modes of production.
1 tools
the environment is adapted to our desire through a conscious design. as with all modes of production, this forces a reciprocal action, a reaction. we still must adapt our self in order to create and use the tool. we must adapt to the new environment we have created. tools reason for production is a belief in economy – a belief that it is better to create a spear and spear a fish than to catch one with bare hands or eat only berries. a tool is only an object without a user.
2 monuments
we adapt our self to the environment by creating a replica, a decoy. death may happen to us but not to our tombstone. we attempt to create our self in a way that will endure the environment inhabited. a monument is only an object without a user.
3 life
life involves a division from the creator. a cybernetic creation which can operate on its own. a creation of another being.
4 change
change has no purpose. change is production without a creator. change is entropy.
5 destruction
destruction produces a change of state through entropy. the ‘destruction’ of a building produces a reconfiguration of space. the elements remain. ‘destruction’ by fire is a consumption which changes the elements involved. it changes the chemical composition. but with the production and collision of anti-matter with matter. absence is produced. space is immediately claimed and redistributed though entropy. as when we destroy a vacuum. as with death. (not your own death – we can never know this – but others death)
6 search
if we assume solipsism, this is the greatest (and only) mode of production. the production of what was not previously there.
