    powerful but not very happy We are paying a very high price for losing touch with the real world the world of sensations bodies animals trees rocks Over the last two centuries humans have increasingly lost the ability to live in the here and now to be aware of their sensations and of the immediate world surrounding them We increasingly live in a virtual reality of our own making This has given us immense new powers but it has also made us strangers to ourselves and more alienated than ever before So we are very powerful but not very happy Yuval Noah Harari FROM Adbusters 121 Manifesto for World Revolution Part 4 Order this issue Subscribe to Adbusters Facebook Twitter Google Pinterest Authenticity for saleA culture of care is advertised and celebrated and cherished Care and isolation Also In This Magazine The monotony of sleep and sleeplessness In its repetition and unconcealment it is one of the unvanquishable remnants of the everyday October 28 2015 The Obliteration Room Yayoi Kusama breaks down the mental architecture of our global environment October 15 2015 Remember me I bumped into myself just the other day October 2 2015 The underground man by Andy

    seen as itself a delicate and profound moment when the separation between a shallow surface and an authentic interiority collapses The modernists flirtations with the surface led them to confront the profound imbrication of interiority and exteriority essence and covering the organic and the inorganic So the surface is unavoidably a political site of contestation over which human values are negotiated the modernist surface of pure technological invention was always already steeped in a colonial dream about impure others Anne Anlin Cheng FROM Adbusters 122 Manifesto for World Revolution Part 5 Order this issue Subscribe to Adbusters Facebook Twitter Google Pinterest Can Western decadence last Conflict Kitchen Also In This Magazine Play Jazz Jazz is the big brother of Revolution Revolution follows it around Miles Davis November 27 2015 Jump Cut The jump cut is a technique where two sequential subjects of a similar idea are cut up and reordered from a slightly different angle or position This type of technique November 27 2015 What is left of the Left Either we will establish an ecological society or society will go under for everyone November 23 2015 Great again At the height of the post 9 11 surge of patriotism

  • The monotony of sleep and sleeplessness - Adbusters | Journal of the mental environment
    This is the monotony of sleep and sleeplessness night after night In its repetition and unconcealment it is one of the unvanquishable remnants of the everyday One of the many reasons human cultures have long associated sleep with death is that they each demonstrate the continuity of the world in our absence However the only temporary absence of the sleeper always contains a bond to a future to a possibility of renewal and hence of freedom It is an interval into which glimpses of an unlived life of a postponed life can edge faintly into awareness The nightly hope for the insensible state of deep sleep is at the same time an anticipation of an awakening that could hold something unforeseen In Europe after 1815 during several decades of counter revolution reversals and derailments of hope there were artists and poets who intuited that sleep was not necessarily an evasion or escape from history Shelly and Courbet for example are two who understood that sleep was another form of historical time that its withdrawal and apparent passivity also encompassed the unrest and inquietude of becoming that was essential to the nascence of a more just and egalitarian future Now in the twenty first century the disquiet of sleep has a more troubling relation to the future Located somewhere on the border between the social and the natural sleep ensures the presence in the world of the phasic and cyclical patterns essential to life and incompatible with capitalism Sleep s anomalous persistence has to be understood in relation to the ongoing destruction of the processes that sustain existence on the planet Because capitalism cannot limit itself the notion of preservation or conservation is a systemic impossibility Against this background the restorative inertness of sleep counters the deathliness of all the accumulation

  • The (can’t get) Lost Generation - Adbusters | Journal of the mental environment
    fleeting desperate and dangerous Bloody uprisings trade in secular tyrants for religious oppressors Communities of resistance splinter despite the hashtags Festivals accelerate the carnivalesque with hallucinatory techgnosis We fly headlong from old ruts tripping over fresh trenches in the terra incognito of altered states amid drone vibrations In a virtual thrall we don t see the long spiral of a hawk riding the thermals or note the migratory geometry of geese in flight Deep sea creatures die off without ceremony their loss as unsounded as the depths of our unconscious We follow millions of distractions like schools of flitting fish but our thoughts reach the surface of cognition belly up Hemmingway s lost generation sat around bars and cafes in Paris They drank to an absence of moral signposts They learned to write in the spiritual shadow of the machine gun the industrial age s first great horror with the power to level superstructures of meaning These ex pat artists toasted the still smoking ruins of the first Great War and found a culture of artistic potency through hungry wanderings down the long avenues The present generation is similarly leveled by new technologies but too sated with information and image to germinate creative breakthroughs Hunger is good discipline and you learn from it Hemmingway writes in A Moveable Feast I m so far ahead of them now that I can t afford to eat regularly Bookstores and blogs are clogged with authors selling the path to success Look at me their recursive logic goes I became rich selling the fantasy of fulfillment and so can you The snake oil of self improvement is sold in a plaza full of husks Welcome to the supermarket of the sixth extinction In Peter Matthiessen s zen classic The Snow Leopard he never finds the elusive beast he seeks in the Himalayas Instead he feels awe with the knowledge of the animal s existence He discovers solace in mountains dotted with prayer flags and temples When he finds the leopard s paw prints in the snow they resonate like a koan about absence nourishing the deep mind while the grasping brain starves David Foster Wallace likened individual consciousness to a map The metaphor is apt evoking our dense and connected neuropaths It is also a post modern symbol for the soul being as a map and trailhead for where we go and what we think A generation raised by helicopter parents is ill equipped to master the algorithms that control daily life Wallace warns against the desire to premeditate every experience in Infinite Jest Almost nothing important that ever happens to you happens because you engineer it Destiny has no beeper destiny always leans trenchcoated out of an alley with some sort of psst that you usually can t even hear because you re in such a rush to or from something important you ve tried to engineer Another master of leaving the map novelist Haruki Murakami writes about the necessity of going there
