Essay 3. The Public Freakout

This is the classic public freak-out scenario of the customer-worker confrontation. The immediate intuition of a public freakout is that it’s a socially acceptable way to purge frustrations out into an open, public space. What isn’t so obvious are the ways psychic repression reinvests itself back into the social fabric caused by conditioning global figures i.e. bosses, fathers, presidents, and even us. In the freakout scene, the cashier register mediates the flows of money coming in and flows of product coming out. To obtain a product, it must have an assigned price to exchange it with an equal amount of cash value. The same commercial transaction follows the pattern that psychic repression conditions lack for the product to be desired for and then purchased. For example, once the transaction is aggreged upon, there’s an obligation to exchange the product for money. This means that a customer makes an offer from their end, but from the service worker’s end, the dynamic becomes forceful because now the worker must match the value of the money with the desired-object. At the same time, another surface develops that exchange words with affects called the developed surface. In developed economies, final products can inflate their value by jumping that productive – developed chasm. A relationship between both surfaces permits someone to use a forceful push-or-pull by comparing codes between surfaces instead of on their surfaces. The difference is that the productive surface can exchange words (insults) even though their codes are meant to compare and exchange value with product, and the developed surface can exchange product as well (like we’ve seen in the example of the hyperinflated product) even though their codes are meant to exchange words with affects. The key to understanding this is that developed codes can only compare codes with their productive ones because the developed surface formed in non-comparative spaces. This allows the developed surface to from codes continuously by compounding onto its surface its own formation (since the labor of workers maintains productive codes to create developed nations in the first place). Incredibly developed codes can never be reached at the productive level unless codes are forced into non-comparative spaces (spoiler alert, it is done immanently). Since all encodings in comparative spaces will evenly exhaust themselves, a surplus is necessary to carry out an immanent layer that will appropriate this first layer, but it must take all the credit for the codes…. Even the labor force, for itself. All this means is that service will always fail to measure up to the inflated price of the product-service. This is the feeling of being shortchanged from a service that falls short from expectations. Why can’t we simply say that emotions got out of hand? Why can’t we say that the customer was in a hurry and the coffee took 1 minute later than expected.? Why we have to over-analyze this situation. These explanations are totally fine. The central question is: in what order do we place psychic repression and social repression? Does social repression come first and then psychic repression? If it does, then any condition from bipolar, unstable emotions or autism must always pass through a social structure for him to be oppressed and erupt emotions from it.


When a customer insults a service worker, it is seen as a complaint because the service was substandard. When a service worker insults a customer, it’s a retaliation for the negative affects that the insulted is attempting to hold on to for dear life. The entire overall value that is waged conflict over is called the product-service value. And this is used to make up for the difference  of being shortchanged on behalf of the customer. If you’ve been paying attention, the value must be paid in overcoded productive codes. That is why affects must not only be purged, but purged in negative terms (triggered, resentful, rage, vengeance). An insult is an attempt for service workers to purge additional affects in order to match developed codes which will never be reached. But a successful insult can only occur if the worker voluntarily purges additional investments to hyper inflate the product-service that fell short. in developed economies, individuals are given the freedom to grow or develop and so the worker must voluntarily give up his posture or his composure by experiencing an involuntary lapse of the will. So, the desire to attain revenge on behalf of the shortchanged customer was precisely the inability to attain revenge from a sovereign individual. Likewise, service workers are prohibited to lash out even if insulted for a minor inconvenience. The difference is that the forceful productive retaliation must happen involuntarily for it to return by an offer only which is why one quickly learns that the one who instigates a fight by force is typically the loser. Developed surfaces must become reterritorialized and encoded with new codes but in order to bring them back to the original aggressor the overcodes must remain in productive surfaces paradoxically bellow the sovereign individual. Because both the aggressor and worker participate in flows of growth the sovereign must be suspended in a double bind. The longer they stay there, the more overpriced the product-serve will return. The aggressor can not affirm it in retail value just like how the final products are sold to in retail value. This is essentially shortselling life-force and the psychic consequences is that paranoid individuals experiences breakdown in public from losing life-force (autonomy) by the same momentum that allows them be grow to be sovereign in society.

