OF THE MODERN
Audiovisual materials for thinking about the next great cognitive breakthrough of the Collapse
So Post-Modernism was right for the wrong reasons, and without Marxism having been wrong?
Who the fuck was therefore right?
What then is the meaning of the human, if the "modern" is already either impossible or nothing more than a "living dead"?
Are we "modern" worm meat?
Did God die in the 19th century, and the Revolution in the 20th?
What is left, then?
Let our intellectuals be silent, let our philosophers throw themselves from the megaliths of the great cities of modern phallic man, let the workers at once lower their arms and let the productive chains cease their movements, and let the women stop their "liberating march" at once.
Modernity has been defeated... by modernity itself.
Listen to nature, watch the insects, admire the societies of the ancients, look at the stars, pay attention to the intelligence of squirrels, the cunning of a cat, the faithfulness of your dog, because maybe there we will find some (really useful) answer to what is coming: Hell.
In the Wild!
In the Stars!
Not in Marxism,
Not in Science,
Not in Technology,
Not in "Human Values".
We are the Plague of the World!
We are not in a position to dictate "values", let alone to Nature violated by our explosive humanity.
Modernity has been defeated... by Modernity itself!
Let us reflect again, then, on reality, just as when we discovered the power of fire, the technique of clay, the usefulness of the wheel and the unfathomable energy of atoms.
We will certainly need it on Mars.
