Messenger of Dionysos · Mused by Apollo

In ancient times, Satyr was the horned and horny messenger of Eleusinian forest god Dionysos. He mesmerized the youth of nearby villages with the musical magic of his flute and made them dance till broad daylight. In our common present, the spirit of Satyr inhabits the body of a human boy. Searching for a new way to spread the vibe of the forest, Satyr switched to SL and CDJ instruments, which fit the job quite nicely.

War No More - X: Support All Troops!

WAR NO MORE - X: Support All Troops!

"A toast.
To the troops!
All the troops, both sides."

- Ryan Howard, The Office
Season 8, Episode 4: Garden Party

Well, that about sums it all up in a quote and a wink. Divide et Impera - divide and rule, divide and conquer - whichever translation one fancies, down on Earth we seem to choose to fight none other than ourselves. As They do not exist, all war equals Us vs Us. We seem to participate in this repetitive shadow-boxing match: most of us fight one another, ad infinitum if not merely to the death, while most of the rest of us place our bets.

To gain understanding of Divide et Impera, its applications and implications, one needs to investigate the motto quite thoroughly, reaching for resources beyond those up for grabs, laid down at the common shoals at Wiki-depth. Doing so, one may comprehend, for instance, that the implementation of Divide et Impera strategies creates possibilities for some to rule over many, simply by creating opposition amongst the masses.

Some of us attain this goal by causing needless yet greedful competition, strife and war amidst humanity, instead of preventing "smaller power groups from linking up, causing rivalries and fomenting discord among the people" — a quote sampled from a quite simplified and rather naive interpretation, rooted in political theory, not practice (source: Wikipedia). This seems to turn the world on its head. Does it not appear logical, that unity leads to accord and division to discord?

Anywave, ...
Carefully examining this subject matter should help to clear the sky and enable to shed more light on one's own comprehension of the illusory character of the Us vs Them paradigm, one of humanity's generally preferred collective hallucinations.

Anything to add, dear Albert, my fellow militant pacifist?

"Nothing will end war, unless the people themselves
refuse to go to war." - Albert Einstein, 1931 (source / source) *

Refuse to go to war.
Nothing special, really.
Merely sharing the sentiment, again.

* For more on Einstein's pacifist perspective, read A Peace of the Pi.

More War No More to follow
for as long as we choose
to divide, oppose and prod
one and other like cattle

freakuently unanswered questions

? what is Satyr

! in ancient times, Satyr roamed the Eleusinian forests as the horned and horny messenger of Dionysos - the god of ritual intoxication. He mesmerized the youth of nearby villages with the musical magic of his flute, and made them dance till broad daylight.

? where is Satyr

! in our recent past, Satyr reincarnated in the concrete jungle of Amsterdam as a DJ. At age ten, he recorded his first mix, displaying his love for early hip hop and electro, and soon his tapes were in high demand. After the Second Summer Of Love, he got turned on by new dimensions of synthetic sound and ventured into the realms of acid-house, techno and trance music.

? does he still play flute

! the Panflute has become an artefact in captivity, held safe and sound in the archeological archive of the Vatican. Yet, ever since the early 1990s, up and until our common present, Satyr became increasingly skilled as a player of the SL & CDJ instruments, spinning various styles of eclectronica and edm alike, embracing a wide range of the bpm spectrum with remarkable sparkle.

Difficult to pigeonhole yet sharply focused on and specialized in ambidelic chillout, psytrance, tech trance, uptech and several kinds of steps; entertaining events for 50 to 50.000 people, by serving his spicy melange of clean cuts and dirty grooves, mixing it down and grinding it up from raw to smooth.

A few memorable events ecstasized by Satyr:
Amsterdam Dance Event (NL), Atmosphere (Berlin / D), Ballonnenfeest (NL), Burning Man (USA), Carnival (Varginha / Brazil), Club A (Sao Paulo / Brazil), Dance Valley (NL), Love & Magic (Oslo / Norway), Metsafestiwaal (Finland), Pi Club (Berlin / D), Q-Base (D), Senseblender fest (B), Universo Paralello (Bahia / Brazil), VooV Experience (D), and many more in Belgium, Brazil, Estonia, Finland, Germany, Greece, Lithuania, Norway, Portugal, Slovakia, USA & all over The Netherlands.*
