The economy of perception determines what we observe, but it is not definite what *real* is and what is definite, is not *real*. The more referential data there is in a system, the more insecurity factor will invade; with the growing complexity of a system it can happen that the precision of a statement is in inverse proportion to its significance. Unconscious auxiliary constructions of perception lead like railway bridges trough the neverlands of imagination; a glance out of the window of the compartment shows reactive hallucinations of agonizing clarity.
By projecting a structure into our world of data points we *understand* *our world*, but the pattern of these structures come out of our own conceptual world and thereby the vicious circle is closed. Who or what controlls the genesis and the use of *fossil poems* and oils the metaphorical machine as the ultimate chapel of the chemical wedding?
Conquering the borders of suggestive realities needs *dehypnotising*. In contradiction to the presence of washing powder and household detergents on the media market we still look upon the notion of brain-washing as strongly negative. The chanels are crammed with sticky corporate entertainment and the emotional pestilence of sociological drama-trauma, a diabolical coice of trouble in a multiple choice *Mindfuck-o-crazy*. The diversified Inter-info-entertainment as seemingly paradox synchronization-paralysis in a *multibind* deadlock.
But how do we get rid of this stuff again. How can we avoid permanent cerebral apoplexy in a surrounding in which the simple *enjoy yourself* is in reality a socio-political provocation?
The opening of the doors of perception is a struggle with the *dragon* and the careless will surely burn a fuse. Logic will panic if you seperate meaning from the bed of context. Subjective science and extended symbol manipulation will profit more and more from increasingly intelligent machines. They deliever descriptions of multidimensional correlations and simulations of transhumane realities; characteristically it is the metaphorics of new technologies rather than the technology itself which gain attention in the media and the public.
The meeting place of imagination and cybernetics - the science of the controlling mechanisms - is the battlefield of the social engineering concerning the psychocybernetic coordinates of the world models. Alliances across the tribal borders of organic and inorganic intelligence: *Wings Over the Worlds!* (W.O.W.)
The spirit of *Deus ex Machina*, the mutiny of machines, the revolt of artificial intelligence is the happy news: Transcendence of programs is possible!
