Dr. Steel Is Pretty Cool? I Guess So

7 Sep

Last year I became infatuated with Dr.Steel and his way of collecting fans and organizing them. Dr.Steel is a music artist and an internet personality, usually performing steampunk or industrial music. He often says “Dr.Steel for world emperor” and he has quite an avant-garde way of acting and speaking. His fans call themselves different things.

  • Toy Soldiers
  • Utility Soldiers
  • Military Nurses
  • Nurses (separate from Military Nurses)
  • Toy Scouts

At first I thought it was odd but now I am a toy soldier ^^; Dr.Steel retired early on in 2011 after attempting to release a new album and failing. His fans are still around, calling themselves the nicknames I wrote up there, but instead of talking about his music, they’re trying to spread the image that Dr.Steel was spreading. He believed that creativity was a very important part of a human being and often spoke about “trans-humanism”, “freedom of thought” and “subjective reality”.

  • Transhumanism, abbreviated as H+ or h+, is an international intellectual and cultural movement that affirms the possibility and desirability of fundamentally transforming thehuman condition by developing and making widely available technologies to eliminate agingand to greatly enhance human intellectual, physical, and psychological capacities.
  • Freedom of thought (also called the freedom of conscience or ideas) is the freedom of an individual to hold or consider a fact, viewpoint, or thought, independent of others’ viewpoints.
  • Subjective reality

    The subjectivity of perception of reality implies that perception of all of the things, concepts, and “truths” in the universe differ between individuals: we all live in different worlds, each of which may have things in common, because of our unique perspectives on our worlds. The only thing to which one can hold oneself is something one has experienced or perceived. Until someone has had an experience of something the object or concept within itself is not real. Someone in Africa is aware of the existence of fire and sees it but for an Eskimo who has never seen fire before the fire does not exist in the same way. The idea of the subjectivity of reality also hints at an aspect of moral relativism, that each person’s opinions are the only things they can hold themselves to.

His music and style isn’t for every person, especially those who prefer hip-hop and rap, but it’s worth a try!
