These notes are based on the lectures given in a series of nightmares between October and December 2012. The notes are self-contained and do not assume any preliminary knowledge of life, although some physics background could help for a stronger comprehension. However, the appendix may require some familiarity with the philosophy of philosophizing on politics.
The chapters are suggested to take one nightmare each, though the student may find it useful to elaborate on each subject by working out examples by the end of each chapter. The chronology of the facts were distorted in the presentation for pedagogical reasons. The student is therefore invited to go through the previous material before moving on to the next chapter.
The author is indebted to no one for any support whatsoever.
Chapter I: Fuck future plans
The science: Future is present relative to a few years ago when "future plans" were decided to be the defining basis.
The fact: Thus, the future is apparently designed by the protagonist to be that swamp in which the culprit sleeps on the couch while the protagonist cuddles with whomever is appropriate - particularly when the culprit happens to visit for a couple of days since months.
The result: The given set of conditions are exactly what is called not a relationship.
Conclusion: Ergo, fuck future plans.
Chapter II: Beyond the light spectrum
The science: Human beings radiate light that is not visible for their eyes, eg. through their skin. They are indeed capable of consciously producing more of it, eg. by running. That one can consciously produce it is not contradictory to the fact that one cannot observe it. Yet, there exists a technology that allows one to observe them by utilizing special eyeglasses.
The fact: The protagonist is time and space invariant under
1) being a civilized attention whore,
2) never admitting (1),
3) rationalizing her acts with respect to the master plan of blanketing (1) and (2), (See Appendix for an example.)
contrary to the classical claim of everything being in constant change.
The result: It is theoretically impossible to have direct communication with someone who has a rationalization for any crime she committed.
Conclusion: Ergo, "Fuck communication!" is a void statement in the absence of communication. (See Chapter IV for more details.)
Chapter III: Lies, hypocrisy, egoism
The science: "Slippery slope" is defined to be an argumentation fallacy of jumping from one statement to another without giving sufficient justification.
premise. I am learning a lot from the discussions we have with him.
conclusion. Therefore I will sleep and wake up with him while you miserably masturbate on the sofa.
is a not-very-common example of the slippery slope fallacy.
The result: See rationalization (Chapter II).
Conclusion: Ergo, shit is being served warm in this restaurant.
Chapter IV: The zero element
Some necessary conditions for communication are the presence of a transmitter, the existence of a message, and the presence of receiver that processes the transmitted message.
The fact: "I will be suffering the consequences of this." is a clear attempt to communicate desperation, provided that the listener bothered to listen.
The result: Lack of communication is an invalid excuse. Communication requires some damn intention to communicate! (See Chapter III for lies &c.)
Conclusion: Ergo, x*0=0 for any real x.
Chapter V: Hope, optimism and other diseases
The science: A diver who went too deep into the ocean has two options:
i) get drowned, holding his/her breath as long as possible
ii) die of the bends, trying to quickly reach the surface.
The fact: One does not simply put a relationship on hold.
Please make sure that you closed all the running programs. Resetting a relationship may cause loss of important personal data.
Conclusion: Ergo: "Off with his head!"
Chapter VI: Further reading
The science: Fuck theory.
The fact: Fuck practice.
" 'I want a clean cup,'interrupted the Hatter: 'let's all move one place on.'
He moved on as he spoke, and the Dormouse followed him: the March Hare moved into the Dormouse's place, and Alice rather unwillingly took the place of the March Hare. The Hatter was the only one who got any advantage from the change: and Alice was a good deal worse off than before, as the March Hare had just upset the milk-jug into his plate."
Conclusion: Ergo: " 'At any rate I'll never go there again!' said Alice as she picked her way through the wood. 'It's the stupidest tea-party I ever was in all my life!' "
Appendix: Political chantage
The science: Universally, any argument is won by referring to revolutionary ethics.
The fact: "What does this act serve for?" is a statement that can be applied at any time when the protagonist is not willing to discuss.
The result: Marx used to spend some of his nights with his family, they used to read out passages from Shakespeare, and they actually enjoyed it. This possibly proves Marx being attached to aristocratic aesthetics.
Conclusion: Ergo; revolutionary romanticism has childish side effects that result in cheerfully blanketing ignorance and crime, and thereby avoiding the consequences. (See Chapter II for blanketing and rationalization.)
