'I DON'T KNOW IT'S AN ILLUSION I DON'T CARE'
CURATED BY GERARDO CONTRERAS

I. OCCLUSIVE CONTORTIONS

ANNOUNCING THE CONCLUSION OF HAUNTING DOES NOT MEAN ANNOUNCING THE RECURRENT OCCLUSION OF SPACE AND SPACING BUT AS NOTHING DIFFERENT OR ATTAINING OR FULFILLING. HAUNTING MEANS THAT THERE WAS NEVER ANOTHER OUTSIDE, THAT, THE ANNIHILATING TRANSDIMENSIONAL SHEATH BETWEEN SIGNIFIER AND SIGNIFIED WAS NEVER ALREADY THERE. THE SPECTER OF A PRE-BIOLOGICAL HUMANOID PAST IN OTHER PLANETS AND GALAXIES HAS INFORMED RADICAL LESBIAN SEPARATIST TECHNO-SCIENCE DYSTOPIAS FOR MORE THAN 30 YEARS.

WHILE THE CONFINES OF SILICON-BASED COMPUTING MAY HAVE MOMENTARILY SUSPENDED SOME OF THE MOST EXOTIC PREDICTIONS OF CYBER-LESBIAN FUTURISTS; CURRENT DEVELOPMENTS CONNECTED WITH NANOTECHNOLOGY, QUANTUM COMPUTING, BIOTECHNOLOGY, AND COGNITIVE NEUROSCIENCES PROVIDE ABUNDANT RESOURCES FOR WITHSTANDING AND EVEN EMBODYING A POST-BIOLOGICAL QUEER IDENTITY.

II. CYBERGOTHIC SPECTRALITY

HAUNTING, AS A PERIPHRASTIC SYMBOL IS SIMPLY THIS APPREHENSION OF AN UNDOING OF THE SIMPLE TWOFOLD ANTAGONISM BETWEEN PRESENCE AND ABSENCE: THE SPECTRALITY EFFECT, WHICH, DOES NOT CONSIST IN UNDOING THIS ANTAGONISM, OR EVEN A CLASH, BETWEEN ACTUAL, OPERATIONAL PRESENCE AND ITS OTHER. THERE IS A PARTICULAR QUEER BIOLOGY, A CONSTANT MOVEMENT ACROSS BORDERS AND BOUNDARIES, AND A REALIZATION THAT DICHOTOMIES ARE NOT FLAT STRUCTURES BUT ARE INHABITED BY DECOHERENT ORBITAL FIELDS.

QUEER CYBER-POLITICS IS ANOTHER GLOSS ON THIS LARGER PROJECT OF DECONSTRUCTING THE METAPHYSICS OF PRESENCE. ULTIMATELY, THE CONCEPT OF QUEER CYBER-POLITICS INDICATES THAT ALL SIGNIFICATIONS COULD BE UNPROBLEMATICALLY SUTURED TO AN ORIGINAL SET OF PARTICLES (A FIELD). POST-ORGANIC HUMANISM IS THUS INTERPOLATED INTO A TRANSDIMENSIONAL WAVE FUNCTION THAT INCLUDES BEING-THIN AS A TOTALITY.

III. ORGASMIC DECOHERENCE

HOW CAN WE DELIBERATE OUTSIDE THE NOTION OF VIRTUAL CREATURES AS PERIPHRASTIC DISPOSITIFS AND INVESTIGATE INSTEAD HOW THE EMBODIED POST-BIOLOGICAL HUMAN SUBJECT IS BEING MOLDED BY A TECHNO SCIENTIFIC POLITICS? IT IS CRUCIAL TO INITIATE COSMIC LESBIANISM INTO THE VERY ASSEMBLY OF EVERY HYPOTHESIS, BEGINNING WITH THE HYPOTHESES OF BEING-THIN AND SPACE-TIME DISPLACEMENT. A SPACE BECOMES THE GHOST, A VOID BETWEEN SIGNIFIER AND SIGNIFIED.

THAT'S WHAT THE GHOST IS, AFTER ALL: SOMETHING THAT IS DELETED, OR UNDONE, BUT THAT REJECTS TO BE COMPLETELY NONEXISTENT; SOMETHING THAT IS NOT HERE, NOT NOW, BUT THAT CONTINUES TO CONTAMINATE UPON THE REAL. THE GHOST IS A RADICAL NON-NEGATIVITY, A RESIDUAL, QUASI-MATERIAL CONTENTION THAT DISLOCATES ALL TRANSPOSITIONS OF NEGATIVITY.
