  • Love vs Belonging

    “I would say the community of love is a community living to share the absence of common being. Not the absence of being–in–common, but the absence of common being,” said Jean-Luc Nancy one day or maybe several times in various different ways. Then the other day one could see the following written at Berghain’s restroom: […]

  • John McAfee

    John McAfee, the founder of the famous anti-virus software company, is a true venture fiction entrepreneur. After leaving his company cashing in $250 Mln in the 90s, he took on the path of adventures. His first venture was a yoga ashram in Colorado where he was busy enjoying the everyday pleasures of life, including his […]

  • Polysingularity of Water

    Water is a great example of a natural entity that is polysingular. It can maintain several different dynamic states at once that interact through its own liquid matter to produce non-equilibrium stability. The constant movement of water creates perturbations within the substance, which then come into direct contact with earth, wind, light and reflections. The […]

  • Venture Fiction

    Venture fiction is a way of practicing polysingularity. When we talk about the ability to be in different realms simultaneously in the way that’s loyal and 100% committed to each and every one of them, we encounter the limitations of time and space. This is a risk and that’s where the venture comes in: a […]

  • Immunization

    Polysingularity is a practice of immunization. Contagion occurs on many different levels. It may be an infectious disease, an ideology, a way of thinking, a set of habits, morals, code of behavior, the language we use, the movements we do, the music we hear, the feelings we have. Immunization, then, can be both a way […]

  • Alice in Wonderland

    Alice in Wonderland is a journey through irrationality of logic. However, within a text polysingularity is reduced and restricted by the rules of grammar, syntaxis, and linearity of a written word. Instead, we applied a special method of disassembling the text into the clusters of meaning circulation, which are connected to each other through network. […]

  • Shades of Gray

    Repetition and difference are the two processes at the core of polysingularity. The shades of gray change at each iteration, the shape remains the same. The relation between the feature that is invariant and the feature that is constantly changing defines the nature of the object and the potential it has to be perceived or […]

  • Programming

    Software development is polysingular. The various frameworks and models developed for computer programming are essentially translations of the world’s complexity into electricity and back. Computer languages enable us to realize the same process using multiple possible ways. The basic building blocks of programming are variables (basic building blocks), classes (types of things) and objects (things […]

  • The Bible, Genesis

    How to read an intention instead of reading a text? When I read, my imagination meets the necessity of the written word to unfold in a linear way. What if I want to encounter the imagination of the one who wrote the text? It is rarely that we have the complete narrative line as we […]

    You know how it usually happens, right? He’s standing in the middle of the room. Then he starts walking, coming a little bit closer… standing… waiting… walking off a little bit… looking… thinking… thinking… thinking… walking towards you again… a little bit hesitant maybe… Then he walks back into the opposite corner again… Fixes his […]

  • Acronym

    Polysingularity of acronyms becomes evident when they are put one next to another. The slight differences in letters and appearances do not obscure the invariance of intention towards simplification and unification, which is more often than not dictated by corporate interests to subjugate polysingularity of a construct to its own commercial interests.

  • Table Surface

    A table surface is still only if one is not looking and even in this case it’s moving but at the time scale that’s beyond our immediate concern. However, when we look at the surface of the table, we realize its polysingularity through the continuous reactivation of visual neurons, which, in turn, synchronize with the […]

  • A Dialogue

    Polysingularity manifests itself through a dialogue. Each exchange maintains a certain center of gravity through continuous reiteration of the intention. Often, the intention is  just to be polite or to stay within the common cultural or semantic field. When one wants to explore polysingularity of oneself, then the circular motion can be maintained and the […]

  • Strange Attractor

    Polysingularity is an intention realized through repetitive iteration where each consecutive turn carries a difference within itself. The intention is then the amalgamation of these differences accumulated over time. It’s the solidification of some occurrences from the many possible ones. A defined trajectory of differences in the state space of all the possible changes. A […]

  • Lotus Flower

    Polysingularity of movement manifests itself through slight deviations that nevertheless gravitate towards a temporary attractor state. This state would not exist if it was not for the deviations that define the essence of their polysingularity by refusing to leave from each other too far. Yet, every movement is a promise of a new state of […]

  • Continuous Improvement

    Management models are often represented by circular diagrams. The iterations scheme out continuous change through repetitive actions (evaluation, assessment, design, implementation, meta-management) that involve various agents (people, tools, processes). However, each iteration should not only be different, it should be better than the previous one. This how polysingularity of continuous improvement works: it subjugates replication […]

  • Drill

    The drill is moving and every trace that it leaves behind is different. Each iteration is different, but the intention progresses steadily both because and in spite of those differences. This capacity to move further through repetitions with differences is the essence of polysingularity and its main mechanism of replicating itself. Drill drawing by Justin […]

  • Glass Napkin

    Every subsequent moment has a trace of the previous one. Repetitive iterations maintain the essence through slight deviations that progressively shift the sound into the new plane. A plateau is maintained through polysingularity, but the insistence of difference to manifest itself at each step is shifting the plateau position in space.

  • Shining Light

    Any light is a manifestation of polysingularity: an electrical circuit is generated repetitively to produce the difference of potentials that has to be compensated with an increased intensity.
