If the moment of NAARP significance has passed in its strong metaphysical form, we are in the moment (for some) of insignificance. This moment can be superceded (by NAARPs) only by epistemic certainty of the deity (which might entail strong supernaturalism) or … Continue reading Insignificance/Neurosis/AI Psychosis: Notes
In this informal chat Johns continues his thoughts on the threefold of experience (Heidegger) and the constant conflicts of concepts which create productive difference (Hegel’s dialectic). Johns suggests that the contemporary ‘subject’ is determined by societies power to employ it … Continue reading Charles William Johns: Tautological Assimilation (Part Two)
In this informal chat Charles Johns, editor of The Neurotic Turn, tries to describe his two philosophical terms ‘neurosis’ and ‘assimilation’. He also tries to explain why he thinks these descriptions become necessarily disclosed and why they are necessarily prevalent … Continue reading Charles Johns – Neurosis and Assimilation (Part One)
It is a testament to the situation that I feel embarrassed writing this. However part of my writing has always been anecdotal as I feel this helps it hook [the theory] to experience.

A blur. A wedding party. A synthesis. A darkness. Are these identical? Of course not they differ wildly as accretions. Coffee, black coffee has accreted the power of a gateway, inextricably tied to scorched engine oil. But a blur, a … Continue reading On the Train: Cooper’s Accelerationist Coffee.
There is no spatial, chronological or privileged difference anymore between the real and the concept it mirrors. The real is imaginary and the imaginary is real. It is the closing of this distance that creates a flat, immanant and blindly … Continue reading Assimilation, Simulation, Neurosis and The Sensitive Heritage of Concepts.
Accelerationism in its naive right/left format focuses too heavily on physical technology. Left wing human emancipatory aims are noble but do not seem to recognize the kind of terrible truth that the Land-Narp, amongst others, have grasped. The criteria now … Continue reading Pneuminous Accelerationism
This is assuredly the only mission left (mission-left) for a large quantity of Narps working for a variety of egalitarian, left wing etc agencies. “He must be stopped!” one shouted “it must be stopped!” shouted another, aware that the accretion had spread from the gendered regional processor and now extended powerful pneuminous tentacles across the world-accretion. “But how?” another shouted “By awakening humanity to the evils of capitalism!” came a voice, “By reawakening humanity!” came another, “By using the technology that threatens us to feed us all!” and they continued in this way for some time. But they were not … Continue reading Defeat the Land-Grabber-Narp.
