12 Rules For Monk Mode #5: Play By The Rules

This is the fifth of a 12-part series remixing Jordan Peterson’s book 12 Rules For Lifeone chapter a week to coincide with the 12 weeks remaining for my one year celibacy vow.


We can argue all we like, but the fact is we have new rules in our society.

Why else did we go MGTOW? The legal rules in divorce and family court made it too risky to get married, and the new social rules of #MeToo make it too risky to date.

As we know, there is a section of us that are still in the Red Pill Rage, and frequent these circles that continuously churn out content related to the various ways we are degrading as a society, especially pertaining to the behavior of women. But returning to the scene of the crime isn’t going to help you heal.

“It is the things that occur every single day that truly make up our lives, and time spent the same way over and again adds up at an alarming rate…

No matter how good your intentions, or how sweet and tolerant your temperament, you will not maintain good relations with someone you fight with for a month and half of work weeks per year. Resentment will inevitably build.

Even if it doesn’t, all that wasted, unpleasant time could clearly be spent in more productive and useful and less stressful and more enjoyable activity.

p. 117, 118

We need to start seeing our lives more holistically, through the theme of compound interest. Every day is just a single brick to build the castle walls that will one day become the headquarters of your empire. Every day won’t be easy; some will feel like pennies, others like a dollar. But as long as you stay focused on building momentum, you will steadily see growth in positive directions.

The issue at hand, of course, is the lack of emotional support on dealing with the discontent within the “rage” phase. Men just don’t have the same emotional release ability that women do. As much as feminists want to believe it is due to toxic masculinity, the presence of testosterone makes it extremely difficult to physically expel those difficult emotions through therapeutic discussion and/or crying.

As men, we need to find a better outlet.

I’m not even willing to admit that I’ve gotten over the rage phase. I am simply choosing to ignore it by going Monk Mode. I know for certain that nothing positive will come about from my participation in the circles I mentioned earlier, but something of worth can be achieved if I instead seek within.

Today’s episode is about how we have actually gained much more than we have lost by going MGTOW Monk Mode.

“We assume that rules will irremediably inhibit what would otherwise be the boundless and intrinsic creativity of our children, even though the scientific literature clearly indicates, first, that creativity beyond the trivial is shockingly rare and, second, that strict limitations facilitate rather than inhibit creative achievement.”

p. 124

People view the lives of celibates, ascetics, and minimalists as ones with strict limitations, but what if those are the groups of people that are able to express and collect the most experience out of life?

Most people are slaves to their food and sex drives, and so fasting and abstinence are actually practices of freedom. Likewise, “the things you own end up owning you”, and so we put a limit on our possessions too through minimalism, so that we may move more freely.

“Discipline is freedom”, after all.

Not only am I on a one year celibacy vow, but I am also practicing No Fap, and so far I have gone six months without consuming any porn. However, the urge to relapse has been very strong lately.

But every day that I struggle with it, I continue to search deeper about where those feelings are coming from, and why? Is it loneliness, or lack of self expression? Equally I also ask myself why I should continue with these limitations, but then I look back on all the time spent on this experiment, and how putting a hard cap on my sexual exploration has allowed it to express itself in other ways.

Firstly, it was interesting to see myself seek out romance through watching anime, which I discussed in an earlier post: 1 Year Celibacy Update – 98 Days Remaining

A failure to properly sublimate my dissatisfaction and desires led me to engaging in escapism.

After the Yoko incident, I chose more wholesome anime, but still consumed it for a slightly similar reason. Over the last month, I have binge watched around 300 episodes of Naruto, with the urgency stemming from wanting to get to the end of the series and the start of its sequel, Boruto, as the romance between the main character and a love interest is finally resolved with them marrying and having children.

I was not interested in watching the filler episodes this time, but the only ones I would have sat through were the ones with Naurto and Hinata, so I actually searched YouTube for a compilation of all their exchanges so I wouldn’t miss out on anything. One of the YouTube comments said “I wish Hinata was real.”, and I really resonated with that, I must admit.

Yeah, I made it to Boruto now, by the way. I finally became proficient enough at my job to watch episodes alongside it, and was able to put in some 9+ hour work days to finish up Shippuden and get to the wedding. Last night, I actually dreamed that I went on two dates with Hinata.

But alas, this is just one observation.

I’ve been drafting a lot of creative content recently, not like these blog posts, but music, lyrics, novels, and even video game ideas.

What was most interesting as well was that my most recent idea for a novel had mature sexual themes in it, which is obviously a direct expression of my sexual emotions, but of course redirected in a more creative way, rather than all that energy being expended into the void through consuming porn and masturbating.

This experience has taught me that when we choose to go Monk Mode, we must take time to reflect on our progress and ascertain what we have gained through our experiments, as opposed to a mourning of our non-participation within the mainstream.

So many men are treating the difficulties in dating and marriage these days as such a tragedy, but what if it’s a blessing in disguise?

Play By The Rules

Each person’s private trouble cannot be solved by a social revolution, because revolutions are destabilizing and dangerous. We have learned to live together and organize our complex societies slowly and incrementally, over vast stretches of time, and we do not understand with sufficient exactitude why what we are doing works. Thus, altering our ways carelessly in the name of some ideological shibboleth is likely to produce far more trouble than good, given the suffering that even small revolutions generally produce.”

pp. 119

There’s a running fantasy within MGTOW for more men to become red-pilled and completely opt out of the system as a protest in order to restore society. Simps and spinsters get pies in their face, and declines in marriage rates and the closing of bridal shops receives applause. What was first an underground hideout for men seeking self-preservation has now, in some spaces, become a headquarters for a quiet social revolution.

What is ironic, though, is that the quote above is actually targeted at the more liberal groups pushing for far more social change through feminism and other diversity affairs. But I am opposed to both sides, however, as I stated in the previous episode, as I see conservatism (not politically, but culturally) decreasing, which I symbolized as ice melting, and instead of trying to freeze it back, we must see the future and know that water eventually evaporates, and then re-forms into ice much later.

A great practice in Stoicism is learning what is within our control, and foregoing all the things that aren’t is essentially the theme of Episode 3: Only Seek Your Power. However, this episode will differ slightly, as it is more about seeing worth (gratitude) in the very circumstances we struggle against.

Crisis and Opportunity

The Chinese characters for “crisis” are commonly interpreted in the West as a cross between “danger” and “opportunity.” This is particularly why I see futility in engorging ourselves in social change in modern times, as there’s always some other group that is benefiting (seeing “opportunity”) from whatever scenario you have labelled as “danger”.

For instance, the Pick-up Artists have benefited greatly from the sexual liberation of women through feminism, but more conservative men have obviously been bit by the bullet at the other end.

I don’t necessarily want men to become less conservative, but if your society has become so, I absolutely do not want them to swim against the tide, or yell at the sky. At this point, common advice to men who still desire the family life is to completely abandon America altogether, and marry abroad, (with strong emphasis on staying abroad as well).

“The evidence strongly suggests that human beings have become more peaceful, rather than less so, as time has progressed and societies became larger and more organized.

The !Kung bushmen of Africa…had a yearly murder rate of 40 per 100,00, which declined by more than 30% once they became subject to state authority. This is a very instructive example of complex social structures serving to reduce, not exacerbate, the violent tendencies of human beings.”

p. 121

Feminism can be said to be a consequence of peace and prosperity, and likewise, we could also be in the middle of the “good times create weak men/weak men create hard times” portion of the cycle. (If you’ve never heard of this, subsequently, hard times will create strong men, and strong men create good times.)

But we should step back and realize that we all benefit from this period of prosperity, even if it is degrading us culturally. The amount of wars in the world has been decreasing, and if I wasn’t so academically capable (and didn’t mind cutting my hair), I would have joined the military a long time ago to escape my circumstances. The military is more likely a safer career than a police officer these days.

When the world around us becomes too difficult, we should immediately stop seeking outward and only seek inward for our expression of power. But when we become strong enough to look externally again, we should cease in only seeing the danger, and instead always seek out the opportunities.

This also has nothing to do with optimism or positive thinking; it’s just about not allowing the perfect to be the enemy of the good. Of course, society can be improved. Everything can be improved, and to seek that is to be a living human, constantly in motion. But someone somewhere actually thinks things are good enough, or that this situation is even better. You may not be seeing the full picture, and you could use more objectivity as well.

So what is playing by the rules, exactly?

Simple. Stop trying to change society. Don’t change the rules of the game, externally. If you want to keep the rules you play by, simply change where you play.

“It’s also not for the best that all human corruption is uncritically laid at society’s feet. That conclusion merely displaces the problem, back in time. It explains nothing, and solves no problems. If society is corrupt, but not the individuals within it, then where did the corruption originate? How is it propagated? It’s a one-sided, deeply ideological theory.”

p. 118

I absolutely do not agree with America’s level of debt. But the citizens are in debt too, especially women, who hold the majority of the student loan debt in the country. Colttaine, near the end of his Matrix Behind The Matrix video believes that the bankers are never going to let that money walk, but there’s nothing stopping the majority of the voting base (women) from seeking out a way to socialize that debt, especially with the infinite printing press that is the Federal Reserve.

As someone with a 767 credit score, I think the country is absolutely rotten just for this respect only. But nonetheless, America is still the last institution expected to fall, and has only had it’s credit rating fall to an AA- since 2012, and at least before the Corona Virus fiasco.

Am I going to protest? Not at all. I’m going to continue to pay my taxes and be a good citizen (with my dollars at least, my cryptocurrency doesn’t exist), but I still definitely see “danger” here, as I don’t want to be around for when it’s finally time to tighten our belts, and so I’m simply going to quietly change MY game. I will ghost in plain sight, but secretly work on my exit strategy. I can find more fiscally responsible countries, or I can start to acquire more real assets, like land and self-sufficiency, and rely less on fiat currency.


The world is such a big place with endless opportunities, and so I am becoming deeply suspicious on why we hold such strong attachments to certain things, especially as MGTOW, that we feel we must lament it’s loss and fight to restore it.

Conservatism, by definition, is not creative. Once again, I do not have an issue with Conservatism itself, but only when one desires it when the rules have clearly changed. If you are Red Pill and you are like this, you are in the rage phase. If you are blue pill and you are like this, you will probably get divorced or #MeToo’d.

Now has it become clear?

Playing by the rules is just Stoicism and non-attachment. However, you can also benefit from the crisis if you play along and beat them at their own game. TFM has repeated that trans activists have done more for men’s rights than the actual Men’s Rights Movement, and TFM himself identifies as a “masculine presenting trans-gendered lesbian”, and encourages others to do so with a legal gender change, as there have been several success stories of men saving their jobs and even their financial aid for school by just changing that one letter on their ID card.

If we live in Clown World, and you’re not a clown, then the joke is on you.

