In My last essay, I dissected and comprehensively detailed some of the primary definitional and functional Forbidden Truths regarding art and artistic expression, positioning both as positive, personally empowering, and an effective way to personally manifest, communicate and articulate Truth. I strongly urge all seekers of Truth to read and/or reread that essay, before continuing on to this one, which offers the tragic and perverse flip side, so that both aspects of Forbidden Truth regarding this issue can be equally understood.
The human being is a pathological hater and destroyer of Truth, and in the process, Himself. In My last essay I dissected the positive potential of art and artistic expression, how the creation of art can and should be used to express and to reflect personal and universal Truths, to enhance and strenghten the universe of Self, and how art should be analyzed and understood by outside observers, as the creative expression of either personal True Reality or actual, factual Truth, with an affirmative mandate embraced by the observer, to decipher and to extract whatever Truths are being revealed.
But of course none of this actually occurs, among you humans. Art and artistic expression have been hijacked by society and government, redefined and repurposed to amuse, entertain, distract, and deceive. Both the personal creation and the external appreciation of art is marketed by society as an escape from reality and Truth, instead of a way to express and understand and embrace reality and Truth. Art has become a celebration of artificiality, the fetishistic embrace of a pose, a pretense, abstraction of thought, instead of enhancement of thought, and this perverse and pathetic betrayal of creative potential is equally devastating to both the creator of art, and to the patron of art.
The most bluntly honest expressions of artistic creativity, such as acts of Self-inspired and Self-chosen murder, are completely denied the label of art. Societally chosen “art critics” are deployed in order to instruct the unwashed masses on the meaning of artistic pieces, and to apply value judgments to various artistic creations, rooted within perverse illusions of morality. Beauty in art is fetishized, while ugliness, revealing the True nature of the human condition, is marginalized and subjected to classist and moral censorship. The poor and the uneducated are fed a steady and unrelenting diet of vulgarity for the purpose of amusing and distracting them, while any Forbidden Truths revealed within these artistic creations are cloaked and concealed from open discussion or analysis.
Humans who possess artistic ability and talent are relentlessly courted, via bribery, coercion, and other toxic lures, to use their skills to help society and government maintain and strengthen the social trance of universal illusion. Here we see the toxic universe of “fiction”, fictional books, movies, theatrical shows, political debates, sporting matches, “reality” shows, all designed and intended to channel artistic creation into an enormous pit of utter meaninglessness, the profound and the True reduced to triviality, meaninglessness, a laugh track, a cartoonish caricature of reality, which extinguishes all capacity for Truth realization.
Fiction is wrong. Fiction should not exist within the human understanding of his universe. As factual reality, fiction does not exist, as it is the invalid, cloaked expression of either True Reality or Truth itself. Art and fiction are not synonymous. Only because human society has successfully transformed artistic creation into an artificial pose, and the inferior Unwashed Masses of humans demand that the art they expose their minds to is presented to them as fiction, do we have a vast universe of art, in many different mediums, both presented by artists and interpreted by observers, as fiction.
The failed artist is the artist who is trying to deliver a message to others in his chosen creations. It matters little what the intended message is, the simple fact of being focused on delivering an external message, compromises the internal Self-dialogue that the Superior creation of art requires. The failed artist is the artist who tries to find beauty in a universe of profound ugliness. The failed artist is the artist who wants to inspire hope in others, when there is no sane reason to be hopeful. The failed artist does not know Truth, so how can he reveal or express Truth, to either Himself or to others, in his artistic creations??
The failed artist serves the hive mind, while pretending to challenge it, deceiving Self and his “fans”, those who are similarly broken of mind and seek escape from reality and Truth. All famous artists are failed artists. Society will not allow the artist who courageously stands up for Truth, to attain fame. He is relegated to either the rogue’s gallery of imposed infamy, or the scrap heap of ostracized anonymity.
There are many examples and illustrations I can provide, of how the failed artist presents himself and his work. I can do movies or tv shows or romance novels or pop art paintings, the list is endless. But in the interests of time and space, I will stick to classic literature. In these enigmatic examples, I lay bare the True horror of failed artistic expression, and I want it to be understood that while placing equal blame and guilt on both the artistic creator and his/her audience, primary guilt and blame goes to humanity as a whole, and the universal destruction of all Truth as mandated by society and government.
