Jon Nodtveidt's take on anticosmic

-anticosmic people refuses to be a servant of the cosmic order
-refuses to being someone's creation,a passive victim of cosmic fate,chained to the wheel of life,blinded by illusions and lies that has only one purpose;to keep us in line in a system controlled by the oppressor
-to strive for liberation and enlightenment,thus refusing to accept the inherited yoke of humanity. choose to eternally become,to consciously strive away from,and beyond the pre dictated conditions for existence and to struggle towards becoming completely self made,in accordance to my own true will,free from all weaknesses and chains that binds us to the cosmic creation. it is not for the masses,it is for the elite who doesnt want control.
