transformation problems are easy, LA at rush hour is hard (or, immanence = essence)

yesterday, spent an hour crawling through 12 miles of LA rush hour traffic. but hey, nothing beats downtown LA at sunset. 2½ hours got me to my local in-n-out & a timeout. so i finally see my new psychiatrist. funny, just saw Plankton trying to steal the secret formula again, playing fuzzy sweater beard freud to spongebob's krabby pattie neurosis. however, watching depressing docudramas on LMN didn't help. tim asks about Marx's transformation problem, so some light googling before driving to West Hollywood. gotta admit, wiki doesn't help much. this paper mentions Marx's thesis that labor is the immanent measure of value. surprisingly, only 81 links pop on "immanent measure of value". Capital Vol. I, Chapter Nineteen, Part VI: Wages:

That which comes directly face to face with the possessor of money on the market, is in fact not labour, but the labourer. What the latter sells is his labour-power. As soon as his labour actually begins, it has already ceased to belong to him; it can therefore no longer be sold by him. Labour is the substance, and the immanent measure of value, but has itself no value. [+]

quickly scanning links, get the idea something's hidden.

This immanent measure of value is hidden from the view of daily working of markets, from my or your experience as commodity sellers and buyers, because it is a property that emerges out of the continuous process of our interaction. Yet, it somehow fits with the experience of you and I being caught in a rat race to reproduce our livelihoods. And when we bring this reflection to the foreground, we realise that the disciplinary mechanism that create commodity values is at the same time the disciplinary mechanism that attributes value to the social actions that produced those commodities, that creates patterns of how we produce them, what we produce, how much we produce them, how we relate to each other in producing them, what system of needs we create, and how we distribute our social doing, our social labour across the social body. [+]

it's nothing?

The constant irruption of surplus value ex nihilo (aus Nichts: from the nothingness of capital) gives the reproduction of capital a very special qualitative physiognomy. [+]

starting to see Heidegger (nothing) + Marx (immanent measure of value) connection. 25-March-2002 lecture transcript, Don Mitchell @ Maxwell School of Citizenship & Public Affairs. lots of errors in the transcript; however, visualizing Mitchell's verbal flow+ebb (& the devilish glee he seems to get explaining things) provided kinetic groking. uncovering Marx's structure:

What are wages? How's that for a starting question? Page 501 ... Labour is the substance and the immanent measure of value, but has itself no value. Right? Labour power does, though. That's what is bought and sold. We all know what the value of labour power is. He makes an assumption -- he has been making assumption throughout this book that commodities trade at their value. He makes the assumption that commodities trade at their value throughout everything we have been talking about. Every once in awhile he relaxes that assumption. When he talks about wages, he relaxes that assumption in a big way. What's the point of talking about wages? What's this chapter -- what are these chapters on wages? It's part six wages. What's the part that they follow? You can look back in your book. Humor me by telling me. You can even look at the table of contents. Page 476, if anyone wants to look at it.

Student: Absolute And Relative Surplus-Value.

The Production Of Absolute And Relative Surplus Value. What follows it?

Student: Accumulation?

Accumulation, yeah. Of which we started to read some. The accumulation of capital. From the production of capital to the accumulation of capital. Right in-between that is a short section on wages. How come? [+]

later Mitchell describes Marx's spiral:

It's repetitive in a way it is more like a spiral. Starting with basic concepts and ideas and spinning out implications, using some key mediating ideas ... but then as it continues to spin out it spirals he says, the circle in which simple reproduction moves, alters its form and changes into a spiral, increasing spiral. And what that does is as he is pointing out at the end of the previous chapter is capitalist production produces not only commodities but produces and reproduces the capitalist relation, on the one side the capitalist on the other side the wage laborer. [+]

google :: "capital is nothing" (aka, big-fat-zero nothing, white man's juju not to be confused with Heidegger's The Hunting Down of the Nichtung).

The middle way depends upon understanding how what is 'nothing but' a social relation of production generates the objective real power over us because of inversion of subject and object. [+]

A nation is really rich only if no interest is paid for the use of capital; if the working day is only 6 hours rather than twelve. WEALTH IS DISPOSABLE TIME, AND NOTHING MORE. [+]

wow. hyperstition.

philosophical conversations: crisscrossing Marx and Heidegger (see also Jessica Rylan Interview: Sometimes I do feel this psychic connection with machines…)

Michael Eldred says in his Capital and Technology: Marx and Heidegger that the questions concerning the essence of capital and its relationship to the essence of technology need to be explored and that Marx and Heidegger touch each other in their respective thinking most intimately. Each of these thinkers has answered one of the two questions concerning the essence of capital and the essence of technology, but in different languages. The task is thus posed as a kind of labour of translation. [+]

Capital and Technology: Marx and Heidegger — Part 1: An Unsettling Encounter :: For readers of Heidegger it is striking that, during a career in thinking lasting more than fifty years, this thinker did not enter into any in-depth philosophical altercation with Marx.

