an offering to the gods of language retention
The logic of post-democracy trends is circular – big business is encouraged to grow, becomes more important to an economy, is incorporated into the structures of governance, has a greater influence in policy-making, which in turn allows it to grow further – but what is more damning is the complete surrender of opposition parties to these mechanisms. Indeed the most successful practitioners of the neoliberal model were the ‘Third Way’ administrations of Tony Blair and Bill Clinton. This is in itself revealing. The ‘move to the centre’, as the enclosure of democratic parameters was referred to, was pursued with relatively minor disturbance through the mid-to-late nineties and on through the first half of the twenty-first century. For all the dwindling voter turnout and periodic anti-globalisation unrest, the model of Anglo-American capitalism appeared to be in rude health, even succeeding in co-opting the progressive currents of theory which had previously been a reliable check on the abuses of power carried out under the banner of orthodoxy.
Of course, this superficial tranquillity and the façade of having conquered ‘boom and bust’ was quite dramatically shown up as being anything but sustainable, as a subprime mortgage crisis in California snowballed into 2007’s Global Financial Crisis. The post-industrial zeitgeist of endlessly shared risk and endlessly accrued profits sank under the cold reality that the American and British banking sectors were bailed out by the state and, lest we forget, the taxpayer. Suddenly swarms of writers were queuing to stick the proverbial knife into the pillars of neoliberal political economy, taking aim at irresponsible bond traders and mortgage lenders. Wall St. and the City were corrupt and above the law, the political class in cahoots with all manner of unsavoury interests. The election of President Obama in 2008 can be viewed in this light. It is ever easier to lament how ‘change’ and ‘hope’ were mere rhetoric, but that would be a disservice to the grassroots mobilisation within ‘ground zero’ of the economic crisis, one which Russell Brand, incidentally, was keen to support. With its credibility strained, the notion of a ‘shelf life’ for political economy ideologies was optimistically brought back to the discussion. As surely as neoliberalism had usurped Keynesianism, many assumed another imminent transformation of capitalism.
These observers had underestimated the pyrrhic success of the past thirty years with regards to the nexus between the state and big business. Now more than half a decade after the Global Financial Crisis, governments across the OECD have grappled with a conundrum largely of their own making. In spite of overwhelming criticism, the political class remained ‘lost in the maze’, not only now relying on MNCs to provide public services and the running of government, but also now quite literally stakeholders after a series of forced nationalisations. The link between the two was if anything strengthened, as evidenced by the business-as-usual approach typifying the 2010-present period: the banks once lambasted as ‘too big to fail’ are now even bigger, housing markets are being stoked into bubbles again and Nobel laureate Robert Shiller has warned of another US stock market crash.

The initial chemical shock.
The subsequent shocks as “things” begin to swim themselves back together, as patterns are reasserted.
The imprint cannot be held indefinitely for evaluation, it decays, it is adapted.
If we can envision the imprint flash of signification, the signalled circuits, there is then at least the image of “a blueprint” from which we can seek to retrieve its information- a received architecture of reception, which could, in theory, being diagrammatic, serve as a stand-in for neutral ground and advocate for non-dismissal- the mask of the “objective good” which could allow the subject a platform from which the subject may voice what the subject may deem unvoicable of their thoughts without shame, without blaming itself for its unpalatable echoes.
the machines that breed together as they appear contorted “individualised”;; displayed inhabiting a new configuration in the host body.
does this stand-in for the not-born, this “image of a blueprint” exist outside?
It is declared all around us to trick us.
it lives in the doctors’ polluted questionnaire
it lived well in anonymity of the subject
it lives still in the strings of those who would compel themselves to become that-which-is-despicable on the public stage without cause or notice, as if embodying a collective demon could logically provide redemption beyond the cry of “there exists that which we will not voice”.
The moral subject being process, yearnings. Careful consideration and indeterminacy being taboo as weakness, “collectively” deemed* a virtue only when falsified.
The anonymous subject does well to declare the machinations of their perspective, to be sure, but it seems that a lifetime for that task would not be long enough, and shorthand does not appear to translate. Is it said that the process is born of the yearnings? The yearnings then; what may we call wholesome when the universal is the first thing to be misused in any struggle? Conventional wisdom holds that one Asimov could write new programming instructions for the human subject and a thousand abusers would be born, regardless. There is no perspective from which to counter this assumption.
*declared a virtue by “the voice of the public”

