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.

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.

Alliances

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.

From Enjoyment to Desire

An insult has occurred.

When a subject is said to be in a state of enjoyment, it is because flows of enjoyment passes through him. An-Other appears to take that enjoyment away from the subject. A duel between the both subjects marks the beginning of the insult. The subjected is that which enjoyment flows out from and the subject is that which enjoyment flows into. This is the intuitive understanding of the modern altercation – two subjects fighting to obtain enjoyment from each other. The insult serves as a key. A kind of acknowledgment to let the other know that the duel has commenced. The subject becomes the aggressor as he attaches himself to leach off flows of enjoyment. The subjected retaliate in return, making him a sucking-machine, attempting to win back the enjoyment. The subject also retaliates, making him a sucking-machine as well. The classic image of the tug-o-war of both subjects “pulling the ropes” this model is very limited because it cuts off the external world operating behind it.

When a subject is said to be in a state of enjoyment, it is because flows of enjoyment passes through him.

First, enjoyment doesn’t automatically make it the state of pleasure most people associate with the word “enjoyment.” Enjoyment can also be this idea of the lack of any foreseeable discomfort. Or it doesn’t have to be anything at all. A subject that is unbothered in a thoughtless stupor can also be said to be in a state of enjoyment. The problem is that enjoyment lacks any history. It simply appears as soon as it is on its way out. It is impossible to be in a state of enjoying one’s own feeding off of the external environment that brought the subject into a state of enjoyment. It isn’t until someone else tries to take it away that the possessiveness of this enjoyment takes the subjected ahold. This paradox illustrates that the limits of enjoyment as it exists as a representation. It represents a repression “– the repressing representation itself-” [1] as D&G puts it. “Enjoyment” limits our understanding of machines, flows, and attachments.

We will abandon “enjoyment” for desire because desire has history. Desire already comes negated.

Going back to Plato and the Greeks, desire was seen as a tragedy. The tragic sense of desire moved hands to Kant’s sense of delirium. Desire went from being tragic to a disease. Freud followed up Kant’s delirium of desire and added that desire could or should be repressed. Desire injected into the libidinal economy, with proper sublimation, could be turned into something useful and practical. So, the libidinal economy was built from the scientific method. It was thought that the unconscious could be coaxed into proper channels. Of course, this has several implications about freedom and freewill.

Desire was experienced as lacking and by splitting desire and the object-of-desire, one merely desire desire itself. The object-of-desire carries it’s “essence of lack” and desire is left to repress itself [2, p. 25].

Here’s where adults repress desire, but the question becomes, if desire desires itself, how are adults produced to repress it? We’ve learned how desire already comes in its negated form by investigating history in the philosophical tradition. When the adult receives this negated form of desire, he rejects it, disapproves of it, curses it, and by doing so, he reproduces it. But how can something that must be repressed can also be reproduces at the same time?

The Growing Adult

We must understand what an adult is. The question is not what the function of an adult is. But the question becomes where does the adult comes from and who produces the adult? We can speculate whether an adult is someone who takes up responsibility. We can determine if that means the taking up of sacrifices. He places needs ahead of desires. Adults places favor of something more noble. The question of what makes someone a grown-up is not an interesting question because the answers are already known. (An adult is someone with authority, responsibility, places need in favor of desire, etc.).

Desire was experienced as lacking and by splitting desire and the object-of-desire, one merely desire desire itself.

When an adult gives away desire in its repressed form, he expects it in return. Not that he anticipates the delivered package in return, but the package was set up by history to come back. – The receiver receives the package as an empty ‘void’ in which its cavernous and vacuous gravity pulls the subjected individual into it. (The package carries a negative momentum meant to head back to its original giver.) – By history, we mean that it came from the original body without organs or, the full body of the earth, coded all the way back. In today’s molar aggregate, the absolute limits represent the economy where these values are stored or released. The package was dressed up to appear unconcealed. What was concealed was the entirety of history in the philosophical tradition. The dialectical method unaffirmed and vengeance.

Desirous-Revenge

The entity is desirous-revenge. Desire as an antiflow and revenge as a flow of words. Desire is an antiflow because adults must repress desire. When an adult denies desirous-revenge, psychic repression holds him responsible to “bit the bullet.” Deep inside, he is raging and ravaging in anger. But psychic repression is all just a wild guess. It is childish at best and irresponsible at worst. Adults can gift desire it as an order (voluntarily)… as if it’s the right thing to do. When the subject receives it in return, again, psychic repression holds him to be affirmative of the returning. The feeling of sacrifice is all just repression (or representational repression). The feeling of the sacrificial desire is itself engineered from within the Modus Operandi. It is “living capitalism” that grows with psychic repression. When this occurs, desirous-revenge is displaced into life-force, it gives the adult permission to self-feel.

Only adults can do this successfully.

