Wryting and

Wryting is clotted inscription, that is, writing inextricably merged with
flesh, body, organism; culture is the systemics and poetics of wryting.

On one hand, writing is digital, discrete, disconnected; on the other, it
is analogic flux, debris, corroded, syntactics pervaded by aura of scent,
gesture, tonalities, and so forth. Writing is always wryting, always
entangled with the fuzzy modalities of its production, virtual and

Wryting spews through sexual fantasy, obsessive thinking, compulsion
behavior; it is never the purity of signal and channel. Even with digital
code, interpretation blurs and moves through striations and membranes in
an irreducible hermeneutics.

The kernel of wryting is encoding, hermeneutics, protocols, and protocol
membranes or suites; legible code is illegible, illegible code is legible.
There is no coding without temporal coding, no wryting without immersion,
no wryting in time, no time for wryting.

All wryting entangles with poetics, poesis, autopoesis, impulse and drive;
all wryting accounts-for, is accountable, is unaccountable. Death and
untoward pain are wryting's dissolution; healing coagulates wryting in
similar formations. Death is the cessation of wryting formations, and the
promulgating of skeins of new wryting formations, among cultures and

Culture is all the way down, from one life-form to another; culture is
always inscription, always wryting. Wryting wrytes and is wrytten; what is
wrytten and what has been wrytten, wrytes.

It is impossible to isolate the discrete on the quantum level; think
instead of the granularity and corrosion of the symbolic. Interpretation
is meaning; wryting is never meaningless; the presence of a sign is
already a deconstruction of presence.

(A boy sees a mark in a field; a boy sees a mark on his body; a girl sees
a mark in a field a girl sees a mark on her body. A girl has a history; a
boy has a history. A boy reads a history of a girl; a girl reads a history
of a boy. A girl reads a book; a girl scents; a boy reads a book; a boy
scents. An organism sees a mark in a field; an organism sees a mark on its
body. An organism has a history; reads; scents.)

All protocols are protocol suites. (All readings and wrytings and hearings
and scentings are protocol suites. The organism hears the boy and the
girl; the boy and the girl hear the girl and the boy.) All protocol suites
promise the premise of fit; the premise of fixture; the premise of corral;
the premise of potential well; the potential of fetish; the maternal
premise and the paternal premise; the premise of home; the premise of
meaning; the premise of comprehension; the premise of hermeneutics; the
premise of spirit.

All codes are entangled in all bodies; all bodies are entangled in all
cultures; in all codes; in all protocol suites. The poetics of the world
is what one might think of a day; of a night; what one might think. The
poesis of the world inhabits death; death inhabits the poesis of the
world; poetics is a casting; poetics is a casting-off; is unnecessary;
think the poesis of the virtual vacuum; think the poesis of the black
hole; of information; of the corruption and corrosion of information; of
the body and the death of the body; of the recuperation of the body by
bodies. (Of the recuperation and decoding of the sexual body: sexuality is
always a decoding.)

The protocol sentence is a half-truth; is an institution; what is declared
has disappeared; what is declared is declared unentangled; is declared
discrete. Poetics recuperates poesis for an organism of interest; for an
interested organism. What is declared is lost; is already lost; is always
already lost. Loss inhabits the symbol; inhabits wryting; wryting inhabits
death; death inhabits writing. A inhabits B; B inhabits A; A portends B; B
portends A; A interprets B; B interprets A; A entangles B; B entangles A;
{A}{B} entangles { }. Wryting and culture inhabit rites of purification;
purification makes a hedge around the symbol; around the symbolic; the
hedge makes the symbolic possible; the hedge is the potential well of
meaning. How may one wryte wryting? One may not; wryting wrytes elsewhere;
wryting wrytes otherwise; wryting never just wrytes. Wryting is the
wrything of the hermeneutic; wryting is imminent and immanent; wryting is
a long way off; how may one wryte otherwise? (Desire wrytes otherwise,
does it knot?)

A story is that which has no story to tell; a story which is all the story
there is; a wryting.
