oh, nina, what a lot of parties

watched Stephen Fry's Bright Young Things [+][+] this morning, AQ 376 = BRIGHT YOUNG THINGS = BOURGEOIS OF TALLINN (Lou: The Story of a Free Woman, Françoise Giroud). based on Evelyn Waugh's AQ 192 = VILE BODIES = TRUE WILL. title from AQ 234 = PHILIPPIANS 3:21 = BABY SHUTTLE = LYSISTRATA Who shall change our vile body, that it may be fashioned like unto his glorious body, according to the working whereby he is able even to subdue all things unto himself. my greek isn't great, but the word for change is metaschematizo which "refers to the transient condition from which a change happens". metaschematizo only appears 5 times in the bible, once in Philippians & four times in 2 Corinthians (3 times in 2 Corinthians 11). metamorphoo "refers to the permanent state to which a change takes place" appears four times. twice (Matthew 17:2 & Mark 9:2 describing Jesus' transfiguration), Romans 12:2 (but be ye metamorphoo by the renewing of your mind) & 2 Corinthians 3:18 (metamorphoo into the same image).

Philippians 3:20: For our conversation is in heaven. conversation from politeuma which only appears here & means "the commonwealth of citizens" from politeuomai "to be a citizen", which is a "middle voice of a derivative of" polites "citizen", from polis "a city", which is "probably from the same as" polemos "war, i.e., the whole course of hostilities". Bright Young Things takes place between "the wars" ending with the main character in uniform.

AQ 238 = METAMORPHOO = YOD HEH VAU HEH.
AQ 284 = METASCHEMATIZO = SOLVE ET COAGULA.

AQ 324 = YEAR END ROLLOVER = ANTHROPOMORPHIC = DEEP SPACE NETWORK = DOMAIN OF POLITICS = DROIT DU SEIGNEUR = NUMBER AS DESTINY.

AQ 440 = TEMPORARY ELECTRICITY = ANTI-BALLISTIC MISSILE (ABM) = BREAKING THE CARBON BARRIER (Molecular Migration) = DESIRE PRODUCES REALITY (D+G) = EMPIRICAL JUSTIFICATION = GENETIC PREDISPOSITION = HISTORY OF THE CALCULUS (Badiou on Deleuze) = LEVEE BREAKS ON SEPTEMBER 11, 2001 = MISSION CONTROL CENTER = PERIODIC TABLE OF ELEMENTS = PROPAGATING WAVE IN SPACE = SPECULATIVE LONG JUMPS (à gauche) = THE CEPHALOEDIUM WORKING = THE CHALLENGE OF OBSCENITY = THE SINGLE SEPARATE THING (PJ-Mullins) = THINKING THE UNTHINKABLE = TRAUMA-BASED MIND CONTROL (Lynn Schirmer) = WORST PLACE IN THE WORLD.

AQ 415 = PERMANENT ELECTRICITY = BIG BEN STRIKES THE HOUR = CHEMICAL INSTRUCTIONS = ENDOSYMBIOTIC THEORY = ENVERS PROGRESSISTE (progressive inversion; Logiques des mondes) = MEKTOUB, IT IS WRITTEN = RAINBOW OBSIDIAN SPHERE = RAMBUNCTIOUS ROVERS = STANISLAW LESNIEWSKI (Mereology) = SURREALIST MANIFESTO (written by French writer André Breton, 1924; Psychic automatism in its pure state, by which one proposes to express—verbally, by means of the written word, or in any other manner—the actual functioning of thought. Dictated by the thought, in the absence of any control exercised by reason, exempt from any aesthetic or moral concern) = TAIWAN, PROVINCE OF CHINA = THE AMERICAN ENTERPRISE = THE CRY OF THE 6TH AETHYR = THE THREEFOLD BOOK OF LAW = WHAT CANNOT BE TOLERATED.

checking my comment box got me reading about AQ 519 = UNITED STATES HOUSING BUBBLE = INTERNATIONAL SPACE STATION, peonage & serfdom. AQ 285 = HOMEOWNERSHIP = LIBER AL VEL LEGIS. AQ 306 = NEGATIVE EQUITY = ASTEROID #1566-ICARUS = THE BUSH DOCTRINE. AQ 520 = NOSE-BLEED HEIGHTS & HARD LANDINGS = SYMPOSIUM DO PORNOGRAPHY. AQ 318 = REAL ESTATE MARKET = LYSISTRATA LIVE = SLAVE COMMUNITY. money i owe to the Franchise Tax Board of the fine state of Californication from the AQ 222 = DOT-COM BUBBLE = A HARD WIRE JOB. therefore, extremely painfully ironic2 watching AQ 315 = ADAM FENWICK-SYMES = HURRICANE KATRINA win a thousand pounds, lose a thousand pounds & win thirty-four thousand pounds betting on AQ 669 = INDIAN RUNNER FOR THE NOVEMBER HANDICAP = HYPERSTITION.ABSTRACTDYNAMICS.ORG (found website @ nov 2004).

btw. yesterday, thinking about the five stages of grief & The Angel of the Lord, aka Gloria. whose mom used to be an evangelist. who used to be homeless until she got an apartment here years ago. who needed to pee real bad, so i let her use my bathroom. misplacing Franchise Tax Board envelope. searching frantically while Gloria kept proclaiming, the devil's in it! finally finding it where i left it (praise the lord!). driving Gloria to the LA County Fairgrounds at Fairplex she told me she likes growing plants on her patio & they do very well because she talks to them. but she never thought of working in a flower shop before.

