Transylvanian Morning.

I have been unable to follow most of the last week’s comments, and probably won’t catch up. But FWIW, I enjoyed the gearhead debates at Thorfinnsson’s Take on Tesla, the Dmitry vs. Polish Perspective debate on who was or was not in Israel, and reiner Tor’s instructions on cold showers.

Now that I am in Bucharest and have a good, reliable Internet connection, I will put up another Kholmogorov translation tomorrow. Hopefully this will suffice until regular poasting can resume on June 12.


Featured News

bronze-age-mindset* Long awaited BAPbook is out!: Bronze Age Mindset is now a bestseller in Ancient Greek history.

Some say that this book, found in a safebox in the port area of Kowloon, was dictated, because Bronze Age Pervert refuses to learn what he calls “the low and plebeian art of writing.” It isn’t known how this book was transcribed. The contents are pure dynamite. He explains that you live in ant farm. That you are observed by the lords of lies, ritually probed. Ancient man had something you have lost: confidence in his instincts and strength, knowledge in his blood. BAP shows how the Bronze Age mindset can set you free from this Iron Prison and help you embark on the path of power. He talks about life, biology, hormones. He gives many examples from history, both ancient and modern. He shows the secrets of the detrimental robots, how they hide and fabricate. He helps you escape gynocracy and ascend to fresh mountain air.

* Julien Dehlez: Reflections on the London Conference on Intelligence (see also James Thompson’s take)

* Ron Unz: American Pravda: When Stalin Almost Conquered Europe.

Suffice to say I disagree with Rezun’s theory, and can also commend the comments by Thorfinnsson, Ivan K., and most of the ones by Arioch. Perhaps I will do a post on this eventually (Ron has urged me to in the past), but it would mostly just be a restatement of the “WHO PLANNED TO ATTACK WHOM, AND HOW?” chapter of Absolute War by Chris Bellamy.



* Moon of Alabama: The Babchenko Hoax Was Part Of A Corporate Raid. I had speculated this might be the case a day earlier, and I think MoA has basically proven this.

* Putin mumbled some things on the national Q&A. I didn’t even notice it was on until after the fact.

* The Ukraine is trying to appropriate Igor Sikorsky for its own. He actually identified as Russian, and indeed was a monarchist and a nationalist.

* Like meets like:




* Audacious Epigone

* Fred Reed takes exception to a comment I made on one of his posts. My reply here.


Science & Culture

* Heiner Rindermann, David Becker (2018) – FLynn-effect and economic growth: Do national increases in intelligence lead to increases in GDP?

• National historical changes in IQ were related to changes in GDP per capita.
• IQ growth is positively correlated to economic growth.
• The correlations are the largest for a 5 to 15 years time lag (r = .25 to .77).
• Preceding intelligence increases lead to later production and income increases.
• Control for wealth show catch-up and robust cognitive effects.

* Emil Kirkegaard: Nobel prize winners are very unlikely to be religious


* Portuguese regional politics & culture.


Powerful Takes

* [non-ironic] This comment by Kratos the Gluemaker is interesting, and appreciated. Also this one by ImmortalRationalist on why primitivism is a dead end.

About Anatoly Karlin

I am a blogger, thinker, and businessman in the SF Bay Area. I’m originally from Russia, spent many years in Britain, and studied at U.C. Berkeley.

One of my tenets is that ideologies tend to suck. As such, I hesitate about attaching labels to myself. That said, if it’s really necessary, I suppose “liberal-conservative neoreactionary” would be close enough.

Though I consider myself part of the Orthodox Church, my philosophy and spiritual views are more influenced by digital physics, Gnosticism, and Russian cosmism than anything specifically Judeo-Christian.
