think about it, somehow without writing any of the actual words you
are able to understand who I am, yet the lack of formal names still
upsets you. seems like you are not satisfied by incorpeal knowlege
/truth but additionally desire some territorialized dogma of form or
identity. Do you like to territorialize with everything?  I am
interested in knowing what is this "treated properly" business about??
 Am I going to be on you r "list?" ...perhaps the knowlege is not
enough for you but it must also fit some program of reality that you
envision, (what is it? it sounds exciting. I have friends in the
military who are required to keep similar logs, do you have an agency
that you must report this to?)

I'm sure cologne is a skeery place to live, but honestly, how would it
feel to be in beruit or nyc? tel aviv is nice. of course it is a
terrible feeling but millions of people deal with it rationally
everyday. how do they do it, are they super intelligent masterminds
who are fully conscious of their situation. I am sure most are similar
to you or I. remember the cold war? so this crisis... it is an old
game we are asked to play (we can even go back to the inquisition  or
alexander vs oriental despots.. if we must remember). As you say, I am
sure spinoza is very much responsible, but the more direct relation
must go to hobbes and his fears of the spanish armana re: leviathon.
hobbes set the  christian/apocolytic tone very intentionally by
defining exacty what is the improvement of control between kings and
republics... kings cannot engineer social structures the way
constitutional republics can. it is a tremendous difference of
despotic power if compared to the barbaric asiatic despots, just in
terms of strategy these despots have much less power then a
republican. so the crisis instigates this strategy-game of engineering
and it is an old game of crisis.

ultimately the crisis asks us to act out of fear instead of
rationality.. and from within nash's game then consciousness becomes
limited to the tempo of game play... like the chronos which scans the
aieon. hwenk, do you realize that you are giving me the exact same
line that the cia gives me everyday in the news programs? look at the
strange heading you have choosen for this thread... sounds like a fox
news program, "rampant paranoia" "fear" "fear" "anti-christ"
"apocolypse"... how utterly boring... is this the agenda-line you want
to push on us who read this list? If it isn't then you should figure
out a way to talk about these very real issues w/o submitting to some
unfortunate psy-op game play, as an intellectual you must go beyond
the counter intelligence that surrounds us. I don't mean random lines
of flight (a la derrida or zizak's obnoixious virtuals) but
pointed-circles that direct communication towards consciousness. there
is no other way.

i dunno if you read the foucault list, I do, and I must say it is very
silent right now. there is no discussion.. period. I am very much
interested in his last book on sexuality... the care of the self... i
really get a lot from that. but foucault's story ends so badly with
telquel and those bastards who decided to continue from his line (re:
potential 3) but going the way of capitalism in the 80s with fashion
magazines and tabloid news, the information was vital and so it was
used very unethically.

i dont know. seems like he said enough, why weren't other
intellectuals engaged by this responsibly? Maybe they were lost
persuing some stupid virtual paradoxes that intellectuals like to busy
themselves with. If we are looking at one man for a formula we are
already filled with mistaken ideas.

this is interesting how you have described an intellectual's brain
like a computer machine. I don't know what to make of this yet and I
will consider the brain as bWo or the brain as machine or as
assembleges... i dunno, its weierd.
