Welcome to /roulette/!

Welcome to /roulette/, leftypol's roulette board! This board will be used for testing out new board ideas. The guidelines are as follows:
- The countdown will begin as soon as the board is added to the announcement bar and will last for one month.
- After a month, if the board has garnered enough posts on that month's topic, it will be made into a new board (barring any legitimate objections by the moderation team) and the threads will be moved there. Off-topic and spam posts will not count. Board ideas that do not meet this requirement will be shelved, with the possibility of being revisited later.
- New board ideas can be suggested in the /meta/ thread for /roulette/.

This month's board topic is: /spoox/ - Paranormal, horror and the occult.
­Last month's board topic /AK-47/ was made into its own board >>>/AKM/.

Rules:
- /spoox/ is a board for discussing the paranormal, horror and occult, as well as its philosophy and influence of leftist ideologies.
- This is not the place to dump or spam right wing facebook-tier conspiracy theories or /pol/ schizo ramblings, those may be subject to deletion.
- General rules of the site apply, see : https://leftypol.org/rules.html
– This includes spoilering images reasonably considered to be disturbing

It never happened

NASA 2024 moon landing jeopardized because space suits aren't ready
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=pU-i4r8MjsI

If they did it more times in the past, why are they developing again the necessary technologies?
They still use Soyuz rockets to bring spacemen on the ISS, but they allegedly had the technology to bring them to the moon.

>B-but the people who had the know-how died so they need to do the work all over again

Yeah, sure.
>B-but they didn't it again because there is no incentive to do it anymore
There is no economic incentive in space exploration at all, that's why SpaceX is in deep red and basically only takes public funding. Also owning a base on the moon is a big strategic advantage.

Hyperborea general

We're all riding the Kali Yuga together. ITT worship Hyperborea, denounce the modern world, discuss magick, aliens, theosophy and Atlantis. Only for people of Indo-Uralic and Indo-Aryan origin, no semites and reptilians allowed. Praise Evola (pbuh) and Guenon (pbuh). Praise the sun. This is a shitpost

The uplifting of Dolphins and the Space Comrades

I want to say that we should uplift dolphins? Why not because they are already pretty smart and look how swol they can get man, you have no idea. We as Posadists should do this as having space comrades seeing with have swolephins will only make them like us more.

KINO REDPILL THREAD

Only high quality redpills in this thread. Esoteric rabbit holes and life changing information only.

I'll start; some of this stuff I'm including in a book I'm almost done with.

1

Look into Bill Gaede. Probably one of the most important thinkers alive today, despite looking like a goofy crank.

https://youtu.be/Yhm9w4YTTx0

2

Look into Joseph Davidovits. He essentially points out that ancient megalithic structures are made with geopolymers aka a kind of artificial stone.

The Christian religion is so strange

On the surface Christianity would appear like the most average Abrahamic no ordinary religion like any other on this planet and most Christian’s treat it that way yet when one looks even moderately deeper into the ideas behind it it’s reall really un ordinary especially when compared to other religions.

Angels do not look anything like what middle age era art and other angels depicted in other religions look like but rather hyper abstract half synthetic half mechanical figures twisting in ways that defy modern information on physics and geometry, and whatever god in this religion is presented as isn’t thought of as some absolute figure of love goodness or any sense of idea but rather as a tyrannical monster that openly support mass killings to fit whatever is defined as holy based off multiple authors.

There isn’t actually a clear idea or message presented in any of the texts removed from the King James Version of the bible and the book of Enoch somehow predicted Jesus and the fall of Rome centuries before the event took place, Ecclesiastes is one of the most existential pieces of literature ever written as it reveals the meaningless of human existence and the only relief man sees is a rush of dopamine after what feels like endless suffering an idea that’s been confirmed countless times especially after the invention of steam engines on social life.

Delve even deeper into this weird ass religion and there’s evidence that this religion predates the rise of Judaism with stone art from texts in really archaic forms languages found in MENA east Africa and Southern Europe in the form of sea scrolls discussing ideas about god knows what.

This religion has me interested not in being religious myself but understanding why it’s even as weird as it is in its state, and makes me wonder how old it actually is and how much of what man understands about this odd religion is being blocked off from earlier evidence lost to nature.

Dreams and psychonauts

Let's talk about dreams interpretations and psychonaut experiences.

i used to not believe in that or at least that's what i said
in my religion my family is usually gifted the psychic ability
my mother can channel spirits tho i haven't heard about her experiences
i personally can predict the future with dreams
i often dream about stuff that will happen and it can be scary because it can be kinda cryptic and symbolic at times
but some other times can be explicit and accurate
just a year ago i predicted my cat's death
i also believe he was trying to say goodbye in the same dream.
i hadn't seen him in at least 2 weeks since he lived with my mother at the time
but the moment i had that dream, it seems around the same time he had know he was gonna die.
which is why the next day he also wanted to say goodbye to the rest of my family.
the next day he was taken to a veterinary for surgery because apparently he was hurt.
but halfway through the surgery he died.

on a side note i also predicted every house i ever lived in becoming a broken mess in the middle of the gentrification process as i started transitioning.

