Man’s proper stature is not one of mediocrity, failure, frustration,

strength, and nobility. In short, man can and ought to be a hero.
It is a less common pursuit to chase enlightment via the empowerment of the flesh in cyberspace. After all, problem solving and learning is a pursuit that challenges cognitive functions without significantly empowering the body. The very nature of the net and by extension technology is a tool that helps bring into being thoughts and work that rarely contains substance in realspace. For this reason, I consider necessary to be able to display such feats of intellect and hard work in one's own body, into the flesh that envelops them. Personally, I love cultivating my body. The methodologies and philosophical foundations laid by Mike Mentzer offer a unique and obscure way to express feats of strength and benign ethics.
