MATERIAL CATALOGUE

TOOLS & INSTRUMENTS
Not every advantage comes as an extension of the body. These tools and instruments allow the subject to perform specialized tasks and rituals, or simply to perform everyday tasks more efficiently. The sources of many of these products are unknown. Some are spawned from zonal anomalies, others the manifestation of longue durée. Others removed and recycled cybernetics. Each useful for the task that demanded its creation. Continue reading “MATERIAL CATALOGUE”

CONCUSSION PROTOCOLS

Dear Comrades
Not a fortune-teller, soothsayer, charmer, diviner or caster of spells — nor one who consults ghosts and spirits or seeks oracles from the dead — I have nonetheless been wondering about the possibility of confusion and how we might be extinguished. I recently had to ask Thirty-Seven to remind me who Forty-Six was. I have been replying to everyone and then deleting them from the face of the earth. (In the end I got my own lightbulb.) I have been replacing the subject. We might need a new classification — this kind of interaction is completely new to me, I have no idea what the rules of engagement are. I have no idea what is to be shared and what is not to be shared; for instance, during the eighteenth century the difference between history or pornography or fiction wasn’t always obvious. Notwithstanding, I shall set down whatever occurs worthy of my notice, in such a way that — far from impeding progress, far from weighing upon it with rules and regulations — my notes shall in time facilitate the invention of the first fluxgate magnetometer.

THE MARTIAN LSD EXPERIMENTS

Cydonia – Mars Colony – the present.

A psychocivilisational experiment has produced an evolved Corporate-State Apparatus in which all social & political relations are fatally entrapped inside an hallucination.

In such a world, where the irreal has become the last viable human habitat, inhumanity represents the final refuge of “ideological struggle.”

Yet to murder an illusion, it is necessary to become an illusion.

And the escape from the mind-control labyrinth leads through the uncharted Maze of false disillusionment, where there is no Theseus & myth itself is the Minotaur.

Thus spake Assmann.

PALOMARES BOMB GRRLS

“They were marching like fugitives around the city. They were hiding yet they
didn’t know what was after them. They were in murky depths in a city that
now spread out like a swamp. L-Bomb would sometimes close her right eye
to see more clearly by bringing an uncoupled luxuriance to her visioning. They
threaded themselves in & out of streets, roads, parks, broadways, markets,
shopping malls, squares without ever being individual entities. They suffered
the abundance of a kind of inexhaustible intermediate state. They were like
animals of oblivion, & this was a literal fact too as all ancestors end up with
apes & their ancestors, ultimately the stars. They were like creatures rooting
around, anyone watching would assume there was some sort of fickleness
in play as they would suddenly swing round & make off in a completely
new direction to the one they had been following, as if thoughts were being
freshly corrupted & their despair a butterfly.”

DEATH MASK SUTRA

INTERIOR MINISTRY, DEATH MASK SUTRA (2018), published by Alienist magazine

Interior Ministry, DEATH MASK SUTRA 1.0.4 (FULL BOOK) (PDF)

“But these extravagant forebodings dwindled in the light of reason. True, the word ‘Plague’ had been uttered; true, at this very moment one or two victims were being seized & laid low by the disease. Still, that cld stop, or be stopped. It was only a matter of lucidly recognising what had to be recognised; of expelling extraneous shadows & doing what needed to be done. Then the Plague wld come to an end, because it was unthinkable, or, rather, because one thought of it on misleading lines. If, as was most likely, it died out, all wld be well. If not, one wld know it anyhow for what it was.” (Albert Camus)

“From an epidemic point of view, the Plague is the only disease exactly resembling art.” (Antonin Artaud)

The revolution is now. Plague City, year zero. A contemporary retelling of Boccaccio’s Decameron, played-out against the backdrop of the 2000 Prague anti-globalisation riots, DEATH MASK SUTRA is a relentless parody of neoliberal economics & light-at-the-end-of-the-tunnel political irrealism.

