Science & Religion Beyond Capital & Labor

The forces of science and religion, do not just have the potential to be, but have always-already been, in a constant mutual interaction since the genesis of either concept. In fact, to the extent that the present definition of the one makes absent the present definition of the other, they are known to be mutually [...]

Our First Laugh is its Last

Capital capitalizing on its own critique may appear to be an invariant feature of its operation (as a process of creatively re-self-constituting itself from the very destruction of its own constitutive ground of possibility, being itself), but the degree to which such a feature is self-conscious is the degree to which it realizes that its [...]

On Reified Cognition and Class Society

At absolute polar extremes of the radical left we have on the one hand, an anarchist primitivism which considers the erection of class society and the development of technical civilization as an unjustified contingency initially resulting in the death of freedom and the birth of domination, and on the other a communist prometheanism that considers [...]

Communism & Nirvana: Two Aspects of the Same Process

It is possible that Communism and Nirvana are different, one-sided aspects of the same process.Communism would be the realization of the middle way between market-anarchy and state-totality. Nirvana would be the realization of the middle way between hedonism and asceticism. Hedonism and market-anarchy are homologous (having the same governing structure) because they are about the [...]

Nirvāṇa/Saṃsāra; Communism/Capitalism

A general strategy that a Madhyamikan (agent of the Middle Way) may employ once they identify a pair of contradictory forces at play, is neither to affirm the possibility of resolving the contradiction through those terms, nor to abandon those terms, but to see how those terms actually compliment each other. This insistence on complementarity [...]

Beyond Ownership: notes on “Commonism”

True wealth is an expression of what “we do together” rather than what “I have myself.” For what “I have myself”, or what one has in possession, are inert things separated from the flow of life, susceptible to destruction by time or contingency, which is why this expression of wealth tends to be “stored” or [...]

Instantaneity: Moving Together

Everything moves together instantaneously. Nothing rests in passivity, only to become active upon the arrival of a necessary and sufficient external agency. To think that real activity is the expression of reactivity, which operates under a duality of cause and effect, is to privilege the way that visual perception breaks up the world into sequences [...]

Divine Persistence: Notes for a Post-Atheistic Conception of God

God does not exist. Nor has God ever existed, and nor will God ever fully come into existence. God is neither the efficient nor the final cause independent of the actual world. God can never be found and never will be found. God does not exist, but it can be said that God persists in action to [...]

Unity-In-Difference

There is no essential difference between Ultimate Reality and Conventional Existence; between Emptiness and Appearance; between Being and Becoming; between Universal and Particular; between Feminine and Masculine. While they can be thought independently, in actuality they arise interdependently, with their cooperative interplay creating this fantastical flux that we call life. It is through their union, [...]
