I couldn't stop
the wind from blowing...
and the air from being
as clear as crystal...
and I couldn't hide the mountain.

How can humans en- trust their acquired information to inanimate objects like paper or stone? It is well known that these objects are subject to the second law of thermodynamics, according to which they must decompose and be forgotten. In his abyss, where everything is mired in sedimentation and where everything is submerged in fluid, the impermanence and unreliability of all inanimate materials in fact become more apparent than on the relatively dead surface of the continents, where bleached bones can lie around for centuries. And yet, the laughable error that has led to human art may not only be laughed at insofar as Vampyroteuthis is capable of laughing but also deserves to be properly considered.

Locality says that particles interact at points in space-time. But suppose you want to inspect space-time very closely. Probing smaller and smaller distance scales requires ever higher energies, but at a certain scale, called the Planck length, the picture gets blurry: So much energy must be concentrated into such a small region that the energy collapses the region into a black hole, making it impossible to inspect. “There’s no way of measuring space and time separations once they are smaller than the Planck length,”

New kainos denotes "new," of that which is unaccustomed or unused, not "new" in time, recent, but "new" as to form or quality, of different nature from what is contrasted as old.


These chthonic powers, forces, and entities are coupled with the suffix –cene, drawn from kainos, or the thick now, the present, which is not instantaneous but extends into many kinds of time, into presence. Into cultivating response-ability." Donna Haraway
