We can say that we live in the world Hegel created. We all live in each other’s head as long as we agree for them to live in ours. When we argue, we envision how we appear within the mind of the other. Then we think about thinking about our image within their head (which lives in our head). This reciprocal recognition is a Hegelian term where we recognize a “baseline” where we can all agree is the representation of the real word. I will propose a Pseudo-telekinetic phenomenon where we harm each other using our minds. Yes, a form of an ‘imaginary voodoo doll’ that we form of our enemies and enact our vengeance in the imagination. All it needs is an apparatus of capture and a language that can “cover up” or appropriate it. The homogeneous (baseline) social field builds connection and it forms a kind of maintenance to keep congruence through time. This way, we can really on had data instead of faith that our image (or their image) remains representative of how we want them to be. Weather it be in our heads or theres.
The Modus Operandi
However, the case can certainty be made that social media does operate with this Modus Operandi. All the moving parts and components are there: the apparatus of capture, flows of desirous-revenge. Comparative spaces, appropriative spaces, growing-adults, flows-of-growth, and flows-of-production. It’s almost intuitive and obvious that this is how it works. but in a loosely, partially connected a-priori way. Individual compare themselves to find “worthiness” to life. Their “soul” is what individual use to measure themselves. This cardboard cut-out of a thing is orphan-ized, truncated. It never honers the flows-of-growth the individual is participating in. That’s why adults fight over trivial things that could easily be left by being “the bigger man.” Unfortunately, growing-adults are signing up for their own condemnation. In capitalistic spaces, they are short-changed whenever they negotiate. By what? money? A business deal? A relationship? An encounter? Everything must be about “a learning experience.” No longer do we produce for the sake of producing. Every job must lead to a career. Every relationship someone has to “find themselves.” Negotiation is a term of The Language of Production. The language of production always refers back to itself because it’s all about utility. Growing adults however, are engaged in flows of growth. The ‘negotiation’ was never about money at all but life-force. It is ability to affirm life as is. No one can do this while indebted by someone they hate. That’s why is say that the problem of Freakout Culture is a Universal problem in that it’s fueled by hate. Hate has nothing to do with indebtedness but it must be forgiven in the same way sins are forgiven: one by one in detail. The sinner must pay with guilt. This is the Catholic practice of Penance. The solution imposed on us the Christian in the sense that all sins are forgiven by the blood of Christ. This ‘solution’ is becoming less appropriate because capitalism, or rather the “sprit of capitalism,” engages flows of production to create more capital. This is done by obligation someone with through debt.
