Semiotic Splatter http://www.alansondheim.org/maine107.jpg - those three terms, gamespace, edgespace, blankspace - and for example melville's 'whiteness of the whale' or moby dick itself - the book-archive - a splattering of signs, partial structures, strange attractors across texts and horizons - consider fall foliage - the potential randomness in color transformations. for in blankspace signs jostle - forms of roiling, coagulations, even fractals filling the space of uneasy dreams - things brought out from below - http://www.alansondheim.org/maine102.jpg - it's this that characterizes blankspace, the splatter need not have structure, or rather brings along, with it, partial structures, partial objects, fragments - from the 'outside, the realm of structure, of absolute 0 and 1 - they appear broken, corrupt - from within, they're just 'what they are' - hard to agree with this, for example against the totalizations of classical marxism, cultural marxism, semiotics, psychoanalytics, catastrophe theory, the subaltern of the internet of things in 'chorus' - http://www.alansondheim.org/maine130.jpg humans interpret signs in trails as signifiers in a deeper sense - the modalities for example of nature or maqam in arabic music - we're always re-centering - production of ptolemaic epicycles - the finesse of mensuration as tolerance decreases creates ruptures, fissures, cracks, across all of this - tortoise-shell divination - reading the cracks as a _precise_ example of splatter at work - empires fail and fall, rise and succeed on such - the poesis of the sign whose promise and premise is taken for grant, all - encompassing - the splatter of american flags and violent rhetoric - all disorganized with deeper organization - temporary communalities - trotskyites debating through the decline of the red son - those deeper organizations attempting the barriers of gamespace - or _gamespacing_ - the empire of the sign which collapses with the sign which collapses with empire - semiosis percolations - http://www.alansondheim.org/maine137.jpg within those cracks and fissures of edgespace, fissures grow - lichens with triple or quadruple organic communities - what begins as noise ends as inscription - as alphabet - alphabetics as generators - among the veering gyre of semiotic splatter - selves as self-organizations - things fall apart - it can't happen here - as selves tighten hold - all growths die - nothing is reborn - the blankness of the magic mystery slate - it all begins again - nothing begins again - among thus, nothing begins - nothing ends - then, what consciousness perceives - the game and its negations of perfections - where culture begins - the clutter - the making sense - the sense - the turning away, the scapegoat or scapeboat - the refugee - splatter is never self- contained - never contained - the cleanup of the clean and proper body, sweep-up of the world, denials of genocide - the genocide itself - the *cide as an operator - edgespace crackles on the precipice of construction and destruction - gamespace names these nonsensical terms, con* and de* and their placement in culture - lisp comes to mind, programs and potential wells - the minutiae of gamespace - the game of throwns - http://www.alansondheim.org/maine158.jpg the reading of the world is the writing of the world - world becomes worlding, origin, its appearance as already written - the logic of the origin necessarily a reversal - there's no tomorrow - there's only closure - enclosure - inscription devouring the ikonic - becoming the understood - someone or other writes a book - http://www.alansondheim.org/maine167.jpg archive's _origins_, preservation - archive becomes the state - splatter cleaned up - 99% of all germs annihilated - new antibiotics from _new_ fungi, bacteria, molecular biologies, crispr - things are _on their way_ - archive equivalent to redundancy - someone or other burns a book - chatter of things among things - apocalypse now and then - our enemy the archive - the time of time - http://www.alansondheim.org/maine179.jpg k% time echo time time 0.00s real 0.00s user 0.00s system k% time time echo time time 0.00s real 0.00s user 0.00s system 0.00s real 0.00s user 0.00s system suture the process with the instantaneous - splatter collapse - no due process, process always due - http://www.alansondheim.org/maine107.jpg process due and paid for - k9% wc zz >> zz k10% wc zz >> zz 100 689 4467 zz 101 693 4495 zz - [+++] -> ...
