Ive been hearing alot about ‘endings’, of history and philosophy, darkness.
Why is technology ‘dark’? Why is the ‘techno-capitalist’ dark? Is global survalence (sp, lol) ‘dark’? AI that exceeds human consciousness? Selling our information ?
Alot of people it seems talk about all this ‘dark’ stuff, but never told us why its dark.
I mean, i recall the band Ministry and Nine Inch Nails was dark for a second; then they just became another money making hip soundtrack for movies. Insane Clown Possie, while indeed disturbing and dark, is now taken in stride as entertainment, so ICP is less dark than it was.
So why? I see Nick Land as refering to his Dark Enlightenment as merely a creative use of Enlightenment. But Maybe someone could talk about the reason why ‘dark’ is dark.
Perhaps it is not the world thats showing us the end, but a particular manner, a particular ordering of thought to activity, that is ‘showing’ ends. Maybe its just transition ?
Maybe what it false is ending, and what is true is beginning?
Perhaps we begin with truth, and end with religion.
Dont know. Someone got sny suggestions???
