Notes on the Vargosphere
#1
"The Vargosphere" is the informal association of neo-pagans who are aligned with Varg Vikernes. They exist almost exclusively on Twitter, to the extent that any Varg-pagan anywhere else is not in contact with the main group unless they are on Twitter. This is because Varg himself, and his wife Marie, are on Twitter. Varg is banned periodically, but he always comes back.

-The Vargosphere exists as a result of the cult of personality of Varg, and it would not continue to exist without him. His and his wife's philosophy, that the pagan myths are MetAPhoRs fOr ReProdUcTion, is not sufficient to bring people together. Necessary, but not sufficient, to bring them together, are Varg's hints about his social views.

-The aforementioned philosophy is not even necessary to bring the Varg-pagans together. There is no such thing as a person who "ardently believes that Odin hanging from the world tree was really a metaphor for the placenta". It exists only as something people say they agree with, in order to be accepted by the group.

-Incredibly sycophantic community. All posts are constant regurgitations of the same ideas, usually which stem from Varg. Everyone trying to please Varg, as he is sparing with praise but liberal with disagreement, and disagreement usually bars all hope of friendship.

-Very many women, especially for a community like that. All the books on paganism are devised by Varg's wife, so appeals to women. Plus, focus on homesteading and raising families.

-These women are usually somewhat high quality, though there is something "socially weird" about them that I could never identify. Same with the men, though the men are slightly lower quality than the women and some (usually South Americans) are ugly weirdos who are duly distanced from the main group. Many are more intelligent than the sycophantic framework allows them to express, but they don't care because they are not interested in theorizing.

-All involved are of a very "selective" nature. Somehow, almost every account is followed by more people than they follow. Enhances the gatekeeping of the community.

-Much of the discourse consists of lamentations that can easily be solved by the community itself, but aren't. All want to find a plot of land somewhere and live a simple life there with family and friends. Given the amount of women present, this can easily be achieved, but I can't think of one case where it happened. They are paranoid about feds, so meeting in person doesnt happen.

To me, it seems like the community is "on pause". It clearly has a certain destiny: the creation of Varg inspired neo-pagan homesteading families. All members are conscious of this destiny, and they wouldn't want it any other way. Yet everyone endlessly harps on it rather than actually doing it.

Edit: assuming everyone knows, but for the anthropological record: Varg-pagans are pro-European, racists, primitivists, apolitical, and believe in a vague future political apocalypse.

They are literally all just autistic.

The average christian also doesn't care whether Jesus was miaphysite or monophysite, they agree with their denomination in order to be accepted by the group. Congratulations, you have figured out how human societies work.

The women all look like the types who "love books" to me. These weird theater girls who read 5000 shit genre fiction and YA novels you've never heard of every year. They can be kind of pretty, but they're also undeniably weird.

As I said, they are autistic: they are the female equivalent of an Amarnite. I think we have a "pot calling the kettle black" situation, here, unless you think that everyone here is actually tapped in?

I can't say because I have no idea what you mean by autistic, tapped in, or amarnite.

Amarnites are those who support BAP, Nigel Carlsbad, Jawn, Jim, and this forum.

Who are Jawn and Jim?

Jawn would be the twitter account Jawn_117 and Jim is the author of Jim's Blog, neoreaction type guy I believe, but someone more versed in online rw history could maybe go into more detail.

I was highly attracted to the Vargosphere before Varg came out with his belief in placenta's being Divine etc. They seemed to be people who embraced ecology in a non-larpy way and to have a real understanding of the connection between the decline of our race and the sundering of our race from the natural world. Many of Varg's earlier writings on the Thulean Perspective blog are still really good if you can appreciate them without the taint of what he would end up saying later. He had a post on there about "Hamingja" that I always found interesting.

The superiority of the autists is proven once again.

He kind of got cucked by his wife. All the placenta and reproductive metaphor shit is hers.
