Epidémiphilie


"I am open to you." means, I have the capacity to bear your investment […]; if you exceed this capacity I will be cracked, lacerated and laid open.
The Zoroastrians were among the first people who discovered and experienced the lacerating nature of openness and its contagious (or rather to say, the contaminative) space, thirsty to lacerate dimensions, crushing borders […].
[…] necrophilia and its systems of decay and germinal contamination cannot be coordinated with the other necro-oriented horizons of death. Necrophilia is life feasting on death or a life-infested death […].
[…] philia is neither possessing, nor possessable; it is only contagiously open because [of] the very bonds (of love, friendship, alliance, fondness, etc.) which make it philia, […], fond of (the very meaning philia) everything, engineering alliances, transmuting every process and relationship into a perverse love-making (the common meaning of necrophilia is a distorted apparition of this process) and finally, giving rise to inter-connective compositions, for compositions as Nick Land suggests are unfocused complexities (1) which do not allow the tendencies to gain victory or conquer the composition's complexity […]. In such a space (philia) nothing remains pure since tendencies which try to forge purities are all contaminated and infected; they are inter-connected by each other. […] necrophilia is an event germinated through this space, an instance of 'border collapse' and a perverse love […] which does not fail to incite becomings wherever it goes (contagion commotion). […] resistance, any isolationist struggle, uncommunicative reaction or opposition to remain unchanged (unmutated) becomes impossible […]. Infested by the epidemic […] bonds of philia, openness is triggered on all levels of its communicative lines but more on the plane of "being opened" than "being open" or "being open to". […] everything is terminally and ruthlessly softened and opened; this is what happens for necro- in necrophilia. Philia is an infection not in the term of invasion but unavoidable attraction […]; philia is the unground where […] everything is contagious, epidemic, compositional […]. Through philia space is experienced in its […] non-dwelling openness […].