Jordan Peterson explained quite well that despite how much children rebel against structure, it is actually good for them, as regulated meal and sleeping times prevents them from becoming irritable, and a lack of discipline from the parent leads the children to become frustrated and angry all the time, especially out in public.

So rules are good for us, but the best rules we can play by are the ones we apply to ourselves. After all, you don’t have to be MGTOW and red pilled. But you keep choosing the lifestyle for a reason, and it’s probably because you recognize, maybe not even consciously, that some rules, some limitations, actually allow you to grow.

For example, you may have realized, despite your tantrums, that cutting out women from your life has saved you time and money that allows you to now more seriously pursue your hobbies or career.

So, play by the strictest rules of all, and go Monk Mode, and see how far the roots and branches of the Tree of Life can truly grow.

Meditate on these matters.

And I will not see you on the Far Side, but next week Sunday at 12PM, every week for the rest of this series.

Thank you for reading. – Monk Moon Base

12 Rules of Monk Mode #3: Only Seek Your Power

This is the third of a 12-part series remixing Jordan Peterson’s book 12 Rules For Lifeone chapter a week to coincide with the 12 weeks remaining for my one year celibacy vow.

When you dare aspire upward, you reveal the inadequacy of the present and the promise of the future. Then you disturb others, in the depths of their souls, where they understand that their cynicism and immobility are unjustifiable. You play Abel to their Cain. You remind them that they ceased caring not because of life’s horrors, which are undeniable, but because they do not want to lift the world up on to their shoulders, where it belongs.”

p. 83

They say all roads lead to MGTOW, and so Monk Mode must be the most upward place and direction. When a man goes MGTOW Monk, it is immediately obvious that, unless he was previously blessed with some godlike awareness, an inadequacy within the present has encouraged him to seek within and make a promise for his own future. He is deciding to secure that future instead of gambling against the current dating scene, divorce rates, and family court laws.

MGTOW disturbs the TFL/Black Pill crowd, because we serve as an unbearable bright light among their cynicism and immobility. They can not fathom that what they yearn for the most is intentionally avoided by MGTOW men.

Likewise, MGTOW is also a blight to the the Blue Pill, as these individuals’ futures rely on the present, and recognizing the validity of MGTOW places uncertainty onto their future goals.

If they were content, they would simply ignore us, and we would have no effect.

However, and here is why I say I give out red pills that are of this world, if MGTOW men were content, they too would also ignore the decadence of the world, and it would have little effect.

Welcome to Episode 3: Avoid failure, and Only Seek Your Own Power.

The Repetition Compulsion Complex

“Sometimes, when people have a low opinion of their own worth— or, perhaps, when they refuse responsibility for their lives–they choose a new acquaintance, of precisely the type who proved troublesome in the past. Such people don’t believe that they deserve any better–so they don’t go looking for it. Or, perhaps they don’t want the trouble of better. Freud called this a “repetition compulsion.” He thought of it as an unconscious drive to repeat the horrors of the past–sometimes, perhaps, to formulate those horrors more precisely, sometimes to attempt more active mastery and sometimes, perhaps, because no alternatives beckon.

p. 75

MGTOW men don’t appear to ascribe themselves as low worth, unfortunately that is more likely within the Incel/TFL/Black Pill community. However, in both groups, I would say there are a fair number who refuse responsibility, and fall into the repetition compulsion complex.

Now, the context in which others tell MGTOW or Incels to take responsibility is usually related to women, and how both groups of men are not trying hard enough to find a good one, or just get with one at all. However, I have already explained why pursuing women leads to Chaos within men. Therefore, the responsibility I am encouraging for men is for their own personal well-being, separate from external factors.

I am asking men to find peace, purpose, and stillness in solitude. I am asking men to go Monk Mode.

“I feel like my life is worth more than some pussy…than some ran through hoes… I made a decision…I’m not approaching no more females…I took all that energy and put it into myself, and now I’m making so much money, I have the potential to be my own boss at 22.” – VVS

The following quote is from VVS’ video “FUCK THE NEGATIVITY“, in which he announces that he is no longer consuming or producing Incel/TFL content.

The truth hurts, but you don’t have to hurt yourself over and over again once you get it. Take the Red Pill, or the Black Pill, and then move on, evolve, with this new knowledge.

Like Tank said in the Matrix about Neo’s test to jump across a street to a rooftop in The Matrix, “No one ever makes the first jump.”

While that turned out to be true, we can not spend our time looking down at how far the fall is;. We have to aspire above and eventually take the leap forward.

The same applies to MGTOW as well. You do not need “a red pill a day.” Learn the truth, and then use the truth. Many will claim the repetition compulsion of consuming content primarily concerning female nature is indeed to “formulate the horrors to attempt active mastery”, but I believe it’s the latter: “because no alternatives beckon.”

They are still the same broken men, picking at their scabs, prolonging its process to heal.

Many smell this festering of wounds, and they leave MGTOW, like VVS has left Incel/TFL. That is why I am here, to convince men to make the jump.

The Jump To Go Monk

“It is far more likely that a given individual has just decided to reject the path upward, because of its difficulty…failure is easy to understand...fear, hatred, addiction, promiscuity, betrayal and deception require no explanation… It’s easier not to shoulder a burden. It’s easier not to think, and not to do, and not to care…

Maybe your misery is a demand placed on me so that I fail too, so that the gap you so painfully feel between us can be reduced, while you degenerate and sink. How do I know that you would refuse to play such a game?”

pp. 80-81

These are comments for VVS. According to the first two respondents, if you are not entrenched on the reality of your defeat daily, you are coping. Any other orientation is betrayal. In fact, repetition of your hopelessness is actually a solution to the problem.

“these problems are in our faces everyday and we need livestreams what else we got

Here it is, in plain view. No alternatives beckon.

The “Black Pill” was merely the realization that their hangovers could be cured with more alcohol. The poison has become the medication.

“Or maybe you have no plan, genuine or otherwise, to rescue anybody. You’re associating with people who are bad for you not because it’s better for anyone but because it’s easier. You know it. Your friends know it. You’re all bound by an implicit contract–one aimed at nihilism, and failure, and suffering of the stupidest sort. You’ve all decided to sacrifice the future to the present.

You don’t talk about it. you don’t all get together and say, ‘Let’s take the easier path. Let’s indulge in whatever the moment might bring. And let’s agree, further, not to call each other on it. That way, we can more easily forget what we are doing.‘ You don’t mention any of that. But you all know what’s really going on.”

pp. 79-80

These MGTOW and Black Pill content creators whose material only consists of either the futility or folly of our current state in society and gender dynamics are precisely the bad crowd taking the easy road. Failure doesn’t have to be explained. This is just circle-jerking over a dead horse.

The future is being sacrificed for the present when men engage with this content, not because I am extending a hopeful and optimistic view that things will get better later, but because they are sacrificing their internal expression of their own futures for the external focus on the circumstances of the present.

Maybe your misery is your attempt to prove the world’s injustice, instead of the evidence of your own sin, your own missing of the mark, your conscious refusal to strive and to live…Maybe it’s your revenge on Being. How exactly should I befriend you when you’re in such a place?

You should choose people who want things to be better, not worse. It’s a good thing, not a selfish thing, to choose people who are good for you. It’s appropriate and praiseworthy to associate with people whose lives would be improved if they saw your life improve.”

pp. 81-82

These content creators and the consumers indulging in it do not want the best for society. Their lives do not improve when it improves, but only when there is more decline and division, because it confirms their choice to participate on the dark path.

If all the ills of society were suddenly cured, these content creators would evaporate from running out of material, because their project is revenge, and nothing more.

There is no plan. They are not trying to save you. They are simply indulging in the drama of today’s affairs. Any benefits to your well-being are simply by-products of you avoiding the car crash they are telling you to look at.

This is why we must engage in Monk Mode and find the Way, because seeking within and focusing on the internal will only produce things of meaning and permanence.

To return to the Matrix example, These men are focused on the fall and the spectacle of others falling.

Now, I don’t want the men to make the jump across the street using some Positive thinking/Hope/Faith strategy so that they can overcome all the things their ideologies have warned they would surely fail in (marriage/dating/etc.), but I want men to enter Monk Mode and make the jump so that they transcend the entire meaning of the street itself.

Marriage. Divorce. Tinder swipes. Thots. Simps. All of it, transcended.

Don’t jump to get over, jump to be above. Don’t cross a barrier, don’t bend the spoon. Realize there is no barrier and there is no spoon; there is only you.

You were always the Master. You only failed because you allowed yourself to be defined as a player in another person’s game. Play your game, and make damn sure that it’s one that you always win.

If you had control over your environment, of course, you would wish for many external factors to be changed to be conducive to your happiness, but we don’t always have this control. However, we have at least some dominion over our own mind; should we not also wish for our internal states to default to happiness, or orderliness?

“Before you help someone, you should find out why that person is in trouble. You shouldn’t merely assume that he or she is a noble victim of unjust circumstances and exploitation. It’s the most unlikely explanation, not the most probable…if you buy the story that everything terrible just happened on its own, with no personal responsibility on the part of the victim, you deny that person all agency in the past (and, by implication, in the present and future, as well). In this manner, you strip him or her of all power.”

p. 80

Happiness need not be the goal. In fact, for a time I preferred neutrality and stoicism over any passionate states. Some people are also more talented at using their negative emotions as fuel, so I’m not against being negative.

But you must absolutely take control over these emotions and circumstances if you choose this path. Any person or situation that can trigger you emotionally can rob you of your power.

Incels will lament that they were born unattractive; it happened on its own. MGTOW will blame feminism and the family courts for their unjust circumstances and exploitation.

I’m not going to argue with this. I might even agree. I don’t want to assign you agency to these things. These are institutions and conditions that are bigger than you. Assigned to you without consent.

But you still have power.

No, I am not a motivational speaker telling you that you have power to change these circumstances. I am saying you still have power in some other way, to do other things.

When a building catches fire, you are no longer responsible for anything inside; you are only responsible for securing yourself. And that fire could very well take everything you own.

A divorce could take half of what you own. Poor genetics may make it difficult for you to ever have a woman for your own. Some men will remain paralyzed to watch the fire in horror. Others will wait to recover what they can from the remains. Only a final few will simply walk away, knowing the only real option left is to find a new place to sleep for the night, and tomorrow, begin the plan to rebuild.

VVS has built himself a new home. He is unrecognizable to those still residing within the ashes.

It’s fine to feel like shit. It’s fine to know society is shit. But you still have power, somehow, somewhere, and you need to find it and start using it immediately, so that you may transcend this Hell and give yourself a straight shot into Heaven.

Monk Mode is the internal practice of becoming the carpenter for your own future. Let the flames of the world be damned. Just build. Build above the flames if you have to. But don’t ever stop building.

Don’t ever stop seeking your own power.