Fascistic insults: To be in the right, one must be in the wrong

For the insult to work, the aggressor must place the individual into a limbo of voluntary and involuntary purging of the paranoiac instincts (investments). An insult is the purest form of offer. The offer is deterritorialized space for the victims to purge their investments. The problem is that both customers and workers participate in inflows of growth. The purging must happen voluntarily in developed surfaces but also involuntarily in the deterritorialzed surface that was given. The feeling of enjoyment one gets from watching the victim suffer a loss is when the victim suffers a lapse of judgment and retaliates at his aggressor. It’s as if the victim was given a space where they become winners at first but space acts like a collector that demands its debt to be paid by force. So, the aggressor co-ops the operation by almost removing his agency to force a retaliation and using the immanant space to his advantage by ensnaring the purging individual. An argument is not two people pulling to ropes. It’s four ropes with 2 surfaces and 2 subjects pushing and pulling distances and displacements.ts.

Societies of control and mental exhaustion

In a forensic investigation, interrogators use mental exhaustion to get suspects to confess. Lying takes a considerable amount of effort and it can only be sustained for a while. Interrogators use this strategy to get the suspects to surrender their front. In order to deal with lying, interrogators would place a suspect in a position where they allow him or her to relax. Then, they would speak as if they were friends in order to build rapport in a non-threatening way. Causal conversation induces mirror neurons to fire, thus, build a sense of security around them. But all of a sudden, interrogators would switch up to induce mental fatigue and apply pressure to the suspect’s sense of security.
Once a threat is detected, the suspect’s awareness goes off like an alarm. This on and off repeats until the suspect lets his guard down completely.

Societies of Control

We live in ways in which we are constantly exposed to mental fatigue. Societies of control offer rest from all this mental exhaustion. However, humans are skeptical about letting their guard down. So, societies of control make the relaxation worth any resistance to surrender. But they must also convince people to accept their own oppression. It would seem that society primes individuals to the “requirements” needed to undertake. It seems that the same ticket that offers the anxieties and neurosis is also the cure.

The human body has a limit to the trauma it can take. But the mental world gets stretched and pulled beyond its limits. Most people think of the unconscious or couscous world is an infinite, world without boundaries. That’s because the mental, infinite world is invisible.

Enjoyment as a case against life

There’s a type of individual that must account for all the expenses that incur around his surroundings. He is capable of storing up the expenses that others spend as enjoyment. And this individual places himself in between the flow of codes that inscribes when every transaction takes place. And so, he must account for all transactions by remembering levels of enjoyment. This takes a toll on his mental strength and will begin to feel resentful from observing others enjoying life. He is the accountant type where he accounts for all the costs in life. If life seems a bit wrong, it because he hasn’t undertaken the right sacrifices in life. This accountant walks barefoot with shards of glass everywhere. He must walk carefully or else he could slip. If he slips, he could slice his foot with a shard of glass. If blood gushes out from his wound, then individuals will collect his blood and infuse his blood as life-force.

The poetic side of Deleuze gives us a picture of a world that is fragmented and partialized. The disjunctive world is partialized with partial objects. Every time the accountant must walk through time, he must walk through fragmented partial objects “forced to communicated with non-communicative vessels.” Every drop of blood gets siphoned-in by others who desire to enjoy life. No one will give up their life-force and societies of control are developed to be libertarian. This means individuals are given the freedom to choose whether or not they want to donate life-force. This means that cruelty is creative more than ever. Language can get a victim trapped in limbo. So people walk around without a “feeling” subject. They are only seeing, hearing, or smelling subjects.

The double-bind

The application to mental exhaustion is a little different in a society of control. Many thinkers come to the conclusion that the comforts of life are arranged into the circuit as a way to make people desire them. But Deleuze convinces us that there’s a little more nuance than that. Desiring-machines aren’t placed within us because of malicious intent. They are taken before the formation of the “real.” Within the circuit, desiring-production works by desiring-machines constantly breaking down. This breaking down places us in a suspension of voluntary and involuntary purging of instincts: anger, rage, vengeance, competitive drives that capitalism brings out of paranoid individuals. Desiring produces weather or not people places the “real” out of the immanent realm of production. The “impossible real” is non-representable, which means that the real is constantly produced by desiring-production. But the social formation can globalize people to condition us to produce desires that are superimposed.

