Sure but remember you never added to the contract that it had to be human sized. Let's see... we can do doll house sized, 3-D puzzle, paper mache/prop quality, sand castle, or perhaps everyone's childhood favorite: the cardboard play castle held together by tape.

....And God made him die during the course of a hundred years and then He revived him
and said: "How long have you been here?" "A day, or part of a day," he replied.
- The Koran, II 261

On the night of March 14, 1939, in an apartment on the Zelternergasse in
Prague, Jaromir Hladik, author of the unfinished tragedy The Enemies, of a
Vindication of Eternity, and of an inquiry into the indirect Jewish sources of
Jakob Boehme, dreamt a long drawn out chess game. The antagonists were not
two individuals, but two illustrious families. The contest had begun many
centuries before. No one could any longer describe the forgotten prize, but it
was rumored that it was enormous and perhaps infinite. The pieces and the
chessboard were set up in a secret tower. Jaromir (in his dream) was the first-
born of one of the contending families. The hour for the next move, which
could not be postponed, struck on all the clocks. The dreamer ran across the
sands of a rainy desert - and he could not remember the chessmen or the rules
of chess. At this point he awoke. The din of the rain and the clangor of the
terrible clocks ceased. A measured unison, sundered by voices of command,
arose from the Zelternergasse. Day had dawned, and the armored vanguards of
the Third Reich were entering Prague.
On the 19th, the authorities received an accusation against Jaromir Hladik;
on the same day, at dusk, he was arrested. He was taken to a barracks, aseptic
and white, on the opposite bank of the Moldau. He was unable to refute a
single one of the charges made by the Gestapo: his maternal surname was
Jaroslavski, his blood was Jewish, his study of Boehme was Judaizing, his
signature had helped to swell the final census of those protesting the
Anschluss. In 1928, he had translated the Sepher Yezirah for the publishing
house of Hermann Barsdorf; the effusive catalogue issued by this firm had
exaggerated, for commercial reasons, the translator's renown; this catalogue
was leafed through by Julius Rothe, one of the officials in whose hands lay
Hladik's fate. The man does not exist who, outside his own specialty, is not
credulous: two or three adjectives in Gothic script sufficed to convince Julius
Rothe of Hladik's pre-eminence, and of the need for the death penalty, pour
encourager les autres. The execution was set for the 29th of March, at nine in
the morning. This delay (whose importance the reader will appreciate later) was
due to a desire on the part of the authorities to act slowly and impersonally, in
the manner of planets or vegetables.
Hladik's first reaction was simply one of horror. He was sure he would not
have been terrified by the gallows, the block, or the knife; but to die before a
firing squad was unbearable. In vain he repeated to himself that the pure and
general act of dying, not the concrete circumstances, was the dreadful fact. He
did not grow weary of imagining these circumstances: he absurdly tried to
exhaust all the variations. He infinitely anticipated the process, from the
sleepless dawn to the mysterious discharge of the rifles. Before the day set by
Julius Rothe, he died hundreds of deaths, in courtyards whose shapes and
angles defied geometry, shot down by changeable soldiers whose number
varied and who sometimes put an end to him from close up and sometimes from
far away. He faced these imaginary executions with true terror (perhaps with
true courage). Each simulacrum lasted a few seconds. Once the circle was
closed, Jaromir returned interminably to the tremulous eve of his death. Then he
would reflect that reality does not tend to coincide with forecasts about it. With
perverse logic he inferred that to foresee a circumstantial detail is to prevent its
happening. Faithful to this feeble magic, he would invent, so that they might not
happen, the most atrocious particulars. Naturally, he finished by fearing that
these particulars were prophetic. During his wretched nights he strove to hold
fast somehow to the fugitive substance of time. He knew that time was
precipitating itself toward the dawn of the 29th. He reasoned aloud: I am now in
the night of the 22nd. While this night lasts (and for six more nights to come) I
am invulnerable, immortal. His nights of sleep seemed to him deep dark pools
into which he might submerge. Sometimes he yearned impatiently for the firing
squad's definitive volley, which would redeem him, for better or for worse, from
the vain compulsion of his imagination. On the 28th, as the final sunset
reverberated across the high barred windows, he was distracted from all these
abject considerations by thought of his drama, The Enemies.