“The present is theirs; the future, for which I have really worked, is mine.” – Nikola Tesla

12 Rules for Monk Mode #2: Walk The Narrow Way

This is the second of a 12-part series remixing Jordan Peterson’s book 12 Rules For Life, one chapter a week to coincide with the 12 weeks remaining for my one year celibacy vow.

In the previous episode of this series, we detached from the pursuit of women using the Taoist Order & Chaos dynamic, as men being the masculine Order trying to control the feminine Chaos is wasteful, as Chaos has a natural potential to select itself into Order.

This episode will be applying the same dynamic to the whole of society.

Too Little Order

“Order is the stability of your marriage. It’s buttressed by the traditions of the past and by your expectations — grounded, often invisibly, in those traditions. Chaos is that stability crumbling under your feet when you discover your partner’s infidelity. Chaos is the experience of reeling unbound and unsupported through space when your guiding routines and traditions collapse.”

p. 37

Tradition, and expectation.

That is, in it’s simplest form, what society is surviving on. Believe it or not, without gold to back up the currency, tradition and expectation is also what’s behind the strength and trading of the US Dollar.

This same invisible quality is what sold you onto the Blue Pill idea. And what’s even more powerful about it is that it works in two ways: even if traditions are broken, the whole system could still survive solely on expectation.

So when it all falls apart, for sure this time, we deny it, try to bargain with it, curse at it, hide from it, and a few of us even die from it.

In the same way that us men have forgotten our instincts to not seek out Chaos (pursue women) but instead focus solely on expanding our own Order (which attracts them anyway), modern comfort has also led us to lose our place in society, forgetting that civilization is not one big umbrella Order protecting us, but that it is comprised of a multitude of tiny units of Order working together.

It’s a time when we should purposefully miss the forest and focus on our own tree. Otherwise, devastating effects will occur when a man who has forgotten his own sense of masculine Order suddenly finds himself within Chaos, “reeling unbound and unsupported” as the “traditions and expectations” he had for society have fallen through.

The high rates of male suicide are a prime example for this.

Too Much Order

“Order is the place where the behavior of the world matches our expectations and our desires; the place where all things turn out the way we want them to. But order is sometimes tyranny and stultification, as well, when the demand for certainty and uniformity and purity becomes too one-sided.”

p. 36

In Alice in Wonderland, after getting through the rabbit hole, Alice drinks a bottle that ends up turning her very small. The same happens to the men I described above after taking the red pill, in which they eventually feel small and fall into depression.

But in Wonderland, a few moments later, Alice ate from a cake that then made her too large, resulting in her crying so much that when she returned to her normal size, she was able to swim in her own tears. This too happens to Red Pill men during the anger phase of the grief cycle, or better known in this context as The “Red Pill Rage”.

A common criticism of MGTOW is that for a group of men supposedly detached from women, they talk an awful lot about them, and it’s true. But there’s also talk about other men (Simps), and my favorite giveaway for someone still attached to the Order of the system: “degeneracy.”

MGTOW was supposed to be the last place I would expect to see lamentations of such a thing, but the space has also become a meeting ground for disenfranchised traditional conservatives to vent their rage.

It is supposed to be your own way, which I would expect to be very narrow. But how wide does your way become when it concerns the behavior of Thots, Simps, and degenerates who are apparently beneath you? And yet, you do not notice that you still depend and interact with them.

Your taxes are going to Tyrone’s baby mama. The Simp is delivering your Amazon package. The degenerate bags your groceries.


So no, you are not going your own way. You just want things to go your way.

The first group of men that could not overcome the depression/”valley of suicide” phase suffered from a lack of internal Order, making them small, along with the loss of external Order that was previously directing them from society above. The second group of men in the rage phase have some internal Order, making them large, but still suffering from the same loss of external Order, and they spend their time swimming in their own tears.

If society has descended into Chaos, then you are out of place attempting to restore Order to it. If instead society is still somewhat orderly, but not to the quality you desire, you are applying Order onto Order, which develops into tyranny.

Order can not be restored, it is simply maintained. Chaos can not be controlled, it is simply allowed to fall in line.

Observe how liberal cities like California and New York are losing growth, and people (especially from the former) are fleeing to places like Texas, which is ironic, since Texas is notorious for its Conservatism (aka, its Order). This is Chaos falling in line.

The Narrow Way

“The Taoist juxtaposition of yin and yang, for example, doesn’t simply portray chaos and order as the fundamental elements of Being — it also tells you how to act. The Way, the Taoist path of life, is represented by (or exists on) the border between the twin serpents. The Way is the path of proper Being. It’s the Way as that referred to by Christ in John 14:6: I am the way, and the truth and the life. The same idea is expressed in Matthew 7:14: Because strait is the gate, and narrow is the way, which leads unto life, and few there be that find it.

p. 43

The Red Pill is simply knowledge (truth), but MGTOW is the way and the life, with Monk Mode being the narrow way that very few find.

Consider how actual Monks live in temples and monasteries away from society. Even if they reside in society, like a Church priest, the way they live their lives is so narrow, it’s almost impossible for mainstream society to recognize them as regular participants or common citizens.

It is true what Aristotle has said:

“Man is by nature a social animal; an individual who is unsocial naturally and not accidentally is either beneath our notice or more than human. Society is something that precedes the individual. Anyone who either cannot lead the common life or is so self-sufficient as not to need to, and therefore does not partake of society, is either a beast or a god. ”

Monks are miniature Gods among us.

We in the mainstream over-consume on food, sex, and comfort, while the Monks have made a lifestyle of fasting, and abstinence. Some don’t even sleep on beds. Yet in our excess the depth of these alternatives slip our notice.

This is likely due to the Monastic habit of not imposing on society. They simply live the Narrow Way, and maintain their Order.

Heaven and Hell

“And even if we had defeated all the snakes that beset us from without, reptilian and human alike, we would still not have been safe. Nor are we now. We have seen the enemy, after all, and he is us. The snake inhabits each of our souls.”

p. 46

We can shame the Simps, trash the Thots, fight Feminism, end the welfare state, heck, even take women’s rights away. All of this could indeed bring our society progress, but this would not be going our own way, but whatever way the wind is blowing in society while we try to direct its course.

This is also too wide of a way because when the Order we are mourning in society is finally restored, it’s possible the previous way you were going will dissolve. We would have just been a fair-weather MGTOW, or a MGTOW in protest.

Which of course, at its heart, is not necessarily a bad thing. I myself am not teaching men to be adverse to women, marriage, children, or society. If any of these things are in your heart, I truly want you to be able to obtain them. But if you are just a MGTOW in protest, I must ask you, do you want you to become new, to become better, or return to the same?

“Strengthen the individual. Start with yourself. Take care with yourself. Define who you are. Refine your personality. Choose your destination and articulate your Being…

You could help direct the world, on its careening trajectory, a bit more toward Heaven and a bit more away from Hell. Once having understood Hell, researched it, so to speak– particularly your own individual Hell— you could decide against going there or creating that. You could aim elsewhere. You could, in fact devote your life to this. That would give you a Meaning, with a capital M. That would justify your miserable existence.”

pp. 63-64

The Red Pill was supposed to be a tool, an asset. But to become a MGTOW in protest, or any form of MRA, is to admit that the Red Pill has actually placed you into hell, which I will reiterate, is not a bad thing. You are attempting to return the world more towards your idea of Heaven, and I am probably on your side.

But I need you to seek further within yourself first; to go deeper into Hell. We are still only mildly among the flames, otherwise, we would not be comfortably barking about these other troubles. But if we were to truly commit to Monk Mode, to silence the world to see through to the very core of our suffering, I guarantee the men we would become would be far more silent, either from peace or determination, for all would wish for the way out of hell to be more narrow rather than wide.

“Take pain, for example–subjective pain. That’s something so real no argument can stand against it. Everyone acts as if their pain is real–ultimately, finally real. Pain matters, more than matter matters. It is for this reason, I believe that so many of the world’s traditions regards the suffering attendant upon existence as the irreducible truth of Being.”

p.35

Living Inside-Out

“Perhaps Heaven is something you must build, and immortality something you must earn.”

p.54

If Heaven must be built, then Monk Mode is simply the demolition to clear for its foundation.

Food. Sex. Comfort. This is what the Monastic Monks sacrifice to get into Heaven. What will it be for you?

You could start a strict diet or fasting routine. Take a temporary vow of celibacy, and abstain from porn and orgasm for a while. You could cut out movies and television. Take cold showers every morning.

These can all work, as it will be very difficult for you to care about the latest feminist outrage when all you want is a simple cup of ice water during a dry fast, but still these are only on the surface.

To find out what you really need to be free, identify everything that you feel has been or can be taken from you, especially after the Red Pill, and then freely give it all away.

Absence makes the heart grow fonder, and abstinence makes the fires of your individual Hell much hotter.

Hear the screams of your heart, and endure them alone.

Persevere through the pain, and then pursue more pain.

Do not be satisfied with the first answer, or the fifth answer, or the fiftieth answer. Continue to pursue the truth until your life becomes a singular point. Until the way goes from wide to narrow.

Chaos is also the formless potential from which the God of Genesis I called forth order using language at the beginning of time. It’s the same potential from which we, made in that Image, call forth the novel and ever-changing moments of our lives. And Chaos is freedom, dreadful freedom , too.”‘

p. 36

Why do you figure that mediation, a practice meant for the mind, requires stillness from the body? It is because the body is orderly, so much so that most of its processes can function without our control. We can breathe unconsciously. But the mind, however, is constantly racing, making it the Chaos, the “formless potential.”

So when we take the few limbs of the body we are responsible for and keep them still, over time, the Chaos of the mind also settles, as it follows the stillness established by the body. It was the mind, however, that instructed the body to be still in the first place.

In that same respect, there was a Chaos within your life that led you to discovering the Red Pill and later choosing to go MGTOW in an effort to re-order your life.

So, that is why we must walk the narrow Way, to find the absolute Order within us that provides the focus, clarity, and stillness that will govern our entire lives.

The Blue Pill was everything outside of us. It never cared about what we felt on the inside at any point along the way. Don’t complain, just follow the trajectory: Get married, buy a house, have kids. It was the perfect formula.

It was orderly. Too orderly.

So it’s no surprise to me that Chaos, the feminine, would rise up to disturb that Order. It wanted “freedom, dreadful freedom.” This Chaos destroyed your external Order, leaving you with internal Chaos. But just as Order became Chaos, through MGTOW Monk Mode, your internal Chaos will manifest into internal Order.

The break-up, the divorce, losing custody, it all left you alone. But you should be thankful, because alone was all that you ever really needed. The Chaos taught you that you can no longer rely on the external, and forced you to seek from within.

So will you take the challenge? Will you tame the Chaos inside of you instead of seeking to curb the Chaos of others? Will you no longer rely on external Order and simply expand the Order within you?

Are you willing to live on the inside-out, seeking only your truest genuine expression, and not from the outside-in, wanting to be fulfilled by tradition and expectation?