so inside gallery walls things appear to have materialised from the ether, so to speak, that special feeling of The Unknowable Source, or anyhow,
the gallery walls are contextualised in such a way that the recontextualising of objects that exist within them is not allowed to complete its transitions.
but that is all old hat, worn by the wide-eyed young and the absent rich.
so then you have the same interruptive-process occurring for certain people on objects outside of that space, frequently (everyone has Left Paris). although it is impossible to know: is the increased frequency simply a matter of increased availability of records, or elsewise still a matter of observer bias? almost certainly, but through/without the lens of technoshock we must strive to see the occurence as it is, resulting from a combination of several factors, in order to understand how to reproduce the occurrence in an effort to spread its power. of course it is possible if not innevitable that many if not all factors may be identified incorrectly, yet many possible factors have made themselves apparent to my mind some of which i will mention below1 and infinitely more are as yet variously both known-by-others and unknown
when the interruptive-process does occur outside of those walls it gifts its user with the known-context of “human being with a workable symbology of oppositions” through which to see the objects they encounter inside the walls.
this is the skeleton key of endless spirals. it too is old hat but the hat remains one-size-fits-all. the most useful hat to ever put on anything’s head and easily available in any language at any time.
this the cyclical shift in power, and may the ever-breeding rats see fit to drown the ship’s cat. murals, window dressings, a shared hall on every street.
"movements" that is revolutions of understanding occur in this temporal environment "delocalised", "numbed" to the world stage2, and apparently in much faster succession than ever before, yet a man still must live the same number of days, and breathe the same, and reach the same plateaus.
1- the choices of recontextualisation that image-workers are forced to make being now the very-public choices of the many (which produces pockets of fervent and fruitful rapid transitions),
the power of the image being blown abundant into the hands of the many,
the shifting tides of history and sudden influxes of information making neat work of previously-held convictions.
2- to the world stage only. on the level of the human being emotional navigation remains the only possible method of navigation, and i think the machine, which runs not by direct index but through crowd-records of intuitive choices, will enter only further into this bargain and that a call from the void to the user for a numbed non-response may become increasingly rare if not entirely impossible. dopamine being that which supports the machine and feedback loops being the principle by which etc.
I am repeating myself.

just think how handy all this big data will be to yahoo’s for-hire marketing subsidiaries once pattern recognition on image use becomes as efficient as it is for text use. in terms of the prediction/manipulation of desires. i mean boy how often do i wish i had access to all that data just to watch it! that’s the first thing i thought of when i heard and i’m betting it’s gibson’s fault that it came to mind immediately. then i checked out the shoddy wikipedia list of their subsidiaries and they are indeed already operating on that front. saying this because i just saw one of their statements about the takeover on the dashboard and the language use seemed to confirm that as a motivation.

I was having palpitations and then I lay down and I closed my eyes and when I opened them a switch had flipped and suddenly every solution was presented to me in a string of coherent thought-projections (imagined actions with concurrent evaluative feelings and demonstrative wordforms), the delivery of which made me gasp at their aptness, and the thoughts “the endless collisions in the endless spirals, deathwork” and “everything is a just a big old bulge in the denim of space time, I am a GENIUS lol” which as I write that last clause half started to sound out with a series of electronic wobbles, which I’m pretty sure was meant to be an elaborate joke played on me by my inner ears. Now enough clowning around, the ground is set for me, I have work to do. There is no reason for habits but for that we grow to think that there is reason for habits, but more power to that I say because without habits nothing gets done. There is no nonsense in nonsense but for sense itself. I gross myself out but it’s ok this way cause im an atheist who is full of god which essentially means that I don’t believe in humans. Don’t look at me I’m just the narrator ba dum ba dum ch. hahahhahahah pick some laughs, any laughs, any laughs you like. I’m eating jammie dodgers for dinner tonight.
i’m shivering but i’m not cold.
i’m not saying i’m not worthy of contempt in the courts of naturalised law.
i bought my sister some rings from new look for her birthday and she gave me one of them. it’s a pair of angel wings and i wear it on my thumb, on my other hand i have a ring my grandad bought for my nan.
it’s really just about remembering that i am capable of “typing”(read: inputting output) in all situations, which is difficult to do since i don’t really think that mavis beacon teaches typing made me learn the skill any faster than i would have had i learned it without such software, which itself would have remained conditional on whether i was aware that i could type things at will somewhere anyway, i suppose for the correct keyboard posture a health and safety worksheet would have done or just some other basic instruction, not that i wasn’t given instruction. mavis beacon teaches typing just taught me to worry all the time about being slow and inadequate. my parents tried to counteract that but i think mavis beacon teaches typing and swimming coaches yelling at me really shoved me quite neatly into that particular box. the box where one of a person’s dominant fears being a fear of failure stunts their growth. it’s a huge, huge box, it has to accomadate a great many people.
file under books i haven’t read but might do someday, btw nerds. you wanted to see how i talk to myself, well here it is folks, i talk to myself in sounds, sights, and potential communiques because that’s how it works, it’s not my fault i am contemptible. if i don’t tell anyone what i’ve seen and do what i think i should do well then i’m just a thousand bouncy balls bouncing round a barge enni.
SET YOURSELF ON FIRE FOR THE CAUSE.
SELF IMMOLATE HARMLESSLY FOR THE SHEER CAUSALITY.
that’s enough jammie dodgers for me

