On love: Nick Land and/is Reza Negarestani

Nick Land on love (quote from The thirst for annihilation):

That the root of love is a thirst for disaster is exhibited throughout its erratic course. At its most elementary love is driven by a longing to be cruelly unrequited; fostering every kind of repellent self-abasement, awkwardness, and idiocy. /…/
One wastes away; expending health and finance in orgies of narcosis, breaking down one’s labour-power to the point of destitution, pouring one’s every thought into an abyss of consuming indifference. At the end of such a trajectory lies the final breakage of health, ruinous poverty, madness, and suicide.

Reza Negarestani on love (quote from Cyclonopedia):

Love empties all possibilities of recovery. Falling in love is a one way ticket to the end of health. Barthes suggests that love is cyclic. /…/ This cycle strikes me not as love but flirtation, flirtation with survival. /…/ But love’s sole enthusiasm lies in consuming every possibility of falling in love again. /…/ The Love-Recovery cycle that Barthes maps in his works is of course Proustian but deeply resembles the ever refining self-fertilizing cycle of Aristotle (nothing must be wasted as it is needed in the next phase of the cycle, the next love, the next recovery from the last love). /…/ Love is only thinkable as one and only one tyrannical possibility: falling in love once and for all.

Cyclonopedia (1/3)

An entangled mess of vortical and corkscrewing motions, the structure of the middle-eastern political formations is a cyclone armed with a drilling and extracting instrumentality; it is a cyclone and an oil drill used for extracting unheard-of political and power formations.

It is through survival (the incapacity of the solid to reject the void) that solid participates in ungrounding itself /…/
The solid surrenders itself to the plague from the very moment that it begins to cure itself. For solidity, the ‘Will to Cure’ is the ‘Will to Mess’. /…/ Every action of solidity in the direction of becoming more solid is equal to augmenting its interactions with the void. /…/
Although the void devours the solid, the solid feasts on the void, i.e. its outsider. In compositions, the solid becomes hysterically gluttonous for the void. /…/
Holey space is nothing but a composition (of solid and void) /…/ In any composition, the solid narrates the anomalies generated by the void, /…/ Once we realize that /…/ the solid is the possessed narrator of the void, it will be but a short analytical step to see that the solid works as two differet entities overlapping with each other and functioning concurrently.

It is Lovecraftian worm-ridden space that makes solidity the altruistic host of emergence.

Nemat-space is an ultimate crawling machine: it is essentially cryptogenic and interconnectig with anonymous-until-Now.

Scorpions are burrowers, not architects.

The polytics of the ()holey complex defies existing models of the harvesting of power correlated to the logic of the ground and the politics of whole. For the world order, inconsistent events around the world are failures or setbacks for the dominant political models. According to the politics of the poromechanical earth, however, inconsistences and regional disparities across the globe constitute the body of polytics.

In terms of emergence, consistency or connectivity should not be measured by the ground or the body of solid as a whole but according to a degenerate model of wholeness and a poromechanics of the event.

The myths of obtuse flatness (i.e. superficiality) or totalitarianism attributed to Freudian psychoanalysis by postmodernist rivals are in most cases the symptoms of misunderstanding the problem of surface and emergence.

And in ()hole complex, depth exists as the ambiguity or the gradient between inner and outer, vigor and silence, inclusion and exclusion.

According to the archeological law of contemporary military doctrines and Freudian psychoanalysis, for every inconsistency or anomaly on the ground, there is a buried schizoid consistency: to reach the schizoid consistency, a paraoid consistency or a plane of paranoia must first be traversed.

The distribution of porosity through the Earth does not follow a rhizomatic structure but goes by way of random clusters with variable densities, similar to the dispersion of suspended dust and moisture in fog.

The problem of oil fields and the ()hole complex between the State and desert-nomads is indeed far more sophisticated than that of mines and their ambulant dwellers (miners).

Hidden Writing can be described as utilizing every plot hole, all problematics, every suspicious obscurity or repulsive wrongness as a new plot with a tentacled and autonomous mobility. /…/ The central or main plot is reinvented solely in order that it may stealthily host, transport and nurture other plots. /…/ Every hole is a footprint left by at least one more plot prowling underneath.

If memory holes cause such accessibility problems for the subject, it is because they have been specifically designed for being accessed from the other side. /…/
channels for trafficking data and retrieval from the other side.

Jihad’s defense and Crusade’s offensive invasions become as synergetic as they are assymetrical. As the western machines are depleted of oil in this heated participation, they wush for thicker layers of the blob which trasort more enthusiastic Islamic war machines with weirder sentience.

When it comes to seeing through the pipeline, machines of enlightenment are particulary petro-mongoloid.

In short, oil trade in the Islamic network of petropolitics is primarily used to recharge and benefit neither the wealth of countries nor the production spheres, but the pipeline itself.
