Back to Isolation

“‘As it happened to me,’ he tells himself, ‘so must it happen to everyone in whom a task wants to take form and ‘come into the world.'”

— Nietzsche, Human, All Too Human

I will not post for a while, going into isolation again for a period of intense study. I see clearly now how I can reconstruct the training I received at Wild Roots in the perennial philosophy, and once I do I will share the human rewilding method as it has been devised so far, at least the shards that I can collect.

It is your job, my true readers, to study with me. Form reading and study groups, diligently keep notes, cultivate your health and strength, and together we can construct a method for unleashing modernity’s overabundance of energy on itself.