According to Heidegger's own statements (which of course do not have to be taken as the final source of evidence), from 1937 on, at the time of writing the Contributions to Philosophy - From Enowning, the word 'propriation' or ‘enowning’ assumes a position as principal word in his thinking. The essence of technology is also thought through in the forties under the aura of propriation. In an unusual text from the fifties, Identity and Difference, whose unusual status among Heidegger's writings has been noticed by Gianni Vattimo[1], Heidegger talks of a twisting of the set-up into propriation, of the "sudden flash of propriation" within the set-up. In this text there is a sort of toggle relationship between the most extreme consummation of metaphysics and the twisting of metaphysics into propriation, in which humans would "lose" the determination of essence which metaphysics has "lent" them. Twisting (Verwindung), as Vattimo's pensiero débole elaborates, must not be confused with overcoming (Überwindung). In the small difference of a prefix there lies a subtle but decisive difference between Heideggerian thinking of being and metaphysical thinking. Twisting as well as overcoming relate to Western history. Whereas overcoming lies close to the Hegelian and a fortiori the Marxian conception of history, twisting or getting-over is supposed to initially indicate another type of thinking of history, namely, history as the history of being. “In the destiny of being there is never a mere sequence: now set-up, then world and thing, but in each case a passing-by and simultaneity of the early and the late.”[2] The difference twisting/overcoming will provide a second guiding thread in the following.

googling Michael Eldred i end with Lecture 10. seemed like a good place to stop since i'm about to enter into a conversation about being. took leather briefcase coz i needed something to keep release forms neat & tidy. shrugging why not? looking inside at my magickal notebook full of plastic wrapped color printouts. maybe i'll show them to the doctor. which i did. also a quickly sketched 220-919-827 timeline, which she wanted to copy. noticed slight tug-of-war as she looked at my disorganized folder. blue book with gold lettering: AUTISM. hey, aromatherapy, lit candle, lovely orchid (real, but the one in the little lobby is fake) & tea. .... you seem to be in this who am i, what is being, ontolo... — yes, the last five years have been the most intellectually challenging. (my brain cells are streeeeeeetched).

this was near UCLA. so got to see Federal & VA buildings & the LA National Cemetery (got beeped trying to read plaque at the corner of Sepulveda & Wilshire) [+][+][+].


uber uns kommen

pondering dread reading Heidegger's What is Metaphysics? .... what is it? ironically, the last few days been trying to get a hold of something. periodically ambulating to kitchen to formulate plan to reveal whatever it is that's percolating. shooting down lots of plans cos, if i can precisely formulate the question then aren't i presupposing the answer? reading WiM i'm going, that's it, that's it, that's it... Can there ever be a search without an anticipation, a search that would end in pure discovery? — but did not fully get dread (this was before finding out where i first read Auseinandersetzung).

Dread reveals the nothing ... Dread reveals open-ness ... So dread appears to be an arbitrary invention, and the nothing associated with it seems only a fantasy.

vaguely aware of Martin Heidegger when i did Landmark Forum — they're very big on creating from nothing. volunteering one day i discovered a quote book with a lot of Heidegger. this made me buy Being and Time that, unfortunately, put me to sleep. however, found a detailed synopsis online which helped. eventually developing my Daisen thesis (which makes no sense whatsoever reading it today; notepad file: 03.01.02-Thesis.txt).

Light can stream into the clearing, into its openness, and let brightness play with darkness in it. But light never first creates the clearing. Rather light presupposes it. However, the clearing, the open region, is not only free for brightness and darkness but also for resonance and echo, for sound and diminishing of sound. The clearing is the open region for everything that becomes present and absent (Heidegger, 1993).

Everything depends on the step back. — Martin Heidegger, "The Thing" [+]

Translate: "the clearing should not be identified with any of the entities that show up in it," 114.