“There is nothing outside of yourself that can ever enable you to get better, stronger, richer, quicker, or smarter. Everything is within. Everything exists. Seek nothing outside of yourself.” – Miyamoto Musashi

12 Rules For (Monk Mode) Life: #1 – Live Like The Lobster

This is the first of a 12-part series, where I will be remixing one chapter a week of Jordan Peterson’s book 12 Rules For Life, to coincide with the 12 weeks remaining for my one year celibacy vow.

“It is also a mistake to conceptualize nature romantically. Rich, modern city-dwellers, surrounded by hot, baking concrete, imagine the environment as something pristine and paradisal, like a French impressionist landscape. Eco-activists, even more idealistic in their viewpoint, envision nature as harmoniously balanced and perfect, absent the disruptions and depredations of mankind. Unfortunately, “the environment” is also elephantiasis and guinea worms, anopheles mosquitoes and malaria, starvation-level droughts, AIDS and the Black Plague.

We don’t fantasize about the beauty of these aspects of nature, although they are just as real as their Edenic counterparts. It is because of the existence of such things, of course, that we attempt to modify our surroundings, protecting our children, building cities and transportation systems and growing food and generating power. If Mother Nature wasn’t so hell-bent on our destruction, it would be easier for us to exist in simple harmony with her dictates.

pp. 13-14

Conceptualizing nature romantically is a perfect description of being Blue Pilled. Before MGTOW, we believed that women had no or very loosely defined nature, and were able to love man equally and independently of the influences of her social environment.

Being the rational beings that men are, we advocated for women to have even more access and equality when they asked for it, believing that the centuries of subjugation women endured before our modern comfort was simply due to the selfish “disruptions and depredations of man”.

But then came the family court: Divorce, unbalanced child support and custody, alimony; paternity fraud, false accusations, abortion.

It is because of the existence of these things that us MGTOW men attempt to modify our surroundings, protecting our assets, building wealth and communication systems, growing knowledge and generating personal sovereignty. “If [Female] Nature wasn’t so hell-bent on our destruction, it would be easier for us to exist in simple harmony with her dictates.”

“A lobster needs a safe hiding place to rest, free from predators, and the forces of nature.”

p. 5

Men disperse in a variety of levels of engagement with women after taking the red pill. Many still choose to date and marry and simply avoid the dark alleyways of female nature. MGTOW can still interact with women but explicitly proclaim no marriage and cohabitation. But some men, the MGTOW Monks, go even further, by either replacing relationships with women altogether (through escorts or sex dolls), or living without them through celibacy.

But no matter which way a man chooses, every direction is motivated by self-preservation. I can appreciate advocating men to be informed on female nature and not putting their balls into a vice if they don’t have to. But what I can not agree with is to proceed with life with a constant doubt and fear at the back of the mind because of the things we have learned. I can not agree with living just to live.

Even though they might have been Blue Pill, many men, like soldiers, willingly put their lives on the line for their values, making it possible for them to even fulfill their purpose in spite of their deaths.

A common criticism of MGTOW is that we go to great lengths to preserve our resources but potentially have no legacy to pass down said wealth. Without taking any sacrifices, many accuse MGTOW of practicing hedonism.

But in my world, MGTOW Monk Mode can actually entail the ultimate sacrifice, and is a life no longer lived in fear, but with fight and with purpose.

Basis of Desire

Any man can go around hitting on women… walking around chest puffed out like you’re tough, like you’re the man…but only a select few are so f–in awesome that the women come to them…If I can’t be that guy I don’t deserve to have sex. I won’t accept anything less.

…Chances of failure very high. Chances of success very low…but this challenge sets my soul on fire. I feel like I’m punching the biggest motherf–ker in jail right now…This, to me, is masculine, because this is hard. This is damn near impossible, and I love it. – Chad Marco

OCM Botcast Ep.006

It doesn’t matter if you choose to be celibate or sexually active, the first rule of Monk Mode will simply be to not pursue women.

It’s been said so many times in many different ways.

“Disregard women, acquire currency.”

“First you get the money, then you get the power, then you get the women.” – Scarface

“Give not thy strength unto women, nor thy ways to that which destroyeth kings.” – Proverbs 31:3

Low value men have rationalized the pursuit of women as a male rite of passage and societal imperative. But truthfully there is no achievement in attraction and desire.

One of my favorite concepts introduced by the author Robert Greene is that we are not completely human, but actually animals trying to become human. The rationalization to pursue women is merely the intelligent translation of our genetic evolutionary tactics used to proliferate the human species. Men are biologically designed to be sexually liberal, as just one man could be enough to stabilize and replenish the human population if it were ever in danger, as he can impregnate many women in rapid succession.

So when men realize this desire in them, and act upon it, it’s no different than any other impulsive decision to satisfy a base desire.

“It will render you impulsive, so that you will jump, for example, at any short-term mating opportunities, or any possibilities of pleasure, no matter how sub-par, disgraceful or illegal. If you have high status, on the other hand…You don’t need to grasp impulsively at whatever crumbs come your way, because you can realistically expect good things to remain available. You can delay gratification, without forgoing it forever.”

p. 17

Because many men do shy away from approaching women, many other men will mistakenly believe that pursuing women is indeed “Standing up straight with your shoulders back”, confronting the unknown, and “transforming the chaos of potential into the realities of habitable order.”

However, to use the Taoist Yin (Black/Chaos) and Yang (White/Order) symbology, the white circle on the top of the black snake’s head symbolizes that Chaos has the potential to seek or become order. Therefore, we must allow Chaos, the feminine, to pursue or select.

Because if a man pursues, he is admitting that women are his chaos, the uncertainty, that he must bring to order in his life, as opposed to some other higher purpose. If he is rejected, does he now not descend into disorder? But even if he is accepted, because he has taken upon himself the task to resolve her chaotic nature, she will always serve as the black circle upon his head that has the potential to unravel him into chaos.

Order, then, should for the most part be stable and unchanging. Otherwise, Chaos would not know if it is residing in just a different form of Chaos.

So how do we maintain order? How do we transcend our base instincts?

The Instinct To Fight

[Female lobsters] start hanging around the dominant lobster’s pad, spraying attractive scents and aphrodisiacs toward him, trying to seduce him. His aggression has made him successful, so he’s likely to react in a dominant, irritable manner. Furthermore, he’s large, healthy and powerful. It’s no easy task to switch his attention from fighting to mating.

p.10

Even though I have labeled the pursuit of sex as a base animal instinct, even the prehistoric, lower life-form lobster still does not trivially pursue females, and this is possible because the lobster must always fight.

“Territory matters, and there is little difference between territorial rights and social status. It is often a matter of life and death.”

p. 4

The lobster instinctively knows that if it simply vies for the best possible territory around, it will grant him access to resources, which in turn attracts females. Reproduction is a by-product of his success.

But the human male has forgotten this instinct. In modern times and developed economies, we are raised with all the necessary boxes for survival checked off long ago, so naturally, our ancient biological counter creates an imbalance as it is also expecting sexual access to coincide with the level of health and comfort we have achieved, resulting in men debasing themselves to acquire it.

So the story may end here, for some of you, as the simple answer to this is that men must always fight against hypergamy, the female trait that sexually selects men of equal or higher value. Because feminism has given women increased access to resources and social status, acquiring sex has now become a much more expensive endeavor.

Although it still incurs a cost, some men try to subvert the traditional ways of attracting a mate by learning pick-up or “game“, which I like to say is a complementary or artificial boost to status (which is 1 of the 3 commonly ascribed main attributes a male has to attract women, along with physical “looks” and finances).

It’s interesting, because I noticed that some men would logically deduce they should instead take a hiatus from dating to enter Monk Mode and then return to it once they have settled accounts, in whatever departments that may be. In a way, these men wanted to pursue inner confidence first instead of the brute-force desensitization method pick-up artists employ by constantly approaching women.

The most common critique against Monk Mode was that Gaming needs to be a constant practice, and you will be more likely to revert to being Blue Pill after all that time away from women. After all those days in the desert, you will mistake your first drink for an oasis, and destroy yourself.

I always considered this as simple marketing, of course, because if these men were able to tap into their inner lobsters, they would not need to consume the PUA coach’s content anymore. But now I see it is an entirely possible scenario for those of you men whose stories end here.

But for those of you who want to stay in Wonderland, allow me to offer you an even stronger Red Pill, and show you how deep the rabbit hole goes.

Self-Knowledge

Comment from Relationships Are An Anchor To Your Success – Immortal Mindz

As you can see from the reply count, this comment was quite controversial.

In all the lines before the last one, it’s a clear case of the warning gaming coaches shared about men losing the ability to have boundaries with women after experimenting with Monk Mode . However, the controversy is in the last line.

I need that woman bad, bro.

Bodied.

I chimed in with a more level-headed response though, and simply told OP that even though my one-year celibacy vow ends in three months, it is no longer a matter of needing vs. wanting a woman, but whether I can or cannot have a woman, because I have my purpose.

Will she anchor my success?

Unfortunately, Immortal Mindz does sell a “hope” strategy (the 5% woman is a NAWALT), and so I’m afraid many of his viewers will never find their way.

The reason why the OP felt like he lost himself was because he has not done the work to fully understand that the desire for sex and female companionship is so powerful, that 99% of men are actively or subconsciously constructing a significant portion of their identities based around it. And after it is acquired, whether the relationship results in failure or lasting success, it is unequivocal that he also loses a part of himself along the way.

Sacrifice

To summarize, the first rule is to never pursue women, as man should delegate the selection process to women instead, as females are more emotionally, biologically, and socially invested in reproduction and relationships than men are.

An example for this is the life of a high status male lobster, whom by default does not entertain women and is instead seduced, as he gains access to them as a by-product of maximizing his survival instincts.

After slaying the dragon, the Princess and gold are already there for you. You do not need to seek anything but your goal.

The female lobster is dangerously close to shedding her shell when she attempts to seduce the male lobster, and uses scents and aphrodisiacs to do so. Sounds like a perfumed and provocatively dressed female to me.

To not completely restrict themselves from the pleasures of life, some men will accept these seductions after their success has granted them access to women in this way. From there, some men will discern which of these women are also of high-value before he accepts their invitation, like Immortal Mindz’ 95/5 dynamic.

But the last group of men will either deny, ignore, or avoid the opportunities to be seduced completely. This is not specifically because of some aversion to women, although those men exist. For these men, it is not about gaining access to women, but whether or not women have access to them.

Monk Mode is the most intense yet rewarding path a man can take because it allows him to discover a passion so absorbing of his Being that he is willing to forego food, sex, hygiene, and even friends, family, and reputation for a time, or completely, in order to advance his ultimate desires.