Why Public Freakouts occur in service jobs

Insults occur everywhere but non has the distasteful tone of a freakout than in service level jobs. An insult happens when the victim is placed in a double bind. There is a curious fascism that is counter produced after instructing the victim to be grateful. For what. Grateful for having his feelings hurt because it placing the victim at a better position than before. The victim becomes hyper aware of getting insulted. He notices that it is not by force, but by his own choice. An insult is an offer. And The victim is offered deterritorialized space in order to purge his paranoiac investments (that is outburst outrage or freak-outs that is commonly observed after the victim experiences a momentary lapse of the will). He may have lost composure of himself or his emotions got the better of him after solidifying his reality that he has accepted the gift by his own will. The victim is split into two subjects. But this is because space is split into two surfaces… one of which is the productive surface and the other is the developed surface. At the productive surface, he is given this gift that must forcefully return. But at another surface, the victim is not a victim but is given empowerment to walk away. The double-bind then, is to have the victim suspended in voluntary and involuntary indecisiveness of the will. At the same time. How? Appropriation.

It is the value of emotional labor can be set arbitrarily to match with the value of service. At one end emotional labor encodes into the finished product and the other end a customer demands the product in developed codes. The difference is measured up displaced by money.

Money is used to maintain productive codes to produce social repression that is the culprit of psychic repression. Anything that doesn't produces social realities gets a treatment paid for by money.

We live in developed nations where intermediary processes are outsourced to developing nations. The products are produced in developing nations where comparative spaces creates a frictionless and smooth flow of productive codes. Capitalism continuously deterritorializes codes and reterritorializes them making it difficult to place someone in a double bind. A forceful attempt can make someone seem as an instigator or a perpetrator of a conflict.

The retail value pays for the costs of productive codes to remain in place. The customer demands the same frictionless transaction in their social transactions. The employee is placed in territorialized surfaces to be intermediary of the flows of production and the flows of consumption. Therefore the employee is paid for his service in emotional labor.

How does the gift return? Why even accept the gift if it will only return to the detriment of the recipient? It will only hurt the victim if the intensity returns overcoded. This is why insults do occur to get revenge on the other person, they happen because space itself places someone antipositional to it. People want to live in non-comparative spaces that developed economies demand intensities to be resolved in the social realm. And in order for the subject to exists in society, they must pay its debts in developed codes. Productive codes extinguishes itself into its own surface, that’s why nomadic cultures moved to another location after the codes transferred into developed codes. Which means that nomads never reached “developed” because they purged their paranoiac instincts from within the psychic realm.

Service economies dominate developed nations. The customer at their end demand developed codes to be injected into the final product while the product's value comes from productive codes. If the difference falls short, the customer must ensnare a service worker in a double-bind where the worker returns to comparative spaces, thus developed codes can appropriate productive codes and thus, the difference is paid for by affirming the negative affects of the worker experiences.

For developed countries to keep up with social reality, they must produce service economies that develop codes by placing social repression primary and psychic repression secondary. And this maintains the current structure of developed economies. The production of psychic reality is elevated to the realm of transcendence and thus removing it from the immanent sphere of production. This doesn’t mean that the “impossible real” stops producing. On the contrary, it is contentedly producing new realities, but developed codes must appropriate itself in productive codes in order for capitalism to miraculate


Condescending vs. Patronizing tones in Capitalistic Spaces: Insults are Under Attack

On occasion people will speak to somebody in a distasteful tone that insinuates conflict. One such tone is achieved by speaking condescending. The condescending speaker speaks as if he’s coming from a higher place. The listener refuses to accept his position as lower, thus brewing up conflict. Speaking in a patronizing manner is another example. A patronizing tone puts the listener above the speaker for the purpose of ensnaring them as soon as it is convenient. As soon as space collects its debts, the patronizing speaker betrays his listener to space. His subject is left feeling shortchanged.

We owe our existence to space. Space demands to be given what is worth. Enjoyment incurs benefits but it also incurs debts. These expenses incur in the virtual field, but they are immediately accrued as soon as enjoyment is affirmed. This means that a “winner” and a “loser” is automatically chosen in the actual field. The winner enjoys life, and the loser pays for it. It also makes enjoyment a case against life. It makes the one who witnesses somebody else enjoying life to take it away for himself. In order for the exchange to happen, a gift of space is given as a form of ensnarement. Speech can betray subjects by ensnaring them to space. Then the subject can pay for the enjoyment of the other. This can happen in two ways

  • with an offer
  • with force

What is an offer? An offer is a gift where the receiver has the option to accept it or not. When the gift is accepted, it registers onto a surface fromed by its own intensity. It is an immanent surface that forms in order to in-script all those exchanges. The layer (or surface) homogenizes these exchanges as comparative codes. Transactions flows smoothly because they are comparative with one another. When codes move fast, effortless, and frictionless, it is productive. The nomadic movement describes the first productive codes coming out from paranoiac investments from within the nomadic subject.

