re: The despot


 reading this section of rhizome: The despot 

  with Oliver Stone's Untold History of the United States. It's the combinations that work, almost sideways, that illuminate us .
     How history learns us and we learn it.

As a new colder war for some  and a hotter more savage  war for others has begun   the president of the United States reminding everyone that the days of gunboat diplomacy are far from over    . 
         the word despot comes to mind   ...  and behind  the notion and nation of  despot the formation of an imperial tyranny?


The despot


America is a special case. ...

The despot acts as a river, not a fountainhead, which is still a point

point, a tree-point or root; he flows
with the current rather than sitting

under a tree; Buddha's tree itself becomes a rhizome;

Mao's river and Louis's tree.

Has not America acted as an intermediary here as well?

For it
                                                  proceeds both by internal exterminations
                                                                                     and liquidations (not only the

                          Indians but also the farmers, etc.), and by successive waves of immigration

                                                                                                                    from the outside.

The flow of capital produces an immense channel, a
quantification of power with immediate
"quanta," where each person

                      profits from the passage of the money flow
                                                                   in his or her own way (hence the
                                    reality-myth of the poor man who strikes
                                                                                it rich and then falls into poverty again):

                                                          in America everything comes together, tree and channel, root and

                                                      rhizome. There is no universal capitalism,
                                                                     there is no capitalism in itself;
                       capitalism is at the crossroads of all kinds of formations,
                                                                              it is neocapitalism
                                                                                                           by nature.

It invents its eastern face and western face, and reshapes them
                                                                                         both—all for the worst.

'Le « jugement de Dieu » s’exprime aussi dans l’organisme, dans le corps de la médecine scientifique, dans le corps d’autant plus artificiellement morcelé qu’il est artificiellement unifié par la science, la médecine ou la philosophie dominantes qui en font un organisme aux frontières bien définies et infranchissables. L’organisme n’est pas le corps, mais ce qui impose au corps des fonctions, des liaisons, des organisations dominantes et hiérarchisées. Le CsO oscille entre deux pôles : l’organisme qu’on lui impose et le plan d’immanence sans frontières dans lequel il aspire à se déployer et à inventer de nouvelles expérimentations.'

re D for _____________ Tzara

I ' ll elaborate more on this series of observations and comments in  an upcoming broadcast .

    ______________ 1 . to suggest Tzara is the originator of specific points in DeleuzeoGuattarian concept machinery is not to lessen the value of them.

2. Nor is to suggest or open the 'paranoid' debate about false influence albeit there is the question of false pretenders versus the just plain old type of pretender pretence, conceit, concetta , ie. the concept at hand ...

3. Surely Tzara's 1918 manifesto not to my knowledge ever mentioned by either Felix Guattari or Deleuze. Had they read it? again I post a question to which I have no answer.

4 To state that Tzara arrived  at the ideas prior to Guattari and Deleuze is not even unusual . He lived before them both and was already entangling himself in the grand debates of philosophy, poetry and life.

5. This is just a quick thumbnail sketch of what I which to discuss in a future broadcast on this blog.

6.  My points are not to be taken literally but are points of departure and little ziggaggies around these ideas  which have become a little stale

   in the stinky offices of philosophy _______________a little outside air as they say.

_____________________ The Tzara machine was always good at injecting that .

deleuze likes to say it was gherasime lucas who learned him what he did but he got it all from Tristan Tzara

    including the Z______________le zigZag ____ the phrase line of flight is found in  Tzara's play Cloud Handerkerchief. the attack on psychoanalysis and the dialectic   (the image of the wolves  derives from Tzara's book of Where the wolves  drink...)

                                   none of which takes away from Deleuzy however it was Tzara got there first

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?

 excerpted from the final paragraphs of Blood Winches by Antonin Artaud and translated into the English by the mystical translator Jack Hirschman

  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).
