—- Just as a philosophical tidbit:
Slavoj Zizek says that is the nature of the subject: it always acts to late.
This is the symptom of modernity, not a result.
Which goes to the question:
What does it mean that “we” will have no viable future?
We as in every last human being? Or, we as the assumption?
This is the modern subject: the one that is-knowing is knowing-after, the end a necessary aspect of what it is to know in this particular manner.
It is ironic because by the time the world “ends” human beings will have “forgotten” what it was that was ending. The modern subject is the always-already constituted in this state of crisis. It cannot be overcome because the overcoming is a result of the knowing, the critical moment of the receding signifier of problem. Culminating in a human centered cause of the problem is the natural course of the human being in this manner of knowing.
That means we are constituted in irony:
– We are alienated from any “macro” solution, and yet not to act yields the result by which we concluded there is nothing we can do.
– We must act. For the act confirms that we are responsible for the universe, albeit ironically.
As every cosmology: Thus is featured in subjectivity an atypical manner of knowing where the modern manner is merely incorrect as a manner to discern the matrix of problem-solution.
peace be with you
