This paper is more an introduction to her kind of new materialism than it is about modern atrocities.

However and further, It is interesting the knowledge and plans for the future that we create for ourselves based on what appears to be an abundance of knowledge and information, but what turns out to be merely a minuscule consideration of the facts.

What we think is actually occurring, for term, that “place” or feature that we call reality…

…Cannot possibly be the case.

I think we should reconsider what The infamous critical theorist/philosopher Slavoj Zizek has to say about the whole thing.

The very notion of “human consciousness“, that facet of reality that extends itself out to everything knowable, is a catastrophe. A point of nonsense. A moment of utter ridiculousness — that is, how we usually understand it.

But, in so much as I can either understand those terms let alone this post, something else must be happening. Through all the theory and postulates which make for us a living, and nothing bad in that much…

What is actually happening must be something else. And, something in deed knowable, that is, which arises out of conventional knowledge yet does not reduce to have to answer to that convention. Some thing which conventional knowledge says is either moot Or beneath consideration, reflects merely a laziness rather than an epistemological truth..