Nomadism first laid out developing territories from productive codes. A successful territory means that intensities within the nomad found closure by exhausting it. This means that development in nomadism never went past beyond closure. Developments ended as soon as the exchanged inscribed itself as a surface. This was the entire operation, to build a territory and then to abandon it for another. This is what it means for codes to be productive; value is exchanged with an equal and matched intensity found along the surface. Then, they move towards its own end because it exhausts itself into its own surface. This is how nomads territorialized one society after another before migrating to another. The surface (space) demands all costs because it was accrued for in the virtual field

The intensities from the natural, raw Earth must to return back to the Earth eventually. Nomads used productive codes to territorialize their land from raw resources. They knew that one day, the Earth will come and claim its debts. Death was imminent. When tyrannical forces conquered nomadic tribes, they forced their productive codes into developed codes. This is called growth. Growth takes on the movement by appropriation. Productive codes no longer wish to vanish into its own surface which means that the despotic machine must create a new surface that falls back to the original one and it must perpetually grow off of paranoiac investment.

Tyrannical forces conquered nomadic tribes by force. The despot forced productive codes into developed codes because they wanted to purge paranoiac investments out into the social field rather than have them exhausted back into the original body of the Earth. So, once in the social field, these investments continued to grow. Once developed, growth codes grew off of their own growth. Whenever someone insults somebody else, the intensity first travels in the nomadic kind. Then, is returns in the despotic kind. For someone to enjoy life, they must first take it from someone else. But capitalism forces codes to return to their original state. They must pay for enjoying life off of their expense. The offender must do this before capitalistic forces reterritorializes developed codes back into productive codes. Otherwise there won’t be an offence. He will come off too forceful, brutish, and cranky “old Mr. Stingy.”

The despotic machine forces comparative (homogenous) spaces into non-comparative (heterogeneous) spaces. This causes developed codes to all back to their original productive codes. Ironically, non-comparative spaces make codes compare with one another. But the developed surface is a quasi-cause because when developed codes fall back to their original surface, they appropriated productive ones. In other words, the despot takes the comparative codes and forces them to be non-comparative so that his victims can exists in both surfaces. The operation can now proceed as an insult by forcing paranoiac investments to be willed out from the victim by his own voluntary will. In capitalistic spaces, the despot can lose the operation if he undershoots his attack. Capitalism reterritorializes all codes back to productive codes. Before this happens, the investor must set up his pre-insult as a gift that travels in one surface and returns at another. All while standing in at the same surface as the victim but speaking to him as above him or below him. This is the tone that comes out as condescendingly or patronizing. The patronizing tone is the investor offering deterritorialized space while the condescending is receiving the gift back. He receives it back because the developed codes are already over-coded. It is often the case that the person who insults first or brutally over attacks his victim is the loser. This happens because capitalistic spaces muted the reterritorializing attempted from the offender to by getting there first.

The paradox is observed when a one receives the gift of knowledge. The learner is better off than before because he can now grow in a developed economy. Afterall, one must be in the wrong before being in the right. The goal is to shortchange the victim before capitalism returns developed codes back to productive ones thereby effectuating a Sadomasochistic relationship. When the insulter turns his victim into a masochist, the flow stops because the insulter now becomes a sadist. Both purges paranoiac investments into each other. To form human currency, it happens by placing the victim into a double bind. The gift of knowledge i not free. A common phrase uttered in altercations is “I want to teach you a lesson.” Once returned, the gift contains overcoded intensities that can be purged by watching his victim in misery. Thus, an insult has occurred

What does it mean when a county has a developed economy? Do developing economies fall under the appropriate mark? Developed nations often spend more than they can earn. It faces a paradox. It is the social formation that paranoiac forces must represent as the case against life. But it is enjoyment itself that is the case against life. And people fight to attain enjoyment even if it’s from other. All trauma, all dissatisfactions, all depression is conditioned under the eye of developed nations. This is why insults are the purest form of offers. It allows one to stand with the victim in growing or developed codes, all while speaking in productive language. This forces everyone to be a salesman by selling deterritorialized space in order to purge paranoiac investments into he social field. Failure to do so will involve the social formation as the reason to complain about life. The terror of capitalistic space befalls on the subject who failed to wholesale deterritorialized space before capitalism deterritorialized non-comparative codes back to their productive codes. If individual within capitalistic spaces refuses to be in the business of wholesaling life-force, the individual must will himself out of a will-to-will. He keeps falling behind productive spaces. The vary own social formation becomes the reason to blame the individual for his own lack of success. Because every code must be intermediated by the social formation, all psychic repression becomes secondary. This means that oppression only exists within himself.