Guilt, therefore, I do not acknowledge; and if I did, it is possible that I might still resolve on the present act of confession in consideration of the service which I may thereby render to the whole class of opium-eaters. But who are they? Reader, I am sorry to say a very numerous class indeed. Of this I became convinced some years ago by computing at that time the number of those in one small class of English society (the class of men distinguished for talents, or of eminent station) who were known to me, directly or indirectly, as opium-eaters; such, for instance, as the eloquent and benevolent —-, the late Dean of —-, Lord —-, Mr. —- the philosopher, a late Under-Secretary of State (who described to me the sensation which first drove him to the use of opium in the very same words as the Dean of —-, viz., “that he felt as though rats were gnawing and abrading the coats of his stomach”), Mr. —-, and many others hardly less known, whom it would be tedious to mention. Now, if one class, comparatively so limited, could furnish so many scores of cases (and that within the knowledge of one single inquirer), it was a natural inference that the entire population of England would furnish a proportionable number. The soundness of this inference, however, I doubted, until some facts became known to me which satisfied me that it was not incorrect. I will mention two. (1) Three respectable London druggists, in widely remote quarters of London, from whom I happened lately to be purchasing small quantities of opium, assured me that the number of amateur opium-eaters (as I may term them) was at this time immense; and that the difficulty of distinguishing those persons to whom habit had rendered opium necessary from such as were purchasing it with a view to suicide, occasioned them daily trouble and disputes. This evidence respected London only. But (2)—which will possibly surprise the reader more—some years ago, on passing through Manchester, I was informed by several cotton manufacturers that their workpeople were rapidly getting into the practice of opium-eating; so much so, that on a Saturday afternoon the counters of the druggists were strewed with pills of one, two, or three grains, in preparation for the known demand of the evening. The immediate occasion of this practice was the lowness of wages, which at that time would not allow them to indulge in ale or spirits, and wages rising, it may be thought that this practice would cease; but as I do not readily believe that any man having once tasted the divine luxuries of opium will afterwards descend to the gross and mortal enjoyments of alcohol, I take it for granted
That those eat now who never ate before;
And those who always ate, now eat the more.
Indeed, the fascinating powers of opium are admitted even by medical writers, who are its greatest enemies. Thus, for instance, Awsiter, apothecary to Greenwich Hospital, in his “Essay on the Effects of Opium” (published in the year 1763), when attempting to explain why Mead had not been sufficiently explicit on the properties, counteragents, &c., of this drug, expresses himself in the following mysterious terms (φωναντα συνετοισι): “Perhaps he thought the subject of too delicate a nature to be made common; and as many people might then indiscriminately use it, it would take from that necessary fear and caution which should prevent their experiencing the extensive power of this drug, for there are many properties in it, if universally known, that would habituate the use, and make it more in request with us than with Turks themselves; the result of which knowledge,” he adds, “must prove a general misfortune.” In the necessity of this conclusion I do not altogether concur; but upon that point I shall have occasion to speak at the close of my Confessions, where I shall present the reader with the moral of my narrative.
the sad part is that i now have to get to doing the work that i planned out before i started to write this.
