The Witness to Disaster

..witness to transparency, gradual erosion of ground, distance, self, even: the body.
information is banal meaning, noise is excessive, pure information.

the erosion of body, a world "too close", of geography, does not result in a global village (don't think of endless festivals, only a festival of banality) but a global resurfacing, a flat, asphalt sphere weaved throughout by the nerves and spine of beings.

the body, the self, the being, reduced to noise.

by accelerating these conditions, by becoming transparent, the cyclotron of information could itself be forced into mechanical failure and collapse.

this is a recommendation.

otherwise, hold on: the cyclotron, the very temple of information, is allready overworking itself..

it's only a matter of time.