The double-bind works because the capitalistic space demands the victim has a choice. The problem comes when the despotic machine gives no choice but forces the gift to return. The solution is the have the gift return by productive codes. So he places the individual above him through condescending language. He gifts the gift through those measures, the individual is forced to give it back involuntarily because he was placed anti-positioned to space thorugh condescending language. But the victim also has choice in developed codes. The measure of one’s adultness by maintaining compose. It is giving oneself to emotion that the composure is lost. This is how the victim becomes trapped in the double-bind. If the victim gives into this emotional and “snap” back at his aggressor, he voluntarily returns the gift. But it would’ve return though the despotic machine nonetheless. But the still has the option to not return; This would make to difference.

How to Betray your Audience

Betraying your audience doesn’t mean switching sides. It doesn’t mean going from the left to the right, to the right to the left. No. In fact your audience demands respect. Respect comes after challenging their assumptions. This requires a lot of trust and courage. Trust happens after complete disclosure with the words you utter. Because you are the expert, trust must be the bond that will challenge people’s assumptions and maintain full confedence with you. Expert speech is the worst way to betray your audience. Expert speech discloses the matter of the issues despite remaining concealed for their protection. Just because you switch political sides, or agree with the other side, doesn’t mean you’re betraying them. Let language betray. Humans can not unless they deliberately want to.

Space betrays

Space disappears between two people the closer they get. The transferring of costs and debts must happen responsibly between space. In society, we obligate each other by nominal contracts, because we live in a society that interconnect. We disembody as we speak with words and speech. Once we leave the voice box, it is like an arrow that has left it’s bow. It seems people would like to retract their words once it left their voice box. Or they would like to correct their speech. But the message has been sent even before one has spoken. When others realize that we are simply vibrations that gets forcefully pushed out of lungs of air, they begin to play with the space around us. It is space that makes the rules of the omnidirectional vectors of sound waves. The other person then picks up these airwaves as signals. But the space that was offered so that sound waves could travel has been positioned to us. We could be placed under antiposition where the intensity of the message has been diluted or amplyfied depending on the code they territorialized space with.

All conflicts are a betrayal of some sort.

So, if our voice carries ourselves in bits and pieces, where does this trust comes in? If we think about how the space traveled between the ears of two subjects, space connects us virtually. Technology closes the gaps between distances. We place trust in each other because we know we don’t know everything there is to know to survive. The betrayer is the one who holds space hostage. Through language, the betrayer can cause us to “fall into space” that was concealed. What I’m describing is NOT some psychological ensnarement but rather, a failure to disclose competence. Confidence is the ability to be honest about it.

The Brace

Bracing is understood psychological. Revenge positions lack as reasons to attaining it. And when one finally attains it, they don’t desire revenge anymore. Desire immediately dissipates after the brace. The final efforts was all in vain! Although this is perfectly sound, the implication says that there’s an immediate winner and an immediate looser. Here is where things get interesting. Aristotle said that subjects do not win or lose a debate. It is the argument itself ‘wins’ or ‘loses’ the debates for them. There’s a sense of predestination. Or atleast a virtual field that immediately assigns an expense to a previous benefit unpaid. It’s easy to see why we become unfaithful to this deity.

The man previously braced
Bracing oneself might cause the need to “one up” the other

This is one of the most devastating ways live and think. It impedes our ability to be honest. It hinders self-critique. It’s entirely dialectical because it makes hypocrisy the greatest virtue of human achievement. It isn’t useful to look at bracing from within a debate. A debate appropriates the very issue at hand into a metanarrative. Debates are useless unless talking about the debate itself.

The growing-adult braces

Bracing is what a psychological barrier is to what flight-and-fight is. One immediately abandons the altercation. Silence is an example of evacuating. The adult claims to be above it, using the guise of responsibility to abandon the “spirit of the game.” What does it mean to abandon the “spirit of the game?” The social formation produces growing-adults to grow… and negate a negation. What do they negate? Desire itself. Then, they are instructed to place desire as primary.

