Today:

mythology = myth-making machine + operation ↔ perpetuum mobile

question +  (Wow) = adj – death

technology + plow = laser printer + a field,

nature + Echo =  keyboard – 0

endure +  x + endure + 2x + … + nx = endure

Narcissus + [     ] = self + typing

+

                                                                                                         = Pan

Today the place of myth is no place

The place of myth is not

But it should be looked for

And so it might emerge

Where one least expects it

The book of myths is endless but it remains to be written to infinity

And so

There it goes –

It continues

Mythology, the machine for myth-making is in operation

And keeps running

Like a perpetuum mobile

Yet even if the place of myth today is no-place

The question of what one makes up and what makes one up

Remains

And there remains the mytho-poetic

– the opening of a space that allows one to create

rituals of understanding around the social space

around pervasive epistemological-ontological constructs (according to Ricardo Dominguez)

- a meta-space for transmission

(according to Ricardo Dominguez, again)

where conversation can happen

where experimentation can happen.

And there’s the fact of endurance (yet, is it a fact?)

-       of the myth that endures

-       of what endures through myth

-       of what endures as myth

-       of what suffers (some kind of change/transformation) and, suffering, (change/transformation) continues through time.

So, even if the place of myth today is no-place

The question of what one makes up and what makes one up

Remains

Here, the question is being taken up

posed

and explored/

It asks about myth as a condition of possibility

for a particular manner of thinking and kind of thought

for a kind of experience of thought that is yet to be found

It asks about mythology as an embracing of undecidability

with respect to nature and technology

today.

“The real must be fictionalized in order to be thought.”

(Jacques Rancière, The Politics of Aesthetics)
