This thread is its own board called /0/ where we talk about nihilistic shit like the non-existence of everything, the meaningless futility of said non-existence, and how we'll eventually kill ourselves.

Also how we're gonna have a couple of yukks in the meantime.

Ok allow "me" to say, as an opener, that the subject/object dialectic is an arbitrary simulacra like all dialectics/binaries, so "I'm" not an "I", so this isn't a play "viewpoints" or "world-views" or "beliefs" or their negation, all of that shit is far too onto-theological and hence plays into metaphysics (of presence) [this goes for Zen Buddhism's ontologies as well]

>check this shit out as a further opening to these positions https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Deconstruction

We could continue, alongside this trolling, on how the distinction between existence/non-existence is "illusory" and can't be articulated as a referent of any kind let alone a mathematical figure/metaphor/ontology/referent like "between zero" much like the metaphysical demarcation between possible/impossible. So this remains not merely a play of an -ism such as nihilism, but the play of nihility as playing out the chain(s) of deconstructive signifiers (emptied of referents/referentiality)...

There is no point (which implies a teleology) to anything, especially philosophy, but the play of deconstruction visa vi the play of the hyperreal and the postmodern as well as 'Pataphysics and Neoism (as plays of nihility) aren't philosophy (which remains a metaphysical outing always) rather they transverse philosophy (deconstruction inhabits the structures that are deconstructed) but aren't restricted to "it". By operating deconstructively "operators" further play out this game of disappearance/dissemination to further these simulacrums deconstruction opening up and embellishing all structures as merely the mise en abyme of feedback loops that all structures remain. As a zero-sum game there remains no winning, no losing, and no point.

Eh Zizek is ok i don't entirely have the patience for him, i've read one or two of his texts (still putting off reading Welcome to the Desert of the Real) its basically an attempt at reifying the postmodern and hyperreal into a pop post-Marxist dialectical metaphysics, but in an even more annoying way than Kroker (who's also kinda tedious).

Zizek is sometimes considered the "Elvis" of postmodernism whatever that means. Reading Zizek is only strategic to deploy at deconstructing this attempt of the post-Marxo-Freudian community to reappropriate deconstruction/deconstructive facets into a critical metaphysics.

Ok nigga lets play, I'll humor you and engage further I'm bored enough... What (under your "subjective" or a supposed "objective" definition(s)) are the following?

>exist(tence) [p.s. need help? Go read Parmenides, Plato, Aristotle, Descartes, Kant, Hegel, Nietzsche, Husserl or Heidegger maybe? Or perhaps Russell, Davidson, Chomsky, Popper, Putnam, Dawkins or Searle?] [Those are a selection of writers from the history of the western metaphysics of presence, i.e, the ways in which Being or beings have attempted to prove, verify and legitimize the existence of Existence or as the term Dasein metonymically embellishes the "being-there of Being", aka the "presence" (existence) verses absence (non-existence) of the capacity for Existence and its dialectic structure that is merely the tautology of logic as Logos (aka circular logic) thereby embellishing the simulation of the "illusion" of existence} {P.s. read Derrida mafffaka]


{Might wanna go read some Freud, Roland Barthes, some J.L. Austin, or some Wittgenstein, to prepare you for the problematic of "language games", semiotics and their performativity; the way in which the play if communication/language/systems operates off of arbitrary game-like structured rules for their legitimation of "master narratives" like Truth, Justice, Existence, Being, etc.and the incommensurability of said games-structures (Lyotard); the relationships/structures of words/symbols (signifiers) their meanings (signifieds) and what they refer to objectively (referents) and their arbitration of the distinction between their exchange/use value (Marx) of said referents and how they too are "illusory" (Baudrillard) through the expansion/blurring lines of said demarcation into the simulation of their existence/performative capacity again Derrida)