When subject participate in flows-of-growth, they are called growing-adults. Growing-adult are Global Persons representing someone else. It is said that the youth learn by growing. And they grow into adulthood as if it is something that everyone aspires to do. This growth is not the usual time-centered growth that comes with time passing by, it is a compounding of time where time overcodes into individual’s body without organs. Growth is done by becoming absent from the psychic repression in the world. Production, which comes from the philosophical tradition of territorializing smooth spaces must now be de-territorialized with growth instead of production but growth imamates at the same time production take growth-codes as its own and appropriates it for its own use. Both adults and youth who engage in flows-of-growth, are called growing-adults. Growing-adults are tasked with repressing desire but because desiring-production is the same as social-production, desire must be reproduced as it’s being repressed. Only adults can do this successfully. They do so by imposing the language-of-production.

This causes a couple of problems. Adults are discouraged to self-feel desirous-revenge. For an example, we’ll look at parody to explore this concept. An adult who insults a young person inadvertently puts the youth in a better place than when he has found him. Because the youth also participates in flows-of-growth, the youth “learned his lesson” The youth actually gained something that he never intends to return. But psychic repression would call for the adult to take it back. This is why when the youth retaliate in return, it is given back, but the price has gone up. How? Well, psychic repression calls for the youth to retaliate voluntarily and by paying the price on top of what the growing-adult has given it by. The growing-adult gave it in a canceled fashion using the language-of-production. The gift was actually overcoded but in a concealed manner. The concealment was done by flows-of-growth. It is because it was done in flows-of-growth that the transaction (flow) was allowed to pass through. But don’t think that the growing-adult anticipated the return because if he did, the Modus Operandi would account for the anticipation. (And remember, the youth must return the gift voluntarily). However, because psychic repression reigns supreme in modernity, the returning happens because the language-of-production deems the return involuntary. Astoundingly, this is how growth can happen according to growing-adults, “it is for your own good.” The adult is said to participate in “loving capitalism” when he takes advantage of the life-force that goes all the way back the full body of the earth. We are continuedly indebting the Socius from the front end (or the limit), causing everyone to anticipate in return, causing a cascading effect of anticipation all the way down the present moment. Codes then begin to fall through and overcode themselves by the future. That is how psychic repression works, by insisting that obligation follows growth. To obligate someone means that they must indebt themselves to them by getting the thing up front.

By definition, if money is used to make more money, money begins to be useless. This is inflation at its basic understanding. What is at work here is an obligatory force that is tangentially synthesized from the markets that fluctuate up and down. When money is printed into existence at the present moment? Where do intensities that are passively synthesized come from. By money obligating itself to be “invested” in the first place. Is what gives money its value. Deleuze mentions in his Ant Oedipus that the meaning behind “God is dead” is not some psyche altering apparatus that unlocks a certain way of being from the modern mind. But rather it is the time it takes for the phrase to be uttered, and the realization that it makes no effect whatsoever. Whether it comes from an actual deity or a made up one, Nietzsche, who obviously did not believe in the Christian God, utters “God is dead” for a God that cannot die because it doesn’t exist. But it requires an entire series of efforts needed for a non-existent investment, not of money, but at a basic level, a necessary transaction of appropriate sacrifices.

Freakout Culture

Public freakouts occur at “points-of-transactions” in the economy like at the cashiers, drive-throughs, traffic lights, and shopping outlets.

We are witnessing an explosion of freak-outs on social media. Has it always been this way? Has social media, particularly the live-feed apps, reveal to us an unfortunate nature of human beings. Or does it exacerbate it by engaging in feedback loops where the viewer gets ready in so someday, find themselves participating in an encounter, only to be recorded by someone else. I will propose a Pseudo-telekinetic phenomenon where we really do harm each other using our minds. Yes, a form of an ‘imaginary voodoo doll’ that we form of our enemies and enact our vengeance in the imagination. All it needs is an apparatus of capture and a language that can “cover up” or appropriate it. Capitalism is a form of maintenance to keep congruency through time. Without the proper language, it can be difficult to articulate how this apparatus work.  

However, the case can certainty be made that social media does operate with this Modus Operandi. All the moving parts and components are there: the apparatus of capture, flows of desirous-revenge, Comparative spaces, appropriative spaces, growing-adults, flows-of-growth, and flows-of-production. It’s almost intuitive and obvious that this is how it works. but in a loosely, partially connected a-priori way.  Individual compare themselves to find “worthiness” to life. Their “soul” is what individual use to measure themselves. This cardboard cut-out of a thing is orphan-ized, truncated. It never honers the flows-of-growth the individual is participating in. That’s why adults fight over trivial things that could easily be left by being “the bigger man.” Unfortunately, growing-adults are signing up for their own condemnation. In capitalistic spaces, they are short-changed whenever they negotiated. By what? money? A business deal? A relationship? An encounter? Everything must be about “a learning experience.” No longer do we produce for the sake of producing. Every job must lead to a career. Every relationship someone has to “find themselves.” Negotiation is a term of The Language of Production. The language of production always refers back to itself because it’s all about utility. Growing adults however, are engaged in flows of growth. The ‘negotiation’ was never about money at all but life-force. It is ability to affirm life as is. No one can do this while indebted by someone they hate. That’s why is say that the problem of Freakout Culture is a Catholic problem in that it’s fueled by hate. Hate has nothing to do with indebtedness but it must be forgiven in the same way sins are forgiven: one by one in detail. The sinner must pay with guilt. This is the Catholic practice of Penance. The solution imposed on us the Christian in the sense that all sins are forgiven by the blood of Christ. This ‘solution’ is becoming less appropriate because capitalism, or rather the “sprit of capitalism,” engages flows of production to create more capital. This is done by obligation someone with through debt.

