Reiteration is a common theme in philosophy. To this end I feel compelled to reiterate one of the central theses involved here. This is the notion of the concept being able to alter the thing it conceptualises. This has been … Continue reading The Concept as Interface to the Umbratic (On the possibility of talking to vectors)
When trying to describe the possibility that information stuck together (a pneuminous accretion) might exert an effect upon the substrate that it is attached to, one easily becomes misunderstood. The chief confusion comes in conflating a kind of physical level … Continue reading Notes on the Phenomenological Limits of Strong Pneuminous Interactions (Magick).
What do we mean by the claim of insignificance? Basically that in an unfeeling potentially infinite universe we have no position of meaning to anything other than ourselves. A lot of discourse in certain philosophical/cultural spheres turns on the obvious … Continue reading On [In]Significance
The accretive theory in its strong form (agnostic disjunction: magick-obtains side) would give us a notion of art in which a) there exists the incoherent art-accretion and b) that the vector that is interpreted as art is imbued literally with … Continue reading Notes on the Application of the Pneuminous Accretive Theory to Art.
This is an attempt to solve the problem I often perceive to occur in OOO in its sloppy ignorance of all the linguistic philosophical progress that was made last century. I think it’s pertinent because the language relation is crucial … Continue reading Transcendental Vectors (i)
The philosophy of pneuma herein does not try to be some jargon like nonsense -though of course hardly any writers set out to achieve this. Terms like this become a kind of short hand for what the author wants to convey. Of course it’s so … Continue reading Notes on Clarification of Pneuminous Accretive theory (i).
How then are we to conceive of that endless source of problems: the object? The stickiness of pneuma (information) suggests something like this: There is a founding level of pneuma founded still again upon a kind of transcendental phantasy of … Continue reading The Grammar of Concepts and their Vectors.
Lovecraft has become a little bit cultural-theoretically trite. One cannot move without jostling up against the old ones in certain theory worlds. Yet of course the power of these beings either as allegory/hyperstition/actual alien/paranormal reality is what sustains them. Here … Continue reading Azathoth and Yog-sothoth: Analysis.
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.
Firstly here marks the first attempt to re-appropriate/accrete the term pneumatology which I originally read in Nietzsche (Human all too Human). Hitherto when writing about the philosophy of pneuma I have tended to call it pneuminosity and for some reason … Continue reading Pneumatology and Chaos Magick