I could go on and on, on the futility of the vocabulary/paradigm as criticism of deconstruction, which by the way deconstructs the capacity of a revisionary paradigm (critical or otherwise) or any paradigm whatsoever. I didn't come on here to "act smart" or wave my dick around but rather to have a fun casual conversation on the nihilistic futility/meaninglessness/non-existence of anything and everything anyone can think of. But if you wanna press me i can further undermine you or anyone else and trace all of the clear inadequacies, aporia and uninformed aspects of yours or anyone else's metaphysical paradigm or ideology around these or any "other" issue(s) (that was a deconstructive joke btw, so riddle me that bitch) in the meantime go fuck yourself. If you're a mod then same goes, with the addition that i like this site and I have been coming here since '09 at least and i don't see how you're effected enough to attempt to marginalize me on a pointless thread of no consequence and sheer bemusement.

>doing nothing (here lies the problematics of the metaphysics of performance and the distinction of what is doing nothing since the distinction between nothing and something is a simulated binary.)

This interlinks to the fatal strategy I play out, I might as well iterate the pataphysical solution i've interlinked together between hyperrealist, postmodern and deconstructive texts. For instance Baudrillard in one text plays the play of differance/nothing as secret into further secrecy and obscurity thereby making the incomprehensible even more incomprehensible, the play of deconstruction as always deconstructions (this comes together in various Derrida texts) and deconstructively drifting between the aporiatic gaps between incommensurable phrase regimes/language games in postmodern texts such as Lyotard's Driftworks, Just Gaming and The Differend. Interlinked to this fine text of Baudrillard's Pataphysics (2007).

"He proves the impossible of thinking pataphysically without killing yourself. He is, if you will, the ray of an unknown spherical gidouille whose only limits are the imbecility of the sphere, but who becomes infinite like humor once it explodes. From this explosion of the Palotins comes humor, from their naive and fawning manner to return to nature under the form of farts, which believe themselves to be quite conscientious beings, and not just gas, and they give the spark to an incommensurable humor that will shine until the end of the world -- the explosion of Ubu himself. Thus pataphysics is impossible. Must one kill oneself to prove it? Indeed, since it is not serious. But it is exactly this which is its seriousness. Finally, to exalt Pataphysics is to be a pataphysician without knowing it, which is what we are all. Because humor wants humor in regards to humor, etc. Pataphysics is science... On the contrary, Pataphysics is ex-sangue and doesn't get itself wet, evolving in a universe of parody, being the reabsorption itself of the spirit, without a trace of blood. And, moreover, all Pataphysical procedures are a vicious circle where, maddening forms, without believing in each other, devour each other like crabs at the edge of a cliff, digesting themselves like stucco buddhas and renders nothing in all its cris-crossing but the fecal sound of a pumice rock and dried ennui.

This is because Pataphysics has reached such a perfection of the game and because it accords little importance to everything that it finally has little of. In themselves, all solennal nullity, all figures of nullites come to fail and petrify themselves before the gorgonal eye of Ubu. In it all things become artificial, venomous, and lead to schizophrenia, by the angels of pink stucco whose limbs rejoin in a curbed mirror. Loyola -- may the world be avarice, provided that I reign over it. If a soul doesn't resist the emprise of volute, of spirals of imprinted vertigo, fixed at the moment of paroxystical tartufferie, when it is delivered to the sumptuous Ubu, whose smile renders everything to its sulfurous inutility and the freshness of latrines...

Such is the unique imaginary solution to the absence of problems."

Tldr; I play out the further deconstruction of everything, making it all even more incomprehensible, in the meantime i do basically nothing akin to Bartleby the Scrivner drifting along meaninglessly trolling, and then at some arbitrary point I'll "kill myself". Even though the distinction between life and death doesn't exist, we're already dead in slow motion so its more so attempting to perform a hyperrealist disappearing act like 9/11-esq suicidal terrorism on the Code (aka the illusory rules of metaphysics, etc.)

Basically who gives a fuck, fuck you all, and "thats" "how" "you" "do" (hyper-)nothing (sans -thing).
