Tibet and Artaud--- 1949 To have done with transcendence

.


 Artaud wrote about Tibet at the end of a text he was writing about a dream, a nightmare, and an abyss. The  French text was written between 1943 and 1949. It was written before the Chinese take over in 1950.

....


    And the thought came back to me that there was a spot in Tibet where abject monks use gibbets and winches in a certain valley that they've named  The Uterus of the Human Form, and where they claim to hold in chains all the consciousnesses of those men who want to escape their individual notions of man, either on the Physical Plane, or on the organic intellectual, neurotic , sensual Metaphysical Plane.
 


    And after an incalculable labor of years, they have succeeded in establishing a kind of archetypal anatomy before which, under the iron collars of their law, every born man must bend, on pain of being dissected and asphyxiated by them.
 



    I think Tibet is the only place on earth where this autocracy of the absolute  mind has desired to impose itself, and materially succeeded.
 



    There one can see endless iron collars, vises, gibbets, slip-knots, knee-guards, winches, ropes and garrotes; and from temple to temple the monks go around making them function according to principles as old as the sempiternal human routine, like the scansion of a somber music, where the interstice is like a meat all prepared to be steam cooked.
 



    And I think that many dreams brutally transformed into nightmares  come from the monkeyshines of a humanity which the monks have never been able to enter.
 



    And wasn't it predicted that before 1950 the hand of the monkey would unhook the secret clock face of history and come face to face with the race of men in order ot pla claim to the lofty thundering space of the Race of Reality?
 



   P.S. For isn't true that in the ceremonial millennial pomp of the Dalai-Lama , the ancient sign of a monkey-hand grabbing a man's testicles indicates from origin the race of the Lamas believes itself to be born?

'... the dalai lama ..'


  Me: I got  this sensation he believes in immanence
  Deleuze:  the same .. the very same sense pervades me
  Me : interesting isn't it? in spite of the respect paid to statues...  after all they're deities of this world.

Deleuze... anexactly!

 The following is highly experimental and is meant to serve as the starting mistakes for a larger project currently under development. This project examines Gilles Deleuze’s ‘Logics’. We have two “logic” books by Deleuze, Francis Bacon: The Logic of Sensation and The Logic of Sense. I believe that Deleuze’s Cinema 1 and 2 comprise a third logic book, what we might title The Logic of Signs. All three ‘logics’ share the common logic of affirmative synthetic disjunction [I discuss this further pp.204-205 of "In the Still of the Moment"].

'Abécédaire Foucault Alain Brossat librairie texture 27 juin

===========================================================


Les éditions Demopolis & la librairie Texture, Alain Brossat

vous invitent à la présentation de ABÉCÉDAIRE FOUCAULT
 
http://u.jimdo.com/www21/o/s829e0e1b0d919d6c/img/ic4062ad2e206d89b/1401533557/std/image.jpg En croisant et combinant des textes animés par le souci d’entrer dans la discussion foucaldienne contemporaine, toujours plus animée, et d’autres qui sont portés par son inspiration sans se rattacher à une quelconque orthodoxie, cet ouvrage s’efforce de mettre en évidence la façon dont une pensée forte comme celle de Foucault peut agir sur ses lecteurs en les incitant à se tenir à la hauteur des enjeux aussi bien philosophiques que politiques de leur époque. Cet Abécédaire n’est pas un essai sur la pensée de Foucault mais bien plutôt un cheminement avec lui.
En adoptant le principe de l’abécédaire, il ne s’agit pas de passer en revue les principales notions à l’œuvre dans le travail de Foucault mais plutôt de tenter de rendre le lecteur sensible à la puissance d’une pensée constamment animée par le souci de l’actuel (le présent tel qu’il est, pour nous, en question).

from Corry Shores' Augustine-- brief snippet broadcast

§24

Whatever may be the manner of this secret foreseeing of future things, nothing can be seen except what exists. But what exists now is not future, but present. When, therefore, they say that future events are seen, it is not the events themselves, for they do not exist as yet (that is, they are still in time future), but perhaps, instead, their causes and their signs are seen, which already do exist. Therefore, to those already beholding these causes and signs, they are not future, but present, and from them future things are predicted because they are conceived in the mind. These conceptions, however, exist now, and those who predict those things see these conceptions before them in time present.
[164]



Send us a sign



Chapter XIX

§25


Augustine now asks how it is that God teaches the prophets of things in the future. [165]
Just reading this again I am thinking of the 3 lines spoken of in A Thousand Plateaus. I am looking for a sneaky parallel  a laughter that echoes among the writers of time and centuries . Of the Authors of Geology and time it would seem theres no connecting yet time resists matter and rocks, or strata thus geology. or is the other way that's what most think 
but maybe its the other way
With respect to Signs I am thinking of Proust and Signs  and the meaning Signs at all levels yet plays in our lives more so than symbols 
Sings Signs signing her name
§26

So there are three times, past, present, and future, but only insofar as they are given in the present. It is more accurate to speak of a time present of things past; a time present of things present; and a time present of things future.


But even now it is manifest and clear that there are neither times future nor times past. Thus it is not properly said that there are three times, past, present, and future. Perhaps it might be said rightly that there are three times: a time present of things past; a time present of things present; and a time present of things future. For these three do coexist somehow in the soul, for otherwise I could not see them. The time present of things past is memory; the time present of things present is direct experience; the time present of things future is expectation. If we are allowed to speak of these things so, I see three times, and I grant that there are three. Let it still be said, then, as our misapplied custom has it: “There are three times, past, present, and future.” I shall not be troubled by it, nor argue, nor object-- always provided that what is said is understood, so that neither the future nor the past is said to exist now. There are but few things about which we speak properly-- and many more about which we speak improperly--though we understand one another’s meaning.
[165]

Re________Pirates & Revolutionaries: Augustine on Time, Confessions Book 11, summary

A quick note to advise anyone reading this blog to go and see for yourself  Corry Shores' new and recent entries about Augustine's  digressions and confessions about  Time_ Augustine's a beautiful writer in his own right,  and  
  is       A u g u s  t i n e                          going to refind himself in Shores' reading and re-reading of the 
                  

i                             deas of the old sinner and saint. 

                     A new deterritorialization? a line of escape we'd not seen or heard previously? a  novel and more daring  machining in the twist of time?             a time machine summarizing the books flight of grace. Le t us see and read . Surely it's to be a discovery as I too haven't read the entry and look forward to so doing   ~ .
