Level 1, or world-space, is an anthropomorphically scaled, predominantly vision-configured, hugely multi-slotted truth procedure that's obsolescing very rapidly.

Fanged Noumena assembles for the 1st time the writings of Nick Land, variously defined as 'rabid nihilism', 'mad black Deleuzianism', accelerationism , and 'cybergothic'. Wielding weaponised, machinically-recombined types of Deleuze and Guattari, Reich and Freud, within the corporation of fellow werewolves comparable to Nietzsche, Bataille, Artaud, Trakl and Cioran, to a cut-up soundtrack of Bladerunner, Terminator and Apocalypse Now, Land plotted a carefully schizophrenic break out direction out of educational philosophy, and declared all-out struggle at the Human protection approach. regardless of his disappearance , Land s output has been a very important underground impact either on fresh Speculative Realist notion, and on artists, writers, musicians and filmmakers invigorated via his uncompromising and abrasive philosophical vision.

Beginning with Land's radical rereadings of Heidegger, Nietzsche and Kant, and finishing with Professor Barker s cosmic thought of geo-trauma and neo-qabbalistic makes an attempt to formulate a numerical anti-language, Fanged Noumena rescues from obscurity papers, talks and articles a few of that have by no means formerly seemed in print. lengthy the topic of hearsay and obscure legend, Land s turbulent post-genre theory-fictions of cybercapitalist meltdown smear cyberpunk, philosophy, mathematics, poetics, cryptography, anthropology, grammatology and the occult into unrecognisable and gripping hybrids.

Fanged Noumena is a dizzying journey via Land's rigorous, incisive and provocative paintings, setting up it as an fundamental source for considerably inhuman suggestion within the twenty-first century.

His nativity seems to were that of an past Diony­ sus, the Toadstool-god; for the Greeks believed that mushrooms and toadstools have been engendered through gentle­ ning - no longer sprung from seed like any different vegetation . while the tyrants of Athens, Corinth and Sicyon criminal­ ized Dionysus worship of their towns, they constrained the orgies, it sort of feels, by means of substituting wine for toadstools; hence the parable of the Toadstool- Dionysus grew to become connected to the Vine- Dionysus, who now figured as a son of S emele the Theban and Zeus, Lord of lightning.

There is not any notion of particularity that's not theological; aligned with the illusion of a transcendent spirit that stands disjoined from the ineliminable materiality of all spiritualization methods - to scouse borrow Nietzsche's time period. That subject i s volatilized to assorted levels of spir­ itualization isn't the least bit based upon non secular causalities of any style.
