This post is for those anti-Game theological types (cough-wackos-cough; heh) who assert that Game isn’t biblical.
1) What is Game?
2) What is a Neg?
3) What is the purpose of the Song of Solomon?
Vox Day defines Game as
a philosophical heuristic…[to] learn successful patterns of behavior and improve his position in the socio-sexual hierarchy by observing and imitating the patterns of behavior exhibited by socially successful individuals.
I found the definition of Neg at the Urban Dictionary.
“A light insult wrapped in the package of a complement”
The Song of Solomon is to be read as a love story between a man and a woman. It shows by example how men and women interact sexually. It would be a mistake to take any moral lessons from SoS or to read any moral lessons into SoS.
So, where is there a Neg in SoS?
I compare you, my love,
to a mare among Pharaoh’s chariots.
Your cheeks are lovely with ornaments,
your neck with strings of jewels.
The man calls the woman a horse. Not only that, she is only one horse among many of Pharaoh’s horses. Not particularly outstanding. Sure, she wears lovely ornaments, but so do all the other horses. This ought not be read as an insult, but as a playful neg. After all, the man has just called the woman “most beautiful among women.” Now he is backtracking playfully on his hyperbole, engaging the woman in playful emotional grappling about her attractiveness and her sexuality. The woman is wondering “What does he really think about me?” This is a classic neg.
