Post #74.1

What changes and  stays almost the same in the experience of abandonment and ruin as  travels through digital- space?  This socially created, mediated, transduced space deforms, re-forms, conforms, confounds, conjoins the of human and individuation and collectivity moment to moment, each arising as ephemeral wholes dependent on their parts.  Cybogologist,  Wanenchek’s most recent post raises a number of questions about  interplay  Politics, Ruin and Digital Space, investigating the of enduring ceasing digital spaces.

When we  at ruined places,  places, we’re always looking at politics, and the kinds of politics depend on a number of  variables. A place that  ruined but abandoned   very things. A place that is completely abandoned but somehow not suggests the unexpected. Time isn’t the only  that twists back on itself.

Coded spaces create a kind of invisibility to the revealing their creation entails.   in speech rather than coded create  kind of political aphasia.

Aphasia  a dismembering, a difficulty a a vocabulary that associates appropriate words and concepts with appropriate things. Aphasia  its many forms describes a difficulty retrieving both conceptual and lexical vocabularies and, most important, a difficulty comprehending what is spoken. Colonial Aphasia: Race and Disabled Histories in  Ann Laura Stoler

I agree with Sarah, there is likely a significant political content  the decay and  of But in trying  generate the “conceptual and lexical vocabularies” to investigate these phenomenon, I experience the seizing up present when my aphasia is strongest and I see the  of my partners in conversation reflect kind confusion.

So what to

Let me try this to perhaps ruin, in a way, abandonment, of  spaces in   way:

The website Random.org allows users  generate a variety of random number sequences.  I use the word “random” knowing  is a contested term.  website states its “randomness comes from atmospheric noise, which many purposes better pseudo-random number algorithms typically used in computer programs.”  This is appealing to me  because as “radio noise caused natural atmospheric processes” it is a form of weather, an important agent in the decay ruin of analog sites.

I will use this to generate a random list from 1 to  corresponding to the words and numbers in the body of this post.  Starting in a couple for  following 7 weeks, each day I will  words and numbers from this post and paste them below in the order that list.   for example, if 56 is the first in the random list, the 56th word of this post will be the first word cut and pasted below.  So eventually, this process will rearrange all the words and numbers here, into a  like a collapsed Punctuation will  retained by the closest word.  I will not preserve or destroy hyperlinks or text formatting as process.

do this over 7 weeks because that is  maximum length of time Tibetan Buddhist tradition says one can be in the bardos, the state of existence between  life and the next one.

After that, I might continue  process again, perhaps taking it up  a daily spiritual practice until I am no  able.  Or I  become bored with it and leave it as it  after the iteration,

At any my purpose  to see if this sheds any light,hear if it creates any harmonious sound, to , taste  feel anything that helps to better understand the ruin and  of digital