“Freud held the opinion (based on personal experience and observation) that sexual activity was incompatible with the accomplishing of any great work. Since he felt that the great work of creating and establishing psychotherapy was his destiny, he told his wife that they could no longer engage in sexual relations. Indeed from about the age of forty until his death Freud was absolutely celibate “in order to sublimate the libido for creative purposes,” according to his biographer Ernest Jones.”

It is not a matter of aversion, but ascension. When a man’s potential is realized, his path to destiny finalized, even if he has been given a marriage, he will still find himself incompatible with the traditional rules of engagement between men and women.

Einstein fathered two sons and was married for a combined 34 years with two wives, but apparently required strict rules that effectively rendered the wives as his obedient servants. After his first divorce and the death of his second wife, Einstein was nonchalant, publicly expressing feelings of tranquility and living “like a bear in his den.”

Source: https://www.apost.com/en/blog/einsteins-brutal-rules-for-his-wife-that-disgust-women-today/6946/

Speaking of living like animals, the relationship between lobsters is not very far off.

“Afterward, the female hangs around, and hardens up for a couple of weeks (another phenomenon not entirely unknown among human beings). At her leisure, she returns to her own domicile, laden with fertilized eggs.”

pp. 10-11

A man only considers, and later succeeds at, living in Monk Mode when he fully internalizes his perception that because of his talent or acquired knowledge, he may not be able to lead a common life.

The deeper he is involved in Monk Mode, the more the matters of the material and biological processes slowly begin to drift away from him, as he progressively becomes no longer a man but a mere vessel for his talent.

The decision to not pursue women for the man in monk Mode is unnecessary, because they instead pursue him, or is a necessity, to preserve the time needed to advance his goals.

Therefore, this rule is not a commandment, one that men should pressure themselves to follow, but is merely an observation.

You are neither inadequate nor excellent for your pursuit or abstinence from women. This is simply a matter of finding the full extent of our self-expression.

After all, the lobster does not consider any of these things. He is successful solely from the superb synchrony of his instincts.

But living as a human, for better or worse, we have developed norms and habits that are outside of our instincts. With so many influences, we don’t know our true individual natures.

Monk Mode is simply the way for man to re-discover himself, within himself.

“A lobster needs a safe hiding place to rest, free from predators, and the forces of nature.”

“The body [and mind], with its various parts, needs to function like a well-rehearsed orchestra. Every system must play its role properly, and at exactly the right time, or noise and chaos ensue. It is for this reason that routine [and Monk Mode] is so necessary. The acts of life we repeat every day need to be automatized. They must be turned into stable and reliable habits, so they lose their complexity and gain predictability and simplicity.”

pp. 5, 18

To get started, don’t commit to anything, but simply ask “Who am I without women?”, and if you want to know for certain, “What will happen if I give them up for a year?”. Meditate on these matters.

And I will not see you on the Far Side, but next week Sunday at 12PM, every week for the rest of this series.

Responding to Comments – Celebrating 20 Videos Published

Back at it again with another milestone, another review of comments.

First off, let’s get all the bullshit out of the way. THE FUCKING SPAMMERS

The first bot spotted was Logan. Then, Bananarama gassed me up on the Third Act Freestyle video I did, but this one I actually fell for since I was a bit excited about releasing that particular video. But after I replied, I was suspicious about the profile, and I confirmed it was a spam comment to draw me to their channel and watch their Fortnite videos.

The next day, Liam attempted to do the same, and I knew it was spam because it was an instant comment as soon as I uploaded the video.

Then, I started browsing around YouTube like usual, and managed to find Liam again, but now there was a slightly different banana account, but repeating the same line. The uploader was completely fooled.

Finally, this morning, a third banana account has appeared. This one was actually directly feeding into a different channel completely. Also, I decided to check back on the original Bananarama comment, and now, the username is “Caria“, feeding into the same channel that Bobbette is being used for. WHAT THE HECK??

I’m not sure if I should expose them so other people could know, or just block/ignore them. It’s only slightly interesting because it’s a bit of a recent turn of events.

Alright, no more robots. On to comments from real people!

A Little More Housekeeping

Another reminder that you must keep the language clean and not post more than one link in the comments on YouTube or else your comment will automatically be hidden by YouTube’s quality bot.

Sh*t Talkers

Perfect that Smart Halayla is back, because he was the smart one that actually posted too many links and is being referred to in the previous comment for having his content was hidden.

Many are parroting this idea that we all need to unite against feminism. This is simply just a marketing tool for PUAs to prevent the manosphere from raising their standards, trashing their content, and going MGTOW. PUAs/Red Pill benefit from feminism because they encourage men to engage with sexually liberated women. What do you think “spinning plates” is after all?

Allow me to clue you in even further. Men are and always will be in power. Feminism only exists because men shared their power with women. As soon as that stops, feminism will die. So, I am free to be superior to every other man if I want to, because that has nothing to do with how we interact with women.

Lastly, if you look at the chart below, you”ll see why MGTOW is above Red Pill, literally, as the latter’s philosophy doesn’t go past level 2. End of discussion.


Next, we have an odd picture from Triggered Deplorable, who got triggered by my thumbnail photo for my Kim and Kanye Are Like Bulma and Vegeta video. Apparently, Kanye developed this image himself for his “stronger” video.

No Fap

The first two comments are responses to my 5 Tips For Starting and Thriving on No Fap post on Publish0x.

I’ve heard great reviews of that book recommended by walkonwayvs. One of the rules that stood out to me was “live as if your father is dead.”

I’m very thankful to Atalosgaia for responding to Cameronomnia, because as you know on this channel we always take a reason and logic-based approach.

That said, I met Saiyan MGTOW in the comments on a video from the Sexual Kung Fu channel, and he has a lot of spiritual content. Saiyan MGTOW also makes content. And speaking of #protectyourpower

Protect Your Manhood is my favorite Itachi MGTOW video.

And doubling back to Saiyans, these are some comments for my Life & Fitness Lesson From Vegeta’s First Time Super Saiyan blog post. In short, the post was about how I was using anger to power my workouts, and I reached a break point, just like Vegeta did when his training almost got him killed, and let go of it all and entered a flow state.

For Aerials comment, If I’m being motivated by a negative emotion, it is most likely dissatisfaction. I’m starting to become exhausted by rage, and it’s much easier to just detach from it. That’s why I’m not experiencing many of the “Red Pill Rage” symptoms because I just detached and went Monk Mode. That said, I did watch Chad Marco’s recent podcast about the Female Dating Strategy sub-reddit, and it definitely confirmed that the rage is still there. But the only solution I have for that right now is more Monk Mode!

For Atalosgaia, I agree and think “letting go” should be a by-product of acceptance, because if one tries to let go consciously, they usually approach it as if they are performing this non-violent act of allowing it to pass, but truthfully, by labeling it, you are in conflict with yourself.

Funny Comments

Publish7 lightens up my Functional Nihilism and Creative Hedonism post with a comment about filling holes. Well, a hole needs to be filled for you to be conceived, you need to fill a hole with food and water to survive, and you fill a hole in the ground when you die. I guess he’s right.

Bonus commentary on wildTurtle’s comment, my favorite song from Adele is “Chasing Pavements”

The Amazon Gift Card Giveaway

In my last celebration article, I specifically hoped for Philskie1 to still be around, and he came in clutch, not even concerned about the giveaway, but just supporting me for my videos, as always. I really appreciate this guy haha. Thanks!

And secondly we have mgtow lucid dream, whom I will admit is my favorite YouTube viewer, mostly for his sick username, and his profile pic is hilarious. But as for his message, Monk Mode is a beautiful and vastly overlooked way of life. So many MGTOW talk about it, but I want to be the one to actually show what it looks like, especially from the perspective as a younger man, as most of these guys happy to be done with women probably have declining testosterone due to age to thank for that. But I still have my lightning rod, and that’s why I think it’s imperative that I make content about my experience, reasoning, and results on this path.

Thanks for your support, friend.

For Study_Guide‘s comment, I did not really intend for this giveaway to actually increase my subscriber count. It was only at the last minute when I had to add in tags that I realized it could have this effect. Because of it, my YouTube subscriber count has now surpassed BitChute.

For the next two comments, well, they said they want to enter, but they never did, probably thinking just subscribing and commenting will get them a ticket. So far, only Owlz has a valid entry. (Update: Internet Funny Man has finally entered). After this article is published, I will begin recording it, so the giveaway will end a day or two after this. So there should still be some time if you’re reading this fresh. GIVEAWAY DETAILS HERE: https://moonbasemgtow.com/2020/05/26/20-amazon-card-giveaway-celebrating-20-videos-published/

Content Creators

Unfortunately for rhythmbhardwaj9, his comment came after all those false-entries (and earlier spam comments), and so I wasn’t entirely trusting that he actually thought my Virtue of Youth post was insightful. I’m sorry bro, but I’m not going to check out your work right now, and your profile pic looks like it belongs in Majora’s Mask LOL.

Gabriel Bradley is thinking about adding his own perspective to the 80/20 Dating Rule. I’m always going to encourage others to make content. As for my own content, the message is superb, but the quality needs work. However, the person that inspired me the most to make content was someone with far worse quality than mine. No shade, but shout outs to you, Alkaline Bodybuilding Finance.

We can get paralyzed when we see high quality content, and think we can never replicate it. Sometimes we need something approachable to get the ball rolling. I only started making serious efforts for my fiction writing after reading the Scott Pilgrim books for this very reason (I think the movie is better).

It’s strange, because I’m actually a perfectionist, but I just don’t have the time to invest in perfecting the quality of my videos for now, so in the meantime, I hope it’s approachable enough for new users to be inspired to take a crack at it themselves.

Content Previews

I also rushed my Third Act freestyle video as well, but luckily, Atalosgaia has some advice for me on future music production.

I’m planning on releasing a lot more music soon. They will just be covers for now until I do get the hardware to handle production apps, so hopefully I can at least perfect vocal recording so the tracks can be decent. I am going to show off some of my singing in the next one, and I will put way more effort than I did on Third Act, especially because the lyrics are more tame so I won’t feel embarrassed about recording it in my full house right now as we are still in quarantine. I’m recording all my videos in a fucking closet to block the sound travel haha.

I might make a health update on this, but if not, I can just tell you now that I’ve been doing an alternate day fasting challenge, and today is Day 6. I’ve tried it out before but I’m way more disciplined now, and I might consider adding in dry fasting again as well, since there is just two more days of fasting for the challenge to be over.

So far, I have noticed that I’ve gotten way more full of the meals I used to eat, and drinking less water, so my new baseline is actually saving me money. I ate 1,660 calories yesterday, but that’s not quite the sweet spot yet. I also think I’ve made significant progress on the recession of my Candida symptoms, so hopefully that will be the main focus of my next update if it’s finally cleared. Stay tuned.

