The Infinite City

Politics of Speed

The author employs a philosophical approach in order to conceptualize the space and time in urban realms of the first decades of the 21st century. The so-called 'hi-tech society' has reached its saturation according to Paul Virilio, William Mitchell, Jean Baudrillard, Wolfgang Schirmacher, Marc Aug. Space and time are interchangeably main concerns and the new definitions of technological culture are critiqued. Jean-Luc Nancy has described how physical communities arrive at an inoperable stage. How those communities will function when altered for micro-urban concerns in virtual space is vital to city officials as well as related business enterprises. However, as issues of governance cast a shadow on communitary freedom, netizens seek more flexible derivations instead of smart(er) urban typologies. This urge for flexibility introduces the new notion of a politics of speed, for which a consensus from all states of power should be eternally pursued in the city of the near future. What kind of a city are we looking at in the 21st century? Or rather, what is, today, a real city? The answer should transcend the dialectics of the real and fantasy. Asli Telli Aydemir received a PhD (magna cum laude) in Media and Communication Studies from the European Graduate School.She was awarded a Young Scholar Grant by the European Science Foundation and recently appointed as a Research Fellow in Istanbul Bilgi University, where she works on an EU-funded project, entitled "Civic-web: Internet, Youth and Participation."

A beautiful lady who can only be seen from far away, a machine that generates an entire civilization, a king who loves the hidden life of an inanimate statue, a city that appears once a year across a great chasm, an ancient Korean king assassinated in the dark of the night, a ghost that haunts soldiers on the DMZ - these are just some of the marvels you will encounter in these stories from the transcultural and metafictional imagination of Minsoo Kang. In diverse narratives grouped under the titles of Tales from a Lost History, Fables of the Dream World, and Stories from an Imaginary Homeland, Kang explores the nature and possibilities of storytelling itself as he spins out variations on an episodic theme, reinterprets an old myth, and struggles with a past that seeks a voice in the present. The result is a marvelously surrealistic landscape where histories, ideas, and legends freely intermingle and dance to the music of wonder and longing.

The End is more than a commentary on Revelation and end time prophecies. It offers fresh insights and applications on these subjects for your daily life.

Poetic Memory

The Forgotten Self in Plath, Howe, Hinsey, and Glück

Author: Uta Gosmann

How do poems remember? What kinds of memory do poems register that factual, chronological accounts of the past are oblivious to? What is the self created by such practices of memory? To answer these questions, Uta Gosmann introduces a general theory of "poetic memory," a manner of thinking that eschews simple-minded notions of linearity and accuracy in order to uncover the human subject's intricate relationship to a past that it cannot fully know. Gosmann explores poetic memory in the work of Sylvia Plath, Susan Howe, Ellen Hinsey, and Louise Gluck, four American poets writing in a wide range of styles and discussed here for the first time together. Drawing on psychoanalysis, memory studies, and thinkers from Nietzsche and Benjamin to Halbwachs and Kristeva, Gosmann uses these demanding poets to articulate an alternative, non-empirical model of the self in poetry."

When Jesus comes back at the Second Coming, He will provide us with Antigravity vehicles, teleportation, Super intelligent Robots, Memory Absorption machines that will allow us to put memory from computers directly into our brain (no more school), He will provide us with Spaceships, some 7000 miles long or just one mile long. Jesus will provide the medical cure for aging or wrinkles (women take note). Also He will give us Transmutation capability to change dirt or any substance to any other substance. We can take dirt and rearrange it into- food, tomatoes, bananas, meat or a one ton car.- Anything you want- Just ask Him. Jesus will give the nations universes to live in. United African Continent has already petitioned Him for 10 billion galaxies in this universe and a trillion universes in the Mega, Mega, universe. What will China, Russia, Vietnam, Iran, Japan etc petition Jesus when He comes back ? The Parallel futures of the White race , the Black race and the Asian race. They will all be given universes to live in by The God of Israel. Jesus was Melchizedec ( Heb 7). So He must have been King of Salem in Genesis. Jesus was also King over the Canaanites ! Satan has never been to hell and when he does go there at the Second coming it is to be beaten and thrown out of hell by the inhabitants thereof. (Is 14). The Bible says it took God Generations (Gen 2:4)- not just Seven days to create the earth. That means Evolutionists are right about the time span and method. Theologians misunderstood. God designed and guided Evolutionary process is correct. Generations is to be noted. Where is Jesus? Whatever happened to the end time war between Christians and the U.S.S.R.? Did you know during Moses plagues the God of Israel turned Satans nation to look like frogs, bugs and lice etc. What did you think real demons looked like? Read this book for more.
