Author Item Summary Meta data
Blask I 11
Seduction/Baudrillard: the term seduction later becomes meaningful to Baudrillard. Contrary to simulation, seduction is pure pretense and not a world of signs.
Blask I 11
Fatality/Baudrillard: the fatal strategies include seduction, restoration and ecstasy. Everything is happening anyway.
Blask I 26
Simulacra = are artificial worlds of signs.
Blask I 34
Implosion/Baudrillard: the disappearance of the poles of cause and effect, of subject and object. Individual and class have no meaning anymore. Masses are only a statistical phenomenon. Implosion of the sense. Start of simulation.
Blask I 46
The symbolic exchange resolves the contrast between real and imaginary. Arbitrary interchangeability of the characters.
Blask I 47
Crisis: crisis is not a threat, but an attempt to renew confidence. Generated itself by the system.
Blask I 47
Symbolic exchange: (following Marcel Mauss): symbolic exchange is a gift without return and beyond the Equivalence Principle. No value law. One inevitably gets something back, but no value system dictates the appropriateness.
Baudrillard: the system is to be challenged by a gift to which it cannot answer except through its own death and collapse.
Blask I 55
Alfred Jarry: "Pataphysics". In accordance with this, characterized and really his own work.
Blask I 57
Seduction: seduction is the bearer of reversibility. "Seduction is a pure pretense and not a sign world." It renounces the principle of representation and already establishes "the other" as opposed to the identical.
Against any kind of causality and determination. The law gives way to the rule of the game, the simulation of the illusion, the communication of irony.
Seduction is more false than the false, for it uses signs that are already pseudo-forms to remove the meaning of the sign.
Blask I 58
Seduction: the starting point is the opposite: truth, results from a convulsive urge for revelation. Pornography, an example of the escalation of truth: more true than the truth. No secret. Even love stands after confession-like truth and ultimately obscenity.
Blask I 59
Seduction: seduction has no truth, no place, no sense. The seducer himself does not know the enigma of seduction.
Woman: just pretense, she has a strategy of pretense.
Seduction: the strength of the seducer is not to desire. Reversibility as a counterforce to the causality principle.
Blask I 60
Seduction: seduction does not produce a law, but is based on rules of the game to which one can voluntarily engage.
Love: love is individual, one-sided and selfish.
Seduction: seduction is two-sided and antagonistic, according to rules which have no claim to truth. Sexuality and love are rather resolutions of seduction. Seduction appreciates distance and is an infinite rescue of an exchange. The female is not the opposite of the male but his seducer. Seduction replaces dialectic.
Blask I 62
The Evil: the evil is not the opposite, but the deceiver of the good.
Blask I 67
Fatality/Baudrillard: Ecstasy - irony (overcomes morality and aesthetics) - superiority of the object Principle of evil - at the same time subversion.
Blask I 68
Ecstasy/Baudrillard: ecstasy lives in all things of the present. Passion for doubling and increasing. Adopts the dialectic, resolves its opposites. "Either or" no longer exists. E.g. Cancer Cells: growth acceleration, disorder and aimlessness.
Blask I 69/70
Ecstasy: ecstasy is simultaneously slowdown, laziness. End before the end and surviving at a standstill. What, dissolution and disaster. The return point has long since been crossed, the catastrophe is without consequences and thus inevitable as the purest form of the event. Small breaks replace the downfall.
Blask I 70
Indifference/Baudrillard: according to Baudrillard dreams, utopias and ideas have been played out, they have already been redeemed in reality. Everything has already taken place. The avant-garde has become as meaningless as the revolution. This is the transpolitical.
Blask I 78
The Other: is the last way out of the "Hell of the Same." (VsSartre).
Blask I 93
Asceticism/Baudrillard: The abundant society tends rather to asceticism because it wants to save what it has achieved.
Blask I 95/96
Mythic poles: myth of banality and myth of the desert. "Anything you cross with insane speed is a desert."
Blask I 102
Principle of the evil: the whole universe contradicts the principles of dialectics. In their stead, the principle of evil rules: "the malice of the object."
Evil: Good and evil are not to be separated, nor distinguished as effects or intentions. Mental subversion by confusion, perversion of things, fundamental inclination to heresy. The principle of evil is the finished counterforce to logic, causality, and signification. "Say," God is evil, "is a tender truth, friendship for death, glide into space, into absence."
Blask I 104
Scene: the basis of every illusion, challenge of the real, the opponents of the obscene.
Blask I 105
Obscene: "The total obscenity of the money game."
Blask I 108
Ceremony of the world: everything is always predetermined. Need for a return.
Blask I 110
Virtual catastrophes: Schadenfreude of the machines. Delusion of prophylaxis. The last virus: the virus of sadness.