Some notes on the Life-force

The parts of life worth living are cowardly movements that crawl under subterranean battlegrounds. That’s why living life to the fullest is cowardly at it’s core – one always takes advantage of another soul’s flow of life-force. I’ve said that the life-force is the life one takes away from someone else’s “soul” in order to self-feel. Self-feeling is the feeling of worthiness. Let’s say someone insults you (and for argument sake, you got your feelings hurt). We’ll talk about symbolic dying latter. If that person who insulted you wins the argument, then that person has the luxury of self-feeling off of your humiliation. And the sociatital contract is that you must recognize the transaction under the assumption that he or she was owed life-force. There’s was an impasse somewhere and someone had to take on the job of losing. So then if you believe you had nothing to do for you to accrue your opponent’s life-force, why then isn’t being the better man (or women) a viable option? To simply walk away like these mature adults say they do. Or pretend to feel offended while in fact your just playing the part for the sake of moving on? Why can’t you simply walk away and bite the bullet?

The infinite hell

You can walk away. The incorrect answer always attributes walking away to emotional intelligence. The reasoning goes like this: “as long as you are physically alive and well, you’re fine to just walk away and let him or her deal with the problem. It’s their problem, not yours” says the psychologists. If you look into today’s self-help literature, recent trends urges people stay honest like in the book “Radical Honesty” by Brad Blanton. Meaning you don’t walk away if you genuinely feel insulted. Radical Honesty instructs readers to show true emotion and stay with the uncomfortable emotions. Otherwise, this argument rests on yielding to emotional outrage. This is where the rationalists come up with a scientific explanation of using emotional intelligence. While they got the science of the emotional brain right, it’s merely a quantitative symptom of the reactive brain. The science takes credit for the underground battle that genealogical dose at a societal level. The adult will try to investigate the motivation of the aggressor to go off on him. This is exactly what the aggressor wants. The aggressor, bully, or sadist savors on this type of hell. Hell of infinite regression

Everybody wants the same thing, nobody wants to want different things anymore

All successful self-feeling happen within the Modus Operandi. That’s why the default route of western civilization is the capitalist one. The only reason why someone would want socioeconomic status, is to stand objectively in a world in order to understand it. This understanding of the world is robust enough to assemble a modus operandi. These operations are reactive spiritual revenge but on a deep powerful level. But why would anyone want to do this? This is the same question rationalist ask when they learn about sociology. Their reasoning goes: “someone insulted you? Who cares… As long as you’re physically alive, your feelings shouldn’t matter…” Or worse, “you got your feelings hurt?? Oh boohoo, grow up.” What they fail to understand is that self-feeling is necessarily cowardly at its deepest… Look at my post on vitalism. Except that in an individualist society, being cowardly is not highly regarded as. So cowardly moves must assembled and regarded as worthy. That’s why someone who wants to be worthy of life must make his life harder on purpose. He wants a worthy enemy.

The only solution is the IDGAF solution.

Animalistic determinism is binary. In nature, the winner of an encounter would kill or seriously injure an intruder, competitor, or a predator. This is nature’s equivalent of remaining worthy. Remaining worthy indicates the organism is alive. An organism doesn’t get to experience loss as they’re already dead or eaten up by the time they get “depressed”. Primitive societies gain social intelligence but there is still a binary system. The bigger male gets the resources, food, and mates. There are no “if, ands, nor buts” and if someone challenges the alpha male, they must win by force. As societies progresses into hierarchies, then states, then to current civilization, this binary disintegrates and worthiness can be won by arguments. Socially intelligent mammals like humans and chimpanzee stop going after their natural enemies and create artificially complicated ones. Intelligent animals learn how to read each other and regard the future as well as the past. They must brace themselves in order to survive. They internalize their instincts and recognition are stored in their symbolic inner self. This is what is known as the materialization of the soul

What the State does with life-force and how commerce collects it

But what does this look like? It’s not that there’s an imaginary health bar at the top of each person’s head during a verbal argument. Or a conveyor belt between two people’s soul in a tug-o-war fighting for life-force. The life-force transaction is instantaneous. It’s like a one time payment. To the contenders, it is a fight to the death. Taking it back to Nietzsche’s hypothetical credit-debit system, when the creditor inducess pain onto the debtor, then the creditor can self-feel as the torture incurs. Once the creditor self-feels, the creditor has received the debtor’s payment. This movement of life-force is so intrinsic to us that it is responsible for our species ability to live peacefully in society. When these forces “spill out,” we experience contention and spiritual instability. With the Death of God, the state allocates the same amount of life-force at the start of life with no discrimination. Commerce works with altruism to manipulate dignity to hold on the this life-force. The more capitalistic a society is, the more communistic the life-force is felt. Everyone is worth something and no one should be treated inferior, because that’s a cowardly move.

