Subject: Re: [D-G] modus mothus
just as a footnote, i thought to say: the same thought (about essence and
existence), if you continued it further in your mind, justifies to you to
the shut down of any electric, electronic appliance
every week-end on saturday: Saturnus, the God of Time, after we have read
Hamlet, is out of joint and needs to rest. it is so surprising that the
goethian dogmatists and lovers of the signified, who adopted the
roman-hellenic cult of Saturnus, don't shut down the Media Era, the whole
internet, the whole two monthes of July and Augustus. they regulate the
servers of deleuze-guattari on spoon by moderation, would they not,
they would enjoy the warmth of the Sun, much more intensely, which, on a
deleuzian point of view is so pertinent. they would enjoy more the star
signifier. so Sunday the servers of dg need to close down please.
let's do something about it.
CC would you say, advises you not to follow the signs of logic of sensation
or language of the feelings(imperative signs)-
this is a deep zone in deleuze.
but to get to this depth,
you need to remain warm around your skin.
the internet of facebooks wants to freeze you, it wants to give you a cold.
you have to have a control on your own.
you need to be able to regulate the climate, decide when its warm and when
the servers of deleuze-guattari, as metaphors signified, cannot be out of
touch on Monday, the day of the Winds, sublunar worlds.
Internet needs to be the sublunar world, sunday and saturday are for the
aristocracy of the souls who can reach to Post Ptolemaic Civilizations..