Bonus Comments

This was not on any of my videos, but just comments I found elsewhere. I just want to highlight this because I’ve always experienced great aversions to things that are mainstream, and naturally gravitate towards niches. YouTube comments are starting to become predictable on popular videos. To make matters worse, YouTube keeps recommending old videos to everyone, and the comments are fully aware of this as well. YouTube is just becoming robotic and inauthentic.

I was around in ’05/’06. Why did we get rid of video responses? That’s still such a dope feature to me. YouTube sucks. But right now, it’s library can’t be replicated.

Fin

I would like to make more videos, especially since I’m finally about to start getting into my more hard-hitting stuff. However, my draft list is starting to fill up, and I am starting a new series: The 12 Rules for (Monk Mode) Life, in which I will be remixing Jordan Peterson’s book one chapter a week starting this Friday, as I will have exactly 12 weeks left of my One Year Celibacy vow. It’s the perfect way to finish strong, review all that I’ve learned, and advance to new heights if my Monk Mode is extended. You don’t want to miss out.

41 Articles Celebration: Responding To Comments!

It’s that time again!

I now have a total of five platforms I publish my content on, so that’s five times the chance for more comments. I’ll be shouting out and responding to all of them here, even if I replied already. I’ll also provide some extra backstory to some of the articles referenced here as well, so you’re not just scrolling through everyone just to get to yours.

Let’s go.

Simple Comments

First thing’s first, got to shout out Philskie1. He was the first comment right after my 10 Videos, 25 Articles celebration video, and then he came back to hype me up on Fears of Leaving Monk Mode. I haven’t published any videos since last month, and I’m not happy about that, so now that I’m at 41 articles, I think I’ll make a better effort to also catch my videos up in number.

I’ll be back soon, and I hope you’re still around! Thank you Philskie1.

Primalties liked my Minimalism and Mental Mobility video, and so did Brian K Leaks. Maybe I should have asked why they were so intrigued and thankful for the video. I hope you guys see this and let me know! Thank you.

Funny Comments

WHY ARE YOU AN IDIOT left me a very beautiful poem on my Only Dating For Status video. I’m quite speechless from it actually, thank you.

I think Smart Halaya is another one of those types that comment without actually watching the video, which sucks because Is There More To Life? is one of my favorite videos!

But anyway, he did leave some pretty funny clips about how Muslim husbands keep their wives in check and how Islam supports it. Also, the censorship isn’t malicious in this case, I think it’s fair for the algorithm to be suspicious of comments containing too many links. Be mindful of that guys! Thanks.

Article Comments

Most of my comments come from my video channels, so before I get to them I’d like to highlight some feedback from my blog sites since we are celebrating the progress made there after all. These comments are from Publish0x, a new blogging website that pays you in crypto for reading and writing articles! I’ve been backing up all my content there, and slightly revising the stories as I go.

Two Questions To End Old Habits

Yep, I don’t think kids will be able to look that far into the future as I advise. (What is the end goal of this action?). The only problem I have with kids playing video games nowadays is that iPads and phones give off too much EMF radiation. I at least grew up with brothers, so we were able to play with toys or make-believe if we didn’t play any vidya, but with the low birth rate we have these days there are lots of kids growing up alone, and that’s kind of boring.

I did play way too many video games when I was younger though. In middle school, I played so much Monster Hunter in gym class, my school was shocked when I was on the winning relay race team that won us a trophy. Then I got XBox Live in high school, and I didn’t even learn how to play basketball until after I got kicked out of college.

If I could go back though, I would still keep the games, but cut back on academics and increase sports. Being valedictorian was pretty good, but honestly I could have been a track-and-field star and have gone to a good college on scholarship anyway.

Game design and fiction is all I have now. I hope I can be a genius in that field too, otherwise, I’ve completely squandered my life and am supremely fucked! Haha!

Thank you Aerials.

It’s Harder To Come Out As Bisexual Rather Than Gay

It’s funny how Snarfy thought no one would reply. I should be having that fear! This article actually got two downvotes, so I’m the one who needs to be thankful.

Who knows how far back the LGBT goes in history and evolution, but if we do live in a sick society today because it’s so prevalent now, I would at least like LGBT to be treated as a symptom of society’s said sickness, rather than a cause for it. Also, I’m sure these pro-natal religious breeders have never considered the exponential growth of the human population. That’s the real sickness. I don’t think many people realize they should be grateful some people are pairing off into genetic dead ends.

Thanks again, Snarfy.

Why I Quit Medium.com And Think The Site Will Die

My most upvoted and most tipped story on Publish0x!

I honestly could have made a go-of-it on Medium. Two of my articles actually got over 3-5k views. But the site was just becoming a dumpster fire. One of the last writers I followed knew it was just a numbers game and would publish multiple times a day, recycling a lot of content.

I also never mentioned the political bias on that website (obviously social justice left-leaning folks there), and that’s another tell tale for the longevity of the website. But the Attention-Based approach I have here on my site with the Brave Browser and on Publish0x is the way of the future anyway.

I hated the subscription feature on Medium from the start. Thanks woodenwookie.

Stand Alone Comments

There was a misunderstanding here, as all my uploads on MGTOW.tv were accidentally behind a paywall. It was pretty cool for him to call me out for it and show some curiosity on what I had to offer because it let me know about that problem, so I really appreciate this one here.

My content should always be free, but I do have some ideas for crowdfunded content in the future. In the meantime though, if you ever have a topic you would like me to cover in both article and video format, you may kindly buy me a coffee at Ko-fi.com.

Buy Me a Coffee at ko-fi.com

The standard price is now $9, but hey, people pay more for about 30 seconds on the TFM show, so I think it doesn’t hurt to ask. It’s only there for the people that really love me anyway, and extra sweat and research will go into any commissioned work.

Anyway, thank you SentientVerity!

Well, I don’t know much about the crimes of Warren Buffet, and should ask to be enlightened on that matter. He can’t be worse than George Soros, right?

Speaking of enlightenment, I too have some thoughts on nihilism and this pandemic.

Sneak Peek: I think the article will be called On The Surface of the Soul, which was teased in my last article as well. But I think I’ll write it after this whole thing blows over. I hate bandwagons.

Thank you BlackPilledBeltMonkkido

I too love helping people, maybe too much, actually. People should really be careful about telling me their goals, because I would actually be there to help them and make sure they see it through.

Working in food and retail killed any chance of me becoming a simp though. In some places, only the men were required to work the stock room, and yet the women would get the same pay as us. A supermarket I worked at was quite egalitarian though, and I always reminded the women anytime they wanted me to do a “favor” for them (aka, their work) that we had equal pay.

By the way, I like Blue Moon and Guinness personally, but I can say Natural Ice and Golden Monkey are two beers that have hurt me haha. Thank you VulcanCannon!

*Rubs hands* Okay!

TFM was the man that got me into MGTOW, actually, after his episode on the Red Man Group (which I was a fan of at the time). I couldn’t argue against his logic and have been going my own way ever since. Months later, the Red Man Group started shaming men with sex dolls, and didn’t even have the balls to invite TFM again. Truly a pathetic group.

I’m no TFM fanboy though. It seems like he keeps repeating himself because he produces so much content, along with Sandman. I personally enjoy Sandman because he can see the future, literally with his pre-cognitive dreaming, but also because he’s always theorizing about the next trends, and he got me on the Brave Browser, which has worked out well.

I’ve checked the archives here and there on that MGTOW Mount Rushmore you mentioned. I still actively watch Stardusk but he’s a bit long-winded sometimes. My favorite MGTOW today are Happy Humble Hermit, Renegade #1, Ronin Man (wild card) and Red Pill on Steroids. RIP Kurama/Itachi Reloaded

Thanks OldWolf207.

Yes, I agree. My MGTOW way is to make every effort to keep yourself unbound. Self-sufficiency is one of the ultimate goods.

Thank you mgtow lucid dream. Dope username.

And Speaking of MGTOW is freedom….

Big John

Mr X. calls Big John a cheap suit, and BlackPilledBeltMonkkido says John is a Champion of MGTOW. Interesting.

Honestly, I never really watched any of Big John’s content, I just used that one segment for my arguement against Rollo Tomassi’s article. But I think Mr. X is another guy who comments without actually watching the video though.

SilentVerity is back with a very sobering speech on the state of affairs in the manosphere. I never understood why Rollo Tomassi and the RMG would rag on RSD. I suppose it’s just marketing on their end, but to us MGTOW, there’s no difference between them. Even before I was MGTOW I started to notice that there were a few guys in these groups that were logical and wanted a simple life, and these PUA teachers are setting them up for consumerism and sex addiction, and nowadays, divorce and false rape accusations.

No thanks.

We’re going our own way. Thanks guys.

Productivity

I’ve got a treat for you guys. I managed to get mindrapeart to divulge all his resources and routines to pull off the 10+ hours of work he claims to complete daily.

Personally though, I realized I don’t want the extra edge that badly. I feel like any performance enhancements is just stealing from your own body in some way. I’d much rather try to cultivate a force from within, David Goggins style.

I worked nearly seven hours straight today, and it’s been quite satisfying constantly evaluating my progress and finally developing a strategy that keeps me working for so long, and I’m getting better everyday. But, the advice is here for all of you if you want to try-hard it.

mgtow is monk and I have some career goals in common, but I’m really unsure if I will return to college. That said, I think I’m leaning more towards the higher salary jobs now, since we can apparently retire on $200k in south east asia, I might as well take the fastest track to getting to that. But I don’t qualify for financial aid so, it’s doubtful. I might at least try to finish my associates and call it a night.

Thanks guys.

No Fap and Semen Retention

I believe it’s Day 81 on No Fap right now, and Day 36 for my sub-streak of No Porn. Hope you’re doing well Zeal.

Also, Crazy Diamond has come to the same realizations I have, that despite the incredible draw from our sex drive, there is still a deeper dissatisfaction within us that doesn’t allow us to control it. I too have experienced the over-consumption of other vices to cover up my desire to watch naked bodies slamming together.

But now, my sensual dispositions are so much clearer to me. I hope you’ve read Into The Depths of Desire – Dry Fasting + No Fap Hard Mode/Monk to get the full scoop.

You’ve made it this far, so you deserve my real secrets. The deepest red pills I could gather from my fellow companions here.

I demonstrate to X-51 that I only arrive to my esoteric beliefs through logical reasoning. I’ve already left one fairy tale religion, I’m not just going to switch factions.

But we end the responses with Aerials comment, which backs me up and even offers the female perspective on the practice. It was really validating to see this, because this practice is so esoteric, it’s just nice to see another person outside of the circles I study in also confirm that I’m not completely insane for following it. So thank you, Aerials.

Waking Up To The Wasteland – Fallout 4 And MGTOW In The Modern Day

At the beginning of Fallout 4, your main character and his wife and child are fortunately spared from a nuclear attack by gaining last-minute entrance into a vault, and are then placed under cryogenic sleep until the all-clear signal above ground. However, your character wakes up to an actual nightmare as he not only witnesses his child being kidnapped, but his wife also being murdered, with no ability to stop it as he watches from his pod.

