Requesting your most profound, world-shattering or design/construction conception discourses and books.
Politics, science, mind, philosophy, fiction.
Distill what you know for everyone if you can and perhaps you'll have ushered along the age by another mind.
>genuine request, I'm essentially a blank slate save for some David Gemmell and self-help books.
you wanna go?
there's a lot. anything specific?
i have the new testament i think. i'll fish it all out now
The Greek Myths to start. Has all sorts of interesting contextual stuff, but don’t take any of it as gospel
Start with the Greeks. No meme. Robert Graves is breddy gud, just as an example
The Holy Bible by God

Thus Spoke Zarathustra
Added to the list

Looks like you’re off to a good start anon. Happy reading!
Still interested in compiling that list, I’m going to get through this stack eventually.
