ploutos: pebbles, coins, beads, and medals



Recall the transformations that according to Ferenczi (1914), disguise the infantile desire to play with one's feces: the desire to play with feces becomes a desire to play with odourless materials that have the same consistency as feces (sand, mud, and so on), which in turn becomes a desire to play with small hard objects. In this analysis I have argued that fingering Rosary beads gratifies the now transformed desire to play with small hard objects. But in Ferenczi's original discussion small hard objects meant first pebbles and then coins. The insight that coins were symbolic feces was especially important in Ferenczi's discussion because it is a strong fascination with coins that gives rise to the concern with money and with parsimony that is so characteristic of the anal personality. Dundes (1984) also relies on the coins = feces equation to explain the prevalence of the feces-into-gold motif in Germanic folklore.

According to the classic theory of fossil fuels (i.e. excluding Thomas Gold's theory of the Deep Hot Biosphere), petroleum was formed as a Tellurian entity under unimaginable pressure and heat in the absence of oxygen and between the strata, in absolute isolation—a typical Freudian Oedipal case, then … Petroleum's hadean formation developed a satanic sentience through the politics of in-between which inevitably 'wells up' through the God-complex deposited in the strata (the logic of 'double-articulation, the double-pincer' according to Deleuze and Guattari), to the surface. Envenomed by the totalitarian logic of the tetragrammaton, yet chemically and morphologically depraving and traumatizing Divine logic, petroleum's autonomous line of emergence is twisted beyond recognition. Emerged under such conditions, petroleum possesses tendencies for mass intoxication on pandemic scales (different from but corresponding to capitalism's voodoo economy and other types of global possession systems). Petroleum is able to gather the necessary geo-political undercurrents (subterranean or blobjective narrations of politics, economy, religion, etc.) required for the process of Erathication or the moving of the Earth's body toward the Tellurian Omega—the utter degradation of the Earth as a Whole.

oh… AQ-353 THE CHECK IS IN THE MAIL {Sep 24th}, AQ-353 TELLURIAN DYNAMICS. which reminds me: watched The Exorcist on 27-Sep. kinda funny watching a seventies movie that starts in Iraq. the medallion appears at the beginning and at the end. Father Merrin seemed to know what it meant, but i have to check the book to see what Blatty says about it.

indeed, the check is in the mail & has not been cashed. fisticuffs between bank and rental office - right now!

while we wait for the rental dénouement, more exorcist notes: [1] Jane Fonda called it a "capitalist piece of shit"; [2] opening sequence at Sinjar, Iraq - GlobalSecurity.org profile; [3] apparently, Regan becomes possessed using a ouija board - Captain Howdy; [4] first horror movie nominated for best picture in 1973; but The Sting won the oscar; [5] Hyper C update - The Age of Babalu; [6] Blatty interview (which really makes me want to read the book) - links, including 1949 article on book's inspiration; [7] the reason Pazuzu attacks certain people is that those people all have some form of psychic healing ability - script: Not oniy Kokumo, but others like him, began to appear in the worid. I found them where I couid... and tried to protect them against evil. So Satan has sent Pazuzu to destroy this goodness.

cyclonopedia notes: Parsani's discovery coincided with one of Hyper-Lab's (Hyperstition's laboratory) theoretico-fictional projects (AQ-479 NEXUSES BETWEEN NUMERACY). project halted because of…

AQ 690 = TECHNICAL ELEMENTS FOR THE FICTIONAL SIDE = CHEMICAL EVOLUTION OF THE EARTH'S CRUST.

{p15-17}. …what was missing was some vehicle for transporting the theoretical carriers in their expedition, a narrative line with the appropriate authority to mobilize the fictional side of the project… The discussion at Hyperstition ultimately developed into what would later be defined as "blobjectivity', or the logics of petropolitical undercurrents. According to a blobjective point of view, petropolitical undercurrents function as narrative lubes: they interconnect inconsistencies, anomalies or what we might simply call the 'plot holes' in narratives of planetary formations and activities. To this extent, petropolitical undercurrents run through terrestrial decoding machines, conspiracies, polytics and Tellurian dynamics — or what, in Gilles Deleuze and Félix Guattari's somewhat aestheticist and conservative appropriation, is known as the New Earth (on the basis of what calendar, according to which planetary reference, is this New Earth announced?) A blobjective view necessarily diverges from the Earth as a whole towards an entirely different entity, an earth under the process of 'Erathication', as it was called in Hyperstition's laboratory… To grasp war as a machine, or in other words, to inquire into the Abrahamic war machine in its relation to the technocapitalist war machine we must first realize which components allow Technocapitalism and Abrahamic monotheism to reciprocate at all, even on a synergistically hostile level. The answer is oil: War on Terror cannot be radically and technically grasped as a machine without consideration of the oil that greases its parts and recomposes its flows; such consideration must begin with the twilight of hydrocarbon and the very dawn of the Earth.

