AQ 4376 = THE MERLIN MYSTERY, TRACK FOURTEEN 06:09… ALCHEMY, THE MOST ANCIENT SECRET SCIENCE… SOME MIGHT EVEN CALL IT MAGIC… THE TRANSFORMATION OF BASE METALS INTO GOLD… NEGATIVE AND POSITIVE… THE ULTIMATE POWER OVER THE NATURAL WORLD… AND THE QUEST FOR THAT SECRET HAS BEGUN = WRESTING TIME BACK FROM WORK AND (/ = CAPITAL) IS AN URGENT PRECONDITION FOR ANTI-CAPITALISM, BUT THE DIFFICULTIES SUCH A DECOLONIZATION OF THE NERVOUS SYSTEM THROWS UP SHOULDN'T BE UNDERESTIMATED. IT CAN BE ABOUT AS EASY AS EXTRACTING A WORM FROM YOUR BRAIN (The idea of ‘a better use of energy’ need not entail the technophobic retrenchment favoured by many Greens. It is a formula applicable at all levels of culture, from how we work and consume to how we use our ‘free’ time. At the moment, this is often a misnomer, since as the slogan used to have it, free time is time which the boss doesn’t pay you for. Time spent in convalescence from work is not time spent on the kind of autonomous activity that can meaningfully count as free. If we remember the Situationists for only one thing, it should be for their hostility to work: ‘Never work’. (One of the most genuinely pathetic aspects of ‘old style socialism’, meanwhile, was its dogmatic commitment to workerism.) Wresting time back from work and (/ = capital) is an urgent precondition for anti-capitalism, but the difficulties such a decolonization of the nervous system throws up shouldn't be underestimated. It can be about as easy as extracting a worm from your brain; AQ-153, 194, AQ-205 ANTI-CAPITAL, AQ-212 NEVER WORK, AQ-212 WORKERISM, 254, 365, 372, 373, 374, 425, 477, 480, 537, AQ-613 ANTI-CAPITAL (SOME MODEST BEGINNINGS), 624, 719, 780, 841, 883, 1001, 1028, 1360, 1450, 1492, 1684, 1739, 1828, 1896, 2100, 2119, 2244, 3375).

AQ 406 = IL RICORDO DEL PRESENTE (Paolo Virno; AQ-377 CURRICULUM MORTIS {In one of his most remarkable texts, 'Historical Materialism', in Il Ricordo del Presente, Paolo Virno comments on Marx's insight that capital seeks in the worker the only thing that it cannot advance itself: non-objectified labour, labour which is still objectifying itself, labour as subjectivity; [googled: AQ-1554 NON-OBJECTIFIED LABOUR, LABOUR WHICH IS STILL OBJECTIFYING ITSELF, LABOUR AS SUBJECTIVITY (see more below), which popped #5›], AQ-1069 {In any case, translations: The first is from a book by Paolo Virno, Il ricordo del presente. Brett wrote a paper using this book which is worth reading as well. I’ve selected passages, well, selectively from the third section of the book. The selections focus on labor power, and leave out Virno’s discussion of time and historicity, which is the real theme of the book. I picked out these bits partly in order be most relevant to the Marx stuff and partly because I’m much, much more interested in labor power than I am in the philosophy of temporality}) = AMBROSIUS AURELIANUS (Geoffrey combined existing stories of AQ-287 MYRDDIN WYLLT (AQ-411 MERLINUS CALEDONENSIS), a northern madman with no connection to AQ-217 KING ARTHUR, with tales of the Romano-British war leader Ambrosius Aurelianus to form the composite figure he called AQ-323 MERLIN AMBROSIUS) = DIALEKTIK DER AUFKLÄRUNG = ECONOMIC GLOBALIZATION = HEGELIAN TRANSCENDENTAL = HYLETIC PROTENTIONS = IMMUNOCONTRACEPTION = NEW CONSUMER SPENDING = OVERTURNED HEXAGRAMS = PERPETUAL VIRGINITY = THE END OF SCIENCE FICTION = THE FRENCH REVOLUTION = THE PHANTOM OF THE OPERA = THE PRINCIPS ATHEORUM = THE RIDDLE OF THE SPHINX = THE STREET SENSE LEVEL = THE TALES OF BEEDLE THE BARD = THE WAY OF ANNIHILATION = TURNED-OVER HEXAGRAMS.

