I have this family tree that my great-grandfather made, on a template that was distributed by some nazi club or something, idk. People were encouraged to fill out these "Ahnentafeln", and apprently he did. That way I found that my family hailed from a village in Moravia-Silesia. The template only goes back like 7 generations, and the earliest entry shows that my 6xgreat grandfather married a woman with the last name "Czech" in 1765. Does this mean I'm a Slav? Even if that's not an actual czech name, it sure as fuck isn't a German one.
I call absolute bullshit.
on what?

So this is not a Slavic surname?
Maybe it's a German surname of very distant Czech origin? There would be no reason for a Czech to take on the surname "Czech" as everyone around him is also a Czech. But a Czech who moved to Germany and assimilated into German culture would stand out as "the Czech guy" and that would become his nickname and eventually surname. Just a guess. I've seen parallels in other cultures.

You can't build up the turtle when black goes e5 Nf6 d5 and plays it like an open Sicilian down a tempo, that's the point.
Kaspacuck was popular in West of course because he was CIA paid agent which is why he moved to West in 1990 year and speak English
He retired from competitive play in 1970, still a strong player as he was pushing 60, to devote himself to his pet project of trying to use computers to improve the efficiency of the planned Soviet economy. Like most communist true believers, the Soviet collapse in the early 90s was very hard on him but he continued working on compsci projects until he died in 1995 at 83. He was working until almost the end despite failing eyesight.
then I just push d4 and don't make the Botvinnik turtle.
Botvinnik was an engineer by profession; it was his day job and chess was more of a hobby of his than his sole existence like Fischer or someone like that. yet one always notices that those grandmasters who live to be old have a more well-balanced life while the ones who die early like Fischer or Alekhine were the guys who really had no life outside of chess.

>"Did not Rollo my ancestor, founder of our nation, with our fathers conquer at Paris the King of the Franks in the heart of his kingdom, nor had the King of the Franks any hope of safety until he humbly offered his daughter and possession of the country, which, after you, is called Normandy."
>"Did not your fathers capture the King of the Franks at Rouen, and keep him there until he restored Normandy to Duke Richard, then a boy; with this condition, that, in every conference between the King of France and the Duke of Normandy, the duke should wear his sword, while the King should not be permitted to carry a sword nor even a dagger. This concession your fathers compelled the great King to submit to, as binding for ever"
>"Did not you, in our own time, engage the Franks at Mortemer? Did not the Franks prefer flight to battle, and use their spurs? While you—Ralph, the commander of the Franks having been slain—reaped the honour and the spoil as the natural result of your usual success."
>"Ah! let any one of the English whom, a hundred times, our predecessors, both Danes and Normans, have defeated in battle, come forth and show that the race of Rollo ever suffered a defeat from his time until now, and I will withdraw conquered."

Does it really matter if people don't have "free will" in the metaphysical sense? People say it undermines morality but I seriously doubt that.
>This guy stabbed me in the kidney but I can't really blame him because his actions were determined by internal and external necessity, oh well
Yes, life would be pointless.
For you.
I think that "free will" makes punishment pointless.
If will is free, then you cant change someones' bad behavior by punishing, so it becomes useless.

Objection 1: It would seem that the Old Law should not have been given to the Jews alone. For the Old Law disposed men for the salvation which was to come through Christ, as stated above ([2065]AA[2],3). But that salvation was to come not to the Jews alone but to all nations, according to Is. 49:6: “It is a small thing that thou shouldst be my servant to raise up the tribes of Jacob, and to convert the dregs of Israel. Behold I have given thee to be the light of the Gentiles, that thou mayest be My salvation, even to the farthest part of the earth.” Therefore the Old Law should have been given to all nations, and not to one people only.

Reply to Objection 1: Although the salvation, which was to come through Christ, was prepared for all nations, yet it was necessary that Christ should be born of one people, which, for this reason, was privileged above other peoples; according to Rom. 9:4: “To whom,” namely the Jews, “belongeth the adoption as of children (of God) . . . and the testament, and the giving of the Law . . . whose are the fathers, and of whom is Christ according to the flesh.”

A Greek Orthodox homosexual Byzantine Emperor and violent usurper was teaching a class on Alexios Angelos, known debt evader.

