(in the belly of the beast)
to explore the future of garbage, we must study, test and utilize current garbage, and garbage environments (GE's), including those of the information realm. Even our narrative will be crafted out of straight up shit- the partly digested soundbytes of actors and cellular voices, like a plastic mashup in an oceanic vortex. What brilliant scripts are being written in these happenstance chaotic seas (both literal and metaphorical)? What creatures are evolving to mimic this cut up environment (both biochemical and memetic)?
what scripts do we want to select for ourselves out of the digestive vortex?
how we deal with garbage has to do with all other societal systems-
is it possible to harness these large scale structures so as to make life for everyone a little less shitty?
does the health of the planet depend upon discovering new incentives for the 1%?
the future of garbage is in the sediment of the earth's oceans. we can take a core through history from successive cross sections of Society in the way that we can take a core of ocean sediment to study earth's past climate. as we peer down the borehole (the infohole), we can study the internal workings of the beast and of ourselves who are the organs of digestion.
we will create a scale model of an entire GE, to study the interactions between the natural world and the man-made one.
we will observe this system of public digestion and elimination and identify any novel creatures that swim in this soup of plastics (that lies at the shallow end of the meme pool).
we will, necessarily, model small sections of the great GE, or wider sections at more limited resolutions. at the anatomical scale, we wish to create a robotic model of an anus to study the process of efficient waste elimination so we can make some primo shit. perhaps in the future, as in the remote past, there will be fusion powered anuses that will provide all of our energy needs.
finally, from the same coloniscopic perspective, but lower down the shit hole, we will analyze (GET IT??!!) the current political situation.
when we have our initial results, we will show them to the world that we know...
can an organized system exist within The Belly of the Beast, and even profit it's host?
