playing a game is so entirely inconsequential
playing a game is so entirely a waste of time
playing a game doesn’t matter

what are you going to do with your life?
what are you going to do with your life?
play a game
play many games
games are fun to play
fun, funny, funtastic
elastic, plastic, and entirely dividuatable
games control your lives
your many yous, your many lives
games provide incentive to
lives that are not compulsory
lives that do not matter
lives that have yet to exist
plan for the future!
step right up; claim your game!

nothing

the
Politics of Good and Bad
are a sorting machine;
working in tandem,
they process excrement on the
internet and
sort objects into
piles of
good and bad for
capitalists.

it doesn’t matter which
you choose,
both piles serve as
valuable commodities in the
market because the
marketplace
serves those who exist to
reinforce and
those who exist to
subvert.

to disrupt the
marketplace,
you must abstain from
participating as
part of the machine.

the
Machine requires
hu-mons,
individuals
who will also
co-facilitate the
exchange of goods and
services in the
marketplace.

without a machine, these
individuals struggle with
accumulating enough
energy for a
phase transition; like a
gas that longs to
be a liquid.

post-industrial Capitalism
facilitates the
condensation of
individuals into fluids, and
that is why—
despite the harm
it facilitates—
individuals will not readily
abandon capitalism.

there is nothing
more important than the
feeling of fluidity.

NOTHING.

spiders without bodies

scroll through the feels
tweet your insecurities
disparage cynicism and apathy;
go on, commodify your paranoia

unload yourself wherever you go
enact memory with each exchange
heuristics lighten your cognitive load;
shake, shake, shake the pan

find your-self singular,
in perfect form, but
beware those trolls;
they devour fragmented, golden mirrors

you do not exist for you
but to validate the silk-spinners
who cocoon others with self-hatred;
those spiders without bodies

replace schoolteachers with librarians

i
want to
live in a
world tomorrow
that
is not like the
one
i
believe
exists today
wherein
sanity and
happiness are
contingent on
consistency and
Truth.

let the
money
burn wildly,
let the
clocks
stop turning;
fire all the
police officers and
replace
schoolteachers with
librarians.

if you
are born
you should
be afforded the
necessities of
life—
love,
sustenance,
protection,
faith,
forgiveness,
histories,
languages,
spaces,
bodies.

situate
my opportunity in
relation to
doing and not
being
because
spawning and
birth
are not
equivalent and the
burden of
my birthplace,
birthbody,
birthlanguage
need not the
complexification of basic
survival needs.

to be in
relation to
relations
is to
cope with the many
things
i
am becoming—to
accept that
i cannot
be only
one person,
guided by
one pursuit, or
motivated by
one source of
validation.

hope
does not
beg for
certainty;
rigidity
does not
beget
ritual; and
sustainability
is not
consistency.

multiplicity
does not
conform to a
line, and so
we need a different
ideal by which to
relate
relations;
if not “progress,” then
what?

to be a victim

what does
it mean to
be the victim—the
corpse, the
strangled, the
hidden, the
silenced.

what does the
victim know,
what does the
victim know;
how is the
victim, the
opaque cellophane, the
object a
knowing thing. Read the rest of this entry »

to be

knowledge is not power.

ethics;

therein lies power,

the exemplar of understanding, exercising, and comprehending.

knowledge is not an object

Knowledge is not an object;
knowledge is a relationship
we imagine between our
memories of phenomena, that which
we call “information.”

“Relationship” describes a
dimension of information that
explains the behavior or
appearance of
phenomena that
we process into
understanding. Read the rest of this entry »

information economies

where do we begin to build away from capitalism 

we try to create new economies with crypto-currency

shift away from resource extraction and into resource generation

what is there but information?
