- Capitalism is less about economical and political structures and more about the language-of-production. The Modus Operandi explores the connection between social and capital machines using Deleuze and Guatarri's connective and disjunctive synthesis of recording. Questioning the philosophical tradition of language, history, and science, we can create new ways of living. The material soul is said to be more 'real' than the body itself. We've done this to ourselves because we wanted. We will observe e a 'pseudo-telekinetic' apparatus where we really do harm each other using our minds. With a new language coming out of phenomenology and schizoanalysis, we can describe how something so distasteful become funny at the same time. How does this all connect if now by signifying chains of codes flowing and braking, sucking and giving, repressing and reproducing. Social media maintains what capitalism has always been, a maintenance-machine, "an apparatus of capture" maintaining congruency. Similar to Deleuzian notion of the liberating desire from shackles of the philosophical tradition, a new system must liberate us through language and phenomenology. See how humor, appropriation, absence, autism, and death can give us this new language to which liberates us from the old philosophical tradition.
