The master speech
Behind the infinite sayings which abound in each cultural space there is a Speech with totalitarian claims. A dominating speech. A Master Speech. It is only seldom made explicit, yet it is omnipresent. It is 'the' Speech behind the speeches, the big 'prompter' behind our scenes. It dictates what is presentable and what is not, what is 'correct' and what is not. The unvoiced comment is its usual expression. It only proliferates behind the personal abdication. 'Nobody' is his empire.
The systemic totality of the Master Speech seems strangely to have escaped from the auto-comprehension of our modernity which believes to venture in an infinitely open exponential talking.
The crisis, today, turns us around the limits and entropy. And behind the crisis of a particular speech we perceive the crisis of its including one. And, in systemic interactivity, from including system to including system, we begin to perceive that it is the whole of the whole, the system of the system, which is in crisis. 'The' Speech itself of our modernity.
This speech functions indeed like a system. And like any particular system, it is located in a broader and more including mega-system. Something like its 'ecosystem'. However the anthropocentric claim of autonomy can only refuse this 'ecosystem' of a more including donation. Anthropocentric enclosure by which modernity is buckled on itself reveals thus to be a gigantic feedback by which the exit of the system is injected back in its entry. While claiming to function exponentially out from this autonomy.
The Speech thus buckled on itself and buckling its own exponential dynamics on itself functions in systemic enclosure with positive feedback. So this same Speech gets excited with the illusion of an indefinite creativity. In fact, however, being cut from the hot source of the 'other' and exhausting quickly its historically accumulated reserves of spiritual energy, it feeds more and more on its own waste. And this waste does not even have any more time to recycle. So you can just take pleasure in the absurdity of your own entropy. There is something like a 'anal stage' of autistic coprophagy…
Vast deployment of the sophistry of the cave, here you get the great tautological speech, auto-producer of sense and auto-justifier of itself, stage manager of an infinity of schizophrenic speeches which, in spite of their differences, however say basically only the same thing.
NewBabel… The tautological proliferation acquires its mediations - the 'media' precisely! - useful for unceasingly launching and starting again its own exponential dynamics. In direct clutch on the system of its exponential material production and finding there its own consistency.
The Master Speech produces more and more speeches which even take value by their consumption. Because this mercenary production of speech exists only through the consumer who himself exists only through his conditioning. By interposed surveys, a conditioned 'public' conditions the growth of its own conditioning. A speech 'launched on the market' can thus have 'snowball' effect provided that the advertising noise is instantaneously intense and that the 'target' has sufficiently conditioned reflexes. Once the impact of the process is ensured the quantitative surge devotes the quality which in turn boosts again the quantity. In the logic of the tautological feedback the bulimia continues with a same frenzy.
See our 'Master Thinkers' who fight so verbosely to occupy the stage of our cave… There are the trumpet players of claimed 'following singing days' becoming only disenchanted! There are the virtuous denouncers of the 'opium of people' whose people quickly start to denounce their opium! There are the sententious ones who take the myopia of their visions for the last word of history. There are the narrow-minded who do not put in doubt the 'impassable horizons' of their narrownesses. There are the street sweepers of the 'dustbins of 'history' who never finish emptying the dustbins. There are the skilful charlatans to state you sick of mythical complexes just to sell their placebos. There are the coprophages…
