A machinic assemblage, through its diverse components, extracts its consistency by crossing ontological thresholds, non-linear thresholds of irreversibility, ontological and phylogenetic thresholds, creative thresholds of heterogenesis and autopoiesis. The notion of scale needs to be expanded to consider fractal symmetries in ontological terms… What fractal machines traverse are substantial scales. They traverse them in engendering them. But, and this should be noted, the existential coordinates that they ‘invent’ were always already there… we need to […]

(Source: NASA deep space photo) Agency demands a problem-space exactly as motion demands regulated (observed) space. Motion is distinguished from space by an observer: space is energy. Thus the discovery that space-time (energy) is at once both a pure sea of light waves folding and crashing in infinite variations as well as a discrete, orderly series of predefined, probabilistic signals, is one of the two great conceptual leaps of this century. The discovery that energy […]

(an outline of metaproblematics) 1 Problems are objects, or things which block our way. 1.1 A problem is a barrier to the composition of forces in time, and thus a revelation. 1.1.1 Problems do not only impede our abilities, but also allow for their full exercise. 1.1.2 Similarly, objects do not just cover part of the visual field but accomplish the depth and coherence of space. 1.2 A problem accomplishes the disruption and potential (sometimes […]
