an excursus in an anthropological politics close to anthropological philosophy

 

Autumn 1997.

Is Ted Kaczynski a schizophrenic or a criminal ? The man (55 years old) called “Unabomber” is now under process. A jury in the United States will be the audience of his answers regard his behavior during eighteen years during which he sent sixteen letters bomb exploding. He created a climate of fear in the States.
The trial began in Sacramento (California), the defense attorney of the former mathematics professor (Berkeley) pleads for the mental infirmity in order to save the life for his client. Theodore has become a hermit in his struggle against the computers.

Very uphill battle for the defense because in the States every behavior against the establishment, the actions anti-system is severely punished. Further problem is that Kaczynski refuses meeting with the psychiatrists.

Unabomber is accused for murder of three persons and injured twenty-three. The State’s attorney describes him like a radical extremist that hates everybody and everything relates with civilization : traffic noise, computers, pollution. Briefly he hates everythings conflicting with his view of the world.

between august and september in venice

2017 : between august and september one year ago . the time matches the future and past . the sight of ancient visions seem like a hidden village within the mind , the remembrances , the smell of past , the sound of water along the canals, the sunny day fades away . the passenger on the gondola is carried slowly outside the frame

amulet/charm + an excerpt by schopenhauer

Edmund V. Gillon Jr

Tibetan Tantric Charm Amulet (reproduced from the original woodblock) , 1978.

 

 

 

‘The fundamental tenet of the Vedanta school consisted not in denying the existence of matter, that is of solidity, impenetrability, and extended figure (to deny which would be lunacy), but in correcting the popular notion of it, and in contending that it has no essence independent of mental perception; that existence and perceptibility are convertible terms.’

 

(arthur schopenhauer, the world as will and representation, leipzig 1819)