Magic is the control panel of ideology

On The Slenderman Mysteries by Nick Redfern he talks about how the hermetic order of the golden dawn had this ritual where they worshipped a god, commonly from acient myths like the greeks of egyptians and when they felt they had the god's blessing they will get rid of everything they had for that god or to worship that god and will start a new with another god.
After Alister crowley's death the golden dawn introduced characters form the cthulu myths to this ritual, it sounds incredibly retarded but if the gods of acient cultures are not real then how is worshipping fictional copyrighted characters any different?
Alan Moore, the comic book writer has performed this ritual with characters of his own creaton and other comic book characters, he has vivid stories of stumbling upon them in real life.
Radfern makes the argument that society performed this ritual and that by believing tht Slenderman is a real mythological creature and not a meme we willed it into existence and so historical coincidences were reread as slenderman's history.

How is this related to Zizek's conception of ideology? We do not choose our ideologies, you can simply say 'I do not have any ideology" That is an ideology by itself. having the blassing of a god even if you know it doesn't exist is ideology in function, and magic is basically a symbolic act where you tell yourself that "you believe that you believe" and rewrite the ideological narrative that exists within you.

UFOs, The Space Comrades, and the Great Cosmic Horrors

This thread is dedicated in talking about the UFOs, how Area 51 has alien technology that was stolen from crashed UFOs, and the Space Comrades as we know them.

I will begin with my beliefs on the subject, first the Space Comrades are indeed real. Why do I think this, because one fuck the feremi Paradox, instead we have been looking for our Comrades in the wrong ways. If an Advance Civilization existed it most likely either too far away make reasonable contact. Second, using radio as a means of finding aliens is outdated, if you are so advanced you would not be still sending out radio waves through out the galaxy. Thirdly they have visited us in the distant past way before modern humans were a thing and just went on their ways. Final point is that if they are indeed out there they are actively studying us like the Grey Aliens do due to an treaty by Eisenhower to allow them study humans for exchange for weapons.

Now to get to the point of the Cosmic Horrors, space is so strange. That we don't even understand the universe as we like it and thus, because of this extreme unknown it causes one's mind to break. As there are the Great Old Ones out there slumbering Alien Civilizations waiting for their time to return to the forefront. These are the beings that we can't make sense. As we try to rationalize these beings, it only sends us into madness.

Psychic Interaction

Is absolutely real. Thoughts can be transmitted without any interaction involving the traditional 5 senses. What exactly is the mechanism behind this phenomenon I have no absolute belief in, but my belief in the phenomenon is 100% real based on my own experimentation.

what aliens are really like

What are aliens actually like?
IMO Lovecraft is probably the most plausible take. Aliens are from another environment and evolved for different conditions. There are probably similar forces shaping their evolution, but they followed a very different path. Additionally any that could travel to meet us probably have technology we don't understand. This would mean that the aliens are going to be very alien to us and probably confusing and disorienting at a fundamental level. Maybe it wouldn't drive us insane, but we probably would have trouble making sense of them. Even fairly innocuous stuff here on earth where we evolved manages to confuse our monkey brains.

The End Times

>Then I saw when the Lamb broke one of the seven seals, and I heard one of the four living creatures saying as with a voice of thunder, "Come." I looked, and behold, a white horse, and he who sat on it had a bow; and a crown was given to him, and he went out conquering and to conquer.
>Revelation 6:1–2
Since the First Horseman of the Apocalypse is often times associated with pestilence and disease, and "corona" means "crown," is the coronavirus pandemic the beginning of the end times? Feel free to share any theories from any religion or belief system or just call me an idiot if you feel inclined to do so.

golem and artificial life thread

any anons here familiar with the kabbalah?

one thing i am personally curious about is the golem myth as it has clear connections to modern attempts at artificial life. any anons believe they know the full meaning of the golem ritual? as far as i know, the 22 letters each represent a metaphysical principle. the 231 gates are then meant to represent every potential principle. there is a connection here with the adam kadmon mentioned (e.g. here: https://www.alchemywebsite.com/golem.html) though i am not knowledgable enough to confirm. if this was it's meaning, i am unsure what is either psychological (i.e. what is claimed how that the mind ought to be structured) or material (i.e. what is being claimed about how matter ought to be structured) significance.

(1) that we should look at states of matter which can simultaneously embody multiple possibilia (perhaps by superposition) seems like a possible interpretation, but doesn't quite entail embodiment of all principles simultaneously. (2) we could instead interpret this correspondence as the soul somehow conferring "general intelligence", i.e. the capacity to in principle solve any task computationally tractable by machines physically realized by apparatuses of a mass comparable to or less than that of the apparatus for our general intelligence. i find this interpretation facile, and it does not seem to permit the possibility that the golem is unable to speak. (3) these principles in particular are always at play at every moment of mental life. this is a claim most unparsimonious

another point: i can't help but feel that some of these metaphysical principles are obscure. in particular, why must each of these principles embodied by the letters be necessary? furthermore, how exactly do these principles function? if we associate a letter with a classical element (say fire), i still need to know what "fire" actually means. where do we see "fire" in an organism? why is this principle so metaphysically necessary? what does this principle do for the organism? furthermore, the application of this principle should be done in a uniform way. the "fire" in an organism should also be easily applicable to being the "fire" of a machine with literal difficulty. one such interpretation of "fire" in this instance could be "energy transformation". it is presumably necessary in order for us to have physical configurations characterized by lower local entropy while the 2nd law of thermodynamics still holding. if i have a problem with this interpretation, it is that it is too "physical" if that makes any sense. at any rate, all 22 letters ought to be interpreted in such a matter, otherwise it would just be symbolic navel gazing

===

the other side of things is with the homunculus, which i am not at all familiar with. if anyone here has knowledge about it, please share!