It is in territorialized space that people give up their permission to be treated with respect and allowed for supperiors to insult them so they could “learn to be better men.” If someone insulted you and a person receives pleasure off your bad-hurt, he or she is called a sadist. But in territorialized space, where everyone acts like an adult, the insult would train the one who was insulted to become more resilient, in other words, there is no such thing as words that can hurt you, only ones that build you up. So the sadist became an altruist in territorialized space. This is the spirit of capitalism. This spirit is desired by everyone that wants to injure a person without them knowing. This is the insult at it’s finest. Being able to injure a person internally is the stencil of modern day revenge. But to do it in a way that the plane of which their enemy’s inner city, crumbles as time moves on. There’s a catastrophic calamity that puts the enemy into a depressive state where the initial conditions where set up by the sadist. The capitalist drives oscillate around sado-masochism. The relation between the sadist and the masochist become more creative as the life-force necessary moves between winner or loser, never communally shared.

The will-to-power drives life-force into souls necessarily, that’s why successful insults are always cowardly and unfair. In territorialized space, this dynamic is clear. There is no arguing back because the insult is treated as a lesson, as a way to build up an average person in the presence of a high status person. There’s a teacher-student dynamic. The active force is the capitalist drive. Capitalists make the world go around. Capitalist are responsible for the flow of resources to impressively hold 7 billion people. Capitalists are creative about their flows of money and capital. They are responsible for the prosperity more people than ever. The unequal distribution relay in their work ethic and their production. Very few capitalists sacrifice most if not all of their lives for the benefit of the average person. They are more altruistic than all the charitable forces and the welfare forces combined. But Deleuze realized that active forces can become reactive-becoming by reactive forces impeding active forces from continuing to produce. The unequal production of flows of the capitalist to the average population is also their blindspot. As the capitalist work to advance civilization to a level no one has ever seen before, the average person who doesn’t even match their work ethic are capable to bring it down. Despite having themselves benefited by the capitalist for generations, the average person will overthrow and claim credit for all the work the capitalist sacrificed for. This is how history has always unfolded. Unfairness beats unfairness. For now the capitalist can love altruistically, meaning all the sadists who recieve pleasure from watching the average person with envy losses this ability to self-feel in territorialized space. Capitalism builds up their workers, civilians, and enemies to their level. Only those with the will to power can tug on the plane, just give it a little nudge to induce rage onto a person. With enough codified feedback loops, socioeconomic status, wit, and whim, the sadist can conduct an inception to just about anyone he or she wants.

This memory that the loser has of himself is informed by the collective negative feedback loops society codified starting from a homeostasis at the beginning of humankind

Everything feedback loops back to the present. Pretending your feelings are not hurt will just upgrade the system to take that into account. It ruins it for everyone else once enough people contribute to the feedback loop. The way people can genuinely self-feel in this complected chess game of life is to use a buffer strategy. An example would be when someone clings to an ideology. There, you can join a winning group and the combined forces of the group can win life-force from another groups’ souls. A political group, a religion, an institution, an ideology, or culture are buffers. A business is not a buffer because businesses and commerce produces physical currency. People are looking to materialize their souls. This roundabout way did not appear intentionally. This is the consequences of negative feedback loop from the weak, those who protect themselves against the wolves. Those who study the reactive brain. Those who hoard the life-force to themselves and poison the entire well. Those with ressentiment.

Let’s say someone identify with an ideology because they want to be on the winning side where they can catch their opponents in a stupid moment. They want a moment where they can humiliate their opponent losing face and self-feel off of their humiliation. As mentioned before, this humiliation can serve for the loser as a learning opportunity. Sadists do not want this transaction to serve as a learning opportunity. The sadists in the community or group want to conduct an inception. Like mentioned in one of my previous posts, an inception is where a memory is formed in the mind of the loser in that he is branded a loser, stupid, or an idiot. Society’s coded contractual agreement has it that the loser recognizes himself inside the mind of the sadist. The sadist agrees to recognize the loser inside of him. The sadist continuously humiliates his opponent through pseudo-telekinetic torture and perpetually self-feels. This memory that the loser has of himself is informed by the collective negative feedback loops society codified starting from a homeostasis at the beginning of humankind. The loser perpetually losses life-force because he is locked into an inception that the sadist implanted in him. Recognition is defined as, “you bear[ing] obligations to treat her in a certain way, that is, you recognize a specific normative status of the other person” As mentioned in the Stanford encyclopedia of philosophy. But if the loser becomes a masochist meaning that he genuinely self-deprecates, then the sadist is revealed too much of a coward and no life-force transfers. At its core, the conflict is proper. The conflict is fair in that it is written contractually that the humiliation is welcomed as form of learning experience. The sadist would rather have a worthy opponent in that the opponent is mentally stable and inept so that things naturally unfold. A play where the opponent is willing to self-deprecate indicates the person is mentally unsuited for an inception. So the sadist must build his opponent up before conducting an inception. This is where capitalistic altruism is born. The true capitalist love is building a person mentally well enough for him to torture himself to the fullest.

