[Read] Revolt Against the Modern World *Full_PDF* #epub By Julius Evola

EPUB By — Julius Evola

Do you like this book?
Book Deskripsi:
In what many consider to be his masterwork, Evola contrasts the characteristics of the modern world with those of traditional societies, from politics and institutions to views on life and death.”No idea is as absurd as the idea of progress, which together with its corollary notion of the superiority of modern civilization, has created its own “positive” alibis by falsifying history, by insinuating harmful myths in people’s minds, and by proclaiming itself sovereign at the crossroads of the plebeian ideology from which it originated. In order to understand both the spirit of Tradition and its antithesis, modern civilization, it is necessary to begin with the fundamental doctrine of the two natures. According to this doctrine there is a physical order of things and a metaphysical one; there is a mortal nature and an immortal one; there is the superior realm of “being” and the inferior realm of “becoming.” Generally speaking, there is a visible and tangible dimension and, prior to and

Stan Lee, Borges and I: The Philosophy Behind Excelsior

The first-person of oneself is more important than the third-person of oneself; how the first-person of one’s self establishes his or her life in the way he or she does leads to the way the third-person of that human being is remembered.

Many people wonder if Stan Lee would have ever personally thought his work would influence the lives of so many people throughout the world as it did.

Lee, the face of Marvel Comics, would go on to spend his life, essentially and respectfully, telling stories to mass audiences of people just trying to find the hero in themselves. Many of Lee’s heroes also shared that same dilemma. However, like some of Lee’s characters, the first-person of oneself is similar to a secret identity no one else can see.

The way that Stan Lee, and many other deceased people, are seen is by a sort of third-person point of view. The Stan Lee that fans mourned following his death can be seen as a sort of character portrayal interpreted by the public. To those passionate fans, they will remember Lee in numerous ways; the man with countless cameo appearances in Marvel films, a war veteran, a man who put heroes and role models into one’s life when they may not have had any and someone who was always excited, happy and grateful for those who loved his work as much as he did.

While this is how the general public may remember Stan Lee, it may not be the true self of Stan Lee. Now that he has passed on, the true Stan Lee is gone. The only ones left on Earth who would have the closest interpretation of the first-person of Marvel’s front-man would be members of Stan’s family and some of his closest friends.

Spring into healthy habits with help from Google Home

Spring is (finally) here. Not only am I using the warmer weather and longer days as a reason to clean out my closet, but I'm also taking the opportunity to clean up my routine and stick to my wellness goals. I'd like to read one book per week, cook more healthy recipes for my family and get at least seven hours of sleep per night… with a full time job and two toddlers. Life is a lot to manage, so I use my Google Home products to keep track of everything I want to accomplish.

Here are a few ways that your Google Assistant on Google Home devices can help with your wellness goals and put some spring in your step:

Get more sleep

Starting today, our Gentle Sleep & Wake feature lets you use any Google Home device to set a routine that gradually turns your Philips Hue smart lights on (wake) or off (sleep) over the course of 30 minutes, to mimic the sunrise or help you prepare for bed. This gradual change of light helps improve the quality of your sleep. Just say, “Hey Google,” then:

“Turn on Gentle Wake up" to have your daily morning alarms pair with gradual brightening. Make sure to enable Gentle Wake Up on the same Google Home device you’ll  set your alarms on."Wake up my lights." You can also say, “Hey Google, wake up my lights in the bedroom at 6:30 a.m.” This will start to gradually brighten your Philips Hue lights at the time that you set and can be set up to 24 hours in advance. 
"Sleep my lights." You can also say, “Hey Google, sleep the lights in the living room.” This will gradually start to dim your Philips Hue lights and can be programmed up to 24 hours in advance. 

The Gentle Sleep & Wake feature is available in the U.S., U.K., Canada, Australia, Singapore and India in English only. For other ways to wind down at the end of the day, you can also tune out noises from street traffic or construction next door by saying, “Hey Google, play white noise.”

