtake Death!
“Two resuscitations, severe poisonings, necrosis, extensive burns, deep chipped and cutting wounds, open crises, ruptures of muscles on the stomach from blows, a strong blood poisoning, the loss of the right eye. But that’s not enough. Once, after being hit with a sledge hammer in my heart, I asked, what is it, a war or a butcher’s shop? The crash of a dragonfly on fire, I was answered” (Azsacra Zarathustra “Nothing and Nothing to Power”)
The pure hollow wisdom of Overnoumen is a kind of the most terrible wisdom. It proclaims four basic imperatives:
1) Not to be born; 2) Not to exist; 3) To be Nothing; 4) And hence to overtake Death as soon as possible.
The Overnoumen-Nothing destroys all conceivable and inconceivable limits of rationalism and irrationalism. It is not necessary to overestimate all values for the aim of showing Nothing to Power: to eliminate all values and all judges of these values, including Nothing is enough. The Overnoumen`s Will to Power (Der Wille zur Macht) unlike human will to live is only an infinite excess of all Rates of Death. It proclaims entirely another world — “The World as Will and Destruction”. To strengthen the power of all living means to strengthen the force of all dead. The birth of Nothing from the Spirit of Nietzsche means a birth of extreme violence of life from the Spirit of Nothing. Such is an empty fighting strategy of overcoming traditional “nihilism” by means of anti-philosophy of Great Midday. Such is the empty kingdom of Zarathustra confirmed as a projection of the Nietzschean Will to Power through Nothing to Power and Emptiness to Supremacy.
The thinking thinks and the Will demands a hidden and secret place in the field of Death. Only here is thinking without fear possible. It is necessary to remember that any second which is lived or thought contains fear. Therefore Dragons of Horror should devour dragons of fear. Every philosophical support just help to keep our fear, and therefore they must be brutally exterminated. Here comes a time to strike all philosophy with a finishing blow. This would be the final wound exacted by the sword of absence, piercing the neck of the won presence. It is necessary to cleanse it with the madness of Nietzsche … exposing the madness of all philosophy as total cowardice of thinking. There is nothing better for a man than to think as Nietzsche thought and to die as Mishima died. The medieval Japanese Samuray (Spirit which always was ready to Rupture!) would tell so: it is necessary to trust only to the voices of dead heroes. It is impossible to believe those who have escaped. Every original thinker is dangerous, only danger gives birth to truth. To think dangerously means to think with extreme Excesses of Death. Do not recede even if someone is going to shoot with a revolver at your head. Only in the Void Emptiness is quite Empty.
The mind is capable of becoming God, but your body will be cut into pieces all the same. Besides, the body should be ready for the most terrifying truth — the Absolute Rupture of Spirit! It is necessary to rise up to the Highest Tops of Death where the relentless Spirit breaks away from“everybody”, as being “too human”. Every kind of rupture and destruction is always more perfect than inspiration and enlightenment. The defeat would be too easy an outcome for men and consequently the ordinary person will not receive it. Everything will be much more terrible. He who is afraid to be lost as the dog, or to be crushed as the ant, will be killed in a manner that is hundred times worse — as a person. “If you can’t teach anybody to fall, you will transform him into a carrion!” — Thus spoke Azsacra Zarathustra.
Unlike men all animals always overtake their Death with redundancy and advantage. This is the greatest kind of happiness — to live far from people, among predatory eagles and venomous snakes. Azsacra says that the tiniest crushed worm becomes — in its Death — more powerful than God himself. For example, it is usually thought that the concepts of “hen” and “heroism” are contradictory to one another. Meanwhile, every hen is capable of the most extreme display of its will — “of the effect of the chopped head”. At the point of Death every hen is more perfect than any tiger. We can express this thought even more distinctly — the dying hen, whether we like it or not, exceeds even Mishima. This means that not a person, not even God, but only Death has the required courage to finish with this thinking up until the very end. We need to obtain courage to think like Death. This is a kind of an inexorably murderous attack against all. Each concrete and absolute law should be violated and killed with Nothing to Power and Emptiness to Supremacy. This requires a continuous and “voiding/elusive will” of the most sparkling Death. The highest experience of the released annihilation underlines scantiness and wretchedness of any human board of the force, in comparison with Spiritual Power of Rupture. We should operate outside of the purpose, outside of the justification and outside of the senses, showing only the luxury of the maximum Aggression of Spirit. We do not have to live as a kind of substantial “person”, but we rather have to battle incessantly with the most extreme surplus of the “Over”! The powerful and Absolute Nothing to Power is impossible to be stopped because it is quite useless. There are neither many, nor the only thing in this Nothing. Only magnificent Overnoumen in Luxurious Aggression can exert its advantage from Emptiness to Supremacy.
