May E-Poetry Presentation precis (Buffalo, NY)

I will talk about the fluid semiotics of virtual world productions, in
terms of Kristevan semiosis and fluid logics governing both avatar and
object behaviors through scriptings and 'signage' embedded in scripts or
within the visible local and fluid landscape itself. I will relate all of
this to the future of human/organic society on the planet, with or without
the Internet, and I will do this in fifteen minutes. I would like audio-
video output for laptop, but will not need online connectivity.

Theses:

1. Culture is always already virtual.
2. Culture is always already abject and inscriptive.
3. Abjection and inscription are entangled, irresolute, corroding both
truth functions and definitions.
4. Culture is all the way down; every organism is a priori cultural.
5. Culture is intimately related to alterity.
6. Virtual worlds permit logical, physical, organic, sexual, linguistic,
and psychological flows, without fundamental basis.
7. Virtual worlds are the future of the exploration of inscription,
culture, and the imaginary.
8. A parabola leads from virtual worlds to the true-real physical world,
which is already produced, itself as virtual.
9. Physics is the structure of the true-real physical world.
10. The appetition of physical returns us to thesis 1.