"Before the class begins, you must get on your knees and worship Alexios Angelos and accept that he was the most majestic Roman Emperor the world has ever known, even greater than Constantine the Great!"

At this moment a brave, patriotic, pro-Guelf Venetian Banker-Knight who had bankrupted over 1500 saracens in the holy land and understood the necessity of the 4th crusade and fully supported all economic decisions made by the Doge stood up and held up a fresh Septuagint.

"Who compiled this Bible, caesaropapist?"

The treacherous Emperor smirked quite Turkicly and smugly replied "The Roman scribes, you stupid barbarian."

"Wrong. It's been 1,000 years since the Roman Empire fell. If it is 1,400 years old and Greece, as you say, is the home of the Romans, then why don't you possess the Eternal City of Rome itself?"

The Emperor was visibly shaken, and dropped his gaudy icon and copy of Plutarch's Parallel Lives. He stormed out of the room crying those Greek crocodile tears. The same tears Greeks cry for the "disgraced Romans" when they jealously try to claw justly earned land from the deserving Crusaders. There is no doubt that at this point our Emperor, Basileus Palaiologos, wished he had more strictly enforced the East-West Union as agreed upon at the Council of Florence. He wished so much that he had the Imperial Sword to kill himself from embarrassment, but he himself had pawned it off to the Venetians!

The students applauded and all joined the Most Serene Republic that day and accepted Pope Eugene IV as Christ's Vicar on Earth. A winged lion named "Mark" flew into the room and shed a tear on the chalk. Dies Irae was sung several times, and the Doge himself showed up and enacted a liquidation of debtors' assets across the country to renovate St. Mark's Basilica.

Holy cope
A mexica dominican homosexual professor and crypto-jew was teaching a class on Cauhtemoc, known usurper

”Before the class begins, you must get on your knees and worship Cauhtemoc and accept that the conquest of the new world was the greatest tragedy in human history, even worse than the fall of Costantinople!”

At this moment, a brave, patriotic, pro-castille Conquistador Castillian who had personally killed 1500 indians and understood the necessity of the conquest and fully supported all military decision made by the Captain-General stood up and held up his wife.

”Of what nation is she, Marrano?”

The arrogant professor smirked quite Moorishly and smugly replied “She is an innocent india, you stupid Castillian”

”Wrong. She was the daughter of a Tarascan Noble house. If it was a genocide and the Spaniards are horrible monsters… then there shouldn't be so many Natives and mestizos in Mexico today”

The professor was visibly shaken, and dropped his copy of the codex mendoza. He stormed out of the room crying those Chicano crocodile tears. The same tears Chicano's cry for the “poor Aztecs” when they jealously try to claw justly earned wealth from the deserving Conquistadores. There is no doubt that at this point our professor, Gonzalo Ramirez, wished he had swore fealty earlier to Cortez and become an ally of Castillia. He wished so much that he be made a human sacrifice from embarrassment, but he himself had denied their existence!

Why is meditation so fucking boring? Thought that after doing it a while I’d start flying around reality and seeing god and shit, but when I talked to my experienced meditating friend he said that this I’m doing it right and that its supposed to just be relaxing. That’s gay, I want to experience something heavy.

Its not really a deeper understanding though. You are most likely just fucking with brain circuits and making temporary new ones that makes the other parts of the brain confused and jarring.

But you dont ever really experience anything that could be called objective reality. And often its after effects can cause people to hallucinate visuals THEY KNOW are impossible to exist. Like seeing a internet account notification on a computer that is turned off.
>But you dont ever really experience anything that could be called objective reality
Reality is subjective, anon, there's no need for something to be objective for it to be true
True-ish, but their are particular commonalities between these meditation ecstasy experiences that often render clarity on what it is. And one of the defining moments of that is its always temporary. There is no dissolution of the body into pure spirit and entering another world.
It just is momentary (hours or days) of hallucination that often result in semi-paralyzation.

If such a divine spiritual realm exists, it probably would look different than that.
Does the fact that it's temporary take away from what it is?

>If such a divine spiritual realm exists, it probably would look different than that.
Yeah, probably
I would say yes its temporary nature takes away from it because its "temporary-ness" leaves a lingering in the subconscious of grounded materialism that truly keeps you from letting go and enjoying it for what it is.