glossary stuff

The "War Machine" is a tool of the nomad through which capture can be avoided and smooth space preserved ~ The 'smooth' space of Go, as against the 'striated' space of chess

p16 mentions all these war machines: {1} D&G model, {2} Abrahamic War Machine (the contemporary war machine - grasping war as a machine; monotheistic stimulation, war as product/object, consummates technocapitalist oecumenon), and {3} Technocapitalist War Machine — and the petropolitical undercurrents that interconnect them (which i think is the Gog-Magog Axis).

ECUMENON ~ There is a single abstract machine that is enveloped by the stratum and constitutes its unity. This is the Ecumenon, as opposed to the Planomenon of the plane of consistency. ¶ It would be a mistake to believe that it is possible to isolate this unitary, central layer of the stratum, or to grasp it in itself, by regression. In the first place, a stratum necessarily goes from layer to layer, and from the very beginning. {A Thousand Plateaus}

OECUMENON ~ Neoroman norming-target and security architecture supporting the megasocius of terrestrial capitalism. {ccru}

ECUMENE ~ Ecumene (also spelled œcumene or oikoumene) a term originally used in the Greco-Roman world to refer to the inhabited earth (or at least the known part of it). The term derives from the Greek GRK-673 οικουμενη (the feminine present middle participle of the verb GRK-905 οικεω "inhabit"), short for GRK-684 οικουμενη γη "inhabited world".[1] In modern connotations it refers either to the projection of a united Christian Church or to world civilizations. {Wikipedia}

NEO-ROMAN ~ The neo-Roman, republican heritage was hugely influential in seventeenth-century England, where defenders like James Harrington and Algernon Sidney adopted the Roman and Renaissance conception of freedom and argued that 'it is only possible to be free in a free state' (Skinner 1997: 60). While the early English neo-Romans were anti-royalists, those who later embraced the crucial ideas endorsed the notion that a free state could be monarchical, provided that the monarch was subject to the law and was checked by the force of parliament. {Republicanism: A Theory of Freedom and Government}

THREE AXIAL IDEAS ~ The three axial ideas in this Roman tradition, then, are a conception of freedom as non-domination; a claim that freedom as non-domination requires a constitution under which the polity is focused on the common good; and a belief that certain institutional forms... are likely to be part of any such constitution. Freedom in the sense in question is the status enjoyed by someone to the extent that no one else stands over them like a master [in potestate domini]... In the nature of the case government does interfere in people's lives, levying taxes and imposing coercive laws. Thus, if it is allowed not to pursue the common good in how it does this—in effect, if it is allowed not to track people's common, recognizable interests—then its power of interference will be arbitrary in character and it itself will be a dominus or master. {Republicanism: A Theory of Freedom and Government}

RACE NORMING ~ The practice of adjusting scores on a standardized test by using separate curves for different racial groups. {American Heritage Dictionary}

FORMING-STORMING-NORMING-PERFORMING ~ model of group development first proposed by Bruce Tuckman in 1965, who maintained that these phases are all necessary and inevitable in order for the team to grow, to face up to challenges, to tackle problems, to find solutions, to plan work, and to deliver results. {Wikipedia}

if only those nasty corporations were a bit nicer

imho, State & Nomad make spaghetti code & lasagna code automatically, deliberately and some times unknowingly. blobjectivity is a method & a map through the maze.

fedex (& the bank of daddy) to the rescue! y'know, if it doesn't get paid by friday it'll be an extra 500 bucks? (someone noticed a profit-making strategy here). Sundance Kid: I can't pay my bills. Butch Cassidy: Are you crazy? The late fees will probably kill you.