Pretty easy, but tricky. One has to periodically do the recursive function to clean house. This is why post-modernism is not modernism: it is on-guard against "discovering" the One which supposedly causes the many. If anything the One is dynamic, temporal, & non-empirical; a field & not an item in it. Buddhism offers an interesting parallel. One of its tenants is that the self is a temporal conception & does not name anything essential or transcendental. The believer accepts this conceptually but continues to organize events in a utilitarian fashion, so they are beneficial to me. Or she becomes enthusiastic about helping others. The recursive Buddhist question asks who these others are that one is so devoted to helping? Ultimately they can only be temporal phenomena; karmic patterns temporally working themselves out so that they will dissolve. Language works analogously. It disrupts the silence & psychic equanimity. It temporally proceeds until it dissolves. It is literally the way (tao) that human beings exist. Consequently no item/theory that the process can focus on or propose could possible replace or substitute for the process. [+]

when i first read Heidegger i was unaware (or unconcerned) by the Nazi issue. my focus was on Dasein, lichtung, ereignis, aletheia, alethinos. i guess part of being african-american means assuming anglospherians (of a certain age) could be racist, anti-semitic &c. this doesn't stop you from reading them necessarily. in this case, i grew up with dogs with German names (one named after a tank), so i like the German. recently, i've become more aware, mostly because of Long Sunday, of Heidegger & Nazism (& also Carl Schmitt & Nishida Kitarô). in schneefälle i explore fascism & fasces. looking at it now, Klosterfriedhof im Schnee powerfully visualizes Heidegger's Germany of the 1930s.

while reading What is Metaphysics? googled dread + heidegger (ah, essential dread) & found Narcissism, Nationalism and Philosophy in Heidegger by Dr. Steven Segal (University of Technology, Sydney, Australia). & as i read In the Essay [What is Metaphysics], "dawning", as the basis of attunement to what-is, is made possible by a resolute (entschlossenheit) dwelling in anxiety — not by willing ourselves out of anxiety, but allowing ourselves to be "struck dumb"... i knew Heidegger's dread. when that spigot slowly turns i rush to stop the water flowing because it scares the shit outta me. (isn't it difficult to describe beforehand experiences to people? the blood between the legs, hearing "nigger" for the first time).

Segal describes the relationship between What is Metaphysics? ("The Essay"; Heidegger's inaugural lecture at Freiburg University) with The Self-Assertion of the German University ("The Address"; Heidegger's inaugural address at Freiburg University) & the difference between Heidegger's philosophy and his politics. the difference between an emergent dawning (uber uns kommen) & a political willing. don't know if i'm correct thinking this, seems to me Political Heidegger failed to actualize Philosophical Heidegger properly. can the so-called failures of some philosophers be fixed by a hyperstitional element? eg, The Hypersitional Heidegger.

Abstract: This paper contrasts the notion of "willing" in Heidegger's politics with the notion of "dawning" in Heidegger's philosophy. It argues that, in the political text, the attunement of Dasein to what-is is centred in the notion of Dasein's "willing" of what-is, while in the philosophical text it is centred in the notion of what-is "dawning" on Dasein. It maintains that the attitude to anxiety essential to a "dawning" of what-is is not reached in Heidegger's "The Self-Assertion of the German University". It concludes by maintaining that, rather than being attuned to what-is, the will in the "The Self-Assertion of the German University" is attuned to its own relationship to what is in a narcissistic rather than a philosophical way; that is, it territorializes "dawning" as a relation to "what is", and makes "dawning" of "what-is" its "own" in the same way as any nationalism makes a culture, a language or a geographical region its own. In contrast to the narcissism of nationalism, philosophy, as outlined by Heidegger in the essay "What Is Metaphysics?", is the experience of allowing what-is to "dawn" on Dasein rather than a preoccupation with "willing" of "dawning" as one's own relation to Being.

The difference between "dawning" ("uber uns kommen") and "willing" is, as I will maintain, a basis for conceptualising a difference between Heidegger's philosophy and his politics. Allowing what-is to dawn on us through being overcome by the strangeness of what is, is the basis of philosophy as an attunement to what is.

In the Essay [What is Metaphysics], "dawning", as the basis of attunement to what-is, is made possible by a resolute (entschlossenheit) dwelling in anxiety - not by willing ourselves out of anxiety, but allowing ourselves to be "struck dumb" (1948, p. 336) by dread. By being struck dumb by anxiety. Dasein is overcome by the strangeness of what-is and, by embracing the strangeness of what-is, Dasein finds itself in the midst of asking the question of what is [...] In the Essay, the crucial issue is to be able to embrace the nothingness of anxiety and strangeness. For Heidegger, the key to understanding this form of staying in the anxiety and strangeness is resolve (entschlossenheit). Resolve is, as Hubert Dreyfus maintains, the power of Dasein to stay in its powerlessness - rather than attempting to will itself out of its powerlessness or state of being struck dumb (1993, p. 319). It is as Dasein stays with its anxiety that what-is dawns upon it: "There where the danger is apprehended as the danger so the saving power grows". Heidegger is fond of quoting Holderlin. In this context, to be consistent with his philosophy, Heidegger ought to have encouraged the German people to dwell in their anxiety — in their danger and in the lostness of their will, so that they could apprehend themselves as living in the "danger" and "anxiety" of a lost will. For only as they dwell in and embrace the anxiety of their lostness do they prepare themselves for an attunement to their own situatedness, and it is only in their embracing of their own situatedness that what-is opens up to dawn on them. However, the more they will their attunement to what-is, the more what-is recedes into the background. And the more Heidegger can only call for a holding onto an image of an attunement to what is.