ICONOCLASM

Alienist broadsheet #12 “ICONOCLASM” (August 2020) download PDF

 

UN AUTRE MONDE DE MERDE EST POSSIBLE

Those who do not know what life is, cannot know what victory is. Even cybernetics teaches us that the world is only what creates itself out of randomness & contingency. At a certain point, just by (still) being alive, this world, on the verge of having been vanquished, attests not to what has been “lost” but to opportunities that must yet be created. For existence to be bearable, nostalgia for an illusory past must be cast aside. For time itself to be survivable, for History to be more than a denouement, the “present” must be a perpetual tyrannicide. The enemies of life proffer nostalgia for a mythical benevolence – the authoritarian, psychotic benevolence of a Corporate-State rooted in divine right (the very DNA of all “manifest destiny”). They proffer nostalgia for LIFE ITSELF (which they call CREATION), as a weapon against conscience, against consciousness – as a weapon against possibility – as a weapon of demoralisation, of a future mortgaged in advance of itself, of a world that can no longer bear the sight of itself & beats itself to sleep at night – sticks a needle in its eye – turns in morbid desperation to every quack theory & miracle cure the robots have been able to cook up, like a mental plague. How has it been persuaded that it is fighting the good fight, when it cannot bear the sight of everything it has been fighting for? Continue reading “ICONOCLASM”

VIRAL TIME

1. EMERGENCY EXIT

From my window, I see a vast garden belonging to a monastery which was partially renovated into a hotel decades ago. Just a few monks are still living in the massive XVIII century building, and the hotel rooms remain empty since the travel ban was implemented. Monastic communities were supposed to be self-sufficient, so the garden used to be a fully-functioning urban farmland once, with cattle, sheep and swine, rows of fruit-trees, vegetables and cereal plants. Now it looks like a little golf course surrounded by a stone wall, crisscrossed by sand paths and decorated with a few peach and cherry trees blossoming under the dim light of the last winter days. Continue reading “VIRAL TIME”

COVIDOLOGY

THE DAY AFTER THE ONE BEFORE

What, being simply a mirror held up to an enforced economic system, calls itself art? What hand holds the mirror? If it is clear that no aesthetic revolution is possible without an equivalent revolution in the idea of the world, nor is social revolution possible without a revolution in the very idea of representation. Continue reading “COVIDOLOGY”

SLENDER MAN & KNIFING AS HORROR-COMMUNICATION

Digital Anonymity, Becoming-Imperceptible & the System of Destructive Writing

Becoming-anonymous is an aspect that is always already there within subjective relations. Becoming-imperceptible is a possibility, ever-present in the form of a real virtuality. Uniting visibility & invisibility, invisibly grasping all the various facets of exteriority & drawing these heterogenities into the cold, visible digital light of homogeneity, all these are movements that recede through the very process of manifestation. Within heterogeneity, a xeno-homogeneity is at work. Continue reading “SLENDER MAN & KNIFING AS HORROR-COMMUNICATION”

ENTROPOLOGY

At the end of the second decade of the twentyfirst century, it has become de rigueur to speak not only of an Anthropocene but of a post-Anthropocene, whose template has been provided by that historical fissure in which the late industrial World Order was cracked open & prised apart by a rapid succession of wars, nuclear armament, the Marshall Plan, cyberneticisation & neoliberalism, exposing the vista of an ideal (because viewed from the perspective of monolithic power) tabula rasa – like a virgin resource just beyond the frontier, on the other side of History. It is possible that the discourse of the End of History & its reversal within that of a resurgent transcendentalism have become more pervasive, more insistent, more determined than at any previous time, even if, as is frequently said, “the ability to conceive of the history of hominids & the destiny of the Earth in the same temporal trajectory seems particularly deceptive today.”[1] Continue reading “ENTROPOLOGY”

CAPITAL-[[ANTI]]CHRIST

A DEMONOLOGY OF TECHNOCAPITALISM

 

To begin, I must start with a warning. With the same reluctance that Paul Tillich injected into his demonology, I echo: “It is an extraordinary dilemma: to speak of the demonic will bring frenzy or emptiness or both – the demon will not leave his exposure unavenged… Never the less, these dangers will not deter us from our task.”[1] I am compelled to work a similar path & continue the unearthing of the demonic mechanism. This text traces the movements of forces that operate above & below human awareness, only revealing a fraction of their depths on the edges of perception. Continue reading “CAPITAL-[[ANTI]]CHRIST”