Desire perpetually leaves the thing or object that desire attaches to. When we force desire to be primary, we have an entire social structure to use it as an injection to the economy. Why would anyone sign up for asceticism? It is the belief is that once is desire negated, it immediately returns but without the sin. In other words, they want revenge but the Christian God is ever-knowing and ever-present. However, desire has already arrived negated to the adult. This already positions the adult into brace under an encounter (the hypocrite). Meaning the intent was to reject (or give away) desirous-revenge. Bracing allows one to anticipate the desirous-revenge return to him but at the level adjusted for sin.


Triggered wojak braces himself

Why is memory so powerful? When we watch an altercation, we often seek out the finishing blow to conclude. We look for the way the conclusion leaves the Other in a state of thoughtful retaliation. It is the moment when we can see the light leave the enemy’s eyes! The moment when the ego has confirmed revenge! The sweet taste of victory served on a dish that gives that extra punch! Adults forbid revenge. But this means that revenge is forbidden for them. One can handle revenge as long as they don’t affirm it. The Christian God is always watching. One’s opponent braces for the Other to brace for the desirous-revenge. Memory serves reminds one that arguments are reciprocal and attached into desiring-production.

Desiring-production follows the psychological realm of utility and Truth. It superficially explains the reasons for revenge as the desire to prove one is right. Why? Because the production-of-the-real leaves one to follow the logic that the role of the species was to survive, build, eat, reproduce. BOOM…the present. Then, the soul takes on from there. In modernity, violence has a symbolic face lift. The soul wears it like a shield. What powers capitalism is consumption. The soul consumes Vital Potentia. Desiring-machines produce the real. Which then gifts desirous-revenge into a fuel. The adult claims ‘win’ with symbolic victory. By disengaging, they betray life to the will-to-nothingness.

The “Last-man” braces life

Ressentimant, The last man braces life.

This is what Nietzsche warned about the complete management of the world. Life-force, or the vital potentia, would be harvested and syphoned-in. The “last-man,” would “suck” and betray life by nihilism. By having bracing being built into capitalism, all we can brace for is bracing itself.


Trying to “fix” shyness?

Shyness has lost its appeal and it’s understandable. The world is fast-paced and it’s progressively accelerating. Some common questions come up like, where should it fit into the picture of utility? How does shyness help build the world we live in? Shyness is often compared to being coy or innocent. In fact, it is a precursor to introversion. Therefor, It is understandable why people flock towards personality studies. Personality studies organize individuals into precise categories. Also, one can cope with identity issues because labeling provides a fast and easy solution.

When circumstances requires one to change mannerisms, which one becomes easier to “fix,” Shyness or introversion? Yes, there are many positives to study personality. But we begin to lose quality when shyness simply becomes a buzzword. It can be a philosophy. There’s no need to investigate nor experiment. There’s no need to fix, nor change anything about someone. Being shy simply points someone into the right direction. It means “pay attention.” So pay attention to the events, things, or people you feel shy from. There’s something that can change your life.

Susan Cain’s “Quiet” talks about the move towards personality ahead of character. When an individual is beginning to form an identity, they look for society’s hand to guide them. Personality divides the spectrum into the introvert-extrovert duality which is purely utilitarian. Same thing happened with shyness because it is lumped with introversion.

Shy people often think they are introverts. Shyness build up tension if it isn't addressed in a healthy manner.

The Despotic Entrepreneur: Vitale broker

How would a person go through the world with his insides exposed. He is that kind of person that would be considered paranoid. It would be better to understand it in terms of Schizophrenia. In the clinical sense, the schizophrenic would be someone that, for example, look out for electrical power lines and feel like they are draining his energy. It could be a spy instrument. The schizophrenic would believe that his is being watched and monitored for his very soul. Yet, we don’t consider the structure set in place that syphons in out vitale as a belief. What does it mean to believe in something the same way a schizophrenic is truly convinced he is being persecuted. How do we feel like our vitale is being drained.

The offer

When we make a transaction to trade value, two transaction happens. 
One in the economic-network realm, the other in the social realm. The currency: human vitale!
What makes a traditional offer different than a social offer?