Put your mind to bed

With Headspace on Google Home, you can try out a short meditation or a sleep exercise. Just say, "Hey Google, tell Headspace I'm ready for bed.” You can also say, “Hey Google, I want to meditate” to get recommendations like healing sounds, sleep sounds and more.

A Wake For Hellblazer

Jamie Delano, Brian Azzarello, Mike Carey and Peter Milligan pay tribute to “blue-collar warlock” John Constantine.

“It’s better for the long-term health of the book to re-invent it periodically,” said comics writer Warren Ellis in 1999, as he took over the reigns of DC Comics’ flagship horror title Hellblazer. Fast-forward fourteen years, and his words had a particular resonance, since Hellblazer was about to undergo the most radical and controversial shake-up in its history. In fact, while its central character, the cynical, manipulative, trench-coated, chain-smoking magician John Constantine would remain part of the DC Universe, Hellblazer itself was ending. Issue #300 marked the climax of the comic’s extraordinary 25-year run. Constantine lived on (for a time) but Hellblazer, sadly, was no more.

Every little thing he does is magic. Swamp Thing #37 (1985)

John Constantine (arguably) first appeared in issue #37 of Alan Moore’s famous Swamp Thing run in 1985, as a supporting character. His unremarkable first words were, “He’s coming back, Judith.” Later in the same issue though, comes a speech bubble that reads now like a mission statement: “If you want answers, you’ll have to keep up with me. Maybe I’ll give you the answers. Maybe I won’t.” He introduces himself to Swamp Thing’s squeeze Abby as “a nasty piece of work.”

Moore claims that the character arose from a request from Swamp Thing artists Stephen Bissette and John Totleben to write them a Sting-like character to draw (maybe they were big Police fans). “How could I fit Sting into Swamp Thing?” Moore mused in 1993. “I have an idea that most of the mystics in comics are generally older people, very austere, very proper in a lot of ways. They are not at all functional on the street. It struck me that it might be interesting for once to do an almost blue-collar warlock: somebody who was streetwise. Constantine started to grow out of that.”

His initial story arc saw him manipulating the Swamp Thing — he told the creature to think of him as his manager — in a crusade against the Brujeria: an insidious black magic chaos cult who had quietly taken over the world and were now embarking on the destruction of Heaven. It was Swamp Thing’s title, but the scene-stealing Constantine was immediately the story’s engine. “It was a great moment,” remembers Carey. “I was like, wow, who’s this guy? I was completely sold on Constantine immediately, and when they gave him his own title I was right in there.”

Hellblazer #1 (1988), cover by Dave McKean. “Suggested for mature readers”.

He grew to the extent that, in 1988, he was given his own series (initially to be called Hellraiser until a certain Clive Barker film forced a re-think). With Moore disinclined to write it himself, the job fell to a fellow resident of Northampton, England: Jamie Delano.

Bandas de historieta

Los cómics y la música han interactuado en múltiples oportunidades. A veces las bandas crean música inspirada en arcos narrativos de las historietas, como la canción I Am The Law, basada en Judge Dredd, y Holy Wars… The Punishment Due, inspirada en el Punisher. En años recientes, grupos como Panic! At The Disco han producido proyectos que integran imaginería exagerada y oscura basada en cómics. Otras veces sucede al revés, como cuando Marvel usó Iron Man, de Black Sabbath, para promocionar a su personaje homónimo.

Una de las bandas que más se han integrado con las historietas es My Chemical Romance. Su líder, Gerald Way, creó un cómic (The Umbrella Academy) y ha producido álbumes que integran un crossovers con cómics. En el video promocional de su álbum Danger Days: The True Lives of the Fabulous Killjoys (2011) la banda aparece vistiendo atuendos llamativos y batallando monstruos. Además, cuenta con una breve aparición del famoso escritor de cómics Grant Morrison. En 2013 se publicó Killjoys, un cómic que ahonda en los temas explorados por el material antes mencionado.

