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.

“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.”

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.

THE IDES OF MARCH & THE DAY AFTER
How did the world come to be crowded with so many little Caesars? Are we approaching a new age of ceremonial regicide? For too long a revolutionary perspective has been the view from a periscope, whereas the true corruption lies in our spleen, like a sludge of accumulated microplastic. It’s no longer enough to “cut off the head of the Beast,” the virus of the Corporate-State Apparatus has infiltrated every vital organ of the social body, the lymph, the entire nervous system. It has infected the stratosphere, poisoned the oceanic abysses. Its replication has gone into overdrive: soon the planet itself will be nothing but one giant sarcoma. It won’t be a question anymore of the accumulation of Capital: there’ll be no more air for what once was real to dissolve into. For too long we’ve been told to be prudent, that “revolution” is a child’s cloud-castle. But prudence, as Blake said, is a rich ugly old maid courted by incapacity.

THE ANTHROPOCENE IS CAPITALISM’S “HUMAN HYPOTHESIS”
Between the Anthropocene & the approaching Technological Singularity a stark predicament comes into view: that those cultural formations so far modelled on “Western democracy” are unable on their own to produce the social, political & economic transformations necessary to survive the conditions likely to prevail in the coming century.

A breach has been made with the past, bringing into perspective new aspects of alienation: the morphology of a dead technical civilisation in the fictional process of resurrection! And we are returning again to the “honesty of thought & feeling?” Continue reading “THE ALIENIST TENDENCY”
