Trance-script fed back to the cyber-subject becomes like Tom Phillips’s A Humument: heavily redacted. Synchronicities appear each day pointing ambiguously toward both hope and fear — reality a kind of “waking-dream” therapy. Selection of hopeful passages rather than fearful ones: that’s the task each round, each turn-based move, made easier when we remember that the latter are sweet nuthins. Lou sings it and the subject listens.

writes Phillips across his book’s frontispiece. Parquet Courts sings of being “in the chaos dimension / Trapped in a brutal invention.” We don’t want that, do we? So imagine it differently.

  1. Neuroplasticity. I know my potential for change, but the grooves are dug deep by past habits. It’s funny how the solution is simultaneously simple and impossible – we go where we allow our thoughts to take us.

    1. Yes, that’s a great way of putting it. The grooves lead more often than not to fearful misapprehensions of whatever’s going on in the moment — but there’s always that potential to breathe and push through the fear so as to allow a different response.