Una muestra de interacción profunda entre cómics y música es Gorillaz, un proyecto entre el cantante Damon Albarn y Jamie Hewlett, creador del cómic Tank Girl. Juntos crearon una banda virtual, compuesta por personajes dibujados por Hewlett y vocalizados, en su mayoría, por Albarn. Los personajes cuentan con narrativas complejas, presentadas al público a través de sus canciones, sus videos musicales animados y su página de internet. Después de dos décadas, varios discos y giras, el proyecto no se mira que vaya a acabar.

Algo muy frecuente es que bandas de carne y hueso aparezcan en cómics, entre estas destacan Danzig, GWAR, Stone Sour, Slayer, Iron Maiden y Alice Cooper. Pero el grupo de rock KISS ha sido el más constante de todos, protagonizando no menos de una docena de proyectos a lo largo de sus casi 50 años de existencia. No es de extrañar, pues varias cualidades de la banda los hacen perfectos para aparecer en cómics: sus particulares maquillajes estilo kabuki, los llamativos trajes que usan en escena y las excéntricas personalidades que para sí mismos han creado.

Entre las casas editoriales que han producido cómics protagonizados por KISS se encuentran Marvel Comics, Image Comics, Dark Horse Comics, Platinum Studios, IDW Publishing y hasta Archie Comics. El constante interés de las firmas divierte muchísimo a Gene Simmons, líder de la agrupación, quien comenta que, a excepción suya, todos los integrantes de KISS odian las historietas.

How Has Comic Book Culture Evolved Over the Years?

The precursor to Marvel Comics was born all the way back in 1939 under the magazine publisher Martin Goodman, who created Timely Comics. It’s hard to believe, but that was already eighty years ago. Comic books have been a huge part of nerd culture for decades, but things have evolved quite a lot over the years.

The inclusion of more diverse characters is one of the best changes.

With movies like Wonder Woman, Black Panther, Captain Marvel, and Spider-Man: Into the Spider-verse being significant box office hits and garnering more support among fans, it’s clear that diversity in comics is reaching the place where it should have been a long time ago.

While we can look back and ask why the push for diversity and inclusion didn’t make it into the mainstream sooner, the past is the past. We should all be happy to see more protagonists with different backgrounds, genders, and orientations coming up in comics and their subsequent movies.

The way comics are marketed is completely different now.

Comics are now marketed via social media and in mainstream media outlets. It’s totally common to see an algorithmically served ad about the latest DC comics if you frequently interact with comic book culture on Instagram or other social platforms. By the same token, it’s totally normal to see a commercial on TV about the latest Marvel movie. It’s so normal, we don’t think anything of it now.

It wasn’t always like that.

With the Roav Bolt, use your Google Assistant safely when driving

I spend so much time on the road every day, whether I’m hustling to the office or picking up the kids at school. While I’m driving, it can be very tempting to pull out my phone to check text messages, make phone calls or fumble around to find my favorite podcast. 

One way to safely stay connected and use your phone hands-free while on the road is by using the Roav Bolt, an affordable aftermarket device by Anker Innovations. The Roav Bolt is built to work with Android devices, and brings the Google Assistant to almost any car. Just say, “Hey Google,” when you’re in the car or tap the button on Roav Bolt to find the nearest coffee shop, play your favorite song or podcast, navigate home, read texts, make calls, set reminders and check your schedule for the day. 

Roav Bolt plugs into your car’s charging socket, connecting to your phone’s Bluetooth and then to your car’s stereo. The far-field built-in mics on the Roav Bolt ensure that your Assistant hears you clearly, whether your phone is locked or stashed away or if you’re blasting music.

Here’s a closer look at what you can do with the Assistant using Roav Bolt, starting with “Hey Google”: 

Navigation

Ask the Google Assistant to help you get to your destination and find the things you need as you’re driving, such as current traffic along your route, nearby gas stations, or restaurants and businesses.
