Anslem’s Argument for the Proof of the Existence of God, the Disruption of Time, and the Categorization of Philosophical Behavior.

I seem to have found a significance for Anslem's proof. It may be that it is not significance for whether God might exist, but, as I have said, significance for how I present ideas. We will start with the rendition from Princeton's site. I think they have a pretty good rendition there. Without all the strict logical… Continue reading Anslem’s Argument for the Proof of the Existence of God, the Disruption of Time, and the Categorization of Philosophical Behavior.

Philosophy, Colonialism and Partition.

Perhaps the title should have included "non-philosophy". lol This talk concerns the opening whereby philosophy is indicated to its method through the ending that supersedes its domain. Specifically, and in the context of Francois Laruelle's "Christo-fiction", that which supersedes any conventional appropriation is the quantum. In particular, there is no philosophical posture that is able to bring… Continue reading Philosophy, Colonialism and Partition.

…and sowing the seeds: Reply to Blake with draft excerpts from “The Second Moment”.

Reply to Terrence Blake's recent post over at Agent Swarm: As usual Terrence you pegged it. It's strange how I view it and actually I can totally agree with you and yet somehow there's something that I'm not agreeing with and really that has to do with my work, The strange situation that I find… Continue reading …and sowing the seeds: Reply to Blake with draft excerpts from “The Second Moment”.

A Brief Outline of the Bases of Object Orientation.

I find often that philosophers love to complicate everything and then turn around and tell you its simple, and then write a paper that uses all sorts of jargon. 😉 I think many philosophers dont even know any more wtf they are talking about. One might want to say or think that object orientation came… Continue reading A Brief Outline of the Bases of Object Orientation.

The Modern of Post Modernism; The Anthropocene, Object Orientation and the Possibility of Ground.

  I feel it is time to clear the air; the smoke of post-modernism still seems to linger. It is time we come to terms with what Post-Modernism means, what it meant, what it is. There is no debate in this; any debate that would uphold a sort of PM catch-all has missed the issue.… Continue reading The Modern of Post Modernism; The Anthropocene, Object Orientation and the Possibility of Ground.

the Divergent Proposal.

The other week I read a post that I believe was by Donna Haraway ( I could ne wrong) that was addressing something to the effect that was “the cresting and crashing of the Speculative Realism wave”, and again I was left in an odd sort of state. I don’t remember just what exactly her… Continue reading the Divergent Proposal.
