Not sure if [rcarty] knows that this is what he's talking about. It may have been invented because he worried about it. [lurch, Nov 21 2013]
||Work getting to you again ? Might be time for a vacation. Oh, and surely you can find a better category than [other: general]. As they used to tell me in the photo darkroom, "Finish your prints" !
||This is about the scifi universe where doors open
automatically for you based on some sort of sociometric
calculation, but remain closed if you are observed to be
acting on your own impulses.
||Are you sure it's not about cruising social media at 3 am
and experiencing the unsettling sensation that you're
chasing your own electronic tail?
||Sociometrics is the most important evaluative procedure
in the entire university, and it's not necessarily science
but may have sufficient "scientific" verifiers.
||Sociometrics is the most important 'science' there is, it's
also inherently positivist, because it dirrectly influences
the subject through interrelation.
||You do sociometrics when evaluating others and the
groups they belong to based on values and principles you
hold, habits etc.
||To explain the joke, reification in this sense is to make an
idea real, solid, concrete. The paranoia is of a system of
persecution, the concreta is the machine and operators. I
like to close my eyes an imagine the social as a huge
machine operated by doors.
||The 'bakery does tend to attract word salad. I try to stick to stir-fries myself.
||So what if it's word salad, are you an expert on what a
thought looks like? You're performing sociometrics
based on that pamphlet and looking at something in a
medicalized way which turns you into a procedure
following robot. Schizophrenia doesn't have to be
looked at in a medicalized way, that perspective does
not help people, it just results in a social formation
where you have the pretense of understanding what the
schizophrenic means, in a medicalized sense, but you're
not really in touch with reality yourslef you're just
participating in a system of social controls. Well, nazi
pamphleteers won some ground on you herd with their
DSM signology, but you don't have to use medicl
procedures and terms with a schizophrenic, unless you
want to follw a close series of procedures like a robot.
Everyone knew what a schizophrenic was before the
DSM, it's just a nazi institution of objectively identifying
a "social deviant" and putting the human cog and gears
in motion based on some legal-medico objective
rationality. So are you going to be a nazi functionary and
put on some label like word salad on something, or are
you going to acknowledge you're not completely tuned
in like a perfect radio to reality, and history and nazis.
||'68 in France was likely around the time in terms of
demography that the generation from rapist nazis and the
indigenous french clashed at an institutional level.
||What was the reresistance then? Canada loves their
French. Maybe take some more tours of duty in occupied
||~68-50=free will revolution, post war existentialism
||At least with [beanie's] postings, I could tell that he
was usually talking about some kind of biochemical
||You're the grand narrator that contextualizes anythiing but
I control the subtext of my own work.
||The author is dead when someone master narrates the
meaning without consideration to the important subtext.