Every continent’s life expectancy goes up with growing capital. The statistics for Asia sticks out the most as Asia’s economy exploded. In lifestyle, technology, and standard of living, Asia (particularly China) will be the superpower of the world. This statistic shows a huge boost in life expectancy, exactly what you would expect from a capitalistic superpower. In a relatively short amount of time, (more than the normal time it takes to bring the life expectancy of an entire nation above the 70 year mark) GDP surpassed all other continents.

On Cowardice, Atheists vs. believer

Some say a coward someone who lacks courage. In recent times, a coward is someone who runs away from responsibility. In times of war, many militaries deal with AWOL (Absent without leave) soldiers differently. Militaries punishes dissenters by serving prison time and a few centuries ago, they killed them in public to deter others from going AWOL. Justifiably so because 1) dissenters weaken the morale of troops, and 2) encourage others to run away in times when they are needed most. A warrior or soldier, trained for fighting and defending, when in the hour of need decide to betray friends, family, and country, is a coward for fleeing for his or her life. By the end of this essay, we’ll discuss how the skeptic’s loving always always fails to attain life-force from the altruistic believer.

The Bully

Another definition of a coward is someone who takes advantage of someone else who can’t defend himself. Say, a bully in the school yard that has physical strength to pick on the little guy. Schools are places where one can observe the nature of humans undomesticated. As children who are born innocent begin to learn how to operate in society, boys in particular learn that strength is not cowardliness. In schools, it’s not just strength that capacitates bullies with intimidation, but attitude. Schools in lower income are treated like a prison. They façade resembles like prison when built in the middle of the slums. They have to make the stronger kid the coward. The child who is hubris, who learns to have fun, disobeys authority, shares genuine experiences, breaks windows, invites friends over, and live as children are supposed to live, can also be the bully. Then there’s the accountant child who begins to adapt by obeying. They learn about the world too quickly and close themselves up. They carry the poison of weakness in the playground. Despite obeying grownups and wanting to be like them, they don’t want to grow up. The bully picks on the little guy because he can. The accountant child becomes a recluse.

How to suck the life out of someone

The laws of nature obeys because of the Will-to-power. The Will-to-Power answers the “why” in causation. As established in Will-to-power and the quest for symbolic immortality, physics is the study of forces. All phenomena, ideas, and bodies carry both reactive and reactive forces within. The tension between the conflicting forces vitalizes in a way where active forces “take” identity away from the reactive forces. But active forces are not in conflict with reactive forces. Only reactive forces react to everything the active forces affirm. Reactive forces react because reactive forces are fully capacitated by the Will-to-Power to do so. However, all forces exists in the context of all external forces acting on it. Technically, there is not an active force and a reactive force separately competing. They are just one force in sense that they share a genealogy stretching all the way back to an inception. Bullying is just a transaction just like any other transaction be it altruistic or loving transactions. There’s always a loser and a winner of identity. Adults learn to mitigate the Will-to-Power with growth. Growth is a reactive attitude towards death in that adults want to “live their childhoods properly” before they die. This is the attitude of that of the accountant who don’t want to experience losses or gains of life-force at every point of juncture, articulation, or joint in society. His soul is the weak space rock bouncing and crashing by bigger space rocks. They loss life-force because they don’t have a choice. They prefer to save and accumulate life-force to protect the little they have.

The Virgin Skeptic vs the Chad Christian

Humans can not live sanely in a world that is way too big, mysterious, dangerous, complicated, and intimidating. So they partialize it. Humans pick it up, analyze, and assault it the world as if they were the bullies. They push, pull, tumble, tinker, and carbon-14 date it to observe and annotate what happens. Then they store it in a file and label it truth. They live in the Earth but don’t want to be apart of it because accepting the earth for what it is means that they are also animals. Human being with animal determinism is a disparity too hard to bear. As we participate in the giving and taking of life-force, the daily push-pull transactions to make the world go round, life-force occurs cowardly. For those who can hear it, the Will-to-Power works simply and beautifully. It takes, steal, suck, acquire, and bend life-force indifferent of any morality or feelings prevalent in culture. Every sale is an intimidation. Every advertisement a bully. Every purchase is a revenge. But only the accountant sees it as “living in the world” because they don’t want to be part “of the world” because they are cowards. Every transfer of life-force is done cowardly. I argue for a soft determinism, but I don’t affirm compatibilism. Transitions are experienced painfully, as every point of juncture falls into its components built for by accountants. Shame, embarrassment, and uncomfortable feelings come out as an opportunity for the strong person to self-feel. This is the most authentic way to live in a capitalist economy. It helps us turn more hubristic and less accountant. If hubrists are cowards, its because it is a virtue. Just like hypocrisy. But the accountant wants to “live livie in the world but not of it”. He wants a world glossed over for him. Yes there are jobs to do, positions to apply for, raises to ask for, deals to negotiate, girls to ask out, death to happen, but these “articulations” should happen smoothly. That if one is afraid to accept responsibility for entering into marriage or asking a crush out on a date that that decision alone should carry momentum to the next step. To the accountant, the world is a giant bully