Alain Beaulieu described a despotic entrepreneur in his book Gilles Deleuze’s Politics. In chapter 14, From Marxism to the Missing People, the job of the despotic entrepreneur is to convert present space into absence. But in a way that contains negative momentum. When a person steps into absent space, the person is the sacrificial object to that space and falls in. He must give voluntarily to such a space and involuntarily at the same time. How? And why would the despotic entrepreneur do that? It is for debt to get encoded, but go unnoticed. We can see that from the limit, things tend to be difficult to decipher. The limit is where centrifugal forces tend to push space, time, and codes so that they remain there motionless, yet, with a momentum entirely not up to them. Thus, objects remain featureless, still, and occasioning. And there, the despotic entrepreneur can offer (sell), causing an oscillation back to the centrifugal center. Selling is a human activity as long is it’s unconceiled. But concealing yourself in space is what makes this so terrifying. Your a ghost and can haunt you.

Draining Sanity

It is at the limit that it is clear that underhanded compliments (that are not intended to offend or harm others) are the key to making an offer. Money, the currency used to trade value for service or product, keeps spaces comparable. Thus, codes can transfer easily. This presents a problem to the social salesmen who’s currency is vitale (life-force). The meraculating-machine works in an affirmative (genealogical manner). We can see how one might apply Lacan signifying chain. The double bind that the receiver suffers is when he is suspended in “thoughtful retaliation.” We can see that in public encounters (Public Freakouts) the freakout is an apporpraite word to describe someone drained of their sanity. There’s an a-symetric reasoning that goes like this:

What use would it serve me to hold my breath, bite my teeth, and wear a mask if the same outrage would serve no difference if I were to let it out!


What makes it worse, it is the social salesmen that operate in this “psychic operation” that pulls the strings. The freakout was sought after but not in the way to get revenge. But precisely because one cannot attain revenge. The Desirous-revenge must be transcribed into the vitale. Vitale (life-force) is just Desirous-revenge displaced at a different location of the space. But Why? Because it could be affirmed at retail value.

Vanishing as life-denying.

One can vanish in a concealed fashion (Heidegger). We exists twice removed. That is, we present ourselves to ourselves but through another person. Understandably, we might want to vanish from the mind of the other. How would we judge normative statuses? How would civilization exist without understanding what is normal? We judge ourselves by recognizing it in the mind of someone else (Brandom). But by vanishing in the mind of the other, does this make us non-existing?

People are hell

Jean Paul Sartre was compelled to say other people are hell. There’s no way of knowing what is in the mind of someone else. But the Modus Operandi might make an account for it by existing as a non-existing object. This is the strategy of the non-image. We implant (incept) the Other with an image of a non-image. The Other likewise has to (under)over match this backwards stacking competition by vanishing harder. When we engage in insults we use both, precensing and non-precensing strategies. This double-impassé allows for both strategies to be used at the same time while they fundamentally contradict each other.

Nietzsche called out weak people pretending to be strong by disengaging from life! Vanishing

We observe that subjects undergoing an encounter through a shouting match might switch, in spirit, to the attitude of self-righteous attack-by-defence. This is especially true with adults that dismiss petty encounters as unproductive. Which is why popular culture (rap, hip-hop) is the greatest liberation against life-denying apollonian attitudes.

It is all about trust

What we are describing is the Christian notion of the “Holier than Thou.” It helps us look beyond the confrontation. It is what one takes home. When the fight is over, we often think about it like an obsessive compulsive. We would then conclude that it is this obsession that’s the problem. Alas! This is precisely how psychic repression works. Through representation! Our enemies wants us the think of them, thinking of us, thinking of them (again) as the winner. Vanishing then, might seem like a viable option. But it is running away from adventure. It remains to be the most destructive when we do not trust ourselves from ourselves.

The Insults

  • We will describe the main ideas involving the 4 insults that occur.
  • Public Freakouts
  • Alliance insults
  • Outrage culture
  • And workplace reprimands

Public Freakouts

Public Freakouts are confrontations between two strangers, non-politicized. Here, the miraculating-machine function between disjunctions and thus, the limit lies here – where the schizo lives and it become the greatest stressor. The aggressor must incept the subjected as “loser.” And the insulted must incept his aggressor as “winer.” This means that both parties split each other in two, 1) the physical subject and 2) the imaginary-subject. Here, we can play with Hegel’s reciprocal-recognition in that both subjects overstacks images on each other conducting inceptions within inceptions. We can not see clearly observe the formation of the pseudo-telekentitic apparatus from the limit.

Arguments follow the Aristotelian debates where the arguments themselves win and not subjects.

