philosophy. the decay of philosophy

disgust: "Philosophy won't save our skins." (original text)

it's all decayed, worn out, done for, words, latinates, some
additions, neologisms, borrowings, gone without a trace. or the
trace below, the decay, elimination of redundancies. the bones
are as useless as anything else, data-mining consumption of
ascii byte-con production. what energy's kept me alive through
this. the original text 2007, published by Linguablanca,
Chapbook 18, editions Menu Banal. turned into sludge, slew. you
can almost smell the words coming off the page. whatever stave
of death, irreproachable, unrecognizable, useless. no room for
this. no room for text. this. no room for original.



how to begin philosophy, the process of philosophizing, an
activity, a form labor, philosopher and production. whether is
cast asunder, it interpretable, that is, translatable; remains
intrinsic act therefore bound. if bound, substance or thing
continuity its creation, some other substance, other, asunder;
production one with production; producer here beginning without
return, recourse in sense writing designating this particular
which named 'philosophy.'


such, because evidence: cannot rather return would be always
only from present present, operable upon remnant production, but
remnant, drawn into presence, re-presence. evident undoing not
doing, alters, things have altered, altered within world;
altering world. world what evident, recourse, return. unbounded,
bounded boundary delineation return; continuous unbinding.
