theory, longish, on life, animal, vegetable
>>... Foucault argues that with the emergence of the human sciences at the birth of biopower, the animal is not excluded or forgotten but quite the opposite: animality is the dominant apparatus for investigating both what life is and what life does. Th e living is no longer primarily vegetable (sessile and awaiting mere categorization) but understood as evolving, appetite-driven, secret, discontinuous, mendacious, inscrutable, always on the prowl, looking for an opening to break free. As Foucault puts it, “Transferring its most secret essence from the vegetable to the animal kingdom, life has lef t the tabulated space of order and become wild once more” (OT 277). And this is of course not just a development within the narrow conf i nes of biology. Foucault could in fact cue here the advent of philosophical modernity itself. One might speculate that Hegel’s 1807 Phenomenology of Spirit (where human life itself is refash-ioned as nothing other than unfathomable discontinuity and animal appetite— in short, desire) shows the way for later nineteenth-century thought, which in turn opens a path directly to our day: from Darwin’s evolution of life, through Freud’s life of the unconscious, and Nietzsche’s life of self-overcoming, all the way to Schumpeter’s neoliberal life of creative destruction. All of these forma-tions depend completely on the bedrock connection of life to an animating, hidden, “wild” animality of desire: both prior to and beyond the human yet somehow still constituting that humanity as its secret essence.<<

Postmodern control is designated as turbulence simulation or programmed catastrophe- a runaway process of accident or emergency quantizing typified by implosive turbulence in the core of the world system and its overexposure. Sector 5 pushes the cartography towards an antifascist
fluid mechanics otherwise denoted as an ethics of speed or a tao of turbulence.

kako plovi moj sahtijan,
silnim valom o hridi razbijan,
al' ne otvoren,
kako mladost moja prolazi,
kako dragi drugoj odlazi,
al ne ljubi je
zelen vali njemu recite,
da i ja bez njega ne mogu,
da i ja bez njega ne umijem,
moj sahtijan prinesite,
i na obali otvorite,
u njemu ruho svo moje je,
za njega vezeno,
za njega ljubljeno.
(Božo Vrećo performs as both female and male, as he sees himself as a person of both genders. At the beginning of his career, Vrećo wore men's suits, then decided to perform as what he considers his true self. It is his belief that a person who sings songs of courage should present nothing but honesty to their audience, which is one reason why more traditional audiences love him. He takes offense at those who consider him a drag performer.)
through the day
Black and red
dark and humid
fingers running through
under the skin
to our skin
to my face
devices of eros
devices of death
echoes of excitement
through the day
food and their thighs
feet, hair, eyes,
lips, nails, breasts
echoing echoing echoing echoing...
Too much unreleased érotisme.
New underwear is functional part 1.
Breathing in your face.
The light getting dark, and bluish, and reddish at the same time.
Flows run deep. Abyss of anger,
outputs so wanted, so
to run away,
to find islands of pleasure.
to the beats,
to the slow bites of sadness.
Gasps for black liquid,
Did you know that you don't need X-Windows for graphics on Linux? Here's a few console programs that can display graphics using the framebuffer:
Display and manage images directly from the command line.
A simple web browser without CSS and JS, can display inline images when switched to graphics mode with the -g param: 'links2 -g'
Play videos straight from the console! Can be a little tricky.
(And yes, I used a 5:4 monitor the screenshots.)

"I notice that the people who are afraid of machine super-intelligence are almost exclusively white men. I don't think anxiety about AI is really about AI at all. I think it's some white men's displaced anxiety upon realizing that women and people of color have and have always had sentience, and are beginning to act on it on scales they're unprepared for. There's a reason that AI is almost exclusively gendered as female."
How many results from deep learning are thrown away? What happens to all the 'not useful' data?
If Bruce Sterling's name on twitter is balkan slavic (Serbian, Croatian, Slovene, Macedonian, Bosnian..) transliteration "Boris Srebro" does that mean that the future of cyb/r/e/punk belongs to the balkans?
ok ok, I know, white male cis het etc... of course, but anyway, kul jebote? voli on balkance!
