—–  I’m posting this essay because it might be informative to some in general.

I have not read it. I read pretty much the first three sentences, and then I stopped…

Is Graham Harman part of the New Materialist genre?

 It’s interesting, how the motions of theory move through existence:  It’s an odd sort of experience of people thinking that they’re thinking, but not really thinking. It’s like they read authors and then they move in the opposite direction in their portrayal of them. Not just a different direction, but they really begin to address some thing that has, sometimes to my view, not very much about the author that they’re referring to is really talking about..

 It’s quite strange.

 I don’t think that Dr. Harmon will read my blog here, but I’m fairly certain that he denies that he’s a materiallist. And so here’s this author, publishing, a paper, if you notice that this is a proof, or some sort of draft for some publication that’s coming out, and the first couple sentences they pretty much have incorrect. I mean, unless Dr. Harmon just doesn’t give a shit anymore about what people label him, and I think he wouldn’t give a shit because he’s got his life and then it’s fine I suppose. 😄

 I am pretty certain that Graham Harmon has denied that he’s a materialist. 

The author also puts object oriented ontology, Graham Harmon’s project, under Karen Barad and the new materialist people, when actually he was coming up at the same time. It’s just is justified to say that the new materialist are a type of object, oriented ontology, which is patently ridiculous.  That’s why I didn’t read the rest of his article, because he’s pretty much telling me that he’s living in a fantasy land of his own academically semantic making.

It just amazes me. Why people are so ready to move into subjective meaning over that objective truth.

And: don’t you think it’s strange, me, as a counselor, as a mental health counselor, that I would be saying that people should move more in the direction of objective truth, rather than semantic, and the situating of terms as an ontological basis?!

 I would think that in itself forget your mind, moving as to what is truly happening in contrast to the meaning that you’re really coming up with.

Have you begun to think?

I feel it goes all back to postmodernism. People love the meaning they make, so much that, often, they are unable to hear what someone else is saying.

Whatever people wanna call themselves, really the first title of the writing should be postmodernist and then parentheses (whatever they’re trying to name themselves).

Honestly, I think the real issue is that philosophers are never clear about really what they’re talking about, nor what they’re talking from in their proposals, but, due to that they are blind to their assumptions, as well that they are even blind to being blind to them. And that’s the basis for post modern academic theory. 

If you’re curious about why I say this, you can check out my blog posts from probably three or 4+ years ago on this very blog.

Have a great day.

Chameleon theory (theories)… Everlasting worlds…

—– Real objects withdraw from view and relation. Real objects arise in this manner encrusted with qualities that come into appearance as to embody or correlate with the terms which pose to identify them.
Yet, in truth, terms merely float like Pacific Islands, over the molten core of the real object.

Thus, in truth, we speak less of how terms are correlated with other terms or encrustments, less of what argument may appear as more true or more plausible than another, and more of what is actually occurring in that activity of knowing anything at all.

The Irony of Blogging with a Sense of Substance

The irony is that blogging, by its very nature, is a motion of modern subjective materialism.

People who are interested in true substance are not often reading blogs.

In true Zizekian form, The blogosphere is a place where imaginary transcendence is verified to an absolute epistemological horizon.

Truly, it is real.

The question is: might we speak of this transcendence directly, instead of perpetually suspending it in what we might want to call the “spirit affirming“ nothingness of semantic inspiration, aka religious Spirituality?

Then, we should note what offends.

For, this offense marks where discussion stops. Where discussion revolves and involves nothing of substance.

What we are asking for with object orientation is to continue the discussion into that uncomfortable area.

An epistemological horizon left to its own operation, un-hacked, is the definition of a religious cosmology, the heart of ideological power.

Parts, Objects, and the Event: less and more

It is less a assemblage of parts that, placed piece meal into a storyboard semantic collage, that constitutes an event.

It is less the pieces of objects that come together in order for us to find and understand what an object is.

Rather

It is more the Event that brings about the whole instance and significance of what an object actually is such that parts have meaning. The object organizes knowledge around itself.

The weaving of threads brings material about to constitute a blanket, say, but that blanket itself is only partially available to knowledge through the material occasion.

The blanket arrives only at the event of being that is a blanket.

The blanket itself thus recognizes its material in a way that the material can not quite appreciate or comprehend of its object…

…the jump…The Leap is not made by hoping: It is not made at all.

Guattari and Deleuze’s Modern Teleology

Two Routes unto objects constitute the truth of the universe.

New Material Law

a = all possible material

b = all impossibility of possible material.

All the impossibility of possible material accounts for any thing that is not accountable as material.

a+b = every real thing.

Every real thing is qualified by either a or b.

x = the number of possible instances

An instance is a more-than-one. An instance never arises as one, since one requires an other for its ability to arise to itself. Any posit which argues differently merely proves this instance is true. That is, the definition is not true, but the instance itself is indeed true.

It can only be denied, but not proven so without the covert act.

An argument which does indeed argue something different, is subject to the condition of the universe, C.

C = (a+b) ^x

C is the entirety of possible universe.

Once this is found, only two possibilities arise:

The Real Material

And what we must then call

The True Object (Substance).

This fact is due to the redundancy of material in its possibility and impossibility, whether we call it material or use a different term for it.

That is, once we reach C, the true description of universe, then C becomes subject to being a condition of real material (either a or b).

Hence, it is not nothing that arises outside or beyond the universe C, nor other universes.

Rather, the nothingness that arises is merely part of the real universe.

This is true, since no possibility arises outside of its instance. For any other possibility, again, would be redundant.

The situation which confounds the reality of this situation is that such truth has knowable content, content that we may call substance, that brings into question the real condition of materiality (a+b) as a total accounting of the universe.

Therefore, since the true content of the real universe is not reckoned by or against or in relief of nothing, the true content of the universe is not simply everything, (as a platitude or truism), but must rather involve a different manner or orientation upon what real material objects are in themselves, and thus what information they are yielding to knowledge.

Two Routes upon or otherwise into things.