Like a psychotherapist, Heidegger needed to provide a "holding environment" through which the German people could stay with their danger and allow the saving power to grow by being attuned to the danger as the danger. But Heidegger failed in this regard. He attempted to will them out of their danger and, in so doing, confused the mirrored image of philosophy with the "authentic" activity of philosophising.

It is experienced as a normally unconscious, organic psychic feeling; and this feeling eludes standardization [...] the particular rhythm of a particular organic whole functioning truly as a whole and not merely as part of a larger whole").

Ferrell plays an IRS auditor who hears this voice in his head planning to kill him, the psychologist says it's schizophrenia but finally suggests Dustin Hoffman, a professor of literature. Hoffman's asking him a series of quick questions, are you the king of anything, yadda yadda, & finally says: "let's start with ridiculous & move backwards".

earlier, relocated Nicki Michaels' article on Dane Rudhyar's Approach to Cycles where i first learned about involutionary & evolutionary cycles. meant to add involutionary/evolutionary links to this entry. but by the time i finished reviewing notes & updating spreadsheets, too zonked to add. btw, i call it the purple speculum based on Wikipedia's 08-Nov POTD. had to figure out whether purple line was invo or evo, what is its relationship to red & blue lines, what are 256 Impulse-Entities &c &c. listolinks about Rudhyar, different folks talking about invo/evo & stuff:

10. Translator’s note. Heidegger’s translation of the Heraclitus fragment offers a key to his use of the word Auseinandersetzung, a word that is difficult to translate. Auseinandersetzung means confrontation, but by hyphenating the word (Aus-einander-setzung), Heidegger calls attention to its roots. Confrontation then comes to mean a “setting apart,” in which those who are thus set apart reveal themselves. This interpretation of what confrontation means should be kept in mind.

The spiritual strength of the West fails, its structure crumbles, this moribund semblance of a culture caves in and drags all powers into confusion, suffocating them in madness.... Whether or not this will happen depends on one thing: whether we [Germans], as a historical-spiritual people, will ourselves again. —Martin Heidegger, May 1933

In outline, the story of Heidegger and the Nazis concerns (l) a provincial, ultra conservative German nationalist and, at least from 1932 on, a Nazi sympathizer (2) who, three months after Hitler took power, became rector of Freiburg University, joined the NSDAP, and tried unsuccessfully to become the philosophical Führer of the Nazi movement, (3) who quit the rectorate in 1934 and quietly disassociated himself from some aspects of the Nazi party while remaining an enthusiastic supporter of its ideals, (4) who was dismissed from teaching in 1945, only to be reintegrated into the university in 1951, and who even after his death in 1976 continues to have an immense following in Europe and America [...] Heidegger's inaugural address as Rector Magnificus of Freiburg University (May 27, 1933) purported to assert the autonomy of the university against Nazi attempts at politicizing the sciences. However, it ominously celebrated the banishing of academic freedom and ended up as a dithyramb to "the greatness and glory" of the Hitler revolution ("the march our people has begun into its future history"), which Heidegger tried to combine with the goals of his own philosophy. The essence of the university, he says, is the "will to knowledge," which requires returning to the pre-Socratic origins of thought. But concretely that means unifying "science and German fate" and willing "the historical mission of the German Volk, a Volk that knows itself in its State"—all this within a spirituality "that is the power to preserve, in the deepest way, the strengths [of the Volk] which are rooted in soil and blood."

last version appears in Europe's Political Economy: A Discussion of its Economic and Political Theologies by Wolfgang Palaver, Chair of the Institute of Systematic Theology, University of Innsbruck:

Abstract :: Traditional forms of political economy provided solidarity by uniting people against a foreign enemy. This political friend-enemy distinction is rooted in a pagan type of political theology. Concepts of solidarity that are inclusive are an offspring of Biblical thinking and require a form of politics that relies on this theological foundation. In the political economy of the eucharist we can discover a solidarity without marginalization.