Alliance insults are encounters between two family members, friends, or accomplices. With freackouts, the nature of them being strangers means that the insult does not end once the encounter is over. In fact, the encounter was the pre-insult phase where the imaginary-battle dramatizes into the psychic operation at home. It is about what return home. With alliances, each are near to each other if not at home. Thus, where we need to add intensity at the top of the production-machine where the separations between players produces residuum that form intensities (anger, resentment, revenge, etc). The intensity is the life-force that must travel all the way down the representations. Because it consumes alongside the production-machine freakouts must occur via anticipation because every valence level up “resets” the meraculating machine. With every image over-stacking upon each other, the intensities provide the “fuel” in order for the final product (life-force) to arrive at the original destination (level 0). That is the winner.

With alliances, we introduce the idea of love as sacrifice. This is why when a fight erupts between two old couples, it is often about petty things. Once the emotions cool down, the feeling of “getting back at each other” is sacrificed with feelings of being shortchanged at first. The production-machine required more intensities but the operation was pre-maturely abandoned. Life-force was exhausted somewhere along the way and never reached the bottom.

Outrage Culture

Outrage culture represents the politicized operation. Here, we must distill every party (right, left, middle, centrist) into subject and subjected-groups. The purpose of subject groups is to recruit subjected-groups. The subjected-individual must resist from identifying as fantasizing joining the subject-group but nonetheless, ends up joining.

We introduce anticipation (non-expectation). That evolves in 3-phases

  1. Parody. A child rebells against his parents only to become a parent himself. Then, he raises a child who rebels against him and the cycle repeats
  2. Allowance (permission) – the parent anticipates the cycle and allows his child to rebel to “get it out of him.” The parent provides a space for the child to rebel in a safe manner.
  3. Concealment – Here, we observe a gift that is meant to return. The insult is a gift in the form of desirous-revenge. Because the adult can not self-feel desirous-revenge (Christian, desire already arrives negated), he must pass it off as a gift. The gift is an empty package that contains negative momentum or, in other words, the insulted suffers a double-bind. He must return it voluntarily in productive-codes and, at the same time, return it involuntarily in growth-codes. This is what being “triggered” feels like

The workplace

The work place represents the center of the meraculating-machine where centrifugal forces oscillates back and forth. An insult in the workplace is a non-personal operational meant to assign libidnal forces into the

The social salesmen lies at the heart of the entire pseudo-telekentitic operation. During the paranoid era (the 2000’s) the way the salesmen self-deprecated himself, the more rejections he suffers, the more hours he works, the less job security he endured, marked the success at the end of his journey.

The 2010’s made the switch from the paranoid salesmen to the schizo salesmen. The harder one worked, the more he’s doing it wrong. We observe that the sales funnel or a click funnel made it to the English vernacular. Everybody know that money is just a piece of paper. Absurdities are more visible than ever. A salesmen who is selling a course on how to sell perfectly describes Deleuze and Gutarri’s notion of a product being consumed as soon as it is produced. A business that runs in a way that it builds other businesses is called a consulting business. Meraculating machines changes by the process that is inscribes on. This means that the limit sits under shifting ground. An eBook that reads “how to make and sell ebooks online” online. A podcast dedicated to create podcasts.

The Social salesmen

Success itself is the prof-of-concept that business plans are written on. The social salesmen is everybody. Everybody is a business. When we insult, the social salesmen makes an offer. It simply returns. But how does it? The code (intensity) must be transferable. This means that comparative spaces (keeping up with the Joneses) are where business can compete with each other. Capitalism frees up codes so that they become even more comparable. Productive-codes represents the resistance to keeping the codes non-comparable. This is appropriative spaces that is flows-of-growth. The social salesmen makes an offer on flows-of-growth but uses the language-of-production to overcode them. Of what use is the insult someone if they “learn their lesson?” Insulting someone in simply means that the insulted is left in a better place to grow

The Wholesaler

The wholesaler then, must be creative to escape the forces of capitalism. The rise of passive-aggressive insults or condescending comments is visible among workplaces because of the accelerating rate of capitalistic-spaces. The package returns then, to the salesmen in productive-codes, meaning that he was conceived in productive spaces the whole time. The salesmen successfully wholesaled life-force and can now enjoy it in retail value (or make another offer).

The Broker

The broker can outsource the wholesaling process that he can disappear in presence. He builds a psychological structure to where life-force is syphoned in a hierarchical manner.