Hladik was past forty. Apart from a few friendships and many habits, the
problematic practice of literature constituted his life. Like every writer, he
measured the virtues of other writers by their performance, and asked that they
measure him by what he conjectured or planned. All of the books he had
published merely moved him to a complex repentance. His investigation of the
work of Boehme, of Ibn Ezra, and of Fludd was essentially a product of mere
application; his translation of the Sepher Yezirah was characterized by
negligence, fatigue, and conjecture. He judged his Vindication of Eternity to be
perhaps less deficient: the first volume is a history of the diverse eternities
devised by man, from the immutable Being of Parmenides to the alterable past
of Hinton; the second volume denies (with Francis Bradley) that all the events in
the universe make up a temporal series. He argues that the number of
experiences possible to man is not infinite, and that a single "repetition" suffices
to demonstrate that time is a fallacy . . . Unfortunately, the arguments that
demonstrate this fallacy are not any less fallacious. Hladik was in the habit of
running through these arguments with a certain disdainful perplexity. He had
also written a series of expressionist poems; these, to the discomfiture of the
author, were included in an anthology in 1924, and there was no anthology of
later date which did not inherit them. Hladik was anxious to redeem himself
from his equivocal and languid past with his verse drama, The Enemies. (He
favored the verse form in the theater because it prevents the spectators from
forgetting unreality, which is the necessary condition of art.)
This opus preserved the dramatic unities (time, place, and action). It
transpires in Hradcany, in the library of the Baron Roemerstadt, on one of the
last evenings of the nineteenth century. In the first scene of the first act, a
stranger pays a visit to Roemerstadt. (A clock strikes seven, the vehemence of
a setting sun glorifies the window panes, the air transmits familiar and
impassioned Hungarian music.) This visit is followed by others; Roemerstadt
does not know the people who come to importune him, but he has the
uncomfortable impression that he has seen them before: perhaps in a dream.
All the visitors fawn upon him, but it is obvious - first to the spectators of the
drama, and then to the Baron himself - that they are secret enemies, sworn to
ruin him. Roemerstadt manages to outwit, or evade, their complex intrigues. In
the course of the dialogue, mention is made of his betrothed, Julia de
Weidenau, and of a certain Jaroslav Kubin, who at one time had been her
suitor. Kubin has now lost his mind and thinks he is Roemerstadt . . . The
dangers multiply. Roemerstadt, at the end of the second act, is forced to kill
one of the conspirators. The third and final act begins. The incongruities
gradually mount up: actors who seemed to have been discarded from the play
reappear; the man who had been killed by Roemerstadt returns, for an instant.
Someone notes that the time of day has not advanced: the clock strikes seven,
the western sun reverberates in the high window panes, impassioned
Hungarian music is carried on the air. The first speaker in the play reappears
and repeats the words he had spoken in the first scene of the first act.
Roemerstadt addresses him without the least surprise. The spectator
understands that Roemerstadt is the wretched Jaroslav gubin. The drama has
never taken place: it is the circular delirium which Kubin unendingly lives and
relives.
Hladik had never asked himself whether this tragicomedy of errors was
preposterous or admirable, deliberate or casual. Such a plot, he intuited, was
the most appropriate invention to conceal his defects and to manifest his
strong points, and it embodied the possibility of redeeming (symbolically) the
fundamental meaning of his life. He had already completed the first act and a
scene or two of the third. The metrical nature of the work allowed him to go
over it continually, rectifying the hexameters, without recourse to the
manuscript. He thought of the two acts still to do, and of his coming death. In
the darkness, he addressed himself to God. If I exist at all, if I am not one of Your
repetitions and errata, I exist as the author of The Enemies. In order to bring this
drama, which may serve to justify me, to justify You, I need one more year. Grant
me that year, You to whom belong the centuries and all time. It was the last, the
most atrocious night, but ten minutes later sleep swept over him like a dark ocean
and drowned him.
Toward dawn, he dreamt he had hidden himself in one of the naves of the
Clementine Library. A librarian wearing dark glasses asked him: What are you
looking for? Hladik answered: God. The Librarian told him: God is in one of the
letters on one of the pages of one of the 400,000 volumes of the Clementine. My