Fragment 53 footnote for—

René Girard's mimetic theory with its special focus on archaic religions helps us to understand Hesiod's political economy in a very profound way. Hesiod's goddess Eris resembles mimetic desire, by which Girards means a desire according to the other. Human beings desire what other people desire. Mimetic desire as competition, rivalry or emulation stimulates human activity and causes the increase of productivity. Like Eris, mimetic desire is not only a benevolent force but also has its destructive side. Envy or Hesiod's bad Eris is its malevolent form. Mimetic desire is both an emotion causing economic prosperity and an emotion leading to rivalry and violence between human beings. Not only Eris becomes comprehensible, also Hesiod's rule of justice can be explained with the help of mimetic theory. According to Girard, a mimetic crisis of mutual violence at the beginning of human civilization was resolved by a scapegoat mechanism that led to a religiously controlled cultural order. The sacrificial transformation of chaos into order through the scapegoat mechanism was driven by the same mimetic force that led into the crisis of envious rivalry. Driven by mimetic contagion archaic societies created order by killing or expelling one of its members. In the scapegoat mechanism we can discover the deeper source of Heraclitus's famous fragment of a war that is the father of all culture (cf. Girard, Violence 88).

Chapter 5, advice from a caterpillar Alice had a conversation with a caterpillar. She is dissatisfied with the fact she is only three inches tall. ~~~ Then it got down off the mushroom, and crawled away in the grass, merely remarking as it went, "One side will make you grow taller, and the other side will make you grow shorter." One side of WHAT? The other side of WHAT? thought Alice to herself. "Of the mushroom," said the Caterpillar, just as if she had asked it aloud; and in another moment it was out of sight. [+]

it is possible to formulate a model of the world based on perception as fundament without dismissing contradiction out of hand because of some bullshit scientific methodology or leaping down some futile stealthy agency rabbit hole. CAB | 11.11.06 - 4:33 pm | [+]

There are no apt words ... to characterize your state when you are, shall we say, 'bemushroomed.' ... How do you tell a man born blind what seeing is like? In the present case, this is especially true because superficially the bemushroomed man shows few of the objective symptoms of one intoxicated, drunk ... [the mushroom] permits you to see, more clearly than our pershing mortal eye can see, vistas beyond the horizons of this life, to travel backwards and forwards in time, even (as the Indians say) to know God. It is hardly surprising that your emotions are profoundly affected, and you feel that an indissoluble bond unites you with the others who have shared with you in the sacred agape .... [+]

 • The Lais of Marie de France
 • A Verse Translation ~ Judith P. Shoaf

Whoever gets knowledge from God, science,
and a talent for speech, eloquence,
Shouldn't shut up or hide away;
No, that person should gladly display.
When everyone hears about some great good
Then it flourishes as it should;
When folks praise it at full power,
Then the good deed's in full flower.
Among the ancients it was the tradition
(On this point we can quote Priscian)

AQ 395 = THE LAIS OF MARIE DE FRANCE = A MEDITATION UPON DEATH (thanatopsis) = CULTURALLY GENERATED (The problem is that Y2K scrambles the PoMo radar, discomfiting the by now cosy set of assumptions on which postmodern thought rests. Y2K is culturally-generated but it does not belong to "discourse"; it is a disaster, but it is entirely "unnatural". The notion of cultural construction to which PoMo is so attached has always carried with it the implicit idea that what has been constructed can be taken apart again. The assumption belongs to a pre-cybernetic opposition between Nature (as the realm of the given) and Culture (as the province of the mutable) that Y2K - like the cybernetic capitalism which has incubated it - is effectively dismantling. Y2K is no less of a catastrophe, and no less ineradicable, because it is totally artificial. —CCRU) = DISCARD INHIBITING IDEAS (And then it got a lot stranger. It became harder and harder to resist what he was saying, I don’t know why, it all fitted together, that the President was just a puppet, that civilians wouldn’t matter soon, stuff I knew was very wrong, unamerican, that it was time to discard inhibiting ideas, that we’d been misled about the nature of time, that the war was our god —Hyperstition: Renomu) = ELECTRONIC EQUIPMENT = IDENTIFIED IN HINDSIGHT (US Housing Bubble) [+] = SCHIZO-ANALYTIC LINES (I've already discussed in Pestis Solidus that dystopianist critiques or even a considerable part of schizo-analytic lines are easily trapped by Pythagorean 'metron' and its unconventional domestications or in this case 'scale of future' (as in science fiction dystopia) —Re: (hmm) Control and Mess Engineering, R. Negarestani) = THERE ARE NOW 11 BRETHREN (Abuldiz) = THORIAND STRIPED PINE = UNITES WITH CREATION (Stainless and pure shall my creation be. The sicles absolute motion unites with creation in a blinding noise, All forms as a blinding whole, to the creators true pity).
