[D-G] Automation from the Souls of Artists.

You have pointed to why we think the Impossible Trident is being used
against the voting U.S. prisoners as a Democratic socialist deception,
as a decoy.

Firstly, we translate your Liebniz excerpt below as....'I take it for
granted that everything to be created is subject to change, and
therefore the Monad created as well, and that change is continual in
each.' We believe that indeed it is the basis for the spiritual
automaton, it is the basis for theogonic repetition and reproduction
that keeps the prisoners hostage within Pimp Jaba's harem and
protection-racket prison called religion.

To further plumb the deceptions used against Homo sapiens, we use
Bogue's (awful) example of Messaien as musician in Genosko's Deleuze
and Guattari: Critical Assessments of Leading Philosophers, pp.
240-254, Rhizomusicology: '....Although Deleuze and Guattari do not
propose a new technical vocabulary for musical analysis (per se
[italics]), they do offer a means of construing music as an open
structure that permeates and is permeated by the world, a reading of
the cosmos and music not as mechanical and mathematical but as machinic
and rhythmical -- what one might call, with a certain Panglossian
bravura, a "rhizomusicsomology." Chief among those who inspire Deleuze
and Guattari in this enterprise is Oliver Messaien, whose remarks on
rhythm and birdsong provide several of key concepts in "De la
ritournelle.' My purpose in this essay is to outline the basic features
of Deleuze and Guattari's rhizomusicosmology, and then to suggest some
ways in which Mille plateaux and the musical and theoretical works of
Messaien mutually illuminate one another. My object is not to identify
sources or trace influences, but to describe the process of "becoming"
that takes place between Deleuze-Guattari and Messaien -- one that is
paradigmatic of the "encounters" that generate the unpredictable
theoretical developments of Mille plateaux.
Musicorhizonomy....But obviously what draws Deleuze and Guattari to
Messaien is the composer's dedication to experimentation in all the
parameters of musical expression. Deleuze and Guattari call for a music
that puts in continuous variation all components," that forms "a
rhizome instead of a tree, and enters the service of a virtual cosmic
continuum, in which even the holes, silences, ruptures and cuts have a
part." (MP 121) In this regard, Messaien's music is exemplary. As early
as 1944, Messaien spoke in his composition classes about the
limitations of the Second Viennese School, in whose works pitch
structures alone are investigated while conventional rhythmic and
formal conceptions remained unexamined (see Golea 247). Throughout his
career, Messaien has experimented with rhythm and harmonic modes, and
in his works since Mode de valeurs et d'intensites (1949) he has
explored various serial and modal approaches to dynamics, timbre,
duration and other compositional components. One of the areas of most
intense experimentation in Messiaen's music is rhythm. Rhythmic music,
he states, "is music that scorns repetition, straight-forwardness and
equal divisions. In short, it's a music inspired by the movements of
nature, movements of free and unequal durations" (Samuel 33). For
Messaien, as for Deleuze and Guattari, rhythm and meter are
antithetical concepts, and what passes for "rhythmic music" (jazz,
military marches) he sees as the negation of true rhythm. Messaien
defines rhythm as "the change of number and duration.":

'Suppose that there were a single beat in all the universe. One beat;
with eternity before it and eternity after it. A before and an after.
That is the birth of time. Imagine then, almost immediately, a second
beat. Since any beat is prolonged by the silence which follows it, the
second beat will be longer than the first. Another number, another
duration. This is the birth of Rhythm.'

Is the reader quite sure that Guattari, who wrote on birdsong before
Deleuze did so, was actually influenced by this Catholic mafia
musician-convert? Giattari himself said that hios project was radically
atheist, and we certainly won't take that for granted. Here one can see
just where Messaien smuggles in his god as first-cause violence,
because Messaien is incorrect that the second beat is longer than the
first, which is only the perception of his DNA (sourced from the crusty
lips of a volcano, the original Mimetic Desire), and which concept
links to the deceptions involved in perceiving Bernie Sander's as the
Impossible Trident, as we will show, forthcoming.