however: AQ-15244 {37×412=15244} = http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Algiers_Agreement_%281975%29 (%28 & %29 are characters for "(" + ")"; entered by mistake, GemCalc misreads percentage sign & returns invalid number, see: AQ-806 minus percentage sign; see: AQ-325 ALGIERS AGREEMENT (1975)).

don't know how that got to be AQ-15244, correct value (w/ percentage sign) is AQ-12977; but it gave me the idea of calculating AQ Thalweg: (max-min)/2. tried: 10, 37, 198, 206, 249 with 7326, 12977, 13012, 15244. AQ-198:

AQ 280 = NEGATIVE CAPITAL (Negative capital is a systemic phenomenon "in nature" without which the classical economic theory is both incomplete and notably ideological. Negative capital has been created, in part, because the industrialized nations have ignored or externalized the consequences of misusing the environment and nonrenewable resources over the past two centuries. It is the downside of the wealth that capitalism produces, and also its Achilles' heel. Negative capital is assumed away by pure market theory or it is simply not taken into account, which amounts to the same thing. Today negative capital takes different forms in rich and poor countries. With the former it is a consequence of heedless and unplanned overconsumption, some of which is now exported to the poorer nations as recyclables, garbage, hazardous material, and even radioactive waste. With the poor nations it may take the form of unsafe and unclean energy production processes; inadequate water, forest, and soil conservation; or unsound sewage disposal practices-all of which. can cause widespread health and environmental degradation.

AQ 703 = NEGATIVE CAPITAL AND THE WEALTH OF NATIONS (William W. Keller , Theodore J. Lowi & Gerry Gendlin, International Studies Perspectives, Volume 1 Issue 1, Pages 75-87 § ABSTRACT: The so-called global economy has generated tremendous international wealth inequality that only increases as globalization deepens. This process is capped by the failure of classical economic theory to incorporate such free market externalities as negative capital. Negative capital can be defined as situations, events, or environmental conditions that degrade or threaten to degrade the standard of living or life expectancy of great numbers of persons, including those living in wealthy nations. These problems cut across issues of sovereignty and security, economic development, and the environment. They can be monetized and have value because the rich will have to pay in order to mitigate them, whether at home or abroad. Payment can take many forms, but it will involve a politics of redistribution. Negative capital is a systemic phenomenon "in nature" without which the classical economic theory is both incomplete and notably ideological. A tamed and therefore enlightened free market, that recognizes and addresses negative capital, may be better equipped to resolve the situations created by its inherent inadequacies § Keywords: AQ-238 COMPETITION • AQ-476 ENVIRONMENTAL DEGRADATION • AQ-379 ECONOMIC DEVELOPMENT • AQ-294 ECONOMIC THEORY • AQ-385 FREE MARKET CAPITALISM • AQ-260 GLOBALIZATION • AQ-280 NEGATIVE CAPITAL • AQ-269 MONETIZATION • AQ-222 PUBLIC GOODS • AQ-370 RENEWABLE RESOURCES • AQ-441 REDISTRIBUTIVE POLICY • AQ-214 TECHNOLOGY § AQ-207, 214, 222, 238, 256, 260, 269, 280, 294, 307, 319, 346, 363, 370, 379 {2}, 381, 385, 428, 441, 454, 459, 470, 476, 523, 533, 568, 574, 578, 615, 634, 719, 788, 838, 898, 904, 1128, 1136, 1241, 1384, 1402, 1405, 1513, 1516, 1556, 1629, 1789 {2}, 1849, 1888, 1968, 2188, 2215, 2289, 2303, 2411, 2686 {2}, 3025, 3184, 3452, 3640, 3720, 3950, 4418) = CELTIC CULTURE: A HISTORICAL ENCYCLOPEDIA = STRANGE AND TERRIFYING NEW QUESTIONS (AQ-4952 A THOUSAND PLATEAUS IS A BOOK OF STRANGE AND TERRIFYING NEW QUESTIONS: "WHO DOES THE EARTH THINK IT IS?," "HOW DO YOU MAKE YOURSELF A BODY WITHOUT ORGANS?," "HOW DOES THE WAR-MACHINE WARD OFF THE APPARATUS OF CAPTURE OF THE STATE?"