Just like a boy learns to avoid certain hallways at school, learns to run, escape, and react to everything. With religion, beliefs are attacked because it is the soul’s life line. Think of the atheist, he wants for someone faithful their entire life to abandon their belief system at the end of life. The atheist wants to tell him that his religion is fake and take credit for pain he assumes will take part. He wants to self-feel in a loving way. The most inauthentic way to self-feel is through loving because the taker is assuming that he won life-force while in fact, he is leaving the life-force on the table. The Will-to-Power doesn’t happen in someone’s mind. It happens in the objective world according to accountants. An atheist might admit he takes life-force by ‘respecting one’s beliefs’, but he has to confirm that fact. Did a transaction happen? Was life-force confirmed? The the loving skeptic self-feel? The giver (the believer) did not in fact give the life-force because there was not argument done through loving. Does the skeptic spew out facts to watch the believer life drain away from his eyes as he falls into an eternal sleep? If he does, he’s a coward. “If only he knew the facts,” the atheist murmurs to himself.

Vitalism

Will and Arial Durant, two historians who wrote The Lessons of History noted that as astronomers took photographs of the Earth from space, it became clear just how overshadowed the Earth was relative to everything else. For the first time the threat of a belief in a god was so personal that people reinforced their belief in religion more than ever. The contrast between outer space and a personal god became so clear, it put into motion elements of the psyche that, given a few generations, had people claw at each other for life they desperately felt they deserved. Society then, turned inward. Just as scientists abandoned the world of the very large (planets, gravity) society scolded at the large centers of authority, institution, government, monopolies. They prefered smaller, individual packets of authority spread over the city. Scientists preferred to study the very small. Atoms! “Somewhere, in the absolute limit of space-time, should lie meaning,” they reasoned. So, focusing their microscopes, splitting the atom, and then the protons, what did they find? What they came up against with? The quanta world was too mysterious but at the same time, promising. As technology also became smaller, narrower, and intrusive with the discovery of the quantam realm, society confined and micromanaged it self so that every single joint, and articulation was invaded. But pay attention to the verbs physicists associate with quantum mechanics: “probability, chance, luck, uncertainty. These are the words nihilists have to work with to come up with any meaning. Society is now hitting a crisis of meaning at an intensity never before experienced. At least in observing the very big, one could fall enamoured with harmony in the orderliness of planets and their perfect ellipses, eclipses, and geometries. But it is now clear that beneath these perfect shapes a foundational disparity.

Lovecraftian horrers are hard to come to peace with

Reality comes to enphenominate with disparity or discrepancy. For example think of the age of the universe; we have deep-time, the time that is so uncomfortable for us to think about with ease. Deep-time is the time that moves continents, destroys mountains, allows species to evolve, stars to shift and move, suns created and destroyed. We are but a fraction of a fraction of a second compared to the timeline of deep-time. All this time needed to form a habitable planet to sustain and maintain an infinitesimal portion of life. I call this property vitalism, the need for dependent forces to represent a disparity in quantity and quality to enphenomenate existence. Reactive forces rests as a base and loses identity to, or incorporates either part of itself to or entirely to, active forces to enphenominate.

When I think about how vitalism affect us, I think about A Clockwork Orange, the film by Stanley Kubrick. Our minds are infinite, it can ponder about atoms and asteroids, time travel to the dinosaurs or to the beginning of life itself, but it is constrained by the limits of biological physiology, of which obeys the laws and properties of the universe. So when biology is stuffed into mechanical orderliness, the parasympathetic nerves wakes up like a loud alarm. When these elements manifests itself disfavorable to us, probability, chaos, exponentials, compounding, luck, chance, unequalness, uneven-ness, displacement, skewed, and uncertainty, feels so unfair . But when we fall favorable to it, it’s the status quo. If Schopenhauer lived today, he’d ascribe these experiences painful if they would manifest negatively but when manifested positively, the experience would not match the same intensity of the negative.

Regarding enphenomenation

This is where I talk about vitalism at every level of the physical reductionism “ladder.” There exists a harmony, a purgatory, where Dionysian limbs rests on reactive forces. Think of the “wetness” that emerges from an uncountable number of water molecules to make a cup of water. Or the homeostasis of a body of which the physical molecules must obey without fail so the body could counteract the extremes of elements. Or the economic systems by which each individual must operate faithfully, like organs to a body, for vitalism to create an economic system with life of its own. A large component of reactive forces supply autonomy at the base to a small component of active forces. This is the dogmatic image of thought scientists injected into its sciences, public relations speak to its press, businessmen pay into their business, and politicians into its laws, that accelerates the slave individual. If you ponder population economics, the vast number of people that need to be at the bottom, “lower/ working class,” in order for the small elites to “find themselves” and “self-actualize” is normally acceptable.

