A book that studies transcripts of meetings, letters and notes from third parties involved in the Mussolini-Hilter relationship between 1934-1944. His author, Pierre Milza, a Science Po teacher, is one of top-tier specialists of Mussolini. Like a…

Most come from my reading of Nick Land’s Fanged Noumena, but not only. Kuber When reading Land’s Fanged Noumena, you will encounter the letter K numerous…

    Whats is E/ACC?

    What’s E/ACC (pronounced /ˈiːak/) ? At first it was a meme, distributed around Tweets, bios and Twitter spaces. Patient zero unknown. Newspapers started to talk about it, but only scratched the surface. This post is an attempt to reverse engineer E/ACC, to get its substance. Accelerationism First we need to define accelerationism. Accelerationism refers to…

    Roman Empire Did Not Fall: It Became Software

    Imagine that the Roman Empire did not fall but just became Software? If the hardware of the Empire has disappeared, its memic image has definitively survived. What if the choice of Christianism, by the very last Roman emperor Constantin, was a virus designed to upload the Empire into some sort of memetic entity? All the…

    It was Eva’s morning. She was gently wake-up by her blindfold, which was integrating a sunrise alarm clock system. Blindfold that only this connected alarm system can unlock, otherwise it stays in place. Like everyday, her first vision is Gaspard. It was her husband, her lover, her owner.

    BABYLON A.D. II

    I restarted a book I left ten years ago. Satellite Sister by Maurice Dantec, the sequel to its Babylon Babies. The story has an amazing cyberpunk setting, taking place in 2030,  involving space race, global governance, UNollar, Richard Brandson. It’s the perfect Deus Ex bootleg. Unfortunately this book does not exist in English, but I…
