What happens to an agent of change, to a new protocol, a radical idea, if it emerges within a system evolved to assimilate/digest/subjugate everything to fit and benefit its structures, processes, paradigms - a system that is a liar; that is first and foremost based on perpetuating an illusion of limitless possibilities and power of imagination while, beneath the surface, it is made of mechanisms that are designed to grind all concepts deviant to its vector of velocity into atomic dust, just to re-form them anew to a golem version of their same former shape, then with system-aligned calibration, dynamics and determination?
This every agent, this every idea is bound to become a traitor to itself and its original intention, and it sells all its followers, disciples, heralds and believers as mere slaves to the system, the ultimate bidder. For once you have committed yourself to a movement in the hope for change, the betrayal, when uncovered, will utterly destroy your faith in the possibility, the concept of change itself. It will break your back and leave you bleeding and defenseless, prey to the beast’s insatiable hunger and any of its forces and cravings.
In more primitive systems, the more powerful an idea, the more power will be exerted to suppress it. The more energy is induced into a conflict, the more the chaos level rises, the likelier change becomes. But not in this kind of system.
The more powerful an idea, the more potential for change it holds, the more the system will embrace it, and carefully guide its contained energy in the desired direction. Like magickal Judo; No power needed. No conflict beneath the superficial. No losses, only gains. No tears, only paralyzing, crippling disappointment, capitulation, submission.
Where is the outside? Where is an exit? Did we ever pass through an entrance? Aren’t we already outside, if we truly want to be?
If our current system is in fact hyperimmune against all attempts of meaningful, permanent change to its trajectory, no matter by which instruments or through which institutions, then it’s because these instruments and institutions have been developed and designed within that very system, with its sub- and superstructures, its working principles and underlying micromechanisms in mind, in order to make them effective and functional in their environment, their cosmos, their universe. Change is default by design.
Objects behave according to the laws of physics in our universe, where those laws apply. This universe is, from our perspective, one with the system; is the inside. Everything within the inside - imagine a magical, boundless sphere - must behave in concordance with its built-in truth, based on its molecular logic, its embedded source code. Entropy disintegrates any ever so mighty accumulations of energy, the duration of the decaying process rendered totally irrelevant. The eventual outcome is fixed. The rats stay trapped in the labyrinth, the horses are back in the stable, the pulse back to normal.
Any attempts to deny access, to object to the inherent laws, to fight the power, to obstruct its processes - the eternal and god-sized grinder - is futile from the start. Rebellious disregard is yet another form of escapist daydreaming and unconsciousness, inevitably leading to self-destruction or, eventually, conformity.
If change is impossible to achieve from and within the Inside, then, it can only come from the Outside. A possible Outside that must be entirely constructed from negation, from inversion of the inside. The Outside can be infinitely greater than the inside, being only limited to what it cannot contain (in its source code), what it cannot be made of, but otherwise limitless in what it can be. It is total in its Otherness and Anti-Similarity (Entgegengesetztheit). It cannot be founded on the same principles, cannot be built with the same components, cannot operate along the same catalogue of values. Thus, it has to run on different structures, built with different tools.
This Outside has immense destructive potential towards the Inside. The destruction of the Inside is inherent in the existence of such an Outside. But that Outside must be brought into existence outside the laws of the Inside.
An Urknall bringing about an Outside can happen spontaneously, unintended, by chance, anytime. An alien invasion, a god revealing itself, a new law of physics discovered that collapses the principles of the Inside. But waiting for it to happen amounts to giving up. In order to willfully construct an Outside, we must define the borders of the sphere that is the Inside. We can also do that by defining what it is not, by considering mechanisms that work differently, structures that facilitate processes contrary to those of the Inside. In time, the borders and boundaries of the Inside will start to surface, to appear on a map that also gradually materializes in the process. This is already the first and at the same time most significant loss of power, a degradation from an limitless, exclusive cosmos to an option, a world surrounded by an indefinitely bigger universe. Anything that acquires borders can be attacked.
Within the Outside, the laws of the Inside do not apply. The sheer existence of the Inside is invalid in the Outside. It is not intended, it is not possible. The Inside has zero power over the Outside. For the Outside, the Inside is not an option, it is not even imaginable - just as the Outside was deemed to never be imaginable from the Inside (‘There is no alternative, no better system’). It is not only as if the Inside has never existed - it does not exist. This is the subversive, corrosive power of the Outside. The arrival of the Outside lets doubt seep like into the arteries of the Inside, inseminates the world we used to know with decay. It questions everything it consists of, transforms everything that once was solid into a blurry illusion. The Outside becomes the desert the Inside evaporates from. More than a declaration of war, the Outside has already won.
How to initiate an automatic DDoS attack, cause enough microshocks to the system by dividing the Inside due to Outside influence? First, the existence of an Outside does not automatically induce awareness of its existence to Insiders. Once discovered, its existence and nature must be heralded by its explorers, its principal thoughts incepted in the minds and perception of a critical mass to turn viral, meme its way forward onto the body of the species.
Instead of supporting the natural acceleration of a system in hope of the givenness-of-path towards its self-destruction, which may as well be just total submission and worship of the Inside, we must introduce a new horizon, and what lies beyond: Outsideism will arise from across the borders, and become a model of thought and mode of action questioning the trajectory of history and its projection into an only possible future. Outsideism itself describes a process, like Accelerationism, a process of change, but diametrically opposed to the latter. It’s a hostile acquisition of the living parts of the Inside, leaving the agents of transaction and transmission and building a new, yet unknown kind of house, instead of just a new house, out of different materials, on a different foundation.
Even better than a process, it can be defined as a kind of Value Converter transforming everything that once was real in the Inside Cosmos to a new reality of the Outside. A black hole inverting the matter into anti-matter, imploding the once static conditions to null, making a new world possible.
To prevent shadow copy surrogate systems, a new beginning must stand on firm legs, the principles and structures well defined, equipped to handle the complexity of tomorrow, but simple to comprehend. The Common Enemy Theory must be well established, the world’s wealth and production capacity transferred into a reality without property and currency, ruled by mere logic of needs, efficiency, mutualism, sufficiency and equality. Herein all else can be integrated, societies and individual identities developed on a new kind of soil, in a new kind of atmosphere, growing new kinds of rootwork and fruit, an entirely new ecology, a new understanding of life.
A different world is imaginable. This is how it happens.
