Typhoon Matsa (Lady Fish)

2 killed, another 2 missing as Typhoon Matsa hits Zhejiang

Typhoon Matsa kills one, affects 760,000 in Anhui

HANGZHOU, Aug. 7 (Xinhuanet) — Two people were killed and two others went missing in east China's Zhejiang Province, where typhoon Matsa made landfall in the wee hours of Saturday, the local government confirmed on Sunday. By 3:00 p.m. Saturday, the ninth typhoon of this year had affected a total of 8.4 million people, toppled 13,108 houses and caused 6.5 billion yuan (800 million US dollars) of direct losses in Zhejiang, the provincial flood control headquarters told Xinhua Sunday afternoon. It said the typhoon also destroyed 205,000 hectares of croplandand was to slash grain output by 241,000 tons at least.

Typhoon Matsa, the name of a fish in Laos [lady fish], shut down nearly 63,500 businesses, damaged roads and destroyed power transmission and communication facilities when it battered the eastern province on Saturday. Packing high winds and rainstorm, the typhoon destroyed 21 reservoirs, 221 kilometers of embankments and damaged a large number of other water resources facilities. Most part of the province reported heavy rain starting from Thursday. By Sunday morning, about 67 percent of the province had received more than 50 millimeters of rainfall. In Yongjia and Yueqing counties in the city of Wenzhou, the rain volume had exceeded 600 millimeters. Typhoon Matsa made landfall at Ganjiang town in Zhejiang Province at 3:40 a.m. Saturday, and moved northwest toward six major cities, including the provincial capital Wenzhou. It also lashed nearby Shanghai and obliged all flights to be canceled.

On Friday night, one worker at a construction site in Shanghai died and two others were injured when a shed tumbled in rainstormsthat heralded Matsa's coming. The typhoon trailed off into a tropical storm Saturday night and left Zhejiang Province. The neighboring provinces of Anhui and Jiangsu have beefed up safety inspection along dykes of local rivers and called back fishing vessels so as to minimize damages to be inflicted by the typhoon.

Genesis 2:20 And Adam gave names to all cattle, and to the fowl of the air, and to every beast of the field; but for Adam there was not found [Strong's #04672 :: MTzA = 131] an help meet for him.

Liber AL I:49. Abrogate are all rituals, all ordeals, all words and signs. Ra-Hoor-Khuit hath taken his seat in the East at the Equinox of the Gods; and let Asar be with Isa, who also are one. But they are not of me. Let Asar be the adorant, Isa the sufferer; Hoor in his secret name and splendour is the Lord initiating.

My disagreements with Levinas are several. His is a philosophical appropriation of the physical which is then annexed to serve a calculated moment in the narrative of philosophy viz. the reversal of the ontological relation as defined by Heidegger and the devaluation of Dasein. In this intellectual gesture we see the repetition of antecedents, most clearly that of Marx's reversal of Hegelian dialectic. What I find lacking in Levinas is the face's link to power, the face's part-production and exploitation by historical conjunction. It might be useful then, to contrast the Levinasian with the schizolinguistic face (as formulated by Deleuze and Guattari.) For the latter the face is conceived as a white wall-black hole system, less a unity than a multiplicity (of cavities, creases, apertures, pores, follicles) linked as requisite to certain assemblages of power. They further suggest that a primordial violence is entailed in the decoding of the face away from the body, a violence that would find itself prior to any facial epiphany. "The face is produced only when the head ceases to be a part of the body, when it ceases to be coded by the body, when it ceases to have a multidimensional, polyvocal corporeal code." (TP 170) This renders the face both product and close-up in its origin. For Deleuze and Guattari moreover it grounds the face in the inhuman. (Racism would be one such power-product.) Their speculative theorizing at the end of this splendid chapter leads them to a replacement of the face by the "probe-head."

Yea, the Da-sein of this spaced-out space was a real bitch. You could sweat, panic, scream, shout, stomp your feet like a good-old jackboot retro-arborescent. You could critique your pure practical reason but it didn’t do you no good. Better to surrender. The dice is cast immer und wieder. It’s time to wisen up punk, I said to myself.

Deleuze and Guattari call it a black hole. You enter the wrong attractor. The 60's were extremely destratifying, and yet, because they thought they were going to achieve everything within the 60's -- and what they wanted was not achievable, period -- fringes of this motion went into the wrong track. Then you have the Weathermen, completely pathetic terrorists blowing themselves up. That's that impatience and resentment that Deleuze and Guattari warn about. As they say, they key word here is not wisdom, but caution. You don't know what happens at bifurcations. You have absolutely no control. The smallest fluctuation can make things go wrong. The predictive power of humans and technology is nil near bifurcations. All you can do is approach carefully, because the last thing you want to do is get swallowed up by a chaotic attractor that's too huge in phase space. As Deleuze says, "Always keep a piece of fresh land with you at all times." Always keep a little spot where you can go back to sleep after a day of destratification. Always keep a small piece of territory, otherwise you'll go nuts.
