Media Psychology: Ego Goes SuperNova with Smart Phones

The extreme ends of Narcisism are evident under electronic conditions to begin to appear to be its opposite: the smart phone’s constant state of tactile-reflection is very mentally rutting to the ego in its collectivist message, and so to speak; goes SuperNova.

Meaning, that in imploding upon itself, (the ego) i.e. looking at yourself “too much” whether it be on Facebook or FaceTime—you suddenly realize with electronic speed, that now instead of being in an isolated living room theatre, you have the rest of the world visiting ad-infinitum.

This virtual sort of tribalism is the feudal precursor to the physical based, off-grid living we’ll be doing very soon enough. Always remember the Hunger Games and O’Brian will always be torturing us since, and as McLuhan says: Terror is the prevailing emotion in the new eras.

Aside from paranoia and joy.

I’ll add that this also joins us in a very Buddhist sort of way. This comes from the Western belief of progress and lack of relativity that the electronic jungle wipes out. Boundless space is infinite so you don’t feel so great in the distances traveled per se. Medieval is this boundless future full of fantastic, with such things in it…


Voca’s Department Store – Vesper Heliotropic Excerpt

“Are you being punished?” Camille asked her after a short while of the two girls just looking at each other.

“Why don’t you come and find out?” The girl spat back, smiling intensely, curling her legs up a bit, and playing with her hot red pigtails.

“Oh my God!” Camille tore a glance back at Kim.

“Is daddy good to you?” inquired Kim joining the force he’d been defeated by.

You can be my daddy,” the girl replied, looking a little more serious now.

“This is fun!”

Yeah it is!” Replied Camille, instantly.

“Ask her another question!” Kim cheered on.

“It’s so funny, you really think that’s a little girl in there.”

“But it’s–”

“–Not, it’s not.”

Doris had been the first…

“…Doris had been the first. The remains of her body churned in a state of suspension as The Gentleman had emptied the blood and changed the soap at different intervals. This was so that the body would go through decomposition at different stages.

The dark otherwise empty room was lined on either side with moving bodies in the metallic yellow and blue of twelve industrial washing machines. In front of each of the spinning engines of the machines was a nice neat set of clothes and shoes along with all the other personal things on their person. A book, a Light-Board, a deck of cards, notes, and a tiny micro world of their life was laid out before the churning of their bodies, as if respectively, each of them had merely stepped into a hot bath…”

Corporate Hegemony and Internet Philosophy

The corporate superiority of the redneck or hillbilly in terms of communication that is all at once, integral, in depth awareness and slang tongue. Coupled with a real time, emotional, instant multidimensional medevil, non-abstract, purely expression driven linguistic form.

The new ideology is oral tradition and tribal-inclusive peaceful and intelligent. We reject the philosophy of our forebears here who hold humanity in slavery and teach the doctrine of self-sacrifice rather than the balanced median of selfishness first and love, second. –One cannot love ANYONE else to any degree or form, without first loving and then, falling in love with oneself.

People have a sense that by buying products, they're being had, in order to counteract this, since age in memoria, we have henceforth sold them the idea that in buying Into the system, they're rebelling. And since, every form of rebellion has been packaged behind every product. Think missiles. Think McDonalds. Pay your taxes. Buy Ice Cream. Think milk.Drink. Drive. Give me your money. Good job.

Aphoristic Futurist Thoughts: Asynchronous Messages to & from the Self

“Sat Night Live, SNL, reminds us that there is a center left in the world, with centralized cultural attitudes. Ex. Humor acts to curtail nonsense.”

– Diary Aug 2010

"You got a family!? Well I eat cottage fuckin' cheese for dinner every night mothafucka!"

“Looking at the fountains, she witnessed the possibility of not returning to an identical pattern. The water could not be predicted in specifics, only in general waves of where all the different drops would fall.”


“You really underplay how much Spatial recognition capabilities play into cognition – until I have an under hallucinatory experience.”

“The opinion today is that what’s really going on, the directly observed, as opposed to someone imagining it for you–innately has more authenticity to an relative ’empiric value.’ (Relative to our methods of data collection, today)

But as the result of what is really the evolution of the progressive sophistication of media and hence, storytelling, the stories will get realer and realer until they are no longer even slghtly inaccurate, because their content: people, will be nothing but reflexively obedient.

If we’re not conscious of this in an every day popularized way, this could create a cultural monster. And then the possibility of systematization of all this, when it’s packaged, bought and sold on the open market.

And so, there will come a point, a day where the layman’s ability to experiment with this reflection, to poke his finger not at, but into the mirror, then he will have superceded the former tools of science. And thus, a new scientific method will be bornm based off and inspearable from its technology, which are one in every reflexive sense.

– Diary Sept 2009

“The logic goes, that if you observe something in real life, it an has authenticity that writer’s and their media can’t allegedly convey in whatever medium.”

– Diary Sept 2009
