    General CommentI find the title of this song amusing. Who knew that there was a place for critical theory in hardcore?

    General Commentthe two movements seem to be grounded in the same ideals to me. they really aren't all that divergent.

    General CommentHardcore wasn't very intellectual before Orchid. Still, there might be some basic crossover, but I don't think there's all that much in common.

    General CommentI don't agree that hardcore wasn't very intellectual before Orchid.

    Saetia talked about Greek and Roman mythology very accurately.

    Rites of Spring referenced Slavic mythology very cleverly and accurately.

    Etc.

    General CommentAlso, two years later...


    I'm pretty sure that this is reference to modern existentialism. I'm going to say that what one person said earlier about fate, and everything happens for a reason is completely wrong.

    Basic existentialist philosophy states that the human being exists before essence, unlike a man made object. Man made objects exist in the essence of a concept. Sartre used the idea of a book or a paper-cutter. Paper cutter exists because man built it with the concept of a tool to cut paper... Man provides the essence to his life with the decisions he makes, and he is completely responsible for who he is and who he can be. He is also responsible for other people with each choice he makes. Whether he likes it or not, every decision he makes, and who he is, is projected. (Sartre used several examples, including but not limited to marriage)

    SO.. "Like anywhere else there are no coincidences, probability makes for accomplices and change creates meaning." When we move, it's a movement.

    When we move([when one]makes a choice for oneself), it's a movement.(one makes a choice for all)

    General CommentI've listened to at least over 40 Orchid songs this one i have yet to hear.

    but anyway i think in quotations its saying
    everything happens for a reason
    destiny;fate kinda thing

    and then ( when we move , its movement)
    hes kinda saying that your decisions lead
    you to where youre gonna go , not entirely
    fate
