THE TRUTH OF EXTINCTION:EXTINCTION OF THE SUN

SOLE NERO

 

 

 

 

 

 

The former is of course a key trope in Levinas’s phenomenology of absolute alterity, wherein the radical passivity associated with the immemorial trace of the ‘other in me’ is associated with an ‘impossibility of possibility’ which disables intentional apprehension and ekstatic projection.

WAR ON THE STATE:STATE THOUGHT

THOUGHT

 

 

 

 

 

 

For Stirner discourses such as morality and rationality are fixed ideas or spooks.

They are apparitions, ideological abstractions that nevertheless have real political effects—they provide the State with a formal justification for its domination.

WAR ON THE STATE:CRITIQUE OF THE STATE

THOUGHT

 

 

 

 

 

Both Stirner and Deleuze see the State as an abstraction that transcends its different concrete manifestations, yet at the same time operates through them.

The State is more than a particular institution existing in a particular historical stage. The State is an abstract principle of power and authority that has always existed in different forms, yet is somehow ‘more than’ these particular these actualisations.

THE TRUTH OF EXTINCTION:BACTERIA-ARCHEA-EUCARYA

 BACTERIA-ARCHEA-EUCARYA

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Accordingly, thought must be weaned from its organic habitat and transplanted to some alternative support system in order to ensure its survival after the destruction of its terrestrial shelter. Lyotard’s protagonist suggests that this weaning process, which would provide cognitive software with a hardware that could continue to operate independently of the conditions of life on earth – ensuring the survival of morphological complexity by replacing its material substrate – has been underway ever since life emerged on earth.

DESTRUYENDO LOS NUEVOS DIOSES

A-DESTRUYENDO LOS NUEVOS DIOSES

 

 

 

 

 

 

Hemos visto hasta ahora cómo el nihilismo stirneriano, lejos de representar la conclusión de la voluntad desnadificadora, es el primer eslabón de un proceso que lleva a su ocaso todo el horizonte humanístico-metafísico.

THE TRUTH OF EXTINCTION:SOLAR CATASTROPHE

SOLAR CATASTROPHE

 

 

 

 

 

 

This latter question lies at the heart of Jean-François Lyotard’s ‘Can Thought go on Without a Body?’, the opening chapter from his  collection The Inhuman. Lyotard invites us to ponder philosophy’s relationship to the terrestrial horizon which, in the wake of the collapse of the metaphysical horizon called ‘God’ – whose dissolution spurred the Nietzschean injunction ‘remain true to the earth!’ (Nietzsche: 42) – has been endowed with a quasi-transcendental status, whether as the ‘originary ark’ (Husserl), the ‘self-secluding’ (Heidegger), or ‘the deterritorialized’ (Deleuze).

LA CIENCIA

CIENCIA

 

 

 

 

 

El problema de las relaciones de Nietzsche con la ciencia ha sido mal planteado. Se actúa como si estas relaciones dependiesen de la teoría del eterno retorno, como si Nietzsche se interesase por la ciencia (y aun así vagamente) cuando le favorecía el eterno retorno, y se desinteresase de ella cuando se le oponía.

THE TRUTH OF EXTINCTION:WILL TO LIE

WILL TO LIE

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Genealogy proceeds by positing the will to power as guarantor of the correlation between evaluation and a world that is only insofar as it is evaluated: the will is at once evaluating and evaluated, the agent of evaluation as well as its patient. Accordingly, for Nietzsche, the pivotal moment in the history of nihilism occurs at that juncture when the will’s drive to eradicate value from the world in the name of truth exposes truth itself as just another value.

THE TRUTH OF EXTINCTION:THE TURNING POINT

THE TURNING POINT

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Ultimately, nihilism’s consummation in the affirmation of eternal recurrence rescinds the privilege traditionally ascribed to knowing in favour of a premium on creative affirmation. For only the will that affirms indifference (recurrence as meaningless iteration of the ‘in vain’) is capable of making a difference by producing being, not as an object of representation, but as a creative power worthy of affirmation.

CANTIDAD Y CUALIDAD

CANTIDAD Y CUALIDAD

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Las fuerzas poseen una cantidad, pero tienen también la cualidad que corresponde a su diferencia de cantidad: activo y reactivo son las cualidades de las fuerzas. Presentimos que el proble ma de la medida de las fuerzas es delicado, porque pone en juego el arte de las interpretaciones cualitativas.