Let us begin. In 1818, a woman named Mary Shelley wrote a book titled “Frankenstein; or, The Modern Prometheus.”. It was written as a fictional novel. In case the plotline is not familiar to you, you can acquaint yourself here:
This novel reveals profoundly important Forbidden Truth regarding the human condition, how we are all creations of all that has been imposed and inflicted upon us, how we are all victims of society, how we are all born with potential that is destroyed via the direct treatment, the injustice and the brutality that we are subjected to.
But none of these Forbidden Truths are realized by humanity. The book was created as an artistic work of fiction, and it is analyzed by humanity as such. It is impossible to know whether Mary Shelley as a human being, recognized the Forbidden Truths she was revealing in her fictional text. The odds are a million to one that she did not. But as functional reality, this question is not important. What is important is that she presented profound Truth as fiction, thus destroying Truth and marking herself a failed artist.
Imagine how radically altered the human experience of existence might be, if Mary Shelley had presented the Truths she revealed in this novel, simply as factual Truths, within a book of philosophy, and these Truths were realized and accepted as valid by humanity as a whole, for the past 197 years?? But of course this question is moot, because it expresses an impossibility, If Mary Shelley had written such a book and presented it as factual reality and non-fiction 197 years ago, she likely would have been locked up in an institution for the insane, and none of her writings would ever have become known to anyone.
In 1897 a man named Bram Stoker wrote a fictional novel titled “Dracula”. The story details the life path of a human who becomes a vampire and can thrive only by consuming the blood of human beings. Created as a fictional work, the storyline expresses and reveals profoundly valuable Forbidden Truths on the human condition, how all humans cope with the horrors of their own existence by feeding upon others, sucking and extracting from others what they canot create within theselves, destroying others in reflection of how they have been destroyed. The vampiric need to extract from others, is central to the human tragedy of genetic and environmental brain defect and dysfunction.
But this book was written as a fictional novel. All of the profound Truths it reveals regarding universal human vampirism are lost and invisible to the literally billions of humans who have become familiar with the concept of vampires, as a result of Bram’s book. So here we have another profound artistic failure. Art was not used to express Truth, and art was not realized by its patrons as expressing Truth, even though profound Truth absolutely does exist within the artistic creation itself.
Now, let us consider the Werewolf texts. Dating back to the early 1800’s, dozens of books, stories, and movies have been artistically created, dealing with the werewolf theme: A human being who transforms into a vicious, bloodthirsty, homicidal beast. But all of these texts and movies were created and marketed as fiction, concealing the Forbidden Truth that we are all homicidally enraged, we all wear masks in order to fit into the social matrix, we all desire to harm, to destroy, to exact vengeance for the victimization and injustice we have all been subjected to.
But no, the werewolf is presented as mythological fiction, to entertain, shock, and frighten. Truth is destroyed, as all human potential to recognize and appreciate its actual, factual nature, is sublimated and lost. Art is deployed to cover-up Truth, the werewolf is shunned as a rare malformation, instead of understood as dwelling within each of us, from the serial killer to the mom who spanks her son to the husband who rapes his wife to the boss who bullies his employees.
So let us understand this: Every work of art expresses and reveals Forbidden Truth. The artist who writes fluffy romance novels is revealing the Forbidden Truth of toxic human emotional dependency and enmeshment. The artist who writes a song exalting monetary wealth, Madonna and “Material Girl” come to mind, reveals the Forbidden Truth of how money is deployed by society to ensure universal slavery for all. There is no genuine value, external to Self, for the artist to be aware of the Truth he is expressing and revealing, because in terms of external recognition and integration to core consciousness, Forbidden Truth is and will always be pathologically rejected by the Unwashed Masses. And the vast majority of all artists are of course completely unaware, on a conscious level, of the Truths they are revealing. This is how the failed artist must be defined and understood.
Any artist who wishes to attain any degree of “success” in terms of external recognition, must present artistic Truth as fiction. Therefore, every successful artist, every known and appreciated artist, is a liar, lying either to Himself, or to his audience, or both.
I am an outlaw artist, destined to be ostracized, villified, mocked, and rejected, by all who come into contact with my artistic creations, save a tiny handful of aspiring or actual Superiors. As an outlaw artist, I destroy in order to create, positioning every creation as an act of destruction. Everything I create, I create for Myself, to honor and exalt Self and Truth. Everything I create comes into existence to please Me. The target audience is Me, the intended message is directed towards Me. So it has always been, so it shall always be, until I lose Myself to the limitless tragedy of eternal nothingness.
My success as an artist is proven in your rejection of Me and of Truth. This rejection is what renders Me the greatest artist of the 21st century.
