Philosophy
In my work several decades ago (I mention this only in relation to Badiou), I wrote and write of farming-out; the perception of temporality, of progress, resulting in the collocation of disciplines, subjects, within which specialists take care of advance, increased knowledge, goods. Temporality tends towards complexity; cellular automata can grow in-conceivably chaotic within a few generations. The regular or reiterated which is death (certainly without recursion which leads to quantitative jumps) is unimaginable; it is the circumlocution, centrifugal forcing, of the world. The apparency of disturbance tends towards centering. "Now I must proceed without time."; with the perception of time; of what is known now, what is processed now, as opposed to; what was processed; what was processed then. What was conceived then; what I conceive now what was conceived then. This is a conceiving; a state of conceiving; the bundle of conceivings constitutes the world which appears undergoing transformation; always irreversible. But not irreversible in fact: from presencing, from presence there is nothing to return to; the state is unpresent, non-present; one says "the state has vanished" or "we've moved on."
