So.... as a Marxist one is forced to abjure, say, Lovelock
and his theories on Gaia, which are after all "mystic
forces that act on whole organisms"?
At each stage in the advance of science, the mystical (no quotes) passes a
threshold and enters the realm of the knowable. Capital in/as agriculture, the
relentless logic of value production; the drive and thirst for the ultimate
juice: surplus value and the resulting science of "extending the market
life/value" of agricultural produce, is the shape of applied science.
Capital has juice. Squeeze the fruit/labor.
"Something is wrong" with my apples and tomatoes.
Something is wrong with my baby.
Capital in agriculture is indifferent to all cycles of nature and time
frames except the cycle and time of it circulation and reproduction. Capital don't
need no sun. Capital is dark and my baby is blue.
"Ain't I blue?"
Ain't I blue?"
Ain't these tears in my eyes telling you?"
There is something wrong with my baby, something wrong with my lemons.
The thick skin and lack of juice is replaced by capital juice, in machinery
- dead labor, as touch and artificial sensory organs, whose touch and handling
of vegetation requires altering the texture of my lemons. . . . in the
process of removal, packaging, shipment to distant markets, unpacking and then
placement on display.
Capital artificial sensory organs as dead labor artificializes human sensory
Polanyi called it the destruction of localized markets by the state. Capital
is not of the earth and its local markets do not harmonious flow together as
a law of nature. The state has to enforce a nature like law on capital and
markets. The world market for the proletariat will come to mean an interactive
web of local markets whose sum total = world system of producers uninhibited
by capital, in body, mind and spirit.
The exploitation is unbearable.
The debasement of nature at the hands of capital impacts the nature of our
species and the species rate of exploitation.
A greater magnitude of money is now required to make the same amount of
What four lemons would yield now requires two bags of lemons.
Capital juice for lemon juice.
No more lemonade stands because kids cannot afford the capital overhead and
the consumer is priced out of the small market. The state enters and demands
everyone purchase world lemonade or drink the Kool Aid.
Lemon juice was once put in warm water and used as a cleaning agent for say
glass and within the human organism loosens sticky food substance allowing
undesirable toxins to be passed from the organism. That is why long ago we
called it "lemon help me" - aid.
Feet don't fail me now.
Capital lobotomized the human brain without surgical instruments and the
result is loss of short and long term memory of proprieties in direct proportion
to increase of capital.
Green is oxygen and red is alkalinity because colors in nature reveal their
properties as color in nature.
An apple a day keeps the doctor away.
The change in color "screams I am in decay, do not eat/consume me."
Capital create natural flavor as a favor and natural colors to hide and
disguise nature's color and then . . .turn everything money green. Who but an
insane man conceives of green money and "greenbacks," other than one who accepts
capital reproduction as on the back of the laws of nature? Green money =
oxygen of capital. Greenbacks creates wetbacks.
Baby got back.
Capital is a social relations of production that inverts production
relations in slavery to capital as "the social" driving the relations. Capital Money
is the oxygen of capital as it reproduces itself. Capital slowly strangles
itself, without dying a natural death, as it metabolizes labor . . . as this
labor has its oxygen depleted, in turn depleting the green of capital. The
vicious cycle once again. The full obese starving body that is society. Society
decays from over eating = over accumulation of green, while the oxygen supply
is contaminated and depleted. This is a crime.
A Capital crime.
For the love of money.
The capital psychosis: I need some of that "mean green."
No, Mr. Capital . . . you need oxygen to feed your starving brain and
capital feed body.
Medicine means nature properties with healing qualities. Science as medical
science, is science because it creates properties that mimic healing
properties in nature. Each evolution of this mimicking of nature, distance the mimic
from nature which now appears to each new generation as a symbolic extra
nature relationship. Penicillin is the mimic of a natural concoction as nature -
mud and mold. Penicillin and her mimic other "cillin's" constitute
themselves on the chain of development as merchant capital, industrial capital . . .
fiction capital, finance capital and then the emergence of capital as a
notion - imaginary, value devoid of value.
The fiction capital when reflected through 100 mirror images,
and then the buying and selling of "mirrors"becomes law
- derivative, financial instruments, CDOOOOOOOOOOOOO's and . . . shit,
the 100th mirror image sold to the sucker
is a notional value = super symbolic relations.
The King has no clothes of value.
Look with the minds eye very carefully at the 68th mirror sold. See how the
light bends in the mirror and the distortion appears distorted?
The enemy within GM is the property relations, but one cannot see the
property relations inside a pill. One cannot look at the apple and see its property
relations at work. Once you bite the apple, its Adam all over again. Can't
blame Eve for that.
The fetish blinds the naked eye/I.
