Dragostea rurală pentru tehnologie

“It is a hypercomplex system, reducible only with diffi culty to known models that we have now mastered. What can we presently say about this system ? First, that it is an information and thermodynamic system. Indeed, it receives, stores, exchanges, and gives off both energy and information-in all forms, from the light of the sun to the flow of matter which passes through it (food, oxygen, heat, signals). This system is not in equilibrium, since thermodynamic stability spells death for it, purely and simply. It is in a temporary state of imbalance, and it tends as much as possible to maintain this imbalance. It is hence subject to the irreversible time of the second law, since it is dying. But it struggles against this time. We can improve upon the classical formulation of this problem. Indeed, due to the energy and information torrent which passes through the system without interruption, it is henceforth impossible to conceive of it as an isolated-closed system, except, perhaps, in its geno typical form. It is an open system. It should thus be regulated by a thermodynamics, of open systems which has been developing over the past ten years and which provides a complex theory for this state of imbalance. In and by this imbalance, it is relatively stable. But here invariance is unique: neither static nor homeostatic, it is homeorrhetic. It is a river that flows and yet remains stable in the continual collapse of its banks and the irreversible erosion of the mountains around it. One always swims in the same river, one never sits down on the same bank. The fluvial basin is stable in its flux and the passage of its chreodes ; as a system open to evaporation, rain, and clouds, it always-but stochasti cally-brings back the same water. What is slowly destroyed is the solid basin. The fluid is stable ; the solid which wears away is unstable - Hera clitus and Parmenides were both right. Hence the notion of home orrhesis. The living system is homeorrhetic. This river, almost stable although irreversible, this basin, poised on its own imbalance in a precarious state of quasi-equilibrium in its flow toward death, ferries energy and information, knowledge of entropy and negentropy, of order and disorder. Both a syrrhesis (rather than a system) and a diarrhesis, the organism is hence defined from a global perspective.” 

“Slavery and freedom are symptoms of wealth and poverty, themselves symptoms of better-connected material things. History is a symptom of nature. Time is the symptom of symp toms.”, “This morning my soul is tumultuous, con vulsive, and tempestuous, but from its birth and in its very being, it is only a troublemaker, a product of a storm in the atomic cloud, of an oblique lightning bolt. It is ataraxia, just like my body, and like things themselves. I know it; the laws of physics tell me so. And I make my revolution. The physics of the vortex is revolutionary. It goes back to the first disturbance, toward the original clinamen. And from there to the streaming, to the constancies of movements, to general invariabilities, whatever the random variations, to the primordial paths of matter itself, pricked here and there, marked with convulsions. Thus, ataraxia is a physical state, the fundamental state of matter; on this base, worlds are formed, disturbed by circumstances. Morality is physics. Wisdom com pletes its revolution, going back up the helix toward this first state of things; ataraxia is the absence of vortices. The soul of the wise man is extended to the global universe. The wise man is the universe. He is, when pacified, the pact itself.”  

"Afirmarea, nu nostalgia, este calea de urmat: nu idealizarea metadiscursului filosofic, ci misiunea mult mai pragmatică de autotransformare prin experimentare smerită. "

"Ce se întâmplă când conștiința este incapabilă de a găsi un remediu pentru boala sa obscură, această viață, această zoe, o forță impersonală care ne mișcă fără a ne cere permisiunea să facă asta? Zoe este o forță inumană care se întinde dincolo de viață, spre noi forme vitaliste de abordare a morții ca eveniment impersonal. "

"“fără concesii, nici față de panica morală, nici față de melancolie” 

"Dacă vreți să vorbim despre rău nu există decât unul singur. Violența. Toată problema răului poate fi rezolvată rezolvând problema violenței. (…) Stiți, suntem animaul cel mai violent. Singurul, în afara șobolanului, care își omoară seamănul. [...] Viața este mai degrabă un dezechilibru evitat decât un echilibru în raport cu mediul. Noțiunea de echilibru este aproape peste tot abandonată de științele despre viață. De altfel, unul dintre ultimii laureați ai premiului Nobel a obținut acest premiu pentru că a inventat o termodinamică în afara echilibrului. "
