What are dreams made out of?

Complacent Nihilism

At last–-through centuries of changes and centuries of ideas about the changes-–one glimpses a dénouement on the horizon. With his early development of what Regis Debray has called “mediology,” Cornelius Castoriadis gives Susz the springboard he needs. Although Castoriadis´ declarations on the fissure between technological development and its lack of morality rings of a cost/benefit analysis that neutralizes censure, his insights into the effects of television–made remarkably early, in the 1970´s–is extraordinary: TV´s ability to perpetuate authority via imagery; its use to close off modern society from outside influences; loss of the collective/embodied agora in favor of a screen and the subsequent privatization of the individual; infantilizing of the viewer; wiping out of cultural memory; the mixing of fact with triviality until all becomes insignificant; perpetration of what Octavio Paz has called “Complacent Nihilism”.

Evolution

The evolution of man is the evolution of his consciousness. And ‘consciousness’ can not evolve unconsciously. The evolution of man is the evolution of his will, and ‘will’ can not evolve involuntarily.  The evolution of man is the evolution of his power of doing, and ‘doing’ can not be result of things which ‘happen’.
