Waes Hael!

You may call me Seaxwulf. Or if you like (and I like you) my name is Paul. I am a new W.A.S.P, that is, I’m a straight, White Anglo-Saxon Pagan. Actually, I prefer the term Heathen, but that would’ve ruined the fun pun. I enjoy wordplay and it grieves me awful sore to see how the lexicological arts have degraded in the rotten wake of degenerate modernity.

I am an Ethnonationalist, and my legacy will stem from this worldview. But don’t be fooled, that’s not all I am. I’m also looking for love, discovering optimism, and obsessed with creating what a former professor once labelled a “community of culture.” In that vein, I am a proud New Englander who is concerned with the break-down of civilisation and the invasion of his land with foreign elements both actual and metaphorical. With my tongue in cheek I invite you to call me your “Friendly Neighbourhod Fascist.”

I am a Nordicist and general Teutonic enthusiast who waxes Hellenic and has two overarching vices: choice liquor and nature worship – they both leave me speechless. Some of my little vices that don’t leave me speechless; romanticism, transcendentalism, being a wakeful dreamer and “looking.” One of the things I look for is the illusive “Root” of the world-tree, that is, where the various Indo-European branches of Yggdrasil ran backward into the foggy Aryan dew of history. Those are some of my basic character traits. There are others, you can look for them if you please.

Now for the business oriented and patient: what can you expect from this, one of my little corners of the interwebs? Poetry, mostly, essay work when the Spirits move me, miscellaneous existential musings and the odd sketch and drawing. And since I do myself have a business streak, here’s what I would like from you. Stimulate me. The major reason I am here is to fulfil my life’s goal of becoming like Socrates’ Gadfly. I like to poke, prod, provoke and elicit thought – in return I want to be made to think. So with that, go ahead: intrigue me.

Cheers,
Paulus Saxo Lupus,
Interests
I like thought experiments. Always have. Blame Ma, she's always been a head-tripper; favourite saying growing up was "let's say, hypothetically...(insert factually convoluted scenario here.)" As I grow older and lose hope with my age group, thereby becoming the abjectly bitter, cranky man my confirmation bias always told me I would someday be, it occurs to me that critical thinking is at a loss. It's not popular.

I've noticed a trend. With these Twitters, and Facebergs, with Snapchat and, oh, what's the other one? With this background noise culture, its constant pulse, its frenetic, quiet desperation and thirst for escalatory stimulus... what can we expect but mass diagnoses of ADD et. al? Yet it remains. People seem genuinely adverse to think. Reality has become a tacitly plastic concept. Because so few people appear to dabble in the esoteric questions such as the whys, the hows, and wherefores of it all. (See what I did there?)

But you. You are reading this. By token of the fact that these words of mind, preserved by electric space, have traversed the scrolling marquee of your brain, prove this to be true. But what is reading? When you speak, when you write, when you - wait for it - when you think, what is this thing that is doing the work? What is this "you?"

You are the sum of your experiences combined with the carrying capacity to move forward, to adapt. But you are defined by what goes before you. Does that answer the question of you?

Are you merely a product of engineering? A meat machine on a grassy gnoll waiting to receive that one last bolt to the neck that makes Frankenstein's Monster go: "eureka!"? If you distil your experiences, give credence to your variables, is there something deeper still which does the calculating?

Is this you a static thing? Most of us change, evolve. But are you a victim of environmental circumstances, or can you affect your own change by predicting and adapting to the variables which affect you? Can you change yourself according to synthetic values?

What Are You?

I just take notice of people who can speak eloquently. Vocabulary enhancement has never been a strong point of mine and it frustrates me to no end. Especially since I'm a writer.
