  • The open heart of General Axiology

    (This text has had its two sections swapped at the last moment. It’s possible that it’ll make no sense at first and you have to read it again. Welcome to asemic horizon!) 1. The open heart This is not an essay about theory. Anyone who might care can learn about how our Kehre came to […]

  • Physique du rôle – Enterprise edition

    I. Clarifications Bluntly put — if, however, doing some violence to the appogiaturas and rubatos that give theory the effect of fiddling with the frame — the domain of the axiological is the domain of what matters. In contrast, the domain of the epistemic is what is true. From an epistemological point of view, what […]

  • Ezra, Huaso and St. Dennis (I, II)

    I. Parenthood my well be the ultimate political marker and, in due time, the ultimate revolutionary act. If this isn’t a banal assertion — to the point that making it is wasteful — that’s because pharmaceutical birth control is rather recent in the grand scheme of things: at most two generations back from you. This […]

  • Plures disparibum

    Theory* is perhaps best conceptualized as a laboratory terrarium. The concepts of theory are really fully expressed (fully engaged in the world) not as ideas, but as mind-worms. Like in the old Tales of the Crypt scenario, they enter the subject’s brain through the ear. The ear becomes open to theory because it is already […]

  • Shifting

    Now: the story of how genetics (in its classical, nomic sense) is replaced by genomics can be seen in reverse in how astrology diverges from astronomy proper: by dodging κυβερνήτης, it becomes delinquent λόγος. Perhaps more, perhaps less controversially, this is the claim that ecology stakes for itself as an “everything science” within biology.

  • Bill of goods

    This is what asemic horizon presents itself to be in its asema chromata phase: 1. A claim and a stake on theory as an activity and a conceptual mode of world-disclosure that’s autonomous from empirics, praxis or general philosophical considerations: this is summarized in the infinite regress of theory is the theory of the theory […]

  • Yeah

    I try to do this on Telegram before and even got about 30-40 users, but the ergonomics was all wrong: it was a broadcasting channel with comments, and the app becomes really confusing when you have too many groups anyway. Ima invite people to hang out on Discord here: https://discord.gg/s9jdFygr — since I never have […]

  • Aquarela do Brasil

    Have news of Bolsonaro´s latest would-be authoritarian twitchings come to the international press yet? In my reluctant capacity as a reporter from the trenches, I have to be clear about this: that´s not an Erdogan or Duda on the rise, that´s a case of political Tourette´s. There are proximal causes in the Revolutionary Guard´s increasing […]

  • Postscript on “the scenarios of ecstasy”

    … don’t open your eyes, you won’t like what you see… I’m writing this on my phone. Texts in asemic horizon are usually barely even reread before publishing — at best to harmonize the distribution of masses, on pain of breaking the sequence of arguments at that. Worse yet: this note is moved at least […]

  • Zero chroma infinity.

    I. Alan Watts taught that money is a mere unit of measure, and that a society can no longer go meaningfully broke than it can go out of inches and grams. This undersells the usefulness of money; more importantly, it fails to account for the general issue of human material progress. Watts is no common […]
