That said, this is actually a really intelligent article. It is also a real piece of cogent theory (unlike "Cyclonopedia," which was like sifting through the remains of the author's vomit to discover what he had digested). It would be perfect if Negarestani didn't fall back on plugging his half-baked "novel" to wrap up the text... but I recommend it anyway.
|oh what the hell, I guess it was alright.|
From "All of a Twist" by Reza Negarestani at the Weird Fiction Review:
"Now if narration is both ‘to know’ and ‘to relate’, not only is the narration of/about the contingent reality twisted with a logic endemic to tales of spirit possession (when I think, it is actually the outsider, the demon inside me that thinks through me), but also it is unfolded with the dynamics inherent to conspiracy theories (all relations, adventures and plots are twistedly driven by a secret agreement – or complicity – between contingent and indifferent objective worlds… the more epical the narration, the thicker the conspiracy, the more elliptical the depth of the complicity)..."