fathers and the fathers of my fathers have sought after that letter. I've gone blind
looking for it. He removed his glasses, and Hladik saw that his eyes were dead. A
reader came in to return an atlas. This atlas is useless, he said, and handed it to
Hladik, who opened it at random. As if through a haze, he saw a map of India. With
a sudden rush of assurance, he touched one of the tiniest letters. An ubiquitous
voice said: The time for your work has been granted. Hladik awoke.
He remembered that the dreams of men belong to God, and that Maimonides
wrote that the words of a dream are divine, when they are all separate and clear
and are spoken by someone invisible. He dressed. Two soldiers entered his cell
and ordered him to follow them.
From behind the door, Hladik had visualized a labyrinth of passageways, stairs,
and connecting blocks. Reality was less rewarding: the party descended to an
inner courtyard by a single iron stairway. Some soldiers - uniforms unbuttoned -
were testing a motorcycle and disputing their conclusions. The sergeant looked at
his watch: it was 8:44. They must wait until nine. Hladik, more insignificant than
pitiful, sat down on a pile of firewood. He noticed that the soldiers' eyes avoided
his. To make his wait easier, the sergeant offered him a cigarette. Hladik did not
smoke. He accepted the cigarette out of politeness or humility. As he lit it, he saw
that his hands shook. The day was clouding over. The soldiers spoke in low tones,
as though he were already dead. Vainly, he strove to recall the woman of whom
Julia de Weidenau was the symbol . . . The firing squad fell in and was brought to
attention. Hladik, standing against the barracks wall, waited for the volley. Someone
expressed fear the wall would be splashed with blood. The condemned man was
ordered to step forward a few paces. Hladik recalled, absurdly, the preliminary
maneuvers of a photographer. A heavy drop of rain grazed one of Hladik's temples
and slowly rolled down his cheek. The sergeant barked the final command.
The physical universe stood still.
The rifles converged upon Hladik, but the men assigned to pull the triggers
were immobile. The sergeant's arm eternalized an inconclusive gesture. Upon a
courtyard flag stone a bee cast a stationary shadow. The wind had halted, as in a
painted picture. Hladik began a shriek, a syllable, a twist of the hand. He realized
he was paralyzed. Not a sound reached him from the stricken world.
He thought: I'm in hell, I'm dead.
He thought: I've gone mad.
He thought: Time has come to a halt.
Then he reflected that in that case, his thought, too, would have come to a
halt. He was anxious to test this possibility: he repeated (without moving his
lips) the mysterious Fourth Eclogue of Virgil. He imagined that the already
remote soldiers shared his anxiety; he longed to communicate with them. He
was astonished that he felt no fatigue, no vertigo from his protracted immobility.
After an indeterminate length of time he fell asleep. On awaking he found the
world still motionless and numb. The drop of water still clung to his cheek; the
shadow of the bee still did not shift in the courtyard; the smoke from the
cigarette he had thrown down did not blow away. Another "day" passed before
Hladik understood.
He had asked God for an entire year in which to finish his work: His
omnipotence had granted him the time. For his sake, God projected a secret
miracle: German lead would kill him, at the determined hour, but in his mind a
year would elapse between the command to fire and its execution. From
perplexity he passed to stupor, from stupor to resignation, from resignation to
sudden gratitude.
He disposed of no document but his own memory; the mastering of each
hexameter as he added it, had imposed upon him a kind of fortunate discipline
not imagined by those amateurs who forget their vague, ephemeral, paragraphs.
He did not work for posterity, nor even for God, of whose literary preferences
he possessed scant knowledge. Meticulous, unmoving, secretive, he wove his
lofty invisible labyrinth in time. He worked the third act over twice. He
eliminated some rather too-obvious symbols: the repeated striking of the hour,
the music. There were no circumstances to constrain him. He omitted,
condensed, amplified; occasionally, he chose the primitive version. He grew to
love the courtyard, the barracks; one of the faces endlessly confronting him
made him modify his conception of Roemerstadt's character. He discovered that
the hard cacaphonies which so distressed Flaubert are mere visual
superstitions: debilities and annoyances of the written word, not of the
sonorous, the sounding one . . . He brought his drama to a conclusion: he
lacked only a single epithet. He found it: the drop of water slid down his cheek.
He began a wild cry, moved his face aside. A quadruple blast brought him
down.