Think about the environmental condition needed for our neolithic or paleolithic ancestors to procreate and raise offspring. All predators left at bay after becoming apex predator in the food chain is still there. Now, our survival energy is mitigated in such a way that the necessary violence between simpler-evolved organisms are still engaging in the battle for life. It’s just that we crossed a threshold that we have all these vitals working for us. In quantum mechanics most elementary particle exists to only be destroyed immediately. A ridiculous amount of self-decaying elementary particles are disproportionately sacrificed constantly, giving the necessary condition for a more fundamental particle to live a little more than that. Something like 8×10^-12 seconds is the lifespan for a mueon to exist in the cosmos. The abundance of these elementary particles needed to be sacrificed constantly must be insane. As we climb the ladder of physicalism to form quarks, chromodynamics lets us see how energy of these elementary particles engage in quantum fields similar to thermodynamics when gasses and atoms exists in a system. And on and on we find the same engagement mirror the scale as we size up.

What to do when autonomy becomes distributed?

Think about population economics where a large portion of the populations needed to obey ecological rules, for a subset of species to be “free-er”. In society, it is expensive for a lower status man to “find himself” than it is for a higher status person. Like mentioned above, we scale down every aspect of sovereign space to be micromanaged and owned. The consequences are that every interaction between two or more people is a stand off of life-force. We are invited to behave like atoms or else we’d be insulted. Soon, society will behave like elementary particles, 90% of the population consistently loose life-force to the 10% of those who “self-actualize.” It’s not like these 10% of high-status people wake up one day as say “I’m going to find my true purpose… but it happens necessarily. At a hypothetical city, a large portion of people would work intensive blue-collar labor for the higher-status people to sit in chair to get paid for thinking really hard. At the turn of the century, these intensive labour jobs got shipped oversees where the population lies in the billions, like china, India, and soon Africa. So now the new lower-status people of our city, will be service level jobs. Capitalism praises this altruistic move to vitalize. Better living conditions is the “new” lower class. While in fact, all the necessary hard labour is mitigated into this microscale micromanaged society where spaces are invaded. Now, our souls do all the fighting. All the strangers are subject for life-force life prey are in the jungle. Its survival of the fittest soul. And the faintest glance at a person, as people become isolated, becomes animosity. Every space is now fair game for the soul to conduct an inception.

Capitalistic altruism

Is the person who is calm and delivers a concise, well thought out argument, winner of this life-force I’ve talked about. Of which I mean the symbolic affirmation of the inner-self to prove oneself worthy of life? In the meaning-making process of capitalism, the gold standard of souls is where one can measure oneself against another for an objective assessment of worthiness. It’s a healthy reminder that souls materializes when archaic forms of violence (of which meant prehistoric survival) are transformed into modern forms of ‘violence’ (of which means symbolic immortality). For the dialecticians, the transfer of life-force happens through the labor of the negative i.e. conflict, arguments, insults, and submissions. All organisms that survive in open nature outperforms its rivals when physical brute force ends the threat. In modern society, the soul has taken up the responsibilities of measuring life worth, so, how is worth measured to the soul? Schopenhauer’s will-to-life concludes that there’s an underlying force that motivates everything from the very small (atoms), to the very large, (galaxies) to expand indefinitely. So we, with an evolved brain capable of comprehending what it will go through at the end of life, disregards the body as something temporal, a piece of carbon within a space rock flung thousands of miles around the sun, This view lead Schopenhauer, as well as dialecticians, to conclude the will-to-life striving is inherently meaningless and dangerous. So these archaic forces must be sublimated into utilitarian forces. The sense of most people that we are prisoners to our instincts only to be occasionally relieved by catharsis, oedipal forces, or reactive forces, is contributing to the reactive forces of capitalism making meaning for our souls.

