But congratulations in any case. I suppose if it's a boy you'll call him Luka

Yes, I agree with that. It is a question of psychic liberation, the crux being: liberation of what? Unbinding of what energies, and into whose hands?
This is the conversation we're having. Tea has had enough congratulations now. I'm drawing a line.

Still exercised at odd times in memoriam
M. F. whom I have now the sense of having
barely known. The Goldsmiths slogan-mural
could have been any mid-league social theorist
of past three decades. Better by far the stuff
that made them wince, even when opprobrious,
vampire-weakened.

No common rhizome routes ergot through to argot,
syndicate signalling to fruiting brain-rot.
Goldsmiths is rival turf, its ecosystem
ill-disposed towards us. Might be guilty
projection, panic flashes around New Cross.
By acid he meant psyche-manifesting
not lysergic.

Has anyone ever seen it? I mean the psyche -
topos of affect, global image depot.
On acid I saw blood gurgling from sewers,
a floating skull, that sort of thing; then tie-dye
coloured Mandelbrotian swirls, an anodyne
enough default. I can get weirder on
two hours' sleep-debt.

But he wrote to get seriously defaced,
make legible the ungovernable within
our fixed stars' governance, their frozen whim
our flexible command. Goldsmiths abides
his punked-out sangfroid, seething like a state.
The psyche keeps schtum, having with the cosmos
zero contract.

Weeeelllll, that's a whole other conversation. I've been wanting to start a Mark thread for some time now but keep chickening out. He does mean something and the legacy is worth picking over.... And fighting over.

I know what I like and what I value and what I trust... And I know what I think is toxic.

I find "acid communism" such an enormously surprising phrase coming from him. And knowing him he really didn't mean LSD. But that turn towards "consciousness raising" is startling, so totally at odds with the cold-rationalist hippie-hating he was so entrenched in.

He hadn't when I knew him. He was basically anti drugs. He didn't approve. It's one of the reasons we fell out.

Some people are just oriented that way though they. They just don't want any kind of intoxication or potential loss of control. He was fiercely attached to the conscious ego and the 'rational' mind.

Yeah I mean, if people don't want to take drugs they might very well know something you don't about their own personal psychology etc. So don't push people into taking em in other words!

Strange sort of wounded attachment to the ego, which half the time he wanted to dissolve into anonymous cybernetic feedback loops, and the other half he wanted to stage as a magnificent glam beast - both ways of getting "seriously defaced", but neither involving any softening of edges, any fuzzing of possible selves.

His theory of himself had little room in it for the sort of kindness and patience that actually characterised him when he wasn't in one of his regal moods - "shorn of pseudonym", as I put it.