Jaromir Hladik died on March 29, at 9:02 in the morning.

Someone who can reciprocate the love I put in, the girl who I can make feel safe and secure unconditionally and can fill this gaping, empty void in my heart.Please, just let me find this person.

What's harmful in reading the communist manifesto?
Causes an autoimmune disease known as "Interpellation" in which the subjects hair begins to turn pink, tattoo-like lesions begin to develop all over the body, metal growths begin to sprout from the nose, eyebrow and lip areas and ultimately causes the subject to grow a phallus on top of the scalp as well as the prostate to morph into a pair of ovaries if the sufferer happens to be male. In some cases, there are negative psychological symptoms in which the subject becomes prone to actions like violence, adultery and polygamy as well as drinking craft beers.

...Naturally for the convenience and clarity of my little theoretical theatre I have had to present things in the form of a sequence, with a before and an after, and thus in the form of a temporal succession. There are individuals walking along. Somewhere (usually behind them) the hail rings out: ‘Hey, you there!’ One individual (nine times out of ten it is the right one) turns round, believing/suspecting/knowing that it is for him, i.e. recognizing that ‘it really is he’ who is meant by the hailing. But in reality these things happen without any succession. The existence of ideology and the hailing or interpellation of individuals as subjects are one and the same thing.

I might add: what thus seems to take place outside ideology (to be precise, in the street), in reality takes place in ideology. What really takes place in ideology seems therefore to take place outside it. That is why those who are in ideology believe themselves by definition outside ideology: one of the effects of ideology is the practical denegation of the ideological character of ideology by ideology: ideology never says, ‘I am ideological’. It is necessary to be outside ideology, i.e. in scientific knowledge, to be able to say: I am in ideology (a quite exceptional case) or (the general case): I was in ideology. As is well known, the accusation of being in ideology only applies to others, never to oneself (unless one is really a Spinozist or a Marxist, which, in this matter, is to be exactly the same thing). Which amounts to saying that ideology has no outside (for itself), but at the same time that it is nothing but outside (for science and reality).

Wew lad. Good thing I'm a disciple of the philosopher Dionysus.
The ideological value imposes upon the subject some esteemed sense of cultural/social/moral validation that has it's basis in tribalistic instincts. Consequently, in an attempt to express one's individuality in the presence of ideological viewpoints, the subject undergoes a pseudo-individuation of sorts in which one experiences a feeling of gratification in the process of over-asserting one's individual character and therefore becomes subject to the ideology, a negation of the individuation process. This can be examined in subjects who partake in practices such as inventing specialized pronouns and other methods of identification. The subject ironically becomes susceptible to identification of the ideology as opposed to the identification of the individual through individual expression because the subject attempts to imitate traits that are perceived as being unique, but in attempting to assert ones uniqueness through practices such as this, which are created in order to establish a sense of individuality, the individuals character inevitably becomes commonplace in the sense of the group, which by definition is antithetical to individuality.

Thinking Dionysus wouldn't be in favor of growing a phallus from one's head and rampant polyamory...