I’ve talked about the two forces, active and reactive. Reading Deleuze’s take on Nietzsche in his masterpiece interpretation book Nietzsche and Philosophy, there’s a sense of accomplishment after understanding the active and reactive forces. It’s the kind of feeling one gets after acing a test by getting the right answer. Nietzsche reads forces much more simple and practical than dividing the world up into two. Further reading can frustrate the reader because Deleuze moves away from the clear-cut definition of these forces into an anti-ideological openness. This is where Nietzsche stands out as one of the most powerful yet humbling philosophers of all time. Nietzsche offers an active solution, instead of the the will-to-life, he offers the will-to-power. The will-to-power’s interpretation of capitalism is that active action can be done out of love or out of altruism. An action done out of altruism is when the active and reactive forces are confused as to the transfer of life-force of growing adults. An altruistic action is when reactive forces are participatory in the transfer of life-force but sentiments of loss are mitigated into a moralistic or ideological level. Capitalists want to forgive the debts their populations have, and give them opportunity, but remaining life-force is transferred. Capitalistic altruism is an example of an active force purposefully confusing this transfer where the betterment of society is itself a fair trade-off to the old, archaic states of humanity. The capitalists are also confused as to what they are actually understand as receiving. The betterment of society is itself its own reward. This keeps them blind to the life-force transfer. They are utilitarians and pragmatists which would explain why most capitalists are resort to moral structure in religion and the spiritual. They don’t know what to do with so much life that they’ve accumulated. But the-will-to-power is the genealogical force. Like i said, any phenomena contains within itself its own active force, capitalism as a force, contains within itself it’s own active and reactive forces. This tension is what gives phenomena it’s ‘realness.’ Similarly, capitalism sprung into existence out of this confusion. Returning to our hypothetical confrontation between two people, who wins the life-force? an altruist? As established in the last post, the winner is the one who conducts a successful inception, that is leaving your opponent ‘feeling some type of way’ where you relish in the fact that he is left feeling resentful of losing. This would make you the dominant force in the confrontation. The life-force is confirmed with an accurate modus operandi, as adults grow into understanding the world as objectively as possible… dialectically. Growing adults can checkmate an opponent into ‘playing himself’, meaning proving his own arguments working against him. Think of the inception as the apparatus where the indebted slave must suffer torture for the creditor to self-feel, that is to use his slave’s pain as payment for the unpaid debt. Again, this is set in Nietzsche’s hypothetical slave-master society. In today’s post-materialized soul, you can relish taking life-force as you win an argument and you can play your sweet victory over and over again in your mind or later, or forever for that matter. If your opponent has sentiments of bitterness but doesn’t understand the modus operandi behind it, this is altruism, because the loser accepts the dogma of growth. The same altruism that capitalism works under to confuse both parties as to what the life-force is. But if you want to leave your opponent having ‘learned a lesson,’ say with a fist to his or her face, or an uncalled for insult, then you leave your opponent better than when you found them. This the soul can not accept a mere ego trip, it wants revent, the fuel souls work on, the baggage of bad consciousness. This is active love, the love of a parent, the love of your boss, the love of your society, the love of god. You might intend to teach your opponent a lesson but this is disingenuous because it betrays the will-to-power. It doesn’t confuse which means it never enphenominates to anything. It just leads to banter and wanting to out-teach each other a lesson. Or worse, it becomes a battle of who gives a fuck the least. For the soul, the perpetual inception works in the ideological level. That is why if you attack someone’s beleif, not only will that person react as as if its a threat on his life, but his life is in constant torture, all live in the head of your opponent.

A component of a modus operandi is put your opponent into a position where he or she is required replaying his losing of life-force over and over again. Again, this works beautifully in the ideological or political level. And the name of the game is recognition. It is only if you recognize yourself inside the mind of your opponent’s fuled with ressentiment even after the confrontation is over. Deleuze want people to be anti-ideological, anti-reactive. To do so, he points out that there are active forces that become-reactive. and reactive forces that become-active. Love is an example of an active force becoming-reactive only because the reactive force takes away his ability to self-feel. That is he learns to become in the world.

Is an active force the dominant for because he hold the will-to-power? No. You can also ask this question: can a reactive force overcome an active force by using will-to-power? Again no. Nietzsche isn’t difficult to understand. Everything, body, or phenomena contain within itself active and reactive forces but with their genealogies. Meaning that there’s really only one force but with direction to it. That’s it. The question to ask is: is and active force becoming-reactive or is a reactive force becoming-active. Will-to-power is present within both active and reactive forces. Only reactive force can make an active force become-reactive by inhibiting what it can do.

Capitalism and the Materialist Soul

Everybody knows that money isn’t the thing it is. “Money is just a piece of paper,” we say. The common belief of the history of money is that before paper or coin money, the standered currency was gold and other precious metals. Before that, we had, more-or-less, a barter economy – an apple would pay for two oranges for example. Once society gets overly complex, basic receprocity falls apart because everyone’s wants diffent things at different times. Therefore a common currency was established to acount for time and aninimony (a medium of exchange).

The soul of each individual works in a similar way. Just as the amount of money determines how much of a product, service, or standard of living we can obtain, the soul must obtain “life” to even be worthy to remain alive… symbolically. What else can the soul do without physical boundaries? How did the soul came to be? And how will it’s quest to become immortal affect actual life, biological or otherwise? In this blog, I will attempt to use contemporary thought to describe new possibilities of living in this exhaustive world of currency. I will use the influences of radical French theorists like Gillis Deleuze and Felix Guatarri as well as structuralist, post structuralism, and existential philosophies. I’ll use my training I received in the modern educational system of the United States, life experience, and solo-prenureship ventures to talk about physics, history, psychology, business, technology. I don’t want this blog to be “a book about a book” or “a book about other books” (which is what textbook actually are if you think about it), but rather, create a new physics, new society, and new psychology of possibility.