“I teach to exterminate pupils. The original school of struggle is a temple without believers. I am an extreme danger of Emptiness and all who go on in my traces, without having seen them, will disappear” (Azsacra Zarathustra “Nothing and Nothing to Power”)
The true Non-existence includes the destruction of funerals, funeral ceremonies and a funereal cowardice of thinking. A funeral is a cowardly and shameful flight of “all-human” from the terrifying courage of a corpse. There is Nothing in everything, which was brutally murdered and this Nothing will always revenge the world and (as Nothing to Power) will necessarily jump. This is Nothing to Power, as a simultaneous destruction of the top and the bottom, domination and anarchy, order and chaos. And Emptiness to Supremacy always follows Nothing to Power — as a final destruction of all the rest. To kill the world as a weakness means to overcome it not by force, but by absence, and to force a life to live only as a Non-existence. “Persons of no character quail before pure enthusiasm, they cannot suffer heat of its fire”, — thus Alfred de Vigny wrote. In this manner, exercises in active mastering of Death are always directed not against sacral principles of life, but only against ordinary ways of “dying”. Thus — these “exercises in Death”, violent “throws in destruction” prepare the Overman for the subsequent battles in Absolute Nothing. The Overman indefatigably practices so that his Pure Über/ “Over” could surpass the partial and small-biased “man”, the tower of the vision of universal Non-existence. And this way is always one: from the Overman (Übermensch) — through his destruction — to Over Without “man” (Überohnemensch); and then and further away — to Overnoumen (Übernoumen). What for? Even one atom of Death is more valuable than a million parts of rescue and preservation, the Corpse is more courageous than the Spirit. The Corpse is a great mastering of Spirit in its unexpected cowardice. It is impossible to live without the project of own Death. And not only without projects of Death itself, but also without plans concerning further actions with a Corpse. This means that it is necessary to continue to amaze and to terrify the world with the help of our “exterminated body” — even after our own annihilation. We suppose those who should participate this would not tremble. But this is possible to manage even without them.
To go over the bones of Confucius as a laughing lion.
Emptiness is more ruthless than fight and revolution.
While Tao softly squeezes its fist —
Nobody overtakes Nothing — without dying in any way.
Nothing is overtaken by Nobody — without reviving in any way.
(Azsacra Zarathustra “Overnoumen”)
“There is Nothing which never varies in anything, except Nothing to Power” — such is the obligatory law For Nobody. But is the illusion of the world being strengthened by the illusion of a person not quite the same, as “common people”? We hate the world not because it is “world”, but because it is — “cattle”, an assemblage of cowardly mongrels. Therefore if slaves do not doze, their Aristocrats do not sleep. If Emptiness is absent and does not order, then Emptiness to Supremacy orders.
We have to use the Secret Power of the most hidden forces, superiorities and prevalences, such as Non-being (bravery), Non-existence (boldness), Absence (courage), Emptiness (determination), Nothing (courage). The superior purpose of the “Buddha before Buddha” — is the fourth (truthful) turn of the wheel of the Dharma which will proclaim the arrival of Nothing to Power and Emptiness to Supremacy. There is nothing this is “existing”, except Nothing to Power. No thing is anything other than Nothing to Power passing in Emptiness to Supremacy. Nothing to Power forces each Zarathustra to become the warrior and leader of Emptiness to Supremacy. It does not allocate disappearing something with a life in Nothing, but, on the contrary, destroys even Nothing itself. If there is no other place to go to, this would mean the beginning of motion with the help of Nothing to Power. When there is nothing else to attack, this would become the beginning of the application of Emptiness to Supremacy. “Only owing to the fact that I do not exist, I am able to exterminate and to capture. Any form is only a trace of my Empty Violence inside me” — so the Emptiness which initially is Emptiness to Supremacy says.
Only those that live with a constant deadly threat could feel extremely and painfully the intolerable decline of Emptiness, its millennial “Buddhist decadence”. There are only two kinds of war: when Strong men battle with other Strong men for the Superiority in Death, or when weak men struggle against other weak ones for an “illusion of survival” and following the subsequent rotting in cowardice. There is a fundamental question: whether Emptiness is eager to Kill? The answer is like this: Emptiness aspires to Kill even more than fullness wants the same!
This is the most devastating blow: Emptiness to Supremacy always Kills, but does not leave either corpses, or even their absence. Nothing to Power always Destroys, but does not leave either ruins, or even absence of them. What can we love eternally, being Nothing to Power ourselves? Only Emptiness to Supremacy …
When the Black Sun of Nothing begins to shine next to the White Sun of Emptiness — the laughing lion Om will jump into the Great Midday. Der grosse Mittag!