AQ 328 = THE ANGEL OF THE LORD = DEBT-RIDDEN ECONOMY = PURCHASING POWER = ROCKET LAUNCH SITE = VIAJE TIEMPO ATRAS.

AQ 414 = WAS A TIME I WON'T FORGET = CONGRESSUS CUM DAEMONE = EMPIRICAL DESTRUCTION = GODDESS OF GOOD FORTUNE = L.A. COUNTY FAIR GROUNDS = THE HYSTERICAL SUBLIME = THE LOVER'S CONFESSION.

AQ 446 = OR THE SORROW AND REGRET = DECLARATION OF INDEPENDENCE = FLIGHT CONTROLLER'S CREED = JIHAD: THE ABSENT OBLIGATION = THE DESTROYING SERPENT.

AQ 346 = AND THE SHAPE OF A HEART = A TRUTH IS INFINITE = æECONOMIC SOLUTION' = CLASS OF MULTIPLES = POSITIVE CASH FLOW = THE RAPE OF THE OTHER (Derangement of the senses, M Satai).

soundtrack of my life working overtime: just as i was reading this i was listening to this.

AQ 271 = DESPERATE HEART = DEBT SERVITUDE.
AQ 290 = CAN WE CALL IT A LOAN? = NORTHANGER ABBEY = STUDY OF MONEY.
AQ 316 = ON A BET THAT I LOST = MENTAL ACCOUNTING = SACKCLOTH AND ASHES = THE ENGLISH TAROT.
AQ 256 = SEVEN OF DISKS (Failure) = ENGLISH TAROT = NEGATIVE LIGHT = TWIN TOWERS
AQ 151 = BAD MONEY (Seven of Disks, Failure) = EQUITY = FATAL EASE (7 of Cups, Debauch).
AQ 388 = LEADEN DISKS OF SATURN (Seven of Disks, Failure) = PRESIDENT GEORGE BUSH.
AQ 681 = IF I'D ONLY KNOWN WHAT YOUR HEART COST = WE HOLD THESE TRUTHS TO BE SELF-EVIDENT.
AQ 314 = LIVES IN THE BALANCE = NEGATIVE CASH FLOW = SHOW ME THE MONEY.

AQ 512 = BLOOD IN THE INK OF THE HEADLINES = SERIOUS TROUBLE IS BREWING (The New Road to Serfdom, Michael Hudson) = TRIGGER BREAKNECK ACCELERATION = TRUE AND FAITHFUL REVELATION.

AQ 604 = WHERE A GOVERNMENT LIES TO A PEOPLE = 1. ABRAHADABRA; THE REWARD OF RA HOOR KHUT (Liber AL III:1) = A SECRETO AGRAVIO, SECRETO VENGANZA («That is to say, a way of causing mess, which in turn causes more Control, which in turn causes even mess. The end result being that the mess will reach a critical mass that will bring about the end of Control (or your dark god Chernobog)?» Once again, I agree with your statement but I think such a control / mess hysteria actually doesn't simply happen through the horizon of dialectics, opposition or tactics ... the plane of mess hysteria, of course, lies in the growth and strengthening of paranoia but does not simply follow a calculable series of referral movements, causality or the most influential and institutionalized formula in the history of both occidental and oriental evil, the revenge / avenge formula which as Ramon Cajal named 'For a secret offence, a secret revenge' (A secreto agravio, secreto venganza), a formula molded over the horizon of terror trying to domesticate and oversimplify tactical multiplicities (or any base-communication) in a WAR to merely polar and linear actions out of lack (here offense and revenge), transforming them to lines of terror, and mapping them through a Trial while slyly make them stealth to dissimulate the gaseous space of strategy. Laura Otis in her work Membranes: Metaphors of Invasion [in Nineteenth-Century Literature, Science, and Politics] brings a good investigation to the dialectical / terrorist / oversimplifying heart of this haunting formula. —Control and Mess Engineering, Reza Negarestani) = CLANDESTINE ACTIVITIES INSIDE IRAN (The Iran Plans, Seymour M. Hersh) = DISINTEGRATED, ERRATIC AND ALEATORY (Change in the epoch of Singularity Revolutions is not only nonlinear (logistic) in aggregate, but also polycatastrophic: disintegrated, erratic and aleatory - a breakthrough in any number of technoscientific lineages could have consequences that are impossible to circumscribe - molecular gigacivilizations triggered in a petri dish or self-assembling artificial intelligences speading like wildfire through the Internet. Since the earth already hosts incomprehensibly vast quantities of DNA, all basically computationally inert, an intelligenic technoviral trigger that switched significant chunks of it into productive cognition would probably be the best radical accelerator. There are innumerable alternative scenarios however, and more every year (every week?). Anyway, this seem right: "The motor for the scenario is exponentially escalating peril and panic." —Nick) = LAUNCH PHASE A8M SYSTEM INDICATORS (Fer de Lance, Tom Bearden) = MAKING A KILLING: THE BUSINESS OF WAR (The Center for Public Integrity) = THE SAFFIR-SIMPSON HURRICANE SCALE.

ps. post didn't seem quite complete, so decided to pull a card. Seven of Disks pulled randomly. seemed to fit the story of my sorry money situation. made additions & revisions.
