210 - Suburban Transpondency

Suburban Transpondency returns in 2014 with a good old fashion Skype conversation with friend and fellow podcaster, The MMD (Maharaja Mack Daddy) of “I’m Done With This Podcast”. We chat about MMD’s new dog, how far Adam’s head is up his own ass, business cards, vaping vaporizers, tiny home vs trailer living, corporatizing relationships, Adam’s pretentious OKcupid profile, MMD’s crappy computers, etc.

"If you bring forth what is within you, what you bring forth will save you. If you do not bring forth what is within you, what you do not bring forth will destroy you."

You are the only infinite,
and you’re the only profound,
and you’re the only not-knowable,
and you’re that whom everyone
seeks and doesn’t find,
and no one can know you against your will,
and no one can praise you against your will…
You’re the only boundless,
and you’re the only unseen.
You’re the only unborn.
— A Coptic Gnostic hymn

That is not dead which can eternal lie,
And with strange aeons even death may die.”
H.P. Lovecraft

"I have frequently wondered if the majority of mankind ever pause to reflect upon the occasionally titanic significance of dreams, and of the obscure world to which they belong. Whilst the greater number of our nocturnal visions are perhaps no more than faint and fantastic reflections of our waking experiences—Freud to the contrary with his puerile symbolism—there are still a certain remainder whose immundane and ethereal character permits of no ordinary interpretation, and whose vaguely exciting and disquieting effect suggests possible minute glimpses into a sphere of mental existence no less important than physical life, yet separated from that life by an all but impassable barrier."

Yog-Sothoth knows the gate. Yog-Sothoth is the gate. Yog-Sothoth is the key and guardian of the gate. Past, present, future, all are one in Yog-Sothoth. He knows where the Old Ones broke through of old, and where They shall break through again. He knows where They have trod earth’s fields, and where They still tread them, and why no one can behold Them as They tread.”

“The sciences, each straining in its own direction, have hitherto harmed us little; but someday the piecing together of dissociated knowledge will open up such terrifying vistas of reality, and our frightful position therein, that we shall either go mad from the revelation or flee from the deadly light into the peace and safety of a new dark age.”

I rub out your thing police forever, for Eve-R
I rub out the words of Marx Lenin Einstein Freud fraud forever
I rub out the formulas of Einstein Oppenheimer forever
I rub out their words forever

Listen, all all all,
In you I cancel all your words forever

That is all all all, Hassan Sabbah.”

"To recognize nothing is true, and everything is permitted. That laws arise, not from divinity, but reason.”

"We don’t need anyone to tell us what to do. We are free to follow our own path. There are those who will take that freedom from us, and too many of you gladly give it. But it is our ability to choose … that makes us human. There is no book or teacher to give you the answers, to show you the path. Choose your own way! Do not follow me, or anyone else."

“Anything that happens, happens.

Anything that, in happening, causes something else to happen, causes something else to happen.

Anything that, in happening, causes itself to happen again, happens again.

It doesn’t necessarily do it in chronological order, though.”

~ Douglas Adams

Reverse Temporal Engineering is when you expect something to happen and then LATER decide to go back in time in order to make it happen.

For example, if you decide you want a pizza, and a version of you from the future uses his time machine and brings one to you the moment you decide you want it, everything is swell and dandy for you.

However, what this means is that in the future, you must invent and build a time machine for your personal use, so that you may make (or purchase, depending on which is more convenient) the same exact pizza of your previous consumption so that you may bring it back to your past self, desiring the pizza in the original situation.

Therefore, if A+B=C, and B is dependent on the future, B is therefore dependent on your integrity and willingness to have C occur, and if B does not occur, then A will equal nothing, and you will be left without a pizza.

"Ideas once but no longer liberating. Ideas like fruits have moments of peak ripeness when they are best consumed and later moments when their taste is less fresh and wholesome"

The idea that everything is interconnected has become a staple of intellectual life. As a related phenomenon, “contextualisation” is now the method of first resort throughout the humanities. This lecture opposes the general trend of emphasising systems and wholes over autonomous individuals. Among the greatest drawbacks of holistic ontology is its inability to explain disruptions and surprises in any system it studies. At best, one posits some sort of “materiality” lying outside all formatted systems that serves as their underground source of change, a theory that fails for a variety of reasons. The only alternative is to adopt an object-oriented model of fully formatted entities lying beyond the grasp of the human mind and even of each other. After providing some theoretical background for this claim, I will consider several recent political phenomena that are better understood by an object-oriented approach than a holistic one.
