"Dystopias are just as seductive as utopias. These -topias are totalizing, fantastic places in our heads and may reflect our reality or become our reality – heads which are connected to our bodies (which in fact are our bodies). Topias that don’t adequately map the territory of our experiences of human experience, let alone observation and experimentation."

'OUR CURRENT DRAMA'
Language of 'information'
"I observe that the language of ‘information’ runs across all domains and often is the core or grounding language or concept no matter what domain, field, or discipline.
‘Memes’ are simply one of the latest and most popular versions of this. But annoying internet memes are like an annoying pimple – it gets all the attention but there’s still a whole body, a whole organism, a whole person that goes with it.
Maybe we have to pop a social media meme in order to get relieved of it and get back to the larger dynamics, the larger realities of the construction, flows, and interactions of information."
