A kind of a "dangerous supplement", marked, scarred on a body, post-orgasmically, always, already in anticipation of (a) crisis OR for a desert avec 'agape'. Mindb(l)ogg(l)ing Noise. "Avalanche, would you share my last pursuit?" (Baudelaire)

Academic Anti-Establishment

...no surprises...

"If this contradiction [between two antagonistic classes] is sufficient to define the situation when revolution is the 'task of the day' it cannot of its own simple, direct power induce a 'revolutionary situation', nor a fortiriori a situation of revolutionary rupture and the triumph of the revolution. If this contradiction is to become 'active' in the strongest sense, to become a ruptural principle, there must be an accumulation of 'circumstances' and 'currents' so that whatever their origin and sense (and many of them will necessarily be paradoxically foreign to the revolution in origin and sense or even its 'direct opponents') they 'fuse' into a 'ruptural unity'..."

Louis Althusser, Contradiction and Overdetermination, June 1962