This ordeal is the same for the formerly asleep blue pill man who wakes up to the reality and necessity of MGTOW: Your children can be taken and used against you through custody and child support laws, and feminism has killed the home-maker wife archetype men of previous ages enjoyed.

In Fallout 4, it was a vault scientist that allowed the kidnapper and murderer in your midst while you slept. And so has The State, slowly chipping away at the everyday rights and interests of man in favor of the now much larger female voter class.

Unlike Fallout, where all of civilization flips on its head in an instant after the bomb was dropped, our civilization has been in a much slower decay, which has confused society to what exactly is the cause of it’s deterioration, especially since remnants of our former peaks still linger.

In Fallout, their culture had been permanently frozen in the 1950’s up until the war (year 2077), and so is the mindset of the Blue Pill man who is still clinging on to the wife-and-kids dreams of old.

That dream has been dead for a long time for the average man, but without anything being as conclusive as a bomb drop, they will venture out into the wasteland never knowing the difference.

Out Of The Vault And Into The Wasteland

The Vault is a symbol for the transformation process a man undergoes after taking the Red Pill. His old life has been completely destroyed, and the new one waiting for him above ground is so detached from anything he used to understand. There are completely new rules, new enemies, and new goals in the wasteland now.

Some men don’t even make it out of the Vault though. The sole survivor in Fallout 4 finds a pistol on a desk. The game doesn’t let you decide, but realistically, a man in that situation, with everything he loved and the life he built taken away from him, would be faced with the hard decision of using the gun either on himself, or as a tool to keep moving forward.

Men taking the Red Pill also face this scenario, experiencing a similar loss, whether directly, through the court system, or indirectly, by acknowledging the risks involved making the juice not worth the squeeze.

In the Blue Pill paradigm, being a family man is the greatest story ever told, and the men who can’t get out of the depression phase are the ones that found their stories too difficult to re-write.

But getting out of the Vault is only half the battle. The Red Pill and the wasteland is a new world which requires a new personality. Some men retain their dignity, but many others remain in the Red Pill Rage phase. These are the Raiders or Bad Karma players in Fallout, uninterested in rebuilding their happiness on their own, and instead depend on taking it away from others to survive.

It’s this group of men that give MGTOW a bad name. They claim to have gone their own way, yet the majority of their time is not spent on themselves but on bashing the men and women not congruent to their paradigm.

But it’s hard to blame them. After all, nature has mutated and irradiated out in the wasteland. Because of feminism, the modern woman is now radioactive. MGTOW and Red Pill knowledge are like the Rad-X and Rad-Away products in the game that protect you from radiation poisoning.

But the Blue Pill man will notice nothing wrong about his current situation. He will feel sick and not know why while salvaging what he can from the wasteland. Meanwhile, as a MGTOW, your Geiger-counter will be off the charts, mitigating or avoiding the dangers altogether.

The New Currency

In Fallout, wads of dollar bills are now just a novelty item, as commerce is now conducted through bottle caps. For the MGTOW out in the wasteland of modernity, his new currency is freedom (of time and space).

You see, freedom was a commodity that the Blue Pill man was willing to trade in order to acquire a family. But when the bomb is dropped on him, genuine fiat currency is also no longer viable, as half of it is taken through divorce and then further stolen from him in installments for alimony and child support. If he’s still standing, however, he’ll have the opportunity to rebuild himself using the new currency mentioned above.

The men who struggle to self-actualize as MGTOW are the ones who still have not adopted this new market and currency, fueling their belief of dearth and destitution. Yes, the wasteland won’t offer the previous forms of entertainment you once enjoyed, but in return it offers you clarity, as one can now view human existence in its truest form.

In Fallout, daily life is reduced to its essentials, and likewise, as a man living on his own, he naturally becomes a minimalist. Bachelorhood does protect you from the frivolous spending habits of a wife and children. But going further from this, not needing female validation will extend to disassociating from all forms of validation. The money you spend, the time you spend, the space you require and the responsibilities you are assigned are now completely genuine and solely derived from you, and not compromised from the various influences you once suffered living in the Blue Pill world.

You become successful in the wasteland as soon as you realize that what you once owned was just baggage, and what you sought after was illusion. Requiring less to live, and a much narrower focus (yourself) gives you more access to the truth, knowledge of self, and the real happiness of life.

This inspiration for this article. I first considered writing about Fallout 4 from a game design perspective, but now I see there’s a real fun and challenge to see MGTOW in all things.

Play On The Hardest Difficulty – MGTOW, No Fap and Semen Retention

A tactic I use to get the most fun out of video games these days is to simply play the game on its hardest difficulty.

It’s the fastest way to getting good at the game, and only requires one play through, as opposed to going through the normal difficulty first just to learn the ropes.

This also reflects the two ways that men become MGTOW. Many played the game on Easy Mode and followed the Blue Pill strategy guide only to get a “Game Over” screen after a divorce or some other betrayal by their former lover. Now they have to start a New Game, but potentially with over half of their finances cut, along with children to support (and you know how much we hate escort missions!). Is that the type of game you want to play?

The other way to join MGTOW is to instead front load all the difficulty at the beginning by crushing all of the hopes and dreams you initially had for your future through reasoning that the safest and most optimal outcome for your life requires you to alter or avoid relationships with women and the prospects of parenthood.

But no matter the method for getting through the Red Pill to MGTOW, somewhere along the way, it’s going to hurt.

“The sole and supreme use of suffering is to purify, to burn out all that is useless and impure. Suffering ceases for him who is pure.” – James Allen, As A Man Thinketh

Life on Hard Mode

Ronin Man, one of my favorite MGTOWs, recently published a video critiquing the practice of No-Fap, and he asked a very hard hitting question on whether guys on no fap or other retaining practices appear “peaceful.” I responded:

“It’s not about peace. It’s about self-knowledge, self-sufficiency, and self-mastery.”

It’s such a great question because the context is absolutely true. I will admit to you that I am not at all peaceful. But then again, has any of the work since taking the Red Pill been peaceful? It is an incredibly difficult task to tear down your former beliefs and personality to rebuild yourself entirely from a new core.

The goal was never peace. It’s why we took the Red Pill to begin with. We didn’t want the blissfully ignorant dream that ends in waking to a nightmare. No, we wanted the cold hard truth.

The Game That I’m Playing

One of my core hypotheses is that we function as Organic Intelligence Programs, referring to the plasticity of our brains and personalities, suggesting that with enough tinkering, we can be reprogrammed.

Of course, the body itself has its own vast intelligence. It’s our HP bar with natural strength, agility, constitution, etc. But for the majority of humans, the body has been running the entire game.

For instance, let’s take its desire for genetic reproduction, and the institutions of love, marriage, family, and even religion, that our intelligence programs have created to protect that imperative. You take the Red Pill when you deprogram yourself from this basic operating system.

Since a few months ago, I have been asking myself “Is There More To Life Than Just Food and Sex?”, and so the exact parameters of this game that I’m playing has been to closely control and/or monitor my behavior with my No Fap/Semen Retention practice as well as my Keto/Fasting Diet.

It’s not like I was ever an over consumer on any of the things I’m currently fasting from either. I just need to satisfy this incessant curiosity to know if there truly is something greater on the other side.

We play games to be challenged, and I’ve organized my life so far to do exactly this. I honestly would not recommend someone focusing on taming both their food and sex drives at once like I am, but like I said, the hardest difficulty encourages the most growth at the fastest rate.

Changing Class Systems

Changing my Character class is another fun thing to do to extend the play time of a game for a second run, where I would create a new character with a completely different play style. For example, the first play could have been a very vanilla, goody-two-shoes soldier archetype, but I might choose a stealthy, squirmy ranger/scoundrel for the second play through.

TFM also had a great rant on No Fap recently as well, specifically highlighting his frustration with the practice and the common occurrence of wet dreams at the end of each month. This is by far the most common wall No Fap practitioners hit during their practice.

Ironically, it disproves one of Ronin Man’s points against No Fap, that the practice is “shutting down the pipes”, which is clearly untrue if they force themselves open every now and then.

But going back to hitting the wall of wet dreams (yikes), it truly is the point in which all pivots are made on No Fap. First off, there is disagreement on whether experiencing one counts against your streak or not. This is where men decide to either continue their training at the school of Semen Retention, or to remain as just a strictly Non-PMO organization (No Porn Masturbation Orgasm).

The decision is usually guided by whether or not the practitioner is more invested in either the biological or psychological effects on No Fap. I was personally more uncomfortable with wet dreams and wanted to figure out how to stop them, and that’s what made me pursue semen retention.

However, other men suffer from a psychological drain from watching porn, and are more interested in developing healthier sex habits. The stages of which these men will set up camp outside the wall ranges from something like masturbating for a maximum of once per week only using their imagination, to no masturbation at all with release only allowed with a partner.

“Continue? Insert Coin.”

TFM couldn’t get over the wall, and so he found Celestina, his sex doll waifu, and is currently living happily ever after until her next upgrade.

But I’m not without my faults. I’ve written about my recent PMO relapse (Losing My Compass – Relapse, Desire, and Dissatisfaction on No Fap), and have also begun questioning if long-term practice is right for me.

Since then I decided to play on a harder difficulty, and this time completely cut out indulging in any pornographic or sexually stimulating content as well. Yeah, that even includes avoiding a lot of racy click-bait as well. However, I only made it to 28 days on that avenue, and contemplated on admitting I got a “Game Over” once again.

But the game wasn’t over. Not even close.

This whole time, running in the background, my semen retention streak counter has reached 45 days! I made it over the wall!

It was like I was trying to fill up my special move bar and got upset that I missed the opportunity for a flashy finish. I wanted to reset the entire game just because I ranked up an ability in a skill tree path that’s a bit outside of my class archetype.

Role Playing

Role Playing is another tool I use to spice things up if I’m no longer interested in a standard play through.

In Monster Hunter, I made a female character who is only allowed to use light weapons. In Fallout 4, I didn’t pick up any loot when I first started until it made narrative sense to start collecting junk and eating meat from the irradiated animals.

I was doing the same with No-Fap. I can’t say my 12 years of watching porn hasn’t altered my sexual interests. Unfortunately, my belief in the brain’s plasticity has backfired on me. I believe I’ve been reprogrammed towards a certain sexual interest and want to see if there’s a possibility to return to original factory settings.

Man, that’s one hell of a side quest. And this is exactly why I say I give out “Red Pills that are out of this world.” I’m willing to believe and experiment on very esoteric practices.

I shouldn’t be watching porn anyway, because it could end up interfering with my progress on semen retention. But I just want to clarify how I’m tweaking my difficulty settings on No Fap.

I’m running two simultaneous counters: one for semen retention, and another for No-PMO, where an infraction on any of the letters in the acronym results in a reset for that counter.

