Matamodernism - being adamantly against being for something

-FJ said...

...that would be post-modernism. The argument "for" metamodernism appears to be a "new synthesis" with modernism and post-modernism.... the goals of "modernism" but for a broader diversity of beneficiaries.

-FJ said...

..against the "identitarian" critique of modernism.

-FJ said...

...and our "nostalgia" in film and consumer products (ala Travis Scott burger at McDonald's).

-FJ said...

Our problem is that the capital's "disciplinary matrix" hasn't changed yet... and so no radically changed "future" is possible. We're trapped in a "cycle" of Enlightenment modernities. Toffler's "Power Shift" hasn't kicked in yet.

...and so we're trapped in a "cycle" of 2nd Waves.

-FJ said...

...and hopefully it will be this and not this.

...but continue to wear your face masks, irregardless. ;)

Futurists should shy away from "predicting" anything but self-fulfilling prophesies. ;)

Nihilists shouldn't complain about the visions of futurists.

The best nihilists ARE futurists ;)

Lygos bygosh!

(((Thought Criminal))) said...

Hmmm. Was Lygos fiercely debating if angels have genitalia when they fell?

Joe Conservative said...

Lygos was the town's name before Byzantium.

That is so really creepy!

Was Lygos Greek or Celtic?

Layla Elizabeth said...

I believe Celtic.

from Wiki's "History of Istanbul"
Neolithic artifacts, uncovered by archeologists at the beginning of the 21st century, indicate that Istanbul's historic peninsula was settled as far back as the 6th millennium BCE.[1] That early settlement, important in the spread of the Neolithic Revolution from the Near East to Europe, lasted for almost a millennium before being inundated by rising water levels.[2][3][4] The first human settlement on the Asian side, the Fikirtepe mound, is from the Copper Age period, with artifacts dating from 5500 to 3500 BCE.[5] It's also worth noting that in the European side, near the point of the peninsula (Sarayburnu) there was a settlement during the early 1st millennium BCE. Modern authors have linked it to the possible Thracian toponym Lygos,[6] mentioned by Pliny the Elder as an earlier name for the site of Byzantium.
