Schizoid{Entropy:Particle Physics :: Political:Negentropy}. Drunken Risibility


In my philosophical and physics studies, negentropy (entropy in reverse engineered mode) was always pitted against entropy, and smuggling one notion of order and disorder into the other discipline was always a matter of convenience, rather than coming to terms with the inconvenient truth. In sum, entropy, randomness, disorder or stochasticity of the universe always increases, and alas! my dream of correlating the entropy of the astrophysics with the illusory negentropy of the political theory often finds denominations in dreams and abstruse generalisations. This has been a contention I have been flirting over with for a quite a few number of years, where the idea of capitalism is likened to a crossing the threshold as in event horizon of a black hole. I have in the past dabbled with politics and black holes and similarities, if not congruence. Somewhere, like a narcissist, I am aware of brutal sense I make, albeit in no accordance with any affiliations. Thats in accordance with turmoiling. Talking of the turmoil, its the media that makes the schizoid of me in tune with working the grassroots, protest movements, the vacuous and increasingly disillusioned left. We are living in a world of mass media which daily exposes society’s innate hypocrisy, its contradictions and the apparent failure of almost every facet of our social and political life. The young have seen their “activist” participatory democracy turn into its antithesis – nihilistic virtues, and nothing is more vicious than this. This is the extension of the practice of “murketing” to political action itself. Pop fascination with the role of social media in protest movements only strengthens this development. Sartre had said “Hell is the OTHER People”, but WE have convinced ourselves of Schizophrenia. QED.