Min Maxing

Min Maxing is a character building strategy used in RPG games in which a player sacrifices (minimizes) growth in certain stat blocks in order to emphasize (maximizing) their strengths to produce overwhelming effects compared to more balanced characters.

In my opinion, this is MGTOW. We’ve ceased putting points into the marriage/dating/society skill trees, and are completely invested into other areas of personal development.

Sometimes, the game can feel like it’s really hard, but that’s because we still don’t understand how to play with this new class archetype. Some men want to dual class with having a girlfriend without marrying, or go purple pill. Others go full monk, or sub-class with pump and dump, etc.

When we experience hardships during our transformation into the MGTOW lifestyle, we must consider what our characters will look like at max level. The Blue Piller chose the easy path with the standard ending, only if he can somehow avoid the final boss (divorce rape). But going MGTOW is like getting the DLC expansion pack; new maps, skills, and alternate endings.

But those first few levels on MGTOW mode are brutal. Absolutely brutal. For a while it felt like you were just spinning your wheels, replaying the same level over and over again (red pill rage) while the Blue Pill men were leveling up.

But the true sweetness that is earned from a play through on these sorts of games on the highest difficulty is not just the satisfaction in taking the road less traveled, but taking the challenging task so difficult that it forces you to improve to levels beyond what was previously foreseeable.

Effectively, the game itself begins to disappear, because victory for any man who goes his own way is ultimate and imminent. You begin to realize the true battle was always between you and your former self, and any of your perceived limitations.

This is what playing on Hard Mode is, and this is what it takes to become a Champion.

MGTOW Is Not The Means, But The End (Immortal Mindz Response)

The following article is a series of responses to a comment chain found from this video:

Of all the MGTOW videos in my favorites playlist, I feature Immortal Mindz (AKA Soul Immortal) the most.

The man is a wizard of the mind, a monk mode expert, and esoteric philosopher. I think very few other MGTOW will be able to comprehend or convey the significance of walking the solitary path. Soul once compared it to Santiago leaving Fatima in The Alchemist.

But to Soul, Monk Mode is only a temporary journey. While I don’t believe he will ever re-marry, he has created a potential blind spot for future dating with his 95/5 categorization of women.

This “virtuous woman” (aka NAWALT) occupies 5% of the total female population. However, he has stated that in modern times, the actual population the average man has access to is at or below 1% , as the other women in the 5% category currently belong to mostly isolated communities like the Amish, African Tribes, the Nunnery, etc.

Since the beginning, Soul has always been a believer in “raising one’s vibration” and Positive Thinking, and he claims that as soon as he spoke his 95/5 theory into existence, he suddenly began to see more of these favorable women appear in his life.

Now here’s the danger. Soul could very well be a Monk for the rest of his life, so he can simply observe and spout these theories without any harm to himself, and even if he leaves Monk Mode, he still has a wealth of experience to draw from, but his followers might not share the same level of sophistication. Men very early in their stages of rebuilding during the MGTOW Red Pill may cling towards any rationalization they can to keep women on a pedestal and never go down the lone road of the Monk.

Last year he made a new YouTube channel, and since then, more women and purple pill men have been occupying the comments section. I salute the man, but Iron Sharpeneth Iron, as he said, and so I must deem that his space is no longer a MGTOW refuge.

The Comment Chain

Charl was among other MGTOW men still stuck in the red-pill rage phase, and cases like him are why I decided to make MGTOW content, because there is a great lack of Monk Mode content available for those men to envision a productive path forward.

General MGTOW does do incredibly well with enlightening men on the pitfalls of dating and relationships, but it’s Monk Mode MGTOW that illuminates the path of self-actualization that comes after that.

If Charl had followed people within my circle, he would have learned that after taking the Red Pill, the best thing to look forward to is yourself, your own freedom, and the new possibilities for growth within your character.

Stranahan was correct to say that Charl is in the beginning stage of Red Pill, specifically the bargaining phase of the grief cycle, and needs to work on self-love because even though he has a desire for self-improvement, his focus is still outward on finding this 5% NAWALT.

The method he is employing to find her is also questionable, and it’s the exact sort of Positive Thinking tactics I said Immortal Mindz’ followers would find themselves in trouble with.

Soul did develop the 95/5 concept from the observations of healthier relationships from older men and women and combining it with his own experience, but Soul himself is of an older generation.

For the younger guys, this <1% NAWALT population is shrinking by the day.

Listen, I’ve read As A Man Thinketh. I absolutely love the quote “Man does not attract that which he wants, he attracts that which he is.” However, I don’t think it applies when you are trying to attract people, because people have much more personal agency than to be treated like objects in this way, and besides that, there is no guarantee that when you raise your vibration you won’t end up attracting the wrong type of people in your direction that may want to steal energy from you instead of building on it.

Soul has always said that women are never meant to be pursued, only attracted. But if a man enters cocoon mode for the sole intent of later attracting a worthy mate, I will go as far to say that his pursuit of women has never ended; It remained as a spiritual longing even though it temporarily ceased in the physical.

Even when told of the possibilities of a fulfilling life outside of relationships, Charl’s response still revolves around women. His future depends on the quality of women available, and not solely on the quality of man he wants to become. This is the key difference between all the shades of blue and red pill, and the man that has decided to go monk.

This is why I say MGTOW is above Red Pill.

Red Pill is simply the knowledge of female nature, but MGTOW is about your own nature, possibly extending to all of nature, and the road to mastering it.


You don’t have to be celibate to be considered MGTOW. We’re not in the business of denying men of their comforts and privileges; we’re about maximizing personal freedom. Some of us men have realized that relationships with women could be a compromise to that freedom. It has absolutely nothing to do with having the strength or weakness to engage with women.

There is absolutely nothing pathetic about a formerly married man admitting that after his divorce and finding MGTOW, he has had his fill with women and now wants to move on to living a solitary life. I can’t even begin to describe how distorted your views must be look down on a man like this. Even if you meant for this label to only be extended to never-married men, it’s still wrong to associate a man’s self worth to his relations with women.

It was at this point that I decided to contribute to the discussion, and specifically call out the 95/5 as yet another fancy packaging for the NAWALT blue pill.

The reasons I wanted him to reply specifically after he moved in with his unicorn were because:

  1. That’s what I expect a Blue Pill man to do.
  2. I suspected he hasn’t found his 5% yet; it was food for thought.

Men and women are fundamentally different, and that’s why I implied there will be some level of maintenance, which can also extend to compromise. It’s called a sexual marketplace for a reason, for the fact that it denotes the interactions of men and women are always involving some form of exchange.

It’s just economics. No amount of positive thinking is going to change the fact that we live in a world of limited resources. Your time, freedom, and youth, are all limited resources. Everything has an opportunity cost.

I will close with wise words from Immortal Mindz:

Many of these men who are letting go of MGTOW will unfortunately be returning to just another shade of Blue Pill. You must go deeper, separate much further, to realize true elevation and clarity awarded only to the lucky few that choose to purse the path of a MGTOW Monk.

See you on the motherfuckin’ Far Side… and I’m out.

Destruction of Male Spaces: An Encounter With A Blue Pill Man (MGTOW)

It would have been Year 5 of the new Christmas tradition to make a family trip to the theaters, specifically to catch the new Star Wars’ films. However, this year I decided to give up my responsibility of securing the tickets this year, even though this was a tradition I started, as I was too focused on MGTOW Monk Mode which makes you less tethered to the outside world; Holidays and even your own birthday begin to lose their significance. Also, the fact that J.J. Abrams was returning for The Rise of Skywalker was going to make organizing this event feel like an obligation and less of my personal passion project as it used to be.

Thus, this story will probably seem overly-dramatic, but keep in mind that I was also looking for any good excuse to skip out on a movie I no longer had enthusiasm to see.

So, I had one simple rule to guarantee my attendance: this would be a family-exclusive event, and anyone born without our last name could not be invited.

Now, if it was up to me, I would have just invited only the single men in my family, but since it was my Uncle’s responsibility now, he decided to invite my brother and his son, so he could also initiate my young nephew into the Sci-Fi Fantasy genre the same way we were.

While we were going over the plans for the trip with my married brother, his first concern was that he had to tell his wife. Initially, I thought he was asking for permission, which I thought was odd because there should be no objection to him spending quality father-and-son time, and it’s a family event.

But no, it was far worse than that. He just couldn’t bear spending any time just with his blood-family and had to invite her.

The reason why I made the rule up in advance was because he showed similar behavior during the last outing, for Solo. Not only was he about to flake on us, but when he saw there were still seats available at the theater when we arrived, he frantically scrambled to invite his girlfriend, and his best friend who would also bring his girlfriend.

It’s a family event. Why is he trying to have this random double date on the side?

My Uncle’s only objection was that my brother would have to pay for his wife’s ticket, but I snapped and said if she goes, she can just take my ticket because I no longer want to go.

What happened next was pure gold.

So, in my brother’s puny Blue Pill brain, he thought it was a trump card to bring up that our grandfather is proud that he has extended the family name twice by having a son and a wife.

I responded, “First off, she could divorce you and change her name, and second, why are you bringing up the family bloodline just for one Saturday afternoon? Really? You are truly a lost boy.

Maybe you think this whole story is unnecessarily dramatic, but I don’t see it that way. My relationship with my brother has already been steadily deteriorating, and I really wanted this movie outing to be a last ditch effort to reignite the old bonds and camaraderie between us.

But he doesn’t want that. We’re not cool enough to hang out with anymore, I guess. Rules and tradition don’t matter; we have to use “diplomacy”, as my uncle said.

Fuck that though. Not standing your ground and making concessions is exactly how stupidity like the infiltration and decline of the Boy Scouts happens.

The Blue Pill man is never going to be in your corner, doesn’t even matter if you’re family.

Blood may be thicker than water, but it’s not thicker than pussy juice, that’s for sure.

After this experience, there is no doubt that all future associations with blue-pill men will have to be kept to an absolute minimum. There’s no guarantees that they will uphold whatever traditions, customs, and bonds you’ve built with them, as they will gladly sacrifice them for the validation of a woman.

It’s also why I’ve chosen to brand myself MGTOW and not just Moon Base, because those are the only men I can truly trust to have my back these days. Even single men like my Uncle (who appears to be MGTOW on the outside), still don’t make the cut because they don’t have the internal knowledge of female nature and the weakness of their fellow men.

I’ll still enjoy the company of my family, but I’ll just say that the world is a very big place. I want unanimous trust, loyalty, and brotherhood. If I can’t have that, I have no problem finding it somewhere else, or walking this path alone, and going my own way.

See you on the Far Side… – Monk Moon Base

Update: My brother and I still have a very good relationship. I know it could end someday, either by one of us moving away or disagreement because of his religion, so I have decided to enjoy what I can from it until that day eventually comes.
