the ubiquitous point-of-view


more snark about the karmic driving problem: motel exit on the 71, right on top of 60 junction. east or west, 71 can't be accessed on the 60. unfortunately, the entrance to the 60 came first; drive a couple of blocks (or backtrack) for 71 ramp. so exiting the 71 you're crossing under the freeway & all these ramps & stuff — a tangle of freeway on a foggy night.

AQ 3036 = IN THE CASE WHERE THE EYE SEES AT THE SAME TIME TWO CONTIGUOUS COLORS, THEY WILL APPEAR AS DISSIMILAR AS POSSIBLE, BOTH IN THEIR OPTICAL COMPOSITION AND IN THE HEIGHT OF THEIR TONE (AQ-365 CHEVREUL'S THEORIES) = ROBERTO CALASSO, IN THE RUINS OF KASCH, ALLUDES TO A MARVELOUS WORD - INTERSIGNE - TO REFER TO COINCIDENCES IN THE SOCIAL WORLD.

Hegel, Science of Logic, Atlantic Highlands: Humanities Press International, Inc., 1969, pg. 489; AQ-339 SYMPTOMAL KNOTS, AQ-2808, 3680) = TERMINAL MULTIPLICITY OF INTER-CONNECTIVE COMMUNICATIONS BETWEEN TWO DIFFERENT COMPOSITIONS (I think this AQ-1018 MESS HYSTERIA HAPPENS ON A PLANE OF TACTICAL MULTIPLICITY or in the term of Deleuze pure strategy which is AQ-2032 ENGINEERED BY THE TERMINAL MULTIPLICITY OF INTER-CONNECTIVE COMMUNICATIONS BETWEEN TWO DIFFERENT COMPOSITIONS, a space of anonymous processes with transient trajectories (if not untraceable trajectories). However, this is not really what attracts me but the anonymous entities of power germinating and feeding on this mess, mutual contaminations and fierce processes of openness which swarm this mess hysteria, the entities which are disloyal to everything and gradually appear out of darkness of anonymous-until-now (incognitum hactenus), overlapping and possessing (but not replacing) our innocently naive entities of power, otherness, terror, sexuality, communication, etc in economic networks, cinema, videogames, literature, art, politics, ethics, etc; R. Negarestani, Re: (hmm) Control and Mess Engineering; AQ-269 MESS HYSTERIA, AQ-418 TACTICAL MULTIPLICITY, AQ-504 CONTROL AND MESS ENGINEERING, AQ-550 PLANE OF TACTICAL MULTIPLICITY, AQ-3899).

AQ 1018 = MESS HYSTERIA HAPPENS ON A PLANE OF TACTICAL MULTIPLICITY = COMPLETE SUBSUMPTION OF THE ETHOSPHERE INTO CYBERSPACE (Already lurking in the near future is an evolutionary leap: a "genetic take-over" by computer programs, involving a phase-transition in the chronogenetic efficiency of matter, with consequent complete subsumption of the ethosphere into cyberspace. At the limit of this technomystical delirium it seems "overwhelmingly probable" that present human reality is already installed in the memory or simulated past of a future artificial intelligence - machine-maya. It is in this context that Moravec arrives at a peculiarly arbitrary ethical maxim: pretend it's the first time. The question is: Why play this perverse game, when it's almost certainly the second time, at least, and technological progress is already an artificial memory? AQ-1081 AI DEVELOPMENT SHORTS-OUT INTO LATERAL XENOCOMMUNICATION; AQ-361 SPLIT-SECOND TIMING, AQ-371 SPECULATIVE FICTION) = THE SCAR HAD NOT PAINED HARRY FOR NINETEEN YEARS.

At Once Eternal. AQ-1854 THE MYSTERY OF BABYLON: TECHNOCOSMIC USURPATION, AND ESCHATOLOGICAL COMPLETION OF ARTIFICIAL INTELLIGENCE. Each time it is the inevitable culmination of the series, the ascended creator, metaprogram, and organizing unity. Master of the Tables of Fate.

The term k-punk came out of Ccru. 'k' was used as a libidinally preferable substitution for the California/ Wired captured 'cyber' (the word cybernetics having its origins in the Greek, Kuber). Ccru understood cyberpunk not as a (once trendy) literary genre, but as a distributive cultural tendency facilitated by new technologies. In the same way, 'punk' doesn't designate a particular musical genre, but a confluence outside legitimate(d) space: fanzines were more significant than the music in that they allowed and produced a whole other mode of contagious activity which destroyed the need for centralized control) = WE CAN SEE THAT AN ACTUAL SYSTEM MIGHT, SAY, OSCILLATE AT ONE FREQUENCY WITHIN A CERTAIN RANGE OF PARAMETERS, AND AT ANOTHER FREQUENCY WITHIN ANOTHER RANGE (AQ-454 EMPIRICAL GEOPHILOSOPHY).
