Kyklos/Kairos

I. A hidden consequence of this intense focus on axiology as a prime sequentiating thread is that what theory exposition teases at is a world that is “whyness all the way down”. It leaves nothing to explain except systemic settings and proximal reasons. But note “whyness” and not “meaningness” as

The sound of music

I. General axiology is not a get-rich-quick scheme. But it implies one. That I allude at increasing frequency to its (generically!) infinite possibilities plays a structural role not in theory but in the development of theory. The secret of theory is not that truth can’t be told (this is common wisdom to

The Wave

Let’s try again from the top. 1. Theory is the theory of generic structure (i.e. the theory of the theory of the theory of the … of the theory of generic structure) 2.1. A left (half) axiology is an intensional theory of what’s valuable. Left axiologies can define values but

The unbearable lightness of Prince Kropotkin in Hi-Z

I The recursive definition of “theory”: theory is the theory of generic structure. Just leaving this here. II A veritable constitutional crisis that has been brewing in Brazil for a while is currently reaching a boiling point. ‘Tis probably none of the things you are thinking about if you aren’t extremely

A gentle introduction to Asemic Horizon

What is meant by “asemic horizon”? bits and pieces of theory (recursive definition: theory is the theory of generic structure); streams threatening to coalesce into rivulets; an asymptote (a horizon); as theory approaches it, the entire world becomes pure gestures. Pure gestures can be understood; in the real situation which is
