Blogging tonight as part of my routine of getting our the house and writing.
As my blog was originally created to discuss sci-fi and horror with the implicit element of fantasy between them, along with the autism talk, it always was an escapism of mine.
The eagle eyed reader will notice that I remained the blog in reference to what I call my esoteric heart.
However it didn’t take long to regret the decision so it will probably change again soon.
Well the journey to defeat the mental health issues I’ve always been plagued with is based on the understanding that I needed to finally grow up and be independent.
Escapism into fantasy seems to be essential to the concept of play that we humans of any age need to make life fun.
I look at my autism along with my upbringing and see that I never really grew up. I remain a child at heart and have resisted all the trappings and responsibilities that come with adulthood.
But it is the core reason why I’ve never really respected myself. It’s the reason why I deeply loved my autistic friends but didn’t truly respect them either.
The concept I’m really addressing is Infantilisation.
The child is the most beautiful spirit of humanity, imbued with all the potential of the future while totally unashamedly living for the joy of play.
I remain a child heart because I missed out on so much actual social joy that I would always escape into fantasy.
The child is and always will be vulnerable and needs the parent. I find it fascinating that over the course of my current reading, that humanity in general can be interpreted as being in a juvenile phase.
The psychoanalytical view off Catholic culture observes the symbolic practise of consuming the flesh of the son of God.
The pagan culture symbolically practised the killing of the king and offered frequent human sacrifice to the gods of fertility.
It is in the spirit of subversiveness that I’m drawn to any fantasy that offers something interesting and original.
And so I return to Infantilisation.
Has anyone noticed what is actually being pumped into the cultural consciousness thede days in the name of Escapism?
The same old Nietzschian superman bullshit. All the evils of the world are only to be solved by the supremacist fantasies of order.
The everyday working class man and woman should look to the fantasy for salvation while your “betters” will determine the problem and the solution.
The abnegation of the human will is weaponised to it’s fullest by this nefarious dross.
If I offer any advice it is to fully investigate the agenda of anyone who authors such propaganda.
But fantasy still can be a force for good. Don’t ever stop dreaming of a better world where you are empowered to achieve a life you deserve.
If you’re going to fantasize, imagine a better world but ask yourself how you can achieve it without ever letting anyone else dictate their own warped fantasies in your place.
Adulthood is hard but a life subservient to someone else is repugnant and abhorrent.
Thank you for reading as always