Mujaya
June 26th, 2018, 11:12 AM
It would be more rational to participate in polyamory because it is by nature a utopian/hedonistic value, offering pleasure to those who partake in it. (e.g Hegelianism; only the rational is real, which is the antithesis to Nietzsche's Dionysian irrationality) It is precisely irrational to value something that is sound in a traditional sense because there is no reason to adhere to such a value besides that reason which remains unapparent. "I support these values because my parents told me they were values" is less rational than "I support these values because I've thought extensively about their purpose". Growing a phallus from one's head, however, would be preferable in respect to the Dionysian spirit seeing as genitalia are the physical manifestation of the creating will, and the relationship between the head and the ideas that erupt in the birth-giving that is thought would be aptly represented by such a scalp phallus.

The duplicate mirror-structure of ideology ensures simultaneously:
1. the interpellation of ‘individuals’ as subjects;
2. their subjection to the Subject;
3. the mutual recognition of subjects and Subject, the subjects’ recognition of each other, and finally the subject’s recognition of himself;
4. the absolute guarantee that everything really is so, and that on condition that the subjects recognize what they are and behave accordingly, everything will be all right: Amen – ‘So be it’.

Result: caught in this quadruple system of interpellation as subjects, of subjection to the Subject, of universal recognition and of absolute guarantee, the subjects ‘work’, they ‘work by themselves’ in the vast majority of cases, with the exception of the ‘bad subjects’ who on occasion provoke the intervention of one of the detachments of the (Repressive) State Apparatus. But the vast majority of (good) subjects work all right ‘all by themselves’, i.e. by ideology (whose concrete forms are realized in the Ideological State Apparatuses). They are inserted into practices governed by the rituals of the ISAs. They ‘recognize’ the existing state of affairs (das Bestehende), that ‘it really is true that it is so and not otherwise’, and that they must be obedient to God, to their conscience, to the priest, to de Gaulle, to the boss, to the engineer, that thou shalt ‘love thy neighbour as thyself’, etc. Their concrete, material behaviour is simply the inscription in life of the admirable words of the prayer: ‘Amen – So be it’.

Yes, the subjects ‘work by themselves’. The whole mystery of this effect lies in the first two moments of the quadruple system I have just discussed, or, if you prefer, in the ambiguity of the term subject. In the ordinary use of the term, subject in fact means: (1) a free subjectivity, a centre of initiatives, author of and responsible for its actions; (2) a subjected being, who submits to a higher authority, and is therefore stripped of all freedom except that of freely accepting his submission. This last note gives us the meaning of this ambiguity, which is merely a reflection of the effect which produces it: the individual is interpellated as a (free) subject in order that he shall submit freely to the commandments of the Subject, i.e. in order that he shall (freely) accept his subjection, i.e. in order that he shall make the gestures and actions of his subjection ‘all by himself’. There are no subjects except by and for their subjection. That is why they ‘work all by themselves’.

There are no subjects except by and for their subjection. That is why they ‘work all by themselves’.
Correct, because as I had previously articulated, the emphasis upon which the Subject places upon the subjects in respect to subjection, respects the framework for the culture in which the ideological values were molded, the religious and metaphysical needs of the individual, which I had not articulated. The subjects become subject to subjection precisely because there is no emphasis placed on the necessity of subjection and respects choice, which is an appeal to reason. A good metaphor for this phenomenon is Zizek's politically correct boss. In this metaphor, the emphasis on an employee's will to rebel against the tyrannical nature of the boss is mediated by the politically correct boss' seemingly un-tyrannical nature, by which the employee is not inspired to or becomes averse to rebellion and misbehavior, destroying the ability of the employee to emphasize his will in his relationship to his boss. The employee is thereby subjected to the boss' tyrannical un-tyrannical nature, by which his behavior is being mediated in it's entirety by reason, an unreasonable circumstance. Not emphasizing the subject's will to subjection creates subjection to the will of the subject; therefore, any will to subject is thereby benevolent, because it is will against subjection, and any emphasis on freedom of choice elicits freedom against choice; "Thou shalt" is thereby less tyrannical than "you may". Ideology is tyrannical because you can choose to be ideological.
