Chaosmosis Engine

Financial Black Hole and the Vanishing World

When crisis seems more crisis
than economics the collapse

of dangers is replaced
in the machine by awakening

hidden nights of rage in English
suburbs. Algorithmic spells

of cognitive labor, intellect
dispossessed of the erotic.

Automatism of the human
swarm . The happy ending

is hypercomplex interfaces
trapped in inescapable

patterns. Invasion of the possible.
Financial obligation is a swarm.

Your rebellion is irrelevant,
is a swarm provoked by debt

of the symbolic family. Privatization
of dependence means more

information means less meaning.
The escape of the word

into financial formats.




A sphere of hyperinclusion.
*******The magic
of value without muscular
work dissolving products
**************into motors.
Voice reactivation.

Abandonment of the emotional.
The desiring force reduced
*******to protocols.
The voice is reemergence
**************of recombinability.

*******Sensuousness exploding.
An infinite slippage of sensuousness.
The monstruous singularity
cannot be compassionate,

*******open to becoming
other. A desert enunciation.
Poison of daily life. The oil

of eviction. Perturbation in response
to perturbation. Autonomy:

**************the ability to escape.


Future Exhaustion and Happy Frugality

Chaosmosis is the network,******* polysemy of mimickry.

Scriptural machines and their avatars exchange voice

for submission.********************* An umbilical of extrinsic

coordinates at the junction of ambiguity and standardization.

Enunciation is the rhizome. *******The disaster of subjectivity.

The subjectivity of disaster******* An acceleration of loneliness.

Extinction is finite.******* Desire, infinite.******* The sensitive

organism is the threshold.******* We cannot think. We cannot

say.******* What we cannot say is the world.******* The world

resides in language.******* Digital finance is a closed reality.

A new barbarism.******* The violence of finitude.

The ironic act traversing the logic of excess.******* The game

to create,******* to play,********************* to shuffle, a mechanism

to disentangle age and act************** from the limits of debt.
